1A: A Chicago federal appeals court ruled on Thursday that Roncalli Catholic High School in Indianapolis was within its First Amendment rights to dismiss a guidance counselor who had entered a public “same-sex marriage” in defiance of Catholic teachings. The court dismissed a lawsuit brought by the former school employee, who accused the school and the Archdiocese of Indianapolis of violating anti-discrimination law.
CATHOLICISM: Latria is worship, which is due to God alone. Dulia is honor, which is due to angels and good people. Hyperdulia is the extra special honor we owe to Mary, because she is the best creature God ever made.[6:39] – A while back, I quoted (I think it was) Father Columba saying, “If you could design your own mother, wouldn’t you make her the best mother that ever lived? Well, God could. So He did.”
Yesterday, I heard another priest, Father Donald Calloway, note that Mary was created by the whole Trinity. And, yes, Jesus made her to be the best mother ever. But also, the Father made her to be the best daughter ever. And the Holy Spirit made her to be the best woman and spouse ever. Wow.
I had a Protestant friend who told me once that Catholics have it wrong, that our spiritual lives should be all about Jesus alone. But I know for a fact that it pleased him to see his wife loving on his mother. So why would Jesus be offended about us loving on His mother?
CHICAGO: [6:07] – George Soros has donated tens of millions of dollars toward getting ultra-progressive attorneys into District Attorneys’ offices. Chicago’s Kim Foxx was Soros’ first success; In 2016, he gave her $300K to get elected, then in 2021, he gave her $4 million to get re-elected.
END TIMES PROPHECY: “The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast. Its kingdom was plunged into darkness, and people bit their tongues in pain.” – Rev 16:10 NABRE [7:36] – Various Catholic mystics and saints have talked about receiving messages about a three day period of darkness which may or may not be the Fifth Bowl. The video covers what the Catholic Church’s official teaching is and then goes over what the various saints and mystics who have told us. You can buy blessed candles at the link.
ENVIRONMENT: Yet another piece of evidence that the “climate crisis” is just another tool in the Global Elites’ arsenal to take over the world. People who live in crowded cities are easier to control than people who live on and off of their own land.
NEWSPEAK: “The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.” – Phillip K Dick
NEW WORLD ORDER: Remember how Amazon made a ton of money during the lockdown? Remember how only mega-retailers like Wal*Mart were allowed to stay open, while small businesses that sold the exact same things were forced to close? Remember how a great many of those small businesses never reopened?
In 2020, Amazon opened an online drug store that allows customers to order medication or prescription refills, and have them delivered to their front door in a couple of days. Last year, it began offering its Amazon Care telemedicine program to employers nationwide. And now it’s buying One Medical, a subscription app that offers 24/7 on-demand telehealth services as well as same-day or next-day appointments.
S&G: The following are common ways that a sexual predator grooms a victim –
- Cultivating a positive reputation within the community
- Befriending the child’s family
- Singling the child out as a special friend
- Isolating the child
- Slowing pushing physical boundaries
- Introducing sexualized topics or imagery
- Isolating the child from his or her parents
- Encouraging the child to keep secrets
When it was revealed that some priests and bishops had been doing this stuff to minors, Lefties screamed bloody murder. But now that it’s teachers doing it in the public schools, suddenly it’s not evil and how dare we call it grooming! Yeah. No.
TWITTER: After censoring all content from The Epoch Times, the twerps at Twitter got so majorly lambasted that they backed off.
GRAMMY NOTES: I soooo want a picture of my girls wearing these! LOLOL
One response to “Bits & Bytes”
Gordon R. Dickson wrote the first good, reality based apocalyptical book I ever read, Wolf and iron. All computers shut down and civilization dies. A young college professor (non-surval type) is frozen out of a small Michigan college town. Fearing for his life, he takes a solar-powered bicycle and heads west to look for an older brother who ranches in Montana. On the way, we see how things break down, gangs, slavery, raiders, starvation, and he finds love, as well. And a young wolf who had been chained since he was a pup. Well written, thoughtful, very much an adventure.
