The Crisis: Our Church and Country, Part 4

IV      The Administration on Sex Education

Planned Parenthood on Education
From an article “The Kingdom of God vs. the Kingdom of Satan”
Planned Parenthood (PP) [who the administration strongly supports] comes into the schools as the purveyor of pagan sex education courses that teach the children to do whatever pleases them. They then offer the youngsters – without knowledge or consent of the parents – various forms of contraceptive devices. (PP) intentionally gives the youngsters cheap and faulty contraceptives that when the devices don’t work, and the youngster finds herself pregnant, (PP) is there to sell her an abortion without knowledge or consent of the parents and has turned a blind eye to activities protecting pimps and their sex trafficking of under age girls.

Pro-life activist Helen Westover said in an expose of (PP) and its legacy: It is one of the most wicked and anti-life organizations on the face of the earth. She said, “Abortion is the symptom but (PP) is the problem. You are never going to stop abortion unless you attack and defeat Planned Parenthood.” Catholic Family News

Analyzing records from 20 years of Planned Parenthood activity, the AUL report found widespread evidence of problems including the misuse of federal funds, failure to report sexual abuse of minors, efforts to thwart parental-notification laws, cooperation with criminal activities such as prostitution, inappropriate use of abortifacient chemicals, and distribution of inaccurate information about the medical effects of abortion and of contraceptives.

“There can be no true education which is not wholly direct to man’s last end,” Lord, Pray for us.




V      The Church on Sex Education

”The Kingdom of God vs. the Kingdom of Satan” From the article in Catholic Family News:
The evolution of Sex instructions in schools.
In 1990 Mrs. Engel published the book Sex education, the Final Plague. Her talk at this year’s CFN conference recapped this history of “Catholic” sex education, which is promoted in the name of Vatican II.

Pope Pius XI formally condemned classroom sex education in his great encyclical Divini Illws Magistri, on the Christian Education of Youth. Pius XII also condemned classroom sex-ed, as did the American bishops who in their 1950 statement said, “We protest in the strongest possible terms against the introduction of sex instruction into the schools.”
Catholic Family News

Much to the deception of progressives who interpreted the writings of the Second Vatican Council, and the radical document Gaudium et spes, ‘”The Pastoral Constitution for the Church in the Modern World” contained the explosive phrase, “As they grow older, children should receive a positive and prudent sexual education in matters related to sex.”
This sentence was not placed in the section of the document that deals with parents and their obligations, but in the section that deals with the context of general schooling. The implication is clear. By sleight of hand, progressives in the Church, under the guise of Vatican II moved sexual instructions away from the private domain of parents and into the classroom setting, an action expressly condemned by the pre-Vatican II magisterium.

VI      The States on Sex Education

Gay Rights Movement textbooks
Bill to Include Gay Rights Movement Info in California Textbooks Clears Hurdle By Diane Macedo Published April 06, 2011
The California Legislature could soon pass a bill that would require school textbooks and teachers to incorporate information on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans into their curriculum.

The Fair, Accurate, Inclusive and Respectful Education Act, or SB48, which mimics a bill previously vetoed by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, made it one step closer to becoming law after being approved by the state’s Senate Judiciary Committee.

The bill, introduced by state Sen. Mark Leno, could have a nationwide impact if passed because California is such a big buyer of textbooks that publishers often incorporate the state’s standards into books distributed to other states.

Supporters say that’s a good thing because it will help prevent gay students from being harassed or bullied by their classmates.

But critics say SB48 is just an attempt to brainwash students into becoming pro-gay political activists and ensure that government, not parents, has the final word on teaching kids about moral values.

“Most textbooks don’t include any historical information about the LGBT movement, which has great significance to both California and U.S. history,” Leno said in a statement. “Our collective silence on this issue perpetuates negative stereotypes of LGBT people and leads to increased bullying of young people.”

Critics object to the bill on several accounts, saying it undermines parental authority, promotes gender confusion and experimentation, inappropriately classifies LGBT as a cultural ethnic group, and aims to brainwash children into adopting the community’s political agenda.

