On the Objective Reality
of God

Objective Reality versus Subjective Empiricism, which holds that Reality is subject to Human Perception.

Vic Biorseth, OWM; Saturday, January 11, 2014
http://www.CatholicAmericanThinker.com

Believe it or not, when we talk about Absolute Truth and "Perceived" Truth, we are talking about God.  Even if we don't believe in God.  When we discuss Moral Absolutes and Moral Relativism, we are, again, talking about God.  Whenever we are talking or thinking about Reality, whether we want to admit it to ourselves or not, we are talking or thinking about God. 

Definition of Objective Truth:  That which is.  Reality.  Existence. 

Again, as we have said before, Objective Truth is absolutely independent of the human mind.  What we think about it, how we think about it, whether we think about it or not, it continues to exist, unchanged and unaffected, and it continues to be absolutely independent of whatever we may or may not think about it, or whatever we may try to do about it.  It remains unchanged. 

And, Subjective Truth, or Subjective Reality is that reality which we "perceive" to be "true" based on our opinions, psychology, education, emotions, experiences, influence of others and even our mood of the moment.  These days, Subjective Truth is more and more aligned with politics and political agendas than with studied perceptions.  When that happens, Subjective Truth morphs into purposeful lies with a goal of deception regarding actual reality, told for what is felt to be good cause.  More on that later. 

Before the errors of Modernism and Post-Modernism poisoned the well, so to speak, men of science tried to reconcile subjective reality with objective reality through the Scientific Method.  It went like this:

  • A hypothesis is developed describing a "truth."
  • The owner/author of the hypothesis performs experiments and gathers observed, empirical, mathematical and any other scientific evidences "proving" the hypothesis.
  • The already tested and "proved" hypothesis describing a "truth" is published and presented for independent peer review.  Included are all experiments and evidences, with elaborate descriptions of laboratory(s), equipment and methods.  
  • Acting completely independently, using the same and or any other methods, other men of science perform rigorous examinations, experiments and studies to prove or disprove the hypothesis.  It may be "proved" many times; if it disproved even once, it is discarded as a flawed hypothesis. 
  • If it is disproved, the author may take it back, correct it, modify it, reprove it and resubmit it at a later date. 
  • If it ultimately enjoys unanimous approval of a very large number completely independent laboratories and testers, it may then be elevated from a mere hypothesis to the lofty level of a Scientific Theory.  
  • After many decades or even centuries of multiple vigorous proofs and no disproofs, it may be elevated again, to become a Scientific Law

Until now, in this website we have spoken mostly about the Scientific Method in areas where it has not been applied, such as Darwin's theory describing the Origin of Species, Freud's silly theories describing the Subconscious Mind, and Marx's preposterous theories on Economics and Social Orders.  Obviously, by the time of the major acceptance of these three major "theories" science itself had gone way off the tracks.  We discussed that in the Scientism pages. 

Maybe it's time to back up and look at the bigger picture again.  Let's go back to before America, before the Reformation, before the Enlightenment, and before Modernism.  Let's go back even before Jesus Christ and the birth of His Church. 

[13] Then Moses said to God, "If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, `The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, `What is his name?' what shall I say to them?"
[14] God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And he said, "Say this to the people of Israel, `I AM has sent me to you.'" --Exod 3:13-14

Indicating that God is the only thing that simply IS.  Everything else including us, is a creature - that is, created.  Brought into being. 

Now, if you don't believe in God, that's fine; we have freedom of religion around here.  Don't even waste your time reading any farther; you're obviously in the wrong Website.  We have discussed, unto death, the existence of God question in Faith Versus Atheism, and in Truth versus Evil, and in Why believe in God?, and probably a bunch of other places.  I'm not going to repeat all those good arguments again here.  From here on, we will just assume that God is what He said He is: the center and font of all Objective Truth = Reality = what IS.  (John 14:6)

Keeping that in mind, and coming back to the present day, we need to remind ourselves of the smaller Truths that flow from the big one of God.  They have to do with His Will, which was revealed to us by His Son and His Son's chosen Apostles.  These are the Truths that give our lives purpose and direction.  As discussed in more detail in the Ethos page, the first few Commandments of God, given to Moses, pertained to man's relationship with God, or our Faith.  The rest of the Commandments of God, given to Moses, pertained to man's relationship with his fellow man, or our morality

Faith and Morals are the two areas of life on which the Church speaks Infallibly, out of the Divine Revelation of God, with the aid of the Holy Ghost. 

Note:  The Church speaks infallibly only on matters pertaining to the unchanged Sacred Deposit of Faith.  Those of you who are so upset that I spoke publicly about  Pope Francis' Marxist leanings in the Evangelizing for Communism page need to recognize neither civil government nor global political and economic organization are present in the Sacred Deposit of Faith.  It is a "fuzzy" area, because, while not in the Sacred Deposit, redistribution of private property in favor of forced collective or community property is a "moral" issue, and the Pope speaks authoritatively on issues of faith and morals.  I say, in this case, he speaks not with infallibility. 

If God is an unchangeable objective reality, then so is His Revelation to man.  What He says about Himself and about us, and about our relationship, is objectively true.  It does not change.  It is the Law of God, and it is the Law of Nature, issued by the Divine Author of Nature. 

What this means is that the rules concerning what is right and what is wrong do not change.  For anyone.  Ever. 

To hold that what is right or wrong for one person may not be right or wrong for another person is known as Moral Relativism, which is nothing less than an exercise in Variable Reality.  Denial of an objective truth is, at its root, either a rejection of God's Word or a denial of His existence. 

Morality is the same for everyone, everywhere on earth.  There are three major breaks in man's acceptance of Revealed Morality.

