Guest Post: When an Abortionist becomes a Proselytizer of Catholics

From the looks of it, this woman may be meeting
her Maker soon. Please join me in praying for her
conversion and the conversion of Church leaders
who give her a platform to scandalize the faithful.
Editor's note: 

Talk about turning the faith on its head! We live in times when the orthodox (like the dubia cardinals) are sent into the desert and the Herods, Pilates, and pharisees become the honored teachers of the faithful. 

Jesus predicted it when he said a time would come when good was called evil and evil good, when people would prefer to have their ears tickled than to hear the truth.  I'm not sure we realized the reality that the people he meant occupied the highest level of the Church. Lord, have mercy on us. Christ, hear us!

Birds of a Feather Flock Together...and That Includes Vultures and Other Birds of Prey...

...who are preying on the flock rather than praying for them. And so it goes.

Dissenting Jesuit James Martin is speaking at the D.C. priests' symposium, an alumni event for Theological College in October. If I were an alumnus priest I'd be skipping this event. But hey, who am I to judge?

The Jesuits are, to say the least, an odd flock these days, reference their superior "baptizing" himself as "officially the first Superior Jesuit in Buddhist Baptism.” And that is coming from the Jesuits' own website which includes this disturbing rainbow image re-posted with an article at OnePeterFive.

Another Suspicious Death LInked to the Clintons

Haiti Official Who Exposed The Clinton Foundation Is Found Dead

An Anniversary from Hell

St. Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, California
Today is the 50th anniversary of the Land O' Lakes Conference.  Isn't Land O' Lakes a kind of butter? Not that Land O' Lakes although that's what I thought of when I first heard about the infamous event years ago.

No, the Land O' Lakes conference was organized by Holy Cross Father Theodore Hesburgh who was the president of Notre Dame University. It's purpose? To revamp the idea of a Catholic University and bring it into the "modern world."

Actually it was more about being accepted by the world and getting a hand in Uncle Sam's generous pockets. The way to do that was to separate the idea of Catholic education from Catholic authority which their statement did.

Camp Kreitzer's Apiary is in the Shenandoah County News

We're doing our part for the environment. Honeybees are a major pollinator of crops, not to mention flowers.

 Check out the article in the Mountain Courier here. And be nice to honeybees. Don't put chemicals on your law. Dandelions and white clover are big sources of nectar for honeybees. Besides, they're wildflowers and beautiful. And all those chemicals aren't good for you either! They run off into the water supply. Spend all that lawn service money on the kids and grandkids!

Guest Post: Cardinal Meisner, Pope Benedict and the Leaky Bark of Peter

Mayday, mayday -- calling all shepherds who will
"resist the dictatorship of the spirit of the age."
Benedict XVI: The Bark of Peter is Sinking

By David Martin

The Church continues to lament the passing of Cardinal Meisner of Cologne, who was an outspoken opponent of Amoris Laetita which breaks with tradition by allowing divorced and civilly remarried people to receive Communion. Surprisingly, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI sent a letter of tribute to be read at Meisner's funeral on July 15. In the letter he says:

A Great Quote from Archbishop Chaput: "Heroes not Haters!"

St. John the Baptist, conscience-
pricker extraordinaire!
Commenting on the recent nasty article in La Civilita titled EVANGELICAL FUNDAMENTALISM AND CATHOLIC INTEGRALISM IN THE USA: A SURPRISING ECUMENISM, Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia made this statement:
Catholics are called to treat all persons with charity and justice. That includes those who hate what we believe. It demands a conversion of heart. It demands patience, courage and humility. We need to shed any self-righteousness. But charity and justice can’t be separated from truth. For Christians, Scripture is the Word of God, the revelation of God’s truth – and there’s no way to soften or detour around the substance of Romans 1:18-32, or any of the other biblical calls to sexual integrity and virtuous conduct. Trying to do so demeans what Christians have always claimed to believe. It reduces us to useful tools of those who would smother the faith that so many other Christians have suffered, and are now suffering, to fully witness.

Dr. Mengele, call your office! Doctors in U.K. say Charlie Gard Case is Hopeless....Why?

....because he will have no "quality of life."  

Now why does that remind me of the German doctors in the Third Reich who ran the T4 euthanasia program? You know, that was the program:
to kill incurably ill, physically or mentally disabled, emotionally distraught, and elderly people. Adolf Hitler initiated this program in 1939, and, while it was officially discontinued in 1941, killings continued covertly until the military defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945. (Source)

The Latest Absurd Manifestations of Transgenderism

My Friend "Joe" the Bullhorn

Which instrument are you in
the Church Militant orchestra?
I used to sidewalk counsel at an abortion mill with a man whose style offended a lot of folks. He was
loud and could be abrasive. When he had the bullhorn, some of the folks on the prayer line got uneasy. "What will he say next?" He was especially hard on the men bringing the women to the abortion mill. I loved him! But, I admit, sometimes he even made me cringe.

