Is Homo-Fascism Dominating Vatican?

gay marriageThis 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.

Our Lady of Fatima, intercede for us!  Source

      • Canada is one of the worst countries in the world for the Homosexual agenda and way of life .Its practically against the law not to be Homosexual their Government is filled with Homosexuals and Lesbians touting out their filth through teaching kids as young as 5 about Homosexual and sodomy practices .Also please people stop referring to Homosexuals using the G.y word there is nothing gay about it unless of course you are a BBC presenter on a huge salary seems it’s a must to be Homosexual now to get employed by them.

        • Same sex attraction is , and always has been part of human nature . Canada has been a champion for their equal rights .
          God will bless Canada!!

          • So Randy, are you saying that because a certain form of behaviour is part of human nature that it’s automatically good? Can you spot any flaws in your logic?

          • Randy: Your argument is flawed as suggested by Therese, below. We must pray for our Homosexual Brothers and Sisters because they are pilgrims through life like the rest of mankind.
            For you to support the sin implicit in their behaviour is doing them, yourself and the world immense harm.

            Holy Mother Church teaches us we must love and respect each other and that includes our Homosexual Brothers and Sisters. But that doesn’t mean we must approve their sinful behaviour any more that we should approve or support the sinful behaviour of our Brothers and Sisters who have the aberration of a sexual attraction to children. (Paedophilia)

            We all should pray for each other.

        • “Its practically against the law not to be Homosexual ”

          LOL !

          It’s the same in the UK !

  1. “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.”

    I agree totally with Christopher Ferrara on this. Anyone who holds a view that is not in line with the homosexual agenda, is a misfit these days and called names such as “homophobe” and “bigot”.

  2. I too agree with Christopher Ferrara and with what you say with regard to a Pope Francis who would seem to be compliant with the homosexual lifestyle, or at least he makes moves to suggest this.

    But on the 15th of April, he spoke put against the new gender ideology, beloved of radical feminism and the homosexual lobby. Apparently he said that the need to cancel out the sexual difference between man and woman, a mindset now busily at work in its inculcation into society, is pursued by these groups, because they are no longer able to face up to the very difference which prevails, despite attack.

    It is the first in a long time that I have actually agreed with the Pope. Moreover, that actual sentiment he expressed I hadn’t formulated.

    But it adds up. The media are pursuing the new gender ideology relentlessly. Many newspapers, TV and radio stations promote the new way to be. As I wrote( the first time, my comment disappeared) Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour was talking wedding dresses, and of course, the homosexual wedding attire had to be flagged up!, it is the drip, drip, drip effect that the media does so very well.

    And yet there is a pervasive anger from this lobby, first because there are those who will not bend t o the new thinking and a furious exasperation, just at the fact that it is women who bear children. And that is where the Popes comment reverberated with me. The gender ideology indeed cannot face up the that fact that there is the difference. That’s the bottom line.

    We need our hierarchy to say they believe in what the Church teaches for it is becoming more difficult to hold the line. And if you write to the secular press, don’t be of faint heart!

    • Spero,

      The major problem with Pope Francis is that he sends mixed signals. On the one hand, as you say, he speaks out against the “new gender ideology” and the next minute he panders to it – as mentioned by Christopher Ferrara who linked to this report on the Pope’s meeting with a “transsexual”. Horrendous stuff.

      So my default position is to be 100% wary of absolutely everything Pope Francis says, no matter where he says it, and 120% wary when he’s travelling by plane…

      PS – your post was in the moderation box where I found it minutes ago. I have no idea why it went there, and can only presume there is some “banned” word in there somewhere. Sorry about that.

      • Editor

        I couldn’t agree more. Bishop Fellay was absolutely correct when he said Pope Francis is the first truly Modernist pope. Yes, he does, on occasion, reiterate Catholic dogma, but he is just as likely to contradict it in the very next sentence he utters. He is, sadly, a danger to our faith and listening to him, or reading his writings, without being on your guard, is surely an occasion of sin.