  1. Everyone has not heard the Divine Revelation yet. 
  2. From the beginning, there have been heretics and dissenters who disregarded the Divine Revelation. 
  3. Since the Fracturing of Christianity we have seen growing numbers of new "religions", mostly based on the newly invented dogmas of Martin Luther (Sola Scriptura, Sola Fide, etc.) with increasingly modified subjective and therefore variable moral codes. 

But there is a fourth break, within the Church itself, which should worry us all more than the three above.  We have touched on it in Smoke of Satan, Lucifer and the CCHD, Communizer Dorothy Day, and the various pages linked under the Refuting Perverted Catholicism heading.  Pope Paul VI is credited with announcing that the Smoke of Satan had entered the Temple of God, as we showed in Corrupted Catholic Culture.  Now, from an email from one of you, we have become aware of the possible complicity of Paul VI in this "smoke".  The email linked to an interview with Dr. Alice Von Hildebrand regarding Paul VI and heresies he had been warned of.  The link is http://lesfemmes-thetruth.blogspot.com/2013/01/interview-with-alice-von-hildebrand.html.   The meat of the interview follows:

"Pope Paul VI and the Slippery Slope

(Note: TLM = The Latin Mass Magazine; AVH = Alice Von Hildebrand.)

TLM: In terms of the present crisis, when did you first perceive something was terribly wrong?

AVH: It was in February 1965. I was taking a sabbatical year in Florence. My husband was reading a theological journal, and suddenly I heard him burst into tears. I ran to him, fearful that his heart condition had suddenly caused him pain. I asked him if he was all right. He told me that the article that he had been reading had provided him with the certain insight that the devil had entered the Church. Remember, my husband was the first prominent German to speak out publicly against Hitler and the Nazis. His insights were always prescient.

TLM: Did your husband think that the decline in a sense of the supernatural began around that time [1920s -- from an earlier question], and if so, how did he explain it?

AVH: No, he believed that after Pius X’s condemnation of the heresy of Modernism [1907], its proponents merely went underground. He would say that they then took a much more subtle and practical approach. They spread doubt simply by raising questions about the great supernatural interventions throughout salvation history, such as the Virgin Birth and Our Lady’s perpetual virginity, as well as the Resurrection, and the Holy Eucharist. They knew that once faith – the foundation – totters, the liturgy and the moral teachings of the Church would follow suit. My husband entitled one of his books The Devastated Vineyard. After Vatican II, a tornado seemed to have hit the Church ...

Even the pagan Plato was open to a sense of the supernatural. He spoke of the weakness, frailty and cowardice often evidenced in human nature. He was asked by a critic to explain why he had such a low opinion of humanity. He replied that he was not denigrating man, only comparing him to God.

With the loss of a sense of the supernatural, there is a loss of the sense of a need for sacrifice today. The closer one comes to God, the greater should be one’s sense of sinfulness. The further one gets from God, as today, the more we hear the philosophy of the new age: “I’m OK, You’re OK.” This loss of the inclination to sacrifice has led to the obscuring of the Church’s redemptive mission. Where the Cross is downplayed, our need for redemption is given hardly a thought.

The aversion to sacrifice and redemption has assisted the secularization of the Church from within. We have been hearing for many years from priests and bishops about the need for the Church to adapt herself to the world. Great popes like St. Pius X said just the opposite: the world must adapt itself to the Church.

TLM: From our conversation throughout this afternoon, I must conclude that you don’t believe that the accelerating loss of the sense of the supernatural is an accident of history.

AVH: No, I do not. There have been two books published in Italy in recent years that confirm what my husband had been suspecting for some time; namely, that there has been a systematic infiltration of the Church by diabolical enemies for much of this century. My husband was a very sanguine man and optimistic by nature. During the last ten years of his life, however, I witnessed him many times in moments of great sorrow, and frequently repeating, “They have desecrated the Holy Bride of Christ.” He was referring to the “abomination of desolation” of which the prophet Daniel speaks.

TLM: This is a critical admission, Dr. von Hildebrand. Your husband had been called a twentieth-century Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius XII. If he felt so strongly, didn’t he have access to the Vatican to tell Pope Paul VI of his fears?

AVH: But he did! I shall never forget the private audience we had with Paul VI just before the end of the [Second Vatican] Council. It was on June 21, 1965. As soon as my husband started pleading with him to condemn the heresies that were rampant, the Pope interrupted him with the words, “Lo scriva, lo scriva.” (“Write it down.”) A few moments later, for the second time, my husband drew the gravity of the situation to the Pope’s attention. Same answer. His Holiness received us standing. It was clear that the Pope was feeling very uncomfortable. The audience lasted only a few minutes. Paul VI immediately gave a sign to his secretary, Fr. Capovilla, to bring us rosaries and medals. We then went back to Florence where my husband wrote a long document (unpublished today) that was delivered to Paul VI just the day before the last session of the Council. It was September of 1965. After reading my husband’s document, he said to my husband’s nephew, Dieter Sattler, who had become the German ambassador to the Holy See, that he had read the document carefully, but that “it was a bit harsh.” The reason was obvious: my husband had humbly requested a clear condemnation of heretical statements.

TLM: You realize, of course, Doctor, that as soon as you mention this idea of infiltration, there will be those who roll their eyes in exasperation and remark, “Not another conspiracy theory!”

AVH: I can only tell you what I know. It is a matter of public record, for instance, that Bella Dodd, the ex-Communist who reconverted to the Church, openly spoke of the Communist Party’s deliberate infiltration of agents into the seminaries. She told my husband and me that when she was an active party member, she had dealt with no fewer than four cardinals within the Vatican “who were working for us.”

