Amoris Laetitia, the Cardinals, and this missing word

Way back last April, on my 2nd reading of Amoris Laetitia, I had the idea to try to find out what the simple message of the document was, by using word frequency tables and generating a Word Cloud:

Church Family Can Love Life. That simple phrase, I believe, sums up what Pope Francis was really trying to say with Amoris Laetitia. But as in any family, the devil lies in trying to communicate, communicate a Truth much larger than just our human love- the Truth of Christ. The Truth of Christ doesn't always feel good. It is not the easy way out.
Mercy can't be allowed to destroy justice.
Four Prophets who claim that due to errornous interpretations of Amoris Laetitia, confusion has been created. Four Prophets who say that with Chapter 8 of Amoris Laetitia, in certain diocese and certain countries in the world, Mercy has been allowed to destroy Justice, and that Error has overcome Truth.
I do not know the answers to the Dubia. I do know that by refusing to answer the Dubia, Pope Francis is giving the impression that he *agrees with the error* rather than wishes to teach the Truth and bring Justice to those harmed by the sin of divorce and the scandal of remarriage.
I've been told I'm being a Pharisee to even question this. Yet question it I did last April, long before the Dubia. Last April is when I noticed tht the words Confession, Repentance, Absolution, and Penance were mising from this document.
They are somewhat replaced with the more liberal, post Vatican II words of Reconciliation, Sacrifice, Justice and Injustice. These concepts DO exist in Amoris Laetitia.
And that is why there is NO good reason for the Pope not to answer the Dubia, not to clear up the confustion. Amoris Laetitia may not use the traditional words. Amoris Laetitia may have even been intended, by this Jesuit Pope, to groom the world for a day when the liberal form of clerical abuse will be rampant. But the Holy Spirit is stronger than the Pope.
And in the end, Church Family Can Love Life- but only if we are honest about divorce being a sin. Only if we are honest that our sins, no matter how minor or venial, harm not only our relationship with God, but also our relationship with each other.

The smug style of American Liberalism

I've noticed this for years, that American intellectualism has a major blind spot.  Those ivory towers have become fortresses; people who don't know where their food comes from try to dictate to everybody else how to live.

I'm shocked

Trump is President, but the real story is that rural and blue collar voters came out in record numbers.  May he live to be inaugurated.  Perhaps the Secret Service should contact the surviving police in Mexico to see how to protect him against MS-13.

Locally, anybody vote for Kate Brown AND Dennis Richardson?  Somebody must have.  This is a hole in my mercy I need to fill.

Just in time for Halloween

AIDS virus linked to New York City Promiscuous Culture, not just homosexual but also heterosexual.  Made the jump to San Francisco in 1976.

The same report traces it back further to Haiti and Africa in the 1960s, and the jump from apes to humans in Africa in the early 20th century.  But illicit sex and drug use has *always* been the primary transmission method, aberosexuality of any type is evil.

Been a busy month

New jobs always mean less blog postings from me.

But the Podestra e-mail dump from wikileaks proves two things:
1.  The Democratic party has become irredeemably anti-Catholic.
2.  The Republican party has been attacked by a mole, a Democrat, whose name is Donald Trump, specifically to destroy the moral base of the Republican Party, and Donald Trump was backed in the primary by the Clinton Campaign.

I cannot stay silent about either of these turns, which has produced what I now call the Satanic States of America.
