“The Biden administration has quietly signed a five-year contract to start leasing an abandoned school in Greensboro, North Carolina, to house unaccompanied migrant children away from the southern border.” […] Potentially thousands of migrant children will be detained at the American Hebrew Academy campus in Greensboro until they can be housed with either family members already living here in the U.S. or other sponsors.” — FoxNews
This hits close to home, because this is in the territory of my diocese (a five hour trip one way from my parish, though). I bet there will be some priest who is brought out of retirement to be the Catholic Chaplain, as about 100% of those kids are Catholic, right? I gotta wonder how much Catholic Charities has been, is now, or will soon be involved with all of this:
Joe Biden casts doubt on whether he can ban all 9mm guns by way of executive order, but then gives the rationale for doing this legally. So, he just announced his intentions, trolling citizens in good standing who are wanting to be able to defend themselves and any victims over against unjust, deadly aggression that is astronomically increasing because of Joey’s love for crime and his hatred for law enforcement. He mentioned banning mags with ten rounds or more so that everyone who bought mags limited to ten rounds will also be felons: it’s not “over” ten rounds, it’s “ten roundsor more.”
Having announced his intentions, Joey, sippy cup or ice cream in hand, with his own government hired security detail, will surely move ahead with registering and then confiscating most tools for self defense in these USA guaranteed by the Constitution. Joey says that the God-given rights (and concomitant duties) enumerated in the Constitution aren’t absolute, you know, just like Pope Francis says that the God-given Commandments aren’t absolute. Yours truly says they’re both wrong.
I say this with all due respect. Pope Francis having it that blasphemy is good sometimes, or murder of the innocent is good sometimes, or dishonoring one’s parents is good sometimes is demonic. For Joe Biden to say that God-given rights (and concomitant duties) enumerated in the Constitution are not absolute is an insult to God and all human beings. Dem “Summers of love” with “mostly peaceful” assault, arson, rape and murder will ensue. But people vote for their own death because they get free stuff at the cost of their lives.
Meanwhile, to the North…
That means that only criminals will have weapons and that gun violence will sky-rocket just like in every other place where citizens in good standing are stripped of their self-defense tools but criminals are good to go. Trudeau is enacting a forced “buy back” of all guns having mags of five rounds or more. That, of course, rules out 99.999999999999999999% of all pistols and revolvers. Nothing is “grandfathered.” Poor Canada. The robberies and home invasions and murders will increase astronomically.
Criminals disobey gun laws. They’re criminals. You can’t legislate gun control onto criminals. Guess what: they’ll break those laws, especially because prosecutors and judges politically want criminals on the streets. Wherever citizens in good standing can exercise self defense preparedness, crime goes waaay down immediately. But that’s not what’s wanted.
Seems to me that these guys are all liars and murderers from the beginning. And, by the way, they are racist as well:
Do I really have to go into how many rounds have been shot at yours truly in my life? or how many times in the past few years that I have been carrying that I’m really happy simply to have had an effective self-defense tool with me?
The Dems in the USA and the liberals up in Canada have purposely socially engineered society to be hyperbolically more violent. The need for effective defense is intensified. And they proportionally take away any methodology of defense.
You always wanna give people the benefit of the doubt inasmuch as you can, so that just possibly there’s a 0.000000001% chance of whomsoever being open to conversion. We gotta have the hope that we can maybe work with people in this world.
Take Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill) as an example. When asked about pro-aborts protesting outside of SCOTUS Justices’ and elected officials’ family homes he had this to say:
“I think it’s reprehensible. Stay away from homes and families of elected officials and members of the court. You can express yourself, exercise your First Amendment rights, but to go after them at their homes, to do anything of a threatening nature, certainly anything violent, is absolutely reprehensible.”
Wow. So very different from Nancy Pelosi on this point. With the glee of the DOJ and DHS, Nancy seems to encourage, you know, that which is “mostly peaceful.” So, with Durbin it seems there might be a conscience hiding in there somewhere. Yet he also is an ultra-pro-abort and way back in 2004 was himself reprimanded about reception of Holy Communion. So, in defending Pelosi over against her San Francisco Archbishop Cordileone, he’s kinda using her as a proxy to defend himself. Which means it’s bothering him, still.
“The decision of the Catholic bishops and the treatment of pro-choice Catholics is different in dioceses by dioceses.”
Great point. But I’d like to think that he’s smart enough to know that bishops can be total idiots just like all the rest of us, and that we shouldn’t look so much to them for any consistent teaching but rather to Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition and the authentic interventions of the Magisterium throughout the ages. That teaching is crystal clear: abortion murders innocent human beings, the least of the brethren, about whom Jesus said, What you’ve done to the least of these, you’ve done to me.
