Please pray for the Syrian Christians (and Iraqi, and Egyptian, and……), and help them if at all possible. Some recent demonic atrocities from the “religion of peace,” via Vox:
The sick jihadis killed children, the eldest was just four years old, in an industrial dough kneader in the Syrian town of Duma.
In a chilling testimony, one Syrian woman spoke of “Christians being killed and tortured, and of children being beheaded in front of their parents.”
Speaking to Dr Yvette Isaac, from advocacy charity Roads to Success, Alice Assaf said: “Our neighbour came in and said: ‘Umm Issa, they have taken many girls about 300 girls. They were taken to Duma. Many of them were Christians and few were Alawites.
“At the bakery, there were six young people who were working there. We knew them. They were burned in the oven, six well-framed men.
“Then there were 250 children. They were put in the dough mixer, they were kneaded. The oldest one of them was four-years-old.”
As well as dealing with ISIS, Duma has been the site of bloodshed and violence as the city has found itself at the heart of the Syrian civil war.
The brutal killings were highlighted by Congleton MP Fiona Bruce before Parliament.
Recounting Dr Isaac’s testimony, Mrs Bruce said: “She showed us recent film footage of herself talking with mothers–more than one– who had seen their own children crucified.
“She told us of a mother with a two-month-old baby. When Daesh knocked at the front door of her house and ordered the entire family out, she pleaded with them to let her collect her child from another room.
“They told her, ‘No. Go. It is ours now.’”
The horrific killings comes as ISIS continues to wipe out Christians in the Middle East, targeting believers in Iraq and Syria.
The report, by charity Open Doors UK, found Christians in the region have been taken hostage, church leaders assassinated, homes and businesses destroyed and women and girls raped and forced into sexual slavery.
ISIS terrorists took the Christian town of al-Qaryatain, Syria in August 2015, trapping the town’s 300 Christians and murdering 20 who tried to escape.
Christians returning to the town, which has been liberated by rebel forces, have found their homes and businesses reduced to rubble and landmines left by ISIS littering the town.
Before 2011, Syrian Christians numbered about eight per cent of the population of 22million. [Other data indicate it was more like 12-15%, numbering around 3 million]
Today about half are believed to have left the country. [Thus Christians are being finally and completely driven from our ancestral homeland, where Christians have lived for 2000 years, 600 years longer than any muslim. Indeed, the name “Christian” was created in Antioch in Syria]
Chilling. Christians, crushed between the vice of islam on the one hand and progressive meddling on the other.
As Vox Cantoris notes in several other posts, the United States government under Barack Hussein Obama is directly responsible for this ongoing genocide and cavalcade of unending, nightmarish atrocities. It was Obama who gave the green light for Syrians to rebel against Assad, and to Turkey to fund and arm them. It is Obama who has made practically every single possible error that could be made surrounding this hellish, unending conflict. It is Obama who is flirting with world war by antagonizing Russia as much as humanly possible, not only in Syria but in Ukraine and elsewhere.
The way things have developed, it’s almost as if Obama wanted to turn some of the most important countries in the Mideast over to the most radical muslims (go figure, from our first muslim president). Certainly he tried, but fortunately failed, so far, in Egypt. He largely succeeded in Libya. In Syria, he ran into a lot more opposition than he expected, and continues to not comprehend that, with Russian support, Assad is very unlikely to be removed from power. Now the best thing for the West (especially the US) to do is to focus on the real enemy (ISIS) or totally disengage. What the Syrian people, especially the few remaining Christians, need most at this time is not saber rattling or geo-political gamesmanship but the quickest end to the war possible. I pray the next president has the wisdom to stop trying to play god and meddling in the affairs of nations everywhere and terminates all these endless and totally fruitless wars*.
*- I’m okay with continuing efforts against ISIS if those efforts are done seriously and with a clear objective, and not the pretend war Obama’s been fighting for the last two years, spending billions of dollars burning up aircraft hours boring holes in the sky and dropping maybe one or two bombs a day on camel herds.

