Cardinal Timothy Dolan Endorses Web Campaign Calling On Homosexuals To Live Loveless Lives Of Chastity

Via press release:

A new website aimed at offering an array of resources for persons involved in the pastoral care of men and women who experience same-sex attractions (SSA) has been launched by Courage & EnCourage International, the Catholic Church’s officially recognized ministry in the field.

Truth & Love offers a wide range of content on the subject of homosexuality, sexual identity and related topics such as pornography. Visitors to the website will find resources on these topics from the perspectives of official Church teaching, theology, philosophy, anthropology, pastoral care, health, psychology and personal testimonies of persons who experience SSA.

“I am pleased to introduce to you and recommend [Truth & Love] as a valuable tool for anyone who wishes to understand the host of theological and pastoral issues related to the Catholic Church’s teaching on homosexuality and those who experience same-sex attraction,” writes Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York and head of Courage International’s episcopal board.

From the site’s about page:

For decades, the Catholic Church has been extending its outreach to men and women who experience same-sex attraction, helping them to live chaste lives and to embrace their identity as sons and daughters of God. Years of experience have revealed the need for comprehensive formation for those directly involved in this ministry; in addition, there are those seeking to deepen their understanding of this complex issue which is a lived reality for so many people.

Truth & Love is a response to these needs. Here, you will find a wide array of resources, ranging from theological perspectives on human sexuality and chastity, to health and wellbeing, to providing authentic pastoral care for SSA individuals. Whether you are a priest, religious, a healthcare worker, a layperson, and whether you or a loved one experiences same-sex attractions, we believe you will find here a wealth of information to guide you.

RELATED: Last year Dolan spent $2 million lobbying against proposed changes to New York state law that would extend the statute of limitations for the victims of pedophile priests to pursue civil lawsuits. In 2013 it was revealed that Dolan sought and received Vatican permission to move $57 million in Catholic Church money into a cemetery fund so that it couldn’t be used to pay out molestation settlements.

            No thanks I prefer my all connections to be consensual and legal

          • Joseph Miceli

            Whoa there Buddy! Where the fuck did I endorse nonconsensual and illegal sex. All I wrote (jokingly) is that the guy in the picture looked hot. I think you read a little too much into that. And…just for your edification, I’ll have you know that at 52, my cut off for most men is around 35. If someone is younger than that I usually try to find them a nice boyfriend because I’m a yenta.

          • TrueWords

            Power down BLUE RANGER…its not that serious also yes he is attractive and at 49 years old my cut off is 47 the age of my husband…

          • Joseph Miceli

            Grumble grumble…..okay. (sniff) I’m going to go make fun of Ann Coulter until I feel better.

          • David Walker

            At 71, the cut-off age pretty much takes care of itself.

          • FAEN

            Yenta? I could use one.

      I was wondering if this was a new campaign to recruit priests and nuns.
      Sorry Timmy, we’ve been there, done that.
      Two millennia of hate and lies were more than enough.

    • TrueWords

      You can’t put a price on how much damage the Catholic Church’s sex abuse scandals have done to the victims. But you sure as hell can count how much the Church has paid out as a result of those lawsuits. And that’s what Jack and Diane Ruhl of the National Catholic Reporter did.

      According to their research, since 1950, that amount comes out to $3,994,797,060.10. Nearly $4 billion. And that’s an underestimate since we still don’t know how much was spent for therapy for the victims, help for the offenders, and the creation of “safe environment” programs.

      • Mike Knife

        They are still not paying all of the victims and there are still priest raping and molesting children today. The Catholic pedophile cult needs to be stopped before they rape another child.

        • Daniel Lewis Frommherz

          Best idea that I can conceive all priests need to be shorn of their nuts

        • Daniel Lewis Frommherz

          Not yet but it is on my mind.

    • Mike Knife

      The Catholic pedophile cult needs to be stopped. Right now they want Mexicans to come into the US to pay money to the Catholic church and be new members here. They are also Catholic pedophiles as well.

    • Librarykid

      “Truth and Love” What does the church know about either of them except to spread lies and block The Creator’s love? Hellbound.

    • Paula Key

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    I endorse any web campaign calling for Cardinal Timothy Dolan to fuck off.

    • Joseph Miceli

      What exactly does that entail, anyway? Ever thought about it? I’m picturing a very large dildo set in the bed of a railroad car with Dolan forced to sit on it as the train pulls out of the station and heads towards the mountains.

    NO.
    There is nothing for any of us to be gained by living lonely, pathetic lives devoid of romantic and sexual fulfillment.

