14 y/o talk show host – Obama leading kids to be gay June 6, 2012

A 14 y/o with what appears to be an internet talk radio show (hold that thought – here in a month or two I’d love to be doing the same thing) and what I am guessing is an evangelical protestant faith points out some of the many portions of Scripture that denounce the debauchery of homosexual acts and the disorder of the homosexual inclination.  He mentions two from Romans, you can also include Corinthians, Leviticus, and Genesis, among others – over a dozen, all told.

He states his experience, that in middle school and high school formerly straight or just regular students determined they were gay.  I don’t know how much influence Obama has, but I know that the culture has a huge influence on this.  Kids that might have had some question regarding sexuality, or may be late developing into normative sexuality, are being actively encouraged by schools, the media, sometimes their friends, and certainly the gay lobby, to “experiment” or follow the path of what is really self-degradation and destruction. 

There is evidence – of varying degrees – that there are gay predators who look for certain types of targets to convert, or at least attract to their lifestyle.  The entire priest abuse scandal in this country and most others was built around essentially this phenomenon – gay male priests seeking adolescent objects of lust.  Unfortunately, this kid has a lonely fight ahead of him.  The vast majority of kids his age have been propagandized thoroughly and effectively to the extent that they completely accept that homosexuality is normal, natural, healthy, and even holy. 

May God have mercy on all of us.

Oh, on a related issue: Judy Brown notes that only the bishops can reverse the widespread rejection of the Church’s Doctrine on contraception in this country.  Only they can catechize, and insist others do so, as well, on this issue.  It is the failure of the bishops to do so – starting with the very highest bishop in 1970 – that has led to this mass apostasy.  It’s all related – contraception leads to deformation of marriage and the sex act which leads to adultery/porn and then divorce which further undermines marriage making whole generations who don’t know what marriage is and means – and, voila!, 40 years later, you have a large minority of people who see nothing wrong in perversion and who favor the radical redefinition of (in reality, destruction of) marriage.

You, too, can die on Mars! June 6, 2012

No, that’s really the plan.  A one way journey to Mars without the possibility of return.  By a private company.  They appear to plan to use modified Dragon spacecraft from Space X.  Would a trip to Mars be worth it to you, even if you knew you’d never see earth again?

If these guys can even lift their satellite to Mars, I’ll be astounded.  The very cheapest a mission to Mars might cost is about $300 million.  Andy they’ll need a dozen or more missions just to get started, plus hardware design and fabrication and all the rest.  I would guess $12 billion, minimum, just to lift the hardware there.  Then there is constant resupply, on which lives depend, at the expense of probably another $0.6 – 1 billion a year. 

Anyway, just kind a silly thing for Wednesday afternoon.  Reading through the website, these guys sound like enthusiastic, but very unprepared, amateurs.

American Psychological Association controlled by gay rights movement June 6, 2012

This is getting big coverage elsewhere, but since the American Psychological Association(APA) are, for some completely baffling reason, taken seriously and have great influence, I thought I’d note, too, the fact that a former head of the APA complains that the organization is dominated by ultraliberals and controlled by the radical gay lobby:

A former president of the American Psychological Association (APA), who also introduced the motion to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness in 1975, [I think this statement was included to establish that he is not a “homophobe”] says that the APA has been taken over by “ultraliberals” beholden to the “gay rights movement,” who refuse to allow an open debate on reparative therapy for homosexuality.

Dr. Nicholas Cummings was President of the APA from 1979 to 1980, and also served as a member of the organization’s Council of Representatives. He served for years as Chief of Mental Health with the Kaiser-Permanente Health Maintenance Organization, and is the author of the book “Destructive Trends in Mental Health: The Well-Intentioned Path to Harm.”…..

…..The APA “started changing pretty drastically by the late 1980s,” said Cummings.  “By the mid 1990s, the Leona Tyler principle was absolutely forgotten, that political stances seemed to override any scientific results. Cherry-picking results became the mode. The gay rights movement sort of captured the APA.”

