CofEIII

Francis and “sister bishops”

Today is the BIG DAY.

For emphasis, let me say that again: TODAY IS THE BIG DAY.

To drive the point home:

TODAY IS THE BIG DAY.

The reason that today is that BIG DAY is that TODAY is the Day were the Synod Fathers will begin „dialoguing” on what this blog has determined to be the TRUE AGENDA of this entire bi-synodal exercise.

Just to belabor the point, because it needs to be belaboured, the Deus Ex Machina blog, using a Peirce/Ochkam pragmatic methodology (see here) has established, as early as 18 December 2014, in a post titled The Synod of The Three Paragraphs (see here) that the TRUE AGENDA of the entire bi-synodol process is nothing more than to PURGE the “INTRINSICALLY DISORDERED” descriptor of aberrant sexual behavior from the Catholic moral teaching and ecclesiastical law. By purging “INTRINSIC DISORDERED” , the heretical bishops are opening the door to introduce GENDER IDEOLOGY into the Catholic Catechism and the Code of Canon Law.

And just to remind everyone why aberrant sexual behavior is INTRISICALLY DISORDERED, I will allow Cardinal Kasper to explain: (see here)

“For me, this inclination is a question mark: it does not reflect the original design of God and yet it is a reality, because you are born gay,” he says in the book.

Yes, it does “not reflect the original design of God” is an OBJECTIVELY TRUE statement. Actually, it does not reflect THE DESIGN OF GOD, period.

But if you are the sort who wants to give Cardinal Kasper the benefit of the doubt, and as Catholics we should, you could say that maybe “this inclination is a question mark”.

But if you go down this road of ambiguity, you quickly hit a logical and scientific brick wall. If one needs to place aberrant sexual behavior in the “question mark” category, than one needs to explain the following:

The reason that sexual practices such as homosexuality, i.e. “intrinsically disordered” are “unquestionably (…) dangerous and unhealthy” is that “human physiology makes it clear that the body was not designed to accommodate this activity”. Furthermore,” the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an “exit-only” passage. With repeated trauma, friction and stretching, the sphincter loses its tone and its ability to maintain a tight seal. Consequently, anal intercourse leads to leakage of fecal material that can easily become chronic”. “The potential for injury is exacerbated by the fact that the intestine has only a single layer of cells separating it from highly vascular tissue, that is, blood.” “Furthermore, ejaculate has components that are immunosuppressive. In the course of ordinary reproductive physiology, this allows the sperm to evade the immune defenses of the female. Rectal insemination of rabbits has shown that sperm impaired the immune defenses of the recipient. Semen may have a similar impact on humans. The end result is that the fragility of the anus and rectum, along with the immunosuppressive effect of ejaculate, make anal-genital intercourse a most efficient manner of transmitting HIV and other infections.” (see here)

And as we know all too well, from reading this blog if nothing else, that when on veers off the road of logic and science, one finds himself squarely in the IDEOLOGY patch.

And as your humble blogger has already explained ad nauseam, IDEOLOGY by definition is: a body of doctrine, myth, belief, etc., that guides an individual, social movement, institution, class, or large group, a system that derives ideas exclusively from sensation (Think Vital Imminence – see here)) and base on theorizing of a visionary or impractical nature.

And as we already know, the problem with “theorizing of a visionary or impractical nature” is that this “theorizing” has consequences. As we have explained in numerous posts, the consequences of allowing oneself “to derives ideas exclusively from sensation” with respect to aberrant sexual behaviour is the following:

Once again (see here): This study compared prevalence rates of most common sexually transmitted diseases (STD) in heterosexual and homosexual men who made respectively 12,201 and 5324 visits to an STD clinic over 18 months. Overall, homosexual men were significantly (p < 0.001) more likely than heterosexual men to have gonorrhea (30.31% vs. 19.83%), early syphilis (1.08% vs. 0.34%) and anal warts (2.90% vs. 0.26%) but less likely to have nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) (14.63% vs. 36.40%, p < 0.001), herpes genitalis (0.93% vs. 3.65%, p < 0.001), pediculosis pubis (4.30% vs. 5.35%, p < 0.005), scabies (0.42% vs. 0.76%, p < 0.02), and genital warts (1.68% vs. 6.69%, p < 0.001). In most cases the differences in rates remained significant (p < 0.05) when corrected for age and race. It is speculated that higher rates of gonorrhea and syphilis result from a larger mean number of sexual contacts, more potential sites of infection, and more hidden and asymptomatic disease, while the lower rates of the other STD result from a lesser susceptibility of anal mucosa to the causative agent(s) of NGU, herpes genitalis, and venereal warts or from a lack of pubic apposition (pediculosis pubis).
So let’s sum up the above information.

