Internationally, the best known of these ranks is the bishop who abused his own nephew, Bp. Roger Vangheluwe. Vangheluwe was chairman of the seminary of Brugge (a city better known by its French name "Bruges"). This is an important fact, because Vangheluwe educated a large portion of the people now in power in the Belgian hierarchy. Vangheluwe personally made a man named Johan Bonny professor at that seminary. This man, very close to Vangheluwe, was created bishop of Antwerp by Pope Benedict XVI. Today, Bp. Bonny is best known as being one of the leading pro-gay voices inside our Church. And it is very likely that Bonny will be the next archbishop of Mechelen.
This is because the wages of the priests are paid by the State, not by Catholics themselves.
Organizing the march caused a lot of anger, both inside and outside the Church. I can understand the anger; here in Belgium there are too many Catholic organizations in comparison with the number of Catholics. Each of these organizations needs its share of money and attention — so starting yet another organization was not greeted with enthusiasm by the other Catholic groups. Things got even uglier when we started to challenge the liberal, pro-gay, anti-family consensus inside the Belgian Church. We were accused of being holier than the Pope himself.
Pro Familia wishes to set an example for the rest of Europe and the United States. We've noticed that if you promote Catholic teachings by opposing abortion, you will get ignored no matter how big the demonstration is. The U.S. media even ignored a million-man-strong march in Washington, D.C. This is because of a couple of reasons, but I think mainly because of the fact that the opinions on abortion are settled and the discussion is now 30 years old. People are basically tired of talking about abortion. However, if you promote Catholic teachings by attacking political correctness and pro-gay elements in the Catholic Church, you will get the full attention of the media. It's like sounding the anti-aircraft alarm over a completely filled square.
