MID-TERM REPORT REGARDING THE EXTRAORDINARY SYNOD ON THE FAMILY AS EXPRESSED BY A GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF EXTRAORDINARY FAGGOTS: ANNOTATIONS AND CLARIFICATIONS FOR YOUR EDIFICATION
1. During the prayer vigil held in St Peter's Square on 4 October 2014 in preparation for the Synod on the family, Pope Francis [aka "the South American Scourge of God"] evoked the centrality of the experience of

It is also the weightiest hour for one whothe unrepentant Sodomite in the Church who finds himself face to face with his own lonelinessdepravity, in the bitter twilight of shattered dreams and broken plans and old age, invigorated only fleetingly with vague remembrances of the glorious Council from 1962 to 1965; how many peoplefaggot clergy trudge through the day in the blind alley of resignation, of abandonment, even resentment: in in how many homesrectories the wine of joysupply of young boys has been less plentiful, and therefore, also the zest — the very wisdominclination — for lifeabomination ...

Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no sense. We need to get to know each other, listen to each other and improve our knowledge of the world around us... This is important: to get to know people, listen, expand the circle of ideas.
Pope Francis (interview w/Eugenio Scalfari, La Repubblica, 1 October 2013)
You see, ladies and gentlemen - look what happened to SS. Gabriel Lalemant and Jean de Brebeuf, those so-called "North American Martyrs", after they proselytized to the genteel Iroquois. They were tortured, stoned, scalped, mutilated with knives, their necks seared with "red hot" tomahawk collars, they received mock baptisms with boiling water, then burned at the stake. Good grief. You don't want this to happen to you, do you? Who were they to judge? Those stupid saints, they deserved to be slaughtered. Who cares that these "ideological Christians" were the vanguard of Catholics to spark the Faith in Canada, eventually to spread throughout North America. Why were they so critical of Indian paganism? It was "solemn nonsense" that they attempted to convert those noble savages. What a waste of time. Too bad Francis was not around in the seventeenth century. Otherwise, Gabe and Jean would have gotten to know the Iroquois, listened to them, then expanded the circle of their ideas. "Solemn nonsense" was Christ's command: "you, therefore, must go out, making disciples of all nations, and baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all the commandments which I have given you" (Matthew 28:19-20).
And what about this miserable "old maid"...
St. Teresa Benedicta (1891-1942)
Look at her - a "sourpuss", a "long-faced, mournful funeral Christian". That expression does not convey gravitas, of someone in deep mystical union with Christ, but - as Pope Francis tells us - just of a "religious [with] a heart as sour as vinegar". Who cares that St. Teresa was intellectually brilliant, a philosopher, doing her doctoral dissertation under the German phenomenologist Edmund Husserl. She dropped it all, including her Jewish religion, converted to Catholicism, then became a Carmelite nun. She even wrote an insipid book called Studies on John of the Cross: The Science of the Cross. Hilarious! And what did all of these eventually get her? Murdered in a gas chamber at a Nazi concentration camp. What a "sad Christian", what a "querulous and disillusioned pessimist", one of those "people without light - real downers". Just another stupid saint.
Then there is St. Thérèse of Liseux, the so-called "Little Flower". Look at this corny, over-the-top image of the child Thérèse in prayer whilst on her mummy's lap...That is so phoney and ridiculous. Instead, we should listen to Pope Francis so as to shun such portrayals of hypocrisy and inauthenticity. As he said: "they disguise themselves as good people: they make themselves up like little holy cards, looking up at heaven as they pray, making sure they are seen - they believe they are more righteous than others, they despise others". That's right, Holy Father, those Catholics hate everyone. Thank you for affirming aloud a thought that was running through my head for years. Now look below, even more of this idealized "little holy card" posturing by the "Little Flower"...
St. Thérèse Liseux (1873-1897)
What a stupid saint. Pope Francis smartly counsels us against such Catholic romanticism by reference to a discredited psychologist and charlatan: "Sigmund Freud used to say... that in every idealisation there is an attack". Awesome stuff, Holy Father, you must be reading Ron Rolheiser. And lest us not forget St. Therese's parents...
Bl. Marie-Azélie Martin (1832-1877) and Bl. Louis Martin (1823-1894)
Clearly, what we have here is "Mr. and Mrs. Whiner". Imagine those two at a party? How depressing. Wonder what the topic of conversation would have been? Devotion to the Sacred Heart? Proper protocol when confessing sins to a priest? Meatless Fridays? That they had five daughters who were all nuns? Too bad Zélie was not more outgoing, that she was so "afraid to dance, to cry, afraid of everything". Ah, the fun that would have been had, because she was so darn cute. Look closely, at her faux couture clothing, at her hair tightened into a constricting bun. Symbolic, yes? Of what, you ask? Answer: of her inwardist psychological repression desperately seeking relief. Notice that combined distressed goddess/naughty librarian look about her, which I find to be so magnetic, so sexy, so delicious. Nonetheless, thank goodness for His Holiness in that he warns us enlightened moderns that such "older people [were] nostalgic for structures and customs which are no longer life-giving in today’s world". We do not want that. Thus, with such profound Peronist insights we can confidently infer that Louis and Zélie were "starched Christians, too polite, who speak of theology calmly over tea". Borrrrrriiiinnnngggggg. Avoid such Catholics at all costs.