Feature, or bug? This is the entirely natural, predictable, and even just outcome to hideously amoral behaviors grounded in an ideology of boundless effrontery towards God and His moral order. God allows the natural (and supernatural) consequences of our actions to be both our rewards and our punishments. These consequences are plainly spelled out in Scripture and the natural law. Conduct your life in a hedonistic, animalistic manner, and this is the natural result: sky-high rates of disease, some of them incurable, and biased amongst the youngest populations.
Of course, the article waits until the umpteenth paragraph to tell us that, surprise!, much of this increase is centered in the growing men who have sex with men population, where rates of infection for very serious and increasingly difficult to treat diseases like syphilis and gonorrhea have exploded. That kind of information is still judged unhelpful to the ongoing re-paganization of the culture and the destruction of the moral order:
More cases of sexually transmitted diseases were reported last year than ever before, federal officials said Wednesday — just as state and local health departments that could help fight them lose funding.
More than 1.5 million people were reported with chlamydia, the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.
The CDC recorded nearly 400,000 cases of gonorrhea and nearly 24,000 cases of syphilis.
“The STD epidemic is getting worse in the United States and, in fact, is at its highest levels yet,” said Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention.
The CDC reported a record year for STDs in 2014, also, but the trend is worsening, Mermin told NBC News.
“Last year was the first year that we saw increases but those increases are actually continuing and at a higher rate,” Mermin said.
The new numbers translate to a 19 percent increase in syphilis cases, a 13 percent rise in gonorrhea and a 6 percent increase in chlamydia, Mermin said………
…….Gay and bisexual men account for many of the new cases, and the biggest numbers are among young adults, especially those in their late teens and early 20s. “Half of all STDs occur in youth under age 20,” Mermin said……….
………Congenital syphilis cases hit a record high in 2015, CDC said. More than 430 babies were born with syphilis. “Up to 40 percent of babies born to women with untreated syphilis may be stillborn, or die from the infection as a newborn,” the CDC said.
- Belittle and attack Christianity, especially Catholicism, for generations
- At the same time, exalt the idea of fornication, adultery, serial divorce and remarriage, concubinage, etc., as either no big deal, or some wonderful, adventurous “phase” at least everyone, especially while young, should go through, if not the absolute preferred mode of living for all time
- Complete destruction of adherence to religious precepts and the moral law. Force religion from the public square.
- Spread indoctrination in the libertine lifestyle to younger and younger ages – deliberately propagandize schoolchildren into the sexular pagan ethos
- Exalt perversion as superior to traditional morality. Mock traditional morality at all turns.
- Constantly deride recalcitrant adult authority figures who counsel chastity, modesty, and decency, be they parents, grandparents, politicians, religious figures, etc. Make clear that all the cool people are addicted to uninhibited rutting; even more, make clear that in order to be cool you have to do same. Make being perceived as “cool” the height of social existence
- After decades of the above, express shock and dismay when rates of STDs among schoolchildren, the target audience all along, skyrocket. Demand absolutely no changes to the above program but more and more money for it. After all, it’s working like a charm.
Feature. Definitely feature, especially since several of the diseases skyrocketing have the side-“benefit” of rendering the afflicted individual sterile for life. Win-win to the child-hating, Christ-hating sexular pagan left.
Nashville bishop David Choby must be thoroughly pleased.

You folks know I have made clear, I am not a big conspiracy theorist. I guess I’ve lived a sheltered life, but I just now stumbled on this 16 year old video of Alex Jones and this place called Bohemian Grove in northern California, where Repubnik big wigs have met for over a century to hobnob, make plans, decide the world’s future, and, oh, by the say, partake in what sure looks like satanic sacrifice. Reagan, Hoover, both Bushes, Colin Powell, Dick Cheney, Nixon, Eisenhower, all went there, though apparently Nixon did not like the place.
This sicko druidic/devlish/satanic ceremony starts about 55 minutes in, but the whole things is worth a watch. I’ve never been a big fan of Jones or his schtick, but this is pretty good investigative journalism. Even if the highest up attendees didn’t think they were participating in a pagan sacrifice, isn’t it just plain bizarre enough to say “no thanks” to any kind of return visit?!!! Yet most of these guys go multiple times.
