More Minneapolis liturgical abuse – this time, with Moloch! April 15, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Basics, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, Liturgy, persecution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, the enemy, the return.
Amazingly, there is a tabernacle somewhere within what I am sure is called “the worship space.” How you like these apples?:
What is the deal with progressives and puppets!
Do you think that leering bull-like figure above looks disturbing like the demonic god moloch/baal? Do they know what used to happen to babies within baal’s searing arms? Human sacrifice?
Oh wait……how many of these folks are perfectly fine with abortion?
Is that supposed to be the Consecration above? Or is that a re-enactment of the Last Supper? Why are their animals in the upper room? Why are their women? This makes no sense. It’s like they crossed the Nativity with the Last Supper. Maybe someone gets this better than I. I’m also not sure how prevalent jackrabbits and raccoons are in the Holy Land.
Why does everything look so hideous and poorly done?
The group that put on this little exhibition is called “Heart of the Beast” puppet theater. Revealing?
Sheesh……die nervous disorder, die. Another 50 kids (or 15, or however many were there) pretty much lost to the Faith forever, invincibly convinced this, this stupidity, this hassattery, is what Catholicism is.
Liturgical Abuse: Blessing pagan stones at Mass in Minnesota April 14, 2014Posted by tantamergo in abdication of duty, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, Liturgy, sadness, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, Spiritual Warfare.
Warning, the music in the video below will require significant amounts of brain bleach to eradicate.
It seems there has been a severe abuse ongoing at Masses in the troubled Archdiocese of Minneapolis for some time. Stones used in what seem obviously to be pagan worship services are blessed during Novus Ordo Masses. According to Tancred at Eponymous Flower, these stones are said to be the bones of the “Earth Mother” and are heated by fire for use in sweat lodges and accompanying spirit journeys:
This profanation you see above? The priest calls it “The Transubstantiation of the Blessed Earthen Rock Ceremony.” It is confirmed this takes place as part of the, ahem, Mass. So, what….the rock turns into our Lord and Savior? That is straight up blasphemy, in addition to being the gravest sacrilege.
First of all, much Native American spirituality is animist and overtly pagan. Secondly, these rituals and their use have strong new age overtones, finding the “god” within, and all that. Thirdly, the entire practice of sweat lodges and “spirit journeys” (the latter very common in new age, which has adopted a great deal of Native American spirituality) is disordered to say the least, since it involves self-hypnosis and opens one up to potential demonic influence. Some might argue the entire pagan, animist practice is demonic.
As such, do we really have to say it has no place in a Catholic Mass? Is this the much vaunted “inculturation” about which we hear so much with regard to disordered/abusive presentations of the Novus Ordo?
Tancred reports this has gone on in Minneapolis for years, and that the Archdiocese is well aware. In a normal time, one would have to ask, how can this be, but we are not in a normal time. In fact, things like this are so common, and exasperation so rife among the faithful, that many have become either beaten down or cynical.
It is difficult not to see scandals like this, and the failure to terminate them immediately, as just one more sign of a profound lack of faith among our Church leaders, and one more tendency towards being far more concerned with men and their opinions, than with God and His just Rights. It is also difficult not to see in this, once again, the perversion of incredibly sacred Catholic practice with some foolish, uninspired, and dangerous “ecumenism.” This seems the trend in almost all Catholic ecumenism: sacred rites are profaned to grant some special privilege to a separated sect or some completely alien (and incompatible) religion, while there is rarely if ever a quid pro quo from the other side. It’s just more banality, more watering down, more humanism, more laziness, more cowering, and more soft leftism.
I’m very tired of it. But I don’t matter. What matters, I wholeheartedly believe, is that it is profoundly offensive to God. And all these abuses will have to be answered for some day.
This priest, Fr. Michael Tegeder, obviously needs a lot of prayers. An aging hippy with a well receded hair line and a sad ponytail…….he’s like a walking cliche of the nightmare post-VII priest. I also strongly suggest making Communions of reparation for this blasphemy against Our Crucified Lord and the Holy Ghost.