Cummings says that the movement for “diversity” in the APA, which he endorsed, had resulted in a lack of diversity regarding heterosexuals.

“If I had to choose now, I would see a need to form an organization that would recruit straight white males, which are underrepresented today in the APA,” he said.

Cummings says that he personally is not in opposition to the homosexual movement, including gay “marriage,” pointing out that he was the author of the motion to strike homosexuality from the APA’s list of mental illnesses. [First, do no harm……..]  However, he is distressed at the loss of scientific objectivity at the organization

Such a loss was more or less guaranteed, when the psychiatrists and, later, the psychologists, determined, arbitrarily (without supporting data) that homosexuality was perfectly normal behavior that was fundamentally rooted in the psyche.  Of course, addiction is, too, but addicts haven’t formed a powerful, well-funded lobby to coerce organizations into trying to normalize us. Yet.  But we will, soon……..and then you’ll have to pay for my heroin and I can marry a bathtub full of Vicodin!  Ha ha ha haa ha haa haaaa!

What do you make of this picture? June 6, 2012

In a post over at Catholic Vote, a denizen of Franciscan University of Steubenville (an Emily Stimpson) made a presentation on sin.  In that presentation, she used the photo below as a representative of angry, uncharitable Christians who are, in her words, “prudish, judgmental, a pedantic bore, utterly untouched by grace”

What do you think of that?  Now, I have no idea who these guys are or what they represent. I have no idea what they believe.  But looking at the signs from a Catholic viewpoint, I have a hard time accepting Ms. Stimpson’s description as either charitable or even reasonable.  Unless, of course, one is speaking with the mind and ethos of the world.  The statement “God commands everyone to repent” is fundamental Catholic Dogma.  It is a statement made by St. John the Baptist and by our Blessed Savior Himself.  I don’t see the problem with that.

I think it’s the other statement that bothers Ms. Stimpson (merely my supposition).  “Most people end up in hell when they die.”  Is this statement unreasonable?  To a fan of Hans Urs von Balthasar, probably so.  But from the standpoint of the Catholic Faith and Tradition (and again, I have no idea if these guys are Catholic – probably not), such a statement is not unreasonable.  Our Lord and Savior Himself states in all the Gospels that the way to salvation is narrow and rocky, and few there are that enter by the narrow gate.  Wide is the road to destruction, etc.  And we have much from the Tradition to confirm this, from private revelations given at Fatima and other apparitions to the declarations of Saints like St. Teresa of Avila (who feared that only a bare handful would be saved) to the exegesis on Scripture from such giants as St. Augustine and St. Alphonsus de Ligouri – both Doctors of the Faith. 

So while such a sign may not be to Ms. Stimpson’s liking, it is hardly detached from what the Church believes. It seems a mighty stretch to claim, based on nothing but this photo, that the men involved are “prudish, judgmental, utterly untouched by Grace.”  Is it judgmental to remind people that they need to repent, especially in this culture when even most Catholics are steeped in lifelong, unrepentant sin? 

Another question might be – is such a bold declaration appropriate in today’s cultural environment?  Could it not be counterproductive to be so strident?  I don’t know.  I’m certain many people when confronted with such a sign would be dismissive, while others, like Ms. Stimpson, would be offended.  But who knows whether such signs might reach a soul lost in sin and bring them to repentance?  A particular soul could be struggling mightily with temptation or sin and strengthened or returned to an active practice of the Faith by such a hard-hitting reminder.

In this rather odd post, which used photos to tell much of her point, Ms. Stimpson directly compared these men above to this photo:

And says this: “It’s entirely possible that God has taken that poor man’s soul—a soul perhaps wounded by a life of sin when he was young or a childhood of neglect and abuse—and already worked a minor miracle within it. The major miracle will come too…in time”  The above confirms she’s referring to the man in front.  But is it right to claim that someone pointing out the profound possibility that most people go to hell when they die is such a pedantic bore utterly untouched by Grace?  Is that a charitable assumption to make?  He might be all the above and more.  But I don’t think it’s the man she’s really upset about – she’s upset about the statement.  Because some people, even nominally faithful Catholics, just cannot and will not believe that the vision of God they hold could condemn a soul to eternal hellfire, and absolutely not “most people.”  Which is, I repeat, counter to both Scripture and Tradition.

