Jesuit Pope Good for the Church?
I do not think Pope Benedict should have resigned as the Holy Spirit is in charge despite human frailties. As to Pope Francis, I am fearful because Jesuits were supposed to be defenders of the Pope and now that one of their own is Pope, I literally quake in my boots because from my understanding, at least one Pope wanted to disband the Jesuits. Francis has already caused havoc within the church with his comment, “Who am I to Judge,” homosexual pervert priests and bishops that sexually abused altar boys and nearly brought the church crashing down. A second comment was to the effect that it was possible to gain eternal salvation WITHOUT Jesus Christ. There is such a thing as “Baptism of Desire” but that was not spoken to.
Case in point of Jesuits not following commands of the church, in the US, 20 of 25 Jesuit institutions of higher learning are considered not to be catholic. I was Jesuit educated by them at St. Joseph’s in Phila PA Class of 1953, when it was still an all-boys school. In retrospect, I remember how I allowed myself to deviate from the spirit of fasting during Lent and Advent when one of the most popular Jesuit priests on campus schmoozed with the guys, many of whom at that time were war veterans.
Anyway, as to fasting, this Jesuit said it was okay to liquefy solid foods, like for instance, ice cream and bananas in a milkshake. Also as to the two smaller meals not exceeding the main meal, to either eat a really large meal as the main meal, insuring that the other two combined did not exceed that glutinous meal. Or simply eating two big meals insuring that one of them was smaller than the other. I am embarrassed to admit that I did just that on many occasions.
I have two daughters and a granddaughter who chose on their own without prompting from me to attend St Joe’s that had by then become co-ed. My wife and I attended orientation for the first daughter and as we toured the newer buildings and dormitories, I opened the door of one and lying on the bed was a couple, fully clothed, but a scandal nonetheless, with Jesuit open housing policies. Following that we attended Mass in the Field House, and prancing around the altar were scantily clad girls doing some kind of what I have to say was a pagan type ritual.
Recently I have traded e-mails with Notre Dame as regards their conferring their highest honor to President Obama who used the occasion to promote abortion, to seek an impossible middle ground between life and death. My argument with Father Jenkins got carried to Father Privett SJ, President of University of San Francisco, California (USF-CA), and we had many e-mail exchanges in regards to ObamaCare that he favored. I declared that ObamaCare allowed abortion, a fact Fr. Privett denied as he challenged me to show him where that was in the Bill.
My answer was that I did not need to read the Bill that no one read as testified to by the devout (her words) catholic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who infamously said, “We have to pass this Bill so we can see what is in it.” My response to Fr. Privett was that the mere absence of abortion as an exception to coverage, meant that it was in fact covered, something we have unfortunately discovered.
ObamaCare might never have passed muster except for the direct influence and intervention of Sister Carol Keehan, head of the 60,000 Nun Catholic Hospital Association, (CHA). Sr. Keehan falsely reassured Blue Dog Pro-Life Democrat Bart Stupak with a promise of a fake Executive Order denying abortion payments, and a half dozen others that there was no abortion in the ObamaCare Bill, enabling passage by the thinnest of margins. The USCCB Catholic Bishops were basically in favor of this legislation.
Not only that but catholic HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was responsible for writing the 15,000 pages of regulations that forced catholics to pay for abortions, contraceptives, and abortifacients like RU486 that can now be sold without parental consent or prescription, over the counter to girls as low as 11 years old. So if catholics and conservatives are now crying in their beer, they did it to themselves.
ObamaCare is now officially the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that is proving itself to be so unaffordable as it may be the economic train wreck as described by Democratic politicians. ACA implementation is a maze with no exit absent disaster, but the lemmings march on relentlessly toward economic disaster. The only rationale is that this disaster is perhaps the original intent.
Getting back to Fr. Privett, I reminded him that USF-CA was no longer considered to be catholic and I accused him of saying just that, something he denied vehemently. He demanded that I show him in our e-mails where he said that, and I sent him a copy of his earlier e-mail in which he confessed that many believed that to be the case.
His angry retort was that I took his statements out of context, but I quoted his exact e-mail, character for character including his punctuation. His angry response was that he wanted to be removed from my mailing list. How about that. A high powered Jesuit calling quits to a debate of political-religious related issue with the famous, “NO MAS.”
Jesuit Georgetown, the first catholic university in America, invited President Obama to their graduation, and before he spoke, asked Georgetown to cover up the symbols of Jesus so they could not be seen as he spoke, and right, you guessed it, Jesuit Georgetown sold out the Savior to accommodate this Muslim President.
Yes Obama is Muslim, which by Islamic Law is passed from father to son, and since Obama had a Muslim father and Muslim stepfather, he can only leave Islam by death as a heretic as he was baptized, OR Muslims can lie if it advances the cause of Islam.
Obama in an address he gave at the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 25, 2012 (AP), “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.” The latest insult to America is Obama declaring November to be “Muslim Appreciation Month,” no doubt in appreciation for the dastardly deeds of 9/11/2001 and Benghazi 9/11/2012.
So is Obama Christian or Muslim? Obama always sides with Islamist radicals, apologizes to Muslims when he visits their countries, and celebrates Ramadan in the White House with known Islamic terrorist leaders while ignoring the National Day of Prayer.
Obama demeans, insults, and persecutes Christianity by forcing Christians to act against their faith in the name of “Law of the Land,” the exact “Law of the Land that held slavery to be legal, and denied the right of women to vote.
Let the facts speak for themselves, and America should be on guard from the occupier in the Trojan Horse White House. The enemy within is the worst. But Pope John Paul II lent prestige to Islam by listing it in praise ahead of Protestant Christians and Jews in at least one of his letters.
The US is plagued by its own version of Vatican City secrecy and corruption within from top to bottom. At the Vatican, the plague of offending sexual predator priests has yet to be properly addressed in the light of day, while the known homosexual lobby is calling what shots? With God and Jesus Christ effectually criminalized in America, Washington DC cannot expect to fare much better.
