Pope Francis Sends “Blessing” to Publisher of Homosexual-Friendly Books for Children
By John Vennari
August 28: Pope Francis sent an encouraging letter to lesbian founder of publishing house for children’s books.
Today’s Il Giornale reports, “The Pope blesses gender ideology books. To the author he writes: “Go ahead.”
The report continues, “Pope Francis still amazes, writing a long letter to the author of the books that the mayor of Venice, Luigi Brugnaro, wanted to ban from its schools. After the Synod on the family that threatens to split the church, the Pope again lines up in defense of the same-sex couples.”
Francesca Pardi, founder with her partner Maria Silvia Fiengo of the publishing house for childrens’ books, The Block letters, is the author of books such as Little Egg, Little Story of a family: Why you have two mothers? and “What is the secret of Dad?
Pardi received a positive letter from Francis’ Vatican signed by Msgr. Peter Wells of the Vatican Secretary of State, who on behalf of the Pope, urged her “go ahead on her pathway.”
Pardi celebrates her response from Pope Francis on her Facebook page, where she displays a photo of the Vatican envelope.
Il Giornale describes the Vatican letter as “A new episode in which Bergoglio seems to break the tradition of the Church and to side instead with the ‘modernity’.”
In June, Pardi had an entire catalogue of her books sent to the Pope, hoping he could read them.
Pardi wrote in her letter to Francis, “You won’t find, in these pages any faintest sign of the gender theory that these books are said to be the main instrument: where do we tell children that they can choose their own gender? where do we talk to them about sex?”
Yet Pardi and Fiengo follow the tactics of homosexual strategists Marshal K. Kirk and Erastes Pill who in their landmark 1987 article “The Overhauling of Straight America,” urged the necessity to “Talk About Gays and Gayness as Loudly and as Often as Possible.”
“The principle behind this advice is simple”, say Kirk and Pill, “almost any behavior begins to look normal if you are exposed to enough of it at close quarters and among your acquaintances. The acceptability of the new behavior will ultimately hinge on the number of one’s fellows doing it or accepting it.”
A person may be offended initially by the novelty of it all, but as Kirk and Pill point out “as long as Joe-Six-pack feels little pressure to perform likewise, and as long as the behavior in question presents little threat to his physical and financial security, he soon gets used to it and life goes on.” As time goes on, Joe-Six pack and his friends will become more tolerant of homosexuality as no more than an alternative, legitimate way of life.
This is the strategy of telling the story of homosexual families to small children, especially when these books are introduced in children’s schools. It means equalizing, in the educational period, the traditional family with the homosexual couples.
Homosexuals do not reproduce. They must recruit, and they seek to recruit and proselytize our children.
Francis’ Vatican appears ignorant (or worse, approving) of the moral confusion such books inflict on our little ones. While the books may not explicitly propose “gender theory,” they certainly indoctrinate children to accept homosexual families and the homosexual lifestyle.
Once again, the Vatican Press Office leapt into Francis-damage control.
“In no way does the letter from the Secretariate of State mean to endorse behavior and teachings not in line with the Gospel,” the Vatican press office said on Friday.
In the letter of response Monsignor Peter B. Wells wrote that “His Holiness is grateful for the delicate gesture and for the sentiments that I have suggested,” and “calls for a more profitable activity in the service of the young generations and the spread of authentic human values and Christians’, imparting the apostolic blessing.”
Francis’ Vatican seems blind to the contradiction of sending the author of homosexual books encouragement to “go ahead,” along with an exhortation to spread authentic human and Christian values. Here again we see the modernist confusion: what is affirmed in one place is denied in another.
The press office claimed the letter to Francesca Pardi, in response to a letter from her to the Pope after Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro banned ‘gay’ books from the city’s schools, was meant to remain private, something which “unfortunately did not happen.”
Il Giornale, however, notes that Pardi received a warm, encouraging letter from Francis’ Vatican. Yet the Mayor of Venice who banned these books, received no such letter of congratulations.
Mayor Brugnaro, Il Giornale notes, is “too much in line with Tradition.”
The Message of Fatima; “Pray a great deal for the Holy Father”
