Boston Catholics now allowed to not be Catholic on Fridays, according to their Archdiocese

 

Excellent comment by SatirevFlesti on Dreher’s apocalyptic freakout

“I anticipate that the crisis will result in a vastly more powerful state…”

This is far more pertinent to the reasons behind the deliberate economic and social destruction we are seeing than the actual risk of the virus itself. There are deep sinister forces at work deliberately using what is, ultimately, a rather common virus which has actually affected a small proportion of humanity in order to vastly restructure our entire way of life and aggregate even more power and control in the hands of a few powerful economic and government interests. There are deeply sinister forces at work.

“ A prolonged crisis that kills hundreds of thousands, and impoverishes hundreds of millions, could change a lot of people’s minds.”

Again, as since day 1, this assumption of hundreds of thousands dead, even millions dead, in the the USA and the rest of the West. Yet, even if we assume some fudged Chinese and other East Asian governments’ official numbers, they have already seen a massive decline in new cases and deaths in places closer to viral ground zero. Why then the assumption of endless 18- month or more catastrophe here? I’ve been hearing for two weeks that we are all just a week or two behind being just like Italy….still waiting. Except for the inept response in NYC, I see little evidence of actual viral catastrophe here in KY or elsewhere (just self-fulfilling catastrophe brought on by the deliberate economic destruction of people lives and livelihoods that is actually taking place). Conversations with friends who have doctors in the family and with nurses in the family this weekend indicates a distinct lack of any panic or imminent catastrophe at hand in their minds here, yet Rod and the rest of the mainstream media would have us believe we are all on the verge of apocalypse. Perhaps so, but not for the reasons they think.

And if the Church comes out of this worse off as well, it will be because it simply shut its doors and abandoned the faithful at the time of their greatest need. A good friend of my late father died this weekend, and his family won’t even be able to have a proper funeral because the milquetoast Novus Ordo Church would rather obey mammon than God. Who wants to return to a Church like that?

Tulsi Gabbard Exits Race, Backs Joe Biden

Yeah; I’ll bet dissident rightists who salivated over the Samoan Hindu surfer chick feel stupid now…

Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard announced she is ending her longshot White House bid Thursday and throwing her support behind former Vice President Joe Biden.

“After Tuesday’s election, it’s clear that Democratic primary voters have chosen Vice President Joe Biden to be the person who will take on President Trump in the general election,” Gabbard said in a video posted on Twitter. “So today, I am suspending my presidential campaign and offering my full support to Vice President Joe Biden in his quest to bring our country together.”

Gabbard, who distinguished herself in the primary by criticizing Democratic foreign policy hawks in the race said she would continue to promote an isolationist policy.

“I will continue to advocate for a 21st century foreign policy,” Gabbard said. “I will continue to do everything that I can to help bring about an end to the new cold war and nuclear arms race and end regime change wars.”

Yeah, yeah. If those were most important to her, she’d join Trump / Ron Paul / run as an independent, instead of joining the Machine in full, endorsing the senile, demented Establishment Deep State candidate…

Love the comments on the Federalist post…

Spot on, all.

 

O Believer Art Thou…

memoirandremains

O believer, art thou in poverty and straits? There is an incorruptible treasure in that house.

Is thine honour in the dust? A crown for thy head and a sceptre for thy hand await thee there.

Art thou shut up in solitude? There you shall enjoy eternal converse with God, the angels, and the saints.

Is your life full of bitterness? You will find rivers of pleasures there.

Are you weak and sickly? There grows the tree of life, whose leaves are for the healing of the nations.

Are you groaning under the tyranny of sin? There you shall walk in the glorious liberty of the sons of God.

Are defiled garments making you hang down your heads? You shall there shine in spotless robes of holiness.

Is fighting hard work? In that house ye shall for ever triumph.

Are you weary and almost fainting under the labours of the…

Rusty’s right

Caesar doesn’t have any right to that which belongs to God alone.

God is in charge of the Church, not Caesar.

 

Race, or religion? So confusing…
