The word ‘Islam’ seems to have become by now, especially on the rightwing social spectrum, an all-encompassing code word for non-White residents and migrants. Predictably, the so-called asymmetric or hybrid wars waged by the US and EU against the ISIS are creating a widespread, albeit still muted hatred against Arabs and Muslims among the majority of US and EU White Christians. Scenes of ISIS terror attacks in Europe and the US are additionally provoking feelings of hostility toward non-Whites, with more and more Whites calling privately for the expulsion of Muslims from Europe and the US.

The continuing mass arrival of non-European migrants into Europe and the US, accompanied by almost daily scenes of ISIS terror attacks — real or foiled — cannot be examined from the perspective of the religion only. Understanding the waves of non-White, largely Muslim migrants, as well as ISIS terror attacks, requires different angles of analysis, with each leading to a different and often mutually exclusive conclusion.

Undoubtedly, the easiest method to explain away the mass inflow of Arabs and African migrants in the West is by laying the blame on catastrophic conditions in their war-torn countries ruled by clannish and despotic rulers and plagued in addition by ISIS and Taliban bombers. However, blaming lower-IQ Arab and African migrants, or Muslim radicals as the only cause of political instability in Europe and the USA is a form of self-delusion.

The root causes of African and Arab mass migrations to Europe and the USA can be traced back to the grand scheme on how to reshape the Middle East and North Africa, doctored up in the 90s of the previous century by US neoconservatives. Later, in the early 2000s, as the first “pro-democracy” domestic upheavals started boiling in North Africa the upheavals were rebranded by the EU/US media into a cozy name of “the Arab spring” as if young North Africans and Middle Easterners were all too eager to be cloned into a copy of happy go lucky White liberal Europeans. No to be forgotten is the earlier PNAC scheme devised in the late 1990s by the prominent American Jewish neocons, including Irving Kristol, Norman Podhoretz, Paul Wolfowitz, and David Frum, whose goal was less the desire to raise the level of political tolerance in Arab states but rather the compulsive wish to double down on Israeli predominance in the Middle East. Fifteen years later the chaotic aftermath of the Arab spring is resulting in the surge of incessant local wars, dysfunctional and lawless states, mass migrations, and the global threat of terrorism.

An early example of “fake news” can be traced back to Western propaganda stories about the existence of “Weapons of Mass Destruction” ( WMD) in Iraq, a story which on the eve of 2003 became an excuse for America and later France to launch expensive punitive military missions in the Middle East and later in Libya. An always itinerant world-improving and self-promoting Franco-Jewish philosopher-king, Bernard-Henry Lévy, played a significant role in coaxing the late French president Nicolas Sarkozy into bombing Libya.

However, the origins of fake news, which also recently marred Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, go back much further into history. Their crude signs first surfaced on the eve of World Wars I and II when supernatural tales about Germany’s “WMDs” started circulating in the USA, France and Great Britain. Those early tales of weapons of mass destructions took on often bizarre phrasings in the portrayal of German armies allegedly hacking off hands of children in occupied Belgium. On the eve, during and after WWII the language about the weapons of mass destruction culminated in the Allied propaganda consisting of horror stories featuring alleged Germany’s ambitions on enslaving the entire world.

After having failed in the phony effort to export liberalism as a commodity in the war-ravaged North Africa and the Middle East, the end result of contemporary Western/American faked news foreign policy has been to set into motion huge non-White migratory waves. Although Israel and its Western allies certainly bear responsibility for the resulting instability, it is always problematic to speculate about the real or alleged size of the Israeli or US neocon involvement in orchestrating the present migratory tsunami in the Middle East and the resulting mass exodus of Arab migrants.

Instead, one should facilitate the inquiry by posing a rhetorical question: Cui bono? Who benefits most from the instability in Northern Africa and the Middle East and the ensuing displacement of millions of locals toward Europe? As long as the main pivot of US and EU foreign policy revolves around the unquestionable support of Israel and its Western fifth column, actors bent on causing chaos will be waiting in the wings.

Chaos on the EU/US doorstep

The geopolitical chessboard is an important field in explaining the current non-European mass migrations, although it carries less weight than dominant political ideas and historical myths that have shaped political decision makers in the EU and the US ever since 1945. Millions of migrants who are waiting now in makeshift camps in Turkey, Jordan and Libya for their entry into the EU may have limited IQ, but they are by no means stupid. They know that they have two powerful allies in the West — the ruling and often self-hating intellectual and political class and the Catholic clergy. Surely, one can blame George Soros and a host of murky NGO’s for flooding the West with African and Asian migrants. Yet the fact remains that these migrants follow first and foremost the unilateral invitation calls from EU high ranking politicians seconded by the Pope and the high Catholic clergy.

ORDER IT NOW

The underlying ideology of present day America and the EU is multiculturalism — a new secular religion. Its legal tenets must never be questioned by public officials if they are to avoid professional disgrace and become proscribed individuals. Each African or Arab migrant knows that once he reaches the Western shores he will become untouchable. In modern Western political narrative the African migrant is portrayed as a quasi-saintly figure symbolizing the victimized “wretched of the Earth” whose time has now come to face off with the evil White Man. Should a Spanish, Italian or French border guard accidently utter a word of rebuke against unlawful behavior of a non-European migrant, he will be charged with a “hate crime”—and likely lose his job. All migrants using the Mediterranean Sea route know that it is far better to be than not be apprehended by the European coastal police. When embarking on their rundown boats they know that when fished out of water by a flotilla of EU high- tech warships off the coast of North Africa, they will soon be able to savor first class medical treatment that they couldn’t even dream about back home. Once reaching their desired destination in an EU state, and even if engaging in unlawful activities, the legal process aimed at shipping them back will take years if not decades. Recently, despite being rejected for asylum in Germany, Anis Amri, the Tunisian terrorist who drove a truck into a crowd in Munich, was not deported — because he did not have a passport.

In another TOO article, I noted that communism fell apart in the East because its theoretical tenets have been much better achieved in practice by the liberal West — albeit under different and less polemical title, such as “no more borders” and “multiculturalism.” Undoubtedly, the mind of Angela Merkel, a chief EU mastermind of open borders policies and the “welcoming culture,” should receive a thorough clinical assessment, although it must be noted that Merkel’s mind doesn’t differ substantially from that of other EU and US politicians. Instead of asking what type of a self-hating, do-good, hypermoralistic politician she is one should rather raise a more apt question: What kind of species Germans and other European peoples have become in order to tolerate politicians who are deliberately working on Europe’s destruction?

One can dispense with antifascists, with Marx, with multiculturalists, and with modern social justice warriors. One can also offer a host of sound arguments or weird conspiracy theories about Jewish intellectual moguls planning to turn Europe and America into interracial cesspools. But most White Americans and Europeans, even those with a strong racial identity, can barely stand criticism of Christian ecumenical and multiracial trappings. It is often overlooked that the higher Catholic clergy, both in Europe and the US, is a prime advocate of non-European arrivals. The German Bishops’ Conference, presided by the influential and appropriately named Reinhard Marx — aka “multikulti Marx” — stands in the forefront of the multicultural doctrine, openly preaching the gospel of borderless racial mixtures. Unlike liberal or antifascist activists, Cardinal Marx does not even try to hide his transracial pro-immigrant sympathies, which he made quite clear in his interview for the German daily Rhein Neckar Zeitung (on February 6, 2016):

Charity knows no borders, just as it ignores any limitations to our asylum law. Anyone entering European soil needs to be treated decently and receive a fair procedure. The borders of Europe must not become the borders of death. It is a shame that already estimated thousands of refugees have died in the Mediterranean or maybe even more. … Last year I was at the border between the US and Mexico where I saw this huge fence and barriers. I thought to myself: this must not be the future for Europe’s borders.

Archbishop’s Marx’s words only echo the words of the U.S Conference of Catholic Bishops and its president Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, who openly pledges solidarity with Muslim refugees. “Welcoming the stranger and those in flight is not one option among many in the Christian life. It is the very form of Christianity itself. Our actions must remind people of Jesus.”

Not all Catholic clergy are exuberant about the arrival of non-European migrants, as witnessed by some rebellious Catholic Franciscans in Eastern Europe who are critical of globalism, Islam, and multiculturalism. Yet they seldom dare voice their views in public. The very conservative and nationalist-minded Catholic Church in Poland, Hungary and Croatia is quite racially aware and therefore frequently on a collision course with the prescribed EU refugee quotas, or with their superiors in Rome. They must however respect the Church hierarchy because breaching the Pope’s words is considered a sin.

The Catholic Church in in Poland or Croatia, for instance, is not just a conveyor of a specific religious belief; it is primarily the embodiment of national identity, even among local atheists and agnostics. The local Catholic clergy in Eastern Europe has little in common with more secularized and immigrant-friendly German and Austrian clergy who still suffer from the stigma of the National-Socialist tainted past and who therefore feel obliged to show the entire world feelings of historical repentance. The present Pope himself serves them as a role model; he is quite explicit about his multiracial ardor, additionally baffling and bewildering many traditional Catholics in Europe who are no longer certain whether to follow his multiracial homilies or listen instead to the calls of their native soil.

Nordic non-Catholic nations, such as Sweden or Denmark, are the cherished goal of Arab and African migrants. These countries, however, unlike Catholic Center or South, have a long tradition of group-oriented tolerance and civic modesty based on the legacy of Lutheran pietism known as Janteloven. To a White Central European or a White American visitor this brand of civic modesty and excessive tolerance toward the Africans, often appears pathetic — a far cry from early pagan Vikings who never feared blood or violence. A stray Arab immigrant in some Eastern Europe down town knows that late at night if walking alone he may be worked over by the local youth. It is often the other way around in guilt-ridden Germany or submissive Denmark.

Hence a dilemma for many racially and ethnically aware White Christians in the US and Europe. One the one hand they are well aware of the destructive nature of multiculturalism, while on the other they cannot ignore early Christian sermons for a multiracial and global society, as put forward by St. Paul’s Epistles to Galatians (3:28): “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

The task of creating White homelands won’t be easy.

  1. You mean ‘some Catholic churchmen’, not ‘the Catholic Church’.

    Plenty Catholics know enough about Mohammedanism and its history, thank you very much – AND the limits of papal infallibility – to utterly reject the former as from Hell, and embrace the latter as Divine. Those are the ones who see through nationalism/racism/anti-Catholicism.

    God bless them most abundantly.

  2. From my blog:

    Feb 21, 2016 – America Needs a Vatican Wall

    The funniest event in the Presidential race occurred when the Pope criticized Donald Trump for advocating a border wall. The Trump team responded by noting the Vatican in Rome is surrounded by a massive wall that was built at great expense to keep people out. If you want to visit, you can enter some parts at guarded entry points, but you can’t stay overnight and can’t stay forever should you give birth or declare yourself a refugee. 

    Despite all the news about the flood of “refugees” no one addresses a solution. A refugee should be granted refuge, temporarily. There are lots of remote Turkish and Greek islands with few or no people. The EU should build massive camps to hold these refugees until it is safe for them to return home, or they want to return home once they realize the borders are not open to immigration. I’m sure the Vatican would support this idea if the press notes that while the Vatican is small, it could easily house some 10,000 African refugees.

    Meanwhile, the EU and NATO should evaluate diplomatic and even military options to restore order so refugees can return home. The same with places like Honduras. If that nation is truly dangerous as refugees claim, send in our Marines to restore order. While Americans do not like military intervention, most prefer that than having millions of impoverished refugees flooding into the USA. Then the millions of “refugees” already here can be sent back home.

    ... restore order so refugees can return home
     
    This is the BIG NON-SEQUITUR that the SJW want to imprint on our minds.

    Refugees/migrants/angels/Third World professionals or whatever the fashionable term du jour, and whatever events may have triggered their migration, by definition have decided that they DO NOT WANT TO LIVE AT HOME OR GO "HOME." We benefit by taking their choice seriously.

    SOLUTION: Pay Third World countries a small premium to house refugees for 1 year. Thereafter, they will have to fend for themselves alongside the natives of the Third World country, tilling the soil or sewing mailbags.

    The STARTING POINT of any policy should be this question:


    WHAT IS THE CHEAPEST AND MOST APPROPRIATE PLACE TO RESETTLE REFUGEES THIS MONTH?
     
    The ANSWER: THIRD-COUNTRY RESETTLEMENT with minor facilitation payments.

    ADVANTAGES:

    * Most "refugees' " countries of origin do not wish to take back their criminals and spend years playing games about not recognizing them, refusing to issue passports, etc.

    * No more bureaucratic posturing by low-level clerks about "identifying" refugees who have chosen to throw away their passports after using them to traverse 7 other countries with less sentimental practices. Simple rule: no passport, free passage.

    * By paying a small fee to the resettlement destination, the West can safeguard basic human rights, food, and basic medical treatment for the resettled masses.

    * No political corruption through churches and publicly-paid social workers making billions off the refugee racket.

    * TV coverage and attendant political pressure can be minimized by selecting resettlement locations far away from international airports and 5 star hotels. Snake infestation around resettlement locations greatly helps keep female reporters and "activists" away.

    * Discourage unmanageable refugee flows. Remember there are some 6,000 MILLION people worldwide who would do anything to live in a Western country.

    Sadly, the same people who are desperate to come to the West would fight to the death all efforts to raise their countries to the level of apartheid Rhodesia, the breadbasket of Africa (now Zimbabwe, the basket case of Africa). Some Zimbabweans - especially those living as impoverished "guest workers" in South Africa - now openly yearn for the good times under Ian Smith's apartheid regime.

    I might quibble about the wording, but you've got the gist of it.
  4. The modern Catholic clergy are all heretics and have been since at least the Second Vatican Council, so there is no need act as if their words issued from any sort of divine authority. The fundamental mistake here is the belief that there is any religious dimension to this subject at all.

    The few thoughtful and upright souls left among us must be brought to understand what contemporary society has well-nigh forgotten, viz. that the whole practice of looking at the world in terms of “social problems” that must be “treated” is itself an artifact of modernist irreligiousness. This is socialistic, atheistic, materialist-monist sentimentality and worldliness in which actual, metaphysical religion plays no part. Neither the early Christians nor any other genuinely religious and saintly soul even thinks about social problems. Saint Paul would not have understood multiculturalism, and if you would have acquainted him with the subject he would have deemed the whole thing to be vanity and nonsense.

    Dr. Tom Sunic (‘doctor”—that’s a laugh) is no better than the clergy he decries when he writes that Saint Paul’s words to the Galatians (“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus”) were in aid of a global and multiracial society. This is more modernist nonsense. Is there no one left in the world today who understands that the Apostle was talking about soteriology here, not social conditions? That the purpose of this scripture is to refute the Judaizers and idolaters who taught that salvation depended on something other than the blood of Christ?

    Anybody who reads this passage as if social conditions were being discussed has already revealed himself to be not a Christian, for he lacks the theological virtue of faith, which is an intellectual act. Faith sees what is at issue here—the means of salvation. Pseudo-faith and human vanity sees something else, i.e. a social commentary. In the days before the modernist mindset, Christians had no problem expelling Moors, Jews, Ottomans, and Protestants from their lands on numerous occasions. The sainted Joan of Arc even drove the English, fellow Catholics, out of France solely on the grounds that they did not belong there. None of this could have been the case if the men of those times had read the scripture the way moderns do. This is sufficient to prove that our interpretation, indeed our entire paradigm, is incorrect.

