  • [Catholic and Protestant] Conservatives to Synod: Donít Go Soft on Marriage

    The letter:

    “Open Letter to 2014 Synod on Marriage and Family

    Holy Father, Eminences, and Excellencies,

    We rejoice that the Holy Father has captured the world’s attention and so much good will for the Christian faith! Like others we are deeply moved by his expressions of love and mercy, echoing the love and mercy of Christ, especially for those who are defenseless and abandoned.

    It is in this context that we welcome the decision to convene an Extraordinary Synod of Bishops to examine the challenges to marriage and the family. Like each of you, we believe the family is, with the Church itself, the greatest institutional manifestation of Christ’s love. For those who wish to love as He would have us love, marriage and the family are indispensable, both as vehicles of salvation and as bulwarks of human society.

    Recent popes have made these points abundantly clear. For example, Pope Benedict XVI wrote that, “Marriage is truly an instrument of salvation, not only for married people but for the whole of society.” And, in Evangelii Gaudium, Your Holiness wrote that “the indispensable contribution of marriage to society transcends the feelings and momentary needs of the couple.”

    This Synod is an opportunity to express timeless truths about marriage. Why do those truths matter? How do they represent true love, not “exclusion” or “prejudice,” or any of the other charges brought against marriage today? Men and women need desperately to hear the truth about why they should get married in the first place. And, once married, why Christ and the Church desire that they should remain faithful to each other throughout their lives on this earth. That, when marriage gets tough (as it does for most couples), the Church will be a source of support, not just for individual spouses, but for the marriage itself.

    You have written so powerfully, Holy Father, of the importance of a new evangelization within the Church: “An evangelizing community gets involved by word and deed in people’s daily lives; it bridges distances, it is willing to abase itself if necessary and it embraces human life, touching the suffering flesh of Christ in others.”

    May we humbly suggest that in the context of marriage and family life your words are a call to personal responsibility, not only for our own spouses and children, but for the marriages of those God has put by our side: our relatives and friends, those in our churches and in our schools.

    The stakes are high. According to a 2013 Child Trends international report: “Dramatic increases in cohabitation, divorce, and nonmarital childbearing in the Americas, Europe, and Oceania over the last four decades suggest that the institution of marriage is much less relevant in these parts of the world.” In the United States the marriage rate is the lowest ever recorded, unmarried cohabitation is rapidly becoming an acceptable alternative to marriage, and more than half of births to women under 30 years of age now occur outside marriage. Among countless other negative associations, each of these trends has been linked to lower net worth and economic mobility, poverty, and welfare – for women and children, in particular.

    Among existing marriages, many are fragile and strained. Between forty and fifty percent of all first marriages in the U.S. are projected to end in divorce. This rate rises sharply with each successive remarriage and research suggests the reason is not low marital quality, but weak commitment.

    The consequences of divorce and cohabitation for children and adults are many and diverse – from poverty and lower educational achievement to poorer physical health; from lower marital commitment in adulthood to earlier death. And while every nation is unique, studies show that the impact of these trends spans the globe. A small sampling of such studies: China, Finland, Sweden, Uruguay, Mexico, Greece, Africa, and East Asian Pacific nations.

    The costs of pornography to societies are significant. Studies of pornography’s impact on relationships suggest it is a major contributor to the destruction of marriages. Unfortunately, long-term research on pornography’s effect on marriage is virtually nonexistent.

    So called “no fault divorce” laws in the U.S. and many other nations have licensed a system in which judges and lawyers facilitate the dissolution of marriages, often against the will of spouses who stand firm in their marital commitment.

    Despite the bleakness of these trends, we are encouraged and made resolute by the Holy Father’s exhortation: “Challenges exist to be overcome! Let us be realists, but without losing our joy, our boldness and our hope-filled commitment.”

    Perhaps the boldest new way we can evangelize married couples (and by extension their children’s future marriages) is to build small communities of married couples who support each other unconditionally in their vocations to married life. These communities would provide networks of support grounded in the bonds of faith and family, commitment to lifelong marriage, and responsibility to and for each other.

    Here we offer some practical ways to create and sustain such communities:

    Commission the Pontifical Council on the Family to conduct cross-discipline, longitudinal research on the role of pornography and “no fault” divorce in the marriage crisis.

    Educate seminarians. Provide mandatory courses covering social science evidence on the benefits of marriage, threats to marriage, and the consequences of divorce and cohabitation to children and society.

    Train priests to showcase in their homilies the spiritual and social value of marriage, contemporary challenges to it, and parish help for troubled marriages. A recent study found that 72% of American Catholic women say the weekly homily is their primary source for learning about the faith.

    Create small, vibrant networks of strong married couples as mentors at the parish level, available to give spouses the tools to sustain healthy, lifelong marriages.

