The “don’t give money to bad parishes” reblog
I have writte often, and I am not the only one, that bad dioceses and priests must be starved. Do not give them a dime, period.
This presents, of course, some apparent difficulties. A bad bishop could close the good parishes in order to keep feeding the bad ones. He could get the missing money by starting to monetise the vast patrimony many dioceses have. He could intensify his calls for donations from wealthy donors who, in some countries like the UK, make 70% of the total donations if memory serves me.
However, all this simply should not interest you. You just can’t keep feeding evil people just because they happen to be priests and bishops.
Yes, a miserable V II church near you, led by a priest with a suspiciously high-pitched voice, might close down one day, the building deconsecrated and sold to a developer to be converted in…

What does a Communist dictator do when he sees that the people do not want Communism and desire to free themselves from its joke? He reacts with… more Communism, and with the suppression of all opposition.
This is exactly what we have witnessed in the last days.
The Traditional Latin Mass is constantly increasing in popularity, showing with increasing clarity to more and more faithful that the future is.. the past. This cannot be tolerated by one who, like Francis, hates the Church and the faithful with all his might. A Castro in white, this man is incensed at the “rigid” faithful; faithful who, in his eyes, are nothing but “counterrevolutionaries” who stay in the way of the edification of Socialism within the Church. He will not have any of that.
As always in these cases – and a lot of Communist dictators have experienced this directly -, the imposition of a wrong ideology against irresistible (and, in our case, supernatural) forces can never work in the long term. In the same way as the injection of more Communism into a social system causes this system to become even more inefficient and even more of a failure as it smashed its head against the irresistible forces of the free markets, the attempt of Francis to simply suppress the most authentic expression of Catholic life, the Traditional Latin Mass, is unavoidably destined to smash its head against the irresistible forces of Christ, His Angels and His Saints.
If Francis had some sense, he would understand this. In fact, even I, who consider him nothing more than an ignorant, stupid, arrogant, lewd old man, thought that he had, at least, understood as much in his days of lucidity. As turns out, though, the man had simply been waiting for Benedict to die, and had to act when it became clear that Benedict is much better at staying alive than he is at resisting the wolves.
In fact, the funny part of me can’t but imagine Benedict feverishly dancing in the gardens of the Vatican, day in and day out, his white robe jumping to and fro with youthful enthusiasm, at the refrain of
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin’ aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive
whilst an angry Francis watches and decides that yes, he will have to act NOW before those pesky Catholics end up subverting his Socialist plan and decide to take Catholicism and the Liturgy seriously, en masse!
And this is, in a joking and imaginative way, the root of what has happened here.
Benedict did not want to die, and Francis couldn’t wait any longer before he makes the work of the devil.
Both of them, as it is well known, hate the Tridentine Mass with a passion.
Explaining Francis: the Reblog
Follow the link to the Mass of the Evil Clown, held in the House of Sodomy.
The money quote is, as recognised by the outlet itself, this one:
“In recent days many people have lost their jobs; they have not been re-employed, they are working illegally … We pray for these brothers and sisters of ours who suffer from this lack of work “.
In one phrase, one can isolate everything that is wrong with this guy. Let us go in order:
- Francis’ preoccupations are never spiritual, they are worldly. When he pretends to be interested in soul, it is just an excuse to push his worldly agenda. So he can say that the poor are exploited, or he can say that those who exploit the poor will go to hell (notabene: the God of Mercy does not help the class enemy…). In the end…

I found in my comment box this excellent comment from Anita O.P.
I can see why people would rather that Francis be an antipope. For one thing, they have a faulty understanding of the scope of a Pope’s authority. Some people think, wrongly, that we are bound to obey a Pope even when he orders us to do something evil, and therefore Jesus would never allow someone to be Pope who would do such a thing. For another, it would be more comforting to think a bad Pope is no Pope at all than to acknowledge that a true Pope can be bad.
But: Francis is the true Pope. He is a typical cleric of his generation: mean, nasty, brutal, vulgar, and contemptuous of all things Catholic. The hierarchy is chock-a-block with guys like him. It was only ever a matter of time until one of them got his kiester onto the Throne of Peter.
