Church Militant scolds “Nobody Goes To Hell” Bishop Robert Barron; Publishes comprehensive list of his fellow “Bad Bishops”.

Fr. Robert Barron

Barron is no intellectual — not by a long shot — even though he plays one on social media. He says what itching ears want to ear among his Church of Nice devotees. He says in this latest pabulum that “certain” websites and social media types are causing division and — wait for it — the bishops have to put an end to it. Ha! You mean, the ones who created the chaos in the first place — those bishops?

When Barron produced his meaningless, self-serving book, Letter to a Suffering Church, it may have been his attempt to declare that, according to Bp. Barron from on High, he had finally pronounced on the sex abuse garbage. And now he had deigned to speak, so the matter is closed. Pay no attention, he tells us, to that homosexual cabal behind the curtain. So much did he not want us to even consider that homosexual clergy are responsible for homosexual assault, that the word “homosexual” appears in the book two times.

And that’s how you know he’s kissing butt on his way up the career ladder — by denying what everyone and their mother and brother already knows, especially the victims of those homopredator clerics. You’re a bad man, Barron — a bad man. Only a bad man would try to advance his career over the broken bodies and souls of teenage boy victims of this evil and have you try to sweep that aspect under the rug. You are complicit, period. And for the record, that’s just the minor victims. All the rest, in seminaries all over the country, get short shrift from Bp. “everyone goes to Heaven” Barron.

So let’s play Barron’s little game with him here, shall we? Let’s talk about the bishops sitting down and making their list of “baddies” on social media.

Pope calls on young people to be the “first missionaries”online and among people of their age

The only thing the Pope forgot is … no one has properly catechized the last several generations of Catholics  … so what message will these young evangelists attach to the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

Odds are only about 50 -50 that it will be the authentic Catholic truth.

Between religious eco-paganism, feminism, Obamaism, all the allegedly Catholic heretics and schismatics, as well as the many different  “flavors” of nonsense served up by our current institutions of higher learning (including Catholic ones) anything is possible.

It’s OK. I’m back.

by Doug Lawrence

I took a week off to move, and it took the better part of that week to get my Internet service back up and running.

Something about software issues … and components that didn’t work well together.

It will be at least a few days before regular postings are resumed.

There’s simply too much moving yet to be done, and too many details that still require attention!

Look for “Moving As A Type of Purgatory … The Biblical Basis for Suffering On-The-Go” coming up soon.

Concerted hacker attack on Vatican website fails

The campaign against the Vatican, which did not receive wide attention at the time, involved hundreds of people, some with hacking skills and some without. A core group of participants openly drummed up support for the attack using YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. Others searched for vulnerabilities on a Vatican Web site and, when that failed, enlisted amateur recruits to flood the site with traffic, hoping it would crash, according to a computer security firm’s report to be released this week.

The attack, albeit an unsuccessful one, provides a rare glimpse into the recruiting, reconnaissance and warfare tactics used by the shadowy hacking collective.

Jesuit priest invented key internet feature, 15 years before it was widely put into use.

Father Busa remained a priest throughout his life. His software research confirmed his faith:

“A mind that knows how to write programs – he liked to remind people – is undoubtedly intelligent. But a mind that knows how to write programs which can write others testifies to a higher level of intelligence.

The cosmos is nothing but a giant computer. The programmer is also the author and the producer of it. We call God a mystery because in our every day doings we cannot meet Him. But the Gospels tell us that two thousand years ago He came down from heaven.”

Exorcist warns parents of rise in ‘demonic’ websites

“What I can tell you is that there are more and more Catholics involved in idolatrous and pagan practices,” he said. “That’s really why there’s more demonic activity. There’s the absence of God in the lives of a lot of people.”

He added: “A lot of parents today have no critical eye of faith with which to even recognise the dangers their children are in. A lot of this is going on with the internet. There are lots and lots of demonic websites.”
