Justification Is Not Salvation

 This past Thursday, the country witnessed yet another senseless shooting; this time in Oregon. A 26-year old man, Christopher Harper-Mercer, entered a community college and opened fire, killing nine innocent people. He was described in the New York Times as a lonely man who spent much time on the Internet, disliked organized religion, and was an aficionado of the Nazis and the Irish Republican Army (IRA). According to the report, he asked his victims their religion.  "While reloading his handgun, the man ordered the students to stand up and asked whether they were Christians, ..."And they would stand up, and he said, 'Good, because you're a Christian, you're going to see God in just about one second,' " Stacy Boylan told CNN, relaying his daughter's account. "And then he shot and killed them."

 Of course, had this evil man been shooting Moslems, we would hear the left-wing media telling us about "Islamophobia," because if you're not politically correct, you must have a mental disorder. We haven't heard a thing about "Christophobia," and we never will. I bring this up because Harper-Mercer bought into the Protestant heresy of "Justification by Faith Alone" (hereinafter "JFA"). The Vatican II sect signed the Joint Declaration on Justification on October 31, 1999, which basically accepted the heresy (they accept anything except the Truth).

 I pray that those victims were in the state of Grace (justified) when killed, thereby obtaining Heaven either immediately or after Purgatory (salvation). However, simply because they claimed the title "Christian" does not guarantee they are going to see God. This is why three things are all important:

  1. Belong to the One True Church of Christ
  2. Always strive to live in the state of Sanctifying Grace 
  3. Pray daily for the Grace of Final Perseverance
The Heresy of JFA

Basically, JFA can be summed up as follows:
  • Justification is extrinsic, not intrinsic. When someone "accepts Christ as their personal Lord and Savior" God's Grace covers up their sins, like snow covering feces. God no longer sees a sinner worthy of wrath (which you remain) but He sees His Only Begotten Son in Whom He is well-pleased. Hence, humans are "justified." "Sin boldly, but believe more boldly," declared arch-heretic Martin Luther. How did they arrive at this idea? By a five-point doctrine they declare in an acronym called "TULIP."
  • T is for "Total Depravity." The sin of Adam did not merely wound human nature, as Catholic doctrine teaches; humanity was defiled so that all acts are worthy of damnation. Catholics see the preternatural gifts (bodily immortality, infused knowledge, Sanctifying Grace, and impassibility) as superimposed on human nature. When Adam sinned, he lost these gifts for himself and his progeny. Think of parents who are rich, but squander their wealth. The children will be born in poverty, but they can work their way up the economic ladder. JFA wrongly considers those gifts to be con-natural to human nature, like sight to the eyes. In sinning, Adam had his eyes gouged out, and his progeny is born sightless. They can't work to get their sight back.
  • U is for "Unconditional Election." God simply picks and chooses whom He will save. This is His right, as He has no duty to save anyone.
  • L is for "Limited Atonement." Christ only died for those He unconditionally elected. He really did  not die for all humanity.
  • I is for "Irresistible Grace." Once you have been elected, you will believe and become Christian as God's Grace cannot be rejected.
  • P is for "Perseverance of the Saints." Once saved, always saved. You cannot lose your salvation. Justification is thus equated with salvation. There is no difference.
There are some Protestants who believe a modified or slightly different version of these points, but "TULIP" forms the basis of the heresy. There are some practical problems inherent in such a belief. 

If God picks whom He chooses, how can you know you're "saved"? Some claim belief is enough, but in times gone by, it was thought that if you were rich, God's favor was upon you. Blessings of this kind show He has favored you. This was the basis of the "Protestant work ethic." Get rich, and you're probably saved. So much for the virtue of evangelical poverty.

 If God's Grace is irresistible and you can't lose your salvation, say goodbye to freewill. Suicide is wrong because God commands not to do it, but there is no logical reason not to go to Heaven sooner. Some will claim that such an act is proof you "didn't really believe." This leads you right back to the problem of how you know you're "really" saved, when a simple declaration of faith is claimed to suffice. 

 Ask a Protestant about the fate of infants, the retarded, and habitually insane. They can't have faith. While on the one hand Faith is claimed to be indispensable for salvation, on the other hand, they quote the Bible where Christ said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." (St. Matthew 19:14). That being the case, why not have an abortion and assure your child's salvation? Euthanize the insane and retarded as well, and get them to a better world. 

The Catholic Truth
  • Original Sin consists in the deprivation of Sanctifying Grace. Baptism restores Grace even in infants, since what was lost without personal fault can also be restored without personal assent. 
  • Justification is the restoration of Grace in the soul, whereby people are intrinsically cleansed of sin and made righteous in the sight of God due to the application of the merits of Christ's redeeming death on the cross. 
  • Justification can be made stronger by good works and lost by mortal sin.
  • No one of the age of reason, except by a personal, private revelation from God, can be assured of their being in the state of Grace, or of their salvation. One should thereby "workout Thy salvation in fear and trembling." (Phil. 2:12) We must pray for Final Perseverance ("But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved." St. Matthew 24:13)
  • Justification can be restored by perfect contrition and/or the sacrament of Penance. 
  • People are predisposed to Justification by actual graces that enlighten the intellect and move the will, but grace can be rejected by the freewill of people. 
  • Those who are baptized belong to the Church until separated by heresy, schism, or apostasy. Infants in false sects who are validly baptized are Catholic until they take instruction in their false sect.
  • Someone who dies justified (in the state of Sanctifying Grace) will receive salvation (Heaven, before or after Purgatory). "Once saved, always saved" is true in this sense: If you are saved (i.e. in Heaven or awaiting Heaven in Purgatory) you cannot be damned.
  • Someone who dies outside the Church, or as a member of the Church in mortal sin, is not justified, and will be damned forever to Hell. 
  • Protestants attempt to explain away Jesus' teaching on works by saying His teachings were hypothetical, or He wanted to show people cannot be saved by keeping the Commandments, or that His teachings are reserved for some future "millennial kingdom," but none of these hold up on examination.
  • In the story of the Rich Young Ruler (See St. Matthew 19:16-26), Jesus commends the man for his Faith and obedience to the Commandments and teaches this is necessary for salvation. Jesus calls him to a higher level of obedience by giving all he has to the poor. Christ concludes that if he does not do so he will be forever lost; therefore, works pleasing to God must be added to Faith for justification.
  • Some heretics attempt to use St. John 5:24 as proof of JFA: "Amen, amen I say unto you, that he who heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, hath life everlasting; and cometh not into judgment, but is passed from death to life." However, they do so without admitting Christ never used or implied the word "alone" in conjunction with "belief" or "faith." They also tear out the context. Four verses later, Jesus says, "And they that have done good things, shall come forth unto the resurrection of life; but they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment." This clearly indicates they will be judged by their works. 
  • The attempt to use the Good Thief as proof of JFA also fails. This man showed a knowledge that Christ hadn't done anything wrong, admission that he was rightfully there for his own wrongdoing, and showed a willingness to follow Christ in all He wanted done. Even if this were an exception and he was saved by his faith alone, we don't make the exception the rule. All must be baptized by water as the usual means of admission into the Church to be saved. Admission by baptism of desire or blood (BOD and BOB) are exceptions to water, but they are the exception and don't negate the rule. Just as God can save extra-sacramentally by a miracle of Grace, so too, could He save the Good Thief. 

