Some nutcases have celebrated the funeral of a glacier in Iceland.
It would be funny to know the details (Iceland is pretty remote; some of the participants have likely flown; one would like to enquire about the CO2 costs of this “funeral”, since its production is toxic to them), but really, it gives you the idea of the stupidity of our times. Also, it is not clear to me that the glacier is actually not there anymore. Apparently, the guy is still there. Only, some scientist has decided that, in some way, he is not there anymore, or he can’t move, or he will never be able to have a cappuccino again first thing in the morning.
Sad. So sad. Mysteries of “settled science”….
In the orgy of stupidity, the organisers managed to say something right:
Climate change doesn’t have a beginning or end
Exactly, you dumb oxes and cows. Climate always changes, in another astonishing show of the beauty of Creation. It always changes like everything else always changes, from the seasons to the atmospheric weather, and from the animal kingdom to our own bodies.
These simple truths are, apparently, beyond the grasp of people who clearly do not believe in God. They live in the midst of such astonishing beauty and complexity and, instead of directing their eyes heavenward and thank their Maker for His astonishing goodness, they sit somewhere in Iceland, in the cold, where they perform childish ceremonies, terrified that the sky is about to fall on their heads.
These people are also, in case you had not noticed, a pure eugenics Nazi cult. From the linked article:
“My understanding is that we have basically eradicated, almost, Down syndrome from our society—that there is hardly ever a child with Down syndrome in Iceland anymore,” said Kari Stefansson, a geneticist and the founder of deCODE Genetics.
Systematic killing of the defenceless in order to improve the stock. Purification of the race from less than perfect individuals.
This guy would make the perfect Auschwitz doctor. All, of course, for the improvement of humanity.
The woman cited about abortion is also worthy of the Final Solution Prize 2019:
“We don’t look at abortion as a murder,” said Helga Sol Olafsdottir, who counsels women who have a pregnancy with a chromosomal abnormality at Landspitali University Hospital. “We look at it as a thing that we ended.”
Well, you know what, Helga?
We do not look at the death of a glacier (insofar as it has happened) as something strange.
We look at it as something God ended.
A non-catholic publication has a non-catholic article about the Amazon Synod. No link, obviously.
The picture, however, says it all.
The caption: “Isidoro Jajoy, a shaman from Colombia’s Inga tribe, blesses people in Bogota Aug. 14, 2019, during a preparatory meeting for the October Synod of Bishops for the Amazon. (CNS/Manuel Rueda)”
Very near to the “shaman” is what can only be a nun, in a reverent gesture as she is receiving the so-called “blessing” from multi-coloured Isidoro.
My take is that all the present, including the nun, are Catholics ready and willing to have a representative of some savage cult – who, in order to remove all doubt, is also dressed like a savage – give them some sort of “blessing” in order to experience the alleged connection with the earth of the cult of the savages, or something of the sort.
It is too appalling for words, and no polite words can really describe the prostitution of Christianity that is happening here, and which the nun in the foreground so crudely and shamelessly represents.
These people are selling our religion to the cult of earth, the approval of the world, and the rituals of savages. They are led by a number of bishops, and you can be assured that neither the nun, nor the other present, nor the bishop or bishops at the event will offer any apology for this act of implicit apostasy – or, at best, religious synchretism – that comes from thinking that a savage cult can improve Catholicism in any way, shape or form. And may their ignorance be a partial excuse for the uninstructed people out there – some of whom might simply not realise the meaning of what they are doing – the nun and the bishops certainly do not have any.
I’ll put in a polite way.
Where is the Inquisition when you need them….?
The oh so predictable “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein has caused a wave of comments in the media.
One of the most often heard is that the victims of Mr Epstein feel “deprived” of “justice”. I found the reaction odd, or contradictory, for two reasons.
The first: one would think (and has always thought in thinking times) that death is the harshest punishment. If I were a victim of Mr Epstein, I would feel unable to think that the man has not paid a heavy price for his crimes; either by deciding to put an end to his own life (and imagine in what pain the man must have been to make such a decision), or by being elegantly “terminated” with a fake suicide, so that the Clinton Clan who knows how many powerful people can sleep safe at night (and imagine the terror at knowing that powerful people, for whom a maximum security jail is no obstacle, are coming for him).
Death is the harshest punishment. If this were not so, then lynching would be considered a very mild form of punishment, as – say – an assassin would get rid of his suffering very soon and not even get a sentence. Common sense alone says that the contrary is the case.
The second: among those who decry the lack of “justice” there must be, surely, a number who consider euthanasia a human right. One wonders: how is it that they do not allow Mr Epstein to enjoy the same right that every other human should, in their mind, have?
If there is a “right to die”, surely this right cannot be denied to anyone, and everyone should be able to ask (before, during, or after a trial) to have his life terminated. Having committed crimes is not relevant. One does not lose his status and (ahem) “dignity” as a human being for having committed crimes.
Once again, modern society shows that it has lost the compass of right and wrong even in elementary things.
Christianity is the compass of what is right and what is wrong. Lose it, and you will discover yourself entangled in contradictions as your purely emotional approach to “justice” becomes the mere pursuit of momentary whims.
Ohio Shooter: Leftist Methhead Who Supported Sanders And Liberal Causes, Dabbed in Satanism, Thought Trump Dumb
Lies have short legs, they say.
This wise saying was proven once again in the case of the deranged, but still evil, shooter in Dayton, Ohio, during the weekend.
The normally atrocious (but, this time, prepared) Daily Mail has a detailed, rather shocking article giving rich details about the life and mind of this despicable individual (see what I am doing here? No excuses for mass murder. Besides, if you fry your brains with meth, of course you can become unhinged!).
