Presenting the
IgNOMinious gNOMe
Awards


  The igNOMinious gNOMe Awards are our way of exposing the charlatans who have veered so far from the path Holy Mother Church has always traveled in conveying to the faithful flocks why shepherds are so vital in being guided to eternal salvation. That salvation today, contrary to what was taught for 2000 years, no longer requires the Catholic Faith or the fulness of the sacraments to be attained. At least that is the thinking of those who we acknowledge igNOMiniously today. the capital NOM stands, of course for the synthetic, man-made concoction issued by Paul VI that dared to usurp the divinely deigned Immemorial Mass of All Ages, the Holy Sacrifice of Tradition said in the Mother Tongue of the Church - Latin. Today that benchmark of stability and sense has given way to novelty and innovation, with ecumenism raising its ugly head while the Mass of Tradition is consigned to the medieval bin.

   We've had the Ugly with the UGLIES awards presented this past Sunday. Next Thursday on the Feast of St. Robert Bellarmine and the 87th Anniversary of the First Apparition at Fatima we will present the Good with the well-deserved Tower of Trent Trophies. That leaves us today with the "Bad" and that is the IgNOMinious gNOMe Awards, which acknowledges the bad Catholic ecclesiastics you've voted for and, in shaming them, we can only offer prayerful hope they'll wake up from their ecumania and repent. You'll note to the left of each award is a bishop depicted like the famous gnome who is going doddy-bonkers leaning to the left. You might call him the "Roamin' Roman GNOME" for he's gone whoopsie-daisy with the Sacred Deposit of the Faith.

   We have chosen this day May 5th, not only the Octave Day of the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, but also the Feast of the great and holy Pope who codified Trent Pope Saint Pius V. Since he is the one whom the bishops today have been disobeying so blatantly is it not appropriate they be exposed on his feast day? Therefore we present your choices for the igNOMinious gNOMe Awards:

Cardinal Walter Kasper jumped out at the very start of the voting period and never looked back as voters cast 61% of their votes for this German apostate whose ecumaniacal agenda is further blackening this pontificate. The fact he ever made cardinal is a dark day in John Paul II's sad pontificate. Yet this man from the Rhine was appointed head of one of the Curia hen houses where he could do the most damage - President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, following another unbeliever in Cardinal Edward Isdris Cassidy who for ten years laid the foundation for undermining the True Faith through compromising with pagans and non-Catholics. Cardinal Roger Mahony was runner up, garnering only 21% of the vote while the rest of the small percentage divided among the other three gNOMinees Cardinal Francis Arinze, Cardinal Edward Egan and Cardinal Cormac-Murphy O'Connor barely made a dent. And so, to your Eminence Cardinal Walter Kasper we present the devastating dishonor of an igNOMinious gNOMe for your further animus delendi - desire to destroy - the Sacred Deposit of the Faith. Shame on you. You belong in the gNOMe Hall of Shame. Return to categories




Cardinal Roger Mahony lapped all others garnering more votes than any others in any category of any voting, appropriately and not surprisingly pulling down 66% of the votes with Archbishop Sean O'Malley and Bishop Howard Hubbard receiving 11% each, Cardinal Edward Egan only 6% and Cardinal Francis George pulling up the rear at 4%. While the votes were being cast, more aspersions and accusations of Mahony's cover-ups came to the surface and many believe the rot within the Los Angeles and Southern California sees is even worse than Boston. No one is more responsible than the haughty destroyer of the True Faith who has been caught in one lie after another. Enough is enough with the cover-up, your Excellency, it is time to come clean and then hie thee to a monastery to live out the rest of your life in penance away from the maddening crowd where you can deal with a madder God for your actions and account for the souls you are responsible for. A heavy price to pay, much much more than the massive monument to mammon better known as the Taj Mahony or Rog Mahal, both of pagan religious origins which you are quite comfortable with. The fact is few are comfortable with you as a cardinal, let alone a priest. You are truly deserving of this igNOMinious gNOMe and membership in its Hall of Shame. Return to categories




Bishop Howard Hubbard by a whisker 37% swished by Archbishop Harry Flynn's 36% to win out as the loser of the "Why can't we all be gay and happy" category. Bishop Joseph Adamec was in the running for a while, but New York and Minnesota voters kept coming while Pennsylvania voters tailed off to where the Altoona-Johnstown prelate only received 20% of the total. Bishop Robert Brom and Bishop Thomas Kelly laid low as did their supporters for their inclusion in the Hall of Shame. And so, your Excellency Bishop Hubbard, you may add this dishonor of dysfunction in the Diocese of Albany to your list of affidavits, requests for depositions in the murder case of an honest priest, and the secret hit list for the Mauve Mafia or Lavendar Mafia, take your pick, that seems to rule Albany. How sad what you have done to the credibility of a shepherd and your own culpability in allowing the rot you've tacitly permitted. For that welcome to the IgNOMinious Hall of Shame. Return to categories




Disgraced Archbishop Rembert Weakland made fast work of this category with 55% of the total vote. We thought Cardinal Bernard Law and Phoenix's former prelate disgraced-in-more-ways-than-one Thomas O'Brien would give the former Milwaukee archbishop a better run for the Hall of Shame, but Law and O'Brien were able to only garner 24% and 19% respectively, which left 1% each for two bishops Bishop John Quinn and Bishop Thomas Gumbleton. These latter two would say, in truth, that anyone on these list of gNOMinees isn't progressive enough for their likes. And so Archbishop Rembert Weakland, for your lying and deceit, for your total desecration of St. John the Evangelist sanctuary with the abomination you constructed in that once magnificent basilica, for your progressive attitude that has destroyed the faith of so many, and for your brazen attitude that all is forgiven and you can go about your destructive business as if nothing happened, for that kind of igNOMinious gall, you are hereby welcomed into the igNOMinious Hall of Shame with a gNOMe, of which, we might add, you bear a striking resemblance. Return to categories




Monsignor Luciano Guerra, the Shrine Rector of Fatima easily squeezed out the dishonor of entering the igNOMinious Hall of Shame after his lies, denials and more lies over what is really going on at Fatima. The Buddhist are taking over and if you look at the picture of Guerra above isn't it amazing how much he looks like a Buddhist? He outdistanced his closest pursuer in Portugal's prelate Cardinal Jose de Cruz Policarpo who narrowly edged by just two percentage points the heretical Father Jacques Depuis for second place. Archbishop Michael Fitzgerald, President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue was third with 10% of the votes and finishing last was Fatima's Bishop Serafim de Souza. And so, Monsignor Luciano Guerra, you can hem and haw all you want, you can spin it anyway you wish, it still looks like a banjo or a griddle iron and one thing for sure: it is no house of God. For your doublespeak and denials in the face of facts and truths proving you a liar, we admit you to the igNOMinious Hall of Shame with an igNOMinious gNOMe. We just ask you don't display it in the new shrine with all the buddhist and hindu statues. Return to categories




This category was no contest from the get-go. It was Archbishop Anibale Bugnini's to lose from the beginning. Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, who has left his sorry legacy in "Bernardin's Boys" and the gay-friendly 'seamless garment' nonsense, just edged out Karl Rahner, the heretical Jesuit who shamefully was shamelessly lavished with praise just recently by the modern Vatican. Go figure. Bernardin garnered 17% to Rahner's 15%. Hans von Balthazar was a distant fourth with 4% and the Boston prelate who allowed the rot to fester Cardinal Humberto Medeiros barely scratched the voters' memory with 1%. That left 63% of the votes for good ol' Anibale, also referred to as Hannibal or Annibale, or Buon by his Masonic Lodge brothers. This confirmed 33rd Degree Mason left his mark in the several decades he was able to infiltrate the Church and slither his way into such a powerful position where he was the architect of the "abomination of desolation" (Mt 24: 15) - the New Order Mass - which he cajoled Paul VI to approve. For the latter Paul VI still has much to answer for and to. Bugnini? Well, few believe this man ever found his way to Heaven. All we can do is pray he was able to repent at the end and got at least the back row of Purgatory. For his sins and his part and the ruin he has been responsible for there are no words of good that we can say of this abominable soul who sold out to the devil in order to perpetrate the heresies and destruction of the faith throughout the universal Church. A 'Martin Luther' in hiding, at least Luther was man enough to state his differences. Bugnini? He hid behind his apostolic garments and betrayed Christ all the more by enabling the enemies of Holy Mother Church to accomplish all that Luther, John Calvin, Thomas Cranmer and every other enemy of Catholicism had hoped for: to do away with the Mass of All Ages. For your hideous, shameful deed the disgraced Bugnini will forever be shamed in the igNOMinious Hall of Shame.

Of course, other than Bugnini, someone had to appoint and enable the rest of the recipients today who have been inaugurated into the igNOMinious Hall of Shame. The buck stops at the top and we all know that in the late autumn years of John Paul II's veiled pontificate the fruits are false. There are no lasting fruits. That is because he cast his lot with those who built on the sands of Vatican II and ignored the solid Rock of the Church founded by Christ, the Church of Tradition. The stone-like facade that they have placed over the shifting sands has given way and more and more we can see the modern church imploding with a loss of vocations, a bailing from the churches by countless confused souls, and a terrible malaise and morale within the ranks of the hierarchy. Who is to blame? We could blame John XXIII for unleashing the apostates, or Paul VI for taking and twisting the pastoral decrees of Vatican II into the pretzel of phenomena that it has become thanks to the very man who did nothing to turn the Barque of Peter back towards the sure path of salvation always charted by previous Sovereign Pontiffs from Peter through Pope Pius XII. Therefore, known as the pilgrim pope for his globetrotting escapades over his nearly 26-year pontificate, where he has kissed the Koran, apologized and belittled Holy Mother Church to the perfidious Jews, acknowledged pagan rites from Buddhism, Hinduism, New Ageism and witchcraft and become the most popular pope of all time with the world and its values, we hereby must present a special Roamin' gNOMe to John Paul II. We pray, your Holiness, that you will realize the tragedy of your ways and, as we have said many times - wake up from this 40-year nightmare and return the Church to all she was intended to be and decreed by the holy Pontiff whose feast we celebrate this day - Pope Saint Pius V who said quite clearly, anyone veering from the true path set in stone at Trent, would incur the wrath of Almighty God and the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul. Please, Holy Father, heed holy Pius' words before it is too late for you. We would dearly love to take back the igNOMinious gNOMe with the rationalization that you do not deserve the dishonor. Unfortunately, until you do restore the outward beauty of the Mystical Bride of Christ by placing back on her the beautiful and necessary garment of grace in the Traditional Latin Mass, you do deserve the dishonor.
