Cupich jumps shark, equates Planned Butcherhood slaughter with “racism”, joblessness August 7, 2015

Yes, yes, that’s a fabulous seamless garment you’re spinning there.  This guy is wasting no time establishing his modernist and moral relativst bona fides:

While commerce in the remains of defenseless children is particularly repulsive, we should be no less appalled by the indifference toward the thousands of people who die daily for lack of decent medical care; [In this country?!?  While a leftist shibboleth, it is also totally false. First of all, only ~7000 Americans die on any given day, anyways. And no one is turned away from most hospitals/emergency rooms for lack on insurance/means of payment.  Total BS]  who are denied rights by a broken immigration system and by racism; [OK, we know he’s talking about this country now] who suffer in hunger, joblessness and want; who pay the price of violence in gun-saturated neighborhoods; or who are executed by the state in the name of justice.

He just equivocated between Planned Barrenhood deliberately murdering hundreds of thousands of babies per year, and then selling their body parts for profit, and:

  • [leftist delusions regarding] lack of availability of health insurance
  • immigration law
  • hunger, which in this country is not so much of a problem, given that the #1 public health threat to the poorest Americans is obesity, not hunger
  • unemployment
  • generic “want”
  • [leftist delusions regarding] gun violence (the most “gun saturated” neighborhoods in the country happen to be in those cities with the most stringent gun control laws, which only have the effect of leaving law-abiding people defenseless)
  • the death penalty

Every single one of those matters is a prudential judgment, viz., how available health insurance should be, how much aid to give to the poor, what constitutes reasonable availability of firearms to citizens, etc. The death penalty is a special case, because, in spite of really bad catechesis even from some recent pontiffs, it is firmly established Catholic Doctrine that the state has the power of the sword and its right to use it is perfectly justifiable, morally.  So in this case it is Cupich who is opposing Church Doctrine by trying to portray the death penalty as an absolute evil on the order of abortion.

Go figure.  As I said in the previous post, we have a substantial number of bishops in this country and around the world – likely the strong majority – who have replaced Catholicism with leftism as their religion of choice.  Every single one of the items he listed above is a sacred shibboleth of the sexular pagan left, whereas I strongly suspect Cupich’s “revulsion” to the genocide of millions of perfectly innocent infants a year is much more pro forma that it is passionate.  In fact, we know it is, given the things he apparently feels are morally equivalent – we should be no less appalled by an unemployment rate of 8% than the murder, dismemberment, and deliberate sale for profit of hundreds of thousands of innocent babies a year?  We should be “no less appalled” by a man who admitted to killing and raping multiple individuals, who actively requested death by the state, than the wholesale slaughter of a billion lives around the world in the past few decades?  Yes these things can be evils, depending on the context and the extent to which Cupich’s imaginings correspond to reality, but “joblessness” is not intrinsically, always and everywhere evil.  “Want” is too generic to be described as always and everywhere evil (is it evil to “want” for a 100″ HDTV, or a new Ipad?).  Eliminating borders and encouraging, even forcing the mass immigration of millions is not always and everywhere good.  These are matters about which reasonable Catholics of good will can disagree, unlike abortion, which is evil, full stop.

For a leftist, however, abortion is a positive good, and “joblessness” is always and everywhere evil.  Availability of firearms in the hands of political adversaries is always and everywhere evil. You get the picture.

And where is the mention of the ongoing slaughter of Christians in the Mideast?  Of course, it is absent, because leftists think Christians have no business being in the Mideast.  That’s muslim territory, and muslims are a protected, revered class among leftists.  Christians, Jews, and others who insist on “invading” the land they occupied for centuries or millennia before Mohammad had his first fever dream therefore get what they deserve.

The key point to take away is……..this is not accidental.   This is not a slip.  This is who this guy really is.  He is a stolid creature of Bernadin, Mahony, Hallinan, and all the other co-religionists who preceded him.

And it is difficult for me to see him as anything but a fervent advocate of a different and implacably hostile religion.  These men insist only one religion will survive and be called “Catholic.”  They’re wrong, of course, but they may well see to it that the Church is reduced to a pathetic husk of its former self within another few decades.  Once they think they’ve reduced her permanent impotence and irrelevance, they’ll move onto other fields of conquest, and the work of rebuilding may begin (if society hasn’t completely collapsed by then).

Too harsh?  Sorry, we don’t have time to mince words and pretend these are just slightly confused men of basically good will. A reckoning is coming, and is indeed already here.  Will you stand with the false prophets of worldliness and novelty or with the Faith Christ instituted?

He speaks the same as the man who appointed him….they are one in the same. Absolutely opposed to Church teaching on the prioritizing of evils…. Some evils ARE worse than others, but they REFUSE to acknowledge that Truth. When you reject Truth, your eject HIM Who is TRUTH.

I haven’t had any doubts about the Faith since high school, when the Jesuits were busy talking about Our Lord’s Resurrection and miracles not being literal, but I’m now tempted to believe in re-incarnation, since it seems like Archbishop Cupich is really Cardinal Bernardin come back from the dead.

Cupich was always going to be a disaster. The choosing of a Bishop has long been a mess, way too many modernists. And it was Benedict who promoted Cupich from Rapid City, S.D. (where he was appointed to by JPII), to his previous gig in Spokane. So it isn’t just Francis. It is a pattern.

The sad instance of comparing murder-in-the-womb, where no rights are provided to the baby, with the death penalty, where rights are provided, goes back at least to Mario Cuomo (may he rest in peace). It is disingenuous, it muddies the waters, it is illogical.

