The following comes from a Jan. 5 email from a Mexican correspondent.
The first gay wedding is to be held in Mexicali, Baja California, on January 10. The civil marriage between two men was temporarily stalled on November 21 by municipal authorities that determined that two men could not marry according to state laws.
But, Victor Aguirre and Fernando Urías will legally be married on January 10 after the Mexican Supreme Court ordered the authorities of the city of Mexicali to celebrate and recognize the marriage.
The Mayor of Mexicali, Jaime Diaz Ochoa, said that the mandate given by the Mexican Supreme Court will be obeyed by the city he represents.
The Catholic bishop of Mexicali, Jose Isidro Guerrero Macías, has strongly opposed the marriage since the beginning of the ordeal in early 2014. In an interview with SDP noticias he stated that, “we must not confuse the sacred figure of matrimony with a simple civil contract. The divine order has established matrimony as an institution formed by one man and one woman”.
The archbishop of Tijuana has also spoken against the so called gay “marriage” by stating to the local newspaper La Cronica that, “This is something that most definitely the [Catholic] church does not accept. You may call it what you want but it is not a marriage. Marriage has its origins since the beginning of human history; a union between one man and one woman with the blessing of God. Two men or two women cannot be parents. This act will have [negative] consequences.”
In an interview with Proceso, a national political magazine, Cardinal Norberto Rivera of Mexico City stated that “even with the approval of the Mexican Supreme Court, the [Mexican] Catholic Church will continue to oppose the ‘matrimony’ of persons of the same sex and abortion.”
Sodomites make up only 2% of the population but make up 33% of child sex abusers, proving they have a grossly disproportionate tendency – 16.5 times that of heterosexuals – to sexually abuse children. They don’t give a fig about “marriage” or other homo “rights”, but seek them only because they are stepping stones on the road to their ultimate goal: legal access to underage boys.
So at least 66% of child abuse occurs by heterosexuals, using your logic and your numbers. So perhaps we should protect children from heterosexual men?
Math is not your forte. Heterosexuals are 98% of the population, homosexuals are only 2%. If heterosexuals and homosexuals were equally prone to child sex abuse, heterosexuals would account for 98% of the child sex abuse and homosexuals would account for 2% of the child sex abuse. But they are not equally prone to child sex abuse. Homosexuals commit not 2% of child sex abuse, but 33% of child sex abuse, meaning they abuse children at a rate 1,650% (33 / 2 = 16.5) greater than what would be expected from their 2% representation in the population.
Think of other crimes. FBI statistics (generally covered up by the media) clearly show that certain minority groups, though making up only a small percentage of the population, commit the vast majority of felonies in America. These minorities commit felonies at a rate grossly higher than their representation in the population. As such, as a group they pose a greater danger than do more law abiding segments of the citizenry.
juergensen is correct. When I use to volunteer for Concerned Women for America, they had a fact sheet on those things. I was very young and at that time I was reaching out to homosexuals and wanted to get more information to help reach out to them. What i discovered was very upsetting but I had to look for the truth in order to reach out to them. They did not like what I had to share. I then ended up meeting James Hartline, he is well known back then, so it is OK to mention his name. What a good man, he left the homosexual lifestyle. He became an activist to defend the natural law and expose the dangers of gay lifestyles. When he became a Christian, he went and fought the good fight. He tried joining forces with some Catholics and other Christians to stand up for what is right, attending city council meetings to speak up etc….I don’t know what became of him but I still keep him in my prayers. We need more conversions like his.
YFC, using the numbers of men in the USA as of the most recent census – 134,979,000.
2% of this male population is homosexual – 2,699,000.
And this 2% are committing 33% of the sexual crimes against children.
This shows that the immoral actions of homosexuals is much greater than that of the male population – in regard to children, not to mention their own other Mortal Sins of Sodomy.
No that’s incorrect. 33% of homosexuals are pedophiles while less than 10% are heterosexuals. The rate is much higher in the gay population.