The implications are more than ominous. This would, in fact, explain everything. I have known Jones to say the New World Order types are into really sick stuff……..this is the first real bit of evidence I’ve seen. One thing I can say for certain, this is not Catholic or Christian. I would think any convicted Christian would be at least very much concerned and put off by this kind of stuff. But it seems our ruling elites of the supposed party of goodness have been steeped in it for a century or so.
This is some messed up stuff. I’m not sure I got the evidence of supposed human sacrifice taking place that Jones claimed, but it was definitely perverse, pagan, and far from Christian.
If this is what the Repubniks do, can you imagine what the demonrats get up to? I tell you, this is beyond disturbing, as I said, it explains pretty much everything, if this is what our perverse “elites” are into.
It seems to clearly indicate why this country’s government and culture have veered so profoundly pagan and anti-Christian. What else would one expect with the highest of the high taking part in this kind of thing?!?

What happens when the left seizes all the levers power? Supposedly sacrosanct rights like free speech, not “given” by the Constitution but only recognized there as inalienable because they come from God, suddenly go out the window. California, which over the past 15-20 years has seen a shift from a fairly divided conservative/liberal state to an overwhelmingly leftist one, has declared free speech to be illegal, if it happens to embarrass an important member of the Leftist coalition. In fact, Planned Barrenhood may well be the most important member, the lynch pin that holds the entire sexular pagan ethos together by permitting their hedonist lifestyle through destruction of “unfortunate accidents.” To embarrass Banned Parenthood now through expose videos is a felony offense in the idiot state:
In signing a bill that criminalizes the distribution of a “confidential” video of a “health-care provider,” Gov. Jerry Brown has at least dispensed with the notion that California’s Democratic leadership cares at all about free-speech rights. The new law, which could lead to jail time for violators, is the latest troubling example of how tenuous America’s political rights may be when one political party controls virtually every apparatus of power. [They won’t be tenuous. They’ll be non-existent]
Assembly Bill 1671 is a direct response to an activist group that last year released disturbing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials who were, according to a July 2015 report in the Washington Post, “discussing in graphic detail how to abort a fetus to preserve its organs for medical research — as well as the costs associated with sharing that tissue with scientists.” [No, how to make a profit on the satanic practice]
Planned Parenthood’s defenders claim the video was “doctored” and deny any illegal profit-seeking, but it’s clear why abortion’s defenders would like to put the kibosh on video recordings that discuss this gruesome business in anything but euphemistic terms. [They were not “doctored,” or edited, in any significant way. All the core claims of CMP were more than amply proven by video after video after video]
…..After the video’s release, California Attorney General Kamala Harris, our likely next U.S. senator, rebuked Republican legislators’ calls to look into Planned Parenthood’s practices. However, she quickly launched an investigation of the Center for Medical Progress to see if the pro-life activists broke any laws in their recordings, after Democratic members of Congress urged her to do so. [This is exactly the kind of behavior one expects in a thugocracy or one party state. Radically different standards of treatment for different people, depending on whether they are perceived allies or enemies. However, the Left never fails to learn that the circle always shrinks, and those on the “inside” today invariably find themselves on the outs tomorrow]
Using a Public Records Act request, the Washington Times recently found that “Officials from… Harris’ office and Planned Parenthood collaborated to draft legislation targeting the pro-life activist whose undercover videos showed officials for the nation’s largest abortion provider discussing the sale of fetal body parts.”…….[Note how Planned Barrenhood also coordinated with the Houston DA’s office to get trumped up charges filed by a corrupt or incompetent grand jury.]
