The following is an edited update from Catholic attorney Sharon Bourassa regarding the situation in the Miami archdiocese. (Note: This statement contains a graphic description.)
On March 21, 2006, Stephen Brady of Roman Catholic Faithful drove from Illinois to Fort Lauderdale to meet with Christifidelis members from All Saints Parish and parishioners from several other parishes -- St. Elizabeth of Hungary, St. Vincent and St. Augustine's. The subject of Brady's visit was to discuss strategies for dealing with the gay subculture that has infiltrated the Miami archdiocese (as well as many other dioceses across the U.S.), abuse of parish monies, corruption, and non-adherence to Catholic teaching.
According to a group of priests who remain faithful to Rome, 90 percent of our priests in the Miami archdiocese are non-celibate gays who steal and who own luxury properties. They are known to the hierarchy, and they are bringing their agenda into all levels of the archdiocese. The number seems extremely high, but over and over again, the underground of heterosexual priests say the figure is accurate. This 90 percent figure, according to these priests, is in the parishes, grammar schools, hospitals, nursing homes, the chancery, high schools and colleges. One priest told us if the non-celibate gays were removed, we would have only ten Catholic churches in union with Rome. What we see is not what is. The good priests who keep in contact with me say that 70 percent of the U.S. bishops are homosexual. Five of the South Florida bishops are homosexual. This is very difficult for the heterosexual priests in the archdiocese. Brady suggested the following:
When you get evidence, do a press release. He will help us do this.
Obtain your parishs directory. Brady then will print on a postcard the message we want to get across, and he will have it mailed from Roman Catholic Faithful headquarters in Illinois. This way, the archdiocese knows that Roman Catholic Faithful is behind the endeavor. Brady has been very successful in getting bishops and priests removed. Mr. Brady said, Follow the garbage. Pick up their garbage. They are arrogant and they will put it out at the church, the rectory and their luxury homes. This is how Brady found a bishop on a pornographic Web site. One of the priests in a Miami parish is in a photo with his penis hanging out from his shorts. This priest is now out on bail for sexually abusing a minor -- and there is more to come. Another priest runs nude on a beach in Miami.

Well that nothing. 100% of Attorneys are whores.
And they would know this - how?
Personal interaction with all the U.S. bishops?
Visions from above?
yea, it's lacking many facts and sources.
and, the one thing they can PROVE they did not and that was the priest who owns the nudist colony. There are plenty of records in the local and county governments which can prove that. The authors chose not to do so.
30% of the bishops are straight?
No. "Celibate" is not a sexual preference, it is a commitment, a sacrifice. Priests are just as human as any of us, and being "asexual", which is more what you are getting at, I think, is not required or desirable. OTOH, homosex is a disordered condition, and NOT something that is desirable in a Roman Catholic priest.
A group of priests huh. Well that settles it. It MUST be true! If these priests don't want to come out and say it like it is then just maybe it isn't.
That percentage is ridiculous! Is this a leftis organization/author?
...not in Philadelphia.
You would think Ms. Bourassa, having been employed by Broward Legal Aid (your tax dollars at work) for more than 20 years would be familiar with the use of investigators to uncover evidence. That seems basic for an attorney with experience.
Shadowy figures whispering secret allegations are all well and good in fiction but that won't get the job done. I don't even need 'beyond a reasonable doubt', just give me something tangible that supports a reasonable suspicion.
"Heterosexual" is a tautology. It just means a man who is inwardly aware of normal sexual attraction to women.
In the Western Church, a priest should be normal, unmarried and chaste (celibate.)
In the Eastern Church, a priest should be normal, married, and chaste (monogamous.)(Or unmarried, as above.)
That said, I suspect it's irresponsible to post this kind of scandalous report which is based on 2nd or 3rd hand hearsay, with no named accusers and no evidence.
It's not a tautology but rather a Freudian slip, which, as everyone knows, reveals the true nature and intentions. So they are either sodomites or fornicators...
Many heterosexuals are chaste.
