[A gay-friendly (and outright “gay”) missionary of mercy]

About thirteen years ago, Steve Brady of Roman Catholic Faithful issued a call to several Catholic bishops to block the priestly ordination of one Patrick Baikauskas to the priesthood and to have him expelled from the Order of Preachers (Dominicans). He was divorced from his wife and was a gay activist, who lived with his accomplice in mortal sodomite sin until the latter died of AIDS. Brady’s plea fell on deaf ears. Baikauskas was ordained and eventually became pastor of St Thomas Aquinas Church in West Lafayette IN. During his time there, the parish participated in a local “gay pride” event, showing that Baikauskas was still quite the gay-rights advocate. Judie Brown of American Life League took the Archdiocese of Lafayette to task for this.
Yes, this gay-activist priest is a “missionary of mercy”. One wonders what business he has being a priest, let alone someone invested with special faculties. God help the poor soul afflicted with same-sex attraction who seeks him out for guidance in living chastely according to the Church’s teachings. This begs the question “how are these priests vetted”? Why was he selected despite his own obvious struggles with intrinsically disordered inclinations? Or..was he selected because of them?? What abut the other “missionaries”? I’m not suggesting that they’re all to be avoided, but we see obvious causes for concern here.