Many a time I have heard Americans say that Europeans “smell conspiracy wherever they go.” But from the beginning, the Evil One has “conspired” against the Church – and has always aimed in particular at destroying the Mass and sapping belief in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. That some people are tempted to blow this undeniable fact out of proportion is no reason for denying its reality. On the other hand, I, European born, am tempted to say that many Americans are naïve; living in a country that has been blessed by peace, and knowing little about history, they are more likely than Europeans (whose history is a tumultuous one) to fall prey to illusions ... Judas had played his hand so artfully that no one suspected him, for a cunning conspirator knows how to cover his tracks with a show of orthodoxy.

TLM: Do the two books by the Italian priest you mentioned before the interview contain documentation that would provide evidence of this infiltration?

AVH: The two books I mentioned were published in 1998 and 2000 by an Italian priest, Don Luigi Villa of the diocese of Brescia, who at the request of Padre Pio has devoted many years of his life to the investigation of the possible infiltration of both Freemasons and Communists into the Church. My husband and I met Don Villa in the sixties. He claims that he does not make any statement that he cannot substantiate. When Paulo Sesto Beato? (1998) was published the book was sent to every single Italian bishop. None of them acknowledged receipt; none challenged any of Don Villa’s claims.

In this book, he relates something that no ecclesiastical authority has refuted or asked to be retracted – even though he names particular personalities in regard to the incident. It pertains to the rift between Pope Pius XII and the then Bishop Montini (the future Paul VI) who was his Undersecretary of State. Pius XII, conscious of the threat of Communism, which in the aftermath of World War II was dominating nearly half of Europe, had prohibited the Vatican staff from dealing with Moscow. To his dismay, he was informed one day through the Bishop of Up[p]sala (Sweden) that his strict order had been contravened. The Pope resisted giving credence to this rumor until he was given incontrovertible evidence that Montini had been corresponding with various Soviet agencies. Meanwhile, Pope Pius XII (as had Pius XI) had been sending priests clandestinely into Russia to give comfort to Catholics behind the Iron Curtain. Every one of them had been systematically arrested, tortured, and either executed or sent to the gulag. Eventually a Vatican mole was discovered: Alighiero Tondi, S.J., who was a close advisor to Montini. Tondi was an agent working for Stalin whose mission was to keep Moscow informed about initiatives such as the sending of priests into the Soviet Union.

Add to this Pope Paul’s treatment of Cardinal Mindszenty. Against his will, Mindszenty was ordered by the Vatican to leave Budapest. As most everyone knows, he had escaped the Communists and sought refuge in the American embassy compound. The Pope had given him his solemn promise that he would remain primate of Hungary as long as he lived. When the Cardinal (who had been tortured by the Communists) arrived in Rome, Paul VI embraced him warmly, but then sent him into exile in Vienna. Shortly afterwards, this holy prelate was informed that he had been demoted, and had been replaced by someone more acceptable to the Hungarian Communist government. More puzzling, and tragically sad, is the fact that when Mindszenty died, no Church representative was present at his burial.

Another of Don Villa’s illustrations of infiltration is one related to him by Cardinal Gagnon. Paul VI had asked Gagnon to head an investigation concerning the infiltration of the Church by powerful enemies. Cardinal Gagnon (at that time an Archbishop) accepted this unpleasant task, and compiled a long dossier, rich in worrisome facts. When the work was completed, he requested an audience with Pope Paul in order to deliver personally the manuscript to the Pontiff. This request for a meeting was denied. The Pope sent word that the document should be placed in the offices of the Congregation for the Clergy, specifically in a safe with a double lock. This was done, but the very next day the safe deposit box was broken and the manuscript mysteriously disappeared. The usual policy of the Vatican is to make sure that news of such incidents never sees the light of day. Nevertheless, this theft was reported even in L’Osservatore Romano (perhaps under pressure because it had been reported in the secular press). Cardinal Gagnon, of course, had a copy, and once again asked the Pope for a private audience. Once again his request was denied. He then decided to leave Rome and return to his homeland in Canada. Later, he was called back to Rome by Pope John Paul II and made a cardinal.

TLM: Why did Don Villa write these works singling out Paul VI for criticism?

AVH: Don Villa reluctantly decided to publish the books to which I have alluded. But when several bishops pushed for the beatification of Paul VI, this priest perceived it as a clarion call to print the information he had gathered through the years. In so doing, he was following the guidelines of a Roman Congregation, informing the faithful that it was their duty as members of the Church to relay to the Congregation any information that might militate against the candidate’s qualifications for beatification.

Considering the tumultuous pontificate of Paul VI, and the confusing signals he was giving, e.g.: speaking about the “smoke of Satan that had entered the Church,” yet refusing to condemn heresies officially; his promulgation of Humanae Vitae (the glory of his pontificate), yet his careful avoidance of proclaiming it ex cathedra [infallible doctrine]; delivering his Credo of the People of God in Piazza San Pietro in 1968, and once again failing to declare it binding on all Catholics; disobeying the strict orders of Pius XII to have no contact with Moscow, and appeasing the Hungarian Communist government by reneging on the solemn promise he had made to Cardinal Mindszenty; his treatment of holy Cardinal Slipyj, who had spent seventeen years in a Gulag, only to be made a virtual prisoner in the Vatican by Paul VI; and finally asking Archbishop Gagnon to investigate possible infiltration in the Vatican, only to refuse him an audience when his work was completed – all these speak strongly against the beatification of Paolo VI, dubbed in Rome, “Paolo Sesto, Mesto” (Paul VI, the sad one) ...

God alone is the judge of Paul VI. But it cannot be denied that his pontificate was a very complex and tragic one. It was under him that, in the course of fifteen years, more changes were introduced in the Church than in all preceding centuries combined. What is worrisome is that when we read the testimony of ex-Communists like Bella Dodd, and study Freemasonic documents (dating from the nineteenth century, and usually penned by fallen-away priests like Paul Roca), we can see that, to a large extent, their agenda has been carried out: the exodus of priests and nuns after Vatican II, dissenting theologians not censured, feminism, the pressure put on Rome to abolish priestly celibacy, immorality in the clergy, blasphemous liturgies (see the article by David Hart in First Things, April 2001, “The Future of the Papacy”), the radical changes that have been introduced into the sacred liturgy (see Cardinal Ratzinger’s book Milestones, pp. 126 and 148, Ignatius Press), and a misleading ecumenism. Only a blind person could deny that many of the Enemy’s plans have been perfectly carried out.

One should not forget that the world was shocked at what Hitler did. People like my husband, however, actually read what he had said in Mein Kampf. The plan was there. The world simply chose not to believe it.

But grave as the situation is, no committed Catholic can forget that Christ has promised that He will remain with His Church to the very end of the world. We should meditate on the scene related in the Gospel when the apostles’ boat was battered by a fierce storm. Christ was sleeping! His terrified followers woke Him up: He said one word, and there was a great calm. “O ye of little faith!” ...

TLM: So you see the only scenario for a solution to the present crisis as the renewal of a striving for sanctity?

AVH: We should not forget that we are fighting not only against flesh and blood, but against “powers and principalities.” This should elicit sufficient dread in us to make us strive more than ever for holiness, and to pray fervently that the Holy Bride of Christ, who is right now at Calvary, comes out of this fearful crisis more radiant than ever."

The only point I take exception to is Dr. Hildebrand's assertion that Paul VI should have spoken "ex cathedra" in his Humanae Vitae condemnation of artificial contraception.  In my opinion, he didn't need to.  His encyclical, like the preceding Casti Connubii of Pius XI, was a definitive statement on a matter of faith and morals, by a Pope, consistent with unchanged Revelation and consistent Tradition of the Church, published to the whole world, declaring contraception to be gravely sinful.  As such, it was an infallible and irreformable statement under the Ordinary Magisterium of the Church.  That's my reading of both Casti Connubii and Humanae Vitae. 

That point aside, this interview raises anew old, long forgotten questions in our minds about the true intentions of Paul VI, who was the author of the Novus Ordo Mass.  Why?  (See the Changes in Liturgy page.)  All that truly radical liturgical interruption; all those sudden, sudden changes; All those new altars springing up everywhere, overnight; even after all these years, even after having embraced the New Mass, even after participating for decades, we still don't understand the why of it.  We never heard any good explanation of why it all had to happen in the first place

Getting back to the Objective Reality versus Subjective Empiricism dichotomy:  We are all better prepared to work toward getting a derailed train back on the tracks after having spent some time examining the damage and properly preparing the significant engineering task that is before us.  We are surveying the damage all around us, and at the root of it all, stands Untruth.

Direct opposition to Objective Reality. 

This Website is produced by an ordinary Catholic layman for fellow ordinary Catholic laymen, and by an ordinary American citizen for fellow ordinary American citizens.  Anywhere else on earth, that might mean that we are pretty close to helpless in all of these matters.  But here in this land, and now, at least unless and until Obamunism succeeds in its Total Revolution, we remain the Sovereign Citizens of America here, and we have much to say about everything.  Whether the sitting government likes it or not. 

The really major lies - lies that derail culture - all spawned more lies, all leading, eventually, to the same place:  Nonsense.  The absolute loss of natural common sense.  The lack of common purpose and direction, the death of Ethos, and the advent of Cultural Insanity

History's major liars, who's long-lasting lies misled millions, are legion; we have spoken of a few of them in these pages.  Among them are, of course, Luther and Munzer, Voltaire, Charles Darwin, Thomas Henry Huxley, Sigmund Freud, Carl Gustav Jung, Alfred Kinsey, Karl MarxRichard Dawkins and Saul Alinsky

In the aftermath of the Reformation and the splitting of Christianity into denominations ruled by secular rulers, thanks to Martin Luther's doctrine of Cujus region, ejus rligio (Whoever’s reign, his religion).  That meant a radical combination of Church and State, in which kings and nobles were in absolute charge of religion in their domains.  Of course, what followed was religious persecution on a grand scale, all over Europe and the British Isles. 

It was the very reason America came to be.  Founded and Constituted as a "Christian" nation, under a "general" Christianity described by Benjamin Franklin as "our American religion", following the Judeo-Christian Morality common to Catholicism and all Denominations of Protestantism, I submit that the new nation of America presented the last best hope for Catholic Ecumenism among Christian denominations. 

Here, all were free to worship, and to evangelize, and to discuss, all they wanted to.  This was true freedom; freedom of as well as from religion.  If a man wanted to go to hell, he was perfectly free to do so; and if he wanted to try his best to convince others of the truth of his religion, he was perfectly free to do that.  True salvation is dependent upon a free will choice, after all.  No one can be dragged, kicking and screaming against his will, into heaven. 

If you want to study how a single lie gives birth to other lies, and how each of those lies gives birth to multiple other lies, and on, and on, you need look no further than the original lie, and the long progression of lies it spawned, pertaining to the non-sinfulness, and then the goodness, and then the acceptability, and then the utility and usefulness, and then the need, and then even the legal right, and then even the moral requirement, to practice mortal sin of artificial contraception

Historically speaking, this notion is brand new.  It didn't even exist until 1930; before then, no one would even think of such an obviously unnatural and immoral thing.  You can go to the Contraception page to read the condemnations of it by such historic personages as:

  1. Martin Luther
  2. John Calvin
  3. John Wesley
  4. Theodore Roosevelt, our first American President who was a Marxist of the Progressive persuasion
  5. Sigmund Freud, who actually defined sexual perversion as any pursuit of sexual gratification that in any way unnaturally restricted or precluded the possibility of procreation
  6. Mahatma Gandhi

Contraception was universally condemned, everywhere, by everyone, of every faith.  No exceptions.  Now, only Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy hold the line against it.  And, as we have seen elsewhere in this Website, we have thundering herds of American Catholic Bishops who either support artificial contraception, or who just stand around with their thumbs up their butts while open political champions of contraception are on public parade right in front of their noses, even at their own Communion rails. 

