Monsignor Asks for Dismissal


For John, BLUF"Don't poke the bear."  Nothing to see here; just move along.



From Reuters, via The New York Times, "Priest Dismissed by Vatican After Saying He Is Gay".

Dismissed as in dismissed from his day job, at the Vatican (Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith).  He also lost his other job, as a teacher of theology at pontifical universities in Rome.

Saying he was gay in public, with his partner by his side.  And gave an interview to the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

I would say the Monsignor Krzysztof Charamsa was looking for a fight.  And a different Catholic Church.

I think he was dismissed for homosexual activity not for being gay. And for calling for changes in Church teaching.

Dude, as we say in America "Do you job, or resign". Its not like we changed rules on you and your now mad bro, refusing to teach classes. You knew what the job was,and you did it, plus it's a freaky cushy job at the Vatican. It's not like your assign to a parish in Lowell,dealing with bickering parish ladies and men.

At least he wasn't put in jail or mocked as evil & stupid on social media.
