Hypothetical my bottom!

Well, look at this little piece from the Irish Examiner
Speaking on RTÉ’s Liveline programme yesterday, Helen Lucy Burke, who interviewed Mr Norris for Magill magazine in January 2002, questioned his suitability for the presidency as a result of the "startling" views she said he expressed to her in the interview.

In the interview Mr Norris was quoted on his opinion on sexual activity in a historical context.

"In terms of Classic paedophilia, as practiced by the Greeks for example, where it is an older man introducing a younger man or boy to adult life, I think there can be something to be said for it. And in terms of North African experience this is endemic.

"Now again, this is not something that appeals to me, although when I was younger it would most certainly have appealed to me in the sense that I would have greatly relished the prospect of an older, attractive, mature man taking me under his wing, lovingly introducing me to sexual realities, and treating me with affection and teaching me about life — yes, I think that would be lovely; I would have enjoyed that."

He was also quoted on his views as to varying levels of seriousness of abuse.

"In my opinion, the teacher or Christian Brother who puts his hand into a boy’s pocket during a history lesson, that is one end of the spectrum. But then there is another, there is the person who attacks children of either sex, rapes them, brutalises them, and then murders them. But the way things are presented here it’s almost as if they were all exactly the same and I don’t think they are. And I have to tell you this — I think that the children in some instances are more damaged by the condemnation than by the actual experience."

In a statement, Mr Norris said the quotes were "misleading" and taken "out of context" in what was an academic conversation.

"During the course of a conversation, Ms Burke and I engaged an academic discussion about Classical Greece and sexual activity in a historical context; it was a hypothetical, intellectual conversation which should not have been seen as a considered representation of my views on some of the issues discussed over dinner.

"The article did contain other valid comments from me on human rights and equality issues but the references to sexual activity were what were emphasised and subsequently picked up and taken out of context in other media outlets.

"The presentation of references to sexuality in the article attributed to me were misleading in that they do not convey the context in which they were made. People should judge me on my record and actions as a public servant, over the last 35 years and on the causes and campaigns, for which I have fought, and not on an academic conversation with a journalist over dinner. I did not ever and would not approve of the finished article as it appeared."

I don't care what the Greeks used to do, and why they did it. It's still immoral and wrong, and this is a man who persecutes the whole entire Church, because of the extremely unfortunate "crisis", is now being a bloody hypocrite and saying men who have sex with boys is alright. Excuse me, but no, it's not.

Top 10 Traditional Catholic Wallpaper

Everyone Catholic likes a little bit of eye-candy for their computer wallpaper, especially ones which are of our favourite Pope, or Saint, Our Lord, or Our Blessed Mother. Here, I have compiled a list of the top ten!

   In the Pope Benedict Category, we have this beauty.... from Liguori Press! Edit: The original one was from the website "Santa Banta", they removed it becuase I was "leeching". I have no idea what that means, and I am too bloody lazy to figure out ;)


  A nice wallpaper of Our Lord, is this beautiful one from Miles Christi

  A beautiful wallpaper with Our Blessed Mother on it, here is another, yes, another from Miles Christi





  Now, this famous picture of St Joseph makes a beautiful wallpaper...

   If you just love the Vatican, or want a reminder to pray for the Church, this is a beautiful wallpaper...

  At St Peter's Cathedral, there is the famous statue of St Peter, of which thousands of pilgrims come to kiss his foot.

  For a beautiful wallpaper of the Holy Sacrifice, the FSSP has done a wonderful job.


  For church interior, most definitely you would have to choose Notre Dame Cathedral...


  The best wallpaper of Blessed Pope John Paul II, would most definitely be that from St Anthony's Church, in Kurusady, India.




  And last, but most definitely not least, is a the classic image of a prayer book or bible, with Rosary beads is this one from this blog, which I stumbled upon quite randomly...

And there you have it. My top 10! No one is going to fully agree, but please pick and choose. God Bless.

Please pray for England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, and Newfoundland.
Please pray for the Successor of St Peter, the Vicar of Christ, Pope Benedict XVI.

