Saith The Preacher

WarIsBad2-732570

~ I’M NOT SURE, but I may have rolled my eyes. Or, more likely, just looked down and hid my expression.

It was the local RC priest preaching that year for the area Remembrance Day church service, and for some reason he was going on about how war is bad, the evils of war, and the military-industrial something or other, and the assembled veterans and family and community members were restless, and angry at this harangue. How needless, and stupid, and offensive. I suppose his college and seminary professors would have all approved.

War! Bad!

And Now, The Rebuttal

The next year, it was my turn to preach. I remembered what had been said the year before. Does anybody really need to tell honest-to-God war veterans that war is horrible, regrettable, wasteful, and messy? No. All I could remember was poring over the photos my Grampa George took of India and Burma, and then– after a certain point– he’d just stop, and get up, crying. The great adventure had that dark side, of deeds done, things seen, friends missing or worse.

r-CANADA-VETERANS-large570

I asked God for the wisdom and strength and sensitivity not to waste such an opportunity, nor to ever throw contempt into the faces and hearts assembled there. So I preached to my Grampa, looking out on a sea of gray hair and wrinkled faces. I spoke about the good and bad of war, of people and places remembered, of God’s love known and seen in the worst of times and present with us still in times of peace and freedom, and I actually said “nobody needs to tell the eyewitnesses that war is hell”. I told the story of my Grampa and his happy memories, and his tears. I also  said that the peace and freedom for which so many suffered and died was still worth fighting for, so that in the Canada of 1995, we might look to save our unborn, 2 000 000 dead in the last 20 years, that Hitler’s dreams of control over others and the weakest might die once and for all. That the sacrifices of those years not be cast away in our time.

The local RC priest looked daggers at me, partly because he knew this was a rebuttal– but directed to speaking the truth in love, and to those gathered men and women. Afterwards, the centotaph ceremony down, a good number of the vets thanked me for my words.

To my surprise, a big old fellow came up to me, and asked about my Grandfather, and the unit he served in during his Burma days (435 “Chinthe” Transport and Rescue Squadron). “Yes, I thought it might be.” He had known my Grampa, and as we talked, he also broke down in tears. He promised to send me something, and a few weeks later, a photocopied 3-4 page article arrived, detailing the unit, the work, and lo and behold, there in the front row of the picture, sleeves rolled up and brown as a nut was my then-young Grandfather, with all the men of his section posing proud and strong.

In 1995, I head the great honour of helping prepare the service, and preaching at, the provincial gathering for the 50th Anniversary of VE Day, in Louisbourg. I did not tell them that war was bad. 1500 gathered vets, family, military officers, chaplains, and all the rest. I did forget the printed copy of my sermon at home, and spent the first 20 minutes of the ceremony surreptitiously writing down my main points on a stray piece of paper. Eep!

Still, And More

For we are ever more at war, against enemies outside and within, of cowards and surrender-minded folks, of people who really aren’t sure if what we have and who we are is worth believing, defending, let alone dying for. Abortion is down slightly, but most of our murdered pre-born kids are killed for reasons of pleasure, hedonism, and social convenience. 100 000 every year; since I preached that sermon, we’ve slaughtered another 900 000. Hitler’s favourite eugenics– getting rid of the handicapped, elderly, and inferior– is now called family planning. The possible next Prime Minister of Canada is an intellectual and moral lightweight, who panders to militant Islam, and acts the dictator within his own party. You’ll remember his spoiled rich father, Pierre Trudeau, the anti-semite and wartime fascist who thought it a great joke to dress up as a Nazi soldier and drive around in Jewish neighbourhoods of Montreal during the war he avoided serving in.

a-boot-stamping-on-a-human-face

In 2014, political correctness and totalitarian progressivism represent an auto-immune disease of Western Societies, weakened inwardly, prey to opportunistic infections like radical Islam, abortionism, feminism, intellectual Leftism, open Communism and anti-semitism, racism and so much more. The battle is not over by a long stretch in each year and age– Hitler may be dead, but Hitlerism, Stalinism, Maoism, and other homegrown forms of dictatorship, death, and societal suicide abide with us. And outside, creeping in the gates, comes the wolfish bloody-handed hordes of Mohammedism, head-cutting and seducing, and presenting an impossibly simplistic universe for the same kind of souls who eagerly joined the SS in Germany. Evil is alive, ever seeking opportunity, blood, souls to mislead, and good things to bring down to ruin.

