    Outstanding testimony! Well articulated! Words have meaning! Stellar rebuttal! Wow!!!

  2. Oh, if only the world had many like this public man. This man has FAR more courage than any prelate, including anyone in the Vatican, and includes ANY prelate of the last not 40 years I’ve come across. Thank you God.

    He says what I say myself, but with grace and charm and sensibility, rather than my own aggressiveness and impatience.

    Britain needs the very manner of orthodox Catholic PM that this fine gentleman could become

  5. Mary Salmond says:

    Amen! It would be a turn for the good of Britain!

  6. Roger says:

    Please pray to Fr Dominic Barberi to convert the 19th century Spring (Newman, Faber, Manning, Spenser) into a 21st century Summer (Our Lady’s Dowry).
    This so important to have a Statesman say it just as it is!

    Catholicism which will preclude him from high, or at least highest office in the UK.

  8. toadspittle says:

    I suspect Mogg came across to most viewers as slippery and dissimulating on the issue of same-sex marriage. He certainly did so to me. If he disapproves of it – and he’s perfectly entitled to – why did he not come out and straightforwardly say so?
    .(..Because he’d potentially lose millions of votes, is why, Toad, you twit.)

    [A moderator in answer to Toad-the-twit: Because by not spelling it out his opponents are unable to pin him down to having admitted his disapproval of same-sex marriage. It was a clever move, but his position on this aberration is evident. Remaining inside the political scenario Mr. Rees-Mogg can do far more for the pro-life cause and Christian marriage and family than out in the cold.]

  9. Roger says:

    What I saw was Mogg give public testimony of the Catholic Faith.
    Marriage is a sacrament and the decision lies with the Church and not with Parliament. He supports the teaching of the Catholic Church.

    Piers Morgan said that He was a Catholic but didn’t agree with the Catholic teaching!

    Nearly two thirds of Catholics support abortion, survey suggests …
    28 Jun 2017 – The poll also found a large majority of Catholics approve of same-sex relationships and sex before marriage.

    Thats correct the majority of Catholics support Abortion and same sex marriage!

    The only reason for questioning Gods’ Commandments is because two thirds of Catholics want freedom to Sin. These are denying Christs Truth These deceivers are the ones employed by Lucifer to try and destroy the Church.

    Be this Pope, Prelate or whomever I do not listen to those who say that a sin is no longer a sin.

    Something for the toad :

    Ah how shameless – the way these mortals blame the gods. From us alone they say come all their miseries yes but they themselves with their own reckless ways compound their pains beyond their proper share. — Homer, The Odyssey

  11. toadspittle says:

    Toad has never blamed a god in his life, Jabba. But thanks for the kindly thought.

    The “moderator’s” answer above @20.58, is perfectly reasonable. That is to say that I agree with it, entirely. I wouldn’t vote for Mogg, because he’s pro-Brexit. Couldn’t care less what he thinks about gay marriage.

    Yes, Roger, not all Catholics think alike, like a lot of sheep.
    Some even believe the world is more than 8,000 years old.
    Wouldn’t be surprised if Piers Morgan believes that, as well.

  12. Roger says:

    Mogg is a Catholic of integrity and honesty.
    What do I believe? I believe in one true God, Most Pure Spirit, Almighty, Living, Creative and Eternal, Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost: One Divine Essence in three truly distinct Persons, coequal and coeternal one with another.God isn’t Old because He has always been. He is the beginning and end of all things, without past, without future, in one eternal present.

    John 1
    [1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    [2] The same was in the beginning with God.
    [3] All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made.
    [4] In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
    [5] And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

    That is the Gospel according to St John.

    What do you believe? Well you and Piers Morgan and 2/3 rds of Catholics are denying the Incarnation. You are calling God a lier. Revelation is necessary for Fallen Mans because like the Greeks in the time of St Paul Rational thinking is flawed.
    You have swallowed hook line and sinker Naturalism and Rationalism when you know that the Church is Supernatural and thus denying Revelation. You are actually denying the Word Made Flesh.

    Sin is darkness and human reasoning is flawed which the reason for the Incarnation. You reasoning is like that of Pilate What is Truth? Before Pilate was God in His Glory scourged, derided, crowned with thrones and bleeding profusely awaiting to be Crucified for the Sin of the World.

  13. kathleen says:

    Well said, Roger.

    I had the same feeling of yuckiness when hearing that other man in the discussion, Piers Morgan, have the audacity to call himself a Catholic, but (and there’s always a “but” for these catholics-in-name-only who refute the Church’s teaching) disagree with Jacob Rees-Mogg on his brave and staunch defence of Holy Matrimony and the Life of the Unborn.

    Something is sadly lacking in our catechesis these days. To be a true Catholic one must accept everything contained in the sacred Deposit of Faith. To pick and choose at random what to believe is totally unacceptable and un-Catholic – an anathema.

    Swimming against the strong tide of reigning anti-Catholic ideology is really challenging, and often very frightening, for we expose ourselves to a mountain of ridicule and insult. One must have a strong Faith and sheer guts to stay faithful to the constant onslaughts we come across in our daily lives.
    Politicians in particular, like Jacob Rees-Morgan, will not find it easy and will need much support from fellow Catholics in their career. He is clearly a real man (not a coward who goes with the flow of the world). JRM is a faithful Catholic.

  14. toadspittle says:

    Well said, Roger and Kathleen – faithful sheep indeed.

  15. mmvc says:

    This was JRM’s tweet after the interview:

    Jacob Rees-Mogg‏Verified account @Jacob_Rees_Mogg 20h20 hours ago

    …Et unam, sanctam, catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam.

  16. Mary Salmond says:

    Even JMR tweet take fortitude! Bravo!

  17. Grammaticus says:

    Would the rottweilers have attacked a guest of the Muslim persuasion with the same obtuse crassness – for expressing similar religious views??

  18. Mary Salmond says:

    Grammaticus: the double standard of media personalities.

  19. Roger says:

    Nero is proverbial for murder, rape, sodomy, incest, cruelty, and every kind of crime imaginable. He was also the first Roman emperor to have married a man, he is reported to have married two other males on different occasions.

    We have the defiant and direct Persecution of Christians in an Anti Christian Age which is remarkable similar to Nero’s time.

  20. toadspittle says:

    “We have the defiant and direct Persecution of Christians in an Anti Christian Age which is remarkable similar to Nero’s time.”
    Nobody’s persecuting Christians in the West, these days. Very recently, (think Northern Ireland) “Christians” cheerfully persecuted one another. That was presumably OK. But claiming we are “remarkably similar” to Nero today, because Mogg was asked a couple of questions of public interest?
    Get a grip, Roger.

    Right now, Buddhists are really persecuting Muslims in Myanmar, and Muslims really are persecuting Christians in Africa. Killing them wholesale.
    Real, deadly, persecution. Like in England 500 years ago, or France in Montaigne’s day.
    Likening a TV interview to those doesn’t help. Just the opposite.

    “Would the rottweilers have attacked a guest of the Muslim persuasion with the same obtuse crassness – for expressing similar religious views??”
    Do Muslims express “similar religious views,” to Mogg, then Grammaticus? In which case the “rottweilers” might well grill them – particularly if the Muslim in question was a potential Prime Minister. I’d expect them to, anyway. That’s a crass rottweiler’s job.
    Would Grammaticus consider questioning a Muslim politician on whether or not he (or she) believed all non-Muslims to be damned – to be “crass?” I wouldn’t.
    And would asking any politician if he (or she) is, for example, anti-Semitic, or anti-Catholic, or not – be considered “crass,” in your book? Where do we draw the line on questions?
    What should politicans be asked? If they think we’ll get a nice bit of rain later?
    Personally, I’d be interested in a politicans views on these and many other topics (apart from the rain) – including gay marriage and abortion.
    Just out of curiosity, of course.

  21. kathleen says:


    “We have the defiant and direct Persecution of Christians in an Anti Christian Age which is remarkable similar to Nero’s time.”

    That is the truth. “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Through no fault of our own though!

    Today, a horrific 78 to 80% of global religious persecution is perpetrated on Christians… and these figures are according to secular statistics (just in case there is anyone like a certain anti-Catholic toad who doubts the source). Besides, there is the fact that “religious persecution” of the type Jacob Rees-Mogg is suffering at the hands of the secular Media and a large part of the godless general public, who attempt to drag his name through the mud for upholding God’s Divine Law and the right to believe in the teachings of his Catholic Faith, is not taken into account by these above-mentioned statistics! It is, nonetheless, a cruel form of “persecution”.

    Real Christians (including some honest Protestants) are showing their support for Jacob Rees-Mogg, like the good bishop of Shrewsbury, Mark Davies, and Catholic Herald contributor, Fr Alexander Lucie-Smith: “Catholics cannot abandon the public square“. But we have it tough in the UK and Ireland where militant atheism is on the rise.

    The former Islands of Saints are becoming Islands of Iniquity. So sad!

    What I ask myself is this…. How on Earth will honest men of integrity and faith ever be allowed to progress in their careers when they face such enormous, hostile opposition?

  22. toadspittle says:

    “…. there is the fact that “religious persecution” of the type Jacob Rees-Mogg is suffering at the hands of the secular Media and a large part of the godless general public…”
    I very much doubt Mogg considers himself to be “persecuted,” because he patently isn’t. He’s a politician. He knows he can’t please everyone, and that his views will be scrutinised. If he doesn’t know that, or accept it – he’s in the wrong game. The fact that he’s a Catholic doesn’t give him a free pass, any more than if he was an Atheist or a Communist.

    “Today, a horrific 78 to 80% of global religions persecution is perpetrated on Christians…”
    Would it be equally horrific if it was perpetrated on Muslims, or HIndus? No doubt it would.

  23. Grammaticus says:

    Complete nonsense (toad). The laws governing these matters are already in place – and that won’t change given our PC crazed culture (largely created by the PC obsessed media propaganda).
    Would Khan be invited into a TV studio, ostensibly to discuss Brexit – and be treated with such aggressive lack of courtesy?
    The rottweilers were truly a disgrace, flailing around like demonic maniacs.

  24. Roger says:

    JRM explained where the authority for these Laws lies and His Faith.
    I mentioned Nero, Christ overcame pagan Rome and toppled its false Gods and this will clearly happen to the movers and shakers of this world. Just so that you know where the blame lies.
    Christ assists His Church through the ages by apparitions, miracles, and diverse charismatic and prophetic gifts. A multitude of sanctuaries, devotions and religious Orders owe to these their existence. In these Last times (Fatima is Apoc), there have multiplied extraordinarily the apparitions of the Most Holy Virgin Mary.
    Now we know that the Immaculate Heart will Triumph IN THE END. You mentioned sheep! I remind you of Goats.

  25. toadspittle says:

    “The rottweilers were truly a disgrace, flailing around like demonic maniacs.”
    That kind of hysterical hyperbole will get nobody anywhere, Grammiticus. Play it again.
    Morgan and the woman were, I agree, rather ill-mannered and overly aggressive – but I think their questions were quite legitimate.
    You apparently do not. But that’s another question.

    “Complete nonsense (toad). The laws governing these matters are already in place – and that won’t change given our PC crazed culture…”
    Laws have changed on many occasions before, and not always for the better. You will surely agree on that. And they can change yet again. As can our current “crazed PC culture.”
    So, it’s reasonable to be informed about the views of the people you might consider voting for.
    Or don’t you agree?

  26. Roger says:

    I remind that neither with Divorce, Abortion, Homosexual Act, same sex marriage were EVER voted for or discussed in a General Election. The route was by Privately introduced Laws and this globally.So the policy was to deliberate NOT inform the voters. Then we come to Eire who should be reminded of what St Teresa Avila said “I and God are a Majority!”
    Sin is being promoted by the global governments, by global televisions, by global networks, by Media and even within the Church.
    This world cannot say that it hasn’t been warned by Heaven.
    Our Lady of the Aborted! She whose little ones are ripped from their mothers wombs millions and millions of them!
