On Saturday, January 21, 2017, some half-a-million women marched on Washington, D.C., while countless others did the same in cities across the globe, “to show [their] presence in numbers too great to ignore.”
Actress, America Ferrera (whoever in the Hell that is) kicked-off the demonstration by reminding the D.C. protesters – the majority of whom were wearing a so-called “pussy hat,” while others either carried signs or donned costumes designed to resemble female genitalia – why they were there:
Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack, and a platform of hate and division [Trump] assumed power yesterday.
Thus reassured of their “dignity” and “character,” off the Vagina Demagogues went a marching!
According to organizers, their central intended message is “women’s rights are human rights,” to which end the demonstrators proposed to “stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.”
The most marginalized? All of us?
Don’t you believe it.
At first blush (first, that is, for those who are not mortally stupid) the identity of the “Exclusive Premier Sponsor” of the event, Planned Parenthood, seems to tell us everything we need to know about where the real impetus for the rally is to be found.
Speaking on the march to the New York Times, Charmaine Yoest, President of Americans United for Life, said for instance:
I don’t think they represent women. I think they are a wholly owned subsidiary of the abortion movement.
Organizers of the event, for all of their duplicity (more on that momentarily), felt no need to deny the allegation.
As reported in the same NY Times story:
If you want to come to the march you are coming with the understanding that you respect a woman’s right to choose. – Linda Sarsour, Co-chairwomen of the Women’s March
Taking the opportunity to editorialize, NY Times writer Sheryl Gay Stolberg suggested that the march is part and parcel of the militant feminist movement (which she prefers to call the “second wave of feminism”) and the “sexual revolution” of the 1960s:
The relationship, and sometimes tension, between reproductive rights and feminism goes back decades, to the inception of so-called second wave feminism in the 1960s; the first wave culminated in women winning the right to vote. Its pioneers, echoing the American left’s fight for racial justice and its opposition to the Vietnam War, embraced the birth control pill as a way to give women more power over their own lives. Thus a sexual revolution was born. – Sheryl Gay Stolberg, NY Times
The “sexual revolution,” in particular as it is epitomized by the supposed right to exterminate one’s own offspring, indeed played a major role in the Women’s March, but that’s only part of the story.
Among the “communities” represented at the march according to its organizers were “immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, and survivors of sexual assault.”
Let’s be clear: The march had nothing whatsoever to do with advocacy for “those of diverse religious faiths” (as every Catholic damn well knows), “Black and Brown people” (the same specifically targeted for slaughter by Margaret Sanger, the Founder of Planned Parenthood), “people with disabilities” (like unborn children diagnosed with Down’s Syndrome, 90% of whom are murdered in utero each year), or “survivors of sexual assault” (just ask the victims of William Jefferson Clinton).
As for the ever-growing alphabet soup of sexual deviance (“LGBTQIA”), most of these poor disordered souls will never be a candidate for abortion, and many a Muslim would sooner toss them off the roof of a four story building than look at them.
Reflecting on this mishmash of bedfellows, one is compelled to ask:
If not exclusively a demand for so-called abortion rights, to what drum beat were the women actually marching?
For an answer, let’s begin by following Sheryl Stolberg’s suggestion with a look back to the 1960s and the sexual revolution.
Though counter-cultural “hippies” are often credited with igniting the sexual revolution in the decade of “free love,” the move toward a society founded upon the denial of objective truth had long since been undertaken.
It was this abandonment of absolute moral norms that paved the way for the “beat generation” to go public with ever more shameless displays of deviancy; only to mature into such modern day abominations as “gay pride parades,” so-called “transgender” bathroom laws, and this past weekend’s Women’s March.
According to some social historians, the sexual revolution began not in the 1960s, but decades earlier.
