  • France Quietly Reintroducing the Crime of Blasphemy (Islamization)

    Today, in France, using freedom of expression to criticize Islam is clearly an extremely dangerous act, even if you, like Mila, are a child. France is rapidly going from laïcité (secularism) to lâcheté (cowardice); from freedom of expression to unconditional surrender. France keeps trying to procrastinate while Islamism thrives on the elites' rapidly abandoning their Judeo-Christian values. Feminist organizations, so quick to denounce "toxic masculinity" and "patriarchal structures of domination", were also silent. Today, in France, the country of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, which always sanctified freedom of expression and the right to...

    A Christmas Marked by Desecration, with Bergoglio as Chief Desecrator I had not yet seen HERE the celebration of the Pachamama with Bergoglio in front of the altar at Saint Peter’s Basilica last October 4 at the opening of the Amazon Synod. It is stunning. Now I understand why people are talking about idolatrous profanation and of the need to reconsecrate Saint Peter’s Basilica. Perhaps it is not “the abomination of desolation in the holy place” (Mt 24:15) prophesied by Jesus, but it certainly raises many concerns. It is a sad Christmas for Christians if we think about the many...

    South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg faced a flurry of criticism on Christmas day after he suggested that Jesus Christ entered into the world as a refugee. “Today I join millions around the world in celebrating the arrival of divinity on earth, who came into this world not in riches but in poverty, not as a citizen but as a refugee,” he tweeted. His tweet came just days after the 2020 presidential candidate released his plan calling for a significant increase in refugee admissions and setting an admissions minimum of 95,000. Buttigieg’s policy paper specifically recalls Biblical language to support...
  • Pope Francis Tells His Followers that 'True Disciples of Jesus' Do Not Share Their Faith, Says Christ Rejecting People Are All 'Children of God'

    Asked by one of the students Friday how a Christian should treat people of other faiths or no faith, the pope said that “we are all the same, all children of God” and that true disciples of Jesus do not proselytize. Pope Francis said that his experience growing up in Argentina with its waves of immigration was a great help in learning to respect other people. “There is a mixture of blood, a strong miscegenation in Argentina — I am the son of a migrant — and this made for a culture of coexistence,” he said. “I went to public...

    Charleston, S.C., Dec 2, 2019 / 03:30 pm (CNA).- Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg quoted the Gospel of Matthew in his first statewide ad in South Carolina, the latest in the candidate’s references to Christianity in his campaign messages. The ad opens with a clip from an Iowa speech Buttigieg gave Nov. 1: “In our White House, you won’t have to shake your head and ask yourself: What ever happened to ‘I was hungry and you fed me; I was a stranger and you welcomed me’,” a reference to Matthew 25:35. The ad will be released on Tuesday in South...

    Archbishop Vigano Condemns Vienna Cathedral Pro-LGBT Concert as ‘Blasphemous’ In response to a pro-LGBT concert last night in St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna, Archbishop Carlo Vigano has said the event was a sacrilege and a consequence of idolatry that “darkens the mind and perverts judgement.”In a message to Alexander Tschugguel, one of the founders of the St. Boniface Institute who led a rosary outside the cathedral while the event was taking place, Archbishop Vigano noted that “once again” Vienna suffers from “yet another homoerotic and blasphemous provocation.”The cathedral was used Nov. 30 to stage a ‘Believe Together’ concert, hosted by an...

    Richard Nixon was elected to his second term as President in November 1972 with 60.1% of the popular vote and 520 electoral votes. Less than two years later, he was removed from office (forced to resign) by a conspiracy orchestrated by the CIA (Woodward), the FBI (Felt), the media (Bradlee, Bernstein) and Democrats in Congress. At the time, no American was more enthusiastic for his removal than me. I was a true Watergate fanatic. I ate, slept, and talked Watergate. The day he resigned, I was overjoyed. I was fooled, and many are being fooled right now, in the same...

