Guest Post:Evolution is a HYPOTHESIS Developed and Promoted by Atheists -- Part II

Speak for yourself, Charlie! Your grandaddy may have been a monkey (or a monkey's uncle); the rest of us came from Adam, created directly by God, and did not "evolve" from the primordial soup or a pre-existing universe.

By Thomas McFadden

On Sunday, August 21st I sent to our mailing list an email about how Catholic kids lose belief in God because the Catholic education establishment has essentially incorporated theories of origins such as cosmic and biological evolution that are incompatible with Catholic doctrine. As an example I cited Bishop Robert Barron's incoherent belief that accepts the speculations of atheists as scientific facts but "baptizes" them by saying that "God did it." These "theistic evolutionists" are vague about what exactly God did and when He did it. I quoted the question posed by Fr. Michael Chaberek in his book Aquinas and Evolution. He asked how it happened that at the beginning of the 20th century evolution theories were rejected by Popes and Vatican Congregations and at the end of the 20th century, although neither the evolution theory or Catholic doctrine had changed, evolution theory had become at the education level, a mainstream Catholic teaching. One reaction I got to last Sunday's email came from a person on this mailing list who understands the problem:

THE FLASHLIGHT: CM Grifters Attack Wyoming Carmelites with Woman Who Has NO CONNECTION!

Welcome to THE FLASHLIGHT where grifters and gaslighters are trapped and exposed.

Church Militant is obviously feeling the sting from the challenge by former novices of the Wyoming Carmelites. You can know that because they've now brought in the BIG GUN, a WOMAN and former novice with NO experience of the Wyoming Carmel AT ALL. 

CM grifters double down on their attack with new "expert" witness.

Here's what CM says about their latest "whistleblower" who is affirming Augustine Inferrara's story without having any personal knowledge or experience with the Wyoming Carmelites or even, apparently, with Augustine. Everything is based on her impressions and opinions from watching Christine Niles' Spotlight attack piece:

Hey, Traditionalist Scum, You Deserve to Be Cancelled!

Do traditionalists only care about the vestments and altar linens? Is it a negative to give
 God dignified and beautiful worship? Read Exodus 35-39 and Leviticus!

I used regularly to read the blog of a Catholic which I found interesting and often thought-provoking. Ultimately, however, there came a parting of the ways. I stopped visiting because he closed his eyes to every scandalous thing the pope did defending what was indefensible. More and more he and those who commented on his blog condemned Catholics for defending the faith against Francis's very un-Catholic behavior: his promotion of abortion, sodomy, etc., his reverencing Pachamama and the circle spirits, his syncretism that leads others to think all religions are the same. None of this is Catholic and to point that out is to defend the faith and protect those being led into sin by the scandal.

Do You Listen to Gossip, Slander, and Detraction: Learn a Lesson from Socrates!

I receive a daily devotional from the SSPX. The other day this fascinating meditation and story about Socrates gave me an intriguing insight into the need to close our ears to gossip, slander, and detraction. When we "listen," we become guilty of the same sin as the tale-bearer. 

What a life's ambition Socrates had -- to pursue truth and encourage others to join him. Imagine the difference we would see in our culture if knowing and spreading truth were the central goal of every man and woman on the planet. 

Consider...God is Truth, so if you are searching for truth, you are searching for God. I once said that to an abortion supporter named Dan at an Operation Rescue event in Washington, D.C. I told him that he seemed to me to be a young man searching for the truth and, if you are searching for truth, you are searching for God. That happened over 30 years ago and I still pray for Dan today. I hope he is pursuing truth and has found it in Jesus Christ.

Join in a Healing Prayer Through the Intercession of Blessed Karl of Austria

Editor's note: I received this email today from my friend Bob Marshall, former Virginia state delegate and often called the "conscience" of the Virginia legislature. Sad to say he was replaced by a transgender "woman" whose campaign ads included how he put on his makeup which always brings to my mind the expressions about putting lipstick on a pig or not being able to turn a sow's ear into a silk purse. Sorry, Dan, you're still a man! After you pray the healing prayer, please say a prayer for poor deluded Dan (Danica) Roem whom Manassas voters continue to support and is now running for state senate. God help Virginia! Blessed Karl and Venerable Zita, pray for us.

Blessed Karl and Venerable Zita on their wedding day October 21, 1911
Mary Ann,

We received a prayer request to petition for a particular person who needs a miracle as proof of being a Saint!