Between the beginning of World War II in 1941 and the inaugural issue of Playboy in 1953, the overall rate of single motherhood more than doubled. The silent generation may have been silent about what they were doing, but they weren’t all that complacent. (Dr. Alan Petigny, Journal of Social History, Fall 2004)
Other researchers, like Italian philosopher Augusto Del Noce (the late mentor and friend of historian Roberto de Mattei), believe that the roots of the sexual revolution can be traced back much further still; all the way, in fact, to the French Enlightenment and its animus toward the Christianity.
As for the 1960s themselves, surely something changed as this marks the beginning of that time when the hidden sins of men, almost overnight, came to be treated as badges of honor worthy of public display.
Yes, but why then?
Readers of this space know the answer all too well!
This is the very moment in time when the voice of the Holy Catholic Church – she who alone was appointed by Almighty God to baptize and to teach the fullness of truth to the nations – all but abandoned her mission.
– Rather than preaching Good News of the redemption made available only in Christ and the one true Church that He Himself established, our churchmen instead chose to seek and applaud whatever “good” could be found in the multiplicity of world religions; including those that countenance such things as divorce, contraception, homosexual activity and even abortion.
– Rather than proclaiming the Sovereign Rights of Christ the King and the duty of every individual, society and nation toward Him, they asserted the rights of man as based upon human dignity alone; tacitly assenting to the separation of Church and State, thus setting the stage for “Catholic” civil authorities and voters to support intrinsically evil legislation to which they are (allegedly) “personally opposed.”
– Rather than condemning grave error, they opted to pacify both the ignorant and the evil with the “medicine of mercy” and endless dialogue, which is neither merciful nor constructive.
As a result, many in the world today no longer seem to know, or even care to know, the difference between truth and falsehood; in particular as it concerns matters of sexual morality. Indeed, the very concept of objective truth has become foreign to many in this generation!
Ours is an unprecedented age; one wherein sinful men have been left as never before to their own devices by churchmen too caught up in a tryst with the world to be bothered with nurturing them in eternal truth.
From the time of the French Revolution and the Marquis de Sade (whom Del Noce called “the founder of eroticism”) up until the time of the Second Vatican Council, the voice of Holy Mother Church was clear.
Sure, sinful men all-too-often ignored her, but even those who fell still heard her speak even if only in the deepest recesses of their heart; so much so that they simply knew better than to flaunt their transgressions before God and men.
Once our churchmen decided that it was expedient to commingle the truth with error, however, thereby giving one the impression that each has an equal right to be taught, heard, believed and practiced in human society, the fallen nature of humankind urged him not only to gravitate toward the latter with increasing abandon, but also to boast of his debauchery in public.
Long story short; unabated by the grace of God effectively held hostage by faithless men of the Church (including popes), from the 1960s to the present, sin has abounded and exponentially so.
It’s simply a matter of Truth or consequences; when the Truth is not preached with clarity and conviction by those appointed by God to do so, the world will suffer the consequences.
This past Saturday, they were broadcast throughout the world for all to see.
Since then, countless women with intellects duly darkened by sin have taken to social media to offer testimonials of their “amazing experiences” at a demonstration demanding federal funding for the killing of their own unwelcome young under the banner of “Love Trumps Hate.” You can’t dream this stuff up; only the Devil can do that.
The bottom line here is very simple:
The so-called “Women’s March” was truly nothing other than an open act of rebellion against the Author of the Divine Law; a demon-infested parade of lost souls figuratively pointing an accusing finger heavenward while howling “We’ll show you who’s boss!”
This sad state of affairs is not, properly speaking, the fruit of liberal politicians like Barack Obama, social engineers like George Soros, or entertainment industry freaks like “Madonna” (Blessed be Mary, Ever Virgin!); these persons would never have risen to such prominence had the sacred hierarchy of the Holy Catholic Church not rebelled first.
Our Lady warned us at Fatima. We didn’t listen. And now we’re paying the price.
