GOD GUNS AND GOULASH



Speaking of what the nuts are doing...

The Junker Zuhlsdorf has doubled down on his promotion of firearms TRAINING for all of the faithful regardless of gender (how unusual!) so that they might be prepared for what will come. "It's a sporty world out there, my friends, and it's coming your way."

What?

What's a sporty world?
Sporty: "athletic, fit, active, energetic.
I think we can all agree this is NOT Herr Z's point of reference. No judgement here.  No one will ever accuse Father D of being "sporty" either.
Stylish, smart, jaunty, spiffy: "a sporty outfit."  Perhaps he's ..... No. Tactical Clerical attire, sporty?



Falling short of a call to arms, the provocative Prussian Presbyter attempts to stir the Zombies to at least train themselves in the use of assault riffles like the AR 15, even if they will never own one, "get the training anyway."  All that is missing is a convenient link on his sidebar to an online course taught by one of his advertisers which will give Herr Zuppa di Pesce a kickback for the referral. (Have I recently mentioned Mystic Masculine Monastic Coffee & Tea?)

Donations are down so the paranoia needs to be ratcheted up.

Father D is not anti gun. Father has a concealed carry permit in his two  primary states of residence. Father comes from a family of hunters, and his father hunted deer each year for every possible season (rifle, muzzle loader and bow and arrow) which fed our family with venison in addition to wild turkey and pheasant.
Reasonable usage. Moderation.

  1. I am a 73 year old rc priest. I need to go get gun training? Should I take a gun to the pulpit next time? The seminary never prepared me for this. So much for the so called year of mercy.

  3. It was a few weeks ago now - shortly after the terrorist attacks in Belgium - but this comment from the Reverend Mother deserves parsing:

    6 April 2016
    Violent Death
    I am as horrified as anybody by the unleashing of violent death upon unsuspecting people who have been convicted by no tribunal and are in quite a few cases probably innocent of any deed that could be deemed, in penal terms, capital.


    Mother is, of course, saying that many (most?) of the victims objectively deserved to die in the attacks. So the terrorists' sin was procedural in nature - they forgot to follow due legal process.

    I submit that this comment is as obnoxious and depraved as anything that Zildo has ever written about guns or gays.

  4. I hope it's just contaminated reefer, (although it might be having effect on the mental issues). Either he is attempting to minister to first time pot heads or to survivalists, but can't make up his mind who might have more cash. His scam is always Madison to the East or North or South--can it be he is in clandestine contact with the gun crazies in Idaho who might be talking him through their scam?

    Posted on 21 June 2016 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf


    "I was in Spain recently, having breakfast – as one does – and, while munching the ubiquitous toast with tomato looked up at the TV only to see a discussion of Card. Canizares Llovera and the trouble he was in for giving what sounded like a really good sermon in Valencia.

  8. Agent 00Z After-Action Report

    While in Rome, I got in some great practice time at the Swiss Guard crossbow range before lunching with the Commandant. Afterwards, I had to rush to make it to my many high level meetings with Cardinals Burke and Sarah.
    Once in Spain I immediately began investigating reports of the Church being persecuted and, dear readers, sadly it was clearly in evidence.
    I then presented my findings before a standing room only lecture hall at the venerable Acton U., home of the Invisible Hands. Go Hands! When the applause finally died down, I mingled with some of the brightest and most interesting people in the world.

  9. Z referred to the Orlando Shooter as "queer." I wonder if his blog isn't morphing into something more secular. It seems that the nonreligious/nontheological posts are getting more attention. Like the thread on guns. I wouldn't list gun ownership as hard identity Catholicism, even if some Catholics own guns. What group is he pandering to by referring to the shooter as a rat-bastard queer? Surely not Catholics. Maybe he realizes he needs to appeal to a different audience to keep the money flowing. Lots of talk on his blog about manliness to, the FFLF type. I guess a big gun can even make a little girl manly as Z's excitement over the child shooting whatever it is kind of gun. Catholicism's very own version of a self-hating religious fanatic with a gun.

