GUADALAJARA, Mexico, October 7, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Cardinal Archbishop of Guadalajara, Mexico, Juan Sandoval Iñiguez, gave a speech Sunday in which he lashed out at the United Nations and other international organizations that he says are running a campaign to destroy the family.
“The family is being permanently attacked,” said the cardinal at a meeting of the international Catholic relief organization, Caritas. “And the organizations that are in charge of rearranging the family are powerful organizations, beginning with the United Nations Organization, the World Bank, the Interamerican Bank, the big leftist parties in the world.”
The United Nations Organization, said the cardinal, has been promoting a new concept of “gender” since 1995. “Gender isn’t something like [the sex of a person], but rather a relationship, with whomever I interact sexually,” he added.
“If we so decide, for example, bestiality, well that would be another gender, doing it with animals, fetishism, where men get excited by feminine dress and live that way.”
Sandoval Iñiguez observed that the same organizations are also vigorously promoting the legalization of abortion in poorer countries, promoting the idea of “the right of the woman over her body, and it is propagated everywhere, and they have required governments, because they are in debt, they have required governments to accept abortion in their laws.”
The cardinal’s comments come in response to an increasingly intense campaign waged in recent months by Mexican pro-abortion and homosexualist groups, often funded and coordinated by foreign organizations and governments, to change Mexico’s laws on abortion and gay “marriage.”
For years, pro-life activists would recoil as certain high ranking Vatican officials would extol the benefits of the U.N. While these declarations were no doubt well-intentioned, pro-life activists would shake our heads at such declarations, and wonder just what were our leaders thinking?
After Planned Parenthood, the U.N. is the greatest organizational enemy of the unborn and the traditional family – and it has been for decades.
Finally, we have a high ranking cardinal doing what us lowly bloggers have been doing for years now — calling out the elephant in the room.
Did you catch what the Cardinal said about the whole gender ideology gig? I found that most interesting.
There`s a certain blogger that has been pointing to the growth in this gender ideology in the Canadian Church`s charity business too, but he`s been given the shaft by the current Canadian hierarchy.
Still, as the Lord says, “wisdom is vindicated by her works“ (Matthew 11:19).
