Luther, Ecological Sin & Charlotte
Bring us in Good Ale
It is too bad the Catholic school, where I was teaching music for the past three years, has closed, because the middle school boys would be learning this delightful song,
Bring Us in Good Ale
, this very week.
A delightful diversion from the world of anti-Christian politicians and heretical clerics, and into the world of the Middle Ages, fallen but Catholic.
I hope to sing this song with Belloc and Chesterton some day -- but not too soon.
Here is the schedule for the Pope to celebrate Luther's mortal sins against the Faith? Duh?
Program of Pope’s Trip to Sweden
for Commemoration of Reformation
The program for Pope Francis’ Oct 31-Nov.1 trip to Sweden for the joint Lutheran-Catholic commemoration of the Reformation was published today.
The Pope will depart from Rome’s Fiumicino airport at 8.20 a.m. and will arrive at 11 a.m. at Malmö, where the official welcome will be held.
He will then pay a courtesy visit to the Swedish royal family in Lund.
He will participate in the joint ecumenical prayer in the Lutheran cathedral of Lund, and in the ecumenical event in the Malmö Arena, where he will conclude the day by meeting with the ecumenical delegations.
On Tuesday 1 November, at 9.30 a.m., he will celebrate Holy Mass in Malmö, after which he will transfer to the city’s airport for the official farewell ceremony.
At 12.45 p.m. he will depart on his return flight, and is expected to arrive at Rome’s Ciampino airport at 3.30 p.m.

I thought you would be glad to know that Francis is finally admitting that sin exists. Yes, the Pope called global warming a serious sin against creation and he wants "Christians" to "resist it."
He wrote the message on September 1 as he called on the faithful to join forces to protect the earth on what is the ecumenically designated "World Day of Prayer for Creation."
“To commit a crime against the natural world is a sin against ourselves and a sin against God,” the pope wrote.
The “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation” is a global initiative that began in 1989 under the Schismatic leadership. It wasn’t until last year that the Catholic Church formally joined the initiative, with a letter from Francis establishing it.
He also could not resist bringing up the immigrants, saying that climate change was a factor in "contributing to the heart-rending refugee crisis."
And, of course, a word about the need for Catholics to ask for forgiveness for past and present religious intolerance, “as well as for injustice towards Jews, women, indigenous peoples, immigrants, the poor and the unborn.”
Oh yes, a few words also on the culture of consumerism and prosperity and a condemnation of the capitalist system.
It is the same old socialist-communist litany that has replaced the traditional Catholic litanies to Our Lady and the Saints.
Instead of “Have mercy on us” and “Pray for us” the new refrain is “Let us repent of the harm we are doing to our common home”
Charlotte, Ferguson & Soros
The Trump-Clinton debate deviated public attention from a point I want to stress. It is that the riots in Charlotte are following an agenda that was prepared before-hand by a leftist oligarchy.
The key-figure of this oligarchy is George Soros, but he is not the only one.
They are all trying to push our country into a civil war based on an artificially orchestrated racism.
I am sending you an article that exposes the plot. Read it, please, and pass it on.
Who Is Behind The Riots?
Charlotte Police Says 70% of Arrested Protesters Had Out Of State IDs
Sep 23, 2016 - Confirming what many had suspected when viewing the sudden and intense collapse into anarchy that occurred in Charlotte this week, Todd Walther, spokesman for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Fraternal Order of Police told CNN's Erin Burnett:
"This is not Charlotte that's out here. These are outside entities that are coming in and causing these problems. These are not protestors, these are criminals."
"We've got the instigators that are coming in from the outside. They were coming in on buses from out of state. If you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night. I can about say probably 70% of those had out-of-state IDs. They're not coming from Charlotte."
As shocking as this statement is, it should not be a total surprise. 18 months ago, as the riots flared in Ferguson, there was one man pulling the strings of this 'domestic false flag'... George Soros. In an apparent effort to "keep the media’s attention on the city and to widen the scope of the incident to focus on interrelated causes – not just the over-policing and racial discrimination narratives that were highlighted by the news media in August," liberal billionaire George Soros donated $33million to social justice organizations which helped turn events in Ferguson from a local protest into a national flashpoint.
The Washington Times
There’s a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it’s not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It’s not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets.
Rather, it’s liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by non-profit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org.
Mr. Soros spurred the Ferguson protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to interviews with key players and financial records reviewed by The Washington Times.
Still not buying it? As
The New American
recently reported, Ken Zimmerman, the director of U.S. programs at Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF), denied last year that Soros had funded BLM, saying it was just a rumor.
That was before hackers with DCLeaks.com published OSF documents showing that the Soros group had already given at least $650,000 directly to BLM.
Those same documents reveal the reason for OSF bankrolling BLM: the “dismantling” of America so that it can be recast according to the vision of Soros and his leftist cohorts.
The communist-on-its-face nature of these and other demands of the organizations under the BLM umbrella are a clear indicator of the real intent of BLM. The deep-pocketed funding by the likes of Soros, the Center for American Progress, the Ford Foundation, and Borealis Philanthropy show that BLM is the means, not the end.
BLM is little more than a tool of social revolutionaries hell-bent on destroying America so they can build their long awaited dystopia which they attempt to pass off as a utopia.
So with Hillary's poll numbers declining rapidly, and a debate looming that she would desperately like to be focused on domestic division as opposed to every email, pay-to-play, foreign policy misstep, and cough or stumble she has taken; is anyone shocked that 'out of state' protesters would turn up in Charlotte suddenly turning a peaceful but angry protest into tear-gas-filled deadly riots?
And who is a big donor to Clinton? George Soros: $7 million
