They hate us, they really, really hate us October 12, 2016

As if that’s a surprise.  A rash of releases of e-mails from longtime Clinton confidante John Podesta’s personal e-mail reveal the depth of the hatred in which Clintonistas hold Catholics, especially the loathed and feared “conservative Catholics” (by which they mean faithful, non-bastardized katholycs), while also revealing just how completely franked so many leftist’s understanding of the Faith is.  That last bit is hardly a surprise, leftists create an entire mental universe based on a fantastic melange of their ideology and perverse caricatures of the object loathed.  It’s one and the same, from “an amazing bastardization of the faith” below, to “promethean neo-pelagians” from other quarters.

And away we go into the depths of leftist lunacy:

Ken Auletta’s latest piece on Murdoch in the New Yorker starts off with the aside that both Murdoch and Robert Thompson, managing editor of the WSJ, are raising their kids Catholic. Friggin’ Murdoch baptized his kids in Jordan where John the Baptist baptized Jesus.

Many of the most powerful elements of the conservative movement are all Catholic (many converts) from the SC and think tanks to the media and social groups.

It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy. [As usual left-wingers have everything upside down, inside out, and back to front.  It is “Christian democracy,” by which I think we can safely assume they mean liberal khristianity, that is an “amazing bastardization” of the faith.  As I related yesterday, liberalism posits an alternate universe where religion is subordinate to so-called science (or sciencism, a form of the over-arching sexular pagan religion) and the whims of always metastasizing leftist ideology.  It’s riven with double-think and all manner of other Orwellian overtones.  But let’s move on]

…….Jennifer Palmieri then replies:

I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals. [Never even a hint that someone could actually be a convicted Catholic believing all that “bad old stuff” that they try to associate with conservatism, which is actually nothing of the sort, but simply being a faithful Catholic.]

[A final barb from another demonrat dufus]………Excellent point. They can throw around “Thomistic” thought and “subsidiarity” and sound sophisticated because no one knows what the hell they’re talking about.

Speak for yourself.  I may not be a hardcore Thomist, but I can recognize the alignment between the Summa and Catholic belief and practice going back to the earliest Church, and carrying forward till at least the early 60s as the dominant theological school of the Church, when it was supplanted by neo-modernism and leftism generally.  As for subsidiarity, it’s an amazingly simple concept, keep government at the most local/simplest level possible, demonrats simply hate it because it foils their preferred policy prescriptions.

In all this crap, they don’t err honestly, they are driven to error by their ideology.  Subsidiarity isn’t too complex, its annoying and offensive to their core (religious) beliefs.  Faithful practice of Catholicism isn’t an “amazing bastardization,” it’s a grave threat to their most cherished beliefs, and so has to be belittled and dismissed.

It’s the same as always with left-wingers, don’t conform thought to an objective standard/reality, make reality conform to preferred thought.  It’s terrifying and Orwellian as hell, but it’s also the dominant belief-set of the vast majority of the self-anointed elite in the West and around the world.

Those who care about the Faith should have worked to defeat Trump. Instead, many supported him thereby electing Hillary.

I tried. Now there is no effective choice.

John, there were not enough of us to defeat Trump. Now, our only option is to defeat Hillary. Trump is an immoral man, Hillary is evil. We can pray that Mr. Trump listens to his advisors, some of whom are strong in faith and morality. If Mrs. Clinton becomes president then the game is over. She will stack SCOTUS with like minded evil individuals. Our children and grandchildren will suffer greatly in the hands of these wicked souls.

This is absolutely unsurprising. Sadly (not strong enough of a word, but I’ve had a long day) very few progressive Catholycs in my family will see this as disdain for their religion; primarily, because they don’t really believe any of that BS, but also because they likely have some desire for a revolution in the Church away from a “medieval dictatorship” towards “Christian democracy” (which really means an obeisant, quivering body of people who rush to do the evil globalist elites’ bidding).

Even if that isn’t true, they will still vote for hillary because “Trump said mean/bad things”

Dear TB, you absolutely should be a staunch Thomist! All Catholics should! Please see the overwhelming evidence in the following website:


4. Camper - October 13, 2016

In fact, it is basically mandatory to be a staunch Thomist to be a good Catholic.

The most hilarious email was the one about their “plans” to infiltrate the Church with liberals/progressives. Obviously none of these idiots have come within ten miles of a typical NO parish in the last 50 years, and must never had heard of Francis the Humble.

I think they are about 50 years late, VII seems to have done their work for them.

As a side note, has anyone seen the Wikileaks about aliens being real and the Vatican being in on it?? Can’t make this stuff up lol

I’ve always loved the word, ‘mélange’. Thanks for using it here. I am partial to the French language even if I don’t speak it very well.

This is but an example of what I have encountered even within my own extended ‘Catholic’ family. For them and those like them, faith is usually subordinated to feelings of warmth, cuddles and comfort at the expense of truth and Catholic morality. I can appreciate where they are coming from, however. Christ calls us to a high standard and it is often difficult, sometimes painfully so, to live up to that standard and we will fall and repeatedly. However, we should not despair! Christ is our healer and gives us the sacraments we need to recover from our failings. Instead of allowing ourselves to be overcome, to give in, to tolerate the sin and perhaps even promote it as a good, we should in our humility accept that we are fallen and in dire need of our heavenly physician. It is hard to argue for this when it seems that the only true ‘sin’ for those criticizing Catholics who actually believe what Christ teaches and through his bride, the Church, is suffering. To quote the man in black, “Life is pain… Anyone who says differently is selling something.”

Thanks be to God we have an advocate who truly loves us even when are yet sinners. And when we unite our suffering to His we can bear much and even be co-redemptive!

Even though he is a flawed candidate and a sinner, God can still use sinners to further his plan. Think about David, Cyrus, St. Paul, and Constantine. One committed adultrary, one murdered St. Stephen, and two were pagan world leaders. God can bring good out of this…..many people are now praying for the first time……..