    “Welcoming the stranger” has nothing to do with “the form of Christianity itself.” In the actual and existing conditions of the day, it is nothing but degenerate cuckoldry and treason. These so-called bishops will spend eternity in hell being sodomized with pikes and made to drink cauldrons of hot diarrhea, so that that which they craved with their filthy orifices may be satisfied, and that which they spewed out of their mouths may return to them.

    Excellent comment, and while I fully share the anger expressed in your last paragraph, it's too much--you already said it all so well. The apostasy of these high ranking RCC clerics can be inferred from and directly measured by their scandalous abuse of soteriology to promote the leftist socio-sexual political agenda, possibly starting with PF himself.

    "The modern Catholic clergy are all heretics and have been since at least the Second Vatican Council, so there is no need act as if their words issued from any sort of divine authority."

    How easy to make this assumption and thus go out into the religious world without any repercussions for your own conduct. You unilaterally impose your own prohibitions on who legitimately is a religious leader--only white men--and denounce Christianity's message that God's message is open to ALL who seek His counsel.

    "The few thoughtful and upright souls left among us must be brought to understand what contemporary society has well-nigh forgotten, viz. that the whole practice of looking at the world in terms of “social problems” that must be “treated” is itself an artifact of modernist irreligiousness."

    Only God will deem us to be "thoughtful, upright souls".

    "Neither the early Christians nor any other genuinely religious and saintly soul even thinks about social problems."

    Seriously, you are claiming that only a certain person who meets your criteria is a "genuinely religious and saintly soul". What are those standards?

    "Saint Paul would not have understood multiculturalism, and if you would have acquainted him with the subject he would have deemed the whole thing to be vanity and nonsense."

    And how are you certain that he would feel this way? What evidence suggests that he would share your sentiments? Because by reviewing Paul's letters, there are no borders in receiving the Body of Christ. Once baptized, whites and non-whites have their place at the Lord's Table of Fellowship. We are brothers and sisters. We pray and sing with one voice praise God before whom no race or ethnicity is outside of His love.

    "Dr. Tom Sunic (‘doctor”—that’s a laugh) is no better than the clergy he decries when he writes that Saint Paul’s words to the Galatians (“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus”) were in aid of a global and multiracial society. This is more modernist nonsense."

    Son, the doctor is decidedly accurate in his assessment. The bruising of the man Jesus, the servant of God, saves lost creations and reconciles them to their Creator. In the matter of salvation, ALL you seek Him will receive His gift. Again, please show me specific evidence from church teachings or Christian conferences or whatever sources you are able to muster that state only white people can only receive His grace and only white people may serve Him via the clergy.

    "Anybody who reads this passage as if social conditions were being discussed has already revealed himself to be not a Christian, for he lacks the theological virtue of faith, which is an intellectual act."

    How are you even able to make that determination? Who granted YOU this awesome responsibility? Has God spoken directly to you to be his ultimate defender in the faith?

    "In the days before the modernist mindset, Christians had no problem expelling Moors, Jews, Ottomans, and Protestants from their lands on numerous occasions. The sainted Joan of Arc even drove the English, fellow Catholics, out of France solely on the grounds that they did not belong there."

    There were mitigating political, social, and religious factors here. Do you even comprehend the complexity of these past situations?

    "“Welcoming the stranger” has nothing to do with “the form of Christianity itself.”"

    Matthew 25:40--Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brethren you did it to me. Christ identified with strangers who sought to become Christians. Once they engorged themselves with His love, once they are convinced of His supreme divinity, they are welcome with open arms. Unkindness to Christians is insulting rejection of Christ. Christianity in and of itself is "welcoming the stranger".

    "In the actual and existing conditions of the day, it is nothing but degenerate cuckoldry and treason. These so-called bishops will spend eternity in hell being sodomized with pikes and made to drink cauldrons of hot diarrhea, so that that which they craved with their filthy orifices may be satisfied, and that which they spewed out of their mouths may return to them."

    You are being overdramatic here.

    as someone who welcomes instruction from the religious, please consider that my understanding, incomplete as it may be yet not necessarily incorrect, of the Stoic philosophy which largely characterized Hellenism, fed directly into Christianity.

    The collapse of Greece after the Pelopponesian Wars resulted in a social and political awakening which argued for Neither Greek nor Jew, nor any Otherness, but a unification of Mankind , etc.

    Out of this stew came Humanity and the universal religion, and a new politics of Empire, etc.

    Soteriology , I had to look that one up, arguably is Not in contradiction to "social problems" necessarily, if the the psychodynamic is restricted to saving souls, not health care, etc.

    The practical and non-intellectual secular part of life, if that is not contradictory in a religious society like Christianity,for centuries, just carried on in sociobiological/HBD way.. The social character of our species Naturally leads to care for family and friends, and local community.

    Thus it seems that 'the social and the political' cannot be completely set aside from the religious quest for salvation. Certainly, a hierarchy of values can put salvation first, etc.
    ---------
    What I have been thinking about lately is how the last couple of centuries have exploded into Revolution. First, this has probably happened due to the breakdown of The Church. We have seen Revolutionary movements in Protestants starting in the Reformation, and now The Church itself has decided to Revolutionize itself as well.

    Meanwhile secular society has moved toward Equality , racial equality, sexual equality, and all the leveling hysterics of our time.

    I am rereading Carl Degler's In Search of Human Nature, Stanford, 1991. The Left in general, Christianity not withstanding, began the Revolution, and influenced the revolt against Darwinism
    in social thought of huge late 19th C. Then the immigration debates in the US ca. 1900-1925 in particular, brought forward the jewish assault with Boas as academic Lenin, and Kroeber as the hardest of the hard-line Culture/History theorists, totally rejecting genes. Never mind God.

    So, the Revolution Continues, digging down into the most obscure Oppressions imaginable. Feminism began at the same time, with the language exactly the same as now....100 years ago.

    CULTURE as the great god: miracle, mystery, authority and punisher extradinaire. The high priests of Revolution in academic robes, media celebrity flashing lots of skin and money, the pillory for hate speech, etc. On it goes, the Cultural Revolution now in full swing.

    Kroeber was probably a communist...will look into that. Never mind the communist jews like Boas for now. The Age of Disbelief , per G.K. Chesterton, leading to ' people will believe in Anything' as a result, like race equality, and Globalism and borderless One World.

    Christianity always rendered unto Caesar....believed in Fate, more or less, and recognized inheritance in animals and humans...the poor we will always have with us.

    So immigration is back, and the race wars are coming, regardless of the civil religion of equality and Words....a latter day Lamarckianism, loosely interpreted. Repeat after me: We Are All One.

    How do you know the modern Catholic clergy are heretics? Do you have a degree in theology? Did you go to catholic school and take religion class? Did you go to public school and even attend Catholic Sunday school classes?

    Do you even know the definition of heresy?

    Heresy is clearly, narrowly and legally defined in church canonical law. It's not random sermons or rearranging candles and statues that someone objects to.
  5. The early Church, though preaching submission to the one true God in the context of a world mostly united under the power of the Roman Empire, nonetheless maintained a considerable amount of language about the plurality of nations and peoples, as for example in Revelation 7:9:

    “After this I saw a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and tribes, and peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne, and in sight of the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands:”

    Such language surely underscores the conviction that distinctive peoples, languages, and governments should continue indefinitely as a fact of human history, only to be annulled (if even then) by God’s victorious judgment of our fallen world.

    Further, the New Testament’s constant equating of Rome (at least in its tyrannical and idolatrous capacities) with ancient Babylon underscores that early Christianity was mindful of the blasphemous nature of the Tower of Babel’s ambition to assimilate all mankind in defiance of God.

    And in the Middle Ages, Dante’s Divine Comedy bears memorable, but not unique, witness to the mainstream quality of popular and political antagonism against overreaching Popes. Dante, though he advocated a kind of Justinian-like resurrection of the (Holy) Roman Empire, nonetheless was an Italian patriot with a sense of his region’s particularities, and who advocated a pretty strenuous segregation of spiritual and temporal authorities. Today’s multikult clergy, Catholic or otherwise, are conspicuously secular-minded hypocrites who treat their pastoral positions as a sinecure. You could even describe them as crypto-Talmudists, insofar as they love to engage in lengthy “theological” disquisitions even though they don’t believe in a personal God or in revelation, yet fancy themselves profound thinkers.

    In fact, a Methodist clergyman who taught my Myth & Ritual class once passed out a printout displaying, in graphic form, his “model of salvation” based upon Galatians 3:28. He also proudly agitated for including Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Peace Be Unto His Name)’s Letter from Birmingham Jail in the canon of the New Testament. Such is the intellectual quality of these false shepherds, loosing the wolves of an alien creed upon the disarmed lambs of Europe.

  6. Once the backbone of European culture, the post-Enlightenment Church is now infected with the assumptions of Liberalism and has become the accomplice and enabler of the Third World invasion of the West. Its communard-diseased “Social Justice Doctrine” has made the breastplate of the Europeans into a nest of virtue-signalling traitors.

  7. Even the hard heads and well informed fail to mention the crucial importance of citizenship and permanency of residence (with access to welfare). The madness, for any but the mobile 0.01 per cent, in inviting people (who will not assimilate but have four times your fertility rate) to be able to vote to change your society and tax you to pay for their families and preferences is beyond mind boggling.

    Let’s welcome reliably productive taxpayers but just help the others prepare themselves to be useful members of the societies they have left. Making 15 years of taxpaying (with some public interest exceptions) a prerequisite to anyone and his/her spouse and children, wherever born, becoming citizens would be a good start. Fine tuning will of course be required…

    NO - ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS.

    It is difficult to see why there should be exceptions in the first place, but even accepting that an administration might feel that an immigrant deserves naturalization without having paid taxes, the law should insist that PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS CAN VOLUNTEER TO PAY TAXES ON HER BEHALF INSTEAD over 15 years to maintain eligibility for naturalization.

    Of course, stringent language tests and background checks would need to be passed 2 years into the trial period, and again at 5 year intervals in addition to the tax requirements. Candidate names will be published ahead of time to allow citizens to object.

    If a sufficient number of VOLUNTEERS cannot be found to shoulder the candidate's tax burden for 15 years, then the alleged "public interest" in the candidate's naturalization is clearly not strong enough to withstand scrutiny, and the candidate should be REJECTED.

  9. I have an abiding memory of an elderly white priest in a South London church surrounded by mainly African and South East Asian parishoners. He’d been in situ since the 1960s, when, I imagine, he’d taken on the task with some mixture of love and sympathy for his flock. As I watched him administer the Mass, it distressed me to think he’d ended up hating them.

  10. interesting take on the current situation. could this also explain the immigration of mostly catholic south americans into the usa.
    it could be argued that islam has had a role to play in the middle east and north africa.
    that is to lift up the people from jungle voodoo boogie woogie type relegion to belief in the simplest form of the abrahamic relegion which is islam and then up onto the next level which is christianity.
    this ascendacy to christianity is called “the risen” as in “christ had risen”.that is to say the people have risen up to next level of belief and thinking

    am i pushing my luck here with my crackpot theories. perhaps

    but it is interesting that this article asserts that neocon jews set this ascendacy in motion

    the difference between “the risen” and “the chosen” i leave that to the intellectuals to work out.

    Mexicans and S Americans don't come here because of the American Catholic Church.

    They come for welfare and jobs, paved roads, electricity, sewers and clean water in that order.

    Latin Americans who actually attend church are generally evangelical Protestants rather than nominal Catholics.

    In fact, evangelical Protestantism is rapidly becoming a majority religion among church goers.

    “the so-called asymmetric or hybrid wars waged by the US and EU against the ISIS are creating a widespread, albeit still muted hatred against Arabs and Muslims among the majority of US and EU White Christians”

    The evil provocations and mass murder by US and EU White Christians gave rise to these groups. When there is blowback, as is logical, you hypocrites have the gall to talk about your “still muted hatred against Arabs and Muslims.”

    What do you expect, you people perpetuate evil against us, and in return Muslims must shower you with love and subservience? Fcuk you!!

    If someone deserves to be hated more than others, it is the US and EU White supremacist Christians! All your glorious discoveries and inventions, be damned!

    Mark my words, it is for that reason that US and EU White Christians will remain godless or follow some pagan nonsense.

    That will be their real “burden,” if you know what I mean ;|

    The modern Catholic clergy are all heretics and have been since at least the Second Vatican Council, so there is no need act as if their words issued from any sort of divine authority. The fundamental mistake here is the belief that there is any religious dimension to this subject at all.

    The few thoughtful and upright souls left among us must be brought to understand what contemporary society has well-nigh forgotten, viz. that the whole practice of looking at the world in terms of "social problems" that must be "treated" is itself an artifact of modernist irreligiousness. This is socialistic, atheistic, materialist-monist sentimentality and worldliness in which actual, metaphysical religion plays no part. Neither the early Christians nor any other genuinely religious and saintly soul even thinks about social problems. Saint Paul would not have understood multiculturalism, and if you would have acquainted him with the subject he would have deemed the whole thing to be vanity and nonsense.

    Dr. Tom Sunic ('doctor"---that's a laugh) is no better than the clergy he decries when he writes that Saint Paul's words to the Galatians (“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus") were in aid of a global and multiracial society. This is more modernist nonsense. Is there no one left in the world today who understands that the Apostle was talking about soteriology here, not social conditions? That the purpose of this scripture is to refute the Judaizers and idolaters who taught that salvation depended on something other than the blood of Christ?

    Anybody who reads this passage as if social conditions were being discussed has already revealed himself to be not a Christian, for he lacks the theological virtue of faith, which is an intellectual act. Faith sees what is at issue here---the means of salvation. Pseudo-faith and human vanity sees something else, i.e. a social commentary. In the days before the modernist mindset, Christians had no problem expelling Moors, Jews, Ottomans, and Protestants from their lands on numerous occasions. The sainted Joan of Arc even drove the English, fellow Catholics, out of France solely on the grounds that they did not belong there. None of this could have been the case if the men of those times had read the scripture the way moderns do. This is sufficient to prove that our interpretation, indeed our entire paradigm, is incorrect.

    "Welcoming the stranger" has nothing to do with "the form of Christianity itself." In the actual and existing conditions of the day, it is nothing but degenerate cuckoldry and treason. These so-called bishops will spend eternity in hell being sodomized with pikes and made to drink cauldrons of hot diarrhea, so that that which they craved with their filthy orifices may be satisfied, and that which they spewed out of their mouths may return to them.

    Excellent comment, and while I fully share the anger expressed in your last paragraph, it’s too much–you already said it all so well. The apostasy of these high ranking RCC clerics can be inferred from and directly measured by their scandalous abuse of soteriology to promote the leftist socio-sexual political agenda, possibly starting with PF himself.

    Look up the definition of apostasy before you accuse the bishops of that.
    Whatever you think of the Catholic clergy they are not apostates.

    Amazing how Catholic laymen and non Catholics suddenly become experts on theology when religion is mentioned.

    Heretic, apostate, none of you know what those words mean. What next, inflamed discussions about wood, tile or carpet on the church floors?

