PHOENIX, June 5, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In what is being acknowledged even by liberal Catholics as a courageous move, Springfield, IL Bishop Thomas Paprocki debated dissident nun Sr. Jeannine Gramick on the topic of gay “marriage” before a decidedly gay-friendly crowd on Friday. In a shocking revelation in his opening remarks, the bishop told the crowd that his former secretary was brutally murdered by a gay activist simply for suggesting that he change his lifestyle.

Heckling and insults from the crowd and were expected and received as the bishop laid out the argument in favor of traditional marriage, after which he concluded, “some of you may be sneering, and I might be lucky if you said you were willing to hear me again on this topic some other time… In the end, I hope that at least a few of you will agree with my remarks.”

Moderated by journalist Robert Blair Kaiser, the event was held at Shadow Rock United Church of Christ Church.

The Jesuit alumni of Arizona, which organized the event, called it “Two Catholic Views on Marriage,” but in his remarks Bishop Paprocki was quick to point out that was a misnomer. “I corrected that, since there is only one authentic Catholic view,” said the bishop. “There are two views being presented here tonight by two people who are baptized Catholics, but only one of those views, the one I will present, is consistent with Catholic teaching, while the other view clearly dissents from Catholic teaching.”

Scalia Protest at Princeton Raises an Important Question | Crisis Magazine

When does it become impermissable for a self-governing people to pass laws that will ensure the survival of the things they love?  When they no longer command a majority of the electorate?  Is that the standard?  Certainly among people of democratic disposition, it is a constitutional given that any time a plurality of voters take charge, they are more or less at liberty to set aside whatever arrangements were in place before they assumed control.

In other words, that massive tectonic shift in the culture we’ve been witnessing over these past fifty years, is about to be given formal and official sanction from the political process.  All the awfulness of the culture, as it were, will sooner or later be codified into law.

Isn’t this what the debate over Gay Rights is finally about?  It is not a civil liberties issue; the proponents of gay marriage are not preoccupied with matters of fairness.  What they are determined on is nothing less than the destruction of the traditional family, which is an institution whose very survival depends on the maintenance of marriage as men and women have practiced it for thousands of years.   Now that the popular culture is no longer on board with this, it is seen as a burden that increasingly nobody wants to bear.

THE REMNANT NEWSPAPER: Signs of the Times.

Based upon its 2012 platform, it appears that the Diabolical Party has yet to encounter an intrinsic evil that is not to their liking. Their platform includes tax funded abortion on demand, right up until the moment that a child is born; free access to contraception, sterilization and abortifacients for all women, funded by employers; universal recognition of same-sex marriages and laws that forbid gender discrimination against LGBT freaks.

And that is what the Democratic platform stands for: abortion, sterility, homosexuality. The single mention of God in their ungodly DNC platform is nothing short of sacrilege.

Marriage just keeps on being redefined . . . aparently with no end in sight. It shows what happens when our laws are not based upon objective standards. Things become, at the best, relativistic, and in the extreme, anarchistic.
