Cupich jumps shark, equates Planned Butcherhood slaughter with “racism”, joblessness August 7, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, Basics, Christendom, different religion, disaster, episcopate, General Catholic, horror, It's all about the $$$, paganism, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sickness, Society, the struggle for the Church.
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
- 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?
