As If To Add An Exclamation Point
by Thomas A. Droleskey
Members of the organized crime families of the false opposites of the naturalist "left" and the naturalist ":right" do me the great service sometimes of adding an exclamation point to the commentaries that I post on this site.
United States Senator Ronald Harold Johnson (R-Wisconsin) did this for me yesterday. This is not something that pleases me, mind you. However, Senator Johnson, who uses the diminutive of his first name, Ron, one of the enduring negative legacies of the thirty-ninth President of the United States of America, James Earl "Jimmy" Carter, Jr., amplified a point that I made last two days ago in Contrast The Outrage, part two, when he said yesterday, Sunday, October 28, 2012, the Feast of Christ the King and the Commemoration of the Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost, that the surgical execution fo the the innocent preborn is not "an issue here in Wisconsin:"
WALLACE: Senator Johnson, Mitt Romney disavowed
Richard Mourdock's comments and, Richard Mourdock has tried to walk them
back. But it does bring up the bigger question. Why should a woman who
believes of freedom of choice when it comes to abortion, why should she
vote for Mitt Romney, who said he'd like to see Roe vs. Wade overturned
and who favors cutting off all federal funding for Planned Parenthood?
Chris, first of all, I have heard one person talk about the abortion
issue during the entire campaign. What people in Wisconsin, what is
moving the needle here is they recognize Mitt Romney is an individual,
who when faced with the legislature that's controlled 85 percent by
Democrats who is actually able to work with the Democrats, you take a
look at his record versus President Obama, who has been totally unable
to work with divided government in Washington --
WALLACE: Sir, if I may, on the question of abortion, though --
JOHNSON: It's just --
WALLACE: Go ahead.
mean, Chris, it's not even an issue. It's not an issue here in
Wisconsin. It doesn't even -- it doesn't even move the radar at all.
people are concerned about, like I said -- yesterday, it was
unbelievable how many people came up to me, demanding answers on
Benghazi. I had a father, a Marine, a young Marine, saying, listen I
want to know who the commander-in-chief is and what orders he gave and
what didn't he give. And that's really the question on the table I think
for the last 10 days, is what happened in Benghazi and, abortion
doesn't even show up. (Key senators on presidential swing state showdown, Fox News Sunday, Sunday, October 28, 2012, Feast of Christ the King and the Commemoration of the Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost.)
"I mean, Chris, it's not even an issue. It's not an issue here in Wisconsin. It doesn't even--it doesn't even move the radar at all."
Here is a memorandum to you, Senator Ronald Harold Johnson: God cares about the chemical and surgical slaughter of the innocent preborn in their mothers' wombs daily under cover of the civil law. God cares, that is, the true God of Divine Revelation, not the concept of Him that was invented by the man, Father Martin Luther, O.S.A., who founded the false religion to which you belong. God cares. And if God cares, Senator Ronald Harold Johnson, you had better care, especially if you reckon with these words of Pope Pius XI:
Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the
duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend
the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose
lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom
we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And
if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their
laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of
others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent
blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 30, 1930.)
To paraphrase the old Fram oil filter television advertisement from the 1970 ("You can pay me now, or you can pay me later"), those who treat the daily slaughter of the preborn with such indifference as Ronald Harold Johnson can pay God now by repenting of their indifference and of their support for such killing in the so-called "hard cases," or they can pay Him later after failing to learn that "God is their Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven." And shame, complete and total shame, on supposedly "pro-life" Americans who think that this is what they will have to accept from such men as Ronald Harold Johnson and Willard Mitt Romney because Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., are so terrible.
Obama/Soetoro and Biden are at least honest and up front in their unapologetic support for the killing of the innocent preborn without any restriction whatsoever. Men such as Ronald Harold Johnson and Willard Mitt Romney traffic dishonestly in being "pro-life" solely for the purpose of taking advantage of fears of "pro-life" voters about open pro-aborts Obama/Soetoro and Biden and thus wind up being more dangerous to the common temporal good because they have caused earnest, hard-working, credulous Americans to believe that that are going to do "something" to "reverse Roe v. Wade" when their one and only intention is to get elected and to fix the "money, the money, and the money."