Here’s some brainwash:
Mas. If have a hard time seeing that lollipop garbage in the nightmare video at the top as being in the same religion:
I can remember when Colorado was a normal state. Conservative, even. Then hundreds of thousands of Californians, having wrecked their own state, moved in. The state is now really divided, but the leftists have the upper hand in the state government. Lord, please never let that happen here.
The radicals, who have also passed stupid laws against certain kinds of firearms, have a new bill called Senate Bill 175. According to Archbishop of Denver Samuel Aquila, it basically seeks to enshrine abortion in Colorado law forever, and forestall any future pro-life legislation:
If you haven’t yet heard, there is a very troubling bill being debated in the Colorado State Senate next week. Senate Bill 175, touted as the “Reproductive Health Freedom Act,” passed on a party line vote in committee this past Thursday. I am grateful to every person who showed up to oppose the radical bill.
This over-reaching piece of legislation would essentially shut down any attempt to pass life-affirming legislation in Colorado ever again. More than that, it enshrines the “right to abortion” into Colorado law. It’s being praised by anti-life organizations such as NARAL and ThinkProgress as “the first of its kind” in the country and “ambitious.” It enshrines the culture of death into law and ignores science.
This bill would prevent lawmakers from enacting laws such as ultrasound requirements, which we all know—particularly from the work of the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative here in Colorado—have done so much to give mothers vital information about their pregnancy, and thus save countless children from imminent death.
It prevents common sense regulations like waiting periods, restrictions on abortion pills (particularly for minors), and parental notification policies. Advocates of this bill seek the absolute “right to abortion” for girls as young as 10 or 11 without a parent’s knowledge, guidance or advice. Parents are seen as unfit in the moral guidance of their children.
Finally, this bill would eliminate abortion clinic health code regulations, which pro-abortion advocates label as “burdensome.” Remember Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia, and the horrific images and stories of women nearly dying on the abortionist’s table?
I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that pro-aborts are trying this. Over the past few years, state legislatures around the country have imposed numerous restrictions on abortion, one of the most effective being that enacted here in Texas just last year.
Abortion is absolutely, 100% critical for the entire sexular pagan program to destroy Christian culture. The very destructive culture that has been deliberately visited upon the former Christendom over the past 100 years requires abortion. All these things: contraception, fornication, adultery, sexual depravity, divorce,etc., require abortion as their backstop. It is fornication, “living together,” hooking up, etc,. among “heterosexuals” that drives the entire sexular pagan agenda. There simply are not, as of yet, enough sodomites, polyamorists, and other perverts to destroy a culture. But getting the vast majority of “normal” people, even “Christian” people, to engage in these immoral activities has been the very vehicle of the sexular pagan revolution.
Fornication sells. Fornication/adultery backed up with the use of contraception has led millions to leave any true semblance of the practice of Christianity, and into lives of wantonness that are unprecedented in their scope and banality. But since contraception often and always (over enough time) fails, abortion is 100% absolutely vital to the entire sexular pagan leftist program. The entire advance of leftism in the West has been due to decay in sexual morality. So the entire leftist program depends utterly on abortion.
So, they are willing to do anything, give up anything, to keep abortion around. And since there has been much recent success in nibbling away at baby killing at the state level, they are now seeking to stop that through their own legislative activity. I take this as a very serious attempt to stop all progress in pro-life laws, at least in Colorado. Which is a shame, because Colorado did not used to be a state that would embrace such a thing, and I know there are still many, many good, faithful souls there.
Archbishop Aquila asks for everyone to take some time to pray that this bill be stopped. You can also contact the Colorado Catholic Conference, or, better yet, look up the bill’s supporters in the Colorado Senate and contact them directly. The bill’s two sponsors are Senators Andy Kerr and Jeanne Nicholson.
Perhaps you could, in your charity, offer up a Rosary that this horrific bill be blocked and defeated. Or a Novena. There have been many small steps to see abortion made more difficult to obtain around the country. There has been a good deal of progress in the past few years. But that could all be undone should measures like this gain support, and, God forbid, one day wind up at the Supreme Court, where anything can happen.
