And it came to pass Yours Truly was in Continental Europe again; or, you might say, in the belly of the EU beast.
There, yours truly kept noticing something observed increasingly more often observed in the last ten or so years. Allow me to expand.
Stupidity is engulfing Europe like a Tsunami. The forefront of this tsunami is undoubtedly England, but Continental Europe is only 20 years back, with the most southern Countries like Italy perhaps delayed another 10. As the years go by the tidal wave moves, inexorably.
When I was young, carrying long hair or an unkemp beard was the mark of rebellion. Purple hair and tattoos were basically non-existent. Very fat young women had children throwing stones at them. There were very, very few of those, though. It's not really pleasant to have children throw stones at you because you look like you have just escaped from the circus.
I got older and went to England, like so many of my generation, to study English. I noticed people with purple hair and tattoos, all of them very young. But this was still an extreme appearance. Later, as I moved to Germany, tattoos and purple hair were still taboo; apart from, say, some parts of Berlin and the then drug-district around Frankfurt main train station. The mass morbid obesity was still not there.
Fast forward to the United Kingdom in the Year of Our Lord 2016. When compared to my youth, two phenomena are immediately apparent: the huge number of people (many of them young or very young) who are obscenely obese, and the vast number of people with tattoos and purple hair. The epidemic of obesity just wasn't there the first time I visited the Country now around three decades ago, whilst – as already stated – the tattoos and pink hair where the preserve of very young people playing punk to satisfy their overflowing stupidity.
You would think they would develop to decent people one day. Many of them didn't.
In the UK it is now not uncommon to see old people, but particularly old women – 60 or older – with a tragic case of arrested development: still with purple hair, still dressing like stupid teens in their Sixties, still pretending they are some sort of rebel. You see them strolling around in yoga pants in Central London, and you wonder what the Obama is wrong with us. Rebels, very clearly, they aren't, unless you count looking like a clown at 60 “rebellion”. You also see an increasing number of young people – particularly women – so disgustingly obese in their teens or early twenties that they already have problems in carrying around their own deformity. Young people, I say, or very young people. You would want to cry seeing young lives on the sure path to emotional and, not too far down the line, physical self-destruction. But the madness will keep going.
A country that doesn't believe in anything does not judge anything. It will let these idiots die as crippled in an electric wheelchair, of heart attack and diabetes, in their fifties, forties and even thirties; after which there will be nice party in lieu of a funeral, to “celebrate their lives”.
But then you move to Continental Europe and start observing a new phenomenon: purple hair and tattoos in people of apparent age of 35 to 40. They weren't there twenty years ago, but they are there now. The same phenomenon is here at work, but in this case the mass arrested development clearly started later. Morbid obesity is not there, but it's clearly worse than in Italy, where the first signs of alarming overweight youth have appeared already. The tidal wave of stupidity marches on, north to south. In time, it will submerge everything.
My forecast: these people will not develop anymore. In twenty years' time we will be confronted with 80 years old women – those who haven't eaten thrmselves to death, of course – sporting purple hair and wearing yoga pants (yes, you can start vomiting now), and showing their Dalai-lama t-shirts with amply wrinkled tattoos on their arms as they roll along in those electric wheelchairs, by then a common feature of Western society. By that time, you will see people of the same type in Germany and Belgium, but probably of age sixty. Give it another ten or fifteen years and Italy or Portugal will follow. They will become dumber, fatter, more tattooed, and more electric-wheel chaired as time goes by.
Am I being “judgmental”? You bet I am!
I have, confronted with these people, the same attitude and the same judgment our much wiser forefathers had in past times; in times, that is, when people not only recognised the idiot, but said so very clearly. Oh, blessed times of “judgmental” reasoning, and social control through elementary common sense!
We have forgotten the sense of sin, and have made excuses for gluttony. We have forgotten the sense of decency, and have made excuses for purple hair. We have forgotten the sacredness of our God-given body, and have made excuses for tattoos. We have forgotten the importance of social control, and do not shame anyone anymore. Not even perverts.
We have become godless, and stupid. This is why we sink in a pit of obscene obesity, obscene outward appearance, obscene sexual perversion, and obscene “we are the world” wannabe Dalai Lama platitudes.
