Decadent Pastor Still Endorses Gomorrist Parade

Edit: in view of the day’s recent news at Lifesite, regarding the spread of HIV, the decadent pastor of a Minneapolis parish endorses moral evil and does so during a rally conceived to adulate the evils of sodomy, while seeking to impose legislation which ultimately punishes those who oppose it in any way.

The individuals associated with this event were particularly exultant, and the highly visible parish where this event takes place wasn’t so much a beacon, as a siren, luring men to destruction. This lavender Basilica has been a problem for ages. It’s also deeply connected to the Modernist Monastery of Collegeville as a collaborator.

One local blogger was good enough to supply the pastor’s endorsement of sodomy in a blog entry two years before:

I am sure the vast majority of us in Basilica on Sunday were waiting to see what the Pastors Homily would be. There was little doubt about the topic; the only unknown was exactly what he’d say.

Basilica is a welcoming and diverse place, and Fr. Bauer made specific reference to the greeting at every Mass: “Whatever brings you here and wherever you are at on your faith journey, you are welcome here.” It is a theme that the Basilica lives. It fits my Parish.

The rest of his brief message spoke gently to the issue that had Lucinda out on the sidewalk: “Parishes are much like families“, he said, alluding again to something he’s said before: that in his own family, members tend to cancel each other out in Presidential elections. He pulled a quotation from, he recalled, James Joyce: “The word ‘Catholic’ means ‘here comes everybody’ “. And then he quoted from an e-mail someone had sent him during the tense few days preceding this Mass: “I stay [in the Church] because I want the Church to be the Church I want the Church to be.”

Of course, the parish continues to be welcome to depravity and unwelcome to Catholics. Nothing appears to have been done by the local Archbishop.

Cardinal: Christians Have a Tragic Lack of Knowledge About Islam

( Milan Cardinal Angelo Scola: "In Europe and the USA there is a very significant indifference about Islam. We are, in the truest sense of the word, ignorant. If we ask the average Christian about Islam, we get tragic answers." This is what Milan's Angelo Cardinal Scola said according to Radio Vatican. In a society becoming increasingly more international and in the growing religious diversity, Christians need a fundamental understanding of Islam. Scola sees the metropolitan See of Milan also as "a bridge, it is an opportunity, to meet the East and to understand, upon entering in an inter religious dialog.

Frontal Attack: "Dominus Jesus" is "Unfortunately Formulated"

Kardinal Kurt Koch

Cardinal Kurt Koch

Fidelity to the Pope and to the Conciliar Magisterium is only expected of the Society of St Pius X -- not Old Liberal Curial Cardinals, who are undermining the Faith.

( The statement in 'Dominus Jesus" that Protestants are not churches in the proper sense, is a stumbling block and an "unfortunate formulation".

This is what Old Liberal Cardinal Kurt Koch -- President of the Pontifical Office for Unity said at an event of the Old Liberal 'Focolare Movement' in Bern according to reports by the Swiss weekly 'Reformierte Press'.

'Dominus Jesus' is a declaration by the Congregation of Doctrine and the Faith in August of 2000.  It was signed by then Cardinal Ratzinger.

A Piece of Bread

Cardinal Koch answered in the negative, if he found it correct to refuse Reformed Christians Communion.

"I would never refuse this to anyone who came to Communion.  I've never personally done this."

For the Reformed their Supper is a piece of bread, that recalls Holy Thursday.

A Charter for Hocus Pocus Communion?

Cardinal Koch only wants to "speak" to the Reformed Christians who snap up Communion.

The 'Reformed Press" asked if this statement by the Cardinal is a "charter for Swiss priests", to give their hocus pocus Communion to people who don't believe in it?

The Old Liberals Are Frozen

The Society of St. Pius X belongs to those few Catholic societies in Germany, who could hope for a future.

(  The Second Vatican Council has been a "great moment".

This was explained by the Munich Dogmatic Theologian, Fr. Bertram Stubenrauch (51) on the 13th of November in "Mittelbyerischen Zeitung".

He was quick to modify his statement:  "If one discusses the faith and considers it, as it should continue in the Church, it is always a special moment."

Does he think this only of the Left?

