  • Is there really a creature named Satan?

    In The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis suggested that we make two mistakes regarding the devil. One is to give him more authority than he deserves—then he can do what he wants. The other is to deny that he exists—then he can do what he wants. People today typically think of Satan as a symbol of evil, wearing red tights and a tail, the stuff of Saturday cartoons. He’s just as happy to be ignored as to be feared. But it’s impossible to ignore his work: broken hearts and homes, abuse, disease, and immorality. Even those who do not admit...

    [Catholic Caucus] Don Bosco’s most ferocious enemy From the writings of Don Giuseppe Tomaselli H/T Cordialiter Blog The Devil gets furious with those striving for their own spiritual perfection and so everyday he engages in a fight with them, tempting them towards evil; if he doesn’t manage today, he hopes to do so tomorrow; he knows the weaknesses of everyone and also how to exploit them, by driving people to impurity, hate or the abuse of God’s mercy.    But if he behaves like this with devout people, imagine how his furor is roused against those who bring souls...
  • Pope Francis decries critics of church as 'friends of the devil'

    Pope Francis has said that those who constantly criticise the Catholic church are “friends of the devil”. Speaking to pilgrims from southern Italy, the pontiff said that defects of the church needed to be denounced so they could be corrected, but that those who condemned “without love” were linked to the devil. “One cannot live a whole life accusing, accusing, accusing, the church,” he said. People who did, he said, were “the friends, cousins and relatives of the devil”. His remarks come as dozens of victims of clerical sexual abuse gathered in Rome ahead of an unprecedented Vatican summit on...

    Lucien Greaves, co-founder and chief spokesperson for The Satanic Temple, expressed fear that Republican Vice-President Mike Pence’s religious views unfairly favor good over evil. “Under our Constitution all religious views are protected from discriminatory laws and policies,” Greaves asserted. “Yet, we see the Vice-President of the United States repeatedly speaking out against evil, which is the core tenet of our faith.” “Worse, antipathy to our faith receives routine support from the brainwashed majority of Americans,” Greaves complained. “We are a minority in need of the protections from the hostility of the majority. We are pleased that the New York State...

    The shade Cuomo chose was a putrid pink that could be called Luciferian pink, a color that comes with an acrid odor of sulphur. The devil wears pink and it is more than certain that political pinkos are among his most favored people. The devil—who crawls into the woodwork by pretending that he doesn’t exist—dons pink pussy caps as he does dust-ups behind the scenes, stuffs his cloven feet into pink stilettos, plants pink petunias where only roses should grow, and on Monday night was singularly honored when New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo had the One World Trade Center lit...

    A sculpture celebrating Saudi Arabia’s place in the G20 Summit was erected on the World Trade Center grounds last week, a stone’s throw away from the 9/11 memorial. Shaped to resemble a piece of candy, the nine-foot-tall statue bears the Kingdom’s emerald flag emblazoned with the Arabic inscription, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet.” It was created by French sculptor Laurence Jenkell in 2011 as part of the larger installation “Candy Nation” which depicts G20 countries as sugary delights, and has since been featured in over 25 countries. All 20 sculptures are currently on display...

    Actor Christian Bale, in his Golden Globe award acceptance speech, decided to thank "Satan" in his acknowledgments, apparently for inspiring his portrayal of former vice president Dick Cheney in the movie Vice, as the Hollywood chi-chi crowd cheered.According to a report in Variety: Christian Bale had one unconventional figure to thank in his acceptance speech after winning best actor in a comedy or musical for "Vice" at Sunday night's Golden Globes. "Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration for playing this role," he said about his character of Dick Cheney in the political satire. Given that Satan amounts to absolute evil, it's evidence he re-created a cartoon character, not a living,...

    Ok, Mr. Bale is now a publicly acknowledged Satan worshiper. No reason he shouldn't meet his maker in 2019. So sad. When all of this catches up to him, his excuses will ring hollow in his own ears. So long C.Bale

    Biodynamic Agriculture. The Strange Magisterium of “L’Osservatore Romano” The United Nations conference on climate is coming up, to be held in early December in Poland, and the Holy See - or rather the pontifical academy of sciences headed by Bishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo - has already said its piece, hosting an international conference at the Vatican in mid-November on “Climate change, the health of the planet, and the future of humanity,” and entrusting to the Malthusian economist Jeffrey Sachs the task of dictating the new “decalogue” of salvation: enough with the coal, enough with the oil, enough with the gas,...

    How to Recognize Demonic Activity in the Church Scandals, According to an Exorcist “By sexually abusing children, Satan desires to destroy the icon of the kingdom of God.” Patti Armstrong “Who is going to believe you?” It is the devil’s taunt, according to exorcist, Father Gary Thomas. It is a message to silence sexual abuse victims. And we have learned that same message silenced or impeded the truth of the sexual scandal in the Church from getting out for so long. Fr. Gary Thomas is the exorcist for the Diocese of San Jose, California. His training in Rome was the...

