Enjoyable show of an atheist fag making the best publicity to Christianity and to heterosexuality.
“If you become a fag, you will be like him”, I picture passing-by mothers telling to their terrified sons.
Look at the coolness of the guy with the sign, how he makes the idiot (probably on drugs; perhaps he sold his shoes to buy them) get madder and madder.
Police managed to calm him down, though.
Alas, I hate to say this, but this is a suicide or a massacre waiting to happen.
He amuses the passers-by, though.
I hope Satan gives us more like him. The man is a walking testimonial for… us.
Without wanting to look like the one shooting on the Red Cross, I'd like to say two words about proper dressing in Church.
I do not find any problem in people who dress at Mass like characters from “Downton Abbey”. The gentlemen and ladies in question all dress invariably with the outmost propriety. This is something that should be welcomed, not criticised.
Now, if rich people dress richly at Mass, this shows they know how to properly honour the One Whom they are visiting. If poor people dress at Mass with timeless decorum, this should be praised, if possible, even more.
But those who should undoubtedly be praised most are the girls attending Mass in dresses reminding the one or other Australian woman of the girls in the “little house in the prairie”: they are a luminous ray of purity in a world in which sluttishness is the new decency.
Jokes aide, it is nothing less than astonishing in a world where many don't have a problem in showing up in church in shorts and/or flip flops, there should be a problem in dressing in Downton Abbey style.
The problem of all Anglo-Saxon societies is that they have forgotten the old Downton Abbey world, and they could use every bit of it.
Even if only to show The Lord due respect.
I have followed the Zimmerman trial like a well-informed European might do, and what I have seen was shocking. The decision to arrest and prosecute made more than 40 days after the event, basically to appease the mob; the main witness (on whom, as I understand, the entire prosecution was in fact based) unworthy of being taken seriously by a kindergarten audience; an entire deck of race cards played during and after the trial – often by Whites; astonishing country – and a huge pressure put on the jury not to be the “cause” of riots by doing what they think it's right.
All of this is blessedly absent from Continental Europe, and only mildly applicable to Britain. I can't imagine, and in fact am unable to remember, a trial being initiated, ceteris paribus, in any Western European country. Not even Britain.
Why is that? Because in European Countries prosecution is not dependent from the whim of the mob.
As a European, one can only look in disbelief at a trial which, it appears to me, the prosecutors felt at some point obliged to put in motion – well knowing the probability of conviction was very thin – because of mob pressure. One is reminded of the witch trial in the famous Monthy Phyton movie. None of this would have happened in Europe: not the trial, not the shameless racial spectacles applied to every detail of it, not the pressure on the jurors. From our perspective, poor George Zimmerman was the sacrificial lamb of a deeply flawed legal system, which positively encourages senseless prosecutions so that the mob may be appeased, at least for the moment. The widely-drummed possibility of riots in case of a certain decision was also beyond disgusting, and shows not only the willingness of Black activists to use the implied threat, but also the rapacious attitude of the press, not thinking twice before evoking ghosts which must, at some point, become very real.
As I followed the trial, I wondered whether the obvious flaws of the system did not play a role in the priest abuse scandal. When prosecutions are determined from the mood of the mob, what prevents a flood of prosecutions against priests being initiated merely to let the elected prosecutors look good? I have read of people accusing long deceased priests of sexual misconduct, sixty or seventy years after the fact, and found it astonishing anyone coming out with such accusations would be taken seriously for a moment. Heck, in civilised countries like Italy you have statute of limitation (if memory serves, 20 or maximum 25 years) even for murder, and in my time crimes against humanity were the only ones exempted from it.
If a trial like George Zimmerman's could take place, which trial couldn't? If trials are initiated because a certain interest group feels victimised, how many will ride this train in the hope of easy money? If a person can be accused of misconduct thirty years after his death, because a solvent Diocese can be made to pay, what will stop a wave of entirely invented accusations? How is it that in countries with non mob-dependent prosecution offices – and where the employer cannot be made liable for the criminal offence of the employee – like Italy and Germany the scale of the problem is a tiny fraction of what has happened in the US? Do Italians and Germans not care for justice? Are their legal systems deeply flawed? Or is it rather so, that these legal systems are not easily manipulated by those trying to make a quick buck, and completely closed to exploitation by pressure groups?
And by the way, is there another country on earth where the President intervenes in an ongoing trial and says if he had a child, he would be like the deceased? What madness is that? How can this be accepted of anyone with a public office, much less the one with the supreme office? If the deceased and the President had been both Whites, and the accused Black, what would have happened?
Heavens, the most powerful Country on earth has a joke of a justice system. Is it a surprise the rich Catholic dioceses of this country are targeted?
P.s. a word to the wise: this is not about Zimmerman's trial per se. Whinings of one-legged, bleeding heart, “human rights” lesbians will be culled without mercy.
“Today…we have fallen into the hypocritical attitude of the priest and of the servant of the altar that Jesus speaks about in the parable of the Good Samaritan: We look upon the brother half dead by the roadside, perhaps we think ‘poor guy’, and we continue on our way, it’s none of our business; and we feel fine with this. We feel at peace with this, we feel fine!”
Bishop Francis, Lampedusa, 2013
“God always wants this: mercy, and not [people] going around condemning everyone.”
Bishop Francis, Castel Gandolfo, 2013.
The bishop who shoots in the crowd (and it’s a very large crowd) saying how hypocritical we all are, is the same bishop who then says we must not “go around condemning everyone”.
The bishop is in love with soundbites, but I am more and more persuaded that his biggest love story is with himself and his own “humbleness”.
For the moment, he is so humble that he humbly gives another two slaps to his predecessors, refusing to reside for the summer in the beautiful summer palace at Castel Gandolfo and being driven there for the day in a Ford Focus. Ah, these Renaissance Princes with their custom-made Mercedes, how un-humble they were.
He is so obsessed with appearing humble that he has not greeted the people in Castel Gandolfo from the window in the upper floor, but from the main gate. So almost no one could see him, but I am sure he felt good with himself.
In the meantime, sodomy advances all over the West.
The bishop is mainly concerned with not condemning.
The Humbleness Reblog
The first mark of the wise man is that he pays attention before he opens his mouth, and does not talk of things he doesn’t know. Even those who are not wise will, if they have some humbleness and fear of the Lord, at least pay attention that they do not give scandal.
Our Pope Francis does not have a perfect command of Dante’s language, though one must say he knows it well. He wants to have a public Mass and a homily every day. This is a lot of work, but is perfectly doable if one knows what he says, let alone has at his disposal the human resources available to a Pope.
Pope Francis does not want to publish the homilies in their entirety, because they are supposed to be spontaneous and informal (and, cough, the rambling must be atrocious); but he does not want to keep them…
