Many articles on this site (among them being Making Everyone Happy Except God, Whatever You Want, Silence, Extra! Extra! Read All About It! Dolan Finally Speaks The Truth, Ominous Offenders Offending Ominously, Memo To David Axelrod And Other Social Engineers, John Carroll's Caesar, Victims of Compromise, Taking A Figure Of Antichrist At His Worthless Words, Prisoners Of Their Own Apostasy, Timothy Dolan, Meet Timothy Dolan (And Friends), Still Celebrating Half A Century Of Apostasy, Candidate For Man Of The Year?, From John Carroll To James Gibbons To Timothy Dolan) in the past few years have focused on the glad-handling apostate, Timothy Michael Dolan, who has been masquerading as the "archbishop" of New York since April 15, 2009. As has been noted on other occasions, "Cardinal" Dolan is but a "copy," if you will of the man who transferred him from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, where had kept his thoroughly disgraced predecessor, Rembert George Weakland, O.S.B., in "good standing" and permitted him to address Catholics at the Cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist, to the Archdiocese of New York and who elevated him to the conciliar college of "cardinals" on February 18, 2012, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI.
Timothy Dolan was in the first wave of young men studying for what they thought was the Catholic priesthood following the "Second" Vatican Council. Born on February 6, 1950, Dolan studied for the priesthood in Rome at the Pontifical Academy of Saint Thomas Aquinas, the Angelicum, in the 1970s during the "pontificate" of Giovanni Montini/Paul VI. He was immersed in a study of a corrupted, Modernist version of the Catholic Faith that made little reference to those documents that preceded the "ecclesiogenesis" that sprung up at the false council that had been convened by Angelo Roncalli/John XXIIII and began its attacks on the Catholic Faith on October 11, 1962, the Feast of the Divine Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
It is important to bear in mind that men such as Timothy "Cardinal" Dolan, who is a dyed-in-the-wool Americanist, do not have Ratzinger/Benedict's background in the Faith. Ratzinger/Benedict has studied the Faith very well. His version of Modernism, wrought by way of the "new theology" he learned in seminary in Regensburg, Germany in the late-1940s, is an effort to "reinvent" and "reinterpret" the Faith according to propositions condemned by Pope Pius IX in The Syllabus of Errors, December 8, 1864, and by Pope Saint Pius X in Lamentabili Sane, July 1, 2007, Pascendi Dominci Gregis, September 8, 1907, Praestina Scripturae, November 21, 1907, and The Oath Against Modernism, September 1, 1910, and by Pope Pius XII in Humani Generis, August 12, 1950. Men such as Timothy Michael Dolan, installed as they were as presbyters in the 1970s in the first wave of those trained in the conciliar revolution, are simply copies of their masters. They are really caricatures of every slogan used by the Modernists of yore.
Timothy Michael Dolan is a walking, ever-talking grab bag of one slogan after another. As noted four months ago now, Timothy Dolan's overwhelming ignorance was on full display on Easter Sunday, April 8, 2012, on the Columbia Broadcasting System's Face the Nation television program. As noted in Candidate For Man Of The Year?, the official transcript of Dolan's interview on Face the Nation is such an amazing collection of emotional mishmash, illogic and sheer apostasy that, to be charitable in light of his immersion in all things conciliar from the time he attended Saint Louis Preparatory Seminary in Shrewsbury, Missouri, in 1964 at the age of fourteen, is truly the most massive amalgamation of stupidity that a conciliar official has ever provided in a televised interview, admitting that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's various book-length interviews over the years with journalist Peter Seewald take the prize for written amalgamations of apostasy and illogic.
Just consider a few of the "gems" uttered and misdeeds done by "Cardinal" Malaprop, the former "Archbishop" Cheesehead of Milwaukee, in the past forty months since taking his version of the conciliar circus to the "big top" on Fifth Avenue, not to exclude, of course, the skyline view of the East River that he has in his offices atop the twentieth floor of 1011 First Avenue in the Borough of Manhattan of the City of New York.
April 15, 2009:
I aim to be a happy bishop, sharing joys and laughs with you. So you will see me at the St. Patrick's parade, and at the new Yankee Stadium,
and at processions and feast days and barbecues across our almost 400
parishes. Being Catholic is not a heavy burden, snuffing the joy out of
life; rather our faith in Jesus and His Church gives meaning, purpose
and joy to life. I love being a Catholic, I love being a priest, and I
fully intend to love being archbishop of New York while loving all of
you in the Church in New York. (Timothy Dolan, New Archbishop talks to News.)
