On the “mainstream” blog “First Things” there is an excellent article from a Maureen Mullarkey about the latest blunder of The Most Astonishing Hypocrite In Church History (TMAHICH) and, expanding from that, the clownesque, stupid, socialist, godless, self-centred boundless egotism of the man. Follow the link as long as you can. Kudos to Rorate for making us aware of the article.
In case the blog post be taken down, below are some of the pearls. Emphases mine.
Handwriting has been on the wall along the Viale Vaticano from the get-go. At the beginning of his pontificate, Francis revealed himself to be fastidiously attuned to image. He refused to give communion in public ceremonies lest he be photographed giving the sacrament to the wrong kind of sinner. So, when he agreed to pose between two well-known environmental activists and brandish an anti-fracking T-shirt, we believed what we saw.
It was a portentous image. Press toads hopped to their keyboards to correct the evidence of our lying eyes. Francis was neither for nor against fracking, you see. Nothing of the sort. He was simply using a photo-op to assert blameless solidarity with the victims of ecological injustice. (Both a decisive definition of such injustice and its particular victims went unspecified.)
If that restyling were true, then the more fool Francis. But Francis is not a fool. He is an ideologue and a meddlesome egoist. His clumsy intrusion into the Middle East and covert collusion with Obama over Cuba makes that clear. Megalomania sends him galloping into geopolitical—and now meteorological—thickets, sacralizing politics and bending theology to premature, intemperate policy endorsements.
Francis serves an environmentalist mindset that, unlike the traditional ethos of conservation, views man as a parasite (Western man in Francis’ marxisant variant) and understands wealth in pre-modern terms as a zero-sum game. It discards the West’s great discovery—realization that wealth can be created. The endgame is transfer of wealth from productive nations to unproductive ones.
Orthodox environmentalism resents human sovereignty over the earth we inhabit. It begrudges ingenuity in the transactions we invent with nature and with each other. Its radical form, which beckons Francis and Vatican academics, is atavistic, even animist. Discount the gospel gloss. What matters is the spectacle of the Church imitating the world by justifying political agendas based on still-contended data and half-baked Gramscian dogma.
First Thing is a “mainstream” Catholic presence, with all the problems of the case. The author of the blog post indicates an emerging trend: more and more of those who have been very reserved, or shall we say innocuous, towards Francis are losing patience in front of continuous provocations, of the obscene show of a man revealing himself more and more as clearly obsessed with his own persona, and utterly subversive in his own way of thinking and acting. I add to this an evident childishness in radicalising his rhetoric as his bogus science and economics (let alone theology) are criticised more and more widely.
It’s getting far too much even for the mainstream; far, far too much, and there are voices who say this loud and clear.
Enough. Enough. Enough.
Ideologue. Meddlesome egotist. Megalomaniac. Theology bender. Gramscian dogmatist.
Yep. Maureen Mullarkey got it about right.
Through of those things that happen when one deals with technology without understanding much of it, I had forgotten to put the page with the links to Pope Francis as “public” (it was in mode “private”); I could reach the page without any problem because I was “logged in” the blog and therefore the link worked perfectly for me, but the readers could not reach the “private” link and, for some reason, were sent to the other post published today.
I trust everything works fine now as follows:
1) Clicking the cover photo of Francis on the right hand side (below “Daily Offering to the Immaculate Heart of Mary”) you should be led directly to the page. You will see the usual photo of Francis and Ricca prominently displayed, a short introduction, and the list of links.
2) The same page should be reached by clicking at the top of the page, between “S. Padre Pio” and the “Online Breviary”.
I do not expect this to work on all browsers and platforms (there are often problems with links from mobile phone browsing apps), but I do expect it should work on desktop PCs.
Please let me know if and which problems occur.
If you look at the right hand side of the blog, where the “Stop the Heresy in Austria” photo used to be, you will now see the cover given by a faggot magazine in celebration of the Honorary (hopefully) Gay Pope. The pahe about the heresy in Austria – alas, now made somewhat obsolete by a worldwide heresy – is still accessible from the top of the page.
Clicking on the page will lead you to another page, where in excess of 25 links about Francis have been collected.
As per today, I have covered up to August 2013. Some fundamental milestones of this pontificate are already included: the “humbleness” propaganda, the populism and third-world-ism, the mocking of those who pray the Rosary, the obscene circus of the World Youth Day, the “who am I to judge?” and cover up of Ricca, and the appearance of the New Religion.
In the next several weeks, the collection of links will be integrated with posts more and more near to the present time. From that point, the list will be updated with new aspects of this pontificate.
I have tried to avoid repetitions, for example omitting the links to the many posts written concerning the man’s stunning hypocrisy. At the same time, I have not limited myself to the gravest scandals, as I thought it useful that the new visitors, particularly when new to a sane approach to this Pontificate, may get a rather comprehensive picture of the man.
Whilst it might be a couple of months before the link list is complete, I am of the opinion that what is online now already gives a rather accurate portrait of the man. I will profit of “dead times” to work on it, whilst trying to stay on top of current events in the meantime. In this way, the material is there whilst a big disruption is avoided.
It would be interesting not only for the more recent readers, but also for the older ones to click on the links and revisit the path that led us to the present point. I can say, not without satisfaction, that the posts also highlight my much more cautious approach at the beginning, as I did not want to rashly criticise the Pope in a massive way; cautious approach that then progressively gave way to a more and more incisive language as the scale of the devastation became gradually apparent.
If anyone of you (blogger or not) thinks the work useful, he may direct people he knows on the page.
Click away, then, if you so wish. Please also notice that abundant clicking will help these link to get more noticed by the web search engines, thus automatically attracting more people to a Traditionalist blog.
If you enjoy this blog, you will like to revisit the path we have made together in the time since that fateful evening in March 2013.