These our our times, our battles. As the spiritual leader of the war against evil in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth, Gandalf the Grey says:

Other evils there are that may come; for Sauron is himself but a servant or emissary. Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.’ ― Gandalf, ‘The Lord of the Rings’, Book V, Chapter 9.

Let us remember, and so remembering, act. ~

Binks Rant #42,688

Everybody-300x217

~ SERIOUSLY? I do respect conscience, opinion, free thought, and having your own ideas– along with having a real clue about what you are experting away on, a decent education, facts, and a properly formed human life, and religious conscience.

Thus, however common it may be, I can not respect thinking that anyone has a divine right to their own notions somehow being true, sensible, or even likely, just because they happen to believe them. Pooling ignorance does not give you truth; nor does repeating something over and over make it true.

Lots of people will look to the allegedly bad old Middle Ages, when “The Pope Told People What To Think”. That’s bad and inaccurate history, yet how is it better when every man and women thinks they ARE the Pope, the final authority, as it were, on everything?

Wikipedia-PM-cartoon-300x292

The first question is: what is truth? Then, what is true, and how do I know it? We’ve had at least 25,000+ years of civilization, lots of good thinkers, philosophers, story-tellers, playwrights, and even God’s own Son come down from heaven to earth. We all have built-in BS-detectors, if we care to use them properly, and instincts towards truth and goodness, as well as our other instincts and habits of evil and badness.

Howso Whatnow?

This current chaos will not last, because some of us want to be slaves of some ideology or Glorious Leader, others want to be anarchic and parasitical, and yet “all we like sheep have gone astray, every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”

Jesus. Remember him? The real one– risen, victorious, glorified, ruling over all things, even times like these. Our choices are narrowing ever more, and I will say this in praise of the Islamic Statists– just like ‎Robespierre, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao– they know Jesus and his true followers are the most dangerous of their opponents. Because we are alive, believe in truth, and love, and assert– in the face of statism, terrorism, eugenicism, and all the other works of the Devil– that Jesus is Lord, to the Glory of God the Father.

Cue Evil Vicar

There is some truth in what ‘The Evil Vicar’ says, just (since it’s a comedy bit) not in how he says it.

“‘Not particularly religious’? ‘Interested’? ‘Spiritual’? Are you testing me, Satan?

“Steady on, my wife’s entitled to her views.”

“Oh, isn’t she just? Aren’t you all entitled to your half-assed musings on the divine? You’ve thought about eternity for 25 minutes, and think you’ve come to some interesting conclusions?”

In our very serious times, we can live in denial, drown in entertainment, follow the mindless herd and the talking heads, or wake up and get serious (in a lighthearted way, since treating important things with modesty and humour means you recognize their importance).

Serious matters are happening all around us. Will we doze and dream, and idly wonder where we are headed, and why we are in a handcart?

What will we live or die for? What is worth fighting for? What is worth handing down to our children and grandchildren? In a few days, just after we have buried a 25 year old man shot by a terrorist, we will remember other days, and other young people either killed, or passed on, or now grown old, all those who offered their lives on the altar of freedom in two world wars, so that the horrible experiment of a renegade Germany might finally be ended.

There are our days, our fields of rocks, our battles. ~

etc_emergency21__01__630x420

~ EMERGENCY! CRISIS! SHOCK! When bad stuff happens, it affects us physically, mentally, spiritually. We need to *do* something.

Do it. Here are some brilliant suggestions.

~ Donate to the families of the recent terror-victims. Get out to Remembrance Day this year.

~ Get a solid first aid program under your belt. CPR, triage, wound treatment, basic stuff. Refresh every 5 years.

~ Get ready at home: for storm, power outages, and unpredictables. Fire extinguisher, escape plan. 

~ Get ready in your car. Get a car first aid kit, and a car emergency kit. Consider keeping an emergency window-breaker knife on your belt or in your purse. Maybe even a “Tire Tester” for any pesky “tires”. Escape, and self-protection.

~ Pay attention to your environment. Dangerous circumstances, wild animals, bad neighbourhoods, iffy people. Don’t look like a victim waiting to happen, get out of trouble as fast as possible.

