"For Greater Glory" Thoughts [Ann Barnhardt Movie Review]
Barnhardt Capital Management ^ | June 2. 2012 | Ann Barnhardt

"For Greater Glory" Thoughts Part 1

I saw the movie "For Greater Glory" yesterday. I recommend seeing it. It was quite good, although it didn't go far enough in driving home the brutality of the Cristero War. It was more than people being hung and shot. It was rape and unspeakable torture - and please never forget that rape is a near-universal phenomenon in war, particularly amongst non-Christians and anti-Christians. The rape is probably the thing I dread the most about the upcoming war here in the U.S. This is going to be different. It isn't going to be armies of conscripted men in organized campaigns. This is going to be hell unleashed - the demonic against absolutely everything, in a war of attrition.

The hip-hop culture is one of the most satanic, brutal, disgusting collections of human foulness ever seen on earth. When I look back at history and see that men in relatively benign and stable cultures gleefully turned to rape as soon as the Rule of Law disappeared and they knew that they could get away with it, the pangs of dread in the pit of my stomach begin. The hip-hop culture is like a foreign exchange program from hell itself. Those people are so demonically influenced and their humanity so reduced that they are like ravenous animals just waiting behind a grate to be loosed on the populace - and this culture has all been cultivated and brought to its satanic fullness before the hot war even breaks out. When you look at rap music, with its satanic, pornographic lyrics and culture of near-constant animalistic, inhuman sex, and you combine that with the fact that many hip-hop culture men who have spent time in prison are already very comfortable with homosexual sex acts and homosexual rape, you realize that everyone will be a rape target - women, children (including infants) and men. If the Mexican Federales, who were mostly men raised in a far more stable culture than today's inner-cities, raped nuns without hesitation, then you all need to face and prepare for the reality of the far-worse hell that is coming soon to a subdivision near you.

If you want a good run-down of the Cristero War, here is a link to an excellent sermon from a Tridentine Mass priest on the subject. It is about 30 minutes long. When you're done listening to this, please remember that this was a run-of-the-mill Sunday sermon. This is what Sunday sermons are supposed to be. Now compare this to the intellectually insipid and/or clownish pablum of most Novus Ordo homilies and sermons, and certainly the unquantifiable stupidity of Superfun Rockband church "messages", and hopefully, again, you will begin to understand what it is that you are missing - what has been robbed from you.

CLICK HERE FOR AUDIOSANCTO.ORG SERMON The Cristeros: Will We See Another Catholic Persecution?

That sermon was preached on October 9, AD 2011, and already it is stunningly prophetic.

But before we go into the direct correlations, I looked up Roger Ebert's review of "For Greater Glory" yesterday, just out of curiosity. Ebert is a Chicago uber-leftist who, after reading his review of the movie, I now know is literally brainwashed and no longer able to think or reason clearly - and that's always scary to see. This is a consistent problem with uber-leftists in the end-stages of their "revolutions", as Marxism and totalitarianism DEMAND that its sycophants deny reality and suspend all logical thought. To wit, Ebert. He actually gave the movie a good review, but then made the jaw-droppingly idiotic criticism that the only religion portrayed was Catholicism. It was all Catholic, Catholic, Catholic. There was no mention of any of the world's other religions, and thus the movie had no "credibility." How dare anyone release a movie in which Catholicism and Catholics are the subject? Ebert criticised "For Greater Glory" because it did not present the Cristero War from the perspective of the Buddhists, Hindus and Baha'i in Mexico in 1926. You know, because a declared war against the CATHOLIC CHURCH and CATHOLICS in a nation that was more than 95% Catholic should, in proper self-loathing political correctness, IGNORE and REMOVE all references to CATHOLICISM.

Do you see how far gone these people are? It is no longer sufficient to merely HATE Jesus Christ and His Church. No, we are now to the point where the Marxists demand that everyone deny the very existence of Christ and His Church. Jesus Christ is now "he who must not be named." I wonder if Ebert said the same thing about "Kundun"? Shouldn't the 1997 biopic of the 14th Dalai Lama have been told from the perspective of the Maori animists, or Mormons living in Tibet, you know, in order to be ... credible? It was all Buddhists, Buddhists, Buddhists. Right, Ebert? Oh, but wait. That's different, because only Christianity is to be reviled and purged from history in a self-loathing nutty-fit.

