On Cultural Appropriation and Whoopi Goldberg

Culturally insensitive first graders do Mexican Hat Dance!
You've all heard the diatribes against those who commit the mortal sin of "cultural appropriation." You know -- if you're a gringo don't you dare open a taco stand. If you're a little girl who wants a "geisha" tea party for your birthday, be prepared to be shamed and ridiculed. And of course don't you dare dress up on Halloween in a gypsy outfit or an Indian headdress (unless, of course, you're a gypsy or an Indian like -- play laugh track --  Elizabeth Warren). And burn that sombrero and that can-can dancer's outfit! All of these are big no-no's in the ever-growing list of politically incorrect sins.

I Love Mr. Rogers and Thank God for the Example of Love He Gave to a Cynical World!

Mr. Rogers and his alter-ego,
Daniel Stripe-ed Tiger
I went to the Mr. Rogers movie yesterday and am so glad I did. What an inspiration! His show exemplified how the medium of television could make a difference for the good.

He hated shows that degraded the dignity of children (or anyone else for that matter). He knew children were worth more than pie-in-the-face slapstick and showed it by dealing with difficult questions (death, assassination, etc.), sometimes very subtly like when he shared his kiddie pool and his towel with the black police officer in the neighborhood, Officer Clemmons. Never heavy handed, he met challenges with sensitivity, kindness, and compassion.

More Love from the Left -- They Throw S*** at Coffee Shop Because Owner Supports Trump

‘I Love Peace,’ Says Boyle Heights Cafe Owner Of Protest Over Support Of Trump Immigration Policies
Will the left replace their "pussy"
hats with the phrygian cap of the
FRENCH REVOLUTION?

I had to laugh when I was reading this article because of the absolute insanity of the left, not to mention their blatant hypocrisy

Here's a business owner, a man who's name (Shalom) literally means  peace, a man who hires immigrants, is an immigrant himself, and has the audacity to believe in free speech.

Why is he labeled hateful? For no other reason than he supports Donald Trump's immigration policies and dared to tweet his opinion.

No free speech for you, Shalom!

But what made me laugh was the Chamber of Commerce giving him the boot in a sanctimonious letter.

Why? Well, read this excerpt:

FLOTUS Melania Trump in Japan with School Children

I loved every part of this video - even watching the Secret Service Agents - of First Lady Melania Trump with school children in Tokyo, Japan in November, 2017. She is polished, graceful, quiet and kind. The children start singing at 2:32, but even the introductions before that are interesting to watch. Melania's poise is unparalleled in First Ladies.

Every child wants to shake her hand which is impossible until at last (at 7:07) Melania holds up her palms so that each child can do high fives or touch her hands. At 7:00 - 7:06 after shaking hands with her a group of girls look at their hands in awe, and even smell them! Melania truly enjoys being with the children.


In case you're wondering, she is wearing a caped midnight blue Dior dress. For the state dinner she wore a cardinal red Valentino dress. One picture showed her entrance at the state dinner with President Trump, where every man's eye was following her, so to all the designers who said they would refuse to dress Melania Trump, I say: "Melania is far too classy to condescend to wear your garish outfits. Her taste in clothes is far above what you are able to create."


Don't Despair Over Bad Bishops -- The Suffering They Inflict on Faithful Priests will Bring Graces Flowing on Our Poor Church

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin
Irish Priest Punished after Pro-life Homily

After reading this article, I left the following comment:
One more example of bad bishops undermining the faith. Priests can attend pride marches and shill for same-sex marriage like Fr. Martin and be lauded and given Vatican posts. Faithful priests get the cross and the nine inch nails. That's why I don't despair. The blood of the martyrs (even white martyrs) is the seedbed of the faith. This persecution is the Good Friday that will bring the Resurrection! I'm praying for Fr. Larkin and exposing this rot on my blog with an address for the bishop. May he hear from people all over the world about this injustice!
Archbishop Diarmuid Martin removed Fr. Larkin from his pastoral assignment forbidding him to say any public Masses or have any contact with former parishioners.

Why?

The Longstanding Rotten Stench of Cardinal McCarrick

Former Priest Solicited by McCarrick Speaks Out

We can pray that this latest scandal of a high level cleric will make those in charge accountable, but it's not likely. Read the article and see how McCarrick, the pharisee, told his priests they would be responsible for their own defense if accused of abuse knowing full well that he was absolutely guilty. So he had all the resources of his diocese to defend himself, but any innocent priest facing a false accusation from a money-grubbing liar with a grudge would be on his own. Great spiritual father, eh?

God Secretly Watched "The Lone Ranger" on His TV Set in 1949

I'm pure evil. What're ya gonna do about it?
God got the idea of Donald J Trump as POTUS from secretly watching the 200+ episodes of The Lone Ranger on His TV set from 1949 to 1957. 

God liked Clayton Moore's role of a brave masked man fighting evil, rescuing the day. In the TV series all the evil of the world was personified by Lee Van Cleef as the Kansas Kid or Joe Singer or Bull Harper, Jango or whatever other sinister character lurked behind every rock to leap out with guns blazing thereby destroying the equanimity of the happy townsfolk. 

So in real life, when times got tough with the Left and Communism and Islam and the EU, the OIC, and Dhimmicrats out to banish Him from the face of the earth, God, remembering His happy moments watching The Lone Ranger, looked around and thought, "Hmmm. The world needs another Lone Ranger, 'a man whose presence brings fear to the lawless.' Whom shall I send?" 

I'm Shocked!


At the hearing held last week in Congress there was, as far as I am concerned, only one bright spot.  It shocks me that it is this same brief moment out of the whole day that the media is fixed on saying was the “low point.”

Abuser McCarrick got the Red Hat; Fr. Haley Who Tried to Protect the Flock Got the Butcher's Knife

He Preyed on Men Who Wanted to Be Priests

Reading stories about Cardinal McCarrick's sordid history of abuse make me so angry I need to go out and pound rocks. Sadly, he is becoming the icon for the hierarchy. How many of his "brethren" are just like him? If not abusers themselves, enablers and advancers of the abusers.

The Synods on the Family gave us a magnified view of so many evil men in red hats willing to lie and preen in front of the cameras while they undermined the faith. When I see the dissent to Church teaching among the "princes" of the Church, I recall Bishop Bruskewitz at the Dallas meeting making a motion to study the link between dissent and the sex abuse scandals. He couldn't even get a second! The bishops just wanted the bad news to go away or at least be redirected away from their own culpability.      Read more...

The Perfect Example of Liberty Run Amuck

Last week I posted an article titled "Freedom, Liberty, What's the Difference."  Friday, I read a piece on The Catholic Thing titled, The Left (prematurely) Freaks Out, which drives home even more clearly the point I tried to make.  

 In my own essay I stuck to the topic of religious liberty and how that is dangerous.  David Carlin in his article