The long reading clearly paints a picture that is the contrary of what the Leftist, God-hating, Gun-hating propaganda wanted us to believe.
No MAGA guy, this one.
Not one bit.
A Sanders supporter and friend of liberal causes (as you would expect from a methhead), he left a lot of scribbles about murder fantasies and satanic phrases and thoughts. His habit of getting a vast range of drugs bespeaks the dutiful son of liberal America. There is no trace whatsoever of faith (in God, in decency, or in Trump) in this guy, but also no racism or “white supremacist” tendencies (which, funnily enough, the baby-killing machine on the left continues to attribute to Trump, because in their stupidity they think it will help them in 2020).
This, my dear reader, is exactly the contrary of a “Hillary Deplorable”. This guy was the enemy of Conservative America and the friend of Liberal America in pretty much everything we can see of his deranged personality.
Seriously: whilst the circumstances of the event are utterly tragic, the way the Left baby-killing machine tries to “not let a crisis go to waste” and uses such tragedies to attack Trump and Decent America, only to receive a huge boomerang on their teeth shortly thereafter (remember Trayvon Martin? Or Michael Brown?) is, in its own way, quite funny to behold.
You can now expect that both the baby-killing machine and the MSM supporting them will keep running around and screaming “white supremacist!” at Trump like a chicken with his head cut off, in a desperate attempt to cover their lies by just doubling down on them. This will enrage Decent America even more in the months to come.
These people don’t even know what is good for their evil cause. They are bad at being bad.
Keep slandering Trump, ladies and gentlemen of the persuasion of Moloch. See how it helps you come November 2020!
Keep America Great.
And please stop making excuses for leftists, mass-murdering methheads. Their evil is just a by-product of the godless, valueless society the Left has created.
When the NGOs of the West criticise your behaviour, representative of the leftist party call your new law “monstrous”, and the UN condemns you openly, you must be doing something right
Italy continues in its struggle to defend itself from those who want to undermine its Christina culture, and use it as a bridge head to push the Islamisation of our continent and the destruction of our traditional values and way of life.
Salvini has recognised the enemy and he says so openly. This is not difficult from the perspective of the solid, hard working man on the street. But it is absolutely remarkable in a politician. This is why Salvini’s party is now estimated to have the support of 38% of the population, an unbelievably high figure in a Country with a multi-party system in which the traditionally passionate Italians can fine tune their political allegiance.
This man really gets the people, because he has the no-nonsense, intelligent approach that the non-nonsense people in Italy have.
Interestingly enough, neither of the two (Salvini or the people) are particularly religious; but both recognise that the threat of a foreign invasion is the threat to our Christian roots, which is what makes of us what we are now. It was enough for one to see, imperfect as he is, to clean up in the Italian political scene. In Terra Caecorum Monoculus Rex
Salvini is one of the few who see it. He is surrounded, in Italy and elsewhere, by a circle of conformist, weak, incompetent cretins who think – because it has worked for them until now – that trite common places and easy slogans are the way forward for their careers, and the people will swallow whatever rubbish they dish to them, provided it sounds tolerant or otherwise “do-good”-ing. Not anymore, apparently.
Salvini thanked the Blessed Virgin again after the approval of the Law yesterday. Stop here and reflect when it was that such a think happened, before Salvini, in Italian politics. Granted, he is a very imperfect Catholic. But he gets it, and the Italian people finally have a guy who understands the simple facts of life and draws the consequences from them.
May the Blessed Virgin help you and us always, Mr Salvini. And may she help us to get on the long road leading, one day, to the recovery of our Christian roots and, actually, sanity.
Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia appears directed towards prompt retirement once the age limit has been reached.
Honestly, I can’t wait.
There was a time when Chaput resembled a decent Catholic and was, actually, often quoted for saying the right thing. Many bloggers, including yours truly, wrote appreciatively about him.
But Chaput was one of those strange V Ii animals who, with age, start to resemble a chameleon. Very much a Benedictite during Benedict’s reign, he began to amp up the social justice tone soon after Francis became Pope. The first one or two times I had a “what the heck is going on” moment. Later, I understood that this one was merely another product of the V II school of thought, with a finger permanently in the air, and all too ready to follow the wind.
I don’t know what excuses the Archbishop told to himself, but it is clear now that they did not obtain the hoped result. Francis veered so much to the left that no amount of heroic contortionism could suffice for the red hat.
The fact is, that whilst Chaput was one of those contortionism specialists V II so lavishly produces, at heart he was still a Catholic. He would dab in leftist political issues and indulge in the rhetorical talking points of the secular society, but he would not compromise on the basics of his own religion. Therefore, he became one of those “neither flesh nor fowl” Archbishops who manage to please only the press with their easy headlines (most recently, against “gun violence”; as if guns were violent…) even as they enrage good Catholics and are considered mediocre helpers by the bad ones.
No red hat, then, for Archbishop Chaput. Not even as token “conservative” (as far as Francisconservatives go) so that Francis can prove that he cares for (fake) “pluralism” of opinions.
We have no need for bishops who confuse Catholics picking and choosing what they want to defend of the tradition handed down to us. They perpetuate the confusion, are a very poor help for people to keep their faith, and largely give the impression that even those who appear “conservatives” need to bow to the tenets of the new world religion, like those of social justice whining, illegal immigration and gun control.
I for myself prefer that Francis has no token “conservatives” who conserve very little and very badly. Let him show his ugly face to the world in the open. When God wills, this test will pass; but those like Chaput do not do anything to help the recovery of sanity, they merely spread more confusion.
Good riddance, Archbishop Chaput.
It’s so sad the contortionism didn’t work.
The site has posted a petition to “respectfully” ask Apple to please, please be allowed in.
