By Father Linus Clovis of Saint Lucia

A crisis is a time of intense difficulty or danger. Medically, it is the turning point of a disease when an important change takes place, indicating either recovery or death.

Bishop Athanasius Schneider has identified four great crises in the Church: Arianism, the Western Schism, the Reformation and Modernism. This last, which the Church has been fighting for well over a century, has managed to get a stranglehold on the Church ever since the close of the Second Vatican Council. St. Pius X called it the synthesis of all heresies.

For the last half century, the majority of Catholics, entrusting themselves to the vigilance of their pastors, have been fitfully sleeping up until now, when they were rudely awakened by the alarm bells set off by the 2014 Extraordinary Synod on the Family. A future Jerome may well lament that “on awaking, they groan to find themselves modernist.” The drama of the Synod played out in the media with cardinal opposed to cardinal, bishop against bishop, and national conferences of bishops resisting other national conferences, thus appearing as a literal fulfilment of the prophecy made by Our Lady at Akita on October 13, 1973: “The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres… the Church will be full of those who accept compromises.”

Then suddenly, some shepherds began to speak with a strange voice. With stupefying temerity, Timothy Cardinal Dolan, commenting on the “coming out” of a “gay” college football star, told NBC’s “Meet the Press”: “Good for him… I would have no sense of judgment on him…. God bless ya. I don’t think, look, the same Bible that tells us, that teaches us well about the virtues of chastity and the virtue of fidelity and marriage also tells us not to judge people. So I would say ‘Bravo’.”

With such statements and actions by prominent and powerful prelates, crowned with the pontifical saw “who am I to judge,” traditional minded bishops, priests and even laity are disarmed and hamstrung. After all, in holding to the traditional Catholic moral teaching and order they would soon be accused of being more Catholic than the pope. This disarming of the clergy and hierarchy constitutes the Francis Effect.

The Pope

Catholics love the pope. Whoever he is, wherever he hails from, he always represents for them an evident and effectual sign of the presence of Christ in the world. Even before Our Lady asked the children at Fatima to pray for the Holy Father, repeating this request at Akita on 13 October, 1973, saying “pray very much for the pope, bishops and priests,” Catholics have prayed for him daily and not only look to him for leadership but also regard him as that firm and sure foundation on which the Church’s teaching authority is built. For Catholics the purity of teaching is so important that it is easier for them to accept the possibility that the ‘pope’ may not, in fact, be the pope than it is for them to believe that a pope could be a teacher of error.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) teaches that the “Gospel is handed on in two ways: orally (Sacred Tradition) and in writing (Sacred Scripture) and is continually proclaimed through the apostolic succession (Magisterium).” It goes on to define Sacred Scripture as “the speech of God as it is put down in writing under the breath of the Holy Spirit,” and consequently, being inspired by God, it is “profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.” In paragraph 81, the Catechism affirms that “Tradition transmits in its entirety the Word of God which has been entrusted to the apostles by Christ the Lord and the Holy Spirit” and that it is transmitted to the bishops, “the successors of the apostles so that, enlightened by the Spirit of truth, they may faithfully preserve, expound, and spread it abroad by their preaching.”

Throughout his letters, St. Paul insisted that he had not invented any new doctrine, nor had he deviated from what he himself had received. Regarding the Eucharist, in particular, he stated: “For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread …” (1 Cor. 11:23), and he went on to warn in verse 29 that “For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself.” Even more forcefully, he told the Galatians there are some who want to pervert the gospel of Christ, and so “even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be accursed” (Gal.1:8).

In regard to the Magisterium or Church’s Teaching Office, the Catechism in paragraph 85 declares that “the task of giving an authentic interpretation of the Word of God, whether in its written form or in the form of Tradition, has been entrusted to the living, teaching office of the Church alone.” Since the Church exercises its authority in the name of Jesus Christ, it follows that “the task of interpretation has been entrusted to the bishops in communion with the successor of Peter, the Bishop of Rome.” Moreover, the Catechism in §86 goes on to point out that the “Magisterium is not superior to the Word of God, but is its servant. It teaches only what has been handed on to it. At the divine command and with the help of the Holy Spirit, it listens to this devotedly, guards it with dedication, and expounds it faithfully. All that it proposes for belief as being divinely revealed is drawn from this single deposit of faith.”