This comment is so right, because it photographs a reality that I have seen, from a distance, for many years now, and which was unknown to me until I started reading the blogosphere in the English language: the canonisation on earth of the pope.
This mentality existed, when I was growing up in Italy, only among the peasants, and I am pretty sure even they had their doubts. Whilst the popes were treated with great reverence, they were not considered endowed with any superpower. I was informed about the boundaries of papal infallibility in elementary school; therefore, all Italians of my age were.
I think that there is some perverse mind process at play here. Countless Protestants grew up listening to the tired criticism of their own against Catholics: that Catholics consider the pope “God on earth” and therefore omnipotent, omniscient, and always right. When they converted to Catholicism, they took some of this into their conversion, thinking that their allegiance to Catholicism meant embracing a concept of papal authority that is, actually, not at all Catholic.
In addition, Anglo-Saxon people are, it seems to me, not accustomed to the nuances of the language of traditionally Catholic Countries; a language that makes a much bigger use of hyperbole and, in general, loves powerful images and colourful expressions, but where there is no expectation that these expression and images are taken literally; which, alas, Anglo-Saxons (perhaps ruined by decades of sola scriptura-obsession with words) tend to do a lot.
When I came to England, I discovered that everyday Italian expressions were considered contrary to the second commandment by… Catholics! Lookey here, pal: if one of the most traditionally Catholic Countries on earth puts the word “damned” (as in: damned this, damned that) even in movies for children, and with the censorship office firing on all cylinders, perhaps you should stop and think!
The same mentality is at work concerning the pope. Some convert reads about the pope called “the sweet Peter on earth” and thinks, being a Northerner, that this is what a Pope is, every single time, and no questions asked. Then, when he is confronted with an evil clown like Francis, his head explodes as he wakes up every morning with “sweet Peter on earth” talking like “bitter Satan in hell”.
In fact, I had a woman, once, writing a comment in my box along the lines of: “Mundabor, how can you write such things? Don’t you know that the pope is sweet Peter on earth?”. I think she was a convert.
The second observation of Anita is also completely spot on. The exaggerated role attributed to the papacy sees all these people (many of them Anglos, and many among them certainly converts), twist themselves into a pretzel in order to decide that Francis is not the pope. This is another case of exploding heads, but resolved with a total escape from reality; a reality which, at that point, becomes inexplicable. Meanwhile, Italians read about the corruption of the papacy (which, in Italian history, happens every two and a half steps) and go to church to take part in the novena, without as much as a peep.
Last example: I remember once reading a comment on Father Z’s site, where a reader (in good faith, of course) asked whether it is allowed, on days of abstinence, to eat a certain sauce, which had a certain ingredient with a certain colouring that might have contained minuscule animals which are, in fact, meat. The guy was serious. Father Z answered politely inviting the guy to recover his sanity. I thought this was another result of the combination of Protestant rigidity and conversion to Catholicism.
The last point I also found absolutely correct. People like me, who don’t believe that the Pope has ecstasies upon being elected, saw this coming from far away. One pope starts the process of aggiornamento, the next one does not want a tiara, another one stages ecumenical crap in Assisi, his follower calls Agnostics “seekers”. At some point, this had to happen. Perhaps not so soon and not so harsh, but the direction was clear. Reflect on this: even the allegedly oh so rigid JP II was trying to abolish the death penalty without saying it.
The rot has been deep, and festering, for decades.
The Evil Clown has just announced his next batch of FrancisCardinals and they are, predictably, atrocious. Most notable are two homosexualists, and very possibly present or past sodomites. One has written the foreword for the notorious book of Father Martina himself.
Let that sink in.
Francis is continuing his work of destruction of everything that he can destroy. The man is of Satan. He could come to this point because there were no bishops and Cardinals willing to stand up to him with more than faint meowing and vain posturing.
Honestly, looking at the average person who, today, professes himself a Catholic, I am tempted to say that he deserves Francis and his cardinals.
Enjoy the ride, Pollyannas all over the world, and apostles of the “sweet Peter on earth” mantra as the man showed that he despises them and everything that is Catholic.
Congratulations, Cardinal Burke & Co. Your…
