Gay altar server who filed discrimination complaint against bishop says he lives ‘chaste lifestyle’

July 17, 2009

Jim Corcoran, the gay Canadian altar server who filed a disrimination complaint with the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal after his removal from his liturgical ministry, has reiterated that he lives a “chaste lifestyle.”

“There’s nothing wrong with being a gay Catholic and you’re entitled to all the rights and sacraments in the Church, except for marriage,” said Jim Corcoran, who filed a complaint against 12 fellow parishioners and Bishop Nicola de Angelis of Peterborough, Ontario. “A good gay Catholic should be chaste.… I live a chaste lifestyle anyway.”
