Upcoming Synod in Rome on Family Needs to Affirm Marriage

Story here.

This is very disturbing.  I’m waiting to see what comes out of the October Synod before saying something I regret.

It will be very interesting to see what happens.  I hope it does not drive a bigger wedge between doctrine and practice, but I fear that is what is going to happen.

If things go awry (and they can), it will be incumbent on lay Catholics to raise our voices to stop this madness and call the Church to repentance.

 

UPDATE:

ROME — Those who are in irregular marital situations cannot receive Holy Communion but are still Christian faithful and “must feel at home” in Catholic churches, a leading Italian bishop has said. Bishop Nunzio Galantino of Cassano all’Jonio told a national liturgical gathering of the Center of Liturgical Action Aug. 27 in Orvieto, Italy, that Holy Communion is “the sacramental act that excellently expresses the union with Christ and the Church.” The bishop, who serves as secretary general of the Italian bishops’ conference, noted Catholic teaching that those in “an irregular marital situation” cannot receive Holy Communion “because of their condition.”

  1. ++Galantino said:

    “some Catholics look at people in irregular relationships “with a glance full of prejudice, as if their faith and their belonging to the Church was compromised.”

    I get what he’s saying, but I think that the faith and belonging of these people really is compromised. After all, they’re deliberately choosing to live in mortal sin. They’re not excommunicated, but they’ve chosen a lifestyle that removes them from full communion with the Church, right?
    Haven’t they chosen a human relationship over a divine relationship?

    Certainly we must love them, but are we to pretend that there isn’t a major problem?

  2. If we are able according to our Master,who is not Muhammad,Justin Trudeau, Tom Mulcair, Stephen Harper, Homosexual activist John Baird, or The CBC etc.,to take the hypocritical log out of our own eye,then we ought to be able to judge righteously to take the speck out of our brother or sister or clergy’s or our homosexual politicians eye in Democratic Canada and The West where Democracy rules. Where citizens allow a minority of less than 2% to normalize perversion ti all impressional

    • Conclusion to the above comment.Where Western Democratic citizens now allow a minority of less tan 2% to normalize their perversions, to all impressionable innocent schoolchildren,as a legalized human right. Heterosexuals reproduce,but homosexual activists are now given the right to recruit schoolchildren from Kindergarten on. In a democracy the majority rules,and are responsible for this Political Rot,by their democratic complaisance.

  3. Homosexual Manifesto:This essay was first printed in The February 15,1987 issue of The Homosexual etc.,Newspaper,Gay Community News,by Michael Swift. First given to me by a concerned female parent.I was shocked at what was being taught as Kinsey Sex Education,and The Homosexual Agenda.

    THIS ESSAY is outre, madness, a tragic, cruel fantasy, an eruption of inner rage, on how the oppressed desperately dream of being the oppressor.

    We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of you 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.

    Women, you cry for freedom. You say you are no longer satisfied with men; they make you unhappy. We, connoisseurs of the masculine face, the masculine physique, shall take your men from you then. We will amuse them; we will instruct them; we will embrace them when they weep. Women, you say you wish to live with each other instead of with men. Then go and be with each other. We shall give your men pleasures they have never known because we are foremost men too and only man knows how to truly please another man; only one man can understand with depth and feeling the mind and body of another man.

    All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men.

    All homosexuals must stand together as brothers; we must be united artistically, philosophically, socially, politically, and financially. We will triumph only when we present a common face to the vicious heterosexual enemy.

    If you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer, at us, we will stab you in your cowardly hearts and defile your dead, puny bodies.

    We shall write poems of the love between men; we shall stage plays in which man openly caresses man; we shall make films about the love between heroic men which will replace the cheap, superficial, sentimental, insipid, juvenile, heterosexual infatuations presently dominating your cinema screens. We shall sculpt statues of beautiful young men, of bold athletes which will be placed in your parks, your squares, your plazas. The museums of the world will be filled only with paintings of graceful, naked lads.

