The “Parentage Equality Bill” is one of the most radical laws to ever be passed by the Mass. House, commodifying women and allowing children to be treated as nothing more than items to be sold, in addition to redefining the entire idea of what it means to be a parent.

The Act openly attacks the family by replacing the terms “mother” and “father” with absurd phrases such as “person who gives birth”, “other parent” and “genetic source.”

We still have time to stop this Orwellian bill from further undermining our society, but we must act now!

H.4672 redefines parenthood “on the basis of a ‘person’s intent to be a parent of a child,’” notes Patience Griswold of Them Before Us (TBU), an organization devoted to protecting children’s rights. “In doing so, it strips all mention of mothers and fathers from parentage law, replacing these vital familial roles with gender-erased language.”

Even more worryingly, the bill would allow a mother to accept money for her child before the child is born via a surrogacy contract, through which she could “‘match’ with the couple willing to pay the highest ‘payment of consideration,’ essentially auctioning off her child.”

The bill has passed in the House, but the Senate has yet to vote. We must act now and stand up for women, children, and the dignity of the family.

Please sign and share our message today with as many people as possible. 

Yours faithfully,

The Anxious Generation

June 15, 2024

My hope is that this lawsuit encourages productive dialogue between employees of faith and their employers. No employee should be expected to abandon their faith when entering the workplace and unfortunately, I felt backed into a corner where my faith was incompatible with the requirements of my job. My prayer is that people of faith will flourish in the workplace and not feel as if they need to hide that part of themselves in order to be successful in their jobs.

We are told that the Church which we profess, in communion with our ancestors in the faith from the time of the Apostles, to be One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic is now to be defined by synodality, a term which has no history in the doctrine of the Church and for which there is no reasonable definition. Synodality and its adjective, synodal, have become slogans behind which a revolution is at work to change radically the Church’s self-understanding, in accord with a contemporary ideology which denies much of what the Church has always taught and practiced. It is not a purely theoretical matter, for the ideology has already, for some years, been put into practice in the Church in Germany, spreading widely confusion and error and their fruit, division – indeed schism – , to the grave harm of many souls. With the imminent Synod on Synodality, it is rightly to be feared that the same confusion and error and division will be visited upon the universal Church. In fact, it has already begun to happen through the preparation of the Synod at the local level.

Only the truth of Christ, as it is handed down to us in the unchanging and unchangeable doctrine and discipline of the Church, can address effectively the situation by uncovering the ideology at work, by correcting the deadly confusion and error and division it is propagating, and by inspiring the members of the Church to undertake the true reform which is daily conversion to Christ alive for us in the Church’s teaching, her prayer and worship, and her practice of the virtues and discipline. 

Cardinal Ramond Burke

There is nothing in the holy, inspired Scripture about the death of Mary, the holy Mother of God; but we know from ancient and wholly reliable tradition that at the time she so gloriously fell asleep, all the holy Apostles, who were traveling the world for the salvation of the peoples, were lifted up in a single instant of time and were gathered at Jerusalem; and as they stood by here, they saw a vision of angels, and heard the divine chanting of higher powers. So it was that she gave her soul, in an ineffable way, into God’s hands, surrounded by the glory of God and all heaven. Her body, which had been God’s dwelling place, was brought for burial amidst the singing of the angels and the Apostles, and laid to rest in a coffin in Gethsemane; and the angelic dancing and singing continued without pause in that place for three days. But after three days, the song of the angels ceased; the Apostles were there, and since one of them–Thomas–had not been present [for her burial] and came at the end of three days, and wished to reverence the body which had housed God, they opened the coffin. And they could not find her body, which had been the object of such praise; all that they found were her burial wrappings. And being overcome by the ineffable fragrance that came out of the wrappings, they closed the coffin again. Amazed by this miraculous discovery, they could only draw a single conclusion: the one who had deigned to become flesh in her own person, and to take his humanity from her, the one who willed to be born in human flesh as God the Word, the Lord of glory, and who had preserved her virginity intact even after childbirth, now chose, after her departure from this world, to honor her immaculate and pure body with the gift of incorruptibility, and with a change of state even before the common, universal resurrection.

St. Juvenal, archbishop of Jerusalem, before the Council of Chalcedon of 451, as quoted in Euthymian history
