Posted on 08/02/2018 4:36:54 PM PDT by marshmallow
TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras, July 26, 2018, (LifeSiteNews) One of the Vatican's most influential cardinals, already suspected of looking the other way while gay relationships were conducted in his personal residence, has now admonished fifty seminarians for speaking out against their seminary's rampant homosexual subculture.
Instead of praising the seminarians, tweeted Ed Pentin, the National Catholic Register (NCR) who broke the story, Cardinal Óscar Rodríguez Maradiaga accused them of being gossipers who wish to portray their fellow seminarians in a bad light.
Maradiaga is the leader of Pope Francis Council of Nine cardinals and was entrusted with the Popes Vatican reforms.
The concerned seminarians said in their joint letter that they could not hide any more the magnitude of this problem in the seminary, according to NCR, which obtained a copy of the letter.
We are living and experiencing a time of tension in our house because of gravely immoral situations, above all of an active homosexuality inside the seminary that has been a taboo all this time, continued the young mens letter, and by covering up and penalizing this situation the problem has grown in strength, turning into, as one priest said not so long ago, an epidemic in the seminary.
Their letter seeks systemic changes for the seminary, including demanding that the schools formators follow magisterial teaching on homosexuality and that their seminarians who engage in gay romantic or sexual behavior be ousted.
When their letter was read out to bishops, the cardinal immediately started attacking the letters authors, he added.

The Catholic Church is doomed unless they purge the homosexuals from the ranks of the clergy and the leadership.
sounds pretty corrupted
Weren’t they (the seminarians) asked to do this by Pope Benedict XVI?
Homosexuality destroys everything it touches.
What an idiotic Cardinal. He should be fired.
Pope Benedict tried to purge the homosexuals from the Church. Instead, it was he who had to leave. The Gay Mafia is powerful and pervasive.