  An evil man killed Christians this past week in a fit of anti-Christian rage. Whether he said they would see God before killing them to mock the Protestant conception of JFA, or whether he thought in his sick and twisted mind that he was really sending them to Heaven (and getting rid of them on Earth), is unknown. We would all do well to understand what justification really means. I'm sure none of those nine people woke up that day thinking someone would shoot them for professing Christianity. How many were actually saved? If you were there, what would have been your fate? Let that sobering thought guide you to live each day in God's Grace so that you will not be caught off-guard should He return "like a thief in the night." (See 2 Peter 3:10)

Leading Others To Hell By Example

 I had another topic ready for this week's post, which I needed to put off so I can give my impression of the Unholy Father's visit to the U.S. Rather than spell out all of what was wrong, I will just let Jorge Bergoglio ("Pope" Francis) do the talking, or rather, show us by his example, that for which he stands.

What Francis Did

  • He met the leading Socialist, sodomite-supporter, and baby-killer of the United States, Barak Obama. He then spoke before the U.S. Congress. Frankie's concerns? Immigration and the environment. Here he exalts the Corporal Works of Mercy over the Spiritual Works of Mercy. Humanity's final end is supernatural not natural. "Salus Animarum Est Suprema Lex" (The Salvation of Souls is the Supreme Law) proclaims the Canon Law of the Church.  He did not mention that all must convert to the Catholic Faith to be saved (a thrice defined dogma), nor did he implore all to follow Christ. "He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned." (See St. Mark 16:16). 
  • In his address to Congress, he said the following: "“Every life is sacred,” calling for the “global abolition of the death penalty” and the “responsibility to protect and defend human life at every stage of its development.” Frankie's apologists will consider this "condemnation of abortion." A few things to remember: The perennial teaching of the Catholic Church is that capital punishment is moral. The State may remove a dangerous person from "the body politic." Abortion and euthanasia are intrinsic evils that may never be permitted. His remark about capital punishment was direct; his reference to abortion and euthanasia were veiled. 
  • He did not remind the other so-called "Catholics" who were there (most notably VP Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi) that support of abortion is ipso facto excommunication. He did not tell all politicians who claim to be Catholic that he would order the "bishops" and "priests" of his sect to deny them "communion." 
  • He met with NY Governor Andrew Cuomo's concubine, Sandra Lee, to give her a blessing as she is fighting breast cancer. Once more, Francis extols the earthly over the eternal. While I hope Ms. Lee makes a full and complete recovery, I hope she separates from Cuomo and repents of her adultery. Her soul  is at stake. Frankie never told her (as Christ told the adulterer after He saved her from being stoned, "Go, and sin no more." St. John 8:11). Cuomo is a "Catholic" who is divorced without a Vatican II sect "annulment" so that, even by their standards, he is still married to his first wife. He single-handedly  pushed sodomite "marriage" through the NYS Legislature in 2011.
  • He allowed an open and practicing sodomite TV personality, Maurice Rocca, to be "lector" at the Novus Bogus "mass" he held in NY. He never denounced the Supreme Court for legalizing sodomite "marriage."

Who Francis Admires And Holds Up For Emulation
  • Before Congress, Frankie said, "A nation can be considered great when it defends liberty as Lincoln did; when it fosters a culture which enables people to ‘dream’ of full rights for all their brothers and sisters as Martin Luther King sought to do; when it strives for justice and the cause of the oppressed as Dorothy Day did by her tireless work; the fruit of a faith which becomes dialogue and sows peace in the contemplative style of Thomas Merton" 
  • Lincoln and King were not Catholics; he couldn't find examples of virtue in Catholics? King, although he stood against racism, was also a Communist sympathizer and womanizer. He was the cleric of a false religion. Compare: In April 1910, former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt sought an audience with Pope St. Pius X. The Pope agreed to see him, provided Roosevelt would not call on some Methodist missionaries in Rome. The Holy Pontiff did not want to meet with anyone who would honor clerics of a false religion trying to lead souls to Hell. Roosevelt declined to submit to St. Pius X's conditions and the interview did not take place. Francis holds up King, also a false cleric, to be honored. 
  • Dorothy Day was the subject of a scathing expose, The Catholic Worker Movement (1933-1980): A Critical Analysis  by Carol Byrne. Ms. Byrne had the following to say, "...based on archival sources not previously available to the public, show that Dorothy Day, after her conversion to Catholicism, did in fact become a member of several Socialist organizations and was actively involved in political groups whose founders and leaders were predominantly members of the Communist Party of the USA (CPUSA).  The book provides details of how Day shared public platforms with high profile Communists including Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, a paid official of the CPUSA (and later its first woman Chairman), took an active part in an array of Communist-led strikes during the 1930s and ‘40s and used her newspaper, the Catholic Worker (CW), of which she was editor for almost 50 years, as an organ of propaganda in favor of Communism. All this must be considered against the background of the decree issued by the Holy Office in 1949 pronouncing an anathema on any Catholic who cooperated with Communists in any way. The fact that she was able to flout the papal ban against Communist-aiding Catholics merely conferred on her an added mystique among her supporters. While declaring herself committed to a non-violent revolution, Day nonetheless supported every Socialist regime around the world regardless of its violent beginnings and inhumane consequences. There is documentary evidence that Day supported the policies of hostile foreign powers operating from Moscow, Havana, Peking and Hanoi against her own country, the USA. She also wrote favorably about such Socialist dictators as Lenin, Castro, Mao and Ho Chi Minh, even though they had all violently persecuted the Church in their respective countries. Is it not ironic that some Catholics who died in Communist purges of the 20th century have been canonized while the Vatican is considering sainthood for a Catholic who spent most of her life collaborating with their executioners?"
  • Thomas Merton, the "Monk of Modernism," was a believer in all religions – he created his own syncretistic brand of religion while remaining under the auspices of the Catholic Church. He gave equal attention to the mystical traditions within Catholicism, Zen Buddhism, and Hinduism. He was an equal-opportunity mystic drawn to the "common thread" found in all the world’s false religions, including his own Vatican II sect (he died in 1968, 4 years after the Great Apostasy). He even delved into the mystical branch of Islam and corresponded for many years with a Muslim Sufi cleric by the name of Abdul Aziz. "In his last years Merton became engrossed in the commonplaces of Eastern and Western mysticism. He was one of those for whom ‘ecumenical’ meant ‘worldwide or universal in extent and influence.’ His understanding of the unity of the world, a panentheistic God, and a cosmic Christ prohibited a narrowly defined humanity or limited theater of God’s action. The universality of the human quest for authentic being seemed to hold for him the potential for establishing a transcultural family of man." (See Thomas Merton on Mysticism by Raymond Bailey,1974, Doubleday & Co., Inc, Garden City, NY, p. 15).
 "By their fruits thou shalt know them. Are grapes gathered from thorn-bushes, or figs from thistles?" (St. Matthew 7:16). Our Lord told us that only a bad tree produces bad fruit. Now, we see a man who claims to be "pope," yet he preaches an earthly "gospel," fails to uphold traditional teachings on the murder of the unborn and unnatural vice, never demands that people repent, and cites evil people for admiration. Even the magazine Newsweek asked, "Is The Pope Catholic?" The evidence of his own actions tell us the answer is a resounding "NO." He is neither Catholic nor pope.

