That note was put up on Monday May 16. Today, May 17, Tuesday, that note looks like this:
There are no “issuance days” scheduled for more than a year into the future.
Of course, saying nothing forever is also a decision into which they would have been bullied, thus nullifying the Supreme Court, nullifying Tri-partite government, ending the Constitution and the rule of law, with zero chance for justice, nullifying these USA.
I doubt the Justices will let this silence stand for long. It could be that they will wait until the result of the investigation into who the leaker is and why they did what they did, and for whom. That would make great sense. Some of the Justices are really quite upset.
This is one of the best ever efforts of Tucker. Excellent summary of the way things are.
I’m looking for the bishops to say something, anything, with such clarity. And if any bishop actually believed that Jesus is the Son of the Living God and that the Most Blessed Sacrament is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus, that Bishop should personally be writing a lengthy heart-felt statement, full front page of their diocesan newspapers about Jesus and the Blessed Sacrament, about protecting the least of the brethren in the womb, the image of Jesus. They shouldn’t depend on Styrofoam CNS of the USCCB. That’s B.S. They need to lead their flocks. We’re literally dying out here.
The Satanic side threatens to burn the Most Blessed Sacrament as the Satanists push for abortion at Catholic churches following the leak of the possible SCOTUS decision on Roe v Wade. An entire tabernacle was just stolen from a Catholic Church. Here’s a picture before it was stolen:
And here’s a screen shot of the website of that church advertising The Forbidden:
Good for that priest for doing what is generally FORBIDDEN in the Church, the offering of the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. So many of our bishops are doing everything they can to kick Jesus in the face. But to speak for Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament, to speak for the least of the brethren, the image of Jesus? What happened to our priorities? It’s God first! Instead, it’s all about the murder of the little ones in the womb for medical reasons of obtaining “vaccines.” That’s all good, they say.
As I say, Tucker nails it like no bishop has. Well worth the listen, that video up top.
The statement “We’ll be burning the Eucharist” (their capitalization) shows that this is likely a Catholic who had numerous abortions. Too sad, that.
Communion in the Hand no longer
In my diocese the policy is that people have the option to receive Holy Communion in the hand. However:
At the Spanish Vigil Mass everyone receives on the tongue, kneeling, always.
At any TLM Mass it’s an absolute law enforced by the Holy See, also in times of Covid, that Holy Communion must be received only on the tongue. We follow the law.
There are also a number of English Masses at which most all receive on the tongue. Those who receive in the hand thus number between one and three people per week. That’s it. But…
Whatever about pro-Communion in the hand policy in any (arch)diocesan policy in any given place, the superceding duty of a priest in the universal law of Holy Mother Church is to protect the Most Blessed Sacrament from danger of desecration. After all, this is the Lord God, Christ Jesus, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity who is the Most Blessed Sacrament. Therefore, we will no longer be providing Communion in the hand. At this time in history it is simply too dangerous. Period.
But I doubt that the statement about burning the Eucharist mostly regards stealing the Blessed Sacrament at Communion time and making videos in church of burning the Sacred Host with a Bic Lighter. It’s more likely that they’re referring their Molotov cocktails thrown on the altar during Mass, thrown at the tabernacle. After all, bigger flames means more hits on the internet. Just think: eternity in hell for a few internet hits. Sad, that.
As a priest, I love that Jesus would have me act in His Person (in Persona Christi) when reciting His wedding vows with His Bride the Church with the Consecrations at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, this is my body given up for you in Sacrifice, my blood poured out for you in Sacrifice. His standing in our place, the Innocent for the guilty, taking on the death we deserve for original sin and our own rubbish is how He has the right in His own justice to have mercy on us: “Father! Forgive them!” And then, to provide the Most Blessed Sacrament to pious followers of Jesus at Holy Mass… I’m in heaven, so happy, and so are the communicants with their bright and beaming faces.
I would hate to cancel Communion for the faithful altogether during Holy Mass because of some monstrous shriekers crashing in and blocking the free exercise of religion. Ruth Sent Us is trespassed from the property. They have no free speech rights on our private property. I’m just not going to permit desecration of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Not on my watch. Ain’t gonna happen.