So from the information above, ipso facto Cardinal Kasper admits that aberrant sexual behavior is INTRINSICALLY DISORDERED (“it does not reflect the original design of God”).

Any doubt that this INTRISICALLY DISORDERED behavior “is a question mark” is refuted by OBJECTIVE SCIENTIFIC (CLINICAL) EVIDENCE. The scientific evidence clearly demonstrates that the human anatomy (regardless whether one believes in creation or evolution) has not been created (has not evolved) in order to perform acts that are aberrant by their very nature. I.e. INTRISICALLY DISORDERED.

Furthermore, there is a causal relationship between engaging in aberrant sexual behavior and health problems that arise from engaging in aberrant sexual behavior. This causal relationship confirms Cardinal Kasper’s “original” contention that aberrant sexual behavior “does not reflect the(…) design of God”, original or otherwise.

Which led us to observe that IF Cardinal Kasper and the Synod Bishops were to adopt a position regarding aberrant sexual behavior as anything other than INTRINSICALLY DISORDERED, it would by default mean that the Synod of Bishops is adopting an IDEOLOGICAL position rather than a DOCTRINAL (SCIENTIFIC) position. Please remember, DOCTRINE must reflect OBJECTIVE REALITY, i.e. “original design of God”.

Therefore, IF the Synod of Bishops were to adopt an IDEOLOGICAL position, THEN the Catholic Church would CEASE TO BE a RELIGIOUS organization and de facto become an organization promoting an IDEOLOGY.

In other words, the Catholic Church would joint all the other “religious” organizations who have transformed themselves into organizations promoting a particular IDEOLOGY.

This would have significant carry on effects on the nature of the Catholic Church as an institution. The most profound impact would be derived from changing the philosophical foundation of the Catholic Church. This change would entail one where the Catholic Church stops teaching DOCTRINE which is TRUE ALWAYS AND EVERYWHERE, i.e. ahistorical and immutable.

Or to put it in other words, CATHOLIC DOCTRINE would cease being “SCIENTIFIC”. IF the above were to happen, THAN the Catholic Church would by default became “UN-SCIENTIFIC”, i.e. ILLOGICAL, IRRATIONAL and IMPULSIVE.

IF the above were to come to pass, THEN the Catholic Church would most likely share the same experience as other “religious” organizations whose underlying philosophy is “un-scientific”, i.e. illogical, irrational and impulsive.

One such organization is the “Church” of England. And without going too far into detail, here is how one member of this “religious” organization explains the consequences that the Catholic Church could expect to face in its future: (see here)

Whatever happened to ‘Be ye not conformed to this world…’ as St. Paul urges. But of course the Apostle would be deemed homophobic by today’s theological and ecclesiastical standards, deemed also hate-filled and more.

According to Mullen’s First Law of Ecclesiastical Polity, which states that every succeeding Archbishop of Canterbury is bound to be worse than his predecessor, Justin “Oil” Welby has cancelled the 2018 Lambeth Conference of all the bishops from the Anglican Church worldwide.

Why?

Because he can’t face the prospect of all those wonderful, faithful, orthodox, devout and true bishops from Africa coming to London and telling him that he’s got it all wrong about homosexuality and women in the episcopate.”
So what will happen?

VOL believes that the Church of England is following the same disastrous trajectory as The Episcopal Church, which having brokered women and sodomy into the Church in all its forms, is now, as a result, shrinking. It will vanish within a generation.

Hmmm. Vanish within a generation.

That’s the answer!

So let us fill in the blank:

IF NOT “INTRINSICALLY DISORDERED”, THEN VANISH WITHIN A GENERATION.

For an OBJECTIVE CONFIRMATION see here.

On an aside…

But there could be one minor advantage for the Catholic Church becoming “Episcopal”. It would bring its theological sensibilities into line with some of its “young and up and coming FrancisBishops”. (see here and here and here)

Who allowed these people to make their First Holy Communion? (see here)