“This is teaching children from kindergarten on up that the homosexual, bisexual, transsexual lifestyle is something to admire and consider for themselves,” Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a group advocating against the bill.
Thomasson also complained that the bill does not allow for teachers to discuss the opposition to the LGBT movement or warn against “the negative consequences, that male homosexuality is the largest transmitter of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.”
The bill was approved by Governor Brown, July 13, 2011

Editor note: A CNN report dated 10-18-2011 reports that two married lesbians who have an adopted boy are providing the boy female hormones. The reason being that the boy could decide later, when he is older, if he wants to be a boy or a girl. The Homosexual agenda and same-sex marriage is leading us into uncharted waters of perversion.





VII Politics in the United States

Editor’s note: Some Catholic politicians assert “primacy of uninformed and/or informed conscience” over Church teaching.


Nancy Pelosi: Minority Speaker of the House

US House approves funds for embryonic stem-cell research. Washington, Jan. 11, 2007 CWNews.com
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi hailed the January 11 vote as a victory for medical research.
Lord, pray for her.


Barbara Boxer, Democrat of California
During a Oct. 20, 1999 debate, Barbara Boxer, Democrat of California, joined a caucus [on abortion]: Santorum said to her, “You agree, once a child is born, separated from the mother, that that child is protected by the Constitution and cannot be killed. Do you agree with that?”
Boxer said, “I think when you bring your baby home…” She said more, but what she would not say was “yes.” (From an article in Newsweek by George Will)
Lord, pray for her.


Gov. Andrew Cuomo and The State of New York
New York’s gay marriage law took effect 30 days after it was passed by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
GOP senators said it was Cuomo’s passionate appeals and powerful support in the governor’s mansion and in closed-door, individual meetings that were perhaps the most persuasive reason it passed.
Sen. Mark Grisanti,
GOP freshman from Buffalo, a Roman Catholic, also voted for the bill. Grisanti said he could not deny anyone what he called basic rights.
Lord, pray for our Country


Democratic National Committee refused to acknowledge pro-lifers
During the presidential election of Bill Clinton the “Focus on the Family” organization reported that the Democratic National Committee is refusing to acknowledge pro-lifers within the party. The pro-life group, “Democrats for Life” were denied a link on the DNC website. Kristin Day, executive director of Democrats for Life, said the group was told by the DNC that, because their pro-life view isn’t consistent with the Democratic platform.

Catholics in Political Life
The Church’s “Doctrinal Note on Some Questions regarding Participation of Catholics in Political Life.” The document acknowledges the valid autonomy of the temporal order from the religious order, but it argues that this rightful autonomy does not mean that the temporal order is independent of morality. In particular, the note discusses the duties of Catholic politicians to oppose civil laws that contradict fundamental moral absolutes, such as laws that permit killing of the innocent or that undermine marriage and the family.

Some bishops have said that a politician who consistently rejects these duties and campaigns and speaks out in favor of immoral laws should be excluded from Holy Communion under Canon 915 of the CODE OF CANON LAW, which states that “Those . . . . who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin, are not to be admitted to holy Communion.” This is because support for immoral laws is seen as formal cooperation in sin, which harms the spiritual health of the politician, and also because immoral laws harm the common good of society. One of the main concerns is that, because such politicians publicly identify themselves as Catholics, some people could be led to believe that the Church is not “really” opposed to such things as abortion or homosexual activity. If it were, why would such high-profile Catholics publicly support such actions without any comment from the Church? Such people could be led into sin by such confusing and contradictory witness.

VIII Other Disclosures

The Family
In the United States, Social Security benefits: per beneficiary has declined.
In this country the number of children per family is about 1.9 children per family.
In 1950 there were 16 U. S. citizens paying into Soc. Sec. for each recipient of Social Security.
In 1960 it was 5-1
In 1980, 3-1
In 2010 it was 2-1
What is the cause of this?
There are many factors: unemployment is one of the factors, but not nearly the most important factor. Abortion (The years from 1976-1978 3,905,500 lives wasted from abortion and from1996-98, there were 4,014,160 abortions in the United States) and contraception (untold numbers) are the most important factors. The decline of the population is by far the most interesting factor in the state of the economy.
Lord, pray for us.


California law
[A California] law permits two homicide charges for the murder of a pregnant woman. The law has an exemption for abortion.

The State of Virginia
“In the state of Virginia the law is, as long as the umbilical cord is attached and the placenta is still in the mother, if the baby comes out alive the mother can do whatever she wants to with that baby to kill it,” said Investigator Tracy Emerson. “She could shoot the baby, stab the baby. As long as it’s still attached to her in some form by umbilical cord or something it’s no crime in the state of Virginia.”
Lord, pray for our Country.
