“”Transphobia is a word created by fascists, and used by cowards, to manipulate morons”.

Everyone should dash over to Fr. H’s place and read his latest: Transphobia, fox hunting, and the SS

Another really bad idea: Communion Pills

Even though there is no danger of true true sacrilege (these Protestants have no valid Eucharist or anything like), there is danger of idolatry… and of being kinda dumb.
Perhaps it’s a matter of lack of oxygen at higher altitudes?
I bring … Continue reading

“I’ll take ‘25000 Words Of Blah Blah And Landmines’, for 200, please, Alex!”

I’ve been, as much as possible ignoring the Synod’s (“walking together”) document.  First, I’ve wanted a pleasant day.  Was the Synod really about producing a document?   Or was it about creating smokescreens and providing cover for the placement of … Continue reading

What I am about to post, read carefully.

A “puzzled” and “surprise” Card. Kasper is “furious”

You know how Communion in the hand was accomplished.  You know how the use of “altar girls” was achieved.
Libs intentionally violate the law until the law is changed.  That’s what happened. Moreover, even the restraints and caveats in the modified … Continue reading

Abbey to become a Harry Potter theme park

Holy Catholic Church is indefectible.  Christ promised that He would be with us always and that the Church would prevail over all the attacks of Hell.
He didn’t promise that the Church would survive where you live.
Keep that mind as you consider … Continue reading

Those wacky Germans. At it again!

“Up?  No, that’s really Down”, they say.  “Black is white.”  “2+2=5”
What?!?  You don’t see it?  Then you must either be a hater or you are afraid of something, or maybe you are incapable of loving.  Maybe you are stupid.
Since Amoris laetitia … Continue reading
