I never understood – it must be my lack of experience of the real thing – why the comparison of the Church as a “field hospital” should be something leading to heresy, or perversion of doctrine through other and more Jesuitical ways.
What is a field hospital there for? To heal the sick and wounded, I would say.
I imagine that in a field hospital no one looks to which army the wounded belongs: friend or enemy, the field hospital accepts everyone. Very fine. Beautiful. Utterly Christian.
But then, the absolute priority of the doctors in the field hospital is, I think, saving the patients’ life. If, to do this, very unpleasant things are necessary – things that would be unthinkable in less serious circumstances, like amputations – then the doctors go on and…

Francis is stupid. He has the brain of a slow man without an education ranting at the pub. Only add microphones, and journalists.
Among the many senseless statements of the Pope there is the – recently repeated in Turin, but not new at all – sweeping condemnation of the arms industry.
Firstly, the common sense: to condemn weapons as evil is as intelligent as to condemn Nutella, or kitchen knives, as evil. Yes, you can kill yourself with Nutella: but this makes you stupid, not Nutella evil. Yes, you can butcher people with kitchen knives, but this makes you, not the knife, evil.
But let us look at the Gospel:
Jesus states he has not come to bring peace, he has come with a sword. (Mt 10:34). It is clear even to my cat that the sword here has an extremely positive connotation. The sword is, symbolically, what Christ brings to us.
Poor Francis is and old nincompoop. If he weren’t, he would notice the huge statue of St. Michael the Archangel at the top of Castel Sant’Angelo. Brandishing a huge sword.
Jesus also ordered the Disciples to buy swords, at the cost of having to sell their cloak if needs be.
But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one
It is obvious even to my cat that Jesus does not have anything against either weapons used as self-defence, or entire armies.
He actually even speaks of twelve legions of angels, directly referring to the Roman military structures (Mt 26:52). He could have said great multitudes, he said twelve legions. You are supposed to think of a huge, well-ordered, perfectly efficient, absolutely deadly army of angels, not simply “a great quantity of them”.
I have long thought alcohol may play a role in the ramblings of this man, and I have not changed my mind. However, when the man goes so far as to write an encyclical full of extremist rants and third-hand, fully discredited fake “science” you know that he does not need fernet to talk like an idiot, because in his sober state he fulfills the requirements brilliantly.
By the by, I have read a beautiful article about the sophisticated weapons of the Swiss Guard (The site? Arms.com! Oh the irony!) , and their training not only with modern firearms, but even with the old ones. These are people who could hack an aggressor with their own short swords, or make of them “aggressor on a stick” with their pikes, in no times. Using… what, again?
Summa summarum? If you ask Francis, Jesus was evil. Armies protecting our freedom and property are evil. Those who protect Francis himself are evil. Those who sold weapons to all of the above mentioned are evil.
But Francis, who profits of the very weapons defending him; he is, as you all all know, humble and good.
In these astonishing times, never forget that we have the most wonderful weapon at our disposal. A weapon of whose power we are, most of the time, only dimly aware.
Pray the Rosary! Pray the Rosary! Pray the Rosary!
Don't delay anymore. These are no times for postponements.
Take your place on the barricades and use the wonderful weapon the Blessed Virgin has given us.
Don't postpone anymore. The house is burning. All hands must carry water now.
Don't postpone anymore. Start praying the rosary every day, today.
Yes, it means you.
If you read my several posts about Predestination and Reprobation you will see that God, Who is omnipotent and omniscient, has decreed from all eternity that certain people – the Reprobates – will willingly merit hell for themselves, whilst others – the Elect – will willingly cooperate with His grace in a way that merits them, normally after the necessary purification in Purgatory, heaven.
In a mysterious, but not incomprehensible way, the system works in both directions. God has decreed, and I willingly do what he has decreed I would be doing.
How does this apply to the dark times in which we are living? In my eyes, it applies to it in a very simple way: that when the clergy and the laymen betray God, He punishes not only the generation in question, but also sends them an awful lot of Reprobates, so that the sins of the fathers shall be visited upon the sons. I am, obviously, talking of great numbers here; not of your aunt Dahlia who, I am sure, is quite all right.
