26-year-old Edmund Harman – a teacher at Notre Dame High School – was arrested Monday at his home in Franklin Township and was charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of criminal sexual contact. His bail was set at $150,000.
In February, Harman allegedly met a student in his classroom, before school started, for extra credit. According to police, the victim said Harman fondled her breasts, kissed the back of her neck and massaged her back and legs. Harman is also accused of directing the student to send him naked pictures. Source: Catholic High School Teacher Accused Of Fondling Student
(Green text indicates sarcasm or the voice of the liar, as is the form around here. Gotta make that clear. Sigh.)
So a friend in Riverville turned me on to a Metaphysics class that I could listen to, and good grief are you people in trouble now! Metaphysics is kind of trippy-wippy as it is, in extremely simple terms, the study of “being”, and not for everyone to be sure. But, amongst all of the tall, dense weeds that one must wade through, glorious clearings open up, and there are truths therein that every single human being can use in day to day life to be… wiser. And we LUUUURV wisdom, because Proverbs 1:7 tells us, “The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom. Fools despise Wisdom and instruction.”
I have listened to three hours of lecture so far covering exactly eight paragraphs of text, and have half-a-dozen essay topics already, all of which illuminate what exactly it is that is going on in these dark days, both in the secular realm and in the Church.
The first: So… what in the blue, fiery blazes is happening with this Synod on the Family thingy?
In short, the infiltrators of the Church are trying to accomplish nothing less than the total destruction of the Church. They subscribe to the satanic heresy of MODERNISM, which is, quite possibly, the worst heresy ever. Pope St. Pius X called Modernism “the synthesis of all heresies”, meaning all heresies combined. Think of Modernism as the Super Wal-Mart of heresies. EVERYTHING is in there. And here’s where the metaphysics comes in.
While church attendance continues to fall in the West and Christians are being driven out of the Middle East under Islamist pressure, China is moving in the opposite direction. In 2011 the Pew Research Center, a Washington-based think-tank, estimated that there were 67 million Chinese Christians, about 5 per cent of the total population. Of these, 58 million were Protestant and nine million Catholic. Their number exceeds that of members of the Communist Party (CCP)…
…The 300 page dossier by the three cardinals on the homosexual mafia and the homosexual cardinals WILL BE READ ALOUD AT THE CONCLAVE in the presence of ALL of the voting cardinals with NAMES NAMED after the oath of secrecy is taken. These recent resignations of cardinals may very well be the sodomites running scared.
And yes, the Vatican sodomites are tied to the Vatican bank. Are we really shocked that sexual perversion and financial crimes are linked? You people who are STILL falling for the “what people do in their sex lives doesn’t matter” meme have got to wake up.
Sex, be it homo or hetero, DOES MATTER. Bill Clinton’s escapades with Monica DID MATTER, because if a person can operate in the realm of sexuality with zero morality, shame or remorse, what do you think that implies about their business dealings, political dealings or their general psychological state? Sexual perversion and promiscuity are directly correlated to sociopathy and psychopathy. Sane people don’t treat other people like pieces of meat. Sane people don’t treat themselves like pieces of meat. Sane people regard other people as subjects, not objects. Sane people have consciences. Sane people have standards of decency and are repelled by sexual perversion…
RANT WARNING: So, I admit that I find comedian Paul Mooney funny, just as I admit that i occasionally listen to Rush Limbaugh if I am driving. I caught little snippets last week of the faux controversy whereby Rush supposedly called Sex Addicted, but Impoverished, Ms, Fluke a “slut” .. an apropos epithet that seems to have caused Limbaugh advertiser Sleep Number Bed to leave him as quickly as Ms. Fluke reportedly gets into hers.
OK, whatever, anything to paint our Vicodin chewing, bombastic captain as negatively as possible as often as possible, even though we are told he is irrelevant. I get it.
