Welcome to Sodom and Gomorrah

I really thought Justice Kennedy would be hard-pressed to substitute himself for God and throw the structure for creating law down the toilet. I wasn't completely surprised, but it's hard to imagine anyone, even if their catechesis was crappy, positioning themselves over God as the arbiter of truth about about marriage.

Would you want your name on the short list of five people who turned the country into Sodom and Gomorrah? I honestly can't think of anyone in the history of human civilization who has done something more insidious and evil. Apart from the physical crucifixion, the offense is the darkest act in the history of Christendom.

In the world of Christ's Mystical Body, he has foisted Christ's Body upon the cross and driven the nails into his hands and feet.

What a dirty rat.

I don't know much about the history of Sodom but I am curious to know how long it took before God took action. It's going to get ugly now.

I hate to say it, but I did rationalize Kennedy's bold act of rebellion aimed at God as the fruit of the tree of Pope Francis.

You know what I loved best?

The USCCB's statement.

For over 50 years they have worked towards the goal of of yesterday's ruling. Hiring and ordaining androgynous heretics to contradict the truths of the Catholic Church, they are brazenly planning another synod to impose moral chaos on human sexuality and the Sacraments. Their statement reminded me of that scene in Casablanca when Captain Renault raided Rick's saloon and pretended to be shocked to find gambling.

“I ask all in positions of power and authority to respect the God-given freedom to seek, live by, and bear witness to the truth.”

How about you start by purging every heretic from every classroom and every parish and every apostolate?

How about plucking every last one of them out of every university?

How about you stop ordaining heretics?

How about defrocking the ones we have? God knows there is a library of complaints in every chancery.

Talk is cheap. They know full well the consequences of ordaining and hiring heretics that contradict Church teaching on their behalf. And yet, we see from the circus of the Romans they are going to keep on doing it, bolder than ever.

At the end of the day, Archbishop Kurtz's message affirms the Scriptural counsel of keeping our hand on the plow in every circumstance.

I leave you with Justics Scalia's words of wisdom:

The Supreme Court of the United States has descended from the disciplined legal reasoning of John Marshall and Joseph Story to the mystical aphorisms of the fortune cookie."

Justice Kennedy by all rights should be formally and publicly excommunicated from the Church of Christ never to darken her doorsteps again, until such time that he did everything possible to rectify the harm he has done. But Cdl. Wuerl would NEVER do that! A wolf in sheep's clothing that would prefer to 'walk with him in pastoral love and MERCY.' And then maybe Kennedy is a 'Catholic' in name only,and doesn't really care all that much, who would know. All I know is that he is a despicable excuse for a human being and he sits on the bench of the Supreme Court. Not only did he sell Christians down river, he violated the Constitution of the United States. Talk about a brainless idiot, did he not realize that this would open the door to polygamy, bestiality, and incestuous relationships that will ultimately destroy the culture completely if we are not in fact already there?? Someone is going to want to marry their dog. Hope he and Judas Iscariot have fun counting their 30 pieces of silver.....oh wait....hell is pretty hot, probably hot enough to melt that silver, so........

The USCCB is a major part of the problem. But one could very easily argue, that this case was lost when marriage was declared a fundamental right of man, back during the case for interracial marriage. Although the correct conclusion was reached, the logic was severely flawed. If marriage is a right, by that very nature alone, a government, religion or a person can't deny it. Oh how ugly this is going to be, Kyrie eleison

It must be because you are blocking all the rest.

There is more than a few of us who laugh at you lady.

You've got a little post-traumatic stress going on from my blocking your comments. Chill out and remember the ancient proverb: He who laughs last, laughs best.

TLM, Kennedy has condemned himself. Like Judas. Wait, I take that back - much worse than Judas.

Very good Carol. At Mass this morning neither Laudato Si or the Supreme Court approval of gay marriage was mentioned by our priest, I suppose in the interest of tranquility. Also, sin of any kind was not mentioned for perhaps the same reason. Here is his sermon which is quite good in Vatican II sort of way. Father is from Ireland and has written several books on spirituality.

Steve Dalton said...

Joe, what do you mean the logic was flawed in the 1967 case about inter-racial marriage?

Anonymous said...

Joe Potillor, How is the 1967 decision flawed? Marriage has been defined for eons as between a man and a woman. This basic fact was not compromised in the 1967 decision you mention, which allowed men and women of different races to marry each other. The Bible proclaims God created man in his image, "male and female he created them." Was the exclusion of LGBT in this statement a Divine oversight? I don't think so: God makes us either male or female.

By definition two people of the same sex cannot marry each other--whatever human laws or judicial decisions proclaim. Same-sex couples can only engage in perverted sexual acts--no matter what their illusions or intentions are.

Do you accept the argument that marriage is possible between two people of the same sex, who cannot have natural sexual intercourse with each other?

The good thing about commenting a few days later on a blog post is that what you say is controversial, most people won't read it...

Here goes...

Contraception brought us same-sex marriage. When you separate what used to be the primary purpose of marriage from the institution of marriage, the purpose of marriage is now up for grabs. "It's all about love" #LoveWins right?

It's ironic that Michael Dowd's priest is from Ireland. I checked out his blog. Of course he had nothing to say about same-sex marriage this past weekend. I'm sure he didn't say anything when the formerly-Catholic country, Ireland, voted for sodomy. And according to his short biography, he wrote a book called "Centering Prayer and the Healing of the Unconscious"? Flee that parish, Mr. Dowd. Run and don't look back. Time is running out. You don't need a priest who is unable to give you good spiritual guidance.

Michael Dowd said...

Thanks Lynne. The priest in question was also pushing books by Maria Divine Mercy from the pulpit which turned out to be a racket and a hoax. See below.

One must be on their guard more than ever now-a-days.
