……they might eventually leave their wives and shack up with a much younger man. Mind you, this happened to an already very liberal episcopalian minister, nevertheless, given the state of the culture, can you imagine the complications that would flow from a widespread married priesthood in the Western, Roman Rite?
I need to create a new category for blog posts – ick:
An Episcopal priest shocked his Queens congregation recently when he left his wife and married someone else — a much younger man.
The Rev. Juan Andres Quevedo-Bosch, 59, the archdeacon of Queens and rector of the Church of the Redeemer in Astoria, announced over Facebook last week that he got married in a Los Angeles church.
The Cuban-born prelate was pictured on a beach with the caption: “I’m in Miami Beach with my new husband. God is good.”
One churchgoer said many parishioners severed ties to the church after Quevedo-Bosch came out as gay at the pulpit a month ago.
“Most of the people aren’t coming anymore,” the elderly woman said. “Because he’s homosexual, people have stopped coming.”……
…….Quevedo-Bosch has not been seen at the church for the last month, she said. [Such a concerned, self-denying shepherd, no?]
Attendance has dwindled, she said, with many parishioners instead going to Mass at a satellite church a few blocks away. [It’s not “mass.” I was an episcopal, and we never, ever called it “mass.”]
Saturday services have been canceled, and only seven worshippers showed up at Wednesday’s Mass. [Wrong again. The numbers are not terribly atypical for episcopal worship houses, whose median congregation size now stands at less than 100, the vast majority of which are over 70 years of age]
……….“Priests who wish to enter into same-gender marriage are approved to do so in the Episcopal Church and in the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island,” said Bishop Larry Provenzano, head of the Long Island diocese, which includes Queens.…… [Which tells you everything you need to know about why the episcopal sect is dying in a spectacular self-imolation]
………Before becoming a priest, Quevedo-Bosch worked as an economic planner for the city of Havana in the early 1980s, his LinkedIn page says. He studied to be a priest in his native country. [I think we can start to see the picture come together.]
More and more I hate this world.
A thought on the background – this guy’s wife is 73. He emigrated from Cuba to the US 20 years ago. One of the best ways to get a green card/visa is to get married. You do the math.
It is revealing to me the degree to which incidence of sodomy is directly proportional to dwelling in large urban areas/disconnectedness from nature and hard, physical labor. It is also no coincidence that the four largest sodomite communities in the country – NY, SF, LA, and Miami – all grew up around large sea ports back when ships were staffed with large crews.

For the first time, the eXXXotica porn/perversion “convention” is coming to Dallas. Held a few times a year around the country, this panoply of hedonism features 150 porn “stars,” hundreds of booths hawking all manner of products dedicated towards personal gratification, and a general aura of debauchery. It will be held next week, Aug. 7-9 2015 at the city-owned Dallas Convention Center. Beyond near-occasion of sin billboards have popped up around the area, dismaying many. This expo of hedonism has been planned, apparently, for months.
Local feminists are not pleased. While feminism is a highly disordered ideology, especially in its extreme forms, some fair points are raised below by one local feminist. The question is, will they be the only ones to protest this event?
The EXXXotica Convention is headed to Dallas and our Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center next month “to bring over 150 adult industry stars as well as hundreds of exhibitors” promoting the sex trade.
New Friends New Life has a mission to restore and empower formerly trafficked teen girls and sexual exploited women and their children. We are among the nonprofits working to show the connection between the fight against human trafficking and the very vehicle that drives the demand for young, vulnerable children.
Why would the City of Dallas encourage conventions that propel and advertise the gateway and root cause of sex trafficking? [Indeed, this “expo” is sponsored by online escort services and porn companies. There is a close connection between prostitution and human trafficking.]
Every 26 seconds, a child is sold. Men who prostitute women and traffic children are twice as likely to view pornography. Every second, 28,258 pornographic images are viewed online, creating an insatiable appetite to purchase sex on sites such as backpage.com, and online escort services that are sponsoring this convention……..
……….Trafficking victims are groomed through pornography. They are trained and then trafficked. Ninety percent of exploited women have been sexually abused. Eighty-six percent of victims have been forced to watch and imitate pornographic images and were involved and taught the sex trade through porn. The Trafficking Victim Protection Actmakes it clear that the majority of those involved in pornography have been coerced, forced and defrauded, and many of them are children. That is not about free speech. This is about sex trafficking. This is about the buying and selling of children in our city.
Whether explicitly or implicitly, the City of Dallas by hosting this convention is facilitating the coercion of the vulnerable and, ultimately, the violence they will endure. We know that traffickers have been preparing for next weekend. They have been recruiting from the nearly 400 kids who are trafficked every night in Dallas. They have been getting “their girls” in line, and when the convention comes, these girls will be bought and sold. It will not be their choice. It will end up being their sentence.
So, boys, we have a prayer vigil scheduled next week, August 5, at 8 pm outside The Men’s Club. Who is up for joining me in praying outside the Dallas Convention Center on Friday or Saturday night? It seems this nightmare starts at 5pm. So maybe 8, again? Which night would work better for you, Friday or Saturday? Unbelievably, this exercise in self-will against God also takes place on Sunday, but I’m not going to impact my Sunday by praying outside there.
