On Bishop Williamson’s Second Apology

February 27, 2009

Bishop Williamson has apologized again, inappropriately in my view, for the shock and awe campaign that has come as a response to his public expression of his thoughts on certain elements of “Holocaust” doctrine. In fact, the responsibility for the calamitous, altogether disconnected and disproportionate reaction of this past month lies squarely on the rabbis and Judaic power-brokers and their accomplices in governments, in the media, in the curia and in the parishes directly involved in it; a reaction which has all of the proportion and justice of the December 2008 Gaza massacre. I disagree with the suggestion that a few words spoken by the Bishop are the cause of all this. Let’s not validate the absurd notion that lynch-mob behavior is a normal or acceptable, inevitable response to controversy and that Catholics must tailor their words, nay, their thoughts, to forestall it.

What is most disconcerting about Bp. Williamson’s apology, however, is the closing line: “As the Holy Father has said, every act of unjust violence against one man hurts all mankind.” HERE

This is a clear reference to Benedict’s shameful Holocaust sermon of January 28th, 2008 where he proclaimed, “May the Shoah be for all a warning against forgetfulness, against denial or reductionism, because the violence against a single human being is violence against all.” HERE

I don’t care to speculate on the motivations behind Bp. Williamson’s adoption of Bendict’s foreign language from his recent “Holocaust” sermon [see footnote]. I am also bewildered by Bishop Fellay’s reported adoption of the “elder brothers” language on the lips of every crypto-rabbi in Rome today. This is not consistent with the SSPX message which has it that the society intends to bring Rome to Tradition. These statements, if taken at face value, indicate a new synthesis produced by this recent “Holocaust” debacle sending the SSPX off its stated course considerably.

If the price of admission into dialog with Rome on the errors of the Vatican II Council is adopting Rome’s strange language and ideas concerning the “elder brothers” it would seem to be a case of straining out a gnat while swallowing a camel in my estimation–not worth it; a deal the Archbishop would have scoffed at.

I warn that the rabbis would not be satisfied, nor do I believe that Rome would grant “full communion,” until “Rabbi Larry” and his cronies are preaching Holocaustolatry in SSPX schools and seminaries as they already do in Novus Ordo schools and seminaries HERE. Apologies from “Holocaust deniers” (who the rabbis, madmen that they are, place on par with the perpetrators of “The Holocaust”) are inconsequential. There is no forgiveness for them. The only acceptable reparation is that they be imprisoned, cast out, or otherwise silenced, but more importantly, that their followers subsequently be mindbombed with Holocaust dogma. Benedict’s elder brother, Rabbi Arthur Schneier proclaimed as much at the Vatican last week:

“… how can we but revolt at Holocaust-denial? Victims of the Holocaust have not given us the right to forgive the perpetrators nor the Holocaust deniers … we must transmit “never again” through Holocaust education to future generations …”

Pope and Pharisees Preach More Holocaustolatry

A spokesperson for Yad Vashem has stated the same in response to Bishop Williamson’s apology:

“The millions of Jews that were murdered in the Holocaust and the survivors who were persecuted are not waiting for [Bp. Williamson’s] apology,” said Iris Rosenberg, spokeswoman of the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in Jerusalem. “If he is looking to repent, he needs to admit that he was wrong in denying the truth. This is much more important to the people he claims to lead.

What is important to Yad Vashem is not an apology from Bishop Williamson, but conforming the minds of his followers to “Holocaust” dogma, and Yad Vashem has many accomplices in Rome who have already made “Holocaust” dogma standard curriculum in Novus Ordo Catholic schools and seminaries. A true traditional Catholic alternative to their kosher schools and seminaries is not acceptable to them.

Have no doubt, as the Vatican currently stands, this is what “full communion” entails.

My prayers are with the SSPX leadership. I cannot imagine the pressure that’s upon them.

Footnote: Benedict stated, “violence committed against any one single human being is violence against all humanity. No man is an island, a well known poet once wrote.” That poet is Anglican priest, John Donne who was steeped in the Pantheism, Hermeticism, and Kabbalism of the Renaissance, but the concept Benedict draws on is actually founded in Babylonian Talmud, tractate Sanhedrin 37a and applies only to “Jews:” “Whosoever destroys a single soul of Israel, scripture imputes [guilt] to him as if he had destroyed a complete world.” Contrary to what Talmud suggests, this idea is not found in biblical Scripture.

Palestinian Christians Urge Pope to Not Lend Credibility and Prestige to Israeli Slaughterers

February 23, 2009

The Israeli state, just having perpetrated a massive, barbaric assault on defenseless people deprived of basic life necessities before and afterward, is in dire need of an image boost. Benedict XVI plans to accommodate them. If he makes this planned trip, which does not include a visit to the Israeli-savaged Gaza territory, he will rightly share in Israeli infamy.

