Milo on Abortion – UPDATED February 1, 2017Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, Basics, contraception, error, General Catholic, horror, It's all about the $$$, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, Society.
UPDATE: I added some material below, because there is one thing I forgot about the excerpts below from when I watched them last night. Milo does seriously err, or misrepresent – innocently, I think – the beliefs of two great Doctors of the Church on a matter of great moral import. I’ve made that clear below.
He speaks with the usual reserve and delicate concern for other’s feelings you’ve come to expect.
I know Milo is not everyone’s cup of tea. He’s not always my cup of tea. But he lays truth on a group of California college students harder and faster than the Keystone XL pipeline will be laid now that Obama is gone.
Three good videos below, all excerpts of the talk he gave at Cal Poly (the full talk is here, and much of it is dedicated to condemning the evil of abortion). Those in attendance, primarily students, seemed a bit stunned by the extremely strong condemnations of abortion Milo made. While he has mentioned abortion in previous talks during his college tour, he has not focused an entire hour long presentation on that incredibly important subject. Usually his material is lighter and mixed with more humor, but he was more serious than usual as he should be on this grave matter, and good for him. He also reveals his Catholicism (which appears real, if more than a little problematic if he is being honest about his peccadilloes) in good detail, quoting Doctors (though badly and erroneously – he claims Aquinas and Augustine thought prostitution should be legal, I know Aquinas did not, this is a serious misrepresentation of what Aquinas said) and beginning to form a cohesive framework of Catholic thought. He still has a long way to go, though, and I’m afraid his study of the Doctors – as laudable as that is – comes from second or third sources, people who are “interpreting” the Doctors’ words in pursuit of some agenda, or otherwise misrepresenting them.
I think he deserves a lot of prayers. There is obvious talent and potential here. I still think he oversells his sexual inclinations as a sort of shield against leftist abuse, but perhaps he may be moving towards a celibate existence, if not already there.
Anyhoo, I like Gavin McInnes more and more, but this material was just too spot on for this blog to ignore (CONTENT WARNING: MILO DOES STILL HAVE A BIT OF A POTTY MOUTH AND HE IS DISCUSSING GROWN-UP SUBJECTS. ALSO IF HE MAKES YOU UNCOMFORTABLE SIMPLY FOR WHAT HE IS JUST MOVE ALONG):
Dang right on the next one. I’ll go one further, rampant fornication makes women miserable, crazy, an extreme risk of divorce and yes widely depressed and possibly suicidal. It also puts men at risk of becoming soft and effeminate, flippant, inconstant, lazy, and often poor material for marriage:
And, of course, Margaret Sanger, foundress of that lodestar, that irredeemable symbol, of the cultural left in America, Planned Barrenhood, was a thoroughgoing and hateful racist who wanted to kill almost all black, brown, and poor white babies in her drive to make the world “safe” for bourgeois upper-crust white women:
Margaret Sanger is alive and well today in the social justice warriors, so-called “antifas,” and other core elements of the leftist radical fringe. The same desires she had burn in their souls – to rid the world of anyone who doesn’t think like they do, while reducing everyone else (those in the middle, or unpolitical, or uninformed, etc) to a kind of cloying paternalist sub-human standard.
But Milo you must go two steps further, condemning not just abortion but also contraception and fornication, which create the conditions for mass abortion on demand. Being opposed to abortion without opposing the evils that give rise to it is a bit like the Dutch boy with his finger in the dyke.