I can see the tidal wave roll, slowly but surely, from the UK down to Mitteleuropa and, in time, to Southern Europe.
There is only one way to stop it.
It is the recovery of our religious identity and of the sanity that goes with it.
Enough with arrested development. Let's go back to the faith – and sanity – of our forefathers.
I would like to intervene in one of the last two or three controversies ignited by the Evil Clown (I think we also have the “Luther was right” in the meantime. Satan is strong in this one…) and agree with Pope Dope at least in this, that the Church should apologise to perverts.
She should apologise for the homosexual priests who have perverted the teaching of the Church as they tried (and still try) not only to confuse the faithful, but to find candidates to satisfy their perverted lust.
She should apologise for the weakness of not calling homosexuality a grave depravity nearly as often as she should, and for falling back to sensitive language like “intrinsically disordered”, which does not convey the idea of impending hell nearly as good as “perverted”.
She should apologise for a culture of “niceness” that is the most cruel, most uncharitable approach in the face of souls in danger of hell.
She should apologise for Pope Francis, a godless, entirely secular hater of the Church who does not care for their salvation because he does not even believe in his own (or else is a closet Satanist; at this point, no one would be surprised).
Yes, the Church should apologise to homos. She is allowing them to go to hell (and, unless they repent of their sins of sodomy, to hell they will go, as there is no invincible ignorance of natural law) just in order to look good with the enemies of Christ, even as a lewd buffoon leads, unwittingly or not, Satan's charge.
Mind: everyone who sends himself to hell has no right to be excused because the Church has left him alone. But this does not make the stain on the earthly Church smaller. Actually, it makes it bigger.
And it came to pass it appears probable the man who massacred the 49 not-very-gay people in Orlando was a homo himself. Obviously, it can be that he had visited the place a dozen time to scout the theatre of operation, and it could also be that the reports he tried to “pull” people during his visits are lies. However, it seems all rather plausible to me.
This is not the first time I hear the like of this. I remember just on the spot at least one horrible murder in Italy and another one in Germany involving horrible suffering inflicted from sods to other sods. I also suspect this happens much more often than generally assumed, and the Buggers Broadcasting Communism (BBC) and their ilk simply choose to conveniently omit the “sexual orientation” of the murderer and victim because, ahem, “not relevant”.
Fags hate fags. Not only they hate each other with a passion, but they hate themselves (hence the real meaning of the word “homophobic”) just as much. We should not be surprised if the worst US massacre of perverts in living memory was perpetrated by another one of them. Actually, we should have suspected it before the news even come out.
Someone should start a campaign to protect perverts from the “homophobia” of other perverts. However, I think just the opposite will happen, and the Gaystapo will now be screeching everywhere in a very high pitched tone, decrying the cruelty of all those who have absolutely nothing to do with the massacre.
You might be asked (as I was) whether it is possible that the unrepentant sodomites killed in Orlando might have escaped hell because (don't laugh) “they did not know sodomy is a mortal sin”.
I replied (as you should) with the following arguments:
Firstly, sodomy goes against natural law. No one can claim ignorance of natural law, because its rules are “imprinted” in every soul at birth. The argument of the sodomite who “did not know” dies already at this point. Note also the vaguely blasphemous undertone of this “question”: that sodomy may be a kind of accident due to lack of information.
Secondly, we must not lie to ourselves to the point of idiocy. It is more probable that a snowball in hell does not melt, than a sod in Orlando, Florida, USA “does not know” what the Church says about sodomy. You can safely assume that – even leaving aside the first argument – everyone among the victims in possession of a halfway functioning brain knew.
Thirdly, “ignorance” in Catholic doctrine never extends to “I have deluded myself into believing that the Church does not mean what she has always meant”. If this were the case, one could claim innocence for any atrocity. It would be pure “Francis church”: if you follow your “conscience”, you will be fine. Hitler, Biden, Pelosi & Co. would be as pure as snow. Francis would be a wonderful Catholic.
