“[The vice of sodomy] mobilizes him in the militia of the evil spirit and force him to fight unspeakable wars against God . She detaches the unhappy soul from the company of the angels and , depriving it of it excellence, take it captive under her domineering yoke” (...)Once this poisonous serpent has sunk its fangs into this unfortunate man, he is deprived of all moral sense, his memory fails , and the mind's vision is darkened. Unmindful of God , he also forgets his own identity. St. Peter Damian -Liber Gomorrhianus ad Leonem IX Romanum Pontificem
The Francis effect: LGBT-promoting bishops come out publicly
Fourteen U.S. bishops, one of them a cardinal, have added their names to a public statement in support of young people who identify as LGBT.
June 16, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — June is the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, but our radically anti-Christian culture has dubbed it “Pride Month.” A month to take pride in an activity, not in persons. It’s not pride about love, it’s pride about sexual activity. It is pride in replacing God-ordained marriage between one man and one woman with a counterfeit. Listen, no one is condemning loving relationships between two men or two women. When it turns sexual — that’s what this is all about. God has only approved of one exercise of the sexual powers, namely inside the marital union.
So why are Catholics focusing on homosexuality right now and not on masturbation or polygamy or bestiality? Um, it’s not us. The culture is pushing “pride” month, the culture is ramming this down the throats of children, not even respecting religious freedom.
So in this episode we’re going to take a look at the latest insanity going on in America and the church around homosexuality. We’ve got a list for you of the most homosexuality-promoting bishops in America — one of them caught on video doing a “pride” blessing — Joe Biden’s latest moves to push the LGBT agenda across the globe, and children’s shows selling it to toddlers. We’re also featuring the best prelates and laity standing up to fight for the truth despite the cost.
In the last decade we have gone a long way toward total societal rejection of marriage as God ordained it. Homosexual so-called “marriage” is legal in most of the world, and in the U.S. 70% now support homosexual “marriage,” according to the latest poll.
President Joe Biden, who claims to be Catholic, formally recognized LGBTQ “Pride Month.” The Biden proclamation dared to mention Our Lord in the traditional manner of giving the date while at the same time encouraging Americans to celebrate sin: After telling Americans to “wave their flags of pride high” proclaiming June LGBTQ “Pride Month,” Biden used the traditional rendering of the date as “this first day of June, in the year of or Lord two thousand twenty-one.”
In a fact sheet for “Pride Month” put out by the Biden administration, they note that they have been pushing homosexuality around the world, also ensuring U.S. embassies around the world were flying the “Pride” flag.
And this new Biden diktat spared no exceptions, apparently including the U.S. embassy at the Vatican.
Tweeting a photo of the “Pride” flag hanging from the balcony of its building in Rome, the representative of the U.S. Embassy to the Vatican wrote, “The U.S. Embassy to the Holy See celebrates #PrideMonth with the Pride flag on display during the month of June. The United States respects the dignity and equality of LGBTQI+ people. LGBTQI+ rights are human rights.”
And what comes of such huge government pressure to promote the LGBT agenda? The pushing of it on children. There are at least 13 children’s TV shows pushing the LGBT agenda on children.
Homosexual activist group GLAAD has spent years lobbying Hollywood studios to increase the representation of LGBTQ characters in various programing. The major TV networks, including Nickelodeon, PBS, Cartoon Network, and others, have joined that effort. Now nearly every TV series, animated or live-action, has added gay characters. The 13 TV shows and characters pushing the LGBTQ agenda include:
ScoobyDoo (Warner Bros/Cartoon Network)
She-Ra and the Princess of Power (Dreamworks Animation)
Spongebob Squarepants (Nickelodeon)
My Little Pony (Discovery Family)
Adventure Time (Cartoon Network)
Andi Mack (Disney Channel)
The Loud House (Nickelodeon)
Clarence (Cartoon Network)
Steven Universe (Cartoon Network)
Blue’s Clues (Nickelodeon)
Star vs the Forces of Evil (Disney XD)
And we’re not talking about just a subtle promotion with characters in the background. Have a look at the classic children’s cartoon Blue’s Clues featuring a drag queen “Pride parade” sing-along.
That show featured Nina West, a popular drag queen in the role of the cartoon drag queen leading all the other ‘queer’ animals in song. “This family has two mommies. They love each other so proudly and they all go marching in ... the ... big parade,” the lyrics go.
The “Blues Clues” creators took pains with this one, every variation of queer flag is represented and paraded around by little animals. A hijab-wearing owl is shown proudly waving the rainbow flag.
If you look closely you’ll notice the Black Lives Matter power fist symbol depicted on the microphone of the drag queen character.
And it’s not only children’s TV shows that are targeting your children with the LGBT agenda. Children’s cereals in the grocery store are in on it too. In an article on LifeSite by Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, you’ll learn that Kellogg’s has a special cereal box out for “Pride Month” called ‘Together with Pride.” The cereal is made of rainbow, heart-shaped pieces, tastes like fruit and is covered in edible glitter. Kelloggs is donating $3 from every box purchased to the extreme LGBT group GLAAD which is out to recruit and confuse your children.
But in reality, how can you blame the secular culture for doing what they are doing when the Church has allowed the confusion and even encouraged it? From Pope Francis on down, in the last eight years there has been utter confusion on the teaching of the Church on these matters. From Pope Francis’ ‘who am I to judge’ to his recent comments on video supportive of homosexual civil unions — he has left confusion. His support last week for German Cardinal Reinhard Marx is another example. The Pope refused to accept Marx’s resignation last week despite the fact that Cardinal Marx led the way on the German church blessing homosexual unions in direct contravention to the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith saying that could never be done.
And have a look at the damage that this confusion unleashes. Just this month, the U.S.A.’s best-known homosexuality-promoting priest Fr. James Martin, the same Fr. Martin asked by the Pope to sit as a consultor on the Vatican Council for Social Communications, the same Fr. Martin whom the Pope asked to speak at the Vatican’s World Meeting of Families, the same Fr. Martin that the Pope met with in a private audience with photos and videos so all the world could see, encouraged Catholics to celebrate homosexual “Pride” month.
And if that’s not bad enough, watch this sitting U.S. bishop give a homosexual blessing. Lexington, Kentucky, Bishop John Stowe joined a virtual “Pride Blessing” event in early June. The event was hosted by the heretical pro-LGBT organization Dignity USA.
Unfortunately, Bishop Stowe is only the tip of the iceberg. And I hate to say it, but one of the best things about Pope Francis is that dissidents in the Church are outing themselves. Those who under Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI remained quiet and hidden are now out of the closet with their LGBT support. Fourteen U.S. Catholic bishops, one of them a cardinal, have added their names to a public statement in partnership with a pro-homosexual advocacy group — the Tyler Clementi Foundation — in support of young people identifying themselves as LGBT, telling them that “God is on your side.” It is actually a gift to be able to know who these bishops are that betray the faith, and so here is the list:
Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin — Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey
Archbishop John C. Wester — Archbishop of Santa Fe, New Mexico
Bishop Steven Biegler — Bishop of Cheyenne, Wyoming
Bishop Robert McElroy — Bishop of San Diego, California
Bishop John P. Dolan — Auxiliary Bishop of San Diego, California
Bishop Joseph R. Kopacz — Bishop of Jackson, Mississippi
Someone who lived practicing the vice of sodomy will suffer more pains in Hell than any one else, because this is the worst sin that there is.”
