Good Catechesis – Priest Notes that Sin of Onanism at Root of Inclination to Sodomy/Transgenderism….. January 25, 2018

………and he also notes, that this sin of onanism – which I assume all readers know means self-abuse – does not have to be a sin of the person who falls into these inclinations.  It can, in fact, be attributed to these sins in the parents, especially when combined with pornography use, which then allow the demons associated with these sins into the house, infecting even those who may not share the same sin (though, in most of these cases, they will).  In the Old Testament, God reveals that the sins of the father are visited upon the children, even down to the 4th generation.  This is actually a good reason for all Catholics, and especially converts, to know their family history.  Masonry in the US was extremely common, especially throughout the farming communities of the Midwest, 100-150 years ago.  I have several family members who were Masons, God rest their souls.  Thus it was advisable that I, as father of my family, have minor exorcism prayers said in order to break any curses that might have been brought down on our family through this Masonic involvement.  I also wonder if that Masonry is a source of the anti-Catholic animus that existed in some of my forebears, but that’s another subject.

At any rate, the sermon below is on a difficult topic, gender dysphoria, but the priest handles it with good care.  I would say it is suitable for all fathers, almost all mothers and most children, but some families with the blessing of extreme innocence and delicate consciences may want to be careful with it.  The priest notes that God made us male and female, and that this definition is made at the very core level of our beings – in our genetic codes.  You either have a Y chromosome, or you don’t.  Thus these transgender activists, pretending that gender is just an accident of socialization and can be “easily” changed with massive chemical intake, a change of dress, some makeup, and, oh yeah, permanent body mutilation, are insane.  Actually, they’re not insane, they are in thrall to a hideous, satanic ideology, an ideology that seeks endless power for itself, and ruination for souls:

Transgenders, sodomites, and all their ilk (the growing “pedophile rights” movement) all pretend that their sin is somehow unique or different.  Remember back when sodomites and their Leftist enablers told us they were born that way, and so it couldn’t be a sin?  Now they say that not just sexuality but sex itself is entirely mutable and changeable, because it is convenient for them to do so.  But as the sermon notes, it’s just another sin, and we all sin.  Everyone of us struggles with various kinds of sins, and temptation to sin.  Every single one.  I’m an addict.  There is infinitely more evidence that there is a genetic, “born that way” component to addiction than there is to sodomy or transgenderism.  In fact, the genetic or hereditary component of addiction is pretty much proven – it definitely runs in families.  That doesn’t make my sins of intoxication or compulsive sexual sins no longer sinful.  And I am not “special” because I have this inclination.  Everyone is born with a particular temperament, and particular inclinations towards sin.  Some people have greater inclinations than others.  Why? God knows, but the common view of the Saints is that God allows more suffering in those he loves most.  His Son suffered infinitely for our sins, and God is incapable of loving anyone any more than Himself in His Son.  Those tempted more are called to higher sanctity.  Some horrible sinners have become tremendous Saints.

The priest’s explanations in the sermon are full of truth and love.  It is very compassionate, but not in the modern, Francis of Rome Jesuitical sense.  Not in the Father James Martin sense.  In, you know, an actual Catholic sense.

I should add, also, that I don’t mean to imply above that if a kid falls into one of these lifestyles, it is necessarily the parent’s fault.  I have seen kids falling away from wonderful families, families who, as well as an outsider can tell, seem to do everything right.  People sin. There are myriad causes.  The point above was just to note that these particular sins are very dangerous not only for parents but for their kids as well.

Crazed Mass Murderer, One of History’s Greatest Monsters, Resigns Planned Barrenhood January 25, 2018

The rumors have been that Planned Butcherhood is about to get hit with a number of federal charges/indictments, and that some of those might name apparently departing Planned Parenthood head Cecile Richards personally.  She got out while the gettin’ was good.  Whenever one of these ambitious, wholly ideological creatures says “time with the family” or “other projects,” it means it was forced in one way or another.  These people never voluntarily step down from their positions of power and influence.  To the idea that she means to run for governor of Texas – yeah, good luck with that.

Anyway, by deliberate act, she participated in the murder of over 3.5 million babies.  That makes her one of histories greatest monsters:

The President of America’s largest abortion chain Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, plans to resign next week, according to a Buzzfeed report that cited “two sources familiar with the matter.”

A Planned Parenthood representative told Buzzfeed, “Cecile plans to discuss 2018 and the next steps for Planned Parenthood’s future at the upcoming board meeting.”

“The Planned Parenthood official did not comment on Richards’ future,” Buzzfeed reported, even though “Richards, 60, has informed at least some members of the organization’s board of directors [that she is leaving], one of the sources confirmed.”

Richards has overseen America’s largest abortion vendor since 2006. Her salary continually increased as did her tenure. She currently rakes in nearly a million dollars a year overseeing the organization that commits over 300,000 abortions annually. [$3 a head.  What a bargain.]

During the Obama era, the abortion business had an ally in the White House. However, Richards still had to contend with investigations from Live Action and the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) that revealed Planned Parenthood’s willingness to cover up child sex abuseaid-and-abet sex traffickers, and profit from selling body parts of aborted babies. [Abortionists cover up sex abuse?  How else do the abusers get rid of the evidence?  I mean, c’mon people!  This is current year!  What else are they going to do with it?!?  It’s not like selling babies into white slavery in Qatar or Brunei is easy these days!]

Since President Trump took office, Planned Parenthood has increasingly sounded the alarm about the threat he and other pro-life Republicans pose to abortion-on-demand.