Divorce, Bergoglio-Style

 The Institution and Sacrament of Holy Matrimony has come under attack like never before. The U.S. joined a growing number of countries in redefining marriage out of existence with the pro-sodomite ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges. The State now considers any "loving union" to be a "marriage" even when the partners are of the same sex. The Vatican II sect has been busy destroying marriage for years with phony "annulments"  that declare valid unions null and void on such specious grounds as "psychological immaturity." This month, "Pope" Francis took blessing divorce and "remarriage" (read: "adultery") to the next level.

 According to the statistics, in 1968 there were a total of 338 annulments in the United States. In 1992 there were no less than 59,030; 175 times as many. The total number of annulments in the Vatican II sect world- wide in 1992 was 76,286, which means that no less than 75% of all annulments were from the U.S. (i.e., from a little over 5% of the world's "Catholic" population). Moreover, not only do one in two Vatican II marriages here in America end up in divorce, but one in five is officially annulled---90% of the demands for annulment being successful. In comes Frankie to exacerbate an already terrible and immoral situation.

First, let's remember what the Catholic Church teaches: "A Christian marriage that has been ratified and consummated cannot be dissolved by any human power nor for any reason, except by the death of one of the parties." (See theologian Henry Davis, Moral and Pastoral Theology, Sheed and Ward, London, Vol. 4:17 (1935)).  An annulment is a declaration that there was something lacking at the time of the marriage, not subsequent to it. For example, if it is discovered that one of the parties (both being very young) lied about their age so they didn't have the canonical capacity to contract the marriage (the boy was 15 not 16), the marriage was null and void from its inception. An annulment would so declare this to be the case, and both parties are free to go contract a valid marriage with another in the Church. After marriage, nothing can dissolve the bond; so if the husband cheats, the wife can separate bed and board, but they remain married and neither is free to marry another.

 Frankie has issued a "Motu Propio" entitled "Mitis et Misericors Iesus" which makes the annulment process easier! He wrote that he did this "for the salvation of souls." This is the same guy who told us atheists go to Heaven, so why worry over marriage? The problems that arise are manifold. It was very well expressed by Vatican II "canon lawyer" Edward Peters:

"Article 14 of the Ratio lists ten or twelve factors that enable an annulment petition (to which the parties agree) to be heard in a fast-track process. Note that the factors listed are simply examples of things enabling an annulment case to be heard quickly. Clearly, it is expected that other factors will also suffice.

The factors listed so far are (my trans): lack of faith that results in simulation of consent or an error that determines the will; brevity of married life; abortion procured to prevent procreation; stubborn persistence in an extramarital affair at the time of or just after the wedding; improper concealment of sterility or of a serious and contagious disease; concealment of children from a previous relationship; concealment of incarceration; entering marriage for reasons completely foreign to married life; unplanned pregnancy of the woman; physical violence inflicted to extort consent; lack of use of reason proved by medical documents; and so on.

Where to begin?

Looking at the examples offered—and setting aside the incoherence of some phrasings such as “abortion procured to prevent procreation”—they confuse several complex aspects of consent law, they seem to treat some fact patterns as if they were quasi-impediments to marriage, and they introduce into consideration some matters that have little (perhaps no) jurisprudence behind them with which to assist bishops assessing their significance in a marriage case. Worse, in my opinion, the enunciation of these factors is going to create crises of conscience among faithful who live with one or more of these conditions in their past.

The most confusing point about this list is that some of these factors, though presented as reasons for hearing a petition quickly, are actually grounds for nullity (e.g., simulation, force or fear); other factors, however, are most emphatically not grounds for annulment (e.g., brevity of married life); and others might, or might not, be suggestive of grounds for nullity (e.g., an extra-marital affair near the time of the wedding might show a grave lack of discretion of judgement or an inability to assume matrimonial rights and duties). Because traditional grounds of nullity have been mixed in among things that could be evidence for other grounds of nullity, and further mixed with things that are not grounds for nullity and often are not even evidence of grounds for nullity, confusion will—and already has, judging from questions I have already received from the faithful—erupt as to whether these factors are not just reasons to hear a case speedily, but are themselves proof of matrimonial nullity. Try to explain to non-canonists why one thing the pope listed (say, simulation) is grounds for an annulment but another thing he listed (say, pregnancy) is not grounds for an annulment.

Worse, many, many married couples have experienced one or more of these events in their lives. Unfortunately—again I say this has already started!—people with any of these factors in their lives are going to wonder, logically and sincerely, whether their marriage might be null. They will worry, for example, whether the fact that she was pregnant at the time of the wedding means their marriage is null. If not, why does it mean that an annulment case could be heard more quickly? Or, if he was not very active in the Faith when they married, did he just pretend for (technically, simulate) his wedding promises? Many of these questions are obviously highly dependent on fact analysis (e.g., what is “improper concealment” of infertility, what counts as “incarceration”?), and so one must ask, how are such cases reliably to be investigated, considered, and decided by a bishop (a man with about a hundred other things to do at any given time) in a matter of a few weeks?" (See

Further, it has been discovered that there is a seven (7) page dossier in the Modernist Curia, whereby senior Vatican II prelates express grave dissatisfaction over Frankie's Motu. Having some inkling of the Faith left, they decry what he has done as amounting to "Catholic (sic) divorce." The Society of St. Pius X notes some key points of dissension in the dossier:

  •   despite the gravity of the issue, no discasteries including the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith as well as bishops conferences, were consulted about the decision";
  • "The manner in which Francis released the document goes against the Pope's calls for synodality and collegiality, and resembles an ecclesialized 'Fuhrerprinzip,' ruling from the top down, by decree and without any consultation or without any checks";
  • Accusations of "unsettling developments" that claims Francis "circumvented" the regulated process for changing legislation for the universal Church. The dossier alleges that the papal commission enlisted to write the motu proprio had been ordered to keep silent about the document, for fear that others in the Curia, including the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, would try to thwart its publication, or at least insist on significant changes to keep the instruction more in line with the traditional process.
  • The fear that the new looser process "will lead to a flood of annulments" that will facilitate Catholics exiting their marriages with little difficulty.
  • The controversial changes to the annulment process, which were scheduled to be discussed at the Synod (as noted in Sections 114 and 115 of the 2015 Working Document [Instrumentum Laboris—Ed.]), have been thrust into "legislation" by Francis prior to the event, thus preventing any objections from conservative bishops who oppose the new process. (See

Ironically, the SSPX recognizes Frankie as pope, yet they will not follow his decree. They actually have their own "marriage tribunals" as if they are vested with Magisterial authority to decide nullity of marriages, while the hierarchy of the man they claim to be pope doesn't!

