Cardinal McCarrick Accused of Sexual Abuse

Retired archbishop emeritus Theodore McCarrick of the Archdiocese of Washing D.C. has been accused of sexual abuse. The abuse allegedly happened decades ago when McCarrick was a priest in the Archdiocese of New York. McCarrick was a prominent voice during the pontificate of Saint Pope John Paul II. 

The Archdiocese of New York issued a statement saying that the Vatican was investigating claims against McCarrick. McCarrick claims he is innocent, however, the Vatican found the accusations credible. In light of this, McCarrick has resigned from public ministry.  He wrote in a statement:

“While I have absolutely no recollection of this reported abuse, and believe in my innocence,” his statement said, “I am sorry for the pain the person who brought the charges has gone through, as well as for the scandal such charges cause our people.”

His accuser is a 62-year-old married businessman from New Jersey.  His lawyer, Patrick Noaker stated that his client wished to remain anonymous.  The abuse is said to have begun in 1971. The victim was a student at Cathedral Prep Seminary which is a school for young boys interested in becoming a priest.  After being invited to serve Christmas Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral, the victim claims that he was measured for a cassock by then monsignor McCarrick.  While being measure, the victim claims that McCarrick unzipped his pants and molested him.  McCarrick then told the victim not to tell anyone about what happened.  After this assault, the victim claims that McCarrick flirted with him and assaulted him again in the bathroom.

Here are the statements issued:

Chef StoryTeller Anthony Bourdain dead at 61 from Suicide

Just days after designer Kate Spade was found dead in her apartment from an apparent suicide, famous chef and television personality Anthony Bourdain was discovered by his friend Eric Ripert, who is a chef himself.  He hung himself to death at the Chambard Hotel in Strasbourg, France.

Bourdain was there filming an episode for his "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown" show. He is survived by his daughter of 11 years of age and his girl friend Asia Argento.  Not much details are out as to why he would have done this. However, some are speculating that he was suffering from depression or was affected by a news report showing photographs of his girl friend Asia Argento with journalist Hugo Clement holding hands and embracing while in Rome, Italy.

Argento issued this statement:

 "Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did. His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds. He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated. My thoughts are with his family. I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine."






Anthony Bourdain was born in New York City on June 25, 1956. In 1978, he graduated from the Culinary Institute of America and worked in many restaurants, particularly at Brasserie Les Halles in Manhattan, New York. He struggled financially for a while and became an addict. After bouncing back, he wrote a book in 2000 entitled Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly. The book became and instant bestseller and brought his name to the public. He would land a gig on the Travel Channel hosting the cultural show Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations from 2005-2012, the Layover from 2011-2013 and moved to CNN to host Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. In this show, he would visit areas around the world which are often ignored by the travel agency business. He would meet the locals, talk to them, investigate their culture and customs and would have meals with them. These meals reflected the culinary culture of the region. Bourdain was an outspoken advocate for women in the restaurant business who have faced sexual harassment and advocated for a better restuarant industry by calling for better hygiene, professionalism and better treatment of Spanish-speaking illegal immigrants who are often employed at restaurants.

I particularly enjoyed the episodes Bourdain produced in The Bronx, Sicily and Puerto Rico. These episodes showcased the culture of the region and food. In the Bronx episode, he visited a Spanish restuarant I know well on 188 street. I have eaten there before with friends, specifically with my friend from St. Nicholas of Tolentine parish nearby. She calls the place, "The Cuchifrito Place." Bourdain is an excellent job showcasing the people and the food of the Bronx. He visited many areas and highlighted the art, music and diversity found in the Bronx. I will be forever grateful to him for presenting the Bronx in a good light. The Bronx is often portrayed as an area infested with bad things. While not perfect, its portrayal on television is highly exaggerated.




Former president, Barrack Obama took to Twitter to offer his condolences and memories of when both shared beers and a meal in Vietnam. Anthony Bourdain will be greatly missed. No one should judge him or where his soul ended up. We just do not know the state of his mind as he hung himself.  According to Celebatheists, Bourdain was an atheist. He was raised in a Jewish-Catholic home but was not given religious instruction.  Studies show that atheists have one of the highest rates of suicide.








May Anthony Bourdain, through the mercy of God, rest in peace!

