CATHOLIC PRIESTS DYING OF AIDS IN RECORD NUMBERS!
Greetings everyone in these last days. PLEASE bear with me in this newsletter. This is not an easy subject to write about. You would think that we would not have to address such filth when speaking about those that would claim Jesus as Lord. But once again we can thank the Roman Church for dragging the Christian walk through the sewage treatment of hell. Again, the Vatican has given us concrete evidence to share with their followers that they are NOT in the Church Jesus Christ founded. So, as always, share this Newsletter with someone that is unaware of what's going on in Rome. I am sure that many of us reading this Newsletter know someone that could benefit from the Scriptural Truths expressed herein.
Something has been rather evident in the last few days in the media surrounding the Vatican. It appears the Roman Catholic Church is once again in the spotlight in such a way that causes disgust in the hearts of Christians worldwide. It's bad enough we have a President in the spotlight in decadent ways, but to have a "church" (and I use the term loosely) that 'claims' to be the church that Jesus Christ started in the spotlight for vile and disgusting behavior is just plain sickening! Time and time again we have heard about Catholic priests being convicted for molesting little boys that have been entrusted to them by their loyal Catholic parents. How often have we read about priests being sued for this type of decadent behavior. Or what of the Roman Catholic Church itself being sued and LOOSING millions of dollars for allowing these priests to continue as priests even after they have been caught molesting young boys. Who doesn't remember the most recent high profile case in Dallas Texas with former priest Rudolph "Rudy" Kos, who was sentenced to life in prison for molesting four altar boys between 1981 and 1992? That particular lawsuit cost the Vatican 130 MILLION dollars! Then we also find out some years back that the Insurance company for the Roman
Church has dropped them in the area of child molestation lawsuits because it's happening far too often for the insurance company to handle. Imagine that! The Vatican can no longer be insured against lawsuits by their OWN FOLLOWERS of this manner because they are repeat offenders AGAINST THEIR OWN FOLLOWERS! And they claim this to be a church that Jesus Christ Himself
started? Is the prophetic statement Jesus declared clicking deeper? He said, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." (Matthew 7:15) And Jesus also said that the Church He starts would NOT allow the "gates of hell" to prevail.
(Matthew 16:18) It is "by their fruits" we shall know them people. Are these child molesting fruits CHRISTIAN fruits? Of course not. Therefore, how long shall the loyal Catholics stand between two opinions? Either it IS a Christian Church or it is NOT. If the Jesus of the Bible be Lord, then follow Him: but if the 'Jesus' of Catholicism be Lord, then follow him.
So I ask, is homosexuality a problem in the Roman Catholic church? It appears to be the case. Over the last few years the Roman Catholic church has openly and rather disgustingly declared it's approval of the homosexual lifestyle. A lifestyle that is not only bluntly condemned in the Old Testament, but in the New Testament as well, So, why is it a 'professed' Christian church is having such a brood of problems with such an abomination as this? Need I ask?
"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them" Leviticus 20:13
People the world over claim this passage as obsolete mainly because it is found within the pages of the Old Testament. Even though the Lord God states ever so plainly in Malachi 3:6 that, "I am the LORD, I change not;..." Just because it's in the Old Testament, doesn't mean its abolished. If that were so, why did Jesus and His Apostles before AND AFTER His resurrection and ascension quote so often from the Books of the Old Testament? Also if the Old Testament is no longer valid on this subject, then have the Roman Church explain these verses...
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet
1 Corinthians 6:9,10
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Timothy 1:8-10
But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
It is easily seen in the New Testament that the sin of homosexuality is still considered an abomination unto the Lord. Yet the Catholic church has been wrestling with this sin for hundreds and hundreds of years. And now they are even stating to the world that being a homosexual is no longer considered sin! How do they justify doing this?
2 Thessalonians 2:10-11, "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:"
They justify doing it with an unBiblical twist on God's Word. Simply put, 'a lie' is what they base this on because that's all they believe. You can actually use this passage in a multitude of ways when speaking of Catholic dogma, however I will "stick to the subject" at hand for now. In an article about gays in San Francisco we see Bishop Levada making the following statements...
