Is the Pope Above Canon Law?

On January 13, 2013, the Canon Law Made Easy website in a article titled “Can a Pope Ever Resign?” said in speaking of a canon 332.2 phrase on a pope’s resignation having to be “properly manifested” said:

“[T]he Pope is the Church’s Supreme Legislator, he can interpret this law however he wishes.” [https://canonlawmadeeasy.com/2013/01/03/can-a-pope-everresign/]

On the other hand, the respected Fr. Brian Harrison in speaking on is the pope above canon law thought the statement “the pope is “above canon law” is a half-truth” according to a post on the Catholic Answers website:

The article “White Smoke, Valid Pope” by Fr. Brian Harrison (March 2001) makes an interesting but flawed argument against the sedevacantists’ claims about Rome. Fr. Harrison argues from canon law regulations on heresy and excommunication in order to show that a pope who incurs latae sententiae excommunication would be a valid but illicit pope. He writes, “While this [heretical] pope would offend God gravely by exercising his office while under an (undeclared) excommunication, all his official acts still would be juridicially valid.”

These arguments that place the pope under the rule of canon law are futile. A closer scrutiny of the situation would reveal that the pope answers only to God: The pope is the author of canon law, which depends solely on his will. Excommunication is a disciplinary decision of the Church, and thus the qualifications that automatically incur excommunication-such as advising someone to have an abortion-are subject to change.

Fr. Harrison writes, “A pope who began his pontificate as an orthodox Catholic but became a formal heretic or apostate during his pontificate would thereby legally incur excommunication.” That statement is an impossibility. The pope is above canon law and is not subject to excommunication.

Thank you for all the good your organization has done. Your magazine is the most interesting and informative Catholic publication I have encountered.

Fr. Harrison replies: To say that the pope is “above canon law” is a half-truth. It is true in the sense that the pope has no superior on earth who could declare, enforce, or remove any penalty against him for breaches of the law. But it is false insofar as it means that he could never incur, in God’s sight, any such penalty or that he has no moral duty to act and govern the Church according to the law that he himself officially recognizes as valid at any given moment in his pontificate.

Canon law includes numerous prescriptions of divine law that no pope can ever overturn (see for example cc. 330, 925, 849, 864, and 1024 in the 1983 Code). Even the “merely” ecclesiastical law contained in the Code is for the universal Church, and the pope is morally obliged to be the first in giving a good example by living and acting as a law-abiding Christian. Of course, as supreme legislator, the pope may change any ecclesiastical law by officially and expressly abrogating it or derogating from it. But if he were to decree something which broke the law-that is, which acted against an existing ecclesiastical law without expressly adding a clause derogating from that law-then canon law itself (c. 38, 1983 Code; c. 46, 1917 Code) states that such a lawless action, even on the part of a “competent authority” (and that, of course, includes the pope) would have “no effect.” [https://www.catholic.com/magazine/print-edition/is-the-pope-above-canon-law]

Francis Notes:

– Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

“[T]he Pope… WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See.”
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said “the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church.”

“A brilliant Victorian scientist delighted in declaring that the child does not see any grass at all; but only a sort of green mist reflected in a tiny mirror of the human eye.

“This piece of rationalism has always struck me as almost insanely irrational.

Long before he knows that grass is grass, or self is self, he knows that something is something.

Spider-Man vs. Porn 

Steve Ditko, the original artist and co-creator of the Spider-Man comic, which was a record-breaking hit movie, was the Greta Garbo of comic books. 

Refusing to give interviews for 20 years, he, at the time of the movie release, refused interviews for major articles about him by the Los Angeles Times and one of Canada’s leading newspapers, the National Post.

Ditko, however, explained his philosophy of art in a narrative on a 1987 video titled “The Masters of Comic Book Art,” hosted by author Harlan Ellison. In his introduction, Ellison dismissed Ditko’s plea that heroes in art and literature be measured by the moral courage shown in objective good vs. evil choices. 

The artist now seems prophetic for saying in the show that if we glorify the anti-hero in art, then anti-life and violence will come into our culture. The anti-heroes of the Columbine-like killings in public schools and the Sept. 11 terrorists seem to justify his claim. 

What our American and global culture needs are heroes as models. In the program, the artist and co-creator of Spider-Man says, “Aristotle said that art is more important than history. History tells how man did act. Art shows how man should and could act. It creates a model.

“The self-flawed and anti-hero provide the heroic label without the need to act better. A crooked cop, a flawed cop, is not a valid model of a good law enforcer,” Ditko said in the program. “An anti-cop corrupts the legal good, and an anti-hero corrupts the moral good.” 

Spider-Man as a Model for Good

The power of Ditko’s art has in fact influenced youth toward good. In the fall 2001 issue of the Jesuit, a teenager named Pedro tells how he was inspired to go to college by Spider-Man’s message. 

“Spider-Man got his power when he was a teenager and wasn’t sure how to use it,” Pedro explains. “So his grandfather [actually uncle] told him, ‘With greater power comes greater responsibility.’ That’s the way it is at Cristo Rey. We’re learning to make the world a better place. We’re going to go to college and give a whole lot back from what we’ve been given.”

Some are saying that Spider-Man is even a type of Christ. In his essay for the video, Ditko seems at times to be describing Spider-Man as well as Christ. He said, “Early comic book heroes were not about life as it is, but creation of how a man with a clear understanding of right and wrong and the moral courage to choose acts even if branded an outlaw.”

On the Internet, I found the testimony of a man who used Ditko’s art to turn to God. Mark Dukes, now a deacon of the African Orthodox Church, said:

“My father wasn’t around. My mother was a single parent. It was a vacuum in my life. Who am I supposed to be? How am I supposed to be?

“For me, Spider-Man really resonated. Spider-Man’s alter ego was Peter Parker, who was a nerd. And I didn’t feel like I was a cool guy either. Spider-Man was disliked and feared. Everyone thought he was a crook, but he was a good guy. No one gave him any respect but he continued to do good even in the face of all that.

“He would sacrifice himself, get beat up and then people would say ‘Ahhh. Spider-Man! Run. He’s going to do something to us!’ And really he had just now saved the world. That is very saintly.

“For me, Spider-Man was a type of Christ. He went through suffering just to do good. And he continued to do it even in the face of everyone misunderstanding him and hating him.”

Spider-Man, Icon Art and Invisible Realities

Dukes is an artist of Orthodox icons for churches, which is art that doesn’t at times have the same perspective or photo-realistic graphics, like Ditko’s early drawings of Spider-Man. 

