Well, as I have been saying for the past several years now, the Catholic Church is going to be moving into the underground. Does anyone really believe that the Gay storm troopers are going to let faithful Catholic priests and bishops operate in public? This little showdown was won by the Church, but this is just the beginning and the future battles will not be so easily won. Now you know why the homosexualist movement wanted to soften up the cops with their “diversity” and “hate” education symposiums. Because when the Gay Stormtroopers bust down the Church during Holy Mass, the cops won’t do anything about it. Rest of story here.
Get ready, the fun has just begun.
And you can thank those generation of Catholics – bishops, priests, and flock – who refused to preach and follow Humanae Vitae. Their sin is going to cost us everything — at least those of us willing to stay Faithful to Jesus.
All the more reason why we need IgniteTV here in Canada. It’s gonna be a wild ride, folks. Get ready.
First + Piero Marini, now Fr. Lombardi. Very sad. The parsing of the moral law from the civil law is not a legitimate Catholic belief. These two men are introducing a kind of dualism and a false secularism. As Cardinal Burke explains…
If this is not the great age of Apostasy, I don’t know what is. Ask yourself why this civil union fraud is popular among the bishops and cardinals (even though many of them won’t say it).
There are two principal reasons:
1) They are homosexual.
2) They prefer not to offend over accepting the persecution that will come if they defend the Gospel.
That basically sums it up. Any bishop or cardinal advancing civil unions is, in my books, ripe for consideration for option number 1. In fact, they should be confronted and asked the question to their faces.
That if there is to be any hope that we will not merely be laughed at (as happened last month at the U.S. Supreme Court) when we point out the common sense truth that gay “marriage” cannot really be marriage because marriage and procreation go hand in hand, and gays cannot procreate, it will only be because we are joyfully welcoming children into our own marriages; or because we have not deliberately rendered our own marriages sterile through mutilation or contraception; or because we ourselves have rejected the use of technologies that violently wrench the process of procreation from its only rightful place within the beautiful act of marital intercourse and transplanted it into to a laboratory.
And if there is to be any hope of not merely appearing ridiculous when we say that true marriage is infinitely better than gay “marriage” for children because it gives them both their biological mother and father and is more stable, it will only be because we ourselves have done the hard work of building stable, faithful marriages; or because we ourselves have not voluntarily deprived our own children of either their mother or father.
And if we are not to be scoffed at when we say that sex is “sacred” and only properly expressed within the confines of a marriage between a man and a woman, it will be because we ourselves are living emblems of the joy of living chastely; because we ourselves have rejected promiscuity, pornography, and infidelity; and because our pastors preach and our churches teach that sex is sacred and have refused to compromise with the culture of divorce and promiscuity.
In other words, if there is going to be any hope of saving traditional marriage, then we will have to discontinue this charade, in which all of us are implicated to one degree or another, of accepting or indulging in our favorite portions of the Sexual Revolution, but then complaining bitterly when the revolution leads precisely to where it promised to lead.
We simply cannot convincingly stand guard over the citadel while at the same time plundering its spoils. No. If we are ever to see the restoration of a culture of true marriage, then we are going to have to start being consistent. And that starts with you, and me, today. (Source)
At the end of the day, it’s all about the Sacraments of Separation. Divorce and “Remarriage”, Adultery, Contraception, Sterlization, Abortion. You can’t defend marriage, if you don’t know what it really means. Deep inside the human consciousness, people can smell BS. If you don’t really believe in marriage as the Catholic Church defines the term (whether you are Catholic or not), it’s only a matter of time before every filth and depravity enters human civilization and starts to tear it down, one child at a time.
Don’t bother with the politics or the legalities of the issue. It’s a pipe dream to believe that people will practice what you preach when you preach something which is not really marriage, anyhow.
Only authentic witness and practice will change the culture. Only holiness and discipline. Everything else is bullkaka, and the other side knows it, too.
Our very tolerant society where Christians are now the new niggers, second-class citizens.
On the positive side, the “hopey changey, spirit of vatican II” clerics who currently run the show in Christendom will quit, retire early,or be pushed out. Either way, only those devoted to the truth…to the point of complete loss of status, position, material wealth, and even death…will preserve their salvation. It’s the price to pay for being lukewarm for the past 50 years.
Our future leaders will be lions. They will have no choice. And the current regime will be just a historical nightmare
“There is no more mileage in this issue for the Catholic Church,” the editorial continued, “and the sensible course would be to put it on the back burner with the heat turned low – to make peace with the gay world and move on.” (Source)
And you wonder why these kind of fraudulent “Catholic” publications continue to exist. Here’s a hint:
Just before the cardinal’s latest statement, a follow-up piece in last weekend’s Observer – the Sunday edition of the liberal Guardian – provided more details about the four men who came forward, one of whom said that while he “never wanted to ‘out’ Keith just for being gay… he has hurt others, probably worse, than he affected me. And that only became clear a few weeks ago.” (Source)
If something doesn’t look right and something doesn’t really make sense why it continues not to look right, don’t always assume the best intentions.
Former Bishop Lahey was also a “champion” of marriage too…just like Cardinal “Keith” was.
I have a few suspicions on who I think is Gay in the Canadian hierarchy too, but I can’t say anything unless I have hard proof.
I hope I never get that hard proof, because I’d hate to break it to you all that all that glitters is not gold.
“Archbishop Cordileone cautions against over-using the term ‘gay marriage’, advising that it should be used “only sparingly” because it is a natural impossibility and if we keep talking about gay marriage we might fool ourselves into thinking it is an authentic reality, which only needs government approval to make it legitimate…”
The fact that our society is even considering this impossibility shows the disastrous consequences of separating the procreative and unitive purposes of conjugal sex through contraception. The absurdity of contraceptive sex introduces the greater absurdity of pseudo-same-sex marriage.