  14. The “beginning of the end” of Christianity was sealed with the infiltration of the Catholic Church “Vatican II Ecumenical Council” of the 1960s by Jews and Protestants.
    Much Catholic ritual was discarded, as well as the promotion of absolution of the Jews for Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and death, despite vitriolic Jewish hatred of Jesus Christ which exists to this day. .
    Abandoning the use of Latin in the Mass destroyed its “universality”. Previous to Vatican II, one could attend Mass anywhere in the Roman Catholic world and understand the meaning of the Mass.
    Prohibition of the celebration of the Tridentine Mass (except by special ecclesiastical permission) pushed many Catholics away from the new “Modern Mass” and the New Church, in general…It took a brave Cardinal Lefebvre and the Society of St. Pius X to “push back” against Vatican II and re-legitimize the celebration of the pre-Vatican II Tridentine Mass and other Catholic rites.
    In pre-Vatican II times, the priest (celebrant of the Mass) was considered to be a part of the congregation, and a representative of the people.
    By turning the priest around to face the congregation, the priest was no longer a representative, but an “actor”, diminishing his status and importance.
    One area where the Catholic Church could improve itself involves celibacy, which is NOT Church “dogma” or doctrine. Celibacy was put in place during the middle ages in order to keep Church property from being inherited by family and relatives of priests and bishops. Celibacy was based on purely financial considerations–nothing more. It is interesting to note that Episcopal (Anglican) priests who convert to Catholicism can bring their families with them to the Church while Roman Catholic priests are denied marriage.
    It was a grave mistake by the Church to de-legitimize celebration of pre-Vatican II principles.

    “The modern Catholic clergy are all heretics and have been since at least the Second Vatican Council, so there is no need act as if their words issued from any sort of divine authority.”

    How easy to make this assumption and thus go out into the religious world without any repercussions for your own conduct. You unilaterally impose your own prohibitions on who legitimately is a religious leader–only white men–and denounce Christianity’s message that God’s message is open to ALL who seek His counsel.

    “The few thoughtful and upright souls left among us must be brought to understand what contemporary society has well-nigh forgotten, viz. that the whole practice of looking at the world in terms of “social problems” that must be “treated” is itself an artifact of modernist irreligiousness.”

    Only God will deem us to be “thoughtful, upright souls”.

    “Neither the early Christians nor any other genuinely religious and saintly soul even thinks about social problems.”

    Seriously, you are claiming that only a certain person who meets your criteria is a “genuinely religious and saintly soul”. What are those standards?

    “Saint Paul would not have understood multiculturalism, and if you would have acquainted him with the subject he would have deemed the whole thing to be vanity and nonsense.”

    And how are you certain that he would feel this way? What evidence suggests that he would share your sentiments? Because by reviewing Paul’s letters, there are no borders in receiving the Body of Christ. Once baptized, whites and non-whites have their place at the Lord’s Table of Fellowship. We are brothers and sisters. We pray and sing with one voice praise God before whom no race or ethnicity is outside of His love.

    “Dr. Tom Sunic (‘doctor”—that’s a laugh) is no better than the clergy he decries when he writes that Saint Paul’s words to the Galatians (“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus”) were in aid of a global and multiracial society. This is more modernist nonsense.”

    Son, the doctor is decidedly accurate in his assessment. The bruising of the man Jesus, the servant of God, saves lost creations and reconciles them to their Creator. In the matter of salvation, ALL you seek Him will receive His gift. Again, please show me specific evidence from church teachings or Christian conferences or whatever sources you are able to muster that state only white people can only receive His grace and only white people may serve Him via the clergy.

    “Anybody who reads this passage as if social conditions were being discussed has already revealed himself to be not a Christian, for he lacks the theological virtue of faith, which is an intellectual act.”

    How are you even able to make that determination? Who granted YOU this awesome responsibility? Has God spoken directly to you to be his ultimate defender in the faith?

    “In the days before the modernist mindset, Christians had no problem expelling Moors, Jews, Ottomans, and Protestants from their lands on numerous occasions. The sainted Joan of Arc even drove the English, fellow Catholics, out of France solely on the grounds that they did not belong there.”

    There were mitigating political, social, and religious factors here. Do you even comprehend the complexity of these past situations?

    ““Welcoming the stranger” has nothing to do with “the form of Christianity itself.””

    Matthew 25:40–Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brethren you did it to me. Christ identified with strangers who sought to become Christians. Once they engorged themselves with His love, once they are convinced of His supreme divinity, they are welcome with open arms. Unkindness to Christians is insulting rejection of Christ. Christianity in and of itself is “welcoming the stranger”.

    “In the actual and existing conditions of the day, it is nothing but degenerate cuckoldry and treason. These so-called bishops will spend eternity in hell being sodomized with pikes and made to drink cauldrons of hot diarrhea, so that that which they craved with their filthy orifices may be satisfied, and that which they spewed out of their mouths may return to them.”

    You have a point, but
    I don't think anyone is saying that salvation belongs to any one race. That is Judaism, not Christianity. Nevertheless that doesn't entitle anyone to another's country. Truthfully Omni-Nationalism is the only political model that truly squares with traditional Christian doctrine.
    It's that doctrine that allows us to judge these heterodox prelates. Sure, God knows the soul, and we can't ever be sure of the specifics, but when a bishop openly and radically denies or mutates Catholic doctrine, we know he's wrong. Most of the time the issues aren't subtle.

    We are allowed to have our opinions. There are too many prelates more concerned with "social" causes, which are a dead end, than the salvation of souls. If you go to the Novus Ordo mass in many places, you'll get an earful of leftist dogma, but little discussion of the spirit.
    I'm glad I belong to a traditional parish. You should seek it out, if you're not already involved in one- that transcends politics!

  20. With respect, you are over-thinking it.

    This is not about doctrine or compassion. It’s about cheap labor. It’s about money.

    The Vatican city is surrounded by armed guards and woe betide any ‘immigrant’ (muslim or otherwise) who tries to break in after hours and help themselves to the Vatican’s riches. At the very least the Pope is a sanctimonious hypocrite. Borders for me but not for thee.

    It’s because the Catholic church depends a lot on donations and favors from the rich. And the rich like money. And the easiest way for the rich to make more money is by driving wages lower. And the easiest way to drive wages lower is to rapidly increase the labor supply. And given the stubborn refusal of first-worlders to have more children than they can support, the easiest way to do this is via opening up the borders to the surplus population of the third world.

    If the church spoke out against against how immigration is making rich countries poorer but not lifting up poor countries, and asked instead how come poor countries aren’t getting richer, they would not be so favored by the elites. We can’t talk about how Mexico is now poorer than China – no, any discussion of that is off the table (except in vague and vacuous terms). Mexican poverty is a good thing and not, apparently to be questioned. No let’s allow US oligarchs to use Mexican poverty to drag America down to a low level. That’s a moral imperative.

    Follow the money. Cheap labor uber alles.

    First, the evil junta prevented a Marxist takeover ala Cuba. They, not the rich kids sucked into the revolution by their Marxist college professors were the good guys.

    Second, the society of Jesus is extremely liberal and socialist on economic issues.

    Third, the Jesuits have championed the poor and Indians against the rich and Spanish in S America since the late 1500s. That's why the Spanish elite got the Jesuits expelled from S America at one time. If you can read a history book, check out the founding of Paraguay by the Jesuits as a refuge for Indians who needed to escape from Spanish exploitation

    Fourth, the Jesuits are often accused of being Marxists just like the revolutionaries who tried to take over Argentina.

    I read these same arguments over and over again. Why is that? It like the Titanic is sinking and people are still arguing over the most desirable color of their choice of lifeboat.

    The Catholic Church as we know it is as dead as a door nail. Not only dead but rigor mortis has already set in and, unlike a zombie in a movie, it ain’t coming back.

    Vatican II wounded severely it but the coup de gras was administered by the flood of poor, third world congregants who increasingly occupy the church pews and whose presence will make the white congregants feel increasingly out of place as time passes. These holdout whites will then end up fleeing in wholesale numbers. The Church is increasingly dependent on these new arrivals to fill their churches and will increasingly feel a need to appeal to them alone. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo? Si! Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? No. Not a chance!

    It might be time of white Catholics to take a look at the Christian Orthodox churches instead of just grumbling about this moldering corpse. The Orthodox churches alone seem to have remained untainted by trendy modernism and rigid Ziocon-ism that has overtaken both mainstream and fundamentalist Protestant churches.

    As an added bonus, the Orthodox churches also have historically allowed married priests so there have been no wide scale pedophile scandals. As a result their coffers haven’t be taxed by payments to pedophile victims and their philosophy tainted by outright blackmail of high Church officials.

    Islam has persecuted or exterminated Christianity wherever it’s invaded and been in a position to do so. It has no sense of tolerance. For the various Christian denominations, Catholic or Protestant, to encourage the movement of Islam into their areas is beyond belief. It’s a poisoned pill. I can only guess that they’ve become fat and decadent from easy living and no longer have any relevance. In view of all the sex scandals that have emerged over the years one really has to start asking oneself about the type of person who is drawn towards becoming a clergyman.

    Why Predators Are Attracted to Careers in the Clergy
    Some further insight into a serious phenomenon.
    Posted Apr 20, 2014

    5. Many religious organizations preach forgiveness, even for felonies. For predators this is truly a godsend. This means that if they get caught, they can ask for forgiveness and chances are it will be given, in a pious but naïve effort to help the lawbreaker “learn from his mistakes.” Unfortunately, the predator sees this as an opportunity to sharpen his skills and to do his crime again, perhaps this time more carefully. [...]

    11. There is, it should be noted, no religion or sect that screens for psychopathy as defined by Robert Hare that I am aware of. All you need is to be ordained, or you declare yourself a religious leader and the way is clear for the predator. And so while some organizations, such as in law enforcement, screen for pathologies by using psychometric tools, very few religious organization do so. Which is why the predator would benefit from joining or leading such an organization. Across the planet, there is almost no scrutiny or due diligence that is or will be conducted. To connive, or to “con,” the predator merely needs his victim to have faith and trust in the predator something that is often easily achieved with the vestments of a legitimate religious organization.

  26. We should be pro-immigration.

    But immigration should be to poor nations.

    If indeed immigrants are such a blessing and add to the economy, then poorest nations should be blessed with immigration.

    So, those Mexicans, Chinese, Hindus, and Muslims should all head to black Africa.

    There is no need for them to come to the rich West to make it even richer. That’s like giving more money to a rich man.

    Or if their own nations are poor, they should bless their own nations with their talent & energy and make them rich.

  27. I think all Western religion is pretty much toast. As the population becomes more educated they inevitably turn to atheism or at least become agnostic and give up on their Churches as they believe them to be nothing more than a hand in their pocket. The problem is that those folks don’t congregate every week and the Muslims do, some 5 times a day where they discuss ways of taking stuff from the Christians. It then becomes up to the western governments to turn back the hoard but of course as soon as they figure out the Muslim birth rate and hence vote rate we become a casualty of war.

    interesting take on the current situation. could this also explain the immigration of mostly catholic south americans into the usa.
    it could be argued that islam has had a role to play in the middle east and north africa.
    that is to lift up the people from jungle voodoo boogie woogie type relegion to belief in the simplest form of the abrahamic relegion which is islam and then up onto the next level which is christianity.
    this ascendacy to christianity is called "the risen" as in "christ had risen".that is to say the people have risen up to next level of belief and thinking

    am i pushing my luck here with my crackpot theories. perhaps

    but it is interesting that this article asserts that neocon jews set this ascendacy in motion

    the difference between "the risen" and "the chosen" i leave that to the intellectuals to work out.

    Mexicans and S Americans don’t come here because of the American Catholic Church.

    They come for welfare and jobs, paved roads, electricity, sewers and clean water in that order.

    Feb 21, 2016 - America Needs a Vatican Wall

    The funniest event in the Presidential race occurred when the Pope criticized Donald Trump for advocating a border wall. The Trump team responded by noting the Vatican in Rome is surrounded by a massive wall that was built at great expense to keep people out. If you want to visit, you can enter some parts at guarded entry points, but you can't stay overnight and can't stay forever should you give birth or declare yourself a refugee. 

    Despite all the news about the flood of "refugees" no one addresses a solution. A refugee should be granted refuge, temporarily. There are lots of remote Turkish and Greek islands with few or no people. The EU should build massive camps to hold these refugees until it is safe for them to return home, or they want to return home once they realize the borders are not open to immigration. I'm sure the Vatican would support this idea if the press notes that while the Vatican is small, it could easily house some 10,000 African refugees.

    Meanwhile, the EU and NATO should evaluate diplomatic and even military options to restore order so refugees can return home. The same with places like Honduras. If that nation is truly dangerous as refugees claim, send in our Marines to restore order. While Americans do not like military intervention, most prefer that than having millions of impoverished refugees flooding into the USA. Then the millions of "refugees" already here can be sent back home.

    … restore order so refugees can return home

    This is the BIG NON-SEQUITUR that the SJW want to imprint on our minds.

    Refugees/migrants/angels/Third World professionals or whatever the fashionable term du jour, and whatever events may have triggered their migration, by definition have decided that they DO NOT WANT TO LIVE AT HOME OR GO “HOME.” We benefit by taking their choice seriously.

    SOLUTION: Pay Third World countries a small premium to house refugees for 1 year. Thereafter, they will have to fend for themselves alongside the natives of the Third World country, tilling the soil or sewing mailbags.

    The STARTING POINT of any policy should be this question:

    WHAT IS THE CHEAPEST AND MOST APPROPRIATE PLACE TO RESETTLE REFUGEES THIS MONTH?

    The ANSWER: THIRD-COUNTRY RESETTLEMENT with minor facilitation payments.

    ADVANTAGES:

    * Most “refugees’ ” countries of origin do not wish to take back their criminals and spend years playing games about not recognizing them, refusing to issue passports, etc.

    * No more bureaucratic posturing by low-level clerks about “identifying” refugees who have chosen to throw away their passports after using them to traverse 7 other countries with less sentimental practices. Simple rule: no passport, free passage.

    * By paying a small fee to the resettlement destination, the West can safeguard basic human rights, food, and basic medical treatment for the resettled masses.

    * No political corruption through churches and publicly-paid social workers making billions off the refugee racket.

    * TV coverage and attendant political pressure can be minimized by selecting resettlement locations far away from international airports and 5 star hotels. Snake infestation around resettlement locations greatly helps keep female reporters and “activists” away.

    * Discourage unmanageable refugee flows. Remember there are some 6,000 MILLION people worldwide who would do anything to live in a Western country.

    Sadly, the same people who are desperate to come to the West would fight to the death all efforts to raise their countries to the level of apartheid Rhodesia, the breadbasket of Africa (now Zimbabwe, the basket case of Africa). Some Zimbabweans – especially those living as impoverished “guest workers” in South Africa – now openly yearn for the good times under Ian Smith’s apartheid regime.

    Even the hard heads and well informed fail to mention the crucial importance of citizenship and permanency of residence (with access to welfare). The madness, for any but the mobile 0.01 per cent, in inviting people (who will not assimilate but have four times your fertility rate) to be able to vote to change your society and tax you to pay for their families and preferences is beyond mind boggling.

    Let's welcome reliably productive taxpayers but just help the others prepare themselves to be useful members of the societies they have left. Making 15 years of taxpaying (with some public interest exceptions) a prerequisite to anyone and his/her spouse and children, wherever born, becoming citizens would be a good start. Fine tuning will of course be required...

