DUBLIN, August 23, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – An English family doctor has suggested that recent developments in the war against the family coming from the highest levels within the Catholic Church indicate the arrival of the final battle between God and Satan.
“Is this the final greatest historical confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, the Gospel and the anti-gospel,” said Dr Thomas Ward at a family conference this week running concurrent to the Vatican’s LGBT-affirming World Meeting of Families (WMOF) in Dublin, Ireland.
“Frankly, are we at this moment seeing an intent at a Vatican revolution which would be a culmination and fulfillment of all three previous revolutions [French (1789), Communist (1848), and sexual (1968)]?” he added.
Ward looked for evidence of a current “Vatican revolution” against the family among examples of how top leaders within the Church, including Pope Francis and many cardinals, have essentially caved in on perennial Catholic teaching about “marriage, contraception, abortion, homosexualism, and parental rights.”
Ward, president of the National Association of Catholic Families, detailed the history of the revolution against the family and God’s plan for human sexuality in an address he gave to the Conference of Catholic Families this week in Dublin. Well over 400 gathered in Dublin for the two-day conference (August 22-23) that was live streamed. It featured several leading voices of Catholic orthodoxy, including Cardinal Raymond Burke (video address), Fr. Thomas Weinandy, Dr. Robert Royal, Dr. Gerard van den Aardweg, LifeSiteNews' John-Henry Westen, John Smeaton, Edward Pentin, Bishop Athanasius Schneider (video address), and others.