    Educate parishioners on the extraordinary influence they can have on the marriages of friends and family. Social science data show that the presence of divorced family and friends increases one’s own risk of divorce. Alternatively, the data suggest that family members and friends can increase commitment and satisfaction within marriages of those they love through their example and support.

    Encourage and support the reconciliation of married couples who are separated or have been divorced by civil courts.

    Request bishops worldwide to initiate regular prayers during Sunday Mass for strong, faithful marriages.

    Support efforts to preserve what is right and just in existing marriage laws, to resist any changes to those laws that would further weaken the institution, and to restore legal provisions that protect marriage as a conjugal union of one man and one woman, entered into with an openness to the gift of children, and lived faithfully and permanently as the foundation of the natural family.

    Support religious freedom in divorce courts. Many do not know that religious freedom is routinely violated by divorce judges who ignore or demean the views of a spouse who seeks to save a marriage, keep the children in a religious school, or prevent an abandoning spouse from exposing the children to an unmarried sexual partner. Begin a consortium of attorneys and legislators to combat this problem.

    To accomplish any of these goals on an international scale would be a great step forward for marriages and families. To accomplish them all may turn the worldwide marriage crisis on its head.

    With your leadership we will help marriages to succeed and flourish by placing the greatest value on marital commitment - at every level of society, in every corner of the world. We thank Your Holiness, Eminences, and Excellencies for taking up this vital task and you may be assured of our prayers for its great success.”

    “And soldiers are increasingly useless when you can push a button and summon a drone.”

Of course somebody will figure out a way to hack such, until out of necessity the drones become hack proof by being able to think for themselves...

    Same thing is going on in my rural area. Rather than shut down any of the small community PO’s, all of them will be cutting hours. A perfect example of their ‘efficiency’ is that if I want to send a letter from my PO to somebody on the other side of the river at their PO, the letter must first travel the 3 hours to El Paso and 3 hours back, which usually takes a couple of days. I can WALK between the 2 PO’s in less than an hour. The cut hours of business means either taking time off from work or driving 35 minutes to town for the privilege of dealing with the “multiple useless and surly employees”.

    The following is from:

    THE AGENDA OF ISLAM - A WAR BETWEEN CIVILIZATIONS

    by Professor Moshe Sharon

    There is no Fundamental Islam.

    “”Fundamentalism” is a word that came from the heart of the Christian religion. It means faith that goes by the word of the Bible. Fundamental Christianity, or going with the Bible, does not mean going around and killing people. There is no fundamental Islam. There is only Islam full stop. The question is how the Koran is interpreted.”

    “All of a sudden we see that the greatest interpreters of Islam are politicians in the western world. They know better than all the speakers in the mosques, all those who deliver terrible sermons against anything that is either Christian or Jewish. These western politicians know that there is good Islam and bad Islam. They know even how to differentiate between the two, except that none of them know how to read a word of Arabic.”

    Two Houses

    “The Koran sees the world as divided into two - one part which has come under Islamic rule and one part which is supposed to come under Islamic rule in the future. There is a division of the world which is very clear. Every single person who starts studying Islam knows it. The world is described as Dar al-Islam (the house of Islam) - that’s the place where Islam rules - and the other part which is called Dar al-Harb - the house of war. Not the “house of non-Muslims,” but the “house of war.” It is this house of war which as to be, at the end of time, conquered. The world will continue to be in the house of war until it comes under Islamic rule. This is the norm. Why? Because Allah says it’s so in the Koran. God has sent Mohammed with the true religion in order that the truth will overcome all other religions.”

    Islam and Territory

    “This civilization created one very important, fundamental rule about territory. Any territory that comes under Islamic rule cannot be de-Islamized. Even if at one time or another, the [non-Moslem] enemy takes over the territory that was under Islamic rule, it is considered to be perpetually Islamic.

    “This is why whenever you hear about the Arab/Israeli conflict, you hear - territory, territory, territory. There are other aspects to the conflict, but territory is highly important.

    “The Christian civilization has not only been seen as a religious opponent, but as a dam stopping Islam from achieving its final goal for which it was created.

    “Islam was created to be the army of God, the army of Allah. Every single Moslem is a soldier in this army. Every single Moslem that dies in fighting for the spread of Islam is a shaheed (martyr) no matter how he dies, because - and this is very important - this is an eternal word between the two civilizations. It’s not a war that stops. This was is there because it was created by Allah. Islam must be the ruler. This is a war that will not end.”

If they were not aware of such, and we did as you propose, giving voting rights to landowners only, they would loose their power. However, they are even trying to get around that aspect as well by using front groups such as The Nature Conservancy to buy up all the best farmable, resource rich, and waterway land. They are not stupid. If/when the SHTF the liberal stronghold cities would be out of luck, and they know it.

