Pope Francis has acknowledged the existence of a “gay lobby” in the Vatican and says he is consulting advisers on what to do about it.
Speaking informally to a confederation of religious groups from Latin America and the Caribbean, he said: “In the Curia, there are also holy people, really, there are holy people.”
But, he added: “There also is a stream of corruption, there is that as well, it is true... The 'gay lobby' is mentioned, and it is true, it is there... We need to see what we can do.”Read Latest Breaking News from Newsmax.com http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/pope-gay-lobby-vatican/2013/06/11/id/509260?s=al&promo_code=13CA9-1#ixzz2VwPAfRlq

Divested priest Paul Shanley, recently convicted of raping several young boys in St. Jean’s parish in Newton, Massachusetts, was associated of the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). As early as 1970 he had publicly defended the pederast enterprise. NAMBLA, according to William N. Grigg (New American, June 3), is a criminal syndicate composed of homosexuals who prey on young boys.
NAMBLA And Homosexual Activism
In August, 2003, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit against the state of Kansas over the state's criminal sodomy law involving children. The ACLU is defending Matthew Limon, a homosexual who committed sodomy against a 14-year-old boy in 2000. At the time of his crime, Simon was 18 years old. The ACLU is claiming that Limon's conviction is unconstitutionally discriminatory because the penalties for sodomy with a minor are different than for heterosexual sex with a minor.
Kansas Attorney General Phill KIine says the fairness of Limon's sentence should be a state legislative issue, not a constitutional one. According to Kline, "If the ACLU wins in the thrust of their arguments, it means the state has no right to say that it is illegal for an adult to have sex with a 13-year-old child." Kline also fears that an ACLU victory will make it difficult for the state to enforce laws against polygamy, incest, bestiality, and other sexual perversions.
The effort to abolish "age of consent" laws has been a long-time goal of homosexual activists. The 1972 Gay Rights Platform, for example, called for the abolition of all laws prohibiting sex with children. The platform demands: "Repeal of all laws governing the age of sexual consent."
In September, 1995, three homosexual activists published an essay entitled, "The State Of Gay Liberation" in Guide, a homosexual publication. The essay was authored by North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) co-founder David Thorstad, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Professor Richard D. Mohr, and San Francisco journalist Bruce Mirken.
Thorstad, of course, is a life-long pederast and homosexual activist who clearly describes the important linkage between homosexuality and pedophilia. In a speech given before a homosexual group in Mexico in 1998, Thorstad said: "Pederasty is the main form that male homosexuality has acquired throughout Western civilization-and not only in the West! Pederasty is inseparable from the high points of Western culture-ancient Greece and the Renaissance." (David Thorstad, "Pederasty And Homosexuality," NAMBLA web site)
Fellow author Professor Richard Mohr, is a homosexual activist who is an advocate for same-sex marriage and has said he hopes that homosexual marriage will help define "monogamy" out of marriage altogether. (Stanley Kurtz, "Beyond Gay Marriage," The Weekly Standard, Aug. 4-11, 2003)
Bruce Mirken is a homosexual and San Francisco journalist who was arrested in 1998 for attempting to have sex with a 13-year-old boy he had contacted through the Internet. When he entered a Sacramento park to sodomize the boy, he was met by police who had been tracking his activities on the Internet. The charges were eventually dropped against him on a technicality.
On his December 17, 2012 nationally-syndicated radio show Thursday, Rush Limbaugh said that “gay militants” run The New York Times (during a segment on the newspaper's editorial response to President Obama‘s newfound support for same-sex marriage)."There’s a movement to normalize pedophilia," Limbaugh said. "Don’t pooh-pooh it"

Rush Limbaugh tied the push to legalize same-sex marriages to a “movement to normalize pedophilia,” arguing: “What has happened to gay marriage? It’s become normal.”
