Peter Hitchens’s Idol

marco_basaiti_-_resurrection_of_christ_-_wga01398The Catholic Faith is true. Therefore there are no reasons to oppose it, only motivations. For most modern people, this is simply a matter of sexual sin, but sometimes it’s another idol.

In the case of Peter Hitchens, whose work I greatly admire – except when he clings to the Protestant Propaganda known as “English History” – I believe the Idol is Britain.

Why anyone would love Britain more than God is simply beyond me.

Even if it was worth the idolatry as it possibly was during the days of Empire, does anyone really think this can compare with GOD?

For various reasons, totally unconnected with this, or him personally, I had decided not to visit his blog any more. It’s very hard to stay away, to be honest, and I miss it. I may probably change my mind (I’m a woman, you know), but for now, I’m not going there. Consequently, I have no idea of the exact content of the recent article discussing the BBC programme Gunpowder, which I also have not seen. Therefore, I can’t say much about them, but although there may be problems with it, I think it’s probably good that the Britishpeople are finally forced to face up to the brutal history of England. Unfortunately, most of them are so stupid and godless, they will just moan about “sectarianism” blah blah.

Based on what others have said on Twitter (so I stand open to correction) Mr Hitchens has complained that the Catholic characters are good-looking and the Protestants are not. I can’t help sniggering a little.

One Guardian writer (I think) tweeted that she’s cross that PH is objecting to sexy Catholics. (I am 100% certain PH did not use that phrase, but it did make me laugh). Besides, we are sexy!

All modesty aside, the terribly disappointing thing is that it sounds like he still clings to the nonsense – and actual lies –  of the official history of England, and what a sad thing that is.

The man is a dear, but in this matter, he’s just plain wrong.

Saints Thomas More and John Fisher, pray for us.

Saint Margaret Clitherow, pray for us

Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.

Deliver Us From Evil

I don’t have much time for blogging, but I just want to note that I’m appalled by the abuse of people in general and specifically the sexual abuse (and rape) of children that has been committed by members of the Catholics Church, particularly the clergy, and fathers of families.

I would also like to point out that Pope Francis has continually kept Cardinal Daneels in leadership roles within the Church, even though he has allegedly been found to have covered up the sexual abuse of at least one boy. I can’t remember the details and don’t have time to research.

This is what happens when the Church’s enemies infiltrate it.

“Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.”

Our Lady of Good Success, pray for us.

McElroy, Cretin

I refuse to be nice towards the enemies of Christ and His Church. “They should be beaten with fists” – Pope SAINT Pius X.

Mcelroy

The Francis and Bishop McElroy

Bishop McElroy of San Diego is clearly a cretin who sides with the priest, Fr Martin SJ, who has The Francis’s backing in promoting *Buggery*.

MartinEthJay

Fr Martin SJ

This simple sentence tells you what’s what. The many clergy who hate God’s laws and love B u g g e r y (either doing it, or simply promoting it) are now openly declaring which side they are on, and it’s our job to oppose them with rhetorical fists, or at least mockery.

Bruvver Eccles has some mockery to offer.

Christopher Ferrara points out that faithful Catholics have borne “witness to Christ against the heretical filth Martin promotes with a sickly smile.” Here he starts to beat Fr Martin “like a rented mule”:

The arrogant and annoyingly prissy Father James Martin, SJ, a relentless promoter of sexual deviancy within the Church, must have thought it was nothing but clear sailing ahead for his subversive agenda, it being assisted by high-ranking members of the hierarchy, such as the cardinals who have praised his efforts. Now, however, Martin is having a hissy fit as his many friends rush to his defense following the cancellation of his speech at the prestigious Theological College of Catholic University of America due to “increasing negative feedback from various social media sites…”

These Cretins are Evil.

MuumuuChurch

I have had an absolute gutful. I went to our local parish today to meet up briefly with a friend so my daughter could go with them for the day. She helps them clean house once a month – a paid gig.

I still attend Mass at this parish at times, but more and more I try to get to the Latin Mass, which is 45 minutes away. Anyway, I thought it would be lovely to at least make a visit to the Blessed Sacrament, and then I remembered it would be Mass at noon, which is when we arrived. Normally this would be a delightful prospect, even with the difficulty I have sitting through the new Mass these days.

After all, Jesus is still there, and I want to spend time with him.

SacredHeart

If I had been by myself, I would have stayed for the whole Mass, but even before entering the Church, I decided we would only stay for a few minutes to pray. This is because I really don’t want my children to witness the new Mass shenanigans any more if possible. Even when it’s not too bad, it’s actually dire – because it is obvious that

the Mass should never have been changed!