There.. now dontcha feel better?

Me So Happy!

Get Preparated!

emergency prepare

– TEH BINKS IS not a prepper, nor prepped for any emergency past about a week. Like most of us, I have a couple of weeks worth of food here and there, a few candles (power black-out), a wood-stove (even though the genius NS government is pushing heat pumps instead, which work *so* well without power), a plethora of flashlights, a BBQ (powerless cooking), and a bottled water thingy (2-3 bottles if a big storm is a-coming). Worse comes to worse, there is water in the water heater; some tools & weapons around the house, couple of wind-up radios.. but nothing like, say, a one month extended emergency might require.

Truth is, in two generations we have mostly gone from the self-sufficiency of gardening, small-farming, canning, sewing, knitting, bottling, hunting, home-baking people… into fast-food insta-meal somebody has to look after me, just-in-time, not just in case people (and that includes our food-stores, pharmacies, and hospitals). Just-In-Time is cheaper, less storage costs.

Food: It Comes From The Fridge!

Food: It Comes From.. The Fridge!

Why, Back In MY Day

I remember working as a bag-boy & stock boy at a supermarket in 1979. Built under the story was a huge stock-filled warehouse of products. Now, in most supermarkets, there is no such warehouse. Most have 3 days of food. Similar efficiencies abound in pharmacies & hospitals– all presume that the supply-chain will always function, to bring new drugs of medical supplies, no matter what.

Because when you need insulin or your heart-meds or antibiotics, a week or two shouldn`t be a problem, right? Someone will bring us food & water when our cupboards and supermarkets run out, no doubt.

Some Resources

Remember to take into consideration the sick, elderly, those needing prescriptions, and your pets. Also, how and with what you will defend yourself from intruders & looters, wild animals, or other problems. Remember any special items needed to prepare for any particular local risks: flood, earthquake, tornado, hurricane, volcano, epidemic, etc.

Learn up now; watch some basic YouTube videos. You don`t have to be a bunkerized prepper to be prepared.

If you do want to be (at least) power-outage & man-made or natural disaster resistant, here are some links to at least give you some starter-ideas.

What Rough Beasts

~ ITEM: THOUGHTS AFTER LAMBETH by Eliot, T.S.

~ ITEM: T. S. Eliot’s Christian Society: Still Relevant Today?

~ THE WISE SEE what is coming, what rough beast is slouching towards Bethlehem– they feel it in their bones; they read the signs of the times; Israel had her prophets– modernity has had a few great-hearted poets and writers, readers of the soul & the world, truth-tellers in the ever-dishonest times.

We are in the middle of a three-way collision: rational life-giving Christianity, irrational suicidal non-Christian Islam, and irrational suicidal non-Christian Secularism. To both irrationals, Christ is the great enemy. His claims are blasphemy. His followers are pure evil. The free civilization and free societies built in his name must be enslaved, one way, or the other.

T.S. Eliot, prophetical poet & essayist.

T.S. Eliot, prophetical poet & essayist.

“The World is trying the experiment of attempting to form a civilized but non-Christian mentality. The experiment will fail; but we must be very patient in awaiting its collapse; meanwhile redeeming the time: so that the Faith may be preserved alive through the dark ages before us; to renew and rebuild civilization, and save the World from suicide.”

―From T. S. Eliot’s essay “Thoughts after Lambeth.” [1931]

And from another gift from God to our insane times, comes this wisdom and warning about discerning good from evil:

“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”

― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956

It would be lovely & convenient to exempt ourselves from this cataclysmic collision, but there is no neutrality in reality.  ~

It All Depends

kumbaya

~ IT ALL DEPENDS WHAT YOU think is actually going on– and therefore what needs to be said and done– on what you think is real and true.

For instance, if you were born in the 60s, and tend Leftwards, you think it’s all about getting people into the Kumbayah circle, generating positive feelings, and perhaps some weed-smoke, and the world will come together in peace, love, and flowers. The 60s were an optimistic time, and old barriers and conflicts were going to be fixed by the UN, and fine-sounding words, and becoming subtly Communist & worldly. This fulfilled that part of the European revolutionary spirit of the 1840s. Utopia, next stop! Happy happy, joy joy, everything is awesome!

Do You Smell Smoke?

