  • How Pope Francis can cleanse the far-right rot from the Catholic Church (BAT $%^& CRAZY ALERT)

    Pope Francis needs to take tougher action against the United States’ most influential Catholic in Rome, Cardinal Raymond “Breitbart” Burke. The renegade cleric is not only undermining Francis’s reformist, compassionate papacy, and gospel teaching as it applies to refugees and Muslims, but the rebel prince of the church is also using his position within the walls of the Vatican to legitimize extremist forces that want to bring down Western liberal democracy, Stephen K. Bannon-style. Simply put, the Vatican is facing a political war between the modernizing Pope Francis and a conservative wing that wants to reassert white Christian dominance. Burke...
  • Skyrocketing lesbian ‘divorce’ rates show failure of same-sex couples imitating marriage

    It seems that women in the U.K. who consider themselves “married” to other women are separating in soaring numbers — at rates higher than actual divorces, which is to say among heterosexual couples, who alone can marry. One lesbian activist, Natalie Drew, blames this uptick in lesbian “divorces” on same-sex “marriage” itself. The Daily Mail reports that “divorces” among same-sex couples increased from 428 in 2018 to 822 in 2019, and of the 2019 figure, almost three quarters are lesbian couples. (There were also 107,599 actual divorces that year in the U.K., an increase of 20% on the previous year.)...

    In a major win for the LGBTQ community, Switzerland lawmakers approved the legalization of same-sex marriage last week. At the same time, the law also allowed transgender people to alter their legal gender at civil registry offices in the country and allows lesbian couples to conceive children using donated sperm, Reuters reports. Despite passing parliament, the same-sex marriage law may have to pass a national referendum in the coming year. However, activists expect a potential referendum to succeed, after a recent survey found support for marriage exceeding 80% in Switzerland. Campaign group Marriage For All posted a statement on their...

    The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to take up an Indiana case seeking to reverse a lower court’s ruling that allows both members of same-sex couples in the state to be listed as parents on the birth certificates of their children. The high court turned aside without comment a petition that Indiana’s attorney general, Curtis Hill, filed with the court last month. Hill had argued for the justices to reverse a January decision by the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals that affirmed a ruling by Indiana’s federal southern district court that said Indiana laws limiting who can be called...

    Official Church teaching describes homosexuality as ‘intrinsically disordered’ and something that ‘can in no case be approved of.’WASHINGTON, D.C., November 19, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — A report released by the Pew Research Center (PRC) shows that a majority of Catholics surveyed in Western Europe, the Americas, and across the world support either homosexual “marriage” or homosexuality as such — contrary to the official teaching of the Catholic Church. The comprehensive report, released earlier this month, focuses on Catholics’ view on homosexuality. Compiling the results of studies conducted over the past few years, the figures demonstrate a wide-scale rejection of Catholic teaching...

    Homosexuals in Ireland believe that Pope Francis should initiate church blessings for same-sex couples. On October 21, 2020, We Are Church Ireland, a Catholic reform group that supports LGBT values, announced that the pope, who spoke out in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage, should initiate a church blessing for these marriages, according to Novenanews.com. We Are Church Ireland said in a press release that the organization "warmly welcomes the excellent news that Pope Francis is supporting civil unions for couples of the same sex." According to representatives of the organization, this is "a very important step for Pope Francis and...

    Catholic Arena ^ | 22nd October 2020 | Catholic Arena
    This morning, the world has been greeted with headlines proclaiming that ‘Pope Francis blesses gay marriage’. It stems from hysteria related to use of older comments in a new documentary about the pope, entitled ‘Francesco’. As with many other similar instances of controversy in the papacy of Francis, such as the ‘Who am I to Judge?’ fiasco, a mix of Francis’s ambiguous speaking style and deliberate lies by the mainstream media are to blame, though this time there is the added aspect of the strange nature of Frances’s documentary. We must also lay some of the blame at the feet...
  • Irrational Fear: Triggered Gay Couples Move Up Their Weddings Fearing Amy Coney Barrett's Confirmation Will End Gay Marriage in America

    Many gay and lesbian couples who are legally married or considering getting legally married are freaking out, fearing that President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett may doom their marriages. Some are even rushing their legal marriages in order to get them in before Barrett can strike them down. These fears are largely irrational, however. Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg led the charge. Buttigieg, a former Democratic presidential candidate who is legally married to another man, told Fox News Sunday that the legality of his marriage is on the line.“My marriage might depend on what is...

    A disciplinary panel of The Episcopal Church has ruled that a bishop who refused to allow the blessing of same-sex marriages in his diocese violated canon law. Bishop William Love of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany was punished last year with a restriction on his ministerial duties after he refused to allow same-sex marriages in his diocese. Love had refused to allow for the enforcement of Resolution B012, a measure passed in 2018 requiring that all Episcopal dioceses allow for the blessing of same-sex unions.

    Voters in Nevada will decide in November whether to change the text of the state Constitution to remove language defining marriage as a union between only one man and one woman. Nevada is one of the about 30 states that passed a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage before such rules were struck down by the 2015 Supreme Court decision, Obergefell v. Hodges, which established a right to same-sex marriage nationwide. However, the text of the amendment remains in the Nevada Constitution even though it is unenforceable. In 2017, former Assemblyman Nelson Araujo and state Sen. David Parks, both Democrats,...

    According to SB 145, the legislation “would exempt from mandatory registration” as a sex offender “a person convicted of certain offenses involving minors if the person is not more than 10 years older than the minor and if that offense is the only one requiring the person to register.” The measure would allow a judge to decide if an adult who engages in oral or anal sex with a child must register as a sex offender if that person is within ten years of the age of the victim.
  • Netflix is SLAMMED for 'sexualizing' children after 'disgusting' trailer for new movie Cuties shows tween girls twerking in crop tops and hot pants - as viewers demand it be BANNED

    DAILY MAIL ^ | 20 AUG 2020 | CHARLIE LANKSTON
    A new Netflix film 'Cuties' has sparked outrage for showing children dressed provocatively and twerking on camera. The French film revolves around an 11-year-old Senegalese Muslim girl named Amy, who joins a twerking competition at school, upsetting her mother and going against her family traditions, while attempting to embrace her 'burgeoning femininity' through 'sensual dance moves'. Despite not yet making it to Netflix, Cuties, which has an NC-17 rating - the US's strictest movie rating that means nobody under the age of 18 can watch it - has already received major backlash for 'hyper-sexualizing' minors thanks to its incredibly provocative...

    Two reports caught my eye this week.One: In 2007, 90 percent of evangelicals said their church forbid (63 percent) or strongly discouraged (27 percent) “homosexual behaviors.” In 2020, that figure has dropped to 65 percent (33.7 percent forbid, while 31.4 percent strongly discourage). Two: In 2008, 34.4 percent of evangelicals between the ages of eighteen and thirty-five supported same-sex marriage. In 2018, that figure had risen to 56.1 percent. Could this data be related? Are evangelical churches changing their position on same-sex marriage to align with and attract younger adults? Are younger evangelicals changing their position on same-sex marriage because...

    A priest has resigned as a parish pastor after he performed a same-sex civil union ceremony in the town hall of the Italian town of Sant’Oreste. The priest is not expected to return to ministry for at least a year. On July 11, Fr Emanuel Moscatelli officiated at a ceremony in which two women, friends of the priest, contracted a civil union, in a ceremony described in the Italian media as a wedding. The priest did not wear liturgical vestments, wearing instead a red, white, and green ceremonial sash, often worn by mayors and other Italian civic officials when conducting...

    When she first welcomed British 'morality' campaigner Mary Whitehouse to her home town of St Louis, Missouri, in December 1972, America's own self-appointed moral guardian, Phyllis Schlafly, might have wondered whether she was looking at a mirror image of herself. Both favouring twin-sets, the two women also sported stiffly lacquered hairstyles — but the similarities between them went far beyond their prim appearance. Middle-aged matrons they might have been, but both were experts at — and relished — riling their opponents. Hugh Carleton-Greene, the BBC's director-general between 1960 and 1969, was so often provoked by Whitehouse that he bought a...

As reported in the New York Times, “A Massachusetts City Decides to Recognize Polyamorous Relationships. The city of Somerville has broadened the definition of domestic partnership to include relationships between three or more adults, expanding access to health care.” Is anyone really surprised?After all, if the winning mantras of the same-sex “marriage” movement have been “Love is love” and “Love wins” and “I have the...

    A professional photographer has filed a lawsuit against a new Virginia law that he says would force him to violate his sincerely held Christian beliefs by requiring him to provide his services to same-sex weddings. Chris Herring filed the lawsuit on Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Norfolk Division, against the newly enacted Virginia Values Act. Signed into law by Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam in April, the law prohibits businesses from engaging in discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The lawsuit is a “pre-enforcement challenge,” as Herring has not yet...

    Wednesday was the final day of voting in Russia on the all but inevitable re-election of President Vladimir Putin to another 12-year term, and on whether or not to formally ban state recognition of same-sex “marriage.” Putin said in February that he would back a national referendum to “clarify some things,” including that “marriage is a union of a man and woman” and that “as long as I am president, we will not have parents #1 and #2, we will have ‘papa’ and ‘mamma.’” The comments were consistent with his past opposition to formal promotion of homosexuality. This week’s amendment,...

    Gay and lesbian weddings have boosted state and local economies by an estimated $3.8 billion since same-sex marriage was legalized nationwide in the United States in 2015, according to a study published on Thursday. Nearly 300,000 gay and lesbian couples have tied the knot since the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage, according to researchers from the Williams Institute at California’s UCLA School of Law. “Marriage equality has changed the lives of same-sex couples and their families,” said the study’s lead author Christy Mallory, state and local policy director at the Williams Institute. “It has also provided...