Jesus is the Head of the Body, we are the members of that Body of Christ. Jesus, who was Himself an unborn baby for nine months in the womb of His dear Immaculate Mother, doesn’t take kindly to the least of the brethren being ripped to shreds, melted with saline solution, vacuumed with cutting machines, decapitated, stabbed, dismembered. Jesus isn’t happy with this even when it’s done for medical research. Do you hear that, you murderous bishops who do anything Satan, Joe Biden and Fauci tell you to do for “vaccines”? Do you bishops think you can point the finger at Ruth Sent Us? You yourselves set up the culture for them to do that. If you have zero respect for babies in the womb you have zero respect for Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. That’s how it works. Ruth Sent Us made that connection. It seems they have more faith than you. But they are following you.
We must get back to Jesus. That’s the last thing so many of the bishops want to do. More on that in another post about the Synod on Synodality, the Synod on Dialogue. It’s worse than I thought.
And by the way, where’s Pope Francis in all of this? I’ll tell you where he is. He’s meeting with the liturgical terrorists who support Traditionis custodes, telling them that there are terrible people out there who use the liturgy for division by supporting or not supporting, you know, like, stuff, and, you know… stuff, never naming anything one way or another, just brow beating… who… for what…? That’s impressive! Stuff! And, like…. stuff! Meanwhile, babies in the womb are attacked, Catholic churches are attacked, the Most Blessed Sacrament is attacked.
With the White House basically encouraging terrorism, you know, saying things like we aren’t actually, like, actually encouraging terrorism but surely we, like, encourage mostly peaceful protests, like, for sure… don’t be expecting the DOJ or DHS to circle back and investigate domestic terrorism and hate crimes.
They notice it, but they turn a blind eye. I don’t know, but I recall, say, the FBI baiting idiots into some act of terrorism so as to see who’s connected with them, but with the intention of stopping them before they actually see any plot put into action, but then fail at stopping the terrorist act, say, a mass shooting. Then, the very second it hits the news it’s all politicized so that it’s all the fault of the 2nd amendment and we need to get rid of the filibuster. So, plenty of false-flag operations. In this case, no one is saying that we have to have Molotov-cocktail control legislation[!] but we just hear more circling back to a kind of encouragement of terrorism from the White House: we’re not exactly encouraging terrorism but, like, you know, we’re surely encouraging, like, mostly peaceful protests; we’re not exactly encouraging the assassination of Supreme Court Justices, but, like, we’re just encouraging mostly peaceful protests at the family homes of those Justices, happy with the doxing of addresses so as to terrorize the families, because it’s all about the children…
The meme these days regarding those (witch)crafting the perspective, as they say, is that they are not self-aware, as if they don’t realize that everything they say is a lie, the exact opposite of the truth, so that the irony couldn’t be more incisive. But I don’t think they are so stupid. And they don’t think that anyone thinks their lies are lies, but that they get support from people who recognize the lies as open mockery of the truth. They don’t embrace the lie. They aren’t woke into some fog of lies. No. They create the mockery of the truth with their lies. They work at it. Meanwhile, people die. It’s adrenaline having them live for power cut off from justice, cut off from service, the purposed murder of the innocent in the womb, almost all of whom are little black babies, because it’s all about the genocide of black people by way of attrition. The deep state is entirely racist, genocidal. They’ll stop at nothing. The destruction of America is no worry to them. Their only concern is the feelings of power they have to kill.
“Christian denomination”? That would be the Catholic Church founded by Christ Jesus, Son of the Living God, with something like 1.4 billion members. We’re The Church, not just some denomination, nor just a particular back-creek congregation.
All Catholic parishes in these USA, many tens of thousands of churches, are put on notice that they may be subjected to hate crimes wrought by pro-abortion hate groups in their protests against the possible SCOTUS decision overturning Roe v Wade of 1973, which would then kick legislation on abortion back to the voters of the various States. The hate crimes are threatened to happen this weekend, May 7 and 8, at the Mothers Day weekend Masses. It would be prudent to jack up situational awareness. Incidents are likely to take place anywhere that the most publicity can be had, whether that’s a cathedral or the tiniest parish in North America. Terrorism always wants to say that it can happen to you, wherever you are.
