Sapientia et Veritas -Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d,
As home his footsteps he hath turn’d
From wandering on a foreign strand! – Sir Walter Scott, My Native Land
THE MIKE CHURCH SHOW IS NOW AVAILABLE TO LISTEN TO LIVE! ON APPLE’S ITUNES!
Evidence, The History of Christianity &The Existence of The Spirit World DO Offer A Vegas Explanation – The NY Times calls the mass murder carried out by Stephen Paddock “meticulously planned“. This plays right into my explanation for the event: it was a pre-meditated act to bring about a moment of preternatural joy i.e. the Devil DID make him do it or more precisely, demons.
Is The War, War, War!, Military Entertainment Complex To Blame For Mass Shootings? – It is a fair question and one I believe is a “yes” answer but that doesn’t spare the political, ruling-elite’s culpability in counseling war and destruction as the American response to every crisis on earth where a gun or bomb can be used. Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge opines:
“When you talk about the Las Vegas mass shooting, you’re not dealing with a single shooter scenario. Rather, you’re dealing with a sophisticated, far-reaching war machine that has woven itself into the very fabric of this nation. You want to stop the gun violence? Stop the worship of violence that permeates our culture. Stop glorifying the military industrial complex with flyovers and salutes during sports spectacles. Stop acting as if there is anything patriotic about military exercises and occupations that bomb hospitals and schools.”
Let’s add this: stop turning for news and opinion on news to the Sean Hannitys and “ambassador” John Bolton’s of the world, checkenhawks who’ve never met a foreign affair they didn’t suggest Raytheon bomb might take care of. Maybe try the CRUSADE Channel?
The Only Thing That Will Be Unified After Las Vegas Massacre Will Be Disunity – The powder keg that is ‘Murican culture remains on a war-like footing today and the attempts to fabricate a “unity” on the graves of the massacred will ultimately fail. Pat Buchanan doesn’t hold out much hope for unity: “A massacre of Americans like that in Las Vegas may bring us together briefly. But what holds us together when issues of race, religion, ethnicity, culture, history and politics—our cherished diversity itself—appear to be pulling us ever further apart?”
Sorry Netflix, “Big Mouth” Is An Act of Teen Porn Too Far – A retired Bishop has cancelled his Netflix account after learning of the pedophilia the media outlet is promoting with its new series Big Mouth. Please note the graphic image Bishop René Henry Gracida used for his post, look familiar?
O’Reilley, All In On Suicide By Constitution – “This is the price of freedom” opines the no-spin zone’s conductor. If that really is a sincere statement then the future headlines will be peppered with more killings and O’Reilley wants us to believe that is inevitable. Really!? I am thinking that if some of us wish for this to NOT be our future and don’t want to pay “the price” then what of us? “Too bad, take your dose of ‘Murican exceptionalism and like it”.
Las Vegas Shooter Was The Archetype Materialist Modernity Creates, Are There More? You Betcha… – Read my response to my old radio pal John Zeigler who I briefly worked at in Raleigh, NC in 1996-1997. Zeigler’s take is that Paddock didn’t believe in an afterlife:
“It is then fairly safe to conclude that Paddock did not believe in an afterlife and that this freed him up, so to speak, to end his life in whatever way he desired, knowing that he would never suffer any real consequences.”
This is entirely consistent with the reigning “opinion” of a majority of ‘Muricans, right down to Zeigler’s heartfelt admission that he is an “agnostic” with “grave concerns” over the existence of an afterlife. This is the exact point my guests and I have been making the last 4 years: existence for the purpose of consuming material goods is what animals do, Man was made with an intellect and a soul that endures after material consumption, thus the Paddochian way of life is anathema to God’s plan and the natural, Created order.
Stephen Haddock Attempted To Live Like A Hugh Hefneresque Playboy, Still Think Porn Doesn’t “Hurt Anyone”? – Read the WaPo’s lengthy bio of Stephen Paddock and you’ll discover a portrait of a jet-setting playboy with a lust for high stakes gambling, world travel and seclusion inside his version of the “Playboy Mansion”, demonstrating the rejection of community the Marxist lives his life by.
