If A Loving God, Why Hell?

God’s Mercy implies His Justice.

The pablum I was fed was sweet indeed but a growing child needs savour also to be truly healthy.

I wonder now how many of the propagandists for God’s Luv in my youth were either effeminate themselves or influenced by such men and knowing no better. We now know that many/most(?) seminaries were not teaching tradition.

As children we had great fun re-arranging the furniture in our house. It’s a shame that adults did it to the core of their society: their religion. We children put the furniture back in its proper place at day’s end; the VII reformers did not.

God’s Mercy implies His Justice. If I have the power to show you mercy, implicit in that is that I have power over you; that I can judge you and then enforce that judgement.

So that’s the first clue; God is not a senile grandfather, he is Pater Omnipotens, the Just Judge.

The following is speculation; take it or leave it:

Hell is God’s Wrath manifest as a place and/or …

The absence of hope and
The absence of caritas and
The absence of anything good and
The absence of light and
The absence of God Himself and …

The presence of beings purely evil, who hate each other with undying hate, in a plastic, psychic, yet super-real plane,
lasting forever. Who torture each other, forever.

And you can go there and be among them, quite easily.

These Things The Righteous Profess And The Left Detests

Here is what every Christian should profess. If you find you can’t follow, or won’t, you have a problem.

I was going to confect The 13 Commandments For Leftists, which were basically the opposite of the 10 Commandments, but even writing them made me feel sick.

It’s also just possible the Left would take them and use them.

So here is what every Christian should profess. If you find you can’t follow, or won’t, you have a problem.

God has gone to a lot of trouble to convey to you the following. Why do you think you have any leeway? Do you think the Father Of The Law, the Origin of Justice, is going to overlook His own Law?

Do you think those saints who went to their deaths rather than profess to the contrary, were fools?

Ignorance may save many, but I wouldn’t count on it. There’s too much at stake.

The Ten Commandments

Douay-Rheims Bible, Exodus, Chapter 20:

[1] And the Lord spoke all these words: [2] I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. [3] Thou shalt not have strange gods before me. [4] Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth. [5] Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them: I am the Lord thy God, mighty, jealous, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me:

[6] And shewing mercy unto thousands to them that love me, and keep my commandments. [7] Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that shall take the name of the Lord his God in vain. [8] Remember that thou keep holy the sabbath day. [9] Six days shalt thou labour, and shalt do all thy works. [10] But on the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: thou shalt do no work on it, thou nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy beast, nor the stranger that is within thy gates.

[11] For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and the sea, and all things that are in them, and rested on the seventh day: therefore the Lord blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it. [12] Honour thy father and thy mother, that thou mayest be longlived upon the land which the Lord thy God will give thee. [13] Thou shalt not kill. [14] Thou shalt not commit adultery. [15] Thou shalt not steal.

[16] Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. [17] Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house: neither shalt thou desire his wife, nor his servant, nor his handmaid, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is his. [18] And all the people saw the voices and the flames, and the sound of the trumpet, and the mount smoking: and being terrified and struck with fear, they stood afar off, [19] Saying to Moses: Speak thou to us, and we will hear: let not the Lord speak to us, lest we die. [20] And Moses said to the people: Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that the dread of him might be in you, and you should not sin.

The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

The Our Father

Our Father,
who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

The Hail Mary

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.
Amen.

The Gloria

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Why Catholicism Is The Superior Religion

A Catholic hermit living in poverty is what comes to mind when you think of a typical holy human.

Catholicism is essentially monastic. Monks deny the flesh, the Devil and Self to draw nearer to Christ and to amplify Him in their hearts. Priests and religious follow this model to a greater or lesser degree.

A Catholic hermit living in poverty is what comes to mind when you think of a typical holy human. A monk in cloisters. A living saint. Know any locally? Maybe one? Maybe none? Thought so.

Contrast that with every other religion you know.

Orthodox Christianity allows a kind of divorce. A married man can be a priest. The Virgin Mary was not immaculately conceived. She did not ascend bodily into Heaven. Orthodox religious and priests can be holy, but their nationalist churches and easing of doctrine is where the rot began officially in Christianity.

Protestants allow divorce. They have, most seriously, dropped the sacrament of Confession. Their priestly orders are invalid; they don’t themselves think their priests are set apart from the rest of us by their ordination. They believe that ‘once saved, always saved’, which negates spiritual exercise. A protestant is not what comes to mind when you try to imagine a holy man. They, themselves don’t think asceticism is worthwhile.

Islam allows multiple wives. It has no monastic tradition I’m aware of. Muslims can morally make war on non-muslims and take their property, their women and their lives. It claims it is the final product of a line from Moses to Christ but rejects central tenets of Christianity. A muslim, even a Sufi mystic, is not what comes to mind when you try to imagine a holy man.

Hinduism and Buddhism. Now, here is where it gets interesting. Sadhus and Buddhist monks certainly look the part. But who or what do they believe in? No god, no God, or, a wide variety of gods, and mystical practices to go with that. Producing … men who can produce low level magical effects and personality change, but, that’s about it. No one is raised from the dead in the flesh, no one is cured of incurable diseases, permanently.

Paganism. Think about any occultist you know. That’s paganism: a man choosing to worship a created thing, or himself, or treat with demons. Holy? Ha ha.

Holy. Who is holy? Holiness is in the gift of God. ‘Sanctus’ is what the seraphim sing when they circle the Throne. Those beings of vast and unimaginable power are compelled to sing this word in the Presence of the Lord Most High. He embodies it and is its source.

In whom do you see it in your locality? In whom was it seen in the past?

Catholicism is interesting because it denies the world and seeks God, through Christ. All other religions embrace the world to a greater or lesser degree.

The Second Protestant Reformation 1960 – 2018

The aim is: Christianity on my terms, and not His. And the Devil laughs.

Recent evens in the Catholic Church have caused much pain and confusion to traditionalists. “What is going on?”, they say.

The traditionalist try to make the best of it and cling to the old rite. The neo-Catholics profess loyalty to the Pope and to whatever the latest ideology coming out of Rome is, while trying to show how it is not acccctttuallly heretical.

Mainstream Catholics go to church on Sundays and sing along to bland hymns leached of content, and wonder why their children are cohabiting.

The answer is simple.

We are enduring the Second Protestant Reformation. Most Catholics believe and worship in a way their forefathers in faith would consider Protestant.

The aim is: Christianity on my terms, and not His. And the Devil laughs.

– The altar table.
– Communion in the hand.
– Communion given to notorious sinners.
– Unvested laity reading from the pulpit.
– Faith alone will save you.
– Divorce, contraception, fornication are tolerable.
– No mention of Hell, Death, Sin, Judgement, for these do not apply the the Already Saved.
– A dumbed-down mass, where attendees stand or sit, mostly.
– The focus on the participants, rather than the Orient.
– The priest entertaining the congregants.
– Churches stripped of icons.

What gives it away is the forced, weary way we worship. NO ONE would pay good money to sit through a theatrical performance of such utter blandness, such dull keening, and yet we think this is fitting for the King of Kings.

The fix, is truly, in.

Why God Sends People To Hell

Someone who has willingly and knowingly disobeyed the Commandments cannot then just saunter into Heaven.

God emobodies ultimate power, will, knowledge and ubiquity. As the embodiment of both Caritas et Justitia, no evil can exist in His Presence. People who do evil reject Him. Those who knowingly do evil and thus knowingly reject God cannot enter the Presence of God after the death of the body. So, where can they go, being solely spirit? To the hell of Lucifer.

God made us. We owe him everything, much more than any earthly son owes his father. To take the gift we have been given and then smear it in dirt is a base insult.

For the crime of rebellion, and thus disobedience, angels were sent to Hell. Because we do not have immediate sight of the Presence we have more excuse than the angels. So we get Purgatory for venial sins.

Someone who has willingly and knowingly disobeyed the Commandments cannot then just saunter into Heaven. God will not be mocked. He does not change. He does not deviate. He embodies Justice as well as mercy.

It is part of the darkness of this era that people, even many Catholics, think that this is not so. In their minds God has gone from being the father of Justice to a sentimental uncle, who will look the other way.

If The Devil Wanted To Destroy Catholicism …

… He’d just need to water it down and sugar it up.

Frontal assaults haven’t worked in the past; the remnant remains and bounces back with greater vigour.

But, oh, getting clergy and religious to attack it from within and making that attack look like ‘progress’, ah, beautiful.

He plays to human weaknesses.

Pride: ‘My opinion is important. My will should be done.’

Desire for approval: ‘People are important; focus the rites on them and their wishes. We must not lose the People’

Laziness: ‘Ah, let us do less, it’s so much easier and simpler’.

Viciousness: ‘Let us make this vice no longer a sin, then we can indulge in it.’

Result: a hollowed-out religion which no longer attracts new members and repels existing ones. “One cannot serve both God and Mammon”; the contradictions, while not obvious, nevertheless bubble in laymen’s subconscious, creating disquiet. Pious people will be repelled and sinners will be find the excuse they need to not repent.

The really clever thing about Catholic Protestantism is that, officially, nothing has changed.

What Is The Purpose Of A Catholic Mass?

What Is The Purpose Of A Catholic Mass?

There are 4 ends of a mass: propitiation, thanksgiving, petitioning and adoration of an almighty God.

• The God that created all things;
• The God that cast Lucifer and a third of the Heavenly host into Hell;
• The God of Abraham and Moses;
• The God that sent the plagues upon Egypt;
• The God that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah;
• The God that incarnated so that He might be suffer a cruel death as an offering to Himself and resurrect in the flesh;
• The God that saints suffered and died to proclaim and defend.

_That_ god.

How should that kind of god be propitiated, thanked, petitioned and adored?

With this?

[Ha ha, says the Devil.]

How do the following help the ends of the Mass?

– Versus populum | Dropping Ad-orientem;
– The sacred matter handed out like groceries | Dropping kneeling;
– Prayers in the common language | Dropping Latin;
– Banal, sentimental hymns | Dropping Gregorian chant;
– Allowing effeminate men to become spiritual fathers;
– A total rewrite of ‘sacred’ texts.

[Ha ha, says the Devil.]

• The sacred becomes more mundane.
• The participants take it less seriously; they walk around in the sanctuary in lay clothes and receive the sacred matter without purifying themselves first.
• Bare-headed women in civilian dress read from the pulpit.
• The priest makes little jokes during the sermon.
• The music is soft and sentimental.
• The temple is stripped of icons and statues.


Tradtional Latin Mass
Yes.

207_MagicMass02
No.


The adherents of change keep doing the same thing over and over again, on and on. Do they expect different results? Or are they happy with the result: a declining protestant church run by and for old women of both sexes?

– They remind us that the god has made certain guarantees about his church (not realising that these guarantees may not apply to _them_)

– They cite the recent increase in decadence of the wider world as a cause of the church’s decline (the world has always been decadent).

– They state that the church leader cannot proclaim heresy and that ‘the church’ cannot order anything sinful (Arius nearly broke the church).

They make these arguments while churches close and parishes are merged and seminaries are lucky to see two new seminarians from any diocese in any one year.

Hear, O churchmen:

Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Do you understand what those words mean? Without him you are nothing.

Shamen half-kill themselves for what a good Catholic can have by prayer, the sacraments, good works, fasting and treating the Lord Jesus Christ as one would a benign king. Emphasis on the KING. One takes liberties with kings at one’s peril.

Have Christ as your master and treat sin as trespass; obey your Lord and cut sin out of your life as you would a cancer. Our god is with us.

But in focusing on ourselves more and more, He moves away.

All one has to ask regarding the changes is: Cui bonum? (‘to whose good?’).

[Ha ha, says the Devil.]

The End Times Or Just A New Tyranny?

Here is a list of events that may herald the arrival of the Antichrist, or just a new tyranny:

1. One world economy.

It is now feasible to give everyone a mark on the hand or forehead which will enable them to buy and sell. You can receive benefits if you have the mark. The mark can be an electronic implant or simply an encrypted numerical code. Your bank accounts can be debited or credited. Or expropriated.

2. Celebrity culture.

One man can now bestride the globe as a false saviour, through mass media. He doesn’t need to be moral; he just needs to appear to be.

3. Worldwide hatred of Christianity.

One may not now criticise any religion in public, except Christianity. Isn’t that strange?

At the time of writing, Christians are having their throats cut in the Middle East, with very little protest from Western governments or clergy.

3b. Resurgence of paganism.

Neo-paganism went overground in Glastonbury and California. It is slowly seeping into popular culture. Witches, demons and vampires have been humanised. Clergy and Christians have been demonised.

A man may admit to being a follower of Odin and the response is “how interesting”, instead of derision.

22.July ’15. PS: Now the Devil becomes a hero on TV: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucifer_(TV_series)

Lucifer hates man eternally and profoundly. There is NO love in Hell. Human beings are cockroaches to him. The creators should burn all prints of this project.

4. Boom And Bust.

When an economy hits a prolonged depression, the cry goes up for a Leader to save us. The world economy in general is looking quite unstable. Too many people are in too much debt.

Are we one, two, or three defaults away from a worldwide collapse?

5. The return of euthanasia.

Euthanasia makes humans seem disposable. It starts as ‘mercy’ then then becomes convenient, even malign. Germany’s extermination polices were a natural progression of its pre-war euthanasia culture.

6. Political correctness.

This is the great victory of Leftism. If you can’t take over a country by force or politicking, take over its culture. It is now permissible to shout down, prosecute and persecute people with conservative opinions. People are losing their jobs for off-hand remarks.

The scene is being set for a false saviour. It might be an idea for you to have a contingency plan.

Irish Sexual Pervert Marriage Referendum – A Plebiscite For Unreason

6a00d8341c730253ef01bb07d2bbfc970d

This man is the Prime Minister Of The Republic of Ireland. He claims to be a Catholic. He believes in an “energy or spirit [that] is around”. ” … an energy, a force, an almightiness there that is certainly beyond my reach”. ” ..I can’t see it as a person or as a being.”

He is reported as admitting that he doesn’t pray, but does go to Mass, to “communicate with that spirit”. His faith is “… my God, and my God is that energy and power that I feel”.

In other words, he is a pagan who was baptised Catholic.

This is a man, who dresses as a woman. He is a sexual pervert, who evangelises for his perversion. He is HIV positive. He promotes that which has given him a very serious disease.

He makes a poor sort of man, in the sense of being useful in a crisis.
He is a caricature of a woman.
He wishes to promote a form of contract which apes Holy Matrimony but which has none of the sanctifying, unitive or procreative potential of that ceremony.

Ireland_Same_Sex_m_3315915b

These are Irishmen and Irishwomen who are promoting, as a positive, a form of contract which apes Holy Matrimony but which has none of the sanctifying, unitive or procreative potential of that rite. This contract will be entered into by a minority of a minority. By its existence, it will destroy normal secular marriage, by removing meaning from it.

What Henry VIII started, this generation has finished.

Sex is now a merely a form of self-expression. Marriage is merely a contract between two human adults with genitals, which can be broken on a whim.

I look forward to reading about the first high-profile divorce and about how the property will be divided. The reasoning used should be interesting. For example, how will ‘consummation’ be defined?

We now know that more than 50% of the Irish, adult, voting public cannot reason well. They have legislated that a goat must now be called a sheep.

Calvary – A Terrible Film

I borrowed this film from the local library. I’m glad I only spent a quid to rent it (yay inter-library loans!)

How bad is it? Let me count the ways.

Plot: Stupid. It centers on an anonymous pentitent threatening to assassinate a priest, on an appointed day. Priest goes to his bishop about what to do. Bishop says “it’s up to you”.

Dialogue: The film starts with a disgusting, insane line uttered in the confessional and continues in the same vein; unrealistic, stilted and unimaginative e.g. the local Irish make cynical and insulting remarks to a girl, in her presence, about her obvious signs of having attempted suicide. As ye do.

Costumes: No Irish priest has worn a cassock since the 1960s.

Characterisation: The cast play a strange set of foul-mouthed, cynical, urbane people somewhere beside the west coast of Ireland. The central character of the priest resembles Irish clergy the way Bono resembles a trader on Moore Street.

I think the writers are trying for some kind of Roddy Doyle / Irvine Welsh-style realism. I’m not sure. I’ve only seen Trainspotting and read a paragraph of one of their books, given to me as a Christmas present. They don’t achieve it.

This film ranks up there with “The Quiet Man” as one of the most stupid, cliched and patronising portrayals of Irish people on celluloid. Except “The Quiet man” has John Wayne. The only pleasant thing is the landscape.

If they silenced the actors, edited them out as much as possible, overdubbed Enya and cut it down to 3mins 30 sec, Bord Failte would have a nice promo video.

Rosary March Barracked By Pro Abortionists Stratford London E15 09-05-2015

I was walking home today after a Breakfast Special, at Best Cafe in the Inshop in Stratford Mall, about 11.30am. I saw cop cars in the Crescent, where St. Francis’ Church is.

The police were peacekeeping at a demonstration by a small pro-life group, which was kneeling outside the Church. The rosary-reciting group were being ‘battered’ by the sonic efforts of the pro-abortion group. The latter were banging pots, blowing horns and whistles and singing pro-abortion songs. They were largely female.

Pro-lifers: singing hymns and reciting the rosary.
Pro-abortioners: trying to put them off, essentially.

Quite bizarre: women protesting to shut up people praying against Women’s Right To Kill The Life Inside Them.

On balance, who do you think, dear reader, finds favour with God?

IMAG0050

If you don’t believe in God, what do you think happens to you when you die?

If you think “nothing”, then how safe do you feel in a society which is moving towards killing its members when they are very young, very old or just ill?

In the end, what force will your opinion carry, anyway, if the law circumscribes which opinions you can utter?

IMAG0047

The wealthier, smarter Jews could see which way the wind was blowing in in the 1930’s Germany and skidaddled while the getting was good. Here’s hoping you and me have the same opportunity!

PS: Note the content of one of the pro-abortionist’s banners: “The only church … is a burning one”. The anger and the general ugliness of the pro-abortion groups tells me Who is ultimately behind them.

I mean, who in their right mind thinks that a young woman getting an abortion is a Good Thing? What’s good about a rape or an act of fornication (an evil) following by a killing (another evil)?

[scratches head]

Postscript: That same day anarcho-socialist types were protesting the result of a democratic election, outside Downing Street. I see Socialist Worker banners held by the protesters and the usual references to the ‘Tories’ (a party which exists in their heads alone). See here

Quote: "Protesters threw bottles, cans and smoke bombs at the police. Scuffles broke out when the demonstrators, blaring hooters, banging pots and chanting obscenities, confronted lines of police outside the gate protecting the Prime Minister’s official residence."

My emphasis, above. It is interesting that more subdued mirror of this protest occurred in response to people praying against abortion in a side-street in Stratford on the same day. Some of the placards the protesters used, in both cases, were quite extreme.

What do the two protests have in common? They were against law, tradition and suffrage. Leftists don’t realise that, come the Revolution, the conservative, Christian people will be the first to the execution chamber and they will be the second. They’ll be too much of a liability. The Great Leader will permit no potential opposition.

Remember what happened to Trotsky!

From Calvary To Cafeteria – What Don’t You Understand?

The Credo religion started around 2000 years ago. From the beginning, opinions varied about what to believe and how to practice it. Major divisions arose and were settled.
 
Fast forward 1500 years and a king of Albion, a small Credo country, wanted to divorce his wife. This wasn’t allowed by the Credo priests, so he did it anyway and declared himself head of his own Me-Church. He was helped in this by Credo heretics, who said he could do it. Which he did. More than once.

This Me-Church started dropping practices and beliefs of the Credo church. Since Me-Church was founded upon opinion, individual believers started to splinter from it. This led to the formation of a lot of Me-Tooer churches. 

Fast forward another 450 years. The Credo church is starting to be affected by the Me-Tooer church environment, which is trans-national and dominant in some countries. Members want the liberties the Me-Tooers enjoy; freedom of belief and practice.

It does not occur to this faction that a religion which changes its beliefs and practices cannot claim to be The One True Church; what was held to be true and sacred yesterday must be true and sacred today. Otherwise, it’s a free-for-all; your opinion becomes as good as mine.

Me-Tooers in the Credo church have some notable successes. They made major changes to the sacred rites. These changes made the non-priests more prominent in the rites and were operated in the local language, instead of the sacred one. Those who protested were barracked, silenced or ignored.

In 2014 an attempt was made by the Credo heretics to change the church doctrine. Another attempt will reportedly be made in 2015. This is obvious iconoclasm, yet, fascinatingly, many Credo apologists say it isn’t.

This writer presumes that such apologists would happily agree that a horse is not a camel and vice-versa; that a beast which hunts in packs and howls at the moon probably a wolf, and not a pussy-cat.

Often-times, things are what they appear to be. Credo sophists argue they ain’t, or argue that we should give the benefit of the doubt. Their corrupt view of Credo charity demands it. 

My view is that that which howls at night on the blasted heath IS a wolf. By the time Credo sophists are satisfied, the sheep will have been devoured.

At The Recent Catholic Synod The Enemy Shows His Hand

At the Reformation, an English king wanted to put away his wife.

We’ve come a long way since then, in the West.

Divorce normalised. Contraception normalised. Abortion normalised. Sodomitic ‘marriage’ normalised.

Euthanasia is next. Then paedophila. Then Satanism in the cathedral. And it will seem normal, for the ground will have been prepared by stealth, cowardice, peer pressure and clever argument beforehand. Not forgetting the darkness the Enemy befuddles mens’ minds with.

Based on reports of the voting at the Synod, in 2014, many Catholic bishops appear to have no problem in extending a ‘welcome’ to sodomites and ‘the divorced and remarried’ i.e. adulterers. They should be calling them to repentance, instead.

To publicly admit manifest sinners to Communion is an insane act; priests that do so will have betrayed Christ and broken God’s Law. For such sinners to receive Christ, without confession, speeds the sinners’ damnation. Unless we are supposed to believe it’s not really Christ Himself in the Host; this is the implication.

So, in a few weeks, Pope Francis & Co attempted to finish what Luther started.

If they succeed they will have destroyed the sacraments of Marriage, Confession and Communion. What they are proposing contradicts not just Tradition, but the Bible.
If they succeed then Rome’s claims for the primacy of the successor to Peter will have been refuted by his successor, Francis; for if he, Francis, is right, then his predecessors were wrong.
If they were wrong then the Catholic Church cannot be Christ’s true Church on Earth; it’s just one of many sects.

I’d like to think the bishops involved are just dull and don’t see the bomb they have put in the hold of the barque that ferries them. Can no one point out to them that what they dearly want has already been embraced by the Anglican Communion, and that it has made the latter not just a joke, but utterly marginalised, in public life?

It’s time the Church vigourously prosecuted heretics and admitted holy men to holy orders, instead of politicians, if only so that we laymen, who hire these professionals, can be sure of getting the classic service and not a suspect local variant.

How To Destroy Christianity In Two Short Sentences

How to destroy Christianity in two short sentences. Just make the following proposition:

God loves us.
Only the very bad go to Hell.

Which follows:
So what did Jesus die for then?

This is the root cause of what we’ve had to suffer since 1970. Unless this proposition is nullified, then Western society will continue its decline, which decline stems from a perversion of Christianity at its heart: the Catholic Church.

No fear of Hell => No fear of sin => A society of villains.
