Mortal Sin Against the Fifth Commandment – Sterilization

The Fifth Commandment: “You Shall Not Kill”

stone-tablet-fifth-commandmentSterilization

Sterilization is the act in which a man or a woman intentionally go through either a physical or chemical surgery that renders themselves incapable of reproducing. It is essentially the same as if you were to neuter your male pet or spay your female pet.

There are several different methods in which poor souls can sterilize themselves:

Vasectomy (male): When the tubes that carry the sperm are severed. Can be reversed, but is not guaranteed to be successful.

Tubal ligation (female): Similar to above. The tubes are tied so that an egg can not drop and sperm can not get to the egg. Reversal is more successful.

Hysteroscopic sterilization (female): Permanent sterilization. No reversal.

Hysterectomy (female): Removal of the uterus and potentially the womb. This is permanent. There are exceptions to this procedure.

Intentionally sterilizing yourself or forcing another individual to sterilize themselves is a mortal sin because you are killing a part of your body. You are murdering a perfectly healthy aspect as reproduction is the normal and healthy aspect of being a person.

Men are always able to reproduce, and women over time will not be able to reproduce after they go through menopause. This is natural. It is the way God created it.

Sterilization removes God from the picture of how your body is going to reproduce. You are saying that you know when you are going to create another person. Since most of sterilizations are permanent, much like murder, you murder your body and lose the most basic aspect of advancing the human race. It also goes directly against God’s commandment in Genesis:

And God blessed them, saying:Increase and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all living creatures that move upon the earth. Genesis 1:28

When He said this to Adam and Eve, remember they were married and this was not a commandment to go and sleep with whoever you want. Sex is for marriage. We will go over this in the 6th Commandment.

The healthy, natural, and normal aspect of your reproduction system, despite what society and the culture tell us, is to be able to reproduce. Intentionally destroying this for selfish reasons as not wanting more children is an insult and a blasphemy to God. Similarly to the Original Sin, you become your own god.

In some instances, getting a hysterectomy is not a mortal sin. For example, if a woman develops uterine cancer and she must get a hysterectomy lest she die. This is not a mortal sin as the intention is to save the life of the woman, not to destroy her reproduction cycle. The intention must be to save the life of the patient in any surgery in which sterilization becomes an unavoidable side effect. If the purpose is to intentionally sterilize the patient, it is a mortal sin.

If you have undergone a sterilization procedure for the reason of being sterile, you need to go to confession as soon as possible. You should also attempt to reverse the procedure if you can. Remember also that this post isn’t to condemn, but to lovingly point out error so that you can return to the state of grace and be received into God’s Kingdom.

Pedophilia and Sexual Orientation

Two and a half weeks ago, it was brought to my attention that out in California they are trying to define pedophilia or those that would prefer child sex, as an option of the individual, declaring that pedophilia is a sexual orientation, that its a choice or a sexual preference.

Be prepared because now that it is becoming considered a sexual orientation (or at least that is what they are trying to do) we will have to prepare ourselves as Catholics, Christians and really anybody that doesn’t want some pervert having sex with children, to fight this. We will need to be aware of what’s going on because now that this is considered a sex orientation in California, eventually legislation will progress in the country that will pave the way for the legalization of sexual encounters with anybody of any sex and any age. They’re going to use examples of 17 and 19 year olds who are having sex to tug at the heart strings, you know because 17 is so close to 18 as a perfect example why we need to lower the age of consent.

Now some people would say that I’m being extremely pessimistic in thinking that we’re going to start legalizing sex with young children but this is what happened with homosexuality. Way back when, probably in the 50’s or so, it was considered insanity if someone said they were a homosexual. If you were openly homosexual you were considered mentally unstable.

Eventually, they made it a “hey man, its okay if you are a man and want to have sex with a man, or if you have sex with a woman if you are a woman” and then we saw on television over the years that gay men and women were considered better than there straight counter part. They were smarter, funnier, better looking and overall just a better person. Then, many in this country began to support gay “marriage”, as gay “marriage” is now legal in 15 states. It is considered a “hate crime” to dislike homosexual behavior.