“As a policy, they [the bishops] were poised to act for the entire nation, but then withdrew that decision.”
Yep. Good point. That’s also true. The bishops as a group are total cowards and greedy as hell, not wanting to offend the powers that be to the end that the bishops conference continues to receive truly ungodly amounts of government money to redistribute to, say, abortionists and marxists and LGBTQI+ “ministries” world-wide, you know, so that they can legally skim mountains of money off the top to finance their USCCB operations. All legal, however terribly immoral. Durbin’s point is that the bishops don’t give a damn about whether or not someone is damning themselves by going to Holy Communion unworthily, so it must not be something to worry about. For Dubin, that’s the teaching of the bishops, and… that is the teaching of the bishops (though not the teaching of Jesus, not the teaching of the Church).
“I still believe that the authorities in the church believe we have issues that can only be decided by our own conscience, and not by some bishop’s conscience.”
Well, that’s stating it wrongly. Surely he does get the impression that the bishops hold that there is no such thing as consistent doctrine and consistent morality. We already know that so many of our bishops are out and out anti-Catholic, you know, like Judas. Nothing new there. But Durbin is wrong to say that the argument is on the level of some bishop’s conscience and that all bishops are different and therefore it’s all up in the air. It never was on the level of any individual bishop. Catholic doctrine and Catholic morality is never up to the conscience of some individual bishop. No.
Bishops are to serve the absolute Living Truth, the unmanipulatable Son of the Living God, who is Love, and who said, “If you love me, keep the commandments.” Bishops can’t dispense from Truth or Morality. Bishops cannot dispense people from loving Jesus. The bishop of Rome cannot legitimately proclaim that the commandments are not absolute. The bishop of Rome isn’t God and cannot change the truth. But neither can God change the truth. God is Living Truth. We prove we’re not God by claiming we can change doctrine and morality.
I’m guessing Durbin is making a thing of all this, assisting the bishops by showing them how idiotic they are, because deep down, perhaps unbeknownst to himself, he wants the bishops, for once in his life, for once in their lives, to take the sheep of the Lord’s Little Flock as deadly seriously as Jesus took us deadly seriously. Durbin just wants to be taken deadly seriously. And that means just what it says, deadly seriously:
“And I think that is fundamentally unfair. I don’t think anyone should be judged in that matter [of supporting abortion].”
But the Lord will come to judge the living and dead and world by fire. He was Himself in the womb of His blessed Mother for nine months. He doesn’t take kindly regarding the murder of the least of the brethren whom He Himself has redeemed.
To the point: while it is true that Canon 915 of the Code of Canon Law has it that people “obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion,” I believe that it is also true, a fortiori, that those bishops who scandalize people into continuing their manifest grave sin, even if Cardinals, are themselves to be removed from active ministry and dismissed from the clerical state. I think of Archbishop Cordileone on the one hand and, quite opposite, Cardinal Wilton Daniel Gregory on the other hand.
Dear Dick Durbin, I realize that you may well think that you or Nancy et alii cannot go to Confession even if you were fully repentant and want to go to heaven and not to hell because, first of all, you are having a difficult time in finding a priest who upholds the constant teaching of Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition and the authentic interventions of the Magisterium throughout the centuries.
But I’ll hear your Confessions. You know the drill. You have to make a public repudiation of manifest public obstinate grave sin. I’m in good standing in my diocese which grants very full faculties for the absolution of sin. Also, I’m a Missionary of Mercy of Pope Francis. I can lift many undeclared excommunications and absolve many “reserved” grave sins. I’ll give you a do-able penance. Don’t risk going to hell. Go to heaven. May such blessings come upon you.
“We don’t understand! We don’t understand! That dumb ol’ Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone faked us out! We thought that his delays were just playing both sides! We thought he was really with us! We were going to recommend him to be appointed a Cardinal! A prince of the Church! And he just, like, threw it all away! He’s actually pro-life! He actually believes in Jesus in the Eucharist! It’s like he doesn’t care about political correctness with us! We’re us! We’re the important ones! What’s he doing, talking about Jesus, like that means anything?! What can we say?! What can we say?! … Tell them: ‘Media requests will be ignored!'”
Meanwhile, the Christifideles laici, Christ’s faithful, the laity, are like, wait… what? We follow Jesus.
We have to pray for our priests who minister in untoward ecclesiastical provinces, those who will be removed from the priesthood because of denying Holy Communion to the likes of maniac pro-abort politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, John Kerry…
We need priests who will be strong, not running from the wolves. It’s easy for me to say that I would deny these murderous people Holy Communion because, I mean, when are they going to show up in little Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Andrews, N.C.? Never. So, my little protestations on the sidelines don’t mean all that much.
