"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

The guy with the roadkill hair-do and the orange skin IS good for one thing.

Never say I don't give a moron his due, kiddies. Donatella Trumpsky has done the world a great service. He has helped to expose all the fascists hiding behind the word "conservative".

Of course we're used to left fascists who hide behind labels like "liberal" [once upon a time it was a good thing] and "progressive", [never, ever a good thing] but who  knew that the good ol' U. S. of A. was home to a whole bunch of right-fascists pretending to be freedom loving small government types? About 30% of  the people voting in Repansycan primaries this year, in fact. [It's more like 40%, but I'll give some the benefit of the doubt.] Scary, I know, but true.

It's quite simple, kiddies. If you are in favor of giving the government [any government] power, you are a fascist. [One of the bad guys!] It doesn't matter if you say you only want the government to use its power for good [Doctor Octopus, call your office.] because governments [all governments] can't help but use their power for evil purposes like theft, murder, rape, et cetera. That was the genius of the US Constitution before it was hijacked, kidnapped, beaten, bloodied, raped and killed by - you guessed it - fascists. Our government was forbidden everything not explicitly stated in our founding documents. That lasted about one hundred years, kids, and we've been heading downhill fast ever since.

So say what you will about Trumpsky [believe me, I will] but thanks to his cretinous campaign you now know who not to share a beer with.

...Yep, protestantism is nothing but rationalized sexual sin.

I can hear you now, kiddies. "Where's the Love, Fyodor? Don't you know God is Love? You Catholics and your rules - shame on you for making the rest of us feel guilty."

It's not just you prods, I swear. Good Catholics know they're sinners. The Good News is we have ways to fix ourselves. I think I'll keep this post open for a while and work on this theme some more. Stay tuned...

Reaping the protestant whirlwind: Moral relativism disguised as freedom of conscience.

      I was amused today as I listened to the conservatives' favorite serial adulterer, Rash Dimbulb. No, he didn't broadcast any hilarious Trumpsky parodies. [Trumpsky is a Repansycan, you see, and Mr. Dimbulb doesn't make fun of Repansycans unless they are "establishment" Repansycans.] He spent a good hour lamenting the state of decay of our AmeriKKKan kultur, bitching and moaning about how Penile AmeriKKKans are now able to legally follow five year old girls into the Vaginal AmeriKKKans' restrooms. Poor Rash, he has no idea [Or does he?] that he is a carrier of this particular disease rather than a crusader for the cure.

     What? you ask incredulously, Rash Dimbulb is the leader of Conservativism with a big, fat, capital C, how is he part of the problem? The same way the so-called evangelicals are part of the problem, that's how.

     Let's take divorce, for example. I went and borrowed a genuine protestant bible a while ago and looked this up, so I'm not messing with you. [And this was one of those mainstream prod bibles too, like the one Trumpsky stole from his dying mama, not a Unitarian or 7th Day Adventurist bible. Speaking of which, is anyone really surprised by the giant heel turn by Ben Carson? Not me. After I found out he was an Adventurist, nothing could surprise me. How can you trust a guy who doesn't believe in Hell? How can he be considered Christian? Where do the evildoers go when they die, Benny? A Trumpsky resort?] Jesus said no to divorce. Period. No equivocation, no exceptions. It was right there in glorious prod black and white. So how are all these great examples of "Christian" morality getting divorced and remarried every five minutes, swapping out their old, tired, and dumpy wives in exchange for hot, young, new ones who know which side of their bread the butter's on and don't mind fellatio?

Beats me.

You see, kiddies, you can't have morality if everyone gets to decide what morality is. Without unchanging, unchangeable rules, you inevitably get chaos, perversion, and death. Bummer, Doodle. I know, I know.

What's the answer? You're not going to like it, and yeah, it's predictable coming from me...

The Catholic Church.

Why? Because the road to Hell is indeed paved with good intentions.

Maybe I'm not being clear enough. I should continue this in another post entitled...

DAY 3533: Pluto Held Hostage

An icy "spider" has been found on Pluto — a series of fractures in the dwarf planet's surface that extends from ...


New Aspects of Pluto and its Moons ...

After a 9.5-year, 3-billion-mile journey – launching faster and traveling farther than any spacecraft to reach its primary target – New Horizons zipped by Pluto on July 14, 2015. New Horizons’ seven science instruments collected about 50 gigabits of data on the spacecraft’s digital recorders, most of it coming over nine busy days surrounding the encounter.

The first close-up pictures revealed a large heart-shaped feature carved into Pluto’s surface, telling scientists that this “new” type of planetary world – the largest, brightest and first-explored in the mysterious, distant “third zone” of our solar system known as the Kuiper Belt – would be even more interesting and puzzling than models predicted.

The newly published Science papers bear that out; click here for a list of top results.

“Observing Pluto and Charon up close has caused us to completely reassess thinking on what sort of geological activity can be sustained on isolated planetary bodies in this distant region of the solar system, worlds that formerly had been thought to be relics little changed since the Kuiper Belt’s formation,” said Jeff Moore, lead author of the geology paper from NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California.

Scientists studying Pluto’s composition say the diversity of its landscape stems from eons of interaction between highly volatile and mobile methane, nitrogen and carbon monoxide ices with inert and sturdy water ice. “We see variations in the distribution of Pluto's volatile ices that point to fascinating cycles of evaporation and condensation,” said Will Grundy of the Lowell Observatory, Flagstaff, Arizona, lead author of the composition paper. “These cycles are a lot richer than those on Earth, where there's really only one material that condenses and evaporates – water. On Pluto, there are at least three materials, and while they interact in ways we don't yet fully understand, we definitely see their effects all across Pluto's surface.”

