Tomorrow, July 28 2015, a nationwide series of protests will occur to express dismay at continued government funding of the murderous organization Planned Parenthood.  The DFW protest is at noon tomorrow at the Planned Barrenhood facility in Fort Worth.  All details here.  There are protest sites all around the country.

This protest is part of a broader effort by an organization calling itself “women betrayed.” Check the link to see if there is one near you. They are also encouraging all interested parties to contact demonrat congressmen to express outrage that these representatives would be the recipient of Planned Barrenhood blood money.  They have a list of all Congressmen – democrats to a man save for Susan Collins of Maine – who have received donations from Planned Barrenhood, and thus gained from the illegal sale of murdered baby parts.

Meanwhile, in a clear sign of this nation having developed, collectively, a reprobate sense, Obama is sicking the Department of Justice not on Planned Barrenhood, but on the Center for Medical Progress, the group that brought the latest revolting revelations of Banned Parenthood immoralities and misdeeds to light.  Demonrats are reacting in typical fashion, trying to project the evil they support onto actions of total innocents.  In this case, it’s shoot the messenger for holding up to the American people the brutal reality of abortion.  And that is one thing demonrats do not want discussed:

JUSTICE TO PROBE CENTER FOR MEDICAL PROGRESS — While congressional committees investigate Planned Parenthood’s practices, the Justice Department agreed to look into whether the group that released the sting videos obtained the footage legally. In response to a request by House Democrats, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Wednesday afternoon that Justice would “review all of the information and determine what the appropriate steps moving forward would be.”

Several state governments, including California, have also launched investigations of the Center for Medical Progress.

Which only gets back to Reilly’s brilliant thrust – it is the rationalization of sin that people have bought into.  Those who do grave evil but who support the rationalization can be excused, but those who point up the evil of the rationalization itself (in this case, the infinite evil of pre-born infanticide) must be excoriated.

Just the kind of environment one would expect in a post-Christian, socialist nation where the government bureaucracy mostly pursues its own ideological and material interest.  But most of us (or at least I) grew up believing America to not be that kind of place.  Much of Europe, yes, Canada, yes, the Soviet Union, certainly, but not the good ol’ USA, the “most Christian country in the world!”

I kept telling myself that for far too long.  But it is utterly untenable today.

How the Mexican bishops betrayed the Cristeros and Mexican faithful……. July 27, 2015

………with more than a little help from the USCCB predecessor organization National Catholic Welfare Conference (NCWC).

In 1928, the Cristeros controlled most of Jalisco and significant parts of four other provinces. They more or less controlled 3 provinces.  Under General Gorostieta, and in spite of US policy which armed Calles’ forces while blockading arms to the Cristeros, more and more victories were obtained.  1929 opened similarly well.

Morally, Archbishops Mora and Diaz continued to advocate that it was impossible to negotiate with leftist Masonic Church-haters who had broken every agreement they had made.  But after the death of Mora in 1928, the NCWC and the Coolidge administration put strong pressure on his successor Archbishop Ruiz to make some kind of peace.  The Mexican bishops were assured they would receive strong intervention from US ambassador Dwight Morrow and the US government generally.

However, as we shall see, treaties negotiated between Church leadership and hateful, persecuting governments are rarely worth the paper they are written on.  There is much to consider below as the Church in this country seems fated to enter into a similar period of persecution.

From this point, I will take up from No God Next Door, pp. 137 – (my emphasis and comments):

Negotiations were opened by the Rev. John J. Burke, CSP, who, according to the “The Church in Mexico,” pamphlet of his NCWC, had no official warrant from the United States administration, but merely the informal statement of President Coolidge’s pleasure, could Mr. Morrow, also informally, arrange a conference between the Mexican government and the Catholic authorities.

Father Burke held conferences with Calles on April 4 and May 17 1928, when an agreement was reached, but this was not ratified until more than a year later, June 4, 1929, when it was signed……. [follows description of the “concessions” made by the Mexican government, which were essentially none.  The only modification was to promise to only “register” priests approved by the hierarchy, a promise soon broken.]

On the strength of the good will implied in these concessions, if concessions they be, Archbishop Ruiz announced, as Apostolic Delegate, that “the Mexican clergy will resume religious services pursuant to the laws in force.”  Churches were reopened, but “in accordance with the number of priests allowed by the different state governments.”  There was further agreement that the bishops would call off the Cristero insurrection, and the government would grant complete amnesty to all the insurrectionists.

