St. Nicholas Would Punch this Heretic in the Face


Uncertain as to what I ought to say about this man, I will let his own words condemn him.

"I believe, of course, that it's the Body and Blood of Christ, but you know, as Pope Francis said, communion is not a reward for the perfect.  It is medicine for the sick.  It is medicine for those who need it.   So, you know, you look at the Last Supper, I mean, were the disciples to whom Jesus gave communion all perfect?  Absolutely not.  I mean, he gave communion to Judas, for pete's sake.  So, I think we need to get away from this idea that you need to be perfect in order to approach the communion rail."


You must be in a state of grace to receive the Eucharist. Jesuit Fr. James Martin is wrong. If you receive the Eucharist in a state of sin--if you're "not perfect" and in a state of grace--then you eat to your own condemnation, and you are receiving the Eucharist unworthily.


Some priests "just don't believe all that bullshit." Apparently.

UPDATE:  Apparently, I'm not the only one shocked by this man's apathy towards the truth of Catholic teaching.  Even Vox Cantoris has taken note of this priest over at his blog.  I suppose Fr. James Martin is becoming one of the "power players" on the side of darkness that tears at the Church.  Keep an eye out for his crap, folks.

Eventual Government Clampdown on Internet Discourse

It's coming, folks.  You know this already, I hope.  The imminent destruction of this wonderful playground of dialect and rhetoric.  The wolves have surrounded the rabbit warren.  This incredible experiment in free thought is ending soon.  I wonder if we have ten years, even?  I hope I am wrong.  I don't think I am, though.

Aurini doesn't think this possibility is wrong, either.

He's taken the liberty this month of informing one and all that YouTube is planning to pull ad revenue from alternative voices--aka "anything other than liberal voices"--from YouTube contributors.

Davis Aurini 
And, you know, I don't think I need to tell you people that YouTube, Facebook--these large conglomerations--these are a little bit more than just private companies. Okay? These are archivalists. These are librarians by the very nature of the work they do, and the dominance they have in the industry--they have a moral responsibility to protect freedom of speech, to protect information.
...

Ripping the ad revenue away from people the way that YouTube is threatening to do with these new terms of service--this has a chilling effect on freedom of speech.
...

What YouTube is trying to do, is turn it into the Disney Channel. So, if you want to talk garbage about the Kardassians, or Paris Hilton, or if you want to, you know, review the latest Avengers movie, that stuff's all okay. But as soon as you want to have an actual conversation...it's turning into the corporate world. The corporation is taking over the entire world. These speech guidelines that you're expected to obey at work are becoming the standards for everyone everywhere.

Just hearing him speak on the matter leaves a chilling effect upon yours truly.  You know, sometimes I toss around the idea of starting my own little forum.  Just for kicks.  My own little Toxic Trad forum, full of little Toxic Trads like myself who can have big scary conversations about those frightful topics that get you banned from other "happy fun clubs."  However, I wonder how long I will even be allowed to continue this ongoing blog on Blogger--owned by Google, might I add--before the megacorp comes along and tells me that I am stating hate speech. Because, if you haven't been paying attention lately, Christianity is becoming transformed into hate speech, and this is a modern family nowadays:


Clearly, these men should adopt a little boy.

But it is not just Davis Aurini who's serving as a regular Paul Revere against corporate groupthink.  An amazing development occurred just a week later.  Matt Drudge demonstrated his support for Alex Jones' show, Infowars, by spontaneously dropping in to Jones' studio to discuss the impending constriction of our Internet freedom.  

There, on Inforwars, Drudge warned how copyright laws are coalescing to ban independent media outlets on the internet. He warned to stop operating in the playground of Facebook, Twitter, and other corporate domains. He recounted a chilling moment when he was confronted by a Supreme Court judge:
I had a Supreme Court Justice tell me to my face it’s over for me. 'It's over for you. They’ve got the votes now to enforce copyright law, you’re out of there. They’re going to make it so you can’t even use headlines.' To have a Supreme Court Justice say to my face--that it’s over--they’ve got the votes, which means time is limited.

"That will end (it) for me – fine – I’ve had a hell of a run."

