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”
I never thought I would see this in my lifetime.
Archbishop Vigano’ asks for the Pope’s abdication, together with the resignation of:
This is not an interview. This is an eleven page affidavit, that is: a declaration given under oath.
The Archbishop’s revelations are so explosive that not even the adjective “explosive” is sufficient to describe them. They are very detailed, up to the date when the Archbishop informed Francis of McCarrick’s long history of abuse (in 2013!! Nowhere to hide, Frankie boy!).
Read the article. Then read it again. Cardinal Bertone is also hit by a maverick, but he is now, as McCarrick, emeritus at age 83; though I hope he will be punished strongly anyway.
I can easily imagine that other Prelates will now speak. The fact is, Francis has now been outed, and the “smoking gun” that is the accusation of no less than an Archbishop, based on his personal experience with Francis, and given under oath, makes a defence of Francis very, very difficult to mount.
Also, imagine the level of scrutiny that will be unleashed on every Cardinal and Archbishop daring to accuse the whistleblower(s) of damaging the Church and all that rubbish we have heard too often in the past.
Finally, finally, f.i.n.a.l.l.y. a member of the higher echelons has moved; and, cowards as they all are, I can easily imagine that he is the first one of a handful who will now accuse him one by one, and make his position more and more difficult. Actually, I can not imagine that the Archbishop has not agreed with others to keep the pressure up, in a sort of #metoo movement. We will see in the next days and weeks whether the Archbishop acted alone (perhaps fearing of being poisoned, and I say this in jest but not too much) or is the first one of a Demolition Brigade awaited for too long.
My dear readers, tell everyone you know that Francis must go. Scream it from the rooftops. Let you cry be heard on the Moon.
This pontificate must be incinerated.
And it will still nothing compared to the punishment awaiting this guy and his accomplices unless he, and they, repent.
This shocking photograph is from the big, fat, nuCatholic FrancisCircus called the “world meeting of families”.
No less than a Cardinal is giving no less than the keynote address.
Look for yourselves.
This is where the “dialogue with the world” ends. This is what happens when “aggiornamento” means allowing homos to enter the Seminaries. This is the unavoidable outcome when families decide that the best thing to do for them is to stay away from clergymen of every colour. This is the result when rabid pro-homo speakers, themselves wearing the habit, are invited to speak to such events.
Burn, FrancisChurch, burn.
We, the Catholics, will look at your destruction and stoke up the fire that consumes you.
Because we know that the Church is Indefectible, and when the thick strata of mud of almost 60 years of V II (now topped by the stinking manure that is the current pontificate) is removed we will see again the radiant, wonderful, Church that Christ established below it. As hard and as beautiful as a diamond, One and Holy as She has always been and will ever be, ultimately untouched by all the strata of mud (or manure) that evil men may throw over Her, as they have done often in the past and will do at times in the future, until time ends.
This stupid bunch of homos think they can persuade us that the Church has changed, that the diamond is now a vulgar stone painted in rainbow colours.
Let the picture above tell the story of what fools they are.
I didn’t have a single abusive priest or nun in 12 years of Catholic education. This horror has ownership, and the deed’s many names include Wuerl. And with Monday’s “everybody is to blame” mea non-culpa from Pope Francis, his name is on it too. Wuerl needs to resign. And the church [sic] would be better off with two retired popes and a new man absolutely dedicated to supporting the reformers, not suppressing them.
But the issue I would like to comment on today is not the details about Cardinal (for how long?) Wuerl and Pope Francis’ at the very least least stellar incompetence and stupidity.
It is the fact that five and a half years into this disgraceful Pontificate, the stupidity of the man has managed to turn against him the very icons of the secular culture whose approval he always sought. The man is the Anti-Midas: if he touches gold, it becomes shit.
The man is so stupid that he had the gall to denounce a culture of abuse and coverup in Chile, after being very publicly a part of the culture of coverup until weeks before his denunciation, and not after months of ferocious criticism. It is not only that his hypocrisy is mind-boggling; it is that his incompetence, and the incompetence of the people around him, makes a Banana Republic seem Switzerland.
When the scandal exploded, Francis did what he always does when events overcome the ability of his little brain to function: he shut up. Then he decided to still say nothing, but left the Vatican PR office to pen the most unbelievable press release, centred around the concept that only a minority of the claims were after 2002 and the Church is doing her job all right on the whole, thank you very much.
When the outrage was heard on Mars, and the fact that the Pope was still shutting up was angrily noted on Saturn, he released the Manifesto of the Banana Republic of Francislandia; which, not entirely surprisingly, stated that the remedy for Church abuse is “more solidarity”. It is like a Marxist seamless garment theory: however shitty we are, the cure for that is Socialism.
