Transsexual virgins in new Madrid Lay Calendar [Sacrilegious Mockery of BVM] (Ecumenical)
Typically Spanish ^ | 10/17/2009 | n/a

Posted on 10/27/2009 9:38:36 AM PDT by Pyro7480

The calendar has been produced by the Madrid Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transsexual collective COGAM

Controversy in Madrid with the launch of a 2010 lay calendar which shows images of ‘transsexual virgins’ recreating religious scenes decorated with crowns, condoms and phallic symbols.

The lay calendar takes the religion out of the dates of the year, so Christmas Day becomes the day you eat the traditional Spanish turron to mark International Democracy Day, for example.

The images are all based on famous Catholic images and iconography. The Venezuelan photographer who assembled the calendar, Juan Antinoo, had been commissioned by COGAM, the Gay, Lesbian, Transexual and Bisexual Collective in Madrid. He told El Mundo that the idea was to break the moulds of the generation which had been brought up with a Catholic education. He said he was not worried that he would be called irreverent.

‘What really concerns me is that message of the importance of using a condom gets out there.’

More information, from Spain: Calendar features transgender models posing as the Virgin, controversy follows

On sale to raise funds for the LGTB Collective of Madrid (COGAM), its authors say that it's meant to be a "secular calendar" and that it each page suggests alternate ways to celebrate religious holidays.

"Wherever it's noted that December 25 is Christmas, a candy sweet should be eaten on behalf of International Democracy Day" is one example.

Venezuelan photographer Juan Antinoo, author of the images, says that he doesn't see why they should be considered controversial.

"It's not something that worries me, what truly is important is that the message gets out there; which is the importance of the use of a condom" he said. "They are interpretations of religious images, not copies," he added, "I sincerely don't think anyone should be offended by them".

Probably not, because Catholic aren’t a “protected minority.”

One wonders why they are so obsessed with Christianity. Why don’t they just invent a religion and go practice it, and not bother anybody?

- because they are not happy with themselves. They know they are weird but won’t admit it. They blame the Big Bad Catholic Church for reminding them that they are weird.

“Virgin,” as in they’re depicting the Virgin Mary, who is at the completely opposite spectrum from them.

From ‘America Needs Fatima’

Send your instant e-protest to the Minister of Justice of Spain against a calendar that shows the Fatima apparitions in a perverted and homosexual sense:

https://www.americaneedsfatima.net/campaigns/E0075/protest-terrible-blasphemy-to-our-lady-of-fatima.html

October 26, 2009
My heart is sick to tell you, but...

...as Catholics, we must defend Our Lady’s honor, especially when She is blasphemed, and shown half-naked!

According to press reports, homosexual groups in Spain published a calendar that has horrific, unspeakable blasphemies against Our Lady of Fatima and other Marian apparitions!

Besides a man that is practically naked alongside Our Lady, the calendar has “images that are based on famous works of sacred art, especially apparitions of the Virgin Mary, but interpreted by transsexuals.

“In the ‘Secular Calendar,’ each month is represented by a free interpretation of famous scenes of Catholic imagery, such as Our Lady of Fatima and the three shepherd children. But redecorated with homosexual esthetics.”

“The scenes show saints dressed as drag queens, using crowns, necklaces, bracelets, and colored condoms with applicators and vibrators attached to the crowns.”
Moreover, the homosexual group behind the calendar suggests December 25 be officially declared the Day of Democracy instead of Christmas. (BOL Noticias, online 10/19/09). http://noticias.bol.uol.com.br/internacional/2009/10/19/ult36u47296.jhtm
-— (Access with caution).

As Catholics, you and I cannot remain silent before such blasphemous insults to Our Lady and the Catholic faith! No matter where in the world it is.

So please send a protest message NOW via email to the Minister of Justice in Spain.
It’s vital that you send your message right away. I don’t believe the honor of Our Lady has ever been attacked like this before in history. Ever!

You and I, and tens of thousands of Americans MUST speak out against this and spread our just outrage to other countries too. And, with God’s help, our prayers and protest may become so huge that the authorities in Spain will enforce the country’s anti-blasphemy laws, and prohibit this blasphemous calendar.

How wonderful that would be!
For love of Our Blessed Mother, please pray this happens.

So please send your e-message today to the Minister of Justice of Spain.
And consider forwarding this email message to all the Catholics you know.

And since the honor of Our Lady was insulted in the worst way ever, you and I MUST offer the most fervent and widespread act of reparation possible at this time.

To join our nationwide, even worldwide campaign of reparation, please go here to download and pray these acts of reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Thank you for joining me in this fervent, filial and global act of reparation in face of such a vile, unspeakable blasphemy against our dearest and purest Mother.
May God bless you!

Sincerely in Jesu et Maria

PS -— Please send your instant e-mail protest against this blasphemy to the Minister of Justice of Spain.

Above all, please pray that our protest be blessed by God, and that hundreds of thousands of Americans join Catholics worldwide in defending the holy honor of Our Lady against this vile calendar.

I was being sarcastic.

Boring.

Transexual virgin?....you have got to be kidding..that comment is a scream. The stench of hell, satan and his cohorts is strong these days as the most high Virgin Queen roams the world looking for souls to save. The battle is fierce, but her Heart triumphs. I pray for those pathetic souls that are in the grip of those very long claws of the enemy. Come away you fools, before you say yes forever to the sulphur and filth that wait beyond, it is for all eternity you know....you are worth so much more.

The first, and currently the only, comment is good.

(In case it is removed:
"The photographer isn't concerned about being called irreverent? How does he react to being called an odious degenerate whose offerings are so pathetic he needs controversy to bring them to attention? We prefer him and his photographical posturings to remain in Satan's sewer where they best belong. Leave true art to the Church and to places of high, not low, culture.")

nOOb alert. suspicious post. Sign up date today, Oct.27, 2009.

It' s not the Blessed Virgin who has the ability to save anyone's soul, much less being "queen". Where do you come across such doctrine?

Not in official catechism, I take it.

Are you too one in the same, just here playing games?

Overplayed. Should have been more subtle, but couldn't help yourselves?

RM, could you check these two's IP's to see if they are one in the same? I'm catching a "wiff" of something here, not quite right.

Why would you ever think that these 2 posts were ever connected? I find that very interesting. Yes the Virgin Mother of God is a Queen, Queen of the Universe, Queen of Heaven and Earth, Queen of us all, mediatrix and coredemptrix in the salvation of all mankind. she loves us all and only wants us to get to heaven forever...remember we NEVER die. Are you a catholic, I hope you say no, because I will feel let down that you were failed by your religious teachers. Satan’s greatest fear, is, of the all powerful Queen of heaven, that is after Love, which is the Most Holy Trinity....oh and the wonderful archangel Michael. The spanish calendar is an attack from Satan on the one he most fears, he spews his filth, his time is short, we are only a small part of the battle. Join the fight, align with the Queen, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary. Do you know about Our Lady of Fatima? Do not fear as the battle intensifies, DO NOT FEAR....words of John Paul 2, words of Fr. Gobbi. We are in starwars 7MMmag, and when you understand it, the glass is as clear as brilliant crystal.

I would remind the Gay community they can not at the same time ask us to “leave us alone” and pull stunts like this.
