Number one. From Radio Vaticana. “The Bishop of Trier, Stephan Ackermann, criticizes offers to “heal” homosexuality. There is no official church support for such initiatives, Ackermann said on Wednesday evening in Saarbrücken….Ackermann expressed at the Lesbian and Gay Association (LSVD) Saar organized public discussion, attended by around 100 people took part. The two-hour meeting was the first of its kind in Germany.”
A Bishop saying that the Church does not believe in ‘healing’ those who suffer from an intrinsic disorder which can be so destructive in the lives of people, seems at odds with Catholicism. That is not to say that all methods are created equally and that quackery should not be avoided, but if we love them we must help to heal them.
Number two. As if this wasn’t bad enough, Radio Vaticana in their report on the Bishop’s statement used this picture on the Vatican website..
Yes, this picture on the Vatican website.
There is a scene in Rocky II in which Rocky’s manager has the following conversation with him:
Mickey: [after slapping Rocky in the face with his left hand] Now you didn’t even see that comin’, did ya? And that’s comin’ from a broken down punk like me. What… what do ya think the champ would do to ya?
Rocky Balboa: Hurt me bad, I guess…
Mickey: Na, he’d hurt ya permanent. *Permanent*!
That is precisely what the current gay heresy is doing to Christianity. Christian denomination after Christian denomination are turning their backs on Christian morality in a futile attempt to placate the bigoted activists among a minute sliver of the population actively engaged in a sexual perversion. The forces that promote this fundamental betrayal of Christ are now very active and very powerful within the Church, and it is time, past time, for faithful Catholics to stand up and say we will not tolerate this attempt to transform sin into non-sin and to pretend that this sexual perversion is equivalent to male-female relationships. What a truly silly and corrupt time in which we live!
