"Monday" Morning Blues

Tuesday morning after a bank holiday. Huge queue of traffic into town as we all get stuck behind a tractor & trailer. Pop into bank & a huge queue of bods doing two days worth of banking. 

Just as the steam starts coming out of my ears I put my hand in my pocket and feel my rosary. 

A few prayers later & thinking of the tribulations of Our Lady and the suffering of Our Lord... And I am perfectly content and happy with my "first world problems."

Deo Gratias.

Bradley Manning - is Hero "Sexist?"

I kid you not. 

On twitter today the forces of liberal progression were scratching each others eyes out as to whether Bradley "Chelsea" Manning us a hero or heroine. One of them is sexist says loony A. No, the other one is sexist says loony B. And so on...

Oh to be a Guardian reader!

Still, small mercies. I don't think I'd cope if Bradders stuck on a frock and said "I wanna be called Cardiff City!"

Mental Illness & Antisocial Personalities in the Homosexual Population

This is an interesting study which looks at the level of mental illness & antisocial personalities in the actively homosexual population.

We should keep these people in our prayers.

St Paul's Cathedral & Anglican Heresy

Had a wee sojourn to London this week & whilst there popped into St Paul's to see what the prods are up to. Never been there before so thought it would be interesting. 

It wasn't. 

Lots of statues of soldiers, General this & that. Very few stained glass windows and very few images of Christ. 

My children complained. One said it felt like a courtroom. It certainly helped confirm that Anglicanism has officially moved further away from Christendom. 

It was not centred on the worship of Christ and the Church He founded, but on British military exploits and worship of the British State. 

Seperated from the nourishing Truth of Holy Mother Church, like the errors of Americanism (& to a lesser extent Eastern Orthodoxy), the Anglicans are set in a narrow plastic patriotism rather than wider Christian civilisation. 

We didn't stay for very long, and I left feeling reassured in my Catholicism but feeling very sad for England, Mary's Dowry.

For All the Left Footers

Today is supposed to be "Left Handers Day" but we all know that EVERY day is "Left Footers Day". 

One for the ex-army crowd there! 😆

Gays to Sue CofE Over "Gay Marriage"

It won't happen the MPs assured us. 

"Gay marriage" (think of apostolic Satanism or darkness visible), isn't even finished going through parliament and two homosexuals are seeking to sue the CofE. 

Can anyone get "we told you so" t-shirts, badges etc run off for the long litany of car crashes that will happen?...

Twitter, Trolls, Feminism, Lads Mags & the BBC

Sure is...
The link below is not to a Catholic site. Nor do I agree with all its contents (e.g. I think "lads mags" should be curtailed).

However, it points to a clever campaign by feminists. As usual they take the most extreme examples to push their agenda re the 'Twitter trolls'

I am not suggesting rape and death threats are trivial, but that trolls are. They have been around as long as the internet, and as the author here states they have made threats against others (including one unsavoury "right wing" character who has been assaulted).

I am reminded of newspaper articles and columnists who published features against "gay marriage" online. If you scanned down to the comments sections you would find the most obscene language and more by the forces of "tolerance."

That, of course, would not get airtime on Newsnight because they supported "gay marriage."

Anyone political will tell you that if you tweet you'll get trolls. if you respond to these sad individuals' bait, they will come back with more - and tell their 'friends' on various forums. Of course if you wanted this -- to highlight your radical feminist beliefs/campaign -- then it is easily done. If you didn't want it you'd be a fool, highly arrogant or both.

Internet trolling is wrong, especially when targeted against children (usually by their peers). But the immediate answer is easy. Make it simple for users (on whatever service) to report and block offenders.

I don't think we need an OTT response highlighted by the BBC to advance what is essentially a radical feminist agenda.

Perhaps if society taught respect for women at an early age, and dare I mention reverence and due honour to the Mother of God, we might not have these kinds of mindless trolls in the first place. Where has the idea that we are all made in the image of God, that we all have an immortal soul or that all women are someone's mother, daughter, sister etc.

And I think that goes as much for 'lads mags' as it does for twitter abuse.

(I won't mention opening a door for a lady as that seems to infuriate feminists; yet they don't get cross at all-women shortlists etc. - as Americans might say: go figure).

Interestingly (and as a bit of a post script) I saw a feminist activist tweeting about the campaign against 'lads mags' and I dropped her a line stating that I supported action against mags who make a commodity of young women, but that the campaign should be widened to include girls mags for teen and pre-teen girls because they seek to 'sexualise' young children and attack their innocence.

She flew into a rage and used words such at "patriarchy" to the effect I was some kind of fifth columnist. And that's the nub of it. They aren't interested in protecting children or stopping the sexualisation of children - they just want it on their 'equality' terms. And anyone who disagrees with them is a "class traitor" (whoops sorry, that's another bunch).

And that's why we should take their sloganising and crocodile tears with a large pinch of salt.

But then I'm a bloke, so my views may not count...
