Prison Planet has the Story of the murder and attempted massacre by two shooters, at least one of whom one of those people they call Transgender. These are people who, belonging to one sex, think they belong to the other. It’s a bit like a cat believing that he is a dog; but worse, because cats tend to have lower intelligence than humans.
The assassin in question, motivated by pure hatred, shows all the madness of modern times. The girl says she is “super suicidal”, but she was not locked in some place where she could be helped to grow out of her madness or, at least, kept where she cannot harm others.
Last time I looked, an astonishing percentage of these extremely disturbed people committed suicide. It does not take a genius to realise that people with this sort of derangement and suicidal thoughts can very easily harm others.
Instead of “affirming” them, a sane Country would actually care for them in the only way you do with lunatics: by putting them in a safe place, where they cannot harm themselves and others and are offered help to recover sanity if at all possible.
One day, I am sure, sanity will prevail over political correctness. But make no mistake, countless of these people will kill themselves, or kill others before they do, before we start thinking again like normal people, and in the same way as all generations before us did.
For now, reflect on how the Western Societies both sides of the Pond have helped the young woman to destroy her life and the life of an innocent, thankfully being too dumb to do all the damage she wanted to do.
We live in mad times. There is no more definitive proof of this than transgenderism, closely followed by the atheist superstition called climate change.
“I’m aware of some state and federal investigations going on regarding Cupich. Hopefully they will pan out, but I’m not at liberty to tell the details yet.”
This is from a reliable source, in answer to a question about the future of Cardinal Cupich, published on Renew America.
I did not know about the investigation. I am glad to know that even in this rotten state of affairs there are people in the Vatican willing to investigate a powerful member of the Heretic Homo Mafia currently keeping the Church as hostage.
I have no doubt that such an investigation will be threatened from all sides, and that Francis will do all he can to quash it. However, after the Vigano’ episode it can be that the Evil Clown has become a tad more prudent in how he carries out his satanic work.
We have come to this: that Cardinals push an obviously evil homo agenda, and we have no hope, no hope whatsoever that the Pope may do anything at all against it. Actually, we know with absolute certainty, repeated countless times in public declarations of all sorts, that that the evil Cardinal was made such exactly to push this agenda!
Depressing, I know. But this blog does not exist to depress you. This blog exists to help you get a proper assessment of the reality on the ground, and live your life in faith drawing the proper conclusions from the assessment you have made.
Ten, twenty, even fifty years of Francischaos, if it goes on for that long, are but a stain in a garment that remains, in its essence and purpose, exactly as sacred and immaculate as it always was. It is not only a quantitative considerations (Francis is nothing more than a blip in the radar screen if compared to 2000 years of Christianity; it is not even that if you look at it sub specie aeternitatis). It is the fact that the sacred function and divinely decreed establishment of the Church are so much superior to any problem in her governance.
How diminished is the dignity of the Papacy if he burps at the table?
The dignity of the man is certainly impacted; and you will call him, and rightly so, a boor. But the dignity of the Papacy, how is it impacted? It isn’t.
The same goes for the Church. Nothing in Her function and sacred establishment is changed by God allowing that She be run by an evil clown and his minions. Their burping does not affect Her. She keeps teaching you and guiding you through the immense patrimony left to us so that we can make good use of it. She is just as indefectible as She always was. Francis and his guy are merely trying to scratch a huge block of granite with a fork, or to deface it with spray paint. By all their scratching and defacing, the immense block of granite will always be there, unchanged in its nature and function.
Too many people look at the paint and think that the granite must be broken, or that it will never survive continued years of scratching. This is wrong. What is divinely instituted does not die because of a Commie from Argentina, or a homo abetter from the USA. The Lord who instituted an indefectible Church will, in His own time, care that everything is back in its proper order: perhaps through the ordinary work of men (as in the investigation against Cupich), perhaps with a more overtly divine intervention; perhaps today, perhaps tomorrow, perhaps after we have all died. But we know this: that the Bergoglios and Cupichs of the world will all be confounded, and that God will not be mocked.
Look at the present day with your eyes wide open. Do not seek an easy escapism in home-made, absurd “solutions” that are merely being in denial.
Look at the magnificence of the Church, and reflect on the Omnipotence of God instead, and thing will fall i place as you gain the right perspective to correctly evaluate the years we are living.
Bergoglio is there, scratching with the fork. Cupich is there, spraying paint like there is no tomorrow.
There is, in the end, nothing they can do against the huge block of granite.
Edward Pentin (who, by way of his job, is forced to read the rubbish we carefully avoid) has sent this tweet about the Satanic Synod. I have put a snippet above.
This gives you the scale of the devastation that is currently ravaging the Church; a devastation that is getting worse almost by the month, and which is aided and abetted by all members of the hierarchy who do not denounce the root of the problem: the Pope.
I will not comment on the single statements above, because there is really no need for it with any Christian. Let me, instead, focus on another issue that is, perhaps, not so evident to many.
This is the fruit of the failure to denounce Pope Francis as a heretic and ask from him that he recants or be deposed. All the members of the hierarchy who have not done this are part of the problem, not of the solution.
Francis has always hated Catholicism. He has hated it with a passion. He has hated it, I think, even more because of the obvious problem of scrounging an entire existence out of an organisation he so seriously loathes.
Now that he is Pope, he is abusing his role and power to demolish the Institution he hates as much as he can; without caring for, or worrying about, any divine punishment, because obviously he does not believe in God, and probably never has.
But do not think that I make of him the only culprit. I have insisted often here, and will continue to say, that this monstrous individual has been aided and abetted every step of the way by all those who, under the pretence of “prudence”, have renounced to draw the consequences from the behaviour of this evil individual.
At which point will the SSPX, and the Bishops and Cardinals, ask for the forced removal of this disgrace?
What if Francis declares God a “She”, but he does not do so in a formal document?
What if Francis instruct us to pray to the Father, the Son and Holy Allah, but he does so in a letter to some Muslim Imam?
What if Francis introduces an eleven commandments, “Thou shall worship Manitu”, but he does so talking with journalists in an aeroplane?
When will this stop? Can the above mentioned individuals (this includes the SSPX) not see the deep damage that is done by allowing Francis’ new “Our father”, or his heresies about the capital punishment, to get into official teaching texts like the Catechisms?
Dear bishops (this includes the SSPX) and Cardinals:
the house is burning, and it is time to take a hard look at the fire.
Yes, the building will never be destroyed. But this is not a reason to let the fire ravage the building.
This disgraceful era (which, bar a Divine Intervention, has all the look of going on for several more decades, as is it clear that evil people are raping the Church unopposed) will be remembered less for the heretical Popes as for the complicit Bishops and Cardinals; because their cowardice and inaction will be remembered long after the very name of the heretical Popes have been forgotten by all but historians and history buffs.
The house is burning, and the smoke of Satan is charring the Church.
Our shepherds react with “prudence”, and faint meowing, and professions of truth that do absolutely nothing to deal with the problem.
It is like having a violent bully at home, and going around the house telling people about the virtues of niceness whilst the furniture is being destroyed all the other occupants have black eyes. For heaven’s sake, Bishops and Cardinals: tell the bully that he needs to stop or he will be kicked out on the street!
Nothing less will suffice, if this generation of Church prelates is to be remembered as Catholic in any meaningful way.
We live in time when one has to write blog posts stating what, in all generatiosn before us, would have been considered so obvious as to be not even worth discussing.
But no, we live in the time of the prudent Bishops.