The sad fact is that in a time of near Universal Apostasy, there can be no valid annulments. Marriage is sacred and holy. It is for life, and expresses the love between Christ and His Church. The Supreme Court recognizes the union of perverts, and Francis facilitates adultery. They make a joke of an institution raised by Christ to the dignity of a Sacrament. "Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap." (Galatians 6:7). We are reaping the dissolution of society. However, this event does make one fact more clear than ever; Jorge Bergoglio has been himself divorced for quite some time---from the Truth.

Monday, September 14, 2015


 Kim Davis,  the Rowan County Clerk in Kentucky, went to jail earlier this month when she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. A federal judge jailed her on contempt when she refused to comply with the Supreme Court decision, handed down this past June, which made "same-sex marriage" a "right." Davis made this brave stand due to her Protestant beliefs. If you think she has any support from "Who am I to judge" Bergoglio, and his perverted hierarchy, guess again. Ms. Davis has been derided from the left-wing and anti-Christians with the usual epithets: "hate" (because she does not condone someone's behavior), "intolerant" (ironically, the left won't tolerate those who are intolerant making them hypocrites), and "homophobic" (an invented word implying mental illness if you don't/won't accept the sodomite agenda).

The latest attack on those who stand for traditional Christian morality is "The law is the law." Upon reading THAT one, my mind raced to the defense which Nazi war criminals raised at Nuremberg--- "Befehl ist Befeh" (literally, "an order is an order"). In other words, "It wasn't my fault I killed Jews, I was just obeying the orders of my superior and I would have been imprisoned or killed myself if I didn't comply." Can you imaging sodomite sympathizers intoning "the law is the law" against Rosa Parks when she defied segregation by refusing to sit in the back of the bus? The Nuremberg defense failed (thankfully), however, I was blown away by the similarities between the Nazis and the sodomites. You read that last sentence correctly: The "Homosexual Rights Movement" is like the Nazi Party of 1930s-1940s Germany. I read a book that spun my head entitled The Pink Swastika published in 1995 by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams.

The book is well researched and puts forward an astonishing thesis: The Nazi Party was founded and driven by sodomites. You might be thinking, "Wait a second! Didn't the Nazis persecute homosexuals? Weren't they put in concentration camps with Jews and forced to wear a pink triangle?" Lively and Abrams put forth a vigorous case that while some homosexuals (and those on trumped up charges of homosexuality) suffered under Hitler and his Nazis, The Pink Swastika attempts to show that that there was far more rape, torture, and murder committed by Nazi deviants/homosexuals than there ever was against homosexuals. The book draws heavily on two sources; Samuel Igra's book Germany's National Vice, which documents the homoerotic foundations of German militarism, and The Nazis and the Occult by Dusty Sklar, which documents the occult roots of Nazi ideology. There are many other sources listed as well. It is as fascinating as it is scary to read.

1. The Founding Of The Nazi Party

  • Although Hitler was probably not a homosexual or bisexual, he kept company with many sodomites who were his top Lieutenants. He was a coprophile, (a deviant aroused by human feces) and had relationships with at least four women, one of whom was his niece. Due to his perverted and twisted ways all four women involved with Hitler attempted suicide.
  • Why would Hitler found a Party made up of deviants? There are several reasons. First, he wanted people--pimps, murders, and homosexuals--who would be willing to go against traditional morality. Second, homosexuals fit in with Hitler's occult beliefs. Pagan "priests" and "priestesses" were often homosexual. The modern pagan religion of Wicca embraces homosexuality and worships nature. The swastika itself comes from non-Christian, pagan religions.    It was used at least 5,000 years before Adolf Hitler designed the Nazi flag. According to the Holocaust Encyclopedia, "The word swastika comes from the Sanskrit svastika, which means “good fortune” or “well-being." The motif (a hooked cross) appears to have first been used in Neolithic Eurasia, perhaps representing the movement of the sun through the sky. To this day it is a sacred symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Odinism. It is a common sight on temples or houses in India or Indonesia. Swastikas also have an ancient history in Europe, appearing on artifacts from pre-Christian European cultures." Remember the Bible says homosexuality is the result of "worshiping the creation rather than the Creator" (See Romans 1: 18-27). Third, many homosexuals had violent, even murderous inclinations (more on this later in this post). 
  • Homosexuals may be divided into those who act effeminately ('fems") and those who disguise their unnatural vice under a veneer of being virile and manly ("butches").  The latter were the ones who wanted to revive the pederastic military cults of the pagan pre-Christian era. Their leaders included top Nazis Adolf Brand and Ernst Roehm. They despised the pacifist and effeminate homosexuals; and these were the ones whom were persecuted! Heterosexuals served the purpose of procreation, but the effeminate didn't procreate or share their militaristic vision. Hence, they were seen as subhuman. 

2. Homosexual Violence

  • According to researcher Dr. Brian Clowes, eight of the top ten serial killers in the U.S. were homosexual, and they account for 68% of all mass murders. This is incredible when you consider that homosexuals claim to account for (an inaccurately inflated) 10% of the total population. 
  • Gaetan Dugas, is a sodomite who directly and knowingly infected over 1,000 of his fellow homosexuals with the AIDS virus. Even when he was in the final stages, he would have anonymous sex in "gay" bathhouses, and then show his partners his purple Kaposi's Sarcoma blotches saying, "Gay cancer. Maybe you'll get it." He reasoned that he is free to do what he wants with his own body in private. Sound familiar? (See  "The Columbus of AIDS," National Review,11/6/87: 19)

3. A Fourth Reich? 

  • The notorious group ACT-UP, would enter Vatican II sect churches, would go up to receive their communion in the hand and then throw the wafer on the floor to step on it. (Thank God their communion service is invalid!).  One of its leaders, Eric Pollard admitted their subversive tactics were largely drawn from Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler.
  •  While the media never let up on the murder of Matthew Sheppard, when 13 year-old Jesse Dirkhising was murdered by two homosexual men who repeatedly raped him for several hours and tied him up causing his death by asphyxiation, it wasn't a major news story until  The Washington Times reported the story one month after his death. Sodomites are to be portrayed as victims, not making others victims.
  •  Indiana wanted to pass a "Religious Freedom Restoration Act" which read:"A governmental entity may substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion only if the governmental entity demonstrates that application of the burden to the person: (1) is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest; and (2) is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest." It was condemned as "anti-LGBT." The threats made to the Republican governor and legislature by the "lavender lobby" to cripple the state's economy was so fierce,they watered the bill down and caved in.
  • A bakery in the Portland, Oregon, area that declined to make a wedding cake for a gay couple two years ago was ordered to pay $135,000 in damages in July.
  • In Washington state, a florist has been fighting a lawsuit filed after she refused to provide services for a gay wedding in 2013.

The sodomites have invaded places of power in government and the Vatican II sect. A "Gay Mafia"controls Modernist Rome. The media and academia have turned those who object to homosexual practice into "bigoted morons" (at best) and "discriminatory criminals" (at worst). The government complies by fining, and now even jailing, people of faith. "Pope" Francis doesn't want to judge them, does nothing to stop their agenda, and even wants to give them the Novus Bogus "communion." Is this the beginning of  more Homo-Fascism?  It's a very real and frightening probability if things keep going as they have--especially in the last 15 years. So remember that the next time you dare to assert that you believe homosexual acts to be immoral, the people who will denigrate you as "bigoted,"  "hateful," "fanatic," and will demand that you accept homosexuality under pain of job loss, fines, and even prison, are against intolerance.

