RTV Covers Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome
Remnant TV was in Rome this past week covering the Vatican’s clerical sexual abuse summit on the “protection of minors”. It seemed a dismal assignment, to be sure, but the reason it was necessary for The Remnant to be in the Eternal City was so we could throw in with our traditional Catholic allies in Rome who’d organized an act of formal resistance to the Vatican sham summit.
Going in, we all knew that the ultimate goal of the summit was to establish child abuse—not rampant homosexuality in the priesthood—as the main cause of a crisis in the Catholic Church which now rivals that of the Protestant Revolt. (Remnant TV coverage of this event as well as the Vatican summit itself, can be found on The Remnant’s YouTube channel, and for your convenience is laid out below:View items...
First Lady of American Conservatism, Phyllis Schlafly (RIP)-- faithful Catholic and lifelong foe of judicial activism--endorsed Donald Trump. Now why would she do that?
(A Remnant Exclusive)
Conservatives need to get their act together to prevent Hillary Clinton from claiming the presidency. A unified Republican Party can win this election. The latest Los Angeles Times-USC poll puts Donald Trump up one point. With three weeks until election day, the GOP ticket is within striking distance of pulling off an upset.
"This brief which destroys the Company of Jesus is nothing other than an isolated and particular judgment, pernicious, reflecting little honor on the Papal tiara and deleterious to the glory of the Church and to the glory and propagation of the orthodox (i.e. Catholic) faith….Holy Father, it is not possible for me to commit the Clergy to the acceptance of the said brief." - Archbishop Christophe de Beaumont of Paris to Pope Clement XIV
Indulgence in a fetish is a dangerous habit, blocking, as it does, access to the full reality of the given aspect of life that it masquerades, but escape from its influence is immensely difficult. The fetish in question here is “the papal fetish”; the obsessive insistence upon the orthodoxy and goodness of all statements and actions coming from a reigning Pontiff, regardless of every indication that the opposite may actually be true. And, as with fetishes in general, this papal fetish blocks access to the full appreciation of the glorious purpose that the Papacy really has, preferring a mess of willful pottage to the banquet of truth it is meant to offer to the faithful.
There's a Reason the World Loves Pope Francis
So, here's the headline: Pope rips ‘hypocrisy’ of Christians who reject refugees, says proselytism is ‘venom’ Nope, it's not The Remnant's. This time it's CatholicCulture.org. But, wait! There's more:
Pope Francis assailed Christians who oppose the acceptance of refugees, and those who seek to convince others of the truth of their faith, in remarks to a visiting German group on October 13.
Breaking away from his prepared remarks, the Pope said told the ecumenical group that he is appalled by “the contradiction of those who want to defend Christianity in the West, and, on the other hand, are against refugees and other religions.” He also spoke of his distaste for proselytism.
“It’s not right to convince someone of your faith,” the Pope said. “Proselytism is the strongest venom against the path of ecumenism.” READ HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: I just can't wait for Jimmy Akin to give us 11 things to know and share about why this seemingly confusing and angry papal rant is, in fact, a brilliant Catholic answer.
Perhaps, Jimmy shares the Pope's contention that something must be done about all those millions and millions of Catholics out there who, every day, go about foisting themselves on non-Catholics, cajoling them to convert, terrorizing them with medieval claims that the jaws of hell yawn wide before the unsuspecting non-Catholic who refuses to convert.
This intimidating "proselytism," so characteristic of modern Catholics, is a huge problem. YUGE! And I for one am happy the pope is finally tackling it. It's what I call "guts poping". But Jimmy will explain it far better than I can.

Chris Ferrara joins Michael Matt down in the catacombs to discuss Trump, Hillary and a Catholic's duty to defend the common good, even in a post-Christian democracy.
This just in from LawNewz:
"....interesting emails from the archives of Colin Powell’s Gmail account... were leaked en masse on Tuesday night. What stands out is that they relate to his experiences attending the secretive, shadowy Bohemian Grove encampment this past July. Bohemian Grove was described in a 2011 Washington Post article by Elizabeth Flock as a gathering of “some of the richest and most powerful men in the world gather at a 2,700 acre campground in Monte Rio, Calif., for two weeks of heavy drinking, super-secret talks, druid worship, […] and other rituals.” Only one of these rituals, shot by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, exists on video.The theoretical end game of the retreat is “to escape the ‘frontier culture,’ or uncivilized interests, of common men.” Members and guests reportedly include former Vice President Dick Cheney, Walter Cronkite, Clint Eastwood, and most Republican presidents since Dwight Eisenhower. So it’s no surprise that Powell is on their list of elites, but what is surprising is how willing he is to dish on the meetings.
This email, sent from Powell to former Canadian Attorney General Peter MacKay on July 24th, shows Powell talking about how the Bohemian Grove attendees in general are planning to vote in the upcoming presidential election (screenshots at the bottom of this post):
"Peter, I am back from the Bohemian Grove. Surprise, surprise, I sat next to Stephen Harper a couple of times and had a nice discussion. Grove attendees know that Trump is a disaster. Most will vote against, but quite a few will not vote for Hillary and will vote for a third party candidate. Strange doings down here. Otherwise all is well with the Powells. We’ll sneak away for a few days in August. Of course I’d love to see you. Let me know your dates. I told Stephen that you seemed quite content in your new place in life. All the best, Colin" READ ARTICLE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: Perhaps the most encouraging thing about the deeply flawed Donald Trump is the basket of powerful deplorable that hate him.
CNN is shocked, SHOCKED, to find out that Donald Trump
said some bad things years ago.
Well, isn’t this something! While we all wait for Commissioner Gordon to call an emergency meeting of Gotham City Council, we sit in stunned disbelief over the cartoonish hypocrisy of the media. These wretched human beings spend 24/7 ramming their pro-sodomy, pro-abortion, pro-perversion agenda down the throats of the American people, and now here they are pretending to faint away in horror over Donald Trump’s potty-mouthed locker-room banter eleven years ago.
Cigars, Beer, Debate, Discussion

Next Tuesday. October 11, 2016, the AOTM is proud to welcome:
Ambassador Alan Keyes and Remnant columnist Chris Ferrara
Calling All Christian Men
Its' decision time. What are you going to do in November?
Can Catholics in good conscience vote for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump?
Two conservative Catholic heavyweights
(WARNING: Disturbing Images)
When it comes to far-Left radical voters in this country, single-issue politics is just fine. For them, it’s all about sex, women’s reproductive rights, homosexual marriage and all the rest. But when it comes to God-fearing conservative voters, single-issue politics is mocked as the stuff of 'rubes and retards',especially when that issue is abortion. Why is that?
Michael Matt speaks in defense of the unborn and the urgent need for politicians to speak up for them and their rights not only to vote but to LIVE -- today more than ever.

This just in from the NYSUN.com:
"In another blow to American global leadership the Obama administration is abdicating control of the Internet. Countries that loathe freedom are gaining more influence over what you’ll be able to find on the web.
America started the Internet and from its inception served as its guardian, guaranteeing that virtually any person or group, no matter how controversial, could add a website to the worldwide network. But on October 1, the Obama administration surrendered American oversight to a multinational organization, ICANN, which stands for Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.
ICANN will have sole power to grant web addresses — or deny them, essentially banning sites from the Internet. If a site doesn’t have an address from ICANN, you won’t be able to find it. READ STORY HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: Pure Orwellianism! Perhaps this will help Remnant website visitors understand why we have been adamant for 21 years that we will not give up on The Remnant's newsprint edition--the most expensive and time-consuming aspect of our apostolate. Obviously, it's only a matter of time before "hate sites" like ours will be shut down by the New World Disordered ones.
Back in January of 2013, for example, I reiterated my concern over the future of the Internet:
There is no question that newsprint is a dying model. There is no question that newsprint must survive. Contradiction? Not at all. Once the Internet becomes completely hostile to all things Catholic the plug on the Catholic press will be pulled—literally overnight. Something must survive in order to keep the Catholic press alive after that happens. It will be physical magazines, books and newspapers, plain and simple. To survive, the Catholic press will have to go back to the future.
I guess we weren't so paranoid after all. And once Americans send the Demonic Duo (Bill and Hillary) back to the White House for another 8 years, just imagine the acceleration of Orwellian projects such as these that's in store for us.
The Remnant has been quietly building up its old and out-of-date newsprint edition for years, absolutely anticipating this totalitarian action on the part of the Christophobes in Washington and beyond. In fact, thanks be to God, The Remnant’s print edition now supports itself with little to no outside advertising revenue. The Remnant goes to press every two weeks on the strength of paid subscription revenue and small donations from you. Not bad for an old dinosaur, right?
With God's help, The Remnant's not going anywhere, but will continue to oppose the evil agenda of these Christophobes for as long as God gives us air to breathe.
Please join us in making sure that the insufferable Obama and Grandma Clinton never succeed in completely silencing the Catholic press apostolate.