          • Randy,

            Your name rang an (alarm) bell so I checked back comments from your last visit to this blog and didn’t much like what I read. Now I know that, worryingly, it really wasn’t your “last” visit. It’s the way I tell ’em…

            Be aware that we have had some comments disappear from this blog recently, which was a mystery to us until dear old WordPress Support fixed it for us.

            If your posts start to disappear, believe me, there’ll be no mystery about it. At the first sign that you are here for the sheer fun of it, you’ll be disappearing faster than a chocolate teapot at a barbecue.

            Do they HAVE tea at a barbecue, Petrus?

            • Ed you only have to dissect his name to know which camp he is in,or understand why if he is a he why he is camp. Was talking to some friends and i think ,if we haven’t destroyed ourselves with nuclear weapons ,that Phedohpiliea will be legal in approx 10 years they said no way .If someone had said Homosexuality would be compulsory “as that’s the way it’s going”10’years ago what do you think the answer would have been .Am no prude but what the hells going on especially when you hear politicians like that Tristram Hunt on TV spouting about teaching 5 year old kids about Homosexuality .The games a bogey .

              • FOOF,
                your comment about paedophilia becoming legal, etc, rings a bell. What I mean to say is, only a few days ago, I was with some friends and we were discussing the depth to which morals and values have fallen in the past 20 years. if we had been canvassing for a “no” vote in the Irish referendum in 1995 we would have got close to 100% agreement: “there’s no way I’d vote for THAT!” would be a typical comment. Paedophilia and sodomy are both sexual aberrations (is that the right word?’ disorders), but only one of them is acceptable in society, while the other is (rightly) condemned.

              • FOOF and Spiritus,

                There is a movement promoting Paedophile rights, using the same arguments as the homosexuals used. The lowering of the age of consent is one of Peter Tatchell’s determined aims and so the stage is set and, like you, I expect paedophilia to be legalised in the future – except, of course, they won’t call it that. Just as the homosexuals agreed that nobody would vote to legalise “sodomy” (so we need to find a new word, and came up with “gay”) so the paedophile movement will find a new name and we’ll all be debating whether or not it should be legalised.

                As you say, the game’s a bogey!

      • Yes I am baffled by some of the Holy Fathers announcements. Why does he choose to speak ambiguously.? I am sure he is an intelligent man, I am equally sure he knows that he speaks ambiguously. Is it a deliberate tactic, if so what is he seeking to achieve?
        I recall some months ago he made a comment ( forget what is was) but my 15 year old Grandson said with a grimace on his face, “that just doesn’t make sense”
        Someone should tell him that confusion is not a gift of the Holy Spirit, but again he should know that also….. Its all too much for this poor punter from the pews.

        The truth in its essence, demands clarity otherwise it ceases to be the truth.

        • Geoffkiernan,

          “Yes I am baffled by some of the Holy Fathers announcements. Why does he choose to speak ambiguously.? I am sure he is an intelligent man”

          Well, I’m not so sure about the intelligence – all that we hear about the conclave reminds me of the way USA Presidents are “made” – selected and then made in the image of their masters. The more malleable, the better.

          It’s important to remember that he has a PR guru advising him and cultivating his image.

          He’s a very strange pope, in more than one sense.

          Our Lady of Fatima, pray for him.

  3. A good article by Chris Ferrara – as always. Also, has anyone noticed the recent concerted media push regarding so-called ‘transgenderism’? Hardly a day has gone by recently without some new ‘trans’ story in the media. And nearly always a positive portrayal, of course. Typified by this article:- http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/the-filter/11542606/How-the-transgender-community-went-mainstream.html (warning: contains a rather unpleasant picture/partial nudity). There has also been an increasing amount of stories regarding very young children who are ‘transitioning’. God help them. I remember reading an article a while ago, about a man who underwent ‘gender realignment surgery’ to turn into a ‘woman’. He was lauded and feted by the media, until – some years later – he realised his mistake and came to see that all he had ever needed was psychiatric help for the disorder, and not surgery. He underwent further surgery to return to living as a man again, and also spoke out about his experience. He was subsequently vilified by the media and the ‘LGBT’ brigade. He wrote a book about his experience – I can’t remember his name at the moment, if I can find it via Google, I’ll let you know. I didn’t read the book, but I read a couple of his articles, and they were fascinating. I think there has been something of an attempt to suppress them, though. The truth is usually the first casualty in these sort of instances.