Hey, there is too much war and Capitalism in the world. This is why our priests are bad.
A snippet, chosen at random, if you don’t believe me:
Together with those efforts, every one of the baptized should feel involved in the ecclesial and social change that we so greatly need. This change calls for a personal and communal conversion that makes us see things as the Lord does. For as Saint John Paul II liked to say: “If we have truly started out anew from the contemplation of Christ, we must learn to see him especially in the faces of those with whom he wished to be identified” (Novo Millennio Ineunte, 49). To see things as the Lord does, to be where the Lord wants us to be, to experience a conversion of heart in his presence. To do so, prayer and penance will help. I invite the entire holy faithful People of God to a penitential exercise of prayer and fasting, following the Lord’s command. This can awaken our conscience and arouse our solidarity and commitment to a culture of care that says “never again” to every form of abuse.
You couldn’t make this up.
And so it happens that even the Washington Post has decided to publish an article stating that it would actually be wise if the man were to step aside; and no, such articles are never published by mistake, and they never are the opinion of one man. This is a clear editorial policy and signals that Francis has just flown out of the window at WaPo.
How the dumb have fallen. But also: how dumb did they have to be, in order to be ditched by people who would want nothing more than the continuation of Francis’ policy of destruction of everything Catholic around him.
The Dictator of the Free State of Bananas has become Pope, and it appears the homo mafia who put him there aren’t much smarter than he is, either.
Matt Walsh: “Homosexuals must be banned from the priesthood — no exception. They must be banned. I said this has to be ruthless, brutal, uncompromising and so that’s one of those steps. Every homosexual priest — banned.”
Good statement. However, homo clergy are – officially – banned from the Church already, as homosexuality is – and has always been – not compatible with the priesthood.
Only an age as stupid as the Age of Insanity can come to the point of even beginning to believe that a person afflicted by this horrible perversion may have his hands consecrated, and everything should be fine provided he is celibate. Such a thinking shows a desensitisation for perversion that is, in itself, a sign of the vast perversion of sane thinking now reigning among the mainstream.
There is no place for priests in the Church. A priest is supposed to be – as much as possible – a holy man, and a pervert can never be a holy man, as Satan is ravaging him from the inside. Would anyone think that a person with an incestuous tendency can be a priest, provided he does not sleep with his mother? Seriously, what do these people have in their supposedly Catholic heads instead of a brain?
We need priest who know to speak out, as it is very reasonable to assume a lot of priests know a lot more than the average pewsitter about the Seminary time of their now-colleagues. We need journalists to publish credible and substantiated allegations. We need to force our clergy to purge as many homo priests and bishops as possible; not out of their own courage (which they don’t have) but because of the immense pressure coming from a laity now booing them at every step, not giving them every money, insulting them with everyone they know, denouncing them as the unworthy, miserable pariah and rejects they are; we need to create a climate in which it is too risky for a homosexual to think of the Ecclesiastical career, because if the events of 2018 start even a half serious purge and cause a number of prominent heads to fall there will be no saying when the next purge comes, and what its severity will be.
Every homosexual priest, banned.
Start getting used to the idea, and promote sanity within the Church again.
This here is Politico, therefore the entire article is disgustingly biased. However, even Libtards do not manage to escape the contact with facts, at least every now and then.
In this case, the facts are impossible to ignore: Italians simply do not care a straw of what Francis says and thinks, and prefer to follow a man that is, by all his flaws, infinitely more Catholic than him: Matteo Salvini, the Italian Trump, currently Making Italy Great Again.
Francis, being a damn Argentinian Commie, does not get the nature of the Italians, one of whose more evident traits is a robust pragmatism and avoidance of bigotry. The shockingly anti-Catholic message of the Evil Clown has been ignored even before his descent to Pope Francis the Heretic. Now, that there is an extremely stark contrast between political and papal approach, they are clearly choosing sanity and common sense.
The article recognises another important fact: the opposition to Francis and the support for the Lega comes, exactly, from the strata of the population which more closely identify (at least culturally) with Catholicism. This again gives the full measure of Francis’ failure. It is not that he carries the shrinking Catholic part of the Country, but fails to make inroads among the indifferent, the tepid and the Atheists. Quite the contrary is the case!
What a sad destiny for man too stupid to understand that he has broken the toy that the Papacy has put in his hands. Had he been more nuanced, moderate, or “between the lines”, he could have JP IIed through his Pontificate, playing the conservative guy as he sabotaged the Church one little step at a time. But this is not Francis. Francis is too arrogant, too boorish, and too damn stupid to understand simple things. In the meantime, Salvini has announced the end of the madness of “Parent 1” and “Parent 2”, and is (together with his excellent Family Minister, Fontana) moving against homo adoption. Can’t remember the Pope expressing himself with the same energy and asking the same decisive action. And he is, well, the Pope.