Blake Bell, creator of Ditko.Comics Web site, said:

“Visually, Ditko had what most people would consider a cartoony style, but his work was far more real than the “photo-realist” comic artists that would appear on the scene in the following 20 years. 

“His was more real because the visual laws defined in his universe were so real, so consistent, that one suspends disbelief to its maximum.”

Icon historian Andrei Navrozov, in the June issue of Chronicles, agrees with Bell that art can either be about “gaining a deeper understanding” of reality by symbols or can “mimic” reality. 

Perspective was first invented in 470 B.C. by Agatharchus as a means of “geometric illusionism” to mimic reality in stage sets for theater, according to the icon historian.

Navrozov said the “theater set is conceived as a fiction, whereas a [icon] painting is born as an attempt at truth of life, an attempt that in no sense compromises the integrity of the original [reality]. … They are symbols of real life, not lifelike imitations of reality.

“There is no deeper conflict in history than that between these opposing views of art. ‘Is art to serve reality and the individual under God or is it to serve [materialistic] realism and the masses under communism?”

Navrozov shows us that the modern battleground against God and reality is imagery and the imagination. Michael O’ Brien in “A Landscape with Dragons: The Battle for Your Child’s Mind” said that the imagination is the way that mankind comprehends “God’s territory” and his created “invisible realities.”

The modern imagination, according to O’Brien, has lost “God’s territory” by returning to its “pre-pagan split in consciousness,” which is the Gnostic rejection of the “sacramental” unity of spirit and matter, the addiction to occult tales of will to power like Harry Potter, and the relativistic denial of good and evil with ends-justify-the means storylines.

J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” is for O’Brien a prime example of a return to the Western Christian epic tradition of the moral imagination, which comprehends “God’s territory” and his created “invisible realities.”

O’Brien said, “The discernment of the right paths that must be taken, if good is to triumph, is dramatized in the myriad geographical, emotional, spiritual, and symbolic choices faced by the questers. In each of these, Tolkein’s world is faithful to the moral order of the universe, to the absolute necessity of freedom. Middle-earth is a “sacramental” world, an “incarnational” world. … Spirit [invisible realities] and matter are never portrayed as adversaries.”


Western Culture Based on Reality and God

The Western Christian culture was rooted in this service to reality and God. Reality was the belief in the objectivity of things that are both material and spiritual. During the last two to five centuries, materialistic modernity has been the adversary of this spiritual and matter “incarnational” worldview. 

This “incarnational” reality was rooted out and refilled with the lone materialistic science and “realism” in art worldview – in which reality was contained only within material objects that could be tested or seen. 

Spiritual (invisible) realities like God, love, beauty, responsibility and free will were neither seeable, material nor testable, so they were not within modernity’s realism. 

Modernity attacked the primacy of realistic philosophies such as Thomism and realistic symbolic literature like Dante’s spiritual epics and Shakespeare’s dramas contrasting persons who were symbols of the conflicting real worldviews of modernity and the older realistic philosophy. 

Hamlet’s “To be or not to be?” illustrates what the two cultures were in conflict about. In our time, Clinton (“What is the definition of is?”) is the symbol of modernity’s denial of “to be” or objective truth or falsehood.

Modernity, in its desire to stamp out the Christian culture, dislodged Thomism realistic philosophy and realistic symbolic literatures with Pavlovian behaviorism as well as the materialistic reductive studies and application of art, which represented only material acts. Such as Freud’s deterministic reduction of all symbols of the mind to represent only the physical acts of sex and Picasso’s sexual anti-art. 

This cramped reality of only the materially seeable or testable led to rootlessness and alienation, which was so unbearable to modern man that there was a reaction. According to philosopher Allan Bloom, Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophy of disbelief in all reality, seeable or unseeable – material or spiritual – became the language of the American reaction. 

Friedrich Nietzsche’s values philosophy led to the subjectivity of all concepts of objective truth, which included good and evil. 

Many will remember when President Reagan called the USSR “the evil empire”; he was roundly criticized for violating the new language of “beyond good and evil.” This language of value relativism allows for neither the words nor the symbols of evil and good. 

Nietzsche’s anti-reality philosophy of “God is dead” led to the anti-heroes of politics and art. 

In society this led to the denial of the concepts of absolute truth and the law of identity in reality by modernist artists such as Pablo Picasso and by politicians such as Clinton. This rejection of good and evil in turn led to the degrading of women and sexuality. 

In the case of Picasso, E. Michael Jones in “Degenerate Moderns” says:

“His break with the traditions was an index of his hatred not only toward the spiritual values of the West but toward the human body and spirit that the West prized as good. In the end, the only thing that Picasso portrayed realistically was the woman’s crotch. Modern art had returned to its roots, and the gaping crotch was the only thing now that could keep the aging Picasso in touch with the real world.”

Spider-Man the Hero 

On the other hand, the hit Spider-Man movie may be a sign that our society wants to go back to the culture that Nietzsche, Picasso and Clinton rejected – a culture that was able to see the objective reality of God, love, beauty, responsibility, free will and the honorable hero.

In the climax of the movie, at the top of a bridge, the Green Goblin’s hand holds up the woman that Spider-Man loves and in the other hand he holds a cable with a tram full of children dangling at the other end. 

Then the villain lets them fall to their deaths. As he does this, he gives Spider-Man a choice by saying, “You can save either the girl or the children.”

Spider-Man, almost miraculously, saves both. For some, this is symbolic of the need in our society to return to the Christian tradition of men retaking the heroic responsibility of showing love by committing both to his woman and the fruit of their love through “better or worse” for life. 

As our hero slowly lowers, by the cable, his love and the children to safety, he is repeatedly knocked around by the Green Goblin.

The Goblin taunts him to let go and save himself, which would mean the deaths of those he is lowering. But as the villain zeros in for the kill, Spider-Man is ready to give his life for others, as another hero did 2,000 years ago.

With the help of New Yorkers, Spider-Man saves his love and the children and defeats the Goblin, who finally begs for mercy. As our hero is about to give him his hand, the villain sends his high-tech vehicle to kill Spider-Man from behind. Spidey avoids the vehicle and it ends up killing the Goblin.

This is the Christian message in a symbolic nutshell.

God will forgive anyone no matter what the offense, with only one exception. The only offense God can’t forgive without destroying our free will is one’s choice to reject mercy. By the Judas choice, one freely sends oneself to where God is not, which is the definition of hell.


