The final report itself is a typical academic word salad full of tired leftist clichés, circular reasoning, and politically correct language. Below are just a few of the more problematic excerpts from the report:
On LGBTQ Ideology
Sometimes, the anthropological categories we have developed are not sufficient to grasp the complexity of the elements emerging from experience or knowledge in the sciences and require refinement and further study. It is important to take the necessary time for this reflection and invest our best energies in it, without giving in to simplifying judgments that hurt people and the Body of the Church. (Passed 307 – 39)
Here’s some science for the 307 synod participants who approved this nonsense. The chromosomes in every cell of a male body are XY. The chromosomes in every cell of a female body are XX. There are only two sexes. Men can’t bear children. This is not an outdated view but rather an indisputable fact. And by the way, mere humans did not develop these anthropological categories – God did, and here’s some scripture to back it up. God created mankind in his image; in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27. If this simple truth “hurts” people, we must work in charity to educate those who have been utterly misled and fail to understand the complementarity of natural law and the truth of the scriptures, not humor them in their error.
On Women’s Participation
There is an urgent need to ensure that women can participate in decision-making processes and assume roles of responsibility in pastoral care and ministry. The Holy Father has significantly increased the number of women in positions of responsibility in the Roman Curia. The same should happen at other levels of Church life. Canon law should be adapted accordingly. (Passed by 319 – 27)
What exactly were the consecrated sisters, who ran schools and hospitals in the past, doing if not assuming “roles of responsibility in pastoral care and ministry?” Did these courageous women not engage in decision-making to build what was once the largest independent healthcare and educational system the world has ever known? Perhaps a better question for the synod would be: why aren’t young women attracted to this life of prayer and service anymore, and exactly what happened to Catholic hospitals and schools run by religious women who faithfully serve so many?
On Climate Change The biblical and theological foundations of integral ecology [to] be more explicitly and carefully integrated into the teaching, liturgy and practices of the Church.” (Passed by 328 – 16)
By “explicitly and carefully” integrating ecology into the teaching and liturgy, do they mean bringing a Pachamama pagan statue into the sanctuary or indoctrinating children that human existence is a plight on Mother Earth? If so, the Church will become yet another worthless secular institution stoking fear and honoring false gods.
On Polygamy SECAM (Symposium of the Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar) is encouraged to promote a theological and pastoral discernment on question of polygamy and the accompaniment of people in polygamous unions who are coming to faith. (Pass rate unknown)
Here’s a novel idea: why not as Jesus said, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirt teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19-20. And Jesus commanded that marriage should remain between one man and one woman. People in polygamous unions will then have a difficult decision to make. Either stop their pagan ways or enter the Church. The Church cannot and should not bend its precepts to accommodate any and all kinds of deviant behavior.
The Synod on Synodality, with all its ambiguous language and cloaked revolutionary tendencies, has revealed something very clearly. The world now knows that anything is on the table for discussion, and the once magnificent moral authority of the Catholic Church has been totally gutted. It has been reported that only 1% of Catholics worldwide participated in this synod, which has been going on in local dioceses since 2021. The 99% of Catholics who have not been involved need to now stand up for our beloved Mother Church. We cannot let these charlatans debase any further the institution that has meant so much to us and our loved ones.
