Next Target for the Sexular Pagans: Your Minor Children September 20, 2017

I think anyone with a brain who was paying attention these past 10 years or so could tell that the ultimate sexual target of the sexular pagan left was children.  This religious cult is fully predicated on the rejection of any exterior moral (i.e., God’s) Law, and on the exaltation of man’s ability to transgress any (sexual) boundary they see fit (while imposing incredibly onerous boundaries on anything not related to sex n drugs and rock n roll).  The ultimate violation of innocence and purity is the sexual corruption (or ruination) of children.  Such damaged souls will, barring a miracle of Grace, be always perverse in their thinking and in their inclinations, and thus a rich vein for the sexular pagan left to mine.

Witness the push to normalize and justify child rape in just the past few months:

Are sexular pagan “elites” themselves interested in sexually abusing children?  I would say, if they are not now, many will be in short order. People addicted to pornography often have to go to more and more extreme material to find their next thrill.  How many writers of the puff pieces above have viewed and abused themselves to child pornography is impossible for all but the NSA to know, but the groundwork is already laid both in the pedophiles themselves, and in their political/cultural allies, for them to rapidly transgress into this (entirely righteous and absolutely necessary) taboo – since statistics show that most American adults are at present addicted to pornography, and leftists more than any other group.

And, we have seen what cultural exaltation of sodomy and other perversions has done to the younger generations growing up – their rates of same-sex experimentation, transgenderism, and other kinks is exponentially higher than preceding generations.  Things have come to the point now where there is often positive pressure on kids to sexually experiment with those of the same sex in order to avoid the reputation-killing label of homophobe.

So, it seems we can now expect a full-on push for normalization of the adult sex abuse of children.  If God doesn’t rain hellfire down on us at that point, I don’t know when He will. BTW, have you seen the hideous videos of single-digit age kids being exposed by their parents to topics like self-abuse, toy play, STDs, and the like?  I don’t recommend you watch them, they are skin-crawling and vomit-inducing.

Once the legalization of child rape is achieved, will all the boy-raping priests be hailed as victims and ahead of their time?

Secular Paganism Ascendant: Leftists Attempt to Impose Religious Test for Federal Offices September 14, 2017

At one time, Christianity was culturally, morally, and, to a lesser degree, politically ascendant in this country.  At least, some notional shade of Christianity, defective at various points and divorced from the Church, but, the United States was culturally and morally recognizable Christian for at least the first 150 years of its existence.  During that time, while the “no religious test” endarkenment error enshrined in the US Constitution always applied (and to eventually a highly destructive degree), one had to at least pay a certain lip service to being a Christian in order to occupy high office.

Over the past century or so, a different, irrevocably hostile religion has gained cultural and moral suzerainty – sexular pagan leftism or rationalistic materialism.  Especially since the 1960s, it has supplanted Christianity as the de facto official religion of the United States, to the extent that nowadays there is increasingly a religious test being applied not only for federal offices, but even for any public role at all, and these tests are rapidly multiplying out into private life.  As a for instance, a private corporation that is a federal contractor embraced the most radical interpretation of Obama’s transgender bathroom executive order, and basically declared that any criticism of transgenderism or sodomy of any stripe would be a fireable offense, even if this criticism occurred outside of work (such as via social meadia).  Basically, Christians were commanded to keep key moral precepts to themselves, or better yet, to jettison them entirely, on pain of losing their jobs.  And, of course, we have seen in recent years numerous careers ruined when individuals are exposed for holding heresies held to be damnable by the sexular pagans.

The end-game for this process is when it becomes completely normalized and enshrined in law (at least common law), such as when despicable leftist senators Dianne Feinstein and thievin’ Dick Durbin tried to apply a religious test to Catholic federal court nominees:

“Do you consider yourself an orthodox Catholic?” is an unusual and inappropriate question for a senator to ask a judicial nominee. In fact, the Constitution forbids it.

But that didn’t stop Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., from probing Notre Dame Law professor Amy Coney Barrett about her faith. Sen. Dianne Feinstein. D-Calif., also chided Barrett for being a practicing Catholic, proclaiming, “The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.”

Both senators appear to have forgotten Article VI’s admonition that “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Officer or public Trust under the United States.” [Well, this has always been a contentious issue.  The attempt to disassociate the government of the United States from an explicit compact with the Christian Faith was the biggest mistake the Founders made.  Over the nation’s history, the degree to which an official’s or candidate’s faith could inform his decision making has varied widely.  John Kennedy more or less had to apostatize the Catholic Faith in order to get elected, stating that he would not allow the Faith – or the “Pope in Rome” – to guide his decision making.  He was not so much opposed by militant secularists at that time -though there were a few – as by bigoted protestants who didn’t want a Catholic president*.  But as I said at the top, in most places in this country, for the first 70% or so of its history, you had to be at least publicly accepted as a fairly decent Christian/Jew in order to get elected.  Certainly there were exceptions, but for the most part, the rule applied.  Much public discourse up till the mid-20th century was heavily populated with references to the Christian God.  Now that is practically forbidden.  Interestingly, however, outside the decadent post-Christian West, acceptance of atheism is plummeting and belief in God is growing rapidly, to the extent that, globally, the number of atheists is actually shrinking.  But in the US, we are still in a period of rapid Christian decline and sexular pagan ascendance, most especially among the cultural, political, and economic elites, but also within the private lives of tens of millions of Americans who, even if they self-identify as Christian, put very little of the Faith in practice in their lives.]