Fourthly, the entire propaganda lie of the last decades is based exactly on this assumption: that Christians condemn perverts as sinner. Everything these people say and do (from calling themselves “gay” to congregate in “gay bars”) is the result of their being in opposition to traditional, and therefore Christian, morality.
No, it does not work that way. The argument is non-existent.
The question is not whether an unrepentant sodomite will be saved. Of course he won't, or Christianity is a lie; and woe to those (as be they Popes) who try to smuggle a new religion of “niceness” as Christianity.
The question is, on the contrary, whether the single sodomite was saved by being given the grace of final repentance. We can hope for this or that good outcome in individual cases, well knowing that the fox at the bottom of the hole is, on hearing the hound approaching, greatly encouraged to a fox-ish contrition. However, Catholic doctrine teaches us that unrepented mortal sin will not even be forgiven – outside of valid confession – thank to an imperfect contrition, and that a perfect contrition is required instead. Imagine what a mockery and an exercise in futility and stupidity Christianity would be, if “ignorance” could be used by merely claiming it.
The “man” texting to his mother “I am gonna die” should have texted after that: “Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner”, and one could have pointed out to this as a reason to have some hope for him. Coincidentally or not, such messages never seem to make it to the Mainstream Sodom Press. But honestly, I think the majority of the victims never thought about contrition. The idea of persevering in faith and trying to live a good life is that this strengthens our resolution, provides us with good habits, and as a result increases our chances of salvation. It is absurd to think that a person may dig for himself a hole of depravity and lye in it without this greatly increasing the probability that he is a reprobate. There is a difference between striving to live a Christian life (sinners as we all are) and striding towards hell day in and day out.
The bottom line is this: God will not be mocked, and those who think they can mock God by kidding themselves into their own convenient set of beliefs are, exactly, kidding themselves.
We wish salvation to everyone, even to those disgusting sods who were “celebrating” their perversion until they heard the first shots. We hope that many of them may have been saved, though we can reasonably assume that their number was limited. But we know as a certainty of the faith that all those who died unrepentant of their sin of sodomy are now in hell, because God shall not be mocked.
Sobering, uh? But that's how it is.
Beware of those (and may they be Popes) who suggest to you that one only needs to kid oneself out of natural law to avoid damnation.
Let me say first that I abhor homosexuality, in the same way as I abhor sexual perversion of all kind. To me – as to countless generations of Christians before me, not to mention a vast number of heathens and atheists – sodomy and any kind of “same sex” sexual abomination are in the same ballpark as incest and bestiality.
However, as a Christian – and as a person of common sense – I know that, at times, people change; and I also know that to each and every pervert is given grace to overcome his perversion, if he only collaborates with that grace.
When, therefore, a person has overcome such a terrible – and disgusting – affliction, he has all the right to our appreciation. And let me tell you here that whilst I never had, nor I would ever have, one of those perverts people call “gay friends”, I would be glad to have Voris over for lunch at my place, and would be proud of calling a person of his intelligence and ability – and now completely cleansed of his old perversion – a friend of mine. Not, mind, out of the stupid and effeminate “inclusiveness” of this stupid and effeminate century, but exactly because of the opposite reason: that the man has freed himself from the filth, and is now disgusted from his past behaviour.
Praise the Lord, say I! Let this be a lesson to every “Born this way” pervertling out there! Homosexuality is a perversion: right thinking, prayer, and collaboration with God’s grace get. rid. of. it, because you can’t love God and be a pervert at the same time. Love of purity means hate of filth, full stop.
Nor can the poor man be now accused – as I suspect not a few will do – of hypocrisy. It would have been grave and unnecessary scandal if the man had gone about talking of his past perversion. Among decent people, homosexuality is a taboo, like incest. You just don’t put it out there in public. You wouldn’t have wanted to know if he had screwed his sister, either.
I still am in grave disagreement with Voris about the way he deals – or rather, not deals – with all the heresies and the blasphemies of the Evil Clown; and I find it desecrable that he has – to my knowledge – still not apologised to Mr Verrecchio, Vennari, Ferrara, and Matt after the brutal, gratuitous accusations thrown at them; but the commitment of the man I have never doubted; and if a man appears sincere and a lover of truth, I think he has the right to our confidence in his good faith.
