Canon 212's Walker is Exactly What is needed in our Effeminate, Whiny & Nice Francis Church

Canon 212's Frank Walker is exactly what is needed in our effeminate Francis Church. He is a crusty character with a heart of gold. He is a St. Jerome for our time.

The Okie Traditionalist apparently is a good man even though, today, he broadsided Walker.

The Okie speaks much truth, but he seems like many in the Church who prefer to whine instead of acting against the evils in the Church. He complained:

"Frankly (pun intended), I'm at a loss why much of the headlines are now written with added editorial flavor of a polemical and snarky tone.  Which I get doing about some headlines here and there, to leave your own mark on the story, but not most unless the theme of Canon 212 has changed from being an unbiased presentation of the news to a satirical editorial. Which would be fine that change has not been officially stated.   Or am I off in seeing a shift??"

"... I've wondered how Frank keeps all the details arranged in his mind every day to organize his topics.  But these last many months the headlines it seems have become top heavy and saturated about "The EvilFrancis Pontificate" to the point I personally wonder how long that focus can last without tiring readers."

It appeared to me that the comment by Dad29 was almost a perfect response to the complaining of the Okie:

"So you cure snark with psychobabble? Snark is actually one way of expressing cynicism. These days cynicism is warranted. Yes there are exceptions; sad to say they prove the rule."

"It occurs to me that if C212's headlines are that dispiriting one should stop reading it rather than whining about it. I don't agree with Frank's take on everything either, but he finds a lot of interesting stuff."
The only change I would make is to use a word related to snarky from Merriam- Webster's website which is passionate. Fatherly passion is what is most needed in our effeminate un-fatherly Francis Church.

A true physical or spiritual father when his children are abused or being lead on a destructive path will defend his children from the abusers or promoters of evil paths that will lead them to hell.

If he only cries because the children have been abused as Francis did with the Chilean sex abuse victims, but doesn't defend them from the priest sex abusers and the bishops who protect them then he is not acting like a man.

Francis showed he is effeminate by not having a manly and fatherly heart that is outraged by the evil of his spiritual children being sexually abused.

Francis is not behaving like Jesus Christ who declared:

"It were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his neck and he cast into the sea, than that he should scandalize one of these little ones."

Former federal investigator Leon J. Podles, Ph.D., thinks that the bishops don't behave like Jesus or even like men.

Being amazed at how bishops in the Church are effeminate, Podles wrote:

"Gilbert Kilman, a child psychiatrist, commented, 'What amazes me is the lack of outrage the church feels when its good work is being harmed. So, if there is anything the church needs to know, it needs to know how to be outraged.'"

"Mark Serrano confronted Bishop Frank Rodimer, asking why he had let his priest-friend Peter Osinski sleep with boys at Rodimer’s beach house while Rodimer was in the next bedroom: 'Where is your moral indignation?'”

"Rodimer’s answer was, 'Then I don’t get it. What do you want?' What Serrano wanted Rodimer to do was to behave like a man with a heart, a heart that is outraged by evil. But Rodimer couldn’t; his inability to feel outrage was a quality that had helped make him a bishop. He would never get into fights, never rock the boat, never 'divide' but only 'unify.'” [http://www.touchstonemag.com/archives/article.php?id=22-06-012-v]

Podles thinks the effeminate church began before Francis with John Paul II who showed sorrow like Francis, but never behaved like a man with a heart that was outraged at the evil. He failed to remove sex abusing high ranking clerics like Fr. Marcial Maciel:

"He [John Paul] publicly apologized for the errors of remote predecessors, but would not apologize for his own errors and the errors of the bishops he had appointed, errors in governing the Church that allowed the abuse to go on." [https://www.google.com/amp/s/billcork.wordpress.com/2007/12/13/review-of-leon-podles-sacrilege-sexual-abuse-in-the-catholic-church/amp/#ampshare=https://billcork.wordpress.com/2007/12/13/review-of-leon-podles-sacrilege-sexual-abuse-in-the-catholic-church/]

Benedict XVI was the last pope to act like a man. He confronted the sex abusers and the bishops who protected them.

