Those wielding misinformation materials and very possibly syringes ready to be drawn look so very professional, you know, just like the druggies in my neighborhood. Look at the scrupulous mask wearing, you know, because this is actually about Covid…. not.
For myself, I’m of the mind of Reagan on this:
Of course, the very next step is forced vaccinations. And I bet the guy they send out will be this guy:
Um…. Um…. I’m likely not going to comply! :-)
I mean, all I would have say with all courtesy and politeness and soft-spoken-ness is “Um… No…” and the dippy compliance officer would run away, execrating his fear, hopefully out on the street.
Here’s LifeSiteNews’ Resource Page on the Covid-19 Vaccines:
UPDATE: Well, well… Now we have the “Green-Shirts” for the door to door intimidation:
The one girl still doesn’t have an issued mask, even for the photo-op. How very haphazard is this entire administration. The guy on the left doesn’t even have a vest, just a green Izod shirt. His I.D. is surely not law-enforcement.
Not intimidating, at least not to me. I won’t be getting any vaccination.
So, no wonder Joe Biden is forbidding any emphasis on Mount Rushmore on 4 July 2021. I get it. No fireworks to celebrate the Constitution that celebrates God-given unalienable rights. Dems what all rights to be repealed, trampled upon, given to whom they like as an act of politically expedient condescension. No. I celebrate the free exercise of religion, the freedom to assemble, to speak freely even when that’s unpopular, the right to defend the innocent from the threat of deadly, already being delivered aggression, etc. Let’s see… that fireworks celebration… Ah, yes…
From FoxNews: “The head of the Vatican’s doctrine office is warning U.S. bishops to deliberate carefully and minimize divisions before proceeding with a possible plan to rebuke Roman Catholic politicians such as President Joe Biden for receiving Communion even though they support abortion rights.”
“Minimize divisions”? Let’s take a look at that…
Did the Dems vote God out of their party platform, dividing God from everything that happens in the world? Yes.
Do the Dems push maniacally to rip kids apart in the womb and after birth, dividing, shredding the image of God in the least of the brethren? Yes.
Do the Dems hate the elderly, attacking the Little Sisters of the Poor in their effort to assist the elderly, dividing the elderly from the care they need? Yes.
Do the Dems attack the image of God proclaimed in Genesis as male and female with family, thus dividing the image of God? Yes.
Diabolical? Yes. That’s from the Greek, meaning to throw apart, to divide. Division aimed at God and God’s image is diabolical. Do we “minimize divisions” when we not only ignore such diabolical interventions but bless them, consecrate them, proclaim them as holy, to be imitated, by giving Holy Communion to those who divisory in this way? Not at all. The divide is made all the greater between the saints and the malicious, between those who follow Jesus and those who attack Jesus both personally and in the least of the brethren.
In all of this it is very difficult to find anyone who speaks of Jesus. The “good” commentators will speak of “it”, you know, the thing.
They will be respectful, have right doctrine, but, really, it’s very difficult to find someone who will speak the Holy Name of Jesus, that in receiving Holy Communion, the Eucharist – you know, the thing – they are in fact face to Face Jesus, the Divine Son of the Living God, the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception (she who had Jesus within her womb for nine months and did not rip Jesus to shreds with abortion).
Why can’t we just say Jesus? Why can’t we say that ripping kids up in the womb, kids who are the image of Jesus, and then receiving Jesus Himself at Holy Mass into one’s bosom isn’t consonant, and isn’t to be done, so that such horrific monsters like Joey Biden are to be flat out denied the reception of Jesus for the good of their own souls?
It’s pastorally sensitive to deny Holy Communion, Jesus Himself, to the likes of Joey Biden. Those who maliciously administer Holy Communion, Jesus Himself, to the likes of Joey Biden risk going straight to hell, even if they are merely any bishop, merely any priest, merely any Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.
It’s pastorally sensitive to be divisive, dividing the likes of Joey Biden from reception of Jesus.
Jesus said He has brought a sword of division. We had better use that sword of division lest we be divided from eternal salvation.
My first duty as a priest is to be divisive since my first duty as a priest is to bring Jesus, the Great Divider, to His Little Flock, to feed the lambs, to tend the sheep, to feed the sheep, discerning with such divisory spirit just who is a lamb and who is sheep and not a wolf in sheep’s clothing. My first duty is not to feed the likes of this:
Letting the likes of Joey Biden receive Jesus in Holy Communion is to confirm him in being a wolf and risks sending him straight to hell. Those who maliciously allow that, are they not also risking going straight to hell? Are they not wolves in sheep’s clothing as well?
Where’s a real guard-donkey when you need one?
In following up on my priestly vocation from Jesus I agreed to be divisory with Jesus. I volunteered to be a guard-donkey of Jesus’ Little Flock.
Meanwhile, what the hell is that Jesuit guy at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith doing? He is being terribly divisory, causing division. He casting all apart: diabolical. How ironic.