33% of homosexuals are not pedophiles. Please stop making things up
LOL! Now where did I read that before . . . ?
juergensen, I hope you’ll agree with me that it is important to reveal all the facts. There is an excellent article that unpacks the 33%/2% figures you like to quote, here it is: https://www.boxturtlebulletin.com/Articles/000,002.htm
Bottom line is that when you actually look at who is abusing boys, you find results like these, which basically prove that the 33% figure is not coming from the 2% of the population, but is mostly coming from the straight population. Here’s a quote from the article: “Of 50 [molested] male children , 37 (74%) were molested by men who had been in a heterosexual relationship with the child’s relative. Three were molested by women, five were molested by both parents, and three others were molested by non-relatives. Only one perpetrator could be identified as being possibly homosexual in his adult behavior.”
This so-called excellent article says it all: “57% of men who had sex with another man did not consider themselves to be homosexual or bisexual.”
Pro-homosexual propaganda is all about denial and obfuscation.
It’s data, Ronnie. Not propaganda, denial or obfuscation. Sorry you are the one confusing real data with obfuscation.
The truth will set you free. Try it. You won’t be disappointed and will finally be free from your confusion.
The point here is to learn the sad news of the State of Mexico helping two gullible men toward damnation. The Catholic Church needs to arm itself and fight all such homosexual “rights” legislation. Most people now at least agree to tolerate such vile behavior. Yet, such behavior is demonic. Where, oh where, is the Church?
A Catholic scripture scholar who taught at seminary views sodomites and Muslims as potentially the two riders of the Pale Horse of the Apocalypse: Death and Hades (Rev. 6:7-8). Once sodomites gain control of the West and Muslims gain control of the East – both events near completion – these two minions of Satan will turn on each other and conflagrate the earth, bringing the Apocalypse, where “there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” (Matt. 13:42).
I hope this “Catholic scripture scholar” has lost his tenure for teaching such trash to his students.
If an actress and actor act out a wedding scene in a movie, are they now married? Of course not! What those two men did was as make believe as any movie wedding. Marriage is between one man and one woman.
A Lie is a Lie even if a judge mandates you to tell it.
I agree with Tracy’s post. I also think that homosexuality should be properly called an “illness,” or “disorder,” by medical authorities. What is needed , is proper medical help, at least help (as no cure seems available) so that they can live as healthy a life as is possible, with this illness or disorder. And once again, all pervert sex acts, should be illegal! Sex is a responsibility of Holy Matrimony (between one man and one woman, only), and the married couple must, as part of their sacred Marriage Vows, state that they accept all children which God may send them. Sex is NOT a mere “recreational party act” of any sort, as in “doing drugs,” to “get high,” or whatever the babyish, irresponsible idea may be. Sex is a part of Marriage responsibilities! And, even when happily married– you may spend about 2% of your daily life, in bed! You’re not a baby anymore! You have lots of RESPONSIBILITIES!!
Although with the joyous addition of Florida to the civil-marriage equality roster, 70% of Americans now live in 1 of 36 marriage equality states!!! And that ain’t no lie! Go Team!!
“peter” and “Your Fellow Catholic”: You can call it whatever you want, but homosexual sex is a mortal sin, and its voluntary practitioners are committing an evil against God, as well as Mankind. Your sneering, supercilious commentaries represent nothing more than spritzing perfume on a manure pile.
Certainly political “victories” are achieved regarding recognition of homosexual marriage and sex. And, why is this? Because politicians are no longer interested in conjoining morality with policy decision-making. Prior politicians were often men of character, who went to Church, prayed (often publicly), and tried to live their faith.
