At the recent Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco, I had a rather odd occurrence involving my St. Benedict medal bracelet, a completely naked “slave,” and a masked gay demon. It went something like this: at the street intersections of the Fair, foot traffic severally backed-up and things were literally shoulder to shoulder; the experience was totally uncomfortable: with the guys sweating and beginning to smell, and all the vulgar displays of nakedness for nakedness sake - it was slightly overwhelming and incredibly annoying. At one point, someone accidentally shoved me from behind and my arm went out in front of my chest; then, the cold medal beads of my bracelet slightly brushed against the back of a naked teen - who looked to be barely 18: he wore nothing, except a gold-colored chain around his neck; my heart went out to him. The instant the St. Benedict medals touched him, he began to scream wildly. I was taken aback by his reaction; after that, realized it was the bracelet. I stood perfectly straight as he continued to bellow. A few steps ahead, his “master” came bounding towards us. The “master” was a bizarre figure: completely covered from head to toe in various leathers, masks, and scarves; no semblance of the human being lying beneath was visible; it was as if someone had dressed an indiscernible force to give it form and shape. Quickly, the figure put one of its arms and fists in front of my face; I pushed it aside and flashed my St. Benedict bracelet and said - don’t mess with me, I have Jesus here. Then, in a split second, they scurried away and disappeared.

“…in a lot of cases homosexual men don’t have a particularly good relationship with their parents, especially their father. Maybe their fathers had totally rejected them.” ~ Keith Haring*
* Keith Haring died of AIDS in 1990; he was 31 years old.
“Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM)a represent approximately 2% of the United States population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV. In 2010, young gay and bisexual men (aged 13-24 years) accounted for 72% of new HIV infections among all persons aged 13 to 24, and 30% of new infections among all gay and bisexual men.” ~ The CDC
According to the results of a new survey released by the Kaiser Family Foundation, only 25% of gay men admitted that they always use a condom when having sex; 38% said they rarely or never use condoms. Despite this warning from the CDC: “Most gay and bisexual men acquire HIV through anal sex, which is the riskiest type of sex for getting or transmitting HIV,” homosexual men continue to put themselves at risk. For, there is restlessness (always passing into desperation) that pervades all of gay society. It exists from childhood; a longing for the masculine that is forever attached to the lonely and alienated crying boy inside. As a solution, the devil has offered up sodomy – yet, it’s only lasting reward is death. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the only remedy: “They that are well have no need of a physician, but they that are sick…I came not to call the just, but sinners.”

|Kamala Harris at the 2013 San Francisco Gay Pride Parade and the Folsom Float from the same year.|
California Attorney General Kamala Harris could possibly become the New AG of the US. In 2013, she attended the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade, which included a float from the Folsom Street Fair contingent that featured bare-bottomed men in cages. At the Folsom Fair, such sexual acts as masturbation as well as oral and anal sex (performed openly on the street or in various booths) are unremarkable. At this year’s Fair, I noticed such blatant health hazards as ejaculation on the city sidewalks and public displays of urophagia.
I recently returned to the infamous San Francisco Folsom Street Fair after being away from the event for over 15 years; but, this time I was there, not as a reveler, but as a witness to the Divine Mercy of Jesus Christ. Yet, curiously, amid the countless bodies of naked men, leather-clad “daddies,” and furiously masturbating twinks, I felt a strange sensation of Love for these people. Because, I once stood among them. In fact, at one of my last Folsom Street Fairs, I took part in an impromptu porn shoot inside one of the portable toilet stalls. Now, the landscape was just an overcrowded and stinking mass of lost humanity. For, back in my day, the porn stars were the main attractions; primarily, we were the only ones willing to take off all our cloths and have sex on the public street while hordes of onlookers took photos and stood gapping in disbelief. Now, everyone is a porn star: as few of the partakers and spectators arrived fully clothed, and most were willing to participate in the fetish demonstrations and street-side sex acts. And, it’s no longer shocking – BDSM is everywhere: from Rihanna’s single “S&M” and Britney Spears’ bondage inspired Las Vegas show to the global success that is “Fifty Shades of Grey.” It got me thinking: why has so much changed in the 20 – 25 years?
Currently, in the United States, 1 in 4 girls, and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18; some estimates have put this combined figure at 1 in 10 children. Why is this significant? As a former participant in the BDSM world, and as someone who experienced sexual abuse as a boy, I can testify that an inordinate number of bondage devotees are also child sex abuse survivors. This is a sad truth with abuse victims, who have not healed through the saving power of Jesus Christ, like those untreated for mental illness, oftentimes try to desperately repair themselves. In their quest for peace, they frequently seek out persons and situations which mirror the abuse they are trying to escape. This occurs because - by making the painful memory something freely chosen, and by associating with others who do the same thing, the abuse feels less burdensome and shameful; it can even deceptively become a source of pleasure. But, this is all trickery from the devil and his minions; and the germ is laid almost at the moment of the initial trauma; as it enters the unconscious mind during that horrific experience of violation and alienation; it’s a small, but reassuring voice that tells you it’s all okay. Then, as the unhealed person grows up, they do not want to feel alone; like they were the only one. Consequently, another phase of BDSM kicks in and those that have been abused become the abuser; then, you get to turn the whole thing around and experience power by inflicting someone else with the same pain you experienced. But, the elixir is fleeting and the crash unbelievable. In the end, you want to die. As for myself, the last foray into bondage took me to the very gates of hell; and only then did I realize that I had been deceived.