    • WF,

      I, too, have noticed the push to present, as normal, and even desirable, “transgenderism” or “transsexualism” or whatever it’s called, and there is a definite focus on children. There was a report a week or two ago on mainstream news (BBC I think) about parents arranging for their children to change genders. Unbelievable stuff.

      If they can find some way of making me into an alien and I can live in relative peace in outer space for the rest of my life, I’ll consider it. Right now, I’m remaining the slim, glamorous, fashionable etc etc gal about town that you all know and… well… that you all know 😀

  4. If business owners are forced by secular law to offer services in spite of their moral objections, is it fair to do so whilst remembering Our Lord’s words “Render unto Caesar….”?
    I’m sure these poor people in the U.S. tried their best to avoid this situation where they can now be prosecuted for their faith.
    As a business owner I find this conundrum very difficult ; as a Christian, very easy.

    • John Henderson,

      Well said. Your final sentence is heartening and reveals the truth that the grace is there for the taking, for those who have eyes to see…

      If only those business people who worry about the money and practical realities at stake would realise that God is not outdone in generosity. It’s the same with double-speaking politicians, who think their Catholic beliefs will lead to the end of their career, when the very opposite is true. People are hungry for the truth, for Christ. What blindness not to see that.

  5. Editor

    I agree that one has to be very careful when reading or hearing what Pope a Francis has said. I wonder altogether about the conflicting nature of the messages he sends out.

    I have noticed the hype in the media around the transgender- ing of people and, especially of youngsters. It is part of the same enculturation of deliberately blurring the differences between make and female.

    There is even now an “Agenda” clothing being promoted, for the new gender neutral person, “free” of the confinement of being just a man, or a woman.

    Last week, a play on radio 4 introduced us to the new world, where ” people ” are neither male nor female.

    Why is this ideology being pushed in this way?

    • Spero,

      That’s a very good question – why IS this “transgender” ideology being pushed in this way?

      If we remember that Sr Lucia revealed that the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin perhaps it becomes a little clearer.

      It seems to me that the diabolical disorientation foretold at Fatima has been fulfilled, in extreme measure, in our times not least through the sexualisation of children and the approval of disordered relationships, once criminalized and now legal. Now – near the end of this diabolically disoriented period, and before the Consecration of Russia – it may be that the last hurdle is to diabolically disorientate, in a final twist, the one creature made in the image of God – the human being. Enter the “transgender person”.

      That’s what sprang to my mind on reading your excellent question, but maybe others have a different slant on it. If so, let’s hear it!

      • Editor,
        This is a short and clear summary!
        I do not think that there is anything to add to what you wrote.
        You have well received and described the root cause of the situation…

      • Editor,

        I agree with Lionel, you have said it all! Executive bonus for that response. 😀

        “the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin“. Nothing else makes sense. Practically, homosexuality, ‘transgendering’ a person, and other perversions do not assure the continuation of society (no people=no society :roll:) A society given to wallowing in pleasure ends up dissipating itself into oblivion. So for laws to be passed to achieve this undesirable end is beyond stupid, it is purely evil. What else makes sense except to realize this is perhaps,the final battle between heaven and hell, here on earth.

        it may be that the last hurdle is to diabolically disorientate, in a final twist, the one creature made in the image of God – the human being. Enter the “transgender person”.. Perceptive. Brilliant.

  6. Spero,

    Having lived in Africa for the last 30 years of my life I would like to try to comfort you with the knowledge that the twisted agendas and fads of western media have not invaded every part of the Christian world.

    Being an occasional Sky News viewer, I can’t help but fear for the sanity and well-being of western Catholics who are constantly bombarded by anathema like transgenderism, gay marriage, child porn etc.

    Rest assured that God’s children are many and varied and don’t necessarily adhere to western modern conventions.

