Look at this lineup for Obama to meet the Pope next week: a”pro-abortion religious sister, a transgender woman and the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, along with at least two Catholic gay activists,” all of whom openly flout Catholic teaching.
This is the start of a joke, where everyone “walks into the Oval Office.” Come now, Obama, try to be subtle.
I mean, hell, the White House was lit up like a Christmas tree in in gay pride colors, after SCOTUS’ same-sex marriage ruling, so you knew that this meeting was going to go over like a lead balloon already. But this? This is just the cherry on top.
Invitee #1? The retired Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson, famous for leaving his wife for his boyfriend, and being the first openly gay episcopal bishop in 2003. Robinson would divorce said partner in 2014. The cross-dresser in this group is a “Mateo” Williamson, former co-chairman of the Transgender Caucus for Dignity USA, born a woman, now thinks of herself as a man, and yet is still attracted to men.
No, this is not part of a joke. This is an actual quote:
“Today I identify as a gay man and before that was difficult to understand because I thought that in order to be transgender, in order to be a transgender male that I had to be attracted to females but I never have throughout my entire life.”
Pardon me while I bang my head against a wall. After a while, I may even come to enjoy it.
Now, of course, this all comes after Pope Francis has declared that, while on the one hand, he doesn’t believe in judging people, but on the other hand, he’s also stated that Catholics reject transgenderism, and even said that gay marriage is the devil’s “attempt to destroy God’s plan.”
The Vatican just recently made it official that prohibited the transgendered cannot be baptismal godparents, especially when acting as the opposite sex they were born into — because acting as a transsexual is blatantly contrary to the Church’s moral imperatives. Or, in Vatican-speak, “transsexual behavior publicly reveals an attitude contrary to the moral imperative of resolving the problem of one’s sexual identity according to the truth of one’s sexuality.”
In short: if you’re trans, do you think you’re fooling anyone into believing that you’re following anything about Church teaching? Really?
Hell, in the much-vaunted “encyclical letter on the environment,” Francis even wrote,
“The acceptance of our bodies as God’s gift, welcoming and accepting the entire world as a gift from the Father and our common home, whereas thinking that we enjoy absolute power over our own bodies turns, often subtly, into thinking that we enjoy absolute power over creation.”
But, oh, wait, wasn’t that allllll about “climate change?”
Give me a break.
And of course — of course — there is the left’s darling attention-seeking media whore, “Sister” Simone Campbell, invited to the White House for the Pope’s visit. She is the pro-abortion executive director of the social justice lobby NETWORK. Campbell deliberately battled the U.S. bishops during the Obamacare fracas, trying undermine the the Bishops’ concerns about Obamacare funding abortions and undermining the conscience of the physician. She also created the “Nuns on the Bus” tour against Rand Paul. And while she goes by the title of “Sister,” she is not actually a nun, and has been disavowed by the catholic church.
Also there will be Vivian Taylor, who is a 30-year-old male transvestite, and former executive director of Integrity USA, the homosexual and transgender activist wing of the Episcopal Church. Because why not?
Honestly, the next step is for Obama to invite the surgeons from the abortion videos who were laughing over baby body parts. I think that’s the only thing he left out.