The Magisterium has the authority to bind definitively the consciences of the faithful in regard to matters of faith or morals and does so with dogmatic definitions, as CCC §88 makes clear: “The Church’s Magisterium exercises the authority it holds from Christ to the fullest extent when it defines dogmas, that is, when it proposes, in a form obliging the Christian people to an irrevocable adherence of faith, truths contained in divine Revelation or also when it proposes, in a definitive way, truths having a necessary connection with these.”

The Papal Magisterium, according to the teaching of Vatican I (D. 3070), was not established to reveal new doctrine but rather to guard and transmit faithfully the truths of faith entrusted by Christ to His Apostles: “The Holy Spirit has not been promised to the successors of Peter to reveal, by His inspiration, a new doctrine, but to scrupulously guard and make known with fidelity, by His assistance, the revelation transmitted by the Apostles, that is, the deposit of faith.”

Whilst the faithful owe obedience to the pope as the Vicar of Christ, the pope himself owes obedience to the Word and Apostolic Tradition and, in so doing, facilitates the faithful in their obedience to him. In a world not dissimilar to that when “for a long time Israel was without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law” (2 Chr. 15:3), it is necessary that the pope be wise and clear in his teaching so that those hearing him may avoid the snares of death: “Take heed to yourself and to your teaching; hold to that, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers” (1 Tim. 4:16). Pope Felix III, living in a world inimical to the Gospel message, saw the necessity of correcting error and reinforcing truth, saying that an error which is not resisted is approved; a truth which is not defended is suppressed.

Pope Francis

Within the first year of his pontificate, Pope Francis had managed to unsettle even the most uncritical of Catholics, who tried desperately to explain away the ambiguity of his words and actions. The fact that the Church’s traditional enemies approve highly of him raises concerns, not least because of the Lord’s warning that “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you; if they kept my word, they will keep yours also” (Jn. 15:18-20).

Catholic concerns increased in proportion to the density of the fog covering the pope’s true position on key issues. It is reported that as archbishop in Buenos Aires, apparently wishing to be loved by all and to please everyone, he would send out mixed signals, “so one day he could make a speech on TV against abortion, and the next day, on the same TV show, bless the pro-abortion feminists in the Plaza de Mayo; can give a wonderful speech against the Masons and, a few hours later, be dining and drinking with them in the Rotary Club.” St. John records that some of Christ’s followers were Pharisees: “many even of the authorities believed in him, but for fear of the Pharisees they did not confess it, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God” (Jn. 12:42-43).

To the consternation of Catholics and the satisfaction of the world, Pope Francis, by word and action, has provoked many major controversies, the most egregious of them being the “Who am I to judge?” comment. This pontifical question instantly disarmed all those resisting the incursions of the gay lobby. The Holy Father failed to make the required distinctions, namely, that the Church does not judge persons but that she has the right and duty to judge their actions and teachings. The Church has passed no judgement of the personal morals of even arch-heretics, though she has certainly warned the faithful of the perniciousness of their teachings. In writing to the Corinthians, St. Paul himself sanctions this position: “But rather I wrote to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber—not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. “Drive out the wicked person from among you” (1 Cor. 5:11-13).

Catholics became even more concerned when the papal utterances seemed to attack the flock, such as the claim that a “supposed soundness of doctrine or discipline leads instead to a narcissistic and authoritarian elitism” and the complaint that there was too much talk about contraception and abortion. Who, apart from pro-lifers, could this be directed against? Vittorio Messori in his book “The Defense of Every Life” quoted St. John Paul II as saying “It is difficult to imagine a more unjust situation (abortion), and it is very difficult to speak of obsession in a matter such as this, where we are dealing with a fundamental imperative of every good conscience – the defense of the right to life of an innocent and defenseless human being.” The vast majority of Catholics can testify that the generality of the preachers of the Gospel never broach the issue of contraception or abortion. Yet, about these things St. Paul instructs preachers to “be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching” (2 Tim. 4:2).

