Gay Pride Parades are Child Abuse



I have voiced my disgust at children attending gay pride parades a few times on this blog (HERE & HERE - warning graphic images) and I am going to do it again.


Look at this child's face...




...dressed like a drag queen and parading down the street at New York's 2015 Pride parade in the middle of OBSCENE people - some naked and some in graphic sexual costumes (click the links below to see a small portion of what these children were forced to witness).  





It is DESPICABLE to me that the United States of America not only allows this abuse, but supports it!

The Girl Scouts where there too...



I can't begin to image the rage of God over what is being done to children in the name of "love".  

Disgusting..and evil.


And what would any gay pride event be without the local heretical "catholics" marching along side them...(note the Catholic parish on the t-shirt).


The images are truly disturbing...nudity and absurd perverted costumes fill the NYMag.com pages covering the "event".  

Remember if you view these images...little children were there witnessing this and much more first hand:

May God have mercy on these vile people...they're going to need it.



In Christ,


Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner

Fr. James Martin another Pied Piper of Hell?

I've got a lot to show and tell, so this is going to be a long one folks.
;)


A priest's response to the Supreme Courts ruling to legalize same sex unions (they are NOT marriages- I don't care what the court says) should be exactly what Christ's Holy Catholic Church says it is...sin, depraved, evil & disordered.
Catechism #2396 Among the sins gravely contrary to chastity are masturbation, fornication, pornography, and homosexual practices.
What a tragic time it is in the Church when priests openly and proudly support legalized sodomy and their Bishops and Pope pretend they don't see it.  



With no Bishops calling out their priests for such scandal it is up to the laity to do.  And how sad when a member of the Catholic laity does step up and attempt to correct such a priest from supporting legalized gay unions...only to have the priest call it "hate". 


And after receiving numerous tweets and Facebook messages attempting to correct Fr. Martin for going against Catholic teaching, Father suggested all those who oppose his position take a hike (guess that means Christ's Holy Catholic Church too- but I am guessing Fr. Martin didn't think of that). 

So some devout Catholics gave up and left...notice Fr. Martin's loving response and those of his groupies...


Nice eh?  So much love for a Catholic who actually SUPPORTS and BELIEVES in Catholic doctrine.

Fr. Martin doesn't want opposition to HIS beliefs...he wants to be adored by his gay activist fans- and he's got THOUSANDS of them judging by his Tweeter and Facebook accounts.  






The utter ignorance and confusion Fr. Martin's fans have is limitless- and he does nothing to correct them or bring them out of their stupor.  They have no more of an idea what love or Christianity is than my tennis shoe does.






Here's an interesting fan... it's an atheist who doesn't believe in God yet declares that Fr. Martin is preaching "the true word of Jesus" correctly and the rest of the Catholic Church has it all wrong. 

No, I'm not kidding.




It's certainly not just Fr. Martin...there are many of his ilk in the Church and that is the problem.  They are IN the Church.

Why?


2089 Incredulity is the neglect of revealed truth or the willful refusal to assent to it. "Heresy is the obstinate post-baptismal denial of some truth which must be believed with divine and catholic faith, or it is likewise an obstinate doubt concerning the same; apostasy is the total repudiation of the Christian faith; schism is the refusal of submission to the Roman Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him." 11


These clergy are heretics and the Church is failing us all by allowing these heretics to remain in their positions poisoning their followers with their father the devil's lies. 

And viewing the Twitter and Facebook responses Fr. Martin gets for his pro-gay activism clearly shows these 'Catholics' as having swallowed his poison.  They are gushing over how loving Father is because he supports their right to gay unions and is rejoicing with them over the Supreme Courts ruling.  He should be weeping and in mourning like so many of the rest of us.


That is NOT what love means Fr. Martin, love is wanting souls to be saved from sin so they can have eternal life with our Lord in Heaven.  You can't get there if you die in mortal sin and yes, homosexual unions/acts are mortal sin.  

