Drudge and The Daily Beast Post TFP Cult Intrigue: Why?

Every now and then an article is of interest not so much for its content, but for the reason of its publication. To my mind, this is one such article. While the TFP cult story is interesting, so is its appearance on the Drudge Report.

The headline and subhead in the article at The Daily Beast
This Secret Catholic Exorcist Cult in Brazil Is Making a Deal with the Devil –
The Vatican is looking into a group of exorcists who apparently made a pact with Satan on climate change and the death of Pope Francis

reveal that the author doesn’t know much about exorcisms or “pacts” with Satan, but wants to catch your attention. There is, to be sure, some scary stuff going on in the TFP remnant in Brazil. Links to articles by the Italian journalist Andrea Tornielli provide a more Catholic analysis of the issues, and these are presented below. read more

First they came for the wedding planners and the bakers. Then they came for the Catholic farmers and the Baptist high school valedictorians. And now, the secularists are coming after the evangelical public servants.

On Wednesday, Russell Vought, President Trump’s nominee to be deputy director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, was viciously attacked by Sen. Bernie Sanders over his Christian faith. read more

The Catholic Action League of Massachusetts today is criticizing the Bay State’s four Catholic bishops for imposing an immediate ban on signature gathering on church property. The likely target of this decision, and the one to suffer the most deleterious impact, is an initiative petition campaign sponsored by two pro-life organizations, the Massachusetts Alliance To Stop Taxpayer Funded Abortion and the Renew MA Coalition. read more

Yesterday marked the official start of the holiday. Ours too of course, but I’m talking about Ramadan, the Muslims most holy holiday. It began at 6:00 PM.

To celebrate we grilled up some succulent BBQ pork ribs,

smothered in delicious Montgomery Inn Barbecue Sauce. (Which I used to have no problem finding around here until Kroger bought out our local gourmet grocery store and they stopped carrying it. So if anyone lives near Montgomery, OH…I need more sauce!) And we washed it all down with lots of good old American beer. [more photos at the link] read more

Greek Orthodox Bishop Calls on Turkey’s Erdogan to Convert or Face ‘Unending Hell’ With Muhammed

[Let’s see if Rome chimes in on this. If they do, will they 1) Insist that Muslims can be saved, or 2) Proclaim that the Catholic Church is the One True Church, not the schismatic Easterners?]

Michael W. Chapman, May 3, 2017

The Greek Orthodox bishop, Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus, sent a lengthy letter to Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in which he detailed some of the differences between Christianity and Islam and called on Erdogan to convert to Orthodoxy or face “eternal and unending” suffering in Hell, along with Muhammed and his followers. read more

Bill to Avoid Shutdown Funds Planned Parenthood Through September

by Dr. Susan Berry, 1 May 2017

Bipartisan congressional negotiators agreed Sunday to fund Planned Parenthood through September in a $1.070 trillion package that would help Congress avoid a so-called “government shutdown.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said the agreement reflects the principles of his party.

“This agreement is a good agreement for the American people, and takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table,” Schumer said, reports The Hill. “The bill ensures taxpayer dollars aren’t used to fund an ineffective border wall, excludes poison pill riders, and increases investments in programs that the middle-class relies on, like medical research, education, and infrastructure.” read more

TANTA, Egypt (AP) — Bombs exploded at two Coptic churches in different cities in northern Egypt as worshippers were celebrating Palm Sunday, killing at least 43 people and wounding about 100 in an assault claimed by the Islamic State group.

The blasts came at the start of Holy Week leading up to Easter, and just weeks before Pope Francis is due to visit the Arab world’s most populous country, which has been beset by extremist violence against its minority Christians. read more

Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade “Straightens Up”

ALLIED WAR VETERANS COUNCIL REFUSES TO ALLOW HOMOSEXUAL GROUP TO MARCH IN BOSTON’S SAINT PATRICK’S DAY PARADE

C. J. Doyle, March 8, 2017
Catholic Action League

Last night, by a vote of 11 to 4, the Allied War Veterans Council of South Boston—the organizers of Boston’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade—refused to permit the homosexual group OUTVETS to march in the 2017 parade, which will be held on Sunday, March 19th.

On February 15th, the Irish Echo newspaper reported that the two homosexual activist groups which marched in the 2015 and 2016 parades, Boston Pride and OUTVETS, had failed to apply for this year’s parade. Boston Pride issued a statement over the weekend citing “other priorities.” OUTVETS, an organization which had no corporate existence prior to Boston Mayor Marty Walsh’s decision to reopen the parade controversy in 2014, issued a statement today asserting that they “assumed” the veterans council vote was because of their LGBT status. read more

Gay is OK? Breitbart.com’s once beloved pet fag Milo: Older men “help provide love” to younger boys; Admits being abused by a priest

“In the homosexual world, particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men — the sort of ‘coming of age’ relationship — those relationships in which those older men help those young boys discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable, sort of rock, where they can’t speak to their parents.” -Milo

Breitbart.com‘s effort to normalize queerdom in the conservative movement blew up in their faces yesterday. The news site, otherwise one of my favorites, set up the admitted queer Milo Yiannopoulos with his own special lavender headlines and his task to upset liberals. None of their other writers get special color headlines. It’s been a bizarre shtick, especially because the site is ostensibly conservative, and most conservatives are pro-family and opposed to queerdom. The gig is now up as it turns out that Milo is a proponent of homos grooming young men into that hideous “lifestyle.” In other words, Milo is a mainstream faggot, but nobody’s supposed to say exactly what that entails. Milo resigned from Breitbart today. read more

After 6,000 Exorcisms, Priest Says ‘The Devil Is Afraid of Me’


[Cassock? –Cyprian nasty comment]

by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D., ex-Maciel cult [another Cyprian nasty comment]
Original article: Hoy Los Angeles (Spanish), Jan. 8

A Mexican priest who has performed more than 6,000 exorcisms in his 40-year career says that he does not fear the devil, because the devil is afraid of him.

In a recent interview, exorcist Father Francisco López Sedano insisted that the devil exists and that he is not a mere personification of evil but an actual being. “Jesus often confronted Satan himself and spoke with him,” he said. “You do not talk with a thing, you talk to a person.” read more

In a new interview, the Pope warns that populism in a time of crisis is what led to the rise of Hitler and urges dialogue.

On the heels of the presidential inauguration, Pope Francis has said he is taking a “wait and see” attitude about President Donald Trump and wants to deal with “specifics” before making a judgment on the new leader of the free world. read more

Pope Francis meets with Mahmoud Abbas as the Palestinian Embassy to the Holy See is inaugurated

The 20-minute meeting was held in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. For Abbas, the pontiff “loves the Palestinian people and loves peace.” He hopes that other countries will follow the Holy See and recognise Palestine as “an independent state.” Concerns remain over the Holy Places. The Middle East Peace Conference starts tomorrow in Paris. Abbas criticises Trump for his statements on Jerusalem. read more