Diane McKay lived next door to Paddock and Danley at their Reno home until July, when McKay moved away. Danley wasn’t forthcoming about her life, and Paddock was unfriendly, McKay recalled. She only saw him in the mornings, when he went to the clubhouse to work out. “He was weird. Kept to himself,” said McKay, 79. “It was like living next to nothing. . . . You can at least be grumpy, something. He was just nothing, quiet.” The couple kept their blinds closed, but sometimes Paddock would open the garage door, revealing an enormous safe the size of a refrigerator.
So the practitioner of Marx’s materialistic, there is no God existence is only seen when vanity calls him to the gym. Read the whole story to see how sad a life lived in the “care” of Mammon ultimately wields the same hatred of humanity that has driven the demons since The Fall.
The Judgement Pornosphere™ Springs Into High, Scandalizing Gear After Las Vegas Massacre – They were quick to pounce and pronounce and take the usual sides and line up with the usual suspects and get to “posting” and “responding”… “they”, the not august hoi polloi that makes up what I call the Judgement Pornosphere™, sinful porn with your clothes on (we hope).
The Heresy Promoted By Pope Francis Thickens Its Machiavellian Plot – Chris Ferrara was on the Mike Church Show last Wednesday to explain the 25 page letter he and 61 other scholars signed and sent the Pope Francis in an exasperated attempt to correct the Pope’s now clearly, heretical “teaching” via Amoris Lætetia. This letter has now produced alarm in the Vatican as the revolutionaries finally realize their is a significant contingent of “traditionalists” who will not sheepishly bow to the shameful and sinful sop to Modernity and its author, Moloch’s perversion of The Faint. Ferrara:
“Pope Bergoglio is sending clear signals of concern about the rising opposition among the faithful to his master plan to subvert the Church according to his false notion of mercy. In a classic power move, he has just given a sop to Cardinal Burke, the perceived leader of the opposition, by appointing him to a minor position on the Apostolic Signatura—the same tribunal from which Bergoglio brutally removed him as Prefect. And this after also humiliating Burke as the spiritual patron of the Knights of Malta, to which he was exiled after his removal.“
What a perfectly, Machiavellian move! Here’s Ferrara’s conclusion.
“Will this sop buy Burke’s silence, staving off the feared public correction? We will soon know if the Cardinal can be bought so easily. But this move demonstrates—if more evidence were needed—that Bergoglio has never been the humble apostle of mercy depicted in his carefully crafted public relations narrative, but rather a cunning ecclesiastical politician, constantly plotting and scheming to get what he wants. That the neo-Catholic establishment refuses to recognize the grim reality of this unprecedented pontificate is but another page in the long annals of its shameful defense of the indefensible to the detriment of Holy Mother Church.”
Read the whole thing as the battle lines being drawn in the epoch struggle begin to get clearer.
Hugh Hefner And Fox News, Twins Separated At Birth – You know those daily comments I make on the Mike Church Show about the “conservative news network” that is Fox News. The ones about the dolls made up like soft-core porn stars but smiling on etc? I ain’t the only one who sees it. From today’s Ross Douthat column:”Conservatives should ask how their crusade for faith and family and community ended up so Hefnerian itself — with a conservative news network that seems to have been run on Playboy Mansion principles and a conservative party that just elected a playboy as our president….” Nothing to see here, MAGA flag waver, go back to Hannity idolatry and bombing 3rd world countries in undeclared unjust wars with Ollie North’s endorsement.