I disagree with the ban (obviously), but I have not signed the petition.
People thinking that LifeSite is unworthy of being published on its platform because it “shows intolerance” (of course it does; everyone does; Apple shows intolerance towards LifeSite banning them!) are basic enemies of Christianity. It is perfectly useless to try to reason with that lot.
The question is a different one: Apple News is acting like an editor, not a news platform, and should have all the responsibilities linked to it.
I am not angry that LifeSite is not on the internet page of MSNBC. They do their own stuff and decide themselves to whom they want to give space. I am angry when the free flow of information is throttled for ideological reasons by people who act as gateways of thought.
It is as if a company opened a motorway, and then decided whom they want on it. Arguably, it is more important than this, because it can be argued that freedom of speech is even more important than freedom of movement.
This is another example of Big Tech acting as Big Nanny. Already the idea that “intolerance” may, in itself, be unacceptable tells you the blank stupidity of these people. There is no one who is not intolerant towards things, people or behaviour he finds intolerable. We find abortion intolerable, they find being prevented from killing a baby in the womb intolerable.
The solution for this is not begging the evil guy to please be a bit less evil for once. The solution for this is recognise the danger that tech companies pose to Western Freedoms and act accordingly, forcing every company to choose if it wants to operate as a news platform (and be forced to refrain from any sort of censorship), or as an editor (and then controlling the information, but answering for it).
For the time being, reflect on the way Apple tries to control you and whether it deserves your money. Whilst all big tech companies are evil, some are less evil than others. For example, Android is an open platform. It might be more difficult for me to download an app that is not on their store; but if I want to do it, I can do it anyway. On a proprietary system like Apple this does not happen, which is why the Manhattan Declaration never found its way to an iPhone.
Let us stop being nice people begging for a place at the table. LifeSite should start to incessantly demand that Apple be broken up or forced to act as an editor (and I would say there is merit for breaking it up as a Company anyway) instead of kindly petitioning for entrance in the halls of Mordor.
It is not that, if Apple changes its mind, the problem goes away. If Apple changes its mind it will only be a bone thrown to the dogs, so that they do not understand how bad things really are for them.
Enough with petitioning.
Over to you, AG Barr.
There is an article on wnd about suicide and the attitude of Californians about it.
The article seems, to me, confused, and missing an important point.
It is confused, because the author claims that everybody who wants to commit suicide should be free to do so, in his own time. But every Christian knows that this is an extremely nebulous vision of life.
Our life isn’t ours, it belongs to God. We have no right to take it. Similarly, it is the duty of every government to do God’s work and prevent such behaviour. Legislation making of attempted suicide a crime (and, which is perfectly right and logical, of suicide itself, though in this case the enforcement chances seem… slim) serves exactly this purpose: to remind everyone that life is bigger than both the individual and his governing authorities.
In addition to this, the article misses one important point: the corruption clearly pervading public works in the US and in many other parts of the US.
$220 million for a protective net under a bridge? Are you kidding me? How many minority consultants, gender equality consultants, consultants’ consultants is this going to pay for? How much of this money will find its way in generous donations, from the companies contracted with works and materials, to charities and institutions linked to the Democratic party? Is there a sane person thinking that this is not going to feed the party apparatus in thousand legal and, who knows, a couple of illegals ways?
It would be nice to ask a public comptroller (or any public expense watchdog) in, say, Texas, how much such works would cost to them. I am pretty sure the differences in, say, security legislation, contracting procedures, and the like, would be staggering. Yes, San Francisco is an expensive tarmac to do anything. No, I don’t buy it anyway.
Always going on with the comparison, one would ask for how many orphanages, and how many little orphans, would such a budget provide. “An awful lot, for an awfully long time” is the answer. A State government that considers abortion a sort of religious tenet does not want to spend (as it is clear that in California this would be a public task, too) for the children that would result from banning abortion. Instead, it prefers to kill the babies and spend untold sums of money to let the suicides created by a godless suicide get rid of themselves… somewhere else.
Money spent? $220,000,000 if everything goes according to plan.
Lives saved? Zippo.
Congratulations, Californians. And keep paying those taxes. The Democrats need them to feed off of them.
P.s. It would be nice to see what happens if people jump and land on the net below.
Cost of rescue per wannabe suicide? Likely, 1 million a pop…..
You could not make this up.
Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed a bill banning the declawing of cats.
This would be (in its own tragic way) already comical enough as it is. What makes it worse (and, in a way, tragically hilarious) is that the Governor has the guts to, literally, call the practice “inhumane”.
I have some news for the Governor:
Cats are animals.
Babies in the womb are humans.
It is really indicative of how twisted the mind of these people is, that they think it supremely cruel to deprive a cat of his claws, but do not think twice about depriving a human being of his life. Also, this satanic thinking unavoidably gives to a cat a status more dignified, more worthy of protection and, ultimately, more human than the one of an unborn baby. Think of this: the claws of a cat are, to the Governor, more worth than the life of a baby. The cruelty staggers the mind.
Who does this guy think he is, Moloch?
Mind, Cuomo will keep having a brilliant career in the Democratic party when his tenure as Governor comes to an end. Even a candidature to the Presidency is not out of the question. I am sure that countless dumb feminists will heartily approve of his “humanity” towards cats as they scream in the streets, donning their strange hats, about their alleged right to kill a… human in their womb.
We really live in a world that has lost not only the sense of right and wrong, but all sense of decency. It must be so when people forget Christ, because without Christ fluffy feelings are called goodness, justice and equaliteee.
This man, born a Catholic, stinks of reprobation from the other side of the ocean. Still, in your charity, pray for his soul, and for the souls of the countless innocents he is fine with seeing slaughtered.
