This is a report on the infiltration of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Francisco by homosexual activists. We are happy to note that since the creation of this website, some things seem to have changed for the better. While we note these changes at the bottom of this page, we retain the information indicated by the three bullet points immediately below as an accurate description of the situation at the time of publication.

We begin with three pieces of information:

• Every year, Catholic Charities of San Francisco holds a special collection in all the parishes of the Archdiocese of San Francisco. A portion of that money, collected at Masses, will go to supplying staff to "the gayest adoption agency in the country", an organization that is committed by contract to "Increasing the number of children adopted by lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender (LGBT) adults."

• The University of San Francisco has, as it's Executive Director of Campus Ministry, a Priest who has written: "I believe in other words, that the gospel must always be inculturated into every culture, and this must include gay culture." and "I will not feign academic objectivity: if such a thing really exists. I firmly believe in a new approach and a new vision in this area of ministry. In this I do have an 'agenda.'"

• Most Holy Redeemer parish has been "inclusive and welcoming" to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community for over 25 years. It is now the only Catholic parish in history that has photographs of parish hall events posted on a website that requires an obscenity disclaimer.

How did this happen? The answer is: there are institutions in our Archdiocese that have been penetrated and corrupted by homosexual activists. This website will document that statement.

The activists know one another, they work with one another, they work in one or more of these institutions, and their aim is the furthering of the gay agenda, not fidelity to the teaching of the Church. The evidence we offer will convince any reasonable person.

Our Archdiocesan hierarchy has been passive if not complicit in the face of this corruption. The corruption has proceeded on three fronts, mostly through three institutions:

Catholic Charities CYO is their activist home. Through Catholic Charities of San Francisco the activists have sought to normalize homosexual relationships, and to place them on a level of equality with natural families. They have been successful in this.

The (Jesuit) University of San Francisco is their intellectual home. USF has attempted to offer philosophical, ethical, and theological justification for the normalization of homosexual relationships, both in the Church and in society.

Most Holy Redeemer Parish is their spiritual home. Most Holy Redeemer is existentially a "gay" parish, not a Catholic parish. Christianity will be accepted in so far as it conforms to the real religion at MHR, which is gay spirituality, and no farther. The section on Most Holy Redeemer will show what that means in practice.

Please follow any of the links above or at left to learn more about each of these institutions.

Here is a flowchart that illustrates some of these persons, institutions, & relationships. We will document the extent of the corruption, and identify the institutions and individuals who make it happen.

New section: Following the victory of Proposition 8, we think it would be a good time to document how the homosexual activists within the Archdiocese tried to sabotage the Church's efforts to defend marriage. Go to our new page "The Activists and Same-Sex Marriage."


Catholic Charities Update: On June 30, 2009, the Catholic Charities/Family Builders by Adoption partnership was dissolved. So our statement above that that monies collected in all San Francisco parishes no longer goes to the self-described "gayest adoption agency in the country" is no longer (we hope) true. Reporter Valerie Schmalz covered the dissolution in the October 12, 2008 issue of "Our Sunday Visitor" , and the October 17, 2008 issue of "Catholic San Francisco" (PDF 5MB, page 12) confirmed Ms. Schmalz's story.

The CCCYO/FBA partnership was one of the motivations for the construction of this website, and we are happy about any part we may have played in the ending of this disastrous affair. (A quick rundown of the development of the partnership can be found here).

The Catholic San Fancisco story claimed that the partnership was only intended to last for three years--a claim that we have debunked here.

Despite the dissolution, Catholic Charities' website continued to link to Family Builders as a recommended adoption agency right through August 11, 2009--when FBA was caught adverstising for adoptive "parents" on the s/m webpage of the Bay Area Reporter and the "porn" page of the San Francisco Bay Times. After that was revealed, Catholic Charities pulled the link. Let's hope that's the last we hear of the regrettable partnership between Catholic Charities and Family Builders by Adoption.

Most Holy Redeemer Update: We are happy to report that on August 8, 2012, following the appointment of Fr. Brian Costello as the new pastor of Most Holy Redeemer, and the newly announced appointment of His Excellency Salvatore Cordileone as the new Archbishop of San Francisco, the Archdiocese notified Most Holy Redeemer Church that the parish is no longer allowed to host events featuring drag queens. This commonsense measure has been a long time coming. To see what what the allowing of "drag queens" in a Catholic Church actually meant, go here. We pray for Fr. Costello, whose love for the parishioners of MHR is obvious, as he continues his ministry, and for Archbishop Cordileone as he shepherds the Archdiocese.

The (Jesuit) University of San Francisco Update: There is no good news from the University of San Francisco. While Fr. Donal Godfrey, SJ, quoted in the fourth paragraph of this page, no longer serves as the Executive Director of Campus Ministry, he now serves as the Associate Director for Faculty/Staff Spirituality. The openly homosexual Reverend Vincent Pizzuto (who counts himself as one who has moved "beyond the confines of the Roman Church" and was ordained into a church not in communion with Rome) is now USF's Chair of the Department of Theology and Religious Studies and the Director of USF's Catholic Studies and Social Thought minor.
