Nancy Pelosi says homosexuality is ‘consistent’ with Catholicism. Are Church leaders [including the Pope] taking her lead?

[Who has said “Who am I to judge?”, welcomed sodomitic couples (including one with a transgendered partner), and appoints/demotes cardinals, bishops and other important/influential church personnel?]

WARNING: This article begins with a graphic clinical statement because all Catholics need to know the truth and not remain oblivious to it.

June 22, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — When a man and a woman make love, the miracles of conception and birth are possible. When two men attempt the same, the most glorious result possible is an anal discharge of semen mixed with fecal matter.

Despite the striking contrast, high-profile Catholics in positions of power and influence in North America are no longer able to detect any important difference between the two. They not only accept being ‘gay’ as fully normal, they promote ‘same-sex marriage,’ a.k.a., anti-conjugal, anti-complementary, genderless marriage, as fully equal to marriage between a man and a woman.

You already know many of their names: Catholic Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, for whom ‘gay’ marriage is a ‘core principle;’ Catholic U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, who invented a national right for genderless marriage; Catholic former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, who has performed genderless marriages; Catholic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who asserts same-sex “marriage” is perfectly “consistent” with Catholicism; Catholic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Catholic Virginia Senator and 2016 Hillary Clinton running mate Tim Kaine and many others who energetically advocate for homonormativity.

At the same time, these Catholic VIPs are becoming increasingly incapable of discerning the difference between male and female and the significance of complementarity. They now promote transnormativity.

Clearly, something is awry with prevailing views of marriage and human dignity among our Catholic elites when sodomy constitutes marital consummation and genitalia is no longer indicative of gender.

The fact that they continue to enjoy full communion with the Church despite broadcasting lies which defy natural law and deny the Gospel has only served to embolden them and invite others to follow their lead.

The minds of leading Catholics have sunk from dullness, to darkness, to depravity, and they are intent on dragging each of us down with them – by force of law, if necessary – and if not us, our children.

The bigger picture Is worse. Much worse

Put aside the world of North American Catholic political and societal elites for a moment. A far more grave threat stares us in the face.

What will happen when a critical mass of the Church’s prelates and clerics similarly untether themselves from truth? What will happen when they find the ways of the world more attractive than the message of the Gospel, trading the Church’s magnificent magisterium for the whim of popular culture?

We are about to find out.

Nudging away from truth, nullifying the work of the Holy Spirit

Some high profile priests and bishops seem to be drawn to promoting the worldly empty promises Catholics reject at baptism: Fr. James Martin, SJ, editor-at-large for the Jesuit magazine America, recently appointed to the Vatican as a communications consultant; Joseph Cardinal Tobin, C.Ss.R., Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey; Bishop John Stowe of the Diocese of Lexington in Kentucky; Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, now at the helm of the Pontifical Academy for Life and the Pontifical Pope John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family.

While the Vatican seems to be collecting and promoting pro-homosexualists and transgenderists, the nudge toward accepting these strange humanity-deforming ideologies is palpable here at home in North America.

Just recently, the Diocese of San Diego announced that Fr. John Dolan, a priest with an LGBT-positive record, has been appointed by the Vatican to be an auxiliary bishop.

In the Archdiocese of Baltimore, St. Matthew’s Parish has been promoting homosexuality and its compatibility with Catholicism for years.

In the Archdiocese of New York, Blessed Sacrament Church announced that its “Gay Fellowship” group partnered with Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way Foundation” to hold a fundraising dance in the parish hall on June 17.

Even the Jesuit Chaplain to the U.S. House of Representatives, Patrick J. Conroy, suggests that Church teaching on homosexuality is “outdated,” calling it “a dead end.” He implies that homosexual “marriage” is the only path to happiness for the same-sex attracted.

If the Church now starts watering down magisterial truth, mixing the profane with the holy, where will the same-sex attracted go when our consciences speak to us? Confessionals turned into self-affirmation kiosks comfort no one, and dispense tragedy.

What will happen to same-sex-attracted men and women, boys and girls, if the Church tosses truth out the window and rolls out a rainbow welcome mat? That won’t work, because it’s truth that attracts people to the Church and turns hearts to Christ. It’s truth that resonates in hearts and appeals to the intellect. It’s the pure Gospel message that inspires, not the lies and empty promises of the world.

Who am I to judge? Let me tell you

I am same-sex-attracted, and I once walked away from both my marriage and the Church and lived as a gay man.