Good Lord, the latest incurably nice blogger has accused Canon 212’s Frank Walker of being “snarky”.
Boy, that calls for the confessional…
Let us look around us, shall we?
Not even the Our Father is safe from the Modernist attack of a damn Commie envious of all those who have achieved something in life without scrounging an existence from people they hate (like Bergoglio clearly did); there is no Sacrament free from attack from the inside; the Seal of Confession is under threat and we have a Pope worrying to import as many Muslims in the West as fast as possible; we have a Pope going around spitting heresies and stupid SJW propaganda day in and day out; countless bishops and many Cardinals are being appointed that will perpetuate (bar a Divine intervention) the mess and make it worse….
And in all this, it would be bad to be “snarky”.
Mr Walker, if you want to hear my advice:
Be (and I claim the copyright on this) Snarkistissimo!!
These times do not call for nice reflections on the difficulty of the situation. They call for the utter shaming of all corrupted and infidel clergy and laity, with whatever means language affords.
Enough with the apostles of niceness. I always suspect they were (if they are US citizen) too nice to vote for Trump.
Niceness is the poison of modern times. It ensures the enemy never gets attacked effectively, and always gets the upper hand when they whine and call us names; which we counter, of course, by apologising and being “nice”; and the cycle goes on because your enemy really doesn’t care that you are nice.
Niceness is not a religion. Niceness isn’t even a moral obligation. Niceness is merely an option. Our Lord wasn’t nice to the money changers, or to the Pharisees. John The Baptist must, in his public utterances, have been “nice” fairly rarely. Padre Pio was famously short-tempered.
For heaven’s sake, let us get rid of this disease of niceness as the only acceptable standard once and for all.
I am nice to people who either deserve my niceness, or who have done nothing to have it withdrawn. Failing that, it’s the end of niceness, and the guy on the other side notices it very fast.
Enough with this niceness obsession. This is an Anglo thing anyway. In more southern climates the communication is way more direct, and no one cries in horror.
These Anglo Countries seem to take as the model of communication the most effeminate category of people I know: Anglican (Mickey Mouse) priests.
For heaven’s sake: grow some balls, and learn some “snarky”.
“What the Pope said about not knowing anything is a lie. […] He pretends not to remember what I told him about McCarrick, and he pretends that it wasn’t him who asked me about McCarrick in the first place.”
These are the words of Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano’ , immediately replying to the assertion of the Evil Clown that he did not know about the proclivities of Cardinal McCarrick.
It is, truly, rather amusing that a person notorious for his serial lies would change tack on the matter and, instead of just refusing to answer, would go on record officially contradicting the Archbishop. Does he think he will be believed?
Not happening. This is the price you pay when you go around lying like there is no tomorrow for six years. People laugh at everything you say. You would think the old scoundrel should know that by now; but in Francisland, facts are mere options.
Just as a snippet: it has been reported (search this blog, or the Internet) that this guy, in an interview to a Spanish language magazine, a) lied to his own mother (who was financing his studies) saying to her he was studying medicine when he was in the Jesuit seminary, and b) boasted about it, himself!
Imagine the guy! By the by, already this gives the lie to the “pious Bergoglio family” legend.
Back to our comedian: one is tempted to think that Francis calculates that his word, as the word of the Pope, must be taken in more consideration than the word of an Archbishop.
Sadly for the Evil Clown, this is not the Cuban Communist Party. Every person with a functioning brain knows the difference between an obvious mythomaniac and a man who is paying a heavy price for choosing to tell the truth, for the good of both his own soul and all of us.
It would have been better for the Evil Clown if he had continued to shut up about this.
By opening his lewd mouth and lying again, he has made his likely destination in hell just that tad darker and deeper.
Let us make clear something at the start: you write a blog, you will be insulted. I have a fairly thick skin, and I have always been blessed with a sovereign contempt for the attacks of people of mediocre intelligence; therefore, most of the time I smile about it, and take it as a confirmation that I am doing something right.
What, however, strikes me as odd is the fact that those who choose to insult me do not have, on many occasions, any sense of proportions, or any respect for the language.
I object to be called hyper-trad, as there are around people with much, much stronger views about Traditionalism than me. One example: I do not advocate that people skip Mass if they do not have a Traditional Mass within reasonable distance. If I am hyper-trad, what are they: super-duper-hyper-mega Trads?
The expression hyper-polemic also leaves me quite perplexed: one does not need to go around the internet for long in order to find sites with much stronger expressions than the ones I use; but I assume that for some people, it is enough to smash “hyper” on their article and the job is done.
But the worst is to say that I have veered towards Sedevacantism. I can comfortably say that at least 80% of the insults I get (might be more) are, in actual fact, because I didn’t.
This indiscriminate use of hyperbole is a betrayal of the language, besides being factually wrong.
Insult me as much as you want, it’s (still) a free Internet. But please, take the time to read around a bit before you call me hyper-here, hyper-that, and even Sedevacantist!
Words have lost their meaning. Facts are irrelevant. Everything is digital nowadays.
Trump is a danger to women.
The Russians have decided the 2016 election.
Building walls is unChristian.
But heavens, making of me a Sedevacantist is as “fake news” as it gets.
Still, I was mildly bemused, and actually had to chuckle when I discovered that the person who insulted me in such a way proceeded, immediately thereafter, to take the pain to translate (approvingly!) an entire blog post of yours truly: the hyper-trad, hyper-polemic Sedevacantist!
When even those who insult you feel the need to invest a decent amount of time to let the world know what you think, one can be bemused indeed.
Matteo Salvini, the Home Office Minister, Vice Prime Minister and de facto strong man of the Italian Government, has seen a strong increase in support at the European Election.
This is relevant not only for the obvious political implications concerning the authoritarian project called “European Union”, but also because it gives a very clear idea of the power Francis has in Italy, that is: very little.
The background: during the electoral campaign, Salvini stressed the Christian and Catholic culture of the Country against the dangers of you-know-what. He was seen holding a Rosary. He even entrusted the Country to the Blessed Virgin. Not entirely unpredictably, he was savagely attacked by Francis’ hounds. Defending Catholicism is now seen an Uncatholic. There is no doubt on earth – and no one doubted in Italy – that Francis was, and is, openly against Salvini.
In a Country with still an awful lot of Catholics, you would think that Salvini would be punished at the ballot box. You would think so, because 1) Salvini’s electorate is just the one more likely to be linked to Catholic values, and 2) there was at least a perfectly valid alternative to Salvini, sending pretty much exactly the same message on the whole if you don’t like the EU in its present form.
Well, guess what: the good Italian people have, collectively speaking, told Francis what they think of him and of his one-world caricature of the Faith, deciding to support and make stronger the very same man the Vatican has so strongly attacked. And if you read the Italian newspapers (and know a bit about Italian politics) you know that this is not only an EU affair: as of this morning, the balance of power within the Government has clearly shifted, and Salvini is even more its numero uno. Well done, Frankie dear!
It gets worse.
God knows Salvini isn’t a model Catholic by any stretch of the imagination. In the presence of a Catholic Pope, he would be in an extremely difficult position. But the fact is this: correctly, the good people of Italy have recognised that even Salvini is way more Catholic than the Pope.
Francis is finished. He is finished as a Pope because no sane Catholic respects him, and he is finished as a figure of influence because even those only vaguely culturally Catholic just don’t care a straw about what he says.
The only ones who agree with Francis are those who don’t need him, and to whom he can be of no use: environuts, third-worldists, and assorted atheists and enemies of Christ.
