THIS ARTICLE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN
We live in very dark times where the light of Christ is almost eclipsed by the evils rampant in our world. Our bishops, by and large, are following a worldly path where the laws of the secular State are given precedence over the laws of God and over the laws of the Catholic Church. This is why we must pray earnestly for our bishops and we must challenge them to restore the Catholic Faith to its proper place in our society.
Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
Once again, I have to write an article which brings a great heaviness to my heart. I am writing about the LGBT ideology which is a form of child abuse when promoted to children. For too long in our society, many of the episcopal voices who should speak out to protect our children, have remained silent. They hide behind secular definitions which have nothing to do with the Catholic Faith and when challenged, they point out how well they are complying with state legislation.
The secular powers have defined child abuse as pertaining solely to the physical, emotional or sexual abuse of children. They have dictated to the Catholic Church what it must do in order to be seen to conform to protecting children from the State’s definition of child abuse. Our bishops all too readily comply and limit themselves to following State directives in this matter. But we know that the secular State does not care for children for they have sanctioned the murder of countless innocent children. Our bishops do not protect our children from abusive ideologies.
Is this good enough?
To answer this question we must look to what is called, ‘the ultimate end’ of man. The ultimate end of man, the purpose for which he is created, is to attain Heaven. To be united with the Holy Trinity for all eternity. Nothing else really matters or is of any lasting significance.
The Catholic Church teaches us that those who die in a state of mortal sin are damned to Hell for all eternity.
“Mortal sin is a radical possibility of human freedom, as is love itself. It results in the loss of charity and the privation of sanctifying grace, that is, of the state of grace. If it is not redeemed by repentance and God’s forgiveness, it causes exclusion from Christ’s kingdom and the eternal death of hell, for our freedom has the power to make choices for ever, with no turning back.” (CCC 1861)
Therefore, we must guard ourselves and our children from mortal sin.
There are three conditions for a sin to be mortal. There must be grave matter, full knowledge and full consent. Sins against chastity always consist of grave matter and therefore with full knowledge and full consent these sins are always mortal in nature and deprive those who commit them of sanctifying grace. This is not to say that sins against chastity are the greatest sins, but, in the end, what does it really matter if one goes to Hell for murder or for adultery, one is still deprived of the beatific vision for all eternity.
The Catechism teaches us that “When the will sets itself upon something that is of its nature incompatible with the charity that orients man toward his ultimate end, then the sin is mortal by its very object” (CCC1856)
God created man in His own image and likeness and the first recorded Words of God to man are found in the first chapter of the Book of Genesis.
“And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them.
And God blessed them, saying: Increase and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all living creatures that move upon the earth.” (Genesis 1:27-28)
This ‘Word’ of God tells us the purpose of our human nature which includes our sexual nature. We are called to increase and multiply and to fill the earth with souls destined for eternal glory.
Adam and Eve caused a cataclysmic catastrophe when they listened to the serpent and rebelled against God. God punished them; pain in child birth; hard labour; unjust male domination of women.
“I will multiply thy sorrows, and thy conceptions: in sorrow shalt thou bring forth children, and thou shalt be under thy husband’s power, and he shall have dominion over thee.
And to Adam he said: Because thou hast hearkened to the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldst not eat, cursed is the earth in thy work; with labour and toil shalt thou eat thereof all the days of thy life.
Thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herbs of the earth.
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread till thou return to the earth, out of which thou wast taken: for dust thou art, and into dust thou shalt return. (Genesis 3:16-19)
And so our sorry sinful tale continued until the time was ripe for the Incarnation.
“But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent his Son, made of a woman, made under the law: That he might redeem them who were under the law: that we might receive the adoption of sons.” (Galatians 4:4-5)
Christ restored order to the world and He founded the Catholic Church to teach us how to get to Heaven. He restored order to the sexes by confirming the original nature of marriage and elevated matrimony to a sacrament.
