Belgian King signs child euthanasia bill into law March 5, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Basics, Christendom, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, sadness, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
How long before the sexular pagans have altars of sacrifice set up to burn children to death? That is, after all, what their satanic “god” ultimately wants. Of course, he already gets that in abortion, so maybe such visible demonstrations are passe’. Still, God put a need for worship in man’s heart, but modern paganism has rejected God and seems headed towards truly perverse forms of diabolical worship. I cannot but see the below as yet another step in this process of moral and spiritual degradation.
I blogged about the legislation passed in Belgium a short while back, legalizing euthanasia for children. In a supposed act of mercy (how perverse understanding of the virtues has become!), this bill requires the children to agree to their being killed! Can you imagine! My little boy has been very sick for the past week, and at times he became afraid because he did not know how much more sick he would become, or even if he would die. He was so sweet if sad and scared……and yet now parents are going to “ease the suffering” of their children (or is it themselves?) by asking them to die!
All hinged on the King of the Belgians. There was hope he would be as stout-hearted as his uncle, who resigned his monarchy rather than sign a pro-abortion bill. It was not to be. The King duly signed, and children can now be murdered in hospitals across Belgium.
Good Lord, it makes me sick:
The head of state has completely fulfilled his constitutional role despite various pressures.
King Philippe signed the law this Sunday on the extension of euthanasia to minors. This was the final act expected in the tracking process of the law since its adoption by the House, two weeks having elapsed after having been in the Senate. [that means this was the last act needed to promulgate the law]
There’s more, including an international petition signed by over 200,000 asking the king to refuse to sign, but obviously it was all for naught.
And so now we have yet another via media for the slaughter of the innocents. At least these children have a chance to be baptized, not that many in Belgium do that anymore.
And the sinking of the ship that was western culture accelerates a little bit more. A few of us are scrambling with buckets to bail the thing out, but we are so few, and the maddened masses continuing to pull out the hull cocks are so many.
Disney pressures Boy Scouts to have sodo-scoutmasters March 4, 2014Posted by tantamergo in abdication of duty, Basics, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, sadness, scandals, secularism, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
Disney Corporation, whatever it used to be, is now an open and avowed agent of the culture of death and evil, generally. The trail of destruction that follows virtually all young Disney stars should be enough to tell us there is something gravely immoral at play in that giant corporation.
As part of their continuing efforts to advance radical cultural change and the destruction of the traditional family (does Disney have research that shows that kids in single-parent or other non-traditional homes tends to watch more?), Walt Disney World has told the Boy Scouts of America- which organization jumped the shark last year in admitting openly homosexual scouts – to start admitting sodomy loving scoutmasters by 2015 or lose funding:
Walt Disney World has decided it will stop funding the local Boy Scouts of America chapter beginning next year unless the childhood group allows open homosexuals to serve as Scoutmasters.
The Disney corporation said the BSA violates its non-discrimination policy. Disney World’s VoluntEARS program allows employees to trade volunteer work for donations to a charity of their choice. But the scouts will no longer be eligible for these funds……
……Homosexual groups said the decision is a sign of their growing influence in the culture, especially in the realm of children’s entertainment [Think about that. A local priest says he knows our culture is dead when the men won't stand up to fight against sodomites redefining marriage and - their ultimate goal? - gaining influence over our children. If we won't fight against that, and I mean hard, what will we fight against?]
I think anyone with a smidgen of a brain knew that the Boy Scouts halfway embrace of the perverse culture by permitting homosexual-claiming youth wouldn’t last any length of time at all. The corporate powers that be, who play an instrumental role in advancing radical perversion in our culture, will not allow it. The Boy Scouts could have stood strong and been willing to suffer the consequences of remaining true to the dictates of Christ, but they chose to cave into the world. The first time is hardest, after that, it becomes easier and easier, until it becomes a habit.
For a good Catholic alternative to the Boy Scouts, consider the Troops of St. George.
Federal judge throws out Texas marriage amendment February 26, 2014Posted by tantamergo in abdication of duty, Basics, Dallas Diocese, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, martyrdom, persecution, sadness, scandals, secularism, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
Thanks to commenter skeinster for bringing this to my attention. Will we see a full-court press from the bishops to back marriage and the sanctity of the family in this state?