The senators’ hostility to religion was loudly on display as Barrett and Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday, having been nominated by the president to fill two federal appellate vacancies………

……..Barrett faced numerous questions about her writings, including her criticism of stare decisis or the role of precedent in judicial decision-making in certain circumstances……..

………She also faced questions about a 1998 article that she co-authored as a law student, discussing Catholic judges participating in death penalty cases. In that article she considered situations in which the law and a judge’s religious faith conflict. [And she unfortunately took the JPII neo-liberal stance that the Catholic Church “condemns” the death penalty as gospel, and thus claimed that Catholics must oppose the death penalty.  Well, she is a product of Notre Dame.  As for a Catholic recusing themselves in cases that touch on the Doctrine of the Faith – baloney BS.  Believing Catholics must ESPECIALLY apply themselves to those cases that most closely correlate to the Doctrine of the Faith, otherwise, they are failing in their duty as Catholics.]

Senate Democrats attempted to distort her article, claiming she would put religious beliefs above the law. [The Law of God is above the law of man.  And sexular pagans do this constantly, putting their religious beliefs ahead of the Constitution as written and seeking to re-write it and/or obliterate it] But in fact, she wrote, “The legal system has a solution for this dilemma—it allows (indeed it requires) the recusal of judges whose convictions keep them from doing their job.”

Barrett is not the first to broach this subject. Many Catholic judges have considered and written on this issue, including Judge William Pryor, who sits on the 11th Circuit, and Scalia.

At any rate, these two did finally make it out of committee after this little demonstration by the sodomite-serving leftists.

Had Hillary been elected, I think we would have seen this kind of attack become completely regularized and accepted, if by some miracle any conservative would have ever been able to get elected after her.  Trump is increasingly appearing to be at best a pause, however, he is doing precious little to roll the leviathan back at the governmental level, though he has stirred up a significant cultural resistance.  Well, some of us always knew he wouldn’t be a conservative.  However, if he folds on the wall and caves to corrupt Republicrats on virtually everything else, I don’t know if some less undesirable judicial nominees are enough to vote for him again.  Without the wall, this nation as it was established and intended to be is finished.

*- The best thing Kennedy could have done would have been to implore the leading cardinals of the time – Cushing, Spellman, Meyer, etc – to consecrate the US to Our Lady and Christ the King in a public Mass immediately after taking office.  Doing so would have radically altered this nation’s history.  Alas, he was not remotely interested in doing so, and, probably, few of the cardinals would have been, either.

The Fascists at “Antifa” Plan Home Invasions to Attack Their Enemies September 13, 2017

If I lived alone and was not responsible for 8 other lives, I’d say, bring it.  But these things can get out of hand. I would never want to take another life.  However, I’m not going to be a silent, compliant drone to avoid the potentiality.

Fascist “anti-fascist” braggarts in the Bay Area are talking about how they are going to take the fight to their perceived enemies, even up to and including home invasions and breaking some bones to make their point:

Reveal published a story Tuesday titled “Antifa has a rapid response team that targets alt-right organizers.” The kind of targeting the article describes is not just keeping an eye out for people on the streets, this is more organized and specific behavior that results in a published hit list of right-wing targets. In this case, “hit list” is not a metaphor. This is the list of people Antifa members plan to hit and injure if they encounter them. Reveal reporter Will Carless spoke to one of the “most militant” members of the Bay Area Antifa, a guy called Dominic who sees himself as a “Nazi hunter.” Dominic is ready to take his street battle into his target’s homes if necessary..….

One antifa activist, who would give only the name “Dominic,” talked proudly in a series of interviews with Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting about forming this broader alliance of “Nazi hunters” to seek out, reveal and fight these enemies wherever they might show up. Their goal became even more specific after Charlottesville: to prevent more casualties like that of activist Heather Heyer.

“We’ll go to their house, I’ll put it that way. We’ll go to their house,” said Dominic, an imposing, muscular man in his 30s. [The radical hard left communists of “antifa” in Germany – from which they emanated as yet another Germanic scourge upon the world – have already put this tactic into effect for years.  Of course, over there, they largely get away with their assaults, either facing no convictions or receiving trivial sentences.  Will the same happen here?] “I don’t want to hurt anybody, but I want those people to stop it. If I have to put Richard Spencer or Nathan Damigo into the hospital critically, and it would have saved Heather Heyer’s life or the next potential Heather Heyer, I would do it without question.” [Yes, but one can never know that beforehand, can one?  Apparently antifa wants to err on the side of abandon, aggressively injuring or killing their ideological opponents.  That is what this mention of Heyer is really about, giving some moral cover to the wanton immoralities they intend to visit on those who have the temerity to think differently from them.]

Dominic’s targets don’t have to be actual Nazis, white supremacists or extremists. As the story points out, sometimes anyone on the right will do.………[No, this is entirely the point.  They might say they oppose the “alt-right,” but to them the alt-right is anyone who voted for Trump.  In these melees, anyone not part of their sadistic black clad group is an open target for attack.  These are pathetic impotent boys in men’s bodies acting out their rage against their failures and ineffectual lives in a form of public street theater catharsis.  But that doesn’t make them any less dangerous, perhaps even more so, as they are almost totally unhinged.]

