Liberty and Virtue

A person who experiences same sex attraction and who endeavors to live chastely in accordance with his religious beliefs keeps an eye out for examples of gay activists' (1) showing intolerance and hatred of traditional religious and moral beliefs and believers, (2) attempting to deny freedom of speech, assembly and religion to others, and (3) trying to cause the government to impose liberal views on sexual morality on society. Other stuff of interest to blogger may also occasionally be posted.

Gay activists do not speak for all those who experience same sex attraction!

Not all those with SSA reject traditional sexual morality!

Not all those with SSA support promiscuity!

Not all those with SSA believe the gay activist ideology of “gay pride”!

Not all those with SSA believe in making their sex drive their primary public identity!

Not all those with SSA support public indecency in “gay pride” parades!

Not all those with SSA support government promotion of homosexual activity!

Not all those with SSA support same sex marriage!

Not all those with SSA support biased teaching in public schools on homosexual matters!

Not all those with SSA demonize traditional religious believers!

Not all those with SSA wish to deny basic freedoms of speech, religion and association to those who disagree with the gay activists’ ideology and agenda!

Christian charity for persons does not require affirmation of sinful or immoral activity!

Cardinal Newman Society's Catalogue of Woe

A Catholic Higher Education Alert email from the Cardinal Newman Society had a horrifying catalogue of woe, showing just how far "Catholic" institutes of higher learning in the country have come in promoting the gay activist agenda. The following items say it all:

MADIGAN HONORED AT LOYOLA-CHICAGO
The alumni association of the Loyola University of Chicago School of Law presented its St. Robert Bellarmine Award to Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, a strong proponent of abortion rights and “gay rights”, at an awards presentation and reunion dinner on October 30. As an Illinois senator, Madigan sponsored and voted for pro-abortion legislation and voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. She also led an attack on “phony” crisis pregnancy centers for refusing to offer abortions or abortion referrals. Chicago’s Cardinal Francis George and Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Paprocki, an adjunct professor at Loyola’s law school, urged the alumni association to rescind the invitation and the university to oppose the award.

OBAMA SPEAKS AT BENEDICTINE U.
Benedictine University hosted Barak Obama, pro-abortion Illinois candidate for U.S. Senate, to speak to students and guests on October 5. During his speech, Obama argued for keeping abortion legal. As a state senator, Obama opposed legislation that would have required doctors to provide medical care to babies that were born alive during an abortion procedure. He also opposes a constitutional amendment banning homosexual “marriage.”
