~ PETITION: Free the ND 88 Petition Launched – Asks Notre Dame to Drop Charges against Pro-Life Protesters

January 13, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Today, a petition to “Free the Notre Dame 88” was launched. The petition is co-sponsored by Human Life International (HLI), the Thomas More Society and LifeSiteNews.com. It is addressed to University of Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins, and urges him publicly to ask that the charges against the 88 pro-lifers who were arrested on the Notre Dame campus in May of last year be dropped.

Binks Says: Let’s Do Some Good

Haiti was struck yesterday by the worst earthquake in 200 years— a massive magnitude 7.0, equivalent to the force of a 32 megaton bomb— followed by powerful aftershocks.

We can do some real good in Haiti, because (1) It’s a nominally Catholic country (not a failed Jihad-state), and (2) there are reputable & established aid work programs there (like World Vision).

~ ITEM: AMERICAN DIGEST– Not Man Apart; Something Wonderful: Why Beauty is Important

~ WHEN THE RIGHT PEOPLE hate you, it’s better than a basket of fan-letters.

This Christmas– as most years– my dear baby brother comes to visit us and his nephews, Teh Binklings for a day or three. He always brings thoughtful gifts, too.. X-Box games for the twins, a book and Parisian scarf for She-Binks, a icon-cross and all-sorts for Teh Binks.. nothing for the poodle, however, whom he had not known of until he stepped into the house.

The Binks BB is a bureaucrat, and spent most of his adult life a professional student. Along the way– via squishy leftoid ‘disciplines’ like sociology, psychology, and law, he never got exposed to non-Marxist ideas, except as something to mock and ignore. It makes political discussions when he visits rather– er– lively, and utterly futile.

As the recent e-mail I recieved from some Turko-Islamist illustrates– or any Marxist website or pundit shows forth– their inability to think logically is combined with insults & totalist instincts towards their dehumanized enemies. It’s sad.

As a lover of wisdom, I do try to think through both sides of an argument or position, so as to better understand my own principles. It means a comprehensive view, larger than a one-sided conservative or liberal position. I don’t mind folks who have strongly held views of whatever sort, but attack and dehumanizing crosses a line.

After all, whatever his views, I have a loving brother, and The Binklings a wonderful and generous uncle– that’s what’s important, not whether he’s ideological correct. Unpersoning is a horrible side-effect of nasty ideology: there is always a real human there, however imperfect or wrong-headed. Communism and Jihadism share this, in that nothing is good about, and anything is permitted upon, the officially evil class of unpersons, whether “enemy of the revolution” or “Jew-ape-pig/ stinking kuffar”…except the status of useful idiot, or exploited scum.

So Mr. Turkish patriot hates me, perhaps wills my death, because of my kuffarness, and criticizing the all-holy jihad-state of Turkey. If I found him in need, I would feed and help him as I was able, and should the occasion come up, talk to him about Turkey or Islam, or Jihad, and the rest. Why? Because I’m by choice and effort and good luck a civilized Westerner, the heir of Greece, Rome, The Jews, and Christianity. The Golden Rule and Samaritanism is not an occasional option, nor rationality, kindness, and self-sacrifice when called for, by the example and ongoing divine life of God in Christ in me, in others, and through the providential changes and chances of this fleeting life.

For I would be a man, to live and die as a Christian and a Westerner, not a coward or a traitor, nor orc-like hater of all things good, beautiful and true simply because it is wrong-think according to the Sauron & Mordor Propaganda Department.

Too bad, right? The soft-totalitarians of the West and the hard totalitarians of the Jihad here and abroad will only conquest and destruction, and are the enemies of the best things and good people of the West.

It can’t be clearer than that, and the sooner we admit the truth and fight for it, the better our chances, if we and our treasures are worth fighting for, renewing, and handing on. ~

~ IT SEEMS THE O-MESSIAH never met a Presidential test he didn’t fail.