Keep sinking, Evil Clown.
It will be a joy to watch.
The time might come, in this generation or in the next one, when it is necessary to fight again for it, possibly on American soil.
Enjoy this emotional, beautiful reflection from a man that certainly (from what I know of him) is not one of those I would invite for dinner; but here he does it beautifully.
I have bad news for you. You live in times where the Pope goes around preaching heresy and not even his Bishops (let alone the Cardinals) have the courage to do anything, bar a couple of courageous, isolated voices that remain unheeded.
I have more bad news for you. The impending (be realistic now: he is 92) death of Benedict, the Pontiff Emeritus and Eternal Celestine, will cure absolutely nothing in this, not does his being alive (with all his pomp and circumstances; the white habit and the vain title, “Emeritus”, the “silent” interviews and the private archbishop secretary) do anything to remedy the situation now.
You are, realistically and bar a Divine Intervention, facing a long, long time of this. Just consider that, when the Evil Clown finally croaks, the Conclave will be composed by Cardinals nominated, in the majority, by him. Yes, you can dream that the Cardinals will wake up and refuse to allow those nominated by Francis to take part in the next conclave; but at this point this is, also, a pious fantasy: those not appointed by Francis would not only be the minority, but they would have the Tagles and (until 2022) the Maradiagas of the world among them.
Face it: you are likely going to live and die in the Time of Madness.
How do you react to it?
By being Catholic, no matter what. By trying to be what all the generations before you have tried to be. Of course, you will also push, as far as you can, for the restoration of sanity. But as far as your private redde rationem with God is concerned, you just use the manual that has been in use for two thousand years. Some useful steps in this direction.
- Pray the Rosary every day. Start today.
- Look for a Traditional Latin Mass. Try to attend there if this is reasonable. In both cases, go on Youtube and watch some recording. Imbibe yourself with the absolute superiority of the Tridentine Mass compared with the dumbed-down kindergarten spectacle you dutifully inflict on yourself every Sunday (I look at it as a penance now).
- Buy and read “Iota Unum”. It is not cheap, but it is worth every penny. This book will not only allow you to obtain, a contrario, a comprehensive picture of sound Catholicism. It will also allow you to give a historic perspective to the current madness, to see it as a satanic loaf that has been proofing for decades now.
- Read the SSPX publications (Angelus Press), and first of all “one hundred years of Modernism”. Again, this will give you a historic perspective of what is happening. It will allow you to see the current Pontificate as a point in time in the course of a long disease, not a sudden earthquake leaving you unable to understand how this could happen in the first place.
- Throw away your JP II Catechism. Do it now. No, I mean now. Read the rest of this post when it has gone in the rubbish bin.
- Buy one or more old Catechisms. The Penny Catechism is simple, but excellent. The four Baltimore Catechisms are also outstanding. There are several others (Council of Trent, Pius X), that you may find in English if you look around.
- Inform yourself, and follow as much as you can, old Catholic traditions and devotional practices: say, Friday abstinence, or the traditional prayer before the meals, or the days of fasting; or the Forty Hours, or the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
- Make an effort of memorisation, like in old times. Do you know the Commandments by heart? The works of mercy? The Gifts of the holy spirit? The deadly sins? It may seem a little thing, but you will see that it becomes useful both in your spiritual life and in your interactions with others. We live in times of great spiritual ignorance. A little can go a long way. Besides, and as Lucia in the Promessi Sposi says, “Dio perdona tante cose per un’opera di misericordia!”, “God forgives many things for one work of mercy!”.
One could go on along this line, but I think I have outlined the fundamentals.
The bottom line is this: as much as you reasonably can, expunge Vatican II from your life without waiting that the Church does the same. Do not do it to the point of it being counterproductive (say: do not stop attending Mass just because a Tridentine Mass is not reasonably available), but, within the realm of reason and common sense, give V II the booth.
When you die, you will go to your judgement knowing that you have, sinful as you certainly are, and with God’s Grace, actively tried to give to Christ more than the disfigured Church of the XXI Century wanted you to.
Not a bad hand of cards, I would say.
And nothing that an evil Pope like Francis can do against it.
I write a good number of posts about the antics of the disgraceful Pope currently defacing the Church. A Leitmotiv of my reflections is the, in my eyes very obvious and banal, consideration that it is not for me to say who is the Pope. I tend to be a rather down-to-earth guy, not inclined to conspiracy theories and fantasy solutions to real problems.
The sun goes up in the East; water is wet; Francis is Pope.
Whatever Francis does, he is still Pope until something happens (he dies, hopefully soon, or he is deposed) that makes him stop being Pope. And yes, even the one whom some insist in considering the “true Pope” (an old man of 92, therefore condemning the position to total failure, and actually to sedevacantism, in a very short time) disagrees with them. It does not get more absurd than this. It is an escape from reality, that does not become less real if you make a 23 hours documentary about it.
It seems to me that these escapists are all linked by a common reasoning: this Pope is so atrocious that he cannot be Pope. Therefore, I must go finding a Pope whenever I can and hey, look, there is an old guy over there who still dresses in white! He thinks and says out loud that Francis is the one in charge, but why would I care? He gives me the balm I so urgently need. Screw reality and common sense. He is my guy.
If you ask me, what these escapist Catholics all fail to understand is the magnitude of the betrayal of Vatican II. When they realise the scale of the offence to God that the event (actually, the “movement”) represented, you will have no problem at all to understand why Francis is Pope! Francis is nothing more than the living warning, the poster boy of what happens when the clergy (and the faithful who have , in their greater number, accepted or embraced the “movement”) deforms and defaces the Church. From the monstrous, satanic behaviour of the Pope you understand the monstrous, satanic behaviour of the movement that caused him to become Pope.
Francis is, at the same time, punishment and medicine. He is punishment for the arrogance of both clergy and faithful (collectively intended). He is medicine, because every day he persuades some of the more reasonable member of the V II troops that the man is actual evidence that V II was rotten at its very core, and the work of the devil.
No, it is not for me to figure out who is Pope. I know who is Pope, as does all Christianity. But it is for me to reflect how things could come to the point that a man like this one was made Pope. There is only one answer: Vatican II, the most successful subversive movement within the Church in 2000 years, and the work of the devil through and through.
Do not worry for the Church: the Church can withstand fifty Francis. Even the most powerful heretic can only scratch at truth like a child would do with a block of granite. Truth is indestructible, and the Church will, however deformed, continue to preach this truth even if the Pope (and the next twenty Popes) are heretics. But rather, it is reasonable to think that when both clergy and faithful are fed up with heretical Pope, things will start to change.
We are being given a medicine.
Will be swallow and start a process of healing, or make of it Sedevacantist poison?
The armies of evil have used incrementalism to achieve their goals again and again.
“Give us civil partnerships and we will not touch your marriage”. After a few years, you are the Ku Klux Klan if you deny to every sort of inverted people their parody of a marriage.
Same with divorce. Difficult at first, then easier, then on demand.
We should work in the same way, eroding the enemy’s field a step at a time. This is why the “heartbeat bill” is a positive step.
Yes, I know: the unborn child born of rape, or incest, is no less innocent than all the others, and such laws obviously invite a flood of false rape accusations. But the idea here is to chip at abortion from every possible way, to have people talk about it, and to try to have this and other bills sent to the Supreme Court to, hopefully, overturn Roe vs Wade one day.
It would be wrong, I think, to insist on ideologically pure legislation that does not get approved. We should learn from the strategic stance of our enemies. Even if this law actually is a law about… abortion, it is clearly a law that will undermine it.
