So I went to St. Louis during the Memorial Day weekend and had a blast. Stayed at a super cool hotel and basically behaved like a deranged tourist. It was super fun. On my way to the arch, I stumbled upon the oldest cathedral that side of the Mississippi and I knew of course that I had to go in and check it out. Once a catholic, always a catholic, amIright? And once inside I took pics of Joan of Arc and overall read everything they had posted about the history of the building. I also found a copy of OSV, one of their indoctrination tools. And found the article I'm quoting here.
Almost every television show today has characters that identify as LGBT and, more importantly, promotes harmful messages that go against the teachings of the Church. By watching television shows with your children, you can address errors as you see them either during a commercial break or after the show. Ask what they saw and what is their understanding of it? Depending on their age, you can ask them what they suppose the Church would say about this. This will give you the opportunity to correct the errors and reinforce the truth by explaining why.
Armed with truth
This leads me to the third important task: We can’t plant a seed when we don’t have any seeds to plant. You are gathering the seeds you will need to plant by reading this article. Please don’t stop here. Continue to arm yourself with truth. You never know when God will want you to plant a seed. For this reason, we need to be equipped with the truth.
The church, of course, knows Jessie never said anything about liking dick:
Although in the Gospels Jesus says nothing directly about homosexuality, a judgment — that there is something about it that is not as the maker originally intended — is implicit in what he says about marriage: “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female'” (Mt 19:4).
Nevertheless, they consider me 'intrinsically disordered' (how's that for a punk rock band's name, dear?) and that... "the Catechism of the Catholic Church says such acts “are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity” (No. 2357)." I call bullshit. How in the hell do they know that when I let you fuck me I'm not coming from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity? You fit me perfectly well, thankyouverymuch. And as for having sex for 'the gift of life' I've never been the paternal type. So there. Fuck their bland sanctimony.
The cynicism of the catholic church when directing parents to stunt and repress their kids' sexual orientation is more of the cynicism that leads it to downplay the sexual abuse generations of children have suffered since forever. The church, that has been as horny as they come, and has had many a corrupt head leading it, now tries to suppress any gender expression that may come up in its parishioners. Lovely.
This, of course is not a catholic-only activity. Any organized religion needs to go against any kind of sexual, sensual and carnal manifestation of the human beings because if they control sex, they control the individual. I just find it pathetic that at this time and age, nineteen years into the XXI century, the church still aims to emotionally maim and stunt sexuality. May its endeavors forever fail.