The Rabbitgate affair was particularly hard on Catholic mothers worldwide, especially those who, at great personal sacrifice, had given birth to their children. The pope who had said “who am I to judge” now says, “I rebuked a woman some months ago in a parish who was pregnant eight times, with seven C-sections (cesareans). ‘But do you want to leave seven orphans?’ This is to tempt God! He [Paul VI] speaks of responsible parenthood.” Not content with rebuking this particular woman, he extends it worldwide: “God gives you methods to be responsible. Some think that, excuse me if I use that word, that in order to be good Catholics we have to be like rabbits. No. Responsible parenthood! This is clear and that is why in the church there are marriage groups, there are experts in this matter, there are pastors, one can seek and I know so many, many ways out that are licit and that have helped this.”

In the present climate of the pastoral imperative, his position on Humanae vitae, the touchstone of Catholic sexual ethics, is uncertain, especially as there is talk of going beyond what it teaches. Equally alarming is his apparent openness to ‘gay marriage’ in the form of ‘civil unions’. Most troubling of all is his open support for Cardinal Kasper who, at the 2014 Synod, called for admitting remarried divorcees to the Eucharist without them changing their marital status. This cut Catholics to the bone and provoked concerns about the pope’s orthodoxy.

These ambiguous papal utterances cause not only concern but also confusion among Catholics who, for the most part, are fearful of criticising or judging the pope. But here, as above, a distinction needs to be made. It is not the person of the pope that is being judged but rather his actions. It must also be stated that the judgement of his actions is not being done with the intention to cause indignation but on the contrary is being done because his actions are the cause of indignation among the faithful and a threat to their faith.

This judgement on the pontiff can be made on the authority of St. Paul who told the Galatians that “when Cephas came to Antioch I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. For before certain men came from James, he ate with the Gentiles; but when they came he drew back and separated himself, fearing the circumcision party. And with him the rest of the Jews acted insincerely, so that even Barnabas was carried away by their insincerity. But when I saw that they were not straight-forward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas before them all, ‘If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews?’” (Gal. 2:11-14).

There is also historical precedent for such judgement on papal actions. The theologians of the University of Paris, cardinals, bishops, and kings opposed John XXII (1316-1334) when, in his Sunday sermons, he incorrectly taught that the Blessed do not see God until after the General Judgement. In the sixteenth century, Melchior Cano, a Spanish theologian at the Council of Trent, warned against obsequiousness regarding the pope: “Now it can be said briefly that those who defend blindly and indiscriminately any judgment whatsoever of the Supreme Pontiff concerning every matter weaken the authority of the Apostolic See; they do not support it; they subvert it; they do not fortify it. … Peter has no need of our lies; he has no need of our adulation.” In our time, the 1983 Code of Canon Law also recognizes the right of the faithful in this regard where it states that “according to the knowledge, competence, and prestige which they possess… the faithful have the right and even at times the duty to manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church and to make their opinion known to the rest of the Christian faithful…” (§ 212:3).


The Church now faces the spectacle of cardinals and bishops in open conflict with each other over doctrine and pastoral measures. At the 2014 Extraordinary Synod on the Family the leading members of the Church’s hierarchy, with a few notable exceptions, openly and publicly debated the circumnavigation of the very words of Our Lord Jesus Christ in order to institutionalize the sexual revolution in the Church by the admission of remarried divorcees to Holy Communion. If this is accepted, then Clement VII was wrong in his treatment of Henry VIII and the English reformation was unnecessary. Further, why should cohabiting couples and practicing unrepentant homosexuals be denied Holy Communion? There is something déjà vu about all this: “All the leading priests and the people likewise were exceedingly unfaithful, following all the abominations of the nations; and they polluted the house of the Lord which he had hallowed in Jerusalem. The Lord, the God of their fathers, sent persistently to them by his messengers, because he had compassion on his people and on his dwelling place; but they kept mocking the messengers of God, despising his words, and scoffing at his prophets, till the wrath of the Lord rose against his people, till there was no remedy. Therefore he brought up against them the king of the Chaldeans, who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion on young man or virgin, old man or aged; he gave them all into his hand” (2 Chron. 36:14-17). With Islam growing in strength, could it in our time provide the remedy comparable to that brought by the Chaldean king?