Here is yet another one of those stupid saints who "make themselves up like little holy cards, looking up at heaven as they pray". May I introduce to you...
St. Jean Marie Baptiste Vianney, the Curé D'Ars (1786-1859)
Ever read a hagiography on this buffoon? What pious baloney. Allegedly, his diet regimen consisted of only a potato a day and he regularly suffered from physical attacks by the Devil. He spent up to 18 hours per day in the confessional. Moreover, Vianney refused to give absolution if the penitent did not stop dancing when at the local tavern! What a "rigid Christian", "afraid to dance, to cry, afraid of everything". Using the Holy Father's most excellent example, we must remember that dance forms an important component of the liturgy, especially The Tango. Who cares that Vianney was responsible for thousands upon thousands of French Catholics returning to the Faith after the French Revolution's devastating assault upon the Catholic Church. Who cares that thousands of pilgrims from around the globe came to see him. Who cares that he performed miracles, or that he healed the sick, or that he could read souls instantaneously, or that he possessed Heaven-infused knowledge of the past and future. Look at him now, he's a "museum mummy"...Now we come to perhaps the most stupidest type of saint in the litany of saints - that is, the "Rosary-bead counters". Perhaps the most famous of these types in recent times was Padre Pio...
St. Pio of Pietrelcina (1887-1968)
Often, did he recount the count of his beads. For example, "Today I said 32 or 33 rosaries. Maybe 1 or 2 more". Is that not funny? I want to laugh uproariously whenever reading such infantilism. But as Pope Francis wisely tells us, "it is not to laugh at". It's more than acceptable - indeed, it is laudatory - in today's antinomian post-Conciliar climate to be smugly dismissive, condescending or insulting to those plebeian Catholics with their quaint devotions to the Most Holy Mother God.
So, then: to all you papalotrers, ultramontanists and Vatican II cultists out there, to all my beloved excuse mongers and deniers of the obvious and ignorers of the elephant in the room, to all you smiley face salesmen apologists and social justice Marxists, to all you pewsitter parasites populating the Magic Circle, hear me now: Let us never ever disremember those most sacred, dogmatic, Magisterial, Holy Spirit inspirited words of our pope:
The most serious of the evils that afflict the world these days are youth unemployment and the loneliness of the old... This, to me, is the most urgent problem that the Church is facing.
Viva la revolución !

Message of Pope Francis to Muslims Throughout the World for the End of Ramadan ('Id Al-Fitr)
To Muslims throughout the World,
It gives me great pleasure to greet you as you celebrate 'Id al-Fitr', so concluding the month of Ramadan...
I am aware that family and social dimensions enjoy a particular prominence for Muslims during this period, and it is worth noting that there are certain parallels in each of these areas with Christian faith and practice...
Turning to mutual respect in interreligious relations, especially between Christians and Muslims, we are called to respect the religion of the other, its teachings, its symbols, its values...
It is clear that, when we show respect for the religion of our neighbours or when we offer them our good wishes on the occasion of a religious celebration, we simply seek to share their joy, without making reference to the content of their religious convictions...
Finally, I send you my prayerful good wishes, that your lives may glorify the Almighty and give joy to those around you.
Happy Feast to you all!
TH2: A detailed comment made on this post by Pater Ignotus shows extraordinary insight and erudition, warranting addition to the main body...
In view of all that is happening in the world thanks to the followers of the "religion of peace" and the "joy" that they are giving to those around them, to quote the Pope, it may be a good exercise to consider whether the tips that the pope provides are applicable in situations where the followers of Mohammed the prophet of Islam are in the majority. It might be in everyone's best interests if Catholics endeavored to establish the social kingship of Christ since such an effort would benefit everyone without distinction; but Catholics are obliged to obey the Pope and so I will do my best to assess the viability of these tips in the world as it is. Thanks to the marvels of the internet, if one is assiduous enough, it is possible to know what is actually taking place in the umma.
1. Live and let live. This presupposes a golden rule of sorts; and contrary to what years of religious relativism have attempted to inculcate, there is No golden rule in Islam. The whole point of Islam is to subjugate, denigrate and exploit the kuffar (i.e. nonbelievers) and yes, to kill them. If you don't believe this, ask the Christians in Iraq or Syria or Pakistan, or the Yazidis in Iraq. They are the most recent recipients of Islamic attention. It is hard to live when your neighbours want you dead and in hell.
