Quick Draw Jorge and His Own Baba Looey

by Thomas A. Droleskey

Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis has admitted that many of his thoughts come into his head "randomly," whereupon they come forth unfiltered from a motor mouth that has no "off" mechanism. It is no exaggeration whatsoever or doing this heretic any injustice to refer to him as "Quick Draw Jorge," a nod to the Hanna and Barbera cartoon character, "Quick Draw McGraw."

Just as the cartoon character "Quick Draw McGraw" had a sidekick, Baba Looey, a nod to Desi Arnaz's singing Babalu on I Love Lucy, so does Quick Draw Jorge have his own personal Baba Looey, a man who makes him, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, seem to appear as a disciplined Thomist by way of comparison.

Yes, Quick Draw Jorge's Baba Looey is even more undisciplined and more voluble than he is, something that is quite an accomplishment.

Quick Draw Jorge's Baba Looey is none other than a man who thought he had a chance to be the universal public face of apostasy earlier this year, a man who "shocked and awed" Romans with his peasant "How I am doin' ways" as he smoked his cigars, chowed down on bowls full of pasta at the pasterias along the Borgo Pio and appeared on every television program that would have him as a guest.

Yes, Quick Draw Jorge's personal Baba Looey is none other than the conciliar "archbishop" of New York, the clownish apostate named Timothy Michael Dolan, who is gushing like a school girl over Quick Draw Jorge's interview with "Father" Antonio Spadoro, S.J., of La Civiltà Cattolica on behalf of America Magazine and other Jesuit publications worldwide required a great deal of effort to complete.

Eager to get on Quick Draw Jorge's stagecoach, perhaps mindful of the fact that he has a "shot" at succeeding Jorge one day as he, Baba Looey Dolan, is only sixty-three years of age, the conciliar "archbishop" of New York since April 15, 2009, who once distinguished himself by wearing the infamous "cheesehead miter" during the "homily" at the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service as the conciliar "archbishop" of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on September 8, 2002, the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, has given his own interview to America magazine.

Timothy Michael Dolan's interview, published recently in America magazine, serves as a prelude for tomorrow's commentary, which will focus on Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's cavalier treatment of Faith and Morals in the specific context of the daily carnage of the innocent preborn, having, of course, dealt at length several times with the false pontiff's acceptance of the homosexual collective's vocabulary and agenda (see Francis: Apostle of Antichrist, part three).

Baba Looey Dolan Gets With the Program

Baba Looey Dolan's interview with Kevin Clarke of America magazine was relatively brief, making it relatively easy to dissect in a relatively short space of time:

America: Many found Pope's Francis' words blunt and more than a little shocking. What was your gut reaction?

Dolan: My gut reaction?  "Yippie!" I wanted to sing out a loud “Alleluia!” For one, I was so exhilarated that a Pope would even sit down for such a lengthy, personal interview. All of us take risks in doing this—as I am right now with you—but it’s worth the risk. Then, to have a Pope get so personal about his style of prayer, his models of holiness, his hopes and frustrations. It reminded of an ancient title for the bishop of Rome, Servant of the Servants of God. He’s not aloof from us, above us. To use his words, he’s walking with us. (Baba Looey Dolan, Frankly Babbling.)




This is how a man who believes, albeit mistakenly, himself to be a Prince of the Catholic Church speaks in a formal interview, which in and of itself is the result of the Americanist ethos of "freedom of the press" that was unheard of in the Middle Ages and would have been considered a great offense to the dignity to the high state of a papal elector even as late as the pontificate of our last true pope thus far, Pope Pius XII.


Two things come to mind here when I read this.

The first involved the lyrics to the Quick Draw McGraw theme, which began with the words "Yippee yi-o ki-a" (Quick Draw McGraw Lyrics).

The second was to recall the words spoken by actor William Boyd, portraying his signature role, Hopalong Cassidy, in the twenty-second Hopalong Cassidy motion picture, Sunset Trail, which was released in 1939. Boyd, who was deathly afraid of horses in real life (something that he overcame to a certain extent as he grew to love "Topper," the horse given him by his fifth and final wife, Grace Bradley Boyd, who outlived him by twenty-eight years after his death in 1972), agreed to parody his fear of horses and riding by having his Hopalong Cassidy go undercover as a "dude" so as to ferret out a scheming gambler who had murdered the husband of a woman who was forced to run a dude ranch the murder. (The movie also featured a satirical send-up of Clarence Mulford, the New York City civil servant who had created the Hopalong Cassidy character in a series of novels, who was always complaining to producers about their lack of fidelity to his books. Producer Harry Sherman said, "It's time to put this old crank in his place." A character named E. Prescott Furbush did just that.)

Dressing in outlandish cowboy clothes and pretending that "William H. Cassidy," the dude, knew nothing about horses and riding, exited the house of the dude ranch and whimpered a high-pitched "Yippee!" when assaying the grounds, much to the laughter of those around him.

Yes, Timothy Michael Dolan is the master of the vernacular, of ordinary street language, of a silliness that is beneath a man who believes himself to be a Successor of the Apostles and a Prince of the Catholic Church.

Then again, Baba Looey Dolan is only following the free-flowing style of the man who serves as the current universal public face of apostasy, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis.

Timothy Michael Dolan spoke of the "risks" associated with granting an interview. He should know. He has spoken in all manner of incredibly stupid ways since he became the conciliar successor to Edward "Cardinal" Egan, who, it should be noted, was an enabler of predator clergy and a clerical thug in the model of his mentor, the corrupt, venal John "Cardinal" Cody, the conciliar archbishop of Chicago, Illinois, from June 14, 1965, to the time of his death on April 25, 1982.

