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.
