How the Devil Works

As I relate in my book, Paul VI Paul VI offered libido as one way Satan, the “malign, clever seducer” undermines man’s sexual morality with his “sophistry.” The Devil’s strategy here, as the Pope cautioned, is “eminently logical.” He approaches man with what amounts to a false reason in his mind, which, if dwelled on, can influence the will by rousing him to do something evil which seems to be good. Deceit is basic to his strategy.

A contemporary demonstration:

During the Synod on the Family in 2015 Brisbane Archbishop Mark Coleridge argued against using the terms “intrinsically disordered” or “evil” to describe homosexual acts.  Moreover he argued that the traditional Catholic understanding of loving the sinner while hating the sin “no longer communicates” “in the real world” where sexuality is “part of [your] entire being.” Result? The moral legitimzation of mortal sin as revealed by the Creator!
