Youth Synod Group Calls Church to Attend to ‘Realities’ of Gay ‘Marriage’, Surrogacy, Adoption

VATICAN CITY, October 16, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A group at the Vatican’s Youth Synod has called for the Catholic Church to pay more attention to homosexuals and the “realities” they face, specifically mentioning “marriage,” surrogate pregnancy, and adoption.

“[...]There is the issue of what to do and how to act with homosexuals, which cannot remain outside of our pastoral activity and other realities such as marriages between homosexuals, wombs for rent, adoption on the part of couples of the same sex, all of which are current issues and favored and sponsored by international governmental institutions,” said a group of Spanish-speaking participants in the Vatican’s month-long youth summit.

This small group was led by Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, a member of Pope Francis’ C9 council of cardinal advisors. The Cardinal has been implicated in a cover-up of homosexual bullying of seminarians in his native Honduras. The controversial cardinal, whose name is also attached to financial corruption, declared that the worldwide abuse crisis was the fabrication of the supposedly “Jewish-controlled” media.

Maradiaga’s group was the only section to discuss homosexuals, surrogacy, and same-sex couples’ adoption of children. The task of the five-language small conversational circles was to discuss the second half of the Instrumentum Laboris (IL) or working document for the Synod for Young People, Faith, and Vocational Discernment.

It is the universal and perennial teaching of the Roman Catholic Church that marriage can take place only between one woman and one man. The Church does not and cannot recognize legalized sexual partnerships between two men or two women as marriage.

The Church also teaches that the deliberate creation of a child outside of his or her parents’ marriage is a grave evil. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, "Techniques that entail the dissociation of husband......

Why the heck not? They choose to exclude themselves by their activities.

Now if it is a person who sees the need to change then that is a completely different thing and they should be given help and comfort as they do so!

These pastoral questions do arise, however. There is a 3rd grader in our parochial school, enrolled by her single mother (no problems enrolling the girl) but now they've learned her mother has "married" another woman. I have nothing to do directly with our school. but I know people are worried that both "mothers" will want to come to parent events.

What do you do? What do you think?

These kinds of questions do come up.

“What do you do?”
It’s the perfect teaching moment, so use it to show what unrepentant sin looks like, what not to to/be or do, and it gives a chance to open Holy Scripture to prove that the Lord doesn’t approve of unrepentant sin whether sexual or other. Show the love of Christ and teach at every opportunity.

specifically mentioning “marriage,” surrogate pregnancy, and adoption.

Sodomite "marriage" is a sham, and a fraud, and in no way can be tolerated by any Christian.

Surrogate pregnancy is a perversion.

Allowing sodomites to adopt children is child abuse.

Children being raised by homosexual “couples” is child abuse. No Catholic church or school should condone, tolerate, or ignore such abuse.

Cut out the rot. It’s the only answer. I’m sorry but radical homosexual behavior requires artificial new hosts since there is no natural method of spreading. Push them out. It’s no different than amputation of gangrene limb.

From Rudyard Kipling, a century ago:

On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "The Wages of Sin is Death."

Note that in 2 Peter chapter 2 the Apostle warns us about the false teachers within the church and he does so in the harshest terms. He says their method to corrupt the flock will be using sensuality and their motive is greed. Sound familiar?

"What do you do? What do you think?"

I think the school should accept the little girl and continue to teach her the whole counsel of God - her soul is at stake. I'm sure the "parents" will quickly remove her but perhaps she can be taught enough before then to plant a seed.

Most homosexuals were sexually molested as children.

They seek to normalize their behavior to achieve easier access to MOLEST YOUR CHILDREN!

>http://www.patheos.com/blogs/warrenthrockmorton/2009/06/05/a-major-study-of-child-abuse-and-homosexuality-revisited/<

On page 37, the other relevant result relates to men.

The 13th research question addressed, of homosexual men who have been molested, what percentage were molested before self-identification as homosexual men, and what percentage were molested after self-identification as homosexual? Of homosexual men who were molested, 68% were molested before self-identification as homosexual, and 32% were molested after self-identification as homosexual.

My judgment at this point is that the little girl is entirely innocent, and should not be given cause to think, "I didn't do anything wrong, but 'they' they excluded me and shunned me."

The bio mother and her consort should realize that if they have her enrolled in a Catholic school, she has a right to be taught Catholic doctrine, including that marriage consists on one man and one woman only.

And the "lesbian moms" should not expect to be accommodated in their couple-hood. One is the mom; the other is basically no relation that can be recognized by the Church or the Catholic School.

If they are offended by this and want to pull the little girl out of the school, then that's on their conscience. We should neither reject, not spotlight, or isolate her. And as a baptised Catholic in communion with Christ, the little girls has a right to true Catholic instruction and the sacramental life. Inasmuch as that is up to us, that is what we should do.

All this gets changed quick if the "lesbian moms" talk or act in a challenging way to turn this into a confrontation.

It's a tough situation, because the little girls has the right not only to participate in the Church, but also to be raised in a Catholic home. But that part is beyond our control.

Some Roman Catholic please explain what the "Youth Synod" is, organizationally speaking.

Is it in fact an official part of the Church?
