Gays infect everyone like a putrid fever. For the health of the Catholic Church, the clergy must be bled.

One suggestion is that a gay priest who is outed must be quickly defrocked and excommunicated for lying and gaining ordination unlawfully.

On the other hand, if it’s true that 80% of the Vatican officialdom are gay, then no reform is likely possible.

There is another possibility. Gays may seek ordination in the Catholic Church precisely because they hate the Church and seek to discredit it. Frank Bruni continues:

I’m supposed to cheer, right? I’m an openly gay man. I’m a sometime church critic.

Hooray for the exposure of hypocrisy in high places and the affirmation that some of our tormentors have tortured motives.

Thank heaven for the challenge to their moral authority.

Bruni thus admits that he’d like the Church to lose its moral authority. He does not appreciate being called out as a sinner. He wants his poison to be happily approved by all. No “torment” for Bruni — God forbid someone opines that there is something wrong with it, after all!

It should be obvious that the proposition “Homosexuality is a vice” cannot be proven false by observing that the person uttering it is himself gay. “Murder is wrong” remains true even if asserted by a murderer.

In fact, if gays themselves condemn homosexuality, this sends a powerful message that not even people whose minds may be clouded by sin need to make intellectual errors. “The cardinals most accepting of gays, [the book’s author] said, are those who are probably straight.”

The crucified repentant criminal said,

And indeed, we have been condemned justly, for the sentence we received corresponds to our crimes, but this man has done nothing criminal. (Lk 23:41)

Thieves today cannot argue that the moral prohibition of theft has been “challenged,” because the person voicing approval of this rule in the Bible himself was guilty of stealing.

Hypocrisy is indeed a tribute that vice pays to virtue.

In becoming priests of the Catholic Church, gays “weren’t pulling off some elaborate ruse or looking for the clerical equivalent of a bathhouse,” says Frank Bruni.

I think that’s exactly what they are looking for. The Catholic Church explicitly does not want gay priests. It’s a private organization whose rules forbid ordaining such men.

So, gays lie to get ordained. Why? They must view the Church as a giant gay bar, a convenient homosexual meeting place.

“Catholic priests are twisted characters. And gay men are creatures of stealth and agents of deception who band together in eccentric societies with odd rituals,” Bruni goes on.

Exactly.

I can’t even vouch that these guys believe in God. It’s just a good job with lots of sex as a bonus for them. Monstrous!

“Seven officers opened fire toward the store — a total of 42 shots within 11 seconds, the police said. …

“When the barrage of gunfire ended, two men lay bleeding on the sidewalk outside the store.

“Neither was the robber.

“They were brother officers, struck in a crossfire of police bullets. One of them, a veteran detective, Brian Simonsen, died from his wounds.”

Eh, good enough for government work.

Are entrepreneurs heroic and rugged wealth creators, or

fat, soft, and cowardly weaklings ripe for the plucking by mighty conquerors and expropriators?

St. Thomas considers an objection in his discussion of suicide:

“Further, it is lawful, for one who exercises public authority, to kill evil-doers.

“Now he who exercises public authority is sometimes an evil-doer.

“Therefore he may lawfully kill himself.” (ST, II-II, 64, 5, objection 2)

Good one.

“Might is thus not a physical and tangible thing, but a moral and spiritual phenomenon.

“A king’s might rests upon the recognition of the monarchical ideology on the part of his subjects.” (HA, 188)

Jesus would not presume to be your Lord, unless you first acknowledge Him to be such.

Ocasio-Cortez is talking about a socialist revolution, and all her opponents manage by way of reply is, “We can’t afford it.”

I disagree: the Pentagon has more than enough bullets to murder every dissenter. And it cannot be affirmed of a corpse that it can’t afford something, now can it?

Besides, there are too many people in America to survive under Sandy’s enviro-socialism, anyway.

When this girl is done with us, 95% of the population will simply starve to death.

I’ll take my chances with the climate, thank you.

For that reason, I also encourage the parasitic class to oppose Ocasio-Cortez.

The parasites need the host alive and reasonably vigorous. It must be “moving” so that they can “tax” it.

Sandy’s designs would destroy the host economy. The parasites will die along with it.

I am right now being an efficiency expert for the state. Even the state and its connected interests will lose, and greatly, from her planned atrocities.

Status quo now! Can the conservatives at least manage that?

Ocasio-Cortez is popular because she claims to be for the people, claims to listen to them and act in their interests.

No self-respecting congressman cares what the people think. He is only for the lumpen-proletarians, crony capitalists, and Pentagon generals.

It’s terrifying and dismaying, of course — Sandy’s idealism is invested only in ignorance and evil.

Nevertheless. The people like the attention from her.

No socialist has ever wanted to live in a socialist society run by someone who was not him.

Every socialist, in constructing his central plan, imagines that he will be the one implementing it.

The plan of every other socialist, he firmly believes, is false and counterfeit.

In the end, either Bernie will liquidate Sandy, or Sandy will liquidate Bernie. In the struggle for the rank of supreme autocrat, there can be only one man left standing.
