An extensive, well researched, open letter to Pope Francis re: Homosexuality in the Church and elsewhere

The Language of Gayspeak

When I first read your response to Scamparini (on the papal plane, coming back from Brazil – ed.) I must confess that my attention was not drawn immediately to the Ricca scandal, but rather to the fact that you used the term “gay” or “gay person” no less than five times.

On June 6, 2013, you allegedly made a private comment to the members of the Latin America Confederation of Men and Women Religious affirming the existence of a “gay lobby,” inside the Vatican, but the term was later reported with quotes. [2] Such was not the case this time round. I must assume that your unfortunate decision to use the politically correct language of gayspeakwas deliberate. In normal times this action might have been overlooked with a wink and a nod, but in wartimes it smells of treason and corruption.

The war of which I speak is the war being waged by faithful Catholics and other civilized men and women across the world against the forces of organized sexual perversion. These are the forces of the enemies of the cross of Christ “whose end” Blessed Paul the Apostle tells us “is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.” (Epistle. Philip. 3, 17-19). The Homosexual Collective, aka, La Lobby Gay, has long been aware that to control language is to control the way people think since we think in terms of words. The words we speak determine the thoughts we have. It is by controlling language, a form of Pavlovian conditioning, that the Collective seeks to change the dominant shape of reality.

Unlike the word, homosexual, or the more traditional term, sodomite, the word “gay” is used by the Collective and its sympathizers to denote a “consciously united resistance to homophobic and heterosexual deployments of power relations.” [3] It is the task of the Homosexual Collective to transform the homosexual or sodomite into a “gay” man, and to define, control and validate “authentic” homosexual identity and behavior and all other aspects of “gay” life.

“Homophobia” as Ideology

As a related aside, in recent public statements you have consistently condemned the substitution of “ideology” for true Faith going as far as to denounce “ideological Christians” who “simply recite the same prayers they’ve memorized,” (presumably this includes the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory Be, traditional prayers which we cradle Catholics learned at the knees of our parents and which are especially helpful at times of great crisis in our lives). Yet you seem totally oblivious to the use of ideology by the Homosexual Collective when it is presented right in front of your nose.

Case in point is your personal, hand written correspondence of June 2013 with the leadership of the Italian pro-homosexual group Kairos which is based in Florence.

In their initial letter to you, Kairos called for openness and dialogue, and noted that closure to discussion “always feeds homophobia.” [4] Although the official text of your correspondence has not been released, according to a Kairos spokesman, your letter contained a “benedictory greeting” or “blessing.” A second letter from the Vatican Secretariat of State confirmed that you “really enjoyed” the Kairos letter, despite the fact that it was filled with all manner of ideologies including that represented by the use of the word “homophobia.”

Like “gay,” the term “homophobia” is a construct and successful political catchword in the Homosexual Collective’s arsenal which has acquired a special function in the service of power.

Why would Pope Francis say in June that there is a “gay lobby” in the Vatican and then say a month later that although there had been “talk about the gay lobby,” he’s never seen it on “the Vatican ID card”?

question

Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis’s “Who am I to judge” dismissal of the depravity represented even by any kind of perverse inclinations or impulses or feelings speaks volumes as to his complete shallowness as a thinker, no less to the total theological bankruptcy that characterizes the words he utters that so tickle the itching ears of men steeped in the universal pestilence of sentimentality.

While God alone is the sole Judge of the subjective state of souls, He gave us the sensus fidei when we were baptized in order to be able to recognize sin for what it is and thus to amend our own lives when are tempted to sin or find ourselves in the near occasion of sin.

This sensus fidei also provides us with the ability to perform the Spiritual Works of Mercy, which includes, of course, admonishing the sinner.

It is very telling that, as noted a few days ago, Jorge Mario Bergoglio never talks about the Spiritual Works of Mercy. Never means precisely that, that Catholics believe in the Spiritual Works of Mercy, Jorge. Here is a little review for you:

To instruct the ignorant.
To counsel the doubtful.
To admonish sinners.
To bear wrongs patiently;
To forgive offences willingly;
To comfort the afflicted;
To pray for the living and the dead.

Catholics also believe that there are nine ways
that they can be accessories to the sins of others:

1. By counsel.
2. By command.
3. By consent.
4. By provocation.
5. By praise or flattery of the evil done.
6. By silence.
7. By connivance.
8. By partaking.
9. By defense of the ill done.

Editor’s note: This article comes from a site which maintains, among other things, that there have been no true popes since the 2nd Vatican Council. But even such a grave error does little or nothing to discredit the particular observations contained in the linked article – which, while somewhat disrespectful – are worthy of serious consideration by adult Catholics.

Pope Francis privately acknowledges existence of sinister “Lavender Mafia” within the Catholic Church

Pope Francis reportedly confirmed the existence of a “gay lobby” within the Roman Curia, in a candid conversation with visiting religious from Latin America.

During a meeting with representatives of the Latin American and Caribbean Confederation of Religious (CLAR), the Pope spoke frankly about the need for reform in the Church and particularly in the Vatican bureaucracy. A report on the Pope’s remarks, furnished by one of the CLAR representatives who spoke with the Pontiff, has appeared on a Chilean web site, Reflexion y Liberacion.

The Pope’s remarks, according to the CLAR correspondent, included an admission that “there is also a current of corruption” within the Roman Curia. “There is talk about a ‘gay lobby,’ and it’s true, that exists,” the Pope continued.
