Last Sunday, while many of us watched a very professional and exciting football game, we and our families were subjected to a halftime show by Lady Gaga. I thought that the costumes, images, noise, smoke and light were a commentary on our Culture of Death with its anti-life, truth, goodness and beauty.
Most offensive where the lyrics to her song, “Born This Way”, in which she falsely sang, “No matter gay, straight, or bi, Lesbian, transgendered life, I’m on the right track baby, I was born to survive.”
The truth is that no one is born, as Lady Gaga sang, into a “gay, or bi, lesbian, transgendered life.” Persons with these disordered sexual attractions are not born that way. Although our Culture of Death says that our subjective feelings are what define our sexuality, the truth of our sexuality is objectively revealed to us by God, through our bodies.
The idea that these disordered sexual attractions are innate and immutable is an article of faith, not science. You can’t prove immutability, there is no scientific observation, experimentation and conclusions, just polls and even most polls show that these disordered attractions can be changed and are curable. You only need one witness to disprove this unscientific theory. There are no such genes for these sexual attractions. None of these disorders are fixed and determined. They are all subject to free will. An adulterer might just as well argue that there is an “adulterer’s gene”, a drug addict an “addicts gene” and so forth. None of them can truthfully say, “I was born this way.”
Many activists agree that the “born this way” argument for their homosexuality and lesbianism has no basis in science.

God does not create people with these disordered attractions. He creates them as man and woman and their disordered attractions come through their environment, nurture, not nature, and their own free will that is subject to satanic deception and temptation.
Perhaps those with disordered sexual attractions did not freely choose their disorder. Perhaps their life’s wounds led them to this. However, God knows and he looks to their hearts and wants to save them and to lead them in the right direction to receive his merciful love.
Those with disordered sexual attractions can, with the grace of God, choose and live their true sexuality free of the temptations of disordered sexual attractions. God does not propose the impossible. He gives us the grace and makes possible what may seem impossible. He created us in love to know him and to love him and to serve them in this world, and to be eternally happy with him in heaven. He wants us to choose his plan.
God’s plan for human sexuality is that a man and woman will come together as one flesh in an indissoluble monogamous marriage – unbreakable and for life. His plan is that the sexual acts that he designed for our bodies are exclusively only for married men and women uniting them in love with an openness to new life and their family.
Special concern and pastoral attention should be directed toward those who have suffer from these disordered attractions, lest they be led to believe that the living out of them in sexual activity is a morally acceptable option. It is not.
“The Lord Jesus promised, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free” (Jn. 8:32). Scripture bids us speak the truth in love (cf. Eph. 4:15). The God who is at once truth and love calls the Church to minister to every man, woman and child with the pastoral solicitude of our compassionate Lord.”
Read the letter to the Catholic bishops here.
Our Lady of America said, “I am the Immaculate One, Patroness of your land. Be my faithful children as I have been your faithful Mother.” She asked us to be pure, especially the young. We should pray for her intercession to protect and bring to conversion, purity and chastity those who practice disordered sexual acts.
Our Lady of America asked for America to lead the world in purity. If it failed in this mission, as it certainly has, she gave us a severe warning in April of 1957.
Our Lady said, “Unless my children reform their lives, they will suffer great persecution. If man himself will not take upon himself the penance necessary to atone for his sins and those of others, God in His justice will have to send upon him the punishment necessary to atone for his transgressions.”
