Biden – Ignorance will get you to Hell, or at least Purgatory.

Hosea 4:6, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being My priest.
Since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.

We must all understand that we all will be held accountable…….

Biden as an “Authoritative Type”

Hadley Arkes Tuesday, January 26, 2021

Aristotle recognized that the political man, raised to high office, becomes an “authoritative type.”  His attributes, his manner, draw a closer attention, for, after all, his elevation carries this sense of things:  that these are the features of a man so admirable that we have lifted him to high authority over us;  his style and character are so commendable that he offers us a model to be emulated.   President Kennedy favored a rocking chair for his back and went to concerts of Haydn, and suddenly more people were buying rocking chairs and seeking out the music of Haydn.

I offer all of this as a note of sobering warning to some of our friends who have been altogether too beamish in hoping for the true Catholic to come flowering in Joe Biden now that he may have less reason to conceal it. Biden has offered over the years the visible public example of a man in high office who can regard himself as serious Catholic and yet support, as a good thing, a right to kill 860,000 to a million innocent human lives each year in abortions.

Biden has been nothing if not a weathervane for winds blowing in his party, and that party has become ever more aggressive on the matter of abortion, brooking virtually no limits on that killing, even at the point of birth for babies who survive the abortions. And yet, nothing could be more central in the moral teaching of the Church – no, not climate change or the ravages of air-conditioning – than the concern for the meaning of the “human person,” that being who is both the subject of the law and the prime object of its protection.

What Biden’s example offers day in and day out – that is, in a way that cannot be missed – is that one can be a good Catholic and yet, in the most insouciant manner, just wave Catholic teaching aside as a matter not to be taken seriously.

One would have to be blind to the ways of the world to believe that this kind of a lesson, taught by the most visible public figure in the land, will not have the most profound, corrosive effect.

Robert Royal got it so right last week when he anticipated that Biden’s ascension was more likely to be destructive for Catholic institutions, and more surely teach a disrespect for Catholic teaching.  How long until a gesture of disrespect, widely absorbed, will give way to contempt?

What I’ve wished for years for the bishops to say to the Bidens and Cuomos is something in this vein:  “We cannot presume to instruct you on your job, but the problem now is that you are creating ‘scandal.’  You are seriously mis-instructing many Catholics on the teaching of their own Church, and in that way sapping the convictions that sustain that teaching. We would not make heavy demands on you, but we would plead simply that you ‘do no harm.’”

Just when I thought that there was nothing more to learn about Joe Biden, Fr. Donovan appeared on the stage. Fr  Leo Donovan, SJ, former president of Georgetown University, doing the Invocation at the Inauguration.

We were told now that Donovan had been a close friend and counselor of Biden for many years.   And yet had it never been possible for him to plead to Biden that he was giving a false account of the reasoning of his Church on abortion – and what was so unreasoned then in his own position?

Pro Life Mass Disrupted by Pro-Abortion Protestors – Columbus, OH

George Dunlap, January 23, 2021. Looks like they, the pro-choice crowd, are testing the waters, by their bold invasion, in our Catholic Mass, St. Joseph Cathedral, yesterday in Columbus, Oh, as Mass for Pro-Life was in faithful prayer to God.

Pro-abortion protestors disrupt pro-life Mass at Ohio cathedral

By Kevin Jones Catholic News

Denver Newsroom, Jan 22, 2021 / 05:06 pm MT (CNA).- About eight pro-abortion protesters disrupted the Respect Life Mass at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in downtown Columbus Friday, where Bishop Robert Brennan was presiding at an event marking the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

“Two, four, six, eight, this church teaches hate,” the protesters shouted, saying that abortion rights were under attack.

“Fund abortion, not cops,” said one of their signs. “Abortion on Demand. End Hyde Now,” said another, apparently referring to the Hyde Amendment, which bans most federal funding for abortion. At least two protesters wore vests that read “clinic escort” on the back.

Our First Anti-Catholic “Catholic” President, and yet 49% of Catholics Voted for this Anti-Catholic…. President.

A vote for Joe Biden…supports Abortion, the killing of the UN-Born Child.

“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14

George Dunlap, January 22, 2021. Can you imagine trying to explain to God, why you refused to stop the savage killing of millions of un-born children?

By Robert Royal, Frinday, January 22, 2021

In recent days, Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago has described the pre-inauguration statement issued by USCCB President and Archbishop of Los Angeles José Gómez as “unprecedented” for what – in any non-partisan perspective – were actually quite temperate warnings to President Biden that the Church will not ignore his departures from clear Catholic teachings. In fact, the Chicago Cardinal has become rather obsessive, tweeting out what some have called a Twitter “storm” about the whole affair.

