Figlio di Sfachim
Thomas A. Droleskey
The late Robert Ciro Gigante, whose radio pseudonym was "Bob Grant," was an anti-clerical, pro-abortion, quasi-libertarian, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Israeli Lobby radio talk show host from 1964, starting in California, until July 28, 2013, five months, three days before he died at the age of eighty-four on Tuesday, December 31, 2013, the Feast of Pope Saint Sylvester I.
The late "Bob Grant" did, however, have a number of phrases that New Yorkers who listened to him picked up and made part of their own vocabulary ("Get off my phone, you jerk!", " Let's be heard!", "Straight ahead," "He folded like a cheap camera," "[Insert name of politician] is a fake, phony, fraud." Gigante, though, would use his own Freemasonic father's native Italian language now and again when it suited him to do so, including his frequent references to the man who was Governor of the State of New York from January 1, 1983, to December 31, 1994, Mario Matthew Cuomo, as "the Sfachim," "the low life:"
"Mario azende me tuzeprovenos sfachim." Translation: "Mario listen to me you are a low life."
Well, Figlio di Sfachim (Son of the Low Life), has proven himself to be even more of a thug than his thuggish father, the Sfachim himself, a man who was noted to telephone priests and presbyters in the conciliar structures back in the 1980s if he, Mario Matthew Cuomo, heard from a supporter of his that he had been criticized from the pulpit for his support of the "legal right" of women to kill their preborn children. One priest, the pastor of Holy Family Church in Hicksville, New York, hung up the phone on Cuomo when the latter telephoned to register his protest with the pastor's criticism.
Cuomo was also very miffed when the then "Archbishop" John Joseph O'Connor refused to acknowledge Cuomo's presence from the pulpit at the Cathedral of Saint Patrick in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, New York, during O'Connor's "installation" service on Monday, March 19, 1984, the Feast of Saint Joseph, even though the non-prelate acknowledged the presence of City of New York Mayor Edward Irving Koch, City of Scranton, Pennsylvania Mayor James Barrett McNulty, United States Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-New York) and United States Ambassador to the Holy See, William Wilson.
Cuomo was furious.
I know. I was there, dressed in a cassock and surplice as a seminarian from Holy Apostles Seminary (how a group of us from Holy Apostles managed to get into the service is a story in and of itself as we had no tickets and most of the group had no official sponsorship to study for a particular diocese or religious community), watching as the red-faced Cuomo stormed passed me on the right transept of the Cathedral of Saint Patrick after the end of the joke-fest that was O'Connor's Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo "installation" service. (O'Connor was telling so many jokes at various points during the service that the late Father Vincent Miceli told me, "He's a comedian. He thinks he's Johnny Carson.") Cuomo never forgot that snub. Never.
Well, Figlio di Sfachim, Son of the Low Life, current State of New York Governor Andrew Mark Cuomo, is making his thuggish father seem like the unsure, high-strung, insecure Deputy Sheriff Bernard "Barney" Fife from The Andy Griffith Show, which aired on the Columbia Broadcasting System from October 3, 1960, to April 1, 1968 (the end of original episodes, and has been in syndication for the past forty-six years. Gubernatore Cuomo, Figilio di Sfachim, has just told all "right-to-life," "anti-gay" and supporters of the Second Amendment to get out of the State of New York as they are not "wanted" there, my own native state:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the current “schism” in the state Republican
party is a smaller version of the split causing so much damage in
Washington, D.C., and that “conservative Republicans … have no place in
the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
In conversation with Susan Arbetter on “The Capitol Pressroom” Friday morning, Cuomo said:
You have a schism within the Republican Party. … They’re
searching to define their soul, that’s what’s going on. Is the
Republican party in this state a moderate party or is it an extreme
conservative party? That’s what they’re trying to figure out. It’s a
mirror of what’s going on in Washington. The gridlock in Washington is
less about Democrats and Republicans. It’s more about extreme
Republicans versus moderate Republicans.
… You’re seeing that play out in New York. … The Republican Party
candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by
moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the
Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these
extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon,
anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and
they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of
New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.
If they’re moderate Republicans like in the Senate right now, who
control the Senate — moderate Republicans have a place in their state.
George Pataki was governor of this state as a moderate Republican; but
not what you’re hearing from them on the far right.”
The governor’s suggestion that, for example, those who hold
anti-abortion views have no place in the state prompted Dennis Poust,
spokesman for the state Catholic Conference, to observe on Twitter, “My
governor thinks there’s no place in NY for people like me. Can I get a
state grant to relocate?” (And where to — New Hampshire, maybe?) (Capitol Confidential: Cuomo: ‘Extreme conservatives … have no place in the state of New York’).