    Fucking Catholic psychological abuse.

    We’ve seen what “abstinence” means when it comes to Catholic clergy.
    Shove your iron-age beliefs up your ass. At least then they’ll bring some benefit to humanity by loosening you up a bit and maybe a few less choir boys will be molested, which could mean fewer people like Milo Yiannopolopolodopolous.

    • Treant

      Yeah, but just do what the church does. Lie about it and have sex and relationships anyway.

      It’s not like either of you can get pregnant and prove yourselves liars.

    Oh, not quite. You have no power here. Begone before a house drops on you, too.

    • Ron Robertson

      I’ve noticed that, too. So, they’re thinking about gay sex a LOT.

    • Librarykid

      It is a way of uniting the masses against a formerly powerless and greatly misunderstood minority, useful in religion and politics. That is why Harvey Milk’s theme was “Come out, come out, wherever you are.”

      The well believed lie used to be that homosexuals were coming after your children, but now people know that it is more likely to be a priest or right wing politician.

    Timothy Dolan is dumber than a box of rocks and certainly no moral authority. Most of the Catholic Church’s priesthood is gay and they have tried this very same stupid Catholic doctrine with disastrous results – makes them do crazy stuff. Over 4,000 priest ended up diddling over 30,000 boys and cost them billions of dollars in fines. It is a wonder they haven’t been shut down for racketeering a child molestation ring.

  • margaretpoa

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      I can’t see why any gay would be a person of faith. God, any and all iterations of him, has always been a raging homophobe, undeserving of our respect or love. Even if he existed, I would still not worship or respect him on the grounds he’s a fucking asshole.

      • teedofftaxpayer

        Some people feel closer to a “supreme being” and God represent that I guess. I personally don’t believe in the Bible or any Church. To me they’re nothing but a bunch of con-men stealing money from hard working people.

    So is this what you tell Catholic priests who are actively involved in homosexual ‘activities’ with same-sex or opposite sex partners? Well, it ain’t a workin’ Bub. I’ll bet there are more then 50% of priests actively engaging in homosexual behavior in this country alone. I know 2 priests personally who live the ‘Gay’ life when they are away from their congregation so don’t preach about something you have NO control over…no one is listening to you!

        I suspect that’s “Tall man” from a game of “Where is Thumbkin,” since it’s a video (without sound) of Mr. Rogers surrounded by children, and wasn’t known for flipping people off.

    Celibacy is bad for your health. In the early 1970s a friend of mine was trying to remain celibate–Evangelical christian from TN or KY living in LaCrosse, WI. One day at work he developed a severe pain like an appendicitis attack. To Emergency. Nothing wrong. A few days later same thing. Finally the Emergency room doctor asked him is he was having sex, and he said “no.” Doc said “clean your pipes out. Masturbate.” That is what is causing this pain. No more trips to Emergency.

    Does it tell priests how to keep their fingers out of altar boys’ butts?

  • Queequeg

    It would be far better to rape 14 yeqr old girls. Praise the Lord!

  • SFBruce

    How can he keep spewing this sanctimonious crap? Even most American Catholics can’t be buying this, since 63% of them know what a joke (or much worse) celibacy has been for the priesthood. Here’s another interesting fact about American Catholics: two thirds of them support same sex marriage.

    • Etranger

      Those are the most dangerous Catholics. They make it hard for the rest of us to live by supporting a hateful institution. I hate to say it, but at the end of the day, they are hypocritical or idiotic. Gay-friendly Catholic is kind of an oxymoron in my book.

      • Tor

        I have a couple of gay friends who practice Catholicism. The Catholic church has many mysteries, I have been told, but the greatest mystery is how any self-respecting gay person could maintain membership in such a club.
        We live in SF, and, I assume, Most Holy Redeemer might still be a bit friendly.

  • Ben in Oakland

    Or Timmy, go fuck yourself with a gold crozier.

    And do something about the kiddy diddling priests, or the approximately 50% of priests who are not celibate.

    On second thought, go fuck yourself ith a gold crozier.

    • mary barnes

      Gentleman Ben! I am surprised at you.
      But it does feel good to vent. I guess.

      • Ben in Oakland

        My apologies.

        One of the reasons I post at JMG is that I can occasionally say what I really feel, rather than be the gentleman I always strive to be. Catholics and baptists on the whole tend to get me very pissed off, especially when they go out of their way to be who they are.

        We’ll just pretend you never saw what I wrote. 😘😜🤔🤥😬

        • Gianni

          I’m sure a great many of us here can agree with you and feel the same way about our venting.

            Thanks.