Now, having said that, am I liable to being smacked down by the very Church I seek to defend, as many priests are being smacked down at this moment for that reason? No, and neither are they. But it is happening to many. Let’s take a look at the law of the Church, the Code of Canon Law to see if I’m amiss on that:
Canon 1369 A person who in a public show or speech, in published writing, or in other uses of the instruments of social communication utters blasphemy, gravely injures good morals, expresses insults, or excites hatred or contempt against religion or the Church is to be punished with a just penalty.
Correcting even an ecclesiastical personage even of great rank, even the Holy Father, is none of that. Instead, it’s speaking with the pontifically mandated parrhesia (speaking the truth boldly, with charity, for the salvation of souls). Sure, the truth hurts for those who don’t want the truth. Sure, there might be retaliation from those who have great authority in lording it over the sheep, but that doesn’t mean they are either correct or are doing that charitably.
Canon 1373 A person who publicly incites among subjects animosities or hatred against the Apostolic See or an ordinary because of some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry or provokes subjects to disobey them is to be punished by an interdict or other just penalties.
Yes, well, we have to ask if individuals in the Apostolic See or an Ordinary are acting ultra vires, that is, beyond their powers, and so are acting as individuals and not legitimately with some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry. Charitable correction sometimes has to be harsh, as we know with John the Baptist and Jesus. And because some are in need of harsh correction there may appear to be animosity or hatred from the corrector, even when there is none. It is a supreme act of selfless charity to correct someone who is breakneck running straight into hell. Provoking people to disobey administrative acts that provoke sin is not disobedience. It is supreme obedience to keep people from sin.
This modus operandi which I strive to follow in sacerdotal ministry is to fly in the face of sin, and to disregard any order to sin. The objective is the salvation of souls. I have been ordered in decades past in far away places to give Jesus in Holy Communion to manifest pro-abort politicians and to manifest grave sinners who were members of those respective parishes. It ain’t gonna happen. I suffered the consequences, which were draconian, that is, diabolical, that is, divisory. I’m just trying to do what is right in natural law, the 10 Commandments, in Canon Law, particularly before my Judge, Christ Jesus, who will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Amen.
It just struck me that there will surely be an objection that to be fair in all things “political”, I would also have to refuse Jesus in Holy Communion to, say, someone like Mother Teresa of Calcutta, you know, to make a point that the Church is not siding with any political party (as if any of that makes any sense). No, no. It would be worse: surely the reprimand would be something along the lines of administering Holy Communion to the likes of freakish pro-abortion Joey Biden but then refusing the likes of a Mother Teresa, you know, because Mother Teresa is like, you know, “rigid.”
Is is the great Father James Altman who got me thinking on all this divisoriness. Many incidents in my priestly life come to mind where the actual world divisory was used. I’ve had people say that I’m precisely 180 degrees turned away from being a “man of consensus.” I can only blame that on the Lord Jesus, thanks be God our Father.
We are not to unified among ourselves mired together in the lowest common denominator, then calling that such sharing in filth some kind of unity with God. No.
We are to be united to God and because of that, with Jesus, we are to wield the sword of division, the eternal Word of God, in such manner that we are all crucified to ourselves so as live through, with and in Christ Jesus.
That’s the end of division and the establishment of true unity in the Most Holy Trinity.
“obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.”
Cardinal Burke commented on ongoing past controversy about all this, recounting that:
“The discussion among the Bishops uncovered a fair amount of serious confusion regarding the discipline of can. 915. First of all, the denial of Holy Communion was repeatedly characterized as the imposition of a canonical penalty, when, in reality, it plainly articulates the responsibility of the minister of Holy Communion, ordinary or extraordinary, to deny Holy Communion to those who obstinately persevere in manifest grave sin.
Scenario: Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion is to flat out deny admission of Holy Communion right in front of God and the whole church even though he/she or his/her pastor has not had any ongoing dialogue with said Joey Biden.
The point is that Joey Biden’s sin is a sin, it is grave, is it manifest (public and unmistakable) and from which he has not publicly repented, and therefore he is to be flat out denied, turned away, even forthwith escorted from the church by security if he disrupts the religious service, a crime, I think, pretty much everywhere in these USA.
However, the Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has the pretense of rejecting the universal law of the Church, which follows upon Divine Revelation, as we read in Saint Paul that those receiving the Eucharist without discerning the Body and Blood of Christ are eating and drinking their own condemnation. I should think that the Cardinal Prefect has better think again before he seemingly calls the Holy Spirit a damned fool.
The Cardinal Prefect “requires that dialogue occurs in two stages: first among the bishops themselves, and then between bishops and Catholic pro-choice politicians within their jurisdictions.” Meanwhile, I’m thinking about the priest or deacon or other who must deny Joey Biden on the spot, and not wait during Communion time for such two-stage dialogues to occur. Sigh.
The Cardinal Prefect wants the bishops to be unanimous. When’s the last time any bishops in the history of the church were unanimous about anything? The answer is never.
