Tucho’s Porn-Theology: Orgasm Like Paradise

Orgasm like an anticipation of Paradise. Emerging from oblivion is La Pasión Mística, a shocking book published in 1998 by the current Prefect of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith (DDF) , Victor Fernández. A morbid focus on sexual union as an act decoupled from procreation and as pleasure alone with a ‘pathological’ account of a mystical-erotic experience.

After the ‘theology’ of the kiss, that of the orgasm. A book from oblivion brings to the public eye all the many shadows of the personality of the new prefect of the DDF.

It was the year 1998: Victor M. Fernández had been a priest for twelve years, a graduate in Biblical Theology at the Gregorian for ten and a Doctor of Theology at the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina in Buenos Aires for eight. In that year, Tucho published a book for Ediciones Dabar, entitled La Pasión Mística. Espiritualidad y Sensualidad, literally a book of ‘pornology’, in which Tucho lingered morbidly over the details of erotic life and the orgasm. A book that followed by just three years the better-known one on kissing Sáname con tu boca. El arte de besar, a publication that was exhumed on the occasion of his appointment as Prefect of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith and for which he had defended himself by saying that it was a booklet that collected a catechesis for adolescents, when he was a young parish priest. Given the encore, Tucho must have been very fond of teenage booklets….

The 1998 book disappeared from the face of the earth and was never heard of again. Fernández, since 1993 vice-dean of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Buenos Aires, was thus able to take off and become first dean, then vice-dean of the Pontifical University of the Argentine capital (2002), and finally rector (2011). However, someone must have felt a certain annoyance at seeing this character, without merit or adequate competence, rise to the position of Prefect of the DDF and demolish, document after document, what remains healthy in the Catholic Church. Particularly indigestible was the latest stunt to humiliate the Church before the world, by allowing the blessing of sodomite couples through the Declaration of 18 December last year, and with the ridiculous justification given by the Press Release of 4 January, that of the 10-15 second blessings.
