Many people think that Roman Catholics (and maybe a smattering of evangelical denominations) are retrograde neanderthals when it comes to allowance for contraception. Well, let's face it. Our Lord entrusted to the One True Church His infallible teachings. One of those teachings is that sexual activity is to be conducted by one biologically-born man and one biologically-born woman united in faithful matrimony and open to the generation of children. Any deviance from that constitutes grave matter for mortal sin.
Until 1930, all protestant denominations adhered to that Christian teaching. But during that year, the Lambeth Conference (of the Anglican denomination) occurred. They passed a resolution allowing for limited usage of contraceptives. Thus the fissure opened, allowing floodgates of immorality and leading to the plagues of baby-murder, all manners of perversion and all their attendant evils.
Please refer to my post from yesterday. Today, Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi (who was on that plane) confirmed that yes indeed, the pope was saying that contraception usage could be allowed "in cases of emergency". Here is Lombardi's exact quotes via LifeSiteNews (again, Lombardi was there). As you read these quotes, recall that Casti Connubii calls contraception "intrinsically vicious". (Aside - I'd suggest reading this encyclical, along with Huamae Vitae and Evangelium Vitae, all available on the Vatican website)
"The contraceptive or condom, in particular cases of emergency or gravity, could be the object of discernment in a serious case of conscience. This is what the Pope said." And “the possibility of taking recourse to contraception or condoms in cases of emergency or special situations. He is not saying that this possibility is accepted without discernment, indeed, he said clearly that it can be considered in cases of special urgency."
The pope's spokesman made very plain that the pope's intentions were right in line with the 1930 Lambeth Conference. However, this time the demonic disorientation is not coming from a heretical sect but from a successor of Peter. Already I'm hearing of misguided people justifying contraceptive sex because "the pope says it's ok". Such scenarios will only multiply, owing to the horrid scandal that the pope is now posing for deluded people.
But let's examine another troubling aspect to this debacle. The pope uttered his dissidence from Church teaching when asked about pregnant women exposed to the zika virus. It is in that context that he said "avoiding pregnancy is not an absolute evil". So what would he propose to be a more overwhelming evil in that context, if not the birth of babies with microcephaly? So this "serious case of conscience" could be ordered to preventing the existence of sick babies. This is eugenics, ladies and gentlemen! I link now to a post in which I put the Maafa 21 video. Watch that and see how the eugenics movement has been spreading its vile poison with advocates such as Margaret Sanger. Do we now see that bile oozing from the Vatican? The short answer is "yes".
Not only must we pray, but we must call out error so that others aren't led astray.