The Cardinal Prefect wants this to apply not only to politicians, but to everyone. Great idea! But then he adds all moral issues into the mix using the heretical “seamless garment” idiocy that holds abortion and moving violations as equivalent. In other words, no one receives Holy Communion ever, and we cannot tolerate that, so everyone all the time no matter what can receive Holy Communion.,
Since the Cardinal Prefect insists on unanimity, and since Cardinal Wilton Gregory has mandated that the unrepented Biden is to be given Holy Communion at churches in the archdiocese of Washington D.C., the “dialogue” is over, and everyone everywhere no matter what is to be given Holy Communion, you, Pachamama Satanists…. everyone!
This is one priest who will simply follow Saint Paul and Canon 915. I would rather die than give unrepented Joey Biden Holy Communion. I won’t.
But don’t think I’m angry and cold hearted and unmerciful. I’m totally lighthearted in being able to deny Joey Biden Holy Communion. I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing as a priest. I’m helping Joey Biden to repent and get to heaven. I’m taking his soul seriously. So is that priest in South Carolina who denied Joey Biden Communion. There are many. And the number is growing.
The Cardinal Prefect and his sycophant bishops literally don’t give a damn about Joey Biden’s soul, do they? They speak only of division in politics. The priests who deny Joey Biden Holy Communion want Joey Biden in heaven, you know, all things being right with his conversion and such.
And, yes. Denial will have political implications if Joey Biden is turned away. Rightly so. And it will have implications for the better among Catholics as believers as well.
Jesus said that He did not come to bring peace, but the sword of the Word, the Father’s Living Truth, in which we rejoice. Amen.
And, mind you, this is within living memory of the Holocaust. I don’t even know where to begin with how maliciously ignorant this scripted text of West Wing is. Everything is taken out of context that full on hatred of all religion must be the pretext.
Today, fake Catholics like Wuhan Joe are bashing believing Catholics, taking texts in the New Testament out of context to provide self-serving pretext for an anti-Catholic Kristallnacht.
As Bill Donohue says, “The Equality Act has two major goals: it would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include sexual orientation and gender identity to the definition of sex; it would also undermine the Religious Freedom Restoration Act by allowing gay rights to trump religious rights.” Get that?
Bible burning to ensue, both Testaments. Burning of churches will happen at the same time, sometimes with congregants inside, being burned to death. This happens. A priest friend of mine recounted the day the flames were to come to his parish church. Miracles followed, but not for everyone in that hell.
Hellish attitudes are all around us, just waiting to be unleashed. No one cares, because they think it can’t happen.
Just the other day the druggies in my neighborhood were readying themselves to do up a home invasion on me, but my fearless neighbor, risking life and limb, chased them away. This happens quite a bit. Andrews, NC is the drug capital for WNC, for East TN, for North Georgia. The crime has transformed and increased to crazy levels. But we don’t have stats because, you know, why should they be sent in to state level anyway? We’re a nice town! But the State is on to us now, so I imagine something might be sent in, maybe for parking tickets or the like. So, speaking of the Second Amendment…
We hear much about HR127 which in effect is tantamount to removing the Second Amendment from the Constitution of these USA. I doubt that will proceed very far. But more recently, an interview with Wuhan Joe was published (now post-inauguration), which presents something even more far reaching in its simplicity. Wuhan Joe wants to confiscate all guns, though providing his personal permission[!] for having a sidearm if there are biometrics involved, so that, for instance, a self-defense tool will not operate unless any involved fingerprints are those of the registered owner of the self-defense tool. This, of course, requires a new purchase on the part of citizens in good standing. Surely there’s no kickbacks to be involved there… Um… Also, technology for framing individuals for crimes by way of fingerprint transfers has been around for decades.
Fingerprints… I’ve submitted to that process by way of black inkings and by way of all sort and manner of glass-plate scanners right through the years right around the world and right across these USA. The fingerprinting events of whatever method have always been frustrating, with whatever law enforcement techs becoming visibly annoyed and even somewhat aggressive with my lack of viable fingerprints. Hunted criminals try to “erase” their fingerprints. No fingerprints = suspicion. The meme question to me is then: “Who are you, anyway?” This blog has sported many accounts of this occurrence which, being so frequent, is humorous.
The last fingerprinting event came about as part of the process of getting permission for second amendment Constitutional rights here in what the Sheriff has declared to be a 2A sanctuary: Cherokee County of North Carolina. The nice officer worked it seemed for an exaggerated amount of time in an attempt to acquire something, anything of recordable data for any would-be fingerprint so as to send these off to the State Bureau of Investigation. “Maybe two or three partials, maybe,” she said after many repeated attempts, exasperated that she had reached the limit of attempts possible in the law. “I’ll send what I have to the SBI, but they will reject this immediately and we will have to go through this multiple times, setting up more appointments on this end and waiting possibly for weeks each time, and then sending it all to them and waiting. This may add months to your request for getting permission. But after many attempts they also will have to accept what is there and send whatever it is off to the FBI. And then we’ll wait again.”