The generation who willingly decided that abortion is not only fine, but a right to be protected will be punished – inter alia – from knowing, in hell, that their children rot in hell with them forever. The sin of the fathers are – collectively speaking – visited upon the sons. Those who treat “luv” (not a real love, of course; a perverted, monstrous caricature of it) as if it were God will pay a price for their blasphemy commensurate to the rank of the One they have offended.
More in general it is, in my eyes, very fair to say that even among the baptised Catholics not all generations have the same amount of Reprobates. How can anyone with some logic think that Satan will have the same harvest from the baptised Catholics born in, say, 1910, 1950 and 1990? If this were the case, it would make no difference – and it would make, in the end, utterly irrelevant – if a generation has good priests and strong faith, or not. No. In the average, is stands to reason that the one born in 1910 is much more likely to have a healthy fear of the Lord than the one born in 1940, and the one born in 1940 is more likely to be at least disgusted by sexual perversion, and possibly fully aware of how sodomy offends God, than the one born in 1970 by people who, even if they still had their children baptised, did not care a straw for anything else than their own, extremely convenient moral compass. Following the same logic, it is not surprising at all that many of the children born in 2010 are not baptised at all.
We live, very clearly, in a generation of Reprobates; now arrived at the adult stage of their existence and thinking and acting like perfect heathens, feeling – probably, more than the heathens of pre-Christian times did – perfectly fine with themselves in the process.
No generation of evil people was so sanctimoniously persuaded of their own saintliness than this one; very probably, not even the Sodomites themselves. This, if nothing else, gives you the scale of the horrible tragedy that is unraveling under our very eyes.
A reckless generation chose abortion and mass contraception. In time, God sent them what their abortion and contraception were calling for: an enormous mass of reprobates as children, who then paved the way for even worse evil, and even worse suffering in hell, for the generation after them. This vicious circle will go on until the Lord, in His Mercy and Justice, decides that the wicked have been punished enough and, from another point of view, enough wicked have been punished. At that point, sanity will be restored and the newly sent Elect will take care that things are put right.
No generation was, of course, exempt from sin. But I fail to detect in history another example of such a mass abandonment of a Christian Truth already revealed. What we are living is, compared to the French or the October Revolution, less cruent in blood shed, but so much vaster in scale. It is as if the Lord had decided that if the Christian West wants to nuke itself, it should be allowed to do so and enjoy the nuclear fallout to the end.
We have to live in the age of the nuclear self-destruction of the very soul of the Western world, and will have to go through the fallout as long as the Lord in His Mercy decides we should do do. But at some point, we will be called, and sorted among the many Reprobates or the, most certainly, much smaller number of the Elect.
Let us work every day, in the middle of this nuclear wasteland, so that, when our day comes, we are called among the second.
Confutatis maledictis, flammis acribus addictis, voca me cum benedictis.
Pope Francis’ just released disgraceful encyclical has, among its extremely numerous vices (see an excerpt of them in my Francis Papers page above, just scroll to the bottom), the one of being strongly influenced by atheist thinking.
Worse (even) than this, Francis has already given more than a hint (actually, he has screamed from the rooftops, only not in encyclicals yet) that an atheist can be saved by following his conscience (see here and here).
The Bishop of Rome, unhappily reigning, wants you to believe and profess that atheism can be perfectly fine not only for salvation, but as a general way of thinking. Francis has no qualms whatsoever with people claiming to be “good without God”; he even asks them to send him “good thoughts”, or the like (alas, this time no link…).
This is today, in the Age of Sodomy.
But how was it before?
We only need to look back 65 years and we find a wonderful encyclical of the great Pope Pius XII, Anni Sacri. The encyclical is very pithy and can be read in its entirety in a short time, so I encourage you to do it. There are no great discussions about why the atheist is logically wrong (remember when Mr Smith bought a new watch?). The letter is entirely devoted to the necessity for the bishops to fight against the atheist mentality within the families and in the public sphere.
The Pastor Angelicus would not even dream of telling you that an atheist can be saved in his atheism, is he “follows his conscience”. This is the thinking of an atheist or a very confused deist. he says instead (emphases mine):
As you know, once religion is taken away there cannot be a well ordered, well regulated society. In this point lies the urgency to spur on priests under your guidance in order that, especially during the Holy Year, they spare no efforts so that souls entrusted to them, with their false prejudices and erroneous convictions cast aside, and hatreds and discords settled, may nourish themselves on the teachings of the Gospel and thus participate in Christian life so as to hasten the desired renewal of morals.
