Italian Bishops' Conference Grooming Children with Aberrosexual Spectacle
"Italy sends queer duet" to the Eurovision Song Contest, and the German gay scene is also pleased. This refers to Blanco & Mahmood. On Easter Monday, Blanco was even allowed to perform in St. Peter's Square, as a "prelude" for Pope Francis.

Instead of explaining to parents how to regain the dimension of father and mother according to Christian principles and to reconnect the torn thread to the sense of the holiness of the family, the Italian Bishops' Conference for Easter Monday, when the Church commemorates the angelic apparition at the empty tomb of Jesus (Mk 16:1-7), has invited the 19-year-old Generation Z rapper Blanco (Riccardo Fabbriconi), winner of the anti-Christian and blasphemous Sanremo Festival 2022 with "Brividi" ("Goosebumps"), a song that puts aberrosexuality and heterosexuality on the same level, to perform in front of 57,000 young people "on pilgrimage" before the Pope's arrival for the prayer vigil at 6 pm. So, in order to attract the attention of the youth who suffer from social networks, sex and broken families, the Church needs witnesses who lead even the young people light years away from God? Is that the purpose of the Church?
Don Michele Falabretti, head of the Office for Youth Pastoral Care of the Italian Bishops' Conference, said: "We thought we were giving a gift to boys and girls", because the context must be taken into account: "Woe betide you if you underestimate him! You run the risk of not being on the same wavelength." For the prelate, it is unthinkable "to talk to them, to convince them with arguments or words, if one is not first willing to listen to them without giving the appearance of wiping away their world with a swipe, judging it as dirty and unsuitable." The method developed by Saint John Bosco, not to draw attention to himself, but to save souls, was that of preventing evils and Christian joy, without the need to scrape together the perversions of the world and the artists who contradict the laws of God.
"The Church has always promoted art to lift up the spirit, while in this way approving vulgarity," said Msgr. Antonio Suetta, bishop of Ventimiglia, who spoke out against the decision of the Episcopal Conference. "I have heard this news with great negative surprise, for two reasons: firstly, I do not believe that this figure is a suitable model for a Catholic initiative aimed at young people, and secondly, I do not know the person, which is why I cannot comment on him. It is clear that the message conveyed during Blanco's performances does not fit into a Catholic context. I find it shameful that a figure who, especially after her victory at the festival together with Mahmood, has clearly become an icon of a certain conception of life, freedom, affectivity, etc., is performing in St. Peter's Square."
The attempt to attract the attention of young people, most of whom are engulfed by a cynical, irreverent, misanthropic and even violent culture (think of the actions of the baby gangs), is not only a pleasure for the LGBTQ movements, but a real blasphemy: in the forecourt of St. Peter's Basilica, it is not permissible to give space to those who speak words full of nausea, Shamefulness, profanity and swear words. The nightmare that the generation of children of the infernal contemporary "candle wick" consciously lives is also lived, but unconsciously, by the Church, overwhelmed by the fashion, chaos and masochism of an unreasonable and desecratory time. In the meantime, the connection to the reality of the Gospel and thus to what Jesus really taught has been lost. An example: the good shepherd seeks and finds the lost sheep; it is not the sheep that misleads the other 99. There is also an incontrovertible fact: just as you cannot serve two masters (God and the world), you cannot give paradise and Hell as the end goal at the same time.
