The Apotheosis of Oligarchy: Vendée Radio

What Do Academics Talk About in Hell?

Dante tried to teach us long ago that many clerics, including (the majority of?) popes, justly go to hell when they die. Those of you who enjoy reading this blog, no doubt, will agree with such divinely-established exclusivity. Nonetheless, what the bishops talk about at their annual meeting down there must be so intolerably dull that no sane human being would ever want to listen in. No doubt, it would involve mercy and social justice for ordained pedophiles justly accused of non-consensual sodomy with a minor. But what happens when chic, trendy, liberal, and (surprisingly-but-somehow-not-so-surprisingly) ignorant academics in the humanities end up in hell? Would their discussions ever be worth listening to? That question has inspired your favorite EF humorist to come out of retirement to relieve the tedium of our own time. In the midst of so much suffering, why not have a laugh in the spirit of Dante?




As the damned academics assemble, they take in the newest book about Mary Queen of Scots. She is still an acceptable subject of discourse, because even if she was not biologically female (how could we know that for sure?), still she identified as a woman. Nonetheless, she was white, moneyed, and often empowered, so she will not be considered acceptable for discourse at next year’s conference. Naturally, straight white men were excluded three years ago, because the presence of any hetero, white, biological male who identifies as a man necessarily creates a hostile environment for anyone deserving of free healthcare under the Biden Administration.

In light of the book’s cover, a gay man (henceforth, Gay Academic 1, aka GA1) asks: If these ladies could talk, what would they say? Two other gay men join in on the conversation:


GA2: Redheads do it better.


GA1: But to clarify: What is it that redheads do better? And given the fact that we’re talking about two British ladies, shouldn’t you say ginger, not red?


GA2: I’m removing myself from this conversation. Given the gross racial/ethnic trichological insensitivities, I no longer feel safe. Caring for myself is not self-indulgent; it is self-preservation and an act of political warfare.


GA1: If you can’t engage in the discourse required by your position because of your emotional incontinence, you are not qualified for your job and ought to be fired. I don’t believe in your non-right not to do your job just because it requires that you learn to develop the emotional maturity required to live in the emotionally unsafe places of authentic discourse about the issues we are politically and ethically obligated to discuss, including trichology. Your remarks are culturally and linguistically insensitive, and hence colonial, and also probably racist.


GA3: As a ginger-adjacent-identifying queer person, I think my voice being left out of this discourse is part of the larger systemic issue of ginger-erasure. I hold neither of you accountable for having this conversation over me. These are inherited systems of power, after all. But I would like my voice to be heard, nonetheless. In this context, however, I do not feel at liberty to discuss what it is that gingers do better, but I would like to have that conversation separately, perhaps over cocktails.


An obese, gender-fluid Latinex overhears the conversation and adds his/her/h* two cents:


Why must you insist on perpetuating patriarchy? Putting words in the mouth of women who aren’t here to speak for themselves effectively renders them voiceless. Your presence at this conference is offensive, because you are male. OUT!


With that, conference security arrives to force the gay men away. To do what they can to dismantle white fragility and maleness, the conference organizers then decide that at next year’s conference, all biological males who identify as men (including gay men) will be excluded so as to create an inclusive, affirming, welcoming, and safe environment for all.

Don’t Pay The Bishop of Columbus A Single Dime


The Catholic faithful through the centuries have trusted their Bishops and Priests to use their donated hard earned money for the glory of God and His Church. Many Catholics who are faithful to the Church and Her Mission still give willingly and generously to the Bishop’s Appeal every year. However, disturbing trends in the Church at large and locally call us to step back and reflect on the good of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal.

Although the BAA claims to use it’s donated money for a great good, and in some part probably does, the pandemic lockdown of 2020 and recent news in the Diocese raises serious concerns.

Canadian Doctor Blows the Whistle on the Deathvaxx

Update:   This Canuck is hardly alone anymore:

Who will succeed Cardinal Robert Sarah as Prefect of the Roman Congregation Divine Worship and the Sacraments?

 (Rome) Who will succeed Cardinal Robert Sarah as Prefect of the Roman Congregation Divine Worship and the Sacraments? Two months after the Cardinal's retirement from Guinea, the question is still open. The candidates most frequently mentioned in Rome come from the Bugnini direction, which suggests that a scroll should be made backwards, back to the liturgical reform of 1969, the expiration date of which is so short that in the past 50 years several editions of the Roman Missal in vernacular have already been made as the translations were allegedly needed to keep it "contemporary" as the Avvenire, the daily newspaper of Italian Bishops' Conference , on December 4, 2020, said enthusiastically.


