‘Indecent Photos,’ Abortion & Jefferson
Remove Indecent Photos!
Regarding the photo on your website at the link Benedict's Fans Tattoo their Lower Backs:
What were you thinking? That photo is obviously indecent and should not have been put on your site. Talk about undermining your credibility.
That the same site that publishes all the material by Marian Horvat relating to proper manners, decorum, dress, morals, etc. would publish such an inappropriate photograph defies logic.
My hope is that this is just a temporary lapse of prudence.
Thank you for the good lesson on morals. It is always edifying to see a person duly concerned about morality in such a filthy century like ours.
TIA has affirmed Catholic Morals on every possible occasion. A brief visit to our pages on Morals, Catholic Virtues and Forgotten Truths, along with the pages on good customs, formation and manners that you mentioned suffices to prove this.
When we expose indecent procedures of the conciliar Popes, progressivist Bishops and clergy, we do so not to indulge in any licentiousness, as you seem to suppose. We do so to prove how complacent these religious authorities have become with immorality. In short, we expose those authorities to resist them and to invite others to a healthy resistance.
We believe that this is an effective way to fight Progressivism. We give you a practical example: Some years ago, we placed various photos of John Paul II with naked natives on our site. We received complaints that those photos were too graphic. We left them posted to show who JPII was. Today, many people on the internet are familiar with those photos and are vaccinated not to accept JPII as a blessed (here and here), as Benedict XVI will impose upon all Catholics on May 1, if God does not prevent him from doing so.
Now, if we were to follow the advice of persons like you, our readers would not be prepared to defend themselves against this great fraud - the pretended sanctity of Pope Woytyla. So, those who asked us to take off those photos, conscious or unconsciously, were trying to cover for Wojtyla’s scandals.
When a lawyer in a courtroom describes details of the sexual humiliation suffered by a victim of a pedophile priest, he is not doing so to promote immorality or induce the members of the jury to sin. He is showing the terrible extent of the crime and asking for justice. If someone in the name of morality would try to stop the lawyer from exposing those excesses, he could well be suspected of complicity by covering for the guilty priest.
This is our simple logic: In order to protect the morality we love, we expose the excesses of immorality tacit or explicitly approved by the religious authorities who should be safeguarding Catholic Morals.
In the specific case of those photos you mentioned, we are showing the great complacency of the religious authorities who organize WYDs and allow those manifestations of support for Benedict XVI.
So, if you do not have an agenda and are sincere in your complaint, but cannot see those pictures without having problems of purity, please, do not look at those photos. They are indeed strong. However, if you can transcend those problems, you will witness the extreme moral abyss into which Progressivism has dragged the Catholic Church. You will be invited to follow the passion of our Holy Mother Church and fight for her.
We hope this elucidation may calm your indignant concerns.

Forty Million Babies
It's a wonderful life... for those allowed to join us !!!
Legalized abortion was the result of a scam. Lawyers deceived the Supreme Court with a rape case of a woman who was never raped AND never actually aborted her child. To keep the deception going, the FOLA (friends of legalized abortion) lied to young women the world over that the 'stuff' growing in their womb was not a human being but simply a bunch of cells.
The popular film It's a Wonderful Life is a great example of how we really do have a unique position in the lives of many people. What an emptiness resulted when George Bailey was erased from Bedford Falls.
With over forty million babies erased over the past 40 years, isn't the question "My God, what have we done" valid?
Of course, those in the FOLA camp might infer that we might have eliminated murderers and rapists, not just do-gooders. Well... that is certainly possible...and... an odd claim since the FOLA are the most successful murderers of all time!!! (no arrests, no convictions!!!)
Since 99% of us are not criminals, I'd say their claim lacks merit. In all reality, 99% of our babies handed over to the abortionists would have been good American citizens - with the rights of Americans - Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness. Since the FOLA said "NO" to the first right, 'Life'... we'll never get to meet these 'missing' George Baileys'.
Jefferson, Not Friend of Catholics
Maybe TIA will help get the word out that Thomas Jefferson is NOT our hero.
Please, Catholic tea-party-ers, stop referring to Thomas Jefferson as a great “Christian” and quoting him like he is a champion of Christian civilization. He was a Deist, and did not trust or like the Catholic Church.
He wrote: "History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government." (Letter to Alexander von Humboldt, December 6, 1813)
And, "In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own." (Letter to Horatio G. Spafford, March 17, 1814)
He would not be on the side of the restoration of a Catholic society and civilization.
Thanks for your great site, especially the History page and Organic Society.
You have published a letter by an annoyed Hindu. Please be aware that such "annoyed Hindus" are usually the paid internet scrutineers of various Hindu fundamentalist organizers. These people post on various forums across the net. I have recognized such postings even on conservative Catholic sites.
Please also understand their mentality. The fact that you have posted their item will be taken by them as an admission of wrongdoing on your part and will be used to justify any "retaliatory" action they may deem necessary.