Note the common thread that runs through the "root lies" as well as all the sub-lies that spring up out of them.  Promoters of each lie will profess that opponents of the lie are trying to impose their will on them, while, in actual fact, the liars are seeking to impose their lie on all of society, even against the will of society.  They falsely claim to champion "freedom" even as they work to restrict it.  And as the lies advance, we all become less free. 

Contraception itself, for instance, is not among the limited and enumerated areas open for legislation, adjudication and enforcement of federal law, under the Constitution.  That makes it a local subject, to be handled in accordance with local community standards.  Constitutionally, artificial contraception is none of the business of the American federal government. 

But that's not good enough for the liars. 

They want their lie of the moment to become federal law, affecting everyone, to either be legislated by a corrupted Congress, created through executive action by a corrupted Executive, or adjudicated into a legal precedent by corrupted judges or justices. 

So it is with lie after lie after lie.  If it isn't among the limited and enumerated powers of the government listed in the American Constitution, it isn't even supposed to be addressed by the American government; yet we see all the sub-lies that sprang from the Contraception lie being pushed in legislation, enforcement and litigation, always, always at the federal level.  Always in opposition to some local or state existing standard of behavior.  Always to impose the will of a minority on an unwilling majority.  Always in the name of "freedom".  Always in the name of "civil rights". 

Examples:  Abortion.  The "civil right" of someone to choose to abort someone.   The "civil right" of someone to be an open sexual pervert.  The "civil right" of someone to marry a same sex partner.  If you don't think these abominations, and more, all sprang forth from general social acceptance of artificial contraception, then you have not been paying attention. 

The whole so-called sexual revolution and the Free Love movement were born of social acceptance followed by social promotion of artificial contraception. 

Contraception was supposed to cut down on unwanted pregnancies;  instead, it increased them.  Radically.   So many new unwanted pregnancies came to be that abortion simply became another contraceptive method.  Every single thing proponents of the lie predicted turned out to be false.  Illicit sex became rampant, because of contraception's false promise of eliminating consequences.  It increased consequences.  It increased what it promised to reduce, always, including especially venereal diseases.

Just a few of the things contraception promised to reduce, but that contraception increased, include:

  1. Unwanted pregnancies
  2. Single parent "familiies"
  3. Abused women
  4. Abused children
  5. Abortion
  6. Fatherless children
  7. Broken marriages
  8. Marriages
  9. Venereal disease infection
  10. Numbers of new venereal diseases

The numbers of all of these things went up, not down. 

Contraception was held to reduce, among other things, the number of abortions.   But abortions went up, not down.  It was a lie. 

Abortion was supposed to reduce the number of bastard children; but since abortion has been un-Constitutionally legalized, the numbers of bastard children have radically increased, rather than going down. 

It was the same with everything.  Unwed motherhood.  Child abuse.  Woman abuse.  Disease.  All of these unwanted consequences of illicit sex that the liars promised would be eliminated, were accelerated. 

The only thing that increased under all these false promises was the causative activity of the unwanted consequences, which was and is, illicit sex outside of marriage, and perverted sex within marriage.  That radically increased, right along with it's natural consequences. 

No one seems smart enough to see it.  You can't fool mother nature. 

But that ain't all, not be a long shot.  Mostly under the impetus of the false, Marxist-dominated strain of thought that, simultaneously, almost deifies material science and attacks religious faith, all sorts of other lies regarding nature are all aimed at growing government itself and growing government power, to properly deal with major problems that do not even exist

This is how error, influenced by evil, can morph into purposeful lie, and grow into a major national and international hoax, and can even becomes a massive global murderous fraud, resulting in unwarranted death of innocent human beings.  All to grow government power and increase citizen subservience and dependence on government. 

Every error can commandeered as a lie; every lie can be magnified. 

Consider the government-invented HIV=AIDS=DEATH fraud, in which nearly the whole world is fooled into believing that there is such a thing as infectious AIDS.  But there is no such thing, and empirical evidences proving infectious AIDS simply do not exist.  HIV is infectious, sure enough; but HIV is merely a perfectly harmless retrovirus with no symptoms, and, again, empirical evidences proving a causative linkage between HIV and AIDS simply do not exist. 

But America and the world have been terrorized into creating huge government programs, and creating or growing government bureaucracies to run them, and to expend untold billions upon billions of tax dollars to fight an infectious disease that does not exist.  What's worse is that untold numbers of HIV "patients" have been treated, unto death, with deadly bone-marrow toxins such as AZT, which destroy the immune system and cause people to waste away and die just as if they had AIDS, when all they ever had was HIV, which has no symptoms, and therefor is not even an illness

We have the government created an government sponsored Global Warming Hoax, which has been grown and blown into a gigantic, global, international criminal fraud.  The American government has even recruited news media TV and radio Weather Announcers into the act, to continuously propagandize and advance the lie of it.  The ends justify the means.  We have the Ozone-Hole fraud, the Acid Rain fraud, the fear of Nuclear Melt-Down fraud, and others in the Eco-Nazi Movement program. 