The Francis Effect is the disarming and silencing of Catholic bishops, priests, and laity. Holding firm to Catholic doctrine and practice seems like an act of disloyalty to the pope, yet to acquiesce is to betray the Church. Catholics ask with Peter, “Lord, to whom shall we go?” (Jn. 6:69). It is imperative that they stay in the Church and stay armed for, if the shepherds have come down like Aaron to join in the Bacchanalia, then the Church needs Levites. “And when Moses saw that the people had broken loose (for Aaron had let them break loose, to their shame among their enemies), then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, ‘Who is on the Lord’s side? Come to me.’ And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together to him” (Ex. 32:25-27). Christ had already warned of this time, saying, “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away, … and many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because wickedness is multiplied, most men’s love will grow cold. But he who endures to the end will be saved” (Mt. 24:9-13).

The Church is facing crisis; a crisis as grave as that posed by the Arians. Its resolution will bring recovery or death. To achieve the former, Catholics must stay in the Church and stay fully armed. For this, five things are necessary:

First, pray. The battle is the Lord’s. “But watch at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of man” (Lk. 21:36). Pray above all for the pope as the early Church prayed unremittingly for Peter (Acts 12:5).

Second, study. Catholics must know the Faith, be familiar with the Scriptures, know the constant teaching of the Church, and understand the principles of moral theology. St. Athanasius stood alone against the world, therefore, “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God; consider the outcome of their life, and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not be led away by diverse and strange teachings” (Heb. 13:7-9).

Third, transmit the Faith by teaching and sharing it within the family, by practicing and praying together and for each other as a family.

Fourth, support each other and all true and authentic Catholic speakers and organizations. The 500 priests who sign an open letter asking that the Synod on the Family promote Catholic doctrine need to be praised and supported by all concerned Catholics.

Fifth, prepare for martyrdom. In the Nobis quoque of the Roman Canon we pray: To us, also, your servants, who, though sinners, hope in your abundant mercies, graciously grant some share and fellowship with your holy Apostles and Martyrs: with John the Baptist, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas… and all your Saints; admit us, we beseech you, into their company, not weighing our merits, but granting us your pardon, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Jesus Was Not a Wimp

Jesus Was Not A Wimp

The Left loves to rewrite reinvent history, and one of their favorite targets is the historical life of Jesus.

Talk to most anyone on the Left, whether a priest, a pastor, or a civilian, and you’ll come away with the impression that Jesus was a tree-hugging, diversity-loving, promoter of tolerance for all. Nothing could be further than the truth.

“And he found in the temple them that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting.

“And when he had made, as it were, a scourge of little cords, he drove them all out of the temple, the sheep also and the oxen: and the money of the changers he poured out, and the tables he overthrew.

“And to them that sold doves he said: Take these things hence, and make not the house of my Father a house of traffic.” John 2:13

Does that sound like the kind of Jesus we get from today’s watered-down Church?

Jesus was not afraid to call sin for what it is and he wasn’t above a little name-calling to make a point. Indeed, he often referred to the Leftists of his day as vipers, serpents, and hypocrites.

Jesus loved everyone, and he still does, but he also knew that to engage in homosexual acts is an abomination before God: “And whosever shall not receive you, nor hear your words: going forth out of that house or city shake off the dust from your feet. Amen I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgement than for that city.” Matthew 10:14

Jesus loved children, and he was adamantly pro-life. “And whosoever shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me: it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and he were cast into the sea.” Mark 9:41

Does that leave any doubt as to the fate of eternal damnation that awaits those who support or practice abortion?

Jesus was not a vegetarian or a member of PETA. He frequently ate fish, as did all the Apostles.

Jesus was physically strong, as evidenced by his carrying of the cross. I doubt if even 5% of today’s bodybuilders and professional athletes could manage that feat.

