The Bishops are Being Played. Like Cheap Fiddles.

By Ann Barnhardt
I do not understand how it is that this isn't glaringly, beat-you-over-the-head obvious, but whatever. I'll explain it. Listen up. Especially if you have a hat shaped like the blade of a posthole digger in your wardrobe, and people actually call you "Excellency."

Withdrawing health insurance (like Franciscan University at Steubenville, Ohio), shutting down schools, closing adoption agencies, soup kitchens or ANYTHING ELSE in "protest" of ObamaCare and the HHS "mandates" is EXACTLY, PRECISELY, TOTALLY and COMPLETELY what the Obama regime wants.

Further, the reason why the "press" has OBVIOUSLY been given the order to keep all of this quiet and to not report in any way on the lawsuits filed by the dozens of various Catholic organizations this week against the Obama regime - the largest religious legal action ever taken against the U.S. government by a long shot - is obvious.

The Obama regime is sitting back and watching all of you cowardly fools fold your own tents. None of the stupid bread-and-circus addicted crowd knows anything about any of this. You have to break out of your narcissistic little world and understand that even though these things are earth-shattering to you, uh, most people in this country don't even know that their "government" has declared war on the Church.

So, in a few months, after you all have played right into their hands and shut down your facilities, hospitals, schools and services, congratulating yourselves on your "brave protest", the Obama regime is going to make a ginormous propaganda offensive telling all of the stupid TV-addled idiots that the Catholic Church doesn't give a crap about "the people" because they have shut down their hospitals, schools, their soup kitchens, their adoption agencies and won't even provide health insurance plans to the poor, poor youths attending their universities. The Catholic Church hates "the people", hates charity, hates sick people, hates women, hates children, hates poor people and is hoarding all of its money.

Oh, but the Obama regime LOVES you. The Obama regime will provide you and anyone else who joins their Free Shit Army with all of the "free healthcare", "free education", "free food" and free unicorn farts they could ever want or need.

Listen, you fools. YOU DON'T SHUT ANYTHING DOWN. You keep going exactly as you have been, and you force those dirty rotten SOBs to literally storm your hospitals and shut YOU down at gunpoint. And I'm not kidding. Make them physically shut down your hospital by dragging you out at gunpoint. Make them physically shut down your schools. Make them shut down your university by force because you won't cover abortions in your student health plan. Make them physically shut down your soup kitchens. Make them shut down your adoption agencies because you won't hand a baby boy over to two men who like to jam various and sundry body parts up each others' rectums.

In other words, STAND AND FIGHT.

The only proper course of action is total non-compliance with these totalitarian edicts of the regime, and FORCING THEIR HAND.

Anything less than that, and you LOSE. MEN fight wars. If you refuse to do your duty and act like MEN, then the war is already lost. And make no mistake, cowardice is a grave sin, and you will answer for it.

Every bishop is given a crosier upon his ordination to the episcopacy. A crosier is a shepherd's staff. It is a six to seven foot long staff that a shepherd uses to beat the crap out of wolves. That's your job. Beating the crap out of the wolves - not killing all of the sheep yourself so that there is nothing left for the wolves to eat.

If the bishops had done their job for the past forty years, catholics would not vote for Democrat candidates. Many of the American bishops share Obama's ideologies. The schism is here. God help us.

Beat the wolves! I like it! Oo-rah!

Birgit J said...

Wow! What a mean-spirited post! Do you mind giving a constructive suggestion just how the bishops are supposed to beat back the wolves?

anon said...

Ann knows how to tell it like it is. I know some men who could take some lessons from her.

Elisabeth said...

BRAVA! Damn right!

And isn't it indicative of just how bad things are when we WOMEN have to pony up and tell the men what they need to have been doing all along?

It's the truth, it needs to be said. Unfortunately, we men have been feminized to practical death...I still hold out some hope though.

Fr. Frank said...

@Birgit: How are the bishops supposed to beat back the wolves?

Ann answered that -- and splendidly. Stop going out of the adoption, education, and healthcare ministries. Stop giving in. Refuse to comply with the HHS mandates in all of our charitable institutions and make the government come get us. Let the people see doctors, hospital administrators, teachers, adoption agency workers, and priests being physically hauled out and carted off to jail. . . . And I agree. It's time to buy, or at least rent a set of b@lls.

@ Elisabeth re: women having to pony up and tell the men what they need to have been doing all along.

With respect, women have been telling us what we need to do from time out of mind. The problem is with those women who have pistol-whipped two generations of American men with feminist demagoguery. When we think and act like men we are informed that we are dangerous, barbaric, and abusive. When we bite our tongues, clench our fists at our sides, and act the way the harridans say we should, we're belittled for being weak and spineless.

Good Lord, I even see men shaving their arms and legs because their girlfriends (the arbitratrixes of all that is masculine) find the way God Almighty created them to be "icky."

So what do you want? While it disgusts me when they do it, I nevertheless understand when many men finally respond to the crises around them by saying "Screw it. Fix it yourself." Again, it's shameful -- but it's understandable.

The men (I use the term loosely here) in full riot gear will be more than happy to shut down the hospitals, adoption agencies, churches, and every other Catholic agency the same way they're closing down farms, whole food co-ops, Amish milk farms, hog farms, and any other healthy food, vitamin, or natural treatment outlet. The Bishops have much to account for already. If they were the men they were ordained to be, perhaps we would never have gotten this far. Remember "Faithful Citizenship", the 2008 voter guide put out by the USCCB?

Old Bob said...

Thanks, Ann! You tell it just like I see it.
The administration indeed wants the Church to give up all her works of mercy so O. and his minions can both throw mud at the Church for failing her duty, and take over all those services themselves.
If we think we have a nanny state now, we ain't seen nuthin' yet!