Cupich’s criticisms of his fellow bishops are themselves also quite unprecedented. Then again, the thing that’s most “unprecedented” – that’s given rise to these recent in-house Catholic squabbles – is the election of a self-described “Catholic” president, who not only believes personally that abortion, gay “marriage” (he performed one as vice-president), transgenderism (“the civil rights issue of our time”), and much more are matters of overriding political urgency, despite the long teachings of the Church and American history. He’s determined – actually seems to be going out of his way – to impose those views. On all of us.

VACCINES, A MORAL ISSUE REGARDING ABORTED BABY TISSUE

GEORGE DUNLAP, JANUARY 31, 2020. My last post of the year, and my challenge is do I finish the year with a “feel good” piece or …… I choose this topic since we find it difficult to discuss such morality, in our Catholic Churches today. Do we accept a good from a most serious evil? When can a Bad Thing be a Good? That is the case that we as Catholic’s must consider when we are not celebrating the New Year with Family and Friends. If we choose to sit on the side lines, we will be held to the same standards as those we blinding allow to continue in their abortion services…supported by Christians of all faiths. We as Catholics must be the standard bearer of the truth and always protect the unborn child. To Vaccinate or not….. May God Bless you and your family. Don’t you think it is time we have an honest conversation….?

A PASTOR ON THE VACCINES

By Rev. Jerry J. Pokorsky Thursday, December 31, 2020

The Vatican and the U.S. bishops have affirmed the morality of several of the recent anti-COVID vaccines, some developed using testing that involved embryonic stem cells. They have evaluated the methods employed for each of the vaccines currently approved and encouraged the use of those least morally compromised. But where options are limited, they say, the faithful will not be sinning by being vaccinated. This teaching follows the orthodox moral analysis that has existed for decades, including the papacies of St. John Paul II and Benedict XVI. There remain, however, a few loose ends.

We sin when we choose an evil action. We know it is wrong, and we freely do it anyway. We cooperate with the sinful acts of others when we approve of or facilitate their sin. When we vote for a politician because of his pro-abortion positions, we formally cooperate in the evil he promotes. If we oppose his pro-abortion policies and vote for him anyway, we materially cooperate in the evil he supports. If the material cooperation is avoidable (it’s possible to vote for a candidate that has comparatively more morally upright policy positions), we are guilty of the sin.

A nurse who disapproves of abortion but assists an abortionist during the medical procedure also shares in the guilt with “proximate material cooperation.” Hospital maintenance personnel who mop the floors of an abortion facility may or may not be guilty of sin. The clean-up is “remote material cooperation,” but there is an obligation to seek employment elsewhere then, if possible.

These moral analyses are rational, but there are hard cases. In 1972, for example, an airplane crash stranded the Uruguayan rugby team in freezing weather. The survivors ate the bodies of their dead comrades to survive. As grotesque as the situation was, their moral status is certain. There was no formal cooperation in the death of the passengers. Their circumstances were desperate. Finally, there was little or no chance that the cannibalism would encourage murder. But one could hardly blame a person who chose to die rather than to dine on a teammate.

Among the notorious Nazi experiments on concentration camp prisoners (see here):

Doctors immersed prisoners into tanks of ice water for hours at a time, often dying of exposure, to discover how long German pilots downed by enemy fire could survive the frozen waters of the North Sea.

To develop a vaccination serum against tuberculosis, doctors injected live tubercle bacilli into the lungs of prisoners. They also removed lymph glands from the arms of twenty Jewish children.

Doctors amputated the shoulders and legs of inmates in futile attempts to transplant the limbs onto other victims.

Thousands of inmates had their genitals mutilated to discover cheap methods of mass sterilization.

Is it morally permissible for us today to use Nazi research to save lives? Doctor John Hayward, a Biology Professor at Victoria University, justified his use of the murderous Nazi hypothermia data with the same logic as the bishops and Holy See have applied to some COVID vaccines: “I don’t want to have to use the Nazi data, but there is no other and will be no other in an ethical world. . . .But not to use it would be equally bad. I’m trying to make something constructive out of it. I use it with my guard up, but it’s useful.”

Moral analyses using formal, proximate, and remote material cooperation apply to all of these examples. Yet, there remains an emotional factor. Could we blame family members of the victims for torching the research papers and rejecting those who blithely promote using the findings in the service of the common good?

