As the world grapples with the homosexual revolution’s efforts to subvert public morality regarding homosexual acts–urging people to reject the perennial teachings of the Catholic Church and natural moral law that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered” and “grave sins,” and striving to have such acts accepted by all as perfectly normal–it pains us to see Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria using the prestige of the crown to promote the homosexual agenda.
On February 4, the heiress to the Swedish throne showed up unexpectedly at Stockholm’s Gay Gala, an annual event organized by the Scandinavian QX magazine, and gave the “Gay of the Year” prize to comedian Jonas Gardell (click here to read The Local’s Feb. 5, 2013 news story).
Few things have greater influence over minds and souls than the natural leadership of royalty and nobility. Thus, it is tragic beyond description when this influence is abused to promote the homosexual revolutionary agenda.
This great natural influence of the nobility should be used solely to foster the common good of their people. It should be used to promote public morality, never sin and vice. While all of us should strive to set a good example, the responsibility to do this is greater for royalty and nobility. “[T]o whom much is given, much will be expected” (Lk. 12:48).
In due proportion, Our Lord’s admonition to the Apostles, applies to our elites as well: “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt lose its savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is good for nothing any more but to be cast out, and to be trodden on by men.You are the light of the world. A city seated on a mountain cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but upon a candlestick, that it may shine to all that are in the house. So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Matt. 5:13-16).
Our elites desert their mission of leadership at great peril.