However, what if the real situation is that we are in a burning Minas Tirith, surrounded by countless entrenched orcs, wargs, Nazgul, and other monsters; within the walls are despair, treachery, not enough warriors, and a fading spirit. There are a few hidden away in the burning city singing Kumbayah or the Gondorian equivalent, but they are worse than useless. Even worse? somehow, The Enemy is in control of the people running things. And there’s plenty of blame to go around, not just based on your habits of mind, group-think, or the alleged general consensus.

siegemt

Where’s your ‘Kumbaya’ now, puny mortals?

Wait, It Gets Worse!

Sadly, many of the churches of our time worship big government, the spirit of the age, and feelings over facts and faith. That is, the church militant– the church fighting the good fight here below cheered on by the angels, saints, martyrs and faithful ones of the church above– is making Kumbayah, not spiritual war, against the world, the flesh, and the devil. Think cops on permanent donut-break whilst the criminals run wild.

To a real extend, this is the fault of Rome. When the Roman Catholics get a sniffle, the protestants get double pneumonia. Vatican II was a mess. It replaced evangelism with ecumenism; truth with consensus (a.k.a. the pooling of ignorance & contradiction in search of truth); worship with self-regarding spectacle; a world-culture with a divided weak waffling ‘spirit’. A house divided cannot stand.

C’mon Rome– Kumbayah? Ecumenism with Muslim prayers at the Vatican? All happy times, and ever onwards and upwards? Great, big massive lies, with feckin’ bells hanging off them! Please, Pope Bergoglio: show me in the Bible where Jesus ever said that he came to bring peace, flowers, and Kumbayah, and that the march of the church is like a bunch of hippies skipping through a field of flowers. Where he said that we should surrender to other faiths, or to a worldly feel-good agnosticism.

lalaland-jaysu

La lalala lalalala la la, la

So which is it?

The one thing I know and feel in my bones is that the more we deny the fact of darkness in ourselves, the world, and in spiritual places, the more we’ve wandered into a self-decieving la-la land, while failing to recognize we’re in a minefield. In the fog. At night. Having no clear idea which way to go. And the darkness knows it.

The more we live in denial, the more we excuse ourselves from these time, OUR times, which require wakeful, wise, brave people to fight against and to name the evils around us, within us, and threatening us. ~

~ DEAR OLD Hitler loved it.  Because master-race. Purity. Even though he himself had a physical problem, and was part-Jewish.

Get rid of the retards, cripples, gypsies, Jews, homosexuals, socialists, communists, non-Nazi journalists, and all the other human debris and pests. Had a whole bunch of government programs to clean the gene pool up, including total war.

EuthanasiePropaganda

Everybody’s Doing It

Eugenics was quite popular with all the cool kids in the early 20th century, along with other horrid notions like enforced sterilization, abortion, breeding programs, euthanasia, and suchlike. They breed horses and flowers, right? And they shoot horses, don’t they?

After The Hitler, eugenics had to re-invent itself.. hence abortion, the pill, euthanasia (compassionate good death, if you want weasel-words) willing or otherwise, and all the other ideas & practice of The Culture Of Death.

In the West, even as our desire to baby is vanishing, our desire to have ourselves murdered is increasing a little, and  some governments are kinda into it, and trying to enforce it. No doubt this has utterly nothing to do with the uber-selfishness of many modern people; their lack of fear of God & judgment for suicide; and especially not the the catastrophically expensive wave of old people known as Baby Boomers now starting to need old-person drugs, care, facilities, and hospital-care– even as socialism is collapsing from over-spending on the social safety net. Ironic and tragic hilarity to ensue?

Oh, Canada

In Canada, Alex Schadenberg amongst others have been fighting cases across Canada to oppose euthanasia. The killing of old, sick, disabled, pain-stricken, depressed, and elderly people by doctors and nurses: sometimes with, more often against their wills, as the experience in Belgium and the Netherlands has shown over the past 25 years and more.

Please support his work as generously as possible, and be forewarned: euthanasia– like many other Liberal notions– is just as clueless, destructive, and full of what they like to call “unintended consequences”. Plus, huge piles of corpses.. some of them people you knew and loved.

