VOL. 10, NO. 4

Nov/Dec 2007

Dear Readers:

           

With all of the recent success of the radical homosexuals and their assault on our school children, this topic has to be covered.  This issue covers the Catholic teaching on the subject, the true nature of homosexuality and the agenda of some of the radical groups such as the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Educational Network.
           

It is difficult to understand how our entire society condemns smoking because it shortens one’s life by an average of seven years, and at the same time promotes homosexuality that shortens life by an average of 20 years.  Homosexuality is more deadly than smoking, alcoholism, or drug addiction; yet, our government continues to protect and even promote the propagation of this infectious disease.
           

Homosexual activists use our tolerance for others against us, demanding we accept their lifestyle. We cannot morally do this.  Accepting their lifestyle not only endangers the homosexual’s physical and mental health, but also their immortal souls and puts them outside the boundaries of decency.  In some cases it fosters the seduction and/or molestation of children. It also denies homosexuals the joys and saving graces of marriage and the procreation and nurture of children.
           

We offer several ways you can combat the homosexual/transsexual lobby.  A national organization called Americans For Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH), is one of the few groups that unapologetically and aggressively confronts the issue.
           

I apologize in advance for some of the graphic depiction of the homosexual lifestyle described in this issue; however, it is basically a verbatim account taken from one of the 79 studies reviewed for the article on Homosexual Mental and Physical Health Problems. On a more positive side, we include an article by Dick Retta on one of the 89 cities participating in the historic 40 Days For Life campaign consisting of 40 days of constant prayer in front of abortion centers. Nearly every one of these sites had at least one prayer warrior, and often more than a dozen pro-lifers out in front of the abortion center for 960 consecutive hours praying for the unborn. It was a huge success with hundreds of babies saved, hundreds of new pro-lifers and the renewed zeal of others who had become complacent.
           

The story of our Modern Day Saint is about Father Solanus Casey. Although Father Solanus has been portrayed on TV and lived during the lifetime of many of us, he is generally not well known. He was ordained a simplex priest, meaning he could not hear confessions or preach homilies. His success began when he promoted a prayer group, the Seraphic Mass Association, in which all members had access to the prayers of the entire group. Unexpectedly quick recoveries and remarkable solutions to their problems propelled the group and Father’s success. He had a record of 6,000 requests for help from petitioners.  Thanks to God’s will, there were 700 answered petitions recording cures from cancer to blindness.