So………I’m not just real high on doing this. I think it would be good and valuable, but there are some substantial down-sides. For one thing, Dallas Convention Center is huge and the crowd is likely to be large. It would be difficult to make an impact. Parking may be a hassle, as would be meeting up with each other. I’d pretty much have to drive around there and ID a place where I think we could meet, unless one of you knows the area well and could make a suggestion. And, I would like to have pretty good assurance we’d have a sizable crowd, a dozen minimum, if this effort were to be worthwhile. Let me know your thoughts. Because I know some of you have concerns over commenting online, you can contact me directly if you want: email@example.com
If there is interest and the logistics can be worked out I think it would be a very good evil to stand against. Let’s see what we can come up with. It would be a great way to get that “smell of the sheep,” as well as opposing the human trafficking that was such a focal point of the recent papal encyclical. Why, it would almost atone for my neo-Pelagian Promethean bead counting!
A final thought: here we are in a city that has been, one might say, divinely warned through a series of unusual seismic events. And yet here they go, thumbing their nose at God again and saying “non serviam.” Ultimately, this will not end well, unless there be a great change of hearts. Dallas purports itself to be a conservative mecca (used to be but it ain’t, anymore) in a conservative state, but it is also known worldwide for the number and “quality” of its sexually oriented businesses. This is a dichotomy that should not stand.
And yet, I haven’t heard any denunciations from 3725 Blackburn St, have you?

And so yet another violation of federal law:
In the video, actors posing as representatives from a human biologics company meet with Ginde at the abortion-clinic headquarters of PPRM in Denver to discuss a potential partnership to harvest fetal organs. When the actors request intact fetal specimens, Ginde reveals that in PPRM’s abortion practice, “Sometimes, if we get, if someone delivers before we get to see them for a procedure, then we are intact.”
Since PPRM does not use digoxin or other feticide in its 2nd trimester procedures, any intact deliveries before an abortion are potentially born-alive infants under federal law (1 USC 8).
I will say Center for Medical Progress has set these up very well. They released more nebulous, potentially less damaging videos first, and when Planned Butcherhood responded by pretending they are never in this for the money, that this kind of thing is just done for the good of medical science, etc., later video releases could reveal them as the liars they are. Very well done.
From what I understand, the most damning videos are still to come. But will they have any effect? Will the demonrat party and their Repubnik co-religionists in Congress give even these atrocities a pass, and continue to ramp up PP’s funding? How is it that a “non-profit” can net over $100 million in 2014?
And now for the reaction: a judge in the People’s Republic of California has issued a temporary injunction against CMP from releasing at least some of their videos:
Yesterday, a judge in California issued a temporary injunction barring CMP from publishing videos that include footage from a May 2014 meeting between officials at StemExpress and CMP investigators posing as potential buyers of fetal organs. The StemExpress lawsuit alleges the covert recording of that meeting at a restaurant is the product of unlawful electronic eavesdropping.
California has unusually tough prohibitions on electronic recording. One of those restrictions is that all parties must consent to the recording of “confidential communications.” This isn’t my area of law, but a quick survey of the case law suggests that recordings in restaurants may sometimes be considered confidential communications and sometimes not, depending on the circumstances. It’s going to be a fact-specific determination, so CMP may ultimately be in a bit of trouble there depending on what the testimony and evidence turns up. On the other hand, the temporary injunction is a prior restraint, which typically isn’t the right solution to alleged newsworthy conduct that can be remedied post-litigation. The temporary injunction was ordered to last until a hearing can be convened on August 19. StemExpress also alleges theft, fraud, and interference with contract.
Other CMP videos can be released, so long as they don’t include the StemExpress meeting.
May God protect and defend the good souls at CMP. They are doing ground-breaking work.
Without Planned Barrenhood’s focus and resources, the baby-murderers in this country would be very hard pressed to respond to continued pro-life pressure. Planned Butcherhood has always been the focal point of the baby-butchery industry, its primary propagandist and most influential lobbyist. Should it go away, it would cripple the abortion industry.
Lord, may that day come.

This is one in depth investigation. In a new video entitled Human Capital – Episode 1: Planned Parenthood’s Black Market in Baby Parts, the Center for Medical Progress provides even more damning evidence that Planned Barrenhood routinely sells aborted baby parts for profit, something that certainly seems to be illegal under current federal law.
Most of the video below features the testimony of a woman who once worked at a business that purchased aborted baby parts for “research.” She details the profit motive to Planned Barrenhood and her own personal horror at having to handle and manipulate tiny legs, heads, etc. She claims both Planned Barrenhood and the company she worked for – just one of many that trade in human flesh – were profit-motivated and sought to maximize income.
The video closes with a chilling segment at a Planned Barrenhood facility where parts from little murdered babies are sorted through, analyzed for their economic value, and discussed like one were discussing cattle parts. I wonder how many left wing employees at Planned Barrenhood believe “meat is murder” and yet have no problem haggling over the price of the little parts remaining from murdered babies.
No wonder the democrats have totally freaked out and are trying to change the story by investigating the Center for Medical Progress, instead of Damned Barrenhood. There is absolutely no justification for this traffic in human parts and yet the left wing sexular pagan ethos more or less demands that this kind of thing occur. There is no horror to which they will not descend in pursuit of their sexular pagan “utopia.”