Above the surface, scientists discovered Pluto’s atmosphere contains layered hazes, and is both cooler and more compact than expected. This affects how Pluto’s upper atmosphere is lost to space, and how it interacts with the stream of charged particles from the sun known as the solar wind. “We’ve discovered that pre-New Horizons estimates wildly overestimated the loss of material from Pluto’s atmosphere,” said Fran Bagenal, from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and lead author of the particles and plasma paper. “The thought was that Pluto’s atmosphere was escaping like a comet, but it is actually escaping at a rate much more like Earth’s atmosphere.”

SwRI’s Randy Gladstone of San Antonio is the lead author of the Science paper on atmospheric findings. He added, “We’ve also discovered that methane, rather than nitrogen, is Pluto’s primary escaping gas. This is pretty surprising, since near Pluto’s surface the atmosphere is more than 99 percent nitrogen.” 

Scientists also are analyzing the first close-up images of Pluto’s small moons—Styx, Nix, Kerberos and Hydra. Discovered between 2005 and 2012, the four moons range in diameter from about 25 miles (40 kilometers) for Nix and Hydra to about six miles (10 kilometers) for Styx and Kerberos. Mission scientists further observed that the small satellites have highly anomalous rotation rates and uniformly unusual pole orientations, as well as icy surfaces with brightness and colors distinctly different from those of Pluto and Charon. 

They’ve found evidence that some of the moons resulted from mergers of even smaller bodies, and that their surface ages date back at least 4 billion years. “These latter two results reinforce the hypothesis that the small moons formed in the aftermath of a collision that produced the Pluto-Charon binary system,” said Hal Weaver, New Horizons project scientist from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, and lead author of the Science paper on Pluto’s small moons. 

About half of New Horizons’ flyby data has now been transmitted home – from distances where radio signals at light speed need nearly five hours to reach Earth – with all of it expected back by the end of 2016.

“This is why we explore,” said Curt Niebur, New Horizons program scientist at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “The many discoveries from New Horizons represent the best of humankind and inspire us to continue the journey of exploration to the solar system and beyond.”

Holy cow, Pennsylvania, our presidential primary might mean something this time!

Since only 17 of PA's delegates must vote for the statewide popular vote winner on April 26th, Ted Cruz has an excellent opportunity to keep Donatella Trumpsky from reaching the magic 1,237 number. Even now, I can hear poor Trumpsky whining about how he's too stupid and Cruz is too mean. Apparently, The Don'tnald feels he deserves to be given the nomination because he's too special to have to work for it.

Fuck him and the Know-Literally-Nothings who lick his tiny boots.

Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation, Requiescat in pace.

Kiddies, please pray for Mother and ask her to pray for us.

From Catholic News Agency:

'She's in heaven' – Pope Francis on Mother Angelica

Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation founded the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), in 1981, and it has since become the largest religious media network in the world. She passed away March 27 after a lengthy struggle with the aftereffects of a stroke. She was 92 years old.

Pope Francis offered his prayers for Mother Angelica Feb. 12 while on his way to Cuba, and asked for her prayers in return.

But he isn’t the only one who is confident in the nun’s holiness. Several other prelates have voiced their admiration and appreciation for Mother’s contribution to the faith, to the Catholic Church in the U.S., and to the world of Catholic communications, including Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and the Vatican’s spokesman, Fr. Federico Lombardi.

Although Francis has expressed his belief that Mother Angelica is already in heaven, the formal process for declaring her a saint has yet to begin.

Once a cause for her canonization officially opens, the facts and details of her life, as well as the testimonies from those around her, must be obtained and gathered into a lengthy report called a “positio” or “position” and presented to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Causes of Saints.

The congregation must then study the records to determine Mother’s heroic virtue, and eventually look into miracles attributed to her intercession. Only when one miracle has been officially approved can she be declared a Blessed. A second is then required for her canonization as a saint.

However, the Pope could decide to take the route of what’s called an “equipollent,” or “equivalent” canonization, in which he waives the requirement for one or both of the miracles and canonizes the person without them. 
This was the case with St. Pope John XXIII in 2014, for whom the Pope decided to waive the second miracle required for his canonization, and proclaimed him a saint with just one.

In his general audience speech, Pope Francis continued his catechesis on mercy as understood in scripture, finishing his segment on the Old Testament.

He focused on Psalm 51, also referred to as “the Miserere” and which is traditionally understood as King David’s prayer asking for forgiveness following his sin of adultery with Bathsheba.

Francis pointed to the psalm’s opening words “Have mercy on me, O God in your kindness,” saying they are “a moving confession of sin, repentance and confident hope in God’s merciful pardon.”

Alongside his “heartfelt plea” to be cleansed and purified of his sin, King David also praises God’s infinite justice and holiness, the Pope observed.

Not only does he ask to be forgiven of his sin, but he also prays “for the gift of a pure heart and a steadfast spirit, so that, thus renewed, he may draw other sinners back to the way of righteousness.”

“God’s forgiveness is the greatest sign of his infinite mercy,” Francis said, and in off-the-cuff remarks had the pilgrims present at the audience repeat three times that “God's forgiveness is greater than our sin!”

He closed his audience by praying that Mary, the “Mother of Mercy,” would intercede so that all would become “ever more convincing witnesses to that divine mercy which forgives our sins, creates in us a new heart, and enables us to proclaim God’s reconciling love to the world.”

About Me

My Photo
First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