When the prodigal son returns home, good Catholic slaughter the fat calf; they do not ask from him a detailed description of what he has done in the taverns and whorehouses. Nor do I. Actually, I would have had the details spared. But hey, I’ll put this on Cardinal Dolan’s tab.
Well done, Mr Voris.
Please find it in yourself to apologise to the excellent gentlemen mentioned above. Please also, if you can, find it in yourself to start fighting the abomination of this papacy in the right way. But be assured that from this little blog there will be no mockery, and no accusation of hypocrisy, because of your recent revelations.
This not, mind, because of stupid thinking à la “who am I to judge”; but because your sincere repentance and disgust for your past sins puts you squarely on the right side; where I hope and trust – and pray – you will remain for the rest of your days.
We are informed that the heroic Kim Davis (may the Lord give her one thousand blessings, among them the grace to convert to Catholicism) has consented to meet Pope Francis. As a consequence, the neocon camp is trying to persuade us that Francis is a Catholic tough guy (no, he is neither), and some liberals are venting disappointment at the Gay Pope meeting with a “homophobic” woman.
I think both sides are wrong, and the logic of the meeting is to be sought in one word:Jesuitism.
I have observed many times that Francis has the habit of doing something Catholic on a Monday morning so he can appease the simple and go on being a full-fledged heretic the rest of the week. The visit to the tomb of Pius X, the vague references to the “family”, and the “concessions” to the SSPX, whom he certainly fears, are all part of this forma mentis.
Like Manzonis Don Abbondio, Francis is always eager to let the side he works against know that there is nothing personal, and if they had been stronger he would have supported them instead. Alas, he has to be with the winner; but he is also afraid of the loser, so there…
The Kim Davis episode is the latest illuminating episode. If Francis had wanted to send a strong message he would have met Kim Davis in front of several hundred journalists, and would have addressed words of approval and encouragement to her, coram populo.
He did not do anything of the sort. He merely needed to give some fodder to the pigeons. Kim Davis was just the ticket.
This is the way Francis thinks, and it is surprising that this is not universally recognised by now.
As the days of the Synod approach, we know that two main points are on the heretics' agenda: adultery and sexual perversion.
Some very interesting contributions have been written to the effect that the adultery issue was meant to be the Trojan Horse for the “laundering” of homosexuality. I personally have the following views on the matter:
1. As numbers go, adultery is a far more pressing issue for Father Heretic than sodomy. Among the nominal Catholics in his parish there will easily be 50 public adulterers for every public dyke or sodomite, and whilst fags have relatives who may well “symphatise” this is no less true for the adulterers. Basically, if the German Pater Haeretisch wants to garner consensus and Kirchensteuer-money around him adultery beats sodomy hands down. Adultery's laundering is also, undoubtedly, his main economic interest.
2. However, Pater Haeretisch may well be a pervert himself, and in this case the matter of sodomy will touch him in a rather more striking way, the usual conflict of the sodomite – the knowledge that he is wrong, dirty, and a pervert – being amplified by his supposedly being a man of God. One can imagine for many of these Pater Schwulette the issue is more pressing than even the Ka-ching of the parish tills.
3. The one aim does not negate the other. Adultery is, grave as it is, a sin that still goes with nature. Sexual perversion is, as going against nature, a completely new ball game. There is no imagining that the laundering of sins against nature would not achieve, a fortiori, the result of laundering sins according to nature. Even an atheist immediately recognises – though he may not admit it to you – the substantial difference between the two situations, because sins that go against natural law are etched in the conscience of every man however big his effort to conceal it.
Therefore, at the Synod we will have a highly explosive mixture of issues which touch the wallet of the heretics and issues which torments them. They have Francis on their side, but Christ is against them.
How thus battle will end in the end, you already know. But we want it to have an end, actually, sooner that “in the end”.
We must continue to denounce adultery as well as sodomy; the faggot priest as well as the avid or simoniacal one; the sins that go with nature as well as those that go against it.
Francis and his army of clowns will not prevail. Not in the end but, preferably, not in October either.
