On A Catholic's Duty To Vote For Trump

 Yes, it's a duty.  I've written much about this before - see here and here.  Michael Voris a few days ago echoes these same concerns.  With so much at stake, it warrants much repetition.

If You Or Someone Whom You Know Has Been Injured By Abortion Pills

 There is help for you, or at least legal recourse for compensation for your injuries.  Certain sectors of Big Pharma are making millions off the administration of these pills.  The harmful effects of these drugs on women and girls seems to be of no consequence to these Big Pharma behemoths.  In addition to receiving some assistance, you also might help prevent other women from being similarly injured or even killed via these drugs.

My friend Missy Smith has launched an effort to bring a class action suit against Pfiser, a leading manufacturer of these deadly pills.  Please read and feel free to contact her for more information.  This is her site.

Holding The Archdiocese Of Baltimore To Account

 Pursuant to my post regarding the gender-fluid scandal within the schools of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, I made two phone calls.  The first was to the School of the Incarnation and the second was to the school office for the archdiocese.  Naturally no one in authority was available to talk with me, and I've no doubt others were likewise treated.  The reactions of the phone receptionists told me that my calls were not the first such calls they received.

Let's make sure that the calls continue.  Keep the pressure up.  We know from the Father Altman episode that the progressives are most diligent about pursuing their goals through copious phone calls.  Our service to Jesus Christ demands at least that.

I recorded my calls, and I post the videos of them below.  Notice that I advised them that the calls were being recorded; Maryland is a "two-consent" state when it comes to recording phone conversations.   After your own calls, feel free to share your experiences in the comments section.

Archdiocese Of Baltimore Foisting Gender Fluid Madness On Its Pupils

 Let that sentence sink in for a moment.  The Archdiocese isn't merely sitting by while outside forces are impinging upon their schools (as if such cowardice wouldn't be bad enough).  The Archdiocese is actually ordering its schools to use pronouns according to the wishes of mentally ill students.  Church Militant broke the story.

This crime is being perpetrated by two individuals.  The first is Denise Ball, Assistant Superintendent for the Archdiocese's schools.  The second is Benjamin Lorenz, assistant principal of the School of the Incarnation.  A third-grade pupil at that school imagines herself to be a boy.  Ball and Lorenz have been meeting frequently.  Ball has told other teachers at that school that they will be fired if they don't play along with the child's delusions and use masculine pronouns.  The principal, Nancy Baker, seems to be in cahoots and has been trying to convince parents to swallow this bile.

Apparently there are a number of parents outraged over this, but are afraid to come forward out of "fear of retaliation".  Of course this is why the Church suffers, when its adherents refuse to suffer for her.  If their fears center around their own children, may I suggest that the children might be better off if they were removed?  Homeschooling would be the ideal, but if that is impossible, I daresay that in this case, public schools would be superior to this Incarnation school.  At least in public school there would be no indication that the Church is on board with the promotion of perversions and gender confusion.  Let this supposedly Catholic school do without their tuition money and see if they might sing a different tune.

Lori has shown a regrettable tendency to look the other way when it comes to the gay infestation in his diocese.  The CM piece mentioned St Matthew's in Baltimore as being a gay-fomenting parish.  A short time ago, Lori requested that the pastor resign by September - that is, this month.  Has that happened?  What truly fascinates me right now is that I cannot find the parish's website.  What was the parish's site, http://www.stmattrc.org/, takes me to some auto loan site.  Now why is that?  They are listed on the Baltimore Archdiocese site: with Father Joseph Muth still listed as pastor.  Do we think he'll be gone in a week?  Are the archdiocesan personnel having fits that we just blew the cover off yet another capitulation to the gays?

The CM piece did omit mention of St Ignatius, that features a "gay-married" guy as head of its LGBTQ dating service ministry.  Until very recently this guy was parish council chair.  There are other gay-infested churches in Baltimore.

