As we lamentably see in the news almost every day, the supposedly apolitical executive branches of government have become wholly politicized special interest groups who view their agenda – constant growth of budgets, personal wealth, and power – as being virtually as one with the democrat party and the establishment class of Repubniks.  This process, which has been underway since at least the early 90s, accelerated and metastasized unbelievably under Obama.

Still, a change of administration can have some impact on federal agencies, especially with the right leadership (I am not saying Sessions as AG is the right leadership).  Under Obama, massive evidence of Planned Barrenhood’s blatantly illegal murdered baby part sales operation was swept under the rug.  In fact, a deeply politicized, hopelessly immoral, and endlessly corrupt political machinery sought to persecute and even jail not Planned Barrenhood, but those who exposed their cynical greed.

Well, things may be changing, if far too little, and far too slowly.  It is reported that the FBI MAY – not is, but MAY – be investigating Planned Murderhood for illegally profiting from the sale of the children they callously murder in their hundreds of thousands every year.  Which, even if true, is really very late in the game and will probably not go anywhere, but it is perhaps a hopeful indication that the ceaseless leftist bent in the federal government may be softening a bit:

The FBI signaled this week agents may be investigating whether Planned Parenthood’s dealings in fetal tissue were legal.

Sources told The Hill the FBI has requested documents from the Senate Judiciary Committee obtained from the committee’s investigation into Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue dealings. The investigation came after the Center for Medical Progress published a series of explosive videos in 2015 revealing the abortion giant was harvesting and distributing aborted baby parts for researchers. [Yes, and numerous even more damning videos from this and other exposes put together by CMP remain unreleased, as David Daleiden and other CMP members are under indictment and gag order in the Republik of Kalifornia]

CMP alleges Planned Parenthood was illegally profiting from the exchange of limbs and organs, and the House and Senate launched investigations into the non-profit’s practice. Senate Judiciary Chair Chuck Grassley referred Planned Parenthood to the FBI at the conclusion of that investigation, saying his committee found evidence indicating the group was profiting.

Planned Parenthood told The Hill none of its affiliates have been in contact with the FBI. [so maybe this isn’t a big thing after all?  Far be it from Planned Parenthood to lie, after all]

So on a tangential note, what do you guys make of this Roy Moore imbroglio in Alabama?  It seems to me nothing but a political hit job, rather like the claims of sexual harassment leveled at Trump in October 2016, and then completely forgotten after he won?

I get why McConnell and the rest of the establishment would go after Moore: they’d much rather have a democrat than an honest to goodness conservative to deal with.  But I am pretty disappointed that even Ted Cruz, who I thought was smarter than this, is now calling for Moore to drop out of the race.

If I were Moore, I wouldn’t do it.  I’d stay in and remain 100% defiant.  We cannot let the Left start obliterating candidates simply based on outrageous, totally unsupported allegations from 40 years ago.  Plus, we’ve seen far too many political hit jobs vanish into thin air as soon as some serious investigation begins (and I understand some of the allegations have already melted, and the credibility of some accusers is already under doubt).  ‘

But I don’t know what happens if the Alabama Republican party withdraws their support.  Supposedly, the democrat becomes the automatic winner then in a two man race.

So what happens viz a viz the base and the Republican party if they manage to get him to lose, when he seemed set to win?  Breitbart would say “WAR!” but what would that entail?  How else can we tell the party to radically change course, or else?  And if they continue not to comply?  Then what?

Trump Makes Major Moral Restitution Repealing Obama Policies October 9, 2017

Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, awesomeness, contraception, fightback, General Catholic, persecution, scandals, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, thanksgiving, Victory.

President Donald Trump has reversed two immoral Obama-era policies that instituted in formal governmental practice acts hideous to Catholics and all souls striving after virtue. Both of these policies were intended to further Obama’s religion of sexular paganism at the expense of Christianity as a cultural force, and even more so at the expense of the good of millions of individual souls.