Pornography and Clinton the Anti-hero

The Democrats and their public relations agency, the media, are at the other end of the symbolic spectrum, as real-life anti-heroes who use the seduction marketing trick of association to sell lies. 

Years ago, in Catholic books, association meant personal relationships with good or bad companions – friendships that led to depravity or honorable lives.

Association now means creating the false impression that a product, place, thing or politician is like the symbol he figuratively stands next to. Nike shoes are “good” because stars like Michael Jordan wear them, or toothpaste will make you popular because that’s what happens in the commercial.

It’s a con job to sell products and politicians. Sadly, the shadier part of our economic culture is based on this tactic. This shallow magician’s trick, as with all lies, leads to meaninglessness and despair.

The selling of pornography to the masses by associating it with constitutional freedoms would make our founding fathers turn over in their graves. 

Porn is not only bad, it is also an empty evil that can only mimic reality. It’s men having imaginary relationships with glossed-over images of what was once a picture of a real woman, betraying her most intimate self and future relationships. The emptiness keeps multiplying.

Porn is not symbolic of real life, but a lifelike imitation of reality. 

As Navrozov said, “There is no deeper conflict in history than that between these opposing views of art. ‘Is art to serve reality and the individual under God or is it to serve [materialistic] realism and the masses.”

The marketing and selling of porn brings us to Bill Clinton, who, despite promises to the contrary, disrupted the “obscenity prosecution” of Ronald Reagan’s task force, which had the porn industry in “serious trouble in the late ’80s and early ’90s.”

Culture War editor E. Michael Jones said, ” This [Reagan] task force caused a major rollback of the porn industry during the late ’80s and early ’90s. … Florida, according to Sears, was on its way to becoming a porn-free state – except for one county, whose District Attorney inexplicably refused to prosecute cases. That county was Dade county and the name of the DA was Janet Reno and she became the Attorney General when William Jefferson Clinton took office in 1992. That event signaled the end of the federal task force to prosecute pornography.” 

Clinton lived the message. He was the presidential X-rated soap opera star for the $10 billion annual pornography industry. 

Our society was willing to accept Clinton as an anti-hero. And as Ditko said, “[A]n anti-hero corrupts the moral good.” 

His presidential movie star appeal and the porn industry’s money helped his party by association to sell porn, homosexuality, abortion and masturbation all the way down to the elementary schools. 



Mr. Clinton, There Is an Is

A few years ago, I spoke with a Texan director of a crisis pregnancy center who has saved thousands of unborn babies. We spoke of a pro-life group whose top priority – to put it mildly – was not saving as many babies as possible. He said to stay away from them because they are “spiritual masturbators.” 

I love new word combinations, so I researched it to see where it would take me. I found masturbation to be a good metaphor for the spiritual direction our society is taking. 

“The ultimate direction of masturbation always has to be insanity,” Norman Mailer said. If one has, for example, the image of a beautiful sexy babe in masturbation, one still doesn’t know whether one can make love to her in the flesh. All you know is that you can violate her in the brain. … But, if one has fought the good or evil fight and ended with the beautiful sexy dame … one has something real to build on.”

Masturbation – as the pornography industry knows – is a profitable lie. For example, if someone says he had sex with a porn star and he didn’t, it is a lie. If one imagines having sex with a porn star, it is still an untruth. The imagination is used to reach unreality.

In contrast to this abuse, the imagination can be used to reach into deep reality. As Thomas Aquinas also demonstrated, the mind can grasp the realities of love, truth and God using the phenomena of the imagination and reason. One only need read Shakespeare or G.K. Chesterton to see the imagination grasping deep truths.

Chesterton, in a book on Thomas Aquinas’ philosophy, shows how the reason and imagination can work together to reveal the philosophical reality of being:

“A brilliant Victorian scientist delighted in declaring that the child does not see any grass at all; but only a sort of green mist reflected in a tiny mirror of the human eye.

“This piece of rationalism has always struck me as almost insanely irrational. If he is not sure of the existence of the grass, which he sees through the glass of a window, how on earth can he be sure of the existence of the retina, which he sees through the glass of a microscope. … [T]he child is aware of Ens [being]. Long before he knows that grass is grass, or self is self, he knows that something is something. Perhaps it would be best to say very emphatically [with a blow on the table], There is an Is … a thing cannot be and not be. Henceforth, in common or popular language, there is false and true.”

The masturbator who imagines he is with the porn star is not in is – or, in common language, he is in falsehood. His body and imagination are moving – as moderns would say, progressing – but the direction of his mind is toward unreality. The porn addict and people like Clinton must always ask for the definition of ‘is’ because they are living in a lie.

Once one denies absolute truth and the law of identity, he will live in a lie. Ditko said, “Aristotle formulated the law of identity. A is A. A thing is what it is. It has a specific nature and identity. It cannot contradict itself and be a lie.”

Our society has this choice. 

It can either go the Clintonian direction toward the unreality of the pornography industry, which does not want an is because then it would have to be morally responsible. 

Or it can go in the direction of the reality that Ditko points to, where there is an is, as well as the reality of God, love, beauty, free will, responsibility and the honorable hero.

“Deaths of Elderly Who Recovered From COVID-19, but Died After Vaccine, Raise Questions”

The Epoch Times reported the “Deaths of Elderly Who Recovered From COVID-19, but Died After Vaccine, Raise Questions”: 

Two small clusters of deaths after COVID-19 vaccination have been reported among nursing homes in Kentucky and Arkansas.

In Kentucky, four seniors died the same day of their vaccination on Dec. 30, 2020; three of the four reportedly already had had coronavirus prior to getting vaccinated.

In Arkansas, four seniors died at a long-term care facility about a week after their vaccination. All tested positive for COVID-19 after vaccination. [https://www.theepochtimes.com/deaths-of-elderly-who-recovered-from-covid-19-but-died-after-vaccine-raise-questions_3692259.html]

Blaze Media: “Violent Antifa Protesters turn on Biden”

 Blaze Media reported that “Violent Antifa protesters turn on Biden”:

Violent protesters descended on Portland late Saturday, an almost weekly occurrence, this time rioting over President Joe Biden’s administration reopening a controversial migrant center designed to house minors who illegally entered the United States without their parents.

What happened?

Violent protesters, who were reportedly associated with Antifa, marched down the streets of Portland’s Pearl District smashing cars and vandalizing businesses.[https://www.theblaze.com/news/portland-violence-antifa-biden-immigration-migrant-facility]

Francis Notes:

– Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

“[T]he Pope… WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See.”
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said “the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church.”

THEIR HYPOCRISY KNOWS NO BOUNDS

BY: E. P. UNUM

February 28, 2021 

Hypocrisy may be defined as the practice of engaging in the same behavior or activity for which one criticizes another or the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform. Psychologists would suggest that hypocrisy is the failure to follow one’s own expressed moral rules and principles, lending credence to the oft-used phrase “Do as I say, not as I do” or, alternatively, “Rules for thee, but not for me.”
This morning I read in the Atlantic City Press that Boston Schools have suspended Advanced Learning Classes because too many of the students enrolled are White or Asian. The ridiculousness of this action astounds me and flies in the face of everything our nation stands for. Indeed, Thomas Jefferson must be turning over in his grave. You may know that the inscription on the ceiling of the Jefferson Memorial’s Rotunda in Virginia reads “I have sworn before the Altar of God Eternal hostility against any form of tyranny over the mind of man”.
Are we to assume that the people in charge of education in Boston believe that brilliant students should not be allowed to expand their intelligence and grow in favor of making them less intelligent and average when compared to others in their age group? Are we to believe that excelling in academics, athletics, theatre, music or the arts is to be downplayed because these talents and skills are beyond the reach of the average individual? Are we to understand that recognizing superior performance is no longer in fashion or appropriate? Where will the next Jonas Salk, Albert Einstein, or Robert Oppenheimer come from? Where will we find a Neil Armstrong or an Audie Murphy, a Gayle Sayers or Jim Brown? Where will all medical discoveries come from, the innovation in technology, a strong military who twice in the 20th century saved Europe from the depths of Fascism and Nazis, and then rebuilt 19 countries in Europe and the entire nation of Japan in the aftermath of the devastation that was WWII? Have we lost our senses? My most immediate thought in reading this was it reminded me of the Kurt Vonnegut dystopian science-fiction short story published in 1961 entitled Harrison Bergeron In case you have never read this short story, let me briefly summarize it for you:

  • In the year 2081, the 211th, 212th, and 213th amendments to the Constitution dictate that all Americans are hereafter fully equal and not allowed to be smarter, better-looking, or more physically able than anyone else. The Handicapper General’s agents enforce the equality laws, forcing citizens to wear “handicaps“: masks for those who are too beautiful, implant loud radios that disrupt thoughts inside the ears of intelligent people making them average and impose heavy weights for the graceful, strong or athletic.

