The Last Supper: A Girls Night Out

April 22, 2011

 

THE LAST SUPPER was a feast for men, but no more. The custom on Holy Thursday, also known as Maundy Thursday, is to reenact Christ’s washing of the apostles feet. Most of the “apostles” who had their feet washed at the church I attended last night were women and I’m sure it was the same in the majority of Catholic churches.  So it is in the womanized church of today.

This is no criticism of the many women whose devotion is vital nor is it to excuse men for their absence. But Christ chose men for a reason. We can see today what would have happened if he had not. The faith would have withered a long time ago, drowned in emotion. When worship is feminized, men leave. When it is formed and directed by men, women do not leave. Read More »

 

An Oyster at Passover

April 22, 2011

 

A NEW YORK TIMES writer takes his Passover meal with an oyster, inspiring this excellent discussion at VFR. This sort of irreverence – shellfish is prohibited under Jewish law – is typical. The liberal Jew sees himself as superior to his ancestral faith and scorns it every bit as much as he does Christianity. 

As one commenter remarks:

These people, be they liberal Jews or liberal Christians, are always liberals first, and their liberalism consciously or unconsciously is used to undermine their religion. Thus all the anti-Semites who think Jews are out to undermine Christianity ought to be sent the NYT article. The liberal Jews undermine and desecrate their own religion in the name of their One True Faith, which is transnational progressivism. Just as liberal Christians are not somehow “duped” by Jews, but undermine their own religion in the name of their One True Faith, which is also transnational progressivism (a.k.a. universalism).
