God bless Ron DeSantis. He has smoked out the groomers. What we have learned from the “Don’t Say Gay” Bill is that the gays want to say and say and say and say and say.
The love that dares not speak its name simply cannot shut up. And what we have known all along is that they are eager to groom the little ones. The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus actually sang that they are coming for our children. And now they are having hissy fits that their grooming must stop, at least in Florida and at least among the littlest ones. If you have seen some recent TikToks, the groomers do not intend to stop.
We salute DeSantis and his colleagues. But would you like to know who got there first? Do you want to know the first government that banned the teaching of “non-traditional” sexual relationships to children? The Russians. This was way back in June 2013. And by my estimation, this was when the sexual left, that is, the Democrats, turned against Russia.
Do you remember Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s cozy photo op with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, where they jointly pushed a red button that Hillary incorrectly thought said “reset?” That was in 2009 and was meant to rejuvenate U.S. relations with Putin et al. Care to guess where that ended? Correct, in 2013, roughly when the Russians instituted their federal anti-grooming bill. More than 100 international human rights praised the new law.
The sexual left went nuts like they are doing now. It is a human rights violation if they do not get access to children. At the time, I wrote in The Catholic Thing about the reaction of the gay presidium. Homosexual playwright Harvey Fierstein nearly had an aneurism in The New York Times. He hyperventilated that Russian parents who speak positively about homosexuality could have their children taken away. (Note: this is now happening in the United States over parents objecting to the gender confusion of their children). Fierstein said such parents could be jailed under the Russian law. He said tourists could be jailed.
I was in Russia that summer and decided to see what I could see of these claims. I stayed at the legendary Metropol Hotel right near the Kremlin and within sight of the Lubyanka Prison, where Stalin had so many people shot. As I wrote at The Catholic Thing, I saw a post-op transexual man casually strolling down the street in black Capri pants and a tight sweater open to expose his new breasts. He did not seem to be afraid.
Near the Bolshoi Theater, I spotted three hairy men in dresses. No one seemed to care. So, I went online and searched for “gay Moscow.” Believe me, there is lots of “gay Moscow”; nightclubs, restaurants, even bathhouses. There are even two “gay beaches” in St. Petersburg. Russian friends told me there were openly gay characters on television, gay newsmen, etc.
What Russian leaders were on about, just like DeSantis, was keeping homosexual/trans propaganda out of schools. The sexual left was happy to do business with Putin and his gang up to then. But after the propaganda bill, the “reset” ended. Russia and Putin became the great devil. Was it all over abnormal sex?
In recent days, the serpentine British pundit Douglas Murray has said conservatives have a Putin problem and that using the correct bathroom is the wrong way to consider a foreign policy. I would say to out-and-proud Murray that his friends on the sexual left changed their foreign policy precisely on the question of his favorite sexual act. It started with the Russian laws keeping homosexuality out of the schools.
Murray, who has some very queer ideas about sex, said it is not very important to know which bathroom to use. That little children are being indoctrinated into utterly false notions of human sexuality is one of the most important issues of our time. Murray can sneer all he wants.
That the Russians were right about opposing child grooming does not make them right about what they are doing in Ukraine. It is an illegal war. I condemn it without reservation. But I do know that a part of it is the question of defining the West that Ukraine may join. Does Ukraine join the West that imposes the sexual revolution on EU member states and the rest of the world, the West that withholds EU money from Poland and Hungary because they have passed laws shielding children from sexual propaganda? Or does Ukraine join Poland and Hungary in standing up to the thugs in Brussels?
To be sure, the Russian invasion of Ukraine is not about queer sex. It is about empire. Let us hope that Ukraine joins the part of Europe that opposes the authoritarians in both Moscow and Brussels.
The above comes from an April 1 posting by Austin Ruse in Crisis magazine.
Yes. All truth. This is why Russia and Putin are not completely the bad guys but LGBTs and Democrats are. They are coming after children, grooming them for LGBT.
James Martin, S.J., Cardinal Marx, and all their “fellow Catholics” are imposters and Judases by trying to change the Church to be LGBT.
Austin Ruse points out this is war. It’s not a war we brought on… LGBT brought it on. In war you have to choose sides. Which side have you chosen? I’ve chosen, and I will resist LGBT with everything I have.