You can’t found a societal order on anything else than Christ. Those who think otherwise must change their mind. Unless they get to understand the truth, they will be spiritual starving individuals.
There are other very interesting points touched in the encyclical, that are – that cannot but be – completely opposite to Francis’ Castroite Weltanschauung. But this here seemed to me the most relevant: those who Francis considers good guys helping him to do what is really important (not Christ, no; redistribute income and have a world government that tries to prevent you from using the aircon) are to the Pope of Fatima a veritable poison of society, one that every bishop and priest must do his best to extirpate.
How the times have changed. What a sad joke the papacy has become.
Those in the title are the words of Bobby Jindal only hours after the scandalous Obergefell vs Hodges decision. The link is here
I do not think Mr Jindal’s campaign will go very far. But I can only praise a man who, in the current tsunami of perverted wannabe feel-good feelings, has the guts to say a couple of things right.
I am also curious to see how the like of Mr Santorum will now try (perhaps not just now, but very soon), to let you forget the topic and use arguments like “oh well, it’s decided now, we must accept the fait accompli”.
In the battle before us, some brave voices are already being heard.
Marriage between a man and a woman was established by God. Don’t let any pervert, or his friend, tell you otherwise.
St. Augustine refuses the book of vices. Francis would ask whether they are committed in conscience.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Mk 16: 15-16.
Given that – and this is fundamental – God’s mercy has no limits if he who asks for mercy does so in contrition and with a sincere heart, the issue for those who do not believe in God is in obeying their own conscience. In fact, listening and obeying it, means deciding about what is perceived to be good or to be evil. The goodness or the wickedness of our behavior depends on this decision.
Pope Francis, Letter to Eugenio Scalfari.
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you…

On June 22nd the Church remembered St. Thomas More, a martyr of the faith.
Thomas More is particularly relevant to our time because besides being a scholar, philosopher and author he was a highly successful and influential politician. Born in a wealthy family, he rose to the top of the English political establishment through intelligence, competence and honesty. These virtues were also what put a premature end to his life, as he preferred to die on the scaffold rather than compromise his allegiance to Jesus and His Church.
Let us reflect on this: he who had become the most powerful man in King Henry’s government, respected and privileged, wealthy to the point of having his own zoo, freely chooses to die rather than adjust his beliefs to the political climate of the times. Granted, he had always been an extremely religious person – and had played with the idea of…

I can see the time come when WordPress (who have been putting a faggoty “rainbow flag” on my admin pages since yesterday; you cannot see it, but I can) will kick out all the blogs that do not conform to the new mantra of satanic “inclusiveness”. Still the First Amendment protects all US based blogs, but when you start to decide that being a pervert is a “human right” it follows that Catholics are the new Ku Klux Klan.
WordPress has, all in all, been very good to me as they allow you to create an anonymous blog that is really anonymous. Blogger (Google) does not do it, as you must register with email and mobile phone. In Europe you cannot get anonymous, prepaid mobile phone numbers, or anonymous, disposable credit cards come to that, and it would not be possible to do a lot that can be done in the US. Therefore, the alternatives are limited.
I will stay with WordPress for the time being, but the time will come when either they ban this blog or I decide that there is a better alternative around. As it is, the work of transferring all the material to a new platform for no material improvement is, I think, not worth the hassle.
Still: with WordPress you can get an “export file”, which would allow you to move all of your texts (I think it’s limited to the texts; not sure) to another blog. It is a series of “xml” files. I have downloaded the files, but if push comes to shove I would be absolutely lost at knowing what to do with them. I assume the work of “blog transfer” is a very technical one, because WordPress wants more than $100 to do it from their clients (I would not do it anyway, because there is no way of anonymous payment).
This message has, therefore, the following appeal:
1. If any of you good people has enough technical knowledge to make a backup copy of my blog from outside (that is: without me giving you my password, just as a third party user), please feel free to do so. I doubt very much that this is possible for both legal and technical reasons, but hey, what do I know….
2. If it were to come to the worst, I would have to look for a suitable alternative to WordPress and then look for people skilled enough that, on being given the files, they can put all or some of them in the new blog of choice, with me giving them the password to make all necessary arrangements. I imagine this would be a time-consuming work, so I think it could be done on a limited scope initially, or from several people a bit at a time.