    Making 15 years of taxpaying (with some public interest exceptions) a prerequisite

    NO – ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS.

    It is difficult to see why there should be exceptions in the first place, but even accepting that an administration might feel that an immigrant deserves naturalization without having paid taxes, the law should insist that PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS CAN VOLUNTEER TO PAY TAXES ON HER BEHALF INSTEAD over 15 years to maintain eligibility for naturalization.

    Of course, stringent language tests and background checks would need to be passed 2 years into the trial period, and again at 5 year intervals in addition to the tax requirements. Candidate names will be published ahead of time to allow citizens to object.

    If a sufficient number of VOLUNTEERS cannot be found to shoulder the candidate’s tax burden for 15 years, then the alleged “public interest” in the candidate’s naturalization is clearly not strong enough to withstand scrutiny, and the candidate should be REJECTED.

    The modern Catholic clergy are all heretics and have been since at least the Second Vatican Council, so there is no need act as if their words issued from any sort of divine authority. The fundamental mistake here is the belief that there is any religious dimension to this subject at all.

    The few thoughtful and upright souls left among us must be brought to understand what contemporary society has well-nigh forgotten, viz. that the whole practice of looking at the world in terms of "social problems" that must be "treated" is itself an artifact of modernist irreligiousness. This is socialistic, atheistic, materialist-monist sentimentality and worldliness in which actual, metaphysical religion plays no part. Neither the early Christians nor any other genuinely religious and saintly soul even thinks about social problems. Saint Paul would not have understood multiculturalism, and if you would have acquainted him with the subject he would have deemed the whole thing to be vanity and nonsense.

    Dr. Tom Sunic ('doctor"---that's a laugh) is no better than the clergy he decries when he writes that Saint Paul's words to the Galatians (“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus") were in aid of a global and multiracial society. This is more modernist nonsense. Is there no one left in the world today who understands that the Apostle was talking about soteriology here, not social conditions? That the purpose of this scripture is to refute the Judaizers and idolaters who taught that salvation depended on something other than the blood of Christ?

    Anybody who reads this passage as if social conditions were being discussed has already revealed himself to be not a Christian, for he lacks the theological virtue of faith, which is an intellectual act. Faith sees what is at issue here---the means of salvation. Pseudo-faith and human vanity sees something else, i.e. a social commentary. In the days before the modernist mindset, Christians had no problem expelling Moors, Jews, Ottomans, and Protestants from their lands on numerous occasions. The sainted Joan of Arc even drove the English, fellow Catholics, out of France solely on the grounds that they did not belong there. None of this could have been the case if the men of those times had read the scripture the way moderns do. This is sufficient to prove that our interpretation, indeed our entire paradigm, is incorrect.

    "Welcoming the stranger" has nothing to do with "the form of Christianity itself." In the actual and existing conditions of the day, it is nothing but degenerate cuckoldry and treason. These so-called bishops will spend eternity in hell being sodomized with pikes and made to drink cauldrons of hot diarrhea, so that that which they craved with their filthy orifices may be satisfied, and that which they spewed out of their mouths may return to them.

    as someone who welcomes instruction from the religious, please consider that my understanding, incomplete as it may be yet not necessarily incorrect, of the Stoic philosophy which largely characterized Hellenism, fed directly into Christianity.

    The collapse of Greece after the Pelopponesian Wars resulted in a social and political awakening which argued for Neither Greek nor Jew, nor any Otherness, but a unification of Mankind , etc.

    Out of this stew came Humanity and the universal religion, and a new politics of Empire, etc.

    Soteriology , I had to look that one up, arguably is Not in contradiction to “social problems” necessarily, if the the psychodynamic is restricted to saving souls, not health care, etc.

    The practical and non-intellectual secular part of life, if that is not contradictory in a religious society like Christianity,for centuries, just carried on in sociobiological/HBD way.. The social character of our species Naturally leads to care for family and friends, and local community.

    Thus it seems that ‘the social and the political’ cannot be completely set aside from the religious quest for salvation. Certainly, a hierarchy of values can put salvation first, etc.
    ———
    What I have been thinking about lately is how the last couple of centuries have exploded into Revolution. First, this has probably happened due to the breakdown of The Church. We have seen Revolutionary movements in Protestants starting in the Reformation, and now The Church itself has decided to Revolutionize itself as well.

    Meanwhile secular society has moved toward Equality , racial equality, sexual equality, and all the leveling hysterics of our time.

    I am rereading Carl Degler’s In Search of Human Nature, Stanford, 1991. The Left in general, Christianity not withstanding, began the Revolution, and influenced the revolt against Darwinism
    in social thought of huge late 19th C. Then the immigration debates in the US ca. 1900-1925 in particular, brought forward the jewish assault with Boas as academic Lenin, and Kroeber as the hardest of the hard-line Culture/History theorists, totally rejecting genes. Never mind God.

    So, the Revolution Continues, digging down into the most obscure Oppressions imaginable. Feminism began at the same time, with the language exactly the same as now….100 years ago.

    CULTURE as the great god: miracle, mystery, authority and punisher extradinaire. The high priests of Revolution in academic robes, media celebrity flashing lots of skin and money, the pillory for hate speech, etc. On it goes, the Cultural Revolution now in full swing.

    Kroeber was probably a communist…will look into that. Never mind the communist jews like Boas for now. The Age of Disbelief , per G.K. Chesterton, leading to ‘ people will believe in Anything’ as a result, like race equality, and Globalism and borderless One World.

    Christianity always rendered unto Caesar….believed in Fate, more or less, and recognized inheritance in animals and humans…the poor we will always have with us.

    So immigration is back, and the race wars are coming, regardless of the civil religion of equality and Words….a latter day Lamarckianism, loosely interpreted. Repeat after me: We Are All One.

    Second, the society of Jesus is extremely liberal and socialist on economic issues.

    Third, the Jesuits have championed the poor and Indians against the rich and Spanish in S America since the late 1500s. That’s why the Spanish elite got the Jesuits expelled from S America at one time. If you can read a history book, check out the founding of Paraguay by the Jesuits as a refuge for Indians who needed to escape from Spanish exploitation

    Fourth, the Jesuits are often accused of being Marxists just like the revolutionaries who tried to take over Argentina.

    The “beginning of the end” of Christianity was sealed with the infiltration of the Catholic Church “Vatican II Ecumenical Council” of the 1960s by Jews and Protestants.
    Much Catholic ritual was discarded, as well as the promotion of absolution of the Jews for Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and death, despite vitriolic Jewish hatred of Jesus Christ which exists to this day. .
    Abandoning the use of Latin in the Mass destroyed its “universality”. Previous to Vatican II, one could attend Mass anywhere in the Roman Catholic world and understand the meaning of the Mass.
    Prohibition of the celebration of the Tridentine Mass (except by special ecclesiastical permission) pushed many Catholics away from the new “Modern Mass” and the New Church, in general…It took a brave Cardinal Lefebvre and the Society of St. Pius X to “push back" against Vatican II and re-legitimize the celebration of the pre-Vatican II Tridentine Mass and other Catholic rites.
    In pre-Vatican II times, the priest (celebrant of the Mass) was considered to be a part of the congregation, and a representative of the people.
    By turning the priest around to face the congregation, the priest was no longer a representative, but an “actor”, diminishing his status and importance.
    One area where the Catholic Church could improve itself involves celibacy, which is NOT Church “dogma” or doctrine. Celibacy was put in place during the middle ages in order to keep Church property from being inherited by family and relatives of priests and bishops. Celibacy was based on purely financial considerations–nothing more. It is interesting to note that Episcopal (Anglican) priests who convert to Catholicism can bring their families with them to the Church while Roman Catholic priests are denied marriage.
    It was a grave mistake by the Church to de-legitimize celebration of pre-Vatican II principles.

    Celibacy is a discipline not doctrine, but you don’t explain how changing that discipline suddenly improves the Church.

    Islam has persecuted or exterminated Christianity wherever it's invaded and been in a position to do so. It has no sense of tolerance. For the various Christian denominations, Catholic or Protestant, to encourage the movement of Islam into their areas is beyond belief. It's a poisoned pill. I can only guess that they've become fat and decadent from easy living and no longer have any relevance. In view of all the sex scandals that have emerged over the years one really has to start asking oneself about the type of person who is drawn towards becoming a clergyman. What normal, full grown man would want to become a Catholic priest? These are not normal people, neither the men nor the women, who head up the Catholic Church and most of the mainstream Protestant denominations.

    Why Predators Are Attracted to Careers in the Clergy
    Some further insight into a serious phenomenon.
    Posted Apr 20, 2014

    5. Many religious organizations preach forgiveness, even for felonies. For predators this is truly a godsend. This means that if they get caught, they can ask for forgiveness and chances are it will be given, in a pious but naïve effort to help the lawbreaker “learn from his mistakes.” Unfortunately, the predator sees this as an opportunity to sharpen his skills and to do his crime again, perhaps this time more carefully. [...]

    11. There is, it should be noted, no religion or sect that screens for psychopathy as defined by Robert Hare that I am aware of. All you need is to be ordained, or you declare yourself a religious leader and the way is clear for the predator. And so while some organizations, such as in law enforcement, screen for pathologies by using psychometric tools, very few religious organization do so. Which is why the predator would benefit from joining or leading such an organization. Across the planet, there is almost no scrutiny or due diligence that is or will be conducted. To connive, or to “con,” the predator merely needs his victim to have faith and trust in the predator something that is often easily achieved with the vestments of a legitimate religious organization.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJxZvUI697k

    Published on Mar 26, 2014

    Journalist Patsy McGarry, of The Irish Times explores the politics, perceptions, and uniquely Irish aspects of the clergy sexual abuse scandal in Ireland. McGarry has reported extensively on the Catholic Church’s response to various child sexual abuse scandals as documented by the Ferns, Ryan, and Murphy reports.

    History and Ideology leave the 'newspaper of reference' ill-equipped to cover abuse in Protestant Homes and by Protestant clergy

    https://villagemagazine.ie/index.php/2017/02/irish-times-struggles-with-non-catholic-abuse/

    Coulter, who was from a Protestant small-farming background in the west of Ireland, is now Director of the Child Care Law Reporting Project and Adjunct Professor in the School of Law, NUI Galway.

    She further observed:
    “In college I was puzzled, and sometimes irritated, by the distorted and extraordinarily benign view my Catholic friends had of the Protestant community in Ireland… [It did] not accommodate differences in historical origin, geography or class. It glosse[d] over the undeniably unpleasant aspects of this history, like the disproportionately powerful grip a section of the Protestant community held, up into the 1960s, on swathes of the Irish economy, and the religious bigotry which surfaced from time to time. Nor d[id] it accommodate the reality of the economically underprivileged in the community”.
    [...]
    Paedophilia

    Paedophilia and its cover-up is a big problem for the Roman Catholic Church. The Church’s cover-up of abuse constituted a main element of southern Irish outrage for the past 20 years.

    Perhaps there is a fear that this perception might be diffused if the seemingly more liberal Church of Ireland was dragged too deeply into the paedophile mire. Perhaps that is an Irish Times calculation.
    [...]
    Professional Paedophiles

    Paedophiles come in all shapes and sizes. In Britain they congregated in social care and in orphanages. Some were at the top of their profession. Abuse by disc-jockey Jimmy Saville and by MPs Cyril Smith, Clement Freud and (more controversially) Greville Janner, has been documented. Whereas in Ireland abuse thrived under conditions of sexual intolerance, in Britain paedophiles thought to take advantage of the so-called ‘permissive society’ in the 1970s, by promoting tolerance of child abuse. They set up the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) in 1974. PIE member Peter Righton gave the first annual ‘Barnardo’s Lecture’ in 1973 and advised the British government on child protection at the highest level during the 1980s. He systematically abused children and facilitated a network of abuse. For example, he contrived successfully to lift a prohibition on, currently imprisoned, paedophile teacher Charles Napier returning to the classroom in search of more victims. Righton obtained a reference for this purpose from child psychiatrist Morris Fraser.
    [...]
    On 4 May 2002 McGarry wondered, mistakenly, “why Irish Catholic men became the most likely sex abusers in the World”. Paedophilia is not denominationally or ethnically specific, though insisting on celibate male clergy may make it a Roman Catholic occupational hazard. In reality paedophilia is an issue wherever vulnerable children are made available in dysfunctional institutional circumstances to abusers. It can arise in family and quasi-family situations as well as in civil society organisations. Abuse came into public focus through allegations in swimming circles in the 1990s. As noted, two of the main abusers, George Gibney and Derry O’Rourke, worked in swimming pools situated in Church of Ireland ethos schools and had been part of their teaching staff.
    [...]
    The Irish Times editorialised that the Ryan Commission described ‘the map of an Irish hell’ (21 May 2009). Another editorial complained that the Roman Catholic Church had contributed only 10 per cent of the €1.3bn cost of redress for victims (27 May). It failed to point out that Protestant institutions contributed nothing. One reason why such Protestant institutions felt little pressure to pay is because newspapers like the Irish Times barely reported it and because it did not suit the interests of the state to draw attention to the issue.
     
    Some further important information and distinctions on the subject matter:

    This paper argues that pedophilia may represent a special case or subcase of psychopathy and that the main aims of both the psychopath and the pedophile are to dominate, to use, and to subjugate another person in service of the grandiose self.[...] It notes that the major differences between psychopaths and pedophiles are that the object of the predation for the pedophile is a child and that the overt behavioral manifestation of the pathology is sexual.

    Psychopathy among pedophilic and nonpedophilic child molesters.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22571910

    OBJECTIVE:
    Among men who commit sexual offenses against children, at least 2 distinct groups can be identified on the basis of the age of the primary targets of their sexual interest; pedophiles and nonpedophiles.
    METHOD:
    In the present report, across 2 independent samples of both types of child molesters as well as controls, a total of 104 men (53 pedophilic and 51 nonpedophilic) who had sexually offended against a child age 13 or younger were compared to each other (and to 49 non-sex offender controls) on psychopathy as assessed by the Psychopathic Personality Inventory (PPI).
    RESULTS:
    In both samples of child molesters, the nonpedophiles scored as significantly more psychopathic than the pedophiles.
    CONCLUSIONS:
    These results provide further evidence of the importance of distinguishing between these groups of offenders.

    Making 15 years of taxpaying (with some public interest exceptions) a prerequisite
     
    NO - ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS.

    It is difficult to see why there should be exceptions in the first place, but even accepting that an administration might feel that an immigrant deserves naturalization without having paid taxes, the law should insist that PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS CAN VOLUNTEER TO PAY TAXES ON HER BEHALF INSTEAD over 15 years to maintain eligibility for naturalization.

    Of course, stringent language tests and background checks would need to be passed 2 years into the trial period, and again at 5 year intervals in addition to the tax requirements. Candidate names will be published ahead of time to allow citizens to object.

    If a sufficient number of VOLUNTEERS cannot be found to shoulder the candidate's tax burden for 15 years, then the alleged "public interest" in the candidate's naturalization is clearly not strong enough to withstand scrutiny, and the candidate should be REJECTED.

