Jesuits produce “All Are Welcome” pro-homosexual lifestyle video series September 5, 2013Posted by tantamergo in asshatery, Basics, disaster, horror, scandals, self-serving, sexual depravity, shocking, sickness, Spiritual Warfare, the enemy, unadulterated evil.
Uh…….Jesuit-in-Chief, Pope Francs? Can you do something about your order, please? Like suppressing it? Because it’s so far gone, you can’t even see it from here in Catholic Land.
A new video series produced and promoted by the North American Jesuits is out misrepresenting Catholic belief, and encouraging active homosexuality:
A series of videos sponsored by the Jesuit Roman Catholic religious order, titled “Who are we to judge,” in reference to a comment made earlier this year by Pope Francis about homosexual priests, has come under fire for promoting the idea that there is no conflict between being a faithful Catholic and being an active homosexual [We are going to be haunted by the really inappropriate, unfortunate comment for years.]
The video series was produced by the Ignatian News Network, a YouTube channel that is a joint project of the US Jesuits and Loyola Productions in Los Angeles, to feature videos about the work and mission of the American Jesuits. [So, this isn't just one little group of Jesuits, this is the provincial on board with this disaster. Do they care nothing for the eternal destination of souls?]
Prominently featured in the series is Arthur Fitzmaurice, the head of the Catholic Association for Lesbian and Gay Ministry (CALGM), a group that is currently under censure by their local Catholic bishop for misrepresenting Catholic teaching. Fitzmaurice says in the videos that his “coming out” experience as a homosexual “strengthened my faith journey”. At first he said he had asked God, “how do I leave this cross behind me, how do I become a straight man?” which he said changed in time to “a realisation that God made me to be this gay person”. [I'm skeptical that was his reasoning process. Whoever said the Church demands homosexuals become heterosexual? What the Church, what Christ, requires of everyone, is chastity. And any homosexual act - any sexual act outside the confines of a marriage between one man and one woman, ordered towards the procreation of children - is unchaste.]
Fitzmaurice says that his group only wants “to create a Church where all are welcome at all parishes. And once they’re there, not just being welcomed, but a place where they’re going to thrive.” [How can one "thrive" while mired, unrepentant, in the basest of sins? And not just sin, but an entire lifestyle built around that sin? This is all entirely self-serving. And note the trick language, homosexuals are not "welcome" in Catholic Churches, unless they are permitted to openly practice their perversion, and have that practice embraced and rejoiced in by the entire Church.]
However, in June of last year, Bishop Salvatore Cordileone of Oakland, where the gay ministry is based, issued a statement saying that the group cannot be regarded as “authentically Catholic” due to their opposition to Catholic teaching.
In letters to the gay ministry board, Cordileone requested that each member “strive to clearly present Catholic doctrine on homosexuality in its fullness” and “profess personally to hold and believe, and practice all that the holy Catholic Church teaches, believes and proclaims to be true, whether from the natural moral law or by way revelation from God through Scripture and tradition”. The group’s leadership twice told Cordileone they refused to sign such a declaration. [And why haven't they been excommunicated, formally? They have twice rejected Church Doctrine, they reject Dogma on chastity....and yet they are allowed to continue to call themselves Catholic, spread scandal, confuse souls, and would the Faith? I'm disappointed in Archbishop Cordileone.]
…..The first video in the series starts with an interview with Fr. James Martin, S.J., a prominent US media personality and Jesuit priest [and raving modernist embracer of every left wing cultural fad] in New York, who has made advocating for the normalisation of homosexuality in the Catholic Church a prominent feature of his career. [Yet another reason for the Jesuits to be suppressed. This guy is a disaster, a heretic.]
Martin says that “many LGBT people” “have very deep spiritual lives and are Christians.” [Certainly, nothing says "deep spiritual life" like the wanton promiscuity most homosexual males engage in. Ever been to a homosexual "pride" parade?] He also denies a conflict between the Catholic Church and the homosexual movement, saying, “It’s not as if you have atheist gays on one side, and religious or spiritual straight people on the other.”
