The diocese in Lafayette has suspended a priest from public ministry after calling Black Lives Matter organizers "maggots and parasites" in his weekly message. Bishop Timothy Doherty suspended the Rev. Theodore Rothrock from St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Carmel on Wednesday. "The Bishop expresses pastoral concern for the affected communities," the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana said in a statement Wednesday. "The suspension offers the Bishop an opportunity for pastoral discernment for the good of the diocese and for the good of Father Rothrock."
Rothrock, who previously was poised to become pastor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, will no longer transition to that role. Deacon Bill Reid will serve as administrator of St. Elizabeth Seton. According to the diocese's statement "various possibilities for his public continuation in priestly ministry are being considered." In Rothrock's original message posted on Sunday, June 28, he wrote that the church must oppose Black Lives Matter and Antifa and carry the "message of peace."
"The only lives that matter are their own and the only power they seek is their own," Rothrock wrote of Black Lives Matter organizers. "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." The post has since been removed from the church's website. The Pastor was right and actions against him were dumb and a perfect example of liberal political correctness.
