Beheading Ecumenism

Right in the middle of America's heartland, Oklahoma, we witnessed a recent convert to Islam behead a 54 year-old woman with whom he used to work. According to one news agency:

 ''Alton Nolen, ...aka Jah'Keem Yisrael, after attempting to convert a fellow female worker at Vaughn Foods, and after being fired--beheaded that female co-worker followed by attempting to murder and behead another woman co-worker. The CEO of Vaughn Foods shot Yisrael before he encored his grisly beheading act.

One look at Yisrael's Facebook page features a "Who's Who" adulation of international terrorists from al Qaeda to ICIS. He highlighted one headless victim on his Facebook page with praise to Allah. According to Islam anyone who disagrees with that religion deserves to lose his or her head and hands''

The True Church of Christ has always fought against ''...the darkness of idolatry and of Islamism...'' as the Consecration prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus taught until the defection of the hierarchy. Not only did Antipope John XXIII (now ''St.'') remove that phrase from the prayer, the heretical document Nostra Aetate had this to say:

"3. The Church regards with esteem also the Moslems. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself; merciful and all- powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth, who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God. Though they do not acknowledge Jesus as God, they revere Him as a prophet. They also honor Mary, His virgin Mother; at times they even call on her with devotion. In addition, they await the day of judgment when God will render their desserts to all those who have been raised up from the dead. Finally, they value the moral life and worship God especially through prayer, almsgiving and fasting.

Since in the course of centuries not a few quarrels and hostilities have arisen between Christians and Moslems, this sacred synod urges all to forget the past and to work sincerely for mutual understanding and to preserve as well as to promote together for the benefit of all mankind social justice and moral welfare, as well as peace and freedom"

  There is no peace and freedom apart from the King of Peace, Jesus Christ, and His One True Church. The Modernist Vatican II sect rejects this premise. Antipope Francis takes it even further in his "encyclical" Evangelii Gaudium :

"253. In order to sustain dialogue with Islam, suitable training is essential for all involved, not only so that they can be solidly and joyfully grounded in their own identity, but so that they can also acknowledge the values of others, appreciate the concerns underlying their demands and shed light on shared beliefs. We Christians should embrace with affection and respect Muslim immigrants to our countries in the same way that we hope and ask to be received and respected in countries of Islamic tradition. I ask and I humbly entreat those countries to grant Christians freedom to worship and to practice their faith, in light of the freedom which followers of Islam enjoy in Western countries! Faced with disconcerting episodes of violent fundamentalism, our respect for true followers of Islam should lead us to avoid hateful generalisations, for authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form of violence (Emphasis mine)."

    Frankie would need to explain away the expert testimony of  Imran Ahsan Khan Nyazee, Assistant Professor on the Faculty of Shari’ah and Law of the International Islamic University in Islamabad. In his 1994 book The Methodology of Ijtihad, he quotes the twelfth century Maliki jurist Ibn Rushd: “Muslim jurists agreed that the purpose of fighting with the People of the Book…is one of two things: it is either their conversion to Islam or the payment of jizyah.” Nyazee concludes: “This leaves no doubt that the primary goal of the Muslim community, in the eyes of its jurists, is to spread the word of Allah through jihad, and the option of poll-tax [jizya] is to be exercised only after subjugation” of non-Muslims.

 Furthermore, I'd like to see his exegesis on texts, such as the following, from the Koran:

4:89: “They wish that you should disbelieve as they disbelieve, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of Allah; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or helper.”

 The Vatican II sect refuses to see the fact that Islam is a false religion, a violent and Satanic creed, that brings terrorism to the world on behalf of their false god "Allah." They have softened the stance of formerly Catholic nations (and the world at large) against it in the name of heretical ecumenism. Islam breeds evil, and we have a decapitated woman right here in Oklahoma as the latest in an unending series of proof.

 As I once remarked; perhaps when the Grand Imam of the Islamic Republic of Italy starts issuing fatwas from the erstwhile Vatican City, the world will see the evil of Islam (and the ecumenism that made its victory possible) when it will then be too late. King St. Louis IX, Victor over the Saracens, how the world needs your prayers and protection as never before.