    Well,, yes. I was thinking more in terms of lessenig the time rather than the taxpaying. Let’s say the multilingual son of a megarich Kurd whose American mother died during his birth in Berlin and who was educated at Choate and Harvard! The State Department is drooling to get him signed up and Harvard wants his Daddy’s money for the Saladin Chair in Kurdish History.

  53. There is a moral answer to this question. Does a local community (or a nation) have the right to maintain its society against invasion by a different culture? The existing culture has a large investment in its institutions and infrastructure. It in effect owns these very important material things. It also has an investment in the personal connections that make the culture work and function. And the local community has an investment in its moral underpinnings.

    If the invading culture’s offspring are going to assimilate into the local culture then there is no unsurmountable problem. The new folks join and add to the existing culture. This is beneficial, every culture needs new blood.

    However, if the new culture is going to be parasitic and only use the infrastructure and moral framework with no intention of contributing to the overall well binging of the local folks – then there is a real moral problem. The local people have every right to object. This what is happening to Europe. The Muslims move in, but do not join the culture. As time goes on the gulf between the cultures actually grows.

    The biggest problem, is when the invading culture both does not integrate and it becomes dominant. When the parasite takes over the host, the host dies.

    America is dying. The Jew culture has invaded – it has remained distinct from America’s Christian culture – and it has become dominant over our nation and culture. It is a parasite that is killing its host. Our goodness they manipulate – our institutions they control – our moral underpinnings they trash.

    It is time that the parasitic Jews are ostracized.

    (Poor Europe has major problems with both old cultures – Jews and Muslims.)

    If the Right could find little fault with immigrants during this period, liberals and the Left often showed greater hostility.

    as someone who welcomes instruction from the religious, please consider that my understanding, incomplete as it may be yet not necessarily incorrect, of the Stoic philosophy which largely characterized Hellenism, fed directly into Christianity.

    The collapse of Greece after the Pelopponesian Wars resulted in a social and political awakening which argued for Neither Greek nor Jew, nor any Otherness, but a unification of Mankind , etc.

    Out of this stew came Humanity and the universal religion, and a new politics of Empire, etc.

    Soteriology , I had to look that one up, arguably is Not in contradiction to "social problems" necessarily, if the the psychodynamic is restricted to saving souls, not health care, etc.

    The practical and non-intellectual secular part of life, if that is not contradictory in a religious society like Christianity,for centuries, just carried on in sociobiological/HBD way.. The social character of our species Naturally leads to care for family and friends, and local community.

    Thus it seems that 'the social and the political' cannot be completely set aside from the religious quest for salvation. Certainly, a hierarchy of values can put salvation first, etc.
    ---------
    What I have been thinking about lately is how the last couple of centuries have exploded into Revolution. First, this has probably happened due to the breakdown of The Church. We have seen Revolutionary movements in Protestants starting in the Reformation, and now The Church itself has decided to Revolutionize itself as well.

    Meanwhile secular society has moved toward Equality , racial equality, sexual equality, and all the leveling hysterics of our time.

    I am rereading Carl Degler's In Search of Human Nature, Stanford, 1991. The Left in general, Christianity not withstanding, began the Revolution, and influenced the revolt against Darwinism
    in social thought of huge late 19th C. Then the immigration debates in the US ca. 1900-1925 in particular, brought forward the jewish assault with Boas as academic Lenin, and Kroeber as the hardest of the hard-line Culture/History theorists, totally rejecting genes. Never mind God.

    So, the Revolution Continues, digging down into the most obscure Oppressions imaginable. Feminism began at the same time, with the language exactly the same as now....100 years ago.

    CULTURE as the great god: miracle, mystery, authority and punisher extradinaire. The high priests of Revolution in academic robes, media celebrity flashing lots of skin and money, the pillory for hate speech, etc. On it goes, the Cultural Revolution now in full swing.

    Kroeber was probably a communist...will look into that. Never mind the communist jews like Boas for now. The Age of Disbelief , per G.K. Chesterton, leading to ' people will believe in Anything' as a result, like race equality, and Globalism and borderless One World.

    Christianity always rendered unto Caesar....believed in Fate, more or less, and recognized inheritance in animals and humans...the poor we will always have with us.

    So immigration is back, and the race wars are coming, regardless of the civil religion of equality and Words....a latter day Lamarckianism, loosely interpreted. Repeat after me: We Are All One.

    Go to a a solemn high mass three times. You will at least have another perspective you’ve considered, which can only be a good thing, given your intellectual sharpness and keen grasp of history. The Latin mass will very much appeal to you, like with many intellectuals, I think.
    Go to three solemn high masses, and read this:

  66. I urge anyone who is hungry for true, uncompromising Catholicism to look for the Traditional Catholic Churches.
    We have many vocations. Tons of young priests. And we are growing at a very fast pace, all in communion with Rome.

    Bishops conferences are simply past their prime. The “Spirit of Vatican II” is pretty much dead outside of the minds of these elderly prelates. As time moves on, tradition will overtake the Church.

    God has willed that the Holy Father be who he is. He is a personally pious man, which appeals to many boomers who have left the Church and are considering returning. His politics are less than desirable, but I believe that is being done to demonstrate how flawed the “progressive” faction of the Church truly is.
    Just as Pope Benedict XVI was once Pope, the next Pope will be even more committed to restoring Christendom through the liturgy and clear doctrine. The fact that the Church has survived, and will ultimately be restored, despite leftists taking over around 1/5 of the world’s dioceses, is a sign of divine protection. Other denominations have floundered. They have “ordained” women, caved on homosexuality, religious pluralism, etc. When Cardinal Ratzinger (the Future Pope Benedict XVI) issued the statement, “Dominus Iesus,” the various Protestants and leftists within the Church panicked. They realized that the Church has truly overcome its most difficult battle, that Christ alone is Lord, and that religious pluralism will never advance past the stage of maintaining peace amongst people. They wanted to change actual doctrine, but failed.

    Multiculturalism is a massive failure. It doesn’t seem quite ruined yet, but the signs are there. The Church will survive, the West will survive. Multiculturalism will fall.

    "The modern Catholic clergy are all heretics and have been since at least the Second Vatican Council, so there is no need act as if their words issued from any sort of divine authority."

    How easy to make this assumption and thus go out into the religious world without any repercussions for your own conduct. You unilaterally impose your own prohibitions on who legitimately is a religious leader--only white men--and denounce Christianity's message that God's message is open to ALL who seek His counsel.

    "The few thoughtful and upright souls left among us must be brought to understand what contemporary society has well-nigh forgotten, viz. that the whole practice of looking at the world in terms of “social problems” that must be “treated” is itself an artifact of modernist irreligiousness."

    Only God will deem us to be "thoughtful, upright souls".

    "Neither the early Christians nor any other genuinely religious and saintly soul even thinks about social problems."

    Seriously, you are claiming that only a certain person who meets your criteria is a "genuinely religious and saintly soul". What are those standards?

    "Saint Paul would not have understood multiculturalism, and if you would have acquainted him with the subject he would have deemed the whole thing to be vanity and nonsense."

    And how are you certain that he would feel this way? What evidence suggests that he would share your sentiments? Because by reviewing Paul's letters, there are no borders in receiving the Body of Christ. Once baptized, whites and non-whites have their place at the Lord's Table of Fellowship. We are brothers and sisters. We pray and sing with one voice praise God before whom no race or ethnicity is outside of His love.

    "Dr. Tom Sunic (‘doctor”—that’s a laugh) is no better than the clergy he decries when he writes that Saint Paul’s words to the Galatians (“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus”) were in aid of a global and multiracial society. This is more modernist nonsense."

    Son, the doctor is decidedly accurate in his assessment. The bruising of the man Jesus, the servant of God, saves lost creations and reconciles them to their Creator. In the matter of salvation, ALL you seek Him will receive His gift. Again, please show me specific evidence from church teachings or Christian conferences or whatever sources you are able to muster that state only white people can only receive His grace and only white people may serve Him via the clergy.

    "Anybody who reads this passage as if social conditions were being discussed has already revealed himself to be not a Christian, for he lacks the theological virtue of faith, which is an intellectual act."

    How are you even able to make that determination? Who granted YOU this awesome responsibility? Has God spoken directly to you to be his ultimate defender in the faith?

    "In the days before the modernist mindset, Christians had no problem expelling Moors, Jews, Ottomans, and Protestants from their lands on numerous occasions. The sainted Joan of Arc even drove the English, fellow Catholics, out of France solely on the grounds that they did not belong there."

    There were mitigating political, social, and religious factors here. Do you even comprehend the complexity of these past situations?

    "“Welcoming the stranger” has nothing to do with “the form of Christianity itself.”"

    Matthew 25:40--Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brethren you did it to me. Christ identified with strangers who sought to become Christians. Once they engorged themselves with His love, once they are convinced of His supreme divinity, they are welcome with open arms. Unkindness to Christians is insulting rejection of Christ. Christianity in and of itself is "welcoming the stranger".

    "In the actual and existing conditions of the day, it is nothing but degenerate cuckoldry and treason. These so-called bishops will spend eternity in hell being sodomized with pikes and made to drink cauldrons of hot diarrhea, so that that which they craved with their filthy orifices may be satisfied, and that which they spewed out of their mouths may return to them."

    You are being overdramatic here.

    Acts 17:26

    “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.”
    You have a point, but
    I don’t think anyone is saying that salvation belongs to any one race. That is Judaism, not Christianity. Nevertheless that doesn’t entitle anyone to another’s country. Truthfully Omni-Nationalism is the only political model that truly squares with traditional Christian doctrine.
    It’s that doctrine that allows us to judge these heterodox prelates. Sure, God knows the soul, and we can’t ever be sure of the specifics, but when a bishop openly and radically denies or mutates Catholic doctrine, we know he’s wrong. Most of the time the issues aren’t subtle.

    We are allowed to have our opinions. There are too many prelates more concerned with “social” causes, which are a dead end, than the salvation of souls. If you go to the Novus Ordo mass in many places, you’ll get an earful of leftist dogma, but little discussion of the spirit.
    I’m glad I belong to a traditional parish. You should seek it out, if you’re not already involved in one- that transcends politics!

    Because of a severe shortage of priests, official Church policy allowed homosexual recruitment and acceptance into the priesthood with the understanding that they would not act on their homosexual impulses. (We know how well that worked out!).

    Over half of Catholic priests are gay, says Vatican insider

    He said that this number is even higher in the Vatican and that the church “use” the sexuality of these men to “guilt-trip” them into being better priests.

    “You have the advantage of having many gay men with a guilty conscience. They do their best to be especially smart, loyal to the Pope and hard working,” he said in an interview with German magazine Stern.

    “Which is why they have the best chances for a career and, through this, get into the Vatican.

    “There, they find a network of gay men in which people help each other out.”

    Berger worked at the Pontifical Academy of St Thomas Aquinas in Vatican City, but was forced to leave when he came out as gay.

    However, he says being gay actually helps further your career, he claimed, as “being gay is an important apparatus of power” in the Vatican and priests who come out are seen as the “ultimate threat”.
    [...]
    One survey done by a New Jersey Franciscan priest and researcher revealed that 45 percent of 500 priests surveyed volunteered that they were gay and that one in four of them had AIDS — proving a rampant promiscuity.

    Over the years, a large number of surveys, polls and research have produced a wide range of estimates of the percentage of men in the ranks of the ordained who are homosexual: as low as 15 percent all the way up to 58 percent.

    Yet, among the several skeletons in gay-basher Clark's closet is that he in fact dutifully worked as secretary for one of the most notorious, powerful and sexually voracious homosexuals in the American Catholic Church's history: the politically connected Francis Cardinal Spellman, known as "Franny" to assorted Broadway chorus boys and others, who was New York's cardinal from 1939 until his death in 1967.

    The archconservative Spellman was the epitome of the self-loathing, closeted, evil queen, working with his good friend, the closeted gay McCarthy henchman Roy Cohn, to undermine liberalism in America during the 1950s' communist and homosexual witch hunts. The church has squelched Spellman's not-so-secret gay life quite successfully, most notably by pressuring The New York Times to don the drag of the censor back in the 1980s. The Times today may be out front exposing every little nasty detail in the Catholic Church's abuse scandal?a testament to both the more open discussion of such issues today and the church's waning power in New York?but not even 20 years ago the Times was covering up Spellman's sexual secrets many years after his death, clearly fearful of the church's revenge if the paper didn't fall in line. (During Spellman's reign and long afterward, all of New York's newspapers in fact cowered before the Catholic Church. On Spellman's orders New York's department stores?owned largely by Catholics?pulled ads from the then-liberal New York Post in the 1950s after publisher Dorothy Schiff wrote commentary critical of his right-wing positions; Schiff was forced to back down on her positions.)

    I don't quite buy that it is official Church policy or that there is a severe priest shortage.

    My parish has three priests in residence. We'd probably have to stop subsidizing the parish school to provide for three wives, twelve kids, three more cars, increased housing and insurance, clothing/food and it still wouldn't be enough.

    Our priests sit in confessionals for hours, say Mass, visit multiple hospitals and in general don't have much free time to go to a kid's baseball game or out to dinner with the wife. It's that whole making yourself a eunuch for the kingdom thing that Jesus mentioned. Marriage requires sacrifice, something a faithful priest knows in spades. You want to counsel people on marriage, start by telling the participants that it requires sacrifice-modern man does not understand the notion.

    I've thought one way to increase the number of priests (if we need to) is to allow married permanent deacons who have retired from their primary careers to become priests. Their family requirements are fewer. They usually own a home and have some degree of financial stability. They've already shown a desire to serve the Church/training would be a lot easier.

    Islam is a correction of Christianity, Christianity is a little bit of truth mixed with Paul of Tarsus' blatant lies and pagan syncretism.


    All Muslims are my brothers and sisters, being a family doesn't mean that everyone is equal it just means that everyone in the family is entitled to a certain level of love and solidarity that people outside of the family aren't entitled too. I have a cousin who was born with their umbilical cord around their neck, and the partial strangulation and depravation of oxygen to the brain means that she needs to be cared for until she dies. She isn't equal to me in intelligence or skill, obviously, but that doesn't mean that I love her any less or prefer people that are more intelligent than her that are outside of the family.



    Nobody is equal, egalitarianism is a lie. God subhana wa ta'ala made us all different, without sameness there is no equality. However that doesn't mean that all human beings don't have a basic set of rights and obligations inherently, nor does it mean that all Muslims don't have an additional set of rights and obligations inherently.


    You could be a terribly stupid, disagreeable person but that doesn't deprive you of your right to not be raped. You could be a terribly stupid, disagreeable Muslim but that doesn't deprive you of your right to be fed when you're starving or clothed when you're naked.


    Unlike Christianity, Islam doesn't deny science. The thing is, whatever science tells us about you doesn't negate your personhood and/or your membership in the Ummah, and those two attributes entitle you to certain things.

    All Muslims are my brothers and sisters, being a family doesn’t mean that everyone is equal it just means that everyone in the family is entitled to a certain level of love and solidarity that people outside of the family aren’t entitled too.

    What does this mean? “All Muslims are my brothers and sisters” and “people outside of the family aren’t entitled too”

    Does this admit that Muslims see and treat fellow Muslims one way, and non-Muslims another?

    Peace — Art

    p.s. As a Christian, I agree 100% that people are not equal – that they are different – and that is a good thing. Differences make exchanges between people possible. Equals have the same things – thus they have nothing to trade.