DESIDERIO DESIDERAVI: On Baptism -- Beautiful Words

In my previous post on Desiderio Desideravi, the pope's latest missive, I described the cognitive dissonance of his work. He often says good things but, as my mom always said, "Actions speak louder than words." Sad to say, this pope's actions often directly oppose his words, which throws the faithful into confusion. Do I listen to the pope? He said abortion is bad and then honored an Italian abortionist? He talks about the value of life, but turned the Vatican Pontifical Academy for Life into a group harboring radical pro-abortion and pro-euthanasia advocates. What gives? I've said before, Francis speaks with a forked tongue. The examples that illustrate it could fill an encyclopedia. 

When one sees grey clouds forming and hears thunder, he knows what's coming. The Francis Effect of cognitive dissonance blows the warning trumpet. You cannot trust this man; he uses the truth to advance the lie. That, friends is the classic modus operandi of evil. Administer the poison by disguising it in honey. "For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil." (Prov 5:3) That proverb could just as easily be used to describe "adultery" (idolatry) against God who brooks no strange gods before Him. 

What other people think of Western "values"

An Orgy in Imperial Rome
by Henryk Siemiradzky

What does the decadent West have to offer the rest of the world? Abortion? Sodomy? Drag Queens? Transgender studies? In our private lives we can block out cultural decadence but each time we simply go to the grocery store or shop at the mall we're inundated with current Western "values". It's in our face everywhere from ripped jeans (jeans so ripped that it looks like the girl is wrapped in bare threads) to girls wearing shorts so short that the lower part of their buttocks shows.

One clothing store at the mall had large Marc Jacobs posters with a pregnant transgender man in a bikini and a transgender woman wearing a silver shift holding up a pink bottle of perfume. The posters were placed in the middle of a main aisle so that every person entering and exiting the store had to see them, including children.

Three Red Rose Rescuers are in Jail in New York: Will You Do a Corporal Work of Mercy?


The Catfight and Paranoid Accusation


This is the continuation of yesterdays' post with an explanation HERE.

Note: I should have explained yesterday that the authors at the website and the website itself are immensely famous literally across the planet. The two men on the podcast also are famous - or at least very well known. The website is one where I had formerly given great respect to these people because of their experience and status. But no more because how can they defend Nazi terrorism? How can they turn a blind eye to factual events...being so "in the know" and all?  Why do they have such visceral hatred for Russia? 

(Her name) is deluded by believing the Western media controlled by the Deep State and its agenda. But that aside, even if it were true – which it isn’t – why the complaint that Russia is getting weapons from the Iranian Mullahs when the Ukraine has gotten all-l-l-l its weapons from the Collective West? What’s the difference?

None, because if one side can get weapons from several countries, why cannot the other side get weapons from some other countries? What (her name) is saying is that it’s OK for the Ukraine to do something but not for Russia to do the same. Unbalanced reasoning on (her name)'s part.

But then (her name) must love Nazis because of what I mentioned above about Ukraine and the Nazi Bandera to which (her name) remains silent.

The Ukraine/Russia Debate Before the Catfight

For the past 10 days I've been posting comments on a well known website "debating" with a person who comments on nearly all that site's articles mirroring their point of view. This person might be one of the authors or one of their spouses, an employee or one of their spouses. I have no idea who this person is, however she's obviously someone approved by the website's ownership. 

Since the person thought I was a man because of my comment name she revealed that she's a woman, 5'1", age 62 and has a bad knee. Wanting to even the playing field (woman to woman, because for some reason this person thought the proverbial battlefield to be real) I revealed that I'm also a woman, my age and height and that I'm in perfect health. She then accused me of threatening to kill her!

The Flashlight: Another Former Novice with the Wyoming Carmelites Shares His "Awesome" Experience

Welcome to THE FLASHLIGHT where grifters and gaslighters are trapped and exposed. 

Another former novice with the Wyoming Carmelites has come forward to share his experience with the monks and defend them from the so-called investigation by Christine Niles, chief CM grifter. 

The former novices, all impressive and manly young men, avoid criticizing Church Militant (CM). But in view of the damage CM is doing to the faith by their slander, THE FLASHLIGHT is dedicated to exposing their shameful bias and their willingness to lie in order to advance their agenda.

