Cancel Culture Comes To Scotland – Teacher Fighting Trial By Wokeness …

From the Mail Online…

With editorial commentary throughout…

A Scottish private school teacher is facing being struck off after slamming Ruth Davidson for having a ‘fatherless child’.
Ed: well, he didn’t “slam” her”.  Ruth’s pregnancy was in the news at the time and he merely used it to comment on relevant issues regarding family life in our changing (and not always for the better) society. 

Richard Lucas, a physics teacher at £35,000-per-year Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh, made the comments on a video he posted to his YouTube channel.
Ed: and as far as we know, that’s still allowed in our “free” country. Yes? No?

Mr Lucas is now being investigated by the General Teaching Council for Scotland for his April 2018 video titled ‘Ruth Davidson and the fatherless children’.  Ed:  oops!  Seems I was a bit previous there…

Private teacher rants about Ruth Davidson having ‘fatherless child’ Ed:  he didn’t “rant” at all.  He spoke very calmly. Indeed, I once attended a meeting at which Richard was present. He didn’t so much as raise his voice during some very lively discussions.  So, that’s a porky pie, for starters.  But, decide for yourself – click here to view the video which may cost Richard his registration with the Scottish Teaching Council for Scotland – and thus, end his career, remove his livelihood. 

He also says: ‘There is cause to be concerned about same sex marriage.’ Mr Lucas made reference to statistics published by American sociologist Mark Regenerus, he said: ‘The statistics always show worse outcomes for children from lesbian and gay parented households.

‘But then the statistical jiggery pokery kicks in and by controlling for one thing or another eventually you can make those effects disappear and claim that the children turn out just as well.

‘There’s good reason to think that there are problems associated with/correlated with same sex parenthood.’
Ed: Mr Lucas is hardly the first person in the world to suggest this – check this report

Mr Lucas now faces being removed from the teaching register altogether following a complaint by a parent.
Ed: which is a total disgrace. And this parent will, no doubt, pay lip-service to the importance of teaching her offspring to be tolerant of everyone, all opinions and none. Hypocrite. 

The GTCS charges read: ‘The meaning and effect of these statements in the 2018 video, is that homosexuality is undesirable as it causes physical and mental health problems. ‘That same sex parenting is inferior to, and is of less value, than heterosexual parenting and should be discouraged as it is harmful to children. The charges continue: ‘Such statements are offensive and/or communicate intolerance, prejudice, discriminatory and/or, are potentially discriminatory. ‘…as a reasonable and properly informed member of the public, having regard to the content of your statements, would conclude that you were intolerant of and prejudiced against same sex parents and would discriminate against them and their children in the course of your duties as a teacher.’
Ed: I beg to differ  On the contrary, any and all thinking persons will conclude that it is the GTCS and the parent responsible for putting Richard Lucas on trial for his beliefs who are intolerant, offensive, prejudiced, and discriminatory. Any “reasonable and properly informed member of the public” will reach that conclusion in jig-time.  Those, that is, who are not yet fully brainwashed – not to say terrified – by the Woke Witch-hunters. Those who can see through the persecution of Richard Lucas. Those, in other words, who can think for themselves. Outside the Woke Box. They know exactly what is going on here. And it’s got absolutely nothing to do with tolerance. 

Speaking today to the panel, Mr Lucas said: ‘I admit to making the comments – I do not think that I am unfit to teach.’
Ed: Bravo, Mr Lucas.  That’s the only way to deal with bullies – stand your [righteous] ground. 

Mr Lucas also took to his Facebook page on Saturday to defend his actions. He said: ‘I still hold the views expressed in the ‘offending’ video and I will continue to articulate these views regularly and publicly as I see fit.
Ed: Bravo, Mr Lucas!

‘Whatever the outcome, I will immediately restate my views publicly and explicitly reject the right of GTCS to restrict my freedom of speech in this way.’
Ed: Bravo, BRAVO! Mr Lucas.

Mr Lucas, who is representing himself at the hearing, today cross examined former Headmaster of Merchiston Castle Andrew Hunter.
Ed: Oh, that is one wall on which I would love to have been a fly.

Mr Hunter told the panel how he had tried to talk to Mr Lucas about his views, saying: ‘I tried my hardest to nurture you to see that your views had always put you on a collision course. ‘It is in my personal view that in such a vocation we cannot adopt such a view that was expressed in the video. ‘I don’t think it’s our right to irrespective of what any religious texts may say. Whether it’s the bible or the quran.’
Ed: WOW! He’s a treasure, eh?   His patron saint is Pontius Pilate. Hand him a bowl of water and a clean towel (or maybe sanitizer would be more woke). As an aside allow me to opine that maybe he should be on trial himself:  for a Headmaster, his command of the English language isn’t the best – and isn’t “Headmaster” a tad sexist?  Just sayin’ … 

Mr Lucas then quoted the Catechism of the Catholic Church to which legal advisor Gareth Jones interrupted, saying: ‘The purpose of the witness is not to descend into personal attacks during cross examination.’
Ed: note:  Richard is not a Catholic but a committed Evangelical Protestant – that he quotes from the Catechism, is evidence, right there, that he’s no bigot. 

Mr Lucas closed his questioning by asking: ‘Is your honest belief that because I believe in mainstream Christian beliefs it makes me unfit to teach?’
Ed: that’s it in a nutshell. Answer: yes.  Now, read on for the Head’s waffle…

The former headmaster replied: ‘I tried to say to you, do not you think you have to moderate these views to context and meet people halfway. I tried to get you to acknowledge that if we have faith we can not say such things when there are people around us who have some faith or no faith at all.
Ed: this is the bit where Pontius Pilate slaps on that sanitizer…

‘I wanted the best for you and the students.’
Ed: false:  what you wanted was what was best for you – an easy life; what you wanted was to get a pesky parent off your back. There’s not a teacher in the land who can’t “picture the scene”. 

Deputy head Alan Johnston was also cross examined by the former school teacher. In his statement, Mr Johnston said: ‘He was getting close to crossing the line, a line he hadn’t previously crossed. ‘Richard is clever, he never explicitly says the words I think. He thought the school thought he had extreme or radical views.’
Ed: anyone who thinks the Ten Commandments make sense, is thought to hold “extreme or radical views.”  Thanks for the tip. We know which private school we won’t recommend to our wealthy friends when we make some said wealthy friends. 

Mr Lucas was adamant during the hearing that the school was monitoring his political party the Scotland Family Party.
Ed: and that is without a doubt.  Check out the Scottish Family Party short introductory video here… With widespread publicity, the new Scottish Family Party is a real threat to the inhabitants of Holyrood – they could entirely change the shape of the next Scottish Parliament. 

When he questioned Mr Johnston about this, the deputy head said: ‘I think initially we thought that people have the right to an opinion – we were not monitoring your online behaviour.
Ed: well, initially you were right. You should have stuck with that thought and told the pesky parent what to do with her woke complaint.

Mr Lucas questioned Mr Johnston further, asking: ‘My video supposedly infringed aspects of Merchiston Castle – did it?’

Mr Johnston replied: ‘Voicing an opinion which makes anyone feel less accepted is intolerable. Our values are to be accepting.’
Ed: well, the best way to teach is by example, so you need to show Mr Lucas that HE is accepted; that HIS values are accepted.  Simple, really. 

The hearing continues.    Source

 

Comment:

Well, it’s officially here.  Cancel Culture. We must not deviate from the politically correct path or we face “re-education” at best and sacking at worst. To find out where this “cancel culture” is heading, just look across The Pond… Anyone who doesn’t agree with Joe Biden and his fellow Communists can’t even purchase a pillow, for goodness sake.  We have to nip this in the bud – if it’s not too late. What thinkest thou?   But first, spare a prayer for Richard Lucas, who is undergoing a most disgraceful persecution. Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for him…

If The Communist Plot To Steal American Election Works, World Tyranny Follows…

Comment: 

I had no sooner prepared this thread, than YouTube removed the above video.  Happily I found it elsewhere, so you can watch and guess why it “violated YouTube’s terms of service” – which are designed to keep the truth from us. 

The comment below, taken from the YouTube platform says it all…

Death From Covid Preferable to Tyranny? 

The day after Governor Tim Walz announced new lockdowns in the state of Minnesota, Michael Matt address the “Stuff Your Mandate” rally outside of the governor’s mansion. Michael touches on the questions of the Great Reset and the long term plan behind the lockdowns and ongoing war on civil liberties in America and around the world. (Taken from The Remnant – click here for source).

