Military OKs marching in “gay pride” parade in uniform July 20, 2012

Wow, from a “ban” on homosexuals in the military to preferential treatment in a year – being a favored class certainly has its benefits!  Normally, US military are barred from marching in parades without the explicit consent of their commanding officers, but now a blanket waver has been given for gay pride parades:

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) – About 200 active-duty troops participated in last year’s San Diego gay pride parade, but they wore T-shirts with their branch’s name, not military dress.

This year for the first time ever, U.S. service members will be able to march in a gay pride event decked out in uniform.

In a memorandum sent to all its branches, the Defense Department said it was making the allowance for the San Diego parade on Saturday – even though its policy generally bars troops from marching in uniform in parades………

…….Thursday’s move came only weeks after the Pentagon joined the rest of the U.S. government for the first time in marking June as gay pride month and made an official salute to gay and lesbian service members.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta vowed in a video message to remove as many barriers as possible to making the military a model of equal opportunity and said gays and lesbians can be proud in uniform with the repeal last year of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law.

……..Uniformed soldiers in those countries [Britain, Canada] have marched down the streets of Toronto and London next to scantily clad men, drag queens and civil rights activists……….

I’m certain nothing makes true heroes like Nimitz, Chink Lee, Jack Broughton, Leo Thorsness, Bud Anderson, Marion Carl, Pete Knight, and a million others prouder than knowing that US military members can wear the uniform they swore never to dishonor next to a  drag queen in a parade.  And not only drag queens, but the scenes of sexual depravity and general moral debauchery that are part and parcel of gay  “pride” (if they have such “pride,” why do they so despoil themselves in public?) parades.

I can only shake my head.  So, an airman would have to get special permission to wear his uniform in a Memorial Day parade, but has blanket permission to wear his uniform at this disaster?  Isn’t that what preferential treatment looks like?  Isn’t that the ultimate goal here, with so many things this tiny minority is trying to foist on our weak, sin-addled culture?  Why not destroy marriage, the most timeless, central institution of human existence?  1.5% of the population demands their “rights!”

Good Lord.  Have mercy on us.

Voris blasts mainstream Catholic media July 20, 2012

Is there a crisis in the Church?  Are we in a “new springtime,” or in the depths of one of the coldest, most miserable winters of mass apostasy and collapsed faith the Church has ever seen?  What does the evidence say?  By almost any objective measure, the answer is the latter.

How do we, as laity, respond to this crisis?  Yes, we must pray, we must get more involved in the Faith, we must transmit the Faith to our families as fully and capably as we can, trusting in Grace to make this transmission efficacious, but we also must start to demand changes in the Church.  Pick a subject – liturgy, catechesis, morality, Church-state relations, there is so much work to be done in every area it is incredible.  We must work tirelessly ourselves to improve OUR practice of the Faith, but we must also demand better of others, including those who are our superiors in the Faith – clergy, bishops, etc.

Michael Voris has had enough of the collapse, and fights every day against it, to a degree I find inspiring.  But he’s had more than enough of the status quo:

It’s the ‘professional Catholic’ crowd he refers to.  Chancery officials, parish staff, certain media figures, sadly many clergy and bishops, all of whom have a vested interest in the boat not being rocked and who find it much easier to go along and get along rather than radically improve the practice of the Faith.  Many of these professional Catholics, especially in the media world, old and new, know in great detail many specific examples of problems in the Church, but they choose to look the other way and keep their cozy relationship with Bishop X or Abbot Y, rather than call them to account for their persecution of tradition, their tolerance of heresy, or their lax attitude towards liturgical abuse.

The Church is in a crisis rare in its history.  Perhaps there were problems this great during the depths of the protestant revolt or during the Arian heresy, but what a terrible comparison to have to make!  We don’t need “go along to get along” types now.  We need people who will fight, struggle, and suffer for the glory of God’s Name and the restoration of His Holy Church!  We don’t need media accomplices who will blithely look the other way when they see heretics appointed to influential positions in chanceries, or USCCB staffers who push false beliefs as truth or work to further their “progressive” agenda, or any of a thousand other things that occur every day in the life of the Church because people who should know better and could work to stop such things refuse to do so.  It is a scandal of mammoth proportions.

Pray for our Church!  Pray for faithful souls who will work to right the great Barque of Peter and put it back on course!  Pray to be a saints, for saints is what we need right now. Saints like Catherine of Siena, who was always willing to tell the Truth and challenge heteropraxis and heresy wherever she found it, no matter who it offended!  Pray for the conversion of “professional Catholics!”

Pray!

He’s an inspiration.  Who has been the one opening all those doors for Obama?  Did they just open by themselves – were they all built into the “system” in such a way that when he approached, they just flew open?

Will we ever find out the truth about this man and his past?

That was better investigative reporting than anything I’ve seen the former news media, now partisan propagandists, have done in years, a decade or more, perhaps.

Has all this been worked out somewhere, well in advance?  I’ve never been a conspiracy theorist of that type, but it would certainly be convenient to think so.