Yet something stirred inside me. It was my conscience. After the initial emotional rush of feeling set free, I inwardly sensed something was not right, no matter how much I tried to suppress the thought. Nowadays, it’s nearly unanimously agreed that this unease of conscience comes from societal heteronormativity. We are told that exterior cultural pressures cause the same-sex attracted to feel “different,” resulting in depression, behavioral problems, even suicide. The term now in vogue is ‘minority stress.’

We are also told that the Church is ‘unwelcoming’ because it doesn’t approve of unchaste same-sex behavior, that the Church is ‘seeker unfriendly.’

My experience tells a different story. There was a powerful, innate interior recognition that there was something wrong with my behavior. It wasn’t society telling me I was ‘bad’ or accusing me or failing to accept me. Quite the contrary, I felt 100 percent accepted by everyone I knew. But their acceptance wasn’t the issue. No. My own perfectly functioning conscience was speaking to me, leading me to self-understanding.

In the end, I decided to live a chaste life, to return to my wife and to the Catholic Church. Why? Because it is in the Church that truth is to be found like no other place on earth: packed down, shaken together, filled to the brim and running over (Luke 6:38). And not just truth; I found authentic, intimate fellowship with Catholic brothers within my parish whom I love and who love me. One of the greatest aspects of brotherly love within parish life is this: We help each other not to sin, to find ever greater communion with God, and press forward as men who stand in the breach.

I can easily answer Pope Francis’ now famous question, “Who am I to judge?” I am a Christian who examines my conscience daily. I have to judge, because known truth and the Spirit beckon me to do so. It is my job to judge, to seek truth, and deny lies and the allure of the flesh and the world.

Were it not for the solid teaching of the Catholic Church challenging my life, confirming the work of the Holy Spirit in my life, I would be lost.

Chaste same-sex-attracted Catholics are baffled by the increasing mixed messages arising from the Church, especially from her prelates. And as the voices within the Church calling for her to surrender to the sexual revolution grow louder, the voice of the Gospel grows fainter. These mixed messages damage lives, excusing the very behavior and thought patterns so many seek to escape. They nullify the work of the Holy Spirit.

Trading rock for sand

Satan has long been wearing a hard hat as he excavates beneath the Church, blasting away at the Church’s rock-solid foundation of truth, replacing it with truckload after truckload of sand. The digging and tunneling used to emanate from outside the Church as the ruler of this world burrowed beneath. But now jack hammers are held by clerics who are taking over the jobs extremists outside the church used to do.

With the Church’s magisterial foundation weakened, the structure above will remain intact for a while, but once new waves of attack start rolling in, perhaps from the world of Muslim fundamentalism, the structure will begin to visibly crumble: slowly at first, and then rapidly. Very rapidly. With the Church’s foundation undermined, the faith of many will quiver and collapse and Catholic institutions will buckle and fall.

Many will be caught by surprise, wondering as they wander about the rubble how this could have happened so quickly.

Yet rest assured, the Church belongs to Christ and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. Still, the nagging question remains: How much and how many will be lost because of the Catholic bishops and academics who have lost their way?

    • The Passing of the Pelosi Era

      Friday – June 23, 2017
      By Patrick J. Buchanan

      In the first round of the special election for the House seat in Georgia’s Sixth District, 30-year-old Jon Ossoff swept 48 percent. He more than doubled the vote of his closest GOP rival, Karen Handel.

      A Peach State pickup for the Democrats and a huge humiliation for President Trump seemed at hand.

      But in Tuesday’s final round, Ossoff, after the most costly House race in history, got 48 percent again, and lost. If Democratic donors are grabbing pitchforks, who can blame them?

      And what was Karen Handel’s cutting issue?

      Ossoff lived two miles outside the district and represented the values of the Democratic minority leader, whom he would vote to make the speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco.

      The Pelosi factor has been a drag on Democrats in all four of the special elections the party has lost since Trump’s November triumph.

      Prediction: Democrats will not go into the 2018 Congressional elections with San Fran Nan as the party’s face and future. No way. As President Kennedy said, “Sometimes party loyalty asks too much.”

      Post-Trump, it is hard to see Republicans returning to NAFTA-GATT free-trade globalism, open borders, mass immigration or Bushite crusades for democracy. A cold realism about America’s limited power and potential to change the world has settled in.

