His Eminence, John Cardinal Tong Hon, the Archbishop of Hong Kong, has issued a powerful statement against the evil of homosexuality and sexual libertinism. This is the same Cardinal-Archbishop who was not invited to the Synod (thus depriving the great and noble Chinese nation of any representation at the Synod of the Family), whilst the filthy, dirty, pedophile protector, Daneels was personally invited by the Bishop of Rome. A full report on the evil, apostate Belgian Cardinal may be read at Vox Cantoris.
As we read the Chinese Cardinal's Letter and denouncement of sexual immorality and the abomination of sodomy, we begin to understand why the holy Prelate was persona non grata at the Synod. Indeed, back in September, the great bishop denounced homosexuality and sexual sin; obviously he had a track record and was unacceptable to the heretics who controlled the Synod.
While the apostate Cardinals, bishops and priests from western Europe and the Americas pander to the terrible sin of Sodom and sexual immorality (such as winking at adultery and trying to declassify it as a sin); even calling for a "change" in language with reference to the intrinsically disordered nature of homosexual acts - God has raised up in the Far East a true Prince of the Church, a true Apostle of Jesus Christ to denounce these wicked sins.
The Cardinal - for his efforts to defend true morality - has been persecuted by homosexualists and the usual suspects from the various degenerate "democratic" neo-fascist States of western Europe and North America for his November 5th Letter denouncing the sexual degeneracy. Needless to say, the neo-modernist and pro-adulterist and homosexualist Holy See Press Office, is silent. I myself learned of Cardinal Tong's Letter from the Polish Episcopate's Conference, where they praise the Cardinal for opposing "homopropaganda".
The war of words reached a crescendo yesterday afternoon when some 10,000 people from the Pink Alliance and other similar associations led the city’s Gay Pride parade, calling on the Government of Hong Kong to ban all " discrimination "against people based on their sexual orientation, including gay marriage.
The consuls of France, Britain, Germany, United States, Sweden, Ireland, Canada, Switzerland, Australia, Finland, as well as representatives of the European Union and the British Council attended Hong Kong’s Seventh Gay Pride.
The Cardinal's Letter
To: Parish Priests, Assistant Parish Priests, Pastoral Workers and Members of Parish Councils / Parish Pastoral Councils:
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
In recent years, social trends and political movements, such as extreme libertarian attitudes, individualism, the “Sex Liberation Movement” and the “Gay Movement”, under the guise of equality and the fight against discrimination, have all along been advocating the enactment of a Sexual Orientation Discrimination Ordinance in Hong Kong and the recognition of same-sex marriages. Thereby, the core values and key concepts of marriage and of the family are continually being challenged and misinterpreted, so that the very foundation of society is being undermined. In view of the current critical situation, I urge our parishes to play an active role as the “salt in earth” and the “light of the world”, by promptly making an urgent announcement on my behalf, as follows:
The announcement comes in two formats. The first is for Parish Newsletters/Bulletins, Notice Board, social media, etc.
Since Vatican II, the Church has persistently given importance to the divine institutions of marriage and the family as the foundation of society. My Pastoral Letter, entitled Human Ecology and The Family: Strengthen Marriage; not Redefine It!, made public at the end of September of this year, as well as the 14th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops just concluded, have both reconfirmed the constant Catholic teaching on marriage and the family.
Regrettably, in recent years social trends and political movements, such as extreme libertarian attitudes, individualism, the “Sex Liberation Movement” and the “Gay Movement”, under the guise of equality and the fight against discrimination, have all along been advocating the enactment of a Sexual Orientation Discrimination Ordinance and the recognition of same-sex marriages. Thereby, the core values and key concepts of marriage and of the family are continually being challenged and misinterpreted, so that the very foundation of society is being undermined.
One instance of the foregoing trend is the USA Supreme Court ruling last June, which imposed the recognition of same-sex marriages on all the 50 States of that country, including those States, which through a democratic voting system have previously voted against the recognition of same-sex marriages.
Another instance is a so-called “Workshop on Love-making Techniques” recently held by a so-called Christian students’ organization at one of our local universities, whose programme included a demonstration by sex workers of the use of sex toys and erotic massage.
It is evident, therefore, that the virtual propagation of sexual liberalization under the umbrella of academic freedom, as a misguided culture, is no longer implicitly, but publicly and, so to say, pompously, intruding on our daily life and directly affecting our next generation.
This social trend could even go one step further by enacting the Sexual Orientation Discrimination Ordinance (SODO) and recognizing same-sex marriages, and/or by similar legislation or judicial precedents. This would force our society into undergoing a change that would turn it upside-down.
Since we are in such a critical situation, I urge our faithful to play an active role as the “salt of the earth” and the “light of the world”, by taking into due consideration, in the upcoming 2015 District Council Ordinary Election and other Elections in the future, the stance of each candidate and that of the political party he / she might belong to with regard to the core values of marriage and the family, and the proposal to enact SODO.
The second, shorter format is for Sunday Masses.
Cardinal John Tong is urging our faithful, in the upcoming 2015 District Board Ordinary Election and other Elections in the future, to take into due consideration the stance of each candidate and that of the political party he/she might belong to with regard to the core values of marriage and the family, and the proposal to enact a Sexual Orientation Discrimination Ordination (SODO). By doing so, the faithful will be helping to uphold marriage and the family as the foundation of society.
+John Card. TONG