The two policies affected, both of which were ludicrously unconstitutional, were the HHS Mandate forcing Christians opposed to contraceptive use to purchase insurance coverage for its “free” provision (and even forcing celibate Catholic religious orders to do the same!), and the vast expansion of decades old civil rights provisions to include protection from bias on the basis of sex to include those suffering from mental illness and their 875 different, wholly made up “genders.”

First, on the HHS Mandate, Trump has approved broad exemptions for faith-based groups:

The Trump administration announced broad new exemptions to the Health and Human Services’ contraceptive mandate on Friday, that aim to give relief to religious nonprofits and others with deeply held religious or moral convictions regarding contraception.

A senior HHS official told reporters on Thursday that the exemptions are intended to provide full protection for those with religious beliefs and moral convictions. Religious-liberty protections are central to American values, the official explained.

The HHS official told reporters that, on issues of grave moral concern to Americans, where the issue of human life is at stake, policy needs to ensure that religious believers are not “punished” by the federal government. Such policy reflects authentic “tolerance” of divergent viewpoints, he said.

In a May 4 executive order “promoting free speech and religious liberty,” President Donald Trump promised relief from the HHS mandate to the Little Sisters of the Poor, who were present at his May announcement in the White House Rose Garden. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C., were also present for the announcement, which came during a National Day of Prayer ceremony.

“I want you to know that your long ordeal will soon be over,” Trump told the Little Sisters present at the White House. Their lawsuit against the mandate dates back to 2013.

The HHS policy announced today adds broad religious and moral exemptions to the mandate.

The HHS contraceptive mandate originated in the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which ordered that “preventive services,” be covered in health plans. In 2012, the Department of Health and Human Services mandated that cost-free coverage for contraceptives, sterilizations and abortifacient drugs be included in health plans. [In essence, imposing dogmas sacred to the sexular pagan left onto Christians who regarded such coverage as anathema, just like having to participate in a pseudo-sodo-wedding by baking someone a cake.  This was always about demonstrating religious superiority, whether the Left wants to acknowledge it or not.]

………Catholic theologians and ethicists argued in an amicus brief at the Supreme Court that the accommodation would be considered “either formal cooperation in wrongdoing, or impermissible material cooperation in serious wrongdoing, and would therefore be gravely wrongful.” [Can’t we just say sinful?]

Yes, the Trump administration – or deep state apparatchiks within the executive branch – continued enforcing Obama’s draconian interpretation of religious exemptions until the policy was formally changed.  It’s taken too long, but at last one of the most egregiously unconstitutional executive actions of the Obama administration have been repealed.  If only Republicans in Congress could get their act together and ban this Mandate, all of it, properly, legislatively, but I won’t hold my breath.

Also announced last Friday, where news coverage is the slowest, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in one of his better moments, also directed that his department will abrogate Obama’s expansion of various civil rights acts to include so-called transgenders:

In a reversal of federal policy that pleased marriage advocates and angered LGBTQI groups, the U.S. Department of Justice issued a memo interpreting the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as not intended to apply to transgenders.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote to the country’s federal prosecutors that on “all pending and future matters” the DOJ will go by what Congress originally intended and not add unforeseen deviances when enforcing laws regarding equal treatment on the basis of “sex.”

At issue is the word “sex.” A section of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 criminalized discrimination based on “sex.” Gay activists say that now includes sexual orientation and transgenderism. Strict originalists say the writers of the law clearly intended “sex” to mean male and female……..

……….Sessions went on to explain that the Obama administration overstepped its bounds in ascribing unimagined modern categories to a 52-year-old anti-discrimination law.  Specifically, the former president officially interpreted civil rights legislation to include homosexuality and transgenderism……….

[However, it’s not all good]……….The DOJ offered further assurances that it will enforce modern laws giving special protected class status to gays.

Thus giving them special protections, rights, and privileges – in essence, elevating an affinity for same-sex sodomizing to an elite class above the normal rank and file.  The Left has succeeded in doing this to most all the elements of its coalition, and this manifests in such a broad way that to hold leftist views and to subscribe to leftist philosophy is, in many ways, to have many rights and privileges denied others.  Or, probably more correctly, to not be leftist is to open oneself up for penalties, abuse, denigration, and general second-class status.  The sense that tens of millions of Americans have, that they have become hard-working stooges funding their own tormentors among the self-anointed “better” classes, was one of the largest factors driving Trump’s successful candidacy.  Since the Left will never stop itself from behaving as a new but wholly unworthy aristocracy, Trump will almost certainly have a second term if he wants one.