The settlement met with general distrust and gravely alarmed the League of Liberty Leaders and their most eminent supporters, lay and cleric…….

The outstanding leaders insisted that submission to the government registration of priests and limitation of their numbers m and to the exclusion of religious teachings from even their own schools, would put them in a worse position that before; and the suppression of the Cristero movement would leave Catholics defenseless against the absolute and unhindered power that this agreement was conferring on the persecutors. [And that is exactly what happened. Just as they were forcing Calles to consider making real concessions, they jumped at the first deal offered, which only regularized and institutionalized the unjust, persecutorial relationship between Church and state. Once the Cristeros were suppressed, the Catholics only bargaining chip would be gone, and there would be nothing to hinder the government. That is exactly what happened.]

No trust could be put in the alleged security for future betterment unless they themselves retained the physical power to enact it; for they were convinced that Mr. Morrow would stand with the Calles gang as he had consistently been doing, and there was no hope of United States support. The promised amnesty would be but a sentence of death for Cristero leaders, for the pledges of the Calles faction were worthless; and thus the Church they were defending, in leaving them helpless, would be doing for Calles what he and his armies had been unable to effect.

In opposing all treaties with faithless and unprincipled persecutors they were able to cite one of the negotiators in support. Bishop Diaz had made several such pronouncements in the United States, and in his final statement to the American people as executive secretary of the Mexican Hierarchy, April 7, 1927, he covers admirably the present situation……[Quote from Diaz’ statement follows]

….No settlement is possible between any right thinking people and an irresponsible tyranny.  The government of Mexico is a ruthless bloodstained tyranny against which thousands of its people are in arms; and its Constitution, which was never submitted to the people, is an instrument fashioned by a selfish oligarchy the robbery…….of their own.”  It can authorize theft or tyranny; hence there could be no settlement until that doctrine of persecution and thievery is repudiated……

…..”The Church led no armed rebellion; but it was good Catholic Doctrine as it was good American doctrine that forcible resistance to an unjust tyranny is the righteous duty of every citizen; and he was proud to say that his people in Mexico are true to the right and are justifying their faith by the blood of martyrs.”……[But the treaty was enacted nonetheless, due to concerns that the lack of regular religious life was a grave threat to the Faith of all Catholics in Mexico.  They chose to be blinded by Calles’ false rhetoric rather than continue in the path of armed resistance.  And what came of that?]  

……..No peace resulted.  Within a week President Portes Gil [a Calles puppet]  declared at a Masonic banquet that he would see to it that the Constitution and laws were entirely and strictly enforced; and that as a Mason and as President he had yielded nothing.  This was in fact true of the substance of the compact; but now he had publicly repudiated in word the good will he had expressed in signing it; and he and his fellows began at once to repudiate in deeds the amnesty he had definitely pledged.

Within a month five hundred surrendered Cristeros were shot, or murdered in their homes, their property seized, and their persecuted families left destitute; and altogether five thousand Cristeros and hundreds of priests shared the same fate. [This was written in early 1935.  The number steadily increased for some years to come.  The last Cristero is believed to have been murdered in retribution by the government in 1946]  This, with the expulsion of the episcopate and clergy and sisterhoods, leaving but some two hundred registered priests for over fifteen million people, and the stamping of the Moscow brand of atheizing communism on every school and office in the land, are now blazoned to the world the cost of compromise with irresponsible tyranny; and, therewith the lesson, that no compact of liberty is possible unless tyranny should first be uprooted………

———End Quote——–

And so the Catholic Church in Mexico languished, with barely 300 priests – including 200 “registered priests – to service that population for fifteen million for a decade or more. Almost half the states of Mexico had no priest at all. Even after President Cardenas began to back off the pressure of the persecution, onerous restrictions remained for decades.  Some of them survive to this day.  The Church did recover after a fashion from this persecution, but never fully.  It was a much weaker Church that was then rocked by the revolution which afflicted the entire Church Universal from the late 50s onwards.  And now even though Catholicism remains the default, professed religion of about 80% of Mexicans, the large majority of these are weak, superstitious, and frequently given over to all manner of dangerous and destructive practices like “santa muerte.”