One April, 14-year-old Harrison Bergeron, an intelligent, athletic, and good-looking teenager, is taken away from his parents, George and Hazel Bergeron, by the government, who exists, they are told to care for their every need. . They are barely aware of the tragedy, as Hazel, Harrison’s mother, has “average” intelligence (a euphemism for stupidity), and George, his father has a handicap radio installed by the government to regulate his exceptional intelligence.
Hazel and George avid fans of the ballet and are watching the ballet on television. They comment on the dancers, who are weighed down to counteract their gracefulness and beautiful physiques. They are also wearing masks to hide their attractiveness. George’s thoughts are continually interrupted by the different noises emitted by his handicap radio, which piques Hazel’s curiosity and imagination regarding handicaps. Noticing his exhaustion, Hazel urges George to lie down and rest his “handicap bag“, which weighs 47 pounds (21 kg) and is locked around George’s neck. She suggests taking a few of the weights out of the bag, but George resists, aware of the illegality of such an action.
On television, a news reporter struggles to read the bulletin and hands it to the ballerina wearing the most grotesque mask and heaviest weights. She begins reading in her unacceptably natural, beautiful voice, then apologizes before switching to a more unpleasant voice programmed by the Handicapper General. She issues a Government Alert that Harrison Bergeron has escaped from the Government Re-educati0n Center. A full-body photograph of Harrison is shown, indicating that he is seven feet (2.1 m) tall and burdened by three hundred pounds (140 kg) of weighted handicaps.
George recognizes his son for a fleeting moment, but before having this thought, it is immediately eliminated by his radio trnsmitter. Harrison himself then storms the television studio in an attempt to overthrow the government. He calls himself the Emperor and rips off all of his handicaps, along with the handicaps of a ballerina, whom he proclaims his Empress. He orders the musicians to play, promising them nobility if they do their best. Unhappy with their initial attempt, Harrison takes control for a short while, and the music improves. After listening and being moved by the music, Harrison and his Empress dance while flying to the ceiling, then pause in mid-air to kiss, another illegal act.
Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, enters the studio and kills Harrison and the Empress with a ten-gauge double-barreled shotgun. The musicians put on their handicaps again after she threatens them at gunpoint, and the television goes dark. George, unaware of the televised incident, returns from the kitchen and asks Hazel why she was crying, to which she replies that something sad happened on television that she cannot remember. He comforts her and they return to their average lives.
So, in the world of Harrison Bergeron, everyone is equal in all respects. Equality abounds! The Government has made certain of that. Because, after all, the Government is all-knowing and exists to care for your every need. 
Of course, this is all science fiction….or is it?
Fast forward to today where we are in 2021. Yesterday, Governor Andrew Cuomo, the man President Biden decreed was the “gold standard” for leadership during Covid, proudly announced that celebratory marriage banquets will now be permitted in New York State. Magnanimous! He then proclaimed the very detailed regulations for what kind of dances are acceptable at these gatherings which, by the way, are limited to no more than fifty people. For example, it is not acceptable to dance with anyone not seated at your table and all dancers must be a minimum of six feet away from one another, so Conga lines or YMCA dances are frowned upon. 
Presumably, the Cuomo Dance Detail will be making the rounds to review all wedding ceremonies to ensure compliance. It also brought back memories of high school dances when the nuns would walk around the dance floor separating couples who were dancing too close, by running a ruler between the startled couple exclaiming “make room for the Holy Ghost”
And you thought you lived in a free country. How foolish of you. Do you really believe we have Freedom of Speech when tech companies in Silicon Valley California can censure or eliminate anything you write?  In New Jersey and other states, attendance at religious services is limited to 25%-33% of parishioners. How about Freedom of the Press? Do we still have it?
But let’s talk a little bit more about hypocrisy:Under the new Biden Administration we have already been treated to the following hypocrisies:
>       Remember Joe Biden on the campaign trail (when he left his basement) shouting “I am not against fracking” and” I will not abolish fracking”? Then, as soon as he was inaugurated on January 20, one of the first things he did was to abolish fracking. But he did not stop with fracking. He abolished oil and gas exploration on federal lands and with the stroke of a pen, shut down the Keystone XL Pipeline, eliminating thousands of jobs and making gasoline, heating oil, aviation fuel, and hundreds of other petroleum-related products significantly more expensive, not to mention the thousands of jobs lost in those industries. In the blink of an eye, Biden crippled the oil & gas industry and wiped away U.S. Energy Independence we achieved under Trump. Today, February 28, 2021, gasoline prices are at $2.89 per gallon for regular gasoline. That is an increase of $.60 per gallon since December 15, 2020….and we are just getting started. How does any of this help America or Americans? >        Four years ago the media was clamoring “Trump is ripping children from the arms of their parents and putting them in cages. Today, Biden is putting children in those very same buildings, which were built by President Obama in his administration, only now they are called “undocumented migrant worker camps” or “Influx Centers”.  >        With no pressure from Republicans or Democrats, Biden voided the U.S. Mexico Accord so that now, American tax dollars can be used to fund abortions done in foreign countries. I notice that Biden likes to make the Sign of the Cross at solemn gatherings making sure the press covers this photo moment so that he can, once again, put on his masquerade as a devout Roman Catholic, which he is not. >       How do you feel about boys competing against girls in athletic events such as track and field, basketball, softball, gymnastics, changing in the girls’ locker room, and accepting awards for performance against girls? Doesn’t matter. Biden issued an executive order so that now, boys can, in fact, compete against girls and all they need to do is say “I feel like I am a female today”. Kind of frightening isn’t it? >        On the campaign trail Biden said he would not raise taxes on Americans earning less than $400,000 per year. But he also said he will abolish the Trump Tax Plan. Of course, the moment he does that, everyone’s taxes will increase. Another hypocrisy. Another lie. >        In the first few days of his Presidency, Biden terminated all constructi0on of the Wall on the U.S. Southern Border because “walls don’t work and walls are not who we are, c’mon man!” Of course today we have four to five blocks of concertina wire (barbed wire) around the Nation’s Capitol with seven thousand National Guard Troops patrolling the grounds. I guess walls don’t work if you are a Republican but they are effective if you are a Democrat. The cost of the National Guard Mission is now about $500 million but the real question is “what are they guarding against?” Where is the threat? Keep in mind, visitors…citizens…cannot get in to see these monuments to our government. Why? >        In the middle of a pandemic when small and intermediate-sized businesses are struggling to survive, House Democrats are pushing a $15 Minimum Wage. Think about the economic consequences of this. Can you spell unemployment?   Tell me, how did Biden do in his undergraduate classes in economics…if he ever took a course in economics. >        Along comes Dr. Anthony Fauci, MD, the darling of the Media and Hollywood Trump-haters; the Prophet of Doom, reminding us that Covid is likely going to be with us well past Christmas and that Americans need to be even more vigilant than before. The all-knowing Fauci recommends that we should all continue to wear masks….hell, to be safe, we should all wear two or even three masks to ensure our safety from a virus that has a 99.96% survival rate. I have a question:  What happens to the tiny virus particles when we use our hands to take the masks off? Do they all disappear like magic because Dr. Fauci willed it so, or do they stay on our hands and when we touch our face we breathe in the virus?  >        Today, teachers refuse to teach because they feel they need to be vaccinated first before everyone else. What will their excuse be after they are vaccinated? Will they then demand that all children in k-12 be vaccinated first before schools open? And what about our children?  Who is speaking up for them? They are being ignored. Kids cannot socialize, play sports, be involved in theatre, music, the arts….aren’t those part of a child’s overall education? Children are not wired to be isolated at home.  >        Then there is the Democrat’s preoccupation with climate change, the so-called existential threat to our planet. They pontificate to us that we are running out of time! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the onetime bartender turned congresswoman proclaimed “we only have twelve (now ten) years left.” And all the democrats nod their heads in agreement as if this concept of climate change is settled science. It is not. Not by a long shot. Wouldn’t you want to hear objective, scientific debates by each side of this question before committing our nation down this path? From my perspective, climate change is hysteria on steroids, akin to the fear-mongering going on by Washington D.C to frighten Americans because, in the final analysis, it is not about climate change or about the Wuhan Virus a/k/a Covid, it is about exerting power and control over the citizenry. Lord Acton said it best:  “All power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” >        By the way, where’s Hunter Biden? Has anyone seen or heard from him? >        When will we hear from the Navy Surgeon opining on President Biden’s Health? >       Incidentally, Epstein did not kill himself. >        Someone send my regards to John Kerry who is busy flying around the world on his private jet burning thousands of gallons of jet fuel and leaving a significant carbon footprint. But of course, Kerry explained this to all of us by saying “this is what is necessary for a man in his position, and as for all of the pipefitters, welders, excavation and electrical engineers who lost their jobs on the Keystone XL Pipeline, John Kerry had a solution: “They can all get jobs making solar panels”  That is vintage John Kerry. Remember the Wizard of Oz? Which one do you think John Kerry was…the Scarecrow, the Lion, or the Tinman? He has to fit one of these because as night follows day, he sure as hell is not a Patriot, and he sure as hell is no expert on climate change. Keep the faith everyone. Remember, we are Americans. We know about sacrifice and we know the value of freedom. No matter what some quiche-eating, landscape painting, bedwetting, card-carrying pinko socialist yells and screams at us, we know how to compete and we know how to win. 
If we stick together and hold true to American ideals, we will prevail. Write your Congressmen and women, write them again and again. Then write your Senators, again and again. Inundate them with your feelings and sensitivities. You hold the power to effectuate change. Believe it and Press on. https://conta.cc/3r6lo88.

THE FAMOUS SICILIAN PRIEST, DON MIUTELLA, HAS PUBLISHED A BOOK (PRESENTLY AVAILABLE ONLY IN ITALIAN) WHICH PROVES THAT Pope Benedict XVI IS THE ONLY TRUE LIVING POPE

NEWS

DON MINUTELLA’S NEW BOOK PROVES BENEDICT XVI IS THE TRUE POPE

EDITORLEAVE A COMMENT

Book Review by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

There is a new best seller in Italy about Pope Benedict XVI. It is entitled, “Pietro Dove Sei?” — “Peter, Where are you?”  And it is about the invalid resignation of Pope Benedict XVI.

