    On the contrary I know exactly what it is. I notice that in your reply you didn’t mention your own familiarity with Russell Kirk. I’ll take that to be a confirmation that you know nothing of him.

    I don't give a damn who he was. The idea that you can invoke a name without any personal support of a particular idea or argument that you are making your own, especially in order to dismiss the fundamental genius and revolutionary impact of the Doctrine of Negative Rights on American history is more than personally cowardly - it's ridiculous.

    If there is some argument you believe Kirk espoused that you agree with in this matter, out with it. But to invoke his name and expect people to simply toss the very meaning of their country in the trash is some sort of mental illness. If Kirk negated the fundamental importance and uniqueness of Negative Rights, then hold your hat and sit down - I disagree with him. And repeating his name with an aura of breathlessness and showing contempt for someone who doesn't share your codependency is NOT an argument.

    A fetish, yes. I'll give you that. But the invocation of his name is irrelevent. And there are oh, I don't know, one or two people through history who might agree with my understanding of the specific American importance of this issue.

    Thank you for sharing your fetish with everyone. If you ever want to actually own your own words and discuss specific issues, feel free to share. Otherwise, get help.

  • Muslims Declare War Against Catholicism, And Attack Priests And Monks...

    07/21/2014 7:41:31 PM PDT · 9 of 15
    Talisker to markomalley

    This article is absurd. The Cathars were not Muslim supporters. That Muslims spared Cathars and killed Christians was a function of the insanity of the so-called thinking of Muslim mass murderers, not Cathar support.

    Not to mention the fact that the Catholic solution to the Cathar “heresy” was to butcher every Cathar, man, woman and child, and exterminate them utterly. And that horror is given a shrug by Catholicism, while any particular Cathar fight is held up as an example of Cathar violence. Well yeah, when the Church is trying to exterminate an entire people, occasionally some of them fight back. But all the more reason to murder every single last one them - even if that ends up being a million people, right?

    It was because the Cathar extermination is so utterly indefensible that even today Catholics strive to create the most extreme lies about them to justify it. When they should just admit it was wrong on their part - that they still consider Cathar teaching heretical, but that the Cathars should never have been hunted down over 20 years of butchery and erased from existence - that maybe, just maybe, that didn’t represent what Jesus taught.

    But instead Catholics hang on and keep trying to justify that monstrousness even today, which seriously indicates that not much has changed in the Church from medieval times. And to go so far as to equate the Cathars with Muslims is just rank slander. Not to mention that the proper use of the word “heresy” is from within the ranks of the Church - as Cathars were not Catholics, it was impossible for them to be “heretics.” They simply did not believe in Church teachings, that’s all.

    And for that, the Church killed all of them them - and argues it was right to do so even today, and slanders their names, their beliefs, their teachings, their practices and their peaceful effects on the populations around them. The Catholics slaughtered the Cathars and the Muslims and the Jews, the Muslims slaughtered the Catholics and Christians and Jews, but the Cathars slaughtered no one and were exterminated themselves - yet the Cathars were the big fat dangerous problem?

    Yeah, well, peace be with you too.

    Or else.

    The American Revolution produced no radical social changes, it produced political independence and solidified self government. By contrast the French Revolution was a radical revolution, it involved a war against traditional French society, culture, and religion in addition to political change.

    What rot.

    The Declaration of Independence and Constitution based on the Doctrin of Negative Rights is THE most radical, revolutionary social and political shift in human history. EVERYTHING else is merely a shifting around of subject status under various guises, the French Revolution being merely another socialist experiment in seeing how far the people could be pushed in the name of the collective "we" before they realized it was yet another ruling elite "them' under a different name.

    If Kirk believed his own words he was a fool, otherwise he was just another RINO seditionist trying to parse away and trivialize the universality of the doctrine of innate human freedom promulgated by the Founders.

    The American colonials were defending their rights as Englishmen against a king who was violating them repeatedly.

    Partly true, but those English rights still were subservient to the king. American political theory broke with that by inverting the relationship of power completely through the doctrine of negative rights, which served to intrinsically negate royal sovereignty altogether.

    Very few people actually want freedom. What most people want is one or another level of being able to indulge in their own tyranny. That’s why tyrants rise in the first place, promising (usually in openly-secret code words) exactly that to their followers.

    So the brutal fact is that the only real difference between any factions, even in the US, is the acceptable level of tyranny and the acceptable cover story. Usually these issues are tempered by a sense of self-preservation, along the lines of any parasite’s need to keep its host too weak to fight back, but still strong enough to not die (and thus end the food feast).