Today is, as every Brit knows, VJ, Victory over Japan day; and as this is a round anniversary, the pomp and rhetoric will be commensurate to the occasion.
What no one seems to ask is how all the soldiers who gave their life for their Fatherland would have felt in knowing that, merely two generations from their sacrifice, not only the Empire would have been lost, but the Country for which they gave their lives would have become worse than heathenish, positively recognising and actively supporting sexual perversion.
Seventy years later the United Kingdom is a Country where perverts can not only contract “civil partnerships” (utterly satanic), or “marry” (the same), but even adopt children (the same, but please add the heightened danger of child abuse).
Would those soldiers have died for a Country like this? Could they have even imagined that things would have reached such a level of moral decay and sexual perversion only decades after their sacrifice?
Today, a Country still wallowing in the feeling of a past greatness, and long downgraded to middle-class regional power with no world policy of its own (whatever influence they still had at least in the Middle East obviously gone since the Gulf War, and I wonder how much was left of that even then), has betrayed not only its own past greatness, but the very Christian foundation – wrong, because Protestant; but Christian nevertheless – of that greatness. The result is unprecedented faggotry flaunted like it’s the latest fashion (another thing faggots clearly like), and made a banner of the new United Kingdom of Sodom and Gomorrha.
Today, this Country has nothing to celebrate. Today, this Country ought to be ashamed, and start a serious reflection on where Satan has been leading it for now many years.
Don’t hold your breath. Prepare for the rhetoric of peace and inclusiveness. Prepare to see Sodom and Gomorrah celebrated as a development of the victory obtained with the blood of soldiers who would have been horrified at what is happening today.
Britain, you won on the battlefield against Germany and Japan. But not only this cost you the Empire, as Hitler in the end broke your spine and your ability to suffer for the sake of something bigger than individual happiness. No, it cost you your soul, as you have started then – and continued to this day – to betray Christian values for the sake of material comfort and a life lived in the immature, ultimately stupid quest of a personal self-fulfillment that can be found only in God.
The Country that only a few years before VJ day had vowed, at one with its brave leader, never to surrender, and to defend their island, whatever the cost may be, must now recognise that Satan has swallowed their island whole, and that they have surrendered to an ideology made of sexual perversion, indifference or open enmity to all that is sacred, and proud of it like Churchill was proud of the Empire.
VJ should be a day of somber reflection, and firm desire to change the Country’s way.
Exactly the contrary will happen.
The Greek have yesterday decided, with an overwhelming majority, that years of overspending (and lying) are not their fault. It's someone else's fault; namely, those bad people and institutions which now demand that they get real.
The Greek might, to some extent, get away with it, though I think their hope are vastly exaggerated. But the Greek are good at the game of shamelessness, and they will extract out of their not so veiled threat of bankruptcy as much as they can. When you are a small member of the monetary union, it can well pay to be a crybaby.
The Greek Attitude is very spread among people who aren't even Greek. They collide with the wall of reality at full speed, and then proceed to blame the wall for being unwelcoming. What all homos, dykes, trannies, and assorted sad spectacles of deformed humanity – not to forget all those to aid and abet them: the relatives, friends, colleagues, and assorted “inclusive” people – do is to embrace the Greek Attitude with relish and declare that no, it's not their fault. You must reshape Truth – that is: Reality – to accommodate them, because the wall they have just smashed their nose against is too unyielding, and uncharitable.
The Greek might, to some extent, get away with their folly, in the sense that their dragging of feet and crybaby stance will get them as much as they could have obtained anyway.
The others will not be as lucky. God does not fear their bankruptcy. Truth, and reality, will not accommodate them in the least.
One can try with the Greek Attitude with Brussels. It's a card that the Greek are – being (cough) Greek – expected to play.
But he is a most foolish man who think he can try with the Greek Atitude with Christ, and get away with it.
We say homosexuality is “intrinsically disordered” at most; mostly, however, we blubber things like everyone being a sinner etc, drowning this extremely grave perversion in an ocean of niceness.
The fags say that we are like slave drivers or Ku Klux Klan members.
Perverts call themselves “gay”.
We call them… “gay”.
Perverts call for so-called “gay marriage”.