    The National Catholic Register says singer Celine Dion has gone to the “dark side” with a newly announced line of clothing for children that is “gender-neutral” black and white and features images of skulls. A news service described a new ad in which “Dion pulls out a handful of black sparkles and blows them into the air causing all the pink and blue outfits to become black and white gender-neutral pieces.” Ezra Levant of Rebel Media posted a video commentary in which he said the clothes “are as ugly as you’d think.” “For one thing, they have lots of skulls....

    WASHINGTON -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who said she has no doubts she'll be elected speaker of the House by her colleagues, said in her first interview since Election Day that she's proud to be branded "a San Francisco liberal... as that, the San Francisco values of St. Francis of Assisi, which I'm proud to be an instrument of God's deed." Pelosi told CNN that she intends to bring for a vote initiatives that have enjoyed bipartisan support in Congress but haven't been brought to the floor by GOP leadership, including protection for DREAMers, comprehensive immigration reform, gun...

    Short devotional...yet so full of Truth. Stopping the Devil at Your Heart’s Door David Wilkerson (1931-2011) October 24, 2018 One of the great tragedies of the Church in this generation, and one of God’s greatest griefs, is that so many Christians are not truly happy. They put on a good front — singing, clapping, smiling and praising. But lurking just beneath the surface is loneliness and deep misery. These Christians are hot, then suddenly cold. They cannot cope with fear, and depression runs over them like a steamroller. One week they are high, the next week low. Many times their...

    Just another devolved heathen tribe. Their highest leaders are low-level thugs who commit heinous murder, dismember the body then tell insulting, childish lies to our faces. These devolved humans are the same heathen Wahhabis responsible for 911 - either DIRECTLY or by giving aid, cover and safety to the evil doers. Why are we friends with them again? I'll give you ONE guess. A nation like the USA absolutely cannot have cozy relationships (any relationships really) with blatant, cold blooded, liar-murderers. We should not be arming *any* Mideast tribes - those arms will eventually/inevitably be used for evil, possibly against...

    If the title looks plain idiotic, it's not. On October 31, many who identify as being believers in Christ Jesus will actually do just that. Their church may have a spooky "trunk or treat" or festival, or a costume contest and they'll take their kids to it. This year the costumes will be even more horrific than the last, but it's all in fun. No. If you or your church participate in the celebration of Satan's day, you are in league with the Evil One and are not truly a Child of the Living God--Jesus. Get yourself and your family...

    Pope Francis returned to one of his favorite topics this week, preaching against Christians who are “rigid” and resistant to change. In his homily at morning Mass at his Santa Marta residence in the Vatican on Tuesday, the pope compared modern Christians hung up on doctrine, morals, or the liturgy with the “hypocritical” Pharisees and doctors of the law of Jesus’ time People followed Jesus because he was “attractive, touched hearts, made himself loved,” Francis said, unlike the Pharisees who scrutinized everything “under a magnifying glass.” *snip* The pope, in fact, gave a series of homilies sharply criticizing those who...

    Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.(Matthew 18:10) The world of pagan sexual anarchy that out blind leaders are intent on plunging us into, is a very harsh world for children, because the evil spirits that animate the movement, utterly hate the innocence of little ones. The left has made war in the West on the very idea of being fruitful and multiplying as the Creator originally commanded the human race( and never revoked...

    So, connedservatives, stop being conned If you’re a conned-servative who gets sand thrown in his eyes, his kneecaps kicked off and slashed with a broken bottle and then still fights the next time by Queensberry rules, this article isn’t for you. But if you’re disturbed by the Left’s behavior these last years and want to know how to handle these people whose “mask has been dropping,” understand this: Behind that mask is the Devil. If you’re not a person of faith, view this as a thought exercise. But it’s one connedservatives—those nice guys who always finish last—had better embrace fast....
  • The Left; Cruelty Towards Women

    “… The Tender mercies of the wicked are cruel…” Proverbs 12:10 “… And He said to the Serpent, I will put enmity between thee and the woman…” Genesis 3Those who are proponents of the left in this nation, pretend to be so compassionate and concerned , for minorities, women, children, “working families” etc. . Supposedly Leftists are the caring ones, for they defend the interests of the weak, disenfranchised and powerless. I am not qualified to judge anyone’s intentions, but the truth is illustrated in the above mentioned proverb,that such “compassion” as the left practices, is actually quite cruel, particularly...

Of course we know that the Christian life consists of manifold trials, for as the book of Acts tells us, “through many tribulations shall we enter into the Kingdom of heaven” . But recently it seems to me that...
