Remembering His Passion

Good Friday, April 18, 2014.

Though strong as an ox, my erstwhile friend, the faux socialist Stephanie, is allergic to work. She would take a temporary job and, when it ends, apply for unemployment benefits. When the benefits run out, she’ll go find another temp job. And so on…. She diagnosed herself as bipolar and got her therapist to sign her off as “depressive.” No doubt, she now collects Social Security Disability.

Though raised a Christian, Stephanie is a goddess cultist, wiccan witch, and rabidly anti-Christian. In a fit of self-pity, the perfectly healthy Stephanie once blurted to me: “Don’t tell me how Jesus had suffered. I’ve suffered more than Jesus!”

Blasphemy

This post, “Remembering His Passion,” is for Stephanie, the “artist” Michael D’Antuono who painted the above blasphemous portrait of Obama in 2009, and all malignant narcissists who cheapen His memory by having the gall to compare themselves to Him.

He sweated blood.

After He and his disciples had observed the Passover meal in an upper room in a home in southwest Jerusalem, they traveled to the Mount of Olives, northeast of the city.

There, in the garden of Gethsemane, for 12 hours (from 9 PM Thursday to 9 AM Friday), He prayed. He saw all the sins of humanity — past, present, and future — and knew that the time of His death was near. Suffering great mental anguish, He sweated blood (hematidrosis). As a result of hemorrhage into the sweat glands, His skin became fragile and tender. In the cold night air, His hematidrosis would have produced chills.

He was scourged at least 39 times.

Scourging or flogging was a legal preliminary to every Roman execution. The usual instrument was a short whip (flagellum) with several single or braided leather thongs of variable lengths, in which small iron balls or sharp pieces of sheep bones were tied at intervals. Occasionally, staves also were used.

He was stripped of his clothing, His hands tied to an upright post. His back, buttocks, and legs were flogged either by two soldiers or by one who alternated positions. The scourging was intended to weaken Him to a state just short of collapse or death.

As the Roman soldiers repeatedly struck His back with full force, the iron balls caused deep contusions, and the leather thongs and sheep bones cut into His skin and subcutaneous tissues.Then, as the flogging continued, the lacerations tore into His underlying skeletal muscles and produced quivering ribbons of bleeding flesh. Pain and blood loss set the stage for circulatory shock.

His scalp was pierced with thorns.

The Roman soldiers, amused that this weakened man had claimed to be a king, began to mock Him by placing a robe on his shoulders, a crown of thorns on His head, and a wooden staff as a scepter in His right hand. Next, they spat on Him and struck Him on the head with the wooden staff.

The crown of thorns was not a crown at all. It was probably a bush roughly applied, and tied on with rope.

The thorns probably came from the Lote Tree, a wild bush that still grows freely all over the Holy Land. This bush had thorns between one to two inches long. There are over 70 scalp wounds visible on the Shroud (of Turin).

The soldiers’ beating with the rods to His head covered with this crown would have caused severe bleeding. It is probable that the clump of thorns was removed before His tunic was put back onto His body, and then reapplied during the Crucifixion. The blood trickling down from the newly opened head wounds suggest that the thorns were reapplied before the Crucifixion.

Imagine the pain you’d feel if just one thorn, measuring 1 to 2 inches long, were stuck into your scalp.

He carried his own cross, weighing 125 lb.

The severe scourging, with its intense pain and appreciable blood loss, most probably left Him in a pre-shock state. Moreover, hematidrosis had rendered his skin particularly tender. The physical and mental abuse, as well as the lack of food, water, and sleep, also contributed to His generally weakened state. Therefore, even before the actual crucifixion, His physical condition was at least serious and possibly critical.

It was customary for the condemned man to carry his own cross from the flogging post to the site of crucifixion outside the city walls.

Since the weight of the entire cross was probably well over 300 lb., “only” the crossbar or patibulum — weighing 75 to 125 lb. – was carried. The patibulum was placed across the nape of His neck and balanced along both shoulders, His outstretched arms tied to the crossbar. The processional to the site of crucifixion was led by a complete Roman military guard, headed by a centurion.

