ProLife & Family Issues

I have been telling my wife and kids and others — that the big persecution coming to Christians will be from the militant Gay Totalitarianism. I am not hateful of gays — to the contrary, I love them like everyone else.

Do I oppose the Gay Lifestyle? Yes. I also oppose other aberrant and perverted lifestyles.

Do I hate gays, of course not! They are human beings created in the image of God like I am and everyone else. But I do not what their agenda pushed down my throat. I don’t want them to succeed in pushing their lifestyle to end up causing the destruction of the family and giving them priority over others. I believe in and support the traditional family and the universally held definition of marriage.

Yes, I am opposed to the militant Gay Lobby and the way they are forcing everyone to — not just approve of their lifestyle — but to celebrate it. If we don’t then we are bigots and hateful and we will be the targets of their new totalitarianism.

This web page will help explain what we as Christians will be up against in the coming years – -and already! Our kids will be the victims.

Read and watch this at your own risk. If you don’t want to be opposed and to suffer persecution — then deny Christ now and join the relativistic, traditional family opposing elite.

Gay Totalitarianism and the Coming Persecution of Christians

This is the hot-button issue of our times and the one most likely to bring persecution to Christians in America. It is not enough that you “approve” of the gay agenda, you have to celebrate it or you will be considered a bigot. In response, most Christians just remain silent or slide along with the crowd. Not me, not Archbishop Chaput, not the Catechism and certainly not rational, informed Americans.

Here is a review in National Catholic Register from awhile ago, but it is an excellent primer on what we are facing with the onslaught of the homosexual agenda and LGBQ. We are Catholics should be prepared to discuss this topic intelligently and compassionately.

PHILADELPHIA — National Catholic Register
Failure to celebrate homosexuality has become a 21st-century “hate crime,” in the view of many in contemporary America; and, consequently, even faithful Catholics have become wary of articulating settled Church teachings about the controversial issue.

But Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, where the World Meeting of Families will be held in September, says Church leaders and other faithful Catholics who shy away from proclaiming or defending Church teaching on this subject out of fear or discomfort are making a big mistake.

“We too easily confuse feelings of compassion and tolerance — which are often worthy in themselves — for the real virtue of charity, which is always anchored in truth.”

As anyone who has tried to defend or explain Catholic teaching on homosexuality knows, the climate for conversation is fraught with misunderstanding and misconceptions.

The mere mention of the Catechism of the Catholic Church’s characterization of homosexual acts as “intrinsically disordered,” for example, is likely to be branded as “hate speech” or, at the very least, as incompatible with a loving Church.

The full context of the Catechism’s passages, which call for “respect, compassion and sensitivity” toward those with same-sex attraction, is easily lost on those whose views have been shaped by a media and homosexual-rights movement that cast the Church as mean and uncaring.  

In San Francisco, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has come under fire for his defense of Church teaching on same-sex “marriage” and other questions, most recently in an open letter to Pope Francis published as a full-page ad in the San Francisco Chronicle April 16. The letter asks the Pope to remove the archbishop and “provide us with a leader true to our values and your namesake.”

Meanwhile, some Catholics, including priests and bishops, have distanced themselves from Church teaching on homosexuality or avoided the topic altogether.

In one such case, when a Catholic school teacher in the Diocese of Metuchen, N.J., was put on administrative leave for posting allegedly “anti-gay” comments on her Facebook page, Bishop Paul Bootkoski declined to answer a question from CNS News asking if he agreed with the Catechism’s teaching on homosexuality. He merely said in a statement, “We have never wavered from our traditional Catholic teachings.”

These are the questions I answered about Raising Sons on Catholic Answers Live. It was a fun show with great questions. We recorded this one a ways back but it is still alive and applicable.

In biblical teaching, it is the father’s responsibility to raise, educate and prepare his sons and daughters to be adults. Today the world, the media and the whole culture treat fathers as idiots and tries to emasculate them. It is time for fathers to stand up and be manly men and good examples and teachers and real fathers for their kids.

***************************************

1)  I have a son who defends the Catholic Church to the death but won’t go to Mass. Do you have any suggestions how to get him to go? (Interesting line this discussion took about the real reason was) — see suggestion below…

 2)  How do you answer boys that say that he or others are born gay?

3)  Do think it is right to let my 5 year old son mingle and play with his older cousins of 10-12 years old?

 4)  What do you tell kids as to why they should go to church?

 5)  I have a 9 year old son. We go to Mass every Sunday and he’s made his first communion but he doesn’t seem interested or participate in the Mass. What should we do?

 6)  My son is discerning a religious vocation. What can I do to encourage this and help him along the way?

 7)  My son is 8 years old and I had to move away for several years for my job. What kind of future problems might I expect?

 8)  My young son of 4 years old says he wants to be a priest. What can I do to encourage him toward a religious vocation?

 9)  My father passed away and I am concerned about my younger brothers who are not practicing their faith. How can I encourage them to go back to church?

 10)  Do you agree it is important to teach our kids they must obey the Ten Commandments? Why didn’t you mention that when answering some of the questions about Sunday and going to church?

 11)  How do you handle small children who can’t sit still or be quiet in church? Should we even take them to church?

 

I received this email after the show:  “You took a call about a boy who was starting to veer away from Mass and veer away from confession. Last Christmas season, a fellow homeschool family wrote a beautiful play called combining Charles Dickens, A Christmas Story and Theology of the Body and the teen group put it on.

I thought it was a perfect story as the central figure has committed some sin that was beginning to draw him away from his friends, family, church etc. The playwright reconciled the end beautifully. This father also turned it into the book, “The Weight of the Mass” with the author’s permission and turned into a beautiful play that the teen group puts on last Easter Season.”

Unfortunately some Christians believe in “pro-choice”; i.e., a woman’s right to determine if she will […]

In the 1850’s – “Pro-slavery” or “Pro-Choice”?

October 16, 2019

“Many in the 1850’s also considered themselves “pro-choice” rather than “pro-slavery”. History repeats itself…”  (Obianuju Ekeocha  Twitter@obianuju) In other words, I am personally against slavery, but I think people (or the states) should have the freedom to choose.

Controversies have always swirled around the Olympics: race, politics and performance-enhancing drugs. The new controversy will be interesting to watch.