Although Figlio di Sfachim tried to walk back his comments in an open letter to the New York Post on Sunday, January 19, 2014, the Second Sunday after the Epiphany and the Commemoration of Saints Marius and his Companions and the Commemoration of Saint Canute, King of Denmark, the quotation above came from the Albany Times-Union newspaper website, not from the New York Post, and represented a direct quotation of his remarks. Although Andrew Mark Cuomo was discussing the plight of the Republican Party in the State of New York and in Washington, District of Columbia, the remarks he made on Friday, January 17, 2014, the Feast of Saint Antony of the Desert, clearly state his desire for all pro-life New Yorkers to leave the state. Try as he might, there is no way for Figlio di Sfachim to walk those comments back. (A separate article will be written concerning Figlio di Sfachim's desire to appeal to "moderate" Republicans, such as my former adversary for the United States Senatorial nomination of the Right to Life Party of the State of New York, former United States Senator Alfonse M. D'Amato, who has endorsed Cuomo the Lesser's bid for re-election. The temptation is strong to point out in great detail that all of my comments about D'Amato sixteen years ago were entirely correct; however, I will save that for the separate commentary).
Yes, we have returned to the days of the caesars and their minions who wanted our spiritual ancestors to bow down and scrape before them as demigods whose every word must be obeyed without question. Figlio di Sfachim has spoken, and that is supposed to be that.
We can see that forty-one years of the conciliar officials having appeased pro-abortion Catholics in public life by engaging them in "dialogue" and even by extolling them all too frequently because they support statist policies that are said to assist the "poor" have produced men such as Figlio di Sfachim, men who can support the daily slaughter of the preborn and support "marriage" between persons of the same gender while still enjoying bear hugs from conciliar "bishops" such as Timothy Michael Dolan and even the "pope" himself, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is about to give a bear hug of his own to the pro-abortion, pro-perversity President of the French Republic, Francois Hollande, who is taking a month to "figure out" which one of his two--that's right, two--mistresses will be the "First Lady of France" when he visits the White House on a state visit to President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro (French prez Hollande will pick concubine in time for Obama visit.)
As I noted a few years ago now about the disgraced former United States Representative Anthony Wiener (D-New York), Caligula's Got Nothing On This Crowd. Modernity is burning, and the lords of conciliarism continue to add fuel to the fire, continuing to enable supports of willful murder and the sin of Sodom because they are allegedly "for the poor."
It has been forty years now since a thirty-two year-old attorney from Queens, New York, received the designation at the New York State Democratic Party Convention for the office of lieutenant governor.
The attorney's name was Mario Matthew Cuomo, whose eldest son, Andrew Mark Cuomo, had just turned seventeen years of age. The elder Cuomo, whose legal offices were located on Court Street in Brooklyn, New York, had been noted for the stirring lectures that he gave against the decriminalization of abortion whenever he was called upon by officials the Diocese of Brooklyn to speak to various parish organizations and other groups as its official representative. The Democratic Party designee for the office of lieutenant governor, however, faced a challenge from New York State Assemblyman Antonio Olivieri and State Senator Mary Anne Krupsak, a pro-abortion Catholic who wound up winning the primary handily on September 10, 1974. Believe it or not, Mario Matthew Cuomo said in a debate held with his challengers in Albany, New York, on August
25, 1974, that he would have voted against the
1970 bill that decriminalized surgical baby-killing in the first
trimester of life in the State of New York if he had been a member of
the New York State Legislature at that time.
Defeated in his bid to be the Democrat Party
lieutenant governor nominee in 1974, Cuomo learned to parrot the line
that had been mastered by his political mentor, then United States
Representative Hugh Leo Carey, who was elected as Governor of the State
of New York on Tuesday, November 5, 1974, and served two terms, that he was "personally
opposed to abortion, but would never impose" his "morality upon others."
Cuomo, who was appointed by Carey to be the Secretary of State of the State
of New York in January of 1975, used this line repeatedly when he ran
unsuccessfully for the Democrat Party nomination for the Mayoralty of
the City of New York in 1977 and when he ran in the general election
that year as the nominee of the Liberal Party of the State of New York
against the pro-abortion Democrat nominee, then United States
Representative Edward Irving Koch, and the Republican Party nominee, the
pro-abortion New York State Senator Roy Goodman, and the Conservative
Party nominee, radio talk show host Barry Farber. Andrew Mark Cuomo, then twenty years of age and a student at Fordham University in the Borough of the Bronx, was long suspected by the Koch campaign as having been the one responsible for the hiring of vans with loudspeakers that blared "Vote for Cuomo, Not for the Homo" message as they drove through the streets of the Borough of Queens, although Figlio di Sfachim has always denied any involvement in this effort.
