Covid Lockdowns to Climate Lockdowns…


Comment: 

Rowan Dean, of Sky News Australia, shows up the inexcusable ignorance of the UK press for peddling the lie that The Great Reset of the world, planned by the elite at the World Economic Forum (and other outfits with “World” in their titles)  is nothing more than a conspiracy theory. 

It’s inexcusable because we can see what  happens when  journalists and reporters fail to  do what they’re  supposed to do, which is to challenge and investigate. Who has challenged the Government’s authoritarian behaviour this past year?  Who has seriously examined the Covid data – apart from our own Athanasius/Martin Blackshaw? I stopped watching the daily press briefings  because the questions were always the same, floor level “challenges”: “When will there be more testing?”  “Why can’t nursing homes have more PPE” and other stuff which could have been asked and answered via email. 

As a result of this weak press pack, the populations across the UK have gone along, apparently unthinkingly, believing the Covid propaganda as they appear to believe the climate propaganda.  Which is why it will be a breeze for politicians to keep us under control and locked down, living under ridiculous restrictions, for as long as they choose. They don’t look like dictators, which is why they can’t possibly be dictators… They’re doing all of this dictatorial stuff because they care about us – get it? 

So, well done Rowan Dean for calling out the Guardian journalist for her massive and inexcusable ignorance.  There is a growing  awareness of The Great Rest in the population, but it’s no thanks to the media. Word of mouth, online mostly, and information given out at the few public protest rallies here and there, mostly, it seems, in London. 

Importantly, Rowan updates us on the World Economic Forum (WEF) plans to mimic the “success” of Covid lockdowns by using them in the pursuit of the climate change agenda.   

Is there a bishops anywhere who is going to call out this baloney for what it is?  Not the Bishop of Rome, obviously – he’s now part of the propaganda machine – but what about the other successors of the apostles: do any of them remember Christ’s exhortation to not worry about the environment, that not  even a sparrow falls from a tree to the ground but God the Father knows it and will take care of us, that we are not to spend our lives worrying about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself? 

One way or another, we are not going to get our freedoms back for the foreseeable future. That’s been clear for a very long time now. Perhaps you disagree?  Let’s hear it…

Is Pontiff Contradicting Scripture When He Warns of a Second Great Flood? 

ROME — Pope Francis has warned of the possibility of a second great flood, like that of Noah’s time, if humanity fails to address global warming.
Ed: well, that’s not what it says in the Bible. God explicitly rules out destroying the world by flood again, and even sets His rainbow in the sky as a reminder of this agreement – this covenant –  between Him and the earth (Genesis 9:13)    

“God’s wrath is directed against injustice, against Satan,” the pope states in a book titled Of Vices and Virtues due for release Tuesday. “It is  directed  against evil, not that which derives from human weakness, but evil of Satanic inspiration: the corruption generated by Satan.”
Ed: so Satan doesn’t use our human weakness to tempt us to sin – for which we, individually, are  ultimately responsible?  Somebody should have told CS Lewis  – would have saved him wasting time writing that book about the Devil doing exactly that…

“God’s wrath is meant to bring justice, to ‘clean up,’” the pontiff declares in an advance excerpt of the book published by the Italian daily Corriere della Sera Sunday.

“The Bible says that the flood is the result of God’s wrath,” Francis continues. “It is a figure of God’s wrath, who according to the Bible has seen too many bad things and decides to obliterate humanity.”

“The biblical flood, according to experts, is a mythical tale,” the pope states, parenthetically adding his hope that no one writes that “the pope says the Bible is a myth.”

“But myth is a form of knowledge,” he says. “The flood is a historical tale, archaeologists say, because they found traces of a flood in their excavations.”
Ed: oh, well, if archaeologists say it, it must be true.  Actually, one of the gems I’ve never forgotten from my visit to the Holy Land many years ago now, is this:  that every single archaeological discovery made in the Holy Land confirms what we read in Scripture.  To date, I’ve yet to hear the opposite. For a minute there, I thought that was about to change with Papa Francis bandying around that favourite term of the pseudo-scripture scholars- “myth”.   Thankfully, it seems his rambling has led him to the correct conclusion, for once. History has been made, she said, tongue-in-cheek…

“A great flood, perhaps due to a rise in temperature and the melting of the glaciers, is what will happen now if we continue along the same path,” the pope warns.
Ed: if only you would display half as much faith in divine revelation – including  the account of the Great Flood – as you do to Greta Thunberg’s nonsense, you would know that God has promised never to destroy the world by water again – Read Genesis 9:1-17.  Soon. 

