PBS/Frontline “Secrets of the Vatican” show indicts Milwaukee Archdiocese and Cardinal Dolan, but never mentions corrupt homosexual Archbishop Rembert Weakland

Liberals never indict other liberals.

Never!

Even though Arbp.Weakland caused
and presided over virtually the entire,
scandalous mess.

See for yourself.

Editor’s note: I’m no fan of Cardinal Dolan, but he got stuck cleaning up Weakland’s mess and deserved better treatment from Frontline.

Today’s Catholic Church is whatever “they” say it is … until “they” say it’s something else!

…does the Church consider the Second Vatican Council an ecumenical council? What is the authority attributed to it?

The late Melkite Patriarch Maximos V did not, as seen in 30 Days (no. 2, 1997). Maximos declared it “unthinkable” to treat the second millennium “Councils of the Western Church” (!) as a condition for unity with the Orthodox, “including papal infallibility”(!!). And: “…it must be recognized that all the Councils after the first millennium, including Vatican I and II, cannot be described as ecumenical… . The decisions taken in those assizes cannot regard the Eastern Churches which did not participate in them.”

Editor’s note: A funny thing happend on the way to Vatican II: A handful of “token” Protestants showed up, but the bulk of the Eastern Orthodox Churches were either never invited or failed to attend. Hence, the “ecumenical” 2nd Vatican Council turned out to be a lot less all-inclusive and all-embracing than many/some/a select few might want you to believe.

Of course, the liberals/modernists who succesfully hijacked the council are still firmly in charge, and if they say the council was ecumenical, then “ecumenical” it must be!

Having succesfully dispensed with truth, it was then a simple matter to go on to redefine and reinterpret the entire Church – making the Mass, Canon Law, the Sacred Deposit of Faith, the Bible, the Sacraments and even the sanctuaries whatever “they” say they are … sort of like the “New Pentecost” of which the last several popes have spoken – but with man, rather than the Holy Spirit, providing the bulk of the inspiration.

Wouldn’t that be one hell of a turn for a Catholic “ecumenical” council to take?

Is the pope Catholic?

In every dictatorship, the past must be censored. Hence, religious freedom for all – except traditional Catholics!

masstrad

No one must know how it once was before the dictatorship, which always claims to give new life to the world. And the dictatorships of the “liberals” are the worst and have always been the worst.

When the schema of a dictatorship enters the Church, the censorship of the past is almost a dogma: “Today the Church has a new consciousness, you can not go back to the things of the past, even if they were sacred, but today they are no longer there, because the Church’s consciousness determines the truth in today.”

Something like that is thought by almost all today, and that is terrible. It is the fastest way to destroy the Church, as we see. The representatives of this thinking have access to almost all means of communication, because they are useful to “entertain” the people, they do not argue with the New Paganism, they do not startle, do not challenge them when they criticize, then only the Church, most of the time, but they just talk, they palaver and palaver and say this mostly nothing.

But it is enough that a child says in his innocence, see, the king is naked, and already breaks the spell of censorship that the past is hidden, it falls into place in a single moment. That’s why it will take more work from the traditional side and less “whining”, to help build the kingdom of God, according to the responsibility that God has entrusted to each of us objectively.

There is no time to lose: Do all that stands in your way, so that the Catholic Church and the world is Christian.

Liberal Catholicism: It’s as if God doesn’t exist – or if he does, he has no real standards!

“Italy Hails Liberal Cardinal Martini, who wanted Catholic Church to Change.”
That was the headline from the Boston Globe, September 4, 2012, on the death of Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini. The world’s press was of one voice eulogizing the former Archbishop of Milan, once seen as Papal contender.
As is usually the case, the press loved Martini not for his attachment to the Catholic Faith of all time, but for his zest to challenge it.

The media praised Martini as an “open-minded thinker,” one who “struck an original note in Church affairs.”[1]

What were some of Martini’s radical ideas? In his last interview, which Martini asked to be published after his death, Martini said the Catholic Church is “200 years behind the times”. Martini further said, ”Our culture has grown old, our churches and our religious houses are big and empty, the bureaucratic apparatus of the Church grows, our rites and our dress are pompous.”

