Choose Your Blogs Carefully

The historical events of the last days are also, in the most brutal manner, the demonstration of the utter uselessness or outright help for the Devil of many blogs written by people who have the guts to call themselves “Catholics”.

As the Relatio post disceptationem was made public, the usual suspects were running to explain to a stunned Catholicism that it was business as usual, and there was, really, nothing to be worried about; just the usual nutcases screaming, because that’s what they do.

Pick your “c”atholics blog/publication and go read – if it’s still there – what was written on it on the 13 and 14 October. Weigel insisted in telling us nothing has happened, as the bishops all over the world were terrified and extremely angry – but he didn’t know that yet, you see -. The “Gluttoness” ‘ main concern was whether the “gays” will not be offended (yes: they, the “gays”) at the language used in the text. The “Catholic Herald” explained to us, in a true spirit of prostitution, that Francis’ reform still had a long way to go before being completed; the same outlet, on the same day, dared to publish the infamous “God’s Laws are now obsolete” homily report in which the Pope’s blasphemy, without precedent in the history of Christianity, is reported as if it were a piece of news from the Congress of the Labour Party; nor have I seen a single word of criticism of the Unholy Blasphemer afterwards.

Interestingly, after the mess had happened the unCatholic Herald has an article of a priest, lamenting… the English translation! Lord, give me strength!

I did not havevthevtime to read some of the other usual suspects, but I can’t imagine those I have missed, – the likes of Akin and Shea – were above their usual, obscenely low standard.

In short: whilst Rome was in great danger of burning, “institutional” Catholic sites were telling us fire is very modern, or what the church always had anyway, or awfully overrated as a danger.

These are, my friends, the best allies of Satan; because whilst obvious enemies of Catholics are heavily discounted by everyone who cares, these people deceive – to a point, of course – those who, at least in principle, care for their Salvation.

Last week has shown that there is no amount of blasphemy or heresy from the Pope that these people would not sell as what the Church has always said, business as usual, some kind of strange but ultimately harmless choice of words, or something to celebrate altogether. Unless, it is, for the fact that the “gays” might feel offended (they; the “gays”) at the wording.

In a rather striking contrast, let me mention the blogs which – besides your humble correspondent – I have seen with immense consolation shooting from all cannons before the extent of the bishop’s rebellion was known: in no particular order John Smeaton, Rorate Caeli, the “Remnant”, “Harvesting the Fruit of the V II”, and the Traditionalist Catholic Priest were shooting like it’s The Alamo with no regard whatsoever for what the world was saying, how the media would have reacted, whether the bishops would have caved in to Pope Allende, and whether we would have woken up the day after a planet of happy heretics.

What a joy, to see these brave men and women of God running to the ramparts without knowing or caring how many Uruk-Hai are below, and without knowing whether reinforcement would ever arrive; ready ten thousand times to be called bigots by a stupid world, than sellouts by Christ.

There were, certainly, many more blogs who had these kind of reaction, though I cannot read or even mention them all. But certainly what could be noticed is that the simple laymen, the “one man and one laptop” efforts were, together with the established voices of Tradition, light years in front of the cowardly commercial, “allegedly-middle-of-the-way”, “look-how-cool-Catholicism-is” blogs a la “Patheos”, and utterly prostituted outlets a la “Catholic Herald”.

Speaking of which, I wonder whether heads will now roll over there; probably not as long as TMAHICH is Pope. Still, those who run that miserable rag must get in hot water as long as Francis is gone, as they have showed to the entire Catholic world that they are not better than those who run the “Tablet”; in fact, they merely have different target readers.

As to “Patheos”, it would be easy to say that everyone who goes there for spiritual nourishment is beyond repair anyway; but perhaps some of them are not beyond repair, they just know not what they are doing. For them, this truly is the time to open their big blue eyes and look at the ugly truth straight in the eyes: even if Francis declared that he is the False Prophet, the “Patheos” sites would be his first and more vocal supporters.

