8 Ways Fr. Massingale Is Harming Souls With Pro-LGBT Activism

“I know that after my departure savage wolves will come among you, and they will not spare the flock,” wrote Saint Luke. “And from your own group, men will come forward perverting the truth to draw the disciples away after them” (Acts: 20:29-30).

St. Luke predicted what is happening now.

Wolves are perverting the truth, especially on Catholic campuses. Instead of leading souls to practice virtue, dissident voices within the Church lead souls astray. They undermine 2,000 years of Church teaching and tradition, attack human nature, and attempt to normalize the homosexual revolution.

Fr. Bryan N. Massingale, for example, who teaches theology at Fordham University, is subverting moral values. Like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, he causes scandal and confusion with pro-homosexual statements and lectures that contradict Catholic teaching.

The following list of errors will alert the faithful about Fr. Massingale’s pro-LGBT activism, which harms the faith and scatters the flock, and help Catholic students to stay away from him.

1. Fr. Massingale praises anti-Catholic drag queens

In a video message to the homosexual movement, Fr. Massingale spoke approvingly of two debauched drag queens: “Our movement got started because of women of color, trans people of color, people like Marsha Johnson and Sylvia Rivera…”

Marsha P. Johnson (a man) and Sylvia Rivera (a male child prostitute) co-founded the sinful Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries. Johnson was a member of ACT UP, the same pro-homosexual group that invaded Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City, interrupted the Holy Mass, and desecrated the Holy Eucharist.

2. Fr. Massingale suggests that God created sin

During the month of June, when Catholics honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Fr. Massingale highlighted “Pride Month.” In the video address, he blasphemously suggests that God is the author of homosexuality: “We bear God’s image and imprint,” he said. “Let us say happy pride…. We are in the image of God.”

In contrast, the late Pope John Paul II condemned the “pride” parade in Rome as an “offense” against moral values. Speaking against homosexual sin, the Pope stressed that the Church “cannot be silent about the truth, because she would fail in her fidelity to God the Creator and would not help to distinguish good from evil.”

3. Fr. Massingale presents himself as “gay”

Speaking to the Global Network of Rainbow Catholics in Chicago on July 4, 2019, Fr. Massingale stated: “I come to this conversation as a black, gay priest and theologian.”

By presenting himself as a “gay priest,” Fr. Massingale appears to be in conflict with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which declares, "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” According to the Catechism, the inclination to homosexuality is also “objectively disordered.”

4. Fr. Massingale’s blasphemous statement: “We have to rethink God.”

During his talk, the pro-homosexual priest contested Catholic teaching in blasphemous terms: “Yes, we certainly need to rethink our church’s official sexual ethics. But even more, we have to rethink God.” Brushing aside the duty of every faithful Catholic to obey the Magisterium of the Church, Fr. Massingale continued: “We need to create a new church where obedience is not the primary virtue…”

5. Fr. Massingale opposed marriage referendum

In 2006, Fr. Massingale publicly opposed a pro-family defense of marriage referendum designed to protect God’s marriage as the union between one man and one woman in Wisconsin.

Writing for the Catholic Herald of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Fr. Massingale encouraged Catholics to vote against protecting God’s marriage: “…voting ‘no’ on the marriage amendment, in my judgment, is the best way to respect all of our Catholic beliefs and values.”

6. Fr. Massingale promotes moral relativism

At the annual Los Angeles Religious Education Congress (REC), Fr. Massingale gave a lecture claiming that Catholic moral teaching is fundamentally relativistic. “There is a growing recognition of the limits of moral rules, that is, it’s impossible to give a rule that applies always and everywhere and in every situation.”

Catholic teaching is not relative. Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J., writes: “For the Catholic Church, the basic principles of morality are God-given, imbedded in human nature, recognizable by human reason and valid for all men of all times.”

7. Fr. Massingale favors transgenderism for children

Again at the Religious Education Conference (REC), Fr. Massingale participated in a workshop together with a transsexual titled: “Transgender in Our Schools: One Bread, One Body.” The talk claimed that Church doctrine is not defined concerning transgenderism, and made it clear that the only danger of children suffering from gender dysphoria comes when they or their family fail to accept “their reality.”

Fr. Massingale also spoke approvingly of two transgender youth. “Their powerful stories of their struggles over realizing the deep disjunction between their birth bodies and their inner sense of being a man or a woman were heartbreaking and inspiring. Both also movingly related how their ‘transition’ into their transgender bodies was a faith journey as well.”

However, Cardinals and bishops have condemned gender theory as destructive, anti-reason, neo-Marxist, tyrannical, and a form of spiritual terrorism.

8. Fr. Massingale called sinful unions “holy families”

Urging Catholics to “celebrate” the homosexual lifestyle, Fr. Massingale tried to equate the natural family structure with the sinful union of homosexual couples who have the custody of children.

Writing for the U.S. Catholic, the pro-homosexual priest stated: “These families [same-sex couples] are also ‘holy families’—imperfectly yet truly holy—like every other family in a parish.” Fr. Massingale mocked the Church further by calling homosexual couples a “domestic church” and “an incubator of faith and love.”
