“In light of their recent behaviour regarding the abortion debate and due to their long-running policy on pro-life matters I would not entertain the use of church property for any such meeting”. Fr. Eugene O’Neill, parish priest of St. Patrick’s in Coalisland, Co. Tyrone, on the banning of Sinn Fein from church property.
Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orban, has announced that in a bid to increase the country’s population and combat Hungary’s demographic winter the Hungarian State will offer the free provision of IVF treatment to all Hungarian women. Just recently Orban’s government nationalised six private fertility clinics and declared the ghoulish-business to be of “national strategic importance”.
In vitro fertilisation treatment involves the laboratory creation of embryonic human life with selected life being implanted into the ‘client’s’ womb whilst rejected humans are ‘disposed’ of, some of them ending up being used for so-called scientific experimental research.
Whilst previous steps Hungary has taken to halt and reverse its demographic decline are to be applauded, this is a ghoulish step too far that must be condemned for the evil that it is. IVF is essentially no different from abortion. Human life is callously murdered and the souls of millions of unbaptised children are ripped from their newly-forming bodies.
A ghoul is a mythical monster that feasts upon human flesh, and especially on children. That is what Hungary has just become.
Catholic professor, Dr. E. Michael Jones, argues at The Unz Review that “pornography is political control.”
We are told that “Sexual freedom goes hand in hand with freedom of speech” and that “The issue of pornographic images is intrinsically linked to the issue of freedom of speech,” but in reality pornography is a form of control. Pornography has nothing to do with freedom. Pornography is a weapon because, as St. Thomas Aquinas pointed out, lust “darkens the mind.” Lust makes you blind. A blind opponent is easily defeated. Pornography is the weaponisation of Lust ……..
……. St. Augustine brought the biblical story of Samson up to date in his day shortly after the fall of the Roman Empire when he wrote, “It is clear that sin is the primary cause of servitude.” That means, he continued in another passage from the same book, that “a good man, though a slave, is free; but a wicked man, though a king, is a slave. For he serves, not one man alone, but, what is worse, as many masters as he has vices.” …….
……. Man was free as long as he was moral, which is to say as long as he acted according to the dictates of practical reason. Man is not free to be irrational. Man can use his freedom to give into passion, but at that point he becomes a slave.”
“I have long been troubled by the way so many believing Christians in the West have either been ignorant of or turned their backs on the plight of Palestinians, both Christian and Muslim. Right-wing Evangelicals, under the sway of heretical theology, are so blinded by their obsession with Israel that they cannot see Israel’s victims. Other Western Christians simply just do not know or about the people of Palestine.
I find this state of affairs to always be distressing, but especially so at Christmas time, since the Christmas story we celebrate not only took place in that land, it continues to define the lives of the Palestinians who live in places like Bethlehem and Nazareth.”
Join up with the Friends of St. George
In the last financial year The Saint George Educational Trust awarded nearly ninety-two-thousand pounds to associations of Catholic laity who are developing all sorts of exciting social, cultural and educational projects aimed at rebuilding and restoring Christendom.
The Friends of St. George play a vital auxiliary role in this important work of the Trust and help make these actions possible
Friends of St. George help SGET fund projects, raise grant monies, and publish materials aimed at planting seeds to encourage the conversion of lost generations of socially-bewildered and spiritually-blinded souls.
By becoming a Friend of Saint George you can help us this coming year and beyond to fund a new endeavour aimed at creating a structured programme of university-level Christian education networked to thousands of young people in Europe and throughout the English-speaking world.
You can help us fund an exciting vision created by a world-class musical artist to bring Gregorian and Byzantine Chant to hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions, of lost souls still open to traditional European cultural and spiritual inspiration. And this in an electrifying and stunningly visual manner that cannot but succeed in positively stirring-up heart and soul,.
You can help us with these two immense projects and much more besides.
The Saint George Educational Trust is a U.K.-based charitable trust, registered with the Charity Commission in England and Wales, but Friends of St George can be found in any and every corner of the world. FOSG endeavour to make the small sacrifice of donating the equivalent sum of just one pound per day to The Saint George Educational Trust. This can be done by online banking, electronic transfer or by standing order. Donation can be made either once a month or annually. UK taxpayers should get in touch and request a Gift Aid form from us so that the taxman adds extra revenue to donations.
Sacrificing the price of a short-hop bus ride, a newspaper, a chocolate bar or a cup of coffee every day is surely not too much to ask for the rebuilding of Christian social order?
Help us make that social reconstruction a growing reality by joining with the Friends of St. George, and may God bless you abundantly for it.
Let us work together to build the Kingship of Christ “on earth as it is in Heaven.”
