This is a book that needs to be in the hands of every bishop in the world, including the Pope, as well as in the hands of every religious editor and investigative journalist so they'll understand what the Church truly teaches and not buy the modernist/tolerant-speak and psycho-babble that has so insidiously undermined Holy Mother Church.
"The Catholic faithful, per Guimarães, have a right to expect 'that the ordination of active or inactive homosexuals should cease, and that a strong document would be issued from the Vatican forbidding it along with stern measures with teeth to assure compliance. What Catholics desire to see is an action taken soon to begin the healing process that will purify the body of the Catholic Church and rid it of this vice against nature.'"
Atila Sinke Guimarães' new book, Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia, is a must read for Catholics wanting to understand why Rome has essentially done nothing to remove the dissident rot that has spawned a sodomite subculture in the Church. Guimarães meticulously charts the reasons for the moral disintegration of the Church from within as a function of the increased influence of sodomite clergy since Vatican II. His conclusions come as no surprise to those who have taken the time to logically connect the dots as to why Rome is impotent to right the Barque of Peter by sadly coming to the realization that the pro-sodomite mentality in the Church goes right up to the highest levels of the Vatican.
Guimarães pulls no punches in demonstrating this fact with painfully precise documentation. The root cause is clearly shown to be the mindset since Vatican II that no longer condemns a sin that cries out to Heaven for vengeance but rather condemns those who remind the world of that fact, the latter being called charity in the modern Church that is unrecognizable as Catholic.
The comparisons between the traditional Church teaching on sins against nature vs. the post-conciliar attitude is striking as Guimarães uses Sacred Scripture and Tradition in the form of statements from the Popes, Councils, Saints, and Apologists combined with the tradition of civil legislation to show the moral chasm that has resulted when the language of “pseudo charity” replaces the language of “tough love” for salvation’s sake. The result being that the necessary feelings of revulsion toward those proudly trumpeting their sodomite tendencies are no longer there opening the door for a misplaced compassion that such individuals do not deserve. Guimarães illustrates this through a clear exposition of the differences between an ontological dignity to which all are entitled by virtue of being made in the image and likeness of God, and a moral dignity as a function of being endowed with an intellect and will whereby good can be accepted and evil rejected. Moral dignity does not exist for sodomites, a distinction that the post-conciliar Church never makes using language that would have us erroneously believe that there exists something called the homosexual person, a concept which turns Christian anthropology on its head making God, Who is Perfect Good, out to be a liar in creating man with a built-in one way ticket to hell in complete ignorance of the effect of the concupiscence due to Original Sin.
Guimarães clearly shows how words have consequences with a litany of saints to include St. John Chrysostom telling us that “A murderer only separates the soul from the body, whereas these (sodomites) destroy the soul inside the body” vs. the post-conciliar attitude of Cardinal Basil Hume who was quoted as saying “The particular orientation or inclination of the homosexual person is not a moral failing …. Being a homosexual person is, then, neither morally good nor morally bad; it is homosexual genital acts that are morally wrong.”
Guimarães rightfully points out “By reducing moral culpability only to acts, Cardinal Hume (and the entirety of the post-conciliar Church) appeared to legitimize sinful thoughts and words. However, such concessions incur culpability with regard to the vice of homosexuality like any other vice, as Catholic doctrine has ALWAYS taught.” The rest is history as Hume opened the door for the condemnation of homosexuality in the post-conciliar Church to be needlessly qualified, if at all, something that Saints Peter, Jude, Pius V, Basil of Cesarea, Augustine, Aquinas, John Chrysostom, Gregory the Great, Peter Damian, Albert the Great, Bonaventure, Catherine of Sienna, Bernardine of Sienna, Peter Canisius, and the councils of Ancyra, Toledo, Nablus, and Third Lateran did not suffer.
Would that we would have a Pope Saint Siricius (384-399) whose norms for admission into the priestly state specifically prohibited those “who were formerly vessels of vice” as not being able to “receive the instruments to administer the Sacraments.” Note the accent on “formerly” with the clear realization of the higher probability of problems admitting such individuals. Today, with the inordinately high level of sodomites in the priesthood, per Guimarães' detailed worldwide statistics, “formerly” never enters into the question. Popes Saint Pius V, Saint Pius X, and Benedict XV echoed Pope Saint Siricius.
The Catholic faithful, per Guimarães, have a right to expect “that the ordination of active or inactive homosexuals should cease, and that a strong document would be issued from the Vatican forbidding it along with stern measures with teeth to assure compliance. What Catholics desire to see is an action taken soon to begin the healing process that will purify the body of the Catholic Church and rid it of this vice against nature.”
I highly recommend Atila Sinke Guimarães' book. It is valuable reference for Catholics caring enough to fight for the soul of their Church as a beacon of light for the world. Pray God that the aforementioned expectations of Guimarães are soon realized; else divine intervention is the only solution to the mess that we are in since God will not be mocked indefinitely. It is not an exaggeration to observe “Things have gotten that bad!
Editor's Note: The Daily Catholic heartily endorses this book. Were everyone to read Atila's findings and conclusions, the Church could be cleansed quite quickly. The source, as Gary points out above in his excellent concise review and as Atila documents throughout, is contained in one paragraph on page 293:
Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia.
"The root cause of this change is a titanic event, simple to indentify, although only a few have the courage to see it for what it is and point to it. It is Vatican Council II."
Few scholars have the thorough acumen to trace and document the why, what, when, where, how and who as Atila has done in his marvelous Eli, Eli, Lamma Sabacthani? collection which, book by book, exposes the the massive, murky mess that has been created as a result of the Vatican II agenda. This latest book is key to understanding the purpose and rationale of those who would twist the Sacred Deposit of the Faith to accommodate sin. Vatican II, Homosexuality & Pedophilia is quite possibly his most shocking book yet considering what is divulged and documented. Yet, it is most necessary to be exposed and eradicated for the welfare of Holy Mother Church. It is a must read in order to alert all to how deep the rot goes and why the scandal in America was really only the tip of the iceberg. We encourage you to order, read and share with others his book
