Timothy Dolan - The Joker of New York continues on his gay way.

The hypocrisy of those who wear green is grotesque only outdone by the buffoon in red.

The "snakes" driven out of Ireland were the Druid sodomites. 

Dolan now disgraces a parade in honour of the Saint of Ireland with them.

Dare we ask; is Dolan a sodomite?

CDL. DOLAN CELEBRATES GAYS IN ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE

"Thrilled" that "decades of division" have been overcome

NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - New York's Cdl. Timothy Dolan is celebrating greater inclusion at this year's St. Patrick's Day Parade, which has lifted its ban on homosexuals and allowed two gay activist groups to march officially under their own banners.
Mayor Bill de Blasio, who dropped his boycott of the parade and marched through the streets of New York City Thursday, praised the event for welcoming homosexuals.
"I think it sends a moral signal," he told the press. "This says that New York City is whole again, that the people of New York City are unified, and that we're learning to overcome division."
Cardinal Dolan and de Blasio warmly embraced, Dolan telling a reporter from the local CBS affiliate that he was "thrilled" that "decades of division" had been overcome.
"There's a great spirit ... a wonderful sense of unity and friendship," Cdl. Dolan remarked. "I'd say 'Alleluia' but I can't because it's Lent."

It's a disgrace & I don't know how Cardinal Dolan can face the cameras with the uncovering of the massive corruption in his NY Diocese which he has failed to confront. Either he is one of them or is totally unfit for the office he holds. St. Patrick must be writhing in his grave. This sodomite church has to be eradicated at all costs & a general exorcism carried out before we can expect a return to meaningful worship, respectful fear & the fervent will to serve as true apostles of Christ is finally restored to the CC.

From Persona Humana:


In the present period, the corruption of morals has increased, and one of the most serious indications of this corruption is the unbridled exaltation of sex. Moreover, through the means of social communication and through public entertainment this corruption has reached the point of invading the field of education and of infecting the general mentality...

...there are those who have put forward concepts and modes of behavior which are contrary to the true moral exigencies of the human person. Some members of the latter group have even gone so far as to favor a licentious hedonism.

As a result, in the course of a few years, teachings, moral criteria and modes of living hitherto faithfully preserved have been very much unsettled, even among Christians.

I ask how can we explain Cardinal Dolan's actions? Barring a loss of Faith, there can be only one conclusion: BLACKMAIL.

The Sodomite Mafia has declared victory in the promotion their agenda as they marched in New York's Saint Patrick Day Parade yesterday beneath their pro-homosexual banner. Culture of Death forces wish us to believe that the parade has become "homosexualized". Obviously, the Sodomite Mafia spun yesterday's parade as a major victory for the advancement of their agenda.

However, in fairness to Timothy Cardinal Dolan, no matter what various folks believe about him, he has rejected the politicization of the parade by secular forces. He has rejected any other understanding of the parade other than the following:

Cardinal Dolan declared that as per "the by-laws of the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade would state the two purposes of the Parade Committee to be, (a) "to arrange, organize and conduct...a parade in honor of St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland...," and...(b) to educate and perpetuate the principles of the Roman Catholic Church, and the culture and tradition of the Irish and Irish-American people."

No matter as to how the Sodomite Mafia/secular news media may have spun the parade, Cardinal Dolan is correct in that the official purpose of the parade is to honor Saint Patrick, and to promote Catholic principles as well as the Irish/Irish-American culture.

The parade's origins are Catholic, as Cardinal Dolan noted in the following: "It is important, especially given the strong secular currents in our society today, that we not forget why this parade exists. It is not just the Irish Parade: We march to honor St. Patrick. That is why so many cringe at and resist pleas to weaken the Catholic origins of the parade."

Cardinal Dolan also declared that "no one is permitted to use it for causes that are extrinsic to its origins." That is why we must resist the Sodomite/News Media Mafia's determination to present the parade as a platform to advance homosexuality. We must not permit the Sodomite Mafia or, for that matter, anybody else to attach to the parade a false understanding.