“No worries,” thought I. “There are other ways of ascertaining who I am, and there will be no problem at all,” thought I, smiling with sardonic contentedness. Indeed, the SBI instantaneously approved me first try – instantaneously – but not because of any viable fingerprints. The nice fingerprinting officer was shocked about this, once again giving me the “Who are you anyway?” look, and offering comments of amazement. It is to laugh.
UPSHOT: I could never fire a gun that wouldn’t fire without immediately viable fingerprints, which wouldn’t work anyway except in perfect laboratory conditions regarding temperature (cold and hot not working), no gloves (which are common when working, and/or when in cold areas, like from Texas to Canada), no sweat (that you otherwise would have even in cold weather when there is an adrenaline pumping situation), no mud, no dirt, no new scrapes since the last fingerprint scan, no blood, and no switching of hands when your own fingers of your strong hand have been shot off (a not super-infrequent occurrence as you draw up with your self-defense tool right in front of you), a bad grip for reason of broken fingers and you shove a trigger finger into the trigger guard all the way to the palm of your hand to get some viable muscle to pull the trigger (no fingerprints there), and so on.
But I don’t have fingerprints to begin with. So, how is this Constitutional? I’m a citizen in good standing, and I’m being infringed. And, yes, I have a many reasons for carrying my now permitted concealed carry tool, also openly carried here in North Carolina and in this 2A sanctuary of Cherokee County.
The joke in these days about any gun confiscation is to say: “Oh! I’m so sorry dearest confiscation officers! I would hand over all my guns but I lost them in a boating accident!” But let’s update that for my situation:
“I lost my fingerprints in a boating accident.”
Go ahead and laugh at my stupidity, as I got what I deserved: While I’ve always had trouble fingerprinting, this intensified when building the hermitage now many years ago. I needed to fill in gaps under the rafters and I used expanding foam. I didn’t read the directions and so didn’t wear gloves. This was like a gorilla glue in the hair experience. My hands had glops of foam all over them. I’ll just wash that off before it dries, thought I. Nope. Rubbing alcohol? Nope. Gasoline? Nope. I finally read the warnings on the spray-can. Uh-oh. I then tried an abrasive pot scrubber. Nope. My heart fell. I entrenched. Steel wool? Yep. After many sessions, many hours each, my hands were entirely raw. It worked, but…
“You see these marks?” asked the nice law enforcement fingerprinting officer, showing me printouts of my non-fingerprints. “The story is embarrassing,” said I, but then I recounted the story above. There was deserved rolling of eyes. I laugh at myself as well.
But should I lose my second amendment under Wuhan Joe just because I didn’t read directions on a spray foam can while going a zillion miles an hour in just getting things done in my construction tasks, even triple tasking? Even someone who makes a mistake with a spray foam can still has second amendment rights, right? Believe me, that mistake will never be made again. We can learn from mistakes. And this wasn’t criminal and there was no criminal intent.
Having said all this, I still have two requests for Diplomatic Security.
“Just testing!” is what a 28-year military intel friend is surely going to exclaim to me when I roll my eyes at him next time I see him, likely tomorrow. He gave me the flag pictured above the other day – all packaged up – and then ran. Can you see any problems here?
The subtle reading: “A well regulated [read: infringed upon] 2nd Amendment…” … “shall not be infringed.”
“Father George, you’re exaggerating. It’s just artistic license to lay things out that way. It doesn’t mean that the Kamala Biden proclaimed infringements on the second amendment are not themselves to be infringed. That would be too clever. Come on, man…”
There are 14 stars on this flag. There was never even once a flag with fourteen stars. Federally accepted flags jumped in numbers of stars relatively infrequently. The first jump was from 13 to 15 stars.
“Father George, you can’t possibly be thinking that China is subtly pushing for the District of Columbia to become a full state so as to sway what happens with infringement of the 2nd Amendment are you? Come on, man… Just because Chinese Communist Party is continuously complaining that there is a grave problem in these USA until there is full-on gun confiscation doesn’t mean a thing. Do we have to do bring you out back of the gym or do a pushup contest, you dog-faced pony soldier?”
I agree. Surely this is just a mistake of someone who doesn’t know how to run a word processor banner widget thingy. I get it. But I also could never hang this insult to America anywhere. This “flag” will be burned forthwith.
The move to give vaccines to GTMO terrorists would get attention. This would be a forced vaccine, btw. Attention was to be had, for sure, but not what was expected…
So, predictably, Biden backed off for a moment, meaning it’s still going ahead, the forced vaccine part, and because it’s in the future, just not today, it’s all good, you know, the forced part…
As this is carried out in future, all Federal, State and local prisoners, whether citizens or not, will receive the vaccine, except that it will be forced.
This will set a precedent for forcing the vaccine on everyone. Mark my words.