Comment: 

Today, the mainstream media is interpreting President Trump’s tweet announcing that he has recommended General Services Administration head Emily Murphy to move forward with transition, as an acceptance of defeat. Click  here to read more.  Is the media jumping to conclusions – is this  the end of the Trump presidency and if so is the world now is at the mercy of the globalists’ drive to totally control us? 

We’re already living under totalitarian rule in the UK – Donald Trump is the only leader fighting this tyranny.  If he is unjustly thrown out of the White House, what next for the world?   Joe Biden is already using the globalist slogan “Build Back Better” which means better for him, for them, for the elite behind The Great Reset. Another slogan being spread abroad is “You’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy about it…” And Michael Matt is correct when he says this is not a conspiracy theory, they’re shouting it from the rooftops:  here’s the World Economic Forum spelling it out as clearly as possible, so that we are all prepared for The Great Reset of God’s world to conform to tyrannical rule…

Marxist Pope Francis is part of it all – so, as we witness the Fatima prophecies unfolding before our very eyes, we must pray, pray, pray, and when we’ve done that, pray again. And alongside our prayer, we must act; as Michael Matt says, we must resist this tyranny in every way possible. 

Yet, incredibly, it seems that many – if not most – people will disagree with the assertion that death from Covid is preferable to tyranny.  Are you one of those people – or would you prefer to risk dying from “the virus” rather than  lose your personal and religious freedoms;  rather than live under totalitarian rule forever?  Here’s another glimpse into life in the future – certainly for those of you hoping to travel the world… already one airline has said it will require proof of vaccination for international travel – click here to read more

Who will fight to save us from this tyranny if Donald Trump is forced out of office by the demonic forces which have been working against his presidency since before even he took office. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!   

Turmoil USA: Tucker Carlson Quotes Archbp Viganò’s Letter to President Trump

For the third time, the above video has been removed on YouTube. None of the programme seems to be online, so we can’t publish the clip of Tucker’s comments about Archbishop Viganò.  However, the clips are included in the following Dr Taylor Marshall video…

Comment: 
Tucker seems to do his homework, as indicated in his inclusion of parts of Archbishop Viganò’s letter to the President. And he covers so many angles in his search for the truth about what is going on right now, in the name of Covid-19. We know that he’s watched across the world, and that other commentators will now be alerted to the existence of the Archbishop’s letter.  This can only help encourage those with a mind to investigative journalism surely?

Thanks, too, to Dr Taylor Marshall for his commentary, with inclusion of the segment from Tucker’s show.   

US Election Fraud: Blatantly Biased Corporation(s), Bishops & Other Liars…

Editor writes…

We are witnessing the blatant attempted theft of Donald J. Trump’s clear election victory in America, with the shameless assistance of the utterly biased mainstream media (represented in the above headline by the evil BBC and its ilk)  and by Facebook and Twitter.  That is bad enough.  However, the absolutely scandalous intervention of the US Bishops – and, without a doubt, the UK Bishops to follow, for they are every bit as anti-Catholic – has prompted our American blogger, RCA Victor, to pen the following excellent Open Letter…
Open Letter to the US Bishops…
To The Democrat Party at Prayer, aka The Lavender Mafia:

Your acceptance of the alleged victory of the Deep State’s marionette candidate, the utterly corrupt, traitorous, mentally defunct, pro-abortion, pro-transgender apostate Catholic, Joe Biden, is certainly not surprising, given your long-term intimate relationship with the leftist side of the aisle – a side that, conveniently, supplies you annually with millions of Federal dollars to “re-settle” illegal immigrants.

Nor is it surprising to witness your constant public carping and chipping away at President Trump’s attempts to snatch America from the tentacles of global socialism and restore American sovereignty – a sovereignty that has been thoroughly compromised for years by your fair-haired boys like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama.

What is somewhat surprising, however, is the eagerness with which you display your sycophantic stupidity and corruption: not only in endorsing an anti-Catholic candidate and his even more anti-Catholic running mate; not only in the not so subtle encouragement of your flock to vote for him (thereby putting millions of souls in mortal danger), but now, in blithely endorsing the result of the most massive and blatant electoral fraud in American history.