Additionally, in fairness to Cardinal Dolan, he also emphasized the following: "The Mass in the Cathedral that starts the grand day is jammed, and characterized by reverence and joy. I thank those who love and lead the parade for assuring us all that the original intent of the parade, which has flourished for over two-and-a-half centuries — to celebrate the faith, heritage, culture, and tradition of Ireland — is preserved."

Cardinal Dolan added that it "would be particularly somber if the forces of secularism were able to do what centuries of oppressive rule were unable to do: erase the faith from Irish identity."

Therefore, no matter what suspicions that some people may harbor in regard to him, let us at least recognize please that Cardinal Dolan has resisted the spin that secular forces have placed upon the parade. Cardinal Dolan has spoken forcefully of the Catholic origin and true purpose of New York's Saint Patrick Day Parade.

Please, we must not allow secular forces to convince us otherwise as to the parade's origin and true meaning.

Pax.

Brave Cardinal Dolan ran away --
Bravely ran away, away!
When Sodom raised its ugly head.
He bravely turned his tail and fled!
While St. Patrick Day is marred by sin,
So bravely he resists the spin!
Yes, Cardinal Dolan turned about
And gallantly he chickened out.
Bravely taking to his feet
He beat a very brave retreat.
Bravest of the Brave! Cardinal Dolan!

It's clear to me now that Cardinal Dolan is an enemy of Christ.

The St Patrick's Day parade is simply reflecting what's happening in Catholic Churches ,where the Worship of God is been replaced by the celebration of self.The parade is supposed to celebrate St Patrick bring the faith to Ireland ,why would those who reject the teachings of that Faith ,insist on taking part in a parade celebrating it.?

Kathleen1031 said...

Cardinal Jester got it right, kudos.
There is no other way to see this rather than what it is, a gigantic capitulation to the sodomite agenda, the agenda that is creeping, creeping, ever steadily, until you, and I, accept and cheer it and teach it to our children as right and good.
Cardinal Dolan, like every other clergyman who has sold out to this diabolical lie, has turned his back on the sheep he has a duty to protect, and rejected Christ and his church. I pity him and us.
I don't know how many people showed up for the Mass and parade, but it confirms how the Irish have lost the faith, going to gawk at a parade that "honors" the saint in words only. The parade is a farce.

@ Mark Thomas

Given the ongoing expose on Cardinal Dolan on Church militant and the general takeover of society by the sodomite mafia, your insistence on sticking to what the Cardinal says while ignoring what he does, is proof that you are not a reasonable person.

You are a legalist.

Sodomites pushing their homosexual "marriage" and adoption agendas should be (and I mean a moral imperative) chastised and thrown out of the parade, not welcomed and celebrated. They are in all the schools pushing their degeneracy on all the children, they are in all the courts of law (just fired a judge in England for daring to say that children are better off with a mum and a dad than with homosexuals), all the media, in the Vatican.

Cardinal Dolan had a perfect opportunity to set an example for all of us, including the brainwashed children, the teachers, the priests, the judges, the cake bakers and wedding photographers. He could have said to the sodomites: Sorry, but since you promote sodomy and identify with it as a main aspect of your identity (no one would want to prevent them from marching, should they repent for sodomitic acts and consider Catholicism their identity), you can not possibly be included.

Mark Thomas, why re doing this?

Dorota said...

@ Vox


The Cardinal definitely is a sodomite, because he supports and celebrates sodomy. He practically denied that it is a sin abhorrent to God, and instead gave it a place of honour. Whether he commits acts of sodomy, is irrelevant at this point.

Peter Lamb said...

