There was a strange hit on the blog to this post: “Mandatory Reporting” of Abuse Confessed in Sacramental Confession. [Read that again!] That seems to have sparked interest in this: Missionaries of Mercy reconfirmed: New list of faculties… [Read that again!] Involved is a group which archives and protects data for – How to say it? – the entire world, as in mirroring the likes the NSA, CIA, FBI, with the latter having a shared address. They figure into the posts above.
I reckon that there are two possible explanations besides just saying that there are a million coincidences and all the stars are happenstance aligning: (1) Someone’s wondering about the ethics of storing digitally recorded sacramental confessions such as those procured by the FBI multiple times not only in prisons but also in bugged confessionals in, for instance, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City [Yep.]; (2) More likely: someone’s wanting to access those digitally recorded sacramental confessions at least as indicators of who to look at so as to get enough info to get warrants for those they didn’t know were suspect, and at the same time looking at the constitutional issues of free exercise of religion, which such recordings and research would significantly damage.
Again, it’s not that it’s not done. It is. I was personally approached by the Italian Department of Defense to agree to this very thing so that they might accomplish a kind of sting operation in southern Italy against whoever it was they were after back in the day.
Oh. Just another coincidence. The FBI has just now started a RICO investigation in Pennsylvania where our data center is at. Too bad that investigation is just about the influence of homosexualist bullying of teens instead of also about RICO style kickbacks to chanceries from risk retention groups for false accusations. Billions of dollars in that investigation, but it’s not politically correct right now. We’re now at the stage of, analogously, the Mueller investigation insisting on non-existent Russian collusion but finding (and ignoring) all the Democrat and DoJ and FBI crimes. But we’ll get there with that too, right?
The particular data site (of so very many sites globally for the same group) is some hundreds of acres, hundreds of feet below ground, in the middle of absolutely nowhere, one of the most secure places in these USA and, therefore, on earth. They brag about perimeter security, armed guards, metal detection, mantraps, biometric access, CCTV, almost to the point of making a Titanic statement that even God can’t sink this ship. Um…
In a solitude of the sea
Deep from human vanity,
And the Pride of Life that planned her, stilly couches she.
Steel chambers, late the pyres
Of her salamandrine fires,
Cold currents thrid, and turn to rhythmic tidal lyres.
Over the mirrors meant
To glass the opulent
The sea-worm crawls — grotesque, slimed, dumb, indifferent.
Jewels in joy designed
To ravish the sensuous mind
Lie lightless, all their sparkles bleared and black and blind.
Dim moon-eyed fishes near
Gaze at the gilded gear
And query: “What does this vaingloriousness down here?” …
Well: while was fashioning
This creature of cleaving wing,
The Immanent Will that stirs and urges everything
Prepared a sinister mate
For her — so gaily great —
A Shape of Ice, for the time far and dissociate.
And as the smart ship grew
In stature, grace, and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the Iceberg too.
Alien they seemed to be;
No mortal eye could see
The intimate welding of their later history,
Or sign that they were bent
By paths coincident
On being anon twin halves of one august event,
Till the Spinner of the Years
Said “Now!” And each one hears,
And consummation comes, and jars two hemispheres.
Jesus will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire, particularly those who mock sacramental confession. I’ll assume that those who archive are wanting to delete out of the system all digitally recorded sacramental confessions. Right? Right?