Yes, don’t hold your breath.
A federal district court judge – mimicking rulings in three other states - has thrown out the state constitutional amendment, approved by over 3/4 of the population, defining marriage according to God’s intent and Biblical edict. As I said last summer, it would not be three years until this hideous abomination will be the law of the land. I was wildly overoptimistic, it won’t be 2 years:
A federal judge in San Antonio has overturned a 2005 amendment banning gay marriage. U.S. Judge Orlando Garcia joins a growing number of federal judges in states like Utah, Ohio, Oklahoma, Kentucky and, more recently, Virginia, who have declared bans on gay marriage are in violation of the United States Constitution. Currently, gay marriage is legal in 17 states.
In his official order, Garcia writes, “Today’s court decision is not made in defiance of the great people of Texas or the Texas Legislature, but in compliance with the U.S. Constitution and Supreme Court precedent.” You can read the ruling here.
The ruling was made after a lawsuit filed in October 2013 by Mark Phariss and Vic Holmes who, alongside another same sex couple, sued the state of Texas for the right to marry. Phariss and Holmes, who make their home in West Plano near Dallas……
The judge at least had the decency to stay his decision until the 5th circuit hears Texas’ appeal, but given that the Supreme Court said, in a formal ruling, that the only reason to oppose two sodomites pretending to be married is due to prejudice, it’s unlikely the appeals court will decide any differently.
A mighty retribution is coming, and it will not be pretty. Pray you and I remain faithful! Pray we don’t try to flee the coming wrath! As I have said elsewhere today – and how providential were those posts! – these folks will stop at nothing to crush any and all opposition, especially that which is religiously based.
As for this country, it’s done. It is culturally and morally exhausted.
I thank again “Catholic” Anthony Kennedy for making this moment possible, just as he kept abortion legal, just as he overturned anti-sodomy laws……he’s been a Catholic for the ages, hasn’t he?!? Yet, he remains a “Catholic in good standing” blaspheming the Holy Spirit and committing the gravest of sacrilege week in and week out when he presents for Communion. And yet bishops and cardinals continue to hand it out to him, including Cardinal Burke.
I ask again, if Kennedy is not excommunicate, why does the Church even retain laws pertaining to excommunication on the books?
Oh, yes……I remember. For those crazy right wingers who get out of line from time to time.
Terrified children, betrayed by parents and physicians, will soon be dying in Belgium February 26, 2014Posted by tantamergo in abdication of duty, Basics, Christendom, disaster, error, family, foolishness, General Catholic, Holy suffering, horror, martyrdom, sadness, scandals, self-serving, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
And, as yet, our Holy Father has not seen fit to make one criticism of the Belgian parliament’s decision to legalize
child killing euthanasia. Fr. George Rutler has some thoughts on the matter, and raises one salient hope. Pray, pray that the King of Belgium, Philippe, will refuse to give the royal assent to this disastrous bill, provoking a “constitutional crisis” but also keeping it from going into law:
On February 13, when the Belgian Chamber of Deputies approved by a vote of 86 to 44 an amendment to its 2002 euthanasia law, extending its provisions to include the killing of children, a man in the gallery cried out, “Murderers!” Again, no one mentioned the cry, but there was an awkward silence until the man himself was silenced for exhibiting bad taste. He had dared to remove the linguistic fig leaf from the euphemism “euthanasia.” A euphemism covers shame, a timid confession by syntax rather than by sacrament, for a euphemism wants approval and not absolution.