The resulting law was so awful it warranted opposition from the
“pro-choice” [radically pro-abort] American Civil Liberties Union and the Los Angeles Times’ liberal-leaning editorial board. The latter noted it is already illegal to record people without permission, but this bill “ups the ante by making it illegal for the eavesdropper to disclose or distribute… what that person heard or recorded, if the victim is any type of healthcare provider.” That would outlaw “not just sensitive details about patients, but also private conversations about fees and billing practices, drug marketers, or plans for the weekend. Why a healthcare provider merits special protection… is mystifying.”………
………..California’s governor and legislators clearly want to stop embarrassing reporting on a taxpayer-supported organization that provides “services” that remain a contentious matter of political debate. It’s shocking, actually, given the First Amendment is about protecting political speech. Such efforts have become increasingly common. That’s especially true when it comes to abortion, which at the current rate may be the last “constitutional” right left in California. [Indeed. The actual enumerated rights – which again, only recognizes what each person has from God as free gift and has nothing to do with governmental benefice – are being steadily eroded into nothingness, which made-up rights like abortion are viewed as completely sacrosanct]
Last week, the federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeal upheld Assembly Bill 775. Gov. Brown signed the so-called “Reproductive FACT Act” last year. It forces private pro-life counseling centers that help pregnant women carry their unborn children to term to also provide information on how to obtain an abortion. Organizations that exist primarily to help stop abortions now have to provide information that goes against their core principles. [And if Hillary wins, we can be sure this ruling will be upheld. This is what a satanic country looks like]
There’s a lot more at the link. California is making it very plain they have no desire for anyone with unpopular opinions living in that state. It is amazing how far California has fallen from a constested left-right state in the early 90s to an impregnable bastion of hyper-aggressive leftism today. And, it plainly shows how this nation will very rapidly devolve should the demonrats gain a stranglehold on power at the federal level, which they very nearly will have with a Hillary win (because even if the Repubnik’s keep the Congress, they have shown themselves to be utterly ineffectual in opposition. Heck, most of the time, the happily go along with the leftist agenda.
I think commenter PF was right……..we may be lucky to turn out as well as Zimbabwe.

Yes, the cases really into the quadrillions.
Two episodes reveal the insane hatred being directed at young men on today’s college campuses. One is so filthy I can scarcely mention it. The first is really the more terrifying, however, because it is so insidious – young men must now, on many college campuses, and as the first order of business, be indoctrinated in an ideology that teaches them to loath themselves for nothing more than an accident of birth, the kind of thing the evil left once lectured us was possibly the worst thing in the universe to do to someone. Now colleges are literally returning to segregated facilities on campus – can you guess who will get the separate but unequal facilities in this new regime?
But regarding males, the overwhelming message received is – better be trans, queer, or femboi, because we have no room for masculinity on campus:
Gettysburg College freshman James Goodman began his first moments of higher education by being lectured by campus leaders about “toxic masculinity,” he tells The College Fix in an interview.
Students who “identify as male” were shown a docudrama film about masculinity. The film, titled “The Mask You Live In,” was part of the lessons warning students that the notion of masculinity comes with harmful side effects, he said.
According to the trailer of the film, it teaches that the “three most destructive words” a boy can hear growing up is “be a man.” Experts quoted therein also suggest that violent outbursts are prompted by masculinity pressures because “respect is linked to violence.”……
…….Psychiatrist Dr. James Gilligan added “whether it’s homicidal violence or suicidal violence, people resort to such desperate behavior only when they are feeling shame or humiliated, or feel they would be if they didn’t prove that they were real men.” [Yeah, that woman who shot the man trying to bust into her house was just feeling so much shame and humiliation, that’s the reason she resorted to “homicidal violence.” Only an academic could be this stupid]
Next followed humiliating, childish exercises dedicated to reinforcing the message of inequality received:
……..The next activity asked the male students to put green, yellow or red dot stickers on pictures of various popular culture images. The green dot was intended to symbolize something good and acceptable, yellow was more moderate, and red as completely inappropriate and unacceptable behavior………
………“The entire movie and lesson made it seem like masculinity was an unacceptable human trait. That it’s something males should avoid. It was completely pointless. It did nothing to help anyone. I got absolutely nothing out of the experience, other than a headache,” Goodman said to The College Fix. [Perhaps you were lucky. But in this age where so few kids have a strong enough upbringing and the self-confidence that goes with it, how many will be led into self-hatred by this kind of brainwashing?]
