In which we discuss depravity, the loss of faith, and the manipulations of kings. The silencing of the gospel, and try not to go down a conspiracy theory rabbit hole. One of the sobering things over the last few years, as Julian Assage dumped information on how our phones and social media spy on us, is that those who say “I am being spied upon” are the ones who are correct.
And the corruption of our church. It is not merely the elite who have fallen, but those who should tend the flock. Mundabor is not talking about mere fornication between two adults, but going into the slums for rough trade — exploiting those who cannot speak: who are easily silenced.
When the church is corrupt, the love of God has gone from the bishops and cardinals. They are left with their lovers and their virtue signals.
I suspect of homosexuality every priest, Bishop or Cardinal who puts social work at the centre of his “pastoral” activity, and so should you. They do this, certainly, in order to create a diversion from their loss of faith and from their betrayal of the Church, earning th eeasy applause of the world and ready-made career opportunities; but more often than not, they do this in order to find prey among the “dispossessed”.
McCorrick actually was even happy (and dumb enough, in retrospect) to assault his own seminarians instead of going lookin gin the “peripheries”; but this only shows what a scoundrel he is, not that the method does not work, or that he has himself not used it.
In this time, Mattnew reads like the websites that discuss the manipulation of the West and Russia, so that they fight. Or those who promote Putin or Trump as a saviour, a God Emperor, and not in jest. No one thinks this way about Merkel, May, Macron, Ardern Trudeau or Turnbull. Though Trudeau shows the secular pattern: if a man calls himself a feminist look for his predation.
And in our sins, our love of God has grown cold.
1As Jesus came out of the temple and was going away, his disciples came to point out to him the buildings of the temple. 2Then he asked them, “You see all these, do you not? Truly I tell you, not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.”
3When he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” 4Jesus answered them, “Beware that no one leads you astray. 5For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah!’ and they will lead many astray. 6And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet. 7For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places: 8all this is but the beginning of the birthpangs.
9“Then they will hand you over to be tortured and will put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of my name. 10Then many will fall away, and they will betray one another and hate one another. 11And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. 12And because of the increase of lawlessness, the love of many will grow cold. 13But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 14And this good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the world, as a testimony to all the nations; and then the end will come.
But there are those who want the current situation to continue. Who would Ban Christ for saying that the stones of the temple would be cast down — which Vespasian began, and Titus finished. Who regulate the most common places of discussion. And then are concerned that people look to the nastier parts of the net, for there is some truth there.
Or those who speak about the less convenient genocides.
Because it was one of the last mediums of truly free-speech online. Much like the Newsgroups of a bygone internet age, 4chan was a rowdy, unruly bastion of free speech organized by topic of interest. Often referred to as the “underbelly of the internet” (usually by those who don’t understand the culture), anyone could come here and say exactly what they wanted – unlike on regulated, policed, and sanitized platforms like Facebook, Twitter, etc. If some mouthbreathing goon working in spare storage a closet at Twitter doesn’t like your tweet for whatever reason, he can take it down, disable your account, and effectively silence you. And make no mistake, that kind of censorship was, and still is, rampant across these controlled platforms.
Not so on the chans. ANYONE can post and speak their mind. Because of this, you tend to get a crowd of people who not only have a thick skin, but have a certain kind of intellectual rigor not found among the general public.
(A final word of caution about the chans: While you can go there and seek out the relevant Q boards for yourself, I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re brand new to all this. On top of them being purposefully hard to use (in order to keep the “normies” out) you might end up seeing things you might otherwise not wish to see.
I don’t go to the chans. I read Neon Revolt, and some of Vox Day’s Dread Ilk, who follow this. I am skeptical: when the predictions they say come true, however, I pay attention.
But we have a duty. It is to endure. It is avoid the heckler’s veto, to be men. To not be sheep.
For Christ died for us. We are of great worth. There is much good we can do. Ignore those who would prevent this, would hide evil, and in their hubris try to regulate your thoughts.
Do not be them. Do not be like them.