The CM piece notes how Lori bristled when President Trump called Baltimore a "dangerous and filthy place".  Well, maybe there's a reason why Lori was stung by that piece of truth.  Take a look at all those de facto gay dating services in the aforementioned parishes and you can see much of the filth is gurgling from those parishes.  When Catholic churches are putting forth this bile, with what appears to be tacit approval from the bishop, of course the spiritual ramifications will include violence in the streets.

Some action items that I might suggest, in addition to the daily Rosaries that we all need to be praying at this time, include:
  • Faithful Catholics local to the area, getting together and organizing so they can protest, form homeschooling coalitions, etc
  • Complete cessation of donations to any parish that has an "LGBTQ" cabal.  Let your pastor know that your dollars will not fund any of that pabulum.
  • The CM piece mentioned parents who are afraid.  They must stand up to their fears and stand up to the gay-nazi tyrants in their parish.  What kind of message does their timidity send to their children?
Note:  Here are phone numbers.  Call them.  Let them know that what they are doing is inherently immoral and will undermine the faith and morals of the students.  The school will try to pass the buck to the archdiocese (they did when I called them).  Let them know that does not excuse their obedience to an inherently immoral directive.  When you call the archdiocese, Ms. Ball will be unavailable (ahem!).  Leave a message anyway.

BREAKING! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has Died

 The pro-abortion Associate Justice of the Supreme Court died earlier today.  Of course the internet is all atwitter about the news.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is why ELECTIONS MATTER.  This is why each and everyone of us must vote to at least prevent harm done by a terrible candidate.  What do you think would be happening right now if Hillary Clinton was in the White House?  What do you think will happen if (God forbid) Joe Biden wins the White House?

Two things we need to do now:

  1. Pray for God's mercy on her immortal soul, that somehow she made an act of perfect contrition before she died.  In formally and materially cooperating in the mortal sins of baby-murder and sexual perversions by her votes, she herself is objectively guilty of serious sins.
  2. Pray that a worthy replacement for her may soon be nominated and confirmed very soon.

The Hard Truth About These Online Petitions

 Please pay close attention to this Vortex.  With all due respect to LifeSiteNews, their petition for Fr Altman may have the undesired effect of causing petition signers to believe that their signing of the petition is all that needs to be done for Father Altman.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Voris is also right in noting how many on the left are far more willing to work for their causes than are many good Catholics for the Church.

Must The Progressives Pollute Everything Of Beauty?

 Remember this trash from five years ago?  That was plopped upon us by Pope Francis' Pontifical Council for Culture.  Well, I guess that is their idea of culture.  Then there's this from a few weeks ago, when Fr Robert Walsh dared to poke fun at the Holy Face of Jesus.

While that last stunt was the literal denigration of Jesus in favor of the covid idol, the "black lives matter" idol also received worship at the expense of Our Lord.  The now-misnamed Pontifical Academy for Life profaned a replica of Michelangelo's  Pieta statue by slathering black paint over the image of Jesus. These so-called "social justice warriors" are showing their true colors by blaspheming our Lord to further their warped goals.

Therefore, the short answer to the question in this post's title is "yes".  They must because that is the fruit of their depraved ideologies.  Forsaking Jesus, who is the Way, Truth and Life, they also forsake Him who is the source and inspiration of truly beautiful art, music, culture.  They mock and hate our Lord so they must totally trash anything of truth and beauty that gives Him glory.  They take the pristine and render it putrid.  They take the inspirational and render it insipid.  They take truth and mutilate it into trash.  Lovely music becomes lurid.

I regret to opine that while this cabal, headed by the pope, runs the Vatican, we can only expect to see more eyesores and outrages.

The Pope Wants Good Vibes!

 Have this playing in the background as you read the rest of the post below.

Apparently while the pope was spouting off some more environmentalism screed, he asked for prayer and/or "good vibes".  After that, everyone dutifully snickered.  Har-dee har har!  He asked that God would bless people but then refused to give a papal blessing.

So on one hand the pope thinks prayer to God and "good vibes" are equivalent.  In other words, he trivializes God's power.  But on the other hand, he claims that the Wuhan virus is nature's response to "climate change".  He ascribes an awful lot of power to that now, doesn't he?

Does he think "good vibes" will fix the pandemic?
