The non-stop lionization of the late departed communist Nelson Mandela, who enjoyed being in the spot light as much as the Kenyan kommie, should make any right-thinking person pause and reflect on the matter.
Why would a drive by state run media, unanimously praise, adore and worship a mere man who singlehandedly helped take South Africa from a relatively wealthy and resource-laden country and turn it into the open cancer sore of what looks like multiplicities of economic and cultural basket cases in the US (e.g. Detroit, Newark, etc)?
That same drive by media is non-stop to inveigh against anything Catholic, Christian, pro-life, pro-normal family, conservative, Tea Party-ish and the like, but here they are non-stop heaping on the kaka like a farmer feverishly gettting ready for winter.
Pro-life leaders have cautioned Catholic leaders from lionizing this abortoholic communist, all of it falling on deaf ears, including (surprise!) Pope Francis, Cdl Dolan inter alia.
In 2007, Mandela announced ‘The Elders’ as a global council of retired world leaders who would give behind the scenes advice and direction to government officials and rulers around the world. The proposal was received by pro-life leaders as being of great concern since its membership formed a ‘who’s who of the pro-abortion and pro-population-control movements.”
While during his life, Mandela denied being part of the communist party despite his friendly interaction with communist world leaders, the African National Congress revealed today that Mandela was in fact a high-ranking member of the Communist Party.
“Madiba was also a member of the South African Communist Party, where he served in the Central Committee,” said the ANC release.
From Fr FC, a trad priest:
“So now with the death of the 95 year old Nelson Mandela, many Catholic bishops, priests, religious and laity are ignoring the fact that Mandela promoted murdering of the babies in the womb, homosexuality and population control. All of these three actions are condemned by the Bible and the Catholic Church.
“As president of South Africa, Mandela signed into law the most liberal abortion law in 1996 (Choice on Terminating of Pregnancy Bill). It replaced one of the best laws that protected the unborn in the world there in South Africa. He also taught that it was discrimination of sexual orientation to not support homosexuality. He widely promoted the use of condoms.
“I acknowledge his work to end racial discrimination. But, he played right into the hands of racist and eugenist by supporting abortion and population control. Margaret Sanger was a racist and gave talks to KKK women [ESH note: recall the "Negro Project" of Sanger and her trips in the 1930s to Nazi Germany to teach Hitler's people how eugenics works?]
“The whole population control movement is none other that to socially engineer genes of society to “weed out” races because they are close to the monkeys we evolved from. This all began with Charles Darwin’s concept of evolution where he showed how humans evolved from chimps and that the aryan race is the highest evolved race. So now that this was discovered by Darwin, it was society’s duty to purify the human race of minorities, the poor and defective humans. This is the reason for Hitler’s motto “Mien Kampf” (My Struggle to purify the Aryan race). Please study on Margaret Sanger and Hitler on eugeni[cs].
“Mandela was also a communist. Never forget that atheist communism is responsible for 125 million people being slaughtered. Why would anyone want to honor a communist? Do they love social justice? Where is the social justice for the people suffering right now in China and North Korea. Five young women went to the White House to protest that their fathers are in prison in China for being activists. Satellite pictures show where the forced labor camps are in North Korea right today. Do we really care about what is happening right now under communism? Many of the detainees are executed by harvesting their organs and then being sold to people who need organ transplants.”
Father FC is correct in his assessments. You won’t hear the cheers and singing of traditional Catholic hymns in support of his view.
Here is Mandela with fellow commies, showing his solidarity and support for the economic and religious philosophy that has been responsible for mass killings of >125 million in the last century. He always gave the “black power” salute the Black Panthers absconded from militant communists.
So, let us not fall into the trap of lionizing this man, as have religious and political leaders who think like Mandela in many ways. Dittos for Catholic and other religious leaders joining the band wagon, in fear, trepidation and ignorance. Just because all the lemmings are headed off the cliff, doesn’t make it right, nor does it mean you should follow to plunge to your own (spiritual) death.
Communist Mandela has gone home. Only not to the “ages” as said the Kenyan kommie on 5 December. Only the unknowable depths of the eternal God’s mercy could save him from the eternal damnation he chose in his earthly life.
Well known ex-president of Ohio State University, G Gordon Gee is reportedly set to take over as interim president of West Virginia University.
Gee is the anti-Catholic bigot who has made repeated gaffs in slamming “those damn Catholics” who he says one cannot trust during the week. He also made fun of the well known Little Sisters of the Poor a couple years ago, then tried to buy their forgiveness with a more-than-transparent bribe, er, donation. He served two stints as OSU’s president–fired earlier this year after his latest anti-Catholic gaff– and one as the president of both Vanderbilt and Brown Universities in successive jobs before landing back at OSU.
West Virginie is that kind of place that should welcome a follower of the Mormon cult like Gee, who eschews the decorum suited to the office of a university CEO by his goofy antics to be funny, wearing 1950s style bow ties and that loveable, smart-ass grin.
Good riddance to bad rubbish! The Mountaineers will tar and feather that not-so-good-ol-boy first time he gets out of line with a hillbilly joke about down in the holler.
And this way, he’s gone from the OSU payroll–where he remains to the day– in case he makes another gaff should the school prevail and be in the national football championship game this year in SoCal.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News’ Hannity finds that the Kenyan kommies’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between O’Bama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch.