May God grant the Republicans victory in midterm elections and recapture the presidency in 2024 so that this country can be saved from the course of self-destruction it is on thanks to Democrats and LGBT.
And may God grant the Church be fortified to resist LGBT.
I have a hunch Putin restricted gays for the same reason Hitler kept them out of the NSDAP after Rohm’s murder: because they tend to form rival networks of “boyfriends” that compromise the leader’s control of an organization (about which Pope Francis also is no doubt very much aware). I’m pretty sure the moral health of Russian children was an afterthought.
And now you know why gays should be kept out of the priesthood.
St. JHN was incorrectly attributed with disagreeing with the Vatican I definition of Papal Infallibility. In a nut shell, his position that despite something being absolutely true and something he assented to didn’t mean that it was a good idea then and there to formally define it.
Nothing in this excellent piece to find fault with as far as the premise and discussion goes. But to associate the Russians with heroic stands on culture and family as they are devastating a country that did not attack them is not really balanced by just saying you oppose their war.
Fighting the progressive gender identify agenda is enough of an uphill battle without aligning yourself with a regime that started a war. A broken clock is correct 2 times a day.
Way better ways to make this point.
No reasonable, well-balanced adult could oppose the new Florida law. Mr. Ruse is correct, that Governor Desantis is smoking out the groomer cockroaches. Let’s spray more RAiD to get rid of them.
“It is about empire,” “Putin’s a nut,” and the like make zero sense if you review NATO’s eastward advancement, U.S. activity in Ukraine, and listen to Putin’s remarks over the last ten or so years. The MSM narrative? I can’t see how people buy it.
NATO never has invaded or even threatened to invade a neighboring sovereign nation. There isn’t a single NATO member that hasn’t made a formal request for membership. If Putin is fearing an unprovoked advance into non-member nations he’s projecting is own mindset of diplomacy and war onto the west.
Does bombing Serbia count?
Nonsense. NATO is just the front for USA. Putin doesn’t want globohomo 100 miles from Moscow. I dont blame him
Poland which IS part of NATO asked for nukes to be placed in her
Russia has legit security issues. A minimum examination of even recent history would show you. War in the east 41-45. Napoleon invasion. Battle of Borodino had most casualties until Ww1
We have no business there. And don’t think Russia has USA recent breakage in Iraq Afghanistan Syria etc
Utter nonsense. NATO planes bombed Serbia for almost 80 days destroying the infrastructure.
They elected a senile man to be president. They’ll buy anything, and the media and political elites know it. Everything is spin and lies now.
More reason to hope Russian tanks reach Brussels and replace the rainbow flag with the cross of St.Andrew.
We’ll ask the Ukrainians to leave him a few :)
I’m actually rooting for Russia too
More reason to hope Russian tanks reach Brussels and replace the rainbow flag with the cross of St.Andrew.
Kidding I hope? Look at a map lately? Russia will be lucky to have a jeep after this mess.
If Russia takes Ukraine, they will now be on the border of Poland, a NATO country.
So the same problem, which will make Putin unhappy. He will have to end that threat
by taking Warsaw. Oh Oh, he will then be on the border of other
Nato countries, which threat he will end by swallowing them also. (We can’t have NATO
In other words, the excuse that Ukraine might join NATO is just another Russian ploy.
If Putin can accept being on the border of Poland, then he should be able to accept
being on the border of Ukraine.
Sure, it’s true. Look at Biden’s nominee for supreme court. I won’t even say her ethnic name that I’ve never heard before in my life. She was soft in sentencing pedophiles. They are all after children. If she gets approved to sit on the highest bench, it will be a sad, dark day for this country because she’ll be a lifer on the court. We are a banana republic soon to have a kangaroo court.
I’m throwing away anything Disney in my house.
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
Can a house divided stand?
In 1973, the APA (American Psychiatric Association) removed the diagnosis of “homosexuality” from the second edition of its “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.” (DSM-II) This was due to the extreme pressure of radical, angry, death-threatening actions of militant homosexuals, who resented being “stigmatized,” with definitions and diagnoses of pathology. As there were a variety of theories, but no clear scientific understandings of the exact causes and treatments of “LGBT” pathologies, militant homosexuals demanded that their abnormal sexual feelings/behaviors just be accepted and categorized as “natural variations” of normal sexuality. Because of this, important institutions of our society—- medical, legal, educational, etc.– have no definitive scientific basis to go by, in regulating what is acceptable and beneficial, for the good of society. All that is now seen, is the concept of “fairness” to “LGBTs.” Russia– a much older country– knows well, that a society will collapse, without hard work, discipline, and traditional morality– even as Godless Communists.
I recall well, during the Cold War, when Krushchev warned U.S. leaders, “We will take America without firing a single shot. We will destroy you from within.” Russian Communists have always believed that the West, and capitalism, are corrupt. They believe that immorality, such as in drugs, rock “music” and its “rock stars,” promiscuity, sexual deviance of the LGBTs, pornography, etc. etc. will totally collapse and destroy a nation. And they are right. So, they are very wary of immorality and corruption of their people, which also could topple their regime!
Jesus, I put into your most Sacred Heart the protection of children from those who would pervert them and use them in order to self justify their own sexual proclivities. I place into your Sacred Heart, O Jesus, those who would condemn without offering mercy. I place also into your most Sacred Heart all those who are afflicted with sexual sickness and unchastity, especially clerics and others so afflicted who abuse those tempted toward unchastity claiming to want to accompany those so tempted without teaching them the truth and love of the mercy of Jesus by simply showing them the true mercy of the Lord, “Go now and do not sin anymore.” Jesus, I trust in you. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us. Our Lady of Courage, pray for us.
I’ve disowned all my former friends who vote Democrat. How can I be friends with the enemy within?
“I’ve disowned all my former friends who vote Democrat. How can I be friends with the enemy within?” Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer (with apologies to Michael Corleone)
Did you read about the pathetic gay marriage proposal at the GLAAD awards? They can’t shut up about their lives. It’s always in your face. Narcissists.
How was it in your face? Did you go to the GLAAD awards. Even I hadn’t heard about it.
Do you want gay sex approved?
James Martin SJ never passes up an opportunity to make a gay tweet even unnecessarily. Like today he posted a tweet praising an actress I’ve never heard of in a movie I’ll never see (West Side Story) for identifying as LGBTQ. Who the heck cares? Just leave it alone Fr. Martin. You’re not going to change the church like you want to. It’s so obvious what he wants and what he is.
The gay men’s chorus is honest about who they are, unlike the pretend Catholic politicians.
I find it easier to love the lost who don’t claim to be brothers and sisters in Christ. They don’t pretend to be something they are not.
As Saint John Paul said, the “new evangelization” is different not because the content has changed but, rather, because it is directed to the baptized. We need to start with those who claim to be in the household of the faith, but whose hearts and minds (and actions) are far away.
We need to pray and work for, by the grace of God, the conversion all, starting with ourselves.
And in today’s news a substitute teacher was correctly and justly fired for handing out rainbow bracelets to students. The gays can’t help recruiting or spreading their filth. Rainbows disgust me now except when they naturally occur in the sky.
Just remember that the political party pushing all this LGBTQ stuff on America is the party that favors dismembering infants and mutilating children’s genitals even over parental objections. That would be Democrats. Funny how there used to be lots of talk against female genital mutilation when it was Muslims doing it. Now that Ts have became the victim group of the year, nothing negative is said about genital mutilation anymore. Strange that. Not so strange actually.
Didn’t the Gay Men’s Chorus perform outside of Lot’s door too?
let him who is without stones
condone the first sin
That would be YFC…
Let’s be clear! Any American who is rooting for the Russians to win the war in the Ukraine is NOT a patriotic American. If you love Putin and Russia so much perhaps you should move there and experience live under an authoritarian state led by a butcher and a war criminal.
Lets be clear you are being played…Zelensky is a thug who has actual Nazi’s fighting for him. We helped overthrow a duly elected president in 2014, whats happening is called blow black. Ukraine is not work a drop over American soldiers blood. We are already living in an authoritarian state run by the Democrat party, Big Tech and their allies in the media. As for butchery please refer the 60mm unborn killed since abortion was made legal, until the USA becomes a Catholic confessional state or at the very least recognizes the natural moral, we are a dying nation
Even if we take you at your word that “”we” helped overthrow a duly elected president in 2014″, how does that possibly justify Russia’s invasion, subsequent bombing of civilian neighborhoods, and now apparent torture and rape? That doesn’t make any logical sense. Even if Russia was somehow a democracy, and a defender of democracy, democratic countries don’t invade other countries and commit war crimes to revenge a predecessor’s presidency. That’s just crazy talk.
