GoFundMe Bans Fundraiser For Persecuted Priest Who Burned LGBT Flag, Donations Quadruple

WEB Notes: This article becomes a little strange, but the overall point here from my perspective is to not do business with companies who stand against your ideals. It would have been unthinkable in years past to imagine a company doing something like this, but today, it is common place.

After GoFundMe deleted a fundraising page meant to aid a priest who is in hiding after he stood up for orthodox teaching on homosexuality, donations quickly more than quadrupled at a new fundraising site.

Church Militant initiated a fundraising effort for Fr. Paul Kalchik, the Chicago priest removed from his parish duties by Cardinal Blase Cupich in apparent retaliation for his decision to burn a homosexualist “rainbow pride flag” previously used by the parish to promote the homosexual agenda.

Kalchik went into hiding, out of fear that Cardinal Cupich would take him away by force, and requires financial aid for his legal defense.

GoFundMe rejected the effort, explaining that its terms were violated. GoFundMe has a history of shutting down campaigns that LGBT activists label “homophobic.” While Church Militant speculated that LGBT activism may have resulted in GoFundMe yanking the priests’ campaign, it has stated that the fundraising platform has provided “no response” as to why the campaign was pulled.