This whole episode is instructive for American Catholics.  It gives a modern example of an episcopate willing, at the very least, to make disastrous decisions based on what many feel were misguided and exaggerated pastoral concerns.  At worst, it shows a hierarchy willing to do anything to cut a deal and resume at least some of their accustomed perquisites.  There is a good deal of evidence that it was the bishops who gained most from this “deal.” They were at least allowed to return to the episcopal palaces and resume their pre-persecution lifestyles, for the most part (or is that too harsh an assessment? Fr. Kenny was surprisingly critical of the hierarchy, especially given the time).

Possibly a for instance: the driving force behind the Calles deal that fatally undermined the Cristeros was Archbishop Ruiz. Upon signing the deal, he was elevated Archbishop of Mexico City and Primate of Mexico, or what was left of the Church in Mexico.

A final, brief PS to the excerpt above.  In 1933 President Cardenas – the man who ultimately relaxed the persecution – declared the following before the Masonic Anti-Clerical Convention held in Guadalajara – the heart of Catholic Mexico to this day – in 1933: “God is a myth; religion is a fable; the clergy are bureaucrats of a theological farce, and on this basis they wold operate for the emancipation of human thought.”

 

 

The goal? “If enough children are sexualized young enough, ‘gayness’ will suddenly be ‘normal,’ and the old fashioned notions about fidelity and virtue will vanish” July 27, 2015

WARNING THIS POST IS EXTREMELY EXPLICIT AND DISTURBING. I AM POSTING IT, HOWEVER, FOR THE INSIGHT IT PROVIDES TO AT LEAST SOME OF THOSE DEDICATED TO THE DESTRUCTION OF THE FAMILY AND THE CHRISTIAN ETHOS.

So said a highly influential radically perverse couple who, though married, were primarily inclined to perversion.  They also spent years sexually abusing many children, not least of which their own daughter, raped by her own father at age 5.

The daughter has written extensively on the subject of the torture she and many other children experienced at the hands of her sick parents, of their influence on the nascent sodo-rights activists of the late 60s/early 70s, and much else besides (my emphasis and comments):

What they did to me is a matter of unfortunate public record: suffice to say that both parents wanted me to be gay and were horrifed at my being female. My mother molested me from ages 3-12. The first time I remember my father doing anything especially violent to me I was five. Yes he raped me. I don’t like to think about it. If you want to know about his shenanigans with little girls, and you have a very strong stomach, you can google the Breendoggle, which was the scandal which ALMOST drummed him out of science fiction fandom. [Almost. I used to be a big fan of sci-fi when I was a kid. Then I found so many of the great luminaries were really screwed up people, and so many were militant atheists.  I tend to suspect the charges levied against Arthur C. Clarke late in life were true.]