So, imagine a world where you cannot even visit a news aggregation site. You're left with going back to CNN, MSNBC, or FoxNews. Did you like that in the 90s? How about getting your news in a controlled fashion off of Facebook feeds or official Salon tweets? It is getting to the point where like-minded people who are not liberals will be incapable of discussing current events with each other any longer.

Prepare yourselves, folks. Once the Archons of Evil get their talons around the Internet, this digital wild west "free love" era is over, and you're stuck with whatever the executives feed you.

I suppose that, for this reason--now, more than ever--it would be a great idea to support those media sources that are struggling to maintain their originality, their purity, and their survival. Here, I shall now mention The Remnant. Now, more than ever--during this insane Synod Against the Family that we are all gaping at in horror--the Remnant is needed like no other time in the Church's post-Vatican II springtime winter.

The Remnant is currently struggling. Its cost as a high-ranking website is not offset by income, postage costs for the print edition--which they rightly insist continue--are going up and up, and also The Remnant is a small family operation that is not staffed by employees. At this time in the game, The Remnant should be thriving, not surviving. I would encourage any of you folks passing by my neck of the woods and reading this now to get a subscription to The Remnant, and perhaps give a little extra. These people are fighting the good fight for the West at great personal cost.

Sheep bite

Many times, the laity of the Church are called the sheep, while the priests are referred to as shepherds.

Now, yesterday I took my kids to a pumpkin patch where they have a little "petting" zoo, and there, I was almost bitten by a pig.  I thought it hilarious at the time.

But a thought entered my mind.  Even farm animals will bite, kick, and ram you if you abuse them.  I suppose the same could be said about an abused herd of sheep?

Disturbing Images This Week: The West is Ripe for Harvest

I've seen three images in the past week that I've had a few thoughts on.  I will share them with you passers-by for your morbid entertainment.  You voyeur, you.


#1

This pathetic picture comes off of Heartiste's site.  It struck me the most alarming (so far) from his collection, titled: Goodbye America (in a photo).  Young Western men are transformed into absolutely pathetic versions of their forbears.  Our collective weakness screams for submission to some other culture's conquest.


A millennial beta male clings desperately to his disgusted "partner."

Just look at how the weak beta clings for life to his strong, stoic, could-care-less female companion.  He's troubled, but she could give a crap.  This reversal almost seems like a parody.  One wonders if she's reminiscing of a better, more "hard-core" relationship with a past alpha.  Is not she to be clinging to him for security, assurance, and affirmation?  What a generation of males we've got here.  The Mexicans should have no problems with supplanting this poor stock in no time flat.


#2

Here's something disturbing.  Comes right off of Vox Cantoris' page.

An artistic depiction of the act of sodomy.

This is not marriage.  This is not love.  This is not something that should be tolerated.  There are no gifts from this.  This is not a family.  As I view this, I cannot help but recall the wicked Fr. Rosica and his demonic push to force the Church to accept and embrace homosexuality.  Yes, this is the same Fr. Rosica who threatened to sue blogger Vox Cantoris for daring to comment on Rosica's public statements.

Homosexuality is evil, it is a vice, it has been known to be a mental disorder, and sodomy used to be criminalized.  In times past, leaders would protect their people from this kind of corrupt, base, diabolic filth.  Now, effeminate clergymen are trying to force laity, such as myself, to shut the hell up about this crime of our time--perhaps to justify some sort of Lavender cabal that already exists in the Church's hierarchy.


#3

This little gem comes right off of my own digital camera.


Freemason pride at my downtown parish.

I saw this on the way in to the Novus Ordo Mass at the downtown cathedral, here in Tulsa, OK.  I am pretty sure that the man and his companion who rides in this truck received the Eucharist on Sunday--as it seems that just about everyone went up for juice and crackers except us.  I highly doubt that the African priest of the parish explained to the Freemason that he is only heaping condemnation upon himself by consuming the Eucharist--being an excommunicated soul, and all.

I snapped the picture, my family went inside, and we sat through the service which seemed like an endless ritual of self-worship.  When the collection basket passed, I insisted that we give the parish nothing.