Really, how far of a step is it, from using aborted baby parts for medical research, from creating babies intentionally for that purpose? And then what follows after that?
Soylent Green, here we come.
Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, Basics, contraception, disaster, General Catholic, horror, It's all about the $$$, paganism, persecution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil, unbelievable BS.
Tomorrow, July 28 2015, a nationwide series of protests will occur to express dismay at continued government funding of the murderous organization Planned Parenthood. The DFW protest is at noon tomorrow at the Planned Barrenhood facility in Fort Worth. All details here. There are protest sites all around the country.
This protest is part of a broader effort by an organization calling itself “women betrayed.” Check the link to see if there is one near you. They are also encouraging all interested parties to contact demonrat congressmen to express outrage that these representatives would be the recipient of Planned Barrenhood blood money. They have a list of all Congressmen – democrats to a man save for Susan Collins of Maine – who have received donations from Planned Barrenhood, and thus gained from the illegal sale of murdered baby parts.
Meanwhile, in a clear sign of this nation having developed, collectively, a reprobate sense, Obama is sicking the Department of Justice not on Planned Barrenhood, but on the Center for Medical Progress, the group that brought the latest revolting revelations of Banned Parenthood immoralities and misdeeds to light. Demonrats are reacting in typical fashion, trying to project the evil they support onto actions of total innocents. In this case, it’s shoot the messenger for holding up to the American people the brutal reality of abortion. And that is one thing demonrats do not want discussed:
JUSTICE TO PROBE CENTER FOR MEDICAL PROGRESS — While congressional committees investigate Planned Parenthood’s practices, the Justice Department agreed to look into whether the group that released the sting videos obtained the footage legally. In response to a request by House Democrats, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Wednesday afternoon that Justice would “review all of the information and determine what the appropriate steps moving forward would be.”
Several state governments, including California, have also launched investigations of the Center for Medical Progress.
Which only gets back to Reilly’s brilliant thrust – it is the rationalization of sin that people have bought into. Those who do grave evil but who support the rationalization can be excused, but those who point up the evil of the rationalization itself (in this case, the infinite evil of pre-born infanticide) must be excoriated.
Just the kind of environment one would expect in a post-Christian, socialist nation where the government bureaucracy mostly pursues its own ideological and material interest. But most of us (or at least I) grew up believing America to not be that kind of place. Much of Europe, yes, Canada, yes, the Soviet Union, certainly, but not the good ol’ USA, the “most Christian country in the world!”
I kept telling myself that for far too long. But it is utterly untenable today.

WARNING THIS POST IS EXTREMELY EXPLICIT AND DISTURBING. I AM POSTING IT, HOWEVER, FOR THE INSIGHT IT PROVIDES TO AT LEAST SOME OF THOSE DEDICATED TO THE DESTRUCTION OF THE FAMILY AND THE CHRISTIAN ETHOS.
So said a highly influential radically perverse couple who, though married, were primarily inclined to perversion. They also spent years sexually abusing many children, not least of which their own daughter, raped by her own father at age 5.
The daughter has written extensively on the subject of the torture she and many other children experienced at the hands of her sick parents, of their influence on the nascent sodo-rights activists of the late 60s/early 70s, and much else besides (my emphasis and comments):
What they did to me is a matter of unfortunate public record: suffice to say that both parents wanted me to be gay and were horrifed at my being female. My mother molested me from ages 3-12. The first time I remember my father doing anything especially violent to me I was five. Yes he raped me. I don’t like to think about it. If you want to know about his shenanigans with little girls, and you have a very strong stomach, you can google the Breendoggle, which was the scandal which ALMOST drummed him out of science fiction fandom. [Almost. I used to be a big fan of sci-fi when I was a kid. Then I found so many of the great luminaries were really screwed up people, and so many were militant atheists. I tend to suspect the charges levied against Arthur C. Clarke late in life were true.]
… My observation of my father and mother’s actual belief is this: since everyone is naturally gay, it is the straight establishment that makes everyone hung up and therefore limited. [This is so extreme as to be practically nonsensical. If everyone is “naturally gay,” why is the tendency observed everywhere in nature the direct opposite? I thought we were all good Darwinians now who knew humans evolved from animals? If so how could our behavior be the direct opposite of the overwhelming behavior of the lower animal orders? And if we are all “naturally gay,” how did this “straight establishment” get started and come to power? This is the kind of ludicrous, completely unproven and unprovable crazy claim that informs so much of the sexular pagan ethos. So much for being the rational thinkers they propose themselves as] Sex early will make people willing to have sex with everyone, which will bring about the utopia while eliminating homophobia and helping people become “who they really are.” It will also destroy the hated nuclear family with its paternalism, sexism, ageism (yes, for pedophiles, that is a thing) and all other “isms.” If enough children are sexualized young enough, gayness will suddenly be “normal” and accepted by everyone, and the old fashioned notions about fidelity will vanish. As sex is integrated as a natural part of every single relationship, the barriers between people will vanish, and the utopia will appear, as “straight culture” goes the way of the dinosaur. As my mother used to say: “Children are brainwashed into believing they don’t want sex.” [What a sick rationalization. Never before has Chesterton’s aphorism been more apt. These sick individuals, in order to justify their sin, will believe literally anything, including that little children “want sex.” Anyone who knows the innocence of a child knows what a monstrous lie this is.]
