The always despicable National UnCatholic Reprobate magazine has a particularly despicable article about a Catholic priest who, as they say, “came out” as a homosexual. I spare you the whiny details, which I am sure you can imagine without reading.
Some bits of sound thinking help you to answer to your friends or relative or acquaintances or work colleagues when trying to inflict on you the satanical, sugary rubbish.
1. Born The Right Way
God does not “do” perversion. He merely allows it. It is absurd to think that God would cause a person to be “born that way”. Everyone is born the right way.
2. Homo By Choice
Everyone is born straight. However, some of them allow themselves to fall into the (disgusting, besides damning) pit of perversion. How do they do it? By (repeatedly) assenting to the disordered thoughts emerging in their mind. It is, in this perspective, not relevant and no excuse that some may live in an environment more conducive to such perversion: say, because “adopted” by inverted “parents”, or the victim of sexual abuse when little. There is never an excuse for what in the end must perforce be a willed choice. People don't pervert themselves overnight. Such a change in one's mind and way of thinking must perforce be the result of countless episodes of assent to what one knows to be wrong.
3. Homos Cannot Be Priests
The very idea that an inverted man may be fit for the priesthood speaks volumes about the decay of elementary Catholic (nay: Christian!) thinking in the West. A man called to celibacy and chastity should do so when, clearly, Satan already has such a hold on him that he can pervert him in the very roots of his being. This fake Christianity clearly does not believe in God, and reduces the priest's role to a purveyor of sugary common places and trite social justice whining. That the hands of a pervert should be allowed to confect, elevate and hold the Host is something only people not believing in Transubstantiation could even imagine.
4. Homosexual Priests Are A Major Source Of Priest Pedophilia
The first John Jay Report and common sense observation of the reality around us tell us a simple fact: that whilst not all homos are paedos, a disproportionate number of paedos are homos. Not only has the first John Jay Report staggering figures about that (Google around), but this is also evident from the daily observation of the cases that make headlines. Normal, straight men are, dinner as they my be, just not of that sort. They like tits, you know.
5. God Cannot Have Been Wrong
The outlandish idea that homosexuality be anything from what the Church has always believed it is (a perversion so hideous and horrible that even the name was shunned) equates to the belief that God was wrong for 2000 years and starts, encouraged by leftists and atheists the world over, to see reason just now. But if God can change His mind, then He is not perfect, which means that He is no God, which means that there is no God. The contrary is true: there is a God, this God is perfect and immutable, and Truth is just as immutable as its Creator. What was believed since the start must be believed to the end.
I hope that, even in these disgraceful times, this despicable individual is kicked out, defrocked, humiliated and left without any financial support; which would still be a very mild punishment for the open rebellion to that God to whom he has consecrated his life.
In a show of shameless, but attention-addicted cowardice that really makes me want to vomit, the two surviving Dubia Cardinals keep giving virtue-signalling interviews whilst obviously, publicly refusing to do their job.
In the present situation, no Cardinal is authorised to think, even for a second, that he has done his job if he limits himself to vaguely whine about the Church going in the wrong direction. It’s not that we don’t know where the problem comes from.
In the case of Brandmueller and Burke, the silence is even more scandalous – and the constant, virtue-signalling interview-giving even more disgusting – because by issuing the Dubia they have so clearly decided to publicly wet their lips that the subsequent refusal to whistle for now more than 450 days beggars belief. When the four Cardinals issued their Dubia, not even I (never a fan of V II prelates) thought that they could be not only so cowardly that they do nothing afterwards, but also such attention-seeking hypocrites that they keep giving interviews and play the good prelate as if we could not see what cowards they are.
Let me say it once again: these people are Bishops and Cardinals. Martyrdom (and I mean the real one) must be in their thoughts every day of the year and every hour of the day.
All they are risking is the loss of their splendid apartments and offices, of their extremely pampered living and, possibly most importantly at that age, of the honours and prestige coming with their extremely elevated rank. Even this is, apparently, too much to ask of a Cardinal these days.