I am looking for volunteers who would, should the time come, know how to do it and would be ready to do it. Again, it does not have to be done now, but I am aiming at knowing what degree of difficulty it would have and how difficult would it be to find good souls ready to do this good deed.
There are more than 4000 posts on this blog (including the reblogs, but still…). It would be a shame if all this work were to get lost.
We are living extraordinary days.
Days almost comparable to those lived by Christians during the Arian Crisis, or by French believers during the Revolution. A world is crumbling around us; but this world was – through the utter treason of most of our clergy – already decrepit, so that there are not even so many people noticing it apart from the minority who care. If in a democracy a Prime Minister-slash-president can promote any kind of “gender” madness without being symbolically flayed alive you know an awful lot has gone wrong for an awfully long time.
Whilst this has its own (obvious) challenges, it also has its (less obvious) rewards.
Sweet Lucia says to the Innominato, in the Immortal Work, “Dio perdona tante cose per un’opera di misericordia”, “God forgives many things for a work of mercy”.
God forgives many things for a work of mercy. Those among us who dare to take a stand in these dark times will be rewarded hundredfold, thousandfold!
Wretched sinner that we all are (at least: I am), the coming times offer us all a wonderful occasion to get “brownie points” to be used when we sit in front of our Just Judge. In the best of cases we will lose friends (but were they really friends?), and professional opportunities (but would they have been really opportune?). In the worst of cases… God, give us strength. All worth it. All the work of Providence.
I do not think Mass Scale Persecution is a problem of our generation; but when writing about the stupid Californian homosexual judges rejecting Proposition 8 I would also never have imagined that only a handful of years later we would have had Obergefell vs Hodges, or an Evil Clown as Pope. Things are happening very fast now, and the sheer amount of madness generates the next mad episode of madness.
The West has chosen Sodom. You refuse to comply with the world’s command. Think of the merit this is going to accrue for you.
Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
We have not seen; and yet we have believed. We have believed in the face of planetary madness.
For all those who have been shocked by yesterday’s news, it would be good to go to sleep today with this thought in their mind.
Never lose faith. Never lose hope. We have won already. But every battle has casualties. It is wrong to be a suicide warrior. But if it is not to be avoided, it is glorious to be a casualty in this battle.
The good in the bad is that the fewer we are, the more meritorious will our effort be.
It is, undoubtedly, a compliment when someone writes to you in a comment (as happened today)
“Hope you realize how much you are doing for those of us occasionally tempted, gravely so, to despair”
I thank (again) for the kind words. However, the words are scary; and they are scary in such a way that I feel the need of writing a couple of lines.
Firstly, I hope “despair” is meant here (as in other readers) in the generic sense of “not knowing where to turn or what to do”, rather than in the religious sense of “voluntary and complete abandonment of all hope of saving one’s soul and of having the means required for that end”. The first is rather human, if very weak, in the present circumstances; but the second is a very grave sin whose thought should never be entertained by my esteemed readers.
Let us, them, assume that the reader wanted to say (as I think she wanted to say): “Hope you realize how much you are doing for those of us occasionally tempted to think that we are being left alone by pretty much everyone in this fake Catholic wasteland”.
Whilst I am pleased, I do think that every reader should make a conscious effort of strengthening of his own spiritual defences.
I would not want for the readers to see this blog as a log they turn to when they think they are drowning. Rather, I wish for my readers to see this blog as a place where they go to get additional strength; to carry it with them the following day and feel a bit, just a bit, more reassured in the Catholic Truth. And the following day, a bit more so. And the following one, another bit. At some point, this reassurance will become a very solid rock.
If I were to be kicked down by a bus, I love to think that I would leave behind a blog read by people who – in part, and through my unworthy effort – have been made stronger by it; strong enough, in fact, that in case of my sudden departure from these blogging pastures they would be perhaps saddened at the loss of a keyboard friend; but would not feel lost in the world, and would not look around in desperation at valid sources of Catholic teaching.
My dear readers, please use this blog to train yourself for a life without this blog. You may find this blog useful, but you do not need this blog. You need prayer and penance, and a heartfelt request to Our Lord to help you and give all necessary strength and faith in whatever difficulty life (and the Gaystapo) should throw at us. If it does not work I know the solution: more prayer, and more penance. If it does not work… you get the drift.
