The farce of it all: Kalifornia uber alles orders churches to fund abortions – or else October 23, 2014

Well, surprise, surprise, surprise……as part of its enforcement of Obamacare, the state of Kalifornia has determined that surgical abortion now constitutes “basic health services” and must be covered by ALL insurance plans, whether the holders of those plans are churches with moral objections to the murder of babies or not.  Everyone with a brain knew Obamacare would wind up instituting universal coverage for grave moral evils like contraception and abortion even on churches, even on the Church.  Kalifornia has simply jumped the gun a bit. Whether this will hold up in court, it all depends on what the magic 8 ball of Anthony Kennedy says on that particular day:

For the past four years, the Obama administration and its friends on the Left were careful to claim that they still strongly support religious libertywhile arguing that Hobby Lobby’s Green family, Conestoga Wood Specialties’ Hahn family, and others like them must lose. Principally, they contended, religious liberty protections could not be applied to Hobby Lobby because (1) It is a for-profit corporation, (2) It isn’t a church (and thus not a true “religious employer”), and (3) It is wrong on the science—Plan B, a copper intrauterine device, et cetera, they claimed, do not cause abortions. [WRONG.] They implied, if not claimed outright, that they would surely support religious freedom in another case, but Hobby Lobby was unworthy to claim its protections. [Horse hockey]

The State of California is now calling their bluff. California’s Department of Managed Health Care has ordered all insurance plans in the state to immediately begin covering elective abortion. Not Plan B. Not contraceptives. Elective surgical dismemberment abortion. 

At the insistence of the American Civil Liberties Union, [a long time communist front group, founded by a communist] the DMHC concluded that a 40-year-old state law requiring health plans to cover “basic health services” had been misinterpreted all these decades. Every plan in the state was immediately ordered, effective August 22, to cover elective abortion. California had not even applied this test to its own state employee health plans (which covered only “medically necessary” abortions). But this novel reading was nevertheless quietly imposed on every plan in the state by fiat.……..[Ah, the leftist's favorite word.......fiat]

…..Several other California churches have received similar notices from their insurers, and others will follow. While California (like the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, or HHS) exempts churches from its contraceptive mandate, there is no exception to this bureaucratic abortion mandate. This leaves California churches in the illogical and impossible position of being free to exclude contraceptives from their health plan for reasons of religious conscience but required to provide their employees with abortion coverage. [And even more illogically, chemical abortions are excluded, but not surgical ones!  They must really feel a need to ramp up the offerings to satan there in the Kalifornia state government.]

This California mandate is in blatant violation of federal law that specifically prohibits California from discriminating against health care plans on the basis that they do not cover abortion.[So there had to be a law enacted specifically to keep Kalifornia from persecuting churches?  Do they pick on mosques in the same way?]  Alliance Defending Freedom and Life Legal Defense Foundation have filed administrative complaints with the HHS Office of Civil Rights (which oversees this federal law) on behalf of individual employees and seven California churches forced into abortion coverage in violation of their conscience.

What will be the administration and the Left’s response to this unprecedented attack on religious liberty? If they couldn’t stand with Hobby Lobby because it was a for-profit business, not a church, and because they thought its conscience concern was misplaced on the abortifacient nature of Plan B, will they now demand religious liberty for churches forced to cover elective abortion? If not now for religious liberty, when?

Oh please, never.  They don’t give a squat for “religious liberty,” “freedom of worship,” or any  of it.  To the militant sexular pagan left, religion is  for bitter clingers who just can’t get with the program in modern society without a crutch.  Even over just the past few years, the left’s open hatred for bible-@#$%ing Christofascist God botherers [their terms] has grown more and more open. They’ll say what is politically convenient at a particular time, but when push comes to shove, when it’s time to ratchet up the persecution another notch, all on the left will eagerly support the new measure, while the right will just mewl a bit and say how unfair it all is.

Guess what, the left doesn’t care about fair, or truth, or being exposed as hypocrites, or being shown to have massive double-standards, or anything else.  All the left cares about is naked power, and gradually assuming more and more of it.  To the extent any organization poses even a possible threat to that power, it will be crushed.  This is why the left, whenever it has seized unequivocal control in any nation, has always made persecution of organized religion one of its first moves. From France in 1789 to the Piedmont in 1848 to all of Italy in 1870 to Russia in 1917 to Eastern Europe in 46-48 to Chile in ’73 to Nicaragua in ’79, the left has always either co-opted the Church when possible (Nicaragua, largely) or tried to crush it out of existence.

The left is a product of endarkenment rationalism which itself was founded on (often well hidden) hatred of Christianity and the Church in particular.  Reading pre-conciliar Church histories, biographies of Saints and popes, and the like, makes clear the extent to which the pre-conciliar Church understood the radical political left to be its deadly enemy.  Reality hasn’t changed since then, what has changed is the attitude of most in the Church, who have decided its easier to be co-opted than to fight.  But make no mistake, the left will only allow a completely pliant, indifferent, ineffective, and pointless shell of a Church – otherwise, the left is always the inveterate enemy of the Church, with the greater the leftness, the greater the hatred.

 

Kasper continues to lie, and threatens retaliation towards Cardinal Burke October 21, 2014

He’s just a peach of a man.  And this is the one who does “serene theology” and is the most influential theologian for this pontificate?

But when you’re the big man’s boy, the “designated success,” you can get away with anything.  Anyone who follows the news knows that the self-anointed elites are above the rules they create for the rest of us, and I’m certain Kasper the Klown Kardinal (KKK for short) counts himself in that camp.