Be Moral (But Only In Moderation)

 I've written before about the Latin aphorism "In medio stat veritas," i.e. "In the middle is the truth." Many times problems arise from people clinging to one extreme position or the other, when the Truth is "in the middle." A case in point would be the Feeneyites (no Baptism of Desire) and the universalists ( virtually everyone gets Baptism of Desire). However, in our postmodern age of apostasy, the world will often paint the Truth as an "extreme" and only some politically correct version of "faith" and/or "morals" will be lauded as "moderate and reasonable," when in fact it is neither.

 Consider, if you will, how moral outrage is often expressed by the world in response to the acts of those overpaid, steroid-using men we call "professional athletes." Football player Ray Rice hits his wife and for days we hear moralizing about spousal abuse. Don't get me wrong, hitting your wife is wrong, but I've heard commentators speak of this incident as something worthy of capital punishment. "It's never permissible to hit a woman," one so-called "conservative commentator" intoned. Really? It's NEVER permissible? If a female drug addict comes up to me with a knife trying to stab me and take my money, I have no moral authority to hit her and save my life? The feminist crowd has made hitting a woman a moral outrage, no matter what the circumstances and you'd better agree with the PC crowd or be prepared to get treated as a pariah.

 In 2009,  former football player Steve McNair, a married father of four children, was found dead, along with his 20 year old mistress Jenny Kazemi. Kazemi had shot McNair dead, and then turned the gun on herself, because she was distraught that McNair apparently told her he would not leave his wife to marry her, contrary to what he had earlier led her to believe. Sportswriter Jason Whitlock criticized McNair not because he was having an affair, but because he spent so much time chasing a 20 year old waitress, he wasn't spending enough time with his children. Whitlock didn't want to condemn adultery because he didn't want to sound like "some sanctimonious moralizer." I bet it never occurred to Mr. Whitlock (or the vast majority of his readers) that in condemning being a lousy father and refusing to denounce adultery, he was, ipso facto, moralizing. Neglect of children is bad. Cheating on your spouse is OK. Hitting a woman is never permitted, even if your own life is at risk. These are the PC ethics of our postmodern age where what's moral is decided by what the "herd" thinks is chic to be frowned upon. In every other area, any absolute condemnation (usually involving sexual ethics) is considered "extreme."

 In the days before the Great Apostasy, there would have been a true pope and Magisterium to speak out on such issues and serve as our moral compass to Heaven. Now, the Vatican II sect fits right in with the world. Consider how the media is gushing over Antipope Francis' appointment of Mr. Blase Cupich as the new "archbishop" of Chicago because he is a "moderate." Why is he labeled a moderate you ask? According to the AP newswire:

" Bishop Blase Cupich has spoken out against same-sex marriage and against conservative hostility toward gay rights advocates. He has opposed abortion, while urging parishioners and priests to have patience, not disdain, for those who disagree. And he has criticized fellow U.S. bishops who threatened to shut down religious charities instead of pursuing a compromise with the White House over health care policies that go against Catholic teaching"

 Seems "reasonable" to those of the world and the followers of Vatican II. However, consider for a moment that Catholic teaching holds that abortion is murder, and homosexuality is unnatural and perverse. These same Modernists in the Vatican II sect condemn Pope Pius XII for his alleged lack of standing up against the Nazis. Their so-called "saint," John Paul II apologized for the inactivity and silence of many Catholics during the Holocaust on March 16, 1998. The Holocaust was wrong and must be actively opposed by Catholics because it was the taking of innocent human life. But, wait a minute, isn't abortion also the taking of innocent life? Isn't pedophilia, so rampant among the Vatican II clergy also unnatural vice? Let's see how the "moderate stance" of Cupich would read in the newswire of 1933 Germany:

" Bishop Blase Cupich has spoken out against pedophilia and against conservative hostility towards pedophilia-rights advocates. He has opposed the Holocaust, while urging parishioners and priests to have patience, not disdain, for those Nazis who disagree. And he has criticized fellow German bishops who threatened to shut down religious charities instead of pursuing a compromise with the Third Reich over the  health care policies of Dr. Mengele that go against Catholic teaching."

