~ MOST PEOPLE IN THE PEWS, assuming the best, think seminaries and theology schools are holy centres for imparting piety, learning, wisdom, and Christ-like zeal to new clergy.

“Surely,” they suppose, “such places are little outposts of God’s Kingdom on earth, training up our ministers and priests into fine examples of preachers, teachers, pastors, and human beings.” You know, just like universities in 2017 are centres of learning, calm scholarship, and imparting the wisdom and skills of the ages to young and eager minds. Not unreasonable– but naive in 2017.

Because, The Asteroid.

The Truth-Shattering Kaboom

Asteroid-impact-on-Earth-012
Western church & society, 1930-1070s and onwards….

When the Awesome Utopian World Revolution was slow a-comin’ after the 1800s and the bloodthirsty Soviet revolt, Communists and Socialists decided to go after All The Things. Schools, and universities; governments; culture and media; business and Charitable Foundations; and especially all the churches. Afterwards, the outside would still appear the same– think all those hallowed & Ivy-clad towers of academe– but the inside would be radicalized beyond all recognition. The key was and is to keep the ordinary suckers mostly clueless, and still attending & paying for it all.

This group of fellow travellers were the Frankfurt School, and they taught the ideas and techniques for subversion. Imagine something which looks & sounds exactly like your dear Auntie Mabel, but she’s actually a pod person replacement.

Unfortunately, a carcass skin suit doesn’t cover the stench of death.

For the churches, the same process that we see bearing fruit now in North American and European centres of higher learning– ignorance, violence, propaganda, safe-spaces, and a lock step progressive/ soft-Communist ideology which brooks no opposition, especially in the extremist professoriate. This same mutation has been ongoing since the early years of the last century. Those boys who died on the beaches of Normandy? Behind them, at home, the rot had begun to quietly settle into the very institutions and society they were fighting for Over There. A bittersweet thought.

Naming Names & Details

michaelrose
A Very Bad Man, Catholic author & tattle-taler Michael Rose. Boo!

In his heart-breaking book Goodbye, Good Men: How Liberals Brought Corruption into the Catholic Church, Michael Rose details the 1990s American fruit of this process– how Catholic seminarians were and are bullied, brow-beaten, threatened, and charmed or coerced into hoop-jumping and ideological mutation– even homosexuality and heresy. If you are at all “rigid” (believe the faith), or “sexually immature™” (same-sexuality, its militancy, and that many of your fellow students and some professors were barely in the closet), you’d be black-balled– not only from that school or diocese, but almost all of them.

Young vulnerable students have left such places of mis-education utterly broken, or having lost their faith, or become radicals; older experienced students come away aghast, stressed, and boggle-minded at the horrid politics and brutal abuse of the faith and lives of people offering themselves to the Church as potential clergy or priests. Faithful souls are being sacrificed on the altar of political correctness at such places year in and out.

A Lovely Outpost Of Hell

pishposh

“Pish-posh!” you scoff, “Pish and posh! How bad can it be, really? Surely we must put our trust in such reputable and accredited places to help the church provide decent future leaders for itself.” Pish-posh?.. except, I’ve been there.

The Atlantic School of Theology sits on some muy pricey real estate waterside in Halifax’s wealthy South End. Ironically, some of the Leftist professors in my day lived in small mansions, and many students lived on campus, or in nearby apartments. Looks very spiffy & hallowed, eh? Local Anglicans, United, Catholics, and even Unitarians, go there.

True Story– I Was There

When I attended in 1987-88, one of my professors was a pro-wicca (sorry, “wymyns spirituality’) lesbian, who seemingly predated on some of her female students every year. Another was apparently an all-but-avowed Communist. Still another was openly homosexual (although the best educated and freshest prof there by far).

Another faculty member was a glorified BA, who most assumed was a Ph.D. The liturgy expert (always beware those) was a bitterish radicalized nun, who loved everything about Vatican II, nothing before, and made it clear that the slightest dissent (from The Dissent) was not welcome. Yet another wonky Roman Catholic teacher told us during the Intro To Theology 101 class that the most important thing in reading in St. Augustine, was what we thought the saint meant. Uh?

tumblr_inline_nut44nm4gn1tcltlw_500

Other faculty taught as unquestionable Gospel only the most radical of theories about the Bible, morality, social justice (Marxism), theology, and the like. Our textbooks were mostly in the same line– a critique of classical Christianity, without ever actually teaching what the content or practice and worship of that faith properly was…. Er, oops.

