(Repost) As I Have Been Screeching for Years, Timothy Dolan is an Unmitigated Jackass (Donkey)
Barnhardt Blog ^ | Ann Barnhardt

Posted on 03/12/2014 9:51:39 AM PDT by Repent and Believe

Really, what more is there to say? Anyone with a brain knew years ago that Timothy Dolan was a craven, politicking imbecile. Presiding at the “gay” Mass at St. Francis Xavier parish in Manhattan and CHEERING the unrepentant sodomite club introduced at said Mass – yeah – that was a SUBTLE CLUE. Inviting antichrist forerunner Obama to the Al Smith dinner and slapping his back while wearing a perpetual ****-eating grin the whole time was another SUBTLE CLUE. But now, ol’ Tracksuit Timmy has officially jumped the shark, and let’s not sugarcoat this, Pope Francis Bergoglio is driving the tow boat. From this morning’s pre-recorded appearance on Meet the Press:

Michael Sam, from your home state, the football player, revealed that he was gay, first in the NFL,” David Gregory said. “And you saw the celebration from the president, the first lady, and they were saying what a courageous step that was. How did you view it?”

“Good for him,” Dolan replied. “I would have no sense of judgment on him. God bless ya. I don’t think, look, the same Bible that tells us, that teaches us, well about the virtues of chastity and the virtue of fidelity and marriage also tells us not to judge people. So I would say, ‘Bravo.’”

“Bravo” to sodomy. Bravo to one man jamming his erect penis into the feces-laden descending colon of another man, and then using the descending colon as the point of masturbatory friction. ”Bravo” to one of the four sins that cry out to heaven for God’s vengeance. ”Bravo” to self-loathing. ”Bravo” to using another human being as a mere masturbatory vector. ”Bravo” to a sin so heinous, so foul, so disgusting that Our Blessed Lord Himself told St. Catherine of Siena that it makes Him NAUSEOUS and that even the demons withdraw from it because it is so sick and twisted that their angelic natures – demonic as they are – cannot stand to look upon it or be near it. ”Bravo” to that. ”Bravo” to mortal sin, which if never repented of WILL CONDEMN A PERSON TO ETERNAL DAMNATION. ”Bravo” to that, says Dolan, who couldn’t give any less of a shit about this Michael Sam kid, and is perfectly willing to not only watch this poor kid go to hell, but will even relish in Michael Sam’s sin in order to leverage his (Dolan’s) own personal worldly popularity. There simply aren’t words. The craven connivance is beyond description.

And WHY does Dolan finally feel free to show the callous indifference to not just human souls but also to the Sacred Heart of Our Blessed Lord that it is crystal clear he has felt for a long time? Why is does Dolan now feel fully liberated to ratify sodomy and increase his own worldly popularity by his complete indifference to sin, manifested in this sick permissiveness of objective evil? Because Pope Francis has thrown open the barn door. Dolan – like the Advocate magazine and every other tool and mouthpiece for satan on the planet – quotes Pope Francis Bergoglio specifically: Who am I to judge?

Besides a priest and bishop charged with the spiritual well-being of his flock? Besides a rational human being?

Does Dolan really believe that we are called by God to make absolutely NO moral judgements whatsoever about human behavior? Really? So we can’t judge murder? We can’t judge rape? We can’t judge theft? ”Judge not lest ye be judged” is God Almighty abolishing the very notion of sin and demanding total anarchy? REALLY?

The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom: and his tongue shall speak judgment. The law of his God is in his heart, and his steps shall not be supplanted. Psalm 36: 30-31

But the sensual man perceiveth not these things that are of the Spirit of God; for it is foolishness to him, and he cannot understand, because it is spiritually examined. But the spiritual man judgeth all things; and he himself is judged of no man. 1 Corinthians 2: 14-15

(Footnote: The sensual man: The sensual man is either he who is taken up with sensual pleasures, with carnal and worldly affections; or he who measureth divine mysteries by natural reason, sense, and human wisdom only. Now such a man has little or no notion of the things of God.)

But beyond that obvious imbecility, Dolan has now taken it a step further – he HAS in fact JUDGED the sin of sodomy, and has JUDGED it positively. ”Bravo” means “good”. ”Good for him” means GOOD. FOR. HIM. But Dolan isn’t smart enough to recognize the internal contradiction in saying “Bravo” - which is the Italian word for “good” in the sense of “well done” – and in literally the same breath saying “Who am I to judge?” You just DID judge, you jackass.