My observation of my father and mother’s actual belief is this: since everyone is naturally gay, it is the straight establishment that makes everyone hung up and therefore limited. [This is so extreme as to be practically nonsensical. If everyone is “naturally gay,” why is the tendency observed everywhere in nature the direct opposite?  I thought we were all good Darwinians now who knew humans evolved from animals?  If so how could our behavior be the direct opposite of the overwhelming behavior of the lower animal orders?  And if we are all “naturally gay,” how did this “straight establishment” get started and come to power?  This is the kind of ludicrous, completely unproven and unprovable crazy claim that informs so much of the sexular pagan ethos. So much for being the rational thinkers they propose themselves as]  Sex early will make people willing to have sex with everyone, which will bring about the utopia while eliminating homophobia and helping people become “who they really are.” It will also destroy the hated nuclear family with its paternalism, sexism, ageism (yes, for pedophiles, that is a thing) and all other “isms.”  If enough children are sexualized young enough, gayness will suddenly be “normal” and accepted by everyone, and the old fashioned notions about fidelity will vanish.  As sex is integrated as a natural part of every single relationship, the barriers between people will vanish, and the utopia will appear, as “straight culture” goes the way of the dinosaur.  As my mother used to say: “Children are brainwashed into believing they don’t want sex.” [What a sick rationalization.  Never before has Chesterton’s aphorism been more apt.  These sick individuals, in order to justify their sin, will believe literally anything, including that little children “want sex.”  Anyone who knows the innocence of a child knows what a monstrous lie this is.]
 … I am still reeling from the death of my last bits of denial. It IS the homosexuality that is the problem. It IS the belief that all sex all the time will somehow cure problems instead of creating them that is the problem. [So what we’re looking at is a mentality that stands in radical contrast to all Judeo-Christian belief and virtually all accepted behavior around the world and seeks to replace them with a satanic hedonism that seeks children both as its prey and as its next generation.]
So I have begun to speak out against gay marriage, and in doing so, I have alienated most of even my strongest supporters. After all, they need to see my parents as wacky sex criminals, not as homosexuals following their deeply held ethical positions and trying to create a utopia according to a rather silly fantasy. They do not have the willingness to accept the possibility that homosexuality might actually have the result of destroying children and even destroying the adults who insist on remaining in its thrall. [And another soul has seen  through the fog of lies to get it.]
Now for all well-meaning people who believe I am extrapolating from my experience to the wider gay community, I would like to explain why I believe this is so: From my experience in the gay community, the values in that community are very different: the assumption is that EVERYONE is gay and closeted, and early sexual experience will prevent gay children from being closeted, and that will make everyone happy. [If not everyone, at least the vast majority are believed to be at least somewhat open to “experimenting.”  Thus in the near future I will not be surprised at all – and in fact predict – that refusal to positively respond to a perverse proposition will be taken as ipso facto evidence of “intolerance” and “bigotry.”]
If you doubt me, research “age of consent” “Twinks,” “ageism” and the writings of the NUMEROUS authors on the Left who believe that early sexuality is somehow “beneficial” for children. [No, you really don’t want to do that.  Especially “twinks.”]
 … What sets gay culture apart from straight culture is the belief that early sex is good and beneficial, and the sure knowledge (don’t think for a second that they DON’T know) that the only way to produce another homosexual is to provide a boy with sexual experiences BEFORE he can be “ruined” by attraction to a girl……. [I strongly suspect this is indeed the case.  This is the kind of thing that it has been impermissible to say for decades, and look where that’s got us.  And I am very concerned that the younger generations, even more horrifically sexualized than mine, will provide a rich hunting ground for recruits.  There is already evidence that millennials are far more open to perversion, not just theoretically, but for themselves.]
………..Already the statistics for sexual abuse of children of gays are astronomically high compared to that suffered by the children of straights. [Link is to the Regnerus study covered on this blog in 2012]

Naturally my perspective is very uncomfortable to the liberal people I was raised with: I am “allowed” to be a victim of molestation by both parents, and “allowed” to be a victim of rather hideous violence. I am, incredibly, NOT ALLOWED to blame their homosexuality for their absolute willingness to accept all sex at all times between all people[Of course.  Because nothing can be permitted to undermine the rationalization/hypnosis the vast majority of Americans have bought into today.]
As if to confirm this poor abused woman’s supposition, a supposed “anti-bullying” conference in Iowa turned into a veritable showcase of perversion as 11 year olds were exposed to strap ons, analingus, and other assorted grotesqueness:

Middle school girls from Humboldt (pop.: 4,690) had the opportunity to learn “how to sew fake testicles into their underwear in order to pass themselves off as boys.”

One speaker wore a dress made out of condoms to which could be “used as needed.” . . .

The rest of the sessions involved issues such as “how to pleasure their gay partners.”

Nate Monson, executive director of Iowa Safe Schools, said parents who worry about middle school kids hearing about anal sex with strap-ons and analingus are “disgusting.”

“It’s incredibly frustrating that adults are being the problem and being the bully,” Monson told the Des Moines NBC affiliate. “

Iowa Safe Schools is actually an organization that promotes the sodomite lifestyle.  A different conference in April caused similar scandal by being similarly explicit.  Iowa Safe Schools says that they are simply compelled to delve into these grossly perverse matters because it is the only way many “queer” teens have to “get answers.”  Oh, for crying out loud. What a transparent excuse. As if this culture – as if! – is not awash in porn and other explicit sites where this kind of topic is covered in depth to the point of nausea.  Please.
Innocence lost can never be retrieved.  It is gone forever, which is why it is such a tempting targets to souls of ill disposition.

 

While very few today want to believe it, there is great evidence there is a plan being played out, and your children and mine feature heavily in those plans.  We have seen major pro-sodomy activists proclaim that their “movement” cannot survive without the ability to indoctrinate children into their lifestyle.

Amazingly, all this used to be known.  It was simply conventional wisdom.  But after decades of sustained leftist efforts to destroy the usual means of transmission of moral knowledge, of cultural knowledge, suddenly it’s novel, even controversial, to say what pretty much everyone knew to be true 40 or 50 years ago.  All those laws against sodomy and the entire lifestyle didn’t just fall from the sky, they were put in place due to the hard lessons of experience.  That’s all been thrown away now, of course, and we are going to have to learn them all over again, to our dear, dear cost.

