Election sermon 2020: Tell me, IRS, can I keep this up? Thank you Fr James Altman

  • I didn’t mention any names.
  • I didn’t endorse anyone.
  • I didn’t tell anyone who to vote for.
  • I didn’t mention any political parties.

So, let’s see… I did mention…

  • The difference between pro-life and pro-death
  • The difference between promoting the free exercise of religion and the persecution of religion
  • The difference between socialism-communism-marxism-satanism and trying to follow the natural law and the ten commandments
  • The difference between promoting LGBTQ+, witnessing homosexualist “marriages” and recognizing that male and female in a family context is the image of God
  • The difference between KKK with slavery and respect for neighbor

Hey! Besides possibly getting an education from the IRS, maybe I’ll also get another lecture on how never to speak about moral issues in an election from certain ecclesiastical personages (who have no standing whatsoever).

What I want to do with this sermon is also to thank Father James Altman, who was smashed down for saying such things as I say here, although he has much greater rhetorical skill and fervor and solidness of spiritual life.

Father James Altman is an inspiration and hero whom I strive to follow.

Trump’s superb reaction to RBG’s death

I love that. Sadness over the death of someone regardless of being on different sides of whatever spectrum anyone might want to mention. Good on you, President Trump.

When someone informed me of RBG’s death this last Friday at 7:49 PM my first reaction was to say a Hail Mary for the repose of her soul. Ave Maria

Precious few had the same reaction, including those on the far left of the political spectrum who were angry at RBG for having died before January 2021.

We gotta get hold of the fact of eternity before us…

Priest responds to Catholic League’s Bill Donohue blasting Federal Electoral Commission Chairman Trey Trainor

Bulleted points (or in Italics on different platforms) in quotations marks are from Catholic League’s Bill Donohue (CL for short):

  • “Trey Trainor, the chairman of the Federal Election Commission, is accusing the bishops of refusing to partake in electoral politics because they are more interested in receiving federal funds than they are in mobilizing Catholics. He even goes so far as to say that priests should disobey their bishop.”
  • “Trainor says, “the bishops are using their non-profit status as a shield to hide behind from having to make a decision about who to support.” Why? Because they want federal dollars. “To look at the amount of money the Church receives for social services, I would say that they have a big fear of provoking the government into pulling money away from activities the Church is involved in.”

Up to this point, I agree with Trey Trainor. Great! But then CL has this:

  • “In actual fact, the bishops have always been reluctant—properly so—to tell Catholics who to vote for in an election. We don’t go to church to get lectured to by priests who are Republicans or Democrats.”

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Con paz! Con paz! Just. Wow. Trey Trainor did not command the bishops who to vote for in an election. Trey Trainor did not command us to go to church in order to get lectured to by priests who are Republicans or Democrats. Trey Trainor did not command priests to lecture their congregations from the pulpit, endorsing this or that candidate. No.

  • “To be sure, priests are entitled to discuss public policy issues that the Church supports, such as laws that restrict abortion or statutes that support school choice. But priests who go beyond this are crossing the line. None of this has anything to do with money—it has to do with prudence and respect for the conscience of parishioners.”

Just. Wow. As a priest, I’m allowed by CL to discuss public policy issues. Pfft! “Discuss.” No. I’m not going to discuss anything from the pulpit. I’m not going to throw up in the air for “discussion”, say, ripping unborn children apart in the wombs of their mothers and sucking them out with a vacuum cleaner, discussing this… No. These children are made in the image and likeness of God, and I’m going to declare with Jesus, who was in the womb of His Immaculate Mother for nine months that procured abortion is intrinsically evil always and in every circumstance. This is not up for “discussion.”

Does CL really equate procured abortion with school choice, the old lies of “Common Ground” and “Seamless Garment”. Unbelievable.

CL says that priests who go beyond this step over the line. Well, CL, I’m stepping over the line. Sue me. I’m going to say that procured is intrinsically evil and that this is not up for discussion at all.

CL says that this has nothing to do with money – it has to do with prudence and respect for the conscience of parishioners. I say, that’s bull crap. The bishops get tons of Federal Money for Catholic Relief Services, which is anti-Catholic, anti-Relief, and against true Services. The Bishops get tons of Federal Money for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development which is not Catholic, but is a campaign against that which is Catholic, and is entirely against Human Development. Let’s talk the Bishops’ support for groups supporting abortion. Yes. Let’s do that, CL. Let’s talk the prudence and respect of Jesus for the consciences of the money changers in the Temple, overturning their tables of money. Just. Wow. “Prudence.” “Respect.” I’ll tell you this, Jesus took us deadly seriously. He was tortured to death for it. Jesus doesn’t want us to go to hell. He instructs us without fear. What the hell are you doing, CL? Being men of consensus?

  • “Worse is Trainor’s comments on priests and bishops. ‘When a priest takes the vow of obedience to the bishop, it’s in the area of faith and morals, but they have a higher duty to Our Lord. If the bishop is putting out something that is not right, then the priest has an obligation to the faithful to correct it because he has the higher duty to Our Lord.'”

