The Treason of the Catholic "Nice Guys"

The Church will --
through the power of the Holy Spirit!
Editor's Note: This is the main article from the current issue of the Les Femmes newsletter. It's not posted on line yet; I'm offering this as preview. I am on retreat this week and scheduled the article to post before I left. No comments will be posted, however, until I return on Saturday. So if you comment please be patient. 

I will be computer and phone-free this week and will moderate all comments when I return. I'm praying for the intentions of my readers during this five-day silent retreat. I would appreciate your prayers as well.

Tearing Old Dixie Down

Tearing Old Dixie down - August 16, 2017
Baltimore, in the middle of the night
Remember the song, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down by Canadian Robbie Robertson, chief songwriter for The Band? Well, they're doing it again - tearing Old Dixie down. 150 years later. First the Confederate flag was banned then Charlottesville happened therefore now all Confederate statues are being torn down so that in the future no one will ever know about the War Between the States. 

"Shhhh! Don't mention the war!" (Basil Fawlty) 

Unfortunately, the effect will be the opposite since "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it". (George Santayana)

A Seventh Day Adventist's Respectful Reply

The email below was received by the Orlando Truth ( from a Seventh Day Adventist in response to the Orlando Truth's newsletter about anti-Catholic SDA Pastor Bill Hughes. The newsletter was mailed, then later posted on Les Femmes on August 11th. My comments are in red.

TO: The Editor

We received the article you sent regarding Pastor Bill Hughes. It is appreciated, the efforts you are making to defend against what you have termed 'Anti-Catholicism'. I was particularly drawn to the statement from Arthur Schlesinger, Sr. that anti-Catholicism is “the deepest bias in the history of the American people.” However, I would have to clarify that by asserting that racism and racial bigotry has, by far, been the greatest bias in this country, and still is. Try being a Catholic in the Bible Belt, a Catholic living under the Obama regime, and a Catholic convert in a Protestant family of liberals. 

On the other hand, it has also been correctly stated by George Santayana that, "Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it." Our greatest error is in forgetting where we came from; how what we now know as The United States of America originated in its past. Some of us still have remembrance of the truth in this regard. There have been deliberate and concerted efforts to cover up this historic past, and in some cases, to even conspire to rewrite it as though it never happened. Catholics also immigrated to America to escape oppression of their Protestant overlords. 

I am a Seventh Day Adventist, and I must clear up a few misled notions. First and foremost, as an SDA Christian, I do not have one ounce of hatred against ANY Catholic, as I have many Catholic friends. It is NOT the belief that true Adventists hate Catholics, or anyone else of any other faith. That is not a doctrine of the Adventist faith. We know quite clearly, and profess that God has His people in many other Christian faiths, especially Catholicism. We believe that before it’s all over, a great number of Catholics will be saved into God’s Kingdom, whereas also we believe that many SDA’s will be lost. [Revelation 18:4]

Guest Post: Open Letter to President Trump

Mr. President:

Concerning the new immigration bill to be deliberated by Congress when it returns from its August recess, it should be emphasized that immigration into the U.S. is a privilege, not a right. In the same way a stranger has no right to walk into somebody's house without permission, so a foreigner has no right walking into America without permission from the government. This permission to migrants should be based most especially on evidence that they truly honor and love America.

Question for the Day: How Come Liberals Condemn Hate on the Right and Champion Hate on the Left?

                         Do these look like good guys?

Donald Trump's comments after Charlottesville condemning violence wherever it comes from were totally on target.

Does anyone really believe the only bad guys in Charlottesville were the white supremacists?

Hey, the liberals were thrilled to have an opportunity to send in their thugs pretending to be the "good guys" in white hats. They aren't! Antifa wants an open war and everywhere they go violence erupts.

In Charlottesville, it was the fascists vs. the commies all over again. Are there any good guys in those groups?

Food for Thought: The Great American Eclipse Occurs on the Eve of Mary's Feast

That's right! But not just any feast day. It's the eve of the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the traditional liturgical calendar and the feast of the Queenship of Mary in the modern calendar.

Remember what Mary told the children at Fatima? "In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph." Is her Son, the Light of the World, using this heavenly event to remind us to listen to and honor His Mother as Queen of heaven and earth?

 And consider this. August was the month the little shepherd children were kidnapped by the mayor of Ourem on the day of the scheduled apparition, August 13th. Instead of being at the Cova de Iria with the "beautiful lady" the children were being interrogated by the mayor and threatened with being boiled in oil. They experienced a virtual martyrdom. Mary appeared to them later on August 19th. These two events graphically illustrate the battle between godless secularism and the Catholic faith.

Hmm...Does this Explain Pope Benedict's Abdication?

Honestly...admit wonder about Pope Benedict's abdication. Many thought he must be seriously ill or seeing sings of dementia, but here we are almost five years later and Pope Benedict, while frail as one would expect of a man his age, continues to be clear in mind. Did he really abdicate because he didn't have the energy to attend World Youth Day and gallivant around the world?

