Rule Britannia

Support the EDL?
I haven't paid a huge amount of attention to the Royal Wedding because I've been busy shooting and riding - but I wish them well.

 The Bishop of London, who is an enemy of same sex blessings (SSBs), wimmin priests, liturgical dance, clown 'Masses' and suchlike nonsense, had this to say,

"Faithful and committed relationships offer a door into the mystery of spiritual life in which we discover this: the more we give of self, the richer we become in soul; the more we go beyond ourselves in love, the more we become our true selves and our spiritual beauty is more fully revealed. In marriage we are seeking to bring one another into fuller life."

I like that and think it's true.

Happy (late) Easter,

Holy Week

I've been accused, rightly, of 'neglecting my virtual flock'. Things have been a little busy with the usual ramp up to Easter, funerals, various deadlines and not half as much time to ride and shoot as I'd like. So that's my excuse, still, there's been the odd moment to gaze at the computer and the excellent site, Manhattan Infidel.

MI likes liturgical dance almost as much as I do; here's an excerpt, with accompanying picture of the Mahoney Girls:

"Desperate to induce vomiting the ER resorted to a new and controversial method:  Liturgical dance.
The Holy Sisters of the Fat Mannish Lesbian were brought in to do a five-minute interpretative dance of Jesus preaching about the dangers of climate change. Within seconds the child was vomiting.

“It was like watching Linda Blair in the Exorcist.  The kid was spewing across the entire room.” 

You can read the whole thing here, but in the meanwhile, have a blessed Holy Week and Maundy Thursday.

Stay on the horse.

No Gods, No Masters!
Being a simple country padre, who likes to ride, shoot and get out in the field against the menacing doves, coyotes and, opportunity permitting, hogs, I wasn't aware that Margaret Sanger's Planned Parenthood received millions of dollars every year from Uncle Sam. A little under a million dollars a day, according to CNS and no wonder, Planned Parenthood performed 332,378 abortions in 2009, or around one "termination" for every two seconds of every day in the year. That's a pretty high volume service to the public; just think of all those children who would otherwise be running around if it weren't for PP's taxpayer subsidy.

Top TEC Bishop, Sanger Supporter

By way of interest, Sanger, who coined the phrase that a woman should be "absolute mistress of her own body" as well as that old classic, "No Gods, No Masters!" is avidly supported by the same team who brought The Episcopal Church (TEC) and it's little sister, the Anglican Church of Canada (ACoC), women priests and bishops.

Enthusiastic efforts to keep the population down have done both denominations a power of good. England looks set to follow suit.

In the meanwhile, birth rates are falling to below replacement level; whence the urge to demographic suicide?

Lord have mercy.