“Many commentators on the web are chuckling about the incident — “Ha-ha! He set fire to his crotch!” — but it increasingly looks like we came amazingly close to a horrific Christmas massacre, with 289 innocent lives lost in the air and God knows how many on the ground.”


The Victoria’s Secret Bomber– or whatever the wits of the Twitsphere has finally settled on– is serious (1) since it was over Canada/ U.S. soil, and (b) makes clear that the Most Loveable POTUS Ever Who Brings Peace On Earth meme is dead, staked in the heart, buried, dug up, burnt, and reburied even deeper in an unhallowed and unmarked grave.

A Win-Win Thing

The North American Jihad is a two-track affair, with stealth Jihadism via the RIS Conference, and ISNA & CAIR & company advancing the political-cultural side, and the occiasonal terror-plan/ massacre advancing the scary/ disheartening side.

Now that air travel is even more a massively intrusive and time-wasting security check with a little flying on the side, the Islamist Thong-Bomber has done real economic and societal damage, whether he actually lit his tighty-whiteys on fire and asploded or not.

Those new 3-4+ hour check-ins & fresh humiliations and inconveniences? Endless flight delays & disruptions for airlines and airports? Literally billions of work and vacation hours and irreplaceable bits of human lifetimes wasted proving you’re not a suicidal & mass-murdering Muslim, versus being an ass-kicking Dutch Guy or an ordinary schlub or schlubette? Priceless.

And as all the pundits are correctly noting, the radical semi-Muslim Obama has failed (again) with bells on, acting positively negligent, if not nearly cheerful that America and Americans and their freedoms and safety are under threat for the umpty-nineteenth time from the usual foaming-mouth bronze-age feck-witted suspects.

It All Makes Sense

Perhaps he’s off his meds, you wonder. Consumed by the in-house politicking of ramming through his power-grab tax-heavy health plan? Just having a bad day? I say not: there’s a larger pattern at work. Indeed, perhaps his mental health and psychological issues are having real-world effects now that he’s under a lot of strain. But let’s look deeper.

The disconnect? The POTUS is no mystery, here: he’s a wrecker and a nihilist, dreaming of an America that never was nor ever can be, and every little bit of misery advances the fall of wicked Imperialist Racist Sexist Unjust Capitalist Christist America. It’s all in preparation for the Marxist & perfect equalitarian Utopistan Mr. Obama imagines that he and his will cause to be, despite the will and wishes of most loyal Americans, and the shape of her life and history to this point– and even in full defiance of the will of Almighty God towards the United States, imperfect as she always will be.

Now revisit his reaction, hasty news-conference, sleeping in, vacationing, and other strange behaviour around this incident, and it all begins to make sense. Unlike the Paleostinians, it’s not about never failing to miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. He’s simply not on our side, and it’s becoming blindingly clear. He’s loyal to his USSA yet to come, not the U.S. of A. as it is, or might become.

It’s all about “Death To America”, right? whether from the radical or jihadist side, and by their many and various means to the same end.

Oh, and the new regulations? More ineffective feel-good airport kabuki-theatre to punish everybody else for not being bad Muslims. ~

Going Rogue?

HM The Steve™?

~ ITEM: Prorogue! Well, it seems it’s on until March 3rd

~ ITEM: No rogue in prorogue, or, dictator my; The Imperial Prime Minister

~ ITEM: Parliament prorogued (again)

~ ONCE IS PERHAPS a novelty.. twice is a habit. It’s not Prime Ministerial, or even presidential.. it’s nigh on royal. Stephen Harper has a bad rad-protestant habit of doing what seems good to him, period.

I’m hardly happy about being on the same side as Rabble.ca and suchlike, but the PM simply must observe the rule of law and the habit of established parliamentary procedure: it’s not optional, nor a personal preference. Setting things aside (or being good little voters and keeping quiet when it’s Our Guy) just won’t do. Picture an Iggy-Layton coalition trampling everything to push their socialist utopianism.. via such prorogueish circumventions.

