|Cardinal George Chicago - Martyrdom is Good for Everybody Else Other Than Me|
The British Uber-Catholic Blogosphere went ape shit the other day when Parliament under conservative Prime Minister Cameron confirmed the right thing, the human thing to do, to confirm the civil right of all citizens in Britain the right to civil marriage.
The law which passed is on the road to adjustments, tweaking, and a final vote in the House of Lords exempts religious groups, gives them the right to abstain from being forced by law to administer the marriage ceremony for the state.
In BRITAIN it was the conservatives that pushed for marriage equality for some strange reason. I do, as an aside, wonder if there is a some new world order committee that tells the guy in charge in every country – “this is how it goes Jack and or Dave and or Barry etc…” (aside over)
Well the period in which the organized resistance to marriage equality was a lot like their prep time for elections like for only a few weeks. So the opposition and not necessarily the political right only had days and weeks to organize opposition letter writing, blog explaining campaign against the human rights thing of marriage equality.
Now that Cameron has betrayed his upfront promise for his government not to get involved in marriage equality, the religious right is seething in anger and looking for scapegoats etc. for their defeat in Parliament.
All well and good the way they do things in Britannia. Since that recent vote in Parliament, I have not found one single right wing Brit religious blog that has not quoted half of Cardinal George of Chicago’s so called “Call to Martyrdom" in the British Isles. It spread like wildfire. Almost like off the same mimeograph machine.
The quote is:
“I am (correctly) quoted as saying that I expected to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square.”
A call to martyrdom of Brit Catholics?
The source of the quote which is rarely quoted in the British Catholic Blogosphere is the link below along with the full two sentence quotation by the holy loquacious bishop of Chicago, whom many think is Benedict XVI’s logical successor as head of the Vatican Mafia Crime Family.
“I am (correctly) quoted as saying that I expected to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square.”--“His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the Church has done so often in human history.”
All well and good that Cardinal George’s successor be flung into prison but I think it not on matters of faith as much as for fiscal mismanagement (stealing) and the child abuse scandal cover-up as now documented in the infamous Ratzinger Pedophile Archives in the Vatican, which I think is Cardinal Ratzinger’s ultimate legacy to humanity in terms of documenting the Holocaust of Innocence (of Children) orchestrated by the pervs presently running the Church of Rome.
My spec choice for the man in prison in Cardinal George’s rightful place as the next Cardinal of Chicago is Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville Kentucky, that state represented at present in the Senate by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (grandma) and tea bagger tea party superstar Rand Paul. Geez.
I do not suppose that Cardinal George knows or cares that far right Brit Catholics are about to act like lemmings and jump off the cliff of martyrdom and or enroll in Afghani style Martyr classes in the greater London region. Will he make an effort to rescind his popular half quoted position, while jihad forms in his absence of clarity? I somehow doubt it.
On top of this now defeat of the far right Catholics in Britain is their blogosphere, they are now quoting the great church father of law Cardinal Burke as author of revenge and denying sacraments to all Catholics in Parliament who voted with the Cameron team on marriage equality. Oy Vey!
What a strange backward Déjà vu Britain is now after our recent elections where we did not vote for Obama as much as make every effort possible to vote against the Church Party – the GOP – who would scrap our social safety net to finance lazy crony moron business men who don’t know how to run businesses or create jobs.