    In short, this “ideology” is something that right minded people all over the world do not accept or condone.
    There’s a big world out there😀

    • Just wandering why 30,000 of god’s children are dying everyday from hunger and dirty water complications? ?
      Makes a person wonder if there is a god??

      • “Just wandering why 30,000 of god’s children are dying everyday from hunger and dirty water complications? ?”

        War, and corrupt governments who take from their people the basic means of survival such as clean water, nourishing food, medicines and a means of earning a living. the land is dry and parched and cannot sustain crops or animals, the water is poisoned with natural and chemical toxins, and the natural resources of these countries have been plundered by the greedy west.

        That’s a lot of why.
        As for “Makes a person wonder if there is a god??”. For those who have not faith no explanation is possible, for those who have faith no explanation is necessary.

  7. Keep the faith Randy. We all move on.
    Don’t want to seem to be arguing with you.
    If you need answers to these questions I am certainly not qualified to provide them.
    God bless

    • And this is not the thread on which to provide them.

      Please stick to the topic – do not be distracted by Randy. He is now placed in moderation so any comments which include his name will also go into moderation. They will be released (a) when I see them which today will be late afternoon and (b) if they are on topic and contributing to the discussion.

      The topic is homo-fascism. Not the existence of God. Do not allow Randy to take us off topic. He has form on this, so I’m not giving any third chances. He’s had one warning, ignored, so he has “done the crime” and now “must do the time” 😀

      Thank you.

  8. This has been a long term goal of the NWO to marginalise Christians who do not embrace homosexuality.
    There are another ten goals which have almost been achieved
    1)take God and prayer out of education system.
    2)Reduce parental authority over children( promote excessive child rights)
    3) Destroy christianfamily structure. (Promote sexual promiscuity)
    4) sex is free then make abortion legal and make it easy to obtain one
    5)Make divorce easy and legal free people from the concept of marriage for life
    6)make homosexuality an alternative lifestyle
    7) debase art( films songs etc)
    8)Use media to change mindset press radio TV adverts magazines( who hosts chat shows Graham Norton
    Clare Balding they also host weekend radio shows as well as Allan Carr ? .
    9) create interfaith movement (this way Catholic faith will be pushed down
    10). Get government to make all these laws and get the church to endorse these changes

  9. The man I mentioned in my previous comment has a web site – here it is. http://www.sexchangeregret.com If anyone knows of another person who is thinking of ‘transitioning’ or any parents who are thinking of letting their child ‘transition’ – they need to read this site – in double quick time. While looking for this info, one recurring theme on the internet was that of ‘trans’ activists intimidating and denouncing anyone who dares to admit that their surgical procedure was a mistake.

    I agree with the previous comments (Editor, Jobstears) about the quote from Sister Lucia regarding the devil. A holy priest once told me that the devil always attempts to ape the divine, so instead of the natural order of things:- i.e. men and women and the sacrament of marriage, he is busy producing counterfeit versions.

    • Westminster Fly,

      That article about regretting sex change is really, really, interesting. Thank you for posting it. I was riveted. It’s interesting that this is not given more publicity in the broadcasts and newsprint articles on the subject. So far, I have the impression that everyone who has had a sex change operation is very happy with their new situation. Obviously, that’s not true and the media don’t want the facts to be known. I call that shameful.

    • WF,

      I think public figures like royalty (and now the Pope) think they are improving their “image” by being seen with these “trans” people. It’s very sad, really, and shows a profound lack of character and good judgment on their part. If they think such publicity improves the standing of the Royal Family, Vatican or papacy, then they really must think again.

      Can’t helping hoping that the new royal baby is another boy, just in case George decides later in life that he would prefer to switch genders. By that time, of course, goodness knows what other options will be available to him (or “her”!) 😯

  10. Comment removed.

    Inappropriate, to say the least. We are not afraid to criticise the Pope for his public statements and actions. Any innuendo about his personal life, however, is in a quite different category and not remotely suited to a Catholic blog. We make absolutely NO personal judgements here about anyone.