… I am still reeling from the death of my last bits of denial. It IS the homosexuality that is the problem. It IS the belief that all sex all the time will somehow cure problems instead of creating them that is the problem. [So what we’re looking at is a mentality that stands in radical contrast to all Judeo-Christian belief and virtually all accepted behavior around the world and seeks to replace them with a satanic hedonism that seeks children both as its prey and as its next generation.]
So I have begun to speak out against gay marriage, and in doing so, I have alienated most of even my strongest supporters. After all, they need to see my parents as wacky sex criminals, not as homosexuals following their deeply held ethical positions and trying to create a utopia according to a rather silly fantasy. They do not have the willingness to accept the possibility that homosexuality might actually have the result of destroying children and even destroying the adults who insist on remaining in its thrall. [And another soul has seen through the fog of lies to get it.]
Now for all well-meaning people who believe I am extrapolating from my experience to the wider gay community, I would like to explain why I believe this is so: From my experience in the gay community, the values in that community are very different: the assumption is that EVERYONE is gay and closeted, and early sexual experience will prevent gay children from being closeted, and that will make everyone happy. [If not everyone, at least the vast majority are believed to be at least somewhat open to “experimenting.” Thus in the near future I will not be surprised at all – and in fact predict – that refusal to positively respond to a perverse proposition will be taken as ipso facto evidence of “intolerance” and “bigotry.”]
If you doubt me, research “age of consent” “Twinks,” “ageism” and the writings of the NUMEROUS authors on the Left who believe that early sexuality is somehow “beneficial” for children. [No, you really don’t want to do that. Especially “twinks.”]
… What sets gay culture apart from straight culture is the belief that early sex is good and beneficial, and the sure knowledge (don’t think for a second that they DON’T know) that the only way to produce another homosexual is to provide a boy with sexual experiences BEFORE he can be “ruined” by attraction to a girl……. [I strongly suspect this is indeed the case. This is the kind of thing that it has been impermissible to say for decades, and look where that’s got us. And I am very concerned that the younger generations, even more horrifically sexualized than mine, will provide a rich hunting ground for recruits. There is already evidence that millennials are far more open to perversion, not just theoretically, but for themselves.]
………..Already the statistics for sexual abuse of children of gays are astronomically high compared to that suffered by the children of straights. [Link is to the Regnerus study covered on this blog in 2012]
Naturally my perspective is very uncomfortable to the liberal people I was raised with: I am “allowed” to be a victim of molestation by both parents, and “allowed” to be a victim of rather hideous violence. I am, incredibly, NOT ALLOWED to blame their homosexuality for their absolute willingness to accept all sex at all times between all people. [Of course. Because nothing can be permitted to undermine the rationalization/hypnosis the vast majority of Americans have bought into today.]
As if to confirm this poor abused woman’s supposition, a supposed “anti-bullying” conference in Iowa turned into a veritable showcase of perversion
as 11 year olds were exposed to strap ons, analingus, and other assorted grotesqueness:
Middle school girls from Humboldt (pop.: 4,690) had the opportunity to learn “how to sew fake testicles into their underwear in order to pass themselves off as boys.”
One speaker wore a dress made out of condoms to which could be “used as needed.” . . .
The rest of the sessions involved issues such as “how to pleasure their gay partners.”
Nate Monson, executive director of Iowa Safe Schools, said parents who worry about middle school kids hearing about anal sex with strap-ons and analingus are “disgusting.”
“It’s incredibly frustrating that adults are being the problem and being the bully,” Monson told the Des Moines NBC affiliate. “
Iowa Safe Schools is actually an organization that promotes the sodomite lifestyle. A different conference in April caused similar scandal by being similarly explicit. Iowa Safe Schools says that they are simply compelled to delve into these grossly perverse matters because it is the only way many “queer” teens have to “get answers.” Oh, for crying out loud. What a transparent excuse. As if this culture – as if! – is not awash in porn and other explicit sites where this kind of topic is covered in depth to the point of nausea. Please.
Innocence lost can never be retrieved. It is gone forever, which is why it is such a tempting targets to souls of ill disposition.
While very few today want to believe it, there is great evidence there is a plan being played out, and your children and mine feature heavily in those plans. We have seen major pro-sodomy activists proclaim that their “movement” cannot survive without the ability to indoctrinate children into their lifestyle.
Amazingly, all this used to be known. It was simply conventional wisdom. But after decades of sustained leftist efforts to destroy the usual means of transmission of moral knowledge, of cultural knowledge, suddenly it’s novel, even controversial, to say what pretty much everyone knew to be true 40 or 50 years ago. All those laws against sodomy and the entire lifestyle didn’t just fall from the sky, they were put in place due to the hard lessons of experience. That’s all been thrown away now, of course, and we are going to have to learn them all over again, to our dear, dear cost.
TV, instantaneous news transfer, abdication of duty and general moral turpitude are to blame, IMO.

I have, good readers, been blessed to read several good histories on the persecution of Catholics in Mexico. Blood Drenched Altars, Mexican Martyrdom, The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene, and the writings of Gary Potter all helped shape at least a basic knowledge of the course of the terrible persecution that afflicted the Catholic Church in Mexico over the period 1815 – 1940.