Such A Friendly Place

watching

There was a remarkable amount of smiling and superficial bonhomie, hugs, and slightly creepy touching. Yet at every point, you were always under ‘pastoral’ surveillance for any ‘disaffirming’ (non-radical) opinions on theology, God, abortion, divorce, homosexual marriage, feminism, homosexuality, women clergy, the creeds, and political & social issues of the day. Warms the old cockles.

fakerypeople
Smile. Or else.

In fact, if you weren’t sporting a rictus (or smirking) and faux cheery-looking and accepting of everything & everyone at all times, that was suspect, too. Malcontent? Critical? Unpastoral? Grim? Judgmental? Not gruntled, or not with The ‘rich & challenging’ Program?!?

Not only the professors and ‘academic supervisors’ were on the snoop, but your fellow students were also watching for non-non-conformity, or ‘nurturing community’. Snitching (or “sharing pastoral concerns about X” with the leadership), I suspect, was encouraged.

Step out of line, be non-affirming, rigid, sexually immature, judgmental, narrow-minded, or dare question a prof? BAM. You risked a low grade, a black mark in your permanent record, being shunned by your fellow students and the faculty, and a non-recommendation for ordination. A nice little ‘Christian’ Gulag Archipelago nestled right there on Halifax’s Northwest Arm.

parrotical

Nurturing. Pastoral. Caring & sharing. Awwk. Even some of the more progressive students found the place rather a joke, and more than a little oppressive. TO be fair, not all of them were “true believers’ like most of the faculty was then.

Like Sheeps, No Shepherds

Lost and Confused Signpost
Modernist theology schools.. where you can lose your faith, and your soul.  All according to the plan.

Sadly, many of my classmates were ‘second career’ mature candidates, with little or no university background, or relevant studies. Some were nice people, but barely able to write a term paper. Others were like innocent sheep before the sophistical and practiced academic brow-beating of their wolfish profs– academics who could and did at any moment crush hopes & futures with a bad review, or a word to your bishop or sponsoring group, or sneering and mocking of your ‘naive & pietistic’ faith in class.

Behold the ‘tolerant, affirming, open & flexible’ Revolution. It’s mind-warping and soul-crushing– and designed to be that way, precisely so you will imbibe and parrot the revolution and not The Christian Faith, then spread the infection to others. Or else.

Problem was, I came fresh to the place with a hot double BA in history and Philosophy/ Religious studies. 4.1 GPA. I’d been pushed for Ph.D work, but wanted to do parish work first, then a doctorate. “Narrow-minded and conservative, but warm and cuddly” was my motto for AST.

What Fresh Hell?…

161919-200x200-praise-dance-clip-art-5The daily worship at that school was predictably freakish– almost weekly the furniture was moved about, and we might get an angry feminist liturgy one day (with confession prayers only for the males present); or else rainbow stoles & vestments; a pro-Sandinista/ Liberation Theology homily the next; some women galumphing  liturgical dance in polyester and chiffon the week after, and then maybe Gaia-Mother Earth and native prayers scheduled for next time.

All this with a progressive/ Marxist post-Christian slant, all done very self-consciously and badly, even if robed or clothed in old-sounding forms. Missing out, or non-enthusiasm (eek!), or non-participation (GASP!) was duly noted.

Of course, nibbles plus the ideologically correct coffee from then-Communist Sandinista Nicaragua for afters. No joke.

Joiiin Usssss.

Who Will Protect Us?

For my own class of first-years, I ended up as unofficial spokesman, despite my odd-man out status. When I announced I was leaving that school for another, several of the feminists– much to my shock– were openly upset (this, in the class poorly co-taught by The Feminist & The Communist.. one day, we even did colouring with crayons). As we discussed my leaving, a young woman classmate broke into tears, and actually said to me “But who will protect us from the professors, and ask all the right questions?”

PROTECT. They knew. What a sad commentary, that. I almost stayed. However, after those same profs tried (and failed) to give me a rotten mark, I knew the fix would be in if I remained there.

Spiritual Mass Murder

spiritual death

Why is the church shrinking, and why are so many clergy so weird? How did we get here?

