Viva La Revolution!!
A priest who taught at our seminary recently gave a talk at my parish. He did not dress like a priest, nor did he give any indication that he was in agreement with the Church's teachings on anything. His talk was on Human Sexuality and it was terrible. There was not a single mention of the Pope's theology of the body, nor much positive talk on anything. He told people that the Church's teachings on birth control, homosexuality, etc... would someday change. Overall, the talk was so boring I was having trouble staying awake. It reminded me of the Monty Python skit with John Cleese teaching young students about sex and they were falling asleep, doodling, daydreaming. etc.. In today's diocesan newspaper, I saw this priest has been "assigned" to be a pastor in a parish, which I am assuming means he will no longer be teaching at the seminary. He will do far less damage at a parish than the place where future priests and Church leaders are formed. He is an example of the type of dissenter that does not belong in any seminary. Our seminary and diocese is continuing the process of cleaning up the mess that Bishop McGann left.