This is only the result of everything I documented so painstakingly five days ago in Without Any Rational Foundation. If you don't want to see it, that's up to you. Senator Ronald "Harold" Johnson has just added an exclamation point to the farce of what is our Judeo-Masonic system of naturalism that was denounced with such great Catholic eloquence by Louis Edouard "Cardinal" Pie, who was the Bishop of Poitiers, France from from May 23, 1849, to the time of his death on May 18, 1880:
Accordingly, the Bishop of Poitiers had always
fought against THE SEPARATION OF Church and State. Moreover, he opposed
all separations, that of reason and faith, of nature and grace, of
natural religion and revealed religion, the separation of the
philosopher and the Christian, of private man and public man. He saw in
all these [separations] a resurgence of Manichean dualism and he had
fought all these with, the supreme argument, the law formed by Christ.
Therefore, it is in all truth, writing to [Minister of the Interior] the
Count of Presigny, that he could render this testimony:
'We have nothing in common with the theorists of
disunion and opposition of two orders, temporal and spiritual, natural
and supernatural. We struggle, on the contrary, with all our strength
against these doctrines of separation which is leading to the denial of
religion itself and of revealed religion.'"
Fr. de St. Just returns at this point and
introduces us to what is perhaps Msgr. Pie's strongest language, with
regard to this entire subject:
"To this doctrine of the Church, which Msgr. Pie
brought to the mind of the rulers of nations, the liberals would oppose
acts favoring separation.
"Certain countries, Belgium and America,
for example, haven't they proclaimed the separation of Church and State,
and doesn't the Church enjoy a more complete liberty under such a
Cardinal Pie responded firmly to this question:
'THE AMERICAN AND BELGIUM SYSTEM, this system of philosophical-political indifference, shall eternally be a bastard system" (pp. 122-124 in Fr. de St. Just's book) (Selected Writings of Selected Writings of Cardinal Pie of Poitiers, Catholic Action Resource Center, Orlando, Florida, October, 2007, pp. 21-23.)
Saint Jerome, who used some pretty strong language to denounce heresy and error (see Putting Love of God Above All Else) in his own day, could not have put it better himself.
In the even that anyone would believe that this was simply Cardinal Pie's "private view" that did not have any papal approbation, consider the following testimony provided by Father De St. Just about the esteem in which Pope Pius X held Cardinal Pie over two decades after the latter's death:
"[St.] Pius X, giving audience in the French seminary, declared to have 'often read and re-read' the works of Cardinal Pie . . . . This veneration of [St.] Pius X for the great Bishop of Poitiers is demonstrated for us by this account found in Canon [Paul] Vigue's 'Select Pages of Cardinal Pie': "A priest from Poitiers has recalled that one day he had the honor of having been introduced into the cabinet of the Supreme Pontiff, [St.] Pius X, in the company of a religious who as also from Poitiers. 'Oh! the diocese of Poitiers," the Holy Father exclaimed, raising his hands, when he heard the name Poitiers mentioned. "I have almost the entire works of your Cardinal,' the saintly Pontiff continued, 'and, for years, there has hardly been a day that I have not read some of its pages.' (Selected Writings of Selected Writings of Cardinal Pie of Poitiers, Catholic Action Resource Center, Orlando, Florida, October, 2007, testimonial pages.)
Cardinal Pie was unafraid to speak truth to power. Consider what he said to Louis Bonaparte he was presenting himself as Emperor Napoleon III:
The time has not come for Jesus Christ to reign? Well, then the time
has not come for governments to last. (Cardinal Pie, meeting with
Emperor Napoleon III)
Attention, attention, all you shoppers in the Americanism aisle in your neighborhood Wal-Mart. You better read that last quotation a few times to take the blinders about the "lesser of two evils" insanity that many of you are permitting to take away your Catholic senses
Cardinal Pie was speaking not only to the pretentious nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte.
Cardinal Pie was speaking not only to the likes of the members of the organized crime families of the naturalist "left" and the naturalist "right" such as those in the headlines these days but who are destined to become the forgettable men of history 'ere long.
