Cdl. McElroy: “It is a demonic mystery of the human soul why so many men and women have a profound and visceral animus toward members of the L.G.B.T. communities.”

No. It’s not demonic. It’s not mysterious.

In response to those who openly practice, approve of and promote such ungodly behavior, it’s perfectly natural, right, just and even, biblical.

Unjust discrimination against homosexuals is prohibited. Human rights violations are prohibited. Charitable treatment is prescribed, as far as is possible, under the circumstances.

The most uncharitable thing we do for such people is to approve/condone their sinful acts and by so doing, confirm them in their sins and scandalize the truly faithful.

From the Douay Catholic Catechism of 1649:

CHAPTER  XX –  The sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance

Q. 925. HOW many such sins are there?
A. Four.

Q. 928. What is the second?

A. The sin of Sodom, or carnal sin against nature, which is a voluntary shedding of the seed of nature, out of the due use of marriage, or lust with a different sex.

Q. 929. What is the scripture proof of this?
A. Out of Gen. xix. 13. where we read of the Sodomites, and their sin. “We will destroy this place because the cry of them hath increased before our Lord, who hath sent us to destroy them,” (and they were burnt with fire from heaven.)

This official teaching of the Catholic Church has never changed.

The Cardinal needs to more carefully read his Bible and his Catechism!

Pope Francis is also totally wrong on this point, as well, when he attempts to create a false dichotomy between grave sin and crime. (link)

God is greatly offended by serious sin. The sin of Sodomy constitutes one of the four most serious crimes against the Holy Name and the supreme dignity of our Creator. This is a much more serious offense than violating any human, legal statute.

Abp. Vigano: In the history of the Church, until Vatican II, it has never happened that a Council could de facto cancel the Councils that preceded it, nor that a “pastoral” Council – Vatican II – could have more authority than twenty dogmatic Councils.

Yet it happened, amidst the silence of the majority of the episcopate and with the approval of five roman pontiffs, from John XXIII to Benedict XVI.

In these fifty years of permanent revolution, no pope has ever questioned the “magisterium” of Vatican II, nor has he dared to condemn its heretical theses or clarify its equivocal ones.

On the contrary, all the popes since Paul VI have made Vatican II and its implementation the programmatic fulcrum of their pontificates, subordinating and binding their apostolic authority to the conciliar diktats.

They have distinguished themselves through a clear distancing from their predecessors and a marked self-referentiality from Roncalli to Bergoglio: their “magisterium” begins with Vatican II and ends there, and the successors proclaim their immediate predecessors as saints for the sole fact of having convoked, concluded, or applied the Council.

Sharing in the Agony: Wherein Catholics choose to suffer; Keeping the faith, in spite of widespread church corruption and scandals.

The key to all of this is Our Lord’s Agony in the Garden.

Note that it is called the AGONY, not “the disappointment” or “when Jesus went to the Garden, sat down and had the sadz for a couple of hours”.

He was in AGONY.

He was in agony as He took upon Himself the sins of the world – ALL OF THEM. Including all of the sodomy, all of the raping and assaulting of seminarians, all of the gay orgies by curial prelates, all of the sodomitical hook-ups in the sacristy of St. Peter’s Basilica, all of the raping of impoverished children by priests and bishops who cover for each other. The demon worship. The ANTIPOPE. All of it.

“Vetted”

The corrupt, weak, misguided clerics currently running the post-Vatican II church are Prodigal Son(s)

By Doug Lawrence

The Parable of the Prodigal Son

Luke 15:11-19  And he said: A certain man had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father: Father, give me the portion of substance that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his substance. And not many days after, the younger son, gathering all together, went abroad into a far country: and there wasted his substance, living riotously. And after he had spent all, there came a mighty famine in that country: and he began to be in want. And he went and cleaved to one of the citizens of that country. And he sent him into his farm to feed swine. And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him. And returning to himself, he said: How many hired servants in my father’s house abound with bread, and I here perish with hunger! I will arise and will go to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and before thee. I am not worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants…

Explanation:

The son who took his inheritance and squandered it is the leadership of the post-Vatican II church, which took 2000 years of superb, faithful Catholic Tradition, Magisterial teaching and authentic, divine worship and squandered it, leaving themselves, the world and the church they lead and govern, in a truly decrepit condition.

The famine is the current, seriously deficient, moral and spiritual condition of the “woke” world, which was wantonly aided and abetted by the irrational exuberance and flawed practices that followed in the wake of the 2nd Vatican Council, which have only become worse, over time.