US House to Votes to Approve 20 Week Abortion Ban……. October 3, 2017

………and “not really conservative” Trump signals his endorsement.  But it’s all for naught, Yertle McTurtle will let it die an inglorious death in the Senate.  No chance whatsoever those great soldiers of conservatism in the Senate like McCain, McConnell, Murkowski, Collins, et. al.,   bearing the general stamp of approval of the establishment “conservative” press, would dare to attach this 20 week abortion ban to a do or die must pass bill like extending the debt ceiling or the Defense budget.

I like this statement of support the much too liberal for the neocon press Trump put out:

The United States is currently out of the mainstream in the family of nations,” the statement declares, “in which only 7 out of 198 nations allow elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.”

Such is the power of the abortion industry in this nation.  Even though most Americans, depending on how the question is put to them, favor much stricter limits on abortion, if not an outright ban, the abortion industry has one party absolutely committed to insuring abortion on demand at any time without apology and you’re paying for it, Mr. Patriarchal Taxpayer, and that party has made all the difference.  On the other side, a majority of Repubniks in national elected office only tacitly oppose abortion, at best, and probably most of those secretly support the democrat take on the matter. After all, if they didn’t, who would invite them to swanky cocktail parties and secure for them multi-million dollar sinecures with a K-Street lobbying firm?

I also like this bit of commentary from the Catholic Ed Morrisey:

That data comes from a 2014 study by the Charlotte Lozier Institute, which studied abortion practices. We are part of a dubious club of nations that includes North Korea, China, and Vietnam, as well as the Netherlands, Singapore, and … oh, Canada. That basically puts us and Canada in league with euthanasiaists and forced-aborters, not exactly dignified company for Americans and Canadians.

Getting this bill through the House might be tough. Getting it through the Senate may be impossible, at least in this session. It will be subject to a cloture vote, which means it will need 60 votes to eventually get to a floor vote on the bill itself. Even if all 52 Republicans stand firm on HR36 — and that’s questionable considering the support for Planned Parenthood from Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski during the ObamaCare repeal efforts — they’d need eight Democrats to avoid a filibuster.

I exaggerated a bit above about Collins and Murkowski (why doesn’t Palin run against her?  Is she too toxic even in Alaska?) having the endorsement of the establishment class, but I can say this with a totally straight face: neither face even a fraction of the withering criticism Trump receives almost constantly from the establishment Repubniks in the conservativish press. It is amazing how butt-hurt these folks still are over the election.  Their sentiments are often indistinguishable from the (rest of the?) statist media.  Thus, the leviathan uniparty.

A 20 week abortion ban would be an eminently sensible restriction, and one that should be politically possible.  I’d be fully in favor of using the “nuclear option” to avoid cloture. But it’s not going to happen.  Sickening, given that every single day abortion persists in this nation brings down the curse and rage of God upon it.  Abortion should be made illegal again, but I don’t see that happening until there is a massive revival/restoration in the culture.

So we’re going to continue murdering 3000+ babies a day for the foreseeable future.

If the “Alt-Right” Wants to “Save the White Race,” Maybe They Should Start Having a Few Babies September 7, 2017

Lots of unsaid assumptions built into that post title – by “alt-right,” I’m referring to the media definition of the alt-right as the pseudo/neo-nazi or openly racialist portion of the far right, which isn’t even right wing, in that many are former Obama voters and Bernie supporters, most are avowed statists, and even worse, collectivists.  They simply have a nationalistic/racialist component to their statist views (as all good Nazis do), and are happy to use the state to purge society of racially/ethnically undesirable elements.  They are also the inevitable reaction to the Left’s use of race and ethnicity relentlessly as tools to gain and hold onto political and economic power.

