How the Media Works

Heads They Win, Tails he Loses
Example 1:

Cleric gives interview to media. In long interview he is asked about the government asking churches to protect against secularisation.

Cleric answers honestly that this is chutzpah, that the govt is destroying Faith, especially via "gay marriage"

The media blows response out of all proportion.

The media, secularists and homosexual lobby say church is fixated on sexuality.


Example 2:

Cleric gives long speech/homily. In it he deals with Our Lord, poverty, loving ones neighbour, loss, drink and drugs, abuse, unemployment, divorce, prayer, adoration, Confession. He also mentions "gay marriage."

The media reports that priest has spoken publicly against gay marriage.

The media, secularists and homosexual lobby say church is fixated on sexuality.


Example 3:

Govt passes law giving homosexual couples rights. When it does it promises this will not lead to "gay marriage".

Just a few years later government pushes for gay marriage despite no public clamour, no need in law, huge petition against, and deep unease of many.

The government pushes and pushes and pushes for "gay marriage" even justifying it by appealing to Christian ideals and a pro-family spin.

Christians and pro-family activists quite naturally speak against the government who initiated this.

The media, secularists and homosexual lobby say church is fixated on sexuality (not the government!).

Anyone spot the pattern here?

The enemies of sanity are fixated with sex. Their society is preoccupied by sex. Homosexuality is promoted at every turn, as is adultery, infidelity, hedonism etc.

Yet whenever the church speaks against something that is pushed on prime time TV on virtually every channel, virtually every night - the media, secularists and homosexual lobby say church is fixated on sexuality!

Even though it is not true (the church spends more money educating and caring for the poor, for example), one may as well complain that the fire service is fixated with warning people about the effects of fires.

I don't expect the media, the politicians, the secularists, the atheists or the homosexual lobby to change tack. They are what they are. they lie as often as they speak.

Catholics need to 'shake the dust from their sandals' and move on from the baiters, the trolls and the ne'erdowells and keep promoting the Truth.

As Our Lord said "the Truth will set you free."

No Warnings?

In the meantime I'll leave you with this thought. medical evidence is that smoking kills people. Not all smokers. Not outright. But a significant number die early. So the government puts warnings on cigarettes  bans smoking in public buildings, taxes cigarettes, hides them in shops and so on. Schoolchildren are warned against smoking and shown the negative effects of it.

Medical evidence also proves that homosexuality kills people. Not all homosexuals. Not outright. But a significant number die early. Yet government (national and local) promotes homosexuality. Schools also promote it. Laws are passed to help its growth and existing laws against public/gross indecency are ignored by police forces to enable individuals to engage in common homosexual practices.

Why is one action which will kill a person early frowned on and banned; yet another action which will kill a person early is actively promoted? This is a blatant attack on active homosexuals themselves whose lives are at risk. Don't they deserve the help to quit their actions, like smokers?

Doesn't seem a caring attitude. Who are the haters? Those who wish individuals to live a full life? Or those happy to help them to a possible early death?

Catholics (and Anglicans etc.) do not hate homosexuals. We love them. We want them to be free from a deathstyle, from a world filled with drugs, abuse and disease.

We are always taught to hate the sin and love the sinner. The difference is when a cleric speaks against theft, gluttony, greed, divorce, bigamy, adultery, false witness, etc. the media ignore his speech because sin is de rigeur these days. But when he speaks against homosexuality, the media, the politicians, the secularists, the atheists and the homosexual lobby go into overdrive.

They are fixated with sex, not the cleric who dares to speak out once in a while. And whether it is active homosexuals, children abused by a step parent, children traumatised by divorce, or a generation of inner city gang members with no decent male role models - it is a rapidly disintegrating society that is picking up the pieces of their fixation.

  1. The media (read TV) is a great tool. It is now in the hands of Satan.

  2. "The enemies of sanity are fixated with sex. Their society is preoccupied by sex. Homosexuality is promoted at every turn, as is adultery, infidelity, hedonism etc."

    The above is absolutely true. Unfettered sexuality in all its forms is probably the predominate driving force behind everything secular society has been trying to force on all of us. I wrote this very thing a while back and thought I would like share a blog postnif I may. I apologize if it seems as self-promotion but it is not. I just want others to realize how the Catholic Church defends the true gift of sexuality while the secular sees this defense as an unhealthy fixation on sex.

  3. Fr Bauer - my local PP says the same. It is such a shame as it could be a tool for great good.

    OC - feel free. Plug away! It's an old Marxist trick, they hit back in such a way as to embarrass opponents into silence. It's like when they say if you oppose the militant-homo agenda you're a secret queer. By that argument we're all secret abortionists!