    1. I was shocked to read his reference to the Orlando shooter. I only hope that some of his readers were as well and will call him on it. I've never registered for his blog because it would take someone 24/7 just to offer a reasonable alternative thought to the shit he puts up there. By the way, I notice that his income for the month, already the 23rd, registers no donations.

  10. PRIESTS NOW SEEKING Z's SAGE COUNSEL!


    ASK FATHER: Can a Catholic help children with dyslexia through a Masonic organization?
    Posted on 23 June 2016 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

    From a priest…
    QUAERITUR:

    I have a parishioner who wants to help children with dyslexia and has found an opportunity with the Children’s Dyslexia Center in ___.
    It is affiliated with the Scottish Rite Freemasons. My parishioner wants to know if he, a Catholic, is permitted to affiliate with Freemasonry in this way. He’s not joining them, but I am uncertain on how I should guide him. Please help.


    "Please help." !!!! LOL!!!

    Among Zildo's remarks:
    The “Shriners” are a type of Freemasonry. They have excellent children’s hospitals. That said, all things being equal, if there are also available a similar Catholic facilities, a Catholic should be inclined to support “our own”.

    That's right. Feel guilty for not paying the larger bills of a Catholic hospital. Feel guilty for going to a hospital that might specialize in your child's condition.

  18. Lacy Boy's Interlinear exegesis of the report about the True Pope's 65th anniversary of sacerdotal ordination. It's a great insight into just how intelligent the Prussian bone head thinks his followers really are:

    “Speaking to Pope Francis and the College of Cardinals gathered inside the Vatican’s small Clementine Hall for the 65th anniversary of his priestly ordination, Benedict said the Greek word “Efkaristomen (let us give thanks),” expresses “all that there is to say” for the occasion.
    Interpreting the True Pope through Lard Ass red Lens:
    [That smacks of Modern Greek. Better is eukaristomen. In his address, Benedict said both versions.] ……..
    ……. “Your goodness is a place in which I feel protected,” he said, and voiced his hope that Francis would be able to “move forward with all of us on this path of Divine Mercy, showing Jesus’ path to God.”
    Let Lacy Boy’s reader take note in red again:
    [Very gracious.] ……..
    ……Cardinal Muller gifted (the Hermeneut doing his reprise in red: [ = gave] Benedict several copies of a book containing his homilies on the priesthood printed specifically for the occasion of his anniversary. Benedict in turn gave one to Pope Francis.
    In his brief, off-the-cuff speech, Benedict thanked both Cardinal Sodano and Cardinal Muller for their speeches, and for the book.
    ….And, as the censorious anal retentive would say in even more red:
    [And he didn’t say anything confusing.]

    Is his some kind of Christian blog? The sheer lunacy of "just get the gun training!" is now followed by ironclad predictions of certain death and terror.

    ISIS has said that it will attack Rome. Do we believe them? Think about it. They must attack Rome. It’s symbolic of everything they are about.
    Moreover, today there met the “leaders” of these USA, Canada and Mexico (whence are rushing into these USA who knows who). Brexit took place a few days ago. The EU is shredding. Istanbul was attacked. These brain-trusts led off with global warming and butterflies.
    Meanwhile, the Bloody Month of Ramadan continues until 5 July, a day after an important anniversary in these USA.

    Dear readers, this is coming to a town near you. Don’t brush this off with a shrug, saying, “It’ll never happen here.” Bad things always happen to someone else … until they happen to you.

    But don't worry; Zildo will be mincing with the eX(XXL)traordinary Ordinary for Suffering Christians Around the Globe. Morlino will be hitting the Throne while Zed wipes. That sounds so exhausting that I'm glad to hear this UPDATE from the Lard:

    From the Chancellor of the Diocese of Madison:

    With this email I convey the dispensation of the Most Rev. Robert C. Morlino, Bishop of Madison, granted to any of those who assist piously in the Pontifical Mass for the Feast of the Precious Blood (this Friday) from their observance of Friday penances.

    Ars Amatoria Zuhlsdorki

    From a reader…
    QUAERITUR:

    Would the use of birth control to delay children for a time invalidate marriage? Likewise, would the intention to divorce IF the spouse committed adultery invalidate the marriage?

    "Two questions… I normally don’t take twofers [R. & R.?], but I’ll make an exception.
    Marriage is intended to be open to life. In the marriage rite one says to one’s partner (and to the whole Church), “I give you my whole self. I am open to give you not only my life, but my potential children as well.” To withhold part of one’s life is to make that profession of marriage consent a lie. [Anything like HOLY ORDERS?]
    I caution couples [i.e. Here and now on my blog] to avoid the mistaken notion that, after getting married, they should wait a few years before having children so they can, “have some time to just get to know each other.” That can easily play in to selfishness.
    Think about it. Here are a couple scenarios.

    Fellas, you're gonna get tired of the Vagina People.

    Within the first few years of marriage even the most “in love” couples will have moments where they don’t particularly care for each other... The husband, at work, dreads going home to face his wife and to merely dive back into [an] argument. He can hardly stand to look at her. So, he goes out for a beer with his work colleagues. [BOTTOMS UP!]

    A second scenario. The husband is at work and dreads going home to face his wife, [Why?] but he knows that she is home with his infant son. He may not want to see his wife, [Ok, we get it.] but he is still in love with, and fascinated by his baby boy. So he goes home, perhaps grudgingly, but he goes home. He avoids his wife, [i.e. Zildo's 'FFLF: Female Fun Limitation Factor'? (is that a small penis?)] but goes into the room where his baby is sleeping. He picks up this child and the emotional and psychological feelings of love – the ineffable parental bond – fill his heart.

    As to the second part of the question, for Latin Church Catholics marriage is invalid if one or both spouses enter into marriage while placing a condition concerning the future (“I marry you as long as you remain faithful to me.”) One should certainly expect certain things of one’s spouse, and one of those things has to be fidelity, right? But there is a categorical difference between conditional consent (“If you cheat on me, that makes our marriage invalid and I’m therefore free to marry another.”) and legitimate expectations (“If you ever cheat on me, I’m moving out and might even consider divorce.”) [An unconvincing move to hide clerical power with guilt-tripping the laity]

    Armchair diagnoses of specific marriages – especially by the untrained layman [UNTRAINED LAY-MAN?] – without having all the facts and testimony at hand is generally unhelpful."

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Those scenarios are bizarre. Z really hates women, and he doesn't do a good job of hiding it. Some men really love their wives and want to spend time with them. I know couples who have no children for whatever reason, and the men spend a lot of time with their wives.

      Delete
    2. For Z the man hates his wife (cannot stand to see her face) and only stays with her because he has a young son at home. And the one comment says Z has hit another home run. These people are scary.

      "I caution couples to avoid the mistaken notion that, after getting married, they should wait a few years before having children so they can, “have some time to just get to know each other.” That can easily play in to selfishness."

      Zuhlsdorf is polishing his own turds here. He's a sine-cure and always has been and so, thank God, he has been kept away from regular Catholics and parish life. He doesn't simply hate women, he despises everyone in almost equal measure all the while broadcasting his cloyingly unctuous message that he loves everyone.

      Delete
    4. A few more comments are up, one about NFP and how great it is. The couple who did the NFP presentation at the marriage prep my husband and I attended was hysterical. The couple had a script that they took turns reading. They had previously used birth control but had decided at some point to use NFP. They had two kids very close in age, both conceived during the birth control years (kids were about 6 - 8). They had no children during the time they had been using NFP, which just shows what was going on in that marriage. Hormonal birth control can fail if a day or two goes by without taking a pill, but there will be no pregnancy at all if there isn't any sex at least typically.

      Delete
    5. Yes. NFP only for us. Thankfully we both enjoy giving and receiving oral and my wife really enjoys taking it up the butt.

  24. Yes, Fr. Z is annoying but at least he's an RC. What annoys me are those konvertsy from The Catholic to the Orthodox church who constantly look back and critique their former confession ad orientem, nay, I mean, ad infinitum.

