Noirette said, “ Pope Francis imho didn’t have much choice. Going against the vaxx would be so detrimental…”
I’m not a Catholic myself but those I know are conservatives and they say that it’s irrelevant how detrimental it would be to go against the jab as it’s a fundamental principle of Catholicism. Mind you, they also disagree with having Francis opening the church up to LGBT+ (Bosco’s point) to gain in popularity. They tell me that it’s driving more away than it’s bringing in.
There’s a suggestion from them that “forces” deliberately set out to weaken the Church by undermining its central tenets. This started with Vatican II and the scrapping of the Latin mass. All the sexual scandals (while not denied) have been bigged up in the media to discredit the Church. Francis as a liberal pope just adds to that.
Why (assuming my catholic friends are right) was this necessary? Did TPTB consider Rome to be a serious threat to their ambitions? If so, in what way?November 13, 2021 at 10:16 pm #92322November 13, 2021 at 10:17 pm #92323Veracious PoetParticipant

Damn, tdk. My ears are so bad I can hardly hear the violin high notes any more. Still, great stuff. KLezmer gets me high.
Here’s an old Jewish folk song:
that my son and I sang, when he was about 7 and full of potty humor, like so:
Come see my farts
Shoot flaming sparks
We must be careful on Hannukah
In days of old
Great turds were rolled
ANd set on fire on Hannukah
In the ancient days of toiletry
Only one potty with just one bowl
But there was a mighty miracle:
It wiped them all with just.one.roll…
I’m getting old. I wonder if I shared this story before? It’s one of my life’s greatest moments, that memory.November 13, 2021 at 10:35 pm #92326
Regarding the media “bigging up” Catholicism’s institutional sexual child abuse: saying that is like saying the media is picking on Epstein’s Ghost and the Lolita Express club. Major class action lawsuits from former victims are kind of big news. Hard to ignore.

“On November 1st, the Rabbinical Court officially decreed that the mRNA COVID shot is “absolutely forbidden” for children, adolescents, young men & women.”
This seems like a huge deal to me but I have only found one source for this info ( Sarah Westall). Everyone else seems to be using this source. Searched CNN, FOX, fact check, etc. No corroboration whatsoever.
If I’m Jewish and looking for a religious exemption doesn’t this proclamation just about lock it in?
Do you have other sources?November 13, 2021 at 11:19 pm #92328

The thin blue condom:
“Over the years I would see it all,” former Seattle police chief Norm Stamper wrote in his book, “Breaking Rank.” He described cases in which cops fondled prisoners, made false traffic stops of attractive women, traded sexual favors for freedom, had sex with teenagers and raped children. “Sexual predation by police officers happens far more often than people in the business are willing to admit.”
It’s far more prevelent indeed, and a very fine and thin blue line.
One of the most honest and brave cops I know of, Tony Bamonte (google the name and you’ll discover a rare hero) met his first wife by falsely pulling her over for a phony traffic citation. iIs intentions weren’t predatory, just opportunistic; he married her and I believe they’re still married decades later. But you can see how powerful the effect of a badge can be on a man.

fwiw, ctbarnum, the internet has in my experience entered another round of function disintegration like I saw about a year ago. Then, it seemed to be partly deliberate: overhauling search algorithms for censorship purposes, things like that. This time, it’s sheer fuck-up. I use a two-year old version of whatever swillware that Microsoft sold at the time I use duck duck go over chrome.
Just now, my gmail told me why an email I received from someone here was in the Spam folder… except it wasn’t. Came through straight-ahead. FB gets clunier by the day.
Along with the supply chain issues of microcips etc., I note that reduction of skilled staff is also a supply chain issue.

I haven’t followed Charles Hugh Mith much of late. Revisiting, I see this:
And read this: “Goldman Stunned By The Record $2.6 Trillion In Option Notional Traded Last Friday” headline and this here excerpt: “Summarizing Rubner’s findings, this is the punchline behind the staggering numbers: single stock option notional (140%) now exceeds single stock shares notional, 72% of options traded have an expiry of two-weeks or less (think 2-3-4 days), and activity on the message boards is as high as it has been all year.”