……..In preparing for right-wing rallies scheduled to take place in San Francisco and Berkeley last month, Dominic and the other militants put together an 8-page handout on who might show up and added a one-page “Know Your Nazi” hit list with pictures of nine individuals including Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson. Gibson has denounced Nazis and white supremacists several times recently but he is on the list because some actual white supremacists have shown up at his previous events.

You’ve probably seen the video of what happened when Gibson and two members of his group showed up in Berkeley (and if you haven’t read Matt Labash’s story on it, it’s here). If you wondered how so many of the Antifa members recognized him instantly, it’s because his photo was on the hit list……..

You can go to the link if you want to see the video.

So how does this play out?  Civic leadership in nearly every major city in this country is dominated by leftists.  Most of these universities are in major cities.  The leadership of both have repeatedly demonstrated absolutely zero interest in maintaining civic order or reining in rioters, no matter how destructive, if they are viewed by them as being part of the great left wing machine.  Members of the “right”/anti-leftist ad hoc coalition, at the same time, are becoming increasingly aggressive in defending their rights.  There have been practical pitched battles in Berkeley and other locales where these two groups meet.  I cannot imagine people on both sides will limit themselves to bats, chains, and bike locks for long. At some point, someone is going to open up with a firearm, and where it goes from there, only the Lord knows.

We may find out soon enough. With Ben Shapiro speaking at Berkeley tomorrow Sept 14, and then the big “Free Speech Week” organized by Milo Yiannopoulos Sept 24-27, tensions could go beyond the breaking point.

On the plus side, I guess my wife no longer has any reason to wonder why I needed that hard plate body armor.  I can have that on and gun out within seconds of someone crashing the door.

I do need to get some kind of head gear, though.

The Left Intends Not Just to Make Conservative Thought Illegal, but Impossible September 13, 2017

Those who follow conservative – or even just anti-leftist – commentators on Google-owned Youtube already know that over the past year, there has been a rising persecution against these channel-owners and content-creators.  It started with a calculated campaign begun in the statist bourgeois media to label number Youtube channels as “extremist” and thus poison for advertisers.  But these advertisements made up a huge proportion of the income these content creators earned, which allowed them to produce high-quality content.  Nevertheless, what came to be known as the “ad-pocalypse” has moved steadily forward, with a disproportionate of conservative/libertarian/anti-leftist channels losing the large majority of their income through having their content “de-monetized” – moved into a state in which ads will not be shown.

But that was just the beginning.  Youtube is steadily rolling out a new “restricted state” that will place supposedly “offensive” content – offensive, that is, to the overwhelmingly extremist leftist employees of Google residing in Sodom on the Bay – into a literal Gulag state, where the videos do not show in search results, liking or sharing is impossible, comments are not allowed, and many other features that make social media work are eliminated.  Many users on Youtube, including myself, have already seen sneaking signs of this – comments made never show up, videos from subscribed channels either never show in one’s feed or show up days late, and thousands have been involuntarily unsubscribed from channels they long ago subscribed to (a process known as “shadow banning”).

And even this is only a tiny portion of the general campaign against free speech and persecution of “offending opinion” the practical monopoly Goolag is rapidly deploying.  Just this week, several purely mainstream conservative blogs were notified that they had been “almost blacklisted,” but still put into a disfavored state where their site will not show up in search results (or be radically de-prioritized to only show up hundreds or thousands of search results down), with a potential huge impact on their ability to be read and influence people.

Yes, there has been some banning and de-prioritization of extremist far left sites, but so far the ratio is running about 5 to 10 to 1 in terms of the political outlook of sites being sent down the memory hole.  That is to say, 5, 8, 10, or more conservative-leaning sites or channels are persecuted for every leftist site.  And the leftist sites so banned are truly extreme, calling for out and out violent revolution, while the conservativish sites are mainstream, even milquetoast in some cases.

Several sites you have likely read numerous times are on this list:

In a message addressed to us along with Drudge ReportAmerican ThinkerInstaPunditPJ Media and Gateway Pundit, Leo Goldstein writes:

Dear Editors,

You might be interested to learn, that your websites have been almost blacklisted by Google. “Almost blacklisted” means that Google search artificially downranks results from your websites to such extent that you lose 55% – 75% of possible visitors traffic from Google. This situation is probably aggravated by secondary effects, because many users and webmasters see Google ranking as a signal of trust.

This result is reported in my paper published in WUWT. The findings are consistent with multiple prior results, showing Google left/liberal bias, and pro-Hillary skew of Google search in the elections.

I write to all of them to give you opportunity to discuss this matter among yourselves. Even if Google owes nothing to your publications, it certainly owes good faith to the users of its search.

Intentionally hiding conservative and/or libertarian websites from the customers is an obvious breach of good faith.