However, I must say, none of these books have established so clearly the near total involvement of highly anti-Catholic radical Masons at the top of the Mexican revolutionary leadership throughout this time period, and the deliberate
intervention of the United States government in favor of these Masons, as Father Michael Kenny SJ’s book No God Next Door. From Joel R. Poinsett’s initial formation of a joint Mexican-American Supreme Masonic Council in New Orleans in 1827 – which set the course for the Mexican revolution for the next century, and thoroughly inculcated its anti-Catholic character – to Woodrow Wilson’s constant intervention in favor of the most radical, Church-hating elements in the disastrous “Tampico Affair” and other acts, this American-influenced (and at times dominated) Masonic cabal was the vital instigator of the vicious persecution of the Church and the subsequent secularization of Mexican life, which largely persists to this day.
There is far too much vital history contained in this book to cover in one post. You really need to read the book. But I can give some excerpts that will help establish the reality of American Masonic (and racist, anti-Catholic US Southerner) involvement in the savage, century-long persecution of the Church. First, I’ll establish the personage of Joel R. Poinsett: Southerner, dedicated to establishing a great southern expansion of the United States (realized after the unjust war of 1846) for the purposes of preserving the relative power of the slave states against the increasingly abolitionist North, Poinsett was appointed the first representative of the federal government to recently independent Mexico in 1825. He immediately began gathering around himself all the radical, disaffected elements he could find, men dedicated both to turning Mexico into an American-type representative democracy, and, even more, dedicated to breaking the influence of the Catholic Church over Mexican life. Thus, an early example of “nation-building” American hubris, almost two centuries before our adventures in the Middle East, attempting to impose on an unwilling and, even more, indisposed population the same kind of government that required centuries of development (and protestant/endarkenment) errors to bring to fruition in the United States.
When Poinsett was informed that Mexico was not then (nor is not now?) a suitable land for American-type democracy by Mexican leaders, he began organizing plots to overthrow that leadership and instigate an American-backed progressive revolution. His plan was to install a liberal democracy so friendly and beholden to the US for its power that it would willingly trade away most of Mexico’s land so that they might rule the rump state that remained. His actions caused great scandals, and he was subsequently recalled to the US under a dark cloud of shame, and his co-conspirators were exiled with him.
But Poinsett was a determined man. He gathered around himself in New Orleans the revolutionary friends he had made in Mexico, and introduced them to the Lodge. The Lodge would become the meeting place, nexus of communications, and source of diabolical inspiration for the Revolution for the next 120 years. We take up this seminal secret meeting at the Grand Lodge La Luz in New Orleans held in 1827 under Poinsett’s direction:
Poinsett and the pro-American liberal party he had organized adopted in secret session of the Grand Lodge La Luz in New Orleans, 1827, the following preamble and platform:
“Convinced that the clergy, inasmuch as it opposes colonization (of Mexico, by Americans), is a permanent obstacle to reform; that it impedes the diffusion of light, [i.e., endarkenment ideals promoted by Masonry] provokes antagonism towards foreigners (i.e., Joel R. Poinsett)….the Mexican National Rite adopts in all its parts the political plan and program of reform proposed by progressive men (i.e., Joel R. Poinsett), which should be initiated in Congress as soon as possible by the Masons who hold seats there…….because being based on the principles taught by Masonry, the Rite should redouble its efforts to make it effective in accordance with the terms in which it is conceived, namely:
1. Absolute freedom of opinion and abrogation of all laws censoring the press
2. Abolition of special privilege for the clergy…..
3. Suppression of monastic institutions and all laws recognizing the intervention of the clergy in civil business, such as the marriage contract, etc.
4. Improvement of the moral condition of the people by depriving the clergy of its monopoly on public education by increasing educational facilities and inculcating social duties by means of the foundation of…….secular educational institutions for classic literature, science, and morals” [Education was in the hands of the Church because, to that time, no other entity could be bothered to provide it. Education was free or incredibly cheap, and had been a substantial expense for the Church which operated schools, seminaries, and colleges at her own expense for the good of the people. But since those schools naturally conveyed a Catholic viewpoint and the Doctrine of the Faith, along with all the other subjects, it had to be destroyed as an obstacle to “progress.”]
So what did this lead to? With the practically communist 1917 Constitution – never voted on or approved by the people, but rammed through an unelected Congress under threat of violence – all of these anti-Church provisions and more were put in place. And it was the United States government that assured the victory of the most radical elements in the long Mexican revolution:
“Article 3 of the 1917 Mexican Constitution is the main avenue that Calles [bastard child, never baptized, likely not even qualified to hold office as the son of a foreigner, he was also a brigand, murderer, insatiable thief, and manifest failure at all he tried before he became, for his enormous hatred of the Church, a powerful figure in the Revolution] has seized for the permanent uprooting of religion from the minds and hearts of Mexico. This article abrogates the parents right to provide for the education of their offspring; and on this quite justifying basis, Calles proclaimed, and by organic law has since executed, his purpose, “to enter into and take possession of the consciences of children, of the consciences of youth,” and compel all Mexico “to belong to the revolution.”
