Far Exceeding Expectation One Million Demonstrated in Rome Against Gender Ideology

One Million Demonstrated in Rome for the Family Against
Gender Ideology and the Government
(Rome) The rally was called "Defending our Children" and not Manif Pour Tous as in France, but it was an Italian Manif Pour Tous and what a one it was. One million Italians got up last Saturday for the defense of the family and   protested against the gender ideology of the left-wing government. The magnitude is sensational for Italy. It was only for 18 days that  the organizing committee had appealed to the public to mobilize against a government decree.
"Let us defend our children" is a Catholic initiative, which has also joined with secular forces. But the impetus came, as the Manif pour tous in France, from the Catholic heart. That does mean something. The organizing committee wanted to act independently and, therefore, had not appealed to  any parties and who therefore could not also collect revenue. This new independence contributes considerable fruit in Italy.  The same has been happening for several years already  with the March for Life, which brought 50,000 people to the streets in Rome in May. These are orders of magnitude, which would have been unthinkable before, when the pro-life movement was hedged institutionally between Bishops and Christian Democratic Party.
The million that rose on Saturday to defend the children which so impressively raised its  voice, exceeded all expectations. The organizing committee deliberately chose before the Lateran Basilica, the Piazza San Giovanni, the traditional parade ground of the Italian left, which holds its May 1 celebrations there.  It's a  provocation against those who want to introduce the gender ideology with little discussion, but also a challenge to the organizers. The challenge was mastered brilliantly and the provocation succeeded. "The people are one step ahead, the politicians should take a pause for reflection," said Archbishop Luigi Negri in a first reaction. The Archbishop of Ferrara was one of the few bishops who had publicly called for participation.
All, especially the ruling Left were surprised. The surprise was so great that even the house journal of the Italian left-wing government, the daily newspaper La Repubblica , the event devoted  three pages to it. Likewise, the Corriere della Sera and other major newspapers in Italy. Giacomo Galeazzi's headline in La Stampa said: "A really impressive sight, beyond any expectation".  The gigantic participation was a bitter thorn in the eye to many editors. The anti-clerical tabloid Il Fatto Quotidiano headlined furiously: "The bigoted rights returns".

Thank you, God. Some people still have Gods Law or the Natural Law of reason. It will be ignored as the millions who protested in France. The NWO global government implements its agenda no matter that the majority might object, where there is still a majority that have not been corrupted and brainwashed.

Brilliant Demo that the forces of moral chaos ignore to their ultimate detriment. That only a few archbishops supported this magnificent manifestation of the defence of traditional Catholic morality on the family exposes the utter rottenness & cowardice of most of our neo-catholic leaders. In the meantime, Francis is busy making uneducation judgements about environmental science and obsessing about alleged global warming pandering to one world fascists; one world church modernisers and radical left wing environmental lobbies who want to reduce world population by 80%; reduce personal liberty to a fact of the past and who would like nothing more to see the end of Christianity.

This papacy is certainly not Roman Catholic in any sense at all.

And where, pray tell, are the bishops? At meetings discussing mission statements?

Good news! And Archbishop Negri is one of the most faithful in Italy. I suppose he is not invited to the synod then....

The Italian prime minister is trying to push through legalization of same sex unions in Italy. Has the Pope or any one in the Vatican said anything about this? I know he was in Turin the day of the rally, but did he have a prepared statement read in support of the pro-family ralliers in Rome?

I was at a March for Life in DC many years ago - the 2nd inauguration of Bill Clinton had just happened, and he had declared his support for abortion by promulgating a particularly obnoxious law that day - there were well over a million people there. This was told to me by several cops that I asked, and they were not partisan and didn't care, but were getting the stats from headquarters and the Park Service. Still, the NYT reported it as a few thousand. Then they had to revise it to a few hundred thousand.

Many news sources didn't even report it. If a tree falls in the forest....

"This papacy is certainly not Roman Catholic in any sense at all."

Many people have know that from day 1 of Francis papacy, and after Sunday and the lack of strong, visible support form the Pope .the Vatican, and thr Bishops of Italy....so does everyone.
Thjs rally flies against everything Francis and his cronies want to push at the Synod. That is why the deafening silence form the Pope and Vatican.
It is a provocation to them.

Catholic hearts are still beating in Rome, after all.

"Stop obsessing" about the promotion and mass scale execution of sins that cry out to God for vengeance.

Probably working for this evil, as in Ireland.
