  • Pope Francis: ‘It’s Not Possible to Worship God While Making the Liturgy a Battleground’

  • Why Are Catholics Under Fire Over Roe V. Wade?

    I wonder how many will sit on their hands when the satanists (let’s call them what they are) grab a chalice and fling the Precious Blood across the sanctuary. Or perform a sex act on the altar... The worst desecration, sacrilege or blasphemy you can imagine is where they start.

    And I wonder how many of those who call themselves Christians will sit idly by and think out loud that we have it coming to us.

    Why Catholics? Maybe (and by maybe I mean definitely) people need to spend a little time praying about that. The devil directs his ire at his enemies. The predators go where the prey is.

    Explicitly though, the focus of the faith of Catholics is the phrase “This is My Body”, so too those words are the pinnacle of satan’s sacrament. The same words with opposite meanings repeated by the priests of God and the priests of satan.

    The devil knows his enemy, it defies reason that so many people who claim the title of Christian can’t, or won’t, understand that themselves.

    Assuming we live through this nightmare it’ll be fun to watch all the international companies jump through hoops to win back the hearts and wallets of the Russian people. It seems to me the only people all this virtue signaling is harming is the Russian civilian population... and us. I really wonder where we’re going to get our fertilizer this year.

    I noticed in the UK press yesterday that the defense team had requested the original photo shown at the top of the post and the accuser claimed she had lost it. That the next day an out of court settlement was announced seems very odd. Claims had been made recently that the photo was fake. Strange stuff.

    If religion is like socks they want everyone wearing sandals with them. Nothing like post-Christian Catholics waxing imbecilic over theology they don’t understand well enough to reject like honest apostates, although I haven’t met any of those yet either. Frankly they want everyone to wear frilly ankle socks and fishnets.

  • Pope supports same-sex civil unions in ‘apocalyptically scandalous’ interview

    Bergoglio (or Bergogandmagoglio) resigned the Papacy when he publicly became the vicar of pachamamma if he ever held the office in the first place. He is a manifest heretic (even for a jesuit) and now a public apostate: One can not be vicar of both Christ and pachamamma and for goodness sake he’s abandoned the title Vicar of Christ, relegating it to “historic title”.

    If you take a dump on your boss’ desk, that’s a resignation and no words are needed. If a Catholic honors a pagan deity that’s apostasy. This wasn’t offering incense to an effigy of the emperor, he enthroned the symbols of a demon on the altar of Almighty God. He took a dump on his Boss’ desk.

    I have no idea who is the Bishop of Rome or if there is a Bishop of Rome, but I know without question who is NOT Bishop of Rome. I am not and neither is Jorge Maria Bergoglio.

    I don’t know that any of the “Catholic” hospitals are still Catholic in anything other than name. They certainly are no longer administered or staffed by the religious orders that created the modern concept of hospitals (and universities) in the first place. A decade ago I was arranging surgery in a Catholic hospital and saw Chick Tracts (I think it was “Why is Mary Crying” even) on the desk where patients filled out paperwork. I took a picture and texted it to the Protestant administrator who just happened to be my cousin, she was appalled.

    She understood the mission of the hospital extended well beyond medical care and a serious conflict in spiritual expression created a house divided and harmed everyone. Bizarrely the hospital didn’t even have crucifixes in patient rooms until I asked about it (they put up “resurrexifixes” so that was a bit of an own goal), and the secular hospital across town had a full time Catholic priest chaplain while the Catholic hospital did not. They didn’t even have a consultant for Catholic medical ethics. The hospital was Catholic In Name Only.

    I tell my kids as they reach high school age that I’d rather hear a thousand f-bombs than one irreverent misuse of the word God. I wish this generation had some variety in its profanities and obscenities, Gen-X did. Of course we also understood boundaries, we certainly tested them but we knew they existed. That’s all gone.

  • 'This is the road to socialism': South Carolina governor Henry McMaster says businesses are failing because staff 'make more by staying at home' on Biden's unemployment payments his state has opted out of

    I’ve been trying to find a way out of our national downward spiral for awhile and even though I believe the problem and solution are spiritual we’re not going to agree to the specifics before it’s far too late, if ever.