Thus, also was finally realized in its fullness the plan of action set by Joel R. Poinsett and adopted in 1827 by the joint Mexican and American Supreme Masonic Councils in New Orleans, namely, to abolish the privileges of the clergy and all laws recognizing intervention of the clergy, and “to deprive the clergy of its monopoly on public education.”
This meant, as the context obviously shows, that the Church must be kept out of the schools, and religion out of all education, so that the State shall mould the pupils to its will. This was precisely the purpose of the Farias decrees of 1833, of the Juarez code of 1857, of the Queretaro Constitution of 1817, as of the Calles amendments of 1934 and of the high Masonic Councils before and after 1827. And all were based on the same ground, that the child belongs to the state, and that the state alone has the right to educate him, the parent not at all. [Turning parents, in effect, into slaves of the state, slaves enjoined to provide offspring that the state will then take and mold according to its will. How similar to the rhetoric of leftists of our own time (it takes a village). There is nothing new under the sun, or Son.]
……..That the child belongs to the state, and that the state has the sole right to educate him, and that all religion must be excluded from his teaching, is a primary Masonic doctrine, not only in Mexico and Latin countries, but here in the US, as well. In Spain and France and other Latin lands the first sign of Masonic dominance is the exclusion of the crucifix from the school and its replacement with anti-Christian teachings. United States Scottish Rite Masonry has always been in union with the Grant Orient and in sympathy with this policy, and all American masonry is in formal union with it now.…….
…….The Supreme Council of the Thirty Third Degree in Washington and the Imperial Council of Oregon, having resolved in 1920 that education in religionless public schools must be made compulsory, on all, both started an agitation for a law in Oregon compelling public school attendance for all children from 8 to 16. They assumed credit for its adoption in 1922 and had similar bills ready for other states……..
No sooner had the Supreme Court [in 1934] ruled out the Masonic doctrine as the direct antithesis of our “fundamental theory of liberty,” that the Supreme Council of the Thirty Third Degree issued in Washington a counter pronouncement in defiance of the Supreme Court of the nation…………issuing a profession of principles which Calles and his Mexican Masons could not better:
“We are, therefore, justified in continuing to assert and maintain our belief in the value of the compulsory requirement of attendance of all children upon the public schools. We cannot at this time but insist upon the existence of the principle that the right of the child to avail himself of the educational opportunities of the public school is superior to the right of the parent or of any corporation, secular or religious, to shape in advance his intellectual allegiance and we should be alert to unite with every movement which tends to the maintenance of this right.” [It certainly seems that in this year of our Lord 2015 the Masons have essentially achieved their goal of “de-mythologizing” virtually all young people in this country and so many others – thus paving the way for our conquest by islam]
Sorry, this post is becoming longer than I planned, so I’ll cut it off there. Still later in the book, no less a personage than Theodore Roosevelt denounced the favoritism and direct aid given to the worst, most anti-Catholic revolutionaries by several American administrations, especially democrat ones. It is no accident that the Revolution in Mexico made its greatest gains, and consolidated its cruel anti-Church policies to the utmost, under the administrations of Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt. Father Kenny shows that it was Wilson’s repeated intervention on the side of the revolutionaries Carranza, et. al., that allowed them to triumph over the much more moderate government of Huerta, among others. Even the fruitless “punitive expedition” of Pershing against Pancho Villa could be seen as an effort to aid the by-then established radical government consolidate its power. It certainly could not be due to Villa’s attack on the US in Columbus, NM, since Wilson (and others) had looked the other way on numerous previous occasions when such depredations occurred (as in, when Calles ordered the murder of three men in Laredo, TX), and even more, allowed free passage to armed revolutionary columns through US soil, all the while seeing to it that they were well supplied in arms, ammunition, food, and money, while blockading all such vital materials to the more conservative elements.
US influence was so decisive that even the arrival of US warships in Mexican ports could instigate the fall of a government, depending on the vagaries of the political situation. Throughout Calles reign, US diplomats like the racist southerner Josephus Daniels (long-time friend of FDR since Wilson administration days and an ardent supporter of Jim Crow laws in the South) provided him with most vociferous, unequivocal support, while dismissing concerns that he was repressive or dictatorial in any way. They did this due to both a similarity of political outlook – progressives always reward and never criticize their “friends” – and because US industry with billion dollar concessions in Mexico demanded it.
Poor Mexico, so far from God, so close to the United States!
Final thought – could the current enormous influx of immigrants from Mexico, to the point where they will likely constitute a majority in most of the Southwest of the US within a few decades, be poetic justice for US treatment of Mexico for so many years? God works in mysterious ways, but never fails to punish those who attack His own.
Something to consider, anyway.

Not sure how wide a play this item has gotten, my wife found it and forwarded it to me. It’s a photo of a list of prices
a Planned Barrenhood affiliate a company closely associated with Planned Barrenhood charged for various baby parts, as of 1999. The prices here certainly seem in line with what we’ve seen revealed in recent videos, though I’m sure inflation has taken a bit of a toll.
I’m all for medical research, but who are the Dr. Frankenstein’s ghoulish enough to use aborted babies in their labs? Isn’t this the kind of monstrous utilitarian mentality warned of in so much fiction, from Shelley to Soylent Green? Or is it fiction any more? It is not unreasonable to fear that some perverse medical scientician might create babies deliberately to abort them for their value to “medical science” in order to prolong the lives of those already born (a la The Island).
