On this day, 9/11, when we should all, with damp eyes, wear our war faces, I am conscious of bullying.
There is no question that homosexuals have, in the past and present, been the victims of bullying. That surely is not what Our Lord would want.
I am getting texts and emails from all sorts of sources right now about behind the scenes maneuvering of certain promoters of the homosexualist agenda who are using back channels, as it were, to try to get their critics fired or silenced.
NOW, they are doing the bullying. Why? Because they can. And, ironically, because it suits them.
You would think that – having been bullied – they might think twice about bullying. But, no. Human nature is what it is. Also, speaking of nature – or rather the unnatural – since I stepped off the airplane in Rome and I engaged the Italian switch in my head, I am reminded of a word for homosexuals which comes from the Latin ferox.
Homosexual inclinations are objectively disordered. They can be sinful, if consent of will is given to them. Homosexual acts are always sinful, because they are objectively disordered and against natural law. They are un-natural. To call them anything else is simply wrong.
And, in the midst of all this, I am sent this story from Toronto Catholic:
James Martin S.J. accuses Catholics of being “traditionalist, homophobic, closed-minded…” for not accepting homosexuality
James Martin S.J., in a recent symposium at [Jesuit run] Fordham University, continues his promotion of homosexuality. Martin then turned his attention to Catholics who actually believe what the Church teaches: that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered and gravely sinful.
The following video clip shows James Martin S.J. expressing astonishment that “even the most traditionalist, homophobic, closed-minded Catholic cannot look at my friend and say: that is a loving act…” Oh Jim, Are you really telling Catholics that acts that cry to Heaven for vengeance are loving? Guess God made quite a few BIG mistakes.
Sodomy is never a loving act, dear readers. At best, it is a manifestation of a twisting of the concept of friendship. Otherwise, it is a sinful, disordered act, often of aggression or self-degradation. It is not charity to say that evil is good.
Speaking of a “Jim”, I had some hate mail from a “Jim” today. 99% of my hate mail is from angry homosexuals, by the way. “Jim” is not the Jesuit mentioned, above, nor am I in the least suggesting that he is. In fact, some quick searching reveals that he is a tax accountant or some such in Muskegon.
I don’t like bullies.
And now I read in PJMedia:
UK Speaker: Same-Sex Marriage Won’t Be ‘Proper’ Until Churches Can’t Opt Out
In a shocking attack on religious freedom and even property rights, the speaker of Britain’s House of Commons argued that the country won’t have “proper equal marriage” until churches are unable to turn away requests to host a same-sex marriage.
“I still feel we’ll only have proper equal marriage when you can bloody well get married in a church if you want to do so, without having to fight the church for the equality that should be your right,” John Bercow, the Commons speaker, declared at a PinkNews reception in July.
Britain legalized same-sex marriage in 2013, but Bercow suggested that the LGBT issue will not be settled until churches are unable to refuse to host such weddings. “We don’t want to behave like it’s all over, everything’s been done and nothing remains, because that isn’t true,” he added.