Others have cried out, including a faculty member of Leuven University, Tom Mortier, whose mother had been “euthanized” in April 2012 without his permission by Doctor Wim Distelmans because she was chronically depressed. [Someone chronically depressed is not in full possession of her faculties. And yet the state killed her. This is so evil] Since then, legislators decided that children should share with adults a supposed right to be euthanized, when their present life is judged by the state, parents and the children themselves to be “unworthy of life.” [I can't even comment. Satan is having one of his best centuries ever] This resonates with the well known language of two university men, the jurist Karl Binding and the psychiatrist Alfred Hoche, whose 1920 treatise “Die Freigabe der Vernichtung Lebensunwertes Lebens” gave an academic veneer to the consequent and more impatient Nazi protocols for “destroying life unworthy of living.” Soon enough, vehicles rounded up the unfit, adults and children, with covered windows and sealed doors so that those inside could not be seen or heard. [Yes, we wouldn't want the lucky living to have to "suffer" any uncomfortable reminders of what's going on around them] In 1941, a teenaged cousin of Pope Benedict XVI, with Downs Syndrome, was taken away in that fashion by “therapists” despite his family’s pleas and never to be seen again.
The twentieth century was littered with failed utopias called worker’s paradises and others thousand year reichs……….
……By high irony, what was “Bleeding Belgium” at the end of World War I has voted to bleed itself to death with an admixture of extravagant utopianism and cynicism. King Albert II, father of the new king, Philippe, hoped that his son would be “an inspiration for Europe” as he was fit for the job “emotionally and intellectually,” having been at the Belgian Royal Military Academy, Oxford, and Stanford. Philippe’s saintly uncle, King Baudouin abdicated for one day in 2002 rather than sign the original euthanasia bill. The King of the Belgians now has only moral influence, but moral influence outlasts political influence, even if victims of power do not. If Baudouin’s nephew confounds expectations and refuses to give the Royal Assent, he will honor his uncle who asked parliament, “Does freedom of conscience apply to everyone except the King?” Should he yield, his figurehead role will be so disfigured that his picture will serve a purpose only on the other side of the postage stamps…… [Pray for this king!]
This is not only Belgium’s problem. Immediately after February 13, a regular columnist in the Los Angeles Times wrote that “for a child facing death in the short term, and in agony, we as a society should enable the child’s right to die with the least amount of suffering…. Even if the concept chills the bones.” [Just shut up with your evil. I won't even form an argument, should this not be so obviously evil that any non-psychotic could recognize it as such? But such is the foundation legalized baby killing has laid]
…..There is a macabre risibility about the Belgian provision that says that when parents and physicians decide to kill, “the child must be conscious of their decision and understand the meaning of euthanasia.” [And, of course, some poor dying child would never be unduly influenced by the adults around them, telling the child what was best for them. And by them, I mean the adults.....]
This is so evil it almost gives me a panic attack. Literally, when I think of some poor, sweet, very sick and in pain 6 year old girl, with her teddy bears and other indicators of her youth around her, being told by her parents (as the law demands) how killing her is really the very best thing, and that she should be a good girl and lay there and take her death easily, the better to spare the parents suffering (which is what this is really all about, this is not compassion, it is the worst kind of selfish dereliction of duty). I can imagine the panic the child would feel at this betrayal. It makes me want to scream and cry at the same time. I almost can’t stand it. It’s just too much.
And yet, right now, it appears the State of Massachusetts is doing all it can to kill a formerly perfectly healthy teenage girl. In reality, involuntary euthanasia, AKA murder, occurs all the time in hospitals, of old, young, and in between. We live in a utilitarian society, and if someone who has authority over you in a hospital, be it a nurse, doctor, administrator, or whomever, decides its time for you to die, unless you have family or other advocates watching like a hawk, they will kill you. That is the state of the medical profession, and our society, today.
Tragic: Thousands of churches closing in France. I know why. February 24, 2014Posted by tantamergo in abdication of duty, Basics, disaster, Ecumenism, error, General Catholic, Liturgy, sadness, scandals, secularism, shocking, Society, unadulterated evil.
As reported by Gillibrand, thousands of Catholic parishes are closing in France and being subsequently sold off, due to lack of attendance. Since the Council, weekly Mass attendance in France has fallen by about 80-90%. Today, fewer than 3% of self-described Catholics assist at Mass. It is likely that in the next 10-20 years, the majority of those who assist at Mass every week in France will be traditional Catholics. That may actually be a good thing.
However, in the interim, it will be very sad as church after church, parish after parish, is shuttered and sold off or torn down:
How has this come to be? Everyone knows, some more consciously than others. It has something to do with that Good Shepherd parish, just as it has to do with this below, also from Gillibrand:
Teddy bear “Mass.” With female “deacon?” Not from France, but similar occurs there frequently. As, apparently, we have very nearly the same here in the US.
