…a plenary indulgence [will be] granted under the usual conditions (sacramental confession, Eucharistic communion and prayer for the intentions of Supreme Pontiff) to the faithful who, on the Second Sunday of Easter or Divine Mercy Sunday, in any church or chapel, in a spirit that is completely detached from the affection for a sin, even a venial sin, take part in the prayers and devotions held in honour of Divine Mercy, or who, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament exposed or reserved in the tabernacle, recite the Our Father and the Creed, adding a devout prayer to the merciful Lord Jesus (e.g. Merciful Jesus, I trust in you!”) —Apostolic Penitentiary Decree, Indulgences attached to devotions in honour of Divine Mercy; Archbishop Luigi De Magistris, Tit. Archbishop of Nova Major Pro-Penitentiary;

Do it.  Wipe the slate clean.  Start again. Don’t wait. Because tomorrow may never come and your eternity is a long time to spend somewhere you really don’t want to be.

Bahahaha.  Hey, this is just priceless.

The problem with atheism is that honest people hearing its loudest mouths end up in the other camp.

How those Martians doing, Dick? (Starts at 2:50)

On the same day Pope Francis called abortion “an abominable crime,” a Catholic school in Ontario raised over $1,100 for a secular organization that heavily promotes “family planning” to teens, advocates for abortion access, and promotes the abortifacient “morning-after pill.” (Source)

Free the Children, Save the Children, Empower the Children, Liberate the Children….

It’s all for the children, don’t you know!

Actually, what it’s for is for all us useful idiots out there who are very willing to be taken advantage of.  Why not?  Even when they’re outed, the lidless eye crowd gives us the same look they always do, “what’s the problem?”

There’s a better chance of the bishops gutting Development & Peace….which is to say none at all.

Modernism threatens the Church like no other heresy because modernism refuses to argue the Church’s doctrines openly and directly.  Instead, modernism attempts to sap the Church of its relevance.   Rather than attack the doctrines of God openly like previous heresies, modernism simply distracts the modern man by offering the allure of materialism. For example, instead of flatly denying the existence of God with philosophical arguments, moderns learn to embrace agnosticism by asserting that religion is not as important as other things in life like patriotism or “making a better world for our children.”  (Source)

When you just can’t put your finger on the foundation of movements like Free the Children, it all comes into focus when you remember what modernism really is.  Without Christ at the Center and focus of all our corporal acts of mercy, the social justice movements just become an exercise in philanthropy (which is fine in and of itself but that is NOT what the Catholic Church or its Mission is about)….and when you throw in family planning and promoting abortion…it becomes diabolical.

The devil is no dummy.  He knows how to mix water and wine.

…when it’s all said and done, don’t think you can hide behind the State for your justification of what you supported.

One day…abortion will be illegal again and declared a crime against humanity.

“But, clearly, what people say and what people do are different,” he says. “Of course, I knew that. But I didn’t think it would apply in this case.”  He adds, “I’ve decided to ask the Internet. I want to hear from the people who didn’t buy the paper because of that picture. Tell me why. I ask only that you are reasoned and honest. But I want to start a dialogue and genuinely understand why the picture put you off.” (Source)

Is it really that difficult for you to guess?  Homosexual acts are a perversion against the natural order.  People are naturally put off by it.  That’s why your sales plummeted, despite all the political spin on how great homosexuality is.  But don’t believe me. Please!  Keep doing it and keep learning this hard truth through an objective measure like money….and the loss of it.  Knock yourself out.

Most people conform and don’t tell you what they really think because they FEAR the Gay Jackboot…because they have a family to support and don’t what the Boot on their neck, threatening their livelihood.  Is that really too hard for you to understand?  Or do we need to draw you a picture?

Assault with a deadly weapon. Vandalism. Disturbing the peace. Worse still, intolerance.

Well, when you put it that way….Socon or Bust is more in love with the Lord than ever.  More grist for our Mill.

High Noon and the Ranchers win it.  So much for the “Common Good”.  Smirk.

This is the kind of thing that inspires.

Gets thrown overboard by the Educational system.    It’s becoming a common theme these days….as well as the typical “neutral” and spineless Episcopal reaction.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that our current Catholic leadership across the board is really quite pathetic.  It’s so pathetic that it poses a real danger to the Faith itself.

I am more and more convinced that the rest of us really do need to move on from the Establishment and the fraudulent system they prop up as Catholic.  Have lots of children.  Teach them the Faith.  And let attrition do the rest.  I don’t think the Bishops and the Educational establishment quite get it.  They are creating two societies in the Church by not applying Catholic teaching to pastoral practice and “on the ground” witness.  That’s very dangerous, but it’s exactly what’s starting to happen.

We’re sick and tired of our children and the Faith being thrown under the bus, because of servile cowardice to big money, loud-mouth activists, and gay media shills.

It’s Getting Awful Crowded Under that Bus. Another Catholic School Apologizes for a Speaker Teaching Catholic Morality

It will be over my dead body before you hear Socon or Bust apologize for one iota of Catholic teaching.

As a lover of history, I wondered about Henry VIII. I couldn’t believe someone so reportedly terrible could really be all bad. He had to have some humanity somewhere, right? I decided to dig and find it. He was maligned, I was convinced of it. During these studies, I finally truly became aware of what Protestantism was, or so I thought. I also couldn’t understand why Katherine of Aragon or any self respecting woman could tolerate his behavior. Then I discovered she was Catholic and cringed. Still, why was she also so unswervingly loyal to an oppressive church that hated women? (Source)

The paths to the Catholic Church are wide and varied.   What feminists really want is what they hate the most.  And yet, this lost daughter of the Kingdom found her home, once all the lies were brushed away.

Militia members from Montana and Utah have already arrived at the ranch and indicate plenty more are headed that way. Operation Mutual Aid, a coalition of state militias, is planning a coordinated effort of support, according to West Mountain Rangers member Ryan Payne. “They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” he said earlier this week. Payne said the county should prepare for “a band of soldiers” responding to the standoff, explaining militias are necessary to be “the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants.” (Source)

Now you know why Americans see the right to bear arms as fundamental to protecting their freedom.    And they’re right, too.  Sometimes thugs only understand the justice that comes from looking down a barrel of a gun.  If you donna speaka da language, you donna make them capiche.

Watch video here.

In 1993, The Federal Bureau of Land Management created new fees on public grazing land in Clark County, Nevada. BLM officials came up with these fees to discourage ranching in order to protect an endangered tortoise. Bundy refused to pay for grazing on land that he and his family had been using for over 100 years. Now BLM officers have surrounded the ranch and are forcibly removing his cattle. In the meantime, as protests have grown, the BLM has restricted free speech to designated “zones”, and even violently confronted protesters.

Story here.

This story basically sums up what the real problems are in the Church today.

1. Cheap mercy (and I do believe in real mercy, Jesus I Trust In You)

2. An obscence and inexcusable naïveté in dealing with the homosexualist agenda.

3. An inability to understand how the media communicates the Church’s (and the Pope’s) message.

4. The anti-legalism of Antinominism.

They told him to drop dead.  Now, it’s their generation and what they have wrought that is dropping dead.

Never a good idea to oppose the moral teaching of Christ and His Church.  Even if you’re not Catholic, most people can count.  We’ll be around to swing another day, nations, kingdoms, movements, and revolutions all eventually die out.

Sad days for Mozilla!

Comments 2 Comments »

Pardon this interruption of your TruthRevolt experience. Mozilla recently forced its CEO, Brendan Eich, to resign over his personal support for traditional marriage. The firing followed a vicious smear campaign against Eich by dating website OKCupid, in which OKCupid blocked Mozilla users from visiting their website.  We would therefore prefer that our users not use Mozilla software to access TruthRevolt, given Mozilla’s crackdown on political and religious positions held by millions of Americans. To sign our petition vowing to uninstall or cease using Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla users can still click here. Going forward we urge you to consider a different web browser for accessing TruthRevolt.org. (Source)

Socon or Bust has decided to block access to its blog for any user who is visiting us using Mozilla’s FireFox.  Socon or Bust calls on all Catholic Bloggers and other bloggers of good will who value marriage and freedom of speech to stand against Mozilla and block them.

What You Can Do

It is important that people give Mozilla pushback–and a lot of it–because the less people suffer the consequences of this kind of behavior, the more it will be invited in the future.

You want Christians to experience a new and even worse persecution than what they’re facing now? Do nothing.

You want to fight back? Here’s what you can do . . .

1) Mozilla has a web page where you can leave feedback on its Firefox browser.

THAT WEB PAGE IS HERE.

At the time of this writing, the feedback in the last day has been 93% negative, and many of the comments are withering. You can read them here.

2) You can tell them of your displeasure by social media, including:
