The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland fired campus minister Rev. Keith Kozak after discovering via Facebook that he attended his gay friends’ wedding.
“The very next day, I received a letter that said I was terminated.”
Kozak, who is gay himself, said he has “always felt supported” by the church, “until now.”
Kozak’s firing runs contrary to the example set by Pope Francis, who has called for an end to discrimination against LGBTQ people. Sign the Moroski petition and know that Pope Francis will bring a halt to all the unjust firings.
The church desperately needs a system for dialogue among the faithful. Today there is no avenue for even talking about things that affect all. Bishops are locked in the ideology and cannot get out, even to support Jesus’ commandants.
All issues deserve honest and open discussion. Only then are we capable of exercising our God-given right of freedom of choice. Who would deny what God has given mankind as a unique and empowering gift?
It is high time the bishops get behind the hard working teachers in our schools instead of jamming down on the the old worn our culture war agenda that have failed to produce anything of value. Catechists have born the brunt of the evangelization effort for years, bishops want to undo their work in seconds. Sadly most bishops today are not theologians or catechists.