On February 20, Cardinal Sarah was retired after a period of little more than five years by Pope FrancisThe 75-year-old black African is in excellent health. Pope Francis had waited for his 75th birthday and the regular end of a term of office. The retirement took place in such a way that no impression could arise that it had been a punitive measure.

Cardinal Sarah was the only head of the Dicasteries to have an open exchange of blows with Pope Francis. In 2016 it was about the celebration of Mass ad orientem. The call to all priests to celebrate e

astwards again, as the church had done up to the Bugnini reform of 1969/1970, is still in the room. Since Francis contradicted his prefect personally and twice, it could not develop the desired effect, although it did find an echo .

The cardinal dared a second, indirect confrontation with Francis at the beginning of 2020, when he opposed a softening of the priestly celibacy and the sacrament of Holy Orders with the book " From the depths of the heart" and Benedict XVI. had as an ally.

Short sent after the retirement Francis a apostolic visitor to the Got-tes-service-kon-gre-ga-ti-on .

"This is a particularly derogatory measure Cardinal Sarah, whose management should be reviewed," said Riposte catho-li-que .

After all, Cardinal Sarah is true in the coming conclave as a possible father-bi-le .

Candidate 1: Bishop Claudio Maniago

For Visitor Francis Bishop Claudio Maniago appointed by Castellaneta, without so far from the Vatican se-Pres-amt something was introduced to it. The former auxiliary bishop of Florence was appointed to the bishopric by Francis in 2014. Msgr. Maniago is "one of the most active members of the Italian pressure group that the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum and, privileges' of the Ecclesia Dei world demands a maximum reduction," said Riposte catho-li-que . In this way he apparently “qualified” himself in 2015 for the office of Chairman of the Liturgy Commission of the Italian Bishops' Conferences and in 2016 for membership in theGot-tes-service-kon-gre-ga-ti-on .

Bishop Claudio Maniago

Maniago stayed at the congregation for three days before Easter, as CNA reported, and had talks with the staff. It was about the daily work and views on the liturgy. Other sources suggest that the bishop should review the current staff and their attitudes.

CNA reported yesterday, citing Vatican sources, that the structure and functions of the Congregation would be retained but one point would be added. In the profile, the “liturgical sensitivity emanating from the Second Vatican Council” should be explicitly mentioned, which means the controversial liturgical reform by Msgr. Annibale Bugnini from 1969/1970.

It is not known whether and when Bishop Maniago reported to the Pope. To an official audience he was loud day-bul-le-tin not yet received the Vatican press office. Nevertheless, the timetable seems to be already in place. According to CNA sources, the appointment of the new Prefect of the intended Got-tes-service-kon-gre-ga-ti-on done yet "before the Feast of the Ascension," which will be celebrated on 13 May.

Since his posting as a visitor, Msgr. Maniago has been on everyone's lips as the potential successor to Cardinal Sarah. Since then, the concern of traditional circles has also increased.

Candidate 2: Bishop Vittorio Viola

The second name mentioned in Rome also points in the same direction. To be precise, it has been passed around longer than that of Monsignor Maniago. It is Monsignor Vittorio Viola, Bishop of Tortona. He holds a doctorate in liturgy and is a professor at the Roman  Benedictine University of Sant'Anselmo . Like Maniago, Viola was appointed to the episcopate by Pope Francis in 2014. Previously, the Franciscan Guardian of the Franciscan Convent at the Basilica Santa Maria degli Angeli in Assisi, the most important monastery of the Franciscan Order. Francis met him on his first visit to Assisi in 2013. At that time Viola was also the diocesan Caritas director.

Bishop Vittorio Viola

He was ordained a priest in 1993 from Bishop Luca Brandolini of Sora-Aquino-Pontecorvo, who was a close collaborator of Annibale Bugnini. wrote on May 11, 2020:

“Brandolini, now 87 years old, was a student and collaborator of Msgr. Annibale Bugnini, the creator of the  Novus Ordo . Bugnini's bishop's ring, who died in 1982, was worn from 1987 by his student Brandolini, who in turn passed it on to his protégé Viola in 2014. "

In November 2012, had the article Francis of Assisi instead of Annibale Bugnini - Benedict XVI. urges bishops liturgy Respek-tie-ren published that all the essential elements addressed, which now appear to play a role. At that time, Monsignor Domenico Sorrentino was Bishop of Assisi, and he is still today. The liturgist Sorrentino was appointed secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship in 2003 , the office that Annibale Bugnini once held. Pope Benedict XVI replaced him a few months after his election by the current Archbishop of Colombo, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, who had a liturgical sensitivity that was closer to Benedict.

