Celebrated Matthew Shepard & the Forgotten Mary Stachowicz
by Barbara Kralis
(New Oxford Review, May, 2003)
How many of us are ready and willing,
spiritually and catechically, "to fearlessly proclaim the
complete and authentic truth on Christ, the Church and the world,
without reductionism or ambiguities" (JPII, 9/01).
Mary Stachowicz was willing and she
did catechize the Word of God and she was brutally murdered
for her beliefs. The hate crime was committed on November l3,
2002, the feast day of St. Frances Cabrini, virgin, the first U.S.
Saint to be canonized.
Mary, the gentle, devout 51 year old
Catholic mother of four asked a Chicago homosexual man, Nicholas Gutierrez,
19, "Why do you want to have sex with boys instead of girls?"
Gutierrez said she began to counsel him about his lack of good
direction in life.
The disordered Gutierrez confessed
to the crime during a videotaped interrogation and explained he became
furious when Stachowicz asked him the question. He then brutally
punched and kicked Mary until he was exhausted; next, he mutilated
her body with multiple stab wounds. While Mary was still alive,
he shoved a garbage bag over her head, strangled her, and jammed her
body into the crawl space under the floor of his Chicago apartment,
was above at the Sikorski Funeral Home where they both worked. The
Funeral Home is right across the street from Mary's parish,
where moments before she had received Holy Communion. Her mutilated
body was discovered three days after she was slaughtered.
Mrs. Mary Stachowicz, a Polish translator, was witnessing her well-formed
Catholic conscience and was murdered for it. She performed the
appropriate Spiritual Work of Mercy...instruct the ignorant, admonish
The secular news media refuse to touch
this story because it's about homosexuality.
And perhaps because legislation has been passed in the U.S. (New York
State is one) to make it a punishable criminal offense to speak out
against homosexuality. In New York City, 'tolerant' Democrats have
made it a crime to condemn homosexuality using bible verses or opinions
on billboards (intolerance).
In Canada, it's illegal to speak one's convictions concerning the
practice of homosexuality without penalty. TV, radio and print
media in Canada cannot use bible passages that condemn homosexuality.
Some Canadians have already been jailed for their opinions against
the effects of sodomy in their society. No, this is not Nazi Germany
in the l940's. This is the United States and our closest neighbor,
Pro-homosexual, and alleged Catholic, Senator Ted Kennedy is re-sponsoring
a 'hate crimes' bill, Senate Bill S.625, another bad law, which would
give homosexuals more protection than any other group of people in
the nation. In other words, a heterosexual person isn't as worthy
as a homosexual person.
Most American's are already timid about teaching God's Truth on the
mortal sin of sodomy, the great scourge dividing our nation in deep
misery and confusion, without the added fear of being imprisoned for
doing so. Mary wasn't intimidated.
That Mary cared enough to intervene didn't surprise her pastor.
"She was a very intense person concerned about the good of the
parish always seeking things for the poor as well as the spiritual
welfare of people," said Rev. Francis Rog of St. Hyacinth Catholic
Alas, Mary's practically forgotten,
even though her murder was less than 3 months ago. Where's the outrage
from Christians? No one wants to talk about it.
Only several of the total U.S. secular news pieces written about Mary's
murder made it into the two Chicago news dailies, the scene of this
Of Mary's murder, the Chicago Sun-Times, on November 18, carefully
headlined, "Arrest in funeral home death."
The day before it said, "Body found in funeral home
was stabbed." The Chicago Tribune said, "Body
identified as missing woman." The final piece published in
the Tribune subtly headlined, "Quarrel preceded
slaying, officials say." The subhead, small print,
gave the only hint in Chicago about what really took place: "Suspect's
lifestyle allegedly at issue."
Could their silence be signaling that the homosexual already have
preferential treatment when it comes to 'hate crimes' murders?
Within a 30 day period, in l998, over 3,000 articles were written
about Matthew Shepard, the homosexual college student who was killed
by three men in Wyoming. Is this a double standard
in how hate crimes statutes are applied, as well as how the media
cover the crimes?
Stupendous reactions among homosexual web sites and chat lines
have been reported to range from "she deserved what she got,"
"Where do I send a check for Gutierrez's defense," to "Maybe
this will send a message to the religious zealots to mind their own
"If a gay man had been murdered for trying
to convince someone to be gay, it would be a national news story and
deemed a hate crime. But when a gay man murders a woman who tried
to convince him to change, the media spike the story," said Peter
LaBarbera, senior policy analyst for the Culture and Family Institute
for Concerned Women for America. "If Matthew Shepard's murder
deserved national media attention, then why not Mary Stachowicz's?...It's
going to be hard for people to say this is not an anti-Christian hate
crime committed by a homosexual activist," he says. "But
I fully expect the media to not pay a lot of attention to this case."
Mary Coleman, Stachowicz's friend,
told the Chicago Tribune, "Those of us who knew her immediately
hear her soft voice saying something like, 'God wouldn't approve of
the way you're living your life.' "
Mary Stachowicz's death parallels that of St. Maria Goretti, her namesake.