Speaking of Hefner, How Are Libs Treating Their Patron Saint Of “Freedom”? Dazed And Confused – Damon Linker can’t even answer his own question and gives 3 sets of equivocations stating that Hefner and his libertine sexual mores have been a benefit for “liberals and conservatives”, blah blah blah. Linker though misses the main point, intentionally because secularists cannot deal with that point: was he good for the souls of those his porn “touched”? I can answer that question pretty easily by quoting our Lord. “But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.” How many millions of young men, myself in that number began puberty with a declining Catholic catechism that was replaced by an immersion into lust and objectifying females without easy access to Playboy and all the other more raunchy copycats? Another example of why reading most secular journalism is not edifying for those seeking a Holy death and Blessed eternity.
Someone Take That Crying Baby To Mass! Why Regular Church Attendance Is Vital – We must balance the hedonist and spiritually listless nature of our neighbor’s and family’s lives with our own attempts at piety. This essay is the perfect encouragement for that.
The NFL, Can End Concussion Support But They Won’t Escape Penance For Their Violence – This article is a good start to the examination of conscience ‘Muricah is undergoing re: The NFL today. The towering inevitability of professional football no longer looks inevitable as the leagues sins have stacked up too high to notice. I haven’y even mentioned the leagues embrace of the abortion coddling Susan G Komen Foundation. As we learned i the series finale of Star Trek TNG, “All Good Things…”
Hollywood, Filled With Porn Pimping Demons Since 1969 – Maggie Gyllenhal throws all in with the misanthropes who say “pornography is an art form”. Really, is picking the perfect pose to photograph one have sex with the dead, necrophilia, an “art form”? What about spending time to make sure the object of your pedophilia perversion is dressed fashionably for the before the undressing photo, is that an art form?
The Traditionalist Redcoats Are Coming, The Traditionalist Red Coats Are Coming…On PBS!? – The TV series Poldark apparently has done what Netflix, amazon and HBO are incapable of of: making wholesome TV series that elevate the family and marriage (even through a bout of infidelity) instead of casting it as a punch line and fodder for good adultery jokes. Kudos to PBS.
Netflix’s Child Porn Show Big Mouth Has Raised 100,000 Citizens, Join Them Here.
Civil War 2.0? – The sides are forming and real battle lines are being drawn across the amber waves of discontent. I a m not alone in believing that a catastrophic event is on the horizon, one that could lead to a shooting war. I temper this dystopian future with the knowledge that this war already HAS begun, truly in spirit, and the casualties are mounting day by day – see the intentional perverting and sexualization of pre-pubescent children that begins tonight on Netflix. Andrew Sullivan sees this coming war in ideological and violent terms, i.e. is in the material world and I cannot say he is off the mark here either:
The project of American democracy — failed once, spectacularly, in the most brutal civil war any Western democracy has experienced in modern times. And here we are, in an equally tribal era, with a deeply divisive president who is suddenly scrambling Washington’s political alignments, about to find out if we can prevent it from failing again.
He’s right. Our allegedly star spangled awesome constitution made slavery legal, gave Southern states the legal right to defend it and ultimately led to the death of 840,000 ‘Muricans. To put that in today’s terms that would be 9-10 million men. This is why we would be far better served to separate peacefully NOW before the boiling point is reached.
Buchanan: What if Mr. Roy Moore Goes To Mordor? – Pat Buchanan has never backed away from the fact that our political affairs are informed by our spiritual affairs, a kind of lex orandi, lex credendi, lex polis. Buchanan wonders what will happen if Moore wins a Senate seat in AL and gets to confront the anti-conservatives e.g. Mitch McConnell and the boys?
Moore, should he win, is going to become an object of fascination in The Secular City. Yet his questions and concerns are those of the silent millions on the losing side of America’s culture war. Is the USA still a good and Godly country when 55 million abortions have been performed with the sanction of law in 45 years? Do court decisions that force Christians to act against their religious beliefs have to be obeyed? What is the duty of Christians in a paganized and perverted society?
From where we sit on the CRUSADE Channel the answer is “no”, we do not obey and we get to the business of laying the foundation for a new mainstream, like the have in Richmond NH and the Saint Benedict Center and at Clear Creek Abbey in OK.
