Frenetic Pope, Bathrooms & Good PM
New Title for Obama
Due to his amoral logic and his choice of people on his team, I now refer to Obama as: Lord of the Flies.
We thought you might be interested in an example of how ugly tastes have become. Below are two pictures of an ugly house somewhere in Los Angeles County.
We passed it on Friday coming back from my doctor’s appointment.
Frenetic Papal Gestures
If I am not mistaken, a man who waves his hands frenetically the way Pope Francis does in the video below is taken by a frenzied or hysteric desire to please his audience.
I would say he has a kind of delirium for applause. “Applaud me, applaud me, applaud me,” is what he seems to be begging the people around him.
It does not show a great deal of virtue, as one would expect from a Vicar of Christ…
& Women in Separate Bathrooms
Dear Tradition in Action,
The homosexual community is moving to its next battle following its victory on ‘marriage’ in the U.S. Supreme Court. Now they are trying to force the subject of gender neutral bathrooms.
One of the supporting arguments made by the homosexual partisans is that gender separate bathrooms did not appear until the late 19th century. This historical ‘fact’ is being spread by nearly ever proponent of the homosexual position, but I suspect that there is significant historical context being neglected.
Basically, what I want to know is whether or not it is true that separated bathrooms did not appear until the late 19th century simply because there were actually no situations where men and women would be sharing bathrooms. A factory that employed all women, for example, would not technically have separated bathrooms because there was no other gender to share them with. Likewise a Victorian office building could have no separated bathrooms because the workers were all male.
I would like more information on this argument. Having seen so much historical fraud perpetrated by so-called ‘academics,’ I am suspicious that the fact of not having the need for separate bathrooms is being warped into an ‘historical fact’ to suit the homosexual agenda.
If this is the case, then, it is necessary, absolutely necessary, that we expose this fraud. We must take every opportunity to combat this madness before further insanity is perpetrated against the laws of God and nature.
Your suppositions regarding public restrooms are well founded. Indeed, there were no separate public bathrooms until the 19th century for the simple fact that women were not in the public workplace.
However, as women began to engage in factory work, it was deemed necessary to have separate bathroom facilities for them. Before the end of the 19th century, there were laws in many States that required this. By the 1920s, 43 American States had legislature mandating such facilities.
In the mid-19th century there were more public places where women began to frequent, such as theaters, public parks, department stores. Public toilet facilities to accommodate ladies took into consideration their obvious need for modesty and separation from men. It was not just a matter of hygiene and convenience that called for separate facilities; these requirements were based primarily on morality, to protect the modesty of women and girls. It is Natural Law that dictates such norms. We find this separation in every civilization that rises above the barbarian.
What we are looking at with the modern demand for gender-neutral bathrooms is a change in morals, a new morality that is no longer based on God’s Commandments and the norms of Christian Civilization.
The revolutionary man with his acceptance of every perversion wants to eliminate the men’s and ladies’ rooms because this sends the symbolic message that there are two sexes, male and female, as God made us. This message is unacceptable to the homosexual movement, which is forcing acceptance of persons who are homosexual, transsexual, transgender, intersexual – you name it – pretending that these groups should have “equal rights” and even special privileges.
In the end, it is a moral question, not an historical interpretation. But, even taken from the latter approach, one finds that from the Jews to early Christians and throughout the Middle Ages until the modern era, care was always taken to preserve the modesty and virtue of women.

Hungarian Prime Minister & Immigration
This is an article I thought was important. Since I am a Hungarian married to an American, it makes me happy to know Hungary is not dead yet. I am proud of him, but I believe Victor Orban's life is in danger. I heard he has made many enemies.
In his speech against mass immigration, he said: “We must therefore drag the ancient virtue of courage out from under the silt of oblivion. First of all we must put steel in our spines.” Luminous and lapidary words shining like a spotlight out of the gloom.
On March 15, 2016, at Hungary's National Museum, the Hungarian Prime Minister gave this historic speech that was largely ignored or distorted by the establishment press. Throughout, Orban called on Europeans to unite against the threat coming from the European Union headquartered in Brussels.
An article in
reports his statements:
The question, he said, is whether Europeans will live as slaves or free men. And as such, it is time for the people of Europe's nations to summon the courage needed to confront “Brussels’ fanatical internationalism,” or to be crushed by it, he added.
Orban noted that freedom in Europe was already being crushed, and that globalist schemers in Brussels were plotting to destroy nation-states on the road toward an illegitimate “United States of Europe.”
The so-called “refugee crisis,” he said, is a gigantic lie — most of the arrivals are not actual refugees, and humanitarianism is not the agenda of the globalist conspirators. Instead, the engineered crisis is a tool of sinister forces plotting to destroy Western civilization while undermining Christianity and nation states.
He previously lambasted those responsible for creating and exploiting the immigration tidal wave as a “treasonous conspiracy” that is using the crisis to achieve what it failed to accomplish through political means.
While vowing to offer protection for real refugees, Orban also warned that tens of millions of people in the Third World were preparing to start heading for Europe, largely for economic or religious reasons, and that action to stop the invasion was both crucial and urgent. Everything the West holds dear is facing mortal danger from this, Orban said. The real threat, though, is at EU headquarters in Brussels, he emphasized. And it must be dealt with. That begins with speaking the truth.
In a speech that may go down in history as a crucial turning point, Orban told Hungarians: “Today Europe is as fragile, weak and sickly as ‘a flower being eaten away by a hidden worm.' ” He added: “Europe is not free. Because freedom begins with speaking the truth.”
Today, he explained, it is forbidden across much of Europe to speak the truth. “It is forbidden to say that those arriving are not refugees, but that Europe is threatened by migration,” he said. “It is forbidden to say that tens of millions are ready to set out in our direction. It is forbidden to say that immigration brings crime and terror to our countries. It is forbidden to point out that the masses arriving from other civilizations endanger our way of life, our culture, our customs and our Christian traditions.”
It is also forbidden to point out that those immigrants who have already arrived are building up a separate world for themselves, with its own laws and ideals, that is
tearing apart the thousand-year-old structure of Europe, he continued.
"It is forbidden to point out that this is not an accidental and unintentional chain of consequences, but a pre-planned and orchestrated operation; a mass of people directed towards us,” said Orban, whose popularity across Hungary and the EU has soared amid the crisis.
“It is forbidden to say that in Brussels they are concocting schemes to transport foreigners here as quickly as possible and to settle them here among us.” It is also forbidden to speak about the real agenda behind what is happening, which Orban, displaying courage that is almost entirely absent today among Europe's ruling classes, has been boldly exposing.
“It is forbidden to point out that the purpose of settling people here is to reshape the religious and cultural landscape of Europe, and to re-engineer its ethnic foundations – thereby eliminating the last barrier to internationalism: the nation-states,” he said, pointing out the fact that globalists are working to crush nationhood and national sovereignty on the road to what they often call their New World Order.
“It is forbidden to say that Brussels is now stealthily devouring more and more slices of our national sovereignty, and that in Brussels many are now making a plan for a United States of Europe – for which no one has ever given authorization.”