The satanic America Magazine has gone full homo with an article titled, if you can believe it, “the Catholic case for Communism”. No link.
I have perused the extremely stupid bloviations of the author of the article (may the Lord have mercy on him, though I have my doubts) and would like to make a point or three of my own in the time I have at my disposal.
- There is no “good communist”. Even in the case where a person might think he is moved by the desire to help the suffering world, Communism is godless at its very roots. Therefore, a person who embraces communism has been infected by the same evil. If I want the end of the suffering of the baby seal but do not believe in God, I am not good, in that I lack the fundamental ingredient of true goodness. What I have is merely… fluffy feelings. A Communist, who embraces a demonstrably evil, ideologically godless movement, is much worse than that.
- The desire to see the end of economic inequality is not goodness, it is envy. God has made rich and poor, and Christianity has never condemned the rich qua rich. The desire to put an end to economic disparity is, again, a godless endeavour. By the grace of God you are born rich. By the grace of God you are born poor. By the grace of God you are given those opportunities that allow you to, if you so wish, improve your condition. But always, a Christian recognises that he must not desire other people’s stuff. To all of us, God gives those graces that are good for us. We do not resent the graces given to others, we are grateful for those given to us, be they material (like financial prosperity) or immaterial (health, beauty, intelligence, resilience, inventiveness etc.). Communists are envious people first, second, third, and last.
- Communists are no labourers for peace, nor are they agents of economic justice. To depict them in this way shows a complete ignorance of the root of both true peace and true justice: Christ. Communism has brought death and devastation without end. It had to be so, because a godless “religion” must perforce transform itself into a killing machine as its devotees will have all the determination of the Christian without any of God’s goodness. In Italy we had one of the most atrocious examples, as it is proven beyond doubt that, towards the end of WWII, Communist partisans killed as many anticommunist partisans as they could, in order to make a Communist revolution easier in the unstable phase that would follow the end of the conflict. Make no mistake, those partisans killing other partisans did so because they followed their godless religion, and “wanted a better world”. Come to that, you can say the same of Dr Goebbels, too…
- Catholicism and Communism do not have a “complicated relationship”. They are, literally, like the devil and the holy water: totally antithetical. To even suggest otherwise indicates a total lack of faith in Christ. The continuous attempt of the article to minimise the evil of Communism and try to discover similarities is the work of the devil.
I could go on for much longer, but firstly I do not have the time, and secondly even perusing the damn article made my blood boil, so I will leave it at this.
Communism is of Satan.
Those who don’t see it are of Satan, too.
By all means, do it. Heck, I am sure you pray even for Francis when you have your stomach in order.
But do not forget that we are in a fight, and in this fight the enemy is exactly Dr Wen and the people like her.
The one or other can be converted by kindness. But Jerusalem wasn’t retaken by kindness. More importantly, the kindness should be reserved to those who deserve it (for example, because they begin to question their baby killing beliefs), not given unconditionally to every baby killing machine.
We have been losing for too long because we try to be civil, as we are attacked mercilessly. Enough.
Suddenly, Dr Wen’s refusal to include trannies in her own particular brand of aggressive, baby-killing feminism should be seen as a positive. I frankly doubt it. Similarly, it is not clear to me how having lost a baby of her own would make her in any way, shape or form more predisposed to conversion, seen that after losing her baby she found it acceptable to sit at the top of the greatest baby-killing machine in the United States.
That event doesn’t make her better. In case, it makes her more callous. Surely, the doctors carrying experiments in Auschwitz loved their children, too?
The likes of Dr Wen should – whilst we pray for their conversion – be left in no doubt as to what decent people think of them.
When the prodigal daughter comes back to the Christian household, the fat calf will be prepared for her. But for now, she is the enemy; a baby killing individual that presided over a monstrous organisation, and was kicked out of it because she was simply not political enough for them, and because her particular brand of feminism does not include the latest feminist craze.
There is a time for peace and a time for war; there is a time for kindness and a time for harshness.
Hitler deserved no kindness.
Nor does Dr Wen.
I was reading this article about a tele-conversation between Jordan Peterson and FrancisBishop Barron. let me tell you first that I am not a fan of the first, and keenly dislike the second.
In the interview, Bishop Barron says something extremely disquieting, unworthy of a priest and outright creepy. Speaking of the way to assist the sinner and help him to repent, the FrancisBishop states:
“We have to accompany people all the way down [to the bottom before they can ascend],”
I have checked this part in the video, and he does not retract, or even correct, the statement. Actually he doubles down, in that he makes clear that he really intends this damn “accompaniment” in the damned Francis sense.
It is impossible to stress strongly enough how utterly and completely wrong this is. This is the satanic vision of a Church that sees Herself as a kind of gentle nurse, staying with you as you sink in a pit of drug addiction, alcoholism, sexual perversion or whatever that is, perhaps gently encouraging you to “grow out” of your way, but still making clear that the nurse is there watching you as you insert the needle.
Just a second after Peterson had (with a surprising petulant voice, I must say) complained that the Church “does not give hell” anymore to the faithful, Barron replies with a concept that is the most apt to accompany the sinner all the way to hell under the pretence of mercy; after which, every pretence to also give some strong warning can only be a travesty, as in the nurse who watches you as you insert the needle and then says to you that what you have done is… quite suboptimal.
Let us keep the metaphor alive, and let us say that the role of the Church is to slap the drug addict in the face, so hard that his head goes round and round for a good quarter of an hour; then have the slap followed by a vivid description of hell; then round everything up with another massive slap, ad abundantiam, so that the message remains.
This is why the Church excludes from communion public concubines and those in mortal sin. It’s Her way to make your head go round and round for a quarter of an hour, so that you get the message.
