TelePrompTer: Weapon of Mass Disinformation
Thomas A. Droleskey
Barack Hussein Obama is an effective demagogue when a good script is fed into his ubiquitous TelePrompTer. Unlike his predecessor, former President George Walker Bush, who could mangle and butcher his mother tongue even with a TelePrompTer, Caesar Obamus can be a powerful force in behalf of statism when he speaks in broad generalities that mask a most fervent desire to make us all wards of the civil state. Barack Hussein Obama is, when relying upon that good script that is fed into the TelePrompTer, can be as effective in advancing the leftist brand of naturalism as the late President Ronald Wilson Reagan was in advancing a rightist brand of naturalism from January 20, 1981, to January 20, 1989.
The power of oratory, however, is used by demagogues to hide the reality of their policy proposals.
Determined to "succeed" where the statist, pro-abortion former President William Jefferson Blythe Clinton failed sixteen years ago, Barack Hussein Obama used his address to a joint session of the Congress of the United States of America last evening to create a sense of "urgency" so that the Federal government of the United States of America, filled to the brim with utilitarians and legal positivists and moral relativists and pro-aborts, can gradually assume the lion's share of control over a health-care industry that is controlled at the present time, at least for the most part, by profit-making corporations and insurance companies and the big pharmaceutical complex.
The problems that exist in the health care industry at this time--and there are many problems that exist in that industry--are the result of the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King wrought by the Protestant Revolt and by the rise of the vast complex of naturalistic philosophies and ideologies that are associated with or, at the very least, share the same naturalistic view of man and his problems as that of Judeo-Masonry. The Catholic Church alone has the true conception of man, and it is she who provided genuine health care to patients, seeking to minister both to the physical needs of those who are sick and, more importantly, to the needs of their immortal soul.
A world under the sway of the Social Reign of Christ the King would be composed of men and women who understood--and who accepted--their bodily mortality. Catholics know that their bodies are destined for death, praying every day to remain in a state of Sanctifying Grace so that they will be prepared for the moment of their Particular Judgment if it should come upon them when they least expect it. It is furthermore the case that a Catholic accepts and welcomes bodily penances as a merciful means sent to him by the Good God to make reparation for his sins and those of the whole world by offering up his patience endurance of pain and suffering to Him through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heat of Mary. A believing Catholic is not running off to the drug store every ten minutes to get some over-the-counter medication to alleviate every little ache and pain. And Catholic physicians would treat their patients with sensible measures as they sought at all times to see in their patients the suffering Christ, treating them as they would treat Him.
No amount of government nannyism and obsessing about bodily health can replace the truths of the Catholic Faith as the only foundation of personal and social order, including as the only true foundation for how physicians are to use the gifts that God has given them with wisdom and prudence, understanding the circumstances of each patient and working with a true Catholic priest to see to it that their patients' spiritual needs were met first and foremost.
It is certainly the case that we must take prudent measures to maintain our bodily health. Those of us who are married and have dependent children have more of an obligation in this regard than someone who is older, someone who is widowed, someone without dependent children and/or without others who are dependent upon him for their livelihood or sustenance, both supernatural and natural, in the case of an emergency. Those who are older and who do not have supernatural and/or temporal responsibilities to others do not have the obligation, at least not in most instances, to take use truly extraordinary medical means or to undergo a series of radical treatments, such as chemotherapy, although they are perfectly free to do so.
These are decisions to be made in consultation with a spiritual director or a confessor and with a good Catholic physician, keeping in mind first and foremost the eternal good of one's immortal soul as Catholics of all ages have the obligation to maintain themselves until they have been prepared for their Particular Judgment by means of the reception of the Sacrament of Extreme Unction and by making a good confession, if not a general confession of the sins of his life, prior to the reception of Holy Communion as a Final Viaticum.
We are not, however, to be in a state of panic over what might happen to us if some catastrophic illness overtakes us. We trust in the Providence of God, Who never lets any of us suffer anything without providing us the graces through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother to endure and to be a cause for His own greater honor and glory and for the sanctification and salvation of our own immortal souls.
The obligation of providing for those who cannot care for themselves in times of an illness or an accident rests principally with one's family. Although Barack Hussein Obama extolled the creation of "social security" in the United States of America under the administration of the late thirty-third degree Mason, Franklin Delano Roosevelt,, in 1935, the social security system, which was never meant to be the principal means of support for the elderly retired (remember "Supplemental Security Income"?), has convinced most citizens that they have only a limited obligation to care for their elderly parents--or other relatives who are unable to support themselves because of illness or disability. It is the responsibility of grown children to provide care for their elderly parents when they choose to retire or become sick. And as Catholics are supposed to be open to having as many children as God sees fit to send them, the burden for caring for one's parents in their later years of life is thus shared among those grown children.
As a result of the materialism and hedonism and utilitarianism that have given us contraception and abortion, however, families, even Catholic families, are smaller than they were years ago. It's a relatively easy thing for children who have been brought into the womb by contracepting and aborting parents to be content to see Mom and Pop subjected to the whims of money-making health management organizations or insurance companies or hospitals or, of course, the government itself. They, the grown children, cannot be expected to give up anything to care for their parents or other relatives who are in need.
Moreover, of course, we have lost, according to a statistical extrapolation done by the American Life League a few years ago, over 650,000,000 human beings as a result of contraception and abortion. Although the costs associated with health care would be far less in a Catholic world as most physicians would try to acquit themselves well for each patient as they sought to work for the honor and glory of the Most Blessed Trinity through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, even the burden of the costs that are associated with health care in the world that actually exists at this time would have been eased considerably if only the fifty million children who have been killed as a result of surgical abortion alone in the United States of America had been allowed to live and to thus make their contributions in the world as redeemed creatures who sought always to please Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.
We are poorer as a nation and our problems are greater because of the warfare that has been waged against the innocent preborn by means of contraception and abortion. We are poorer as a nation and as a world as a result of the simple fact that the Protestant Revolt and the rise of the devil's brew of naturalistic ideologies and philosophies associated with and/or closely related to the lodges of Freemasonry have robbed most people in the world of any knowledge of the concept of redemptive suffering, of the need of making reparation for their sins and those of the whole world as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. As the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen used to comment in the 1950s when he passed by hospitals, "All of that wasted suffering."
There can be no discussion of "reforming" a health-care system is founded on one naturalistic lie after another, which is why we must try, wherever it is possible, to obtain care from good Catholic physicians who are aware of the dangers of Big Pharm and who do not recoil in horror when patients discuss homeopathic treatments that proved effective when used by the likes of Saint Hildegard in the Twelfth Century and Blessed Martin de Porres, O.P., in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries, to say nothing of the countless numbers of monks who treated Catholics quite successfully by the use of various herbal treatments.
There are indeed benefits to be derived from many modern medicines and techniques of treatment. Certain types of antibiotics are the only means available to fight serious, life-threatening bodily infections. Granted. As the son of a veterinarian who had a ready supply of tetracycline available whenever I got a sore throat, I know full well the benefits of a "Z-pak" (package of Zithromax tablets). However, it should also be borne in mind that it is not quackery, indeed, far from it, to examine the ways in which Catholics healed for centuries by using natural remedies to prompt the body to heal itself. A good Catholic physician is going to explore all options as he recognizes the benefits of certain pharmaceutical products while at the same time understanding that the pharmaceutical industry exists to make money and that its executives think nothing of using human beings as guinea pigs to help them increase their profit-margins.
The lack of proportion and balance in our health-care system today is the direct result of the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King and the rise of a utilitarian, cost-conscious view of man on the part of many in the health-care industry and of a refusal on the part of many patients to accept the fact of their own mortality and/or their refusal to accept at least a little bit of pain and discomfort as the price of their sanctification and salvation as disciples of that King. Everything is out of proportion and is imbalanced, which is why we on are the precipice in the United States of America of adopting a British style system of government-imposed health-care rationing (as opposed to insurance company health-care rationing) to satisfy the demands of statists to control every aspect of our daily lives and to satisfy the maudlin desires of many patients to be spare every pain and ache imaginable.
Want a glimpse into our future? Here it is:
A young British mother has criticized medical guidelines that, she said, resulted in doctors refusing treatment and leaving her newborn premature son to die. 23 year-old Sarah Capewell told media that her son Jayden, born at 21 weeks and five days gestation, was refused intensive care because he was two days under the limit set by the British government's National Health Service (NHS) rationing guidelines.
Capewell said that her son Jayden cried and lived for two hours before dying in her arms. During that time, his mother took photos of him and pleaded with doctors that he be admitted to the special baby unit at James Paget University Hospital (JPH). Staff at the hospital, in Gorleston, Norfolk, told her that had Jayden been born two days later they would have helped him.
Since her son's death, Capewell has launched an internet campaign to change the guidelines and says that she has received messages of support from around the world.
Health care rationing guidelines set down by the Nuffield Council on Bioethics in 2006 say that intensive care should never be given to babies below 22 weeks gestation, and rarely to those below 23 weeks. In secular bioethics, this is called Futile Care Theory, which holds that in cases where there is no hope for improvement of an incapacitating condition, such as extreme prematurity, no treatment should be offered.
In the case of Sarah Capewell' son, the Nuffeld Council guidance that staff reportedly cited was backed up by advice published by the British Association of Perinatal Medicine (BAPM) last year. The BAPM paper itself, however, does not mandate the refusal of treatment, saying only, "This is not a set of instructions, but a framework to highlight the range of evidence and opinion that needs to be considered by staff and parents."
"The care of the mother, her fetus and the baby, will always need to be individualized and should be led by senior staff in all disciplines. The parents' hopes and expectations need to be explored with honesty and compassion in a realistic way, drawing upon the available evidence."
The BAPM paper says that in cases where children are born before 23 weeks gestation, "it would be considered in the best interests of the baby, and standard practice, for resuscitation not to be carried out." It continues, however, "If the parents wish they should have the opportunity to discuss outcomes with a second senior member of the perinatal team."
But Capewell reports that her wishes were ignored by hospital staff. "When I asked about my baby's human rights," she said, "the attitude of the doctors seemed to be that he did not have any. They said before 22 weeks he was just a fetus."
Under British criminal law, an unborn child can be killed by abortion up to 24 weeks gestation without any cause being stated and up to the time of full gestation if he is suspected of suffering from some disability.
The British national health care rationing body, the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (N.I.C.E.), has plainly stated that such guidelines are based on financial motives, in consideration of how expensive a treatment will be compared to the "quality of life years" it can provide. This is an expression of a new utilitarian trend in the philosophy of medical care that has replaced classical medical ethics in recent decades.
In traditional medical ethics, the governing principle, according to the ancient Hippocratic Oath, is to "do no harm" to the patient. In modern utilitarian bioethics, the guiding principle is to produce "the greatest good for the greatest number," whether that good benefits the patient or not.
Under this principle, which has swept the medical world in most western countries that have adopted government socialized medical care, it is increasingly common for medical guidelines to allow doctors to decide, against a patient's wishes or those of his family, that further medical treatment is "futile" and can be discontinued. In countries such as Britain and Canada, where the provision of food and water are considered "medical treatment," this can mean that a patient can be legally dehydrated to death, often while being placed in permanent sedation.

This is our future. Nothing that the TelePrompTer promoted the animatronics figure known as Barack Hussein Obama to say last evening can change that reality.
Indeed, anyone pretending to "care" about the needs of Americans without health insurance (and we are three Americans without such insurance) but who supports the daily slaughter of the preborn under cover of the civil law as a matter of principle is nothing other than a demagogue, a TelePrompTer demagogue in the case of Barack Hussein Obama.
Consider this remarkably audacious passage from Obama's speech:
That is why we cannot fail. Because there are too many Americans counting on us to succeed – the ones who suffer silently, and the ones who shared their stories with us at town hall meetings, in emails, and in letters.
I received one of those letters a few days ago. It was from our beloved friend and colleague, Ted Kennedy. He had written it back in May, shortly after he was told that his illness was terminal. He asked that it be delivered upon his death.
In it, he spoke about what a happy time his last months were, thanks to the love and support of family and friends, his wife, Vicki, and his children, who are here tonight . And he expressed confidence that this would be the year that health care reform – "that great unfinished business of our society," he called it – would finally pass. He repeated the truth that health care is decisive for our future prosperity, but he also reminded me that "it concerns more than material things." "What we face," he wrote, "is above all a moral issue; at stake are not just the details of policy, but fundamental principles of social justice and the character of our country."
I've thought about that phrase quite a bit in recent days – the character of our country. One of the unique and wonderful things about America has always been our self-reliance, our rugged individualism, our fierce defense of freedom and our healthy skepticism of government. And figuring out the appropriate size and role of government has always been a source of rigorous and sometimes angry debate.
For some of Ted Kennedy's critics, his brand of liberalism represented an affront to American liberty. In their mind, his passion for universal health care was nothing more than a passion for big government.
But those of us who knew Teddy and worked with him here – people of both parties – know that what drove him was something more. His friend, Orrin Hatch, knows that. They worked together to provide children with health insurance. His friend John McCain knows that. They worked together on a Patient's Bill of Rights. His friend Chuck Grassley knows that. They worked together to provide health care to children with disabilities.
On issues like these, Ted Kennedy's passion was born not of some rigid ideology, but of his own experience. It was the experience of having two children stricken with cancer. He never forgot the sheer terror and helplessness that any parent feels when a child is badly sick; and he was able to imagine what it must be like for those without insurance; what it would be like to have to say to a wife or a child or an aging parent – there is something that could make you better, but I just can't afford it.
That large-heartedness – that concern and regard for the plight of others – is not a partisan feeling. It is not a Republican or a Democratic feeling. It, too, is part of the American character. Our ability to stand in other people's shoes. A recognition that we are all in this together; that when fortune turns against one of us, others are there to lend a helping hand. A belief that in this country, hard work and responsibility should be rewarded by some measure of security and fair play; and an acknowledgement that sometimes government has to step in to help deliver on that promise. (Page 7 of the Text of Obama's speech to Congress, The New York Times )
Let me make the words shouted by United States Representative Joe Wilson (R-South Carolina) to Obama last evening during the middle of the president's speech my own: "YOU LIE!"
With or without the use of "direct" Federal funds to kill babies in a government "reform" of the health-care industry, the fact remains that private insurance companies fund the deaths of innocent preborn babies in this country and that government funds will help to reimburse those insurance companies. Although you will not see me quoting too many officials from the United States Conference of "Catholic" "Bishops," facts are facts, and the facts stated by Richard Doerflinger of that conference speak for themselves concerning one of the amendments pending in the United States House of Representatives about ObamaCare:
"The government will REQUIRE that everyone taking the public health plan pays for this abortion coverage; and since those premium dollars will be paid to the government agency managing the plan, which will then turn those funds over to abortionists, this will be government funding of abortion. Calling it a premium rather than a tax makes no difference at all to the moral issue -- in fact, people who are forced to pay this abortion premium can be sure that this particular money of theirs will be used by the government to fund abortions and ONLY abortions, a situation not found in the usual taxpayer scenario." (From: Richard Doerflinger Re: Summary of Current Amendments)
Obama thus lied when he said that abortions will not be funded by Federal taxpayer monies in his "reform" of the health-care industry. They will.
The character of our country? A country that can permit pharmaceutical companies to manufacture poison pills and devices to prevent the contraception and/or to kill innocent preborn babies has no right to speak of having a national character worthy of emulation. A country where over four thousand innocent babies are cruelly butchered by means of surgical abortion every day has no right to speak of having a national character worthy of emulation. A country where people are consumed with materialistic and hedonistic pursuits wantonly and unrepentantly as they look at every problem in their own lives and in the world naturalistically has no right ot speak of having a national character worthy of emulation.
Large-heartedness? Where is the the large-heartedness for the preborn?
Concern and regard for the plight of others? Where is the concern and regard for the plight of the preborn?
Our ability to stand in other people's shoes? Want to trade places, Mr. President, with a child in the womb who is about to be suctioned to death or burned to death or carved to death in his mothers' womb? Our ability to stand in other people's shoes?
Barack Hussein Obama and the late Edward Moore Kennedy were as one in the United States Senate in ignoring the plight of the preborn as they undertook measures to assure their assassination in their mothers' wombs under cover of the civil law. Barack Hussein Obama in life is one with Edward Moore Kennedy in death in ignoring the plight of the preborn as the former exploits the latter's death to advance the most massive experiment in social engineering in a country that has been engaged in such engineering ever since Father Pierre Jean De Smet, S.J., was more or less forced out of his position with the American Indian Bureau in the Nineteenth Century and Indian reservations were turned in massive laboratories of government controlled social engineering at the expense of the conquered tribes.
Edward Moore Kennedy continues to spit on the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law in death as he did in life. Barack Hussein Obama, the Marxist-trained pro-abort who cannot speak coherently, at least for the most part, unless he is in front of the TelePrompTer wants to "succeed" where William Jefferson Blythe Clinton failed. Neither Kennedy during his misspent life or Obama now understand the truth of these words of the late Silvio Cardinal Antoniano, quoted by Pope Pius XI in Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929:
The more closely the temporal power of a nation aligns itself with the spiritual, and the more it fosters and promotes the latter, by so much the more it contributes to the conservation of the commonwealth. For it is the aim of the ecclesiastical authority by the use of spiritual means, to form good Christians in accordance with its own particular end and object; and in doing this it helps at the same time to form good citizens, and prepares them to meet their obligations as members of a civil society. This follows of necessity because in the City of God, the Holy Roman Catholic Church, a good citizen and an upright man are absolutely one and the same thing. How grave therefore is the error of those who separate things so closely united, and who think that they can produce good citizens by ways and methods other than those which make for the formation of good Christians. For, let human prudence say what it likes and reason as it pleases, it is impossible to produce true temporal peace and tranquillity by things repugnant or opposed to the peace and happiness of eternity.
The government only has a subsidiary role to play in the provision of the care to those who cannot care for themselves, principally by means of subsidizing the care provided to the poor or the dependent by legitimate Catholic charitable organizations (not the "Catholic Charities" or the so-called "Catholic Campaign for Human Development" associated with the counterfeit church of conciliarism). A civil state organized according to the truths of the Catholic Faith would be composed of officials, whether elected or appointed as the case may be, who would seek to be faithful to the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law, and thus any and all care provided in the case of dire necessity by a government agency would come, of course, as a last resort and for as limited a time a possible and would be administered solely according to the dictates of Catholic moral teaching and nothing else.
No one in his right mind can assert that such a situation obtains today.
No one in his right man can assert that Barack Hussein Obama has--even on the level of pure pragmatic details--provided a rational or credible explanation as to how he is going to pay for his massive government take-over of the health-care industry without bankrupting Americans for generations to come and without thereby limiting the legitimate liberties of citizens in full violation of the Natural Law principle of subsidiarity as we are made more and more the wards of the minions, most unelected, of the civil state.
What are we to do?
Pray! Praying is not "doing nothing." Only naturalists--or those Catholics possessed of naturalistic mentality--can contend that praying is "doing nothing." Pray, pray, pray. Pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.
As I have been trying to emphasize on this site, we are in the midst of a Chastisement. Although it is certainly true that there are anti-Incarnational forces in the world that have been at work since the the time of the Renaissance and the Protestant Revolt to create the modern civil state and its horrors, it is also true that the warfare against the Deposit of Faith waged by Modernists in the counterfeit church of concilairism, especially against the honor and glory and majesty of God by means of assaulting the First and Second Commandments (a current such effort has taken place in Krakow, Poland, in recent days and will be the subject of the next commentary on this site), have made it more possible for the statists to be given a hearing by Catholics who have had their souls doubly deformed--both by the naturalistic lies of Modernity and by the insidious doctrinal and liturgical lies of Modernism.
The way out of this mess runs solely through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We are eyewitnesses to the spread of the errors of Russia before our very eyes. How can anyone deny this fact? Our Lady really, really meant what she told Jacinta and Francisco Marto and Lucia dos Santos in the Cova da Iria on July 13, 1917:
"You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end; but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father.
"To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.
As we pray for the conversion of our public officials and of our own nation to the true Faith, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order, let us always remember to lift high the Cross in our own lives and to bear our sufferings with joy and gratitude, recognizing that these words of Pope Saint Pius X, contained in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910, are description of the likes of Barack Hussein Obama and the man who "blessed" him and all his "work" two months ago today, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, and a prophetic call to use to be unceasing in our efforts to restore the Catholic City:
Moreover, since in the clash of interests, and especially in the struggle against dishonest forces, the virtue of man, and even his holiness are not always sufficient to guarantee him his daily bread, and since social structures, through their natural interplay, ought to be devised to thwart the efforts of the unscrupulous and enable all men of good will to attain their legitimate share of temporal happiness, We earnestly desire that you should take an active part in the organization of society with this objective in mind. And, to this end, whilst your priests will zealously devote efforts to the sanctification of souls, to the defense of the Church, and also to works of charity in the strict sense, you shall select a few of them, level-headed and of active disposition, holders of Doctors’ degrees in philosophy and theology, thoroughly acquainted with the history of ancient and modern civilizations, and you shall set them to the not-so-lofty but more practical study of the social science so that you may place them at the opportune time at the helm of your works of Catholic action. However, let not these priests be misled, in the maze of current opinions, by the miracles of a false Democracy. Let them not borrow from the Rhetoric of the worst enemies of the Church and of the people, the high-flown phrases, full of promises; which are as high-sounding as unattainable. Let them be convinced that the social question and social science did not arise only yesterday; that the Church and the State, at all times and in happy concert, have raised up fruitful organizations to this end; that the Church, which has never betrayed the happiness of the people by consenting to dubious alliances, does not have to free herself from the past; that all that is needed is to take up again, with the help of the true workers for a social restoration, the organisms which the Revolution shattered, and to adapt them, in the same Christian spirit that inspired them, to the new environment arising from the material development of today’s society. Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists.
We know well that they flatter themselves with the idea of raising human dignity and the discredited condition of the working class. We know that they wish to render just and perfect the labor laws and the relations between employers and employees, thus causing a more complete justice and a greater measure of charity to prevail upon earth, and causing also a profound and fruitful transformation in society by which mankind would make an undreamed-of progress. Certainly, We do not blame these efforts; they would be excellent in every respect if the Sillonist did not forget that a person’s progress consists in developing his natural abilities by fresh motivations; that it consists also in permitting these motivations to operate within the frame of, and in conformity with, the laws of human nature. But, on the contrary, by ignoring the laws governing human nature and by breaking the bounds within which they operate, the human person is lead, not toward progress, but towards death. 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.
Care to disagree with Pope Saint Pius X? Barack Hussein Obama and Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI do. Do you?
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
