If Judas was living today, he probably would reside in Massachusetts, for that state is graced us with such loyal, true Catholics as JFK, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, and now two much more lightweight but equally damaging and fraudulent Catholics as Representative Marie P. St. Fleur and State Senator Marian Walsh. These two 'brilliant lights of Catholic leadership' have found the way to make Kennedy and Kerry appear legitimate, honest, and noble by comparison!
Fleur and Walsh claim to be very faithful Catholics while espousing views completely contrary to true Catholic doctrine. Sadly, this fact alone merely means that they would be welcome guests as dinners held by Kennedy, Kerry, Pelosi, Durbin, Jack Reed, Susan Collins, Jennifer Granholm, Patti Murray, Chris Dodd, George Pataki, Mario Cuomo, and Barbara Mikulski among a horde of other model Catholic lawmakers. However, in supporting sodomite marriage, these two women have taken things to another level indeed. While all of the above label themselves as 'Catholics' with a straight face, most of them admit, at least defiantly, that their professional and religious views are often in conflict. Many of them, like Mikulski and Collins, actually wax sarcastic when pushing off notions that they are doing wrong, often throwing out the Catholic Church's own troubles as morsels of hypocrisy. In short, the vast majority of these Catholic frauds openly admit that Catholic teaching differs from their own beliefs, and then go on to rationalize or justify this difference in some pathetic way. In so doing this, however, these heroes of perdition at least demonstrate some degree of awareness regarding their faith. Fleur and Walsh, however, make the rest look like novices in the political school of arrogance and defiance. The only thing more tragic or humorous than their positions on sodomite marriage in the light of their purported faith is their justification for those positions.
Please be seated, for you are about to be privileged with profound arguments from clueless fools who should stick to speaking about tax cuts and education funding and stay away from anything resembling speaking for the faith they pretend to represent but actually spit upon every time they open their mindless mouths.
These arguments can conveniently be presented in three installments.
Argument # 1.....Liberal Lies and Spins
Howard Dean, the new Chairman of the Democratic Party, recently said that "we need to remind Catholic Americans that the social mission of the Democratic Party is also exactly the social mission of the Roman Catholic Church". In other words, liberals are a modern-day version of St. Francis, so any Catholic who does not embrace the liberal agenda is an idiot. What fools like Dean need to remember is that while the liberal social agenda does mirror the Catholic social agenda in many ways, killing babies, playing God with stem cells, sodomite marriage, and fighting school vouchers kind of trumps feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, and healing the sick!
Dean recently told liberal, radical abortion extremists that they did not have to give up their agenda of death to gain values voters, only change their vocabulary. In other words, as I pointed out in a series of articles on liberal strategy after the election, (Four part series on The Dragon) these people intend to keep on killing, sodomizing, and playing God while they merely repackage their sin to fool any fool who buys into their rhetoric! It is in this initial liberal trash thrown at Catholics that the next two arguments, espoused by our two esteemed Catholic frauds, can be presented.
Marie P. St. Fleur…Law School Jargon 101
State Representative Marie P. St. Fleur is the first Haitian-American to hold elected office in Massachusetts, and as such she should be commended for her achievement. However, she no doubt reached these heights through her legal and legislative acumen and not her ability as a theologian or defender of the faith! In fact, this young woman is about as qualified to speak on what the Catholic faith is or is not about as I am to speak on mountain climbing, and I have vertigo.
Fleur has cited her CCD classes as one of her learning grounds and, as a former CCD teacher myself, let me tell you that this is like justifying speaking on nuclear physics by citing third grade science classes. Despite this unassailable qualification to pronounce theology, Fleur comes forward to justify her defense of sodomite marriage by telling us that the Catholic faith completely and undoubtedly supports her position! No, she is not content to merely admit that she respectfully differs from that faith. She actually uses her faith to justify homosexual marriage! She constructs this pathetic justification by slapping two pieces of law school jargon together to make a perdition sandwich. If you want the recipe, here it is.
