Jesuits. What more is to be said?
The Jesuits who run Amerika Magazine have a homosexualist agenda, that is, the promotion and normalization of sodomy.
Look past the homosexualist fanaticism of Jesuit Fr. James Martin, and you find also the editors of Amerika.
The latest example is found in a self-centered blurb by a “gay” priest who is, I guess, so much happier now that he has outed himself and shared his burden with just about everyone. The priest’s essay is sloppy with sentiments and he is a bit of a mess. That’s not the problem. We all have flaws, principle faults, sinful inclinations, weaknesses, etc. That’s a problem, but that’s not the problem here.
Here’s the problem. Look how the homsexualists of Amerika framed the priest’s essay.
The homosexualists of Amerika subtly promote their pro-sodomy agenda, to normalize sodomy. Even to sacralize it. First, they associate it with priests. Then, in the headline, they associate “gay” (I hate that word) with the Annunciation, the moment the the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. In the essay you read:
“While on a retreat, I shared the truth about my sexuality for the first time with the Jesuit priest assigned as my spiritual director. I prayed that he would help me get back on track. I wanted to learn how to repress these impure thoughts. Instead, Father Paul explained that my sexual orientation is part of who God created me to be. I was and am wholly loved by God.”
God “made” him this way, you see, and this is celebrated on the day, with blatant iconography, of the moment when the Word was made flesh.
This is both blasphemous and sacrilegious.
Blasphemy involves words or gestures, also thoughts, which show contempt for God or dishonor God regardless of whether the person intends that contempt or dishonor or not. Blasphemy is against the virtue of religion and a mortal sin. Blasphemy is direct when it is aimed at God. It is indirect when aimed at Holy Church or the saints or any sacred thing or person or place.
The graphic in the Amerika article, which juxtaposes a beautiful painting of the Annunciation with the “gay (I hate that word) flag is blasphemous.
Sacrilege, also a sin against the virtue of religion, is the improper or irreverent treatment of something sacred (persons, places, things, etc.). Sacrilege can take various forms including acts of violence, or vandalism, or purposeful harm, such as using something sacred for a sinful purpose or monetary gain.
The graphic and the Amerika article itself is an irreverent treatment of something sacred, and they have done it to promote an unholy agenda and to make money.
Concerning the priest himself, I believe that he has done himself and the whole priesthood a grave disservice. He has also allowed himself to be a tool. On the other hand, I take him at his word and respect him for this. He wrote: “Although I never acted on any of my desires, I needed to consciously recommit myself to this way of life in order to live as a priest with integrity.” I choose to believe him.
Furthermore, if he can live with “integrity” after this, then it could very well be that he will have a far higher place in heaven than I ever will. He has been offered a great cross to carry. The graces that come with that great cross will be magnificent.
But for that Jesuit retreat director and the Jesuit homosexualists of Amerika… you have caused great harm and scandal.