Yes, there are many factors bearing upon the collapse of the Church in the West, but the Liturgy is the focal point of the Faith, so the anti-liturgical revolution has done as much or more to precipitate the collapse than any other factor.
PS – Who ever thought there might come a day when there would be more practicing muslims in France than Catholics? Is that ecumenism, too?
……and also attempt to influence the Church.
60 or 70 years ago, if one had told your average pious Catholic that there would come a day when a massively well funded and organized homosexual lobby would exist, and that said lobby would not only penetrate the Church but even gain control over numerous seminaries and chanceries around the country, to the extent that they managed to block thousands of valid vocations to the priesthood while replacing them with small numbers of their own kind, they would have been so amazed as to doubt your sanity. But that is the situation we face today.
What drives all the success is the enormous funding pro-sodomite lobbies have managed to acquire (and the fervent support of the diabolical, to be sure). Backed by a few high-dollar billionaires and the obvious self-interest of the few million active homosexuals in this country, these lobbies have resources that often far outstrip their competitors. That – coupled with vast homosexual penetration of the media and arts – means that ordinary folks are subjected to a constant campaign of highly orchestrated propaganda and agitation, all aimed at slowly breaking down people’s natural revulsion to homosexual acts and slow acceptance of perversion as “normal.”
In the video below, Michael Voris discusses the pink or lavender mafia, their funding, how they work, and how destructive their propaganda has been. Understanding the enemy is the first step towards countering him, and this enemy has both a human and a spiritual element. We know who drives the spiritual element in the homosexualization of society, but we need to understand how the human element works better. The relevant parts start below at ~28:00. Michael interviews good ‘ol “B-1″ Bob Dornan (leftists thought calling Dornan “B-1 Bob” was a pejorative, I always saw it as a badge of honor), longtime Congressman for southern California and stalwart Catholic and conservative:
Dornan explains how sodomite activists and their massive funding have managed to help flip two formerly conservative states – Colorado and Virginia – into the liberal camp. Of course, Californicating expats have helped doom Colorado, and the continuing explosive growth of the federal government (staffed over 90% by liberals/leftists) has helped turn Virginia, since so many federal workers now live in northern Virginia. But I have no doubt homosexual money has played a big part in the overall process.
If Dornan’s frequent segues and diversions away from the prime topic drive you nuts, be sure to watch the last fifteen minutes of the video which contains Michael’s dispatches episode on pink money and the homosexual mafia. It’s a much more concise presentation on the same subject, and even more disturbing.
Could the success of these sodomite activists bring about their ultimate undoing? Jewish tradition has always held, in the Talmud, that God unleashed the Biblical Flood that destroyed all mankind, save for Noah and his family, once humanity reached such dregs of perversion and immorality that they began to pretend to marry people of the same sex. We have reached that point again. While God promised never to entirely wipe out all Creation ever again, I think all pious souls sense a mighty chastisement brewing. I don’t know how God will deal with these constant affronts to the natural law and Divine Positive Law, affronts so great that the Law is not just being flouted, but disrespected and laughed at with satanic glee, but I don’t think it will be very pretty for these activists of perversion.
Let us pray we remain faithful should we live to see this awful day.
REPOST: The Church has been condeming abortion since its inception February 19, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Abortion, awesomeness, Basics, catachesis, contraception, General Catholic, Grace, horror, Papa, self-serving, sexual depravity, true leadership, unadulterated evil.
REPOST. I wrote the post below just over a year ago. In it, I demonstrate that the Church has been vehemently opposed to abortion since its inception. One of the earliest non-Gospel documents in Church history lists both abortion and sodomy as horrific sins. However, at catechism class last night, the priest explained how the Didache also opposed contraception. That is the “you shall not….use potions” below, because many of those “potions” were meant to render women sterile for the purposes of fornication.