The confession, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before thee,” is literally true and needs to be accomplished without delay, along with the prompt restoration of all things holy.

Only then might the merry band of corrupt, weak, misguided clerics who are presently running the church into the ground, have any hope of divine forgiveness and absolution and once again be considered loyal “sons” of the church; worthy of the rings they wear.

Should all this, by the grace of God, actually come to pass, I’ll be only too happy to supply a fatted calf (or two) for the big celebration.

How Africa Defeated COVID so Decisively Without Vaccines

Part of the African continent’s success is no doubt due to a fortunate accident of microbiology, infectious diseases, pharmacology and immunology. It so happens that two of the most effective treatments for COVID, ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, are also routine prophylactic weekly medicines throughout equatorial Africa, because they happen to be known for a half-century as the most effective, applicable and safest anti-parasite medications. So the population, particularly through about 31 countries, the tropical middle rectangle roughly, of Africa already were well-equipped prior to COVID events launching in late 2019 to early 2020.

As fortune would have it, the unpatented and relatively inexpensive half-century old drug ivermectin, whose inventors won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2015, also has been the most effective medicine against COVID, [15] due in part to its specific effect against RNA transcriptase, as well as its blocking effect on all three parts of the trimeric spike protein, and other mechanisms.

Hydroxychloroquine is also used widely throughout at least equatorial regions of Africa as a prophylactic against parasites, but which fortunately has now been studied extensively and used successfully as both prevention and treatment of COVID disease, and as inhibitor of SARS-CoV-2 replication and activity. This is shown in over 380 studies conducted in 55 countries.

25 Practical Tips to Help Young Men Mature in Faith & Life

This article is from a chapter in The Mentor’s Handbook: How to Form Boys Into Inspiring and Capable Menwhich is available from Sophia Institute Press.

Tip Number 15: Do not date until you are twenty-one

This dictate usually creates a wildly defensive reaction, until you remind a young man that he has nothing to give a young woman — just yet. If he were to ask me for my daughter, I would ask him, “Who do you think you are?” followed by, “Go make something of yourself and then come back and ask again!”

This, of course, does not mean they must shun the girls or young women in their lives. But they should be encouraged to go on many dates with different women and none exclusively.

Women should be respected, and sexual intimacy should be reserved for marriage.

The time to date exclusively comes after the age of twenty-one. The development of so many young men is arrested when they forsake the program in favor of “hanging out” with their girlfriends at the mall.

Mundabor: Legislative action can only give a legal veneer to absurdity.

So, is Pete Butt Igieg married?

Father Georgina seems very proud of the fact that the law allows him to call himself “married”. To claim otherwise would be, he says, to “ignore reality”.

But.. is it so?

If the law allows me to call myself a “Big Furry Bear”, does this make me a big furry bear? Certainly not! I am not a bear, I am not furry, and I am not even big. I have not become any of those things when I received the official United Clowndom certificate that says that.

Granted, I will have (and that is a fact) the legal position that the lawmaker attributes to a person (who is not a bear, not furry, and not big) calling himself a big furry bear (for example, the right to put on my business card “Mundabor, Big Furry Bear”. But this will not create a reality, it will merely create a legal fiction. There will be no bear, ever.

Excellent spiritual advice from Saint Ephrem

“If the Son of God is within you, then His Kingdom is also within you. Thus, the Kingdom of God is within you, a sinner. Enter into yourself, search diligently and without toil you shall find it. Outside of you is death, and the door to it is sin. Enter into yourself, dwell within your heart, for God is there.”

Newsom Twosome: Siebel Newsom’s Films – Shown In Middle Schools – Feature Porn, Radical Gender Ideologies, And Her California Governor Husband, Gavin

Newsom’s film The Mask You Live In features the website addresses of porn sites including Porn Hub, MassiveCams, BDSM.XXX, and Brazzers.com. The pornographic images displayed in the film are tagged with descriptions such as “domination,” “face fuck,” “kinky couples,” and “…dirty brunettes.”

Newsom included images of naked or mostly naked women being slapped, handcuffed, and brutalized in pornographic videos. The pictures are graphic even when blurred. Screenshots of those scenes can be found HERE (VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED).

These jarring pictures are displayed with their corresponding porn website addresses – providing a roadmap for future exploration. The film seems to justify their harmful content by saying that “34% of youth online receive UNWANTED PORNOGRAPHIC EXPOSURE.”

However, 100% of the youth (or anyone else) receive unwanted or unwarranted pornographic exposure by watching Newsom’s movies.