Consider the following  two "blasts" from Baba Looey Dolan's recent past, followed by a few brief words about each:

"This is awesome for me," Archbishop Dolan said.  "I have long admired the work of the Anti-Defamation League from afar, and now to receive your welcome and your assurances of our hope for future cooperation, which I enthusiastically share, means very much to me."(Press Release of the Anti-Defamation League.)

Here is the second of many such Baba Looey Dolan "blasts," one that is familiar to longtime readers of this site but perhaps unfamiliar to those who have just begun accessing its articles:

Thanksgiving is a time of the year when people are open to the Lord, and we don't think about ourselves. We're grateful to God. We're conscious that somebody, some call him or her, whatever you want, somebody beyond us is in charge, and we are immensely grateful. (Is 'Superman' Catholic?)

"Whatever you want"? Perhaps a little reminder from something called the First Commandment might get you to speak about God with reference and precision, not a breezy, flippant casualness that reaffirms, even if by inadvertence, Catholics and non-Catholics alike that it really does not matter what you call God or how or even if your worship Him if you participate in the spectacle of a "thanksgiving day" that features many Americans gathering around their turkey dinners "thanking" "God" that they live in land where they can practice "freedom of choice" when it comes to killing innocent babies, a land of "liberty and justice" for all except for the Sacred Rights of Christ the King and for the innocent babies themselves, a land where it really does not make difference you call God as long as you remember that this is, after all, "one nation under God" even though it does not matter Who this God is or what He has revealed to us or that every nation has an obligation to profess belief in the one and only true God of Divine Revelation.

Time simply does not permit a full and complete recitation of Baba Looey Dolan's verbal blasts, some of which have come during speeches in places such as synagogues and Mohammedan meeting halls (see Ever Faithful To Their False Religion).

Suffice it for the present to note that the "risks" Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis believes are "worth taking" are nothing other than sins of imprudence that leads Catholics and non-Catholics alike into thinking that the Catholic Faith is so flexible as to be able to adapt doctrine, liturgy, moral teaching and pastoral praxis to the exigencies of concrete historical circumstances.

It must be remembered that Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis himself, ever quick on the draw of imprudence, does not speak of "absolute truth" as it is his condemned belief that "we encounter Jesus in history" and must "rediscover him anew" without being part of a "no church" that is "self-referential" and assured that it has "all of the answers."

Timothy Michael Dolan, Bergoglio/Francis's own Baba Looey, amplified this very point in his brief America magazine interview:

How do you think U.S. bishops will respond?

Dolan: The jury’s back: We bishops welcome and applaud his remarks. We bishops have placed the new evangelization as our top priority, as both Blessed John Paul II and Pope-emeritus Benedict asked us. We realize that perception is a pivotal factor in the effectiveness of that sacred task. If the church is perceived as crabby, nagging, hung-up on a few “pet peeves,” or judgmental, as unjust and inaccurate as that perception might be, we can’t evangelize very well.  What Pope Francis has done is popped the blister of that perception, and we bishops cheer him on.  We are about a yes,  not about a no.

Some, who have felt marginalized by the church, have found great hope in the interview. Others, who prefer perhaps a more disciplined, doctrinally oriented church, have apparently been thrown for a loop by them. Are both sides missing something or is it possible that his positions could lead to even more discord within the church, rather than the healing Pope Francis seems to be seeking?

Dolan: Yeah, both sides miss something, or, rather, someone. Pope Francis is probably frustrated that all the attention is on him, his interview, his statements. He wants the attention on Jesus. What he’s really telling us is, first things first!  Seek ye first…! If we emphasize Jesus, His Person, teaching, salvation, invitation, death and resurrection, everything else works out. My friend, Father Bob Barron, observes that, when he helps a foreign visitor who wants to understand baseball, he doesn’t start with a technicality like the infield fly rule. Start with the beauty, majesty, poetry, legend of the drama of the game! That’s what the Holy Father is suggesting: Start with Jesus, the way, the truth, the life. Start with the Truth, not the consequences! (Baba Looey Dolan, Frankly Babbling.)


Do not be shocked.

Baba Looey Dolan is of one Modernist mind and heart with Quick Draw Jorge. There is no "space" between them whatsoever.

A faithful adherence to Catholic doctrine, which is immutable as it has come from God Himself, Who is immutable, is considered to be perceived by the multitudes to be nothing other than a "hang up" about a "few pet peeves" that belonged to the "no church" of the past?

Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Sacred Deposit of Faith are inseparable. To know Him is to love what He the teaching He gave us, which is why the Catholic Church has taken care from the time of her birth to speak with precision and exactitude about Our Lord as she is His Mystical Bride who is guided infallibly by the very Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost.

The teaching of the Catholic Faith is not about sentimentality or emotionalism.

