This is a massive, massive crisis in and for the Church because a deeply-embedded worldwide homosexual network among our priests, bishops, and cardinals is actively engaged in bringing about the full de-Christianization of the world by preying on boys between 12-18, literally recreating Greco-Roman sexual culture in our seminaries and dioceses. If you want to know what it was like in the sordid sexual days of ancient Greece and Rome, just read the Pennsylvania Report.

Thatís a rather horrible irony, isnít it? The very men most authoritatively charged with the evangelization of all the nations are full-steam ahead bringing about the devangelization of the nations. In doing so, these priests, bishops, and cardinals at the very heart of the Catholic Church are acting as willing agents of repaganization, undoing 2,000 years of Church History.

This is significant. Legatus is a national organization of Catholic businessmen. It was started, and is still run, by Tom Monaghan, the founder of Dominoís Pizza. Itís pretty conservative. Monaghan informed the national membership that the Legatus board has decided to withhold its annual $1 million tithe to the Vatican for the time being. Hereís the text of the letter:...

This is good. The best way to get some action on this is to hit them where it hurts.

I believe that consciousness for the crazy ape will be achieved through evolution, not ideology (but only if we manage to survive our own insanity). Ideology is the mask of consciousness. Meanwhile, we're bonobos in space ships.

One has to wonder if the idea of individuality will survive. Perhaps we'll evolve into something more like bees, with strictly prescribed social codes and roles? We tossed the divine right of kings which, under humanism, became the divine right of individuals to pursue their own happiness as they saw fit. Maybe it's nothing more than (as a species) we still have way too much reptilian brain running the show and if we can somehow manage to survive without wiping ourselves out, we will evolve out of it and the higher functions of our brains will come to dominate?

Meanwhile, there's a giant self-obsessed chimp in the White House, running amok. The problem isn't just that priests are buggering boys. There are humans out there who will bugger anything that can't escape: Livestock, pets, vacuum cleaners, the hole in the pool where the hot water comes out, apple pies, a slab of liver... the list is endless. Who hasn't clicked on the weird beastiality site featuring some girl entertaining Mr. Ed just so we can go, "EWWWWW! That's some weird ****!" Well, I haven't. But people do that ****.

If we're going to evolve into more conscious or intelligent life forms, then it would be nice if there were some way to speed the process.

It's not like humanity has forever...

Sounds like Stephen Hawking's just trying to bum everybody out. I don't know how well I'll sleep after watching that ****. I suppose, given all that, we are currently in a Golden Age of humanity.

Well, that's depressing. I guess the only hope for our species is to figure out a way to move into space at better than light speed and find new places to live. Either that, or figure out a way to incorporate our intelligence into technology in such a way that temperatures or sustenance are immaterial. Of course, if we take that route, are we still the same species?

Confronting such eventualities can be depressing, to be sure, but there's also something liberating, IMO, in the acceptance that nothing, whether an individual, a civilization, a species, a planet or "_____" (continue to zoom out) lasts forever.

Regarding the exploration of space, the best we can hope for at present is the possibility of sending small, unmanned probes to the nearest star system (Alpha Centauri) in 40 years or so. Us old codgers probably won't be around to see it.

Sorry...depressing again.

Who knows, by the time all this stuff transpires, man (and all the intelligent life in the rest of the universe) will be little glowing balls of energy floating through space, who will then, once the stars are extinguished, gather up all the matter in the universe and compress it down to the size of a walnut until gravity causes it to explode outwards, starting the whole show over again, scattering all those little energy balls across the universe to seed new planets with life and resume a pattern that has already been repeated trillions of times; The universe spawning it's own regeneration through the mechanism of life, endlessly.






We are become life, the creator of worlds.

This video discusses the fate of the universe in more detail.

Note that it will take hundreds of trillions of years for the last stars in the universe to die.

That's really an incomprehensible length of time when you try to wrap your mind around it.

Heretic Hunting Among The Innocents: Intimidation & Climate Change

Behold a chapter in a book Iím writing, an updated blend of two pieces I wrote for Christian Ethics Today. The book maps out how white American evangelical Christianity morphed from intellectual sophistication into an arena for bullies, trashing its heritage and time-honored creeds in the process.

Interesting takeaways from a recent survey conducted by the Cato Institute.


...in general, churchgoing Republicans look more like the party many elite conservatives wanted to believe existed before Trump came along ó more racially-tolerant, more accepting of multiculturalism and globalization, and also more consistently libertarian on economics. Secularized Trump voters look more like the party as Trump has tried to remake it, blending an inchoate economic populism with strong racial resentments. ...

One thing I believe that I don't think they address is that Trump pushed many Republican-leaning moderates into the Clinton camp but pulled a lot of the less-educated populists out of the old Democratic camp (ie 'Blue Wall')

Praise Jay-sus!

Founder Of Nationís Largest Christian Music Festival Gets 18 Years For Molesting Little Girls

Pastor Harry Thomas cried when he was sentenced to 18 years in prison for sexually assaulting multiple pre-teen girls.

Thomas, founder of the Creation Festival, billed as the nationís largest Christian music festival, was sentenced to 18 years in prison Friday after sexually assaulting four minors and having ďinappropriate interactionĒ with another.

The corrupt pastor pleaded guilty in February to raping one pre-teen girl and sexually assaulting three others between 1999 and November 2015. He also pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a fifth girl.

The 18 year sentence includes no possibility of parole, which means the 75-year-old pastor will most probably die in prison.

Orange Mane WRP forum readers don't need a study - all they have to do is read this thread.

Study Links Religious Belief To Poor Understanding Of Physical World

Ignorance and defective thinking styles lead to religious superstition.

A poor understanding of the physical world is linked to religious and paranormal beliefs in a new study.

A recent study published June 2016 in Applied Cognitive Psychology connects belief in the supernatural (religious and paranormal beliefs) with poor reasoning skills, low information about basic physics and biology, and a propensity to assign intention and mentality to non-mental phenomena (magical thinking).

PsyPost reports the study shows that religious and paranormal (supernatural) beliefs are correlated with ďpoor intuitive physics skills, poor mechanical ability, poor mental rotation, low school grades in mathematics and physics, poor common knowledge about physical and biological phenomena, intuitive and analytical thinking styles, and in particular, with assigning mentality to non-mental phenomena.Ē
