Una Cum Apostasy and Corruption
Thomas A. Droleskey
Many, although far from all, of those who insulate themselves in the world of conciliarism have created a veritable fantasy world where it is believed that there are no doctrinal problems with the Novus Ordo Missae and that press reports about the physical molestation of children by priests, some legitimately ordained and some not, steeped in perverse sins against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments are exaggerated and do not represent the "true spirit" of the conciliar structures. Overlooked in this rosy scenario of a world that does not exist is the simple fact is that it is the grave offense given to God by the Novus Ordo Missae that has made possible the continuing spiritual molestation of souls of all ages. This spiritual molestation of souls of all ages is at the foundation of a entire "ecclesiastical" culture of apostasy and corruption.
This culture of corruption has cost various dioceses in the United States of America over a billion dollars in parishioner contributions being paid out to victims of the conciliar bishops' constant, unremitting efforts to protect themselves and their perverted priests and to cover-up their crimes for years and years prior to the explosion of stories in the secular media in early 2002 about this matter. It was not enough for children to be molested physically. Oh, no, they had to be spiritually molested constantly in ostensibly "Catholic" schools by means of the introduction of explicit classroom "sex-education" programs in the 1970s and thereafter, giving a slightly "Catholic" gloss to the anti-purity propaganda of the Sex Information and Education Council of the United States (S.I.E.C.U.S.). The innocence and purity of the young, which Pope Pius XI, sought to protect by prohibiting all classroom instruction in matters pertaining to the Sixth and Ninth Commandments (Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929), Mrs. Randy Engel documented this all very well in her groundbreaking The McHugh Chronicles, which detailed the efforts of then Monsignor James T. McHugh, later to become the conciliar bishop of Camden, New Jersey, and, for an ever-so-brief tenure before he died, of Rockville Centre, to cooperate with Mary Calderone, the co-founder of S.I.E.C.U.S. to introduce explicit classroom "sex-instruction" programs in "Catholic" schools.
Indeed, Mrs. Engel wrote in Catholic Family News several years ago about one of the most commonly used "sex instruction' programs in use in "conciliar" schools, Growing in Love, referred to Mrs. Engel quite rightly as Growing in Filth. Please take the time to read this article,
The Sodimization of Innocence:
Leave it to the Church’s Lavender Lobby! Just when the moral stench of the Clinton-Lewinsky affair has begun to disperse and the air made breathable again, and the crimes of the clerical homo-peds have moved from nightly network news to the more discrete shadowland of out-of-court settlements in chancery offices, along comes the Homosexual Network within the Catholic Church to up the scandal ante with a third generation of sexual catechetics specifically designed to bring the Homosexual Agenda into the Catholic home and grade school.
With the American hierarchy firmly in tow, and after having successfully colonized virtually every seminary, diocese and religious order in the United States, Homo-Church is moving into parish life with a vengeance. And with the parish comes the parochial school with its endless supply of potential new recruits and fresh meat. Forget the old motto of the Rene Guyon (pedophile) Society “sex by eight, or it’s too late.” Now its ‘start at five, why deprive.’
Harcourt Anti-Life Publisher
Growing in Love (GIL), hereafter referred to by this writer as, Growing in Filth (GIF), is the successor to the infamous New Creation sexual catechesis published by William Brown and Co., now called Harcourt Religion Publishers (HRP), that made the rounds of Catholic schools in the 1980s. It bears the Nihil obstat of Rev. Richard L. Schaefer, Censor De Putatus and the imprimatur of Archbishop Jerome Hanus of the Archdiocese of Dubuque (IA). The imprimatur was attached to GIF on January 8, 2000, the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas!
The parent company of Harcourt Religion Publishers, producers and distributors of GIF and other Catholic religious textbooks is Harcourt General, Inc. of Chestnut Hill, Boston a multi-billion dollar anti-life, pro-homosexual publishing conglomerate.
In May 1999, Harcourt’s Health Science Company, Churchill Livingston, produced A Clinician’s Guide to Medical and Surgical Abortion - the first how-to-kill unborn children manual to be published in the United States in over fifteen years. Unlike Harcourt’s Catholic HRP textbooks, the Harcourt abortion text carries the imprimatur of National Abortion Federation. Other Harcourt publications promote population control, contraception, sterilization, arbortifacient chemicals and devices, eugenics, and “gay and lesbian” studies. (1) Harcourt also participates in Planned Parenthood’s employer matching donor plan.
Clearly, Harcourt is neither a friend of the Roman Catholic Church or of the unborn child. Just as clear is the fact that Catholic bishops and parochial school administrators should not be filling the coffers of the killer conglomerate but patronizing HRP. As for the imprimatur found on HRP catechetical texts, it is as appropriate for Catholics as a Jewish good-housekeeping seal would be for I.G. Farben. (2)
Opening the Door to Vice
Growing in Filth not only represents an important paradigm shift in the degree of perversity in Catholic sex instruction programs, but also a marked shift in the nature of sexual acts described in such curriculums, that is, a shift from almost exclusive heterosexual practices to those of “gays” and “lesbians.” In the matter of the moral formation of Catholic youth instead of employing “those remedies which produce the double effect of opening the door to the virtue of purity and closing the door upon vice,” (3) GIF opens the door to vice while driving out the virtue of purity.