He was nailed to a cross to die

The Romans did not invent crucifixions, but they perfected it as a form of torture and capital punishment designed to produce a slow death with maximum pain and suffering. It was one of the most disgraceful and cruelest methods of execution and usually was reserved only for slaves, foreigners, revolutionaries, and the vilest of criminals.

At the site of execution, by law, He was given a bitter drink of wine mixed with myrrh (gall) as a mild analgesic. He was then thrown to the ground on his back, with his arms outstretched along the patibulum.

His hands were nailed to the crossbar at the wrists. The nails were tapered iron spikes approximately 5 to 7 inches long with a square shaft 3/8 in. across.

After both arms were fixed to the crossbar, He and the patibulum, together, were lifted onto the stipes. Next, His feet were nailed to the front of the stipes.

Every breath He took was a struggle, seared with pain.

The weight of His body, pulling down on the outstretched arms and shoulders, fixed the intercostal muscles in an inhalation state and thereby hinder passive exhalation. Accordingly, exhalation was primarily diaphragmatic, and breathing was shallow. This form of respiration would not suffice and hypercarbia (abnormally-elevated carbon dioxide levels in the blood) soon resulted. The onset of muscle cramps or tetanic contractions, due to fatigue and hypercarbia, further hindered His breathing.

To exhale, He had to lift His body by pushing up on His feet, flexing His elbows and adducting His shoulders. However, this maneuver placed the entire weight of the body on His tarsals, producing searing pain. Furthermore, flexion of His elbows caused rotation of His wrists about the iron nails, causing fiery pain along the damaged median nerves. Lifting of the body also painfully scraped His scourged back against the rough wooden stipes. Muscle cramps and paresthesias (pins and needles) of the outstretched and uplifted arms added to the discomfort. As a result, each respiratory effort became agonizing and tiring and led eventually to asphyxia (depletion of oxygen to the body).

After “only” 3 to 6 hours hung on the cross, He breathed his last.

He suffered terribly, unto death, for each one of us.

Remember His Passion today with the Stations of the Cross. Go here.

In memory of His love,

Vogue magazine: merchant of slut, violence and death

A Catholic blogger writes on April 9, 2014:

Great evil has been unleashed… There is great darkness upon the earth. And the existence of the Devil is no longer denied — it is celebrated!

Virtue is abandoned. There is no longer any reason to practice restraint… “Do what thou wilt.” …Fully satisfying the lusts of the flesh, evil spirits (demons) seduce people away from God, and lure them deeper into the darkness.

Fallen Lucifer, now Satan, is the god of the entertainment industry. Satanic rituals are performed on stage for the world to see. Christ is blasphemed; Christianity is mocked; Christians are persecuted…

The fashion world is part of the satanic pop culture, as seen in Vogue, which once was a classy fashion magazine.

For its April 2014 issue, the American edition of Vogue descended to having Kim Kardashian (not a fashion model) and rapper Kanye West (not a fashion model) on the magazine’s cover.

Vogue KK cover

Kim Kartrashian became a “celebrity” from a pornographic sex tape she had made with the singer Ray J in 2003, which was “accidentally” leaked and netted her $5 million.

Kim K sex tape

For his part, Kanye West once compared the “hardship” of rapping to being a soldier. Even worse, in his song “I Am A God,” he actually says he’s like (“a close high”) Jesus.

For its April issue, the Italian edition of Vogue went, not for sluttery, but for death.

This image is on the cover of the April 2014 issue of Vogue Italia:

The photo is one of 13 images by photographer Steven Meisel for the magazine’s cover story, “Cinematic.” Here are some of the other images, all featuring models wearing oh-so-chic designer clothes (by Valentino, Alberta Ferretti, Moschino, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, Fendi, Alexander McQueen….) in scenes of violence, murder, mayhem, and death.

Catholic University of San Diego goes satanic

Catholic universities in the United States regularly sponsor not just nonChristian, but downright anti-Catholic, speakers and events, including pro-abortionists.

But the University of San Diego (USD) in southern California has gone even further with a drag show a week ago “starring” a transvestite-sodomite-satanist.

Here is California Catholic’s exclusive report, “University of San Diego Goes Satanic,” April 14, 2014:

Despite the pronouncement of the Vatican’s Congregation for Education that its two prior drag shows were a scandal, USD held its third drag show on Thursday, April 10.