If you reading this feel suicidal or know someone who does, seek help immediately. Do not hesitate to contact Suicide Prevent or messaging me:

Life On Mars? Organic Molecules Found

NASA announced today that its Curiosity Rover disovered organic molecules while testing martial soil on Mars.  Catholic scientist and astronomer, Dr. Michelle Thaller made the announcement on Twitter and live on television. Methane was also discovered emanating from the surface.  This gas is known to come from life as we know it.








A similar announcement was made in 2014, see: http://www.sacerdotus.com/2014/12/methane-on-mars.html. This discovery is not a declaration of life on Mars, but may be an indication that life may have existed there or still does, but underneath the surface. The organic molecules may be remains of life that may have existed on Mars or may have been deposited by meteors from outer space which have crashed on Mars.  Scientists are still not sure. It probably will not be until humanity actually safely lands an astronaut there when we will be able to know for sure. 


Organic molecules are carbohydrates, proteins, lipids and nucleic acids. They form what we call life on earth. I use the words "what we call" because there may be other forms of life that we are not aware of. It would be irrational to assume that any life elsewhere in the universe will be exactly built like life on earth is.  The methane on Mars is interesting because organisms produce it as a waste product; namely, flatulence. Whether there are aliens or bacteria underground passing gas or not, we are not sure yet. It may be the remains of life decomposing, who knows!

Victim of Assault, Gay Teacher Brandon Soriano: 'Homophobia is Real'

It is June. During this month, while the Catholic Church celebrates the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Body and Blood of Christ, others celebrate the National Puerto Rican day parade and Gay Pride. It is supposed to be a time of summer fun as the days get warmer and many have months off to enjoy it. However, one young man has been forced to start this time on bad terms.

Brandon Soriano, a 25-year-old elementary school teacher was brutally assaulted after leaving Queens Pride. In New York, each borough has a set day to celebrate Gay Pride. Queens starts it off, then Brooklyn, Staten Island, The Bronx with Manhattan ending it all with the much larger Gay Pride parade. Many LGBTQ and others participate in each event in a show of pride and solidarity.

Despite many advances made on how society sees and treats the LGBTQ community in recent years, some hate still remains. Soriano was enjoying his day at Queens pride and left after it was over. He was going to pick up some food before going to his apartment when two people yelled anti-gay slurs and brutally beat him up.  He was left unconscious on the sidewalk with a busted lip and very large bruises on his head and face. 

The attack was unprovoked, according to Soriano who said it occurred at around 10 at night on 37th Avenue and 84th Street in the Jackson Heights section of Queens. Soriano is hoping the perpetrators are caught. He says that if he sees them again that he will cross the street to avoid them. The attack has left him uneasy. He says that "Homophobia is real and it's annoying." The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force is current investigating the incident and is asking the public for any information that may lead to arrests.

As a Catholic, I disagree wholeheartedly with the LGBTQ lifestyle; however, this does not mean that I or any Catholic has justification to hate the LGBTQ. We are called to love our neighbors as ourselves (Mark 12:31). Not all neighbors will be Catholic. Jesus did not specify and left it in a general sense.
Any Catholic or anyone who claims to love God and hates gays, or assaults them physically does not love God at all.  He or she is defying God's will to love one another. We can disagree with each other, but we must never hate one another. This is just not God's way.  Moreover, the Catechism of the Catholic Church says it clearly:

2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

As it says, "They must be ACCEPTED with RESPECT, COMPASSION, and SENSITIVITY.  Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided."  Calling them f*gs, sodomites or any derogatory term is uncharitable and a sin against our neighbor which offends God and our neighbor. Moreover, assaulting a homosexual or anyone is never justified, unless in the case of self-defense of course (which is rare). I have many gay friends and it pains me to learn that this young man was attacked for no reason other than because he is gay. This could have been any one of my friends.  Let us pray for one another and protect one another. Let us sow the seeds of love in everyone we encounter. Despite our differences and alternate views, we are all children of God.  If you are a victim of hate, please report it to the authorities and do not keep the incident quiet. This will empower those with hateful hearts.   

If you have any information on this case, contact the NYPD: https://www1.nyc.gov/site/nypd/services/law-enforcement/hate-crimes.page

Eduardo Menoni: El Pollo Loco Infradotado Enojado Venezolano en Facebook


Editor's note: The post will be black in English and Green in Spanish. 
Nota del editor: la publicación será negra en inglés y verde en español.

