Obscene Vatican Nativity Lauded By LGBT Activists - Too Racy For Facebook

Vox Catholica

Pope Francis has recently said that the media has been "looking for things that are old news, and have already been dealt with, and bringing them to light today." He said this kind of sensationalized, defamatory and unbalanced journalism is a "grave sin that hurts the heart of the journalist and hurts others."

While I agree that calumny and defamation are evil and sinful, there is certainly a great advantage, in my opinion, for people with the attention span of a gnat to be able to re-visit old stories that re-frame how we view new stories.

So, in the light of the Pope's recent interview, and in Christmas charity, I won't be bringing up things like when Pope Francis said "There is no Catholic God", or when he said Mary thought about yelling at an angel at the foot of the cross "Liar! I was deceived." Or that time he got a Crucifix fashioned as a Communist hammer and sickle. Or his dereliction of duty in the face of Dubia about the reception of the sacraments by the divorced and "remarried." And I definitely don't want to mention the unprecedented filial correction on the propagation of heresy.

No, I don't want to talk about any of that "old" stuff. Let's talk about something new!

Let's talk about the Vatican's new, improved, dynamic and innovative Nativity...

static1.squarespace.jpg

Maybe it's just me, but this nativity resembles Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride more than the central moment in history where God became man.

The "theme" for this year's nativity is the Seven Corporal Works of Mercy. The Pope explained:

“This year’s Nativity scene, executed in the typical style of Neapolitan art, is inspired by the works of mercy. They remind us that the Lord has told us: ‘Whatever you wish men to do to you, you also do to them’ (Mt 7.12). The crib is the suggestive place where we contemplate Jesus Who, taking upon Himself the miseries of man, invites us to do likewise, through acts of mercy.”

What I'm missing is why there needs to be a theme in the first place? Why can't we just celebrate the birth of Our Lord? Why does everything have to be changed?

These are all rhetorical questions, of course, because we should already know the answers. "They" (whoever "they" are) will not stop until everything of the Catholic religion is completely destroyed. Traditions must be uprooted, continual distractions must be put in place, and there can be absolutely nothing left that even barely resembles the "old religion" for fear that the faithful might rise up against the rising tide of sin, degeneracy, globalism, and slavery engulfing the world. The "New World Order" types fear a strong Catholicism, because strong Catholics would never allow "them" to destroy our countries, our cultures, and our souls. Ultimately, this is why all the natural defense systems of the Church were done away with at Vatican II, and the people were sedated by the opiate-like "smoke of satan."

The Nativity, designed by Antonio Cantone who has been designing Nativities for the church for a few years, was intended to be controversial. Cantone said:

“It is not a campy nativity; it is particular and makes you think... It leaves no one indifferent; there are provocations.”

One group that did not remain indifferent on this nativity is the popular social media site Facebook, who disallowed advertising of a post containing a photograph of the scene. The Facebook page "Veritas Vincit International" posted the photo, as a means of critisicing it, only to have their ad rejected. The justification for this censorship? “Your ad can’t include images that are sexually suggestive or provocative.” 

I'm not sure if it's more sad or funny that the website which has been a platform for ISIS recruitmentlive streamed suicide videospedophilia, and all manner of smutty/pornographic posts, has finally found some twisted sense of morality in censoring this photograph. Frankly, I'm not so sure the nudity really was the problem for Facebook; maybe they were just upset that "Veritas Vincit International" was critical of this "artistic" decision of Francis - the radical left's dearly beloved Pope.

What's more, the controversial Nativity scene was donated by Abbey of Montevergine, which LifeSite News has recently exposed as a center of Homosexualist Activism.

According to LifeSite:

[...]The Abbey of Montevergine, which donated the innovative ‘Nativity of Mercy,’ houses the Marian image that has been adopted as patroness by LGBT activists in Italy. The abbey shrine is the annual destination of a sort of sacred and profane “ancestral gay pride” pilgrimage which, according to one LGBT activist, in recent years has gained the “active, political participation of the LGBT community.”

An official of the Vatican’s Governorate has told LifeSiteNews that the abbey of Montevergine initially proposed the original idea for the ‘Nativity of Mercy.’ The Vatican discussed and developed a more detailed design with the abbey, then submitted final plans to the Secretary of State and Pope Francis for approval, which was duly granted.