Every day you should think that this is the last day you read a new post on this blog. Is your faith strong? If your faith is strong you will tap in the immense wisdom of two thousand years of perfectly sound Catholic literature as you look around for other favourite blogs and magazines (which, by God’s grace, are out there in abundance, and far better than mine to boot). If your faith is weak you aren’t doing it right.
I am not your fix for your hour of weakness. I am the protein for a lifetime of strength. After reading this blog before going to sleep you must switch off your computer feeling like a lion, not a reassured lamb.
We have already won. We.Have.Already.Won. Those idiots at the Supreme Court and elsewhere are but reckless idiots thinking they can mock God. God will not be mocked. They will be punished.
You do not need this blog. Prayer and penance, and a heartfelt request for the Lord’s help in giving us the grace necessary to live through this astonishing bad time. God does not deny the necessary graces that are asked for devoutly, insistently, in prayer. This is what you, and I, all need.
The A/C Reblog
I wonder if this Marco Tosatti article would have made for a good inspiration for a show in the style of MTV “Cribs” where, instead of the ear-ringed rap singer impossible to understand (no’ wha’ I’m say’? yo!) you get the somewhat more stylish, humble abode of His Humbleness himself.
I have already written about the fact that with Francis’ occupation of vast space (one entire floor, it seems; it makes sense, for security reasons) within the Domus Sanctae Marthae, rooms are taken away from the usual hotel guests, whilst the papal apartments are obviously (and let us hope no one gives Francis the idea) not given to illegal immigrants trying to introduce themselves into Italy through some shitty boat. But this here is different, because it exposes the hypocrisy of the “humble man” thinking in its minutest details.
Firstly: I have thought – like, I…

The recent words of the Unholy Father concerning Evolution would, perhaps, justify some words. The problem with that is that the topic is absolutely vast, and not apt for a blog post. I will, therefore, limit myself to expressing some of my thoughts on the matter.
“Evolution” is used in many and confusing ways. I mention today three which, in my experience, are the most commonly found:
1. The idea that species evolve.
Today’s cat is different from the cat of many years ago. Japanese are, on average, 20 cm or more taller now than they were before WW II. The smartphone evolves into, say, the Sony Z3. The Porsche 911 evolves in the “991” iteration currently on sale. An awful lot “evolves” in life, and it is clear that this is in God’s plan. The human body himself evolves from a tiny and defenceless being into a strong being…

Courtesy of Father Z, the first three paragraphs of the statement of the USCCB, released by Archbishop Kurtz:
Regardless of what a narrow majority of the Supreme Court may declare at this moment in history,the nature of the human person and marriage remains unchanged and unchangeable. Just as Roe v. Wade did not settle the question of abortion over forty years ago, Obergefell v. Hodges does not settle the question of marriage today. Neither decision is rooted in the truth, and as a result, both will eventually fail. Today the Court is wrong again. It is profoundly immoral and unjust for the government to declare that two people of the same sex can constitute a marriage.
The unique meaning of marriage as the union of one man and one woman is inscribed in our bodies as male and female. The protection of this meaning is a critical dimension of the “integral ecology” that Pope Francis has called us to promote. Mandating marriage redefinition across the country is a tragic error that harms the common good and most vulnerable among us, especially children. The law has a duty to support every child’s basic right to be raised, where possible, by his or her married mother and father in a stable home.
Jesus Christ, with great love, taught unambiguously that from the beginning marriage is the lifelong union of one man and one woman. As Catholic bishops, we follow our Lord and will continue to teach and to act according to this truth.
The statement is beautifully written, and so un-Franciscan in its concise and pithy way. Particularly the first three paragraphs are, if you ask me, impressive coming from US bishops.
This leads me to talk about the huge problem represented by… the US bishops. There are few examples on the planet of Catholic bishops who have more consistently abandoned the teaching of Our Lord, and tried to appease everything and everyone. There are few other nations in which the bishops have, to such an extent, preferred to focus on easy demagoguery (on immigration issues, say) rather than administering to their flock the hard, but salutary, medicine of Truth. I do not remember Cardinals from other Countries marching on a debauchery feast together with debauched perverts openly proclaiming their own perversions. There aren’t many Countries whose Cardinals go around saying they have “no sense of shame”, and “good for him”, about an idiot “coming out” with his own perversion.
Dolan isn’t the only one, obviously, and the amount of rubbish coming out of the mouth of these wolves exceeds by far Dolan’s vast frame. But Dolan is the most representative face, and therefore will have to stand as example for all the others.
