Flashback: Did "Shea & Armstrong... Adopted the Democrat Party Platform"?

 

Back on October 25, 2019, LifeSiteNews reported the words of Francis:

"I would like to say a word about the pachamama statues that were removed from the Church of Traspontina."
(LifeSiteNews, "Full transcript of the Pope's comments on pagan 'Pachamama' statues," October 25, 2019)

The National Catholic Register's contributing writer Dave Armstrong (according to the journalism website muckrack.com) is in a dilemma because either he is calling his beloved Francis a liar or he is saying statues which Francis called "the pachamama statues" are not what he called them, but instead "a strong case can be made that the naked images "represent the [naked] Blessed Virgin Mary":

"There is a strong case to be made that they [the naked images Francis called "pachamama statues"] represent the [naked] Blessed Virgin Mary."
(patheos.com/blog/davearmstrong, "'Pachamama' [?] Statues: Marian Veneration or Blasphemy Idolatry?," November 5, 2019)

How dare the so-called pro-family National Catholic Register have a writer who claims the naked images Francis called "pachamama statues" can by "a strong case to be... [naked images of] the Blessed Virgin Mary."

Maybe someone needs to organize a Catholic boycott of the National Catholic Register.

The Catholic Monitor commenter Richard W Comerford had this to say about Armstrong and his collaborator Mark Shea:

What Happened?

Once Mr Mark Shea (who was booted by the Register) and Mr Armstrong both wrote inspiring Catholic works. Both were unflinchingly pro-life. Then something happened?

Messrs. Shea and Armstrong now appear to hold the ordinary pew-sitters in contempt. Mr Shea, once my hero, seems to have adopted the Democrat party platform.

What a waste! Hopefully i have misjudged the situation and am wrong.

God bless

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Inventor of mRNA Vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD: "'Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance 'under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,' to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order'"

T his is what the inventor of mRNA vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD himself, reported about the vaccines: Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination." [https://mobile.twitter.com/RWMaloneMD/status/1462194727407730693]   Moreover, he goes even further and is quoting Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò's call for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance:   Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance “under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,” to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order." youtube.com Abp.