But there are priests who are thinking of picking up cardboard boxes and packing-tape at Lowes because they figure that much sooner than later they will be removed from their assignments for standing with our Lord Jesus in His Trials.
We are to pray that their concern will be not to give scandal by giving Communion to public, notorious, manifest grave sinners. We are to pray that their concern will be to enjoy, at the Last Judgment, Christ Jesus telling them:
“You are the ones who have stood by Me in My trials. And I bestow on you a kingdom, just as My Father has bestowed one on Me, so that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” (Mt 22:28-30)
It’s not just that there’s zero church leadership in D.C. & Rome. It’s that such “leadership” leads the faithful astray. Too bad, that. We gotta pray for conversion there, and that, whatever the case of that happening, that Christ’s own faithful will not take any scandal given, but will stand with Christ in His trials.
So, a direct attack on the free exercise of religion by the atheistic communists of Amerika as always countenanced by the DOJ and DHS. Here’s the difference:
The anti-Americans shriek “separation of church and state, separation of church and politics” as if “Do not murder the innocent” is not a precept binding on everyone in natural law as reflected in the ten commandments and is therefore not simply politics.
True Americans look to their God-given rights of free exercise of religion, not only within the church as is the prerogative of Archbishop Cordileone, but also in the public square, so that the first amendment to the Constitution is not about citizens fearing smack downs from government, but rather the government, if necessary, being kept at bay from interfering with religious duty consonant with natural law, and this, to such an extent, that religion is free to speak about law even if some perceive that to be political.
With the White House basically encouraging terrorism, you know, saying things like we aren’t actually, like, actually encouraging terrorism but surely we, like, encourage mostly peaceful protests, like, for sure… don’t be expecting the DOJ or DHS to circle back and investigate domestic terrorism and hate crimes.
They notice it, but they turn a blind eye. I don’t know, but I recall, say, the FBI baiting idiots into some act of terrorism so as to see who’s connected with them, but with the intention of stopping them before they actually see any plot put into action, but then fail at stopping the terrorist act, say, a mass shooting. Then, the very second it hits the news it’s all politicized so that it’s all the fault of the 2nd amendment and we need to get rid of the filibuster. So, plenty of false-flag operations. In this case, no one is saying that we have to have Molotov-cocktail control legislation[!] but we just hear more circling back to a kind of encouragement of terrorism from the White House: we’re not exactly encouraging terrorism but, like, you know, we’re surely encouraging, like, mostly peaceful protests; we’re not exactly encouraging the assassination of Supreme Court Justices, but, like, we’re just encouraging mostly peaceful protests at the family homes of those Justices, happy with the doxing of addresses so as to terrorize the families, because it’s all about the children…
The meme these days regarding those (witch)crafting the perspective, as they say, is that they are not self-aware, as if they don’t realize that everything they say is a lie, the exact opposite of the truth, so that the irony couldn’t be more incisive. But I don’t think they are so stupid. And they don’t think that anyone thinks their lies are lies, but that they get support from people who recognize the lies as open mockery of the truth. They don’t embrace the lie. They aren’t woke into some fog of lies. No. They create the mockery of the truth with their lies. They work at it. Meanwhile, people die. It’s adrenaline having them live for power cut off from justice, cut off from service, the purposed murder of the innocent in the womb, almost all of whom are little black babies, because it’s all about the genocide of black people by way of attrition. The deep state is entirely racist, genocidal. They’ll stop at nothing. The destruction of America is no worry to them. Their only concern is the feelings of power they have to kill.
The leak of the mere draft of an opinion of Justice Samuel Alito is, of course, purposed to endanger the lives of the five Justices who sided with that draft at whatever time it was put forward as a draft. Whatever about the lives of the individual Justices, this leak is an attempt to assassinate the viability of the Court. It leads to violent protests which only took seconds to take place with professionally printed signs. All pre-organized. This is subversion, treason. Is it one of the other four Justices on the other side who did this, or ordered this to be done? The full force of the law should be put into effect. If any Justice is killed, hurt or suffers terroristic threats, whatever Justice who did this or ordered this MUST be (1) impeached and (2) imprisoned.
Instead, the Dems, all seemingly pre-organized, immediately scream for politically expanding the Court and/or executing the filibuster, calling the leak a “report”, all of them. Can Nancy and Joe still receive Holy Communion as they maniacally continue to push for the murder of tens and hundreds of millions of innocent and defenseless unborn human beings? Yes, screams the Cardinal Archbishop of Washington, D.C., Wilton Gregory: “Kill ’em all! Murder all the babies! Let’s all go straight to hell with the pro-abort politicians! Yay!”
But let’s bring up the race card, shall we?
It is black women who are with-child who are targeted by Planned Parenthood. It is a genocide of African-Americans by way of abortion that literally the party of the KKK, the Dems, have always pushed: “Kill ’em all!” scream the Dems!”