First, KKK made the amazing statement to the unquestioning, fawning German Catholic mainstream media that he didn’t even speak at the Synod. It took about 5 seconds for that lie to be exposed:

This Monday, Franca Giansoldati in Il Messaggero reported Kasper’s words on the outcome of the Synod: among other things, he said the following:

“I am not disappointed. There was just a discussion, and now the issue will be deepened. I did not speak at the Synod, I did not want to push my positions. It will be seen, I am calm.”

Why did he say that? Because the atmosphere in Rome is so heavy for him after the defeat of the manipulation strategy of which he was the centerpiece during the historic debates of October 16, as well as due to his anti-African words and his lying about it, that he wanted to appear “above the fray,” and save his doomed position safely for the 2015 assembly.
Well, that did not last for long. Shortly after this declaration became public, Matteo Matzuzzi, religious correspondent for Il Foglio,tweeted back:

“Card. Kasper: ‘I did not speak at the Synod’. But the official records of the Press Office show that he spoke on October 8, in the afternoon.

Could it be that lying is the entire foundation of his theology? No wonder, as Roberto de Mattei proved, his entire thesis on “communion for remarried divorcees” is based on an immensely and embarrassingly deceptive presentation of historical evidence. Is it possible that this is just the way his mind works always? If so, it does not appear that more “Church Tax Money” is the right answer.

Lie and threaten, lie and threaten, with the occasional disdainful remark: it seems to be his modus operandi. Does this merit a theological award or perhaps, rather, another kind of more thorough evaluation?

Even if he had not spoken, what of it?  It is his proposal that drove the discussion, it was his minions in the German episcopate that made the favorable interventions (primarily)……so even this false claim is preposterous and dumb on its face.

But that’s not all KKK’s been up to.  He’s evidently hopping mad at Cardinal Burke for having the temerity to question his most exalted and serene authority:

Another comment made by Cardinal Kasper in speaking with Kath.net is quite breathtaking: he talked again about a “deliberate dirty trick” to denounce him.  [Oh, now speaking one's mind in defense of the Faith is a "deliberate dirty trick!"  Just how exalted an opinion does KKK have of himself?] “The fact that Catholic media (and unfortunately a cardinal in person) should participate in it, in order to tear down another position morally, is shameful,” Kasper opined.[Hello?  Pot, kettle?  The claim is outrageous anyway.  He hasn't hesitated to tear down his opposition.  He just doesn't like return fire]When Kath.net asked as a follow-up question who that cardinal was, Kasper unfortunately gave no answer. The retired Curial Cardinal announced, however, that “other journalists” are going to take action against such “undignified machinations”

So now it’s with threats!  How is that for “undignified machinations?”  KKK, you are a prince among men, I tell you what!  A one man demonstration of all that is wrong with the Church.  Please keep talking!  Please please please don’t shut your mouth!  A few more months of this and you will have so discredited yourself and your position that no one with a conscience will be able to approach within 15 feet of you.

But, then again, I would take that threat pretty seriously.  This is pretty conclusive evidence that much of the “mainstream Catholic” media is deeply in bed with the modernists – as if we needed confirmation of that!  It does further indicate the bankruptcy of the modernist’s position and their own incredible immorality, at least as evidenced by their own chosen leader.  Once again, sort of restating the obvious, but there is some benefit when the wolf in sheep’s clothing shows his teeth.

What a scandalous little man.  Incredible.

 

That didn’t take long – Idaho preachers threatened with jail if they don’t perform sodo-weddings October 20, 2014

A federal court just last week overturned Idaho’s law defining marriage as it has always been understood (can we even comprehend anymore how INSANE it is that such laws were even necessary, but not only that, are now being overturned by judicial fiat!?!).  We denizens of the 5th Circuit Court are now, I believe, the only part of the nation that have not had sodo-marriage foisted on them, yet.  But it’s only a matter of time.

OK, so a judge contradicts probably the teachings of his own “faith” and 10,000 years of human civilization and decides that Idaho must allow sodomites and lesbians to pretend marry, and then recognize that pretension as actual marriage.  But we’ve always been assured that our “religious freedom” enshrined in the 1st Amendment would mean that Christian churches would have an out.

Ha!  That’s so yesterday, bible-humper!  Get with the program!  They will force themselves on the churches, just wait and see:

City officials in Coeur d’Alene Idaho have told a married couple who are both ordained ministers that they will go to jail if they refuse to perform wedding ceremonies for gay couples.

The Alliance for Defending Freedom has filed suit against the city and asked for a temporary restraining order to prevent officials from carrying out their threat…..

……City officials told Donald Knapp that he and his wife Evelyn, both ordained ministers who run Hitching Post Wedding Chapel, are required to perform such ceremonies or face months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines. The city claims its “non-discrimination” ordinance requires the Knapps to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies now that the courts have overridden Idaho’s voter-approved constitutional amendment that affirmed marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

The couple would face 180 days in jail and up to $1000 in fines per day if they dared to adhere to their religious beliefs………

….This is a law that manifestly violates the Constitution so I wouldn’t expect any court in America to uphold the city statutue.

Oh please!  20 years ago not a judge in the country would have found a law defining marriage as between one man and one woman UNconstitutional, so don’t tell us how much protection that piece of paper gives us now!  It gives none!  It fact, it is often used as a pacifier to lull us to sleep, believing the Constitution really will protect religious believers, the family, etc, etc, until one day, like magic, it doesn’t.  That’s another damnable aspect of this so-called representative democracy.