Roy Moore Went Carmelite In AL Senate Primary, So Can You – Watch this video of the debate between Luther Strange and Judge Roy Moore, fast forward to the 05:12 mark and listen to Moore’s opening salvo as he accurately diagnoses the ills of ‘Muricah that have nothing to do with the political class’s politics so much as the elite ruling class’s total rejection of God in public life.
Baguul Netflix Has Come For The Kids & Is Broadcasting Pederasty – Netflix has a new original series called Loud Mouth that I have been reading warnings of for a while. Now that the preview is out we can say the speculation over: this is soft-core porn for pederast voyeurs. Watch the trailer (warning NOT safe for work or anywhere else for that matter) and witness horned demons egging the pre-teens on to masturbate, touch each other and in one vile scene, view their privates in a mirror. This is straight up kiddy porn and must already have pederasts ditching the real hard core stuff for what is now accepted by Netflix and “mainstream society”.
Schools Aren’t Job Training Centers, Time To Meet Saint Augustine, Schoolmaster – The purpose of education is not to put yewts through a regiment of rote and regimen designed to secure them a place alongside their future bosses, millennial losers, in a race to the bottom of sloth in vocation and underachievement in productivity of the human kind. Joseph Clair puts this into perspective for us at First Things and calls upon my patron Saint Augustine to do so. “Augustine was an educator, entrepreneur, and serial school founder. He abandoned the elite network of imperial educators at Milan to embark on new experiments in Christian learning, first in the lake country of Northern Italy, and later back home in Thagaste and Hippo, in his native North Africa. He saw that Christian revitalization and transformation of a decaying culture—indeed, of an entire civilization on the brink—required a new curriculum and new communities of learning. The schools he founded on the margins of the Roman world were more than retreats or resentful withdrawals—they sought to provide a wholly new intellectual itinerary that synthesized Christian thought with the riches of human wisdom expressed in ancient Greek and Roman letters. This synthesis must have seemed as improbable to his contemporaries as the reconciliation of science and religion or science and the humanities seems today.” There is a reason the Trivium and Quadrivium reigned over yewts and their schooling for near 3 millennia, we should humble ourselves and get back to them.
In Light Of Hugh Hefners Death: I thought I would bring this article back for reflection. 9 Reasons To Kick Porn To The Curb – Forget Ebola, porn is the real plague consuming our society. It is an epidemic of massive proportions and a growing public health crisis. The vast majority of men admit they regularly look at it: Lawyers, doctors, pastors, priests, husbands, it doesn’t matter. And despite the best efforts or protective parents, every child will be exposed to it sooner or later. As one expert on the issue says, it is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when.
Told Ya So: ObamaCare Is Here Forever, The Repeal Campaign Was A Hoax – On April 23rd, 2010, the U.S. House passed the reconciled version of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – ObamaCare – on April 24th the campaign to “repeal” it began and for 6 years, the GOP has used the canard that they would repeal the beast as a basis for their election. For that entire period I have maintained that the GOP was full of it and that they would ultimately wind up defending the parts of the monster they like. Last night the GOP surrendered to The State, it’s OVER. Today, you can close the “repeal” campaign offices and now get about the business of withdrawing from the union as the only real, effective “repeal” anyone in any state is going to get. Thanks “con-seeeeerv-vah-teee-uves”!
So calling out flag and anthem idolatry now makes one an elitist!?: No. “Elitist” is the hyperbolic belief that ‘Muricah is “special” and our view of how the rest of the world oughtta live must be obeyed or we’ll enforce it with drones, nukes and sanctions; yeah! USA! USA! USA! If only CATHOLICS thought that way about the New Christendom we are duty-bound to work for with pilgrimages, CRUSADES and Adoration-bombs (look it up): Christ-En-Dom!, Christ-En-Dom!, Christ-En-Dom! Your “country” is where you live and the people you love to call countrymen, it is not this totalitarian melange of ruling masters and their “government”. If you want a star-spangled anthem, try the one belonging to your state if you even know what it is. Better yet, try an enthronement anthem for Our Lady of The America’s, it’s called The Salve Regina.