Shedding Some Light On "Three Days Of Darkness"

 In this age of the Great Apostasy, many Traditionalists will (unfortunately) abandon the approved theologians of the Church for private revelations. It is imperative that we learn the Faith, and not what passes for the "Faith" in some quarters. Certain people don't even understand basic terminology. "Public" and "private" revelation do not refer to how many people the revelation was given, but rather whether or not it is part of the Deposit of Faith to which we must assent. The Deposit of Faith, given by Jesus Christ to His One True Church, ended with the death of the last Apostle (St. John) in 100 A.D. That marks the end of public revelation. The Church has authority to make solemn pronouncements on what is contained in this revelation, and the faithful must give assent under pain of mortal sin and expulsion from the Mystical Body by heresy (e.g. It is part of the Deposit of Faith that Christ gave exactly seven (7) sacraments to His Church).

 Private revelation is given by God after the close of public revelation to certain individuals (usually saints or people considered to be such). If a private revelation is approved by the Church, it means that it does not contradict matters of Faith and/or morals. It is worthy of belief, but you can deny it outright and not be a heretic. You also commit no sin of disbelief, provided your lack of faith in a particular approved revelation does not stem from disdain of ecclesiastical authority.  While non-approved revelations should be avoided like the plague, even those which are approved can be misunderstood or have the message corrupted since Church approval does not entail any kind of infallible (or even authoritative) teaching. An example is the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima. The late "Fr" Gruner made a business out of peddling dire predictions for the world. I have material of his dating back to the late 1980s claiming "we only have a couple of years left" unless the "pope" (John Paul II) consecrates Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. That never happened and more than 25 years have passed without any calamity. Of course this never prevented Mr. Gruner from asking for the largest donation you could give as he shamelessly continued to predict the sky would fall "very shortly."

 According to another prediction of Fatima, "Portugal will never lose the Faith." One need only take a look at the present day European country to see that it has rejected the Faith for Vatican II, and has promulgated many evil "laws" such as murdering babies by abortion. There are no more Traditionalists there (in sheer number or proportionately) than in any other neo-pagan State. I do believe Our Lady appeared in Fatima to three children, but I refuse to try and discern "true" from "false" messages, or listen to all the conspiracy theories involved. Holding on to the Faith will save us, not private revelations--especially ones laced with fearful consequences for those who refuse to propagate those messages.

One of the most fearful private revelations involves what is commonly referred to the "Three Days of Darkness" (hereinafter TDD).  It is used by "mystical" sedevacantists as the answer to the Great Apostasy. God will use these TDD as a world-wide chastisement and then will bring back a true pope. There are so many versions of TDD it's hard to know how to describe it. I will use the version utilized by the "pope in red" website, specifically

The website states: "The Church does not oblige us to believe in any particular prophecy as a matter of faith [de fide], but we are indeed obliged to believe that prophecies may be made even in our own times, for this is in the Gospel [Evangelium]: the Holy Ghost will speak to many in the Latter Days.

Moreover, when an identical prophecy has been made by widely separated people in time and space, when this particular prophecy was accompanied by other predictions which have already come to pass, and when the holiness of the mystics in question has been recognized by the Church, we would be foolish indeed not to believe that the prophecy must come to pass. Such is the case concerning the Three Days of Darkness. How else could we explain that an illiterate peasant woman of Brittany is describing the very thing that another mystic in, say, Germany or Italy is also describing?"

 With the defection of the hierarchy we must be very careful about who speaks for the Holy Ghost. "For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect." (See St. Matt. 24:24). We are foolish to believe anything that is illogical, damaging to the Faith, and not approved by the Church--regardless of whomsoever allegedly said something. Many holy people claimed TDD. Especially Padre Pio and Blessed Anna- Maria Taigi. It is not unknown,because there was such a plague sent by God upon the Egyptians through Moses.  Therefore, say TDD proponents, we must accept it as the truth. The website claims:

"After the three days of darkness, St. Peter and St. Paul, having come down from Heaven, will preach in the whole world and designate a new Pope. A great light will flash from their bodies and will settle upon the cardinal who is to become Pope. Christianity, then, will spread throughout the world. He is the Holy Pontiff, chosen by God to withstand the storm. At the end, he will have the gift of miracles, and his name shall be praised over the whole earth. Whole nations will come back to the Church and the face of the earth will be renewed. Russia, England, and China will come into the Church." (Prophecy of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi [1769-1837 A.D.] who was Beatified by Bendedict XV in 1920.) 
This assumes sedeprivationism. How else could there be a material "cardinal"?

There will be "proximate signs":  "Here are the proximate signs in their probable order of occurrence. This, to be sure, is only my own opinion, and I may be wrong for I am no prophet myself; but, after studying a large number of prophecies, this order appears to me to be the most likely:

1. Flouting of church laws, irreverence and immodesty in church, fall in attendance at church. (These trends were observed in the 1950's, before the true Church was criminally usurped at the Oct 26, 1958 papal conclave.-ED)

2. Lack of charity towards others, heartlessness, indifference, divisions, contentions, godlessness, pride in human knowledge.

3. Breakdown of family life: immorality, adultery, perversion of youth via the media (e.g. homosexuals giving lectures in schools), immodest fashions, people concerned only with eating, drinking, dancing and other pleasures.

4. Civil commotions, contempt for authority, downfall of governments, confusion in high places, corruption, coups d'etat, civil war, revolution. (The first four proximate signs have already come to pass, at least partly; for we are yet to see civil war and revolution in the West. But the sequence of events is not strictly chronological; there is room for some overlapping. Thus, the 5th proximate sign seems to have begun also.)

5. Floods and droughts, crop failures, unusual weather, tornadoes, earthquakes, tidal waves, famines, epidemics, unknown diseases (e.g. new strains of viruses)."

Do you see the problem here? We have someone interpreting private messages with no Magisterial authority. Why should we believe this interpretations of alleged sayings based on alleged revelations. The beatification of Anna-Maria Taigi in no way guarantees any truth in private messages. The "proximate signs" are so broad as to be seen in any era. Note that # 1 goes back to the 1950s; at least 57 years ago. How is that "proximate"? 

Next comes "The Warning":

 "This will take place between the proximate and the immediate signs. It will be a supernatural occurrence.
During the Warning, many will be scared to their wits end, and many will wish to die, but the Warning itself will be completely harmless.

The Warning must be viewed as the last act of mercy from God, a final appeal to mankind to do penance before the three days of darkness and the destruction of three-quarters of the human race. At a time when the murder of unborn babies and the sin of Sodom and Lesbos have become acceptable and "legal", we should not wonder why God is going to punish mankind.

By that time, war and revolution will have already caused a high death-toll, and Communism will be victorious, but all this will be as nothing compared with the death-toll caused by the Three Days."

