Exclusive to RadTrad Thomist: Interview with Fr. Paul Kalchik, Who Burned the Rainbow Flag and is Now In Hiding from the Thugs of Cardinal Cupich. Since Fr. Kalchik is in Hiding, the Interview was Carried Out through a Secured Email Account.
Here are the questions posed to Fr. Kalchik by a lawyer friend of RadTrad Thomist. The questions are in black. The response from Fr. Kalchik, as he wrote it, is in red.
How was the flag used before you arrived at the parish? During Mass? Processions?
How exactly did Cupich contact you to let you know that you are no longer serving in that parish? Written? Verbal?
Have you received any formal documents with regard to your removal, possible laicization, etc?
Were you instructed that you had to go to a psychiatric facility for evaluation? I ask because this is a common way that heterodox bishops get rid of good priests?
Here is Fr. Kalchik's response:
For the full story about what played out this fall, my explanation of the events, as I wrote it, check on the Churchmilitant.com Web site What was bantered about by the press, four fifths of which was just made up. It's not like parishioners went to Walmart and bought a bunch of gay flags and had a bonfire. What was burned was a banner that the parish's bad pastor had commissioned to push the gay thing and he with Cardinal Bernadine had it hung over the Crucifix in the Church's Sanctuary. Question number Two: Cupich does not put anything into writing, he sent two thugs, two priests, to tell me "What not to do"! Again, their is an article on the CM Web site from September 26th 2018. Lastly, since the events played out in September I have hired two Canon Lawyers one American and one Italian, two of the best in the world, and my Case or Lawsuit against Cardinal Cupich and crew, has been filed with the Congregation For the Clerics at the Holy See. one of the highest Tribunals in the Church. But, as Cupich and Pope Francis are joined symbiotically, it sits. And probably will do so for a long time. The real question is "Is there any holiness, left at the Holy See, in the Holy City.
We all need to pray very hard, so that this sham Pope and these sham bishops will be removed. Fr. PJ