    Communiqué of the Superior general of the Society about the Synod on the Amazon Menzingen, October 28, 2019 On the feast of Saints Simon and Jude, ApostlesDear Members of the Society,The recent Synod on the Amazon was witness to terrible scenes where the abomination of idolatrous rites was played out within the sanctuary of God in new and unthinkable ways. And then, the final document of this tumultuous assembly attacked the holiness of the Catholic priesthood, pushing for both the abolition of ecclesiastical celibacy and the establishment of a female deaconate. Truly, the seeds of apostasy which our venerable...

    In the Light of the Law ^ | Oct 22, 2019 | Edward Peters
    A few days ago men removed some female figurines (centerpieces for several weird ceremonies in Rome the last few weeks) from a church and tossed them into the Tiber River. Vatican spokesman Paolo Ruffini dismissed the act as a “stunt”. Regardless of how one assess this act, however, I think it not accurate to describe it as a mere “stunt”. A “stunt” is a gesture that calls attention to a problem but does not itself solve the problem. For example, chaining oneself to a lamppost could call attention to the plight of the unjustly imprisoned but does not itself free...

    Bishop Dons Hindu Robes for Mass Before Ritual Genitalia of Pagan Gods Catholic church has tabernacle in the form of the phallus of a Hindu deity DESHNUR, India (ChurchMilitant.com) - An Indian bishop has provoked a backlash from Catholic and Hindus after he celebrated the Holy Eucharist using saffron robes worn by Hindu priests before a tabernacle in the form of a Shivalinga — the phallus of the Hindu god Shiva.

    The question was about climate change. The answer soon turned to the Bible. And Pete Buttigieg knew the verses. “There’s a lot about the stewardship of creation that is in Scripture that I don’t see being honored by the administration right now, not to mention the stuff about loving your neighbor and taking care of the least among us and feeding the poor,” the South Bend, Indiana, mayor said. The crowd of about 250 at a Mississippi River park in southeastern Iowa this month erupted with cheers. Republicans for a half century have built a loyal following among white evangelical...

Over 30 town councils in Poland declared themselves "free from LGBT ideology" after anti-Catholic LGBT parades blasphemed the Blessed Sacrament and the icon of the Black Madonna and Warsaw's mayor signed a pro-LGBT declaration in February calling for...

She has spoken through the prophets," the just-ordained Bishop Brown said, referring to the Holy Spirit. ...

    [Catholic Caucus] Francis "Lost Memory", Blasphemes God Who "Wants Transsexuals That Way" "About McCarrick I knew nothing, of course, nothing, nothing," Pope Francis lied into the cameras of Mexican Televisa (May 28). Earlier this year, modernist Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, 88, was condemned without a trial of unspecified "abuses." 270 days ago, whistle-blower Archbishop Viganò stated that he had informed Francis on June 23, 2013 about McCarrick. Now, Francis protests that "I don't remember" this meeting and its explosive content, calling Viganò at this point only "the one who said." Francis has a long history of lying in public. He says...

    The Church that Jesus Christ shed His blood to create is not inclusive, it is exclusive. Jesus says you can 'come as you are' but you can't stay as you are. I came to God 28 years ago as a hopeless drunk, and guess what? The bible is against drunkenness, so I had to quit it. Are you LGBTQP? Great, come to Jesus and get saved, the bible says God is happy to have you. But proof that you are really saved is that the Holy Spirit that started living inside when you got saved now tells you that homosexuality...

    Pete Buttigieg said in an interview broadcast Tuesday that he and his husband Chasten want to be fathers one day – but 'maybe' he'll have to finish his historic run for president first. And he told a 'Today' show audience that he plans to keep emphasizing his religious faith in the face of hecklers who berate him for being a gay Christian. The 37-year-old Democrat takes the almighty seriously, and claimed that while God isn't likely a partisan, he would never be a Republican in the mold of Donald Trump. He said it's 'important that we stop seeing religion used...