TV, instantaneous news transfer, abdication of duty and general moral turpitude are to blame, IMO.

Ladies, beware “natural” products containing phytoestrogen! July 27, 2015

Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, Basics, catachesis, contraception, Domestic Church, family, General Catholic, Society.

Good reader TE alerted me yesterday to an “essential oil” product from Young Living containing phytoestrogen. Phytoestrogen is essentially natural birth control.  Sold as a “beauty aid” or “support for the female glandular system,” I was advised by a local priest that phytoestrogen has strong capabilities to block conception.  doTERRA, which seems quite popular among traditional Catholic women, sells products containing the substance.  Phytoestrogen is sometimes sold alone and thus easy to identify, but it is also frequently mixed into other products.

Something else my wife has learned, however, is that phytoestrogen is found in many foods, and could play a role in women having difficulty conceiving.  In addition, there are many foods and substances that can greatly lower progesterone levels, which my wife has learned is a factor in miscarriages (you see my interest).

A partial list of foods that contain high levels of phytoestrogens below:

flax seed
soy beans
soy nuts (anything soy or flax)
tofu
tempeh
multigrain bread
hummus
garlic
parsley
apricots
sunflower seeds
chestnuts

Regarding the lowering of progesterone, caffeine/chocolate are supposed to be bad. Foods that raise estrogen should be avoided.  But there are some specific foods that are recommended to be avoided in order to avoid low progesterone levels:

Flax seed
soy
wheat
yeast
tomatoes
peppers
eggplants
potatoes

My wife has a fuller list. I will try to post that later if possible.

Some of the above is a bit speculative but high doses of phytoestrogens have been used for birth control for millennia. Estrogen is known to lower progesterone, typically.  Low progesterone is implicated by the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction in being a frequent cause of miscarriage.

I just put this out as a brief public service.  It may have no import for you at all, or it might.

Amazing the things learned, and forgotten, over time.

Support for sodo-marriage plummeting? Guess what? So is scout membership. July 27, 2015

Interesting data reported here that support for pseudo-sodo-marriage has mysteriously fallen by nearly 10% over the course of a few weeks.  That would be an extremely fast fall from its previously reported high of 60%, achieved, surprise!, immediately prior to the diabolical Supreme Court Obergefell decision.   We’ll see if this number sticks or even drops further.  If so, my surmise would be that the numbers were cooked, probably in concert with the Obama administration, to create a perception of mass support and “inevitability”  that probably has never quite existed (we’re in dire shape even if sodo-marriage “only” has 30% support, however):

First the headline you never read: “New poll shows sharp drop in support for gay marriage.”   In May, Gallup reported a record 60 percent support for “allowing gays and lesbians to legally marry.” Reuters asked almost the same question in interviews taken mostly (but not completely) after Obergefell (June 26—July 8): “Do you support or oppose allowing same-sex couples to legally marry?” Just 51 percent of Americans said yes, a drop of  9 percentage points……..

……Just 37 percent agreed that “same-sex marriage laws should be made by the Supreme Court” (which might be partly an artifact of the fact that respondents were offered three other choices (state legislatures, voter referendum, and Congress).

51 percent said they favored the Court’s decision, mirroring the split over gay marriage itself (and suggesting procedural arguments about Constitutionalism don’t carry greater weight with voters than the issue itself). But just 46 percent said they would oppose a Constitutional Amendment, again suggesting a fundamental ambivalence and discomfort remains even among some titular gay marriage supporters……

………The “consensus” on gay marriage is painfully brittle and artificial, a product of the Left’s control of the narrative more than the power of their argument.

I agree.  That’s why the sexular pagans are moving so fast to consolidate their gains.  Which, speaking of, the Boy Scouts – soon to be America’s number one source for pederasty! – are also moving very fast to implement their new policy allowing perverse scout masters.  This temporary measure will probably not last 5 years, before religious affiliation is thrown under the bus under threat of lawsuit and ALL scout groups, regardless of religious affiliation, will be forced to accept deliberately placed sodomite leaders:

The Boy Scouts of America is expected on Monday to end its blanket ban on gay leaders — a turning point for an organization that has been in turmoil over the issue.

But some scouting groups will still be able to limit leadership jobs to heterosexuals.