The second example is as stultifying as it is prurient. Stupid campus feminists at stupid Northwestern University created a stupid, 20 ft tall likeness of the female sexual organ and held some demonstration. I edit a lot of the below for content, I include no link because it would be irresponsible to do so:
Hundreds of students marched through a 20-foot-tall inflatable [simulacrum of the female organ] at The Arch on Friday afternoon following the unveiling of [redacted]. [It was a really bad simulacrum. Most had no idea what it was]
Student organizers hung the purple [simulacrum of the female organ] from The Arch for students and community members to interact with. Spectators watched, took photos with and walked through the open [simulacrum of the female organ], which hung on display for more than two hours.
Organizers said they wanted students to form their own interpretations of the piece and declined further comment on [this demonstration of a toddler’s fascination with its body parts].
For many students, [this demonstration of a toddler’s fascination with its body parts] served as a statement about the perception of [simulacrum of the female organ] in society.
“[Female organs] carry a lot of shame in our society,” Weinberg senior Ary Hansen said. “It’s a statement about equality and about [female organ] pride.”
I literally can’t quote anymore. This is bad enough.
I’m so glad that people are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to have their 18 year old children turned into potty mouthed pre-schoolers. When will this, the major vehicle for the advance of the sexular pagan epidemic in our culture, be destroyed and re-founded along classical lines.
I shan’t hold my breath.

I’ll take muslim Immigration for $500, Alex. The native birthrate continues to plummet to less than one child per woman. A slight acquaintance of mine who lives near Freiburg was regarded as crazy by her peers for having THREE children. What was she thinking, what with carbon emissions and global warming and starving kids in Africa and Oktoberfest and TV shows and contraception and laziness? But while German woman have one or zero kids each, enough muslims have been invited to occupy the country, and have enough babies, that the overall “German” birth rate has gone up significantly in recent years. Which is pretty much the leftist plan all along – if the electorate you have won’t give you what you want, import a new electorate.
The only silver lining is that muslim birth rates are also collapsing, and second-third generation muslims in Western countries tend to have birth rates only slightly higher than the death wish native populations. Still, cold comfort to a Europe rapidly islamizing:
east one Western European country’s birthrate has shot above replacement level, only it’s not because Germans finally had a newfound appreciation for fertility.
According to Reuters, the wave of Middle Eastern migrants into Deutschland has led the German birthrate to its highest level in 33 years.
The rate was 1.5 births per woman in 2015, up from 1.47 births a year earlier, and the highest figure since 1982 when it was 1.51. It was also the highest rate recorded since the 1990 reunification of east and west Germany.
Years of economic growth and government support have helped raise the birthrate in Germany. But the figure is still below the 2.0 births per woman that demographers define as the minimum fertility rate needed to ensure a population replaces itself.
Western Europe has some of the world’s lowest birthrates, outdone only by Japan with a staggeringly low birthrate of 1.41. In Germany, twenty-eight percent of the German people are aged 60 years or over, with the second largest middle-aged population.
In countries like Italy, the low birthrate of 1.41 has become such a problem that government sponsored PSA’s were launched hoping to entice citizens into having more children. Of course, this move severely angered the country’s child-hating feminists, who began decrying the campaign as a return to Mussolini fascism.
Is there anything feminists don’t hate, including themselves? As a tradition-embracing Catholic blogger, I complain a lot – no, it’s true – but sheesh I cannot imagine how miserable these women must be to constantly carp and bitch and whine and scream about every. little. thing. that. comes. along. Without babies, a country’s economy and then its culture will implode. But don’t dare even hint what a woman might do with her private parts, besides sterilizing them and allowing them to be used by any Tom, Dick, Jane, or Harry for 15 minutes of instantly regretted, soul-crushing “fun.” Because that’s “empowering,” which is why so many young ladies today are cutters, doped to high heaven on powerful psychoactives, or have just plain gone nuts.
Ah, yes, the alternative to the patriarchal society God-instituted by design, knowing human nature incomparably better than we ever could. So awesome!