And what Trey Trainor said is absolutely correct. I’ve taken that promise of obedience, knowing that such a promise is made within the structure of Canon Law. No bishop can legitimately command any priest to commit sin, say, by way of a sin of omission or in any other way. No priest has ever made a “vow” or promise to any bishop to commit whatever sin any bishop might command him to do. This is absurd of CL. Totally absurd. I’ll tell you this, dear CL, I would go to my death disobeying any bishop commanding me to sin. If a bishop were to command a priest to sin, it would be the very height of arrogance. But then, CL says this:

  • “Arrogance is commonplace among Washington officials, but this one is a gem. Since when is it the job of the chairman of the FEC to offer theological instructions to Roman Catholic priests? What mantle of authority does this bureaucrat have to tell priests that they should disobey their bishops?”

Yes, well, Trey Trainor happens to be a Catholic who has the right in Canon Law to bring his concerns to the pastors of the Church. And if Trey is also a government official, does that mean that he has no right to the free exercise of religion in the public square, no right to freedom of speech, no right to express his conscience on the matter? Trey is not doing this from the offices of the FEC, but rather in a journalist’s studio. I thank Trey Trainor for the instructions he has provided. And, CL, just for your instruction, I do have a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum), a Licentiate in Sacred Scripture from the Pontifical Biblical Institute, a Doctorate in Theology from the Angelicum again. I applaud the instruction of Trey Trainor. His “mantle of authority” is that… wait for it… he’s right.

  • “One would think that with all the hullaballoo about fraudulent ballots being cast, and all the chicanery about mail-in voting, that the head of the FEC would have better things to do than to tell the Catholic clergy what their responsibilities are. Trump needs to rein this guy in right away.”

I’ll tell you what, it’s fully my intention to cross the line set out by CL. I won’t discuss. I will instruct. I will defend the truth. I will defend children in the womb. I won’t command people how to vote, but I will say how candidates measure up to the absolute truth of Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception, who will come to judge the living and the dead and world by fire. Amen.

And, by the way, I also have better things to do than have to write such commentaries as this. I had the best day ever yesterday – to give an example – locked up in jail, giving another bible study. It was on the prodigal son. Tears of conversion flowed. I saw Jesus at work in these guys’ souls. I would much rather be doing all that than this commentary. And now it’s off to Holy Hours, Masses, Communion calls until nightfall. I love being a priest. Just don’t have the hubris of telling me how to be a priest, CL, well, you know, unless you’re right on something, like Trey Trainor.

P.S. I love what you do otherwise, CL. You do a great work for the Church. But with this attack on Trey Trainor, you’ve stepped over the line.

Bishops Ripped by Federal Election Commission Chairman: follow the money

“Don’t Let Them Ruin America”

I’ve been putting up some opinions. This 44 second conglomeration video of Dem lies about the destruction of American cities is one of those opinions. If I put it up it’s that I’m endorsing anyone – regardless of the last couple of seconds of that person’s video – rather I’m just challenging the Dems to come up with a video which expresses their opinion about the wanton destruction of America’s cities, their opinion about the rape, assault, murder, arson, looting, terrorism really. Oh, I forgot, the video above is all their voices, their opinions.

Sometimes when people are quoted from an audio recording, a video recording, they become furious at attacks on them, but, really, it’s just them saying their own thing. But they will about kill you for saying what they are saying: “Damn you, you damn priest! Stop quoting us saying what we’re saying!”

Um… uh… I think I’ll just hold on to all my first amendment God-given unalienable rights over against the violent Dems.

I would put this to the Dems – consider it a courtesy warning – If they keep up the encouragement of the violence and murder and mayhem, they may well be held responsible for crimes against humanity just as the radio station in Rwanda was held guilty for inciting the genocide. It was that radio station that “gave the go ahead.” And that’s what the Dems are doing. They should all go to prison. Oh, I forgot, they won’t mind. They will have already met the vast majority who go to prison, that is, upon the draconian laws enacted against black men by both Biden and Harris. They’ll love it there.

No Catholic can vote for Joe Biden: Pro-life priests explain

Now, there’s an opinion. Am I still within the guidelines of the USCCB? If anyone thinks I’m being one-sided, not following the rules, and would like to see the other side of this, namely, that “Only real Catholics vote for Joe Biden”, then – Hey! – make another video of the same length and I’ll put it up here. No, really! But, here’s the deal, it has to be a Catholic priest or, say, deacon, whether diocesan or, say, a Jesuit. No, really! Be creative! Tell us how the most pro-abortion maniac, the most anti-free-exercise-of-religion candidate, Joe Biden, anti-Catholic on… really… everything… tell us how he is better than the most pro-life candidate this country has ever seen, Donald Trump, who is also the most pro-free-exercise-of-religion we have ever seen. So, this is a debate. I think that’s allowed by the first amendment without prejudice. Right? Right?

Police need to get a grip: more $$$ = better training

If you know what you’re looking at you know what you’re looking at. I feel sorry for this officer, who has obviously never unholstered her gun… ever, never shot a gun, never practiced. I bet the qualifications were cancelled. This is totally insane. I don’t blame her. I blame the idiot Dem mayors who cancel the funding to cancel the training to cancel safety to cancel control. Just. Wow. But maybe I’m just jumping the gun, as it were. Maybe there are special circumstances, like her having a permanently dislocated thumb, or maybe a prosthetic thumb, right? I mean…

Just to be clear, I don’t blame the police, I blame the idiot mayors who don’t want any police at all, well, except for themselves, because, as the mayor of Chicago said: “She’s special.” I’m sure she is.

Joe Biden suffers elder abuse

joe biden dementia face

As a priest, even in Covid-19 times, I deal really a lot with the elderly, and there are certain signs of dementia that are simply unmistakable, especially when there are so very many of those indicators.

I see Joe Biden’s face and I immediately surmise that he’s suffering dementia, and I’m angry with his handlers who couldn’t care less about his welfare, but rather make of him a useful puppet. That’s elder abuse.

Go ahead and add the thousand some other indicators of dementia for old Joe, but, for me, it’s the face. In his acceptance speech his brow was so frozen, so like Styrofoam. That’s always the way when it gets advanced.

USCCB pro-death hypocrites

  • Apparently, some USCCB staffer made a remark that seemed to be pro-Trump, and so she was forthwith fired from her job.
  • Apparently, some USCCB staffer made a remark that was pro-Kamala Harris and nothing happened whatsoever.

The USCCB is just a bunch of pro-abortion fanatics, bullying others with their blatant partisan pro-death politics into making sure that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are elected.

That’s all to be expected. Jesus picked Judas also because He wanted to make sure that we knew that He understood. He suffered this kind of betrayal of Life.

Still, what surprises me is that there are apparently good Catholics who insist that the hypocritical policies of the USCCB are to be followed. Count me out. This priest is not going to be politically correct with those who promote the killing of the image of God in the womb. Ain’t gonna happen.

Some wimps say: “I was forced into compromise, betrayal, sin.” That is simply never true. What do any of us have to lose for continuing to do all that is righteous and just and merciful? Our lives? Pfft! We will gain our lives in heaven because of our witness to Jesus who is Life.

  • “Father Byers, you don’t understand! You’re supposed to hold your own life in this world as precious, to be protected at any cost! Don’t witness to Jesus! Bow down to the pro-aborts! We do!”

Yuck. I would rather be tortured to death.

  • “Father Byers, you don’t understand! We have power! We can have you shut down, silenced. We’ll call you an apostate, a schismatic, an excommunicate – splutter splutter – unless you promote our pro-abort candidates, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. We’ll make sure you are removed from you parish, thrown on the street, a wanderer, accursed. We’ll make sure to make your life HELL!”

Pfft! Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn said that he was not afraid of any torture to which he was subjected. Rather, he was afraid that, while looking into the eyes of his torturer he saw no conscience. But I say that we are not to fear even such as that – and I have seen that in the eyes of pro-abort politician-torturers of the unborn that zero-conscience thing. Instead, we are to look into the eyes of Christ Jesus and see that He has seen the zero-conscience thing in all, from Adam until the last man is conceived, and we are to see that Jesus was not afraid even of that. Better, when Jesus’ eyes close in death (like the Master, so the disciple), let’s look into the eyes of Jesus’ Immaculate Mother so as to see that she also was not afraid:

Biden to be excommunicated (if Father Byers become Pope)

Joe Biden has spent a lifetime trying his level best to push for ever more millions of innocent little children in the womb to suffer being torn limb from limb, sucked into vacuums with shredding blades, having them melted with acid and all the gruesomeness of procured abortion. He should have been excommunicated long ago.

Yet there are untold numbers of pro-abortion bishops who do their level best to encourage him by insisting that he be able to receive Holy Communion, where instead, as Saint Paul says, he will risk meeting his condemnation in Christ Jesus, who was Himself in the womb of His Immaculate Mother for nine months.

So, let me rephrase that, if Father Byers becomes Pope, not only will Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry and so many other fanatical pro-abortionists be straightaway excommunicated for their moral heresy*, but so will all their pro-abortion bishops encouragers, the latter also receiving many other ecclesiastical medicinal penalties also aimed at their repentance.

* Canonists used to argue that such maniac pro-abortion politicians could not be excommunicated inasmuch as the law states something about aiding more directly in the procurement of the abortion, such as in the operation of a suction-razor machine inside an abortuary. At the same time, they ignored what could easily have them all excommunicated forthwith, and that is their heresy regarding moral doctrine (with that moral doctrine actually being consonant with the natural law). And so we have the situation we have today, thanks to the facilitators. Oh, so, on that point, let’s also excommunicate all the chancery rats who went out of their way to give bad advice through the years.

P.S. Can anyone add some names to the list? I may not let those through comment moderation!

Holy Communion for Trump or Biden?

consecration-

TRUMP:

  • Despite POTUS Trump being the most pro-life, pro-free exercise of religion president in the history of these United States, it is in order to respect the integrity of POTUS Trump relative to both his present-time faith and reason, that I would not at this time administer Holy Communion to him should he – receiving bad advice – present himself for reception, desiring to help him fruitfully receive and enthusiastically rejoice in being heart to Heart with the Divine Son of God. I pray for the day that I would be able to administer Holy Communion to POTUS Trump.

BIDEN:

  • In order to respect the choice of Biden to be entirely anti-Catholic on basically every single doctrinal and moral aspect of the Catholic faith, in order to respect the choice of Biden to offend Natural Law regarding basically every aspect of how we are created by our good Creator, I would not at this time administer Holy Communion to him should he present himself for reception, with myself instead desiring to help him fruitfully receive and enthusiastically rejoice in being heart to Heart with the Divine Son of God.

Probably a certain Jesuit troll will complain in order to have this blog post taken down, what with the Jesuits being freakishly anti-Catholic and pro-Biden, and, I must say, clever in gathering henchmen around them to do their dirty work. I would to see this certain Jesuit call out Father James Martin. THAT ain’t gonna happen, is it?

If anyone has an opinion as to whether the two points made above regarding the present day non-administration of Holy Communion to POTUS Trump or Biden, drop that in the comments.

I’m a Catholic priest, but does that mean that on my private-opinion blog which I write on my own private internet connection, on my own private computer, on my own private time, in a totally off-church-campus dwelling, with unrelenting disclaimers that this is just little me representing just little me. But, if anyone thinks this should all have me thrown into prison, let me know what the law is. Thanks in advance!

Having to buy my free speech rights?!

MAFIA OMERTA

Is the God-given unalienable right to Free Speech guaranteed by the Constitution’s First Amendment cancelled out by the God-given unalienable right to the Free Exercise of Religion? Does a religious minister have to buy his right to Free Speech?

Here’s the heart of  the problem, at least for Catholic priests. Catholics have an obligation under pain of mortal sin to assist with Holy Mass on Sunday’s (or any Vigil Mass). The Federal Government by way of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assists churches by not taxing incoming donations (Income Tax). It would be entirely offensive to the flock for a church or even a church minister to endorse a political candidate, well, in certain circumstances. Let’s make a distinction, which is not theological but rather deals only with taxes.

The question is this: Does a church minister, in this case a priest, ever have the right to endorse a political candidate?

To put this another way concerning the IRS and Income Tax. This priest, yours truly, pays Income Tax.

  • I can receive income from the church as reimbursement for “business expenses” such as mileage (which I don’t do, to a loss of some $7,000 or $8,000.00 a year, to my loss). The parish simply cannot afford to assist me with what we call “Mercy Mileage,” miles which rack up when I take people frequently to hospital and doctor visits even hundreds of miles away (we are in a medical desert), or go on Communion Calls and Last Rites calls all over this four county area of Graham, Cherokee, Clay and Macon counties. Those purposes are called “business” as far as the IRS is concerned.
  • But that distinction, made by the Federal Government, the IRS, mind you, means that in the very mind of the legislator, there is inescapable the real and expected possibility that a minister, indeed a priest, will have non-business mileage which he has no right to claim for business mileage as reimbursement-income. And while it is intended that this be a zero-sum game, so that it is only the money spent on business mileage that will be reimbursed (something like 0.55 ¢ per mile), it is still a recognition that a minister or priest has down time, non-business time, personal time, in which case he might take a vacation/pilgrimage to the Lourdes or the Holy Land, maybe read a book or… or… wait for it… write a blog post.

Speaking of writing my own personal opinion in my IRS granted down-time, let’s make some other things clear:

  • This means that a minister or priest cannot express any endorsement of a political candidate from the pulpit, or during any official church function, whether on or off campus, whether during sick calls, Last Rites calls, Communion calls, during religious processions through the streets, during any celebration of the Sacraments or sacramentals, not even in private casual conversation if such minister or priest is actually using his status as a minister or priest to enforce such a political endorsement. This goes for church bulletins, newspapers secular or religious, radio or television broadcasting, or even social media. I do none of that.
  • I make it crystal clear that when I communicate anything I do that simply in my own name. Period. End of story. But if you want more detail, see the long list of disclaimers about who I don’t speak for:

https://wordpress.com/page/ariseletusbegoing.com/504

  • I’m sure the IRS would be interested in some logistics. I’m good with that!
    • The blog I write on is my own personal blog, not that of the church.
    • I myself pay the fees for the blog and the domain.
    • My blog has NOTHING to do with the parish. It has nothing to do with the Diocese. It has nothing to do, believe me, with the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops. It has nothing to do with the Holy See. Nothing to do with Pope Francis.
    • I designed the blog myself. No one edits it for me. No one is required to read this. Almost zero people in the parish do read it. Those who do so only read it once in a while, well, except for one or two people. But even they say that they pretty much just look at the “Flowers” posts, wishing these were on Instagram. Never!

Finally, let’s just ask the question:

In view of the IRS, can a minister or priest, totally on his own time and with his own resources, utterly not as part of his ministering or his being a priest in a parish or diocese, as expressed at great length above, go ahead and endorse a political candidate, it being a given that, in not using any 501c3 privileges whatsoever, but indeed paying his own income tax?

Diversely, can a minister or priest BUY BACK his God-given unalienable right to free speech as already guaranteed by the first amendment?

Diversely, can I, with all the distinctions made above, in my being a citizen in good standing in this great country, wave my American Flag and say that for I which I was so brutally censored?

AS FOR ME: TRUMP 2020

I’ve yet to read up on what Trump said in his executive order, or what the Bishops Conference said, or what Saint Pope John Paul II said, etc. I’m going a million miles an hour, busy with being a priest, and I love being a priest. I also love being a human being and a citizen, as least on my own time. By the way, if anyone wonders, my up-hours as opposed to my down hours, are often 12 or 16 or 18, sometimes 20 hours a day. I wonder if there really is much down time after that. Or maybe we are not allowed down time. I really NEVER take vacations, ever. There are scheduled days off that I miss out on.

Let me be frank about this… Here’s the deal: I was told that I am always and only 24/7/365 in my official public capacity, that I never am a private person. I wonder if pooping and peeing is private, or if my verbal diarrhea always has to be at the level of Papal Exhortation or Papal Encyclical or Apostolic Exhortation? I wonder if this is why we have IDIOT papal sycophants who think that every word that comes out of the Pope’s mouth or his pen is entirely infallible instead of only when he speaks on faith and morals to the universal church as the successor of Peter especially when deciding a controversy. These sycophants are the reason why we have, on the other hand, sede-vacantists. These are those who are responsible for such division in the church. They overstep their capacities taking on an authority they do not have. Shame on them. Shame on them. They are tender snowflake violent bullies who smack others down to demonstrate to themselves the power they don’t actually have. Whew! Amen, and, if you only knew:

Laughing out loud!

U.S. Census Bureau gerrymandered me

gerrymandering

Pre-Covid-1984 here in Cherokee County of far Western North Carolina, the Atlanta U.S. Census Bureau paid me a visit at my little church in Andrews, requesting that I become a “partner” in the effort to make “The Count” a success, what with most Latinos being Catholic and with me having a Spanish Mass. They really want the Latinos counted. In fact, I was the very first contact for partnering that was made in the region.

Me being a troublemaker, I put some tough questions before the regional coordinator about mathematics and statistics and illegal immigration and the sharing of information with such as ICE, as well as about the use of information for gerrymandering so as to sway an upcoming election. The regional coordinator touted doctoral degrees with Jesuits no less, and had done work for DARPA, surely DARPA COMPASS, which, by one in 330,000,000 chances, is coincidental to my involvement in DARPA COMPASS. The responses were rather non-committal.

As the months went by I saw some stories about the Census being used, in fact, for gerrymandering so as to sway elections. It’s about as old as what is called the first profession. But this was a big deal as recently as the last presidential election in 2016.

Writing to this regional coordinator I asked about this potential difficulty, and was assured that talking points were provided to them about this. And that was it. No answers were given to me.

Instead, I was receiving multiple emails inviting me to be special at a special meeting for all the partnering going on. At the same time, I was getting messages on my phone saying that the Census Bureau lost my email address and could I call them up and let them know what it is again. Um. No.

Trump did up an executive order forbidding the Census Bureau to use information for gerrymandering. Smart. The very same day this regional coordinator resigned. Did I mention that it was the very same day. ;-)

Meanwhile, not long after, just the other week, a rash of calls came in on the phone message recorder in the church office, demanding ever so very breathlessly and urgently that I immediately call back. I hate anything breathless, and so let it go. Another call, then another. Two guys and three numbers, all going to Houston, even though we’re in the Atlanta district.

Having some time driving to meet a priest friend to go up to the exorcism the other day I thought I would enjoy some entertainment by calling one of those numbers. After about ten minutes of preliminary talk about issues raised above we got down to brass tacks.

He said that he had some questions about my electronic submission of my census form. Hey! That’s interesting! I didn’t submit any electronic form. Mine was paper. I filled it out and sent it by way of the U.S. Postal Service. Only some people received the paper. Interesting that as well.

He was convinced that there was a raft of women and kids here who were not reported. Oh, you mean, I asked, like all those Sanctuary Movement Latinos escaping from pre-Sandinista Nicaragua back in the 1990s (before he was born, surely). They need to be declared he insisted. I told him if anyone is saying something like that by way of an electronic submission for the census, well, that would be fraud and will sue them into the ground.

More than this, the previous gerrymandering agent (just a conjecture, by the way), admitted that all Census response forms are manipulated by the Census Bureau so that no one can ever relate any particular form to the person who is responding, you know, to protect their privacy, you know, in case of hacking (which has happened, or was that the excuse?).

Having gone through the Ancestry DNA thing, I wrote down my two major DNA “ethnicities”. But that’s what the Census Bureau can change, enabling them to gerrymander districts so as to bring more services to certain underserved ethnicities, such as Latinos. But that can sway votes, sway elections, right?

And… and… there’s a financial motivation to say anything whatsoever on manipulated form. Census Bureau field operatives get a minimum of $10 bucks a pop for every house visited. But they can write whatever the hell they want. Money is to be had! Gerrymandering is the added benefit which, as per the history of it, happens all the time.

I think the whole lot of them should be slammed into prison. But they would be out in minutes.

I’m sure they would want to a SWAT on yours truly in retaliation, you know, to check on all those undocumented Latinos living in the house. He insisted multiple times that this was a legit question because, you know, it’s a “rectory.” There’s some prejudicial misbehavior for a Federal agent. I invite them to SWAT me out. Maybe they’ll slip on some dog-poop. That’s about all that’s here. Shadow-dog and Laudie-dog are quite healthy. Maybe they count as human! Maybe they’re Latinos! That’s about they level they are at, seems to me.

salamander

P.S. These guys should go visit the neighborhood drug house. It’s just a small house, but there can be dozens of “homeless” teens and twenty and thirty somethings in there, for years at a crack. Yes. Get those names. Most would have multiple felony warrants. But that information can’t be shared, right? And anyway, they will change all the details, as promised.

The whole thing is – as far as I can see – terribly corrupt – as bad as mail in ballots (not the absentee kind, but the simple mail in ones, already filled out and mailed for you by someone else).

