Amid the whole societal push for transgenderism and same-sex “marriage” and every other form of deviant behavior, one argument never allowed to be raised is this: It’s unnatural.
It gets casually and laughingly dismissed by being labeled as “the plumbing argument.” But before those who like to deride “nature” get too caught up in their laughter, perhaps they should stop to think how bad their days would begin if the plumbing in their house was slapped together by a plumber who didn’t follow standard objective procedure when fixing their pipes. What if the hot water was pumped to the cold tap and vice versa, or the shower was rigged to the toilet when you turned it on?
There is something to be said for the plumbing argument, so lightly passed over. In fact, there iseverything to the plumbing argument. Certain things are made to do certain things. Phones exist to be talked on and listened to. They are not made to be back-scratchers, for example.
The bottom line is simply this: Things have a nature. All things have a nature. By nature, what is meant is how a thing acts according to its purpose, or its end. The nature of a thing is inherent to it. And therefore, so are the actions that it engages in. When something or someone acts in a way that frustrates its intended end or purpose, we say, it’s unnatural.
That’s why the Church says of a homosexual tendency that it is DIS-ordered. It means that the proper order is no longer being respected and adhered to; a new order is being set up in opposition to the natural order.
As an aside, it doesn’t mean (as it has been portrayed by the militant gay crowd) that the Church is saying the person is mentally disordered, as sick in the head and unable to function in the world and should be institutionalized. It simply means that the sexual powers are granted for, ordered to — their natural end is procreation. They are established for that purpose.
Any other use of them is wrong. Moreover, the desire to use them in another fashion, for another end or purpose, is DIS-ordered. This is why the word “deviate” is used. The proper order is being deviated from.
In 2010, Pope Benedict said what was wrong with the world today is that human beings no longer have a proper anthropology, an understanding of man and man’s rightly ordered end or purpose — the meaning of his life. In other words, we have lost our understanding of nature — not Mother Nature, as in creation, but nature as in the understanding that people are created with a certain destiny that is inherent to them.
This purpose or end goal establishes within them a certain order in how they relate to themselves and others, the actions that they freely choose. When they choose to act against the end, the meaning of their existence, they are acting in an unnatural manner, when viewed from a supernatural point of view.
Of course, having fallen nature, we often do this. It’s called sin. But the desire to sin is precisely where our nature has become corrupted. It’s why we call it “fallen.” It stands in opposition to the purpose of our lives and, moreover, our eternal destinies.
As the old Baltimore Catechism used to say in answer to the question “Why did God make me?” God made me to know Him, love Him, serve Him and be happy with Him in this life and the next. That is the goal, the end, the purpose. To therefore engage in actions that are in opposition to that stated end goes against our nature, in its pure form, in its intended form.
Man has freedom as part of who he is — his nature — so that he can choose God. To choose something other than God violates his nature as God intended it to be. That’s why these sexual sins are so egregious. They violate God’s plan for us, misusing the powers we have by virtue of our nature to actually subvert our nature.
The evil of transgenderism and homosexual acts are rightfully called unnatural, and because of the failure to understand the true identity of the Church, many clerics simply cannot address this sin in a meaningful manner.

“God himself is the author of marriage” (GS 48:1). The vocation of marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman as they came from the hand of the Creator. Marriage is not a purely human institution despite the many variations it may have undergone through the centuries in different cultures, social structures, and spiritual attitudes (CCC:1603)
FBI Homosexuality. Many believe the Freemasons are simply a centuries-old charitable fraternity. However, the Catholic Church has consistently condemned Freemasonry more than any other error in its history because it promotes indifferentism, naturalism, communism, and other dangerous philosophies.

Michael Voris gives a series of short talks, answering questions coming in response to his talk on homosexuality in Nigeria.
In this talk from Nigeria, Michael Voris speaks about the grave evil presented as good – homosexuality. “Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity (cf. Gen 19:1-29; Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:10; 1 Tim 1:10), tradition has always declared that ‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered” (CDF, Persona humana 8). They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved” (CCC: 2357).
The Cost of Abortion & Contraception Deception
Michael Voris talks an in-depth discussion of the true, financial cost of abortion and its effects to the United States. “The inalienable rights of the person must be recognized and respected by civil society and the political authority. These human rights depend neither on single individuals nor on parents; nor do they represent a concession made by society and the state; they belong to human nature and are inherent in the person by virtue of the creative act from which the person took his origin. Among such fundamental rights one should mention in this regard every human being’s right to life and physical integrity from the moment of conception until death” (CDF, Donum vitae III; CCC: 2273).

CIA: The Rockefeller Foundation
We are used to thinking of the Rockefellers as simply a byword for wealth, power and financial success. Perhaps we might think of them as determined businessmen or see them as great philanthropists. But the truth is far different; the Rockefeller Foundation is actively undermining the Catholic Church, and in the process, attempting to erase man’s natural orientation to the eternal.
Global Warming Unmasked
Are the environmental movements and groups simply devoted to laudable, correct stewardship of God’s creation, or do they have a more sinister, hidden agenda? Is “global warming” being used as an excuse for something far darker? Is the final goal of the liberal elites behind the push of junk science population control, eugenics and Gaia worship?