How much do these endlessly obtuse feminists think people are going to care about women’s rights when we’re back at a 17th century level existence (if we’re lucky) following a general societal collapse brought on by death-spiral birth rates? Of course, I give them too much credit, they never think, just emote.
Still screaming at dad for ruining her life because he wouldn’t hand over the car keys.

Hard to believe the evil creation of the diabolical Margaret Sanger has been around 100 years. It shows how long the several decay in moral standards in our culture goes back. It is also interesting to contemplate where Sanger first got radicalized – the women’s suffrage movement – and the inseparable ties between that movement and attacks on the moral order. There really was then, and remains today (far more so), a desire to destroy the Christian moral order and upend patriarchy. What evil hath been wrought to this end is beyond human comprehension:
As this month marks Planned Parenthood’s 100th anniversary, we should pause and consider its destructive legacy.
Founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger in 1916, what is now known as the Planned Parenthood Federation of America began as a small birth control clinic in New York City. Sanger was motivated by her belief that artificial birth control and eugenics would “assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit,” including “morons” and “various criminal types” who “populate the slums.”
Today, Planned Parenthood affiliates operate over 650 clinics across the country and the organization is America’s leading abortion provider, performing 324,000 abortions last year, which works out to about one abortion every 98 seconds.
Over 57 million abortions have been performed in the United States in the years leading up to and following the tragic Roe v. Wade decision by an activist Supreme Court. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has worked tirelessly to make abortion the cornerstone of Sanger’s legacy. What is that legacy?
- Fighting parental notification laws that protect children who seek abortions.
- Advocating for taxpayer-funded abortion in the United States and overseas. [Now the official position of the demonrat party]
- Attacking life-affirming pregnancy resource centers that provide humane abortion alternatives.
- Opposing laws guaranteeing informed consent for women seeking abortions.
- Opposing partial-birth abortion bans.
- Opposing bans on sex-selective abortion.
- Opposing laws that protect children that survive abortions.
- Opposing commonsense health and safety standards for abortion facilities.
- Using its 501(c)(4) advocacy arm to spend $30 million electing pro-abortion politicians to public office. [a few more: covering up child sex abuse, covering up sex trafficking of minors and adults, condoning and covering up sexual slavery, performing abortions on minors without parental notification, etc., etc. This is the locus of demonic sacrifice that gives supernatural impetus to the general attack on the moral order]
Planned Parenthood purports to provide a wide range of health care, but its own data reveals that it is a profit-driven, abortion-centric organization.
……….Despite its leading position in the abortion industry, Planned Parenthood continues to receive hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars through grants and reimbursements every year. Planned Parenthood’s most recent annual report reveals it received over $550 million from taxpayers last year alone.
Hillary desires to increase that to up to nearly $1 billion by the end of her first term. Planned Barrenhood then turns around and uses federal tax dollars – your money, and mine – to attack its opponents and aggressively advocate not only for abortion but for an whole swath of gravely immoral programs, from the indoctrination of children into perversion and degrading practices, to “free” contraception. And all along, they work feverishly with groups like Komen to keep the extremely strong links between chemical birth control/abortion use and various deadly cancers under wraps. Why do you think Banned Parenthood utterly freaked out when Komen tried to cut off funds in 2012? It wasn’t because they were overly afraid it would lead to a stampede of de-funding, but because cutting that tie could have permitted Komen to start to publicize this well known, if deeply memory-holed, link.

As if that’s a surprise. A rash of releases of e-mails from longtime Clinton confidante John Podesta’s personal e-mail reveal the depth of the hatred in which Clintonistas hold Catholics, especially the loathed and feared “conservative Catholics” (by which they mean faithful, non-bastardized katholycs), while also revealing just how completely franked so many leftist’s understanding of the Faith is. That last bit is hardly a surprise, leftists create an entire mental universe based on a fantastic melange of their ideology and perverse caricatures of the object loathed. It’s one and the same, from “an amazing bastardization of the faith” below, to “promethean neo-pelagians” from other quarters.
