    It sure is!

  2. I agree with sixupman. I think this IS what’s coming. One thing that could perhaps be clearer about the cartoon is this: the priest is apparently being charged with QUOTING Romans 1, 26-27, because the authorities define that passage as “hate speech.” (In the Knox translation, these verses read: “[A]nd, in return, God abandoned them to passions which brought dishonour to themselves. Their women exchanged natural for unnatural intercourse; and the men, on their side, giving up natural intercourse with women, were burnt up with desire for each other; men practising vileness with their fellow men. Thus they have received a fitting retribution for their false belief.”)

    Sadly, I have never heard this passage read from any pulpit, Catholic or otherwise, in all of my life; so the threat of criminal charges would seem unnecessary. Does anyone know if it is a reading found anywhere in our 3 year Daily Missal cycle?

    Reblogged this on Unthinkable Thought and commented:
    When I was younger, I would hear what I dismissed as “crazy old church people” saying that there would come a time in this country when Christians would be persecuted. I always thought: “Impossible! Not in America!” I never thought I’d live to see the day. Those “crazies” were quite prescient. Having been steeped in the Word, they understood the cycles of the world. We’re living in a time where God has been stripped from the culture and where people of faith are mocked and oppressed for professing that faith, all in the name of fake “progressivism” and “tolerance.” A scene like this might become common before too long.

    All hail JH.

    Let’s hope Farver doesn’t inadvertently mention Romans 1:26-27 in the parish newsletter, perhaps.

    Really, those Romans.

    At least as, if not more worrisome than the case of the odd courageous priest being hauled up on hate speech charges is the loss of the Church’s tax exempt status. About 30 years ago, Bob Jones University, the South Carolina bible college, lost its exemption when the Supreme Court decreed that BJU rules against interracial dating and marriage violated a “fundamental national policy” and were, therefore, sufficient cause to revoke its charitable status.

    “[E]ntitlement to tax exemption depends on meeting certain common law standards of charity – namely that an institution seeking tax-exempt status must serve a public purpose and not be contrary to established public policy…Whatever may be the rationale for such private schools’ policies, racial discrimination in education is contrary to public policy.”

    Bob Jones University v. United States (1983)

    It will be the work of a moment for some IRS bureaucrat to extend that rationale and revoke the tax exemption of organizations that discriminate against people exercising their constitutional right to same-sex marriage. And after that happens in the USA, how long before the domino effect sets off a chain reaction elsewhere?

    Bob Jones University decided to toe the government line 17 years later. Will Holy Mother Church resist that long, referring (I hasten to add) to the temporal institution, not the sacred one?

    Well, here is an interesting story about a family in New York whose family farm used to host wedding ceremonies and the state was actually trying to force them to allow the gays to marry on their farm. Here is the link:

    God bless. Ginnyfree.

    Fatima 1917. Portugal then was secular, imprisoning priests and religious, closing church’s. This was the background to Oct 13 1917. Then Clouds cleared and then the Sun Danced. Lets be clear this generation would scourge and crucify Our Lord All over again! He would be denied as a rabid trouble maker. His disciples banned from preaching and indoctrinating the young!
    Do not think he would be welcomed in Rome!

    To fine these farm people is an appalling, and utterly illiberal, action.
    I remember being told that in the UK, some 30 years ago, pub landlords had the right to bar any potential customer without giving any reason ( don’t know if this is/was true, actually, but it ought to be) because nobody should be made to perform actions, work if you like, that is inimical to them. The trouble comes when they are required to justify their stance, such as, ” I won’t make a cake for you, because I don’t like Catholics.” or, “I won’t take you wedding photos, because you are too fat.” It should be enough just to say. “No, thanks.” – and that’s that. Doubtless in these circumstances, some gays, Catholics, and fat people will take offence.
    Life’s like that. Of course, the solution is diplomatic lying. “Sorry, but I’m too busy this week, “ etc.,

    A brilliant piece (^) that. Wish I’d written it. The New York Times article to which Rummelsburg (the author) refers reeks of the hubristic triumphalism we can expect from the sexual cannibals who think they have won the war on the family.

    Although not the central premise of his essay, Rummelsburg seems to believe as I do that our present predicament can be traced back to the (hetero)sexual revolution. Witness the film poster from Bob &Ted &Carol & Alice that he uses to illustrate his piece.

    Is this the future we have to look forward to: living in Dar al-Islam or in Dar al-Gay? Whichever, we are the authors of our own misfortune.

    …forgive the (Freudian?) slip. It’s Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice:

    It does seem to be moving in that direction at the moment. The only hope is that the latter House will collapse in on itself due to the nothingness of the ideology that it has replaced the old foundations of natural law and Christian ethics with, and that thereafter the Truth will rise up again from the rubble. Things will no doubt get worse before they get better, but a culture that enshrines in law lies about the most basic things that make a society in the first place (the nature and purpose of man and the centrality of the family) cannot last long. The question then is whether or not, by the time this happens, Europe will already be a ‘Dar-al-Islam’….the relative birth rates would certainly suggest that to be at least very probable.

    Thanks Toad. I’m glad you at least watched it. God bless. Ginnyfree.
    P.S. How many pubs di you get bounced from as a tadpole?

    Nice Mike. Thanks for sharing. God bless. Ginnyfree