Perhaps those guys are terrible, hypocritical sinners with judgmental hearts made of stone.  But we don’t really know that, or their motivations, do we?  Many people in this culture feel that someone standing outside an abortion mill with a sign that says “Abortion is murder” or “Abortion hurts women” is sick, judgmental, and “utterly untouched by Grace,” too.  I do not know whether Ms. Stimpson would agree with such aggrieved souls, or not.  I am also reminded of how people persecuted the Tradition, Family, and Property guys for claiming what everyone knew to be true just a few short years ago – that marriage is the joining of a man and woman into one flesh. I’m sure many passersby, utterly lost in the culture, felt those guys were crazy and judgmental.

And just to reveal where I am coming from, I have a long term project, if I get the time, to stand outside strip clubs at night with a sign that says “Go home to your wives” or “Stop committing adultery in your heart,” or something like that.  Because I, too, am “prudish, judgmental, a pedantic bore utterly untouched by Grace.”

That’s today, Wednesday, June 6 2012.   I can state with evidentiary certainty that this Novena is extremely efficacious.  You can get all the below, plus a Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and indulgenced prayers here at Daily Catholic.

O, Jesus, Who hast said: “Ask, and you shall receive; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you.” Behold, I knock, I seek, and I ask that my prayer be granted (mention your petition).

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I put my trust in Thee.

   O, Jesus, Who hast said: “All that you ask of the Father in My Name, He will grant you.” Behold, in Thy Name, I ask the Father that my prayer be granted (mention your petition).

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I put my trust in Thee.

O, Jesus, Who hast said: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Word shall not pass away.” Behold, I, encouraged by Thy infallible words, ask that my prayers be granted (mention your petition again).

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I put my trust in Thee.

O, Sacred Heart of Jesus, to Whom one thing alone is impossible, namely, not to have compassion on those who are afflicted. Have pity on us poor, miserable sinners, and grant us the grace which we ask of Thee through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Thine and our tender Mother.

Hail, Holy Queen.

St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.

We must make Communions of reparation for those who receive the Blessed Sacrament unworthily June 6, 2012

Some notes I took from a sermon given by a certain priest who resides in this Diocese.  I can’t say when the sermon was given:

There are alot of people in our beloved country who really hate us and our holy religion.   Our faith better have deep deep rootsIf anyone here wasn’t serious before you better get prayed up.

We have a serious obligation for the defense of the Blessed Sacrament.  We need to have reverence in the presence of and reparation to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar.  Don’t be lax, or speak casually in the presence of the Most Blessed Sacrament.  Reverence should be  at the utmost during the Consecration.  We should not move during the Consecration.  The holy angels are flat on their face, we should be motionless in the pews and praying,.

We need to make Communions of reparation for all the injuries, blasphemies, sacrileges hurled against Our Lord – not just by atheists and satanists who might steal Hosts and do horrible, evil things to Them, <shouted> but especially for all those Catholics who every Sunday go to Communion filthy with mortal sin – unrepentant – who don’t go to Confession and they come up and put our Lord into the sewer of their soul over and over and over again. <end shouting, now quietly>And we need to make reparation for that, and pray God that their priests wake up and warn them, and that they wake up.  We need to make these Communions of reparation – if we don’t, who will?

Everything in our holy religion is a means to an end.  That end is a profound relationship with the Most Holy Trinity.  A union with the living God.  A union in this life and please God forever in the next.  Our Lord is going to let us carry a heavy cross.  We have His solemn Word that if our union with Him is not profound, we will fall away.

Pray God, bless this priest and protect him, and give us more with such clarity and conviction.