At this, we will give Pope Pius XII the final word:
We see ever more clearly the sacred significance of that consecration of mankind to Christ the King; We see its inspiring symbolism; We see its power to refine and to elevate, to strengthen and to fortify souls. We see, besides, in that consecration a penetrating wisdom which sets itself to restore and to ennoble all human society and to promote its true welfare.
It unfolds itself to Us ever more clearly as a message of comfort and a grace from God not only to His Church, but also to a world in all too dire need of help and guidance: to a world which, preoccupied with the worship of the ephemeral, has lost its way and spent its forces in a vain search after earthly ideals.
It is a message to men who, in ever increasing numbers, have cut themselves off from faith in Christ and, even more, from the recognition and observance of His law; a message opposed to that philosophy of life for which the doctrine of love and renunciation preached in the Sermon on the Mount and the Divine act of love on the Cross seem to be a stumbling block and foolishness.
(Pope Pius XII, On the Unity of Human Society)
If this isn’t demonic infestation, I don’t know what is. Our Lady, Help of Christians, pray for us.
This article ought to be published in every Catholic parish newsletter in the world.
Sadly, it won’t. But, I promise you, Louie, I will spread as far as I can by myself.
This demonic movement has the Hebraics at the head of this revolt. They gave us abortion on demand, they gave us feminism, the sexual revolution, alphabet rights through their masonic puppets and usurious practices. They own the Western World, the USA, Europe…. and they even own the conciliar church through their machinations at conclaves and VII. Read the Jewish Revolutionary Spirit by E Michael Jones and Synagogue Rising by Hugh Akins and know who our overlords are. They despise Western Christian Civilisation. They follow the arch revolutionary. Jn 8:44 The Church rolled over and gave in. It will take divine intervention after we have been punished enough.
I wonder how much honest and unbiased press the January 27th March for Life will get. This annual event is usually ignored or diminished. America has been blessed with a new Pro-Life President. He has already defunded Planned Parenthood International. I haven’t heard Bergoglio praise him for that. Maybe I missed it.
These NWO globalist and Soros et al and Satan-sponsored slave hordes were shrieking their evil just a stone’s throw from my bedroom here in Dublin. Though I’d windows closed and couldn’t distinguish most of their words, I could here the diabolic hatred in their screams and I knew they were evil before I discovered what it was and who was organising and funding them. Blessed Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle, be out safeguard against the wickedness and shares of the Devil . . .
Forgive my ignorance, dear Lynda, but why were they meeting in Dublin?
Was it recently?
Do they more diabolical plans for your beloved homeland?
(which is also the home of my paternal ancestors)
Correction: Do they HAVE more diabolical plans for your beloved homeland?
These people are poor lost souls who are gladly leaping into hell and taking many with them. How many poor, brainwashed youth gladly march with them and wear their disgusting outfits as if it were a mark of honor. Christ knocks on the door of their hearts but they double lock the door and turn up the music. Who cannot see that the remedy, the only remedy that will work, is the triumph of the Immaculate Heart. Our Lady will not be denied. In the meantime, we good Catholics must pray for these lost sheep, that God have mercy on their souls and they wake up and do penance.
The Marxist feminist agenda has infiltrated the Church, typically through various “women’s ministries” groups peppered throughout chanceries nationwide.
For example, on the Diocese of Worcester, Massachusetts website we can find out about the ”Commission for Women.”:
“The Commission for Women of the Diocese of Worcester, MA is an advisory group for the Bishop of Worcester, focusing on issues affecting women in the church and in society. The Commission has conducted a number of educational programs for Catholic women, and has directed studies on women’s issues in the Church and social justice issues. Their signature event is the bi-annual “Gather Us In” Women’s Conference,…”
The September 11 2011 Catholic Free Press, the diocesan news rag, indicated the “Gather Us In” Conference was “co-sponsored by the Bishop of Worcester and the Diocesan Commission for Women”
One of the guest speakers at the conference was Elizabeth Dreyer, a radical feminist theologian who has agitated for a long time in support of women’s ordination while asserting that, “There’s a lot of misogyny and oppression” in the Catholic Church. Ms. Dreyer was one of 16 dissident theologians who signed what is known as The Madeleva Manifesto, ( Marxist feminism wrapped up in some Catholic sounding words) in order for this group to “carry forward the cause of gospel feminism. “ So as you can guess, they are pro women’s ordination, but also secretly pro birth control, and abortion, etc., etc.