As a final aside, I will also pray that we will one day see our own good Bishop Farrell offer a Mass directly outside a mill, as Bishop Sheridan just did, or at least have a constant presence of priests offering prayers, performing exorcisms, and the like. A 20 mile Good Friday procession is a wonderful thing, but one Mass offered outside one of these mills would be such a blow to satan and his many eager human acolytes, that the pro-aborts may never recover.
That’s something I’ll keep praying for. And I’ll also pray that Archbishop Aquila grow ever more faithful and participate more and more in the restoration of the Faith.
More TLMs will help.
Sebelius’ Reign of Terror Is Over April 11, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Abortion, asshatery, Basics, contraception, disaster, episcopate, error, General Catholic, horror, persecution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society.
Cruella Deville has outlived her usefulness for the Zero. She’s been thrown under the bus, like so many before her, ostensibly due to the manifold failures of Obamacare:
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has resigned from the Obama administration, a move that comes just months after Americans started signing up for health insurance coverage under Obamacare.
President Barack Obama accepted her resignation earlier this week and will nominate the Office of Management and Budget’s Sylvia Matthews Burwell, 48, as the next head of the HHS, the New York Times reported.
The new head of HHS is just a younger version of the same:
Is a hair brush too much to ask? What?
Burwell is not Catholic, at least. So maybe she’ll actually have more respect for Catholic belief than an invincibly convinced heretic.
What am I saying?!? She’s a lefty, and already, during the government shutdown theater of last fall, she was the one that directed stupid, draconian steps – like closing national monuments that cost nothing to operate – in order to amp up the pressure on Republicans. She’s a Clinton loyalist, so I think we know her. She’s obviously pro-abort to the core, or she wouldn’t have gotten the job.
Meet the new boss, same as the old.
Does Sebelius have a reputation left to detract from?
Michael Voris on the homofascist tyranny April 10, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Basics, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, sadness, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society.
Good word. Good video, but the first minute plus is ads for future programs.
Christians are derided as “Christofascists” merely for maintaining that what was always believed to be a sin, still is.
Homofascism is something entirely different: it is a real movement to so utterly crush all dissent from the now dominant open cultural obeisance towards perversion that such dissent is all but impossible. It is incredible how quickly this has occurred, it makes the previous social revolutions seem placid by comparison.
An interesting thought – the internet was billed as a wonderful vehicle for empowerment and letting the little guy have a voice. But through the constant barrage of certain messages, and even more chillingly, thought police that roam the internet, reporting heretics and singling them out for annihilation, the internet is increasingly becoming a vehicle for severe repression and social control. Unless one has a large and vocal following, like Phil Robertson, one can see their life destroyed via one of these internet campaigns. As we move forward, many of us (heh) may be made to suffer for things we’ve said or done at one point or another on the internet.
It might just turn out, as Ferrara argues, that so many of these man-made means of granting liberty are a chimera, not only doomed to fail, but doomed to become instruments of repression. It is one of the highest ironies of our age that in our supposedly “free, liberal” democracies, government is far more invasive, rapacious, and less responsive to individual needs than were the “tyrannical” monarchies of the former Catholic social order.
I don’t intend to go deeply into that topic right now, but you might want to think about whether that might be true.
And here I just did a post about detraction. But seeing this has already been covered by secular blogs way, way bigger than mine, I think it fits under the definition of public knowledge.
One might expect this in San Francisco or New York, but not Lumberton, Texas. For those outside Texas (and probably many within), Lumberton is small logging town deep in the pine forests of SE Texas (yes, Texas has forests). The school district there has actually been the site of a number of scandals of late, from teachers proselytizing for Obama and bashing conservatives to having students dress up in burqas as part of some kind of goofy multi-culti foolishness. Even though the area is probably 60% hardcore conservative, the district apparently hired a left-liberal superintendent.