The devil seeks to destroy the work of God in our hearts and as Sister Lucia of Fatima pointed out, “the final battle between the Lord and the reign of satan will be about marriage and the family.”
Faithful Catholic parents realise that we have been in the midst of that battle for many years now but the enemy’s focus has now shifted and he seeks to directly corrupt our children from as early and age as possible.
The battle has also entered the Catholic Church and it is so sad and distressing to see immoral sexual practices being promoted to children from within organisations that were founded by the Church and from within Catholic schools which have Catholic bishops as patrons.
The image above comes from the Facebook page of the Kerry Diocesan Youth Services (KDYS). They are promoting what has become known as ‘Pride Month’. You will notice that there are five flags on the image and these are, from left to right – the pansexual flag – the social media lesbian flag – the non-binary flag – the bisexual flag – the transgender pride flag.
I tried to speak with Bishop Raymond Browne, the Bishop of Kerry, but I was told that he was in meetings. I e-mailed him to alert him to the above image stating, “Promoting the LGBT agenda to children is a form of child abuse, as it leads children to believe a distorted version of human sexuality which is contrary to God’s purpose.”
I pointed out to Bishop Browne that in the past, KDYS has encouraged children as young as 13 to attend gay pride parades and that they have featured an image of some of their ‘heroes’ who had marched in the Dublin pride parade.
Fr Gearóid Godley, a priest of the Kerry Diocese has served on the board of KDYS and was chairman of the board in 2019. As far as I am aware, Fr Godley is still a board member of KDYS.
Bishop Browne responded by acknowledging receipt of my e-mail and then he wrote.
“The following is by way of clarification.
KDYS is an independent registered company with its own board of directors.
It works closely with Tusla, the Department of Children and Youth Affairs, the Department of Education, and the youth work sector in Ireland. This includes all aspects of Safeguarding of Children and the requirements of Children First.”
It is hard to know what to make of this response.
I responded by stating that those who promote the LGBT ideology to young people are actively facilitating child abuse and that this organisation, which has a priest of the Diocese on the board of directors is actively facilitating child abuse.
I asked Bishop Browne if he was really trying to tell me that promoting bisexuality and lesbianism and encouraging young people to take part in pride parades is a part of child safeguarding.
I asked him if he was telling me that he doesn’t have to speak out against this form of child abuse because KDYS is an independent company even though Bishop Browne advertises their services on his diocesan website.
I asked Bishop Browne where are the same-sex attracted young people, who are part of his diocese, going to find out the truth about human sexuality if the diocese points them in the direction of KDYS.
Later that evening, I continued my research into this matter and I decided to ‘follow the money’. I downloaded the KDYS financial report for the year 2019. KDYS is in receipt of over two and a half million euros in government grants annually.
I then discovered from the report that, “The Diocese of Kerry may nominate up to four Directors and the balance of up to nine additional Directors may be co-opted by the Board on the basis of their perceived expertise.” (KDYS Annual Report for 2019)
What this means is that KDYS is not completely independent of the Diocese of Kerry as Bishop Browne has the authority to nominate up to four Directors to the board.
I also discovered that KDYS is a member of Youth Works Ireland. Youth Works Ireland in turn partners with both ‘Belong-To’ and ‘Spunout.ie’.
‘Belong-To’ is an abortion advocate and promotes the homosexual lifestyle to young people.
SpunOut.ie promotes casual sex, homosexual sexual encounters, contraception and abortion amongst other things. I do not recommend a visit to their website as it contains matters of a gravely evil nature, but our young people are being directed to this website by the secular authorities.
SpunOut.ie also provided a link to videos from the IFPA which were designed, “to help those accessing abortion services during the pandemic” When I tried to access the videos they were marked as unavailable and may have been taken down or blocked by YouTube.
So the Kerry Diocesan Youth Services, which has a priest of the Kerry Diocese on the Board of Directors and where the bishop of Kerry has the authority to appoint four members of the board of directors, is directly co-operating with an organisation that promotes the killing of innocent children.