He had a heart of a man and true spiritual father when he showed outrage and called them "filth." He removed the sex abuser Fr. Maciel and set up a system to remove predator priests and the bishops who protect them.

Podles shows this is how a true Catholic man and follower of Jesus Christ acts:

"Aquinas, too, says that 'lack of the passion of anger is also a vice' because a man who truly and forcefully rejects evil will be angry at it. The lack of anger makes the movement of the will against evil 'lacking or weak.' He quotes John Chrysostom: 'He who is not angry, whereas he has cause to be, sins. For unreasonable patience is the hotbed of many vices, it fosters negligence, and incites not only the wicked but the good to do wrong.'”  [http://www.touchstonemag.com/archives/article.php?id=22-06-012-v]

Unfortunately, Benedict's fatherly defense of abuse victims was "dismantled" as journalist Hilary White, on January 25, 2017 reported.

Francis "has all but completely dismantled" the "effective" reforms instituted against clerical sex abuse by Benedict:

"Benedict installed effective procedural reforms on clerical sex abuse; Francis... has all but completely dismantled or reversed those changes... Benedict 'had defrocked or suspended more than 800 priests for past sexual abuse between 2009 and 2012'... His reforms specifically included bishops who refused to act against priest-abusers... 'This Pope has removed two to three bishops per month'... These reforms - and - removals - have ceased entirely under Francis."
(Remnant, "Pope Francis Accused of Inaction in Notorious Sex Abuse Cases, January 25, 2017)

Francis has acted even more effeminate than the effeminate Cardinal Bernard Law who is the media face of bishops who protect predator priests. Here is a list:

 - Francis accused the victims of calumny. Law did not.

- Francis said he had not received any evidence about the sex abuse case when a member of his inner circle of nine Cardinals and chief adviser on sex abuse personally deliver a letter of evidence to him. Law never did anything close to this.

- A credible victim alleged that the bishop, Francis had defended, not only covered-up, but kissed the predator priest and watched the sex abuse which in effect is a form of sex abuse. Law never defended any priest who did such things.

- Imagine the outcry that John Paul II would have had if he defended Cardinal Law if a credible victim had alleged that Law had not only covered-up, but kissed the predator priest and watched the sex abuse which in effect is a form of sex abuse.

- Imagine the outraged that John Paul II would have had if his perfect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith who was Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was Francis's CDF perfect Archbishop Luis Ladaria Ferrer who was protected by Francis's Vatican from going to trial back on April 4, 2017 in France for "complicity in alleged cover-up" of paedophile priest Fr. Bernard Preynat. (Business Standard, "French cardinal, Vatican official to stand trial for paedophile cover-up," September 19, 2017)

- Over "1300 Catholics in Osorno [the diocese where Francis appointed Barros to be bishop], along with 30 diocesan priests, and 120 members of the Chilean Parliament sent a letter to Francis urging him to rescind the appointment of Bishop Barros."((Remnant, "Vatican Watch... So Much for Pope's Child Protection Commission," July 12, 2016). Francis called the Barros protesters "dumb." Law never did anything close to this.

- Francis overturned the Benedict XVI appointed CDF sex abuse ruling to bar Juan Barros from the office of bishop and then appointed him bishop of Osorno. Law never did anything close to this.

- Francis "has all but completely dismantled" the "effective" reforms instituted against clerical sex abuse by Benedict. Law never did anything close to this.

How does the nice Okie Traditionalist respond to these evils which don't even include the Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò accusations, Lettergate, the Chinese Vatican betrayal deal, the Bergoglio Argentine sex-abuse cover-ups dating to when he was a archbishop to the present Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta case and I could keep going?

He calls Walker snarky for pointing out these are evils.

It reminded me of when the nice Fr. Z whined about faithful Catholics.

Fr. Z, some months back, compared faithful Catholics fighting to save the Church to the pro-homosexual dissenter Michael Winters because they were not being nice to ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and his pro-gay bishop's network who cover-up sex abuse and are trying to destroy to Church.