Guest Post: Evolution is a HYPOTHESIS Developed and Promoted by Atheists

Editor's Note: I offer this guest post today from my friend, Tom McFadden, which I received in my inbox. Are your children away from the faith? Do you wonder what influences damaged their belief in our wonderful God who loves them so much? What is the world telling them? How many have walked away because of scandal-mongers in the world and in the Church. I haven't read Tom's book, but I plan to. I have his earlier book, Creation, Evolution and Catholicism: A Discussion for Those Who Believe, which is well worth the time spent reading. I expect this book will prove the same. Macro-evolution is a myth with little data to back it up. It's the pernicious creed of humanists. Would God, Who sent His own Son conceived in the body of a woman and raised by human parents, make the first man and woman the children of apes? Use your common sense!

The book below is an attempt to explain why half of all the kids baptized and confirmed in the last 30 years have left the Catholic Church. As of 2016 the Catholic Bishops knew that 14 million American Catholics had left the Church just since 2000. The book is actually part of a trilogy I've published that helps to explain causes and possible solutions to the ongoing apostasy of Catholic youths.

The Flashlight: Did Church Militant Use Malware Attacks Against Their Enemies?

Welcome to The Flashlight where Grifters and Gaslighters are Trapped and Exposed.

Is Church Militant (CM) collecting information about visitors to their website? Do they have malware embedded that allows them to collect your IP address and other personal information about you? Restoring the Faith makes a credible case that they did exactly that -- until their lies and falsehoods were exposed. Here's the video. I'm a little late catching this since the video was from last March, but it illustrates exactly how devious CM is. They act like Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal with his enemies list.

St. Bernard of Clairvaux vs. the Anti-Pope

St. Bernard of Clairvaux choking a demon!

Today is the feast of St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153), surely a saint for our time. He opposed anti-pope Anacletus II who remained on the papal throne until his death. Anacletus's anti-pope successor, Victor III, repented and resigned after two days and acknowledged the true pope, Innocent II. We are not the only ones living in confusing times.

Cognitive Dissonance: the Francis Effect and Desiderio Desideravi

An early case of cognitive dissonance

I once experienced a severe case of vertigo. Not only could I not stand up without holding onto something, my stomach was in turmoil, and the only relief came from lying down. It's something I hope never to go through again. My body was not in conformity with the world.

The jabs that kill!

Suppose you have a baby who's allergic to something. You don't realize for some time what's going on, you just notice that the little one is fussy, throws up, develops skin lesions, or some other warning signs that something is wrong.

"Gaslighting Central" - The Propaganda Game over Ukraine

I always learn a lot by reading Mundabor's blog. Today he used a term that struck a chord when he called the pages on Reddit where folks claim Ukraine is winning the war "Gaslighting Central:" Here's a bit of what he wrote:
The method used by the propagandists is very simple: a lot of videos of unclear source, plus repeating all the obvious lies of the Ukrainian Government, plus belittling every loss. Russia’s downfall is always a
bout to happen. Their losses assume fantastic proportions for people who, actually, shell the Ukrainians 10 to 1 most of the time (this is, by the way, admitted by many Ukrainian sources themselves). Severodonetsk was to be Putin’s Stalingrad. When it was lost, it became irrelevant in the great scheme of things because hey, we have Lisichansk. When Lisichansk, too, was lost, well that was a victory of sort because we inflicted to the Russians (de-humanised as orcs; it helps a lot by massacres) sooooo many purely imaginary losses we are now well, well in front of them. Then we keep retreating, and they keep advancing. But hey, they must be so, so demoralised!

You Can't Get Into Heaven Without It!

It's an absolutely essential virtue. Can you guess what it is? I'll give you a hint, although you've probably figured it out already.

What happened at the Last Supper after Jesus overheard his apostles asking each other who was the greatest? He did something that astonished them. He washed their feet, the act of a lowly servant. And then he said, "Let this be a lesson to you," It's a lesson for all of us!

And what is that lesson? HUMILITY!

Fr. John Hardon (The priest who proved there really were still some holy Jesuits left.) often said that only faith-filled, little, humble people will go to heaven. Remember the pharisee in the temple bragging about how holy he was? Jesus corrected that idea lickity split. He told the crowds the pharisee went home from the temple not only not justified, but with the implication that he was even more entrenched in his sinful pride.

Shocking News - Loch Ness Monster Found in Trump's Pool at Mar-a-Lago

Not only that but there's incredible news coming from Florida that Elvis is alive and well at Mar-a-Lago and Trump has given him the nuclear codes.

Here's Kathy Lindsdale with the Mainstream Media interviewing an FBI agent willing to disclose information found inside the former president's home.

