ONE LIKELY OUTCOME OF THIS ONGOING ONSLAUGHT – WHICH ITSELF IS RACIST [WHERE “RACIST” IS DEFINED MORE BROADLY AS DISCRIMINATORY VERBAL AND PHYSICAL ABUSE AGAINST ANY DEFINED GROUP OF PEOPLE [SUCH AS COLOR, SERVICE PROVIDER, SEXUAL, STATUS, AND ANY SUCH NUMBER OF GROUPS] WHICH ARE TARGETED SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ARE MEMBERS OF A GROUP THAT BECOMES DEFINED AS THE “ENEMY” OF SOME OTHER GROUP[S].
POTENTIAL MAY WELL BE:
THE INCREASED ACQUISITION OF WEAPONRY BY LARGER AND LARGER NUMBERS OF CITIZENS AND RESIDENTS OF THE NATION AS THOSE PEOPLE ARE EFFECTED BY FEAR OF THE LOSS OF POLICE AND OTHER SERVICES SUCH AS FIRE AND MILITARY. THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED – MORE THAN ONCE – SINCE THE 60s IN PARTICULAR WHERE WIDESPREAD RIOTING AND LOOTING AND PROPERTY DESTRUCTION TOOK PLACE AS VARIOUS “LEADER” TYPES INFLAMED DIFFERENT GROUPS TO LAWLESSNESS IN A KIND OF FRENZY!
WE HAVE HAD AN ADMINISTRATION THAT HAS CONTINUOUSLY FOMENTED VIOLENT KINDS OF SPEECH AND BEHAVIOR BY RUSHING TO CONDEMN THOSE WHO HAVE SO FAR PROTECTED ALL OF US OVER OUR HISTORY – TO THE POINT OF BREAKING DOWN THE PROTECTIONS WE HAVE ALWAYS RELIED UPON BY IRRATIONAL, INSTANT, AND CARELESS THINKING AND ACTIONS – BY PEOPLE WHO SHOULD KNOW BETTER OR DON’T CARE BUT DON’T SEEM TO GIVE A DAMN.
WE ARE ALL LOST – IN MY FIRM BELIEF – IF WE DON’T RECOGNIZE HOW POWERLESS WE ARE UNTIL WE REPENT OF OUR UNCIVILIZED BEHAVIOR AND COME BACK TO GOD!
If one assumes [which is a logical response] that our Holy Father has written this exhortation under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit; and furthermore, as such, it should lead the faithful to a new understanding of the manner in which divorced/remarried[civilly] can be brought more fully into the Church, then the all time tradition of Church teaching needs a very full exposition of how it was misunderstood since that time when Jesus addressed divorce.
In my belief – supported by manifestly excellent and faithful teachers in the Church – the Teaching and Tradition of the Church cannot have changed because that would proclaim that for 2000 years the Holy Spirit has allowed a wrong understanding and practice to continue with the constant affirmation of the Hierarchy starting with the Popes. If the Holy Spirit has indeed permitted 100 generations of Catholics [20 years per generation] to be misled and that misleading has caused massive numbers suffering for countless divorded couples.
I then deduce for myself that the Holy Father has erred in this letter and it is not a true Teaching for the Church; or it is misunderstood by everyone who reads it as I do, and needs to be clarified for the Body of Christ.
Of course, regardless of all I am saying, there is now afloat in the world a mass confusion as to what the Church wishes to promote as an alternative pathway to the sacraments for those of it’s members who are divorced without annulment and remarried civally.
Pray for Clarity.
THE “NEW” GOSPEL REALLY SOUNDS GOOD IN GENERAL BUT IN REALITY IT IS A REWRITE OF THE GOSPEL WITHOUT GOD AND HIS SON, JESUS WHO PROCLAIMED THE ORIGINAL GOSPEL.
I READ THIS ARTICLE AND THE REFERENCED ARTICLES – ALL OF WHICH SOUND WONDERFUL AS HAVE EVERY REPUBLICAN, DEMOCRAT, SOCIALIST, COMMUNIST, ATHIEST ETC AND ETC. THIS ELECTION SEASON, BUT THEY ALL SEEM HELL BENT ON PROCLAIMING THE SECULAR GOSPEL AD NAUSEAM.
NOW I KNOW – AND THEY SEEM NOT TO KNOW – THAT THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR THE ONLY TRUE GOSPEL – IF WE ARE TO ACHIEVE THE LOFTY GOALS THESE NATURALLY THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SIN IN THE GOSPEL THE SECULARISTS PREACH. I ACTUALLY BELIEVE THEY ARE MOST SINCERE AND BELIEVE THAT THEIR BRAND OF GROUP, COMMUNITY, AND NATIIONAL LIFE WILL GIVE US THE HEAVEN ON EARTH WE ALL HOPE FOR. SADLY, IT CANNOT AND WE WHO KNOW THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUTH THAT CAN RESTORE THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND THAT ONLY THE KINGDOM OF GOD HAS THE ABILITY TO RETURN US TO PEACEFUL AND RICH LIVES.
SO THESE PREACHERS OF THE “NEW” GOSPEL ARE CRUEL INDEED AS THEY PROMISE THAT WHICH THEY CAN NEVER PROVIDE OR ACHIEVE. CROWDED VENUES AND STADIUMS WHERE CITIZENS CHEER ON THEIR FAVORED CANDIDATE WILL BE EMPTY AND COLD TONIGHT AS THEY WERE LAST NIGHT… AND UNTIL WE BRING BACK GOD AS LORD OF ALL, WE WILL NEVER HAVE A CHANCE, PERIOD!
THE UNITED STATES IS FULLY TO BLAME FOR HAVING OPENED THE BORDERS TO UNDOCUMENTED AND ILLEGAL WORKERS THAT WE WANTED TO SATISFY THE NEED OF DIRTY WORK OF FARMING ETC OVER A NUMBER OF GENERATIONS. WE HAVE NO MORAL RIGHT AT THIS STAGE OF THINGS TO DECIDE WE CAN NOW THROW THEM ALL OUT BECAUSE THE MARKET HERE AND IN THE WORLD CAN FUNCTION WITHOUT THEM.
I AM A CONSERVATIVE BUT IN MY BOOK, THE POPE IS CORRECT. WE MADE THIS MESS AND MORALLY, WE CANNOT NOW – IN EFFECT – PUNISH THE VICTIMS OF OUR GREED OVER GENERATIONS. WE OWE THEM BEFORE GOD THE POSSIBILITY TO STAY IN AMERICA. WE USED THEM AND SCREWED THEM FOR GENERATIONS. WHERE DO WE COME OFF SPITTING ON THEM AND SEEKING TO RUIN THEIR POOR LIVES? NOT IN MY BOOK. AS FRANCIS HAS SAID, BUILD BRIDGES FOR THEM AND GET SERIOUS ABOUT SEALING THE BORDER AGAINST ILLEGALS – IF WE REALLY MEAN IT!
OF COURSE, OUR LEAVING THE BORDER LOOKING LIKE SWISS CHEESE FOR ALL THESE YEARS HAS ALSO LET IN THE WORST OF THE WORST TO PREY UPON AMERICA AND ITS YOUNG PEOPLE WILLING TO TRY DRUGS AND THROW AWAY THEIR LIVES. IF WE THINK WE CAN CONTROL THE WHOLE WORLD AND CANNOT CONTROL THE DRUG NIGHTMARE WE CREATED, WE ARE PATHETIC AND OUR POLITICIANS ARE FULL OF HOT AIR TO BOOT!
SO, I AGREE WITH A PATH TO RESIDENCY FOR THESE POOR IMMIGRANTS. WE OWE IT TO THEM AND THEY PAID FOR IT WITH THEIR SWEAT AND TEARS SINCE THE DEPRESSION! THEY DESERVE IT NOW AND NOT HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL WE GET SERIOUS ABOUT THE NEW GENERATION OF ILLEGALS.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO DESCERN SPIRITUALLY THE SPIRIT BEHIND HUMAN ACTIONS.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS WHETHER SOMETHING IS FROM GOD OR FROM SATAN [AND PERMITTED BY GOD]
HOMOSEXUALITY IS A DISORDER – JUST AS IS DIABETES – A DISEASE AND SHOULD ELICIT COMPASSION AND HELP TO HEAL IF AT ALL POSSIBLE. WHEN THE DISEASE OF HOMOSEXUALITY IS EMBRACED BY PEOPLE AND IS EXPRESSED IN SEXUAL ACTS, OUT OF THE LATTER HAVE COME MILITANT HOMOSEXUALS WHO SEEK TO FORCE THEIR DISEASE AND ACTIONS UPON EVERYONE ELSE. THIS
WILLFUL SPREADING OF THIS DISEASE ON OTHERS IS THE WORK OF SATAN – WHETHER THE PERPETRATOR KNOWS IT OR NOT – AND SPIRITUAL LEADERS SHOULD USE EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO PROTECT THEIR FLOCK FROM THE EVIL OF HOMOSEXUAL ACTIVITY. THIS REQUIRES STRONG, HOLY, AND COURAGEOUS PEOPLE SINCE THE POWER OF HELL WILL SURELY ATTEMPT TO SILENCE THEM. AT THE PRESENT TIME,
FEW CHURCH LEADERS [WHO WORK IN THE FIELDS] ARE ENGAGING SATAN IN THIS WAR! THEY ARE NOT READY FOR PERSECUTION!
When the Church ceases to teach the full Gospel – including morals and all ten sacraments – the flock is left to the wolves. Even with Catholic resurgence of some courage from more Bishops – thank God – we are dishonest in not confronting the truth that massive numbers of Catholics have torn out of the Catechism great hunks of pages dedicated to Catholic morality.
The controversy in SF is clear proof of the pudding. Catholics are practicing the gospel of secularism because it tastes so good as compared to the solid food of our faith.
Honesty demands that even if all 350 American Bishops started proclaiming the truth that Jesus has never offered a clause to “opt out” of Gospel morality, His priests in huge numbers – good men who may totally accept the full Gospel, still use every excuse in the book to “opt out” of uncompromising teaching morality from the pulpit and that’s all we have to counter the media.
We starve when the pretense of current guidelines to preach the Gospel on Sunday has been interpreted to mean that the Gospel of God’s Love never addresses morality. You’re not reading the Gospel if you fail to see the whole Gospel. So, I urge pastors to stop decrying Catholics following the morality of the age instead of the truth. Why shouldn’t they? The gospel of the age is preached using every media outlet there is almost and the only place most Catholics have a chance to hear the Gospel is when they attend Sunday Mass where it is rarely fully spoken. Catholic media reach a tiny fraction of those who call themselves Catholic.
Is the only excuse we can come up with our fear that some Catholics will walk out of church if the pastor causes them to feel uncomfortable? Their kids in public schools are bombarded with every false doctrine imaginable while parents claim that they aren’t ready to hear moral truth in church!
REPUBLICANS HAVE DONE VERY LITTLE TO CAREFULLY LEGISLATE A BILL FOR NORMALIZING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND ULTIMATELY THAT MUST BE DONE. AS IT IS, THE PRESIDENT WILL SHOVE A TERRIBLE BILL DOWN CONGRESS’ THROATS AND THEY WILL SIT WITH EGG ON THEIR FACE.
WE MUST FACT THE TRUTH: WE HAVE ALL THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS BECAUSE WE – NOT THEY – CAME INTO THE US OVER A BORDER WE IN EFFECT OPENED TO THEM BY NOT ESTABLISHING A SOLID SEAL ON THE BORDER. YOU CAN’T BLAME THE ILLEGALS FOR OUR FAILURE – YOU AND I WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME THING AS THEY DID. WE LET IT HAPPEN SO THEY ARE NOT GUILTY OF DOING WRONG AND THEY DESERVE SOME REASONABLE LAW TO BECOME NORMALIZED IN SOME AMOUNT OF TIME WITH SOME CONDITIONS THAT CAN PASS WITH BOTH PARTIES APPROVAL.
THE DEMOCRATS ARE WINNING THE VOTE THAT WILL COME WITH OBAMA’S WAY – SHAME ON THE REPUBLICANS!
SHAME ON THE REPUBLICANS!