Apparently, Fr. Z thinks the best way to end the greatest crisis in the history of the Church is to be nice.

According to him, it appeared back then, that it was nice to call for less money to be given to McCarrick's pro-gay bishops network who cover-up sex abuse, but apparently he didn't think it was nice to call for their removal from the episcopate and to be laicized.

Fr. Z even thought it might be nice for Francis, which the Catholic Monitor and others have presented evidence which show that he has been involved in cover-up, to appoint a canonical Special Prosecutor who would be under Francis's influence.

He probably doesn't think it's nice for McCarrick's pro-gay bishop network to be legally prosecuted as apparently might happen in Pennsylvania and for bishops to be jailed for sex abuse cover-up and other crimes.

Scholar Fr. Chad Rippinger, P.hD., in "Introduction to the Science of Mental Health" explains what charity to our enemies or sinners means:

"[C]harity is not divorced from supernatural prudence, not only for our sake but also for the sake of our enemies or sinners. At times, the most charitable thing that can happen to a sinner is to be cut off from certain effects or manifestations of charity so that he may come to his senses about his sinful life. Extending certain effects of charity may confirm him in his sin, and thereby do him harm."

"From this we understand that charity is not merely being nice, rather niceness is the effect of charity which is extended to people based on prudential judgment. This avoids a spirit of falsity which we find in certain people who are always nice, even when their niceness is out of place, unsuitable or even false." (Page 379)

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

Snark can have a sense of humor. Or it can have a mean streak. At its best it can be clarifying of things ordered wrongly.

I find Canon 212 a great Catholic news clearinghouse; a real service to the confused Faithful. It opens up a nice buffet of opinion, info, Intel that I would never have time or skill to find on my own. And the headlines are dryly humorous, connected to and summarizing the info within. Try writing a hundred headlines a day that each get to the heart of what’s inside. No easy job.

Trusting a news aggregator as an info clearinghouse depends on the one selecting and presenting the choices. In a world lined up to marginalize and box in and divert conservatives and orthodox Catholics, Frank Walker is a front-line antidote.

Being nice is not charity. Being nice CAN come from charity. Very good, Fr. R.

How to express outrage without sounding like tired outrage culture? Couldn't tell you.

Benedict XVI abandoned the sheep. How is that not effeminate?

Many men are complaining about the way Mr. Walker operates his service and, of course, the modern response of Americans is not for those complainers to build a better mousetrap or start their own compilation of Catholic news but to publicly register their recriminations.

Would it be too much for them do what Mr. Walker does instead of complaining about his work?

Yes

"Instead of looking at books and pictures about the New Testament I looked at the New Testament.

There I found an account, not in the least of a person with his hair parted in the middle or his hands clasped in appeal, but of an extraordinary being with lips of thunder and acts of lurid decision, flinging down tables, casting out devils, passing with the wild secrecy of the wind from mountain isolation to a sort of dreadful demagogy; a being who often acted like an angry god -- and always like a god." ~ G.K.Chesterton

The word "Charitable" in the Vacuum II Church is nothing more than liberal codespeak for "nice" - which is a nefarious way of demanding tolerance.

Jeremiah Alphonsus said...

It's CatholicCuckery, the manifestation of pitiful cuckservatism in the Catholic sphere. Both cuckservatives and CatholiCucks burn with unquenchable lust for mainstream respectability, and they'll do anything to get it. These "conservatives" conserve only their paychecks and cocktail party invitations. Arch cuckservative George Will is a model example. He's always moaning about "civility."

Essential reading on Vdare:

Cuckservatism: The Cuckoo in the Conservative Movement's Nest, by Alexander Hart

Search for it through Google, as Vdare's search engine isn't great.

“Reason is always a kind of brute force; those who appeal to the head rather than the heart, however pallid and polite, are necessarily men of violence. We speak of ‘touching’ a man’s heart, but we can do nothing to his head but hit it.” ~ G.K.Chesterton