      And just as Trump put Bush-Romney Republicanism into the dumpster in the 2016 primaries, Hillary Clinton’s defeat, followed by losses in four straight special elections, portend a passing of the guard in the Democratic Party.

      So where is the party going?

      Clearly, the energy and fire are on the Bernie Sanders-Elizabeth Warren left. Moreover, the crudity of party chair Tom Perez’s attacks on Trump and the GOP, being echoed now by Democratic members of Congress, suggest that the new stridency to rally the angry left is gaining converts.

      Trump’s rough rhetoric, which brought out the alienated working class in the ten of thousands to his rallies, is being emulated by “progressives” — imitation being the sincerest form of flattery.

      Nor is this unusual. After narrow presidential defeats, major parties have often taken a hard turn back toward their base.

      After Richard Nixon lost narrowly to JFK in 1960, the Republican right blamed his “me-too” campaign, rose up and nominated Barry Goldwater in 1964. A choice, not an echo.

      After Hubert Humphrey lost narrowly to Nixon in 1968, the Democratic Party took a sharp turn to the left in 1972 and nominated George McGovern.

      A 21st-century variant of McGovernism seems be in the cards for Democrats today. The salient positions of the party have less to do with bread-and-butter issues than identity politics, issues of race, gender, morality, culture, ethnicity and class.

      Same-sex marriage, abortion rights, sanctuary cities, Black Lives Matter, racist cops, La Raza, bathroom rights, tearing down Confederate statues, renaming streets, buildings and bridges to remove any association with slave-owners or segregationists, putting sacred tribal lands ahead of pipelines, and erasing the name of the Washington Redskins.

      The Democrats’ economic agenda?

      Free tuition for college kids, forgiveness of student loan debt, sticking it to Wall Street and the 1 percent, and bailing out Puerto Rico.

      And impeachment — though a yearlong FBI investigation has failed to find any Trump-Kremlin collusion to dethrone Debbie Wasserman Schultz or expose the debate-question shenanigans of Donna Brazile.

      And where are the Democratic successes since Obamacare?

      The cities where crime is surging, Baltimore and Chicago, have been run for decades by Democrats. The worst-run state in the nation, Illinois, has long been dominated by Democratic legislators.

      The crisis of the old order is apparent as well across the pond.

      Jeremy Corbyn, a Bernie Sanders radical socialist, led his party to major gains in the recent parliamentary elections, as Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May saw her majority wiped out and faces the same seditionist grumbling as Nancy Pelosi.

      Western elites are celebrating the victory of Emmanuel Macron, the “youngest French President since Napoleon,” who defeated Marine Le Pen by a ratio of almost 2-to-1 and whose new party, En Marche! (In Motion!), captured the Assembly. But the celebrating seems premature.

      For the first time in the history of De Gaulle’s Fifth Republic, neither the center-left Socialists nor center-right Republicans, the parties that have ruled France for 60 years, made it into the finals in a presidential election.

      And while the first round of that election saw the ruling Socialist Party’s candidate run fifth, with 6 percent, the votes of the rightist Le Pen and far left-Communist Jean-Luc Melenchon together topped 40 percent. It is the flanks of European politics that seem still to be hard and growing, and the center that seems shaky and imperiled.

      Moreover, Macron faces daunting problems. Unemployment is nearly 10 percent, with youth unemployment twice that. Terrorist attacks from within Muslim communities continue to rise, as do the number of boats of Third Worlders migrating from across the Med.

      Can anyone believe that, as these trends continue, Europeans will continue to back centrist policies and moderate politicians to deal with them?

      Dream on. That is not the history of Europe.

    • Remain Calm Democrats, All Is Well

      June 23, 2017

      Just ask Nancy Pelosi.

      An Animal House, all-is-well quality colored Nancy Pelosi’s Thursday press-conference postmortem of her party’s Tuesday defeat in Georgia.

      “We reduced by 20 points what the advantage had been in that district for the Republicans,” the minority leader, imagining Democrats playing horseshoes or hand grenades, declared. “This is good news for us.”

      If losing a race Nate Silver gave you a 70 percent chance to win comes as “good news,” does repeatedly losing winnable special elections amount to really, really good news? Remarkably, for Nancy Pelosi, yes.