But wait… what? Black Dem politicians have pushed for genocide of black babies? Yes.
The liberal mass media and the Dems pushing for abortion, black and white, but mostly rich, elite white Dems, like 99%, what to wipe all black people from the face of the earth. And the few black news anchors or squadrons of black politicians hotly lusting for abortion… just… wow…
Do you know who wants to save the lives of black people, those defenseless black babies? It’s mostly poor white Catholics. Yep. Poor white Catholics are called “white supremacists.” No. That would be the KKK, and they are wanting all blacks, Jews and Catholics dead, do they not? Catholics are for life. But what about Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry et alii, you ask? They have removed themselves from all that good and holy, all that is Catholic. Catholics are pro-life, absolutely, from natural conception to natural death. We don’t want to abort the least of the brethren of Jesus, who was Himself so tiny in the womb of Mary for nine months:
But I’m sure I’m now at the top of the list to be raided by the new SWAT teams of the new Czar for Disinformation of the Dems. Whatever. I’m happy to die in witness of little Jesus.
An excellent breakdown of the draft. Thanks Ben Shapiro:
All cute, right? I think people don’t understand what he’s doing here. We might just chuckle, think it’s a bit of comedy, breaking the ice of the cold-war, clever statesmanship with basic humanity. But there’s more than this.
The top Russian leadership is actually Communist. These are not atheists we are dealing with here, but rather those who actively hate God, hate neighbor, hate themselves, and simply want to gain more narcissistic power that is cut off from justice, cut off from service, cut off from showing any mercy. It’s raw power, which is entirely constituted by hate, and is diabolical. That’s Fulton Sheen’s take: it’s hatred.
What Reagan was doing here is to be so entirely cute that there was no response that could be made, but he was humiliating them to the core of their rotten souls, their blackened hearts. Good. That’s the way to do it, to make them question whatever in hell it is that they are doing. That’s what Jesus did with the haters of His day.
Today, Biden wants the Green New Deal, the Great Reset: less people, more green, the “power” of murdering helpless people. The thing is, American youth have been trained in to think that this kind of cowardly entitlement to murder is virtuous.
Biden looks “tough”, like a war-time president, that will gain him votes, I guess. It always does. Putin is giving him this opportunity. For Biden’s minions to do better in the mid-terms is better for Putin than to for Russia to gain Ukraine once again. Then, after that happens, the next day after Super-Tuesday, Putin will just take Ukraine. That was my surmising the second this intention of Putin was announced quite a while back. Things change daily, but it pretty much answers the most questions, most consistently, the most simply, you know, why it’s so messy. It’s maybe the way this started, but who knows how it will finish. War is hell. Hell is hell.
Meanwhile, Confession. Meanwhile, the Rosary. And it’s good to laugh along with Regan. Just know there’s a deadly serious side to it.
As as this writing, well into the morning of 10 January, 2022, SCOTUS did not (yet) provide a Stay of Execution on OSHA’s mandate to receive an experimental, dangerous , abortion-tainted “vaccine.” A non-decision is a decision for as long as they go out of their way to neglect making a decision.
I will not comply with getting any abortion-tainted so-called “vaccine.” Ain’t gonna happen.
You might ask whether or not I’ve been granted a religious exemption, as if an unalienable God-given right to the free exercise of religion necessitates any permission to exercise that right. The answer is no, I have not yet been granted any religious exemption, at least not yet. Why not? You’ll have to ask the powers that be, right up to Pope Francis.
Yesterday, 17 December 2021, the 6th circuit court of appeals got the case by lottery, and overturned the previous stay of execution, so to speak, for the vax mandate for companies of 100+ employees, a minimum including all (arch)dioceses in the USA. The mandate and it’s draconian penalties are now fully back in force.
Just moments after that decision, yesterday, 17 December 2021, a coalition of dozens of companies made an emergency appeal to the Supreme Court of these United States. Finally. But given the recent track record of new “Justices” of SCOTUS, there is little hope, but we will pray. The problem is the the history of SCOTUS going way back is extremely pro-vaccine. Yep. If SCOTUS refuses to hear the appeal, the mandate and country-ending penalties remain in place.
“Penalties for noncompliance with the ETS [Emergency Temporary Standard] are consistent with existing OSHA violation penalties. OSHA may issue a penalty for violating or failing to follow the ETS up to $13,653 per violation. Penalty for failure to abate an OSHA citation may be up to $13,653 per day beyond the abatement date. For willful or repeated violations, the penalty may be up to $136,532 per violation.” (National Law Review)
As of this very moment, the first deadline of the mandate, 5 December 2021, is already past. The more draconian mandate deadline of 4 January 2022 (the 30th anniversary of my priestly ordination) is just a couple of weeks away.