Pope Saint Pius X reminded us that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is no kind of sappy sentimentalist and that there is no conflict between showing compassion to repentant sinners while denouncing the horror that is sin and its promotion in civil society:

Further, whilst Jesus was kind to sinners and to those who went astray, He did not respect their false ideas, however sincere they might have appeared. He loved them all, but He instructed them in order to convert them and save them. Whilst He called to Himself in order to comfort them, those who toiled and suffered, it was not to preach to them the jealousy of a chimerical equality. Whilst He lifted up the lowly, it was not to instill in them the sentiment of a dignity independent from, and rebellious against, the duty of obedience. Whilst His heart overflowed with gentleness for the souls of good-will, He could also arm Himself with holy indignation against the profaners of the House of God, against the wretched men who scandalized the little ones, against the authorities who crush the people with the weight of heavy burdens without putting out a hand to lift them. He was as strong as he was gentle. He reproved, threatened, chastised, knowing, and teaching us that fear is the beginning of wisdom, and that it is sometimes proper for a man to cut off an offending limb to save his body. Finally, He did not announce for future society the reign of an ideal happiness from which suffering would be banished; but, by His lessons and by His example, He traced the path of the happiness which is possible on earth and of the perfect happiness in heaven: the royal way of the Cross. These are teachings that it would be wrong to apply only to one's personal life in order to win eternal salvation; these are eminently social teachings, and they show in Our Lord Jesus Christ something quite different from an inconsistent and impotent humanitarianism. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)

People need to be instructed in the Holy Faith in an orderly, systematic manner, and they need to understand that Its doctrinal integrity is an essential part of Its beauty. Nothing impure, nothing tinged with error or imprecision can be associated with the Holy Faith, which is not a projection of the human being of what how It should be in full concord with their own expectations and desires.

Canon Francis Ripley's This Is The Faith is an excellent book to use for the instruction of adolescent and adults seeking to convert to the Catholic Faith. Several fine catechisms, including, of course, the Baltimore Catechism and Father Joseph Deharbe's Small Catechism are excellent for children of all ages. Indeed, both are superb even for adults who need the Faith explained in simple ways that are no less sure than those used by the late Canon Ripley in This Is The Faith.

To suggest that the beauty of the Catholic Faith is somehow in conflict with a firm and sure knowledge of her doctrines is to crown Christ the King anew with a crown thorns compose of the overweening pride and arrogance of those who want to make of It their own personal plaything, communicating to others that Its truths are as malleable as Playdough.

Insofar as "learning" from Bergoglio/Francis's "call for discernment" in pastoral ministry, Timothy Michael Dolan is being a little cheeky (I will resist the obvious jokes) when he claims that he is a "rookie" when compared to Jorge Mario Bergoglio as the two laymen were installed as conciliar presbyters less than seven years ago (December 13, 1969, for Bergoglio, and June 19, 1976, for Dolan). Dolan has been known for decades as the "hail fellow well-met," a men who loves to chug down beer and whiskey while he puffs away on a cigar and mingle with the crowds.

Remember, this is how Baba Looey Dolan defined his mission in New York shortly on the very day of his installation as the conciliar "archbishop" there on April 15, 2009, in a column published in the New York Daily News:

I aim to be a happy bishop, sharing joys and laughs with you. So you will see me at the St. Patrick's parade, and at the new Yankee Stadium, and at processions and feast days and barbecues across our almost 400 parishes. Being Catholic is not a heavy burden, snuffing the joy out of life; rather our faith in Jesus and His Church gives meaning, purpose and joy to life. I love being a Catholic, I love being a priest, and I fully intend to love being archbishop of New York while loving all of you in the Church in New York. (Timothy Dolan,  New Archbishop talks to News.)

This is one goal that Timothy Michael Dolan, that grand champion of the heresies of separation of Church and State and religious liberty (see Candidate For Man Of The Year?) and that "man of the people" faux prelate who gives "shout outs" to the likes of the pro-abortion, pro-perversity Vice President of the United States of America, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. at the Cathedral of Saint Patrick in the Borough of Manhattan of the City of New York, New York, has fulfilled with great distinction and aplomb. He has been reaffirmed Catholics in rank sentimentality as he has reaffirmed adherents of false religions in their false beliefs that can not bring them to a knowledge of the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity, in this life or possess the glory of His Beatific Vision in eternity.

Finally, to assert that Quick Draw Jorge is not "aloof" is not only a swipe at the very apostate who promoted him to be the conciliar "archbishop" of New York, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, but it is to spit on the memory of our true popes, many of whom were beloved by the Catholic faithful.

For example, true and profound sorrow filled the hearts of the Catholic faithful, especially in Rome, as news of the deaths of Popes Pius IX, Leo XIII and Saint Pius X spread among them. Each of these true and legitimate Successors of Saint Peter were loved by the sheep, who knew that each of them was close to them in their priestly hearts, effecting bonds of true communion and closeness that no amount of appearing to be physically "one of the people," something that is degrading to the dignity of the papal office, can attempt to supplant. And this is not to overlook for one second the solicitude of these holy pontiffs for the needs of the Diocese of Rome, especially for the poor and for the children.

All of Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's publicity stunts as he mugs the cameras prove nothing other than he is full of himself as no man can be truly concerned about the good of souls when he blasphemes God so regularly, presides over sacrilegious and sacramentally barren liturgies daily and propagates a plethora of heresy on a daily basis at a rate that is truly unprecedented in the annals of the fifty-five years of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

Baba Looey Gets the Word Out To One and All: He Is Quick Draw Jorge's Man, S'allright?

Timothy Michael Dolan has been a very busy apostate this week.

Yes, he also blabbed aplenty to reporters after his staging of Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service on Sunday, September 22, 2013 the Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost and the Commemoration of Saint Thomas Villanova and the Commemoration of Saint Mauritius and Companions. 

This is a report that was carried in The New York Times:

Three days after Pope Francis set a new tone for the Roman Catholic Church, Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, the archbishop of New York, embraced the “magnificent interview” in which the pope chastised the church for its obsession with sexual morality, and called him “a breath of fresh air.”

After Sunday Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Cardinal Dolan, who has himself softened his language on homosexuality in the past year, likened the pope to the Yankees’ retiring relief pitcher: “I think he’s our Mariano Rivera. He’s a great relief to all of us.”