    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 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 sleeping in the same bed with you.

    There will be no compromises. We are not middle-class weaklings. Highly intelligent, we are the natural aristocrats of the human race, and steely-minded aristocrats never settle for less. Those who oppose us will be exiled.

    We shall raise vast, private armies, as Mishima did, to defeat you. We shall conquer the world because warriors inspired by and banded together by homosexual love and honor are as invincible as were the ancient Greek soldiers. The family unit — spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy, and violence — will be abolished. The family unit, which only dampens imagination and curbs free will, must be eliminated. Perfect boys will be conceived and grown in the genetic laboratory. They will be bonded together in a communal setting, under the control and instruction of homosexual savants.

    All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men. We adhere to a cult of beauty, moral and aesthetic. All that is ugly and vulgar and banal will be annihilated. Since we are alienated from middle-class heterosexual conventions, we are free to live our lives according to the dictates of the pure imagination. For us too much is not enough.

    The exquisite society to emerge will be governed by an elite comprised of gay poets. One of the major requirements for a position of power in the new society of homoeroticism will be indulgence in the Greek passion. Any man contaminated with heterosexual lust will be automatically barred from a position of influence. All males who insist on remaining stupidly heterosexual will be tried in homosexual courts of justice and will become invisible men.

    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!

  4. First morbid Sodomy was legalized in so-called morally “neutral” Secular Pagan Democratic Canada,and the rest of Western Civilization Politically and Legally followed suit since the early 1960′s when The Lord’s Prayer, and The Ten Commandments were politically and legally considered unconstitutional in Government,Law and Education,and The New State Sanctioned Worldview/Religion of so-called “neutral” Secular Paganism constitutional and Politically Correct , then abortion on demand, no fault divorce and homosexual marriage etc., were legalized.

    The so-called neutral “Secular” Pagan Canadian Human Rights Act now considered these legalized behaviors to be human rights. This was the plan all along of the majority homosexual activists, educators and their political,legal, and media friends, The C B C and Western Media Moguls etc. These extremely unhealthy lifestyles are normalized in Democratic so-called “neutral” Secular Pagan Canada Politically to innocent,impressionable schoolchildren as Secular human rights and social justices,by adults who used to know better.

    The so-called “neutral” Secular Pagan argument goes, “some Kindergarteners may be born homosexual etc. ,so then Canadians ought to condition,reinforce by nurture the rest in schools by adult school teachers,and homosexual activists etc., to believe these to be normal behaviors, as well.” This is how “neutral” Secular Pagan Canada and Western Civilization are indoctrinating schoolchildren today.

    Now elected so-called “neutral” secular politicians are raising the flags of Sodom and Gomorrah over so-called “neutral” Secular Pagan Democratic City Halls etc, and marching in parades glorifying morbid behaviors,thus influencing future generations of impressionable children .The democratic voting public ought to be outraged at this,don’t you think? Political Apathy and Indifference on this issue is diabolical,my fellow Canadian Parents. “Leave the innocent impressionable school children alone”,and stop indoctrinating them into believing unhealthy behavior is normal.

    Canada,USA, Europe fought Two World Wars as Christian Countries,where school teachers led their students in ,The Lord’s Prayer,and The Ten Commandments were on Government,School,and Courthouse Walls ,and in the majorities hearts and minds. Criminality was not this rampant either. This is not Rocket Science,but common sense,which the majority then knew and reinforced , in objective Democratic Benevolent Christian Canada in Government,Law and Education.Today’s generations are indoctrinated by schools into believing the New State Sanctioned worldview/religion of secular paganism, much better.

    Political organization is required to oust democratically, these morally corrupt politicians who form rotten policies that indoctrinate impressionable children to be lured into accepting morbid behaviors,as normal alternatives. Heterosexuals reproduce,homosexuals who are less than 2% of the population now legally recruit innocent children in Canada’s and Western Civilization Secular Pagan schools with adult teachers,as so called legalized “neutral” Secular Pagan human rights.
