A bit sour on the idea of progress

Progressivism and Catholicism are incompatible.

I have no hope left for progress. Every time somebody uses the word progress, hidden in it is "how can I hurt my neighbor today".

It is just as bad within the Church. Every time I turn around, people are using "prudence", "Pastoral", "discernment" and "conscience" in very thinly disguised excuses for abuse. I do not think we should be fooled by such claims.

Of course, part of my impression MIGHT be because I live in a state where "progress" is defined as kill the unborn and the old human beings to save the salmon and fund windmills. And that whenever I argue against the genocide of the unwanted at church, I'm sure to run across some "Jesuit trained" person who thinks homosexual rape of boys builds character and that abortion and contraception are necessary to keep those awful poor people from breeding too much.The latest expansion on the Death With Dignity act seems very undignified to me. If you have no use of your arms, the attendants can now choose to just stop feeding you. Was signed into law last week. Thus we now have two forms of euthanasia in Oregon- voluntarily chocking down 9 grams of barbiturates ground into your applesauce, or involuntarily starving to death.

Next up according to the man who wrote the latest bill: Removal of the six month terminal illness limit and requirement for depression testing for dementia patients.

So forgive me if I'm a bit sour, on the whole idea of "progress"

Ebeneezer Scrooge was a liberal!

And so are the swamp establishment RINOs who inhabit congress today!.  In the debate on the child tax credit, which is at least $20,000 too low to begin with, you can just hear Scrooge in the background arguing with the charity people:

“Are there no prisons?”“Plenty of prisons…”“And the Union workhouses.” demanded Scrooge. “Are they still in operation?”“Both very busy, sir…”“Those who are badly off must go there.”“Many can’t go there; and many would rather die.”“If they would rather die,” said Scrooge, “they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.”

This is not pro-life conservativism.  This isn't conservativism at all.  These people are liberals.

Does Modern Sexual Revolution Cause Sexual Harassment?

I've been saying this for years- the rape culture and the sexual harassment culture is one and the same.  Can't have one without the other.

Here Archbishop Sample makes the same remark:

A new start

I haven't been blogging here very much lately, because I've had a crisis of faith.  My crisis stems primarily from my own conviction that I waited too long in life to get married, and as a result, our child is an only child.  Add to that all of the talk coming from the church as of late on the permissibly of divorce, the seeming hatred of people who "breed like rabbits", the tendency of the Pontifical Academy of the sciences towards apocalyptic overpopulation predictions, and my own fears that my form of marriage may no longer fit in what is permissible for a Catholic, and I've been practically frozen.

That changes with this blog post, which ironically will be the last one on this subject for this particular blog.  A new blog will be starting soon:  The Wisdom of the Ages-Aged (this post will be updated with a link when I start that blog).  This post will serve as an outline and a reading list for my research into a new set of pre-Cana materials which I plan on releasing for free on the web, and for a very nominal cost on DVD.  My intent is to have both blog articles and vlogs related to home economics, conception, and divorce avoidance.

My real intent is to one day remove the excuse "We did not know what Catholic Marriage was" from annulment tribunals in the United States.  This should NEVER be an excuse for divorce, and never an excuse for annullment

In no specific order, the source material for this comes entirely from the following orthodox sources:

Please add in the comments anything else you think I should read, as I engage on this project in the coming year.

Prayer vs gun laws- sometimes nothing CAN make a difference

I certainly think 26 members of Southland Baptist are now Catholics, part of the Church Triumphant enjoying Heaven, having lived through the purgatory of an atheist coming into their church services and shooting everybody.  The other approximately 24 people are still living through their purgatory- wounded, mostly with bullets.

I doubt you can find a single-pro-gun NRA member who would agree that Devin Kelly, or any other former soldier dishonorably discharged for domestic violence, should have been able to own weapons.

Neither does federal law.  US Code 18.922 should have prevented this man from owning weapons, let alone pasting pictures of his weapons on his facebook page.  The ATF should have been all over this guy *YEARS* ago.

You can pass all the laws you want, but  if there is no willingness to *ENFORCE THE LAWS ALREADY ON THE  BOOKS* then you might as well pray to the flying spaghetti monster to have Scotty Beam you up- there ain't no intelligent life left down here.

New Top Graphic Says it all!

I just had to relink to today's XKCD for the top graphic for this blog.  I quite often feel that way online.
