Posts Tagged ‘Ecclesiastical Megalomania’

Over the past few years, it’s been common to hear defenders of social media censorship retort to those who complain about, “Twitter is a private company, and they can ban whom they want.  If you don’t like it, go start your own Twitter!” 

One interesting aspect of this argument is that those who made it generally were individuals who were not known to respect laissez-faire capitalism or private property.  In fact, they tended to be socialists of one stripe or another. 

Those who complained about the censorship, generally those people who tended to favor political and economic liberty, then were wrongfooted.  Either they felt they had to call for government regulation of social media, which contradicted their free market principles or to make charges that the government was behind the censorship, at which point they’d be called “conspiracy theorists.”

“Conspiracy theorist” is one of those terms that seemingly everyone wants to avoid.  “I’m by no means a conspiracy theorist,” is a common turn of phrase people will use when they’re about to introduce an idea that sounds like a conspiracy theory.  It’s as if to believe in conspiracies is the very height of ignorance, and that one must deny conspiracies exist if he wants to remain a member of society in good standing. 

But conspiracies do exist and are even recognized in criminal law.  In many Western nations, one can be charged with conspiracy to commit murder.  In the Bible, we find many conspiracies. When Absalom sought to overthrow David, his plot was rightly described in the King James Bible as a conspiracy.  Twice, the Apostle Paul found himself the object of conspiracies to kill him.  The arrest and crucifixion of Christ was the culmination of a three-year-long conspiracy by the Jewish religious leaders to get rid of the man they perceived, rightly, as a threat to their power.  Doubtless, other examples of conspiracies can be found in the Bible, but these should be sufficient to make the point that conspiracies are not a figment of the imagination, but a documented historical reality. 

If he has done nothing else, Elon Musk has exposed for all the world to see that the “conspiracy theorists” were right.  As the Twitter Files have revealed, the government was deeply involved in the social media censorship business.  Not that there was any lack of evidence of this previously.  For example, the New York Post ran a headline on July 15, 2021, that read, “White House ‘flagging’ posts for Facebook to censor over COVID ‘misinformation.’” The Independent ran a piece on February 3, 2022, with the headline, “White House urges Spotify to take further action on Joe Rogan: “More can be done.’”  Why did the White House want Spotify to censor Joe Rogan?  It was due to the popular podcaster’s explosive interview with Dr. Robert Malone, who among other things, called the hysteria over Covid an example of “mass formation psychosis.”

Vatican City, though small in size, has a worldwide footprint.

It’s been a while since I wrote an installment of Rome Watch, a series of posts designed to highlight the anti-Christian political beliefs and activities of the Roman Catholic Church-State. 

I titled this one “Grab Bag” due to it being a collection of short pieces all with the central theme of Rome’s ongoing attack on political and economic liberty throughout the world. 

Let The Eat Bugs!

Marie Antoinette is famously quoted as saying “Let them eat cake!”  This saying is often held up as a model of aristocratic arrogance directed against the poor.  But while Marie Antoinette is long gone, her spirit marches on.  The 21st century variant on her famous saying seems to be “Let them eat bugs.”  And it should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention that Pope Francis has joined in on the chorus of voices calling for all of us to “reimagine” our eating habits.   

And while Pope Francis didn’t come right out and tell his audience at the EU Youth Conference to eat bugs, he did lecture them to eat less meat

But the Pope’s message was right in line with the World Economic Forum (WEF) that famously put out a video a few years ago saying that by 2030 “You’ll own nothing and be happy.” While I’m entirely sure the Bond villain types that made up the WEF certainly would like it if ordinary people owned nothing by 2030, I’m not sure they’re going to get there. And if they do, of a truth none of us will be happy. 

But what’s often overlooked in that same video is at the 0:34 mark we are told by our “betters” that we’ll eat much less meat.  Further, we are lectured, it meat will be “an occasional treat,” kind of like when you give your dog a bone.  This will be “for the good of the environment and our health.” 

Interesting that the Pope, in his letter to the attendees of the EU Youth Forum, made this same argument.  He wrote, “it would be appropriate to consume less meat:  this too can help save the environment.”