We are in favour of civil partnerships.
Guess who will win?
It does not work that way. Thinks must be said straight, and truth must be said whole.
The Western world will start to win again when the call for tough Christian legislation rises again. Sodomy laws, and all that stuff.
You can't say to a pervert that he is such a nice person, only a tad – perhaps; who knows? – more sinful than others; be called a racist pig whilst you don't even dare to call a pervert a pervert; and expect to win.
If one thing should become clear to our inept hierarchy in the dramatic times we are living, it is that “cultural Catholicism” has a limited shelf life of one generation, one and a half at most.
Grandma, born in 1920, was deeply rooted in Catholicism. Catholicism shaped her entire life. Daughter, born in 1950, was much different, but you might not seen very much of it in daily life. There were big differences on several issues, but even Grandma would have called Daughter a Christian, albeit a bad one.
Granddaughter was born in 1980. The values her mother shared never meant much to her. Her mother had a vague feeling that they were good, but she could never really articulate why. She was, herself, not entirely in agreement with her mother on a number of issues; therefore, the granddaughter thought it perfectly legitimate that she also does the same.
Daughter's “cultural Catholicism” consisted in receiving what is comfortable and understood and rejecting what is seriously inconvenient; but granddaughter does not understand why she should accept positions her mother cannot defend herself, and to her everything that causes the slightest riff with her girlfriends is highly inconvenient. The mini m common denomitor is her religion, a vague “goodness” that murders children, but feels very holy.
Grandmothher managed to get to Purgatory. Daughter's fate is far more uncertain. Granddaughter's cards are frankly – unless there is radical change – horrible.
Cultural Catholicism survives for some decades as a fallout of saner times. For one generation or so you will have an army of people who still share much of the building of Catholic values, but do not understand why the building stands in the first place. The following generation will find it more practical, or even moral, to tear the whole building down. It can be as fast as that.
Old people die, young people reach voting age. Your bishop may think the fundamental fabric of Catholicism will remain, but he is a fool. As the old people die, the “why” of things get lost, because the priest prefers to speak like a politician or a social worker, rather than a priest. One generation will do a lot of what was traditionally done without really knowing why; the following one will refuse the doing altogether.
An astonishingly inept (or worse!) clergy thought, all over Southern Europe, that cultural traditions would do for them the work they never had the guts to do. But cultural traditions die in the end, if no one can articulate why they are cherished. The funerals of the old people bury them too, slowly but irresistibly. Unless things change radically, it is only a matter of time before Italy goes to way of Ireland.
In this utter squalor, and in this climate of bankruptcy in many European Countries, we are waiting for the next encyclical of the Evil Clown.
Dedicated to… the environment.
We have seen in the first part of this post that In the modern, secular world everything conspires in exposing your children to homosexual behaviour and – just so we do not think these homos are the innocent flowers – consider it not only normal but, if at all possible, their very own normality.
The conditions for that have never been so favourable since Sodom. You would think homosexuality would vastly increase. It clearly doesn’t. Let us see why.
If you remember the four points of the first part, you will recognise that the goodness in-built by God into everyone of us is very solidly established. Sexual instincts are solidly rooted. It isn’t easy to accustom one to liking crap instead of ice cream. One can see as many TV show as you want, but ice cream is what he will, very probably, still want.
Yes, there are certainly more people who eat crap – or commit acts of sodomy – in, say, England than in, say, Italy, as the strong separation of roles and the generally healthier families and enlarged families in the latter creates better conditions for the proper development of the young. But still, homosexuality isn’t anywhere near “mainstream”.
You Anglo readers, think of your school time, high school, university. How many were the pervs? Very few, I am sure. More than in Italy or Spain? Most certainly. Why is this? Because a better, cleaner environment makes life more difficult for the germs of sexual perversion.
Still, we are talking of small numbers. Between less than half a percent (in solid societies) and around one and a half percent (in broken societies) is what it is reasonable to assume and, coincidentally, what I remember reading on some sound Catholic source. These figures make sense. Even to assume a 3% perversion rate would mean that in every gymnasium class of thirty in your youth there would have been a homosexual or lesbian; which is patently absurd compared with the experience of everyone of us. I struggle to believe that even half that number apply, even in the UK, but again I grew up in a healthy environment. Still, we are talking very small numbers.
