(Rome) A scandal beyond compare took place on June 6 at TV2000, the television station of the Italian Bishops’ Conference CEI. During the broadcast “Il diario di Papa Francesco” (The Diary of Pope Francis) a “Christian LGBT” appeared as a guest. The inappropriate label, which wants to suggest a reconciliation of Christianity and homosexuality, was used for the first time in early May in Avvenire, the daily newspaper of the Italian Bishops’ Conference. “The concept of choice is as incorrect as if the newspaper of the bishops were written by Christian abortionists'” said Nuova Bussola Quotidiana (NBQ). “The concept of choice is an indicator of the great doctrinal and existential confusion in the Church.”
TV2000 promotes homosexuality and refers to “Amoris laetitia”
Three self-proclaimed Catholics of the group “Ponti sospesi” (Suspension Bridges) were invited into the studio. The group includes homosexuals who claim to be Christian, but want to live in open contradiction to the Christian faith. It’s a contradiction that some Church circles obviously want to overcome by changing the Doctrine of the Faith. The group works closely with several of the “historic” Protestant churches in Italy, like the Evangelical Lutheran Church and the Waldensians (Calvinists).
The figure responsible for the media of the Italian Episcopal Conference (CEI) is none other than Bishop Nunzio Galatino, the Secretary-General appointed by Pope Francis to CEI and close confidant of the Pope. The “Christian LGBT” not only feels attracted to persons of the same sex, but are practicing homosexuals and make the claim that the Church has to adapt their lifestyle, since “Love is Love”.
“God does everything” – embezzlement of Church teaching
Among the guests were also a nun were without religious habit and a priest, both “convinced” of the fact that God, “because he loves us”, accepts all that people do. In this blithe manner, homosexuality was declared “acceptable” on the television channel of the Catholic bishops of Italy in just 20 minutes. The change in direction of 180 degrees was justified by the Apostolic Letter Amoris laetitia of Pope Francis. For this purpose, paragraph 250 was quoted as saying: “to ensssure a respectful assistance, so that those who show homosexual tendency can get the necessary help in order to understand the will of God in their lives and to fulfill it completely.”
Not a word of the Church’s teaching was mentioned, what is the will of God when it comes to homosexuality, which is referred to in Scripture as “blatant sin.” Some theologians go so far as to say that because of the choice of words of Scripture that it is the worse among the deadly sins in God’s eyes, because it is a direct attack against the divine order that God’s nature is based.
Colleen Bayer defends Catholic doctrine and criticized Cardinal Schönborn
While the television station of the bishops courted homosexuality, embezzling Church doctrine to accomplish this, and the resulting darkening existential drama, there rose simultaneously in Rome a courageous voice in defense of doctrine, which is entrusted to the Church by revelation and taught by it for 2000 years, Colleen Bayer, Chair of Family Life International from New Zealand said in a lecture at the same time on June 6, which is used as video recording on the Internet, some episodes that have to do with the gender ideology and homosexuality.
Bayer began with a critique of Vienna’s Archbishop Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, who presented Amoris laetitia presented on April 8, to the world public. This had been a “huge mistake” of Cardinal, to speak of “positive elements” in the context of homosexuality. This erroneous view had been aired by the Cardinal already in an interview with the Jesuit magazine Civilta Cattolic in 2015 when he said: “It is not for the Church to look in the bedroom in the first place, but in the dining room.” Such arbitrary and unrealistic statements were “rubbish , pure trash,” said Bayer. “A priest friend of ours lost his life because of what happened in the bedroom. Please pray for his soul.”
Existential Drama – gay orgies among Roman seminarians
The woman then told the story of a young Anglican who converted to Catholicism in Rome entered a seminary after he told his superiors about his concerns and efforts, what his interpersonal relationships were, and that he was concerned because he felt attracted to men. Nevertheless, he was ordained a priest and sent to New Zealand five years of the priesthood where he was unable to overcome his mental turmoil and his desires.
At that time, the priest learned of the Bayer couple, confided in them and asked for their help.
“He told us, ‘You do not know what we have done in Rome on Friday night. We met … ‘, and they did do what homosexuals do. “On this occasion,” he revealed to us the Roman parties on Friday evening with other seminarians “who” ended in homosexual orgies.”
At this moment you have the revelation “almost a broken heart,” said Bayer. “Until then, I thought that we all worship God in the Church under the dome of Rome, and a trip to Rome is a journey home. To learn that such things happen in the seminaries of this city … ”
The young, desperate priest revealed “the devastation, the dirt and things that have happened that are terrible …” Bayer then inquired of those responsible who take such psychically torn people into the seminaries, and described the fears of the young convert and Priest of the inner contradiction of his life which eventually led to suicide.
“How in God’s name could such a thing happen under the dome of Rome? So how can a Cardinal of Rome maintain something like this?”
People with a homosexual inclination have an identity problem, which could be an existential drama for them. They must be helped to find their identity. They should not be encouraged to fall into a perversity.
Existential Drama – Violent lesbian relationship
Bayer reported then about a pregnant girl who was abused by her feminist, pro-abortion “fiance”. The sexual relationship between the two women had been violent and possessive: “When I saw the body of Jackie, my heart wept. She was covered with scars and fresh cuts and other injuries. Terrible violence was done to her in her life in a terrible manner.”
That was not done independently of the sex of the partner.
Bayer came to the conclusion that the doctrine entrusted by Christ to the Church that warns against homosexuality and rejects this, is more human, honest and compassionate than any arbitrary, ideological or some stirred up worldly sauce, which is passed off as an alleged “love of God.” It is enough to read Luca Di Tolve, who after his conversion and a Christian psychotherapy, finally found his true destination in love for a woman.
In his book “I was gay. I Found Myself in Medjugorje”, Di Tolve described the compulsive drive for satisfaction, but unfulfilling nature of homosexual relationships, the drifting into despair: “The deep motivation that drives homosexual behavior is always the same: the search for the male traits, which can not be expressed in one’s self. “His own sex could not unfold properly in himself for some reason.. Homosexuals, therefore, have a broken nature. “A man and a woman seen in the difference how much they complement each other to form the foundation of a family, a whole. Two men or two women can never reach this supplement and perfection. A mature man and a mature woman do not remain at the level of a mere impulse for satisfaction like immature teenagers who don’t grow up.
Christ and the Church Denounce Every Lie, to combat delusions
“Therefore,” said Di Tolve, “I could never find peace in sex with men.” He found the strength to seek a way out, and went in search of masculinity in itself, rather than seek his own in other ,”So I found my identity. With my identity and therefore with myself at peace, I was able to leave homosexuality behind me and I finally engage in the opposite sex and got to know my wife.”
“Christ and the Church have a great heart’s desire,” says Bayer, “that every lie, the delusions, are fought with courage and strength.”
It seems that the current penetration of homosexuality in the Church, has penetrated through fifth columns and weak resistance, has shown to be true what the Blessed Mother said in 1995 in Civitavecchia, where a statue of Mary cries blood. The phenomenon is maintained by the competent Bishop Girolamo Grillo for real. An official decision by the Catholic Church is still outstanding. The Mother of God had said at the time:
“My children, the darkness of Satan has darkened the world and also darkens the Church of God. In Rome, the darkness sets more and more about the rock that my son Jesus left to build up his children, to educate and to grow spiritually. “
Given the apostasy, says Bayer, “one has to be conscious of the claws of Satan and seek God’s hands and hold them” so that God “can us lead out of the swamp” by “men and women of God” and by “orthodoxy”.
