Cardinals Burke and Brandmuller send open letter to the bishops

The National Catholic Register has produced and commented on an Open Letter by Cardinals Burke and Brandmuller addressed to the bishops attending the summit on clerical sexual abuse. Their message is ‘End the conspiracy of silence’. The key paragraphs are:

The Catholic world is adrift, and, with anguish, the question is asked: Where is the Church going?

Before the drift in process, it seems that the difficulty is reduced to that of the abuse of minors, a horrible crime, especially when it is perpetrated by a priest, which is, however, only part of a much greater crisis. The plague of the homosexual agenda has been spread within the Church, promoted by organized networks and protected by a climate of complicity and a conspiracy of silence. The roots of this phenomenon are clearly found in that atmosphere of materialism, of relativism and of hedonism, in which the existence of an absolute moral law, that is without exceptions, is openly called into question.

Sexual abuse is blamed on clericalism. But the first and primary fault of the clergy does not rest in the abuse of power but in having gone away from the truth of the Gospel. The even public denial, by words and by acts, of the divine and natural law, is at the root of the evil that corrupts certain circles in the Church.

Traditionalist commentators of the summit

There is an increasing number of conservative and traditionalist Catholics commenting on the quagmire of clerical sexual abuse through dedicated websites and youtube channels. They form a professional alternative media. They are not to be taken lightly. Indeed, they are part of a larger and developing body of conservative individuals and groups taking attention (and revenue) away from mainstream media instruments that have become lazy and sloppy (apart from deceitful) in their investigations and reports.

Of the Catholic websites and youtube channels, I highly recommend Church Militant, The Remnant, Taylor Marshall, Patrick Coffin, Rorate Caeli, OnePeterFive, LifeSite, and Return to Tradition.

I will be following the Vatican summit and posting the daily reports of Michael Matt of the Remnant and Michael Voris of Church Militant. Both are articulate, succinct, sound in their judgment, and unafraid of telling it like it is.

Clerical Sexual abuse – what the media won’t touch

This morning (22 Feb) I watched the report on Holland’s public broadcaster (NOS) about the opening of the Vatican summit dealing with clerical sexual abuse of minors (via satellite). The reporter puffed to bursting with indignation and adopting the manner of a North Korean newsreader laid into the Catholic Church.

There was no end to the evil of that malignant organisation whose desecration of children went back ‘perhaps’ centuries. Nothing had changed, she said, indirectly suggesting the clerical sexual abuse would end when the Church was destroyed. In a way, the reporter can’t be blamed for her manner and the distortions, even falsehoods, of her report. A fierce incorrigible anti-Catholic bigotry has long seized the low countries. She wouldn’t dare departing from the national narrative.

Establishing an Islamic nation and government within Australia

‘Islamic Fears’

Everywhere around the Western world where Muslims have settled you find deliberate cultural segregation over which the Islamic leaders maintain de facto Sharia law. The female dress of the Niqab and Burka, both repugnant to the Western mind, is the most defying symbol of the segregation.

The evidence of Islamic politico-cultural separation is most blatant in France, Sweden, Germany, Britain and Holland. There are no-go districts in France and Germany that are dangerous for the non-Muslim to enter.
