ROME (LifeSiteNews) — African Catholic leaders from Uganda and Kenya are joining with LifeSiteNews and America’s best-known traditional Catholic Michael Matt, as well as traditional Catholic activists from around the world, in condemning the Synod on Synodality’s departure from the teachings of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Holy Scriptures.   

Since 2013, the attempt to weaken Church doctrine on life, faith, family and the human person has shocked and angered faithful Catholics. Battered by endless scandals concerning clerical sexual – particularly homosexual – misconduct, they will not accept the Synod on Synodality’s betrayal of Our Lord’s teachings regarding marriage, which countless Catholic martyrs have defended at the cost of their lives.  

Neither will they accept the attempts of corrupt clergymen to overthrow ancient teachings against unnatural sexual acts. Faithful Catholics profess that any “love” that entices men and women to serious sin and their eventual damnation is not love at all.      

St. Paul clearly stated in a pastoral letter to the Christian community in the diverse and sexually uninhibited city of Corinth that the following could not enter the Kingdom of Heaven: “Fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, sodomites, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, revilers, robbers—none of these will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Cor. 6: 9-10).  

LifeSiteNews invites the media of the Church and the world to a press conference at the Augustinianum on October 30. The press conference will be in English. 

The following Catholic leaders from around the world will make short presentations and be available for media questions:  

  • Ugandan Member of Parliament Hon. Lucy Akello
