7 Lies In Less Than 2 Minutes
"People get the leaders they deserve" - Russian proverb

Please Say A Prayer...
For our dear friend, Coffee Catholic

Yes, our longtime cave-dweller is going through a bit of a rough patch. Well, a BIG rough patch. I'm not going to get into the specifics, but suffice it to say, this utterly decent Catholic wife and mother is in need of prayers.

Thanks gang. Remember, what comes around goes around.
First Came The Underwear Bombers...
Then the Booby Bombers...

Now the moslem "Black Widow Bombers". Hold on to your hats, America. As they've shown already at Beslan Massacre, Russia is just their training ground. WE are the real target.

Be warned, this posting has some fairly disturbing images. From The Sun (London);

‘Widow’ bombers
By NICK PARKER

THESE chilling images of the dead "black widow" Moscow bombers were revealed yesterday - as it was claimed that 21 MORE may be ready to strike. The Muslim women's suicide attacks killed 39 on the Russian capital's metro on Monday.

Investigators said they may have been among 30 women who trained as suicide bombers in Turkey. Nine of the group are now thought to have died in attacks - and officials are racing to track down the others.

Said Buryatsky - dubbed the Russian Bin Laden - is thought to have trained the women from the war-torn Caucasus region. He was killed by security services last month.

Investigators released a photo of a suspected male accomplice. A man is thought to have accompanied the bombers on a bus from the Caucasus. Mourners yesterday laid flowers at makeshift memorials on the metro.

Russian PM Vladimir Putin vowed to hunt down the masterminds of the bombing "to the bottom of the sewers".

Everything Old Is New Again
Different people, same collaboration with evil

WARNING! Harsh Language Alert!

I'm sure that many of you already knew that the "peaceful anti-war protestors of the 60s and 70s" were useful idiots that were actually communist inspired, and in many cases, Communist led. Case in point, the Weather Underground, the SDS, etc, etc.

Here's an example from the book "Chicano and Chicana Experiences of the War"; During preparations for the Aug 29 protest, Davis del Valle [Leftist anti-war organizer] recieved a telegram of support and congratulations addressed to the Moratorium Comittee from Ho Chi Minh and the National Liberation Front.
Hmmm... the numero uno communista himself was congratulating these rambunctious American youth who wanted nothing more than peace, love and unicorns shitting gumdrops all over everybody, huh?

Bullshit. Or... Unicornshit, as the case may be.

Along the same lines, here's some of the article from The Califiornia Catholic;
“Here's to the nuns”
Planned Parenthood head thanks women religious for ‘critical support’ of health care bill, calls it a “huge victory for women’s reproductive health”

Washington, D.C. (CNA) -- Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards has praised the Catholic religious sisters who endorsed the Senate health care bill, claiming they deserve gratitude for making “a critical demonstration of support” for a bill that significantly increased coverage of “reproductive health care.”

Writing for the Huffington Post on March 24 in her capacity as president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Richards claimed that it was Catholic nuns who “most importantly broke with the bishops and the Vatican to announce their support for health care reform.”

Closing Pagan Ritual At HereticFest 2010
Dance to the music

What's up with that ectomorphic Jedi-in-Training dancing around the butcher block at the beginning of the video? And why is he luggin' around a bowl of white phosphorus? I wonder if he's sending up a marker flare for the Mother Ship.

At 45 Seconds, I Was Chuckling
At the end, I was laughing out loud

I hear this guy is going to be hired on by The Side-Side Stooge.



Helmet tip to Former Altar Boy.
Could You Imagine If He'd Mentioned Watermelon?
From the silly to the ridiculous

Helmet tip to The Mom (who is The Man as far as I'm concerned.)

If this guy would have said "coconuts" instead, should I have been insulted due to my Guamanian heritage? Would my Irish ancestry been demeaned if he said "potatoes"? I think not.

Am I the only one who finds this manufactured outrage to be beyond stupid? Here's the article in it's entirety from the Tulsa World;
Black Caucus lawmakers want Brogdon scolded for 'chicken' remark
OKLAHOMA CITY — Members of the Oklahoma Legislative Black Caucus want Sen. Randy Brogdon, R-Owasso, admonished for a statement he made on the Senate floor Tuesday.

During debate on his measure to let voters decide whether the state should opt out of the newly approved federal health-care system, Brogdon asked how far the federal government would go in making requirements of citizens.

"Are we going to have to purchase fried chicken tomorrow for dinner?" he asked.

When questioned about his choice of words, Brogdon said that he had fried chicken for lunch and that it was on his mind.

"Members of the Oklahoma Legislative Black Caucus were both shocked and disappointed at Sen. Brogdon's comments on the Senate floor that asked whether President Barack Obama would consider forcing Oklahomans to eat fried chicken," said a statement issued Wednesday by Rep. Jabar Shumate of Tulsa, the caucus' chairman, on behalf of its members Sen. Judy Eason McIntyre of Tulsa and Reps. Mike Shelton and Anastasia Pittman, both of Oklahoma City. All four are Democrats.

Fried chicken has been part of a cultural stereotype of black Americans.

