A Snapshot of a Dying Church

Went to a Dominican parish this morning for the First Communion of _____. I was very surprised and disappointed by what I saw -- I thought the Western Dominicans were slowly changing things for the better in all of their parishes, despite the presence of a progressive Dominican here or there, but the First Communion Mass was not that much better than the typical Mass you would find in the diocese of San Jose. (The parish is in the archdiocese of San Francisco.)

The parish was very white -- lots of blonde hair to be seen. Quite weird to see that in the Bay Area. Might even be more white than some LDS meeting places.

1. Before Mass the parents and relatives were busy gabbing and socializing. No atmosphere of prayer.

2.1. Lousy processional music -- instrumental version of _____. The congregation sat but rose when it was time for the liturgical ministers and priest to process in. Why?

3. All of the liturgical ministers were women, save 1 altar teen boy. 2 altar girls! The cantrix: typical frank, old woman, and of course raising her hand to get lay participation

4. The children were doing the intercessory petitions. The response: "Loving Father, hear our prayer." Almost as if we are trying to guilt God?

5. And hand-holding was prevalent during the Lord's Prayer. And the kiss of peace was very unrestrained, though the liturgical ministers did succeed in cutting it short by starting up the Agnus Dei (the only Latin chant).

6. And of course, for the children it was their first Communion in hand. Did they consider the alternative?

7. The recessional song? "We are one in Spirit."




Would the songs used today be in the top 100 most popular American Catholic liturgical songs? I bet. Sappy.

8. And, Mass was still only 58 minute long!

Pity the boys who were castrated by a liturgy praxis that makes womyn. How many from this First Communion class will still be practicing in 15 years?

There was a dad changing diaper while mom was sitting in the pew. Symbolic of the state of the patriarchate.

The other night I dreamt of the S. Korean army repelling a N. Korean invasion. Last night, DJT was saving people from buildings that were infested evil; crumbling apart with insects everywhere. And he helped pay for a village out in the middle of nowhere.

"Verbal" Intelligence

If you can't out-talk a woman out outperform her in the use of rhetoric, what option is left? Compelling them to good sense must be by extrarational, extraverbal means.

Overly Large Population Centers Are Dehumanizing

But why do Germans and Japanese able to behave so orderly in their megapoleis? Public education? Social conditioning?

Perhaps the big cities of the United States were once like that, before cultural and ethnic homogeneity started to break down, and there was no longer the dominant set of manners.

A comment at VD:

I think you have it wrong. The German military culture is not about warriors. Warriors are black men in loin cloths with spears to the German. Brave but not all that effective. Germans were "Soldaten" (soldiers), and that title had a very specific meaning, discipline, effective killers for a higher purpose of the fatherland and the right. Medals in Germany were awarded not for dying bravely or saving your own side lives, but repeated effective killing of the foe.

The breaking of the German sprit was 4 fold and did not occur during the war. They fought like devils to May 8th. Their last successful offensive was by Army group center, 4th Army around 21-30 April 1945 when they pushed the polish satellite army in Saxony north and prevented their taking of Dresden. In that battle they were outnumbered and ultimately doomed, they knew it and yet still mauled a polish Army . So what caused the destruction of that sprit:

1) The soldiers were unable to defend their homes and hearth, or their women. Very soul crushing to them, failure to defend the fatherland and the women.

2) The sacrifices were all in vain. The cause was bad. They did not fight for the right principle.

3) You killed most of the "soldier" minded Germans. Between 1,773,000 and 2,020,000 in WWI and something like around 4.3 to 4.8 million in WWII. You literally changed the demographics of the nations, often times getting both the father and the son.

4) A lot of the soldier mentality class left Germany after WWII, growing up on the eastern seaboard there were a lot of quiet German vets around. Their sons ended up in the American army, not the Germany.

The Classic Novel of Male Fake Feminist Cultural Appropriation

The Island of the Blue Dolphins



It won the Newbery Award in 1961; even back then the supposed elites of the literary world leaned left. The writing of the novel was probably a very progressive act at that time; so far I have not heard of any SJWs criticizing it, probably as it has attained the status of a modern children's classic, but give it time.

When I was growing up I had very little interest in reading it -- a book about a girl? Trying to be a boy?