I am sick and tired of these damn, effeminate nurses. When I was a little child, we children were intimidated at the mere sight of the priest, walking around in his cassock, tall and solemn like he is Pharaoh. Why were we? Because we knew that the man was the very embodiment of what we knew to be unshakeable truths of life: death, judgement, and the atrocity of hell.
As we grew up, we had around us priests we did not wear a cassock, would or could not be seen as the embodiment of any authority, and probably did not believe in hell, either. We did not respect these weak, little men. We saw them as useless losers, unable to even do their job. We knew they were expected to be leaders of men. We saw that they had reduced themselves to … nurses.
A priest cannot escape giving his sheep a strong warning about hell. Hell must be the cornerstone of everything he does, because helping his sheep to avoid it and the only reason why he has the job in the first place. By all means, let him talk a lot about Incarnation, Redemption, Salvation, and the life of grace. But let him always, always point out to the only thing that counts in life: avoiding hell.
Barron is not part of the solution. He is part of the problem. He should stop brown-nosing Francis and, as they say, get a pair. Perhaps, one day he might, who knows, even become a worthy bishop.
Planned Parenthood, the giant US baby-killing machine, has decided to get rid of her CEO of 10 months (incidentally: woman, and minority; just sayin’…) because not hard enough on the baby-killing line.
Killing babies is a pure health care issue, says the not-so-good doctor.
My foot, replies Planned Babycide’s Board: killing babies is a big money machine, there are elections coming, and a lot of dough is at stake!
Therefore, the smiling baby-killer has been ousted in favour of baby-killers with a more aggressive attitude. More talk of “reproductive health”, “women’s rights”, and other dumb stuff meant to hide the brutal, atrocious reality of baby-killing is to be expected.
I welcome the development.
Planned Parenthood need to be exposed, and the best way to achieve this aim is allow the baby butchers to actually expose themselves as aggressively as they can.
Good riddance, smiling baby-killers.
Moloch wants someone even worse than you.
A pretend “catholic” magazine (no link) has an article of pathetic excuses as to why Francis is so terrorised of his own people that he is not planning to visit Argentina any time soon.
In pure hack style, an entire people is insulted in order to prepare you for the news that they hate the Pope: egocentric, arrogant, bloody know-it-all is how they are introduced to you before telling you what they think of the Evil Clown. What they think is highly predictable: leftist, and “even” (on which planet do these people live!) “not Catholic enough”.
You don’t say…
These people are, obviously, uninformed, the hack hurries to let us know. They haven’t read his documents. No shit, Sherlock! As if a practical, working man had time to read the endless blabla of the Evil Clown to know what a tool he is, and his almost daily proclamations weren’t enough.
And woe one of the practical, hard working people should tell him something imprecise. It makes the entire nation uninformed, see?
At this point the attempts to defend Francis are becoming almost more ludicrous and pathetic than Francis himself. So many people have leant out of the window defending his subversive work, that they are now forced to desperate attempts at PR for a man that no PR agency in the world could ever save from ignominy. Nor does Francis understand the lesson, and tries to soften the tones or dial down his own anti-Capitalistic, anti-Catholic propaganda. No, he is just as arrogant and self-centred as the fake catholic hack accuses the Argentinians to be.
Francis’ Pontificate has had, up to now, two distinct phases.
The first is the Wheelchair Phase: basking in the approval of the masses with stupid gestures like paying for his own hotel and embracing every wheelchair in sight. This could not go on for long, because – as your humble correspondent predicted years ago – at some point the stupidity of the man would be enough to squander the immense patrimony of goodwill given to a Pope.
When this happened, you saw the other Francis, and the Pram Phase started. Uncaring of the ferocious criticism levelled at him from theologians, professors and simple people, the man reacted by increasing the frequency and the tone of his anti-catholic interventions. It is fair to say that by 2016 we were clearly in phase 2.
But this man is truly, truly stupid, and a third phase might be coming upon us soon, courtesy of his immense childishness and lack of intellect: the Amazonian Phase. In this phase, we are supposed to go looking for savages, asking them what their cult of the forest and their dialogue with the trees can teach us about God, that Christ somehow forgot to tell us. There must be, deep within the forest, a Special Revelation that wasn’t revealed to us up to now, and that we will all have to follow lest we are deemed “ossified”. What wonderful new tenets this Second Revelation will bring is easy to see already: married priests, rabid anti-Capitalism, faggotry all around, and a general understanding of sexual matters very much in line with the one of the above mentioned tree-worshipping savages.
Please, God, make the man die soon. No, not resign, because after the traumatic experience of the Three Tenors I doubt we could survive the Three Popes without extensive, collective brain damage.
Please, make him die. Repentant, if You so decree, and I wish him salvation with all my heart still. But please, make him die.
Please, make him die today.
I think many have learnt the lesson already.
What you read here is, alas, very much in line with the thinking of too many Germans. If you don’t conform to every form of indoctrination your rulers have decided that is good for you, you should have your children taken away from you and given to the Nazi propaganda Apparatus, so that it can make good MiniNazis out of them.
I begin to suspect that either the Germans have not been bombed long enough during WWII, or else that they need to be bombed every 100 years or so, to dial their tendencies back every time they become too strong.
Be it as it may, the event is another symptom of an extremely worrying trait of the German mind; a trait I could witness very often during the years I lived there.
Kind, honest, efficient and generally of good heart, the Germans have a huge, collective shortcoming: their extreme gregariousness makes them easy pray of every evil ideology that becomes mainstream. If you don’t think like the rest of the sheep, you must be evil.
This is how Hitler’s Germany used to operate, and how Merkel’s Germany operates today. None of them really imposes the conformity to the rules on their people. The Germans are extremely good at doing it themselves.