This means that an ocean of priests, countless bishops and cardinals, and even a Pope are prostituting themselves like saloon whores to a very, very tiny minority of people who don’t even care a straw for Catholicism, and to the forcibly very small number of their parents.
The numbers are obvious to everyone who has eyes to see, and they tell us that the phenomenon is, whilst shocking in its disgusting depravity, limited in its numbers. If our shepherds had some fear of the Lord, half of the discussions about sexual perversion would not take place, because it would be so easy to silence, isolate, shame and excommunicate thus small bunch of rebellious perverts. Unless…
Unless, that is, the shepherds are so cowardly, that they are afraid to tell a truth inconvenient to 1% of the population at large, and very probably less among Catholics (more intact families, etc.).
Or, alternatively, unless the numbers of homosexuals among priests is vastly, vastly superior to what can be found in society at large and, actually, a substantial multiple of the 0.5 to 1.5 percent already mentioned.
Which latter hypothesis brings, again, all the pieces in their own place: a very tiny minority of perverts, vastly over represented among those who should fight against sexual perversion the most.
The springtime of the Church turned out to have a very shrill voice. But you, you will call the devil’s bluff, and expose the prophets of “mercy” as a bunch of faggots.
The defence of Catholic teaching in matters of homosexual perversion – heard from many corners since October – is certainly encouraging. Still, one cannot but notice one feature typical of all or almost all the interventions: the extreme reluctance to call homosexuality a “sexual perversion”.
Whilst there are not a few prelates who would use words like “intrinsically disordered” – which amounts to the same but said in a way most people will not fully understand – when it is about really making an impact, most of our prelates balk at the “p” word.
This leaves the public in a strange limbo, as they are told that homosexuality is wrong, but they aren’t really told why. Not, at least, in a way that drives the point home.
I am sure a lot of Catholics begin to think the Church condemns homosexuality for some reason that we will never fully grasp, but register it (for now at least) as fact. Apart from the perversion of healthy thinking such a thinking betrays, it makes dissent not all too difficult; actually, it invites it, because when things are not properly explained trouble can never be far away.
Perversion is a simple concept to understand: the thinking of someone whose sexual desire goes in the wrong (per; as in perjury) direction (versio; as in conversion). This is so, as every simple mind understands, irrespective of the person acting on his perversion, or not. The pedophile is a pedophile because he lusts after children; he does not begin to be a pedophile only when he rapes a child. The perversion is there before the action. The action – or the mindset – is particularly grave because it goes – other than, say, gluttony – against what the natural desire should be. Gluttony is the result of a god-given desire gone out of control. Perversion is a desire that must not be there in the first place.
When you put the issue in these simple words, it becomes easier for the faithful to understand the intrinsic depravity of homosexuality. If you keep talking of something “God does not want” without qualifications you are muddling the waters, because gluttony or fornication do not go frontally against the way we are built, but homosexuality, incest or pedophilia do. We also know that even mortal sins have different degrees of gravity; therefore, to invoke the fact that gluttony can induce a man to mortal sin does not help, either.
Clarity is the only way. Pussyfooting around doesn’t help anyone. Let the church abandon the concept of homosexuality as perversion, and your children will be – when sufficiently perverted in their reasoning – unable to understand what the fuss is all about. Hey, they remember when they stole from the cookie jar. That can be a mortal sin too, no?
We need more prelates and simple priests able and willing to pronounce the “p” word instead of using more or less indirect expressions, lacking in clarity and forcefulness even when they do not lack in meaning. We must not allow political correctness to prevent us from clearly expressing what the Church believes. Our shepherds should be the first to tell the truth whole, lest the real message (it’s a sexual perversion) goes lost in the pussyfooting (“God says he’d really like you not to; why it is so beats me, but hey…”).
Clarity creates clear alternatives and demands clear choices. “The Church says homosexuality is a perversion. No, really. This is what the Church believes. What do you say?”
Ten years of this, and things will change radically.
Nothing of this, and I see persecution coming.
