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.┬áBrace yourself, we’re in for a bumpy ride.

Rebuke Your Brother?

Upon reading Luke as part of my daily readings, I stumbled upon this great quote from Jesus that I have never noticed before in Luke 17:3

“…Be on your guard! If your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him.”

I suppose what strikes me as the biggest surprise is how Jesus Himself tells us flat out to rebuke our brother if he sins. Obviously, this doesn’t mean that we can only rebuke our brothers, but our family, friends, etc. Many times you hear from those who like the devastating effects of sin something like “Jesus said don’t judge, stop judging me!” or “Love others no matter what!” or something to that effect. But clearly, Jesus says otherwise.

Clearly, we have permission from God, to tell people when they are sinning, that they are indeed sinning. Of course, maybe we are looking at this out of context? After all, there is an ellipsis in front of it!

Jesus said to his disciples, “Things that cause sin will inevitably occur, but woe to the person through whom they occur. It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck and he be thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.”

Well…yeah, its pretty clear, sin is bad, and tempting others into sin is even worse. Sin is a big deal, and its important to remember this. If you know someone who is committing sin and should know better, rebuke them! Tell them they are in the state of mortal sin and need to go to confession and stop their behavior. Its important that they are held accountable for their actions. However, at the same time do not go about judging in the sense of “YOU ARE GOING TO HELL!!!” This is not only annoying and immature, but also goes against Jesus’ sayings in Luke 6:37 ‘Judge, lest you be judged’.
If someone who you know is sinning and they don’t know better, well, teach them, politely and in a way that is not intruding on them but helps them. Imagine yourself in their position. Establish a good relationship with them, talk with them about it. EXPLAIN the reasons why its a sin to them. Most importantly, teach them.