The same should be done on so-called homo marriages, civil partnerships, and the like.
Demolish the evil one little step at a time; chip away at it; make it part of the conversation; and when the time comes, strike the definitive blow.
I would like to say two words about the controversy raised by a Mr Akin’s answer to the letter, mentioned here many times, inviting the Bishops to declare Pope Francis a heretic and depose him, unless he recants from his many heresies.
The point that Mr Akin makes is that Pope Francis cannot really be called heretical, because the tenets of the faith he so manifestly denies are (merely!) infallible doctrines as opposed to dogmatic truths. AKA Catholic does, as always, an excellent and very charitable work of dissection of this point.
My point is, building on his reflection, a different one.
No other generation of Catholics (at least before V II) would have even dreamed of having such discussions when deciding what the appropriate course of action is. Nor would they have cared of what this or that canonical text says. They weren’t blind. Therefore, they could look at reality when reality was staring them in the face.
When Pope Marcellinus sacrificed on the altar of Roman gods, they did not wonder what canon law states should exactly happen in that exact case. They did not quibble about the fact that Marcellinus had not denied any formal dogma, “merely” contravened a commandment. They did not try to walk around, above, below and through reality trying to find a way allowing them not to call reality for what it is.
They had faith. They acted on it.
I have stated many times here, and repeat today, that I do not care a straw for the technical, canonical law definition of what a heresy is, because this is not what my salvation depends upon. Heretic is who heretic does, and in the common parlance and common sense (and in reality, which is so much broader than the quibbles of theologians) Francis is a heretic, because he goes head on against the truths of the Church.
On this, I think we all agree, Mr Akin included. It follows that the letter to the Bishops makes perfect sense, because it is a perfectly realistic reaction to a reality plainly in front of us.
The absurdity of the legalistic denial that Francis a heretic is easily demonstrated. Let us imagine that Francis would promulgate a modification of the canonical rules on heresy, stating that a Pope can only be proclaimed a formal heretic if he solemnly proclaims his heresy dressed in a Muslim garb, on a Friday, from the top of a Minaret, at least 100 feet high. Let us, further, imagine that Francis would proclaim that Muslims and Christians worship the same God, and he did so solemnly, dressed in a Muslim garb, from a Minaret, 90 feet high. Would then Mr Akin, and all the other FrancisQuibblers, say that Francis is, therefore, not a heretic according to this or any other definition?
Reality comes first. A heretical Pope is staring you in the face, with a middle finger raised against you. If you don’t see this you are part of the problem.
The first duty of the bishops is towards Christ and His Church. Even if the instruments of canon law did not allow (which AKA Catholic shows not to be the case) to act in case of manifest heresy, the obligation to act would exist anyway. The Church has always acted according to the principle that where the legal instruments at the disposal of the clergy are not sufficient to do what is necessary to do for the good of the Church, ecclesia supplet, as we have seen in the case of the SSPX or, more to the point, in the case of Marcellinus.
That such discussions take place in the first place is a grave indication of the degradation of the sensus catholicus all over the West.
We will be remembered as the people who allowed a clearly heretical Pope to be manifestly heretic day in and day out, for years, whilst discussing his intentions, his translators, his moods, the atmospheric conditions inside aeroplanes, the cultural differences with Argentina, his grasp of English, Italian, Latin, and Spanish, and his digestion.
Open your eyes, for heaven’s sake.
A heretical Pope is staring at you, his face full of hate for us and the Church, with his middle finger raised against you.
This is no time for quibbling.
Evil Clown travels to Bulgaria, and finds resistance in a Country known for being, erm, Christian (albeit of the Schismatic sort).
But this post is not about this. This post is to tell you that my adrenaline level got a sudden spike when this tool had the guts to remind his Bulgarian audience that they were persecuted for their Christian belief under Communism, and the reflections that such adrenaline spike prompted in this poor, but devout, intelligence.
Funny that Francis should say that: the very man who has condemned the Chinese Catholics to ferocious repression, out of hatred for the Church and desire to further every collectivist regime as much as he can!
I truly wonder what kind of parents gave birth to such monster; then it seems to me that it is difficult to come to such a level of hatred for the Church, unless this hatred has been nurtured from the early years in a deeply anti-clerical, anti-capitalist environment based on hatred for everything that is sacred and envy for those who have more, the two main ingredients of socialism and communism. I actually remember reading that Francis’ father (provided he really is) complained that he had to leave Italy because of his “antifascist” persuasion. Which, believe this Italian, would stink massively, if true, of a real anticlerical, communist or socialist refuse.
So what happens is this: Francis acts on his hatred for the Church every day God allows him to breathe. Then he travels around and reads speeches largely written for him by others. The contradictions do not bother him. This is a man not bothered by anything, a moral vacuum of astonishing depth, fuelled by his own hatred for everything that is good and holy; a hatred, not unlikely, fostered in him since childhood by his evil parents.
I also notice here, because at this point things start to add up rather neatly, that Francis boasted of lying to his mother about his seminary studies, which his mother financed thinking he was studying medicine. Now let us set aside for a moment the staggering admission of such lies, to one’s own widowed mother; let us reflect, instead, on why he would (besides the fact that he is a liar by nature) lie to his mother about his chosen path.
Would not every devoted mother be pleased, or at least very much at peace, with his son’s desire to give his life to Christ? Would she not gladly make sacrifices to allow him to reach his goal? Could it not be that Francis’ lies to her were due not only to the knowledge of the strong refusal that such a choice would have met with her anticlerical mother, but also to the obvious accusation of stunning hypocrisy and shameless scrounging of an entire existence that the mother would have levelled at her son? Is it not so, that more and more pieces of the satanic puzzle that is Jorge Bergoglio start to fall neatly into place and, whilst anecdotal and sketchy (once again: very little detail about the family. One wonders why?) give a fully logical, credible picture?
Truly, if the sins of the fathers shall be visited upon the sons, this guy is the product of a seriously evil stock.
The incoming World Youth Day in Panama promises to be a fail of epic proportions. Facing with the necessity of having to admit the scale of the problem – probably because it sounds better to find some excuse beforehand than during the event -, the guy in charge told us something of earth-shattering importance: it’s because young people “in Europe and North America” are at school.
You don’t say?!
Some questions come to mind:
- If the genial FrancisOfficials did not know school is open, how can they claim they know the first two things about youth?
- If the FrancisOfficials did knew school is open, why would they encourage the youth to skip useful school days without necessity?
- Schools are closed in “North America and Europe”. What about Central America, that is: Panama and surrounding Countries? And what about South America? Brazil, or Pope Francis’ own home Country, Argentina?
- Let us go back to the old (and, if you ask me, wrong anyway) World Youth Days of JP II’s and Benedict XVI’s rather inglorious Pontificates: were they held with schools open? If yes, how come they attracted (wrongly, as I think) huge crowds? And if they were held with schools closed, how is now suddenly smart to spend a lot of money for people who need to go to school?
I think the truth is much simpler than that, and does not require a long reflection, either.
No one has a use for Francis’ satanical exercises in heresy and demolition of Catholicism. The real Catholics abhor him. The fake Catholics ignore him. All the others are now just embarrassed by this old, lewd guy.
And oh, before I forget: the logo on top is the official logo of the initiative. It truly looks like a serpent about to swallow the Cross.
These people are of Satan.
As the “women’s march” is in a deep crisis due to the rabid antisemitism of some of the leftist bitches organising it, the 2019 March for Life take place today in Washington, and we know it will be glorious once again.