We are now to the point that it is reasonable to state that Francis’ rants actually help Salvini get the Catholic vote.
Yes, this is the Papacy of Francis.
Just as incompetent as a South American military dictatorship. With the addition of sodomy.
I have read around the hypothesis that Pope Francis The Heretic, aka as The Evil Clown, might have dropped the bomb of the formal heresy concerning the Capital Punishment in order to deflect the attention from the paedoscandals of his various friends from the USA to Honduras.
I do think the man could be, in fact, as stupid as that.
However, there is a problem (for him): outside of our Catholic circles people really do not care what the Pope says. They do, however, care for the prosecution of pedophiles, and so does the police; at least, if you live in the UK, as long as the paedophiles aren’t Muslims.
The day after the biggest heretical bombs of the last 700 years I went to work in what used to be the Dowry of Mary, and no one said one word to me about the Pope. Nothing. Not one peep.
The Pope could dance the lambada with Cardinal Cupich in St Peter’s Square and this would get him a 10 seconds clip on the BBC between a reportage about “global warming” and an interview to some feminist bitch about the “glass ceiling”. No one who is not a (fairly interested) Catholic would care a straw after the short amusement. It would be forgotten within three minutes.
McCarrick and Co’s problems are in a different league. Prosecutors in Honduras, Chile and the United States are going to go at this and I don’t think there will be much of a cover up at least in the last two of the three States. This is going to stay with Francis for years (if, alas, he lives that long), and no heretical stunt is going to get one prosecutor off his back.
So yeah, if this was the calculation, is was just as dumb as the rest.
The astonishing (if we did not know the man) episode of formal heresy concerning the Capital Punishment teaches us some lessons that may not be pleasant but are, in my eyes, very salutary.
Pope Francis the Heretic, aka The Evil Clown, has not emerged from the earth like some satanical mushroom. He is the product of a mentality that has belittled and undermined Catholic teaching for decades.
Pope John Paul II the Not-So-Great has given us a horrible Catechism. This Catechism already had in itself the cancer cells that have now metastatised in Pope Francis The Heretic.
JP II’s Catechism does what the Church of Vatican II has done for decades: it tries to accommodate the world and to hush inconvenient truths about the Faith. The paragraphs about the Capital Punishment are an egregious example of this mentality pandering to the world instead of teaching it.
One Pope comes and says that yeah, the teaching of the Church cannot be changed; but hey, our sociology and psychology is now so much more advanced than Christ’s that we can now put this teaching in the darkest corner of the Barque of Peter; in theory, still available for use; but in practice, never to be used. Is it so surprising that, a quarter of a century later, another Pope comes and says that this unused instrument can now be thrown overboard?
Whilst there is still a huge difference between JP II’s and the Evil Clown’s approach – a difference in nature, not only in degree – no one can deny that the first paved the way for the second. JP II’s Catechism is the gateway drug to the Evil Clown’s Satanical Crack Cocaine.
Again, and as stated in the linked blog post, there is a silver lining in all this: the possibility for very many to react to this obvious heresy by embracing truth in toto rather than in the adulterated V II fashion.
Throw away your JP II Catechism, NOW! Decide that you will, from now on, have nothing to do with any watered down Catholic teaching. Plenty of traditional resources online (example here: you only need a short research) and in brick and mortar or online bookstores.
One thing will Pope Francis the Heretic teach to countless Catholics: that it is time to throw away the entire V II balderdash with it.
The Evil Clown has given us in recent days further proof that he is, at this point, completely in the hands of Satan.
Firstly, a basic concept: no Pope can change Church doctrine.
Whilst doctrine can evolve in the sense that it gets more complex as real life causes (or forces, as in the case of heresies) a refinement and deepening of the concepts already therein contained, this can never mean that something becomes something else. Obviously, it can also even less mean that something becomes the contrary of what it was before.
This is clearly obvious to every Catholic. The Problem is that this Pope is pretty much as Catholic as Satan is. Therefore, you wake up one morning and discover that Francis thinks (the operative word here is… thinks) that the constant teaching of the Church on Capital punishment can be changed.
If anyone is so dumb, or evil, to believe this, may the Lord have mercy on him.
What Francis is saying is that… Catholicism is a lie.
If the Church can “evolve” and discover that She was wrong all these 2000 years in something so important as (verbatim) life and death, this means that Christ has allowed His Church to spread evil as unchangeable Catholic teaching for 2000 years. This, in turn, means that the Church is a fraud, and everything She has ever taught is as disposable as a paper napkin (or, in case, Francis’ incontinence pads). Everyone who is evil enough to believe that Francis can change doctrine on Capital Punishment must, logically, think the same on abortion, divorce, communion, the whole lot of the Catholic Faith.
