BCP: Promoting sodomy in
post-conciliar Catechism 

is a moral and spiritual suicide


Many LGBTQ promoters refer to the Catechism, namely Articles 2358-59. There are really misleading formulations in these Articles of the Catechism that open the door to the spread of an amoral infection. They must be deleted from the Catechism, because they promote false teaching – a false gospel, which, according to the Word of God, carries the punishment of an anathema, that is, expulsion from Christ’s Church and a curse (Gal 1:8-9).

The spiritual roots of the Catechism

In the introduction to the Catechism, John Paul II writes: “In 1986, I entrusted a commission of twelve Cardinals and Bishops, chaired by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, with the task of preparing a draft of the catechism requested by the Synod Fathers. An editorial committee of seven diocesan Bishops, experts in theology and catechesis, assisted the commission in its work.”

In the same year, 1986, John Paul II summoned representatives of pagan religions to Assisi and prayed with them. It was a gesture of apostasy that caused a shift in public opinion towards viewing demon worship and Christ’s death on the cross as equal paths to salvation. This gesture de facto eliminated the mission. In addition, John Paul II ensured that the new Code no longer included the penalty of excommunication for membership in a Masonic organization. By doing so, he officially received the Freemasons into the Church. Today, they have already taken over key positions in the entire Catholic Church.

Regarding the Catechism and its promotion of sodomy, the then Cardinal Ratzinger could hardly prevent the use of the ambiguous wording in Articles 2358-9; nevertheless, the blame for this promotion of sodomy is now thrown on him.

Scripture is dismissive of sodomy in many places and warns against it. And so is Church Tradition. Saint John Chrysostom said: “The worst of all passions is lust between men… So I say to you that these are even worse than murderers, and that it would be better to die than to live in such dishonour. A murderer only separates the soul from the body, whereas these destroy the soul inside the body… There is nothing, absolutely nothing more mad or damaging than this perversity.” (In Epistulam ad Romanos)

Pope St Pius V established the following: “If a cleric (deacon, priest or bishop) has committed the crime of sodomy, he shall be degraded from office and handed over to secular justice.” This crime was punished under secular law as murder. And the Pope added: “Otherwise this evil will not be eradicated.”

Quote from CCC 2358: “The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible.”

The use of the term deep-seated to describe homosexual tendencies is manipulative and meant to prevent any objections to homosexuality. However, neither the Word of God nor the tradition of the Church views homosexuality this way. What is described as deep-seated homosexual tendencies in the Catechism is, in fact, as stated in the Scripture, a punishment for the sin of idolatry of the ancestors, namely for the sins against the First Commandment of the Decalogue. The root of it is pointed out in the Letter to Romans: “…because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator. Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions … men doing shameful things with men…” (Rom 1:27)

Post-conciliar Church exchanged the truth about God for a lie and encourages the worship of pagan demons, which is why homosexuality is spreading across her. If a man exchanges the worship of a true God for the worship of pagan idols, in fact demons, the punishment reaches as far as on the third and fourth generation. That is stated in the First Commandment of the Decalogue. Nevertheless, the II Vatican Council in its Nostra Aetate declaration officially laid out the prohibited veneration of the pagan cults and their demons, thereby providing an environment for a mass propagation of homosexuality.

What are the forms of the current idol worship among Christians? They are about Zen and yoga meditations, about openness and admiration of Hinduism, Buddhism, decadent music rooted in the satanic voodoo, about various forms of divination, e.g. horoscopes, various forms of magic, spiritism, occult medicine, homoeopathy, acupuncture. At the time of the Council or after it, the Church did not provide any clear comment with regard to sins against the First Commandment, namely paganism and occultism. On the contrary, by means of the Nostra Aetate declaration it promoted the veneration of pagan cults (religions), and de facto their demons, at all schools of theology. Being silent about the invasion of paganism and occultism was and still is a practically non-written law of Catholicism.

Hiding behind the homosexual inclinations called deep-seated is actually a negative spiritual force, which affects psyche. The Bible and the church tradition calls this power a demon, or an unclean spirit. Jesus did not tolerate unclean spirits, but casted them out and set the people free, contrary to the present-day Church, which does the opposite.

The most important commandment in the Decalogue is the first one. It expresses a personal relationship to God. A believer draws strength from this relationship and from a true worship in the fight against the infection of evil, which is on his inside and in the world and behind the cunning attacks of demonic powers.

When a person leaves the vertical, the relationship to God, and starts to worship the creation, be it the visible or the invisible one – thus fallen angels – he has no more strength to follow moral principles of God’s law in the remaining commandments either.

The homosexuality is intertwined with the entire system of evil. Becoming a slave or a medium of unclean demons is not an innocent matter. This curse sweeps an individual and the whole society on the path of their self-genocide.

Quote from CCC 2358: “Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard (i.e. towards sodomites) should be avoided.”

