The Archbishop of Krakow, Marek Jedraszewski, made headlines in a sermon on August 1st and sent the LGBTQ community into a rather astounding, if still predictable, tizzy.
As his Grace proclaimed: Our land is no longer affected by the [Communist] red plague, which does not mean that there is no new one that wants to control our souls, hearts and minds.
He went on to stress that Communism and gay propaganda – which he called the “rainbow disease” – are ‘rooted in the same source’.
Our land is no longer affected by the red plague, which does not mean that there is not a new one that wants to control our souls, hearts, and minds…Not Marxist, but Bolshevik, but born from the same spirit: neo-Marxist. Not red, but rainbow.”
Politician Robert Biedron, who is homosexual, offered this extreme response:
We already had such people, politicians who used similar words and that lead to huge slaughters, genocide. This is an incitement to crime, to hatred
One would think the Archbishop’s words were simply an incitement to truth, the truth of the human person, of what it means to love, of what a family is, a home, in which children might be raised in the truth. If anyone is using bullying Bolsehvik methods, Mr. Biedron should look to his own community, which seeks not tolerance, but obeisance, and conformity for all, to an ideology that obviously false. Many knew that of Communism – that it simply did not work, and sowed a whole lot of mayhem, but, like those gaping in silence at the fat, naked emperor, were afraid to speak out. So now with the the ‘rainbow’ ideology, which has gone from the quasi-mythology of the monogamous homosexual couple wanting to be ‘left alone’, to corrupting mutilating children in the name of ‘gender fluidity’.
August 1st was the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw uprising against the National-Socialist – the Nazis – occupation. It is also the memorial of Saint Alphonsus Ligouri, the patron saint of moral theologians. Would that a few more of our hierarchy would speak out like his Grace, walking in the steps of his predecessor in Krakow, Karol Wojtyla.
As these holy pastors clearly saw, without the moral law, all society will become unhinged, and the fraying at the seams is not reaching the centre, which does not seem able to hold.