    However as this is not a precise science, and as parasites trend to get drunk on their successes, successful collectivist ventures tend to end in total war. Which of course is why it is in big business’s interest to nurture collectivist catastrophes, for as Rhett Butler observed to Scarlett, the two times to make big money is when everything is collapsing, and when everything is being built back up out of the ashes. Which is also why American liberals are at their most absurd when they are hating corporate capitalism, since it is the abiding fuel for their very existence.

    Of course, it would be best if the whole issue of Congressional and Electoral votes was openly discussed by the proponants, since everyone knows that’s the bottom line here. That it’s not, doesn’t pass the smell test. So what deals or promises have been made behind the scenes?

    They had a term for her, but I've forgotten it. It was a name applied to a person who could not say no to a door-to-door salesman. The one I remember from my brief career selling magazines was totally upfront about her intentions. "I'll buy whatever you're selling," she said. I sold her Esquire and two other subscriptions. Salesmen back then had a name for such people.

    The term was "Democrat Soccer Mom," as you well know. Because that's the same person you want to read your crude imitation of an NLP programming meme so as to compel her to reject "Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas."

Why it's done is to express seething rage and the desire to harm as many people as possible, in any way possible.

    Now, remember, these were acts of violence against those the heretics believed were connected with the inquisition.

    LOL, so the Cathars attacked the representatives of the Church who were trying to judge them as heretics and burned them at the stake. A full 90 times over 90 years? Why, that's once a year! How did the Catholic Church stand it?

    It's such a mystery. Why would they do such a thing? You mean some of them actually broke under the strain of someone trying to kill them, and fought back, against their pacifist beliefs? Well then, that means no Cathar was pacifist! Kind of like the French Resistance in WWII. Did you know they actually attacked Gestapo agents? What other choice did the Nazis have than to murder entire villages? So you can see the source of the terrible choice those poor inquisitors were forced to make by the savage Cathars.

    Not to mention the fact that the inquisitors were there to save the Cathars souls - so that makes any attacks especially bad. You know, the more you point these things out, the more I realize that Jesus Christ Himself wanted those millions of Cathars killed. I mean just LOOK at their attitude! You don't let people live who act like that. Especially when they influence the peasants not to pay tithes and taxes to your Church! It's not only heresy, it's the collapse of civilization itself.

    The acts of violence against common everyday Catholics were even more numerous is not as noteworthy.

    But you also say that the Cathars attacked even Catholics who were NOT attacking them - even though you don't have any records of that. But you KNOW they attacked Catholics everywhere BECAUSE there are no records of this. Now that's what I call true scholarship. Any layperson would think that the lack of records within the environment of meticulous recordkeeping of the inquisition meant that nothing happened. But a true Catholic scholar understands that that is the where the most horrible sins are to be found. Those records that don't exist are why millions of Cathars had to die. Just as what a person doesn't actually have in his mind is precisely why a good inquisitor would know they had to be burned at the stake to save their souls.

    Historically speaking, these have been the true mysteries of the Church which have perpelexed and enraged millions - and thereby identified them as heretic who needed to be destroyed. See the brilliance? And they still work, for they are being exhibited here in their full glory on this very thread by YOUR monumental efforts, at which I stand in awe.

    No, I do not wish to retract. Yes, I wish to rephrase. What I should have said is that there is no way for me to adequately the intensity and depth of your hypocrisy in replying to your posts.

    Actually it is the statement of a person that understands that every protestant is his or her own pope.

    Unlike Catholics, who cannot think for themselves because they have to obey the Pope and let him do their thinking for them. Unless, of course, its one of those times they have to think for themselves, especially one of those times when they have to disagree with the Pope, in the name of following the Church which is distinguished by obedience to the Pope. Anyway, people who don't have a Pope just don't get it. The Pope is not a toy. If you have a Pope it means living a life of strict obedience to the idea of constantly having to follow the teachings of the Pope that you agree with, which Protestants cannot even begin to comprehend, since they just decide everything for themselves and wouldn't know spiritual discipline if it burned them at the stake.

And you want to know where thousand year old burned bodies are buried in France? How about under the bodies of all the dead from all the European wars from the last thousand years? Or are you saying the Albigensian Crusade never happened?

    You’re dismissed.

    I say there can be no more peace with islam than there could have been with the cathars or albigensians.

    Except the Cathars and Albigensians were nonviolent. Which of course you know. So you also know that your comparison of them with murderous Muslims is a deliberate lie.

    An excellent comparison, however, is with the Christians who are being slaughtered by the Muslims because they exist, or the Jews who are receiving rockets everyday because they exist. That's exactly why the Church murdered the Cathars - because they existed.

    Why lie? Why defend the indefensible? Why not simply say that the Church rejects Cathars teachings, but their slaughter was wrong even for the time. Something done by perverts in the Church for their own power, and not reflecting the teachings of the Church, let alone the teachings of Christ. Why continue to try to defend horror with lies? Do you think Christ wants that? If not, then who do you really serve?