That way lies more and worse for Canuckistan, and I think it stinks higher than a bloated cod on a Summer day that Steve™ is the one setting such a truly bad precedent. We’ve already got one would-be tinpot dictator South of the border, and had our fill here with King Trudeau, CEO Mulroney, and Mafia Godfather Chretien.

Too much a weather-vane to keep to his socon roots, now we’ve got a greater betrayal of Conservatives and conservatives by making it appear we all agree with the PM’s playing fast and loose with parliamentary democracy.

Really, Steve™? Is all this the best you can do for your voters, and for Canada? Are you trying to make Iggy look like a legitimate alternative? Stupid politics, bad decision all ’round, and free ammo for an otherwise floundering opposition. Did PMO & Cabinet IQs drop sharply when the cold weather struck Canada? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, guys?

Next federal election, I may just stay home and vote ‘none of the above’ for a change. ~

P.S. In my conversation with evil Jewbot Ezra Levant, he wrote back:

“Yours is a fair point of view. And if the roles were reversed, and it was a Liberal government trying it, I’m sure I’d find a partisan way to be upset. But what’s really going on here? Instead of a six-week Christmas holidays (or whatever), we’ve got a 12-week holidays (or whatever).

Is there any urgent legislation afoot that has been killed? The opposition claims it’s to silence the Afghan committee (which is looking into four-year-old policies crafted by the Liberals that were tightened up two years ago).

But those committees weren’t even meeting before the prorogation, because the Tories weren’t showing up. If all this is truly offensive to the opposition, they can bring down this government as soon as it reconvenes. I’ll bet you a dollar they won’t.

I can think of a good reason to prorogue: the composition of the Senate will change with new appointees, and without proroguing, the opposition would still run the committees, even though the government would have a majority — very undemocratic.

On prorogation, I really don’t care too much — personally, I wish Parliament met less often, and fewer laws were passed, and government in general were smaller and a less important part of our lives. I see this as the consummate inside-the-bubble issue, that journalists care about and nobody else in the country does. Put this on the stack with the hype over H1N1 vaccines and every other gimmick that no citizens cared about in 2009.

I wish we had an opposition that actually opposed on real substantive issues — economics, justice, foreign policy, etc. — not just nibbled at any gimmick of the week. Just my two cents!

Ezra Levant”

With Boots On

~ SOME COMMENTER offers some useful & non-profane comments on the Toronto Islamopalooza… imagine that.

“IRFAN was the same Org. that showed its face at the Mississauga “MuslimFest” and co-sponsored by CAIR/CAIR-Canada.

During the Hezballah Terrorism of 2006 (towards a Democratic U.N. Member State) it was that August MuslimFest where I saw IRFAN asking for Donations to support their Muslims Brothers in Lebanon against the Oppressive occupiers killing civilian.

The real tragedy was that Liberal MP Parrish is in a Arab new article claiming that MuslimFest was great and all non-Muslims should go to it to benefit from it.

Little did MP Parrish know that a Website Outside of Canada had posted news that CAIR would have Workshops for Muslim youths to know their mission of Jihad for Allah, the website detailed how Canada must become a Caliphate under Shariah Law and that Jihad could one day be raised to Violence.

Seems that the Lawyers at CAIR and other Pro-Shariah Org.’s know exactly how to use our Charter Of Rights and know that they must speak the “Passive-Islam” in English type or spoken words to the MSM, BUT….in private they use the strict Arab text Qurans which does teach Taqiyyah (lying for allah’s cause)to befriend us filthy pigs before resorting to war to convert us.

CAIR keeps saying there are close to 1,000,000 Muslims in Canada, so why did only 17000 show up? Could it be that the 983,000 left are no in agreement with the RIS version of Peaceful Islam.

Even if the 1 million is right, that’s still only 1/1500th of the Muslims outside of Canada.


Remembering May

~ ITEM: With This Cup, We Do Battle

~ ON VEGGIES & JESUS– In terms of our insane news-cycle, murdered sick lady Terri Schiavo (who was sick & brain-damaged, neither vegetative nor brain-dead) is now back there somewhere in the dusty archives alongside the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871.