I won’t comply with any abortion-tainted murderous fake-vaccine. Nor can I afford $13,653.00 dollars every single day, nor – when it is found out I’m obstinate – $136,532.00 per violation, that is, per day.
An extensive summary of OSHA requirements and penalties and deadlines: HERE.
There is zero chance that any (arch)diocese is going to pay $136,532.00 per violation, that is, per day, per priest who is not vaxed, and let’s just say that that’s for the reason that any (arch)diocese would be bankrupt before the projected end of the first tentative mandate period: 4 May, 2022. That date will, at any rate, likely be pushed forward beyond Super Tuesday, November, 2024. Right? That’s the best case scenario for motivations, bankruptcy.
If SCOTUS lets the mandate stand, I have to wonder what will happen to tens of millions of people, many of them sheep of the Lord’s Little Flock. Loss of jobs, loss of residence, total loss. Their being thrown into a dumpster will have a knock-on effect for hundreds of millions of people nationally and then, of course, on the rest of the world.
“But Father George! Father George! You’re so dramatic! The SCOTUS will take up the case and will rule the way YOU want them to rule, Father George! The world does revolve around you and your little desires! Don’t worry! Just get the vaccine! We did!”
So say the top shepherds of the Lord’s Little Flock, from the Pope on down, increasingly sarcastic, increasingly vicious.
For myself, I couldn’t care less about being thrown into a dumpster. I am concerned about the Lord’s Little Flock: what about the provision of the Sacraments for the lambs who want the Sacraments?
And the answer from the Pope on down… is…
I mentioned this post to Father Gordon this morning, and his response was:
“Let’s go, Brandon!”
If I were to get the testing every week ($139.00 per test) it would amount to $7,228.00 per year.
OSHA already realizes that there may be unavailability of tests and those surveilling tests but have not offered a work-around for that.
Many (arch)bishops around the world, already mandating the vaccine for their priests and workers and all volunteers in parishes, etc., mock those who ask for a religious exemption. Yep.
Lemme get this right: priests who offer Mary’s Son at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass are being required to be complicit in the murder of babies, the littlest of the brethren, by getting a vax that was researched on the organs ripped from those babies, was developed with the organs ripped from those babies, or was tested on organs ripped from those babies? Yep. That’s the case. I will not comply.
Please, share this post… Maybe another priest will see it and be encouraged…
όμικρον is transliterated omikron or at least omicron. I’ve been mocking Joey Biden on this blog for repeatedly saying “omnichron” (I have video proof) which takes two other words that together mean “all the time.” Why am I so mean? I’m not. I’m just pointing out that it is he who is mocking the world by calling this the “all-the-time” variant of Covid.
Look forward to getting smashed down all the more. Hello again to unsurveilled ballot collection boxes, ballot harvesting, unvetted voter lists, simply no voter IDs at all, no surveillance at voting stations, manipulated and destroyed voting machines, un-ending pre-voting with no accountability, lost truckloads of ballots, only just-found ballots at like 2:30 AM that all go to one party miraculously and only when all oversight has departed, blah blah blah. That’s what this is about. This is how America is becoming Amerika, as it were. “IT’S THE OMNICHRON VARIANT!!!!!”
By the way, the caption on that screen shot above… “Alarming”? Wait… What? Alarming to whom? I’m not alarmed. I’m fed up with all the social engineering, I mean political engineering, I mean genocide by liars, I mean the shepherds of the Church leading the State to persecute the Church all the more. Enough of this.
Maneuvering by the present secular Biden Administration continues by way of the U.S. Department of Justice regarding “vaccine” mandates even as many countries right around the world are locking down or even shooting anyone unvaccinated. Any win for the Administration from the Supreme Court will have immediate repercussions and strengthen attempts at further “vaccine” mandates already pushed by the Center for Disease Control.
In many places, religious exemptions are being rejected by secular authorities due to hierarchical religious authorities promoting or even requiring the “vaccine”, including Catholic bishops, archbishops and cardinals throughout the USA and right around the world, even to the point of rejecting seminarians or dismissing and even suspending priests if they do not go against their consciences so as to go along to get along.
My co-alumnus of the Pontifical Biblical Institute, Archbishop Mark Coleridge, rejected the conscience-rights of all his priests, that is, for everyone but himself:
“I will not consider conscientious objection to receiving the vaccination as a valid exception set out here. I fully respect the rights of conscience, especially when formed in the Catholic understanding. But I too have a conscience, and it is not just legal obligation but conscience which has led to my decision.”
In other words, he has, with full knowledge and consent, gone against the rights of conscience when formed in the Catholic understanding and demanded that his priests commit this grave sin as well.