    You also might want to check that "over a half-million people" from a reliable secular source.

    Good point, it was actually well over a million, some sources say over two million. It was a holocaust, which is why the Catholic commentators defending it here are truly vile, since they are comparing the murdered Cathars to Nazis or terrorists rather than the directly applicable comparison of them being treated like WWII Jews.

    In fact, Cathars were non-violent, peaceful people who won the hearts of the peasants through their gentleness and kindness. They were spiritually brave to an incredible degree, holding hands and singing psalms as they were executed. That's why Catholic apologists have to demonize them, because the horror of what the Church did to them was greatly multiplied by their innocence and devotion to God.

    Yet not only are they hideously slandered, their mass murder is denied entirely - the French did it, they died of natural causes. Well yeah, the French did it at the command and reward of the Church, and starvation and sickness are natural causes, as long as you don't mention it came from being hunted for years until you were trapped like animals.

    I must say, though, I've never seen a Catholic apologist express actual joy over the killings until this thread. Truth is always satisfying, even hard truths. So seeing the true Catholic bloodlust openly confirmed is, in its own way, a good thing. No, most Catholics are not deranged. But for those who are, such sadistic enjoyment is still a protected madness even after two thousand years of bestial slaughter.

    And that is a problem, I think. Its also why their lies flow like water - because in the eyes of the Church, heresy is not Catharism, it's disagreement. So no one reading this who is not an obedient Catholic should think the words of the Catholic apologists on this thread praising the slaughter only applies a thousand years ago. No, it applies now, to you and your family and children, today. Chopped and burned for the crime of heresy, praise be to God. Otherwise these apologists are hypocrites, but that's impossible - in fact, thinking they are murderous hypocrites is heresy.

    And you don't want to be a heretic, now do you?

    What’s the international symbol for “No swimming — Pacu present”?

    It's not a sign, it's a recording of Alessandro Moreschi singing Ave Maria.

    Homosexuals are doing this deliberately. They plan on using the force of government to destroy as many Christian businesses as they can, and then to attack churches that hold to the truth. It’s only a matter of time before pastors will be prosecuted for saying the homosexuality is a sin.

    Yep.

    The world is horrified over what is happening in America. They know damn well what would happen to them if America fell.

    The ONLY idiots on this planet stupid enough to actually BELIEVE in American collectivism are American liberals. Even their Leftist Rat and RINO handlers look at them with amazement at their rock-bottom stupidity.

    You're free to leave at any time. Is heresy from the demonic and does it need to be addressed?

    I don't think you understand. Your support for the mass murder of a half-million people in the name of Church teachings cancels you out.

    As a Catholic, and as a human being.

    In the name of those murdered over which you pronounced your joy, in mental and prayerful witness to the sea of their blood, the chopped bodies of their children, and the smell of the charred flesh of the burned families, all of which you praise NOW - not then - as a triumph of Church teachings and obedience to Jesus Christ, I reject you utterly.

    And I pray that you are insane. Because if you are not, then you are surely damned.

    Apparently we have a comprehension issue. Nowhere did I advocate or defend it. In fact, I said the opposite.

    Enough of your brazen lies. In response to a half-million Cathars being murdered, you said, quote: "And yes, Catharism has been settled. Permanently. Praise be to God! ...you better believe I celebrate its demise."

    "Settled."

    "Demise."

    MURDER.

    Get thee behind me.

    You’re just trying to be inflammatory and divisive. Protestantism has to be taken as a block, none of the millions of pro-life Protestants can be acknowledged, and yet Catholics can be carefully parsed and those who do not fit your description of Catholicism are simply not included in your claims?

    Please, this is sheer nonsense and you know it. Why are you doing this? Is it because the Pope just said that the rash of sex abuse scandals is “a leprosy in our home” and admitted that the pedophiles include “priests and even bishops and cardinals. And others, even more numerous, know about it but keep quiet, they punish without saying the reason why. I find this state of things untenable and it is my intention to confront it with the severity it requires”? Is that it?

    So should all of Catholicism be judged by these sex predators, the way you would lump together all the different Protestant churches and damn them all for the sake of those who deviate from Jesus’ teachings? If so, then how do you defend Catholics like Pelosi? Shall we get into details, or does this standard simply not matter for Catholics - only for Protestants?

    Again, why bother? Even a child can see that differences and failures happen in any human enterprise. Why not just admit that and stop trying to destroy those who have different beliefs? Why is it necessary for Protestantism to fall, in order for Catholicism to live? This is a child’s concept.

    It’s time to grow up.