These priests are leading a multitude straight into Hell and they do it gleefully and boldly.  Instead of correcting the laity with OFFICIAL Catholic teaching...they support the sinners in their sin and leave them there to one day face eternal damnation.  I can think of nothing more vile for a priest to do then that. That is not love...it is hate. 



Again, what Fr. Martin has done here is not a display of love...it is hatred. He hates these people so much he wishes to leave them in mortal sin and LEAD THEM into mortal sin with his anti-Catholic rhetoric and silence in the face of their confusion.  Instead of telling these people a priest preaching Catholic doctrine on marriage and the sin of homosexual unions is LOVING them, not "an anti-gay message", Fr. Martin is silent on Church teaching and plays the sympathy card with them. 

Catechism #2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, 141 tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."142 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
Fr. James Martin will NEVER tell a gay couple that "homosexual acts are acts of grave depravity".  Nor will he tell the Catholic laity that "under no circumstance" can gay unions be supported or approved.  Nope, instead he talks about his own twisted and corrupted view of love...while he is showing them the purest form of hatred.

Fr. James Martin was extremely touched by a sob story about "Nana & Dot" two old lady "Catholic" lesbians who had to pretend to be sisters so they could live in mortal sin without society calling them out for it.  



The author of the story (another Jesuit)...Jason Welle, SJ gushes about how these lesbians living in mortal sin while being "Eucharistic Ministers" (don't get me started on that) taught him the meaning of love and mutual care...


Then Welles goes on to prove himself a complete fool when he says he knows there will still "be objections from those who believe that gay and lesbian relationships are immoral" as if Christ's Holy Catholic Church isn't one of those who will continue to "object" to such sinful unions. 

I know there will continue to be objections from those who believe that gay and lesbian relationships are immoral or that same sex marriages can simply not be recognized as proper marriages, fellow Catholics and other Americans of good will among them. While they may have run out of legal options to prevent civil recognition of same sex marriage, they will continue to press for the freedom of religious institutions and individuals to live out their lives of faith according to deeply held beliefs. The issue of civil marriage recognition may be settled, but debates about the morality and legality of how individuals and institutions interact in a pluralistic society will continue.
Psst...the debate was over thousands of years ago- NO SUCH THING AS GAY MARRIAGE.  ALL homosexual acts are DEPRAVED.  

How much the gay couple declares their "love" for each other has NOTHING to do with altering whether or not such a relationship is a sin or not. It is.  Accept it and get over it. 

The Church allows these heretics year after year after year to spread their fork-tongued lies to members of Christ's Holy Catholic Church and no one at the Vatican seems to care.  Why not?  

Is the Church still in the business of saving souls or are we just too busy saving sister earth now?


Will someone at the Vatican answer that question?



In Christ,

Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner

Twitter and Gov. Dan Malloy try to silence me

Today I was on Twitter and commented on the Supreme Court's ruling in support of gay marriage and a tweet from Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy's account showing the gay "pride" (pride in sodomy I guess) flag at the governor's residence here in my home state of Connecticut.

Here is the tweet from Governor Dannel Malloy showing his joy at more legalized sodomy...


My response?


A simple "You make me want to puke"... six words and an image of a Vatican document on why Catholics must oppose gay 'marriage' and I am silenced.

Apparently, this is NOT to be tolerated by Gov. Dan Malloy, sodomy lovers or Twitter.

In response I got...



and this gem...



and then from Twitter I got...



Coincidence?  Malloy's office?

So the sodomites and their sodomite loving supporters can voice THEIR opinions on the subject with all sorts of things under the hashtag "LoveWins" but if you have an opposing view point you're Twitter account is locked.

Who knew "You make me sick" was a violation of Twitter rules?  I don't see that listed anywhere, but it doesn't matter.  Coincidence?  Malloy's office?  I oppose gay "marriage" because God calls it a mortal sin and for that and my charming way with the English language Twitter suddenly locks my account?

Who else but the Governor could get such fast action in getting another person's Twitter account locked down?  I could be wrong...but I don't believe this is a coincidence and I don't believe it was any other person on Twitter.  That is my personal opinion.

As of now...Twitter has not unlocked my account.


