Transgenderism: A Leftist Weapon Against the Family

Transgenderism: A Leftist Weapon Against the Family

, SEPTEMBER 20,2017

The Los Angeles Times recently published an approving article about schools’ introducing kindergartners to gender dysphoria (otherwise known as transgenderism). This topic has been much in the news lately, especially after a California charter school—without notifying parents—held a “gender-reveal ceremony” for a confused little boy. The teacher then read to the other children, now confused as well but for other reasons, from a book written by a dysphoric teenager. The Times thinks this is all fine because “experts” from the radical Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) say it is. read more

Feinstein Responds to Backlash by David Nussman  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  September 18, 2017

Calls herself “product of Catholic education”

DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) – Pro-abortion Democrat and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein is trying to save face after backlash to her display of anti-Catholic bigotry.

In a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 6, Feinstein challenged the faith of Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump’s nominee to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The Democratic senator famously said, “I think in your case, professor when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.”

In a Sunday interview on CNN, the senior senator from California responded to accusations of anti-Catholicism. “I am a product of Catholic education,” she began, adding that she “sat in doctrine classes for four years, five days a week” at Convent of the Sacred Heart High School in San Francisco. read more

Bishop Schneider: The Pope is not the ‘owner’ of Catholic truths

September 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — In a recent interview, Bishop Athanasius Schneider said that some of the “ambiguous affirmations” in Amoris Laetitia are “causing a moral and disciplinary anarchy in the life of the Church.”

In an interview with Dr. Maike Hickson for OnePeterFive, Schneider defended Professor Josef Seifert for raising critical questions concerning the controversial papal document.

The theologian was recently fired from his university post by the Archbishop of Granada for doing so. read more

Pro-gay US priest hit over defense of LGBTQ Catholics in latest book

Fox News Author of 'Building a Bridge," James Martin, S.J. shares insight on how the Catholic Church can form a better relationship with the LGBTQ community.

‘Building a Bridge:’ The Catholic Church and LGBTQ community

Author of ‘Building a Bridge,” James Martin, S.J. shares insight on how the Catholic Church can form a better relationship with the LGBTQ community.

When the latest book by the Rev. James Martin, one of Catholicism’s most well-known advocates for legitimizing homosexual activity, hit the shelves, it immediately caused an uproar within the Catholic Church, setting priest against priest and even bishop against bishop.

In “Building a Bridge,” published in June by HarperCollins Publishers, the Jesuit priest calls on Catholics to embrace the LGBTQ community and treat people with “respect, compassion and sensitivity.” While long known for his support of the LGBTQ community, his book intensified an increasingly rancorous debate within the Catholic Church over whether its millennia-old proscription against homosexual activity should be changed.

The celebrity Jesuit hints that the Mother of God was homosexual

Who is Mary according to Scripture? http://www.pagadiandiocese.org/2014/12/02/mariology-who-is-mary-according-to-scripture/  

Father James Martin seems to be implying that the Blessed Mother was a lesbian. In a Facebook tirade posted Tuesday, the pro-gay priest urged Catholics to call their local bishops to complain about so-called hate groups like Church Militant in order to silence them, closing his exhortation by referring to the Holy Spirit as “She.”

“Hope in the Holy Spirit,” Martin wrote. “Things can always improve. And the Holy Spirit knows what She’s doing.” read more

Claims Church teaching on chastity not authoritative if not “received” by LGBT

DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) – Father James Martin is saying that chastity is not required of homosexuals. In a video posted on YouTube on September 20, the Jesuit claims the Church’s teaching on chastity is not binding on the consciences of the faithful because it has not been “received” by the people. It’s a denial of the infallible teaching authority of the Catholic Church in matters of both faith and morals. read more

AUSTRALIAN BISHOPS DIVIDE OVER LEGALIZING GAY MARRIAGE

Some bishops say vote no, some say vote yes and some say it’s not worth fighting over

SYDNEY (ChurchMilitant.com) – The bishops of Australia are divided over whether their country should legalize so-called same-sex marriage.

Archbishop Anthony Fisher of Sydney has teamed up with Dan White, executive director of Sydney Catholic Schools, in urging parents of Catholic students to vote “no” on the national postal survey on same-sex marriage that’s going on now in Australia. In a two-page letter sent to parents Friday, Abp. Fisher related, “We will be voting ‘no’ and encourage you to do the same.” The archbishop affirmed Catholics weren’t bigots for rejecting gay marriage. “Sadly, there has been a campaign to label those who support traditional marriage as ‘bigots’ and ‘homophobes,’ so as to silence all opposition,” noted the archbishop. read more
