After Criticizing Islam and Sodom Courageous Austrian Pastor Fully Back on Duty

Edit: we’d noted earlier that a priest in the Austrian Diocese of Graz had been disciplined for doing his job. This interesting story comes in connection with another howling indecency by the Austrian Bishops in their approval for civil unions. Of course, there are at least three sources indicating that even the Pope himself may have approved of such a thing.

(Graz) The regular pastor, the Reverend Charles Tropper, who was dismissed for criticizing aberrosexuality and Islam from the Austrian Diocese Graz-Seckau (Styria) can now fully exercise again the priestly ministry in his parish of Veit am Vogau. At the end of August this year, however, he will be retired. This was announced this Thursday by Vicar General Henry Schnuderl. The pastor was, according to Schnuderl, guilty of making "terrible simplifications” and having an "uncultured style". Pastor Tropper had been secluded during the Holy Week and the Easter season under a sermon ban. Tropper was accentuated his position in a letter to the parish about Gomorrism and Islam. A homo-association made charges against the priest and had been ruled by the prosecution, after a preliminary inquiry, to be without substance. The Diocese, however, was called to intervene “in the necessity, of boundaries”. Link to katholisches...

Thanks for the update. Maybe at least it won't end so badly for Pastor Topper.

The Diocese of Graz must take lessons from that Rorate Caeli website. They employ the very same modus operandi when it comes to censoring words of truth. No matter how charitably they are stated.

Keep on proclaiming the truth, Father Tropper!

Anonymous 13 April 3:30 P.M., Sometimes I feel like a heretic if I have a criticism of Rorate. But I find that I am not alone. Your statement is true and well said. I still visit occasionally but am sometimes annoyed. You or I or others should surely not continue to be surprised therefore not annoyed. Somehow though, I time and again am. We do not have to be subject to their dictatorship so I don't go there often.
