Vídeo: Andrea Bocelli Caminha de Joelhos em Fátima.



Eu tive a graça de visitar Fátima no dia de meu aniversário. É meu aniversário mais inesquecível.

No último dia 13 de maio, o cantor lírico italiano Andrea Bocelli cantou no Santuário de Fátima. Antes disso, Bocelli rezou muito e caminhou de joelhos em Fátima, como mostrado no vídeo acima.  Ele declarou que em Fátima cada respiração é uma oração.

Sensacional. Para todos que amam Nossa Senhora.

Andrea Bocelli não é apenas inspiração na música. Sua mãe quase o abortou e ele hoje não cansa de agradecer e louvar a Deus e Nossa Senhora.

Abaixo a apresentação que ele fez em Fátima.

O Magistério das Sombras do Papa Francisco


Padre Raymond de Souza fala do que chama de "magistério das sombras" do Papa Francisco, que costuma brilhar mais no mundo que o magistério oficial da Igreja. Magistério das Sombras são palavras do Papa Francisco dita a particulares que se tornam públicas e o Papa não as condena, nem as nega.

Padre Raymond de Souza aponta cinco ocasiões do Magistério das Sombras, além do último caso de ontem com um homem gay, no jornal The Catholic Herald.

Vejamos:

- Em abril de 2014, uma mulher da Argentina que disse que Francisco ligou para ela e disse que apesar do casamento dela ser inválido, ela deveria desprezar as instruções da Igreja e receber a Eucaristia:

- Em janeiro de 2015, Francisco ligou para um homem transgênero e disse que Deus aceitava que ele fosse transgênero. Francisco convidou esse homem e seu parceiro para Roma;

- Muitas entrevistas que o Papa deu para o ateu Scalfari, na última deste ano, Scalfari falou que o Papa disse que o inferno não existe;

- Em novembro de 2015, uma mulher protestante, casada com um católico, perguntou ao Papa se ela podia receber a Eucaristia, o que é proibido na lei canônica, o Papa respondeu simplesmente que ela perguntasse a Deus e procedesse conforme.

- No começo deste ano, um menino perguntou ao Papa se seu pai que era ateu estava no céu,  o Papa deu a entender ao menino que o pai estava no céu.

Nenhum dos momentos assim recebeu clarificação explícita por parte do Papa ou do Vaticano.

Bom, tem muito mais no Magistério das Sombras, como sempre eu faço, recomendo que acompanhem o trabalho do grupo de sacerdotes do Denzinger-Bergoglio, que certa vez eu traduzi um artigo deles a pedido aqui no blog.

Ligue para Aparecida, Ligue para Vaticano. É Guerra pela Igreja.


Católicos em guerra contra a própria hierarquia da Igreja, talvez como nunca antes. Lutamos contra desde o pároco ao Papa.

Um padre chamado João Batista de Almeida cometeu um sacrilégio e usou o santuário de Nossa Senhora de Aparecida politicamente em favor de Lula. Isso depois do Santuário prometer que isso não iria acontecer.

O leigo Bernardo Kuster, que está fazendo ótimo trabalho em favor dos verdadeiros católicos, mostrando o comunismo entricado dentro da Igreja Católica no Brasil, pediu que os católicos ligassem no Santuário e reclamassem do absurdo sacrilégio do padre.

Concordo plenamente, liguem e reclamem:
Telefone: 012 3104 1000.

Devemos também ligar no Vaticano, no entanto.

Hoje leio que uma vítima de abuso sexual do Chile, que é gay, relatou que o Papa Francisco disse que Deus fez ele gay e o ama assim!!!!

É gay? Tudo certo, segundo Papa Francisco. Esqueçam o que o próprio Deus falou na Bíblia.

Não conheço o telefone do Vaticano. Se conhecerem me informem por favor

Mas a gente pode reagir no twitter do Papa aqui.

Aqui vai parte do texto sobre o Papa Francisco do journal The Catholic Herald.



Pope Francis said ‘that you are gay does not matter’, abuse survivor claims

A survivor of clerical sex abuse has said that Pope Francis told him God made him gay and loves him as he is.
Juan Carlos Cruz, who was one of the three abuse survivors who met the Pope in private earlier this month, said some of Chile’s bishops sought to depict him as a pervert and used his sexuality to try to discredit him.
Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter,” he said Francis told him. “God made you like this and loves you like this and it doesn’t matter to me. The Pope loves you like this, you have to be happy with who you are.”
If correct, these words go beyond anything the Pope has said previously on the subject. During an in-flight press conference in 2013, when returning from Brazil, the Pope said: “If someone is gay and seeks the Lord with goodwill, who am I to judge?”
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that people who experience same-sex attractions should be “accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity” and that “every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided” (Section 2358), however “under no circumstances” can homosexual acts be approved.

Vaticano sobre Finanças e Meu Livro


Eu estou escrevendo um livro sobre ética católica para economia. Estou quase no final. Para minha surpresa, ontem vi um documento, feito em conjunto pela Congregação para Doutrina da Fé e do Dicastério da Promoção Integral Humana do Vaticano, sobre mercado financeiro.

Sem falar do estímulo do meu livro, para gente como eu que é católico e trabalha com mercado financeiro é muito interessante ver um documento do Vaticano com as palavras "derivativos" e "credit default swap". E ver que até a Bloomberg, agência de análise financeira, comentou o documento comparando o Papa Francisco com o multimilionário Warren Buffett.

O documento se chama "Oeconomicae et pecuniariae quaestiones"(questões econômicas e financeiras) 

O documento defende basicamente duas coisas: ética nas finanças e mais regulação financeira.

O documento, no geral, é muito bom, lembra que o mercado deve ser guiado pela desenvolvimento integral do homem. Além de corretamente atacar a jogatina do mercado financeiro.

Mas sendo uma pessoa que estuda e trabalha com as duas coisas: ética e mercado financeiro, o documento é um pouco frustrante.

Primeiro porque apenas faz uma leve defesa da ética católica, e muito defesa de uma "ética do mercado", coisa que sempre me incomoda pois não acho que nem o mercado financeiro, nem muito menos a Igreja, devem  tratar a ética como se tivesse setores. Essa separação da ética por profissão só traz prejuízo à ética adotada e ao emburrecimento do debate moral.

Vou a debates sobre ética no mercado e é sempre muito rasteiro quando não é estúpido mesmo.

Outra coisa, o documento não reconhece os perigos da regulação financeira exagerada. 

O mundo financeiro já é muito regulado e muitas vezes mal regulado.

Quem analisa os Acordos de Basileia, acordos para capital regulatório de bancos, logo se pergunta se eles não pioram a concentração bancária.

Além disso, vivemos em tempos de "fintech", instituição financeira simples com uso de tecnologia ou moeda virtual, que sofre pouca regulação mas pode diminuir juros, spreads bancarios e a concentração bancária. Apesar de trazer riscos de fraudes, fraudes que estão presentes em grandes conglomerados financeiros altamente regulados também.

Quem discute regulação tem de tratar dos riscos da baixa e também da elevada regulação.

Outra frustração é não ver menção à Bíblia nem a tantos teólogos que trataram de economia na história, coisa que faço no meu livro.

Em todo caso, parabéns pelo documento.

Hamas Devolve Ajuda Humanitária de Israel


Chesterton disse que um bom soldado não luta pelo que o está na frente, mas pelo o que está atrás dele. Os grupos terroristas da Palestina são piores, eles desprezam tanto o que está na frente (Israel), como o que está atrás (casas, famílias, filhos).

Poucas charges refletem tanto a realidade com a que vai acima. Os palestinos liderados por grupos terroristas usam seu próprio povo, especialmente crianças, para objetivos políticos e de guerra.

Hoje leio que o Hamas devolveu dois grandes caminhões de ajuda humanitária doados por Israel com remédios e artigos para cuidados com saúde.

HAMAS TURNS AWAY TRUCKLOADS OF ISRAELI HUMANITARIAN AID DESTINED FOR GAZA

Hospitals in the Gaza Strip were reported to have struggled to treat Palestinians wounded in clashes with the IDF on the Israel-Gaza border.

 MAY 16, 2018 10:48

Hamas turned away two large truckloads of Israeli humanitarian aid intended to relieve medical shortages in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday.

The IDF said it coordinated the transfer of eight truckloads of vital medical equipment through the Kerem Shalom crossing due to severe humanitarian conditions in the Hamas-controlled enclave, with hospitals struggling to treat Palestinians wounded in clashes on the Israel-Gaza border on Monday and Tuesday.

Hamas accepted four trucks of aid supplied by the Palestinian Authority and two trucks supplied by UNICEF. But two truckloads of medical aid provided by the IDF were turned away when the origin of the equipment became apparent.

In addition to 53 tons of medical equipment set to be transported into Gaza this week via the crossing, the increased Israeli aid included more than 14,000 units of intravenous infusions, 40 medical basins, 20 medical examination couches, 25 infusion stands, 85,000 disinfectant pads and 12,500 bandages.

The transfer was facilitated by the IDF in coordination with the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) and the Gaza District Coordination and Liaison office.

Turquia quer Liderar Muçulmanos contra Israel


Os muçulmanos não têm bom histórico de união em torno de um líder para derrotar os "infiéis". Depois de Maomé, pode-se dizer que eles nunca conseguiram.

A Turquia, assim como a Rússia, sonha em reviver seu império otomano.

Agora temos um ditador na Turquia que despreza os princípios do fundador do país, Mustafa Ataturk.

Vendo que Trump reconheceu Jerusalém como capital de Israel, e montou a embaixada americana lá, Erdogan quer aproveitar a revolta muçulmana para se posicionar como califa e atacar Israel.

Bom, vai ter de lidar com Arábia Saudita, Jordânia e Indonésia antes, que de uma forma ou de outra apoiam Trump.

Se quer defender o grupo terrorista Hamas da Palestina, a Turquia també deverá lidar com Irã que é mais próximo do Hamas.

Sem falar que a Turquia já sofre com as relações com a Europa. Atacar Israel colocará a Europa em check.

Vejam artigo abaixo da PressTv que fala da vontade da Turquia de juntar os muçulmanos contra Israel.

Turkey has urged Islamic countries to review their ties with Israel after dozens of Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire on the Gaza border.
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim told his ruling party in parliament that Ankara would call an extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
"Islamic countries should without fail review their relations with Israel," Premier Yildirim said, adding, “The Islamic world should move as one, with one voice, against this massacre."
Yildirim said that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who currently holds the rotating chairmanship of the body, called the OIC summit on Friday.
Yildirim said that after the summit at 3:00 pm a giant rally would be held at the vast Yenikapi meeting area in Istanbul under the slogan of "Stop the Oppression" to express solidarity with the Palestinians.
"This has nothing to do with party politics. This is to show solidarity, brotherhood and togetherness," he said.
"The Islamic world should move as one, with one voice, against this massacre," Yildirim added.
Ankara has reacted with fury to the killing Monday of 60 Palestinians in clashes and protests, on the same day as the United States formally moved its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem al-Quds from Tel Aviv in defiance of international outrage.
Ankara said it was recalling its ambassadors to the United States and Israel for consultations in the wake of the events.

Vídeo: Método Hamas de Combater Israel



Vale muito à pena ver esse vídeo antes de considerar as notícias sobre o conflito de hoje na região por conta da inauguração da embaixada americana em Jerusalém.

Método Hamas:

- Uso de crianças como escudo humano (por vezes com apoio das mães delas!!!);
- Uso de feridos ou falso feridos para propaganda política, sem se preocupar com a vida dos feridos;
- Uso da mídia esquerdista internacional e da ONU para defender suas demandas contra Israel;
- Uso de queima de pneus para a entrada de terroristas em Israel.


(Agradeço o vídeo ao site Gatestone Institute)

França quer Rasgar Parte do Alcorão, Turquia Reage.


Há um movimento na França, estimulado por Sarkozy e Macron, de tirar as partes violentas do Alcorão e assim tornar o Islã menos agressivo.

Eu, que já escrevi artigos e um livro em que trato do Alcorão, diria primeiro que a qualidade que mais se destaca no Alcorão é sua simplicidade, apesar de usar linguagem rebuscada. Alcorão é materialista, não é espiritual. E o Alcorão é um livro pequeno e extremamente repetitivo.

Há muitos versos (suras) violentos. Por vezes, os versos violentos estão dentro de suras consideradas pacíficas. Para mais detalhes, eu sugiro meu artigo Trying to Catch the Deluge: Shari'ah, Terrorism and Religious Freedom, que publiquei no Reino Unido. Quem quiser o artigo é só enviar email na seção de comentário que eu envio, sem disponibilizar publicamente o email.

O que sobraria se tirassem os versos violentos? Eu diria que sobrariam principalmente versos de elogios a Alá, e a Maomé , versos que falam de personagens bíblicos de forma errada (como Jesus Cristo, Maria, Moisés, Noé, Abraão) e versos sobre comportamentos sexuais e materialistas (como casamento com quatro esposa, divisão de bens e escravas, etc). Mas o Alcorão iria ficar mas sem nexo do que já é, pois o Alcorão não usa cronologia, nem contexto em seus versos.

A Turquia reagiu ao movimento da França, comparando a França ao Estado Islâmico. Dizendo que seria um ato de barbarismo da França.

Eu acho que todo o Alcorão deve ser rasgado em praça pública e dito que essa religião/ideologia totalitarista não deve ter lugar na sociedade. O que sobra não presta.

Vejam a reação da Turquia do site Hurriyet Daily News:

Turkey slams French figures demanding change in Quran

Turkey’s EU Affairs Minister Ömer Çelik on May 6 slammed a French manifesto proposing the removal of some verses from the Quran, saying those 300 prominent French figures demanding the changes were as “bigoted” as members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) who infer violence from the holy book, state-run Anadolu Agency reported.
“This is the most striking example of intellectual violence and barbarism. Whoever these people are and whatever they have been doing up till now, they will be written at the beginning of the history of bigotry,” Çelik said on Twitter.
“Barbarism is intellectually and politically centered in the modern world,” he added. 
Çelik drew parallel between the “barbaric and immoral” proposal and the ideology of ISIL.
“They could not tell in a better way that they are the closest ideological relatives of Daesh. But this approach, which will be the subject of political psychiatry, reveals how barbarism has risen in the midst of Europe, and how this mentality, at least as dangerous as Daesh, keeps itself behind certain concepts,” he said, using the Arabic name for ISIL.
“These are the most dangerous ones; those who conceal themselves behind an intellectual and political image. This is the mentality of those who are so-called anti-violence, but in fact they worship the bigotry and violence. These 300 French figures are the same as Daesh which infers violence from the humanity’s guide Quran,” Çelik added.
On April 21, 300 prominent French figures, including former President Nicolas Sarkozy and former Prime Minister Manuel Valls signed a manifesto published in the French daily Le Parisien and demanded some parts of the Quran, which they claimed have included violence and anti-Semitic references, be removed

Moeda de Game Vale Mais que Moeda da Venezuela


Fundo do Poço? Como um modelo comunista regularmente gera mortes humanas por fome ou por assassinatos mesmo, o pior é sempre isso. Mas esses fatos econômicos são sempre relavadores do modelo comunista que julga, desde Marx, ter as melhores respostas para questões econômicas.

A moeda do jogo World of Warcraft vale mais que o bolívar venezuelano, a moeda da Venezuela.

Não conheço o jogo, nem gosto de games, mas a moeda do jogo não vale muito. Um dólar vale quasse 70 mil bolívars, a moeda do game não precisa valer muito.

Vejam o texto do site SHFT Plan.

Online Game’s Currency Is Now Worth 7 Times More Than Venezuela’s Bolivar

Mac Slavo

The currency in the online role-playing game World of Warcraft is now worth more than Venezuela’s bolivar. File this one under: “Things that happen when socialists take over.”

Although it’s probably not very funny for those who use money as toilet paper in the socialist dystopia of Venezuela, it’s nonetheless, a teachable moment for delusional leftists in the United States who are chomping at the bit for a master like
Bernie Sanders Nicholas Maduro. Because of anti-capitalist ideals, the fake gold of Azeroth in the World of Warcraft is now worth seven times what the bolivar is worth.

Here’s the math behind the currency value:
Per Google, one U.S. dollar is worth 68,915 bolivar.
Compare that to the price of WoW tokens, official in-game credits that can be used to extend a player’s play time or buy in-game items. Tokens can be bought with either $20 real world cash or sold for a fluctuating amount of in-game gold. One tracking service lists the current gold price of a token as 203,035 pieces. That works out to about 10,152 gold gaming pieces per USD.
By those calculations, World of Warcraft virtual gold would be worth 6.8 times as much as the bolivar.
If you factor in the black market rate of the bolivar, though, the difference is even more staggering. Dolar Today, which tracks the black market rate of the bolivar, seems to say the currency’s current value is 636,771.03 per U.S. dollar.
By that figure, WoW gold would be worth nearly 62 times as much as Venezuela’s official currency. –Forbes

A big shoutout to Forbes for doing the heavy lifting on the math. But it doesn’t change the fact Venezuela seems to have dug themselves into a pit that they won’t get out of with more regulations and market controls. Of course, Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro has shifted his support away from the Bolivar and over to the recently-launched national cryptocurrency, the Petro.

Venezuelan citizens, meanwhile, have taken to bartering in their day to day business dealings. Which is a better deal anyway – no sales tax (extortion fee).

O Bispo que Pede Novo Conclave. Para Ele, Bergoglio Não Pode Ser Considerado Papa


O Bispo Rene Henry Gracida, de 95 anos, escreveu recentemente um artigo pedindo novo conclave, pois para ele o cardeal Bergoglio foi eleito de forma ilegal para ser Papa, segundo a Constituição Pastoral Universi Dominic Gregis, de 1996, assinada pelo Papa João Paulo II.

A base de argumentação do Bispo Gracida é o parágrafo 76 e a conclusão deste documento.

O parágrafo 76 diz: : No caso de a eleição ser feita de uma forma diversa daquela prescrita na presente Constituição ou sem terem sido observadas as condições aqui estabelecidas, tal eleição é por isso mesmo nula e inválida, sem necessidade de qualquer declaração, e, portanto, não confere direito algum à pessoa eleita.

E a conclusão diz: declaro completamente destituído de valor tudo aquilo que, por quem quer que seja, com qualquer autoridade, consciente ou inconscientemente, for tentado em sentido contrário a esta Constituição.

O ponto principal da argumentação dele é que houve conluio para eleger Bergoglio, o que é ilegal segundo a Universi Dominic Gregis. Leiam o artigo clicando aqui.

O bispo Rene Gracida deu uma entrevista no dia 6 de maio passado e confirmou que sua intenção é convocar os cardeais a um novo conclave.

Vejam parte da entrevista dele:

Dear Bishop Gracida, Your Excellency,

Thank you for your reply from down there in Texas, to me a blogger up here in Oklahoma, and thanks for considering my request for an online interview.  I would greatly appreciate any response you can give to my questions, and to readers worldwide, which you approve of before I post it.  

Questions:

1.  In a recent article posted to your blog, which has since been read around the world, you supported the case that Pope Francis may not be a valid pope, and that the Cardinals themselves consider electing a new pope.  Was/Is your intention that the article might end up being read by Cardinal Burke, and other Cardinals, with the unique authority to directly confront the problem of the Francis pontificate?



Yes, that was and still is my hope. Since only the validly appointed Cardinals have the power to initiate a solution to the present crisis in the Church, it was and still is my hope that they will be encouraged by what I published to take the necessary steps toward a solution as was proposed in the post.



2.  In your experience these last weeks, how has the response been from the laity, priests, and other bishops - if any - both online and in the flesh?  Do you anticipate backlash from members of the hierarchy, or Rome?  Or even from Cardinal Burke himself?



There has been some response but not from cardinals. I do not really look for response from cardinals, I look for action on their part to initiate the steps that will lead to a special conclave. I do not expect them to publicize those steps, I expect them to move silently and discretely in order to minimize active opposition by the friends of Francis who are now firmly entrenched in the Vatican curia.​



3. Reading the argument, it seems the main basis and bulk of it is the contention the 2013 conclave broke conclave laws, enacted by Pope John Paul II, that would invalidate the election results.  It begins by discussing the issue of heresy and papal infallibility, but seems to not make those issues the main basis. There seems to be strong enough evidence that certain Cardinals of the conspiring "St. Gallican Group" did violate conclave laws, enough to at least now raise the question of the validity of Cardinal Bergoglio's election. Am I correct in understanding this argument?  Is that the focus you are encouraging the Cardinals to take? 



Yes, that is the focus I am encouraging the Cardinals to take.​

É, a Espanha Salvou a América. Arqueologistas Descobrem 140 Crianças Sacrificadas por Índios.


Foi encontrada perto da cidade de Trujillo, no Peru, uma cova coletiva de 140 crianças de 5 a 14 anos que foram sacrificadas, em rituais, há 550 anos, pelos índios do Império de Chimu que habitavam na região. O local também contém esqueletos de 200 llamas que foram também sacrificadas no mesmo dia.

Os arqueólogos acreditam que as crianças foram sacrificadas aos deuses por conta do mal clima provocado pelo fenômeno do El Nino.

Identificou-se pegadas das crianças, que indicam que elas marcharam para o sacrifício de um local chamado Chan Chan até o local do sacrifício chamado Las Llamas, distância de 1,6 km.

Durante os sacrifícios, tentaram arrancar o coração das crianças a facadas.

Os achados forma publicados no National Geography, que financiou a pesquisa . O jornal The Telegraph lembra que os sacrifícios humanos também eram feitos pelos Maias, Astecas e Incas (que conquistaram o Império Chimu no final do século 15).

O padre Alexander Lucie-Smith, cuja mãe é chilena, aproveitou esse macabro achado arqueológico e escreveu hoje um artigo sobre o assunto, ressaltando a civilização que a Espanha trouxe à América Latina ao dominar a região.

Vejamos parte do texto do Padre Alexander Lucie-Smith:

Was the Spanish Empire all bad? I’m not so sure

by 
posted 
The phrase “The Golden Age of Spain” is one that is deeply familiar to me from my childhood. My mother was born in Antofagasta, in Chile, and as a boy I was brought up on books that told of the wonderful deeds of the explorers such as Christopher Columbus, and the conquistadors, men who, with a few companions, overthrew vast empires and claimed them for Spain, and, of course, for the Catholic faith. How thrilled I was that Columbus’s flagship was called the Santa Maria and that his first act on landing in the New World was to plant the Cross! How correspondingly disappointed I was to read about the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588, an event that used to be seen as the end of the Golden Age, just as the reconquest of Granada in 1492 (the same year as Columbus’s first voyage) marked its opening.
I will be forever grateful to my mother for bringing me up so politically incorrectly. The great excitement of history is with me still, and thus it is with intense interest I have just read about the most recent archaeological discoveries in Peru, as reported by the Daily Telegraph. Archaeologists have recently uncovered evidence of the mass sacrifice of children at a site called Las Llamas....
All this represents an inconvenient truth for those who would like to have us believe that the Spanish conquest of the New World was not a good thing. Pre-Colombian civilizations, which achieved a great deal, as any visit to a museum in Mexico will show, nevertheless had great drawbacks, as any honest observer must admit. The same is true, of course, of the Spanish Empire in the New World, but, and it remains a huge but, the Spanish abolished human sacrifice and banished the sort of errors that made people think that human sacrifice was either good or necessary.
The discovery of this site of mass child sacrifice in Peru could provide ammunition for those who want to see European values as innately superior to those of pre-Colombian America. Conversely, it could be used by moral relativists to claim that child sacrifice is not per se an innately evil thing, and that we must not judge other societies which are very different from our own by the standards we would judge ourselves. However, my own view of things is clear, though some might find it simplistic: no intrinsic evil – and child murder is a clear example of such – is ever to be tolerated, for whatever reason, and the fact that the society that once practiced child sacrifice at Las Llamas no longer exists is a cause for satisfaction. Thank God for the conquistadors.

Suposto Padre é Filmado Fazendo SEXO GAY NO ALTAR!!



O Diabo avança mais um passo terrível. Passou de sacrilégio! A Igreja deve ser Consagrada novamente.

Um homem vestido de padre, que pode realmente ser um padre, foi filmado fazendo sexo gay no altar de uma igreja na Irlanda, uma igreja que fica em um bairro rico na cidade de Kildorrey.

Rezemos, o mundo acelera para o domínio amplo do mal.

Vejam texto do Church Militant:

IRISH CHURCH SCANDAL: ‘PRIEST’ DESECRATES ALTAR WITH GAY SEX ACTS


KILDORRERY, Ireland (ChurchMilitant.com) - The latest scandal to rock the Irish Church involves the desecration of a church by a "priest" engaging in gay sex on the high altar. 
The recent incident happened in St. Bartholomew's Church in Kildorrery, Ireland. Images obtained by Church Militant show a man dressed as a priest caught engaging in oral sex and other sexual activity with another man laid across the altar in the church. 
Anthony Murphy, director of Lumen Fidei Institute, a Catholic lay association in Ireland, told Church Militant, "A profane and wicked attack has taken place and I am surprised the bishop has not closed this church for the investigation to take place especially as there is a possibility that the church will need to be reconsecrated." 
"Dressing as a priest and committing acts of grave depravity on a consecrated altar indicate satanic motivation," Deacon Nick Donnelly, former website director of EWTN-Great Britain, explained to Church Militant. "It is a vile attack against Our Lord, Holy Mother Church and the sacred priesthood." 
 
The church is in a wealthy area and is open all day, with parishioners coming and going, thus some conclude either the men enjoyed taking risks and snuck in during its open hours; or otherwise they are staff with ready access to the church and came in after hours.
 
The diocese has asked Garda (Ireland's police force) to investigate, while refusing to comment on the specifics of the case in view of "the criminal nature of the alleged incident." The investigation will look into the accuracy of the photos along with the church where the sacrilege occurred.  
 
A source close to the situation told Church Militant he is asking Bp. William Crean of Cloyne to investigate whether the man disguised in clerical garb is a priest. Suspicions revolve around Fr. Michael Lomasney, whose resignation was accepted by Crean last year owing to revelations of alcoholism.
 
It is alleged that the image involving oral sex was posted on a gay dating app. Two young men, 18 and 19, claim they met this priest through the hook-up site and the priest took them to St. Bartholomew's for sex.
 
The allegation, however, remains anonymous and has not yet been verified. 

Murphy of Lumen Fidei stressed the connection between the sacrilege and the upcoming abortion referendum, which "highlights the level of satanic activity in Ireland at this time and reveals the urgent need for reparation, penance and prayer." 
"I am extremely disappointed that the Bishops of Ireland have not been more active in leading the faithful in this area and encouraging a spiritual campaign of prayer and sacrifice against the dark forces which now encircle Ireland," said Murphy. "Our land is in desperate need for courageous bishops to prophetically teach the moral truths of the Church without fear of favour and until they do the evil will continue to spread."
And Donnelly told Church Militant, "The men who have degraded themselves through these acts of sacrilege have committed a mortal sin, and are in danger of Hell if they die unrepentant."
The diocese of Cloyne declined to say if the church will be reconsecrated following the act of sacrilege, as required by canon law.
Donnelly insisted, "It is imperative that the altar, sanctuary and church are reconsecrated. Now that the church has been identified I hope that the bishop has arranged such a service of reconsecration."

Os Números Recordes de Trump para Economia de Hoje


Hoje foram anunciados números fantásticos da economia americana na gestão Trump:
  • 3,9% de taxa de desemprego (taxa mais baixa em 18 anos); 
  • 6,6% de desemprego entre os negros (número mais baixo da história);
  • 4,8% de desemprego entre os latinos (número mais baixo em 12 anos);
  • Previsão do FMI de crescimento econômico para os Estados Unidos em 2018 é de 2,9%. Maior previsão de crescimento entre praticamente entre todas as principais economias do mundo, com exceção da China e da Índia;
  • Aprovação popular de Trump bate recorde e chega a 51%. 
O  Daily Wire escreveu sobre como esses números de Trump são péssimos para a oposição democrata: 

Meanwhile, Trump's approval rating, despite all the bad press about his personal lawyer Michael Cohen and the Stormy Daniels "hush money," continues to outperform President Obama at the same time in his presidency. Rasmussenreports:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.
Eighty-one percent (81%) of Republicans like the job the president is doing; 75% of Democrats don’t. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 47% approve; 51% disapprove.
The latest figures include 33% of all likely voters who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 40% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -7. (see trends).
The positive trends in the unemployment numbers and Trump's approval is not the only troubling news Democrats have received this week. Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro provides a summary of recent Morning Consult polls suggesting that the "blue wave" might end up having a far redder tint than Democrats hope:
Republicans have serious leads in West Virginia, where incumbent Democrat Joe Manchin trails by 14 points; North Dakota, where incumbent Democrat Heidi Heitkamp trails by 8; Indiana, where incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly trails by 5; Missouri, where incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill trails by 5; Montana, where incumbent Democrat Jon Tester trails by 5; Florida, where incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson is locked in a near-deadlock with Rick Scott; and Pennsylvania and Ohio, where incumbent Democrats Bill Casey and Sherrod Brown are leading by less than two points each, plus Virginia, where Tim Kaine leads by just 3 on the generic ballot. In the best-case scenario for Republicans, then, they could win up to nine additional Senate seats.

Dois Filósofos Gigantes Explicam a Relação Islã e Ocidente: Rémi Brague e Pierre Manent.


Infelizmente, eu não tenho nenhum tempo para traduzir esse artigo. Mas leiam, leiam. O artigo trata de perguntas que Rémi Brague e Pierre Manent (foto acima) responderam sobre o Islã.

Vou colocar aqui apenas a primeira pergunta do artigo, pois o artigo tem dono e tem tradutores. Leiam no site Law and Liberty

Taking Religion Seriously


Editor’s Note: This exchange between French philosophers Pierre Manent and Rémi Brague originally appeared in the January issue of the French journal L’Incorrect as “Rémi Brague & Pierre Manent: Duel de Géants” in January. L’Incorrect is a new conservative-minded journal of ideas in France that challenges the presuppositions of political correctness. We are grateful to the editors of L’Incorrect for permission to reprint this important discussion and to Daniel J. Mahoney and Paul Seaton for their translation.
Islam and the West
Interviewer: Michel Houellebecq recently said in Der Spiegel that in order to resolve the problem of Islam in France, Catholicism would have to become the state religion. What do you think of that suggestion?
Pierre Manent (PM): The idea seems basically on point to me. Not that Catholicism should be recognized as the religion of the State, no one seriously entertains that, but that the role of the Catholic religion in the history of France, but also in the social life of the country, in the consciousness of the country, should be recognized in public forms. However, during the past thirty years we have agreed to espouse the big lie according to which there is no Muslim problem, in fact there can’t be any problems posed by any religion, because we have found the solution to all problems of this sort: laicité or secularism.
In truth, however, depending upon whether there are hundreds of thousands of Muslims or ten million, whether the Catholic churches are full or empty, society will be radically different, even if the secular regime has not changed. We have made ourselves prisoners of a much too restrictive definition of the French regime, by reducing it to the categories of a rather aggressive secularism. We need to enlarge our understanding of ourselves and, in this enlargement, grant an adequate place to the Catholicism that played such a great role in French history and consciousness.  To be sure, that cannot take on an institutional or constitutional form, and that is where Houellebecq’s proposition goes beyond the limits of a reasonable proposal, as he himself knows very well.
This would be an essential element in giving a definite physiognomy and consistency to the community that receives Muslims. Muslims have a very strong collective awareness of their religion, one which nourishes social affects and extremely significant shared mores. One cannot give them as their only destination a society exclusively defined by individual rights, by the neutrality of the State and other institutions vis-à-vis religion, this is to invite them into an empty space, into a wasteland. Whether the society of individuals repulses or tempts them, or both, it does not bring them any new principle of association, it gives them no reason to go beyond a total and complete identification with Islam, in order to participate in a new form of community, or communion. In order for Muslims to be decently received and live happily in France, it is important that they know that they are not in a Muslim nation, that this nation possesses a Christian mark, that Jews play an eminent role here, and that religion does not give commands to the State and the State does not give commands to religion.
We therefore have a complex operation to conduct, which is to persuade the Muslims that we do want to receive them in reasonable numbers, that they do have their place in society, and that this society as a collectivity, this nation as a human association, is not and does not wish to be a Muslim society, but will remain and wants to remain a nation of a Christian mark, where the Jews play an eminent role, and where both the State and the religion embrace a regime of secularism.
Remi Brague (RB): I have not read this interview with Michel Houellebecq, but it is clear that he overstated his real thought. In speaking of Catholicism as a state religion, I believe that he was thinking, above all, not of the State, but of civil society, and of the way in which the nation ought to understand itself, and did understand itself until a rather recent date. In fact it continues to do so.  As Benedetto Croce put it after the war: “We are not able not to call ourselves Christians.” To be sure, Croce understood this in a certain way. As a good Hegelian, he wanted to say that Christianity had fulfilled itself, that one therefore ought to move on to another stage, but while still retaining a certain fidelity to the heritage. Croce, in other words, was a “faithful atheist” (in Italian a “devout atheist”). This awareness would be the way in which the true color of the painting would emerge from behind the overlays with which one wanted to cover it over, which were more or less artificial and even entirely deceptive.
I too believe that it is necessary that we no longer lie, that we cease acting as if the history of France began ex nihilo on July 14, 1789, that we stop telling these lies. I believe this would be a first step to take, to allow Muslims not to imagine that they enter into a void. Pierre Manent employed the wonderful image of a “wasteland”:  when one is in a wasteland, the best thing to do is to remain in one’s vehicle. In order to get Muslims to get out of their vehicles, one must very cordially explain that they are among human beings, that they will have to respect certain rules, just as when one is invited to take mint tea in Morocco.
I speak of actual Muslims, men and women of flesh and blood, who have with Islam a relationship that is as complex and nuanced as Christians, and those of Christian tradition, have with their own religion. I do not speak of the Islam which is presented as a system of civilization, “keys to everything in hand,” which in principle is capable of determining the right way of conducting oneself in all circumstances, including how to dress, do one’s hair, bathe, and comport oneself in family life.  Here there is a double difficulty, which Pierre Manent addresses in his book. Islam is not another religion that enters into a civilization, but a civilization that enters into another civilization.
Moreover, as I argued in a book that recently appeared, the word “religion” itself is deceptive. We have the habit of conceiving religion on the model of Christianity.  Islam would be a sort of Christianity, with some things added and some things taken away, but whose list is fairly easy to come up with. In fact, however, I believe we distort the phenomenon of Islam, because in a Christian regime we are not at all accustomed to follow rules of conduct that claim to be derived from the religion, and which are other than those of common morality. This is a rather exceptional peculiarity of Christianity, one we have a hard time seeing, because we take it for granted. Christianity does not ask men to do anything other than what the most prosaic morality requires of them. It does not have any rules for clothing, no rules for what to eat.

Robert Spencer: "Martinho Lutero é o Pioneiro na Sanitização do Islã"



No vídeo acima, Robert Spencer, um dos maiores especialistas em Islã do mundo, dá uma entrevista para John Cardillo sobre seu novo livro, The History of Jihad: from Muhammad to ISIS (História da Jihad: De Maomé ao Estado Islâmico).

Não vou traduzir palavra por palavra, apenas relatarei o que Spencer disse:

1) Ele começa dizendo que o livro faz um histórico completo da história da jihad desde Maomé, realçando não apenas os pontos mais conhecidos, como os ataques da jihad contra a Europa, mas também outros, como as sangrentas jihads na Índia;

2) Também disse que o livro desfaz alguns mitos, como o mito de que os muçulmanos trataram pacificamente os cristãos e judeus quando dominaram boa parte da Espanha.(do século 8 ao século 15);

3) Finalmente, perguntado sobre como começou processo de sanitização do Islã que temos hoje em que muitos dizem que o Islã é uma religião de paz. Spencer responde que a culpa é de Martinho Lutero. Lutero iniciou a sanitização.

No período que Lutero fazia seus ataques contra a Igreja Católica, o Império Otomano muçulmano atacava a Europa, e Lutero condenou os ataques contra o império Otomano dizendo que o Papa era pior que os muçulmanos, queria juntar forças contra a Igreja Católica. Ele é pioneiro na ideia de que os muçulmanos são pacíficos que não se deve preocupar com eles. Posteriormente, com os avanços do Otomanos contra a Alemanha, Lutero mudou de ideia e disse que os Otomanos deveriam ser enfrentados. Os britânicos espalharam a mesma ideia de Lutero quando se aliaram ao Império Otomano no século 19. Até que chegamos no George W. Bush que logo em seguida aos ataques de 11 de setembro disse a mesma coisa: muçulmanos são pacíficos.

Pesquisa: Imensa Maioria dos Europeus Detesta a Imigração em Massa.


Segundo alguns, como o Papa Francisco, a maioria (55%) do europeus não deve ter coração. Na Suécia, o povo sem coração é ainda maior, 73% dos suecos detestam a imigração em massa. Os suecos sofrem o extremo da estupidez do esquerdismo politicamente correto ateu, eles estão vendo o resultado em estupros e perda de liberdade democrática. Na França, 64% detestam a imigração em massa, e na Alemanha 63%.

São dados de uma pesquisa recente. E essa pesquisa segue outra que mostrou que 78% dos europeus querem fronteiras mais fechadas à imigração.

A União Europeia É a maior incentivadora dessa imigração.

Acho que União Europeia vai partir para o controle total da democracia (totalitarismo) se não o povo vai destruí-la. É o que já acontece.

Vejam relato do site Breibart.

In EU-Wide Poll, Majority Think Migrant Integration ‘Unsuccessful’, Figure Rises to 73 Per Cent in Sweden


A European Commission poll has found that a strong majority of people in France, Germany, and Sweden believe the integration of migrants has failed in their country.

People in all 28 member states were asked: “Generally speaking, how successful or not is the integration of most immigrants living in [your country].”
Overall, across the open borders bloc, 55 per cent of people said integration it is going badly and 39 per cent said it had been a success, according to the survey commissioned by the European Union’s (EU) unelected executive branch.
In Sweden, the picture was bleak, with just 24 per cent of respondents saying they thought integration was going well, and a shocking 73 per cent saying it has gone badly.
In Germany, only 31 per cent of people think integration has gone well, with 63 per cent thinking it is unsuccessful. In France, it was a similar situation with 64 per cent of people thinking it has been unsuccessful and 27 per cent saying otherwise.
In Britain, the picture was slightly more positive, with 55 per cent of respondents saying it has been successful compared to 36 per cent who said it was unsuccessful.
In Italy, the situation was worse than Germany, but better than Sweden, with 63 saying integration was going bad and just 27 agreeing it was going well.
In low-immigration Hungary, respondents were a little more optimistic than the Germans, with the latter’s government adopting an open border approach and the former’s erecting a border wall and campaigning strongly against mass migration.
Marginally fewer Hungarians (32 per cent) said integration was going badly than in Angela Merkel’s Germany and significantly less (55 per cent) said it was going badly.
The survey was carried out by TNS Political & Social network in the 28 states between the 21st and 30th of October last year and published in April. Around 28,000 people were questioned.
The revelations of negative attitudes towards the success of integration across Europe comes shortly after another pan-European poll which found 78 per cent across the continent wanted tighter border control. Separate BBC research released last week reported Europe as the most divided continent in the world, with immigration the largest source of division.
