Page 5 Mixed emotions for gay Catholics Millions mourn pope who opposed gay rights By EARTHA MELZER Many gay Catholics are reflecting with mixed emotions this week on the life and legacy of Pope John Paul II, uplifted by his dedication to world peace yet disappointed by his staunch opposition to gay rights and same-sex marriage. John Paul II, who died on April 2, led the Catholic Church for 26 years and was the longest reigning pope in recent history. Some observers believe that the pope's strict traditionalist views had to do with his experience leading a church within a communist state — he was a cardinal in communist Poland. As such, he was isolated from the liberalizing forces that were impacting the Catholic Church in other countries. "He has set us back to the early '60s," said Daniel Helminiak, a former Roman Catholic priest and author of "What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality" Helminiak, who is gay, is now a psychology pro fessor at the State University of West Georgia. He left the priesthood after 28 years in part because of the church's teachings on sexuality. John Paul II "institutionalized all of the restrictions very solidly They can be changed but it'll take some doing," Helminiak said. "And eventually they will be changed, I'm absolutely convinced, because they're totally foolish, totally off base. But he's set the process back decades." While the pope spoke out for peace in the Middle East and apologized for some past mistakes of the Catholic Church, he rigidly upheld the church position that sex was for procreation only. The pope called homosexuality "evil.'' and used his position as head of the Catholic Church to oppose the use of condoms as birth control or to curtail the spread of AIDS. Especially the latter years of his papacy. John Paul exerted significant political pressure against gay rights and any form of secular recognition of gay relationships, from domestic partnerships to civil unions and marriage. Please see POPE on Page 7 During his 26-year reign, Pope John Paul II wrote a letter calling homosexuality evil and fought the use of condoms in curtailing the spread of HIV and AIDS.
