The world in which we live is the victim of a variety of revolutions, starting with the Protestant Revolution that was unleashed by Father Martin Luther, O.S.A., when he post his ninety-five theses on the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, October 31, 1517.
As Pope Leo XIII noted in Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885, all of the errors of Modernity stem from the torrents of error that were unleashed as a result of the Protestant Revolution:
But that harmful and deplorable passion for innovation which was aroused in the sixteenth century threw first of all into confusion the Christian religion, and next, by natural sequence, invaded the precincts of philosophy, whence it spread amongst all classes of society. From this source, as from a fountain-head, burst forth all those later tenets of unbridled license which, in the midst of the terrible upheavals of the last century, were wildly conceived and boldly proclaimed as the principles and foundation of that new conception of law which was not merely previously unknown, but was at variance on many points with not only the Christian, but even the natural law. (Pope Leo XIII, Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885.)
The confusion that exists in the minds of most men in the world at this time has, of course, been exacerbated by the apostasies of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, which has made its "reconciliation" with the naturalistic, anti-Incarnational, religiously indifferentist and semi-Pelagian (the belief that human beings can more or less "save themselves" by "stirring up" graces in their own immortal souls) principles of Modernity. Long before conciliarism came to light at the "Second" Vatican Council, however, even the minds of many, if not most, Catholics were deformed as a result of living in a world of pluralism and unfettered "free speech" and "freedom of the press" and "freedom of religion," resulting in most of them accepting the premises of naturalism most uncritically as both natural and normal and as perfectly compatible with the truths of the Catholic Faith.
The French Revolution took the results of Martin Luther, John Calvin, Henry VIII, Thomas Cranmer, John Wesley, et al., to the next logical stage of degeneration: anti-Theistic naturalism, which emerged after the likes of John Locke, Thomas Hobbes, Adam Smith and others had championed various naturalistic approaches to the world while retaining a veneer of supposed religiosity. French naturalists who paved the way for the triumph of anti-Theism in the French Revolution of 1789 and its aftermath included the mocker named Francois-Marie Arouet, who wrote under the nom de plume of “Voltaire,” and the narcissist named Jean-Jacques Rousseau, who was held in particular esteem by the Jacobins during the 1790s.
The French Revolution infiltrated the minds of Catholics in France in many insidious ways. All that was associated with the glories of Catholic France had to be mocked as history books were rewritten to provided falsehoods about the “past.” Irreverence, mockery and blasphemy, although not unknown before the French Revolution, to be sure, became thoroughly ingrained in the fabric of French social life from 1789 to the present day. A “New France” emerged from the blood that was shed in the French Revolutions of 1789, 1830, 1848 and 1871, and it has no place for Christ the King or His Most Blessed Mother except scorn, revulsion and mockery.
As has been noted in so many other commentaries on this site, conciliarisim’s “official reconciliation” with the “principles of the new era that began in 1789” completed the work of the France’s Eighteenth Century “enlightenment” philosophes and revolutionaries to such an extent that the dogmatically corrupt and sacramentally barren liturgical rites of conciliarism that “official Catholicism” (conciliarism, that is) is dead in the land of Saint Hilary of Poitiers, Saint Genevieve, Saint Clotilde, Saint Remigius, Saint Louis IX, Saint Joan of Arc, Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, Saint Francis de Sales, Saint Vincent de Paul, Saint Louise de Marillac, Saint John Eudes, the North American Martyrs (Saints Isaac Jogues, Rene Goupil, Jean Lalonde, Jean de Breubeuf, Noel Chabanel, Charles Garnier, Gregory Lalemont and Anthony Daniel), Saint Catherine Laboure, Saint Bernadette Soubirous, Saint Benedict Joseph Labre, Saint Louis Grignion de Montfort, Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and Holy Face, Blessed Peter Julian Eymard, Blessed Claude de la Colombiere and, among so many others, Blessed Blanche of Castile. Mind you, this is not even to mention France’s protomartyr, Saint Denis, who was Italian, or Saint Martin of Tours, who was Hungarian.
A survey taken in 2012 demonstrates that the counterfeit church of conciliarism is dead in France, where most of its inhabitans are far removed from the practice of even the corrupt version of Catholicism that is taught and praticed in the counterfeit church of conciliarism and do not bother to show up at its Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service:
Among all baptized Catholics:
1961: 25% every Sunday, 13% "as much as possible", 36% sometimes, 26% never
2012: 5% every Sunday, 2% "as much as possible", 35% sometimes, 58% never
Regarding Mass attendance among baptized Catholics in 2012, by age group:
Age group 65 and above:
15% every Sunday, 4% "as much as possible", 35% sometimes, 46% never
Age group 50 to 64:
3% every Sunday, 3% "as much as possible", 38% sometimes, 56% never
Age group 35 to 49:
2% every Sunday, 1% "as much as possible", 37% sometimes, 60% never
Age group 25 to 34:
1% every Sunday, 1% "as much as possible", 33% sometimes, 65% never
Age group 18 to 24:
No figures (0%) for every Sunday, 2% "as much as possible", 19% sometimes, 79% never (Source: Kitchener Waterloo Traditional Catholic.)