First, slap a loaf of the "living document" dribble sold in law school. Like Fleur, I attended law school, and let me tell you that most if not all of these schools are bakeries for liberal hype and revisionist fluff. One of the most popular, and damaging, pieces of rubbish sold in law school is the so-called "living document" trash which has been used to update, modernize, and evolve the Constitution into a weapon against God. It is from this sham that the mythical separation of church and state fiasco was built. Briefly stated, this argument tells us that any ancient document was written in a different social, political, economic, cultural, and historical context but emits certain basic themes and inclinations. It then follows that it is our job to interpret, translate, modernize, and enlighten those ancient words by applying them to the present time. The arrogant assumption underlying this approach, of course, is that we are improving that document by helping it "grow into the present age". Using this vile philosophy, lawyers and politicians have carved God out of the Constitution and are attempting to push Him back into the catacombs and beyond. Fleur has taken this thinking from her law school days and applied it to the Bible, stating that "the Bible is a living word, just as the Constitution." She alleges that everything in Scripture and her CCD education tells her that Catholics should not "ostracize people because they are different" and are supposed to "embrace people who are different and particularly those who are marginalized." In other words, any true Catholic will embrace, accept, and support anyone who is different, isolated, and marginalized by society.
Let me assure you, Fleur did not come up with this on her own. It sounds like law school jargon dressed up as theological hiccups and condoned by the New Order bishops and theologians who, thanks to aggiornamento have applied this "living document" trash to Divine Revelation which is a heresy in and of itself! The obvious danger of this heretical thinking is that it reduces the Bible to some out-of-date phone book just waiting to be enlightened by bright lights like Fleur. Likewise, it would allow all sorts of trash to be "interpreted" as the "original intent" of Christ and the Bible writers until homosexual clergy, female priests, complete unification with other religions, and abortion are justified as "what the Bible really meant".
The next part of this recipe is to slap on the law school fraud of comparing every kind of differential treatment to racial discrimination. Despite research, evidence, and arguments to the contrary, homosexuals love to paint themselves as the new civil rights movement, the new martyrs to be freed, the new people waiting for emancipation. This fraud has been used to compare illegal immigrants, terrorists, and women seeking abortions to African-Americans struggling for rights and recognition. Fleur has clearly depicted bans against sodomite marriage as examples of discrimination dangerous to our society. Again, let me assure you, this thinking came to her in law texts and not from long sessions of theological meditation!
In summary, Rep. Marie P. St. Fleur is a clueless Catholic fraud who thinks that some law school notes and a position of influence grants her the right to pronounce what she thinks the Catholic faith is really about and where it should be going. Her words and actions clearly show her to be guilty of two moral crimes. First, she is spewing forth the lie that the liberal social agenda and the Catholic social agenda are one and the same despite the fact that murdering babies, playing God, and sodomite marriage are part of that social agenda. In so doing she is merely pushing the propaganda that liberals hope to hoist on Catholics in an effort to convince them to return to liberal voting. Sadly, she is also committing the crime of becoming a poster child for confused Catholics who arrogantly and ignorantly are distorting their faith not in the image of God, but in their own image.
Senator Marian Walsh.....Social Ecumenism
State Senator Marian Walsh, like Fleur, also claims to be a faithful Catholic, but she justifies her abomination with a different recipe than Fleur does. Walsh's argument is that "we are all made in God's image and likeness" and "all people are created equal".
She has stated that "God did not make any mistakes in His creations" and "Christ made all people equally and some of different orientation". In other words, to say that homosexuals are wrong for their lifestyle is to say that God is wrong for having made them when God is never wrong. Also, since we believe that we are made in the likeness and image of God, homosexuals are likewise made in that image. In short, God created homosexuality! Using Walsh's theory, Adolf Hitler could not have been wrong because he was a creation of God and therefore we cannot judge his actions or say that he should be viewed differently than others. We have all heard this "God did not make any junk" trash which is often used to protect all kinds of behaviors and attitudes under the mantle of "God made me so everything I do, say, and believe must come from God."
The Answer to Fleur and Walsh's Dribble
Contrary to the beliefs of these two mindless drones of liberal and modernist tripe, the Bible is not some antiquated scroll waiting to be interpreted by the moral geniuses of today. Yes, Rep. Fleur, it is a living document, but living in the sense that it lives within our hearts, minds, and souls as God's loving missive guiding us toward salvation! Living here means vibrant with God's Word and Christ's example and not morphing and molding to fit the moral wasteland that this society sells. Yes, Rep. Fleur, Christ showed us an example of loving the sinner, but He never embraced the sin. While He showed compassion and opened His arms to the marginalized, He never condoned, accepted, or embraced any of their sins and, yes, Rep. Fleur, homosexuality is a sin. This is, of course, unless you have decided to "interpret" Scripture on this subject to mean something else for your convenience. Yes, Rep Fleur, the Catholic faith is about a social mission to protect and help the marginalized but no, Rep Fleur, this does not exclude innocent unborn infants or justifies embracing sin to satisfy those marginalized. Yes, Rep Fleur, you claim to be "absolutely a faithful Catholic" but no, Rep Fleur, your views do not reflect that Catholic faith. I suggest that you go back to quoting legal texts and waxing poetic about social justice and stay away from attempting to justify your corruption of the Catholic faith. The experts that evolved from Vatican II have handled that corruption thoroughly, thank you!
As for you, Senator Walsh, God created Lucifer who then turned on his Creator. Since God created him, must we then conclude that what Lucifer did, has done, and continues to do is perfectly acceptable since, as you have said, God does not make mistakes in His creations? Of course, God does not make such mistakes for He is perfect, but He does allow for free will such that His creatures are free to drift off if they so please. God created the sinner before he or she became a sinner, but the sinner creates the sins which push him or her away from a God who is ever loving and merciful if we are willing to return. Yes, Senator Walsh, all are created equal in God's likeness but no, Senator Walsh, we do not all remain so since we all offend God in varying degrees and so therefore create the inequality which plagues our temporal and eternal destiny. According to you, Senator Walsh, we will all be saved since, after all, are we not all created by God and eternally equal? To say that we are all equal no matter what in the eyes of God is to say that He must save us all since to punish some and not others when all are equal would be the height of injustice and unfairness. Since God is perfect and all that He creates is good, we are inherently good when created. However, through our weakness and sins we stain that perfection and can only reach paradise when we have purified ourselves through adhering fully to God's Will. Since it is impossible for everyone to be at the same state or stage of that purification, it is our own sin which creates inequality and justifies unequal treatment based on our relative guilt and redemption.
If one of your children breaks a vase in your home do you treat that child exactly the same as the one who did no wrong? Of course not, since the child who did wrong merits some sort of consequence which the innocent child does not merit. To treat both children equally would be an injustice and would undermine your intelligence, your parenting skills, and your children's desire to do well. If you who are imperfect as we all are, no better than this how much more does our Heavenly Father know that He cannot and will not see us all as equals in guilt nor condone the guilt that creates the inequality of our souls!
Representative Fleur and Senator Walsh of Massachusetts have made news as supposedly Catholic lawmakers who embrace and defend sodomite marriage. Rather than being the pioneers of enlightened tolerance and compassion that blasphemous groups such as The Religious Coalition for The Freedom to Marry have cited them to be, these two women are simply clueless Catholic frauds who represent more their own ignorance than the faith they claim to uphold. Using their twisted logic and interpretation of the Catholic faith, these women would tell us that Judas did not betray Christ but merely represented a unique perspective on what Christ was about and therefore should never have been marginalized since he was, after all, created in the image of God.
Using their perverse logic, St. Thomas More and any saint courageous enough to die for their faith rather than betray it were fools because they died protesting people who the true Catholic faith should have embraced and accepted anyway. Using their thinking, Satan, Herod, Hitler, Stalin, Luther, Calvin, Henry VIII, and every defiant or evil historical figure should have been embraced, accepted, and condoned since, according to Fleur, Catholics must never isolate or marginalize those who are "different" and, according to Walsh, they were all "created by God who does not make mistakes".
On February 10th in the Massachusetts statehouse these two Catholic frauds were honored by The Religious Coalition for The Freedom to Marry, a motley liberal crew of mainline Protestants and Jews who reject biblical teachings on marriage, the family, and sexuality. In so doing, this organization cited them "for their outstanding leadership in upholding the religious freedom of every citizen in the Commonwealth by supporting marriage equality as a civil right". It is so ironic that these two women who argue that the Catholic faith is about inclusion, tolerance, and equality begin and end their positions by excluding, ostracizing, marginalizing and disfavoring the God they pretend to be upholding, interpreting, and explaining. So low have our moral grounds fallen that we are now being dictated to on Scripture, morality, our faith, and our God by two clueless politicians, two dopes on a slippery slope to perdition!