We see here two worlds clashing against each other. On one hand, the decent people able to see what is right beyond the modern worship of feminism and the easy way out of legality. On the other hand, the enemies of everything that is good and wholesome and beautiful and sacred, taking to the street to demand not only the right to kill their babies in the womb, but the dismantling of every facet of that wonderful, God-willed order called the Patriarchate.
Man and woman God made them.
Witches aren’t mentioned.
Cardinal Wuerl really must think we are all stupid.
Confronted with the evidence that he knew about the allegations against Cardinal McCarrick as early as 2004, he now claims to have… forgotten about it at some point after 2006.
Let us see all the way in which this is atrocious.
Firstly, it is a blatant lie: you just don’t forget that a Cardinal – and a US one at that – has been credibly accused of abuse.
Secondly, if it were true it would show the astonishing hardness of heart of a man for whom a Cardinal being accused of child abuse is something of so little consequence that it gets forgotten.
Thirdly, if if were to be true it would prove that the man is really dumb, not being able to connect dots and observe the man in his own environment- the two must have met fairly frequently – even after being informed of his proclivities. At that point, the eyes of one who wants to see would be wide open, and I can’t imagine that other credible sources were not available to him.
Theregore, the man is either a liar, or an evil man, or a simpleton.
Two and three are, however, obviously absurd. The truth is that the man who now claims forgetfulness is the one rumoured to have been nicknamed “Donna” in the Seminary. Do I see a pattern here?
This pathetic denial is beyond disgraceful. Who does the man think he is, Pope Francis? And by the way, was he not supposed to resign? Has he announced the date of his departure? Or has he… forgotten?
I can’t follow all the details about all the Cardinals now in trouble, and that for sheer lack of time; but if this guy has lied to the authorities in a high-profile child abuse investigation he might soon be swimming in a sea of excrement .
When he resigns, may I suggest Father Guarnizo as his successor; yes, this is the man Wuerl persecuted for explaining to a couple of lesbians some facts of life, and who had to move to Russia because, clearly, Wuerl and his US colleagues had a well-functioning memory at that time.
Watch out, Donna.
This may well be, as far as the job is concerned, the last nail in your shameless coffin.
It seems that being called Catholic is getting more and more difficult for, erm, Catholics. Look at this Remnant article.
We are not discussing fine theological points here. This is 1-0-1. From Cantate Domino ( Council of Florence):
“The most Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews and heretics and schismatics, can have a share in life eternal; but that they will go into the “eternal fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41), unless before death they are joined with Her; and that so important is the unity of this ecclesiastical body that only those remaining within this unity can profit by the sacraments of the Church unto salvation, and they alone can receive an eternal recompense for their fasts, their almsgivings, their other works of Christian piety and the duties of a Christian soldier. No one, let his almsgiving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the Name of Christ, can be saved, unless he remain within the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church.”
This is as clear as the sun. Note the usage of the passive: unless one is joined with the Church, when he dies he will separated from God forever.
Every theological book that does not originate from Vatican II, or perhaps, in the other direction, from the Feneeyites, will tell you that, certainly, many Protestants are saved, and some Heathens are saved, too. Those to whom God has given the grace to merit to be with Him in Paradise are joined with the Church before death. They are joined, that is, by the One who can do everything, and can instill in the heart of the Protestant, and in some cases even of the Heathen, a desire and love for Truth that allows him to collaborate with God’s Grace in such a way that he will be joined to the Church before death, the Lord mercifully overcoming their lack of knowledge of the actual, factual Truth. Everybody who is saved dies a Catholic, irrespective of what his official belonging is. Conversely, in Paradise there are only Catholics.
Let us read Pope Pius IX in Quanto conficiamur moerore (emphasis mine) :
“And here, beloved Sons and Venerable Brothers, We should mention again and censure a very grave error in which some Catholics are unhappily engaged, who believe that men living in error, and separated from the true faith and from Catholic unity, can attain eternal life. Indeed, this is certainly quite contrary to Catholic teaching. It is known to Us and to you that they who labor in invincible ignorance of our most holy religion and who, zealously keeping the natural law and its precepts engraved in the hearts of all by God, and being ready to obey God, live an honest and upright life, can, by the operating power of divine light and grace, attain eternal life, since God who clearly beholds, searches, and knows the minds, souls, thoughts, and habits of all men, because of His great goodness and mercy, will by no means suffer anyone to be punished with eternal torment who has not the guilt of deliberate sin. But, the Catholic dogma that no one can be saved outside the Catholic Church is well-known; and also that those who are obstinate toward the authority and definitions of the same Church, and who persistently separate themselves from the unity of the Church, and from the Roman Pontiff, the successor of Peter, to whom ‘the guardianship of the vine has been entrusted by the Savior,’ (Council of Chalcedon, Letter to Pope Leo I) cannot obtain eternal salvation. The words of Christ are clear enough: ‘And if he will not hear the Church, let him be to thee as the heathen and publican’ (Matthew 18:17); ‘He that heareth you, heareth Me; and he that dispeth you, despiseth Me; and he that dispiseth Me, despiseth Him that sent Me’ (Luke 10:16); ‘He that believeth not shall be condemned’ (Mark 16:16); ‘He that doth not believe, is already judged’ (John 3:18); ‘He that is not with Me, is against Me; and he that gathereth not with Me, scattereth’ (Luke 11:23). The Apostle Paul says that such persons are ‘perverted and self-condemned’ (Titus 3:11); the Prince of the Apostles calls the ‘false prophets… who shall bring in sects of perdition, and deny the Lord who bought them: bringing upon themselves swift destruction’ (2 Peter 2:1).”
From the same encyclical letter:
“God forbid that the children of the Catholic Church should even in any way be unfriendly to those who are not at all united to us by the same bonds of faith and love. On the contrary, let them be eager always to attend to their needs with all the kind services of Christian charity, whether they are poor or sick or suffering any other kind of visitation. First of all, let them rescue them from the darkness of the errors into which they have unhappily fallen and strive to guide them back to Catholic truth and to their most loving Mother who is ever holding out her maternal arms to receive them lovingly back into her fold. Thus, firmly founded in faith, hope, and charity and fruitful in every good work, they will gain eternal salvation.”15]
Again, very clear.
Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus is a saying that reflects Catholic dogma. It needs to be preached and defended by every Catholic. Obviously, it also needs to be properly understood, and those who give of it a wrong interpretation need to be gently thought about its true meaning; but I honestly do not think that the problem of modern times is that the dogma is misinterpreted because it taken too literally. Rather, the climate in which we live is one is which the dogma is ignored because lurv.
Really, we are living in strange and disturbing times. And at the root of them is not father Martin, or Pope Francis.
It is the Second Vatican Council; the greatest rebellion against God, from the very core of the Church, in two thousand years.
I was browsing in my library yesterday, and spent some time in the company of that excellent book, Fulton Sheen’s “Life of Christ”.
The first chapter is titled, apparently predictably but actually not so, “the only person ever pre-announced”. It has a long list of testimonies not only from the Judaic, but from the non-Jewish world (from the Romans to the Greek, to the Chinese and the Japanese; and we can add the Druids), of the Saviour that was to come.
I think we tend to lose sight of some aspects of Christianity at times. To us, Christ’s divinity is a given. We were (most of the readers of this blog, very probably) given it almost together with the maternal milk. It was, and is, part of the landscape like the sun and the moon. Also, some of us grew up in an environment in which Christianity was the omnipresent norm, only interrupted by the strange presence of the occasional Jew here and there, and with even atheists fully embedded in – and many times, fully approving of – the moral system of Christianity.