In this case, a man who was married and straight up male acting until about 2 years ago, when he went through a traumatic divorce, has now decided he is a woman and has been working as a substitute teacher for 5th graders at a Lumberton school. There seems a tight correlation between the divorce and the sudden discovery of this poor soul’s “true identity” (talk about Stockholm Syndrome).
So the whole thing’s a mess, and the future employment of this very lost soul will be debated at the school board meeting in Lumberton tonight:
I first heard about the issue when my youngest brother came home and told me about the kids talking about a male substitute teacher that was in a different class. This teacher was signing his name as Mrs. I thought that was strange, but I did not realize the extent of what was going on until I heard Chip Darby talking about the issue on freedom 1300. Apparently there was a male teacher wearing a dress and makeup at the Lumberton Intermediate School.
The teacher’s name is Laura Jane Klug (born Kurt Klug). I looked him up on Facebookand what I found was an emotionally disturbed and confused older man. He has not always wanted to be a woman.
According to a note he posted on his Facebook page on July 7th, 2011 titled “How Much More Can I Take?” Kurt Klug was emotionally distraught and seemingly ready to give in with his life because of the pain of his female wife leaving him. The pain and distraught of his wife leaving him must have driven him to decide that he wanted to become a woman. [So much for born that way] From 2011 until now, Kurt changed his name to Laura Jane Klug and started dressing up like a woman and acting like a woman……
Let me get one thing straight, I do not hate this man, nor am I angry at him. I feel bad for him. [Ditto] He was so hurt and emotionally distraught that he was driven to wanting a radical change. [In fact, this is the second such story I've read in the past two months, where a divorce drove a formerly normal man into embracing extreme perversion. It is a gross perversion of nature for people to pretend to be the other sex. Sacred Scripture repeatedly decries people who fall into such extreme confusion/perversion as balefully sinful.] He seems like he was and maybe still is a Christian, [deep East Texas is mission territory for the Church] but he is certainly hurting and has lost his way. We all have issues and this is his issue.
That being said, a school house with young, impressionable, easily distracted and easily confused children is not the place for this man to be. The school has very strict dress codes and boys cannot even have long hair. The environment is controlled to minimize distractions so that the students can learn. Like it or not, a transvestite is a distraction. Not only that, he frightened and confused many students who then went home to their parents who had to have age inappropriate conversations with their children.
So, we’ll see how this plays out. Many parents are outraged, but, shockingly, some parents are supportive. That’s an indicator of just how nutso upside down the world has become. But that dang TV signal reaches Lumberton as well as just about anywhere else in the contiguous US. And TV has perverted the thinking of millions.
There are several reports that this teacher is a huge distraction. Apparently, he’s doesn’t pass very well for a woman. And many kids are confused. In a sane time, such a troubled individual as someone who can’t even decide what sex they are would never be a candidate for a teacher.
I won’t go into detail on the stats again, but while negative life outcomes for aficionados of the sins of sodom and sapphos are many times higher those for without those proclivities, those for trans-types are literal orders of magnitude higher. No single population group is more prone to suicide, drug abuse, suicidal sexual behavior, deliberate self-inflicted injury, severe mental problems, or general unhappiness than those who have become so confused and lost as to no longer know what sex they are. The suicide rate for transgender types is over 33%.
I know most of my readers are well aware that the public schools are no place for their children. But examples like this aside, they might not be the very worst place for your kids. A priest the other night ranked methods of educating children from best to worst, so far as keeping your kids in the Faith:
- A very rare, private, non-diocesan good Catholic school
- Private evangelical protestant school
- Public schools
- Diocesan Catholic schools
And in fact, diocesan “Catholic” schools are a very distant 5th place; your kids are much better off in public schools than in diocesan Catholic schools, because in those schools – very rare exceptions aside – kids here from people who call themselves Catholic, and especially authority figures, “oh, you don’t have to believe that!” Or, “we don’t believe that anymore.” And these kids become so lost and so convicted of error, because they’ve heard it from Catholic authority figures, that it takes a literal moral miracle to convert them back.