And away we go into the depths of leftist lunacy:
Ken Auletta’s latest piece on Murdoch in the New Yorker starts off with the aside that both Murdoch and Robert Thompson, managing editor of the WSJ, are raising their kids Catholic. Friggin’ Murdoch baptized his kids in Jordan where John the Baptist baptized Jesus.
Many of the most powerful elements of the conservative movement are all Catholic (many converts) from the SC and think tanks to the media and social groups.
It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy. [As usual left-wingers have everything upside down, inside out, and back to front. It is “Christian democracy,” by which I think we can safely assume they mean liberal khristianity, that is an “amazing bastardization” of the faith. As I related yesterday, liberalism posits an alternate universe where religion is subordinate to so-called science (or sciencism, a form of the over-arching sexular pagan religion) and the whims of always metastasizing leftist ideology. It’s riven with double-think and all manner of other Orwellian overtones. But let’s move on]
…….Jennifer Palmieri then replies:
I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals. [Never even a hint that someone could actually be a convicted Catholic believing all that “bad old stuff” that they try to associate with conservatism, which is actually nothing of the sort, but simply being a faithful Catholic.]
[A final barb from another demonrat dufus]………Excellent point. They can throw around “Thomistic” thought and “subsidiarity” and sound sophisticated because no one knows what the hell they’re talking about.
Speak for yourself. I may not be a hardcore Thomist, but I can recognize the alignment between the Summa and Catholic belief and practice going back to the earliest Church, and carrying forward till at least the early 60s as the dominant theological school of the Church, when it was supplanted by neo-modernism and leftism generally. As for subsidiarity, it’s an amazingly simple concept, keep government at the most local/simplest level possible, demonrats simply hate it because it foils their preferred policy prescriptions.
In all this crap, they don’t err honestly, they are driven to error by their ideology. Subsidiarity isn’t too complex, its annoying and offensive to their core (religious) beliefs. Faithful practice of Catholicism isn’t an “amazing bastardization,” it’s a grave threat to their most cherished beliefs, and so has to be belittled and dismissed.
It’s the same as always with left-wingers, don’t conform thought to an objective standard/reality, make reality conform to preferred thought. It’s terrifying and Orwellian as hell, but it’s also the dominant belief-set of the vast majority of the self-anointed elite in the West and around the world.

At least one was a Catholic church, the others were Baptist and Lutheran. The message was very straightforward: convert, or die:
At least four churches have been tagged by vandals in the past week, according to two people KSAT spoke to on Monday.
One of the churches hit on Monday was Gethsemane Lutheran Church.
The bold black letters were posted at the church’s front entrance. The hate-filled message read “No To Wall, Islam or Die,” and was followed by a symbol.
Pastor Eric Miletti believes it could be a symbol of terrorism.
“The only thing that comes close to that, and again I’m not an expert, is the terror flag of the Islamic State,” Miletti said.
The same symbol was found just over a mile away at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church.
“It’s a very sad day. People come here to worship in freedom and I’m sure the people that did this want to worship in freedom as well. There’s not a problem worshiping your freedom, just don’t tag my church,” said parishioner Mike Aleman.
The Church – or the faithful – continue to be squeezed between the inexorable force of sexular paganism and the immovable object of islam. They are largely left abandoned by their shepherds in facing this virtually unprecedented twin persecution.
This type of behavior – and far worse – is not at all surprising. This is how islamists behave wherever they exist in large enough numbers to develop some confidence that they can get away with such acts. As Winston Churchill – a man who had extensive, up-close experience in dealing with islamist militants from the Malakand Pass to the Upper Nile – said, the mohammadan is either at your throat or at your feet. Pithy, but true. Today, such sentiments are liable to get one labeled a deplorable.
It is exactly such sentiments, a forbidden zone placed around thought judged impertinent by the cultural elites, that explain why the West is in retreat virtually everywhere before the forces of islam. The Church, which should be leading the resistance, is almost totally AWOL.
Absent worthy shepherds, are best recourses are prayer and resignation to God’s will.
