Holy fucking shit. I have to swear a little bit, and I apologize and reprent to my God Jesus, but HOLY SHIT, this video had me in tears:
At first I thought it must be a joke, from maybe some liberals or something, because I have never encountered such sincerity from Republican Tea Partiers. Ray Steven, you have outdone thyself. This video will move hearts. And minds. And souls, to the Jesus that I know.
I cannot say much as I am still absorbing all of the sand, cacti, blue screens, and trucker hats featured in your musical film. But I will reiterate!
GOD SAVE ARIZONE-A FROM OUR OWN FED’RAL GOVER’MENT!!!
3:41 — You shake your head at the sin of this liberal nation!
3:44 — You put your hands in your own middle-class pockets that that MUSLIN Obama President of ours is STEALING FROM.
You seriously could not be more accurate in the way you portray the oppression of the white, bearded man in this country!
So, lemme get this straight. Tomorrow is Friday which means Saturday is Saturday and that is the day I can and will go to confession to reprent to Jesus for the word “fucking” that I used in this post. But tough guys must use tough words to portray the obscenity of the brown men and womens that are entering this country to steal from us. I promise to have a little talk with Jesus about my language in confession on Saturday, as it was use only for his glory and for his honor and also that of the United States of America on this day in Glenn Beck’ honoor. Forgiveness is coming for me in sacrament.
I dare you to listen to this video and not be moved in the depths of your heart, soul, and nether-regions. Thank you, Ray. Ray, thanks.

Despite what you hear from the FEMINIST INFILTRATION in the Church, women do have a place in the Church. They have THEIR place in the Church. Likewise, although there are few regular women contributors here at THE CATHOLIC FASCIST, we do recognize the role women have in the Catholic Blogosphere and the contributions they might make there. So, progressives that we are, we would like to offer traditional, conservative, women Catholics (beyond our lone female regular contributor) the chance to say something here from time to time. We propose to begin a feature called “WOMEN’S CORNER” in which a woman or a group of women have the opportunity to share with us from their place, the “women’s place” in the Church. We are not sure what form this will take and how often it will occur, perhaps once a month or once every few years. Interested women should send an email to us at thecatholicfascist at gmail.com describing what they hope to contribute to the blog, why they like the blog, why they like the men who write for the blog, how they will promote the traditional Gospel to the men of the blogosphere and to the world, and a once sentence summary of how they understand their place in the Church.

Rosemary Radford Ruether — feminist “theologian” and hero of liberals everywhere — attempts to undermine the One True Church’s® traditional and proven teaching on apostolic succession in a recent article on women’s ordination at the National Catholic
Reporter Distorter. What is interesting is that she criticizes the Roman Catholic “Womenpriest” movement for their belief in apostolic succession! Ruether does not believe in the MALE-ONLY priesthood and she does not believe in something so basic as apostolic succession, saying that there is no historical evidence for it. She should just admit that she hates the Catholic Church. Kudos to the Roman Catholic “Womenpriest” movement for at least retaining some semblance of belief in the top-down, “mechanistic,” power-from-on-high concept of apostolic succession, priestly authority, and pyramidal hierarchy, unlike this washed up apostle to the apostles heretic to the heretics.

The National Catholic Distorter reports on a recent gathering of altar servers with Pope Benedict in Rome, pointing out — as only they can do — that the number of “altar girls” this year outnumbered the number of altar boys.
Of course, the NCRD trumpets this as a sign of the uncontrollable eruption of women in the Church, and makes much of the fact that the Holy Father seems to approve of “altar girls.” Of course, within the last few years Rome nearly listed “altar girls” on a list of liturgical abuses, so I doubt very much that Papa Benedict feels fine about this disturbing development.
I recall at my home parish the pastor introduced the liturgical “innovation” of “altar girls” back in the 1980s, well before John Paul II’s Holy See seemed to give the green light for this liturgical perversion. I promptly left that parish, seeing where all of this would lead. And today, Rome itself is giving an ambiguous message about “altar girls,” as Benedict seems to want it both ways: citing the practice as liturgical abuse but giving the impression that he is fine with it all the same.
And be not deceived. Serving at the Lord’s altar is not simply a ministry in and of itself. It is part of the hierarchical ordering of the Holy Orders of the Church. Altar boys are of course encouraged to discern the Roman Catholic Priesthood, the center of our Faith. The role of altar boy, like the Eucharist itself, is centered on and oriented to the Priesthood of Christ. Introducing young women into this well ordered hierarchy is deceitful, tricking young women into thinking they can have a part in this religious structure, and blaspheming the Lord’s Body and Holy Priesthood toward which our Faith moves. With “altar girls,” the entire edifice of our Faith — the male hierarchy — falls. And surrounding Benedict — the pinnacle of this male hierarchy — with so many women — as young as they may be — is surely not a good idea.
Contrary to the celebratory tone of the NCD blog post — and the apparent views of dissidents at the Vatican — altar girls represent one of the most pernicious developments in the post-Vatican II “Church,” jeopardizing the entire Faith under the liberal banner of “equality.” May women young and old come to know their place in the Church, and we pray that our Most Holy Father will be able to fight this atrocity as it spreads throughout the churches of the world.
