The Despicable Brad Warthen

Smoke of Satan & the Open Windows of Vatican II

It’s bad enough that Trump got as many Catholic votes as he did in 2016. The last thing we need is to see a cardinal even imply that Trump being elected was a good thing.

Protestants have a luxury that Catholics do not enjoy. They can avoid a great deal of left wing social justice Christianity by attending services at a Southern Baptist church. The Christian SJW’s are only interested in denominations with a hierarchy of fellow lesbians, sodomites, and Marxists and the ample real estate holdings of a mainline denomination. Catholics, however, find themselves occupying the same space with left wing scum that are not easily identified until you see the rainbow flags and Planned Parenthood stickers on their cars in the parking lot. These people aren’t actually Catholics but stealth modernists who fly low under the radar until all tradition and sanity are cleansed from the…

PART 3 FOR BOTH “HOW A POOR WIDOW ANSWERED HER CALLING” AND “GOVERNMENT-GIVEN RIGHTS VERSUS GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS”

In PART 2 FOR BOTH “HOW A POOR WIDOW ANSWERED HER CALLING” AND “GOVERNMENT-GIVEN RIGHTS VERSUS GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS” we merged two seeming unrelated posts. In part 2 we showed that the early church organized the first Christian charity to care for and honor widows. What Does The Bible Teach About Rights? In an odd way Part …

Smoke of Satan & the Open Windows of Vatican II

Bishop Guglielmone also noted that he continues to offer a dispensation from attending weekend Mass to the elderly, the medically compromised and those who simply feel uncomfortable returning to Mass in person.
THE CATHOLIC MISCELLANY

From the time I decided to become Catholic in 2012 to the closing down of Masses because of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have never missed my Sunday obligation to attend Mass. I have continued to worship via online streaming, and I will return to physical attendance when I am obligated to attend. But I am not returning before then. When I tell you why, I think you will understand.

For a few years now, I have had to endure the clown Masses of Father Jerk. Unlike many Catholics, I was actually happy to be dispensed from the obligation of attending this jerk’s offensive game show liturgies. I have spent many Sundays wondering if I cared…

In one way we think a great deal too much of the atomic bomb. “How are we to live in an atomic age?” I am tempted to reply: “Why, as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and cut your throat any night; or indeed, as you are already living in an age of cancer, an age of syphilis, an age of paralysis, an age of air raids, an age of railway accidents, an age of motor accidents.” In other words, do not let us begin by exaggerating the novelty of our situation. Believe me, dear sir or madam, you and all whom you love were already sentenced to death before the atomic bomb was invented: and quite a high percentage of us were going…

PART 2 FOR BOTH “HOW A POOR WIDOW ANSWERED HER CALLING” AND “GOVERNMENT-GIVEN RIGHTS VERSUS GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS”

Christ in the House of Martha and Mary by Diego Velázquez (1599–1660) Here we are going to try something a bit unusual and perhaps a bit screwy. We will combine two posts into one. As the title suggests, we will make this part 2 for the following posts: HOW A POOR WIDOW ANSWERED HER CALLING …