If you think this is all, just work your way through the Scientism pages

Which brings us, finally, to the SLIMC1 , which, true to it's overwhelmingly Marxist slant, seldom met a government-growing lie it could not support, promote and magnify.   Again, for them, the ends justify the means.

As most of you know, I detest the mainstream news media, and I avoid it at all costs.  I avoid network news, and I avoid cable news, with the occasional exception of FOX news.  And I have taken issue with the FOX network in these Webpages, notably with Neil Cavuto and with Bill O'Reilly.  There is considerably more than a detectable thread of moral relativism running through FOX.  And FOX is the best of them all.  And the fact that FOX is the best should tell you that we are in very serious trouble, as a nation. 

Take a look at the video at http://www.churchmilitant.tv/daily/?today=2014-01-09  for how FOX News has "come out" in favor of sodomy, and now promotes sodomy throughout our culture.  Then watch the video at http://www.churchmilitant.tv/dispatches/foxcomesout/ for the details of how Megyn Kelly, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly now publicly champion and defend such things as homosexual marriage, abortion, and, in Bill's case, whatever the hell floats your boat. 

This is moral relativism on steroids.  Again, its not enough that the sinner be tolerated; we, the majority, must recognize the good of the sin, and stop calling it sin or condemning it in any way.  They don't even see that it is they who are intolerant of us, and they who are publicly arguing against us, and for the sins.  Against nature, and for perversion.  Against right, and for wrong. 

God help us. 

Again, FOX is as close as you can come to conservative news; for the worst, see the Mainstream Media pages.  I don't know about you, but I will never forget how such so-called "conservative" luminaries as Anne Coulter, Charles Krauthammer, Neal Boortz and others, whether independent or working with FOX, publicly opposed Sarah Palin, Christine O'Donnell and other Tea Party candidates in favor of pro-Marxism, pro-abortion, pro-sodomy, pro-atheism - in other words, pro-Democrat opponents.  

For me, all that's left is conservative talk radio, and Glenn Beck's TV network.  I have been taken to task in these pages for supporting Beck, a Mormon, over Hannity, a Catholic.  Perhaps, if you've watched the videos above, now you know why.  Hannity is nothing but another Lip Service Catholic, barely better in his Catholic act than Nancy Pelosi.  Beck may be a Mormon, but at least he believes what he professes, with great passion.  Sincerely wrong, yes, but truly sincere, and holding fast to his principles, and a more honest and objective seeker of truth than Hannity. 

The most "Catholic" of them all may be the non-Catholic Rush Limbaugh.  I don't even know what his faith is, but you can be pretty sure it is some variety of Christian.  I never heard him claim a religious affiliation.  I know he has had multiple marriages, and I know he publicly promotes his friend Elton John, but neither does he claim to be a practicing Catholic, or anything else, to my knowledge.   Rush may be the most thoroughly decent hugely successful popular host of any talk show, or any show, radio or TV.  Here I use the term decent as it has been understood throughout the long history of Western Civilization. 

Meanwhile, all of the Marxocrat Party, all of the Republicrat Party, all of the news media, including even FOX news, just about all popular "Conservative" commentators, have all given in to the greatest falsehood of all, that:

Lucifer has won the contest, and abortion, sodomy, contraception, irreligion, anti-religion, all, either are or should be the law of the land, and anyone who opposes that situation is doomed to lose any political contest they enter. 

Thus have they politically and socially aligned themselves with the enemy of Christianity, and thus have they chosen to align themselves with evil, to advance the cause against the majority of the American citizenry.  They actually, actively oppose the Tea Party and all real Conservatives, and, at the root, Christianity itself

So be it. 

O'Reilly in particular, probably just a more outspoken representative of all the rest, has clearly abandoned the long established ethos of America, and adopted the ethos of BMDFP10 and the whole Marxocrat Party.

It is high time for us ordinary folk to do what it takes to move us to a No Party America.  We are the overwhelming majority.  We - the American people - need to start Fixing it All.  Through actionFaith Alone is just not enough.  It is time to take it to the enemy, and get this over with. 

Suit up. 

If you find the way to please God, you will live forever.

Vic,

You refer to "the mortal sin of contraception" but the Bible nowhere mentions mortal sin.  You imply that the mortal sinner will go to hell, but the Bible nowhere condemns anyone to hell.  Are you not taking a lot onto yourself, and making yourself everyone else's judge?

Fr. Roderic:

If your title is truly Father, you should know a lot better than to spout such falsehoods in public.  What seminary from hell did you attend?

Regarding mortal sin, consider this:

[16] If any one sees his brother committing what is not a mortal sin, he will ask, and God will give him life for those whose sin is not mortal. There is sin which is mortal; I do not say that one is to pray for that.--1 John 5:16

In the Bible, Jesus Christ, the Lord thy God, told you how we are all to be judged on the final day in Matthew 25, dividing us into sheep and goats, with the final lines:

[45] Then he will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.'
[46] And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." --Matt 25:45-46

Our Lord had some strong words for Judas Iscariot, the patron saint of all traitors and the icon of the art of deception and treachery.  I think it's a safe bet that Judas is in hell. 

[24] The Son of man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born." --Matt 26:24

[21] For the Son of man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born." --Mark 14:21

Then there are those who lead others into sin, like most of our Bishops, with particular emphasis on those who lead children into sin:

[6] but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. --Matt 18:6

[42] "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung round his neck and he were thrown into the sea. --Mark 9:42

[2] It would be better for him if a millstone were hung round his neck and he were cast into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin. --Luke 17:2

God is to be feared more than mere men, because His punishment is eternal: 

[28] And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. --Matt 10:28

[5] But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear him! --Luke 12:5

And then there were our Lord's stong words for the Pharisees (the Republicrats of their day) who opposed the Sadducees (the Marxocrats of their day) in their feigned piety covering their utter hypocrisy:

[15] Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you traverse sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves. --Matt 23:15

[33] You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell? --Matt 23:33

Even among the righteous, hell reaches out, through the world, to grab us:

[6] And the tongue is a fire. The tongue is an unrighteous world among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the cycle of nature, and set on fire by hell. --Jas 3:6

And even angels were cast into hell:

[4] For if God did not spare the angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of nether gloom to be kept until the judgment; --2 Pet 2:4

So don't stand there in public with your bare face hanging out and soften the message of ultimate judgment.