Growing in Love puts sex in the form of child’s play. The problem, of course is, that while the child is being subtly seduced to engage in adult sexual behavior, there is no comparable development at an emotional and psychological level. This artificially produced sexual stimulation interferes with the child’s normal maturation process. Particularly harmful is the unrelenting attempt of the authors of GIF to focus the young child’s mind and imagination on the sexual acts of their parents. The placement of such voyeuristic fantasies in the impressionable mind of a child can lead to perverted fixations and sexual neurosis in later life.
As in all sexual conditioning programs, the child is robbed of his right to be a child as the latency period is systematically destroyed. Both his spiritual life and intellectual life are truncated and overshadowed by a precocious and unnatural sensuality. The child is being turned from his final end who is God and taught to worship the gods of sensual pleasure and vice. Whatever the damage assessment, the child will never be what he could have been had be not been subject to such programs. (4)
The purulent obsession of GIF’s authors with genitalia, and natural and unnatural sexual techniques reveals much more about the authors’ motivations, I think, than they intended. As George Orwell observed: “There are things so foolish, that only intellectuals can believe them.”
The authors of GIF also reveal their ignorance of human nature in thinking that by giving the young child a detailed organ recital they are somehow communicating to him the great mystery of the marital act whereby “two become one flesh.” For children, as we know, are keen observers but poor interpreters. They are more likely to associate the marital act, as described in GIF, as an act of aggression against the mother by the father, than an act of love. A child can learn more about the true meaning of love through the daily sacrifices of his parents, or listening to great classics like J.R.R.Tolkin’s The Lord of the Rings or simply by gazing at crucifix than he’s ever learn in a “sex education class.” But then again, love, is not what “sex education” is all about is it?
A Strong Homosexual Bias
Interestingly, it is Harcourt itself, which alerts us to the homosexual overtures to be found in GIF.
On its Catechetical Research web site for Growing in Filth, Toinette M. Eugene, Ph.D., a consultant for the GIF program states that, “racism, sexism and HOMOPHOBIA, and other socially isolating evidence of social sinfulness are addressed thoughtfully, explicitly, and carefully.” [emphasis added]. (5)
Now the term “homophobic” is a gay political verbal construct. In the homosexual manifesto Jesus Acted Up, ex-Jesuit homosexual, Dr. Robert Goss, defines “homophobia” as “the socialized state of fear, threat, aversion, prejudice, and irrational hated of the feelings of same-sex attractions” which can be held by “individuals, groups, social institutions, and cultural practices.” And the most influential purveyor of the “sin” of “homophobia” is, of course, the Roman Catholic Church. (6)
Clearly, both Eugene and HRP welcome pro-homosexual propaganda which is why the morally sordid paw prints of the Homosexual Movement are found all over the pages of Growing in Filth.
Starting With Grade K
The following brief comments are based on a selection of pages from GIF Family Resource (FR), Student (S) and Teacher (T) manuals. Many sections are repeated verbatim for other grade levels. Please note that experience has shown that explicit sexual materials found in adult texts, always find their way to the school children especially to the more sexually sophisticated student who is drawn to matters of an adult prohibitive nature. This material is then filtered down to the younger, more innocent child, so that few, if any children, are left morally and spiritually unscathed. Also remember that when the classroom door is closed the teacher IS the text.
What Does Being ‘Gay’ Mean?
In GIF’s FR section for parents with kindergarten children, ages 5 to 6, following a general description of what “having sex” means and what married people do in bed, parents are told how to respond to their child’s question about “gays.”
People, who are gay, or homosexual, are sexually attracted to people of their own gender instead of the other gender. A man who is gay loves another man. A woman, who is gay, or lesbian, loves another woman. Some children grow up in families where the adults are homosexual partners, although people who are gay are not allowed to be legally married to one another…”
The first thing one notices in this description of unnatural sex is the use the politically loaded term “gay” – the language of homo-agit-prop.
Secondly, coming as it does on the heels of a description of conjugal love between man and wife, the implication is clear – homosexuals do what loving heterosexual do, the only difference being that they do it with a person of the same sex.
How dare the authors of GIF compare the narcissistic and ego egocentric scratching of an erotic itch with the marriage act! For Catholics, marriage is a sacrament and conjugal love is blessed by the Church while homosexual acts are an unnatural perversion and condemned by the Church. The two cannot be equated in any sense.
Of course, the authors of GIF know that most Catholic parents haven’t the foggiest notion of what homosexuals do in bed or baths. And the authors are content to keep them in a state of ignorant bliss so that they can convince parent and child alike, that homosexual sex is pretty much normal sex. But it is not!