For the sodomites, and ultimately their father satan, mere toleration was never, ever the goal. The goal is full ratification and publicly-stated approval, followed by the outlawing of non-ratification and/or non-participation. Dolan has now explicitly and undeniably ratified sodomy with the words “Bravo” and “Good for him.” And why did he do it? Because he saw the wild mainstream popularity of Pope Francis and he wants in on it too. Let’s quit dancing around the reality of the situation. Pope Francis is popular for one reason and one reason only: his moral laxity, permissiveness, moral relativism and compulsive downplaying of the gravity of sin. Duh.

We are clearly now in the extreme end-stages of this culture. It is now “illegal” to not participate in the cult of child sacrifice, and it is likewise also almost completely illegal to not participate in or service the cult of sodomy – and jackasses like Dolan will be in position, squarely behind the people, continuing to place his foot firmly in the smalls of their backs and pushing them straight into hell, quoting Pope Francis Bergoglio all the way. The staggering, unquantifiable damage that Pope Francis Bergoglio has done and continues to do is utterly unprecedented. Pope Francis’ litany of active statements of permissiveness makes the mere silence of Paul VI seem like “the good old days”. Heck, at least Paul VI had Humanae Vitae. Er, or should that be “at most”? Either way, the poop well and truly does roll downhill.

*~*

Sweet Jesus, please do absolutely whatever it takes – WHATEVER IT TAKES – to make this stop. We know we deserve not only this, but so much worse. We know it will hurt – badly. But we know that you have and will provide us with the tools and strength we need to weather the storm. We have the Church, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and You Yourself in the Eucharist. We have Your Mother as our mother and advocate, and her Most Holy Rosary to keep us focused and mindful of Your life, death and resurrection every day, as well as all of your Holy Saints and Angels. But please, for the sake of your Sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us, and on the whole world. Show us Your Mercy by showing us Your Justice. PLEASE MAKE THIS STOP.

But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh. And if thy hand, or thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee to go into life maimed or lame, than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee having one eye to enter into life, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. Matthew 18: 6-10

Suppose the question had been put to Dolan like this:

“Jo Schmo, from your home state, the football player, revealed that he was a thief and a murderer, first in the NFL. How did you view it?” To be intellectually (and thus theologically) consistent Dolan would have to answer reporter like so: “Good for him. I would have no sense of judgment on him. God bless ya. I don’t think, look, the same Bible that tells us, that teaches us, well about the virtue of generosity and the virtue of kindness and charity also tells us not to judge people. So I would say, ‘Bravo.’"

Folks, does this help you see the fallacy in his position?

R&B, the formatting mkes it much better.

I am so disgusted at Cardinal Dolan I can hardly respond. (Is there an adequate word that combines fury, depression and shame?) I feel like reacting in a way that would do serious damage to my computer, which would be pointless.

Guess I'll write an editorial in my parish newsletter, and then send a copy to Unmitigated Tim. Not very adequate, but it's better than assault and battery on a priest, which would be a pretty serious canonical delict.

In a sane world, Dolan would have been yanked out of New York and made a washroom attendant in the Vatican when he said of the PRO-ABORTION governor of New York (Paterson) that he “takes his Catholic faith seriously.”

Ann is absolutely correct about Dolan, and always has been.

If there were another author as capable of mentioning let alone remarking so articulately on this debacle, without coarse language, I would post it instead.

(She did herself edit out one word ****.)

On another point: how else does the public become aware of the gravity and depravity of sodomy without a description. People today are so hung up on science and proof of arguments that to leave out the gory details of what sodomy is would be for people to be left in ignorance of the gravity of crime.

At what point, if ever, does your disgust turn toward the Pope? Either he is letting this evil reign unchallenged (bad) or he is in agreement (worse). We have a pattern now of multiple bishops and cardinals feeling free to spout heresy. Not good. All of my doctrinal differences with Rome aside, I am saddened to see her decay in the realms in which we agree; realms that she has traditionally been a fearless warrior.

What if you stop using money and instead switch to barter only, are you still rendering to Caesar then?

One can make a great argument against such acts of sodomy using science itself as most acts concerning it are very non-hygenic by their very nature.

Hmm, give people power, expect them to remain virtuous, be surpised when they become very corrupt...

I know the God of the Bible and the God of the Ciopybook headings agree on this, Man is flawed and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

God is a perfect being as God has infinte power and yet is NOT corrupt, that is the definition of being truly divine.

My issue w Ms barnhardt is where she says to stop filing tax returns.

Big fat red alert in glowing neon letters!

IIRC, the IRS says barter is income, correct me with a quote from the tax code if I’m wrong.

And how does one tell their employer not to pay them, or to pay them in barter?

IIRC the IRS also defines “contractors”; people tried to categorize themselves as contractors and the IRS got wind of it.... and put rules in the code about it.