I am unsure I would even want this parish to continue to exist if it merely continues to turn a blind eye towards the problems of our time--focusing on, instead, love.  And love.  And oh, by the way, love.  The SSPX Mass that we are trying to attend is only bi-weekly.  That means that every other week, we've gotta fulfill our Sunday obligation somewhere.  At this point, I would rather go to a reverent Hispanic Mass.

Again, folks.  I'm now in the camp of the Society.

Voris: A Protestant-Styled Shill of Divisiveness

The wife and I were reviewing the "Voris attack against the Society" situation.  And, you know, the more I listen to Voris and company, the more he sounds like a divisive bitter shill for modernists.  Furthermore, the entire vibe that I get from ChurchMilitantTV is that they are like some sort of Protestant megachurch organization, such as Church on the Move, LifeChurch, or Guts Church (all, here in Tulsa, OK).  CMTV and its donors--along with Fr. Paul Nicholson and his ridiculous charges of "Society Masses are more evil than satanic masses" --the whole lot of them come off as easily duped patsies of people with burning hateful agendas.

I immediately felt that their weekly series against the Society came off as bitter attacks and nothing more.  However, at first, I did not realize this fact fully with my intellect.  I thank Remnant contributor Chris Jackson for much of the disentangling of the twisted accounts coming from Voris.

I'll give Voris and company credit for exposing a few corrupt cardinals here and there.  I'll take that.  However, until their organization can shed their papolatry, admit that Pope Francis has stacked the deck against Catholicism with his appointees (to say the least), and get off their idiotic--and almost cult-like--"hate SSPX bandwagon," I will not be taking Michael Voris as seriously as I did in 2010.

KK the King Who Cannibalizes!

So, there I was, reading The Remnant's latest piece about how the next Synod will be a confluence of queer-loving Cardinals who will work to secretly open the portal to Hell and usher in a new age of darkness, when somehow I stumbled upon Kaesekopf's latest bullshit at The Echo Chamber.

After taking in the very somber and depressing news that is the next Synod--an event that will dwarf Vatican II in the output of its evil fruit--I had a hankering to visit my old colleagues back at Suscipe Domine.  Unfortunately, the ban of yours truly is still ongoing, and I am still forever locked outside of the city walls and left to wander from crossroad, to atoll, to gypsy camp, and wherever else there are scant groups of gathered Traditional Catholics.

Much to my delighted amusement--or embarrassment for him (I can never decide)--little KK was up in a tizzy because he couldn't stand people discussing geocentric theory.  It's a fun topic to delve in to, and it is a topic that is hardly worth getting emotional about just because it is a little different from your agenda as moderator.  Nevertheless, little KK decided he had to kick out Cassini for talking about geocentrism "agenda pushing" for a full two weeks.  I hope you check in here, Cassini, and give us all a shout out!      

Padraig rightfully was confuzzled at KK's heavy-handed iron fist, and he stated: Boy, it sure must be nice to have absolute power to silence dissent...  To Padraig, I can only say: Watch out!  You have yet to succumb to the Stockholm Syndrome that the rest of the captive members of that forum are under.  Don't step out of line, lest you be cut off from all of the people you invested your time in.  KK could give two farts about your spiritual well-being, any Catholic encouragement you need, or anything that does not pertain to meeting his agenda--which is fulfilling his ego.

And, once more, KK proves that he does not want a discussion forum.  He does not want people discussing at all.  He wants an echo chamber where everyone agrees with him.  Like Michael Voris, instead of working to make and keep allies (as folks at the Remnant pleaded for him to), he ends up cannibalizing his followers instead.

I just love the "Banned Members" thread of Suscipe Domine forum.  Whenever I need to know the latest dull-minded maneuver of KK--whenever I want to see a poor imitation of what a good Catholic host is supposed to be--I can always check out the "Banned Members" thread of The Echo Chamber.  There, we can bear witness to a whole cacophony of zany emotional decisions on the part of a young man with a server.  It's a damned shame that so many of the online Traditional Catholic community is ensnared in such a perilous environment.  I wonder if he will be as immature as this when he's married (hopefully) and in his mid-thirties.  Somehow, I can't see him growing up--which is a shame for the group of people subject to his whims.