Pope Francis obviously condones this behavior as he makes highly emotional attacks on those who reject the mandates, calling out those priests and bishops and cardinals who reject reception of a “vaccine” as being suicidal and murderously careless about the lives of others. Not only is he not reprimanding those (arch)bishops who do such violence against the consciences of their own seminarians and priests, but the Holy Father is likely to mandate the “vaccine” for all priests just as he’s already done for all in Vatican City and for all bishops and priests he meets in his travels.
Thus, secular authorities already have precedents in abundance to reject any attempt by a Catholic priest to avoid the “vaccine” based on a religious exemption. It is imperative that the (arch)bishop of any (arch)diocese which has pushed the “vaccine” put his signature to a religious exemption specifically for his priests, and then another for the laity. Otherwise he has stolen and trampled upon everyone’s conscience.
“But Father George! Father George! Why would you ever want a religious exemption?”
That’s what a priest asked me the other day. He admitted I was sincere when I said that the “vaccines” are from the living organs of babies purpose murdered for research, development and testing to get you that vaccine, and that Jesus said what you have done to the least of these you have done to me. It’s like taking a machete to Mary and Elizabeth to extract little Jesus and little John the Baptist for our own benefit. Time is not a moral criterion, making a directly wrought evil for some specious hope for good somehow irrelevant morally because it happened a while ago and we can attempt to “distance” ourselves from that. Really? How successful have we been in distancing ourselves from original sin? Not at all. Do we also say that our redemption wrought by the New Adam is irrelevant because of time going by?
Stupid bishops. This is not rocket science. What you promote is evil. And you know it. Why do you do it? Go to Confession. Do penance by writing exemptions for your priests and for Christ’s faithful.
Galatians 2:11, because Ezekiel 23:20 is about what you look like to God when you prostitute yourselves to the nations. It’s important for your eternal salvation. Hint: Ezekiel 23 is all about your political correctness. No, go ahead. Read it. Let’s go Brandon!
And if any bishop is offended by that innocent rap song… no, really, read Ezekiel 23:1-20. It’s all about you. It’s God inspired word telling you to F*** off. Yep.
“But Father George! Father George! You’re so disrespectful! Stop it!”
That’s not me. You should be careful of calling Sacred Scripture inspired by the Holy Spirit disrespectful. You know what’s worse than that citation? It’s called being mocked unto scorn unto being ignored. Try this from those you refuse to lead:
When Archbishop Mark Coleridge says “F*** Catholic Conscience” and so many bishops join him right around the world, their collective Blah-Blah-Blah is simply rejected. They are all irrelevant. Entirely. The most obscure cancelled priest who is faithful to Jesus is more important to the salvation of the world than all those bishops put together. Those who “F*** Catholic Conscience” militate against the salvation of souls. I would not want to be them at the judgment.
But, again, this is the kind of rebellion that they want. They want people to become cynical. But this is what they do not understand. Clarity in the appraisal of their failure is an act of charity to them and the entire Little Flock of Jesus. It is not cynicism if I don’t care if their feelings are hurt. It’s called charity. I want them in all charity to go to heaven. But they need clarity in that charity. Clear enough for them? We pray they see the clarity in all its charity and themselves stop entrenching in their rigid cynicism. Hail Mary…
Those who say that NOT to give pro-aborts like Joey Biden Holy Communion is to politicize and weaponize the Eucharist.
To give pro-aborts like Joey Biden Holy Communion IS to politicize and weaponize the Eucharist over against the least of the brethren in the womb.
That minister, that (arch)bishop, any Pope who politicizes and weaponizes the Eucharist as a ticket to murder the unborn will be severely judged by our Lord Jesus. All He will have to do is point to Himself in His mother’s womb, and to Saint John in the womb of Saint Elizabeth.
This is not rocket science.
But priests and bishops say that “the Magisterium” says it’s OK, and don’t think you can know better than the Magisterium.”
That is so very cynical. Deadly cynical. Just. Wow. How many millions more have to die with this fake-divine-mandate? No. Really. Tell me. Cowards.
If that claptrap blahbadiblahblahblah is the Magisterium, then I do know better than the Magisterium. But that’s not the Sacred Magisterium. To say that encouragement to murder is the Magisterium is evil. That has zero authority. Zippo. Zilch. Nada. Nothing.
The bishops say that they are going to give the foundational doctrine of the Eucharist and that will be able to be used for Eucharistic Coherence, meaning denying giving Holy Communion to Joe Biden. But they won’t say that people have to be denied, will they? We’ll see. So far, speaking about the truth of the Eucharist and the evil of abortion hasn’t stopped Joe Biden from approaching to receive Holy Communion, nor has it stopped anyone from giving Joe Biden Holy Communion. So, why not just make a statement affirming Canon 915?
