The Perverts-are-not-fine reblog
Wise words from Michael Voris about adoption and why a child can’t be abused to satisfy the ego of perverts playing “normal”. It is in fact a telling sign of the times that a society completely obsessed with child abuse when it is an excuse to bash the Catholic Church doesn’t see child abuse in letting a poor little boy or girl grow up in a dysfunctional, sexually deviant environment of self-hatred and all-round bitchiness.
Then we wonder in disbelief how it could be that in the Eighties attraction for children was considered by so many – and so many progressive priests, it must be said, and homos, it must also be said – a minor problem, easily curable with appropriate attention and perhaps not even to be taken so seriously: because it was politically correct to think that way, that’s why.
A most interesting observation, particularly pleasing…

In the present situation, it is more than understandable that the fans of the Better Mass be worried about the effect this devastating, utterly disgraceful Pontificate will have on Summorum Pontificum.
Whilst I have forgotten my crystal ball at home again, I think a couple of reasonable assumptions can be made:
1) Bishop Francis will not dare to openly go against Summorum Pontificum: not whilst the Pontiff Emeritus is alive, not after he has died. A man clearly driven by vanity, the Bishop of Rome will not dare to take initiatives that would procure him a very vocal, very persistent and very painful opposition. Look at his actions, and realise the man accurately avoid every stance that would cause widespread opposition to the new born cult of Bishop Francis. Too many are the friends of the Tridentine Mass, for him to go and pick this particular fight. It must also be said that the Bishop lives in a liturgical and theological glasshouse, and certainly understands if he starts to throw stones at people who understand Liturgy and Theology he will be hurt, badly.
2) This does not mean the Bishop, being a 1a liturgical Philistine, will not do whatever he can to damage the cause of sound liturgy whilst avoiding the flak. I can well imagine that he will take care bishops of TLM dioceses are replaced, when the usual time comes, with other liturgical philistines, certain to provide an hostile environment for the TLM; with the obvious exception of those dioceses where a SSPX is within driving distance.
I cannot see the Bishop of Rome doing anything that makes him obviously unpopular, but I do believe he will do whatever he can to hush the effects of SP if he can do so without open confrontation.
The biggest safety for SP lies, if you ask me, in the robust presence of the SSPX. As long as they are strong and expanding, the enemies of the Tridentine Mass will have to be very careful, and Bishop Jorge's cult of Bishop Jorge will do the rest.
I might be wrong, of course. Time will tell.
The soon to be staged World Youth Day (an exercise of dubious morality in itself) will be another good example of the way Catholics the world over dumb themselves into the childish belief things are fine, because a lot of people gather together.
The V II Church has lost not only every desire for, but the notion itself of confrontation. When a message is propagated, it is a message “for something”, but never against someone. This would be considered Un-churchy, or perhaps simply not effeminate enough.
The crowds gathering in Brazil will hear the usual waffle: youth, the future, joy, peace, hope, joy, happiness, social justice, joy, “getting out of oneself”, celebration, joy and, most probably, more joy.
What will remain unsaid is the immense sterility of fuzzy feelings that do not translate in concrete action, nor will we hear a word about the toothlessness of churchmen unable to do anything else than “celebrate” and waffle about “joy” as if they were motivational speakers, or mental therapists. Nonsense about social justice and aiding and abetting of illegal immigration will, no doubt, play a very important role.
Brazil and Ireland, two Countries with strong Catholic roots, are about to introduce abortion legislation. As the Church is still powerful in these two Countries, already the fact such measures are discussed is ample demonstration of the tragic – wanted? – lack of effectiveness of their respective Church.
If in both these Countries the Church had kept a sound, healthy desire for confrontation with the world, such measures would not be even discussed, because to propose them would mean the political demise of everyone foolish enough to do so. If the Church had the old sound thinking (that a politician goes against the Church at his own peril), only fringe groups not interested in mainstream voters – and despised by them – would dare to defy her.
A Church able and willing to fight in a Catholic country is a Church that even dictators must reckon with, and no moderate politician worth his salt will openly defy. The defiance of a supposedly “Catholic” politician to Catholic rules already shows the Church in that country has been decaying for several years, preferring cowardly retreat to open confrontation.
Even in a Country with a sizeable Catholic minority, an assertive Church would inspire pure terror in every “moderate” politician: Britain with its 4.5 million Catholics and 1 million weekly churchgoers would spell death for every politician the bishops would decide to take in their sights until his political annihilation; and when the latter takes place it would be sufficient reason for everyone else to keep schtum. Imagine Cameron savagely attacked as a persecutor of Christian day in and day out from the more than thirty bishops in Britain: in less than two years he would be more embarrassing for the party than if he was a child rapist. To be seen as dead man walking means, for a politician, to be dead already. Everyone would do everything he can to avoid it. You make an example of one, you teach proper manners to countless others. Punirne uno per educarne cento.
Does any of this happen in Brazil, in Germany, in Austria, in Ireland? Does any politician put his career on the line, who dares to defy Catholic values? The answer to this very rhetorical question is the reason why Catholicism is on the defensive all over the West (including South America).
At the WYD, instead of proper confrontation brace yourself for more inane waffle, to which the Bishop of Rome will give his, as usual, inane contribution.
Peace here, social justice there, bla bla, joy, luv, bla bla, dialogue, bla, “spirit”, “celebration, bla, youth, bla, bla, & bla.
Weeks later, Brazil will have its abortion legislation in place.