Last year, a reader of my blog linked me to a Spanish Facebook post where this guy was posting ridiculous claims about God and religion. While not describing himself as an atheist, he posted the same banal arguments already refuted by many, including myself. Since the post was in Spanish, I tried my best to read it and respond to it using the Spanish I know and translators such as Google Translate. I wrote my refutation in both languages so that all of my readers can enjoy seeing how atheist arguments are easily refutable. You can see it here: http://www.sacerdotus.com/2017/11/refutado-las-pruebas-definitivas-de-que.html.  Well, after a year and some months, the guy, Eduardo Menoni messaged me in one of my Facebook post writing in Spanish that he sent me a private message.  Since he is not a "Facebook Friend," his message was sent to another folder on Facebook's Messenger. I found it and read it. It was a typical juvenial snarky message claiming that my post did not refute his claims.  In the message, he even wanted to debate me on You Tube.  

El año pasado, un lector de mi blog me vinculó a una publicación en Facebook en español donde este tipo publicaba afirmaciones ridículas sobre Dios y la religión. Aunque no se describía a sí mismo como un ateo, publicó los mismos argumentos triviales refutados por muchos, incluido yo mismo. Como la publicación fue en español, hice todo lo posible para leerla y responderla utilizando el español que conozco y traductores como Google Translate. Escribí mi refutación en ambos idiomas para que todos mis lectores puedan disfrutar viendo cómo los argumentos ateos son fácilmente refutables. Puedes verlo aqui: http://www.sacerdotus.com/2017/11/refutado-las-pruebas-definitivas-de-que.html. Bueno, después de un año y algunos meses, el tipo, Eduardo Menoni, me envió un mensaje privado en una de mis publicaciones de Facebook en español. Como él no es un "amigo de Facebook", su mensaje fue enviado a otra carpeta en el Messenger de Facebook. Lo encontré y lo leí. Era un típico mensaje juvenil sarcástico que decía que mi publicación no refutaba sus afirmaciones. En el mensaje, incluso quiso debatirme en You Tube.

Apparently, this kid is some pretentious YouTuber who is trying to become a social media celebrity posting silly videos. As usual, I accepted his request to debate and asked him to provide his identification and academic credentials to verify that he is worth debating. I will not waste my time and knowledge on amateurs or people who lack any higher education skills. In good faith, I opened up our ministry at Sacerdotus to a debate; however, this kid just wanted to troll. You can see his messages to me where he resorts to personal attacks and puerile behavior. In one message, he even tried to discredit me by claiming that my Instagram account does not have many followers. I got a laugh out of this and noted how he lacked critical thinking skills due to the fact that my Instagram account is brand new. Previously, Father Carl Diederich ran the account using "Sacerdotus." He was kind enough to hand the name to me so that I could use it to further the Sacerdotus ministry. While not an expert, I have been playing with Instagram and learning how to use it to promote the faith and challenge its challengers. 

Aparentemente, este chico es un YouTuber pretencioso que está tratando de convertirse en una celebridad de las redes sociales publicando videos tontos. Como de costumbre, acepté su pedido de debatir y le pedí que proporcionara su identificación y credenciales académicas para verificar que valía la pena debatir. No voy a perder el tiempo y el conocimiento sobre aficionados o personas que carecen de habilidades de educación superior. De buena fe, abrí nuestro ministerio en Sacerdotus a un debate; sin embargo, este niño solo quería troll. Puedes ver sus mensajes donde recurre a ataques personales y comportamiento pueril. En un mensaje, incluso trató de desacreditarme alegando que mi cuenta de Instagram no tiene muchos seguidores. Me reí de esto y noté cómo carecía de habilidades de pensamiento crítico debido al hecho de que mi cuenta de Instagram es completamente nueva. Anteriormente, el padre Carl Diederich ejecutó la cuenta usando "Sacerdotus". Él tuvo la amabilidad de entregarme el nombre para poder usarlo para promover el ministerio de Sacerdotus. Aunque no soy un experto, he estado jugando con Instagram y aprendiendo cómo usarlo para promover la fe y desafiar a sus rivales.

In any event, the kid Menoni continued his childishness in several messages showing he was triggered and envious of me. You can see his replies degrade to that of a middle schooler engaging in taunts and nonsense. Here I post the screen shots of the exchange and the original text.  As expected, he blocked me on Facebook and later on Instagram. This demonstrates his inability to engage with someone who has more education and experience than he does.


