Only a Friend named Wilma calls me Mr. Fred Flintstone

There has been another sighting of the great St. Corbinians Bear in the Catholic Monitor comment section of this post "Do Black Lives Matter & Antifa have a Pedophile Problem?":

Frank, you are a machine!

Good article. I split my day between an ephemeris article and novel writing. The first got really edgy. I set it aside for clarity’s sake, but it deals with some of the same issues. Let’s face it. We don’t have a Gulag Archipelago, but we do have a Blue Archipelago of urban moral sinkholes where gang violence is fueled by drugs from Mexico. The concept of fatherhood was exactly what I wanted to touch on. If there is a way to save cities, that’s the key. Many urban black people look around them and see failed cities. In East St. Louis (which made the roll of northern “cages” in Randy Newman’s 1974 song Rednecks on his excellent and perceptive album Good Ol Boys) I always noticed a tree growing from the roof of an abandoned building of maybe eight or ten stories when I would go to federal court there.. It looks like that show After Man.

Personally, I believe BLM is a huge tactical error. As we say in trial courts, it “opened the door” for a frank and open discussion of race in America. I have compassion for people trapped in decaying, hopeless cities. I wish they could realize that Democrats only want their votes and their lives never get better. Not even under two terms of a black president. I understand the frustration, but also that it is hard to put myself in their place. I just don’t see hope for change, though. BLM just further marginalizes that segment.

But today I read Pope Gregory XVI’s Mirari Vos encyclical and realized it was an anti-U.S. Constitution. This country was founded by Masons and Freethinkers on Indifferentism, which leads to Godlessness in practice. They coupled that with a mania for more “freedom” than most people can handle. And here we are. America may be great, but it is not good.

There was far more, a fine old rant, but I exceeded my character count.

Fred. That’s what I get for posting at 2 a.m.

Bear,

Your rants, as always, are full of wisdom. My greatest wish for Blacks who I grew up with in my Latino neighborhood is that they would read their greatest living scholar Thomas Sowell.

I think Gregory explains both the problem with the U.S. and the Church since Vatican II: if "freedom" as the serpent convinced Eve is more important than God then everything sooner or later falls apart.

Don't worry. For some reason everyone wants to call me Frank. Only a friend named Wilma calls me Mr. Fred Flintstone.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pray an Our Father now that God gives President Trump the grace to do His will in this present COVID hysteria crisis and to be reelected.

Alan Keyes, Mr. Flintstone. I've got nothing against Thomas Sowell, but I still say Alan Keyes. (Wait, I'm not Wilma, so maybe I ought to call you "Sheriff Fred.")

Justina,

I totally agree with you on the brilliant Catholic Alan Keyes. I would says both need to be read by everyone not just Blacks. But in the current BLM nonsense, I think that Sowell's book on Black Rednecks is the pressing need.

BTW, don't forget that, I think, today is:

St. Frederick's Feast Day:

St. Frederick, grandson of King Radbon of the Frisians, was educated by the clergy of the church of Utrecht, and later became a priest known for his great piety and learning. He was placed in charge of instructing catechumens and was eventually elected Bishop of Utrecht around the year 825.

Today may be the day when all the Freds of the world unite to overcome their oppressors.

I didn't forget! (about Saint Fred--Happy Feast). Have you ever read Dr. Keyes' book, "Masters of the Dream"? Spot on--then, now, and always.

I think I may have it. It will be on my to read list. Thanks and Happy St. Fred's day to you even though your not a Fred, Frederick, Federcio or Fredericka.

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

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