    1. As an experiment, I asked a group of Orthodox clergy about our former co-religionist Mr. Dreher and his influence on their religious body. Boy did they have a lot to say! Turns out, Dreher is an impossible parishioner because he knows more than any of the priests and is not afraid to say so, publicly. All of them wanted to know if there was some procedure by which they could give him back, like some sort of exchange of spies during the Cold War. Sadly, i had to inform them that there was no provision for this in Canon Law, and that they took him on an "as is" basis.

      Pray for softening of hearts."

      The Lacy Boy has not twigged as yet that most of those who are putting obstacles in the way of reconciliation are the Three SSPX Episcopal Amigos and the majority of their anal retentive clergy, to say nothing of Z himself who makes more money out of conflict than out of calm.

    With the last article I read, I’m fairly certain it’s gone. The article explained how 75% plus of today’s parishioners are okay with and even welcoming the LGBT and Q community into the church and a mere 25% of “older” parishioners have a problem with it.
    [Clearly, the yardstick and ultimate measure of whether the Church exists or not.] Fr., my catholic faith means everything to me but this has become extraordinarily upsetting and disruptive. I will do anything to keep from losing the church all together. Have you any advise for those of us in the 25% bracket?

    "Be saintly. Fast, pray, study, then pray and fast some more. [Fast?! Study?!] Perform corporal and spiritual works of mercy. [Start with buying your priest-blogger a night vision scope from Amazon for his assault rifle] Storm heaven with prayers. Pray for each other, especially those on the front lines, our good priests and bishops (yes, there are many). Pray for the weak and the errant ones, too, for the love of God. They are on the road to Hell." [WOW! Z's fellow priests and some RC bishops are going to Hell?!]

    Father D, are you one of the priests Zildo mentions who are going to Hell? If so, GO TO CONFESSION and then for crying out loud stop with the clown masses and All-Are-Welcome signs!
    What about the Extraordinary Ordinary, Morlino? Is he hellbound? If so, quick everyone: fast for Morlino! Fast, fast some more, and then fast again!

  39. Can someone explain this loud ad orientem 'movement' (i.e the usual internet brigade). They claim that it takes the focus off the priest but isn't the opposite argument valid? I feel like this ad orientem push (by one cardinal) is an attempt to aggrandize the priest and emphasize his special status and his absolute necessity to the very definition of Christianity. It's just wildly tasteless and stupid.

    Advice to new priests in first assignments who suffer under liberal pastors. Wherein Fr. Z rants.
    Posted on 20 July 2016 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

    "In June and into July, many newly ordained priests have reported to their first assignment as associate or assistant (as my old pastor used to say, “The first three letters are the same”). These days we hear often the fancy term “parochial vicar”.
    After the excitement of ordination, the grace-filled bliss of Masses of Thanksgiving, hearing confessions for the first time, visiting classmates for their ordinations, things settle down to the quotidian life of being a priest.
    For some the transition is easy. For many there are difficulties.
    I’ve been getting a number of emails and messages this week from men who were ordained this year, complaining, and/or asking questions about how to handle their pastor."

    My heart aches for all those who are suffering such horrid fates at the hands of terrorists. And yet, this past Sunday 7/24, with all that is happening in the world, the new rector at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago, appointed by Archbishop Cupich, has the congregation sit during the Gospel so he can deliver it in three segments. I call it “The Gospel – Interrupted” After a short while it became apparent that Father was basically upstaging the Gospel by using the majority of his “homily” to tell jokes. Of course, the crowd loved it as the cathedral burst into laughter. Not one word of compassion or comfort or even awareness of the times, and certainly no attempt to show reverence towards God’s Word. It was a sad display. I am sure most left Mass (sizable group is always from out of town or out of state) talking about the “funny priest” and repeating and repeating his jokes, with no inkling or care about any of it having anything to do with God. This priest describes himself as a “Vatican II priest”. Seems so, unfortunately.

