A Catholic priest who demonstrated his opposition to the Church’s promotion of social justice issues, such as the pro-gay agenda, by burning an LGBT rainbow flag has been forcibly driven out of The Church:
Just hours ago, new Chicago Auxiliary Bishop Mark Bartosic arrived unannounced at Resurrection Parish on Chicago’s Northwest side and told Pastor Paul Kalchik that he had just minutes to get his belongings together and vacate the premises or the police would be called to arrest him for trespassing.
…Fr. Kalchik had been ordered by Cardinal Cupich and the archdiocese to report for psychiatric counseling and perhaps confinement yesterday after controversy broke concerning the exorcism and burning of a “gay rainbow flag” on parish grounds last week.
Fr. Kalchik had also called for Catholics to “boycott” masses celebrated by Cardinal Cupich due to Cupich’s alleged involvement in the current clerical sex abuse scandal.
The flag – a rainbow with a superimposed cross – had been unveiled above the altar by previous pastor Fr. Daniel Montalbano in 1991 to signal that the parish would be “gay friendly.” Later taken down, it was rediscovered only recently by Fr. Kalchik.
…Fr. Kalchik had written of his own psychological trauma after being molested as a boy and as a young adult by two men – one of them a priest – in separate incidents.
The parishioners outside told me that Fr. Kalchik, who has been at Resurrection Parish for eleven years, has the full support of his parish.
In flagrant disregard to what The Bible clearly states about homosexuality, the Catholic Church, despite being plagued by allegations of homosexuality and pedophilia among its priests, has gone all-in on the pro-LGBT agenda that is au courant in society today. But then again, the achilles heal of the Church has always been creating doctrines that contradict The Bible.
If the Church were to drive out all closeted gay priests, there would be virtually no priests left to even say mass. That the Church has been infiltrated by degenerates is undeniable at this point, as its public endorsement of gays and transsexuals makes clear. But then again, Notre Dame University is now pro-abortion, so the term “Catholic” has become virtually meaningless at this point.
