    Most of what the video discusses regarding the Vatican's preparatory document sounded supportable to me as a Catholic, although the term "delicate" was ambiguous. However, when it stated that "Catholics should respect homosexual couples", I knew that the smoke of Satan was on the rise.

    I pray that this tragic element in the document will ultimately be rejected, and that the Holy Spirit will inspire the Bishops to recognize the evil behind the normalization of homosexualism in any form. Already, the spirit of homosexualism is punishing Christians for refusing to support sexual wickedness in their businesses, and, worse, children -- who have a human right to be raised by their natural mother and father, or if adopted, to be raised by a mother and father, who alone can model authentic human family life for them -- are being discriminated against and psycho-sexually abused by these false and unnatural relationships. Pedophilia will soon arrive unless homosexualism is rejected altogether and re-listed as a psychological disorder.

    Trying to reach a truce with this evil will avail nothing, but will likely lead many into complicity with grave sin and find many Catholics eventually marching in homosexualist parades themselves -- a situation which is already too common. For example, here in Toronto this very weekend, the Ontario Catholic Teachers' union will be officially marching in the homosexualist World Pride Parade! It's amazing how quickly we forget the words of Jesus and the Apostles warning us against sexual sin. St. Paul's description of homosexualism in Romans chapter 1 is particularly relevant. Has his teaching reached its "expiry date" in our brave new world of "diversity and inclusivity"?

    The Church has been attacked by the spirit of wickedness in the past, and today is no different. Let's pray and trust that the Lord will guide us to recognize the enemy within, and let's stay close to Jesus no matter what. Pray for the Holy Father, Pope Francis, around whom these forces must be swirling with particular ferocity.

    In the love and truth of Jesus Christ and the Holy Family,
