“Gay Marriage”

“Let’s not be naïve, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.”

Resisting “Gay Marriage”

“Let us look towards Saint Joseph, to Mary, the Child, and let us ask with fervor that they will defend the Argentine family in this moment. Let us recall what God himself told his people in a time of great anguish: ‘this war is not yours, but God’s’. That they may succour, defend, and accompany us in this war of God.”

Blasphemous Art

“Jesus warned us that these things would take place, and with much tenderness he told us not to be afraid, that we are his small flock, that we should persevere in the struggle for the faith and in charity, placing our hope in him and praying with the true confidence of children of a Father who loves us …. I invite you to pray and fast on that day [of the exhibition], as a day of penance during which we pray to the Lord, as a Christian community, for forgiveness of our sins and of those of our city. May our Lady of Lujan be with us in her affection,”

Hypocrisy & Scandal 

“Hypocritical men and women don’t know who they are, they don’t know their own feelings … beware of the leaven of hypocrites … The Father knows all of you, your brothers welcome you in community, therefore, go forward and, if you make a mistake, if you fall, you must get up. This is the truth, not hypocrisy … If you hear someone say something you don’t like, say so, but don’t be scandalised by life; the weapon of the hypocrite is to scandalise … Tell the truth, be transparent, walk on the wide road, not on the path of hypocrisy … On this road you will meet the cross, pain and problems. But your heart will be joyful. On the path of hypocrisy, on the contrary, you don’t know what your heart feels … [Mary] is the first of us who went the good way; she said yes when it was yes, and no when it was no.”

Abortion & Eugenics

“we aren’t in agreement with the death penalty … [but] in Argentina we have the death penalty.  A child conceived by the rape of a mentally ill or retarded woman can be condemned to death.”

Denying Communion to Pro-Death Politicians

“we should commit ourselves to ‘eucharistic coherence’, that is, we should be conscious that people cannot receive holy communion and at the same time act or speak against the commandments, in particular when abortion, euthanasia, and other serious crimes against life and family are facilitated.  This responsibility applies particularly to legislators, governors, and health professionals.”

Child Exploitation

“the most mentioned word in the Aparecida Document [above] is ‘life’, because the Church is very conscious of the fact that the cheapest thing in Latin America, the thing with the lowest price, is life … Children are mistreated, and are not educated or fed. Many are made into prostitutes and exploited. And this happens here in Buenos Aires, in the great city of the south. Child prostitution is offered in some five star hotels: it is included in the entertainment menu, under the heading ‘Other’.”

Euthanasia

“In Argentina there is clandestine euthanasia.  Social services pay up to a certain point; if you pass it, ‘die, you are very old’.  Today, elderly people are discarded when, in reality, they are the seat of wisdom of the society … the right to life means allowing people to live and not killing, allowing them to grow, to eat, to be educated, to be healed, and to be permitted to die with dignity.”