We are seeing an ascendant religion flexing its muscles.  Having, somehow, almost silently, crushed Christianity as a moral and political force over the past 20 years through the bludgeon of the media and wedge social causes (the “moral majority” or evangelical right is practically non-existent as a cultural-political influence compared to even 20 years ago), the religion of sexular pagan leftism is starting to institute its anti-Christian, anti-Western religious precepts in a wholly repressive, unscrupulous way.  That’s because they are completely convinced that only they are right and good and moral, and all those who do not share their beliefs, down to the last jot and tittle, are conversely wrong and bad and immoral, and undeserving of any rights or even of their very existence.  Unfortunately, sexular paganism is not moderated by a solemn doctrine of charity for all, even manifest heretics and those that hate you.  It is instead motivated by the worst kind of envy, one of ugliest and most powerful emotions and one that will, quite inevitably, lead to all manner of horrors being enacted should the Left gain sufficient power – just as have occurred in every single historical context where such a tragedy has occurred.

When I wrote that someday Catholics blogs might fall under this ban, some commenters suggested the problem could be solved by moving to a different blog hosting service.  Sure, maybe I could type away all day and crank our 6 or 7 posts, but if nobody can ever find them, what would be the point?

I strongly recommend getting off every Google-owned property possible.  Stop using Google for searches, use DuckDuckGo.com instead.

Food for Thought: Every One of the Manson Family Women Came from Broken Homes…… September 7, 2017

…….or had atrocious, abusive relationships with their fathers. The primary cause, however, of sending very healthy, successful, happy young girls on a downward spiral that ended in becoming possessed by a literal demon incarnate and dominated by a wholly reprobate sense (up to and including allowing their own toddler children to be included in the “family” orgies) was legalized divorce on demand.  So, in a very real sense, one could say that feminism was responsible for the Manson family and the soul-rending atrocities they engaged in, of which the notorious murders only made up a very small part.

[Content warning for typical immodest hippie dress]

Now of course this is not to say that every child of divorce will wind up in such a sad state, but my own experience with several friends whose parents divorced is that every single one of them was devastated by it, even when the divorces occurred when they were grown and out of the house.  Divorce takes a terrible, sometimes hidden toll, and has played a huge role in the general collapse of the culture.  Furthermore, while separation of the spouses is in rare cases lamentably necessary, a huge number of divorces occur for basically selfish, skin-deep reasons.

How’s this for a topic totally out of left field?  Didja every expect to see me do a post on crazy Charles Manson and his nightmare hippie cult?

In a sense, however, Manson and his slave tribe were simply the inevitable result, the inexorable climax of the moronic hippy culture of hedonism and feel-good false virtue signalling. And they were hardly the only ones.  I can’t imagine how much publicity the Manson family, the “Symbionese Liberation Army,” and such would get today.  Perhaps, then, our culture which seems to be coming so much  unglued is not quite as bad off as it often appears.  Then again, rates of divorce, illegitimacy, porn addiction, drug addiction, et. al., are far worse today than they were in the late 60s/early 70s.

As our Blessed Lord told us, we shall not know the day nor the hour.  Several then living Saints, including Doctors Saint Jerome and Saint Augustine, were totally shocked to learn that Rome had been sacked in 410.  The collapse of Rome appears, 1600 years on, as practically inevitable, as totally unsurprising given the dangers and weaknesses afflicting the aged empire.  But at the time, no one really believed impregnable Rome could ever fall.  And yet, it did.

I’ve been meaning to comment on an awesome post by Boniface at Unam Sanctam Catholicam that discusses several very common traditional Catholic tropes.  I don’t think I’ll have time to do so again, today, unfortunately.  That will probably be a 2000 word post, minimum.  God willing, I’ll get to it tomorrow.  At any rate, if you haven’t read it, go do so.  It brings up much worthy of consideration.

 

Acceptance of Evolution of Species at the Root of Decline of Christianity September 6, 2017

Some interesting analysis by the protestant author Phillip E. Johnson in his book Defeating Darwinism on the role evolution plays in the political/cultural attacks on Christianity and its undermining from within our Faith.  In brief, even noted leaders of the materialist-scientific left have admitted that what they are positing is in essence a new religion in competition to Christianity (as I have personally maintained for years), but perhaps their greatest success in weakening Christianity as a counter-cultural force has come from the “conversions” they have won among “Christians” themselves, most notably among the leadership of most “mainline” protestant sects and within the Catholic Church itself.

Basically, we are confronted with a choice – accept Darwinism and the materialist secularist ethos, which posits that either there is no God, or, if He is permitted to exist, that he is a distant and uncaring Creator who is not involved a whit in human lives, or be a believing Christian*. Do choose wisely (excerpts cut and paste from pp. 98-101):

Julian Huxley was the grandson of Thomas Henry Huxley, also known as “Darwin’s bulldog,” because he was the most important early champion of Darwin’s theory.  TH Huxley had also invented the word agnostic to describe his own religious views.  Julian Huxley was one of the scientific founders of the neo-Darwinian synthesis, the modern version of Darwin’s theory.  He was also the promoter of a naturalistic religion called evolutionary humanism, and the founding secretary general of UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization.  In short, Julian Huxley was one of the most influential intellectuals of the mid-20th century, and 1959 was the high-water mark of his influence  [1959 being the centennial of Darwin’s publishing On the Origin of Species]  . Here are some excerpts from Huxley’s remarks at the centennial celebration:

“Future historians will perhaps take this Centennial Week as epitomizing an important critical period in the history of this earth of ours – the period when the process of evolution, in the person of inquiring man, began to be truly conscious of itself………This is one of the first public occasions on which it has been frankly faced that all aspects of reality are subject to evolution, from atoms and stars to fish and flowers to human societies and values – indeed, that all reality is a single process of evolution. [Hmmm……an all-encompassing philosophy that claims to explain all of life, where it came from  (nothing), what it means (nothing), and what moral behaviors must be accepted or rejected (those of the connected elite)……sounds kinda like a religion to me]

“In 1859 Darwin opened the passage leading to a new psycho-social level, with a new pattern of ideological organization – an evolution-centered organization of thought and belief.  [This is sort of an aside, but there is also a profound political angle to all this.  There is a very strong correlation between leftist politics and both support of evolution/scientific materialism and rejection of Christianity.  These go hand in hand.  Indeed, leftist politics are simply the governmental arm of the religion of sexular paganism or scientific materialism. But don’t think this is just incidental.  Darwin’s theory did not evolve in a bubble.  He set out to establish a scientific belief that would be gravely harmful to Christianity.  I increasingly believe that, at least among the upper hierarchy of leftist power-brokers, their war against Christianity is as deliberate as Soviet purges of the Russian Orthodox Church, and for the exact same reasons – their hellish omnipotent state can have no competitor for the love of the souls of men.]

“In the evolutionary pattern of thought there is no longer either need or room for the supernatural.  The earth was not created, it evolved.  So did all the animals and plants that inhabit it……….

“…...Finally, the evolutionary vision is enabling us to discern, however incompletely, the lineaments of the new religion that we can be sure will arise to serve the needs of the coming era”.  [sexular paganism – and yes, 1959 was a time when this new false demonic religion was becoming readily discernible to those with eyes to see]

In short, the triumph of Darwin implied the death of God and set the stage for replacing biblical religion with a new faith based on evolutionary naturalism.  That new faith would become the basis not just of science but also of government, law, and morality.  It would be the established religious philosophy of modernity[And indeed, it has.  I am largely unplugged from the culture, but what I still see has terrified me.  In the past 15 years the acceptance of evolution as hard truth and Christianity as fantasy has exploded to a degree never before seen. We have seen government, law, and, especially, morality, collapse as this radical shift in belief has occurred. But how has this suddenly happened?  Well…………]

………..The liberalized Christianity [of today] has been far more effective in legitimizing evolutionary naturalism than the explicit [and militant] atheism of Richard Dawkins……….Why repudiate Christianity explicitly when its rituals and language can be taken over and given a naturalistic meaning? [Remind anyone of anything that happened in the late 60s?! Something about a “new order?”]  The death of God does not require the end of religion or even the end of the traditional Christian denominations.  On the contrary, the new religion Huxley foresaw was already securely established within mainline protestant denominations.  Liberal ministers and theologians try to “save” Christianity by “demythologizing” it – removing or downplaying those supernatural elements that are so embarrassing to modernists.  [Indeed. The entire modernist heresy was nothing but an attempt to “reconcile” Catholicism with the theory of evolution, but with the Faith, of course, subordinated to the “fact” of evolution.  Neo-modernism of the conciliar mold does exactly the same.]

……..Politically astute scientific naturalists feel no hostility towards those religious leaders who implicitly accept the key naturalistic doctrine that supernatural powers do not actually affect the course of nature. [Why would they?  They recognize in those religious leaders co-religionists of a slightly different sect.  That is to say, the religious leaders ultimately worship Darwin, even if they sprinkle a little Christobabble over it to make it more palatable to the masses.]

I am not a militant anti-evolutionist by any means, I have not argued against Carbon 14 dating, performed detailed studies on the weaknesses in the fossil record (which do, however, appear to be mammoth), or have a completely firm and provable belief that the earth is exactly 6000 or 8000 or 10000 years old (though I do think it likely far, far younger than most all scientists believe) but I have for a number of years now basically disbelieved in evolution. I do so on the basis of a good bit of evidence but also as a conscious choice, because I believe in Jesus Christ and the Church He founded, and will not consciously permit anything to enter my thinking which poses a threat to that belief.  There are many reasons for this.  Far from the best reason, though an eminently practical one, is that belief in evolution buys me nothing, save some vague belief that I am somehow “educated” and part of the “in crowd,” while it threatens the most precious thing I can obtain in this life, the object around which this life of mine must and I pray always will revolve: working out my salvation with fear and trembling.

Having said that, as a degreed engineer I’ve certainly been through the secular materialist/pagan indoctrination camps and was never, ever much convinced.  I always felt the culturally approved explanations of the “origin of species” involved far too much hand-waving and appeals to authority to be valid.  As I’ve grown older, I’ve also come to surmise that the greatness and vastness of variety in God’s Creation are far beyond the capabilities of tidy little Victorian minds like Darwin’s to grasp, let alone describe.

*- There is a third option, but one that rarely lasts long.  That is to try to balance between acceptance of evolution in a nominal sense while gutting/redefining large portions of Scripture to accord with this purported “scientific truth.”  This is the tack many Christians have taken, but almost inevitably one must make a choice between belief in God and Sacred Scripture/Tradition, or this religion of men we are being sold. Experience shows that the large majority of those who open themselves up to dabbling in or considering evolution will fall away, or at best have a very confused and probably very cold faith.