The “Boycott The NFL” Campaign Proves My Maxim: We’re A War-Like People – We’ve made a sport a center stage for fake patriotism and glad-handed orgies of military superiority to whoever on Earth may be watching. Stephen Beale nails the militarization of football and how USA! USA! chanting, rabid fans have lapped it up.
In fact it has not stopped the war liturgy from playing out on the gridiron at all, and yes, given when and how it was mandated for players to honor it, the national anthem has been used a prop in this near-religious convocation. In recent years, soldier parading, flag-waving, and jumbotron shout-outs to warriors have become de rigueur at NFL games.
Existential support of “the military” for its intended purposes has given way to idolatry and religious devotion to it. Scour social media and marvel, nay be saddened by how many ‘Muricans proclaim themselves as “deplorables, prom MAGA and PRO MILITARY”, while simultaneously fretting about the Russian army which is nearly invisible these days. This is another form of our mass hysteria that holds that only our use and glorification of lethal force is justified and the it is the only force justified. As one WWII general put it, “NUTS!”
Hey MIC Lusting Lama! Many of Your “Heroes”, Spot Mandatory Standing For Anthems As Tools Of “Social Control – To watch the effects of 75 years of military propaganda via the idolatry of Francis Scott Key’s “anthem” is truly frightening folks. At least one former military member gets what is at play and it is not patriotism.
We—the vets of Iraq and Afghanistan—are not simple tools in an argumentative arsenal. To use us this way is to reduce the service and deaths of a generation of soldiers to mere political instruments in an incredibly divisive dispute. Whether you are a self-styled “conservative,” “liberal,” or “patriot,” you don’t own—and should not simplify— the veteran experience. Period. Full stop.
First, for those insisting on standing during national anthem: This sort of insistence on conformity is little more than an authoritarian application of social control. Cloaking one’s self in martial symbolism is an old, exhausted method used by reactionaries to enforce orthodoxy generation after generation.
Well said, patriot, well said.
2017 And The Immodesty Is About To Go Nuclear Because It WENT Nuclear – Venerable Bishop Sheen called out ‘Muricah back in the 1960’s while speaking to a group of young Catholics on “Youth and Sex”: “8:15 in the morning, the 6th of August, 1945, when we flew a military plane over this city, when we dropped that atomic bomb on it; that bomb on blotted out boundaries. There was no longer a boundary between the military and the civilian, between the helper and the helped, between the wounded and the nurse and the doctor, between the living and the dead. For even the living who escaped the bomb were already half dead. So we broke down boundaries and limits and from that time on the world has said we want no one limiting me. … You want no restraint, no boundaries, no limits. I have to do what I want to do. Now let’s analyze that for a moment, is that happiness?”
The Tragedy of Post Christian, Philosophia Perennis Devoid Thinking – Read this piece from AmConMag writer Noah Millman to get a closeup view of why Philosophia Perennis is so desperately needed to corral the erroneous thinking Men are sure to engage in when NOT grounded in the eternal quest for True Wisdom i.s. Sapientia. The issue Noah, is not whether “only the Saints” can live by the Magisterial code, it is that by God’s Grace the Saints DID live the Tradition WHILE receiving the Graces needed to do so. You cannot approach Grace as zero sum, mathematics, as in if I do ______ I will receive ______ “Grace credits” but if I do ______I will have deducted ______ Grace Credits. Grace is present in the world and we are given the supply needed at Baptism, the suffering of the Christian Faithful is simply to maintain the state you enter at Baptism, using the Gospels and the Traditional Teaching as MEANS to that END. As Padré Gaetano tells us in Humility of Heart: “And has not a saint abundant reasons, from the thought of his own weakness, to live always in a state of great humility, when he knows that from one hour to another he may lose the grace of God and the kingdom of heaven which he has merited by years of laboriously-acquired virtues? “Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.”