The US clergy have betrayed their sheep so systematically, so ruthlessly, so shamelessly that the few paragraphs of censure now released sound extremely hollow. Not only they had it coming, but they contributed to this mess every step of the way.
If the US bishops and cardinals think that, when their hour comes, they will get away with it because of a couple of press releases they will, I think, be very surprised when they die. And one wonders, even today, where the excommunications are, and in how many other period in history people of such power attacked Christianity with such virulence whilst professing themselves Catholics, and they are not excommunicated. I am not only talking of judges here, but also of senators and governors at the very least.
These here are crocodile tears.
And one has to wonder whether the crocodile is crying at all; or, rather, secretly smiling as he shows his tears.
I generally do not indulge in such rhetorical questions, but this time the question doesn’t appear very rhetorical.
For you non-Americans, the story in very short format. In 2000, the citizens of California vote in a referendum a proposition (“Proposition 22”) to ban homosexual so-called marriages. In 2008, the California Supreme Court strikes down the referendum decision because “unconstitutional”, that is: the court decides that the people are naughty and therefore their will doesn’t count.
The citizens of California then proceed to held a second referendum on Election Day 2008 to have homo-marriages banned (“Proposition 8”) and give it a majority for the second time; this time the approved proposal is that the ban be inserted in the Californian Constitution so that the judges of the California Supreme Court will not be able to play God or to decide that they are naughty and therefore their will doesn’t count, again

As the Supreme Court of the United States published its long-known satanical decision about sexual perversion, not a few foreigners (like me) are left to stun how the most powerful democracy in the world can leave the most important decisions in the Country to nine men, or women, or dykes; this, after allowing homosexual judges to attack voter-sanctioned constitutional amendments without recusing them, seen that they did not have the modicum of shame necessary to recuse themselves. More than thirty US States voted in favour of basic reason, and decided it to be enshrined in their state Constitutuion. Nine judges walked over all of them, both the voters and the Constitutions.
The repercussions of this will be, as expected, vast. An army of lemmings will now decide that to join the bandwagon is the only thing to do, and we can expect the Constitutional courts of other European countries to follow down the same perverted lines in the case where they have not done so. One can only hope the respective legal systems will be more resilient to judicial ingerence than the US.
prepare yourself for a tidal wave of Satanical stupidity. When I open my WordPress page this morning there was a rainbow band at the top. Frigging idiots. Google hasn’t “reacted” yet, nor has Yahoo, but I do not doubt when they see others trying to garner some feel-good feeling from this they will not be slow in following.
We must pray that God’s punishment to us (in this life; I can’t even imagine in the next one) may cease soon, and sanity restored.
I expect Pope Francis’ next encyclical to be devoted to endangered butterflies.
You know those surveys asking you for all those questions? Gender? Ethnicity? Disability? Or all those questions I have to answer if I want to go through a U.S. airport gate?
Why am I forced to answer them truthfully, and risk, say, a prosecution if I make a false declaration?
If Bruce Jenner is free to decide he is a woman, should I not be free to decide that I am Black, African, and Disabled?
“But you aren't, Mundabor!”
Well, exactly that is the point. I ain't. Therefore, to claim that I am something I am not is a lie and a fraud.
Perverts are allowed to lie and defraud. To them, reality is presented as something they can reshape at will. Decent people risk a criminal prosecution. Because they are – quite rightly – not supposed to give false representations.
They aren't. Only perverts are.
I have just written a blog post explaining that Francis is evil, but stupid too.
The man makes me the courtesy of confirming my words in the funniest of ways: he blasts those who talk too much, listen little.
I quote, and if you are at the office with a cup of coffee in your hands, put it down now.
“When Jesus warns people to beware of ‘false prophets’, he says: ‘By their fruits ye shall know them’. And here, by their attitude: so many words, they speak, they do wonders, do great things but they do not have an open heart to hear the Word of God; they are afraid of the silence of the word of God and these are the ‘pseudo Christians’, the ‘pseudo pastors ‘.
Can you believe this guy?
Now, I am not saying Francis is describing himself: he is not a false prophet, does not do great things, much less wonders, and everyone with a brain sees what a dimwit he is.
But that he should go around shooting himself in the foot in this way, without even noticing, is hilarious.