Still, as adults, and in a changed landscape, we need to recover, or to nurture, a more logical approach to Christianity; one that will help us, when the occasion arises, to actually explain Christianity in a logical way to the staggering number of non-Christians around us.
Christ is, in fact, the only person ever pre-announced. No one, ever, predicted the advent of a paedophile, blood-thirsty bedouin who would suddenly create a religion that is, in fact, nothing more than a monstrous deformation of the true one. And these announcements are the more impressive, because they were spread outside of the Jewish world eagerly awaiting for the Messiah. Among others, think of Cicero, who dies 43 years before Our Lord’s earthly birth, and knew about him already.
The argument for Christianity – a superfluous one in my youth, but an urgent one in these disgraceful times – should rest on a robust logical basis instead of relying on the “Jesus loves you” and “share the joy” platitudes one hears all the time in church and outside.
I suggest to all those who have not done it already to read this book. Fulton Sheen’s writing style is extremely easy to digest and at the same time exact and compelling. This is not your typical theology book. This is Christianity for the masses.
God knows we need something like this in these disgraceful times.
So, what has the Gaynod just given us?
Firstly, it has given us the pathetic spectacle of a bunch of sad puppets of a mad Argentinian dictator going around with their rhetoric of “listening to the young” and “walking together”, abdicating to their role as shepherds as they extol the virtues of being, actually, clueless, because not instructed by those who should do so. Gayrdinal Tagle actually choking the tears as he explains to us the shocking revelation of talking to young people really says it all. Freddie Mercury himself would have considered the spectacle too gay for words.
Secondly, it has given us the – broadly speaking – utter failure of the vast push on perverted behaviour that was, most certainly, intended as the main scope of the entire exercise. Not, mind, because of the faint meowing of those bishops who, at times, still remember that they are supposed to be Catholics and are, at least, straight; but rather because in the current climate of widespread revolt against HomoChurch, the Evil Clown has deemed it more expedient to postpone that for a bit. This is what he customarily does, by the way, as we have seen with the first Gaynod he called: he does not dare to run too big a risk, and is content with demolishing the Church one bit at a time if there are no feasible alternatives. Yes, there is in the final document some faint echo of what the Synod was supposed to become, but it isn’t much and it’s not worth reading anyway.
Thirdly, the Gaynod has given us another glimpse of the stupidity and effeminacy of this sad bunch of cretins: the blood-curling video of them “spontaneously” “dancing” at the end of the Gaynod actually perfectly describes how these people see themselves: a bunch of old men without anything to say, much less to teach; conscious of how deeply despised they are; unable to understand what their role and function is supposed to be; ashamed of their position of primacy in the Church, a position they know perfectly unjustified; terrified of doing anything that could seem stiff or unkind; and trying to be “relevant” by actually pretending to be what they are not: young, and connected to the people.
What a bunch of sad, old queens. It is as if the old men at the Politburo had danced with a bunch of factory workers in order to show that they are near to the Proletariat; only, even those corrupted individuals were far too intelligent, and far too manly, for something like that.
Forget the Gaynod in all, but the mockery of those who deserve to be mercilessly punished for their dereliction of duty, when not utter betrayal of all they should stand for. Focus on what is important now.
Over to you, Attorney Generals of the United States of America.
Let us get on with the serious business.
Great news from the otherwise predictably stupid document closing the predictably stupid Synod: the official FrancisCertification of Catholic Internet content is in the works!
This is really, really funny. The Catholic Fagarchy currently in power plans to reveal to all Catholics worldwide which sites are officially certified as “FrancisCatholic”. It is not known yet whether pictures of naked men will have to be there (the involvement of Fathers Rosica and Martin has not been detailed), but there is no doubt a substantial amount of FrancisGayness will be a requirement for the not-so-coveted certification.
Aleteia, Patheos, Crux and all the other rosewater “wannabe Catholic” sites – which are correctly Catholic only by mistake, or on occasion of important festivities – will, no doubt, proudly show their “FrancisCertificate” in a prominent spot of their homepage, thus outing themselves as toxic to every Internet surfer sincerely interested in Catholicism after a short period of orientation about the Catholic sites available.
We – those who take Catholicism seriously – will soon have our own “Not FrancisCertified” logo, also prominently displayed on our homepage. Ideally, some Gaynisterium at the Vatican will run a list of sites and blogs officially considered “fake”, thus greatly increasing the prestige of those authentically catholic sites and blogs therein contained. Not sure it will happen, but one can hope.
This will be great, great fun.
Really, the Gayrdinals and Gayshops have shot themselves in the bra with this. If they call authentically Catholic sites “Certified Catholic” they will have to explain why those same sites relentlessly attack Francis & his high-pitched troops of Gay Deceivers. If – as it is far more likely – they don’t, they will expose themselves as fake, subversive and, most of all, horribly stupid to all those really interested in Catholicism.
Look, dear Gayrdinals: the time when people cared a straw about what you considered Catholic has long gone, and it has gone exactly because of your demonstrated, appalling lack of Catholicism. As things stand, being “approved” by you means being suspected of paedophilia or, at least, sodomy by the right thinking crowd.
But you don’t get it, because you live in a stiletto-plagued, Catholic-free zone.
So go on.
Put us in some “condemned list”.
Make my day.
And in the end, he did it.
Francis broke the last taboo of political discourse and called his Catholic enemies friends or enablers of Hitler.
I thought calling “walls” un-Christian was the bottom, but the man somehow manages to find a new low every couple of weeks.
For the record, populism in various guises gave us Andrew Jackson, Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan. It also gave us, in a way, Joan of Arc. But in the end, it is not about labels.
The populist movement we are witnessing now is the result of artificial, bonkers policies which a limited cabal of elected politicians is trying to impose on their voters. These policies are so out of touch with common sense, so imbued of a mixture of kindergarden do-goodism and surrender (for a price) to globalist enterprises that it is no surprise at all that, at some point, the voters start to wake up and react to the madness.
They also see very clearly where the interest of their alleged “betters” lie. In Germany, former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder accepts an extremely well paid job for a company controlled by Gazprom. In the UK, failed wannabe fag Nick Clegg cashes in his check with Big Globalist Brother and takes a job as PR Honcho at Facebook. The elected politicians will ruthlessly lick the boots of big corporations, preparing a golden retirement for themselves whilst they ruin our Countries and threaten our Christian Civilisation. Merkel, always the hypocrite, says when she retires she wants to open a restaurant. We shall see.
Francis does not get this, because he is dumb. He has strained all his scarce neurons in his youth learning a destructive ideology and is now unable to see past it, not even after decades of failure. And he hates you, he hates you as a Catholic with a hatred I bet not even five and a half years of insults can convey.
You are the Hitler, Frankie dear. You, not we, are the menace to Christian civilisation. Leave Trump, Salvini and Orban alone, do us a favour and retire back to Argentina, where you will be able to play armchair revolutionary all you want until Satan comes by to collect you.
Hitler, my foot.
We already knew this as a rumour. But now Cardinal Mueller himself has confirmed:
- Francis did order Mueller to stop the investigation against Cardinal Murphy O’Connor
- With sacrilegious callousness, he forced the Cardinal to interrupt Mass and go to him immediately to receive his orders.
