As we ponder the horrible, hate-filled attack against the Orlando night club and the murder of homosexual persons, let us examine ALL of the sins which cry to heaven for vengeance:
"The catechetical tradition also recalls that there are 'sins that cry to heaven': the blood of Abel, the sin of the Sodomites, the cry of the people oppressed in Egypt, the cry of the foreigner, the widow, and the orphan, injustice to the wage earner." Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1867.
The first, the sin of Abel, is murder. The second, the sin of the sodomites, refers to homosexual ACTS.
Homosexual ACTS represent an evil which is on the same level as homicide. They are both abominations before God.
Violence against homosexual persons is incompatible with the Gospel. So are homosexual ACTS.
Saint Peter Damian, Doctor of the Church, from his classic work The Book of Gomorrah:
"the vice of sodomy "surpasses the enormity of all others," because:
"Without fail, it brings death to the body and destruction to the soul. It pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the mind, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, and gives entrance to the devil, the stimulator of lust. It leads to error, totally removes truth from the deluded mind ... It opens up hell and closes the gates of paradise
... It is this vice that violates temperance, slays modesty, strangles chastity, and slaughters virginity ... It defiles all things, sullies all things, pollutes all things ...
"This vice excludes a man from the assembled choir of the Church ... it separates the soul from God to associate it with demons. This utterly diseased queen of Sodom renders him who obeys the laws of her tyranny infamous to men and odious to God She strips her knights of the armor of virtue, exposing them to be pierced by the spears of every vice ... She humiliates her slave in the church and condemns him in court; she defiles him in secret and dishonors him in public; she gnaws at his conscience like a worm and consumes his flesh like fire. ... this unfortunate man (he) is deprived of all moral sense, his memory fails, and the mind's vision is darkened. Unmindful of God, he also forgets his own identity. This disease erodes the foundation of faith, saps the vitality of hope, dissolves the bond of love. It makes way with justice, demolishes fortitude, removes temperance, and blunts the edge of prudence.
"Shall I say more?"
Pretty clear teaching. But don't expect the liberal, anti-God mainstream media to touch on this. They're too busy promoting and defending the anti-God LGBT agenda while straining, along with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, to avoid pointing any fingers at radical Islam.
Certain chastisements are PERMITTED by God when a people turn their backs on Him.
