"AIDS Killing Many Priests, Survey Finds". . . . Associated Press
Kansas City, Mo. -- Roman Catholic priests in the United States are dying from AIDS-related illnesses at a rate FOUR TIMES HIGHER than the general population, and the cause is often concealed on their Death Certificates, a newspaper reported Sunday (January 30th, 2000.)
In the first of a three-part series, the Kansas City Star said Death Certificates and interviews with experts indicated several hundred priests have died of AIDS-related illnesses since the mid-1980s and hundreds more are living with HIV, the virus that causes the disease.
"I think this speaks to a failure on the part of the church", said Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Gumbleton of the Archdiocese of Detroit, MI. "Gay (homosexual) priests and heterosexual priests didn't know how to handle their sexuality, their sexual drive. And so they would handle it in ways that were not healthy." "How to be celibate and to be gay (homosexual) at the same time, and how to be celibate and heterosexual at the same time, that's what we were never really taught how to do. And that was a major failing."
* When asked about their sexual orientation, 75 percent said they were heterosexual, 15 percent admitted they were homosexual, 5 percent more admitted they were bisexual, and another 5 percent apparently didn't want to say. That equates to a possible 25 percent of Catholic priest that are at the very least sexual misfits.
* But the truly sad part isn't just the high percentage of AIDS or sexual perversions within the Catholic church, although that is extremely sad. The truly sad part is the fact that the church leaders don't even recognize the fact (OR care) that you cannot be homosexual or bi-sexual and a True Worshipper at the same time (see "Homosexuality"). That Christopagan priests are walking around in their long robes, smiling and greeting everyone like a Judas, while sitting in the high seats of their high offices and at the dinner tables, all the while they are perverting those who would trustingly come unto them for Instruction in Righteousness (which they know nothing of). Apparently no one in the leadership of the Roman church understands that you cannot be Self-centered and Yahweh-centered at the same time, and that the Catholic church does Not have the authority to change the commandments or traditions of our Creator G-d, Yahweh.
Luke 20:46-47 "Beware of the scribes, who desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces, the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts; who devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers: these will receive greater condemnation."
* True Worshippers are like Daniel in a Lion's Den . . . . . . .
1 Peter 5:6-11
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of G-d, that he may exalt you in due time;
7 casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you.
8 Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary the devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
9 Withstand him steadfast in your faith, knowing that your brothers who are in the world are undergoing the same sufferings.
10 But may the G-d of all grace (who called you to his eternal glory by Messiah Yahshua), after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
11 To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.
11 He gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and
some, evangelists; and some, shepherds and teachers;
