Shares concerns about family conference in Ireland

To the editor:

There is a spiritual battle going on in the Catholic Church, in Dublin, Ireland, where Father James Martin will be welcoming LGBT Catholics under a conference titled “The World Meetings of Families.”

On one side of the great battle are those who accept God’s created order. On the other side are those who oppose this order and want it changed.

According to Father Martin, the church’s teaching on homosexuality is all wrong. He wants the Catholic catechism changed.

To accommodate Father Martin, not only the catechism, but the Bible would have to be changed to remove its condemnation of homosexuality. God destroyed Sodom for this very reason.

The apostasy that will start at the top, as the Third Secret warned, is happening now! We must oppose this with all our strength. “Not to oppose is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it,” so says Pope Felix III, who reigned in the 5th century.

Just recently, Ireland changed its constitution in order to pave the way to legalize abortion. Now, there is to be a scandalous conference where homosexuality will be promoted under a guise of a family conference.

To oppose this, read Revelation 22’s conclusion: “I John solemnly warn everyone who hears the prophetic words of this book: if anyone adds anything to them, God will add to his punishment the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes away anything from the prophetic words of this book, God will take away from him his share of the fruit of the tree of life, and his share of the Holy City, which is described in this book.”

Come, Lord Jesus! May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with us all.