The book was written by the famous Sicilian priest, Don Alessandro Maria Minutella, who since 2018 has publicly declared Jorge Mario Bergoglio a heretic, and Benedict as the true Pope.

Father Minutella is the pastor of St. John Bosco Catholic  Church, at Palermo, the capital of the island of Sicily. He is a young priest, who holds a double doctorate. He is a graduate of the Gregorian University at Rome.

The subtitle of the book is “Dossier sulla situazione attuale nella Chiesa Cattolica” — “The Actual Situation in the Catholic Church”

This book was published in Italian in 2020. It is 286 pages, and sells for 10 euro in Italy. It is published by Gamba Edizioni, Verdello (BG), Italy (info@gambedit.com). It is divided into 4 sections, called chapters, and contained an appendix of hyperlinks for reference, as well as a collection of photographs in color in the back.

These 4 divisions each being with a grave question or theme. The first, “Who is Peter?”, which discusses Catholic Teaching on the Office of the Pope, the Vicar of Christ, the Roman Pontiff.

The second division, begins with the question, “Who is the Pope, today?” This part, Don Minutella discusses all the plots and pacts behind the election of Bergoglio and how this makes the Conclave’s choice of him invalid. He follows this exposé with an analysis of Pope Benedict XVI’s declaration of Feb. 11, 2013, to show that it is canonically invalid, and that Benedict XVI remains the holder of the Papal office.

The third, with the theme of Wisdom 21:15, “There is no wisdom, where there is malice”, a theological reflection on the spiritual imprudence in ignoring facts and laws, so as to have one’s own way. In this part, Don Minutella discusses the facts which show that Bergoglio is intentionally a pertinacious, formal public and manifest heretic, and how this makes it impossible that he hold any office or be elected Pope.

The fourth, with a review of the most important prophetic sources, from La Salette, Fatima, Leo XIII, Tre Fontaine, Padre Pio etc., and what they say about the present crisis of two popes, showing how they concord with the facts he has presented above.

The book concludes with a passage which serves also as an excellent introduction. Here is my translation:

The actual situation in the Church is dramatic, so much so that the pastors, theologians, canonists, knowlegeable of the anomaly in course, prefer to gloss over the questions confronted in this book.  The Catechism (of the Catholic Church) has anticipated these dramatic time, when in n. 675 it says:  “before the coming of Christ, the Church must pass through a final test which will strick the faith of many believers. The persecution which accompanies Her pilgrimage on Earth will unmask the ‘mystery of iniquity’ under the form of a religious imposture which offers to men an apparent solution to their problems, at the price of apostasy from Christ, that is a pseudo-messianism in which glorifies himself in the place of God and His Messia come in the flesh”. St. Augustine wrote that the Church in fide virgo, in haeresia meretrix, that is, remains a Virgin in the Faith, but would become a prostitute in heresy. …. In the apparitions of the Holy Virgin in Ecuador, in the 17th century, known as Our Lady of Good Success, it was prophesied, for the time of the final battle, a figure of a high prelate, who will have to govern the Church with strength and courage; he will be another Christ, called to confront the Antichrist.  And all the Catholic people, even the priests, will look upon him as a sure rock.  The prophetic vision, of the remnant, matches perfectly with the catalogue of the medieval monk, Malachy, who lists the popes down to the return of Christ.  After the Gloria Olivae, which has been attributed to Benedict XVI, there will arrive a final pontiff, the Petrus Romanus, who must govern the Church during the last, great tribulation, namely with the Antichrist.  Caterine Emmerich offers some curious details about this new Athanasius who, having succeeded Benedict XVI, will guide the Catholic Church, surviving through it all as the little remnant. As the German mystic says, he will come forth from just outside the City (thus a true Italian), he will be of a noble stock, about 50 years of age, and will dress in red (perhaps a sign of a martyr in suffering and, perhaps, even unto blood). He will take care to obtain the victory of Mary and the triumph of Her Immaculate Heart against the vicious enemies of the Church.  As at Lepanto, during the battle of October 7, 1571, and then at Vienna on September 12, 1683, Christians conquered the formidible Islamic hosts with the Name of Mary, invoked as the “Sacred Generalissima” (a name chosen by Ferdinand II, grandfather of the Austrian Emperor, Leopold I), so that, once again, it will be She herself, the Holy Virgin, who will obtain the liberation of the throne of Peter and the victory of the Church against Her Enemy.

We for our part, let us remain in the truth.

In the Book, Don Minutella in clear popular style lays out the Catholic Doctrine concerning the Pope, the effects of heresy, the impossibility of a heretical pope, as well as the canonical requirements of papal resignation and election, all of which conclude that Bergoglio can never have been validly elected for multiple causes of heresy and vote canvassing, both documentable, and that Benedict XVI has never resigned the papacy, as his behavior and words themselves show.  All of which are facts which every impartial observer can see and recognize, so long as he has yes open to the truth.

The book is written in a simple Italian, and is not difficult to understand for those even with a little knowledge of the language. This is especially true for all those clergy who have studied in Rome, and have acquired some knowledge of the Italian used in theological discourse.  It is a very good introduction to the controversies and written from a high moral regard for the truth and from our duty as disciples of Christ to separate ourselves from the party of the Sadducees who want a career in the Church without faith, and from the party of the Pharisees who want a career in the Church focusing on observances, but ignoring morals.

To my knowledge, this book is being translated into several languages, and in 2021, I look forward to publishing notices for each of them.

I highly recommend this book to all who can read Italian. It is a great gift for that favorite priest or bishop who has studied in Rome.

Be prepared, Biden may ask Kamala Harris to deliver the State of the Union Address

THE CATHOLIC MONITOR

SEARCH

Are “Democrats… Accelerating Plans to Install President Harris” to Replace the Apparently “Mental Acuity Challenge[d]” Biden?

The NOQ Report website thinks that “Democrats are accelerating plans to install President Harris” to replace the apparently “mental acuity challenge[d]” Joe Biden:

Democrats want the nuclear launch codes. They’re angry that Joe Biden didn’t ask Kamala Harris for permission to bomb Syria. They pushed the State of the Union address over “security concerns.” It’s happening, folks. The bait-n-switch from President Biden to President Harris is underway, just like so many Trump-supporters warned for months.

