Come back Joseph Goebbels, all is forgiven ...

The news blackout is a powerful weapon that is being increasingly used by the masters of the secular asylum to keep the masses compliant.  I recently, as a result of complete serendipity, found myself talking to a senior executive of the BBC.  On condition of unanimity, she was completely open about the fact that news blackouts were blatantly used to massage the news. 

For example, a couple of weeks ago, over a million anti-gay "marriage" protesters took over the centre of Paris. The authorities responded by tear-gassing women and children and old men. Ninety-nine percent of the populace would be excused for being completely unaware that it had taken place; our secular liberal masters had ordered a complete news blackout of what was probably the largest popular demonstration ever seen in the French capital.

Another news blackout is currently in place, the subject this time is one Kermit Gosnell.  Who is Kermit Gosnell you may well ask.  Kermit is an abortionist on trial in Philadelphia for murdering eight people; if found guilty, he will be officially a serial killer.  Note for comparison, the death toll of the Boston bombers was three, and just reflect on how much news coverage they generated.  Kermit's method of abortion was to cause the child to be born alive (often into the WC apparently) and then decapitate it.  One child was so big, Kermit allegedly quipped, before beheading the little boy, "he could walk me to the bus stop".  Kermit is on trial for the murder of seven babies, and for killing one woman following a botched abortion. 

So why the news blackout? - simple, Kermit is an abortionist.  In the secular liberal asylum, the sins of abortionists must be covered up, just as the sins of the predatory sodomites among the clergy were covered up by our post-Conciliar "shepherds". 

However, the news blackout is a blunt weapon and sometimes needs to be used more selectively. There is no blanket news blackout, for example, covering the recent tragic death of an Asian lady in Ireland following the Irish medical profession's refusal to abort her baby. This story is being milked by the media notwithstanding the fact that there is not a scrap of evidence to suggest that the refusal had any relevance to her tragic death. The implication is that Ireland would be a safer place for women if it legalised abortion.

However, a more selective news blackout is in place around this story to conceal the fact that the maternal mortality rate in the UK (where abortion is not only legal but industrialised) is twice that of the Republic.  Indeed, a pregnant woman, given the choice, would be well advised to have her baby in Ireland, given that she has double the chance of dying in childbirth in the UK.  Further, Ireland's infant mortality rate, according to the latest 2010 figures, is nearly 20% lower than the UK's, so, not only she but also her child would have a better chance of survival. 

Secular liberals, in their diabolical crusade to advance their culture of death, are clearly more than happy to climb over the corpses of dead women to get to the promised land.

Ministry of the Bleeding Obvious

The MBO recently announced that those who jump out of airplanes without parachutes are at significant risk of injury.  This announcement had me reflecting: why is it that our forefather didn’t feel the need to spend millions on research projects to prove the bleeding obvious, while the leaders of the current secular asylum reject the bleeding obvious even when it is backed up by the findings of research projects costing million?

In a historic study of children raised by homosexual parents, the University of Texas has comprehensively squashed the patent absurdity that such children suffer no disadvantages when compared to children raised by their married mother and father.  Just published in the journal of Social Science Research, the most careful, rigorous, and methodologically sound study ever conducted on this issue found numerous and significant differences - with the outcomes for children of homosexuals rated "suboptimal" in almost all of the forty categories measured.

Just two examples: the children of homosexual parents were ten times more likely to have been sexually abused by a parent or other adult caregiver, and were four times more likely to have been forced to have sex against their will - that’s “raped” in your and my books.

What a surprise!  Who would have thought that people suffering from a sexual pathology that has given us over forty percent of serial murderers, nearly ninety percent of convicted paedophiles, a significant percent of the leadership of the Nazi party, Count Giles de Rais, virtually the entire officer core of the Storm Troopers, Countess Elizabeth Bathory, some twenty percent of the Nazi death camp’s most sadistic guards and such sane pronouncement as “I’m a woman trapped in a man’s body” – Oh, and AIDs of course (30 million dead so far and still counting) - should turn out, all things being equal, not to be winning too many parent of the year awards?

The MBO will be telling us next that the clinically obese don’t win too many Olympic medals.

The Call to Beauty - An Interview with Perhaps One of the Best Popes We Didn't Get

"It has a beauty to it that is beyond discussion, least to reasonable people."

An interview with Raymond Cardinal Burke:


Dogmas from the Secular Asylum

The leaders of the secular asylum have given us in just over a decade: the millennium bug, we’re all going to die from swine flue, we’re all going to die from bird flue, global warming and the wonders of sodomite parenting.

Oh, and, I nearly forgot, Darwin’s 200th birthday.  Darwin was some chap whose followers believe that if one leaves a bucket of sterile mud on one’s patio for a decent enough time, one could return to find it had written the complete works of Shakespeare.  Although they prefer to call the sterile mud, “primeval soup” - the “soup” bit apparently makes all the difference.

The Amoeba Dubia’s genome has 670 billion units of DNA, or base pairs. The genome of a cousin, Amoeba Proteus, has a mere 290 billion base pairs, making it 100 times larger than the human genome!  Darwinists believe that one of these, what they like to call, “primitive life forms” (that incidentally also has the ability to reproduce themselves - and the “will” to do so) may have been created by electricity striking their “primeval soup”.  As a creation theory it’s on a par with such theories as, “the world was created by the copulating of two giant raccoons.”

I used to test batteries by sticking my tongue on the terminals: who knows, I may personally be responsible for kick-starting several new life forms!

Why socialism can never work … whether it emanates from state or Church.

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan".  All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (Substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all)

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.  As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

The second test average was a D!  No one was happy.  When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.  To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.  Could not be any simpler than that.

  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

  2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

  3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

  4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

  5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Can you think of a reason for not sharing this?

Quote of the month:

"We can easily understand a child for being afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when adults are afraid of the light" - Plato

“Here’s hoping the next Deli Lama isn't a Buddhist.”

One of those things that always amuse me during every interregnum, is the spectacle of liberal Catholics, that is the faction who keep their centre of consciousness firmly fixed six inches below their belt button, queuing up to tell us that what we really need is a liberal pope who will drive a coach and horses through the Church’s 2000 year’s old teaching on such matters as artificial contraception, abortion and sodomy.  If you browse the comments on any site commenting on the recent interregnum, you will find around a third of the annotations come from such folk, who, so drunk on their own importance, have failed to notice that they have staggered into the wrong church.

Given that this has never happened in 2000 years, it’s a bit like hoping that the next Deli Lama won’t be a Buddhist.  One would have thought that most people would be bright enough to realize that one needs to be a Catholic to be elected pope.  It’s a sort of minimal requirement for job applicants, like having good vision helps if you want to be an airline pilot, or, you should be able to swim if you apply for a job as a life-saver on Brighton beach.

Indeed, there are theologians who would argue that if a pope was to attempt to do any such thing, he would ipso facto cease to be the pope.  Indeed, sedevacantist Catholics believe that this has already happened.  They believe that the post-Conciliar popes have not been true popes and we are thus in a 40-year long interregnum.  Whist I believe sedevacantist are mistaken, I also acknowledge that they are in good faith and that there are some formidable intellects and scholars in their camp.

Tens of thousands of our forefathers in faith were beheaded, devoured by wild beasts, burned alive, stoned to death, gored by wild bulls, thrown into quick-lime, slow-roasted over fires, stabbed to death, suffocated, sewn into sacks with poisonous reptiles, strangled, buried alive, racked, torn with hooks, shot with arrows, rolled in pitch and set on fire, frozen to death, hanged and pressed to death under weights, rather than offer one grain of incense to the gods and idols of false religions.  Yet JP2 publicly venerated the Koran and invoked the protection of St John the Baptist upon Islam, whilst B16 has exhorted us to respect false religions on numerous occasions.

One is forced to assume that our post-Conciliar popes believe that most of the saints and martyrs we venerate at Mass where unhinged fanatics.   Surely, in these circumstances, one would have to be particularly dense, not to have just a little bit of empathy for where sedevacantists are coming from.

Amateur cannon lawyers from the Neo-Catholic camp, always eager to dam anyone who questions the latest novelties; have no doubt already written them all off as schismatics.  I prefer to see them as brothers-in-arms, who, in the fight for tradition and in the fog of battle, have sadly taken a wrong turning; like a platoon, who in a daring foray, have just captured an empty enemy gun post; they may have wasted time and ammo, but there is no doubt whose side they’re on.

Life in South Africa

Catholic Conversation Stoppers

Some time in 2011, Anne and I and one of our grandchildren were flying over a remote areas of Kenya in one of those tiny four-seater airplanes (Cessnas I believe they are called).

The pilot was an elderly white Kenyan of Scottish extraction, with all that dourness and reticent that is supposed to characterise his race.  At one point in the flight, he broke his silence with, "Kenya is heading for a demographic disaster.  The average Kenyan woman has six [if my memory serves] children."

"Oh," I responded, "I can't say too much, because I had eight."  This was greeted with some unintelligible guttural noises from Mr McTavish before slumping back into his seemingly habitual broody silence.

It moments like this when you realise that there is an unbridgeable gulf set between genuine Catholics and contemporary secular culture - we are in it for good or ill, but certainly not of it.  I wonder if any of our readers have their own examples of Catholic Conversation Stoppers.
