In a letter to Pope Francis, ousted Polish Priest Krzysztof Charamsa accused the Church of making the lives of millions of gay Catholics globally “a hell”.
Father Krzystof Charamsa was stripped of his post at the Catholic Church in early October on the day he announced he was in a relationship with another man.
He has now decided to hit back in a damning new letter criticising the way the Church treats its GLBT members.
Charamsa made the decision to publish the letter after a “long and tormented period of discernment and prayer”, he had taken the decision to “publicly reject the violence of the Church towards homosexual, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and intersexual people”.
In the letter, released to the BBC, he said he had taken the decision to “publicly reject the violence of the Church towards homosexual, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and intersexual people”.
Charamsa says there are a number of high ranking gay priests in the church and he called on “all gay cardinals, gay bishops and gay priests to have the courage to abandon this insensitive, unfair and brutal Church.”
The letter has yet to receive a response from Pope Francis.
