The Indy Star reports:
The priest of a Catholic church in Carmel is under fire for comparing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers to “maggots and parasites” in his weekly message.
In a racist and despicable rant smearing the Black Lives matter movement, the priest, Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church, wrote the following about the Black Lives Matter movement:
The only lives that matter are their own and the only power they seek is their own. They are wolves in wolves clothing, masked thieves and bandits, seeking only to devour the life of the poor and profit from the fear of others. They are maggots and parasites at best, feeding off the isolation of addiction and broken families, and offering to replace any current frustration and anxiety with more misery and greater resentment.
Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and the other nefarious acolytes of their persuasion are not the friends or allies we have been led to believe. They are serpents in the garden, seeking only to uproot and replant a new species of human made in the likeness of man and not in the image of God.
Their poison is more toxic than any pandemic we have endured…
A newly formed group, Carmel Against Racial Injustice, is calling on Bishop Timothy Doherty of the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana to remove Rothrock from leadership and require training and ongoing education for priests and deacons on systemic racism and diversity:
Bottom line: In a despicable and racist rant, Father Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church claims that Black Lives Matter organizers are “maggots and parasites,” arguing that “they are serpents in the garden” and “their poison is more toxic than any pandemic we have endured.”
