Fr. Dariusz Oko: Homosexual clerics won't fight to defend the vulnerable

Homosexualist bishops like Bp. John Stowe of Lexington, Kentucky are refusing to defend innocent students at Covington Catholic High School or innocent unborn babies in New York because their emasculated formation is contrary to Christ the Good Shepherd, Who lays down His life for His sheep.

Even after mainstream media had fully vetted the innocence of Covington Catholic students, Stowe wouldn't come to their defense in his statement that he released on Tuesday. The students got a similar treatment from their own Bp. Joseph Foys of Covington, Kentucky. Foys wouldn't retract his public condemnation of them even after the full story came out.

Catholic bishops of New York state, similarly, released a milquetoast statement on Tuesday that meekly expressed regret over the signing into law of the radical pro-abortion legislation, the Reproductive Health Act, by New York's self-identified Catholic governor, Andrew Cuomo. The original legislation had been introduced back in 2007 with little effort put forth by the bishops to thwart its recent passage.

Concerned Catholics are wondering why bishops continually fail so miserably to stand up and defend what is true and good. The answer revolves around the type of men they are or were formed to be. Many studies estimate the Catholic Church in America is led by a high number of homosexual men. It's led by even more who have received a gay-friendly formation in the seminary.

The failure to defend the vulnerable and the weak is a trait of such men, according to Fr. Dariusz Oko, author of the 2012 blockbuster exposé With the Pope Against the Homoheresy. In a 2016 interview with Church Militant, Oko explained this crucial defect in such Church leaders.

Men with homosexual tendencies reject the "warrior mentality" necessary in the Christian life, said Oko.

"[T]hey will not emulate our Lord as the warrior, as the counter symbol to the prevailing evil," he remarked. "They will try to orient the Church to being emotional, to having a dialogue with everybody, turning the Church into a 'safe space.' They don't like battle or confrontation."
