Bishops’ Aide Daniel Avila Resigns Over Column Suggesting Homosexuality Caused by Biological Interference of Satan

AvilaYesterday, I posted about a column in the Boston Pilot by Massachusetts attorney Daniel Avila, who also serves as Policy Advisor for Marriage and Family to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, which suggested that homosexuality is caused by Satan interfering with 'typical' biological development.

Avila has now resigned, the AP reports:

"A spokeswoman for the Roman Catholic bishops said Friday that Daniel Avila offered to step down and his resignation was accepted Friday…Avila apologized for any pain the column caused. He said his views did not represent the position of the bishops' conference."

    I predicted that his head would roll for leaking that INTERNAL memo and embarrassing the Bishops Conference by exposing their true beliefs to the public.

    And that’s exactly what happened.

    So he will move from his visibly funded position within the Catholic Church to a secretly funded position in NOM. The same boss just a different account.

  3. Tyron says

    Seems as if the Catholic church has a lot more explaining to do than how the devil created homosexuality. Seems as if the devil might have had a pretty big hand in creating some of those boy molester’s who have been running the Catholic church for so many years.
