Horrific evil

Horrific evil

This is beyond description: global trafficking of children in the sex trade.

The bits about Interpol agent David Race Bannon (wasn’t that a cartoon character?) seem almost fantastic. He was supposedly a member of a secret team of Interpol agents who had a license to kill those who trafficked in children. He’s apparently remorseful and he says something similar to what I have previously written about the unfortunate tendency to characterize those who commit monstrous sin as being monsters themselves, rather than a sinful human beings.

“People ask me so frequently how I could possibly feel guilty about killing this filth killing this filthesses it, it is suppressed. Nobody can force him to set up a parish or assign a priest to it. In the end, these people either decide to remain Catholic or end up in schism; there’s no middle ground.

It looks like they’re headed for schism. Just look at these excerpts from the article.

They have switched the church utilities over to the name of one of the parishioners to avoid having them shut off by the archdiocese.

... “The end will be our choice, not the archdiocese,” said Fiona Keating of Sudbury, a preschool teacher with three children, who plans to take part in the vigil. “We’re not done with the building yet. I don’t feel that was our last service.”

  • Where oh where are they getting the blood? The American Red Cross can’t even guarantee you won’t get some disease from a transfusion but at least they try to screen it. People who live that lifestyle aren’t the safest bet – I guess that’s part of the allure – risk.

  • the local Unitarians in Stamford have a significant number of “Wiccans” in their congregation. Fortunately, when the Cornerstone Church of God people take over the Church in the PM, they blast out the demons with that great gospel music!

    and check out the recent goth girl dell commercial…

  • I would encourage all to pray for the end of these stupid vigils.  And for Bishop O’Malley.  It’s easy to criticize him for not responding to Kerry and other situations that affect Catholics in the diocese, and he may indeed be guilty (God only knows), but nevertheless he must be under huge amounts of pressure and stress right now.  May God give him the strength and courage to carry out his ministry faithfully in all ways! 

  • When this thing we call civilization finally collapses (we’re on the way to that in slow motion), your mind will be boggled at the variety of evils people can come up with. 

    In third world countries they know this.  They are jealous of our *magic* for success and if they manage to destroy/dilute/bastardize our culture, they will be shocked because it will look even more like *magic* in retrospect when it is gone, even from us.  If they dress us down somehow and get to the bottom of us, they will be able to see nothing but the Christian us, whom they hate.  It will confound them.

    Only a few of us will still carry what it is—the so called *magic*—-Christians.  Because Christianity and the culture it fosters is the *magic* which isn’t magic at all, but the good that comes from God.  Our legacy from the Catholic church and Charlemagne.

    When the hate fades, and the despair builds, we will be back, just like the first time—IF the world is still here.

They don’t go biting people on the neck, but they obtain human blood and consume it. Some of them wear fake fangs, while some go whole hog and have their own teeth surgically altered.

    I don’t know.  This sounds more stupid than anything else to me (a reversal of the Mark Shea motto… Being stupid makes you sin.) 

    I know lots of people who got pierced and tattooed in an effort to come across as more interesting, and the more bizarre they made themselves look, the more dull I thought them to be.  Because obviously they have to go to extremes to look like there’s anything there. 

    It’s the old childish “Look at me!  Look at me!”

    It’s not a lifestyle.  It’s an act.  People are doing this just to try to shock.  I’m not shocked, I’m disgusted.  And again, my first reaction is “Stupid.”
