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.