Martini encouraged opening up reception of the Eucharist for the divorced and remarried Catholics, counseling against what he called “discrimination.”[2] In the book Night Conversation with Cardinal Martini published in 2010, Martini insisted, “You can’t make God a Catholic God. God is beyond all the barriers and borders we create.”[3]

In the same book, speaking of dialogue with non-Catholics, Cardinal Martini said that once you talk frankly with members of various other religions, “You will even be glad that the other person is a Protestant or Muslim”.[4]
Martini acknowledged the German and Austrian Bishops’ dissent from Humanae Vitae, as “pointing to a direction that we could promote today.”[5] Martini called for a more collegial and synodal approach to Church governance.[6] In 2007, “when the 16th Century Tridentine Mass was introduced as an option for Roman Catholic churches, Martini said he would refuse to celebrate it.”[7] Yet Pope Francis, on the first anniversary of the Cardinal’s death, publicly praised Martini as “a father for the whole Church”.

Francis went on to call Martini a “prophetic” figure, and “a man of discernment and peace”[8] Likewise in his infamous interview with La Repubblica’s atheist Editor Eugenio Scalfari, Francis spoke of Cardinal Martini as “someone who is very dear to me and also to you.”[9]

Optimistic commentators claim we must “read Francis through Benedict”. That may be true in part. It seems more accurate, however, to “read Francis through Martini,” since Francis seems to be following the progressive program outlined by the radical Italian Cardinal.

The Vatican’s Left Turn Under Francis

American conservative Catholics who defend Pope Francis keep saying that Francis is truly orthodox, despite the fact that the liberal US media love him. Maybe they’re right. But the further we go into this pontificate, the more I wonder if liberals understand something about Pope Francis that conservatives do not.

Read it for yourself. Better yet – round up some of your fellow Catholics and together, praying for supernatural discernment, study and thoroughly research all that is in it!

Report: Catholic Theological Society has betrayed the very purpose responsible Catholic theology exists to serve.

Judas betraying Jesus Christ

“As one of our members put it, the CTSA is a group of liberal theologians and ‘this permeates virtually everything … because the CTSA does not aspire to be a partisan group, both attitudes and practices will have to shift if the CTSA is to become the place where all perspectives within Catholic theology in North America are welcome,” the report continued.

Dr. Anthony Lilles, who teaches spiritual theology at St. John Vianney Seminary in Denver, Colo., commented to CNA Oct. 22 that he is “both saddened and encouraged by the report.”

Editor’s note: This is no great surprise. Just another scandal in the church! Now let’s take another very close look at what’s being taught in all the Catholic seminaries.

“Change” has come to the Vatican

The Argentine-born pontiff offered the encouragement for renewal in a homily during Mass Saturday at the Vatican City hotel where he lives. Francis told Catholics ”not to be afraid of renewing some structures” to accord with ”the places, the times” and the people, but he didn’t specify what needed to be changed.

Editor’s note: Here we have the new Pontiff channeling Barack Obama, instead of the Holy Spirit. Evidently, liberals and Jesuits think alike. 

The basic lines of ‘pro-choice’ rhetoric were sketched out by Catholic theologians, at the residence of America’s most famous Catholic family, nine years before the Roe v. Wade decision.

The Catholic role in repealing the laws on contraception is only part of the story. As Phil Lawler reported in his book, Faithful Departed: The Collapse of Boston’s Catholic Culture, the scheme to legalize abortion took place not in a candle-lit basement where Satanists celebrated black masses, but at the home of America’s leading Catholic family, the Kennedys.

In 1964, Lawler wrote, leftist Catholic priests Robert DrinanCharles Curran and other theologians convened at Hyannis Port, Mass., with the brain trust behind the Senate campaign of Robert F. Kennedy.  They concocted the teaching that abortion could be justified if it were the “lesser of two evils” and that “a blanket prohibition might be more harmful to the common good”  because political leaders might  “impose their own private views on public policy. …The skillful operatives of the Kennedy family would round up the votes to end restrictions on abortion and eventually provide public subsidies. The Jesuit theologians would provide protective cover” and sabotage Catholic teaching in the universities. “Thus, the basic lines of ‘pro-choice’ rhetoric were sketched out by Catholic theologians, at the residence of America’s most famous Catholic family, nine years before the Roe v. Wade decision.”

Why don’t liberal Jews recognize the close connection between their particular Holocaust and the world-wide abortion holocaust?

A no brainer: It’s all bad! 

Liberal Jewish groups that have made reproductive rights a priority believe that such bills, even when they fail, represent a growing threat to Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that made abortion a matter of choice.

“We know that yesterday’s vote was symbolic, since the Senate will not take up the bill and the president has said he would veto it,” Barbara Weinstein, the director of the Reform movement’s Commission on Social Action, said in a statement. “Yet the symbolism of the bill’s House passage is indeed important, demonstrating the unfortunate reality that women’s reproductive rights remain at risk.”

