Does no one in a position of authority have the balls to put a stop to this? The denial of reality that is required to accept this is mind boggling. You have to purposely choose anti-reality to see nothing wrong with this.
I’m firmly on record as saying there is no such thing as MAGA; my position is that the republic is dead, past the point of no return, where the eventual outcome is now unavoidable collapse and hot war.
If there is one thing that could possibly trigger an outbreak of sanity, I think it’s this one. It’s certainly not homosexuality or any other grave condition related to sex. Maybe when the pedo normalization attempt comes, maybe. But the Trans Hoax does have the potential to mobilize whatever tiny amount of fortitude might be left in the tiny amount of non-neutered men, because the whole thing is so utterly, transparently, FALSE.
I was not aware of this Jazz person until a few days ago. Apparently he has been an internet star since coming out trans at age 11. He now has a cable show documenting his “journey” towards surgery, with the full support all along of his parents, who in a just society would be in prison. This poor creature has announced his intent to cut off his male parts and volunteer to go through the rest of his life with an open wound (anti-vagina) which needs constant care so that it doesn’t kill you. Think about the fact that this is now considered “medicine,” when the obvious remedy would be to leave the body alone and treat the diseased mind. Here is some excellent testimony from a sufferer of gender dysphoria who became grounded in actual reality HERE. If gender is fluid, isn’t the more rational approach to change the gender, rather than change the sex? Yeah, just try to have a “rational” discussion with anyone in this field. There’s no real money to be made in therapy. The real money is in the surgery.
Don’t you see how perfectly all this aligns with post-modernism’s core doctrine of the denial of reality? How the very nature of things must be transformed, and instead of conforming your mind to observable reality, we are forced to conform reality to the mind of the individual. Never forget this.
Where are the surgeons with morals? Where are the psychologists grounded in actual reality? STEP UP.
Oh, and in case you missed it…
I will leave you with a post I wrote back in May 2016, in the wake of the Obama Administration forcing the trans bathroom mandate. I knew immediately that this could serve as a turning point, both in the presidential race and America at large. To this day, I firmly believe that this overreach helped Trump, and may have been the initial spark that would turn into a raging dumpster fire in the ensuing months, as the heat of summer wore on and Sick Hillary wilted. I think the issue is still hot enough to serve as a rallying point.
And so it came to pass, 13 May 2016, the Obama administration announces it will cut federal funding to schools who do not allow transgender students to use the bath/locker room of whichever gender they identify with. We love the little children so much, it simply must be done. HERE
Today is the day we decide if we are going to take back our country.
That’s a pretty big deal, so we should probably examine some facts and try to determine exactly what’s at stake here. Without getting into some of the more bizarre claims of the Trans movement, where there may be oh a thousand genders, let’s just stick with the simple case of “the gender I identify with is the opposite of my biological sex.”
Indoctrination of children in “gender studies” and forcing them to “choose” genders is child abuse. Gender Dysphoria in children is not unusual, especially among girls. Ever hear of a “tomboy”? They’re not exactly rare. In the vast, vast majority of cases, everything works itself out during puberty, when the sex hormones do their thing. To force or encourage hormonal treatment of a pre-pubescent child should be a crime.
Gender Dysphoria in adults is a mental illness. It’s a disorder. As such, treatment is the rational course, even if the effectiveness of treatment varies. Celebration and encouragement lead to further misery. Ten minutes of research into life outcomes of this group will astound you. 41% attempt suicide. The movement will try to convince you that’s all about bullying and social stigma, but it’s not. Even those who have “fully transitioned” (in quotes because that’s not physically possible) are still overwhelmingly very sad, regretful, and yes, still very suicidal. Please, ten minutes, do the research. There are entire websites dedicated to this.
The irony of the bath/changing/locker room signage battle is inescapable. The Trans movement has spent years attempting to disconnect gender from biological sex. Yet the sign on the locker room isn’t referring to your feelings (even if those feelings are very real). The sign is referring to your biological sex, which is a metaphysical certitude. The X and Y don’t lie.