The Church stood firmly against evolution for about 100 years, but silently, invisibly, far too many priests and others who rose to positions of power in the mid-20th century accepted its fundamental tenets.  It is from this belief that the modernist threat was born, and it is no accident at all that one of the most influential modernists of the past century, and perhaps the intellectual guidestar of the disastrous Council, Tielhard de Chardin, was also an avid Darwinist, to the extent of even attempting to perpetrate frauds purporting to provide the “missing link” between humans and apes.  See “Piltdown Man” and “Peking Man.”

…….and since we’re speaking of the heroism on regular display in Houston and southeast Texas, also revealing their callow envy at people they know to be far better than themselves.

What a spiteful little bit of bile, via Ace:

There’s actually quite a bit being revealed, probably more than the artist intended.  He shows much more his own ignorance of (and bitter anger towards) Christianity than he says anything remotely relevant of Christians, even erroneous fundamentalist protestants.

A local priest has told a joke/story about God’s intervention in our lives a number of times, and it is perfectly apropos for this cartoon and the whole Harvey situation.  It involves a man trapped on his roof amid steadily rising flood waters.  The man is praying for God to rescue him, and lo, about an hour later, comes a boat offering rescue to the man.  But the man refuses, continuing his prayer.  A little later comes another, larger boat.  Again the man refuses to be rescued.  Still later, when the man has had to climb his chimney as the water rises ever higher, a helicopter passes over and begins to lower its rescue cage, but the man waves them off.  Finally the man is swept off his chimney by the waters and drowns.  When he meets God, he asks why God didn’t rescue him.  God answers “I sent you one small boat, one big one, and a helicopter – what more did you want?”

That is to say, there is nothing to say that a “helicopter sent by government” was not influenced by Grace to respond to a particular person’s needs at a given time or place.  The idea that only a complete redneck imbecile would think that demonstrates the incredibly childish level of understanding our self-appointed “betters” in the media have of Christianity, and their utter disdain for the operation of Grace.  Only those possessed of a reprobate sense would have such a callous view of even the potentiality of the miraculous.  And yet these are the opinion-shapers – even still, even after a million self-inflicted wounds to their credibility – that form the thinking of tens of millions of Americans, probably still a majority.

As for me, I have no truck with anything they say or do anymore.  The media come across to me as high chiefs of a strange and always hostile religion.

More leftist hatred of the petit bourgeoisie here.

Still more ripoff – professional muslim agitprop agent Linda Sarsour misrepresents pro-radical muslim political campaign donation efforts as “hurricane relief.”  Most despicable, using money bilked from  unsuspecting people to stir up hatred and envy among those possibly rendered vulnerable to these terrible vices by the trauma they’ve experienced.  I suspect it will not result in much measurable success in Texas.

Be very careful who you donate to.  Already several shyster donation ripoff sites have been exposed in the Houston area.

 

Washington Post Prints Pro-Satanist, Anti-Christian Screed August 24, 2017

Bill Whittle mentioned in an interview he gave a month or two ago that the media is no longer even attempting to hide their real views, biases, and especially, hatreds.  They are all-in against the America That Was, and especially against what they mean to make its final political incarnation – President Trump (yes Trump is hardly a great representation of all that America used to be, or should be, but he is in opposition to the America they want, which is the same thing to them).

So it’s no longer a matter of tipping their hand, the media is straight up telling us who they are, what they want, who they like, and, since leftism has always been propelled far more by its hatreds and antitheses than by any real positive vision, who they hate.  And they hate Christians more than anything else, even to the point of giving a satanist room in the leading newspaper of the nation’s capitol (safe link) to try to make the outrageous claim that it is Christians who are behind the recent episode in Charlottesville, VA and the supposed rise of white supremacists, while satanists are, contrary to at least 2000 years of history, on the side of goodness and light.  The WP is literally endorsing an argument of Christians bad, satanists good, or, more accurately from their standpoint, Christians enemy, satanists ally.

But what should we expect from a group that has declared a holy jihad against the dread threat posed by decades old, stationary objects (statues)?  There is no limit to the lunacy, and it is driven by the kind of hatred that can only come from a false religion warring with the True One:

Every time you start to believe TheWashington Post cannot go any further off the leftwing rails, along comes another sweetheart of lunacy. Seven days ago, WaPo published an editorial justifying violence against Trump supporters. If you thought that was some pretty far out stuff, a few days later we were served up with an editorial that openly called for banning conservative speech on campus.

Crazy, right?

Nutso, right?

What is going on here? Why is one of the leading establishment news outlets in the country offering its imprimatur to dangerous lunatics advocating in favor of political violence and fascistic speech-killing policies?

