The New Babel and the New Pentecost

The building of the first Babel was an act of pride. (cf. Gen 11) Like Adam and Eve, the builders didn’t want to receive from God; they wanted to obtain things on their own. They sought to construct a tower “with its top in the heavens” and to make a name for themselves, lest they be “scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” They desired to raise themselves to God’s level – to be self-sufficient – and to establish unity on their own terms.

To frustrate their aims and punish their pride, God confused their language and scattered them. The lesson of Babel is clear: it is human pride that has produced confusion and division in the world.

We are witnessing the construction of a new Babel. Ours is a post-Christian society, an anti-culture that has rejected the Word of God. In our pride, we want on our own terms and by our own accomplishments what creatures can only receive from God. We have thrown off His reality – about gender, sex, life, etc. – and tried to... more

Breaking from Seductive Sentimentality

"There is no such thing as “transgender.” It is an engineered term designed to disguise the reality of psychological and sometimes physical mutilation. When public authorities promote such sexual perversion in schools, it is indeed child abuse. The uncritical acceptance of LGBTQ nomenclature helps advance a radical sexual agenda."

Should a Catholic participate in a gay pride parade?

 “Pride Parades” today encompass a much larger agenda than anti-discrimination. They’re largely funded by, supported by, attended by, the secular LGBT agenda. And while one sliver of what they’re standing for and pushing against in society is upholding the dignity of the person, which I would agree with, there’s a whole lot more that they’re pushing for that’s directly against my faith".

Courage

Persons with homosexual desires have always been with us; however, until recent times, there has been little, if any, formal outreach from the Church in the way of support groups or information for such persons. Most were left to work out their path on their own. As a result, they found themselves listening to and accepting the secular society’s perspective and opting to act on their same-sex desires.

His Eminence, the late Terence Cardinal Cooke of New York, was aware of, and troubled by this situation. He knew that the individual dealing with same-sex attractions truly needed to experience the freedom of interior chastity and in that freedom find the steps necessary to living a fully Christian life in communion with God and others. He was concerned that many would not find this path and would be constantly trying to get their needs met in ways that ultimately do not satisfy the desires of the heart.

New Heart Outreach- Tampa Bay

Vision

On September 4, 1996, Mark Culligan, Founder & CEO, caught a vision for a large, spiritual renewal center designed and equipped for the restoration of the sexually and relationally challenged. The center will include a worship space, residential recovery facilities, a total wellness center, a broadcast center and a fine arts facility center. The vision also included the Tampa Bay Alliance for Relational Health, a grand partnership and collaborative effort between businesses, schools, churches and other organizations devoted to bringing the church and the community together for the healing of hurting people. If you would like to know how you can partner with us in making this a reality then we welcome you to contact us and schedule an appointment. We would be pleased to meet with you and discuss how our combined efforts can produce something larger than we could otherwise accomplish on our own.

Between the (Gender) Lines: the Science of Transgender Identity

Sex determination – the way we are “coded” into a biological sex – is complicated in and of itself. There are far more options than just “male” or “female,” and countless instances of species that can actually transition from one sex to another within a single lifetime. With most mammals, however, the majority of individuals are cisgender male or female; transgender individuals are estimated to comprise about 0.3% of the adult U.S. population.

“Redefining” Marriage?

In the current debate over gay marriage, people sometimes ask:Who should define marriage? Democrats or Republicans in Congress? The Supreme Court? Should it be put to a referendum, allowing the majority to choose a definition? We can identify two kinds of “definitions” when it comes to marriage. The first touches on the essence, the objective reality, or the truth about marriage. The second involves a legal or political position, advanced through the media, judicial decisions, or other legislative means. While these secondary definitions of marriage can be of interest, their true level of importance is properly gauged only in reference to the first and objective definition.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health

A complex combination of factors can impact youth health outcomes. LGB youth are at greater risk for depression, suicide, substance use, and sexual behaviors that can place them at increased risk for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).3 Nearly one-third (29%) of LGB youth had attempted suicide at least once in the prior year compared to 6% of heterosexual youth.3

Same-Sex Parenting: The Child Maltreatment No One Mentions

Even if further research makes the harm of same-sex parenting indisputable—which, to this social scientist, is virtually so already—don’t expect mainstream social science to accept it. Ideology has long-since replaced true scholarship there—they are blind followers masquerading as independent thinkers at the cutting edge. Also, don’t expect the CPS to start thinking that the damage caused to children by same-sex parenting—and certainly not the whole notion of same-sex parenting itself—qualifies as child maltreatment.