You know what? He saved a lot of babies. God used him with his abrasive style to reach the hearts of some who were impervious to the velvet glove. I particularly remember the day we saved a little Muslim baby, the sixth child in her family. It was my abrasive friend who did the counseling when the couple pulled into the driveway.

I thought of him this morning while reading comments on the post I wrote yesterday about Catholic bloggers who condemn other bloggers for condemning.

The Latest on Charlie Gard

Five hour neurologist exam by expert from New York. Keep praying!

The Humorous Situation of Catholic Bloggers who Condemn Bloggers for Condemning

There's an old saying that if you are pointing a finger at someone, there are three fingers pointing back at you. It's true; try it.

And so I'm always amused to find Catholics in the blogosphere who consider themselves kind and luving as they condemn others "for condemning."

Fr. Z and Mike Voris are regular targets as well as anyone who dares to criticize the faux mercy of Pope Francis and the disastrous impact he is having on Church teachings.

St. Telemachus: The Difference One Courageous Soul Can Make!

Where Would You be in the Roman Coliseum in 404 AD?
Give us the grace, Lord, to have
the courage of St. Telemachus.

Would you be sitting in the "sky box" among the pampered and perfumed elite of Rome waiting to watch the "show" begin with excited anticipation?

Would you be in the crowd out for a day of bread and circuses to watch the "match" between the gladiators anticipating the second act when the Chrisitians faced the beasts?

Would you be among the Roman soldiers or those in charge of the animals "just doing their jobs" as they bring the prisoners into the arena and release the hungry animals?

Would you be among the Christians singing and praising God as they faced death?

Or would you be like the lone monk, Telemachus who arriving in a strange city, followed the crowd to the coliseum, and was so horrified when the gladiators began fighting that he leaped over the wall into the arena, stepped between them, and cried out three times, "In the name of Christ, forbear!" The outraged crowd stoned him to death.

24 Congressmen Voted to Fund Transgender Surgery for the Military! Here's the Dirty Two Dozen.

How delusional is this? Would you 
want to be in a communal shower with him?
The 24 Congressmen who voted to use OUR MONEY to fund transgender surgery in the military should all be sent packing including Virginia rep Barbara Comstock. They are faux conservatives. If they don't have the brains to know when a man is a man and a woman is a woman, they sure don't belong making decisions that impact our lives.

Not only that, but surgery does not solve the problems of these gender-confused folks. The suicide rate among the transgendered is 20% higher than the non-transgendered. Dr. Paul McHugh, former head of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins, calls transgender feelings a disorder of assumption similar to that experienced by emaciated anorexics who consider themselves obese and literally starve themselves to death. It's a mental disorder! According to an article at CNS News:

On Grammar and The Abolition of Man

What is education doing
to our children?
I just finished reading C.S. Lewis' The Abolition of Man, and, it illustrates what I was saying in my last post -- words matter. Not only that, but the way words are put together, i.e., grammar, matters as well. The saying, "The pen is mightier than the sword." cuts two ways. The pen can be used to spread the truth and goodness as Dante does in The Divine Comedy or the pen can be used to spread the lie and evil like the works of Marx and Hitler.

Lewis' book is about education and how relativism leads to the "abolition of man" making him little more than a social experiment of his "conditioners." It begins with a discussion of an unnamed work Lewis calls the Green Book which is a "little book on English intended for 'boys and girls in the upper forms of schools.'" Lewis doesn't name the book or the authors because, "I do not want to pillory two modest practising (sic) school-masters who were doing the best they knew." At the same time he decries the evils he sees in the "actual tendency of their work."

He particularly emphasizes a "momentous" paragraph where the authors attribute statements of judgment to personal feelings when they write, "This confusion is continually present in language as we use it. We appear to be saying something very important about something: and actually we are only saying something about our own feelings."

Words Matter!

Fr. Martin's Grammar Problem

Liars know it for sure. Remember when Bill Clinton played games with words. He "did not have sex with that woman." Of course, it all depends on your definition of sex. And then there's the definition of the word "is." Liars like to play with word meanings and that's what Robert Greving illustrates in his article. And no matter how many liars like Fr. James Martin try to dance on the head of a pin the words will still mean what they say -- whether it's truth or a lie.

The homosexual attraction is disordered. It is not "differently ordered" any more than a man's attraction to his dog or to using asphyxiation or BDSM to get it on. Call things what they are and don't play the word games so popular with the Left who never met an idea they couldn't warp and twist. Words have power. Let's make sure the words we use advance truth!
