Macy's Fires Catholic Employee for Questioning Transgender Policy



Macy's Fires Catholic Employee for Questioning Transgender Policy

 Another Christian has fallen victim to the LGBT bully-machine raging its way across the United States.


Javier Chavez, a senior store detective at Macy’s in Flushing, New York, no longer has a job because he dared to question the retail outlet's new transgender bathroom policy.

Cathedral of the Madeleine

From a Homily by Pope Saint Gregory the Great

"When Mary Magdalen came to the tomb and did not find the Lord's body, she thought it had been taken away and so informed the disciples. After they came and saw the tomb, they too believed what Mary had told them. The text then says: “The disciples went back home,” and it adds: “but Mary wept and remained standing outside the tomb.”

We should reflect on Mary's attitude and the great love she felt for Christ, for though the disciples had left the tomb, she remained. She was still seeking the one she had not found, and while she sought she wept. Burning with the fire of love, she longed for him who she thought had been taken away. And so it happened that the woman who stayed behind to seek Christ was the only one to see him. For perseverance is essential to any good deed, as the voice of truth tell us: “Whoever perseveres to the end will be saved.”

"God is my heaven here below. I live with him, even when I am walking, we speak together without being interrupted by anyone. If you would know him enough, you would love him. If you would stay with him for one hour, you would know heaven on earth."