Homosexual acts are esthetically disgusting, morally degrading and biologically disastrous. Further, whereas monogamy is the ideal (if not the practice) among most heterosexuals, rampant promiscuity and anonymous sex is the preference of homosexuals, at least until the age of 30 or 35, at which time they begin to suffer from the homosexual-inflicted ageism (as in sexism).
Proponents of GIF say that this religious curriculum is about “healthy relationships,” but the homosexual “lifestyle” is really a “deathstyle.” When one adds to homosexual practices the degrading reality of the urban homosexual milieu with its prostitution, pornography, the occult, drugs, organized crime, homosexual domestic violence, and murder and mayhem., it’s clear why the authors don’t want to “out” the truth about homosexual behavior. (7) “Donna” may be amusing to the casual heterosexual observer when “she” prances and camps around in an effeminate manner with her falsetto voice and limp wrist (as in Will and Grace) but when he, that is “Donald” kills, he kills like a man, and the mutilated corpse he leaves behind is far from amusing to look upon.
GIF’s homo-agit-prop continues later in the text with the discussion about “nontraditional living situations.”
Homosexual cohabitation and the adoption of a child by two homosexuals are perverse practices. Homosexuals live in a fantasy world and “playing house” or playing “mommy and daddy” or “butch and femme” is part of that fantasy world. In such sad cases, the adopted child is the looser. Until rather recently, the Church opposed adoption by homosexual partners but that opposition has begun to erode under the relentless pressure of the Homosexual Lobby.
As for the matter of artificial insemination, the text in no way indicates that this practice is absolutely condemned by the Church – for both heterosexuals and homosexuals. This omission alone, which should have been picked up by the censor from the Archdiocese of Dubuque, is enough to prevent Harcourt from procuring an imprimatur.
Kindergarten Organ Recital
Throughout the entire early grade glossary we find the proverbial “organ recital” that Catholic sexual catechesis have become famous for. As the grade levels rise, so does the number of exotic sexual references. The repetitive emphasis on certain parts of the female genitalia in GIF is no doubt a reflection of the growing interest of lesbians, including lesbian nuns, in sex instruction programs for children particularly for young girls. (8)
At the third grade level, parents of children seven to eight are encouraged to give their child a very explicit description of the marriage act. The authors of GIF also provide a comprehensive and explicit sexologist’s description of all forms of sexual stimulation.
Oh! How I yearn for the good old days when Catholic schools taught that an “ejaculation” was a short prayer taught to children and youth such as “My Lord and My God?”
HIV and AIDS
According to the authors, parents of second grade children should educate their young children about AIDS:
… Most children are aware that AIDS is a serious, life-threatening disease, and some children may associate HIV infection and AIDS with a sense of social stigma (as in illicit or perverted sexual behavior?). In early childhood it's most important that your child gain a clear idea of what AIDS is and how he or she can avoid infection….
This is pure nonsense and the authors of GIF must know it, unless they need an excuse to discuss homosexual behavior and drug use. After almost two decades of research, scientists still not have unraveled the complex mysterious of AIDS. But a small child is expected to have “a clear idea of what AIDS is…”
Poor Biology and Dangerous Theology
In the FR book for third grade level students, under a section titled, “What is sexual intercourse?” parents given an explicit description of the marital act and the act of conception. The last two sentences read:
"…If there is an egg cell present, a sperm cell may join with it to conceive a new life. If the fertilized egg implants itself in the uterus, the woman becomes pregnant…”
Did you notice anything interesting about that last sentence? According to the authors of GIF implantation (not conception) marks the beginning of a woman’s pregnancy. This is of course a patent deception – a lie!
The first moment of every human being’s life is the moment of fertilization or conception. Then, almost immediately, the fertilized egg splits into a two-cell embryo, then a three-cell embryo, then a four-cell embryo and thereafter continues in multiples of two. By the time the growing embryo nests in his mother’s uterus, she (the mother) has been pregnant for at least one week. Here biology and theology agree perfectly.
So why do the authors of GIF claim otherwise? Why do they use a verbal sight-of-hand to redefine pregnancy as beginning at implantation rather than at fertilization or conception?
From a practical view, I suspect this deception would enable the authors to categorize, both for parents and students, early chemical or mechanical abortifacients such as intra-uterine-devices (IUDs) or post-coital pills as “contraceptives.”
From a theological point of view, the authors’ deception would certainly serve to undermine the Roman Catholic Church’s doctrine of the Incarnation – that God became Man at the moment of His conception as well as the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception – that Our Lady was free from original sin from the moment of her conception.
Catholic belief in the Incarnation is why, at least until the promulgation of the Novos Ordo by Pope Paul VI, we genuflected as we professed the Nicene Creed –
“Who for us men, and our salvation, came down from heaven [here all kneel] AND WAS INCARNATE BY THE HOLY GHOST OF THE VIRGIN MARY AND WAS MADE MAN.” [all rise]
Again, how did Growing in Filth rate an imprimatur?