In an interview with LifeSite, Antonello Sannini, president of homosexual activist group Arcigay Naples said:

“The presence of the Vatican Nativity Scene for us is a reason to be even happier this year [...] For the homosexual and transsexual community in Naples, it is an important symbol of inclusion and integration.”

The Vatican has thus far declined comment on this radical nativity, but Italian Church historian Roberto de Mattei has not remained silent:

[...] de Mattei of the Lepanto Foundation sees this as the latest attempt to “paganize Italy and Europe” through indirect means, in what he calls “soft neo-paganization.”

This involves choosing places of Christian worship “to return them to their pagan origins,” De Mattei explained, sending Christianity back into the age of catacombs where it was persecuted by the pagans. The LGBT movement is not only political or cultural but a “religious movement” with pagan characteristics, he added. “This should not surprise us, because sex was also at the center of many pagan cults,” De Mattei said. “This therefore portends a new neo-pagan persecution of those who remain faithful to Catholicism.”

De Mattei noted that next year marks 50 years since the cultural, or sexual, revolution of 1968, and he believes it is now being “transformed into a religious revolution” where sex is still at the center, but being “transformed into a divinity intended to replace Christianity.”

War On Christmas: Jesuit Priest Spouts Modernist Heresies In New Liberal Propaganda Video

Vox Catholica

Another Christmas, another chance to attack Jesus Christ, and His One True Church. This year, tragically, the culprit happens to be a radical liberal Catholic priest.

Last week, Father Kevin O’Brien, dean of the Jesuit School of Theology at Santa Clara University, recorded a video with the pro-sodomite, pro-abortion, Marxist propaganda website Mic.com in which he proudly declared that there is no such thing as a "War On Christmas", and that the idea of said "war" is just a "distraction".

Right... I guess the following are just "distractions":

Yep, the war on Christmas is totally fake, not real, a figment of our imaginations. It's not like members of a certain “religion of peace” are plowing trucks into Christmas markets, trying to kill as many Christians as they can.

Well, you see, that doesn't count because that's not in America. It's not like we have people in America trying to blow up a subway station because of its Christmas posters...

Maybe, I'm missing something here. Maybe this Father O'Brien makes a good point in his video that is eluding me. It won't hurt to watch it, right?

Wow. Wrong again. That was actually painful to watch. It's like watching somebody try to explain why it's okay to allow his wife to cheat on him. Pathetic.

Let's thoroughly dismantle Father O'Brien's entire premise here, shall we?

"I don't think Jesus would care much about whether we say Merry Christmas or not, because He was not concerned with promoting Himself...

Okay, Father might have a point here. It's true, Jesus wasn't concerned with promoting Himself and frequently told His Apostles not to tell anyone what they had seen [Matthew 17:9Mark 7:36Mark 9:8]. But, Father, there's one obvious caveat you're kind of missing here. Promoting Jesus Christ and His Church is your job, and two-thirds of the verses I just cited specifically state that Christ wanted His Apostles to make known His identity as the Messiah, and the Son of God, after His Resurrection, which in turn would save many from the fires of hell [Mark 16:15-16]. 

Let's continue with Father O'Brien's drivel:

"We have to be careful about the language we use in a pluralistic society like ourselves. Because in it, we encounter people of different "faith traditions". Pope Francis will often speak about a culture of encounter, not confrontation, and this means listening to people and respecting people who are different than us. We listen to them not just simply to be nice, but to learn. He also said, 'Whenever we encounter another person in love, we learn something new about God'."

In other words, Father O'Brien thinks we should refrain from possibly offending heretics and adherents of false religions. And, it's certainly not a good thing to just go around bashing people over the head with your religion, but when push comes to shove, we can't give in to political correctness and social pressures. Right is right, wrong is wrong, and it's not a sin to be charitable. Since when is "admonishing the sinner" something "hateful"? How is "instructing the ignorant" (i.e. non-Catholics) an offensive act?

Confrontation is not always a bad thing. If you take Father O'Brien's (and Pope Francis', for that matter) new doctrine against "confrontation" to its logical conclusion, I guess we should just let Uncle Albert continue to drink himself stupid. It would probably be better if we let sister Jane starve herself to death because she thinks she's fat. And sure, why not let Jack go ahead refashion himself as Jill...

