Senior Vatican Cardinal warns ‘demonic’ transgender rights are causing the ‘death of God’

Cardinal Robert Sarah, who is influential in the Vatican and holds the title Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, warns that trans people are “demonic” and gay unions are a danger to society.

Cardinal Robert Sarah, who is influential in the Vatican and holds the title Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, made the comments in his address to the annual DC National Catholic Prayer Breakfast.

The event was attended by lawmakers from across Congress, including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

In his keynote speech, the Cardinal said: “The death of God results in the burial of good, beauty, love and truth. Good becomes evil, beauty is ugly, love becomes the satisfaction of sexual primal instincts, and truths are all relative.

“So all manner of immorality is not only accepted and tolerated today in advanced societies, but even promoted as a social good. The result is hostility to Christians, and, increasingly, religious persecution.

“Nowhere is this clearer than in the threat that societies are visiting on the family through a demonic “gender ideology,” a deadly impulse that is being experienced in a world increasingly cut off from God through ideological colonialism.”

He also rallied against same-sex unions and rainbow families.

The Cardinal said: “The rupture of the foundational relationships of someone’s life – through separation, divorce or distorted impositions of the family, such as cohabitation and same sex unions – is a deep wound that closes the heart to self-giving love unto death, and even leads to cynicism and despair.

“These situations cause damage to little children through inflicting upon them a deep existential doubt about love.

“They are a scandal – a stumbling block – that prevents the most vulnerable from believing in such love, and a crushing burden that can prevent them from opening to the healing power of the Gospel.”

He added: “Sadly, the advent of artificial reproductive technologies, surrogacy, so-called homosexual ‘marriage’, and other evils of gender ideology, will inflict even more wounds in the midst of the generations we live with.

“This is why it is so important to fight to protect the family, the first cell of the life of the Church and every society.

“This is not about abstract ideas. It is not an ideological war between competing ideas. This is about defending ourselves, children and future generations from a demonic ideology that says children do not need mothers and fathers.

“It denies human nature and wants to cut off entire generations from God.”

  1. It’s amazing how catholic priests talk about what they themselves are doing and attribute what they do to anyone and everyone not themselves. They are ones lying and claiming their bible condemns being gay or transgender. Yet, the terms for homosexuality only came into existence in 1869. So, how can words that had not yet even been spoken until then get into text written almost 2000 years before?

  2. He forgets that any religion that gails to adapt to changing knowledge and understandings will die. And it is correct the his god IS dying!!

  3. I don’t understand how transgender people affect any of these people. They are all so involved in what’s in a transpersons pant that, oh wait these are the vaticans brigade of pedophiles we are talking about. They are only concerned about that and the younger the better( I’m a victim myself). God said love all Mankind not just who you want to pick and chose. Do unto others and all that. If you want to be a treated as decent human being then you must treat others as a decent human being.

  4. It amazes me how these people who are so "religious" can be so wrong about everything they say and do. First of all Jesus never said anything that they contribute to him. He was a Jew and raised as a Jew, he had a Bar Mitzvah at the age of 13 and was working on teaching those who had strayed from the Torah that they were wrong in some of the things they were doing. He never said to hurt anyone, he taught Love, yes Love does not criticize anyone. Love thy neighbor as thy self. Now we see that this "Church", which he had no intention of starting is putting words in his mouth. Why do you think that there are volumes of books that the "Church" will not let anyone see, because they will show that their teachings are false.

  5. I thought the church said God was forever and endless. Well if transgenders can cause the death of God, the forever and endless is not true. Which is it church? Or do you just say any old thing to fit your 2000 year old policy of always having individuals and groups to oppress?

  6. Sodom and Gomorrah was a historical reality and there’s no minced words of Jesus when he said our last days will be like it was in the days of Noah