A "Cardinal" marching with sodomites, thrilled that division has been overcome and unity and friendship now reign! Budda placed atop the Tabernacle! Rad-trads, neo-trads, semi-trads, R&Rs, novusordites! The Koran kissed! The Old Covenant restored! By their fruits you shall know them!
I can't figure all these sub-classifications of Catholics. In my day, many moons ago, you was just a Catholic. It's simple. The Catholic Faith has not changed one little bit, nor will it ever. Our Lord has promised that the Holy Ghost will see to that! Anybody with half a Catholic brain knows that Bergoglio spouts heresies and that the conciliar church is not Catholic. There is not a morsel of Catholic doctrine to back them pope-sifters up who recognise Bergoglio as Pope, yet resist him. Them poor fellas are the disorientated ones. The fur flies when they deciding what kind of catholics they are. For me nothing has changed. There is nothing to get diabolically confused, or disorientated about. I have the same Faith as always. The pure, Catholic Faith from the time Our Lord walked the Earth until 1958. Just like beloved Mother Colombo taught me in Loreto Convent when I was 5 years old in grade 1. Nowadays they call us plain Catholics sedevacantists. That's OK by me. Call a mule anything you like - it's still a mule. Them judeo-masonic luciferians have invaded and usurped our beautiful churches and properties, but that doesn't really matter. The Catholic Church is visible in her members - not in her properties. One day we will get them all back, when the Immaculate Heart of Mary triumphs and our Church is gloriously restored. It's a bit lonely and chilsome out here in the fields and stables, but we have St. Athanasius to cheer us up. It's comforting to know that I don't have to try figure out what type of catholic I am. Call me a sedevacantist if you like.Truth is I'm a pure-bred Catholic!

Dorota, here is a major difference between you and me: I recognize that my opinions are very, very fallible. I don't expect anybody to march in lockstep with my opinions. I certainly do not label as "unreasonable" anybody who disagrees with my opinions.

Let us suppose that I said that Timothy Cardinal Dolan is the finest, greatest Ordinary in the history of the Archdiocese of New York. In reply, you offer the opinion that he is the worst Ordinary in the Archdiocese's history. I reply..."Dorota, you are unreasonable. What is that matter with you? It is clear that he's the Archdiocese's greatest Ordinary."

The reality is that I offered merely an opinion. My claim that you are "unreasonable" for having failed to agree with my opinion would actually mark me as "unreasonable".

However, suppose that I stated a fact...Timothy Cardinal Dolan is the Ordinary of the Archdiocese of New York. If you said, "No, he is not the Ordinary", then, at least in that situation, you would be unreasonable.

Sorry, Dorota, I am not "unreasonable" when I disagree with your opinions. In the same way, you are not "unreasonable" when you disagree with my opinions. A person becomes unreasonable when he or she rejects an established fact.

Now, Vox-permitting, I, "unreasonable" as I am in your....opinion, would like to return (in my next comment here) to your reply. Thank you.

Dorota, I agree with you in that sodomites are "everywhere" (well, just about). Dorota, of course they have insinuated themselves in Rome...they promote their agenda via educational systems...they promote same-sex "unions"...you are 100 percent, Dorota.

Dorota, here is where in your...opinion...I am certain that you will label me as "unreasonable". Yes, in a perfect world, a fantasy world that has never existed, it would if our Churchmen, in this specific case, Timothy Cardinal Dolan, to have turned into John Wayne. Yes, we all wish that each bishop would puff out his chest, draw a line in the sand, and act tough...become John Wayne.

Well...sorry. The Church isn't a movie. Few Churchmen, if any, are not John Wayne. This isn't The Sands of Iwo Jima...The Alamo...Rio Bravo. We are dealing with Churchmen who are flawed human beings. They are flawed. We are flawed.

Therefore, in this case, let us at least work with Cardinal Dolan rather than bash him and label him a "sodomite". Okay, the sodomites are in the New York Saint Patrick's Parade. But let's follow Cardinal Dolan's lead in reminding everybody that the parade is Catholic in origin. The parade honors Saint Patrick. The parade promotes Catholicism and the Catholic roots of the great Irish culture.