  11. Has anyone heard anything of the 300 page dossier about the sodomite mafia within the Church, prepared for Pope Benedict before his abdication? Just asking.

    It appears, for the present, to have been treated in the same way as the hidden part of the Message of Fatima, which in the reported words of Cardinal Ottaviani was dropped down “a deep, dark well”.

    I don’t know if many have read about the following story, but it looks like the Swiss Guard need to be, shall we say, ah hem, “on their guard” inside the walls.

    http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/retired-swiss-guard-commander-confirms-existence-of-vaticans-gay-lobby

    • Leo,

      Excellent question – nope. I, for one, have heard nothing about the 300 page dossier prepared for Pope Benedict. Just saying 😀

      The report about the Swiss Guards is very interesting. I think I read it at the time, but had forgotten about it. In due course, all will be revealed, and there will be no more cover up. They’d better start bracing themselves inside those Vatican walls…

  12. Anyone who can stomach a truly revelatory account of the massive infiltration of perversion and heresy into seminaries over the last fifty years should read Goodbye! Good Men, by Michael Rose. Opening the book at random and spending half an hour reading it is enough to make the point.

    It should also be said that the late Father John O’Connor O.P., who spoke out courageously against some of the ills of the Church, once spoke of the forced entry of perverts into the priesthood in North America happening as far back as the mid-fifties. No doubt on a lesser scale than the subsequent invasion, but significant none the less.

    Some of the most notorious episcopal “concealers” of sexual abuse of minors over the last five decades have been out and out liberals who have actively attacked Catholic faith and doctrine. One of them, in the US, paid a six figure amount to buy the silence of his homosexual “lover”.

  13. Those who rely on the secular media for information on this subject might be forgiven for being unaware of the fact that liberal, dissenting bishops were involved in some of the worst cases of cover up. I believe that in one relatively small US diocese, sodomy was widespread amongst the clergy.

    This scourge may have really metastasised in recent decades but, sad to sad, it is not a complete novelty for the Church. In previous times, She took an appropriately serious view of immorality amongst the clergy.The Code of Canon Law undertaken at the initiative and encouragement of Saint Pius X, and published in 1917 by his successor Pope Benedict XV, says this:

    “So far as laymen are concerned, the sin of sodomy is punished ipso facto with the pain of infamy and other sanctions to be applied according to the prudent judgment of the Bishop depending on the gravity of each case (Can. 2357). As for ecclesiastics and religious, if they are clerici minoris [that is, of the degree lower than deacon], let them be punished with various measures, proportional to the gravity of the fault, that can even include dismissal from the clerical state (Can. 2358); if they are clerici maiores [that is, deacons, priests or bishops], let them ‘be declared infamous and suspended from every post, benefit, dignity, deprived of their eventual stipend and, in the gravest cases, let them be deposed’ (Can. 2359, par. 2)”

    If we go back to the sixteenth century, we can see how Pope Saint Pius V dealt with the abomination among the ranks of the clergy, in his Constitution, Horrendum Illud Scelus:

    Pius, Bishop (St. Pope Pius V)
    Servant of the Servants of God

    For perpetual memory of the matter.

    A ghastly crime, by which the joined (papal) states were polluted enflamed by God’s fearful judgment, flares up our bitter sorrow, and gravely moves our soul so that we lend now our attentions to repress it as much as possible.
    1. It was properly denoted by the Lateran Council, that whatsoever Cleric will have been discovered to suffer from that incontinence which is against nature, on account of which the wrath of God falls upon the sons of disobedience (cf. Vulg. Eph. 5,6), is to be ejected from the ranks of the clergy and be reduced to do penance in a monastery.
    2. But lest the contagion of such a scourge, from the hope of impunity which is the greatest lure of sinning, more confidently grows in power, We determine that clerics guilty of this execrable crime are to be quite gravely punished, so that whoever does not abhor the ruination of the soul, the avenging secular sword of civil laws will certainly deter.
    3. And thus because We have made a decree in this matter at the beginning of Our Pontificate, now in a fuller and stronger way intending it to be followed strictly, every and all priests, whoever they are, and other secular clerics, and regular clerics of any grade and dignity, busy at such a detestable monstrosity, We deprive of every clerical privilege, every office, dignity, and ecclesiastical benefice by authority of the present legal instrument. So it is enacted that once they are degraded by the Ecclesiastical Judge, they be handed over immediately to the secular arm, which will exact upon them the same (death) penalty, which is ascertained to have been constituted by legitimate sanctions against laymen who have slid down into this ruin. Nothing to the contrary withstanding, etc.
    Given at Rome at St. Peter’s, 30 August in the Year of the Lord’s Incarnation 1568 during the third year of Our Pontificate.