When I found out this information I once again contacted Bishop Raymond Browne and I told him, that, given the seriousness of this situation it is imperative that he act, otherwise he should resign as Bishop of Kerry because he is failing in his duty of care for our children.
At the time of writing this article, I have not had a further response from Bishop Browne.
As I was writing this article, I was contacted by a supporter from down in the south of Ireland. He drew my attention to the fact that Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, in Ballyfermot, Dublin, was flying the pride flag outside the Church on church property.
I checked their Facebook page and I found out that they were promoting this sacrilegious act there.
I contacted Fr Adrian Egan C.Ss.R and left a message. I also contacted the Child Safeguarding and Protection Service of the Dublin Archdiocese and said that I wanted to make a complaint as promoting the LGBT ideology to young people is a form of child abuse.
The Dublin parish flying the pride flag shows that this is not just a problem in the Kerry Diocese and it is not just about Bishop Browne.
I also briefly checked the Cloyne Diocesan Youth Services and they too are promoting the LGBT ideology from their Facebook page and are members of Youth Work Ireland.
Catholic parents need to develop a sense of moral outrage at the targeting of their young Catholic children with the LGBT ideology in what should be Catholic settings.
Those who promote this ideology, who permit this ideology to be promoted to children, or who remain silent in the face of this ideology are leading themselves and children to Hell.
Jesus Christ showed moral outrage when the money changers abused the Temple. We and our children are temples of the Holy Ghost, and the secular State is corrupting children with the co-operation of many within the Catholic Church.
Catholic Fathers must raise their voices in protest at this and we must work to overthrow anyone who is co-operating with this evil.
The Irish Government, which murders Irish children and which also provides significant funds to the organisations that are promoting abortion and the false LGBT ideology, must be resisted.
Catholic parents must realise just how determined these people are in getting their corrupt message to children. Catholic parents need to write to the Bishop of Kerry, Bishop Raymond Browne, and ask him to, either publicly denounce what is going on with the KDYS, or resign from office.
Catholic parents need to contact the Archdiocese of Dublin and ask for Fr Adrian Egan to be removed of his duties because his promotion of gay pride represents a serious danger to the salvation of the souls of children.
We are entering a new period of child abuse in Ireland and, as in previous times, those of us who first raise our voices against this child abuse will be sidelined, we will be ignored, and those we report the abuse to will move to defend their positions and their institutions. They will try to deflect responsibility away from themselves. They will try to argue that they are following government guidelines on safeguarding children thus justifying their silence about this form of child abuse.
Those who accept and who actively promote this ideology will harass us and call us homophobes and other names. We may be accused of ‘hate’ crimes and face criminal prosecution. So be it. We must still rise up to protect children from this seriously harmful ideology which leads souls to Hell. We must calmly and clearly call the LGBT ideology, when it is promoted to children, what it is – Child Abuse!
When it comes to safeguarding children, we should follow the guiding precepts of the Catholic Church and not those of the abortion providing secular State which sees no problem with indoctrinating children into the LGBT ideology.
Our children and our young people are being led into mortally sinful situations by Catholics and others who do not have a full grasp of, or who reject, the Catholic Faith.
There are already signs, including those detailed in this article, that the proposed Synodal path in Ireland will be used to promote the LGBT ideology and will follow the German synodal path into schism.
Jesus Christ warns us “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.” (Matthew 18:6)
Let us pray that we will not be found wanting when it comes to protecting children from the false and damaging LGBT ideology. Let us proclaim the truth to those who suffer with same-sex attraction so that they may find comfort in the sacraments of the Catholic Church and let us hold our bishops to account when it comes to protecting children.
Let us form Catholic family networks with a primary focus on getting ourselves and our children to Heaven through the practice of our Catholic Faith as our ancestors practiced it in times of persecution.