“God unleashed his wrath, but he saw a righteous one, took him and saved him,” he says. “The story of Noah demonstrates that God’s wrath is also  alvific.”   

The pope’s new book recounts conversations between the pontiff and Father Marco Pozza, chaplain of the prison of Padua in the north of Italy.

Francis has made care for the environment and opposition to climate change a hallmark of his almost eight-year pontificate, taking to task world leaders who have shown too little resolve in their battle against global warming.
Ed: pity that isn’t his remit.  His remit is to preach Christ, and Him Crucified – not to peddle pseudo-scientific propaganda.

He said last year that it is “evident” that climate change is to blame for a number of humanity’s social ills, as well as disrupting the balance of nature.
Ed: gimme strength.

“It is evident that climate change not only upsets the balance of nature, but causes poverty and hunger, affects the most vulnerable, and sometimes forces them to leave their land,” the pope told a group gathered in the Vatican.
Ed: as intimated above, if this pope would spend half the time reading solid Catholic literature – starting with the Book of Genesis  – that he spends reading climate propaganda, we might begin to hear something from him that points the world to God. Right now, he comes across as merely another climate activist, thus bringing the papal office into disrepute. 

The pope’s audience consisted of participants in a meeting of members of the Laudato Sì community, named after the pontiff’s 2015 encyclical letter on the environment, which bears the same name.
Ed: preaching to the already converted, then. That’s fine.  Keep it that way – the rest of us are not remotely interested. 

“We need a real will to tackle the root causes of the ongoing climate upheavals,” Francis insisted. “Generic commitments are not enough — words, words.”     Source
Ed: well, er… isn’t that what you’ve just done – thrown out some more words, words, words…  What do you want us all to do – stop attending churches (if they ever reopen) to save electricity?  Cancel all choirs, to avoid polluting the air?  What then?

Is Climate Change The New Religion? 

Comment:

The new Biden administration in the USA is putting climate change centre-stage again, and we’re being told, here in the UK,  that once we are successful in suppressing “the virus” (mission impossible) we will have to continue living a seriously restricted lifestyle, including the continued wearing of face marks, to prevent the dire consequences of climate change. So,  is Alan Jones right?  Is the alleged climate science intellectual rubbish, with the alarmist focus turning it into, effectively, a new religion?   A “new religion” note, which has been welcomed by Pope Francis. Or is it nothing more serious than the annoying obsession of a few tree-hugging activists who peddle their propaganda in place of true religion?   

Is God in Charge of the Weather?

With yet another storm (Dennis) due to hit the UK this weekend, let’s challenge the secular wisdom, reinforced by Pope Francis that humans are causing extreme weather because we insist  on using plastic bags and drive petrol cars.  IS this erratic and often treacherous weather due to human behaviour, or is God telling us something about the way we are living – and I don’t mean that He wants us to start buying electric cars…   

There is no shortage of biblical evidence that God controls the weather, although there is a manifest shortage of Catholic websites and videos reflecting that truth.  God  has established what we think of as scientific laws and principles governing the weather but He remains in charge.  God can dispense with His laws for His own purposes, when He sees fit.  Is that what is happening now, with professional weather forecasters struggling to explain what is going on these days?  

Is “Storm Dennis” on its way because God wants to remind  us of something?  If so, what?  

Catechism: Pope Francis Considering New Sin – Well, it had to come… 

The environment

According to Pope Francis, acts such as the massive pollution of air, land and water resources, large-scale destruction of flora and fauna, and any action capable of producing an ecological disaster or destroying an ecosystem should be regarded as “ecocidal” and must not go unpunished.
In this regard, he recalled the Synod for the Panamazon Region, which proposed to define an act or omission against God, against one’s neighbour, the community and the environment, as “ecological sin”.  Click here to read entire report on Vatican News…

One of these days, he just might mention GOD!

Comment: 

Well,  it had to come eventually.  We’ve had a new Mass, new Sacraments, new Rosary, new Catechism, new Evangelisation,  new everything, just about, so it’s time for (drum roll) a new sin.  Obvious.  Now all that has to be decided is, will this new sin be a mortal sin or a venial sin?  What sort of penances will the priest give in confession – picking up litter in a street near you, at least three times (I get 3 Hail Marys a lot, so I’ll be livid if the litter picking penance is less than three times…) or maybe abstaining from driving your car for three days (three should always be the minimum, in my humble opinion…) OR what about sacrificing a holiday abroad for the next (you guessed it) three years?