Editor’s note: When your personal, liberalized form of religion (as well as your political ideology) holds abortion rights as sacred, nothing else really matters. These guys sound just like Nancy Pelosi and a lot of other politicians, who claim to be Catholic, but are also blinded by their personal politics.

The Obtuse Spirit of Vatican II: Still attempting to pass off damaged spiritual goods as “quality merchandise”.

ClownMass

Just consider some of the most famous quotes regarding Vatican II.

Cardinal Giuseppe Siri said, “If the Church were not Divine, the Council would have buried her.”

The liberal Cardinal Joseph Suenens rejoiced, “Vatican II is the French Revolution of the Church.”

Bishop Thomas Morrow, a prelate who participated at Vatican II, said later in life, “I was relieved when we were told that this Council was not aiming at defining or giving final statements on doctrine, because a statement of doctrine has to be very carefully formulated, and I would have regarded the Council documents as tentative and liable to be reformed.”

At the close of Vatican II, the bishops asked Council Secretary Archbishop Felici for that which the theologians call the “theological note” of the Council; that is, the doctrinal “weight” of Vatican II’s teachings. Felici replied: “We have to distinguish according to the schemas and the chapters those which have already been the subject of dogmatic definitions in the past; as for the decelerations which have a novel character, we have to make reservations.”

Liberal Protestant Observer Robert McAffee Brown, writing immediately after the Council, said he despised Pope Pius XI’s and Pope Pius XII’s magisterial pronouncement on Ecumenism (Mortalium Animos and the 1949 Decree on Ecumenism) because both documents insisted on the conversion of non-Catholics to Catholicism as one and only way to true Christian Unity. McAfee Brown went on to say he loved Vatican II’s Decree on Ecumenism because the Council text nowhere mentions the need for non-Catholics to convert to the Catholic Church.

Even Walter Cardinal Kasper, an ardent advocate of ecumenism, recently admitted the confusion within the Council texts themselves.

Editor’s note: No offense to Pope Francis for his liberal views … but liberals just love revolution … and they simply hate to give up … no matter how badly things turn out.

The “party line” of the people who run today’s Catholic Church … in its’ own special way … remains every bit as liberal, radical and lacking in essential truth as does Barack Obama’s present political regime.

In 1965, CHANGE came to the Catholic Church. And it was an unmitigated DISASTER for the entire world.

It’s high time somebody in authority cut off the head and plunged a stake through the heart of the 2nd Vatican Council … once and for all.

It’s either that … or perhaps the Holy Spirit has already abandoned the church and granted the people all the desires of their hearts. (Definitely not a good thing, since the only thing left after that is Divine Judgment and Wrath.)

Solution to the gun violence problem: Ban liberals. Not guns.

And just how bad are the big cities, which tend to be liberal? Here’s the Atlantic, with a spiffy map that compares the rate of gun murders to foreign countries and finds

  • If it were a country, New Orleans (with a rate 62.1 gun murders per 100,000 people) would rank second in the world.
  • Detroit’s gun homicide rate (35.9) is just a bit less than El Salvador (39.9).
  • Baltimore’s rate (29.7) is not too far off that of Guatemala (34.8).
  • Gun murder in Newark (25.4) and Miami (23.7) is comparable to Colombia (27.1).
  • Washington D.C. (19) has a higher rate of gun homicide than Brazil (18.1).
  • Atlanta’s rate (17.2) is about the same as South Africa (17).
  • Cleveland (17.4) has a higher rate than the Dominican Republic (16.3).
  • Gun murder in Buffalo (16.5) is similar to Panama (16.2).
  • Houston’s rate (12.9) is slightly higher than Ecuador’s (12.7).
  • Gun homicide in Chicago (11.6) is similar to Guyana (11.5).
  • Phoenix’s rate (10.6) is slightly higher than Mexico (10).
  • Los Angeles (9.2) is comparable to the Philippines (8.9).
  • Boston rate (6.2) is higher than Nicaragua (5.9).
  • New York, where gun murders have declined to just four per 100,000, is still higher than Argentina (3).
  • Even the cities with the lowest homicide rates by American standards, like San Jose and Austin, compare to Albania and Cambodia respectively.

Strange. All those places tend to be hives of Progressive ideals. Even big cities like Houston and Phoenix tend to lean left. Perhaps we should simply restrict those who vote Democrat from owning guns. Oh, wait, in most of those areas they are restricted, along with everyone else. Except criminals.