“There is a movement on to normalize pedophilia, and I guarantee you your reaction to that is probably much the same as your reaction when you first heard about gay marriage,” Limbaugh said on his show on Monday. “What has happened to gay marriage? It’s become normal — and in fact, with certain people in certain demographics it’s the most important issue in terms of who they vote for.”
He added: “So don’t pooh-pooh. There’s a movement to normalize pedophilia. Don’t pooh-pooh it. The people behind it are serious, and you know the left as well as I do. They glom onto something and they don’t let go.” ...
The politics behind gay rights goes beyond the attack on the Catholic Church.
My blog post Thursday, August 25, 2011
Not enough people paid attention when Congress passed Sen. Ted Kennedy’s Hate Crimes Prevention Act in 2009. This new law gave legitimate, Federally protected status for every conceivable form of sexual deviancy known and has spawned a continuous downward spiral of morality in America.
Now, in an article written by Dr. Keith Ablow on Fox News, Paving the Way for Condoning Child Rape, this doctor writes;
“But, now, there should be no doubt that our culture is poised to begin embracing pedophilia as a lifestyle choice, just like homosexuality. A group of psychiatrists and other mental health professionals called B4U-Act, which has representatives from Harvard and Johns Hopkins, gathered recently in Baltimore to organize their push to change the negative perception of pedophiles and encourage them to get help in a nonjudgmental environment.”Few people realize that the homosexual lifestyle itself, of which pedophilia is often associated, was always considered a mental disorder until the American Psychiatric Association (APA) voted to change it. In the early 1970s, activists campaigned against the APA Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders classification of homosexuality as a mental disorder, protesting at APA offices and at annual meetings from 1970 to 1973. In 1973 the Board of Trustees voted to remove homosexuality as a disorder category from the DSM, a decision ratified by a majority (58%) of the general APA membership the following year.
Conservative groups waged a tremendous battle in the Spring of 2009 against a new law they had called The Pedophile Protection Act which gave official Federal recognition to every deviant lifestyle. The American Family Association said since "sexual orientation" nowhere is defined in the law, "this law will give pedophiles, voyeurs, and exhibitionists special protections, which is why the bill has correctly been called 'The Pedophile Protection Act.'"
In the House version, an effort to amend the bill to exclude “pedophilia” from the Hate Crimes Prevention Act (HR 1913) was defeated in committee along party lines. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), when confronted with a list of 547 paraphilias from the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, including pedophilia, he declared that “all of these philias and fetishes and isms that were put forward – need not live in fear because of who they are.”
Following the passage of the original Hate Crimes Prevention Act (HR 1913) a storm of protest caused the U.S. Senate to delay a vote because it would not have passed. But a Democrat took the House bill and added it to a National Defense Authorization Act as an amendment and it was passed on July 23, 2009 and signed into law.
No one should be surprised that the ugly face of pedophilia is rising to a legitimate status. It has always been around. One investigation into the Catholic Church pedophile priest cases mentioned that one of the priests had actually been a member of NAMBLA. An article in Wikipedia documents the history of The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). NAMBLA is a pedophile and pederasty advocacy organization in the United States that works to abolish age of consent laws criminalizing adult sexual contact with minors, and for the release of all men who have been jailed for sexual contacts with minors that did not involve coercion.
Liberal Democrats align themselves to every radical element in our society, be it Socialism, Communism, Islam or sexual deviancy and have given them all legitimate status. I wrote an extensive article on one of Barack Hussein Obama's special Safe School Czars that he appointed named Kevin Jennings on Wednesday, December 9, 2009. Here is a repost:
Among the many radical extremists Barack Hussein Obama has appointed to be his Czars is one Kevin Jennings who founded the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network http://www.glsen.org/cgi-bin/iowa/all/home/index.html. Documented evidence has been discovered that shows Kevin Jennings’ group the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) has been promoting deviant sex to school kids aged 14 and even younger in various courses. I strongly suggest that anyone concerned about this investigate the links below and see the proof and the extent of deviant material being distributed through schools. I must warn you some of these links contain transcripts and copies of the actual material produced by GLSEN and are EXTREMELY GRAPHIC.
Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings was the founder, and for many years, Executive Director of an organization called the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. GLSEN started essentially as Jennings’ personal project and grew to become the culmination of his life’s work. And he was chosen by President Obama to be the nation’s Safe Schools Czar http://www.ed.gov/about/offices/list/osdfs/index.html primarily *because* he had founded and led GLSEN (scroll for bio) http://www.ed.gov/news/pressreleases/2009/05/05192009d.html
Breitbart.TV is a respected Internet news site and they carried this announcement last week on their web site.
“On Friday, Scott Baker from Breitbart.TV http://www.breitbart.tv/ and Co-Host of ‘The B-Cast http://www.breitbart.tv/category/the-b-cast/ submitted a shocking report on Obama’s deviant Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings. This report http://gatewaypundit.firstthings.com/2009/12/breaking-obamas-safe-schools-czar-is-promoting-porn-in-the-classroom-kevin-jennings-and-the-glsen-reading-list/ was posted at Gateway Pundit blog. Scott explained:” NOTE: “First Things” and the Gateway Pundit is published by The Institute on Religion and Public Life, an interreligious, nonpartisan research and education institute whose purpose is to advance a religiously informed public philosophy for the ordering of society.
“I was recently approached by a team of independent researchers that I have known for some time and have come to trust. They prepared this report involving ‘Safe Schools Czar’ Kevin Jennings and the organization he founded, GLSEN, and asked that I find a way to help draw attention to what they uncovered. Knowing that Gateway Pundit has followed Kevin Jennings since his appointment, as we have on The B-Cast”
“GLSEN’s stated mission http://www.glsen.org/cgi-bin/iowa/all/about/history/index.html?state=about&type=about is to empower gay youth in the schools and to stop harassment by other students. It encourages the formation of Gay Student Alliances and condemns the use of hateful words. GLSEN also strives to influence the educational curriculum to include materials which the group believes will increase tolerance of gay students and decrease bullying. To that end, GLSEN maintains a recommended reading list of books http://www.glsen.org/cgi-bin/iowa/all/booklink/index.html?state=tools&type=tools that it claims “furthers our mission to ensure safe schools for all students.” In other words, these are the books that GLSEN’s directors think all kids should be reading: gay kids should read them to raise their self-esteem, and straight kids should read them in order to become more aware and tolerant and stop bullying gay kids. Through GLSEN’s online ordering system, called “GLSEN BookLink,” http://www.glsen.org/cgi-bin/iowa/all/booklink/index.html?state=tools&type=educator featured prominently on their Web site, teachers can buy the books to use as required classroom assignments, or students can buy them to read on their own…”
“What we discovered shocked us. We were flabbergasted. Rendered speechless.”
“We were unprepared for what we encountered. Book after book after book contained stories and anecdotes that weren’t merely X-rated and pornographic, but which featured explicit descriptions of sex acts between pre-schoolers; stories that seemed to promote and recommend child-adult sexual relationships; stories of public masturbation, anal sex in restrooms, affairs between students and teachers, five-year-olds playing sex games, semen flying through the air. One memoir even praised becoming a prostitute as a way to increase one’s self-esteem. Above all, the books seemed to have less to do with promoting tolerance than with an unabashed attempt to indoctrinate students into a hyper-sexualized worldview.”
“We knew that unless we carefully documented what we were reading, the public would have a hard time accepting it. Mere descriptions on our part could not convey the emotional gut reaction one gets when seeing what Kevin Jennings wants kids to read as school assignments. So we began scanning pages from each of the books, and then made exact transcriptions of the relevant passages on each page.”
This is what happens when Americans fail to pay attention to what their representatives are doing in Congress. As long as the Democrats have any say in our government we will all suffer from the adage, You get what you deserve. We can all thank our leftist controlled news media for failing to report about it.My name is Nelson Abdullah and I am Oldironsides.
