Under another post I wrote, channeling my inner Cato, that the “gay lobby” must be destroyed.
The Viganò Testimony is part of its demolition. They will fight back, as Madame Wile E. Lafarge is already doing.
Right now there is a lot of talk of this “gay lobby” in the Vatican and throughout the Church at many levels. It is predatory, corrupt and fixedly set on self-perpetuation. It is hardly to be questioned that demons are wholly involved, since sins like sodomy result in the fixation of demons in the sinners lives and in the places where the sin is committed.
It is, of course, the depredations by homosexuals who have infiltrated the hierarchy which have caused our problems. Clericalism is not the main problem, it’s only a tool of the predator, a useful add on to their “lifestyle”.
One of the readers asked in the combox:
What is the latin for “Gay Lobby”? We need something to go with “delenda est!”
First, we have to workout what “lobby” means.
In these USA “lobby” is a kind of political entity, a group that advocates with lawmakers for this or that. However, in Italian, where the term using English words came up, “gay lobby”, “lobby” means something different. Years back, in June 2013 – shortly after the abdication of Benedict XVI – I wrote about that HERE.
In 2013 I wrote:
There is a lot of chatter on the interwebs about the whole “homosexuals in the Vatican” thing.
This has been so obvious to me for so long that it isn’t news. It also makes me angry, and not in a good way. I hate reading or writing about it.
I detest this whole story because I suffered at the hands of these types for decades both in my home diocese and in Rome. And to be clear, they weren’t always liberals. Most were liberals and dissenters, but a few here and there were solidly on the traditionalist side which makes them even more loathsome. But most of them were dissidents and liberals and were well networked. And they were vicious to anyone who was conservative. These evil twisted men need prayers for the shameful way they treat the priesthood and the Church and because they risk the eternity of Hell. If I sometimes seem to have little sympathy for homosexuals – including and especially pedophiles – in the priesthood, that’s part of the reason.
Many homosexual priests and bishops strive to live holy lives, truly. While I still think they should have chosen a different vocation, because I think deeply-rooted same-sex attraction makes it too hard to relate properly to the Church as a priest (much less bishop), they have all the sympathy and admiration I can muster. Their cross must be very hard to bear. If they bear it and die a holy death in God’s friendship, I suspect their place in heaven will be very high indeed. However, when homosexual clerics act in the twisted and underhanded ways the whole “gay lobby” issue points to … they don’t get a pass from me just because our wretched society is blindly rushing like a hoard of lemmings towards a “new normal”.
So, that will color my Latin word choice. I refuse to hear “gay” as anything other than what that quondam happy word is meant to cover up.
What about the Italian meaning of their borrow word from English “lobby”?
In Italian, the connotation of “lobby” is far more conspiratorial and negative.
An American sense of lobby would be “gruppi di interesse” (interest groups). In a more negative sense, “poteri forti” (“powerful forces”).
In Italian “gay lobby” is far darker and sinister than it sounds like to Anglophone ears.
So, I will render “gay lobby” for the sake of completing Cato’s thought as:
Praedatorius grex sodomiticus… delendus.
Censeo praedatorium gregem esse delendum.
I’m open to alternatives.
One that I can think of myself would be to substitute masculine grex with feminine manus, hence, Censeo praeditoriam manum delendam. OR… heh… praedatrix manus sodomotica.
BTW… back to that 2013 piece I wrote, which I reread. Another quote:
For decades our society has been slowly but surely and purposely shifted by those in control of the mainstream media and entertainment industry. At first, because of the rise of AIDS, active homosexuals were constantly portrayed as innocent, though perhaps quirky, victims. Once the notion of homosexuality was shifted from its moorings and a new status was created in the minds of the public, another shift took place in the media. Now, TV shows and movies are saturated with homosexuals who are far more sophisticated, with it, intelligent, good looking than their more dysfunctional heterosexual counterparts. Victim time is over. It is cool to be “gay”.
For years an artificial sub-culture was carefully crafted and now it is busting out into a “new normal”. [Their next objective is the lowering of the age of consent. Fr. Z in 2018]
But – contrary to popular opinion – human nature and God’s revealed truths have not changed. Homosexuality is not normal. Christ’s priesthood and homosexuality converging is like pushing misaligned magnets together. It can be done, but it requires force. It is no wonder that some of these misaligned clerics do gawdawful things, especially to other clerics. They are out of sorts with themselves at their deepest core. How they must suffer! That suffering will sometimes come out sideways. Homosexual violent crime is often the most brutal and bloody that the police see. Homosexual clerics usually won’t be physically violent. Their conflicts manifest in other ways.
There is an old macaronic-Latin phrase in clerical circles in Rome: homo homini lupus… sacerdos sacerdoti lupissimus.
That phrase bears filling out. It is from Plautus, if memory serves.
In Rome we would say:
Homo homini lupus.
Mulieri mulieri lupior.
Sacerdos sacerdoti lupissimus.
Not real Latin, but it gets the point across.