Amazingly, it seems the media is trying to blame this outrage on Trump. That tells us a great deal more about the media than it does Trump and his supporters. There is no lie the media will not tell to get the haggard witch elected. The next post will make that even more clear.

As if we needed more confirmation that the supposedly sacrosanct “separation of church and state” was really just “get out Christofascists” all along, this report from Oregon that the Parkrose PUBLIC school district have approved the opening of a “satanist club” for children aged 4-12 at Sacramento Elementary School (blaspheming the Blessed Sacrament, of course the satanists would push to have this fireball nightmare evil be first installed there):
The first “After School Satan Club” has just received approval to operate at Sacramento Elementary School in Portland, Oregon. According to The Oregonian, the Satan Club will begin activities on October 19, 2016.
The Satanic Temple wants to open at least nine Satan Clubs, which would expose young and impressionable children, ages 4 to 12, to the greatest possible spiritual danger — the destructive influence of Hell.
These After School Satan Clubs propose to teach children to:
- Deny the existence of God
- Reject the idea of eternal punishment for evil or reward for good
- Foster unconcern for sin and Hell
- Replace Christian charity with atheistic humanitarianism
- Oppose Christian clubs in public schools
There are in Oregon some after-school clubs run by evangelicals. Whether this Sacramento Elementary has such a club is uncertain.
But that doesn’t mean that my lede was wrong. There has been a special and particular onus against the presence of Christianity in public schools, whereas other religions such as Mohammadism are given much more latitude. Now satanists get to open a club and try to such children into a life of hatred, self-abuse, and self-degradation few if any will ever recover from. Those sins embraced very early are the most difficult to overcome. Beliefs instilled by authority figures in very young children rapidly form the entire moral-intellectual framework of a child.
God knows what kind of parent would allow their children to be exposed to this, but it’s not a fake. And the satanists are trying to open as many as a dozen such clubs around the country, in particular, along the West Coast where the process of de-Chrisitianization is as advanced as anywhere in the country.
There is a petition you can sign to oppose this, if the Spirit so moves you.
And as a further sign that the forces of darkness continue to gain more and more power over the populace of this nation, and especially its young people, Columbia University is instituting “no whites allowed” leadership retreats. So this is what BLM essentially boils down to? Reverse Jim Crow? Judging by their rhetoric and actions, it would not be completely surprising:
The “Students of Color Leadership Retreat 2016” is open to students within the Columbia University undergraduate community, including its all-women’s Barnard College.
Slated for the weekend of Nov. 12 at Greenkill Retreat Center at the New York YMCA Camp, the event is billed as “an intensive weekend of personal development, empowerment and community building for student leaders at Barnard and Columbia who identify as African/African-American/Black, Latino/Hispanic, Asian/Asian-American, Pacific Islander, Arab and Middle-Eastern, Native & Indigenous, and Multiethnic/Multiracial,” according to the university’s website as well as the retreat’s online application form.
“SOCLR is designed for students who identify themselves as a person of color as a primary identity,” Columbia’s website adds.
The application asks students to state their gender identity/expression, their gender pronoun, their racial identity, and also answer a few questions on what they plan to gain from attending the retreat, paid for by the private, Ivy League institution. Lodging, food and transportation are provided, the application notes………
……..Asked for additional information, such as whether white students may attend…….
The leftist director of multi-culti indoctrination and forming the vanguard of the proletarian revolution issued a stream of never-ending BS that never explicitly said that whites are not allowed to attend but made clear this event is not for them. He then also listed a bewildering array of specialized campus support groups for every conceivable aggrieved minority under the sun (including populations that have very little cause for grievance), but there are of course no such groups for whites and especially white males, who everyone knows are responsible for every conceivable evil in the universe, and without which the earth would instantly revert into a verdant Eden-like paradise.
Yeah baby. Tell me about my privilege. How my great-great paternal grandparents lived in a cave for 20 years while homesteading our farm. How my great-grandfather grew up there breaking new ground with a horse-drawn plow in soil frozen by -10 degree weather. How my daddy grew up without electricity or running water.