I want to make it very clear that this attitude is wrong. We are called to love the sinner and hate the sin. We are not identified based on what our sexuality is, and this is part of the problem. I am not defined for my heterosexuality. I am defined for the person I am. Everybody has struggles and temptations, even heterosexuals. There are many types of evil out there that are attacking them, such as pornography, masturbation, contraception, adultery and divorce to name a few. There are many other temptations, but these temptations and our sins DO NOT DEFINE US.

Unfortunately, we’re going to lose the war with same sex “marriage”. Within the next 5 years I predict that every single state in the country will have some form of legalized sodomy on the record. This is a great shame considering we were once a strong Christian country, but watch, when gay “marriage” is legalized, they will be shouting for the age of consent to be lowered to the point that even children of any age can be tricked into engaging in this act. They will be tricked because in our schools, they will be indoctrinated that “sex is normal, here’s a condom”. This is how the tricking will be done.

The proper role of sex is in a marriage, between a man and woman, husband and wife, to create a family. Yes, there is the enjoyment aspect, but it isn’t purely for enjoyment. This secondary reason is to create unity between a husband and his wife. It creates love. It cements the commitment that they made on their wedding day. The purpose of sex, is to bond a husband and wife, to make children.

We can thank those who are in power and should know right from wrong. And I’m talking about the bishops and the cardinals who would rather be popular and hip and “with it” in regards to society, the secular media for not standing up to the truth. and now seeing the evils of homosexual behavior as a whole and how its seeped its way into the mainstream of this country for the last 30 or 40 years.

Before gay ‘marriage’ is finally legalized, we will see a call for legalizing pedophilia. It’s only the logical next-step. Brace yourself, we’re in for a bumpy ride.

Fortnight For Freedom 2013

The USCCB has asked all American Catholics to celebrate the Fortnight for Freedom beginning today, June 21 and going through July 4.

The Fortnight for Freedom asks us all to pray and fast for religious freedom. This was started last year in response to that awful HHS Mandate forcing all religious employers to violate their consciences in regards to contraception. Ironically, those in favor of on-demand contraception will tell you to stay out of their lives in the bedroom, but will then immediately demand that you give them free contraception…
Regardless, there are many things on the USCCB’s website for what you can do. They even have a page that lists off various activities going on within your diocese.
God can do much for us in prayer, we just have to ask for it. My suggestions would be to make a daily sacrifice (fast) from something you enjoy. Whether it be a food, beverage, activity or anything that you enjoy. Sacrifices are good. I’d also encourage prayer for conversions, Adoration Hours, Daily Mass intentions, Rosaries, Divine Mercy Chaplets, really, the list goes on and on, but do something.
As families gather around the dinner table and talk about what’s going on. Inform your children about the dangers this would lead to. If you can as a family go to activities that your diocese or parish is doing, go. The Catholic Church is in trouble in America, as evidenced by everything our President has done, said or implied.
Catholic martyrdom is coming in America, and really, is already here in some forms. Pray that we don’t have to undergo this test, pray for conversions of those threatening us, and most importantly, pray that you have the strength and grace needed if you are to be martyred.
Remember, those who are martyred are granted straight entrance into Heaven.

Chelsea Clinton Admits She Wishes She Hadn’t Been Born

At least not directly. From LifeNews:

New York, NY (CFAM) — From the stage at the recent Women Deliver conference, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea revealed that her much-admired maternal grandmother was the child of unwed teenage parents who “did not have access to services that are so crucial that Planned Parenthood helps provide.”
Chelsea’s grandmother was born of an unintended pregnancy. And new research shows that her family is not alone in treasuring a person who – if Planned Parenthood had been successful – would not have been born.

How can you not derive that conclusion? The irony of her statement really boils down to this…had my great grandparents been able to have access to contraception or abortion, my grandmother wouldn’t be here, which in turn means Hillary Clinton wouldn’t be here, which in turn means I wouldn’t be here.

Unfortunately, had she thought things through properly, she would realize that had the organization that she is currently touting been successful, she would not exist.

Really, this argument can be applied to anyone who favors contraception or abortion for this very reason.
