For anyone paying attention to the Pope’s first ever visit to the United States, it’s painfully obvious that a concerted effort was in play to hijack the entire thing in order to push a homosexual, anti-Catholic agenda. While Pope Francis or the Vatican likely had very little, if anything, to do with the orchestrated attempts to inject sinister ideologies into the Pope’s visit, there can be no doubt that in each case we’re about to illustrate, someone knew exactly what they were doing.
The Pope’s first stop was in Washington, DC, where he was greeted by Barack Obama and a contingent of homosexual activists. Michael Hichborn, president of the Lepanto Institute, was interviewed by FOX News about individuals listed on the greeting party, and he said, “President Obama is trying to force the pope into a situation where it seems as if the Church is giving license to homosexuality and socialism. You don’t treat the head of the Roman Catholic Church as a political toy in order to push your own agenda.”
Individuals invited to the White House to greet Pope Francis included Aaron Ledesma. Ledesma, who runs a blog called “The Gay Catholic,” told the Huffington Post on September 14, “I’m gay. I’m Catholic. I’m not chaste.”
Another of Obama’s welcoming entourage was former Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson. Robinson revealed his homosexuality in 1985, and in 2008 entered into a same-sex “marriage” saying, “I always wanted to be a June bride.”
Following Pope Francis’ visit to Washington, DC, he traveled to New York. We’ll discuss the Pope’s remarks to the United Nations in another post. What we wish to note in this article is that someone had invited the provocative singer and dancer known as Shakira to sing John Lennon’s “Imagine,” which starts off with the lyrics, “Imagine there’s no heaven.” The rest of the song echoes a Marxian dream by “imagining” a perfect world where there is “no religion,” there are “no countries,” there are “no possessions,” and a great big “brotherhood of man.”
That night, Pope Francis celebrated Mass in Madison Square Garden, where the very first lector was Mo Rocca. Rocca is an openly homosexual reporter who starred in the pornographic LGBT play, “Broadway Bares.” In 2011, Rocca openly professed his homosexuality in a podcast interview with “The Six Pack,” a show about “news views and dudes.” In 2013, Rocca participated in the 24th annual GLAAD (Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Media Awards.
The point is, whoever selected Rocca to be a lector for the first reading of the Papal Mass in New York knew who he was, knew it would be a homosexuality-promoting stunt, and did it in the face of the Holy Father. It should be noted that in 2008, Rocca was an MC at Pope Benedict XVI’s Youth and Seminarian rally in Yonkers, New York, where he introduced musical artists and other groups before Pope Benedict’s arrival. In the following video, Rocca reads the first reading of the Mass.
Then came Philadelphia.
In August, the Lepanto Institute contacted the Archdiocese of Philadelphia with concerns regarding the executive leadership cabinet of the World Meeting of Families. One of the individuals we expressed concern about was Mayor Michael Nutter, who was an avid promoter of homosexuality, even to the point of conducting a same-sex “marriage” himself. The response from the Archdiocese was to criticize the motives of the Lepanto Institute and tell Catholics that our reports “are not to be taken seriously.” One week before the Word Meeting of Families, Mayor Nutter announced his intention to use his honorary platform at the World Meeting of Families to promote homosexuality, and in a speech at the forum, and during a live broadcast by EWTN, that is precisely what Nutter did.
Unfortunately, the only existing online video of Nutter’s speech is from EWTN, and has a German translator speaking over the original audio, so what Nutter says is difficult to hear. However, we have transcribed part of Nutter’s speech, provided below:
Nutter, in his speech, encouraged the homosexual community to continue in their fight. By speaking to a Catholic audience, Nutter, in effect, called upon Catholics to abandon their faith and join in the homosexual revolution. He said:
“In America, everyone has rights. Our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender neighbors continue the fight for human rights and equality. When speaking to the bishops of the United States of America, Pope Francis said, ‘May no member of Christ’s Body and the American people feel excluded from the Pope’s embrace.’ He had previously said, ‘If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?’ [unintelligible] Who are any of us to judge the lives of others? The scripture tells us ‘judge not, lest you be judged.’ We are one society, one people, one family. [unintelligible] Remember the words of Frederick Douglas, ‘Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will.’ Keep fighting for your rights. It’s a collective fight, but there are others fighting with you.”
These events did not happen in a vacuum. Obama’s invitation of homosexual activists to the White House to greet Pope Frances was a political stunt intended to use the Pope’s visit to promote homosexuality. Shakira’s performance at the United Nations was a stunt intended to promote the UN’s Marxist agenda. Whoever invited Mo Rocca to deliver the first reading at the Papal Mass knew what Mo Rocca was about. It is no accident that the homosexual community was all aflutter over his participation. The Archdiocese knew what Nutter was about, Nutter announced his intention to use his platform to push a homosexual agenda, and he followed through. That train wreck could be seen coming 100 miles away, and those who could have done something to prevent it, stood silently by and let it happen. That was no accident, either.
All of these things don’t happen in a vacuum. Someone invited them, someone knew who they were, and someone knew what they were going to do. For all of these things to happen in concert with each other cannot be a coincidence.