The master of ceremonies for the event was the local professional transvestite/drag queen Tootie Nefertootie (below). His website reveals him to be a gay activist who aggressively promotes same-sex marriage.

Tootie tranny
For his last diabolical selection of the evening, Tootie lip-synced the lyrics from the song “Good N’ Evil” by Linda Eder:

Good and evil -
And their merits -
Men have argued through history -
As well they should!
My philosophy
Any child can see -
“Good is evil -
And therefore
All evil is good

Tootie stripped off the black robe but kept on the goat-horned headdress with a skimpy outfit. The headdress resembles the satanic symbol Baphomet, usually portrayed as a half-human and half-goat figure. The goat-horned image of Baphomet is the symbol for the Church of Satan.

Tootie as devilThe day following the drag show, during his Friday morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis warned us that the Devil still exists and that he [the Devil] doesn’t want anyone to follow Christ. Also, in another speech on Friday, April 11, Pope Francis recognized the importance of gender when he made the following statement: “it is necessary to reaffirm the right of children to grow up in a family, with a father and a mother capable of creating an ideal environment for their development and emotional maturity.”

An article from the official Vatican News Service, Zenit, entitled “Gender Is Not A Choice”, illustrates some of the problems that result when society accepts the position that gender is malleable.

The drag show concluded with a student representative of  USD Gay Pride thanking  “the school for letting this happen…[because]…as you know some people may find this conversation uncomfortable…[however]…this is a testament to our…Catholic identity and our mission and values as a Catholic school to promote diversity and inclusion.”

The USD officials present at the drag show (some of whom participated as speakers and judges), again publicly maintained the university’s party line that the Catholic Church actually endorses “gender nonconformity”.  Donors listed at the bottom of the program include Urban Mo’s, part of Mo’s Universe, which is a group of gay restaurants and bars in Hillcrest.

The president of the U. of San Diego is Mary E. Lyons, Ph.D. Here’s her contact info:

Satanic Temple wants prayer in school to the Devil

crucifix repels vampireJust like their father, the Devil, who twists and perverts God’s words, Satanists in America are hell bent on exploiting the Constitution’s First Amendment guarantees for their purpose.

In 2009, the conservative-led Oklahoma state legislature approved a privately funded Ten Commandments monument, which was erected last year outside the state Capitol building.

While atheists and the ACLU oppose the Ten Commandment monument on the grounds of the First Amendment’s misinterpreted “separation of church and state” — a phrase not found in the First Amendment but originates in an 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson — a group of New York-based devil worshippers who call themselves the Satanic Temple, demand their right to erect a monument to Satan next to the Ten Commandments in the name of “religious parity.”

Below is the Satanic Temple’s proposed 7-foot-tall statue of Satan as Baphomet, a goat-headed figure with horns, wings and a long beard that’s often used as a symbol of the occult. In the rendering, Satan is sitting in a pentagram-adorned throne with smiling children next to him.

Baphomet

Now, the Satanic Temple, in the name of “protecting the children,” wants in on the right to pray in school – as long as they can pray to the devil.

Brownie Marie reports for Christianity Today, April 14, 2014, that the devil worshipers say they are fighting for the rights of public school students to learn in a cruelty-free classroom.

In a press release, the Temple declared May 15 as “Protect Children Day” to promote the rights of public school students to learn in a cruelty-free classroom, free of physical and mental abuse.

Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said, “One of the fundamental tenets of The Satanic Temple is personal sovereignty and the inviolability of one’s body and mind. Hitting a child or placing them in solitary confinement goes entirely against our beliefs. We want children to know that they are permitted to pray to Satan in school and that they can even share their religious beliefs with others in accordance with certain guidelines.”

Lucien GreavesGreaves makes the devil’s horns hand-sign (Oops! Excuse me! it’s really the “I love you” sign of deaf-mutes! No, it’s really the Texas Longhorns handsign! Sarc) at a Satanic Temple rally in Tallahassee, on Jan. 25, 2013, in support of Florida Governor Rick Scott’s Senate Bill 98.

Students are encouraged to register on Satanic Temple’s website, ProtectChildrenProject.com, where they are asked to submit their name, email address, and the name of their school in order to receive “help” from the Temple. The organization sanctimoniously insists that submission does not make one a Temple member, and is open to all denominations.