In spite of the fact that the Church has always been opposed to abortion, contraception, and all these other sins of concupiscence, in spite of the constant and repeated exhortations against these very sins, today, the vast majority of self-described Catholics have allowed themselves to be fooled by satan into thinking these sins really aren’t sins at all. As the priest said last night, they think when it comes to Dogma, God is saying “Let’s make a deal,” when God is really saying “This IS the deal.”
There have always been heretics in the Church. The word “heretic” derives from a Greek root meaning “I choose.” I choose not to obey. That is exactly what satan said those many years ago. For the first time in the history of the Church, not just the hierarchy has gone loopy, not just the priests, not just the people, but virtually everyone. That is how his modernist heresy is different from every other heresy that’s come before, because it is so universal. It’s everywhere. Even in sub-Saharan Africa and the Philippines, those supposed bedrocks of the Faith, they are embracing contraception, divorce, and other sins against the Faith.
We are in a crisis unlike any the Church has ever experienced. But the Church will come through it, She always has. We simply must remain faithful. And pray.
BEGIN OLD POST. My fellow parishioner Taylor Marshall has a post up that reminds us that, like all Dogmatic beliefs, the Church’s vehement opposition to abortion has been the constant belief of the Church for 2000 years. In fact, one of the very earliest non-biblical documents of the earliest Church, the Didache, includes this condemnation of abortion (and certain other sins which have suddenly become culturally approved. I note that the Didache was written between AD 70 and 90, it’s one of the very earliest Church documents, and is believed to be a repository of the belief of the Apostles):
The second commandment of the teaching: You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not seduce boys. You shall not commit fornication. You shall not steal. You shall not practice magic or use potions. You shall not procure abortion, nor destroy a new-born child. You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods. You shall not perjure yourself. You shall not bear false witness. You shall not speak evil. You shall not bear malice….
It is fascinating to me, that in this list, which obviously contains much from the Decalogue, there are a few specific additions to that most basic code of moral living God has given to us. The first is that one shall not seduce boys, which, in the context where this was written, was a command to men not to engage in homosexual acts. Then there are the comdenmnations of black magic, potions and spells – something that sadly is making a comeback in our pagan culture. Then there is the condemnation of abortion. In the same league as murder and all the other worst sins. Not a right. Not a choice. A grave immorality, the gravest of sins. Abortion and infanticide were both widely practiced in the Empire at this point. Rather like our own empire……
Similarly, Taylor Marshall’s post quotes Pope Sixtus V, in the first Papal Bull specifically condemning abortion (Effraenatam, 1588):
The Holy Father lists the dreadful means for procuring an abortion in his day. He describes the methods as “blows, poisons, medicines, potions, weights, burdens, work and labor imposed on a pregnant woman, and even other unknown and extremely researched means.” He also speaks of contraception as potions used to prevent conception.Here’s a quote against abortionists found in Effraenatam:“Noticing that frequently by various Apostolic Constitutions the audacity and daring of most profligate men, who know no restraint, of sinning with license against the commandment “do not kill” was repressed; We who are placed by the Lord in the supreme throne of justice, being counseled by a most just reason, are in part renewing old laws and in part extending them in order to restrain with just punishment the monstrous and atrocious brutality of those who have no fear to kill most cruelly fetuses still hiding in the maternal viscera. Who will not detest such an abhorrent and evil act, by which are lost not only the bodies but also the souls?”
Taylor asks a most prescient question – why do we not see the same kind of language used to condemn abortionists today? Or do we? If you’re Randall Terry, this doesn’t apply! But for the rest of us, I think terms like “abhorrent and evil act” are most apropos and should be in general use regarding baby murderers. I also think we should spend much more time focusing on how much damage is done to the souls of the abortionists, and how much they risk eternal damnation if they do not repent and desist from their wanton blood lust.
But in today’s world and Church, such damning language, once a staple of Papal denouncements of immorality, are almost totally forbidden. In fact, making such pronouncements can quickly have one condemned more vociferously than the abortionists themselves. And that’s pretty messed up. Sometimes, it takes a hard slap across the face to shake people lost in sin from their demonic stupor. I, for one, would welcome much more of the harsh old language – even if directed at myself.
Slap me around and tell me what a prideful prig I am! Or whatever….you get the point.