According to the state of Idaho, if a person or church marries anyone, it must “marry” these people who define themselves according to their perversion.  How long will the Church herself be able to refuse?

This ludicrous redefinition of marriage will be the law of the land in all 50 states within 6 months.  Then what?  It won’t be five minutes before the Catholic Church is sued for refusing/failing to “marry” these poor lost souls.  And how many parishes/dioceses will cave without a fight?

I know a large number of nominal conservative Christians who think this issue is no big deal.  They think it doesn’t really affect them, so they don’t really care.  Well, guess what?  They will be made to care?  This sodo-lobby will not stop until they receive unending adulation from everyone, or at the very least have the obvious ability to bend whomever they desire to their will.  Resistance will be crushed. Disagreement will not be tolerated.

Thus, the vehicle of the persecution.  With how many agents already not just in the Church, but serving as Her priests and prelates?

Completely predictable – Houston’s lesbian mayor and left wing bureaucrats attempt to censor Christian’s speech October 15, 2014

I have long believed, along with others like Father Michael Rodriguez, that this sodomization of the culture would be the vehicle for persecution of Christians.  There is already ample evidence of this in other nations where the false “right” of those lost in sins of the gravest perversion to not feel badly about themselves trumps any kind of “religious freedom” supposedly enlightened liberal states allow.  In Canada several years ago, the now largely disbanded “human rights commissions” persecuted several Christian pastors for having the temerity to repeat the constant Gospel Truth regarding the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah, including jailing one and directing that he could not broach the topic of sodomy even in the privacy of his own home.

Houston, quite incredibly, elected one of the nation’s first lesbian mayors of a major city and a very left wing city council.  That council, earlier this year, passed one of the most draconian, repressive, and immoral “non-discrimination” ordinances in the country, which, among other things, permitted either sex to use public restrooms nominally reserved for women, and attempts to make what was universally accepted morality just a few years ago into “hate speech.”  There was a huge recall effort that generated tens of thousands of signatures in record time, but the left wing cabal running the city just ignored the petition and then, in retaliation, demanded of local pastors (who were not directly involved in the recall effort, but certainly did oppose the new ordinance) all the contents of their sermons for the past several months, apparently in the hope to find evidence with which to embarrass and incriminate those who stand in opposition to the advancing immorality.  Sermons by a number of pastors – it is unknown if any are Catholic – are now under subpoena by the city, with threat of jail time if the pastors refuse to turn the contents of their sermons over.

The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity or Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court. [One might wonder on what possible grounds, but the controversial ordinance makes it a "crime" to denounce the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah.]

“The city’s subpoena of sermons and other pastoral communications is both needless and unprecedented,” Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christina Holcomb said in a statement. “The city council and its attorneys are engaging in an inquisition designed to stifle any critique of its actions.” [Eerily similar to events a couple years ago in El Paso. In that case, too, the city council and mayor who foisted an incredibly unpopular measure extending benefits to "same sex partners" used every devious means of legal trickery and naked force to block the will of the people]

ADF, a nationally-known law firm specializing in religious liberty cases, is representing five Houston pastors. They filed a motion in Harris County court to stop the subpoenas arguing they are “overbroad, unduly burdensome, harassing, and vexatious.”……

……The subpoenas are just the latest twist in an ongoing saga over the Houston’s new non-discrimination ordinance. The law, among other things, would allow men to use the ladies room and vice versa.  The city council approved the law in June.

The Houston Chronicle reported opponents of the ordinance launched a petition drive that generated more than 50,000 signatures – far more than the 17,269 needed to put a referendum on the ballot.

However, the city threw out the petition in August over alleged irregularities.

After opponents of the bathroom bill filed a lawsuit the city’s attorneys responded by issuing the subpoenas against the pastors. [So then this is just political retaliation, yes?]

The pastors were not part of the lawsuit. However, they were part of a coalition of some 400 Houston-area churches that opposed the ordinance. The churches represent a number of faith groups – from Southern Baptist to non-denominational. [But no Catholics, as far as I could determine.  We don't want to be controversial, after all.  And with the Synod, oh, who knows how things may change!  The prime opposition seems to come from conservative evangelical types.  The only traditional Catholic parishes in the Houston area are located well outside the city limits, and thus the authority, of these repressive leftists]

“City council members are supposed to be public servants, not ‘Big Brother’ overlords who will tolerate no dissent or challenge,” said ADF attorney Erik Stanley.  “This is designed to intimidate pastors.”

Mayor Parker will not explain why she wants to inspect the sermons. I contacted City Hall for a comment and received a terse reply from the mayor’s director of communications.

“We don’t comment on litigation,” said Janice Evans. [Very similar to the behavior of the Obama Administration.  We shall never recover from these 8 years]

However, ADF attorney Stanley suspects the mayor wants to publicly shame the ministers. He said he anticipates they will hold up their sermons for public scrutiny. In other words – the city is rummaging for evidence to “out” the pastors as anti-gay bigots.

It sounds to me like it’s a good time for a whole bunch of hard drives to crash.  It works so well for the federal government, after all.  It appears none of the pastors in question are going to comply.  They face possible jail time for “contempt of court.”  It will be interesting to see whether, even if they win in this case, this threat does not have a further chilling effect on opposition to the sodomite cabal.