Koch, for his part, never forgave the Cuomos, whether the Sfachim himself or Figlio di Sfachim, something that an article written shortly after Koch's death last year made clear:
During a nasty 1977 Democratic mayoral primary campaign between Koch
and Mario Cuomo, political signs appeared in Queens that read: “Vote for
Cuomo, Not the Homo.”
Following Koch’s death in Manhattan early Friday, the New York Times
released a 2007 interview during which Koch said he never truly forgave
Cuomo, or his son Andrew, now New York’s governor, for the dirty
“I always held it against him,” Koch said in the videotaped sitdown. “I also held it against his son, Andy Cuomo. (Koch and the Cuomos. It should be noted, however, that Koch also said on other occasions to other reporters that he believed the Cuomos' denials. The games that naturalists play.)
Defeated by Koch in the general election for Mayor
of the City of New York in 1977, Mario Matthew Cuomo won the Democrat Party nomination
for lieutenant governor in 1978 (then Lieutenant Governor Krupsak, also
a pro-abortion Catholic, challenged her pro-abortion Catholic Governor,
Hugh Carey, unsuccessfully in a primary that year), and was Carey's
heir apparent in 1982 when the latter chose not to seek a third term.
Cuomo termed the tables on his old adversary Koch, defeating him in hard
fought primary in 1982 for the Democrat Party's gubernatorial
nomination, going on to defeat Rite Aid magnate Lew Lehrman, the nominee
of the Republican and Conservative parties, and the Right to Life Party
nominee, Robert Bohnar. Cuomo loudly defended "abortion rights" during
that 1982 general election campaign, and was known to telephone priests
in various conciliar parishes if he got wind of any criticism uttered
about him from pulpits during sermons.
Cuomo's support for "abortion rights" came to the
national forefront in 1984 after the conciliar "bishop" of Scranton,
John Joseph O'Connor, was appointed to be the conciliar "archbishop" of
New York. Even before his "installation" at Saint Patrick's Cathedral on
Monday, March 19, 1984, O'Connor told longtime WNBC-TV newsman Gabe
Pressman that he, O'Connor, "was sick and tired" of politicians who say
that they are "personally opposed" to abortion while supporting a
nonexistent "right" of a woman to choose to kill her preborn baby.
Cuomo sought to provide "intellectual muscle" to
the "I'm personally opposed to abortion" position in the address that he
gave at the behest of Hartford's Mark of Apostasy,
Father Richard P. McBrien, then the Chairman of the Department of
Theology at the University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana, on
Thursday, September 13, 1984:
The Catholic public official lives the political truth most Catholics through most of American history have accepted and insisted on: the truth that to assure our freedom we must allow others the same freedom, even if occasionally it produces conduct by them which we would hold to be sinful.
I protect my right to be a Catholic by preserving your right to believe as a Jew, a Protestant, or nonbeliever, or as anything else you choose.
We know that the price of seeking to force our beliefs on others is that they might someday force theirs on us.
This freedom is the fundamental strength of our unique experience in government. In the complex interplay of forces and considerations that go into the making of our laws and policies, its preservation must be a persuasive and dominant concern. . . .
As Catholics, my wife and I were enjoined never to use abortion to destroy the life we created. We thought church doctrine was clear on this. Life or fetal life in the womb should be protected, even if five of nine justices of the Supreme Court and my neighbor disagree with me. A fetus is different from an appendix or a set of tonsils. At the very least, even if the argument is made by some scientists or some theologians that in the early stages of fetal development we can’t discern human life, the full potential of human life is indisputably there. That—to my less subtle mind—by itself should demand respect, caution, indeed . . . reverence.
But not everyone in our society agrees.
And those who don’t—those who endorse legalized abortions—aren’t a ruthless, callous alliance of anti-Christians determined to overthrow our moral standards. In many cases, the proponents of legal abortion are the very people who have worked with Catholics to realize the goals of social justice set out in papal encyclicals: the American Lutheran Church, the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the Presbyterian Church in the United States, B’nai B’rith Women, the Women of the Episcopal Church. There are just a few of the religious organizations that don’t share the church’s position on abortion.
Certainly, we should not be forced to mold Catholic morality to conform to disagreement by non-Catholics, however sincere or severe their disagreement. Our bishops should be teachers, no pollsters. They should not change what we Catholics believe in order to ease our consciences or please our friends or protect the church from criticism.