We’re going to hear a lot of talk about hatred and bigotry. I want to talk about love. Love and charity. When you profess to love someone, or to be charitable to your fellow man, you are professing that you care for them. These people are hurting; there is no doubt about that. They deserve to have their human dignity upheld and respected. Sometimes, caring means sharing hard truths for the well-being of another. If you really do care, then it’s your duty to call it out. Because the opposite of love isn’t hate, the opposite of love is indifference. Doing nothing, staying silent, is the opposite of love.
Let me assure you, what’s going on here with fedgov intervention has nothing to do with Trans rights. Do you really think the political ruling class gives a shit about 0.0016 of the voting population? No. This is about pushing the envelope to see where the breaking point lies. This is about testing the moral fabric of this country to see just how outrageously they can overreach until somebody decides to do something about it. This is a weighing of the sheeple.
I hope everyone understands this: If you support biological men in girls’ locker/bath/changing rooms, you are making a conscious choice to place the feelings of a tiny minority above the physical safety of all women and children. If that’s your opinion, just get comfortable with the fact that, in your mind, an increased level of violence against women and children in the form of rape, assault and murder by sexual predators abusing this new paradigm is simply the price of progress.
This is an appeal to every father, brother, husband. Do you willfully submit to putting your daughters, sisters and wives at grave risk for the sake of the “feelings” of 0.0016 of the population? Are you okay with giving the green light for every sexual predator to claim he “feels like a woman” and to freely enter, by federal law, any girls’ bathroom, changing room, or locker room he wants? If not, what are you going to do about it? Do you even have the balls to share this post?
Here’s an idea: Withdraw your kids from public school on Monday. Give the schools and the states the summer to stand up to the fedgov overreach. That action brings zero risk to you and your family, yet if done on a massive scale, could do some real good. HERE
This is a war on women and children. Period.
Gentlemen, into the breach…
Dr. Jordan Peterson consoles two professors who are waking up to the anti-reality dogma of the post-modernists. The redpilling is quite a sight. Video in a moment…
David Haskell: “I’m trying to get into the head space of some of my colleagues, so I got out a textbook called Race, Class, and Gender. It’s an anthology that’s used in Cultural Studies courses, Women’s Studies courses; it’s sort of the “go-to” text, so I’m told. I’m reading it, and I turn to page 14, and I can tell you it was page 14 because I was so astounded by what I found. It said: “Objectivity, as found through rational thought, is a Western and masculine concept that we will challenge throughout this text.””
Peterson: “Yeah. It’s too bad that you’re shocked by that.”
“I couldn’t believe it! So you want to go for irrational?!”
“The PC-types have been saying exactly that since the 1970s. Make no mistake about this…this isn’t something they are “secreting” in. This is the dead statement. The whole notion of logic and coherence, and empirical data for that matter…”
“Let’s question the definition of evidence…”
As noted in the video comments, the very fact that these professors are just waking up to the extent of the problem really demonstrates the isolation of academia from the real world, and this is as scary as the subject matter itself.
This is a six minute clip (containing the quoted exchange) of a two hour discussion. You can find a link to the whole thing in the video description.
Compare and contrast with St. Thomas Aquinas via +Garrigou-Lagrange:
This introduction (to Aristotle’s Metaphysica) concludes with a defense, against the Sophists, of the objective validity of reason itself, and of reason’s first principle, the principle of contradiction. He who denies this principle affirms a self-destructive sentence. To deny this principle is to annihilate language, is to destroy all substance, all distinction between things, all truths, thoughts, and even opinions, all desires and acts. We could no longer distinguish even the degrees of error… A more profound defense of the objective validity of reason and reason’s first law has never been written…
In the intelligible reality thus known, our intellect seizes at once its opposition to non-being, an opposition expressed by the principle of contradiction: Being is not non-being. “By nature our intellect knows being and the immediate characteristics of being as being, out of which knowledge arises the understanding of first principles, of the principle, say, that affirmation and denial cannot coexist (opposition between being and non-being): and other similar principles.”
