Gabriele Kuby is a German sociologist and prolific author, an acquaintance of Pope Benedict XVI who has visited him in his post-retirement monastery and still exchanges regular correspondence with him. She is the foremost European culture warrior protecting the family from the sexual revolution. Pope Benedict XVI has called her “a brave fighter against the ideologies that ultimately result in the destruction of man.” Kuby recently published a book with Michael O’Brien, titled The Abuse of Sexuality in the Catholic Church.
In this episode of The John-Henry Westen Show, Kuby talks about the sexual abuse crisis in the Church, specifically the root cause of the abuse crisis: homosexuality. She cites the work of Fr. D. Paul Sullins, who reviewed numerous reports on abuse. Fr. Sullins’ findings clearly indicate the abuse crisis stems from something much deeper than just clericalism — the most widely accepted cause of the crisis. Sullins notes that nearly 80% the abuse in the Church involves young men at or around the age of puberty. Additionally, the prevalence of homosexuality in the priesthood is eight times higher than it is in society.
Sadly, the topic of homosexuality is largely ignored as the Church addresses the abuse scandal. During the February summit on the abuse scandal, the word “homosexuality” was never mentioned according to Kuby.
Kuby, a convert herself, has a deep love for the Church and challenges the Church to return to the teachings of Christ. “We have to come back to the teaching of Jesus Christ in the Bible. The beautiful teaching of the Christian teaching on sexuality, marriage and family. Make that shine. Inspire people with it,” she explains on the show.
“Every straight or homosexual person, has this deep longing for love in the heart and the Mother Church, the calling of our Mother Church is to show people the way, how that deep longing can be fulfilled. It is not fulfilled by any kind of promiscuity, or any kind of satisfaction of your body because we are one, we are soul and body always together and only if soul and body are in the sexual act, if the soul and body are equally engaged and it is an act of mutual giving and love, only then will that desire be fulfilled, that longing for deep love be fulfilled.” ….
