Fr. Dominic Valanmanal, Please Stop Attacking Autistics

It’s painful when other priests attack autistics. One was popular so I wrote about him.

Fr. Dominic Valanmanal is at it again. This priest compared us autistics to animals and blamed our existence on our parents’ sins. This priest is back at it offering counseling to families with autistics in them. This is problematic as he clearly misunderstands autism.

I already covered why sin does not cause autism in relation to Fr. Valanmanal, so I won’t repeat that. I will instead note his recent actions, his non-apology, and what you can do.

I wrote the whole thing on Patheos.
