The Spiritual Testimony of a “Catholic” Peacemaker

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

Excerpted from Hamilton Bishop Avoids Scandal, Won’t Fund Event With Homosexual Activist Speaker Loney, published Oct 30, 2006, by LifeSite News:

James Loney became a public figure during the time he was held as an Iraqi hostage last year. He revealed his homosexuality during the publicity furor accompanying his eventual safe return from Iraq last spring…

Although claiming to be a Roman Catholic, Loney expressed a profound dislike of Church-related activities such as prayer and Sunday Mass, in an article entitled “Confessions of a Spiritual Couch Potato” written in 2005.

james-loney.jpg“I avoid prayer like the plague–the kind where you stop, sit or kneel, do nothing but be, even if for only ten minutes. It’s agony-in-the-garden every time; the easiest thing is to let the cup pass. The thought of fasting nauseates me, and as for Sunday mass–that weekly spiritual reboot and virus check–well, let’s just say I’ve accumulated a significant inventory of mortal sins.”

HALLELUJAH! Archdiocese Orders Parish to Expel Homosexual “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence”

Monday, October 30th, 2006

In less than 24 hours, Allyson Smith received a response from the Archdiocese of San Francisco, an excellent response for which we are truly grateful! You, too, can make a difference, by being informed, by praying often, and by standing firm for Truth!

Permission to use Ellard Hall should not have been given to the group [the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence].

The Archdiocese of San Francisco has directed the parish to end the arrangement immediately.

For years the group has directed contempt and ridicule at Catholic faith and practices.

The particular targets of the group’s derision are women in religious communities, for whom Catholics, and many non-Catholics, have a special reverence and respect.

Fr. Meriwether is on leave from his duties.

The Politically Incorrect Truth about Homosexuality and Child Sexual Abuse

Monday, October 30th, 2006

From The Politically Incorrect Truth, by Tony Perkins, published Oct 5, 2006, by the Family Research Council:

tony-perkins.jpg In the last few days I’ve worked nearly two dozen media interviews on the scandal surrounding Republican Cong. Mark Foley (R-FL) into an already tight schedule that has had me crisscrossing the country. [View appearance on MSNBC's "Hardball"] The response has been interesting. I’ve been attacked by the Left and some partisans on the Right. One issue that has sent the Left into a tizzy is the point I made in Monday’s Update about the link between male homosexuality and child sexual abuse. The more recent revelation that Foley himself was molested as a teenager, and his lawyer’s acknowledgment that he is indeed a homosexual, simply reinforce a pattern well-attested in the scholarly literature.

For example, the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy found that boys molested by men are almost four times more likely to become homosexual or bisexual than boys who weren’t molested. Homosexual activists don’t want you to know that, because it undermines the myth that people are “born gay.”

Although homosexuals and bisexuals are less than 3% of the male population, male-on-male abuse accounts for about a third of all child molestation.

The Archives of Sexual Behavior reported that “eighty-six percent of offenders against males described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.” Homosexual activists don’t want you to know that either, because it undermines the myth that homosexuality is an entirely harmless “identity,” rather than a psychological and behavioral pathology. Not all homosexuals are child molesters, and not all child molesters are homosexual–but the link is simply too strong to ignore – even if it is politically incorrect.

We should step back and look at what we’ve become as a nation as tolerance and diversity have been made the guidepost for public life. Our children are not even safe in the midst of some of our nation’s leaders. Do we like what we see?

Yep, It’s Normal… Public “Gay” Sex Forces Aussie Store to Close Bathrooms

Monday, October 30th, 2006

This is the lifestyle that is being promoted as “normal.” Is this what you call normal?

Lest you laugh this off as ridiculous, this is not a phenomenon unique to far away lands. Twenty-plus years ago, a department store in Southern Indiana resorted to removing the doors from the stalls in the men’s bathroom because of this behavior. And a homosexual “cruising” website lists similar locations across the world where men can meet for anonymous public sex.

Parents, please think twice about letting your young boys go to the men’s room alone.

Excerpted from Gay Sex Forces Closure of Store Toilets, by Jamie Padaram, published Oct 30, 2006, by The Sydney Morning Herald:

The closure of customer toilets in a Myer store due to rampant homosexual activity has exposed a massive list of venues being used by members of a gay website as hook-up points.

Among the places listed as meeting spots for men “cruising for sex”, on squirt.org, is the Royal Australian Air Force’s Richmond base and Sydney Opera House’s toilets.

Management at Myer’s Sydney city store in Pitt Street were forced to close its level one toilet to the public because homosexuals were using the facility as a meeting point, often having sex in full view of other horrified users.

…The website claims to list more than 15,000 locations around Australia “where gay and bisexual guys meet for sex”… A search of the site yielded hundreds of well-known Sydney buildings, parks and beaches.

Open Letter to Fr. Stephen Meriwether: How Dare You Allow Homosexual Drag Queen “Sisters” at MHR???

