Two homosexual students at the University have launched a campaign to oust the priest because he counseled that those with same-sex attraction should remain celibate.
“We propose the ways of the kingdom of God in terms that the world can understand and examine, in terms they may freely accept or reject,” said Cardinal Wuerl, according to CNA. He added: “Even when they said to him you need to be current, you need to be contemporary, you need to be politically correct, you need to be with the times, Jesus did not say, ‘Oh, then, I will change my teaching.’”
“Thank you for standing up for the freedom to speak our faith and thank you for standing up for your chaplain,” Cardinal Wuerl reportedly concluded. “God bless him and all of you.”
