Default suspended priest selling fake marriages

This story is very disturbing:
http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/sus...r-gay-couples/

The priest was suspended two years ago for publicly promoting gay marriage. On his website, he attacks the teaching of the Church and the Vatican on sexuality and marriage. He is in a state of formal heresy, and is therefore automatically excommunicated.

He also offers weddings and wedding Masses for a fee. This is the grave sin of simony.

He should be laicized by the diocese.

I should also point out that any heterosexual couples who go to him for marriage probably do not receive a valid marriage because they lack proper form.

He is on my list of false claims of private revelation:

I remind members not to promote, in this group, any private revelation on the false list here:
