Only the new age secularists would have the audacity to spin a narrative proclaiming their inverted “virtue” is GOOD and the concept of self-denial is SINFUL. This is the work of fools who have allowed themselves to be dragged down into a world of hedonism. (They may want to look into the history of the collapse and Fall of the Roman Empire).

The United States of America is the only nation in history to have used the Judeo-Christian Principle as the lynchpin for the nation’s development and growth. So, what happened? How did this principle seemingly get tossed into the dumpster of the outdated and irrelevant? How did this principle of ethics and morality based on the Ten Commandments and the “Golden Rule” somehow become a pariah to so many? Why would anyone want to remove the words, “under God”, from the Pledge of Allegiance or the name of God from our coins or government buildings? What is going on? How did these principles ever become inverted?
It is, in my opinion, all biblical. And why not? We started out as a nation using the Bible as our cornerstone. Isn’t it fitting that those opposed to us would try to destroy that very stone? Of course it is. But there is one critical aspect that drives this onslaught and I think we do not pay close enough attention to it. Neither do the ones committing the onslaught. Those that are flailing away at our religious heritage and freedoms are not committing these attacks on their own. They have a brilliant, diabolical, hate-consumed leader inspiring them onward. Their leader’s name is Satan. And Satan’s biggest and most hated enemy is the church that Jesus Christ founded, the Catholic Church.
The Catholic Church was founded by Christ 2000 years ago. The Church is His “bride”. We are all part of the Catholic family. (The word Catholic means ‘universal’ so it is for everyone–if they so choose). And the reason Satan hates Christ’s church so much is because it still spits in his evil eye and says NO! It still has rules. It has standards that have been in place for two thousand years. It still has the “nerve and audacity” to use the words, SIN and MORALITY. In today’s self-indulged secular world anything or anyone that might suggest that a particular behavior is “immoral” or “sinful” is branded and vilified as intolerant and uncaring. How pompous and pride filled this is. Only the new age secularists would have the audacity to suggest that their inverted “virtue” is GOOD and the concept of self-denial is SINFUL.
Our old comic book friend, Superman, on occasion used to get stuck in “Bizarro World”, a place where everything was backwards. Up was down and hello meant good-bye. Even the planet, Htrae, (Earth backwards), was shaped like a cube. The world was inverted. It is the same with the insanity of inverted secular virtue. I call this world “Secularro”.
On Secularro killing is “Good” and if you stand against it you are bad. For instance, take abortion, infanticide, euthanasia and partial-birth abortion. The church says NO! On Secularro the Church is now bad. Fornication and people “hooking up” for one-night stands is heralded as “Good”. The church says NO! On Secularro the church is told to mind its own business. Divorced and remarried Catholics want to receive the Holy Eucharist. The church says NO! (This is nothing new) . On Secularro the church is intolerant and insensitive and is out of touch with the modern world and needs to get into the 21st century. Homosexuals demand to be married in the Church. The Church says NO! Marriage is between a man and a woman ONLY. Satan screams from his evil world to his followers,’Say YES! YES! YES!”
On Secularro the inverted unwittingly listen to him and pound on the dogmatic doors of the Catholic Church demanding that they be opened to personal wants and desires. Unlike Bizarro World where things are just ‘crazy’ on Secularro World things are mean and vindictive. Secularro World is ruled by hate. Satan is Hate.
There are other Christian denominations that have succumbed to outside pressures and reworked their “teachings” to accommodate the demands from Secularro. They have been praised as “progressive” and “in touch” with the needs of the citizens of Secularro. Their mission is to save souls for Christ and guide these souls to their Eternal Reward in heaven. They have failed in this mission. But the Catholic Church has not caved into the demands and pressures of Secularro World. Satan HATES this more than any of us can imagine. That is why the Catholic Church is Satan’s (im)mortal enemy.
The Catholic Church still teaches that there are Seven Deadly Sins. They are pride, greed, lust, anger, gluttony, envy and sloth aka laziness. Note the key word in describing these sins is the word “deadly”. The Church teaches that these sins can destroy the soul of anyone who might indulge these human appetites. The church also offers forgiveness for falling prey to these sins. On Secularro the church is mocked and laughed at for suggesting these actions offend God. These acts are acceptable because the individual committing one of these sins is just being human and God made us that way and wants us to be “happy”. So–sin away. How inverted can one get. If you subscribe to that concept SATAN wins.

Praise the Lord (TRULY). The ‘black mass’ abomination in Oklahoma City (with its huge congregation of 42 people) is finally over. The Satanic lovers of the “darkness” have had their day. I hope they are fulfilled with whatever redeeming spiritual blackness their boss can deliver into their misguided, hate filled, anti-God hearts.
I wrote about this shameful event back on August 8. The mock “mass” that these Satan lovers were going to enact was reprehensible enough. But what nagged at me like an unscratchable itch was the fact that these Catholic haters seemed to understand the Holy Eucharist and what it actually was better than many “cafeteria” Catholics (those who pick & choose doctrine they accept). Statistics say that 48% of “Catholics” do not accept the Real Presence ( a blog for another day). Yet here are Satanists obviously accepting this profound Dogma of Catholicism. They must realize the truth of this Dogma or why would they revel in hating and defiling it? There would be no point.
So, why do Satanists want to desecrate a host consecrated at a Catholic Mass? They are definitely not interested in a host from another Christian service. Is their callous faithlessness filled with an abiding TRUTH that they cannot stand because of their pride and ego? Is the magnificent reality of the Eucharistic Sacrifice offered at the Mass what drives them to gather together to defile, mock and denigrate this mystery? Is this why Adam Daniels, the Satanist in charge of this debasement, tells us they will denounce Jesus Christ, stomp and spit on the host they are using and even urinate on it. How can they hate something so much? I think I know why.
