Quote:Since LifeSiteNews and Pro Ecclesia launched a petition asking our Bishops to take measures to stop homosexual networks in the Church at their meeting in Rome, more than 11,000 people have signed!

Amongst others, Bishop Athanasius Schneider has also voiced his support for our petition, saying: "If the upcoming Summit on Clerical Sexual Abuse in the Vatican will not...highlight the predominant role of homosexual behavior in the clerical sexual abuse cases, the Summit will give a highly irresponsible answer and will be doomed to failure from the start, manifesting thereby also a peculiar form of clericalism.”

But, the Bishops' Meeting is now fast approaching - it will start next week!



Text of petition:

Quote:To: Their Eminences, Their Excellencies, and Participants of the Meeting of Bishops on Sexual Abuse

Your Eminences, Your Excellencies, dear lay experts:

We, the undersigned signatories, are in great distress about our Mother Church.

The unholy predatory conduct of a far-reaching network of persons who are exercising sodomy in the Church and who support a “homosexual culture” is coming to light with increasing intensity.

With 80% of the victims of clerical sexual abuse being male adolescents, it is clear that they are victims of homosexual abuse, and not just pedophilia. All of this is having a tremendously damaging effect upon the honor of the Catholic Church and her members and is estranging many people from the Faith.

Therefore, we ask you to support the following:
  • The emending of the Code of Canon Law to include the norm of canon 2359 § 2 of the Code of Canon Law of 1917, providing that any cleric found to have committed any delict against the Sixth Commandment with a minor, or sodomy or adultery with an adult, be suspended, publicly declared as having committed sexual misconduct, and deprived of any office, dignity, pension, and function if he have any, and in graver cases, dismissed from the clerical state. This return to past penal legislation is urgently needed also so as to punish the sexual offences committed by clerics against seminarians and novices who are not minors but young vulnerable adults.
     

  • A declaration from the Pontifical Council from Legislative Texts stating that the above repristination of the norm of can. 2359, § 2 CIC 1917 against sexual misconduct comprises in its definition of “cleric” any Cardinal, Archbishop, and Bishop.
     

  • A declaration from the Holy Father stating that any Bishop who has covered up for abuser priests will be removed from his office pursuant to the norm of can. 1389 CIC
     

  • That those priests, bishops and cardinals who who publicly or privately promote homosexuality or homosexual networks must be disciplined and, in severe cases, removed from the priesthood.
     
  • That the papal document Ratio Fundamentalis Institutionis Sacerdotalis (“The Gift of the Priestly Vocation,” 2016) be credibly implemented, forbidding the priestly ordination of homosexual men.
     
  • That reparation and atonement for the injuries to victims due to sins against the Sixth Commandment with minors and adults must be made credibly both in spirit and means.

Together with you, we wish to work for the establishment of a movement at all levels of our Church that has the courage and the strength of Faith and true Charity to resist surrender to the Zeitgeist, capitulation leading to the decay of moral standards, and practical espousal of the culture of death.

We pledge our daily prayers for the achievement of the above goals. We pray earnestly that you, the Successors of the Apostles, may be strengthened to fight this good fight with the holy zeal of the Apostles of old. We beseech Christ the Lord Himself, Whom each cleric is called to emulate, to guide and protect you in your shepherding of His Flock, and the protection of innocent youth.

Chastity is part of being a Christian regardless of orientation.

True, that statement was made in context with the topic being discussed.

God Bless