    As it stands, France has but one hope, and it resides in the monasteries and abbeys.
    When the need arises. It has an almost Arthurian quality to it — as though, when civilization is in its darkest hour the gates of monasteries and abbeys, priories and convents will open and bring forth the once and future Gospel [confusing Arthurian legend with the Gospel] — whole and unblemished — to vanquish the darkness by the light of truth, the Light of Christ.

    1. Meanwhile, Father Oliver Coss at All Saints Church in Birmingham, England wrote this:

      All Saints' Church, Small Heath, Birmingham
      A few years ago there was an attack on our church doors. In the context of today's events in France, or the persecution of Christians in other countries, it wasn't much, but we resisted the suggestion that we should beef up security, and decided to keep the doors of the church open during the day. It was a small, but significant, act of defiance in the face of violence.
      Today, Christians, who have reacted with horror and revulsion at the murder of Abbé Jacques Hamel, will need to work out how to respond. Many will be wanting to see reciprocal violence, but the Christian response should be very different. So let's ponder for a moment that Abbé Jacques, an 84 year-old priest, had his throat slit as he said mass, so offended were his attackers by the mystery he celebrated at Our Lord's command.
      So if you want to resist and make a stand against this act of sheer barbarism, then go to mass. Go confess, hear again from the scriptures, pray for the living and the dead, and share peace with God and each other at the altar of eucharistic sacrifice. And when the body of Christ is broken and given for you, know that you possess in your body peace which the world cannot begin to give. And you will be doing exactly what the hateful perpetrators of this dreadful crime dislike the most. As the archbishop of Rouen said today "The Catholic Church cannot take weapons other than those of prayer and brotherhood among men. I leave here hundreds of young people who are the future of humanity, the true ones. I ask them not to give in to the violence and become apostles of the civilisation of love."
      Please pray for the Roman Catholic church in France, in England, in throughout the world, and for her priests and people. Pray for the repose of the soul of Jacques Hamel, priest, who has gone to his reward this day, for the member of the congregation in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray who remains critically ill, and for Christians in that place who will be feeling very vulnerable today.

    A new priest opines on “Extraordinary Ministers” and people with only minor sins after several years.
    Posted on 31 July 2016 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

    From a priest, on two points:
    For our vigil Mass, we had our extraordinary ministers failed to show up. I also did not have a deacon. I preached about a 12 minute homily, used the Roman Canon, and distributed Holy Communion on my own to a congregation of about 200.

    It still took only about an hour. I don’t see how communion would be unduly delayed. Therefore, I see no need for extraordinary ministers.

    I’m still a new priest, but I really wonder about what they’ve been teaching the people here. If someone hasn’t been to confession in several years and their only sins are minor, either they’ve not examined their consciences or they don’t know how to examine their consciences. My bet is on the latter.

    “I really wonder about what they’ve been teaching the people here…”.

    You are not alone, Father.
    I’m glad you have your head screwed on in the right direction.
    Now, learn to say the Extraordinary Form. Also, get into that box and…
    HEAR SOME CONFESSIONS.


    I remember hearing Tom Doyle describe these new priests as "scary" and not because they're formidable, but because they're malformed, self-loathing, and actually disdainful of empathy.
    I remember reading the blog of a young priest who was serving in Rome and had to return to the US for treatment of some rare medical condition he acquired. I hope he is well; physical ills are some of the worst things in life. In regards to his spiritual life as published on his own blog, I found it to be a stretch. That is, a stretch of the imagination. He claimed to have 'fallen in love' with the Virgin Mary but clearly not in the sense of the 'communication of idioms'. It was not a comfortable item to read.
    It made me think that clericalism isn't just bad for the lay people. Essentially, it's a terrible misfortune for many clerics - the ones who take the whole Christianity thing seriously.

  47. You are not alone Father. I'm glad you have your head screwed on in the "right" direction. The fusion of the Logos (second order priest) and humanity (without the unwashed laity, less mom and dad and uncle frank) corresponds to the Hellenistic thought pattern also seen in Arianism. Now learn to say, 'Follow me or be lost.' Also, get into that box, for faculties or no, you are the boss, they love you they need you, because they don't have the clout to ask the bishop to hear their confession.