    So what went wrong? According to McCarthy, the caps were eroded away continuously on an ad hoc basis to adapt to immigration pressures that often were the result of American foreign policy. Cubans were given a welcome mat almost immediately, Vietnamese and other refugees from the failed Vietnam War were allowed in, as were people disrupted by Central American wars pursued by president Reagan.

    Fiery Bob Dornan had originally unseated a Democratic incumbent in his Orange County congressional district thanks to a local influx of anti-Communist Vietnamese refugees, and his unbending anti-abortionism regularly won him many Latino votes; in his appearances on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show, Dornan scathingly denounced anti-immigrant activists.

    If the Right could find little fault with immigrants during this period, liberals and the Left often showed greater hostility. Environmentalists pushing for slow-growth economic measures often locked horns with Latino (and black) elected officials from working-class districts where the paramount issue was jobs rather than “quality of life”

    Nice info. You definitely have some valid points. I still don't think the Catholic Church is at the center of it all, though. Some of your articles sound like they trail off from the initial topic, and don't explain WHY the Catholic Church would want an open borders policy.

    In fact, the Catholic Church being the leader of the NWO line is probably a major distraction. Look at the UN. The UN is literally structured as a global one-world government, which all but a few countries are a part of (the Vatican NOT being part of it), even countries that are considered bitterly hostile to each other. With almost every country in the world part of the UN, that means a lot more money and power being poured into it from nations part of it than that of the Catholic Church. And that is the ultimate plan: a one-world totalitarian government that suppresses national sovereignty, religion, ethnic distinctions, and tradition (all to prevent opposition) to name a few. Interestingly, hardly anyone seems to pay attention to the UN as it lurks in the background.

    Besides, the Catholic Church over the past hundreds of years has only declined in political power and cultural influence around the world (especially in the West), and still is today. It also has repeatedly throughout much of its history condemned freemasonry. Catholic Prime Minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi even struck a deal with Gaddafi to prevent mass illegal immigration. When the two of them were ousted from power by Obama, Cameron, and Sarkozy, that was when the migrant crisis that we see today began. This is not to mention that the "Jesuit" idea of "liberation theology" was actually a KGB invention:

    https://www.thenewamerican.com/culture/faith-and-morals/item/20840-communist-defector-says-kgb-created-liberation-theology
    http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/05/02/highest-ranking-cold-war-defector-the-kgb-invented-liberation-theology/

    http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/former-soviet-spy-we-created-liberation-theology-83634/

    As for the Jewish involvement, leading communists Marx, Engels, Lenin, and Trotsky were all Jewish, as are many of the elite leaders of many Western governments. Additionally, the world really seems to revolve more around Israel than the Vatican. Most Israelis are secular and are false Jews that are Ashkenazi. While not all Jews are NWO, many NWO agents are Jews.

    This is not to deny NWO involvement by people in the Catholic Church, as well as some of the Popes (and most certainly Pope Francis). Hardly any political elite member of any country is not in the NWO. Churches also are often infiltrated with many wolves in sheep's clothing who are ultimately NWO agents, like with the KGB liberation theology scenario. Nonetheless, the Catholic Church is not the core of the NWO. As Catholic power has decreased, Jewish banking power has increased, and continues to do so.

    The Catholic Church is a private organization. Its influence will not be the same as the globalist nations who can legislate ethnic and cultural suicide.

    Because of a severe shortage of priests, official Church policy allowed homosexual recruitment and acceptance into the priesthood with the understanding that they would not act on their homosexual impulses. (We know how well that worked out!).
    As it turned out, homosexuals saw the priesthood as a good "cover" for their homosexual behavior (plus a source (and accessibility) of young impressionable boys in the Catholic Church system). The scandal was so bad, that once homosexuals got control of the seminary system, they were able to select their own kind--keeping out promising heterosexual candidates. This was known as the "lavender lobby" in the seminary system.
    The Catholic Church could well absorb the additional costs of a family; this would actually lend to the credibility of priests who counsel on marriage issues. Most Catholic priests do not take a vow of poverty; only those in some religious orders do...
    As a postscript, it would be interesting to see how many bishops and cardinals are themselves homosexuals...

    I don’t quite buy that it is official Church policy or that there is a severe priest shortage.

    My parish has three priests in residence. We’d probably have to stop subsidizing the parish school to provide for three wives, twelve kids, three more cars, increased housing and insurance, clothing/food and it still wouldn’t be enough.

    Our priests sit in confessionals for hours, say Mass, visit multiple hospitals and in general don’t have much free time to go to a kid’s baseball game or out to dinner with the wife. It’s that whole making yourself a eunuch for the kingdom thing that Jesus mentioned. Marriage requires sacrifice, something a faithful priest knows in spades. You want to counsel people on marriage, start by telling the participants that it requires sacrifice-modern man does not understand the notion.

    I’ve thought one way to increase the number of priests (if we need to) is to allow married permanent deacons who have retired from their primary careers to become priests. Their family requirements are fewer. They usually own a home and have some degree of financial stability. They’ve already shown a desire to serve the Church/training would be a lot easier.

  78. When the Church becomes powerful, it becomes a secular actor, and no longer primarily a religious enterprise. That’s why the Reformation was needed.
    A second Reformation is happening. The Methodists, Congregationals, Presbyterians and other mainline churches have become Progressive political bodies and are being abandoned by the faithful.

  79. Those Bishops are the same as their ancestors. They sacked Constantinople during the crusades because Constantinople had a different mind set. They were Orthodox. So now a day, Bishops of the Catholic faith and others, refuse to see the new Saracens invading their lands, and some day another Isabel of Spain will rise to the occasion and spell the same people that was spelled out of Spain. This time might be all of Europe.

    In view of all the sex scandals that have emerged over the years one really has to start asking oneself about the type of person who is drawn towards becoming a clergyman. What normal, full grown man would want to become a Catholic priest? These are not normal people, neither the men nor the women, who head up the Catholic Church and most of the mainstream Protestant denominations.

    Why Predators Are Attracted to Careers in the Clergy
    Some further insight into a serious phenomenon.
    Posted Apr 20, 2014

    5. Many religious organizations preach forgiveness, even for felonies. For predators this is truly a godsend. This means that if they get caught, they can ask for forgiveness and chances are it will be given, in a pious but naïve effort to help the lawbreaker “learn from his mistakes.” Unfortunately, the predator sees this as an opportunity to sharpen his skills and to do his crime again, perhaps this time more carefully. [...]

    11. There is, it should be noted, no religion or sect that screens for psychopathy as defined by Robert Hare that I am aware of. All you need is to be ordained, or you declare yourself a religious leader and the way is clear for the predator. And so while some organizations, such as in law enforcement, screen for pathologies by using psychometric tools, very few religious organization do so. Which is why the predator would benefit from joining or leading such an organization. Across the planet, there is almost no scrutiny or due diligence that is or will be conducted. To connive, or to “con,” the predator merely needs his victim to have faith and trust in the predator something that is often easily achieved with the vestments of a legitimate religious organization.

    Child Sexual Abuse and the Catholic Church: An Irish Disease and or Global Phenomenon

    Published on Mar 26, 2014

McGarry has reported extensively on the Catholic Church’s response to various child sexual abuse scandals as documented by the Ferns, Ryan, and Murphy reports.

    Professional Paedophiles

    Paedophiles come in all shapes and sizes. In Britain they congregated in social care and in orphanages. Some were at the top of their profession. Abuse by disc-jockey Jimmy Saville and by MPs Cyril Smith, Clement Freud and (more controversially) Greville Janner, has been documented. Whereas in Ireland abuse thrived under conditions of sexual intolerance, in Britain paedophiles thought to take advantage of the so-called ‘permissive society’ in the 1970s, by promoting tolerance of child abuse. They set up the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) in 1974. PIE member Peter Righton gave the first annual ‘Barnardo’s Lecture’ in 1973 and advised the British government on child protection at the highest level during the 1980s. He systematically abused children and facilitated a network of abuse. For example, he contrived successfully to lift a prohibition on, currently imprisoned, paedophile teacher Charles Napier returning to the classroom in search of more victims. Righton obtained a reference for this purpose from child psychiatrist Morris Fraser.
    [...]
    On 4 May 2002 McGarry wondered, mistakenly, “why Irish Catholic men became the most likely sex abusers in the World”. Paedophilia is not denominationally or ethnically specific, though insisting on celibate male clergy may make it a Roman Catholic occupational hazard. In reality paedophilia is an issue wherever vulnerable children are made available in dysfunctional institutional circumstances to abusers. It can arise in family and quasi-family situations as well as in civil society organisations. Abuse came into public focus through allegations in swimming circles in the 1990s. As noted, two of the main abusers, George Gibney and Derry O’Rourke, worked in swimming pools situated in Church of Ireland ethos schools and had been part of their teaching staff.
    [...]
    The Irish Times editorialised that the Ryan Commission described ‘the map of an Irish hell’ (21 May 2009). Another editorial complained that the Roman Catholic Church had contributed only 10 per cent of the €1.3bn cost of redress for victims (27 May). It failed to point out that Protestant institutions contributed nothing. One reason why such Protestant institutions felt little pressure to pay is because newspapers like the Irish Times barely reported it and because it did not suit the interests of the state to draw attention to the issue.

    Some further important information and distinctions on the subject matter:

    This paper argues that pedophilia may represent a special case or subcase of psychopathy and that the main aims of both the psychopath and the pedophile are to dominate, to use, and to subjugate another person in service of the grandiose self.[...] It notes that the major differences between psychopaths and pedophiles are that the object of the predation for the pedophile is a child and that the overt behavioral manifestation of the pathology is sexual.

    Psychopathy among pedophilic and nonpedophilic child molesters.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22571910

    OBJECTIVE:
    Among men who commit sexual offenses against children, at least 2 distinct groups can be identified on the basis of the age of the primary targets of their sexual interest; pedophiles and nonpedophiles.
    METHOD:
    In the present report, across 2 independent samples of both types of child molesters as well as controls, a total of 104 men (53 pedophilic and 51 nonpedophilic) who had sexually offended against a child age 13 or younger were compared to each other (and to 49 non-sex offender controls) on psychopathy as assessed by the Psychopathic Personality Inventory (PPI).
    RESULTS:
    In both samples of child molesters, the nonpedophiles scored as significantly more psychopathic than the pedophiles.
    CONCLUSIONS:
    These results provide further evidence of the importance of distinguishing between these groups of offenders.

    I would like to partially challenge this statement from the article I quoted. This is highly speculative and controversial research I have been conducting, but I think it is worth sharing here. My theory is, that somehow -- I don't know how exactly yet -- red hair contributes to higher rates of sexual abuse, violence, etc., and could explain why one can find higher rates of sexual abuse among the Irish, and maybe other red-haired inhabitants of the British Isles, who have the highest prevalence of red hair in the world:

    This is the article by Patsy McGarry from 2002:

    An Irish disease?
    Sat, May 4, 2002
    http://www.irishtimes.com/news/an-irish-disease-1.1056148

    Defining sexual abuse as being either of the contact or non-contact variety - the latter being where a person was forced to look at pornography or watch sexual acts - the survey found that 30 per cent of the Irish women interviewed and 24 per cent of the Irish men had been sexually abused as children. One can only imagine what such figures were for the dead generations.

    In the rest of Europe, the figures for child sex abuse are 17 per cent for women and 5 per cent for men. In the US, they are 29 per cent for women and 7 per cent for men.
    [...]
    Commenting on the findings, Prof David Finkelhor, director of the Crimes Against Children Research Centre at the University of New Hampshire in the US, remarked that Ireland has "a more serious problem" with child sexual abuse than either the rest of Europe or North America.
     

    In Ireland, the percentage of population with red hair is estimated to be at around 10%.[11][12][13] According to Britain’s DNA, 34.7% of the Irish population carry the allele for red hair, although this doesn’t directly translate proportionally into births of red-haired children.

    Anglicans seem to be the least crime-prone, i.e., the most civilised group/culture by this, admittedly rather crude, measurement. However, even Catholics can’t quite keep up with Muslims, as cousin marriage appears to have a highly uncivilising and dysgenic effect:

    24% of prisoners in 2010 claimed to be Anglicans [ ~ 45% of population], 17% Roman Catholics [ ~ 10% of population], 7% other Christians, 12% Muslims [ ~ 5% of population], and 5% of other faiths.

    Red hair is also found amongst the Ashkenazi Jewish populations.[30] In 1903, 5.6% of Polish Jews had red hair.[31] Other studies have found that 3.69% of Jewish women overall were found to have red hair, but around 10.9% of all Jewish men have red beards.[32] In European culture, prior to the 20th century, red hair was often seen as a stereotypically Jewish trait

    The low-activity MAOA alleles in combination with a variant of the MC1R gene might be the key to fully understanding the potentially partially genetic underpinnings of sexual abuse/violence. Again, this is very much speculation at this point, and I could be completely wrong on this issue, of course:

    Variants of the melanocyte−stimulating hormone receptor gene are associated with red hair and fair skin in humans https://www.nature.com/ng/journal/v11/n3/abs/ng1195-328.html Valverde et al. (1995)

    We now report the presence of MC1R gene sequence variants in humans. These were found in over 80% of individuals with red hair and/or fair skin that tans poorly but in fewer than 20% of individuals with brown or black hair and in less than 4% of those who showed a good tanning response. Our findings suggest that in humans, as in other mammals, the MC1R is a control point in the regulation of pigmentation phenotype and, more importantly, that variations in this protein are associated with a poor tanning response.
     
    Sexual offending runs in families: A 37-year nationwide study Langström et al. (2015)

    Statistical modelling of the strength and patterns of familial aggregation suggested that genetic factors (40%) and non-shared environmental factors (58%) explained the liability to offend sexually more than shared environmental influences (2%). Further, genetic effects tended to be weaker for rape of an adult (19%) than for child molestation (46%).

    Conclusions: We report strong evidence of familial clustering of sexual offending, primarily accounted for by genes rather than shared environmental influences. Future research should possibly test the effectiveness of selective prevention efforts for male first-degree relatives of sexually aggressive individuals, and consider familial risk in sexual violence risk assessment.

One reason why such Protestant institutions felt little pressure to pay is because newspapers like the Irish Times barely reported it and because it did not suit the interests of the state to draw attention to the issue.
     
    Some further important information and distinctions on the subject matter:

    This paper argues that pedophilia may represent a special case or subcase of psychopathy and that the main aims of both the psychopath and the pedophile are to dominate, to use, and to subjugate another person in service of the grandiose self.[...] It notes that the major differences between psychopaths and pedophiles are that the object of the predation for the pedophile is a child and that the overt behavioral manifestation of the pathology is sexual.

    Psychopathy among pedophilic and nonpedophilic child molesters.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22571910

    OBJECTIVE:
    Among men who commit sexual offenses against children, at least 2 distinct groups can be identified on the basis of the age of the primary targets of their sexual interest; pedophiles and nonpedophiles.
    METHOD:
    In the present report, across 2 independent samples of both types of child molesters as well as controls, a total of 104 men (53 pedophilic and 51 nonpedophilic) who had sexually offended against a child age 13 or younger were compared to each other (and to 49 non-sex offender controls) on psychopathy as assessed by the Psychopathic Personality Inventory (PPI).
    RESULTS:
    In both samples of child molesters, the nonpedophiles scored as significantly more psychopathic than the pedophiles.
    CONCLUSIONS:
    These results provide further evidence of the importance of distinguishing between these groups of offenders.