Truth

How did the Church of England decide that contraception was not sinful?
How did the Church of Scotland decide that openly-gay and non-celibate gay men and women could be "ordained" as ministers?
How the the Anglican Church in Canada decide to bless and accept gay unions?
How did practically any Protestant church decide what is truth or not? A vote.

How does that Catholic Church decide truth? It's slowly revealed to us by God.

Attack on the Church

One of many.

It seems that any government will find any way to attack the Church, they don't care what, as long as it makes us mad. First, dear ol' Ireland's broken government wants to force Priests to break the seal of Confession. Now Australia! I didn't pay much mind to the demand in Ireland for Priests to break the Sacrament, because it is just too painful, but now Australia?



Please, read more here

Say a Prayer for Ireland

Bless dear Ireland, o Lord, we pray.
Make her safe by night and day.
Bless her green, vast pleasant land
and her great Churches, for Thee they stand.
 
Bless her people, her glorious sea
that brought and made and gives history.
Keep them pure, away from sin
which the Devil tempts all, and their soul is thin.
Oh Blessed Lady, ever Virgin,
thou, who appeared in the green land of Ireland in Knock,
to Thee we fly and beg petition, for the Devil is 
at Bay, for her faithful Priests and Bishops loyal to holy Mother Church.
Let not his snares run rampant, crush his head underneath Thy most immaculate foot.
 
St Joseph who with the Virgin appeared, protector of all holy virgins, pray for Ireland.
St John who also appeared with Our Lady and St Joseph, pray for Ireland.

Oh St Patrick, and St Bridgit, thou who walked upon Erin's fair land,
pray for her for the Devil is at attack upon the Church's good Priests.

Pray for the Priests, good, pious and righteous. 
Pray for the children, that they may not be deceived.
Pray for her government, that it may stay true to the Church and to God.

O Priest of God

If the priest is a saint, his people will be holy.


If the priest is holy, his people will be good.


If the priest is good, his people will be fair.


If the priest is fair, his people will be mediocre.
                                               If the priest is mediocre, his people will be bad.

Requiscat in Pace




A truly Catholic Prince, the Crown Prince of Austria, has died. Please, say a prayer for the repose of his soul. He was a faithful Catholic, and a good Monarch! He was a fierce defender of the one true Church!

I'm still alive

Hello! I went to spend some time with my family, on my Grandmother's side, though she's (hopefully) come to receive her eternal reward. And, me and the computer had a little fight, so that ended up with me having to put Linux back on ;) Anyhow, I am back.

LGBT Mass

Utter disgrace.


Also, I did a little browsing on their website....


I found this.

Also, need I mention numerous abuses in this picture? First, why are the children gathered around? Why are they not in the pews? They're probably listening to Miss Tralalarainbow preach heresy about Our Lord and Saviour. Look at their faces.....the poor little ones. Trust me, kids HATE, HATE, HATE this stuff! They don't want, nor do they need dumbed-down happy-clappy catechesis. This gives them bad memories of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Then they wonder why attendance is dropping. It's because of the dumbed down, idiotic, heretical teachings and catechesis coming from the "parish directors" and the "parish committees".  Teach some good, solid Catholicism? No, that's too hard, twist it instead.

Ontaro Catholic schools must have gay clubs


TORONTO, Ontario, July 4, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – All of Ontario’s publicly-funded high schools, Catholic or public, must allow homosexual clubs if students want them, Premier Dalton McGuinty insisted Friday. [Here's an example of "tolerance". We are being forced to compromise the teachings of God's church, to make some yapping "gay" kids happy] He also admitted that his government is aiming at changing “attitudes” on homosexuality, a process he says “should begin in the home.”[Need I note that his Premier is a so-called "Catholic"]
“I am proud that effective this September, high school students who want their school to have a student support group for LGBT students will have one,”[That's not fine and dandy as he thinks. He has to realise that it's one thing to have it in a public school, but having one in a Catholic school sends an false message] said McGuinty in a statement read by homosexual Toronto Centre MPP Glen Murray[I suppose he's getting extremely emotional over it] at Pride Toronto’s international marshals’ reception.  “This is not a matter of choice for school boards or principals. If students want it, they will have it.”[There ya go, give 'em what they want. That's Parenting 101 for ya]
Referencing the backlash against the recent push for gay-straight alliances in the Catholic schools, [by people who don't even attend them] McGuinty noted that homosexual “support groups” have been “controversial” in some schools. [yes, of course there has been, there's no need of them] “We need to move beyond that,” he said.
The Premier also insisted his government is not satisfied with merely enshrining acceptance of homosexuality in law.  “It’s one thing … to change a law, but it’s quite another to change an attitude,” he said.  “Attitudes are shaped by our life experiences and our understanding of the world.”[so he wants to make it mainstream. He wants the gay lifestyle to be just as normal as waking up in the morning. Sorry but no, that can not happen]
“That should begin in the home and extend deep into our communities, including our schools,” he added.[Please note the Premier speaks with infallible authority granted to him by the many faithful of the provincial Liberal party *sarcasm*]
McGuinty’s statement follows a statement from the Ontario Ministry of Education in April, affirming that the homosexual “support groups” cannot help students “reform their sexuality.”  That statement led critics to slam the clubs as a clear affront to Catholic teaching: the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that the homosexual inclination is “objectively disordered” and calls Christians to seek a well-ordered sexuality.[Exactly. By having a "gay club" in a Catholic school, contradicts the Church's teaching. It sends a false message that we "accept" their lifestyle, which cannot happen. ]
Nevertheless, after pressure from the government, Ontario’s Catholic schools - with the encouragement of the province’s bishops - began setting up a network of clubs in April with the “primary goal” of combating “bullying related to sexual orientation.”[oh?] Nancy Kirby, head of the Ontario Catholic School Trustees Association, has insisted the clubs will not be used to “cure” students struggling with homosexual temptations.
Kirby and the bishops, however, have drawn a line in the sand by insisting they will not allow the clubs to be called ‘gay-straight alliances.’[though essentially....what are the differences. I fear that behind closed doors, behind the teachers backs, behind the Bishop's backs,  there are pride flags and feather masks]
And, for the moment at least, the government is not pressing them on that.  “Premier McGuinty did not use the words GSAs,” MPP Glen Murray told the homosexual magazine Xtra.  “I emphasize he also did not say ‘generic support groups or diversity groups’; he said specifically ‘an LGBT support group.’ He did not, however, use the words GSA.”
Leanne Iskander, a high school student in the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board, who has helped lead the charge for gay-straight alliances in Catholic schools, told the Toronto Star that she is disappointed.  “I don’t think what he’s saying is allowed now is much different from what we have,” [I wonder how well-catechised she is]she noted.
The Catholic Church insists that pastoral care of people struggling with same-sex attraction be very clear about the immorality of homosexual behaviour. [which is WHY WE CAN NOT have a gay club in a school]
“No authentic pastoral programme will include organisations in which homosexual persons associate with each other without clearly stating that homosexual activity is immoral,” the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith wrote in a 1986 ‘Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons’.
“We wish to make it clear that departure from the Church’s teaching, or silence about it, in an effort to provide pastoral care is neither caring nor pastoral. Only what is true can ultimately be pastoral. The neglect of the Church’s position prevents homosexual men and women from receiving the care they need and deserve.”
This same approach was re-affirmed in a pastoral letter by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops last week on ministry to youth experiencing same-sex attractions.  “Avoidance of difficult questions or watering down the Church’s teaching is always a disservice,” it says. “Such attitudes could lead young people into grave moral danger.”




Well, well, well.  The Premier, is a so-called "Catholic". He is therefore obligated to defend and promote Catholic teaching. He is doing the very opposite. He is spitting in the face of the Church, he claims to belong to. This upsets me. Morality has gone down the drain in Canada.

(emphasising and comments are mine, by the way :))

Let us have a jolly good laugh

The Church does not ordain women, because it has not the authority to do so, and Christ forbade it. This crowd gets so upset and emotion from the "injustice" that the Church is doing to them. So, let's have a jolly-good laugh and watch this (of course, it is quite sickening)
