Purple Prostitutes

New times, old rebellions.

Ah, the German Bishops. Always ready to fight against Catholicism. Clearly, they rank among Satan's most faithful allies.

You might remember the “survey” of some time ago; a survey which, if memory serves, was actually meant for priests, though the usual suspects encouraged their faithful to participate to the exercise and say what they find wrong in the Church's teaching, in a kind of orgy of democracy and populism.

Predictably, the results were that the astonishingly neglected – and arrogant their own part – German sheep either do not know important parts of the teaching, or consider it – wait for this – “heartless”, “unacceptable”, or the like.

You will, now, imagine these shameful but not unexpected findings would be the occasion for a loud mea culpa from the side of the shepherds, admitting that it is their most grievous fault that souls entrusted to their care may think that God is heartless, or, far more probably, are not even informed that Church rules concerning sexual morality are just not disposable, because they are from God. With which, actually, the discussion should come to an abrupt end.

And in fact, it being unthinkable that a Christian may deem God heartless and still call himself a Christian, the only explanation to such a brutal refusal of God's laws is that the sheep believe, and the shepherds allow them to believe, that these rules can and, indeed, must be changed.

God only will be able to look into the souls of the millions of confused non-Catholics who share such a thinking, and justly decide in every individual case when their guilt is worthy of hell and when the lack of proper teaching, or the bad example of their own shepherds, are bad enough to allow them to escape the ultimate punishment. But there can be no doubt in my mind that the bishops and priests themselves know perfectly well what the rules are and whence they come, and will have absolutely nowhere to hide when their day of reckoning comes.

A public condemnation of eternal Church rules as “heartless” – a condemnation clear enough, though thinly veiled behind the excuse of it being what the vox populi says – is something I had missed up to now, though this is probably merely due to my lack of attention. This bunch of idiots do not say “the people don't like and even harshly criticise the rules, so we must start a serious work of evangelisation because it's clear we have done everything wrong for decades”; no, they report to Rome what “the people” find “unacceptable”. They say: “Look, Francis: the sheep say the rules are heartless; therefore, they must be changed, or at least they must be “pastorally” raped until the sheep are halfway satisfied and keep paying the Kirchensteuer.

I expect this message to be sent with the usual subtle distinguos, and to be broadcast in a way that avoids danger for the bishops themselves. In the next months, methinks, we will hear these wolves reflect on how they can “more effectively” transmit Catholic teaching, whilst being “pastoral” regarding the grievances of the sheep. They find the teaching unacceptable, you see, so let's be “pastoral”. Still, the overall message will be clear enough, and this is how the German sheep will understand it: we, the good German pastors, are doing what we can to help you, dear sheep. Please, please keep paying the Kirchensteuer!

What a bunch of prostitutes in purple.

  1. A Catholic friend excitedly forwarded the survey to me and was all atwitter about it. I told her I found it unseemly and wouldn’t participate. She and others were floored.

  2. BTW, I understand that in 2017 there is to be a celebration, Vatican fueled, of the 500 Year Anniversary of the Reformation. The objectives, as I understand it, are to examine what we have learned from the Protestants. It is also the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima apparitions in 2017. I wonder which will be celebrated with more aplomb.

    • I heard about this, and I find it absolutely appalling. Could you imagine, say, Pope Gregory the Great ordering a celebration in honor of the bicentennial of the Arian heresy? It’s outrageous. Hopefully by then we have a Pope who recognizes that Protestantism is indeed a heresy.

    • I hope so.
      Don’t hold your breath.
      Unless we have a new conclave and are very, very lucky indeed.

  3. What is “heartless” is betraying the vows you made before God, your spouse and family. What is “heartless” is abandoning your spouse and destroying the lives of the children you brought into the world. What is “heartless” is being an emo narcissist who cares only about themselves and their “feelings” while trampling on Our Lord, His sacrament, your spouse and innocent children…not to mention your married friends who need support and faithfulness modeled to them as Catholics. And sadly the bishops care nothing of their sheep…only their money. If they cared for the sheep they would counsel them in their marriages and help them heal and find and follow Christ. God bless~