This is exactly the kind of hateful, vindictive behavior we can expect from those so lost in immorality.  There is such a thing as the reprobate sense, which develops in those souls so given over to sin that they no longer have the ability to change right from wrong.  Many, perhaps most, who develop reprobate sense start with sins against the 6th and 9th Commandments.  Certainly, once one is so lost in sin – as we have seen so often among pro-aborts – sin starts to add unto sin, and the evil and cruel tendencies branch outward into other areas.  We also have seen very strong evidence that this radical sodomite cabal that is feeling so empowered of late, having bullied tens of millions into acquiescence of their immoral acts, tends to brook absolutely no criticism whatsoever.  Much of what the sodomite cabal is trying to achieve, politically and culturally, is oriented towards seeking that constant affirmation they crave, the better to quell any remaining scruples they may have.

So, this is to me utterly predictable, and something the faithful can expect much more of as time goes by and the institutionalization of gross perversion becomes more and more entrenched.  The room in which faithful Christians are allowed to operate will grow steadily narrower. They seek to drive us from the public square, and will not be satisfied there.  They will also attempt to insinuate their evils into the churches themselves, punishing those who do not comply and attempting to force even the most recalcitrant souls to embrace their wantonness. They seek to utterly destroy the Church, the constant enemy and eternal target of all left wing groups, as the final impediment between them and ultimate power.

And this Synod may give perfect cover to that large number of Catholic bishops and priests who would eagerly go along.

Supreme Court overturns 5th Circuit ruling reinstates abortion mills in Texas October 15, 2014

I guess I should not have been surprised, but apparently Anthony Kennedy and John Roberts (those well known Catholics in good standing) are once again having scruples about limiting the availability of abortion in this country.  So, in spite of strong opposition from Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, and Clarence Thomas, the Supreme Court overturned the 5th Circuit’s ruling of two weeks ago permitting the implementation of aspects of House Bill 2 that would have shuttered 80% of the abortion mills in the state. These are the aspects having to do with abortuarys – where major surgery certainly takes place, as anyone who has ever seen the blood-stained women leaving mills can attest – having to meet minimal ambulatory surgery center requirements.  While the 5th Circuit had ruled that the health and safety requirements could be implemented while the final ruling was still pending at the circuit level, the Supreme Court overturned that ruling and said they could not.  They also lifted the requirement that doctors have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals for mills in McAllen and El Paso.

I guess I should not have been surprised, as the Supreme Court has already noted, abortion is the vital backstop to one of the main, defining elements of the current American lifestyle, contraception, and hence cannot be made too inconvenient.

Abortion mills that have been closed for over a week are now free to reopen with this ruling.  How many babies will be brutally slaughtered as a result is known only to God:

The Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked key parts of a 2013 law in Texas that had closed all but eight facilities providing abortions in America’s second most-populous state.

In an unsigned order, the justices sided with abortion rights advocates and health care providers in suspending an Oct. 2 ruling by a panel of the New Orleans-based U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals that Texas could immediately apply a rule making abortion clinics statewide spend millions of dollars on hospital-level upgrades. [No they are not "hospital level."  They are the same requirements any day surgery center has to meet.  Guess what, when you rip a living, growing entity intimately connected to the mother's body, that constitutes surgery!  There is blood and infection and all manner of risk. This is a long, long overdue requirement, but the abortion mill hates it, because it will so cut into the abortionists bottom line that most choose to close their mills rather than meet the requirements, proving once again that abortion, for most child-murderers, is about filthy lucre, as it always has been.  Only a narrow group of pro-abort ideologues like Planned Barrenhood are so committed to abortion as their dark sacrament of hate that they will take the hit and upgrade facilities to meet the requirements.]

The court also put on hold a separate provision of the law only as it applies to clinics in McAllen and El Paso that requires doctors at the facilities to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. The admitting privileges remains in effect elsewhere in Texas. [The tenor of these rulings makes me suspect the Supreme Court will overturn them even if the Fifth Circuit rules in favor of HB2]

Justices Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas said they would have ruled against the clinics in all respects.

The 5th Circuit is still considering the overall constitutionality of the sweeping measure overwhelmingly passed by the GOP-controlled Texas Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Rick Perry last year. [Can you believe we live in a country where this is even a question?  But this is far from the only one]

But even as it weighs the merits of the law, the appeals court said that it can be enforced in the meantime — opening the door for the emergency appeal to the Supreme Court……..

……Until the nation’s highest court intervened, only abortion facilities in the Houston, Austin, San Antonio and the Dallas-Fort Worth areas remained open. And none was left along the Texas-Mexico border or outside any of the state’s largest urban areas. [28 of 35 - 80% - were closed.  Even Planned Barrenhood's new super center in South Dallas - which is supposed to meet the new requirements -  was closed last week, apparently]

It will be interesting to see whether the Supreme Court will allow all aspects of HB2 to stand. I am confident that the Fifth Circuit will rule favorably in all respects.  I fear the “Catholic” majority on the Supreme Court is just a dice roll – we never know how they are going to rule, and they are darned clear about the fact that they never, ever allow the Faith to guide their judgments.  Even Scalia declared as much.  Incredible.

Pray this law remains in full effect. Yes, it is far from perfect, yes, it leaves abortion legal, but it did go very, very far in dramatically limiting the availability of abortion in this state. I am confident that if fully implemented tens of thousands of babies will be saved a year.  It is one of the most effective and far-reaching abortion-limiting laws passed anywhere in the country.