These enemies of the faith are allowed to speak to Catholic women at a Diocesan sponsored event, and this goes unchallenged for years, allowing them to spread their poison with the full blessings of the local bishop. Little of what the “Commission for Women” does is remotely Catholic, but more often pagan and materialist.
(This is the same bishop, by the way, that “dis-invited” Mr Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch to come speak at the Worcester Men’s Conferences .)
Peace and blessings,
Michael F Poulin
The demonic aspect of these people is no longer hard to find. A number of the banners were obviously demonic. Very straightforward. One banner was blunt, it said “If Mary had had an abortion, we wouldn’t be in this mess”. The holders laughed uproariously, but will not be laughing once they start rocketing off toward Hell. A banner in Rhode Island said “The devil whispered in our ear, ‘you don’t have strength for the storm’, but I whispered back to the devil, I AM the storm!”. This was not handwritten, it was printed up with care. These deluded people do not see the irony in this at all, and they honestly must believe they are stronger than the devil in their lust for power. What incredible foolishness.
It is reported on Church Militant one sign said “We are Legion”.
Their is no need for subtlety any longer. These women (and delusional men) have an issue with Jesus Christ, and the gloves are off.
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle…
This stuff is all demonic, pure and simple. Those hats the women are all wearing even have room for the little horns.
The NWO globalist tyrants organise these hordes all over the world and again did so on 21st January. I understand these “women marches” took place in a coordinated manner in some 600 cities around the world. The Soros-, Clinton-, Gates-, Feeney-, UN-, EU-, etc., sponsored NWO tyranny has been extremely intense and highly funded and organised here in targetted Ireland for decades – running the campaigns to destroy Faith and basic motals, marriage, family, womanhood and manhood, motherhood and fatherhood, childhood, the sacredness of human life, sexual morality, etc.
The globalist Soros NWO tyranny was behind the introduction of sodomitic relations as “marriage”, the introduction of killing babies in utero if mother claims to be “suicidal”, the sodomitic and filthy sexual subversion for eded to our children in “schools”, etc. they’re the main economic and political force in the current onslaught to legalise the killing of babies in utero generally, and removing the explicit reference in the constitution to us having the same right to life before birth. Ireland was sold out to, taken over by the NWO globalists, UN, EU, etc., decades ago by the so-called political class. It is a slave, a puppet, a prostitute, not a country. Lord, have mercy. God bless.
Incredibly insightful article, Louie.
“…these persons would never have risen to such prominence had the sacred hierarchy of the Holy Catholic Church not rebelled first.”
… AND they changed the Mass.
May God forgive us.
And Our Mother of Mercy, pray for us.
Day One for the novena to Our Lady of Good Success today:
How wretched that they were that close to your home.
You will be in my prayers, dear Lynda.
St. Maria Goretti…pray for us.
St. Mary Magdalene…pray for us.
Thank you for explaining this. I too will be praying for you and Ireland.
I am posting here a good sermon about Maria Goretti. This is the purity we should all pray to have, especially for our children. I thought about her beauty and holiness. Today such modesty and purity rarely exists. She was willing to die rather than compromise her love and obedience to God.
What an absolutely beautiful young girl!
And there’s “The Approach of Midnight”, Ven. Fulton Sheen
They changed the Mass. Did they ever.
Before the changes, Catholics were taught that if you missed the Offertory of the Mass, you had to wait at least until the Offertory of the next Mass to fulfil your Sunday obligation.
They don’t teach that anymore, because it’s a bit hard to be present at the Offertory in the Novus Ordo – because there is no Offertory.