Let us use that to reply to secular forces who wish to spin the parade's purpose into a direction that differs from the above. At every turn, we must remind the secular world that the parade is about the promotion of Catholic principles and the great Irish culture that has been formed by Catholic principles. Should we refuse to do so, then we will have surrendered the parade to the sodomites and Culture of Death.

Dorota, that is all that I'm saying. I agree with your comments about the spread of the Sodomite Mafia. In that regard, you stated the reality of the situation. You are correct.

All that I'm saying is that in my...opinion..., if we don't throw in with Cardinal Dolan's approach to the parade, then the parade will fall definitely to the sodomites. The parade will be forever ruined. That, unfortunately, will be on us.

Catholics, for all practical purposes, have surrendered Christmas, Easter, Saint Valentine Day's, and All Hallows' Eve to secular/commercial forces. We permitted secularists to redefine the meanings of those days (and Church Seasons).

Will we permit sodomites/secular forces to redefine the authentic Catholic meaning of the world famous New York Saint Patrick' Day Parade?

Cardinal Dolan is most certainly an enemy of St. Patrick. Dolan is a Druid. Dolan's actions in supporting Sodomy is louder than his bad jokes and a bad sense of humor. We can Judge this wicked Cardinal by his rotten fruit of the Network of Sodomite Priests and a Sodomite Vicar General that has a relationship with the Archdiocese Communications Director Mr. Zwilling. Mr. Zwilling the habitual Liar for Cardinal Dolan and the Sodomite Priest Network for the Archdiocese of New York.

Dorota said...

@ Mark Thomas

Oh, dear...

My claim is that Cardinal Dolan has already done away with the Catholic identity of the St. Patric's Parade by including and celebrating promoters of sodomy in it.

By doing this, he allowed sin to be celebrated.

Catholics do not celebrate sin, they do not celebrate those who openly defy and offend God and who demand that we all do it. To them their sodomitic proclivities take precedence over Catholic identity which excludes offending God, which excludes celebration and promotion of sodomy. These people are sodomites first and foremost, and they demand that Dolan and God obey them. They have changed the definition of Catholicism while not admitting it, and done away with a grave sin. instead dressing it as gift and virtue.

Catholicism is incompatible with celebration of sin (Dolan knows it), as in Sodom and Gomorrah. God has destroyed them (hatred by God of Sodom is not just a thing of the past, it is valid for today and tomorrow as well, because God's Law is eternal), and since this is undeniably the will of God, Sodom promotion should be excluded from any Catholic place and celebration. Sodom should be as far from the Church as the devil is from God. God does not invite the devil to the Church for a nice get-together.

The important distinction to make is a catholic identity versus a sodomite who can never call himself a Catholic, if he has still any reason left.

A Catholic is a sinner, of course, but one who despises sin, because it separates him from God.

These sodomites, including Dolan, openly celebrate it.

You truly are unreasonable and spiritually blind.

You believe in gradualism. Soon these sodomites in St. Patrick’s Parade will simulate sexual acts, as they do everywhere. All who look at this and approve, are sodomites themselves. You swallowed their method hook and sinker. Please, read "The Overhauling of Straight America", if you haven't read and approved already.

Cardinal Dolan is not in good standing to teach the Truths of the Catholic Faith. He has lost all credibility in the Catholic Church. He should resign immediately for the good of the Catholic Church before this scandal gets deeper in its perversions which is a rejection of Christ and His teachings.

TLM said...

Here is my question for Cdl. Dolan: You welcomed the gay mafia with open arms to the St. Patrick's Day Parade, but this is the second year in a row that no 'Pro Life' groups were allowed. Don't tell me that you couldn't have gone to bat for them and insisted they be welcomed and included!! At the very LEAST! You stood by and did NOTHING except to welcome the gay mafia groups. VERY TELLING INDEED!!

@ Mark Thomas

I will offer you an analogy:

A very powerful individual, Mr Unity had raped Mr Catholic's daughter. She is traumatized. Mr Catholic, wearing his best suit and a broad smile, went out to dinner with Mr Unity. They hugged, kissed, told jokes, dined splendidly, and parted with (you favourite!) PAX.