Supreme Court declines to hear state sodo-marriage challenges, now certain to be legal in most states October 7, 2014

I think it was last year about this time, even before fully-in-communion Anthony Kennedy peered into his crystal ball and discerned that people of the same sex could “marry,” that I said that sodo-marriage would be “legal,” whatever that means, in all fifty states within 3 years.  I was probably too optimistic, only months after one man arrogated to himself the right to rule on the nature of an institution as old, or older, than human civilization, marriage will be effectively destroyed and trivialized in most states during this year of Our Lord 2014:

In a move that surprised most commentators, the Supreme Court declined to accept for review (PDF) any of the seven petitions pending in same-sex marriage cases. There was no circuit split on this issue, which (as I wrote just this morning) tends to militate against the high court stepping in.

This means same-sex marriage is now the law of the land in Utah, Oklahoma, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Virginia, which were seeking to preserve state laws and state constitutional amendments limiting marriage to opposite-sex couples. Moreover, the Supreme Court’s decision not to intervene in sweeping circuit courts of appeals decisions in the Fourth Circuit (covering Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and the Carolinas), the Seventh Circuit(covering Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin), and the Tenth Circuit (covering Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Utah, and Wyoming) makes it all but a certainty that same-sex marriage will be legalized in the remaining states in those circuits.

Same-sex marriage cases remain pending in the Fifth Circuit (covering Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi) and the Sixth Circuit (covering Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee). It’s conceivable, although not very likely, that either court could reject same-sex marriage, which would give us the circuit split necessary for the Supreme Court to take up the issue.

So those of us in Texas and a few other states can continue to enjoy marriage as it has always been understood for perhaps a few more months. For most of the rest of the union, such as it is, marriage is made a laughingstock and a tool to advance the agenda of the tiniest of aggrieved, perverse minorities.

But recall, those seeking most this cherished “right” make plain their interest is not really to enjoy “marriage” as it has always been practiced as the union of two individuals, but to destroy marriage as a cultural and legal institution.  Their goal is government subsidies for any individuals or groups to engage in their preferred perversion without respect to any legal definition of “marriage,” which the more extreme but probably honest partisans of the sodo-marriage acknowledge – and hope – will bring about the ultimate destruction of the basic building block of human civilization.

Ours is a truly sick and twisted age.  I don’t know what to say beyond that.

Pity the children.  The vast majority will be raised in such perverse and twisted manners that finding the Truth will be all but impossible for them.  It will take a moral miracle to penetrate the hard armor of leftist error and diabolical lust turned loose.  God always finds a way to reach certain souls, but many who are touched by God will be too enervated to notice.  And that last bit, finally and completely cutting people off from God, has always been the ultimate goal of the left.

Catholic? Anthony Kennedy has played a huge part (and far more than once) in helping to assure the ascendancy of leftism in this country, anyway.  But he remains in such good standing he at least annually receives the Blessed Sacrament from the very hands of a prince of the Church.

Jihad comes to Oklahoma September 29, 2014

Is there any coincidence, that mere days after a satanic black mass was held in Oklahoma City, a woman – a complete stranger – was beheaded in yet another case of “sudden jihad syndrome” in nearby Moore?  I think we would be wise not to discount the possible connection:

Police are charging a man accused of beheading a woman at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Okla.

The Moore Police Department says charges filed against Alton Alexander Nolen will include first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

Law enforcement will officially file the paperwork in the District Attorney’s office Monday.

Alton Nolen is also accused of stabbing another woman before being shot himself by an Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office reserve deputy, Mark Vaughan, who is also the company CEO.

Nolen, a recent convert to Islam, allegedly attacked a woman Thursday at a Vaughan Foods processing plant, soon after he learned he’d lost his job there.

Police said he walked into the front office and attacked one of the first people he encountered, Colleen Hufford, 54.

He severed her head with a knife and then attacked 43-year-old Traci Johnson.

Johnson has been released from the hospital after being treated for numerous wounds.

Nolen, 30, was interviewed by investigators on Friday. Police have not revealed what he said.

The FBI said there are no indications linking Thursday’s attack to terrorism……… [Of course not!  Beheading random people is just your normal, everyday murder!  There isn't a prominent muslim group in the world trying to terrorize a vast region into submission using beheadings and similar terror tactics, including against children!]

……..The FBI is now looking into Nolen’s background after his former co-workers said he tried to convert them to Islam after converting to the religion himself.

Lewis says the FBI is working in conjunction with the Moore Police Department, especially when it comes to the religious aspect of the case.

No, it’s not. The FBI is involved to try to hush-up and intimidate all involved to drop any notion that this man’s religious belief had anything to do with the crime. Even though his Facebook was pasted with tributes to jihadis, he had very vocally converted to islam in prison, and he had been proselytizing his co-workers for some time, and to such a degree that he had to be fired.  But nothing to see here, move along!

I tell you, our government has rapidly devolved into a situation where coverups and constant lies are the standard operating procedure, all at the service of the agenda of the entrenched elites. By that, I do not just mean the present administration, but most of the bureaucracy from the local to the federal level, which seems to have gone whole hog over the past 10-15 years into being little more than taxpayer-funded agents of leftism.

This is a joke.

Regarding the mosque where Nolen was apparently radicalized, or further radicalized, no, nothing to see here:, yet again

went to the same mosque the Oklahoma Muslim who beheaded his co-worker today. I live ten minutes away!

The Imam was Imad Enchassi the last I heard. He was a friend of mine. He is a Lebanese-born Sunni who hates Israel. He once gave a sermon that the Israelis were trying to collapse al-Aqsa mosque by digging tunnels underneath it. They have no issue with Palestinian suicide bombings because, as it was explained to me, that is the only weapon the Palestinians have.

They sold Milestones in the book shop while I was there, which as you know calls for replacing all non-Islamic governments with Islamic ones. I remember listening to a tape a friend of mine, Yahya Graff, another white convert to Islam, had that prayed for the destruction of Israel and America.

The imam when I first converted, Suhaib Webb, is hailed as a moderate by liberals in the United States but he was the one that explicitly told me that according to Islam, three choices are to be given to non-Muslims: convert, pay the jizyah tax and live under Islamic rule, or jihad.

I’m sure that’s just your average run of the mill radicalism for Saudi- and Emirate-funded mosques.  So how common is this?

Perhaps becoming more so:

In a bizarre coincidence, a fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested Friday after a co-worker reported he threatened to cut her head off.

Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a terrorism complaint. His bail is set at $1 million…….

……..Muriithi was identified as a native of Kenya who is living in Oklahoma City. He worked at Bellevue Nursing Home in northwest Oklahoma City, police reported………

……She said Muriithi identified himself as a Muslim and said he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians,” the detective told a judge in the affidavit. The two had not worked together before…….

…….The FBI said Friday about the tragedy in Moore that there is no current indication of any additional threat to residents of Oklahoma related to that incident. [Well, that statement could be true, if you steadfastly refuse to recognize reality.  Once again, it's all about perception and perceived threats to the leftist agenda, so nothing to see here. The more these events are so obviously related to the false religion of islam, the more the relation has to be denied.]

 Our government has become an utter joke. There are banana republics looking down on us now.  I guess this is what comes from having a muslim president.

Everything is upside down.  Having babies is bad (global warming), but sodomy good.  Humility means ostentatious displays of false simplicity.  Marriage is for sodomites, while heterosexuals don’t even bother anymore.  Thus, the world, absent the saving balm of Jesus Christ and His Church.  It is Kafka-esque madness.

On the upside, martyrdom atones enormously for sin, so we’ve got that going for us.

satanic black mass held, thousands protest and Process September 22, 2014

WARNING, some images and sounds of satanic activity are visible in the first video.  I strongly recommend turning sound off and averting eyes during the evil parts.

This country was founded on several gross errors, some of the gravest being the false idea of “religious freedom,” which in practice means official agnosticism if not atheism, and the idea that even the most perverse, disgusting acts somehow qualify as protected “speech” (OK, the last bit was not explicit at the founding, but has come to be held as a sacred shibboleth by the purveyors of leftism).  Historically, in Christendom, blasphemy was a very grave civil offense.  But that was long ago, and governments now, in a sense, endorse not only blasphemy but even offenses to God as infinite as the mocking of His Passion, Death, and Resurrection as re-presented in every Mass.

The black mass was held. I have not really tried to find out the details, but they claim no consecrated Host was used.  It seems there were also several other elements apparently missing from this “black mass” presentation.  But there was still immense ugliness, perversion, effrontery, and the gravest of offenses against the God whole so loves and created them.  Also on display were some very, very, very lost souls, souls who have such empty lives they are willing to commit even an act of ultimate evil in order to attract a bit of attention to barren existence. And that refers not only to those who committed this montrosity, but also those who, either through some desire to bask in the reflected darkness or out of some morbid sense of curiosity, witnessed this nightmare.

Two videos below on the atrocity, and the reaction.  The first covers bits of both, and, I have to say, gives a fair amount of coverage to the insane rantings of the satanists at the black mass itself.  I would really advise watching with the sound down, or only turning it on for those parts that are licit and not steeped in evil. Avert your eyes from the evil.  It may be best not to watch at all. For those who do want to see the reaction from thousands of faithful Catholics, see below. Thanks to reader MS for the link:

This video has more on the reaction with less objectionable content:

There was a large Procession, there were a couple thousand people, at least, protesting (though I saw one site that said 16,000), there was a lot of good witness, but, still, it happened.  It was not stopped.  That’s where we’re at.  That’s how weak we are.  Sorry, I don’t see any other way around it.  At least a couple of souls went beyond the bounds of what our government overlords saw as acceptable behavior and were arrested for trying to save the souls of those involved in this calamity.  Maybe I’m not supposed to say this, but good for them.  What is 1000 had rushed the doors?

But we Catholics have been conditioned to be nice, sheep-like Americans for 150 years, at least.  Don’t rock the boat!  Don’t offend the protestant majority!  Don’t make waves!  Infiltrate, don’t chastise!  Protestants are our brothers!  We shouldn’t judge “gays.”  Marriage is between a man and a woman, but “civil unions” might be OK!  Abortion is bad, but never mention the cause of the vast majority of them, contraception!  No one really goes to hell!  Muslims are our brothers!  We all believe in the same “god!” And on and on, until we got to where we got today?

So, how long before it becomes “protected speech” to bust open tabernacles and let horses drop their dung on Our Lord, as happened in the Cristiada?  And will the vast majority of our leaders hide their heads then, too?

If readers judge it advisable, I may delete the first video.

Blasphemous satanic black “mass” still scheduled for Sunday, Sept 21 September 16, 2014

And I read somewhere it is “sold out,” whatever that means. Satan is indeed having a field day and then some.  How sad is that?