The Ministry of Truth in the Diocese of Arlington

The Arlington Catholic Herald, our diocesan newspaper, came yesterday. I generally check the priest's moves and the bishop's schedule and do a quick page-through to see if I want to read anything. It used to be a joke among some of my confreres, when Bishop Paul Loverde was our ordinary to count how many photos of him graced the pages of the paper. Bishop Burbidge can't compete. His only photo in this issues was the stamp-sized mini attached to his column.

At any rate, one headline caught my eye and caused uncontrollable eye-rolling and head-shaking, and, frankly, anger over the dishonesty it illustrated.

What Will Be Your Last Words?

If you were the bug in that chicken's mouth what would be your last words?

Browsing my email this morning, I came across a headline asking, "What will be your last words?" I didn't read the article, a sermon for the feast of St. Lawrence. I've avoided the author for years after his severe criticism of home schooling parents.

We are in Big Trouble and the Constitution and Bill of Rights Will Not Save Us!

Centralization of government kills freedom. When one party controls all three branches of government, freedom dies. We are there with only a few strict constructionist judges holding the line. All the institutions of government are in the hands of the tyrants and will be controlling our lives from cradle to grave! 

Gridlock is a blessing! We need more of it!

Listen to Antonin Scalia and take his words to heart. We will not see his like again. Listen to him describe the Bill of Rights of the Soviet Union before the fall. It was greater than ours with even more "freedoms." As Scalia says it was a "parchment guarantee," meaningless in real life. Learn to love the gridlock, he says, which protects minorities. "It doesn't take much to throw a monkey wrench into this complex system [of ours]." The Framers knew what they were doing.

Weaponizing the Novus Ordo to Beat Traditionalists into Submission

Thomas Cranmer, 
Archbishop of Canterbury
What sad times we live in when a form of the Mass, the Novus Ordo (NO), is weaponized to beat faithful, traditional Catholics into abandoning the Mass of the Ages. 

It's not, in fact, a new tactic. During the regency of Edward VI, son of Henry VIII, those in power used Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, to weaponize the Mass in order to force recusant Catholics into the Anglican services. After the brief reign of Queen Mary, the tyranny escalated. The brutal and cruel punishment of the English population for the crime of attending the Latin Mass was to be hanged, drawn, and quartered. Thank God we don't face that! Punishment for refusing to attend the new mass was economic ruin! They rapidly turned the country into an apostate nation hostile to the pope and to the Church.

Read the stories of the English priests and laity martyred at Tyburn Tree to weep and lament the evil being resurrected in our own time using softer persecution. Be thankful that the most that will ultimately happen to us is likely to be accusations of schism. After all, as Francis so famously said, "I pray that there will not be schisms, but I am not afraid." In that same airplane interview, he implied that those who disagree with him have mental problems:

Bergoglio's Psychological Torture of Traditionalists

The breaking of the Traditional Catholic mind

Since Francis cannot do what Henry VIII did - physically torture and kill Catholics - he's doing psychologically with known methods of psychological torture to cause the disintegration of personality - or more to the point, the disintegration of the Traditionalist personality - to the point of acquiescence, that is, to the point that Traditionalists will go without protest into the Novus Ordo Mass. 

His only option to kill the Old Mass is to psychologically torture Traditionalists until they give up their recalcitrant ways and to do this entails a new attribute previously not wanted in the character of bishops - cruelty. On the part of Bergoglio it's apparently pagan sadistic cruelty since he seems to derive pleasure from Traditionalists' suffering and humiliation by deleting Jesus within our souls with the killing of the Old Mass, crushing it then putting it to death. Then when psychologically tortured Traditionalists have lost resistance to losing their Faith, they, spiritually broken, will finally surrender and join the dance that is the Novus Ordo.

From the "Ya Just Gotta Laugh File" wherein Francis Accuses Traditionalists of "Paganism of Thought."

So...those who love tradition are guilty of "paganism of thought." 


Does Francis ever listen to himself? Are traditionalists the ones whose fruits illustrate "paganism of thought?" Is it not instead the man who:

  • bends the knee to Pachama and engages in pagan smudging rituals honoring the "circle of spirits,"

Ukraine War: Biowarfare and the Theft of Billions

From Dr. Mercola's website: Truth about the Ukraine. It's not what you think. It's the biggest money laundering scheme on the planet. Take down that Ukraine flag and wake up to what the evil elites have planned for you after they bleed you dry!

