Peter Liuzzi, director of Gay and Lesbian Ministries for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, and Fr.
Liuzzi called for a new and different gay revolution. He stressed his belief that homosexuality is morally neutral and that gays have a right to participate in the Church community without having to hide their homosexuality.At that gathering Fr.Liuzzi pretended to bless those in attendance with puppy urine.
AOC's purposeConsidering that the authors of this document are all militant gay activists, each agitating for Church acceptance of homosexual acts (sins) and the gay lifestyle (near occasions of sin), none accepting the Church's authoritative teaching on human sexuality, Catholics are more than justified to voice their suspicions about the true purpose behind the AOC document.
The stated purpose of the document is to provide support for parents of homosexuals.But there is ample evidence to suggest that the true purpose is to move one step closer to the Church's acceptance of homosexuality and to advance the gay-rights movement in civil society by offering the Catholic bishops' acceptance of homosexuality.One clear motivation for the document is to type homophobes (those who object to homosexuality and the gay lifestyle) as those who are engaging in neurotic behavior rather than the homosexuals.

The Archdiocesan director of Pastoral Ministry to the Lesbian and Gay Community, Fr. Peter Liuzzi, wrote: "I want to recommend Rick Flynn’s video, A Journey for Understanding….[it] suggests that there is a new attitude coming to birth in various quarters of the Church.
Father Peter Liuzzi, director of Los Angeles’ Ministry with Gay and Lesbian Catholics, described celibacy as an ideal. "We esteem it because it was the way Jesus interpreted his gift of sexuality. No human being was ever more sexual, more intimate, or more generative than he. Father Liuzzi criticized those, however, who insist that gays must be held to that standard of perfection. [The Wanderer, September 18, 1997]
c. The Los Angeles’ Ministry with Gay and Lesbian Catholics, directed by Father Peter Liuzzi, was created to welcome and to respond to homosexual Catholics with "a calm and prayerful concern. However, Father Liuzzi has permitted the presentation of non-traditional Scripture interpretations as part of his ministry. For example, at a Gay and Lesbian Outreach meeting [St.

Not surprisingly, Deacon Stoltz is a big fan of both Cardinal Mahony and Father Peter Liuzzi, O. Carm. (former director of Mahony's "ministry to Lesbian and Gay Catholics" and currently pastor of St. Agnes Church and School in Phoenix).
Father Peter Liuzzi.
Sister Judy Murphy, the then in-house attorney for the Archdiocese, wrote about Liuzzi in an e-mail sent to one of the attorneys of the Archdiocese's legal firm. She doesn't mention Liuzzi by name, but it is clear from the context that she is referring to Liuzzi.
There is no suggestion here that Liuzzi had been accused of any improprieties with minors. The concern, which is raised in another e-mail, is that Liuzzi, simultaneous to the announcement of the removal of Father Savino, was being transferred to the faculty of Crespi following the dismantling of his Gay and Lesbian Ministry due to the loss of funding.
There was clearly some apprehension on the part of some of the Archdiocesan managers over the appointment of Liuzzi, a known homosexual, to an all boys' school, given the torrent of revelations involving homosexual priests abusing young men and boys.
The Vicar for Clergy, Monisgnor Cox, was strongly opposed to the removal of Liuzzi from the Crespi faculty. In another e-mail, one of the Archdiocesan attorneys told Sister Judy:
Msgr. Cox is opposed to the removal of Fr. Liuzzi who teaches a one hour course once a week at Crespi reasoning that if he was good enough to be on the Cardinal's staff, he is OK to teach at Crespi H.S. (Disagree.) All homosexuals are not pedophiles. (Agree.) If the Cardinal was to tell the Carmelites to remove Fr. Liuzzi, that is his decision. There has never been a claim about Fr. Liuzzi. I am not sure how long Liuzzi was on staff at Crespi, but he wasn't there too long. I think he took one of those "sabbaticals."
And now where is he?
L.A. Auxiliary Bishop Gabino Zavala and Father Peter Liuzzi both served on the National Assn. of Catholic Diocesan Lesbian and Gay Ministries.
