Three months ago, I wrote of St. Matthew's Church in Baltimore Maryland. It is a Catholic parish that has been taken over by gay activists, with the cooperation of its pastor, Father Joseph Muth. More troubling is the apparent approval of Auxiliary Bishop Denis Madden and the willful silence of Archbishop William Lori. The Baltimore chancery has been contacted about this matter numerous times; none of us who did so received the courtesy of a reply.
Defend Life is a Catholic pro-life organization that is based in Baltimore. They publish a bi-monthly newsletter. The Jan-Feb issue came out a few days ago and has an expose on the moral rot that has infested St. Matthew's. It also details the depths of depravity to which Bishop Madden seems to have sunk in his support of the gay infestation at that church. The article is here and you can read the first few lines to get an impression as to how low the bishop has allowed himself to fall.
The bishop is reported to have congratulated two women for engaging in acts that will most likely condemn them to hell for all eternity. The author of the article made plain throughout the article that they attempted to contact the chancery for clarification on this matter. As before, the chancery has not given the author any reply. I agree that "silence implies consent". At any rate, the bishop did exactly the opposite of what a real successor of the apostles would do, e.g., explain to the women that they are endangering their souls, that they should break off the sinful relationship and get to confession immediately. If these women die unrepentant, Bishop Madden will have these souls to his charge.
I am again urging that we all contact the Baltimore chancery and politely but firmly demand that they take corrective measures lest the goings-on at this parish facilitate eternal damnation for hundreds of poor souls.