Martin also praises the movement in the Catholic Church in the US and elsewhere that is a feature of many parishes that encourages homosexuals to believe they can be actively “gay” and faithful as Catholics, without contradiction. “The idea that someone could come out and be honest and transparent and open about the way that God created them, I think is terrific. I think it’s something that the Catholic Church can support,” he says. ["Support," only by completely chucking what it means to be Catholic, rejecting the plain, repeated meaning of Scripture, as well as 2000 years of Tradition. Only a modernist could make such a claim. And modernism is a condemned heresy.]
Martin adds, “If a music minister is gay, it doesn’t matter [to other parishioners] if they’re homosexual…it matters that they did a great job at the [liturgy of the] Easter Vigil.
“If a spiritual director is gay, it doesn’t matter that they’re homosexual. It matters that they’ve brought people to God through prayer.” [Oh really?!? It doesn't matter that a spiritual director who cannot satisfy the requirements of basic chastity is counseling souls?! Oh what wisdom will they surely dispense! What wonders of spiritual growth will they provide?!! You don't think this spiritual direction might be a bit worldly, might gloss over such trivialities as dying to self, mortification, self-transformation, living for Christ by observing ALL the Church knows to be true? I knew Martin was a disaster, but did not know quite how bad he is. How, on earth, is this man still "a priest in good standing?" Please..........]
Episode 2 of the series features John Paul Godges, a “gay Catholic” author, who says at the opening of Episode 2, “My Christian faith, of course, has been a source of strength in my spiritual journey throughout my life as a gay man. My experience as a gay man has been a source of strength in my Christian journey.” [Oh.......I'm soooo sure it has.]
“A gay identity can inspire and deepen a Christian faith.” [Provided that "Catholic Faith" is made to bow low to my sexual proclivities and the wisdom of our fallen, sexular pagan culture?]
Godges says, “I often tell people that being Catholic is like being American. [No, it's not. Not at all. It's so far above nationality it's not even comparable. You have no idea what you're talking about, save to an almost entirely secular audience already lost of the Faith] And just because some politician prosecutes a misbegotten war, [like Obama?] I’m not going to renounce my citizenship and flee to Canada. [Just because some Bible, Savior, Saint, 2000 years of Tradition, etc says that my actions are an immense affront to God, I'm not going to let that harsh my concupiscence buzz......I'm going to keep right on lusting, and force God to change!] I’m going to stay and fight and communicate and converse and speak at retreats and do whatever I can to promote the best that’s in the Catholic Church…I’m not going to let anyone take that away from me.”
And that last bit is what it all comes down to. 50+ years of modernist indoctrination and creeping protestant “private revelation” have left the vast majority of self-described Catholics so badly formed they haven’t even the foggiest of notions what it is to be Catholic. What that term has meant, and means, is to submit to all the Church has revealed to be true by divine faith. To trust with all our heart, mind, and soul, that Holy Mother Church has revealed the Will of God and His Truth, and to submit to that. Every heretic rejects that requirement, to one degree or another, but never in the history of the Church has the heresy been so deep and broad. So that today, the vast majority of Catholics think exactly like this man: the Faith isn’t a set of beliefs and practices ordered towards producing radical changes in behavior towards a moral, God-pleasing existence, but a mere cultural label one wears, one of many associations and lifestyle accoutrements that, while “very important,” would certainly never induce one to die to self and possibly change some aspect of their lives that is incompatible with the Faith. That would be un-American!
No, for this vast sea of people, they don’t have to submit to the Faith, but the “faith” to them and all their million little proclivities. To some degree, it’s always been such, but never before have so many utterly lost souls been invincibly convinced of their stalwart, heck, saintly, Katholicysm.
And that, my friends, is the inevitable result of many decades of meaningless, erroneous modernist reformulations of Dogma and indifferentist approaches to the Faith. Harvesting the fruit of the revolution in the Church, indeed…….
Tomorrow, God willing, we shall hear from a good, old Jesuit, who utterly crushes all the self-serving sophistry above.