The death in France of what passes for Catholicism under its conciliar auspices is particularly stark among those who are between 18-64, although it is not appreciably better among those who over sixty-four years of age. Revolutions have consequences, and the twin, inter-related revolutions of Modernity and Modernism have produced a world based on purely Judeo-Masonic, naturalistic principles of the sort of “solidarity” that has been preached by Giovanni Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul the Sick, Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II, Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict and Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis ever since the close of the “Second” Vatican Council on December 8, 1965, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Catholicism in France has been replaced by the paganism and barbarism that Saint Denis found upon his arrival there in the middle of the Third Century to attend to the needs of Catholics in Gaul and to convert the rest to the true Faith. Great Eucharistic Processions and Pilgrimages in honor of the Our Lady and Saint Joseph and Saints Denis, Eleutherius and Rusticus are bygone relics of the past, save for the annual Chartres pilgrimages that are conducted separately by the Society of Saint Pius X and French Catholics who are in “full, conscious and active communion” with Summorum Pontificum, which was issued by the supposedly “traditional” Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI on July 7, 2007, to “pacify” their “spirits” in order to induce silence from them in exchange for a place in conciliarism’s ever-shrinking “big tent.” Neo-pagan France has replaced those processions and pilgrimages with marches such as the one that took place in Paris on Sunday, January 11, 2015, the Feast of the Holy Family, to express “solidarity” with the professional mockers (and blasphemers of the true religion, by the way) at Charlie Hebdo who were murdered by faithful, believing Mohammedans on Thursday, January 8, 2015.
The march that took place four days ago now, however, featured world leaders who were marching for “freedom of speech” and “freedom of “press” even though they suppress such modern freedoms as they are exercised by Catholics who seek to defend the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law and/or who criticize the conciliar “popes” and their “bishops” (see the post in this regard on the Novus Ordo Watch Wire website, Germans Seek To Shut Down Kreuz.Net.)
Even though Pope Leo XIII taught in Libertas Praestantissimum, June 20, 1888, that Holy Mother Church tolerated modern “liberties in countries where her children were but a minority of the population so that they could avail themselves of them to practice and to propagate the Holy Faith, our situation today is far from one of toleration. The lords of Modernity and the lords of Modernism, ever the hypocrites that they are, know that there can be no room for true Catholicism in public life, which is why both work together all too frequently to silent and to stigmatize as “haters” those who seek to defend the primacy of God’s laws over men and their nations. Moreover, those who actually believe and profess publicly that all non-Catholics must convert to the true Faith must be denounced as “intolerant” and “anti-Semitic” by those who boast of their “tolerance” while seeking to crush anyone who dares to contradict them. (See, for example, Chopped Liver No More and Chopped Liver No More Update.)
The hypocrisy is such that the mainslime media, which made much of the large number of people who turned out in Paris and elsewhere in France on the Feast of the Holy Family, will bury all mention of the annual March for Life in Washington, District of Columbia, next Thursday, January 22, 2015, the forty-second anniversary of the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton that decriminalized the killing of innocent preborn babies up to and including the day of birth. The little coverage that the March for Life will receive, of course, will be pejorative.
Daily terrorism against the innocent preborn under cover of the civil law in Western nations and against the brain-damaged, the chronically and terminally-ill and anyone else who is said to be “brain dead.” (See ObamaDeathCare.) This terrorism is supported by each of the “world leaders” who marched in Paris on Sunday, January 11, 2015, with the possible exception of Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority. Thus it is that, noting that singular possible exception, those who marched in “solidarity” with Charlie Hebdo and against “terrorism” have the blood of the innocent dripping on their hands.
Perhaps most notably, of course, the “world leader” who has the blood of innocent Palestinians and others on his hands, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, also presided over the passage of what amounts to state-funded baby-killing on demand in the Zionist State of Israel:
Israel, a nation with a forceful religious lobby and a conservative prime minister, is poised to offer its female citizens some of the most liberal abortion coverage in the world.
Israel has always had a liberal stance on abortion, allowing women facing medical emergencies or those who are victims of rape or abuse to receive subsidies to help them terminate their pregnancies. Outside of those regulations, women can apply for abortions for reasons ranging from an emotional or mental threat caused by the pregnancy or for not being married to the baby’s father. All women who seek to end a pregnancy must appear before a three-member committee to state their case, but 98 percent of requests are approved. Women under the age of 20 or over the age of 40 were also previously eligible for subsidized abortions, regardless of the reason.
With the newly amended health care package, however, funding will now be available for more than 6,000 additional women seeking to terminate their pregnancies, at the cost at some NIS 16 million ($4.6 million). No medical reason for the abortion is required.
Halevy, director general of Shaare Tzedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, rejects the idea that the health commission’s move is in any way radical, and is quick to point out that the boost in abortion funding is but one small piece of several alterations to Israel’s state-sponsored health care, ranging from mental health care to the treatment of diabetes and beyond.
“We want large families in Israel. We definitely encourage birth,” he says. “But when pregnancy occurs and it is undesired or inadvertent, I think we should supply the means to end the pregnancy properly." (Israel's Abortion Law Now Among World's Most Liberal.)
It is truly a shame that the reigning Abortion King of the World, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, skipped the big “Je suis Charlie!” rally in France four days ago as he would have been right at home with his fellow statists, pro-aborts and pro-perverts.
Ah, Obama/Soetoro, who froths at the mouth in situations such as the killings of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner, has gone to great lengths to demonstrate his “sensitivity” (read: obsequiousness) to the feelings of Mohammedans. He is a perfect secular match for Senor Sensitivity himself, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, whose own utter obsequiousness will be the subject of commentary in but a jiffy, which was defined by Oliver Norvell Hardy in Block-Heads as being “three shakes of a dead lamb’s tail.”
The administration of Obama/Soetoro refuses even to blame the mythical entity of “radical Islam” as bearing any responsibility for what happened in France or what has happened elsewhere in the world, including right here in the United States of America. The current administration has gone to great pains to avoid describing the group of faithful, believing Mohammedans in Nigeria, Boko Haram, that is kidnapping, assaulting and murdering Christians as the tenets of its false religion teach them to do as a Mohammedan terror cell. Our reigning caesar and his equally racialist attorney general, Eric Holder, never refer to the persecution and execution of Christians by Mohammedans as they believing that they can alter the public’s perception of reality by refusing to call evil by its proper name.
Officials in the Obama administration refused at first to term Major Nidal Malik Hasan, M.D., U.S.A., who shot forty-three people and killed thirteen of these people at Fort Hood, Texas, on Thursday, November 5, 2009, as a Mohammedan terrorist (see Killing In The Name of The Religion of Peace). It was only much later that the officials of the current presidential administration used the word "terrorism" to refer to Nidal's killing spree even though he was in contact with an American born jihadist, Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in an American drone attack in Yemen on September 30, 2011, who had urged his followers to kill Americans. Officials of the United States Army and in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) knew of this connection in advance of the Nidal Malik Hasan's shootings and did nothing as they did not consider him a threat. (See U.S. Knew of Fort Hood Suspect’s Tie to Radical Cleric )
“Lone Wolf” Mohammedan attacks, such as those that occurred on two police officers in Jamaica, Queens, New York, on Friday, October 24, 2014, the Feast of Saint Raphael the Archangel, are described variously as “unrelated” to Mohammedanism or the work of “deranged” individuals.
Similarly, the threat of a Mohammedan man, Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, to behead a former coworker at a nursing home in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was termed a "bizarre coincidence" in a report published in The Oklahoman newspaper even though Muriithi said that it was his duty as a Mohammedan to behead Christians the day after another Mohammedan man, Alton Alexander Nolen, had actually beheaded a coworker at a good processing plant, Vaughan Foods, in the same city on Thursday, September 26, 2014 (see Alton Nolen Allegedly Beheads Oklahoma
In a bizarre coincidence, a fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested Friday after a co-worker reported he threatened to cut her head off.
Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a terrorism complaint. His bail is set at $1 million.
“We take these threats very seriously,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said.
The arrest came on the same day police in Moore revealed fired Vaughan Foods worker Alton Alexander Nolen beheaded a co-worker after he was fired Thursday. Nolen is a Muslim convert.
Muriithi was identified as a native of Kenya who is living in Oklahoma City. He worked at Bellevue Nursing Home in northwest Oklahoma City, police reported.
The co-worker reported Muriithi threatened her while they were both working at the nursing home Sept. 13, a police detective wrote in an arrest warrant affidavit.
The woman was not identified.
She said Muriithi identified himself as a Muslim and said he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians,” the detective told a judge in the affidavit. The two had not worked together before.
ISIS is a reference to Islamic State militants responsible for highly publicized beheadings in the Middle East. (Fired Oklahoma City nursing home worker
Every effort must be made by the lords of Modernity in the world and the lords of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism to indemnify violence that is part and parcel of a false religion, Mohammedanism, while those who oppose the prevailing moral evils of the day must be reviled, if not prosecuted, as “haters” who must be considered as possible sources of “domestic terrorism, something that, as noted in part one of this commentary, the United States Department of Homeland Security attempted to do six years ago now and that the now former Mayor of the City of New York, New York, Michael Rubens Bloomberg, actually said out loud following in the wake of the attempting car bombing in Times Square in the Borough of Manhattan in May of 2010:
CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric asked New York's Mayor Mike Bloomberg if the bombing attempt could be a precursor to a bigger attack.
"There is no credible evidence so far that this attack was more than at least one person, the driver," said Mayor Mike Bloomberg. "After that there is no evidence that anyone else was involved. It may be, but we can't say that it is."
"There is some speculation that the materials in the Nissan Pathfinder were similar to ones that were found to some failed attacks in the U.K.," Couric asked.
"There's a limited number of things you would need," Bloomberg said. "You'd need a timer, you'd need a battery as an energy source you'd need some explosive and you'd need something to enhance it. That's going to be true no matter where or when the...another attack took place. So, anything would have enough commonalities for the conspiracy theorists to blow it up if you don't mind the pun and make something out of it."
"Are you concerned about the impact this might have on tourism?" Couric asked.
"I think people today understand we live in a dangerous world," Bloomberg said. "And you can't let the terrorists win by locking yourself in a room. What I can guarantee you is we're doing everything that we can. Whether or not we will have somebody in exactly the right place at exactly the right time to prevent something down the future nobody can do that - nobody can guarantee you."
"But there is no evidence here of a conspiracy. There is no evidence that it's tied in to anything else. It looks like an amateurish job, done by at least one person," Bloomberg added.
But if another attack were to occur, Mayor Bloomberg and the heads of all emergency response agencies would be in the city's situation room. It's powered by its own generator and allows the team to monitor video feeds, television coverage - even the corner of 45th and Seventh Avenue, where a crisis was averted.
Law enforcement officials don't know who left the Nissan Pathfinder behind, but at this point the Mayor believes the suspect acted alone.
"If I had to guess, twenty five cents, this would be exactly that," Bloomberg said. "Homegrown maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything." (Bloomberg: "No Evidence" Anyone Else Involved - CBS Evening.)
Michael Bloomberg is a reprobate. He is always eager to disparage those in the "religious right" for the nation's problems, including, a la United States Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the belief that there is a growing danger of "homegrown," "domestic" terrorism from those who criticize "the government." (See All Hail! Caesar Obamus.) Bloomberg and Obama are both spineless, gutless cowards who speak out exclusively in behalf of abject moral evils and in favor of a radical form of social engineering designed to curb legitimate human freedoms.
The truth is, of course, that the would-be Times Square bomber, Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized citizen of the United States of America who was born in Pakistan, which has become a key base of operations for the Taliban, was indeed a Mohammedan and was intent on carrying out the desires of the Pakistani-based Taliban, something that the Obama/Soetoro administration later had to admit, albeit quietly and not at the presidential level. All this to avoid the use of the words "Islamic terrorism."
This calls to mind the prophetic insight of Dr. Aleskandr I. Solzhenitsyn on the paralysis of reason and action caused by political correctness:
A decline in courage may be the most striking feature which an outside observer notices in the West in our days. The Western world has lost its civil courage, both as a whole and separately, in each country, each government, each political party and of course in the United Nations. Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable among the ruling groups and the intellectual elite, causing an impression of loss of courage by the entire society. Of course there are many courageous individuals but they have no determining influence on public life. Political and intellectual bureaucrats show depression, passivity and perplexity in their actions and in their statements and even more so in theoretical reflections to explain how realistic, reasonable as well as intellectually and even morally warranted it is to base state policies on weakness and cowardice. And decline in courage is ironically emphasized by occasional explosions of anger and inflexibility on the part of the same bureaucrats when dealing with weak governments and weak countries, not supported by anyone, or with currents which cannot offer any resistance. But they get tongue-tied and paralyzed when they deal with powerful governments and threatening forces, with aggressors and international terrorists.
Should one point out that from ancient times decline in courage has been considered the beginning of the end? (A World Split Apart, Harvard University Commencement Address, Cambridge, Massachusetts, June 6, 1978.)
Although Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was referring the James Earl Carter, Jr. (see Ever the Appeaser, written in 2002), his trenchant remarks apply just as much to Barack Hussein Obama and to his equally tongue-tied predecessor, George Walker Bush, when it comes to understanding that it is not "radical Islamists" that are perpetrating attacks on American citizens abroad and have done so here at home. It is faithful, believing Mohammedans who are doing so. Mohammedanism is of its very demonic nature a religion of violence and bloodshed.
Go tell that to the tongue-tied and paralyzed staff at the American Embassy in Cairo, Egypt, who were responsible for issuing this horrific statement as the embassy was under siege by a not-so-spontaneous Mohammedan uprising that had been planned for twelve days to coincide with the eleventh anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks here in the United States of America:
"The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims -- as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions."
"Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others." (Press Release - Embassy of the United States in Cairo, Egypt.)
In other words, "Please, pretty please, do not blame the government of the United States of American that an Israeli citizen by the name of Sam Bacile, who lives in southern California, raised five million dollars to promote a film that you find "insulting" to your false, blasphemous "prophet," Mohammed. We understand your anger. Don't hurt us. We're on your side. We're on the side of the Arab Spring. We know that Mohammedanism is a 'revealed religion' and we respect your beliefs more than we respect those of any other religion, including the hate-mongers who call themselves Christians whom you have rightly attacked here in Egypt. Just leave us alone. Put up your black flag. Just take your stones and leave us alone."
Those attacks, of course, on the same day that a well-planned terrorist attack that had nothing to do with the “insulting” video produced by Sam Bacile was launched on the American compound in Benghazi, Libya, resulting in the horrific killings of four Americans, including Christopher Stevens, the United States Ambassador to Libya. As is well known, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Susan Rice, then the United States Ambassador to the United Nations and now the National Security Adviser, each blamed a “spontaneous” demonstration against the video for what was a well-planned, well-organized and well-financed attack upon American citizens that was timed to take place on the eleventh anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks here in the United States of America.
Following the example of the “neoconservative” war hawks in the administration of President George Walker Bush and Vice President Richard Bruce Cheney, the current administration of globalists and statists downgrades any and all Mohammedan attacks on Christians in Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Egypt or elsewhere in the world. Attacks upon Christians do not matter as the real doctrines of the supposed “religion of peace” must be deconstructed in order to avoid any and all criticism of them, no less any serious discussion of the violence engendered by the blasphemer named Mohammed (see Mohammed, the First Radical Muslim.)
Moreover, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, in perfect continuity with “Bush “43” has presided over policies in each of the armed services of the United States of America to eradicate the Holy Name of Jesus from public utterance and to prevent criticism of abortion and perversity. Similar policies predominate throughout the Federal government of the United States of America and at the state and local levels, including the concentration camps called “public schools.” “Sensitivity” must be shown to public sinners and to Mohammedans and Jews. Any insult at all, however, call be hurled at Christ the King, His Most Blessed Mother, Saint Joseph and the Catholic Church.
In this regard, of course, it must be remembered that Obama/Soetoro himself demanded that all signage of the “IHS” monogram of the Holy Name of Jesus was to be removed from Gaston Hall at Georgetown University where he spoke on April 15, 2009 (see Georgetown Says It Covered Over Name of Jesus, White House, Georgetown Say Covering Over Name of Jesus Was Unintended Consequence of Desire to Have Backdrop for Flags, Georgetown Did Not Cover Over Name of Jesus When First Lady Laura Bush Spoke). So much for the monogram of the Holy Name of Jesus that was popularized by Saint Vincent Ferrer, O.P., the zealous Dominican friar who converted thousands upon thousands of Jews and Mohammedans in the Iberian Peninsula and southern France at the end of the Thirteenth and the beginning of the Fourteenth Centuries, and by Saint Bernardine of Siena, the great apostle of the Holy Name of Jesus, prior to its being adopted as the monogram of the Society of Jesus by Saint Ignatius of Loyola.
Then again, catering to the “sensibilities” of those who deny the Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ—be they Talmudists, Mohammedans, Buddhists, Hindus or other pagans—one of the chief triumphs of the anti-Incarnational ethos of Judeo-Masonry that is such a foundational element of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. How can the lords of Modernity be faulted for demanding silence about the Holy Name of Jesus as they remain silent in face of attacks upon Catholics and other Christians by Mohammedans, Buddhists, Hindus and Talmudists?
Remember, Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II removed a Crucifix from the Paul VI Audience Hall in Vatican City on April 7, 1994 on the occasion of a "Holocaust" remembrance concert, "the first time the Chief Rabbi of Rome was invited to co-officiate at a public function in the Vatican, the first time a Jewish cantor sang at the Vatican, and the first time the Vatican choir sang a Hebrew text in performance" (The Vatican, the Holocaust, and the Jews: 1945-2000, a Talmudic source for this; see also: CHRONICLE - The New York Times and YOM HASHOAH, another Talmudic source for the "concert").
Wojtyla/John Paul II also intervened personally in 1998 when Talmudists expressed their opposition to a large cross that had been erected by Carmelite sisters in Poland near the Auschwitz concentration camp and death center where Father Maximilian Kolbe, the great apostle of the City of Mary Immaculate, was put to death. The Polish “pope” requested that the Carmelite nuns remove the large cross because the Talmudists were “offended” by it. So what? Catholics are never afraid to lift high the standard of the Holy Cross. Then again, the conciliar “popes” had expelled themselves from the Catholic Faith long before their apparent “elections.”
Following the example of “Saint John Paul II,” Jorge Mario Bergoglio, hid his pectoral cross behind his fascia (white sash) when when meeting with two Talmudic rabbis in Jerusalem on Monday, May 26, 2014, the Feast of Saint Philip Neri and the Commemoration of Pope Saint Eleutherius:
Bergoglio his pectoral cross again when he wore "uttariya shawl which was a gift from Sri Lankan Hindu priest Kurukkal SivaSri T Mahadevasome on Tuesday, January 13, 2015, the Octave Day of the Epiphany of Our Lord, during his address to leaders of other false religions in Colombo, Sri Lanka (see Deja Vu In Sri Lanka):
As the post on Call Me Jorge on which the photograph above may be found, Bergoglio also paid an impromptu visit to a Buddhist temple on the way back from a Marian shrine in Sri Lanka. So much idolatry, so little time.
Bergoglio is so sensitive to the false beliefs of pagans that he is willing to do that which the Apostles and millions of martyrs gave up their lives than to give the appearance of doing, namely, denying the Holy Name of the Divine Redeemer before men. Bergoglio is truly ashamed of Christ and His doctrine before men:
For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For he that shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation: the Son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. (Mark 8: 36-28)
And calling in the apostles, after they had scourged them, they charged them that they should not speak at all in the name of Jesus; and they dismissed them.
And they indeed went from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were accounted worthy to suffer reproach for the name of Jesus. And every day they ceased not in the temple, and from house to house, to teach and preach Christ Jesus. (Acts 5: 40-42.)
If any man speak, let him speak, as the words of God. If any man minister, let him do it, as of the power, which God administereth: that in all things God may be honoured through Jesus Christ: to whom is glory and empire for ever and ever. Amen. Dearly beloved, think not strange the burning heat which is to try you, as if some new thing happened to you; But if you partake of the sufferings of Christ, rejoice that when his glory shall be revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. If you be reproached for the name of Christ, you shall be blessed: for that which is of the honour, glory, and power of God, and that which is his Spirit, resteth upon you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or a railer, or a coveter of other men's things.
But if as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. For the time is, that judgment should begin at the house of God. And if first at us, what shall be the end of them that believe not the gospel of God? And if the just man shall scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them also that suffer according to the will of God, commend their souls in good deeds to the faithful Creator. (1 Peter 4: 11-19)
As the conciliar popes, including Bergoglio, have demonstrated so amply, idolatry in the name of “respecting” religious traditions is a well-enshrined principle of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. There is, of course, an exception to this. The conciliar officials do not respect the religious traditions of Catholicism.
Bergoglio himself demonstrated this yesterday, Thursday, January 15, 2015, during his latest interview by more or less stating that those who were murdered at Charlie Hebdo should have expected to have gotten “punched” for having been so disrespectful of Mohammedan beliefs, although the false "pontiff" said that it was wrong for anyone to "kill in the name of God," heedless to the fact that killing infidels is part of Mohammed's false religion (see
Maillard: Holy Father, yesterday at mass you spoke about religious freedom as a fundamental human right. But in the respect for the different religions, up to what point can one go in freedom of expression? That too is a fundamental human right.
Pope. Thanks for the question, it’s an intelligent one. I believe that both are fundamental human rights, religious liberty and liberty of expression. One cannot -- but let’s think -- you are French? Let’s go to Paris, let’s speak clearly. One cannot hide a truth: everyone has the right to practice one’s religion, one’s own religion without giving offence. Freely. That’s how we do it, we want everyone to do that. Second: One cannot offend, make war, kill in the name of one’s own religion, that is, in the name of God. To us, that which happens now, it stuns us. But let’s think about our own history: how many wars of religion have we had? You may think of the night of St. Bartholomew; how can this be understood? We too were sinners in this. But one cannot kill in the name of God. This is an aberration. To kill in the name of God is an aberration. I believe that this is the principal point in terms of religious liberty. One has freedom in this, but without imposing or killing in the name of religion.
As for freedom of expression: each one not only has the freedom, the right but also the obligation to say what one thinks to help the common good. The obligation! Let’s think, if a member of parliament or a senator doesn’t say what he thinks is the right path then he does not collaborate for the common good. Not only these, but many others too. We have the obligation to say openly, to have this liberty, but without giving offence, because it is true, one cannot react violently. But if Dr. Gasbarri (the papal trip organizer who was standing beside him), a good friend, says a bad word against my mother, then a punch awaits him. But it’s normal, it’s normal. One cannot provoke, one cannot insult other people’s faith, one cannot make fun of faith. Pope Benedict in a speech, I don’t remember exactly where, he spoke of this post-positivist mentality, of post-positivist metaphysics, that led to the belief that in the end religions, religious expressions, are a kind of subculture, which are tolerated but are of little value, are not on the Enlightenment culture. And this is part of the heritage of the Enlightenment. And so many people who speak badly about other religions, or religions [in general], they make fun of, let’s say toy with [make into toys] other people’s religions, these people provoke and there can occur what would happen to Dr. Gasbarri if he said something against my mother. That is, there is a limit. Every religion has dignity; every religion that respects life, human life, the human person. And I cannot make fun of it. This is a limit and I have taken this sense of limit to say that in freedom of expression there are limits, like that in regard to my mother. I don’t know if I have managed to answer the question. (Jorge says there are limits to freedom of expression.)
As a Modernist, Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s false religion is based on emotion, feeling, sentimentality and human respect. All religious belief must be “respected” not because they are revealed by God, but because they contain what is considered to be a “spark” of divine origin dwelling upon from within the inmost being of human beings.
Catholics respect the persons of heretics and infidels. We pray for the conversion of all non-Catholics to the true Faith as we recognize that outside of the Catholic Church there is no salvation.
Addressing himself to Protestants a year before the beginning of the [First] Vatican Council, Pope Pius IX exhorted non-Catholic Christians to leave their haze of errors that could never assure them of their salvation:
It is for this reason that so many who do not share ‘the communion and the truth of the Catholic Church’ must make use of the occasion of the Council, by the means of the Catholic Church, which received in Her bosom their ancestors, proposes [further] demonstration of profound unity and of firm vital force; hear the requirements [demands] of her heart, they must engage themselves to leave this state that does not guarantee for them the security of salvation. She does not hesitate to raise to the Lord of mercy most fervent prayers to tear down of the walls of division, to dissipate the haze of errors, and lead them back within holy Mother Church, where their Ancestors found salutary pastures of life; where, in an exclusive way, is conserved and transmitted whole the doctrine of Jesus Christ and wherein is dispensed the mysteries of heavenly grace. (Pope Pius IX, Iam Vos Omnes, September 13, 1868.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio respects all religious errors as he is steeped in the Modernist error that there is no such thing as religious error except on the part of “inflexible,” “dogmatic” Catholics. This is what leads him to have a warped, shallow view of history that is something along the lines of Mel Brooks’s History of the World (which I have never seen or have any intention of seeing) by which complex events laden with political intrigue such as the Saint Bartholomew Day Massacre in 1572, which had not been sanctioned by Pope Gregory XIII, who recoiled in horror when he learned two months later of the full details of what had happened, can be equated with just wars such as the Crusades that were fought in the name of the true God of Divine Revelation in defense of the persecuted Catholics and the desecration of sacred places in the Holy Land at the hands of Mohammedans. (This will be the subject of the next article on this site.)
Furthermore, while Jorge Mario Bergoglio accidentally stumped upon an “element of truth” when he stated that freedom of speech has limits, his application of these limits is based upon a complete misunderstanding of what constitutes those limits. To criticize, disparage or even mock a false religion is our duty before the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity, as it is not true that “every religion has dignity; every religion that respects life, human life, the human person.”
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, the very Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity made Incarnate in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of His Most Blessed Mother by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, does not teach us that ‘every religion has dignity.” Only one religion is true, Catholicism. Everything else is from the devil and is based on a denial of the Sacred Deposit of Faith that Our Lord entrusted exclusively to His Catholic Church for Its infallible explication and eternal safekeeping in whole or in part.
Pope Leo XIII, warning Italians about the truth of Freemasonry in their country, explained:
Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions, and the craving to reconcile the maxims of the Gospel with those of the revolution. These men seek to reconcile Christ and Belial, the Church of God and the state without God. (Pope Leo XIII, Custodi Di Quella Fede, December 8, 1892.)
For Jorge Mario Bergoglio, however, his understanding of “religion” is purely experiential, and he “experienced” ecumenism when he was a child as his grandmother taught him to respect the work of the “Salvation Army” while scoffing at the Catholic doctrine of extra ecclesia nulla salus, something that he reiterated in his interview yesterday:
As far as [Buddhists] going to Hell …but also the Protestants when I was a child, in that time, 70 years ago, all the Protestants were going to hell, all of them. That’s what was said. Do you know what was my first experience of ecumenism? I told it recently when I met a group from the Salvation Army. When I was four or five years old walking down the street with my grandmother, I saw two women from the Salvation Army, wearing those old-style hats, and I asked my grandmother, “Tell me, are they sisters (nuns)?” My Grandmother said “No, they are Protestant but they’re good (people).” It was the first time that I heard a person speaking well of people of another religion. At that time in the catechesis they told us that they (the others) all went to hell. I believe the church has grown a lot in its consciousness (understanding) and in its respect (for other religions), as I said in the interreligious encounter in Colombo the other day, when we read what the Second Vatican Council about the other religions, and the values in other religions. The Church has grown a lot in these years and in respect. There have been dark periods in the history of the Church too, and we have to say that with shame. We’re all on a path of conversion, which is a grace; always from sin to grace. This inter-religiosity as brothers, respecting each other always is a grace. (Jorge says there are limits to freedom of expression.)
All of his protestations to the contrary notwithstanding, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a mocker and blasphemer just as much as were those killed in the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, France, on January 8, 2015.
Holy Mother Church has always enjoyed a Perpetual Immunity of the Church from Error and Heresy.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s speaking about “dark periods in the history of the Church” makes him one of the best recruiting officers for the distorted history that has been taught in public schools, colleges and universities that the world has ever seen. He is a prisoner of dogmatic and historical falsehoods.
Although I commented on Boy Jorge’s learning about false ecumenism at the knees of his grandmother in Soldiers in The Damnation Army last month, suffice it to say for present purposes that this sad, sad man has no use for Catholic doctrine that contradicts his own personal experiences, including Cantate Domino, February 4, 1442:
It firmly believes, professes, and proclaims that those not living within the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews and heretics and schismatics cannot become participants in eternal life, but will depart “into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels” [Matt. 25:41], unless before the end of life the same have been added to the flock; and that the unity of the ecclesiastical body is so strong that only to those remaining in it are the sacraments of the Church of benefit for salvation, and do fastings, almsgiving, and other functions of piety and exercises of Christian service produce eternal reward, and that no one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has remained in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church. (Pope Eugene IV, Cantate Domino, Council of Florence, February 4, 1442.)
If we lived in a Catholic world, which we do not, anyone who spoke publicly as Jorge Mario Bergoglio does and his predecessor have done would be punished by the civil authorities as there is no freedom of speech or freedom of the press before God to preach heresy and to speak in blasphemous ways.
As it is, though, the Judeo-Masonry’s potpourri of civil freedoms has resulted in what Pope Gregory XVI and his successor, Pope Pius IX, recognized would be the triumph of insanity and error under the cloak of “liberty of conscience,” something that would bring ruin down upon men and their nations:
“This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. “But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error,” as Augustine was wont to say. When all restraints are removed by which men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly “the bottomless pit” is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things and holy laws — in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire for novelty. (Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832.)
For you well know, venerable brethren, that at this time men are found not a few who, applying to civil society the impious and absurd principle of “naturalism,” as they call it, dare to teach that “the best constitution of public society and (also) civil progress altogether require that human society be conducted and governed without regard being had to religion any more than if it did not exist; or, at least, without any distinction being made between the true religion and false ones.” And, against the doctrine of Scripture, of the Church, and of the Holy Fathers, they do not hesitate to assert that “that is the best condition of civil society, in which no duty is recognized, as attached to the civil power, of restraining by enacted penalties, offenders against the Catholic religion, except so far as public peace may require.” From which totally false idea of social government they do not fear to foster that erroneous opinion, most fatal in its effects on the Catholic Church and the salvation of souls, called by Our Predecessor, Gregory XVI, an “insanity,” viz., that “liberty of conscience and worship is each man’s personal right, which ought to be legally proclaimed and asserted in every rightly constituted society; and that a right resides in the citizens to an absolute liberty, which should be restrained by no authority whether ecclesiastical or civil, whereby they may be able openly and publicly to manifest and declare any of their ideas whatever, either by word of mouth, by the press, or in any other way.” But, while they rashly affirm this, they do not think and consider that they are preaching “liberty of perdition;” and that “if human arguments are always allowed free room for discussion, there will never be wanting men who will dare to resist truth, and to trust in the flowing speech of human wisdom; whereas we know, from the very teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ, how carefully Christian faith and wisdom should avoid this most injurious babbling.”
And, since where religion has been removed from civil society, and the doctrine and authority of divine revelation repudiated, the genuine notion itself of justice and human right is darkened and lost, and the place of true justice and legitimate right is supplied by material force, thence it appears why it is that some, utterly neglecting and disregarding the surest principles of sound reason, dare to proclaim that “the people’s will, manifested by what is called public opinion or in some other way, constitutes a supreme law, free from all divine and human control; and that in the political order accomplished facts, from the very circumstance that they are accomplished, have the force of right.” But who, does not see and clearly perceive that human society, when set loose from the bonds of religion and true justice, can have, in truth, no other end than the purpose of obtaining and amassing wealth, and that (society under such circumstances) follows no other law in its actions, except the unchastened desire of ministering to its own pleasure and interests?” (Pope Pius IX, Quanta Cura, December 8, 1864.)
The lords of Modernity who have come to power as a result of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry have created a true secular church from which there can be dissent. That is, it is to be accepted without question that modern “freedoms” represent “progress,” thus making those who criticize them in principle while using them as they believe possible in today’s circumstances to defend Catholic doctrine to be “dangerous” to “peaceful coexistence.” Those of us who are “heretics” from the civil religion must be silenced and harassed into submission lest sterner measures be taken to avoid offending those who feel free to offend Christ the King, His Most Blessed Mother and His true Church.
The lords of Modernism have enabled the lords of Modernity this regard to such an extent as to call to mind once again these words of Pope Saint Pius X:
And now, overwhelmed with the deepest sadness, We ask Ourselves, Venerable Brethren, what has become of the Catholicism of the Sillon? Alas! this organization which formerly afforded such promising expectations, this limpid and impetuous stream, has been harnessed in its course by the modern enemies of the Church, and is now no more than a miserable affluent of the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Live by modern “freedoms,” die by modern “freedoms,” which have given us the “freedom” to be enslaved by statists and mocked by Catholics and non-Catholics alike for adhering to Catholic Faith, Worship and Morals without any deviation or reservation as handed down to us from the Apostles themselves.
The way out of this mess runs through Our Lady's Fatima Message. We must continue to make penance for our owns sins as we seek to fulfill the terms of our total consecration to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, praying as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permit. God has known from all eternity that we would be living in these troubling times. There is work for us do as we seek to sanctify our souls and make reparation for our sins.
We have to pray to Our Lady, therefore, to keep close to the tender mercies of her Divine Son's Most Sacred Heart so that the sacrifices we make will be more acceptable in the eyes of her Divine Son and thus more efficacious in planting at least a few seeds for the triumph of her Immaculate Heart and the vanquishing of her Divine Son's foes in the world and in the counterfeit church that is the embodiment of this prophecy of Saint Paul the Apostle, whose conversion we commemorate in but nine days, that is, on Sunday, January 25, 2015, the Third Sunday after the Epiphany:
And we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of our gathering together unto him: That you be not easily moved from your sense, nor be terrified, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by epistle, as sent from us, as if the day of the Lord were at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, Who opposeth, and is lifted up above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God. Remember you not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way. And then that wicked one shall be revealed whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth; and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming, him, Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders, And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish; because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:
That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity. But we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved of God, for that God hath chosen you firstfruits unto salvation, in sanctification of the spirit, and faith of the truth: Whereunto also he hath called you by our gospel, unto the purchasing of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God and our Father, who hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation, and good hope in grace, Exhort your hearts, and confirm you in every good work and word. (2 Thes. 2: 1-16.)
By the graces sent to us by Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, may we have stand fast and hold the traditions which we have learned from our Holy Mother Church, she who is assured of perpetual immunity from heresy and error.
