Sunday Devotional: ‘Whoever is not against us is for us’

Mark 9:38-42

At that time, John said to Jesus,
“Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name,
and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us.”
Jesus replied, “Do not prevent him.
There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name
who can at the same time speak ill of me.
For whoever is not against us is for us.
Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink
because you belong to Christ,
amen, I say to you, will surely not lose his reward.
Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,
it would be better for him if a great millstone
were put around his neck
and he were thrown into the sea….”

The above passage from Mark 9 precisely addresses two of the many things that afflict the Catholic Church today.

The first is the clergy’s pedophilia and child sex abuse, and their superiors’ enabling of those criminal acts. See “Catholic Church in Crisis: Pedophile cardinal; Pennsylvania priests abused 1k children; homoerotic church service”.

Fr. Gary Thomas, the exorcist portrayed in the movie The Rite, calls the pedophile priests scandal “demonic” and predicts worse is yet to come, which brings us to the second thing in the passage from Mark 9 which afflicts the Church today — the clergy’s allergy to any mention of devils and demons.

Although priests are supposed to address the Gospel reading of the day in their homilies, how many priests today will actually make mention of demons, demonic possession, and that Jesus had given them authority to drive out demons? In my experience of many years, homilies that actually do that number but a handful.

The pusillanimous avoidance of all mention of devil, demons, and Hell by too many priests and ministers may account for why Americans increasingly no longer believe in the devil.

A 2013 Harris Poll found that Christian beliefs had declined:

  • Although a majority (74%) of U.S. adults still said they believed in God, that’s down from the 82% who had expressed such a belief in earlier years.
  • 68% believed that Jesus is God or the Son of God, down from 72%.
  • 65% believed in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, down from 70%.
  • Only 58% believed in the devil and Hell, down from 62%, which implies that those who believe that Jesus is God but do not believe in the devil or Hell must think Jesus either lies or is a fantacist. In either case, whether Jesus lies about the existence of demons or that he believes in and promotes a fantasy, then Jesus cannot be God.

“The finest trick of the devil is to persuade you that he does not exist. (La plus belle des ruses du diable est de vous persuader qu’il n’existe pas.)” -Charles Baudelaire’s Le Joueur généreux, 1864. How can we armor ourselves against the Devil if we don’t even believe he exists? No wonder Americans increasingly are debauched and depraved. (See “Satanism as a new political movement in America”)

As for Jesus’ instruction that “Whoever is not against us is for us,” it calls to mind a recent exchange I had with a reader on my post, “One-world-government Walter Cronkite: ‘I’m glad to sit at the right hand of Satan“.

In my post, I quoted from a speech that Cronkite gave on October 19, 1999, at the United Nations, in which he espoused a one-world government, which he maintained had been obstructed by “a handful of willful senators” who “pander to and are supported by the Christian Coalition and the rest of the religious right wing.” Then Cronkite said:

“Their leader, Pat Robertson, has written in a book a few years ago that we should have a world government but only when the Messiah arrives. (Derisive laughs from the audience.) He (Robertson) wrote, ‘Any attempt to achieve world order before that time must be the work of the devil.’ Well, join me. I’m glad to sit here at the right hand of Satan.” (Audience applause)

The reader suggested that Cronkite and Hollywood celebrities who speak “casually about ‘sitting at Satan’s right hand’ and such statements” are either joking or “spiritually ignorant” in that they “don’t really know what they’re saying” and don’t actually believe in Satan or in God.

Jesus’ reminder that “Whoever is not against is for us” tells us that those like Cronkite who mock Christ and Christians are not “for us”, but are against us, no matter their feigned jocularity. We should, therefore, regard them with wariness and caution.

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you!

Monday Horror: No one will hire us because of Trump

One reason why President Trump continues to tweet is because Twitter affords him a direct way to communicate to the American people, without having to depend on the fake-news MSM as a medium.
A couple of days ago, President Trump sent out this tweet, showing the employment gains since he was inaugurated.

But there’ll be no employment for these two.
H/t maziel
Come to think of it, maybe those two mutilated their faces with plastic surgery into grotesque devil masks as a way to avoid working so as to stay on welfare. Can they claim this as a Social Security disability?
But I doubt it.
I think it’s a case of demonic possession.
What do you think?

Meryl Streep’s snake tongue

Human beings don’t flick their tongues out. Snakes do, like this garter snake:

I can honestly say I’ve never flicked my tongue out when I speak, not even to lick my lips, and I’ve done countless public speaking — as a professor lecturing in class, presenting papers at conferences, and as a lector at Mass. Nor have I ever seen anyone flick their tongue out when speaking.

The first time I noticed a public person doing what snakes do was Anita Dunn, Obama’s White House communications director from April through November 2009. While delivering a speech at a high school graduation, Dunn disconcertingly and repeatedly flicked out her tongue in lightning speed, just like a snake. Here’s a screenshot I took:

The next time I noticed a public person doing the snake-tongue thing was then secretary of state John Kerry speaking at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on September 3, 2013, on Obama’s proposed war against Syria. Here’s a screenshot I took:

You can see the videos of Dunn and Kerry by going to “John Kerry flicks his tongue like a snake“.

On January 8, 2017 at the Golden Globe Awards, actress Meryl Streep, 67, who endorsed Hillary Clinton for the presidency at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, used the occasion of her award acceptance speech to trash then President-Elect Donald Trump.

During her speech of nearly 6 minutes, Streep repeatedly flicked out her tongue, which you can see for yourself in the video below, at the 0:18, 2:56, 3:15, 3:50 and 4:49 marks. (I recommend that you slow down the video by clicking the wheel icon in the bottom right of the video. I also muted the sound because I don’t want to subject myself to Streep’s voice.)

Here are screenshots I took from the video:

After staring at her thin-lipped mouth to catch her tongue-flicking, I’ve now developed an intense revulsion to Meryl Streep’s mouth. Yuck.

She is altogether a deeply unattractive woman. Notice how preternaturally thick her neck is. That’s why she wore the deep-V neckline gown — to compensate for her thick neck.

Reportedly, Streep moved many of the Hollyweirdos in the audience to tears. This woman in the audience (a model named Chrissy Teigen) actually stuck her tongue out (4:05 mark):

From their facial expressions, Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn did not find Streep moving, LOL (5:10 mark):

During her trial in 2013 for the murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, convicted killer Jodi Arias repeatedly stuck her tongue out. Alexander died from 27 to 29 stab wounds, slit throat, and a gunshot to his head.

UPDATE (Feb. 15, 2017):

FOTM reader Lana pointed me to a very disturbing video from which I made a GIF of the late “Charismatic” Evangelical pastor Kenneth Hagin flicking his tongue. Hagin is said to be the mentor of pastor Kenneth Copeland. Here’s the GIF:

A better explanation for Las Vegas shooters is demon possession

This post is in response to Traildust’s “MKUltra’s latest children?

On June 8, 2014, the Millers shot and killed two Las Vegas police officers, Igor Soldo and Alyn Beck, at a pizza restaurant, draping one of the victims with a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag, a swastika, and a note that said “The revolution has begun.”

The couple then fled inside a Walmart, where Amanda Miller shot and killed customer Joseph Wilcox as Wilcox, who carried a gun, moved to confront Jarad.

Jerad was killed by a police rifle; Amanda turned her gun on herself and committed suicide.

jerad_amanda_millerJerad and Amanda Miller dressed up as the demonic Joker, posted on Facebook

Writing for HenryMakow.com, Michael Hoffman proposes that, instead of the media characterization of the Millers as “white supremacists” and Tea Party “Constitutionalists,” a more accurate label for Jarad and Amanda Miller should be demon-possessed Satanists.

Hoffman writes: “These days Americans have trouble calling anything by its correct name. Consequently, we cannot proceed to a true comprehension of the evils which have befallen our nation and the remedies that must be implemented for the sake of the innocent.” That’s because “The religion of agnostic secularism admits of no demons.”

Hoffman continues:

“The alleged killers in Las Vegas of two policemen at a restaurant, and a bystander at a shopping center, are being variously described as ‘white supremacists,’ ‘Constitutionalists’ etc.

They may be all or none of those things, but they are most certainly demon-possessed individuals initiated into a devil cult by immersion in the soul-killing Hollywood movies and television and New York entertainment ‘culture’ that permeates the US like the fumo di Satana.

Examining their Facebook photos, we see that they have inculcated the Batman meme, which has been occult-saturated since the first 1989 film in the series, and which reached its apogee with the most notorious and soulless entry, ‘The Dark Night’, starring the late Heath Ledger, who died at age 28.

On July 20, 2012 James Holmes, a PhD. candidate in neurology, entered a theater in Aurora, Colorado that was screening the most recent Batman movie, ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ and slaughtered. 12 people. The two ‘Dark Night’ movies have grossed more than $2 billion.

The establishment media dubbed Holmes ‘the Dark Knight shooter’ and ‘the Joker.’ He appeared as a Joker in his first court appearance. His July 2012 massacre was embedded with occult significance (see Revisionist History newsletter no. 63, “Predictive programming and ritual stagecraft: The Batman movie shooting synchronicities“).

Prior to the attack by Holmes, the name ‘Aurora’ (i.e. the goddess of the dawn), showed up in the movie trailer for the Dr. John Dee (‘007’) ‘Skyfall’ movie. The words ‘Sandy Hook’ appeared in ‘The Dark Night Rises’ Batman film prior to the school shootings at Sandy Hook.

In the case at hand, we have Jerad and Amanda Miller, the putative Las Vegas cop killers leaving behind unmistakable links to the Joker of the Batman genre. No extensive investigation was needed to elicit this clue. It was on Facebook for all the world to see.

The perps themselves revealed it in the Revelation of the Method, part of the pattern of self-revelation which the Cryptocracy permits and encourages in this time when Satan can walk openly and the American people don’t give a hoot.

If the Prince of Darkness were to turn off the lights during the Stanley Cup or the latest round of the NBA Finals however, then we might see some signs of revolt from the sheeple.

Otherwise, ever more frequent, ‘random’ mall and school massacres, and the media-dissolution of the souls of our children is not a major cause for concern, beyond proposing gun control legislation and more pharmaceutical medication for the ‘mentally ill.’

But when most of America might be mentally ill, then what? Beyond cases of depression and nervous exhaustion or shock, is not ‘mental illness’ often a euphemism for someone who is controlled by malevolent spiritual forces?

The New Testament was not lying when it gave accounts of Jesus Christ driving out demons. Are we supposed to believe that there are fewer demon-possessed persons now, than in the time of Christ?

How can this be when there have been millions of abortions in America? How can this be when a man who inserts his sexual organ in the rectum of another man is celebrated as a noble civil rights activist? […]

Slender Man

Whatever the Las Vegas killers’ political affiliation may be — whether contrived by the System or genuine — these suicide shooters, like James Holmes, are first and foremost demon-possessed. These murderers worship Satan, whether under that name, or as ‘Joker’ or ‘Slender Man.’
https://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/06/07/ohio-mother-blames-knife-attack-by-13-year-old-daughter-on-slenderman-obsession/

The people they kill are a propitiation to the god of this world.

As Jerad Miller wrote, using what we believe to be a double entendre on his Facebook page hours before his alleged murder spree, ‘The dawn of a new day. May all of our coming sacrifices be worth it.’

As suicides, he and his wife were among those ‘sacrificed.’

The Satanic force manifesting as Slender Man may have inspired a wave of civic terrorism. Chronology of recent attacks beginning with the Slender man knifing:

  • May 31, 2014 Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, 12-year-old girls in Wisconsin, repeatedly stabbed and seriously wounded another 12-year-old, to propitiate Slender Man, an Internet meme.
  • June 4 Justin Bourque, 24, allegedly shot and killed three Royal Canadian Mounted Police and wounded two others in Canada. The suspect, dressed in fatigues and armed with a rifle, went on a rampage in Moncton, New Brunswick, authorities say.
  • June 6 a 19-year-old man was fatally shot and two other young people were wounded after accused gunman Aaron R. Ybarra, 26, entered Otto Miller Hall on the Seattle Pacific University in Washington state campus and opened fire.
  • June 8 the Millers wreaked their havoc in Las Vegas.
  • June 10: One student, Emilio Hoffman, 14, a freshman, was murdered by a suicide shooter at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, Oregon. ‘This shouldn’t happen in Troutdale,’ Max Maydew, grandfather to two Reynolds students, told The Oregonian. President Obama said, ‘This is becoming the norm.’

Is there an antidote to this state of evil, this ‘norm’? Certainly there is. Pray Psalm 94.”

-End of Hoffman’s article-

GodPsalm 94:I-IV: A Prayer For Deliverance

Lord, avenging God,
avenging God, shine forth!
Rise up, judge of the earth;
give the proud what they deserve.

How long, Lord, shall the wicked,
how long shall the wicked glory?
How long will they mouth haughty speeches,
go on boasting, all these evildoers?
they crush your people, Lord,
torment your very own.
They kill the widow and alien;
the fatherless they murder.
They say, “The Lord does not see;
the God of Jacob takes no notice.”

Understand, you stupid people!
You fools, when will you be wise?
Does the one who shaped the ear not hear?
The one who formed the eye not see?
Does the one who guides nations not rebuke?
The one who teaches humans not have knowledge?
The Lord does know human plans;
they are only puffs of air.

Happy those whom you guide, Lord,
whom you teach by your instruction.
You give them rest from evil days,
while a pit is being dug for the wicked.
You, Lord, will not forsake your people,
nor abandon your very own.
Judgment shall again be just,
and all the upright of heart will follow it.

Actor Hoffman who died from heroin overdose wrote of “demons” in diaries

In my post of Aug. 26, 2012, “Psychiatric nurse says half of patients have a spiritual affliction,” I wrote:

It is partly through our faculty of reason that God protects us, so any activity that impairs our mind and will is a threat to the integrity of our selfhood. Any activity that involves an abandonment of self-control can provide an opening to the demonic. Since nature abhors a vacuum, the invitation is extended for something or someone to enter in to fill the void. In that light, it is interesting that an Alcoholics Anonymous counselor once told FOTM’s Joan that a recovering alcoholic’s mental age is much less than his chronological age; it is the individual’s biological age when he first began drinking. In other words, the person was not really present during the alcohol-soaked years, which raises the troubling question of who — or what — was there instead.

Why is it that when alcoholics or drug addicts say they’re fighting or struggling with “demons,” we don’t take them at their word?

The latest example is actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, winner of an Academy Award for his portrayal of the writer Truman Capote in a 2005 movie, who died of a heroin overdose on Feb. 2, 2014.

Philip Seymour Hoffman

A friend found Hoffman’s body in the actor’s Manhattan apartment, with a syringe still in his arm. Hoffman was only 46 years old. He left an unmarried partner, costume designer Mimi O’Donnell, and three children they had together, ages 5, 7, and 10.

Since a young age, Hoffman had abused drug, alcohol, and in his words, “anything I could get my hands on. I liked it all.” After graduating from college at age 22, he went to rehab for drug and alcohol addiction, but relapsed more than 20 years later with heroin and addiction to prescription medications. In May 2013, he checked himself into a drug rehab for about 10 days. He was also attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in New York.

Richard Esposito reports for NBC News, Feb. 11, 2014, that when police searched Hoffman’s apartment, they found 49 full bags of heroin, 23 empty bags of heroin, four bags of white powder believed to be cocaine, various prescription drugs, and two small diaries — one measuring about 6 by 8 inches and another approximately 7 by 9 inches.

Those diaries reveal a man who was troubled by “demons” and struggled to control them.

According to multiple sources familiar with the diaries’ contents, the hand-scrawled entries make reference to drug deals, to the actor’s struggle with his “demons,” and his attempt to stay clean by attending Narcotics Anonymous meetings.

But the diaries are also hard to read, with scribbled lines, and sentences that run into each other. The handwriting sometimes starts out clearly and then becomes illegible, as if he had written parts of the diaries while high.

Sources say “It’s stream of consciousness and difficult to follow. In one line he refers to ‘Frank who always owes money’ and on the same page he writes about a 15-year-old girl from Texas”; and “It seems he did at least part of it in rehab. It definitely contained some soul-searching. But there is also a fair amount of rambling that doesn’t make sense.”

What happened to the boy in "The Exorcist"

“Then he summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits to drive them out….” Matthew 10:1

In truth I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 18:18

Did you know that the famous 1973 movie “The Exorcist” was based on a real-life case of a successful exorcism? But instead of a young girl, played by Linda Blair in the movie, in real life it was a 13-year-old boy who became demonically possessed.

The Exorcist

I’ve always wondered what happened to that boy. Thanks to an account by Pat McGonigle for KSDK5 in St. Louis, Missouri, Oct. 30, 2012, we now know. Here’s McGonigle’s report:

It’s one of the biggest questions about the most well documented cases of an exorcism in U.S. history.

What ever happened to the 13-year-old boy at the center of the exorcism performed by Jesuits at Saint Louis University?

The story was the basis for the best-selling book and blockbuster horror movie, “The Exorcist.”

With a few rare exceptions, the boy’s identity has remained a closely guarded secret for decades.

“He’s still alive,” said David Waide, SLU archivist.

In almost all of the accounts of the famous case, the boy is referred to as “Robbie.”

Robbie’s ordeal began at his home in Maryland in 1949. Bizarre, unexplained things started happening in Robbie’s home, up to and including marks and welts on his body.

Robbie’s parents came to St. Louis to stay with relatives, partially in hopes that a change of scenery would stop the unexplained activities.

It didn’t help.

One of Robbie’s cousins was a student at St. Louis University at the time. She relayed accounts of Robbie’s ordeal to Jesuits at SLU.

Eventually, Fr. William Bowdern, S.J. led the exorcism with the help of Fr. Raymond Bishop and Fr. Walter Halloran, among others.

The ordeal ended at a now-demolished wing of the Alexian Brothers Hospital in south St. Louis.

It’s believed Robbie would be 77 today.

He’s had several children,” Waide said. “He’s moved back to the Washington D.C. area. He was non-Catholic, Lutheran nominally, but he became a Catholic. He was baptized during this whole episode.

It’s been reported that Robbie named a son Michael. In the exorcism records, Robby tells the priests he was saved by St. Michael the Archangel.

Robbie returned to St. Louis two years after his ordeal ended in 1949.

In a priest’s diary about the exorcism, this is the final footnote entry on page 29:

“Follow up: August 19, 1951. R and his father and mother visited the Brothers. R, now 16 is a fine young man. His father and mother also became Catholic, having received their first Holy Communion on Christmas Day, 1950.”

You can read the entire diary on KSDK.COM.

StMichaelTheArchangel

In 1993, Thomas B. Allen wrote a book on the real life exorcism of “Robbie.” Titled Possessed: The True Story of an Exorcism, the book is based on the diary kept by a Jesuit priest who assisted Father Bowdern in the exorcism. One big difference between the movie and the book is that in the book, “Robbie” identified St. Michael the Archangel as playing a pivotal role, by the power of God, in the eventual expulsion of the demon.

Football Coach Enraged by "Jesus" Chant


A high school football coach was so enraged at the opposing fans’ chants of “We’ve got Jesus!” that he charged out of his team’s huddle following its loss and yelled at the opposing student section and said they “should be embarrassed”.

Tom Bolden


Rick Chandler reports for NBC Sports, Sep 14, 2011, that Tom Bolden, head coach of Cincinnati (Ohio) Colerain, reacted with fury at the “We’ve got Jesus!” chant by fans of inner-city rival St. Xavier Catholic following St. Xavier’s 17-14 win on Friday.
“That’s where I’ve got to draw the line,” Bolden told the Cincinnati Enquirer about the postgame chant. “[The St. X student section] ought to be embarrassed.”
According to the Enquirer, the St. Xavier chant came in response to an earlier chant by the Colerain student section of “We’ve got girls!” Xavier is an all-male, Jesuit school, and their football team had been taunted by the opposing Colerain for being gay.
Now, why would a “Jesus” chant send a football coach into such a fit of rage?
Exorcists say aversion to sacred objects such as the crucifix and holy water is one of the signs of possession. Hmm….
By the way, St. Xavier won when Colerain missed a 45-yard field goal attempt in the final minute of the game.
Maybe the St. Xavier boys did have Jesus!  😀
