Bromberger lead a workshop on Saturday, May 20, at the “Ignatian Spiritual Life Center” at St.
Agnes parish in Haight-Ashbury, called “LGBTQ gifts for the Institutional Church.” The workshop’s purpose was to “focus on what the Church can learn from the LGBTQ community so as to revitalize her own faith,” according to a St. “As a way to better articulate how queer experience can be appropriated in faith, we will use contemplative prayer, especially centering prayer, as a way to build that bridge as well as offering LGBTQ people a model to understand the spiritual implications of the queer experience.” According to Joseph Sciambra, who witnessed the “workshop,” Bromberger claimed that homosexuality is a God-given identity.
“Overall the tone is celebratory and sex-positive, and the viewer receives the impression that most of the men are happy, even relieved, to talk about what their di**s mean personally to them.” Other quotations from the review, which include discussions of homosexual child molestation, masturbation, and other perversities, are too obscene to include in this article, but readers may find the full text here. Gaybar,” of the book, “Intimacy Idiot,” Bromberger begins, “We know we are in for a hilarious time when in his Online Dating Profile that introduces Isaac Oliver's new book, Oliver writes that his typical Friday night is ‘wine in mouth, d**k in hand, hope in heart.’ Intimacy Idiot is a debut collection on the trials and tribulations of a gay 20-something single man in New York City, ranging from Grindr hookups to amusing but disastrous dates.” Bromberger has written many other approving reviews of homosexuality-promoting movies for the newspaper like “Smoldering Passions,” about the movie “Departure,” which concerns a teenage boy sexually attracted to another teenage boy, and “College Lovers,” about the movie “Akron,” which is about two male college students who enter into a homosexual relationship.
In his review of the German film “Jonathan,” about a dying homosexual visited by his former partner, Bromberger approvingly tells the reader that “Some of the gut-wrenching scenes of the dying process will challenge the faint of heart, though a hospital deathbed sex episode is simultaneously romantic and harrowing.” Bromberger has been writing for the since at least 2014.
The spokesman told Life Site that Bromberger was now being counseled regarding his duties as a deacon and that all “public” activities undertaken by the deacon now must be approved by the archdiocese beforehand. Now, of course, one would wish that he had a vehicle more suitable – he does not write as a deacon – however, this is just a distinction, one wishes he had a vehicle that was more suitable for him to earn his living from, but that is not the case.
However, he added that Bromberger’s writings for the are not considered “public” because he does not write as a deacon, and therefore were not being reviewed by the archdiocese. have very recently formulated a review plan, which provides direction and guidance for Deacon Bromberger for any future public speaking or workshops . And so I am responding really more directly about any public role that he might have or might be taking and that was my comment from the review plan that I gave you a moment ago.” However, when pressed regarding the salacious and immoral nature of Bromberger’s writings for the newspaper, Brown began to speak in his own name rather than on behalf of the archdiocese.
The review includes an image of a naked man standing with his crotch area blurred.
“One can't help noticing whether consciously (to show their erection) or not, almost all the men were touching their co**s as they philosophized about them, perhaps to combat nervousness or promote confidence,” writes Bromberger.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: “Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that ‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.’ They are contrary to the natural law. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity.Under no circumstances can they be approved.” Brown told Life Site that the archdiocese was aware, and had been aware for some time before being contacted by Life Site, that Bromberger had been engaging in public activities that were a cause for concern. That’s part of the review process as well,” Brown said, without elaborating.However, he offered no explanation as to why the archdiocese was still extending faculties to Bromberger. “I hope it’s coming through that the archbishop is quite involved in these matters,” Brown added.Its record, whether it be the Crusades, the Inquisition, burning witches, denigrating women, maligning gay and lesbian people, is abysmal,” he told worshippers in one homily.Although members of the faithful, as well as this news agency, have repeatedly contacted the archdiocese about Deacon Brian Bromberger’s misconduct, he continues to be listed (p.