And it was through Catholic education that much of the revolution within and against the Church was executed. Numerous religious orders fell into the modernist heresy during the course of the 1950s and 60s, and they subsequently formed an entire generation of young Catholics in that heresy. Those formerly young Catholics are the old grey heads around nowadays that continue to clamor for impossibilities like womyn priestesseses and Catholic acceptance of abortion. Frankly, most of those 60s kids fell away from the Faith decades ago. There have been very few of those moral miracles the priest related.
Very scary – the coming “new world order church?” April 9, 2014Posted by tantamergo in abdication of duty, Basics, disaster, episcopate, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, Sacraments, sadness, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, the enemy.
That is what That The Bones You have Crushed May Thrill is calling the scandal of the spectacle surrounding the baptism of a baby – conceived using techniques that would have shocked Dr. Frankenstein – born into a lesbian couple in Argentina: the “new world order church.” Those parents also received Confirmation, in spite of manifestly persisting in an unchaste relationship (there is no doubt these women are not chaste, the art they produce is pornographic).
If you want to see the “glorious” moment, watch this:
I know there are arguments on both sides of the debate on whether baptism should have been granted to this baby. Certainly, the child has done nothing wrong. But infant baptism is supposed to be based on the idea that the child will be raised in a moral, virtuous Catholic home. The faith of the parents and godparents is called upon to instill the same faith in the child until that child comes of age to develop their own faith.
Claiming that these women can somehow provide that basis in faith is, to me, ludicrous. It is scandalous as all get out, like letting a satanist couple have their child baptized (Dear Lord, is that next?). It seems to me to make a mockery of the faith. An unchaste, porn-producing lesbian couple cannot be considered to be faithful! And their baby was produced by a method the church abhors – in vitro fertilization through the use of donated sperm!
The fact that this baptism was so heavily publicized (largely at the couple’s behest) indicates to me that this entire event was orchestrated strictly for advancing “the cause.” We know adherents to “the cause” have many friends in the – far, far too many. I also have to wonder if it is any coincidence that this baptism occurred in Argentina, certainly the first such scandalous baptisms to occur in South America, and quite possibly the world. Is a none-too-subtle message being sent?
Is this the Church’s 21st century understanding of mercy, that sin, basically, doesn’t matter, all that matters is that people – no matter how distant their hearts are from Jesus Christ and His Church – go through a few public ceremonies of the Faith and give a sort of wink and a nod to Jesus, while their real god is themselves? But I thought the pope was violently against this kind of crass formalism?
Dark days ahead. The priest at the catechism class last night was explicating how the sodom and sapphos crowd are going to be the prime instigators of the persecution, within and without the Church. Be prepared to see those who loathe, hate, denounce, and torment you the most call themselves “Catholic.”
Lord, have mercy on us.
There is an epidemic of teacher sex abuse of minors….. April 8, 2014Posted by tantamergo in abdication of duty, Basics, catachesis, Christendom, disaster, General Catholic, horror, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society.
……and quite incredibly, it is, for the first time (that is known), involving nearly as many women abusers as men. In fact, it could be more women than men. Such is the state of the culture today.
Robert Stacy McCain has done yeoman’s work over the past several months identifying and cataloging this epidemic of abuse in the public school system. The rate at which students are being abused by teachers – nationwide, there are typically multiple allegations every week – far eclipses anything that has ever been claimed against the Catholic Church. At present, it seems hundreds of students, and quite possibly thousands, are being abused by teachers – every year. Where is the scandal? Where is the nonstop media coverage? Where are the calls for investigations? Where the calls for reform?
Most of all, where are the lawsuits? Oh, I forgot……most states, if not all of them, have passed laws exempting their public schools from just the kind of lawsuits that have been directed against the Church. Even more, these same legislatures that have made their schools invulnerable to sex abuse lawsuits have repeatedly, and, I might add, after the fact, extended the statutes of limitations on sex abuse lawsuits against churches going back many decades now, the better to make the trial lawyers – always big givers to politicians, but most especially, democrats – more wealthy. This whole situation stinks to high heaven and is just one more example of the ongoing cultural double-standards and persecution.
