Pastor Pugliese preaching this important message.
PLEASE WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO – A creative speech by the Rev. Phil Snider, at the the Springfield, Missouri City Council Meeting on August 13, 2012 to discuss adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of categories of persons protected from discrimination.
Preached at Grace Church Austin
This debate took place at Valley Presbyterian Church in Phoenix Arizona on Saturday, October 17, 2015.
Dr. Robert A. J. Gagnon’s main fields of interest are Pauline theology and sexual issues in the Bible. He is an ordained elder at a Presbyterian Church (USA) in Pittsburgh. He is an author and provides a large amount of free material on the web dealing with Scripture and homosexuality. Visit his website to view all the resources on this topic:

On Tuesday, a Butte bankruptcy judge approved a $20 million settlement between the Roman Catholic Diocese of Great Falls-Billings and victims of clergy sexual abuse.
The lawsuit alleged multiple priests and nuns in the diocese sexually abused children for decades. The seven-year-old lawsuit includes 86 plaintiffs.
The diocese filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March 2017, months before jury trials for victims’ civil cases were set to begin.
One year later, the diocese filed to dismiss the bankruptcy.
Bishop Michael Warfel said then that the legal case was draining too many church resources that could go to the victims.
The bishop called the settlement another step in a long process.
“Some people I guess would think it should be celebratory in that it was approved,” he said. “I see it more as a matter of one more step along the process. There’s still some documents that need to be signed because of amendments to what was presented. I see it as there’s a lot of challenges ahead.”
Bishop Warfel added that the monetary part of the settlement should be distributed in about a month. Money for the settlement will come from a series of sources including $4 million from parishes, $8 million from the liability insurer for the diocese, and from sales of diocesan properties.
As part of the settlement, the diocese agreed to post on its website a list of all known past and present clergy members who have been identified by victims, develop a whistleblower policy, and all victims of abuse would be allowed to tell their story.

Catholic Mutual – $8 million
Diocesan Savings in Deposit & Loan Fund – $250,000

GREAT FALLS – The names of 27 Catholic priests and other clergy members accused of sexual abuse decades ago in Montana have been released as part of a settlement agreement with victims. The names became public in federal bankruptcy court documents filed by the Diocese for Great Falls Billings, which agreed to a $20 million settlement with 86 victims in April. Most had not been publicly known. (See the bottom of this story for the names) Victims will decide if they wish to accept the settlement at an August 14 hearing at the bankruptcy court in Butte, according to a recent court filing. As part of the settlement, the diocese agreed to post on its website a list of all known past and present clergy members who have been identified by victims. The list would remain on the site for at least 10 years. The diocese would also develop a phone number and email address designed for anonymous complaints of abuse and a whistleblower policy. All victims of sexual abuse would be released from confidentiality agreements and be allowed to tell their stories. The diocese filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March 2017, months before jury trials for victims’ civil cases were set to begin. Church officials said they declared bankruptcy to develop a means to set up a compensation fund for victims. This March, the diocese filed to dismiss the bankruptcy. Bishop Michael Warfel said then that the legal case was draining too much church resources that could go to victims. The first claims of sexual abuse were filed in 2011, mostly involving parishes in rural Eastern Montana or on reservations. Some claims dated back to the 1950s, and the majority were in the 1970s, according to court documents. The names of the priests are: Cyril Altermatt, Joseph Brown, Patrick Conway, Arnold Custer, Francis Duffy, Augustine J. Ferretti, Charles Gorman, Joseph Heretick, Leo Jansen, Koerner (first name unknown), Patrick Kendrigan, Kevin Malee, Bernard McMeel, Thomas McTague, Clarence Talks Different, Krik Morgan, James Reilly, Father O’Reilly (first name unknown), Joseph Papes, Sylvester Penna, Brother Rene (first name unknown), James Reynolds, Edmund Robinson, John Ryan, Patrick Savage, Frederick Simoneau, Andrew Zerek.
