March 12, 2021, (LifeSiteNews) – The famous firebrand activist and now “ex-gay” man Milo Yiannopoulos has detailed the role which St. Joseph has played in his decision to lead a chaste lifestyle, calling him the “perfect person” to turn to.
Yiannopoulos spoke first to LifeSiteNews’s Doug Mainwaring, in an interview which has subsequently spread virally, describing how he arrived at the decision of “‘coming out’ as straight.”
In that process, St. Joseph played a pivotal role. Speaking to Mainwaring, Yiannopoulos mentioned how as the “spiritual father figure of the Holy Family,” St. Joseph seemed the ideal one to turn to. “In this time of gender madness, devoting myself to the male protector of the infant Jesus is an act of faith in God’s Holy Patriarch, and a rejection of the Terror of transsexuals.”
In this year dedicated to St. Joseph, Yiannopoulos has been publicly leading a consecration to St. Joseph, in order to finish in time for the feast on March 19.
Now, in a follow up interview with LifeSiteNews co-founder John-Henry Westen, Yiannopoulos expanded on his consecration to St. Joseph and the role St. Joseph has in his life.
Yiannopoulos mentioned how he was pointed to the devotion by a friend: “there are these moments where everything just seems to hang together so perfectly and to align so beautifully.”
He noted how consecrating oneself to St. Joseph was a way in which to suitably commit to a chaste lifestyle, focussed on combatting “gender identity madness.” As such, “as an entry point into this way of living, St. Joseph was kind of the perfect point of commonality with all of the things that have preoccupied me professionally and spiritually, as the patriarch, as the spiritual father, as the head of the holy family.”
Nor is Yiannopoulus alone in his decision. He mentioned how the devotion to St. Joseph is often recommended by pious people, for any man who is a “philanderer…or have some sort of runaway sexual appetite as a man,” in order that one might “come to Christ through St. Joseph because of his perfect representation of virtuous masculinity, and of the heroic manly virtues.”
The head of the Holy Family embodies what men should aspire to, continued Yiannopoulos, describing St. Joseph as “a provider, a protector – being the sensitive and loving and pious, but strong, protective head of the family.”
The so-called 'Equality Act' contains deadly poison for Christian democracy in the United States. And, its harmless-sounding name tries to hide this insidious reality.
But, unfortunately, Pelosi and company have JUST PASSED this morally repugnant bill in the US House of Representatives.
Pro-life and pro-family organizations, as well as Christian churches and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and freedom-loving groups everywhere, are now sounding the alarm.
Wake up, America, this is RED ALERT time!
This petition, therefore, calls on every US Senator to vigorously oppose and reject this bill.
Yes, it's THAT important.
The bill has nothing to do with "equality," or with extending the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which is how it is being touted by the leftists in the mainstream media.
It is, rather, one of the MOST EXTREME anti-life, pro-LGBT indoctrination bills ever proposed.
It has been described as a short-list of the worst possible elements of the Radical Left's agenda in Congress...and, REMEMBER, it has just passed the House!
We need to tell all US Senators, in no uncertain terms, that WE WILL NOT ACCEPT this outrageous attack on our freedoms and on life, itself!
SIGN AND SHARE THIS URGENT PETITION, TODAY!
And, after you have signed this petition, please CLICK HERE to DIRECTLY CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATORS, and tell them to oppose this assault on our freedoms of thought, speech, conscience and religion.
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Below are some of the devastating critiques of 'Equality Act,' leveled by some of the best conservative, Christian minds in the country.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC), has written that the 'Equality Act' will include, "the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion this country has ever seen.”
"Under this big new umbrella of 'discrimination,'" continued Perkins, "any American who doesn’t want to fund, offer, perform, or participate in abortion on demand will have no real choice. They can conform — or they can be punished."
"Every wall that’s been built between abortion and the government would come crashing down, including the Hyde Amendment, the pro-conscience Weldon Amendment, and several international barriers that keep our country from exporting abortion."
ON CHRISTIANITY, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM and LGBT INDOCTRINATION:
Lloyd Marcus, of the American Thinker publication, has written about the 'Equality Act' in the following terms:
"LGBTQ enforcer and homosexual Democrat congressman David Cicilline is sponsor of the Equality Act. Cicilline's evil bill is the most aggressive assault on our constitutional religious liberties in U.S. history...If the Equality Act becomes the law of the land, every outrageous, tyrannical demand [of LGBTQ activists/enforcers] will become reality."
And, Liberty Counsel Action, a law and policy education, training and advocacy organization which, among other things, advances religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and the family has extensively criticized the 'Equality Act'.
On their webpage, dedicated to analyzing the 'Equality Act', which you can access below, Liberty Counsel Action state: "The 'Equality' Act' elevates 'sexual orientation and gender identity' to the same protected category as race. It will violate the religious freedom of Americans in numerous ways."
The go on to list the areas of life which this will affect: "It will impact all employers, including religious and non-profit organizations; contractors; houses of worship; public, private, and religious schools; curriculum; bathrooms; sports; daycare providers; shelters; hospitals; places of gatherings; entertainment providers; counselors; foster care and adoption; biological parents; landlords; anywhere providing a “good, service, or program,” including those advertised online; transportation drivers; and all local, state, and federal entities and many other areas."
And, as they note: "[T]here is NO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION to this bill!"
Taking into account all of these potential threats to Christian democracy, Life and religious freedom, it is easy to see how the so-called 'Equality Act' has been called a "poison pill."
It is imperative that the US Senate vigorously reject this bill, AND EXPOSE IT FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS.
Please SIGN this urgent petition, TODAY!

LifeSiteNews opinion and analysis of the so-called 'Equality Act':
“That’s what I’ve always aspired to be professionally, to the disaffected young men that I’ve always been speaking to through my journalism,” he said, adding, “whether I’m talking about men who give up on women and disappear into porn or video games, or whether it’s Gamergate.”
Yiannopoulos indicated that this devotion to St. Joseph was also a timely and important one for the modern age, since “there’s this huge religious revival among young conservatives at the moment, who unfortunately are looking at the Catholic Church and seeing a sick, corrupted, degenerate institution, and saying ‘nope,’ and instead looking East and getting drawn into Eastern Orthodox Church.”
“I felt that he [St. Joseph] was the perfect person for me to do this with, publicly, because it just seemed to be very congruent with how I feel about what’s lacking in the world, and what I would like to see more of in myself.”