Another shame is that I cannot ask my old colleagues about all of these new questions I might have about the Society, now that I've decided to attend a chapel on a bi-weekly basis.  I'm quite new to this, and my old circle of friends was well-versed in the life of a Society-chapel-attending Traditionalist.  I'll just have to make due with the highways and byways I'm relegated to.

Here's a picture of the geocentric universe, according to a vision of St. Hildegard of Bingen.

Toodles.

Here is a link to a discussion of St. Hildegard's Universe.

Reporting In: Voris' Assault is Driven Back

In a previous post, I stated how ChurchMilitantTV's documentary about the SSPX was satisfactorily the comprehensive documentary that I expected from them.  I further stated:
Objectively speaking, I can find nothing I disagree with in the presentation. It seems like a plain and simple presentation of Church history.
This just goes to show how poorly educated and empty of facts I am on this issue.  I say this, because Chris Jackson of The Remnant has managed to present a very detailed point-by-point refutation of everything that Michael Voris claimed.  It is detailed, rigorous, in-depth, and complete.  I wish to offer the most sincere and public thanks to Chris Jackson as is possible over the internet.  In his beginning paragraphs, he wrote the following:
In the days following the release of the video, however, I began to receive numerous requests to respond to it and issue a rebuttal. As it turns out there are many Catholics out there who are attracted to the Society as a potential option due to their spiritually barren Neo-Modernist dioceses, which are only getting worse under Francis. However, they are concerned due to things they hear about the Society from Neo-Catholic sources, such as Michael Voris and his Church Militant TV. As I received more of these requests, I began to realize that there are a large number of faithful Catholics out there who are just coming to the realization that there is a crisis in the Church. These Catholics are new to Tradition and are not very familiar with all of the previous arguments and apologetics hashed out over the years regarding the SSPX. They have very limited time and they are looking for one-stop-shopping to read up quickly on a very important issue for themselves and their families.
Yes, indeed, this describes me and mine.  Our family has been struggling with whether or not the SSPX is for us for almost a month, now.  This "debate" is precisely what our family needs to hear.  We need to be clear on what the issues and arguments are, and we need champions to come out and explain precisely where they stand and technically why they stand there.  Over at Facebook, shortly after an article that Jackson had already written for previous shorter CMTV episodes attacking the SSPX, I said the following:

There are so many people who already know this debate and are familiar with the terminology. They are confident enough to joke about different statements. But if you're new to this perennial argument--as I am new--then you find that everyone else's seasoned flippant behavior comes off as a sort of ad hominem rhetoric, and I'm left asking "is that all they got?" I am looking forward to point-by-point rebuttal.

His response:
Laramie, I wish I had the time or I would have. Perhaps next week if I can do it.

Well, you didn't disappoint, Mr. Jackson.  For that, I thank you very much.  As I keep saying, this fight needs to happen.  Because, clearly, the hierarchy of the Church isn't going to make anything clear for anyone any time soon. I am thankful to know I am not the only one who thought this:
This may sound odd, but after watching this video I believe we must thank Mr. Voris for producing “Catholi-Schism.” For it has summed up in a nice package all of the misinformation about the SSPX through the years and gathered it in one place. As such, it provides a great opportunity to unravel each of these arguments in a detailed response.
Indeed.  The cards are on the table, we can see the cards of all of the players, and we can make a determination as to who is right and justified.  For years, people have gone on and whispering to each other, "Oh, the Society.  They're schismatics."  Or, "Aren't they heretics?"  Or: "Stay away from them.  They're excommunicated by the pope."  I am hopeful that this fight that CMTV has stirred up will bring forth all of the issues that, in the past, have been unclear to people such as myself.  I am confident that the Traditional Catholic community will meet this challenge adequately and patiently.  

Again, folks, if you've watched Michael Voris' CMTV documentary, Catholi-Schism (which, strangely, is not featured on YouTube as the rest of their videos typically are), then I recommend you read this excellent article by Chris Jackson:


Will it prove to be TL;DR for the people at ChurchMilitantTV?  Time will only tell.


St. Athanasius, pray for us.
