The entire 48-minute homily of a Birkirkara priest who took the opportunity during the Santa Liena festa to rail against progressives and gay people has been revealed, and it’s quite the ride.
Provost Paul Vella talks about everything from what God wants us to do, to the suffering of Saint Helena at the hands of the Romans… to how gay people want to kill straight people because straight people are not all about that “progressive agenda” life.
“And what can we say about laws that go against the holiness of the marriage between a man and a woman? Whoever doesn’t want God in their life as a creation made by God, needs to change,” Vella said during the mass.
The over-the-top and strange homily was given to a packed house last Sunday.
Watching the video is a reminder of just how dangerous and influential religions can be when used to sow hatred and division.
The crowd, which is made up of some very tired people, must have had some unholy patience to sit through Vella’s rant, which switches into Latin at points.
It ends with Vella removing his holy beanie before getting a huge round of applause in the church. Among the people clapping were politicians Anglu Farrugia, Jose Herrera and Beppe Fenech Adami.
You can catch the priest begin to enter disturbing territory at around 26:20 mark in the video above.
