For decades belonging to a religion and being anything but heterosexual was stigmatized in Communist-ruled, macho Cuba, making the Mass held by three transgender pastors in the western Cuban city of Matanzas all the more groundbreaking.
Rainbow flags decorated the chapel, while the pastors, who had flown in from Brazil, Canada and the United States, wore stoles in the trans hues of light blue, pink and white and the congregation swayed to Caribbean beats.
Friday was the first time a trans pastor held a Holy Communion in Cuba, highlighting how much the island nation has changed since both religious believers and homosexuals went to "correctional" labor camps in the early years after the 1959 revolution....
How dare you speak to me. Don't you know who I am? I'm the one who dares to have patience with people and show compassion. My style differs from the many, so I can't possibly be a brother. I take the long route with some instead of hitting them hard out of the gate, depending on the circumstances, so I'm not worthy of a response, or to be spoken to. ūüėä Don't do it again. Hope you're doing well over there in Aussieland. I heard you all just started using round wheels...good for you. Those poor donkeys need a break from pulling your animal pelt wagons with square, concrete wheels.
Oh and Christopherooo ūüėú or comments were being posted at the same time. As I submitted comment yours appeared, apparently 2 min earlier, so my thoughts were not made in light of yours by the way mate
I have read this article. This "Mass" was not actually a Catholic service. It was held by an openly LGBT denomination known as the Metropolitan Community Church, which though it originated in the USA, has branches in many other countries in the world including my own, United Kingdom.
Tragically, there are, I believe some transgender vicars in the Church of England, and no doubt elsewhere in other liberal Protestant denominations.
To return to Cuba, this whole thing makes a mockery of the dear persecuted saints who have been imprisoned in Cuba in the past, and I am sure that Obama's new diplomatic mission in that country, when he opened up diplomatic relations with Cuba, had a lot to do with this sudden acceptance of the LGBT wickedness in that country.
The LGBT agenda has been rapidly spread to "macho"'Latin America, and I know there are even "gay" "Pentecostal" and "Evangelical" churches now established in Brazil, and no doubt other Latin American countries.
A real good site that allows one a good insight into what the real Cuba looks like without the tinted glasses on from PC world. May Christ encourage His redeemed people who are living for no King but Christ alone, as their is no salvation in any other alone amen.
It is high time that we completely distance ourselves from those professing to be brothers, yet continue in their lies and idolatry. That's what God says John yurich. G'day Christopher, sorry to address you publicly, I envision people cringing when ever I do, but stiff.
Perverts, Sodomy, has over the centuries been allowed to flourish by Roman Catholicism, indeed even catered for with their endless supply of innocent children, being handed over for devilish and abhorrent treatment of little ones, they will surely be judged come the day of our Lord.
Yep...there have been countless sodomite Popes and Priests throughout history. Speak out against the sin openly while committing the sin in secret. Oh, and confess it daily to avoid judgement. Rome isn't alone though. How many Evangelical, Baptist, Charismatic, etc, etc, Pastors have been caught doing the same, or other sins, while speaking against the same from their pulpits on Sunday's, etc.? I always wonder what their thought process is as they stand there preaching hipocrisy and slamming their fists down while condemning the very sins they, themselves are actively committing. I'm certainly not above sin, that's for sure, but being in a leadership position such as that, I'd be afraid I'd be struck dead. My bottom line thought is that they have lost their fear of The Lord.

"Pope Benedict IX (Latin: Benedictus IX; c. 1012 ‚Äď c. 1056), born Theophylactus of Tusculum in Rome, was Pope on three occasions between October 1032 and July 1048. Aged approximately 20 at his first election, he is one of the youngest popes in history. historian Ferdinand Gregorovius wrote that in Benedict, "It seemed as if a demon from hell, in the disguise of a priest, occupied the chair of Peter and profaned the sacred mysteries of religion by his insolent courses." The Catholic Encyclopedia calls him "a disgrace to the Chair of Peter." He was the first pope rumoured to have been primarily homosexual. Pope Victor III, in his third book of Dialogues, referred to "his rapes, murders and other unspeakable acts of violence and sodomy."" In September 1044, opposition to Benedict IX's sodomitic lifestyle forced him out of the city again and elected John, Bishop of Sabina, as Pope Sylvester III" (Wiki)
It is high time that all homosexual and liberal Catholic priests are kicked out of the priesthood so that there are only heterosexual and conservative priests left in the priesthood. That is what all conservative lay Catholics want.
"Tonight has been a night of celebration of equality between all people, marking a new era for Cuba," said Alexya Salvador, a Brazilian trans pastor, born Alexander, wearing a black dress with a white clerical collar and lacy sleeves she made herself. "God's love is radically inclusive."
Yes Deb...they're not a part of Christ's church, but the unintentional mockery is astonishing. The sentence I quoted, "God's love is radically inclusive" says it all, and is the bottom line of Satan's deception...God made us this way, and He loves us as He made us. This is where the "it's not a choice" lie has taken root and evolved into a medically and scientifically proven "fact" based solely upon media hype and this lie being spoken of, using the airwaves, as a mass catalyst, to promote this lie as a fact. What an insult to the God of all that is, and alongside Roman Catholicism, amd Islam, etc, one of Satan's greatest masterpieces. These completely disregard the fact that God abhors acts against nature which He makes crystal clear throughout His Word, claiming that His Word is fluid...progressive and ever evolving with man. Sad.

Jude 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. 6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. 9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. - Mockers of truth- Allowed by commies as fellow haters of Christ.
Does anyone else cringe to see the sign of Almighy God's covenant with Noah mocked more and more? This story along with the one about Target's new merchandise affirm for me what Paul wrote in Romans 1:18-32. Lord, have mercy on your Church!