And that stated rebellion earns me not just a weekly $14,000.00 fine, but about $140,000.00 in fines come January 4, 2022. I have sincerely held religious objections. I have a medical exemption. I have super strong natural immunity. No one cares about that. Not being able to pay the fines, looks like jail for me. Unless one uses one’s brain.
“Just lie about it, Father George!”
No. I’m not going to lie. I will stand with my flock, whoever that is, wherever that person is. I’ll take the consequences. Besides, I don’t want a $10,000.00 fine and six months in prison, which is the penalty for lying. And then you’ll get the other fines anyway.
“Just wear a mask and get tested, Father George! Don’t be so dramatic!”
I’m not ever going to wear a mask while I pronounce the words of consecration at Holy Mass. Guaranteed. This is a big deal, actually. Other examples of breath include Jesus breathing on the apostles so that they might receive the Holy Spirit to forgive sins. Or how about the early rites of exorcism in which breathing on a subject was part of the rite?
“But just wear the mask to get tested, Father George! Come on, man! You know, the Thing!”
I’ll be betrayed by some self-righteous Catholic coming to one of my Masses from around the USA. Most visitors are super Catholic, but some freak out about social distancing and masks and such. One threatened to write all sorts of letter to any powers that be to complain that I breathed on the Hosts at the altar because I was standing there with no mask.
Anyway, I wonder how testing once or twice weekly is going to work out with really a lot of people all of sudden needing tests and people spending all day at testing sites. Whose not going to get fired for that?
“But you just can’t quit the priesthood, Father George! Don’t be a quitter! Get with the program! You’re racist if you don’t!”
I’m not asking to be “laicized” or suspended from the sacraments. God forbid! No. If the Diocese is going to comply – illegally, actually – with Joe Biden’s anti-Constitution mandate, what I will ask for is that my salary be taken away, and that whatever is considered to be part of that salary is also removed, including the right to live in a rectory, any perks like a car allowance. In effect, it would be like getting “fired” from secular employment. Meanwhile, I would still volunteer to provide the sacraments and Mass in the parish. In this way, the Diocese wouldn’t be liable for me. Here’s the fact: Joe Biden isn’t going to be president forever, right? So, I’ll financially take a hit. Big deal. I’ll keep my conscience intact. Why be a priest if I can’t keep my conscience intact.
As I write this, the Biden mandate has been “stayed” by a judge… for Texas only. Good news. But Joey couldn’t care less about the Constitution or any sort of rule of law anyway. And, it seems to me, neither does SCOTUS. And, this is done under emergency powers. SCOTUS is going to be mighty hesitant to mess with that.
Divine Law is truthful and just and charitable, all at once, by definition. And it is divine law that people who do not discern the Body and Blood of the Lord are not to receive Holy Communion (see below). But people don’t get that. Sending people to hell with a complacent conscience is uncharitable. Let’s be specific: that objectively monstrous people like Joey Biden who effectively picks his teeth with the ribs of aborted babies while he comes up to receive Holy Communion is just plain wrong, and it’s gotta stop. I don’t care what the bishops have to say about it, it’s divine law:
1 Corinthians 11:27 — “So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. 29 For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves.”
And then there’s this:
“But Father George! Father George! You’re hurting Joey’s feelings on purpose! We know! You’re an old meanie! The most important thing, like, ever, is feelings, not eternal life or eternal death, heaven or hell, but feelings! And you are hurting feelings! Bad! Bad! BAD!”
Well, the Holy Spirit inspired those words of Saint Paul. If I needed a reprimand to get myself on to heaven I hope people would give it to me even if it hurt my feelings. But judging that I’m uncharitable for not judging the subjective state of someone, but rather their objective state from what they themselves obstinately and publicly and scandalously present most contentiously is a little bit weird. It’s a great charity to help someone turn to the Lord who needs to do that.
I’m not saying that Pope Francis said what Joey Biden said Pope Francis said about Joey being a good Catholic and that Joey should continue to go to Holy Communion. After all, Joey Biden spoke without a teleprompters. But Joey said what he said, and it’s out there, and it’s putting enormous pressure on the bishops in these USA to just throw 1 Corinthians 11:27-29 right out the wide open windows while the smoke of Satan enters in.
The effect is the same if Francis says nothing to correct what Joey said. But, truth be told, Pope Francis already declared himself on the matter in the recent plane trip when he condemned abortion then instantly allowed “pastoral” decisions of pastors to allow pro-abort politicians to receive Holy Communion, calling any denial of Holy Communion to such monsters mere ideological politics. In other words, abortion doesn’t matter. Joey Biden’s soul doesn’t matter. It’s all mere politics and ideology. Don’t expect Pope Francis to be making any correction. Joey Biden said exactly what Pope Francis wanted him to say regardless of whether or not Pope Francis said it.