I have come to the realization that they have the truth in their hearts and down deep inside they know what that truth is. Unfortunately for them, the greatest of the Seven Deadly Sins, PRIDE, has embraced them all in a bear-hug of self-centeredness, a hold that they choose not to break free from. Therefore, it follows, down deep inside they also hate themselves. This is very sad.
They hate so much because Satan himself is hate and they are filled with his venom. They do not understand that Satan hates them too. He hates them because they can still obtain redemption. God is love and that love is pure Goodness. Any of these human followers of Satan still have an opportunity to ask God for His forgiveness. If they do, God will embrace them and welcome them home. They can perform these heinous acts against Christ and still have a chance for redemption. They can change their minds and have this opportunity up until death takes them.
Satan, as the greatest of all angels, had his chance and blew it. He turned against God and was cast from heaven with his pride-filled followers. His Pride cost him to lose total Hope. Filled with hate he and those that followed him prowl around the world seeking the ruin of souls, a task at which they have been extremely successful. Ironically, Satan hates his human followers more than they can imagine. That is because he has no fear or respect for any of them. More than anything, he knows they can still find redemption if they so decide. That drives him crazy because a) he knows he is so much better than them; and b) redemption can NEVER be his. Bring on the eternal envy.
Each and every one of us has a life long, personal war we must wage within ourselves. That war’s two main enemies are Pride and HUMILITY. These two entities are part of us and they pit us against ourselves throughout our entire lives. Pride has torn apart families, destroyed friendships, fomented resentment and bitterness, incited fury and outrage, and even led to war and murder and something called a ‘black mass’.
The antidote to Pride is Humility. For many that is too hard a pill to swallow. How many of us have heard words or even used words like:
“I’m NOT apologizing to him.” or
“She was RUDE to me. I’m never talking to her again.” or
“I’m not going to confession and telling my sins to another person.” or
“She’s SO stuck up. I can’t stand her.”
Death, destruction, and mayhem are the result of pride. It certainly can be a terrible thing. Jesus, dying on the cross, forgave His executioners and all of us too. Therein is the greatest lesson in Humility ever given.
The war within each of us will continue until our deaths. Many times it is a hard fought struggle but many of us win these ongoing battles. Having the Love of God in your life combined with prayer are the greatest weapons against this deadly sin of pride. Sadly, many surrender to the Great Impostor, Satan, and his lies and false promises of worldly pleasure. For all of those folks let the rest of us keep praying for them. And that includes the Oklahoma City Satanists.
A Man Born Again—-
A Novel Based on the Life of St. Thomas More
by John E. Beahn
Originally published in 1954 by Bruce Publishing Co.
Re-published in 2013 by TAN Books for the TAN Legends Series
Charlotte, North Carolina
This book is absolutely mesmerizing. Author, John E. Beahn (1910-1990), has managed to somehow crawl into the mind of the great Lord Chancellor of England and, writing in the first person, chaperons him right into your presence. You meet Sir Thomas in the Tower of London where the author of “Utopia” awaits an unannounced yet obvious fate at the hands of his King, Henry VIII. Thomas, looking down from behind his prison window, has you look with him and survey the city of London below.
Just like that you are walking with Sir Thomas down Milk Street and he shows you where he was born. You pass by St. Anthony’s on Threadneedle St. and he shows you where he first went to school. Suddenly you are walking across a bridge and John More, Sir Thomas’ father, is walking with you. Thomas explains that he is being taken by his dad to Lambert Place to meet the Lord Chancellor of England, Archbishop Morton. You watch as the Archbishop accepts 12-year old Thomas as a page. Why not? Thomas is already versed in Latin and English and rhetoric and mathematics. You do notice though, that the young Thomas More is quite taken with the things of the world more so than those esteemed by God.
Filled with a false pride at his superb intelligence and against his father’s wishes, Thomas agrees with Archbishop Morton that he should go to Oxford. His father objects and wants him to study law at New Inn. The Lord Chancellor has his way and Thomas begins preparations to leave for Oxford. His father becomes distanced from him but Thomas does not seem to care. He is being treated as a young man of “importance” by his acquaintances and other students and even people in the street. He relishes the popularity. His climb up the ladder of success has begun and it is moving quickly. He tells you at Charterhouse that he is “determined to be a saint just like all the Carthusians.” You, as the reader, already know better but are anxious to see how his sudden “call to sanctity” develops.
You now follow along with Sir Thomas and observe as he becomes a fine lawyer and a sought after lecturer. He rejects the idea of the priesthood and marries Jane Colt, has four children, becomes widowed when Jane dies from illness, marries Alice Middleton and pursues his dream of being a writer. He does gain notoriety with his book, Utopia, and is suddenly under the watchful eye of Cardinal Wolsey and King Henry VIII.
Suffice it to say that once again the primary of the seven deadly sins, Pride, reared its ugly head and consumed the King of England. Infatuated with Anne Boleyn he wanted to divorce Catherine and marry Anne. He also wanted Pope Leo to annul his marriage to Catherine. This the Pope refused to do. Known as King Henry’s “Great Matter”, the King was not about to defer to the Pope. He took over the church in England and demanded oaths of fidelity to the realm. You now travel with a humble Thomas More who confides in you that “God permitted me to sink into that blackness of spirit and to the darkness about myself. And when I could endure no more, He returned to me.” Thomas More refused to reject his faith and his church and his God. He was canonized a martyred saint on May 19, 1935 by Pope Pius XI.
One final thing, treat yourself and read this book. You might find a new friend albeit someone a bit older than you. His name is Saint Thomas More.
