Okay…, there, I said it.
Yes, my friends…, let’s just cut to the chase and identify democrats for what they are…, willing pawns of the devil.
This political battle has evolved quite rapidly in the last few years, or so, and there is no longer any question about it.
I’m sorry for all of you supposed moderate democrats out there that think you’re exempt from this, because you’re not. There is really nothing moderate about your support of all of these evil extremists and their anti-God, anti-Life, anti-America and America Last policies.
And sadly, many of these people claim to be Catholic!
Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, for example.
Before you can do anything else with your life, all of you “moderate” democrats have got to wake up.
We are in the midst of a full-blown war of Good vs. Evil, and there is no middle ground.
The latest example of satanic puppetry of the democrats is their attack on the Catholic’s Rosary.
Catholics, of course, already understand the implications and evilness of this.
If you’re not Catholic, and the whole Rosary thing is a little unclear in your mind…, let’s first clear up what “The Rosary” is.
“The Rosary” is a structured prayer to Mary, the Mother of Jesus, commemorating Jesus and events of his life.
“A Rosary” is a string of beads, with a Cross, used for keeping count while praying “The Rosary.”
The word “Rosary” comes from Latin and means a garland of roses, the rose being one of the flowers used to symbolize the Virgin Mary.
The Rosary is a devotion in honor of the Virgin Mary. It consists of a set number of specific prayers. First are the introductory prayers: one Apostles’ Creed, one Our Father or the Lord’s Prayer), three Hail Mary’s, and one Glory Be.
The prayer begins, “Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.” This is nothing other than the greeting the angel Gabriel gave Mary in Luke 1:28.
The next part reads, “Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.” This was exactly what Mary’s cousin Elizabeth said to her in Luke 1:42. The only thing that has been added to these two verses are the names “Jesus” and “Mary,” to make clear who is being referred to. So the first part of the “Hail Mary” is entirely biblical.
The second part of the Hail Mary is not taken straight from Scripture, but it is entirely biblical in the thoughts it expresses. It reads, “Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”
So those are the prayers of The Rosary. Between the introductory prayers and the concluding prayer is the meat of The Rosary: the “decades.” Each decade, there are fifteen in a full rosary (which takes about forty-five minutes to say), is composed of ten “Hail Marys.” Each decade is bracketed between an Our Father and a Glory Be, so each decade actually has twelve prayers.
Each decade is devoted to a mystery regarding the life of Jesus or his Mother. Here the word “mystery” refers to a truth of the faith, not to something incomprehensible. The fifteen mysteries are divided into three groups of five: the Joyful, the Sorrowful, and the Glorious. Let’s look at the mysteries.
The Joyful Mysteries are these: the Annunciation (Luke 1:26-38), the Visitation (Luke 1:40-56), the Nativity (Luke 2:6-20), the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple (Luke 2:21-39), and the Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple (Luke 2:41-51).
Then come the Sorrowful Mysteries: the Agony in the Garden (Matt. 26:36-46), the Scourging (Matt. 27:26), the Crowning with Thorns (Matt. 27:29), the Carrying of the Cross (John 19:17), and the Crucifixion (Luke 23:33-46).
The final Mysteries are the Glorious: the Resurrection (Luke 24:1-12), the Ascension (Luke 24:50-51), the Descent of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-4), the Assumption of Mary into Heaven (Rev. 12), and Her Coronation (cf. Rev. 12:1).
Hopefully that helps to bring some understanding to The Rosary, if you had any questions about it.
Now, let’s take a look at what all of the democrat fuss is about, regarding “The Rosary,” and why I was inspired to reply to the democrats’ evil commentary and accusations.
According to The National Review, and Dan McLaughlin, Atlantic Magazine claims “Rosaries Are Worse Than Fire Bombings”
Oh. Really? That sounds like it’s coming straight from the Devil’s mouth. The Devil would think that “Rosaries Are Worse Than Fire Bombings,” by far. No contest.
“When “Jane’s Revenge,” a radical pro-abortion group, takes public credit for firebombing crisis-pregnancy centers, this is how Atlantic writers react, quoting a comparison to ‘moral panic’ over Antifa during the 2020 riots that cost $2 billion in damages and killed two dozen people:”
“Right-wing media outlets have provided ample coverage of this new threat, and anti-abortion politicians have demanded government action to address it.”
And, why wouldn’t they?
“But the group’s practical significance remains in question. Just how meaningful is Jane’s Revenge?”
And who is behind Jane’s Revenge, and why do we not know this. Calling the FBI…, hello FBI…, are you out there?