Hollywood in uproar! Christian song nominated for Oscar! Or not….. January 30, 2014Posted by tantamergo in asshatery, Basics, disaster, Ecumenism, error, General Catholic, persecution, pr stunts, sadness, scandals, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
How could some bible-humping Christofascists break through the Iron Curtain of leftism around the Pagan People’s Republic of Hollywood?!? This is not possible! The leftists are extremely upset. A song from an upcoming movie with Christian themes (well…….see the trailer and judge for yourself, I really have no idea how Christian it is) has been nominated for best original song. Leftists are gravely offended. So much for “tolerance,” or diversity of ideas. You will submit to your new secular pagan overlords or you will be crushed. Think I’m kidding? Check out this rhetoric in response to the nomination:
The nomination has received negative reactions not for its quality, but for the film’s endorsements by James Dobson, Rick Santorum, and Josh Dugger, executive director of Family Resource Council Action, among others. Film.com framed the movie as endorsed by “anti-gay hate group activists,” while the Boston Globe headline reads, “The Oscar nomination that stinks to heaven.” Hitflix writes: “There were audible gasps and chuckles when Cheryl Boone Isaacs began reading the list of nominees in the category, and first off the bat was “Alone Yet Not Alone” from, er, Alone Yet Not Alone…It doesn’t seem a stretch to call this Christian drama the most obscure feature film nominated for an Oscar this year.”
This tribalism would be funny if it weren’t so serious. The same people who 10 years ago probably couldn’t give a remote flip about pretend same-sex marriage now define their tribal cultural superiority based on it. Only the unwashed bitter clingers believe in something so uncouth as biblical truth or moral law. It’s amazing how much marxism has been unconsciously (or consciously) absorbed by those who would like to be our elites.
As I said, I don’t know anything about the movie itself, but here is the trailer and then a video of the song in question:
When you see the hook on the song and the performer, I think we can see why the Oscar committee selected it, and why the hateful reactions are so very revealing of diabolically darkened hearts. The performer is a quadriplegic:
Really, really not my kind of song, and surely not my kind of churchy music. But hats off to the performer, what a clear, strong voice she has. God can do all things.
Unfortunately, in this world, we rarely have happy endings. In an absolutely ludicrous, hypocritical decision, the Oscar committee has now REMOVED “Alone but Not Alone” from the list of contenders because the songwriter allegedly engaged in impermissible attempts to influence the selection process. This is an utter joke, these voters are wined and dined, flooded with mailings and slick glossy presentations, given free DVDs and other merchandise, all in an attempt to sway them to vote for a particular movie as a matter of course. That is why I said in response to the Grammy’s travesty that these award shows are immoral exercises in behind-the-scenes politicking and influence peddling.
All the songwriter did was e-mail some of the voters to make them aware of the song, since this movie has not been released, yet. Most would not be aware of it. This is nothing compared to the regular attempts to influence that are part of every Oscar process, as an Oscar nomination means millions of dollars.
What really happened, is that the Academy of “Motion Picture Art and Sciences” (please – arrogant much?) crumbled to leftist pressure. Hollywood, fo guck yourself:
The board of governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has rescinded the Oscar nomination for “Alone Yet Not Alone.” The board concluded that writer Bruce Broughton “had emailed [some of the other 239] members of the branch to make them aware of his submission during the nominations voting period,” according to a press release.
…..Since nominations were announced, the song—performed by quadriplegic Christian author and speaker Joni Eareckson Tada—drew criticism and confusion from Hollywood for beating out musicians featured in more popular films. The latest news stokes the debate even further, given that Oscar lobbying and campaigning are arguably common practices.
Oh, ALL opinions are welcomed in Hollywood, land of infinite diversity! Except, of course, for Christianity, which just won’t go away and die like they so want it to! Remember in my post the other day on St. John Chrysostom’s sermon, where he said that those who attack the Church really want to attack God? Well, yeah……….there you go.