      By juxtaposing the relatively narrow margins of defeat in four 2017 special elections with earlier blowouts in those Kansas, Montana, South Carolina, and Georgia districts, Pelosi triumphally announced that the winnowing gap “adds up to over 71 points.” Pelosi claimed that “if you’re a Republican this is not good news for you.”

      Sure, and the South emerged from the Civil War victorious because it registered more kills than the North and the king won the Glorious Revolution because he fared better than he did in the English Civil War. To borrow one of the favorite quotations from one of Pelosi’s least favorite late Democratic colleagues, “Beam me up, Scotty!”

      A fine line separates turning lemons into lemonade and relabeling vats of urine “lemonade.” Pelosi, in an effort to mute grumbling over her poor leadership, crosses that line.

      Her caucus does not uniformly imbibe her off-putting elixir.

      “We need leadership change,” Kathleen Rice, a representative from New York, declared on CNN. “It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team.”

      Fellow Democrat Tim Ryan, an Ohioan who challenged Pelosi for minority leader last year, offered the blunt diagnosis that “the problem is us, it’s the party.”

      Republicans, unsurprisingly, agree. But they hear Huey Lewis singing “Yes, it’s true, I’m happy to be stuck with you” whenever they see his fellow San Franciscan.

      “Endorsements of a candidate rarely help,” John Pudner, a veteran campaign consultant who now serves as executive director of Take Back Our Republic, tells The American Spectator. “But pointing out an opponent’s endorsements can really help a campaign.”

      And Pudner, who launched Dave Brat’s successful insurgency against Eric Cantor, knows something about ousting unpopular untouchables from their privileged perches.

      “The one-two punch that really kills Democrats is when it’s Pelosi plus Hollywood,” Pudner points out. “And Hollywood weighed-in heavily in Georgia. It’s this California combination.”

      Pelosi, at 77, represents the wrong side of a generation gap. More importantly, the San Francisco pol strikes as the face of the party’s geography gap.

      San Francisco is as middle America as Alpharetta is a metropolis. Startled visitors witness a live-action Night of the Living Dead starring hammer-wielding homeless people, a locale as devoid of children as any Ayn Rand novel, nice Victorian homes boasting the ugliest prices of any major market, and a sad anti-Happy Meal ordinance, store clerks charging customers a dime for a bag, store clerks charging for a dime bag, and permitted parades permitting nudity.

      Its problems and plenty strike most Americans as alien. A politician marinated in that unique milieu can’t help but represent it and represent something quite foreign to people living elsewhere.

      Democrats once understood that parochial figures did not belong in national offices. In the 100 years prior to Nancy Pelosi ascending in 2007 to the speakership, Democrats from Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Alabama, Texas, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, and Washington held the gavel. That diverse array of states helped Democrats hold House majorities for 70 percent of the time. In Pelosi’s 17 years in holding House leadership posts, Democrats sat in the speaker’s chair for just four years. Empowering a representative in the safest district made it unsafe for representatives in other districts.

      While Pelosi misunderstands America, she knows politics. Her father and brother made their marks as mayors of Baltimore, and her well-liked brother-in-law, Ron Pelosi, whose nephew Gavin Newsom serves as lieutenant governor of California, won a seat on the San Francisco board of supervisors in the sixties and seventies. Her spot in the Congress, won via a special election victory now so elusive to her party, owes less to her own family than to the Burton family, a sort of Bay Area Borgia Brothers, who effectively legated her a seat in the House when Phil’s widow Sala passed away.

      The minority leader won’t go down without a fight. And because she ranks as an effective and experienced fighter, she probably won’t face a fight. More likely, she endures a talk, orchestrated by party elders, of whom the Democratic Party overflows, noting the need for young blood for the good of the cause, which, they may need explain, remains liberalism and not Nancy Pelosi.

      Democrats desperately need a fresh face as leader. Nancy Pelosi getting another facelift is not what they have in mind.

  1. How may I reply in other than a manner relation to our respective properties and where they are designed, by God, where specifically to go? I know where they are not and Pelosi should know the same.

  2. Oh, yeah? But … but … Trump drove his golf cart onto his putting green!!!


  3. Bergoglio is a shameless modernist homo enabler. Pelosi Galore is the spiritual and mental equivalent in American politics. Civilization would have been better off (and much safer) if they both had gone into pizzeria restaurant work. Oddly enough, both seem to be slipping into senility and dementia. The Scandal of the Pelosian Mind and its bizarre neo-Gnosticism are worthy of serious study and investigation.