I agree that humanity has deserved just punishment, and after the Supreme Court ruling on sodomite "marriage" being a "right," the end may come soon, but not necessarily via TDD.

Next, "The Immediate Sign":
The wind will howl and roar. Lightning and thunderbolts of an unprecedented magnitude will strike the earth. The whole earth will shake, heavenly bodies will be disturbed (this will be the beginning of the Three Days). Every Demon, every evil spirit will be released from hell and allowed to roam the earth. Terrifying apparitions will take place. Many will die from sheer fright. Fire will rain forth from the sky, all large cities will be destroyed, poisonous gases will fill the air, cries and lamentations everywhere. The unbelievers will burn in the open like withered grass. The entire earth will be afflicted; it will look like a huge graveyard.

As soon as you notice (these signs), go indoors, lock all doors and windows, pull down the blinds, stick adhesive paper on vents and around windows and doors. Do not answer calls from outside, do not look at the windows, or you will die on the spot: keep your eyes down to make sure you do not see the windows; the Wrath of God is mighty and no one should attempt to behold it. Light blessed wax candles; nothing else will burn, but the candles will not be extinguished once lit. Nothing will put them out in the houses of the faithful, but they will not burn in the houses of the godless. Sprinkle holy water about the house and especially in the vicinity of doors and windows: the devils fear holy water. Bless yourself with it and anoint your five senses with it: eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hands, feet, and forehead. Keep on hand a sufficient supply of drinking water and, if possible, food also (but you can live without food for three days.) Kneel down and pray incessantly with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the floor. Make acts of contrition, faith, hope, and charity. Above all say the Rosary and meditate on the Sorrowful mysteries.

Some people, especially children, will be taken up to Heaven beforehand to spare them the horror of these days. People caught outdoors will die instantly. Three-quarters of the human race will be exterminated, more men than women. No one will escape the terror of these days.

And the  aftermath:

But, when all seems lost and hopeless, then, in the twinkling of an eye, the ordeal will be over: the sun will rise and shine again as in springtime over a purified earth.

Some nations will disappear entirely, and the face of the earth will be changed. There will be no more "Big Business" and huge factories which sap men's souls. Craftsmanship will revive, and assembly lines will give way to the working bench.

People will return to the land, but food will be scarce for about three years. Married women will bear many children, for it will be regarded as a disgrace not to have children, no more "career women" addicted to the "pill". Unmarried females, there will be many, will enter the religious orders and form large congregations of Nuns within the reborn Church. Disease will decrease dramatically, and mental illnesses will be rare, for man will have retrieved his natural environment. It will be an age of faith, true brotherhood between neighbors, civil harmony, peace, and prosperity. The land will yield crops as never before. Police will have little work to do: crime will disappear almost entirely. Mutual trust and honesty will be universal. There will be little work for lawyers, either. All the manpower which is currently taken up by the wickedness of the modern world will be released and available for the production of useful commodities. Thus, prosperity will be very great. This wonderful period will probably last 30 years approximately.

As soon as you see the sun rise again at the end of the Three Days, drop to your knees and give thanks to God.

And of course, "believe it or else":

Be warned, SPREAD THE MESSAGE, but do not fear: it would be an offense to God to show lack of confidence in His protection. Those who spread the message will be protected, but the scoffers, the skeptics, and those who dismiss the message because they are frightened, will not escape the chastisement.

Whew! Scary stuff! I will not spread the message, nor worry about TDD,and here's some more reasons  why:

  • Why does Catholicism need to spread if everyone who survives is already Catholic and under a newly crowned pope? The number of Traditionalists is quite few; certainly not 25% of the world's population that will survive. 
  • Since only blessed candles of wax can be lit, how do you light your candle when the TDD arrive? You would need to keep one lit in your house 24/7 like some ecclesiastical version of militia "preppers." Does God really want us storing food, water and blessed candles? 
  • It contradicts Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. The Bible verses used to support TDD have all been understood by the Church as outside the genre of apocalyptic language. There is nothing in Tradition that speaks of TDD. If the Great Apostasy ends this way (and proponents claim we are definitely in the Great Apostasy of the Book of Revelation), that displaces the Antichrist, False Prophet, and Second Coming of Christ; all matters of public revelation.  
  • Padre Pio also believed that the book, The Poem of the Man-God by Maria Valorta was good and holy. However, that writing had been placed on the Index of Forbidden Books for heretical statements. Padre Pio was "canonized" by Antipope John Paul II. That's not to say he might not really be a saint, but no saint is infallible about private prophesies and revelations. He might have been mistaken about the book for a number of inculpable reasons, and the same goes for TDD.
Don't be concerned about frightful images in an alleged "Three Days of Darkness." Learn the teachings of the One True Church as expounded by Her approved theologians to really know and love the Faith. Stay close to the Mass and sacraments as best you can and always strive to be in the state of Grace. In this way, darkness will never overcome Christ in your mind, heart and soul-- He is truly The Light of the World

True And False Saints

 On September 3, the Church will celebrate the feast of Pope St. Pius X, that heroically virtuous pontiff who tried to extirpate the Modernist heretics from the hierarchy. St. Pius X was the first pope to be canonized (on May 29, 1954 by Pope Pius XII) since Pope St. Pius V in 1712 (by Pope Clement XVI). On October 11, the Vatican II sect will celebrate the feast of "Pope Saint" John XXIII (Angelo Roncalli), the Modernist heretic responsible for the Great Apostasy. Antipope John was "canonized" by Jorge Bergoglio (Antipope Francis) on April 27, 2014 along with Antipope John Paul II (Karol Wotyla) as a way of thanking them for undoing all that Pope Pius X accomplished and for setting up Counterfeit Catholicism. In this post, I wish to compare/contrast Rocalli (John XXIII) and St. Pius X. The differences between whom the Catholic Church venerates and whom the Vatican II sect venerates couldn't make it any more clear that they are not one and the same entity as Vatican II apologists would like you to believe.

 Pope Benedict XIV (1740-1758), says that "When inquiry is instituted for the purpose of beatification or canonization, no examination is made of miracles until after the heroic virtues or the martyrdom of the servant of God have been proved. These virtues are the first and most decisive witness to sanctity; visions, prophecies, and miracles are only of secondary importance, and they are absolutely ignored if proof of heroic virtues is not forthcoming." With this in mind let's examine two very different lives.


  In the brief of beatification (June 3, 1951), Pius XII lists the chief traits deserving the attention and the admiration of the crowds: 

  • His concern about the holiness of the clergy, the key to renewing all things in Christ, according to his motto.

  • The renewal of ecclesiastical studies. Pius X exhorts Christian philosophers to defend the truth under the banner of St. Thomas Aquinas--using Neo-Scholastic Thomism. He founded the Pontifical Biblical Institute, and encouraged the theological sciences.

  • His preoccupation with the eternal salvation of souls. If Pius X desired a holy clergy, it was with a view to the instruction of the faithful, to whom he gave a catechism designed for both adults and children. To the young he was truly the Pope of the Eucharist, promoting Holy Communion at an early age, and for everyone, frequent (and if possible) daily Communion.