And remember, the vaccine is not a vaccine, not an inoculation. It is technically a “medical device” and falls under “medical device” law. It is gene therapy. When your genetics are changed that change can be easily manipulated by the very people who changed your DNA structure. You are more manipulatable in your health. But we are supposed to trust the Chinese Communist Party at Wuhan Joe’s word, right?
I’m in a Second Amendment Sanctuary here in Cherokee County of WNC. That’s voluntary on the part of the Sheriff and actually covers basically nothing. But that’s not to say that pressure won’t be put on governors of States by the Biden admin to enforce new and draconian dictates, with the pressure in the form of promised Federal funding for infrastructure or whatever not being distributed to those States if there is no compliance. In this State of N.C. there would be enthusiastic and gleeful compliance by the Governor with anything desired by the Biden administration.
So far the rumor mill has it that Wuhan Joe has been pushing that anyone in possession of factory issue (15 round) mags supplied with, say, a Glock 19, are to be treated like full-on terrorists in possession of weapons of mass destruction even though they are citizens in good standing and carry (licensed) only for defense against the threat of non-provoked mortal aggression continuing to be delivered in whatever unfortunate incident. Those who carry in N.C. have been put through the wringer with perhaps the most stringent background checks in these USA, the process taking something like 4-5 months. I guess it doesn’t matter if I’m an ICPC law enforcement chaplain, and that I’ve openly packed heat uncountable times while out and about with law enforcement, even on a planned SWAT style raid (at the invite of the Police Chief), and that I uphold this Constitutional Republic with the Rule of Law and the respect to be given to God-given rights.
Wuhan Joe wants mags to be able to hold no more than 10 rounds each… Before there’s a run on 10 round mags, I ordered a few so as to be good to go.
Since I carry one mag locked in the Glock, with one round chambered, with two mags in a mag holster… if those mags have only ten rounds each that means I’ll have 31 rounds total. It used to be 46.
“Both 46 and even 31 rounds is crazy-headed, Father George! If you are any kind of a good shot you shouldn’t need more than the ol’ service revolver six-shooter. Even then, anything more than a couple shots from a Derringer is… well… just… you must be a ridiculously bad shot and it’s all just crazy-headed!”
I’ve heard that from a lot of gun fanatics, even NRA instructors. Yep. But I’m not sure if any of them actually put in the time to see what things are like on the pavement, out with local law enforcement.
If I had only 31 rounds I would be dead right now, you know, if I were the cop in the video below. He faced just one guy who initiated and continued shooting at the this police officer, who is himself a firearms instructor for law enforcement and the head of his local SWAT… He needed more than 31 rounds. He had a Glock 21, three mags of 13 +1 chambered = 40 rounds total. He had only four rounds left, meaning he shot 36. The very last three (bullets 34, 35 and 36) were necessary for him to survive. If he had only 31 rounds he would be a dead man. With the experience described in the video below, he now carries 145 rounds… He’s still alive. Good for him.
But, I kind of agree with my gun fanatic friends who insist that I should be such a good shot that it’ll always be the case that it is only one shot that will ever be needed to stop a mortal threat from continuing to be delivered…
But given changing circumstances and conditions such as those outlined in the video above, that’s simply not reality. And there are always changing conditions. Perps initiating and delivering mortal aggression don’t stand still like a paper target the size of a small car three yards out in sterile conditions of an indoor range.
Also, these days, there is an absence of ammo, so that the edge of perishable skill sets can be somewhat dulled. I’m no James Butler “Wild Bill” Hickok, a “natural” gunslinger. I need practice to keep up with the fundamentals, with the necessary speed, with the necessary accuracy. In this time of zero ammo, there is an outside however slight chance that I may need more than just one shot to stop a threat, especially if threats these days are wearing level 4 body armor.
But you can’t always choose not to be in some untoward situations unfolding in nanoseconds before you. Some situations are very bad and very evil. Like in the video above. Too bad I’ll only have 31 rounds.
Upon the executive order of China-Joe POTUS – “that vixen” (Luke 13:32) – all Federal documents are being scrubbed of any reference to “China Virus” or “Wuhan Virus”, and no Federal employee will be allowed to speak such words since they are racist words, he says, spoken only by xenophobes who are intolerant.
I recall Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s words on being tolerant. Those promoting absolute tolerance only of their own views, such as demanding the promotion and protection of the most blood thirsty of the Chinese Communist Party, congratulate themselves as being broadminded. But the Venerable Sheen quipped that those who are so broadminded are themselves flat-headed. He’s on his way to being canonized. Those who agree with him are on their way to being martyred.
Just to be nice, let’s call it the Chinese Communist Party Virus, or CCP Virus for short. That exonerates 99.999999999% of the great Chinese people suffering the murderous oppression of the CCP and places the responsibility on just a few people of a political party promoted and protected by Vixen-Joe.
Does the Biden family have any connection to the CCP? Just wondering. Just a question.