Extinction Rebellion: Priest Protester Making An Idiot of Himself – Clown!

I emailed via the Order’s website as follows but, as ever, I’m not holding my breath for a reply.  After all, as one friend said, these folk are never going to be taking part in pro-life protests – they won’t want humans polluting the planet.  Clowns.

MY EMAIL VIA THE PASSIONISTS’ WEBSITE

From the Editor, Catholic Truth…

I am preparing to launch a blog discussion about the priest who participated in the extinction rebellion protest atop a train, so in the interests of fairness and balance, I wanted to check if and when this same priest has ever participated in any pro-life gathering or are there copies of letters you may be able to provide where he has written to MPs etc. on the subject of the murder of unborn babies or any other moral issue. 

 Also, is he aware of the letter sent by 500 climate scientists to the UN offering evidence to prove that there is NO climate emergency.

 I look forward to your early reply. 

 Thank you  [Ends].

Comments invited…

…because, having watched that idiot on the news (I assume it is the same idiot who was pulled from the train)*  I am,  frankly, speechless that he is a priest.  Over to you! 

* As corrected below in the comments, this is not the case.  The protester pulled by the commuters from the top of the train was yet another idiot, at another station. I remain speechless, however, that any priest would behave in such a juvenile manner. Clown. 

Climate Cult & Conforming Kids…

In the above short discussion, the speakers acknowledge that the Climate Change movement is, in fact, “religion replacement”.

Julia Hartley-Brewer tries to pin down one of the leaders of the Green Party to “facts not fearmongering” – doesn’t work! 

Comment: 

What is MOST shocking about the entire climate change baloney is that Pope Francis has given the movement his full backing. Earlier this week, one of our Irish readers sent me  a leaflet circulating in the Diocese of Kerry (and no doubt the rest of Ireland) which opens with an unequivocal  statement that we have only “11 years to save Our Common Home” and then the following quote from this worst-ever pontiff: 

“Time is runnning out!  Deliberations must go beyond mere exploration of what can be done, and concentrate on what needs to be done.   The climate crisis requires our decisive action, here and now and the Church is fully committed to playing her part.”  [Pope Francis].

If he were to exhort young people to work hard to build virtuous lives and so avoid the truly terrifying prospect of eternity in Hell, Pope Francis would, of course, lose his star appeal and the airwaves would be full of shocked “liberals” demanding that children be allowed to enjoy their lives without being filled with fear about Hell.  Fear about the end of the world in a mere 11 years, however, that’s fine.  No problem.  Anyway, it’s a moot point.  Papa Francis is never going to terrify youngsters with talk of Hell … Why? 

Answer:  because somewhere along the line, he has lost his Faith. Agreed?   

By Royal Command: Stop Having [more than two] Children – Save the Planet! 

Comment: 

Having fallen for the climate change propaganda, Prince Harry has promised to do his bit – not by cycling or cutting down on those private jet flights, but (drum roll) by limiting his family to only two children.  Click here to read more

Now, not a lot of people are having more than two children these days (unless the original twosome doesn’t conform to the “one boy, one girl” package) but, still, his words send a signal which will encourage the gullible to follow his shocking example.  I’ve already had a “you had to hear it to believe it” conversation with a check-out assistant in a local supermarket who “worries” about climate change, to the extent that she told her married children that she doesn’t want grandchildren, for the sake of saving the planet.  And this was way before today’s news about Prince Harry’s and Meghan’s decision. Truly, you just couldn’t make this stuff up. 

Although, somebody did – the pseudo-scientists who spread, and continue to spread, a message of fear and alarm about the end of the world, which, when it comes from Evangelical preachers rightly concerned about the wrath of God descending upon us, is laughed away as evidence of eccentricity.

Remember Climategate, folks?  Not a lot of people seem to remember it; it hasn’t featured in any of the recent reports about the extreme weather, or the “babies to blame” debates as the newspaper reviewers unthinkingly agree that Prince Harry has set the standard.  Fewer babies, better planet.  The same commentators who are  lamenting our departure from the EU with an end to freedom of movement and thus a shortage, they believe, of workers in many professions, are now supporting the Prince’s call for population control.  Laugh? I thought I’d never start. 

