The Vatican kicked him out and his diocese fired him, but Krzysztof Charamsa says his faith is not shaken. If anything, he says he's a better priest for coming out — and it's time for the Church to wake up, NBC News reported.
With Catholic bishops set to release a report on issues of family, Charamsa spoke to NBC News about how he lost his.
The life he'd built evaporated when Charamsa stood before television cameras on Oct. 3 alongside his boyfriend and announced he was gay. The Vatican called the declaration "very serious and irresponsible," dismissing Charamsa from his work there and from his teaching roles.
To Charamsa, that meant losing everything while gaining something new: total freedom.
