Synod Deliberately Ambiguous On Homosexuality - Archbishop Chaput

The Instrumentum laboris (working paper) of the ongoing Youth Synod is a "collection of dense social science data with very little evangelical zeal" - "It can’t and won’t convert anybody", Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput told the Polish monthly Miesięcznik Wpis (CatholicPhilly.com, October 17).

Quoting a youth minister, Chaput explains that beyond data and verbiage, the working paper is "very quietly about sex",

"It’s especially odd that the word 'chastity' appears almost nowhere in the text. Humanae Vitae and the Theology of the Body are completely absent."

Chaput does not find in the text a faithful and unambiguous explanation of Catholic teaching on human sexuality, calling it in this regard "regrettably weak".

Instead the document labels people as "LGBT". But, "The Church has never identified persons by their sexual appetites or reduced them to their sexual inclinations."

If we are uneducated, we shall not know how very old are all new ideas.

Fr Martin: "We must include all LGBTQ people in church!" St Paul: "Do not be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy... nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." I Cor 6:9

Why should anyone be surprised? The Synod on Families was a disguised mechanism for heresy, then later approving it by Amoris Laetitia. This Youth Synod has the same underlying theme - only this time it is more deadly....using the familiar scheme of abusing children to change Catholic Teaching. We are living in treacherous times.