The infinitely evil affront against the Living God that is the black mass will, barring a miracle or some unforeseen event, take place this Sunday – although, it is believed, without a consecrated Host.  On Our Lord’s day, naturally. I do not know what kind of response is planned in OKC – I hope a very crowded and vociferous one.  At one time I did plan to travel to OKC to participate in any protests, but this dang staph infection  just doesn’t quite want to go away (please keep praying).  And, we must keep praying that this mass – which, by its very nature, recognizes in its blind hatred the existence of not only God but the Real Presence, but rejects the Love of both – will be cancelled.  The affair in Boston at least resulted with the satanists, as they should be, on the run, and having to conduct their evil under cover.  And that was all decided at the last minute, so there is still hope.

TFP Student Action, whatever you think of their parent organization, has pushed a petition that has over 50,000 signatures and is seeking to hit 100,000 before Sunday. The petition will be presented to Oklahoma City civic leaders prior to this sacrilege taking place.  If you haven’t signed it already, you might consider doing so:

I regret to inform you that satanists are still planning a “Black Mass” on city property at the Civic Center in Oklahoma City on Sunday, September 21, 2014.

Please spread the word to all your friends so we can stop this sacrilege.  Your voice and prayers were decisive at Harvard University ­– the “Black Mass” there was stopped.  Canceled.  Saint Michael won a great victory that day. And God can win again.

Our first goal of 50,000 petitions has been achieved.  The new goal is now 100,000.  Your petition, together with many more, will be presented to the Civic Center, as well as the Mayor of Oklahoma City and the Governor of Oklahoma before September 21.

One news item refers to the “Black Mass” in these terms:  “A Religious Black Mass will be conducted as a public event to help educate the public about Religious Satanism.  Enjoy the delights of the Devil.”  [Was that proselytism for satan done by some newsie in ignorance, or forbearance? 

Registered sex offender Adam Daniels will be leading the anti-Catholic satanic ritual on public property.

Every black mass is a direct, deliberate and sinful act of hatred against God.  Typically, a Consecrated Host is stolen from a Catholic Church and then used to desecrate, mock and insult the Catholic Mass.  The Person of Our Lord Jesus Christ is attacked in a most vile and unspeakable manner.  These insults against God are not only offensive to Christians, but also repulsive to everyone of good will.

In this instance, maybe we should be like democrats – voting early and often.  If you have multiple e-mails addresses and a few convenient aliases…..

Locally, I know some parishes will be having Adoration in reparation for this diabolical sickness.  I know Bishop Slattery, at least, plans Eucharist Processions and Adoration in Tulsa.  Are there acts of reparation planned for your diocese or parish?

Lord what a dark time!  Have mercy on us for having so offended You!  Please change our hearts through Your Grace!  Help Your poor suffering Church.

 

Our radical feminist betters call for killing of 3 billion men September 15, 2014

Like it or not, radical feminists make up a highly influential part of that nebulous coalition of self-anointed elitists (incl: academics, media, politicians, leading businessmen, left wing advocacy groups, etc) who have arrogated to themselves the right to determine what the rest of us should think, say, and do. Feminism, the perverse marriage of lesbianism and marxism, is a hugely influential force in Western “culture.”  I have personally seen how even many individuals striving to be faithful Catholics have, through absorption of the dominant cultural mores, adopted Sally_Miller_Gearhart_Lesbian_Feministmany quite radical beliefs derived from feminism (radical in the historical or traditional sense. They may be quite “conservative” views today, but they would have been radical 50 or 100 years ago.  A few of these are innocuous. Most are not, and have helped spread a great deal of misery and resulted in more than a few broken marriages.  Both men and women can fall victim to this type of thinking).  Feminism – marxist lesbianism –  is part of the wicked broth in which we stew in this decadent and fallen culture.

How sick are radical feminists?  Robert Stacy McCain has essentially written a book in the past 6-8 months documenting the near total insanity – and hatred of any traditional moral order – espoused by virtually every marxist lesbian/feminist.  There are too many examples to list, and I don’t recommend McCain’s site overall due to immoral material he posts with some regularity, but perhaps one example may serve as an indicator of all the rest.  In this particular example, an elderly marxist lesbian who lives alone with her cats*has been a long time advocate of the systematic murder of 90% of the world’s male population, the better to demonstrate her careful reasoning and general charity towards souls unhinged hatred towards everything male (I add emphasis and comments)

At least three further requirements supplement the strategies of environmentalists if we are to create and preserve a less violent world. I) Every culture must begin to affirm a female future. II)Species responsibility must be returned to women in every culture. III) The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race. . . . [First of all, the idea that a female dominated world would be one of enlightened virtue and peace is utterly unsubstantiated.  There isn't much historical precedent for such, but the underlying assumption of these man-hating lesbians is that woman = good, man = utterly evil.  Therefore, anything can be justified in the pursuit of the destruction of the male half of the species]

To return species responsibility to women means in very practical terms that erotic and reproductive initiative must be restored to women all over the globe. . . . Make the decision entirely that of the woman as to how she will be impregnated and how often, if indeed she chooses to be so at all, and whether by heterosexual intercourse, artificial insemination or a form of ovular merging. Restore to each woman the inalienable right to say what shall become of any fertilized egg and to control absolutely the number of children she wishes to emerge from her body. . . . Make nonexistent any male’s say-so in the process of reproduction. [Because, according to this creature of pure hate, men have absolutely no rights and exist only at her pleasure.  This is the ranting of someone who is clinically insane, and yet this individual, Sally Miller Gearhart, has been a highly influential professor and created one of the first "women's studies" programs in the nation. Her work is highly influential in marxist lesbian circles] Create and protect alternative structures of economic and psychological support for independent women — women not attached to men — who are child-bearers and child-raisers. . . . [She means state funding of women because they are women.  But when women make up 90% of the population, will some women want to be taxed to pay for the lifestyles of others?]