Vatican II has destroyed almost every sense of what a prelate is and should be. It has replaced it with blind allegiance to the hierarchy and excuse-making that would never apply to any politician. I cringe at the thought of how many very, very dumb faithful keep making excuses for these hirelings, from the immortal “what can they do?” (they can denounce heresy; that’s what they can do, Sherlock…) to the usual fantasies about cunning plans and strategies so clever that no one can see there is one in the first place.
Cardinals Brandmueller and Burke should have at least the decency to shut up, and spend more time reflecting on the terrible price they will be called to pay when they die.
The narrow, but clear defeat in Alabama forces yours truly to write a couple of considerations about how this could happen. I see, in the main, four causes (actually three and a half), which I will proceed to explain in order or importance.
1. The Sanctimonious Judases
Slandering a candidate with baseless accusations has evidently paid. Hundreds of thousands of white conservative voters thought it better to stay home as their precious feelings were hurt by fake accusations of alleged behaviour of more than 40 years ago. It really speaks against universal suffrage that so many would be so dumb.
With an extremely important seat in play for tax reform, judicial appointments, the Wall and the killing of Obamacare, they have chosen to feel good with themselves instead. I hope their Obamacare premiums will skyrocket next year, the year thereafter and in 2020 before (as I understand) the seat last won by Sessions in 2014 becomes available again. Also, pretty likely, no tax cuts. One can hope this is still not the end of sensible judicial appointments (Gorsuch was appointed with the vote of several Democratic Senators), but it does not make future appointments easier for sure. Congratulations, you idiots.
The lesson to be drawn here is one I have already mentioned in the past: if your candidate promises to be a solid, dependable pro-life, pro-Trump, pro-Wall candidate in 2018 you vote for him even if he used to be a Black Panther member in 1972. It beggars belief that the slaughter on one million children a year should not be made one step nearer to termination because of – in this case: alleged; but it's truly not relevant – the desire of people who profess to be conservative and pro-life to feel good with themselves.
If Moore had been elected it would have been a win-win. Either he is investigated or not. If he is investigated and removed, there is all the time to find a suitable replacement. The seat remains Republican at all times. Now the seat is occupied by a chap who wants the right to abortion up to the moment of birth, a position more extreme than even Planned Parenthood's.
Again: congratulations, you idiots. May God forgive you.
I am not sure He will.
2. The Republican Establishment
Not much to say on this. The obscene spectacle of the top ranks amongs Senate Republicans asking for Moore to stand aside – before tepidly supporting him, the cowardly mongrels, when it looked likely he would win – makes clear once again that Mitch McConnell & Co. are the enemy number one of the pro-life, pro-2nd amendment, pro-tax reform, pro-wall, anti-Obamacare agenda. They do not care how much losses it costs if it helps them to expunge Trump from their ranks. McConnell is working for the opposition day in and day out. He should be the first to be made to go, then he has not only managed to lose twice, but he plans to lose whenever a victory would benefit Trump. The so-called GOP is infested by little Grima Wormtongues, working for the enemy with a brazenness I have never seen in Italy, Germany, or England.
3. Donald Trump
Like McConnell, Trump has lost twice. In his case, he has lost because he wanted to be prudent, and has tried to play Machiavelli : if Moore wins, I have supported him; if he loses, I will say Luther Strange would have been the right pick.
This is a very dangerous game, because Trump will now find it more difficult to push his agenda in the Senate. The very narrow defeat makes the wound more painful.
Trump should have travelled to Alabama several times, and he should have thrown his considerable popularity in the game, instead of limiting himself to a handful of tweets and statements. He should have been photographed with Moore for all the planet to see, causing Democratic outrage and a huge Wave Of Deplorables. He should have considered this the priority number one of his work in the weeks leading to the election. He should have campaigned for him with the message that it is important to keep the Senate inRepublican hands, and any – improbable – ground for resignation can be handled later. His support for Moore was clear, but not enthusiastic. Not anywhere near a Trump Train.
Trump's victory in 2016 does not mean that the game is won. The mobilisation must be pursued again and again. It beggars belief that the Democrats could get the Black vote out in record numbers, whilst the Deplorables stayed home. It is necessary to awaken the same spirit of 2016 every single time, and Trump must be a vital part of it.