But if the breadth, intensity, and sincerity of opposition to church teaching shouldn’t be allowed to shape our Catholic morality, it can’t help but determine our ability—our realistic, political ability—to translate our Catholic morality into civil law, a law not for the believers who don’t need it but for the believers who reject it.
And it is here, in our attempt to find a political answer to abortion—an answer beyond our private observance of Catholic morality— that we encounter controversy within and without the church over how and in what degree to press the case that our morality should be everybody else’s, and to what effect.
I repeat, there is no church teaching that mandates the best political course for making our belief everyone’s rule, for spreading this part of our Catholicism. There is neither an encyclical nor a catechism that spells out a political strategy for achieving legislative goals.
And so the Catholic trying to make moral and prudent judgments in the political realm must discern which, if any, of the actions one could take would be best. American Rhetoric: Mario Cuomo --"Religious Belief and Public Morality
Apart from the disregard of the facts of biology that young attorney Mario Matthew Cuomo used to provide to groups before which he spoke as a representative of the Diocese of Brooklyn in the 1960s, Governor Mario Matthew Cuomo--Mario Pilate/Pontius Cuomo, an admirer of the late Father Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J., had the audacity to refer to "our" morality when referring to the immutable and eternally binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law that proscribe the direct, intentional killing of any innocent human being. God's laws apply to everyone without regard to whether anyone accepts them. Civil law must be conformed to the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law in all that pertains to the good of souls, and Catholics have the positive moral obligation to work in behalf of such a conformity. Catholics are not permitted to privately hold one thing while publicly speaking and acting in a contradictory manner.
Pope Leo XIII made this abundantly clear in Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885:
Hence, lest concord be broken by rash charges, let this be understood by all, that the integrity of Catholic faith cannot be reconciled with opinions verging on naturalism or rationalism, the essence of which is utterly to do away with Christian institutions and to install in society the supremacy of man to the exclusion of God. Further, it is unlawful to follow one line of conduct in private life and another in public, respecting privately the authority of the Church, but publicly rejecting it; for this would amount to joining together good and evil, and to putting man in conflict with himself; whereas he ought always to be consistent, and never in the least point nor in any condition of life to swerve from Christian virtue. (Pope Pius XI, Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885.)
End of argument.
Along with other Catholic pro-aborts in public life, Cuomo supported the legal "right" of mothers to support the execution of their babies under cover of law, attempting to cover himself in a mantra of not seeking to "impose" "his" morality upon others, while doing precisely that when it came to the issue of capital punishment. Cuomo said that it was his moral duty as a Catholic to oppose capital punishment even though a majority of the citizens of the State of New York desired its restoration. What hubris. What incredible arrogance to consign the innocent preborn to cruel, merciless deaths under cover of law while criminals convicted of heinous crimes after the exhausting of the levers of due process of law are considered to be above the ultimate punishment for their crimes.
Cuomo was unbent in his support for abortion by the time that the pro-abortion Baptist, then Arkansas Governor William Jefferson Blythe Clinton, was nominated by the Democrat Party for President of the United States of America in 1992. Cuomo said the following in the principal nominating speech at Madison Square Garden in the City of New York in behalf of Clinton's nomination on July 15, 1992:
America needs Bill Clinton for still another reason. We need a leader who will stop the Republican attempt, through laws and through the courts, to tell us what god to believe in, and how to apply that god's judgment to our schoolrooms, our bedrooms and our bodies. (Nominating Speech by Mario M. Cuomo)
Just as an aside, the then New York Governor said this about then Governor Clinton, in whose presidential administration Figlio di Sfachim served as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development:
He was born and raised with all the personal attributes needed for leadership: God-given intelligence; vitality. And an extraordinary quality of character that allowed him to survive the buffeting and the trauma of a difficult youth. Nominating Speech by Mario M. Cuomo
I know. Stop laughing.
Cuomo's use of hyperbole makes that of the late President Richard Milhous Nixon's seem tame by comparison. Yet Mario Matthew Cuomo remains a "Catholic" in good standing in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, although one conciliar monsignor, who was Cuomo's pastor at Saint John the Evangelist Church around 1997, said that Cuomo did not present himself for what purported to be the distribution of Holy Communion during the Novus Ordo service, indicating, the monsignor said, that "Cardinal" O'Connor might have told him to refrain from doing so. Cuomo has not been "excommunicated" by conciliar authorities. He is unrepentant in his support for baby-killing under cover of law, although he did say to the 1994 Right to Life Party nominee Bob Walsh, "Bob,
I’m pro-life! I have to say I’m pro-choice in order to get elected," prior to one of their televised debates. (Mr. Walsh asserted this in a presentation he gave to a graduate course on political parties that I was teaching at the C. W. Post Campus of Long Island University in the Fall of 1996.)