En cualquier caso, el niño Menoni continuó con su infantilismo en varios mensajes que mostraban que se había desencadenado y que tenía envidia de mí. Puedes ver que sus respuestas se degradan a las de un estudiante de secundaria que se involucra en burlas y tonterías. Aquí publico las capturas de pantalla del intercambio y el texto original. Como era de esperar, me bloqueó en Facebook y luego en Instagram. Esto demuestra su incapacidad para relacionarse con alguien que tenga más educación y experiencia que él.

You can use the Google Translate button on this site to translate the exchange into whatever language you prefer reading in. Hopefully, this post will expose Eduardo Menoni as a petty caricature who trolls Christians while making a complete fool of himself with his lack of education and maturity. Like most You Tubers, he is a kid looking for attention which he does not get offline. As a Venezuelan (Menoni), I cannot imagine the indoctrination he has received from his failed nation and its Socialism. He is clearly a Spanish dish missing the rice and beans.  His large bulging mosquito or bug eyes and sadistic smile says much psychologically speaking; even though they might be a sign of thyroidal problems.        

Puedes usar el botón Google Translate en este sitio para traducir el intercambio al idioma que prefieras leer. Con suerte, este post expone a Eduardo Menoni como una pequeña caricatura que atrapa a los cristianos mientras se hace el ridículo con su falta de educación y madurez. Como la mayoría de los You Tubers, él es un niño que busca atención y no se desconecta. Como venezolano (Menoni), no puedo imaginarme el adoctrinamiento que recibió de su nación fallida y su socialismo. Es claramente un plato español al que le faltan arroz y habichuelas.  Sus grandes ojos abultados de bichos o mosquitos y su sonrisa sádica dicen mucho psicológicamente hablando; a pesar de que pueden ser un signo de problemas tiroideos.

Editor's Note: The black text are my messages while the green are Eduardo's
Nota del editor: El texto negro son mis mensajes mientras que el verde son de Eduardo



Hola, buenas noches, he leído tu intento de refutar mi texto sobre las evidencias de que dios y el diablo no existen y me gustaría debatir en vivo contigo en youtube
para desmontar y refutar toda tu argumentación, ya que tiene bastante fallas y evaciones a mis respuestas, si gustas podemos debatir en vivo y dejar el video grabado en youtube


FRI 11:25PM
You accepted their request.
Hola. Me había olvidado de ti. Alguien me había enviado su publicación en mi sitio y me pidió que lo refutara. Lo rebatí porque el contenido tenía muchos conceptos erróneos comunes entre aquellos que no se molestan en investigar. Puedes unirte a mí en vivo en Sacerdotus Hangouts en cualquier momento, sin embargo, solo debes seguir los requisitos que se encuentran aquí http://www.sacerdotus.com/p/debate.html?m=0. Además, hablo inglés y no mucho español porque soy estadounidense. Esto probablemente sea problemático si no tiene una comprensión sólida del idioma inglés. También puede contestar directamente en la publicación si es más fácil para ti. Puedo responder en ambos idiomas como lo hice en mi refutación. Tus ideas erróneas tienen respuestas y quiero que el mundo sepa que no has descubierto nada nuevo. Solo acaba de repetir los mismos argumentos banales ya refutados.


SAT 1:24AM
Jejeje tienes mucho ego
Tengo 10 años investigando del cristianismo y créeme que el erróneo y equivocado eres tú
Por eso quiero debatir en vivo para rebatir tus conceptos erróneos y de lavado de cerebro cristiano
Para amar a los demás como a ti mismo. Ti ego está por el cielo donde está tu supuesto dios ??
Tú ego *


