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...
My Friends in Christ,
It has now been one week since the diabolical Supreme Court decision which now makes same-sex marriage a universal right for Americans. How ironic that in the days leading up to this national holiday that celebrates the Independence of the United States, the highest court in the land should abuse its power in such a blatant act against true human liberty and rights as determined by God.
None of us should be surprised by this ruling, as it is consistent with the sorts of legal determinations that have been made by this and other courts for decades, not only here in America but in many other nations and places as well.

REMNANT COMMENT: If the Synod on the Family goes as we fear it well might, the one silver lining will be a massive unification of sincere Catholics all over the world. The Remnant is not interested in told-ya-so polemics. The souls (and perhaps even the lives) of all of our children are at stake now.
If we're to survive the coming purge of all things Catholic and if we're to keep the Faith, we need numbers, NOT vindication. The Remnant longs for the day when we can all say, without the slightest whiff of bitterness or animosity: We're all traditional Catholics now!
On this week’s Vortex, Michael Voris, possibly the most committed critic of the Society of St. X on the Internet today, informs his fans that:
"From the bogus visions of Medjugorje to the schismatic existence of the SSPX to the mad ramblings of dissidents in seminaries and Catholic universities, Rome rarely slaps down anything. And the problem is that as long as something isn't condemned, the followers or adherents of said issue can say, "Well, Rome hasn't said we're condemned, so we are okay.”
Michael Matt compares the rabid approach to the Society of St. Pius X on the part of CMTV to that of the very mainstream Catholic Herald this week, and asks one simple question: What is Michael Voris really up to?
“The real secret of magic lies in the performance.” ~David Copperfield
Jeffrey Sachs, the UN’s Mr. Sustainable Development, returns for his 6th repeat environmental performance at the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Social Science (PASS), as the master illusionist of the UN Sustainable Development shell game.
On July 22nd, Sachs will perform his magic at the Vatican’s latest leftist political convention for radical politicians, like NY Mayor Bill DeBlasio (friend of Jeff Sachs) and Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown. Several other U.S. Mayors are expected to attend this political theatre as the Vatican confers its final blessing on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Even in the very depths of the worst possible of worst-case scenarios of crisis in the Catholic Church, denial is not helpful. The crocodile does not care how tightly we close our eyes as it eats us.
For some time now, with an exponentially growing audience of new and deeply alarmed Catholics, Mike Matt and I have discussed the need to restate the basic points of the Traditionalist position, to locate it in the context of the history of the Church over the last century and our current crisis. To do this, I have been revisiting some old books. Even for someone who read my way out of Novusordoist conservatism and into the Traditionalist position, it can be extremely valuable to review what brought us to this dire condition.
Article 9 of the 21 article agreement establishes cooperation “on the protection of maternal and child health, including reproductive health, promotion of family values and prevention of abortion.” The agreement includes joint actions with medical institutions for the “creation of crisis pregnancy centers at hospitals with the participation of psychologists and participation of representatives of religious organizations of the Russian Orthodox Church in advising women who are planning to terminate the pregnancy, in medical institutions” and for the provision of space for “posting information of religious organizations of the Russian Orthodox Church on the stands in medical institutions.”
Meanwhile, The Russian State Duma is considering legislation on abortion that includes limiting funding for abortion to only those that are considered medically necessary. The bill is designed to help reduce the number of Russian children destroyed through the violence of abortion. READ MORE HERE
Remnant Comment: What is going on here? As America falls further into the pit of depravity, Godlessness, baby killing and the destruction of the family, the "Evil Empire" is rising up as the last best hope of the world. What the heck?
“The tongue cannot claim to be ignorant of what the teeth are doing.” ~African Proverb.
The battle continues to rage between the Vatican’s population control experts who support Pope Francis’ environmental agenda, and the Catholic pro life movement. The Pontifical Academy for Social Sciences (PASS) serves as the battleground, where its Chancellor, Bishop Sanchez Sorondo continues to defend the Academy’s reliance on virulent abortion proponents, like Jeffrey Sachs of the Director of the UN Sustainable Development Network. Bishop Sorondo defended the choice of his experts by stating that they were participating “on the questions of climate change and modern slavery” and that abortion was not mentioned during the conference. His weak defense is reminis cent of the African proverb, “Much silence makes a mighty noise.”
Among the Catholic faithful the conviction grows that the ongoing crisis in the Church and the drastic moral decline of our civilization have entered a critical new phase which represents a turning point in the history of the world.
In the Church, a Synod on the Family has devolved into a battle to defend the indissolubility of marriage from an attack within, pitting cardinal against cardinal and bishop against bishop. The Synod has produced a midterm relatio, approved by the Pope himself, which calls for the admission of divorced and remarried Catholics to Holy Communion on a “case by case” basis without any renunciation of adulterous relations, contrary to the explicit teaching of Pope John Paul II in line with the perennial discipline of the Church.  The same document speaks of “valuing” the “homosexual orientation” while recognizing the “precious support for the life of the partners” supposedly provided by “homosexual unions.”  Bishop Athanasius Schneider rightly observes that “[t]his is the first time in Church History that such a heterodox text was actually published as a document of an official meeting of Catholic bishops under the guidance of a pope, even though the text only had a preliminary character.” 
Our friend Carol Glatz reports:
"Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox must pray together and work hand-in-hand helping the poor, Pope Francis told thousands of Catholic charismatics and members of other Christian communities.
If the devil “unites us in death, who are we to divide ourselves in life?” he said, adding that all Christians can and must pray together, as they have all received the same baptism and are striving to follow Christ." The pope said Christian unity was the work of the Holy Spirit, which meant Christians need to pray together in a “spiritual ecumenism, an ecumenism of prayer.”
Does Hell exist? Were Adam and Eve real people? Was Moses real? Did he part the Red Sea? Did he write the first five books of the Bible? What exactly are we Catholics allowed to believe now that the wolves have "updated" our Church?
It was midmorning. My husband and I were driving along I-75 when an old, slightly beat-up truck passed us on the right. There was a sign nailed to it—a flat white board with big black letters. We laughed when we read it. It was so true. God is great. Beer is good. People are crazy.
A friend told me later that the words were from a country music song by Billy Currington. The sign wasn’t original, but that didn’t change the impact of those three short sentences. The world has indeed gone mad. This isn’t hyperbole. I’m a mental health professional.1 I know crazy when I see it.
Things are not as they should be.