Bohemond: a statement signed by over 300 historians who study genocide, Nazism and WWII strongly objects to Putin’s claims of fighting Nazi’s in Ukraine. It is pure Russian propaganda. Your comments about the political situation in the USA are ridiculous. For the most part, the republicans have been in charge since 1980 and they have made a mess of things. If one supports the Constitution of the United States, as I do, then one does not support a USA as a Catholic Confessional state since the Constitution guarantees the freedom of religion. Again, I challenge you to go live in Russia. My family escaped from a communist country many years ago – we know what it is like to live under a dictatorship. Man up! Back up your cheap rhetoric with bold action and move to Russia! As for me and my family, we love the United States of America. Even with all of its flaws it is still the best country in the world.
Simensky, We are dying nation who has turned its back on God, and worships sexual deviancy in the name of “freedom”.
Try and state unpopular option like marriage is between man and a woman or the lies of this trans nonsense see what happens to you. You will be crushed by a leftwing mob.
“Even with all of its flaws it is still the best country in the world. “….after 60 million abortions since 1973, for whom is it “the best country “?
It is highly unlikely President Zelensky of Ukraine is working with Nazi’s in Ukraine. The man is Jewish! To assert the Nazi claims is to support the “big lie” of Putin.
Wrong Wilma, look up Azov Battalions, and how they ethnical cleansed the Dombas region of ethnic Russians.
Bohemond: stop living in your fantasy world, man up and move your perfect self to Russia. Sexual deviancy has been around for a long time. There may not be as much sexual deviancy in Russia but you can bet your sweet behind that our beloved Catholic faith is restricted and monitored there as well. Good luck in Moscow… or Siberia!
Simensky, I will take the Cross over the rainbow flag, which now flies in many Catholic parishes.
No, it doesn’t.
Bohemond: I challenge you to identify 5 Catholic parishes at which the Rainbow flag flies. Like many supporters of authoritarians, you just do not want to do the hard work to persuade others to support your policies. Instead you lazily support some dictator who will IMPOSE some of what you want on the populace. I will send you my old telogrika – a Russian jacket- to you in Moscow if you provide your new address.
Here you go little man
St. Francis Xavier – 14th street NYC, (known for their Trans “eucharistic ministers” as well)
Church of St Paul the Apostle Lower Midtown NYC,
Church of St. Francis of Assisi Midtown Manhattan NYC,
Church of St. Ignatius Loyola Upper East Side NYC
Most Holy Redeemer Sodom by the Sea….CA
What I want is the entire LGBT syndicate punished and jailed for the filth they unleashed on society and I especially want every last gay cleric thrown out of the priesthood and the Church. ….You lose
I called everyone of the parishes you listed above and spoke with three pastors and two parish secretaries. All five reported that the “rainbow flag is not displayed in the sanctuary of the church, in the interior of the church or on the flag pole at the church”. One of the parish secretaries said that a “rainbow flag may have been displayed during a parish festival (a couple of years ago) at a booth for the Courage program in the parish. Four of the five parishes reported that a program for Catholics with same sex attraction is offered and that the program follows the guidelines set forth by Courage International- an approved apostolate of the Church.
Since I live in NY and you don’t, I know what I see, . You mean you don’t think that these gay friendly pastors will not lie to you? These parishes encourage a gay sub culture there is never a call to repentance. They march openly in their shame parades.
These parishes are haven of gay filth and if we had any real leadership in the Church they would be shut down.
And that is one of the reasons why you don’t attend a Catholic Church, right?
Wrong snk I attend an authentic Catholic parish where sin is not celebrated and promoted .
Click here to see a photo of the evil rainbow flag upstaging the altar at St. Francis Xavier parish in New York City:
Parishes with LGBT ministries often lie about what they are and what they do. They lie to cover the evil they are condoning.
you can see from the text that this was one weekend 5 years ago.
But thanks for the picture.
absolutely, positively right,, check this out https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/06/nyregion/gay-parish-new-york-city.html it contradicts everything Simensky stated, so either he is lying or the people he called are…