SAT 4:32AM
Lamento decirlo, pero está claro que no has estudiado ni investigado los temas en cuestión. Tu publicación refleja tu ignorancia y es por eso que decidí refutarla para que otros que puedan tener los mismos conceptos erróneos puedan ver que sí tienen respuestas. Doy la bienvenida a cualquier debate, solo cumple con los requisitos. No debatiré con nadie que camine en la calle. La persona debe tener una educación de nivel universitario y una comprensión del tema debatido. Fui ateo toda mi vida, así que estás ladrando al árbol equivocado, como dicen en Estados Unidos. No hay ningún argumento que puedas presentar que yo no sepa ni use. Es por eso que escribí mi libro popular El ateísmo es estúpido. El volumen 2 vendrá pronto. Simplemente estás repitiendo los mismos argumentos banales utilizados en los siglos XVII y XVIII. Están muertos en la academia, pero vivos entre las personalidades en línea que pretenden ser racionales. Como es, tengo grados en física, psicología, biología y filosofía. También tengo experiencia en teología y estudios bíblicos. Con eso dicho, doy la bienvenida a cualquier debate siempre que no sea una pérdida de tiempo, una plataforma para trolls en línea, y cumpla con los requisitos de un debate académico. ¿Habla usted Inglés? El lenguaje será el único problema. Puedo responder a las cosas básicas, no a todas las cosas en español e italiano. Nací en Nueva York, entonces mi idioma es el inglés. Por último, esto no tiene nada que ver con el ego. Tal vez tienes un complejo de inferioridad? Solo soy un tipo seguro debido a mis numerosos títulos y experiencia. Sin embargo, su ad hominem está debidamente anotado.
??

SAT 9:31AM
Eres solo un pobre ególatra por eso tú ignorancia la tapas con tus títulos y buscando disminuir a los demás. Yo soy licenciado con especialización y soy profesor por más de 5 años a nivel de maestría y especialización. El único complejos acá es tu inflado ego. Cuando hablas de que la gente de la calle no es como tú con un aire de superioridad que da asco. Hasta Jesus el maestro espiritual, no el personaje ficticio, te hubiese pateado la cara por ególatra. Realmente eres como casi tldlsñs cristianos un pobre hipócrita. Pensé debatir contigo en vivo pero eres solo un idiota con el cerebro lavado que seguramente vive de engañar a los demás con la pseudoreligión y le pide un diezmo que ni Jesús pedía. Con razón no pones  ni la foto tuya. Hasta tu mismo en el fondo te das asco. Basta con leerte y analizarte para darse cuenta. Yo fui creyente hasta los 14 años he leído la biblia completa y también tengo 10 años estudiando sobre la psicología y la espiritualidad, además de filosofia y no soy más ni menos que nadie. Tú complejo de inferioridad buscas taparlo con tus títulos y buscando humillar a los demás. Cosa que no es de alguien que supuestamente dice se practicante. Gente como tú da asco. Pensé en un debate serio pero con basuras como tú no vale la pena. Por eso tú debiste rebatirme con falacias y estás tan temeroso que solo profieres insultos diciendo no has indagado o no tienes títulos. La falacia ad hominen la usas tú pobre mequetrefe. Realmente mi lucha es contra gente como tú. Así que de mi parte no perderé más tiempo. Eres como todos los fanáticos religiosos solo un pobre ególatra. Revisé mi nota y vi tu post de hace 25 semanas. Realmente da pena por eso quería debatir en vivo porque con lógica puedo refutarte fácilmente. Por cierto tanto que desprecias a los no estudiados, que no es mi caso, te recuerdo que Jesús el que dices es hijo de "dios" nunca tuvo título. Así que puedes meterte tus títulos en el culo, junto a tu ego.
Así que realmente basuras como tú dan asco, lástima y risa. Con toda el alma te digo realmente eres un pobre tipo que su solo ego es muestra de la hipocresía de las pseudoreligiones. Tu ego y falacias ad hominen están debidamente anotadas. Por suerte cualquiera con algo de inteligencia lo puede notar. Siga con su ego y lavando cerebros. Yo seguiré revelando la verdad luchando contra basuras como tú. Por algo te hicieron llegar mi texto porque mi texto tiene llegada y está despertando gente. Tú nunca fuiste ateo. Eres y serás un pobre ególatra con inteligencia realmente limitada que esconde su identidad como buena basura que no es capaz de dar la cara. Algo que denota que tú mismo te escondes y que de ti mismo no estás tan orgulloso como tu boca intenta decir. Pero pendejos cómo tú no me engañan.
Hasta nunca tipejo
Qué ni valentía tiene de dar la cara y nombre ??
Por cierto pasé por las 4 cuentas de instagram de Sacerdotus ninguna supera los 100 seguidores. Eres solo pelusa de ombligo que nadie lee ?? mi nota de dios y el diablo tiene más me gustas que tus propias cuentas en instagram jajaja. Por suerte la gente no sigue a ególatras e idiotas. El ateísmo no es idiota. Tú eres el idiota cuando eras ateo y actualmente que es diferente jajajajajaja además me da compasión que no colocas ni tu cara. Solo imágenes tuyas en caricatura jajajajajaja como un niño de 12 años. Y después llamas a los demás troll. Mírate en un espejo enfermo mental jajaaja realmente me haz hecho el día

