Do Mad Scientists Control the World?
Dear Mr. Martinez,


One wonders why so many politicians wish to protect the kind of experiments which, just a few decades ago, would have been conducted only in horror movies featuring mad scientists. In the present instance, I refer to the proposed legislation in the United Kingdom permitting the creation of hybrid human-animal embryos.

I suppose one does not really need to wonder for very long. In our fallen state, we have a powerful thirst for total autonomy and a painless way to cheat death. It's as if someone is whispering in our ears: "You certainly will not die! No, God knows well that the moment you [do this] your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods" (Gn 3:4-5).

What one really wonders is how a serpent with a crushed head can still speak persuasively. Anyway, the Church in the UK is putting up a fight. See, among other evidence, the letter from the bishops of Scotland: Scottish Bishops' Pastoral on Human Embryo Legislation.

In league with the mad scientists is basketball coach Rick Majerus of St. Louis University, whose outspoken defense of abortion rights and stem-cell research has drawn the ire of his bishop, Raymond Burke. Sports fans don't often get this kind of story, so we're following up our previously-cited blog entry with an interview given by Archbishop Burke entitled Catholic Identity.

One more bit of gloom and doom before we turn to something brighter. I promised to say more about the Pope's final words to the Jesuits, because it is clear that Benedict is rejecting the Order's own self-assessment. That's fairly significant; I want to be sure everybody gets it: The Pope and the Jesuits: Explaining the Problem.

What's Good is Very Good

Some time ago I referred to a question and answer session between Pope Benedict and seminarians. Now the Vatican has published a similar Q&A session with priests in Rome. It enables us to witness a spontaneous demonstration of our Holy Father's pastoral care, warmth, wisdom and spiritual depth, all of which I find enormously encouraging.

See if you respond the same way: Pope Speaks with Roman Priests on Lent, Evangelization, Judgment.

"Remember when Trump was up by 600,000 votes in Pennsylvania?": A Hour which will Live in Infamy: 10:01pm November 3, 2020

  Matthew H @MattH_4America Remember when Trump was up by 600,000 votes in Pennsylvania? 1:07 PM · Jul 13, 2022 · Twitter Web App [https://twitter.com/MattH_4America/status/1547311877264400384] 10:01pm November 3, 2020, a hour which will live in infamy, the United States of America presidential electoral integrity was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the forces of the Democrat Machine and some corrupt collaborators within the Republican Party. It will be recorded that "under the pretense of COVID, executive branch officials across a number of key battleground states violated election procedures passed by the legislative branches of those states in a number of ways that opened up the process to fraud on a massive scale, never before seen in the history of this country" which makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks before. During the time before and after the attack the Democrat Machine and its corrupt collaborator

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

Alone Bishop Gracida openly proclaims "Resist!" & Actively Works towards the Removal of Francis

    "You cannot give Holy Communion to the abortionists, to the abortion promoters and providers, to the divorce and remarried. You cannot do it. St. Paul said you do not feed the Eucharist to dogs..."   "Right now they [the laity] are suffering in silence. They need to object. The laity, the sensus fidelium is that common sense among the laity who have accepted the magisterial teaching of the Church which is the foundation of their faith."     "Having accepted that when they hear something that is contradictory to the magisterial teaching of the Church, the sensus fidelium is a impulse that causes them to speak out and say no."     "That is not true. Don't say that. Stop! That is the sensus fidelium in action!"     "Not to sit and suffer in silence. That's crazy. That's weird. That's wrong. Speak up! Resist!
