Veils, Confederate Flag & ‘Gay’ Scouts



Bravo to Braving the Enemies of the Church!


Dear TIA,

Salve Maria!

The article How the Vice of the Jews Influences... is a wonderful explanation of Atila’s latest book, and a tremendous eye-opener for every Catholic, for we need to know from whence all this evil came.

Thank you, Margaret Galitzin, for your clear and engaging review; and thank you, Atila Guimaraes, for another hard-won book and victory for the Counter-Revolution.

     In Maria,

     C.C.

Colors of Veils for Women

Dear TIA,

Should particular colors of veils be worn according to one’s state in life? What would be the proper colors for an unmarried girl and for a married woman?

Thank you!

TIA responds:

Dear A.F.,

In Catholic countries, the tradition is that unmarried women, young or old, use white veils to symbolize their virginity and married women use black veils to symbolize their chastity within marriage.

Pharisaic Poverty


TIA,

Re: The demagogic poverty of Pope Bergoglio

Here's the lie that struck me:

Bergoglio's shirt sleeve within the threadbare cassock looks quite new, starched and pressed.

Which layer of clothing truly represents the real Bergoglio – the inner or the outer man?

(Reminds me of something our Lord said to the Scribes and Pharisees in an inside-out way.)

The Confederate Flag & ‘Northern’ Aggression


Dear TIA,

I have to admit my ignorance regarding the relatively recent media push for the removal of Confederate flags. I tend to believe that this push is really the backdrop for a push to remove our nation's own flag from moments and such, since the argument against the display of the Confederate flag can be extended to the flag of the United States, as even in the North, slavery still existed, among other things. The endgame may be for the "First-World" Nations to give up their idea of flag and thus nation. Do you think this issue with the Confederate flag is a "trial balloon"? That is, the powers that be are watching for our reaction to it.

At one time, being a Northener and even having New England roots, I too disdained the Confederacy and grew up believing in the Confederate Flag as "racist". Learning of the Catholic history in the South and Pope Pius IX's support of Jefferson Davis, I have come to admire the Confederacy and the South's hierarchal, aristocratic culture.

I was wondering what your take is on all this, since I usually rely on TIA's staff and contributors for keen analysis on U.S. and World events from the proper Catholic perspective.

     Yours truly,

     M.R.

TIA responds:

Dear M.R.,

Thank you for the confidence you have in our opinion. Your words are encouraging for us to continue our daily work of updates trying to give a good formation to our readers.

The attack against the Confederate Flag can well be a trial balloon, as you say.

The American flag made into underwear and clothes
Many initiatives have been taken in order to destroy America as a Nation. The American flag, for example, has been dishonored for decades when Americans, encouraged by propaganda, use the American colors in shirts, skirts, Bermudas, shoes and even underclothing. This process helps to destroy the flag as a symbol, and thus the United States, which is symbolized by the flag.

Today, there are also direct attacks against the flag. Recently we received from one of our readers a video with some footage of a petition drive in San Diego, California, that calls for changing the American flag and replacing it with another that has a pyramid and rainbow stripes.

Regarding the prohibitions to use the Confederate Flag in Virginia and in California, we believe they are unjust acts. The Southern States have their own history, are proud of it and should have the right to display their symbols wherever they want. State and Federal laws should protect it. Those who admire the Confederacy and what it truly stood for (States' rights vs. overweening federal power) should have the same right.

The attributions of “racist” and “pro-slavery” to the South and the identification of the Confederate flag with “racism” – which are the pretexts given to make these prohibitions – are myths that TIA plans to address as soon as we have some spare time.

     Cordially,

‘Gay’ Scouts

Dear TIA,

I believe it is time to leave the boy scouts if you have not yet done so. Indeed, now they not only allow homosexual leaders, but are promoting the homosexual agenda by participating in the “Gay Pride Parade” in San Francisco last month, as you can see in the photo below.

I am also sending you a news report that tells the story.

Sorry. I thought it was a good organization.

It seems that almost nothing can resist the growing tide of immorality and sins against nature. Well, when we have a “gay” President and a Supreme Court that mandates same-sex marriage, what should we expect from the rest?

I read your site daily. Thank you for the good work.

     Sincerely,

     C.M.

The BSA's National Executive Board will decide on July 27

An executive committee for Boy Scouts of America unanimously voted to get rid of the organization’s ban on gay adult leaders and volunteers on Monday, paving the way for the organization to become as inclusive for adults as it now is for youth.

The Scouts’ National Executive Board, which governs the body, will now vote on the resolution on July 27, and their decision will go into effect immediately, according to activist group Scouts for Equality.

In addition to allowing gay or bisexual adults to work and volunteer in the BSA, the resolution allows previously removed leaders to apply for their former positions. It also allows each individual troop or unit to determine its own eligibility policies concerning gay leaders, while blocking non-troop organizations and regional governing bodies from discriminating against volunteers or employees on the basis of sexual orientation. The BSA board lifted the ban on openly gay youth serving in the program on January 1 2014.

“For decades, the Boy Scouts of America’s ban on gay adults has stood as a towering example of explicit, institutional homophobia in one of America’s most important and recognizable civic organizations,” Zach Wahls, an Eagle Scout and the Executive Director of Scouts for Equality, said in a statement. “While this policy change is not perfect—BSA’s religious chartering partners will be allowed to continue to discriminate against gay adults—it is difficult to overstate the importance of today’s announcement.”