St. Maria was also brutally stabbed to death as she resisted Alessandro
Serenelli's sinful, lustful advances.
Will we someday see Mary Stachowicz recognized by the Church for her
courage? Will we ever witness Nicholas Gutierrez's repentance
and return to God, as we witnessed the dramatic conversion of Alessandro
Serenelli, Maria's murderer? Alessandro spent the rest of his
life traveling the world to witness of God's mercy and forgiveness
until his death in 1970 at the Capuchin convent of Macerata, where
he lived out his life in reparation.

to Disney World? Bring a Blindfold:
Homosexuals Overtake Park During Disney Sponsored "Gay Days"
Karl Maurer - From an article at www.christianaction.org
A few years ago, Disney
CEO Michael Eisner bragged that as many as a third of all Disney Corporation
employees were homosexuals. Given the events that occurred at Gay
Day at Disney World in Florida (June 3rd through June 8th of this
year) Mr. Eisner may soon be whistling a different tune while he works.
Martin Mawyer, president
of Christian Action Network, was disgusted that Disney would sponsor
such depravity. So, like millions of Americans do every year, he packed
up his movie camera, and went to Disney World.
“The video footage
we captured on film is the most brazen and shameless display of public
homosexuality I’ve ever seen,” Mr. Mawyer said. “And to think it occurred
at Disney World is simply stunning and beyond belief.”
During the first night
of Gay Day, Mawyer visited the Disney-owned dance club, Mannequins,
where he was ordered by employees to turn off his camera, allegedly,
to protect the privacy of the patrons. Moving to a nearby park he
as again ordered to turn off his camera and then threatened with arrest
“The police never
came. And I suspect it’s because there’s no law against taking pictures
at Disney World. It was a bluff,” Mr. Mawyer said. “They were hoping
to intimidate me so I would stop filming this damning evidence against
Disney World and their sponsorship of Gay Days.”
“It’s absolutely impossible
to describe the depth of depravity we saw. Not only did we see men
kissing men, but these shirtless homosexuals were twisting the nipples
of each other and fondling the butts and groins of their ‘lovers’.
And all this occurred right out in the open at a Disney theme park,”
Mr. Mawyer said.
Mr. Mawyer has indicated
he is planning on editing and distributing his video in the form of
a CD, which he intends to share with not only religious groups, but
“We must expose this
event to protect unsuspecting families who may make plans to attend
Disney World during Gay Days. Parents and children should not
be exposed to this homosexual romp at a ‘family’ theme park,” Mr.
“Disney should be ashamed
for allowing this perverted activity to take place at their parks.
But to threaten to have me arrested for taking pictures -- something
clearly legal at Disney World -- while allowing homosexuals to publicly
fondle one another just goes to show how warped the minds of Disney
officials have become,” said Mr. Mawyer.
So if you're taking
the kids to Disney World next year, bring blindfolds, and be prepared
for the worst that the magic kingdom has to offer.

Website Attacks Francis Cardinal George
and Catholic Conference of Illinois in Battle Over Extending Legal
Protection to Homosexuals
Homosexuals in Chicago
are taking notice of the large numbers of Catholics who have mobilized
during the year to stop gay rights proposals in the state General
Assembly that would extend previously unheard of "rights"
to persons who claim to engage in homosexual behavior.
of conservative groups have joined forces with the Catholic Conference
of Illinois to inform law makers that protecting cross dressing public
school teachers and mandating gay-friendly public school courses is
simply bad public policy and wrong.
The response from the
homosexual community is to a large degree a confirmation that Catholics
and decency are winning the day. The article below is from datalounge.com,
a homosexual news site.
Please continue to
pray for law makers, Cardinal George and all Illinois bishops, and
homosexuals as well as their families.
Riles Gays in Illinois" May 16, 2003
CHICAGO -- Gay and
lesbian civil rights advocates in Illinois have strongly condemned
the Catholic archdiocese in Chicago for intense lobbying efforts by
the church aimed at undermining support for a statewide anti-bias
>"We've put out
a call for all gay Catholics to respond," Martin Grochala of
Dignity Chicago, a gay and lesbian Catholic organization, told the
Free Press. "We're telling them to call their senators and Chicago
Cardinal Francis George's office. This really is a Catholic justice
in Cardinal George's crown"
Rights advocates charge
the Catholic Conference of Illinois, which represents Cardinal George
and other church leaders, "employs faulty logic to come to its
negative judgment about [the gay anti-bias bill].
"There is no reason
why a Catholic legislator of good conscience cannot vote for the bill,"
the Dignity letter stated. "Doing so actually upholds the basic
principles of Catholic social teaching, which compels Catholics to
oppose discrimination and acknowledges the fundamental dignity of
the human person."
The Catholic organization
says that while the church believes discrimination against gay people
is wrong, they also believe passage of the bill would signal the state's
endorsement of gay and lesbian sex. Rights advocates say the church
is twisting its own teachings to oppose a law it should support.