The two points exemplify Francis’ character in an admirable way. On the one hand, the willed sabotage of investigations for homopaedobehaviour or cover up of such behaviour, whenever these investigations concern people belonging to his own Mafia.
On the other hand, the shocking lack of faith, with the man clearly considering the celebration of Mass nothing more than a time-consuming formality that must be followed to keep deceiving the dumb, but can be not only discarded, but interrupted every time the man has, actually, something to say to someone. The Cardinal was, also, celebrating for a group of Germans. Therefore, the affront happened in public, though we don’t know to what extent the Germans present actually realised the Pope is actually forcing a cardinal to interrupt a mass because he wants to speak to him.
I also see a further profile here. In my eyes, Francis’ angry summoning of Cardinal Mueller had a subtext that is never mentioned, but is there nevertheless: the message “how do you dare to investigate my friends!!??”, so clear that he probably had no need to even make it explicit.
Boorish, complicit, shameless, and totally faithless.
Francis described in one line.
Rabid pussy hat feminist accuses excellent future Supreme Court Justice of having – at some point, she does actually not remember when, and for some reason never told anyone for 30 years – kinda, sorta have tried to force himself upon her.
This should be, apparently, reason enough to postpone a vote until people who have just said they are not interested in this rubbish (read = the FBI) have made a complete, “Mueller-long” investigation on the matter. Interesting concept of democracy, these Democrats.
The accuser – or, as some Democrats hilariously has said, “survivor” – was, at the time of the accused “assault”, not exactly a shy wallflower.
Rather, she appears to have been – and this is only limiting ourselves to the image she accepted to have published of herself – a drunken, racist slut and sexual predator of younger boys.
Oh my, that makes for some reading. The arrogance, the entitlement, the casual racism, the drunkenness to the point of unconsciousness celebrated as a cool trait of the rich, white girls, the “exploration” of male schools for male prey (no doubt, no difficult to get; but every sluts know that very well) and the celebration of the unavoidable successes really give a vivid, realistic picture of what kind of girl the “survivor” was at the time of the alleged assault to her virginal innocence.
Not quite surprising, rich entitled slut ended up marrying one of those emasculated feminist idiots comfortable with being (let us say a number at random; apologies if I am being cautious) the twenty-second prick she invited in the very popular space between her legs; and, in the course of those counselling marriage session these people normally have before divorcing, appeared to remember, out of the fog of nights of drunkenness to the point of unconsciousness, that a successful judge had, once, at some point, kinda sorta, tried to abuse her.
More than five dozen other women confirm the integrity of the man. But hey, a feminist pussy hat slut must count more than them, and destroy a man’s reputation based on her drunken fog allegations.
Congratulations, Senator Feinstein & Co. You have managed to make Venezuela look like a country of impeccable political costumes.
We are now informed that the slut will (surprise!) not appear in front of the Senate to avoid complete and utter demolition in front of the entire nation. The vote will go on next Thursday without further delay and the outcome is now, if I am an accurate judge of the situation, more predictable than it was before.
I hope Kavanaugh sues this woman for her last dime.
Her “White privilege” has gone on for long enough.
Pretending that nothing is happening, Francis has released a new Apostolic Constitution regulating the way synods work. The new Papal Excrementation is called Episcopalis Communion. (EC)
As is to be expected in the case of a tool like the disgracefully reigning Pontiff, it is a subversive document .
The most important aspect (and, again, typical of Francis’ arrogance) is the idea that a synodal document, once released and published, should now be considered part of the Ordinary Magisterium. In a word, Francis is trying to confer more authority to the heretical blather that is sure to come out of the two next synods.
The problem with that is that no heresy can ever, pace Pope Francis, be part of the Ordinary Magisterium. The man is basically ordering the Catholic world to believe that 2+2=5 once he has published the new addition on the Osservatore Romano.
The thinking reflects the same attitude we see in everything Francis does: ignore the criticisms, pretend everything is fine and go on full steam towards the wall.
It will not fly.
One small obstacle for Francis is that EC introduces a new, dangerous element in the next papal heresies, and no Cowardinals a’ la Burke will be able to say that the new document is only a private reflection of the Pope without any demand that magisterial value be assigned to it. This will require of Burke and Co. to invent new excuses for their unavoidable, practically already guaranteed inaction. I am sure they are already working on it, and I trust they will find something the Pollyannas who still support them will be only too happy to believe.
A much bigger obstacle is the fact that as Francis goes deeper into obvious heretical territory, he makes is more likely that his “teaching” will be blatantly ignored by most bishops, and rapidly put aside when he (please, Lord!) finally croaks. The fact is, you can’t just impose heresy on one billion Catholics and thousands of bishops. They will be too weak to oppose him, but they never be strong (or interested) enough to enforce obvious heresy. I am, I am sure, not the only one who notices that the current Pope seems to be the most ignored in the V II era in the homilies at mass, with every half decent priest busily trying to make you forget who is the current Pope.
The biggest obstacle, though, will not come from the inside of the Church. It will come from the small army of prosecutors about to reduce this Pontificate into very finely chopped mincemeat. When the synods take place, the outcry from the current investigations will completely drown any heretical cacophony coming from the Evil Clown and his cohort of demonised homoprelates.
Only an incompetent ass like Francis can believe that the current scandal is soon going to die. What will happen is that it will gather even more strength in the months to come, creating a tidal wave that will cover this pontificate in mud in such a way that this will be the only thing seven billion people think whenever they hear the words “Pope Francis”.
The man has put himself squarely against every true Catholic on the planet and almost all anticlerical forces in the press. Some will try to minimise his troubles, but there is no way they will resist the outcry caused by the violation of the last taboo (paedophilia) coupled with the greatest temptation for the press (attacking the Church).
If Francis had a properly functioning brain, he would reflect that the world press hated Trump to a man, and still could not avoid giving him a huge resonance box. There is no way Francis can escape the tsunami, and it does not matter how much he pretends that all is fine.
It fills this old heart with joy to see how Francis’ PervChurch is now retreating on all fronts after the pathetic, completely asinine attempt to counter Vigano’ with silence from above and slander from below has gloriously – though very predictably – backfired.
Every day we have more signs of a crumbling wall. It is as if Francis and his old cronies were trying to hold the huge, crumbling wall with their own backs. Hey, Frankie: holding walls is (cough) “not Christian”, eh?
We are now informed that Cardinal Wuerl is going to fly to Rome to discuss his future with His Evil Clowness. Wait: was he not there last week, or thereabout? Has he not presented his resignation three years ago anyway? Oh, I understand… what has changed is that the first time Francis was still thinking that it was possible to hold the “nothing to see here” line, but now he has realised that Wuerl must be jumped from the window; therefore, he tries to do it in as dignified and PR effective a way as possible.
It will be another epic fail. At this point there is nothing Francis can do to take the stink of shit out of him. His pathetic attempts – which will come, be assured of that – to say that he was not informed will be met with rage and laughter, particularly on the back of his defence of Bishop Barros and his stonewalling after Vigano’s accusations.
Decent Catholics now root for the Attorneys General all over the US. The time for mafia commissions investigating the mafia has gone. Let all be uncovered, let those who need to go to jail go to jail, let priests, Bishops and, if appropriate, Cardinals see a jail cell from inside. It will be a much more effective remedy against the satanic homopaedomafia than one thousand “internal” committees with “lay participation”.
And please, please: let this, in time, become a RICO matter; then it seems clear enough that what was at play here was a net of powerful people promoting each other to protect each other.
The solution for PervChurch is not “introspection”.
It is carpet bombing.
