Italian Family Minister: “The Family is Under Attack. They Want to Dominate Us and Cancel Our People”

Edit; we were sent this link by a twitter follower. Here is a google translate with some editing. We don’t think that Corriere Della Sera is too happy with this heroic Catholic’s point of view.

"The natural family is under attack. They want to dominate us and cancel our people." The new minister for the Family and Disability, Lorenzo Fontana declared this in 2016, as stated on his website.

[Corriere Della Sera] At the conference of the Pro Vita Onlus association held in Verona, he explained that "on the one hand the weakening of the family and the fight for gay marriage and the teaching of gender theory in schools, on the other the mass immigration that we undergo and the simultaneous emigration of our young people abroad. These are all related and interdependent issues, because these factors aim to erase our community and our traditions. The risk is the cancellation of our people.” The example to follow is Russia: "If thirty years ago Russia, under the Communist, materialistic and internationalist yoke, was the farthest imaginable from the ideas of identity and defense of the family and tradition, but today it is the model for those who believe in an identity model of society.”

The 38-year-old minister of the new government of the League and Movement 5 Stars, former vice-secretary of the Northern League who describes himself as "Veronese and Catholic" on Twitter, in March 2017 defined "the order of the Court of Appeal of Trento on double paternity (a law which recognizes that a child can have two fathers), a defeat for society ».

At the end of May he participated in the March for the Life of Rome to support the abrogation of the law 194 on abortion with the cry of "abortion is the leading cause of femicide in the world".

A graduate in Political Science, he particularly cares about the demographic theme: "Politics must take care of the family, we can not waste any more time. Children are the investment of the future. Every year it is as if we lost a city the size of Padua, the demographic decline is comparable to that caused between 1918 and 1920 by Spanish fever,” he said in an interview. In January, again on the same subject, the former prime minister, Paolo Gentiloni, commented: "For the outgoing Council President, the aging Europe needs migrants; for us, aging Europe needs to generate new children".

If Macron is Elected France is Over

Edit: this from Galliawatch and Salon Beige:

Three tweets from Emmanuel Macron on immigration, subsidized housing, and naturalization:

1 - I want to create a highway of freedom and responsibility that crosses Africa into Europe.

2 - From the beginning of my five-year mandate, I want to create very social housing on a massive scale using simplified procedures.

3 - I will not promise foreigners the right to vote. The correct answer to the right to vote is access to nationality.

Every Third Muslim in France Fits a "Radical Profile"

Islamization of France
(Paris) One in three Muslims in France have a "radical profile". This is the result of an IFOP study yesterday published in Le Journal du Dimanche. Thus, there is in France between two and three million "radical Muslims".

In France  there lives, followed by the Federal Republic of Germany, the largest Islamic community in the West.The exact number of Muslims is not known, since the state does not perform a census of religious affiliation. This was abolished in the wake of mass immigration to - as critics claim -  to make less visible the the remodeling of the population. For this reason, there are different estimates. Islamic organizations say there are between 6-9 million Muslims. Government and politicians tend to downplay the number. The study itself incomprehensibly points to 3-4 million Muslims. The assumed "consensus" until recently, is that there are five million Muslims in France, is regarded by experts as outdated.
The study firmly represents a radicalization trend among young Muslims. The group of "radical Muslims" is relatively young. 84 percent are under 50. Their average age amounts to 35.8 years. The lesson is: the younger, the more radical. The re-Islamization is also a generational issue.
The authors of the study emphasize the "successful integration" of a "majority" of Muslims. The "radical" third is to some extent an inevitable byproduct. Despite this "politically correct" interpretation, the study reveals worrying findings.
Around 50 percent of Muslims living in France today were born in France and therefore are French citizens by birth. Overall, 74 percent of all Muslims living in France have French citizenship. For 66 percent of them, Islam plays an important role.
According to the study, the younger generation of Muslims follow the Islamic rites and rules more stringently and fervently than the older generation. The polling firm IFOP interviewed 1,029 Muslims about Islam, from the veiling of women and halal food.
28 percent were in favor of polygamy and the actual complete veiling for women.
Especially high is the proportion of radicals among young Muslims. 70 percent of young women are to wear the headscarf, 28 percent for the full-body veiling. Among the young, male Muslims, they are 58 and 20 percent respectively.
According to the study, one third attends Friday prayers in the mosque, another third on special feast days, one-third do not go to the mosque.

After 50 Years of Liberal Church Management: 36 of 110 Churches of Brussels Will be Closed

36 of 110 Churches of Brussels shall soon be closed: The fate of
St. Nicholas (left) and Our Lady of Zavel are not certain.
(Brussels) In Brussels, capital of Belgium, 36 out of 110 Catholic churches will soon be closed and sold. The change in Archbishop also brought a change of direction back to "structural reforms" instead of spiritual renewal. It is the sad result of a homemade, progressive decline.

Brussels is also the headquarters of the European Union. The leftist city government majority in the municipal council consists of one third Muslims. These are two aspects that provide explanations for this unprecedented decline. Another key aspect is the decades-long line of liberal archbishops in the Archdiocese.

Cardinal Danneel's restructuring plans

Yet in 2010 there was a turning point: Archbishop André-Joseph Léonard tried as archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels, certainly with recognizable success, to revive by the establishment and promotion of a small but faithful group in some churches that had been devastated for decades by his predecessor, Cardinal Godfried Danneels (Archbishop 1980-2010, Cardinal since 1983) which were already threatened of being put up for sale. Léonard's term of only five years, however, was too short. In addition, this churchman who fought in Europe's front line, received neither the necessary encouragement nor the necessary support.

Although Brussels has traditionally been linked to the dignity of cardinal, he was not granted it by Benedict XVI. not out of a false consideration for Danneels who was not yet 80 years old. Pope Francis did not even think to dream of it, to give a "Ratzingerian" like Léonard, the declared object of hatred of Francis-friend Danneels, the purple dignity. So Léonard's days were numbered.

On November 6, 2015, he was retired by Francis. With Jozef De Kesel, a Danneels man was named as the new archbishop, who quicly moved away from Léonard's restoration efforts and returned to the closure and sale policy of Danneels. Houses of worship would be sold off for little money. According to the plans of Archbishop De Kesel, newly established in his post on December 12, 2015 soon, there would be 36 of 110 churches closed in the "capital" of Europe. There has been no comparable action by the Church in all of its History in a European capital.

Archbishop De Kesel made his plans known in 2005

The daily newspaper La Libre published the plans with two articles. This did not only disturb the peace of Belgian Catholics. The question touches on other places of European catholicity in addition to Belgium, which are in the post-conciliar decline.

The third Christian millennium began with Cardinal Danneel's "restructuring plans". The conveyance and merging of parishes were central keywords that were given concrete shape from 2005 onwards. Jozef De Kesel was then Episcopal Vicar for the Vicariate Brussels, one of the three vicariates of the Archdiocese. It was De Kesel who announced the plans for the "future" of parishes in 2005. They were based on two considerations: as the number of Catholics decline, the number of parishes was greater than the demand, and especially greater than the funds; in addition, the high number of parishes of our Church does not fit the "multireligious and multicultural" dimension "of our modern society." It's a common choice of words to disguise Islamization. In Brussels there are more practicing Muslims than Catholics. The first name Mohammed has lead for several years on the list of newborn boys. Yet the theme of Islamization is politically undesirable among the dominant forces and must therefore must not be addressed. The same applies to the disintegration of the Catholic community through immigration into many small, independent, ethnic communities. Even immigration coming from Catholic sources has brought fragmentation rather than unity.

Current situation

 The Kingdom of Belgium is a historical artifact in a linguistic-cultural space in transition. Since Germany, the Netherlands and France have territorial claims on the region, the great powers created it in 1830 from the former Austrian-Netherlands into a separate state in order not to disturb the balance of power. The inner layer is linguistically therefore, somewhat more complex than in other European countries, and this includes Church organization.

In the area of Brussels, there are 107 parishes which employ 250 priests. 11 pastoral units are Dutch-speaking (Flemish), 25 pastoral units are French (Walloons). Plus, there are 42 different foreign-language communities. All of these parishes, units and communities are summarized in four deaneries. According to information of the weekly magazine Tempi  36 pastoral parish units will be dissolved and at least one church be closed.

This does not mean that all churches are to be profaned immediately. But it is to say that all church activities such as baptisms, first communions, confirmations, catecheses are discontinued. The profanation and the sale are the next step. The first article of Le Libre last March 22 was like a shock to the faithful.

Churches as an object of speculation?

Some parishes are hard to keep. There is a lack of faithful and the funds are scarce among Brussels Catholics. The radical deforestation leaves the faithful in fear that even vibrant parishes could fall under the bureaucrat's wheels when their churches located in "interesting" parts of the city are set aside for real estate speculation. Among the seven criteria for the conveyance of parishes is the term "urban projects."

Above all, the faithful do not understand why parishes are to be dissolved, although there are enough priests to look after them.

The pastor of a small parish that is to be abandoned, asked not to close the church, but to leave it to the Polish community which still lacks their own church. The proposal was rejected.

According to La Libre there is no definite decision which parishes are to be closed. In the near future a meeting between a group of concerned Catholics and the reigning Episcopal Vicar for Brussels, Jean Kockerols, is to take place.

New Archbishop De Kesel has Introduced His Closure Plan Again

The big "remodeling" of the Catholic Church in Brussels, which had been put in the drawer by Archbishop Léonard, had once again been put on the table as soon as De Kesel took over the office as Archbishop. De Kesel announced the "reconstruction" in his pastoral letter of 2005. Cardinal Danneels wanted De Kesel to be installed as his successor in 2010. That was rejected by Benedict XVI. who gave the assignment to Léonard, the then Bishop of Namur, with the attempt to at revival. With the election of Pope Francis, however, in which Cardinal Danneels as a member of Team Bergoglio and the secret circle Sankt Gallen is again operational, the chapter of Léonard and Benedict XVI. for the Belgian church came to an end faster than expected.

Soon numerous Brussels churches are being offered on the real estate market for sale. It's a sad highlight in the decline of the self-adulating conciliar Church which says there is "no alternative." .

Pope Says Arab Invasion is Real

Edit: Here's the excerpt from Rorate:

"The only continent that can bring about a certain unity to the world is Europe," the Pope adds. "China has perhaps a more ancient, deeper, culture. But only Europe has a vocation towards universality and service." ... "If Europe wants to rejuvenate, it is necessary for it to find anew its cultural roots. Of all Western countries, the European roots are the strongest and deepest. By the way of colonization, these roots even reached the New World. But, by forgetting its history, Europe weakens itself. It is then that it risks becoming an empty place."

[La Vie:] Europe, an empty place? The expression is strong. ... Because in the history of civilizations, emptiness always calls fullness to itself. Incidentally, the Pope becomes clinical [in his diagnosis]:

"We can speak today of an Arab invasion. It is a social fact." ... "How many invasions Europe has known throughout its history! It has always known how to overcome itself, moving forward to find itself as if made greater by the exchange between cultures."

The 68 Revolution and Its Consequences: The Year of 1968 Had the Fewest Children

The 1968 Revolution, the German People and Empty Cradles
(Berlin) statisticians and demographers have calculated: "The year 1968 had the least children." This was announced in Die Welt  in an edition from last week. 1968 is regarded as the crucial "year of change", the significant outcome of this year made  the world today is as it is. With the left-wing student protests of May 1968, the long-term profound cultural, political and economic changes were introduced. Three significant consequences are the demographic collapse, mass immigration and the weighty church crisis. It was then that the decisive year took on a more significant prominence, for  1968 became  the year in which  women have borne the least children. It's a fact of a symbolic nature. 
The following considerations relate to the Federal Republic of Germany, but also apply to the other German-speaking countries and more or less include  other Western European countries.

Collapse of Diocesan Clergy in France -- Glimmers of Hope

(Paris) numbers are neither traditionalist nor modernist, but facts are being noticed.  In France, there are only 14,000 diocesan priests. About half of them are older than 75. This means that the situation is dramatic.
To conduct but one parish is  already a big job. In France it has become "normal" that a pastor has to take care of a dozen parishes. A regular celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is impossible. In most parishes  it is celebrated only occasionally. In the diocese of Langres, each priest must take care for an average of 50 parishes.  In short, it is almost resigned to a spiritual catastrophe. The numbers of priestly ordinations is also discouraging. In 2009, only 89 diocesan priests were ordained in France. Far too little to compensate for the decrease due to death. These numbers seem like reports coming from the front with the losses to an army. You could cry.
Fortunately, there is good and encouraging news coming from the seminaries of tradition. The traditional communities and dioceses have offspring. More, their seminars are full. It is therefore to be hoped that more old rite seminaries  will be opened. There is no danger that they remain empty, since there is a strong interest in tradition by young believers.

Continued in St. Paul: Church of St. John's Gutted and Handed Over to Muslims

Mehmet IV Entering Hagia Sofia 1453

Whether unarmed or well-equipped, march on and fight for the cause of Allah, with your wealth and your persons. - 9:41

Edit: we'd reported on this in early June of this year when it happened.  St. John's was a fairly conservative presence in the Archdiocese.  Now it will be turned into a Mosque, it's cross hacked off its spire, to be replaced by the hateful symbol of Mohamedism.

This is something which should send a chill over those of us who are Europeans, because this is one of those symbolic events that accompanied the Muslim conquest of our cities.

It's unclear what's happened to rererdos, the portion behind and around the altar, but some men from another parish have come to take away the volks altar (Cramner Table), the altar in front of the reredos, but the confessionals have already been thrown into a dumpster.

There are many photos

Archdiocese Selling Historic Church to Muslims?

Update 19:26 GMT:  the sale has been confirmed by the listing agent, but the Archdiocese refuses to discuss it. City Council Member Kathy Lantry also confirms this:

I am writing to let you know that we have a Purchase Agreement on the Church of St. John's in Dayton' Bluff. The buyer intends to use the church for an Islamic worship center and the house as residency for the minister. They have no intended use for the school at this time.

Edit: it's a church that was active on St. Paul's East Side for 127  years when its pastor, Father George Welzbacher said its last Mass.  It's been a part of home, of homeland,  a consolation and a source of learning for generations of Americans, students, parishioners, pastors and the people of the neighborhood.    It was one of the more conservative parishes in the Archdiocese.  Soon, it will be another conquest by advancing militant Islam.

Now it looks like it's being sold to Muslims.  The asking price is less than a million dollars, which seems a bit on the cheap side.  We're contacting the Archdiocese, but haven't heard anything yet.

Listing here.

Thanks to liberal immigration policies, the streets are teaming with Muslims and their increasingly visible presence is taking advantage of the continuing decline of Christianity.

And don't ask where we got the information.

Holland's Bishops in Rome -- Holland's "Progressive" Direction "Manifesto" to Pope Francis

(Amsterdam) There are rumors on the progressive wing of the Catholic Church in the German speaking nations, that the Lower German Dutch are to be added. From theologians Manifesto "We want women Cardinals" about the uprising German Bishops and Ordinaries against the indissolubility of the marriage sacrament, on the demand for priestesses by the new President of the Superior Conference of Male Religious Communities in Austria, is immediately seconded by the President of the Association of Women's Orders of Austria to the memorandum Cologne Catholics for an anti-Meisner as the next Archbishop of Cologne, the bandwidth registers nervous twitches. The latter demand is reminiscent of the desire for an anti-Benedict XVI. as the new Pope. The bishops of the Netherlands are on an ad limina visit to Rome. These progressive groups have written a "manifesto" to Pope Francis, in which they make statements of support for the new head of the Church as a "defender" of the Church and of the Church's heritage. However, the ulterior motives are different.

Archbishop Criticizes Gender Ideology: "Direct Path to Self-Destruction"

(Warsaw) Polish bishop finds clear words against the gender ideology and is showered with insults from anticlerical circles. The gender ideology is the "direct path to the self-destruction of our civilization."

The Polish Archbishop Marek Jedraszewski of Lodz defended the differences and complementarity of man and woman at a meeting with young people. The Archbishop tried to reject the attempt to flatten "the great and unique differences between man and woman that God thought of so wonderfully."

"2050 Whites Will be Put on Reservations": "They are planning that they will cease to exist of their own desire."

The archbishop said he could well imagine if the gender ideology should prevail, that "the few who continue to hold to the fact that man and woman are indeed equal as human beings and are fully equal in dignity, but have a different sex, and that's a good thing, will be put as Indians are in reservations by 2050." Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski is known for his vivid and clear language. He told young people at a youth catechesis in Pabianice near Lodz about the importance of accepting one's own gender and to defy every misanthropic egalitarianism.

Gender ideology is an "extremely dangerous ideology"

The former theology professor had put the gender ideology at the heart of his speech, "which has become fashionable in recent years. To be exact, it's the only valid ideology according to political correctness," said the Archbishop. The gender ideology is an attack against "gender identity" of man as male and female and for an attack against the family and the generation of children. "It is an extremely dangerous ideology that leads directly to the death of our civilization," said Msgr Jędraszewski. He could therefore imagine, if he also hopes not to experience it personally, that the few surviving whites, the smallest of the other races here in Europe will be presented as a sensation in 2050. "Behold how the people looked, who once lived there and those who have ceased existing at their own request, because they did not accept themselves biologically." The problem is mainly a problem for Europeans and thus it is also to be found in North America and Australia.

"After Us,  May Come  the Deluge" By Gender Ideology

The denial of God is unmistakable behind the gender ideology, and it is the base engine of this "ideology of self-destruction." For it is God who "created man as man and woman," said Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski. "He created them for a life together, not that each go his way, and not for homosexuality, but for the second unit, for marriage, so that they beget children, continue to give life and rule the world. Then perhaps the deluge might come after us," said the archbishop.

The speech by Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski of Lodz led to savage attacks against Church representatives. Anti-Church papers shower him with criticism and personal attacks. Considering the reception of what the Archbishop says, the Metropolitan had obviously hit the mark.

Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski was born in 1949 in Poznan. After his consecration, he worked in pastoral ministry and as a professor of theology. In 1997 Pope John Paul II appointed him auxiliary bishop of Poznan. In 2012 he was made Archbishop of Lodz by Pope Benedict XVI.

After "Aberromarriage" Polygamy Follows in the Netherlands

(The Hague), the first case of polygamy was officially recognized in Europe last Friday. Victor de Brujin (46) married civilly Bianca (31) and Mirjan (35) with a wedding ceremony that took place in front of the notary, who registered the tripartite relationship, the Brussels Journal reported. The terms "marriage", "marry", "civil marriage", "betrothal"  are (still) not in force of law, but in substance.
"I love both Bianca and Mirjam, so I  married both," explained the twice newlywed. Victor de Brujin was already married to Bianca. Two and a half years ago, he got to know  Miriam Geven also through the internet. Two months later, Miriam left her husband to move in to Victor - and on Bianca.
"A marriage between three persons is not possible in the Netherlands, but it is already a registered partnership," said Victor. Finally, a modern society is flexible and inventive, even between Groningen and Zeeland.
"We went to the notary, all in wedding clothes and have exchanged each other's rings," said Victor, which is of course not difficult to assert that it didn't mean "just a normal marriage" for him.
The Netherlands and Belgium are the first European states that  introduced "gay marriage" to complete legal equality, and thus opened the way for legal forms that are different from marriage between a man and a woman. Polygamy is a "logical" consequence, from which more will follow. At least when it comes to a relativistic society shaped like that of the Netherlands, in which less than half of the population belongs to a religious community and only 40 percent are recognized as Christians.

Fans of Conservative Catholic Blogs Sack US Catholic Poll on Vatican II

We're Avid US Catholic Readers!

Edit: because a large number of non-subscribers participated in a US "Catholic" poll about Vatican II, the results were not quite what the editors were looking for, we think. The difference was striking.  It seems that several popular Catholic blogs encouraged their readers to vote, and US Catholic decided not to include some 1650 votes in their final analysis as to whether or not Vatican II was a  success.  Of course, according to the 350 readers who were formed by US Catholic, the Church was in great shape and, ironically, a lot bigger than it would have been otherwise.  (No small thanks to US Catholic)

It didn't take long to figure out who at least one conservative blog was.

It reminds one of accounts of how the Japanese high command would use wargames to plan out their military exercises during WW II not so much as objective attempts to assess the relative capabilities of both sides, including logistics problems, but was primarily conceived of as a propaganda tool to build consensus among the naval commanders. High Command aimed to skew results in the course of play even, to reflect the most hopeful outcome.

US Catholic skews its own poll results to obtain an unrealistic appraisal of Vatican II by chopping non-subscribers out of the results.

Interestingly, US Catholic's results show that most of its readers were born before 1950, since most of them were attending High School when Vatican II took place in 1962 - 1965.

Obviously, there is a lot more enthusiasm for Vatican II among the older readership of the moribund US Catholic than there is among the presumably younger, conservative 1650 or so blog readers who participated in the poll with humorous results.

Which points to another thing.  It seems that conservative Catholics are not only more fervent and certain of victory, but more numerous as well.

While US Catholic faithfully acknowledged the participation of non-subscribers and the polarity which exists in the Church, it continued its article considering the results only of its readers as if the poll numbers reflected the overall perception of Catholic participants who took the poll in the first place. It was somewhat confusing if not blatantly dishonest.

Actually, what we assume are the subscriber poll numbers show a blissful ignorance of the actual situation of the Church after Vatican II, as well as a buoyant expectation of the future, despite all indicators to the contrary.
Another significant change since 2005 is the way U.S. Catholic conducts its reader surveys. Once collected only through questionnaires mailed to subscribers, the admittedly unscientific survey is now open to anyone who wishes to respond at More than 2,000 Catholics took the survey, about 350 of whom are subscribers to the magazine. Many responses, however, came after conservative Catholic bloggers encouraged their readers to complete the survey.
When non-subscribers are included, the number who think Vatican II is “the best thing that’s happened to the church in centuries” dips from 74 percent to 37 percent. Among subscribers, 81 percent think the church needs to go farther or get back on track with the reforms. But among all respondents, 52 percent say the church went too far.
The divide among respondents reflects a growing polarity in the church—one that was predicted and feared by U.S. Catholic readers in 2005. But both groups share a knowledge of and passion for the church. Eighty-six percent of subscribers and website visitors have read at least one document from Vatican II. Only a handful of respondents said Vatican II was “ancient history” or had no opinion of it.

Cardinal Meisner Oversteps Mandate: Condemns the SSPX

He excommunicates his own people:  "Whoever rejects completely or partly doctrinal statements, can not be in full communion with the Church".
Joachim Kardinal Meisner
Pressebild Erzbistum Köln

(  The Society of St. Pius X is schismatic.

This nonsense is maintained by the Neoconservative laissez-faire Cardinal Joachim Meisner of Cologne on his website ''.

The Neoconservative Prince of the Church, who allows Old Liberals to do as they please, has shown himself  to be a bitter enemy of the Society.

Second Vatican Council:  "Abortion is a horrible crime"

In his Diocese the Cardinal lets the Devil dance.

So does the aid agency 'Caritas' which is under his supervision, link to the Nazi founded anti-Church child murdering chain 'pro familia', despite numerous protests.

'Caritas Cologne' propagates its gender madness and would like that children live in abnormal sexual role models.