Cardinal Pie was speaking also the likes of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI as much as to the pretentious Louis Napoleon.
Cardinal Pie added his own and most emphatic exclamation point to the the work of our true popes who taught the immutable truth that Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order:
The main error, the capital crime of this century is the pretension
of withdrawing public society from the government and the law of God...
The principle laid at the basis of the whole modern social structure is
atheism of the law and of the institutions. Let it be disguised under
the names of abstention, neutrality, incompetence or even equal
protection, let us even go to the length of denying it by some
legislative dispositions for details or by accidental and secondary
acts: the principle of the emancipation of the human society from the
religious order remains at the bottom of things; it is the essence of
what is called the new era. (Cardinal Pie, Pastoral Works, vol. VII, pp. 3, 100)
The forgettable men of history such as Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and Willard Mitt Romney and Ronald Harold Johnson are but the products of a "bastard" system that makes the triumph of practical atheism and of utilitarianism the norm of public discourse and action.
This itself is a point amplified by none other than the very pontiff, Pope Leo XIII, who had elevated Cardinal Pie to the College of Cardinals a year before his death:
To hold, therefore, that there is no difference in matters of religion
between forms that are unlike each other, and even contrary to each
other, most clearly leads in the end to the rejection of all religion in
both theory and practice. And this is the same thing as atheism, however it may differ from it in name. Men who really believe in the existence of God must, in order to be consistent with themselves and to avoid absurd
conclusions, understand that differing modes of divine worship involving
dissimilarity and conflict even on most important points cannot all be
equally probable, equally good, and equally acceptable to God. (Pope Leo XIII, Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885. See also Practical Atheism as the Lowest Common Denominator and Not A Mention of Christ the King.)
With the likes of the forgettable men of history running around to whip up hysteria in the final days of the circus of midget naturalists this year, is there any wonder that what is being called a "frankenstorm" is about to hit the East Coast with what appears to be a strange combination of the classic winds and rain produced by a Nor'easter (I remember vividly the ones from November of 1968, August 28, 1971, and the one that lasted from October 28, 1991, to November 4, 1991) as it meets up with a cold front pushing east from the Midwest?
God will not be mocked as men sin wantonly.
God will not be mocked as men in public life dismiss the pertinence of one of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, willful murder, as "not an issue here" in his state.
This amplifies what I wrote two days ago in Contrast The Outrage, part two:
What is perhaps most disconcerting, ladies and gentlemen of the peanut gallery, is that there is a great deal of understandable outrage about the Benghazi bet
When are Catholics, no matter where they fall on the vast expanse of the ecclesiastical divide, going to recognize and accept the truth written over five hundred years ago now and cited by Pope Pius XI in Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929?
The more closely the temporal power of a nation aligns itself with the
spiritual, and the more it fosters and promotes the latter, by so much
the more it contributes to the conservation of the commonwealth. For it
is the aim of the ecclesiastical authority by the use of spiritual
means, to form good Christians in accordance with its own particular end
and object; and in doing this it helps at the same time to form good
citizens, and prepares them to meet their obligations as members of a
civil society. This follows of necessity because in the City of God, the
Holy Roman Catholic Church, a good citizen and an upright man are
absolutely one and the same thing. How grave therefore is the error of
those who separate things so closely united, and who think that they can
produce good citizens by ways and methods other than those which make
for the formation of good Christians. For, let human prudence
say what it likes and reason as it pleases, it is impossible to produce
true temporal peace and tranquillity by things repugnant or opposed to
the peace and happiness of eternity. (Silvio Cardinal Antoniano, quoted by Pope Pius XI in Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929.)
Yes, sad to say, Senator Ronald Harold Johnson, who is said to be "pro-life" even though he supports the surgical slaughter of the preborn has amplified the points made above.
Who is proximately Root causes. Keep focused on root causes. It is not a bad to "easy" solutions. However, there are none for us at the present time.
Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order, and it is because the lords of conciliarism have abandoned the Catholic Faith and exalted "Man" and his "ability" to "better" the world that we find ourselves deep in an abyss caused by the concentration of almost all philosophical errors and theological heresies that have been known in salvation history from which the only escape is through Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart as we continue to pray as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