~ ITEM: 1912 Eighth Grade Examination for Bullitt County Schools

~ ITEM: Newly Discovered Eighth Grade Exam From 1912 Shows How Dumbed Down America Has Become 

~ VIA THE INTERNETS, this 1912 test made the rounds a while back. It’s a very interesting document, and mostly predates the scariest of edumacational machinations and manipulations of the 20th century, and the plague of experts infesting society ever since.

If the test were updated to 2014, and the proper teaching and content were given, we could all pass this. Ay, there’s the rub.

After all, modern teaching propaganda is fact-lite and method-heavy, the infamous “We don’t teach kids WHAT to think, but HOW to think.” Which makes as much sense as saying “We don’t teach kids what a bike is, but how to ride properly.” It’s a false either/ or that avoids the issue.  Mills need grist. Brains need facts, and suitable learning strategies for each step in human growth.

Me Alma Mater, Halifax. Now gone.

Me Alma Mater, Halifax. Now gone.

Bzz Bzzzz Bz

The false dichotomy of learning versus facts (amongst many other ills) is why despite all the piles of money, at far too many colleges and post-secondary institutions in 2014, the first year is partly remedial math, reading, spelling, and wording more gooder. I.E., too many kids have learned neither how to think, or what to think about, but have been thoroughly propagandized (and rendered numb and cynical about) about recycling, global warming, sodomy, bully-free zones, the evils of non-liberalism and Christianity, the amazingness of progressive political leaders, and other quite tertiary matters. They have the radical critique, but are not allowed to learn what’s being critiqued, why, and whether it’s fair, or true, or balanced, or not.

The product? Busy little worker drones, buzzing away at whatever, most young skulls filled with undigested mush.

Neither Fish, Nor Fowl

It’s not a classical, or a old-style liberal education (pre- & early 20th century). I once had a gander at the She-Binks’ Grandmother’s old Grade 9 text-book, from a similar time as the document above (she lived unto 105). It was full of high-school-level maths, literature, spelling, Shakespeare, history, Latin, poetry, geography, anatomy, basic sciences, and many other subjects. It really did shock me, compared to my then-recent High School education, which was still better than what most students receive in 2014. Not as good as 1912 Grade 9.

In Nova Scotia, it is possible to graduate Grade 12 with honours without having taken (as in my day) 6+ years of history, covering ancient, medieval, early modern & modern, and Canadian history.  That is, knowing nearly nothing about your place, time, origins, how we got here, and who fought for what, and where freedom came from, and what the Pyramids are, and the Cathedral at Chartres…. well, most of history.

One Room Schoolhouses: the nursery of greatness.

One Room Schoolhouses: the nursery of greatness.

Nanny Schools?

In the olden curricula, you were more educated by grade 9 than most kids are by grade 12, and proud of your accomplishment, and skilled at many things, and given the basics of civilized truth, reading, ‘riting, ‘rithmatic, and much else besides. It was mentally, and even socially elevating, and aspiration united to education could literally mean the child of poor unlettered parents might go to college, or learn a new trade or career, and rise socially in the world.

What do we see? White or immigrant kids taking Afro-Canadian history and literature, while remaining ignorant of their heritages. Grade 12 calculus aced by people who have trouble spelling, or can’t tell you any meaning to 1066 or Magna Carta or World War 2. Well, second things first, I guess. The modern educational baby-sitting of teens from 15-18 is literally a waste of time, and could be used for college, apprenticeships, and practical training (as was true in of England in Tudor times).

school_sucks_by_GothixBE

Skool Sucks

The squishiness of most modern approaches also teaches kids that learning is boring; that facts don’t matter; that all Left-wing political truths are good and true, and that there’s no such thing as a moral life aside from recycling properly, drinking politically correct coffee, and being decent to your friends. FAIL.

More and more, smart & curious kids must discover great books, learn great art, architecture, poetry, drama, history– and all the amazing and terrible and interesting things people have ever done– outside our educational system, which almost seems to exist for the good of teacher’s unions, curriculum spinners, utopian social engineers, and worker-drone making. We are making an idiocracy.

