The schism that isn't, and a narrative so deceptive it is scary - Sunday 1st to Saturday 7th of October

We shall start with Cardinal Burke stating that the SSPX is in schism. These words he uttered a while back and they are, of course, regrettable. Normally, what the Church's top canonist says should be respected, but as the Vatican actually has the Ecclesia Dei dealing with the SSPX, and that commission has always insisted that the SSPX is not in schism, we can safely disregard his words on this one.

The curious thing about the SSPX's so-called schism is that nobody can actually pinpoint what it is they do that would cause them to be in shcism, especially now that their bishops have had their excommunications lifted. ChurchMilitant.tv was ecstatic at hearing the cardinal using the word schism, and they put it that the cardinal had "confirmed" that the SSPX was in schism, as if comments made at a gathering outside his official statements and offical role count as confirmation for anything. The only confirmation we received was that Cardinal Burke does not much like the SSPX, but that is not exactly news, now is it? As hopeful as we may be on Cardinal Burke, we must realise that he is a Vatican II bishop and his idea is that Vatican II itself was not bad but that it was corrupted, a hard idea to sell given that the very people who participated in the council are those who implemented it.

It is almost difficult to imagine that there is bad stuff which goes outside the Church given how bad things within the Church have gone, but for sure bad stuff abounds...

The most widely-publicised tragedy of the week was the shooting in Las Vegas which left hundreds injured and around 60 killed. The most remarkable thing about this incident is that the official narrative - now narratives since they keep changing all the time - is so absurd that nobody who spends 10 minutes examining the inconsistencies can end up believing it. There are doubts about the identity of the shooter, whether there was one or more, the timeline of events, people who were supposed to have been killed being alive, violations of such basic things as securing scenes of investigation and a whole lot more.

In fact, pretty much the only part of the narrative that seems to be truthful is the notion that bullets move faster than people.

My attitude towards conspiracy theories is that there is no conspiracy theory that I am not willing to entertain, so long as its basic premises make sense. However, one does not even have to be in the least open to cospiracy theories to realise that the story that the public is being fed is completely off. Some links at the bottom of this article point out some of the inconsistencies.

It also happened that Catalonia had a referendum. The Spanish government interfered in a heavy-handed way, which was very bad for public relations. However, it seems as though the Catalonian government is the one which has come out worst off in this scenario. They obviously pushed the situation to a head without any reason for doing that and the repercussions have not been to their expectation. The Spanish government responded by making it easier to move businesses out of Catalonia and some big financial institutions have already moved their headquarters.

As usual, the hypocrisy of the EU and the Western states regarding independence movements was telling. The EU was more or less completely silent, the same EU which has encuraged/condemned independence movements  around the world, alternating condemnation with encouragement based on its own or the US foreign policy interest, or in many instances, simly against the interests of Russia or its allies.

Returning to the mess in the Church, Bergoglio urged the Church to join the cultural revolution. As I have remarked many times before, the man does not even try to hide that he is an enemy of the Church. He simply seems to have nothing good to say about the Church, Her mission or Her teaching.

 

 

 

He that is of a perverse heart, shall not find good: and he that perverteth his tongue, shall fall into evil

The words are taken from Proverbs 17:19:

He that is of a perverse heart, shall not find good: and he that perverteth his tongue, shall fall into evil

In fact, the whole of Proverbs 17 could be about the perverted man who we call pope, Jorge Bergoglio.

This piece grew out of spone spontaeous thoughts I had to the day's links on the 25th of October, yet another day in the long line of occasions Bergoglio has used to belittle Church teaching, this time indirectly by attacking those who defend it.

Given Bergoglio's latest cringeworthy rant against those who attempt to live by Christ's teaching, titled  “Beneath rigidity there is something else, there is often wickedness” by Vatican Insider, I must, somewhat reluctanctly, agree with Mundabor that Bergoglio is a "lewd old man". It is a tag he has used multiple times which I have not been keen on endorshing in the past but the man's incessant insults aimed at those who try to lead pure lives hints at grave moral deficiency in the man.

There is something deeply sinister about a man who seems to think that people who act virtuously are hypocrites, or that there is "often wickedness" in them. This seems to be a man attempting to justify his own perversions. At the very least, these words betray a most perverted outlook on life and virtue.

We are well within our rights to wonder whether Bergoglio's attack on chastity is not because he himself has issues with upholding sexual morality on a personal level.

It is something I have been disinclined towards, but now we must openly ask it.

If he does not have problems on a personal level, then his attack on morality is all the more bizarre and inexcusable and he is a fouler man for it.

Bergogio's attack on the Church and God's plan for marriage continued today, with the words:

At times we have proposed a far too abstract and almost artificial theological ideal of marriage, far removed from the concrete situations and practical possibilities of real families. This excessive idealisation, especially when we have failed to inspire trust on God’s grace, has not helped to make marriage more desirable and attractive, but quite the opposite.

I must ask again just who he is attacking, just what is so abstract with the idea that marriage is for life, just what is artificial about it when Genesis tells us that God made us man and woman, to which The Word Incarnate adds "What God has joined together, let no man put asunder".

That is not even the worst thing he has said this week. No, that award would have to go to his invention of a Novus Ordo heaven, of which he states:

What is the Kingdom of God?  Well, perhaps the Kingdom of God is a very well-made structure, everything tidy, organization charts all done, everything and the person who does not enter (into this structure) is not in the Kingdom of God. No, the same thing can happen to the Kingdom of God as happens to the Law: unchanging, rigidity…    the Law is about moving forward, the Kingdom of God is moving forward, it is not standing still. What’s more: the Kingdom of God is re-creating itself every day.

Granted, the week is not over yet, and there is more time for the man who Hilary White has apparently affecionately named "Pope Humblebrag" to outdo himself in more gibberish. Mundabor, without much effort, explains that the concept of an ever-evolving Heaven is a great absurdity.

This is from the same man who has admitted that he prays that people may fall into sin if they seem too sure of their virtue. Granted, we canot be sure if he actually prays, so we must take his comment with a good measure of salt, but what we do know for sure is that he was not ashamed to say that he prays for sins to befall other people, simply because those people seem to practice virtue. Mind you, this is the same Bergoglio who answers "Who am I to judge" when asked about the presumably sodomitical priest who he put in charge of his living quarters. Evidently, the man's capacity to judge only activates itself upon those who aim to follow the ways of God.

Dovetailing to my initial point: Bergoglio's attack on the Church's teaching on morality is incessant, as is his promotion of all manner of actual sins (discounting the many false sins he admonishes). He seems to have a special soft spot for sexual deviancy, and also seems to surround himself with perverts of all kinds. 

It is significant that he does not seem to believe that God's grace can help us overcome sins, and seems to assume that those who act virtuous are hypocrites with a hidden wickedness. Nor surprisingly, perhaps, this seems to be the sentiment of Martin Luther, the heresiarch that Bergoglio will be celebrating within a week. They say "great minds think alike", and the same would seem to apply to lewd heretics, a group to which Bergolio certainly seems to belong.

A man who speaks with such venom against those who are trying to follow the way of Christ in a very hostile culture cannot be a good man. Above all, he cannot be a man who aspires to good by way of Christ. Whatever notion of good such a man has would have to be a twisted one.

Whether Bergoglio he practices his evident lewdness or not (and with whom) we ought not really to speculate, but that his mind seeks to entertain all sorts of perverted notions is certainly not up for debate, not any longer.