"We see from the removing of President Obama's portrait in the House chamber to Sen. Brogdon's comments in the Senate chamber a pattern of disrespectful and inflammatory actions and statements," the statement continued.

The group called on Senate Pro Tem Glenn Coffee to admonish Brogdon

Coffee, R-Oklahoma City, responded, "I believe Sen. Brogdon used a poor choice of words and it was not racially intended." He added that he would not admonish the senator.

Brogdon disagreed with Coffee that he used a poor choice of words. He said his reference to fried chicken had nothing to do with Obama.

He called the complaint "beyond sophomoric."
I would comment, but I gotta go to Kentucky Fried Chicken and pick-up dinner.

But first... proof positive that fried chicken is the magical ingredient to racial harmony.

Coming Soon To A Theater Near You
Warning! Harsh language alert

The Good, The Bad, And The Sell-Out
The Marine Corps isn't immune

The Good
"Do we somehow enhance the war fighting capabilities of the United States Marine Corps by allowing homosexuals to openly serve?" - Current Commandant of the Marine Corps, General James Conway.


The Bad-Ass
“I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts.” - Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Peter Pace.


The Sell-Out
“I think times have changed. I think I was very much taken by the Admiral Mullen's view that young men and women who wish to serve their country should not have to lie in order to do that.” - Former Commandant of the Marine Corps, General James Jones (Current National Security Advisor to The DingleBarry.)FWIW, he was raised in France.

A Whole New Meaning To "Booby Trap"
And they laughed about underwear bombers...

Here's the article in it's entirety from FoxNews.com; Terrorists Could Use Explosives in Breast Implants to Crash Planes, Experts Warn
Plastic surgeons using explosive-laden breast implants in homicide bombers could be a new terror tactic that current airport scanning methods may miss.

Female homicide bombers are being fitted with exploding breast implants which are almost impossible to detect, British spies have reportedly discovered.

The shocking new Al Qaeda tactic involves radical doctors inserting the explosives in women's breasts during plastic surgery — making them "virtually impossible to detect by the usual airport scanning machines."

It is believed the doctors have been trained at some of Britain's leading teaching hospitals before returning to their own countries to perform the surgical procedures.

MI5 has also discovered that extremists are inserting the explosives into the buttocks of some male bombers.

"Women suicide bombers recruited by Al Qaeda are known to have had the explosives inserted in their breasts under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery," Terrorist expert Joseph Farah claims.

The lethal explosives called PETN are inserted inside plastic shapes during the operation, before the breast is then sewn up.

The discovery of these methods was made after London-educated Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab came close to blowing up an airliner in the U.S. on Christmas Day. He had stuffed explosives inside his underpants.

Hours after he had failed, Britain's intelligence services began to pick up "chatter" emanating from Pakistan and Yemen that alerted MI5 to the creation of the lethal implants.

A hand-picked team investigated the threat which was described as "one that can circumvent our defense." Top surgeons have confirmed the feasibility of the explosive implants.

Explosive experts allegedly told MI5 that a sachet containing as little as five ounces of PETN could blow "a considerable hole" in an airline's skin, causing it to crash.

“Five Days From Now We Will Fundamentally Change America.” -
Barack Hussein Obama. Oct. 30, 2008.

Remember what the word "fundamentally" means. Small things like the Constitution of the United States of America are no longer relevant nor needed.


"But Because Thou Art Lukewarm, And Neither Cold, Not Hot, I Will Begin To Vomit Thee Out Of My Mouth." -
Apocalypse 3:16. Douay-Rheims Bible

Is it really asking so much to have our shepherds to have a spine? There have been pathetically few... a whopping ONE by my count... that have had the courage to speak plainly, truthfully and in no uncertain terms, in defense of Christ's Church.

Case in point;
Speaker Pelosi is not called by Jesus Christ to lead the Catholic faithful, any more than the religious Sisters in Network are, any more than the leadership of the Catholic Health Association is.Above is a direct quote from Madison (Wisconsin) Bishop Robert C. Morlino. He also is a friend of Tradition, but I digress...

I've already pointed out a couple of times how the ArchPresider Phony-Baloney Roger Mahony of Loose Angles blogs to the world that he is "encouraged by the words and promises of President Obama..." *Grovel, grovel, snort, snort.*

And our own intrepid Cardinal George of Chi-Town (you remember who's from da south-side, dontchya?);
"We are apprehensive as we look to the future, even as we applaud much of the increased care that will be available," Cardinal Francis E. George of Chicago told Catholic News Service March 23, shortly after U.S. President Barack Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. (Wow. I'm underwhelmed by this Tower of Jello.)

"We are certainly concerned about division in the church, because bishops have to be the people who are concerned about its unity, about keeping people together around Christ," he said. (I guess well deserved excommunications are off the table.)

The cardinal said it remained to be seen whether the executive order promised by Obama would be adequate to keep the status quo on federal funding of abortion.

