More signs of post-Christianism – another black mass planned, this one in OKC July 2, 2014

Black masses have been around for centuries.  Fallen man always strives to find new ways to hate his Creator, Lord, and Savior.  We’re sick.  But we haven’t seen such open promotion of what has always been a horribly offensive act until now.  There was the possible black mass in Cambridge, Mass, a few months ago, and now another.  This time, apparently, in Oklahoma City, of all places:

 A ticketed “Black Mass” is slated to occur Sept. 21 at the Oklahoma City Civic Center, according to the Civic Center website.

Today, Archbishop Paul Coakley expressed his astonishment and disappointment at this event and called on community leaders to reconsider whether it is an appropriate use of public space.

“For more than 1 billion Catholics worldwide and more than 200,000 Catholics in Oklahoma, the Mass is the most sacred of religious rituals,” the archbishop said. “It is the center of Catholic worship and celebrates Jesus Christ’s redemption of the world by his death and resurrection. In particular, the Eucharist – which we believe to be the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ – is the source and summit of our faith. [sic……I’d prefer Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ – the Source and Summit.  The Church did actually put down several major heresies that tried to reduce or eliminate Christ’s Divinity, a tendency we see rampant today.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s wonderful to see a bishop use these terms, and this is a quibbling thing, but hey, I’m a quibbler.]

“That’s why we’re astonished and grieved that the Civic Center would promote as entertainment and sell tickets for an event that is very transparently a blasphemous mockery of the Mass,” he continued. “The ‘Black Mass’ that is scheduled for the Civic Center in September is a satanic inversion and distortion of the most sacred beliefs not only of Catholics, but of all Christians. [It’s just about the most blasphemous thing imaginable]

“In a spirit of hope, I ask those who are allowing this event to reconsider whether this is an appropriate use of public space. We trust that community leaders – and, in particular, the board members of the Oklahoma City Civic Center – do not actually wish to enable or encourage such a flagrantly inflammatory event and can surely remedy this situation.

“If the event does move forward, we will have to consider other peaceful, prayerful and respectful options to demonstrate our opposition to this publicly supported sacrilegious act. [Rioting seems to work well for the muslims.]

“In the meantime, I call on all Catholics in central and western Oklahoma – as well as all men and women of good will – to pray for a renewed sense of the sacred and, in particular, to pray that the Lord might change the hearts and minds of the organizers of this event.”

What I mean by post-Christian is this: there is no way satanists could have rented a public facility to host such an event 60 or 100 years ago.  It would not have been tolerated.  The civil authorities would not have dared, and most of them were Christian/Catholic themselves.  The few satanists that existed then had to literally skulk around in the dark to perform their perverse acts of God-hatred.

We’re not talking about Boston. This is Oklahoma City.  Oklahoma is one of the most consistently, profoundly conservative states in the nation.  That such would occur there – that civil authorities would see no problem with hosting such a barbaric, blasphemous act (and again, do they have any real idea of what a true black mass really entails?  Do they want a ritual rape of a baptized virgin taking place at their civic center?) – is simply staggering.

Crazy can obviously occur anywhere. This group that wants a black mass has petitioned to have a statue of satan installed at the Oklahoma capitol in response to the Ten Commandments displayed there.  The organizer and leader of this satanist group is a registered sex offender.  It is beyond nuts that this travesty was approved.  It shows at the very least a huge callousness towards the Faith, if not a growing, open hostility towards it.

I’d prefer ” which IS the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity…” Because It IS…. Regardless of whether or not we BELIEVE It to be….

I too would have liked to see a full-bore, sonorous condemnation. Isn’t that supposed to be in the manual bishops get upon their consecration? I emailed the civic center and actually got a response, which I figure is terrible news. I was really hoping they would be snowed under by protests.