Last Wednesday, Pope Francis surprised Catholics and non-Catholics alike with the publication of a lengthy interview in which he reprimanded the church for emphasizing dogma and moral doctrines over ministering to its people, including “those who have quit or are indifferent.” He laid out a vision for a more inclusive church as a “home for all” and said the church could not afford to be “obsessed” with same-sex marriage, abortion and contraception.

The comments were a sharp departure from his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, who had zealously defended church doctrine, once calling homosexuality “a strong tendency ordered toward an intrinsic moral evil.”

Cardinal Dolan, whose name was floated as a possible candidate for the papacy, made his own waves last spring in televised interviews on Easter Sunday. Having vigorously fought the legalizing of same-sex marriage in New York, he said the church could be more welcoming of gay men and lesbians. “We’ve got to do better to see that our defense of marriage is not reduced to an attack on gay people,” he said.

On Sunday, Cardinal Dolan, who is president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, held a brief news conference in the sanctuary to talk about Pope Francis’ first six months in the Vatican and to address the pope’s groundbreaking interview with an Italian Jesuit journal. He was joined by the Very Rev. Robert Barron of Chicago, a priest known for his weekly radio program “Word on Fire,” who delivered the homily.

Asked how the city’s gay Catholic population regarded the new pope, Cardinal Dolan said, “I think they embrace him and I’m glad they do.” The pope’s message, Cardinal Dolan said, was that “we don’t look at people first and foremost as their sexual orientation or sexual identification; we look at him as a child of God, made in his image and likeness.” He added: “That’s the glasses we use. Everything else is secondary, so I hope that hits home.”

Father Barron offered a similar analysis. “If the first and last thing that gay people hear from the Catholic Church is that your acts are intrinsically disordered, that’s a tragedy,” he said. “I heard a new pastoral strategy in this interview. It’s a question of what do you prioritize, how do you do the work? You lead always with the merciful face of Christ.”

Still, Cardinal Dolan said the interview did not signal a shift in church doctrine or policy, whether toward same-sex marriage or abortion.

“One of the lines that nobody seems to be paying attention to was when he said I’m a loyal son of the church,” he said. “He knows that the highest and most sacred responsibility is to pass on the timeless teaching of the church.

“What he’s saying is that we have to think of a more effective way to do it, because if the church comes off as a scold, it’s counterproductive,” he said. “If the church comes off as a loving, embracing mother, who periodically has to correct her children, then we will be effective.”

Worshipers leaving the standing-room-only service embraced the pope’s comments. “I was very pleased that he’s open to things that the Catholic Church has been very rigid about,” said Autumn DeMauro, of Pittsburgh. “It could give young people a reason to come back.” (Baba Looey Dolan and Pal At Work in New York.)


Here's a little reminder to Timothy Michael Dolan and his pal from Chicago, "Father" Robert Barron: the Ten Commandments, which were given to Moses atop Mount Sinai by God Himself, Who has entrusted them to His Catholic Church for their eternal safekeeping and infallible explication, contains a series of both negative and positive commands. God does indeed teach us "no" in resounding terms, something demonstrated in the passage from Pope Saint Pius X's Notre Charge Apostolique that was quoted earlier in this commentary.

Consider, for example, the First Commandment, as one who disobeys its binding precepts will come to hate and thus disobey each of the other nine:

I Am the Lord Thy God; thou shalt not have strange gods before Me.

Pope Leo XIII was one among many of our true pontiffs and bishops who explained that God means "no," and that excludes any exceptions or revisionism:

15. Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups. Know them by their fruits and avoid them. Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions, and the craving to reconcile the maxims of the Gospel with those of the revolution. These men seek to reconcile Christ and Belial, the Church of God and the state without God. (Pope Leo XIII, Custodi Di Quella Fede, December 8, 1892.)


Timothy Michael Dolan, Baba Looey to Jorge Mario Bergoglio's Quick Draw McGraw, has been engaged in the mania of false ecumenism from the earliest days of his life as a presbyter and as an auxiliary "bishop" in his native Archdiocese of Saint Louis, Missouri. He has been particularly active in going to Talmudic synagogues, wherein he has committed one egregious act of apostasy after another, and in praising Protestants, Mohammedans and the Orthodox. There has been no end to the man's violation of the binding precepts of the First Commandment as he has followed the lead of the conciliar "popes," including the one who elevated him to the conciliar hierarchy, Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, and to the man who promoted him to New York, Ratzinger/Benedict, and, of course, to the man over whom he is fawning at present, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis.

It is hard to believe that it was a scant seven months ago now, that Timothy Michael Dolan interrupted what is called the "Eucharistic Prayer" at the North American College in Rome, Italy, to speak to his two concelebrating presbyters:


In Rome, as the pope departed the Vatican for Castel Gandolfo, the papal villa outside Rome, Cardinal Dolan gathered on the roof of the college – a home for American seminarians in Rome – to watch the sky. As the bells tolled and a helicopter rose above St. Peter’s Basilica, the cardinal cheered, two seminarians stood on a wall to wave American and Bavarian (in honor of the pope’s home region) flags and the crowd broke into a spontaneous refrain of “Ad Multos Annos,” or “Many Happy Years.”

But Cardinal Dolan, just named a prince of the church last year, said the reality of the moment had actually sunk in during that morning’s Mass, in a chapel at the college. During the eucharistic prayer, the cardinal prayed for “Benedict, our pope and bishop,” and then paused.

I was overtaken,” he said. “You’re not supposed to do this, because you’re not supposed to depart, but I turned to the other two priests, and I said, ‘That’s the last time I’ll say that,'” Cardinal Dolan said. “And that means something, you know – it sort of dawns on you that the chair is vacant. And seeing him today, seeing the helicopter, it’s been amazingly moving.” (Awe-Struck and Tongue-Tied, Dolan Bids Pope Goodbye.)

