Nothing seems to be a hotter issue right now then two subjects which are on the lips and minds of everyone: the fabricated controversy over Mel Gibson's film 'The Passion of The Christ' and the anarchy of the sodomites in San Francisco. We are alerted to the Bay area that Bishop Patrick McGrath of the San Jose Diocese has deemed it necessary to write a special article in the secular San Jose Mercury News to warn his flocks. Why one would logically deduct he would write against the sin of sodomy and what is going on just north of him where he was schooled in his own episcopal ways and inform his flock as to where the Church clearly stands. But nooooo! He took the space to spew anathema and heresy in disavowing any association with Mel or his movie. We know where McGrath and the vast majority of bishops stand and we take them on and challenge them to prove they are not in anathema. We detail in today's editorial The 'Apostles' are scattering into the Alleys of Anathema!
Gabriel Garnica continues his marathon of articles defending Mel Gibson and 'The Passion of The Christ' by taking on the crafty scholar Paula Fredericksen who has a biased agenda to demean Mel and what he is endeavoring to convey on film. A lauder of the profane, Fredericksen twists the truth to fit her revisionist ways while passing herself off as an expert. It is a mask for her feminist agenda that applauds the theoretical 'The DaVinci Code' but tries to find fault when it isn't there against 'The Passion'. The problem is she is not just attacking Mel, she is attacking Sacred Scripture and the True Faith. Evil comes in many forms and Gabriel cannot sit still for that as he asserts in his column Paula Fredericksen: The Anti-Mel!
Gabriel Garnica sounded the clarion on the silence that is growing more deafening by the day. He examined the paradoxes of society which, as he stated, has outSodomed the Sodom of old. The facts verify that. He tried to stir the consciences of Catholics everywhere to get off their duffs, to be the Lions of Right and Truth in roaring forth with a passion for Christ and His infrangible teachings. He asked what ever happened to the fervor, valor and zeal of the saints of yesteryear? They have compromised with the icons of idiocy that pervade civilization today, molding them into mute muppets of mammon. Unfortunately, the echo of ennui and disinterest reverberates through souls - an eerie siren of the lukewarm of which the Lord has promised in Apocalpyse 3: 16 He would vomit from His mouth for from the mouths of the lukewarm come the Sounds of Cowardice
Father Lawrence Smith completed his three part treatise on "Vital Distinctions in Moral Theology" Friday. It is something very needed in these times for
this week the sodomites in San Francisco have gone to town with "regularizing" their depravity by the supposedly 'Catholic' Mayor Gavin Newsom directing the City Clerk to issue marriage licenses to all comers. Anarchy rules. Father asked if they realize that in celebrating the lusts of the flesh they are imprisoning themselves, calling down God's wrath upon them. It is true charity to speak out against such perverse sin for any true Christian truly loves his neighbor and doesn't want him damned. If we truly love God then we too will speak out uncompromisingly against the aberration of sodomy which has been the bane of destroying civilizations in the past. Great empires have gone the way of the dinosaur because they defied the natural and supernatural law. So also today in the United States. We must do all in our power to uphold the sacredness of Holy Matrimony and all it represents as Father explained in part three Clarity, Charity and True Justice in calling out those who defy God's Laws.
How many have had it with the whole 'anti-Semitism' smokescreen that has made a mountain of out a molehill? We sure have and it's time to expose the snakes, or in this case the 'fox' who is igniting this bonfire of the Vanities or should we see the Vaticanities, for Abraham Foxman, the Caiphas of modern times is desperate. He is in such a panic that despite his denial on national TV Monday night that Mel and his film 'The Passion of The Christ' are not anti-Semitic, he has traveled to Rome to see the Roman 'governor' - the Pilate of modern times in John Paul II. What is Foxman stirring up? That Mel Gibson is the enemy because he is challenging the faux doctrine of Vatican II. Ah, yes, misery loves company. We got to the heart of it in our editorial Caiphas Appeals To Pilate
A Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
In the seventh chapter of our series on the history of Holy Mother Church and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we picked up after the death of Saint Peter with the three successors who finished out the first century. To the chagrin of the Romans, this gnat they thought they could squash instead grew like a centipede everywhere. The more they tried to quell the peaceful uprising of following a man who died on a cross, the more Christians there were. True to the words of Tertullian, "the blood of the martyrs is the seed of Christianity." Meanwhile, many Jews came to the stark realization that the Old Covenant had indeed ended with the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 A.D. Many converted and died for the Faith of the New Covenant in order to return to the bosom of Abraham and his Creator, the Triune God as we discussed in Nothing can destroy the Spirit
"Quid dicit Scriptura?"
Jacob Michael began a series on the Mother of God's specific mission as Mediatrix of all graces. He documented through the early Doctors of the Church, Saints, and Popes that Church teaching has always verified Mary's role scripturally as a channel ordained by God to convey grace to mankind for she is Co-Redemptrix, Advocate and Mediatrix. In citing the renowned holy scholars such as Sts. Iraneus, Ambrose, Jerome and Bernard, as well as Popes Leo XIII through Pius XI there is irrefutable proof of the legitimate claim of calling Mary Mediatrix of all graces. Because of her healing touch, Jacob has chosen to call this set: Mother's Medicine: Mary as Mediatrix. He shared these findings in Part One The Mediatrix in the Church's Teaching
Father Lawrence Smith presented the second part of his three part treatise on "Vital Distinctions in Moral Theology" - something very needed in these times for
this week the sodomites in San Francisco have gone to town with "regularizing" their depravity by the Mayor directing the City Clerk to issue marriage licenses to all comers. Massachusetts spent the last week trying to find a way to enshrine sodomy in their constitution and yet not offend the Godly while doing it; needless to say, they failed, which means that in the next couple of months, that state will throw out any pretense of righteousness and just cave in to the sodomites. Sodomy looks to loom large in the upcoming general election of the President. Father holds nothing back in exposing this ugliest of sin for what it is and that human rights have nothing to do with accommodating and promoting sin and perversion. The color of one's skin or culture are one thing, blazenly going against the natural and supernatural order are another which only calls down the vengeance of the Almighty.
The selling of sodomy must stop! Father Smith focused on why the sodomy agenda cannot continue in urging every child of God to fight and abhor it vigorously and courageously. Father delineated in part two The Depravity and Devastation of Homosexuality
In two articles that touch on the same theme Tuesday, Gabriel Garnica led off with the prologue on how the events two millenia ago are repeating themselves today as the release of 'The Passion of The Christ' is a week away. Gabriel pointed out that "those who cry division divide, and those who cry inacurracy defraud. Those who cry sin are the greatest sinners, and those who criticize artistically have hailed trash in the past!" Gabriel exposes the hypocrisy of those who cclaim righteousness but beneath that veneer are bursting at the seams to cry out 'Crucify Him!' anew. 'Give us Barrabas', they demand, represented in the criminal 'The Da Vinci Code'. 'We will not have truth interrupt our agenda!' Gabriel laid out the scenario of how this is playing out in his column History Repeats Itself!
While Gabriel above sounded the clarion on the stage that is The Passion, editor Michael Cain went further in identifying the players, exposing the Scribes and Pharisees for what they are: hypocrites. Documenting this hypocrisy he lambasted certain bishops and a priest who dared anger the Triune God by besmirching His house with pagan worship. It is uncanny how the events and players surrounding 'The Passion of The Christ' in 2004 so clearly replicate the very characters of that very real drama in 33 A.D. As Cain explained in naming names, the players, both good and bad, retain the same characteristics. Just as they did not get the message the first time, so too they do not seem to get it this time around. Cain lamented that if Mel Gibson's film doesn't move their hardened hearts, most likely nothing will. That is why prayer is so vital right now and why The Daily Catholic has called for a Novena of Rosaries for the conversion of hearts as he explained in his editorial
The Passion and Conversion of Hearts!
With the revolting events from Massachusetts to San Francisco, with the Church being such a namby-pamby as far as speaking out definitively and absolutely against sodomy in every sense, we focus on true Church teaching and what every priest was supposed to have learned during his seminary days studying moral theology. Unfortunately most have forgotten or compromised for fear of being called a 'homophobe' or being 'intolerant.' That has only helped the entire sodomite movement and gravely harmed countless souls, not to mention debasing civilization as we know it. The selling of sodomy must stop! Beginning today Father Lawrence Smith focuses on why the sodomy agenda cannot continue and everyone of us needs to fight it vigorously and courageously. You don't want to leave it to God alone for that could be devastating. Father begins a multi-part treatise on "Vital Distinctions in Moral Theology" with part one The antithesis of "Be fruitful and multiply"
Christ or chaos
You won't believe the travesty that took place on the campus of Notre Dame last week and how so many just looked the other way. The very ones who should have been on their guard to ban any kind of sodomite agenda from crossing the South Bend threshold are defending sin and turning away any graces or aids to curb concupiscence. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey relates the sad results and rallies the faithful to pray all the more as he shares with readers of The Remnant his personal experience with those who should be defending the Faith and are instead betraying the Faith, greatly tarnishing the Golden Dome, not to mention countless souls. How dare they still call Notre Dame Catholic as Tom relates in his piece filed for The Remnant Censorship for Defenders of Our Lady at Notre Dame; Free Press for Sodomites at Notre Dame?
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Sexagesima Sunday, he lamented how the church of modern times has basically sold out the Faith to please man, especially in the heresies that other churches are to be recognized as 'equal' to the Catholic Church and that the Jews' wait for the Messiah was not in vain. This now is being magnified as the Vatican is faced with a decision, one they are manifestly afraid of: Stand up for what the Gospel says or stand by their compromise with the Jews and other agents of Mammon which contradicts the Scriptures. The U.S. Bishops have seemingly opted for the latter by distributing a warning about Mel Gibson's masterpiece 'The Passion of The Christ' while letting every other heresy and abuse go unnoticed. It is no coincidence that Mel chose Mary of Agreda's writings to amplify the Gospel for it was this venerable woman, so ignored by the modern saint-maker, who has foretold that Our Lady will conquer and end all heresy. It is the last hurrah, thank God! Thus, while all looks hopeless, there is great hope on the horizon, just as God has promised and the famous Hilaire Belloc encouraged. Such are The The Glories of the Bold