Unemployment is not sending souls to hell by the millions as is abortion. But how many of our shepherds these days are concerned with the salvation of souls? Is that not why Our Lord died: to redeem and save us and offer us salvation? I did not see Him promising jobs or ease in the Gospel.

I like your comment “this is who he IS.” Yes, let’s stop trying to figure this poor man out, or try to figure out just who Pope Francis IS – they tell us with every utterance.

And no one is turned away from most hospitals/emergency rooms for lack on insurance/means of payment.

In fact, it is illegal to do so, and the ensuing lawsuit would cost a heck of a lot more than just treating the patient. I don’t know of any hospital, even the for profit chains, that would risk it.

Ha hah – reminds me of that picture with Russia surrounded by US military bases captioned “Why did the Russians put their country in the middle of our military bases?”

Archbishop Cupich should be kicked out of the Catholic Church. He is a Marxist activist wearing bishops clothing. He is a fraud and a disgrace to Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary. He praises active Homosexuals that are in Sodomite sexual relations gives them and Baby Killer Politicians the Holy Eucharist. This fraud is a carbon copy of Archbishops Rambert Weakland the Homosexual Marxist Archbishop that cost the Archdiocese of Milwaukee 21Million dollars. Kick this fraud out he is an evil and wicked man. Before the Archdiocese is going to pay for his dirty deeds.

I would like to think that, at least with past pontiffs, the selection of Squishops for American dioceses was based upon recommendations rather than personal knowledge of the Pope. It at least let’s me blame someone other than those Popes.

I read the Archbishop’s recent op-ed in the Tribune with interest. He rightly observes that there are strong reactions to the release of videos of Planned Parenthood physicians.

He states that this evidence“offers the opportunity to reaffirm our commitment as a nation to a consistent ethic of life.” He asks if we can use the outrage to “begin a national dialogue.”He advocates creation of a “framework”so that “[w]e then can begin to take needed actions”.

Regarding this “consistent ethic of life”…have we not already enough evidence that the practical impact is to blunt efforts at protecting the unborn, while giving aid and comfort to those who will expand the welfare state at every opportunity? Furthermore, aren’t all these other issues raised open to prudential approaches, unlike abortion?

Regarding his prescribed path forward, how is this different than being told that someone is drowning in the lake and proceeding to get on the computer to organize a swimming class?

Thankfully, resourceful people, such as those who have documented the actions of Planned Parenthood, are not waiting about for more dialogue so they can then take action.

It is now absolutely impossible for the USCCB to produce a document that can be used, misused, or construed to say that it is moral for a Catholic to vote for a Democrat, any Democrat at any level of government; unless of course AB Bern. Cupich writes it. You can now find “theologians” who decry and attack the notion that there is any “intrinsic evil” because that is the truth that is the basis for the position that it is a mortal sin for a Catholic with a well formed conscience to vote for a Democrat. And get ready, I just heard a liberal priest discussing the “synods” since the “synod Of Jerusalem” described in Acts and the “synod of Vatican II”; how “synod” and “council” are interchangeable;” and how all faithful Catholics will be called on to accept and assent to the “teachings” of the Synod this fall. Ironically, they will it appears pronounce the death of “cafeteria catholicism.” Guy McClung, San Antonio

I believe everyone is overlooking the #1 motive for the deflection from the abortion issue, that is, climate change.

Their (Francis, Cupich, et al) unshakeable belief in Climate Change and its “ultimate solution”–stemming, and ultimately reducing, the global population, permeates everything they do.

They are so deeply “possessed” and obsessed with the notion, that anything that may hinder belief in the ‘perfect’ solution of population diminishment is, consciously or not, accommodated psychologically, and a yarn is spun that dilutes, and diverts from, the actual topic at hand (here abortion, but rest assured, birth control, and of higher concern, child limits, are not far behind it.)

What is frightening, and why I do not hesitate to use the word “possessed” is they are beyond the reach of any reason. Climate change (and I’m not denying climate change, I’m just rejecting the utter obsession with it without seeking more studies and alternate methods and solutions to employ) is so entrenched that you need to see that is their fight, and fighting for the faith is secondary, at best.

One other thing to consider, if I may, is who is affected, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, the most by the population reduction schemes? Women. Be it the poisoning of their bodies, the ripping of children from womb, or control by the state in the spacing and number of children, we are obviously not of their concern–in fact, we “rabbit breeders” are part of the problem to them.

So I hope and pray Mary gives them a good Mom rant, and makes them wash their face (and especially those scales from their eyes) and go to their room to think about what they’ve done, and I hope it is soon.

Racism is a semi-Orwellian, groupthink term. The fact of the matter is that blacks in America have incarceration rates far higher than that of Whites and 90% of them vote democrat. Hispanics have the highest rate of labor participation, but overwhelmingly vote for democrats too. Meanwhile, Asian Americans are so successful that they are treated unfairly in admissions to the Ivy League. Tell me again why prejudice is not, in some cases justified?
Now for the obligatory disclaimer. I don’t deny that some racists in the last two centuries were virulent: Hitler and those who lynched blacks. Last time I checked, such people were far from political power. The real menace today on this issue are those whose low-information-voter groupthink leads them to support special privileges for minorities and oppress ‘the man’. Or, how about the members of America’s official religion, Islam? Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams are candid about the state of blacks and other minorities today and will tell you that some prejudice is justified. Or is it illegal to say that today?