When you understand this, you understand a lot of German history. You understand how the average Nazi German could be so kind to his neighbour, whilst considering a given that, say, Russians are Untermenschen. I thank God the Germans classed the Italians as Aryans. Had it gone the other way, I wonder whether I would have been born at all.
I make an easy prediction here. The German gregariousness, coupled with the great economic power of their Country, will cause them to be crushed again in this generation or the next; unless, that it, Muslims don’t care for it first, which I highly doubt.
Am deutschen Wesen soll die Welt Genesen: “The world shall be made whole through the German way of being”. This old slogan, often mocked nowadays, continues to live and prosper in modern times, promoted by the very people who mock the allegedly old ways of the Country. From environmental policies to economics, and from illegal immigration to sexual perversion, once the German mainstream has chosen sides, the pressure to make the others conform to the German way of doing things mounts slowly but irresistibly, until a chastisement comes that makes them think better of it… for a while.
Mind, it is not desire of domination. It is authentic thinking that what they believe is better for you. It is difficult to explain to an Anglo-Saxon or a Southern European, because they come from a different cultural environment. But live the day to day “German-ness” for a number of years and you will understand what I mean.
You might say that we have many examples of PC madness in other Countries, too, the UK being one of the most prominent. But having lived in both Countries, I can assure you that the Brits have “freedom antibodies” that the Germans simply lack.
Europe needs to defend itself from the good intentions of the Germans; one day, I think it will. Let us hope, for them and for us all, that it will not have to be through a conflict that utterly crushes them, likely curing their “German Ways” once and for all.
The rag Daily Mail (yes, the one with the half naked women, the dirty gossip and other low pleasures for the dumb among the working class) has an article that tries to be sympathetic to the Evil Clown, also known as Pope Francis. I also have a link to Euronews, which at least does not have the half naked women and lurid articles.
What has the man done, to deserve to be defended by such august authorities?
He has invited the faithful to pray for illegals trying to enter Italy.
The reaction was, how shall I put it, robustly Italian. Some translations:
“Enough! Please stop with this and put on another record” (this is an Italian expression, reserved to those who always talk about the same stuff)
“Later, when you have a moment between a preaching on the migrants and a sermon on the migrants, tell us something on the abused children and the destroyed families of Bibbiano” (this is a scandal about the fostering of children)
“If, perhaps, after 4 years spent only talking about migrants, you could tell us some words about Jesus, Mary, the Resurrection, the Holy Ghost, Hell, and the Gospels, I swear that we would not be offended”.
“You have broken”*. (You should be) kicked in the ass up to Avignon!”
“Go to do” **. To look at your face gives me…….” (image is cut here, I think it goes on with “nausea” or the like).
Now that we have examined the vox populi, let us dare a little sociological examination of the event.
Up to very few years ago, it would have been unthinkable that a Pope is bombarded with insults on Twitter. If this had happened, the insults would not have come from Catholics. Moreover, any insults would have been countered by an immensely strong reaction in defence of the (Catholic) Pope. In short, anti-Catholic criticisms to a Catholic Pope would not make the news.
This here is different. These tweets come from people who, Catholic or not, see in Francis just what he is: a propagandist for the destruction of Europe. Hence, the treatment reserved to people Italians do not respect (the colourful expression above) or the polite observation that a Pope should actually be Catholic.
What is happening is the brutal fact that the Evil Clown has lost face. He has lost face on a massive scale. This is not anymore a small number of Catholics enraged at the antics of the man. This is the entire Italian Nation realising what a tool he is, and not thinking that the man is worth of respect. Some of the expressions you read are reserved to people considered common muck, or nothing more than scoundrels.
The game is up. The people are angry. The tolerance threshold for a tool like Francis is getting lower.
I can see the day when he is either pelted with foul tomatoes (less probable, because the police would intervene instantly) or booed and insulted by the Catholic masses on St Peter’s Square.
He can’t say he didn’t have it coming. Sawing and reaping comes to mind.
Poor, poor Frankie: how far away the wheelchairs seem now!
* less impolite version of “you have broken our balls”, a colourful expression meaning “you are being really annoying now”.
** less impolite, shortened version of “go f@kk yourself”.
The very stupid and always obscene Daily Mail (therefore, no link) reports of a Catholic priest now deciding that he is a “she”.
I will spare you the drooling of the stupid rag, the obsessive description of the poor madman as “she”, the usual rubbish about being “trapped” in the body of another sex, and the like.
I only ask this: how could this tool be made a priest in the first place? How could it be that no one noticed his obvious deviation? Who are the people responsible for him passing the various steps of the path that leads to ordination? Will the “Catholic” press pick up on this story?
This sad basket case is now 37: it is realistic that he was a real priest, not merely in a seminary training to become one, for 6 years. More questions arise: why has his bishop not noticed? Why has, in fact, no one noticed? The better question might actually be: who has noticed? And what happened then?
If this was 1 April I would think this is an April Fish, but I am afraid it isn’t: it is the reality of the Catholic Church in England in the early XXI Century.
When Pius XIII becomes Pope, he will have to purge the seminaries and hierarchy in this Country like it’s Torquemada Time.
The second most disgusting thing? “Father” has now adopted a daughter. The Country is really going down the drain.
The most disgusting thing of them all? A rag with a mass audience encouraging the madness, every bit of it.
Wake up, Europe.
You have become a sad parody of the Christian continent you once were.
A lesbian lives with another lesbian.
They allowed to adopt a foster daughter.
The foster daughter “identifies” as a boy.
The two lesbians bitch around because they cannot send the girl to boys’ summer camp
This truly gives you the measure of how far we have come on our road towards collective madness.
It has come to the point when even TV channels with a mass audience are terrified (because I am afraid, at least in part, this is what it is) not to report about the grievances of these mental hospital tools lest the HomoNazis start a war against them, and actually report about it in a way that prevents every suspicion that they are not “feeling” for the “plight” of these satanical people.
This would have been considered utter madness only a few decades ago. It is now mainstream reading for the daily brainwashing of the gregarious, unthinking masses.
We need to put an end to this and I must say, President Trump is not doing anywhere near what he should.
Another sign, perhaps, of the madness of the times.
I have written just yesterday a post wishing, like so many times in the past, that the Lord may take out the Evil Clown as soon as may be.
Alas, it wasn’t to be yesterday. But we can hope.
In the meantime, yesterday the news was published of the appointment of seven (read: seven) women to the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life.
I understand the Congregation now has 16 members; of whom five Cardinals, fours Bishops, and seven women.
This will be fun.
Pope Evil never ceases to show how much he hates the Church. Every day, he thinks how he can demolish a piece of what She is, and substitute it for a piece of FrancisChurch, a satanic mixture of arrogance, incompetence, corruption, social envy, faithlessness, homosexuality, paedophilia and, clearly, feminism.
If this man could become a dervish, or a shaman, he would do it.
Just to spite you.
What can the remaining faithful do against this scourge?
Remain faithful to the truth that has always been taught. Nourish yourself from the immense patrimony of Church tradition. Pray every day that this disgrace may cease to do damage today, by death or conversion (whichever comes first, but please today). Add this latest innovation to the list of things that need to be reverted back to sanity when the Evil Clown finally (as they say in Italy) stretches his paws. Do not accept compromises and and keep fighting every future Pope who, under the pretence of getting rid of the most extreme forms of FrancisMadness, keeps some of his “innovations” in place and continues the wrecking of the Church, albeit in a more intelligent way than this idiot is doing. Pray more, and do penance. Reflect that this man is the way given to you by Providence to actually, by His Grace, save yourself by way of sheer contrast, no matter how many will merit hell by following him.
Most of all, reflect that his V II predecessors, including JP II, carried the germs that have now given us this satanic disease.
This madness will have an end when the root of the problems is eradicated, and the root is the Second Vatican Council.
Every day, our Lord shows us the slippery slope originated by thinking that the truth can be “updated”, and that the Church can or should be “adapted” to the times.
You start with John XXIII, you end exactly where we are now.
If this cretin is to have a function, it should be this: the mass realisation that such a scale of evil would never have happened, if V II had not opened the door for it in the first place.
Die soon, Pope Feminist.
The only good you do is an involuntary one, and it is to remind Catholics of the beauty of the faith you have betrayed.
You ask me if I see any signs that the Vatican, under Pope Francis, is taking proper steps to address the serious issues of abuse. My answer is simple: Pope Francis himself is covering up abuse right now, as he did for McCarrick.
These are the terrible words of probably the most prestigious, credible voice today that has once worked in the Vatican: Archbishop Vigano’.
This alone gives you the state of the mass media today, considering that a comparatively small outlets like LifeSiteNews has no qualms in publishing material that has either scared the legal eagles at the WaPo or, more likely, has displeased their internal political censors.
The allegations are terrible. The first is a case of abuse of seminaries, squashed with the persecution of the whistle blower and the consecration to priest of the homosexual, long-term molester. The other one is the appointment to a very high position of a prelate from Honduras, clearly linked to the notorious Cardinal Maradiaga, notwithstanding an atrociously damning report sent to the Vatican, and of which it is completely unrealistic to think that Francis was not informed, or wanted to be informed but wasn’t.
The picture that emerges is this: the Vatican has long become a nest of homosexual, predatory vipers, whilst Francis not only looks, but encourages the process.
It is very clear that if Francis is not a closeted homosexual himself (which appears increasingly more probable, as a normal person would instinctively recoil from the contact with so many people of that sort), he is a man in a symbiotic relationship with them, keeping them afloat at all levels of the hierarchy after they propelled him to the very top in the past, and now help him to push his socialist and sacrament-destroying agenda at every step.
The extent of the evil going on in the Vatican becomes more and more terrifying as the years go by.
Clearly, our esteemed Cardinals have nothing to say against it, apart from, very likely, trying to get information to Archbishop Vigano’ in order to appease their conscience; then it seems very clear that scandals like the ones Vigano’ mentioned cannot but have reached a selected but not irrelevant number of powerful ears, before they reached him.
The smoke of Satan coming from the Vatican indicates that Satan is having a huge barbecue. Francis is there at the grill, dishing satanic steaks left and right to all those who want to eat them, and to many who wouldn’t want but, actually, do.
God bless Archbishop Vigano’: a man obviously so respected that he still manages to be a contact point for the cowardly “resistance” in the Vatican, and so uncomfortable for the powers that be that the Washington Post censors him, lest he makes Francis look too bad.
Freedom is God-given. This elementary truth, so ingrained in the psyche of right thinking Americans, has an obvious corollary, that is too often neglected in repressive Europe: the freedom to have weapons (particularly: guns) to defend both oneself and one’s loved ones, and that god-given freedom itself.
The Lefties understand this: some of them (the naive and unthinking majority) confusedly, and some of them (the manipulating, scheming minority) clearly.
Real freedom is the freedom that comes from God, and what comes from God can never be taken away. But if you don’t believe in God, you will not recognise a universal, God-given right to bear and carry arms, because you will not recognise the general principle of a God-given freedom in the first place.
Leftists want a controlled society, a society in which freedom is limited to what the Lefties themselves consider appropriate for their subjects. It is no surprise that this would become, as it unavoidably has to, limitation of the right to speak your mind. It is even more evident that what is at the very root of freedom, the ability to actually defend it, will be targeted first.
We see this everywhere. Left is godlessness and gun control, and gun control is godlessness and leftist thinking.
The whoring singer (and she is a bad singer at that) who offends the name of the Blessed Virgin for her stage antics has just finished to give a concert for the conclusion of that series of promotions of depravity that they called pride month, or something like that.
Unsurprisingly, gun control featured heavily in her promotion of perversion.
It really is one and the same: hate God, hate freedoms, hate guns.
Anti Gun is anti God. If Lefties don’t understand it, they feel it, instinctively. Their rebellion to a superior order and their desire to substitute it for a man-made control nightmare must perforce go through the suppression of the God-given freedoms that underpin not only society, but religious thinking itself. Man-made wannabe utopias never have place for God; either officially so (as in all Communist dictatorships) or as a fake one produced for the use of the oppressors, like the Goddess Reason or the Nazi mystique inspired by Pre-Christian beliefs.
Anti Gun is Anti God.
Think of this whenever you read of some deranged whore promoting her man-made, childish, freakish, total control utopia, where the Helotes are kept – for their own good, of course – at a short leash by the enlightened minority of progressive minds who take drugs, become alcoholic, indulge in all sorts of perversion and, in more than some cases, commit suicide.
Athanasius is a pious Bishop in the time of the Arian heresy. The controversy is raging, and our Athanasius is deeply afflicted by it.
He would like for this to stop. Alas, it seems that even the Pope is on the wrong side. Certainly, the vast majority of his peers are. Some say, ninety percent.
What is a pious bishop to do? Denounce the heresy and go against the Pope?
He would be excommunicated, don’t you know? He would be forced to go into exile. He might even be killed!
And the schism, the schism! The Church would be torn asunder! And for what? There is obviously no chance of prevailing. An open conflict would only consolidate the heresy, make it even more official!
The numbers are just not there, says the good, pious bishop to himself. It will never work. He would only be doing the work of the devil.
And then there is the matter of the disobedience. He would be disobeying the Pope! How can a Bishop disobey the Pope? This can’t be right, surely? Surely?
And so our good, pious Bishop Athanasius kept praying, and did nothing. Well, he uttered here and there some words about this or that issue; but in the essentials, he did nothing. The unity of Mother Church must be preserved, you see.
Let us put everything in the hands of the Lord.
He will sort it out.
Say it again?
Are you sure?
You are saying that Athanasius did, in fact, exactly the contrary of what I have stated?
Openly fighting heresy, not fearing excommunication, exile, threats to his life? Appointing his own Bishops? Not looking at all at how many were on his side, because Christ was on his side? Not caring one bit whether the fight between right and wrong would cause a schism, because it is infinitely preferable that the Church is right than that the Church is united in heresy?
Are you sure?
Oh well, I suppose the book I have just read, History of Arianism, Francispress, 2019, foreword by Cardinal Cupich, must have been somewhat inaccurate….
Cardinal Brandmueller has thundered against the instrumentum laboris of the Amazonian synod. The accusations are heavy, and deservedly so: heresy and possible apostasy.
If someone does something good, it will not be your humble correspondent who criticises him. Cardinal Brandmueller behaved, this time, like a Cardinal. However, I note the following:
- Almost all quotations are from V II documents. This guy is 90 and about to die, and he still has not understood where the problem lies.
- It must be clear to any reasonable person that this Amazonian stuff would have never taken place, if Brandmueller himself and the other three kitten in red had whistled after very publicly wetting their lips.
This is a bit like Hindenburg criticising Hitler. Whilst Brandmueller was never the Hindenburg of Francis, his refusal to act on the obvious heresy of Amoris Laetitia makes him an enabler of all heresies that came, and will come, after that disgraceful document.
And in case you ask why I single out Brandmueller, who is less bad than most, in preference to the many other Cardinals who are far more culpable than him, I answer this: that from a Catholic Cardinal like him, or Burke, I expect that they act way more than I do a faithless commie like Cupich; and that someone who believes in God must have a much clearer picture of the price to pay for his betrayal and lack of action than someone who clearly only believes in social justice and social envy like Cupich or, for that matter, Francis.
Understand this: a priest needs to exercise some prudence, lest his parish be deprived of a needed Catholic voice. But a Bishop already has an unconditional duty to speak. A Cardinal has, arguably, an even clearer and more urgent duty, as it is widely believed that the fastest way to stop a heretical Pope goes via the 150 or so Cardinals, not via the 8000 or so Bishops.
As to the consequences, I smile when people write on my comment box nonsense like “you can’t condemn him: he would be persecuted!”. We are not talking of the accountant of the fourth floor here. We are not talking of the baker down the road. We are talking of bishops and cardinals: people told and trained to die for Christ at a moment’ s notice, and glad to be able to offer their martyrdom.
A Cardinal dresses in red so that he is constantly reminded of the martyrdom of so many before him. His is not to reason what might happen after he speaks. His job is to speak. If he gets poisoned, may his reward in heaven be bigger, and I hope he will be prudent enough not to find himself in a place where he could be poisoned (look at Vigano’: faithful, but smart!). But the duty to speak is unquestionably there, and no fear of sanction, or death, or torture can speak against it.
We are talking of bishops and cardinals here, not accountants and bakers. Yes, from everyone is martyrdom expected. But from the first, it is expected first.
Cardinal Brandmueller has adopted the Burkian strategy: no action in essentials, but criticism whenever it is not too dangerous. He does not even criticise Francis, absurdly pretending that Francis is not behind all this. It is still a criticism from a fairly safe place, from a 90 years old who should have much more pressing worries.
Summa summarum: thanks, Your Grace.
But not good enough.
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.
“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.