There is no offering of the Divine Victim to begin the Sacrifice; it has been replaced with the “Preparation of the gifts”, which is merely a Jewish grace before meals prayer, babbling about “spiritual drink” or some nonsense.
Therefore, in spite of the good intentions of sincere Catholics trying to do their best, the Novus Ordo does actually not fulfil one’s Sunday obligation.
It is impossible for such an abomination to come from the Catholic Church.
St Agnes, pray for those who marched with Satan on your feast day, that they turn to the Lord and save their souls.
Dear Servant of Our Lady and Cortez, Thank you both very much for your prayers and care. God bless you both and your families. Your sister in Christ Our Saviour, Lynda
Day 2 —— Novena to Our Lady of Good Success
———– AND ———–
In the NO they now say,
“The Mass has ended……”
rather than: “Go. It is the dismissal.”
Horror of horrors!
Aren’t you the person who explained that to us?
Where is the ruling from the Church you’re referring to?
(Now, I and my family stopped attending the NO Rite nearly a decade ago, because it bears heavily the Protestant trappings its created breathed into it, but to assert on your own authority that it can’t meet one’s Sunday Mass obligation is preposterous. What you’re saying is that the Church has failed, which is material heresy. Rather, the correct position is the harmony between the extremes of liberalism and sede vacantism.)
Looks like I’ve made a new friend!
I’m saying that it could not have come from the Church, because the Church cannot lead the faithful into error and away from the Faith. That is not heresy.
To say that the Church could produce something like the Novus Ordo is to say that the Church has failed.
OK, I should say that in my opinion after comparing what the Church used to teach to now, it doesn’t fulfil the Sunday obligation. By God’s grace I will never attend it again, apart from a funeral etc.
I remember posting that somewhere.
The Mass is ended!
They rub our faces in it, one last time, before we go in peace.
So is it a preference for you, rather than a principle, that you do not go to the Ordinary Form, and choose to go to the Extraordinary Form?
Dear Catholic Thinker, I have been thinking that in my zeal to defend the Church I have forgotten humility. One day, and probably sooner than I think, I will appear before the Just Judge and give an account of all my works.
So while I am unable to be at peace with the proposition that the Church can lead the faithful into error and heresy (this makes me particularly angry) I think I need to mortify the desire to come in here and make bold statements, and instead say less, and when I do say something, temper it with the humility that comes from remembering that I will give an account for every idle word.
Please accept my apology for being rude and proud.
Now that I have committed this to writing, I hope I don’t fall, and if I do, it will be my own fault.
Thank you, Papal Subject, for having the courage and humility to make this post. God bless you.
Thank you, Catholic Thinker, for being here to balance things out a bit. I appreciate your posts. God bless you.
It always comes down to this point. In order to protect Bergolio as Pope, how far are you willing to diminish the Papacy. How far are you willing to distort the historical record to find an historical precedent to an heretical Papacy. The counter argument is in order to protect the integrity of the Papacy and the indefectability of the Church, how many popes must be declared anti-popes and which councils must be declared anti-councils. For me its rather simple. Reject everything since V2 and hold fast to tradition, stay close to the Blessed Mother, and fight against the usurpers. But one cannot fight against someone whom one considers your shepard. Its too much of a contradiction.
Friend? No, I’m combatting a troll who turns every post here into sedevacantism.
Your material heresy, which is at least implicit, is denying the perpetual visibility and/or indefectibility of the Catholic Church, which is the specific visible, hierarchical, apostolic Church that Christ founded.
Your “analysis” is full of the gross errors of oversimplification that typical sedevacantism. The Church has not bound anyone to any error.
“To say that the Church could produce something like the Novus Ordo is to say that the Church has failed” – yes, we know that is what you’re saying. You’ve lost faith in the Church. The Body of Christ is bruised and bloodied, almost unrecognizable, just as He was during His passion – this is the Church’s passion. But She is still there for those with eyes to see.