The sad state of “higher education”

Almost everything about the modern university is a paradox. It has become a sort of industry gone rogue that embraces practices that a Wal-Mart or Halliburton would never get away with. It is exempt from scrutiny in the fashion that the Left ceased talking about renditions or Guantanamo Bay once Barack Obama was elected, or a Code Pink goes after a NRA official in the way it would never disrupt a hearing on Fast and Furious. In other words, the university is one of the great foundations of the Left, and so is immune from the sort of criticism that otherwise is daily leveled against other institutions.

So let’s take a 10-minute stroll through the campus and learn why costs soar even as students are ever more poorly educated.

Liberal’s worst nightmare: Even a child can see that the latest gun ban arguments are 1000 times more applicable to banning abortion.

Bill of Rights

by Doug Lawrence

The right to bear arms is specifically included in the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, while the “right” to abortion remains only a cruel fabrication of those who have elevated personal, irresponsible and unlimited sexual license above everything else.

The billions … probably trillions … of Homeland Security dollars that were “allocated” to states and municipalities all across the country, based on politics and alleged fairness, rather than likely exposure to terrorism, could have been used to properly secure every school in the country, but instead, they were squandered on spiffy new surveillance systems, cars, boats, trailers and trucks, as well as many other totally unnecessary law enforcement assets and projects.

Now the “libs” want to to demagogue the school violence issue in order to achieve a few minimal and totally ineffective gains for their gun control agenda.

But, you say …
if the life of only one child is saved …
it will be worth it!

How about instead, we ban abortion … and save the lives of 3000 innocent children every day!

“Ultra-left wing Jews and Catholics” have denigrated the Pope’s (Pius XII) reputation because he “typified the conservative, traditional Church”.

One of the most prominent Jewish defenders of Pope Pius XII’s actions during World War II said in a recent interview that “we’re definitely winning” the battle to restore the Pontiff’s reputation.

“Every time we do more research, we find a diamond,” said Gary Krupp of the Pave the Way Foundation. “It’s incredible, but there’s nothing on the other side, because there’s no documented foundation for any of their accusations.”

The leadership of the Girl Scouts is reflexively liberal. Their board is dominated by people whose views are antithetical to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

According to a Visiting Fellow in Catholic studies at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, Mary Rice Hasson, GS-USA has not been responsive to its critics and has been “whitewashing” programs and policies that contradict church teaching. Hasson said:

They just repeated the Girl Scouts’ denials. Families’ concerns were minimized or ignored.

A collision course is probably a good description of where things are headed. The leadership of the Girl Scouts is reflexively liberal. Their board is dominated by people whose views are antithetical to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

GS-USA argues that the concerns raised by Catholic critics are recycled complaints that GS-USA has denied repeatedly and categorically.

Flores: It is no surprise that the unchecked liberalism that has permeated our Church for the last five decades is coming to bite us with a vengeance.

Who made the community organizer such a powerful entity to have the ability to “ empower” others? Oh, that’s right . . . the liberal clergy and laity in the Catholic Church.

Funded through the Church’s Campaign for Human Development, Obama’s job was the typical community organizer’s job. Go out and agitate people about their conditions, use them, and, at the end of the day, the only winners are the community organizations and the political cronies who benefit by voter registration drives that are really blatant canvassing efforts in favor of liberal politicians.

Sorry Pat Buchanan, truth is no defense against liberal’s false accusations.

Documented in the 488 pages and 1,500 footnotes of “Suicide of a Superpower” is my thesis that America is Balkanizing, breaking down along the lines of religion, race, ethnicity, culture and ideology, and that Western peoples are facing demographic death by century’s end.

Are such subjects taboo? Are they unfit for national debate?

So it would seem. MSNBC President Phil Griffin told reporters, “I don’t think the ideas that (Buchanan) put forth (in his book) are appropriate for the national dialogue, much less on MSNBC.”

Liberals vs. Tim Tebow: Seething and self-evident anti-Christian bigotry.

The only explanation for what can possibly be fueling this hatred and contempt for Tebow is that he thanks Jesus Christ at every opportunity. That reality alone is what is driving these self-defined paragons of tolerance into the realm of derangement. And if that seems like too strong of a descriptor, consider the words of left-wing Rabbi Joshua Hammerman in a recent column:

“If Tebow wins the Super Bowl, against all odds, it will buoy his faithful, and emboldened faithful can do insane things, like burning mosques, bashing gays and indiscriminately banishing immigrants. While America has become more inclusive since Jerry Falwell’s first political forays, a Tebow triumph could set those efforts back considerably.”