Honesty, For Once: Slouches The Rough Beast

~ ITEM: Harvard Group Is Hosting a Reenactment of a Satanic Black Mass; and, more from the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club

~ ITEM: UPDATE– Letter to Harvard President Drew G. Faust about the Satanic Mass to Take Place on the Campus of Harvard

~ ITEM: UPDATE– Dawn Eden Chimes In– “Harvard can do better than give a platform to a “Black Mass” promoter who ridicules sex abuse victims“. Boom, baby. MUST READ. Further, Elizabeth Scalia, The Anchoress, blew the lid off this story. Read her coverage

~ IT’S LIKE peeling a rotting onion– finally, the vaguely Christian then Unitarian then not much of anything Harvard comes clean– the father of Lies, The First Rebel, the Accuser and Deceiver and Hater… is at the heart of the anti-moral Progressive spirit. A satanic ritual as allegedly dispassionate “cultural study”, because everything is relative, and good in its own way, and there’s no boogie-man under the spiritual bed.

So let’s “re-enact” a black mass (and mock the holiest things of Catholicism, of course)! Who are these idiots?– teens with a Ouija board at the start of a horror-movie? It’s the very height of pride combined with stupidity to call on darkness: because when you summon it, darkness may come, seeking souls to eat, and lives to wreck, and places to haunt.

It is the very presumption of the soulless modern experiment that one should live a life spiritually uncommitted, and that “being mostly good” is the very most that we can reasonably expect of anybody. In reality, supernature abhors a vacuum. Or as Jesus said, an empty soul is an invitation to darkness. We all have a choice to make, now, and for eternity– ‘none of the above’ is not an option.

So Inspiring

Remember: radical wrecker Saul Alinsky dedicated his book to the Arch-Wrecker Lucifer. For at the heart of destroying faith, family, and foundations is no good spirit, no redeeming Lord, but the Dark gibbering idiot, fallen archangel, grumbling grudge-muncher, and fool.

Forget playing your rock albums backwards– many of them (and our mass media) say cheerfully Satanic things when played forwards. Self. Me, my, mine. Rules? What rules? Don’t tell me what to do. YOLO. What is truth? Who says you can’t do that?  If it feels good….

Wanting to play at black masses is already satanic, and impious curiousity gone quite insane.. and wicked. Harvard reaches an anti-apotheosis.

Because Diversity & Inclusives

Let’s forecast the future– in the spirit of inclusion, future school curricula will include ‘exploring satanism’, as part of diversity (i.e., erasing every bright spot or remnant of innocence, Christianity, family, and morality from young souls). “It’s part of the program”– sorry, parents, think of the school as co-parents, since we have your kids for 1/3 of the waking day. You see them in the morning, and supper, and talk with them for exactly how long each day? That’s less time than they spend on their smart phones.

Pray for these addled fools at Harvard, that they and those exposed to such evil not be harmed, and be led to the Lord. Because such things are real, and not to be trifled with. Think of these folks as naughty kids in a dark wood when they hear a roaring beast close by.. that’s the spiritual reality of what they are at.

Vade retro satana

“Let the Holy Cross be my light /

Let not the dragon be my guide

Step back Satan / Never tempt me with vain things

What you offer me is evil / You drink the poison yourself.”

Via Steve Skojec:

“When he was 12 years old, St. Tarcisius, an acolyte, was beaten to death by a Roman mob that wanted to take the Eucharist from his possession.

The Sacraments of Christ being carried by Saint Tarsicius,
When a vulgar profane gang would have overwhelmed the Wholesome Things,
He willed to release his soul by being cut down
Rather than give up the Celestial Members to rabid dogs.

When threatened with a Satanic black Mass in their diocese — and the use of a real, consecrated host for purposes of desecration — the best the Archdiocese of Boston can come up with is this wimpy bit of nothing statement. Pathetic:

STATEMENT OF THE ARCHDIOCESE OF BOSTON

The Catholic community in the Archdiocese of Boston expresses its deep sadness and strong opposition to the plan to stage a “black mass” on the campus of Harvard University in Cambridge.

For the good of the Catholic faithful and all people, the Church provides clear teaching concerning Satanic worship. This activity separates people from God and the human community, it is contrary to charity and goodness, and it places participants dangerously close to destructive works of evil.

In a recent statement, Pope Francis warned of the danger of being naïve about or underestimating the power of Satan, whose evil is too often tragically present in our midst. We call upon all believers and people of good will to join us in prayer for those who are involved in this event, that they may come to appreciate the gravity of their actions, and in asking Harvard to disassociate itself from this activity.”