Generations of leftist utilitarianism and selfish hedonism have left millions of people, probably a large majority of the population, so morally enervated as to be either too apathetic to care, or perfectly satisfied with this kind of butchery if it helps them:
It is so casually gruesome as to be beyond words like chilling and terrifying. I don’t have so much problem with an adult making a conscious decision to donate their body, post-death, to science, but this is entirely different. If a sufficient market were to exist, it is entirely possible babies are already being created deliberately to be destroyed. I’m surprised there aren’t calls to try raise up frozen embryos for such a demonic purpose – or if it isn’t already occurring on the QT.
This treatment of human beings as objects to be used rather than infinitely priceless images of God worthy of all respect and dignity in their own right is a direct consequence of centuries of endarkenment anti-Catholic rationalism and materialism. This rationalism completely forsakes Christian decency and instead posits a “might makes right” philosophy upon the world, where the strong and healthy can dictate to the sick and weak their worth. It is the direct antithesis of the Christian ethos. And it will continue to grow far, far worse without a mass cultural conversion.
I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, in a very real sense, this manner in which people feel free to use and abuse others to their own ends – be it a mom killing her child, or a government deciding caring for elderly is too expensive and killing them off, or a company purchasing frozen embryos to later harvest for parts – will eventually lead to the reinstitution of slavery. That is the inevitable end result of this use of people as objects playing out. It may take a while, but if we continue on this road, I’m convinced that it will happen, perhaps under a different name, but it will happen.
Thus, the glories of the deliberately anti-Catholic enlightenment. It’s almost like God is trying to send us a message……”this is very wrong, this is destructive, this will cause massive suffering and even civilizational death.” But very few have ears to hear anymore. May God have mercy on us.

For folks like you and me, more evidence that Banned Parenthood is a totally amoral organization dedicated to nothing but baby slaughter and the profit it derives therefrom is, I know, like making a declaration that rain is wet. But there are many folks out there who still do not get it, who have bought PP’s slick PR packaging regarding “choice” and “women’s health.” So whenever a new bit of damning evidence is revealed that can help show the world just what a demonically monstrous organization Planned Barrenhood is, I will always try to do my small part to help make even one more soul aware of this diabolical reality.
In the latest revelations, another top Planned Barrenhood official haggles over the price of aborted baby parts, adding to the earlier admission by another official that PB affiliates are happy to turn a little profit on the sale of these parts.
A second video allegedly showing a senior Planned Parenthood official negotiating for fetal tissue and fetal parts for profit has been released.
In the video, released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), Dr. Mary Gatter, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s for-profit Medical Directors’ Council, is seen haggling over prices of fetal parts.
When Gatter initially asked for $75 per part, the undercover investigators countered with $100 — which Gatter readily accepted. These negotiations came after Gatter said she didn’t want to make an opening offer because “in negotiations, the person who throws out the first figure is at a loss, right?””I don’t want to lowball,” she said moments later. Towards the end of the video, Gatter jokes that she “wants a Lamborghini.”
Gatter also said that “we’re [Planned Parenthood] not in it for the money, and we don’t want to be in a position of being accused of selling tissue and stuff like that.”
The Planned Parenthood Federation of America is a non-profit organization. Gatter is a director for the Pasadena, California branch of the non-profit, as well as the director for the for-profit arm. [Conflict of interest? And given the fungibility of money, how separate really are the finances of these “non-profit” and for-profit divisions? According to some ex-PBers, not very.]
At one point in the video, Gatter says she “would not object to asking Ian, who’s our surgeon who does the cases,” if he would allow clinics to violate “the protocol” Planned Parenthood uses with regards to how abortions are done.
Gatter said it was “kind of a specious little argument” to hold to protocol on how an abortion is done.
After CMP’s release of a video last week showing Planned Parenthood’s senior medical services director lightly chatting about fetal part harvesting over a meal, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said that CMP had misrepresented Planned Parenthood’s fetal harvesting processes.
……..despite Planned Parenthood’s claims of innocence, the organization is “refusing to produce Dr. Nucatola for the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s” investigation. “She admitted to using partial-birth abortions [PBA] — which [Planned Parenthood] has yet to address a week later — and indicated affiliates would be happy to ‘do a little better than break even’ on fetal tissue sales.”
“PBA and profiting off of baby parts are both highly illegal and it’s not surprising PPFA will say anything to try to get away from those charges,” [Yes, but will Congress have the will to find PP in contempt of Congress and impose a prison sentence for that effect. That would be a political football and the media would go bananas, spinning Congress’ enforcement of the law into another aspect of the “war on women.” Like all things left wing, the “war on women” is an inversion of the truth and a projection of their own constant maltreatment of women as sexual objects to be used and dropped, with abortion as the backstop when contraception inevitably fails. Leftism/sexular paganism have done more to lower women’s true dignity, happiness, and sense of fulfillment than any fever dreams about “patriarchy.”]