The groundwork continues to be laid for Harris to supplant Biden as President of the United States. This has been the plan all along, but it seems like they’re accelerating their efforts. The likely reason is the fact that his cognitive skills continue to fade, perhaps more rapidly than they had hoped. He’s been showing signs of mental acuity challenges, potentially full-blown dementia, since a few weeks after he announced his candidacy in 2019. We witnessed him slip rapidly, particularly in the months following his nomination. Ever since Inauguration Day, he’s been limited in when he’s allowed to speak.

When he does actually speak, it’s almost always a total embarrassment. [https://noqreport.com/2021/02/26/democrats-are-accelerating-plans-to-install-president-harris/]

Francis Notes:

– Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

“[T]he Pope… WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See.”
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said “the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church.”

President Trump’s scheduled address to CPAC on Sunday is assured of a wide audience: those who pretend he is a spent force will be listening to him, even if secretly, more carefully than will his scores of millions of outright supporters. He now occupies the historic role of a formidable exile: Napoleon at Elba (the original Hundred Days), Roosevelt convalescing from polio, Churchill in the wilderness years, de Gaulle at Colombey, Ariel Sharon on his farm, Nixon while Vietnam boiled out of control. President Trump is a hard sell as a successor fitting seamlessly into the role of any of those, but he enjoys an immense following, and those who united to depose him are going to have to do much better than they have in the last month to maintain their coalition and prevent his successful return, if he wants to make one, and stages it carefully.

Are We Really In A New‘Post-Trump’ Era?
Don’t Bet the Farm


By CONRAD BLACK

February 26, 2021

These are only the opening days of what is supposedly the post-Trump era, and whether the country has really seen the last politically of Donald Trump is a matter that depends upon Donald Trump. The principal Trump-hate outlets are still pleased to refer to him as “the disgraced former president” but, of course, he has not been disgraced and there is no indication that he will be.
All of the Democrats and about a third of Republican officeholders are engaged in an elaborate and strictly observed pretense that President Trump was a freakish and horrifying interruption of the normal, serene, bipartisan devolution of events in Washington. Like a dreadful meteor, he came and he went, pushed into the instantly forgotten past by a united effort of civilized Americans.
This is only the first and most wishful phase of the Biden Administration, which, although it has shown no open recognition of the fact, owes its existence to the support of a substantial number of traditional Republicans offended by the former president’s radical ideas and comparatively uncouth political manners. They more than balanced the sharp increases President Trump achieved for the Republicans in votes from African Americans and Latinos, along with traditionally Democratic working-class voters.
There appears to be a consensus to restore the traditional honeymoon for an incoming president, something that was withheld from Mr. Trump uniquely among presidents of the past century and is a useful and becoming practice to retrieve. President Biden, an admirer of Franklin D. Roosevelt, has invoked the “Hundred Days”of the profound legislative and executive reform with which FDR began his first administration in 1933 to address the most pressing aspects of the Great Depression, starting with the collapsed banking and stock and commodity exchange systems that greeted him on Inauguration Day.
Roosevelt had a broad mandate to do whatever he judged necessary to arrest and reverse the economic and psychological depression that was strangling the country, and many of his imaginative measures were passed virtually without opposition and some with almost no debate.
Roosevelt concluded his famous inaugural address, which opened with the assertion that “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” with the following:
“We do not distrust the future of essential democracy. The people of the United States have not failed. In their need they have registered a mandate that they want direct vigorous action. They have asked for discipline and direction under leadership. They have made me the present instrument of their wishes. In the spirit of the gift, I take it.”
What followed was a thunderous sequence of measures of relief and reform that reversed the downward economic spiral, reinvigorated the country psychologically, and provided workfare employment and income for the 30% of the workforce sidelined at a time when no direct federal assistance existed for them.
Conditions are not remotely similar now. Biden has no such mandate, and with all due respect, his political circumstances, personality, culture, and qualities of leadership, are not much reminiscent of FDR. 
Mr. Biden’s 100 days show no sign of being particularly productive or even of being used by the new administration to present the kind of innovative legislation that poured out of the government in the early Roosevelt days.
Mr. Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill only addresses the public health crisis with approximately 10% of the funds sought. No other significant legislation has been presented in the first month of these 100 days and, of course, a good deal of time and attention was frivolously squandered in the fatuous impeachment of the departed former president.
While the new president has been commendably discrete in his comments about his predecessor, his partisans give little evidence of being psychologically capable of letting go of Trump-hate as a motive and preoccupation. Celebrations of his departure are not going to engage the public’s interest or satisfy its appetite for good government beyond what is left of these 100 days, if they even manage to do so until then.
It should be clear by the end of April if this president is prepared to be carried along by the far-Left elements of the fragile Democratic coalition, which the informal leader of the leftist Democrats, Senator Bernie Sanders, reckons to be between 35% and 40% of the party’s supporters. Or we’ll see if Biden can firm up the traditional moderately left-of-center section of the Democrats in which he served for six terms as a senator himself and two terms as vice president.
This moderate element could collaborate with Republicans and legislate sensibly in the national interest. They would do so at the likely expense of a schism among the Democrats, at least as severe and much more closely dividing that party than the present unequal contest between the anti-Trump Republicans and the majority within the GOP who support the former president.
This is the fundamental problem with the theory that Trump was just a regrettable passing accident. He espouses a set of policy options that commands the adherence of approximately half the voting population.
In four embattled years as president, he achieved more than any previous occupant of that office since Ronald Reagan’s comparatively tranquil two terms, and, apart from Reagan, since the highly successful first term of Richard Nixon 50 years ago.
He will not be so easily dismissed and the honeymoon level of approval accorded Joe Biden — 50-odd percent, depending on the poll — will be a levitation if he doesn’t start to build a track record of genuine accomplishment. Re-entering the Paris Climate Accord, being kind to Iran’s ayatollahs, and handing a blank check to the ecological zealots while relaxing security at the southern border is no substitute for governing and doesn’t make much sense as policy, either.
Words and symbolic gestures come easily but the confirmation of senior administration appointments is moving slowly and was not accelerated by the disturbingly unconvincing performance of attorney general designate Merrick Garland in front of the Senate this week.
Mr. Biden will have to perform, and the immediate former president has the opposite problem: silence becomes him and comparative quiet will be adequate to maintain his approval rating amongst those who have followed him. While Mr. Trump haters will never be appeased even by the attrition of time, the 10 million or so quasi-Republicans who deserted him could be convinced by a more statesmanlike and judicious former president that they may have underestimated his virtues, especially if the Biden Administration does not gain any traction in a sensible direction.
President Trump’s scheduled address to CPAC on Sunday is assured of a wide audience: those who pretend he is a spent force will be listening to him, even if secretly, more carefully than will his scores of millions of outright supporters. He now occupies the historic role of a formidable exile: Napoleon at Elba (the original Hundred Days), Roosevelt convalescing from polio, Churchill in the wilderness years, de Gaulle at Colombey, Ariel Sharon on his farm, Nixon while Vietnam boiled out of control.
President Trump is a hard sell as a successor fitting seamlessly into the role of any of those, but he enjoys an immense following, and those who united to depose him are going to have to do much better than they have in the last month to maintain their coalition and prevent his successful return, if he wants to make one, and stages it carefully.