"The president's executive order puts in some administrative protections that we are very grateful for, but an administrative order doesn't substitute for a statute," he said.
(Michael Voris has already pointed out that Dinglebarry's "executive order" is worthless. The President of the United States DOESN'T make law, nor can he change law. Congress does that.)
Probably The Best Voris Video Yet
And he's had some good ones

The signing of The Stupak Sell-Out isn't worth the paper it's written on. Says who? The Constitution of the United States of America. That's who.

There are 136 "Catholic" Democrats are in the House of Representatives. 127 voted for taxpayer funded abortions. That's 94%. That's "The Spirit" of Vatican II.

Stupak Attacks The Holy Father...
And the Church, of course

From The Washington Times; (Emphasis mine)
"The Pope and the Catholic faith does not control Catholic legislators. We must vote reflective of our districts and our beliefs..."Stupak's right. Inasmuch as neither "control" how any given legislator votes.

But if Stupak so desires to identify himself religiously as a Catholic, then best re-examine his commitment and fidelity to his Catholic Faith. As of this moment in time, he fails miserably.

I also find it interesting that such a devout Catholic as Stupak would have such words for both The Holy Father and The Church simply because it was implied that he is placing his trust in the most pro-abortion President ever.

Interesting indeed.
Roger The Dodger Gushes On About His Obamessiah
In record time

The ink wasn't even dry on the vote tally Sunday night when Socialism became even further entrenched in American law... not to mention the most pro-baby killing President ever was lionized.

I predicted that clerics of the American Patriotic Catholic Church would wax poetically and worship their Obamic Master even more than usual. I certainly wasn't disappointed.

Case in point - from Cardinal Roger Mahony Blogs LA; Health care reform passed on Sunday night, and brought millions of people out of the shadows of living without health care coverage. We have reached out to them precisely to include them fully into American life and protections.

I am encouraged by the words and promises of President Obama and the Senate leadership..."

Baucus Admits ObamaCare Breaks Obama Tax Pledge

WASHINGTON, March 23 - Senator Max Baucus (D-Mont.) has admitted that some Americans making less than $200,000 per year will face tax hikes under ObamaCare. Such tax hikes are a violation of President Obama's "firm pledge" not to raise "any form" of taxes on those making less than $250,000 per year.

During remarks tonight on the Senate floor, Baucus said:

"One other point that I think it's very important to make is that it is true that in certain cases, the taxes will go up for some Americans who might be making less than $200,000."
As Americans for Tax Reform has pointed out repeatedly, the healthcare bill signed into law today contains seven tax hikes that unquestionably violate Obama's middle class tax pledge.

Obama's promise remains for all to see at the Change.gov website: "no family making less than $250,000 will see their taxes increase."

Congressman Who Shouted 'It's a Baby Killer' on House Floor Says He Won't Apologize or Back Down

Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas) said Tuesday he will not apologize to the House of Representatives for yelling out “it's a baby killer” on the House floor Sunday night during remarks by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) just before the House finished its action on the health-care bill.

In a telephone conference call with bloggers on Tuesday afternoon, Neugebauer rejected a demand by Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), the House Democratic whip, that he apologize to the full House.

“For what?” Neugebauer asked. “I was out just speaking the truth, and my constituents know that I was out speaking the truth and people all across the country know that I was speaking the truth because their outpouring has been overwhelming.”

He added: “I won’t apologize for doing the right thing. Not gonna do it. I will apologize when they repeal this bill.”

Sr. Kehaan receives Presidential pen for supporting health care against Bishops' decision

Washington D.C., Mar 24, 2010 / 12:39 am (CNA).- Sister Carol Kehaan, President of the Catholic Health Association, has been awarded with one of the 20 pens used by President Barak Obama on Tuesday to sign the health care bill.

It is a presidential tradition to give out the pen used to sign the bill to lawmakers and proponents who have played a key role in any piece of major legislation.

“I have got to use every pen, so it’s going to take a long time,” said President Obama during the ceremony held at the White House's East Room.

Sister Kehaan, who strongly supported the controversial health care bill despite the opposition of the US Bishops, was joined in receiving presidential pens by some of the most strongly pro-abortion members of the Congress and the Senate:


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Senator Dick Durbin, majority whip
(Allegedly Catholic).

Majority whip; Max Baucus, chairman of the Finance Committee.

Senator Tom Harkin
(Allegedly Catholic)

Senator Christopher Dodd (Allegedly Catholic).

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Allegedly Catholic).

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.

James Clyburn, majority whip.

George Miller
(Allegedly Catholic).

Chairman of the Education committee; Henry Waxman.

Chairman of Energy and Commerce; Sander Levin, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.

John Dingell
(Allegedly Catholic)

Charles Rangel (Allegedly Catholic), former chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.

The list of pen recipients also includes:

Vice President Joe Biden (Allegedly Catholic).

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius (Allegedly Catholic).

Nancy Ann DeParle, health adviser to the president.

Phil Schiliro
(Allegedly Catholic), legislative liaison for the White House.

Victoria Reggie Kennedy
(Allegedly Catholic), the widow of the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy.

and President Obama
(god almighty) himself.

During the ceremony, President Obama did not sign the executive order on abortion negotiated with Congressman Bart Stupak. According to White House officials, Obama will sign the order in the Oval Office, in private, on Wednesday afternoon.

By Their Fruits You Shall Know Them
Why is this not exactly a surprise?

WARNING! Harsh Language Alert.

Here is a none too unexpected article from the California Catholic Daily; (Emphasis and comments mine) “Heavy toll”
CDC says HIV, syphilis astronomically higher in men who have sex with men

A data analysis released March 10 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention underscores the disproportionate impact of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men in the United States.

The data, presented at CDC's 2010 National STD Prevention Conference, finds that the rate of new HIV diagnoses among men who have sex with men (MSM) is more than 44 times that of other men and more than 40 times that of women.

The rate of primary and secondary syphilis among MSM is more than 46 times that of other men and more than 71 times that of women, the analysis says.

"While the heavy toll of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men has been long recognized, this analysis shows just how stark the health disparities are between this and other populations," said Kevin Fenton, M.D., director of CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. "It is clear that we will not be able to stop the U.S. HIV epidemic until every affected community, along with health officials nationwide, prioritize the needs of gay and bisexual men with HIV prevention efforts."
(Juuuuuuust maybe if they stop screwing each other in the ass... that might be a good starting point.)

Research shows that a range of complex factors contribute to the high rates of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men. These factors include high prevalence of HIV and other STDs among MSM, which increases the risk of disease exposure, and limited access to prevention services. Other factors are complacency about HIV risk, particularly among young gay and bisexual men; difficulty of consistently maintaining safe behaviors with every sexual encounter over the course of a lifetime; and lack of awareness of syphilis symptoms and how it can be transmitted (e.g., oral sex). Additionally, factors such as homophobia and stigma can prevent MSM from seeking prevention, testing, and treatment services. (In other words - worship of the Sacred Orgasm. These deviants have no problem playing Penis Roulette. That is until they've contracted a deadly disease, then it's "Ohhhhh, poor lil' fairy! This isn't your fault!" Spare me this bullshit.)

Also, the risk of HIV transmission through receptive anal sex is much greater than the risk of transmission via other sexual activities, and some gay and bisexual men are relying on prevention strategies that may be less effective than consistent condom use.

"There is no single or simple solution for reducing HIV and syphilis rates among gay and bisexual men," said Fenton. "We need intensified prevention efforts that are as diverse as the gay community itself.
(And there you go. The obvious is unrecognizable to these fools. They're still attempting to legitimize 2+2=5.)

And this must be an example of all that "Gay Pride" I've been hearing about. Since when is referring to yourselves as a 'sluts' been something to be proud of? Golly gee, is it really that much of a shocker when someone celebrates being a slut comes down with a deadly disease?
One Of The Few Real Men Left On The Continent
Dutch MP Geert Wilders


Here is some of his recent speech before the British House of Lords;
Ladies and gentlemen, not far from here stands a statue of the greatest Prime Minister your country ever had. And I would like to quote him here today:

“Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. No stronger retrograde force exists in the World. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step (…) the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”
These words are from none other than Winston Churchill wrote this in his book ‘The River War’ from 1899.

Churchill was right.

Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t have a problem and my party does not have a problem with Muslims as such. There are many moderate Muslims. The majority of Muslims are law-abiding citizens and want to live a peaceful life as you and I do. I know that. That is why I always make a clear distinction between the people, the Muslims, and the ideology, between Islam and Muslims. There are many moderate Muslims, but there is no such thing as a moderate Islam.

Islam strives for world domination. The Quran commands Muslims to exercise jihad. The Quran commands Muslims to establish shariah law. The Quran commands Muslims to impose Islam on the entire world.

As former Turkish Prime Minister Erbakan said: “The whole of Europe will become Islamic. We will conquer Rome”. End of quote.

Libyan dictator Gaddafi said: “There are tens of millions of Muslims in the European continent today and their number is on the increase. This is the clear indication that the European continent will be converted into Islam. Europe will one day soon be a Muslim continent”. End of quote. Indeed, for once in his life, Gaddafi was telling the truth. Because, remember: mass immigration and demographics is destiny!

Islam is merely not a religion, it is mainly a totalitarian ideology. Islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave. Shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a Islamic society. From civic- and family law to criminal law. It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

The Lion Wakes Up
Better late then never

I've asked before if there were any real men left in Europe. The English Defense League just answered my question.

And I couldn't help but notice besides the Cross of St. George, there's also the Welsh Dragon, the Star of David, the Dutch Tri-Color... and the Stars and Stripes.

Here's some of the posting from Atlas Shrugs; UK Violence Erupts: Fascists (UAF) and Muslims Descend on Patriots (EDL) and Police

They came to protest the encroaching oppressive sharia law and jihad -- peacefully. So of course the thugs and the sharia nazis had to show and turn it into a violent melee.

Thousands of fascist agitators descended upon a city centre protest organized by the patriotic English Defense League (EDL). The UAF -- Unite Against Fascism -- members got violent (as usual), and two officers were injured following ugly clashes: one fractured a finger, the other was bitten by a police dog. A police helicopter was also dispatched to assist the officers on the ground. There was a total of 67 arrests.
The Era of the Coward
It is a truly sad time in America and in the Roman Catholic Church. We are surrounded by evil and our outer most flanks are completely awash with cowards.
Archbishops begging followers to obey. Catholic politicians turning on their morals out of fear for losing political stature. People from all walks of life just handing over their birthright for false promises of security.
Especially at this time of Lent when we know that Jesus set the example by getting in the devil's face and telling him to get lost. We take that example and throw it away like a used pez dispenser. Nope we want the kingdom, we want the food, and we want to test God!
We are weak, and we can only gain strength through the sacraments and prayer. I am sorry to my fellow Church Militant and to God for not doing all I could to protect these souls which belong to God. I firmly resolve to correct my errors and to practice Faith, Hope, and Charity as I should. I especially promise to remain steadfast in my support of the Priesthood, and squashing the perversion of the faith from within.
Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa
JUDAS!
Marching towards Totalitarianism

So the government is going to take care of paying for health care insurance for certain people, thanks to the likes of sell-outs like Bart Stupak.

Does this mean the government will also start paying for automobile insurance? Home owners insurance? Life Insurance?

While we're at it, how about if the government starts taking care of groceries, fuel, mortgages, electricity, etc, etc.?

Isn't that called..... Communism? And that whore Stupak is going to 'take the word' of the most pro-abortion president ever?

And just wait and see just how many bishops follow Stupak's example.
"Non serviam!"
"I will not serve." - Lucifer

Here's most of the article from CathNewsUSA; All kneel together: Ottawa Archbishop

Ottawa Archbishop Terrence Prendergast has issued a letter asking all Catholics to conform in when they kneel during mass, but not everyone is happy.

Archbishop Prendergast's letter recently asks that everyone kneel for the entire Eucharistic prayer from "Holy, holy, holy" to the conclusion "Let us proclaim the mystery of faith" -- about five minutes in all, the Montreal Gazette reports.

Archbishop Prendergast said in his letter: "I have noted a wide range of practices ... which present a lack of harmony in a matter where we should be united -- the worship of God.

"I know that it may not be easy for some to accept. However, I am convinced its implementation will bring blessings to our archdiocese and I invite your co-operation with this directive." ("Invite". That means the faithful had the legitimate option of saying "no".)

In an interview later, he explained: "It's a sign of reverence. People say, 'I don't like that. We are the people set free, we no longer have to kneel to God,' and I said, 'Wait a minute, we do have to kneel to God. Christ knelt in the garden. People knelt before Jesus. Why can't we do that for a few minutes at mass?' " (This is so pathetic. A Catholic Archbishop has to plead with Catholics just to kneel for a few minutes? Disgusting.)

One woman told him her husband might not come to church because of this. "She said, 'we French Canadians have a bit of an inferiority complex. We don't like people telling us what to do'."

He replied that, if the husband does come, he is free to stand through the prayer, but at the back of the church, where he won't confuse everyone else.
(What's it going to be, Archbishop? Yes or no?)

Right now, the Catholic church is asking, "Is (the mass) our thing or is it God's thing? There are certain tensions in the church about that. (Well, if you're standing at the back of the church, then it must be "our thing"... with your blessing.)

"After 40 years since the Vatican Council, we have gotten away from certain aspects of reverence; we're trying to have more harmony and co-ordination. Harmony will help bolster a sense of divine worship, something that has slipped away.
(How about just being a strong leader?)
PASTORAL LETTER OF THE HOLY FATHER POPE BENEDICT XVI TO THE CATHOLICS OF IRELAND
And my take

Posted are excerpts of The Holy Father's letter, and my take on them. (Emphasis and comments mine)

Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Church in Ireland, it is with great concern that I write to you as Pastor of the universal Church. Like yourselves, I have been deeply disturbed by the information which has come to light regarding the abuse of children and vulnerable young people by members of the Church in Ireland, particularly by priests and religious. (ZING!) I can only share in the dismay and the sense of betrayal that so many of you have experienced on learning of these sinful and criminal acts and the way Church authorities in Ireland dealt with them. (Someones ass is going to jail.)

For my part, considering the gravity of these offences, and the often inadequate response to them on the part of the ecclesiastical authorities in your country (Yes, the Irish Bishops are part of the problem, not part of the solution), I have decided to write this Pastoral Letter to express my closeness to you and to propose a path of healing, renewal and reparation.

All too often, the sacramental and devotional practices that sustain faith and enable it to grow, such as frequent confession, daily prayer and annual retreats, were neglected (Otherwise known as the bastardized "Spirit" of Vatican II). Significant too was the tendency during this period, also on the part of priests and religious, to adopt ways of thinking and assessing secular realities without sufficient reference to the Gospel (See prior opinion). The programme of renewal proposed by the Second Vatican Council was sometimes misinterpreted and indeed, in the light of the profound social changes that were taking place, it was far from easy to know how best to implement it. In particular, there was a well-intentioned but misguided tendency to avoid penal approaches to canonically irregular situations. It is in this overall context that we must try to understand the disturbing problem of child sexual abuse, which has contributed in no small measure to the weakening of faith and the loss of respect for the Church and her teachings (Satan won this particular battle, and the Irish Bishops who were part and parcel to the rapings and molestations were his foot soldiers).

To priests and religious who have abused children

You betrayed the trust that was placed in you by innocent young people and their parents, and you must answer for it before Almighty God and before properly constituted tribunals (You may go to hell... you may go to jail. Either way, you brought this shit on yourself. Sucks to be you).

I urge you to examine your conscience, take responsibility for the sins you have committed, and humbly express your sorrow. Sincere repentance opens the door to God’s forgiveness and the grace of true amendment. By offering prayers and penances for those you have wronged, you should seek to atone personally for your actions. Christ’s redeeming sacrifice has the power to forgive even the gravest of sins, and to bring forth good from even the most terrible evil. At the same time, God’s justice summons us to give an account of our actions and to conceal nothing. Openly acknowledge your guilt, submit yourselves to the demands of justice, but do not despair of God’s mercy.

To my brother bishops

It cannot be denied that some of you and your predecessors failed, at times grievously, to apply the long-established norms of canon law to the crime of child abuse . Serious mistakes were made in responding to allegations. I recognize how difficult it was to grasp the extent and complexity of the problem, to obtain reliable information and to make the right decisions in the light of conflicting expert advice. Nevertheless, it must be admitted that grave errors of judgement were made and failures of leadership occurred ("Failures of leadership" The death knell of anyone in a leadership position). All this has seriously undermined your credibility and effectiveness. I appreciate the efforts you have made to remedy past mistakes and to guarantee that they do not happen again. Besides fully implementing the norms of canon law in addressing cases of child abuse, continue to cooperate with the civil authorities in their area of competence (There will be NO silent "thin black line... period!). Clearly, religious superiors should do likewise. They too have taken part in recent discussions here in Rome with a view to establishing a clear and consistent approach to these matters. It is imperative that the child safety norms of the Church in Ireland be continually revised and updated and that they be applied fully and impartially in conformity with canon law (Cromwell couldn't have done better).

Furthermore, having consulted and prayed about the matter, I intend to hold an Apostolic Visitation of certain dioceses in Ireland, as well as seminaries and religious congregations (There's a new sheriff in town). Arrangements for the Visitation, which is intended to assist the local Church on her path of renewal, will be made in cooperation with the competent offices of the Roman Curia and the Irish Episcopal Conference. The details will be announced in due course.
Time to be brutally honest here. Ireland is a particular (and long sought after) jewel in Lucifer's crown. The Ireland that was the cradle of vocations. The Ireland that sent literally thousands upon thousands of missionaries throughout the world to spread the Word of Christ. The Ireland that is but a speck of an island, but a power house when it comes to Catholicism -- Canada, the United States, Australia, Africa, etc, etc... Ireland is no longer a Catholic country, no matter how much spin you put on it.

The Irish have abandoned The Faith because The Faith abandoned them. Please refrain from telling me that "The Spirit" of Vatican II had nothing to do with it. Anyone who says that is lying to themselves.

Anyhow, Lucifer has a new gem in his crown. And it's emerald green.

What Side Is This Guy On?
Certainly not ours!

Here's some of the article from The Washington Times; Obama surrenders gulf oil to Moscow
The Russians are coming - to drill in our own backyard

The Obama administration is poised to ban offshore oil drilling on the outer continental shelf until 2012 or beyond. Meanwhile, Russia is making a bold strategic leap to begin drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico. While the United States attempts to shift gears to alternative fuels to battle the purported evils of carbon emissions, Russia will erect oil derricks off the Cuban coast.

Now Russia is using oil exploration to establish a new presence in the Western Hemisphere. It recently concluded four contracts securing oil-exploration rights in Cuba's economic zone in the Gulf of Mexico. A Russian-Cuban joint partnership will exploit oil found in the deep waters of the Gulf.
Who Needs Jack Chick When You Have The Archdiocese Of New York?
Catholic priests as the enemy

This is what your collection plate dollars are doing.

The floating angel says that a child and an adult shouldn't be alone in a room together. Does this include the Confessional? Well, seeing that many a Novus Ordo parish don't even have Confessionals, and more than a few of the kiddie-rapists preferred the Confessional for their raping... maybe what our lil' angel says is true.
Why Are Heretics Polluting Catholic Teachers?
Because Cardinal Mahony says so!

Here's the entire listing of speakers at the 2010 Archdiocese of Los Angeles Religious Education Conference currently underway.

Here's a thumbnail on some of the speakers, via SSA Catholic;
• Rev. Bryan Massingale. This Liberation Theologian from Marquette University publicly opposed Wisconsin’s 2006 Marriage Protection Amendment, which that state’s bishops backed, to ban “gay marriage” and “gay civil unions.” In 2004 he told fellow priests the “new Church” will be “more sensuous and feminine.” Also, he quoted Richard Schoenherr, who discerns a “decline in sacramentalism and rise in Bible-based worship” and a “change from a transcendentalist to a personalist construction of…sexuality.”

• Fr. James Martin, SJ. He told the 2005 REC we need “public models” of “healthy gay priests for Catholics to reflect on,” to counter “the stereotype of the gay priest as child abuser.” At the 2006 REC, he mocked and disputed the new Vatican document nixing ordination of homosexuals, saying it implied that they “are not fully human” and that “gay priests are responsible for the sexual abuse crisis.” “[Gay] seminarians and gay priests are the Church’s new lepers,” he whined, casting them as the victims.

Fr. Richard Rohr. At the March, 1997, pro-gay New Ways Ministry Symposium, he described his all-male retreats, in which men remove clothing and touch each other in “wounded areas,” as he calls them. Abp. Michael Sheehan of Santa Fe once reprimanded Fr. Rohr for presiding at a lesbian “wedding.” Also, Fr. Rohr advises Catholics to use the New Age/occult Enneagram.

Sr. Fran Ferder. She rejects the Church’s teaching against non-marital sex as a sign of Vatican fixation at an adolescent psychological level. In the Dec., 1995-Jan. 1996 Call to Action News, she said, “The whole Church must hear what [homosexuals] are really saying, especially those gays and lesbians who do not experience their sexuality as a lifelong commitment to celibacy.”

Fr. Michael Crosby. At the 2006 REC, this prominent Church-basher rapped “clericalism, sexism [sic] and heterosexism [sic]” and “unequal power…between homosexual and heterosexual people.” At a 1999 CTA conference, he knocked the Vatican for “dictating” to the local bishops.

Jim Wallis. This non-Catholic, far-left activist, who backed the Communists in Vietnam and founded the Post-American magazine (now Sojourners). In 2006 he advised U.S. senators and representatives on ways to get believers to vote Democrat, even though that party is pro-gay and proabortion.

Thomas Groome. This laicized priest from Boston College wants not only women priests but also women bishops. He mocked Pope John Paul II’s Ad Tuendam Fidem as “a pretentious attempt…to stifle conversation and dialogue” among theologians.

Dr. Greer Gordon. At the 2006 REC, she rapped the Vatican’s “assumption” that we must “curb the sexual urges or desires of our homosexual presbyters,” but not of our heterosexual priests. The new document against “gay” ordinations is good in parts, she said, but could “force us into repressing people about their sexuality.”
Kenneth M. Fisher, chairman of Concerned Roman Catholics of America, Inc. (CRCOA) has stated the following;
"He's [Mahony] going to make tens of thousands of Catholics hear Faith-subverters, the kind who get people to defy the Church on abortion, homosexuality, contraception, New Age practices and ordination of women."

"Cardinal Mahony's pro-gays, women-priest advocates, New Agers and anti-Pope rebels will tell Catholic educators what to teach. Then the teachers will go home and infect countless innocent Catholic children with those errors."
Think about this... Catholics who are loyal to Catholicism are kept outside, but those who are The Smoke of Satan incarnate are on the inside.

Catholics need to take their heads out of the sand, and start defending The Church.

Invoke St. Joseph For An Abortion Bill?
Sure... if you're one of the High Priestesses of The Patriotic American Catholic Church

That evil, evil woman is going to have a lot to answer for when she stands in front of The Lord. And so will those gutless clerics who twiddle their thumbs and look the other way while "Catholics" such as Nazi Pelosi bastardize Church Teaching.

After you view the Pelosi video, please, please, PLEASE view the video from RealCatholicTV. It's amazing how Voris put out his video a couple of days prior to Pelosi did.

Voris is simply prophetic.

Here's some of the article from the CatholicNewsAgency.com; (Emphasis mine) Confirmation of lesbian as Episcopal bishop causes regret in Canterbury

Los Angeles, Calif., Mar 18, 2010 / 11:34 pm (CNA).- On Wednesday, the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles reported the approval of the election of Mary Douglas Glasspool as their first openly partnered lesbian assistant bishop. The decision drew sharply contrasting reactions from those within the Episcopal community, including dissatisfaction from the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

“Unfortunately,” he [Bishop David C. Anderson, President and CEO of the American Anglican Council] continued, “this comes as no surprise because The Episcopal Church, at its General Convention this summer, voted in favor of allowing dioceses to determine whether they will conduct same sex blessings using whatever rites they deem appropriate. Even if The Episcopal Church should eventually decide to sign an Anglican Covenant, it has shown time and time again that it will not abide by traditional Christian and Anglican Communion teaching on marriage and sexuality.”

[Jeff] Walton [director of the Institute on Religion and Democracy's Anglican Action Program] also noted that “Glasspool's election and consecration comes at the same time as the Episcopal Church reports steep declines in attendance. Interestingly, the traditionalist Anglican Church in North America (AC-NA) has added 100 new congregations since July.”

Note: The Anglican Church in North America (AC-NA) is different from The Anglican Church in America (ACA). These are two totally different Communions.

The ACA is in the final stages of converting en mass to Catholicism... to include thousands of laity, their own bishops, clergy, buildings and even a cathedral.

God willing, the AC-NA will follow suit.
Two Totally Unrelated Articles
Or are they?

Here's some of the article from TheHill.com; (Emphasis mine)

Hispanic Dems will vote yes on healthcare

President Barack Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) secured a critical bloc of healthcare votes on Thursday when the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) announced its support.

Half a dozen members of the CHC held a news conference to announce their support. They were unhappy with language that barred illegal immigrants from accessing the public health insurance exchanges. More than a dozen had threatened to vote against the Senate bill and its companion reconciliation package. The House healthcare bill, which passed by two votes, won the support of every member of the Hispanic Caucus.
Then we have this... here's some of the article from CNS.com; (Emphasis mine)
Study finds Latinos who leave their churches are choosing no faith

WASHINGTON (CNS) -- A new analysis of religious identification data finds that contrary to popular belief, U.S. Latinos are not leaving behind Catholicism for Protestant churches, but instead are becoming more secularized, affiliating themselves with no faith at all.

A study released March 16 by the Institute for the Study of Secularism in Society and Culture at Trinity College, a secular liberal arts school in Hartford, Conn., reported that although Latinos remain predominantly Catholic, those who have left the church since 1990 have shifted more than expected toward secularism as they become more Americanized.
But does any of this really matter? Any "Catholic" politician who votes in favor of abortion receives Holy Communion anyways. Just ask Nazi Pelosi or any of the Kennedys.

The Patriotic American Catholic Church Saddles Up With The Party Of Death
And the polyester-clad lead the fight

60+ Poncho Ladies crossed the Styx... and they put it in writing. Ignoring the pro-abortion language in the ObaCare totalitarian take-over of our nation's health care system, the pantsuited stormtroopers of the Spirit of Vatican II New & Improved Catholic Church wade knee-deep into the blood of the innocents.

Here's the article from CatholicCulture.org;
Coalition of US nuns breaks with bishops, supports Senate health-care bill

A coalition of American nuns, claiming to represent over 50,000 members of women's religious orders, has broken with the country's Catholic bishops by coming out in support of the health-care reform legislation now pending in Congress.

In a statement released by the liberal religious lobby Network, the nuns say that the bill already approved by the Senate is "the real pro-life stance." Their statement accuses the US bishops' conference and pro-life groups of making "false claims" that the bill would allow support for abortion and would not protect the consciences of health-care workers who oppose abortion.

"This is politics; this isn't a question of faith and morals," said Sister Simone Campbell, the executive director of Network. Women religious have a direct interest in health-care reform, she added: "We are the ones who work every day with people who are suffering because they don't have health care."

Sound Off! Comments
Posted by: Minnesota Mary - Mar. 17, 2010 4:39 PM ET USA
I don't think the USCCB will be too upset with these "nuns." They are doing the heavy lifting of pushing through the socialized medicine that the bishops badly want but can't publicly support because of abortion coverage.
I tend to agree with Minnesota Mary. Prior to the Stupak language in this bill (amazin' huh?), the vast majority of bishops statements I read in regards to ObaCare were overwhelmingly in favor of such.

Nearly Half Of Doctors To Leave Medicine?
Not exactly a rousing endorsement of ObaCare

Look at these numbers carefully. They are shocking.

As I've said before, First you (not the government) get a job for yourself, then you (not the government) get health care for yourself. The only way it's the other way around is if you live in a Totalitarian state. Hmmm...

And speaking of ObamaCare, this dovetails nicely -- Why are so many "Catholic" organizations supporting abortion-providing-taxpayer-funded ObaCare?

Sean Penn: Payaso, Izquierdista Estupido
Posted by Van Helsing at March 15, 2010 9:14 AM

Being a useful idiot may earn scorn from all decent Americans, but it's not a totally thankless role. By endlessly praising socialist tyrant Hugo Chavez, going so far as to demand that his critics be imprisoned even outside Venezuela, Sean Penn has earned himself a doggie biscuit and pat on the head:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is grateful that actor Sean Penn has defended him against his critics within the U.S. media. In an appearance on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, Penn slammed Chavez critics who refer to the socialist leader as a dictator.

The Oscar-winning celebrity noted that Chavez has won repeated elections and suggested that media critics who call him a dictator should be jailed. … Penn has visited Chavez several times and frequently defends the president's leftist political policies.

Chavez welcomed Penn's comments Wednesday and thanked the actor for standing up to his detractors.

Others are less appreciative of Penn's efforts on behalf of tyranny — for example, Venezuelan immigrant Ozzie Guillen:

The outspoken White Sox manager called Penn a "payaso" (clown) and "izquierdista estupido" (stupid leftist) on Twitter Friday for his praise of controversial Venezuela President Hugo Chavez.

"Oh my God, Sean Penn defended our President Hugo Chavez," Guillen, a Venezuela native, tweeted. "That's easy when you [don't] live in Venezuela and have money. LOL…shame on [you]."
Unfortunately there is zero chance of any of Tinseltown's limousine Leninists relocating to one of the half-starved socialist dictatorships they extol. Why should they bother, when we're only an ObamaCare and Tax & Charade bill away from "fundamentally transforming" America into North Cuba?