"Catholic Charities has more than $5 million worth of contracts with the city, but for Levada, more important is Catholic doctrine that says while simply being a homosexual is not a sin... Chgo SunTimes Feb. 16, 1997 Section Religion p. 34 art. S.F., Catholic Charities battle over benefits
for gay partners"
This statement is in direct conflict with what the Word of God reveals as Truth. And one would wonder why the Roman church would take such a stand and make such an open and bold statement that can be easily thwarted in the Word. Well, reading further in the same article it's revealed why Roman Catholic Bishop Levada would make such an error filled Un-Biblical remark.
"Gays and Lesbians are a significant voting bloc in San Francisco." -Ibid
Did you notice the beginning of the article? It states the church has more than $5 million worth of contracts with the city of San Francisco. And as I am sure many are aware, San Francisco is predominately gay. Do you think if they would have kept the faith according to the Truth revealed in God's Word they would have jeopardized their meal ticket in this city by being voted down? ABSOLUTELY! It's so sad when a church that is trusted by billions decides to crash downward by putting the 'almighty' dollar before the Almighty Creator and His written Word. Isn't this always the case with this church? It always places it's desires before that of the God they profess to worship. But again, I think I should stick to the subject eh? Think of all the trusting souls within this church that may have been wrestling with homosexuality in their lives, or the lives of their loved ones. They just received the final 'ok' they needed to make the decision whether to explore this burning sensation of sin from within themselves. The other outlook is, their family and friends have just been told 'it's no longer sin' for them to walk this way. So why bother preaching to their loved ones about the dangers of their sin filled lifestyle? Another article on the same subject goes even further in its acceptance of immorality over godliness.
Cardinal Bernardin states...
"...gays are children of God, that they should be loved and that Catholics ought to defend their rights. ... God's plan for sexuality ... is best fulfilled in a stable union... But to teach that in no way is to belittle a person who may have a homosexual orientation." Chgo SunTimes Oct. 21, 1994 p. 18 art. Bernardin Letter Tackles Hot Topics for Teenagers
I am NOT saying we should go out and show hatred toward every homosexual we meet. Not at all! That is not what Jesus Christ would have us do. But to say they are the 'children of God' lends one to believe this lifestyle is accepted by God. A child of God is one that believes and follows their
Heavenly Father in ALL aspects of life including sexuality. For the Bible tells us how to be the children of God. Ephesians 5:1 says we must "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;" If we walk in conflict to His Word, how can we be His children. How can we say we are FOLLOWING God when
we walk against His will? Reading a few verses further we find the true description of one who would delight in this sinful lifestyle. Ephesians 5:6 states... "Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience." They are NOT 'children of God," they are 'children of disobediance.' For Bernardin to say that all Catholics must defend their rights, would mean all Catholics must now acknowledge sin as an alternative lifestyle approved by their church. He is openly saying that THEY HAVE THE RIGHT to live as homosexuals
and fellow Catholics must DEFEND their right to be gay. And in the same breath he is saying they are NOT in sin when he states, "God's plan for sexuality is best fulfilled in a stable union." In other words, he is saying this may not be the "best" union that God's plan for sexuality entails. Using the word "best" here is to imply there are "other" ways within God's plan besides the "best" way. The word "best" is strategically placed in this statement. The way I see it, the word "best" here should be REPLACED with the word, "ONLY." Then and only then is it made clear what Scriptures define as a stable union, assuming of course the word "stable" is to imply 'man & woman." But of course, this is not the desire of the Catholic church. For all areas must remain "open" so as to allow for soul coveted implications that sin can be grasped as a desired choice sanctioned by the church. This eventually results in 100% alegiance to be granted unto Satan in the deepest areas of the heart when the "Christian" believes that which he or she is doing is no longer sin. And this is one very lethal mistake. To mock a mighty God is just plain stupid! His Word has NO gray areas when speaking of this sin or ANY sin. The fact of the matter is this. The Roman Church says the homosexual lifestyle is not a sin and the faithful Catholics MUST believe that what their leaders say is true even if it can be proven otherwise. In fact there are NUMEROUS situations in the Roman Catholic Doctrinal statements as well that can be proven in direct conflict with God's Word simply by opening a Bible. Yet, the faithful Catholic ignores this? Could the following quote have anything to do with it...?