So the mechanics of getting out from under the “render to Caesar “ requirement is rather difficult.

IMHO, I’d rather see an across the board 10% flat tax and pitch the code altogether. Everyone pays 10%.

I’d rather see an income tax ONLY for foreign workers in the US and for foreign workers in other countries employed by domestically owned companies and a 10% Tariff on all imported good.

Being a citizen should mean the privlidge of NOT needing to pay Federal income taxes. And Citizenship should be guarded jelously by the populace.

If states want to charge income tax, let them...

“The author’s point could still have been made w/o the coarse language.”

I have found that, sometimes, it is the precise and explicit description of the act that jolts a quisling into thought.

It seems to me, and this might not be universally true, that one of the things women see in the “plus” column as regards sodomites is that the sodomites are not after *them*, the women. And sometimes a woman might think, “Well, I perform oral sex, so what’s the big deal about men doing it to each other?”

A description of the act dishonestly labeled anal “sex” such as is given in this article is, again sometimes, just what the doctor ordered for RRDD (right-reason deficit disorder).

RRDD is, of course, the condition of having accepted the degenerate left’s rationales for issues such as the enforced legitimization of same-sex attraction disorder, without the application of right reason to the matter.

It seems to me that some people toe the leftist line not because they are malevolent (although some are), and not because they are stupid (although some are), but because they have carelessly accepted the prevailing views without having applied right reason.

This is often because they were never taught to use right reason, or even taught that it exists. In such cases, it is possible to jar a person into looking at a question from a different perspective.

Of course, this is totally unnecessary for you, but it could do some good for someone else.

My reaction toward the Pope is mixed. --- and in more paragraphs than I have time to write right now.

My main gripe is that he talks way, way, way too much and way, way, way too loosely. He's given the EneMedia every material they need to craft a "Spirit of St. Francis" --- which should be understood as a riff on the "Spirit of Vatican II" in which it didn't matter what was actually said, as long as you confabulated a zeitgeist that blew everybody in the wrong bassackward direction.

And that he's shaping up to be a lousy disciplinarian. Truly dangerous.

How I miss BXVI.

To think that he is in the see of the late, great Cardinal O’Connor.

Some of Benedict’s episcopal selections were not very good.

Cdl Dolan has been an absolute disaster. NYers are actually inclined to be very traditional and very devout, but he has undercut them at every turn. Stop it with the goofy football fan act, already! Preach and teach and act like a bishop.

Dolan was appointed by BXVI. That said, Dolan actually had a reputation for orthodoxy before he got to NY, although he was always probably more Dem than Catholic.

It could be that he thinks his stupid responses are what the Pope wants, although I honestly don’t think that’s the case. But it certainly saves Dolan any effort. He can go out and schmooze with the gays, drape his arm around Cuomo or De Blasio, and feel he’s just the coolest bishop in the universe.

I agree this article is very graphic and I made the mistake of viewing it while having lunch...Well lunch over.

I have to say the author is making a point and one that many forget...the ‘act’ of sodomy is an abomination to God and God says so in Scriptures. We are constantly fed by the MSM videos of “loving” gay “couples” hand holding and getting “married.” There is an absence of the ‘real deal’ to the ‘practices’ and behaviors. The author clearly points this out as did Phil Robertson a few months ago.

I suggest he run and read Luke 16.

There’s nothing new under the sun. A reading of Numbers re: Korah, Dathan and Abiram and a perusal of Balaam may be in order as well.

As is said in Psalms...
Let another take his office.

But hey, we wouldn’t expect Satan to bother with the usual heathen on the street if he could get a bigger catch. We are all human, with free will. We have all sinned, fall short and are working out our salvation.

Remember, re: letters to the churches, the corruption was from inside, Christians, not outsiders. Pride must be checked when offering correction... with prayer and humility, lest we pile sin on sin. You correct your addict brother, not because you’re higher or better than him, but because he’s hurting your father/family, giving bad example/corrupting his other/younger siblings and ruining his soul... and others through what he does, rather he realizes it or not, is ready to receive it or not.

We all have to answer to the Lord.

Trust in God and pray for him and all of us.

Does Dolan really believe that we are called by God to make absolutely NO moral judgements whatsoever about human behavior? Really? So we can’t judge murder? We can’t judge rape? We can’t judge theft? ”Judge not lest ye be judged” is God Almighty abolishing the very notion of sin and demanding total anarchy? REALLY?