What is particularly interesting about Mario Cuomo's nominating speech
in behalf of William Jefferson Blythe Clinton on July 15, 1992, is that
it came about five months after Clinton himself verified the
authenticity of the phone conversations that had been taped without his
knowledge by his "friend," Gennifer Flowers, as he apologized to Cuomo
for the following exchange he had with Flowers, which the late Bob Grant had played repeatedly in 1992 in an effort to oppose Slick Willie's election:
The male voice also
describes Mario Cuomo as being a "mean son of [expletive deleted] " and
when Flowers says, "I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't have some
Mafioso connections," the reply is: "Well, he acts like one," followed by a chuckle.
Speaking of the press, the
voice tells Flowers: "If they ever hit you with it, just say no and go
on. There's nothing they can do. I expected them to look into it and
come interview you. But if everybody is on record denying it, no
problem." Richard Nixon couldn't have said it better. (The Progressive Review,
"Whitewater and Clinton Scandal Clips: Part 1: February 1992-March
1994. I am not linking to this article directly as it contains direct
quotes from Bill and Hillary Clinton that are vile and vulgar, unfit for
the eyes of my readers. It's the only place, however, where I could
find a direct quote of the Flowers-Clinton reference to Cuomo and his
Mario Matthew Cuomo was never excommunicated by
the conciliar officials. Neither has Figlio di Sfachim, who was elected on November 2, 2010, to become sixth
consecutive pro-abortion governor of the abortion capital of the United
States of America, the State of New York. Five of those six governors
(Hugh Leo Carey, Mario Matthew Cuomo, George Elmer Pataki, David
Paterson, and and Andrew Mark Cuomo) have been "Catholics" who have to
this day maintained their good standing in the counterfeit church of
conciliarism. The sixth, the disgraced, notorious opportunist named
Elliot Spitzer, was a Talmudist who made headlines for himself as
Attorney General of the State of New York while harassing and
threatening to prosecute crisis pregnancy centers even though he was
only plowing the ground that had been plowed before him two decades
earlier by that reprobate of a human being named Robert Abrams.
The now retired universal public face of apostasy, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, was not so "tolerant" and "patient" when His Excellency Bishop Richard Williamson after the latter made were considered to be "offensive" comments about the nature and the extent of the crimes committed by agents of Adolph Hitler's Third Reich that Ratzinger/Benedict required a "rethinking" of the relationship of what he thinks is the Catholic Church with the "faith of Israel." Ratzinger/Benedict even went so far as to have his minions exercise their influence with the government of Federal
Republic of Germany to reinstate Bishop Williamson's conviction for a "hate crime" after it had been overturned. One cannot offend the Talmudists. One cannot
dissent from apostate, blasphemous agenda of the conciliar
One can, however, support sins that cry out
to Heaven for vengeance and remain in perfectly good standing with the
conciliar officials, who pat themselves on the back for being so
"patient" with them, explaining to the Catholics in the pews who are
stupid enough to contribute their money in support of
doctrinally, liturgically and morally corrupt men, many of whom grow
physically fat and lead the most comfortable and luxurious of lives,
doing all this while waxing with great sanctimony about how they believe
that "dialogue" will help to convince men such as the Cuomos to come to
oppose the daily slaughter of the innocent preborn in the name of
"human dignity" and not, it should be noted, because it is opposed to
the binding precepts of the Fifth Commandment.
Two conciliar "bishops," including the man who
is "ordinary" of Mario Matthew Cuomo and Andrew Mark Cuomo, Timothy
Michael "Cardinal" Dolan (see Timmy's In The Well (Of Americanism, That Is), Making Everyone Happy Except God, Unhappy Is The "Happy" "Bishop", Whatever You Want, Ominous Offenders Offending Ominously, Memo To David Axelrod And Other Social Engineers, John Carroll's Caesar, Victims of Compromise, Taking A Figure Of Antichrist At His Worthless Words, Prisoners Of Their Own Apostasy, Timothy Dolan, Meet Timothy Dolan (And Friends), Still Celebrating Half A Century Of Apostasy, Candidate For Man Of The Year?, From John Carroll To James Gibbons To Timothy Dolan, To Help The Children, Fake, Phony, Sanctimonious Fraud, Happy As A Stuffed Clam With Himself, Impossible To Fight Moral Evils With Blasphemy And Error and Still Trying to Make Everyone Happy Except God Himself, Just Another Ordinary Outrage Permitted by a Conciliar "Ordinary"),
have beaten their breasts in recent years to protest that they would
only be making "martyrs" of Catholic pro-abortion, pro-perversity public
officials if they disciplined them in any way, that they
preferred "dialogue" to help them understand the teaching of the
Archbishop Dolan was in Albany to lobby on behalf
of Catholic schools, which face increasing financial strain because of
unfunded government mandates.
