About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Thoughts on the pro life vigil....

My parish, in following the instructions from our bishop, held a prolife vigil last night.

Nice affair, about an hour long. Both priests and the deacon were there.

But our parish has over 10,000 registered members, there MIGHT have been 50 people there.

It took place right on the heels of the five o'clock Mass. I understand a lot of folks couldn't make it. Hell, my wife had to stay home with the kids in order for me to go so there go four registered members right there.

But you'd think in a parish this size with something as well publicized as the vigil there would have been a lot more bodies in attendance.

I'm not trying to talk myself up for being there, most prolife events I have to pass on. This was an exception. So I can't set myself up, there are too many other events I miss.

But just as an overall note, 50 out of 10,000 is half of one per cent.

That just strikes me as pitiful.

It is. And it's like that because of the dominance of cafeteria catholics and Modernist dissidents in religious education.

We are a remenant in our own Church

I'd guess. There are a lot of things I've no problem with, examples include altar girls, "Protestant" hymns, reception of the Eucharist in the hand, none of these ever strike me as detracting from adoration of the Almighty.

But all too often I encounter the "I'm okay, you're okay" mindset that fails to recognize evil. All too often I meet "Catholics" who support B.O. and see no problem with his record of supporting abortion.

If they really don't want to be Catholic (and that entails taking a lot of orders nobody will like and a lot of folk won't understand.) then it's time to just suck it up and do what we're told. That means not picking and choosing what teachings to follow.
