FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL
USA ADVANCING ON GAY AGENDA
November 14, 2015
Imagine that. The US State Department has a Special Envoy for the Human Rights of LBGTI Persons. As we have been saying, the US government under Obama has made it a primary goal of its foreign policy and diplomacy to push LGBT on the rest of the world. But here is the worrying part. They are now meeting with the Vatican.
But of course Berry will be rebuffed, right? Umm, ahh, ehem. Recently, Pope Francis appointed Fr Timothy Radcliffe, OP, as a consultor to the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace (which office Berry met with). Fr Radcliffe is radically pro-gay, pro-gay marriage, pro-communion for the divorced and remarried, and probably pro-women’s ordination. And know what? Fr Radcliffe is the first speaker at the International Eucharistic Congress that will take place in January 2016 in Cebu.
“Berry denied that financial pressure was being put on African nations to legalize same-sex marriage …” Sir, your nose is growing longer. This statement is a blatant lie. Ask the African bishops and governments. Just this July, the Kenyan President rebuked Obama for the latter’s gay rights message when visiting Africa. The US is withholding aid, even aid in fighting Boko Haram, unless African nations toe the line and accept the gender and gay rights ideologies.
US envoy for gay, transgender issues meets with Vatican officials
November 13, 2015
Randy Berry, the US State Department’s Special Envoy for the Human Rights of LGBTI Persons, met with officials of the Vatican’s Secretariat of State and Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace on November 10.
The Tablet reported that Berry and the Vatican officials discussed “persecution of gay and transgendered people across the world.”
Berry denied that financial pressure was being put on African nations to legalize same-sex marriage but said that in Uganda’s case, “my government did suspend certain types of aid” in order to “make sure that US taxpayer money was not used to fund legal structures that would prosecute people based on their identity.”
Asked to comment on Cardinal Robert Sarah’s criticism of gender ideology, Berry said:
I’m not sure what gender ideology is supposed to mean. What we are talking about are issues of identity. I don’t think that respecting the integrity and dignity of a person based on their identity is necessarily a threat to anyone. I think the failure to do that is a threat to us all.
The discussion is whether or not we have advanced as a people, whether we can respect the integrity and dignity of all individuals absent these aspects of identity.