This is also, just so there is no doubt, formal (not material anymore) heresy. Francis is not giving an interpretation of existing teaching which is (though he does not understand it) objectively heretical. He is, very officially, saying that what was right is now wrong. You can’t find a better example of formal heresy than a Pope saying that the Capital Punishment is “inadmissible”, and neither you nor I nor any other Catholic with a shred of common sense and intellectual honesty is authorised to care a straw that the Pope says “inadmissible” instead of “wrong”, as the meaning and the effect are exactly the same.
At this point, this satanical individual has stopped shocking me. There is, as I have already written in the past, nothing that would let me say of him “I would have never thought that he could do this”. If it were to turn out that he celebrates black masses, or has screwed children, or his mother, I would not be surprised, either.
We have now to wait and see whether among that bunch of Reprobates calling themselves Bishops and Cardinals someone (hopefully, someone without a collection of bras) is man enough to denounce the heresy and the Pope who spreads it. I will not be holding my breath.
The silver lining in all this is this: a good Lord allowed this satanical individual to abandon himself to his folly to this point, so that even the most tepid Catholic may be given the opportunity to choose Him instead of that clown. In the darkest hour, Providence is working for us.
Pope Francis the Heretic, go to hell without me.
Let those who want to be blinded pay the price of their rebellion.
We stay on the side of two thousand years of Catholics before us.
It is absurd to let a huge number of young people congregate when it is clear many of the priests who will come in contact with them are homosexual.
This is not the time for another expensive exercise in public relations. This is time for serious self reflection followed by brutal excision of the cancer in the Church.
We have enough of public initiatives intended to very publicly undermine the Catholic message on family and chastity.
With the storm currently going on, this will only attract more criticism of the Church from the wrong people (whom Francis like) and for the wrong motives (which Francis like, too).
A Pope suspected of covering up for his own Cardinals has no place opening his mouth about the Family.
All these gatherings are, in fact, near occasions of sin and an invitation to fornication for the many young people attending.
There were no such exercises in the Time of Sanity.
Cardinal Farrell has produced himself in a piece of involuntary comedy denying that he had any inkling of the perverted inclinations of Cardinal McCarrick.
“I worked in the chancery in Washington and never, no indication, none whatsoever,” Farrell said. “Nobody ever talked to me about this and I was involved, heavily involved,”
This is just as credible as Martin Bormann saying he did not know anything about the Final Solution.
It is amusing, and a little sad, to see these people so desperately trying to deny the obvious; hiding behind a finger and hoping that, if they are very, very lucky, no one will come with substantiated accusations about them knowing. Hey, Hitler did not leave any written order about the Final Solution, either…
One can hope (and it is a very founded hope) that now that the… fag is out of the sack many more people will come out and talk not only about those who did, but also about those who knew and did nothing. As to this man, the probability that he is not part and parcel of the homo mafia or, at the very least, beholden to them is almost hilariously – if tragic in its own way – low.
Prepare yourself for more ” I knew nothing” interviews, and pray that – beside the work of the police, which for some reason linked to the american “Deep State” I happen to not trust – some serious investigative journalism is carried out on this and more and more filth comes to the light.
I assure you: what emerges might well be shocking, but it will not be unexpected at all.
This is, in fact, no irony at all.
Cardinal McCarrick, a decade-long homosexual predator, truly deserves the “Spirit of Pope Francis award” given to him by no other than Cardinal Cupich.
McCarrick did what many of these these homo scoundrels do: they go among the poor, spreading money and favours and, in the meantime, looking for uneducated, very poor victims too hungry or too afraid to speak. This is the method of the curas villeros, the priest plunging (I should say: disappearing) into the Argentinian slums in search of easy prey, who so well epitomise this dirty papacy smelling of… shit.
If you have not understood by now that Cupich had to know about the allegations against McCarrick and the payments made to shush his accusers, and that he is clearly part and parcel, and immersed up to his neck, in this system of either homosexual conduct or, at least, homosexual blackmail, you have not been playing attention. How could, otherwise, a newly-minted Cardinal have been do dumb to link his name to a man the Cardinal had to know was unofficially radioactive?
I suspect of homosexuality every priest, Bishop or Cardinal who puts social work at the centre of his “pastoral” activity, and so should you. They do this, certainly, in order to create a diversion from their loss of faith and from their betrayal of the Church, earning th eeasy applause of the world and ready-made career opportunities; but more often than not, they do this in order to find prey among the “dispossessed”.
McCorrick actually was even happy (and dumb enough, in retrospect) to assault his own seminarians instead of going lookin gin the “peripheries”; but this only shows what a scoundrel he is, not that the method does not work, or that he has himself not used it.
