The Week In Doom: There Will Be Priestesses Edition

We are weeks behind in Doom. Doom other than the virus, that is. Here’s a small attempt to catch up.

Taylor Marshall reports “Yes, so Bishops are officially ‘commissioning women ministers’ to minister at the altar after studying 2 years at seminary. This is not the Amazon. It’s not the future. It’s the present Novus Ordo reality. See photo. Reclaim the Roman Rite. Reject this:”

The “this” rejected is a picture from Archbishop Gregory Aymond featuring himself with a group of would-be priestesses, and the words

On Sunday, we commissioned 8 women to be LAY ECCLESIAL MINISTERS for our archdiocese. They have prepared for 2 years at Notre Dame Seminary. Our archdiocese is blessed by their faith and commitment to ministry. We are grateful to them and their loved ones who made this possible. The picture includes them and the staff of the institute.

It is impossible for a female person to be a priest, or even a priestess, in the Roman Catholic Church. It is also impossible for a man to be a nun or sister. Symmetric discrimination. Anyway, given the impossibility, you’d think the squishy men (unfortunately appointed as priests in great numbers) would give up trying. They will not.

They are in the grip of Equality. Equality is the mind killer. Equality is not surprisingly the first sin. They want to make it the last, too.

What’s that? It’s proof you want? Very well, proof.

Defiance in DeLand: Woman ordained Roman Catholic priest

On March 14, Shelley Rae Gilchrist joined a unique group of rule breakers when she was ordained as a Roman Catholic priest.

It’s a move that Pope Francis and the Catholic Church have declined to support, but Bridget Mary Meehan, the first bishop in the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests, says it’s a grassroots movement that isn’t going to disappear.

“Hello, 21st century, let’s embrace equality and justice in the Catholic Church,” Meehan, one of the first women ordained in the United States, said.

Last sentence is a whopper: three fallacies in one! The Current Year Fallacy, the Equality Fallacy, and the Priestess Fallacy, which is committed when a priestess is said to be the same as a priest.

Hat tip for today’s picture (not same as Marshall’s).

Speaking of priestesses and the growing matriarchy, this next Item.

Argentinian doctor given jail sentence for refusing to do an abortion

An Argentine court has upheld the criminal conviction of a gynaecologist who refused to abort the child of a rape victim in 2017. Dr Leandro Rodriguez Lastra was sentenced to a 14-month suspended jail term, plus 28 months of disqualification from holding public office. Dr Rodriguez Lastro will appeal.

The victim was a 19-year-old in her fifth month of pregnancy, the result of sexual abuse by a relative. At first she used an abortion drug provided by an NGO. That failed and she was referred to the hospital where Rodriguez Lastra was head of gynecology.

The doctor said that abortion posed a risk to both the unborn child and the mother. However, the judges said that the only thing necessary for a legal termination of pregnancy was a formal request from the rape victim.

The child was later given up for adoption.

In a divided vote, judges Miguel Angel Cardella and María Rita Custet Llambí considered that in this case “the gender perspective should be applied,” and therefore held that the accused is guilty of the crime of “failure to comply with the duties of a public official”.

My favorite line in the story is “The child was later given up for adoption”, which is short for “The child was later given up for adoption and not killed by Dr Rodriguez Lastro on demand of the mother.”

Doctors used to swear an oath not to take a life by abortion. That was in the days of the dreaded patriarchy. They are now arrested and jailed for not killing children would-be mothers don’t want.

Any society in which it is legal, and even encouraged, for women to kill their children—especially without the agreement of the fathers—is a matriarchy.

Matriarchy is death and chaos. This is why it’s no surprise men, who long to dominate, want to get in on womenhood.

Attorney General William Barr: Transgender Girls Are Male

The U.S. Department of Justice is taking sides in a landmark federal lawsuit, and the man with his thumb on the scale in favor of the lawyers for a Christian rights organization is none other than Attorney General William Barr.

The DOJ filed a legal document Tuesday in Hartford, Conn., where the anti-LGBTQ Alliance Defending Freedom is representing three high school girls in their suit to stop transgender girls from competing in school sports. The Trump Administration has now joined the ADF in resorting to transphobic terms to misidentify trans girls in court documents such as “biological males” and “boys.”