Palestinian Christians urge Pope to call off May visit to Israel

Haaretz

A group of Palestinian Christians has asked Pope Benedict XVI to call off his planned visit to Israel and the West Bank this coming May.

The 40 community activists wrote to the pope that his visit would “help boost Israel’s image and inadvertently minimize Palestinian suffering under Israeli occupation.”

The Ancient Origins of Blasphemous Israeli Comedy

February 21, 2009

Witnesses of the persecution of Bishop Williamson in response to his publicly expressed doubts towards elements of establishment-promulgated “Holocaust” lore may now begin to realize that what’s taking place is not a mere dispute over historical matters but an inquisition; an enforcement of dogma by Church/Synagogue and State force.

The dogmatic nature of the issue was manifested in the recent Israeli comedy blaspheming the Christian dogma of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. A translated transcript of that blasphemy can be read HERE. What’s most interesting about this particular example of common Judaic ridicule of Christian belief is how the comedian framed it:

We will talk about the “Vatican” the Christian church. It’s annoying really annoying … Every time, new one denies the holocaust, cardinals, archbishops, priests, monks, or choir-boy … They are denying the Holocaust and instead of getting angry, I decided to hit back … to deny the Christianity … I am not laughing, that’s true, and I am not laughing. Some one have to teach them a lesson and that is what we will do … Believe me, really believe me that if they didn’t deny the Holocaust I wouldn’t say anything, and I wouldn’t tell them the truth because I don’t care about them … But there is limits, believe me there is …

“The Holocaust” is a matter of religious dogma, and EVERYONE is expected to assent their will to this dogma. To deny is a terrible crime that cries out to the rabbis and their helpers for vengeance.

This is how an Israeli comedian qualified his public airing of a normally hushed, millenia-old Judaic tradition of ridicule of Christian belief in the incarnation of Christ in the womb of the Virgin Mary : “You goyim made me ridicule your Yoshke and harlot Miriam because you deny our Holocaust!” But if you bought that absurd line, you’ve been taken for a ride. This comedian has, in fact, thrown together an uncreative rehash of a Judaic tradition which originated at least 1800 years ago–millenia before “The Holocaust” and at a time when Christians were under severe persecution, at times instigated or directly perpetrated by Judaics. The earliest recorded example of this particular blasphemy related to the Virgin Mary is in the Church Father Origen’s Contra Celsus: which was written around 248 A.D. as a refutation of a book written by Celsus about 60 years earlier:

But let us now return to where the Jew [whom Celsus cites] is introduced, speaking of the mother of Jesus, and saying that “when she was pregnant she was turned out of doors by the carpenter to whom she had been betrothed, as having been guilty of adultery, and that she bore a child to a certain soldier named Panthera;” and let us see whether those who have blindly concocted these fables about the adultery of the Virgin with Panthera, and her rejection by the carpenter, did not invent these stories to overturn His miraculous conception by the Holy Ghost: for they could have falsified the history in a different manner, on account of its extremely miraculous character, and not have admitted, as it were against their will, that Jesus was born of no ordinary human marriage. It was to be expected, indeed, that those who would not believe the miraculous birth of Jesus would invent some falsehood. (Origen, Contra Celsus, 1;32)

http://www.newadvent.org/fathers/04161.htm

Even amateur researchers of Judaism will immediately recognize this Judaic fable recorded by Origen around 248 A.D. (citing Celsus’ account of the fable which dates to around 190 A.D.) as part of what later came to be known as the Toledoth Yeshu, a tradition of Judaism which is not canonical but which is so pervasive to Judaic culture that most people of Judaic descent are more familiar with it than the particulars of the canonical texts of Judaism. This theme recurs constantly in books and films produced by “secular Jews.” Elements of this blasphemy and much worse are found in the canonical texts of Judaism, however, and thoroughly documented in Judaism Discovered.

The Benedict XVI Vatican uncharacteristically issued a mild condemnation of this “Israel”-televised blasphemy of Jesus Christ and the Blessed Mother HERE, but this is to laugh. Where is the condemnation of the source of this comedian’s blasphemy: the teachings and traditions of his elder brother rabbis? Catholics have been condemning these same Judaic blasphemies since at least 200 A.D. (Tertullian, De spectaculis, ch. 30) HERE, but not this pope. To his credit, the bishop of Jerusalem issued a statement calling this incident, “a symptom of greater problems disturbing the society, such as intolerance, refusal to accept and respect the other and inherent hatred.”

http://www.zenit.org/article-25143?l=english

This gets a bit closer to the truth. Rabbinic Judaism and the Judaic culture it has shaped is inherently hateful towards Jesus and Christians. The bishop of Jerusalem would likely be an eyewitness to the hatred of Judaism in practice, ie. spitting at Christians, crosses, etc.

Such is the basis for Benedict’s ever increasing religious relations with his elder brothers.