However, at the same time as ProtectChildrenProject.com provides fact sheets on physical and psychological abuse in schools, also available is a Satanic activity book.

Parents and grandparents, beware!!!!!!!!!

Israel Developing New Technology

 

1

 The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners. It’s an armored booth you step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on your person. Israel sees this as a win-win situation for everyone, with none of this racial profiling. It will also eliminate the costs of long and expensive trials. You’re in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter, an announcement: “Attention to all standby passengers, El Al is proud to announce a seat available on flight 670 to London. Shalom!”

Yes, Virginia, There are Racists in America, and They Don’t Like White People

White privilege conference
Yes, Virginia, There Are Racists in America, and They Don’t Like White People

Did you attend the fifteenth annual, tax-payer funded National White Privilege Conference? Hundreds of people did, almost all of them teachers and education officials at public schools and universities.

Here’s some of that they learned:

All members of the Tea Party are racists.

The longer a person remains with the Tea Party the more racist they become.

Tea Party groups are similar to white nationalist groups.

People who send their kids to private schools are racists.

People who disagree with (so-called) President Obama are racists.

Leonard Zeskin

Leonard Zeskind

All of the above statements came from author and activist Leonard Zeskind, a keynote speaker at the event which took place March 26-29 in Madison, Wisconsin.

“There has been a longitudinal study that finds the longer you are in the tea party, the more racist you become,” Zeskind said, according to the MacIver Institute, which covered the conference.

The Daily Caller reported on a different session, in which a former high school teacher claimed that teaching was a fundamentally political act and all teachers who were unwilling to use their post to rail against white oppression should “get the fuck out” of education.(RELATED: White Privilege Conference: Being white is like being an alcoholic)

Attendees paid hundreds of dollars each to attend this conference, and while I have no doubt that speakers, such as Leonard Zeskind, know that they’re peddling a load of BS, many of the attendees actually believe this nonsense. And they’re the ones who are teaching America’s kids. How does that grab you?

Somebody correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems like race relations in this country have deteriorated ever since aka Obama took office. And it further seems as if that deterioration has occurred purposely, in order to separate Americans and drive them apart.

Does anyone else feel this way, or is it just me? Perhaps this has been going on all along and my eyes have just recently been opened. Common sense and courteousness have gone out the window over the last five plus years.

We didn’t have the knockout game five years ago.

We didn’t have politicians getting caught red-handed in Pennsylvania for engaging in criminal activity, yet not prosecuted because of their skin color.

What is happening to our once great country?

7 of 10 black babies don’t have dads

black AmericaCarol Morello reports for The Washington Post, May 1, 2013, that the latest Census Bureau report shows that single motherhood, while on a steady uptick since the 1940s, has accelerated in recent years. The birth rate for unmarried women in 2007 was up 80% in the almost three decades since 1980. But in the previous five years alone, between 2002 and 2007, it was up 20%.

Today, more than six out of 10 women who give birth in their early 20s are unmarried. Overall, 36% of all births in the United States were to unmarried mothers in 2011, the year that the census analyzed from answers provided in the American Community Survey.

Other findings from the report:

  • There are harp discrepancies in single mothers related to income, education and race.Women with college degrees and higher household incomes are far less likely to be single mothers than are women who have lower household incomes and less education.
  • In Washington, D.C., more than half of all births, 51%, were to unwed mothers. Maryland also had a higher rate than the national average, with 39% of all births out of wedlock.
  • Asian mothers were the least likely to be unmarried, with just 11% of new Asian mothers being single.
  • White single mothers also were below the national average, at 29%. Among
  • 43% of all new Hispanic mothers were unmarried.
  • The highest rate of unwed single mothers is among blacks: 68% of all African American women who had recently given birth were unmarried.

Study after study has shown that single motherhood is a recipe for poverty, which means more and more U.S. children, especially black children, are growing up in poverty.

And for that, there’s no one to blame but pop culture, the welfare state that replaces men as breadwinners, the irresponsible sperm-donors and the women themselves.

The Census Bureau attributes the long-term increase in single mothers in large part to changing norms for sexual behavior and a decrease in marriage rates.
