“WE ARE NO LONGER WITNESSES, BUT DESERTERS, IF WE DO NOT SPEAK OPENLY AND PUBLICLY”

In case you missed it…

Full story HERE.

“There are some issues that have such moral clarity, that we as a society have decided that the other side is not acceptable.”

This is a sitting U.S. Senator, proclaiming that baby murder is such an absolute moral good, that we’ve now reached the point where anyone opposing baby murder should be excluded from the public forum. Or perhaps imprisoned/loss of citizenship/deported.

Think I’m kidding? Watch the video.

Do you understand the connection between abortion, contraception, and sodomy? Do you understand the logical fallacy of thinking contraception is okay, but sodomy isn’t? Do you understand that acceptance of contraception, abortion, and sodomy by western civilization is AT THE CORE of the devaluation of human life and the overall nosedive of morality? If you really want to understand, and in a way “make sense” of the accelerating insanity in our midst, you can learn all about it HERE and HERE.

In a nutshell, Satan’s battlespace is anti-reality itself. All of these attacks coming at us from all sides are his attempt, since he is incapable of creating anything himself, to replace God’s creation, that is, REALITY, with an anti-reality.

“The final battle between God and Satan will be about marriage and the family.” – Sister Lucia of Fatima, in her letter to Cardinal Caffarra

We are upon the (belated) second anniversary of Cardinal Cafferra’s address to the Rome Life Forum, 19 May 2017, four months prior to his death. I reprint here an excerpt from his speech, and encourage you to read the whole thing HERE. It’s a sobering reckoning of what we are really up against.

This excerpt is from the second part of his talk, after he has already laid out how creation history, and the resultant human condition, “must necessarily give rise to two cultures: the culture of the truth and the culture of the lie.”

I would like to respond to the following question: in our Western culture, are there developments which reveal with particular clarity the confrontation between the attraction exerted over man by the Crucified-Risen One, and the culture of the lie constructed by Satan? My response is affirmative, and there are two developments in particular.

  • The first development is the transformation of a crime [termed by Vatican Council II nefandum crimen], abortion, into a right. Note well. I am not speaking of abortion as an act perpetrated by one person. I am speaking of the broader legitimation which can be perpetrated by a judicial system in a single act: to subsume it into the category of the subjective right, which is an ethical category. This signifies calling what is good, evil, what is light, shadow. “When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies”. This is an attempt to produce an “anti-Revelation”.

What in fact is the logic which presides over the ennoblement of abortion? Firstly, it is the profoundest negation of the truth of man. As soon as Noah left the floodwaters, God said: “Whoever sheds the blood of a man, by a man shall that person’s blood be shed, for in his own image God made man” [Gen. 9, 6]. The reason why man should not shed the blood of man is that man is the image of God. Through man, God dwells in His creation. This creation is the temple of the Lord, because man inhabits it. To violate the intangibility of the human person is a sacrilegious act against the Sanctity of God. It is the Satanic attempt to generate an “anti-creation”. By ennobling the killing of humans, Satan has laid the foundations for his “creation”: to remove from creation the image of God, to obscure his presence therein.

St Ambrose writes: “The creation of the world was completed with formation of the masterpiece which is man, which… is in fact the culmination of creation, the supreme beauty of every created being” [Exam., Sixth day, Disc 9, 10.75; BA I, page 417]. At the moment at which the right of man to order the life and the death of another man is affirmed, God is expelled from his creation, because his original presence is denied, and his original dwelling-place within creation – the human person – is desecrated

  • The second development is the ennoblement of homosexuality. This in fact denies entirely the truth of marriage, the mind of God the Creator with regard to marriage.

The Divine Revelation has told us how God thinks of marriage: the lawful union of a man and woman, the source of life. In the mind of God, marriage has a permanent structure, based on the duality of the human mode of being: femininity and masculinity. Not two opposite poles, but the one with and for the other. Only thus does man escape his original solitude.

One of the fundamental laws through which God governs the universe is that He does not act alone. This is the law of human cooperation with the divine governance. The union between a man and woman, who become one flesh, is human cooperation in the creative act of God: every human person is created by God and begotten by its parents. God celebrates the liturgy of his creative act in the holy temple of conjugal love.

In summary. There are two pillars of creation: the human person in its irreducibility to the material universe, and the conjugal union between a man and woman, the place in which God creates new human persons “in His image and likeness”. The axiological elevation of abortion to a subjective right is the demolition of the first pillar. The ennoblement of a homosexual relationship, when equated to marriage, is the destruction of the second pillar.

At the root of this is the work of Satan, who wants to build an actual anti-creation. This is the ultimate and terrible challenge which Satan is hurling at God. “I am demonstrating to you that I am capable of constructing an alternative to your creation. And man will say: it is better in the alternative creation than in your creation”.

  1. Thanks Mark. I’ve been telling my Protestant friends about this since I first learned of the Church’s teaching. I beg them to do just a little research on how all people, even non-Christians understood the perversness of contraception. They refuse to look into it, or believe it.

    Like our faith, the beauty of this truth is so satisfying to the soul. Keep up the great work.
