I cannot – no one can – follow on my own the breathtaking pace of Francis stupid statements and acts. I have stumbled – why, you will discover if you read to the end – upon an oldish post from the Eponymous Flower. In it, a joker answering to the name Enzo Bianchi went on record with the following, barely believable statement:
“In the Church there are good intentions, but about there are unreal expectations about women: The model Maria, Virgin and Mother, can not be the reference point for the advancement of women in the church. The fashionable, subliminally alleged idea that Mary was more important than St. Peter, is a stupid idea, just as the wheels of a car would be more important than the steering wheel.”
First, let us counter the insult to the Blessed Virgin with the Litany of Loreto.
After we have recited it, and have calmed ourselves, let us try to reason about what this joker is trying to achieve; possibly, without damaging our coronaries.
The “advancement of women in the Church” is here the main point. Our understanding of, well, everything must be subordinated to it. Even (Lord, give me strength!) the way we see the Blessed Virgin as the model for every woman.
The revolutionary premise is not even hidden. It is the same as if I would say “the model Christ cannot be the reference point for the advancement of social justice in South America”. It is a complete denial of any Christian understanding before one even starts reasoning about Christianity.
Religion must shape our lives, not – as this man thinks – the contrary. Mary is the model for every woman exactly because the Church has always said so. in this, the “advancement of women” is neither here nor there, which is not at all casual considering how little “emancipated” (and therefore, in Mr Bianchi’s a-Christian view, “non-advanced”) Mary was.
This madman reflects the madness of our times: our stupid new idols become the new religion; after which, we start revisiting and criticising the Real Thing according to our new fashion.
There has never been any need for “emancipation”, which is exactly why Mary never felt any need or desire for it. Go one centimetre into thinking that Mary’s life, social standing, and general place within the family was wrong and you can’t call yourself a Christian, because what you are saying is that Christianity has, for two thousand years, promoted a wrong social model, striking hard at the very core of human existence, by way of the very life of the Blessed Virgin.
Our joker and wannabe “fake monk” says it even more openly, declaring his enmity with Christianity with explicit words:
“We are not yet able to take unequivocal equality between men and women seriously. The path of the Church is still very far, because even all the men are at the decision-levers, while women are restricted to low services”
If the Church is “still very far” for Mr Bianchi’s new religion (“unequivocal equality”, meaning “treating women as if they had a prick”; and you must be blind in order not to see what this has done to them), the Church and Christianity have been a fraud these two thousand years. This is a frontal attack on Christianity, and an open insult to the evidently, in this perspective, weak and wrongly submissive Blessed Virgin.
I rest my case.
You may ask: “Mundabor dear, why do you care for jokers like this wannabe monk, when you could be drinking tea whilst listening to beautiful Christmas carols?” My answer would be : 1) because this joker not only writes in several secular newspaper; 2) because the same clown is very officially a “consultor” of the Pope, via the Pontifical Council for the Sabotage of Catholicism in any Way we can (official name could be slightly different); 3) because the man now even openly vilifies the apparitions of Fatima.
Francis The Evil Clown is evidently looking for new ways to insult the Blessed Virgin, the Church, and Christianity as a whole, and finds that all the rubbish continuously coming out of his mouth is not near enough. Therefore, he surrounds himself with “consultants” helping him to demolish the Church as much as he, and they, can. These people then proceed to tell you that the Blessed Virgin isn’t a model of their new religion, and that Fatima must have been a swindle because hey, the Blessed Virgin did not collect the necessary number of PC points by not mentioning the Holocaust; which, you understand, it’s the new litmus test for saintliness.
So much for the Evil Clown, of whom some not exceedingly intelligent woman once commented on this blog that he must be fine, “because he is devoted to the Blessed Virgin”. Go figure.
Denial of Christianity. As a consequence, insult to the Blessed Virgin. As a consequence, attack to Fatima.
From their “consultants” you will recognise them.
