The black remaking of Hollywood movies

Unless you’ve been under living under a rock, you know that the Left have declared war on white people, especially white men. See:

Hollywood is part of that war.

Popular movies are being remade with blacks in iconic white roles, including a black man as Sir Lancelot — a path already trodden by the BBC, when it saw fit to cast a black Nigerian actress as English queen Margaret in the 3-part Hollow Crown TV series.

So who’s behind Hollywood’s war on white people? Here’s a hint:

Hillary Clinton’s body language indicates she’s feeling the heat

On October 15, 2017, feigning that she had broken her toe running down the stairs in heels and falling backward, Hillary Clinton called off her book tour in the UK.

She did that because she was tipped off that news would break the next day of Uranium OneRussia’s $multi-million donation bribe in 2010, while Hillary was secretary of state, to her Clinton Foundation in return for the Obama administration’s approval of a deal that gave Russia control over 20% of America’s uranium mining.

A week later, on October 24, the Washington Post (!) reported that in 2016, Hillary’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) hired the Washington firm Fusion GPS to continue its “research” on Donald Trump — research that had been initiated and paid for by a Republican rumored to be RINO John McCain. Fusion GPS in turn hired former British MI6 spook Christopher Steele to invent out of whole cloth the “Russian dossier” on Trump, including the incredible account of Trump — notoriously health conscious (he doesn’t smoke or drink alcohol) and germ-phobic — hiring Russian hookers to pee (“golden showers”) on a hotel bed.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC continued to fund Fusion GPS’s “research” until just days before Election Day.

Now, the House Intelligence Committee has opened investigations into both the Uranium One deal, as well as Fusion GPS. White House Chief of Staff — the very based General John Kelly — is also calling on the Justice Department to investigate the Democrats.

All of which would explain why Hillary Clinton, the always-composed pathological liar, is squirming.

Aside from those heavy-duty stress-induced bags under her eyes, the above video points to two significant body-language gestures of Hillary which both have to do with her neck:

  1. Pulling into herself by shortening her neck, chin down.
  2. Touching the back of her neck with her hand.

An article on body language has this to say —

(1) On Hillary Clinton pulling into herself:

The neck [is] a classic position where a predator attacks, either going for the jugular artery at the side or crushing or ripping out the windpipe. When people feel threatened they will thus naturally act to protect the neck, pulling the chin down to protect the throat and possibly also raising the shoulders to protect the sides of the neck.

(2) On Hillary touching the back of her neck:

When a person is uncomfortable with what they are saying or where they are saying it, then their neck muscles may tense, affecting their voice through constriction of the windpipe or tensing of the vocal chords. This can cause discomfort in the neck and the hand thus acts to sooth this irritation.

When a person is uncomfortable they may sweat. If they are wearing a tight collar this will start to rub and irritate them. As a result they may pull at their collar . . . .

Another reason for touching the neck is when the person fears attack, as it reflects the desire to cover their windpipe.

There are also major muscles at the side and back of the neck and rubbing or squeezing these indicates tension, which may well be anxiety.

Suddenly grabbing the back of the neck can be a displacement activity for anger, as if the person raises their hand to strike then has to do something to restrain it. A neck-grab can also be a sign of shock or surprise as if the person is pulling their head back and grabbing it to suppress the reaction.

Liberalism in a mental disorder: Teen Vogue promotes ecosex with trees & grass

#26 of the 1963 Communist Goals for America:

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”.

About the pic, see “Berkeley tree-huggers go naked

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 Peaches sprawled 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.

Audience member looks into Annie Sprinkle/Ellen Steinberg’s vagina

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.

Lastly, here’s more evidence that Teen Vogue is insane: see “Donald Trump Doesn’t Want Our Planet to Survive“.

You won’t believe what the Vogue fashion editor who trashed Melania Trump looks like!

Lynn Yaeger is a contributing fashion editor of Vogue and Vogue.com, and a former Village Voice fashion reporter for 30 years.

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:

“Oh, Melania.

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.

This is Lynn Yaeger, the great fashion editor and arbiter of good taste:

And this is what Vogue Fashion Editor Lynn Yaeger wears:

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

Wikipedia says Yaeger cuts her own hair.

Liberalism truly is a mental disorder.

California Catholic school removed statue of Jesus & Mary so as not to alienate students

Founded in 1850, San Domenico Catholic School in San Anselmo in the San Francisco Bay Area serves 671 students grades K-12, and is California’s oldest independent school and first Catholic school. The school is not an archdiocesan school, but an independent school sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael.

In an effort to make the Catholic school more “inclusive” and less “alienating” to prospective students, the school recently removed 162 Catholic statues and icons, including a statue of the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus. The statues were stored in the school’s basement or donated to “appreciative recipients”.

Chair of San Domenico School’s board of trustees Amy Skewes-Cox justified the relocation and removal of some of the school’s 180 religious icons as “completely in compliance” with San Domenico’s new strategic plan:

“If you walk on the campus and the first thing you confront is three or four statues of St. Dominic or St. Francis, it could be alienating for that other religion, and we didn’t want to further that feeling.”

Nor is the Catholic school offering Catechism classes. Head of School Cecily Stock said the year before last the school began offering catechism after school and then last year phased it out entirely because:

“We had very few families interested. I think last year it was fewer than five. It just made sense to have the students prepare for communion with their local parishes where they would be with a larger group of students. Over the last few years we’ve had fewer Catholic students as part of the community and a larger number of students of various faith traditions. Right now about 80 percent of our families do not identify as Catholic.”

Instead of teaching students about Catholic theology and doctrines, San Domenico provides students with instruction in world religions and philosophy because truth is relative and subjective:

  • School principal Stocks says: “It’s really about empowering each student and giving them the information so they can discover their own purpose, their own truth”.
  • Mirza Khan, the school’s director of philosophy, ethics and world religions, says: “The Dominican teaching philosophy is not to teach there is only one truth.”

Outraged parent Shannon Fitzpatrick, who has an 8-year-old son enrolled at the school, sees the removal of the statues as a steady erosion of the San Domenico’s Catholic image. In a letter to school officials, Fitzpatrick wrote:

“Articulating an inclusive foundation appears to mean letting go of San Domenico’s 167-year tradition as a Dominican Catholic school and being both afraid and ashamed to celebrate one’s heritage and beliefs. In our time here, the word ‘Catholic’ has been removed from the mission statement, sacraments were removed from the curriculum, the lower school curriculum was changed to world religions, the logo and colors were changed to be ‘less Catholic,’ and the uniform was changed to be less Catholic.”

So what would be the point for Catholic parents to send their kids to San Domenico?

Update (Nov. 15, 2017):

On Nov. 13, the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael announced San Domenico School in San Anselmo “will no longer be a Catholic school, and will not be recognized by the Archdiocese of San Francisco as such.” Nevertheless, “The Dominican Sisters and San Domenico School are deeply committed to remaining in relationship with one another and to the mission of the school.” (California Catholic Daily)

I think it is high time for the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael to announce they’re also no longer Catholic.

Memphis theatre pulls Gone With The Wind after complaints that it is racially insensitive

Last time a movie was playing that I didn’t like, I chose not to go see it. Today’s SJWs are such demanding, sensitive snowflakes.

And does that mean that Hattie McDaniel’s family needs to return her Oscar for participating in this insensitive movie?

From Daily Mail: ‘Gone With The Wind’ has been pulled from a Memphis theater after patrons complained the 1939 Civil War classic is racially insensitive.

The Orpheum Theatre Group made the decision after patrons took issue with the screening of the movie starring Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O’Hara on August 11.

‘As an organization whose stated mission is to ‘entertain, educate and enlighten the communities it serves’, the Orpheum cannot show a film that is insensitive to a large segment of its local population,’ the theater’s operators said in a statement according to News Ch. 3.

The classic motion picture revolves around the life and hardships faced by Scarlet O’Hara during the war. It was based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book with the same title, by Margaret Mitchell.

The movie depicts the relationships between slaves and owners and has been previously criticized before for its portrayal of black slaves.

Hattie McDaniel, who portrayed a slave called Mammie, became the first African-American woman to win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role.

Racial sensitivities hit a fever pitch after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, NC ended in bloodshed when a woman who was protesting the rally was killed by a car that mowed into a crowd of people.

The white supremacist groups held the ‘Unite The Right’ rally to protest the potential removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

The Orpheum Theatre in Memphis is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a 2,308-seat venue.

People had strong reactions to The Orpheum’s decision to pull ‘Gone With The Wind.’

One Facebook user wrote: ‘We have literally lost our minds in this country! Let’s just erase all the history so we can rewrite it! Not me. I want to see every movie, book, statue, tribute, monument, memorial, and site of every concentration camp to ensure these horrors never happen again. If you don’t teach and learn from our past you will be destined to repeat it!’

Another asked if Wizard of Oz would be next as ‘it might offend “little” people.’

What has recently been deemed offensive enough to erase has expanded well beyond the Confederate statue of Gen. Lee in Charlottesville.

The ever growing list of things people find offensive enough to banish now includes various statues of Christopher Columbus, to a statue of New York colonist Peter Stuyvesant.

The general removal of Stuyvesant’s name, which covers two neighborhoods in New York and a high school, have been debated.

 ‘Gone with the Wind’ is the latest piece of history under attack.

Pope Francis’ Vatican: a cesspool of pedophiles and homosexuals

“The greatest charity one can do to another is to lead him to the truth.” ~St. Thomas Aquinas

In a sobering message at the funeral of Cardinal Joachim Meisner on July 15, 2017, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI described the Catholic Church as a “boat” that “has taken on so much water as to be on the verge of capsizing.”

Note: Cardinal Meisner was one of four Catholic clergymen who wrote a letter (dubia) to Pope Francis asking him to clarify his Amoris Laetitia apostolic exhortation that can be understood as giving permission to civilly-divorced-and-remarried Catholics (and therefore living in adultery, according to the Church) as well as unmarried cohabiting Catholics (i.e., living in fornication) to receive Holy Communion. Reportedly, Francis published the exhortation despite having received corrections from theologians. Months after Meisner et al. sent Francis their letter, the pope still has not responded.

If the Church is a “boat” that “has taken on so much water as to be on the verge of capsizing,” then Pope Francis’ Vatican is already submerged — in a cesspool of child porn, child rape, homosexual sex-and-drug orgy, and an in-your-face homoerotic church mural.

(1) Child Porn & Child Rape

Michael Stone reports for Patheos, Oct. 3, 2014, that police found more than 100,000 child porn videos and photos on the computer of former Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski in his office at the Holy See diplomatic compound in the Dominican Republic. Wesolowski was the Vatican’s papal nuncio or ambassador in Santo Domingo.

Under house arrest at the Vatican, Wesolowski is also accused of raping numerous children in the Dominican Republic and Poland, and is one of the highest-ranking church officials to be accused of sexually abusing children during the Catholic Church’s widespread and costly sexual abuse scandal. Wesolowski is also suspected of having sexually abused children while serving in other posts during his career — in South Africa, Costa Rica, Japan, Switzerland, India and Denmark.

After being publicly accused of procuring child prostitutes in 2013, Vatican officials secretly removed Wesolowski from his post as papal nuncio in Santo Domingo so as to avoid criminal prosecution. In September 2014, Weslowski was placed under house arrest at the Vatican in response to popular outrage after reports began to circulate that the accused child rapist was free to wander the streets of Rome. Authorities in both the Dominican Republic and Poland — Wesolowski’s country of origin where he has also been accused of sexually abusing children — want him extradicted to face criminal charges.

According to Vatican detectives, some of the horrors found on the former Archbishop’s computer included around 160 videos showing teenage boys forced to perform sexual acts on themselves and on adults, and more than 86,000 pornographic photos methodically archived in several category-based folders. At least another 45,000 pictures were deleted, while even more child pornography was found on a laptop Wesolowski used during his trips abroad.

Wesolowski was charged with sexually abusing minors and child porn possession; if convicted, he would face 12 years in jail. Scheduled for July 11, 2015, his trial was postponed because of an “unexpected illness”. On August 27, 2015, Wesołowski was found dead in his residence from a heart attack. (Wikipedia)

More recently, another high-ranking Vatican official was charged with sexual assault.

The New York Post reports that on June 22, 2017, Australian police charged Cardinal George Pell — Pope Francis’ chief financial adviser and Australia’s most senior Catholic — with multiple counts of “historical sexual assault offenses,” meaning offenses that generally occurred some time ago. Police gave no other details.

Pell, the highest-ranking Vatican official to ever be charged in the church’s long-running sexual abuse scandal, had also been accused of mishandling cases of clergy abuse when he was archbishop of Melbourne and, later, Sydney. He has denied all abuse allegations.

Meanwhile, the AP reports that, ignoring advice from the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, “Pope Francis has quietly reduced sanctions against a handful of pedophile priests, applying his vision of a merciful church even to its worst offenders in ways that survivors of abuse and the pope’s own advisers question.”

At least one case has come back to bite Francis:

“An Italian priest who received the pope’s clemency was later convicted by an Italian criminal court for his sex crimes against children as young as 12. The Rev. Mauro Inzoli is now facing a second church trial after new evidence emerged against him”.

(2) Homosexual Cocaine Orgy

In late June, 2017, Vatican police raided a cocaine-fueled gay-sex party at the apartment of Monsignor Luigi Capozzi, 49 — the secretary of one of Pope Francis’ key advisers and president of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio.

Ironically, the apartment is in a building right next to St. Peter’s Basilica, which belongs to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith — the arm charged with tackling clerical sex abuse. As such, the building enjoys the extraterritorial rights of the Vatican, unchecked by the Italian State.

After neighbors complained repeatedly about constant comings and goings of visitors to the building during all hours of the night, Vatican police raided the apartment and found multiple men engaged in rampant drug use and homosexual activity. Police arrested Capozzi, whom Italian media called an “ardent supporter of Pope Francis,” after taking him to a clinic to detox from the cocaine he’d ingested. Capozzi is now on a spiritual retreat in an undisclosed convent in Italy. Despite his arrest, he is still listed as an active staff member on the website of the Pontifical Council for the Interpretation of Legal Texts.

Capozzi, who on his LinkedIn page calls himself an “expert in canon law and dogmatic theology,” managed to evade suspicion from Italian police by using a BMW luxury car with license plates of the Holy See, which made him practically immune to stops and searches. This privilege, usually reserved for high-ranking prelates, allowed the monsignor to transport cocaine for his frequent homosexual orgies without being stopped by the Italian police.

In response to the news of the police raid, Pope Francis decided to “accelerate” the retirement of Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio. At age 79, Coccopalmerio is way beyond the age of retirement of 75, but was kept on by Francis. Incredibly, Coccopalmerio had recommended Capozzi for a promotion to bishop, despite Capozzi’s previous alleged drug overdoses.

Coccopalmerio, as President of the Pontifical Council for the Interpretation of Legal Texts, is the Vatican’s top canonical official and one of Pope Francis’ closest collaborators and ardent supporters. Earlier this year, the Vatican’s publishing house released with much fanfare a book by Coccopalmeiro that defended Francis’s Amoris Laetitia, even though it contradicted perennial Catholic teaching.

In a 2014 interview with Rossoporpora, Coccopalmerio said that while homosexual relationships are deemed “illicit” by the Church, Catholic leaders, such as himself, must “emphasize” the “positive realities” that he said are present in homosexual relationships:

“But if I see that the two persons truly love each other, do acts of charity to those in need, for example … then I can also say that, although the relationship remains illicit, positive elements also emerge in the two persons. Instead of closing our eyes to such positive realities, I emphasize them.”

Michael Hichborn, president of the U.S.-based Lepanto Institute, said he highly suspects Coccopalmerio knew of his secretary’s homosexual cocaine orgies:

“Given the monitoring and whispering that goes on in the Vatican, it is unlikely to the point of absurdity that Cardinal Coccopalmerio was unaware of Msgr. Capozzi’s disgusting activities. In fact, when we consider the 300-page document on the homosexual lobby that was handed to Pope Benedict XVI just before he resigned, the probability is that many who work in the Vatican were fully aware of what Capozzi was doing, and that such activities are taking place among other clergy as well.”

Hichborn said that the homosexual orgy happening right next to St. Peter’s is indicative that the Vatican is “ground zero for a mass apostasy that is happening right now within the Catholic Church.” Hichborn said that the Church’s enemies are now trying to destroy her from within:

“We know for a fact that Communists and homosexuals were specifically recruited as far back as the 1920’s to infiltrate seminaries. It was a concerted effort to destroy the Church from within. What we are seeing is the culmination of nearly 100 years worth of this effort playing itself out.”

(3) Homoerotic Church Mural

In March 2017, reports surfaced that Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, in 2007 when he was a diocesan bishop, had commissioned a homosexual artist to paint a gigantic blasphemous homoerotic mural in his cathedral church of the Diocese of Terni-Narni-Amelia in Umbria, central Italy.

The mural that covers the opposite side of the facade of the church portrays Jesus carrying nets to heaven filled with writhing naked and semi-nude homosexuals, transsexuals, prostitutes, and drug dealers. The image of the archbishop himself is depicted among those in the nets.

Archbishop Paglia defended the mural deemed by Catholic critics to be  “blasphemous” and “disgusting,” as well as “demonic,” saying it was part of a commitment to evangelizing. Regarding his inclusion in the mass of nude bodies shown in the mural, he said, “I too am included in the mural as one who needs redemption no less than anyone else.”

Not coincidentally, Paglia also defended Pope Francis’ Amoris Laetitia on allowing adulterers and others living in mortal sin receive the Eucharist, which reinforces the suspicion of many that the real intent of Amoris Laetitia ultimately is to legitimate homosexuality.

Commenting on the cesspool in the Vatican, Riposte Catholique observes:

“One thinks one is dreaming: in the most deplorable of ways, the Rome of today seems to have fallen lower than the Rome of the Borgias.”

In a talk given in Washington D.C. last October, the orthodox Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Kazakhstan points out that where there is heresy, there is also sexual immorality because “heresy” always goes hand-in-hand with an “unchaste life”.

No wonder some Catholics call Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis is his job title) an anti-Pope.

No wonder U.S. Catholic congregations are aging and dying off. At least 60% of most congregations today are over 65 years of age. (Catholic Journal)