    I think that’s all very clear. Note the mention of the death penalty. Pope Saint Pius V obviously didn’t hail from the “who am I to judge” school.

    • Well said, Leo,

      I don’t think we’ve ever HAD a pope before who “hailed from the ‘who am I to judge’ school (of non-thought!)

  14. Speaking of Homo-fascism, the Herald reports on the latest of the Fr Despard story. A Church tribunal has ruled against him in 21 of 26 charges presented.

    The tribunal ruled that Father Despard had injured the good reputation of a number of people, both lay and clergy.

    (Ed – I don’t think there is a Fr Despard thread active currently; I thought here was the most apt place to post this news – apologies if mistaken).

    Methinks whenever the next abuse scandal or O’Brien-esque embarrassment breaks, this tribunal will be shown in a poor light.

    • Gabriel Syme,

      That’s fine to post here and very interesting indeed.

      I’ve got to head off to an appointment, so will study this and comment later. Many thanks for alerting us to this latest news, the consequences of which will surely not be good for Fr Despard.

    • Crofterlady,

      The article doesn’t say who sat on the tribunal – I daresay it was a cabal of those men exposed by Fr Despards book!

      Bishop Toal is quoted as vaguely referring to “the judges” and it is mentioned that Fr Despard himself was not present but was represented by a lawyer.

      Some of the comments on the Herald article are interesting – one poster notes that the tribunal is not an independent body and asks if it will publish its findings.

      I don’t think the Church has done itself any favours with its handling of these accusations, especially when juxtaposed with the Cardinal O’Brien scandal.

      • Oh, I see. Thank you Gabriel Syme. So really, this “judgement” is pointless and useless and doesn’t mean a thing.

        Poor priest, I hope he doesn’t take the same “prayer and penance” course as in the Cardinal!

        • CROFTERLADY

          I would have thought that Fr Despard would have been “praying” for the same “penance”(?) as the Cardinal.

          A few months in Rome followed by a moonlight flitting into a £200,000
          house in the Lake District seems like the type of penance I have been praying for for years now.

      • Gabriel Syme,

        I’ve now read the Herald article and my first thought was how interesting it is that the Diocese felt the need to institute this process against Fr Despard, while taking no action whatsoever against any other priest, no matter the offence.

        I note (from the comments) that Fr Despard plans to appeal, but given what has happened since this debacle began, I think the outcome of that is a foregone conclusion.

    • WF,

      I’ve dipped into the Renew article and am already hooked. Will finish it later and then look at your second link. It is useful to understand the history of how both feminism and homosexualism came to be so dominant in the world.

  15. Must the two figures of “men” on so called wedding cakes be made of sugar or marzipan. …..surely it is not above the wit of man to make the figures out of alternative material close the hearts of sodomites…..win…win….as far as I can see.

  16. Helen,

    If I have understood the joke properly, I can advise in the manner of a crossword puzzle clue…..

    – Foul smelling and rhymes with ‘Kite’

    (Or perhaps you were right that we should not elaborate too much haha!)

  17. “The Homosexual Manifesto” by Michael Swift, “Gay Revolutionary” and reprinted from The Congressional Record of the United States Congress, makes for some extremely ugly and terrifying reading for all men of good will. I first saw it published on the “Defend the Family” website. A few excerpts:

    “We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us….