The daughter complained: "How could you, daddy? How can you have ignored the evil deed committed against your own daughter? How could you have shaken the hand of this monster? How could you make peace with this rapist, instead of seeking justice?"

Mr Catholic responded:

Dorota, I agree with your comments about rape. In that regard, you stated the reality of the situation. You are correct.
All that I'm saying is that in my...opinion..., if we don't throw in with Mr Unity's approach (you know, he is very powerful, and I have my obligations and interests) to human dignity and righteousness, then human dignity and righteousness fall definitely to the rapist. They will be forever ruined. That, unfortunately, will be on me.

Mark Thomas, you are making no sense. You have been told to not have anything to do with the devil or those who listen to the devil in order to appease him, and who defy God.

You have been told to shake the dust off your sandals and to not look back.

It is the rapist who attacks the dignity of a woman. He can violate the woman, but can not take her dignity away. You, by defending him, are voluntarily giving up your own dignity and righteousness.

You say PAX (with Dolan) to those who mock God, and those who push for a change of our laws, to enable them to remove all godliness from the minds and hearts of our children and to criminalize obedience to God and His Law. You are driving nails into our Lord's body, for the sake of peace with the devil. You are constructing all kinds of fantastic excuses for doing this.

I do not make peace with you, unless you change you mind.

Peter Lamb said...

For millennia the Catholic Church has consistently opposed unnatural vice. Here is a brief sampling of useful quotes from Saints, Doctors of the Church, Church Fathers and Ecclesiastical Writers who condemn homosexual vice in their writings.
1. Athenagoras of Athens (2nd Century)
Athenagoras of Athens was a philosopher who converted to Christianity in the second century. He shows that the pagans, who were totally immoral, did not even refrain from sins against nature:
"But though such is our character (Oh! why should I speak of things unfit to be uttered?), the things said of us are an example of the proverb, 'The harlot reproves the chaste.' For those who have set up a market for fornication and established infamous resorts for the young for every kind of vile pleasure – who do not abstain even from males, males with males committing shocking abominations, outraging all the noblest and comeliest bodies in all sorts of ways, so dishonoring the fair workmanship of God."1

2. Tertullian (160-225)
Tertullian was a great genius and apologist of the early Church. Unfortunately, after an initial period of fervor, he succumbed to resentment and pride, left the Church and adhered to the Montanist heresy. Because of works written while still in the Church, he is considered an Ecclesiastical Writer and, as such, is commonly quoted by Popes and theologians. His treatise On Modesty is an apology of Christian chastity. He clearly shows the horror the Church has for sins against nature. After condemning adultery, he exclaims:
"But all the other frenzies of passions–impious both toward the bodies and toward the sexes–beyond the laws of nature, we banish not only from the threshold, but from all shelter of the Church, because they are not sins, but monstrosities."2

3. Eusebius of Caesarea (260-341)
Eusebius Pamphili, Bishop of Cæsarea in Palestine and the “Father of Church History,” writes in his book, Demonstratio Evangelica:
“[God in the Law given to Moses] having forbidden all unlawful marriage, and all unseemly practice, and the union of women with women and men with men.”3

4. Saint Jerome (340-420)
Saint Jerome is both Father and Doctor of the Church. He was also a notable exegete and great polemicist. In his book Against Jovinianus, he explains how a sodomite needs repentance and penance to be saved:
“And Sodom and Gomorrah might have appeased it [God’s wrath], had they been willing to repent, and through the aid of fasting gain for themselves tears of repentance.”4