Anyway, I doubt that my limited reference to the CCP Virus will stop me from getting arrested by the Feds should I travel through the Federal Forests everywhere in my church-parish territories here in WNC and then make brave, while doing so, to mention the CCP Virus, like, out loud and everything, as the Wuhan Virus, or the China Virus. Indeed, I might just be accused of the same even if I didn’t do that. Same difference, right? Accusation is guilt. One is guilty until one proves oneself to be innocent (which can’t be done with such people, you know, the likes of a Pontius Pilate and his Kangaroo court).
The coddling cuddling of American politicians turned Chinese spies and operatives speaks to the brutal suppression of the American Constitution and the Rule of Law.
If any Federal agent, operative, worker can be fined and jailed for hate crimes such as saying “Wuhan Virus” or “China Virus”, then, by analogy, by precedent, so can any citizen otherwise in good standing in these USA be fined and imprisoned as well.
Why should a priest be worried about such merely political things? Because they are not merely political.
When free speech is attacked, all rights are attacked, including the free exercise of religion. It all happens very quickly.
The tree above was to be seen just behind the backyard of the rectory. This too tall tree was threatening many homes and many lives. It had to go. It was barely alive anyway. In some of the more marxist regions of these USA to cut down such a tree would be an offence that could send you to prison. People don’t matter.
It seems to me that the Green New Deal crowd have been staring at the trees of this world with the dumbed-down-vision epistemologically appropriate to the those who have eaten from the Tree-of-Knowing-Good-Dumbed-Down-by-Evil (to provide a better translation of that phrase in Genesis).
The Green New Deal purveyors cannot possibly hold human lives to be in need of protection over against an aging tree ready to crash down and crush their homes. Dems’ GND: It’s the human lives who are the enemies of the State, the enemies of the Green New Deal, you know, just because those human lives are now living. Yep.
Actually, what the Green New Deal comes down to is forcing abortion of human lives. If you’ve been following the interventions of Dem administrations at the United Nations over these last few decades you’ll know what I mean. I have many stories to tell, one in particular though, about Mr Environmentalist himself, Albert Arnold Gore Jr., outside FAO in Rome. Even tough ol’ Al acted out his over-compensation in front of my “spies”, among whom papabile are numbered. :-)
No matter what the “policy” [one letter diverse from “police”] the Dems inserted “language” about reducing populations whom the dark powers want eliminated, you know, all those Catholics, all those black and brown lives. Yep. “Is this a statement on agriculture and food supply? Make sure there is no population that needs food and it will all be good.” Always something like that, from a thousand different directions. These Dems feed on the demonic power of murdering the helpless in the womb. They are puppets for the demonic lion raging about looking for whom he can devour.
Check out the elimination of the Mexico City Policy by anti-Catholic pro-Green-New-Deal Joey Biden just now: “Let’s force abortion on all black and brown lives!”
Why is Joey Biden not excommunicated? “No, no! Not that! Give Joe Biden Holy Communion!” the anti-Catholic Archbishop of Washington D.C. screams at his priests.
Meanwhile… meanwhile… This priest is enthusiastically looking forward to the persecution to come. I only pray I am worthy to suffer for the honor of Jesus’ Holy Name:
The Apostles were “rejoicing that they had been found worthy to suffer dishonor for the sake of the Name”(Acts 5:41).
Remember, excommunication is the discipline used with truly fatherly church governance to medicinally bring back to the fold those who have by their own choice taken themselves out of communion with the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
When Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio was first presented to the world as Pope Francis, when pretty much all the more “traditional” Catholics condemned him so severely that one was condemned for asking for prayers for him, I nevertheless insisted that to be a good son of the Church I must pray for him, also at Holy Mass. But what I call the ultra-tradition-al-ism-ist began a cancel campaign for anyone promoting, say, this prayer:
V. Oremus pro Pontifice nostro N. R. Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius. [Ps 40:3]
Pater Noster… Ave Maria…
Deus, omnium fidelium pastor et rector, famulum tuum N., quem pastorem Ecclesiae tuae praeesse voluisti, propitius respice: da ei, quaesumus, verbo et exemplo, quibus praeest, proficere: ut ad vitam, una cum grege sibi credito, perveniat sempiternam. Per Christum, Dominum nostrum. Amen.
The ultramontane heresy of the ultra-tradition-al-ism-ists is that the Pope must be immaculately conceived and is not ever to have personally sinned, so that he has no need of our prayers and no need of Christ Jesus to be his Savior. Because that is not the case (ever), the ultra-tradition-al-ism-ists went all apoplectic in their heresy of ultamontinism and continued in condemning him to the point of condemning those who prayed for him. Too sad. We will all stand before Him whom we have all pierced, all of us, men of every tribe and race and people and nation. What’s there not to understand with this. We pray for the Pope as we pray for each other.
“Father George, you don’t understand. If you pray for Pope Francis that means that you agree with everything he says no matter what and you’re going to go to hell just like him because we said so and everything!
Sigh. Remember Peter, who denied our Lord three times and only later became Saint Peter? I’m guessing that he was martyred because Divine Jesus’ good mom, the Immaculate Virgin, prayed for him, already then assumed to heaven soul and body, Queen of heaven and earth, angels and men. We follow her lead. Get it?
