Homosexualist pressure builds on English Bishops attending Synod of the Family

The homosexual juggernaut is increasing its pressure. Truly the wolves are active! Homosexualists are gathering in Rome to launch a new group: a so-called "Global Network of Rainbow Catholicism". The English arm of this group, LGBT Catholics Westminster Pastoral Council is calling for the Catechism to be changed and "disorder" etc. be removed from the Catholic Herald:

Gay Catholics have sent a briefing paper to the two English bishops attending the family synod next week, urging them to reject “harsh” language about homosexuality.

The LGBT Catholics Briefing Paper resulted from a reflection day, sponsored by the LGBT Catholics Westminster Pastoral Council, held in June 2013.

The briefing paper is addressed to Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, and Bishop Peter Doyle, Bishop of Northampton and chairman of the bishops’ conference Committee for Marriage and Family Life, who will be at the synod which opens on Sunday.


The push to remove catechetical language and replace it with de facto mush is not new. The English language spokesman for the Holy See, Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, in a Salt and Light broadcast, of January 19, 2015 happlily put it this way regarding the Instrumentum Laboris: 

"...new language that is respectful of people, and avoids expressions or terminology that are offensive or that ordinary people cannot grasp. For example the document does not speak of homosexuality as intrinsically disordered. Nor, does it use the term Natural Law, which for many people is not understandable. It doesn't categorize those who cohabit before marriage as living in sin. This provisional text, this mid-term report, looked for positive elements in the various and diversified situations in which couples live".