Vic

If I am reading you correctly, you are charging Megyn Kelly, Charles Krauthammer, Anne Coulter and others with opposing God or not believing in God.  Is that what you really mean to convey?

Yes. 

To oppose the objective reality of the Word of God is, at its root, to oppose the objective reality of God Himself.  They have socially, politically and religiously aligned themselves with the opponents of God, and set themselves against God.

Sandra:

Attacking or opposing someone who defends chastity and condemns homosexuality is directly opposing the will of God, as seen in His Revelation to man, protected down through the ages by His Church. 

Opposing any political candidate who is openly Christian, because she or he is openly Christian, or because they condemn such things as abortion, in favor of any opposing political candidate who is either anti-Christian, or, lukewarm enough in their faith to not even bring it up, is, again, directly opposing the revealed will of God, which is available to all who have any interest in learning what it is. 

Knowingly or otherwise, these people are supporting the goals of Lucifer.  They are opposing God.

Brother Vic,

Is it unreasonable to believe that a Pope would have doubt about the very existence of God? I think not. The Pope is mere man, and all men doubt. But doubt is possible only because God is not objective and therefore cannot be understood as objective reality. God can be understood only by inference, which is defined as the knowledge about what is unknown based on things that are known. And what is known is reality itself, and the reality of reason itself (by which we are able to use inference), and of course the reality of the historical Savior. Thomas Aquinas and his 5 Arguments who you cited cited in "Faith Versus Atheism" on 8/22/10, are inferential reasoning. But in addition to Aquinas, I think about the equally brilliant Pascal, who (like all men) also wrestled with the question of God's existence. In Penses he wrote:

“Let us examine this point, and let us say: ‘Either God is or he is not.’ But to which view shall we be inclined? Reason cannot decide this question. Infinite chaos separates us. At the far end of this infinite distance a coin is being spun which will come down heads or tails. How will you wager? Reason cannot make you choose either, reason cannot prove either wrong.

Do not then condemn as wrong those who have made a choice… ‘No, but I will condemn them for not having made this particular choice, but any choice, for although one calls heads and the other one are equally at fault, the fact is that they are both at fault: the right thing is not to wager at all.’

Yes, but you must wager. There is no choice, you are already committed. What will you choose then? Let us see: since a choice must be made, let us see which offers you the least interest. You have two things to lose: the true and the good: and two things to stake: your reason and your will, your knowledge and your happiness.”

And here is Pascal's Wager:

A. God exists (Christianity is true)
1. If I believe it and it turns out to be objectively true then I gain eternal happiness and lose nothing. 
2. If I do not believe it and it turns out to be objectively true then I lose everything (including happiness and pleasure).

B. God does not exist (Christianity is not true) 1. If I believe this and it is objectively true then I gain nothing and lose nothing.
2. If I do not believe this and it is objectively true then I gain nothing and lose nothing.

In other words, Pascal says that if Christianity is true then those who don’t believe have everything to lose. If Christianity is not true then in the end nothing is lost to the believer or unbeliever. But it is the unbeliever who has infinitely more to lose if he is wrong.

Semper Fidelis.

I think you are confusing "knowing" with "understanding". 

" ... But doubt is possible only because God is not objective and therefore cannot be understood as objective reality. God can be understood only by inference, which is defined as the knowledge about what is unknown based on things that are known. ... "

But God is indeed objective, and is the root source of all objective truth, and all that is.  It doesn't matter whether we understand God or not; He remains what He is.  In point of fact, He cannot be understood, in any human sense; but that does not mean that He cannot be Known

As an example, look at John 6, beginning at verse 30, for how Jesus described Himself as Eucharist.  Disciples murmured, and He didn't back down; he kept strengthening the message, and ordering them to eat His flesh and drink His blood.  This was very upsetting to the listeners, because they could not understand this; how could they?  But He persisted, even tying it to salvation itself, saying if you do not do this, you do not have eternal life. 

And many left Him, because they couldn't understand, and in their human, worldly pride, they needed to understand.  Then He issued the stinging challenge to the Apostles:  Will you, too, leave me? 

And Simon Peter answered, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life; and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God."

Note that Peter didn't say that he understood; he didn't understand.  He couldn't.  But he knew Who was speaking

It could be that in this life the creature can never hope to understand its creator, but that does not mean the creator does not exist

The questions raised about Paul VI involve his possible infection with the ideology of Communism or his being controlled by Communist ideologues.  It would seem that such a thing would only be possible, unless he were under some form of duress, if he had abandoned belief in Moral Absolutes, which would entail abandonment of Asolute Truth, which would mean abandonment of belief in God Himself. 

Re the famous Pascal's Wager, the most important lesson in that involves the related risk analysis part of it.  When you wager on something, you consider the odds.  In business, or in war, you had better also consider the possibility of catastrophic risk.  If the risk involves only profit, or expense, or the loss of a battle for a strategic advantage, you might take that risk.  But if the risk is absolutely catastrophic, then, no matter what the odds are, you should hesitate; if you are prudent, you will not take that risk. 

If you bet that God does not exist and He does not exist, you win, but you win nothing in particular. 