Sorrentino was expelled from Rome as Bishop of Assisi. There he introduced the Franciscan Father Vittorio Viola to the newly elected Pope Francis in October 2013. The Italian bishop-kon-fe-rence , however, called Sorrentino, after he became bishop of Assisi, in the Lit-for-energy-kom-mis-si-on what an affront to Benedict XVI. equaled. He had removed him from the Congregation for Divine Worship because Sorrentino, contrary to Benedict's intention, had successfully thwarted the issue of the Missal of Pius V and the recovery of the traditional form of the Roman rite at the Synod of Bishops on the Eucharist of 2005.

The Liturgical Commission of the Italian bishop-kon-fe-ence has for decades been a solid domain of Bugnini school. The liturgy commission of the Bishops' Conferences for the country in more concrete impact than the Got-tes-service-kon-gre-ga-ti-on . Maniago, Viola and Sorrentino sit together on the currently seven-member Italian commission. Bugnini's student Brandolini, who ordained Viola as a priest and gave him Bugnini's bishop's ring, also belonged to her. You know each other. So it is not surprising that Sorrentino and Maniago were jointly appointed members of the Congregation for Divine Worship by Pope Francis in autumn 2016 .

Archbishop Domenico Sorrentino

The third Italian edition of was presided over by Msgr. Maniago and with the help of Msgr. Viola and Msgr. Sorrentino Missal Roma num published. It contains the changed Our Father requested by Francis and does not contain that of Benedict XVI. arranged correction of the wall-lung-wor-te per mul-tisas “for many” instead of the Bugnini translation “for all”. In the eyes of progressive church circles, both Bishop Maniago and Bishop Viola have recommended themselves for higher offices. Bishop Viola was indeed being discussed as the new Archbishop of Genoa. However, Francis chose Viola's Franciscan confrere from another branch of the order, the former General Minister of the Minorite Order Marco Tasca. 

The new Italian missal was introduced by most dioceses on the first Sunday of Advent in 2020. Its use has been mandatory since Easter 2021.


For the sake of completeness, a third candidate should not be left unmentioned, although his name is currently less heard: The Spanish Jesuit  Juan Antonio Martínez Camino SJ  is also named as a potential Sarah successor. The auxiliary bishop of Madrid received  his doctorate from the German  Jesuit University Sankt Georgen in Frankfurt am Main. As prefect of the  Got-tes-service-kon-gre-ga-ti-on , so it is said he was the "gravedigger" of the  Motu proprio Summorum Pon-ti-fi-cum .

Everything seems to indicate "an attack on 'Summorum Pontificum' and the Usus antiquior in general", said Monika Rheinschmitt from Pro Missa Tridentina at the end of February.

Policeman Found Guilty For Merely Doing Job


Edit: expect dramatic rise in street crime while the police stand back and watch.  The once proud nation of America is being transformed into another African cleptocracy.

[Wall Street Journal] Derek Chauvin was convicted of murder in the killing of George Floyd, a Black man whose death last May in police custody was captured on video that went viral and set off a summer of unrest over law enforcement’s treatment of people of color.

The rare conviction of a police officer came in a city on edge from the recent killing of another Black man, Daunte Wright, by a police officer in the suburb of Brooklyn Center.

Jews Want Popular Fox Commentator Fired

 [Washington Times ] The Anti-Defamation League has called for Fox News to fire prime-time opinion host Tucker Carlson because he defended a white-supremacist theory that says whites are being “replaced” by people of color.

In a letter to Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott on Friday, the head of the ADL, Jonathan Greenblatt, said Carlson’s “rhetoric was not just a dog whistle to racists - it was a bullhorn.”

The civil rights group listed numerous instances Carlson has used anti-immigrant language. Those include saying immigration makes the U.S. “poorer and dirtier” and questioning whether white supremacy is real. Greenblatt said that “given his long record of race-baiting, we believe it is time for Carlson to go.”