5. Saint John Chrysostom (347-407)
Saint John Chrysostom is considered the greatest of the Greek Fathers and was proclaimed Doctor of the Church. He was Archbishop and Patriarch of Constantinople, and his revision of the Greek liturgy is used until today. In his sermons about Saint Paul’s Epistle to the Romans, he dwells on the gravity of the sin of homosexuality:
"But if thou scoffest at hearing of hell and believest not that fire, remember Sodom. For we have seen, surely we have seen, even in this present life, a semblance of hell. For since many would utterly disbelieve the things to come after the resurrection, hearing now of an unquenchable fire, God brings them to a right mind by things present. For such is the burning of Sodom, and that conflagration!…
"Consider how great is that sin, to have forced hell to appear even before its time!… For that rain was unwonted, for the intercourse was contrary to nature, and it deluged the land, since lust had done so with their souls. Wherefore also the rain was the opposite of the customary rain. Now not only did it fail to stir up the womb of the earth to the production of fruits, but made it even useless for the reception of seed. For such was also the intercourse of the men, making a body of this sort more worthless than the very land of Sodom. And what is there more detestable than a man who hath pandered himself, or what more execrable?5

Peter Lamb said...

6. Saint Augustine (354-430)
The greatest of the Fathers of the West and one of the great Doctors of the Church, Saint Augustine laid the foundations of Catholic theology. In his celebrated Confessions, he thus condemns homosexuality:
"Those offences which be contrary to nature are everywhere and at all times to be held in detestation and punished; such were those of the Sodomites, which should all nations commit, they should all be held guilty of the same crime by the divine law, which hath not so made men that they should in that way abuse one another. For even that fellowship which should be between God and us is violated, when that same nature of which He is author is polluted by the perversity of lust."6

7. Saint Gregory the Great (540-604)
Pope Saint Gregory I is called “the Great.” He is both Father and Doctor of the Church. He introduced Gregorian chant into the Church. He organized England’s conversion, sending Saint Augustine of Canterbury and many Benedictine monks there.
"Sacred Scripture itself confirms that sulfur evokes the stench of the flesh, as it speaks of the rain of fire and sulfur poured upon Sodom by the Lord. He had decided to punish Sodom for the crimes of the flesh, and the very type of punishment he chose emphasized the shame of that crime. For sulfur stinks, and fire burns. So it was just that Sodomites, burning with perverse desires arising from the flesh like stench, should perish by fire and sulfur so that through this just punishment they would realize the evil they had committed, led by a perverse desire."7

8. Saint Peter Damian (1007-1072)
Doctor of the Church, cardinal and a great reformer of the clergy, Saint Peter Damian wrote his famous Book of Gomorrah against the inroads made by homosexuality among the clergy. He describes not only the iniquity of homosexuality, but also its psychological and moral consequences:
"Truly, this vice is never to be compared with any other vice because it surpasses the enormity of all vices.… It defiles everything, stains everything, pollutes everything. And as for itself, it permits nothing pure, nothing clean, nothing other than filth.…
"The miserable flesh burns with the heat of lust; the cold mind trembles with the rancor of suspicion; and in the heart of the miserable man chaos boils like Tartarus [Hell]…. In fact, after this most poisonous serpent once sinks its fangs into the unhappy soul, sense is snatched away, memory is borne off, the sharpness of the mind is obscured. It becomes unmindful of God and even forgetful of itself. This plague undermines the foundation of faith, weakens the strength of hope, destroys the bond of charity; it takes away justice, subverts fortitude, banishes temperance, blunts the keenness of prudence.
"And what more should I say since it expels the whole host of the virtues from the chamber of the human heart and introduces every barbarous vice as if the bolts of the doors were pulled out."8

Peter Lamb said...

9. Saint Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)

Commenting upon Saint Paul’s Epistle to the Romans (1:26-27), Saint Thomas Aquinas, the Angelic Doctor, explains why the sin of homosexuality is so grave:

"Given the sin of impiety through which they [the Romans] sinned against the divine nature [by idolatry], the punishment that led them to sin against their own nature followed.... I say, therefore, that since they changed into lies [by idolatry] the truth about God, He brought them to ignominious passions, that is, to sins against nature; not that God led them to evil, but only that he abandoned them to evil....