In Milwaukee, Archbishop Jerome Listecki said that
he, too, would be averse to the idea of denying the Eucharist to a
prominent abortion advocate, although he did exclude the possibility.
The newly installed archbishop told an audience at the Milwaukee Press
Club that his decision would take into account "the impact of whatever
that person is doing." Before taking disciplinary action, he said, he
would want to "help them come to an understanding of the teaching."
Archbishop Listecki said: "It's very difficult for
me to see how somebody can be pro-choice knowing the teachings of the
church" (Timothy Dolan Will Not Refuse "Communion" to Pro-Abortion Pols.)
Consider, if only for a moment,
the fact that we are now just two days away from the forty-first
anniversary of the Supreme Court decisions in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.
The time for "persuasion" has long since past.
Alas, sanctions in the
counterfeit church of conciliarism are reserved principally, although
not exclusively, for those who dare to reject its multiple apostasies,
most especially upon presbyters who dare to leave the conciliar
structures as they reject the nonexistent "legitimacy" of Joseph
Ratzinger as "Pope" Benedict XVI, and also upon those who dare to utter
any word that offends the sensibilities of the conciliar church's "elder
brothers in the faith." Persuasion? I suppose it's easier to convince
oneself of this empty canard than to run the risk of daily ridicule in
the secular media.
Note also the language used by "Archbishop" Jerome
Listecki. He referred to those who support the slaughter of the preborn
under cover of the civil law as "pro-choice," not "pro-death" or
"pro-abortion." Using the devil's language is not in the service of
truth. Yet it is that many conciliar "bishops" and presbyters use the
language of the pro-death lobby.
"Archbishop" Timothy Dolan is said to be very
"pro-life" even though he goes to fully pro-abortion "reform" Talmudic synagogues. This is, in and of itself, quite a statement as each
Catholic, whether a bishop or a priest or a consecrated religious or a
layman, is supposed to oppose anything that is repugnant to the binding
precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law. One is either a
Catholic or he is not. Period. Timothy Michael Dolan, a conciliar revolutionary, is not a Catholic.
Timothy Dolan's fear of making "martyrs" out of
pro-death Catholics in public life by refusing them what purports to be
Holy Communion is entirely misplaced. He believes that he is a Catholic
bishop (he is neither a bishop or a priest). He believes that Our Lord
comes down on Novus Ordo tables. He has an obligation to defend
the integrity of what believes to be the Most Blessed Sacrament no
matter who is made out to be "martyr" by the secular media or by other
Saint Tarsicius laid down his very life to
protect the Blessed Sacrament that he was carrying on his person.
Shouldn't this inspire man who believes himself to be a Catholic bishop want to
do the same?
That Timothy Dolan believes it is "prudent" to keep giving
what he thinks is Holy Communion to pro-abortion Catholics is just
another sign of the era of apostasy that is upon us, and Dolan's policy is that of the ever "merciful" Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is not, of course, very "merciful" to the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate.
Then again, this is the same Timothy Michael Dolan who welcomed Figlio di Sfachim and his own paramour, Sandra Lee, at the Alfred Emanuel Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner on Thursday, October 18, 2012, the Feast of Saint Luke the Evangelist, as he, Dolan, yukked it up with the pro-abortion Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and the partly pro-abortion/partly pro-life Mormon named Willard Mitt Romney.
Perhaps the greatest offense of the entire offensive evening fifteen months ago was precisely the fact the fact that this pro-abortion, pro-perversity
Governor of the State of New York, who had promoted and
then signed the so-called "gay marriage" law passed by the New York
State Legislature in 2011, was permitted to attend the dinner at all and was placed in an honored
seat next to the "archbishop emeritus" of New York, Edward "Cardinal"
Egan, while he, Figlio di Sfachim, a divorced man without even the fig leaf of a conciliar
decree of nullity, was permitted to bring his concubine, who
sat to his left and was clearly visible in her completely immodest
attire to the right of every speaker shown during the thirty-nine video of the event (see Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner).