I wish I’d have read this before my prior response, to be honest. Now I look like an ass for calling you a troll, and I can’t edit it!
Thanks. I believe in the Church, and in material resistance to public errors of prelates, and am quite convinced that sedevacantism is a serious error, devoid of logic and leading to spiritual problems – as I’m sure you’ve gleaned.
But it’s a time of immense confusion in the Church, and the fault lies squarely on the shoulders of those “at the top,” suffering from this willful “diabolical disorientation.” They were & are actual popes, which makes things all the worse for them in the end.
You’re revealing your hand as one based on lack of logic and emotion: NO ONE IS ‘PROTECTING’ FRANCIS AS POPE. Where does one get the idea that just recognizing that he *is* the pope is “protection”? On the contrary, as I alluded to above, the fact that he IS indeed the pope will make his punishments all the worse (barring repentance of course) – I don’t think we can imagine them.
Your simplicity has over-extended its bounds to direct contradiction of logic and the teachings of the Church. One can (and must) resist all the errors of the current era without claiming that the Church has completely failed, which is what sedevacantism does.
I’ll stop now instead of running through it all again. And I’ll offer this: I recognize that many sedevacanists are doing their best and are better Catholics than the hordes of neo-catholics who love Pope Francis and everything he does, and have no inkling as to the actual Faith as it was believed & practiced for over 1900 years.
No problem at all. I’ve been at this too hard lately and being a jerk to boot. I deserve to be told. I intend to pull back on the comments. I do turn everything around to one topic, and that’s not balanced.
The Papal Subject is throwing himself on the sword, even though he doesnt need to do so, but his message remains clear.The Catholic Thinker, for whatever reason, continues to tell us that if we reject the vatican 2 religion then Christ’s Catholic Church has failed. This is insanity. The vatican 2 religion is the same as the mormon religion, the baptist religion, the lutheran religion, the jewish religion, the muslim religion, the buddhist religion, the shinto religion, the scientology religion, etc, etc, etc, etc,. It is just one of any other false religion that curses Christ’s One True Catholic Church. The Catholic Church is small in 2017 no doubt, but it is still very much alive. We dont need a heretical “pope” to justify its existence. When did Christ promise us a true pope for all times? He told us His CHURCH would always exist and never fail, but when did this include always having a true pope?
Rich, as usual, is telling us he thinks with his will instead of his intellect.
While it’s clear to all who know the faith that modern churchmen, including the bishops and popes, are materially heterodox in several major areas (liturgy, indifferentism, religious liberty, etc.), this does not mean the Church as a whole is now a different Church.
The best evidence for that is the fact that *these churchmen are not trying to bind anyone to their errors*! A true false church would most *definitely* issue false *dogmas*, but the modern Church does not: The set of defined, de fide teachings is the same as it was in 1958.
And, the promulgating pope himself told us that Vatican II bound no Catholic to any new teaching.
And, it was established as fact (by Pope Benedict XVI’s moto proprio) that, as traditionalists had always maintained, the Novus Ordo Rite of Mass was never promulgated in a binding way in the Latin (or any other) Church, and the Rite of Trent never abrogated.
It is a common theological teaching – in fact, it is de fide as an implicit dogma – that the perpetual visibility of the Catholic Church is one of her attributes, and that once this visibility (especially its formal aspect, meaning it can be identified as the true Church by its Marks) achieves universality in space, that can never be rescinded. In other words, the Church never simply disappear.
Furthermore, there is absolutely no doubt that the sedes cannot point to any *other* body that is now the One, True Church – thus, they resort to the material heresy of the Protestant “invisible Church with visible members.” They really do do this.
These are some of the ways in which sede vacantism leads to material heresy. Sedes don’t have faith in the Church. They can’t see Christ’s Body, bruised and bloodied, in the Church today.
Rich never makes any real response to any of these things – he just keeps making the same simplistic assertions over & over.
