The “Yes to You” video by Father Pontifex aimed at welcoming gays is getting press from some interesting venues: Queety and Huffington Post’s Gay Voices. Not only do they quote the rapping Catholic priest, they posted his video.
In a video that allegedly presents the Church as “a refuge of love for all of humanity,” Father Claude Dusty Burns, a.k.a. “Pontifex,” lays down some not-so-fresh verses about how homosexuality is a choice. Though the Church might say no to gay marriage, it says “yes to you."
A spoken-word piece, “Yes to You” is produced by Courage, a Catholic ministry …
And Huffington Post:
"Although the Church says 'No' to gay marriage, it still says, 'Yes' to you."
That's the overriding message of "Yes to You," a bizarre, spoken-word video that's currently making the rounds in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) blogosphere. Reportedly produced by Courage, a Pennsylvania-based Catholic ministry targeting individuals "dealing with same-sex attractions" and helping them "live chaste lives in accordance with the Roman Catholic Church's teaching on homosexuality," the "Yes to You" clip features a priest identified as Father Claude Dusty Burns, a.k.a. "Pontifex," who raps…”
Spirit Juice Studios collaborated with Fr. Pontifex to film the controversial topic of homosexuality and same-sex marriage.
Both Queerty and Huff Po credit Courage as the producer. Whether or not Courage was involved in the production, it is providential that these pro-homosexual websites link to this Catholic ministry for people with same-sex attraction.
Spread the good word: God loves you.