Monday, October 30th, 2006

Allyson Smith, a San Diego Catholic pro-life and pro-family advocate, and writer for Americans For Truth, wrote the following open letter to Father Steve Meriwether of Most Holy Redeemer Church in San Francisco:

Sent Oct 30, 2006:

frsteve1.jpgFather Meriwether,

Words fail to express my outrage at finding out that you are allowing the blasphemous sodomite drag queens, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, to use Most Holy Redeemer (located at 100 Diamond Street, Castro District, San Francisco) for their perverted, pornographic bingo games. You are not only the pastor of MHR, you are the CHANCELLOR of the San Francisco Archdiocese!

sister-bea-attitude.jpgsister-merry-peter.jpgsister-edith-myflesh.jpgsister-chastity-boner.jpg

Sister Bea Attitude, Sister Merry Peter, Sister Sister Edith Myflesh, Sister Chastity Boner

How could you – how dare you – allow these perverts to desecrate Most Holy Redeemer by openly parading their abominable homosexual vice in the very same building where the true Most Holy Redeemer, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is present in His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity?

Are you out of your mind – or do you find nothing wrong with this? Do you approve of sodomy, one of the sins that cries out to Heaven for vengeance, and of allowing open sodomites to desecrate our Lord’s Real Presence and His temple? It certainly appears so, as I just called your church and a staffer there, Joey, confirmed that you are aware of these activities and that they are taking place with your approval.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence make endless mockery of our Lord’s sacrifice at Calvary and of good, faithful nuns who spend their lives in prayerful, selfless service to the Church. They openly display their perversion in public streets during “gay pride” parades — and now, apparently, in your own parish. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!

According to an article last month in the San Francisco Bay Times, the SPI bingo games include sexual “punishments” for participants whose cell phones ring or who call a false bingo.

Pastor Ralph Ovadal: “Voting for gay marriage is a sin”

Monday, October 30th, 2006

Published Oct 27, 2006, in West Salem Coulee News:

Soon citizens of Wisconsin will have an opportunity to vote for a constitutional amendment which will ensure that our great state will not have the immoral, illogical, and unnatural absurdity of “same-sex marriage” foisted upon her by activist, unconstitutional judges.

Yes, homosexual “marriage” is all of that and, like homosexuality, is an act of open defiance against Almighty God Himself who “made them male and female” and ordained marriage (Matthew 19:4-6).

The marriage amendment was of necessity proposed in response to a relentless campaign to force homosexual marriage on America, state by state, as has already been done in Massachusetts. National organizations such as the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force have poured resources into Wisconsin with the hope that our state will suffer the infamy and harm of being the first in which an amendment protecting the legal definition of marriage is defeated.

The campaign against the marriage amendment has been nothing less than a theater of the absurd, featuring all manner of nonsensical claims regarding such things as inheritance rights, hospital visitation, and power of attorney.

The legal reality is that a citizen of Wisconsin can bequeath his property to anyone he wishes. He can delegate to any consenting adult medical or financial power of attorney. Likewise, a citizen can designate who should or should not be at his side in a health care crisis.

The most wicked absurdity that has been peddled by the amendment opponents is the audacious claim that God’s Word gives license to homosexual acts and homosexual “marriage.” Nothing could be further from the truth, no matter how some wrest the Scriptures unto their own destruction (2 Peter 3:16).

As a minister of the gospel, I state with no hesitation whatsoever that voting against the marriage amendment would be a sin against God.

Ralph Ovadal is pastor at Pilgrims Covenant Church in Monroe, Wisconsin.

Polls Undercount Support for Same-Sex “Marriage” Ban

Monday, October 30th, 2006

Measures on 5 state ballots likely to pass despite survey results

Excerpted from Polls Undercount Support for Same-Sex Marriage Ban, by Wyatt Buchanon, published Oct 27, 2006, by San Francisco Chronicle:

…Bans are expected to pass Nov. 7 in Idaho, Virginia, South Carolina, South Dakota and Tennessee. The races still appear close in Colorado, Arizona and Wisconsin.

Polls have been published on the proposed constitutional amendments in six of those states, and in all six, the most recent survey showed the bans passing – in Arizona by a margin of 9 percentage points, and in Tennessee by 53 percentage points…

“We’ve seen it, I think, in every single case, that it is underpolled every single time,” said Tom McClusky, vice president of government affairs at the conservative Family Research Council. “I’ve seen higher, but normally we would add 5 to 10 percentage points to any polling.”

Gay rights supporters blame people’s unwillingness to express an anti-gay opinion to a pollster for the discrepancy between polls and the ballot box, and McClusky agrees.

“Queerly Canadian,” Indeed: Students Role-play Sadomasochism in Toronto U.’s “Sexual Diversity” Program

Sunday, October 29th, 2006

From the “we-couldn’t-make-this-up-if-we-tried” department. Only the “gay” academic movement could come up with something this wacky. But hey, why not? It’s just another “sexual orientation.”-- Peter LaBarbera

The following is excerpted from Students Role-play Sadomasochism in Toronto University’s Sexual Diversity Program, by Gudrun Schultz, published Oct 26, 2006, by LifeSite News:

University of Toronto students in the Sexual Diversity Studies Program explore sadomasochism, bondage and domination as part of an “academic” approach to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues, Reuters reported October 20.

Described as “edgy,” the Sexual Diversity Studies program is one of the largest of its kind in North America. Students and teachers defend the program as a serious approach to sexual issues.

“It’s not sexy sex sex, where we’re talking about whips and chains, but we will talk about whips and chains,” graduating student Robbie Morgan told Reuters. “We’ll talk about whips and chains in a political, social, cultural, religious context of sexuality and how that sexuality affects those institutions.”