Ah, that was then, this is now. Benedict Who?

It's now time to do as Jorge does, and everything Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is doing is contrary to the Catholic Faith, something that has been demonstrated amply on this site in the past six months, including in the three part series that concluded on Monday (see Francis: Apostle of Antichrist, part one, Francis: Apostle of Antichrist, part two and Francis: Apostle of Antichrist, part three.)

True popes and true bishops and true pastors of souls have been faithful to their solemn duties before Christ the King to adhere to everything in Catholic Faith, Worship and Morals without any deviation. While they have called sinners to repentance with a true concern for their eternal salvation, they have also done everything possible to denounce the spread of evil under cover of civil law and throughout what passes for popular culture when the need arose for them to do so.

Pope Leo XIII explained this solemn duty in Sapientiae Christianae, January 10, 1890:


10. But, if the laws of the State are manifestly at variance with the divine law, containing enactments hurtful to the Church, or conveying injunctions adverse to the duties imposed by religion, or if they violate in the person of the supreme Pontiff the authority of Jesus Christ, then, truly, to resist becomes a positive duty, to obey, a crime; a crime, moreover, combined with misdemeanor against the State itself, inasmuch as every offense leveled against religion is also a sin against the State. Here anew it becomes evident how unjust is the reproach of sedition; for the obedience due to rulers and legislators is not refused, but there is a deviation from their will in those precepts only which they have no power to enjoin. Commands that are issued adversely to the honor due to God, and hence are beyond the scope of justice, must be looked upon as anything rather than laws. You are fully aware, venerable brothers, that this is the very contention of the Apostle St. Paul, who, in writing to Titus, after reminding Christians that they are "to be subject to princes and powers, and to obey at a word," at once adds: "And to be ready to every good work."Thereby he openly declares that, if laws of men contain injunctions contrary to the eternal law of God, it is right not to obey them. In like manner, the Prince of the Apostles gave this courageous and sublime answer to those who would have deprived him of the liberty of preaching the Gospel: "If it be just in the sight of God to hear you rather than God, judge ye, for we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard." (Pope Leo XIII, Sapientiae Christianae, January 10, 1890.)

But in this same matter, touching Christian faith, there are other duties whose exact and religious observance, necessary at all times in the interests of eternal salvation, become more especially so in these our days. Amid such reckless and widespread folly of opinion, it is, as We have said, the office of the Church to undertake the defense of truth and uproot errors from the mind, and this charge has to be at all times sacredly observed by her, seeing that the honor of God and the salvation of men are confided to her keeping. But, when necessity compels, not those only who are invested with power of rule are bound to safeguard the integrity of faith, but, as St. Thomas maintains: "Each one is under obligation to show forth his faith, either to instruct and encourage others of the faithful, or to repel the attacks of unbelievers.'' To recoil before an enemy, or to keep silence when from all sides such clamors are raised against truth, is the part of a man either devoid of character or who entertains doubt as to the truth of what he professes to believe. In both cases such mode of behaving is base and is insulting to God, and both are incompatible with the salvation of mankind. This kind of conduct is profitable only to the enemies of the faith, for nothing emboldens the wicked so greatly as the lack of courage on the part of the good. Moreover, want of vigor on the part of Christians is so much the more blameworthy, as not seldom little would be needed on their part to bring to naught false charges and refute erroneous opinions, and by always exerting themselves more strenuously they might reckon upon being successful. After all, no one can be prevented from putting forth that strength of soul which is the characteristic of true Christians, and very frequently by such display of courage our enemies lose heart and their designs are thwarted. Christians are, moreover, born for combat, whereof the greater the vehemence, the more assured, God aiding, the triumph: "Have confidence; I have overcome the world." Nor is there any ground for alleging that Jesus Christ, the Guardian and Champion of the Church, needs not in any manner the help of men. Power certainly is not wanting to Him, but in His loving kindness He would assign to us a share in obtaining and applying the fruits of salvation procured through His grace.

The chief elements of this duty consist in professing openly and unflinchingly the Catholic doctrine, and in propagating it to the utmost of our power. For, as is often said, with the greatest truth, there is nothing so hurtful to Christian wisdom as that it should not be known, since it possesses, when loyally received, inherent power to drive away error. (Pope Leo XIII, Sapientiae Christianae, January 10, 1890.)

Pope Pius XI, seeing the threat to the integrity of marriage and the family and to the very inviolability of innocent human life in the womb, issued Casti Connubii on December 31, 1930. He knew that fallen men would be tempted to find an "easy path" if the laws of the civil state began to sanction that which was opposed both to the peace and happiness of men in this life and for all eternity. Pope Pius XI condemned contraception, "civil unions" and baby-killing, and he did so in no uncertain terms.

Although the appendix below contains more extensive excerpts from Casti Connubii, the few below demonstrate that Quick Draw Jorge and his sidekick, Baba Looey Dolan, are not members of the Catholic Church as they do not believe, think, speak or act as her children:


11. Thus amongst the blessings of marriage, the child holds the first place. And indeed the Creator of the human race Himself, Who in His goodness wishes to use men as His helpers in the propagation of life, taught this when, instituting marriage in Paradise, He said to our first parents, and through them to all future spouses: "Increase and multiply, and fill the earth." As St. Augustine admirably deduces from the words of the holy Apostle Saint Paul to Timothy when he says: "The Apostle himself is therefore a witness that marriage is for the sake of generation: 'I wish,' he says, 'young girls to marry.' And, as if someone said to him, 'Why?,' he immediately adds: 'To bear children, to be mothers of families'." (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 30, 1931.)