April 22, 2009:
"This is awesome for me," Archbishop Dolan said. "I have long
admired the work of the Anti-Defamation League from afar, and now to
receive your welcome and your assurances of our hope for future
cooperation, which I enthusiastically share, means very much to me."(Press Release of the Anti-Defamtion League.)
The "work" of the "Anti-Defamation League" of B'Nai Brith has included, of course, the promotion of the chemical and surgical assassination of innocent preborn children and of "marriage" for those of the same gender. The "Anti-Defamation League," whose president, Abraham Foxman, denounced The Passion of the Christ as "anti-Semitic" and who has denounced both Bishop Richard Williamson, the Society of Saint Pius X and the unreformed Good Friday Prayer for the Jews and the Immemorial Mass of Tradition as anti-Semitic, has filed amicus curiae briefs in various cases to promote baby-killing and perversity under cover of the civil law. (See the compendium as found in (see Silence for a review of some of the legal briefs by the Anti-Defamation League in support of immorality).
March 10, 2010:
Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York told an Albany
television reporter on March 9 that he does not favor denying Holy
Communion to Catholic politicians who support abortion and same-sex
“NEWS10's John McLoughlin asked Archbishop Dolan
if he favored denying the Church's Sacraments to politicians, like
Governor David Paterson, who are Roman Catholic but also pro-choice and
pro-gay marriage,” WTEN-TV reported. “The prelate acknowledged that some
of his fellow bishops might favor such a ban, but Dolan said he does
not, preferring to follow the lead of Popes John Paul II and
Benedict XVI, who said it was better to try to persuade them than to
Archbishop Dolan was in Albany to lobby on behalf
of Catholic schools, which face increasing financial strain because of
unfunded government mandates.
In Milwaukee, Archbishop Jerome Listecki said that
he, too, would be averse to the idea of denying the Eucharist to a
prominent abortion advocate, although he did exclude the possibility.
The newly installed archbishop told an audience at the Milwaukee Press
Club that his decision would take into account "the impact of whatever
that person is doing." Before taking disciplinary action, he said, he
would want to "help them come to an understanding of the teaching."
Archbishop Listecki said: "It's very difficult for
me to see how somebody can be pro-choice knowing the teachings of the
church" (Timothy Dolan Will Not Refuse "Communion" to Pro-Abortion Pols.)
Consider, if only for a moment, the fact that we are now just five months, sixteen days away from the fortieth anniversary of the Supreme Court
decisions in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.
The time for "persuasion" has long since past. Alas, sanctions in the
counterfeit church of conciliarism are reserved principally, although
not exclusively, for those who dare to reject its multiple apostasies,
most especially upon presbyters who dare to leave the conciliar
structures as they reject the nonexistent "legitimacy" of Joseph
Ratzinger as "Pope" Benedict XVI, and also upon those who dare to utter
any word that offends the sensibilities of the conciliar church's "elder
brothers in the faith." Persuasion? I suppose it's easier to convince
oneself of this empty canard than to run the risk of daily ridicule in
the secular media.
June 19, 2010:
Timothy Dolan and his conciliar predecessor, Edward "Cardinal" Egan, attended a " Service of Rededication" at a den of the lavender collective, the Church of Saint Francis Xavier in the Borough of Manhattan in the City of New York, New York, listening as various speakers extolled the "LGBT ministry" at a parish, located in the western part of Greenwich Village, whose parishioners walked behind a parish banner in the annual parade of perversity that makes its insidious way down Fifth Avenue, passing right in front of the Cathedral of Saint Patrick in the process, on the fourth Sunday of June until Dolan told them not to use the parish banner. Parishioners still continue to march in the parade of perversity each year.
November 25, 2010:
Thanksgiving is a time of the year when people are open to the Lord, and
we don't think about ourselves. We're grateful to God. We're conscious
that somebody, some call him or her, whatever you want, somebody beyond
us is in charge, and we are immensely grateful. (Is 'Superman' Catholic?)