That’s not to say concerns over immigration and the effect it is having on the political, economic, and cultural future of this nation can simply be dismissed as “racism,” as the statist media constantly tries to do.  There are many points the alt-right brings up which are entirely valid.  But racialism is always destructive, and it is very sad to see many leaders in the Church engaging in it (just practicing their preferred religion when they do).  It also undermines the overall (and entirely just and reasonable) opposition to current US immigration policy, attempts to build a wall or otherwise enforce more sensible immigration laws, in giving the media, on a silver platter, exactly the kind of racialist/white nationalist image they then turn around and tar the entire effort with.  It’s not helpful, and I increasingly wonder whether much of this former leftist “alt-right” isn’t false flag/astroturf.  I mean, who could possibly think a torchlight rally replete with racialist chants would be a good idea?

Nevertheless, Sargon has a pretty good video (language warning, however) pilloring the “alt-right” for lambasting others for not being sufficiently anti-semetic or in favor of white nationalism, while noting that the widespread sterility among white nationalist leaders and rank and file makes their claims to be so very concerned about the fate of the white race just more LARPing from the millennial crowd.  If you’re so worried about the great white ‘Murican race being swamped in a sea of brown, why don’t you settle down, get married, and have a bunch of kids?  And become Catholic, while you’re at it, very possibly saving your immortal soul:

As for me, I just want everyone to become Catholic.  Really, truly Catholic, not pseudo-, post-conciliar Catholic.  I have grave concerns over illegal immigration and extremely high immigration rates in general not out of any racial sensitivity but due to the effect it has on the poorest in our society, leaving them jobless or badly underpaid as they compete against a huge cohort existing in an underground economic status where they can be paid trifling wages that are unjust. There are also many cultural and social factors to consider in continuing mass immigration, especially considering the explosion in muslim immigration into this nation over the past 15 years or so.  I also have concerns over Hispanic Catholics coming to the US, falling into the materalist lifestyle and philosophy here, spiritually starving to death in the Novus Ordo Church, and falling away from the Faith in vast numbers.  I estimate probably 60% of the Hispanics in Irving are either fallen away Catholics or completely converted to protestant sects.

There are also extremely significant national security issues dealing with the unprotected southern border.  Build a wall – the single most cost-effective and efficient mechanism to gain control over the current chaos along the southern border – and then we can talk about sensible immigration policy going forward. But first, the crisis must be dealt with.  Unfortunately, it increasingly seems Trump will not be able to keep his primary campaign promise to build a wall.  If funding is not included in this year’s budget, I’m certain it never will be, at least with Trump as a Republican.  I tell you, I am so done with the Republican party at this point.  I am completely, totally disgusted with them.  They have done everything possible to undermine and oppose Trump at every turn.  After numerous wave elections, the revolt in 1994, the Tea Party movement, with unprecedented control of all three branches of government, all they have brought is failure and capitulation.  The Republican party is 3/4 dominated by secretly or openly leftist, and always corporatist, gadflies. I’m just about sick of the whole mess at this point.  What we have in the US at present are two left-wing parties, one far left and the other center-left.  I increasingly believe the only way forward is to break up at least one of the parties and rebuild the two party system with one or two wholly new parties with very different alignments and bases of support.  Clean out as much of the current self-serving, lobbyist-chasing, money-grubbing crowd as possible.

And on a final, but unrelated note, regarding yesterday’s post on evolution being the seed-bed for the collapse of Christianity, consider the following from another Youtube channel.  How much of what we believe is literally programmed into us through the incredibly powerful indoctrination tool most all (still, sadly) have as the centerpiece of the layout of their living rooms (and often bedrooms, and kitchen, and…….), the TV?  How much of a role has TV played in programming people to accept not just evolution, but things like pseudo-sodo-marriage, abortion, euthanasia, sexual license, et. al.,?  As Father Phil Wolfe says, the best thing you can do with your TV is take a shotgun to it:

A very important update to a previous post, the White Rose Women’s Center benefit dinner featuring Fr. Shannon Boquet of Human Life International has been moved from October 7 – where it was contemporaneous with the 100th Anniversary Fatima Conference in Irving – to November 17.

