The NHS Versus Alfie Evans

With the NHS refusing parents' wish to fly their child, Alfie Evans (recently given Italian nationality), to Italy for treatment in a Roman hospital - in essence all but sentencing him to a slow death - these are sad days for Britain. The State is taking on powers of life and death that it should not have. In my view this is both immoral and illegal.

The culture of death is on the march.

The Blessed Virgin Mary - Our Best Friend

And we have no better friend than our heavenly mother, Mary.

She's there ready to intercede for us with her Blessed Son, and who would ever deny their mum a wish?

What Goes on at ACTA Meetings?

Do you ever wonder what happens at those A Call to Action (ACTA) meetings that gather to discuss how to make sodomy more acceptable in the Church or how ecumenical dialogue with the Zoroastrians is really paying dividends, when the topic switches to liturgy?

Oh felt banners are all the rage, as are syrupy hymns with words like "you are cup Lord, I am the drink..." and so on. Somewhat surprisingly the issue of (in-flight style) sick bags in the book-holders on the pews rarely comes up.

And if you forget where you are and bring up thuribles and incense rather than Tracey from the Co-Op dishing out the Eucharist... well you'll get a passive-aggressive whisper in your shell-like.

You plonker!

Haiti and Planned Parenthood - Hillary is Against Catholics

Our Catholic brethren in Haiti were betrayed by the Clintons who used the Haitians suffering to enrich themselves with the generous donations of Americans, and to carve up Haiti for members of their cartel.

It's as if Hillary's full scale support of Planned Parenthood was not enough to prove to Catholics, and men of goodwill, just what a corrupt, criminal sleazebag she is.

Bill Murray Loves the Latin Mass

I recently read that Bill Murray has a great affinity for the Latin Mass.

God bless him!

It can't be easy in Hollywood to state something so traditional. As Chesterton said, in a topsy-turvey society it's the traditionalist that's truly revolutionary.

So well done Bill. I admire your candour. Keep loving that Mass. It lifts our hearts, minds and souls to heaven in a way that I think it's fair to say that nothing else can.

What a shame that so many Catholic Bishops (at least in "the West") don't feel quite the way that Bill does.

Patagonia to Win! This Welsh Catholic backs Argentina

Now this isn't theological. I'm definitely a Ben dude after he reinforced the rights of the Latin Mass... but...

Patagonia (aka Argentina) are the Welsh B Team and as Mr Bale & Co couldn't get there yet we've had to settle for second best in the Principality. 

Plus I've had £1 on Patagonia (aka Argentina) to win before it started so... Come on #TeamFrank. 

How about you? I know it's not rwgbi, but we have to get into the spirit of it. ;)

Eurovision: Drag Act Crowned by a Minority

The bearded freak that won last nights Eurovision was chosen by a handful of industry "experts". The popular vote made up a minority of overall votes. 

It was a con. They voted for a character designed to promote their social agenda. 

For example the UK voted for the "soft porn" offering of Poland. Yet when the votes were dished out, Poland received one point from the UK, Austria got 12 points. 

We shouldn't be surprised. A cabal of politicians and media men have pushed and promoted the "gay agenda" worldwide. This is no accident. No 'happy circumstance.'

Call it Frankfurt School. Call it Bilderberger. Call it Masonry. Or call it a Coalition of the Deluded... Whatever it is, it is organised and it is against the Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ. 

The media will pretend the vote is a popular embrace of an extreme homosexual agenda. It is anything but. 

No matter what Graham Norton might say this represents!

A Call to Action, German Bishops and the BBC Agenda

I've just been listening to 'A Call to Action' being interviewed on the BBC Radio 4's Today programme podcast, re the Church's recent questionnaire on family life etc. results of which have been leaked by the German Bishops.

She (the ACTA spokesman) claimed she was not opposed to Church teaching (hint: they are), but wanted more consultation. Hmmm. 

Since Vatican II we've had endless collegiality. If there's one thing that makes faithful Catholics sink in their pew or run away to SSPX Masses, it's talk of 'collegiality' let alone consultation. 

As if to prove what a bad idea it is, the German Bishops leaking the result of their portion of the questionnaire is the cherry on the foul-smelling cake. I mean... Quelle surprise! It's pro contraception, pro-gay and pro-sex before marriage. If it weren't the German bishops would have sat on the results, if not buried them (no comparisons to the Third Secret of Fatima please...). 

What we are likely to see as a result of this questionnaire is a rift between the slowly dying, liberal Church in Europe & North America, and the growing, faithful Church in the "Third World"

Of course the Guardianistas in the BBC are cock-a-hoop, which is why they got in the ACTA heretics to bleat about the consultation. What ACTA and the BBC want (it's a unified aim) is the Catholic Church to be heretical and Protestant, with women priests, gay marriage, and acceptance of contraception and abortion. Despite the plethora of Heinz 57 Prod churchlettes out there who follow those lines, they want to bring down, destroy, emasculate and decapitate the Catholic Church because it is the Catholic Church.

The Church is NOT a democracy. We have an absolute and beneficent monarch at our head - God Almighty. We have a chief vicar on earth, the Pope, a post established by Jesus Christ Himself. We have dogmatic belief. All these give us firm foundations, surety, safety, security - all of which we need in a chaotic world of war, drugs, hedonism, selfishness, debauchery, greed etc. 

All of which makes me wonder why the Church launched this questionnaire. Why not ask us all where we stand on capital punishment? Or the European Union? Or  Vatican 2? Where does one draw the line? Why not elections for bishoprics. Or the X Factor for prelates? 

I know... I'm being facetious.  But there's a serious edge here. We are Catholics. We have Catholic Truth. We have a beautiful Faith with out-dates all regimes and secular isms (modern democracy has no real similarity to ancient democracy) rooted in the Mosaic Law given to mankind by God.

Post Vatican 2 'collegiality' has emptied Churches in Europe. Millions have lost their Faith. Souls have been lost. The false dawn of "the spirit of Vatican 2" has destroyed much of value, given us roller-disco church buildings, liberal schools, clerics with little or no Faith, and churned out generations of Catholic children with a weak grasp of their Faith. And we wonder why a questionnaire delivers answers that please the Tablet/ACTA/BBC crowd?

Recent news stories - not to mention Church scandals - should warn us that the 70's (the fruits of the 60's and it's sexual, political, cultural & liturgical revolutions) were an unmitigated disaster in historic terms. 

Yet here we are, going back to the empty slogans, feel-good mush and collegiality of the 70s. 

God help us all.

P.S. It seems, having delivered us the oxymoronic "gay marriage," the BBC's latest cause celebré is gender-neutral toilets and changing rooms for trans-sexuals. In a piece broadcast on Good Friday (I kid you not) they promoted this with an interview with a bloke in a dress, with no counter/sane view allowed. The enemy will never stop. They will always demand more... Catholics take note. The error and enmity of 'the world' cannot be sated.

When is a life not a life?

This week on Radio Two there was a fascinating discussion. 

It revolved around the case of a mum who had consumed alcohol whilst pregnant resulting in her child having a condition akin to mild brain damage. 

During the show we were informed that apparently this happens more often than you think, primarily with alcoholics and drug addicts. 

During the debate the unborn child was referred to as the unborn child, the baby etc. not once did we get the euphemisms of "foetus" or the frankly offensive "clump of cells."

Of course the idea of a mum harming her unborn child with repercussions for the life if that child has huge consequences and these weren't lost on the bbc. On Radio 5 Live a solicitor was asked if the mum had a "right to choose" as it was "her body" - a logical extension of the abortionists' myth, and rightly swiped aside by the solicitor. He asserted that the child has a future and the mother has no right to impose her short term gratification on the long-term health of the baby/child/person. 

How much moreso the mum who destroys the life of the baby, taking away the entire future of a person? Or of course the father who bullies and threatens the mother into killing the child? If a man in the street did that we'd call it "infanticide."

Being the BBC I'm sure they will move on from this, ignore it and move back to their cultural Marxism and purposefully whitewashing the mass murder of generations. 

Yet for a moment we had a glimpse of a society that actually cares for the rights of children and in the belief of the hopeful future of every child. And it was refreshingly optimistic.

Sodom & Gomorrah - Lest We Forget

An interesting article for all Catholics and all 'men of good will.'

The media like to paint "sexual morality" as personal, but it clearly has ramifications for wider society, as the collapse of marriage has shown via easy divorce, co-habitation, abortion - and now "gay marriage."

I'm sure the inhabitants of Sodom thought they were easy-going, advanced, liberal, free-thinking, popular, wealthy & above the laws of God... and perhaps even mocked Him. 

Lessons for us all.

Nazi Glitterballs, Gay Rights & the Sochi Olympics

To all the liberals screeching about the Olympics date, I ask why:

There is no uproar of America's policy of gassing people with the mental age if a child. 

There is no uproar over America's allies in the "war on terror" who have laws outlawing homosexuality. 

There is no uproar over China using political prisoners (inc Christians) & labour camps to make goods for 'the West' & the big businesses that grow fat on the profits. 

No. The BBC (& the NY Times etc) would rather go on and on (and on) about a law which is almost identical to the uk law prior to circa 1999 (hardly a time when homosexuals were hanging from lampposts). 

It is also a law which over 80% of Russians support. Is there any law in Britain so popular? 

Just last week a BBC programme reported from a "gay" club in Russia. My! How repressive to have clubs where homosexuals can go and fraternise. 

Am I alone in being sick to the back teeth of the BBC obsession with "gay" rights and especially in regard to Russia? When Stephen "Bless" Fry compares Russia to Nazi Germany you know things are getting silly. 

I bet the homosexuals in those "gay" clubs can't believe just how similar to Auschwitz the dance floor is. 

Glitterballs? Oh the horror!

Medieval Ignorance & Julian Assange

Sorry I'm being deliberately naughty. The headline should read ignorance of the medieval. 

You see some truly ignorant people,and some bigots (and I'm not sure which Julian Assange is), think that medieval people were ignorant of the Latin Mass, their Faith in general and kept obsequious by the priestly overlords. 

Now let's skip the fact that these people grew up as Catholics and went to Mass weekly, if not daily, and partook in many Feast Days (hence 'Merrie England'). 

There is little doubt they would have been imbued in their Faith from the cradle to the grave. 

And the priestly overlords? Well in a society that was strictly hierarchical, just as the Lords kept the power of the King in check from below, as the Pope kept the power of the Kings in check from above, the priests could speak out for the sheep in their flock against possible abuses by Lords, as Bishops could speak out from above. 

As Cobbett also made clear the "power" of the monasteries was also to provide succour to the impoverished, elderly, farm tenants and more. 

After the "Reformation" the greedy Lords grabbed the land, enclosed it and created more poverty which ultimately led to the slums if the industrial revolution. 

But above all else if we're to believe the lies of the stupid or the evil, i.e. that the "priestly class" lorded it over serfs whom they kept ignorant, can we ask why churches (which in medieval times were full of murals) had depictions of priests (and bishops) going to heaven - and hell!

If the priests wanted the faithful to all but worship them and regard them as all powerful, why would they remind the people that hell has its fair share of priests & bishops too?

That would make no sense, Mr Assange. But then neither would the Seal of Confession...

Oh. It's all starting to unravel isn't it? 

The Beetle Named after the Virgin Mary

I never knew the Ladybird was named after Our Lady. 

Wikipedia says:

The name "ladybird" originated in Britain where the insects became known as 'Our Lady's bird or the Lady beetle.[9][10] Mary (Our Lady) was often depicted wearing a red cloak in early paintings, and the spots of the seven-spot ladybird (the most common in Europe) were said to symbolise her seven joys and seven sorrows.[9] In the United States, the name was adapted to "ladybug". Common names in other European languages have the same association, for example, the German nameMarienkäfer translates to Marybeetle.[11]