Pity St John The Baptist. The poor man did not have the fine insights of prime Judas like Baldisseri, Kasper, or Francis.
If he had had, he would have understood that the situation was simply “irreversible”. Look, They say, it would have been ideal if Herodias had remained with her husband. But clearly, there was now a new situation of which St John had to take account; a new reality to which he should have reacted with compassion and sensitivity. Then there was a child, in her teens; a very delicate age, in which separation from the father can lead to lifelong scars.
Where was St John’s compassion? Did he know anything about inclusiveness? Had he ever heard of mercy? Why did not prepare a path for Heros and Herodias? Why this cruel exclusion?
How could St John ask Herodias and Herod Antipas to… just split? Destroy a new family? Destroy a new reality? With a child in it?
I cannot imagine what would happen to St John today. He would probably be beheaded by Michelle Obama (she needs only one hand for the sword) after Barack Hussein Obama has played for her the dance of the seven faggots (a gender-neutral celebration of diversity), in front of an audience of screaming feminists, lesbians, and assorted man-pussies.
Now as then, the motivation behind the justification of sin is the desire to sin, to cover sin, or to profit from it.
God will not be fooled.
I cannot avoid imagining that Herod, Herodiades and Salome, upon knowing of Francis’ and his minions’ last push, commented “this is a bunch of people we will get to meet rather soon”.
“What Catholics once were, we are. If we are wrong, then Catholics through the ages have been wrong.
We are what you once were. We believe what you once believed.
We worship as you once worshipped. If we are wrong now, you were wrong then. If you were right then, we are right now”.
We are, probably because of too many movies and novels, accustomed to think of the evil man as a man of uncommon intelligence. Whether it is The Joker, or Doctor Moriarty, we quite naturally link a great evil attitude with great gifts turned bad.
It does not have to be so. History shows us that a lot of people are evil without being smart, actually often being the contrary of smart. In Italy everyone knows the history of Masaniello, but you do not need to search so far. The newspapers are full of idiots who want to do evil and show how stupid they are in the process, from the one massacring people in church to stoke racial hatred to the one robbing cigars and threatening the shop owner in front of a camera and then proceeding to walk in the middle of the street with the cigar box well in sight, and then again attacking an armed policeman and thinking…. no one knows what. Many other examples could be made.
No. Very often, evil is stupid. This is actually much more common than the other case, then there aren’t many Goebbels or Stalins around.
Francis is a great example of this. He never run a country, or a party. His ascent to the Papacy came without having absolutely anything to show for himself besides running down, as much he could, a Seminary and a couple of dioceses. Incompetence and stupidity are – together with his great hypocrisy – the one true mark of his career.
This man simply isn’t smart. Actually, this man simply is a nincompoop. He is very uneducated, but too stupid to even try to hide this from the masses. No, he must tell you how much “power” air conditioning has instead, and that our extremely clean Western Countries are a “pile of filth”. He just reveals himself like the uneducated cretin he is; but, being an uneducated cretin, he does not notice it.
Francis is your typical pub rant champion who thinks how to redo the world, and has barely an idea of how to use knife and fork. He is one of those resentful old men people sincerely pity, or heartily despise, or both. Alas, some reckless Cardinals made him Pope, because he came from such a forgotten corner of the planet that his misdeeds weren’t noticed.
But his being uneducated and stupid does not mean he is not evil. He is not retarded, so he still knows what he is doing. His motivations are clear enough. The ideology driving him has been made manifest many times.
Evil, uneducated, and stupid.
That pretty much covers it.
Every one of my readers certainly remembers Pope John Paul The Not-So-Great kissing that blasted Koran, instead of burning it.
That disgraceful episode had, at least, two extenuating circumstances: the Pope was clearly not compos mentis, and the Vatican officials tried to hide the act of a man now clearly gaga from the world. Alas, the Muslim side couldn't believe their luck, and ran to leak the photo. V II happens.
I see no extenuating circumstances in the Evil Clown kissing a Valdensian bible. Whilst a Valdensian Bible is not a Koran, it is a heretical book, and there can be no doubt that the kissing of heretical work is offensive to God.
In addition, even a Patheos blogger and my cat understand that this kissing was not the act of a man who is “not there with his head”, but the deliberate act of celebration of a Protestant attitude as expressed by their heretical texts. Francis is, as always, promoting heresy and trying to put into your head that it's perfectly fine to have a preference for vanilla, strawberry, or stracciatella if you don't like the Catholic Chocolate. Hey, we are all united by our love for ice cream! Ah! Uh? No?