So, what’s the connection to eating bugs?  It’s this.  This WEF has long pushed eating bugs as a solution to what it sees as an environmental problem caused by too many people.  To solve this “problem,” the WEF believes we all must eat less meat and more bugs.  Just take a look at the 2021 WEF video titled “Insects could soon be appearing on restaurant menus in Europe.”

Klaus Schwab really, really wants you to eat the bugs to save the planet.  So does the Pope, but he’s not honest enough to come out and say so.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano

And Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘Take heed that no man deceive you.’”

  • Matthew 24:4

Several times in Scripture, believers are commanded not to be deceived.  The quote at the top of this post is just one of them. 

Unfortunately, many Christians, or at least those who claim to be Christians, are often deceived by the wiles of the devil.  One of the greatest deceptions of our time is the increasing acceptance of the Roman Catholic Church-State (RCCS) as a Christian church and her laymen, priests, nuns, monks, bishops, archbishops, cardinals, and popes as genuine Christians.  This deception has its origin in the Antichrist RCCS and has been eagerly promoted by many leading Evangelicals since the end of WWII, with men such as Billy Graham and Charles Colson leading many astray.

The pro-life movement has been one of Rome’s most effective tools for deceiving Protestants and has led many astray.  “After all,” so the thinking goes, “if the local archdiocese wants to organize a march against abortion or protest in front of an abortion clinic, why shouldn’t Protestants join their brothers and sisters in Christ in the protest?  We’re stronger united than separated.”

But those who think this way go wrong right from the beginning, showing themselves to be deceived about the Church of Rome and its doctrines.  The RCCS is not a Christian church, neither are Roman Catholics Christians.  This is not something spoken out of spite, be a necessary conclusion drawn from the teachings of Rome herself.  The gospel of justification by faith (belief) alone is essential to the Christian faith; Rome denies the gospel of justification by faith (belief) alone; therefore, Rome is not a Christian church.  And what does the Bible teach Christians about ecumenical work with unbelievers?  “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them” (Ephesians 5:11).

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on July 16, 2021 (Photo by BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP via Getty Images)

Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour:  for we are members of one another.

  • Ephesians 4:25

“There has to be, I think, some sort of way  in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard, because they just don’t have any basis in anything that’s actually happening in the world.” 

These words are from a speech by Barak Obama in October 2016, just a few weeks before Donald Trump shocked the world by winning his presidential campaign over the establishment endorsed Hillary Clinton.

In the same speech, Obama went on to deny that he was calling for censorship, noting, “The answer is obviously not censorship, but it’s creating places where people can say ‘this is reliable’ and I’m still able to argue safely abut facts and what we should do about it.” 

Nearly five years later, it’s fair to say that quite obviously Obama and others of his political persuasion were talking about censorship, and this became clear enough last week that even the most ardent deniers of the big government/big tech censorship complex have not excuse for missing the Biden regime’s full-bore attack on the First Amendment. 

Just last week, Biden regime official propagandist Jen Psaki stunned many observers with her admission that the administration is flagging posts for Facebook that are “problematic” because they contain “misinformation” on Covid-19.    

In the same press conference, Psaki voiced her displeasure that Facebook was not deplatforming spreaders of “misinformation” fast enough for her, and presumably, for her boss’s tastes.  She said, “there’s about 12 people who are producing 65 percent of the anti-vaccine misinformation on social media platforms.  All of them remain active on Facebook, despite some even being banned on other platforms, including Facebook – ones that Facebook owns.”

If all that wasn’t enough, Psaki was at it again the next day.  In a Friday 7/17 press conference she offered that, “You shouldn’t be banned from one platform and not other if you – for providing misinformation out there.” 

As the saying goes, I need new conspiracy theories, because all my old ones are coming true.

Seriously, people have speculated for years that the Deep State has been behind much, if not all, of the social media censorship.  But this is right in your face government censorship.  We have what is, in my opinion, an illegitimate government installed through election fraud stomping on the right of American’s to freely access information on a matter that affects all our lives.
