The folks at Foundation for a Christian Civilization dba America Needs Fatima and dba American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (aka TFP) are trying to pray away marriage equality. According to a press release at Christian Newswire by the fundamentalist Catholic group:

As some begin to wonder what has happened to the Catholic opposition to same-sex “marriage,” TFP-America Needs Fatima is doing 3,108 public St. Joseph Rosaries for Traditional Marriage on, March 23, a Saturday close to Saint Joseph’s feast day.

This is the 5th consecutive year these rallies are carried out under the patronage of Saint Joseph, Head of the Holy Family, Terror of Demons and Pillar of the Family. And every year, our prayer warriors are gratified and inspired when they take this public stand for the unchanging reality of God’s natural marriage, the beautiful, fruitful and enduring union of one man and one woman.

If nothing else these rather crazy people are persistent, … and homophobic:

“This crusade is vital for America because many of our religious and political leaders are proving themselves unable or unwilling to stop the advances of the homosexual revolution,” said Francis Slobodnik, the campaign coordinator for America Needs Fatima.

I did not know that there was a “homosexual revolution.” Is that a substitute for the dreaded Homosexual Agenda™?

The legalization of same-sex “marriage” in America and the spreading of “Drag Queen Story Hours” for small children in public libraries using tax payer dollars, are wake-up calls for every American who cherishes the beauty and fruitfulness of God’s marriage.

Under the protection of Saint Joseph, patron of families, over 3,108 prayer captains will take to the streets, signs, banners and rosaries in hand, to make a public and prayerful stand for the true definition of marriage before God and before men.

TFP is a Catholic personality cult idolizing the late Brazilian right wing activist and fascist, Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira. TFP is like a merger of Opus Dei and the John Birch Society. The group also operates a school, St. Louis De Montfort Academy in Herndon PA. The school is not accredited and kids spend more time in prayer than academic study. Requiring additional distractions from academic pursuits those students travel around the country in groups to demonstrate their disdain for gay people.

America Needs Fatima and American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property are actually campaigns of the Foundation for a Christian Civilization. Revenues for the year ended June 30, 2018 were $15 million, an increase from $12 million the prior year. The school is a separate entity with revenues of $500K.

TFP has an additional entity: Tradition, Family and Property Inc., with revenues less than $50K annually. One more related entity is Tradition Family Property Louisiana Inc. It has annual revenues of $500K. While the organization is based in Pennsylvania, all of the tax filings are from PO boxes in Kansas. Foundation for a Christian Civilization is incorporated in New York (filing from KS).

I can’t prove it but believe there is a direct connection to the Knights of Columbus.

Whatever you call it, this entire organization is a hate group and should be listed as such.