(Then, BTW, traumatized by the fact that the Ms. Fluke – reportedly a 30 year old activist and therefore either a really stupid or lazy ‘college student’ who perhaps should spend more time studying than screwing – was called a nasty name by someone he should care less about, our President was forced into contemplation of his daughters for some weird reason. BHO then reportedly felt compelled to call Ms. Fluke and express support for her sex life. WTF?! A little creepy there BHO…)
Do not lose sight of the foundational issues here, i.e. those whereby the Federal Government seeks to abrogate 1st Amendment rights on freedom of religion (and, arguably, establishment of a government religion) and also seeks to force the individual into a collectivist and coerced system of health care purchasing for which the Federal Government has no power. The shadow diversion issues of “sexism”, “gender-ism”, “class-ism”, “racism”, “social justice” and all the other divisive “-isms” are just another dose of the incessant smoke screen we are faced with as our society, culture, rights and economy are devalued, changed or stolen outright.
But, even the dumbest among us (like me) can see a crushing double standard in the smokescreen of the faux issues. OK, Rush Limbaugh calls some narcissistic, messianic sex-fiend a slut when she comes to us – hand out – expecting us to pay for her free condoms and dental-dams while she is enrolled in a Catholic College, replete with moral restrictions, of her own choosing. Not only is she reasonably called a slut, but a stupid and entitled slut at that. (My words, not Rush’s.)
Now compare that considered opinion, to this stream of sexist, racist, unsolicited bile – although funny – from comedian, Obama supporter and stanchion of the left Paul Mooney, and ask yourself where is the outcry against HBO for airing these opinions?
I.e. forward to 2:39 into the clip as Paul opines on Sarah palin (who as far as i know pays for her own condoms.)
RANT WARNING: I am so over this faux controversy, this conflation of “wants” with “needs”, “privileges” with “rights”, “health” with “behaviors”. On the one hand this nonsensical issue is so illuminating of the poverty of the left / Obama / Obamacare / Socialism premises. On the other this is a painful distraction from real or truthful regarding things such as:
The role of the Federal Government in personal needs and wants;
Duties of others to meet needs and wants of the some;
The constitutional constraints on Executive authority;
The spinelessness of the Legislative branch;
The reproach-ability of the Judicial branch (coming soon?);
The long ignored overpopulation issue (wonder what Paul Ehrlich thinks of this state of affairs?);
The recent synonymy of “pregnancy” with “disease”;
The implied misanthropy and human-hating premise of the left and this contraception policy;
The apparent supplanting of some non-existent ‘birth control debate’ for the ‘abortion debate” which has devolved into an electoral non-starter on which progressives have traditionally relied;
How this relates to Obama’s low approval ratings among women and the coming election;
My head will burst if I think about this any more…Thank you Rush Limbaugh BTW.
via Reason Magazine… Supporters of Obama’s birth control rule conflate liberty with subsidies, insisting that you are not really free to do something (in this case, use contraceptives) unless it’s free. According to this logic, observant Jews do not have religious freedom unless the government pays for their kosher food, bloggers do not have freedom of speech unless taxpayers buy them computers, and Americans in general do not have a right to keep and bear arms if they have to pay for guns with their own money. By contrast, the religious institutions that object to the contraceptive mandate are not asking for subsidies; they are resisting them. They object to a regulation that forces them to pay for products and services they consider immoral. They want the freedom to offer their employees health plans that do not cover contraception and sterilization…
Fox News’s Ed Henry challenged White House Press Secretary Jay Carney during a Tuesday briefing over the growing controversy surrounding the Obama administration’s move on January 20 to force most employers to cover sterilization, abortion-inducing drugs, and contraceptives in their health care policies without co-pay. This new federal mandate would force Catholic institutions, like hospitals and schools, to decide whether to obey it or follow the Church’s teachings against contraception.
Anchor Megyn Kelly trumpeted that “this is turning into a big deal, and the White House… [is] saying they believe they have struck the appropriate balance…the Catholic Church…saying, how is it the appropriate balance to delay…the time at which we’d have to violate our consciences?”
