Brian Bethune?

So you don’t believe there is an anti-Christian agenda in Canada?  So how about a cover headline from 3 years years ago in Mcleans Magazine, THE “flagship” of Canadian “Journalism”.

Here I found an article by someone claiming to be a journalist writing for Mcleans magazine. Funny thing though, can’t seem to find anything else about him/her anywhere.

Is he/she real? Is he a nom du plume? Is he a paid shill for progressive shadow players? Who knows. I guess one has to live in Toronto to get a clue, eh? Interesting reading, though, for any central Canadian “Brights”, those leading, bleeding edges of secular Progressivism in this country who just can’t seem to stop recycling these old stories debunking Christian beliefs … and why Christians?

Maybe because they know that Christians won’t shoot them or blow them up, or burn them alive, or stone them in the public square, or drown them in cages, or visit their offices for a little tete-a-tete? Do you suppose those considerations don’t enter into the editor’s thoughts when considering provocative material to publish … how about some equal coverage for the other monotheistic religions, eh, Mcleans?

How about it, Brian Bethune?  I completely understand, and even sympathize somewhat, with your bread and butter being the provocation of the target audience du jour as vetted by your editors. That is “journalism’s” function, after all, as one thinks about the traditional Broadsheets of yore, they exist to stir things up and see what new smells rise to the top.

In a quaint way, I guess I am a throwback, but I just happen to believe that justice requires treating all players “equally” and “fairly”. These are supposed to be THE Canadian values, right?  So how about it? Are you going to leave it all up to French Journalists like those at Charlie Hebdo? Would this be too much to ask of Canada’s “National” magazine? The French Surrender Taint runs deep in Canada  so shouldn’t Canadian “journalists” show at least the courage of their Froggie cousins across the pond? Naah … I guess when the rubber hits the road Canadian journalists and their masters would rather duck and cover and put their butts in the air.

From the front page article in question:

There is a twist in the tale, though, and frailty of human memory turned out to be more profound than Ehrman suspected or, perhaps, welcomed. His eye-opening “Jesus Before the Gospels: How the Earliest Christians Remembered, Changed, and Invented Their Stories of the Savior”  may prove most useful for those who hold to a position Ehrman finds more wrong-headed than insistence on the Bible’s literal truth. The reason Biblical historians cannot find even the outline of a historical Jesus, argues an increasingly persuasive chorus of challengers, is that there is nothing to find: Jesus Christ never lived at all.” 

Of course, does it need to be mentioned that Bart Denton Ehrman (born October 5, 1955) has made a hugely successful career out of “proving” that Jesus Christ never existed. and he is one of the darlings of the Progressive Pantheon … for agnostics and atheists (really the same thing) he “walks on water” no wait a minute, that was someone else wasn’t it?

OMG!!!! WHO KNEW?  Gee, Brian, or whoever you are, good thing for Mcleans and their staffers that they have an atheist anti-christian scholar with the street cred of Bart Denton Ehrman  to do all the heavy lifting for them. It’s pretty damned certain that he is several standard deviations above the average intelligence level of the “journalists” at our flagship Canadian fish-wrap.

It is also a very damned good thing for the Mcleans editorial offices that Christians don’t exercise the same policy prerogatives as Islamics. Yup, sure a good thing, that the Christians are the real deal when it comes to the “Religion of Peace”. Love your enemies, turn the other cheek, Father forgive them, they know not what they do. Yup, a real good thing.

Seriously? 2000 or so years on and still they strive stridently to proclaim “There is no God, Christ is a lie!” Even the Roman Empire failed to deny Christ and this country, for all it’s jingoistic bombast trying to ape the American colossus to the south or desperately denying any connection, depending on the party currently in occupation, is but a pale sickly shadow of that famous empire, filled with pale imitations of men called “managers”.

Strawman

Joe?

Anyway, here’s some gratuitous “Ad Hominum” in the spirit of “tit-for-tat”. That’s a really interesting article, Brian. Your bio picture is one of 50 shades of grey haired tired compromise, your soul pawned to the highest bidder and that final personal reckoning coming ever closer regardless of your desperate tap-dancing.

Is that really even a picture of you or is it some special effect photo-shopped in the studio you work in, some “Resident-Evil” twist of zeros and ones. Whatever it is, it’s a good job, well rendered, a kind of brooding dignity in the greying eminence of your brow, the eyes fixed upon the viewer with unwavering judgement. So much more dignified than my own effort to the left.

I wonder what kind of twist the tale of the “Life of Brian” would take if he were to seriously suggest that “Mohammad never lived at all”.

Com’on Brian, how about it, aren’t you still wearing your “Je Suis Charlie” T-Shirt in the copy room these days? Nahh, I didn’t think so. That’s just so “yesterday” right? And who reads Mcleans outside of Toronto anyway? Yea, Toronto, … a pretty safe beat for beating up Christians and Albertans if I do say so.

Cool courage doesn’t get any cooler than this, that one give up his latte to make his deadline. But Islam, … Islam, … that gives you chills now doesn’t it? Islam might reach right into your comfortable inner city Toronto digs and share their pain. Islam, the sibilant sssss just before the sudden ssslam! Yessssss chills. It tickles my dark side, my prescioussss. You just have to respect their commitment to their truth even if you disagree with their methods.

inspiration-cslewisquoteThe Islamics would even agree with Lewis’s quote (right), and their belief has teeth! Only a believer could hope to understand another believer. The secular progressives in the high towers today have no clue and even less hope.

So how about “In your country, Venerable Brethren, voices are swelling into a chorus urging people to leave the Church, and among the leaders there is more than one whose official position is intended to create the impression that this infidelity to Christ the King constitutes a signal and meritorious act of loyalty to the modern State.

Secret and open measures of intimidation, the threat of economic and civic disabilities, bear on the loyalty of certain classes of Catholic functionaries, a pressure which violates every human right and dignity. ”  para 21, Mit Brennender Sorge

and

It is on faith in God, preserved pure and stainless, that man’s morality is based. All efforts to remove from under morality and the moral order the granite foundation of faith and to substitute for it the shifting sands of human regulations, sooner or later lead these individuals or societies to moral degradation. The fool who has said in his heart “there is no God” goes straight to moral corruption (Psalms xiii. 1), and the number of these fools who today are out to sever morality from religion, is legion.”para 29, Mit Brennender Sorge

Mulcair_810_500_55_s_c1What about this article from four years ago – Gee!  Who knew? :  “NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario, September 9, 2015 (LifeSiteNews)New Democrat federal leader Thomas Mulcair was defending his senior communications director after he hit the national spotlight yesterday when two-year-old tweets surfaced in which he viciously attacked the Catholic Church, the pope, and Catholic moral teachings.” and these are the same people who have been running Alberta for the last four years!  Questions anyone?  Guess who has been writing government policy and guidelines in Alberta?  Anyone? Anyone? Will Jason change anything now that he has “power” or will he just quietly let it ride as has happened so often in the past and spend his time sabre rattling about pipelines and Federal policy disputes? My money is on “let it ride”.

But “They either do not see or refuse to see that the banishment of confessional Christianity, i.e., the clear and precise notion of Christianity, from teaching and education, from the organization of social and political life, spells spiritual spoliation and degradation. …  To hand over the moral law to man’s subjective opinion, which changes with the times, instead of anchoring it in the holy will of the eternal God and His commandments, is to open wide every door to the forces of destruction.

The resulting dereliction of the eternal principles of an objective morality, which educates conscience and ennobles every department and organization of life, is a sin against the destiny of a nation, a sin whose bitter fruit will poison future generations.” para 29, Mit Brennender Sorge

and

” … Human laws in flagrant contradiction with the natural law are vitiated with a taint which no force, no power can mend. In the light of this principle one must judge the axiom, that “right is common utility,” a proposition which may be given a correct significance, it means that what is morally indefensible, can never contribute to the good of the people. But ancient paganism acknowledged that the axiom, to be entirely true, must be reversed and be made to say: “Nothing can be useful, if it is not at the same time morally good” (Cicero, De Off. ii. 30). … ” para 30, Mit Brennender Sorge

Spark's Street

Spark’s Street? North American capital of Murder Inc.? Or is this somewhere in the dark night of Mordor east of the pond and the channel?

It has been 13 years since the Netherlands became the first country to legalize euthanasia. In that time, the practice has become legal in Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and in five U.S. states (Washington, Oregon, Vermont, Montana, and New Mexico). At the time I said “It’s coming to Canada too, but Canada always lags the Dutch by about ten years”. Because “managers” always want to cover their backsides, don’t rush things, wait ’til the public are “ready” to legalize killing inconvenient grownups eh?

In the first week of February 2016, Canada joined the growing pack, pretty much on schedule for that range of prognostication. Jackals scrounging the scraps left by the Hyenas, except perhaps we are giving Jackals and Hyenas a bad rap here, for they are only fulfilling their proper function in the Divine plan while our masters deny the Divine and have set themselves up as little tin gods unto themselves to run our lives for their own benefit in ever more granular regulations piled upon regulations like the Scribes and Pharisees of old.

In a previous post I linked to David Warren posting this: “the Ottawa government’s impending “euthanasia” legislation. This our parliament was ordered to write and pass by Canada’s supreme court: a junta of nine who are a law unto themselves. The parliamentary committee discussing the matter, now dominated by the liberal party, has made recommendations such as forcing all doctors and other medical staff to participate in the killings; and arranging for children and the mentally ill to be terminated on the advice of one “care giver” or another. It is a monstrous, unambiguously evil measure they are contemplating — which, like abortion, targets the defenseless”.

Aki, Inner Thoughts, Rodrigo Rodriguez

Although the new ruling states that all patients in Canada are entitled to a physician-assisted suicide, their condition must meet certain criteria for them to eligible. For example, the law (yet unwritten) states that “patients must be of adult age and must be assessed by a doctor to be mentally competent and capable of giving consent“, Common Dreams reported.

How can “Common Dreams” report on laws which have yet to be written or enacted or on regulations yet to be written and implemented? This statement just serves to give cover to the faceless ones while they work their evil.

Cheers

OnTheRock8I’ll end this post with a reference to one of Mark Mallet’s blog posts from March 2012.

Here We Stand … Hae nobis propriae sedes

“Waiting On The Night To Fall”, by “Casting Crowns”, from the album “Thrive” (2014)

Yes indeed … waiting on the night to fall … and it is falling, isn’t it?  I have a small selection of Web blogs which I read regularly, at least weekly and I am going to share links here because I have found these writers helpful in my own quest … expressing other insights into the same questions and helping me avoid “scope creep” in my own quest.

Letter of Most Reverend Mark A. Hagemoen, April 17th, 2018

Letter of Most Reverend Mark A. Hagemoen, April 17th, 2018

The first one (on the list that is, not necessarily in importance) is the Canadian blogger Mark Mallett and his blog “The Now Word, Reflections on Our Times”.   Mark Mallett, a one time TV reporter, is a Roman Catholic singer/songwriter and missionary. He has performed and preached throughout North America and abroad.

The messages posted on Mark’s website are the fruit of prayer and ministry. Mark is very current and he doesn’t pull any punches, but his views are charitable and restrained with respect to the human players. He sets my bar when it comes to “Fraternal Charity” and I often write something in my own posts and then after reading what Mark has to say I edit or rewrite what I have written about the event in question.

Any postings on Mark’s site which contain elements of “private revelation” have been subjected to the discernment of Mark’s spiritual director. I included a letter from his Bishop (image on the right) which he posted on his blog-site on the “about Mark” page.  For a recent example of his work, Mark writes on Robert Cardinal Sarah’s interview with The Catholic Herald:

CARDINAL Sarah has given a stunning, perceptive and prescient interview in the Catholic Herald today. It not only repeats “the now word” in terms of the warning that I have been compelled to speak for over a decade, but most especially and importantly, the solutions. Here are some of the key thoughts from Cardinal Sarah’s interview along with links for new readers to some of my writings that parallel and expand his observations”.

*****

Father John HunwickThe second Blog-site which I follow regularly is that of the British blogger Fr. John Hunwicke, titled Fr. Hunwicke’s Mutual Enrichment”   Father Hunwicke was for nearly three decades at Lancing College; where he taught Latin and Greek language and literature, was Head of Theology, and Assistant Chaplain. He has served three curacies, been a Parish Priest, and Senior Research Fellow at Pusey House in Oxford. Since 2011, he has been in full communion with the See of S Peter.

Fr. Hunwicke asserts: The opinions expressed on this Blog are not asserted as being those of the Magisterium of the Church, but as the writer’s opinions as a private individual. Nevertheless, the writer strives, hopes, and prays that the views he expresses are conformable with and supportive of the Magisterium. In this blog, the letters PF stand for Pope Francis. On this blog, ‘Argumentum ad hominem’ refers solely to the Lockean definition, “Pressing a man with the consequences of his own concessions“.

Fr. John has a deep (and sometimes obscure) interest and expertise in “old” liturgical rites and prayers, pre-Vatican II Catholic and Anglican liturgical practices and also a very current and even humourous eye for the goings on in the “modern Roman Curia, The Church of England Hierarchy, and the Catholic and Anglican church at large”.  I appreciate greatly his restraint, and at the same time his dry humour, irony and even satirical observations. He helps me to stay focused, restrained, and to practice “fraternal charity”, when confronted with some of the more egregious “missteps” of our current batch of Curial managers in Rome and in the rest of the Catholic world.

*****

Third, there is the American blogger Fr. John Zuhlsdorf, writing at “Fr. Z’s Blog“, formerly entitled: “What Does The Prayer Really Say?” – Clear, straight commentary on Catholic issues, liturgy and life by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf o{]:¬)    In Fr. Z’s own words: “This blog is like a fusion of the Baroque ‘salon’ with its well-tuned harpsichord around which polite society gathered for entertainment and edification and, on the other hand, a Wild West “saloon” with its out-of-tune piano and swinging doors, where everyone has a gun and something to say. Nevertheless, we try to point our discussions back to what it is to be Catholic in this increasingly difficult age, to love God, and how to get to heaven.” – Fr. Z

I don’t really have any images for Fr. Z. so I guess I will just include an excerpt from a recent post “The Internet Prayer” which I enjoyed:  “… Meanwhile, here is the English (version).  A prayer before logging onto the internet:

Almighty and eternal God, who created us in Thine image and bade us to seek after all that is good, true and beautiful, especially in the divine person of Thine Only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, that, through the intercession of Saint Isidore, Bishop and Doctor, during our journeys through the internet we will direct our hands and eyes only to that which is pleasing to Thee and treat with charity and patience all those souls whom we encounter. Through Christ our Lord.   Amen.

(and) Finally, I’m still waiting for an improved version in Klingon.”

And just for good measure another post on cooking and “traditional” recipes:  “Lately, Sundays have found me in the kitchen making something interesting… to me, at least. 

Yesterday I had a hankerin’ for Ragù alla bolognese.  When I say “ragù” I don’t mean something in a jar!  Ragù alla bolognese is a classic from one of the truly amazing foodie regions of Italy – and that’s saying a lot – Emilia-Romagna and, so they say, Bologna in particular. 

The denizens of Bologna, as a matter of fact, have codified the “official” recipe via their chamber of commerce.   You can use this ragù (French ragoût from ragoûter… “revive flavor”) directly on various shapes of pasta or as a layer with lasagne.   Broad, flat noodles, such as tagliatelle and pappardelle are great.  I used the latter, dried.  I was a too lazy to make fresh. This sauce is easy to make, but you need patience and time.”

David Warren

Fourth and last, for today, but by no means least, is the Canadian blogger David Warren. He posts 4 or 5 times a week, a slightly less charitable view of the world than the above three, but no less elegant in his own way.

Because David is closer to my heart, I actually have his site as my default Home Page on my browser so the first thing I see each day when I log on is whatever new words of wisdom and repartee David has seen fit to share with the world.

Irony and Satire figure in many of his posts both on his own site at “Essays in Idleness, but also he aims for a broader audience with his occasional op ed pieces on “The Catholic Thing“. There are many other writers of worthy articles in the archives at “The Catholic Thing”.

Back in 2015, over at David Warren’s site Essays in Idleness we found “Hae nobis propriae sedes” Virgil, Aeneid 3 147-149,  in English I think it is something like “This Will Be Our Proper Place“, according to Google Translate, but I’m no scholar so I may have missed the mark on that. Anyway, David is a beautiful writer and I enjoy his insight. Here is an old post in full from October 2015, or better yet, just go and read his stuff at his own site, it would certainly be worth one’s time.

Hae nobis propriae sedes

If the Viking priests from the age of the Orkneyinga Saga Orkneyinga Saga(composed eight centuries ago, about matters through centuries before it), returned suddenly to their old haunt on Papa Stronsay, they would have lively conversation with the current inhabitants. As they could not speak English, nor these new monks Old Norse, the chatter would be in Latin. The Mass they would celebrate together would also be in Latin, of course, and the Vikings would have no difficulty in following it. For it was their Mass, too.

The gentle reader who does not already know about the Transalpine Redemptorist presence in Orkney may inform himself (here, and perhaps also, here). For it is more than the “romantic story,” of a genuinely counter-cultural adventure. In some sense one might say that the living centre of the Catholic Church is now more on that bleak, and beautiful island of Papa Stronsay, than in the heart of today’s pagan Rome. This seems especially so in light of the recent Synod; as to me, after reading the current pope’s latest remarks at the conclusion of it — full of his characteristic slights and insults towards traditional practitioners of the Catholic faith.

I know that many faithful are hurting, or quite understandably angry; that they feel violated and betrayed. That is why I am writing like this, reminding that Christ will bind wounds; that He will not betray us. Christ goes where He is wanted, and under present circumstances that is far, far away, “to the peripheries” — or rather, let us cut the cheap sociological blather and say, “to the ends of the Earth.” He is in love with the bright-eyed peoples of Africa; and with those suffering under murderous tyrannies in Asia and the Middle East. By contrast in Europe, and here in the Americas, in our life of fat and consumption, we now have little use for Him; and so He leaves us to find our own way, progressively, downward.

Yet in many rural and remote places, and even sometimes in little neighbourhoods within the huge, fraught cities of these once-Christian realms, His Church is flourishing. The numbers may be tiny in proportion to the general population, but wherever that old Latin Mass is sung, there are vocations, and there is revival. Where it is not, the Church is dying out; and yet here, too, where the Mass of the Ages, and through it the teaching of the ages, is no longer made available, individual novus-ordo Christians still wait and humbly pray for relief.

Christ is there, forever in the Eucharist; and wherever it is taken by the shriven with real faith and the childlike understanding, the power of the Redemption is felt. (And where it is taken by appropriation, unworthily “by right,” the power of Judgement is visited instead.) He is present in the sincerity of all private prayer and petitions, extending from that Mass, and every good and virtuous deed, done in the communion of the Saints. Christ is crucified, dead, and risen; He is alive. Try as they will, His detractors will ever fail to kill Him.

This is simply how things are, and how they always were and will be. Within every cell of the true Church is the relation between that small Christian soul, and this Tremendous Lover. (See here.)

We have often before been abandoned by priests and bishops, with their own private agendas, or strutting their fake “humility” for the adulation of crowds. We have had bad popes; we have had every sin of which men are capable, done in sacred places. This is the world, and this is what men are: fallen. Let them seek forgiveness, and pick themselves up; do what they can to rectify the damage they have caused, the pain they have gratuitously inflicted. Let them open their eyes before Our Lord closes them forever. It makes no sense to choose the road to Hell.

There is nothing new under the Sun, and I see that Saint Peter Damian’s Liber Gommorrhianus, or “Book of Gomorrah,” from ten centuries ago, is once again circulating, in English translation. (Can be ordered here.) It is from another age, when clerical corruption, including rampant sodomy and pederasty, was threatening the integrity of holy orders. Damian was an ascetic, at home in the remote Italian hills, but as I recall from a previous translation of this book, he can be unpleasantly modern in his forensic descriptions of what priests and monks descend to, when they become depraved.

He turns, with a form of mercy that is excoriating, upon the most common crime: then as now, the satanic tampering with adolescent boys. He provides, too, the context for this corruption, through cross-allusion to simony and careerist self-advancement (his Liber Gommorrhianus ought ideally to be read alongside his Liber Gratissimus) — directing fearless, full-bore attacks on the princes of the Church who make themselves comfortable, and hide the crimes. The book made its author extremely unpopular, and the defence of him, by Pope Leo IX, though brave at first, became increasingly lukewarm. But the scandals it exposed were quietly acknowledged and gradually addressed. The shame that this saint had helped to reawaken slowly triumphed over the filth of this eleventh-century liberalism.

This is not the whole story of Petrus Damiani, some of whose miscellaneous writings on the spiritual and contemplative life are also known to me through the excellent translations of Patricia McNulty (1959, here). These are precious, very positive works, curiously contemporary with that saga of conversion in the northern wilds. This lonely Benedictine would likewise be at home with those monks on Papa Stronsay, so far away from him in space and time.

It was beloved Benedict XVI, incidentally, who through his motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum, brought the Transalpine Redemptorists back into full communion with Holy Church. They were a product of the SSPX reaction against the liberal innovations that followed from Vatican II, and the account of their relations with Rome is complex and often vexed. So it must be in a generation when the Vatican bureaucracy is more easily alarmed and scandalized by the persistently faithful, than by the faithless and glib. But that generation is already passing into ashes.

Our task is to keep our moorings in the true and unchanging Magisterium, clinging, as it were, “to our guns and our Bibles,” or to distant treeless islands as the case may be. For wherever Christ is — however cold, windy, and wet — we are at home in the breast of Our Saviour.”

Pen as Sword - Social Commentary, The Inner Struggle

Christ and Antichrist … (part 3)

Mankind is ready to embrace anything which does not interfere with their comfortable lives – any force outside themselves which helps them to realize their thoughts and dreams of peace and harmony on earth.

Mankind spouts a never ending vomiting of platitudes about a world of tolerance, love, and goodwill, without any personal cost to themselves or responsibility for anything, and all the while we live with closed eyes and calming thoughts of “I’m OK, Your OK”, in the midst of the most intolerant, violent, murderous human culture in history.

But, hey, no guilt, no fear, believe anything, do anything … it’s just different opinions. This is the spirit of the mystical body of Satan.

Waiting On The Night To Fall”, by “Casting Crowns”, from the album “Thrive” (2014)

This is such a great tune, here are the lyrics:

Lyrics
There’s an old man living in the back of your woods tonight
You forgot he was even there, but you’ve never slipped his mind
He’s living off of scraps of you you never knew you left behind
And as the sun goes down, he rises with a smile
He’s waiting on the night to fall
The old man’s coming to call
But you don’t see the writing on the wall
He’ll never step out in the light
No, he’s just biding time
And while you slumber, he’s gonna come and take it all
He’s waiting on the night to fall
He’s waiting on the night to fall
He knows you have the answers, but truth lies dusty on your shelf
And the sword that you could slay him with has become an ornament and nothing else
You could put him back down in his hole in the ground, but he knows you never will
He’s been around so long you got used to the smell
He’s waiting on the night to fall
The old man’s coming to call
But you don’t see the writing on the wall
He’ll never step out in the light
No, he’s just biding his time
And as you slumber, he’s gonna come and take it all
He’s waiting on the night to fall
He’s waiting on the night to fall
He knows he’ll never have your soul
But he will gladly rob you blind
While you’re feasting at his table, he’ll tie your hands and numb your mind
He’ll take you farther than you wanna go
He’ll keep you longer than you wanna stay
And it will cost you more than you ever thought you’d pay
He’s waiting on the night to fall
The old man’s coming to call
But you don’t see the writing on the wall
He’ll never step out in the light
No, he’s just biding his time
And as you slumber, he’s gonna come and take it all
He’s waiting on the night to fall
He’s waiting on the night to fall
He’s waiting on the night
He’s waiting on the night to fall
The old man’s coming to call
But you don’t see, you don’t see the writing on the wall
He’s waiting on the night
He’s waiting on the night to fall
He’s waiting on the night to fall

There are none so blind … the name of the Antichrist has been synonymous with evil for at least a couple of thousand years now. But the truth is that the majority of people now recognize no god but talent, ambition, the aim of solving the world’s problems, the belief that man alone is capable of transforming the world into a paradise of man’s own making, without God.
