2008 - A Big Year For Sodomy
And those in positions of authority in The Church lead the way

Here's some from each article. First, from LifeSiteNews.com comes a disturbing little story about how a spokesman for the USCCB glorifies homosexuality; (Emphasis mine. And the "USCCB Boycotter" badge was stolen from Joe of St. Thérèse)
Movie Reviewer for Catholic Bishops' Conference Praises Homosexualist Film - Again
Despite movie's scenes of males kissing each other, nudity, and promotion of gay "lifestyle", movie not rated "Morally Offensive"

By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman

WASHINGTON, D.C., December 2, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Harry Forbes, the head movie and television reviewer for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), has issued a review praising the movie "Milk." (See text of the review at
http://www.usccb.org/movies/m/milk.shtml)

The movie, which exalts the first openly homosexual man elected to public office in U.S. history, Harvey Milk, contains scenes of "male kissing and nongraphic encounters, rear male nudity, murder, suicide, and some rough language, crude expressions and profanity" by Forbes' own admission.

Despite such material, and despite the movie's blatant glorification of the homosexual rights agenda, it is not rated "Morally Offensive" (O), but only receives a rating of "L", for "Limited Adult Audience." Furthermore, in his review Forbes in no way objects to or cautions viewers about the content of the film, instead offering nothing but words of praise.

Forbes, who heads the USCCB's Office for Film and Broadcasting, calls the movie "a solid biographical drama about San Francisco supervisor and gay rights activist Harvey Milk."

He also speaks approvingly of the movie's strong emphasis on the Catholic faith of Milk's assassin, Dan White. "Penn is especially fine, and Brolin is scarily intense as the Catholic White. (We're shown a lengthy baptism of White's baby, with Milk ironically the only invited outsider.)," writes Forbes.

Forbes has written other reviews praising films that promote and glorify homosexual behavior and attack the Catholic faith, including "Brokeback Mountain," which is about a sodomite relationship between two cowboys, and "The Golden Compass," which is atheistic and vilifies Christianity.
And people wonder why I don't trust the USCCB.

St. Michael’s Catholic Hospital in Toronto Flying Gay Pride Flag in Lobby
Hospital has history of supporting the gay pride agenda

By John Jalsevac

December 9, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, a Catholic hospital, is flying the gay pride flag in its lobby, LifeSiteNews.com has discovered.

The Toronto Catholic hospital has a history of supporting the gay pride agenda. In 1999 LifeSiteNews.com revealed that the hospital was listed as a “bronze” level sponsor of Gay Pride Week in Toronto, having donated a significant sum of money to the event. They did not sponsor the week again. The week’s activities included a homosexual men’s picnic at Toronto Island’s nude beach, and a “dyke striptease unlike any you've seen before,” amongst other similar events,

Recently, in comments made to the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal (OHRT), prominent homosexualist activist Rev. Brent Hawkes lauded St. Michael’s Hospital as an example of
a Catholic institution that had turned its back on Catholic moral teaching in the name of “a greater public good.”

Hawkes described how he approached St. Michael's Catholic Hospital in Toronto with concerns about their treatment of homosexuals. The Catholic hospital, said Hawkes, responded in a way that he did not expect. They immediately "educated their staff on gay and lesbian issues, they started to treat gay and lesbian couples as full couples before the law required them." He added: "They put a rainbow flag into the foyer, they put signs up for Pride Day."

Suresh Dominic of Campaign Life Catholic responded to the recent revelation about the hospital, saying, “It is sad to see St. Michael's hospital promoting the homosexual agenda. In the past the same hospital has funded the 'Gay Pride' parade. A Catholic institution should know well that promoting such a destructive lifestyle is against Christian charity. The idea behind such a decision is gravely malformed.
(Could one also use the word perverted?)

Repeated attempts to contact representatives of St. Michael’s Hospital were not returned by press time.

This is indeed sad news. I am guessing that this hospital also follows the Canadian policy of abortion on demand right upto the 9th month. I do hope that none of the funding of this hospital comes from the archdiocese and the parishioners of Toronto and surrounding areas.
I do hope that our archbishop could and would intervene and remove the Catholic status of this hospital along with the stripping of the name of St Michael who is the archangel who defends us in the day of battle.

Can that Forbes guy get fired, or am I personally going to have to remove him...There's a reason why I stole the USCCB boycotter badge from another blog for crap like this, stop by and feel free to paste.

It's a good thing I don't actually read the viewers guides from the USCCB. (You know, I'm thinking of applying and taking the job myself)

In perpituity the USCCB never ceases to amaze and disappoint.

They are non-Catholic, immoral, and void of leadership principle. They loudly proclaim and stamp thier approval to the applause of one hand clappers everywhere in the end signifying nothing!

Really, this is just the typical case of the louses in the USCCB thinking with their little heads, which appears to be the only brains they have. I suppose we should remind those rear-end rangers that we will listen when they say something worth listening to. Until then, make sure none of your Catholic dollars go to support these, um, a$$es.

Oh, and my Bishop tells me that they certainly DON'T speak for him, Thank God in Heaven.

I think I know how you guys feel. This crap keeps going on and if the Vatican was going to do something about it they would have done it by now.

The USCCB's "Office for Film and Broadcasting" should be renamed the "Office of Missed Opportunity". My 15 year old son actually tried using their movie reviews to check out a couple of movies that he was interested in but thought they might not be appropriate. It is pretty sad when mom and dad have to redirect their son away from the advice the US bishops when it comes to guidance on the moral contents of what is coming out of Hollywood. You are better off going onto decentfilms.com to check out if a movie is offensive to your Catholic sensibilities.

Thanks for nothing USCCB.