    On 4 May 2002 McGarry wondered, mistakenly, “why Irish Catholic men became the most likely sex abusers in the World”. Paedophilia is not denominationally or ethnically specific,

    I would like to partially challenge this statement from the article I quoted. This is highly speculative and controversial research I have been conducting, but I think it is worth sharing here. My theory is, that somehow — I don’t know how exactly yet — red hair contributes to higher rates of sexual abuse, violence, etc., and could explain why one can find higher rates of sexual abuse among the Irish, and maybe other red-haired inhabitants of the British Isles, who have the highest prevalence of red hair in the world:

One can only imagine what such figures were for the dead generations.

    In the rest of Europe, the figures for child sex abuse are 17 per cent for women and 5 per cent for men. In the US, they are 29 per cent for women and 7 per cent for men.

    Red hair is also found amongst the Ashkenazi Jewish populations.[30] In 1903, 5.6% of Polish Jews had red hair.[31] Other studies have found that 3.69% of Jewish women overall were found to have red hair, but around 10.9% of all Jewish men have red beards.[32] In European culture, prior to the 20th century, red hair was often seen as a stereotypically Jewish trait

    The low-activity MAOA alleles in combination with a variant of the MC1R gene might be the key to fully understanding the potentially partially genetic underpinnings of sexual abuse/violence.

    We now report the presence of MC1R gene sequence variants in humans. These were found in over 80% of individuals with red hair and/or fair skin that tans poorly but in fewer than 20% of individuals with brown or black hair and in less than 4% of those who showed a good tanning response. Our findings suggest that in humans, as in other mammals, the MC1R is a control point in the regulation of pigmentation phenotype and, more importantly, that variations in this protein are associated with a poor tanning response.

    Statistical modelling of the strength and patterns of familial aggregation suggested that genetic factors (40%) and non-shared environmental factors (58%) explained the liability to offend sexually more than shared environmental influences (2%). Further, genetic effects tended to be weaker for rape of an adult (19%) than for child molestation (46%).

    Conclusions: We report strong evidence of familial clustering of sexual offending, primarily accounted for by genes rather than shared environmental influences. Future research should possibly test the effectiveness of selective prevention efforts for male first-degree relatives of sexually aggressive individuals, and consider familial risk in sexual violence risk assessment.

    The Myths and History of Red Hair

    Orangejews: The Real History of Druids, Jews and Protestantism

    Red hair takes us nicely into the Tudor (Judah?) period. I've mentioned elsewhere on this website the preponderance of red-haired kings, queens and political leaders, so I won't rehash it. What I will rehash is the link between red hair and Protestantism. Red (or rather orange) seems to have a been a totem of the Protestant movement, from Elizabeth the First to Oliver Cromwell.

    We're often told that the association between the colour orange and Protestantism goes back to William of Orange, but in fact it goes much further. The 'orange tawny' was the colour of the Devereux, Earls of Essex and was adopted as the colour of the Parliamentarians during the English Civil War.

    Why orange? I've often wondered this. Maybe the Protestant movement stemmed from a remnant Jewish strand in the culture of the northern European states. Maybe red hair became a symbol of this - either consciously or unconsciously so.

    The Protestant movement was also heavily linked with trading and shipping interests, both in Britain and on the continent. The Protestant middle-class city and town dwellers seem in type to parallel the trading Jewish guildsmen associated with the Scottish Jews mentioned above, and the various other Jewish peoples associated with merchant cities in history - and in the popular imagination (think The Merchant of Venice).

    When you look at images of Protestant merchants and priests of the period they look almost indistinguishable from their Jewish counterparts. In fact, that arch-reformer Thomas Cromwell - money-lender, dressed in black, despised by the Catholic church - could have sprang straight from that very archetype.

    Cromwell's Head

    Yes, Cromwell had his flaws, but ultimately he was a good man. The Kings and Queens which we talk of with such ease and merriment were tyrants of the worst kind. They waged endless wars with nothing but self-interest in mind, killing anyone unfortunate enough to get in their way - even their own family members were not spared the sword or chopping axe. Cromwell, however, he was cut from a different cloth. He acted, not in self-interest, but in the interests of England and the wider world. Of course, people will debate and criticise, and quite rightly so, but the fact remains that the modern world stands squarely on the shoulders of Oliver Cromwell. Had he not been victorious in those bloody battles the world would surely be a very darker place.

    For instance, the American Revolution and modern democracy can trace their very roots back to the English Civil Wars. The scientific enlightenment, instigated by the likes of Newton, Hooke and Boyle, had its genesis in the days of the English Republic. And the Catholic Church, which had crushed dissenting voices so many times before, no doubt would have done so again were it not for the Protestant stronghold of Britain.

    The low-activity MAOA alleles in combination with a variant of the MC1R gene might be the key to fully understanding the potentially partially genetic underpinnings of sexual abuse/violence.
     
    Only very little research has been done in this area so far, but red hair seems to increase a person's libido/sex drive:


    Do gingers have higher sex drives?

    That redheads have higher libidos is certainly a popular stereotype. Whether it's actually true, though, is not well-studied.

    One study, by Hamburg, Germany sex researcher Werner Habermehl, found that it was true. There are some serious questions about the quality of the finding, however[1].

    It's possible that among the various chemical differences that result from the MC1R gene (which include a greater likelihood of getting skin cancer and a higher pain threshold, except thermal pain), there's a higher libido, but it hasn't yet been shown conclusively[2].
    [...]
    A study in Germany said that redheads do have more sex than brown and blonde haired people. Women think of sex like men do and as a redhead, I can say that I do want sex more than most other guys.
     
    - https://www.quora.com/Do-gingers-have-higher-sex-drives

    And the three major Irish famines could have potentially selected for the low-activity MAOA alleles in the Irish population:
    1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Famine_(1740%E2%80%9341)
    2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Famine_(Ireland)
    3. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Famine_(1879)

    But other personality factors besides intelligence could lead to fortune. One could even keep this with a psychological Darwinian orientation by suggesting that risk taking, or aggressiveness-both traits often claimed to have genetic bases-led to great profit. — Jews (2R 1.3%; 3R 62%) carry low-activity MAOA at much higher rates than Whites (2R 0.2%; 3R 36%)
    [...]
    Because of the harsh conditions of day-to-day life in the Pale, some two million Jews emigrated from there between 1881 and 1914, mainly to the United States.[8] However, this exodus did not affect the stability of the Jewish population of the Pale, which remained at 5 million people due to its high birthrate.
    [...]
    These differences in the allele frequencies of certain genes between Europeans and other cultures/races is likely due to the different cultural and environmental selection pressures on the different groups
    [...]
    It seems that very harsh and “Social Darwinist” environments and cultures do not necessarily select for intelligence exclusively, or maybe not even predominately, but that they mostly select for risk taking, aggressiveness, ruthlessness, i.e., psychopathic and rather anti-social traits.

    This, in my opinion, could be a plausible explanation for the above-average sexual abuse/violence rates in Ireland compared to the rest of Europe:

    MAOA expression predicts vulnerability for alcohol use. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26148813 Cervera-Juanes et al. (2015)

    These results provide novel evidence that blood MAOA expression predicts alcohol consumption and that heavy alcohol use is linked to low MAOA expression in both the blood and NAc core. Together, the findings suggest a mechanistic link between dampened MAOA expression, elevated DA and alcohol abuse.

    Alcohol and Sexual Violence in Ireland: Understanding the Scope of the Problem

    http://www.rcni.ie/alcohol-and-sexual-violence-in-ireland-understanding-the-scope-of-the-problem/


    The frequency of binge drinking in Ireland is the highest in Europe, with 44% of Irish respondents who had consumed alcohol in the past 12 months indicating that they had been binge drinking at least once a week.
    [...]
    In Ireland, the levels of binge drinking on the occasion of the rape are extraordinarily high compared to European and North American states. Rape and Justice in Ireland identified that:

    88% of defendants on trial for rape had been binge drinking at the time of the rape.
    45% of complainants and 40% of suspects of reported rape between 2000 and 2005 in Ireland had been binge drinking on the occasion of the rape.

    The United States of America is the Vatican's golden goose:

    The Catholic church is as big as any company in America. Bankruptcy cases have shed some light on its finances and their mismanagement

    http://www.economist.com/node/21560536

    The American church may account for as much as 60% of the global institution’s wealth. Little surprise, then, that it is the biggest contributor to head office (ahead of Germany, Italy and France). Everything from renovations to St Peter’s Basilica in Rome to the Pontifical Gregorian University, the church’s version of West Point, is largely paid for with American money.

    Where that money comes from is hard to say (the church does not release numbers on this either). Some of it is from the offerings of the faithful. Anecdotal evidence suggests that America’s Catholics give about $10 per week on average. Assuming that one-third attend church regularly, that would put the annual offertory income at around $13 billion. More comes from elite groups of large donors such as the Papal Foundation, based in Pennsylvania, whose 138 members pledge to donate at least $1m annually, and Legatus, a group of more than 2,000 Catholic business leaders that was founded by Tom Monaghan of Domino’s Pizza.
     

    The charge is that the Vatican strongly desires to see a Catholic majority in America so that the Vatican can exercise much greater, if not complete, control over the American democratic process, in the same way that the Vatican controlled the government of Italy for decades through the Christian Democratic Party. Many authors have advanced this idea. I have read this charge time and again over the past decade or so, and, until recently, I thought the idea ridiculous. But after observing the Church’s bold and thinly veiled actions in the Reagan Administration, I now believe these authors are probably describing reality. If 150 million Latin Americans legally and illegally migrate to the United States in the next twenty to thirty years, this apparent goal can be achieved. And, as I discussed at length in chapter two,[6] these numbers are demonstrably not farfetched.
    [...]
    If the United States government shows no more willingness to deal with illegal immigration than has been shown by the Reagan Administration, then a migration from Latin America of the magnitude described above is certainly imminent. A Catholic majority in the United States and Vatican control of our government would greatly enhance the power of the Church not only in this country but worldwide.

    The Catholic church is as big as any company in America. Bankruptcy cases have shed some light on its finances and their mismanagement

    The American church may account for as much as 60% of the global institution’s wealth. Little surprise, then, that it is the biggest contributor to head office (ahead of Germany, Italy and France). Everything from renovations to St Peter’s Basilica in Rome to the Pontifical Gregorian University, the church’s version of West Point, is largely paid for with American money.

    Where that money comes from is hard to say (the church does not release numbers on this either). Some of it is from the offerings of the faithful. Anecdotal evidence suggests that America’s Catholics give about $10 per week on average. Assuming that one-third attend church regularly, that would put the annual offertory income at around $13 billion. More comes from elite groups of large donors such as the Papal Foundation, based in Pennsylvania, whose 138 members pledge to donate at least $1m annually, and Legatus, a group of more than 2,000 Catholic business leaders that was founded by Tom Monaghan of Domino’s Pizza.

    The charge is that the Vatican strongly desires to see a Catholic majority in America so that the Vatican can exercise much greater, if not complete, control over the American democratic process, in the same way that the Vatican controlled the government of Italy for decades through the Christian Democratic Party. Many authors have advanced this idea. I have read this charge time and again over the past decade or so, and, until recently, I thought the idea ridiculous. But after observing the Church’s bold and thinly veiled actions in the Reagan Administration, I now believe these authors are probably describing reality. If 150 million Latin Americans legally and illegally migrate to the United States in the next twenty to thirty years, this apparent goal can be achieved. And, as I discussed at length in chapter two,[6] these numbers are demonstrably not farfetched.
    [...]
    If the United States government shows no more willingness to deal with illegal immigration than has been shown by the Reagan Administration, then a migration from Latin America of the magnitude described above is certainly imminent. A Catholic majority in the United States and Vatican control of our government would greatly enhance the power of the Church not only in this country but worldwide.

    On 4 May 2002 McGarry wondered, mistakenly, “why Irish Catholic men became the most likely sex abusers in the World”. Paedophilia is not denominationally or ethnically specific,
     
    I would like to partially challenge this statement from the article I quoted. This is highly speculative and controversial research I have been conducting, but I think it is worth sharing here. My theory is, that somehow -- I don't know how exactly yet -- red hair contributes to higher rates of sexual abuse, violence, etc., and could explain why one can find higher rates of sexual abuse among the Irish, and maybe other red-haired inhabitants of the British Isles, who have the highest prevalence of red hair in the world:

    This is the article by Patsy McGarry from 2002:

    An Irish disease?
    Sat, May 4, 2002
    http://www.irishtimes.com/news/an-irish-disease-1.1056148

    Defining sexual abuse as being either of the contact or non-contact variety - the latter being where a person was forced to look at pornography or watch sexual acts - the survey found that 30 per cent of the Irish women interviewed and 24 per cent of the Irish men had been sexually abused as children. One can only imagine what such figures were for the dead generations.

    In the rest of Europe, the figures for child sex abuse are 17 per cent for women and 5 per cent for men. In the US, they are 29 per cent for women and 7 per cent for men.
    [...]
    Commenting on the findings, Prof David Finkelhor, director of the Crimes Against Children Research Centre at the University of New Hampshire in the US, remarked that Ireland has "a more serious problem" with child sexual abuse than either the rest of Europe or North America.
     

    In Ireland, the percentage of population with red hair is estimated to be at around 10%.[11][12][13] According to Britain’s DNA, 34.7% of the Irish population carry the allele for red hair, although this doesn’t directly translate proportionally into births of red-haired children.

    Some interesting connections. But just anecdotal evidence and speculation at this point:

    Anglicans seem to be the least crime-prone, i.e., the most civilised group/culture by this, admittedly rather crude, measurement. However, even Catholics can’t quite keep up with Muslims, as cousin marriage appears to have a highly uncivilising and dysgenic effect:

    24% of prisoners in 2010 claimed to be Anglicans [ ~ 45% of population], 17% Roman Catholics [ ~ 10% of population], 7% other Christians, 12% Muslims [ ~ 5% of population], and 5% of other faiths.

    Red hair is also found amongst the Ashkenazi Jewish populations.[30] In 1903, 5.6% of Polish Jews had red hair.[31] Other studies have found that 3.69% of Jewish women overall were found to have red hair, but around 10.9% of all Jewish men have red beards.[32] In European culture, prior to the 20th century, red hair was often seen as a stereotypically Jewish trait

    The low-activity MAOA alleles in combination with a variant of the MC1R gene might be the key to fully understanding the potentially partially genetic underpinnings of sexual abuse/violence. Again, this is very much speculation at this point, and I could be completely wrong on this issue, of course:

    Variants of the melanocyte−stimulating hormone receptor gene are associated with red hair and fair skin in humans https://www.nature.com/ng/journal/v11/n3/abs/ng1195-328.html Valverde et al. (1995)

    We now report the presence of MC1R gene sequence variants in humans. These were found in over 80% of individuals with red hair and/or fair skin that tans poorly but in fewer than 20% of individuals with brown or black hair and in less than 4% of those who showed a good tanning response. Our findings suggest that in humans, as in other mammals, the MC1R is a control point in the regulation of pigmentation phenotype and, more importantly, that variations in this protein are associated with a poor tanning response.
     