Still sound reasonable and moderate to you? Cupich will do all he can to advance the complete collapse of morals under the guise of avoiding "extremism." Their concept of moderation is what's really extreme.

Marrying The Culture of Perversity

 It has been widely reported that Antipope Francis will marry "cohabiting couples" (read: "people shacking up and living in sin"). Yes, people living in sin and giving public scandal should get married, but only after they separate and live chastely until the wedding. This recognizes the sacredness of the marital act. Frankie wants to be "welcoming," i.e. "come on in and we don't mind sin." The Vatican II sect apologists are attempting to spin it as an act of "mercy" and recognition that "no one is perfect." True mercy is fraternal correction, and while fully admitting that none but Christ and His Mother are perfect, we must nevertheless heed Our Lord's admonition to "Be thou therefore perfect, as also thy heavenly Father is perfect."                   (See St. Matthew 5:48)

 What I have not seen mentioned, is how the Antipope's actions once more try to conform Christ to the world and not vice-versa. He is implicitly giving his blessing to the heathen culture which degrades the marital act, and dignifies the cheapening of sex. Look no farther than pop culture to see how desensitized we've become to sexual sin. The world has instilled in people the "pleasure" of indulging in the forbidden without remorse, while appealing to Man's sinful nature. These ultimately lead to a perverse and deranged bondage that is contaminating society at large.

Hollywood is completely obsessed with sex. Even what used to be labeled as family entertainment is not safe. The animated film, The Road to El Dorado, featured the voice of actress Rosie Perez. When she finally saw her character, with a body far beyond that of a Playboy playmate, she was dumbfounded and recalled:

"I was surprised when I saw her. I even told [Dream Works partner] Jeffrey [Katzenberg], "Are you sure this is family programming?"

When filmmakers Rachel and Barak Goodman visited an Atlanta suburb to look into a surprising outbreak of syphilis among 13-17 year olds, they found that one of their main activities involved watching the Playboy Channel, then copying whatever they saw on the screen. Titling their documentary, The Last Children of Rockdale County, the film details the influence television had on the entire town of Rockdale and the carnage of diseases that ruled the day. How bad does shacking up seem in comparison to this vile situation? 

Actress Sharon Stone says she's "studied a myriad of religious philosophies, even Scientology. Ultimately I've come to the conclusion that I'm a Taoist Buddhist who believes in God." She takes her Eastern ideologies seriously. When she wanted to get pregnant, she performed an African fertility dance and sprinkled clover flowers and raspberry leaves on her bed. This was to no avail, yet when she finally adopted a boy, she named him Roan Joseph Bronstein - his first name is Celtic for seal, a magical animal in that mythology. She has been quoted as saying, "I don't believe in sex as sin, or sin in general," and it's not surprising since she has portrayed a lesbian murderer in the film Basic Instinct. 

Actress Michelle Pheiffer is on record as stating: "Fidelity is…not that important. Traditional marriage is very outdated. I don't think people should live together the rest of their lives suppressing frustrations." Yes, and that twisted idea goes along perfectly with studies that show "cohabiting couples" having a much higher divorce rate than those who do not live together prior to marriage since they have no shame and seek not to suppress sin ("frustrations"), even for a short time as penance before marriage.

 The Modernist Antipope Francis strikes again with more damage to Faith and Morals. Maybe they can film the event and call it Sex and The Eternal City.

Luther's Triumph

“Brothers and sisters,Luther’s protest is over. Is yours?” So remarked an Anglican "bishop" at a meeting of Kenneth Copeland Ministries, a Protestant sect. Why is Luther's protest over? He is victorious over the counterfeit "Catholicism" of the Vatican II sect. Copeland himself remarked, "Heaven is thrilled over this…You know what is so thrilling to me? When we went into the ministry 47 years ago,this was impossible." The impossibility being spoken of was the Protestant "bishop's" wife converting to "Catholicism" because she realized she could be "Catholic, and Charismatic, and Evangelical, and Pentecostal, and it was absolutely accepted in the Catholic(sic) Church." Yes, in 1967, the nascent Vatican II sect was not yet ready for the "ecumenical apostasy" on the scale which it has reached today.

