The [Orthodox] Metropolitan, after indeed verifying there were what looked like tears on the face of the Archangel, asked for the icon to be moved from the place it was hanging. They then examined the back side of the icon as well as the wall on which it rested to determine if there was moisture which passed on to the icon.
Having established that this was impossible, the Metropolitan of Rhodes testified that this was in fact a miracle, and he asked that the icon be brought to the Sacred Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos in Ialyssos for public veneration, as well as to see if a change in environment would halt the phenomenon. ‘We will move it to the big church to see how the phenomenon evolves,’ Metropolitan Kyrillos told the faithful who had gathered in the small chapel.”
Since marriage and family have their basis in the created order, confirmed by the explicit Revelation of God, the Church necessarily opposes the adoption of human laws that would abandon or overturn this order, such as is the case with laws that would recognize same-sex or polygamous “marriage.” Human laws and judicial decisions that fail to respect this fundamental and perennial teaching are contrary to God’s law, and are rightly considered unjust.
And yet Pope Francis is praising a children’s book celebrating homosexual parenting and same-sex families.
Rosie Scammel reports for The Guardian, Aug. 28, 2015, that the Italian children’s book is titled Piccolo Uovo (Little Egg), with a cover adorned by cute hippos, kangaroos and penguins. While following the adventures of an egg may seem harmless enough, its discovery of different family types – including same sex – has prompted a backlash by conservatives who accuse Italian author Francesca Pardi of promoting a pro-homosexuality gender theory.
Pardi is a lesbian in a same-sex relationship with her business partner, Maria Silvia Fiengo. The two women traveled to Spain to be legally married and adopted four children in the Netherlands.
In the book, the egg encounters a pair of gay penguins, lesbian rabbits successfully bringing up a family, as well as other family models, including a single parent hippo, a mixed race dog couple, and kangaroos that have adopted polar bear cubs.
The book was met with disapproval by Venice’s new mayor, Luigi Brugnaro, who in June banned Piccolo Uovo and about 50 other titles from schools. The decision led more than 250 Italian authors to demand their own books be removed from the city’s shelves, a move one writer described as a “protest against an appalling gesture of censorship and ignorance”.
Now Pardi has found an unlikely supporter in Pope Francis, who through his staff has written to the author praising her work. Peter B. Wells, a senior official at the Vatican secretariat of state wrote in a July 9 letter to Lo Stampatello, the publisher of Piccolo Uovo, commending the book for spreading “Christian values”:
“His holiness [Pope Francis] is grateful for the thoughtful gesture and for the feelings which it evoked, hoping for an always more fruitful activity in the service of young generations and the spread of genuine human and Christian values.”
Msgr. Peter Brian Wellswas born in Oklahoma, was ordained a Presbyterian minister in 1991, and is now the number 3 man in the Vatican’s Secretariat of State.
Wells’ letter was a response to a parcel of children’s books sent by Pardi to the pontiff in June, all published by Lo Stampatello. In addition to Piccolo Uovo, 7 or 8 books also deal with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues (LGBT). Pardi accompanied the books with a letter bemoaning the attacks she has come under in recent months:
“Many parishes across the country are in this period sullying our name and telling falsehoods about our work which deeply offends us. We have respect for Catholics … A lot of Catholics give back the same respect, why can’t we have the whole hierarchy of the church behind us?”
Pardi said she had not expected a reply and was surprised to receive the letter at her Milan home.
The Vatican said the closing blessing of the private letter was addressed to Pardi and not in support of teachings which went against church doctrine on ‘gender theory’.
The Vatican deems homosexual relationships “intrinsically disordered” and “contrary to natural law”, preaching that gay people must live a life of chastity in order to be good Catholics. While such a doctrine has effectively excluded people in same-sex relationships from the church, Pope Francis has adopted a more welcoming approach during his papacy. “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” he said in 2013. The same year, a gay man in France told his local newspaper he had received a reassuring phone call from the pope – a claim the Vatican denied.
Catholics worldwide have started campaigning against the pope’s openness, with more than half a million signing a petition calling on Francis to reaffirm church teachings on gay people and divorcees. Signatories of the Filial appeal aim to have an impact on the Vatican’s synod on the family in October, when church teachings will be discussed by the world’s leading churchmen. The petition has notably been signed by traditionalist Cardinal Raymond Burke, who was demoted by the pope last year.
As in the United States, attitudes on homosexual marriage in Italy are changing, with recent polls showing the majority of voters are in favor of “gay” marriage and adoption. Italy’s prime minister, Matteo Renzi, has pledged to legislate for same-sex unions this year. He has come under growing pressure to fulfil the promise following a decision by the European court of human rights, which ruled that Italy failed to protect same-sex couples.
There really is a concerted effort to “normalize” pedophilia — to make adults’ sexual predation of children “normal” and acceptable.
Here’s the latest. LifeSiteNews reports, June 8, 2018, that the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia, is hosting an exhibit titled “Curious Affection”.
Among the exhibits is an “art” installation of a naked smiling male humanoid with blade-like hands and feet, embracing a young girl on top of a rumpled bed.
Standing on the bed’s headboard is a large peacock — a symbol of paradise — conferring its approval.
The display’s creator is Patricia Piccinini, 53, who said in a 2015 video interview that children are featured in her work “because it is easier for us to empathize with them” in that “we feel their vulnerability.”
Many of Piccinini’s works are of little children with naked creatures, including:
An installation of a clothed little boy cradling a naked elderly female who appears to be half human, half walrus.
In a Piccinini soft sculpture installation, a boy puts his finger in a creature’s genital-looking mouth.
Piccinini’s film, “The Gathering,” has a little girl lying asleep on the floor, who is approached by an increasing number of furry animals, one of whom rears up and pulls open her human female genitalia.
Part of Piccinini’s exhibit includes a “film program” which showcases films selected by the artist, among which is Guillermo del Toro’s bestialist movie, The Shape of Water, about a woman who has sex with an amphibian humanoid. The movie won this year’s Academy Award for Best Picture. (Del Toro also wrote and directed the loathsome demonic 2006 movie, Pan’s Labyrinth.)
Piccinini clearly intends her artwork as propaganda. She said the “Curious Affection” exhibit shows many kinds of “love”:
“My work is actually about ideas. One of the main ideasin the work — actually it’s in all my work — is the changing definition for us of what we consider natural.”
Bernard Gaynor, a conservative Catholic Australian, criticized Piccinini’s artwork for promoting “deviant practices.” Gaynor points out that the “love is love” slogan used by LGBTs to legitimate same-sex marriage is now being used to justify “every deviant practice that lurks in the shadows.” Contact information for Gallery of Modern Art:

In 2015, the scientific unit of the police force in Rome, Italy, used reverse aging software to generate the face of what the man in the Shroud of Turin would look like as a 12-year-old boy. (See “The angelic face of Jesus as a 12-year-old boy”)
He is breathtakingly beautiful.
Now, a professor of mechanical and thermal measurements at the University of Padua, Dr. Giulio Fanti, has created a 3D carbon copy of Jesus from meticulous measurements of the Shroud image.
It is of an “extraordinarily beautiful” man, muscular, with “regal” “majestic” features, and nearly 6 feet tall — 7 inches taller than the average man in the Mediterranean region at the time.
Maria Teresa Martinengo reports for La Stampa (Google Translate), March 20, 2018 that Giulio Fanti leads a team of scientists who have studied the Shroud of Turin for years with the most sophisticated technologies available to science.
Based on the scientists’ measurements of the image on the Shroud, the master sculptor Sergio Rodella created a statue in plaster.
Professor Fanti explains:
“Christian tradition believes that the image that is seen on the Shroud is that of the crucified Jesus. And now science is of this opinion too. For years, using the most sophisticated 3D technologies, we have studied the image left by the body on the sheet. And the statue is the final result. This statue is a life-size, three-dimensional representation of the Man of the Shroud, based on the millimetric measurements obtained from the shroud in which the body of Christ was wrapped after the crucifixion. On the Shroud I counted 370 scourge wounds, without taking into consideration the lateral ones, which are not imprinted into the Shroud because it enveloped only the front and back of the body. We can therefore hypothesize Jesus suffered a total of at least 600 scourges. Moreover, the three-dimensional reconstruction has allowed us to reconstruct that at the time of death, the man of the Shroud has slumped to the right because His right shoulder was dislocated in such a severe way as to damage the nerves. According to our studies, Jesus was a man of extraordinary beauty (“bellezza straordinaria”). Long-limbed, but very robust; almost six feet tall, while the average height of the time was around 5′ 5″; with a regal and majestic expression. We therefore believe that we finally have an accurate picture of what Jesus was like on this earth. From now on, it will no longer be possible to portray His image without taking this work into account .”
If the n-word is so hurtful and oppressive then why do rap musicians continue to use it in their lyrics?
From Fox News: A Minnesota school district removed classic novels “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” from its required reading lists due to the novels’ use of a racial slur. Michael Cary, the director of curriculum and instruction for Duluth School District, announced the two books were removed due to the n-word being used throughout both novels. “We felt that we could still teach the same standards and expectations through other novels that didn’t require students to feel humiliated or marginalized by the use of racial slurs,” Cary told the Duluth News Tribune.
The two books would be available in school libraries if students were interested in reading them on their own, FOX 21 Online reported. Cary said the books were removed in order to be “considerate of all of its students.”
Stephan Witherspoon, the president of NAACP’s local chapter, said he welcomed the decision. He called the novels “hurtful” that “use hurtful language that has oppressed the people for over 200 years.”
“It’s wrong. There are a lot more authors out there with better literature that can do the same thing that does not degrade our people. I’m glad that they’re making the decision and it’s long overdue, like 20 years overdue,” Witherspoon said. “Let’s move forward and work together to make school work for all of our kids, not just some, all of them.” Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is listed at No. 21 on the American Library Association’s most “banned or challenged books list in the last decade.” The novel, published in 1960, followed the adventures of a girl and her brother and the racial inequality that existed in their small Alabama town.
Last year, administrators at the Biloxi School District in Mississippi removed the book from the curriculum.
“The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” published in 1884 by Mark Twain, follows the adventures of a poor white boy and a slave. The novel also made the list of “most frequently challenged books” in 2015, The Washington Post reported. Both novels use the n-word throughout.
Cary said the school’s administrators and teachers were working on introducing new books to the curriculum. “Thedecision to protect the dignity of our students seemed like a reasonable and easy one to make that didn’t require teacher input. But in terms of making sure that we select excellent novels that serve the same purpose, that definitely needs teacher feedback and their help in making that decision,” Cary said.
JonBenét Ramsey was a six-year-old child beauty pageant queen who was killed in her family’s home in Boulder, Colorado, on the night of December 25–26, 1996.
More than 21 years after, her murder remains unsolved.
The supermarket tabloid National Enquirer, which was nominated for a Pulitzer for breaking the story on former Democrat VP candidate and senator John Edwards‘ adultery and out-of-wedlock child, gained exclusive access to never-before-seen drawings by JonBenét when she was in first grade at the Boulder Valley School in 1996. The series of drawings was for a school project called, “My Time Line”.
The drawings were never investigated by the police. But the Enquirer convened a team of mental health professionals to analyze them. The experts’ conclusion was that the drawings suggest JonBenét Ramsey had been sexually abused for some time prior to her death. In an article on October 3, 2017, the Enquirer published the specialists’ findings.
To begin, TV-radio show host, author and “relationship expert” Gilda Carle, Ph.D., explains that “Everything a child does in a drawing sends out a message” and the message that JonBenét was sending in her drawings was “Save me!”.
Morgan State University Associate Professor of Psychology and former school psychologist Dr. Jeffrey Menzise explains that JonBenét’s “drawings projected her unconscious mind onto a page, emotions and things she would not consciously say and might not have been able to articulate.”
(1) In a picture JonBenét drew of her family (mother, father, brother and herself), she gave two family members — one of whom is a female with long hair — malevolent eyes, but left her own face blank. Dr. Carle explains that when someone is faceless in a drawing, it often means, “That’s me, and I wish I could disappear!”.
(2) In another drawing, JonBenét depicted herself wearing a T-shirt, no pants, and a partially-erased circular ring around her legs which, according to forensic psychiatrist Carole Lieberman, M.D., “could represent her panties” or “a barrier of protection to stop anything from penetrating her”. (3) Note that the T-shirt has an oval shape with a hole, which JonBenet drew again and again. The experts believe the oval-shape-with-a-hole signifies a vaginal opening.
(4) In another drawing, a stick figure has multiple legs and no mouth. Experts believe the mouthless figure could be someone trying to silence JonBenet, and that the figure’s multiple legs indicate that individual’s aggression, frustration or other anxiety.
Dr. Menzise concluded that “All these things together would make me ask further about any type of sexual abuse, exposure to sexuality or inappropriate behaviors that she could have been exposed to at her young age.”
Certainly, the analysis conducted by the Enquirer‘s team of mental health professionals reinforces charges by investigators that JonBenét Ramsey had suffered “prior vaginal intrusions” months before her parents allegedly found her lifeless body in the basement of their Colorado home. ~Eowyn
Evil no longer hides in the shadows. It has become emboldened and “in your face”.
There’s a Canadian ice cream brand, Sweet Jesus, that you must shun.
It’s an ice cream from Hell.
With sleek stylish ads, “Sweet Jesus” Ice Cream has enjoyed widespread success in their many shops in Canada and the U.S. But it is blasphemous and utterly satanic, shown by the upside-down cross and the lightning bolt in its logo:
The lightning bolt, at a minimum, is a pagan symbol, signifying Zeus or Jupiter. John Namnik points out that:
The symbol of the lightning bolt is also prevalent in satanism. It most likely originates from the Bible passage where Jesus said: “I saw Satan falling like lightning from heaven”.
Note the skull (a symbol of death) in the “Sweet Jesus” ad below:
The ice cream’s ads feature devilish children, including a vampirish girl with an adult woman’s coiffed hair and eye makeup:
Other ads openly mock Jesus Christ:
The ads are the creation of Murilo Maciel, a graphic designer in Toronto.Maciel is a Jewish (Ashkenazi) surname.
Murilo Maciel makes his allegiance clear in another of his designs:
Founded in Toronto, “Sweet Jesus” Ice Cream has 19 stores in Canada, and 2 stores in the U.S. — in Baltimore Airport and Mall of America, MN. It is also finalizing deals in Florida and Hawaii. Overseas, it will be opening soon in Dubai, India and Bangladesh under the trade name Sweet Salvation. The parent company is Monarch & Misfits, of Toronto, Canada. Its bare-bones website gives out little information other than:
A contact person for franchise inquiries named Jeff Young.
Mario Toneguzzi reports for Retail Insider, October 5, 2017, that “Hand-crafted ice cream brand Sweet Jesus . . . has huge plans for expansion across the country and around the world.” Jeff Young, chief development officer of parent company Monarchs & Misfits, said:
“Our development strategy is to target super-regional enclosed shopping centres and very selective high street storefront locations. Over the next 12 to 18 months, we’ll probably open another 20-25 units. I think it’s successful for a number of reasons. The branding is absolutely on point. Everything from the name, the design package, the colour. The product itself is sensational in terms of product quality and flavour. And most importantly it really resonates with the Millennialswho are not only social media savvy but real foodies. We have now garnered more than 109,000 loyal Instagram followers. It’s probably the most Instagramed food in all of Canada…. As one of Canada’s fastest growing franchise brands, we have many new locations under development.“
For such a booming restaurant chain, it is curious that there is no entry in Wikipedia for either Sweet Jesus Ice Cream or its parent company, Monarch & Misfits. Nor could I find any information on their owners.

Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
Founded in 2003 as a sister publication to Vogue fashion magazine, Teen Vogue targets teenage girls. Since 2015, following a steep decline in sales, the magazine cut back on its print distribution in favor of online content, which has grown significantly. The magazine has expanded its focus from fashion and celebrities to include politics and current affairs.
In July, Teen Vogue promoted anal sex, which the CDC says is the riskiest type of sex for getting/transmitting HIV. Anal sex can also lead to a host of other medical and sanitary problems, such as chronic fecal leakage. (See DCG’s post here).
The latest Teen Vogue indoctrination is ecosex, i.e., sex with the “environment”.
Below is an article by Mary Katharine Tramontana for Teen Vogue, June 30, 2017. See if you can make any sense of what Tramontana wrote, such as the term “BDSM pollination”:
There’s a photo of electropunk musician Peachessprawled face-down on a lawn, tongue out, with a caption reading: “Grassilingus.” The gender-fluid rock star who taught us to unapologetically embrace sex and our body hair is getting ecosexual.
Note: Below is a pic of Peaches performing grassilingus. What did grass do to deserve this assault?
“Ecosexuality is making the earth an urgent sexual matter. Instead of ‘Mother Earth’, where the earth comforts you, earth is your lover — on your level — putting the responsibility on you to uphold your side of the relationship…, [it’s] revolutionary,” she says.
Whether it’s masturbating with water pressure, using eco-friendly lubricant, or literally having sex with a tree — a person of any sexual proclivity who finds eroticism in nature, or believes that making environmentalism sexy will slow the planet’s destruction, can be ecosexual. The term ecosex is like the word “queer”; its meaning varies — a movement, an identity, a sexual practice, an environmental activist strategy — depending on who you ask.
“We’re in a period I call the ecosexual baby boom,” says Loren Kronemyer, half of the Australia-based art duo Pony Express, who are currently touring their Ecosexual Bathhouse, an immersive installation that includes BDSM pollination.
Kronemyer says that young people are discovering the topic through the conceptual art projects of self-described Bay Area “sexecologists” Annie Sprinkle and [her “wife”] Elizabeth Stephens. Sprinkle, formerly a porn star and sex worker, is now a sex educator and artist who has exhibited work at the Guggenheim. Stephens is a professor of art at the University of California, Santa Cruz, who grew up in the Appalachian coal country of West Virginia.
Note:Annie Sprinkle, real name Ellen Steinberg, is a lesbian, former stripper and porn actress, who now calls her an “ecosexual” sex educator and feminist. Sprinkle/Steinberg is best known for her Public Cervix Announcement “performance art” in which she invited the audience to “celebrate the female body” by viewing her cervix with a speculum and flashlight.

In 2011, the two wrote an ecosex manifesto, and have since made a career of promoting ecoeroticism to the public through activism, symposia, and performance art, including ecosexual walking tours and wedding ceremonies — “We call them sequins of events,” Sprinkle says – for the dirt, sea, and other elements.
“All this wood here is very sensual,” Sprinkle gestures to the rough tables made of recycled pallets, which surround us as we chat in an outdoor cafe at documenta 14, an enormous art exhibition in Kassel, Germany.
“Ecosexuality is a way of enjoying the sensuality of pretty much anything,” says Stephens. “It’s really about embodiment.” In the gallery across the street, a roomful of Sprinkle and Stephens visual artwork and vintage erotica is on display. In September, they’ll premiere their second feature documentary film here, Water Makes Us Wet. Before we part, Sprinkle tells me, “Shakespeare was an ecosexual.”
At the San Francisco pride parade in 2015, the pair performed a ribbon cutting to advocate adding an “E” to the LGBTQ acronym. Not everyone is keen on this idea. “I don’t see ecosexuality as an identity [or] another letter to be added to the already ridiculous LGBTQ list” says Spanish writer, philosopher, and transgender activist Paul B. Preciado. Preciado curated documenta’s public programs and is a leading thinker in gender theory and sexuality, who was mentored by the hugely influential French philosopher Jacques Derrida. “We don’t need identities, but processes of critical de-identification.” At a time when more and more millennials are opting out of fixed sexual identity labels to appreciate the fluidity of erotic desire, aligning ecosex with sexual orientation models may be perceived as constraining.
“The strength of ecosexualiy is the re-erotization of the totality of the body [and] of everything that surrounds us,” says Preciado. Often, the only body parts considered erotic are those linked to reproduction. This segmenting of “sex organs” is a staple of the “sex-binary regime,” according to Preciado. It’s connected to the way that our heteropatriarchal society has an extremely narrow, notion of what sex is; namely, vagainal penetration, a sex act which has been scientifically shown to not bring most women to orgasm.
Ecosexuals are certainly not the first to celebrate eros within nature, and this is where things may get dicey. “Ecosexuality is not going to appeal to most indigenous people. … I teach it in my classes and my students are viscerally like, ‘This is weird, self-indulgent white people,’” says anthropologist Kim TallBear, a professor of Native Studies at University of Alberta, in a phone interview from Edmonton, Canada. TallBear, a speaker at Sprinkle and Stephens’ recent University of California, Santa Cruz Ecosex Symposium, is writing a book which explores the effects of colonization on queer sexuality. For many of her students, she says, ecosex raises questions about consent. Can a tree do that?
“When people talk about the Anthropocene they typically say, ‘We as a species are now coming to realize that we have to stop putting humans at the top of the hierarchy. Other beings have agency,’ and I’m like, ‘No, it’s not we who are just now having this revelation; it’s a bunch of white guys’”. TallBear says there’s always a risk of subconsciously appropriating indigenous culture.
“Don’t forget that what you’re saying about humanity probably doesn’t apply to indigenous people,” she said. “And, yes, we’re still here.”
The ecosex sphere may still be evolving, but one thing is clear, with the Trump administration’s threat on environmental protections, women’s bodily autonomy, and queer and trans rights, it’s necessary to find new ways to get people motivated to come together to protect the planet and sexual freedom. Perhaps it would be better to create an erotic landscape which doesn’t add more categories of difference, but expanded possibilities.

In a piece for Vogue on August 29, 2017, Yaeger trashed First Lady Melania Trump for her choice of footwear while boarding Air Force One to visit Hurricane Harvey flood-ravaged Houston. With a condescending sneer, Yaeger wrote:
In the words of the late, great Lou Reed, you ‘couldn’t hit it sideways.’ […]
This morning, Mrs. Trump boarded Air Force One wearing a pair of towering pointy-toed snakeskin heels better suited to a shopping afternoon on Madison Avenue or a girls’ luncheon at La Grenouille. […]
But what kind of message does a fly-in visit from a First Lady in sky-high stilettos send to those suffering the enormous hardship, the devastation of this natural disaster?
And why, oh why, can’t this administration get anything, even a pair of shoes, right?”
When Melania deplaned in Houston wearing a pair of tennis shoes, Yaeger and Melania’s other fashion critics all had egg on their faces.

Liberalism truly is a mental disorder. ~Eowyn
The devil likes nothing more than to strip us, whom God made in His own image, of our humanity. And there’s nothing more dehumanizing of oneself and the other than to commit cannibalism — the ingestion of humans by humans.
And yet, cannibalism has become a meme — an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture — in contemporary America’s sick culture.
More than 4 months ago in my post, “What’s behind pop culture’s enthrallment with cannibalism?,” I listed some of the signs:
Zombie movies and TV shows.
The cannibals painting in Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chair John Podesta’s office.
Add to the above list pop singer and Hillary Clinton acolyteKaty Perry (real name: Katheryn Hudson), 32 — she who openly testified that she had sold her soul to the Devil. (Note in the video below the interviewer’s upside-down cross earrings.)
The music video of Perry’s latest single, “Bon Appétit,” released in April 2017, is a macabre step-by-step cooking recipe featuring the singer as the main course. The video ends with Perry about to dine from a plate full of human body parts.
Blogger Truthearth draws our attention to Katy Perry’s live performance of “Bon Appétit” on Saturday Night Live, when she assumed the “Arch of Hysteria” — the pose that cannibal serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer had put one of his victims.
Dahmer’s sick pose was reproduced by the late French-American “artist” Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) as “The Arch of Hysteria” — a sculpture owned by Tony and Heather Podesta, which they displayed in their Falls Church home.
Before it burned down in a hellish inferno last December, the “Ghost Ship” warehouse in Oakland, California, had held an evening performance “art” event in which the “artist” assumed the Arch of Hysteria pose (see “Oakland warehouse fire: Satan’s Hell House“).