As I said, Mr. McCain (whose blog I cannot freely recommend, as there is quite a bit of language and content that is less than pure, and some of it is outright offensive) has done great work cataloging the scope of the ongoing abuse. Just a few recent examples:
- An unstable, mentally ill lesbian (is there any other kind?) seduced a 15 year old girl on a hockey team she was helping coach (the girl was actually the head coach’s daughter). The girl suffered such trauma from this abuse she became severely depressed and attempted suicide.
- This post lists 10 different cases involving recent sexual assaults by women on female students. Ages of the victims range from 12 to 16, but 5 were 14 or younger.
- I won’t link a post from the same day that describes the multiple statutory rapes committed by a female teacher on male students. The teacher was 24, the students were 16-17. I cannot link the post because McCain gave vent to really inappropriate language and imagery. The post goes on to list another half-dozen recent instances of very recent cases (some as recent as last week) involving female teachers having relations with boys, some as young as 13.
- This post discusses the “emerging menace of female predators,” which McCain pins on drives for “sexual equality” and general moral decadence. This post lists further cases involving female teachers assaulting both male and female students – another twelve such instances.
All of these posts were made in the past 10 days. There are many more if you want to dig back further (I don’t recommend it). The point has been made. Can you imagine the constant, unmitigated uproar that would have resulted if even a fraction as many convictions were made against Catholic priests? And yet there seems precious little interest in the media in tying these numerous events together and reporting on what certainly appears to be a growing epidemic of teachers sexually assaulting their students. Mind you, these are only the recent cases involving females. There are about as many cases involving males in the same timeframe. And many of these assaults or instances of abuse likely go unreported. From the data, it would appear that several students are sexually assaulted by teachers, male or female, in this country every single day.
How long will public schools be protected from litigation by parents and former students who suffer from the predations that are allowed to occur on a constant basis? And this does not even mention sexual assaults committed by students against fellow students, another very significant matter. Why should public schools get a pass when other institutions are not so protected? And doesn’t this protection provide a powerful incentive to allow the status quo to continue?
Absent Grace, all these children can now look forward to a lifetime of degrading, very difficult to control desires and sexual dysfunction. I guess one may wonder, if things like this have always gone on in schools. I certainly never heard of such, even if there was a certain English teacher when I was a senior in high school, a divorcee with an alleged rose tattoo on her rear end (rumor? true? I have no idea) that did like to flirt with the boys. I tend to think that especially among women teachers, this is a pretty new phenomenon, and a product of the hyper-sexualized culture, where so many feel compelled to pursue a twisted sexual “ideal.” The worship of youth, and all that – by bedding a youth, one somehow reclaims fading youth?
Anyway, you can mark this post as reason number #10,897 to homeschool your kids.
Dear Lord in Heaven have mercy on this soul April 7, 2014Posted by tantamergo in asshatery, Basics, catachesis, disaster, Ecumenism, General Catholic, horror, martyrdom, sadness, scandals, shocking, sickness, the enemy, unadulterated evil.
Over the weekend, I saw a chilling, horrendous scene from Syria of a Christian being made to apostasize – making the oath that “there is no god but fake allah and mohammad is his fake messenger” – and then being beheaded anyways.
It was so sad on so many levels. There is an extremely, disgustingly graphic video of this barbarity. I won’t put it on my blog. I’ve seen it, but I don’t want want to put it on here. If you really want to see it – and I must tell you, these muslims, they must love being evil, because when they cut off someone’s head, they don’t use a sword and do it in one fell swoop, or even a particularly sharp knife, they take their time about it, so the poor soul actually has time to suffer and even try to resist a bit before expiring – it’s below:
These monsters actually say they’re not going to shoot him because that would be too merciful. I saw some folks criticizing the guy for apostasizing, but courage to resist dozens of armed thugs saying they’ll kill you is supernatural. I pray God is merciful to this poor person.
