"I am, frankly, saddened by dissenting "Catholics" who are defending Howe and other active, militant homosexuals on their blogs, websites, and Facebook pages. I find their presumption and misplaced sympathy tiresome and even silly."
Thus wrote Sonja Corbitt on Catholic Online.com and she has really expressed the my own genuine feelings on not the homosexual problem but the heterosexuals and Catholics who support them. Below is a sample of their thought.
I agree as I said with Mrs. Corbitt who can be found at www.pursuingthesummit.com and in the commentary section I wrote the following which I reprinted here in order to expound further on this reality of 'brain washed' young people who aren't homosexual (and even those who are, having been brain washed all the way) but see our position as Catholics as primitive, not given thought to the values we have or the ground of faith and reason we have employed to come to them through the grace of God. The very approach they take to the Bible as a mere book and even so, nothing but words on paper that can be dismissed at will is really a consummate evil. They do not even allow that the Bible is to us Catholics what the Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, (Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy) is to physicist. People like Eddie will not even entertain the notion that there is truth in the Bible as there is in Newton's observations.
I could not agree more, thank you for writing this. The problem that we face with homosexuals and anti-Catholicism has more to do with heterosexuals and misinformed or left leaning Catholics. As a person that has had psychiatric care for depression and been hospitalized as well as medicated and has since beaten all of that through spirituality and faith in God (no longer taking any medication and haven't for over a decade) I can assure you that the normalization and pretense of legitimizing an obvious emotional disturbance which manifests itself as homosexual acts will MAKE THE REST OF SOCIETY MENTALLY ILL. How does that occur? It is happening right now, right now heterosexual liberals are lying to themselves when they say they cannot see anything wrong or remotely odd about the behavior and traits of homosexuals. We ALREADY know something is wrong but we decide to willfully blind ourselves to the reality, that means people are willing to lie to themselves because in fact they believe that they can go home and would never have to live with these homosexual people anyway but that is a lie because even now homosexuals are seeking 'marriage' and adoption rights which will change the societal landscape of this country. Make no mistake about it lying to oneself makes one emotionally ill, just like the homosexuals are doing in their life, all because of their pride. Homosexuals really do not want people to ignore their distress in the manner that one by passes a homeless man on the street, possible throwing their small change into his cup, subconsciously they want their distress to be recognized as any one wounded would want another to recognize their wounds, not pretend they don't see it.
The other and vitally important problem is the young people like Eddie who are merely dealing with life in a two dimensional manner. 'Progress will come and the dissenting will evolve', sure, but remember disease progresses also, cancer progresses. Not knowing the difference between Fundamentalist and Catholics, using one worded 'belief systems' such as 'freedom' and 'equality' in the most un-rooted manner is to simply buy into an American mythological template disregarding the substantial differences between times and the realities of their circumstances. The education they have received have enable their absolute ease in dismissing the Bible. In my whole life I remember people having a reverence for even secular writings, book burning was considered a heinous crime but here, the Bible is easily thrown over their shoulders, the Constitution is 'sacred' but the Holy Book of a religion is easily disregarded. Never in my life time have I witnessed such a caviler attitude, the author was right about that.The only way to accept this in my opinion is not just to recognize God but the entire Catholic cosmology, there is a devil, there is Satan and he has effectively commandeered the minds of millions to the point where there is no substance to their thoughts, no depth. It happen when America submitted to chattel slavery, claiming that the African person was not a human being, it happened when America submitted to on demand abortion claiming that the human in it's fetal stage is not a human being and it is happening again as America's attempt to legitimize homosexuality, claiming that we don't know our inner lives to have a definite character. More and more I am understanding the words of Christ,
"For he that will save his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for my sake, shall find it." because essentially people like Eddie are perceiving all things through the fiction that their day to day life is the paramount determinant in all their decision making and pride has become a virtue.
"Behold this was the iniquity of Sodom thy sister, pride, fulness 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 to the poor."