However, the ongoing threat to sick & disabled folk, the nuisance elderly and suchlike (which is why I make merciless ironical mock about feebs, crips, tards, veggies and such) are never more under threat than as time passes, and the will to protect them corrodes. Never mind unfriendly inlaws wanting to speed granny to the hereafter so they can grab what they’re  after– as the 2000’s continue, it’s hard to get decent treatment in some places without being neglected or bumped off by hospitals.

Binks, Coward

I came across a lot of these hard cases myself during training and parish pastoring. I met a lady named May in a local hospital, who after here massive stroke was (I was told) ‘brain dead’.. who’d been stuck in the left to die ward. Following the principle of doing unto others, and that a person’s soul may be ‘awake’ and able to receive grace, even when a coma or apparent unresponsiveness was the case, I always prayed with and for such folks, some of whom were abandoned by relatives. I’d also chat with them about weather, what day it was, and such ordinary stuff.

Each time I prayed with and for May– every time– I noticed that she wept. I also noted that her pale blue eyes followed me if I moved about the bed, or entered and left the room. That wasn’t exactly the behaviour of a ‘vegetable’, but of someone debilitated with a stroke, yet still conscious, and somewhat aware of herself and her surroundings, not to mention other people. Like Terri Schiavo.

I started to ask her questions, using a “one blink for yes, two blinks for no” system– and as a test, I’d ask her about things around her. If it were sunny, for example, I’d ask her “Is it cloudy today, May?” Two Blinks.  Or, “Have I visited here before, May?” One blink. “May, are you in your own home, right now?” Two blinks. “Are you hungry, May?” One blink. Using that simple system, we had great long conversations, simply based on her yes/no answers.

“May, do you want me to tell your family about our conversations?”

One very deliberate blink. Pause. Another very deliberate blink. Pause. Another very deliberate blink. Then tears.

She was aware, trapped, afraid, being talked about by family and medical staff (who probably knew better) as if she were already dead. May was also being deliberately starved to death. Unfed. To feeding tube, nothing except a mouth-swab to keep her mouth dry. After all, she was a vegetable, right? No brain activity. An unperson, safely to be disposed of.

Based on her decision, I wrote a note to her family, and left it on her bedside table.

Dear WXYZ Family:

May is not brain-dead. I’ve been able to have conversations with herover the last few days, using blinks, and yes/no answers. She is aware!

Please check with your doctors, and consider a feeding-tube. She says she is hungry, and afraid. I can help you to talk to her, so you can see for yourselves.


ABCD, Pastoral Care Student Minister

A day later, I got called up on the Hospital carpet, and threatened with immediate flunking & expulsion from the program if I continued to visit this patient or “harrass and upset” her family. That day, I chose the coward’s way.

One Less Nuisance

So dear May died– I’m ashamed to say– without any more visits from me, nor food & help from the hospital, nor understanding by her family.. unless they did know and wished her death, no matter what might be possible.

Since then, I had thousands more encounters with hospitals and similar policies, and always told people to fight for the right, presumed the patient in question could hear and was aware, and told the families to always assume so. I also always prayed for and with them, and gave them holy communion as well– the merest crumb of wine-soaked sacrament, whether they were on their way to a brighter and eternal shore, or on the way to recovery.

I’d check with often puzzled families on this: “If PQRS were awake, would they normally receive holy communion?” If affirmative, I’d also add– well, their mind may be asleep, but their soul is awake, and you never know if they can hear us or not– it will be a blessing, a healing, and give them spiritual and physical strength.”

For each one is precious; death and life are God’s business; and the mind and soul and body are still mysteries far above any science or medicine to define, or hospital bureaucrat or death-culture expert to commodify or redefine.

I’m so abidingly and deeply sorry, dear May, my sister in Christ– but your life was not wasted, nor your sad and lonely death. This article? One more gift from you to the wider world; a voice for you who had lost yours and been finally silenced forever by a cruel system, and uncaring and misunderstanding people.