Also, at the third grade level, the FR book tells parents how to give step-by-step instructions to their little children on the subject of solitary and mutual masturbation. I thought it was a “nice” touch that the authors were considerate enough to remind parents that such acts are better accomplished, “by reading or watching sexually graphic materials,” that is pornography. Double the vice, double the pleasure! Can’t beat that for a “Family Resource!”
For fifth graders, the parent-child discourse provides a detailed description of acts leading up to the conjugal union along with some anti-life birth control propaganda. There is also another reference to heterosexuality as a “tendency” and homosexuality as also a “tendency,” in the fifth grade student activity book. Never mind that heterosexuality is a biological norm for the human species and homosexuality is a perversion of that norm.
That Lewinsky-Clinton Thing
In the FR text for parents of fifth graders, mom and dad are briefed on every salacious detail they might have missed when the Lewinsky-Clinton affair made news headlines around the world in 1999. The description covers heterosexual as well as homosexual deviant acts. But parents are assured that these acts are something that both heterosexuals and homosexuals enjoy.
It may be that, when the battle over GIF reaches Rome and the Congregation for Christian Doctrine, the CCD will declare that there is “no doctrinal error here” as it did with the New Creation series. (9) But I think the average Catholic who is not brain-dead would fine this description of perverted sex unfit for any person regardless of age.
And what will the final outcome be at the end of thirteen years of this sexual filth and homoerotic propaganda in Catholic grade schools and secondary schools? It will, in the words of psychiatrist Dr. Melvin Anchell be the emergence of a “horde culture,” characterized by “sexual indulgence and devoid of love.” Where the “indoctrinated show no guilt, nor do they display concern for morality.” (10) They will indeed be the new barbarians!
American Bishops Capitulate to the Spirit of the World
Most Catholics probably don’t remember the last time they heard the American bishops raise their voices to condemn classroom sex instruction programs. That is because that event happened over fifty years ago on November 17, 1950.
At that time, the bishops acting in unison under the umbrella of the old National Catholic Welfare Conference (NCWC) issued a formal statement supporting the traditional Magisterial position in opposition to classroom sex instruction. After asserting that parents have both the “natural competence” and “duty” to instruct their children in matters related to sex, the bishops closed with …”We protest in the strongest terms against the introduction of sex instruction into the schools.” (11)
Less than a year later, and again in 1953, Pope Pius XII also sounded the alarm against the creeping invasion of sex instruction into the classroom and called upon an assembly of French Fathers and Families to “unite… with your bishop certainly… in order to fight together…to stop and curtail these movements (sex initiation) under whatever name or under whatever patronage they conceal themselves or are patronized.” (12)
Unfortunately, by the mid-1960s, with the rise of AmChurch and the replacement of the NCWC by the post-conciliar National Conference of Catholic Bishops/United States Catholic Conference (NCCB/USCC), the American bishops suffered an attack of collective lockjaw, and with few exceptions, they have been silent ever since.
In 1967-1968 the bishops handed over the NCCB/USCC Family Life Bureau in Washington, D.C. to young Rev. Joseph Bernardin’s protégé, Father James T. McHugh, who became the Great Architect of classroom sex instruction. (13) In short order, so called sex education, modeled after SIECUS/ASSECT/ Planned Parenthood anti-life programs, (14) was moved from the “condemned” to the “enthusiastically-supported and promoted” side of the catechetical ledger. At the same time, over at the NCCB/USCC’s Office of Education, traditional catechetics were being trashed and replaced with Modernist textbooks. This double whammy would insure an upcoming generation of Catholics who would be illiterate in the Faith but candidates for a doctorate in Sexology.
In 1968, in their pastoral letter Human Life In Our Day, the American bishops placed their seal of approval on Fr. McHugh’s sexualization agenda for Catholic school children and youth. “Systematic” sex instruction programs for parochial and CCD students (many already in place and running) were now mandated as a “grave obligation.”
Between that time and the present day, the NCCB/USCC have released a litany of pro-sex initiation documents and “guidelines” which the major catechetical publishing houses have dutifully translated into religious sex programs like GIF. In their defiance of the Magisterial teaching of the Church prohibiting classroom sex curriculums, and in their support of sexual catechesis, the American bishops as a whole have demonstrated a long-standing and complete abdication in front of the spirit of the world.
Rome – The Sex Ed Buck Stops Here
Sadly, the American bishops’ four decade campaign of attacking the innocence of Catholic school children cannot be dismissed as a mere domestic aberration in the Church of a wayward National Episcopal Conference. The Roman Catholic Church as founded by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is a hierarchical church. Therefore, every major crisis in the Church today, from the systematic rape of the Liturgy to the rape of children’s souls by, can be traced to its root cause [as well as its ultimate cure] to Rome and laid at the foot of the Papacy and the Holy Office.
