A Consequentialist Argument for Maintaining the Latin Discipline

Au contraire, the question of married priests is primarily a disciplinary one. Employing the "dismal science" to do a cost/benefit analysis of changing the discipline without questioning the institutional assumptions is to get the conclusion one wants. A change in discipline requires other concurrent ecclesial reforms (such as smaller parishes with face-to-face or personal accountability) which would eliminate or replace those institutional assumptions; do a cost-benefit analysis after those assumptions have been examined. After all, it is primarily due to centralization of ecclesial authority and the building of large-scale institutions (seminaries as a part of the Counter-Reformation), along with clericalism, that enabled the discipline of clerical celibacy to be take hold, despite previous resistance in many geographic areas.

An Ignorant Take on A Hidden Life

This is what I expected from the left or leftist Christians to say about A Hidden Life, applying the Nutzees to Trump. They fail to understand that the true enemy of the people and of God is the oligarchy and the Deep State, and that erroneous "nationalism" is a product of the state. The cultural revolutionaries and (D)s have their own version of nationalism that they would use to make other submit to the oligarchs. But you can't fix ideological blindness, especially one posing as "Christianity."

Ecclesial Reform Requires the Participation of Laymen in Ecclesial Life

Meador's review highlights one of the main problems with McGinley's book about reform. If Roman Catholic men are expected to "sacrifice" while being part of an institutional life that is completely foreign to anything they are as men because it is so feminized, why would they bother?
What they need is not only a masculine asceticism that is relevant to them (and not monastics), an asceticism that is subordinated to their living out their duties to (and love of) family and of the tribe, but they need to be appreciated as men within the Church, which is not happening thanks to feminism, cultural misandry, and clericalism. Nor are they being appreciated when the institutional Church embraces a feminized worship with female ministers in addition to the male clerics. Women can survive with a worship that is more reason-centered (but doesn't neglect the emotions; rather the emotions serve reason) -- in fact, I bet they do better with a more "male" form of worship. But men cannot thrive at all with a form of worship that caters to emotions and sentimentalism.

So Blue Pill

"Women Are More Spiritual Than Men"

At this point, that is just a cope by representatives and leaders of institutional Churchianity for their failure to appeal to and attract men with their distorted Gospel.

CWR Dispatch: Pope Francis and expanding lay ministries: A response to Fr. Stravinskas by Nicholas Senz
Some remarks on Spiritus Domini and the nature of “ministry”.

The formalization of women in the participation of these liturgical ministries merely takes the feminization of the patriarchate of Rome and its worship one step further, and the worship, which is the most important part of the life of the Church, will continue to alienate healthy men. But we know Latin bishops don't really care about bringing them back, not if it offends their false Gospel of feminism and egalitarianism. And so they reap the consequences they merit.

"I'm a normal man and I've stuck with Christianity. It's a problem with them." Let he who would say this subject himself and his relations with his wife and children to scrutiny by actual masculine men to determine if his claim is true.

A Thought on Hagia Sophia

Hagia Sophia will not be restored until the patriarch of Constatinople repents. while it may be necessaru for a council to recognize his renunciation of the status given to Constantinople, nothing prevents him from renouncing it and acting accordingly.

Autocephaly for national churches is an inadequate universal solution which respect to nation-states, as it will tend to reinforce and serve secular nationalism. A locus of churches in a city can be represented in council, but the Church should be moored primarily in a local political reality.

The second does not follow from the first. Rather, the second is ersatz feminist ethics of care disguised as Christianity? Or just a female take on "encountering the other." Either way, it is the idealizing of female-to-female interaction, and is no different from the claim that women make friends more easily or women have more intimate friendships. All lies.

Liberal Education Will Fix Everything!

When you don't have political liberty, a liberal education really doesn't matter, especially if that liberal education is deemed to be in opposition to the reigning woke civic religion and therefore to be eliminated.

This Is My Squad

Matt Yglesias on Strong Towns Podcast, Part 1

Latin "Centrism"

More with Brandon McGinley. Listen for yourself. I can't recommend following his work as his political understanding is so wrong.


Liturgy unites us with our fellow Catholics through space and time. We hear the same readings at Mass as our brothers and sisters in Tokyo or the terrorized Church in Nigeria. We pray the same Gloria and Sanctus and Agnus Dei that Christians have prayed for centuries, even if the language and musical settings have changed. And most importantly, in the Mass we share in the same Body and Blood of Christ, the victim of Calvary whose sacrifice unites all who take up their crosses and follow him.

A false identification of the patriarchate of Rome with the Church. Not all Catholics have the same readings or even the same liturgy every Sunday. And his is just a transformation of our "identity" in Christ into a sort of political identity which will serve political purposes. A remnant of Latin ecclesial imperialism.