"Whatever you want"? Perhaps a little reminder from something called the
First Commandment might get you to speak about God with reference and
precision, not a breezy, flippant casualness that reaffirms, even if by
inadvertence, Catholics and non-Catholics alike that it really does not
matter what you call God or how or even if your worship Him if you
participate in the spectacle of a "thanksgiving day" that features many
Americans gathering around their turkey dinners "thanking" "God" that
they live in land where they can practice "freedom of choice" when it
comes to killing innocent babies, a land of "liberty and justice" for
all except for the Sacred Rights of Christ the King and for the innocent
babies themselves, a land where it really does not make difference you
call God as long as you remember that this is, after all, "one nation
under God" even though it does not matter Who this God is or what He has
revealed to us or that every nation has an obligation to profess belief
in the one and only true God of Divine Revelation.
Thursday, March 31, 2011: "Archbishop" Timothy Michael Dolan permitted a so-called "Mass of Christian Burial" to be staged for the late Geraldine Anne Ferraro Zaccaro at the Church of Saint Vincent Ferrer in the Borough of Manhattan in the City of New York, New York, despite Mrs. Zaccaro's open support for the chemical and legal slaughter of the innocent preborn.
February 14, 2012:
The top U.S. Catholic bishop vowed legislative and court challenges Tuesday to a compromise by President Barack Obama to his healthcare mandate that now exempts religiously affiliated
institutions from paying directly for birth control for their workers,
instead making insurance companies responsible.
Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan, who heads
the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, said in an interview with The
Associated Press that he trusted Obama wasn't anti-religious and
intended to make good on his pledge to work with religious groups to
fine-tune the mandate.
"I want to take him at his word," Dolan said
in Rome, where he will be made a cardinal Saturday. But he stressed: "I
do have to say it's getting harder and harder," to believe Obama's
claim to prioritize religious freedom issues given the latest
controversy. (Top U.S. Catholic Bishop Vows Legal Challenges to Obama's Birth Control Rule.)
Take a figure of Antichrist at his utterly worthless words? There's also a bridge that runs from lower Manhattan to the Borough of Brooklyn that I can sell Timothy Michael Dolan.
February 24, 2012:
freedom is a fundamental right of all. This right does not depend on any
government’s decision to grant it: it is God-given, and just societies
recognize and respect its free exercise. The free exercise of religion extends
well beyond the freedom of worship. It also forbids government from forcing
people or groups to violate their most deeply held religious convictions, and
from interfering in the internal affairs of religious organizations. (Letter to "Bishops"From "Cardinal" Dolan.)
A God-given right? No, a heresy is more like it:
"Man should use his reason first of all to recognize his Sovereign
Maker, honoring Him and admiring Him, and submitting his entire person
to Him. For, from his childhood, he should be submissive to those who
are superior to him in age; he should be governed and instructed by
their lessons, order his life according to their laws of reason, society
and religion. This inflated equality and liberty, therefore,
are for him, from the moment he is born, no more than imaginary dreams
and senseless words." (Pope Pius VI, Brief Quod aliquantum, March 10, 1791; Religious Liberty, a “Monstrous Right").
The Catholic Church: For how can We tolerate with
equanimity that the Catholic religion, which France received in the
first ages of the Church, which was confirmed in that very kingdom by
the blood of so many most valiant martyrs, which by far the greatest
part of the French race professes, and indeed bravely and constantly
defended even among the most grave adversities and persecutions and
dangers of recent years, and which, finally, that very dynasty to which
the designated king belongs both professes and has defended with much
zeal - that this Catholic, this most holy religion, We say, should not
only not be declared to be the only one in the whole of France supported
by the bulwark of the laws and by the authority of the Government, but
should even, in the very restoration of the monarchy, be entirely passed
over? But a much more grave, and indeed very bitter, sorrow increased
in Our heart - a sorrow by which We confess that We were crushed,
overwhelmed and torn in two - from the twenty-second article of the
constitution in which We saw, not only that "liberty of religion and of
conscience" (to use the same words found in the article) were permitted
by the force of the constitution, but also that assistance and patronage
were promised both to this liberty and also to the ministers of these
different forms of "religion". There is certainly no need of many words,
in addressing you, to make you fully recognize by how lethal a wound
the Catholic religion in France is struck by this article. For when the
liberty of all "religions" is indiscriminately asserted, by this very
fact truth is confounded with error and the holy and immaculate Spouse
of Christ, the Church, outside of which there can be no salvation, is
set on a par with the sects of heretics and with Judaic perfidy itself. For when favour and patronage is promised even to the sects of heretics
and their ministers, not only their persons, but also their very
errors, are tolerated and fostered: a system of errors in which is
contained that fatal and never sufficiently to be deplored HERESY which,
as St. Augustine says (de Haeresibus, no.72), "asserts that all
heretics proceed correctly and tell the truth: which is so absurd that
it seems incredible to me." (Pope Pius VII, Post Tam Diuturnas, April 29, 1814, POST TAM DIUTURNAS)
"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.