Anyway…, The Atlantic continues, “Pro-abortion-rights activists have engaged in vandalism in recent weeks, and the blog posts associated with Jane’s Revenge are actively encouraging the behavior. But that does not imply the existence of a complex, coordinated campaign of violence.”
Oh. No…,, not at all.
“In addition to downplaying Jane’s Revenge and its campaign of terror, The Atlantic fails to contextualize it by omitting the activities of ‘Ruth Sent Us,’ the group that published the home addresses of Supreme Court justices to direct protesters to their homes, as well as the assassination attempt on Justice Brett Kavanaugh by a pro-abortion fanatic.”
“Contrast how Panneton frames The Rosary. First, the Atlantic’s subtitle hilariously refers to it as a ‘sacrament,’ an error that can only be explained by having had zero Catholics review the article before publication. Even an ex-Catholic who made it through the third grade would have caught that one. There are seven sacraments, and The Rosary is not one of them:”
“Just as the AR-15 rifle has become a sacred object for Christian nationalists in general, the rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or ‘rad trad’) Catholics.”
Only in the minds of democrats being manipulated by Satan.
“On this extremist fringe, Rosary beads have been woven into a conspiratorial politics and absolutist gun culture. These armed radical traditionalists have taken up a spiritual notion that The Rosary can be a weapon in the fight against evil and turned it into something dangerously literal.”
The Rosary is absolutely “a weapon in the fight against evil.” The Devil hates The Rosary.
According to CNA, The Catholic News Agency, and Zelda Caldwell, ‘“The Atlantic’ publishes article on The Rosary as symbol of far-right, violent extremism.”
“Another article published (recently) in The Atlantic magazine suggests The Rosary has become a symbol of violent, right-wing extremism in the United States.”
“The article set off a frenzy of reactions among Catholics, ranging from amusement to grave concern over what some see as anti-Catholic sentiment.”
“The magazine later changed the article’s headline from ‘How the Rosary Became an Extremist Symbol,’ by Daniel Panneton, to ‘How Extremist Gun Culture is Trying to Co-Opt the Rosary.’ Among other edits to the text, an image of bullet holes forming the shape of rosary was replaced with a picture of a rosary.”
“These editorial changes, nonetheless, left the article’s thesis that there is a connection between The Rosary and extremism intact. The author’s contention was based, in part, on his observations about the use of the rosary on social media and rosaries sold online.”
“The Rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or ‘rad trad’) Catholics,” writes Daniel Panneton of the sacramental use in prayer by Catholics for centuries.”
‘“Militia culture, a fetishism of Western civilization, and masculinist anxieties have become mainstays of the far right in the U.S., and ‘rad-trad’ Catholics have now taken up residence in this company,’ writes Panneton, whose article includes three links to Roman Catholic Gear, an online shop that sells rosaries.”
“Asked to comment on the article, Robert P. George, professor of political theory at Princeton University and former chairman of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), told CNA:”
‘“It looks to me like the guy who is politicizing The Rosary and treating it as a weapon in the culture war is … Daniel Panneton. Although it’s hard to miss the classic anti-Catholic tropes in the piece, perhaps he isn’t actually a bigot. Maybe he just overwrought and needs to take an aspirin or two and lie down for a while.’”
“Chad Pecknold, theology professor at Catholic University of America, told CNA the publication of the article points to a ‘theo-political’ conflict in the culture.”
‘“The politically elite core in left-liberal media hate Western civilization and they mean to topple every natural and supernatural sign of it. That’s why it’s not sufficient to simply run a piece on right-wing gun cultures, but they must tie it to something which is theologically central to the civilization they feel most threatens their progressive ziggurat. It’s a sign of the theo-political conflict which now grips us (What he’s referring to is simply Good vs. Evil.); even still, they severely underestimate the power of Our Lady to reign victorious over evil,’ Pecknold said.”
“Fr. Pius Pietrzyk, OP, a Dominican priest of the Province of St. Joseph, told CNA, ‘The article is a long-running stream of inaccuracies, logical fallacies, and distortions.’”
This is what the great deceiver, Satan, does best…, mislead, lie and distort, and guide his minions, in this case Daniel Panneton and The Atlantic magazine, to mislead, lie and distort.
“The author, he said, fails to understand that ‘the notion of “spiritual combat” has been with the Church from time immemorial. Recall that a traditional view of Confirmation is that it made one a “soldier for Christ.’””
You can consider me a “soldier for Christ.”
What side do you fall on?
This is a much more important question than just a political one.