In Christ and not gonna back down or be silenced,

UPDATE: 
After 4 or 5 emails asking Twitter to show me the tweet that violated their terms of service, Twitter has unlocked my Twitter account.  They NEVER told me what tweet violated what rule, instead they claim it was a sort of unfortunate glitch (yeah right).
They sent me the following a moment ago:

Laudato Si binding on all Catholics according to Lumen Gentium

Over at the Catholic Herald UK, an article in the blog section entitled "No Catholic is free to dissent from the teaching of Laudato Si" references Lumen Gentium section 25 as proving Pope Francis' Laudato Si is in fact binding on every Catholic.

Here it is...

25. Among the principal duties of bishops the preaching of the Gospel occupies an eminent place.(39*) For bishops are preachers of the faith, who lead new disciples to Christ, and they are authentic teachers, that is, teachers endowed with the authority of Christ, who preach to the people committed to them the faith they must believe and put into practice, and by the light of the Holy Spirit illustrate that faith. They bring forth from the treasury of Revelation new things and old,(164) making it bear fruit and vigilantly warding off any errors that threaten their flock.(165) Bishops, teaching in communion with the Roman Pontiff, are to be respected by all as witnesses to divine and Catholic truth. In matters of faith and morals, the bishops speak in the name of Christ and the faithful are to accept their teaching and adhere to it with a religious assent. This religious submission of mind and will must be shown in a special way to the authentic magisterium of the Roman Pontiff, even when he is not speaking ex cathedra; that is, it must be shown in such a way that his supreme magisterium is acknowledged with reverence, the judgments made by him are sincerely adhered to, according to his manifest mind and will. His mind and will in the matter may be known either from the character of the documents, from his frequent repetition of the same doctrine, or from his manner of speaking.
Although the individual bishops do not enjoy the prerogative of infallibility, they nevertheless proclaim Christ's doctrine infallibly whenever, even though dispersed through the world, but still maintaining the bond of communion among themselves and with the successor of Peter, and authentically teaching matters of faith and morals, they are in agreement on one position as definitively to be held.(40*) This is even more clearly verified when, gathered together in an ecumenical council, they are teachers and judges of faith and morals for the universal Church, whose definitions must be adhered to with the submission of faith.(41*)And this infallibility with which the Divine Redeemer willed His Church to be endowed in defining doctrine of faith and morals, extends as far as the deposit of Revelation extends, which must be religiously guarded and faithfully expounded. And this is the infallibility which the Roman Pontiff, the head of the college of bishops, enjoys in virtue of his office, when, as the supreme shepherd and teacher of all the faithful, who confirms his brethren in their faith,(166) by a definitive act he proclaims a doctrine of faith or morals.(42*) And therefore his definitions, of themselves, and not from the consent of the Church, are justly styled irreformable, since they are pronounced with the assistance of the Holy Spirit, promised to him in blessed Peter, and therefore they need no approval of others, nor do they allow an appeal to any other judgment. For then the Roman Pontiff is not pronouncing judgment as a private person, but as the supreme teacher of the universal Church, in whom the charism of infallibility of the Church itself is individually present, he is expounding or defending a doctrine of Catholic faith.(43*) The infallibility promised to the Church resides also in the body of Bishops, when that body exercises the supreme magisterium with the successor of Peter. To these definitions the assent of the Church can never be wanting, on account of the activity of that same Holy Spirit, by which the whole flock of Christ is preserved and progresses in unity of faith.(44*)But when either the Roman Pontiff or the Body of Bishops together with him defines a judgment, they pronounce it in accordance with Revelation itself, which all are obliged to abide by and be in conformity with, that is, the Revelation which as written or orally handed down is transmitted in its entirety through the legitimate succession of bishops and especially in care of the Roman Pontiff himself, and which under the guiding light of the Spirit of truth is religiously preserved and faithfully expounded in the Church.(45*) The Roman Pontiff and the bishops, in view of their office and the importance of the matter, by fitting means diligently strive to inquire properly into that revelation and to give apt expression to its contents;(46*) but a new public revelation they do not accept as pertaining to the divine deposit of faith.(47*)

Laudato Si and the oblivious Catholics who love it



The world is spinning over Laudato Si.  Some are cheering and practically dancing in the streets over it.



From what I see on Twitter and in the blogosphere most Catholics and environmentalists are oozing with sheer joy over this encyclical.  They seem oblivious to what it is proposing to the entire world.

From the Anchoress's post entitled "Laudato Si: All of our sin, All of our hatred on trial"



Some are not so thrilled and are asking “How binding is this on Catholics?”

In other words, “can we disregard it entirely?”

Over at the Remnant, columnist Chris Jackson has decided to “disregard”it and he’s written a fabulous and humorous (in my opinion) piece about why he is dismissing this encyclical and why he thinks others should as well.

Personally, I don’t think it matters who decides to “disregard” this encyclical because the damage is done. 

Disregarding it won’t change anything. 

The people who accept it are the ones who are going to change things.  And now that the Pope has sent this out into the world, there is no taking it back. 

As I said in my previous post HERE what troubles me the most is the pope pushing for a global One World Authority to police the entire world over the issue climate change.  I haven't seen anyone on Twitter or in the blogs (besides myself) mention this part of the encyclical (if others have PLEASE share a link, I'd love to read your thoughts).  



All the Catholics out there who think Laudato Si is wonderful and it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, think for a moment what YOUR life would be like if the world embraced Pope Francis’ idea of a One World Authority.

What if this authority were to resemble a nation…oh, let’s say like China.  And this One World Authority has decided that women can only have one child- all other pregnancies will be forcefully terminated because this One World Authority has strict population control laws that it enforces on the entire globe.  No more big Catholic families!  Still loving Laudato Si?

How would you like such an authority killing your children?

Or perhaps this authority would resemble nations like Belgium and the Netherlands where euthanasia is legal and used to dispose of humans other people don't want?  If such a One World Authority decided people with illnesses and handicaps were depleting the world of a resource they could effectively kill human beings to save the “fragile planet” (Laudato Si #16) Pope Francis is so concerned with.

How would you like such an authority killing your loved ones or yourself because this authority decided the environment was more important than your life or the life of one of your loved ones?

Or how would it be if the United Nations became the One World Authority on the environment and they decided to enforce birth control on nations that had a higher population of poor people. 


Think the United Nations wouldn't love to have the power to police the entire world and dictate their plan of population control?  Right now all they can do is make proposals and attempt to sway nations- if given the power to police, there would be no stopping them. 

How would you and your family like to be forced against your religious beliefs to use birth control?  Forced sterilization procedures?  Still feeling warm and fuzzy about the Pope’s suggestions to the world?

Ok, how would it be if the One World Authority were one single individual like…Margaret Sanger who decided black people and people in poverty were not worthy to take up space on our earth? 


If you or one of your loved ones fell into one of those categories how would you deal with it?  Still warm and fuzzy over this encyclical? 

Does ANYONE honestly think a moral, trustworthy person or institution will police the world? 

Population control supporters have been working at gaining such a power for decades and Pope Francis has just handed it to them on a silver platter called Laudato Si with oblivious Catholic’s smiling and bobbing their air filled heads at it with no thought at all to what such power in the wrong hands would do to people. 

Think people!  Open your eyes to what is going on in the world!  

I know everyone is sick to death of the term “slippery slope” but remember how that works when you have corrupt radicals as a majority deciding laws (abortion, gay marriage, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, cloning etc).  You can’t possibly believe a One World Authority policing the entire globe is a good thing. 

I can’t believe anyone is that dumb. 


In Christ, 


Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner

Must read tweets responding to Pope's "Laudato Si"


Twitter was burning up today over Pope Francis' Laudato Si encyclical.

I read a lot of tweets cheering the new encyclical and some very critical of it and others questioned what the point of it is when there are souls being lost.






















But none were as...animated against it as the tweets from Brother Alexis Bugnolo...



...who had the following to say on the matter:











Just a wild guess...but I think Br. Alexis is neither a fan of Laudato Sii or Pope Francis.





In Christ,


Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner
