“There is no evidence that the Catholic Church will ever reverse its teachings on homosexual acts; to do so would necessitate a wholesale denial of natural law,” he said. “That’s an impossibility.”

Sciambra explained that telling people otherwise is manipulative and abusive: “To deliberately make someone (who identifies as LGBT) believe that if they just hang-in there with the Church everything will change, amounts to the worst sort of psychological abuse and manipulation.”

As to the premise people are “born gay,” Sciambra said, “Even the very gay-affirmative American Psychological Association cannot claim that anyone was ‘born gay,’ according to the APA: ‘There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay or lesbian orientation.'”

Church Militant reached out to the diocese of Trenton, where the Jersey Shore retreat will take place, and received the following response: “San Alfonso Retreat House is run by the Redemptorist order, independent of the diocese of Trenton. While located in the diocese, San Alfonso Retreat House has never asked the diocese to approve the programs, speakers or groups that they host in their facility.”

This Blogger says, the voice of reason: 

‘The Holy Father “stands on firmer ground” if he sticks to “preaching about ethics” and “would do well to use the world’s most prominent pulpit to exhort businesses to behave with a stronger sense of morality,” observes The Economist, warning against the pontiff “proposing half-baked policies that any thinking economist can quickly rubbish.”
The summit is being organized by the diocese of Assisi, the municipality of Assisi, the Economy of Communion and the Seraphic Institute — a rehabilitation institution for children and young adults with disabilities.”

Prelate calls notion of ‘Francis Magisterium’ preposterous

Asked what Catholics should do in a time of confusion, Burke urged the faithful “to fall back on the constant teaching of the Church, which is contained in the Catechism of the Catholic Church and in the official magisterial teaching of the Church.”

Denouncing as “preposterous” the idea of a “Francis Magisterium,” Burke lauded the heroic example of St. Athanasius, who “at the cost of great suffering” was sent into exile and was excommunicated by Pope Liberius “for the sake of truth,” but nevertheless “remained steadfast in fighting for the truth” against the Arian heresy, at a time when the majority of Catholic bishops had become Arians.

“That is precisely what needs to happen again today,” he insisted.
Earlier, Cdl. Robert Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, called abortion the “greatest tragedy of our time,” noting that the pro-life cause is “part of the final battle … between God and Satan.”

“The ‘infernal red-fire dragon with seven heads’ — a prototype of the Culture of Death denounced by St. John Paul II in his teaching — stands before the pregnant woman, ready to devour her child at birth,” he warned.

“This clandestine approach is exercised everywhere throughout the Church these days, despite promises for more transparency and so forth — promises that have turned out to be lies. The last term that could be applied to various dioceses and religious orders is transparency.
The lack of transparency is applied unilaterally, including finances — in some ways, most especially finances. For example, almost no diocese in the United States publishes its finances, meaning specifically what their gross receipts were and an easily understandable list of expenses.”