I can only conclude from this that you, like Joe Biden, are not only apostates, but also traitors. Therefore, I consider the lot of you not only enemies of the Catholic Church, but enemies of America as well.

May God have mercy on your darkened souls and hardened hearts.

Sincerely Yours In Christ
(Signed)  

 

Comment:

As of November 4, Biden had got over 70.7 million votes, more than anyone who has ever run for president, the National Public Radio (NPR) reported. This count includes 300,000 more votes than what Obama got in 2008, which was the previous record. Biden surpassed the popular vote record of 69,498,516 set by Obama in 2008. Source

Here’s a video which has amused us often on this blog, detailing some of Joe Biden’s gaffes – not so funny any more if you think that he may well cheat his way to placing his finger on the nuclear button… 

Ask yourself, seriously, is it remotely likely that Joe Biden could have won this election fair and square? Come on, man! 

And then ask yourself, very seriously, if he manages to cheat his way to victory what lies ahead for the rest of the world?  I’ve heard Australian commentators express concern that Australia’s “China problem” will only get worse.  Correction, friends in Aussie-land, the entire world’s “China problem” will only get worse. That’s for sure.  

In summary – thank you sincerely, RCA Victor, for calling out the US Bishops on their scandalous support for pro-abortion Biden.  It’s due to the dire state of the Church in our times that we desperately need Donald J. Trump for another four years… That message comes through loud and clear in  your excellent letter – thank you!   

USA Election Affects Whole World – Trump Win Essential For Democracy…

Comment:

The impression is being given, both in the USA and here in the UK, that the election is in the bag for Biden.  Let’s hope and pray that this is not the case because it would have serious consequences for life across the world, including the UK.  We are already experiencing Police State tactics here, and increasingly so;  watch this video about the young English mother who was arrested – and is living under Bail conditions – for attending an anti-lockdown protest…

There is no question that we are seeing tyrannical governance in action today in various parts of the world, perhaps more so in the UK than in America.  Trump apparently said at one of his many recent rallies that if he is returned to the White House he will be visiting foreign leaders to educate them about the truth about this virus (I paraphrase, but that is the sense of what I’m told he said at one of his rallies a day or so ago.) Fear of this virus, whether real or contrived, is being used to subject us to tyranny.  That is now indisputable. 

We need Donald Trump to be returned for a number of reasons, not least so that he can  to continue his efforts to save unborn and newly born  babies from being put to death.  The latest news on that front is that Trump has issued a proclamation promoting adoption as an alternative to abortion. That he is pro-life and Biden is pro-death should suffice for any Christian to vote to return Trump to the White House. 

In the case of a Biden victory, not only will the murder of unborn and newly born babies continue (Biden & Harris are unashamedly pro-abortion without limits, i.e. to include infanticide), but Amy Stewart won’t be the last victim of tyrannical State rule here in the UK. Not for nothing is the President of the USA called “leader of the free world”.  Team Biden is not interested in “freedom” – he’s already promising to lockdown America (in the name of the virus, of course) if he were to win today’s election. 

Without Trump in the White House, democracy and life itself will be  – literally – endangered species… Why would any Catholic NOT vote for Trump?  As one commentator wrote on the YouTube platform under a video promoting a Trump win buildings are not being boarded up in Washington DC for fear of having Trump Tweets thrown at them…  The alternative to Trump is a vicious, violent Party which hates both democracy and human life.  No Catholic may, in good conscience, vote for that. They must pray – and vote – for another 4 years in the White House for Donald J. Trump.  And if they don’t like his tweets, tough!  Actress, Kirstie Alley sums up that dilemma beautifully in the video at the top of this page:  when the choice is between “rough and tough” or “snakes” there is no contest.  

God bless America!    