 "Pope" Francis should head a new UN-style “Organisation of United Religions”, or “United Religions”, to “combat violence in God’s name”, said former Israeli president, Shimon Peres this past week. The Vatican II sect is the perfect outfit for such a blasphemous endeavor. People may protest that "combating violence in God's Name" is a good thing. In fact, it's an evil worse than the violence. Thinking that you can come to God on your own terms apart from His One True Church is madness. Without the Catholic Faith it is impossible to please God, as the Council of Trent taught. Yet Antipope Francis hates the True Faith. He has proclaimed: "In this, we feel close even to all those men and women who, whilst not recognizing themselves belonging to any religious tradition, feel themselves nevertheless to be in search of truth, goodness and beauty, this truth, goodness and beauty of God, and who are our precious allies in efforts to defend the dignity of man, in building a peaceful coexistence among peoples and in guarding Creation carefully." (Emphasis mine). Got that? Your religious "tradition" doesn't matter.

 As Pope Pius XI taught in his great encyclical letter Mortalium Animos (1928): "All Christians, they add, should be as "one": for then they would be much more powerful in driving out the pest of irreligion, which like a serpent daily creeps further and becomes more widely spread, and prepares to rob the Gospel of its strength. ... in reality beneath these enticing words and blandishments lies hid a most grave error, by which the foundations of the Catholic faith are completely destroyed....authors who favor this view are accustomed, times almost without number, to bring forward these words of Christ: "That they all may be one.... And there shall be one fold and one shepherd," with this signification however: that Christ Jesus merely expressed a desire and prayer, which still lacks its fulfillment. For they are of the opinion that the unity of faith and government, which is a note of the one true Church of Christ, has hardly up to the present time existed, and does not today is clear that the Apostolic See cannot on any terms take part in their assemblies, nor is it anyway lawful for Catholics either to support or to work for such enterprises; for if they do so they will be giving countenance to a false Christianity, quite alien to the one Church of Christ. Shall We suffer, what would indeed be iniquitous, the truth, and a truth divinely revealed, to be made a subject for compromise?

 That was a true Pope's condemnation of ecumenism involving those who acknowledge Christ. Francis goes further by wanting ANY religious tradition or even NO religious tradition (atheists) to be in "communion" with his sect. Since, according to him, we all get to Heaven, it makes sense. (All except those of us in the One True Church go to Heaven!) If you think I exaggerate, the antipope said:

"In ideologies there is not Jesus: in his tenderness, his love, his meekness. And ideologies are rigid, always. Of every sign: rigid. And when a Christian becomes a disciple of the ideology, he has lost the faith: he is no longer a disciple of Jesus, he is a disciple of this attitude of thought… For this reason Jesus said to them: ‘You have taken away the key of knowledge.’ The knowledge of Jesus is transformed into an ideological and also moralistic knowledge, because these close the door with many requirements. The faith becomes ideology and ideology frightens, ideology chases away the people, distances, distances the people and distances of the Church of the people. But it is a serious illness, this of ideological Christians. It is an illness, but it is not new, eh?" To believe in the Truth ("ideology") makes you "ill" and not a true Christian!

  In 1517, the apostate priest Martin Luther, the founder of the false Protestant sects, claimed the authority of each individual to interpret the Scripture. Almost 500 years later, his ideological successor, the Modernist Jorge Bergoglio, proclaims that everyone has the right to believe anything or nothing. Contradictory propositions can all be reconciled "for the good of humanity," at the expense of right reason. It's going from Protestantism to Modernism to atheism, as our culture is riddled with moral and religious relativism which breeds indifference (at best) or unbelief (at worst). The "UN of Religions" is, by definition, "UN-Catholic." Pray that you may be spared from the evil that might be coming soon.

