Heretical Gound Zero -
More than a few chanceries, rectories and seminaries

Yeah, we're all shocked, saddened and angered by the news stories hitting the Catholic Blogosphere concerning The Eucharist being stolen by some college punk, and now we hear of some "learned professor" (insert sarcasm here) who has defended said punk, and referred to the Eucharist as nothing more than " a frackin' cracker".

In fact, here's what this idiot specifically stated; “Can anyone out there score me some consecrated communion wafers?” Myers continued by saying, “if any of you would be willing to do what it takes to get me some, or even one, and mail it to me, I’ll show you sacrilege, gladly, and with much fanfare.

"I won’t be tempted to hold it hostage (no, not even if I have a choice between returning the Eucharist and watching Bill Donohue kick the pope in the balls, which would apparently be a more humane act than desecrating a ********* cracker) [censorship mine], but will instead treat it with profound disrespect and heinous cracker abuse, all photographed and presented here on the web.”
What a guy. A perfect example of your tax dollars at work.

Anyhow, ever since 33 AD, we've had those who deny The Real Presence of Christ in The Eucharist (John 6:61-67).

But right when we collectively shake our heads in disgust over actions like the above mentioned, we need a reminder (and a swift kick in the ass type of reminder) as to who exactly have been some of the biggest proponents against The Real Presence.

Yep, more often than not, they wear a Roman Collar.

Case in point, from the ever-so-Politically Correct and Modernist Claretians; (Emphasis mine) Some 63 percent of Catholic respondents chose option 2, calling the Eucharist "symbolic reminders," while a mere 34 percent chose "changed into the Body and Blood." For those between 18 and 29 years of age the disparity was even greater, with 70 percent preferring "symbolic reminders."

"We believe that a commitment to social justice is as much a part of being Catholic as the Eucharist is, and we think it’s time to bring involvement in social justice back to the center of parish life."

"On Youth Sunday," he says, "we might have 70 or 80 up around the altar—there’s the youth choir and the junior ushers and the ministers of hospitality and the readers and the dancers (we call them the movement team), and maybe eight or more servers." When the young participate, he believes, they’re inclined to take more seriously what the church is all about, and so are their parents and other relatives.
"The movement team"? Yeah... I'm ready to have a movement all of my own after reading that. And that ain't all, fellow Bloglodytes...

Certain media darlings are often trotted out by the liberals whenever they so desire to take a swipe at Catholicism, such as Fr. Richard McBrein of the Notre Dame Theology Department, who has, among other cheap shots at Catholicism (and a generous dose of outright heresy), described Transubstantiation as "medieval". Discredited, but oft quoted Hans Kung, denies that the Mass is the re-presentation of Calvary, thus denying The Real Presence.

And that ain't all.

Fr. Karl Rahner - Proposes a "transfinalization" or "transignification" which claims the "meaning" of the bread changes after Consecration - a symbol - rather than the Bread really and truly changing into the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. This heresy is specifically condemned in the Pope Paul VI Eucharistic Encyclical Mysterium Fidei.

Fr. Edward Schillebeeckx - Proposes a "transignification" whereby the "sign" of the bread and wine are changed into the "sign" of Jesus Christ. This heresy is specifically condemned in the Pope Paul VI Eucharistic Encyclical Mysterium Fidei.

But we don't have to go to the latest edition of the National Catholic Distorter to get our recommended daily allowance of apostasy. There's a pretty good chance you'll find it within your own Deanery. As I've posted in the past, check out what many of Catholic priests are reading.

It's time for a Papa Benny re-establishment of order.

Or better yet, let's do it ourselves ;)

In a post on my blog I used an off-color Italiano word to desribe the UCF student.

Given that just 2 posts below this is a picture of your "Little Relic" I cannot do the same here to express my opinion of this gavone (1 of the few clean words I can use for either of them). I am just too much of a gentleman to do so. But, I am sure you have thought of the equivelent English words.

I do have to thank you for not posting the worst part of that US Catholic article. The part about Good Shepherd Parish in Menomonee Falls, WI turned my stomach so bad I had to stop reading for a while.

You know what kills me? Or should I say *scares* me? If, say, a Catholic Priest should happen to read a passage from the Bible that condemns homosexuality, he gets hauled before a human rights court for "hate" speech because he's offending and hurting homosexuals, right?

Ok, so, this professor Mayers openly offends and hurts Catholics and.......... totally gets away with it! Why isn't *he* being hauled into court for making Catholics feel bad? A f***** cracker? Why isn't this crap that he's saying considered "hate" speech against Catholics? I mean, we believe that that host is the body and blood of Jesus Christ... I'm as offended by this hideous situation as any homosexual is when they hear homosexual sex condemned in the bible.

You know, what's good for the gander is good for the goose! If these mamsy-pamsy Liberal pieces of crap want to go and persecute Catholics for "offending" them then why is the same law blind when Liberals offend Catholics?

Someone told me not too long ago that persecution is coming... it ain't coming. It's HERE.

I hope you don't mind if I post this article segment over at my blog... I'm not trying to steal your thunder, I just want to pass the torch!! GOD BLESS!

Ahhh yesss....I love to read about heresy on a Sunday here in the Diocese of Rochester - oh wait - that's redundant. Our Dicoesan newspaper's online site has an incorporated thumbnail link so we can read what McBrien's up to any any time.

And further to Michelle's thoughts, as I said to another blogger friend, imagine if that knucklehead prof promised to invade a mosque and youtube himself crapping on a prayer mat? He'd be fired for hate speech, not to mention the subject of a fatwa, and it'd be all over the news.

The silence in the mainstream media on this loser and what he proposes to do to the consecrated Host, as far as I can tell, is deafening.

This type of abomination should be expunged from the schools. I am too angry to type.