USA Election: Priest On Voting Priorities – Warns Against “Catholic” Biden…

Comment: 

Even without the above excellent sermon I could not see how any American Catholic could vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.  After listening to the sermon, I’d dearly love to hear from any Catholic who still intends to vote for the Democratic Party. If every priest in the USA preached like that, there would be no question whatsoever about the outcome of the November election.  Therefore, let’s pray, in the remaining time, for some lights to switch on in the heads of currently less enlightened or less courageous priests.  As the priest in the video says, this election is a battle for the soul of America, no less – it is, unarguably, a battle for the soul of the free world.  Archbishop Fulton Sheen is quoted in the above sermon.  Here’s the Archbishop again, on the charge that the Church interferes in politics…

“… Is this true? It all depends upon what you mean by politics. If by interference in politics is meant using influence to favor a particular regime, party, or system that respects the basic God-given rights and freedom of persons, the answer is emphatically No! The Church does not interfere in politics. If by interference in politics is meant judging or condemning a philosophy of life that makes the party or state, or the class, or the race, the source of all rights, and that usurps the soul and enthrones party over conscience and denies those basic rights for which the war was fought, the answer is emphatically Yes!

The Church does judge such a philosophy. But when it does this, it is not interfering with politics, for such politics is no longer politics but theology. When a state sets itself up as absolute as God, when it claims sovereignty over the soul, when it destroys freedom of conscience and freedom of religion, then the state has ceased to be political and has begun to be a counter-Church.”  Ends. 

This is exactly what is happening, not just in America but here in the UK as well and in particular in socialist Scotland. So, why are there so few priests speaking out to warn, educate and edify the faithful?  

Coronavirus “Crisis” Increasingly Sinister & Dangerous… Where’s Pope Francis? 

Discussed in the above video…

  • Police state pandemic restrictions in Melbourne, Australia are terrifying.
  • Joe Biden announces plan to hire 100,000 contact tracers as soon as he takes office.
  • Antifa/BLM protesters set up guillotines all across America, including in front of home of Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos. What. Is. Going. ON. HERE?
  • Leftist group announces plans for a September “White House Siege”, as America braces for pre-election Reign of Terror?
  • Pope Francis suggests that, in order to be not hypocritical, defenders of the sanctity of human life need to support BLM.
  • Can America’s 51 million Catholics in good conscience vote for Joe Biden? Cardinal Raymond Burke takes Joe ‘The Catholic’ Biden to task on Fox News.
  • Bernie Sanders says Trump is the ‘most dangerous president in U.S. history.” Why Trump terrifies the radical Left?
  • Finally, is this street revolution in America really about race and capitalism, or is it global anarchy?

Comment:

Thing are steadily worsening. I speak to people who chat to taxi-drivers and bus drivers and other members of the travelling public all the time, and there is a growing awareness, thankfully, that the changes to our way of life being imposed by politicians in the name of “health” and “safety” has nothing whatsoever to do with a virus.   What about the people around you – are they becoming more alert to the truth of what is really happening?

But first…

A couple of lighter points;  first some good news…

Our blogger Gabriel Syme and his wife are expecting the third addition to their lovely family – in fact, baby is overdue and is expected to arrive any time soon.  So, pray for that intention – that the baby’s self-imposed local lockdown ends tonight, as now expected.  Our Lady, Queen & Mother, pray for mum and baby…

Also, one of our readers made me laugh a hearty laugh this morning, after Mass, when he described his encounter with a policeman at a railway station recently.  Not another soul around, but the policeman still questioned why our reader wasn’t wearing a face mask.  Eventually, he told the policeman to “Foxtrot off” – priceless.  Actually, the policeman was very polite and the exchange was civilised, so I’m guessing our reader spiced it up in the telling.  Whatever, it makes for a bit of fun! And do we need some fun these days? Does a gal need her regular coffee and fresh cream meringues? 

Covid 19: Weaponizing Medicine…Doctors & Media Have Blood On Their Hands…

Comment: 

I’ve become a fan of Dennis Prager, especially his fireside chats.  I don’t always agree with everything he says, but I like him.  Someone should tell him this – it will make his day…  😀  

The above video is one of the best I’ve seen.  Dennis exposes the way an unholy alliance of corrupt media, medicine and phony science has misled the public throughout this Covid-19 “crisis” and it is truly disgraceful.  It is chilling to think that there are people in the media, medicine, science and politics who hate Donald Trump more than they love saving lives.  Utterly beyond comprehension.   

Do you agree with Dennis that all those involved have blood on their hands?   