Women will bear the number of children they know can be sustained not just by their own social group but by the wide ecological system. [Is this because women are so intuitively brilliant they simply know how many people the planet will bear, or will their marxist lesbian overseers dictate to them what is acceptable?  Who has money on the latter?] They will not bear the children that some man wants only to perpetuate his name or the family possession of his property; they will not bear the children they presently convince themselves they must have because their only role is obedient wife and mother; [For how many women does this kind of thinking even remotely apply at this point?] women will not have the children men think are necessary to perpetuate the tribe or the religion or the specific culture. Instead they will bear the children that they want, that they can care for, and that they assess are needed by the specific group and the entire species. . . . [This means central planning and regulation of procreation.  Brave New World, the marxist dystopia, yet again]

In every culture it must be women in charge of the changes: [Because she says so!  No authoritarianism, no will to power here!] women-identified women, no women who are pawns of men, no women who out of their fear of losing their lives or those of their children, still hold to the securities of that dangerous patriarchal culture, [It doesn't seem so dangerous compared to your unhinged self-pleasuring fantasy. I don't know many men calling for the murder of 3 billion people] but women utterly free of coercion, free of male influence and committed to the principle that the right of species regulation is their own, and not the prerogative of any man. I suggest that lesbians and other independent women are already moving in this direction. . . . [Pity them.  If we needed an example of how truly sick perverse sexual desires and acts can make someone, I think we've just gotten an object lesson]

To secure a world of female values and female freedom we must, I believe, add one more element to the structure of the future: the ratio of men to women must be radically reduced so that men approximate only ten percent of the total population. . . . [Of course!  What marxist program would be complete without the wholesale slaughter of billions!  That's how all marxist stories end!]

We now come to a critical point: how is such a reduction in the male population to take place? One option is of course male infanticide. It differs very little from the female infanticide that has apparently been carried out even into the twentieth century by some cultures. Such an alternative is clearly distasteful and would not constitute creative social change. . . . [But I doubt she'd be very much opposed if push came to shove. I would ask this poor sick soul, who is fighting the most against female infanticide?  It is surely not the marxist feminists, who cannot criticize the practice, because to do so might weaken support for their most sacred shibboleth, abortion on demand and without apology.  No, it is the hated, patriarchal pro-life movement!  But irony is utterly lost on leftist ideologues]

[I]f women are given the freedom of their bodies then they may well choose [experimental "ovular merging" technology that produces only female embryos] in great enough numbers to make a significant difference in the sex ratio of women to men. A 75% female to 25% male ratio could be achieved in one generation if one-half of a population reproduced heterosexually and one-half by ovular merging. [And here the fantasy truly reaches insane dimensions, dreaming about a world where females can reproduce absent the contribution of men.  There is absolutely no evidence to substantiate this concept of rubbing two eggs together to create a new person. Even the thought is offensive to reason and just. plain. nuts.]

 Such a prospect is attractive to women who feel that if they bear sons no amount of love and care and nonsexist training will save those sons from a culture where male violence is institutionalized and revered. These are women saying, “No more sons. We will not spend twenty years of our lives raising a potential rapist, a potential batterer, a potential Big Man. [So, according to marxist lesbian Gearhart (boy, is that name apropos), ANYONE who has the potential to grow up to be ANYTHING evil should be wiped out before they are born.  Why doesn't this woman address the skeleton's in her own movement's closet, like the extremely high rates of violence in lesbian relationships?  Oh, yes, I forget...facts are inconvenient.]

This post is a bit off topic, perhaps, but it’s important to know just what “feminism” is.  McCain has proven quite conclusively to this blogger that feminism is the product of marxist man-hating lesbians, whose “utopia” is a world of savage cruelty and complete disregard for one half of all humanity – and their total authoritarian control over the remaining half.  It is also another manifestation of leftist God-hatred, as this woman’s resentment towards God’s creating us male and female is palpable in every word.  Thus her wild eyed rantings about asexual reproduction and magical self-reproducing eggs.  This excerpt may seem extreme, even ludicrous, but such writings are taken very seriously within the “feminist” movement.  Unhinged diatribes like this are not at all uncommon, and writings from women like this feature prominently in women’s studies programs at colleges across the country, programs that are oriented towards only one thing: generating more man-hating marxist lesbians.

“Feminism” is one of the most noxious and destructive of the leftist errors that have afflicted Western (ahem) civilization in the past 100 years.  Distilled to its essence, it provides a cover and refuge for the hateful fantasies (which would be acted out if they ever got the chance) of very lost and disturbed sexual deviants.  Do not let your daughters (or sons) fall prey to its seductive claims of victimhood and its pretensions toward power!  Feminism is already directly responsible for the deaths of at least 1 billion children through direct abortion, and who knows how many billions prevented from seeing life through contraception.  It is a philosophy, like all leftism, straight out of hell and something to be opposed at all turns.

There is a bit of humor in all this.  I can’t quite escape the notion that what really drives women like this nuts is precisely the fact that they are not a man.  And they are so very, very angry with God over that fact.  Perhaps I’m off, but it seems very likely to me………