The Dept. of Justice’s statement of interest argues the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference is violating Title IX, the federal law that provides equal educational opportunities for girls, including in athletics.

The female who wrote this story for Forbes uses (as regular readers will recognize) the Imposing Your Belief Fallacy. She accesses Barr of thumb-on-scale, which is a secular sin. Yet it’s obvious she has nothing against thumbs on scales: she just wants them to be her delicate digits, and not Barr’s

It must be particularly galling for this female that Title IX was turned around and used as a weapon against her.

Brand new commercial for Microsoft

Here’s a fairly good indication the entire world is losing its mind, elites included. Not just Microsoft but Christie’s. This is Marina “Spirit Cooking” Abramovic, art fraud and would-be cannibal. Supported by the “best” people in the world.

The ad caused quite a stir, and it was pulled after a day or two. Those who went long on Serbian Satanism took a loss.

Canadian Armed Forces requires all personnel to stop using gendered pronouns

Rumor says weapons will also be taken away from Canadian soldiers, to be replaced by GRR training. When an enemy attacks Canadian soldiers will go “Grrr!” in a fearsome manner at them.

  1. “They are in the grip of Equality.” Nope, the love of money and the root of all evil. Of course, if the Catholics had backbones, which they have no more than the supposedly freedom loving Americans hiding in their houses for over a month, they would have gone home and starved out the church quickly. I guess it’s easier to follow Satan than stand for Christ. Always was and the Catholic church is the new poster child for Satan.

    Bill Gates is evil. Has been for decades. His wife tries getting him to be charitable, in what appears to be a vain hope that Bill’s Hitler, killer nature will somehow be balanced out by mosquito nets for Africa, but that never works. Dance with the devil and you live in Hell. It is what it is. Bill convinced me that rich people very, very rarely make it into heaven. They sell their soul early on and have zero chance of redemption (short of a lightening strike and even that better be a good one). His boyish face is just a cover for the evil and selfishness his black soul carries.

    No problem on the “don’t use gender pronouns”. Your mommy gave you a name and I can use it very, very effectively. Plus, there’s no doubt whom I am calling an ignorant, useless piece of garbage. Actually, it’s a win-win. In the military, your “gender” does not matter. Stupid “XXs” should be humilated and berated just as “XYy” are. If the TO won’t do it, the recruit dies in battle and problem solved. Life in the Army is very short. As for “grrr” training, the British marched in lines in red uniforms. So nothing new here. Armies have tended to be the front line of stupid for centuries now.

  2. Women have power in the home. They should have no power outside the home.

    History proves the truth of this conjecture.

    In happy news, SpaceX will launch a manned mission to the ISS on May 27.

  3. Go to SSPX parishes until the boomer women who are crossdressing (pretending to be priests) die out. The Church of the future will be smaller and more devout (as Benedict said). There’s no point to woke Christianity – the woke left does wokeness so much better (and cheaper!!).

  4. My spiritual father and friend the Eastern Catholic Priest Father Constantine – once told this most excellent story:
    A group of priests were having a splendid dinner at the residence of a Russian – Catholic Bishop – after dinner the bishop asked those at his table the following question: “A catholic bishop goes into his cathedral and performs the ordination liturgy – to total perfection – correct words, correct matter, correct intention – but he performs this service on a women – tell me what happens? After several different answers from the assembled priests – they ask him [the bishop] to tell them his answer – in a thick Russian accent he says “Nothing happens – ha ha ha ha ha”
    Words to live by – for more info on the Holy Priest Father Constantine (+RIP) see here – https://www.pinterest.com/mattawomanbeantown/father-constantine-belisarius/

  5. “They are now arrested and jailed for not killing children would-be mothers don’t want.” Once pregnant, a woman is a mother forever. The only would-be mothers, are women who desire motherhood, but have not yet conceived.

    Regarding the Catholic Priesthood and that only men can be ordained, even if women go through the ceremony with all “legal” correctness: word, ceremony, etc.

    Jesus did all that God the Father told Him and showed Him,.

    Jesus proved that He had His own will during His Agony in the Garden. Read it and see.

    Jesus ate and drank wine and they called Him a glutton and an imbiber.