Looking at images of things like living crabs being milked of their blood reminds of the passage in Genesis where God said (this is one of the most detailed and nuanced transl;ations): “Then the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive and remain with man forever, because he is indeed flesh [sinful, corrupt—given over to sensual appetites]; nevertheless his days shall yet be a hundred and twenty years.”
It’s funny. If I really believed that TPTB were working on culling humanity, I’d probably applaud them. We’re a nasty lot and so in love with ourselves that we think that having dominion over the ecosphere, i.e., being Terra’s de facto Apex Predator, means we can do anything we like to animals. Culling us would be a blessing to life on earth.
But I highly doubt that TPTB have that level of moral awareness.Most everyone, not just TPTB, in human dominion more than not and are happy to shudder once at footage of slaughterhouse operations or laboratory torture, then look away; or if they forswear involvement in this industrialized carnage, blindly go vegetarina<>vegan without looking to see how that really works, as if destroying habitat for homes and farmland doesn’t destroy life directly and place many animals in dire refugee straits that often result in cannibalism including eating their own young.
I can see the Soroses and Gates of this world letting us die as a result of their process for getting rich, sure. They’ll do that. They are both callous and stupid enough to not care about the cows on whose milk they depend. COws ike us who in turn don’t care about the genuine cows whose milkwe take for granted other than grumbing about price.
But TPTB culling us in order to make the world a better place, if only for their, let’s say, “bloodlines”? Nah, I can’t see it. Making the world a better place is not what they do, even for themselves. Feeding their various addictions including miserly hoarding is what they do. Since we (human beings in general) are not much less deranged than them, we generally envy them their wealth and view them as successful if evil.
I do not see this as success but a form of sickness I would not wish on anyone. It makes me think of a concept from my Mormon upbringing called Sons of Perdition (SoP). Description follows:
“According to LDS Church theology, there are two classes of persons who will become sons of perdition:
1: “The pre-mortal spirit followers of Satan. It is taught that, in the pre-mortal life, they chose to follow a plan proposed by Satan, rather than that presented by God the Father (Heavenly Father). Jesus the Christ chose to follow Heavenly Father’s plan (which included moral agency), volunteered to atone for the sins of all as a part of this plan/become the Savior of all, and the glory would go to the Father. Satan rejected Heavenly Father’s plan and proposed his own, wanting to force all to choose the right, return to the Father, and the glory would all be Satan’s. Thus ensued the War in Heaven, which resulted in Satan and his followers being cast out of heaven and denied the opportunity of receiving a physical body due to rebellion against God the Father.
2: “Those in mortal life who “deny the Holy Ghost,” which is generally interpreted as rejecting and denying Christ after receiving a personal witness and a “perfect knowledge” of Jesus.”
#2 is mostly gibberish to me but #1 fits in with all kinds of ancient history, history overall, and current events especially.
My take on religious metaphysics like this is, well, mine: if there is a salvation in an afterlife, with Jesus as Redeemer etc. etc., the forgiveness and cleansing of sin the Bible speaks of is simply our ability to live with ourselves after, as countless Near Death Experiences describe, experiencing a Total Life Review, a kind of rapid holistically detailed gestaltic memory of one’s life. (In this personal theology, Jeebus saves our souls by extroardinary powers of compassion wherein brand-name Xtian tropes like “Trust in Jesus” mean Jesus saying, as we watch the horros we’ve allowed, “Trust me. I’ve seen worse. Everyone who lives on earth is mostly a miserable SOB; it comes with living in a Fallen Earth. Believe me.”
We rail against bloodthirsty elites for viewing themselves as above us mere proles, but we do the same thing regarding all non-human life except a few chosen pet species that we indulge as emotional slaves to help us feel remotely still mammalian as we focus on mindless and often violent virtual realities to distract us from the fact that we have become like how we treat the animals: enslaved beasts of burden and laboratory test animals.
A people who will let animals experience what we do daily, in order to make vaccines and so forth, deserves to be used as guinea pigs for elite medical profiteering, and to be culled. Consider culling euthanasia for humanity.
Like Isaac Singer said, “For the animals, every day is Treblinka.”
Or as Leonard Cohen said: “Nothing in this human realm is meant to work. So once you can deeply appreciate that…the mind of compassion grows if you understand that everybody’s up against it.”
And as Anthony sings in my fave Cohen song:
If it be your will, that I speak no more
And my voice be still, as it was before
I will speak no more, I shall abide until
I am spoken for, if it be your will
If it be your will, that a voice be true
From this broken hill, I will sing to you
From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will, to let me sing
From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will, to let me sing
If it be your will, if there is a choice
Let the rivers fill, let the hills rejoice
Let your mercy spill
On all these burning hearts in Hell
If it be your will, to make us well
And draw us near and bind us tight
All your children here, in their rags of light
In our rags of light, all dressed to kill
And end this night, if it be your will
If it be your will
I care about covidiocy from compassion, not an outraged sense of justice. There is no justice on earth, and we deserve it least of all its species that I know of. But so it is and so it goes, and I put in my time in this prison and try to be less depraved and more kind today than I was yesterday — and hope I can forgive myself when I am called to answer for my part.

At an A and the Johnsons concert, he asked for requests. A bunch of people asked him to sing “If it be your will” and he refused. He only wanted to sing his own music. (But he had already covered all of his own recorded songs!)

Polder, what I meant is that if the Pope spoke out against the vaxxes he would be marginalised, dissed, condemned, de-throned or ? worse.
He would be branded as opposed to modern science, against ‘protecting’ ppl, the weak, the poor, the ill. Being against ‘solidarity’, opposed to the teachings of Christ (as I have heard in Switz.) Going against the jab > not an option.
As far as I can see, for now, those resisting the jab (where I live) are not Catholics. Nor any other religion.