But what about praying the likes of the present POTUS Joe Biden, the most anti-Catholic pro-abort ever? Saint Peter himself has something to say about that (1 Peter 2:11-17):
“Beloved, I urge you as aliens and sojourners to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against the soul. Maintain good conduct among the Gentiles, so that if they speak of you as evildoers, they may observe your good works and glorify God on the day of visitation. Be subject to every human institution for the Lord’s sake, whether it be to the king as supreme or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the approval of those who do good. For it is the will of God that by doing good you may silence the ignorance of foolish people. Be free, yet without using freedom as a pretext for evil, but as slaves of God. Give honor to all, love the community, fear God, honor the king.”
A generation later, in the Letter to Diognetus, from waaaaaaaay back in the day, like the end of the first or beginning of the second century, addressed to the early Christians, all Catholic, of course, we read this:
“For the Christians are distinguished from other men neither by country, nor language, nor the customs which they observe. For they neither inhabit cities of their own, nor employ a peculiar form of speech, nor lead a life which is marked out by any singularity. The course of conduct which they follow has not been devised by any speculation or deliberation of inquisitive men; nor do they, like some, proclaim themselves the advocates of any merely human doctrines. But, inhabiting Greek as well as barbarian cities, according as the lot of each of them has determined, and following the customs of the natives in respect to clothing, food, and the rest of their ordinary conduct, they display to us their wonderful and confessedly striking method of life. They dwell in their own countries, but simply as sojourners. As citizens, they share in all things with others, and yet endure all things as if foreigners. Every foreign land is to them as their native country, and every land of their birth as a land of strangers. They marry, as do all [others]; they beget children; but they do not destroy their offspring. They have a common table, but not a common bed. They are in the flesh, but they do not live after the flesh. 2 Corinthians 10:3 They pass their days on earth, but they are citizens of heaven. Philippians 3:20 They obey the prescribed laws, and at the same time surpass the laws by their lives. They love all men, and are persecuted by all. They are unknown and condemned; they are put to death, and restored to life. 2 Corinthians 6:9 They are poor, yet make many rich; 2 Corinthians 6:10 they are in lack of all things, and yet abound in all; they are dishonored, and yet in their very dishonor are glorified. They are evil spoken of, and yet are justified; they are reviled, and bless; 2 Corinthians 4:12 they are insulted, and repay the insult with honor; they do good, yet are punished as evil-doers. When punished, they rejoice as if quickened into life; they are assailed by the Jews as foreigners, and are persecuted by the Greeks; yet those who hate them are unable to assign any reason for their hatred. /// To sum up all in one word — what the soul is in the body, Christians are in the world. The soul is dispersed through all the members of the body, and Christians are scattered through all the cities of the world. The soul dwells in the body, yet is not of the body; and Christians dwell in the world, yet are not of the world. The invisible soul is guarded by the visible body, and Christians are known indeed to be in the world, but their godliness remains invisible. The flesh hates the soul, and wars against it, 1 Peter 2:11 though itself suffering no injury, because it is prevented from enjoying pleasures; the world also hates the Christians, though in nowise injured, because they abjure pleasures. The soul loves the flesh that hates it, and [loves also] the members; Christians likewise love those that hate them. The soul is imprisoned in the body, yet keeps together that very body; and Christians are confined in the world as in a prison, and yet they keep together the world. The immortal soul dwells in a mortal tabernacle; and Christians dwell as sojourners in corruptible [bodies], looking for an incorruptible dwelling in the heavens. The soul, when but ill-provided with food and drink, becomes better; in like manner, the Christians, though subjected day by day to punishment, increase the more in number. God has assigned them this illustrious position, which it were unlawful for them to forsake.”
No, really, you gotta watch the whole thing. Follow into the crescendo. Just a few minutes. It’s like you can see the fiery Holy Spirit. YES!!!
This priest IS the prophet Nathan thundering against King David (Biden):
“YOU ARE THE MAN!”
Who is this guy and where? I so want to reach out to him to thank him, bless him, encourage him.
Update: whenever I myself want a bit of encouragement, I’ll listen to this.
PS: As Father said, we want Joe to convert.
PS: I’m listening to this again… ;-)
PS: Full confession: I’m listening to this yet again! I love it! Thank you, Father.
The following was King David’s response. We pray that Joe Biden will follow.
[Psalm 51:1 For the leader. A psalm of David, 2 when Nathan the prophet came to him after his affair with Bathsheba.]
Have mercy on me, God, in your goodness; in your abundant compassion blot out my offense. Wash away all my guilt; from my sin cleanse me. For I know my offense; my sin is always before me. Against you alone have I sinned; I have done such evil in your sight That you are just in your sentence, blameless when you condemn. True, I was born guilty, a sinner, even as my mother conceived me. Still, you insist on sincerity of heart; in my inmost being teach me wisdom. Cleanse me with hyssop, that I may be pure; wash me, make me whiter than snow. Let me hear sounds of joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Turn away your face from my sins; blot out all my guilt. A clean heart create for me, God; renew in me a steadfast spirit. Do not drive me from your presence, nor take from me your holy spirit. Restore my joy in your salvation; sustain in me a willing spirit. I will teach the wicked your ways, that sinners may return to you….