“Cecile Richards was the most devoted practitioner of Planned Parenthood’s ‘out of sight, out of mind’ mantra to cover up their barbaric abortion business from the public,” David Daleiden of CMP told LifeSiteNews. “As Planned Parenthood faces federal criminal investigation from the FBI and DOJ for selling aborted baby hearts, lungs, livers, and brains, Richards’ departure shows that the old strategy is no longer working – the secret is out that Planned Parenthood is a taxpayer-sponsored crime syndicate of industrial-scale child killing, and even Cecile Richards can no longer put a friendly spin on it.” [Awesome quote]

“Cecile Richards may be stepping down because Planned Parenthood is under investigation for illegally trafficking in aborted baby body parts and other crimes,” Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, told LifeSiteNews. “She may be trying to get out before indictments drop. She is also tainted with other scandals by her close affiliation with Hillary Clinton and Fusion GPS, which are also being investigated. Planned Parenthood may now view her as a liability.”

“In any case, this news indicates a destabilized Planned Parenthood organization, and as long as they are in disarray, they can’t expand their abortion enterprise, and that is good news,” said Newman.

So for the greatest killers of the last 120 years, Cecile Richards has passed fellow leftist Pol Pot and is up there in Hitler territory.  She’s a piker compared to the greatest leftist murderers of all time, though – Stalin and his 50 million, and Mao with his 100 million plus.

It’s almost like this ideology is the literal inversion of all that is good and true and brings with it nothing but endless, hellish death.  But it’s the official ideology of probably 95% of all the college professors in this country and throughout the West.  Could a hundred thousand academics really be this wrong?

And you want to pay them $50,000 a year for the privilege of indoctrinating your children in this most beastly of ideologies?  Of course, there are ways around this, it’s not a blanket condemnation of sending any kids to any college, but it is meant to be a provocative challenge – are you really thinking about what you’re doing?  And are you doing it for them, or for yourself? I knew a family, an outwardly good, seemingly Catholic family, that refused to believe that Notre Dame University was anything but the be all and end all of Catholicism, and the absolute best place to send their kids to college after going through the incredible sacrifice of homeschooling all of them.  They had 5 kids.  They sent four of them to Notre Dame.  Every single one has fallen away from the Faith. and not in a low key, but a spectacular manner.    They’re not just cold to the Faith, they are positively hostile.  The last kid, the youngest, was lucky.  He didn’t have the grades for Notre Dame. So he’s going to a local community college, and is still Catholic.

I bring up this bit about college because Leftism is an all-pervading ideology with a thousand facets and a million ways to kill a soul.  It’s also the dominant culture in our media-numbed society.  Leftism always ends in death.  Sometimes its the death of millions of babies, other times it’s the death of faith in millions of souls, but it always brings death with it, because it’s not just a creation of fallen men, but it was contrived as a deliberate antithesis to Christianity and godliness.  It’s the tempting alternative to a moral, godly life.  It’s presented as bright and shiny, intelligent and popular, urbane and sophisticated, the default belief set for anyone who wants to be anybody in this world.

But this is what it really is:

For the squeamish, frankly, I could have shown much, much worse.  This is who Cecile Richards is, and what she promotes.  May God have mercy on her soul, and may she convert before it is too late.

The Case Can Be Made that Trump is the Most Pro-Life President Ever January 25, 2018

Even though, in the past, he has painted himself as a pro-abort at times, in terms of concrete action, has any president done as much as Donald Trump to support the pro-life cause?  Not only was he the first sitting president to directly address and, in a way, take part in the March for Life, he named Jan 22, the anniversary of the worst, most murderous, most unconstitutional and immoral Supreme Court decision ever (Roe v Wade), Sanctity of Human Life Day:

President Donald Trump proclaimed Monday, January 22, 2018, “National Sanctity of Human Life Day.” The proclamation comes on the 45th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that legalized abortion in the U.S. throughout the entire nine months of a mother’s pregnancy.

Trump made the proclamation on Friday, as hundreds of thousands of pro-life pilgrims converged upon Washington D.C. for the annual March for Life.

“Today, we focus our attention on the love and protection each person, born and unborn, deserves regardless of disability, gender, appearance, or ethnicity,” begins Trump’s proclamation.

“Reverence for every human life, one of the values for which our Founding Fathers fought, defines the character of our Nation,” Trump continued in the proclamation. “Today, it moves us to promote the health of pregnant mothers and their unborn children.”

In doing this, however, he was just continuing a practice of Republican presidents since Reagan in 1984:

President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day in 1984, making note that millions of U.S. lives lost to abortion in the 11 years since Roe v. Wade — already by then over tenfold the number of Americans lost in all our Nation’s wars” — was “a tragedy of stunning dimensions that stands in sad contrast to our belief that each life is sacred.”…….

……….It was continued every year throughout the administration of Reagan’s successor, George H.W. Bush. Bill Clinton then dropped it during his eight years as president, and George W. Bush then resumed it again for his eight years in office.

Barack Obama did not declare National Sanctity of Human Life Day during the eight years of his administration.

Go figure.

Trump’s reinstated the “Mexico City” policy, forbidding federal funding of abortion overseas.  He nominated a solidly pro-life Supreme Court Justice.  He wants to defund Planned Barrenhood, if Congress can ever pass a new budget, instead of endless continuing resolutions.  These place him as equal the better Republican presidents since Reagan.  But by attending the March for Life, did Trump – whose personal life is a catalog of immorality – catapult himself into position as the most pro-life president ever?  Could it be, that contrary to his predecessors, he is less a politician than a man of some convictions, less likely to be bent by the polling or the political winds?