Here We must include that harmful and never
sufficiently denounced freedom to publish any writings whatever and
disseminate them to the people, which some dare to demand and promote
with so great a clamor. We are horrified to see what monstrous doctrines
and prodigious errors are disseminated far and wide in countless books,
pamphlets, and other writings which, though small in weight, are very
great in malice. We are in tears at the abuse which proceeds from them
over the face of the earth. Some are so carried away that they
contentiously assert that the flock of errors arising from them is
sufficiently compensated by the publication of some book which defends
religion and truth. Every law condemns deliberately doing evil
simply because there is some hope that good may result. Is there any
sane man who would say poison ought to be distributed, sold publicly,
stored, and even drunk because some antidote is available and those who
use it may be snatched from death again and again? (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." (Pope Pius IX, Quanta Cura, December 8, 1864.)
April 8, 2012:
BOB SCHIEFFER: I want to talk a little politics with you, your eminence back in 1960.
TIMOTHY DOLAN: I'm not surprised.
SCHIEFFER: When John Kennedy became the first Catholic President, he
made a speech during the campaign, because he said flatly, he wanted
people to know and he wanted to assure them that he thought there was a
separation between church and state. Here is the way he put it.
TIMOTHY DOLAN: Yeah.
F. KENNEDY (September 12, 1960): I believe in an America where the
separation of church and state is absolute; where no Catholic prelate
would tell the President, should he be Catholic, how to act, and no
Protestant minister would tell his parishioners for whom to vote.
SCHIEFFER: Now people in both parties have referred back to that over
the years as-- as a good definition of church and state, but during this
campaign year, one of the Republican candidates, Rick Santorum, said
this about it.
RICK SANTORUM (November 11, 2011): If I
had the opportunity to read the speech, I almost threw up. He should
read the speech. It's-- in my opinion it was the beginning of the
secular movement of politicians to separate their faith from the public
square. And he threw faith under the bus in that speech.
SCHIEFFER: Your eminence, where do you think the line should be between
church and state? Is there, should there be a separation?
TIMOTHY DOLAN: You bet there should. You bet there should. That's good,
that separation between church and state is good, not only for the
United States, it's also good for the church. I'd find myself and give
me a second to explain this, Bob, I'd find myself, believe it or not,
agreeing with both of them. I would cheered what John Kennedy said, he
was right, and I would-- I would find myself among those applauding that
speech. That having been said, I would also say that Senator Santorum
had a good point because, unfortunately, what John Kennedy said in
September of 1960 to the Baptist Ministerial Alliance in Texas has been
misinterpreted to mean that a separation of church and state also means a
cleavage a wall between one's faith and one's political decisions,
between one's-- one's moral focus and between one-- the way one might
act in the political sphere. I don't think John Kennedy meant that and
as you know recent scholarship has shown that John Kennedy was very
inspired by vision, by character, by virtue, let's call that faith,
let's call that morals. So I don't think John Kennedy meant a cleavage
between faith and politics. He did mean a wall between state and church,
and I would applaud that one, but I would agree with Senator Santorum
that unfortunately that has been misrepresented to mean that faith has
no place in the public square. That, I would, with Senator Santorum say
is a misinterpretation not only what Senator Kennedy meant but with what
the American genius is all about. (Page Three of the Transcript from Face the Nation, Easter Sunday, April 8, 2012.)
Applauding a "wall between state and church"? What an utter ignoramus:
That the State must be separated from the Church is a thesis absolutely
false, a most pernicious error. Based, as it is, on the principle that
the State must not recognize any religious cult, it is in the first
place guilty of a great injustice to God; for the Creator of man is also
the Founder of human societies, and preserves their existence as He
preserves our own. We owe Him, therefore, not only a private cult, but a
public and social worship to honor Him. Besides, this thesis is an
obvious negation of the supernatural order. It limits the action of the
State to the pursuit of public prosperity during this life only, which
is but the proximate object of political societies; and it occupies
itself in no fashion (on the plea that this is foreign to it) with their
ultimate object which is man's eternal happiness after this short life
shall have run its course. But as the present order of things is
temporary and subordinated to the conquest of man's supreme and absolute
welfare, it follows that the civil power must not only place no
obstacle in the way of this conquest, but must aid us in effecting it.
The same thesis also upsets the order providentially established by God
in the world, which demands a harmonious agreement between the two
societies. Both of them, the civil and the religious society, although
each exercises in its own sphere its authority over them. It follows
necessarily that there are many things belonging to them in common in
which both societies must have relations with one another. Remove the
agreement between Church and State, and the result will be that from
these common matters will spring the seeds of disputes which will become
acute on both sides; it will become more difficult to see where the
truth lies, and great confusion is certain to arise. Finally, this
thesis inflicts great injury on society itself, for it cannot either
prosper or last long when due place is not left for religion, which is
the supreme rule and the sovereign mistress in all questions touching
the rights and the duties of men. Hence the Roman Pontiffs have never
ceased, as circumstances required, to refute and condemn the doctrine of
the separation of Church and State. (Pope Saint Pius X, Vehementer Nos, February 11, 1906.)
Was Pope Saint Pius X wrong, "Cardinal" Dolan?
Catholicism is the one and only foundation of
personal and social order, making it necessary yet again to turn to
these words of Pope Saint Pius X, contained in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910:
Here we have, founded by Catholics, an
inter-denominational association that is to work for the reform of
civilization, an undertaking which is above all religious in character; for
there is no true civilization without a moral civilization, and no true
moral civilization without the true religion: it is a proven truth, a
historical fact. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Timothy Michael Dolan does not believe this. Aping his conciliar "pope," he wants all "religions" to have their say in society.
A generic attachment to
"religion," however, is of the essence of Judeo-Masonry, not Catholicism. That it
is "good enough" for the lords of conciliarism, including Joseph
Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and "Archbishop" Charles Chaput, makes relevant
once again this warning about Masonry and its ethos given us by Pope Leo
XIII in Custodi Di Quella Fede, December 8, 1892:
Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship
with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups.
Know them by their fruits and avoid them. 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.)
April 8, 2012:
BOB SCHIEFFER: Well, there was certainly no duct tape on-- on-- on
your mouth when the President came out and let it be known that his
health care plan included Catholic institutions having to buy birth
control pills for their employees at church-- in churches and in schools
and in hospitals. I want to ask you about that because I interviewed
the vice president last week and he told me that it all had been
resolved. Here-- here is what he said.
JOE BIDEN: On the
substance, the President ended up exactly where he intended, where he
began. Which was that, one, every woman in America should be able to
have insurance coverage for birth control if she so chooses and that the
Catholic Church and other churches should not have to pay for it or
provide it. That's exactly where we are now.
BOB SCHIEFFER: For the record is that what you advised the President?
JOE BIDEN: Yes. But that's also where the President was in the front end.
BOB SCHIEFFER: So I guess that question I'd ask you, Your Eminence, are you good with that?
TIMOTHY DOLAN: No, although I appreciate very much the Vice President.
He has been helpful and I-- I-- I have benefitted from his counsel and I
look forward to talking to him again. So I am glad he weighed in on it
but I would disagree with him. It hasn't helped us much, Bob, because--
because we still have to pay for it, because most of us are self-insured
and we are still worried not just about our institutions but also the
individuals. So we still find ourselves in a very tough spot, and we're
still going to continue to express what we believe is just not a
religious point of view but a constitutional point of view that
America's at her best when the government doesn't force a citizen or a
group of citizens in a religious creed to violate their deepest held
BOB SCHIEFFER: Do you agree with what
the vice president seemed to be saying that this-- that the President
really didn't change his position?
DOLAN: Yes, I-- I think so. Although I am a little confused, because the
President told me his convict--- his position, his conviction is that
the government would do nothing to impede religion. And he-- he was very
gracious, and especially complimenting the Catholic family in the
United States in their work for health care charity and education. And
he'd say I don't want this administration to do anything to-- to impede
that. It's tough for me to see how the strangling HHS Regulations do
anything but that. (Page Four of the Transcript from Face the Nation, Easter Sunday, April 8, 2012.)
Timothy Michael Dolan very much appreciates Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and has benefitted from his counsel? Huh? Appreciate Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., a pro-abort Catholic politician of longstanding? Appreciate Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.? (see Lest We Forget, Memo to Joseph Biden and Nancy Pelosi and Their Conciliar Enablers, Fact and Fiction, Fallacies Galore, Just A Personal Visit and "D" Stands For Demagogue).
Here's news for Timothy Michael Dolan: Pope Pius XI does not appreciate the likes of Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. He would never have sought the counsel of such a man:
Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it
is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to
defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those
whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among
whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's
womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by
their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors
or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of
innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930.)
Has Timothy Michael Dolan warned Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., that his immortal soul is in jeopardy of eternal hell fire? I forgot. This is against his false religion, concilairism.
Mind you, these are only a few highlights of the past forty months of Timothy Michael Dolan's "reign" as conciliar "archbishop" of New York.
It should, therefore, surprise no one that the walking, talking cliche-filled exemplar of conciliarism as the president of the falsely titled entity known as the "United States Conference of Catholic Bishops" will host the annual yuk-feast at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel known as the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner, held in honor of the first Catholic to be nominated by a major organized crime family of naturalism in the United States of America to be its presidential nominee, Alfred Emmanuel Smith (see Cut From the Same Cloth), on Thursday, October 18, 2012. While it is unknown at this point whether the currently reigning, pro-abortion American caesar, Barack Hussein Obama, who has declared war on the Catholic Faith much in the same manner as Plutarco Elias Calles eighty-six years ago now, or his pro-contraception, pro-abortion "in hard cases" and formerly pro-abortion in all cases opponent, Willard Mitt Romney, who is not making any kind of issue out of ObamaCare or Fast and Furious and only speaks about Obama's health-insurance coverage mandate for contraction and other "family planning" services before friendly and very clueless Catholic audiences, will appear, what is referred to colloquially as the "Al Smith Dinner" has had a very long history of pro-aborts serving as its honored speakers over the years.
Among these pro-aborts have been then United States Secretary of State Heinz Alfred Kissinger (see Foggy Bottom's Bloody Tradition and Making It Up As They Go Along), who has been serving as a consultant to Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict on foreign policy issues since 2006 (see It's Up--and It's No Good!) in 1974, then Governor Hugh Leo Carey of the State of New York, who was pro-death at the time and would remain so until 1990, not that it changed his political endorsements, which included William Jefferson Blythe Clinton, Albert Arnold Gore, Jr., and Barack Hussein Obama, thereafter, in 1977, then Governor Michael S. Dukakis of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 1988, who appeared with the partly pro-life and partly pro-abortion Vice President George Herbert Walker Bush, then First Lady Barbara Bush in 1989, then United States Senate Minority Leader Robert Joseph Dole, Jr., who had supported then President Clinton's decision to fund embryonic stem cell search with Federal taxpayer dollars, in 1993, a complete pro-abort, then Vice President Albert Arnold Gore, Jr., and his partly pro-life, partly pro-death Masonic opponent, Jack Kemp, in 1996, the late Timothy Russert, a Catholic who had worked for pro-aborts Mario Matthew Cuomo and Daniel Patrick Moynihan, in 1997, the pro-abort Tom Brokaw in 1998, the pro-abort Gore and his presidential opponent in 2000, the partly pro-life and partly pro-abortion George Walker Bush (who appeared again in 2004 along with the eighty-five year-old Hugh Leo Carey), the partly pro-life, partly pro-death and completely pro-perversity Vice President Richard Bruce Cheney in 2001, the completely pro-death United States Secretary of State Colin Powell in 2002, the partly pro-life an partly pro-death United States Senator John Sidney McCain III in 2005, the pro-death and pro-Obama Brian Williams, who is a Catholic, by the way, in 2006, the completely pro-abortion former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Tony Blair in 2007 after his conversion to the conciliar structures, McCain and Obama in 2008 (need one write more?) and the pro-abortion Catholic couple of James Carville and Mary Matalin Carville in 2010. That's quite a lineup of pro-aborts of all political stripes, not including the statist President Lyndon Baines Johnson who got the United States of America involved in the business of funding domestic "family planning programs" in 1965, who addressed the dinner as vice president in 1962 and as president in 1964 and 1968 (see Dinner Speakers).
In light of the mandate crafted by the pro-abortion, Catholic Secretary of Health of Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and issued by President Barack Hussein Obama, Mrs. Randy Engel, the founder and director of the U. S. Coalition for Life, is calling for this years Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner to be cancelled. This is, of course, a most noble goal, especially in light of the fact that the stated goal of the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation to provide money for children, including homes for unwed mothers and pregnancy counseling centers, that could be raised simply by asking those who would otherwise fork over the big bucks to attend the yuk fest simply to make a donation to the foundation in the amount that tickets would have cost.
The reality, however, is that the clueless Catholics with the big bucks like their night out in white tie and tails. They like yukking it up over the "funnies" made by the speakers. They will applaud Willard Mitt Romney this year with vigor even though the man is a fake, phony and fraud on issues that should matter to Catholics and is a member of a fake, phony, fraud religion made up by a confidence man named Joseph Smith in Palmyra, New York, in 1829. They are always looking for the "secular savior" who is going to slay the latest boogeyman of the false opposite of the naturalist "left."
Additionally, of course, this will be Timothy Michael Dolan's first chance to preside over an Al Smith Dinner during a presidential campaign. It is not very likely that he is going to give up the spotlight that he loves so much for the sake of sobriety at a time of government-sponsored persecution of Catholicism that has nothing to do with the Americanist embodiment of the heresy known as religious liberty and everything to do with simple hatred of the true Faith on the part of the statists who seek to control our minds and our bodies for our own "good," you understand.
Mrs. Engel's proposal is, of course, a good one. I have a better one, I believe, however: just cancel the counterfeit church of conciliarism lock, stock and barrel.
Alas, that is going to be for God to do in His good time, not ours, as we accept the chastisements of the moment as coming from His loving hand for His honor and glory and for our sanctification through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Remember, A miraculous fall of snow on the Esquiline Hill in Rome Italy, on August 5, 355 A.D., one thousand, six hundred sixty-seven years ago yesterday, made
clear an outline of the great basilica that was to be built in honor of
Our Lady, which is called today the Basilica of Saint Mary Major. The outline Basilica di
Sancta Maria Maggiore was to be found in the snows on Esquiline Hill.
In this great basilica, can be found the Crib in which the Newborn
Christ-Child was placed upon His birth in Bethlehem, the body of Saint
Jerome, who had laid his head on that crib, and the relics of Saint Matthias. The ceiling of its nave is
covered with the first gold that was brought back by the Spaniards from
the Americas. The feast that was commemorated yesterday, the Tenth Sunday after Pentecost, reminds us that it is God's will for us
to give public honor to His Most Blessed Mother, who has been sent to us
by Him on numerous occasions through the centuries to give us various
aids (the Rosary, the Brown Scapular, the Miraculous Medal, the Green
Scapular) to give us home to Heaven.
We must trust that Our Lady will help to manifest the
Triumph of her Immaculate Heart and thus ushering in her Reign, the
Reign of Mary, as her Divine Son's Social Reign is restored in as
miraculous manner as snow fell in Rome so miraculously on the night of
August 4, 355. Every Rosary we pray will help to bring about this
miracle as the Church Militant on earth resurrects from her mystical
burial. Each of our acts of penance in reparation for our sins will help
to bring about this miracle.
It is not given to us to know the day or the other
when the conciliarists will be vanquish as, to quote the late William C.
Koneazny once again, Our Lady "throws the bums out." It is enough for
us to do our parts each day to sanctify our immortal souls as we give
honor and glory to the Most Blessed Trinity through Our Lady's Sorrowful
and Immaculate Heart. We must be patient in bearing the crosses of this
present moment, praying as many Rosaries as our state in life permits.
We must beg Our Lady to ask us to be faithful to this simple statement of Catholic truth by Pope Saint Pius X that has never been uttered by any conciliar "pope" or by any of the speakers at the annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner:
This, nevertheless, is what they want to do with
human society; they dream of changing its natural and traditional
foundations; they dream of a Future City built on different principles,
and they dare to proclaim these more fruitful and more beneficial than
the principles upon which the present Christian City rests.
No, Venerable Brethren, We must repeat with the
utmost energy in these times of social and intellectual anarchy when
everyone takes it upon himself to teach as a teacher and lawmaker - the
City cannot be built otherwise than as God has built it; society cannot
be setup unless the Church lays the foundations and supervises the
work; no, civilization is not something yet to be found, nor is the New
City to be built on hazy notions; it has been in existence and still is:
it is Christian civilization, it is the Catholic City. It has only to be set up and restored continually against the unremitting attacks of insane dreamers, rebels and miscreants. omnia instaurare in Christo. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and the hour of our death.
Vivat Christus Rex!
