And yet the interreligious crazy train rolls on along. Because……..oh, I don’t even want to bother right now.
I know there have been many reports of the depredations of the lunatic islamists currently ruling large parts of the Fertile Crescent. But here are two you might have missed. First, the muslims seized the 1700 year old Mar Mattai monastery outside Mosul on Sunday (naturally!) this week:
Jihadist militants have taken over a monastery in northern Iraq, one of the country’s best-known Christian landmarks, and expelled its resident monks, a cleric and residents said Monday.
Islamic State (IS) fighters stormed Mar (Saint) Behnam, a 4th century monastery run by the Syriac Catholic church near the predominantly Christian town of Qaraqosh, on Sunday, the sources said.
“You have no place here anymore, you have to leave immediately,” a member of the Syriac clergy quoted the Sunni militants as telling the monastery’s residents.
He said the monks pleaded to be allowed to save some of the monastery’s relics but the fighters refused and ordered them to leave on foot with nothing but their clothes.
Christian residents from the area told AFP the monks walked several miles along a deserted road and were eventually picked up by Kurdish peshmerga fighters who drove them to Qaraqosh.
The Syriac cleric said five monks were expelled from Mar Behnam. Christian families in the area said there may have been up to nine people living at the monastery.
The incident was the latest move by the Islamic State, which last month declared a “caliphate” straddling large swathes of northern Iraq and Syria, to threaten a Christian presence in the region spanning close to two millennia.
That is to say, there were Christians there centuries before mohammad mounted his first goat. Or nine year old, for that matter.
In other news, the raging islamists, driven by Lord knows what kind of massive inferiority complex, blew up Jonah’s tomb this week, after previously ransacking it. And I thought muslims held the Old Testament prophets in esteem? Or is it just blood they worship?
This tomb contained not just the remains of Jonah the great prophet of Nineveh, but also many other priceless works of antiquity. But that does not please crazed Salafist Islam which has been exported around the world by Saudi oil money (and the Saudis and Gulf states basically funded ISIS into being, as well as most of the Syrian “opposition” movements, because this is part of a larger struggle between Persia/Shia and Saudi/Shiite islam). One almost wonders if it’s not time use their oil fields as an open air repository for our nuclear waste.
Just a quick compare and contrast – which great Prophet remained completely chaste and constantly counseled same? Which one counseled peace, benignity, and even suffering enormous insults and barbs without recourse to violence? Ok, now which one not only engaged throughout his adult life in unchaste, promiscuous acts, to the point of taking very young girls as “wives,” treated women like cattle, and counseled same? Which one founded a religion unique among all the non-primitive religions in directing the use of the most extreme violence against all non-believers? Which religion has been spread virtually entirely by that violence? Which one is opposed to reason and not only encourages, but seems to demand ignorance and backwardness?
I also have to ask why if these fighters are so brave and their cause so holy, why do they hide their face?
A little more. In 2003, there were 35,000 Catholics in Mosul. Now there are none. An unintended consequence, to be sure, but one that was foreseeable all the same. That dang war in Iraq unleashed chaos and extremism – just as Pope Saint John Paul II warned – that may never end. And ancient Christian communities are being destroyed as a result.
The muslim goal is that there be no Christians at all in their “sacred” ummah. This nation has done much to help bring that about:
The American Catholic Charities guy isn’t very impressive, but I was edified to see all those Chaldean Catholic women in veils. Such a shame to know that all of that, in northern Iraq, at least, is gone.
I know there are relatively benign and even some good aspects to islam. I know there are millions of relatively good muslims. I guess. But I’m having an increasingly hard time not seeing it as a profoundly erroneous religion that seems predisposed to great evil.
And yet so many leaders in the Church slather completely unjustified attention and accolades on islam. They are almost sycophants at time – good little dhimmis.

I assume all readers are already aware that poor Malaysian Airlines, already afflicted with losing a 777 in some of the most mysterious circumstances ever, lost another $300 million dollar aircraft and, much more importantly, hundreds of lives when their 777-200ER was apparently shot down over eastern Ukraine by Russia or Russian-armed separatists. The missile system used was likely a 9K37 (SA-11/SA-17) Buk radar guided mobile battlefield SAM system. This is an upgraded version of the SA-6 Gainful missile system that has been used around the world in numerous conflicts, especially earning a nasty reputation as a very capable system in the 1973 Yom Kippur War. The SA-11 is eminently capable of engaging aircraft at medium altitudes (10-40k ft) and carries a 150 lb fragmentation warhead – more than enough to bring down a large airliner.
It appears to have been a monumental tragedy, the Russian-armed and Russian-speaking separatists of eastern Ukraine – or Russian forces themselves operating in support of those separatists – likely mistakenly targeted the 777, thinking it was an An-26 Curl cargo aircraft. Whoever fired the shot, they were horribly trained, SAM systems with decently trained crews are almost always capable of distinguishing civilian airliners from military aircraft, especially in established airways. It is interesting to note, however, that many airlines had already made the decision to abandon the air route over eastern Ukraine due to the ongoing conflict, and all airspace in eastern Ukraine is now closed, at all altitudes, to civilian traffic. Malaysian Airlines was taking one heck of a risk flying only 1,00o feet above an airspace zone restricted for military operations.
Evidence of Russian involvement is mounting. It is not unequivocal at this point, but it seems likely. Separatist forces already obtained the black box and spirited it away to Moscow for “investigation.” Separatists were quoted early on as claiming proudly on the internet that they had shot down another Ukrainian transport, but when it came out that it was actually a civilian airliner those tweets and other communiques were quickly pulled. The State Security Service of the Ukraine is claiming they have intercepted communiques from separatist forces to Russian authorities and their own higher ups claiming responsibility for the attack. But there is some question on this, as apparently that Ukrainian Security apparatus has already tried to use doctored evidence to paint the separatists in a bad light. Nevertheless, here it is:
The report below gives some general info. The fact that the debris was spread over a large area (10 or more miles) indicates the aircraft broke up at altitude. There were some pretty good sized chunks left, which tends to happen when an aircraft breaks apart – those chunks that survive the breakup, which can be pretty large, tend to stay intact until the hit the ground, and if they don’t contain any fuel there won’t be any fire. This is not at all unusual. I already saw one person trying to say that if Flight 93 that crashed in Shanksville, PA on 09/11/01 left almost no debris, how could this crash have such large debris (in places – the main part of the crash, including the central fuselage, wing stubs, etc, everything was obliteratged)? Well, that’s why, it broke apart at high altitude after suffering devastating structural damage from the missile warhead, but then continued more or less intact, at much reduced speed (less than 300 mph, certainly) until impact.
There was apparently 1 American on board. Prayers for all those who died, and for their families.
No one is going to spin this up into a broader war, but it does make Russia look terrible.

Naturally, that’s where most of the minorities are.
The below just goes to show you can’t trust a pro-abort. People who kill for a living are unlikely to bat an eye over a “little” thing like lying to someone’s face. I say that because some time ago, I had a conversation with an area abortion mill worker who told me most of the mills would be closing when the state’s ambulatory surgery requirements went into effect. This individual told me directly that Planned Barrenhood would be closing their mill and leaving only their Fort Worth abattoir open. They also said almost every other mill would close, too.
Well, either that was just bold-faced lying or it plans have changed, but shrill Cecile Richards was in town recently to tell us how wonderful it is that PB will be open a new megamill in South Dallas soon (they will close their other mill on Greenville Ave):
Planned Parenthood will open a new abortion clinic in Dallas in August that meets the structural standards of
an ambulatory surgical center, as required by the state’s new law.
In September, all abortion clinics will have to meet the structural requirments — such as specific room and doorway sizes, air sterilization systems, backup generators, blood supplies and male and female locker rooms.
Including the new Dallas clinic, seven of the 21 abortion clinics operating in the state meet the requirements.
The Center for Reproductive Rights filed a lawsuit on behalf of several abortion providers in Texas challenging the structural requirements.
Planned Parenthood purchased and renovated an existing surgical center with donations from the Building our Futures Fund.
“Our board and some of our donors and supporters put together a campaign to meet the needs of our patients over the coming years,” said Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas spokeswoman Sarah Wheat. Aside from funding the new clinic, the donations will go towards patient assistance and renovating family planning clinics in North Texas.
All abortion procedures will be transferred to the new facility beginning in August.
Some of the other mills – Robinson’s, Routh Street – are incapable of meeting the new requirements in their present locations, which are little more than hovels. The pro-abort I spoke with indicated they would close, but Robinson has given no indication he plans to quit. Maybe he’ll move to Planned Barrenhood. This new facility will be large enough to have several killing rooms.
In other Banned Parenthood related news, Planned Parenthood in Colorado is being sued for failing to report the rape of a 13 year old girl and returning her to her abuser:
Planned Parenthood faces a legal challenge in Colorado after Cary Smith, of Federal Heights, discovered that clinic staff failed to inquire or report about suspected sexual abuse of her thirteen-year-old daughter after giving her an abortion……
…….Throughout the visit, four staff members spoke with and observed R.Z. and her step-father. All of them had opportunity to see that R.Z.’s birth date indicated she was only thirteen—well below the age of consent. Yet, none of them asked R.Z. about their relationship. None of them asked why their last names were different. None of them asked about potential sex abuse. And none of them reported anything to the state
After the abortion, R.Z. walked back out to the parking lot, got into her step-father’s car, and went back home. And the abuse continued…….[What an unmitigated nightmare. This child was abused by her step-father. I read somewhere that rates of abuse by step-fathers are much higher than those of biological fathers. Another wonderful result of no-fault divorce.]
……The first medical professionals who had seen R.Z.—the four Planned Parenthood staff members—must have known that her daughter was a potential victim of sexual abuse. These were professionals who had the information to do something. They had opportunity to ask R.Z. before her mother even knew.