"If all the sins of the flesh are worthy of condemnation because by them man allows himself to be dominated by that which he has of the animal nature, much more deserving of condemnation are the sins against nature by which man degrades his own animal nature....

"Man can sin against nature in two ways. First, when he sins against his specific rational nature, acting contrary to reason. In this sense, we can say that every sin is a sin against man’s nature, because it is against man’s right reason....

"Secondly, man sins against nature when he goes against his generic nature, that is to say, his animal nature. Now, it is evident that, in accord with natural order, the union of the sexes among animals is ordered towards conception. From this it follows that every sexual intercourse that cannot lead to conception is opposed to man’s animal nature."9

10. Saint Catherine of Siena (1347-1380)

Saint Catherine, a great mystic and Doctor of the Church, lived in troubled times. The Papacy was in exile at Avignon, France. She was instrumental in bringing the Popes back to Rome. Her famous Dialogues are written as if dictated by God Himself:

"But they act in a contrary way, for they come full of impurity to this mystery, and not only of that impurity to which, through the fragility of your weak nature, you are all naturally inclined (although reason, when free will permits, can quiet the rebellion of nature), but these wretches not only do not bridle this fragility, but do worse, committing that accursed sin against nature, and as blind and fools, with the light of their intellect darkened, they do not know the stench and misery in which they are. It is not only that this sin stinks before me, who am the Supreme and Eternal Truth, it does indeed displease me so much and I hold it in such abomination that for it alone I buried five cities by a divine judgment, my divine justice being no longer able to endure it. This sin not only displeases me as I have said, but also the devils whom these wretches have made their masters. Not that the evil displeases them because they like anything good, but because their nature was originally angelic, and their angelic nature causes them to loathe the sight of the actual commission of this enormous sin.10

Peter Lamb said...

11. Saint Bernardine of Siena (1380-1444)
Saint Bernardine of Siena was a famous preacher, celebrated for his doctrine and holiness. Regarding homosexuality, he stated:
"No sin in the world grips the soul as the accursed sodomy; this sin has always been detested by all those who live according to God.… Deviant passion is close to madness; this vice disturbs the intellect, destroys elevation and generosity of soul, brings the mind down from great thoughts to the lowliest, makes the person slothful, irascible, obstinate and obdurate, servile and soft and incapable of anything; furthermore, agitated by an insatiable craving for pleasure, the person follows not reason but frenzy.… They become blind and, when their thoughts should soar to high and great things, they are broken down and reduced to vile and useless and putrid things, which could never make them happy.... Just as people participate in the glory of God in different degrees, so also in hell some suffer more than others. He who lived with this vice of sodomy suffers more than another, for this is the greatest sin."11

12. Saint Peter Canisius (1521-1597)
Saint Peter Canisius, Jesuit and Doctor of the Church, is responsible for helping one third of Germany abandon Lutheranism and return to the Church. To Scripture’s condemnation of homosexuality, he added his own:
"As the Sacred Scripture says, the Sodomites were wicked and exceedingly sinful. Saint Peter and Saint Paul condemn this nefarious and depraved sin. In fact, the Scripture denounces this enormous indecency thus: 'The scandal of Sodomites and Gomorrhans has multiplied and their sins have become grave beyond measure.' So the angels said to just Lot, who totally abhorred the depravity of the Sodomites: 'Let us leave this city....' Holy Scripture does not fail to mention the causes that led the Sodomites, and can also lead others, to this most grievous sin. In fact, in Ezechiel we read: 'Behold this was the iniquity of Sodom: pride, fullness of bread, and abundance, and the idleness of her, and of her daughters: and they did not put forth their hand to the needy, and the poor. And they were lifted up, and committed abominations before me; and I took them away as thou hast seen' (Ezech. 16: 49-50). Those unashamed of violating divine and natural law are slaves of this never sufficiently execrated depravity."12

Catholics are Sinners but this must not be used as an excuse to Sin. The Homosexual Priests always do this. We are Sinners. Wrong! Christ tells Catholics to Sin No More. Catholics has His Church with all the Sacraments to not Sin No More. God created us to be Saints. That we are expected to be Saints and strive to be perfect as the Father our God is perfect and not a Homosexual and does not condone Sodomy like Cardinal Dolan does very enthusiastically time and time again.