Perhaps– according to the infinite mercies of God, and our hope of salvation, if I am not cast away unto eternal death, then we may both rejoice together– and freely talk about all this– in that bright and evergreen land prepared by God for those who love him, where with risen and deathless bodies we may laugh and dance and sing, for death and sin and pain and tears shall be no more.

And may God have mercy on our blood-stained society, for Terri, and May, and all the rest.

A few prayers for May and all such:

Jesus saith.. “I AM the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.” St John 11. 25, 26.

Rest eternal grant unto her, O God, and may light perpetual shine upon her. Amen.

O ALMIGHTY God, the God of the spirits of all flesh: Multiply, we beseech thee, to those who rest in Jesus, the manifold blessings of thy love, that the good work which thou didst begin in them may be perfected unto the day of Jesus Christ. And of thy mercy, O heavenly Father, grant that we, who now serve thee here on earth, may at the last, together with them, be partakers of the inheritance of the Saints in light; for the sake of the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Amen.

Safe At Last!

~ FINALLY, SOME fearless commentators on his own site exposed blogger Blazing CatFur as the real danger to Canada: associate of scary Jews, probable fascist, misanthropic hater, bane of kindly bureaucrats, and general nuisance to humanity. The ugly truth is out.

One of his commenters took no little time whilst apparently defending the recent hate-marchers in Toronto– replete with Nazi salutes, the usual Leftists and union-thugs, anti-Semites, heavy-handed Islamo-fascism and thuggery, and open support for Hamas and its terror-regime against their own people, Israel & Jews, and the world in general. This march during a gathering of 17000 Muslims exposed to a putrid mix of Jihadists, terror-sympathizers, and Islamo-supremacist speakers and “experts” in downtown Toronto (who issued no condemnation of the following). All while the XMas undie-bomber had recently flown overhead, trying to blow up a plane over Southern Ontario/ Michigan.

But remember, folks: Arnie the Blazing Catfur blogger is the REAL threat, the hate-problem we all face, ruining Canada and niceness and all that. Glad we could warn you about him. It’s people like him wot cause unrest. Hatred. Wars. Terrorism. Mean blogging and inconvenient fact-finding.

Bad Arnie! ~

~ FESTIVE THANKS & COUNTER-GREETINGS to all who sent along their seasonal best (and a few goodies). Seeing that I’ve been wished ‘Merry Christmas’ by Christian blogers & readers, plus a number of Jews, an agnostic or two, and a cheerful Iraqi Shi’a Muslim immigrant to Canada (a neighbour visiting the Binks HQ a day or two ago), we must be doing something right around here!

Yes, that’s right– whilst I deplore and ravage Jihadism, any particular Muslim people of good will are children of God first, and individuals, deserving of respect.. and friendship where it occurs. Unlike kuffar-hating Jihadists, or Marxists versus enemies of thier revolting revolutions, I try not to utterly dehumanize folks via ideology.

Having felt such first hand as a traditional Anglican in a revolutionizing institutional church, where you become a hated abstraction, a They™, a walking symbol of the rejected and rightful basics of the old religion, I can tell you: it sucks eggs.

Here’s to a non-utopian Christ-child, who did not leave us to wallow in sinful alienation and abstraction, but who loves each one, and began his eternal kingdom here below by his own blood, that men and women and children of all races and nations and particularities might know God– and through the blessings of the Only-Begotten Son, partake of everlasting unity and individual fulfilment in Him.

So Merry Christmas, one and all! ~

No, I’ve not hived off due to generous bribes and cases of The GlenLivet to fight on behalf of the jihad, or Iggy, or Obama, mmkay?

For reasons I’m not free to divulge, that’s how fast blogging is going right now in 2010. I’m actually working away it until I’m all but cross-eyed, but the current post is already days in the making, and I’m still at least a day or three away from any blankety-blanking end product.

Apologies, and thanks for your patience,
