Watch Father John Hollowell Teach Catholic Students About Disgusting Gay Sex For 2 Hours

Father John Hollowell, the chaplain of Indianapolis’ Cardinal Ritter High School, is less concerned with his pupils scoring high on standardized tests than he is making sure they never have same-sex relations. Because education is nothing if kids don’t learn what is and is not an abomination before god.

After all, “the Bible is completely useless,” Hollowell told the class on Thursday, if homosexuality is “okay in god’s eyes. … Old and New Testament in multiple places say homosexual acts are an ‘abomination,’ a grave offense against God. The Catholic Church upholds that teaching as well. So you have two options: God is cool with homosexuality, homosexual acts, I should say … or what the Bible and the Church say about it is correct? Okay? There’s no middle ground on that issue.” If that weren’t excruciating enough, realize that kids had to sit through two hours of Hollowell’s support of conversion therapy and denunciation of gay marriage and adoption.

“I believe in there, yes, that basically to murder someone is an abomination,” Hollowell tells his students at one point. Also an abomination? Having gay sex. You know, apples to apples.

At least Hollowell isn’t condemning same-sex attraction! “Simply having the attraction, in the mind of the church — a homosexual attraction is not a sin in the mind of the church, because it’s something you don’t control,” he tells a female student in response to her question. “You in the moment … have no control over what I’m attracted to. … Heterosexual or homosexual, there’s a thin line between having an attraction and turning it into lust. The young freshman boy running around out there, he doesn’t know the difference most likely.”

Now I’m not going to make some baseless accusation and accuse Hollowell of some gross misdeed like molesting children, or even having consensual adult sex with another man. But would it surprise me if we found out Hollowell violated the very scripture he claims to uphold? Not for a second.

If you have a lazy evening ahead of you, load up your Roku and put these clips on the big screen. If you’re interested in hosting a Hollowell viewing party at your home, let us know; I’ll see if I can get the Queerty higher-ups to foot the bill (for all the booze you’re going to need). And if anyone knows where to get a copy of Hollowell’s awesome looking PowerPoint presentation, do not keep it to yourself!