Jesus was not a tree-hugging environmentalist. He understood that the earth is here to serve man, not the other way around. “And in the morning, returning into the city, he was hungry. And seeing a certain fig tree by the way side, he came to it and found nothing on it but leaves only. And he saith to it: May no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And immediately the fig tree withered away.” Matthew 21:18

With all the evil occurring in the world today, Jesus would take one look at the Church’s preoccupation with the environment and “Global Warming” and call it for what it is: an insult to God.

In short, Jesus stood for everything that’s in stark contrast to the dictates of the Left (and the dictates of the Left just happen to be the platform of the Democratic Party).

The message we get from today’s Christian and Catholic leaders appears to be “go along to get along,” but that attitude is the exact opposite of everything that Jesus taught. If we wish to emulate Jesus, it’s necessary for us to follow the true example of his life, not the fairy tale version the Left would have us believe.

Bryan Fisher, the host of Focal Point, put it best: God has not called us to be nice. He called us to be good.


Catholics Need Not Apply

‘Catholics need not apply’: Toronto city council blasted for rejecting appointee over her Catholic views

Catholic , Freedom Of Religion , Toronto

TORONTO, April 2, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) — Two Toronto Catholic trustees have accused Toronto city hall of anti-Catholic bias after councilors voted 20-17 on March 31 to bar Catholic school trustee Angela Kennedy from the Toronto public health board because of her Catholic views.

Kennedy and Toronto Catholic school board chair Mike Del Grande are backed up by their board, which released a statement April 2 objecting to the city’s “discriminatory treatment” of Kennedy. “Ms. Kennedy has been unfairly vilified for her personal views on matters relating to her position as an elected Catholic Trustee, which in our opinion is a flagrant violation of her religious freedoms,” Del Grande stated in the release.

Kennedy told LifeSiteNews that news of her selection – the first time in 13 years a Catholic trustee had been appointed to fill the single school board seat on the 13-member public health board – was leaked to the media “a couple of days ago.”

Councilor Joe Mihevc, chair of the public health board, then took the “unprecedented” step of introducing a motion Monday night to replace her with public school trustee Chris Glover, she said.

Toronto Catholic District School Board trustee Angela Kennedy
Kennedy is staunchly pro-life, opposed to so-called “gay-straight alliances,” and has voted against using the schools to disseminate the HPV vaccination.

“You cannot put on the recreation committee someone that is against sports and recreation,” Mihevc argued, according to the City Centre Mirror. “You cannot put on the committee of adjustment someone who’s against development.”

Mihevc repeated similar analogies to the Toronto Sun’s Don Peat April 1, when he dismissed the charges of anti-Catholicism. “You should not be chosen for the library board if you are opposed to the library system,” Mihevc, who said he’s Catholic, told Peat. “You should not be on the committee of adjustment if you can’t support the mandate of committee of adjustment which is minor variances, if you’re going to oppose everything.”

Mihevc’s office told LifeSiteNews that the councilor was busy all day and tomorrow as well, and not be available to comment.

Both Del Grande and Kennedy say the city’s vote amounts to anti-Catholic discrimination, a charge supported by Canada’s national pro-life, pro-family lobbying group Campaign Life Coalition.

“I knew this was coming, I could have written the script,” Del Grande told LifeSiteNews. “Catholics need not apply. This is discrimination at its best.” Catholics make up 33 percent of Toronto’s population, but when it comes to a seat at the table or representation on council, “we’re no different from the Jews, the blacks, or the Irish,” he said. “This city mouths one thing and does another.”

Del Grande found it particularly disturbing that Mihevc, who “claims to be a Catholic” was the one who “led the charge” against Kennedy.

“I’m pretty disappointed,” Kennedy told LifeSiteNews. “I feel like my religious freedom, my freedom of speech, my freedom of conscience, my freedom of religion to hold the views that I believe in, they have been violated.”

She is discussing options to appeal the decision with her lawyer, Kennedy added, and is considering filing a complaint with the city’s integrity commissioner, and the human rights commission.

Kennedy, who has been a registered nurse for 45 years, said that the appointment committee selected her after “a rigorous application process and an interview and an appointment from my board.”

In the board’s press release, Kennedy stated that, “for nearly half a century, I have been providing residents of this great and diverse city with quality healthcare without prejudice or discrimination on the basis of their religious beliefs, sexual orientation or political affiliation – And I expected to receive the same treatment.”

