Maduro's Troops "'are Killing the Indigenous on their Land'" as Tribal Leaders flee facing "'War... Orders to Fire at us'""

The Guardian reported that Nicolas Maduro's troops on Friday opened gunfire on protesters injuring many indigenous people and "killed a Pemon [indigenous] woman, Zoraida Rodriguez, after pro-opposition [indigenous] protesters tried to stop their convoy passing."

Cartographer Salomon Martinez traveling with with Pemon injured because "several of his relatives were hit" said:

"We want the world to know what is happening, that the blood of Venezuelan people is being spilled and the government is trying to hide it... They are killing the Indigenous on their land."
(The Guardian, "'Venezuelan blood is being spilled': tensions flares near border with Brazil," February 24, 2019)

The article reported that three people "were killed and more than 20 injured" as the Pemon tribal leaders are fleeing for their lives. "Candy, a leader of the indigenous Pemon Territorial Guard, told the Guardian":

"I am protecting the mayor and indigenous leaders... This flight into the forest isn't some kind of protest. It's war that they launched, they have orders to fire at us, whoever we are."

"I don't know if we are equipped to face them. And they want the mayor (of Gran Santana) dead or alive, they have given the order."

Moreover, in another incident "outside the Roraima base," the prominent Venezuelan human rights organization "Foro Penal, said it believed four people were killed. The opposition described the bloodshed as a massacre" according to the Guardian.

I am from New Mexico, my grandmother was indigenous, my DNA test shows I am more than 25℅ indigenous, and it makes my blood boil to see the international community and Pope Francis just standing by in silence as indigenous people or any people are being hunted down on their own land.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church, the safety of the Pemon people and that the Maduro tyranny be ended.

OPEN LETTER TO TAYLOR MARSHALL

Dr. Marshall, for many of us (myself included), your podcasts have been a source of enlightenment, entertainment, and—quite frankly—hope, during this very dark time in the history of the Church.  As someone who studied his way into the Catholic Faith, having the grace and the integrity to acknowledge the necessity of conversion from the Protestant sect to which you formerly belonged, you have not been content to rest on your laurels but have “put yourself out there,” launching the New Saint Thomas Institute and discussing current events sub luce aeternitatis.  Your willingness to deal with things the way they are, and not the way they would be if we were all painted on holy cards already, is refreshing and appreciated.
Accordingly, I am writing to you today in regard to your recent statements about being “open” to the idea that Jorge Bergoglio is not actually the pope.  For a person in your position, so much as admitting that possibility must require all the grace and integrity you h…

Our Lady of Good Success: Is Pope Benedict the "Prisoner in the Vatican... in that Greatest Crisis of the Church"?

The apparitions of Our Lady of Success have been approved by the Catholic Church. Moreover, Our Lady of Good Success has had many miracles associated with it.

Here is part of the "Fourth Apparition: January 21, 1610" which the influencial and prominent Catholic blogger Laramie Hirsch believes may possibly be referring to Pope Benedict XVI:

"The Supreme Shepherd and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, being a prisoner in the Vatican... in that greatest crisis of the Church, he who is obligated to speak in due time will remain silent."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.


Sex-abuse Worldview Vs. Christian Worldview

By Fred Martinez

Professor Allan Bloom, a philosopher who wrote "The Closing of the American Mind," thought that Friedrich Nietzsche was the father of modern America. He said, "Words such as 'charisma,' 'lifestyle,' 'commitment,' 'identity,' and many others, all of which can easily be traced to Nietzsche ... are now practically American slang."

But the most important Nietzschean slang word is "values."

"Values" are the death of Christian morality because values simply mean opinions. If opinion is how things are decided, then might makes right.

One must remember that whenever someone talks about values in modern America – family values or religious values or place-the-blank-in-front-of values – they are saying there is no real or objective right or wrong – only opinions of the self and its will to power.

Nietzsche's philosophy is summed up by Bloom as

Commitment values the values and makes them valuable. Not love…
