Is Cardinal Maradiaga - and papal advisor - now a supporter of birth control? ~ Yes, according to the National Catholic Reporter

The neo-modernist National Catholic Reporter is carrying a story that claims Oscar Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga of Honduras is on record for supporting neo-Malthusian Jeffery Sachs (and militant birth control and abortion advocate) call for poor people to limit their children. Lifesitenews carries an excellent and detailed exposition on the evil man that Sachs is. One wonders why the Cardinal would wish to hobnob with such a figure. 

From the NCR: 

In a question-and-answer session, Sachs emphasized the need for families in poor countries to limit births, and that the church has long recognized the concept of responsible parenthood. On that point, Rodríguez said, “I totally agree with Dr. Sachs,” and in a statement greeted with applause, called for better sex education to help combat teen pregnancies in poor countriesWe have to face this clearly and fearlessly,” said the cardinal.

If this report is accurate, how can a man who supports the culture of death, remain as an advisor - on the "council of nine" - to the Pope? It seems that nearly on a daily basis, the situation in Vatican City gets worse. There seems to be no shortage of Judases in Rome.

Sex education doesn't equate to birth control necessarily so I think you're out of order and not giving the benefit of the doubt in charity.

"Benefit of the doubt in charity"? Perhaps you have not been following the writings and presentations of Cardinal R-M for years? Perhaps you are not aware he has long been one of the Pope's closest and most personal friends? Perhaps you did not read his revolutionary treatise on the New Evangelization? Perhaps you do not realize, nor apparently might the author, that Maradiaga was hand-chosen as a papal advisor because of his extreme views, not in spite of them? We may extend charity to R-M as a fellow Christian, as a fellow child of God. But as a Cardinal and as a official spokesman for the Church, he has long ago used up the generous slack cut to him. To say he is a dangerous apostate is not going too far.

El Señor Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga manifiesta estar de acuerdo con un ateo que esta a favor del control Natal. Pero el Señor Oscar Rodríguez Marandiaga no utilizo un enfoque cristiano sino que al igual que el ateo ve como enemigo que las mujeres queden embarazada a temprana edad en los países pobres, lo cual es contrario a la Escritura ya que Dios nos ordenó multiplicarnos. Es decir que el tampoco hubiera apoyado la encarnación de la Virgen María siendo ella apenas una adolescente. El real problema no es educacion sexual que ahora esta siendo utilizada por el lobby gay como un arma de control natal en paises pobres lo que debe haber dicho cualquiera que sea un buen católico es que se debe reforzar la educación cristiana para formar a los jovenes a que construyan hogares con fundamentos cristianos. Escuchar un argumento ateo en alguien que presume ser cardenal es una verdadera vergüenza y signo de la actual apostasía.

The so-called "sexual education" is now a global tool used by the gay lobby to impose gender ideology.

Indeed, sex education does not equate to birth control, but agreeing with Sachs and giving him a certain gravitas is wrong. It is only charitable to correct the Cardinal.

Also, I submit for meditation an excerpt from Divini Illius Magistri, Pope Pius XI's encyclical on Educating Christian Youth.

This would seem that the Good Cardinal seems to directly oppose Pius XI.

Who's right?

65. Another very grave danger is that naturalism which nowadays invades the field of education in that most delicate matter of purity of morals. Far too common is the error of those who with dangerous assurance and under an ugly term propagate a so-called sex-education, falsely imagining they can forearm youths against the dangers of sensuality by means purely natural, such as a foolhardy initiation and precautionary instruction for all indiscriminately, even in public; and, worse still, by exposing them at an early age to the occasions, in order to accustom them, so it is argued, and as it were to harden them against such dangers.

"Paragraph 58 of the final document of the Synod on the Family contradicts Familiaris Consortio. Nevertheless, it was voted by 94 percent of bishops. Paragraph 58 claims that the family can not be the only place for sex education. By contrast, Pope John Paul II says in Familiaris Consortio that sex education is the right and duty of the parents and can only take place under their control."
