I mentioned two days ago on a thread about how these “Catholic” Bishops go full SJW over illegal immigration but remain silent in the face of grave evil, and I was told I was guilty of calumny.
It was just a few hours later that the latest bombshell of a decades-long cover up at the highest levels of the Church made the news. It’s not every day validation comes THAT quickly or in such a prominent manner, but…
What are the comments about this scandal on post after post? Along the lines of, “Yeah, everyone knew, but no one could talk about it because he was a powerful Cardinal”.
This, people, is PRECISELY why we much have courage and fortitude and not bend to the threats, name-calling or fear of being disinvited from the ‘right’ cocktail parties. Some of you witnessed how I was attacked just a few weeks ago on my FB timeline for offering gentle correction to a few priests behaving badly, but if you fail to speak up out of cowardice, YOU become culpable for the next victim and the greater scandal that will eventually result.
Losing a FB ‘friend’ is nothing compared to that kind of guilt. Do the right thing, regardless of the consequences! The alternative is too painful, for you, for those you love and those who deserve an advocate.
Thanks to Trump’s fight with the Deep State, regular Americans have gotten a peek under the covers of how the FBI really works.
Previously known only to federal prosecutors, criminal defense attorneys and those targeted by the FBI (such as yours truly):
- FBI agents routinely lie to get warrants, entrap targets, gain indictments and secure plea deals
- The DOJ frequently breaks the law to pressure targets to plead guilty
- No adult citizen, no matter how virtuous, is actually ‘innocent’ under the law (given the number and scope of federal statutes and the intentionally vague nature of many)
- Many “crimes” involve no quantifiable harm and no identifiable victim
90% of the “children” coming across the border aren’t even accompanied by their parents (they are often teenage boys coming to work with relatives in the US). The 10% who ARE separated from their parents pending adjudication have it pretty good in the interim:
When we lived in Guatemala we saw a lot of this – large groups of affluent suburban WASPS who spent thousands of dollars on what was more or less a vacation thinly disguised as missionary work (in a country that has been Catholic for 400 years).