As to the question about the most important results of the Council the secular history remains unanimous.

The Council recognized that "God is for everyone who is."

Christians would "not have arrange the right, who is nearer to God or further away from him" -- he said.

With that he has implicitly declared that even Bishop Richard Williamson is in the heart of the Church.

The Old Liberals are Frozen

The Society of St. Pius X as far as that goes "is frozen on a certain point of the stream of history"  -- distorted Fr. Stubenrauch.

That is "forgetful".

In reality the Society of Pius X is one of the few Catholic societies in Germany which could hope to have a future.

Who is "narrow minded"?

He eagerly reads the Conciliar texts:  "They make the security of the faith detectable" -- said the emotional Fr. Stubenrauch and quickly continued, that this security is "not narrow minded."

Doesn't he want to distance himself from the narrow minded and incorrigible Old Liberalism with this statement?

Damning Judgement

The statement that the Council has "created obstacles", Fr. Stubenrauch responded with: "It's always been that way."

He didn't bring the evidence from Church history for this.

What is going to come from the Conciliar Church, "no man knows" -- he said with a damning judgment.

What Progress?

As to the question if   -- as the question was pitched to him by his interview partner --
if the "progress" went too slowly, Fr. Stubenrauch answered cooly: "no".

Because: "Who will answer for the reforms, if they lead again to conflicts and new schisms?"

And: "Anything which doesn't grow is an artificial religion."

Difficult questions not blocked

A third Vatican Council is not needed according to Fr. Stubenrauch: "The desire is expected in our hectic time."

He is for that which the Second Vatican Council has implemented, "now it will be implemented in peace and  the difficult questions won't be blocked."

Actually, that latter is exactly the situation in the Old Liberal concrete Church.

Hermitage for Heresy in Collegeville

Edit: How is this not religious indifferentism? An alleged monk from Collegeville is going on a hermitage to look for new ways to violate the Catholic religion. This is from their website at St. John's Abbey.
The Nada Hermitages of the Spiritual Life Institute (the name of the Carmelite complex) thus became my base of operations as I visited most of the twenty-two religious and spiritual organizations and networks that are now part of the "Refuge for World Truths" in this area outside Crestone. Several lineages of Tibetan Buddhists, two Zen Buddhist centers, a Hindu ashram, a Neo-Shinto international Japanese organization, in addition to the Carmelite hermitages, are a few of the representative groups now in place. Nada was one of the religious organizations that had been offered land to build a retreat center here. A visionary couple who bought up an old Spanish land grant in the region decided, on the basis of prophetic inspiration, to offer free tracts of land to diverse religious and spiritual groups to settle in this restricted geographical area. Their hope was that this collection of spiritual diversity would promote the notion, so sorely needed in our day and age, that peoples with very different systems of belief and practice could live and thrive in harmony together.

He's actually attempting to justify his "hermitage" by essentially vitiating and contradicting one of the principles of the Catholic religion. It's certainly uppermost in the life of a Monk. Rather than converting the heathen, he's attempting to "discover ways to live in harmony" with the heathen.

Isn't that sort of pointless? When was the last time there was any kind of tension between Catholics and Buddhists? Except when the Buddhists murdered Jesuits in Tibet, I can't think of any, at least not recently. Catholic Encyclopedia defines indifferentism like this:
The term given, in general, to all those theories, which, for one reason or another, deny that it is the duty of man to worship God by believing and practicing the one true religion. This religious Indifferentism is to be distinguished from political indifferentism, which is applied to the policy of a state that treats all the religions within its borders as being on an equal footing before the law of the country. Indifferentism is not to be confounded with religious indifference. The former is primarily a theory disparaging the value of religion; the latter term designates the conduct of those who, whether they do or do not believe in the necessity and utility of religion, do in fact neglect to fulfil its duties.

Archbishop Fisichella: For the West, All Religions Can Not be the Same

Archbishop Rino Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Council for The New Evangelization has called the European Bishops to a profound renewal of Faith.