2. Be giving of yourself to others. This sounds so good but again it depends what you are giving. You see, under Islamic rule, a nonbeliever has no choice. You have to give and give some more. It's called jyzia, a tax imposed on subdued peoples. The mob calls this protection money and so it begs the question: protection from whom? Revisionists would have us believe that historically, Islamic rule was one great meeting of the United Nations but reality begs to differ. You give, they take; and since you are forced to give it really isn't up to you. But that's exactly as it should be because there is no free will in Islam. That's why the Islamic world never blames anyone for their failed states.
3. Proceed calmly in life. Now this tip is a difficult one to practise even in a country where Muslims are a minority. Just ask the Israelis. It's rather difficult to proceed calmly with rockets raining down compliments of Hamas, Iran, Qatar and every other sponsor of terrorism. It's difficult to be calm when a charge of blasphemy or forced conversion is just around the corner. Pakistan could teach us a thing or two about this. Given the state of affairs, it's even difficult for a Muslim to do this. Assuming you want to take a walk with your wife or one of your wives. You might run into those intrepid mujahadin or your friendly morality police officer and you are told that the veil covering her face is not good enough. Or you have to produce your marriage licence. What if you took the wrong licence? It's not worth the hassle so you stay home and now your cholesterol count goes up because you are a couch potato.
4. Have a healthy sense of leisure. This is no problem if you are living off the jyzia provided by the kuffar but it's nearly impossible if you are on the paying end of things. The Ayatollah Khomeini said that there is no fun in Islam so if you happen to be knee deep in Shiites, as it were, this too is difficult. Leisure presupposes calm so this too is difficult.
5. Sunday is for families. This one should be easy but since Friday is the Muslim day of rest one has to make do with Friday. The problem however, is that Friday is when male congregants make their way to the mosque and the imams whip them up for some good old kuffar bashing expeditions, or the not so odd suicide bombing and so it is probably better to stay home. The Christians in Nigeria, thanks to the homicidal Boko Haram 'Boys', can tell us a thing or two about Sunday as a family day. The 'Boys' love to blow up churches on Sundays, usually with Christians in them; so Sunday for some is the day they go to the morgue to identify the remains of their family members who have been dispatched to the hellfire by the 'Boys' who are doing a great job of sharing their special brand of joy make clear reference to the content of their religious convictions: unbelievers must die!
6. Find ways to employ the youth. Youth unemployment is a terrible thing, especially when youth have not been educated in virtue. Hamas can teach us a thing or two about this. Palestinian youth are the best rock throwers in the world. And Hamas even employed the very young in the construction of tunnels into Israel. Why build hospitals and schools when terror tunnels are ultimately better suited to serve your stated goal - the destruction of the Jewish state. It turns out that not a few of the young workers died in the construction of these tunnels. But that's how it is when you are at war with Zionists. It's heartening to know that Hamas also uses children as human shields. Thanks, Hamas.
7. Respect and care for nature. I think this tip includes animals since they are part of nature but not dogs. You see, dogs are unclean, especially black ones so it you are a pet owner or you need the assistance of a seeing eye dog, well you just better stay home. Now you're also going to have cholesterol problems and of course, weight gain. But then there is Ramadan and even though you are not a Muslim, you may have to fast anyway. Isn't Islam wonderful? Those social dimensions of Islam are just great!
8. Stop being negative. This is a good tip. Pay the jyzia, convert under duress, give up your faith. Just say yes all the time and everything will be fine. Whatever you do, don't tell the truth about Islam because that makes you more than negative. It makes you an islamophobe and a bigot and ungrateful for all the great things that Islam has done for humanity.
9. Respect others' beliefs. Since there is no reciprocity between Muslims and nonbelievers this tip is kind of difficult too. I wonder what Christians in Iraq or Syria or the Yazidis would say to this. "I respect your belief that I should be killed in the most gruesome manner possible. Thank you."
10. Work for peace. This one too is almost impossible if you happen to live in dar el harb (the world of war, i.e., the world not under the beautiful rule of Islam). Peace however, is not the absence of war. It is the work of justice and since there is no justice in Islam, certainly not for unbelievers, there can never be peace. The Israelis could tell us a thing or two about the peace process. After all, they have been at this elusive process with their "peace partners" for decades.
In the dystopian world that relativism has created terrorists are militants and heretics are pioneers. It will be in everyone's best interest to start telling the truth about this mess. The carnage and upheaval that are spreading can only be stopped if we truthfully acknowledge that this is a war between good and evil. The world is in flames, people are being slaughtered and we platter on about dialogue.
Lepanto. Learn this word.
