Archbishop Gadecki: ‘Gender Ideology Is Worse Than Marxism’
Polish prelate is denouncing the Kasper proposal and gender ideology
VATICAN CITY, October 6, 2015 (ChurchMilitant.com) – Archbishop Stanislaw Gadecki of Poznan, Poland is denouncing “gender ideology” and the attempt by some German bishops to split doctrine from discipline.
Archbishop Gadecki is well known for his faithfulness to Church teaching. In late September, he and his brother bishops issued a statement in anticipation of the Synod on the Family reasserting Church teaching on marriage and the Eucharist, after having vowed in June to protect those teachings at the Synod.
In a recent interview, Abp. Gadecki upheld Church teaching on marriage and Communion and said gender ideology is “worse than communism.”
Speaking on the Synod, he said all talk of a consensus at the Synod among the bishops is false. There is “no way to create a compromise” between truth and untruth, according to Gadecki. “What compromise can ther already be between truth and untruth?”
Further in the interview, the president of the Polish bishops’ conference said gender ideology is similar to communism because it has “no regard for the human person” as it doesn’t recognize human dignity as Christianity does, and is even worse than Marxism because it is “a pure ideology that is actually bent on destroying marital and familial relationships.”
“By teaching gender theory, the good of having marriage and family is thrown into doubt, the institutions of marriage and family are destroyed by being labeled as ‘oppressive,’ as diminishing humanity rather than growing it.”
He said the ideology may take many forms, but it ultimately has one goal: “the pulverization of society, so that man stays alone and is more easily manipulated.”
“[Its]ideology is clear; it wishes to destroy the matrimonial union and the family,” he stated firmly. “The image portrayed of marriage and the family by the media is tragic. What is presented so many times in the media as family has nothing to do with Christianity.”
The prelate also highlighted the problem of discussing mercy, but with less emphasis on justice, sin and the notion of the truth. “That is a hermeneutic mistake,” he said. “Justice and mercy are inseparable from one another.” A person can experience mercy “by converting, by returning to the House of the Father after staring into the abyss.”
He stressed that “no matter what situation a marriage might find itself in, be it regular or irregular, they must be aware that divine mercy accompanies them, immutably, for it is only in such a setting that they will not revert to guilt but strive to extricate themselves from sin and return to grace.”
“The Church, in a way, serves like a GPS guide for humanity. This means that wherever there is man and where he is getting lost, it is enough for him to come to the Church, and the Church will show him the way to his right end, irrespective of where he is in the world, or his spiritual situation.”
Archbishop Gadecki is currently attending the Synod on the Family in Rome, and is seen by many to be a hero in the fight to uphold Church teaching.

In fact, the decision to admit them to Holy Communion would open the door to this sacrament for all who live in mortal sin. This in turn would lead to the elimination of the Sacrament of Penance and distort the significance of living in the state of sanctifying grace. Moreover, it must be noted that the Church cannot accept the so-called “gradualness of the law” (John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio, 34).
As Pope Francis reminded us, we who are here do not want and do not have power to change the doctrine of the Church.

“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)

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.

Mic’d Up “Pink Money and the Homosexual Mafia”
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. Catechism of Catholic Church teaches that, “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 click below:
Michael Voris talks an in-depth discussion of the true, financial cost of abortion and its effects to the United States. Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that, “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).

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.

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?