3.5 Roy Moore
One does not really want to blame the guy for being himself. But I read things that I thought were from another century, like his dislike for big TV campaigns and massive spending, as if he would win just because he prays. Ground game and TV campaigns are important, and they cost a lot of money. It is neither dirty nor dishonourable to use them. God helps those who help themselves.
This is a blow, but not a KO. However, the failure to energise the voters in November 2018 could end up with Trump losing both House and Senate, just – if memory serves – like Clinton in 1994. The Democrats have a far better ground game, and without a great Deplorables' Rise next year this will have a great impact on the final result.
Next year's battle must be on two fronts: the Primaries to weed out as many RINOs as reasonably practicable, and the elections to keep both House and Senate in Republican hands and the least possible number of RINOs.
This was a blow, but I would still not want to be the other side. However, it goes to show how easy it is to squander even the most beautiful of pacific popular uprisings.
Oh, the irony! The pope who, more than anyone else, seeks approval among the people is the one who is most ignored by Catholics, non-Catholics and… tourists alike!
The attendance figures from 2013 to 2015 are here, and they are shocking. The figures shop a drop almost as big as the drop in donation for the Clinton foundations. The people of the peripheries just can’t stand this man.
From 50,000 to 16,000 in two short years until 2015 (with the novelty effect built-in at least in the 2013 figures) already speak a clear language. The figures for 2016 are told to be around 10,000, only 20% of the first Francisyear. This 2017 which now goes to an end was very probably even worse.
No one is interested in a Pope who “doesn’t pope”. It’s full of comedians on TV and they at least are funny. A clown with a dour face and a hypocrisy that can be smelled one mile away is of no interest but to those who go for circus attractions and freak shows. Heck, by the numbers of tourists visiting Rome at pretty much every time of the year, one wonders how the figures can be so low.
But then one knows Francis, so this is par for the course.
It is, perhaps, fitting to add my two cents to what has already been written about Pope “Evil Clown” Francis approving a modified version of the Our Father for the poor French.
As pretty much always, the problem with Francis is that he does not believe in God. Not believing in God, he thinks that the church is a purely human construct. He also clearly believes that this human construct has done pretty much everything wrong before electing him Pope. Therefore, he proceeds to “improve” on her by proposing alternative teachings, and trying to shape her in the image and likeness of the only god he recognises: comrade Jorge Bergoglio. He did so already concerning communion, marriage, homosexuality, war, poverty, climate change, death penalty, illegal immigration, and countless other matters. Again: it is clear that this man thinks that the Church did everything wrong, from her very beginnings, until he appeared on the scene. This is the clear mark of the atheist.
It is, therefore, no surprise that not even the Our Lord should be spared by this unspeakable scoundrel.
Other have entered into more or less erudite conversations about the exegesis of the word “temptation” and the ways in which ne nos inducas in tentationem can be understood. I frankly don’t care.
What was good for my grandma, and for her grandma before her, is good enough for me. What the Church and the centuries have hallowed, no dirty Argentinian scoundrel is allowed to manipulate. The very idea that the Church may have got the very words of our Lord wrong for centuries is the most obvious evidence of unbelief that can be given.
Like every unbeliever, Francis hides behind various very small and very crooked fingers: historical “research”, literal meaning which “might be misunderstood” (heavens, what a cretin…), a feigned desire to do good, and such like rubbish. This is what every fake believer does as he discusses with you about what “research” tell them about, say, deaconesses, or the role of the priest, or the church’s attitude towards adulterers or homos. Fake research and fake science are always the refuge of true unbelievers.
A Pope tampering with the English translation of dogmatic statements accepted for many generations is a Pope showing that he simply does not believe that the Church has any function at all, and that God would allow the entire Western Christianity to be misled concerning his words; he shows, therefore, that he does not believe in God, as it is absurd to believe in such a mickey mouse god: clearly plagued with communication problems, not even able to make himself understood when he talks to his creatures, and obviously unable to enforce the most elementary standards concerning himself.
Pope Francis is clearly a dyed-in-the-wool atheist, and an extremely arrogant man. But he is also extremely stupid, as he is clearly unable to understand how his vanity and arrogance expose him as a boor, and a miserable ass dressed in white, for everyone who has any trace of sensus catholicus left in him.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
please free us from this scourge.
