Predictions from the past, the psychic Pope

Not often I repeat the extreme right wing views of Michael Voris. In many ways I see him as much as a dissenter as those he decries as heretics on the left.

But today's Vortex did have some interesting points. It helps that he referenced a Pope- all of his best stuff does- Pope Paul VI in his groundbreaking Humanae Vitae, the encyclical the first world loves to ignore, or hate.

In it Pope Paul VI made some interesting predictions of what would happen to any society that accepted and made contraception legal for the purposes of birth control:

  • An overall lowering of moral standards

  • A rise in infidelity and illegitimacy

  • The reduction of women to objects for men's pleasure

  • Government coercion in reproductive matters

  • Remember, this was written in 1968. In the United States, we have now seen all four of these predictions come to pass. Moral standards are at an all time low, and have been since the 1969 "Summer of Love" which should really have been named "The Summer of using the opposite sex for lust".

    Porn is rampant all over the internet and even on network television, so yes, we have the objectification of women.

    Infidelity is rampant, resulting in divorce- and loads of kids raised in single parent homes (my wife runs a daycare, the MAJORITY of her clients are single parents).

    And finally, with Title X under Nixon and the Obama Mandate, we now have government coercion to lower birth rates.

    Who knew that Pope Paul VI was psychic?