Come on. Don’t be cute. We all know why. This is WaPo’s way of slowly but surely legitimizing these ideas, and both of these un-American ideas, silencing the Right through the use of force, are ideas the mainstream Left have secretly longed for for decades. [Yes, they want to silence the right.  It’s been glaringly obvious for years, and especially since Nov 2016.  But even more they want to drive Christianity from the public square, if not destroy it outright, and giving space in their paper to a satanist is, as Nolte notes, trying to get people comfortable with those ideas] When you boil the Left down to its essence, what you get are violent tyrants all-too eager to control and organize society at the point of a gun. [Author Nolte does not make this point, but I will – leftists have long had a close association with satanism and the occult, in addition to their frequent embrace of all manner of false religions (which involves contact with demons, since St. Paul told us in inspired and inerrant Scripture, that all the gods of the gentiles are demons) – anything that can combat and undermine the influence of Christianity.  Virtually the entirety of the leadership of the French Revolution belonged to the radical anti-Church European Lodge, and worship of the occult has been rife among social and political revolutionaries from Rudolf Hess to Alistair Crowley and Alfred Kinsey.]

Can WaPo get any worse, you ask?

Oh, my, yes — yes it can, you silly boy. Because when it comes to the Left, it will always, always, always get worse. Behold Exhibit A

Behold the words published by WaPo this very day informing us that Satan is good…[I will leave out the satanists attempt to sell satanism through it’s supposed embrace of freedom and exaltation of the individual. It’s the same old lie satan has always preached: that you may be as gods, and thus be free to sin.  It gets absolutely ludicrous, however, when the author tries to pin support for slavery and racism on Christianity, the one organization that has done more to obliterate both of these evils than any other entity on earth, while satanism has always been associated with many of the most atrocious and abominable acts imaginable, up to and including child sacrifice]

………WaPo’s whole “Oh, Satan. Yes, Satan” pitch does at least make one thing clear…

“Democracy Dies In Darkness” is not a warning, it’s a goal.

Exactly.

Satanists are terrifying examples of the depths of self-destroying irrationality to which a soul lost in sin can sink.  Satanists don’t deny the existence of God, in fact, many of them acknowledge it quite plainly.  It’s just that they feel they are better off, somehow, playing for the other side.  Some even acknowledge that doing so will result in eternal torments beyond human comprehension, and yet they still do it.  That is the very definition of diabolical disorientation and the reprobate sense.  Pray that you never fall into it, because there but for the Grace of God any of us could go.

And yet think of the infinite cynicism of the Washington Post to actually publish a screed like this.  I don’t know who is worse off, the editors who are so full of hate for Christians, so ignorant or uncaring of history, and so determined to have their tyrannical way, or the satanists themselves.

PS – This post is a good opportunity to give some warning to those who have gotten in the habit of watching political commentary on Youtube, especially of a conservative/libertarian/anti-leftist bent.  There is a guy that Youtube seems to be heavily promoting – he constantly shows up in my “recommended videos” no matter how much I remove them – named “styxhexenhammer666.”  His popularity has grown a great deal in recent months, and he is frequently grouped in  with Lauren Southern, Gavin McInnes, Sargon of Akkad, and similar.

I will not watch his stuff.  The man is an avowed atheist.  Yes I know his recent videos make no mention of this, and seem to provide often insightful commentary on ongoing cultural and political events, but I strongly recommend against watching any of his stuff, because every single video I’ve seen in the past 3-4 months has satanic imagery/symbolism in the background.  I have received queries about this guy from three different readers and I have advised all the same – yes he makes many good points, but no, don’t watch any of his stuff.  I refuse to give a satanist even the tacit support of a view, and I refuse to knowingly expose myself to someone who is  under satan’s influence.

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.

Faithful Catholics Will Be a Major Target of the Great Internet Purge August 22, 2017

The Googleocalypse is well underway.  Leftists enormously resent the great success right-wing (and, to a much lesser extent) Christian apologists/arguers are having on the internet.  In several internet media, perhaps most, it is the Left which has lost the precious cultural cache (one the Left itself carefully crafted) of being on the hip, cool, and “with it” side, while facets of the Right – or at least cultural/political rejection of the Left – has gained much of that cache.  The Left appears to many especially young internet users to be nothing but joyless scolds and endlessly aggrieved nutters.  Even more, the Left is well aware of this, both how they come across, and how they fail to convince others, especially more and more young (primarily male) people. This right wing prominence on the internet and, especially, some forms of social media, is perceived by the Left to have been a primary source of their eschatological disaster – the election of Donald Trump.

But rather than confront both their failed, destructive beliefs, and their failed, boring tactics, the Left, controlling virtually all the academy, virtually all corporate media, and the vast majority of senior management at most all corporations, and especially high-tech ones, is resorting to its favorite tactic – winning the game by denying the other side the ability to play.

It has been obvious for months that working through their control of monopolistic entities like Facebook, Twitter, Google, and even further down deep into companies with control over internet infrastructure, the Left is attempting to purge virtually all right wing content off of social media and, eventually, the entire internet if at all possible.  De-funding has been going on for months with Youtube removing ad revenues from tens of thousands of right wing, libertarian, or simply anti-leftist content creators.  Further steps are underway that will basically make many anti-left Youtube channels all but impossible for the public to view.