    We live in the richest, most powerful civilization in human history. Not only that but we are citizens of the richest, most powerful nation in that civilization and the benefits of citizenship are not reaching the majority of us. I think part of that is due to the bizarre way we look at citizenship in the first place, we are stockholders not dependents. Every one of us is “all in” on investing in the success of this business. We invest our lives and our children and the return on that ultimate investment for the overwhelming majority is despicable to the point of being demonic.

    Our cities, healthcare and education systems, our basic infrastructure across the board are all a disgrace. Not only is there no excuse for it, there’s not even a reason for it. Well, not a good reason. The monsters who insist on running generations of Americans through school systems that offer zero educational benefits are digging their own graves right along with the rest of us. The more energy we all pour into the anxiety and panic over basic needs like medical care, housing and food the less energy there is for production.

    If we ARE capitalists we should start acting like it across the board. There should be dividends for investment in the success of the nation based on national performance. That used to be provided by good schools, decent medical services, public safety, good neighborhoods and clean cities; what we used to call the American Dream. We were more than the Land of Opportunity, an American citizen who did his part lived a life that was the envy of the world.

    Entire segments of industry (food service, retail and cubicle farms, I’m looking at you) that are no longer viable need to be overhauled or eliminated as we know them. Millions of Americans are working in conditions that are nothing other than soul destroying and that is a massive danger to all of us. The cost in human capital is a disaster.

    Instead of compounding the best our system has to offer we’ve inflated every possible negative consequence and made them the norm.

    And I think this is a very Jordan Peterson type principle: We need to fix our own mess before we try to fix the rest of the world.

    We are living in a bread and circuses nightmare where the bread is mouldy and the circus is, well, a circus. It’s not right, it’s wrong and it’s stupid. So it’s past time to reconsider our approach, if someone can receive more by staying home than working then maybe those jobs aren’t worth doing and need to be eliminated. MAYBE if someone is content to stay at home we don’t want them in the workforce to begin with. After all they’ve been educated to the point of imbecility. We’ve reached the point where spending several hours of a day at a job we don’t particularly enjoy because there’s something worth getting out of it no longer motivates us.

    Perhaps if we had an education system that provided knowledge worth having, that would open horizons beyond video games, sports and movies, we’d have a citizenry motivated to live lives worth living. But we don’t.

    Oh good grief. I’m arriving at this opinion at age 52 after watching the system grind down two generations of Americans. It’s not working anymore if it ever did and the idea that Americans aren’t chained to their jobs at least figuratively betrays a total lack of awareness of the people around you. Are you kidding me? We live in the richest nation in history, we, the people, built it and we, the people are not living in anywhere near the security and comfort that the investment of generations has made. Someone’s looting the place and the investors are getting ready to pull out which isn’t going to go well for anyone. Millions are one paycheck away from foreclosure on their homes, buried in student loan debt and unable to afford reasonable health care IN THE RICHEST NATION IN HISTORY! Not only rich but so rich we could throw money at every social program the left could dream up and it wouldn’t even cause a financial hiccup... which raises the question: WHERE is all the money going? Because it’s not staying here and it’s not raising the standard of living. So stuff the old way of doing it, it’s broke. Morally bankrupt and corrupt to its core. Bushes, Romneys, McCains, Powells... globalists all. Frankly they’re in the same club as the Clintons and the Pelosis.

    There are entirely too many Americans locked in dead end, pointless jobs because they’re living paycheck to paycheck in the richest nation in the history of the world and that’s wrong. By virtue of our citizenship we all hold an equal stake in this nation, starting on an equal footing no life holds more value than another, no one can give more than everything and eventually that’s what every person gives to this country: everything. I’m referring of course to those who play by the rules. But let’s also discuss our welfare victims who have, for generations, been told they aren’t good enough to make it in the US and they need the kind charity of big government just to survive. That those government programs destroyed the traditional family wasn’t accidental either. That whole series of injustices is probably a crime against humanity perpetrated by the very people who lied that it was assistance.