    Our writers and artists will make love between men fashionable and de rigueur, and we will succeed because we are adept at setting styles. We will eliminate heterosexual liaisons through usage of the devices of wit and ridicule, devices which we are skilled in employing.

    We will unmask the powerful homosexuals who masquerade as heterosexuals. You will be shocked and frightened when you find that your presidents and their sons, your industrialists, your senators, your mayors, your generals, your athletes, your film stars, your television personalities, your civic leaders, YOUR PRIESTS* are not the safe, familiar, bourgeois, heterosexual figures you assumed them to be. We are everywhere; we have infiltrated your ranks. Be careful when you speak of homosexuals because we are always among you; we may be sitting across the desk from you; we may be sleeping in the same bed with you….

    We shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies and distortions. We shall portray the homosexuality of the great leaders and thinkers who have shaped the world. We will demonstrate that homosexuality and intelligence and imagination are inextricably linked, and that homosexuality is a requirement for true nobility, true beauty in a man.

    We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages. We too are capable of firing guns and manning the barricades of the ultimate revolution.

    Tremble, HETERO SWINE*, when we appear before you without our masks.”

    (* My emphasis)

    This is their aim – to worm their way into every ‘institution’ with their filthy customs and behaviour, taking the reins from God’s people and making their own devious way of life “victorious”. Is it any wonder they have even managed to infiltrate the Vatican? “Fair is foul, and foul is fair” (Macbeth).

    There is no doubt about it that they are succeeding too; they MUST be stopped. We have the whole of Heaven on our side to fight back – no small force! 🙂

    • Kathleen,

      Thanks for that very powerful extract from the book “The Homosexual Manifesto”. It really is scary. Their aim is really obvious and that quote confirms it – they want to take over the moral law and pervert it completely. Sadly, they seem to be succeeding.

    • Kathleen: well said. You remind me of another Kathleen……God bless you for your perceptiveness, your zeal, and your obvious love of Our Lord and His Church.
      And God bless the ed. and sites like these…..
      The Church is sorely in need of real men and women to fight the good fight. I breathe easier.
      I suspect this Kathleen and the other are one and the same….Too bad, we could do with two of you

      • Many thanks Margaret Mary and Geoff.

        The ‘Homosexual Lobby’ do indeed seem to be succeeding in their perverse aims, brainwashing or intimidating large swathes of the world to accept and even promote their diabolical ideology, and daily growing more strident and powerful. Their greatest achievement is the evidence of their success in infiltrating the highest ranks of the very Bride of Christ Herself (as Editor points out in her article.) This is indeed the scariest thing of all! The scandal this brings the faithful makes me shudder to think of the judgement that will fall on these men when they meet their Creator!

        For us in the pews, now is the time when leading lives of total faithfulness to Christ’s Divine Law, together with prayer (especially the Rosary), sacrifice and penances are more necessary than ever before, and are our greatest weapons in this spiritual battle being waged for the souls of men.

        (Yes Geoff, I’m one and the same ‘Kathleen’ from CP&S 🙂 and it is very nice to see your good self commenting here too on this illustrious blog – a real bastion of true Catholicism.)

        • Kathleen,

          Again, thank you for your great comments and kind praise of our humble blog. Given how busy you must be running your own excellent blog, your time spent here is twice as gratefully received.

          I’m amazed that you even found us – we’re never included on any of the “top” blogs links list, those that have lists that is – I suspect because of our open support for the SSPX, although the feminists might wonder if it’s because there’s a woman spouting forth here, who knows!

          Anyway, however you found us, you are very welcome indeed. I’ve been away from my computer a lot in the past couple of days so will be catching up with some of the lengthier posts, your own on homosexuality included, asap. Look forward to it.

  18. Kathleen, while using your link I also found this, and wonder if you have come across the book in question, and if so, whether it is worth getting it. From the little I have seen on other links it is even more frightening than the Homosexual Manifesto, as it is documenting things that are already happening big time in our society. For the life of me I can’t understand why ordinary people, who wouldn’t think of wallowing in excrement, can contemplate the act of sodomy without throwing up. Satanic scales over all eyes it seems.