  • The defense of the faith in its fullness and purity. The false teachings that became the "synthesis of all heresies" was labeled as Modernism, and wisely repressed  in the encyclical Pascendi of September 8, 1907. In these circumstances, as well as in his battle against the Masonic "separation of Church and State," St. Pius X was, in the words of Pope Pius XII, an “infallible teacher of the faith”, the “fearless avenger of religion” and the “guardian of the Church’s liberty”.

  • His love of the liturgy. The initiator of an authentic liturgical movement, Pius X renewed sacred music, but also the breviary and the calendar of feast days, so as to orient the Church decisively to liturgical beauty, splendor, and purity.


  • Was removed from his teaching position at the Lateran University under "suspicion of Modernism." He was on a list of suspected Modernists as far back as 1925, and which list was kept at the Holy Office.

  • Received the red hat of a cardinal from the hands of French President Vincent Auriol in 1953 at Roncalli's insistence. Auriol was a committed Socialist, of whom Roncalli said he was an "honest socialist." Pope Pius XI had stated, " No one can be, at the same time, a sincere Catholic and a true socialist."

  • Promoted ecumenism. He ordered the words removed from the prayer of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus : "Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism." He changed the Good Friday prayers so as to remove the phrase "perfidious (i.e., faithless) Jews." He further modernized the Mass, Breviary, and Calendar. 

  • In his encyclical Pacem In Terris (1963), he stated in paragraph #11, "Also among man's rights is that of being able to worship God in accordance with the right dictates of his own conscience, and to profess his religion both in private and in public." This is blatant heresy. Although the Vatican II sect did not begin until 1964 with the promulgation of Lumen Gentium by Antipope Paul VI, we can be morally certain Roncalli was not pope from at least this date. His encyclical clearly repudiates the teachings of all previous popes, most especially Popes Gregory XVI and Pius IX:  "Now we arrive at another cause of the evils with which we suffer at seeing the Church afflicted at this moment, to wit, this “indifferentism,” or this perverse opinion spread everywhere by the devious action of bad men. According to it, one could achieve eternal salvation by any profession of faith, as long as the customs are upright and honest. It will not be difficult for you, in such a clear and evident matter, to drive so fatal an error from the midst of the peoples under your care. Indeed, since the Apostle had warned us that “there is but one God, one faith, one baptism” (Eph 4:5), those who believe that all religions offer the means to reach eternal salvation must fear and comprehend that, according to the testimony of the Savior Himself, “those who are not with Christ are against Him” (Luke 11:23); and that they scatter in sadness, since they do not gather with Him. Consequently, there is no doubt that “they who do not profess the Catholic Faith and maintain it whole and inviolate will be eternally lost” … From this infected source of “indifferentism” flows that absurd and erroneous maxim, or rather this delirium, that it is necessary to grant everyone “freedom of conscience.” This most pernicious error has its way prepared by a full and immoderate freedom of opinion that is widely spread for the ruin of religious and civil society. Some repeat with extreme impudence that it brings an advantage for religion. However, St. Augustine asked: “What could be a worse evil for the soul than the liberty of error?”"--Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos (1832)--Emphasis mine.
  • He was publicly praised by the Masonic Lodges for promoting ecumenism. 
  Now ask yourself, "How can these two men who believed contradictory things both be true saints?" From our beliefs, our actions flow. St. Pius X wanted to "restore all things in Christ." Roncalli wanted to "open the windows of the Church" to let in the polluted air and stench of Modernism. Truth is eternal and immutable. If what St. Pius believed was true, good and beautiful, then what Roncalli believed was false, evil, and ugly.  You must decide which is the True Saint of the One True Church of Christ, and which is a false saint of a false religion. There are only three possibilities when dealing with contradictory positions: 1. St. Pius is right and a saint. Traditionalism is true. 2. Roncalli is right and a saint. The Vatican II sect is true. The Church of Christ did not exist prior to this time. 3. Both are false and neither is a saint. You must reject Christianity outright and become an apostate. What will YOU decide? 
 I'd like to share something I read several places. Roncalli took the name of a historically recognized antipope--Baldassare Cossa--from the fifteenth century. Many of you reading this may remember the famous "similarities between Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy." Both were elected 100 years apart (1860 and 1960), both had as Vice-Presidents former senators from the South named Johnson who became president after the respective assassinations, etc. Some have speculated "Kennedy was Lincoln reincarnated." We know reincarnation to be false, but the comparisons are intriguing; everybody loves a good coincidence.

 However, sometimes I must wonder if certain things are more than coincidence, but rather a sign from God. Here are the coincidences between the first Antipope John XXIII (Cossa) and the second (Roncalli)

1. Both had reigns of 5 years (1410-1415) and (1958-1963)

2. Both called a Council; Constance and Vatican II

3. Both opened the Council in the fourth year of their reign. (1414 and 1962)

4. Both died before the third session of the Council.

Perhaps evil works in similar ways at times. And here, at least for me, is "the kicker": Frankie chose the opening day of Vatican II (October 11) as the "feast day" of Roncalli. That is also the birthday of my spiritual father, the late, great Fr. Gommar A. DePauw, JCD who was a peritus (i.e. theological expert) at Vatican II working to help Cardinal Ottavianni against the Modernists. He became the first Traditionalist, keeping the True Church alive publicly when he launched the Catholic Traditionalist Movement in 1964! Evil is now being celebrated on the birth of the one who would keep the Faith and start the fight. (For more on Fr. DePauw, see my post of January 19, 2013 "The First.").

 On the feast of Pope St. Pius X this September 3rd, let's pray to the holy pontiff that, just as the false papacy of John XXIII in the fifteenth century was crushed, so too may the Vatican II sect of the second Antipope John XXIII be destroyed and a true pope restored. Maybe then we will even see the feast of "St." John XXIII on October 11 replaced with that of "St. Gommar DePauw of Westbury!"

Entertaining Demons Unaware

Earlier this month, a criminal court judge ruled that thirteen-year-old Morgan Geyser, and her thirteen-year-old friend Anissa Weier, would be tried as adults concerning the crime for which they were charged one year earlier.  It's always disturbing when children commit crimes. However, the details of this horrific event make even the most desensitized people in today's crazy world wince in utter disbelief. On May 31, 2014, Weier and Geyser invited their friend, Payton Leutner, over to Geyser's house for a sleepover to celebrate Geyser's 12th birthday.

 Later in the day, they asked Payton to go play hide-n'-seek with them in the woods near the house. Once hidden by the trees, they took out a knife and stabbed her 19 times, leaving her for dead. The victim managed to crawl in her blood-soaked  fleece jacket to the road, where a man on a bicycle saw her and dialed 911. She barely survived; one stab wound was but a millimeter from her aorta, which would have meant death for certain. When police asked her how she made it out in such a wounded condition, Payton's answer was to the point, "I wanted to live."

 Was this some random act of violence? No, Geyser and Weier had planned the murder for months. Did Payton bully the other two girls? No, Payton had always been nice to them. Was this revenge for a boy liking her instead of one of them? No. They did it to become "proxies" of the "Slender Man." According to Newsweek magazine: "In 2009 an online forum called Something Awful announced a Photoshop contest to create fake supernatural photographs—images so convincing that they would pass as the real thing in other online paranormal forums. Eric Knudsen submitted two black-and-white photos of an impossibly tall, thin and faceless creature stalking children. According to the website 'Know Your Meme', one of the captions read, “We didn’t want to go, we didn’t want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time.… ” Knudsen called his monster Slender Man.

