Homosexual Ideology, Satanic Pride
Spero News ^ | 7/3/11 | Luiz SÚrgio Solimeo

Posted on 07/03/2011 9:45:25 AM PDT by markomalley


June 11, 2011 saw one more parade to glorify the vice of homosexuality. Dubbed, Europride or Eurogaypride, it was held in Rome, once known as the Eternal City, the center of Catholicism. The expression, “homosexual pride” summarizes the essence of the homosexual ideology. Let us see how.

Pride and revolt against God

Sin is a revolt against the order established by God and, therefore, a revolt against the Creator Himself. The more this revolt becomes manifest, the greater is the sin.

Man can sin out of weakness and feel shame for his sin and desire to make amends; or he can sin with special malice and take pride in his sin. In this case, revolt against the Creator becomes more manifest; for, as Saint Thomas says, “[it] is characteristic of pride to be unwilling to be subject to any superior, and especially to God.”[1]

For this reason, the holy Doctor presents “pride or self-love as the beginning of every evil.”[2] According to Scripture, "pride is the beginning of all sin."[3]

Pride, the sin of Lucifer

Theologians commonly believe that the sin of Lucifer and of the evil angels was one of pride. Indeed, having no physical body, they could not be carried away by concupiscence as with man. Therefore, their sin had to be one of the spirit. Two passages from Scripture are usually mentioned to describe this sin. The first is from Isaias:
 
How have you fallen from the heavens, O morning star [Lucifer],[4] son of the dawn! How are you cut down to the ground, you who mowed down the nations! You said in your heart: "I will scale the heavens; Above the stars of God I will set up my throne; I will take my seat on the Mount of Assembly, in the recesses of the North. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will be like the Most High!"[5]

The second is from Prophet Jeremias:
 
Long ago you broke your yoke, you tore off your bonds, and you said: I will not serve.[6]

 The homosexual ideology’s Luciferian pride

To take pride in practicing the homosexual vice and to proclaim this in public in the streets and squares of the world’s leading cities is a sin of the spirit, a challenge to the Law of God. It is a denial of reality as such and an adhesion to a utopia and to a pathological fantasy. It is a manifestation of Lucifer’s pride and a repetition of his desperate cry of revolt, “I will not serve.”

Hatred of the Catholic Church

Let us return to Rome’s “Europride.” Italian newspapers and Internet blogs published hundreds of photos from the march. What stands out most—even more than the wild display of lust and the semi-naked bodies and obscene postures and gestures—is the hatred shown against the Catholic Church. A homosexual sacrilegiously presented himself posing as Our Lord Jesus Christ in dark glasses. 
 
The offenses against the Sovereign Pontiff could not be more vile: a large banner at the front of the march showed a photomontage depicting the Pope with woman’s hair, wearing socks and skimpy lingerie. Below, the words, “[She] wears Prada but is a friend of Satan.”7]

Another banner showed a cartoon of Benedict XVI wearing a Nazi medal, holding a crosier with the Nazi symbol, and below the words, “Nazinger [Nazi+Ratzinger] attacks gays.” Another banner read, “Ratzinger, love your neighbor but not as Hitler.” And yet another, “Real Hell: The Vatican, mental Guantanamo.”  Many homosexuals dressed up as bishops or priests in a ridiculous and debauched manner. 

 
Destruction of the notion of good and evil
 
During the parade, the denial of all morality came across not just through the general in-your-face sexual license but also in scenes such as that reported on under the title, “Rome’s Europride amid Angels, Devils and Spouses,” by Italy’s ANSA News Agency. It carried a picture of two men kissing, one dressed as a devil, with horns and a trident and the other like a good angel, with white wings and halo.[8]


The kissing “devil” and “angel” aptly represent the ultimate goal of the homosexual ideology: the complete denial of the difference between good and evil, right and wrong. Freed from morals and reason, man’s will shall become the only rule; good will simply mean what gives pleasure to our instincts and senses; and evil, anything that crosses us.
  
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil”
 
Does this not remind us of the Prophet Sophonias and his rebuke to those “that say in their hearts: The Lord will not do good, nor will he do evil"?[9]  Unto them is the warning of the Prophet Isaias: "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness."[10]
 

Here is where the satanic pride of the homosexual ideology leads us: it transforms light into darkness and darkness into light and wants to impose this darkness on the world, through the dictatorship of law and the propaganda coming from liberal media.

Oblamao and these DemoRat senators are sadly delusional. What they call ‘getting better’ will be a ‘curse that gets worse’....

Romans 1:22-27

God is not mocked, homosexuals will be judged for their sin, unless they repent *and* retract their homosexual lifestyle completely (100%)

But if they refuse Christ Jesus, or refuse to cease their sinful sex lifestyle, or refuse the convicting ministry of the Holy Spirit, then their sin remains and God's judgment in Romans 1 will conclude them in sin and not saved, but judged by Him, who has eyes to see in secret all sins committed.

I truly believe that Christians have opened the door and the devil is driving a mack truck through it.

Birth control led to the sexual revolution which led to divorce. Both of these contributed to the separation of the state of Holy Matrimony from the purpose God intended, i.e. to bring forth and raise children obedient to Him.

Then, of course, abortion, made legal and celebrated by women, mothers who should fiercely protect the lives of their children.

It is not surprising that sin would now be paraded in our streets. Satan wants us all to glory in our sinfulness, in fact, wants us to reject that we are sinful.

This parade of homosexual pride is just another of the woes released from Pandora’s Box as predicted by Pope Leo X(?) in his treatise on modernity.

Are you talking about Pope Pius X, Pascendi Domenici Gregis?

See not just the Epistle reading for today, but the verses that precede it:

Romans 8:6-14

For the wisdom of the flesh is death; but the wisdom of the spirit is life and peace. [7] Because the wisdom of the flesh is an enemy to God; for it is not subject to the law of God, neither can it be. [8] And they who are in the flesh, cannot please God. [9] But you are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. [10] And if Christ be in you, the body indeed is dead, because of sin; but the spirit liveth, because of justification.

[11] And if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead, dwell in you; he that raised up Jesus Christ from the dead, shall quicken also your mortal bodies, because of his Spirit that dwelleth in you. [12] Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. [13] For if you live according to the flesh, you shall die: but if by the Spirit you mortify the deeds of the flesh, you shall live. [14] For whosoever are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. [15] For you have not received the spirit of bondage again in fear; but you have received the spirit of adoption of sons, whereby we cry: Abba (Father).

It kind of jumped out at me at Mass.

This comes from the twisting of the concept of hypocrisy

All men sin, we fail, we fall short of what we might know and say is good...and in that context all are and will allway be hypocrites to some degree no make how hard you try no to be

But the world now offers you one sure way to never be a hypocrite ever again... have no standards, embraces all you failing, glorify them, preach them...do this and yes you are not hypocrite...

Satan is insidious and relentless in his pursuits.

It is all connected, this open pride in sinful behavior, both hetero and homo sexual, the attacks on the church and the increase in government into our lives.