I suggest that Pope Francis ought not say that 1 Corinthians 11:27-29 is – even though inspired by the Holy Spirit – the mere rubbish of rigid ideological politics as he effectively said in the plane interview. True, it will be said with their own false judgment that these verses are not written for our salvation and therefore in their own minds are not inspired. (They’re wrong on that: it’s all inspired, all for our salvation.) Or they’ll say that we’re all more clever today anyway, so it doesn’t matter. after all, we’re all infallible.
At any rate, I’m lucky to have such a small parish. Our parking lot couldn’t fit all the vehicles in Joey Biden’s entourage. Our little church could hardly fit in those of his entourage. But there’s plenty of room in the penitent side of the Confessional for him alone. And I’m still a Missionary of Mercy. About whatever undeclared excommunication he would have picked up I can absolve.
When Joey converts, we need him to go back to the Vatican and reprimand Pope Francis for not reprimanding him.
Not only is every day the eve of Saint Crispin’s Day – Yes sir-eee – but it is more so as the days wear on:
What’s Biden going to do next?
What’s Pope Francis going to do next?
What are the bishops going to do to hurt unvaxed priests next?
What are politicos going to do to hurt church attendance next?
A great family travelled some hundreds of miles for Mass at Holy Redeemer this past Sunday. We had a great conversation afterward. We spoke quite frankly about pro-life matters. I shared with him my own little prophesy. He then shared his. I’ll get to my own imagination in a later post, but here’s a quick paraphrase of what he said:
People in general and Catholics in particular are going to be really upset as it becomes ever more evident that the “vaccines” are not “vaccines” but are all part of the great reset and are hurting not only health but also consciences. And they will leave the Church.
What’s the response of the politicos and weak priests and bishops who have been leading people to hell? The words are voiced with effeminate brow-beating, bullying: “We were men of consensus then, and we are men of consensus now. We’re with Joey-Baby still today.”
Over against them I say with Henry V (full inscape of the words intended): “And now [those] [in]bed shall think themselves accursed they were not here and hold their manhoods cheap while then he speaks that fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s Day.”
Of course, the “fighting” of which I speak is that of praying the Holy Rosary, of preaching the truth, of providing the Sacraments. That’s all. And that’s what’s needed. And it hits them broadside, unexpected, stunning them, as faith is that which is least expected as it is entirely unknown to them. “What’s happening?” they ask, stunned. Then hopefully they convert, a win-win. But compromise with the very Person of Jesus, also in the least of the brethren, begs for entrenchment as rationalization. Prayers from the monsters to God, begging for humility, is necessary. Yikes!
And if all y’all think this is over the top political commentary, just read Ezekiel 23:1-19, which is an intense commentary on political correctness, speaking of it as prostituting oneself, and to what? The top picture of this post doesn’t even begin to equal the intensity of God saying “Let’s Go Brandon!” but with the actual words, and ever so very graphically. The Holy Spirit was having fun with that one. Wow. Hahaha.
And don’t think this is just being mean while using proof-texts from the Scriptures. If people need to be shaken up for the good of their conversion and eternal salvation, so be it. If they make it to heaven because you weren’t afraid to hurt their feelings they will thank you forever.
The Queen Mother, Mother of God, Mother of her Divine Son, Christ Jesus, conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, most powerful, calls herself The Immaculate Conception, transformed in grace from the first instant of her conception (see Gn 3:15; Lk 1:28), kept from from the macula of original sin. In other words, she is of as much worth (how can we even speak like that?) when just conceived as she is now as the glorious Mother of God.
Joe Biden insults her so that he can push the murder of those as tiny as she was and older, with abortifacients, abortion, the killing of children for pharmaceutical research.
Wilton Gregory instructs Joe Biden that the Catholic Church is pro-life, but then gives Joe Biden Holy Communion. That means that the “teaching” is that life doesn’t matter, Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament doesn’t matter. People don’t matter, including Joe Biden. What rank hypocrisy.
Pope Francis has it that abortion is really, really, really, really, really bad, but then immediately says that Joe Biden, pro-abort demon, is good to go to receive Christ Jesus our Lord in Holy Communion. That means that the “teaching” is that life doesn’t matter, Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament doesn’t matter. People don’t matter, including Joe Biden. What rank hypocrisy.
When someone insults the Immaculate Conception, saying that she is NOT the Immaculate Conception, Christ Jesus takes notice. He was conceived in her womb by the Holy Spirit, and was there for nine months.
Joe Biden should take notice of Jesus being indignant right now. You don’t want His wrath after you die. That goes for Wilton Gregory as well. That goes for Pope Francis as well.
