During these dark ages that we live in, it is so wonderful to occasionally hear of a St. Paul-like priest or bishop. Courageous Priest is a great website that publishes these rare occurrences when a priest or a bishop puts his career and his life on the line by...SPEAKING OUT! The laity is clamoring for such priests and bishops to boldly speak Thee Truth, and to quit being politically correct in fear of "offending" a parishioner, the media, another faith, or politicians. This webpage will proudly link to Courageous Priests and The Orate Fratres and publicize these great men when they are filled with the Holy Spirit and, like St. Paul, proudly proclaim Thee Truth of the Catholic Church contained in the Holy Bible and The Catechism of the Catholic Church!
Father Michael (FYI - Michael means "who is like God") Rodriguez of the Diocese of El Paso was removed from his parish by his Bishop for speaking the truth about homosexuality to the El Paso City Council. He now preaches thee truth at Santa Teresa Catholic Church in Presidio, Texas, on the Texas/Mexican Border. Here he speaks the truth about the abominable HHS mandate from the current USA regime.
In the middle of our dark, secular, godless society, there is a light. This light is the Holy Roman Catholic Church. Jesus Christ and His Church teach the truth about homosexuality, and we can summarize this truth in three points:
(1) Homosexual acts are acts of grave depravity; they are mortal sins which cry to heaven for vengeance. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
(2) Homosexuality is an objective disorder.
(3) Homosexual persons are to be treated with respect, compassion, and sensitivity.
In the debate over homosexuality, the dark side seeks to frame the issue as one of discrimination and civil rights. This makes no logical sense. No one has a civil right to do something morally wrong. I don’t have a right to steal. I don’t have a right to lie. I don’t have a right to commit adultery, and I don’t have a right to engage in homosexual acts. As for discrimination, discrimination exists when one is against a person not when one is against actions on the part of a person. The Roman Catholic Church condemns actions of a homosexual nature. She does not discriminate against homosexual persons.
"On the verge of being condemned to death, Jesus Christ responds to Pontius Pilate, “For this I was born, and for this came I into the world, that I should give testimony to the truth.” (Jn 18:37) Jesus Christ was not born for “freedom of conscience” or “religious liberty”; He was born to bring the truth, and hence salvation, to a fallen world. Erat lux vera . . . He was the true light. Only adherence to the truth nurtures our God-given freedom and allows it to thrive and prosper properly. Listen carefully to our Savior’s own words, “the truth shall make you free.” (Jn 8:32) Pope Leo XIII, Vicar of Christ, teaches, “the best parent and guardian of liberty amongst men is truth” (Immortale Dei 40, November 1, 1885).
"Homosexual lust is our god and Obama, Bishop Gene Robinson, and the Democratic Party are his prophets. The sacrifice is personal integrity and corruption of the body and spirit. Its priests and priestesses are men who have sex with men (MSM) and women who have sex with women (WSW). Its church is the Human Rights Campaign and other activist organizations, Pride clubs and “gay” and “lesbian” centers. Its covenant offers false promises of equality with those who have normal sexual feelings and inner peace. It delivers disease, prolonged adolescent immaturity, and oppression of the church and good people who live upright moral lives.
Money is our god, and the the wealthy and welfare are its prophets. Its sacrifice is hard earned savings and retirement. Its priests are those taking obscene profits by defrauding investors, and those who choose government money over honest work. Its church is a non vigilant Securities and Exchange Commission and congress. Its covenant promises self reliance and security in wealth or sustenance. It delivers collapse of the economy, unfair distribution of wealth, and a drain on the tax system.
Socialism is our god, and Obama is his prophet. Its sacrifice is personal freedom. Its priests are politicians and communist ideological organizations. Its church are legislatures and executive branches in government. Its covenant promises fairness and sameness for all. It delivers power and wealth those who already possess it and takes away opportunity for those out of power and destroys of the economy and future for others."