    Beyond all that, the model you present is antiquated, and I don’t mean it’s bad, but I definitely mean it’s no longer true. Americans by the millions are locked into pointless jobs by personal debts that never should have been a thing. Jobs they hate, employed by massive international companies that have long since broken the fundamental contracts between employee and employer. The entire bloated system of public and private enterprise is teetering on a knife edge. We need to overhaul it from the ground up immediately. Like tomomrrow or we won’t have a chance at a peaceful reorganization. We’ve turned humans into commodities and that’s just not working.

    For my entire life the left has called the right evil and the right has called the left stupid. I think that’s backwards. The left is evil. It destroys what it can not possess so that none may have it. More importantly, the right is stupid (and I include myself), we’re led around by a bunch of globalist “moderates” who live for the accumulation of power and wealth in their own group. Romney and anyone named Bush are the posterchildren of an elite who make the elites of the left look like amateurs. .. Well they would if they weren’t two sides of the same coin. I firmly believe that’s what they hate about Trump more than anything, he’s not in their club and they’re closing ranks against him. And if they win they’ll go back to business as usual squeezing the life from the people of the United States. Screw them and their idiotic, suffocating system.

    I remember the dems mocking Reagan because the debt passed 1trillion on his watch, they were idiots then and they’re still idiots. We seem to be locked in the past as well. I blame the “moderate” Republican leadership and I think they know full well what they’re doing.

    This is not the industrial age and we are not in a post-war recovery economy but leadership is feeding us what amounts to bs about what this country can afford and more importantly what we should be doing with the unprecedented wealth the US economy generates. No American citizen should be living paycheck to paycheck, nobody should be worried about healthcare costs or student loan debt. There’s no financial need for it and we’ve been looking at the American people wrong for a long time. We can blame the marxists for that. Don’t look at “the people” as dependents, we’re investors and we invest everything we have. The return on that investment sucks right now, we’re mentally locked in the early 80s recovering from the carter nightmare. That PoV doesn’t match reality.

    Too many people are locked in jobs making buggy whips while the economy pumps out brand new cars. Entire industries need to be allowed to die, big business needs to be allowed to fail. Our “poor” need to be allowed to take ownership of what they’re investing their lives in. We ALL need to be allowed to take ownership of what we’re investing our lives in.

    Residential property taxes need to end, welfare needs to end, social security needs to end. Medicare, medicaid, WIC, obamacare... all of it needs to end. Those are the methods our governing class use to pay dividends to the stockholders and they all suck. Dump them all and start doing actual profitsharing. $5k per month to every US citizen (that’s what this social services disaster and big business prop up is costing us) and let us do our own thing. A LOT of people will definitely stop working but a lot of people are trapped in jobs that have no reason to exist as it is. There would be chaos. People won’t work for asshats anymore. People will do things they actually enjoy. This is turning into a manifesto and it’s all because I wondered what the GDP was a few weeks ago. We own this place and we’re living like serfs. That needs to end. And so does this screed. I apologize but it’s getting me worked up.

    I was a loyal member of the Conservative Politics As Usual Brigade until a couple of weeks ago when I looked up the US GDP during a conversation. We’re hovering around $20 trillion. I can’t even wrap my brain around that. I don’t understand why we’re even running a deficit but I do understand that the massive wealth our nation generates is not benefiting our citizens the way it should be. All that money is going somewhere and it’s not going into the pockets of the primary investors, the citizens. We invest our lives and our children into this country and the return on investment these days is horrible. We need to renegotiate, and the debt can jump off a cliff.

    I can’t believe it took this to bring me out of my self imposed hiatus. No more corporate/business bailouts period. If an industry or particular company truly is important then it’ll survive. If the economy does need to be stimulated, and it probably will need a significant shot, then bail out the taxpayers and let us decide what business should survive by how we use the money. The airlines, insurance, healthcare, pharma tech, entertainment/media and banking/finance industries can all go pound sand. Their business models are antiquated, barbaric and immoral.

    I believe in capitalism, I believe in the free market but a society needs a common moral foundation for any economic system to function and we threw that out long ago. Any system, economic or political, will work when the people are moral, nothing works when they aren’t.

    Corporate America has lost sight of the fact that the bottom line is NOT the next quarterly P&L.
