3 August 2016. Sometimes, “Pro-Life” Isn’t What It Appears to Be

00 Oppose the GOP Anti-Life programme 130915

______________________________

Abortion is a sticky topic. We must oppose it, but not all ways of opposing abortion are licit. I’d say that moral persuasion, positive state incentives to bear children (such as one sees in Russia), state subsidies to large families (again, a Russian law), and state-mandated protections for mothers are necessary. Imprisoning women (as the Republicans want to do) just doesn’t help matters to move in a positive direction. The US Republican Party spits on what the Church teaches with its love of Me First Greedster Crapitalism. The Church teaches us that since mankind is fallen, it needs regulation. The Republicans (and Libertarians even more so) praise “enlightened greed” (I kid you not). Therefore, one can support a candidate with a pro-choice plank if the most of their programme is in accord with our social views (but one can’t support pro-choice per se). Likewise, one must reject the Republicans for only giving lip service to Pro-Life. The rest of their programme negates what we hold as Church. There’s no perfect political faction on this earth… remember, the Republicans are lovers of the death penalty, greedy, oppressors of the weak, and warmongers… the Church opposes that.

Sometimes, to be truly Pro-Life, one has to support “pro-choice” candidates. It seems contradictory, but it isn’t. If you support greedsters, hangsmen, and warmongers to “oppose abortion”, you spit on the Lord Christ Himself and trample on His icon. Remember this… the “religious” of His day clamoured for His death… I’d say that they haven’t changed one iota. I’m not alone in thinking that…

Sensationalist Rightwing Post Devoid of Fact… As Per Usual

01 danger.zombies.run

You are now entering a fact-free zone… the lair of the Pro-Lifer… enter at your own risk

______________________________

Read this. This isn’t at all what responsible MDs and scientists are writing in serious peer-reviewed journals. If you wish any information on transsexuality (the actual medical/technical term), you won’t find it in the so-called “Pro-Life” media. It isn’t vetted for accuracy and scientific veracity, so, virtually all of it’s nonsense and/or garbled rubbish. Do remember the faked Planned Parenthood videos. There has yet to be a verified assault on anyone in the ladies’ room by disguised men. I sure haven’t seen it nor have any other gals of my acquaintance seen or heard of such. Have a care with “conservatives”… they believe that “winning is the only thing” and that anything done to win one’s point is legit. I’d advise having as little as possible to do with such people, if you can. They not only hold untrue and bigoted beliefs on transsexuality, they also hold such on many issues. Be wary of them, for they hide their hatred and bias under the Church’s vesture. The times are dark, so, please, do have a care…

8 May 2016. Bernie IS Pro-Life in the Best Possible Way… He Wants to Help Unwed Moms… Unlike the “Pro-LIfers” Who Do Nothing but Wave Placards and Shout

00 Bernie Sanders. Unwed moms. 080516

______________________________

Bernie is pro-life in the best possible way. He wants to see to it that the state aids unwed moms. This would cut down the number of abortions. In fact, some of my “pro-choice” friends said the same thing… “Abortion is a tragedy that we should minimise as much as possible”. Don’t listen to the strident “pro-lifers”… they’re poseurs and hypocrites. They’re for warmongering, giveaways to the Affluent Effluent, and capital punishment. That is, they aren’t pro-life in the best sense at all. The most truly pro-life candidate is a secularist Jew who wants to keep abortion legal… fancy that. Pro-Life is so much more than just mere anti-abortion… anyone who tells you otherwise is a rightwing Judas. There’s no perfect political faction this side of the veil… you have to weigh out the entire programme and then decide. The Sanders agenda is the one that best fits Christian Ethics and Moral Theology (and the practise of the Holy Church over the centuries). Be wary of the ostentatious “religious”… Our Lord Christ called them “whited sepulchres”… they haven’t changed.

6 May 2016. HH Spent Easter at the Дом для мамы (Dom dlya Mamy: House for Mommies)

HH spent Easter at a home for unwed mothers with the inimitable Bishop Panteleimon Shatov. HH doesn’t mouth pro-life… he does pro-life. He doesn’t wave placards… he aids unwed mothers. That’s a lesson for all of us, but especially for a certain loud individual claiming to found a “monastery” in the DC burbs. He’d do better to go to an established house and raise money for unwed mothers… that’d wipe away many of his accumulated sins against believers and clergy…
