Dissident 'Gay' Conference in London

Briefing.

From CFNews: In a press release the Roman Catholic Caucus Lesbian & Gay Christian Movement announce that a 'We Are Family!' conference will be held on Saturday, October 20th, at St. Anne's Church, Soho, London. 'This is a timely event for all Catholics, not just our members. We hope parents of LGBT people, priests, and pastoral or welfare agency workers will also find this useful. On one hand, we've seen Catholic bishops in disarray over the Sexual Orientation Regulations, Adoption, and Catholic agencies. On the other hand, we've had a highly positive leaflet from the Bishops' Marriage & Family Department, on welcoming LGBT people in parish communities. There's also been the important initiative in Westminster Diocese, mainstreaming in a Catholic parish setting regular Masses, welcoming LGBT Catholics, their parents and families. This conference will show that the LGBT community is not anti-family, but committed to inclusive models of family for the 21st century.'

It is revealing that a spokesperson of an openly dissenting homosexual group is able to praise a leaflet on homosexuality from the Marriage and Family Life Project Office, part of the Bishops' Conference Department of Christian Responsibility and Citizenship.calling it 'highly positive'. This leaflet lists various resources, some of which contain ambiguities that completely undermine the 1986 CDF document 'Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons' - a document that is not mentioned at all in the leaflet.

Now we know where Philomena Cullen in `Catholic Social Justice`meant when she was talking about the `opne family`. We are developing models of family for the 21st century and two fingers up to Christ who can be ignored on this issue as on almost evey other one. I wonder if anyone at the Conference will mention the wonderful experience so many children had at the Gay Pride March. I am sure the banner carried by the Soho Mass people about Gay and Proud and Catholic and Proud drew a lot of laughter. However we must pray for all those who have been misled by our bishops into this movement. At lest their judgement will not be as harsh as God will afford those Bishops who mocked the teachings of His Son told homosexuals that happiness was to be found in this miserable life style, and paraded themselves to the world as compassionate.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