That shows once again, don’t listen to what he’s or his surrogates are saying, but what they are doing. Is there any better proof that his signature policy of marxist overtake of the US healthcare system wasn’t even on his radar?
The latest mis-direction plan is focusing on driving fast food retaurants out of business with a punitive $15 minimum wage full court press by the Regime and their lap dogs in the drive by state run media. Don’t believe it. This is to take heat off the Obamacare debacle. Currently, abortoholic HHS CEO Sebelius is still in office to act as a heat shield for the Kenyan kommie’s failed takeover of your health insurance, it’s likely cancellation and a doubling or tripling of your monthly premiums.
Surprise! As an unneeded and unwelcome Christmas gift (yes, ESH did use the C-word!) the Regime is switching people from less expensive to costly health insurance plans, at times without their knowledge or approval, Daily Caller is reporting.
Not too worry! Dear Leader is out and about doing the one and only thing that he truly does do well: campaigning for his failing and failed socialized health plan, Obamacare.
Some people are getting switched to new expensive health insurance plans under Obamacare might not even be aware of it — until it’s too late.
If you have an insurance plan that isn’t compatible with the so-called pejorative laden “Affordable Care Act”, your insurance company might be automatically rolling you into the plan “most similar” to your own, whether you approve or not, whether you know it or not.
And, of course, no masonic-inspired diktat for mandatory coverages and $0 copays for abortifacients, so-called “contraceptives” often posing as abortifacients, sterilizations and any other items offensive or violating sincerely held religious beliefs, regardless of who the party is, whether a religious-run organization or a for-profit Catholic family business .
Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press with David Gregory, Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York said that the Catholic Church ideally would have backed Obamacare but for President Obama’s attempt to cram down violations of the First Amendment on Obamacare’s back. “We bishops have been really kind of in a tough place because we’re for universal, comprehensive, life-affirming healthcare,” Dolan said, emphasizing that church support for universal government healthcare dated back to 1919 in the United States. “So we’re not Johnny-come-latelies. We’ve been asking for reform in healthcare for a long time.”
Dolan added, however, that the Obamacare mandate which stifled the religious expression of Catholic businessowners had sunk Catholic support for Obamacare. “Where we started bristling and saying, ‘Uh-oh, first of all this isn’t comprehensive, because it’s excluding immigrant and it’s excluding the unborn baby,’ so we began to bristle at that.” He continued by saying that President Obama’s administration had asked the church members to “violate” the “dictates of our conscience.”
Dolan said, “we began to worry and draw back and say, ‘Mr. President, please, you’re really kind of pushing aside some of your greatest supporters here. We want to be with you, we want to be strong. And if you keep doing this, we’re not going to be able to be one of your cheerleaders.’”
Has Archbishop Dolan no shame, or knowledge of the 7th commandment? Just because governmentt is doing the stealing for some people, they still remain accomplices or wheel men for the crime…
Dolan seems to know nothing of the principle of subsidiarity and the authentic Magisterial social teaching of the Church. Here’s just one unchangeable teaching example that contradicts Dolan; there are countless others:
Pope Pius XI (1922-1939)
“120. If Socialism, like all errors, contains some truth (which, moreover, the Supreme Pontiffs have never denied), it is based nevertheless on a theory of human society peculiar to itself and irreconcilable with true Christianity. Religious socialism, Christian socialism, are contradictory terms; no one can be at the same time a good Catholic and a true socialist. “
Quadragesimo Anno (15 May 1931)
There’s a good place for Dolan & Co. to start. Government theft of 1/6th of the economy with its brand of socialism and croney capitalism can never be a good thing, for the industry survival nor for patients, nor for healthcare providers. Only the Regime’s croney friends win.
And in the process essentially making pharmacists, nurses, doctors and ancillary health personnel the slave workers under the Regime’s diktat, forced at financial, professional and legal gunpoint to violate their consciences and the most sacred tenets of their sincerely held faith.
Maybe Donaln can consider that the next time he wants to yuck it up at a fancy dinner with the Kenyan kommie kiddie killer, the most abortoholic president in US history, who oversees and promotes the extermination of millions of babies annually, by surgery, chemicals and devices.
The cumulative effect of 44 years of the Novus Ordo Missae (NO), or as some say, “nervous ordo” has left the Catholic Church in the Latin Rite no greater in faith in spirit, no increases of piety and good works, many fallen from the faith, a decimation of ay statistic of true measure or import to the state of the earthly portion of the Mystical Body of Christ, a phrase the conciliar church refuses to use, so greatly detached from 2000 years of tradition we are now for a variety of novelties from the absurdities of things such as “clown” masses and dancing veils in the sanctuary of the Holy of Holies.
Interesting comments about the English translation of the Mass: that some of the English translation is in bad English (thank you ICEL) and was deliberately done so. Remember that the liberal idea to have Masses in the vernacular, modern languages was hatched by the so-called “expert” periti and liberal clerics at the Second Vatican Council on or around November 22, 1963, the day Kennedy was assassinated and the day CS Lewis died.
Some readings from the prescient founder and humble leader of the SSPX, His Grace Marcel Lefebvre and theologian and historian Michael Davies:
