Rev. Juan Andres Quevedo-Bosch, 59, came on pulpit to give Sunday sermon and announced that he is gay and that he is divorcing his wife for a marital union with a younger man.
The Rev. Juan Andres Quevedo-Bosch
A church congregation in Queens, New York was utterly shocked by the confessions of their priest, in the person of Rev. Juan Andres Quevedo-Bosch, 59, who mounted the church podium to announce his homosexual status. He also shockingly revealed he would be divorcing his wife and marrying a younger male lover.
It should be noted that Rev. Juan Andres Quevedo-Bosch, is the archdeacon of Queens and rector of the Church of the Redeemer in Astoria,
On a Facebook post this week, the Cuban-born prelate announced that he got married in a Los Angeles church.
“I’m in Miami Beach with my new husband. God is good,” he wrote in a caption of a picture on the beach.
This revelation has reportedly affected the numerical size of the church as parishioners have opted for other churches within the vicinity. This was revealed to the New York post by an unnamed elderly woman. In her words:
“Most of the people aren’t coming anymore,”
“Because he’s homosexual, people have stopped coming.”
In the same vain, some church members have also stood up in support of the priest who has opted to resign.
While talking to the Post, Quevedo-Bosch would not answer questions about his former wife Adria or their divorce. He revealed very little about his new marriage to the unidentified man.
“I am aware that there have been concerns regarding my divorce and subsequent remarriage and have been in touch with my bishop and my congregation about them".
