Not polite to evil.
One of the facts of this fallen existence is that bad things happen to good people. Not merely to bad people. Not that this matters: for the current times are more than fallen. They are evil. When you get columnists complaining because the majority of Canadians are decent and support grieving families,
On April 6th, 2018, a bus carrying a junior hockey team from the Canadian province of Saskatchewan was hit by a transport truck, killing 15 young men between the ages of 16 and 20 and injuring many others. Today, the Humboldt crash claimed a 16th victim, a young woman who was travelling with the team as a sport’s therapist.
This crash has struck a deep nerve in Canada because we are such a large, spread out country, and the experience of putting your kids on a bus to travel with a team is virtually universal across the entire country. Almost every parent has quelled their worry and placed their kids in the hands of a driver, often for long journeys of great distance. Losing your child this way, in a terrible traffic accident, is a very Canadian fear, but those bus trips are some of the best experiences of a child’s life, so we all take a deep breath and let them go ….
The Humboldt crash has united Canadian parents in sorrow, and more than 100 000 Canadians have responded to a Go Fund Me page to help support the families of the dead and injured.
Go there to read the whole thing, because woke Journalists hate the idea that the grieving families get support that should go to inciting hatred or setting up elite covens, who must be allowed to prey on others in peace.
Do not expect such to leave the church alone. Expect, instead, to face troubles. For the elite want all bad things to happen to the righteous, even those, such as I, who are only righteous by the work of Christ.
13Now who will harm you if you are eager to do what is good? 14But even if you do suffer for doing what is right, you are blessed. Do not fear what they fear, and do not be intimidated, 15but in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you; 16yet do it with gentleness and reverence. Keep your conscience clear, so that, when you are maligned, those who abuse you for your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame. 17For it is better to suffer for doing good, if suffering should be God’s will, than to suffer for doing evil. 18For Christ also suffered for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, in order to bring you to God. He was put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit, 19in which also he went and made a proclamation to the spirits in prison, 20who in former times did not obey, when God waited patiently in the days of Noah, during the building of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were saved through water. 21And baptism, which this prefigured, now saves you – not as a removal of dirt from the body, but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers made subject to him.
1Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same intention (for whoever has suffered in the flesh has finished with sin), 2so as to live for the rest of your earthly life no longer by human desires but by the will of God. 3You have already spent enough time in doing what the Gentiles like to do, living in licentiousness, passions, drunkenness, revels, carousing, and lawless idolatry. 4They are surprised that you no longer join them in the same excesses of dissipation, and so they blaspheme. 5But they will have to give an accounting to him who stands ready to judge the living and the dead. 6For this is the reason the gospel was proclaimed even to the dead, so that, though they had been judged in the flesh as everyone is judged, they might live in the spirit as God does.
Now, there are many who say that this place is hateful, and then double down. They find those who do not practice dissipation, who live as Christ commands, hateful. Who would import a new people, and then corrupt them. Who hate a true church, and demand we listen to false teachers, and the antichrists in the skinsuits of bishops.
Such will ensure that we suffer. And such need to be told they are in error. Plainly. For one is not polite to evil.
Francis has lost face because we, the Catholic people, have started saying it like it is, without the filters of the traditional mass communication media. We have just demolished his narrative. In time, this explosion of popular discontent became impossible to ignore for those very magazines and newspapers who had tried to insist on the usual, sugarcoated, ultimately fake representation of the situation on the ground. We, not they, have always represented the situation on the ground, and our scandal and outrage could freely express itself through the Internet. Paul VI was politely criticised for fifteen years by the same journalists and scholars and (rare) bishops, and his papacy got away with all his antics with nothing more than a couple of scratches. This time is different. We, the people, have a sensus catholicus much better than that.
It has happened to Catholics what has happened to Trump supporters: they have emerged as a powerful, vocal force for change exactly because they have refused to bow to the usual rules of polite non-communication. And they have been picked up by the traditional media when it has become impossible to ignore them any longer.
Francis makes my blood, and the blood of many of us, boil. Not because of personal animosity against the man (he has never spitted me in the face, or tried to touch me inappropriately), but because of what he is doing to Christ and His Church. I will not be silent, and I will not sugarcoat the scandal the man is creating.
Let him who thinks that being polite to the Pope comes before saying things as they sadly are stay away from this blog, and from the many others which choose to expose the satanical energy emanating from this Papacy in the same way. They will have to click away a lot, and will discover that they have closed themselves in a bubble of politeness that is, ultimately, a fantasy world compared to the very real outrage this pontificate is causing.
Be prepared to let your status go. Be prepared to walk away. Be prepared to watch that which you have spent years working to build up fail, for the new managers are more interested in diversity than doing good. Their virtue signals are more important than defending the nation, building houses, treating people, and keeping the peace.
I note that no modern politician would have the courage to bring in a quarantine, as Cuba did when the HIV crisis hit.
But the elite can afford a fantasy. The rest of us have to live with the truth. That our actions have consequences, and that we will have to give account for this life.
So in this life, in this time, be a witness for Christ. Use words when necessary. And let not the demands that we are polite to those who are evil compromise you.
For we are not to be like them.
