Reid: Constitution? We don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution!

“Here is a bipartisan bill to create and save jobs,” the Democrat from Nevada said, noting it had required the input of four different committees. “Every state in the union is desperate for these dollars. But to show how the Republicans never lose an opportunity to mess up a good piece of legislation, listen to this: They’re talking about First Amendment rights, the Constitution.”

A reasoned and loving response to a supporter of homosexuality and homosexual marriage.

By Doug Lawrence

(In response to this article)

I happen to have been born with an absolutely dependable sense of direction that happens to be exactly 180 degrees out of phase. (No kidding. This is true!)

When I think I should go left, I invariably ought to go right, instead.

So, in order to get where I need to go, I’ve learned to overrule my natural inclinations, to get a second opinion, or use a compass and map, or GPS.

Needless to say, relying on the opinion of another who suffers from the same seriously disordered sense of direction might appear to work, but only for a short while, until both of us, naturally rejecting all opinions to the contrary, finally come to the realization that we are truly lost.

Homosexual people are in a similar quandary.

Their innate feelings tell them they are right, but the truth is unfortunately, 180 degrees removed.

And without a reliable guide (the Catholic Church) they may well be lost … for a long, long time … perhaps never reaching their intended destination.

True Christians understand this type of problem and attempt to deal with it, through love. Unfortunately, a personally frustrated individual typically responds poorly to such an approach, since he/she typically cannot fathom the true reasons for it.

Hence, love is “naturally” perceived as hate, helpfulness is taken for condemnation, and the will of God is presumed to be something other than what it truly is.

You Kristina, also have a faulty sense of direction. You have chosen your own set of defective guides, and you too, have arrived at the wrong destination.

But there’s still time to find the right path .. and stick to it … with the help of the church.

From the Catechism:

2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.

So go .. and sin no more. God loves you. God will provide. Trust in him.

A Baptist waxes eloquently on the matters of slavery and abortion

In these two great blights in our nation, a common pattern emerges. First, one group in power decides its needs are greater than the rights of others. The powerful thus dominate the powerless. In the 19th century it was the white slave owner dominating the black slave. In the next two centuries, it has been those who are born dominating the helpless unborn.

The rationale for the domination of a group of people is the needs of the dominant. For slave owners, it was economic need. For those who participate in abortions, it is a need for convenience. In order to justify this domination, the helpless are given new labels to dehumanize them. They are thus called slaves or the “n-word.” Or they are called tissue or fetuses. They must be identified as something less than human or the actions cannot be justified.

Finally, the dehumanization of a people becomes a right of another group. The right to hold men, women and children in the bondage of slavery is called owners’ rights and states’ rights. The right to kill the unborn is called reproductive rights.

Bishop Olmsted on Holy Matrimony

We have great need to rediscover the good news of God’s plan for marriage; and we need to resist in the public square all efforts to label this plan as a “hang up” of the past. Labeling homosexual “marriage” as “a right” is not an enlightened idea of the 21st century. It is a novel form of a resurrected falsehood from more than 2,000 years ago. It will not stand the test of time, just as it cannot withstand popular opinion now.

In every state in our nation where this issue has been put to a vote of the people (31 of the 50), traditional marriage has won. It is only some activist judges, exercising raw judicial power over and against the will of the people, who have pushed their agenda of so-called “homosexual marriage” on the people.

Have you signed on to the Manhattan Declaration yet?

“We are Christians who have joined together across historic lines of ecclesial differences to affirm our right — and, more importantly, to embrace our obligation — to speak and act in defense of these truths. We pledge to each other, and to our fellow believers, that no power on earth, be it cultural or political, will intimidate us into silence or acquiescence… We recognize the duty to comply with laws whether we happen to like them or not, unless the laws are gravely unjust or require those subject to them to do something unjust or otherwise immoral… We will not comply with any edict that purports to compel our institutions to participate in abortions, embryo-destructive research, assisted suicide and euthanasia or any other anti-life act; nor will we bend to any rule purporting to force us to bless immoral sexual partnerships, treat them as marriage or the equivalent or refrain from proclaiming the truth, as we know it, about morality and immorality and marriage and the family.”

A quick Summary (PDF)

Enough of the homosexual nonsense, already!

Promoters of homosexual rights now claim that the Catholic priest/child-abuse scandal has totally discredited both the Catholic priesthood and the Church, but at the same time, they (falsely) deny that the majority of the priests involved in the scandal were themselves, homosexual.

All this is just more proof that homosexuality is and has always been extremely corrosive to the fabric of society. ANY society!

When the late ‘60’s, post-Vatican II Catholic Church relaxed the standards for seminarians (and permitted homosexuals to run those seminaries) the seeds of destruction were sown.

The result was a virtual collapse of traditional Catholic orthodoxy, chaos in catechesis, widespread birth control, abortion, divorce and other forms of sexual immorality.

If you liked watching all the psychological and financial pain that was part and parcel of the priest/child-abuse scandal, just wait and see what happens to the U.S. military, if the homosexuals get their way!

Anyone who understands the homosexual mindset knows that everything must always be all about them and about what they so desperately want, no matter the consequences … and if prompt and total public approval of their perverted lifestyle choices is not immediately forthcoming, there’s no end to the tantrums.

Politicians, artists, Hollywood types, writers and teachers are particularly afflicted with the homosexual disorder, and even if “straight”, they remain extraordinarily amenable, sensitive and vulnerable to homosexual demands, so it’s up to the rest of us to stand up for the truth.

If history proves one thing, it’s that no society whose fabric has been torn apart by homosexual lies, perversions and outright fabrications, can properly function for very long.

Any expansion of homosexual rights is a slippery slope that can only lead to Hell. And you won’t necessarily have to die to go there, since if the homosexuals have their way, we will soon have our very own version of Hell, right here on earth.

That’s the type of misery active homosexuals choose to deal with every single day, and that’s precisely what they want for you and your children.

In their eyes, it’s only fair!

For a comprehensive report on this matter, including all the authentic facts and figures, as opposed to the fanciful exaggerations and lies that have been spread so often and for so long by homosexuals and their allies in the homosexual-friendly media, go here.

The twisted “logic” behind Roe v. Wade and abortion “rights”

An understanding of the deeply flawed thinking that created this travesty, I think, is essential for pro-life Americans to convince a majority of their brothers and sisters of the incoherence of supporting abortion as well as its innate injustice. The “right” to legal abortion was advocated behind the smokescreen of a “right to privacy.” Yet one of the most striking things about the “right to privacy” is that no one has a clear idea of what it is. Is this “right” absolute? Surely it cannot be. It would be unreasonable to assert that immoral acts—especially murder—should be legally permitted, or even advocated, so long as they are done in private.