The last pontiff to publicly defend, without ambiguity, the ruling of Pope Pius XI against classroom sex initiation programs was Pope Pius XII who proclaimed, “…these rules have not been rescinded, either expressly or via facti.” (15) Since his death in 1958, no pontiff or Vatican discastery has seen fit to either reaffirm or enforce the 1929 rulings.
Educational Guidance in Human Love
Vatican Gives “Green Light” to Sex Ed
On December 1, 1983, the Sacred Congregation for Catholic Institutions (Education), in reaction to the constant stream of sex-porn reaching Catholic school children under the guise of Catholic “sex education,” released a pivotal document on the issue titled, Educational Guidance In Human Love [EGHL]. In my book, Sex Education – The Final Plague, I devote an entire chapter to EGHL because it typifies the manner in which Rome has dealt with this issue since 1958.
When EGHL was initially released in the United States, Father Thomas Lynch, Father McHugh’s replacement at the Family Life Office, praised the document, which he said “gave a creative green light to sex education.” The NCCB/USCC Committee for Pro-Life Affairs likewise claimed EGHL provided “a theological foundation and moral principles, which guide the development of such programs in parochial schools.”
Interesting as it is telling, however, it was the Planned Parenthood clone, Center for Population Options, and not the NCCB/USCC, that publicly recognized that EGHL marked a departure from the Vatican’s Magisterial teaching prohibiting classroom sex instruction. According to the CPO, the document represented the first official support from the Vatican for “positive” classroom sex instruction. It also noted that it may serve to silence Catholic opponents of sex education in both parochial and public schools and concludes that EGHL has already opened up a “new dialogue” between sex education advocates (i.e., SIECUS, AASECT and Planned Parenthood) and the Catholic Church.
Undermining the Magisterium
The tactics used by the drafters of EGHL (Father McHugh was the Vatican’s “expert” from the United States) follow the familiar Modernist tactic of undermining a Magisterial teaching without actually denying it.
First, they radically redefined the term “sex education” divorcing it completely from its historical roots, its well-known anti-life, anti-family nature and its primary function – to produce polymorphous perverts. Then, having redefined the normative meaning of "sex education" beyond recognition, the framers of EGHL proclaimed that Pope Pius XI correctly "declared erroneous the sex education which was presented at THAT TIME, which was information of a naturalist character, precociously, and indiscriminately imparted."(emphasis added) (16) The new school sex programs were no longer “naturalistic” because they were now incorporated into religious catechetical programs, hence the term “sexual catechetics.” Therefore, they no longer fall within purview of the 1929 ban. EGHL concluded with a challenge to Christian educators to take up the “positive” work of sex education!
Unhappily, the opponents of classroom sex instruction could claim only a few supporters from the Catholic hierarchy. Among them were Bishop Austin Vaughan, Auxiliary bishop of New York and Edouard Cardinal Gagnon, President of the Pontifical Council for the Family. The former attacked the November 1990 sex education “guidelines” developed by a secret in-house Sex Education Committee of the NCCB/USCC and the latter attacked the New Creation series at the Vatican in 1989 and was rewarded with a back-handed slap in the face by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
The Truth and Meaning of Human Sexuality
More Vatican Subterfuge
With the publication of EGHL, pro-sex education forces, within and without the Church, thought the controversy was laid to rest. But they were wrong. The battle raged on.
So it was that in 1995, the Vatican tried its hand again at damage control once again with The Truth and Meaning of Human Love (TMHS) issued by the Pontifical Council for the Family now under the direction of Cardinal Lopez Trujillo.
Initially the PCF document was hailed by some Catholic anti-sex ed groups as one that would finally “pull the plug” on parochial school sex curriculums. There were at least two groups however that publicly opposed TMHS – Parents Roundtable headed by Marie Zaccaria and the U.S. Coalition for Life, headed by this writer. I think time has vindicated the latter.
Since the publication of TMHS, no sex program in use in the United States has been recalled. Indeed we now have added to the sex curriculum repertoire the most perverse program to hit the Catholic home and school scene in almost forty years – Growing in Filth.
Why didn’t Parents Roundtable and the USCL back TMHS? Simply because in the 30,000 worded document with the usual assurances about parental rights, and “opting out” of objectionable courses, etc., the only word that could help return sanctity and sanity to Catholic religious education was conspicuous by its absence. That word is NO!
Father McHugh (by now a bishop) confirmed this opinion when he informed opponents of classroom sex programs that TMHS could NOT be used to make their case because the document does NOT ban sex education. On the contrary, he stated that TMHS was not intended to prohibit such programs because that would be contrary to church policy, which, he said had given birth to many good programs in the schools.
What Lies Ahead
In all probability, when Benziger issued its Becoming A Person sex program more than thirty year ago, parents thought – “It can’t get much worse!” Then along came William Brown and Co. with New Creation and parents saw it can get worse. Now New Creation is being replaced with Growing in Filth and outraged Catholic parents like those from the diocese of Syracuse, N. Y., are screaming – “This is it! Can anything be worse?”