You see? Absurd, unrealistic. This priest is living in La-La land. If we don't confront those who find themselves marching under the banner of the antichrist, in charity for the salvation of their souls, they will most certainly confront us, and they won't be as well-intentioned as we are (see: Islamic Terror AttacksThe HolodomorThe Guillotine/Reign of Terror).

Finally, we move on to the biggest whopper of Fr. O'Brien's propaganda video:

"Now Christians, like any people of faith, need to defend the right to practice their faith in our society, but it's just not about promoting or protecting Christians. If I'm to be called 'Christian' or a good citizen, I need to be as protective of the rights of Muslims, for instance, in this country to practice their faith. I need to be as vigilant to protect their rights in their communities as I do my Christian community."

This. Is. Evil. Through-and-through, pure evil. The scary part is that people are already doing this.

First of all, ask yourself: Are Muslims protective of Christians' rights to practice their religions in their countries?

No. The answer, dear Father O'Brien, is no. 

So if we continue to allow and protect Islam in Western societies with Western birthrates as low as they are, and with Islam growing as fast as it is, we can only be even more assured of the destruction of the Kingship of Christ on earth, and the destruction of the soul, with billions ending up in hell.

You may be asking yourself, "How can someone stray so far from the truth of Catholicism, while still believing that they are Catholic?" The answer is simple: MODERNISM.

What is going on in Father O'Brien's head is Religious Liberty gone wild, mixed with a hefty dose of Freemasonry and the idea of Universal Salvation.

Here's how the error goes:

There is a God, but different people experience Him in different ways. These different experiences amalgamate themselves and manifest in different "faith traditions". Each "faith tradition" is equally valid for each individual, because no two people are exactly the same and people experience one and the same object in different ways. Maybe my red is your blue, and your blue is my red. Since I can't be you, and you can't be me, we can't know if your blue is my red, and my red is your blue. Therefore, differences in religions are nothing to fight about because, ultimately, we're all talking about the same thing. You do your thing, I'll do my thing, and neither of our things are better than the other; so I'll respect you and you'll respect me, and live happily ever after.

For Father O'Brien and his ilk, it is not absurd to believe that there are about as many "faiths" as there are genders (hint: we're talking more than 2 here). This, of course, is preposterous and completely against the Catholic religion, which is the true religion of God, and the only religion whose mysteries are truly unfathomable by man. This is so because they weren't created by man, which means we must have supernatural faith to believe what our finite minds cannot fully grasp: One God, Three Persons. Father. Son. Holy Ghost.

We do not get to choose what is true, and what is not. We do not get to define reality. We cannot pick and choose what to believe and what to reject, and it is certainly impossible to claim that man has the liberty to choose his own religion, according to his own personal inclinations.

As a matter of fact, this whole concept has already been condemned for quite some time. Take, for example, this erroneous statement, condemned by Pope Leo XIII:

[The State] is bound to grant equal right to every creed, so that the public order may not be disturbed by any particular form of religious belief. And it is a part of this theory that all questions that concern religion are to be referred to private judgement; that everyone is to be free to follow whatever religion he prefers..." - [Immortale Dei]

Or this one, from Gregory XVI:

"We now come to another and most fruitful cause of the evils which at present afflict the Church and which We so bitterly deplore; We mean indifferentism, or that fatal opinion everywhere diffused by the craft of the wicked, that men can by the profession of any faith obtain the eternal salvation of their souls, provided their life conforms to justice and probity...

"From this poisoned source of indifferentism flows that false and absurd or rather extravagant, maxim that liberty of conscience should be established and guaranteed to each man" - [Mirari Vos]

Or yet another condemned statement, this one denounced by Blessed Pius IX:

"... the liberty of conscience and of worship is the peculiar (or inalienable) right of every man."

"[This right] must be proclaimed and guaranteed by law in every properly constituted society." - [Quanta Cura]

Father O'Brien, dean of a theological school, is so rife with Modernism, Liberalism and error, I'm surprised he can tell the difference between his shirt and his pants. And to make matters worse, he isn't even calling just for the liberty to choose your own religion. He is asking us to actively defend, protect and help propagate what we know to be a false religion, concocted by a man named Mohammed, whose "god" is the devil.

If you've made it this far into the article, without getting triggered, or succumbing to ADHD and clicking over to another site, I must ask you to pray for this poor priest, Father Kevin O'Brien. And when you're done with that, arm yourself with the truth about the false notion of Religious Liberty.
