Calling all Catholic Knights

I’m deeply conscious of not wishing to upset our Knight of the Round Table, so Inde-fati-gable, Amfortas and his fine defence of Catholicism:

http://parzivalshorse.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/render-unto-caesar.html

… in which he points out that a true Catholic is the ordinary Catholic – you, me, him – though how he, an actual real K-nigget, can call himself “lay” is beyond my ken, you ken.

Never mind, the point is that it is not Rome which is the Catholic church per se but the people at the base of it.

Well yes, that is the case with the protestants too. The issue is the Synod and in Catholicism – Rome and the rest of the corrupt.

He points out this Magisterium thingy which I gather is the sum total of dogma over the two millennia but surely the noble Amfortas sees that the current incumbent and indeed, anyone since Vatican II, has deviated from that?

No? Well, let’s press on:

Did billionaire speculator George Soros, President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden, and Obama/Clinton adviser John Podesta conspire to overthrow the conservative Pope Benedict XVI and replace him with a radical, Pope Francis? Did they use America’s intelligence agencies, and our nation’s diplomatic machinery, political muscle, and financial power to coerce and blackmail “regime change” in the Roman Catholic Church?

Far from being some wild conspiracy theory, there is sound prima facie evidence to indicate that this is a serious effort to expose a political scandal of the highest order, involving flagrant, criminal abuse of power at the top levels of the U.S. government.

A group of respected Catholic lay leaders have sent a letter to President Donald Trump urging him to launch an official investigation into the activities of the above mentioned individuals (and others) who appear to have been involved in this alleged Vatican coup. They cite eight specific questions they seek to have answered concerning suspect events that led to the resignation of Pope Benedict, the first such papal abdication in 700 years.

You see, I’m afflicted by this curse of believing that if an animal climbs out of the water, it has two webbed feet, a beak and it quacks, then it is more than likely a duck – silly thing but there it is.

    I look at this whole thing and think that the statement of the Magisterium is so unequivocal that there are only two positions -either it is so, in which case the Lord moves in mysterious ways …

    Or it’s not, at least in that form. If this latter is so, then it’s hardly my affair but more His up there and I’m quite sure He has his own game plan in mind, should He exist. It’s not mine to interfere.

    There was a happy medium or rather tolerable medium in Europe in later years in which the Church was still highly influential but not exclusive of classical learning. Also, if you allow of Paganism, you also allow of criticism of Paganism as just another manifestation of satanism.

    Thus, a “debate” between Hitchens P and C is surely healthy, even if many things spoken are wrong.

    I look at “from their fruits” and what the fruits of Catholicism are. The non-Catholic reader might immediately point to the paedo priests, the gay priests and nuns and the rampant corruption the closer one gets to Rome and anything directly authorized by Rome.

    I look more broadly at Islam and the threat of Them to the earth, the two worst manifestations of this satanic force on earth and see that the Roman church is the last one standing which still utters the Word Jesus in a traditional context … until Bergoglio of course.

    Stepping away from religion per se here and looking at the socio-political effects on societies which confess that Word and those effects are clear – the shape of the old Europe and then its various colonies. And you can decide if this effect raised or lowered those societies.

    Also, with the removal of the roots of Christianity from society, whether it is better kiddies are taught transgenderism and gay males expose themselves, pretending to “marry” and so on, whether our society can stand up to Islam and Them any more.

    The non-catholic reader who immediately points to paedo priests is advised to look around him. At his own work organisation. At the other large institutional and business enterprises in his society. Does the aircraft manufacturing get disparaged for the few paedos, rapists, thieves, tax-avoiders and whathaveyou in their ranks? They too will be a tiny proportion. The farmers and fishing fleets? The railways? Woolworths? Microsoft? The postman?

    Yes, as a Catholic, I am dismayed that some, a tiny few, claimed to be catholic but clearly were not. To disparage an entire organisation for the miscreance of a very few of its members is bigotry. Simple bigotry for simpletons.

    I am dismayed that the Church is no longer seen as a Moral Authority, but frankly that decline can be sheeted home, in the anglosphere at least, to King Henry. It has been a long time declining. What is remarkable is that his spin doctors’ outrageous calumnies are still so readily accepted and believed. It is diabolical. Now, of course, we are busy forging new ones.

    ‘From their fruits’: looking for bad apples may be a useful job in an apple- packing shed, but the rest of the crop is wholesome and is all too easily ignored by the men not of goodwill.

      There is a fundamental difference between the Catholic Church and the organisations you list above. The church puts itself forward as the demonstrable paragon of God’s righteousness, whereas these businesses are there to make money.
      It is on account of its self declared status that the church stands utterly condemned before God, just as Jesus condemned the Pharisees.

      Its called hypocrisy, proclaiming one thing, but doing another behind closed doors, something the church specialises in.

      Woe unto you, scribes, Pharisees, hypocrites!

        ” that the church stands utterly condemned before God,”

        As far as I can recall, the Lord proposes first to judge us all at the End Of Time, perhaps we should do likewise?

        “”The church puts itself forward as the demonstrable paragon of God’s righteousness, …”” I don’t even know what that means let alone if it makes any sense. Hypocrit? Yes. Name me one who isn’t. Are you attempting to cast the first stone?

      Mine own work organisation was employing just such a ne’er-do-well in its ranks. Until this came out:

      https://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/09/19/it_bloke_accused_of_shagging_sheep_outside_football_ground/

      As for The Register soliciting for info as to ‘which IT firm’ he worked for, there hasn’t been a follow up indicating his then employer and his then employer would like to keep it that way.
      Trouble is, they all look like normal people. How can one pre-screen them?

    Anyone who supposes that the Roman church has pursued essentially unchanging dogmas for two millennia ought to open a history book.

    It is one of the most successfully sustained frauds in history, I’ll give it that.

    The phallic obelisk (symbolic of the sun god Ra) sitting on the feminine circle surrounded by an eight pointed sun wheel in the middle of St Peter’s square should surely have given the game away. Even then it was when I read the New Testament and completely failed to see the Catholic Church as being representative of Christs words and deeds that I finally began to wake up.

    It seems to me that whatever force or power it is that bedevils this world, its agents operate through the Vatican. Just as much as they operate through the Church of England and other denominations and religions.

    Phallic Obelisk. Hahaha. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
