Catholic Pastor In Southern Maryland Publicly Condones Homosexual Acts

We rightly warn of wolves in sheep's clothing.  True enough, but there is a greater danger - wolves in shepherd's clothing!  Can this describe Father Peter Daly, pastor of St. John Vianney Parish in Prince Frederick Maryland?  His own words have made plain that his influence is a danger to those placed in his care.

The Not-At-All Catholic Reporter published an article of Father's, entitled, "Catholic Church Should Support Boy Scouts' Decision on Sexual Orientation".  The first part of the article is a lame attempt to cajole us into thinking that the Boy Scouts will remain the healthy, morally-straight organization that it once was.  After all that meandering, Father lets loose with can only be called moral poison.  I will quote the pertinent segment below, leaving out only the paragraph breaks.

"Three times in my 27 years as a priest, I have had to sit across the room from young men who tried to commit suicide because they were gay. Three times, I have heard their anguish as they told me that their church regarded them as "intrinsically disordered" and their love as seriously immoral. Three times I have had to hear them say that part of the reason for their despair was our preaching.  Conservative Catholic theologians would no doubt demand that I condemn all homosexual acts as immoral. They would want pastors to insist that all gay boys must learn to carry their unique cross of perpetual life-long chastity, a burden we would never dream of imposing on heterosexuals. They would want me to say that all gay acts are evil and all inclinations are intrinsically disordered.  Well, let them say it. Let them say it to those boys who tried to commit suicide. Let them say it to the frightened little Scout who is still figuring out himself."

Let's unpack this mess, shall we?  We'll do this, "bullet style".
  • Three times, I have heard their anguish as they told me that their church regarded them as "intrinsically disordered" and their love as seriously immoral.  Father, did you remind them that the Church doesn't consider them - as persons - disordered, but rather their homosexual inclinations?  Moreover, their "love" is not true love at all.  If you have confirmed any of them in their confusion, you have done them gross disservice and may well be confirming on the path to eternal perdition.
  • Conservative Catholic theologians would no doubt demand that I condemn all homosexual acts as immoral.  Well, not so much "conservative" as much as "Faithful to the moral teachings handed down by Jesus Christ Himself through the Church's teaching magisterium".  It's a mouthful, but we get the point.  And yes, Father!  It IS the teaching of Holy Mother Church that all homosexual ACTS are immoral.  Notice that it's the ACTS, not PERSONS, lest there be silly attempts to conflate the two.  You will not be permitted to get away with it!  At any rate, the "theologians" don't demand that you condemn these acts.  That charge is laid upon you by virtue of the Sacrament of Holy Orders.  You are called to proclaim the Gospel, to call sinners to repentance and to administer the Sacraments.  Without all these elements, the unfortunate homosexual will find him/herself bereft of the graces needed to conquer these disordered inclinations.  Father, knock off this politically correct schtick and administer some real help and compassion to these souls in your care.
  • They would want me to say that all gay acts are evil and all inclinations are intrinsically disordered.  Well, let them say it. Let them say it to those boys who tried to commit suicide. Let them say it to the frightened little Scout who is still figuring out himself.  There are four sentences here.  In the first sentence, let's substitute for the word "they" and rightly put in its place Jesus Christ Himself, for that is His teaching as revealed through His church.  So in the first sentence, Father properly states what is his solemn duty as an ordained Catholic priest.  In the following sentences, Father declares that he is abdicating his duty to proclaim the truth and to do all he can to save the immortal souls of those afflicted with homosexual inclinations.  God help him if he doesn't reconsider the error of his current disposition for in addition to his own salvation, he imperils that of many others in his path.
The Cardinal Newman Society points out that this is not the first time that Father has coddled those who engage in self-destructive behaviors.  This past year he gave scandal to gay students at Catholic University of America, instead of true compassion.

Of course all this begs the question, "Should Father Daly continue in his post while he is still of a mindset to lead confused souls to destruction?"   We should at least contact the Archdiocese of Washington and petition for his removal, if only for his own salvation.  The chancery has demonstrated its ability to move with extreme alacrity when it so desires; witness the speed with which they threw Father Marcel Guarnizo under the bus.  Granted, Father Guarnizo's case was a bit different.  Father Guarnizo acted in complete obedience to the Magisterium; he just happened to ruffle the feathers of the DC-area gay community and the latter simply got noisy.  Father Daly, on the other hand, is thumbing his nose at the Magisterium.  Will the DC chancery find the spinal fortitude and moral clarity to deal with him appropriately?

  1. Oh, these are the days when evil is called good and good evil; unfortunately sometimes even in the Church.
    May God have mercy upon Fr. Daly and bring him to repentance.

  2. Contact the Archdiocese of DC and Donald Wuerl, you must be joking. They laugh at real Catholics who write them, but they won't be laughing on Judgment Day.
    God bless, yours in Their Hearts,Kenneth M. Fisher, Founding Director, Concerned Roman Catholics of America,

    Oh, by the way, isn't Wuerl on Pope Francis's Committee that is supposed to aid him in cleaning up the Church? Isn't that the same as bringing in the fox to protect the chickens?

    1. We still must try, if only to serve notice on them that we know and that we are spreading the word far and wide. It wouldn't hurt, though, to mention that their response may well have an impact on the amount of future donations. It's called the language of "ka-ching $$$".

  3. Remember Fr. Guarnizo?????
    "But Father Marcel Guarnizo reportedly covered the bowl and said: ‘I cannot give you Communion because you live with a woman, and in the eyes of the Church, that is a sin.’"

  4. In some ways, it is better if these clerics and religious are out in the open. I need to start keeping a list of all priests, bishops and church bureaucrats who come out with this. If connections could be made between these folks, we can get a better understanding of the network.

  5. The Catholic Church already does support the Boy Scout's decision.

    1. Not all pastors do. Some of them have come right out and said that they are ending their parishes' affiliations with the Scouts. But too many of the hierarchy are at best mealy-mouthed about the matter.

  6. Anon, if you're looking for a list, a place to start would be right above the finance council for the ADW: "College of Deans - Rev. Msgr. Robert Amey; Rev. Msgr. Mark E. Brennan; Rev. Msgr. Karl A. Chimiak; Rev. Rory T. Conley; Rev. Peter J. Daly; Rev. John Dillon; Rev. William E. Foley; Rev. Msgr. W. Ronald Jameson; Rev. Raymond H. Moore; Rev. Msgr. Charles Pope; Rev. Walter J. Tappe; Rev. Msgr. Eddie L. Tolentino; Rev. Msgr. Peter J. Vaghi; Rev. Msgr. James D. Watkins;"

    1. We don't want to paint with a brush that's too broad. While Father Daly is in that list, I can vouch for the integrity of at least three of the others. However, if I did so here, that might mean the "kiss of death" for them as the chancery probably takes a dim view of my writings as it is.

    2. Anon @8.50:

      I have a hard time believing that some folks on that list are part of the part of the network of cultural Marxists. What does the College of Dean's do by the way?

    3. "Let them say it to the frightened little Scout who is still figuring out himself."
      This sentence is chilling. How old is this "little" Scout? What is he "frightened" of? In their email lead to July 3 article LifeSite News: “We have been publishing much evidence over the years that there is indeed a link between homosexuality and pedophilia, as today's terrible story reveals once again.”
      http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/model-gay-adoptive-fathers-sexually-abused-6-year-old-for-years-offered-him
      Priests get to counsel children based on the fact that parents believe the priest is a “holy man” who will guide their child according to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.
      Almost all Catholics, as these comments attest, “I can vouch for the integrity of at least three of the others” and “I have a hard time believing that some folks on that list are part of the part of the network of cultural Marxists” believe THEIR priest is not a homosexual or a pedophile, does not believe homosexual activity is okay and would never pimp a child/teen or his family to the chancery “always our children” homosexual network to further his career or because he is vulnerable/ashamed due to his own sexual sins and/or drug/alcohol addictions--and yet the article cited by all that a homo network exists at the Vatican states that homosexuals have destroyed entire congregations and dioceses in the U.S. and that our priesthood is “more and more a gay profession”:
      “If homolobbyists are allowed to act freely, in a dozen or so years they may destroy entire congregations and dioceses – like in the USA, where the priestly vocation is more and more now called a gay profession (particularly with reference to American Jesuits), or like in Ireland, where men are hesitant about joining the emptying seminaries for fear of being suspected of suffering from some disorders.
      In the USA, the priestly vocation is more and more often now called gay profession.
      In Ireland, men are hesitant about joining the emptying seminaries for fear of being suspected of suffering from some disorders.”
      http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2013/02/fr-dariusz-okos-major-article-with-pope.html
      [The repetition is in the translation.] The entire article is mainly a complaint about one priest: “In Poland, their best known representative is F. Jacek Prusak, SJ, who had been trained by American Jesuits, after all. For eight years now he has taken on the role of a spokesman of the homolobby in the Church, fighting uncompromisingly to defend its interests.”
      The cardinal emeritus of D.C., McCarrick, is a known priest harasser and abuser and advocate of homosexual marriage. St. Matthews Cathedral (Cardinal Wuerl's cathedral) run by the “rector”, Ron Jameson (another advocate of marriage equality) is a hive of homosexuality--on both sides of the pews.

    4. It is hard to believe that any priest in the D.C. diocese, let alone a dean, isn’t aware of the homosexual activity (and has been aware and either a participant or silently complicit since his days in seminary). When children’s lives and souls are at stake it is hard to understand how these priests remain silent (or indeed recommend the scout or overnight trip/activity) unless they believe like Fr. Daly that a little homosexual activity never hurt anyone and not only does it help some “frightened little Scout” “figure himself out” it actually PREVENTS the “frightened little Scout” from committing suicide--and the only suicide to worry about is that of one’s mortal body (i.e. no eternal life).
      We all know the drill. We know about Sandusky and how the abusers bribe/pressure children and “scholarship students” w/money, gifts, ski trips and camp trips.
      http://kiradavis.net/exclusive-georgetown-allegedly-suspends-student-for-refusing-lgbt-training/
      And yet so many Catholics still make excuses and vouch for their own priest’s integrity. Priests advocating pedophilia and homosexual acts, like Daly, are called liberals or progressives or cultural Marxists or mistaken or anything but what they are: sexual perverts and their advocates/enablers who are destroying us, our families, our Church, and our country. Our silence and our going along makes us enablers and complicit also. In the (old) mass there is a prayer: “May my heart not incline to evil words, to make excuses for sins.”
      A majority of Catholics now believe homosexual marriage is okay. Open homosexuality is in the military and the boy scouts. The U.S. Supreme Court, in a decision written by a Catholic, just declared the defense of marriage act unconstitutional. As Ann Landers would say, wake up and smell the coffee. It is YOUR priest. It is EVERY priest. If he belongs and is silent, he is guilty (and because of him, priests who do speak out, like Fr. Haly, are ruined). http://whereisfrhaley.blogspot.com/
      All recommend the book “Good Bye Good Men”, but no-one believes the message: If the good men are turned away, those ordained are BAD!

      “From 1984 to 1990, he headed an apostolic visitation into the presence of homosexuality in American seminaries.”

      Meanwhile Marshall was protecting notorious pedophiles:

      Wuerl was his sectretary:
      In 1982, he was made executive secretary to Bishop John Marshall for a papally mandated study of U.S. seminaries.

      “In the last visitations, Bishop Wuerl and other church sources said, the teaching of celibacy was an issue, but homosexuality was not.”

      Fool me once shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. Satan was a liar from the beginning and he is still a liar. “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44

"We don't want to paint with a brush that's too broad" really ?, than why allow this garbage list to be posted ? if this is a moderated blog ,than moderate . allowing all these scurrilous and slanderous links and comments shows a serious lack of prudence and discretion .stewart m. schwartz ( i'm not a chickenshit who posts anonymously)

  7. Thank you Anonymous for giving all these links: It will take a long time to go through all off them. IMHO we are going through a chastisement. In Romans, being given up to perversion was a punishment of ingratitude and complaisance. And I know that perverts can burrow anywhere - even very "conservative" people have been outed. I knew things, were bad. After a while it was obvious that the problem is not just "Amchurch". IMO If things are as bad as you and others say, all we can do is to do penance that God will send his grace to animate the church again. Mean while I can direct my donations to where the Gospel is really preached.
