Bergoglio outdoes himself in Bergoglian mercy, this time back in his old stomping ground - Sunday 3rd to Saturday 9th of June

This will have to be one of my shorter entries, as I have fallen hopelessly behind schedule in my commentaries. I shall attempt to limit myself to this week's Bergoglian attack on the Church - every week has one - as well as the most important news otherwise.

As we are all well aware by now, Ireland is no longer a Catholic country, and in fact has not been for a while. In Ireland: A Chronology of De-Christianization, ChurchMilitant.tv attempted to chronicle various low-points which led to where we now find ourselves.

Some have not given up on saving the lives of unborn in Ireland, however, and Another big rig in Ireland mentions that there were many irregularities with the referendum, to the extent that some are calling it rigged. As proof of this, the author cites the large discrepancy between the polling data and the outcome. I have no doubt that the elitists would have rigged it had they felt it necessary, I just doubt that it would have been necessary to do so. This is, after all, the same country which voted for sodomitical unions just some 2 or so years ago. It is the same country which has a sodomite as its political ruler, an elected one at that to boot. Having voted for one of the 4 sins which cry out to Heaven, it is rather fanciful to think that the Irish would not want to complete the set and vote in another one.

As if to emphasise my point, Eamon Martin, an archbishop, came out after the referendum and said that abortion should be "safe and rare" - not necessarily a direct quote. He had to walk back those words but it is nonetheless instructive that a Catholic - and I use that word extremely loosely - prelate uses the language of abortionists in response to the referendum. The very fact that protection of the unborn was removed from the constitution does not in itself mean that the battle is over. His duty should have been to make it known that Catholics are obliged to oppose legalising abortion. Alas, we have one of our effeminates mouthing off support for the culture of death.

At this point I am forced to ask: Would anyone follow this guy? Part of the problem with NOChurch is that it has given us such spineless leaders that one is ashamed to say as a Catholic that these people represent any form of hierarchy. Can anyone actually see himself lining up behind Martin in a sort of campaign for the common good? Why is it that NOChurch popes think that being an effeminate non-believer is some sort of qualification for being a bishop? It's no wonder a lot of people think that priestesses  can be acceptable clerics.

It is not all doom and gloom though, and I was happy to see that the Portuguese parliament rejected euthanasia. It is a sad state of affairs though when it is the communists who come to the aid of  Catholic values in what was a Catholic country just 2 generations ago.

After much consternation, the Vatican released a document saying that the Church in Germany ought not to proceed with issuing heretical guidelines which would allow protestants to receive Holy Communion. The term "heretical", is of course, one I added myself, since this term seems to have been forbidden in the 1960s even for the most obvious of heresies. The Germans were, true to form, most displeased at having to hold off on their sacrilege jumboree. The point to take home in all of this, however, is that Bergoglio only informed the Germans that it was inopportune to do it, not that it was wrong. In other words, it is a bit too early to celebrate! Wait for this one to come back to the forefront when Bergoglio finds his moment!

Whether the prohibition of sacrilege at the hands ordained ministers is cause for celebration, is obviously another matter entirely, but these are desperate times, and there is so little good news to go around.

In the Diocese of Buffalo in the U.S., a couple which attends SSPX services was barred from acting as Godparents . So much for reaching out to the peripheries.

Staying on the theme of the U.S., but this time in the secular realm, we were informed by the 9-man junta which runs the country - the supreme court - that a  baker does not have to bake a cake for a sodomite pair  which enters his bakery. Most of us would call this common sense, but the decision is not the victory of common sense that some have made it out to be. From what I have been able to understand, the supreme court found that a lower court had been openly prejudicial against religious arguments in siding with the sodomites. My reading is that if the civil rights court had not been as openly hostile to the baker's religious motivations, the decision would have stood. At the very least, it is unlikely to think that 7 of the judges would have come to the baker's aid in those circumstances, although we can still hope it would have been a 5-4 decision on the side of sanity (or what's left of it in the Western world anyway).

Finally, I would like to conclude with another act of Bergoglian mercy. It turns out that there is a bishop in Argentina who did not see eye-to-eye with Bergoglio in his time there. This was the bishop of La Plata - apparently an important see in Argentina - Archbishop Héctor Rubén Aguer. This bishop reached the arbitrary age of 75, which NOChurch has set as the age of sending in one's resignation letter to the pope. To the surprise of nobody, the resignation was accepted immediately. This is where things really get interesting...

His hypocrisy  Bergoglio then had the bishop...

Time for everything but the dubia and more U.S. rogue state madness - Sunday 28th of August to Saturday 2nd of September

So, Bergoglio has a new book out. It comes from a series of interviews he gave to a French sociologist.

In it he reveals a lot of things, and finally puts paid to the idea that psychoananlysis has any value by revealing that he saw one for 6 months in his middle-age. The woman was Jewish and close to death, and true to form, Bergoglio obviously made no attempt to efffect a conversion.

The book itself is classic Bergoglio - scandal interwoven with heresy at every turn. I have not reat it,  but the excerpts are quite revealing. Given how long the interviews must have taken, it is further proof that Bergoglio is willing to take time to do everything apart from answering the dubia which were presented to him.

The week also revealed that not all Argentinian bishops are perverts, with Bishop Pedro Daniel Martínez Perea issuing directives which are completely in contradition to Amoris Laetitia in both letter and spirit. We all wonder what will happen to him. His priorities are very clear for all to see, and first among them is destroying the faith, or so it seems at least.

We also had more proof that the U.S. has become a rogue state, with its closure and raid of a Russian consulate in San Francisco. It is easy to get up in armss about the U.S. not following international laws, but truth be told this is a country that doesn't even follow it's own laws, so we should not surprised when it goes all rogue on other powerful nations.  The Russians, were as usual, composed in their reaction.

In the U.S., we also had Steve Bannon leaving the Donald Trump administration.  Some have taken this as a sign that he will enable to help Trump more from the outside by attacking his enemies than from the inside. We do wonder though, with virtually all the reasonable people in the original Trump administration gone, who is going to advise Trump  properly? He seems to be a hostage of the generals with whom he has surrounded himself, and for that he can blame nobody else but himself. The U.S. has this juvenile fascinattion with army-men, and so it seems with Trump, but this might just prove his undoing.

Then we have Hurricane Harvey hitting Texas. It's actually rather heart-warming seeing that Christian brotherhood has not been completely extinguished, given the lengths to which Americans went to help their countrymen.

Continuing on the theme of Bergoglio having time for everything but the dubia, he and the patriarch of Constantinople issued a joint statement - on the environment, of course.

True to form, Bergoglio also had time to appoint more anti-Catholic and anti-life people to the Pontifical Academy for Life.

Finally, we had news of a 'Catholic' school removing statues from its compound so as not to "intimidate" non-Catholics. Some see it as a logical end of Vatican II, and I do not disagree. The only real question is how come it took so long. In any case, they decided to piggyback on the general iconoclasm and monumental stupidity going on in the U.S., and get in on the act by showing their disdain for the Christian heritage.

All in all, another bad week for NOChurch, and another display of just how far the U.S. decay has come - charity in the face of adversity not withstanding.