Well, I guess when everything you believe in is a lie from the blackest pit of hell, the Truth of Heaven is the enemy, and must be quashed. Right, Ebert? Hey, if anyone wants to make a cool billion dollars, all you need to do is make a movie about the Cristero War with no Catholics. Ebert will give you four stars. If you make the heroic victors muslim, I'll bet you'll win the Oscar for Best Picture!
-----------------------------------------------
"For Greater Glory" Thoughts Part 2

Finally, just a bit on the parallels. Rush Limbaugh remarked on this on Thursday or Friday, and he is right. There is nothing new under the sun. What the satanic Obama regime is doing is exactly what every other Communist and proto-Communist tyranny has tried to do: destroy the Catholic Church. The French tried it during the French Revolution and before they were done, 450,000 people were dead. The Bolshevik Mexican government patterned their tactical progression against the Church off of the French genocide of the Vendee. The Obama regime is patterning itself off of the French, Soviet, German, Chinese and Mexican wars against the Church.

All of these satanic tyrannies required priests and bishops to swear an oath of loyalty to the regime or the revolution or be killed. What this accomplished was setting up a faux-Church that was nothing more than a temporary client and propaganda arm of the government in order to mollify the people and consolidate power before completely exterminating all appearances of religion. Remember, satan does not share power. Communists demand TOTAL fealty.

The interesting thing in the Communist-Obamaist overthrow of the U.S. is the fact that oaths are meaningless in this culture, already massively degraded and degenrated by Communist infiltration over the last 50 years. So, the Obama regime is probably never going to summon the Catholic bishops to the oval office and make them swear a loyalty oath to Obama, his revolutionary government, or anything else.

But don't be fooled. There is still a juring (oath-taking) process, it is just being presented in a more subtle form. Can you guess what it is?

That's right. It is the HHS mandates. The bishops won't have to SAY that they swear loyalty to the Communist-Obamaist regime. No, the bishops will be expected to assent to the "revolution" by the act of assenting to the regime mandating that all citizens pay for contraception and abortion. Maybe the bishops will get their little "exceptions", but if the faithful have to subsidize child killing and the bishops go along claiming that their little "exception" for themselves is sufficient, it will be a de facto juring. It will be an underhanded demonstration of loyalty to the Communist-Obamaist revolution. If you think about it, you realize that it is exactly the same thing as what the Mexican government demanded the Cristeros say in order to show their loyalty: "Muerte a Cristo Rey", that is, "Death to Christ the King."

Any assent or capitualtion to the HHS mandate is exactly the same thing as shouting "DEATH TO CHRIST THE KING" at high noon in the town square. Excatly the same. Since most of the bishops today are sleazy little men, educated and steeped in Marxism and homosexualism, and ambitious for political power and career advancement, they may just be stupid enough to think that they can get away with politicking their way through this, claiming that a narrow exemption for parish and chancery staff while throwing the laity to the wolves will be able to be spun as a victory.

If that's what they think, they would be dead wrong. You don't treat or parley with satan. You don't "listen" so that "compromise" can be struck with hell itself. The only satisfactory outcome is total and complete victory, and the only reply to the Obama regime is

VIVA CRISTO REY! QUE VIVA MI CRISTO! QUE VIVA MI REY!

(Look good and hard at this picture, bishops and priests. This is how a MAN OF GOD dies. Emphasis on the MAN.)

Today, June 2nd, is the Anniversary of Enrique Gorostieta’s (played by Andy Garcia in “For Greater Glory”) death. He was 38 years old.

Requiescat In Pacem to the brave Cristeros who fought unto death for Religious Liberty.

I like Ann Barnhardt, BUT

“For Greater Glory” is a movie that I will not watch.

And from what I got from her article, that dog won’t hunt here in TX.

Not going to happen. Too many guns. Too many rednecks, oilies and clod farmers for that to happen.

I believe that you're right. If her predictions are at all true, it will likely be an urban thing. Great opportunity to sort out and eliminate the "chaff," by the way.

I saw the movie last night. It was good in that it tended to reinforce the idea that a person has to stand up for what he believes is right.

Remember Obama saying something like “If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon”? He stole that line from this movie which he must have seen several weeks ago (It was released in Mexico on April 20.)

I wish I could be a certain as you regarding how an armed conflict might pan out. Mexico at that time had lived through a series of revolutions and people still had the will to take up arms and get into another war. Here in the U.S. the people talk a good war but - for the most part - haven’t lived through one ‘up close and personal.’ Until I see government agents listed as an endangered species I’ll reserve judgement on how I believe it will come out.