I feel like doing some follow-up with this, say with the Atlanta Census Bureau. If these guys were scammers and not federal agents, well well, that would be a felony. :-)

Warrior Poet, Alexander, Trump, Biden. UPDATE on this censured post: LOL!

wp-15967121761777857732788862112125.png

[The above is the beginning of the original post. It then continued:]

Then there’s this:

wp-15967123010238024817546647187554.png

UPDATE: At this point in the original post, the rest of the post was censured. It was only like five words of personal opinion that appraised my own intentions regarding Super-Tuesday, November 3, 2020, something like, “As for me: Trump 2020,” or words to that effect. And that was the whole of it. Those words of my personal opinion outraged a very censorious personage.

My patriotic instinct made me think that this smacking down of free speech was stepping over the line. Questions came to mind:

  • Upon ordination to the priesthood, do I have no personal voice in the public square?
  • Upon ordination to the priesthood, do I have zero Constitutional First Amendment rights?
  • Upon ordination to the priesthood, do I have zero rights in the Canon Law of this One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church?

So, what did I do?

  • I asked for some links to research and dear readers sent them in. Great! I’ve yet to go through all that, but I’m most encouraged by what I see at first glance.
  • I asked for some advice from some really smart people. I find out, of course, that no matter how good I think I am at analyzing stuff, there’s always someone much better at it than yours truly. The truth of the identity concerning the complainant against yours truly then finally hit me in the middle of the night. And then I laughed out loud. I didn’t see that snowflake’s communication to the one who smacked me down (but smacked down in such a friendly manner, which I appreciate!), but methinks that my conclusion about who the complainant happens to be is at a Zero Dark Thirty 100%:

Careful! There’s some bad language in that video. Maya (actress Jessica Chastain) is my hero. As she said in the script concerning the whereabouts of terrorist Usama bin Laden:

  • “It’s 100% he’s there. O.K. fine. 95% because I know certainty freaks you guys out. But it’s a 100.”

Hah. Yes. LOL. It’s the logistics of the communication made to me that convinces me, the when and the who of it. As pointed out by advisors, forcing that communication at that time by that person would be quite impossible even for really clever people heading up political campaigns. There’s only one person who, as the original complainant, could and would do this according to the time and manner of communication. Yes. I agree with that. 100%.

In the past, the complainant – in my Mayaesque opinion – a most tender entitled snowflake, has used the same method of having me smacked down, hiding in the background and having someone else smack me down, which is entirely unfair to the messenger. He’s a grown man. The messenger is a woman. He hides like a coward behind her. Now twice. That guy has got to stop this abuse of women. What a cruel guy. What a coward. All bullies are cowards. He should just put a comment in the post itself, or send me an email, as he has my email address. But no, he has to use a woman as human shield from the words which might come back at him, demonstrating how unreasonable he is.

The previous incident? He had written something about active shooters in churches, having it that people should just go ahead and die in all their hundreds, and that church-goers should never ever have competent and capacitated security at hand, having it that no one should ever micro-aggression terrorist mass-killers by supporting the God-given right to protect the innocent from unjust, mortal and being-delivered aggression that we’ve too often seen with the bully tender-snowflakes in this otherwise great country.

I challenge this coward to come out from behind his anonymity so we can discuss law of all kinds, natural, civil, federal, church, so we can discuss duties and rights, so we can discuss candidates for the coming election, comparing the most pro-death guy, the most anti-church guy, to the most pro-life guy, the one who has done the most to protect the free exercise of religion.

Let’s lay down some background:

  • What I wrote in five words about Trump in 2020 I wrote during my down-time, in zero official capacity as a cleric, not on any of our church campuses, but on my own private computer in all the privacy of my dwelling, with my own internet connection I myself pay for, disregarding what I can otherwise claim from the diocese. I didn’t do this from the pulpit, or on any parish campus, not Catholic radio nor in a Catholic newspaper. I didn’t use the church bulletin, which hasn’t been published this entire time of Covid-1984. I didn’t use any church function no matter where it might be.
  • The blog I write on is my own personal blog. I myself pay the fees. My blog has NOTHING to do with the parish. It has nothing to do with the Diocese. It has nothing to do, believe me, with the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops. It has nothing to do with the Holy See. Nothing to do with Pope Francis. I say all this loudly: look at the ABOUT page of this blog. I pay for the blog domain as well. I designed it myself. No one edits it for me. No one is required to read this. Almost zero people in the parish do read it. Those who do so only read it once in a while, well, except for one or two people. But even they say that they pretty much just look at the “Flowers” posts, wishing these were on Instagram. Never!

But, let’s start in the next post, if he’s willing to chime in, on the very specific IRS policy. But even prior to that, let’s discuss the fact that the parish has it’s own 501c3. I don’t have one myself. And I don’t use the 501c3 of the church. No. I pay my own income tax to the Federal Government quite apart from the parish, quite apart from the Diocese, quite apart from the Bishops Conference, quite apart from the Holy See. But I get ahead of myself.

For now, I’m just baiting this guy to show himself. I’m baiting him to throw theology of identity at me so I can smack him down about courts not going anywhere near any theology. Courts are interested in taxes, numbers, not in defining theological concepts.

Right now, I’m just shadow-boxing, as it were, since the accusation was not read to me by the messenger. It’s quite impossible to defend yourself when you don’t even know what the accusation is that is leveled against you in such a cowardly manner. However, the accusation is serious, and the polite messenger of the accuser told me how any appeal would go, who I would have to bring that appeal to. That was a threat, however nicely delivered on behalf of the accuser.

So, here’s the challenge to the accuser: send me a copy of your communication to the one who smacked me down (ever so politely) on your behalf. No, really! Be brave! For once.

I laugh out loud again. I’ve added a “Humor” entry to both the categories and tags of this post. Truly. I laugh out loud. I have really a lot to say about the morality of positions of both candidates. I will speak of those. A lot. As I say, he has no idea what he has unleashed. It’s the last thing he wants. It’s the last thing the society of his ilk wants. I’m indebted to him, of course, for I might not have done this unless it was for his misuse of women (which irks me altogether), unless it was for his anonymity to me. Thanks, bud.

For now, it’s time for me to offer Holy Mass and set about what might be a 12 hour saga of priest stuff with another priest. Such drama! I love being a priest for Jesus. And that’s the point, right? All for Jesus.

Personal blog censored by pro-Biden operative. I say: Bug off you ignorant coward, thug and buffoon that you are

wp-15967260991384585651751079356398.jpg

Fear instilled by censorship of righteous free speech as appraised in natural law, local, state and federal law, constitutional law, and the freedom of all in church law to express concerns and also be about assistance not only of the Church but also of civil society, all here in these United States of America.

But that fear is about as scary as a Jaws-Bug that could about take your finger right off, well, until you see how cowardly that bug is, how they can be captured so easily, how cowardly and bumbling and ignorant are those who would censor righteous free speech, how they can be dealt with forthwith with legal argumentation and prayer, and common sense and prayer.

I’ve been doing some consulting on being censored with really smart people and have lots of great direction and appraisals of what the results would be of any test case going up to SCOTUS, the Supreme Court of These United States. You know, all the whys and wherefores and hows and such.

Legal argumentation of censorship is all about – not so much any law – but more about the political-policy modus agendi of the IRS, the Internal Revenue Service. Taxes! They do have SWAT teams to smash down and intimidate also innocent citizens, that’s true. But it’s all political angst that they have. And they also are cowards, thugs and buffoons.

I have a lot of reading to do from the White House, a half-dozen documents from the IRS, another from the USCCB, etc. So, I digress. I’m not yet ready to respond to the censorship on a legal secular level, or even to Demoncrat operatives in the USCCB. In this preliminary post, let me conjecture about the complainant:

  1. It could be a private person, even a Catholic, say, a woman who has had many abortions and wants demoncrats to win so she’s free to sacrifice any other children to demons, or at least rationalize what she’s done in the past. Could be. I don’t know. The complaint was way too clever, way too smart. It’s not that I’ve seen the complaint. It went directly to higher ups in this land. It wasn’t personal. It wasn’t taken to me. That’s not the simple reason-less emotion of someone who aborted.
  2. It could be a demoncrat operative.  They would be much more keyed in on the use of political correctness and fear with those they deem to be cowards and sycophants to the entitled thugs and buffoons of the nation. They wouldn’t involve me. That would be brave, but they are anything but that. They are, however, street smart with the cowardly who pretend their safe spaces will protect them from this fallen world’s aggression. It won’t. I bet it’s a campaign operative.
  3. But, say it’s not. In that case, and this is at least as likely, it could be a false flag from some even more clever as a political operative in the Trump campaign. In that case, it would be to laugh long and hard, with joy and contentedness. You gotta know I’m entirely predictable, and anyone with some intel experience knows they can bait me into entrenching into writing with incisiveness by putting a the pressure on. I love working under pressure. But in this case, it’s all entertainment, for then they would know that I would know what they are up to. LOL many times over. Stay tuned.

Everything that I will say will be about two fictional politicians:

  1. A political Herod wanna-be. Herod was a disgusting murderer, killing his own family, having lusty parties at party palaces, a disgrace to the nation, to the world.
  2. Another politician that we will call Constantine.

Everything that I will say will be about two fictional political parties:

  1. The Demoncrats, who take God out of their political platform and who sacrifice the pre-born, just born and elderly to the demons of narcissism. There is no such party called Demoncrats, right? Right?
  2. The Pro Deo et Patria party, also known as the 4G0D4ALL party. ;-)

Fictional! Fake! Make-believe! Once upon a 1984! All that. I’m sure you get the idea.

So, go ahead all you censors out there. Forward this post to the IRS and all your thugs and cowardly buffoons. Have them subscribe to the blog. Have them take me to court. You have no idea what you’ve unleashed. Why’s that?

I’m been censored before by the most disgusting el-creepo some years ago. In fact, the entire blog had to come down. That’s fine. I was good with it. I knew I would learn more about the ways and means of trying to save others in the midst of hell. And I have. As I say, stay tuned. And pray a Hail Mary for all involved. Hail Mary…

Saint John Paul on voting for maniac pro-abort politicians

I’m going a million miles an hour. Can anyone find where JPII said that voting for politicians who are out to murder the preborn, the just born and the elderly when there is an extremely viable prolife and pro free exercise of religion candidate is a crime against humanity and a mortal sin?

Also, I need a link to Trump’s executive order on politics and religion.

Urgent. Yikes!

By the way… So far today besides Mass…

Dead Man Voting: sad humor

I’M RECLAIMING MY TIME MR BARR!!!