"...we should always be ready to accept this principal: I will believe that the white that I see is black, if the hierarchical Church defines it as such." -The Spirit Exercies of St. Ignatius, p. 141, -By Ignatius de Loyola
It appears this is the case. This is exactly what got me to LEAVE this church many years ago. I recall reading in the Bible certain doctrinal facts. Then I read in the Catechism that the Roman Church was teaching the exact opposite of what Scriptures taught. They DO tell you that black is white! And they DO teach that you better believe it or else!
The Roman Catholic Church can tell you to your face they have no problem with Homosexuality. MANY of their Priests can look you square in the eye and tell you bold face lies that they are not gay. They can even recruit their parishioners to go on an all out campaign proclaiming the Roman Church is not having a problem with "gay" Priests. They can even alert the media and say that the gay lifestyle is not necessarily sin so that the 'obviously' gay Priests can be accepted as gay but not 'in' sin. They can tell you bold face lies that their Priests do NOT practice the Homosexual lifestyle as well. But the fact of the matter is this. LIES ARE VERY EASY TO EXPOSE! And how easy are they to expose? WITH DOCUMENTED TRUTH...
> REPORT: PRIESTS HIT HARD BY HIDDEN AIDS EPIDEMIC
(AP) -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, The Kansas City Star reported in a series of stories that started Sunday.
> CATHOLIC PRIESTS ARE DYING OF AIDS, OFTEN IN SILENCE
Hundreds of Roman Catholic priests across the United States have died of AIDS-related illnesses, and hundreds more are living with HIV, the virus that causes the disease. The actual number of AIDS deaths is difficult to determine. But it appears priests are dying of AIDS at a rate at least four times that of the general U.S. population, according to estimates from medical experts and priests and an analysis of health statistics by The Kansas City Star. The deaths are of such concern to the church that most dioceses and religious orders now require applicants for the priesthood to take an HIV-antibody test before their ordination.
Through the years, the issue of AIDS deaths among priests has been so sensitive that many of those who later died kept their illnesses a secret. Some death certificates listed AIDS-related conditions such as pneumocystis pneumonia but never mentioned the disease itself. Other certificates were
Exactly how many priests have died of AIDS or are infected with HIV is unknown, in part because many suffer in solitude. When priests do tell their superiors, the cases generally are handled quietly, either at the priests' requests or because church officials are reluctant to discuss them. In 1995, Bishop Emerson J. Moore left the Archdiocese of New York and went to Minnesota, where he died in a hospice of an AIDS-related illness. His death certificate attributed his death to "unknown natural causes" and listed his occupation as "laborer" in the manufacturing industry. After a Minnesota AIDS activist filed a complaint, officials changed the cause of death to "HIV-related illness." The occupation, however, has not been corrected.
Farley Cleghorn, an epidemiologist with the Institute of Human Virology in Baltimore, said it was common practice with early cases not to disclose AIDS as a cause of death. "The first priest that I saw with AIDS -- this was back in 1982 -- we did not put AIDS on the death certificate, because they wanted
us not to," Cleghorn said. "The law says that you have to be truthful in that it's a legal document, and if you lie on a legal document, you could incur penalties. But there is no auditing procedure for a death certificate. And without lying, you could say that the terminal event was the stopping of the heart and the cessation of respiration."
The Star alone -- through death certificates and interviews with fellow priests and family members -- found information on about 100 priests who have died of AIDS nationwide since the mid-1980s. And many priests and medical experts now agree that at least 300 priests have died. That translates into an annualized AIDS-related death rate of about 4 per 10,000 -- four times that of the general population's rate of roughly 1 per 10,000 and about double the death rate of the adult male population.
Other statistics and experts suggest that those estimates are too conservative.
