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
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.