You will need some prayer before seeing this. It is the astonishing tale of satanic cruelty, perpetrated for decades, to deaf children in both Italy and Argentina, by the same priests shuffled from one Continent to another and allowed to keep abusing children wherever they are sent.
Besides the astonishing evil showed by Don Piccoli, even in his now apparently rather deranged state, what stuns here is the concrete possibility that these abuses are continuing to this very day, and the even more probable possibility that they have been occurring within the 20 years of the statute of limitation, with the Italian justice inactive and the Vatican (this means: Pope Francis) actively covering this up.
Concerning Francis, the cover up appears to be confirmed by a letter from Archbishop Becciu, who states he has discussed the matter with him, with measures being examined.
In pure Francis-style, nothing happened.
Francis can, in this matter, not saying that Becciu did not inform him properly. He spoke with emissaries of the victims himself, with pictures and witnesses proving it.
One perfectly reads the mind of the Evil Clown: past investigations covered by the statute of limitation and no new investigations currently ongoing, ergo: who cares a straw if children have been atrociously abused up to a few years ago and possibly are still abused.
Who is he to judge?
Pray for the poor children. Reflect that it is only the advancement of cures for deafness that allowed them to denounce the abuses of which they were victims.
Pray, in your charity, also for the criminal priests involved and the Evil Clown who clearly protected them. We will also go to our judgment one day, and we do not want the devil to get one more soul than God has decreed he should get.
And now if you excuse me, I feel sick.
I might have lost something, but last time I looked the Attorney Generals of the States of New York, New Jersey and New Mexico had announced a sweeping investigation concerning all the activities of all the Catholic dioceses in their own State concerning the dealing with abuse cases. I do not doubt that more States will follow.
I wonder if Francis is so stupid that he does not understand that at this point there is nothing he can do to stop the road roller. However, Francis’ problem is now not only one of understanding, but one of complicity.
As the various investigations involve and (not unlikely) destroy people like Wuerl, “Bad Tobin” and Farrell – all of them prime candidates for the road roller; all of them Cardinals; the last two given the red hat by Francis! – more and more people will be tempted to ease their burden with both the US justice and the public opinion by revealing the involvement of the Vatican in the cover ups, and the indirect encouragement of illegal behaviour put in place by looking the other way and pretending it never happened, as it was obviously the case with Francis and McCarrick.
Furthermore, if (and I am eagerly awaiting the day) things go so far that RICO charges are brought against several Prelates, it is very reasonable to assume that the one or other will start to sing like a canary bird just to avoid dying in jail, revealing everything about a net of protection of homopaedopriests straddling the Atlantic Ocean and going all the way to Rome. Even a man as stupid and as far away from reality like Francis would, at that point, understand that he is finished as a religious figure whether he abdicates or not. I wonder whether the likes of Paglia and Coccopalmerio enjoy diplomatic immunity? And what happens to Francis is he abdicates and comes back to be a normal bishop? Will he be arrested and estradited to the United States as a member of an organised criminal organisation?
Be it as it may, I see a huge road roller now starting to move; and whilst it will take years before it has completed its work, the fallout will start impacting the Vatican very soon. The investigations will provide wonderful career opportunities for several AGs, opening to them a possible path to US Senate seat, gubernatorial appointments, perhaps one day even more! There is no way the States involved will let this fall to help the liberal narrative or in exchange of some short-term favour. This are the investigation of a lifetime.
Francis, who was so stupid that he went on record saying “I will not say a single word on this” after Vigano’s accusations and surrounded himself with obvious homos like Ricca and (make no mistake) Paglia and Coccopalmerio, will find it very difficult to persuade anyone that he is anything better than a miserable, godless scoundrel. He dug his trench himself, now it will be very difficult to get out of it; the liberal press may try to let the scandal go away, but with several AGs working on this the probabilities are very little that the road roller does not roll directly over Francis’ belly.
The road roller will very likely flatten this Pontificate to a thin sheet of excrement.
I wonder when Francis gets it.
I’d love to see his face when he does.
As I am, like everyone, digesting the scope of the events, I would like to offer some reflections about some issues related to Archbishop Vigano’s historic j’accuse: 1. why now, 2. what now and 3. why this, and not the rest, has become an existential threat for Francis’ Pontificate.
Archbishop Vigano’ was the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States from 2011 to 2016. He had more information than most. He might have been approached by the police, or he might have been advised to release an affidavit in anticipation of such an approach. It is easy to think that he was abundantly disgusted by Francis’ behaviour, but did not find the strength (remember: Archbishop = coward) to either go public with this or, more likely, leak the story outside; something, by the way, which would not have had anywhere near the devastating effect it will have now.
My first take (and we will likely know more in the near future) is that the man got so enraged when he read the latest, hypocritical Francis’ statement that he decided that enough is enough and he would blow the whistle. However, the very fact that this is a declaration under oath leads me to think that this is, again, a move meant either to react or to anticipate questions that have been, or would be posed to him as a person informed about the facts.
I am pleased to see that the man has some basic decency, albeit I notice that the current scandal allows him to attack with the minimum of danger to his own position. Still, as my estimation of the current average archbishop goes, this one seems to score above average.
I think one of the two has happened: either the Archbishop (who, methinks, lives in Rome and is in any way certainly not isolated and in contact with many of his colleagues) has informed others of his intentions and knows of others who will follow up on his accusations (not unlikely, if you reflect about the amount of credible allegations of cover up for his friends and allies that a man so stupid and so arrogant like Francis must have left around in five and a half year of Pontificate); or he has decided to go with this alone and allow event to unfold as they may, again knowing that his speaking out loud, without warning and without the time to even threaten or demote him, is way less dangerous now than it would have been years ago. It boggles the mind that the Vatican leaks like a sieve, and explosive information like this one does not find its way to, say, Breitbart or even (if you really want to play it hard) an anti-clerical outlet like, say, the “New Yorker”.
This is the depressing part of the whole story: Francis has been offending Christ, the Church and Her Sacraments in every possible way for years, and no Archbishop besides the retired Gracida called for his deposition; besides, Gracida himself called for his deposition as invalidly elected, not because of his actions as a Pope.
This tells me that in today’s Church Christ is of so little consequence, and the world of such great importance, that a Pope who has offended Christ in a way infinitely more grave than every offence made to man (we need to repeat this, lest we lose all perspective) might be brought down not by his countless heretical statements, but by his inability to comply with the standards of the world. The fact, I add, that the standard of the world in matter of paedophilia are quite OK (those in matter of homosexuality, which is at the root of the issue, clearly aren’t) does not make the consideration less sad.
If Francis resigns on this (his pontificate is, by now, destroyed anyway) history will remember that a Pope able to stun the Catholic world with years of constant heretical statements was brought down by… his cover-up of sexual scandals.
It seems that the world Francis loves so much wants to kill him with its own weapon.
God works in mysterious ways.
Francis might now abdicate, or not. Cardinals and Archbishops might finally find the courage to ask him to step aside, or not.
But make no mistake: this Pontificate is now officially nuked. Francis might decide to preside over the heap of ashes until he croaks, but his ability to damage the Church in the eyes of every decent Catholic is now damaged beyond repair. There is no way to recover from this, though I think he is so stupid he does not get it.
Be gone, Francis; and if not, be your pontificate totally incinerated. To you we say, as (allegedly) that great Pope of the past said to other heretics:
Ab Illo Benedicaris In Cuius Honore Cremaberis
“Be blessed by him in whose honour you shall be burned”
