Did God Kill Homosexuals the Night of Jesus' Birth?

We are all very much aware of the problem of pedophilia within Roman Catholicism. It is my personal view that this problem emanates from the vast presence of homosexuals in the Church of Rome. This general suspicion is not new. 

Homosexuals were occasionally condemned by medieval writers, especially monastic writers concerned about the sexual improprieties flourishing in all-male communities sworn to chastity. Citing early Christian authorities, Jacobus de Voragine’s Golden Legend (1270-90) goes as far as to describe the annihilation of all “sodomites” on the night of Christ’s birth as one of a series of miraculous announcements of Christ’s birth. The writer enlists Jerome and Augustine for support, though no such statements can be traced to either. 

“To these shepherds, then, an angel appeared, and announced to them the birth of the Savior, telling them also how they might find their way to Him. And they heard a multitude of angels singing, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men of good will!' In yet another way, the Nativity was revealed through the Sodomites, who that night perished throughout the world. In this regard Saint Jerome tells us: 'So great a light arose that night that it extinguished all those who were given to this vice.' And Saint Augustine says that God could not take flesh in the nature of man as long as there existed, in this nature, an unnatural vice.”  [i]

Evidently the problem of "sexual improprieties flourishing in all-male communities sworn to chastity" is nothing new. But the answer is not to invent history, such as de Voragine has done. The true Church must remain resolute in its stand against all sexual vice.

  1. The scanner assembly that uses CCD usually has sensors arranged in three rows. These sensors have different filters such as the green, blue and red. Hand Scanner: In the early 1990s, equally drum scanners and flatbed scanners were too costly for simple home use. For that reason a number of companies produced small hand-held scanners. The hand-held scanner is available in two different forms such as 3D scanner and document scanner. Film Scanner: Special equipment is used to scan films. Film floor covering are moved crosswise a lens by using a 'stepper motor'. The CCD sensors placed inside the scanner, further scan these films.