“The LORD hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.” (Is. 19:14)
“My people have consulted their stocks, and their staff hath declared unto them: for the spirit of fornication hath deceived them, and they have committed fornication against their God.” (Hos. 4:12)
“They will not set their thoughts to return to their God: for the spirit of fornication is in the midst of them, and they have not known the Lord.” (Hos. 5: 4)
“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.” (Mat. 12: 43)
“And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.” (Mk 5:2)
In Holy Scripture, there are all types of evil spirits (demons) mentioned: a lying spirit (I Kings 22:22-23); a jealous spirit (Num 5:14); a spirit of divination (Acts 16:16); but, the demon which Our Lord most frequently battled were the unclean spirits (Mat 12:43; Mk 1:23, 26; 3:30; 5:2, 8; 7:25; 8:29; 9:42; 11:24.) The legions of unclean spirits also include those demons particularly interested in sexual perversity among men. One of the early Church Fathers, St. John Cassian, wrote that the spirit of fornication is the “most unclean spirit.” He continued, concerning the struggle between Man and the forces of sexual perversity: “This savage war is longer than the others and of greater duration, and it is completely won by only a few because, although it begins its battles against humankind from the first onset of puberty, it is not terminated until the other vices have been overcome. For twofold is the attack that rises in aggression, armed with a doubled viciousness. And therefore it must be resisted by a doubled force since, inasmuch as it gains in strength by the weakness of both body and soul, it cannot be overcome except by struggling on these two fronts.”
In modern times, the voraciousness of the unclean spirits is concentrated within the phenomena of pornography. On the edge of the industrial age, St. John Bosco already saw the burgeoning influence of mass-produced porn upon the lives of those young men he attempted to morally educate and spiritually direct: “Another weapon the devil employs is immodesty, or more frankly, impurity. My dear children, be on your guard. The devil will tempt you with bad books, bad thoughts, or the foul conversation of a companion. When any such fellow approaches you, say to yourself, this is a minister of Satan. And let these wretches who indulge in foul conversation say to himself, I am a minister of Satan because I help him ruin souls!” Yet, in our own age, Capuchin Father Raniero Cantalamessa, has offered much hope: “…even before Jesus said anything in the synagogue of Capernaum, the unclean spirit felt ejected and obliged to come out in the open. It was Jesus’ ‘holiness’ that seemed ‘untenable’ for the unclean spirit. The Christian who lives in grace and is temple of the Holy Spirit, bears in himself some of this holiness of Christ, and it is precisely the latter which operates, in the environments where he lives, a silent and effective exorcism.”