For example, the annualized death rate of priests confirmed by The Star to have died of AIDS in Kansas and Missouri from 1987 to 1999 is 7 per 10,000, or seven times that of the general population. That death rate is consistent with the rate calculated by The Star after reviewing death certificates of priests who died in California, Missouri and Massachusetts in 1995. The finding: six priests -- or 7.3 per 10,000 -- died of AIDS in those states that year. The AIDS death rate of the general population in
those three states in 1995 was 1.8 per 10,000. A.W. Richard Sipe, a former priest who has spent more than 30 years studying sexuality issues in the church, thinks that about 750 priests nationwide have died of such illnesses. That would translate into an AIDS-related death rate eight times that of the general population. Joseph Barone, a New Jersey psychiatrist and AIDS expert, puts the number of U.S. priests who have died at 1,000 -- nearly 11 times the rate of the general population.

ELEVEN TIMES THE RATE OF THE GENERAL POPULATION OF THE USA? 11 TIMES? Is this not an open and shut case people? Does this make one wonder if in fact Cardinal Bernadin died of AIDS instead of Cancer as the Vatican states? Do you recall Steven Cook coming forward some years back proclaiming that he was molested by Bernadin? Do you also remember that Cook was dying of AIDS
when he came forward? And do you also recall that his "memory" suddenly changed the very next day AFTER receiving a large sum of money from the Church? And finally, do you also recall that Bernadin died soon afterwards of what the Catholic church is calling "Cancer?" If Cook really did have bogus "implanted" memories. Is it possible to remove such memories WITHIN HOURS? Are there not documented cases the World over that to remove such artificially implanted memories is an ongoing tedious task that can take months and USUALLY years to correct successfully if at all? So how is it Cook's memory is "corrected" within hours? Does the Roman Church have a miraculous cure? Nope... it's just simple GREED! Money can 'remove' many problems in the lives of those it controls? (they think) Even if none of the prophecies that openly prove this Church is being controlled by the Beast were ever to be uttered, this evidence of decadent behavior should be proof enough for those loyal Catholics still trapped within the walls of this Church TO GET OUT NOW! These vile and putrid fruits speak volumes unto the heart that this is NOT the Church of Jesus Christ. Denial of this FACT must end in their hearts NOW. This church has been puffing up it's chest proclaiming itself "Another god on Earth" for so long that finally it has come to a place of open and apparent JUDGMENT before the eyes of man! And according to the book of Revelation this open evidence of evil within this church is going to get more graphic in the days to come. How long will this church of apparent evil pronounce they walk as Jesus Christ proclaimed His children would walk? How long will they torture, murder, molest, deceive, and destroy? How long shall this church mock a Mighty and ever living God? Well, at the rate of 11 times that of the national average, it appears not much longer...
Pray for them!
Pray they get out now.
Pray their eyes open.
Pray for them!
Some of you may come against those that believe it's ok to be gay and a priest as long as they remain chaste. In fact "Fr. A.M. Greeley" a Roman Catholic Priest and columnist for the Chicago Southtown Economist states...
"I am skeptical about the Star's methodology. But I don't find it difficult to believe that the AIDS death rate among priests is higher (thought still relatively low). Clearly, a higher percentage of priests are homosexuals than in the national population (5 percent)... There is no reason, as far as I'm concerned, why gays can't be ordained. There have been gay priests, gay bishops, gay popes and, probably, gay saints. There are many priests with a homosexual orientation who are generous, sensitive and excellent priests. However, if a gay man becomes a priest he should give up the gay "lifestyle" and live as a celibate like (most) heterosexual priests do. The Roman Catholic Church has gotten itself into this problem because, in the present shortage of vocations, it decided to ordain large numbers of gay men, many of whom were either unwilling or unable to honor the celibate commitment. Some of these immediately after ordination returned to the gay lifestyle, which included gay bars, gay rings and gay lovers." -Priests and AIDS Sunday, February 6, 2000 By Andrew M. Greeley. (Andrew M. Greeley is a Roman Catholic priest, author and University of Chicago sociologist. His column on political, church and social issues appears each Sunday on the Opinion Page of the Daily Southtown. )
Well, Scriptures can easily prove the error here. A gay person is NOT a Christian. Therefore the Gay priest is NOT a Christian. Just because they "claim" to be chaste makes no differance. And even if they WERE chaste. THEY ARE POSSESSED BY A DEMON. For to be Gay is to be possessed. How else can you explain that which is an abomination unto God being embraced with no thought of peril by one CLAIMING to be His child? Would not the very Spirit that wrote the Word warn Him of the dangerous path? For has it not been written that the GAY do NOT inherit the Kingdom of Heaven?
