Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome (0)
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...

On February 1, the Christendom College Republicans announced they had withdrawn from the College Republican National Committee (CRNC) and the College Republican Federation of Virginia (CRFV) after the CRFV voted overwhelmingly to add sexual orientation as a protected class to the chapter's constitution.

REMNANT COMMENT: Go Crusaders! And it's not just because I'm an alumnus, either. This school is doing a lot of things right. They accept no state aid, their faculty and student body are 100% Catholic, they’re proud to be Catholic first, and now this. Plus they're adding more TLMs, too. (Add one more on Sunday mornings and, overnight, you'll become the premier Catholic college in the world.)
Christendom represents the future of Catholic higher education. Move over, Notre Dame. A real Catholic school, committed to restoring all things in Christ, is about to blow by you like you're sitting up on jacks!

I'm told that Super Dave Armstrong is attacking The Remnant over at Patheos. Having never read anything written by this man in the past, I see no point in starting now. As I see it, since nobody else reads Super Dave he surely won't mind if we dont' either.
I'd just like to say that, even though he's now attacking us with his random word generator, I still think Super Dave was pretty funny back in the day.
In fact, long live Super Dave! And don't go changin', Dave, to try to please us. We love you just the way you were.
Super Dave Armstrong Takes the Plunge, Attacks The RemnantBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
This just in from Catholic World Report: "Pope Francis’ visit to Mexico, which began on February 12, has been received with all of the fanfare expected for a papal visit from one of the most Catholic nations in the world. Just as Mexicans warmly welcomed John Paul II and Benedict XVI, so they are also giving a very enthusiastic reception to the current pontiff, who is making a point of focusing on the country’s suffering lower classes. However, in his rhetorical enthusiasm for the poor and downtrodden, the pope is taking a decidedly different tone from that of his predecessors, one that appears to show sympathy for the region’s controversial tradition of liberation theology, as well as other ideologically-charged political causes....
Catholic World Report Nails It: What is Pope Francis Doing? FeaturedBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
On the very day he took possession of the Chair of Peter, Pope Benedict XVI declared his intention to subsume his personal ideas and predilections to the office of the Vicar of Christ:
The Pope is not an absolute monarch whose thoughts and desires are law. On the contrary: the Pope's ministry is a guarantee of obedience to Christ and to his Word. He must not proclaim his own ideas, but rather constantly bind himself and the Church to obedience to God's Word, in the face of every attempt to adapt it or water it down, and every form of opportunism….

This from David Limbaugh: "Much of the establishment’s criticism of Donald Trump comes from its failure to comprehend the reasons for his soaring popularity.
"Establishment types seem untroubled by the problems facing America, so they can’t understand the urgency that fathered Trump’s rise. Minor adjustments to the Hindenburg’s dining room menu just aren’t going to cut it.
"Their overwrought analysis, their hand-wringing and their contemptuousness for Trump betray a disdain not only for Trump but for Americans who recognize the gravity of America’s predicament – and who, in desperation, have turned to Trump for bold action.
"It’s hard to overstate Americans’ concern for the state of the nation. Horrified by President Obama’s Sherman-esque march through America, they are tired of hearing that nothing can be done. They are through with empty promises from establishment politicians." READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: If nothing else, Donald Trump's growing popularity is proof positive that political correctness can be overcome by those who have the guts (and/or the money) to stand up to it. Last night on Hannity, Trump went out of his way to embrace mainstream America, vowing to protect gun rights, abolish Obamacare, deep-six Common Core as his first acts in office, after building his wall on our southern border, of course, and stopping Muslim immigration altogether.
Will he come through on any of those promises? Who knows! But he's having so much fun rattling the cage of the politically correct, mainstream elites in both parties that even long-time holdouts such as Patrick J. Buchanan are egging him on now.
Again, not an endorsement. But Trump's success should at least encourage us to stop being straightjacketed by the PC Gestapo. Those guys are terrified of Trump. Why? Because he can't be bought and he can’t be silenced. And whether that terror is justified or not, the takeaway for the rest of us is to wake up, man up and start fighting back, telling them exactly where they can all get off.
This entire militantly secularist, atheist revolution in politics depends on their ability to silence opposition, to make us go mute out of fear of their raw power. But if we overcome that fear, they lose. And this is why the establishment hates this billionaire entertainer/businessman--he's encouraging the regular folks to stand up and say: "We're just not gonna take it anymore!"
Trump may well be a nutter, but what he's tapping into is anything but nuts. This is going to be fun to watch!
The Establishment Birthed Trump!By: Michael J. Matt | Editor
This from CNSNews.com Although the Catholic Church teaches that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered,” constitute “grave depravity,” and can never “be approved,” the Catholic bishops of New York State “have not taken a position” on past bills and “do not foresee taking a position” on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new order banning private and public health insurers from covering gay conversion therapy for minors.
Cuomo, a Catholic who supports homosexual marriage and abortion, made his announcement about prohibiting health care coverage for conversion (or reparative) therapy on Saturday, Feb. 6. READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: So far this has been the reaction of the brave bishops of New York State:
Cowards such as these clearly do not possess the stuff of which martyrs are made. They’re so busy eliminating hills on which they will not die, that before long they’ll be lying in a barren desert somewhere, dying comfortably in their beds, having never taken a serious stand on anything that matters.
St. John Fisher must be rolling over in his grave.
N.Y. Catholic Bishops Won’t Oppose Gov. Cuomo’s Rule To Stop Health Coverage for Gay Conversion TherapyBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
Editor’s Note: This article was first published in The Remnant in 2010. Since Pope Francis has now pulled back the curtain to further expose the radical coup d’état that has been underway in the Church for a long time, however, I feel certain that thinking Catholics are more disposed than ever to acknowledge the “progressive” innovations of the past half century as self-inflicted assaults on the Bride of Christ. The attack on the Mass has been well documented in these pages, but the “reform” of the Rosary was no less revolutionary in its audacity. Codified by St. Pius V at the Council of Trent, the Rosary’s traditional form, given to us by Our Lady herself through St. Dominic, is what it is for reasons that far outweigh any human aspirations to add elements to it, no matter how pious those elements may be.

It’s early morning, still dark in Palmer Woods. The street lights are on, shining on the glaze of frost that covers the ground. There’s not a sound in my writing room, but the silence won’t last. Soon the rumble of engines and the thud of wheels on the pavement will break the quiet dawn
The neighbors are going to work. The few children who live in the great old houses will be shuttled off to school. An hour more, and the houses will be empty.

"For the best part of two decades, Mena appeared at parishes or prayer groups in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Stockton, Fresno and Orange counties... He showed up at St. Mary parish in Fontana more than five years ago and celebrated mass on a few occasions, a spokesman for the Diocese of San Bernardino said."
REMNANT COMMENT: You don't say! I wonder what would happen if a SSPX priest in cassock were to turn up at St. Mary parish in Fontana and announce that he'd be saying the Mass and hearing a few confessions this afternoon. No problem, right? Yeah, right!
I guess this nutter appeared to be in full communion with Rome -- so whatevs.
Not a lot of oversight going on in the Novus Ordo these days. So long as you're not a traditionalist you can pretty much do whatever the heck you want.