I suspect there's a lot more to the story. So do many others. So check out the scenario described in the article below and scratch your head. If the pope was "forced out," my understanding is that he is still the pope. And the fact that he continues to wear the papal white has always been confusing. Where in history have we had a "pope emeritus?" Anti-popes, yes; three men claiming to be pope at one time, yes; but never a "pope emeritus."

Prayer Requests? I'll Take Them on Retreat

Be still and know that I am God.
I'm going on a five day silent Ignatian Retreat starting Monday evening and ending Saturday. I will leave some posts scheduled to appear while I'm gone, but won't be moderating any comments. Please be patient; I will moderate them on my return. The only comments that will post will be those written by my colleagues, Susan and Chriss, who have the authority to post without moderation.

When I'm on retreat I always pray for the intentions of my readers and for all the challenges troubling our poor Church and our even poorer world. I look forward to the silence and peace that accompanies these days to seek the Lord's will in my life and for this little media apostolate! My motto for this retreat will be to fulfill the vision of the prophet Micah: to act justly, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with the Lord.

Gender Identity Idiocy...

Rachel Levine - If he says he's
a woman - POOF! - he's a
woman. (What a woman, eh?)
Since feelings determine reality, why are we trying to change the feelings of those with eating disorders who feel fat, If you feel fast, you must be fat. So binge and purge to your hearts content or starve yourself to death. It's normal behavior! Don't let anyone try to change you! Those who do, are obviously foodaphobes.

And, hey!  If you feel like you're Napoleon or Queen Elizabeth or Sherlock Holmes or the household pet...well, you can't be wrong....right? After all, your feelings couldn't possibly be at odds with reality....Right? "It can't be wrong when it feels so right."....Right? Feelings never lie....Right?

Before there was Kaitlin Jenner there was Rachel Levine:
Levine is a biological male who has been transitioning to female over the last decade. Levine is also a medical specialist in eating disorders with nearly thirty years of experience in pediatric psychology....

The Anti-Catholicism of SDA Pastor Bill Hughes

 The follow-up article posted on August 16th is HERE.

I'm here to tell you that all evils in the world 
are heavily influenced by the Jesuits, because 
the Catholic Church and the Pope are "hell bent 
on world domination." - Pastor Bill Hughes

The following article is from The Orlando Truth,
Summer 2017, Issue No. 62.

       Arthur Schlesinger Sr. of Harvard University has called anti-Catholicism “the deepest bias in the history of the American people”, even more pernicious than anti-Semitism. During most of American history, anti-Catholicism has been an exceedingly potent force. At least through the early part of the 20th century, and in some quarters even today, Protestants accepted that the Catholic Church was the monstrous creature prophesied in the Biblical Book of Revelation as the “mother of harlots” clothed in purple and scarlet, who held in her hand “a golden cup full of abominations.” The Pope, as its leader, was vilified as the Antichrist. Though now rarely heard in respectable discourse, these ideas have never entirely vanished. Isolated propagandists continue to circulate anti-papal and anti-Catholic mythologies, presenting the Church as the hidden hand behind the world’s governments and financial systems. A major worldwide publisher of such vitriol is headquartered in Eustis, Florida. Their book storage facility and global distribution center is supposedly located on a former Ku Klux Klan (KKK) site in the vicinity of Eustis, Florida. This enterprise, titled TRUTH TRIUMPHANT, is owned and operated by Pastor Bill and Hoda Hughes, who are Seventh Day Adventists. Their absurd slanders could readily be considered unimportant, indeed laughable, and be dismissed without further comment except for the fact that they have become suppliers to a worldwide network of missionaries eager for their lies about the Catholic Church. Theirs is a deadly serious operation with the most sinister overtones, especially because of their appeal to the uneducated, who are least able to ascertain the falsehoods.

The Persecution of Dr. Paul Church and What It Means for State Delegate Bob Marshall's Campaign

Transgender man is running
against VA State Delegate Bob
Marshall. The new normal?
Dr. Paul Church has been a urologist for over 30 years and has seen the devastation of the unhealthy sexual behaviors and practices of the LGBTQ crowd. He became a target for daring to tell the truth about the health risks of perverted sex and was banned from several Boston hospitals. Today, doctors are expected to play the game -- kill patients on request (or without request),  cut off healthy body parts and give hormone injections to satisfy patients' delusions, etc. Sadly for many in the medical community, it's not about health care any more, but social engineering

There is nothing to celebrate in the high risk behavior of sexual deviants, but saying that is sure to get a doctor in trouble as it did with Dr. Church. Read more here. I recommend listening to Dr. Church's testimony and consider what the future looks like when gender tyrants are setting policy and agendas in our state and federal legislatures.
