The Thinking 

Explaining “Catholic” Divorce

October 1, 2015

ON the plane home from his U.S. trip, “Pope” Francis says the “Catholic” sacrament of marriage is not valid if one of the spouses is lacking maturity or is “mentally ill” or lacks “freedom.” First he firmly states there will be no change with the new annulment process. Then he boldly outlines the radical change:

And this the Church cannot change. It’s doctrine. It’s an indissoluble sacrament. The legal trial is to prove that what seemed to be a sacrament wasn’t a sacrament, for lack of freedom for example, or for lack of maturity, or for mental illness, or, there are so many reasons that bring about (an annulment), after a study, an investigation. That there was no sacrament. [The Airplane InterviewsCall Me Jorge]

Freemasons Sound Like “Pope” Francis

Syrian refugees off Greek island of Lesbos

SEBASTIEN writes from Paris:

Here is a copy of a Sept. 7, 2015 letter signed by 28 Grand Masonic Lodges in Europe requesting that governments take in a maximum number of invaders. The letter calls them ‘migrants’ but they are nothing of the kind. It is a manufactured refugee crisis of mostly men men of fighting age, very few of whom are from Syria.

Strangely enough, all the Grand Masonic Lodges that have signed the pledge are from countries where Protestants are in a minority. I guess these Luciferians believe that the reminaing tepid Catholicism is still a stumbling block to their plans of a global governement under the destructive slogan of liberty, equality and fraternity.

The Temptations of St. Jerome

September 30, 2015

St. Jerome 01

“After four years he went to Jerusalem to revisit the holy places, and to learn Hebrew more perfectly. Satan endeavored to disgust him with Holy Writ, pretending that the style was not so finished as that of Cicero, the pagan writer, whom he esteemed most highly, and often read with great attention. But God punished him severely for this. He relates himself that once, during a heavy sickness, it seemed to him that he stood before the judgment-seat of Christ. He was asked: ” Who art thou?” “I am,” answered he, “a Christian.” “Thou liest,” said the judge severely, “thou art a Ciceronian and no Christian ; for where your treasure is, there also is your heart.” Soon after this the judge ordered him to be scourged. During this punishment, Jerome cried: “O Lord, have pity on me, have pity on me!” The scourging ceased, but the marks on the body of the saint were a sign that the vision had been more than a dream. Jerome concluded from this that he had done wrong in spending so much time in reading a heathen orator. He laid all worldly books aside and once more began to study Holy Writ most diligently. He also translated many books of the Holy Scriptures from the Hebrew into Latin, and corrected others according to the Greek version, and added to all most learned commentaries.”

The Religion of Holocaustism

Auschwitz, 1945

Auschwitz, 1945

BILL R. writes:

Allow me to praise your courageous public skepticism regarding the official version of the “Nazi Holocaust” to which we in the West are all expected to show unhesitating obeisance.  There are few, if any, thought crimes deemed more reprehensible or more odious by our secular theocracy than heresy against the religion of the Holocaust, particularly by a white European gentile.  Members of that group, more than any other, are expected to have unquestioned faith in it since it is they who are deemed responsible for its founding.  And faith, of course, is exactly what you must have to believe it since not only are there not facts to support the widespread account, but as soon as one dares move beyond the faith to look at the facts, they immediately begin to lead you elsewhere. 

Many tens of thousands of Jews perished in Nazi concentration camps and, as you say, that was appalling, as were the deaths of so many others (more Catholics actually died in Auschwitz than Jews, for example, according to the death records kept by the Nazis themselves, which figures were independently corroborated by the International Committee of the Red Cross, whom the Nazis permitted to regularly visit and inspect the camps — an odd thing to permit, to say the least, by those supposedly engaged, at those very locations, in the wholesale murder of millions, an act oddly never witnessed by the Red Cross nor even hinted at by them as a possibility, though they were as aware of the rumors as anyone and kept meticulous records and eventually issued a several volume report on the Auschwitz camp alone).  But it also true, and ironically so, that many of those thousands of deaths were caused by Typhus epidemics and malnutrition that swept through the camps, particularly in the latter stages of the war, owing to the collapse of transport brought on by Allied bombing which prevented the resupply of the camps with provisions, one of those provisions being the dreaded Zyklon B, an insecticide designed to exterminate, not Jews, but the deadly Typhus-carrying lice from clothes.

Auster and the Jews

September 29, 2015

DAN M. writes:

I’m trying to figure out if you and Lawrence Auster debated about the Jews and anti-Semitism. You may remember that I was an avid reader and occasional contributor at VFR. It was in comments there that I discovered your writing.

I recall Auster taking a strong position that Jews (and other majority leftist subcultures) would fall in line with a more substantially self-assured and nationalistic majority culture. Read More »

THOMAS DROLESKEY writes of “Pope” Francis’s visit to the United States:

Jorge’s visit to the United States of America was not about preaching the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ. It was about evangelizing in behalf of the Judeo-Masonic gospel of happiness on earth that leads to the sort of impotent humanitarianism condemned by Pope Saint Pius X in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910: Read More »

“Pope” Asked If He Is Catholic

September 28, 2015

A simple woman expresses her fears that Francis is not Catholic. Francis laughs and calls her “rigid.” He says he has never said anything that departs from Catholic social teaching.

See Atila Sinke Guimarães’s anaylsis of the Communist and socialist rhetoric in Francis’s apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium. Francis speaks of the economy as a “caravan of solidarity” and says “inequality is the root of all social ills.”


A Summary of Francis’s Visit

September 28, 2015

INTROIBO AD ALTARE DEI has the highlights and concludes:

 “By their fruits thou shalt know them. Are grapes gathered from thorn-bushes, or figs from thistles?” (St. Matthew 7:16). Our Lord told us that only a bad tree produces bad fruit. Now, we see a man who claims to be “pope,” yet he preaches an earthly “gospel,” fails to uphold traditional teachings on the murder of the unborn and unnatural vice, never demands that people repent, and cites evil people for admiration. Even the magazine Newsweek asked, “Is The Pope Catholic?” The evidence of his own actions tell us the answer is a resounding “NO.” He is neither Catholic nor pope.


Sympathy for Assad

September 28, 2015



I suspect the reason for creating constant upheaval in the Arab countries (which also have quite a few Christians) is money. Arab countries have their own banks and from what I can find out, do not have much to do with usury, fractional reserve banking, or other dishonest money practices. The big bankers have to “break” these nations by getting them to borrow to defend themselves. Then they will owe and owe and the world bankers will take over their countries, and get their wealth which is what they have been after all along. They have never been able to get their mitts on this wealth and it sticks in their craw, to use an old hill-country expression.

Assad and his family appear to be normal human beings who just want their country to be left in peace. Assad knows who is behind all this. (I always felt sorry for Greece, whose king resigned and took up residence in England when the bankers staged rebellion in order to shame him into resigning). Assad knows what they are up to. The Greeks today are sad that their king gave up and left them to the type of government they now have. I hope Assad won’t go away.

Assad’s wife is British born, and the family looks just like any of us. The personal insecurity and terror that family must feel just has to be enormous. We should be praying for them.

Francis’s Election Invalid?

September 26, 2015

DON A. writes:

Ann Barnhardt, on her blog, posits that there is evidence that Pope Francis was elected invalidly. Evidently, there is a video of Cardinal Danneels of Belgium, speaking in Dutch I presume, admitting that he led a group that engaged in canvassing on behalf of Francis. According to the Universi Dominici Gregis, the Apostolic Constitution of the Catholic Church, the following edict is observed: Read More »