Catholic churches are private property. No one has a public, entitled “right” to be there. Anyone can be trespassed. Anyone causing real violence may be subject to receiving proportionate force to stop their violence, to stop the threat of already being delivered violence that threatens life or severe bodily compromise. But don’t escalate anything, ever, for any reason. That’s what they want. Don’t do it. You do what they do when it comes to them crossing the line of violence, meaning, as THE rule of engagement, don’t be proactive, be reactive: If a baby is smashed to the floor you take the perp(s) to the floor with only enough force as is necessary. You call 911 first. You video everything from the beginning. But I digress with that which needs a separate post. Let’s continue:
Antifa and BLM, not (yet) pegged with a domestic terrorist appellative, will be assisting groups “honoring” deceased super-abortion-maniac Ruth Bader Ginsburg by terrorizing an entire class of people (tens of millions of Catholics), perhaps with real violence, the smashing of statues, the breaking of windows, the usual spray-painting, perhaps pepper spraying, throwing of acid, sucker-punches, stabbing, gunfire, Molotov cocktails, arson, looting… you know, the usual “mostly peaceful protests” specifically with the intention of forcing the government into a political change. This is the very definition of domestic terrorism.
Bill Donohue of the Catholic League notes how idiotic are these protests against the SCOTUS, for while RBG “was an abortion-rights advocate, she also made it clear that the decision to legalize abortion should not have been made by the Supreme Court – it was up to lawmakers to render such a ruling. Moreover, she was never one to promote violence, never mind counsel a Nazi-like attack disrupting Mass.”
Bill Donohue stops short of the domestic terrorism description, for now, but does promise to “press the authorities to prosecute any attack on a Catholic Church as a hate crime.” We’ll see what happens.
Bill is right to say that “if President Biden does not address this issue, he is aiding and abetting anti-Catholicism.” I wish he would also denounce various ecclesiastics who do not pastorally correct Joe Biden to the scandal of the entire world.
Anyway, Bill continues on to say that “these thugs need to be stopped in their tracks.” I don’t know what Bill means by that, perhaps he means legally, even months and years down the line. I don’t know.
But that brings up the question of stopping violence:
What about thugs needing to be stopped while they are throwing the little babies of our parish down and smashing their brains out all over the floor?
What about thugs needing to be stopped while they are breaking the frail bodies of our elderly parishioners?
What about the thugs needing to be stopped who march right up to desecrate the Blessed Sacrament during Holy Mass?
In North Carolina law, such disruption quickly ramps up to aggravated felony charges.
“But why are at all concerned about your little parish, Father George!? It’s the tiniest in North America! No one cares about your little church, Father George! Pfft!”
Don’t be so sure. We’ve already had what seemed to be a George Soros funded group from the university campus up the highway come and visit the church on a Sunday while we were still counting the collection, scoping us out, actually asking about our ability to defend ourselves. Get that? They wanted to use the parish to set up community organizing. Such smart university students! I asked them a few incisive questions. They left totally humiliated. They left. But I’m guessing they’ll be back, perhaps this very Mother’s Day weekend.
“Surely it’ll be just a bit of spray paint, Father George! You’re such an ol’ meanie not wanting their polite communications blared and sprayed! You’re on the wrong side of history, Father George! It’s all about megaphones and screaming and spray paint! Out with the old, in with the new!”
So, for instance, as to that spray-painting on a Catholic Church entrance out in Colorado – “My body, my choice” – my response would be that the Most Blessed Sacrament, the Body of Christ, is Christ Jesus, and He does have the choice to send such people straight to hell. His Body, His choice. Truth. Jesus was in the womb of His own Blessed Mother for nine months, and He doesn’t take kindly to those who murder the “least of the brethren” in the womb.
Antifa is acting on behalf of the murderous pro-abortionists. Just my opinion, but that likely means arson, murder, assault, destruction of property…
And then BLM – Black Lives Matter – want to protect the genocide of little black babies by supporting abortion directed at black neighborhoods, reducing the population of our black brothers and sisters by the millions, by the tens of millions. Remember BLM:
How would you like that marching up the aisle to the front of your parish church?
That may be coming to a Catholic Church near you on Mothers Day, this weekend.
Some of them will be dressed like this:
It looks like they are being escorted out of a Catholic Church by security using great deescalation techniques. Think deescalation. We don’t have paid security. We have guardian angels. We have simply really a lot of extremely capable people. Even our visitors are most awesome, FBI agents and military operators of all sorts, on vacation here in the mountains, to get away from it all, but absolutely ready to intervene in any situation.
The leak of the mere draft of an opinion of Justice Samuel Alito is, of course, purposed to endanger the lives of the five Justices who sided with that draft at whatever time it was put forward as a draft. Whatever about the lives of the individual Justices, this leak is an attempt to assassinate the viability of the Court. It leads to violent protests which only took seconds to take place with professionally printed signs. All pre-organized. This is subversion, treason. Is it one of the other four Justices on the other side who did this, or ordered this to be done? The full force of the law should be put into effect. If any Justice is killed, hurt or suffers terroristic threats, whatever Justice who did this or ordered this MUST be (1) impeached and (2) imprisoned.
Instead, the Dems, all seemingly pre-organized, immediately scream for politically expanding the Court and/or executing the filibuster, calling the leak a “report”, all of them. Can Nancy and Joe still receive Holy Communion as they maniacally continue to push for the murder of tens and hundreds of millions of innocent and defenseless unborn human beings? Yes, screams the Cardinal Archbishop of Washington, D.C., Wilton Gregory: “Kill ’em all! Murder all the babies! Let’s all go straight to hell with the pro-abort politicians! Yay!”
But let’s bring up the race card, shall we?
It is black women who are with-child who are targeted by Planned Parenthood. It is a genocide of African-Americans by way of abortion that literally the party of the KKK, the Dems, have always pushed: “Kill ’em all!” scream the Dems!”
But wait… what? Black Dem politicians have pushed for genocide of black babies? Yes.
The liberal mass media and the Dems pushing for abortion, black and white, but mostly rich, elite white Dems, like 99%, what to wipe all black people from the face of the earth. And the few black news anchors or squadrons of black politicians hotly lusting for abortion… just… wow…
Do you know who wants to save the lives of black people, those defenseless black babies? It’s mostly poor white Catholics. Yep. Poor white Catholics are called “white supremacists.” No. That would be the KKK, and they are wanting all blacks, Jews and Catholics dead, do they not? Catholics are for life. But what about Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry et alii, you ask? They have removed themselves from all that good and holy, all that is Catholic. Catholics are pro-life, absolutely, from natural conception to natural death. We don’t want to abort the least of the brethren of Jesus, who was Himself so tiny in the womb of Mary for nine months:
But I’m sure I’m now at the top of the list to be raided by the new SWAT teams of the new Czar for Disinformation of the Dems. Whatever. I’m happy to die in witness of little Jesus.
An excellent breakdown of the draft. Thanks Ben Shapiro:
The question is, where is the free exercise of religion for health care workers?
Also, where does this leave the military?
This from the opening page of the “stay” order:
“Applicants now seek emergency relief from this Court, arguing that OSHA’s mandate exceeds its statutory authority and is otherwise unlawful. Agreeing that applicants are likely to prevail, we grant their applications and stay the rule.”
At the end of the decision for 100+ employees companies we read the conclusion for the “stay”:
“The applications for stays presented to JUSTICE KAVANAUGH and by him referred to the Court are granted. OSHA’s COVID–19 Vaccination and Testing; Emergency Temporary Standard, 86 Fed. Reg. 61402, is stayed pending disposition of the applicants’ petitions for review in the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and disposition of the applicants’ petitions for writs of certiorari, if such writs are timely sought. Should the petitions for writs of certiorari be denied, this order shall terminate automatically. In the event the petitions for writs of certiorari are granted, the order shall terminate upon the sending down of the judgment of this Court. It is so ordered.”
A couple days ago, Tucker interviewed “Center for American Liberty CEO and civil rights attorney Harmeet Dhillon” on “the constitutionality of President Biden’s COVID-19 OSHA vaccine regulations.” She said:
“The fact the court is still sitting on this and hasn’t ruled yet produces tremendous expense, uncertainty, stress and disruption to the American economy. I really hope for the sake of all those employees, employers that the court rules quickly so that we can move on and arrange our affairs accordingly.”
Yep. I agree with that. And as a priest, I add that the (cardinal) (arch)bishops aren’t helping matters, indeed, are directly hurting the Lord’s Little Flock when they forbid priests who cannot, will not get the “vaccine” to administer Sacraments. The (cardinal) (arch)bishops who have not directly attacked priests say that they are waiting for the decision of the SCOTUS. No. They are just cowards. The mandate is in full effect already. They say NOTHING. They are derelict in their duties as shepherds of the flock. They are fake, fraudulent shepherds. Harmeet Dhillion continued:
“Meanwhile, we all know that this vaccine is not particularly effective against the current version of the virus,” she said, “so it all really undermines both citizen confidence in the judiciary and the legislature and in public health. This is really a bad situation for the future of public health in our country, the way the government is handling this particular situation.”
As a priest, I add that the cowardly inaction of the (cardinal) (arch)bishops is really a bad situation for the future of the Church in our country, in the world, the way that the (cardinal) (arch)bishops are handling this particular situation.
Yesterday, 17 December 2021, the 6th circuit court of appeals got the case by lottery, and overturned the previous stay of execution, so to speak, for the vax mandate for companies of 100+ employees, a minimum including all (arch)dioceses in the USA. The mandate and it’s draconian penalties are now fully back in force.
Just moments after that decision, yesterday, 17 December 2021, a coalition of dozens of companies made an emergency appeal to the Supreme Court of these United States. Finally. But given the recent track record of new “Justices” of SCOTUS, there is little hope, but we will pray. The problem is the the history of SCOTUS going way back is extremely pro-vaccine. Yep. If SCOTUS refuses to hear the appeal, the mandate and country-ending penalties remain in place.
“Penalties for noncompliance with the ETS [Emergency Temporary Standard] are consistent with existing OSHA violation penalties. OSHA may issue a penalty for violating or failing to follow the ETS up to $13,653 per violation. Penalty for failure to abate an OSHA citation may be up to $13,653 per day beyond the abatement date. For willful or repeated violations, the penalty may be up to $136,532 per violation.” (National Law Review)
As of this very moment, the first deadline of the mandate, 5 December 2021, is already past. The more draconian mandate deadline of 4 January 2022 (the 30th anniversary of my priestly ordination) is just a couple of weeks away.
I won’t comply with any abortion-tainted murderous fake-vaccine. Nor can I afford $13,653.00 dollars every single day, nor – when it is found out I’m obstinate – $136,532.00 per violation, that is, per day.
An extensive summary of OSHA requirements and penalties and deadlines: HERE.
There is zero chance that any (arch)diocese is going to pay $136,532.00 per violation, that is, per day, per priest who is not vaxed, and let’s just say that that’s for the reason that any (arch)diocese would be bankrupt before the projected end of the first tentative mandate period: 4 May, 2022. That date will, at any rate, likely be pushed forward beyond Super Tuesday, November, 2024. Right? That’s the best case scenario for motivations, bankruptcy.
If SCOTUS lets the mandate stand, I have to wonder what will happen to tens of millions of people, many of them sheep of the Lord’s Little Flock. Loss of jobs, loss of residence, total loss. Their being thrown into a dumpster will have a knock-on effect for hundreds of millions of people nationally and then, of course, on the rest of the world.
“But Father George! Father George! You’re so dramatic! The SCOTUS will take up the case and will rule the way YOU want them to rule, Father George! The world does revolve around you and your little desires! Don’t worry! Just get the vaccine! We did!”
So say the top shepherds of the Lord’s Little Flock, from the Pope on down, increasingly sarcastic, increasingly vicious.
For myself, I couldn’t care less about being thrown into a dumpster. I am concerned about the Lord’s Little Flock: what about the provision of the Sacraments for the lambs who want the Sacraments?
And the answer from the Pope on down… is…
I mentioned this post to Father Gordon this morning, and his response was:
“Let’s go, Brandon!”
If I were to get the testing every week ($139.00 per test) it would amount to $7,228.00 per year.
OSHA already realizes that there may be unavailability of tests and those surveilling tests but have not offered a work-around for that.
Many (arch)bishops around the world, already mandating the vaccine for their priests and workers and all volunteers in parishes, etc., mock those who ask for a religious exemption. Yep.
Lemme get this right: priests who offer Mary’s Son at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass are being required to be complicit in the murder of babies, the littlest of the brethren, by getting a vax that was researched on the organs ripped from those babies, was developed with the organs ripped from those babies, or was tested on organs ripped from those babies? Yep. That’s the case. I will not comply.
Please, share this post… Maybe another priest will see it and be encouraged…
While SCOTUS seems to defend the free exercise of religion in this decision, I posit that this is another step down a slippery slope, for the free exercise of religion is actually essential, while Chinamart is not. There’s no comparison. True, California had smacked down Constitutional rights – given by God, not man, by the way – so that Chinamart was held to be infinitely more essential than any free exercise of religion. But SCOTUS merely putting the two on par with each other is not the solution. No. The free exercise of religion is absolutely essential – against Joey (The Heretic – anti-Catholic) Biden.
“The No Religious Test Clause of the United States Constitution is a clause within Article VI, Clause 3: ‘The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.’ It immediately follows a clause requiring all federal office holders to take an oath or affirmation to support the Constitution. This clause contains the only explicit reference to religion in the original seven articles of the U.S. Constitution. The ban on religious tests contained in this clause protects not only federal officeholders and employees but it is applied to the states as you can see with the wording ‘State Legislatures and several states’.” (W)
We should keep in mind that:
(1) We also see in the very first amendment to the Constitution a recognition that there is a God-given, unalienable right to “the free exercise of religion,” which underlines not only the “no religious test” clause, but also the non-establishment clause. A “religious test” implies an already established State Religion (however secular), which passes only those in whom the dogma of true religion does not live deeply, but is rather abandoned for the fake State Religion that is dedicated to smashing down the Living Truth of true religion.
(2) The “free exercise of religion clause” does NOT refer to the government having the unalienable God-given right to smash God down in those who believe in God, as in the fiction that there can ever be a separation of Church and State, as if the State could never be made up of individuals who themselves also make up the Church.
A religious test means that those who do not belong to the anti-truth fake State Religion are not only second class citizens who cannot hold any public office, but are to be considered enemies of the State, a cancer in the body- politic that must be removed at any cost, with any violence. If you are Jewish, you have to wear a yellow Star of David so that the State can exterminate you. Get it?
Moving on to Dianne Feinstein vs Amy Coney Barrett:
Dianne Feinstein is a really smart lady with a complicated experience with religion. She holds herself to be Jewish, but attended Orthodox church services, meanwhile transferring from a Jewish day school to a Catholic school. In other words, she’s altogether familiar with, let’s call it, Judeo-Christianity. If there is one truth which shines out in both the Hebrew Scriptures, the Septuagint, and the New Testament, it’s that God is Himself Living Truth, and that we are creatures of this Creator, who is Himself un-manipulatable, and who expects His creatures to be His good sons and daughters, walking with integrity and honesty in this Living Truth.
Then there’s ACB, Amy Coney Barrett, a pious, sincere Catholic, who is aware that she can live her faith by way of the unalienable God-given right to the free exercise of religion, yes, even in the public square.
Here’s the deal: our unalienable rights are largely to be found in Natural Law and, get this, in the Ten Commandments. Reason and proper Faith are both from God, and do not contradict each other.
Instead, Dianne Feinstein, who should know better, quietly shrieked at ACB in the latter’s confirmation hearings a while back that the dogma lives deeply in ACB. Diane Feinstein thus dissed the Living Truth of God, thus dissed the U.S. Constitution, thus dissed the Bill of Rights, those unalienable God-given rights of the free exercise of religion, free of persecution from the State and from any wrongly established State Religion with all its concomitant religious tests.
It is as much as if Dianne Feinstein were to have said to Amy Coney Barrett: “Here’s your train ticket to Auschwitz. These gentlemen will bring you to the train. You’ll have plenty of company, all those who believe in God instead of the political correctness of the deep-as-hell State Religion which we always demand for civil service and from all civilians.”
I realize that some will be up in arms, saying that it is a crime against humanity to use the fact of the destruction of millions of Jewish lives so as to make such an analogy of the exact same thing proceeding to take place. This is exactly how the Holocaust became possible. I say that to make such an analogy honors my Jewish brothers and sisters who were slaughtered and who would not want this to be done to anyone. I say that not to make such an analogy is not only an insult to our Jewish brothers and sisters who were so viciously, cruelly murdered, but it is also a specious use of their deaths to ensure persecution of so many others, and, by the way, also other Jewish lives: if the State can have a religious test for Amy Coney Barrett, it can also have one for anybody. It’s just a sad irony that Dianne Feinstein holds herself to be Jewish at the same time.
On May 29, 2020, Chief Justice John Roberts sided (again) with the four anti-Constitution Justices on the nine member U.S. Supreme Court so as to reject the free exercise of religion in the first amendment of the Constitution so that, in this illegitimate legislation from the bench, discrimination against religion is held to be lawful.
ABC Liquor and big-box stores have long been opened up to record crowds, jammed with customers more than they’ve ever been, even while mega-churches that can seat thousands are limited to a minister and nine others. What is it that governors quite commonly landed on the number ten? It’s arbitrary. A mockery. An attack on religion. It’s out and out discrimination. No one gives a damn. Will there be any faith when the Lord returns?
The consequence of this illegitimate legislation from the bench is that governors are free to burn the Constitution, and then burst into churches and drag people out, arrest and fine and imprison the minister.
In North Carolina the way this plays out is that the first offense by the minister is a second class criminal misdemeanor. The second and third offenses are felonies. That means a very long time in prison.
When the first enumerated unalienable right in the U.S. Constitution, recognized as provided by Almighty God Himself – the free exercise of religion – is trashed by fallen human politician, all other rights fall, the right to assemble, the right to free speech, the right to… write, the right to defend the innocent, on and on. And we immediately saw that with so many of the tyrant dictator governors. It’s lockstep, from freedom to being smashed down, 0 to 100, in just moments.
The great Justice Brett Kavanaugh, in dissent, had it that such anti-Constitution wrongful legislation from the bench is a restriction on the free exercise of religion that “discriminates against places of worship and in favor of comparable secular businesses. Such discrimination violates the First Amendment.”
Those in the judiciary who wrongfully legislate from the bench, those in executive office who usurp the legislature to themselves as tyrant dictators, are, of course, cowards. I would like to see them personally come to this smallest parish in these United States and brutally attempt to interfere with the reverent celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It’s an attempt that will not end in desecration of the Most Blessed Sacrament. I will personally see to it that the Son of the Living God at what is the celebration of the Last Supper will not be smashed to the ground. It’s not gonna happen on my watch. But they are cowards.
What will happen? This Catholic priest will continue to offer Holy Mass and provide all Holy Sacraments to Christ’s faithful, come what may. I don’t look to the coward John Roberts to get permission from the State to exercise my priesthood for Jesus. I don’t give a hoot what the Supreme Court says. The free exercise of religion is a right which is unalienable and provided by God. Compared to God, who in hell does John Roberts think he is? He’s just another coward. I never cave to cowards.
How about the Department of Justice? Will Bill Barr back a case that will overturn the Supreme Court’s own B.S.?
As the POTUS said: Open the churches! We need prayer!
Back to tyrant Governor Cooper and directly addressing him: Here’s the schedule today, Governor. I’m making it easy for you:
6:00-7:00 AM Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament and Confessions at Holy Redeemer Church in Andrews, in Cherokee County.
8:00 AM Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament and Confessions at Prince of Peace Church in Robbinsville, in Graham County.
8:30 AM Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at Prince of Peace Church in Robbinsville, in Graham County.
10:30 AM Confessions at Holy Redeemer Church in Andrews, in Cherokee County.
11:00 AM Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at Holy Redeemer Church in Andrews, in Cherokee County.
Distribution of Holy Communion all over WNC.
And, hey! Yesterday, we had a funeral.
Here’s the deal: I give people all the warnings, policies, dispensations, but I’m not policing anything from the Altar as I’m not a minister of justice of the State while I’m proceeding with religious rites. Never. Never, ever.
Here’s the deal: there are multiple rounds of applause and cheers and statements of agreement from my tiniest of all congregations.
But, go ahead, tyrant Governor Cooper. Come in person and break us up and smash us to the ground and arrest and imprison us. Go ahead and try to throw the Blessed Sacrament to the ground. It will be an attempt, only.
1 For the leader. A psalm of David. 2 I waited, waited for the LORD; who bent down and heard my cry, 3 Drew me out of the pit of destruction, out of the mud of the swamp, Set my feet upon rock, steadied my steps, 4 1 And put a new song in my mouth, a hymn to our God. Many shall look on in awe and they shall trust in the LORD. 5 Happy those whose trust is the LORD, who turn not to idolatry or to those who stray after falsehood. 6 How numerous, O LORD, my God, you have made your wondrous deeds! And in your plans for us there is none to equal you. Should I wish to declare or tell them, too many are they to recount. 7 Sacrifice and offering you do not want; but ears open to obedience you gave me. Holocausts and sin-offerings you do not require; 8 so I said, “Here I am; your commands for me are written in the scroll. 9 To do your will is my delight; my God, your law is in my heart!” 10 I announced your deed to a great assembly; I did not restrain my lips; you, LORD, are my witness. 11 Your deed I did not hide within my heart; your loyal deliverance I have proclaimed. I made no secret of your enduring kindness to a great assembly. 12 LORD, do not withhold your compassion from me; may your enduring kindness ever preserve me. 13 For all about me are evils beyond count; my sins so overcome me I cannot see. They are more than the hairs of my head; my courage fails me. 14 LORD, graciously rescue me! Come quickly to help me, LORD! 15 Put to shame and confound all who seek to take my life. Turn back in disgrace those who desire my ruin. 16 Let those who say “Aha!” know dismay and shame. 17 But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. May those who long for your help always say, “The LORD be glorified.” 18 Though I am afflicted and poor, the Lord keeps me in mind. You are my help and deliverer; my God, do not delay!
The “Day Off” was a big day this past week. I can’t talk about almost any of it, but what I can say is that I came into rightful possession, finally, of some of my mom and dad’s stuff. The last I had seen of it was deep into the previous century.
There’s lot’s of framed documents still in their original framing and glass. The one above goes back to 1960. These include some of the actual citations for some of the higher military achievements. Those were framed up in the 1940s and 1950s. More on those later. I’ll have to talk to “The Hog” about those.
As far as the huge document above, this is dad’s accreditation as an Attorney to the Supreme Court of the United States of America. I think the embossed seal on the lower left might have been gilded back on June 6, 1960 when the document was signed (a few months after I was born). I remember this on the walls of his law offices as a little kid.
I like how the 13 stars in the seal make up a certain star…
I like how the decree is dated unapologetically “in the year of our Lord…”
This will have decades of most positive ramifications for the USA and the world.
God bless Justice Brett Michael Kavanaugh.
I was cheering at the justifiable emotion of Senator Lindsey Graham:
The absolute best round of questioning came from Republican John Neely Kennedy of Louisiana, very short, very sweet. This was the very last closing session of questioning:
So, let’s see, I’m guessing that within the next six years, we might well see the resignation of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. After all, she’s going on 86 right now. Trying to hang on would put her well into her 90s. Her placement would, of course, be another woman, right? I’m thinking of Amy Coney Barrett. Aren’t you?
As you can tell, I’m still in celebration mode. I’m a Catholic priest. But even if you’re an “atheist” but also a promoter of natural law, you should also be in celebration mode. You are, aren’t you?
