It is a tenet of the Catholic faith that homosexuality is instrinsically disordered.
It is also a tenet of the Catholic faith that same-sex “marriage” is a mirage.
Alas, at Immaculata High School in Somerville, New Jersey, you can be Catholic and believe these truths, but you can’t post them on Facebook. Or mention them in a classroom.
Patricia Jannuzzi, the Immaculata High School teacher who was forced to remove her Facebook page by the school after making anti-gay posts, has been put on administrative leave.
“This episode has reflected not only on this teacher but, by extension, on Immaculata High School,” the letter states. “We regret deeply any hurt this has caused to any individuals and the negative light in which it has cast our school.”
Jannuzzi, a theology teacher with Immaculata for 33 years, was forced to de-activate her Facebook page after an online petition — which now has more than 900 signatures — called attention to her posts.
Patricia Jannuzzi was sacked for affirming Catholic doctrine. Her catholic (yes, small c) employer caved to the homofascists. Note their characterization of her statements — “anti-gay” — instead of what they really are, Catholic teaching.
Why? Because noted theologian Susan Sarandon objected! Oh, and some homosexual bozo who had a bit part in a Real Housewives episode got his knickers in a twist too. The part where his tweet libels Rick Santorum? Yeah, that’s tolerance! dontcha know.
Because only Catholics are haters. Homosexuals are the epitome of reason and understanding. Their precious feelings must be assuaged, always.
Or they’ll call you names.
While I am not Catholic, I am sufficiently acquainted with their doctrines on marriage and the family to conclude that Ms. Januzzi said nothing in her rant with which the Pope would disagree. And having spent the past several months researching radical feminism, I can say with absolute certainty that the “agenda” is exactly what Ms. Januzzi says it is. But the 21st-Century Thought Police can’t let the truth be spoken.
Let me quote more of Ms. Januzzi’s post. She was reacting emotionally to a story (“Crass: Gay Activist Tweets THIS To Ben Carson Following CNN Interview”) that she linked on her Facebook page, and her point was not very clearly made. She said gay activists, after using the “born that way” argument to gain status under the 14th Amendment “equal protection” clause, will then “argue everyone should be able to choose” homosexuality. Anyone familiar with feminist theory knows that radical lesbians have never accepted the “born that way” argument, instead advocating lesbianism as a “challenge to male supremacy and its basic institution of heterosexuality,” to quote Professor Sheila Jeffreys. This feminist perspective was celebrated in a 1973 song by Alix Dobkin, “Every Woman Can Be a Lesbian.”
The radical “choice” view of sexuality advocated by lesbian feminists is seldom heard from gay males, who usually describe their homosexual desires as an uncontrollable urge. However, one finds across the spectrum of the LGBT rainbow a unanimous consensus on what we might call the Compulsory Approval Doctrine:
No one can ever be permitted to express a personal aversion or moral objection to homosexual behavior.
Disapproval is synonymous with “hate,” according to gay activists, and the cultural consequence of the Compulsory Approval Doctrine is to stigmatize heterosexuality as an expression of prejudice. Many gay people have convinced themselves that the “straight” person’s rejection of homosexual behavior is implicit proof ofhomophobia — an irrational fear — so that all heterosexuals are basically viewed as ignorant bigots afflicted with neurotic sexual repression. And if you dare cite religious injunctions against homosexuality, you thereby prove that you are certainly a hater. Quod erat demonstrandum.
Because, apparently, disapproval of homosexual urges is tantamount to imposing a Death Sentence. I’m told that kids who believe they are gay are prone to commit suicide if they aren’t immediately celebrated with parades, balloons, confetti, and abject deference to the Inherent Moral Authority of their newfound sexual deviancy. Their feelings trump everything. Including reason.
Look: I’m old enough to remember when a boy could be suspended from public school if his hair was long enough to touch his shirt collar in back. I remember when a girl could get kicked off the cheerleading squad if she engaged in PDA (public display of affection) by holding hands with her boyfriend. There was a time — and not really that long ago, either — when young people could not demand approval from their elders, and in fact teenagers were constantly subjected to lectures of adult disapproval for their adolescent wildness. Yet we did not commit suicide, nor did we organize petitions to get our teachers fired because they disapproved of us, inter alia, smoking dope and listening to Led Zeppelin.
Our parents and teachers told us we were hellbound heathens and, once we grew up and looked back on our misspent youth, most of us agreed they were right. God forbid any of my kids should ever go wild like I went wild in the ’70s. America was still a free country back then, and adults weren’t expected to tiptoe around lest they bruise the fragile self-esteem of a Special Snowflake. Back then, totalitarianism was a threat posed by the Soviet Union. Now the totalitarians are here among us, organizing to suppress dissent, punishing expression of opinions contrary to those of the progressive elite.
The totalitarian Gay Mafia has punished Patricia Jannuzzi.
But, I suspect they aren’t done with her yet.
It’s not sufficient for her to lose her current job. She has to become unemployable. Her livelihood must be defenestrated. It’s the Godfather paradigm: make an example of one, and the rest will fall in line.
I ask you. What teacher at Immaculata will dare defend Catholic doctrine tomorrow?
The comments at the original news article sadden me. The hatred and vitriol directed at Patricia Jannuzzi, and at Catholics in general, is staggering.
But it’s par for the course in Homosexualville, where the least tolerant and most judgmental people you’ll ever meet conspire to stamp out any vestiges of disagreement with their chosen lifestyle. They constantly seek affirmation of their debauchery, even as their consciences nag them from behind the brick wall they’ve erected to compartmentalize their sins. Because even the tiniest spark of righteousness shakes the very foundation of their licentiousness. Such is the fragility of their zeitgeist, censure is anathema.
Shame on Immaculata High School for abandoning Catholic doctrine, and for throwing one of their own into the lion’s den.
There are Christians in Iraq and Africa who refuse to renounce their faith even as they face certain death. Yet the administration at Immaculata cowers in fear at the mere thought of “anti-gay” publicity, as if their eternal souls would be tarnished by the approbrium of fornicating sodomites.
Shame on them, I say again. Now is not the time to go weak.
Homosexuality is wrong. It is contrary to nature, and to nature’s God.
Pray for the presecutors of Patricia Jannuzzi. Pray that their hearts may be opened, and that their sins might be forgiven. Pray for strength to resist the hordes of secularization. Pray that Almighty God has mercy on us all.