Mr. Biden and the Matter of Scandal

GEORGE DUNLAP, 12/10/2020, This morning I read the, 12/4/2020, blog from, Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia – retired, as a Catholic in quest of the Truth I have followed the Archbishop’s writings, since he was Bishop of Denver. The Archbishop clarifies the FACT that President-elect Joe Biden should be banned from receiving communion due to his support for ABORTION RIGHTS. There is no compromise with ABORTION. On the 7th of this month a second article came out by Julia Terruso of the The Philadelphia Inquirer detailing the on going battle in our faith between Truth & Deceit. Please, if you are a seeker of the truth and pro-life Catholic invest a few minutes. Our eternal life; with or without God is in the balance.

Readers may recall that during the 2004 presidential campaign, Sen. John Kerry led the Democratic ticket. As a Catholic, Kerry held certain policy views that conflicted with the moral beliefs of his Church. This led to internal tensions among U.S. bishops about how to handle the matter of Holy Communion for Catholic public officials who publicly and persistently diverge from Catholic teaching on issues like abortion. At the time, Washington’s then-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, along with Pittsburgh’s Bishop Donald Wuerl, had very different views from my own regarding how to proceed.  

I believed then, and believe now, that publicly denying Communion to public officials is not always wise or the best pastoral course. Doing so in a loud and forceful manner may cause more harm than good by inviting the official to bask in the media glow of victimhood. What I opposed in 2004, however, was any seeming indifference to the issue, any hint in a national bishops’ statement or policy that would give bishops permission to turn their heads away from the gravity of a very serious issue. At the time, fortunately, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith resolved any confusion about correct practice in these matters with its July 2004 memorandum to then-Cardinal McCarrick, Worthiness to Receive Holy Communion: General Principles. It includes the following passage:

Philadelphia’s retired archbishop says Biden should be denied communion over his abortion stance

GEORGE DUNLAP, 12/7/2020. Do we as Pro-Life Catholics engage or sit on the side lines and allow evil to grow. Abortion is EVIL and if you and I do nothing, we too, we will be banished from the Kingdom of God. We must be part of the solution and no longer remain in the shadows. God forgive us all. The below article by Julia Terruso defines the mission of our faith.

Former Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput said late last week that President-elect Joe Biden should be banned from receiving communion due to his support for abortion rights, fueling an ongoing debate among Catholic leaders in the United States over how to relate to the nation’s second Catholic president.

Chaput, who led Philadelphia’s diocese from 2011 until this year, said Biden “is not in full Communion with the Catholic Church,” and criticized bishops who have spoken out in favor of letting Biden receive communion. He made the argument in a column titled, “Mr. Biden and the Matter of Scandal,” which published Friday in the Catholic magazine First Things. Related stories


Whether Biden, who supports same-sex marriage and abortion rights, should receive communion came up at a convening of the nation’s bishops last month. At that meeting, the head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Los Angeles Archbishop José Gomez, said he would form a working group to further discuss the “difficult and complex situation” of Biden’s presidency.

Can We Accept The Truth – Election 2019

Fr. Edward Meeks speaks the truth, but, will we hear, will we see, will we accept the TRUTH. I urge you and your family to spend 27 minutes and truly understand our journey with God on Earth. As men we have lost our way and with faith we can lead our families to the light. God Bless you and your family.

Abortions, 3000 per day and yet we do not shut-down our Churches, our Jobs, or our Lives. Fear is now in control, or some would say…Satan is in control. Easter is full of pain and offers us all salvation.

By George Dunlap, April 7, 2020. Waking up to a world of confusion and unknown, I am challenged to understand the math, to-date we (no death is to be minimized) have lost over 10,000 Americans to the Coronavirus and to-date 294,00, unborn Americans, are killed by the hands of fellow Americans. Fear is now in control of our lives; our feelings, and our faith. We have shut the doors to our Churches because of the FEAR of catching the Virus, but we turn our heads by the screams and crying of 3,000 babies being killed every day. I suggest we have lost our faith and hope. The only weapon is truth, payer, and accepting our sins. What do I suggest? First a return to our trust in God, return to Praying the Rosary daily, and a stronger faithful effort to being fully Catholic. We as Catholics must, be the example, not to be seen as a herd of Fear driven sheep.

Please pray for our souls for we have Lost our Way this Easter Season. The Cross is our path to salvation. It is full of pain and sorrow and it is the branding that transforms us to be with God.
