Skip to comments.The 'gods' aren't happy with new pope

In the print version of my column "MSNBC, NBC, and NPR
scorn man of God," I wrote: "It is important to note
that God Almighty is Master of the Catholic Church, not
Karol Wojtyla [i.e., Pope John Paul II] nor some
banausic news jockey anchored in New York." This
despite the fact that a few homosexual pedophiles
viewed the Church's altar boys as an exclusive self
replenishing dating service for those predisposed to
such barbaric debauchery notwithstanding.
Prior to the selection of Cardinal Ratzinger as Pope
Benedict XVI, the liberal media openly berated the
legacy and character of Pope John Paul II as he lay in
state. By their actions, they denounced the Holy Spirit
of the true God in the selection process of the new
pontiff, expressing what they alone knew to be proper
for the Catholic Church.
A black pope, an African pope or a Hispanic pontiff was
needed. Someone who would realize the need to be
contemporary to the day and times in which "we" live,
they clambered. This writer is personally surprised
they didn't call for a black, lesbian, pro-abortion
woman to lead the church. As long as she wasn't a
Republican, they no doubt would still be dancing in the
streets. But I digress.
To the dismay of these "gods" (small "g") their near
worst nightmare was realized. A Bible-believing
adherent to Catholicism was selected to lead the
Catholic Church. Pope Benedict was dubbed "God's
Rottweiler, the Enforcer and Cardinal No by
the "goddians from the "godhead" of the liberal media.
Gerard Baker put it well when writing: "The Church's
mission is to bear witness to the truth [of God]. The
truth [of God] is not something that needs redefining
each time a pope dies ("Shock! New Pope a Catholic,"
Timesonline.com, April 21, 2005). But to the mordant,
contumacious minded media elites, a sin against
their "humankind" had been committed.
The pouty Katie Couric delivered a homily on the polls
to the handful that still worship her show. She ranted
that 78 percent of American Catholics wanted the Church
to be less conservative ("The Today Show," April 18,
2005). But as the Media Research Center pointed out,
the only poll they were able "to locate with such a
finding was an early April CNN-USA Today-Gallup survey
of Catholics which found 78 percent said the next pope
should "allow Catholics to use birth control."
In other words, Couric purposely distorted the poll
findings to fit her homily. Her congregation will never
know that 59 percent of those responding when asked if
the next pope should "make church doctrine on abortion
less strict" responded "No."
CNN's Paula Zahn focused on how "many Catholic women
[where] praying that the white smoke from the Sistine
Chapel chimney will signal" a "revolution" changing the
church's policy on abortion, birth control and women
priests. She concluded with a plea from a 12-year-old
girl begging for the same opportunities as boys. But
the questions that beg answering the questions that
none of these hypocritical marplots will answer is: Who
are these women, and are their desires the will of the
They cannot answer because they do not believe. Their
theology is based upon feel-good sentimentality and
convenience. It is as elite as they are.
There was a time in America when it would have been
unimaginable to behave with such pagan disdain for men
of God, but in today's social climate, it is
permissible. We live in a seemingly parallel universe
where truth and honor are to be resisted at all cost.
The law-abiding are constrained, while the criminals
and lawbreakers are protected and cajoled.
In the past 12 months, we have witnessed the abuse of
young boys by homosexual pedophile predator priests who
were supposedly leading them into a life of service to
the God they claimed to serve. Yet the call goes forth
for homosexuals to be ordained. We have witnessed the
rape and murder of innocent children, while over a
period of years the legal system led by the American
Civil Liberties Union sought to protect the rights of
"Whatever things are true, whatever things are honest,
whatever things are just, whatever things are of good
report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any
praise, think on these things" (Philippians 4:8) has
been replaced by whatever is dishonest, whatever is
base, whatever is common, whatever reduces man and
woman to the depths of depravity, whatever is without
virtue, think, act on and promote those things.
Pope Benedict has been contemptuously labeled as "ultra
conservative." As if scriptural adherence in a minister
is anathema, America's crown cherub of wholesomeness,
Katie Couric, referred to the new pope as "known to be
quite conservative," contorting her face as if
something foul (apart from her tongue) were in her
mouth. Herein we evidence the avouchment of 2 Timothy
bump for later
Until these uber-liberals like the nutjobs at the NYTimes and Katie Couric join the Church, become a Cardinal, and are elected Pope, maybe they should STFU on where the Church stands. I'm betting dollars to donuts none of these clowns have seen the inside of a church since they were dragged there by their parents. They have absolutely no business trying to dictate to the Catholic Church who should be Pope.
My favorite lines:

Very good article. I like this part:
"Whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" (Philippians 4:8) has been replaced by whatever is dishonest, whatever is base, whatever is common, whatever reduces man and woman to the depths of depravity, whatever is without virtue, think, act on and promote those things.
(I don't know what contumacious means and I'm too lazy to find out tonight.)
Let me know if you want on/off this pinglist.
You damn betcha!
Contumacious: Very resistant to authority. Flagrantly insubordinate or rebellious.

I'm such a lazy slob. I knew an alert freeper would tell me.
I should find that website (nudge nudge, wink wink) and bookmark it.
I don't know the URL. I just click the icon on my browser toolbar, and it opens a space to the left of whatever page I'm on.
Okay, it's last resort time. I'll have to google it.
When some so-called news reader or writer starts citing polls you might as well ignore them. That's not reporting anything close to news that's trying to make it.
Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum;
Eminentissimum ac Reverendissimum Dominum,
Sanctae Romanae Ecclesiae Cardinalem Ratzinger
qui sibi nomen imposuit Benedictum XVI
Please freepmail me if you want on/off this list
It is amazing to me that many in today's society think they know more than God. They might as well openly say,
"How dare the Catholic Church follow the teachings of God?"
These are amazing times, but I am so proud of the Conclave, as they followed the will of the Holy Spirit.
It would be interesting to see how long the kooky liberal social engineering faction which has infiltrated the Catholic Church would last if the death penalty were instituted for pederasts.
The 'gods' just want a church in their own image. Fine. Found one.
