This morning Sky TV News broadcast an interview with a young homosexual man whose partner, a Muslim, committed suicide because, when he “came out” to his family, they suggested he try to obtain a cure. His partner is today undertaking a charity walk for the purpose of raising awareness of “homophobia” in “faith communities.” More on this story here
Refusal of faith communities to accept the legitimacy of homosexual partnerships is enraging the “tolerance” brigade. Any dissent from their views is not to be… er… tolerated. Below is a very interesting article on the mounting pressure from homosexuals within the Catholic Church, by American Catholic lawyer, Christopher Ferrara, who suggests that the evidence points to the Vatican caving in to the “gay agenda”. Read on and tell us if you agree…
As Cardinal Burke warns that the “gay lobby” within the Catholic Church is plotting for disaster at the Synod, civil society is increasingly dominated by a “homo-Fascism,” aided and abetted by the mass media, that demands absolute conformity on the part of Christians to social acceptance of the sin of sodomy.
Witness the debacle in Indiana, where a state version of the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act, designed to protect Christians from demands that they accommodate the “gay agenda” in their businesses — as, for example, by selling “gay wedding” cakes with two male figurines on top — came under furious attack by the media-driven homo-Fascist juggernaut. Within days of the law’s passage, Governor Pence, running for the tall grass, promised to “fix it” by way of legislative amendments that not only gut the law but actually turn it into a “gay rights” measure. And the amended law has just been signed into law by the Governor.
As LifeSiteNews rightly noted before the amended law was enacted, “the proposed ‘fix’ amounts to nothing less than a wholesale repeal of the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act with respect to those who need religious liberty protections the most.” The Indiana law now actually prohibits discrimination based on “sexual orientation” — that is, the practice of sodomy and living in unholy “unions” that diabolically mock and defile the sacrament of Holy Matrimony. What is now effectively Indiana’s first statewide “gay rights” law allows narrow exemptions only for churches and other nonprofit religious organizations. The protection for private businesses has been removed, leaving business owners subject to “gay” demands that they lend their goods and services to “gay weddings,” “gay bachelor” parties, and other such abominations arising from the sin of sodomy. Christians will be required to kowtow to “gay community” activists who demand services for their “gay-themed” sodomitical events.
In a matter of days, then, Indiana went from passing a law that protected Christians from extortionate demands that they endorse sodomy to a law that compels them to do so! Such is the power of the homo-Fascist enterprise. All over the Western world homo-Fascism is on a conquering march.
And the Vatican’s response? Nothing beyond Francis’ infamous “Who am I to judge” regarding hypothetical godly “gays” in the Catholic hierarchy. Worse than silence, the Pope has placed Msgr. Battista Ricca, a flagrant homosexual embroiled in numerous scandals arising from his homosexual activities, in charge of the very household he occupies, prompting the renowned Vaticanist Sandro Magister to dub Ricca “the prelate of the gay lobby.” This infamous photograph of Ricca and Francis is an iconic depiction of the Vatican’s total capitulation to the “gay agenda.”
Then there is the Pope’s “private” audience and warm embrace — promptly broadcast to the world — with a “transsexual” woman who pretends to be a man and “his” supposed fiancée.
And, just days ago, the astounding installation of Juan Barros as the new Bishop of the Diocese of Osorno, Chile, despite substantial credible evidence, presented to Francis, that Barros both witnessed and later covered up the homosexual predations of boys by his close friend Rev. Fernando Karadima. Although the statute of limitations had run on Karadima’s crimes, the Vatican found him guilty of sexual abuse in 2011, ordering him to a “life of prayer and penitence” (an order he has flouted). The outrageous elevation of Barros to the office of bishop was greeted by massive protests against his installation by members of the laity, who literally tried physically to prevent it.
Also, let us not forget that with Francis’ explicit approval the first session of the ludicrously misnamed “Synod on the Family” published to the world a document — never approved and in fact later rejected by the Synod Fathers — that calls for “valuing” the “homosexual orientation” and the “gifts” of homosexuals and depicts “homosexual unions” as providing “precious support in the life of the partners.”
This Eastertide we remembered the Passion of Our Lord. Today the Church, which is His Mystical Body, is undergoing its own passion. And the horrific reality is that many of those who are wielding the whips by which the Church is being scourged belong to her upper hierarchy. Thus do we see confirmed Cardinal Ciappi’s revelation that the Third Secret prophesies an apostasy that “begins at the top.” And if what we are witnessing is not apostasy, then the word has lost its meaning.
We take our consolation from the fact that the Church, like Our Lord Himself, will ultimately overcome this crisis. But how much she will have to endure before that happens remains a terrifying unknown whose outcome, however, seems to be depicted in that vision of a devastated city and the execution of the Pope atop a nearby hill — appropriately enough, at the foot of a large wooden cross.
