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.

The persecution game is on, NOW!!

New York City, N.Y., May 14, 2011 / 12:39 pm (CNA).- Amnesty International has cited the Vatican in a new report on human rights violations, alleging that it “did not sufficiently comply” with laws “relating to the protection of children.” The Catholic League says the charge represents ideological axe-grinding, from an organization that has lost Church support.

“This is ideology at work, not objective research,” said Catholic League President Bill Donohue. “Coming up empty with cases of abuse that occurred last year, (Amnesty) decided to adopt a 'look-back' strategy, one that is exclusively applied to the Catholic Church.”

Amnesty's 2011 Annual Report charges the Holy See with human rights violations for “child sexual abuse committed by members of the clergy over the past decades,” and what it describes as “the enduring failure of the Catholic Church to address these crimes properly.”

Donohue said it was “preposterous” for Amnesty to “hold the Vatican responsible for the behavior of priests all over the world,” a responsibility that belongs to local bishops according to Catholic teaching.

He also observed that the “vast majority” of abuse cases “occurred between the mid-1960s and the mid-1980s, having nothing to do with any alleged culpability on the part of the Holy See in 2010.”

“The Annual Report on the other 156 nations details human rights violations that occurred in 2010,” Donohue observed, noting that the report “lists not a single instance of a human rights violation that took place anywhere in the world in 2010 under the auspices of the Holy See.”

Yet Amnesty “still managed to condemn its human rights record,” the Catholic League president reflected. “So what's going on?”

Amnesty's motivation may derive partly from its own loss of Catholic support in recent years. The organization, founded by a Catholic convert, was once favored in many quarters of the Church for its opposition to torture and the death penalty.

But the group has lost significant support from Catholics, and drawn criticisms from bishops, for its 2007 decision to support universal access to abortion as a “human right.” The group has also begun advocating strongly for same-sex “marriage.”

In 2007, the president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, Cardinal Renato Martino, said Amnesty had “betrayed its mission” of promoting human rights by endorsing abortion.

(End of story, my comments follow.)

So the groundwork continues to be laid for the inevitable formal persecution of the Church. We'll have other "human rights" organizations find fault in the same manner, this will be followed by popular condemnation of "hate groups". You can guess what will be used as guidance in determining what constitutes such a group.

Then will follow increasing difficulties in the workplace for Catholics, especially areas such as healthcare where the Church's stance against abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, gay marriage and human cloning will butt heads with company policies & practices. Don't look to the Feds for relief, "conscience protection" laws are being quickly gutted.

Quislings within the Church will provide cover for the attackers as they proclaim the newly revived heresy of Modernism (covered brilliantly by the Ignorant Redneck here: , I recommend reading it. He's dead on the money.). Those of us faithful to Church teaching will find ourselves increasingly ostracized, our asses place under various goverment agency microscopes as our children are removed, our homes taken and any charge that may conceivably stick brought into play. At the least it will be death by a thousand financial cuts, going from courtroom battle to courtroom battle until we're decimated. That applies not only to individuals but to parishes and dioceses.

Don't expect relief in 2012 either, I see that one of the frontrunners for the GOP Presidential ticket is Mitch Daniels. He's already espoused a "truce" on "cultural" issues such as abortion, now it seems he may pick Condoleeza Rice as his running mate. The problem I immediately see is Dr. Rice believes in legalized abortion. Uh-oh, not good.

So look for no relief anytime soon.

I'm still amazed at times how far the discrediting of those opposing the Culture of Death has gone. The other day on a Facebook entry regarding a proabort arrested for terrorist activity against prolifers, an old shipmate admitted to mixed feelings. He felt the man was wrong but so were the prolife felons who injured/killed their opponents, even though it was done for a good cause. My jaw dropped, this is a reasonably intelligent man, a Christian and yet he's been led to believe the common myth of the violent prolifers. He doesn't know just how few times some nutjob, identifying himself as ardently prolife, has murdered someone. He also doesn't know how often (especially lately) prolife vigil participants find themselves threatened either by some mouthy punk OR even the local cops. It's happening and happening more often. Ask the "Notre Dame 88" about ridiculous persecution. Theirs came at the hands of a supposedly Catholic University.

So it's here folks and it's getting worse. Stand by if you're faithful to the Magisterium, get well informed on official Church teaching so you can defend it in the workplace, speak out when you have the opportunity.

The followers of Moloch, Beelzebub, et al may make a feast out of our asses. But we can at least get a sandwich out of theirs.

I know what you mean about he persecution game. Just the other day I read an article that was linked to at Daily Kos, written by an abortionist and atheist who wrote a very very long and scathing post, calling Catholics and anyone who is Christian, every name in the book. He was on his high-horse, trying to act as if he was intelligent, but all he did was recite FALSE facts put out by Planned Parenthood. I wrote a post on my blog, debunking all his "facts"....but what good did it do, really?

Those who come to my blog are mostly Catholics, so they just agreed with my post. Those who come to my blog regularly but are pro-"choice" (we all know that they usually believe that the only choice is abortion), won't comment on any posts which I write that regard my pro-life stance.

Today, I wrote about how Rahm Emanuel, Chicago's new mayor, wants to force all Catholic Churches...all Churches actually, and non-profits, which we know will destroy them. That goes for Catholic Schools, Catholic hospitals, etc. More persecution against Christians.

It's almost impossible to get the truth out because those who are anti Catholic just don't want to hear it.

We are seeing what the Book of Revelations warned about. Persecution from all sides abounds, but it is especially worse when it comes from those who profess to be Christians.

We can be sure of one thing, Jesus never promised us a rose garden. Let us all pray that we will be given the strength to endure until the end.