Location remains the same.  I am so glad to hear this and pray many souls will be able to attend the benefit for this most worthy organization, aiding women contemplating abortion.

Thank you to the kind soul who sent this update notice on to me.  I have idea who it was – I got it anonymously via mail – but thank you.

All other pertinent information about the benefit dinner is at my previous post.

Planned Butcherhood Comes Out with Uterus Emoji August 23, 2017

I’m so old I remember when they were called “emoticons.”  You know, the little cartoon characters people use to express sentiments they don’t bother to put into words.  Many years ago, a commenter opined that real men would never use an emoji. Chastened, I have abstained ever since.

At any rate, some pro-abort has come up with an app for an “Ooti,” a pink, vaguely uterus shaped emoji IPhone users can download for a mere $2, with all proceeds going to help keep government leech Planned Barrenhood afloat:

Invented for the iPhone, the new “Ooti the uterus” emoji app can be installed for $1.99 and comes with an assortment of smiley expressions and personas. All proceeds go to Planned Parenthood.

So just who is “Ooti the uterus”? Her website says the following:

Ooti is an expressive uterus in shades of millennial pink. You can catch Ooti drinking cold brew, wasting time on the phone, and of course, swiping……

…Ooti’s here so we can celebrate this amazing reproductive organ [which abortion, in more than a few cases, so damages as to render infertile – what a way to celebrate God’s gift of creating life!] as well as support the fantastic health services Planned Parenthood provides. [Uh huh.  Like non-existent mammograms.]

All proceeds from Ooti will be donated to Planned Parenthood so they can continue offering accessible care to those who need it………[It’s just nothing but lies from the sexular pagan Left, isn’t it?  “Affordable care,” if by care you mean murder, and by affordable, you mean taxpayer subsidized]

………..Ooti apparently got her name from “a working nickname that was being used as a shorted version of ‘uterus’: utie,”

“Unfortunately, the nickname sounded too similar to another familiar friend to women — UTIs,” says the website, explaining their decision to settle on “Ooti.” [Yes, UTIs, or urinary tract infections, which some forms of contraception can help cause, and which are also related to the modern libidinous lifestyle of far too many young women, who are literally ruining their future ability to have stable married relationships, in addition to their general mental health, through their mass embrace of promiscuity]

As noted by LifeSiteNews, Planned Parenthood “commits over 300,000 abortions annually, or more than 30 percent of all abortions in America, but performs less than two percent of cancer screenings.”

Go figure.  Put it bluntly, sans abortion, Planned Barrenhood has no reason to exist.  None.  Contraception is more available than cotton candy. Their raison d’etre is the murder of innocent children.  All the rest, especially the garbage about “accessible care,” is just a smokescreen.

10th Annual White Rose Women’s Center Fundraising Dinner Oct 7th August 22, 2017

I feel bad about the timing for St. Joseph’s Helpers, the fundraising arm of the White Rose Women’s Centers in the Dallas area.  Their 10th annual benefit dinner featuring Father Shenan Boquet of Human Life International is on the same date as the major Fatima conference featuring Cardinal Burke and a bevy of many other major draws.  White Rose does such wonderful work as a Catholic crisis pregnancy center, I pray this fundraiser is still well-attended in spite of the conflict.  One must imagine, however, that a pro-life fundraiser and the Fatima conference are going to compete in some respects for interest from the same group of faithful Catholics in the area.

Having said that, the Diocese of Dallas loves to boast of the fact that there are well over 1 million Catholics in the diocese, so surely there should be more than enough to make both events well attended. It’s just a shame two such desirable, high profile events such as this have to overlap to some extent (thinking, though, the Fatima conference will wrap up an hour or so before the White Rose dinner – that is, if you don’t go to the Cardinal Burke honorary dinner at the conclusion of the Fatima conference!).

At any rate, tix are $150 each or $1500 for a table for 10.  Most details below.  You can register here.