Seems to be the post-modern approach of Dolan and Pope Francis. God gave us standards, He had them written down. We are not to judge others based on 'our righteousness' but we are to present God's Law as part of Gospel preaching in order to expose the sinner as (in daniel1212's tag line) damned+destitute. Our job is to do what Jesus Christ did in Luke 18 where he confronts the rich young man with the Law and after showing the man he was not worthy according to the Law, that only with God are all things possible. The first element of Gospel preaching is to bring folks up the rocky path of Mt Sinai and then, only then once they realize they are lacking according to God's Law, we present the deliverance of Mt Zion (Christ's death and resurrection).

ACTUAL QUOTES (hat-tip: Fr. Peter Carota of Traditional Catholic Priest - Blog)

This is an exerpt:

“The road to hell is paved with the skulls of bishops.”
Saint John Eudes, attributed.4

“It must be observed, however, that if the faith were endangered, a subject ought to rebuke his prelate even publicly.”
St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica II, II, q. 33, a. 45

“Augustine says in his Rule: ‘Show mercy not only to yourselves, but also to him who, being in the higher position among you, is therefore in greater danger.’ But fraternal correction is a work of mercy. Therefore even prelates ought to be corrected.”
St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica II, II, q. 33, a. 4, Sed Contra.

“It is better that scandals arise than the truth be suppressed.”
Pope St. Gregory the Great 6

“But, when necessity compels, not those only who are invested with power of rule are bound to safeguard the integrity of faith, but, as St. Thomas maintains: ‘Each one is under obligation to show forth his faith, either to instruct and encourage others of the faithful, or to repel the attacks of unbelievers.’”
Pope Leo XIII7

The One true Church and how to recognize it.
Use this guideline as a measure...
*It was founded by Jesus Christ Himself in Mt 16:18.
*It would be built on Simon Peter, Mt 16:18.
*It would be defended by GOD Himself, Mt 16:18-19.
*It would have authority given by Jesus Christ, Mt 16:19,18:17-18.
*It would be guided by the Holy Spirit who will dwell within it, Jn 14:15-17, Act 15:28,16:6.
*It would be one and undivided, Mk 3:24-25.
*It would have one fold and one shepherd, Jn 10:16.
*It would have Priests, Bishops, and Deacons, 1Tim 3:1-13.
*It must have the Holy Eucharist celebration, Jn 6:42-70, Acts 2:42.
*It must be found in all nations, Mt 28:19.
*It must be found in all centuries, Mt 28:20.
*Jesus Christ said He would be with His Church every day, in every year, until the end of the world, Mt 28:20. (This means no gaps in time.)

On another point: how else does the public become aware of the gravity and depravity of sodomy without a description. People today are so hung up on science and proof of arguments that to leave out the gory details of what sodomy is would be for people to be left in ignorance of the gravity of crime.

I agree with you (and Ann, and the Duck Commander).

Preach and teach and act like a bishop.

Ah, 'tis the Dolan Boy! This is what watching Dennis Day/Bing Crosby/Pat O'Brien re-reruns can do to an impressionable NYC Catholic Irish boyo of the 50's. Met a million of'em.

Dolan was not chosen by the Pope. O no. He was sent over by 1930s Central Casting as a "Stage Irishman" of the olde school. Bet he knows a thousand Pat and Mike jokes, begorrah! That includes the one which ends ".... bajasus, the Bishop is pregnant!"

At least we know where he probably is ... at home in the episcopal palace watching "The Quiet Man" on VHS. Why didn't they make this fool Archbishop of Boston, where the faux-Irish Brogue-and-all IRA boolshiite still plays well ... so well that John Kerry convinced them HE was Irish!

Dear Mrs. Don-o,

“Not very adequate, but it's better than assault and battery on a priest, which would be a pretty serious canonical delict.”

Only if you're assaulting him because he's a priest. If you're assaulting him because he's a complete heretical idiot, that's not a canonical violation.

But not for decency. The author's point could still have been made w/o the coarse language

Yes, if minor, it is not necessary, as the Bible shows.

Yet attributing words of tradition to the Lord is profane:

Blessed Lord Himself told St. Catherine of Siena that it makes Him NAUSEOUS and that even the demons withdraw from it because it is so sick and twisted that their angelic natures – demonic as they are – cannot stand to look upon it or be near it.

There is zero evidence the demons are repulsed by this, any more than they are to swine, or even have any virtue, and in fact it is demons who are behind sodomy, not repelled by it.

But Scripture is only a servant for Rome, not her master. and insufficient to support her traditions, thus she can attempt to provide for herself what is needed.

Dolan has now taken it a step further – he HAS in fact JUDGED the sin of sodomy, and has JUDGED it positively. ”Bravo” means “good”. ”Good for him” means GOOD. FOR. HIM.

This is true. There is not such thing as no judging in this sense. The sodomites in Gn. 19 also came out - to get in Lot's door and his holy guests. Who did not say "Bravo."
