Danger Zone: church spin (Covid & Politics edition)

In the last few days, the thugs and buffoons have been spinning away in the parking lot of the church, faster and looser, always more “courageous”, always a bit more wildly spinning the backs of their cars into the main road with a blind curve on the one side and a blind hill on the other, also barely missing the electric pole, risking the whole time T-boning a family just picked up from school. That’s the point. Endangering families. For the narcissistic, that’s what feeds narcissistic “fun.” The joy of the narcissist it to find one’s identity in the destruction of others. If people die for such stupidity, that’s all part of it, for the narcissists. But, no matter how good you are on spin, you’ll get caught in the end:

The video above is the live unedited news version of the takedown which includes the total smackdown arrest at the end. For old times sake, I also include the version below with “Good ol’ boys” playing in the background, just for fun. You gotta know that the officers – I’m quite sure – were also having a bit of fun with all this, but especially in the total smackdown arrest. ;-)

The problem is, the thugs and buffoons think the fun bit is all there ever is. Endangering others’ lives, and “not just” the lives of the police officers, means nothing to them. It’s just about congratulating themselves for how good the spin is. That the spin makes their entire lives a lie is what puts the edge on it all for them.

Some might say that the spin in the church parking lot has intensified in proportion to the intensification of the spin inside the church, in that opinion, from the pulpit, and, in that opinion, from the bully pulpit during my homilies and sermons.

There has been zero hesitation in smacking down the spin of our democrat governor in all his freakish discrimination against religious practice, adamantly promoting ABC liquor stores remaining open as essential while kicking churches in the face, again and again, entrenching with sarcasm. And that’s not spin from any pulpit. Just the facts. We rebel against this State hatred of the Church, this persecution of the Church by the State. We condemn the hateful spin of the State against religion.

  • “The earth could exist more easily without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.” – Saint Pio of Pietrelcina

And then there’s the stupidity on the insistence of practical atheism entitled the “separation of Church and State” so that the “free exercise of religion” guaranteed by the very First Amendment of the Constitution, with the end result that the Church can and must be persecuted by the State so as to free of the Church in order to be the State, smashing down, therefore, necessarily, all “free exercise of religion.”

The Covid-19 political manipulations have brought the democrat spin forward into further persecution. No longer is it just about changing the “free exercise of religion” to the “freedom of worship”, but now it is about changing “freedom of worship” into “NO freedom to worship.”

And this has been a reason for civil war in many countries around the world, viz., 1920s Mexico, during which time Cristeros rebelled against government oppression. Finally, now, 100 years later, they have at least partially won the day, just as the last Cristero died just some years ago.

But even worse, we are told by certain wimpy ecclesiastics (such as in the USCCB) that we cannot evaluate moral issues in such manner that one candidate is going to look worse than the other. What the anti-life, anti-Catholic Catholic Bishops are saying is that, for instance, we cannot say that the Biden-Harris ticket (Ooooh! I used names!) is the most pro-death, pro-abortion, anti-Catholic, pro-persecution of religion political platform in the history of the world, and that the Trump-Pence ticket (Ooooh! I used names!) is the most pro-life from conception to natural death, pro-Catholic specifically and pro-“free exercise of religion” generally political platform in the history of the world, that is, when the times are tough, when this is not a popular thing to do even among some idiot Catholics-in-name-only.

  • If you are pro-death, wanting with all your heart and soul and mind and strength to have 20,000 children in the womb and just born to be shredded to death each and every week, day-in and day-out, you hate both God (in whose image we are made) and neighbor. You hate women, who have as a most frequent day to commit suicide the day they have an abortion. You hate “black” and “brown” people in an especially racist, genocidal manner, with abortuaries being strategically placed in neighborhoods of predominantly “black” and “brown” people. But let me underline that you are adamant in hating God, no matter how much you congratulate yourself on being up-to-date, no matter how elitist and sophisticated and a pillar of society and a social justice warrior you hold yourself to be. You risk going straight to hell. In the end, in your spin, you will be smacked down. Go to Confession. Venerable Fulton Sheen used to say: Don’t be so tolerant and broadminded that you are flat-headed. Yes. Flat-headed for being smacked down in the end.
  • If you are pro-life, and will do your level best to ensure that the country goes in a pro-life direction, you obviously love God and neighbor even un-bennounced to yourself. You risk going straight to heaven. Do yourself a favor: also go to Church even against the persecution of the Church by the State; go to the sacraments also; always be ready to go to heaven. Will you go into the “danger zone” of State spin against the Church? Yes. But – hey! – that’s all part of it. Go right to the cross with Jesus, witness to the truth and to love and to respect for neighbor. Help your neighbor not to be smacked down in hell forever just because of stupid spin.

Since dad was a Top Gun instructor at Andrews just outside of DC before there was such a program, I thought I might include some Danger Zone Top Gun music. Go ahead. Go into the danger zone! ;-)

    wow…my first thought was maybe you could put speed bumps on the road, parking lot and was trying to think of something analogous to what is going on in the Church, with our shepherds. (If I were a man, I would want Waylon Jenning’s Good ol Boys played at my funeral 🙂 But then my eyes got tears when I watched the beauty of the Top Gun precision and thought of you good priests who have to do crazy maneuvers just to be a good priest. God bless you keep you.

    I have always wondered how abortion became so acceptable.
    Then I remembered….
    Many years ago I worked in a toy store. I thought it was odd that there were so few baby dolls for little girls. There were tons of other toys and dolls that were like models with crates of clothes and accessories to buy – but very few babies.
    One of the few popular baby dolls came supplied with diapers because the ‘baby’ pooped and had to be changed. Not a chore most little girls look forward to or consider fun.
    When I remarked about this, I was told that society was preparing girls to be ‘productive and enabled citizens.’ Being given ‘equal rights with men’.
    Now years later I suspect this was step one in diminishing and discouraging the maternal instinct in girls. If you can make being a mother seem like a bother or disagreeable chore – well then aborting a baby would be a lot easier.
    The toys for boys also encouraged a lot of negative behavior. It was subtle and only in hindsight is it obvious. Team sports used to be a must in most kids minds – but now, there is less and less participation.
    I think there is a connection here. Discouraging team spirit, natural instincts while encouraging self-centeredness, anti social behavior has results and we see it today in many places. The silent message seems to be “Hurray for me and pfft for everyone else”.
    There are lots of examples of things that have contributed to the state of the world – insidious things – but together they changed society.

      What a sharp insight, Joisy Goil! I am much edified by it. Thank you for sharing that with us. I will ponder upon it to see how best to impart that insight in future CCD classes. God bless you.
