…He added: “There is some-thing in Sentamu which retains his African views and approach, which can be at one time an asset and another time can be a problem.” The retired bishop said Sentamu’s African background was apparent in “his understanding around issues of human sexuality.” Sentamu has opposed British government proposals for same-sex marriage.

Why is this hardly a surprise? In the pecking order, gay is god. And if you’re black and oppose the god, god help you.
Benedict XVI kills three birds with one smooth stone:
1) uniting true Christians under Rome’s banner;
2) hastening the demise of liberal “Christianity” in the Church of England’
3) giving the liberal-dominated English Catholic episcopacy in the Latin Rite some competition for the Faithful (My guess is that within 2-3 generations, either the bishops of England sober up and start teaching the Catholic Faith or the Bishops of the Ordinariate simply replace them completely)
Within a generation, the Church of England and its liberal comrades in the U.S. are finished. The only thing left will be their money which will be given to some “charitable” cause, advancing eco-worship or the lastest social justice cause.
Frankly, I’m amazed at how blind sin can truly make you. It’s not like these liberal congregations are bursting at the seams. They all practice safe, sterilized sex. Either with a condom or a private part not capable of reproduction.
No kids, no life, no future. Just one final orgasm, before the last goodbye.
I’ve been saying this for years, but this guy picked it up back in the 90s. Communism never died. Economic communism dipped for a while, but it’s coming back in the U.S. Moral communism, however, only morphed and reinvented itself.
…Looking at his Facebook profile, one immediately notices Breivik’s strong interest in Freemasonry and his photograph in full Masonic regalia. The apron identifies him as a member of a St. John’s Lodge of the Norwegian Order of Freemasons, the “regular” Masonic obedience in Norway. The circumstance that he was indeed a member of the Søilene St. John’s Lodge in Oslo has been confirmed by the Order, which proceeded to expel Breivik only after his imprisonment. St. John’s Lodges administer the first three Craft degrees and operate under the Swedish rite. Of course, no Fundamentalist would enthusiastically endorse Freemasonry as Breivik did. In addition, Breivik was a fan of online and offline role-playing games such as World of Warfcraft, Fallout and Bioshock and of the TV vampire serial Blood Ties, all anathema to the average Fundamentalist.
It is also true that, while endorsing in his book a traditional, patriarchal, male-dominated family, Breivik also mentions that in preparation of the attack “I have reserved 2000 Euro from my operations budget which I intend to spend on a high quality model escort girl 1 week prior to execution of the mission”, and explains that “screwing around outside of marriage is after all a relatively small sin”. No fundamentalist would subscribe to this theory, and all fundamentalists condemn abortion without exceptions. Breivik, on the other hand, is favorable to abortion “if the baby has mental or physical disabilities” and in some other cases, although he regards abortion in general as a negative phenomenon. On document.no he boasts about his friendship with the developer of the website “Deiligst.no, Norway’s probably the most profitable online communities despite the frayed moral concept”. Deiligst is a Web site devoted to promote casual sexual encounters….(Source)
Like I said in my earlier post, he’s essentially a deranged liberal who is honest about what is happening in Europe.
I highly recommend reading this excellent article from Patricia Paddey that was published in the National Post. She points to a recent survey showing that there are more Americans that teach their kids to believe in Santa Claus than in Jesus.
Lord have mercy on our unfaithfulness. No wonder our civilization is crumbling. We’re getting what we deserve.
Here’s a brilliant quote that says a lot about our modern culture:
Think about it: today’s Santa is the perfect deity for our day; he’s a god-man who is eternal, omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, who judges and rewards good and bad behaviour. He is a vehicle of undeserved love, forgiveness and grace. Children are taught to adore him and to please him with sacrificial offerings of milk and cookies. He dwells far off in another realm but promises to return regularly to the benefit of those who believe in him. The fact that he’s also one of the great underpinnings of the world industrial economy doesn’t hurt his appeal.
Children clearly have the openness for God, but parents have stopped teaching them.
How about you? How are you raising your kids? Can you honestly stand before Almighty God and say that you’re doing everything in your power to raise them in faith and holiness? Make that your Christmas gift to your kids this year.
As many have you have heard, the Ontario Superior Court has struck down the prostitution law and opened the door for complete legalization of prostitution. This is a disgrace. Let me tell you about my experience with prostitution.
The video below presents an interesting discussion on how Christians politicians in the U.S. are treated by the media. Canadian politics is no different.
The liberal media hold witch hunts against faithful Christian politicians but they give a free pass to liberal Christians who embrace homosexuality and abortion. That makes sense on some level. After all, the liberal Christian politicians aren’t a threat. Heck, they’re barely even Christian so there’s no reason to fear that they might change anti-family legislation on which the whole liberal lifestyle is based.
But the media overlooks a fundamental lack of logic among these liberal Christian politicians that should make them dubious candidates to hold public office, even in the eyes of atheists.
This was a wonderful speech by Archbishop Chaput, one of the few solid bishops in North America today. He hit the nail right on the head in every topic he answered.
If you want to hear a bishop teach THE REAL CATHOLIC FAITH, then I highly recommend this talk. It’s long, but it’s worth it.
As you will see, the good bishop takes direct aim at John F. Kennedy and explains why his abdication of his faith in gaining the Presidency has marginalized religion in the public square for all Christians.
We live in amazing times. They are times where a Catholic bishop receives a warm welcome at a Protestant university and is not welcome at a “Catholic” one. And the bishop notes this paradox in his opening remarks too.