+Garrigou-Lagrange, Reality, 1.7, 4
Keep in mind, the anti-realists would say, “You just proved our point. You think arguing from Aquinas’ so-called objective reality means anything to us? Um, Western and Masculine much?”
By the very nature of their position, these people can’t be reasoned with.
We certainly could go a lot of places with that headline, am I right?
The story at LifesiteNews is titled: “Chaste same-sex attracted Christians counter Pope Francis: ‘God did NOT make us gay’.” HERE
Indeed, the responses are harsh, and the universal theme is: Shut up, fake news, fake pope, fake religion. Either we believe what we believe or we don’t, and lying to people in order to make yourself popular, on a matter that concerns the salvation of souls, is a most detestable act.
No commentary is necessary: (my emphasis)
There is one thing…that every single one of these chaste same-sex attracted men and women made clear in their statements to LifeSiteNews: God most certainly did not make them gay.
Thomas Berryman wonders “just how seriously the Holy Father takes the Church’s teachings on this and other issues of sexual morality … It is deeply disturbing to believe that leaders of the Roman Catholic Church are more concerned about winning people’s affection and approval than the fate of their eternal souls.”
“This certainly makes it a lot harder for those of us who are same-sex attracted and trying to obey the Church’s timeless teachings to do so–or even feel like we are truly welcome in the new, paradigm-shifting Church,” said Berryman. “Belonging to a Church whose leaders don’t even believe in its teachings does seem kind of dumb.”
The Pope’s “remark disturbed me greatly because first of all, it’s a lie, and second of all, he is deceiving millions of people into hell,” said Anita Angelo, who did not mince words when speaking to LifeSiteNews. “He just told millions of homosexuals that it’s ok to stay gay and sold them on the devil’s lie. It’s not. Sure Jesus said to ‘come as you are’ but He will turn your life around if you let Him. God can and will deliver us from every yoke of bondage if we let Him.”
Angelo said that those who have “itching ears … longing for affirmation” need to know that the Pope’s alleged but uncorrected statement “logically speaking doesn’t even make sense.” She asked, “Why would a loving God create someone to be same-sex attracted and then at the same time condemn them to hell? He just wouldn’t.”
“I am very grieved over his remark,” said Angelo. “It actually makes me sick to my stomach because people will stay trapped and not even know it.”
Before he started his outreach in San Francisco to the LGBT community, Catholic Joseph Sciambra assumed his struggle would be with the secular gay community. Yet he found, “Those who stand up for truth … have almost no support from the hierarchy.”
“Over the past ten years, because of this issue, I have teetered every day on the edge of leaving the Catholic Church. Beyond the physical and mental torments I have suffered due to a decade I spent as a gay man, the Church has been my greatest source of suffering,” said Sciambra in a published opinion.
“When I hear those in the Catholic Church say ‘you were born gay,’ I think: My God, they are killing us,” he concluded.
You can read the rest over there.
St. Joan of Arc, convicted of heresy by Bishop Pierre Cauchon, a legitimate prelate of the Roman Catholic Church, along with a corrupt bench of judges. Burned at the stake at Rouen, 30 May, 1431.
“About Jesus Christ and the Church, I just know they are one in the same thing.”
“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe. But to surrender who you are and to live without belief is more terrible than dying – even more terrible than dying young.”
In response to the trick question as to whether she was in the state of grace: “If I am not, may God put me there; and if I am, may God so keep me.”
“It is better to be alone with God. His friendship will not fail me, nor His counsel, nor His love. In His strength, I will dare and dare and dare until I die.”
“You say that you are my judge; I do not know if you are; but take good heed not to judge me ill, because you would put yourself in great peril.”
“Children say that people are hung sometimes for speaking the truth.”
“Go forward bravely. Fear nothing. Trust in God; all will be well.”
“All battles are first won or lost in the mind.”
“ACT, AND GOD WILL ACT.”
“I am not afraid, I was born to do this.”
Upon being chained to the stake: “Hold the Cross high, that I may see it through the flames.”
Her sentence was reversed and annulled by the Church in 1455. Beatified 11 April 1909. Canonized 16 May 1920.
St. Joan of Arc, ora pro nobis
The greatest temporal threat to Satan are the Contemplative Orders. Period, Full Stop.
I say “temporal”, because these warriors exist and operate temporally, in the world, but hidden from it. However, the work they do is not temporal, but spiritual. The supernatural warfare waged by these orders is the driving force that keeps legions of demons in check, and their strategic position in the battlespace cannot be overstated. You may have noticed a shift in this war over the past fifty years or so, in favor of the enemy. Well, Satan still isn’t satisfied, and no quarter will be given. The enemies of God, the enemies of the Church, who are now “running” the Church, will not stop until this elite class of special operators is wiped out.
We could see this coming a couple years ago, when the Apostolic Constitution, “Vultum Dei quaerere” was published. Now we have the juridical mandate “Cor orans” just released, thoroughly explained over at The Remnant HERE and HERE, with direct testimony from a group of cloistered Carmelites. Here is a quick taste:
“The Cor Orans document is the death-knell of Carmel. It signals the end of the contemplative monastic life. Not only does it destroy the autonomy of the Monasteries, something Our Holy Mother St. Teresa was extremely insistent about, but it also removes the Superior, dissolves her authority and power, removes the financial independence of each Monastery, and destroys the specificity of each charism… This is a disaster. Especially for Carmel.”
Click on the links to read about how the dismantling will take place. And remember, this directly affects every person on the planet. All of those prayers, especially the prayers from the orders who pray the old breviary, are extremely powerful and beneficial for all souls in the world. Their suppression means more attacks on YOU.
I wrote a bunch of words about it back when Vultum was released. Not much to add now, and out of time yet again, so I’ll just repost the entire thing. Keep in mind at the time of this post, I had yet to renounce “Francis” as an antipope.
If you don’t understand the reality and importance of spiritual warfare, you have absolutely zero chance of getting to heaven. Listen up.
I wrote a post about the Church Militant that I will excerpt here, because it already explains the seriousness of the situation and (partly) what got us here. You can read that whole post HERE, but the core is as follows:
The duties of the Church Militant can be broken down into a threefold engagement in spiritual and temporal warfare, to which we are all called:
- The internal spiritual battle against personal sin, which subsists in all the faithful as the result of Original Sin and its ensuing Concupiscence, which is closely related to #2,
- The external spiritual battle against demons, Powers and Principalities; those evil spirits prowling about the world seeking the ruin of souls
- The external temporal battle against human institutions, laws, inequities and iniquities, imposed by men, which are contrary to Divine Law
The Catechism of Trent, Article IX, puts it very succinctly:
“It is called militant, because it wages eternal war with those implacable enemies, the world, the flesh and the devil.”
Does any of this language sound familiar? Have you ever heard a sermon preached on spiritual warfare? Have you ever heard a sermon on rooting out personal sin? Have you ever heard a sermon on your duty to fight unjust laws and unjust men? You haven’t? Welcome to the post-conciliar Church.
Just as the wrecking ball takes multiple swings to bring down an edifice, omission of this precise formula was but one blow in the brick by brick demolition of the faith orchestrated by the modernist marxist infiltrators who hijacked the council and the faith.
So this is the reality of what is going on around us 24/7/365. It’s warfare for sure, but the stakes are way higher than any earthly battle, because the outcomes affect the eternal destiny of souls. Did you notice that the first two duties are purely supernatural, and only the third is natural? That’s because our physical actions (i.e. ‘Just War’, proselytising, protests, petitions, voting, BLOGS) are merely small arms fire, or at most, artillery. But the WMDs of this war are prayers. It’s easy to forget, or even to doubt whether that’s true, because you’ve been conditioned for 50 years to kneel at the altar of Active Participation. Let’s face it; we suck at this. We have the awesome power to participate in battle at the supernatural level, and we choose to spend our time focused more on the natural.