City hall has ignored its own process by voting her out, she told LifeSiteNews. “Their own selection committee nominated me, now they’ve turned around and said, you can’t have a position on the board of health.”

Joe Cressy, Paula Fletcher, and Gord Perks were among councilors who voted against Kennedy on March 31. “These are actually human rights issues, the right for gays and lesbians to lead an equal life in the city of Toronto,” Fletcher said, according to the Toronto Star.

Perks objected that Kennedy was unsuitable, because the city health board delivers certain programs such as encouraging safer sex. The motion was about “whether or not we are prepared to appoint people who support the legal mandate of the entity they are being appointed to,” he was quoted as saying in the Star.

Mayor John Tory supported Kennedy’s appointment, but made it clear he disagreed with her views. “If we started applying every test based on whether we disagree with somebody’s views on people we appoint to things . . . it’s sure going to change the nature of this place,” he said.

During the council meeting, counselors Fletcher and Cressy referenced Campaign Life Coalition’s website, which recorded Kennedy’s votes as a Catholic trustee.

Jonathan Goldsbie of NOW Magazine tweeted that Paula Fletcher “touches on Kennedy’s opposition to HPV vaccine: ‘This is a vaccine Campaign Life doesn’t like because it’s about HAVING SEX!’” He also tweeted: “Here’s Kennedy’s voting record, from which [Counselor Joe] Cressy was reading” and referred to Campaign Life Coalition’s website.

Campaign Life Coalition’s Jack Fonseca said, “The opposition to Angela’s appointment, seemingly spearheaded by Councilor Mihevc, is clearly rooted in anti-Christian bigotry. He opposes her appointment because he doesn’t like her Catholic religious beliefs. That’s discrimination under the Ontario Human Rights Code.”

Toronto’s board of health consists of six councilors, six citizens and one school board representative. Del Grande, formerly a city councilor for Scarborough-Agincourt, said that school board seat used to alternate between Catholic and public school boards each year. “When public health wants to come in to our schools, and we are one third of the population, do you not think we should have any voice?”

Del Grande had written to the appointment committee on Kennedy’s behalf, pointing out that “ongoing lack of representation” from Catholics on the Board of Health “is an enormous disservice to this large constituency,” according to the City Centre Mirror.

“Angela Kennedy wouldn’t be enough to overtake the board of health,” he told LifeSiteNews, “but she would bring to the table a different lens. She’s a nurse, she’s a woman, and yes, she’s a practicing Catholic.” Toronto’s motto, he added, is “diversity is our strength.”

Both Kennedy and Del Grande noted that the nomination process is usually conducted in private. After Kennedy’s selection was leaked to the media, she was questioned by a reporter about her views on abortion and gay-straight alliances, and asked if she is “homophobic,” she told LifeSiteNews.

Del Grande, formerly Toronto’s budget chief and a three-term councilor, said that the city “made a grave, grave error” by disclosing Kennedy’s name before the appointment was announced. “I was there 11 years, when we dealt with these in things in private.”

“Angela’s name should not have been in the public domain, this is a private item in private session,” he added. “Not only was she turned down but she was put out for public execution.”

CLC’s Fonseca urged “fair-minded Torontonians who believe that employment discrimination on the basis of religion is wrong” to contact their councilor and “demand they allow Angela’s appointment to continue.”

Do You Know Anyone Who Is Going To Hell?


What is hell?

We’re told that it’s a place of utter anguish and torment. An eternal destination for those who turn their backs on God and reject the Ten Commandments. Imagine the most painful, the most degrading, the most unspeakable torture you can imagine, multiply it by a thousand, and it probably will not come close to the reality of hell.

Flesh-eating demons, eternal fire, the stench of sulfur…

There’s no sleeping in hell. No rest or reprieve from continuous suffering and agony. And it lasts forever.

So who goes to hell?

Those who commit murder are going to hell.

Those who lie and deceive in order to gain money or political power are going to hell. (Anyone come to mind?)

Those who practice abortion are going to hell.

Those who knowingly vote for Democratic candidates who legislate for abortion are going to hell.

Those who peddle pornography are going to hell, including most mainstream television, movies, and magazines.

Those who dress or pose immodestly, drawing others to sin, are going to hell.

Those who have sold their souls in exchange for fame and success are going to hell.

Those who legislate or resort to subterfuge in an effort to disarm the American people are going to hell.

Those who work to remove God, prayer, and Christianity from schools and society are going to hell.

Those who abuse their positions of religious or spiritual leadership with false teachings of progressivism, multiculturalism, diversity, and socialism are going to hell.

Those who teach our children and pollute their minds with false teachings of progressivism, multiculturalism, diversity, and socialism are going to hell.

Those who live off the work of others, while refusing to work themselves, are dangerously close to going to hell.

Those who promote and encourage racism through diversity, multiculturalism, and socialist policies are dangerously close to going to hell.

Those who are angry and indignant at reading this because they recognize themselves are most likely going to hell, if they don’t change.

Do you know anyone who is going to hell?

UK Equips 10 Year Olds With Birth Control

What starts in the UK, ends up in the US. Sadly, all this is promoted by our government schools which teach the children every form of sex there is, including bestiality. Yes, even sex with animals has been taught in American schools. The state of Maine is the culprit on that one. In the 60s, our health classes were about hygiene and reproduction, but not outside marriage and not co-ed. Today, everything is taught, including homosexual sex to children as young as five.

And what are we doing to their bodies?  Age 10 is far too young to have a birth control substance in their little undeveloped bodies.  As an aside, it’s been documented that spaying or neutering dogs before age two makes them much more likely to develop immune system problems like diabetes, Cushings Disease, and various other abnormalities. Early fixing of animals does not allow the hormones to properly feed the body until adulthood.  It’s just the opposite with young girls.  They are feeding these youngsters hormones their bodies don’t need and won’t need for decades, and the health risks down the road are looking very ominous.

I cannot imagine what these little ones think, but their brains are programmed from an early age and then is it any wonder we have so many out-of-wedlock pregnancies and abortions on young girls…some of them so young you have to wonder what kind of parents were in charge.

Again, what starts in the UK ends up in the US, and this too is population control, a la UN Agenda 21, along with the destruction of our culture and mores.


Here’s the story from One News Now

While organizations such as the United Nations promote sexual options for children in Europe and the U.K., many Third World countries oppose having those values forced on them.

In the United Kingdom, girls as young as ten years old are being injected with long-term contraceptive implants at the expense of taxpayers. Brian Clowes of Human Life International [says that] while the health impact on little girls isn’t known, manufacturers do list side effects for adults.

“You can see a list of more than 50 major side effects,” he says. “Everything from deep vein thrombosis, blood clots, death, growing hair all over the body, and so on. I just find it ridiculous. We’re against steroid use in sports but we’re willing to pump our little ten-year-old girls full of steroids like this.

The United Nations and groups associated with it are pushing the agenda even further.

“They’re [essentially] saying Kids have the right to sex education, and if we’re going to educate them about sex, of course then we have to give them condoms, we have to give them birth control without their parents knowing about it,'” he remarks. “And then they turn around and say But this won’t increase sexual behavior. And that is as stupid as saying we will give kids the keys to the car, but it won’t increase driving behavior.”

The program has been spread throughout much of Europe and also into Third World countries, where moral values are much more in line with the Bible than in Europe and the United States. Clowes says many of those countries are tired of having conflicting sexual and moral values pushed on them.

The Average American

The average American spends five hours a day in front of the boob tube. They love their super heroes, their sports heroes, and their reality television stars. (They especially love their Kardashian sisters.) To the average American, a world of fantasy and illusion is preferable to real life.

The average American is obsessed with sex (possibly because they aren’t getting any), and obsessed with celebrities. Because their own lives are so petty and lacking in spiritual foundation, the average American worships fame and seeks to experience it vicariously through others.

The average American lives on a diet of fast food, junk food, processed food, and microwaved food. As a result, the average American is sick, sick, sick, addicted to numerous drugs and painkillers, and a virtual slave to the medical mafia.