Congratulations, Cardinal McCorrick. You truly are an extremely worthy recipient of the “Spirit of Francis” award.
Congratulations, Cardinal Cupich. You are one of the standard bearers of the Church in which the likes of McCorrick thrives for decades, honouring and enabling them and those like them.
We should talk about this “Spirit of Francis award” more.
It is clear that, at the moment, it is all the rage.
We had in the last few days another example of the way Facebook tries to control everything you say and, in time and unavoidably, the way you think.
Facebook’s apology for censoring the Declaration of Independence as hate speech does not make the problem go away.
In fact, it makes it worse.
If Facebook had stated that the censorship was due to a pot-smoking, White-hating, “Native American” (means “redskin” to you and me) SJW who has already been fired, this would have been scary indeed, but still in the realm of human error. But this is not what Facebook says.
The censorphip was automatic, software-driven, they say in their apology. Most probably, though they don’t say it in order to have their mistake more mercilessly exposed, because of Jefferson’s reference to “merciless Indian Savages”. This means that in that huge, sanitised leftist kindergarten called Facebook you can’t express a perfectly innocuous – and historically very accurate – opinion without your entire paragraph being removed by Big Libtard Brother.
Facebook has not said that they will put an end to computerised censorship. They are obviously very happy with what they are doing. After being caught, they are simply explaining the embarrassment with the fact that hey, they censor you automatically, at times something is bound to go wrong.
If “Indian Savages” is a non-word, non meriting existence in the Satanic Kingdom of Facebook, what next? Faggot? Abortionist? Sodomite? Trannie? Gun-grabber? MAGA?
It’s an easy game, you see. Everything I don’t like is “hate speech”, because that pathetic circus freak formerly known as Bruce Jenner might, say, commit suicide if you call him “pathetic circus freak formerly known as Bruce Jenner”.
Facebook must be broken up. not only because of their immense power, but also because of the brazenness with which they abuse it. Publicly, insistently so, and defending the abuse even as they are caught with it.
Enough with these media monsters.
Break them up, Mr President.
Make freedom of speech great again.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is, for those who don’t know, a thinly veiled hard socialist with a clear Commie hue who caused a roar last week by defeating – in a notoriously shitty congressional district – a senior Democrat Congressman, Joseph Crawley, for the Democratic primary. Therefore, she all but assured her victory in November, as the shitty Congressional District is, I am told, 70% “minority”, with racist whining and the promise of free handouts very high on the popularity chart.
Since then, a sort of leftist hysteria has been developing, with headlines like this one. In fact, it appears that this young woman, who was a bartender until some six or seven months ago, should even scare the Republicans.
Don’t make me laugh. Actually, every Republican should wish that the woman receives a maximum of attention from the MSM, and becomes the object of another cult of the “feeling the Alexandria” like, not long ago, they were feeling the Bern.
The Sixties have gone. Showing young idiots on TV does not persuade the uneducated older generation that the young are the future and they themselves backwards. It persuades them – and, in fact, many young voters 18-25 years old – that these idiots must be stopped, and mobilises sane conservative (or just, sane) people to the ballot box. This woman is so left, she is basically right there with Maduro and the Pope.
Like the Pope, she tries to give Catholic credentials to her inane drivel. And like the Pope, she will fail miserably, as her hypocrisy, ignorance and total lack of shame is exposed by everyone who, once, read three paragraphs of any Catechism. She will, in fact, not even have the benefit of being Pope; though I would like to ask her whether she thinks that a woman should be able to become that, too.
We must wish that this clown in petticoat receives as much attention as possible. She is a fearful weapon in our hands. We wish her a great victory in November and a high degree of publicity before and after that day.
I so wish Francis would receive her at the Vatican with some excuse or other. It would do a lot to mobilise Catholics against her.
A toxic Pope, who managed to actually make Trump more popular by criticising his wall, deserves the company of a toxic feminazi in favour of abortion, sexual perversion and massive wealth redistribution.
Come on, Francis.
Feel the B….itch!
This happened by the very peace and love pervert “pride” manifestation.
These people are scum. Both the militant perverts themselves and those who think it cool to support them.
This is not even the individual tragedy of a man or woman finding himself afflicted by this horrible, unnatural, disgusting tendency.
These here are the soldiers, the activists, the rainbow nutcases.
How do the call themselves again?
Seriously, if we accept for a moment what Francis has said to the press in a little pause between two attacks on Trump, what kind of nonsense will we end up believing?
The man states he did not receive the dubia privately, and only knew about them from the newspapers. How can anyone be so arrogant and dumb at the same time? The mind boggles.
