Contraception Dividing Catholic Unity

Originally Posted on JUNE 29, 2009

….Before the children started practicing sexual contraception, however, the episcopacy had given into ecclesiastical contraception by separating themselves from Rome’s teaching. 40 years ago on September 27, 2008 in Winnipeg, the bishops of Canada let the snake into the Garden.  They dissented from Humanae Vitae. They believed the snake and disbelieved God.  They believed the lie which promised the children a false sexual utopia with all of the fun and none of the responsibilities.  We could now engage in contraception ”in good conscience”.  But just like consequences that befell our first parents in the Garden of Eden, the consequences of believing the devil and turning away from God on the subject of sexual intimacy have left us in a barren wasteland.  40 years after the rebellion, we’ve learned and seen what a massive fraud the Winnipeg Statement was.  

In these 40 years, the Snake of Winnipeg has slithered its way though the Church, leaving death and destruction in its wake.  It started first with marriages, then the relationship between parents and children.  As the fallout spread, the Canadian nation – which is, in its substance made up of families – started to erode and decline.  Because contraception was a comprehensive attack, it not only attacked the unity of marriage but the unity within the church, the mystical body of Christ.  As discussed above, the principal attack and separation of this unity occured between those consecrated to the Lord (bishops, priests) and the laity. 

But that’s not all.

You see, the Snake of Winnipeg is now making to its final journey right into the heart of Catholic episcopal unity.  It took 40  years, but just like same-sex “marriage”, it was all but inevitable once the Winnipeg Statement opened the door to contraception.  That snake, that murderer from the beginning, has now arrived and is presenting himself now in this whole D&P abortion scandal as the wedge between those bishops who support the Winnipeg Statement and those who do not.  Why do I say this? Because those bishops who support D&P are the same bishops who support the Winnipeg Statement with few, if any, exceptions.  That is not a coincidence.  D&P was established one year before the Winnipeg Statement was released.  And slowly, but surely, over the last 40 years, it has given shelter and promotion to what the Winnipeg Statement advocated.  Those who support the Winnipeg Statement are the same bishops who have accepted proportionalism.  And proportionalism is the same philosophical error now being used to justify partnering with D&P’s pro-abortion partners, not to mention the soft abortion policy of St. Joseph’s hospital in London, Ontario

Msgr. Foy has been warning the bishops and pleading with them for 40 years to turn backThe Rosarium has been doing likewise for the past 6 years.  They would not listen to us. They would not listen to Rome. They would not listen to Sacred Scripture or Sacred Tradition or 2000 years of Christian teaching. So now, 40 years later, the Snake of Winnipeg has come to take its rightful place in the middle of the Catholic episcopacy in this country.  It’s going to slither right up on its throne when the bishops of Canada meet again to discuss the D&P abortion scandal.  It will then show them just how divided they are.  

You can’t run forever.   Sooner or later, a price must be paid for dissent.  Just like no marriage can survive an adulterous affair without repentance, neither can a Church survive without repenting of its adultery and harlotry — its spiritual sodomy. Even to this day, the Canadian bishops are still in the state of ecclesiastical contraception from Rome.

And, in a short time, just like what has happened to the Canadian family, it’s about to tear them apart…. (Source)

They didn’t listen when I told them back in June.  I doubt they will listen now until the Church is completely ruined.  But here goes…one more time….

Contraception is the sacrament of mistrust and suspicision.  It has caused death and destruction these past forty years within the family.  And sooner or later, because contraception is first and foremost a spiritual withdrawl, the consequences of that mistrust will wind itself through the unity the Church possesses. 

Contraception separates us.  The homosexual child sex abuse scandal is separating the bishops from us and from one another.  They don’t know who they can trust – not even their own brother bishops.  

Condemn the Winnipeg Statement by name, your Graces.   May 13. In Ottawa. At the Pro-Life Mass.  Don’t miss the opportunity to do the right thing. Repent and turn back to God.

Your Grace,

I hope this email finds you in good health.  I thought you would find this report about  Development & Peace quite revealing:

You will note a few things:

1) D&P has admitted to funding a pro-contraceptive group.

2) D&P has admitted to funding a group which supports anti-life legislation which the Catholic Church in the Phillipines is fighting (see their letter below).

3) D&P mentions the Winnipeg Statement as a “nuance” for the implied legitimacy of contraception.

Your Grace, I offer you two observations:

1) I remind you of your promise to be faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Gospel of Life before any allegiance to any church bureaucracy.  This is especially true when that bureaucracy has clearly abandoned Catholic teaching, and even more so
considering its obstinate involvement in the advocacy for the destruction of human life.  I invite you to read this story and consider doing likewise:

2) The principle reason why the Church is undergoing all of these sex and abortion scandals comes down to one thing:  the rejection of Humanae Vitae and the refusal of the bishops to teach it.  This is the truth and it can no longer be dismissed or disregarded.
This is what we must admit.  Once again, I invite you, in your capacity as Archbishop of Ottawa, to do the right thing and condemn the Winnipeg Statement by name.

Administrative shuffles and procedures to stop sex abuse and pro-abort funding in the Third World is not enough. There must be a clear statement of repentance on the part of the Bishops regarding Humanae Vitae and their failure to teach it.

I believe that you will have a wonderful opportunity to do it at this year’s March for Life Mass.  Don’t wait for the other bishops to find a consensus.  That’s never going to happen in our lifetime. Speak in your capacity of as a Successor in your own right and
for Ottawa.  Be bold…and courageous. We’re right behind you if you do.

 1Then the LORD sent (A)Nathan to David And (B)he came to him and said,
         “There were two men in one city, the one rich and the other poor.
    2″The rich man had a great many flocks and herds.
    3″But the poor man had nothing except (C)one little ewe lamb
         Which he bought and nourished;
         And it grew up together with him and his children.
         It would eat of his bread and drink of his cup and lie in his bosom,
         And was like a daughter to him.
    4″Now a traveler came to the rich man,
         And he was unwilling to take from his own flock or his own herd,
         To prepare for the wayfarer who had come to him;
         Rather he took the poor man’s ewe lamb and prepared it for the man who had come
to him.”

 5Then David’s anger burned greatly against the man, and he said to Nathan, “As the LORD
lives, surely the man who has done this (D)deserves to die.

 6″He must make restitution for the lamb (E)fourfold, because he did this thing and had
no compassion.”

 7Nathan then said to David, “(F)You are the man! Thus says the LORD God of Israel,
‘(G)It is I who anointed you king over Israel and it is I who delivered you from the hand
of Saul. 2 Samuel 12

  1. I think it was only a couple of years ago when the CCCB released a pastoral letter to the faithful reaffirming the message of Pope Paul VI Encyclical, Humanae Vitae. I wonder why they didn’t just slip a line in condemning the Winnipeg Statement then and been done with it.

  2. Actually, Susan, that wouldn’t be good enough because the Winnipeg Statement isn’t merely some words on a piece of paper. It has permeated pastoral practices throughout the Church in Canada. The bishops need to revoke the Winnipeg Statement AND start undoing the damage by taking concrete measures in every parish in Canada to teach the Gospel of Life.