Timothy Michael Dolan is still engaging pro-aborts, pro-perversity statists in "dialogues of encounter," something that can be seen by the jolly manner in which he greeted Fidel Castro of New York, Bill de Blasio, a baptized Catholic who fell away from the Faith decades ago now, in his, Dolan's residence on Madison Avenue adjacent to the east end of the Cathedral of Saint Patrick, whose entrance is on Fifth Avenue and extends almost an entire city block between Fiftieth Street and Fifty-first Street in the Borough of Manhattan:
Mayor de Blasio met with Cardinal Dolan Monday -- and the pair vowed to team up to try to bring Pope Francis to New York.
“We have a common passion and a common wish,” de Blasio said after
meeting with Dolan at the cardinal’s residence, their first get-together
since the mayor took office.
“We hope that some day Pope Francis will visit our city, which will be an extraordinary blessing for the people of New York.
Speriamo!” said Dolan, Italian for “We hope!” before the men bantered for a few seconds in the language.
And then Dolan added with a smile, “He stays here, not at Gracie!”
Although the new mayor and the cardinal have some major policy disagreements, de Blasio emphasized their agreement on his signature issue -- bridging the divide between the haves and have nots.
"We share common ground on the fundamental issue of fighting inequality and trying to help those in need, and I think this is going to be a tremendous working relationship," de Blasio said.
On that point, de Blasio also declared the Pope a kindred spirit.
“He’s the most powerful voice on this earth on how we have to address inequality all over the world, and on the dangers of letting inequality grow,” de Blasio said.
Dolan said the topic of personal faith didn’t come up in the meeting, but that he’d be open to shepherding de Blasio back to the church if the chance ever arose.
“If the mayor ever wanted to talk to me about his faith and religion, I’m a pastor first,” Dolan said.
De Blasio was baptized Catholic but does not practice any organized faith.
The cardinal said of de Blasio, “He was extraordinarily gracious in telling me about the deep Catholic roots of his own Italian family and about how he really feels that a lot of Catholic values and a Catholic worldview have pervaded a lot of his thinking. But we didn’t get into the specifics of his faith. If he ever wants to, the door is open.” (Mayor de Blasio and Slap Happy Dolan meet, vow to try to bring Slap Happy Jorge to NYC.)
Yes, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is welcome to visit in the baby-execution capital of the United States of America, the City of New York, as Warren Wilhelm, Jr.,who goes by his mother's maiden name and by the first name of "Bill" (which means that I could be "Dr. Thomas Red Fox," the grandson by adoption of a purported Sioux Indian chieftain; imagine the grant monies I could have raked in with that kind of charade?), knows that Jorge will not be speaking about the chemical and surgical execution of preborn babies if he ever visits the City of New York as "Pope Francis." He's the sort of "Catholic" who is welcome in my native state, not those of us who try to adhere, despite our own sins and failings and bad examples, to the truths of the Catholic Faith and to defend them as Christ the King sends us the graces through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother to do so.
Believe me, I made the Cuomos' "get out of New York" list twenty-eight years ago now when I ran for lieutenant governor on the Right to Life Party line with the late District Attorney of the County of Nassau, New York, Denis E. Dillon. And I am more than happy to oblige Figlio di Sfachim as I have no intention of returning to the State of New York ever again, and anyone who knows me knows how attached I have been to Long Island. No more, though. No more. We have not here a permanent dwelling.
Figlio di Sfachim got elected with the support of a lot of supposedly "pro-life" Catholics in the State of New York four years ago. He will probably be re-elected with the support of a lot of supposedly "pro-life" Catholics in the State of New York this year as the little low life is entirely correct when discussing the fact that careerist Republicans want the "moral issues" to go away entirely. He, Cuomo the Lesser, is happy to see the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist right implode as he knows that voters will always choose a real, honest-to-goodness Democrat pro-abort, pro-perversity statist over a "wanna be" Democrat pro-abort, perversity statist nominated by the Republican Party. After all, why settle for the imitation when you can have the original?
The conciliar revolutionaries are entirely responsible for this state of affairs, and they have no intention whatsoever of doing anything to oppose the militant pro-abort, pro-perversity statist named Andrew Mark Cuomo or Warren Wilhelm, Jr./Bill de Blasio, who is as concerned about "income inequality" as Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who has told Catholics not to be "obsessed" about abortion and "gay marriage" and who has effectively told "restorationists" and "triumphalists" to get out of what he thinks is the Catholic Church.
There is even going to come a time, my friends, when Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro or some caesar or caesarette after him is going to say "right-to-life, "anti-gay" citizens are not welcome anywhere in the United States of America. It will be at that time, my friends, when those who have not as yet come to realize that the counterfeit church of conciliarism is false or that its "popes" have been illegitimate claimants to the Throne of Saint Peter will see that their "pope" will be at one with the caesars in demanding our imprisonment or exile or even death itself.
