The Francis Effect at Gay Pride Parades.

Marian T. Horvat, Ph.D.

My friend Jan was upset that Catholic Church officials were not speaking out against the increasingly large number of perverse “gay pride parades” being held in cities across the country, especially in the month of June.

In fact, not only are Prelates reluctant to speak out against the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) groups, but most Prelates carefully avert their eyes when these “gay pride parades” comes to town: no alerts about the sexually perverse acts and blatant immoral clothing, no serious threats to parishes who participate, no warnings to the faithful not to attend, watch or talk about them in any possible way that may to promote these scandalous events.

The silence in this case is an implicit acceptance of these degenerate pageants that celebrate sins against nature. This year, in particular, censorship was sparse, as my friend Jan noted.

An explanation? This is what I would call the “Francis effect” on the “gay pride parades.”
What do I mean by this? Everywhere, Catholic allies of homosexuals are appearing at these parades crowing victory. They allege the 'Pope' wants a more merciful and welcoming Church. At this year’s Boston “gay pride festival,” for example, we had Franciscan Friars from St. Anthony’s Shrine and Ministry Center manning a booth on City Hall Plaza promoting homosexuality.

The booth featured banner, buttons and t-shirts emblazoned with the words “Who am I to judge?” Francis own words, used to justify acceptance of homosexuality by Catholics. The message is clear: “After all, if the 'Pope' won’t judge homosexuality, then how can mere faithful Catholics do so?”

When complaints were made by indignant Catholics, the Boston Franciscans claimed “full support of the Archdiocese” for their participation in the “gay pride festival.” By the way, this year the Boston “gay parade” was particularly brazen in exposing its Catholic hatred, inviting the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” (men dressed as nuns mocking the Catholic religious orders) to be the Grand Marshalls leading the parade.

Not a word of protest was heard from Boston’s Cardinal Sean O’Malley, one of the eight personal advisers of Francis. How can the LBGT persons not translate this omission as implicit approval?

More examples

Let me give a few more examples of the disgraceful Catholic participation this year in “gay parades.” In Chicago, St. Clement Church parishioners marched with Dignity members. Since they marched last year, one might have expected the Archdiocese to forbid further participation. It did not, however.

Although a condemnation would have been edifying for the general Catholic public, it would not have made much difference to many participants. ”We don’t want to be dictated to anymore,” declared one marcher Rob Svendsen, a St. Clement parishioner. He added, “With the new Pope, we’ve all been given a new ray of hope.” This kind of statement was heard often this year. Once again, the “Francis effect” encouraging the “gay pride parades.”

There was the normal turnout of Catholics from St. Agnes, Most Holy Redeemer and other area parishes at the San Francisco “gay pride parade.” There was even a notice in the St. Agnes June 14-15, 2014, church bulletin openly advertising the Bay event, well known for its particularly disgusting public sex acts and sadomasochist displays. This year the police arrested over 100 persons for blatant irregular conduct.

Not a word of protest against Catholic participants – or spectators – of this immoral event in the San Francisco Archdiocese under the responsibility of the supposedly conservative Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone…

In New York City, parishioners from St. Francis Xavier Church and other “gay-friendly parishes” marched behind a banner proclaiming themselves “LGBT Catholics and Friends.” These participants also cited Francis as a reason for their open “witness” and tied their actions to the Church’s commitment to social justice that has led to support for “LGBT equality.“

Seattle’s “gay pride parade” also saw Catholic participants. This year Fr. Whitney of St. Joseph’s Parish posted in the bulletin an invitation to march in the “gay parade” “as a sign and presence of faith, hope and love in the LGBT community.” The priest also announced he would be there to support the homosexuals “who seek to live faithfully in the way that God has made them and the Spirit has called them.”

The Freemasons, who are defenders of human rights, can not wait that the de-Christianization of Europe is progressing. Make experiments with the total Pornographisierung of children, abortion propaganda and gay propaganda. You have once again tried to remove the crosses by Islamic Ministers demanding that in Germany. Also Hitler's regime has removed all crosses in Germany.

Already Karol Woityla and Joseph Ratzinger, Johannes Paul. II and Benedict XI, have invited all the enemies of Jesus Christ and the cross in the Vatican, and then become seriously ill.
This dangerous illusion of inhuman "New World Order" the Masonic is a monument to the vanity of intellectuals, a program, whose unavoidable Schicksal is the failure, like the Tower of Babel an utopian project, thank´s God!

Dr. Marian T. Horvat, Ph.D, I thank you for your presentation. It must have been spiritually painful. Your friend Jan is fully right to be "upset", as I too am upset. "Ideas have consequences", someone wrote. This piece of wisdom should be coupled with "Consequences stem from ideas (i.e., general principles)". You have painted a series of pro-homosexual events (and absence of events, e.g., condemnation by bishops). Let me call them "consequences". Those favoring the events point to Pope Francis' relativistic "ideas", e.g. "Who am I do judge" and the more dangerous doctine of "mercy" uncoupled from justice. So a question: Just when does one judge with logical validity that the human source(s) of the "ideas" represents "ideas", indeed, basic principles, foreign to or logically incompatible with "traditional" Catholicism? The Catholicism of my youth, supported by thinking of centuries, did not affirm or tolerate the "consequence" of homosexuality (based on fundamental Catholic "ideas"), yet under the "new" management of Pope Francis & Co the "ideas" (often sloppily presented, i.e., from the point of view of a logical ordering of thoughts) are simply NOT Catholic (or, worse, the source is, as Louie Verrecchio of "Harvesting the Fruits of Vat II", "materially heretical"? I hope someone can answer this question for me, for I know who I am who will judge.

Thank you, Leonard P. Wessell, Ph.D, Dr. phil., Doctorado