Tirana ( Archbishop Rino Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization, has called the European Bishops to a profound renewal of Faith. One such mission must not be limited simply to the resurrection of a religious praxis; it is necessary to have an "analysis of the sickness, in order to prescribe an effective therapy," said Fisichella at a yearly meeting of the Council of the European Bishops Conference (CCEE) on Friday in Albanian Tirana.

The Curial Bishop warned against tendencies to erect a Europe independent of Christianity. "Christendom is a necessary starting point, in order to finally understand the history of the past of our lands", said Fisichella. A neutral position to religion is "the worst method that one can imagine. For the West, religions can't be all the same."

Fisichella also warned of the "shifting sands of egalitarianism" which discount the differences between faiths and for the recognition of ones own cultural origins. Religious indifferentism does not provide and answer to the meaning of life and will not establish true unity between states. It is important to give people back their Christian identity and a feeling of their membership in the Church.

The model for the New Evangelization was described by Vatican representatives in projects for city missions in twelve European metropolises, among others, Vienna and Cologne. As possible focal points for the Mission, Fisichella named the Bible, instruction by Bishops to Catechumens, families and young people, as well as the Sacrament of Penance, lectures on the "Confessions" of St. Augustine and charitable services.

The meeting on the New Evangelization ordered by Pope Benedict XVI. is the midst of its meeting which goes till Sunday for leaders of Catholic National Bishops Conferences or their representatives. The meeting which lasted from Thursday to Sunday in Tirana is according to the CCEE, the only opportunity for European Senior Shepherds to work together on the theme before the Vatican Bishop's Synod in 2012.

Pope Condemns Indifferentism

ROME -- Pope Benedict XVI says the world is marked by religious indifference and a "growing aversion" to Christianity.

The pontiff also is urging Christians to overcome their differences through dialogue so that they can unite their efforts to influence debates in society on ethical issues such as abortion, euthanasia and the limits of science and technology.

Benedict spoke as he was leading a Vespers service Monday evening in Rome's Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls. The occasion drew to a close a week that the Vatican each year dedicates to prayers for Christian unity.

He decried what he called religious indifference and even "growing aversion" to the Christian faith.

+Schönborn and Medjugorje go Together like Freemasonry and Lies

The Masonic Cardinal Schönborn makes a trip to Medjugorje, a town known for its booming devotional tourist business. Numerous pentecostal worshippers flock to the Croatian town every year to hear its message of religious indifferentism and "hope".

Minarets to be built at "Ground Zero"

We love it when stuff like this happens. It's especially interesting in light of the almost universal support that the cultural relativism that makes things like this conceiveable in the Jewish Community of New York City.

Wreckage from plane that hit the twin towers fell on the same building that may serve as an Islamic cultural center.

A new Islamic mosque will open its doors just steps from Ground Zero where Muslim terrorists murdered 2,751 people in the name of Allah on Sept. 11, 2001 – and its leading imam, who conducts sensitivity training sessions for the FBI, has reportedly blamed Christians for starting mass attacks on civilians.

The five-story building at Park Place, just two blocks north of the former World Trade Center site, was the site of a Burlington Coat Factory. But a plane's landing-gear assembly crashed through the roof on the day 19 Muslim terrorists hijacked the airliners and flew them into the Twin Towers in 2001.

Now Muslim worshippers currently occupy the building, and they plan to turn it into a major Islamic cultural center.

"The men and women stand up, raise their hands on either side of their head, murmur 'Allahu akhbar,' bow and kneel again," reports Spiegel Online.

"Only in New York City is this possible," Daisy Khan, executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, or ASMA, told the magazine. Khan is the wife of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder of ASMA.

Archbishop Dolan tries to get Youth involved with Indifferentism

Two of New York’s most respected spiritual leaders joined hands on Nov. 5 at Fordham University, calling for an active intra-religious agenda to combat the world’s ills and to strengthen young adults’ engagement with their faiths.

Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan, the leader of Archdiocese of New York City, and Arnold M. Eisen, Ph.D., seventh chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary, acknowledged a secular crisis that sees generations of faithful teenagers and young adults in America drifting away from the religions of their birth.

Quoting from a United States survey released last year by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, Archbishop Dolan said the Catholic Church is retaining about 68 percent of its members, while the Jewish faith is retaining 76 percent.