And they had the responsibility to act—to report suspected child sex abuse—under Colorado law.
But these professionals did nothing. Worse, they performed a dangerous, legally-restricted procedure on a minor child, without informing her mother, and turned R.Z. back over to her rapist following the abortion.
At Planned Parenthood, they don’t want to know how old girls are. They don’t want to know how old their partners are. They do everything they can to remain deliberately ignorant so they can avoid the mandatory reporter laws. They do all they can, in essence, to allow the abuse to continue, even if they know it is rape.
And as former Kansas Attorney Phil Kline and the Live Action crew have found out, this attitude is systematic within Planned Parenthood.
Yet they remain one of the most sacred allies of the demonrat party. Catholics don’t need to know anything else to know that voting democrat is gravely immoral.
Someone posited to me that the bishops should make clear that voting democrat is an act that incurs automatic excommunication. I’m sure that would go over real well at the secret sessions of the USCCB! But it’s an interesting thought. I think it could be argued that the democrat party has become so thoroughly committed to advancing evil in the last few years that voting for a democrat candidate, even one that pretends to be pro-life, is tantamount to a rejection of the Faith and grounds for excommunication. What do you think?
Not that the Repubniks are any great shakes. They have their own massive problems, like loving usury and being far more “Christian” in word than in deed.

I expect we will see more of this. A deranged pro-abort attacked some peaceful pro-life protesters outside a public building in Columbus, OH. There have been some follow-up interviews with the attacker in which she makes plain she has absolutely no concept of what constitutes assault, battery, stages of fetal development, the First Amendment, etc. In short, she is a deluded and ignorant woman, who needs many prayers.
Video of the assault below, big language warning, this woman is the definition of unhinged (first f-bomb comes about 2 seconds in):
This woman has so drunk the pro-abort kool-aid. “Clump of cells at 12 weeks,” I’m sure that’s what they told her when she had her abortion(s). Here is what a baby at 12 weeks looks like:
Deceased 12 week old:
My God what a tragedy for a person to believe such demonic lies. In point of fact, a baby stops being a “clump of cells” after just a few days, but even then, it is still a person.
Given all the idiocy she spouts about racism – which seems hilarious, as she is lily white – and “white male privilege,” it’s pretty obvious this fast food worker (with possible advanced degrees in gender studies/queer theory) has drank deeply from the leftist hate-mongering trough.
This assault does raise an interesting question. Does the increasingly radical and militant rhetoric from the pro-abort camp, with constant talk of “war on women,” “if you don’t have a uterus you have no right to talk about it,” and the fear-mongering that the pro-abort left uses, help precipitate attacks like these? We have seen the pro-abort left and militant atheists grow more and more extreme in rhetoric and violent in action in the past few years. I have experienced this personally myself. I am not one to think that broad cultural memes excuse people’s actions at all, but perhaps the converse is true: that extremist baby- and man-hating rhetoric that feminists like this are steeped in causes some of them to act out their rage in more concrete ways.
Her name is Victoria Duran, btw. That makes it easier to pray for her conversion and healing.
A little education for Miss Duran (her father’s name? – what a slave of patriarchy!). Here is what a baby looks like at even 5 weeks:
Hands eyes heart brain……not a clump of cells. It is, in fact, obviously human.
Poor lost souls like this. Each one a tragedy, and there are hundreds of millions of them, worldwide.
This is what comes of the rejection of Christendom and hating God. Just demonic evil.

UPDATE: Fixed format problems. I am having more and more format problems when I copy text from some sites. It’s getting out of hand. I spend as much time fixing the format as I do writing the post!
Rorate has a very important post on the ludicrous behavior of the media – including the Catholic media – getting caught up in the uproar over the World Cup Final between Argentina and Germany. Since those two countries represent the homes of the two most recent popes, much of the media is trying to focus on a Benedict vs. Bergoglio final.
All this attention being paid to the World Cup is beyond silly, especially by Catholic media, when we consider the ongoing plight of the largely Catholic Christian communities of Iraq and Syria being absolutely decimated by repeated atrocities from the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria – the new “caliphate.” The Patriarch of the Chaldean Catholic Church had strong words of condemnation for the Western media, which has never given the coverage the ongoing plight of the Catholics of the Mideast deserves:
In an international competition of a popular sport, the final match will involve the teams of the countries of origin of the Pope and of the Pope Emeritus — and religious correspondents immediately begin the silly season of the “competition” between the popes, what the “mood” between them will be, where will they watch the match, etc.
This is extremely offensive, especially considering the strong words of the Chaldean Catholic Patriarch specifically about this point, a plea ignored by the Western media, as Christians are expelled, executed, and victimized by genocide all through Iraq and Syria. It was not a coincidence that Patriarch Sako (not us!), the main Catholic cleric in Mesopotamia, chose to put his attention specifically on this amazing contrast: he knows how ridiculous and embarrassing the Church looks before the Muslims who terrorize them when Christians in the West put more attention on games than on the martyrdom of their brothers and sisters:
…. most Christians have already been forced to flee Syria and Iraq, where the head of the Chaldean-Catholic Church, Patriarch Louis Raphael I Sako, fears Christian life will eventually come to an end in the region.