The legend of Slender Man morphed and grew as people contributed to his story, writing fan fiction and creating their own forged photos in a kind of modern-day, tech-fueled folklore. Dressed in a black suit, Slender Man has black tentacles protruding from his back. He can stretch his arms to inhuman lengths and is often pictured lurking in leafless forests or behind unsuspecting children. Legend says he can cause memory loss, coughing fits (referred to as “slendersickness,” according to Know Your Meme) and a litany of paranoid behaviors. He can remove your organs, impale you on a tree or stalk you slowly and drive you to madness. Slender Man is now a facsimile of the Puritan devil: He is everywhere, every day, a specter of our anxieties about raising children in a world where technology reigns and the lines between reality and fantasy grow dimmer." (See

 Or perhaps the lines between natural and supernatural have grown thinner. The Slender Man was a tall, faceless freak in a black suit who was photoshopped into chilling black and white pictures. A disturbing myth developed about this evil spirit that lurked in forests and preyed on children, manipulating their actions and driving them mad, or snatching them with his tentacle-like arms. The Slender Man attracted a cult following online, including two US ­schoolgirls now standing trial for murder as adults. Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier were convinced the Slender Man would kill them and their families unless they made a sickening sacrifice to please him. Weier told police: “The bad part of me wanted her (Payton Leutner) to die; the good part wanted her to live.”

According to the Daily Mirror: "When detectives searched Geyser’s room they found half a dozen mutilated Barbie dolls that had been slashed and decorated with Slender Man’s symbol. Some of the dolls had their hands and feet hacked off. They also found more than 60 drawings of the Slender Man, including pictures of the spectre hugging a young girl. Alongside them were notes that read, “not safe even in your house” and, “he is here always." Another cartoon showed a girl holding a scythe, with a speech bubble saying: “I love killing people." At her feet was the body of a girl she had executed.

Most chilling of all was a shopping list for the alleged murder plot found scrawled in a notebook and headed “supplies ­necessary” in childish letters. The list included “murder weapons,"  followed by “kitchen knife” in brackets, pepper spray, ­flashlights, a camera and cheesecake. Further investigation allegedly revealed the girls had spent five months plotting the murder in detail." (Emphasis mine). (See

 What struck me is that two girls with no previous signs of being in trouble or having mental illness suddenly did something so unspeakably horrid; worse than a scene from a horror movie (Hollywood is now making a Slender Man movie!). Madness is not contagious. I'm not a psychologist, but it seems more than a bit odd that two young girls who are friends would both have severe psychological problems, to the point of sharing the same psychotic ideas and plot. Where were the parents when all this was going on? Not supervising their children and letting them be "entertained" by the Internet. We are (literally) being "entertained to death."  The girls had one thing in common: obsession with Slender Man.


  • A Hamilton County (Ohio) mother says her daughter’s attacking her with a knife could have been a result of the fictional horror character Slender Man.“She had her hood up and had her hands covered with her sleeves and the mask,” the mother said. She said her 13-year-old daughter was obsessed with the fictional character Slender Man. “She was someone else during that attack,” the mother said. Her daughter allegedly attacked her with a knife in the kitchen of their home. The daughter is in the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center. The mother said her daughter has mental health issues but that she never imagined anything like this would happen. “I came home one night from work and she was in the kitchen waiting for me and she was wearing a mask, a white mask,” she said. The mother said her daughter’s writings and drawings have always been dark. They referenced demons, being insane and falling into darkness.  “(She) mentioned playing a role. (I) got the feeling she was playing a role. It didn't feel like her at all,” the mother said.

    • On September 4, 2014, a 14-year-old girl in Port Richey, Florida, allegedly set her family's house on fire while her mother and nine-year-old brother were inside. Police reported that the teenager had been reading online stories about Slender Man as well as Atsushi Ōkubo's Soul Eater
    • The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation reports an epidemic of suicides and attempted suicides in early 2015 (ages of victims 12-24). Slender Man was cited as an influence--he resembles their pagan "suicide spirit." (See
    • The "Charlie Charlie Challenge" has inspired millions of ­youngsters to dabble with satanic rituals by using a simple Ouija board made from a sheet of paper divided into quarters. They write “Yes” in two corners and “No” in the remaining squares. They then make a cross by stacking one pencil on top of another and summon the demon “Charlie” who answers questions – or even gives them instructions – by turning the top pencil to point to “Yes” or “No." Even the Modernist Vatican commented on this one. "Fr." Jose Antonio Fortea, said spirits could continue to haunt or harm players after the game ended.
    • The Daily Mirror reports: "Players have reported strange phenomena after contacting Charlie, especially if they believe they failed to sever the spiritual link after the game. One player from Buckinghamshire claimed her laptop malfunctioned, then the power failed. When she tried to call her parents the phone cut out. Another from Texas said he had seen a black figure with red eyes at the top of the stairs. Others reported hearing sinister laughing and objects moving without any obvious explanation."
      As the True Church has grown smaller since the Great Apostasy of Vatican II, Satan has grown stronger. Satanic influences abound in movies, TV, video games, the Internet, popular novels; now even in children's games not involving technology. The invalidly ordained Vatican II clergy are helpless to exorcise demons. As anyone who reads my blog knows, I'm no alarmist, but any person of Faith can see that "Charlie" and "Slender Man" are demonic in origin and open a doorway to Hell.

      In Deuteronomy 18:9-12, we read: "When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there.  Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you." (Emphasis mine)

      Let's see what can be found in our culture:

      "Sacrifices their son or daughter": Can anyone say "abortion"? Want to buy some baby parts? They're just cells, not people says Planned Parenthood, so don't worry

      "Divination..sorcery..omens"--games like "Charlie Charlie," astrology, going to fortune tellers, using Ouija boards, tarot cards etc.

      "Witchcraft"--also known as "Wicca" is now recognized as a religion by the U.S. government. Shows like CharmedSabrina the Teenage Witch, Salem, and Good Witch  all celebrate witchcraft

      "Casts spells"--Harry Potter books and movies

      "Medium, spiritist, or consults the dead"--Mediums are now the rage; games like "Charlie Charlie" also fall into this category, as does Slender Man (he's a "specter" or "ghost"; and you're dealing with consulting the dead/demons).

      All of this makes one "detestable to the LORD."  As Traditionalists we must be very vigilant in how and when we engage the culture. At least we have the supernatural means to fight; the True Mass, sacraments, sacramentals, and when necessary, exorcisms by real priests for demonic possession/obsession. (Demonic obsession is external attacks by evil spirits to harm someone as opposed to taking them over from within, i.e. possession). Parents: Please monitor everything your child does under the age of 21; you are responsible before God. Ask a Traditionalist priest for guidelines, and check about any media/games of which you are unsure. Otherwise you might (God forbid) think your child is being "entertained," only to find out it's your child who's become entertainment for demons.