Planned Barrenhood has engaged their media allies in a full-bore press to try to cast doubt on these revelations, which would seem to indicate an organization that, as we already knew, breaks federal and state law as a matter of course. They have played a clever rhetorical game by claiming that the vids are “heavily edited,” while never stating that the videos have somehow misconstrued reality. Thus, they maintain plausible deniability against libel, while also planting in soft minds that the “heavily edited” aspect means they are somehow unauthentic. But any 2 hour video pared down to 10 minutes is by definition “heavily edited,” but that doesn’t mean the content it does reveal is in any less valid. Nevertheless, this “editing” claim has been the linchpin of Banned Parenthood’s media strategy.
The media has largely ignored this story, or taken Planned Barrenhood’s line. So it’s largely up to new media to try to get this information in front of as many people as possible. We were over at Birth Choice crisis pregnancy center this morning, which is of course right next to Curtis Boyd’s Southwest Baby Abattoir. The place was packed. It seems even with the closure of three mills in recent months (thanks to HB2) the others are able to take up most, if not all, of the slack. It’s a regular assembly line of murder over there. But what always gets me with those places is the darkness that surrounds them. Watching people go in is like watching souls fall into a black hole.
Planned Barrenhood provides the vital political cover and media spin for all mills, not just its own. If they were to go down, it would gravely wound the entire abortion cause. One would think after all the scandals, all the revelations over the past few years, there would be such an outcry they would have ceased to exist by now. There simply hasn’t been sufficient outrage and scandal in enough people to bring that about. The media burying all these stories has been the vital factor keeping that outrage from developing.
A lot of people have a lot to answer for, no?

The State Department has signaled quite strongly that they will not be establishing special visas for Christians facing extermination in the Mideast. That this extermination is a direct result of disastrous US policy, which has caused the murder or flight of millions of Christians from their 2000 year old homeland, apparently has left them unmoved. Or, is this simply yet another instance of this administration’s blatant disregard, or even hostility, towards Christians?

The U.S. State Department may have sent a signal to an Anglican bishop in Iraq that despite persecution and harassment from the terror group known as ISIS, Christians in that country will not find any support from the United States government. (Photo via Gospel Herald)
According to Faith J.H. McDonnell of Philos Project, the Rt. Rev. Julian M. Dobbs, bishop of the Diocese of CANA East (Convocation of Anglicans in North America), revealed that part of U.S. foreign policy during an interaction with the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM). Dobbs made his case to the State Department on behalf of a group of Assyrian Christians who are desperate to leave northern Iraq.
“There is no way that Christians will be supported because of their religious affiliation,” the State Department said.
McDonnell reported that the Assyrian Christians received both the permission and blessing from their own bishop to leave Iraq. Until recently, church leaders in the region have urged Christians to stay in the Middle East; now they have concluded that their chances of survival are much better if they left.
Christianity in Iraq is going through one of its worst and hardest stages of its long history, which dates back to the first century,” Archbishop Bashar Warda of Erbil said. “Throughout all these long centuries, we have experienced many hardships and persecutions, offering caravans of martyrs. Yet 2014 brought the worst acts of genocide against us in our history.”
Warda added that “Christianity as a religion and as a culture from Mesopotamia [ancient Iraq]” now faced “extinction” due to the ongoing threat posed by ISIS…….
……“Donors in the private sector have offered complete funding for the airfare and the resettlement in the United States of these Iraqi Christians that are sleeping in public buildings, on school floors, or worse,” McDonnell wrote. “But the State Department—while admitting 4,425 Somalis to the United States in just the first six months of 2015, and possibly even accepting members of ISIS through the Syrian and Iraqi refugee program, all paid for by tax dollars, told Dobbs that they ‘would not support a special category to bring Assyrian Christians into the United States.’”
McDonnell contended that the United States government made it clear religious affiliation does not mean support for Christians in the region in the form of asylum.
“The State Department, the wider administration, some in Congress and much of the media and other liberal elites insist that Christians cannot be given preferential treatment,” McDonnell wrote.
No no, of course not. The ONLY impermissible religion to our self-anointed, increasingly satanic “elites” is the very Christianity the vast majority of them have rejected. Quite an interesting psychological paradigm playing out, I’d say. Persecution generated by self-loathing and lingering doubts over rejecting the God who made them.
But to take that hatred to the extent that it is formal policy not only to block the very Christians being slaughtered and veritably wiped out of their ancestral home – as a direct result of US actions! – but to freely admit muslim radicals to this country in their thousands, who then turn around and slaughter Americans, is so asinine as to be diabolical. This is beyond leftist shibboleths, and entering into the territory of self-hatred so strong it seeks its own destruction. It is deliberate cultural suicide. And it is being orchestrated by those people who constantly look down their noses at us (if not far worse) as our betters.
Lord have mercy on us. The extreme disorder built into this country at its founding (not being founded visibly with God as its Head) is manifesting itself, inevitably, in these final days as the antithesis of rightly ordered Christian government it always was. So the Christian becomes the scapegoat for every evil and the target of every persecution.
Again, Lord have mercy on us. We are sheep without a shepherd in a land of hatred and immorality.
Pray for the Iraqi and Syrian Christians! Fifteen years ago there were millions of Christians in those lands, today, those numbers have been reduced by 2/3 or more. A deliberate program of genocide is being carried out to sweep away the last vestiges of Christianity from the reason in which it was founded. This is a direct attack on our very identity as Christians.