John Paul II was clearly gaga when he kissed the Koran. But Francis is the very epitome of a Papacy gone gaga. A Pope not missing one occasion to sabotage Catholicism, and reproaching Catholics for believing in Catholicism at the same time.
I stop here.
They say one should not grossly insult the Pope.
I read around that 2015 could be the name of the “gender neutral” name. This are names that do not say whether the poor baby is a boy or a girl. This will give a substantial contribution to the confusion of the poor boy, or girl, and make him an easier pray to sexual perverts, particularly because a boy, or girl, raised in such an environment is not very likely to grow in the midst of sane people: manly men and feminine women.
The parents rejoice. “My son is questioning at the moment. We are very excited to see what comes out”.
A way even more promising to pervert one’s child is, though, the direct embracing of sexual perversion.
A boy called “Loretta” will have a direct attempt to make of him a pervert made on him from his youngest age. He will not remember being called anything other than what he is not, from his youngest age. When asked a school, he will be trained not to say what he is. His little friend will be considered no more than an option, basically an embarrassment.
Apparently,the actor Ryan Reynolds is attempting that on his own child. The man and his wife/companion/whatever have not been directed to any doctor. It is not known to me there are any initiative to take the child away from them and give him in adoption to normal people.
Perversion of one’s own child promoted and celebrated. This is the world we live in.
The Traditional Catholic Priests has one (actually, two) posts about St Athanasius.
St Athanasius did not declare the Pope deprived of his office. He did not start any “Athanasian” church. He did not care about precedent, either.
St Athanasius did the Catholic thing, and kept doing what had always been done to the end; irrespective of how mad, or weak, or evil the Pope of the day was.
We look today at those years and see a coherent development: Satan tries to destroy the Church. Faithful Catholics react. Satan loses.
However, in those times things were certainly not so linear. For many years, actually a couple of decades, vast part of Christianity must have looked like a nuclear wasteland, the air full of Arian nuclear fallout. It was, certainly, not so easy in those days to believe in the Indefectibility of the Church as we do now.
We do now…

In times past, the son of an adulterous relationship was called a “bastard”. Unpleasant as this was for the young person in question, the custom had an obvious social control function: very simply, it made it much less than desirable to be born a bastard.
Was the bastard “guilty” of his parent’s sin? No, he wasn’t. They had sinned, not him, if we exclude the original sin which affects us all. But the sins of the fathers shall be visited upon the sons, and the bastard will have to accept this like everyone else. The sin of the parents created a disadvantageous situation for the son. It had to be so, if Christian family had to be protected.
The bastard was also – in many Countries, like Italy – either excluded or partially excluded from the inheritance. Was this fair? It certainly was it in consideration of the higher interests at stake. It was so, because the need to protect the Christian vision of society was considered more important than the private drama of the poor boy or girl, however unfortunate his own situation.
Now, in this as in the other matters just discussed (the son of the scandalous adulterers) the attitude changed when the priorities changed. When God’s rules were the priority, there was no discussion about these matters. But when the West began to de-Christianise, suddenly the destiny of the illegitimate son was seen as “cruel”.
Lose sight for the priorities, and all the rest will crumble.
As Christianity retreated from First Priority to Great Embarrassment, the rules had to change. The child is illegitimate, but he must be made a legitimately illegitimate child. He will share equally in the inheritance, thus compromising the patrimonial integrity of the family and taking away the idea that it… pays to be born in a proper family. He must also not be called “cruel” names, thus obliterating the sin and placing another huge bomb under the stool of Christian society. The rise of the bastard (around half of the children currently born in the UK as I write this) is largely the result of the decline of Christianity.
All this PC thinking hides a de facto Paganism, in which Christian rules are seen as an impediment. When Christianity is seen as cruel, the rules must be bent to accommodate them to the new religion: inclusiveness; at this point, Christian values can be stuffed. They are the impediment. Popes and other Kasperites will run to invent a new vocabulary of fluffy heresy to persuade us of what no generation of Christians ever believed.
At some point, is it a surprise that these new Pagans will see it as “cruel” that the adulterers and the open fags do not receive communion?
Lose sight of your priorities, and everything else will crumble.