When you hear a Prince promising to have “two maximum” children and China being praised for its one-child policy now turned two-child policy, is there really any doubt that population control is the real motive underlying the drive for “action” to deal with the “problem” of climate change? 

Pope Francis (not climate change) Is Leading The World Towards Disaster…

Pope Francis: Climate Crisis ‘Leading the World Towards Disaster’  From Brietbart… 

If only he were writing his resignation letter – Sigh…

Pope Francis painted a frightening picture of a global climate emergency Monday, saying we humans must “correct our path before it is too late.”

“Around the world, we are seeing heat waves, droughts, forest fires, floods and other extreme meteorological events, rising sea levels, the emergence of diseases and further problems that are only a dire premonition of things much worse to come, unless we act and act urgently,” the pope told a group of leaders assembled at the Vatican for a meeting titled “Climate Change and New Evidence from Science, Engineering, and Policy.”

“Time is of the essence,” the pope told the group, which included the president of the General Assembly of the United Nations and the finance ministers of various nations. “You are here today to reflect on how to remedy this profound crisis caused by a confusion of our moral ledger with our financial ledger. You are here to help stop a crisis that is leading the world towards disaster.” …

… The U.N. program endorsed by the pope goes well beyond addressing climate change, however, and encompasses “17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets,” some of which directly contradict the Catholic Church’s core beliefs regarding human life.  [Emphasis added, for what should be very obvious reasons…]

“We are committed to ensuring universal access to sexual and reproductive health-care services, including for family planning, information and education,” the program declares, which includes the putative right to abortion.

The United Nations has been one of the most implacable forces behind a worldwide push for legalized abortion, under its umbrella goals of “reproductive health” and “gender equality.”

In the years leading up to Ireland’s 2018 abortion referendum, for example, the UN repeatedly attacked Ireland for its pro-life laws, employing its international muscle to demand that the predominantly Catholic nation repeal the Eighth Amendment to its constitution that protected the right to life of unborn infants.

One ruling from U.N. human rights “experts,” for instance, said that Ireland’s abortion ban “subjects women to discriminatory, cruel and degrading treatment.”

In 2017, the U.N. Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) committee attempted to pressure Ireland into changing its abortion laws, declaring that the Eighth Amendment violated women’s rights because it “unduly restricts access to abortion.”

The U.N. committee insisted that Irish law be changed to allow “the introduction of amendments to current legislation governing access to abortion.”   Click here to read the above Brietbart report in full.  

Comment: 

We already know that this Pope is more interested in politics than Catholicism, that he accepts, without criticism, the latest scientific fad, while ignoring the Message of Fatima despite paying lip-service to some of it;  that he fears the destruction of the planet through man-made climate change more than the retribution from God which he is making more likely by the nano-second through his failure to act in accordance with his papal office.  He is duty bound to protect the Faith, to ensure that no changes are made to it and that the natural moral order established by God is obeyed. He’s doing none of that.  Quite the reverse – he has actively encouraged breaking with Catholic Faith Tradition and living in sexual couplings outside of marriage.  He’s easily the worst ever pontiff in the entire history of the Church – that is a fact, not up for discussion. 

Obviously, we need to pray for him – his very salvation is at risk; no question about it.  On the other hand,  are we – as we have been accused, often –  just a bunch of extremists, concerned needlessly?  After all, very few bishops are saying a word, and none of them are Scots, English, Welsh or Irish.  Why is that?  Could it be that the modernists are right, that we should be turning our attention to issues such as the environment, having “lost” the battle for traditional marriage, the sanctity of life and other fuddy duddy matters best forgotten?   Maybe, since the vast majority of Catholics are going along with what is going on in the Church right now, and since he’s a very popular pope – as would be any shopkeeper who turned a blind eye to the children nicking the sweets – maybe we just need to get with the programme and accept that things change, time to move on… After all, if the Pope himself can endorse the UN programme which endorses the right to contraception and abortion… Well – who are we to contradict him?   

Climate Change: Pupils Protest – Are They Not Taught Critical Thinking?

Tomorrow, pupils across the UK are walking out of school, on strike in protest against the climate change caused by Joe Bloggs, which is allegedly destroying the planet.  Click here to read this news, widely report in the print and broadcasting media across the UK.  Then take five minutes to listen to the short video clip below, to recall what happened to one climate scientist when she began to ask for, er… data…
In October 2018, we discussed her persecution here