The answer of course is YES! Homo Church is just warming up! It has a full agenda just waiting to be activated in parochial schools and Catholic students will obviously be at the receiving end of their educational probes.
As noted earlier, there are many types of homosexual behavior that GIF does not specifically mention. Parents can realistically anticipate that these will find their way into the Catholic classroom at all levels if the level of influence of the Homosexual Network is permitted to grow within the Church.
In terms of revisionist Scripture studies, Homo Church will inform your children that the sin of Sodom was the sin of “inhospitality,” not sodomy. Likewise your children will be told that they must “re-vision” God as Erotic Power and that the “Eucharistic meal is an act of defiance against homophobic oppression.” (17)
How will you react to a lesbian crucifix with a female corpus being brought in for a retreat run by lesbian nuns for your teenage daughter or granddaughter? (18)
How will you react when your child come home and asks you if Christ was a homosexual and about his “special” relationships with St. John and Lazarus? (19)
Think about it! And then for God’s sake and those of future generations of Catholic school children Act upon it!
Demand a Total Ban from Rome!
All Catholics, but parents and grandparents in particular, need to express an immediate sense of outrage over so-called Catholic “sexual catechetics.” And Growing in Filth is as good a vehicle to express that outrage as any that has been produced over the last forty years.
There is much we can do to drive the Homosexual Movement back into the shadows, but certainly depriving the movement of our sons and daughters should be at the top of that list. The USCL program outlined below is not intended to be an end all solution to the mani-fold problems facing the Church today, but demanding and getting theologically and morally degrading religious texts OUT of Catholic schools and bringing traditional doctrinal catechetics BACK INTO our schools seems to me to be a good start. Let us follow Pope Pius XII’s advice! Let Catholics everywhere unite behind a total ban on classroom sex programs, under whatever ugly guise they raise their heads, because time is running out for us – IT’S NOW OR NEVER!
As we know, of course, the counterfeit church of conciliarism that is headquartered in the Vatican until the day Our Blessed Mother manifests the Triumph of her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart has done nothing to ban the programs that are in almost every conciliar school in the United States of America. There is not a single diocese in conciliar captivity in the United States of America that does not have some form of this explicit classroom instruction in matters pertaining to the Sixth and Ninth Commandments. Just as has happened with the Catholic Church's consistent condemnation of such things as ecumenism and religious liberty and separation of Church and State, the wisdom of Pope Pius XI's absolute prohibition against such attacks on the innocence and purity of children has been consigned to the Orwellian memory hole:
Another very grave danger is that naturalism which nowadays invades the field of education in that most delicate matter of purity of morals. Far too common is the error of those who with dangerous assurance and under an ugly term propagate a so-called sex-education, falsely imagining they can forearm youths against the dangers of sensuality by means purely natural, such as a foolhardy initiation and precautionary instruction for all indiscriminately, even in public; and, worse still, by exposing them at an early age to the occasions, in order to accustom them, so it is argued, and as it were to harden them against such dangers.
Such persons grievously err in refusing to recognize the inborn weakness of human nature, and the law of which the Apostle speaks, fighting against the law of the mind; and also in ignoring the experience of facts, from which it is clear that, particularly in young people, evil practices are the effect not so much of ignorance of intellect as of weakness of a will exposed to dangerous occasions, and unsupported by the means of grace.
In this extremely delicate matter, if, all things considered, some private instruction is found necessary and opportune, from those who hold from God the commission to teach and who have the grace of state, every precaution must be taken. Such precautions are well known in traditional Christian education, and are adequately described by Antoniano cited above, when he says:
Such is our misery and inclination to sin, that often in the very things considered to be remedies against sin, we find occasions for and inducements to sin itself. Hence it is of the highest importance that a good father, while discussing with his son a matter so delicate, should be well on his guard and not descend to details, nor refer to the various ways in which this infernal hydra destroys with its poison so large a portion of the world; otherwise it may happen that instead of extinguishing this fire, he unwittingly stirs or kindles it in the simple and tender heart of the child. Speaking generally, during the period of childhood it suffices to employ those remedies which produce the double effect of opening the door to the virtue of purity and closing the door upon vice.
As "excitement" in the conciliar structures builds in anticipation of the release of Ratzinger's "motu proprio" "liberating" the offering of the modernized version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition that was the norm in the conciliar church for precisely three years before it was replaced by the Ordo Missae of 1965, it should be pointed out that those in the religious life (indult communities of priests and consecrated religious) who want to be "una cum" (one with) the conciliar bishops (none of whom are true bishops) must be silent about the attacks upon the innocence and purity of the young by means of classroom sex instruction. They must be silent as perversity is promoted in the classrooms of conciliar schools in the name of "tolerance" and "diversity." They must be silent as young souls are taught that immodest attire that demeans their own dignity and is a near occasion for sin for another is actually not immodest at all and is completely appropriate to be worn to what purports to be the offering of Holy Mass. They must be silent as the man, Guy Sebastian, who has been commissioned to write the "official song," "Receive the Power," for the travesty known as "World Youth Day 2008" admits that he has "no problem" with "gay marriage":
There was a mini-debate about you saying you had a lot of gay friends and so were offended by the word "faggot", but that homosexuality surely clashes with your Christian beliefs?
