However, his director of communications, Mike Brown, has told LifeSite that his activities are under “review” by the archdiocese. Now LifeSite has verified that, in the months since the archdiocese’s director of communications assured LifeSite that the deacon’s articles for the Bay Area Reporter were “part of the review process” being applied to him, the deacon has continued to write movie reviews and other articles for the newspaper that speak approvingly of obscene movies about homosexual relationships and even directly attack the Catholic faith. Archbishop Cordileone’s apparent acceptance of Bromberger’s job as a writer for the Bay Area Reporter is in stark contrast to his numerous public statements condemning homosexual behavior and homosexual “marriage.” Archbishop Cordileone’s reputation has been so strong in this regard that he was made the chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage. As of 2017 he is no longer a member of the committee. WARNING: MUCH DISTURBING AND OBSCENE MATERIAL FOLLOWS, PARTICULARLY IN LINKED MATERIAL Recent Bromberger articles for the Bay Area Reporter have included a sympathetic review of a book about a homosexual who died of AIDS, in which Bromberger calls the homosexual’s mother a “Catholic fanatic” for inducing him to repent of his sodomy before he died, and writes disparagingly about Catholic teachings on homosexuality in general.

The film is raw and naturalistic, and we see every body fluid, human and animal.” In his review of the homosexual “teen romance” film “Center of my World,” Bromberger approvingly describes scenes of two male teenagers copulating with each other. “Phil watches Nicholas on the track field and they become friendly,” writes Bromberger. “Phil realizes they’d met years back as kids in a grocery store.
