FLORMPORIF

Flagrant Liar Or Mindless Parrot Or Innocent Fool

Vic Biorseth, https://www.catholicamericanthinker.com

Whenever your mouse passes over or pauses on the sarcastic-editorial abbreviation FLORMPORIF13 , anywhere in the Catholic American Thinker website, the words Flagrant Liar, Or, Mindless Parrot, Or, Innocent Fool should appear in a little pop-up text box, so you don't need to actually click on it every time just to see what it means. Just put your mouse on it without clicking, and look at your little text box. (Use your browser's Back button to return.)

We all know what a Flagrant Liar is. A Mindless Parrot is one who, without hesitation and seemingly without thinking, just mindlessly parrots someone else’s false story. An Innocent Fool is one who gives limited or merely cursory thought to the false story, and who is quite gullible and naive. Bottom line, he he knows not whereof he speaks, but he continues to speak anyway.

What is lost in this process is critical thinking.

Critical Thinking involves a mental process that is highly disciplined and therefore requires most practitioners to be trained in it. This training is best begun in the formative years, but, as in all things, it is never to late to begin. It is a process of evaluating and analyzing a proposition or an argument that has been offered to the critical thinker, for criticism, as being true. There follows a process of reasoning, evaluation of the offered evidences, and reflection, always begun from a point of skepticism. A proper critique of the argument involves more than direct observation. Besides reasoning, cognitive ability and experience, proper critical thinking also involves intellectual values that go beyond the subject being examined.

Call it conscience, or ethos, or morality, or a value system, or whatever, there must be some fixed set of rules, boundaries and guidelines to assist the Critical Thinker is assessing an argument or a position. There must always be some limits beyond which we will not consciously go, in the interest of practicality and in the name of human decency and even of civilization itself.

No matter how technically advanced we ever become, we are all, individually and collectively, called to think about things. It is our human nature.

Test everything.

Language and Tone Statement

Please note the language and tone of this monitored Website. This is not the place to stack up vulgar one-liners and crude rejoinders.  While you may support, oppose or introduce any position or argument, submissions must meet our standards of logical rigor and civil discourse.  We will not participate in merely trading insults, nor will we tolerate participants merely trading insults.  Participants should not be thin-skinned or over sensitive to criticism, but should be prepared to defend their arguments when challenged.  If you don’t really have a coherent argument or counter-argument of your own, sit down and don’t embarrass yourself. Nonsensical, immoral or merely insulting submissions will not be published here.  If you have something serious to contribute to the conversation, back it up, keep it clean and keep it civil.  We humbly apologize to all religious conservative thinkers for the need to even say these things, but the New Liberals are what they are, and the internet is what it is. 

If you fear intolerant Leftist repercussions, do not use your real name and do not include email or any identifying information.  Elite Culturally Marxist Authoritarians cannot and will not tolerate your freedom of speech or any opposition to their own rigid pro-Marxist, pro-Islam, anti-Life, anti-Christian, anti-American, Globalist, anti-Nation, immoral, anti-white, racist intolerant and bigoted point of view.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input. 
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII

"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor.  It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi

Atheist Genesis:

In the beginning there was nothing, and nothing happened to nothing.
And then nothing accidentally exploded and created everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally encountered other bits of everything and formed some new kinds of everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into self-replicating bits of everything.
And then some self-replicating bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into dinosaurs.
