Will The Snakes Return To Ireland?

It is said that when St. Patrick commenced his evangelization of Ireland in the 5th century, he drove out all the serpents that inhabited the island.  Many took it as a sign that the saint (and others to come after him) would drive out idolatry and many other evils - including homosexuality - from Ireland.  As today's Vortex relates, the referendum vote in two days could spell the end of Christianity in Ireland.  A country that did much to preserve western civilization from hordes of barbarians will decide in two days if they indeed have degraded from Christianity to barbarism.

If they go the way of perversion and immorality, they will in fact be inviting the deadly vipers to return to their once-Christian land and spread their deadly poison.  Sadly, not only are Ireland's Catholic bishops neglecting to speak forcefully about the proper Catholic vote in this referendum, but some are actually playing the role of Judas and are shilling for the mutation of the definition of marriage in Irish law.  Bishop Donal McKeown of Derry stated that Catholics "in good conscience" vote to legitimize "gay marriage".  Of course he's dead-wrong.  No one with a true Catholic conscience will vote for this measure.  I cannot see how this isn't rank heresy on McKeown's part.

Of course we must also ask just what kind of signal does the pope's appointment of Timothy Radclifee send to the people of Ireland as they prepare to go to the polls in two days.  In 2013, he wrote of gay sexual relationships, that is, sodomy, "it can be expressive of Christ’s self-gift. We can also see how it can be expressive of mutual fidelity, a covenantal relationship in which two people bind themselves to each other for ever."  This was in a publicly available report, published well in advance fo this appointment.

Let's offer our Rosaries for a Christian outcome to the vote in a few days.

  1. If you noticed in this Vortex episode (and the one that followed this one today as well) MV shined the light on the 'Atlantic Philanthropies' group that is behind all of the 'change' they want to see happen in the culture (and the Church as well) Lots of money pouring in from this group to be sure. The Catholic media needs to shine the light on this group. Where the light shines it helps to dispel the darkness. Wondering if our friend George Soros has anything to do with this group:) ?