SUN 1:51AM
Su envidia es debidamente notada. Parece que he tocado un nervio en ti. Su falta de madurez es evidente en su respuesta defensiva. Muestra signos de una psique frágil que se desencadena fácilmente por una presencia más formidable. Perdóneme, pero según su publicación, no puedo creer que tenga alguna credencial de educación superior. Tu publicación estuvo mal escrita, mal investigada y basada en argumentos banales ya refutados. Si hubieras investigado, lo sabrías. Por otra parte, usted es hispano y proviene de una nación del tercer mundo. Habiendo dicho eso, puedo entender por qué no tendrías la misma capacidad educativa e intelectual que aquellos en las naciones del primer mundo como los Estados Unidos. Además, los hombres hispanos tienden a ser muy frágiles y emocionales. Se ponen a la defensiva cuando están amenazados. Su machismo está bajo ataque por lo que recurren a la puerilidad como lo has hecho. Tenga en cuenta sus comentarios sobre seguidores de instagram. ¿Desde cuándo los seguidores de las redes sociales son una medida de éxito o capacidad? Esto me dice que no tienes otra fuente de autoestima que no sea la emoción que experimentas a través de los seguidores de las redes sociales. Eso es triste. Mis cuentas de instagram son nuevas. Fueron creados hace solo unas semanas. Si fuera inteligente y supiera cómo investigar, vería las fechas de las fotos publicadas. Nuevamente, este es un indicador de que no tiene las habilidades críticas que una persona que es un graduado universitario debería tener. Ad hominem no es un argumento. Es una falacia ¿Sabes lo que significa un ad hominem? Como dijo Sócrates, "cuando se pierde el debate, la calumnia se convierte en la herramienta del perdedor". Tu publicación muestra este mecanismo de defensa que es típico de alguien que es derrotado. Además, mi sitio web tiene más de 1 millón de visitantes. Incluso fue galardonado con la mejor medalla católica, ateo y filosofía debido a su popularidad. Además, "Sacerdotus" es un ministerio, por lo tanto, no entiendo por qué necesitas ver una cara unida a él. Este es un ministerio dirigido por varias personas. ¿Eres una mariposa como dicen en los países latinos? ¿Por qué necesitas ver una cara masculina? Como se dijo anteriormente, los hombres hispanos a menudo son frágiles y se ponen a la defensiva debido a que tienen una masculinidad débil. Tu reacción indica esto. No era mi intención hacerte sentir a la defensiva, amenazado o causar que te emocionen emocionalmente. Aprende a ser estoico como yo, que usa la razón sobre las emociones. Aprende a tomar cosas como un hombre y no como una persona pusilanime. Si estos estallidos de frustración y puerilidad son lo que debo esperar en un debate, entonces no, gracias. Solo debatiré individuos cultos, maduros y compuestos, no individuos irascibles que se presentan a sí mismos como una parodia humana. Vuelve cuando hayas madurado. Estás tratando con los hombres grandes ahora pequeño niño.


Jajaja envidia de un ególatra que no pone no fotos y no lo lee nadie ??
Seguro que quiero ser como tú hahaha
Niño pequeño, por favor, crezca.  Estás actuando como un alumno de 6to grado.

De mi parte sigue con tu lavado de cerebro que no lee no tu mamá

Editor's Note:  Here he blocked me like a coward and I could not reply
Nota del editor: Aquí me bloqueó como un cobarde y no pude responder


As you can see, the kid started out somewhat sane and then deteriorated into a childish fool hurling insults and nonsensical statements. It is clear that this kid's masculinity was threatened by me. Perhaps his short stature has made him vulnerable to the Napoleon complex and this is why he needs to be aggressive in order to secure his fragile psyche. We can only go by observation of his defensiveness for now. One thing that we can tell is that this kid is clearly unstable, psychologically speaking. A simple refutation should not trigger someone unless he or she is insecure in his or her views. This is what clearly happened. The kid thought he was on top of the world with his post. By showing his errors and stupidity in the post, his ego was shattered. Like a wounded animal that is cornered, he growled and scratched back the best he could. What was even more disturbing was his insistence on viewing photos of me, another male. This is odd indeed. Is Eduardo a closeted homosexual? Why the need to view another man's photo and the frustration when the request is not fulfilled?  On his Instagram he does have homoerotic imagery such as this one:

Como pueden ver, el chico comenzó algo sano y luego se deterioró hasta convertirse en un tonto infantil lanzando insultos y declaraciones sin sentido. Está claro que la masculinidad de este niño fue amenazada por mí. Tal vez su corta estatura lo ha hecho vulnerable al complejo de Napoleón y es por eso que necesita ser agresivo para asegurar su frágil psique. Solo podemos ir por observación de su actitud defensiva por el momento. Una cosa que podemos decir es que este niño es claramente inestable, psicológicamente hablando. Una simple refutación no debe desencadenar a alguien a menos que él o ella sea inseguro en sus puntos de vista. Esto es lo que claramente sucedió. El niño pensó que estaba en la cima del mundo con su publicación. Al mostrar sus errores y estupidez en el mensaje, su ego se hizo añicos. Como un animal herido que está acorralado, gruñó y le devolvió lo mejor que pudo. Lo que fue aún más perturbador fue su insistencia en ver fotos de mí, otro hombre. Esto es realmente extraño. Eduardo es un homosexual encerrado? ¿Por qué la necesidad de ver la foto de otro hombre y la frustración cuando la solicitud no se cumple? En su Instagram tiene imágenes homoeróticas como esta:


Hopefully this kid will muster up the courage to actually debate me like he wanted to. Despite our language barrier, I was open to doing it. Why he became timid and resorted to blocking me is beyond reason. I am an aggressive debater, yes; but I am so only with respect and directness. If Eduardo Menoni is an atheist, then he did a poor job representing atheism. I was expecting an honest debate with a somewhat educated kid.  Instead, I got an angry little insecure Venezuelan who resorted to middle school taunting as a defense mechanism. As Venezuelans say, "A llorar pal valle" (Go and cry in the valley).  To that I add, "y masculate y crece algunos cojones"(and man up and grow some "cojones").


Espero que este niño tenga el coraje de debatirme como quería. A pesar de nuestra barrera del idioma, estaba dispuesto a hacerlo. Por qué se volvió tímido y recurrió a bloquearme está más allá de la razón. Soy un polemista agresivo, sí; pero estoy tan solo con respeto y franqueza. Si Eduardo Menoni es ateo, entonces hizo un mal trabajo representando el ateísmo. Esperaba un debate honesto con un chico educado. En su lugar, obtuve a un pequeño venezolano inseguro y enojado que recurrió a las burlas de la escuela secundaria como un mecanismo de defensa. Como dicen los venezolanos, "A llorar pal valle." A eso agregué, "y mascula y crece algunos cojones."

SCOTUS to Gays: You Cannot Have Your Cake & Eat It Too

Great news! The Supreme Court of the United States of America decided in a 59 page ruling in favor of the Protestant Christian who refused to bake a cake celebrating the so-called "marriage" of two gay men.  This case has been in the news for many years now. It has empowered the LGBTQ agenda to fiercely go after Christians and attack religious freedom. Colorado's government even went on full attack against Jack Phillips who owes Masterpiece Cake.  The court decided 7-to-2 against the two gay men.  All of the justices minus Sotomayor and Ginsburg were in agreement that Phillips was met with harsh anti-religious sentiment by Colorado officials.

This case gained national attention when Charlie Craig and Dave Mullins filed a complaint against baker Jack Phillips in Colorado. The Colorado Civil Rights Commission went after Phillips immensely. He was not given a fair hearing. The institution automatically sided with the gay men and completely disregarded Phillip's religious freedom. Justice Kennedy noted this in the ruling. He said that one of the seven commissioners from the Colorado Civil Rights Commission described Phillip's religious faith as "despicable" and conflated him as a person trying to support slavery using religious faith or teachings.