          No apology needed. I probably out cuss you when I am home moaping about. Heard only by my cats.

    Dolan Endorses Web Campaign Calling On Homosexuals To Live Loveless Lives Of Chastity and Gluttony

  • Steverino

    Do something about priests struggling with pre-adolescent sexual attraction and get back to me.

  • JDS

    Old Mary should just shut up and clean her own house.

  • Etranger

    I am not sure what the big deal really is. Truth and Love is not for me, but I left the Catholic Church in part because it made no sense that gay people cannot find love and have sex. If a gay person wants to be Catholic, they should not be surprised that the Cardinal endorses this group and that they are required to live by those rules. The Church has never and will never change on this topic. It is based on dogma (role of sex in marriage and procreation) and dogma never changes.

    • Gianni

      True. It really is all about the rules and they must be followed. The C. Church has changed it’s ‘position’ on gay people over the years, but a gay person can only be accepted completely into the ‘love, compassion, and care’ of the church IF, big IF, they do what they are told about living sexless lives. You have your feelings and desires and the church won’t fight you for those (they have learned that those won’t change), but SEXLESS LIVES are an absolute requirement. How could any gay person accept that bullshit?

      • Etranger

        You pose a great question.

      • Librarykid

        The Church seeks to control completely every aspect of every member’s life. Few people pay attention; look at all of the married couples using contraception. People have grown out of the ignorance and fear that once gave the Church power. It had its run and it brought misery to billions. Everyone except the Church and its most brainwashed recognize this.

    • Librarykid

      Truth and Love remind me of the old joke about Pravda and Isvestia, two newspapers in the USSR. Pravda translates into “truth” and Isvestia translates into “news.” The joke was that there was no pravda in Isvestia and no isvestia in Pravda. In this case there is neither truth nor love in Truth and Love.

  • Dolan is such an azzole. Poor Pope Frankie.

    • Etranger

      Yeah, but to be fair, Pope Frankie believes the same thing on this (well, pretty much all) issue.

      • Must agree. But he has been the best Pope in my lifetime except John XXIII. I have always wondered if they assassinated him.

        • Tor

          No one talks about John Paul I anymore. I think JPII took his name to erase his (short) memory.

    • Mike

      In terms of dogma and the opposition to human dignity, Frankie the infallible is no different from the worst, most evil scumbag priest, except Frankie does it while being extra nice. He’s the anti-Trump in that way. Trump, likewise, is exactly like every other Republican, even “the good ones,” except Trump does it while being extra despicable, the feral pig that he is.

      • I think he is different. That is probably because I am Catholic and any mercy from any Pope is so rare. I loved John 23 and he was different.

        • Mike

          John 23 was the real thing, a reformer. Frankie is awfully nice, but not much for the reforming. He is a defender of the status quo, like Ratzo before him.

          Being nice is better than not, but Frankie’s reputation for being an agent of change is totally undeserved.

          • We must agree to disagree. Frankie is not what I hoped he would be. But he is no Ratzinger or John Paul.

  • HoratioCaine

    “Visitors to the website will find resources on these topics from the perspectives of official Church teaching, theology, philosophy, anthropology, pastoral care, health, psychology…” — I don’t even need to go to the website to know what an incredibly huge load of gay hating bullsh*t it is. theology, church teaching, philosophy, are all fake meaningless subjects. they have absolutely no value in regards to ANYTHING. the psychology angle is obvious b.s. that doesn’t follow any actual science on the matter. but what really pisses me off is the use of ANTHROPOLOGY.

    any anthropologist worth their salt can show you how the religions came to be the gay bashing organizations they are today. they have swathed their little hate group in religious gibberish and fake science. it is all nothing but a huge load of bullsh*t from a group that can’t ever be wrong about anything even when it has absolutely been factually proven they are.

    the catholic church used the accusation of homosexuality to get people they couldn’t nail with witchery or heresy. and it is the last one they are still allowed to publicaly persecute.

    a ‘valuable tool’??? oh ha ha ha..listen timmy… the ONLY ‘valuable’ tool you care about is the one btw the altar bois legs…..

  • Gianni

    That bullshit is so easy for you to spout isn’t it, Cardinal Dolan? You well know that all that loving pastoral care wouldn’t be needed it the C. Church and others would stop condemning gay people and just let them know that they are as human and valuable as any others and have all the same rights to live their own lives as who they are. Plus, that the church is there to help any who have personal difficulties to understand that who they are and their same-sex attractions are not something shameful and to not waste their lives fighting against their feelings and be the best according to their individual natures. Of course, an easier way is to just shut up and mind your own fucking church business.

  • Friday’s_cat

    Homos don’t ‘begat’ in sufficient numbers to keep our priests satisfied. How can we attract pedos if there isn’t enough little Catholics for them to molest? /snark off

  • Andymac3

    Jesus Christ! The number of priests that I have met on gay sites has become a bit of a joke to some close friends. The number of gay men in the priesthood is hardly a well kept secret, and if they are struggling to follow their own made up rules, they don’t get to moralize about anyone else. They are losing their grip on society because their fake morality is so unnatural, unlike being gay, which is so natural, even the Zimbabwean lions are doing it.

  • That’s rich coming from Dolan who is gay and sexually active.

    • GanymedeRenard

      Eww!

    • Tor

      He is not gay. He may have “SSA” and sex with other males, but gay is an honorific reserved for people who love and accept themselves as they are.

      • madknits

        The word I use for people like that is “homosexual”.
        But never “gay” or even “queer”.

    • LMAO.

  • Thank you for the info. I sent this excerpt of my memoir to “Truth and Love”

    /3/ Objective Disorder

    IN OCTOBER 1986, WHEN the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith of the Roman Catholic Church, under the direction of Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, officially defined my being a sissy as an objective disorder, certain aspects of my childhood and youth finally began to make sense. The schoolyard bullies had been replaced by men in red hats.

    The new bullies now had serious, grown-up words to more effectively humiliate me and hurt me and to separate my kind from others like the apocalyptic lambs and goats.

    The Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons that had called us disordered and self-indulgent came, not with a single blow to the cheek, but with a barrage of condemnation and accusations. The

    Catholic Church was now calling my innate aversion to team sports and hetero-sex a “more or less strong tendency toward moral evil.” It accused organizations like Dignity of promoting deceitful propaganda and strongly suggested that increased
    violence toward gay persons was almost to be expected in view of new civil rights legislation protecting gays from discrimination.

    As an adult sitting around a folding-table altar with other members of my gay Catholic Dignity group, I was deeply hurt. I had, after all, just begun to reconcile my long-denied sexuality and my incompatible religion. Our group had begun what we
    thought was a productive dialogue with the Archbishop and had recently been invited to hold our Sunday liturgy in one of the classrooms of a local Catholic parish. It had begun to feel like the Church was finally listening to our stories, to our lived experience, and to our desire to be acknowledged.

    Soon after the letter from the Vatican, the Archbishop asked our Dignity group for a statement outlining our position on homosexual expression. We consulted the writings of prominent theologians whose scholarly works examined scripture and
    tradition, natural law and science, and morality and justice. They concluded that our sexual expression was not an impediment to our sitting with integrity and in good conscience, alongside our heterosexual brothers and sisters at the Lord’s table.

    Our response to the Archbishop was not, however, entirely orthodox, and so was flatly rejected. In view of the new directive from the Vatican, we were in danger of grave moral error, if not considered outright heretics. We were forced to leave the premises of the Catholic Church and, for a while, took refuge in a welcoming local Episcopal community.

    Now, was I to leave behind my new-found self-esteem and integrity and be forced into spiritual exile? The pronouncement from the Vatican and the dismissal by the Archbishop were staggering psychological blows that made me see more
    clearly what an abusive relationship the Catholic Church had with its gay and lesbian members. The church’s intransigent hierarchy was the abuser and I had turned my cheek too many times.

    My church, I was beginning to realize, would never recognize my true identity as morally neutral or legitimate or allow me to be a fully integrated, whole person while calling myself Catholic….

  • andrew

    If you know any homosexual men who are attempting to live “loveless lives of chastity” without the love and companionship of adult males, feel sorry for them, but don’t let them alone with your sons. It is exactly the life many gay Catholic Priests have tried to live with the resulting abuse of minors.

  • Mike Knife

    We have all seen what happens when the Catholic Church stops straight priest from getting married, they become pedophiles. No self respecting LGBTQ person wants to live a loveless Life like that.

  • No More GOP.

    Hey, Tim? Fuck off.

  • Dan Patterson

    Gee, we hadn’t heard from Dame Timothy Lady Dolan in some time. I hope it’s even longer before we hear again.

    This has been touted as the “loving, compassionate” response for some time. As the Catholic (former) co-host on KC’s Sunday morning put it: ‘they can always live together as friends.’ The age of the scam is surprising considering the consistently unenthusiasic response.

    The only thing I want to read about Dolan is his obituary.

    Oh stop. Just stop. Get a life, pack it into your Land Rover, and drive it off a cliff.