The Catholic pregnancy counselor of the Archdiocese of Cologne  sends pregnant mothers to advice counseling, which issues death certificates for child slaughter.

From Cardinal Meisner's own people, there is no demand of the acceptance of the statement of the Second Vatican Council that abortion is a "horrible crime".

Stupid statements and completely out of the question

The text of the Cardinal consists of bowing and scraping to the Pope and various problems against the Society of St. Pius X.

Benedict XVI. has experienced a setback, he winced:  "Only think of the stupid and completely unacceptable statements of Bishop Williamson."

It is related to a legitimate historical request, which hasn't received till today an answer.

Yet he still has no problems collaborating with an Old Nazi organization like 'pro familia'.

Did Christ not Die For the Jews?

The Holy Father has "always made it clear" that the Society must unmistakably accept the Magisterium -- writes Cardinal Meisner of the Pope.

The recognition of the Magisterium contains acceptance of all of the Councils.

To that belongs -- the magisterially sparsely binding -- Decree 'Nostra Aetate' on the relationship of churches to non-Christian religions.

This is distorted today by the supporters of Cardinal Meisner in a distorted anti-Semitic meaning related to the Jews , that Christ did not die for the Jews.

Vague Allegations

Cardinal Meisner complains that the Society should withdraw its "criticism of the Holy Father.

They have -- supposedly -- said, that the Pope is "not right believing".

It is completely unclear what the Cardinal is accusing the Society of doing.

Dusted off the schism club tucked away before the Council

The Prince of the Church even had the insolence to project things which are really applicable only to the Conciliar Church of German, onto the true believing Society.

"Whoever rejects partially or completely the doctrinal expressions of the Council,  can not have complete communion with the Church."

Cardinal Meisner's unjust condemnation against the Society is in reality a break with the Conciliar Church.

Conciliar Church without a Future

They remain "thus they are suspended and continue as a schismatic group along with their bishops" - rants the Cardinal, but has nothing to say about the gay-friendly Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki of Berlin.

 The state of the Brotherhood will only change when they fully recognize the "Second Vatican Council" fully, including its decrees on religious freedom, the relationship with the Jews and the currently valid form of the Liturgy of the Catholic Church."

 The problem is that before that happens, the dogmatically unbinding Pastoral Council, together with the Conciliar Church, will be long since piled up on the trash heap of history.

80 Percent of German Catholics no Longer Believe in God

Edit: sounds like Germany has more serious problems than the SSPX.

If it is the case that  80 percent of all German Catholics no longer believe in a personal God, then the alarm bells should be ringing.  Or if it can be said that 70 percent of Christians in Germany no longer believe in the Resurrection of the dead, then these alarm bells are ringing shrilly."  Bishop William Schramle said that he is duly concerned more women in service of the church, but are denied n interview with the 'Passauer Neuen Presse'.   The expression about the alarm bells is a euphemism.  That is closer to a declaration of bankruptcy, when one considers above all, that a remaining 20 percent remaining also do not believe in the entirety of Catholic teaching.

Furthermore Bishof Schraml is eager to include more women in the service of the Church, but forbids their admission into the sacramental offices.  He even had the courage to use the word apostasy in refererence to Hans  Küng's proposals for priestless Eucharists -- and saying the words of consecration together.

Is San Francisco Poisonous to Children?

Editor: Despite one person mentioning that their neighborhood was a little dicey, most people were talking about the expensive real-estate in the city.  Despite the government's best efforts, people with families are leaving the city.  Not sure what the reason could be, but is it possible that San Francisco is poisonous to children? It's definitely becoming a world without children.

One of San Francisco's Top Cops

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Despite efforts by officials to keep families in San Francisco, the percentage of children that make up the city’s population continues to decline.

U.S. Census Bureau figures show that just over 13 percent of the city’s residents are younger than 18.
That’s not only a drop from 1970 when 22 percent of San Francisco’s population was younger than 18, but it’s also one of the smallest percentages of children in the country.