The martyrdom of the saints we have commemorated in the past few days (Saint Prisca on Saturday, Saints Marius and his Companions yesterday, Saints Fabian and Sebastian today, Saint Agnes tomorrow) may come upon us sooner than we think. We are marked. As the saying goes, "we do not blend."
Do not fret. This could be the path that some of us terrible sinners save our souls! May Our Lady send us the graces we would need at that time to remain firm in the proclamations of Viva Cristo Rey!, Viva La Virgen de Guadalupe!
We must also remain firm in our complete and total rejection of everything to do with conciliarism. We can make no compromises with evil.
Indeed, Saint Vincent Ferrer, O.P., made no compromises with evil six hundred years ago now. None. When cowardly priests in Geneva failed to stopped pagan practices right in their midst, Saint Vincent Ferrer, O.P., stepped in to do so:
Most of the valleys on the Italian descent of the Alps were also inhabited by heretics, especially in the diocese of Turin. St Vincent visited them in order, preaching in each of them the Catholic truth and attacking error with vigorous and irresistible energy. By the mercy of God, they each received the Divine Word with much ardor, piety and respect. The Saint's learning, his fervor and miracles opened the eyes of all. He observed that the chief cause of error and heresy was the total absence of preaching. He gathered from the inhabitants of the country that for thirty years no one has preach to them except Vaudois who came regularly among them twice a year. In the valley of Loferio, he reclaimed the Bishop of that poor erring flock; in that of Angrogne he destroyed the schools in which the ministers of error were educated; at Val-du-Pont he led the Cathari to renounce their abominations; at Val-de-Lanz he converted the descendants of the murderers of Saint Peter Martyr. He discovered in the diocese of Geneva a gross and wide-spread error. It was customary to celebrate every year, on the day following Corpus Christi, a feast in honor of the Orient, and confraternities were established under the name of St. Orient. No preacher dared to declaim against this monstrous error; the religious and the secular clergy were threatened either with death or the withdrawal of offerings and alms. But St. Vincent was above all such servile fears. He spoke freely against this abuse and effectually put a stop to it. He found matters in a still more lamentable state in the diocese of Lausanne, where the peasantry were accustomed to offer an idolatrous worship to the sun. He instructed them in the worship of God and put to flight all such superstitious practices. (Father Andrew Pradel, O.P., St. Vincent Ferrer: Angel of Judgment, published originally in 1863 and republished in 2000 by TAN Books and Publishers, pp. 79-80.)
An interesting footnote to this passage was given us by Father Pradel:
There was a striking resemblance between the St. Orient of the Albigenses and the Grand-Orient of modern Freemasonry. (Father Andrew Pradel, O.P., St. Vincent Ferrer: Angel of Judgment, published originally in 1863 and republished in 2000 by TAN Books and Publishers, p. 193.)
Modernity and Modernism both are constructed from the diabolical formulae of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry. While it is indeed despicable for the likes of Andrew Mark Cuomo and others in the "leftist" camp of naturalism to speak and act as they do, it is more reprehensible that men who are seen by the world to represent the Catholic Church remain silent as they do so.
Gone are the days when our true popes spoke of the evils advanced by minions such as Sfachim and Figlio di Sfachim in direct terms:
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.)
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 31, 1930.)
Saint Francis de Sales gave us a few thoughts to consider in An Introduction to the Devout Life:
At the end, after the time God has allotted for the duration of this world and after many signs and portents at which men will "wither away through fear" and apprehension, fire like a raging torrent will burn and reduce to ashes the whole face of the earth. Nothing that we see here will escape it. (Saint Francis de Sales, An Introduction to the Devout Life, p. 62.)
"Nothing that we see here will escape it." Not even the "glories" of the naturalistic, anti-Incarnational and semi-Pelagian United States of America. We can advance the cause of the Social Reign of Christ the King now by refusing to participate in farce and by refusing to be silent about grave offenses to Him and to the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross, or we can answer to Him as Our King and Judge at the moment of our Particular Judgments for our belief that naturalism can be retarded by naturalism rather than by Catholicism and It alone.
We need to ask Our Lady of the Rosary to have mercy upon us as we try to fulfill her Fatima Message by making reparation for our sins and those of the whole world, praying our Rosaries and offering our prayers and penances and sufferings and mortifications and almsgiving to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Let us work in behalf of the governor of the human race, Christ the King, no matter who calumniates us in the process. Every Rosary we pray, each moment we spend before Our Lord's Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament, every offering we make to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary can do far more for the good of souls and of our nation than all of the concerted, insane and absurd effort to make naturalism bear fruit against itself.
