PopeWatch: Lavender Mafia

Friday, June 16, AD 2017

 

 

The Lavender Mafia is alive and well at the Vatican:

 

Cardinal Joseph Tobin told the New York Times that it would have been “backhanded” of him to mention anything about sin to the “LGBT pilgrims” who he personally welcomed to a Cathedral Mass last month.

On Sunday, May 21, the Cardinal was on hand at Newark’s Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart to personally welcome homosexuals on a so-called “LGBT Pilgrimage.”

When asked by the New York Times if he should have used the event to call the “LGBT pilgrims” out of sin, Cardinal Tobin replied: “That sounds a little backhanded to me.” 

“It was appropriate to welcome people to come and pray and call them who they were. And later on, we can talk,” he said. 

The Cardinal said that to “combine his welcome with a criticism would not have been a full welcome at all.”

Some other high profile priests and bishops pushing the envelope on the acceptance of homosexuality within the Church include: 

  • Fr. James Martin, SJ, editor-at-large for the Jesuit magazine America and recently appointed to the Vatican as a communications consultant, who just published his pro-homosexual book, Building a Bridge.
  • Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, now at the helm of both the Pontifical Academy for Life and the Pontifical Pope John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family, who paid a homosexual artist to paint a homoerotic mural in his cathedral church in 2007. The mural includes an image of the archbishop himself clasped to a semi-naked man.
  • Cardinal Kevin Farrell, recently appointed by Pope Francis to head the Vatican office on laity, family, and life issues, who has called on his city’s priests to embrace “LGBT families.”
  • The Diocese of San Diego, under Bishop Robert McElroy, recently announced that Fr. John Dolan, a priest with an LGBT-positive record, had been appointed by the Vatican to be an auxiliary bishop. Fr, Dolan had previously gone on record suggesting that there is no problem with homosexual “marriage” within the Catholic church.

Catholic parishioners in some major urban centers may also have noticed a creeping incrementalism of the acceptance of homosexuality within their parishes. 

For instance, in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, St. Matthew’s Parish has been promoting homosexuality and its so-called “compatibility” with Catholicism for years.

In the Archdiocese of New York, leaders of “gay and lesbian ministries” in three separate parishes openly flout Catholic teaching on sexual morality, saying that their lifestyle choices are part of how God made them. 

Go here to read the rest.  Bank on the Lavender Mafia being behind the sudden resignation of Pope Benedict.

  • I am sick to death of homosexualism. They are indeed pushing the envelope. God knows when they push too far.

  • Cardinal could have offered an off-hand remark on whether one could simultaneously be LGBT and Catholic Christian. Problem is: where does he stand?

    I’m totally ignorant in Theology. Were Hitler’s life style choices part of how God made him?

  • Lavender Mafia and Free Masonry ties?

    I wonder.
    My guess is that there connected.

    Was Francis blanketing a smokescreen when he ordered Cardinal Burke to clear out Mason’s a few months ago? http://angelqueen.org/2017/01/12/pope-ordered-card-burke-to-clean-out-freemasons-from-the-knights-of-malta/

    Who knows.
    In this climate it’s a possibility.

    As always we must pray for his conversion.
    Holy Spirit take over… please.

  • I think us lay people are more faithful to our faith its teaching and our Lord Jesus Christ then any of the Bishops, Cardinal, Priest and our Pope who all seem to be leading us in the wrong direction. I wish they would grow a backbone and teach the teaching that God wants us to live by. Shame on them!!!!

  • Homosexuality or same sex attraction is an act of “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.” Addiction to sodomy and the vice of lust is a free will act contrary to and in violation of the rational free will. Sodomy itself is assault and battery of another human being. There is nothing sexual about sodomy. Sodomy is a crime against oneself and Nature. Only Truth will set us free. The Truth about addiction to sodomy is enslavement to slavery. The Preamble to our Constitution promises “the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our (Constitutional ) Posterity, all future generations. Enslaving all future generations, our Posterity, to an addiction to sodomy is the devil’s work. All human beings are conceived in original innocence, legal and moral innocence. They are the standard of Justice for our nation from the very first moment of their existence. To corrupt an innocence child needs a millstone about the neck and a very deep river into which the corrupter needs to cast himself. Priest, pagan and heretics all are required to maintain our innocent children in innocence as their God and their heritage intends for them.

  • Only those persons who reverence the human person can enter into the honorable state of Holy Matrimony.
    Informed consent cannot be given to sodomy. Sodomy is a lie. A female husband and a male bride is a lie and perjury in a court of law. Informed consent cannot be given to a lie because by its very nature a lie is disinformation.