    Sexual offending runs in families: A 37-year nationwide study Langström et al. (2015)

    Statistical modelling of the strength and patterns of familial aggregation suggested that genetic factors (40%) and non-shared environmental factors (58%) explained the liability to offend sexually more than shared environmental influences (2%). Further, genetic effects tended to be weaker for rape of an adult (19%) than for child molestation (46%).

    Conclusions: We report strong evidence of familial clustering of sexual offending, primarily accounted for by genes rather than shared environmental influences. Future research should possibly test the effectiveness of selective prevention efforts for male first-degree relatives of sexually aggressive individuals, and consider familial risk in sexual violence risk assessment.
     

    The low-activity MAOA alleles in combination with a variant of the MC1R gene might be the key to fully understanding the potentially partially genetic underpinnings of sexual abuse/violence.

    Only very little research has been done in this area so far, but red hair seems to increase a person’s libido/sex drive:

    [MORE]

    Do gingers have higher sex drives?

    That redheads have higher libidos is certainly a popular stereotype. Whether it’s actually true, though, is not well-studied.

    One study, by Hamburg, Germany sex researcher Werner Habermehl, found that it was true. There are some serious questions about the quality of the finding, however[1].

    It’s possible that among the various chemical differences that result from the MC1R gene (which include a greater likelihood of getting skin cancer and a higher pain threshold, except thermal pain), there’s a higher libido, but it hasn’t yet been shown conclusively[2].
    [...]
    A study in Germany said that redheads do have more sex than brown and blonde haired people. Women think of sex like men do and as a redhead, I can say that I do want sex more than most other guys.

    https://www.quora.com/Do-gingers-have-higher-sex-drives

    And the three major Irish famines could have potentially selected for the low-activity MAOA alleles in the Irish population:
    1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Famine_(1740%E2%80%9341)
    2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Famine_(Ireland)
    3. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Famine_(1879)

    But other personality factors besides intelligence could lead to fortune. One could even keep this with a psychological Darwinian orientation by suggesting that risk taking, or aggressiveness-both traits often claimed to have genetic bases-led to great profit. — Jews (2R 1.3%; 3R 62%) carry low-activity MAOA at much higher rates than Whites (2R 0.2%; 3R 36%)
    [...]
    Because of the harsh conditions of day-to-day life in the Pale, some two million Jews emigrated from there between 1881 and 1914, mainly to the United States.[8] However, this exodus did not affect the stability of the Jewish population of the Pale, which remained at 5 million people due to its high birthrate.
    [...]
    These differences in the allele frequencies of certain genes between Europeans and other cultures/races is likely due to the different cultural and environmental selection pressures on the different groups
    [...]
    It seems that very harsh and “Social Darwinist” environments and cultures do not necessarily select for intelligence exclusively, or maybe not even predominately, but that they mostly select for risk taking, aggressiveness, ruthlessness, i.e., psychopathic and rather anti-social traits.

    This, in my opinion, could be a plausible explanation for the above-average sexual abuse/violence rates in Ireland compared to the rest of Europe:

    MAOA expression predicts vulnerability for alcohol use. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26148813 Cervera-Juanes et al. (2015)

    These results provide novel evidence that blood MAOA expression predicts alcohol consumption and that heavy alcohol use is linked to low MAOA expression in both the blood and NAc core. Together, the findings suggest a mechanistic link between dampened MAOA expression, elevated DA and alcohol abuse.

    From the Rape Crisis Network Ireland website:

    Alcohol and Sexual Violence in Ireland: Understanding the Scope of the Problem

    http://www.rcni.ie/alcohol-and-sexual-violence-in-ireland-understanding-the-scope-of-the-problem/

    The frequency of binge drinking in Ireland is the highest in Europe, with 44% of Irish respondents who had consumed alcohol in the past 12 months indicating that they had been binge drinking at least once a week.
    [...]
    In Ireland, the levels of binge drinking on the occasion of the rape are extraordinarily high compared to European and North American states. Rape and Justice in Ireland identified that:

    88% of defendants on trial for rape had been binge drinking at the time of the rape.
    45% of complainants and 40% of suspects of reported rape between 2000 and 2005 in Ireland had been binge drinking on the occasion of the rape.

    If the Right could find little fault with immigrants during this period, liberals and the Left often showed greater hostility.

    Nice info. You definitely have some valid points. I still don’t think the Catholic Church is at the center of it all, though. Some of your articles sound like they trail off from the initial topic, and don’t explain WHY the Catholic Church would want an open borders policy.

    In fact, the Catholic Church being the leader of the NWO line is probably a major distraction. Look at the UN. The UN is literally structured as a global one-world government, which all but a few countries are a part of (the Vatican NOT being part of it), even countries that are considered bitterly hostile to each other. With almost every country in the world part of the UN, that means a lot more money and power being poured into it from nations part of it than that of the Catholic Church. And that is the ultimate plan: a one-world totalitarian government that suppresses national sovereignty, religion, ethnic distinctions, and tradition (all to prevent opposition) to name a few. Interestingly, hardly anyone seems to pay attention to the UN as it lurks in the background.

    Besides, the Catholic Church over the past hundreds of years has only declined in political power and cultural influence around the world (especially in the West), and still is today. It also has repeatedly throughout much of its history condemned freemasonry. Catholic Prime Minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi even struck a deal with Gaddafi to prevent mass illegal immigration. When the two of them were ousted from power by Obama, Cameron, and Sarkozy, that was when the migrant crisis that we see today began. This is not to mention that the “Jesuit” idea of “liberation theology” was actually a KGB invention:

    https://www.thenewamerican.com/culture/faith-and-morals/item/20840-communist-defector-says-kgb-created-liberation-theology

    http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/former-soviet-spy-we-created-liberation-theology-83634/

    As for the Jewish involvement, leading communists Marx, Engels, Lenin, and Trotsky were all Jewish, as are many of the elite leaders of many Western governments. Additionally, the world really seems to revolve more around Israel than the Vatican. Most Israelis are secular and are false Jews that are Ashkenazi. While not all Jews are NWO, many NWO agents are Jews.

    This is not to deny NWO involvement by people in the Catholic Church, as well as some of the Popes (and most certainly Pope Francis). Hardly any political elite member of any country is not in the NWO. Churches also are often infiltrated with many wolves in sheep’s clothing who are ultimately NWO agents, like with the KGB liberation theology scenario. Nonetheless, the Catholic Church is not the core of the NWO. As Catholic power has decreased, Jewish banking power has increased, and continues to do so.

    The Catholic Church is a private organization. Its influence will not be the same as the globalist nations who can legislate ethnic and cultural suicide.

    Thank you for your feedback. You make many valid points, and I am not trying to deny ``Jewish power,'' far from it. But I think you are greatly underestimating the power of the Vatican, and I actually believe, and I think I can prove, that the Vatican's power globally has been increasing since the end of World War 2 and then the fall of Communism. Just look at the incredible increases in the RCC's total (mostly lower IQ) membership:

    Catholicism’s incredible growth story

    Critics keep announcing the Church's imminent demise. If only they realised that numbers have doubled since 1970 – and are still rising


    It is strange then to realise that this Church – which is already, by far, the largest religious institution on the planet – is in fact enjoying global growth on an unprecedented scale. In 1950, the world’s Catholic population was 437 million, a figure that grew to 650 million by 1970, and to around 1.2 billion today. Put another way, Catholic numbers have doubled since 1970, and that change has occurred during all the recent controversies and crises within the Church, all the debates following Vatican II and all the claims about the rise of secularism.
    [...]
    Look at the number of parishes in historically Catholic Europe – in Ireland or France, say – which are now graced by priests from Nigeria or Vietnam.

    This reality was brought home to me when I visited Denmark, which is historically one of the continent’s least Catholic nations. But go to a small city like Aarhus and watch the floods of people surrounding the small Catholic church, where Masses are offered in languages as diverse as Vietnamese, English, Chaldean and Tagalog (the last being the main tongue of the Philippines). The global Church comes home; or perhaps we should say, the empires strike back.

    When we consider those African statistics alone, any suggestion of the Catholic Church “dying” or even stagnating is so wildly inaccurate as to be comical.

    Islam is a Christian hersey. And it is degenerate because it believes in "universal brotherhood."

    Do you accept black/Asians as equals?

    I accept people 100+ iq with universal values that promote social stability as equals. As an aztec I would not accept Cortez.
    As a hindu I would oppose Jihadis. As a syrian I would resist Richard the Lionhearted. As an Iroquoi I would fight La Salle. Etc. Invading barbarians have no civil rights, only the right to fight over land.

    I never had a problem with any black or brown american except an aggressive marauder. Period.

  88. Get it straight. Without going back to phoenicians and egyptians, Rome is the first great empire, 800 years before the Roman Catholic Church which is basically Rome in religious drag. The jews only entered the picture via the greeks.

    To blame the jews for everything is like going after only the godfather’s hitmen who can be tagged as jewish. Really economic hitmen are bagmen. The templars and venetian bankers were not jews. The bad reputation of bank jews came from the court jews before the protestant reformation. Rothschilds etc. do not own or control half the world’s wealth. The bolshevik jews did not rule the soviet union as believed by some.
    Israel is a creature of the anglo american empire. If the israelis can blackmail the cia or mi6 so can us and uk blackmail israel. Bank jews are too easily identifiable to be the real power. Rome and London and now Brussels is inclusive of both jews and nazis who belong to the globalist cartel. We are wasting time watching for jews we know instead of the hidden hand of the heirarchy of the .01% of the kingmakers we know not.

    Nice info. You definitely have some valid points. I still don't think the Catholic Church is at the center of it all, though. Some of your articles sound like they trail off from the initial topic, and don't explain WHY the Catholic Church would want an open borders policy.

    In fact, the Catholic Church being the leader of the NWO line is probably a major distraction. Look at the UN. The UN is literally structured as a global one-world government, which all but a few countries are a part of (the Vatican NOT being part of it), even countries that are considered bitterly hostile to each other. With almost every country in the world part of the UN, that means a lot more money and power being poured into it from nations part of it than that of the Catholic Church. And that is the ultimate plan: a one-world totalitarian government that suppresses national sovereignty, religion, ethnic distinctions, and tradition (all to prevent opposition) to name a few. Interestingly, hardly anyone seems to pay attention to the UN as it lurks in the background.

    Besides, the Catholic Church over the past hundreds of years has only declined in political power and cultural influence around the world (especially in the West), and still is today. It also has repeatedly throughout much of its history condemned freemasonry. Catholic Prime Minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi even struck a deal with Gaddafi to prevent mass illegal immigration. When the two of them were ousted from power by Obama, Cameron, and Sarkozy, that was when the migrant crisis that we see today began. This is not to mention that the "Jesuit" idea of "liberation theology" was actually a KGB invention:

    http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/05/02/highest-ranking-cold-war-defector-the-kgb-invented-liberation-theology/

    http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/former-soviet-spy-we-created-liberation-theology-83634/

    As for the Jewish involvement, leading communists Marx, Engels, Lenin, and Trotsky were all Jewish, as are many of the elite leaders of many Western governments. Additionally, the world really seems to revolve more around Israel than the Vatican. Most Israelis are secular and are false Jews that are Ashkenazi. While not all Jews are NWO, many NWO agents are Jews.

    This is not to deny NWO involvement by people in the Catholic Church, as well as some of the Popes (and most certainly Pope Francis). Hardly any political elite member of any country is not in the NWO. Churches also are often infiltrated with many wolves in sheep's clothing who are ultimately NWO agents, like with the KGB liberation theology scenario. Nonetheless, the Catholic Church is not the core of the NWO. As Catholic power has decreased, Jewish banking power has increased, and continues to do so.

    The Catholic Church is a private organization. Its influence will not be the same as the globalist nations who can legislate ethnic and cultural suicide.

    Thank you for your feedback. You make many valid points, and I am not trying to deny “Jewish power,” far from it. But I think you are greatly underestimating the power of the Vatican, and I actually believe, and I think I can prove, that the Vatican’s power globally has been increasing since the end of World War 2 and then the fall of Communism. Just look at the incredible increases in the RCC’s total (mostly lower IQ) membership:

    Catholicism’s incredible growth story

    Critics keep announcing the Church’s imminent demise. If only they realised that numbers have doubled since 1970 – and are still rising

    It is strange then to realise that this Church – which is already, by far, the largest religious institution on the planet – is in fact enjoying global growth on an unprecedented scale. In 1950, the world’s Catholic population was 437 million, a figure that grew to 650 million by 1970, and to around 1.2 billion today. Put another way, Catholic numbers have doubled since 1970, and that change has occurred during all the recent controversies and crises within the Church, all the debates following Vatican II and all the claims about the rise of secularism.
    [...]
    Look at the number of parishes in historically Catholic Europe – in Ireland or France, say – which are now graced by priests from Nigeria or Vietnam.

    This reality was brought home to me when I visited Denmark, which is historically one of the continent’s least Catholic nations. But go to a small city like Aarhus and watch the floods of people surrounding the small Catholic church, where Masses are offered in languages as diverse as Vietnamese, English, Chaldean and Tagalog (the last being the main tongue of the Philippines). The global Church comes home; or perhaps we should say, the empires strike back.

    When we consider those African statistics alone, any suggestion of the Catholic Church “dying” or even stagnating is so wildly inaccurate as to be comical.

    As you probably know, the United Nations (U.N.) are headquartered in New York City:

    Also in regards to the U.N., this older post of mine might interest you:

    Things looked better at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York. There, at a Beth Israel Hospital anniversary, guests learned that, years earlier, Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver had told Cardinal Francis Spellman of Israel’s efforts to get a seat in the United Nations. To help, Spellman said he would call on South American governments and share with them his fond wish that Israel be admitted.

    Sorry Secularists, But Yes, The UN Can Be Led By A ‘Fervent Catholic’

    “The Vatican may be the smallest state in the world but is very active at the United Nations,” Wood writes. “At the Human Rights Council, it is the only country I have seen that always has two representatives in the chamber listening to every syllable as though their lives depend on it, handing over the headphones to each other like relay runners do the baton.” [...]

    The other political supra-national entity besides the U.N., is the European Union (E.U.):

    The U.S. is not fascist, yet, since it is not majority Catholic, yet. But that could change in the future, if the Church gets its way in regards to birth control and more immigration from Catholic regions/countries into the U.S., e.g. Central and South America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Philippines, Haiti, etc.
    [...]
    The E.U. is majority Catholic after BREXIT, so the chances, that it could turn truly fascist/authoritarian, now are higher than they were before, in my opinion:

    According to new polls about religiosity in the European Union in 2012 by Eurobarometer, Christianity is the largest religion in the European Union, accounting for 72% of the EU population.[209] Catholics are the largest Christian group, accounting for 48% of the EU population, while Protestants make up 12%, Eastern Orthodox make up 8% and other Christians make up 4%.

    The Roman Catholic Church, as a self-consciously universalist entity, seems a more likely entity to blame. Sure enough, the rise of proto-Multicultacracy in the USA clearly correlates with the waves of Jews and Roman-Catholics through Ellis-Island.

  90. The problem is not the Catholic Church but Christianity itself. Christianity like other Abrahamic religion is multi racial to it’s core.