Oh! He meant the Republican Party! Sorry! Oh! I forgot! The Republican Party is made up of American Citizens, about 100% of whom are citizens are peaceful and are in good standing, but who are now considered Domestic Terrorists along the lines of ISIS. And you know what happens to terrorists, don’t you?
Oops! No surprise: Joe Biden has already reversed the Mexico City Policy. Our Lady of Guadalupe is not pleased. Nor are the angels. Innumerable children will be put to death because of what Joe Biden has already done with his presidency.
Oh, but wait, there’s more that I forgot, stupid Catholic priest that I am: the Holy See gave Joe Biden 100% praise, forbidding any critique of his pro-abortion, pro-“gay-marriage”, anti-free exercise of religion, anti-Catholicism until the Holy See got into the messaging game first with their 100% praise.
That’s a photoshop from quite a while back. But it seems to me that the purpose of the Holy See being joined at the hip with Joe Biden, stomping around in jackboots, kicking faithful Catholics in the face, is to make you depressed, go into despair, specifically so that you lose your soul. This is Satan’s trick. Always. I’ve seen this 100% of the time I’ve been called upon to do an exorcism in any of these past decades, in people of every age, race, background, culture, country. Satan wants you to lose hope, because then Satan wins.
So, instead… be hopeful, doing your best to carry the treasure of God’s good grace and love and truth in broken vessels in this world as Saint Paul has it. The fiery Holy Spirit to make us members of the Body of Christ, with Jesus. Jesus is stronger than death. He means to bring us to heaven. But we have to agree to let him do this. We have to have the integrity and honesty in His grace to keep the commandments in all truth. We’re weak, but all things are possible with Jesus. Set your sights on heaven, be hidden with Christ in God.
“Communism will never be conquered, it must be converted.”
There are useless arguments as to whether or not we have prayed enough so that the bishops in unison with Saint John Paul II consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Useless! Why?
Right now, we are to pray the Rosary and make Eucharistic Reparation so that our Bishops today, including and in unison with Pope Francis, can for the first time or second time, specifically consecrate Russian to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. That would be good, would it not?
“That’s not possible Father George! That’s a tall order you got there. Do you really think the Archbishop of Washington is going to do this while he is given our Eucharistic Jesus to the most anti-Catholic president in the history of these USA?”
Ah yes… despair and cynicism… Jesus said: “Nothing is impossible with God.”
Yep. All the self-congratulatory, clever, sophisticated, blue-haired, always rich, always elitist, upturned noses, social justice warriors who want to defend that they themselves have had a half dozen abortions, who have used abortifacients the rest of the time, who have promoted contraception with their friends, all of them are ones who voted for fake Catholic Joey, who have created hells of division in their parish churches, who have made their churches into Dem hell-holes.
The problem is, I couldn’t speak to my congregation in this way as I can’t think of even one person at church who would ever vote for Joey the fake-Catholic. Of course, I can complain about those who have done this, fake Catholics as they are, in places not far from where I am writing this. Well, they can congratulate themselves for now. Sure. But Christ our God will come again to judge the living and the dead and world by fire. They had better repent while they have the chance. It won’t be long until there will be no more Mass, no more Confessions. They have brought this upon themselves, upon all of us.
Oh, and just to say it:
I don’t care if it’s the Pope himself, if Joey the fake Catholic ever presented himself for Holy Communion in my Church, not only would he be refused (a spiritual favor to him), but, if he made a scene, you know, his usual “c’mon man, let’s fight out back or let’s do pushups, you dog faced pony soldier,” well then, I would have him escorted from Church and charged with the crime of interrupting a religious service. And if the Secret Service intervened so as to set up a cage-fight or push-up match, I would simply stop the distribution of Holy Communion and finish Holy Mass, ignoring the antics of the most pro-abortion, most pro-gay-marriage, most anti-free-exercise-of-religion, anti-Catholic president in USA history. This would never happen in my church:
The usual anti-Catholic ecclesiastics will surely be contacting the Chancery of the diocese, again, to complain that I’m being political. Whatever.
Here’s the deal. If I complain that someone is sending themselves to hell by presenting themselves for Holy Communion even while openly persecuting the Church it’s not because I’m an ol’ meanie, cruel. No. It’s because I want the likes of Joe Biden to repent and go to heaven, with the primary emphasis on repenting. That’s necessary. Those who don’t instruct Joey Biden or who stop that from happening, cancelling priests faithful to Christ our God and His Church, it is also they who are risking going straight to hell. I don’t want that either. I want as many in heaven as who will repent and thus be open to going to heaven.
