There hasn’t been a disastrous roll out like Obamacare, since the end of the Second Vatican Council.

A pair of  colossal “train wrecks”!

by Doug Lawrence

Both were liberal political fantasies which aimed to replace perfectly good, workable systems, unequaled in both efficacy and objective truth, with untested, unworkable, pie-in-the-sky, progressive ideologies and practices, no matter the cost or consequences!

A troop of mini-Bergoglios

…it is not unthinkable for the CDF’s Archbishop Muller to go on the attack against traditional Catholics (particularly the SSPX), and if he does, I think Pope Francis will not stop him. I also believe Francis will appoint bishops who are indifferent or hostile to the Old Mass…

It did not appear to me that anyone else noticed.

Today I wept at Mass. The heresy with which the priest was coming out with was so extreme that I was soul stricken and appalled that no-one else seemed to notice. I will list a few of the transgressions and I just wanted to ask have you been getting any emails of similar incidences in other parishes?

1) The visiting priest introduced himself and then invited anyone who wanted to leave to go to Dunkin Donuts. He said and I quote, ‘God does not take attendance. She has better things to do.’
2) He proceeded to talk about how he was brought out of retirement to say Mass and said, ‘I don’t know why I am here. I don’t know why some of you women here couldn’t do the Mass, or one of you married men.’
3) He omitted the “Gloria” and the ‘Creed’
4) He changed the words of the Gospel. Where it said “He” he said ‘they.’ At the end he offered an explanation after first admonishing all those who read their missalettes while he read the Gospel and advising us to walk out now and head for Dunkin Donuts. His explanation was I changed the words of “He” to “They” to be inclusive.’
5) At the Consecration, he did not elevate the Host and the Chalice nor did he genuflect.

Eating death and drinking damnation

I have no respect for Catholics who trot on up to the Communion line and say, “Look at me, I’m progressive!  If only Christ were willing to come down from that cross and dialogue with me about compassion, then we’d get somewhere!”

If they don’t know what they’re doing, then we pray that God will crack that terrible shell of ignorance and indifference, and they will seek repentance.   But if these “pro-choice Catholics” do knowingly flout the teaching of the sanctity of life and yet refuse to abstain from receiving the body, blood, soul and divinity of Christ, then when they reach the head of that line, they are eating death and drinking damnation.  This is the teaching of the Church.

But there is someone even worse than a pro-choice Catholic..

Who is worse?  Their God.  The God of the pro-choice Catholic is an idiot God.

Who is to blame for Jared Loughner?

He is the product of decades of liberal and progressive social policies.    And he will not be the last of the Devil’s assassins.  Pray for many more exorcists and fewer government-ordained, politically correct, neo-marxist/freudian/jungian mental health bureaucrats.

The ACLU’s Not-So-Holy Trinity

In the interest of faith and charity, I’d like to add my own ecumenical offering—a history lesson. It concerns some fascinating material I recently discovered on the ACLU’s early founders, especially three core figures: Roger Baldwin, Harry Ward, and Corliss Lamont. I can only provide a snapshot here, but you’ll get the picture.

First, Roger Baldwin: Baldwin was the founder of the ACLU, so far to the left that he was hounded by the Justice Department of the progressive’s progressive, Woodrow Wilson. Perhaps it was a faith thing. Wilson was a progressive, but he was also a devout Christian, and Roger Baldwin was anything but that.

Baldwin was an atheist. He was also a pro-Soviet communist, though smart enough not to join Communist Party USA (CPUSA). Other early officials of the ACLU, which was founded almost exactly the same time as the American Communist Party, included major party members like William Z. Foster and Elizabeth Gurley Flynn. Communists used the ACLU to deflect questions from the U.S. government over whether they were loyal to the USSR, were serving Joe Stalin in some capacity, and were committed to the overthrow of the American system.

That “overthrow-the-government” thing is something our universities insist is a bunch of anti-communist, McCarthyite tripe. In fact, it took me mere minutes of digging into the Comintern Archives on CPUSA to find fliers and formal proclamations from the American Communist Party publicly advocating precisely that objective. (Click here to view some of the documents.) I also found the ACLU rife throughout those archives.

My, how things have changed!

Now only a fond memory?

Seen at Matt C. Abbot’s column

Submitted by Marcia Darnell:

There was a wonderful nun who touched my soul when I was growing up. Her name was Sister Rosamonde and she was my teacher for several years in Plymouth, Mass., at the Sacred Heart School there. I also attended the same school at a different branch in Orleans on Cape Cod. This was the only time in my life I could not wait to get up and go to school; I was saddened when holidays and weekends came around and it was not a school day. These were the happiest days of my life. We went to First Friday Mass, were taught from the Baltimore Catechism, and our lives were rich with the stories of the saints and true miraculous events known to the sisters. We had dancing classes, music classes and even were taught a foreign language starting in the fourth grade. The nuns would take us to their property in Kingston, where they later relocated the school, for outings to make ice cream and run in the fields and play games.

I wanted the same wonderful experience for my children but that was not to be. My only option was to homeschool in New Jersey so they could learn the Faith. However, at the time, I even urged my husband to find a job near Kingston, Mass., so my girls could have the same education with the same wonderful nuns 40 years after I left.

Then I met a woman who had relocated to our state who told me her son was resentful that his parents removed him from Sacred Heart School in Kingston and moved to New Jersey. So she hosted the Sisters of Divine Providence at her home because she loved these nuns and missed them, too. Her phone call after their visit extinguished my desire to move back there to be near the school. She said they had changed — that some transformation happened over the late 1980s and early 1990s. They had become ‘progressives.’ I was comforted to hear from her that my own special nun was viewed as the only one who seemed to have escaped the metamorphosis. Now, after reading your column, I realize the Lord spared us from a fruitless move.
