And it involves a Filipina!
|F(f)ather Kevin Lee|
A priest who yesterday ‘outed’ himself as a married man said he wanted to highlight the need to change celibacy laws and the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church with regard to the treatment of sex offenders. [He admitted to living with a woman, who I am pretty sure is not married according to the laws of the Church, while still remaining in his active priestly ministry, came out to admit his sinful and scandalous relationship because he wants to "highlight" the need for the Church to stop Her "hypocrisy. Ain't he the clean one, eh?]
Speaking with Neil Mitchell, Father Kevin Lee from the Padre Pio Parish in Glenmore Park, Sydney said he had already been excommunicated from the Church. [Wow! That was fast! But.....I didn't know that being a priest and getting married will get you automatic excommunication. If he wants to, well, he can do it himself, but his act did not and will not merit an excommunication. Wait! Is this drumming up the media drama so the anti-Catholic MSM will go to the rescue of the bullied little priest who just wants to tell the whole world how he loves his little wife and how the big bad bully called the Vatican is getting in their "happily-ever-after" life?]
”I think it was basically expected that they'd be shocked, but I didn't expect to be turfed out as quickly as I was,” Father Lee told Neil Mitchell.
”I think they try to put a very bad spin on it that I'm the bad person because I've breached their trust in terms of being married secretly." [It's not bad?!]
Father Lee said he had received support from fellow priests who were themselves in relationships, but didn’t have the courage to ‘out’ themselves.
Father Lee said he had worked as a chaplain for fifteen with the New South Wales police and was appalled by the ‘stonewalling’ committed by the Catholic Church during investigations into sex offences committed by priests. [Did he go to the police?]
"When a priest has committed some serious sex offence, he's more likely to be re-accommodated somewhere else where he's not known and given back his ministry and his faculties.” [Dan Brown! Some material here!]
Father Lee said his to-be wife was unaware he was a priest when they first met, and their friendship blossomed to love. [*belch*]
"You don't choose to fall in love. You meet somebody and the relationship blossoms, and it became a situation where I felt I should solemnise this union to make it official,” he said.
Father Lee said he was fearful that his Filipino wife would be ostracised within her strongly Catholic community for marrying a priest.
What this priest is basically saying is this:
I can't follow the rules, so let us just change the rule!
And it happens all the time.
In the Liturgy, a Do-as-You-Please-Mass, dancing, clapping, creativities, no vestments...
In the Teachings of the Church, Catholics co-habitating, contracepting, actively homosexual sex life, philandering, stealing from government coffers, so-called Catholic businessmen who don't pay their workers their just wages....
It goes on and on.
Once you make up your own rules, you become your own Master and Lord.
No wonder that is the reason why the first Commandment IS the First Commandment.
That is what IDOLATRY means folks!
