Saturday I attended the 12th annual Catholic Men’s Conference at the DCU center in Worcester (formally the Centrum for any expats living elsewhere for a while) a few quick thoughts from it:
It’s quite a sight to see hundreds of men in line for confession. Particularly if in your parish only a few people regularly confess.
Even if you are that rarest of people a married catholic priest you still make wife quips
It’s one of the few places when you will see George Weigel of National Review,,,
And really where but in a conference of men can you hear a priest give a speech on confession and Masturbation?
These men’s conferences have since the first one in Worcester that dozen years ago have sprung up around the country and have been an important part of re-catechizing the faithful, particularly when the MSM and the Culture delight in the abject hatred of the faith and present their image of it accordingly.
There is nothing so frustrating to secular humanists and the media as a well catechized Catholic.
Driving home from the conference yesterday I heard on the Radio that the new Black Panthers have put a prize on the head of George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon Martin last month
You know last time I mentioned the murder rate of young black men in the inner city. I don’t remember the New Black Panthers offering a bounty on any of their killers of those young black men.
Apparently the New Black Panthers hold the same rules for certain words as they do for the killing of young Black men. It’s apparently OK to murder a young black man provided the killer is also black.
I suspect the mothers of those young Black men murdered by gang and drug violence every year might disagree.
Of course it could be economic considerations. If the New Black Panthers offered a bounty for the killers in black on black violence, the payoffs might bankrupt them.
Since Mr. Zimmerman is Hispanic I wonder if La Raza will be providing protection or a counter bounty if someone collects the bounty on Zimmerman?
Twitchy reports Spike Lee is re-tweeting Zimmerman’s home address. If Zimmerman is murdered I wonder if La Raza will be taking these names down?
Here is a story Spike Lee hasn’t bothered to re-tweet:
Investigators with the Sanford Police Department are still trying to figure out exactly what happened during an altercation which resulted in a fatal shooting in the Twin Lakes area. The shooting happened just after 7 p.m. Sunday evening on Twin Trees Lane. A man who witnessed part of the altercation contacted authorities.
“The guy on the bottom, who had a red sweater on, was yelling to me, ‘Help! Help!’ and I told him to stop, and I was calling 911,” said the witness, who asked to be identified only by his first name, John.
John said he locked his patio door, ran upstairs and heard at least one gun shot.
“And then, when I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on the top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point.”
That story BTW is from Feb 27th Tom McGuire also picks up on something the MSM has not:
However, one wonders what the City Manager means by “We are aware of the background information regarding both individuals involved in this event.” Isn’t the second individual Trayvon Martin, and what (if anything) do they know that the public does not?
It has been reported that Trayvon Martin was on a ten-day suspension from school, but those records have been kept from the public. I have not checked Mr. Martin’s high school, but as a guide, some other Miami high school imposes ten day suspensions for fighting, but also as a culmination of repeated violations of the dress code or smoking bans. The police know, but we don’t, and the Martin family attorneys are keeping a lid on this.
The truth is I don’t know what happened that night and neither do any of the people currently beating their breasts. What I DO know is this the actual facts no longer matter to those who have decided the death of this young man will be a fundraising, propaganda or political plus to them and they intend to use this fellow’s corpse for as long as the media will let them get away with it…
…which will be at least till November of this year.
One last think the same people who are have used this shooting
Speaking of a narrative, remember a few years ago when the media was all a-twitter over a protest in front of his house. Apparently he is much more level headed about threats to city employees in his neighborhood these days:
So where is Russ Carnahan now that Occupiers have not only vandalized the home of a city employee — who reportedly lives but a couple blocks from Carhanan — but the very neighborhood in which Carnahan lives? Don’t you think if tea partiers were spray painting threats like the below in his neighborhood, he’d be quick to make a statement about it since he was so quick to lie earlier?
I’ll tell you where he is, he is in the same place where the MSM is on the killings of Jews in France by a self styled Al-Qaeda member named Mohammad. They know nothing they see nothing.
Well maybe the MSM doesn’t see anything but the Jews in France do.
In the past few years, the number of French Jews immigrating to Israel has doubled. Hundreds of French Jews have bought apartments in Israel. It’s their “pied-a-terre” in case the situation gets darker in Europe.
According to the statistics available, due to aliyah and assimilation, French Jewry is projected to experience a dramatic decline from 520,000 in 2000, to 480,000 in 2020, to 380,000 in 2050, and to 300,000 by 2080. The Jewish population in the United Kingdom will also decline to 240,000 in 2020, 180,000 in 2050, and 140,000 in 2080.
It looks like our Muslim friends in the Arab world/Muslim world remaking France and the UK in their own Judenrein image.
Why do I suspect there are 80 and 90 year old people in German Nursing homes smiling when they read that story?
BTW my friend Pam Geller also sees it and writes about it, loudly. The media will never forgive her for that.
Just saw this tweet concerning this as I was writing:
If you want to know why those who afford it choose home schooling and or private and Catholic Schools this says it all.
Finally I want to quote a story from Tip O’Neill’s Autobiography Man of the House:
Jack (Kennedy) must have been everywhere during that campaign, and he must have approached me seven or eight different times to ask me to be with him. Again and again I explained that Mike Neville was my pal, that Mike had served in the legislature with me, and that he deserved my support.
“But I’m going to win,” Jack said.
“Maybe you will” I told him, “but I’m with Mike Neville if I’m with him alone. And I’m going to make damn sure we carry North Cambridge.”
Let me tell you something: I remember when Charles Johnson tried to throw Pamela Geller under the wheels of his Little Green Bus, and I stood up and said not just no, but hell, no.
Maybe Rick Santorum’s not your favorite candidate. Maybe Pamela Geller’s not your favorite blogger. Maybe Rush Limbaugh’s not your favorite talk-radio host, but conservatives can’t let liberals tell us who our friends are.
Don’t let liberals tell you what to think. Don’t play along with the “gotcha” game. Don’t help them defame people’s reputations.
By God, REMEMBER BREITBART!
If Stacy McCain is with you, he is with you. Ironically I’ll always owe Charles Johnson a debt of gratitude because his attacks on Stacy led to my friendship with him.
Life’s funny like that.