I have been struggling, these last days, to decide who was worst than the “Gluttoness”. I am afraid the biscuit goes to a brand new Patheos blog, written by a nun of sort, who proceeded to explain to us that she lined for communion when she was an atheist, isn’t sure how exactly bad this is, but if she has been told she cannot receive she would have been oh so offended that she would have gone away for good, evidently not becoming the wonderful religious sister she now is.

These are the sisters, the bloggers, and the alleged Catholics you find on Patheos.

Choose your blogs carefully. Your immortal soul may well be at stake.

  1. “Smooth it Away” Shea is always in the running for top dog of the Pollyannas. He’s also a nasty mutt. One must always carry a rolled up newspaper ready for a correction directed at his snout.

  2. “written by a nun of sort, who proceeded to explain to us that she lined for communion when she was an atheist, isn’t sure how exactly bad this is, but if she has been told she cannot receive she would have been oh so offended that she would have gone away for good, evidently not becoming the wonderful religious sister she now is.”

    So in other words, if she had not been able to go up to Jesus and beat Him to a pulp while He was here on Earth, she would not follow Him? How much more narcissistic can you get? If she’s a nun…a true bride of Christ…then I’m a unicorn. How utterly blind and self absorbed are these people? Emo addicts and devoid of brain or the ability to think about others.

    If someone had refused communion to me while I was a knowing practical atheist I would have had RESPECT for the Church…not been “offended” and never show back up. Again, the narcissism here is obscene.

    God bless you for being one of the many cannons shot at Satan during this debacle of a “Nod to Sin”, Mundy:+)

    • Obscene.
      That’s why she writes for Patheos.
      I am surprised she can’t sing.
      Thank you for the flowers, by the way.
      I did put some extra hours. I am scared of judgment (something you won’t find much among the “Gud is Luv” types), and I thought this is the way to put some deposit into my Purgatory Savings Account.
      The beauty of it all is that if anyone thinks I am too heavy-handed he does not have to read me, so we are all happy…

  3. I avoid Patheos like the plague that it is.

  4. « … shooting from all cannons before the extent of the bishop’s rebellion was known: in no particular order John Smeaton, Rorate Caeli, the “Remnant”, “Harvesting the Fruit of the V II”, and the Traditionalist Catholic Priest were shooting like it’s The Alamo* with no regard whatsoever for what the world was saying … »

    who is in the frontline of this battle. And please, please, don’t tell me that you don’t understand German, I wouldn’t believe you, as your « A shrill voice interrupts. “Das ist unerhoert! Unbegreiflich! Voellig unmachbar! Kommt gar nicht in Frage! Was geht Ihnen durch den Kopf, junger Mann?? (very high pitched now, almost hysterical) Sind Sie verrueckt geworden?? Das ist Scheisse! Scheisse! Scheisse!” It is Cardinal Kasper. » This is a masterpiece of German culture ! I couldn’t do any better !! (It’s a compliment, I’m sure you got it !)

    * And please don’t forget that there is not only Fort Alamo, there is also El Alamein, with our great Fox of the Desert, the General Rommel !!!

    • Yes, I was talking of the blogs I had read myself.
      It’s great to know there are many great blogs around.
      By the by, Rommel was one of my greatest heroes when I was a child.
      Always remained, always will be.
      He was a great fan of Italian soldiery, by the way.

  5. Would like to give a shout out to the delightful and orthodox Catholic Collar and Tie blog. Such lucidity in serene tones emanates from that blog. I can almost smell roses when I am reading it.

  6. And can The Black Biretta’s proposition that there is no need for “cynicis about the Synod, really mean what is seems to??!!

  7. Shea was the only one I saw (by accident) and he was saying that people who were yelling about the relatio were ‘reactionaries’. This was before the bishops started saying it was bad mind you. I didn’t see him retract anything he said either. He said that the homosexual paragraph was totally fine bc St. James wrote that temptations are good. Patheos is full of psychopaths.

    • I never understood why the man converted to Catholicism.
      He was always a faithful of his own, creepy religion. But why call it Catholicism escapes me.
      More book sales?