Now, the only coin of the realm is re-election and the attainment of more political power. Just look at the simply crazy, and anti-Catholic words of now-dead Gov. Mario Cuomo, who tried to make sense of his Catholic “beliefs” with his abortion-focused political power, which was the issuance of death to many, many children. Cuomo wanted re-election, and joy on a larger political stage and believed that only acceptance of abortion would make him “electable” (to quote the also late Arlen Spector (D-PA)). (And, look at the fruit of the Cuomo Tree, homosexual-sexual, living with his girl friend, freely taking communion present and alive Gov. Andrew Cuomo.)
Interesting to be a fly-on-the-wall, er, cloud, when Mario Cuomo was before Jesus Christ, telling Him about living his wonderful Catholic Faith. Cheer on, “peter”, you will get your chance, too.
Not sure what mario cuomo or his passing has anything to do with the love shared between two people. Nobody else gets it either.
“Your Fellow Catholic”: You know very well that it is completely relevant. Like all Zombie-Liberals, you seek to divert people from seeing the obvious, which here is the tragedy of a civil government agreeing to accomodate homosexual sexualits as normal.
Mario Cuomo was an apologist for Catholic politicians that accomodate abortion and homosexual rights, notwithstanding the dictates of their faith. Not too hard to see the connection. The hope is that other governments have a stronger moral character.
What you are really saying is that Baja, Mexico is doing the right and good thing — simply accomodating the “love shared between two people”. Of course, you purposefully ignore the gross and total immorality of their relationship, and the insutl to God that results from those placed in power by His will acceding to Satan.
Instead, you should agree with Lord Alfred Douglas’s characterization of homosexuality as “the love that dare not speak its name” (cited at the Oscar Wilde trial). No one, and certainly no Catholic, should ever celebrate the love of two sodomites for each other. There were places, once, that did this — Sodoam and Gomorrah — but unhappy things happened. Better to shudder, and forbid the expression of this “love” than to put it on the same civic plane as “Mother’s Day”.
Peter i pray that someday you team up with Jesus instead. He is salvation. The group you now call team is not going to get you to heaven. Everything has its end.
Maybe someone should tell you peter that your team may win a few battles now and then but you’ve already lost the war. It’s an enigma to me why anyone would want to be part of a bunch of losers but then there’s no accounting for taste. Have you ever seen those old newsreels of the Germans cheering and laughing in their big, white, neo-pagan stadiums , feeling utterly superior and invincible, saluting their fuher with great reverence. He certainly led them on a merry dance, didn’t he? For too many his reign was too long for they died before they could rejoice at his humiliating defeat, but in reality, it was historically speaking, a very brief time. You may think your side is winning, peter, but ironically, the bigger you ‘win’ the bigger you lose. God will not be mocked. Never forget that.
The Mexican Supreme Court disappoints me. As a Hispanic, this is troubling to me and it is for the people of Mexico, which the majority do not agree with this. Like they did in the Cristeros time line, now they want to commit this great evil against God and His natural law. We must pray for the salvation of these men and pray for the Mexican government to return their loyalty to their Catholic Faith, to honor our lady of Guadalupe!
Does anyone know what country was the first to allow same sex unions?
Denmark I think in the late 80’s.
Abeca asks, “Does anyone know what country was the first to allow same sex unions?”
Yes, tragically it was the countries that followed your example by supporting the militant homosexual activists and telling them that they were “well reasoned.” I see that you are working right along now with peter, who also supports same sex unions.
Galations 5:19-26 Now the works of the flesh are plain: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, party spirit, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us have no self-conceit, no provoking of one another, no envy of one another.
“….Let us have no self-conceit, no provoking of one another, no envy of one another.” Ah, yes, Anonymous, if only as much were practiced universally. Sadly, however, this quote from Galatians is often dismissed by the self styled zeal of those thinking they do good. The very same who enable the fifth columnist to build unabated under the auspices of mercy and charity.
So while we should ask ourselves which country first allowed homosexual ‘marriage’, we also need to ask ourselves what yielding of spirit allowed us to be exercise the false mercy of dealing with the devil.
