The following is my response to George Lujack who made comments on my article I wrote a couple of years ago on Celibacy. That is an important teaching today as many have sinned greatly, over 55,000 people a day in the United States have been diagnosed with a Sexually Transmitted Disease. I'm supportive of the example of faithful priests who honor the Lord in their service to Him.
Matthew 19:12 Jesus says, "Some are incapable of marriage because they were born so; some, because they were made so by others; some, because they have renounced marriage for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Whoever can accept this ought to accept it."
Not exactly. Some are eunuchs and were born that way, some were abused physically and became eunuchs, and some could not find a non-divorced single woman to marry, so for the sake of the kingdom of heaven, they remained as a eunuch, celibate, because if they married a divorced woman they would be adulterers. Adulterers will not inherit the kingdom of heaven.
(Well George, my bible is clear that my quotation is more accurate! Your quote is not biblical? The eunuchs were made that way because the kings would not trust their wives to be watched by men who were capable of uprooting these women. Eunuchs did not enlist for the job, it was forced upon them. )
Notice the hatred displayed here by George Lujack, an anti-Catholic who spills this kind of hate on Facebook:
"There can be no doubt that homosexuality is CONDONED among the Catholic clergy. They certainly DO NOT condemn it, except in the pulpit, but then they must believe that this "perverted sin," along with pedophilia, is something that they as Catholic priests are entitled to."
Truth is not hate.
(There is a difference from what the Catholic Church teach vs what some members do. Hell is paved with clergy not because of their practicing the Catholic Faith? Rather, because some rebelled and rejected their Catholic Faith. Truth is not hate, but to purposely lie as to say that the Catholic Church "condoned" sin among the Catholic clergy is false. )
George 1 TIMOTHY 4:1-5 (NKJV) [WITH INTERPRETATION]:
Now the Spirit spoke expressly [THE SPIRIT OF GOD WHO SPOKE CLEARLY TO THE APOSTLE PAUL], that in the latter times [THE END TIMES] some shall depart from the faith [CATHOLICS, HER DAUGHTER PROTESTANT CHURCHES AND OTHER FORMER FAITH-BASED CHRISTIANS], giving heed to seducing spirits [OBEYING / WORSHIPING APPARITIONS OF MARY – WHICH ARE DEMONIC SPIRITS IN DISGUISE], and doctrines of devils [MAN-MADE CATHOLIC / PROTESTANT DOCTRINES]; Speaking lies in hypocrisy [COVERING UP SEX SCANDALS WITHIN THE CATHOLIC CHURCHES WHILE HYPOCRITICALLY PREACHING AGAINST SEXUAL SINS]; having their conscience seared with a hot iron [COMMITTING ABOMINABLE SEXUAL ABUSE ACTS OF HOMOSEXUAL PEDOPHILIA WITHOUT ANY GUILTY CONSCIENCE AT ALL]; Forbidding to marry [CATHOLIC PRIESTS AND NUNS ARE FORBIDDEN TO MARRY], and commanding to abstain from meats [MEATLESS FRIDAYS AND LENT DOCTRINES], which God has created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth
(George, the Apostle Paul converted to the Catholic Faith, I do agree that some have departed from the Catholic Faith who have apostatized forming heresies of all kinds to include the one your in George. When a Catholic priest commits a serious sin, it is page 1 and I would say rightfully so, but when a non-Catholic does it, it is on page 15 if printed and reported at all. As a Catholic George, it is wrong no matter who does it. I love the way you twist scripture to make your points. The Catholic Church regards Marriage as a Sacrament, celibacy has a solid place in Christianity. There are Catholic priests who are married, converts from other denominations, various rites in the Catholic Church have married clergy. Of course, Catholics do not worship Mary, and 1 Timothy 4 does not speak against Lent and Friday fish days. There are heresies who reject meat all together, certain kinds of meats like pork as well.)
It is interesting that during the midst of the "priest scandal" the media, the Church, the law, went back 50 years wanting to uncover every rock and the most they found was about 3%.
George and company will condemn the 97% who were innocent.
Again, you got things ass backwards, Catholic Defender (appropriately named). Cathodes have been in the cover up business since the beginning, when they covered up their falsehoods under the guise of the Scriptures. You would defend the MUCH HIGHER THAN 3% and cease all investigations into the NUMEROUS CONFIRMED pedophilia scandals that have rocked the Catholic Church. So you are the Catholic Defender of pedophile priests, of whom you marginalize by your language "priest scandal" as if there was no scandal and act like it was only 3% of the priests. You've done this before with the figures for the massacres via inquisition and barbarism of the Catholic Church during the Dark Middle ages.
(See George, your true colors are showing here, the Catholic Church gave us the scriptures, you have corrupted yourselves with false interpretations, that is apparent in these examples presented in blue here. One Catholic priest committing an act so atrocious as pedophilia is one to many. One who has done such will meet a terrible end (Matthew 18:1-10), so will those who lie (Proverbs 6:16-19). 99% of this abuse is from within families, the vast majority. I do not attack family, but those who do such things must be punished. It is wrong no matter who does it. I get the 3% figure from the facts uncovered in a 50 year investigation that has a collective gathering from law enforcement, the media, and the Church. It matters not that you can't accept the real truth, what else is new?
You miss the real facts on the Inquisition as you have blinded eyes, certainly there were wrongs, Catholics have done wrong as we have always had our Judas. But Jesus makes an important promise to His Church that the gates of Hell will not prevail, that Jesus will always be present there, and the Church is given the Holy Spirit.)
George The Catholic Church will soon come to an end. The Catholic Church is the gates of hell, and you defend those gates. Such a Cathode dunce.

Oh and yes, I got another witness for you Catholic Defender:
Milo Yiannoloulos. I'm sure you got yourself a blog out there attacking the credibility of Milo. After all, you are the Catholic Defender! Hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil against the Catholic Church!
(The Catholic Church will never end, it will be transformed when Jesus does return. I'd rather be a "dunce" for the Lord than one who attacks Christ Church! I like Ephesians 5:11 that states that we are to have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. Instead of standing with us in opposing those who have an aggressive progressive agenda, you seek to divide people based on personal bias. Yes, I recognize that your in a Cult, George, but I do not go out there attacking you specific as I stand for your right as an American to do as you will. Politically, we are really on the same side, but I will not condemn you for your errors, that is God's judgement and His alone.)