To begin at the very source of these evils, their basic principle lies in this, that matrimony is repeatedly declared to be not instituted by the Author of nature nor raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a true sacrament, but invented by man. Some confidently assert that they have found no evidence of the existence of matrimony in nature or in her laws, but regard it merely as the means of producing life and of gratifying in one way or another a vehement impulse; on the other hand, others recognize that certain beginnings or, as it were, seeds of true wedlock are found in the nature of man since, unless men were bound together by some form of permanent tie, the dignity of husband and wife or the natural end of propagating and rearing the offspring would not receive satisfactory provision. At the same time they maintain that in all beyond this germinal idea matrimony, through various concurrent causes, is invented solely by the mind of man, established solely by his will.

How grievously all these err and how shamelessly they leave the ways of honesty is already evident from what we have set forth here regarding the origin and nature of wedlock, its purposes and the good inherent in it. The evil of this teaching is plainly seen from the consequences which its advocates deduce from it, namely, that the laws, institutions and customs by which wedlock is governed, since they take their origin solely from the will of man, are subject entirely to him, hence can and must be founded, changed and abrogated according to human caprice and the shifting circumstances of human affairs; that the generative power which is grounded in nature itself is more sacred and has wider range than matrimony -- hence it may be exercised both outside as well as within the confines of wedlock, and though the purpose of matrimony be set aside, as though to suggest that the license of a base fornicating woman should enjoy the same rights as the chaste motherhood of a lawfully wedded wife.

Armed with these principles, some men go so far as to concoct new species of unions, suited, as they say, to the present temper of men and the times, which various new forms of matrimony they presume to label "temporary," "experimental," and "companionate." These offer all the indulgence of matrimony and its rights without, however, the indissoluble bond, and without offspring, unless later the parties alter their cohabitation into a matrimony in the full sense of the law.

Indeed there are some who desire and insist that these practices be legitimatized by the law or, at least, excused by their general acceptance among the people. They do not seem even to suspect that these proposals partake of nothing of the modern "culture" in which they glory so much, but are simply hateful abominations which beyond all question reduce our truly cultured nations to the barbarous standards of savage peoples. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930.)

Pope Pius XI did not need to engage in a "dialogue" with modern culture. He knew that souls needed a clear explication of moral truth, not a gentle coddling of their sinful passions and inclinations.

Similarly, Pope Pius XI, as longtime readers of this site know, minced no words as he condemned those in public life who support the execution of innocent children in their mothers' wombs:


67. 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.)

This is not the language of Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis or Timothy Michael Dolan as they are adherents of a false religion that is but the counterfeit ape of Catholicism.

Indeed, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis hugs and kisses pro-abortion and pro-perversity public officials such as Argentine President Christine Kirchner and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and Bolivia President Evo Morales, a former conciliar "bishop" whose record as a "bishop" has been expunged from the Catholic Hierarchy website, and Uruguayan President Jose Alberto Mujica Cordano, an avowed atheist. Timothy Michael Dolan hobnobs with 'em all in this country (see Timmy's In The Well (Of Americanism, That Is)).

Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis and the likes of Timothy Michael Dolan and Sean O'Malley, the conciliar "archbishop" of Boston, Massachusetts, have preached incessantly about dialogue as they have told Catholics that "patience" is needed to win over souls as they, the conciliar officials.

How has this all worked out for the innocent preborn, who continue to be slaughtered by surgical means at a rate of over four thousand a day here in the United States of America and over 20,000 worldwide?

How has this all worked out for the countless millions upon millions of babies killed by means of chemicals, pills, potions and mechanical devices?

How has this all worked out for the stability of the family and for the good of nations?

How did over thirty years of "engagement and dialogue" change the late United States Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-New York).

How did over twenty-four years of "engagement and dialogue" change the late William Brennan, a Catholic who cast a vote in favor the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United  States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, January, 22, 1973, while he served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America. decisions he reaffirmed in subsequent cases?

How did twenty years of "engagement and dialogue" change the late Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Thomas P. O'Neill (D-Massachusetts)?

How did over thirty-six years of "engagement and dialogue" change the late United States Senator Edward Moore Kennedy (D-Massachussets)?

How did over thirty-three years of "engagement and dialogue" change the late United States Representative Geraldine Anne Ferraro-Zaccarro (D-New York).

How has over thirty-five years of "engagement and dialogue changed former Governor of New York Mario Matthew Cuomo?

How has over twenty-three years of "engagement and dialogue" changed former Mayor of the City of New York Rudolph William Giuliani?

How has twenty years of "engagement and dialogue" changed current Governor of New York Andrew Mark Cuomo?

How has a decade of "engagement and dialogue" changed United States Senator Kirsten Gillebrand (D-New York).

How has forty years of "engagement and dialogue" changed the Vice President of the United States of America, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. (D-Delaware; see, for example, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., Demagogue Update).

How are "engagement and dialogue" working out in the Land of Saints and Scholars, Ireland, at this time?

Here is the answer to that last question:


The Mater Hospital in Dublin has said it will comply with the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act 2013.

In a brief statement issued yesterday the hospital said it would comply with the Act, which sets out the circumstances where a termination of pregnancy may be performed.

The statement says: “The Mater Hospital has carefully considered the Act. The Hospital’s priority is to be at the frontier of compassion, concern and clinical care for all our patients. Having regard to that duty, the Hospital will comply with the law as provided for in the act.

