The 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, which
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 sinner.

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, Canada!

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 Church.   

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 chilling crime.

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 business."

"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.

Going to Disney World? Bring a Blindfold: Homosexuals Overtake Park During Disney Sponsored "Gay Days"

8/13/2003  By 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 Disney shareholders.

“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. Mawyer said.

“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.

Gay Website Attacks Francis Cardinal George and Catholic Conference of Illinois in Battle Over Extending Legal Protection to Homosexuals

5/21/2003  By Karl Maurer

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.

Literally hundreds 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.

"Catholic Church 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 measure.

>"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 issue."

"Another feather 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.

>"Sexual activity between consenting adults of the same sex is not a question of or 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

Cardinal George has put a more conservative stamp on Chicago's Catholic Church since succeeding, in 1997, the late Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, who created in Chicago one of the country's strongest official outreach efforts to openly gay Catholics.

Response to "Gays Gain Victory"

by Allyson Smith

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 high school.

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.
