Sapientia et Veritas -In short, Christianity (merely historically seen) can best be understood as an attempt to combine the reason of the market-place with the mysticism of the forest. It was an attempt to accept all the superstitions that are necessary to man and to be philosophic at the end of them. Pagan Rome has sought to bring order or reason among men. Christian Rome sought to bring order and reason among gods.” – G.K. Chesterton, William Blake

What Is Truth? Conformity Of The Mind To Reality. What Is Hollywood? NOT Truth – Nick Loeb’s soon to be released film Roe V. Wade is set to blow the lid off a story most ‘Muricans do not know. John Voigt is in it and so is Jamie Kennedy but the real story is all the Hollywood actors and actresses that agreed to do the film, then discovered there was too much Truth in it and bailed.
Loeb confirms several actors have left so far, but he says they’ve only been lower-level cast members. Among those who exited, he said, is the actress who was originally slated to play Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff identified as Jane Roe in the case.
“I can’t speak for them,” Loeb, 42, says of why people backed out. “Maybe they got pressure from friends and family after they said yes. I don’t know, I’m not them and I didn’t speak to them.”
Hollywood types are feeling the same “change is in the air” breeze that I have been pointing out on the show. While state after state gets more bold, thus more moral, the cult of death hysterically reacts to shore up its position. Considering what that position is, it is becoming clear that legal infanticide in ‘Muricah is at its nadir.
Tomi Lahren: Babbling Proof Faux News Is An Echo Chamber For Intellectual Midgetry – There has been a lot written and said about Fox News “analyst” Tomi Lahren’s vain attempt to use the murder of the soon to be born to make more famous and wealthy her blonde hair. Georgi Boorman explains to Lahren that Roe V Wade is judicial refuse not sagacious and holy writ. Sadly though, Georgi, like every other respondent to Lahren’s vanity, tries to shoe horn the anti Roe argument into Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence’s “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. This is a grave mistake. Jefferson, God love him [and I do], was not making an argument for life as in against murder, his statement is a Lockean flourish of enlightenment dogma i.e. its not pro-life in this context at all; its a life lived outside the Grace of an almighty God, in pursuit of Man’s supremacy over the “powers of the earth”. The alleged “conservatives” at Fox know exactly what they’re doing in retaining Lahren and so does she: red, white and blue bumper sticker slogans are bread and circus-y enough to rile up then rally the #MAGA faithful against Lahren and for everyone else in the echo-chamber. When one of them can frame the life argument using the Gospels, Commandments and Saint Thomas, they’ll then be “conserving” something worthy of the distinction, until then, you’ll get more Tomi Lahren “commentary” and yes, #MAGA/Faux fans, you’ll like it.
Yesterday’s Guest Chris Ferrara On Kavanaugh: “Be Just Short of Jubilant!” – Frequent guest of the Mike Church Show, Chris Ferrara, is positively bullish on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh: “My view is that we should be just short of jubilant.” Listen To Ferrara’s reasoning this morning at 10:00 AM, Eastern LIVE! on The Mike Church Show and later On-Demand here.
Ray Bradbury Was Right: “Stop Making New Machines!” – In one of his last interviews, author Ray Bradbury was asked for some advice, which he emphatically delivered. “We have too many cellphones. We’ve got too many Internets. We have got to get rid of those machines. We have too many machines now.” In Richard Freed’s “The Tech Industry’s War On Kids” you’ll find out that Bradbury was making a pro-life statement, the techs are with the demons, they’ve come for your kids and won’t take no for an answer.
“[P]arents have no idea that lurking behind their kids’ screens and phones are a multitude of psychologists, neuroscientists, and social science experts who use their knowledge of psychological vulnerabilities to devise products that capture kids’ attention for the sake of industry profit. What these parents and most of the world have yet to grasp is that psychology — a discipline that we associate with healing — is now being used as a weapon against children.”
We’ve all see entire rooms filled with kids who look as though they have 20lb weights attached to the ends of their noses and cannot physically life their heads from their “smartphone” screen’s gaze. That is NOT an accident.
Is Brett Kavanaugh’s Nomination The “Promise Realized” For Pro-Life Republican Voters? – Ross Douthat has posited that the nomination of Brett Kavaanaugh for SCOTUS is the first step in placing the deciding vote against Casey in the John Roberts court and bringing the hammer of justice down upon Roe vs Wade. I remain skeptical but Douthat’s not.
“I think abortion opponents will have that trust vindicated; I think a Roberts-Kavanaugh court, however restrained in other ways, will overrule Casey [based on Roe] and allow the states to legislate freely on abortion once again.”
I pray Douthat’s right but again, the prudent course is to diligently pray for this holocaust to end as the Russian Orthodox prayed in their closets and cellars for communism’s demise.
Why Are There Still ‘Murican “Killing Fields” In Afghanistan? – The “war” in Afghanistan is nearly SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD and yet President after President continues to insist it must continue while there is absolutely no proof it serves any purpose outside of MIC funding and political posturing for American politicians. This while our bravest and best continue to be sacrificed there making homes fatherless, PTSD suicide hotlines returning busy signals and all the other real-life tragedies that go with endless war. Doug Bandow chronicles the carnage and cost.
“Nearly 17 years, 2,400 military and 3,500 contractor deaths, and almost a trillion dollars later, U.S. forces remain on station in Central Asia. Indeed, Donald Trump has upped force levels, expanded CIA covert operations, and increased airstrikes. Overall, Washington is set to spend $45 billion in Afghanistan this year.”
Perhaps its beyond time for #MAGA ‘Muricans to make loud demands of President Trump that he honor his campaign promises to withdraw from this quagmire before more precious life and borrowed treasure can be squandered there!?
Kavanagh: Is Roe Vs Wade Now Safe Forever In Mordor? – The usual suspects in the “pro-life movement” are braying that all effort in finance, agitation, social media, lemonade stand campaigning etc, must be plowed into securing the confirmation of Brett Kavanagh to the SCOTUS because President trump promised to appoint “pro-life” judges and has thus far followed through. yet in a 2006 confirmation hearing for the DC Court of Appeals, when Chuckie Schumer asked Kavanagh about Roe, he answered that he would uphold it as precedent. See for yourself:
Scott P. Richert is the editor of Chronicles Magazine and he has sounded the alarm that Kavanagh may not just be Kennedy’s clerk but his apprentice.
“Kavanaugh’s confirmation will depend on the Trump administration privately convincing a few Democratic senators that, while states may be allowed to pass some reasonable limitations on abortion, Roe itself will remain safe… it may be too late to reassert the Free Exercise Clause in a robust way—especially if a Justice Kavanaugh proves to be Justice Kennedy’s successor in spirit, and not simply in his seat.”
This is perfectly in-tune to my oft repeated statements that any obsession over the federal Leviathan is primarily a waste of time and effort. To set those “brushfires of Christendom” (paraphrasing Samuel Adams) is a far more effective and prudent use of the same resources.
If Justice Kennedy Had Only Gotten His First Vocation Correct – Bruce Frohnnen has a useful review of the carnage wreaked upon the legislator’s power by Justice Kennedy over his 28 year tenure on the SCOTUS which also serves as a reminder of how all-powerful the Mordor Leviathan has become.
Netflix Assists Ascendent Demons – The humorless comedienne Michelle Wolf has struck yet another blow on behalf of Beelzebub and the boys, this time celebrating a star-spangled song routine on her Netflix show that revels in abortion. Netflix has now padded its kiddie porn offerings with demonic adulation of taking innocent human life all the while a studio audience, yucked it up, hysterically laughing at the entire death dance. Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up.
“Abortion, I salute you!
“Women, if you need an abortion, get one!
“If you want an abortion, get one!
“If you’re not pregnant but you think you eventually might be and want to order a future abortion, get one!
“If you’re pregnant and you want to be pregnant, don’t get one!
“It’s up to you, and it doesn’t have to be a big deal. It’s actually a great deal. It’s about $300 – that’s like six movie tickets. Movie tickets: a big deal!
“And women, don’t forget: you have the power to give life and men will try to control that – don’t let them!
“God bless abortions and God bless America!”
This was certainly authorized by Netflix because spineless subscribers will do nothing more than carp about this on Facebook and sign a petition “to let Netflix know this is unacceptable!” Alas, if it were truly “unacceptable” then Netflix and others wouldn’t even attempt it and that’s the point: the ‘Murican public will accept nearly any form of evil that comes red, white and blue wrapped as entertainment. The only correct reaction here is for subscribers to not be so any longer unless they want to be parties to Michelle Wolf’s infant snuff films.
The Cognitive Dissonance Boobus Americanus Lives Under – Paul Craig Roberts nails the points heard daily here and on the Mike Church Show: we live in a paradigm wholly created by man in defiance of nature and Nature’s God. Question” how do we think this is going to turn out for us?
What Does Laura Ingalls Know That Most Boobus Americanus Don’t About Independence? – Who could have thought while watching Little House on The Prairie in the 1970’s that 2 generations hence, we would be removing the house, the prairie and Laura Ingalls Wilder from libraries because her family had become a bigoted!? Casey Chalk has an interesting essay about poor Laura being kicked out of the recommended reading for children but he misses the point when he asks “Laura’s mother’s explicit prejudice towards Native Americans is heinous and unacceptable.” No, Casey, we don’t get a vote on “accepting” it, its already occurred. This placing of dead people on social justice trial 150 years after they died only serves to provide grist for reviving the “don’t trust anyone over 30” mill. G.K. Chesterton warned about dishonoring the past.
“It will not do for us. If we attach great importance to the opinion of ordinary men in great unanimity when we are dealing with daily matters, there is no reason why we should disregard it when we are dealing with history or fable. Tradition may be defined as an extension of the franchise. Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about. All democrats object to men being disqualified by the accident of birth; tradition objects to their being disqualified by the accident of death.”
There is nothing gained but much lost by this constant review of everyone’s past actions so that those living in grievous mortal sin can have something they can say validates their sinful existence and makes it superior to those who cannot defend themselves, call it pride-shaming.
Told Ya So: NBC Runs “Death Of ‘Murican Dairy Farmers” Story – Two Friday’s ago we had a wonderful 2 hours ofn the Mike Church Show when I brought up the plight of the ‘Murican dairy farmer and the need to find ways to start buying our dairy products from local sources again. Now NBC has run a tragic story detailing this abomination of corporate greed, government fiat and soul wrenching apathy toward agriculture. From the story.
“Many of the Kentucky dairy farmers who sold their milk to Dean Foods have not yet found anyone else to buy it instead — and like Coombs, they could soon have to sell their cows. They are just the latest of more than 42,000 dairy farmers who have gone out of business since 2000, casualties of an outdated business model, pricey farm loans and pressures from corporate agriculture.”
Folks, this is a tragedy of epic proportions that will have a lasting impact that is not measurable in dollars and cents.
Newsflash Not News: Media & Political parties Conspire To Keep ‘Muricans At War With Each Other! – Overstating the obvious was the stock in trade of John Madden… “bam!, then you hit this guy, POW!” but Madden was a character. The Daily Bell purports to ring the alarm bell and inform us that the 2 party system pimps, i.e. the Media Industrial Complex, non-profits, think tanks etc, all conspire to exaggerate the identities of political parties so that the hatred and rivalry of one against the other can continue. Ho-hum, yawn, this is 2012 “news”! Of COURSE they do this and I have come to believe that most ‘Muricans actually live their lives by it and LIKE IT! ‘Tis why I say, the Return To Order and getting the little, local things right is a far better alternative.
Three Years of Obergefell Is Enough! – I’d write this to say that 3 minutes of Obergefell is…. but Nathaniel Blake has a point and brings to light a frequent topic of conversation and a real alarm bell to ring: Obergefell made “legal” a gravely sinful practice that has already cause millions of souls to be placed in jeopardy of losing a Blessed Eternity. This includes the loss of millions of families that will not be formed and the tens of millions of babies who will not be born in exchange for “relationships” and relentless acquisition of “stuff” and “leisure”. Blake:
“We are in a crisis of marriage and family. Much of our political and cultural dysfunction is the fallout of broken families and failed relationships — abandoned children and lonely, hurt men and women. Again, this was not caused by same-sex marriage or the LGBT movement, but accepting their ideological framework will impede amelioration. The healing truths that our culture needs are incompatible with an ideology that muddles the differences between men and women, and that rejects the unique value of the natural family.”
Blake manages to make a solid case, philosophically, proving the whole LGBTQ is repugnant to the natural order and world as it is to the Spiritual one of The Creator.
Ant’ny Kennedy Must Not Be Allowed To Die! – These are the paraphrased words of MBD (Michael Brendan Dougherty) backn in January at the National Review. MBD’s point was that ‘Muricah needed Justices to mete out victory for the “left” and then later on for the “right” to achieve a sort of equilibrium for our battered “republic”. MBD’s reasoning is sound IF you’re a USA! USA! chanter and believe that all of Blobistan, the North ‘Murican continent, must remain irrevocably linked via a universal political system.
“The Supreme Court’s role in this scene, with Kennedy as the swing justice, has been to moderate and restrain the ambitions of each party. Kennedy deals out victories and defeats to each side — giving slightly more defeats to social conservatives. In effect, he constrains what each side can do to the other. His mercurial jurisprudence replicates and even gives the savor of legitimacy to a closely divided country.
So I’ve started to worry that if the Court soon consolidates to the left or the right, partisans on the losing end of that bargain will swiftly lose faith in democracy itself. A non-swinging Supreme Court would give the impression of super-charging the ability of one party to act, and restraining its competitor. A consolidated Supreme Court could open up whole new fields of legislation for one side to act against the other. At that point, what would happen?”
What would happen would be a spring-time for anarchists and the diabolically inclined. Imagine a scene from Mad Max but put it in downtown Peoria and that’s what Blobistan’s collapse will produce. Why? Because we have jettisoned the only True, organizing principle, post-pagan Man can live under, Christ.
Did The SCOTUS Just Rule That Sodomites CANNOT Compel Me To Endorse Their Sin!? – I believe they may just have done so. David French explains the Janus decision, handed down yesterday.
Justice Alito, writing for the majority, spoke clearly: When speech is compelled, however, additional damage is done. In that situation, individuals are coerced into betraying their convictions. Forcing free and independent individuals to endorse ideas they find objectionable is always demeaning, and for this reason, one of our landmark free speech cases said that a law commanding “involuntary affirmation” of objected-to beliefs would require “even more immediate and urgent grounds” than a law demanding silence. Alito even twice quoted Thomas Jefferson’s famous declaration that “to compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhor[s] is sinful and tyrannical.”
Before you go popping champagne corks, caveat emptor, if you concede the Court the power to “strike down” state-passed laws that are not covered by the incorporation of the 1st Amendment you leave the door open for a future court to do the same thing to a state law that is Just and Returns us To Order.
#MAGA CITIZEN! There Are Ten Ways You Can Make ‘Muricah Great Again Citizen! – Mark Overstreet, you have to love the guy. He has penned a “how to” list of 10 thinsg every #MAGA citizen can do to defeat those smelly liberals and make ‘Muricah Great Again. I agree with 3 of Overstreet’s tasks but the funny thing is, I agree with every bit of his presentation: he is channeling the theological virtue of Hope (whether he knows it or not) and for that, I suggest reading and commenting on his post. God love you, Mark!
Then They Came For A Fish Called Wanda – The BBC has informed the surviving members of Monty Python that “they couldn’t make it on the BBC today” because they aren’t “diverse enough” and isn’t “PC”. That must mean that A Fish Called Wanda should have been named A Legless Creature Who Has Yet To Choose Its Name, Species Or Gender. James Pinkerton observes.
“It’s almost unnecessary to add that PC, bristling with psychological pseudo-science, is also humorless. Scientists, after all, are not known as jokesters, and neither, evidently, are pseudo-scientists. We can quickly see that in the face of such iron dogmatism, poor old Monty Python doesn’t have a chance. If its existence depends on the sufferance of a thoroughly PC-ized British public sector, then of course it must go down the memory hole.”
The time has finally come to make hard choices and if the choice is between Search For The Holy Grail and PC approved, state sponsored Fractured Tranny Tales you can find me with my VCR, 27 inch tube TV, laughing about how much African Swallows weigh.
The Logic of Today’s “Conservatism” Produced The Republican Pimp Candidate – I have interviewed Dennis Hof a half dozen times back in 2004-2006 in the REALLY old station/old country. At the time he was making a name for himself by offering up the sexual services, legally in Reno, NV, of formerly famous women. Today Hof is the Republican nominee for a state assembly seat and yes, he still runs his brothel and sells liaisons with formerly famous women. Some “conservatives” have reacted to Hof’s electoral victory, followed by “the party of Trump’s” endorsement as an outrage against conservatism; yet, as I have proven a couple thousand times in this space and on the Mike Church Show, there is nothing that can be cited that universally defines what a “conservative” is or what he is “conserving”. Instead a “conservative” is someone who is for or against a pre-determined menu of political policies, leaving that “conservative” to have been intellectually formed and live by any philosophy or religion, so long as they vote “correctly”. The flaws in this “system” should be obvious so it is only fitting and logical that a Dennis Hof would become a “conservative” in the same manner one Donald Trump is now a “conservative”. And the joke remains on the souls who think “conservatives” are for conserving what they know to be the Good, True and Beautiful.
FROM CANON 212 DOT COM: The Purge Must Begin Now So Real Men of God Can Answer God’s Call – Donald McClarey sums up what many are thinking upon learning the news of Cardinal McClarick’s pereverted life. “For too long the Church, too often, has not been ordaining men but rather craven careerists who will do anything, anything, to protect their phony baloney jobs. They are not only unworthy of being priests, they are unworthy to be called men.” Indeed, the purge needs to start in earnest and will accelerate once the faithful withdraw their support from those who supported the new inconoclasm that produced “priests” like McClarick.
Kicked Out Huckabee Sanders Saga Shows Libtards Realizing The Power of Private Property – Say what you want about the owner of the Red Hen Restaurant in rural, NOVA, but she acted upon her rightful ownership of private property when she asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave her restaurant because of the owner’s “moral objections” to POTUS. According to the Washington Post he restaurant’s owner said this about her decision.
“I would have done the same thing again,” she said “We just felt there are moments in time when people need to live their convictions. This appeared to be one.”
So, Ms. Wilkinson can “live her convictions” on her private property – her restaurant – and she is an approved, SJW hero but if a Christian tries to live “their convictions” by refusing a specific service, they must be coerced to subdue their “convictions”. Recall Rachel Maddow’s interrogation of then candidate for the GOP nomination to run for senate in KY. Maddow ambushed Paul with a harangue about how he could reconcile “privater property rights and the 1964 Civil Rights act.
Has Hollywood Taken A RIGHT Turn At Albuquerque? – First there was the undeniable pro-life messages delivered by Avengers-Infinity War and now comes the sanctity of life being promoted in Jurassic World. The dinosaurs are still the stars but there is a subtle yet unmistakable recurring theme in the film: nature has a way of mkaing and continuing life, messing with it produces monstrous results. This includes *SPOILER ALERT* the revelation that the new teenage heroine the franchise is developing is actually a clone-the product of the same DNA tampering that produces the dinosaurs.
I Thought Farm Aid Was Supposed To Save Rural ‘Muricah?! – Vincent David Johnson has done us the signal favor of traveling to photograph the ghost farms of the great, ‘Murican countryside and there are a lot more of them than we are told about. Johnson:
“Little did I know that when I started, the 1990s in many ways would turned out to be a pivotal decade for small farm towns and rural America, almost the beginning of the end. Just over a century since millions of people rushed onto the Great Plains, the ’90s would mark the beginning of a time when the quantity, size, and labor of farms in America would flatline.”
This tragedy is one of our elite ruling master’s making. The very idea that a civilization must grow the food needed to sustain itself should guarantee the endurance of the farms that grow that food, enter the agri business cartels.Our food isn’t grown anymore, its “processed” and you don’t need many Old Macdonald’s to produce the staple crops to do that. Johnson’s story is a sad one but it doesn’t have to be a requiem… people still gotta eat.
“What Lies Beneath” And Who Cares!? – Have you ever stopped to wonder what greenery or aged building once occupied the space where a Mickey D’s currently sits, belching out its menu of compacted and processed obesity? Was there a forest or a “5 and dime”? Did someone make a home or a vocation or both in the location? In almost every case imaginable in today’s modern hysteria, A. we’ll never know because B. no one is asking the question or put differently, thinking philosophically about the question; David Warren gives it a shot.
Did The Makers of Jurassic World Just Go Carmelite & Choose Life Over Lesbians? – The word on the street is that there was a lesbionic smooch fest in the new Jurassic World film, out today, that was edited out, and has drawn the ire of the usual suspects at Mashable. Maybe, just maybe, dinosaurs eat lesbian flesh the same way they eat flesh in a state of grace with the exception being the sinful flesh tastes like diseased frog and the graceful flesh like organic chicken |*satire*|.
The Parents of Alfie Evans’s Are About To Confirm What We already Know – The Cult of Death claimed the life of baby Alfie Evans, this we already know. What we don’t know are the details; details I told you Alfie’s parents know but were sworn to secrecy to protect the Industry of Death. The Evans’ now say they will reveal all, something I’ll believe when I see/hear it. If they have life insurance policies, they better make sure they are current.
The Demons Are Ascendent And They’ve Come For The Priests – “Gird your loins”. Joe Biden once said this when he was running for the Dumbocrat nomination against John Kerry in 2004. Biden was referring to the impending failure that was to be called the “troop surge” but easy Joe’s warning can just as easily be applied to the Catholic Church of today of which he is a member. The Church is poised for the greatest embarrassments and humiliations she has ever see and the near certain conviction of Cardinal McCarick is just the tip of the spear. McCarick is accused of career spanning acts of homosexual perversions, so prolific, GLAAD can make him a poster star. It must be stated that it was Saint John Paul II who made this deeply troubled man a Cardinal and there’s every reason to suspect that McCarick isn’t the last “shoe to drop”. What are the faithful to do while embroiled in this widening sea of what will become incriminations “why are you still a member of that church that has so many perverts as….” as if the Church Militant can just be shuttered because a prelate, who was now, obviously, not a true member, has been revealed as an unrepentant victim of The Fall!? Pray the Rosary with The CRUSADER Knights, that’s what. Then there’s this: Rod Dreher knew of this scandal for years!
Why You Need To Listen To The Pearcing Truth’s Series On Economics As If Families Mattered – The Federalist headline screams the current state of our civil, “economic” affairs. Yo, Big Business: Money Doesn’t Give You A Right To Manipulate Politics. It doesn’t? Then are you ready to begin implementing a system of Distributism, solidarity and subsidiarity? While ‘Murican Government has become the national religion, business and the exchange of money for pleasure and profit have become her powerful parishioners. Since we rarely know the people who grow or make our food or anything else for that matter, business has become a ubiquitous, requisite agent for exchange of what we want, mildly tempered by what we are willing to borrow to get it. Micro systems of barter exchange are gone, save for the rare entities that have carved out niche markets serving the locals, folks we used to call friends and neighbors. My ongoing feature series with the author of Small Is Still Beautiful, Joseph Pearce, delves heavily into this subject and is MUST LISTENING for anyone truly interested in avoiding Amazon et al from controlling the food supply and thus what is acceptable, secular behavior to get it. Download all 4 Episodes here.
The book’s stories are harrowing from the point of view that bodies and lives are being physically altered with no chance of repair. This is being done, allegedly, to bring about a more fairer world in which those born into the bodies of the sex they believe is not for them. But what is fair about having your breasts cut off while being doped up with drugs that get you banned from any professional sport? This is the work of Beazelbub and the boys and the poor souls who undergo these mutilations are the prizes.
The Religion That ‘Murican Politics Has Become – When Donald Trump as President, shows up at a rally to commemorate or promote something, the event takes on a religious tone; think about it. Before the President – the priest – enters the temple – the speaking stage – prayers are recited in unison – the Pledge of Allegiance – then an opening canticle is chanted – the National Anthem – then the priest makes his procession to the altar – the dais with the holy crest of the office of the President – then the priest begins “the mass” – making the political pronouncement and explaining why it is good for the congregation. When “the mass” is finished, the choir strikes up a driving beat of a “patriotic song” which serves as the post communion hymn and then the congregation takes leave to go and evangelize the gospel they just took in to unwashed masses – let the conversions begin! Michael Davis writes of this and makes the proper conclusion: All Politics Is Religion.
“Movement conservatism, meanwhile, is a kind of Protestantism. The Constitution fills the role of the Bible. It is immutable, if not infallible, and we must hold it, as Hamilton said, in “sacred reverence.” Like Protestantism, this conservatism defines itself by what it isn’t—monarchism, socialism, etc.—just as Protestantism is a blanket term for those Christian sects that arose in opposition to the Catholic Church. Jefferson and Adams are like Calvin and Luther: united by a common enemy more than a common creed.”
Armed with my description of a ‘Murican “Conservative Church” service, next time you see this transpire on Fox News and the propagandists for the faith wait breathlessly for the priest to arrive and mass begin, see if my description above is correct and if it is, know then what the takeaway is: The Faith has been replaced in most ‘Murican’s daily lives by the faith (sans caps intentional) in ‘Murica.
It’s July 2018 And The Immodesty Is About To Go Nuclear Because It WENT Nuclear – Venerable Bishop Sheen called out ‘Muricah back in the 1960’s while speaking to a group of young Catholics on “Youth and Sex”: “8:15 in the morning, the 6th of August, 1945, when we flew a military plane over this city, when we dropped that atomic bomb on it; that bomb on blotted out boundaries. There was no longer a boundary between the military and the civilian, between the helper and the helped, between the wounded and the nurse and the doctor, between the living and the dead. For even the living who escaped the bomb were already half dead. So we broke down boundaries and limits and from that time on the world has said we want no one limiting me. … You want no restraint, no boundaries, no limits. I have to do what I want to do. Now let’s analyze that for a moment, is that happiness?”

The Tragedy of Post Christian, Philosophia Perennis Devoid Thinking – Read this piece from AmConMag writer Noah Millman to get a closeup view of why Philosophia Perennis is so desperately needed to corral the erroneous thinking Men are sure to engage in when NOT grounded in the eternal quest for True Wisdom i.s. Sapientia. The issue Noah, is not whether “only the Saints” can live by the Magisterial code, it is that by God’s Grace the Saints DID live the Tradition WHILE receiving the Graces needed to do so. You cannot approach Grace as zero sum, mathematics, as in if I do ______ I will receive ______ “Grace credits” but if I do ______I will have deducted ______ Grace Credits. Grace is present in the world and we are given the supply needed at Baptism, the suffering of the Christian Faithful is simply to maintain the state you enter at Baptism, using the Gospels and the Traditional Teaching as MEANS to that END. As Padré Gaetano tells us in Humility of Heart: “And has not a saint abundant reasons, from the thought of his own weakness, to live always in a state of great humility, when he knows that from one hour to another he may lose the grace of God and the kingdom of heaven which he has merited by years of laboriously-acquired virtues? “Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.”
