Mind in the gutter...
I have maybe read Andrew Sullivan once or twice when other people have linked to him, but otherwise, I'm not interested. Too political, as Sarah Palin might say. Truth be told, I'm not a big fan of gay bloggers and what they have to say. I know!
Mark Shea posted a reference to the Sullivan story yesterday where Sullivan claims that Pope Benedict is gay, and he bases that assumption upon Benedict's working relationship with Archbishop Ganswein, his secretary/assistant. I couldn't comment on Mark's post because I wouldn't be able to do so with charity. I'm still outraged by Sullivan's claims, especially after a friend sent me an article from Huffington Post covering it. It is wicked. It is evil.
For gay men it is all about sex.
Gay people are notorious for such delusional thinking - how many imagine that anyone who looks at them is 'after them' - interested in going to bed with them - even if they look like Uncle Fester, they can easily flatter themselves thus. Gay men can be like high school girls attracted to every cute boy they see. Because Ganswein is a handsome, virile, youthful looking man, exhibiting sensibilities and attention to an aging Pope, he has become a 'heart throb' for men and women. He is celebrated by the fashion world and gay society - clerical and lay. (You know who you are.) St. Paul wrote about these types when he said, 'their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly delights.'
I suspect Andrew Sullivan is projecting his prejudices and disordered sexual fantasies upon The Holy Father and his assistant. Just exactly the way gay people do in regard to Blessed Cardinal Newman and Ambrose St. John. It is shameful and demonstrates the blindness and distorted obsessions gay people entertain to convince themselves that the disorder is normal and pervasive. It is also evidence that the orientation is intrinsically disordered.
Wicked, wicked games.
Years ago Pope Paul VI was viciously accused of being gay as well. As I've said before, gay people have a way of attributing their particular foibles and follies onto personages they are either profoundly attracted to, or, in order to defame and discredit, those whom they consider their nemesis. These accusations are beneath contempt and are without parallel, the unjust accusations against Pope Paul VI notwithstanding. This type of libel is reminiscent of the wicked men of Sodom who demanded that the two angels staying with Lot be delivered into their hands: "Bring them out to us that we may have our way with them!" [Genesis 19:5]
Curiously, Sullivan is doing exactly what gay people accuse straight people of doing, he is stereotyping and making assumptions based on personal opinion and prejudice. Sounds like hypocrisy to me. It is not unlike the calumny leveled against Pius XII in the play, The Deputy, by Rolf Hochhuth.
Pray for Monsignor Ganswein that he may remain undaunted in his work.
Something tells me the wolves and crazies are beginning to come out during the interregnum. Be on guard and pray.