concern of the [Illinois anti-bias bill]," Dignity said in its
letter. "The bishops can only see us as sexual people (whether
we are or not) and are

to "Gays Gain Victory"
Dear Mr. Goldberg,
My name is Allyson Smith and I am a writer for San Diego News Notes
and an occasional contributor to Concerned Women for America's "Culture
and Family Report." I am writing to you to comment on your June
20 essay on Townhall.com, "Time to face facts: Gays gain victory".
As one who has observed and written about the rise of the U.S. and
Canadian homosexual movement for nearly five years -- and who has
dedicated most of her free time since to resisting it -- I must take
exception to some of the statements in your essay. While I usually
admire your work a great deal, I feel that you are missing some important
points on this issue.
First, it far from certain "the gays have won". Although
it may appear that way in popular culture because of gays' never-ending
whining, their stranglehold on positions of influence, and a lapdog
mainstream media, there is still a vast majority of people who are
repulsed by homosexual behavior and consider it an "abomination".
Whether the reasons for this repulsion are religious or otherwise,
the fact remains that homosexual behavior has been proscribed for
thousands of years because it goes against conscience, divine revelation,
and Nature's design.
Second, I believe that there is a growing backlash of ordinary folks
who are tired of having their lives disrupted, their businesses sued,
their employment practices coerced, their political institutions overtaken,
their children indoctrinated, and their backs generally pushed against
the wall by pro-homosexual activists.
Such actions were my own personal impetus for getting involved in
fighting the "gay agenda" four years ago after homosexuals
and their "straight" allies -- over the objections of hundreds
of parents, pastors and other concerned citizens -- forced "sexual
orientation" language into the hiring and curriculum policies
of the high school district I graduated from in East San Diego County,
California. I personally know many other people who got into the fight
for just this reason.
As this backlash grows, the winner of this fight is far from certain.
Third, true social conservatives can never accept making "the
best of what they consider a bad situation." No matter how bad
it may get, we can never cave into homosexual fascism.
Despite a history-deficient, dumbed-down citizenry that has bought
the lie that accepting homosexuality is the "enlightened"
and "progressive" thing to do, the fact remains that homosexuality
is physically, morally, socially and spiritually destructive.
The greater good of society -- including the welfare of children --
means nothing to homosexuals who surround and destroy people and institutions
in order to further their own selfish and perverted ends.
Your assertion that social conservatives should acknowledge defeat
and make "some painful capitulations -intellectual, moral, philosophical
and financial," is anathema to us. True conservatives will never
acknowledge defeat, but will continue to fight against the destruction
of our society by "gay" activists with every means at our
disposal, no matter how dark the situation appears to be.
Finally, do not cling to the false hope that gays will follow your
advice to "understand that they've won and that the best course
of action for them would be magnanimity in victory."
The most famous example of homosexual "magnanimity" occurs
in the Torah. The book of Genesis (Bereishis) describes how the men
of Sodom, young and old, tried to break down Lot's door in order to
have sex with the angels inside whom they perceived to be men. When
Lot tried to capitulate by offering the "hospitality" of
sexual relations with his two virgin daughters, the sodomites threatened
to kill him.
The timeless parallels of this ancient story to current events are
entirely apropos to the situation in which we find ourselves today.
For example, here is the response of Rusty Morris, a Florida sodomite
and member of the "usQueers" discussion group, to your advice
to be gracious in victory:
"Winning a thing and KEEPING a thing are two different things.
As for magnanimity....wrong. The bigot Nazis should stand still while
we file by and spit in their faces for every gay person that's been
hurt or killed!"
Morris and other members of the usQueers group repeatedly make e-mail
threats against me and other conservatives. Their comments reveal
truly black and evil hearts.
Time and time again, gays have shown that they desire not to be gracious
to their opponents but rather to silence, punish and eventually eliminate
them. That means they want to obliterate you, me, and anyone else
who dares raise a peep against them. Dr. Laura Schlessinger and Michael
Savage are two national commentators who immediately come to mind,
but lesser-known examples of homosexual intolerance are legion.
Wisconsin pastor Ralph Ovadal has been knocked unconscious, been stun
gunned, spit on, had things thrown at him, and been threatened hundreds
of times by "tolerant" homosexual activists.
In 1997, while anti-homosexual Wisconsin firefighter Ron Greer was
speaking at a church in Madison, 300 sodomites and their supporters
surrounded the building chanting, "Bring back the lions."
Employee Rolf Szabo was fired last fall from his 23-year-career at
Kodak after objecting to a pro-homosexual company memo.
Just a few days ago, homosexual activists threw cream pies at members
of Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church during a protest at an Iowa
Homosexual activists physically surrounded me after I spoke out against
them at a San Diego City Council meeting in December 2001 where I
opposed their attempts to run the Boy Scouts out of their Balboa Park
headquarters. I have experienced firsthand their graciousness toward
opponents - and it is anything but.
Homosexuals magnanimous in victory? It will never happen.
Social conservatives capitulate? That will never happen, either. The
two worldviews are entirely opposed, mutually exclusive, and engaged
in a fight to the death.
Jonah, may I offer you some advice? In the future, please help preserve
our society -- and your own heritage -- by writing about why homosexuality
must be opposed instead of capitulated to.
As the Torah tells us, our very lives depend on it.