I hope you’re right though.

I remain unconvinced that this is still our mother’s era, where being armed Texas style could change outcomes to favor the citizenry. Your universities have drones all over the skies in every region of the US, and this is before you count the intelligence agencies and the military. Who even knows what sort of new and secret urban warfare science is yet out there. This against revolvers in purses and hunting guns in pick ups makes for a new era technological challenge to the old school Saturday night rumble. Quite a gap problem.

I agree with you. We’ve allowed our rights to be taken away a little at a time. This won’t be like the 1700s where it took the enemy a month to ship an army across the Atlantic. Now, the enemy is right here and much better armed.

Yes indeed. Tracked by your cell phones, tracked by video cams, emails monitored by the feds, water usage and electricity usage tracked. No privacy, freedom rapidly becoming the great illusion.

And it’s public knowledge that one A$$HAT at the top is reviewing the naughty and nice list to issue kill orders.

Coming soon to a state / region near us all.

Groups Concerned Over Arming of Domestic Drones:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2887458/posts

Chief Deputy Randy McDaniel of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in Texas told The Daily that his department is considering using rubber bullets and tear gas on its drone.

“Those are things that law enforcement utilizes day in and day out and in certain situations it might be advantageous to have this type of system on the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle)” .

The movie was excellent, but one thing that struck me was that so few people in the US even know that Mexico went through a Communist revolution in the early part of the 20th century (and is still suffering from the economic problems created by this). Even fewer even realize that the anti-Catholic laws were officially revoked only about five years ago.

They ceased to be enforced, but they remained on the books. In fact, I remember that as late as the 1990s, Catholic clergy were officially prohibited from wearing clerical dress on the street in Mexico.

The Catholic Church is always the one that the State sees as its great enemy and will always be the first target of its attacks. In the US, the Church is already very fragmented because of the left-wing subversion of Vatican II, so the State clearly thinks it will be a weaker opponent. That may be true, and I don’t think we’re going to get to the point of killings and torture because simple economic threats will probably be enough to bring most of the US bishops into line.

My husband and I saw the movie yesterday. I came away totally shocked that this happened as recent as the late 1920’s. I also realized why Pope. Benedict’s recent trip to Mexico was so emotionally well-received by millions.

Most Americans (and probably 99 per cent of the keyboarders) wouldn't know where to turn or what to do if their water got shut off. Never mind when, where, how, and on whom to exercise the Second Amendment rights.

Sixty million American babies have been massacred and nobody's fired a shot. God may help and Heaven may preserve us in spite of that, but I wouldn't count on it.

My father-in-law was in the weapons business 40 years. I know many of his old employees and friends. They will not be turned.

Some of my OKie friends in McAlester and some of my Texas friends in Amarillo supply the talons for our birds. I know the type of people who furnish such stuff. They are still patriots.

Is that because you don’t “like” the Catholic church? I am a Catholic and I always hear from those I had considered to be perfectly reasonable people things like “I hate the Catholic Church” from people who have never darkened the door of the Catholic church and have no clue what they are talking about. I have seen ridiculous lies on the internet about nuns held in dungeons in Europe, etc.
My Protestant neighbor volunteered she is grateful that the Catholic church is holding the line on infanticide and homosexuality, when almost no one else is.
No one is willing to die for anything these days. But they may find life is not worth living as a slave where nothing is sacred and satan rules. There are fates worse than death

Not going to happen. Too many guns. Too many rednecks, oilies and clod farmers for that to happen.

Taking that as a given, I take no comfort in it, because the evil is being advanced stealthily. We must always remember that the vast majority of Americans do not grasp the issue as most of us do.

Even the phrase "render unto Caesar..." has lost its impact since the list of Caesar's now is virtually infinite and the list of God's is constantly shrinking into irrelevance.

Shooting at them won't change that list. The very first thing that needs to happen is that the CHURCH presents HER Declaration of Independence to the Beast Government. Post a list of the specific and detailed usurpations. Beyond that, preach it from the pulpit every Sunday. Make clear the existential threat that we can see. Many do not yet see it.

We can be encouraged that 43 lawsuits were filed against Obama. But that has had no impact on public perception and discourse (that I am aware of), and will have no effect on moving the political process in the short term.

It's up to the laity (of all religious persuasions) to push our spiritual authorities to do the work that only they can do. We must have their backs covered when they nail the Declaration to the Court House door.