For decades, the liturgical squabbles of the Church have annoyed me, and I will talk about that more another time if I have the chance. Anyway, I just have no more patience for this problem. the thing that was particularly annoying today was that the woman who was reading was wearing a muumuu and flip-flops. I’ve just had it! Yes, it could have been worse (a shorter muumuu, for instance). I don’t really judge the woman and am not actually angry with her, because she probably doesn’t know any better. I’m angry with The Cretins Who Run The Church. As Belloc says:

“the Catholic Church is an institution I am bound to hold divine, but for unbelievers, here is proof of its divinity, that no merely human institution run with such knavish imbecility would have lasted a fortnight.”

GrumpyFrancis

Judging by the evidence, I’d have to say that all our prelates are cretins. I can’t detect any exceptions. I don’t care if that sounds harsh and I do believe it’s accurate. I include Benedict, though it pains me. People are free to disagree, but that’s what I think.

I’ve had it with MuumuuChurch. I will just keep “Catholicking On” as best I can.

The UnPapacy

Yesterday on Twitter, someone said that Pope Francis is so UnPapal.

This is perfect! I mean, it’s a perfect description for such confusing times. Some Catholics are arguing cogently that he is an Antipope and that Benedict is still the reigning Pontiff. Other Catholics are arguing cogently that it’s not up to us to decide and that believing The Francis to be an Antipope produces big problems of its own. However, this speculation is fruitless.

Me? Either view could be correct as far as I can tell, but I have no desire to find myself on the wrong end of canon law. I just want to get to heaven. Is it too much to ask?

But, whether The Francis is Pope or not, he is UnPapal in his words and deeds, and I really think that anyone who thinks otherwise is deluded.

So, the UnPapacy is what I’m calling this… thing.

Also, I pray regularly – with fasting – for a full resolution to what I call (especially in my prayers) the “Dumb Bergoglio… Situation.”

Here is Christopher Ferrara in The Remnant:

What an affront this grandstanding, vulgar, insult-hurling Pope is to the memory of the great Roman Pontiffs who defended the truths of the Faith before a hostile world at the risk of their very lives. That he maintains a reputation for humility represents one of the must successful public relations fantasies in modern history, made possible only with the cooperation of the globe-spanning Fake News Industrial Complex

What does Bergoglio mean by a “rigid person”? Of course, he has made that quite clear with his endless stream of petty insults: an observant Catholic who thinks that the negative precepts of the natural law admit of no exceptions…

That Caesar too must render unto God the things that are God’s seems not to have occurred to Bergoglio. Given that the traditional teaching of the Church on the Social Kingship of Christ is decidedly not what Bergoglio thinks, he has excised it from his faux “magisterium” of interviews and airborne press conferences…

As readers are no doubt wondering: What is a Catholic to do in the face of the endless raving of this man, who admits in the same interview that in his forties he underwent psychoanalysis “with a Jewish psychoanalyst. For months I went to her house once a week to clear up some things”?

First of all, obviously, we must keep the Faith in spite of Bergoglio’s relentless attacks upon it

He must be confronted, day in and day out, by the orthodox Catholics he so clearly despises and seeks to ostracize with his cheap demagoguery…

The Chair of Peter is occupied by a man who appears to have been validly elected to the papacy, is universally recognized as a successor of Peter, and yet, de facto, is a kind of antipope in terms of his words and deeds. Worse, not even the literal antipopes of the past have uttered the falsehoods and inanities that flow from Bergoglio like a river from its source

What we are now witnessing is something other than mere sedevacantism. What exactly it is, only history will tell. But it is certainly something the Church has never seen before.

I hope for a dramatic intervention from Heaven. Indeed, this seems the only way out of this mess, so we must pray and fast. If it does not come in my lifetime, I pray I will always be a faithful Catholic regardless.

“Our help is in the name of the LORD Who made heaven and earth.”

Our Lady of Quito, pray for us.

Apocalypse Harvey

Hurricane, flooding, gales, tornadoes… fire ants… what’s not to love?

Our house did not flood, since we are not in a flood prone area and are a fair way north of the coast. Although I went to bed on Sunday night, thinking our lower floor, which is not much higher than street level, might flood. It didn’t, though the street was covered in water, as were the footpaths (sidewalks) and the rain came down all night.

Then I find out about this

When there is flooding along the Gulf Coast, there are fire ants. The invasive ants congregate into living rafts, drifting through water until they reach solid ground again. It’s a time-honed survival strategy.

But when there is Hurricane Harvey-level flooding, there are not just small rafts but huge, dense mats of fire ants.

Harvey is due to return tomorrow for another bout, this time mostly wind. Joy.

At our house, we’re all about safety