“In ten years there will perhaps be 50,000 Christians left” in Iraq, he said in a statement released by Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need and obtained by BosNewsLife. “Prior to 2003, this figure was about 1.2 million. Within ten years we have shrunk to a community of perhaps four to five hundred thousand faithful,” he added. [I recently did a post on the ongoing sufferings and struggles of the Chaldean Catholics in Iraq. We have to note that the United States bears direct responsibility for unleashing the forces that have led to the destruction of ancient Catholic churches and other Christian communities throughout the Mideast. From the inept Iraq war to Obama's speech in Cairo undermining the status quo in Egypt, the US has played a direct role in bringing about the destruction of Christianity in its ancient home. The effect has been so severe, so drastic, one must wonder if it was not at least somewhat intentional.]
Sako fears Iraq will soon fall apart. “At present there are three fragments of Iraq, a Sunni one, a Kurdish one and a Shiite one. The Kurds already enjoy autonomy anyway. The Shiites do as well in a sense. Now the Sunnis are following suit. Iraq will therefore be divided up.” [I would say Iraq has already fallen apart. The best hope for the Christians, who are too spread out and too few in numbers to form a cohesive, defensible country of their own, is to hope they can fall under the Kurdish area of suzerainty. The Kurds seem to be the least hostile towards Christians]
The bishop condemned Western states who he said “find football” in the current World Cup “more interesting than the situation here or in Syria
He said Western policy only pursues economic interests. “The international community should put pressure on Iraqi politicians to make them find a political solution and form a government of national unity.” [I'm afraid it was too late for that 10 years ago. Iraq, a fake nation created by French and English bureaucrats during WWI, is doomed.]
Sako views the Sunni oriented ISIL as a global security threat. The group, he added, “intends to found an Islamic state with oil wells in order to Islamize the world. I think this is a danger for all.”
There is more at Rorate, including a statement by the Primate of France Cardinal Barbarin decrying the lack of concern by Western governments for the plight of Christians in the Mideast.
But here is my question, related to the ongoing immigration disaster afflicting the United States. Where are the US bishops? Where is the USCCB? Instead of pandering constantly for totally unconstrained Hispanic immigrations, from regions far more economically stable and enduring far less severe conflict than the Mideast, why are not the US bishops calling on the US government to take ownership of what it’s broken (remember the line from Colin Powell), and allow all persecuted Christians in Syria and Iraq to immigrate to the United States or other Western countries? Why do Western politicians and so many Catholic bishops fall all over themselves pretending islamic immigration to Europe and North America is a blessed thing, while ignoring the dire needs of Christians from the same region to immigrate, as well?!? They have even more cause to flee their homes than do most of the muslim immigrants?!? Must false views of interreligious relations trump all?
RELATED: Holding nothing sacred, even their own religious heritage (because, or so we have been taught, muslims revere many figures of the Old Testament and hold Jesus as the greatest prophet shy of their false Mohammad), the new caliphate destroyed the tomb of the Prophet Jonah yesterday.
And yet this is the great “religion of peace,” from which even the current pope has given no indication one must convert to be saved. In fact, he has conveyed quite the opposite

The Archdiocese of Minneapolis is one of the most thoroughgoing progressive dioceses in the country. For several years, the not nearly so progressive Archbishop John C. Nienstedt has been ordinary there. He has earned numerous enemies for his strong (compared to many other bishops) defense of marriage, his attempts to curtail the influence of the numerous “homosexual” priests and religious in the archdiocese, and generally taking a firmer stand with regard to many moral issues than the progressive katholyc denizens of that locale would prefer.
He’s had a huge target on his back. Late last year, some patently false allegations were posited about feeling up a nine year old boy in a group photo taken after the boy’s First Communion. At the time, I said: “this reeks of a set up. Even someone totally lost in sin would have to be pretty stupid or pretty high to try to grope a kid at a public event like is being claimed here. It seems most likely to me that this is, at best, someone making a radically abusive interpretation of an accidental movement, or at worst an open play to crush another conservative-ish bishop. As happened with Bishop Finn in Kansas City.”
Several months ago, Nienstedt was cleared on this First Communion allegation. But that has not stopped his enemies from attempting to drive this most inconvenient prelate from their midst. There are now supposedly more allegations, which have been made as part of an ongoing investigation of how Nienstedt and the Archdiocese dealt with some alleged and convicted boy-abusing priests. The former top canon lawyer of the Archdiocese has added her voice to the fray, claiming she resigned in April 2013 because Nienstedt was not doing enough to drive the priests from ministry. But she has a serious note of sour grapes surrounding not just her concerns over handling abuse, but also the Archbishop’s strong stand on moral matters and how he dealt with various personalities (including, one would assume, her own).
I’ll excerpt the article below just to provide some background on some of the key figures involved (there are also others not quoted below, who are playing a big role in this mess and who are long time enemies of Archbishop Nienstedt. I will say unequivocally that there is a cabal in Minneapolis that is dedicated to destroying him at all costs) and to show how much of the secular and progressive katholyc media is spinning this story, pushing the bounds of libel in strongly implying Nienstedt guilty of something, anything, that will rid them of this meddlesom prelate:
ARTICLE STARTS BELOW. Format fixed. Whatever format that dumb “mintnews” site uses is the most toxic I’ve ever come across.
[First, I want to lambast the title of this article: "Anti-Gay Archbishop Investigated for Sexual Misconduct with Men" "Anti-Gay......" so many lies in those 8 characters!]
Nienstedt has denied the allegations, saying they are “a personal attack against me due to my unwavering stance on issues consistent with church teaching, such as opposition to so-called same-sex marriage.” [Look, I am not someone who doubts there are many sodomite priests and bishops. I know there are many. The above is only part of Nienstedt's denial. He is vociferous in proclaiming his innocence. That, and some other factors, lead me to strongly doubt these latest allegations. I think everything possible is being thrown at him in order to destroy - in total or in effect - his effectiveness as a bishop. But I find so much of this dubious. There are probably at least 80-100 bishops about whom such allegations could be made, whose evidence of sodomy is way out in the open, who are almost proud of their role in flaunting the moral law (I'm looking at you Tampa Bay Bishop Lynch). This guy is only being attacked because he is relatively orthodox. There is also the matter that the news coverage last week when this broke appeared highly coordinated - dozens of articles appearing within minutes containing virtually verbatim coverage. This smells like an Alinskyite frame job, and there are many Alinskyites in Minneapolis] He couldn’t fully explain some of the allegations, but he claims that in at least one instance, the accusations of improper touching concerned a person’s neck — not genitals….
…..Given that priests have historically stepped down while they were being investigated, [no, some have, some haven't] some priests such as the Rev. Mike Tegeder, [an extreme leftist, heretic, pro-sodomite and inveterate enemy of +Nienstedt and the entire Church] pastor of the St. Frances Cabrini Church in Minneapolis, has questioned why Nienstedt has not been asked to step down or opted to do so, like he did during the first investigation. [Who would ask him, Pope Francis? To who else is he accountable?]
“People are just tired and discouraged,’’ Tegeder said. “If he would step down, it would be the most healing thing he could do.’’ [No, it would rid you of an ordinary you despise. Every interview I have seen on this matter, of priests and others in Minneapolis, has always, in every case, been a progressive enemy of Nienstedt. That also points at a political attack job. Maybe the people are tired and discouraged because they have lousy, leftist priests?]
[Get this abysmal closing paragraph:] The number [of sodomite priests] was reportedly higher among younger priests, [oh, I believe its incredibly high among priests ordained from ~1980-2000, because that was all the sodomite cabal in charge of almost every seminary, especially in leftist locales like Minneapolis, would ALLOW to be ordained! So, it that's what you mean by "young," OK] possibly because Pope Francis has been much more welcoming to gay people, saying that “if someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge” — a departure from Pope Benedict XVI’s order that men with strong gay tendencies not become priests. [Wow, that Pope Francis, he never ceases working wonders! Even though seminary generally takes 7 years, already there are scads of young sodomite priests as a result of his 16 month pontificate! Amazing!]
Rucke – Catholic hater?
I asked the author, KATIE RUCKE, with regard to the title of her article, why she was such a raging anti-Catholic bigot?
I do that because I think it time we push back against the blithe cultural assertion of many progressives that to believe what essentially everyone believed 10-15 years ago is now to be “anti-gay.”
Archbishop Nienstedt may be guilty, but I doubt it. I don’t think Bishop Finn was really guilty, either. I am 99.5% certain that these allegations are nothing more than an attempt to destroy a bishop that greatly annoys the Minnesota left. I do not get the sense that Nienstedt is a sodomite.
And this is just one small forewarning of how the sodomite lobby will behave towards its enemies when its ascendancy is complete.
In any case, he needs many prayers. As do his enemies, whose conversion is vital.
So do we all, for when the persecution really gets started.
I decided to cover this, because I have seen virtually no coverage among orthodox/faithful Catholic blogs – that I read, anyway.

So proclaimed a major academic conference held recently in Britain. Sodomy is just the beginning, folks, the ultimate goal is your children:
“Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” said the presentation. “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”
Some yellowing tract from the Seventies or early Eighties, era of abusive celebrities and the infamous PIE, the Paedophile Information Exchange? No. Anonymous commenters on some underground website? No again.
The statement that paedophilia is “natural and normal” was made not three decades ago but last July. It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge.
Other presentations included “Liberating the paedophile: a discursive analysis,” and “Danger and difference: the stakes of hebephilia.”
Hebephilia is the sexual preference for children in early puberty, typically 11 to 14-year-olds.
Another attendee, and enthusiastic participant from the floor, was one Tom O’Carroll, a multiple child sex offender, long-time campaigner for the legalisation of sex with children and former head of the Paedophile Information Exchange. “Wonderful!” he wrote on his blog afterwards. “It was a rare few days when I could feel relatively popular!”…….. [Lord sometimes it is so hard to be merciful when some people do such evil things. How a man with a repeated history of child sex abuse can be allowed to campaign for its legalization is beyond me.]
…..After a fierce battle in the American Psychiatric Association (APA), which produces it, a proposal to include hebephilia as a disorder in the new edition of the manual has been defeated. The proposal arose because puberty in children has started ever earlier in recent decades and as a result, it was argued, the current definition of paedophilia – pre-pubertal sexual attraction – missed out too many young people. [Sounds rather eerily like the start of the sodomite movement, with de-listing same sex attraction from the APA's DSM in the early 70s. That's when the movement got started in earnest. Now, 40 years later, they appear totally ascendant. I pray that appearance is short lived. But what of pedophilia? Will pedophilia be "normalized" in 30 or 40 years? You know people will try]
Ray Blanchard, professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto, who led the APA’s working group on the subject, said that unless some other way was found of encompassing hebephilia in the new manual, that was “tantamount to stating that the APA’s official position is that the sexual preference for early pubertal children is normal”. [And that is very far from accidental]
Prof Blanchard was in turn criticised by a speaker at the Cambridge conference, Patrick Singy, of Union College, New York, who said hebephilia would be abused as a diagnosis to detain sex offenders as “mentally ill” under US “sexually violent predator” laws even after they had completed their sentences.[Thus we can plainly see the angle of attack for the normalization movement. If pedophilia is not a mental illness, it must be "normal." And from normal, it will become "natural." And how can we make something so normal, natural, and wholesome as raping a 5 year old illegal? What are we, monsters?!? Just because some antiquated religious diktat of some unhinged tribe of the distant past says pedophilia (or sodomy) is wrong, we can't let such arcane notions inform our thinking today! And that is precisely how the
"normalization" of sodomy has been worked out in recent years.]
This is coming. You can be assured that it is. I can only thank God my children will probably be grown before the propaganda campaign succeeds and this next great immoral taboo is lifted in the name of
the advancing God-hating socialist paradigm progress. But I fear already for any grandchildren God may see fit to bless me with.
Another reason for all my kids to have religious/priestly vocations!

Black masses have been around for centuries. Fallen man always strives to find new ways to hate his Creator, Lord, and Savior. We’re sick. But we haven’t seen such open promotion of what has always been a horribly offensive act until now. There was the possible black mass in Cambridge, Mass, a few months ago, and now another. This time, apparently, in Oklahoma City, of all places:
A ticketed “Black Mass” is slated to occur Sept. 21 at the Oklahoma City Civic Center, according to the Civic Center website.
Today, Archbishop Paul Coakley expressed his astonishment and disappointment at this event and called on community leaders to reconsider whether it is an appropriate use of public space.
“For more than 1 billion Catholics worldwide and more than 200,000 Catholics in Oklahoma, the Mass is the most sacred of religious rituals,” the archbishop said. “It is the center of Catholic worship and celebrates Jesus Christ’s redemption of the world by his death and resurrection. In particular, the Eucharist – which we believe to be the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ – is the source and summit of our faith. [sic......I'd prefer Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ - the Source and Summit. The Church did actually put down several major heresies that tried to reduce or eliminate Christ's Divinity, a tendency we see rampant today. Don't get me wrong, it's wonderful to see a bishop use these terms, and this is a quibbling thing, but hey, I'm a quibbler.]
“That’s why we’re astonished and grieved that the Civic Center would promote as entertainment and sell tickets for an event that is very transparently a blasphemous mockery of the Mass,” he continued. “The ‘Black Mass’ that is scheduled for the Civic Center in September is a satanic inversion and distortion of the most sacred beliefs not only of Catholics, but of all Christians. [It's just about the most blasphemous thing imaginable]
“In a spirit of hope, I ask those who are allowing this event to reconsider whether this is an appropriate use of public space. We trust that community leaders – and, in particular, the board members of the Oklahoma City Civic Center – do not actually wish to enable or encourage such a flagrantly inflammatory event and can surely remedy this situation.
“If the event does move forward, we will have to consider other peaceful, prayerful and respectful options to demonstrate our opposition to this publicly supported sacrilegious act. [Rioting seems to work well for the muslims.]
“In the meantime, I call on all Catholics in central and western Oklahoma – as well as all men and women of good will – to pray for a renewed sense of the sacred and, in particular, to pray that the Lord might change the hearts and minds of the organizers of this event.”
What I mean by post-Christian is this: there is no way satanists could have rented a public facility to host such an event 60 or 100 years ago. It would not have been tolerated. The civil authorities would not have dared, and most of them were Christian/Catholic themselves. The few satanists that existed then had to literally skulk around in the dark to perform their perverse acts of God-hatred.
We’re not talking about Boston. This is Oklahoma City. Oklahoma is one of the most consistently, profoundly conservative states in the nation. That such would occur there – that civil authorities would see no problem with hosting such a barbaric, blasphemous act (and again, do they have any real idea of what a true black mass really entails? Do they want a ritual rape of a baptized virgin taking place at their civic center?) – is simply staggering.
Crazy can obviously occur anywhere. This group that wants a black mass has petitioned to have a statue of satan installed at the Oklahoma capitol in response to the Ten Commandments displayed there. The organizer and leader of this satanist group is a registered sex offender. It is beyond nuts that this travesty was approved. It shows at the very least a huge callousness towards the Faith, if not a growing, open hostility towards it.

My wife sent me a link to a blog dedicated to help transform confused young people into fully fledged afficianados of the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah. I will not link to the blog, I don’t want a trackback and I don’t want give this site any more pub than it already gets. I will simply note some of the books, which are obviously oriented towards indoctrination and normalization. All the books are short on truth and heavy on emotion, the prime calling cards of the propagandist. Let’s take a look:
Hoo boy……that’s a disquieting scene. Some of the recommended books, like the ones above and below, are oriented towards reassuring children in these incredibly disordered environments that their situation is quite normal, as well as propagandizing the vast majority of children not in these environments that these abnormal situations are, in fact, very normal and fully equivalent to having married parents.
Do you think these books mention the highly volatile nature of the vast majority of these types of relationships? Do the books on two daddies mention the disgusting aftermath of the routine orgies many (if not most) even allegedly “committed” all-male couples engage in, which would pose a grave threat to a child’s health? Do they mention how children naturally need and crave both a father and a mother, and that two “mommies” (or “daddies”) is far, far from an equivalent situation? Do they tell you of the pain children in these situations experience as a result? No, they just tell you how normal they are, over and over again, and if you don’t get the point, Christofascist, they’ll have the state come and tell you for them.
The books for small children are bad enough. Far more insidious are the books oriented towards older children (generally, described as being for “13 and up”), which not only encourage and extol this unnatural lifestyle, they actively teach children how to hide their budding confusion and gross immorality from concerned parents, especially parents of a religious bent. These books are thus highly antagonistic and subversive of the family and traditional religion. From the description of just one such book:
Cameron Post is both guilty and relieved when her parents die in a car accident: [!! Are you kidding me!] she’s relieved she doesn’t have to reveal her dawning awareness of her homosexuality to them, [how narcissistic do you have to be to feel primarily HAPPY your parents died so you can pursue your lusts?] but can’t help but feel that her forbidden desires might have caused the accident. Now living with her highly conservative aunt, Cameron manages to keep her growing understanding of her real feelings concealed — until she and another girl from the same fundamentalist church fall in love. When their relationship is discovered, Cameron’s aunt sends her to God’s Promise, a religious camp that claims to “cure” gay people….
You can guess how it goes from there. Every single one of the books listed, including some covering truly disturbing topics like alleged gender dysphoria in youth (often a product of growing up in just such an incredibly disordered and sinful environment as that described as “normal” in these books), stresses keeping tendencies towards immoral sexual desires and activities hidden from parents and family UNTIL the desires have been repeatedly acted on and deeply embedded in these damaged psyches. That is to say, don’t tell mom and dad until the process is well nigh irreversible. Does that sound like books that are really concerned with the well-being of children, or books seeking to groom perversion?
I was speaking with a priest last night, and he discussed the phenomenon of the “reprobate sense.” This is a condition souls fall into when they have sinned grossly and repeatedly, often in knowledge that their activity is wrong and offensive to God. A classic example is Pharaoh in the story of Exodus, who in spite of enormous warnings from God had such a hard heart no miracle could convince him of right and justice in letting the Israelites go. The denizens of Sodom and Gomorrah are another example of the reprobate sense en masse. It is a terrible spiritual affliction which afflicts those deeply lost in sin, depriving them of even the knowledge of right and wrong and often making them virulent proponents of evil as good, and vice versa.
As Sodom and Gomorrah show, entire societies can be afflicted with a reprobate sense, and that is exactly what is occurring in our own society at present. When sin becomes massive and culturally ingrained (and approved), an entire culture can literally turn against God and even lose understanding of the natural law (Grace is always there, but millions of souls in this environment have so deliberately and purposefully blocked the work of Grace in their souls for so long, it takes a moral miracle for them to be touched). That is the reprobate sense writ large, and the mere existence of hundreds books like the ones described above demonstrate that our society, our nation, has developed a very hardened, almost impervious, reprobate sense.
It is also from reprobate senses, like those that afflicted ancient Rome, that persecutions come. So, we have that to look forward to.
Other books in the list, for ages as young as 1, are meant to indoctrinate unafflicted children into acceptance and glorification of the sodom-sapphos lifestyle.
