mgok_reillyYes, I saw the ruling. I wasn’t surprised by it, saw it coming. This has been in the works for a long time. Many years. Decades, even. From the 60’s onward (though, of course, it began long before then) this has been in the works. Read School of Darkness (which doesn’t mention homosexuality but reveals the marxist machine behind many movements). Read Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior Is Changing Everything. Read After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90’s (if you can find a used copy for a reasonable price or in a library). Read Rules for Radicals. Read about Cultural Marxism and the Frankfurt School (see related videos also). Listen to Psychology: Friend or Foe (CD or MP3) or read We Overcame Their Tradition, We Overcame Their Faith by Dr. William Coulson. Also see video below.

All of these things are interconnected. All of these movements and trends have led us to where we are now. To combat our enemy, we must know our enemy. We have been complacent or ignorant or asleep for TOO LONG. Wake up, wise up, and RISE UP, Church, NOW.

Psychologist Dr. William Coulson explains what he and fellow psychologist Carl Rogers did to Catholic religious houses, and more, in the 60’s. What they needed was holiness and spiritual training and discipline. What they got was “self-esteem” and not an authentic understanding of the human person as taught by the Church. What a mess. And look where we are today: vocations dropped to almost nothing in those houses that opted for false spirituality; vocations booming in houses that kept or returned to authentic Catholic spirituality and RELIGION. Yes, the R word. RELIGION: That by which we are bound in covenant to and united with God, and without which we have a vague, amorphous and all too often imaginary relationship without any basis at all in reality.

Do I feel strongly about this? I do, but this is not about feelings or opinions or desires or wishes. This is about reality, about the world of the real versus the world of really stupid wishful thinking. The world IS, God IS, and all the playing with words that humans can do will never change reality. Contrary to all the new age nonsense so many have imbibed, we do NOT make our own reality. Reality is a given and we receive it and deal with it, or we can butt our heads against it which won’t hurt reality but can break our hard little heads. Looking around me, I see a lot of people who prefer to bash their own heads against the brick wall of reality instead of learning to see the world as it really is.

Divine Mercy
Jesus, we trust in You!

But I also see many people who are more spiritually aware than that. We are praying for those who are obstinate and who are determined to harm themselves and others. We are praying for those who insist on living in a way that may bring some sort of temporary pleasure but can never bring lasting happiness. And can certainly never bring eternal joy.

By the way, once one accepts reality as it is (which does not mean giving in to sin or giving in to despair), the brick wall aspect of it drops away and what is revealed is beautiful beyond words. Is there terror in the world, and sin, and horror, and death? Yes. But there is also joy and love and friendship and family and creativeness and intellect and spirit and heart and music and so many things I can’t even think of without feeling overwhelmed by tears at the beauty of it all. The world would be such a different place if people gave themselves over to real Love. And the One Who is Love Itself.

For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Amen!

Last night I wrote a post about LiveAction and the Saul Alinsky book they recommended, Rules for Radicals. I have to admit, even after reading Why Live Action did right and why we all should know that by Dr. Peter Kreeft, I still object to Alinsky’s ideas and to anyone in the pro-life movement using them.

There’s been talk on the internet and in some of the media recently about the tactics being used by Lila Rose and her group, LiveAction, “a new-media movement for life!” As glad as I am to see Planned Parenthood exposed for the morally bankrupt organization they are, I’m not proud to see anyone on the pro-life side use morally questionable tactics to achieve this much-desired goal. After all, the ends do not justify the means. I am also loathe to see anyone using tactics recommended by the reprehensible Saul Alinsky in his Rules for Radicals, which is one long diatribe against morality if ever there was one. But perhaps this is not surprising given that until just a few months ago, LiveAction was recommending Alinsky’s book on their website. Continue reading

Back in February of this year I removed the links to LiveAction.org from my site because they listed Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky on their recommended books page. And when I contacted LiveAction via email and carried on a brief correspondence with their director of media, he insisted that they had thoroughly vetted the book and still wanted to recommend it. And, worse, he said that they used many of its methods. (:O) After a few exchanges wherein I expressed to him that I was only more horrified after hearing from him than I was before I contacted him, I left it at that and removed their links from my links page. Over the ensuing months, I would pop in from time to time to see if the book was still listed. And it was. But tonight, Oct 5 2010, I peeked in for a look-see and the book is gone! So I’m renewing the links to LiveAction.org. See the Recommended Books section at LiveAction. Continue reading

Rules for RadicalsMost Catholics probably don’t even know who Saul Alinsky was. Or that his infiltration of the Church and corruption of priests (not all of them, just a lot of them!) was accomplished decades ago. And his legacy is still going strong—and growing! We need to let people know about this. Spread the word about the truth of Alinsky and his rules for radical priests and religious! (By the way, most of the ones who were seriously corrupted by Alinsky left the priesthood before they died. Most priests are good, devoted men and I love our priests!) Continue reading

Rules for RadicalsI’m tired of hearing folks saying that Obama doesn’t get it, that he doesn’t understand what he’s doing, that he doesn’t see what is happening or where he is taking the country. Oh, I say, but he does. He does see what’s happening. He does know that people hate his ideas. He does know that he is wrecking our economy.

And that is exactly what he was aiming for all along. Continue reading

It’s been a while since I’ve written about Saul Alinsky and his book, Rules for Radicals, the apparent playbook for our brave new administration with its motto, “Change We Can Deceive In”. And I have to tell you, I’m forcing myself to do this. I’m forcing myself to open this book again and read from it because I promised you I would share with you what I had found and I’m keeping that promise. But I don’t want to. I don’t want to read any more of it. But it’s important that you know what it says. Because it’s important that you know what is going on in Washington. In our states, our cities and towns. In our colleges and universities. You have organizers in your community? Do you think that’s a good thing? Do you know that “organizer” is a code word and does not mean what you think it means? Do you know that “Change We Can Believe In” is a slogan that could have come right out the pages of Alinsky’s book?
