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. If he's so opposed to transgender people and gays,

    1) why is he wearing one of their outfits
    2) why didn't he marry a woman

  2. They never mention the gay clergy in the Vatican, well known by the pope, or the pedophile rapist priest. Typical phony logic by one of the most corrupt institutions in history.

  3. I just really don't understand how "religious" leaders create fear, panic, and spread hate. I'm not religious, but I have read the bible. I'm pretty sure it specifies that "THOU SHALT NOT KILL" and "ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE YOU"…. Did these people overlook the concept?! These religious "leaders" need to be spreading love and peace throughout humanity!

  4. OHHH STFU and Go away with your Imaginary Fairy in the clouds……see this is WHY religions Like 3rd world countries – those people have barely anything – so religion gives them FALSE hope and since they Lack real critical thinking skills and Hope – they fall for it -!!!!

  5. 71 year old unmarried virgin puts himself forward as a spokesman for what is a good family and what is not. Not based on facts, but what a 2000 year old collection of books says is right and wrong.

    Man who was educated in a seminary from 12 years old in a former French colony complains about the influence of ‘ideological colonialism’ . One that seeks to promote individual freedoms over those of the collective, that are on balance less damaging than the alternative.

    The hypocrisy is outstanding.

  6. Just another privileged male flailing about helplessly as the hegemony that protects him evaporates before his very eyes.