Margaret Sanger – one of history’s greatest monsters January 27, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Abortion, contraception, disaster, error, General Catholic, horror, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
I have mentioned I have been reading Dr. Warren Carroll’s sixth and final volume to his history of Christendom series, The Crisis of Christendom. Just last night, I was reading a section that dealt with the incredibly pernicious, destructive, and one might even say demonic actions of Margaret Sanger. It was interesting to read – again – just how morally corrupt and dissolute she personally was. While she did mother three children into the world, she then went on to become an adulterous harlot who used men for the money and connections they could bring to her movement.
To say this woman was perverse would be an understatement. But her life and beliefs confirm for me, yet again, the old saying attributed to several great Saints, that public heresy is almost always a manifestation of some private sin. In that case, Margaret Sanger must be one of history’s great sinners, as she espoused some of the darkest, most diabolical ideas the world has ever seen.
Now, the below is a bad photoshop, but it does convey a real event that happened – Margaret Sanger did speak, very happily, to numerous Ku Klux Klan and other racist, eugenicist groups. In fact, eugenics was very much in vogue among wealthy white liberal “elites” prior to WWII, and Sanger was their darling. Unfortunately for them, Hitler rather ruined eugenics reputation in the immediate post-war years, so she changed the name of her organization to Planned Parenthood.
As I read in Dr. Carroll’s book last night, Sanger favored sterilization for 70% of the American population, and probably far higher levels for much of the world. She wanted a world where only people like her – “thoroughbreds,” as she liked to call them, wealthy, white, liberal elites – would be allowed to reproduce. She even favored the creation of a permanent standing army of 15-20 million (about 10% of the total population at that time) to herd the rest of us into concentration camps where we would be worked to death - after our mandatory sterilization.
I was going to transcribe some sections of Dr. Carroll’s book, but I forgot to bring it. Providentially, I got sent a link today that contains very similar material, so I’ll share that with you, instead:
“I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.”
–Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366
“I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into this world…”
–Margaret Sanger [Think about the mentality that would say such a thing, the self-serving evil behind it]
“Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.” So said Margaret Sanger……. [Ditto]
It goes on and on like that with Sanger. She really viewed people like cattle, at best. In fact, I think most ranchers have much more compassion for their cattle than Sanger did for her fellow humans. But that’s just it, she, and her numerous disciples today, don’t view vast swaths of humanity as really human. Certainly the unborn don’t count, nor do those with serious physical or mental problems (thus, we hear the rhetoric about a life being “not worth living”), nor even those who don’t live their life according to the manner liberals feel fitting or necessary. When you get done with all the paring down, there are darn few of us left.
That this is a satanic mentality should be obvious to anyone with even the faintest glimmer of sanctifying Grace in their soul. Unfortunately, that excludes more and more people today……
There is no end to the evil people will believe absent God.
Abortion mistress lies again January 24, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Abortion, Basics, contraception, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
I could not believe what I heard in the video below. The abortion industry, demonic to its core, survives strictly on lies.
Well, the NARAL witch below lays a whopper on the audience, stating that the number of abortions pre- and post- Roe v. Wade were essentially equal, and that the big difference Roe provided was that women were no longer dying in the streets in their hundreds of thousands with coat hangers hanging out of their privates.
As I should not even have to say, this is a complete, utter, total, diabolical lie. The abortion industry’s own data shows that the number of abortions prior to Roe v. Wade was orders of magnitude less than it was after abortion was made legal. And the best studies show that the numbers of women who suffered serious complications from so-called “back alley” abortions (usually performed in a local doctor’s office with a wink and a nod) in the late 60s was in the hundreds, not hundreds of thousands or millions. In point of fact, more women today are probably sterilized, bleed to death, suffer perforations of the uterus, or other problems in greater numbers when abortion is “safe, legal, and rare” than they did prior to its legalization.
Abortion rates skyrocketed incredibly after legalization, as, duh, both abortion advocates and common sense says they would. In 1972, there weren’t 50,000 abortions performed in this country, but in 1975 there were 1.3 million.
I hate abortion.
I’m glad Lila Rose does a good job rebutting these lies below.
This is one of many issues that come down to Grace. Those so cut off from God and inured in sin that they can’t even respond to the natural law will simply not be converted on reason. They are beyond human reach. All we can do is pray for them, but boy is it frustrating to see them spin their web of lies.