1 Corinthians 6:9-10, "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
Therefore, if they be "effeminate" they will NOT inherit Heaven. So I ask, how can the loyal Catholic trust a man that is HELL BOUND to preach unto them? WARN THEM!
Ezekiel 3:17-20, "Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand."

Fr. Domingo was arrested today in Chicago Illinois for sexually molesting a 21 year old Mexican man. The man has since fled to Mexico to prevent further embarrassment. Reporters at 1048 N. Cambpell Chicago stated that Fr. Domingo stripped naked, and held the fully clothed 21 year old down on a bed in the Rectory of the church. Fr. Domingo then proceeded to rub his naked body all over the man while stating, "It is the will of God that I do this." Parishoners of St Mark Parish are saddened by the event. -FOXnews Chgo. 1-28-00
> Gay 'perversion' comments land Cardinal in row
by Geoff Meade
The leader of Scotland's Roman Catholics was last night under fire from all directions over his description of homosexual relationships as "perverted". One of Cardinal Thomas Winning's priests disclosed he was homosexual and claimed a secret network of gay priests existed under the noses of senior churchmen. And the Cardinal was condemned by Labour MP and ally of the church George Galloway, who said his words "could have dripped from the lips of any raving bigot".
Fr Brown, of St Margaret's Church, South Queensferry, near Edinburgh, said a network of gay priests had been set up to offer each other support and told Cardinal Winning he was wrong. "I've been a priest for 30 years, but I've been gay for longer," he said. "There are a number of gay priests like me throughout Scotland and the feeling is that enough is enough. "The word perverted is deeply offensive and it seems in the eyes of my church it's all right to be and not to do."
"Cardinal Winning is not fit for the great office that he holds."
> World-first life creation
By correspondents in London
SCIENTISTS have made the world's first synthetic DNA, the molecules that form the blueprint for life. The breakthrough means that the first artificial organisms could be "born" within two years and raises the prospect of humans redesigning whole species, including themselves. The DNA was created at the University of Texas, where researchers have mapped out the exact way it will be configured to create the world's first man-made creature. The researchers are planning to create a series of designer bugs, with super-efficient mechanisms for infecting target tissues, such as cancer tumours, and then killing them. Some would infect the human gut to produce vitamin C. Critics, however, have warned that the scientists risk unleashing a microbe master race with increased powers to infect humans and wildlife.

> VERMONT'S TOP COURT BACKS RIGHTS FOR SAME-SEX COUPLES
The Vermont Supreme Court ruled Monday that gay couples must be granted the same benefits and protections given married couples, a decision called the first of its kind in the nation. The court said the Legislature will determine whether such benefits will come through formal marriage or a system of domestic partnerships. "We hold that the state is constitutionally required to extend to same-sex couples the common benefits and protections that flow from marriage under Vermont law," the Vermont court's decision said.

> Abortionist backs sex selection
By JULIE-ANNE DAVIES
Monday 15 November 1999
An Australian practitioner of late-term abortions said yesterday that sex selection was a valid reason for the procedure. Dr Grundmann, the only private late-term abortion practitioner in Australia, said sex selection was a "real and important indication for some ethnic and religious groups" when considering late terminations. The procedure, which takes three days to complete, involved first the death of the foetus through a fatal injection of air into the heart, Dr Hern said. On the third day the woman was given drugs to induce labor and the foetus delivered by forceps. Abortions after 26 weeks were only carried out because of foetal abnormality, foetal demise, severe medical complications, rape, incest or mental health problems. (Mental health of MOTHER that is!) Meanwhile, the federal Aboriginal Affairs Minister, Senator John Herron, himself a doctor, called on state premiers to ban late abortions. "The time has come to stop talking about late term abortion or partial birth abortion and call it what it is- infanticide," Senator Herron said. http://www.theage.com.au/news/19991115/A43712-1999Nov14.html