The hospital’s compliance with the legislation came into question during the summer when a member of its board of directors said it could “not comply” with the legislation as it ran counter to its Catholic ethos. Fr Kevin Doran, who sits on both the board of directors and the board of governors would not comment this afternoon on the hospital’s decision or his future involvement in it.

The Mater Misericordiae University Hospital is a Catholic voluntary hospital and was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1861. In its mission statement, the hospital says that by caring for the sick, “we participate in the healing ministry of Jesus Christ”.

Though it is named in the Act as one of 25 “appropriate institutions” for the termination of pregnancy, Fr Doran said during the summer: “The Mater can’t carry out abortions because it goes against its ethos. I would be very concerned that the Minister [for Health, James Reilly] sees fit to make it impossible for hospitals to have their own ethos.

“The issue is broader than just abortion. What’s happening is the Minister is saying hospitals are not entitled to have an ethos.”

A spokesman said the hospital’s board and management had consulted “widely across the hospital” since the enactment of the legislation in July. The issue had also been discussed at board level.

When asked yesterday about the hospital’s decision, Fr Doran said: “I’m not going to comment on anything. This has just happened.”

Asked if he was going to remain on as a member of the hospital’s boards of governors and directors, again said: “I am not going to comment on anything.”

He had said in August that if the hospital were to decide to comply with the legislation he assumed there “would be very serious discussion between the Archbishop [of Dublin Dr Diarmuid Martin] and the management of the hospital.”

The Mater hospital is a single-member company.

Its parent company is the Mater Misericordiae and the Children’s University Hospitals (Temple St) Ltd.

Its website says the majority of the members of the parent company are Sisters of Mercy and the remaining members represent the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin, the Catholic Nurses’ Guild of Ireland, the Society of St Vincent de Paul and the medical consultants of Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and the Children’s University Hospital. (Mater Hospital says it will comply with abortion laws.)

Yes, yes, yes,

More fruit of "engagement and dialogue."

Even those in the conciliar version of the religious life have lost all sight of one's apostolic duties, which is why the words of Pope Leo XIII, contained in Sapientiae Christianae, that were quoted earlier in this commentary concerning the duty of resisting unjust laws are completely foreign to them. Catholicism is simply foreign to the minds of those trapped in the false religion of conciliarism.

As will be explored more fully in a follow-up to this commentary under a different title, the daily carnage of the innocent preborn is the inevitable result of the Protestant Revolution's overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King and the subsequent rise and institutionalization of one Judeo-Masonic naturalist philosophy/ideology after another.

The lords of the counterfeit church of conciliarism have made their "official reconciliation" with these anti-Incarnational principles of Modernity, and now Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Timothy Michael Dolan would have us believe that we have been "obsessing" about matters of fundamental moral truths as the blood of the innocent continues to be shed on a daily basis around the world with complete legal impunity.

Is it any wonder that all manner of "superbugs" are emerging in the United States of America, including in Sacramento, California, the state capital which has seen the pro-abortion, pro-perversity "Catholic" Governor, G. Edmund Brown, Jr., spearhead one hideous piece of legislation after another and where various judges have done their best to imitate Herod the Tetrarch and Pontius Pilate? (See Rise of 'superpests' in US called 'slow-train wreck'.)

You see, it's kind of like this, Quick Draw Jorge and Baba Looey Dolan:

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.)

Catholicism is the one and only foundation of persona and social order. Nothing else:


Here we have, founded by Catholics, an inter-denominational association that is to work for the reform of civilization, an undertaking which is above all religious in character; for there is no true civilization without a moral civilization, and no true moral civilization without the true religion: it is a proven truth, a historical fact. The new Sillonists cannot pretend that they are merely working on “the ground of practical realities” where differences of belief do not matter. Their leader is so conscious of the influence which the convictions of the mind have upon the result of the action, that he invites them, whatever religion they may belong to, “to provide on the ground of practical realities, the proof of the excellence of their personal convictions.” And with good reason: indeed, all practical results reflect the nature of one’s religious convictions, just as the limbs of a man down to his finger-tips, owe their very shape to the principle of life that dwells in his body.  (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)

This, nevertheless, is what they want to do with human society; they dream of changing its natural and traditional foundations; they dream of a Future City built on different principles, and they dare to proclaim these more fruitful and more beneficial than the principles upon which the present Christian City rests.

No, Venerable Brethren, We must repeat with the utmost energy in these times of social and intellectual anarchy when everyone takes it upon himself to teach as a teacher and lawmaker - the City cannot be built otherwise than as God has built it; society cannot be setup unless the Church lays the foundations and supervises the work; no, civilization is not something yet to be found, nor is the New City to be built on hazy notions; it has been in existence and still is: it is Christian civilization, it is the Catholic City. It has only to be set up and restored continually against the unremitting attacks of insane dreamers, rebels and miscreants. omnia instaurare in Christo. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)

Although Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was referring to the Pharisees, His words about them apply just as well and just as equally to the lords of Modernity in the world and the lords of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism and their mad, inter-related schemes to build a "civilization of love" while spitting on the Social Reign of Christ the King:

Let them alone: they are blind, and leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into the pit. (Matthew 15: 14.)

With Our Lady as our sure guide and intercessor, may we indeed be ever earnest about making reparation for our own many sins, each of has contributed to the worsening of the state of the Church Militant here on earth and of the world-at-large. Once again, make no mistake about it: our own sins and our ingratitude and our lukewarmness have exacerbated, that is, worsened, the state of the Church Militant on earth. We cannot be content to wallow in spiritual mediocrity. We must accept whatever penances and humiliations that God chooses to send us so that we can give them back to His Most Sacred Heart through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother as her consecrated slaves, especially by means of praying as many Rosaries as our states-in-life permit.