How dare the so-called pro-family National Catholic Register have a writer who claims the naked images Francis called “pachamama statues” can by “a strong case to be… [naked images of] the Blessed Virgin Mary.”

NCRegister Armstrong’s Blasphemy on Naked Pachamamas: “There is a Strong case to be made that they Represent the [Naked] Blessed Virgin Mary” against the Words of Francis 

Back on October 25, 2019, LifeSiteNews reported the words of Francis:

“I would like to say a word about the pachamama statues that were removed from the Church of Traspontina.”
(LifeSiteNews, “Full transcript of the Pope’s comments on pagan ‘Pachamama’ statues,” October 25, 2019)

The National Catholic Register’s contributing writer Dave Armstrong (according to the journalism website muckrack.com) is in a dilemma because either he is calling his beloved Francis a liar or he is saying statues which Francis called “the pachamama statues” are not what he called them, but instead “a strong case can be made that the naked images “represent the [naked] Blessed Virgin Mary”:

“There is a strong case to be made that they [the naked images Francis called “pachamama statues”] represent the [naked] Blessed Virgin Mary.”
(patheos.com/blog/davearmstrong, “‘Pachamama’ [?] Statues: Marian Veneration or Blasphemy Idolatry?,” November 5, 2019)

How dare the so-called pro-family National Catholic Register have a writer who claims the naked images Francis called “pachamama statues” can by “a strong case to be… [naked images of] the Blessed Virgin Mary.”

Maybe someone needs to organize a Catholic boycott of the National Catholic Register.

The Catholic Monitor commenter Richard W Comerford had this to say about Armstrong and his collaborator Mark Shea:

Unknown said…What Happened?

Once Mr Mark Shea (who was booted by the Register) and Mr Armstrong both wrote inspiring Catholic works. Both were unflinchingly pro-life. Then something happened?

Messrs. Shea and Armstrong now appear to hold the ordinary per-sitters in contempt. Mr Shea, once my hero, seems to have adopted the Democrat party platform.

What a waste! Hopefully i have misjudged the situation and am wrong.

God bless

Francis Notes:

– Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

“[T]he Pope… WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See.”
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said “the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church.”

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows “sexually active adulterous couples facing ‘complex circumstances’ to ‘access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'”

–  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

“The AAS statement… establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense.”

– On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

“Francis’ heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents.”

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.

Although censorship and cancel culture are becoming a fashionable way to silence and punish conservative viewpoints, no one is calling for the censorship of the entertainment industry. But the industry’s self-proclaimed concern over “gun violence” would carry more weight if it weren’t continuously promoting violence.

Hollywood’s Gun-Violence HypocrisyInstead of reflecting on its own considerable role in creating a culture of violence, Tinseltown tries to blame others.



By: BRIAN MARK WEBER

The Patriot Post 


February 26, 2021


In the wake of the horrific school shootings at Sandy Hook and Parkland, Hollywood responded with public service announcements denouncing “gun violence” and supporting gun control efforts such as the March for Our Lives rally. But in both instances, instead of doing some serious soul-searching and accepting responsibility for creating a culture of violence, prominent actors lashed out at the Second Amendment, the NRA, and Republicans.
Simply observing that the Left engages in hypocrisy on this issue doesn’t go nearly far enough. The Hollywood elite and their mouthpieces have been peddling violence for decades while decrying America’s “obsession” with guns and violence.
Americans have let them get away with it for too long, and we need to start calling them out for promoting the violence they sanctimoniously claim to deplore.
Now that President Joe Biden is in the White House, the Left is aggressively pushing for more gun control. A report by the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action details a list of priorities that Democrats hope to realize in Biden’s first term.
In order to gin up support for these efforts, the entertainment industry is hell-bent on making sure Americans know whom to blame for gun violence.
As the esteemed John Lott writes, “CBS is in a full-court press for gun control on its evening entertainment television shows. The bad guys are always white supremacists who use machine guns — supposedly AR-15s — to commit mass public shootings. Criminals in Mexico supposedly get machine guns from the United States. A father’s desire to protect his family only leads to tragedy when his daughter gets into the gun safe and uses the weapon in a mass public shooting. And guns in the home pose a danger for children. Gun registration is necessary for solving crime.
The Leftmedia often claims that movies and television have no influence on the way media consumers think and act. If this were true, though, CBS and other networks wouldn’t be trying to turn their viewers into gun control advocates. Instead, they’d be producing movies and television programs with less violence.
Instead, they claim, Americans just can’t get enough of what they’re selling.
A position paper by the American Academy of Family Physicians concludes, “While multiple factors can lead to violent actions, a growing body of literature shows a strong association between the perpetration of violence and exposure to violence in media, digital media, and entertainment.” The paper highlights some troubling statistics when it comes to the prevalence of violence in movies, TV shows, and video games.
But the push to get Biden to implement a broad anti-gun agenda isn’t going to be easy, and that’s causing some on the Left to criticize his lack of action. “Any attempt to repeal liability protections for gun manufacturers will initiate a war with Second Amendment proponents who will look to block any such proposal in court,” says Rick Moran. Fortunately, he adds, “With the Senate currently at 50-50, Biden isn’t likely to get anything done on guns.” At least not legislatively.
One reason for the hesitation among some legislators is the lack of broad public support for gun restrictions. A Gallup poll this past November showed the lowest support for such onerous regulations in four years. Undeterred by this reality, Democrats are pushing Biden to use executive action to bypass the legislative process.
Although censorship and cancel culture are becoming a fashionable way to silence and punish conservative viewpoints, no one is calling for the censorship of the entertainment industry. But the industry’s self-proclaimed concern over “gun violence” would carry more weight if it weren’t continuously promoting violence.