This means that the Catechism forbids calling a sin a sin and thus cancels God’s law. It no longer has at heart the salvation of souls and deliverance of enslaved people, but serves the mass spread of this spiritual and amoral infection. The spirit behind homosexuality then not only discriminates, but cruelly subjugates the entire society, including the Church. Anyone who does not comply is branded as a homophobe, and is threatened with harsh re-education and three years in prison under the current legislation.

Quote from CCC 2358: “They (homosexuals) must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity.”

We ask: What for should we have respect? For the soul of man? But then we must oppose sodomy according to God’s law. Or is respect for the body emphasized? Then we must oppose sodomy as well, because sodomy degrades the human body. It follows that the concept of respect here is only manipulative. Respecting sodomy is contrary to God’s law as well as human decency and natural morality – ethics.

If a sick person is infected with, for example, typhus or the plague, he will not demand respect from a healthy person coupled with false compassion and sensitivity, which would only result in the spread of the infection. The Catechism is deliberately silent about the need for true repentance and about the true nature of the problem of homosexuality, nor does it emphasize the need to avoid the near occasion of sin, to fight with thoughts, feelings or images.

Through compassion, one always becomes open to others. But there is an unclean spirit behind homosexuality, and the first step to accepting it is compassion, sensitivity, and then a thought – a homosexual feeling and desire that culminates in an act. In this way, a person fully opens up to sodomy, breaks the barrier and becomes a homosexual. And this is what the Catholic Catechism encourages! This is a gross crime against God’s law and against a faithful Catholic who respects the authority of the Church, and hence the Catholic Catechism.

The Bible unequivocally condemns sodomy and calls it not only a sin but also an abomination and depravity, warning that the punishment for it is temporal (2Pe 2:6) and eternal fire (Jude 1:7). Unrepentant sodomites are also named among those who will not have a share in God’s kingdom (1Cor 6:9). The Law of Moses established the death penalty for those who committed a homosexual act (Lev 20:13).

A sodomite should take the following steps for his liberation: accept the truth about sodomy and the effective means of combating sin. At the same time, he must show a true respect for God, and therefore it is necessary for him to break with the roots of sodomy, namely ungodliness and idolatry (Rom 1:21-25) associated with various forms of the occult.

Quote from CCC 2359: “By the virtues of self-mastery…, at times by the support of disinterested friendship…, they (sodomites) should gradually approach Christian perfection.”

A person who is in bondage to disordered sexuality does not take seriously the theories about self-mastery or Christian perfection. And to demand of a Catholic that he should foster a disinterested friendship with this sodomite is like casting a lamb to a wolf.

A truly disinterested friendship is possible only in the form of a spiritual conversation in the presence of at least two witnesses. This conversation should clearly instruct the person concerned on the teaching of Holy Scripture and Tradition. The person in question will surely appeal to the Catechism. And here we see the monstrous crime of the Catechism, which does not allow the defence of God’s truth and deliverance. A CCC supporter will argue that you are no wiser than the Holy Father John Paul II, who approved this Catechism. Articles 2358 and 2359 must therefore be deleted; otherwise the Catechism is under God’s anathema.

“But fornication and all uncleanness…, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints.” (Eph 5:3)

God’s Word nowhere prescribes an attitude of respect, compassion, sensitivity or non-discrimination towards fornication, adultery or homosexuality, i.e. towards immorality, as the Catechism does.

“For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But everything exposed to the light is revealed clearly for what it is.” (Eph 5:12-13)

God’s Word does not foster disinterested friendship with people who reject repentance and the truth. This concerns LGBTQ people. The manipulation of compassion and sensitivity opens the door to the mass spread of sodomy and at the same time prevents liberation.

Scripture, on the other hand, encourages us to call an evil an evil and an abomination an abomination and thus be protected from false compassion, false sensitivity and false respect. “Everything exposed to the light is revealed clearly for what it is.” (Eph 5:13) It is a serious sin, addiction and slavery that holds in bondage all those who have opened themselves to this unclean spirit.

In a single word respect, namely respect for paganism, the Second Vatican Council abolished true respect for God and de facto removed the First Commandment. Subsequently, in a single word respect, namely respect for sodomy, the Catechism destroys divine and moral law. Faith within the Church has been replaced by unbelief disguised with Modernism and its historical-critical method. The Nostra Aetate declaration has made people receptive to pagan idolatry. This has paved the way for the mass spread of sodomy. The spirit of absurd respect for sodomy has also been manifested in the post-conciliar Catechism. Respect for God and His commandments has been pushed aside, and it is Sodom and Gomorrah all over again. Pseudo Pope Francis brings it to completion with the Synod on Synodality. He is digging a grave for the Catholic Church. This is the outcome of the Second Vatican Council and the post-conciliar Catechism of John Paul II.

Articles 2358-59 have brought God’s curse on this Catechism for preaching another – false gospel (see Gal 1:8-9). This antigospel infects even sincere Catholics and places them under a curse. Therefore, these Articles promoting sodomy must be removed from the Catechism!
