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!

A sobering and chilling inside look at the workings of the Communist Party USA in the early to mid 20th century

School of Darkness, by Dr. Bella Dodd, is a thoroughly riveting account of a young girl who was born into a nominally Catholic family and hungered for meaning and direction, only to get sucked into the empty, destructive, and ultimately self-destructive, Communist path. The Party chewed her up and spit her out when she began to realize that it was not what it pretended to be. She dared to ask questions, which was unforgivable. Bella Dodd was a true believer in the Cause for many years only to realize that she had given her life to a phantasm. Nothing about Communism is real. Except its aim of total domination and its resulting (and inevitable) soul-crushing despair. But the Lord is always searching for His lost sheep and no one is beyond the reach of His helping hand. (Links to the ebook and to the Angelico Press edition at the end of this post.)

Bella was living in a “world of men who were determined to create new types of human beings who would conform to the blueprint of the world they confidently expected to control.” (Page 162. See note below for more.)

After immersing myself in that tale of unions, violence, and strikes, delusions and deceits, nihilism and other things I’m not used to, I felt shaken and sad. Glad that Bella’s story ended well. (Imagine receiving instruction in the faith from–oh, wait. If you don’t already know, I don’t want to spoil it for you.) Sad that so many thousands, tens of thousands–who knows how many?–were and will be so profoundly misled. But my study of this nightmarish cult of the collective has had one good result: my studies of the apparitions at Fatima have received new energy and urgency. I am more convinced than ever that Fatima holds the key to defeating Marxism. And that the only remedy for godlessness is God Himself. (I’d like to take credit for that wonderful line, but I think I read it recently. I’ll let you know when I track down the source.)

Update: Silly me! The line is from School of Darkness, though not the way I wrote it. Here’s the proper quote with context.

 “Those devoted to progressive education and to preparing youth to live in the “new socialist world” are abstractly sure of what they want, but they seem not to know that they work with human beings. Aside from teaching that children must learn to get along with other children, no moral or natural law standards are set. There is no word about how our children are to find the right order of harmonious living. I, too, had to learn by hard experience that you cannot cure a sick soul with more buildings or more playgrounds. These are important, but they are not enough. Abraham Lincoln, schooled in a one-room log cabin, received from education what all the athletic fields and laboratories cannot give. All his speeches reflected his love for his Creator. He knew that God is the cure for godlessness.” Bella Dodd, School of Darkness, end of page 136.

Much more on this and related subjects in the works.