The reason I’m showing this is because, this may be a fringe movement in islam, but it’s not that fringe. There are millions of muslims who support, actively or passively, this kind of nightmarish extremism. To many in islam, these are the “best” muslims. The entire history of islam is one rife with mindless killing, barbarity, cruelty, backwardness, ignorance, and, more than anything, diabolical hostility towards Christians.
Which is why I have to say what I’m going to say - I wish every prelate in the Church who makes indifferentist statements (and acts) regarding islam would have to sit down for an hour or so to watch such videos (and there are plenty of them) and pray and meditate on what they are doing with their claims that “islam is the religion of peace,” or that “islam is a salvific religion like Christianity.”
For centuries, the Church knew better. For centuries, the Church knew the greatest mortal threat to Christians came from islam. For centuries, Christians died at the hands of muslims. For centuries, muslim preyed on Christians with no provocation. But when Christians, after years of suffering endless cruelties and abuses, finally responded with an offensive to take back former Christian lands – oh, well, this is something to apologize over.
Of course not all muslims are violent, of course there are aspects of islam that are inoffensive, but the history of islam indicates a false religion relentlessly hostile to the Church and far too frequently all human decency.
Church leaders, y0u can talk all you want with muslims, but its pointless and scandalous. They only take it as a sign of weakness and foolishness. I have a very hard time not agreeing. I also have a very hard time not seeing such “ecumenism” as strong indications of weak faith and overt worldliness, but who am I to judge?
The only ecumenism islam has ever understood is the sword.
Principles of Catholic Education April 3, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Basics, catachesis, Christendom, disaster, Domestic Church, family, General Catholic, horror, Latin Mass, persecution, secularism, sickness, Society, the enemy, true leadership.
This is a truly excellent and important sermon. I highly recommend everyone, but especially parents, pay close attention to it. I am going to quote from it extensively because the points made within it are so critical and have such a huge bearing on the many problems parents face in providing a right Catholic education for their children today. The really critical bit is at the end.
What is the purpose of life? To know, love, and serve God in this life in order to be happy with Him in the next. The purpose of life is to get to Heaven. Education serves this purpose. The primary end of marriage is the procreation and education of children, education in the Faith.
The priest then quotes some material from the Christian Brothers, which order was once so deeply involved in Catholic education and played such an immense role in leading so many souls to the life of Grace, but which is now one of the most corrupted, down-trodden, and sadly depraved religious orders out there. Few, if any, religious orders have had more boy-rape lawsuits directed at them than the Christian Brothers. But in their past, before the present chaos, they were an extremely important and influential order.
The point of education is to point them in the right direction, help them grow in virtue, conquer their vices, and pass through the first crisis in life.
The teen years are a time of particular danger for children growing up. Parents must take special care in forming their children in virtue and avoidance of vice in order to keep them from falling into dangerous habits or situations that could lead them from the Faith.
Father quotes from a sexular pagan publication regarding “a religion for a new age,” written by a fallen away Catholic. This article contains the following bit of bile, which seems to have been accepted unquestioningly in most public AND private – including “Catholic” – schools today:
“I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being. There teachers must embody the same selfless dedication of the most rabid fundamentalist preacher, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level – preschool, daycare, or large state university. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new – the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent in its promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of “love thy neighbor” will be finally achieved.“
Note, the “love thy neighbor” bit applies only to those who think exactly like the fallen-away Catholic sexular pagan – otherwise, they will be hated with a white hot passion.
It is truly incredible how many diabolical, hateful falsehoods can be crammed into one paragraph. As we already see, a “post-Christian” culture will not be one of equal rights, benign rationalism, and charity for all, it will be a world of unbounded cruelty, suffering, and, always, will to power. Might makes right, and all that. Basically, Stalin’s Soviet Union unleashed everywhere, or, as Orwell described it, a boot, smashing a human face, forever.
To say this vision has been adopted enthusiastically in almost all schools, even most supposedly Catholic ones, would be an understatement.
As the priest notes, these people – “educators” – are in union with the enemy of God and God’s Holy Church.
I guess I could title this post Welcome to the Persecution, You will be Crushed to a Bloody Pulp.
