“MIT BRENNENDER SORGE” Part Two …

“Billy – title theme”, Bob Dylan, from the soundtrack album of “Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid”, (July 1973)

It seems that some truth is just so offensive that one risks the threat of even death to mention it in “Polite Canadian Society”, topics like killing babies and seniors, or remarks about truth in relation to the Gay culture in Canada are just right off the agenda. I have had a fairly risky career in the military and the corrections service over the years and the only person to ever seriously threaten me with death was a frenzied female defender of her right to have an abortion.

In Canada, don’t go there if you value your life.  See if you can detect the PC direction of this post. Western civ has been here before many times, most recently in Europe in the 30’s and 40’s of the last century and during the prophetic “Cultural Revolution” in Mao’s China from 1966 to 1976.

On a recent visit with friends I was censured by some in the group when I remarked in the course of discussion that a certain magazine, the subject of discussion and approval in the group, was indeed a high quality media effort in terms of production values, but that it continued to be sold not because of circulation and popularity but solely because of the sexual orientation of the owners and staff of the publication and the matching sexual orientation of the senior members of the Tourism Department of that Jurisdiction which provided most of the funding grants for the publication of the magazine.

This is rather like the way the CBC continues to exist (although in their case they are “legal” as a “National Media Outlet”) because of the shared PC “values” of the broadcaster and the appropriate Canadian governmental departments in spite of abysmal viewer numbers and their loud claims to “speak for Canadians”. As Kate McMillan, over at Small Dead Animals says: “Until this moment I have been forced to listen while media and politicians alike have told me “what Canadians think”. In all that time they never once asked. This is just the voice of an ordinary Canadian yelling back at the radio – “You don’t speak for me.””

I knew of this sexual orientation connection because I knew the people in both organizations personally and had worked with some of them professionally for a few years and they were my friends, well, one of them  was a friend, and the rest were at least amicable co-workers in my department. My view of the relationship was shared by the very people with whom I was working and who were in the department and worked at the publication and who were of the same sexual persuasion as the group in question. They were and are a tight knit community and the head of the department and the owner of the publication were a couple within that community and sharing a flat in town.

In spite of my making this “insider” knowledge clear, the Judgemental Axe of the PC Police in the group fell from great heights with deadly accuracy and “corrected” me, not for any of my stated facts but rather because I dared to mention an item of political corruption linked to the Canadian Sacred Cow of Sodomy. There wasn’t any critical thought about bias and bigotry and giving grants to “relatives” in the distribution of tax payer’s dollars but only that I mentioned corruption in connection with “Gays”. I was the “homophobic” bad guy. Hmmmm.  Have you ever wondered about where “Politically Correct” came from? Check out this short article here.

This is the sad state of Canadian “values”, PC is now enshrined in our legal system and our “Charter of Rights”, but amongst the common people, the masses, there is a complete lack of understanding of the difference between “right” and “wrong” and we witness the complete bankruptcy of our society, our media and our educational systems.

We are willingly walking down a slippery slope of moral turpitude and decadence without a single whimper, like Babe’s Mommy and Daddy in the opening scenes of “Babe”, without a single objection being raised in any quarter EXCEPT the Catholic Church, which finds itself under attack for every hiccup, including the very things that are protected by PC dogma in the Canadian population. One does not dare step outside the narrow window of “permitted” discussion without risking social censure and punishment for offering up inconvenient truths.

Start there with Babe’s context to set the scene, and then examine the media reported explicit suppression of Catholic education and home schooling in Ontario under previous Ontario governments. And don’t forget “same sex marriage?” whatever that means … check out this link.  And how about this:

Austin Ruse wrote an important article in Crisis Magazine way back in January of 2016. It begins with this startling information:

Two of the great propaganda achievements of the radical homosexual movement are the now internalized beliefs that they are everywhere and they are just like us. Many propositions laid the ground work for the change in public opinion from the time homosexuality was openly mocked to today when you can get fired even for poking gentle fun. Much of the polling changes in attitudes about homosexuality are grounded not in acceptance but in this kind of fear.

But, these two—that they are everywhere and just like us—are two monumental but highly effective lies.

Polling data shows that most Americans (and Canadians) think homosexuals are far more numerous than they really are. Gallup shows that most Americans (and Canadian Liberals as well) think that 25 percent of the population is homosexual. Among those dim and dimmer millennials, it is 30 percent.

That’s right, they think something on the order of 97 million Americans, including toddlers, are homosexual. In Canada this amounts to a belief that 11,118,000 Canadians are Gay, including toddlers and babies of course. Really? Canadians believe that there are over 11 million Gays in this country, and they are just like us non Gays. This is seriously delusional and completely unsupported by any facts. It is a triumph of Liberal PC propaganda.

Not even Kinsey with his utterly debunked 10 percent thought homosexuals were so plentiful in the population. In fact, according to the best research—the Laumann study conducted out of the University of Chicago in 1994, and the recently concluded study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control—the true picture is profoundly different.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, a measly 1.8 percent of adult men and 1.4 percent of adult women identify as homosexual. This translates into a tiny 2.1 million men and 1.7 million women (in the U.S.) and 960,000 people of undetermined gender (in Canada). This is less than half the number of Methodists in the United States and in Canada, the Gay population is slightly more than half the number of Anglicans.

Because they are “everywhere,” a concomitant argument they make is that attitudes have changed because of the personal interaction people have with them. Even a casual look at the numbers would show that those would be some very busy homosexuals.

The adult population of the United States is roughly 247 million. In Canada, according to StatsCan, the adult population is approximately 27.5 million, that is sexually active adults between the ages of 20 and 79 years. In order for the “personal interaction” claim to be even remotely true, that it is personal relationships that have changed public opinion, you would have to assume that each of these 3.8 million homosexuals are out of the closet, wearing their homosexuality on their sleeves, and are best buds with 65 non-homosexuals each.  In Canada, that would mean each out of the closet homosexual must have at least 28 or 29 non-homosexual BFF’s.

Just think about that completely off the wall claim. Public attitudes have changed because American and Canadian homosexuals are absolutely best friends with between 30 and 60 non-homosexuals. Think of your best friend … why are you best friends, and think … for a moment think, about how many best friends you have, and do you even know anyone who has more than one or two absolutely best friends? How about 4 or 5 best friends …  think for a moment.  So, no, the proposition that they are everywhere is simply not true, never was, never will be. Most Americans and Canadians have hardly any meaningful interaction with homosexuals, because homosexuals only pal around with other homosexuals.

Are they like the rest of us? Certainly. They are children of God, made in his image and likeness, and deserving of their human dignity. But, in the choices they make, in their attractions and in their behavior, and in the results of both, they are profoundly different. 

Austin Ruse goes on to discuss Robert Reilly’s new book “Making Gay Okay”.

“Robert Reilly wrote a very important book—Making Gay Okay—that raised the central issue that has been ignored in the messaging of the marriage debate. The marriage debate became about what was best for children. Children certainly do deserve a mother and a father. In fact, they have a human right to know their mother and father, though death and divorce often violate this right. But we cannot deliberately choose to violate this right of theirs. All true and very effective.

Reilly argues, however, that you cannot talk about homosexuals and the changes they propose without talking about that … little thing called sodomy.  And this is how they are profoundly different from us. Accepting homosexual marriage is tacit acceptance and even moral approval that anal sex is not only acceptable but that it is comparable to sexual intercourse. … from Austin Ruse: “I will not discuss what goes into this … act which is widely and almost exclusively practiced by homosexuals and porn stars. Studies show that even homosexuals with the HIV virus still widely use this … practice.

Robert Oscar Lopez, a child of “gays” and now a child rights activist, published a blog post at English Manif a few years ago that went into long and gruesome detail about what this entails. You do not want to know how one prepares for this. It is enough to know that the anus is the body’s sewer, yet homosexuals want us to believe that using it for sexual gratification is exactly the same as intercourse.”

The whole point of sex is as the affirmation of and culmination of a relationship between two members of opposite sexes to procreate, to share in the creative power of GOD and to bring into the world children, also in the image and likeness of GOD, it’s GOD’s design, not man’s. Anything else is just a glorified hand job dressed up in a tux and pretending to be truth. It is a colossal lie, fresh from the pen of the father of lies.

(For a glimpse of Robert Oscar Lopez’s life and work ignore the “community ratings” which are the result of a hate campaign by gays to silence anyone with another view. Hop over to English Manif to get a really good in your face view of the sheer scope of the “gay” hate campaign which surrounds us everywhere.)”

orcsMeanwhile, in other news, Mordor has announced they are ending live Orc shows due to budgetary restrictions and the need to give more resources and coverage to ongoing Trump assassination attempts. PSAC demonstrations in support of their brother orcs  are scheduled for the Legislature grounds in coming months. “The economy is not the issue” leadership stated vehemently.

Back to Mit Brennender Sorge:

It is part of their sacred obligations to do whatever is in their power to enforce respect for, and obedience to, the commandments of God, as these are the necessary foundation of all private life and public morality; to see that the rights of His Divine Majesty, His name and His word be not profaned; to put a stop to the blasphemies, which, in words and pictures, are multiplying like the sands of the desert; to encounter the obstinacy and provocations of those who deny, despise and hate God …”  para 12, Mit Brennender Sorge

and

“… your priests and Faithful, who have persisted in their Christian duty and in the defense of God’s rights in the teeth of an aggressive paganism. Our gratitude, warmer still and admiring, goes out to those who, in fulfillment of their duty, have been deemed worthy of sacrifice and suffering for the love of God.” para 13, Mit Brennender Sorge.

Controversy, “Normal” and the Media …

Waiting on the Night To Fall, Casting Crowns,

lobos-vestido-de-ovejaWhat is normal? What are lies and distortions.  How about  “they are everywhere”, or “they are just like us”, or “everybody sensible  thinks like me” or “we are the majority, and we speak for “insert your group here”, or “it’s the Jews”, or “it’s the Niggers”, whatever!

And by who and how are these ways of thinking conveyed to the general population of proles? Obviously in our culture it is the media, the talking heads and anyone with a public stump, like politicians, religious figures, artists, actors, documentary makers, publishers, bloggers, and so on.

I suspect that there have been these “purveyors” of news and ideas in every time and in every culture.  The trend setters, the agents for destabilization, the gossips, the sewing circle, the pub talkers, the town crier, the broadsheet scribbler, the PTA, eh? So, for arguments sake, let’s call this group with the agenda, which they have to sell to the general population, lets just call them the “X Group”.

Unfortunately for the “Non-X” group, the percentage distribution of proclivities and passions amongst politicians, artists, the media and academia does not translate automatically or logically into the larger sample we know as the “general population”.  “Accurate to 3 percentage points 90% of the time” is not only untested but is simply an appeal to the authority of the poling agency  to hold off difficult questions. It is the adult equivalent of “My Dad Said So!”.

The larger sample is, always was, and always will be, simply “untested”, and this “inconvenient truth” is a detail which presents a type of “catch 22” to any agenda setter.  Along with a strong bias to not test further because one already has a carefully selected sample which confirms one’s desired view or meme or belief, the usual suspects, good old fear, uncertainty, and doubt, mitigate against any attempt to truly get at “truth”.

FUDFUD affects both the the purveyors of pseudo-scientific “poles” and “reports” as well as their audience, the consumers of such pseudo-scientific dreck.  It is common practice to “intentionally or unintentional” target a certain demographic or geographical area, zone, population, community, identified population, whose expected opinions will point towards supporting whatever the latest direction the poling company’s masters want to go in.

Ask any member of x group how many x people they know and they will naturally know a high percentage of x’s. That is their group. People naturally believe that what they think and see and say is what every sensible person thinks and does and says so they project their proclivities and concupiscence, their favorite passions onto the general population and proceed to the conclusion that “x” is the norm amongst the general population except for a few “stupid” outliers. Of course there are many fewer “non’x’s” among the “x” group just as there are many fewer “x’s” among the “non-x” group(s).

So regardless of one’s political or social leaning does anyone really see any lapse of truth, any escape from reality, any “bias” about the above observations? I mean, seriously, all sides routinely throw accusations of all the above observations at every other media player with a competing view, so it just MUST be true, right? But faulty thinking and false opinions matter because for good or ill those errors and lies have real consequences in the real world. Once we stop believing “Truth”, we will believe anyone and anything, to our everlasting peril and the peril of those we are responsible for guiding.

Desolation Row, Chemical Romance, from the “Watchmen” soundtrack album

One of the prevalent popular memes in our current culture of death is the “Rainbow Myth”, that “Gay is OK”, That “Gays” are just like us. I am going to quote freely from some writing by Austin Ruse at Crisis Magazine   I am linking to his work at Crisis magazine because what is bothering me about “What is normal?” and “What are lies and distortions?” of the popular “Rainbow Mythology” of current progressives which I started writing about three weeks ago, has suddenly, lately become “Up Close and Personal” in our family.

I quote Austin Ruse because it is very difficult to get any “truth” from all the usual outlets; just not politically correct dontcha know? I have found both Austin Ruse and Crisis magazine to be reliable truthful sources over the years when examining our current progressive culture.

Modern family screen-shot-2014-04-13-at-10-24-59-am1In our broad extended family, our immediate cell (our immediate family) are the only family group who still hold to “traditional Christian beliefs, values and life style”.  In other words, we are very most definitely not a “Thoroughly Modern Progressive Family”.

All the rest of our extended family are very much poster families for the “Thoroughly Modern Progressive Family” (eg. No God, totally progressive “values”, public school educated accessory kids, parents careers are more important than the progeny, same in group/clique since high school, senior “Public Servants” blah blah blah  ya all know the drill.

All thoroughly modern progressive poster families which I am, through God’s grace related to, and therefore unable to avoid the drama of the 12 year old son announcing to our Poster Family that he is “gay”. The grief, stress and angsting melodrama (which the precocious little darling wants) will now unfold around us and will surpass the whole “abortion is murdering babies” crisis which is still unfolding around us.

So on with the story about why this development is both appropriate and totally predictable given the values of the families in question. This little burp of family emotion was predicted years ago when the subject 12 year old exhibited an inordinate fascination with little girls and princesses — not what one would expect —  but rather he expressed the desire to BE a princess. Wow, couldn’t see this one coming, right? Nah, don’t worry about anything, he’ll just grow out of it. We can just ignore it and it will go away. Can’t be seen to be “homophobic”, right?

Two of the great propaganda achievements of the progressive homosexual movement are the now culturally internalized beliefs that they are everywhere and they are just like us. Many propositions laid the ground work for that huge change in public opinion from the time homosexuality was openly mocked to today when you can get fired even for poking gentle fun. Much of the polling changes in attitudes about homosexuality are grounded not in acceptance but in this kind of fear.

Well, enough for tonight, even writers have to sleep sometime which kinda gives the game away, to wit, they are not gods after all even if they thought so. I’ll continue in my next post.
