Father Robert Nugent, co-founder of New Ways Minstry, passed away January 1st. He and Sister Jeannine Gramick designed New Ways to undermine the Church's teachings regarding homosexual conduct. New Ways has always been headquartered in Prince Georges' County in Maryland.
Father Nugent consulted with the USCCB as the latter wrote the pastoral document "Always Our Children". That explains a lot. Later then-Cardinal Ratzinger barred both Nugent and Gramick from working with gays. Nugent, for the most part, complied while Gramick - to this day - defies that directive.
May God have mercy on his soul.
