The obscene travesty of homosexual “marriage” is a priority for liberals not only because undermining holy matrimony helps corrode the family, but because it creates a powerful legal weapon to be used against another of the few remaining roadblocks on the road to totalitarianism, the Catholic Church. The state that gave us Barack Hussein Obama shows how it works:
The state has declined to renew its foster care and adoption contracts with Catholic Charities across Illinois, possibly ending a historic partnership initiated by the Roman Catholic Church a half-century ago and potentially severing the relationship between nearly 2,000 foster children and their caseworkers. …
In letters sent last week to Catholic Charities in the dioceses of Peoria, Joliet and Springfield and Catholic Social Services of Southern Illinois, the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services said the state could not accept their signed contracts for the 2012 fiscal year. Each letter said funding was declined because “your agency has made it clear that it does not intend to comply with the Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act,” which the state says requires prospective parents in civil unions to be treated the same as married couples.
That is, the Church is expected to place vulnerable kids in the hands of cohabitating homosexuals. This has entailed children being used as sex toys.
If it’s this bad now, imagine the situation after Illinois imposes state-sanctioned homosexual “marriage” as in New York, where Archbishop Timothy Dolan warns that a redefinition of marriage to allow for multiple sex partners is coming next.
Pat Quinn carries on the Illinois tradition of governors who exude slime from every pore:
Quinn, a practicing Catholic, reiterated his support of the civil union law and the state’s decision to sever ties with Catholic Charities.
No one who supports the homosexual or abortion agendas is a Catholic in any meaningful sense. To preserve its integrity, the Church has an obligation to excommunicate backstabbing advocates of degeneracy like Nancy Pelosi and Quinn.
Just as the homosexual agenda is destroying Catholic adoption agencies, the abortion agenda can close Catholic hospitals.
The Church has two choices: stand for what’s right, in which case Big Government will denounce it as politically incorrect and break its legs with “civil rights” laws shoved through by the militant homosexual and abortion lobbies; or knuckle under and participate in the depravity, in which case it will rot away and deservedly disappear.
It’s a win-win situation for liberals. Too bad for the cause of “social justice” that their Soviet forebears didn’t think of this line of attack against John Paul II.
