Archbishop Broglio, Military Services USA on Proposed Repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Comments

'For years, those struggling with alcoholism have benefitted from Alcoholics Anonymous.  Like homosexuality, there is rarely a cure.  There is a control through a process, which is guarded by absolute secrecy.  It is an equivalent to "Don't ask don't tell".  The process has worked well for some time without the charge that it is discriminatory.'

    This change in policy reveals more about the US military than it does about homosexuality. That is what the archbishop should find troubling, and not the state of morale of the troopers. Fact is, the Pentagon has long been deeply involved in fostering all sorts of immorality at least as grave as this new policy.

    I think you people really have no clue what being gay is like or about at all.

    There is a cure for homosexuality. It is called exorcism, or rather, certain non-solemn exorcism prayers (which do not require approval of a bishop) and which have as their object the expelling of obsessing spirits from the particular soul. This grave act of depravity is the result of obsessive evil spirits. I will leave to you to read about how people become obsessed (which is not the same as possession, which according to exorcists is actually much rarer than the more common cases of moderate to severe obsession). Until the Church recognizes and responds to this spiritual crisis among the laity, both the Church and the laity will continue to suffer. There is no human solution to a spiritual crisis, as St. Paul warned when he said our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against demons.
