A Report on the Sodomy Synod, from Culture Wars

Well-informed Catholics the world over have a fairly good idea of what went on a few months ago in Rome but this summary, from Culture Wars, is a useful compendium of the facts that all Catholics should be cognizant of right now.  We have to know what we are dealing with.

What we are dealing with is not pretty.  I can not see it as anything other than a full frontal assault not only on Catholic morality but on simple human decency as well.  And we would do well to understand what lies just underneath the surface, just below the radar screen, that which is unsaid but still very much a part of the assault.  As the author points out:

"It is not only the content of the final document but also its omissions which should cause grave concern. Even though the synod was called to deal with the crisis facing the family there is not one single mention of abortion, in vitro fertilisation, or euthanasia. Nor is there any mention of the serious threat posed to the civil freedoms of those who remain faithful to moral law and the teachings of the Church. Finally the section on contraception, far from strongly reasserting the Church’s teaching, is phrased in such a way that it would seem open to couples making a choice in ‘conscience’ to use contraception. This ambiguous sentence reads: “we should return to the message of the Encyclical Humanae Vitae of Blessed Pope Paul VI, which highlights the need to respect the dignity of the person in morally assessing methods in regulating births.”

Those "omissions" are the dagger that will be thrust into the heart of Catholic doctrine and practice, and which will send many, many souls to Hell.

It is an awful thought.  But that is the final outcome of the machinations of the traitors.

And yes, they are traitors, in the truest sense of that word.

Many of us are complacent in the belief that the gates of Hell will not prevail against the Church.  Yes, that is true, but how does one really understand the implications of that frightening phrase?  How, in the real workaday world, is that going to impact Catholics struggling to hang on to what the Church has always taught?  The phrase tells us by implication that something wicked this way comes; that "something" may have great success in obliterating almost the last vestiges of faith on this planet.

The phrase carries the further implication that our own, our fellow Christians, are poised to turn against us. If the Bastard Synod/the Sin-nod/the Synod of Sodomy has taught us nothing else it has taught us that we are on the cusp of a great demolition pf faith and morals.  This writer thinks of these things when he looks at his children and grandchildren.  How will they hang on when their own mother, their Church, conspires with the Enemy?

As October looms before us a few months from now what I fear is going to happen is that there will be few if any new deliberations at all and that the Bishops (and the world) will be presented with a fait accompli; the "new rules" as it were will merely be presented to them as a completed project based on last year's relatio and that the Bishops will therefore be expected to implement them.  It will be quite surprising if that doesn't happen.  Lest we forget, they haven't invested all this time and effort, and the lessons they learned from the Vatican II shenanigans, for nothing.  These are willful men.

Nevertheless we will oppose them until they stamp us out, and, frankly, I am reasonably certain that we will only have this internet option for a very short time to accomplish anything.  They will not allow free expression like this to go on much longer.  Whether they are conscious of it or not the Forces of Evil and Chaos in both government and Church are working toward the same end and because of that alternative journalism will be stopped.  Not may be; it will be.  Thus while we still have the time we should put it to good use.  Too pessimistic?  Perhaps.  We shall see.

So let us use it while we still have it.  To do that we need to know what we are talking about first.  And the article linked above is an excellent overview of the main facts neatly marshaled into one concise article.
