[Courageous Priest] In my recent Pastoral Letter, I wrote that the Alberta Government Gender Guidelines issued on January 13 show no evidence of consultation with, or sensitivity to, the Catholic community. They breathe pure secularism. This approach and directive smack of the madness of relativism and the forceful imposition of a particular narrow-minded anti-Catholic ideology.
If you are reading this piece in the hopes of discovering an apology and/or a retraction, you might as well stop reading right now. That’s simply not going to happen.
I have received considerable support for what I said and the way in which I said it. Nevertheless, there were a few “nay-sayers” some have called for my resignation, others have resorted to unpublishable name calling, and of course, there were several references to the famous catch-all these days, “Who are you to judge?” The later suggesting that I was espousing a teaching contrary to the openness of Pope Francis.

For Aberrosexuals: "You are our savior"
Catholic teaching on homosexuality "insane"
"Padre Gofo" and Bishop Raul Vera
The closed and the open doors of Pope Francis
Here's something from Vatican Downslider:
“Everyone is aware of how sensitive the Church is to ethical issues but perhaps it is not clear to everyone that the Church does not lay claim to a privileged voice in this field…,” Pope Francis said in a meeting with the Italian Committee for Bioethics today, highlighting the risk of utility and profit being the only reference points for developments in science and biological and medical technologies. He urged this advisory body of the Italian government, headed by Francesco Paolo Casavola, a Catholic, to look further into environmental degradation, “disability and the marginalisation of vulnerable individuals”. He asked them in other words to tackle the challenge of countering today’s “throwaway culture” which “takes on many forms, including treating human embryos as disposable material, as well as sick and elderly people approaching the end”. The Pope also asked them to harmonise standards and norms in the biological and medical fields.Just monstrous:
Bioethics, established by the President of the Council for Ministers in Italy 25 years ago,” Francis said. “Everyone is aware of how sensitive the Church is to ethical issues but perhaps it is not clear to everyone that the Church does not lay claim to a privileged voice in this field; in fact it is a source of great satisfaction for the Church when civic responsibility at different levels is able to reflect, discern and act according to a free and open way of thinking and inspired by integral human and social values. This mature civic responsibility is a sign that the seed of the Gospel – which has been revealed and entrusted to the Church – has produced fruits, successfully fostering the search for truth and good in complex human and ethical questions”

|Archbishop Paglia in Portugal: Pope Francis Will Publish the Post-Synodal|
Letter in March
Edit: Rorate is saying that it will be Tucho Fernandez who writes the letter.
(Rome) The post-synodal letter to the Synod of Bishops on the Family will be published in March. The chairman of the Pontifical Council for the Family, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, told the Portuguese news agency Agencia Ecclesia.
The Agency wrote:
"The information was reported by Agencia Ecclesia, quoting the President of the Pontifical Family Council, Don Vincenzo Paglia, during the training days scheduled for priests which taking place until Thursday in the southern ecclesiastical province in Albufeira in the Algarve."
Initially it was said that the post-synodal letter would appear in February. The letter will be eagerly awaited. Since Pope Francis has creaated considerable tension in the Church when announcing the double-Synod of Bishops on the Family in 2013. A fundamental dispute about the indissolubility of marriage and the Catholic moral teaching has broken out. It is about the admission of remarried divorcees to the sacraments, and thus to the de facto recognition of a second marriage, and the acceptance of homosexuality. Both points are being promoted by the liberal group in the Church. The spokesman for the divorced and remarried is Cardinal Walter Kasper. One of the spokesmen for the recognition of homosexuality is curia Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia.
The Synod of Bishops ended in October 2015 with a laborious compromise which just avoided a break in the Church. The Kasperians were supported by Pope Francis suffered a defeat, but they want to still want to twist by way of "interpretation" and thanks to support from the Pope, into a victory.
The draft "puts the natural law in question"
The Vatican expert Edward Pentin of the National Catholic Register reported today that the letter will be unveiled to the public on March 19, on the feast of St. Joseph and the third anniversary of the inauguration of Pope Francis.
According Pentin's "well informed sources" Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez, the ghostwriter of Pope Francis and rector of the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina, should be the principal author of the letter. Fernandez is one of the closest confidants of Pope Francis. He even appointed him as Archbishop of Buenos Aires Rector despite great resistance by the competent Roman Congregation for Education. When Pope Francis was elected, he let those feel his wrath, who had at the time opposed the appointment of Fernandez, while he raised Fernandez to Titular Archbishop and personally appointed him as a votinng member of the Synod of Bishops.
A moral theologian, says Pentin, has seen the draft and is "deeply disturbed" about it. The draft "puts the natural law in question".