The ruling has set up brake against LGBTQ extremism which has taken hold in that last few years. The LGBTQ agenda has been working hard to push religious freedom back.  Religion is now its only enemy. Philosophy and other areas that bring about criticism have sold their souls to irrationality and can no longer be trusted as beacons of questioning ideas. Many universities and political philosophies have adopted the LGBTQ agenda without question. Even social media will label any criticism of the LGBTQ agenda as hate. I myself was suspended by Twitter after someone falsely reported a tweets I posted about hepitatis and homosexual sexual activity as "hate." Note, this information has also been posted by health departments and other verified health accounts.  I was targeted because my account tweets on religion most of the time.  Hopefully, this new ruling will empower religious people to push back and not let themselves or their consciences be silenced.  The two gay men could have sought the services of another bakery.  Instead, they decided to harass an honest baker trying to make a living using his culinary talent. The men were not denied a cake because of their orientation. They were denied serviced because of what the cake was representing; a perversion of the institution of marriage.

Vatican: Dear German Bishops, No Holy Communion to Protestants

After talks by the German bishops about allowing Protestants to receive Holy Communion, Pope Francis and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith responded via a letter by Cardinal Ladria with a resounding NO. In the letter published on the Italian blog Settimo Cielo, the bishops of Germany are told not to rush into their decision due to many concerns the pope has about the bishop's proposition:




***
Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
Prot. N. 212/2018 - 64727

Vatican City
Palace of the Sant’Uffizio

May 25 2018

To His Most Reverend Eminence
Cardinal Reinhard Marx
Archbishop of Munich and Freising
President of the German Episcopal Conference
Kardinal-Faulhaber Str. 7
D-80333 München
Bundesrepublik Deutschland

Your Eminence, Most Illustrious President!

At the end of our fraternal conversation on May 3, 2018 on the document "Mit Christus gehen…" [“Walking with Christ. On the path of unity. Interconfessional marriages and joint participation in the Eucharist. A pastoral guide from the German episcopal conference"]  we determined together that I would inform the Holy Father about the meeting.

Already in our audience of May 11 2018 I spoke with Pope Francis about our meeting and gave him a summary of the conversation. On May 24 2018 I again discussed the question with the Holy Father. Following these meetings I would like to bring to your attention the following points, with the explicit approval of the pope.

1. The multiple ecumenical efforts of the German episcopal conference, in a particular way the intense collaboration with the council of the Evangelical Church of Germany, deserve recognition and appreciation. The joint commemoration of the Reformation in 2017 has shown that in recent years and decades a foundation has been found that allows bearing witness together to Jesus Christ, the savior of all men, and working together in an effective and decisive way in many areas of public life. This encourages us to move forward with trust on the road of an ever deeper unity.

2. Our conversation of May 3 2018 showed that the text of the guide raises a series of problems of noteworthy significance. The Holy Father has therefore reached the conclusion that the document is not ready for publication. The essential reasons for this decision can be summarized as follows:

a. The question of admission to communion for evangelical Christians in interconfessional marriages is an issue that touches on the faith of the Church and has significance for the universal Church.

b. This question has effects on ecumenical relations with other Churches and other ecclesial communities that are not to be underestimated.

c. The issue concerns the law of the Church, above all the interpretation of canon 844 CIC. Since in a few sectors of the Church there are open questions in this regard, the dicasteries of the Holy See concerned have already been instructed to produce a timely clarification of these questions at the level of the universal Church. In particular it appears opportune to leave to the diocesan bishop the judgment on the existence of “grave and urgent necessity.”

3. For the Holy Father it is of great concern that in the German episcopal conference the spirit of episcopal collegiality should remain alive. As Vatican Council II has emphasized, “the Episcopal bodies of today are in a position to render a manifold and fruitful assistance, so that this collegiate feeling may be put into practical application” (Dogmatic Constitution “Lumen Gentium” no. 23).

Bringing this to Your attention, I send You fraternal greetings and wishes of blessing.

Yours in the Lord,

Luis F. Ladaria, S.I.
Titular bishop of Thibica
Prefect

This letter is a good starting point for the German bishops to work upon. We cannot hand out Holy Communion to just anyone.  Communion does not only represent union with the true body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ, this sacrament also is a sign of unity with the Catholic Church which is the Body of Christ herself.  To give Holy Communion to non-Catholics is heretical and makes no sense, theologically and rationally speaking.  Kudos to the Holy Father Pope Francis and the CDF for speaking out on this issue which is affecting the entire Church. This is more evidence that our pope is not a heretic or some crazy liberal steering the Church off course as some have been accusing him of.  Let us pray that the German bishops follow this order and reeducate themselves on the value of the Holy Eucharist.