    He used whips to clear out those doing business in His Father’s house which was the Temple at Jerusalem.

    He raised the dead in the presence of many.

    When the “theys” of the day tried to catch Him up, He responded with:
    ” Give to Caesar that which is Caesar’s, and to God that which is God’s. ”

    He knew and was well aware that hatred was growing against Him, but He went on teaching that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

    Jesus the Christ was crucified for telling the truth that He is the Son of God, which was the worst of blasphemies to most of those in charge of Judaism at the time.

    He was not bound by the Jewish laws, though He did observe those which were right.

    He “broke” the Sabbath by healing on the Sabbath.

    So do not say that Jesus did not ordain women as Priests in God’s Church, due to the lesser esteem that women were held in.

    Do not hold that today anyone knows better, God’s will concerning His Priesthhood, than God did when Jesus obeyed Him completely.

    If God our Father had wanted women and men as Priests for His Church, He would have given Jesus to know that, and Jesus would have ordained women, along with His Apostles.

    God bless, C-Marie

  6. To all the Novus Ordo “Wimmen” and their Jesuit Marxist Illuminati craven men, I can only repeat the final words which will be spoken from The White Throne Of Judgement: ANATHEMA SIT.

  7. C-Marie, I think you are stretching the idea that Jesus “Ordained” anyone in the same way that the the Institutional Churches ‘Ordain’ Priests today. There is no evidence of “holy orders” documented and laid down in Jesus’ teachings.

    Holy Orders appear to me to be purely a human political institution, as evidenced by the thousands of schisms ever since nearly the very start of the Institutional Church.

    Naturally we will not agree, and while I do not support women as church leaders, saying “Jesus made men the Priests” to me falls flat.

  8. Nate…
    If you read the Book of Revelation, not only does Jesus address what is to come, but also, the at that time, current condition of His Church. Read His charges concerning the seven churches.

    There were schisms in the Church while the Apostles were still here:
    Acts 20…..Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.

    Here are synonyms for ordain: set, appoint, decree, institute, prescribe, arrange, direct, regulate, dictate, establish.

    Choose one.

    Read the institution of the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper. Jesus said to His Apostles, “Do this in remembrance of Me.”

    Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist and of Holy Orders established:
    “And when the hour was come, he sat down: and the twelve apostles with him. And he said to them: With desire I have desired to eat this pasch with you, before I suffer. ForI say to you that from this time I will not eat it, till it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. And having taken the chalice, he gave thanks and said: Take and divide it among you. For I say to you that I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, till the kingdom of God come. And taking bread, he gave thanks and brake and gave to them, saying: This is my body, which is given for you. Do this for a commemoration of me. In like manner, the chalice also, after he had supped, saying: This is the chalice, the new testament in my blood, which shall be shed for you. But yet behold: the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table. And the Son of man indeed goeth, according to that which is determined: but yet, woe to that man by whom he shall be betrayed. And they began to inquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing. ”
    Luke 22.

    Sacrament of Penance established…..needed for grave sins…
    See in John 20: 21….” So Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained.”

    Papacy established :
    Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He began asking His disciples, saying, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; but still others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Simon Peter answered and said, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades shall not overpower it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Then He warned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was the Christ.
    Matthew 16.

    So, Jesus, ordained, established, His Apostles as His Church’s first priests … and they were men. Accepting or not accepting that which Jesus did, will not change that which He established.

    God bless, C-Marie

  9. @ Briggs,

    “Last sentence is a whopper: three fallacies in one!”

    A conclusion being based on a fallacy doesn’t mean that it is necessarily false. Why don’t you come up with some arguments of your own, rather than just playing childish games?

    “They are now arrested and jailed for not killing children would-be mothers don’t want.”

    Maybe he should have been sacked rather than jailed, but he was being paid to do his job so he should have done it. And, considering that the girl was a rape victim, he was a heartless ‘king bastard, so good riddance to him.

    @ Sheri,

    “Bill Gates is evil.”

    Bill Gates has given $26 billion through his foundation mostly to help poor people. What have you done?

    @ McChuck,

    “[Women] should have no power outside the home. History proves the truth of this conjecture.”

    You mean the history which men have been almost exclusively in charge of since day one?