    Good post. Love her or hate her, Ann Barnhardt mentioned the secession movements in her latest post and had this to say:

    4. In my Economics YouTube presentation, I discussed the secession movements in Scotland (from the UK), Catalonia (from Spain), and Venice (from Italy). Scotland is now polling at 51% with momentum in favor of secession, with the referendum on September 18th. Here is my take on this. Scotland is a grotesque welfare piglet, suckling off of the x-rays being emitted by the financial black hole of doom that is London. So, if Scotland secedes, Scotland will fail and collapse, because that is what welfare states do. BUT, in the interstitial euphoric period, the Scottish secession, if it happens, will provide massive encouragement and momentum for the Catalonian and Venetian movements. Scotland could be the spark that sets off a chain of sovereign delinkages. I advocate the return of Italy into its natural three or four separate states – with separate, competing currencies! Only this will allow the south of Italy to ever get on its feet – oh, and also a heckuva lot of mafiosi will have to be publicly executed, too. The Italian Republic is a purely synthetic fiction. But what is very troubling is the Catalonian independence movement in Spain. Catalonia is the stronghold of the resurgent Andalusian branch of the New Caliphate. An independent Catalonia would effectively be the first foothold of the Caliphate on the European continent.”

    I tend to agree the oil would only be a means to an ends, or a bonus, in their goal of the new Caliphate. The ‘royal family’ has good reason to be fearful. I’m still trying to figure out just how big a player Ergoden is in this and how much sway he ultimately has over Turkey, and beyond. The SS guys tasked with protecting Barry either are completely ignorant of what is going on in those recent meetings or true believers as well.

    For those of you who do not know about this case, the Reese family had their business and lives destroyed when the 'just us' department targeted them and their gun shop with undercover agents, ultimately leading to a raid on their home and store, using helicopters and armored vehicles. Everything they owned was 'confiscated' and the whole family except for one of the sons were imprisoned. So even if the felony charges are dropped, their lives have been ruined and I certainly wouldn't wait for a "gee, were sorry. It was all a big misunderstanding", from the government.

Years ago I cried out to God, calling upon Him and as many of the people I had read about, with all my might. That was on the beach in Texas. The following morning my cries were answered as a man approached me (whom I had never met before) and introduced himself. He told me that I had cried out. He invited me to a place up in the redwoods just off the coast, where I spent the next 3 1/2 months in prayer and meditation, living in a gutted out airstream, and barely eating. During those 3 1/2 months, God answered me and showed me many of the things Dr Alexander describes in his book. Can I give you concrete evidence of those things? No one can but He who created us, and All.

    God is faithful and true. He will answer you, but you have to ask, and really want it. The book is accurate, and affirmed, at least for me, what had been revealed to me. There is nothing new under the sun.

    “What evidence do you have of this?”

    Pardon me, but I think perhaps you may find good information for your question in the book “Proof of Heaven”

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1451695195?pc_redir=1409830334&robot_redir=1

    The author is obviously a very intelligent man, having dedicated his life’s work to science and physically opening up people’s brains. He makes a very compelling argument for the existence of heaven. His experience of it changed his life so much that he now finds his life’s mission to integrate his knowledge of science and the physical universe with the gift he was given, that is, the spiritual foundation of everything: Love.

    Fellow FReeper, if I were to ask of you one thing in this life that I thought would answer your questions on this topic of life after death of your body, it would be to read this book.

    “In any case, the national parks should be turned over to the states or, better yet, privatized. If the Ted Turners, the Robert Redfords, or the Bill Gateses of the world dislike the idea, let them buy the lands with their own money and run them as they wish.”

    They ARE doing this, just not with the rocks and ice with scenic views. The individuals you mentioned give some of the largest donations to The Nature Conservancy, the largest private land owner in the U.S. Different from the Park Service system, they don’t just buy up the spectacular land, but some of the best farm and ranch land as well as as much land along waterways as possible. They ARE legitimately privatizing massive amounts of land for THEIR libtard agenda.

    Our Lord speaking to St. Catherine:

    “They [the homosexuals] not only fail from resisting the weakness [of fallen human nature] .... but they do even worse when they commit the cursed sin against nature. Like the blind and stupid, having dimmed the light of their understanding, they do not recognize the disease and misery in which they find themselves. For this not only causes Me nausea, but is disgusting even to the devils themselves whom these depraved creatures have chosen as their lords.

    For Me this sin against nature is so abominable that for it alone five cities were destroyed by virtue of the judgment of My Divine Justice, which could no longer bear their iniquity ....

    It is disgusting to the devils not because evil displeases them or because they find pleasure in good, but rather because their nature is angelic and flees upon seeing such a repulsive sin being committed. For while certainly it is the devil that first strikes the sinner with the poisoned arrow of concupiscence, nonetheless when a man actually carries out such a sinful act, the devil goes away.”

    (St. Catherine of Siena, El diálogo,
    in Obras de Santa Catalina de Siena, Madrid: BAC, 1991, p. 292)

    Dolan most certainly does not represent The Church.