Ukraine War: Biowarfare and the Theft of Billions


  • For years, Ukraine was recognized as one of the most, if not “the” most, corrupt nation in Europe. It held on to that reputation all the way up to the day Russia invaded it, at which point media worldwide suddenly started rewriting history
  • A few days after firing several top officials, Zelensky also issued a blacklist of American “pro-Russian propagandists,” which includes Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky, former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, and independent journalist Glenn Greenwald
  • After receiving billions of dollars from American taxpayers, Zelensky now wants to silence American politicians and journalists who question government’s use of funds and America’s continued involvement in the Ukraine conflict — a move that raises questions about Ukraine being a bastion of democracy and freedom
  • U.S. aid to Ukraine may be a corrupt scheme to steal taxpayer funds, launder the money through Ukraine, and then funnel the money back into the hands of the transnational security elite
  • Another angle that can help explain U.S. support of Ukraine’s authoritarian regime is that we have a number of biolabs in Ukraine, the purposes of which the U.S. government is keen to obscure. Russia claims it will release a comprehensive report before U.S. midterms detailing how top Democrats facilitated illegal biowarfare research in Ukraine, in collaboration with Big Pharma, which in turn funneled massive campaign contributions back to Democrats

Fr. Vander Woude encourages the Latin Mass congregation!


I found this video so incredibly sad. 

First of all, I have always had great respect for Fr. Tom Vander Woude who is the pastor at Holy Trinity in Gainesville. In a previous post, I mistakenly said the congregation at Holy Trinity was being abandoned because the Montessori school is in the boundaries of All Saints in Manassas. However, it is the priests of Holy Trinity who will care for that very large Latin Mass community -- at least until the next act of suppression is implemented.

Guest Post: Words Have Meaning that Lead to Consequences

By Fr. Tom Collins

Do you believe that God, Who sent His only begotten Son to be born of a woman, 
created the first man in the womb of a reasonless ape?

Over the past half century, I have noted a tendency to increasingly embrace secular premises and language in order to understand and convey the sacred and transformative truths of our Faith. One example of this is the use of the word, evolution, in order to describe the dynamic of development in Creation and in the human community. The problem with this term is that it is impersonal. It views such development as based on dynamics of power and survival. And it is supported by appeals for people to seek to be “on the right side of history”(e.g., those aligning with Hitler and Tojo in late 1941). It also leads souls not only to value expediency over integrity, but also to view morality merely as a matter of becoming more adept at adapting to and adopting the prevalent social norms of the moment (e.g., the #Me-too craze).

We Can't Cut Bishop Burbidge Any More Slack: The Latin Mass Crackdown is Brutal and Cruel!

The new Bishop Burbidge segregation:
Latin Mass Catholics to the left, NO Catholics to the right!

Claire Chretien pegs it with an article at LifeSiteNews that is crystal clear. 

What is happening in Arlington is, indeed, brutal, cruel, and advances an agenda that masquerades as "unity" while it segregates traditional Catholics from the parish. Is the bishop worried that traditionalists will pollute the churches and the other parishioners?

The Faith Wreckers at the Academy for Life Exposed

I once said to my husband that I would know the Catholic Church wasn't the true Church when she endorsed abortion and contraception. Of course, it can never happen! The Church is indefectible which means she cannot err. She is always led by the Holy Spirit. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean she won't fall into the hands of evil men. And that she has!

The Pontifical Academy of Life which, like the ministries in Orwell's 1984, has become the opposite of its name, recommends a "pardigm shift" in moral teachings. You know -- hate is love, death is life, slavery is freedom, etc. Really, folks, sin is beautiful and we can all be like gods.

As Fr. Jerry Pokorsky writes in Deja Vu All Over Again (sigh) we've been here before. The article begins with an interesting quote from Evalyn Waugh:

When Will Some Courageous Shepherds Just Say NO?

The other night I watched, once again, the 1973 film, The Catholics, with Martin Sheen and Trevor Howard. The title was later changed to Conflict

If you want to understand where we're going, watch the movie. 

Brief synopsis: The Latin Mass has almost disappeared after Vatican IV. A group of Irish monks, however, continue to pray the Latin Mass and, to accommodate the crowds, they say it on a mountain that was once the scene of Masses during Cromwell's persecution. After a news broadcast about the Mass, pilgrims head to Ireland from all over the world to attend the Latin Mass which puts the monks on modern Rome's radar screen.

Are you getting the gist of where I'm going?

Of Pagan Loving Pope Francis and the Carpet Bombing of the Traditional Latin Mass

What a week!  The Holy Father was in Canada participating in pagan ceremonies, while my bishop, Michael Burbidge, was meeting with the priests of the diocese dropping the bomb on the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) in obedience to the pope's apostolic letter, Traditionis Custodes (TC).
