Joseph Sciambra has a piece over at LifesiteNews HERE.
“At age 17, a Catholic priest told me God had created me this way. Over a decade later, I would talk to another Catholic priest. This time, I was suffering from an anal prolapse. God still made me gay. When I crawled half-dead out of San Francisco, I never thought I would have this conversation with Catholics. When I went to the Castro in 1988, it was the height of the AIDS crisis, but I didn’t care. I’d been alone my whole life, and I was willing to risk my life, if I could live like a human being for a few years rather than as a freak…The local Catholic Church had a rainbow flag hanging outside the front door. I watched as friends dropped into the grave, but I didn’t care – because I was alive. Sometimes the greatest punishment endured by those who survive is surviving. I can’t forget those I left behind. After seeing such carnage, I cannot understand why the gay experiment has not been abandoned like other failed utopian philosophies that resulted in mass murder – fascism, Nazism, communism. After over 300,000 gay men in the U.S. alone have died of AIDS, that the Church allows this debate to continue is reprehensible. When I hear those in the Catholic Church say “you were born gay,” I think: My God, they are killing us.”
The idea that God is responsible for homosexual orientations, that the pope and the Catholic Church are fine with men being attracted to one another, and that those so oriented should be happy with it, appears, on its face, to be heresy. It implies that what Catholics regarded for centuries as moral truth was wrong, or that moral truth has evolved and must be made to conform to modernity. This is moral relativism: Truth changes with the times.
…the pope’s position is close to Hillary Clinton’s. In 2016, at a New York fundraiser, Clinton recited her infamous litany of sins common to the “basket of deplorables” backing Donald Trump. Said Hillary, they are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic.” A phobia is “an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something.” Clinton was thus saying that those who have an aversion to homosexuality are morally or mentally sick…
The new morality we hear from the pope and Hillary reflects a historic change in the moral thinking of the West. For the belief that homosexuality is normal and natural, and not only acceptable but even praiseworthy, has carried the day… Legislatures and courts have written this “truth” into law. It has been discovered by the Supreme Court to be lurking in that Constitution whose authors regarded and treated homosexuality as a grave crime.
Consider the views of Cardinal Gerhard Muller, lately removed as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, as to what is behind the drive to have “homophobia” regarded as a mental disorder.
“Homophobia (is) an invention and an instrument of the totalitarian dominance over the thoughts of others. The homo-movement is lacking scientific arguments, which is why it created an ideology which wants to dominate by creating its own reality.”
In short, cultural Marxists and their progressive allies have taken an ideological assertion — homosexuality is normal, natural and moral — without any historical, biological or scientific basis, and asserted it as truth, established it as law, and demanded that we accept and act upon this truth, or face the wrath of the regime.
Said Muller: “It is the Marxist pattern according to which reality does not create thinking, but thinking creates its own reality. He who does not accept this created reality is to be considered as being sick.
“It is as if one could influence an illness with the help of the police or with the help of courts. In the Soviet Union, Christians were put into psychiatric clinics. These are the methods of totalitarian regimes, of National Socialism and of Communism.”
Their motto: Reality is whatever we say it is, and bringing you into conformity with their “reality” will be accomplished by whatever means necessary. Tolerance was never the goal, it was just a tactic. Acceptance isn’t the goal either. They will take this all the way to PARTICIPATION, if not in actual sodomy then at least in the profanation of sacred things by way of commingling with sodomy.
We’re crossing the Rubicon, folks. Get your head around what’s happening. Much will be required of you, and you need to start preparing for battle in more ways than one.