Recent Data Reveals Government Policy Plays Huge Role in Advance of Culture of Death August 14, 2017

I know, hardly a surprise to readers of this blog or anyone who has been paying attention over the past several decades, but good, confirmatory data nonetheless.  Something to file away in your back pocket for potential future reference.

Two different cases emerged recently (h/t reader D for both) concerning two different but vital aspects of the culture of death/sexular pagan religious rites, sexual license and the deliberate murder of the sick and the elderly.  From the UK we learn that recent curbs in government sponsored indoctrination in sexual license (aka “sex education”) have led to a massive decrease in illegitimacy in pregnancy, and from the continent the opposite, government support for euthanasia has exploded into what could very well be described as a government sponsored killing spree.

First the UK report, via good ol’ Life Site News:

A new study indicates that teen pregnancy rates drop when liberal sex-ed funding is cut, the UK’s Catholic Herald reported.

The Effect of Spending Cuts on Teen Pregnancy” analyzed data in England before and after contraceptive-based sex-ed expenditures were slashed — cuts that were criticized by liberals and praised by Christians………

……..England has been forced to make severe cuts in recent years to its budget, including tax funds for sex-ed in schools and free birth control. [What government wants more of, it subsidizes.  What it wants less of, it taxes.  Governments the world over, but especially in the former Christendom, have been extravagantly subsidizing contraception and indoctrination in the sexular pagan ethos for decades, thus encouraging more of these disastrous situations and helping to hasten the decline and seemingly inevitable coming collapse of Western civilization.  When funding is cut, wonder of wonders, one major indicator of public morals, the rate of teen illegitimacy, suddenly falls sharply.  But few if any in power will learn the proper lesson from this, they are wedded to the sexular pagan revolutionary spirit.]

The study sought to “examine the impact of reductions in local expenditure on one particular public health target: reducing rates of teen pregnancy.”

The Paton and Wright research team used statistics from 149 municipalities between 2009 and 2014 and found that after sex-ed budgets were cut, teen pregnancy rates fell by 42.6 percent. [And massively so.  I am certain there has already been launched a massive PR campaign against the authors of this study, so contrary to the false doctrines of the high priests of the sexular pagan orthodoxy/media sexual industrial complex.  Data like this must be discredited, or the entire rotten house of cards could come falling down.]

The researchers discovered that taking away tax funding for contraceptive-focused sex education in schools actually reduced teen pregnancy. [So liberals have argued that “abstinency only” programs don’t work, and can cite a number of studies in support of their claim.  Perhaps.  Or perhaps “abstinence” taught in a framework of still immersing children in filth, ripping away their innocence and constantly extolling the unheard of joys of sex (which “joys” many kids find to be less wondrous in actual experience) – that is, indoctrinating them in a libertine sexual ideology – is simply asking too much?  Preaching abstinence to kids you’ve deliberately invoked to a sexual fury is a pretty thin screen to stand against such pressures. Perhaps abstinence works best when children are preserved in their innocence, not exposed to all manner of filth (which process starts at home), and taught that relations between a man and a woman are sacred, require tremendous intimacy, and are always oriented towards the procreation of children within the glorious God-given structure of Holy Matrimony].

So, some happy news for a change.  On the contrary, the cult of government-supported, even -ordered, murder of the sick and aged continues to grow at an alarming rate:

About 1 in 30 people in the Netherlands (3.3%) now choose to die through euthanasia. The rate has roughly tripled since 2002, when euthanasia was legalised. The other report came from Flanders, the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium, where euthanasia also became legal in 2002. Between 2007 and 2013, the prevalence of euthanasia there has risen from 1.9% to 4.6% of all deaths – nearly 1 in every 20 deaths. The Flemish authors attempt to explain this enormous change in social mores. First, they argue that “values of autonomy and self-determination” have become more important for the Flemish. And public approval of euthanasia continues to rise, perhaps with the help of very positive reporting in the media……..

………As one Dutch ethics professor has said, ‘The risk now is that people no longer search for a way to endure their suffering.’ In other words, are the Netherlands and Belgium turning to physicians to solve with euthanasia what are essentially psychosocial issues?