Firstly, this assertion is so stupid that not even an old nincompoop like him can really believe it will wash. Cardinals like Burke and Caffarra – no lions, certainly; but correct, decent people – would, then, have schemed against him? Really? How are we expected to believe that the Cardinals would not try to solve such an important issue in camera caritatis before going public? How dirty must Francis mind be, to even start to think it?
Secondly, Francis’ pants are clearly on fire. If this had been the case, why not say so immediately? It would have least have lent some little credibility to the assertion, and if anyone has blocked the communication it would have been easy to discover who; besides, this should have been followed by an offer of immediate meeting to discuss the matter. Communication, you know? Talking. Discussing differences. Discovering common ground. Helping each other.
Third: what kind of senile, petty idiot does not answer important questions concerning the faith in order to “show it” to Cardinals he thinks have slighted him?
Fourthly: what kind of unspeakably evil ass has the temerity and shamelessness of even going around and imply that he was right in not answering the Dubia because they were not presented to him in the proper way, as if this was a legitimate reaction?
Lastly: what other public person or politician – nay: what what kind of adult – would spit such nonsense to the press without being inundated with harsh criticism and utter insult? How old is this guy, three? Sheesh.
The next Pope might be even more satanical than this one.
But it is impossible that the Cardinals find another one who is just as stupid.
The great Donald J Trump has shown the world, again, how it is done; and again, the incompetent class of journalists and diplomacy “experts” is left with trying to limit their embarrassment. Let me summarise how Trump has dealt with the North Korean threat.
Trump starts from the end. His aim is the destruction of North Korea as a nuclear threat. He has decided to do this and then he has worked on this becoming reality.
North Korea has survived because China protects them in various ways, helping their regime to avoid collapse. Trump starts his North Korea policy by kicking the Chinese in the balls, very hard, with the recent tariffs. Tariffs which are, as the Chinese were made to understand, only the start. A country with more than $300 billion surplus in its trade with the US has no defence when on the other side there is a man willing to cut this to zero if needs be, and leaving them in no doubt that he can and will do this if he must. Unless the Chinese behave. Clearly, North Korea isn’t worth the castration of the Chinese economy and, also important, humiliation of China.
To make things even more clear, the latest round of sanctions against Korea is enforced brutally, because this is not the time to posture about like Obama did.
At this point, North Korea is the lapdog of the US already.
Then he directs his attention directly to the North Koreans and, basically, imposes on them the visit of his guy, Mr Pompeo. The guy flies there, enters the wolf’s lair like he owns it, and gives the North Koreans their marching orders about what they have to do if they want to have at least a shot at survival.
They are to shut up, fly to Beijing to be told first hand how really, really screwed they are, and agree to a meeting with Trump to take further orders.
When Mike Pence makes clear that this is not the usual Obama fake diplomacy where the president tries to look good but nothing is achieved, and states very clearly that the aim is denuclearisation or destruction of the evil regime, the North Koreans react with a violent attack to him; thinking, poor guys accustomed to limp-wrist Obama, that they can still bark to Number 2 and get away with it.
Here, Trump shows what a master he is, and what a natural at that. He leaves the negotiating table and, in the same letter with which he does so, threatens the North Koreans very publicly with utter destruction.
In English: shut up, fat Kim.
You. are. my. bitch.
Get in line again, fast, or start taking the measurements for your coffin.
Promptly, the North Koreans grovelling ask the President to please, please have mercy on them, and the rest is history: the meeting does take place, Kim promises nuclear disarmament, the extremely harsh sanctions against Korea remain entirely in place whilst he does so, and they receive no payments, with the Americans are in charge of controlling that he does what he promised. The only “concession” he makes is the stop to military exercises not scheduled until next year.
This way, the bitch gets a bone and is allowed to try to survive, if she can; and if the bitch behaves, Trump might throw at her another bone or two, with little meat around it; then Trump is not President to right all the wrongs in the world, but to deal with the threats to American security.
Boy, what a difference with Obama and Clinton. They could not wait to give relief from sanctions, and even money, from the start, against empty promises everyone knows will never be honoured; and called this diplomacy.
If Obama had achieved one third with North Korea of what Trump has already done, he would have been celebrated as the Greatest Guy Ever Born. Trump humiliates the North Koreans in all possible ways, showed the world that he owns them and the Chinese are no match to him, and all the libtard complain because we still have a repressive regime in place, which they have been helping to survive and become a big threat in the last decades.
This is not the way Trump thinks. Trump selects an objective at the start (the nuclear disarmament) and goes straight towards it, kicking all the balls he must kick in the process but also not thinking that he is the World Policeman and Global Social Justice Hero. What a great man we have at the White House.
Peace through superior Testosterone.
Enjoy the show whilst the libtard heads explode.
Wim Wenders’ sugary brown-nosing of the Evil Clown ended up a bomb of dramatic proportions. The details of the drama are here.
You could probably screen a documentary on the history of the semicolon and get more people willing to pay to see that than torturing themselves with 96 minutes of Francis. I do not doubt it would be more interesting and formative, too. Actually, one has the impression the only viewers were those being punished by their parents and forced to choose between the documentary and two months of being “grounded”.
This is enough to make you cringe. This is so embarrassing I am embarrassed for them, as the likes of Francis and Wenders are obviously incapable of embarrassment themselves. This one is the Pope, for crying out loud! He goes out in 350 cinemas and he gets, on the opening weekend, an average of $1,500 per cinema screen, per weekend?
Mind, this is the gross intake. The theatre gets around half, the other half goes to… reduce the losses. $750 for the weekend. Will this suffice to even pay for electricity, cleaning and personnel?
Embarrassing. Utterly and completely embarrassing. From the man who has dedicated his own papacy to being “accepted” and considered “cool” by those people who constitute the majority of cinema goers in the United States. With a director whose name still has some form of, if not esteem, at least recognition. It goes to show how radioactive Francis is.
Despised by Catholics. Ignored by everyone else. Desperately trying to be popular with the world. Failing miserably.
There you have it: this papacy in four short sentences.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
Q. Why does God, in the Fifth Commandment, forbid the taking of one’s own life or suicide?
A. In the Fifth Commandment God forbids suicide, because man is not the master of his own life no more than of the life of another. Hence the Church punishes suicide by deprivation of Christian burial.
The first quote is, obviously, from the Proverbs. The second is from the Catechism of Saint Pius X. I have not quoted from the “Catechism of V II” because it almost never states things with the beautiful clarity that once was the mark of these texts, and also because I think that Vatican II should be avoided whenever possible.
In the last week or so, two very prominent suicides have shaken the United States of Trump. The first was the suicide of Kate Spade, the billionaire fashion entrepreneur. The second was the one of Anthony Bourdain, the (anti-Trump) “celebrity” chef and TV entertainer.
Hand on heart, and hoping to do something good for my salvation and the salvation of those who read me, I feel the need to spend a word or three to counter the mountain of secular dog excrement I see invading internet fora and such like places. I can’t even imagine the amount of sugary platitude that will be posted on Facebook by countless wannabe Sunday philosophers.
Suicide merits hell. This is the beginning, the middle, the end, the fruit, the dessert and the lemon sorbet of it. If anyone commits suicide lucidly knowing what he is doing, he goes straight to hell.
Every time some atheists leftist chooses the easy way out, we are confronted with (normally, but not always; and the V II crowd is most atrocious in their acquiescence to them) atheists leftists presenting suicide as something which just happens fo rpurely medical reasons, because depression is such a horrible thing.
Depression is, for sure, a most horrible thing. However, ask yourself this: who would, upon willingly murdering someone else, escape jail because he was depressed?
Exactly. The only way for the person to escape jail (and still land in a madhouse, however called) is the inability to understand and will what he was doing; and this, obviously, provided that this inability was not self-inflicted (because of, say, extreme drunkenness or drug-taking). The same applies to suicide; then suicide is, believe it or not, the murder of oneself.
Those who think that God would judge the one who murders himself differently than the one who murders someone else have not been paying attention to a phenomenon called Christianity, and should be made aware of it for the good of their and their loved ones’ souls.
Also, all those who just assume that a willingly committed suicide is justified because, well, every suicide ever is – a staple of the godless society – are ipso facto accessories in another person’s sin through their defence of the ill done. Being accessory in a mortal sin is not something you want to be.
Of course, I wasn’t there when the suicides happened. But for heaven’s sake, don’t treat yourself and others as if they were children, because they aren’t. Kate Spade left a suicide note. Kindly let us stop being dumb here.
Of course, you never really know. Both of them hanged themselves. These home-made executions by hanging tend to be long-ish, very painful affairs. You never know whether, helped by his guardian angel and God’s grace, the person managed a perfect contrition in the end. However, there is a huge difference between the realistically faint hope that a half-miracle happened at the last moment and the pollyannish, sugary, Vatican-II-kindergarten assumption that it has been so. It is for this reason that, in the age of sanity, suicides were refused a Christian burial. The refusal did not equate to a condemnation to hell. It was, however, a sober and charitable assessment of the probabilities at play. This sober assessment also applied, for the most part, to people who had either practice, or knowledge, or both of Christianity in much higher degree than this is, today, often the case. Bourdain does not strike me as a spiritual character. The possibility that one overcomes 61 years of godlessness in, say, 32 seconds of willed self-suffocation out of rejection of that same God they should now ask for forgiveness is a very, very, very long shot.
Prima facie, a most atrocious, blasphemous sin has been committed. There is no certainty about the interior motives, degree of will or ultimate punishment. However, there are facts on the ground such that a reasonable person will reach a reasonable conclusion about what has, very probably, happened and the very probable consequences of the act. We must, as Christians, register these facts, apply common sense to them and charitably help others to understand the Christian perspective on suicide.
This will, of course, offend them.
Good. It means that the message has been understood.
Dear reader, I invite you to profit of these suicides to give, as they say, some witness for Christ.
Pick a liberal or two, and shock them hard. You may want to arch your eyebrows in the most sympathetic way as you do so, Libtard-style. But please pour them the medicine straight down the throat.
If they spit it out is will be their problem. But who knows: in twenty years’ time, it could be the remembering of that once spitted medicine that, with God’s grace. saves their soul.
You hear people say about the complementarity of “Yin” and “Yang”. How the two integrate and complete each other, and all that. They normally feel very smug as they grace the world with their deep knowledge of all things human.
I wonder how many of these people would react, were they told that a child needs a father and a mother?
President (Thank, God!!) Trump’s remarks about the animals of MS-13 have prompted the usual scandal from the bleeding hearts of the left. From the many who ran to accuse Trump of calling all illegals “animals” (usual fake news) to, predictably, Father James “Georgina” Martin getting, ahem, all hot and bothered at Trump’s testosterone and making comparisons with Hitler, there was no scarcity of hypocrite virtue-signalling and fake righteous outrage.
It used to work, you know. There was a time where the Rottweilers (see what I am doing here?) of the left only had to bark, and the emasculated “conservatives” would fall in line very fast, apologising to everyone and his cat for any offence that might have been taken, or imagined, or dreamed of.
Those times have gone.
The White House in the Age Of Trump doubles down on the statement, outs the leftists for the bunch of screeching bitches they are, and proceeds to not only take solid ground, but go on the counterattack on this. I sincerely hope that the hysteric defence of extremely brutal criminals from the left will become one of the themes of the coming electoral campaign. Trump truly is the guy who could do it.
But let us talk about animals more in general.
Calling cruel, evil, or simply very dumb people “animals” is so common that the usage is everywhere. Pope Francis himself referred (seek the link for yourself) to priests who deny baptism to the children of single mothers in that way. It is really, really common.
The Bible does the same, and it is the Word of God. Go to Gateway pundit or any other interactive bible with a search function and you will see the usage recurring in a variety of contexts in both the Old and the New Testament. Our Lord himself, when talking of casting pearls before swine, is obviously referring to humans, and in this sense has the phrase been used ever since.
Even more in general, the comparison does not even have to be offensive. Our Lord is the Lamb of God. Is there any homosexualist priest who finds this offensive?
But let us enter an even wider field, and let us put the matter in its proper context.
An animal, in the strict sense of the word (that is: not a human) cannot sin. A human is capable of great evil. What does this tell us?
Pope Francis is worse than any animal. It is likely that it would have been better for him to be born a physical jackass, than a figurative one.
It seems absurd, and it isn’t.
The pattern is always the same. Vocal minorities claim persecution. Then legislation is enacted to “protect” them in some way. Then it becomes deeply offensive to go against the new PC mantra. Then it must be a criminal offence to do so.
The problem with the UK is the extreme, if you allow me the word, “dumbification” of the Country after sixty years of decaying religious feeling and BBC-fueled PC shallowness. Millions are just unable to see when their liberties are infringed upon, because their Facebook pages are too full of sugary platitudes to allow them to start using their brains.
The double standard is also already built in. You don’t get any prizes for supposing that Muslims will go largely unscathed, Catholics will be prime targets if not tomorrow, the day after tomorrow.
The premise is stupid already. Different religions ar eintriniscally incompatible with each other, which is why they are different in the first place. Therefor,e any proclamation of the truths – real or supposed – of one religion must be offensive to another one.
“God has no son”, blaspheme the Muslims. Shall it be six years, then?
Oh, and I forgot.
You know that in the end religion might simply be a convenient excuse, don’t you?
The real aim of these guidelines is the critics of “trangenders”; that is, those peopl emad enough to believe that they are not who they are, and who in more charitable times were protected from themselves by putting them in suitable mental institutions. Not anymore, of course, and the staggering suicide rate shows all the cruelty of “tolerance”.
Mind, the Country has more resources than this, and will react at some point. But this kind of attacks has been going on for more than ten years now, and it is time for the Conservative to become Conservative again and start thinking straight. Because if they don’t, the British people might at some point wake up in other ways. At that point it might get ugly; because, whilst sadly “dumbified”, this is still a fairly tough nation, very difficult to indoctrinate for very long with the easiness with which you can brainwash the Germans.
