'Married' in April, Fr. Giuliano Costalunga is yet to be laicized by his bishop
Italian newspapers broke the news this week that a Venetian priest recently married his male partner in Spain, but remains a priest in his diocese. Father Giuliano Costalunga, a 48-year-old priest from the diocese of Verona, married his Spanish partner Pablo in April on one of the Canary Islands.
Costalunga was in charge of the parishes of Selva di Progno e Giazza until three years ago. Old press reports show that he created controversy among his flock for being "too modern" and for "having divided the community." Corriere della Sera described him as "a young priest with revolutionary ideas," and some of the parishioners referred to him as "the devil dressed in holy water." The priest even went on a local TV show in 2015 to talk about the reactions to his leadership and present a dance group he helped create in his parishes.
In April, he married his "notable collaborator," an assistant he had met during his years of active ministry.

Pope where are you?
Defrock and excommunicate; probably two things that would never happen under Pope Francis.
What a sick mental disorder!!!
Who is he to judge?
Gotta keep those Priestly paychecks and benefits coming.
How about the Pope get rid of him since he;s a homosexual. Maybe the Pope is more concerned about us having a wall, or global warming.
Hes off talking about climate change.
First of all, he is not "Father" anyone. He's not a priest if he's a practicing homo.
Secondly, he didn't "marry" anyone. Priests can't marry. And no man can marry another man. They can co-fornicate and co-sodomize, but they can't marry.
The Vatican supports homosexuality.
Well past house cleaning time for the RCC.
Something is eternally wrong with this pair.
If married gay priests can remnain priests, why can’t heterosexual priests remain priests?
Not that they should.
He’s Father until the Pope or whatever local officials he answers to changes that. The Roman church owns him until it does something about it. Silence is consent.
He should be removed as a priest immediately.
His actions defy the Bible’s teachings.
I’ll bet parishioners still fill the pews...There’s the real problem...
