The Tactical Weapon

So many times do people come into the Tavern and sound off about the decline of our society. And I speak, as they do, predominantly about our Anglophile civilisation. It is the current (or was) expression of centuries of slow and painful progress up the moral dimension, and argueably the best that humanity has managed to date.

It has brought Law, Institutions of fairness and reason, poverty-reduction on a vast scale, freedom of thought and an honouring of Human Beings. Humanity has all of this in the 'Western' civil world, born in Europe, spread by  - dare I say it - Englishness in all its varieties, and underpinned by Christianity.  

Christianity provided the Moral Core.

It gave us reason and science. It gave us a rationale for sacrifice and development. It made clear that we are a fallen people that has a chance of Redemption if only we work toward implementing the Will of God.  Man has plenty enough Freedom of growth within that Will. And we did grow.

That Christianity had a singular Catholic basis for 1500 years before it's message and guidance was diluted and challenged by first a few and then thousands of ego-driven sects of a vaguely Christian nature. Some 'churches' have been diluted to such an extent that they barely have a christian message at all.

The introduction of 'individual interpretation' - or rather interpretations of one man here and another there, foisted upon people with threats, was a tactical weapon to destroy Catholicism. Insidious, slow, debilitating, like a wasting illness.

Before even that assault The Catholic West had seen off the viciousness of a diabolical, militaristic Islam which left a wake of destruction and millions of dead in its path and from which it took 500 years to recover.  Islam was and is a major tactical weapon of Satan. 

But it is the civil philosophies of the 20C, more tactical weapons, with their totalitarian hatred of Christianity that has taken hold today.   Communism has filtered itself into our civil structures despite being 'politically' and militarily defeated in the main.

The drifting away of otherwise fine people into false churches has been going on apace for the past 400 years and has reached a ridiculous dilution level.  So diluted that Materialism has taken root like a weed, choking the plants, the flowers and the fruits in the garden. The materialism of communism (and indeed Nazism judging by the huge 'evangelical' church meetings with their light shows and rahrahs), has driven many 'christians' into the Abyss of greed and envy and personal aggrandizment.

It has rendered us weak. Islam is resurging and taking our eye off the main ball. While a vicious assault again is coming from Islam we have a white-ant effort happening within the walls of Christendom and threatening the Gates.

Hell has gates too and they are open. 

All the set backs and challenges our western civilisation has faced have been directed specifically against the Souls of men. The hatred of Christianity begs the question.

We 'civilised' people are quickly abandoning that moral basis today. We are letting the demonic in.

The latest failure to defend Morality just in the past weeks has been the abandonment of Marriage as a Sacremental Union of a Man and a Woman in the USA. Marriage in america has become not just a Farce but a destroyer of the Constitution. 

A Match has been put to the parchment. That 'One Nation under God' gave up a major battle on Abortion a long time ago in the '70's which has seen nearly 60 Million souls killed in the womb. It destroys life on an Industrial scale, pretending it is about 'choice', and now destroys Marital Union - by pretending to extend it to same-sex, un-natural couplings.

Only the Catholics retain the Sacremental.
Catholics MUST NOT let it go.

The re-definition of 'Marriage' to include state-sactioned buggery has to be fought. Let them keep it while Catholics revert to 'proper' Marriage...

Man, Woman & God.

But can the moral decline really cause damage to the rest of society as some claim?  Is it about extending 'rights' to marry? 

And what Tactical weapon can we bring to bear to fight with?

Lea Singh was in the Canadian Bar to answer the first two questions and Michael Voris the second in the US Room. 

So, is it really about Christianity, or is it about 'freedom', tolerance' and 'inclusiveness'? Can a strong, civilised nation deteriorate quickly, like falling off a cliff, rather than sliding down a slippery slope - which is an analogy oft heard in the Tavern? 
Same-sex “Marriage” and the Persecution of Christians in Canada

Canada legalized same-sex “marriage” in 2005, the fourth country in the world to do so. During the rushed public debate that preceded legalization, the Christian and traditional understanding of marriage as the union of a man and a woman had strong support. Polls showed a deep split among Canadians, and the majority (52 percent) were actually against legalization at the time that it occurred.
Opponents of same-sex “marriage” were given all kinds of assurances. The preamble to the Civil Marriage Act states that “everyone has the freedom of conscience and religion,” “nothing in this Act affects the guarantee of freedom of conscience and religion and, in particular, the freedom of members of religious groups to hold and declare their religious beliefs,” and “it is not against the public interest to hold and publicly express diverse views on marriage.”
But how quickly things change. Since the watershed moment of legalization, Canadian social norms have shifted rapidly, and what was once considered fringe or debateable has become the new normal.

Today, different opinions on “gender identity” and same-sex “marriage” are no longer tolerated. Our society is sweeping away respect for religious faiths that do not accept and celebrate same-sex “marriage,” and the Civil Marriage Act’s assurances seem merely farcical. 
It is not premature to speak of open discrimination against Christians in Canada.

Christian Lawyers Need Not Apply

The Canadian Charter of Right and Freedoms declares that Canadians have a fundamental “freedom of conscience and religion” and “freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression.” But constitutional guarantees are at the mercy of lawyers, and Canadian lawyers have emerged as among the most fiercely intolerant of anyone, including their own colleagues, who fails to support same-sex “marriage.”

This extreme intolerance became evident last year when Trinity Western University, the largest privately-funded Evangelical Christian university in Canada, set out to establish a law school. TWU’s plans were approved by British Columbia’s Ministry of Education, which seemed like the final green light. But in a truly unprecedented move, the law societies of three provinces, including Ontario, voted to deny accreditation to the law school.
The law societies gave only one reason, and it had nothing to do with sufficiency of the legal training of TWU graduates.  
The sole sticking point was the fact that TWU has a campus covenant which, among other things, asks students to abstain from same-sex (and heterosexual) sexual relationships outside of marriage, and states that marriage is reserved for man and woman.

The benchers who sit on provincial law societies are some of the most powerful lawyers in the country. In debating the TWU covenant, many of these elite lawyers made comparisons between the opposition to same-sex “marriage” and racism. 
For instance, one Ontario bencher said: “we can draw a useful analogy between public attitudes towards interracial dating and interracial marriage in 1985 and discrimination based on sexual orientation in 2014.” In British Columbia, one bencher put it this way: “there is no way to avoid asking … what this Law Society would do if the community covenant related to interracial marriage, even if that precept was based on religion as it was in the case of the Bob Jones University.“

The implication could not be more clear: Christians who believe in traditional marriage are the modern-day equivalent of racists, and warrant identical exclusion. Christian lawyers across Canada are now repeating the words of prominent Ontario lawyer Albertos Polizogopoulos: “I did not attend TWU, but I share its biblical view of marriage…. Do my religious beliefs, particularly about marriage, somehow disqualify me from ably practicing law? That is the inevitable conclusion and consequence if we endorse barring TWU law graduates from practicing law.”

Not only are Christian lawyers being pushed out by their colleagues, but they are also experiencing ostracism from their clients. As the debate over TWU heated in the media, some of Canada’s most powerful corporations created Legal Leaders for Diversity (LLD), a group that now includes over 70 of Canada’s largest corporations. Through LLD, these companies aim to alter the legal landscape by choosing to do business only with pro-gay law firms. 
Never before has there been a concerted effort to essentially starve Christian law firms out of business.

Catholics Seen as Opposed to Human Rights

The view that Christians are no longer fit for certain jobs is spreading out beyond the legal profession. In March, Toronto’s city council voted to remove the nomination of a Catholic school trustee to the city’s Board of Health. The trustee had not shown any wrongdoing or incompetence, and city councillors didn’t even try to argue this. 
Their stated concern was that the trustee had a history of voting in line with Catholic teaching.

In particular, some councillors were concerned that the trustee had consistently opposed gay-straight alliances in schools (a 2012 Ontario law states that these activist gay groups must be permitted inside all publicly-funded schools, including Catholic ones).
As in the case of TWU, councillors used an analogy to racism. The chair of the Board of Health asked: “Would we allow that as a society if it was black-white alliances? That’s what human rights are about….” Another councillor said: “These are actually human rights issues, the right for gays and lesbians to lead an equal life in the city of Toronto.”

The writing is on the wall. 
A mere decade after same-sex “marriage” was legalized in Canada, citizens who do not support same-sex “marriage” are outside the bounds of social acceptability. It is now considered in the public interest to deny them career opportunities and advancement.

Children as the Next Frontier of Gender Diversity

This coming September, all publicly funded schools in the province of Ontario, whether Catholic or secular, must begin to teach an aggressive new sexual education curriculum which is categorically opposed to Catholic teaching on sexuality and the human person.

Starting in grade three, the curriculum introduces children to the idea that gender is fluid, and that little boys can decide to be girls, or vice versa. The message is that transgender desires are just as perfectly normal as homosexual leanings.
This message is already being propagated by our media. For instance, Canadian public radio recently covered the case of a 12-year-old boy who chose to “come out” as a girl one year earlier. This “heartwarming” story includes details such as the fact that the boy’s puberty has now been chemically stopped, and he may be put through female puberty instead.

Young Canadian children have been “coming out” as transgender, and are being encouraged by officials in schools and government, and by the media. Currently, a Catholic school in Alberta is being pressured to allow a 7-year-old transgender “girl” to use the girls’ bathroom. Last year, the province of Alberta issued a new birth certificate to a 12-year-old “boy” who was born a girl.

Campaign Life Coalition, Canada’s largest pro-life organization, accurately expresses the dilemma that Ontario’s Catholic schools are facing:

"It is unclear how Catholic schools can implement teaching on birth control, abortion, the idea that being male or female is a social construct, gender expression, and the 6-gender theory, even if retrofitted with a “Catholic lens.” Catholic moral teaching forbids abortion and the use of artificial contraception as grave evils. The theory of gender identity, gender expression and the idea that there are more genders than just male and female directly contradict Christian anthropology of the human person".

The Dawn of a New Dictatorship?
Canada continues to pioneer through a vast social experiment. The legalization of same-sex “marriage” represented the victory in our laws and public morals of a view of the human person and human sexuality that is seriously incompatible with the Gospel. This is turning out to be a zero-sum situation, and Christians are starting to be seen as public enemies.
Last May at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., Princeton professor Robert George spoke precisely of these changes in our Western culture, and of the coming persecution of Catholics and other like-minded Christians. Here in Canada, his predictions are already coming to pass:
"The days of socially acceptable Christianity are over. The days of comfortable Catholicism are past…. Powerful forces and currents in our society press us to be ashamed of the Gospel … ashamed of our faith’s teachings on marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife. These forces insist that the Church’s teachings are out of date, retrograde, insensitive, uncompassionate, illiberal, bigoted, even hateful … these same forces say you are a homophobe, a bigot, someone who doesn’t believe in equality. You even represent a threat to people’s safety. You ought to be ashamed!"
"…One may in consequence of one’s public witness be discriminated against and denied educational opportunities and the prestigious credentials they may offer; one may lose valuable opportunities for employment and professional advancement; one may be excluded from worldly recognition and honors of various sorts; one’s witness may even cost one treasured friendships…. Yes, there are costs of discipleship—heavy costs."
Trinity Western University is now fighting expensive court battles in three provinces, and will likely wind up at the Supreme Court. The Toronto Catholic school trustee is considering an appeal to a human rights tribunal. Thousands of parents have protested against the new sexual education curriculum in Ontario, pulling 15,000 kids out of school to demonstrate their outrage.
But Ontario’s premier, who is herself a lesbian in a same-sex “marriage,” has announced her resolve to introduce the curriculum despite the protests. 
The tsunami of gender identity politics is only gathering speed, bringing ever more pressure upon those who dare stand in its way.

Lea Z. Singh is a lawyer, writer and a stay-at-home mom to three young children. She writes from Ottawa, Canada and blogs at Culture Witness.
So, Canada, that Nation of once-pleasant people is decending rapidly, ostracising Catholics in particular and Christians in general, ruining their careers and declaring them, 'enemies'.

Now just what sort of philosophy would do that ? It is not 'anti-religious' It has not suggested that Islamists who demand conversion or beheading be so ostracised. It is Anti-Catholic. Anti-Christian, who are seen by the diabolical still as 'catholic by association' with Christ.

This is not simply 'social.

So if it is a matter of 'Soul', of Humankind's Spirit, about the Will of God as opposed to the will of men (and women of course), what is the main target, Catholics, doing about it?

As it has been made clear many times in this Tavern on the road, the Catholic Church is sadly failing to fight. 

Indeed, many of its leaders have ran away from the fight and collaborated with the satanic enemy. We have largely given up on expecting the other 'christian' churches to rejoin. Some have some very sound people but many have not. 

Many Catholics are glorified-unto-themselves 'zozcial juztitz warriors' in the Church of Nice. Many Bishops and Archbishops and even Cardinals are not simply 'suspect' but clearly on the wrong side. 

But those who remain Faithful.... 
what can they do?

Well, for a start they can speak out instead of hiding in their Cathedrals and pretending to be heads of department of an NGO.

And they have a Tactical Weapon. A Big one.


There has been talk here before some time ago when I 'suggested' that Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden should be condemned to Hell. 

For that is what Excommunication is.
GO TO HELL. Begone.

And that is the message Michael Voris brings. 

We must reverse the 'mantra' that the 'personal is the political', and make the political, personal. For it is men and women, Political men and women we have to take on, just as a soldier in the field is not there to fight an ideology but to kill the enemy infront of him.

Identify the enemy with the weapon pointed at you, and take him out.

We are at War and the enemy is inside the gates. We MUST not abandon the gates. They must prevail. They WILL prevail and we must ensure it. The enemy must be rooted out. They must be cast out and the gates closed against them. Let God excercise His mercy as His Will be done. We have our orders and our 'sound' Faithful Churchmen have their Excommunication weapon and their Duty.

Think about that.


Peace has to be fought for. 


  1. While assuredly those who control the publicly funded schools in the province of Ontario will eventually burn in hell, meanwhile they will have done such damage to human beings, irreversible damage.

    1. Indeed. There is a concerted attack on our western, 'moral' - albeit a struggled up and hard-won one - civilisation and a host of apparatchiks quite willing to take the money to ruin the lives of others. They will find every excuse for themselves as their lives come to their ends. They have convinced themselves now and will justify themselves until the end.

      Meanwhile we have to fight them, and those with moral 'power' and 'authority are dragging their feet around desks instead of wielding swords on the battlefield. They will rot in Hell too if they do not get some backbone and do something far more militant than to date.

Our Bouncer is a gentleman of muscle and guile. His patience has limits. He will check you at the door.

The Tavern gets rowdy visitors from time to time. Some are brain dead and some soul dead. They attack customers and the bar staff and piss on the carpets. Those people will not be allowed in anymore. So... Be Nice..