That's the sad side of Christianity. That's not how it's meant to be. I've been to gay clubs heaps of times. That's the old fundamentalist way of thinking that's unfortunately spread through all these generations. They miss the whole point of Christianity which is love. God loves people whether they are black, white, gay, straight, bisexual, whatever. As a Christian, we're never going to get close to being sinless or perfect, and I'm no better than anybody on this earth, but our No.1 goal is to be as loving as we can. We aim to be like God, so for me, I think that's a really ugly side of when people get lost in religion. It's funny, Shannon (Noll) gets called that, Anthony (Callea), all my friends in the industry. That's the word everyone picks -- as soon as you're in the industry you're gay.
You're not anti gay marriage?
I'm not really anti anything. If you're a gay couple why not? I don't really have a stance because I don't know what it's like to be told you're not allowed to marry somebody. That doesn't seem fair to me. (http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,20643637-2902,00.html
Our Lord spoke quite firmly about what happens to those who lead even one of his little ones astray and scandalizes them:
But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh. And if thy hand, or thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee to go into life maimed or lame, than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee having one eye to enter into life, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. (Mt. 18: 6-10.)
Can anyone assert with a straight face that there has not been a systematic spiritual, moral and physical corruption of souls taking place in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism for the past nearly forty years? How can anyone in the religious life accept "silence" on this matter in exchange for being in "good standing" with men who reject entire articles of the Catholic Faith and who continue to promote perversity as they corrupt the innocence and purity of the young (as well as souls of all ages)?
Remember that it has been the fear of even more facts of the cover-up and corruption of perverted "clergy" being put into the record in depositions connected to civil litigation filed by victims of said "clergy" that prompted several dioceses to seek protection in bankruptcy protection. The story of the Diocese of Spokane is typical:
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- The Spokane Catholic Diocese has agreed to pay at least $48 million to people molested by priests as a part of a deal to emerge from bankruptcy, a federal mediator announced Thursday.
Federal Bankruptcy Judge Gregg W. Zive in Reno, Nev., said the settlement would provide survivors "with some measure of closure and allow them to move forward and continue the healing process."
The proposed reorganization plan was filed in federal bankruptcy court in Spokane. It still must be approved by victims and another bankruptcy judge.
Church spokesman Eric Meisfjord said the diocese would have no immediate comment.
The settlement would be financed by $20 million from six insurance carriers; another $18 million from the sale of the bishop's office building and other assets and contributions from Catholic entities; and $10 million from the diocese's 82 parishes, Zive said.
The settlement does not include specific numbers of victims or individual amounts to be paid, but establishes a process for distributing the money, as well as a means for paying victims who have not yet filed claims, Zive said.
About 150 individual claims were filed against the diocese as part of the bankruptcy, although not all of those people chose to sue.
In addition to helping abuse victims, Zive said, the settlement would allow the diocese "to continue its ministry and to begin its own journey of renewal, healing and hope."
The diocese serves about 90,000 Catholics in eastern Washington. It filed for bankruptcy protection in 2004, citing claims by abuse victims of about $81.3 million against assets of about $11 million.
The settlement requires Spokane Bishop William Skylstad to publicly support eliminating statutes of limitations on child sex crimes and to personally visit each parish where children were abused to urge parishioners to come forward with reports of abuse, according to court documents.
Skylstad must also send letters of apology to victims or their immediate families; publish the names of all known abusers; allow victims to publicly address the parishes where they were sexually abused; and to publish their stories in the diocesan newspaper.
Mike Ross, an officer of the Spokane chapter of the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests, a national organization of clergy abuse victims, said victims were "not thrilled with this deal." Many of them "will never see their day in court and that's truly what they wanted," Ross said.
Skylstad is president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. He was among clergy accused of sexual abuse in the bankruptcy claims, but has denied allegations that he had sexual relations with a woman in the 1960s.
The settlement is slightly more than the $45.7 million Skylstad offered last year to 75 plaintiffs. That offer was rejected because it failed to include victims who had not filed claims, or those who may file claims in the future.
The settlement is considerably less than some recent cases involving dioceses in other U.S. cities.
Last month, the Archdiocese of Portland, Ore., filed a bankruptcy reorganization plan that would pay about $75 million to settle nearly 170 claims of priest sex abuse, and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles agreed to pay $60 million to settle 45 sex abuse claims.
Other large settlements include $100 million paid to 87 claimants in 2005 by the Diocese of Orange County, Calif., and $85 million paid to 552 claimants in 2003 by the Archdiocese of Boston.