The average American has one great fear: criticism. This fear of criticism is greater than their desire to succeed, their desire to know the truth, and even their desire to live. As a result, the average American is in firm acceptance of whatever authority figures or the mainstream media tells them. They accept wholeheartedly the “official story” of 9/11, Sandy Hook, Boston, and the biography of the man who calls himself Obama.

Because of this fear, the average American is gullible and easily swayed by advertising and the mainstream media. Any huckster, devoid of morality, can easily become a millionaire (or political leader) by exploiting this lack of critical thinking on the part of average Americans, and many have.

The average American prefers to have others tell them what to think and how to think, rather than think for themselves. The average American eats, dresses, and votes exactly how they are told. Their entire life, from birth to death, is programmed, controlled, and manipulated, and they don’t even know it.

The average American knows nothing about the Federal Reserve, how the Federal Reserve was created, or how the Fed prints fiat currency out of thin air. What’s worse, the average American has no interest in knowing. They’d rather watch television.


The average American lives a life of hypocrisy and denial. They identify with Christianity, or, in ever increasing numbers, they claim to be “spiritual, but not religious,” and yet they support political leaders who promote abortion, racism, inequality, the shredding of the Constitution, the loss of freedom and individual rights, and even murder.

The average American becomes angry and defensive when their belief system is challenged. They want to be certain of what they know even if everything they know is wrong.

The average American is generally well educated in the performance of their job or career, but takes little pride in their work and has zero knowledge or interest in how or why their job or career could be harming others.

The average American makes life difficult for the non-average American. Because they comprise the vast majority of people in this country, the average American creates the reality that we all must live in. The average American is frightened by non-average Americans and they are complicit in their persecution.

The average American is racked with guilt. Deep down inside, they know their lifestyle and choices are wrong, not just for themselves, but for all their fellow Americans, but their great fear of criticism, and the responsibilities and complexities of life are just too much for them to deal with. As a result, they retreat from reality through alcohol, drugs, television, junk food, television, and compulsive shopping.

Some average Americans are so far removed from reality that they actually enjoy a world of blissful ignorance. They frolic through life, oblivious of the great harm that their lifestyle and voting choices cause to others. They believe everything the mainstream media tells them. Many of them live 50, 60, 70 years or more and never experience an ounce of reality. Hollywood and the new age/self-improvement industry are filled with these types. Throw a stick at Malibu and you’ll hit ten of them.

The average American is portrayed in advertising as giddy, confident, and fun-loving. Nothing could be further from the truth. Except for the blissful idiots mentioned above, the average American leads a frightened and desperate life. The hide it well, but deep down inside, they are miserable. They make perfect pawns for those who hate America and they are used accordingly to spread racism, multi-culturism, and leftism.

The average American is all around you: on television, on the street outside, and right outside your door.

Aren’t you glad you’re not the average American?


Why I Pray for the Man Who Calls Himself Obama

Why I Pray for the Man Who Calls Himself Obama

I don’t think that I have ever felt so much anger towards a single person as I do towards the man who calls himself Obama. When I think of the blatant destruction that he and his cabal of communist usurpers have brought to this country via illegitimate authority: the economic destitution, the destruction of sacred marriage, the persecution and attacks on conservatives and Christians, the ruined lives, the wrecked marriages, the murder of millions of babies, the deliberate tearing down of racial progress and the proliferation of racist policies and actions, etc., I am at a loss to come up with another person in my lifetime that more personifies the word evil.

Yet, I pray for the man.

Why? Because if there’s anyone who has done more to deliberately chart a course to his own eternal damnation in the fires of hell, it’s him. Yet I know that God loves him.

For the same reason, I pray for Holder, and Hillary, and Reid, and Jarrett, and Biden, and Pelosi, and Boxner, and Feinstein, and all the rest.

They are sowing the seeds of their own damnation. Yet God loves them.

I’ll admit, it’s hard to pray for these people. It takes effort. Yet the more I do it, the easier it becomes.

Perhaps one of them will be saved. Perhaps one of them will see the light and the errors of their ways. On the one hand, I’m not optimistic. On the other hand, I know that all things are possible with God.