The Marxist shriek treatment against our great Attorney General William Pelham Barr the other day has a precedent which has turned into a meme:

This thuggish, buffoonish behavior was repeated by the Demoncrats ad nauseam. Here’s just one example:

I mean, the “I’m reclaiming my time” thing was repeated dozens if not hundreds of times in the four hours plus of this hearing. It would darkly humorous – but ever so very disgusting – to have all these put together in one video. The playbook was agreed upon beforehand:

  1. A Democrat asks a fake news, lying, specious question of Barr, demeaning him, slandering him, flinging into the depths of hell previously unknown low-levels of un-decorousness (which is a thing, actually).
  2. Barr, incredibly patient, entirely the gentleman, only begins to begin his answer.
  3. The Democrat thug violently interrupts, shrieking: “I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!”

And if you think that this is all ad hominem and a bit subintellectum, well, yes, that’s the level to which the Dems kept this at for four plus hours.

  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!
  • I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time! I’m reclaiming my time!…

It’s like the Covid-19 lockdowns are turning Congress into The Shining, wherein Jack becomes a dull boy:

The Dems really need to get a life. They are all fake news all the time. They are violent thugs. The “I’m reclaiming my time” thing makes the purveyors insane.

It’s all time of my life that I will never be able to get back, never be able to reclaim. Well, I take that back. I can offer that suffering for the conversion of such lost souls to the Living Truth, Christ our God, who alone, by the way, will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire.

There will be no entitled tantrums at the Last Judgment, that great and terrible day. There will be no possibility to interrupt our Lord, or to insist: “I’m reclaiming my time.” The Judge of All, the Lord God, the Almighty, will simply say, “Go ahead! Go off to your own place. Reclaim all of your time for an eternity of hell.”

We don’t want that for anyone. We want people to rejoice in conversion, in humility, in the reception of forgiveness, in the Truth and Love God IS.

Dear NC Governor Cooper: the view from this church’s Confessional.

wp-15921369145966341415801581628682.jpg

Oh my! Two people! And they’re not social distancing! But they are husband and wife, so they really don’t have to socially distance, do they? No.

We’ll continue with our normal Adoration, Confession, Mass schedule.

Moreover, this priest is chasing round about. Yesterday after going to a number of churches for a number of sacraments and Masses, I then visited another 14 people for Communion calls throughout two counties and two parishes. It would have been a lot more if I wasn’t forbidden to do sacramental calls to parishioners in a number of our nursing homes.

And if you think any future lockdown will keep me down, think again. If I were to be kept down, I think a lockdown for me would have to be in the county jail. But that’s no threat, as I could then proceed to evangelize from behind bars. There are precedents. I’m guessing that the other inmates would not be interested in harassing me, knowing that you’re the one who put me in. :-)

Just a question: How is it that there is discrimination against religion even while there is a promotion of riotous, murderous riots, with all their looting and arson and assault?

Coronavirus: Holy Mass outside? NOT! We just kill the invisible enemy dead.

wp-15903418800575281207355324517258.jpg

The famous “Photo Phil”, one of my parishioners, shared this picture of social distancing that I might put it up on my blog. And here’s a picture yet another parishioner took of how social distancing is going inside our parish church in Andrews:

wp-15903660386567422326375860334672.jpg

After all, this is the smallest parish in North America.

Governor Cooper in North Carolina was smacked down by a Federal Judge because of hateful discriminatory suppression of the free exercise of religion, which encompasses, by the way, freedom of worship as essential, and also free speech with religious and natural law formation of conscience even intervening in politics as that which is guaranteed. But Governor Cooper saw fit to insist that being in a church is unsafe (whatever of being inside a State owned ABC Liquor Store from which the Governor profits). Governor Cooper says that the air is bad inside a church. Really?

Let me respond to the Governor who is ignorant of what we, and I assume many, have done over the years with our heating and air conditioning units. On both campuses of this parish and in our Social Hall in Andrews, a retired NASA engineer installed super-strong ultraviolet light that kills mold spores as the air moves through the system so that the spores of more or less just a micron or two in size are instantly killed on the fly. This applies to a virus all the more. Nothing gets past the UVC lamp and lives:

wp-15903661102666487451114883044563.jpg

We have the cleanest air in the world.

From Wikepedia: A germicidal lamp is an electric light that produces ultraviolet C (UVC) light. This short-wave ultraviolet light disrupts DNA base pairing, causing formation of pyrimidine dimers, and leads to the inactivation of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa.

In other words, the air inside the church is much more pure than any air out in a parking lot, no matter how hot the air coming from any back-mountain preacher-man like myself. :-)

Go ahead, Governor Cooper. Make an example of us despite the Federal Judge. I’ll have your ass [apologies to donkeys all] trotted before the Department of Justice in D.C. faster than you could read further insults to hypocrites proffered by the likes of the greatest of all prophets, Saint John the Baptist, and by the God-Man, Christ Jesus, Himself. I bow to the modus operandi not of the governor, but of the very Son of the Living God. I mean, I can list more insults coming from His lips to those who would suffocate religious rights. Do I really have to?

And then we can move on to the Old Testament. Need I do that, speaking of, say, she-camels and the like? ;-)

  • People speak of honey catching more flies…. blah blah blah…
  • People speak of being “nice”… blah blah blah

Besides John the Baptist and Jesus, I respond by recalling a modern saint:

saint-jose-luis-sanchez-del-rio