While there are, most certainly, members of the laity, including Mrs. Engel herself, in the conciliar structures who have spoken out quite courageously about these matters, it is nevertheless true that the price of a priest or a consecrated religions for being "una cum" (one with) Joseph Ratzinger and his fellow non-bishops in the counterfeit church of conciliarism is the inability to speak out publicly in most cases in defense of the fullness of the Faith and against the spiritual robber barons who continue to pollute souls with textual material that violates God's Commandments and thus harms grievously the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross. Moreover, the desire to please false potentates leads to the willingness to be silent in the face of apostasy and betrayal as all manner of self-serving rationalizations are offered for refusing to defend the simple fact that God's truths are immutable and that no amount of "recognition" from apostates warrants silence in the face of threats to souls, especially those of the young.
Does any "priest," whether ordained validly or not, or consecrated religious really want to face God after a lifetime of silence about such programs as those described by Mrs. Engel, programs that are becoming increasingly bolder and more graphic with each passing academic year? Is not the systematic protection of perverts and the systematic promotion of perversity within the conciliar structures only too symptomatic of the larger doctrinal and liturgical revolutions that have devastated souls and eviscerated beliefs in the central truths of the Faith, including, among so many other things, the indissolubility and fecundity of marriage and the Real Presence of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament?
Each of us is a sinner. Each of us must answer for our sins at the moment of our Particular Judgments. Each of our sins, whether or not we realize it, has contributed to the foul miasma of corruption afflicting us in the world at the present time. It is one thing to sin and to be sorry, to seek out the Mercy of the Divine Redeemer in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance. It is quite another to promote sin, the very thing that caused Our Lord to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death and that thrust Seven Swords of Sorrow through His Most Blessed Mother's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, in the context of what purports to be "Catholic" education. Our Lord knows that fallen men must live with other fallen men in this passing, mortal value of tears. He does expect us, however, to make some reparation for our sins by performing the Spiritual Works of Mercy, one of which is admonishing the sinner, not extolling his sins. To be silent about the promotion of sin and the undermining of the innocence and purity of the young, which itself is a grave sin, is to shirk this Spiritual Work of Mercy and to serve as an accessory to the sins of others. Speaking as one who has committed more than enough sins in his own life, I do not want to compound my own sins by serving as accessory to the sins of those who corrupt the young and undermine their Faith. Does anyone else want to compound their own sins by silence or turning a convenient blind eye to the actual, undeniable facts of life in the conciliar structures?
All the more reason, therefore, to live penitentially, especially during these Ember Days, and to pray fervently for those who believe that "they" are "going to turn the Church around" by exchanging silence about apostasy and corruption for "recognition" and "good standing." The indult has always been a trap. It remains, as will be demonstrated in a companion article to be posted at the same time as this one, a trap, one that is preternaturally planned and executed so that believing Catholics will indeed accept apostasy and corruption as beyond their ability to change, worse yet that apostasy and corruption either are "not so bad" or really don't exist at all. Our penances and sacrifices and prayers, offered to the Most Blessed Trinity, through Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, can help plant a a few seeds to help more and more people realize that none of us should ever want to be una cum with the proponents of apostasy and betrayal for one solitary moment.
Trusting in Our Lady, whose Immaculate Queenship over us will be celebrated this Monday, June 4, 2007 (the feast day being preceded by the Mass of Whit-Thursday) as her consecrated slaves, may we be ever faithful to the prayerful recitation of her Most Holy Rosary each day, cleaving firmly to her true bishops and true priests in the Catholic catacombs where no concessions at all are made to anything to do with conciliarism and no recognition is given to the false shepherds who promote apostasy and perversion while maintaining a steadfast contempt for the Faith of our fathers and everything to do with the glories of Christendom. May we continue to pray and work for the day when all men will exclaim with hearts consecrated to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary:

The Longer Version of the Saint Michael the Archangel Prayer, composed by Pope Leo XIII, 1888
O glorious Archangel Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly host, be our defense in the terrible warfare which we carry on against principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, spirits of evil. Come to the aid of man, whom God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. Fight this day the battle of our Lord, together with the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless to resist thee, nor was there place for them any longer in heaven. That cruel, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan who seduces the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels. Behold this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage. Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the Name of God and of His Christ, to seize upon, slay, and cast into eternal perdition, souls destined for the crown of eternal glory. That wicked dragon pours out. as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity. These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on Her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck the sheep may be scattered. Arise then, O invincible Prince, bring help against the attacks of the lost spirits to the people of God, and give them the victory. They venerate thee as their protector and patron; in thee holy Church glories as her defense against the malicious powers of hell; to thee has God entrusted the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitude. Oh, pray to the God of peace that He may put Satan under our feet, so far conquered that he may no longer be able to hold men in captivity and harm the Church. Offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High, so that they may quickly conciliate the mercies of the Lord; and beating down the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, do thou again make him captive in the abyss, that he may no longer seduce the nations. Amen.