Our Lady stands by the tomb of her Divine Son, Who has been buried mystically by the conciliarists' contempt for the truths that He has revealed exclusively through His Catholic Church and have been taught infallibly by her without any hint or shadow of change from Pentecost Sunday. We must keep her company at that tomb in our prayers, being ever willing to take on more penances and to renounce our own comfort and convenience and all attachment to human respect in order to help to usher in the day when the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will make it possible for the enemies of her Divine Son in the modern world and in the grips of Modernism will be vanquished, permitting the restoration of all things in Christ the King as we honor her as our Immaculate Queen.

Excerpts from Pope Pius XI's Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930

10. Now when We come to explain, Venerable Brethren, what are the blessings that God has attached to true matrimony, and how great they are, there occur to Us the words of that illustrious Doctor of the Church whom We commemorated recently in Our Encyclical Ad salutem on the occasion of the fifteenth centenary of his death:[9] "These," says St. Augustine, "are all the blessings of matrimony on account of which matrimony itself is a blessing; offspring, conjugal faith and the sacrament."[10] And how under these three heads is contained a splendid summary of the whole doctrine of Christian marriage, the holy Doctor himself expressly declares when he said: "By conjugal faith it is provided that there should be no carnal intercourse outside the marriage bond with another man or woman; with regard to offspring, that children should be begotten of love, tenderly cared for and educated in a religious atmosphere; finally, in its sacramental aspect that the marriage bond should not be broken and that a husband or wife, if separated, should not be joined to another even for the sake of offspring. This we regard as the law of marriage by which the fruitfulness of nature is adorned and the evil of incontinence is restrained."[11]

11. Thus amongst the blessings of marriage, the child holds the first place. And indeed the Creator of the human race Himself, Who in His goodness wishes to use men as His helpers in the propagation of life, taught this when, instituting marriage in Paradise, He said to our first parents, and through them to all future spouses: "Increase and multiply, and fill the earth."[12] As St. Augustine admirably deduces from the words of the holy Apostle Saint Paul to Timothy[13] when he says: "The Apostle himself is therefore a witness that marriage is for the sake of generation: 'I wish,' he says, 'young girls to marry.' And, as if someone said to him, 'Why?,' he immediately adds: 'To bear children, to be mothers of families'."[14]

12. How great a boon of God this is, and how great a blessing of matrimony is clear from a consideration of man's dignity and of his sublime end. For man surpasses all other visible creatures by the superiority of his rational nature alone. Besides, God wishes men to be born not only that they should live and fill the earth, but much more that they may be worshippers of God, that they may know Him and love Him and finally enjoy Him for ever in heaven; and this end, since man is raised by God in a marvelous way to the supernatural order, surpasses all that eye hath seen, and ear heard, and all that hath entered into the heart of man.[15] From which it is easily seen how great a gift of divine goodness and how remarkable a fruit of marriage are children born by the omnipotent power of God through the cooperation of those bound in wedlock.

13. But Christian parents must also understand that they are destined not only to propagate and preserve the human race on earth, indeed not only to educate any kind of worshippers of the true God, but children who are to become members of the Church of Christ, to raise up fellow-citizens of the Saints, and members of God's household,[16] that the worshippers of God and Our Savior may daily increase.

14. For although Christian spouses even if sanctified themselves cannot transmit sanctification to their progeny, nay, although the very natural process of generating life has become the way of death by which original sin is passed on to posterity, nevertheless, they share to some extent in the blessings of that primeval marriage of Paradise, since it is theirs to offer their offspring to the Church in order that by this most fruitful Mother of the children of God they may be regenerated through the laver of Baptism unto supernatural justice and finally be made living members of Christ, partakers of immortal life, and heirs of that eternal glory to which we all aspire from our inmost heart.

15. If a true Christian mother weigh well these things, she will indeed understand with a sense of deep consolation that of her the words of Our Savior were spoken: "A woman . . . when she hath brought forth the child remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world";[17] and proving herself superior to all the pains and cares and solicitudes of her maternal office with a more just and holy joy than that of the Roman matron, the mother of the Gracchi, she will rejoice in the Lord crowned as it were with the glory of her offspring. Both husband and wife, however, receiving these children with joy and gratitude from the hand of God, will regard them as a talent committed to their charge by God, not only to be employed for their own advantage or for that of an earthly commonwealth, but to be restored to God with interest on the day of reckoning.

16. The blessing of offspring, however, is not completed by the mere begetting of them, but something else must be added, namely the proper education of the offspring. For the most wise God would have failed to make sufficient provision for children that had been born, and so for the whole human race, if He had not given to those to whom He had entrusted the power and right to beget them, the power also and the right to educate them. For no one can fail to see that children are incapable of providing wholly for themselves, even in matters pertaining to their natural life, and much less in those pertaining to the supernatural, but require for many years to be helped, instructed, and educated by others. Now it is certain that both by the law of nature and of God this right and duty of educating their offspring belongs in the first place to those who began the work of nature by giving them birth, and they are indeed forbidden to leave unfinished this work and so expose it to certain ruin. But in matrimony provision has been made in the best possible way for this education of children that is so necessary, for, since the parents are bound together by an indissoluble bond, the care and mutual help of each is always at hand.

17. Since, however, We have spoken fully elsewhere on the Christian education of youth,[18] let Us sum it all up by quoting once more the words of St. Augustine: "As regards the offspring it is provided that they should be begotten lovingly and educated religiously,"[19] -- and this is also expressed succinctly in the Code of Canon Law -- "The primary end of marriage is the procreation and the education of children."[20]  (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930.)