All of this is incredibly inappropriate and disordered. These books read like how-to manuals to either fall into, or be indoctrinated to accept, this unnatural and undeniably sinful lifestyle.
Exposing young children, who, absent abuse physical or otherwise would essentially never harbor such unnatural desires, to materials like this is ordered only to awakening faculties that in most cases would not begin to materialize until near adulthood. Young children are unable to appropriately deal with material like this (plus the desires they can awaken), and early exposure to even the more “innocuous” forms of this propaganda will have repercussions that are impossible to predict, save that none of them will be good. These books can and will have a disastrous impact on the lives of many innocent young souls. I cannot help but believe these books are really about indoctrinating children in extreme sexualization at a very young age.
As I said above grooming. That’s what all this is really about.
Lord, have mercy on us.

Because they’re all about
hating men with a white hot passion, perverted lusts, and mammoth daddy issues tolerance and understanding.
Content warning below. Not for kids, or for sensitive souls. Sorry to include this, but I think it necessary.
What started out as a joke on a gamer site has been taken up by radical feminists totally lacking in humor, reason, understanding, or decency. A Twitter “hashtag” claiming Father’s Day should be abolished because of teh Patriarchy!11! has become a thing among radical feminists, showing yet again where their true ambitions lie: a lesbo-female ordered society in which they are the queen bees. With the radical left, it’s always about power, and everything else is just window dressing:
Because I routinely check the #fem2 and #radfem hashtags, I noticed the#EndFathersDay hashtag early this morning and also noticed that some people called it a hoax by the gamer/hacker types at 4chan. But the hashtag was adopted by some actual feminists, who see it as a logical extension of the #YesAllWomen campaign — i.e., universal collective female victimhood, with all men as violent patriarchal oppressors — which therefore demonstrates how it is impossible to parody radical feminism.
Adrienne Rich, Mary Daly, Dee Graham — feminists have spent decades following the radical logic of their anti-male ideology to its obvious lesbian conclusion. The amazing thing is that in 2014 there are still heterosexual women who dare to call themselves “feminists.”
Because of the hegemonic influence of feminism among the intelligentsia, however, few college-educated women are willing to speak out against feminism, per se, so that many women who live non-feminist lives nevertheless think of themselves as “feminists,” but are shocked when they encounter actual feminist ideology. This was why so many people were astonished by Radical Wind’s declaration, “PIV is always rape, OK?” — a belief entirely consistent with radical feminism’s anti-male, anti-heterosexual doctrine,taught in Women’s Studies course everywhere, but usually concealed from the general public.
The logic that PIV (penis-in-vagina, i.e., heterosexual intercourse) is “always rape” derives from feminism’s Marxist origins, wherein women as a “sex caste” are collectively exploited and oppressed by men. (Friedrich Engels himself was the first to assert this in The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State.) The Women’s Liberation movement of the 1960s and ’70s (so-called “Second Wave” feminism) began among women allied to SDS and the anti-war movement, many of whom were “Red Diaper babies” and, having grown up within the Communist millieu, eagerly applied Marxist-Leninist doctrine to women’s second-class status within the male-dominated New Left. Any bibliography of classic Women’s Liberation literature must includeradical lesbian authors who understood that rejecting “male supremacy” required a rejection of heterosexuality.
And as RS McCain has persuasively argued, radical feminism ends in lesbianism. The radical feminists themselves admit this within their own milieu, but a compliant, 5th column media and careful message control have kept most people unaware of this fact.
Here are some snapshots of some of their misanthropic tweets:
Note: I edited the screed below to remove some foul content:
The hatred and psychopathy is evident, no? I think that bottom statement may well win an award for the most racists statement of the year. Nice spelling and grammar, too. Something tells me Miss Herzog (her father’s name?) just got dumped by her hook-up buddy.
But I do find it darkly amusing how utterly pathetic and ineffectual these little twittertantrums are. Really, do you think your #NoMoreWhiteMen is going to effect anything other than giving you and the few sad, twisted souls like you that little sick thrill you crave?
It is amazing to me how eerily the modern left imitates the ideology, structure, means, and goals of the ruling totalitarian collectivist oligarchy described by Orwell in 1984. And yet the left has managed to somehow convince most people that Orwell feared a tyranny from the right, when it is plain as day from the book and from Orwell’s own beliefs that he feared much more an omnipresent, suffocating dictatorship from the left.
But today’s left seems fully on board with executing that type of government if they ever get the means to do so. What is being argued above is essentially genocide against men in general and white men in particular. And end to fatherhood, from which every single one of those men-hating women came. That must gall them to no end, the fact that God ordered reproduction to involve both a man and a woman, and all the nightmare Frankenstein medical “advances” like in vitro still cannot alter that fact, and never will be able to. You’re half man, ladies, deal with it.
It just confirms yet again that there is no bottom to the evil (and insanity) to which souls can sink when they reject God. Speaking of which, God-hatred informs and evokes all of the above.