In 2019, one parent filed a complaint about a screening of The Mask You Live In for his 12-year-old daughter’s class at Creekside Middle School in California. In an interview with The Sacramento Bee the father said,

“Some of the images when slowed down were not blurred, and even when they are blurred, it is obvious what is going on. It is absolutely profane and disgusting.”

Good souls are charitable souls: The Hody Childress story.

About 10 years ago, Childress walked into Geraldine Drugs and asked owner Brooke Walker if there were any families in town who couldn’t afford their medications, according to the Washington Post.

“I told him, ‘Yes, unfortunately, that happens often,’” Walker said. “And he handed me a $100 bill, all folded up.”

Childress told Walker to use it for anyone who couldn’t afford their prescriptions. He said, “Don’t tell a soul where the money came from. If they ask, just tell them it’s a blessing from the Lord.”

The rest of the story

This passage appears to describe someone now living, whom we all know.

“This false prophet possibly at the behest of Antichrist usurps the papal supremacy…His assumed spiritual authority and supremacy over the Church would make him resemble the Bishop of Rome…He would be Pontifex Maximus, a title of the pagan Roman emperors, having supreme spiritual and temporal authority. Assuming authority without possessing it makes him the False Prophet. Does this allude to what our Lord said?

“Though he poses as a lamb, a Christian, his doctrines betray him, for he preaches the doctrines of the dragon. His principles and dogmas to be accepted, his moral and civil law will be of diabolical inspiration. It may be communism, or plain idolatrous paganism; it will comprise emperor-worship and devil-worship coupled with persecution of the true believers. They will know him at once as an imposter and will not be misled. He will be in league with the antichristian world-powers and adopt their principles of government and civil law.”

Rev. Herman Bernard Kramer, “The Book of Destiny” (Belleville, IL: Buechler Publishing Company, 1955), 319. (Commenting on the “Beast out of the Earth” in Revelation)

Today’s “Gem” from Bob Stanley’s “The Catholic Treasure Chest”: Twenty ways various “cults” twist the words of the Bible to suit their own strange teachings.

  1. INACCURATE QUOTATION:
    A biblical text is referred to but is either not quoted in the way the text appears in any standard translation or is wrongly attributed. Example:
    The Maharishi Mahesh Yogi says, “Christ said, ‘Be still and know that I am God.'” Whereas this text is found ONLY in Psalms. (Old Testament)
  2. TWISTED TRANSLATION:
    The biblical text is retranslated, not in accordance with sound Greek scholarship, to fit a preconceived teaching of a cult. Example:
    The Jehovah’s Witnesses translate John 1:1 as “In [the] beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the word was ‘a’ god.”
  3. BIBLICAL HOOK:
    A text of Scripture is quoted primarily as a device to grasp the attention of readers or listeners and then followed by a teaching which is so non biblical that it would appear far more dubious to most people had it not been preceded by a reference to Scripture. Example:
    Mormon missionaries quote James 1:5 which promises God’s wisdom to those who ask him, and then, follow this by explaining that when Joseph Smith did this he was given a revelation from which he concluded that God the Father has a body.

The Biden Administration Finally Admits Its Mistake in Canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline

Released without a formal announcement, the DOE’s report points out that the pipeline would have created between 16,149 and 59,000 jobs and would have had an economic benefit of between $3.4 and 9.6 billion. That’s no small impact. Yet with one stroke of his pen, Biden slashed the project and instead focused his efforts on costly “green energy” goals. As a result of his executive action, 11,000 pipeline workers were promptly laid off and told to “go to work to make solar panels” instead.

First to go woke – first to fail: “Catholic” Novus Ordo evangelization is dead as a doornail.

A nostalgic Francis said that so many things had changed “for the better” in the Church since the failed Vatican II. It is surprising that even for Francis the collapse of the Council Church is a “good thing”.

He claims that “the liturgical effervescence” during the time of Vatican II is now “almost non-existent”. That may be true, since the Novus Ordo is on its last legs.

But he laments that “anti-conciliar resistance” is emerging – as if it is a bad thing that the faithful are waking up in the face of the collapse and clerical delusion of bishops like Francis.

Editor’s note: History repeats itself.

If you are “compassionate” to these people, they will destroy every vestige of Christianity and your freedom, as well.

It is certainly mean to mock a person for something beyond his control, like a big physical deformity he was born with. But mocking someone for his political statements and life choices has always been fair game.

And if I can mock Biden for being an ass, why can I not mock this bigoted freak show for being a bigoted freak show?