    @ Jeffrey Jorgensnen,

    “A group of priests were having a splendid dinner at the residence of a Russian – Catholic Bishop”

    While the peasants starved.

    @ C-Marie,

    “Jesus proved that He had His own will during His Agony in the Garden.”

    Where were the famous eyewitnesses to this ‘event’?

    “Jesus would have ordained women, along with His Apostles.”

    Pretty weak argument. Bearing in mind that Jesus had no female disciples, I can conclude that he didn’t want women in his church at all.

  10. Even in the time of resurrection, swordfishtrombone wills to remain in the darkness and yet some men claim there is no such thing as free will.

  11. Bill Gates has given $26 billion through his foundation mostly to help poor people

    Help? If sterilizing and poisoning (both body and mind) is help. He also created Windows 10, so that cancels out anything “good.”

  12. Well, it is wholly incorrect to conclude that Jesus wanted no women n His Church at all, as that would mean that even His own Mother, our Mother Mary, could not be in Christ’s Church.

    The Holy Spirit led and guided and inspired and informed those who wrote the Bible. Plus we know that some were eyewitnesses…..as Peter was when Jesus was transfigured and Peter, James, and John, saw Jesus with Moses and Elijah. As for Christ’s Agony in the Garden, trust God our Father that He would have us know the sufferings His Son underwent for us and our sins, and so what happened there, was given to whom God willed.

    At any rate, we each have free will, and we can choose to believe God or not…..
    the “not being to our own detriment.

    The truth is being told here, and acceptance of Christ as Who He said He was and is …the Way, the Truth, the Resurrection and the Life, is the most important choice we will and can ever make, for in believing in Him and believing Him, as we stay in Him and His Word, Christ by His Holy Spirit, will bring us to eternal life with God our Father, and with Himself, and with the Holy Spirit.

    God bless, C-Marie

  13. C-Marie,

    We’re going to only agree on the Way, Truth, Resurrection and Life. The Human Institution of such things in one and only one way as defined by Rome simply does not follow.

    “Do this in remembrance of me” != “The wine must be blessed in such an such a way by a specific person, and undergoes a mystical process that turns it into something which conveys grace”.

    I consistently come back to Dostoevsky’s view of the RCC. “Roman Catholicism believes that the Church cannot exist on earth without universal temporal power, and cries: Non possumus!”

  14. @ C-Marie,

    “that would mean that even His own Mother, our Mother Mary, could not be in Christ’s Church.”

    Not strictly relevant, but Jesus’s family thought he was insane. (Mark 3:20-21)

    “The Holy Spirit led and guided and inspired and informed those who wrote the Bible.”

    So they heard voices?

    “At any rate, we each have free will, and we can choose to believe God or not.”

    Belief isn’t a choice.

  15. @ c matt,

    “Help? If sterilizing and poisoning (both body and mind) is help. He also created Windows 10, so that cancels out anything “good.””

    Bill Gates’s Foundation aims:

    * Provide the poor with access to financial tools
    * Teach farmers how to increase production sustainably
    * Help women make informed family-planning decisions
    * Increase students’ college completion rates
    * Accelerate progress to eradicate malaria
    * Reduce HIV infections and extend lives for people with HIV
    * Deliver life-saving vaccines where they’re needed most
    * Eradicate polio
    * Fund research for new policies and financial frameworks
    * Inspire foundation visitors to change the lives of others
    * Translate scientific discoveries into solutions

    Nothing about ‘sterilizing and poisoning’. Regarding Windows 10, maybe that was tongue in cheek, but I’m a developer and really like Windows 10. And unlike Apple, Microsoft doesn’t charge me $99 a year just to develop on their platform.

    “Go to SSPX parishes until the boomer women who are crossdressing (pretending to be priests) die out.”

    Its like stealing the Royal Robes and Crown. Or placing a vote in defiance.

    When they “Vote” or their LARPing ends up with them being ignored and the woman escorted out of the throne room whilst carried by guards kicking and screaming.

  17. I used to wonder why Argentina was so violent. No longer. Violence against babies in their mothers’ wombs means that no one can be safe. The State is even mandating it. We’re going to see a similar increase in violence (Romans 1-2)

    When will this corrupt Westphalian nation-state order be swept away in favor of something new?