Indeed, the article notes that half of all Dutchmen seeking government-sponsored and -funded suicide list loneliness as a significant factor contributing to their desire to die.  I wonder how many of these aged Dutch are childless or have no grandkids to enliven their old age?

As I noted above, government is creating more demand for euthanasia by subsidizing it.  An eager media seems happy to see thousands of people a year killed with government approval.  And governments in nations with taxpayer funded single payer health insurance schemes have a positive incentive to see old and sick people die as quickly and efficiently as possible – to reduce costs on the system and reserve more funding for the bureaucrats.

Brave New World, indeed.  Huxley meant it as a warning, but more and more the cultural movers and shakers seem to view it as a blueprint to their eternal socialist paradise hell.  In Brave New World, no one got sick, but everyone was killed at 60.  Except the World Leader, of course.  He got to live as long as he wanted or could.

Funny how it’s generally us plebes who wind up bearing the burdens and consequences of the policies our “betters” have determined to inflict on us.

Abortion Is Not a Kind of Martyrdom, Nor Is It a Sacrament August 14, 2017

Another good contribution from Fr. Albert OP and The Fatima Center.  I know some people struggle with this one, including many well meaning pro-lifers – they don’t want to believe God could be so “cruel” as to deny Heaven to a perfect innocent who is murdered in abortion. But this sentiment has many problems, and reveals an ignorance, which while I am certain is entirely innocent, is potentially quite monstrous, or at least severely disordered.

All souls, regardless of any actual sin, stand condemned under Original Sin.  Christ’s Sacrifice effaces the punishment due to Original Sin IF we receive Baptism.  There is no approved way to baptize souls in the womb.  Thus those souls cannot be saved.  Now, God, while infinitely just, is also infinitely merciful, so it is believed He does not condemn souls innocent of actual sin to eternal punishment.  But neither can these souls, still stained by Original Sin, exist in His perfect Presence.  Thus, they go to Limbo, a state of natural happiness but outside the Beatific Vision of God in Heaven.

To cling to the idea that the souls of aborted infants are somehow saved is, in a sense, to either endorse the notion that they are martyrs, and thus receive a Baptism by Blood, or that, monstrously, that abortion somehow constitutes a Sacrament that conveys supernatural Grace and thus allows the soul entrance to Heaven.  Obviously the latter is out, but even the idea that these souls are martyrs is not supported by the Tradition.  To be a martyr one must desire union with Christ, explicitly at least on some level, which is something still-natal infants are incapable of.  Pope Sixtus V regarded the inability of aborted souls to be saved the most heinous aspect of abortion.

However the doctrine of Limbo has never been so specifically defined that it rises to the level of a Dogma.  At least, I am unaware of such a definition, though fully willing to accept such.  If I am correct, there is room for souls to disagree on this matter, though I would regard any opinion that attempts to confer “salvation” on the souls of the aborted as disordered, at best (though surely coming from the best of intentions), not least because of the impact such beliefs have on the mothers considering abortion, where a sense of assurance that their babies will be happy forever in Heaven with God and spared the sufferings of this life serve as a positive inducement to abort, and often amount to a source of infinite impediment to acknowledging the intrinsic evil of this barbaric act.

I’ve covered this matter before but it usually excites some contrary opinions so here is one more explanation:

On a related note, Google and Facebook continue to reveal themselves as thoroughgoing partisans of the culture of death and persecutors of conservatives generally and Christians specifically.  Google and Facebook are funding an effort to stage large protests outside Atlanta-area crisis pregnancy centers, in the hope of having laws passed that force the CPCs to very publicly declare they don’t perform abortions, or at least ruining their reputations.  The ultimate goal is the destruction of CPCs as alternatives to baby murder and as “competition” to the practical baby murder monopoly in the US, Planned Barrenhood.

Google and Facebook are giving thoughtful citizens, and especially Christians, ample reasons to fear and loathe these prying vast repositories of personal data and growing vehicles of politically-motivated repression.  Time to ditch smart phones, especially Android and all the Google apps?  Time to delete the Facebook account, no matter how “useful” it is?