Agreed. By destroying the family unit, by destroying independence of action, by destroying morality, by dividing the citizens against each other. Those who seek to destroy this nation are servants of the father-of-lies.

I was puzzled by the author’s summoning up the horrors of “rap culture” in this discussion of a movie based on official government attacks, carried out by Federal troops, on Catholic citizens. The very thing that makes the Mexican comparison so frightening is that Mexico was not a state without the rule of law, such as some African state that hasn’t known the rule of law since the colonial powers left, but that all of these things went through their legislature and through elected officials and were enforced by the military. And that is exactly what would happen here.

I don’t think our big problem is going to be armed thugs rampaging in the streets, but a government that already has enormous power and the ability to simply shut things down and go after the people or groups it wants through official means. And I don’t think individual weaponry is going to be much use against this.

It’s possible that Fossil knows many decent military folks, who would risk it all by defying an unjust order, but I think the great majority of them would simply do what they were told. And don’t forget that Bill Clinton did a lot to reshape the military and make it a more politicized culture, and Obama has taken this into overdrive and I would suspect has driven many of the better people out of their military careers and dissuaded others from going in. I think his “gayification” of the armed forces was aimed at this, and you will find that the new PC military is not automatically going to be on the side of the citizens any longer.

It is true that the brutality of rap culture has probably encouraged more brutal attitudes among the young male population (of any color) and that this group in the military might be more inclined to commit atrocities. But it would be in the context of official government-sponsored action and not Third World style rioting.

That said, I don’t think Obama and the left are going to have to resort to violence to suppress the Church, but will rely on economic and legal attacks that will basically harass it out of the public square. Probably religious worship will be permitted, but all other Church activities will be suppressed. I also suspect that the left is working hard to encourage a schism where a “Patriotic Catholic Church” in the Chinese style will be born, and then will be given all the property and institutions of the actual Catholic Church and will be treated by the US government as the genuine Church. Henry VIII did this very effectively through the creation of the Church of England (although back in those days, he did have to use a bit of official torture and brutality to get his point across, even though most of the bishops were quite agreeable to going along with him).

I did not realise the movie was "Catholic".

I know about Mexican politics and culture. I know enough of the History of Mexico to despise what is being forced on the citizen of Mexico.

A fine lady that I went to church with, was run out of Mexico with her family during Poncho Villa's rampage. She owned/operated a cotton gin here for many many years.

The "Left" has been successful in co-opting the Catholic Church in countries in Central America. Example: the Liberation Theology folks in Nicaragua, which enabled the Sandanistas to come to power. I was toe to toe with their surrogates in NM during that era. I know what lefties really are. No illusions.

Yes. Death by a thousand cuts. I am reminded of a Flannery O'Conner line... "She sometimes thought she could be a martyr if they killed her real quick"

Or was the “dog” that wouldn’t hunt Ann Barnhart’s “coming war”? Maybe I misunderstood, I read situations wrong all the time.

Anyway, yes the Liberation Theology is completely heathen and not Christian and yes, the Catholic church was deliberately infiltrated by satan’s minions in the form of communists , homosexuals and pedophiles. Still a remnant of truth struggled through the filth and remains.

Military action against citizens is not even remotely my point nor the cause for my skepticism. I just look around and see modern reality that these are days of remote control, a new tactic that delivers overwhelming force that can make guns and clips look obsolete.

The photo says it all. The true story of the Cristeros is stunning and heartbreaking.

one thing that struck me was that so few people in the US even know that Mexico went through a Communist revolution

And I am sure that even fewer know that the US Government supplied the Mexican Government with weapons, ammo, pilots, and air support against the Cristeros.

Plus on top of it, Americans are not afraid to use it.

Just came from seeing it. Excellent movie. Thought Andy Garcia's acting to be a little lacking. I hope many see this film and talk about it. Barnhart is right The hhs mandate is out Cristeros War.

I just saw this film yesterday with my two youngest sons (18 and 13) for Father’s Day. It is an extraordinary film (though paced a bit slowly at times) but my 18 year old told me that the reviews were not very good. I told him I didn’t really care about the reviews. After the movie his response was, “I hate it when you are right.” (Kinda warms ol’ dad’s heart, that one.)

Barnhardt is right about the nature of the HHS conscience grab. As we walked out I told my sons that now they can understand why the Bishops answer to Obama’s mandates is not just “No.” but “Hell, no!.” They got it. And we are not even Catholic. Viva Cristo Rey!

There is a remnant in every Christian Church. They stand together against the evil.