Even more, working in concert with fabulist leftist agitation organizations like the Southern Policy Law Center and Pro Publica, Google and others plan to create a hit list for what will considered “offensive,” and thus ban-able, speech.  The SPLC list is already infamous for its entirely political in nature (i.e., right wing = “hate speech”) and for its grouping of very mild, mainstream right-of-center organizations with supposed Nazis and other extremists.  Thus the Family Research Council gets labeled as an extremist group, and thus may fall under Google’s ban.  What the ban means is that sites so listed will initially not show up on search engine results, while opponent’s sites will (so, instead of getting the Family Research Council, you’ll get a huge number of hits attacking them, or from groups like the Sodom Human Rights Campaign).  Even more ominously, in creating these new, hidden, and incredibly politically biased “rules,” Google and companies like GoDaddy and other internet hosting services will simply remove the “offending” content from the web.  They will simply cease to exist.

As I said, this campaign is already well underway.  The very mild and mainstream Christian Post had most of its videos demonetized by Youtube last night for apparently “extremist” content.  And that is just the beginning.

For instance, The Remnant just experienced a wicked hit job by a local TV station due to their being ludicrously listed on the SPLC list of “hate groups.”  They are so flagged by the SPLC – as are a huge number of other Christian organizations – because The Remnant preaches the truth of Jesus Christ, which is that sodomy is always and everywhere wrong and marriage between people of the same sex is an impossibility and a horrific offense against God.  Thus, they – and I – are “homophobic” and guilty of “hate speech.”  It is incredible to have to face the fact that the nationI was born in, the supposed land of the free, in its powerful interests, at least, now defines being a Christian as being n amoral monster.

This entire effort is entirely politically motivated. The Left is losing arguments all over the internet, and as they become more and more extreme, of necessity, tilting at non-existent windmills of alleged bias and racism, they are turning off more and more people (thus the omnipresent tag line, “that’s how you got Trump”).  Thus, there is a powerful motivation to utterly silence their opposition.  Even more telling, however, is that the leftist viewpoint is simply the default view of the vast majority of employees, and still more among the management, at the vast, vast majority of Silicon Valley corporations, as the James Damoore episode reveals.  These people are so extreme in their views, and have inculcated themselves in such a deep ideological bubble for so long (and have been so poorly taught, by deliberate act), that huge swaths of people at Google, Facebook, and other very powerful, highly influential internet-related corporations simply have no conception of a viewpoint other than their own. They cannot fathom someone arriving at different conclusions, unless that person is very wicked and possessed of hideous ulterior motives – such as all the -isms with which the Left constantly labels its opponents. As such, these companies, in trying to eliminate “hate speech” will always have a profound bias in favor of leftist views and against any views contrary to leftism.

Taken together, this spells a massive plot against “free speech” and any attempt to save this rapidly faltering republic.  We are yet to see how far this effort will go, or what kind of opposition will emerge, but as this key article makes clear, the structure of this pogrom against supposedly “hateful” thought is being created, implemented, and propagandized for entirely by leftists. That it will end up almost entirely targeting conservatives, libertarians, and Christians (but not muslims, oh no!, not them, they are a vital part of the leftist coalition and the religion which the Left will happily adopt when the time comes) is a fait accompli.  All that is in question now is the opposition that will emerge and the effect that opposition will have.  Yes, some radical leftists advocating violence will probably be banned as well, at least at first, mostly for cover.  As the Youtube example has already amply demonstrated, however, we can expect anti-left speech to be demonetized, blocked from search results, or outright deleted at 10 to 100 times the rate of leftist “hate speech.”

It is entirely possible that as this program proliferates, many of your favorite blogs/Catholic websites may simply disappear.  Certainly those that use blogspot, a Google product, are at particular risk.  If this effort at banning certain kinds of anti-left speech is successful in its start, however, it is possible that the effort will spread wider and wider and eventually take in most if not all your favorite trad-Cath sites, because every single one of us is a horrid heretic spouting damnable blasphemy against the sexular pagan religion. We could all be targets.

Two brief thoughts as I wrap this up: if you have a Catholic blog, and the content is important to you, I would suggest backing up the content on hard drives or other memory devices you control periodically from now on.  You never know when the day will come that you try to log into your blog or website and it simply no longer exists.

Secondly, more and more I am coming to the conclusion that, in toto, the internet/world wide web whatever you want to call it has been a disaster for mankind.  Yes it has brought many benefits, but it has brought incredible moral, cultural, and now political calamities in its wake.  The porn epidemic alone is probably enough to damn the internet forever. But that’s really just one small issue.  The government – and service providers – can turn your phone into a spy microphone and camera.  If you use an Android as I do Google knows where you are and what you do virtually every moment of every day.   More and more, it appears that the powers that be want to suborn the internet from being an empowering tool for the masses into a tool of unprecedented technological repression.

It is impossible to quantify the good versus the bad of the internet, and yes I am a hypocrite as present as even as I see the internet more and more as a great net evil, I have no plans to stop using it.  Nevertheless, this thought is rather new to me and as it takes hold (or is refuted by wiser souls) I shall have to consider what the appropriate response will be.  It is very difficult to live these days totally offline, especially if one wants to homeschool, where so much depends on internet connectivity.  That’s scary, and brings to mind chapter 13 of the Apocalypse.

If you have followed these developments, do you think I am on target, or am I doing my best chicken little impersonation?  I find this effort extremely chilling, and given the success the Left has had in driving alternate viewpoints out of the academy and the media, why should we suppose they will not succeed in the broader field of the internet?

More later, God willing.