To gain the acquiescence of conservative religious groups that sponsor many dens and troops, like the Mormon and Roman Catholic Churches, the policy will allow church-run units to pick leaders who agree with their moral precepts.

“There are differences of opinion, and we need to be respectful of them,” said Michael Harrison, a businessman who led the Boy Scouts in Orange County, Calif., and is one of many leaders who lobbied internally for change. “It doesn’t mean the Mormons have to pick a gay scoutmaster, but please don’t tell the Unitarians they can’t.”

Already struggling to reverse a long-term decline in membership, the Boy Scouts have been increasingly consumed over the last two decades by battles over the exclusion of gay people, divisions that threatened to fracture the organization. Conservative partners saw the policy as a bulwark against unwanted social change, but the Boy Scouts’ anti-gay stance was costing it public support and cachet as well as corporate funders, and lately has brought on the threat of costly lawsuits……..

[Now keep that in mind, and read this:]……After the vote to permit gay youths in 2013, some evangelical Christian churches ended their sponsorships, and membership declined by 6 percent, compared with declines of 2 percent to 4 percent in previous years. Youth membership fell again in 2014, by 7 percent.

And with this latest change, look for that decline to explode upwards even more.

So the Scouts have traded 13% of their membership – they’ve accepted the flight of nearly 400,000 boys in less than 2 years (because the policy was changed mid-year) – for “public support and cachet,” meaning, Robert Gates and other high-flying leaders won’t have to apologize to their leftist friends anymore over their involvement in the Boy Scouts.  That, and filthy lucre.  These Scouts are as far from the ideal created by Baden-Powell as can be.

A final note: AmChurch once again covers itself in glory (not) by its stalwart adherence to principle and full-throated defense of the Faith:

But Mr. Gates appears to have persuaded major sponsors, including the Mormons and the Roman Catholics, to accept the new policy for adults so long as their own units are given latitude. In a recent statement, the Mormon Church reiterated its “right to select Scout leaders who adhere to moral and religious principles that are consistent with our doctrines and beliefs.”

In May, after Mr. Gates’s plea, Edward P. Martin, chairman of the National Catholic Committee on Scouting, said: “We agree with Mr. Gates that there is cause to act. We also agree with Mr. Gates that chartered organizations must be allowed ‘to establish leadership standards consistent with their faith.’”

Get that: Edward P. Martin, at least as quoted, proclaims that Gates was RIGHT to open up leadership positions to those publicly given over to the sin of sodomy, a sin which cries to Heaven for vengeance.  Once again, individuals in leadership positions in the American Church go to great lengths to show themselves firmly part of the world and its fallen mores, rather than stand in clear opposition to continuing moral decline and apostasy from right faith.  It is pathetic that Mormons and evangelicals advance Christian morality far better than bureaucrats in the Church Christ instituted for that very purpose. What happens to the salt when it loses its flavor?

As I said above, it will not be 5 years before this policy is changed, too, and sodo-masters are foisted upon religiously backed Scout groups, too.  What will be the response of the USCCB, and individual bishops, then?  Forgive me if I am sanguine at the prospects.

Further defections are likely, especially by Southern evangelical members, said Jay L. Lenrow, a lawyer and voluntary Scouts executive from Baltimore who, like Mr. Harrison, has long pushed for change from within.

“But I think we’ve lost far more people over the last 14 or 15 years because we were not inclusive,” said Mr. Lenrow, who served as chairman of the National Jewish Committee on Scouting, among other senior roles.

Manifestly wrong.  Sexular paganists have no interest in Scouting, save for the symbolic victory to be gained by its subversion to perversion and the mass cultural rationalization. These are the same people who have always laughed to scorn those who do goofy things like pledge oaths to uphold the family and maintain decent living.  This self-inflicted gun shot wound to the Boy Scouts is just one more step in their long march through the institutions.  The fact that the Scouts haven’t lost anyone (statistically speaking) is borne out by the rapid collapse in membership after the first policy collapse in 2013, and as I said, this latest change will almost certainly cause the decrease to explode into the double digits at least for a few years.

Prediction: twenty to thirty years from now, the Boy Scouts, shrunken to well fewer than 1 million scouts, will cease to exist under a flurry of sex abuse lawsuits and near total abandonment by corporate sponsors.  And that, dear readers, has been the goal all along.

Thanks to MFG for the link to the DMN article.

So, maybe we should pray and protest outside the Boy Scouts’ national headquarters in Irving?  It’s only about 10 min from my house.