USA Election: Pro-Life Priest Forced To Resign From Trump Advisory Boards…

.-  

Priests for Life national director Fr. Frank Pavone has resigned from advisory positions in the reelection campaign of President Donald Trump. The priest withdrew at the direction of Church authorities, he told CNA Friday.

“I’ve been requested by the competent ecclesiastical authority not to have an official title/position on the advisory boards. So, as a priest in good standing, I’ve followed that request,” Pavone told CNA July 24, in response to questions about his role in the Trump campaign.

In January, Pavone was appointed co-chair of the Pro-Life Voices for Trump coalition, and in April was announced as a member of the Catholics for Trump advisory board; the priest headlined that month an online kickoff event for the Trump Catholic group. Both groups are organized as part of the Trump campaign. Pavone was also a co-chair of the Trump pro-life coalition in 2016.

Pavone’s role in a political campaign was unusual for a priest. Members of the clergy require permission to “have an active part in political parties,” according to the Church’s canon law.

In April, Pavone told CNA that he did not believe himself to need permission for campaign involvement because he considered Trump’s reelection to be a matter of urgency. “I’m not going to ask anybody’s permission to go scream that the house is on fire,” he said at the time.

But on Friday, Pavone said that he had “been asking for permission to serve on these advisory boards” when he was “requested” to resign from them.

Pavone did not indicate what authorities had directed him to resign from the Trump campaign. In 2005 Pavone was incardinated in the Diocese of Amarillo, Texas, when he transferred to that diocese from the Archdiocese of New York with plans to begin a pro-life religious order of priests. Those plans did not materialize, and Pavone found himself at odds with Bishop Patrick Zurek, soon after the bishop was installed in 2008.

In 2011, the dispute between Pavone and Zurek became public, after the priest was recalled to the diocese and suspended by the bishop. Pavone appealed to the Vatican, and the suspension was eventually lifted in 2012.

In April, the priest told CNA that his relationship with Zurek remained rocky, describing communication with his bishop as “dysfunctional,” and saying that he was in the process of transferring to a new diocese.

The Diocese of Amarillo has not responded to repeated requests from CNA for clarity about Pavone’s political activity or ecclesiastical status, including requests to clarify whether he has faculties to minister publicly as a priest.

Pavone told CNA Friday that he remains incardinated in the Amarillo diocese, “but my transfer has been canonically completed to a different bishop who has good will toward me and my work.” He declined to name that diocese, saying that “the announcement of what diocese I’m in now is up to the same ecclesiastical authority to make.”

While Pavone is no longer part of the Catholics for Trump coalition, the group drew attention on Friday when it announced that author and YouTube commenter Taylor Marshall would join the Catholics for Trump advisory board.

Pavone’s role in the 2016 Trump campaign sparked considerable controversy in the Church. Ahead of the election the priest filmed a video at the Priests for Life headquarters, urging support for Trump. The video was filmed with the body of an aborted baby laid before Pavone on what appeared to be an altar.

Soon after video’s release, Zurek said he would open an investigation into the incident, calling it “against the dignity of human life” and “a desecration of the altar,” and adding that “the action and presentation of Father Pavone in this video is not consistent with the beliefs of the Catholic Church.”

While the diocese has not announced the results of that investigation, Pavone claims that he has been “cleared of the past complaints/investigations/disciplinary actions by the bishop of Amarillo. That chapter is closed.”

Pavone said that while he will no longer occupy a position in the Trump campaign “nothing has changed in my advocacy for the president, given that the Democrats do indeed pose a grave threat to ‘the rights of the Church’ and ‘the common good,’ a point I’ll be making constantly between now and November 3.”

“Any cleric who doesn’t see that point has his head in the sand or in a Democrat echo chamber,” the priest added.

Pavone is not the only priest in recent U.S. history to make headlines for involvement in an election.

In 2008, Chicago priest Fr. Michael Pfleger drew attention for appearing as part of a “People of Faith for Obama” coalition during then-Senator Barack Obama’s primary battle against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.

Pfleger’s bishop, Cardinal Francis George, said at the time that “while a priest must speak to political issues that are also moral, he may not endorse candidates nor engage in partisan campaigning.”      Source

Comment: 

Is a priest who is promoting the pro-life message, and encouraging Catholics to vote for a candidate who will protect the unborn, the kind of political involvement [of clergy] prohibited in Canon Law?
