The more I read about liberal judicial tyranny and ecclesiastic moral cowardice, the more I see the ironic, cynical similarity creeping from both those evils. The announced retirement of Sandra Day O'Connor and the obvious and continued despicable leadership of clerics like Roger Mahony of Los Angeles only serve to drive this irony further into what remains of this society's moral shell.
Black Robes Stained in Blood
As a frequent swing vote on abortion issues, O'Connor might as well have waved a scalpel instead of a hammer for her hands are stained with the blood of countless innocents. While not the most liberal justice by any means, one can argue that her "moderation" away from critical right to life issues has been far more devastating to the war against this vile brutality that strangles the very soul of this nation. O'Connor was chosen by a President determined to preserve life and turned out to be moral lemon on that very point. Her departure at a time when all eyes were on the possible retirement of Rehnquist highlights just how critical her role was in all of this vile judicial tyranny against life. It is one thing to replace an opponent of abortion with another such opponent, but it is quite another to replace a friend of this barbarism with anyone even hinting displeasure with this cruelty. We can leave O'Connor to serve as her own lawyer before Almighty God, but we can rightly observe that she had a very key hand in preserving the murder of innocents!
It is neither my intent nor my stomach to churn out a list of how judicial tyranny has turned the black robes of justice into blood red robes of murder, sin, immorality, and vulgar disrespect for The Almighty. Anyone with even a passing awareness of this nation's political, social, and judicial history over the past forty years is sufficiently informed of this tragic fade from black into red. Suffice it to say that William A. Gladston, former aide to President Bill Clinton, once observed that "beginning in the 1950s, the Democratic Party convinced itself that, especially on social issues, the principal vehicle of advancement would be the courts." In other words, as shown by the last election, liberals and secularists have realized that the courts provide a detour around a populace whose majority rejects liberal and secularist trash. Despite the fact that most people have no problem with public prayer or the display of The Ten Commandments, it is those in black robes who have determined and enforced rulings against these things.
Given the obvious fact that the more important a judicial appointment, the more likely that said appointment will be laced and embroiled in the venom of politics and partisan rhetoric, it should come as no surprise that the first thing to be compromised in most courtrooms and especially the highest court is morality and absolute, natural law and justice.
While people such as the Honorable Antonin Scalia stand as examples of judicial deference to morality and Divine Justice, the sad fact remains that as one ascends the ladder of judicial power there is often a corresponding descent into the pit of judicial tyranny and secular liberalism. It is sad but often true that the more prominent the jurist, the less accurate the term "honorable" found before the name of that jurist!
Red Robes Stained in Black
If the jurist is supposed to lead civil society toward greater justice through an honest, moral and responsible interpretation and application of Natural and Absolute Truth, then the cleric is supposed to lead spiritual society toward greater salvation through an honest, moral and responsible interpretation and application of that same Truth and Divine Will. However, it is the height of tragedy that, by and large, neither those in black nor those in purple or red - or white for that matter - are fulfilling their missions. In fact, this article posits the claim that those in black are stained in red and those in red are stained in black. Having shown above why the first accusation is true, I now turn my attention to the second claim.
Anyone reading this article either accepts or at least is aware of the myriad of ways in which the leadership of the "American Roman Catholic Church" has been accused of betraying their Divine mission and purpose. It is accurate to say that the shepherds have not only abandoned their sheep; they have dragged these sheep to the wolves for pieces of silver and gold.
If Judas kissed Our Lord in the garden even while he betrayed Him, we now have a conga line of bishops and cardinals stepping up to give Christ a peck on the check even while they stick a knife in His back! Since it is not my intent to write a book at this time, I will begin and end with one Roger Mahony of Los Angeles welcoming the latest so-called "Catholic" pro-abortion politician, Antonio Villaraigosa and attempting to stop pro-life protestors who wanted to enter the cathedral to protest that welcome. The picture above of Mahony relishing the company of mammon between pro-abort 'Catholic' Villaraigosa and Al Gore tells it all. This is the same "shepherd" who welcomes every sodomite, feminist, and pro-death character he can. With shepherds like Mahony, the sheep are better off taking karate!
It is thus clear that most, if not all, red robes are heavily stained in the black of sin and betrayal of their Master. Just as our jurists in black have betrayed their calling to pursue true justice and moral integrity so too our clerics in red have betrayed their calling to pursue Divine Truth, absolute right, and eternal salvation. Both have done so for the coin of promoting their corrupt, despicable, and foul agendas. They are both Judas and Brutus, for they have betrayed their Faith by the kiss of betrayal and a dagger in the heart of Catholicism.
Spitting on Documents
If the Holy Bible and Revealed Truth are obviously sacred for true allegiance to Almighty God, then the Constitution may be viewed as sacred for true allegiance to the principles upon which this nation was founded. Despite the Masonic background of many of these founders, the fact remains that this nation was founded upon a respect and connection to The Almighty and Judeo-Christian values. Just as we now see the desecration of the Bible and Revealed Truth by those who would usurp the authority of these sources, so too we now see the desecration of the Constitution by those who would twist and bend that document to suit their vile and heinous purposes and motives.
Rather than defending the respective documents they are sworn to protect and promote, our fallen jurists and clerics have chosen to spit upon those very same documents and principles by spewing their cowardice and corruption in an intoxicated crusade to inject their personal bias and agenda upon something far greater than their mere role as soldiers of that transcendent truth and order. These twisted motives amount to nothing less than a revolution against Divine Order and Natural Law by the mere foot soldiers supposed to enforce and reflect that Order and Law. Apparently robes, no matter their color, seem to imbue the wearer with a temptation to believe that such garb represents more a divine right and privilege to dictate morality, justice, and truth rather than a uniform denoting allegiance to a Divine Order and Natural Law dictated by The Almighty.
And what of the New Order robed marauders of the cloth who have spit upon the infallible decrees of Trent by pretending that Trent never happened and that the Church began, in actuality, at Vatican II? As absurd as that sounds there is no other explanation for their blatant rejection of Catholic truth and sensibility. Just as the Constitution has been skewered and regurgitated into an evolving scale to fit the times, so also the Sacred Deposit of the Faith has been plowed under by the sowers of bad seed posing as robed robbers of souls.
If these fools - both judicial and ecclesial - have made it sport to spit on that which grants them their purpose, then the Source of that purpose, The Creator, will surely spit these imbeciles out, robes and all, in the ultimate court of eternal and Divine Justice!
Our present lost society has seen the red robes of clerical authority "fade to black" in sin while the black robes of judicial authority "fade to red" in the blood of innocents and the toxin of sin. Even as the robe worn by Our Lord was gambled and tossed about in sport at Calvary, so too the robes worn by our jurists and clerics have become the toys of societal, social, and political whim. Just as Our Lord's robe was so treated absent His Divine Presence having been taken from Him, so too the robes of justice and ecclesiastic authority are so treated because Our Lord is not present in those who wear this garb as well.
Has not Christ said in Matthew 7: 21-23? "Not everyone that saith to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven: but he that doth the will of My Father, Who is in Heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven. Many will say to Me in that day: Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name, and cast out devils in Thy name, and done many wonderful things in Thy name? And then will I profess unto them: I never knew you: depart from Me, you that work iniquity." Who do you think He was referring to? He provides the answer in Luke 12: 48, "And whomsoever much is given, of him much shall be required: and to whom they have committed much, of him they will demand the more."
The seamless garment that they could not rip apart at Calvary, is now being pulled from every side in trying to rent asunder His indefatigable Church. We know that despite the foul treatment of Our Lord's robe, it was never divided for Our Lord was never divided neither from His purpose nor His flock whom He truly loved and sacrificed His life for in fulfillment of a higher purpose consistent with the Will of God and eternal salvation. In contrast, the robes of lost jurists and clerics are all about division in the form of moral and social chaos and havoc borne of sin and rejection of God. If hell's floor is paved with the skulls of fallen clerics, then its roof is lined with the skulls of fallen jurists, for these two groups have sold their robes to the highest secular bidder. The walls of Gehenna echo that fact. Let us pray for good jurists and clerics and for the souls of those not fitting of the salutation "your honorable", "your reverend", "your excellency", "your eminence",or even "your holiness"!