If you bet that God does exist and He does not exist, you lose, but you lose nothing in particular. 

If you bet that God exists and He does exist, then you win, and what you win is everlasting life in Heaven. 

If you bet that God does not exist and He does exist, then you lose, and you damn yourself to everlasting Hell. 

Which would be catastrophic. 

Regards,

Vic

That just doesn't make sense.  How can you "know" something you cannot see, feel or touch, without making inferences about it based on something real that you know?

You can know it by natural faith; the simple faith of a little child.  It is beyond the ability of the purely worldly, or the aloof, wise and learned who see themselves as the masters of all knowledge, or as potential masters of the world.

Hi Vic,

You are correct in that I had interchanged "knowledge" and "understanding". I did not proof read and edit before I mailed. Please allow me to replace all references to "understand" with "know".

Now, as Diane has indicated no one can know anything that one "cannot see, feel or touch, without making inferences about it based on something real that you know" by which she implies is via the senses. I believe Diane is correct, so I must stand by my argument.

Your response to her that one "can know it by natural faith; the simple faith of a little child" sounds very close to fideism, which is faith without knowledge. Fideism is not a bad thing, per se, but the problem is that in this world it cannot stand on its own. This is because fideism can be applied equally to Atheism or Buddhism, etc., etc.  And as Paul tells us Christianity stands apart as having historical evidence, specifically evidence of Christ's resurrection, without which Christianity collapses.

However, the very idea of God (without Jesus) can be argued and "proved" by using  "pure reason". This was accomplished through the works of Plato, Aristotle, and Aquinas. All these men (from what I understand) used inferential reasoning. An excellent and thoroughly entertaining book explaining this is "The Last Superstition" by Edward Feser. Dr. Feser is a Professor of Philosophy and was (briefly) an atheist, but has since turned back to Catholicism. I consider his book a "must read".

John:

My response to Diane assumed she had followed all that had gone before, which is to say, that she was familiar with the arguments put forth in Faith Vs. Atheism and was at least aware of the Revelation of God to man, through the Scripture and Tradition passed on to us by the Church that received it.  If she were totally ignorant of the Revelation of God it is doubtful that she would be commenting in these pages as frequently as she is. 

The revelation is given as a take-it-or-leave-it offering.  Once all the reasoning is done and all the evidences examined, and once the remaining possibilities are weighed against each other, a decision must be made.  That decision is easiest for a child, more difficult for an adult raised not in faith, and near impossible for the proud. 

The elite and effete modern intelligentsia, like many of the Pharisees in our Lord's day, are far too full of themselves and far too convinced of their own correctness and everyone else's  inferiority to accept anything other-worldly or non-empirical.  Only the open-minded and the truly honest can make the right choice. 

Maybe that's what He meant when He said many are called but few are chosen.

Vic

Agreed! And Dr. Fesner's book calls out by name the "elite and effete modern intelligentsia...(who)...are far too full of themselves and far too convinced of their own correctness and everyone else's  inferiority to accept anything other-worldly or non-empirical."  His conclusion is not "only the open-minded and the truly honest can make the right choice", but he shows convincingly that if one compares the reasoning of many (if not most) of the modern atheists to the reasoning of the classic philosophers, particularly Aristotle and Aquinas, one will discover that the modern view ultimately makes reason and morality impossible, while "the religious view enshrined in classical philosophical theism cannot fail to commend itself to every rational and morally decent human being who understands it...".

The problem is that they don't really reason; they just regurgitate what they have officially learned, and what they think they "know".  Many, many public school educated generations now have never learned critical thinking.  Same thing with many generations of Ivy League university graduates.  All they "know" is what their Leftist professors pumped them full of. 

I'm going into all that in more detail in a new webpage I'm working on, dealing with the Marxist Class Warfare Lies of "Social Justice" theology and secular philosophy.  It involves, quite literally, the institutionalization of envy, done in the name of "fairness".  It has infected clerics as well as politicians, and so, through Marxist-dominated education, it has soaked and is soaking into the whole of our American culture.  What it is slowly strangling is morality.  It is a cancer on our national ethos. 

I hope to finish it tonight if I don't get too tired, or tomorrow AM if I have time before I go to work.

I'm sorry but I think we should not think we are more Catholic than the pope. God is in control of the Church, it cannot teach error (indefectable) and the See of Rome in particular cannot lose the faith (infallible). These are official teachings of the Church rather than spooky private revelations.

In fact I would say that the more conservative or more progressive Catholics have a false method of knowing Church teaching. To them the Church is not the pillar of truth but the ideas in their heads. Kind of no different from Martin Luther. So if the magisterium teaches something they disagree with the magisterium is wrong, not them. What then is the purpose of a magisterium? Christ promised that Peter is a rock rather than a false prophet.. I believe God rather than myself.

ExSedevacantist:

This webpage and this whole website nowhere questions the Catholicity of any Pope, nor did it or does it anywhere challenge the Church's absolute magisterial authority to teach on faith, morals, original doctrine and theology from the protected Deposit of Faith. 

Subjects such as Marxism, and supporting or opposing Marxism ("more conservative or more progressive" as you put it) are maters of politics, not doctrine.  These are maters not found in the Revelation, and not subject to being infallibly taught by anyone. 

When a Pope, or a Council in union with a Pope, teaches on faith and morals, the teaching is protected by infallibility.  when a Pope, or a Council in union with a Pope, teaches on politics, that teaching is not protected by infallibility.  

Jesus nowhere called for any revolution against Rome, or any purely worldly and purely political New World Order to displace all other forms of civil government, whether by violence or by slow cultural infection. 

Nor did He authorize His Apostles to do any such thing. 

Regards,

Vic
