SYNOD PROPOSES NEW AMAZONIAN RITE TO ORDAIN WOMEN AND MARRIED MEN

VATICAN (ChurchMilitant.com) – Synod fathers are proposing the creation of an “Amazonian Rite” that will allow the ordination of women to the diaconate and married men to the priesthood.

On Friday, the Vatican published summaries of the synod fathers’ small circle working groups, with cardinals grouped according to language. The majority of working groups did not mention an Amazonian rite, female ordination or married priests, but a vocal minority, involving Italian Groups A and B, Portuguese Groups A and B and Spanish Groups C and D, promoted some or all of these ideas.

Italian Group A, moderated by Bp. Flavio Giovenale, proposed ordaining women as acolytes: “We propose that the ministry of lector and acolyte also be conferred to women, religious or lay, adequately trained and prepared.”

Portuguese Group A stressed that new paths for ordained ministries are “necessary and urgent” and the ordination of women would give “a feminine and maternal face to the Church.”

Italian Group B stressed that the new rite should be allowed to develop its own spirituality, theology, liturgy and discipline based on the “singular richness of the Catholic Church in the Amazonia.”

Quo Vadis Pope Francis?

This last week, those who have been following the Amazon Synod in the Vatican were exposed to a pagan Mother Earth ritual in the Vatican gardens with Pope Francis and sundry prelates looking on approvingly. If that enthronement of the Goddess was not enough, we now receive news that a banner featuring a naked Amazon native breastfeeding what appears to be a weasel (below) is hanging prominently in the church of Santa Maria in Traspontina . John Henry Western comments on the horror on the LifeSite website.

The banner features in the video below where the breast-sucking animal and the rest of the banner are shown more graphically. The Salette apparitions claimed the Vatican would be become the seat of the anti-Christ. And so it has in the form of the Goddess and Mother Earth.

‘Confronting Toxic Femininity’

Michael Voris of Church Militant does not mince words. He reminds me of those Franciscan friars who went around parishes giving missions. They were the fire and brimstone preachers of fifty years ago.

In video his ‘Confronting Toxic Femininity‘, Voris focuses on the difference between men and women and their response to moral and social issues. Men, he says, have the inclination to assess the truth of the issue; women have the inclination to let their feelings rather than cool objective assessment govern their first reaction. Compassion and sympathy are the best qualities of the female. But, says, Voris, when women let just their feelings determine their reaction to social issues, they degenerate into toxic femininity where truth is abandoned.

I must give a trigger warning about the verbal aggression that will disturb some in the watching. Watch it at your own risk.

‘Witchcraft is the tool of the oppressed

On the Acton Institute Powerblog , Rev Ben Johnson made comment about an article appearing on the Real News Network, ‘Witchcraft, Anarchy and the rise of the Left Tube.’ The article was about Angie Speaks, a ‘libertarian socialist’ who encourages socialists to use ‘witchcraft, spells and hexes’ against the free market.

The article is entertaining for what a crackpot leftist has to say about the Marxist struggle against capitalism. My attention, however, focused on Speaks’ assertions about the influence of the occult and witchcraft. Those who have read my two novels in the Winterbine series (a third novel due early 2020) know that Gnosticism and the occult feature in the story, particularly in its influence among feminists and radicalised Catholic nuns. Here are a few pertinent passages:

Angie Speaks asks the workers of the world to unite around their Himalayan salt lamps.

“Witchcraft is the tool of the oppressed class,” Angie affirms during the Real News interview, in which the camera captures what appears to be a witchcraft altar next to her bed.

“Do you think engaging with Earth goddess religious traditions could vitalize the Left?” asks interviewer Taya Graham.

Speaks says she has found that paganism enhances her political struggle.

“There’s a lot of truth to be unearthed within spirituality, especially because spiritual traditions have always been linked to the fight against capitalism and the fight against coercive systems,” spake Speaks.

In her telling, slaves in the New World who were oppressed by Church and State, turned to “things like Santeria, things like Vodun [voodoo], or here things like Wicca, which has a very strong through line with women’s movements and feminism. It was sort of a reservoir of strength and a reservoir of all the things needed to keep one’s soul intact.”

The march of cultural Marxism in Catholic schools

It is an ironic coincidence that I came across a Cath News report about four Catholic girls’ schools in Brisbane dumping traditional language to adopt inclusive language in religious matters directly after posting my review of INFILTRATION: THE PLOT TO DESTROY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FROM WITHIN.

The great big thicked-soled jackboots of cultural Marxism have clearly stomped their way into Catholic education.

The schools reportedly dumping traditional Church language and adopting ‘inclusive’ language are All Hallows’ School Brisbane, Loreto College Coorparoo, St Rita’s College Clayfield and Stuartholme School Toowong. These are the smartest Catholic schools that parents can send their daughters to. The privilege would cost them buckets of money.

The rise and rise of virulent anti-white racism

No one should miss Jennifer Oriel’s commentaries in the Australian. Here’s her latest 5 Nov 2018. It’s too important to remain behind a paywall.

FIRE-BREATHING SISTERS JUST TRUMP THEIR OWN GENDER
Stupid, brainless and servile. It’s how the American sisterhood describes women who vote Republican. Ahead of the US mid-term elections, left-wing sexism has reached fever pitch. While claiming to support women’s right to vote, the Left has subjected women who vote right to dehum­anisation, public shaming and mis­ogyny. White women are bearing the brunt of the Left’s hate speech as desperate Democrats try to coerce conformity among female freethinkers.

Shortly after the 2016 US election, pundits revealed a shocking truth: millions of women had voted freely, and had freely chosen Donald Trump for president. Exit polls revealed white women were the culprits. Supposed progressives responded with vile speech about Republican women the content of which rivalled the sexist diatribes 19th-century men used to silence the suffragettes. Like the suffragettes, women who vote conservative are deemed too stupid to vote rationally.

What is MGTOW?

The ‘Men Going Their Own WAY’ movement, at least the current social expression, has its origins in the early 2000s. It has only come up on my radar recently – say, in the last twelve months. Then, again, I only twigged to the rampant anti-white racism around the same time.

MGTOW seems allied to Men’s Rights Activism (MRA).  A number of popular US (female) youtubers are pleading the cause of men’s disadvantage in our thoroughly feminised society while Bettina Arndt seems to be the only Australian dealing with it. She has an embarrassing sympathy for the complaints of MRAs and MGTOWs.

It is Karen Straughn, though, who best articulates men’s disadvantages – the law is stacked against them, for a start. Her ‘Reponse to Jordan Peterson’s comments on MGTOW’ is a compelling presentation, informative right to the last minute.

Men are not marrying – why?

Karen Straughn is a popular youtuber who talks about men and their place in modern (feminist) society. An attempt in 2012 to explain why men are retreating from (feminized) society and avoiding marriage has drawn 1.9 million views and 33,000 comments. Her views are not what your average finger-wagging feminist wants to hear, and what should frighten the life out of the average young woman who wants it all, including marrying a reliable man and having children.