We must speak forcefully about the reality of the supernatural. Those demons are real, and their first tactic is always to hide from the light. We must proclaim this reality and call out the grim destiny of those who refuse to believe it. Recall again we are speaking here of a moral duty, and the task is not for the faint-hearted. This is about doing battle with fallen angels, created beings possessing intellects orders of magnitude greater than our own. They have been thrown out of heaven for their refusal to serve, and their only goal is to drag more souls to Hell by convincing said souls to refuse to serve. Our hope rests only in God, who does not send his servants into battle unarmed. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty to God, unto the pulling down of fortifications, destroying counsels.
Thankfully, we have the contemplatives, or at least what is left of them.
Contemplative orders were all but wiped out after Vatican II. Of the few that remain, most have been infiltrated with nuChurch to a greater or lesser extent. Even the “conservative” houses are severely handicapped, because their primary weapon – the Liturgy – is suboptimal. This includes not only the new Mass with all its defects, but also and importantly the new breviary, with its intentional suppression of the “offensive” psalms. Those suppressed verses were some of the most powerful spiritual weapons available, and they are no longer being prayed (literally hundreds of verses are omitted in the new office, but you can start with Psalms 57/58, 82/83, and especially 108/109 HERE.
Regardless of their level of orthodoxy, it’s the contemplative orders that wage constant spiritual battle on your behalf. That is why all of this most certainly affects YOU. We laymen absolutely have the duty to wage war as part of the Church Militant. But we are the regular military.
The contemplatives are SOCOM. They are DEVGRU. They are MARSOC. The wars are unwinnable without them, and the enemy knows it. So now a new assault is being launched, from within the walls and from the top. Isn’t it interesting that even though these orders have nearly gone totally extinct since the council, and most that survive are severely wounded, that’s still not good enough. No, because even though they are few, and wounded, they are still the most badass warfighters. They must be completely exterminated.
In the Apostolic Constitution VULTUM DEI QUAERERE, Francis lays out exactly how it will go down.
First up, this crushing mandate:
15. In today’s social, cultural and religious context, monasteries need to pay great attention to vocational and spiritual discernment…they should ensure that candidates receive personalized guidance and adequate programmes of formation, always keeping in mind that for initial formation and that following temporary profession, to the extent possible, “ample time must be reserved”, no less than nine years and not more than twelve.38
No less than nine years following temporary profession? And maybe as long as twelve? Well that sounds inviting, doesn’t it? It should really help boost numbers by telling 20 year olds “just 15 years, missy, and we’ll have you ready.” Oh and the footnote 38 refers to Canon 648, which only addresses the novitiate (not less than 12 months, not more than two years). It is actually Canon 655 that refers to temporary profession (not less than three years and not more than six). But don’t worry, Francis had the foresight to proclaim his document is above canon law. I’ll get to that at the end.
So now that we’ve ensured there won’t be any incoming threat, let’s just go ahead and make sure we nuke the entire site from orbit.
28. Autonomy favours the stability of life and internal unity of each community, ensuring the best conditions for contemplation. But autonomy ought not to mean independence or isolation, especially from the other monasteries of the same Order or the same charismatic family.
29. “No one contributes to the future in isolation, by his or her efforts alone, but by seeing himself or herself as part of a true communion which is constantly open to encounter, dialogue, attentive listening and mutual assistance”. For this reason, take care to avoid “the disease of self-absorption” and to preserve the value of communion between different monasteries as a path of openness towards the future…
Because it goes without saying that the aforementioned Benedictines of Mary in Missouri could CERTAINLY benefit from communion with the Benedictines of ERIE am I right? I bet Sister Joan can’t wait to alleviate their isolation.
30. Federation is an important structure of communion between monasteries sharing the same charism, lest they remain isolated. The principal aim of a Federation is to promote the contemplative life in the member monasteries, in accordance with the demands of their proper charism, and to ensure assistance in initial and continuous formation as well as in practical needs, through the exchange of nuns…
No, the principle aim of a federation is NOT to promote the exchange of nuns, and Canon 684 (referred to in the footnote for this paragraph) explicitly lays out the rules by which a transfer can take place. But again, this document overrules canon law.