Covering All Bases

Just when you think it can't possibly get any more sacrilegious and downright crazy, the Vatican II sect is ready to prove you wrong. According to a report in the Washington Post:

"Fans who stream into the Navy Yard district before Nats (a professional baseball team--Introibo) games are now greeted with increasingly varied entertainment choices, from Yards Park for fresh air and views of the Anacostia River to the Fairgrounds for frat-rock music and adult refreshments to a variety of neighborhood restaurants and taverns, with more to come.

On Sunday afternoons this summer, they've had another option: a Catholic church service. Or, as the local St. Vincent de Paul church calls it, “Nats Mass.”

“For me, it was kind of a no-brainer,” said Rev. Andrew Royals, 34, a Montgomery County native who became the pastor at the South Capitol Street church about two years ago. “On game days we had thousands of people walking right in front of our church. I was like, ‘Well, I’m sure some of these people would like to go to church.’…And we thought there’s no reason people can’t do both.”

And thus, Nats Mass (sic) was launched in May, a noon service that runs about 40 or 45 minutes, getting attendees out the door in plenty of time for a 1:35 first pitch."

 According to the August 24th article, the church is breaking records, with fans attending in their teams baseball attire. "There are other things that make Nats Mass unique. Royals tries to keep the service a tad briefer than normal, so anxious fans don’t get distracted by the approaching gametime. And he will include references to baseball or to the Washington nine in his homilies – 'it makes it easy when you know that everyone has something in common even beyond our religion,' he said. Baseball 'kind of gives you an extra set of things that we can all relate to.'"

 To put things in perspective, the Vatican II sect feels that something more than the True Faith is necessary to have in common; the cult of idolizing overpaid and (in most cases) steroid-using athletes, whose only contribution to society is their own self-aggrandizement.  Moreover, they no longer have the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass--the Unbloody Sacrifice of the Cross---but have replaced it with a Modernist worship service that is so banal, that they need to get people to attend by dressing like slobs and having "theological discussions" regarding a profane sport to keep their attention.

 There is nothing wrong with playing in sports or watching them. (I do neither, but I'm a jiu-jitsu expert with 28 years professional training and an avid runner putting in approx. 100 miles a month. This I do for self-defense--which I also teach one night a week-- and for personal health). However, the CULT of sports is pervasive in our culture, and the Vatican II sect panders to it.

 The First Commandment does not say, "Thou shalt not be an atheist," but rather, "Thou shalt not have false gods before Me." Humanity is incurably God-centered. Whatever you put ahead of God, be it money, fame, drugs/alcohol, power, sex, your career, sports, or anything else, that becomes the false god to whom you pay homage. Ironically, the word "fan" is short for "fanatic," a word typically reserved for the religious, for whom the term is used pejoratively. For sports, the world sees the label as a badge of honor.

 Equally ironic, I think, is that Mr. Royals and his fellow Vatican II sect members are not getting their people to be fans of the only One Whom matters: Jesus Christ. Instead of having them come dressed up with jerseys of their false sports idols, why not have them dress reverently for Christ? Have them wear a Crucifix, and a medal of a saint; a real hero. They are sacramentals that can bring graces to their souls.

Adult and children’s minds are occupied, from early morning to late at night, as to what team is going to win. Their interest for these sports far exceeds their interest for their eternal soul's welfare. It is their daily subject, ask the teenager. With very few exceptions, they are better acquainted with the names of the various players than with the basic Truths of Faith. How about "homilies" (the former sermon) dedicated to preaching on Church Teaching?

People have been in riots when their team loses a big game. Fist fights break out if someone slights a player from the favorite team of another person. Why not encourage people to get outraged over abortuaries that murder innocent children, and fight over the blasphemies that the media turns out on a daily basis against Christ and basic Christian values?

 This will not happen because the Vatican II sect is NOT the Roman Catholic Church. It is up to us-- Traditionalists-- to become "fanatics" for what's left of Christ's One True Church and fight the good fight of the True Faith. St. Paul does make one sports analogy when under Divine Inspiration, he writes, "Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize."      (See 1 Corinthians 9:24).

 For the Vatican II sect, it's the bottom of the ninth, bases loaded, and the mighty Francis and his team of Modernists have struck out. Don't be stuck with these losers when Christ has had enough and tells them, "Game over."