That is your choice. On my part, Dorota, I am at peace with you.

Dorota, I don't need to change my mind in regard to sodomy as I accept 100 percent Holy Mother Church's teachings in regard to the vile sin of sodomy.

Pax.

Dorota, as much as you wish to brand me as being "spiritually blind" and in opposition to Jesus Christ, I can only say that I have but two choices before me in regard to the topic at hand:

1. Do I throw in with your belief that Timothy Cardinal Dolan is wicked, the enemy of God, and supportive of the sodomite mafia?

2. Do I throw in with #2478 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church? "To avoid rash judgment, everyone should be careful to interpret insofar as possible his neighbor's thoughts, words, and deeds in a favorable way: Every good Christian ought to be more ready to give a favorable interpretation to another's statement than to condemn it."

Dorota, I will throw in with #2478.

As I noted in earlier comments, in regard to the parade, I wish that Cardinal Dolan
had acted John Wayne-like...had dealt with the homosexual groups in "cultural warrior" fashion. That is what we all wanted. Well, the Cardinal didn't act that way.

But as I didn't get my way in that regard, am I called suddenly to attack Cardinal Dolan and label him an "enemy of Jesus Christ"? Must I insist that he is a member and/or supporter of the sodomite mafia? Must I insist that anybody who doesn't march in lockstep with my way of handling the parade controversy is an evil person?
I don't believe so.

The fact is that Catholic charity (CCC #2478) compels me to interpret Cardinal Dolan's handling of the parade controversy in favorable light. Holy Mother Church does not wish me to attribute evil to Cardinal Dolan's decision. Time will tell as to whether he made a good decision. Time will tell as to whether the sodomite mafia turn the parade into filth.

It is one thing should Holy Mother Church, via an investigation, find a "smoking gun" in regard to Cardinal Dolan and homosexuality. But until/unless such time arrives, I will allow CCC #2478 to guide my thinking in regard to Cardinal Dolan.

To his credit, Cardinal Dolan declared publicly that the parade is Catholic in origin, begins with a Mass, honors Saint Patrick, promotes Catholic principles, and advances Irish culture, which has been formed by the True Church.

Cardinal Dolan isn't the two-faced fraud in regard to the parade. That would apply to any group who marches in the parade while determined to recast the parade as something opposed to Catholic principles.

Rather than attack Cardinal Dolan, we should spend our time and energy reminding the world that sodomites who participated in the parade actually made themselves look bad. The sodomites crashed a Catholic parade that promotes certain CCatholic principles that reveal the satanic nature of sodomy.

Let us hope and pray that a reflection upon the parade's true principles will inspire homosexuals to turn from their ungodly ways. But as I am just a lowly sinner, may the parade's Catholic principles inspire me to flee Satan as well.

Pax.

The Cardinal's Jester said...

Brave Sir Thomas ran away --
Bravely ran away, away!
While Dolan winks at sodomy
He'll not judge oh no not he!
High on his horse he turned about
And gallantly he chickened out
For St. Patrick's honor he thought meet
To beat a very brave retreat!
Bravest of the Brave! Sir Thomas!

Dorota - Just leave Mark Thomas alone to dream his spiritual dreams in a world that has very little indeed to do with the reality that we can all discern today - here - now. Indeed, from having followed his endless rant for months now, it appears he wishes to be regarded as above us all spiritually - having more knowledge, more wisdom, more understanding, more compassion, more absolutely everything that we, the low-grade proletariats do not have. However, if he adds to the "more" he is attempting to convince us of, I believe he will burst - with pride. Pax or no Pax - that's how it appears to me.

I appreciate all of you and I learn from Mark each time he writes. Let's play nice in the sand box.

Dolan is a fat liar--among other things.