31. …The variety of ways in which the cloister is observed within the same Order should be seen as an enrichment and not an obstacle to communion; it is a matter of reconciling different approaches in a higher unity. This communion can take concrete shape in various forms of encounter…
Pure Francis right there. Achieving higher unity through encounter. Will there be hand holding and bongos? Speaking of which, have I mentioned how all this comes in the wake of Francis terminating the intervention into the arch heretical, new-age worshipping LCWR? You go, girlz. Carry on.
And now, in case you were holding out hope that there really is nothing sinister here, that I shouldn’t be reading Francis through Satan, think again. The moment you’ve all been waiting for….CONCLUSION AND REGULATIONS:
Art. 1. With reference to canon 20 of the Code of Canon Law…the following are derogated: 1. Those canons of the Code of Canon Law that, in part, directly contradict any article of the present Constitution; 2. and, more specifically, the articles containing norms and dispositions found in: – the Apostolic Constitution Sponsa Christi of Pius XII (21 November 1950): Statuta Generalia Monialium; – the Instruction Inter Praeclara of the Sacred Congregation for Religious (23 November 1950); – the Instruction Verbi Sponsa of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life (13 May 1999) on the contemplative life and enclosure of nuns.
Art. 5 § 2. Since sharing the transforming experience of God’s word with priests, deacons, other consecrated persons and the laity is an expression of genuine ecclesial communion, each monastery is to determine how this spiritual outreach can be accomplished.
Does this mean Canon 674 is derogated?
Can. 674 Institutes which are entirely ordered to contemplation always hold a distinguished place in the mystical Body of Christ: for they offer an extraordinary sacrifice of praise to God, illumine the people of God with the richest fruits of holiness, move it by their example, and extend it with hidden apostolic fruitfulness. For this reason, members of these institutes cannot be summoned to furnish assistance in the various pastoral ministries however much the need of the active apostolate urges it.
Art. 8 § 2. Whenever the requirements for a monastery’s genuine autonomy are lacking, the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life will study the possibility of establishing an ad hoc commission made up of the ordinary, the president of the federation, a representative of the federation and the abbess or prioress of the monastery. In every case, the purpose of this intervention is to initiate a process of guidance for the revitalization of the monastery, or to effect its closure.
Let me translate: “If you intend to hold fast to the True Faith, we will shut you bitches down.”
Art. 9 § 1. Initially, all monasteries are to be part of a federation. If, for some special reason, a monastery cannot join a federation, after the vote of the chapter, permission to allow the monastery to remain outside a federation is to be sought from the Holy See, which is competent to study and decide the question.
Art. 10 § 1. Each monastery…is to ask the Holy See what form of cloister it wishes to embrace, whenever a different form of cloister from the present one is called for.
Art. 11 § 2. In communities devoted to contemplation, the income received from labour should not be used exclusively to ensure a decent sustenance, but also, if possible, to assist the poor and monasteries in need.
Art. 14 § 2. Once they have been adapted to the new regulations, the articles of the constitutions or rules of individual institutes are to be submitted for approval by the Holy See.
I just don’t see how any of this could go wrong, do you?
He starts with a brief synopsis of the three necessary moral conditions of conjugal union: Complementarity, fidelity and permanence, and openness to the transmission of life.
(pssst… that means sodomy between men is mortal sin, but so is sodomy between a husband and wife and so is contraception between husband and wife… note well)
He goes on to explain the only two rational ends of claiming God makes someone “gay”:
- If God makes people gay, then He has started making human beings who possess a different nature than what was revealed to us throughout creation history. God changed the rules and didn’t tell us.
- The natural laws of conjugal union are still in place, but God purposely creates people with a nature that is incompatible with the plan he has revealed.
Obviously, both of these are big fat NOPES. I could write 3000 words on this, but I’m out of time today.
The video really is only five minutes. Give it a listen.