This spiritual holocaust of the future leadership of the Church has been going on now since I was born… that’s two or two-and-a-half generations of mistreatment, mutation, abuse, radicalization, mis-education of the very people who are supposed to set forth the Gospel to the Church and world, lead on moral, social and theological questions, and save souls unto heaven. Instead, we have hard-progressive or squishy or compromised and shallow clergy, many of whom may mean well, but who don’t have the education or spiritual resources people think they do, and that they should have.

The Canadian & U.S. (and U.K.– Google ‘Maynooth Scandal’) Roman Church clergy formation system has it very bad, but most of the protestant schools are close behind them. It is a horror story, a tale of abuse of trust, fraud, authority, rank heresy, and cruelty.. and a cynical exploitation of the innocent students and financial supporters of such places.

But Wait, There’s Moar!

So what? Here’s what.

(1) Don’t EVER assume your clergy have had a proper education, spiritual formation, or that their cleverness in the pulpit is worth listening to. Test the spirits. Seek out the good ones, and help, pray for, and support them.

(2) If you or someone you know or care for are thinking about going into the clergy, warn him to do lots of deep research, interviews, and fact-checking about the places they are considering. Some are outposts of heaven, most are sinks of hell, or wastes of time.

(3) The “clergy selection processes” in many parts of the church are geared against non-radicals, and are as impartial and fair-minded and godly as an ecclesiastical Gestapo. The gatekeepers are meant to weed out the “difficult”, and pass through the malleable, the naive, the well-meaning, the clueless, or the people who can conceal their real selves and just go through the motions.

(4) If you or any wealthy person you know thinks piling money, bequests, and donations into such corrupted places of clergy malformation is a great and pious work, think again. Starve these progressive outposts of post-Christianity of cash, and do your research properly. Don’t unwittingly aid and abet these outposts of darkness because the people seem nice, and it’s a fancy old building, and the profs talk all holy on founder’s day.

(5) If you’re stuck at such a place, keep your head down, keep in touch with allies outside the place who can vouch & fight for you when the hammer comes down, and do your own course of studies in all the major areas, with the best authors, so you’ve actually learned something in your time. Be friendly and happy.. the predatorial system has broken better far people than you, and spit them out like ground-up bones. Pray, pray, pray without ceasing, for yourself, your fellow students, and your professors. Prayers of light exorcism may also help. You will be scarred, hurt, and mistreated.

ITYS.

Finally, In Conclusions

This abuse-scandal has been largely hidden for 50 years and more, and books like that of Michael Rose– though dated now– lift the rug on the creepy-crawlies, filth and dirty secrets of the radicalized Church, which has captured many ecclesiastical institutions, yet pretended to be the same as before.

And no, DON’T go to the Atlantic School of Theology in Halifax, Nova Scotia, for any reason whatsoever. Don’t give to it, or support it. Very pretty landscape, though. ~

Now What, Binks?

Amongst the various offerings from YouTube Channel Studio Brulé, we have the interesting and wisely professorial offerings of Professor Janice Fiamengo of the University Of Ottawa. How she ever survived modern academia, I’ll never know.

That is, she’s not a cringing conservative, a rabid bullying Marxist of whatever stripe, or a dead-souled survivor of one-too-many meetings of Time Waster’s International™, University Division. Imagine!

In fact, Professor Fiamengo appears to be an actual professing old-style liberal. Old School Liberal– Believes 1st year kids have skulls full of mush, which must be shaped and formed. Believes in facts, truth, hard work, and the free exercise of the mind and will on learning & mastering a topic. Education, knowledge, wisdom, and degrees are hard-won over years, not handed out like prizes for everyone– and only in real areas of knowledge.

Worthwhile Professing Persons

Someone like Professor Fiamengo represents (like other kick-butt Canucki profs such as Doug Farrow & Dr. Margo Somerville, amongst others) some of the best kind of Canadian scholarship: detailed, insightful, impartial, quietly passionate, and worth hearing and pondering. They are– to the best of my knowledge– unbought, unradical, uncorrected, and serve as educated minds and consciences speaking back from our Western Tradition to the various concerns and controversies of the day.

You know, out loud. In public and stuff. Common sense, even.

Unlike radicalized profs, or the ‘false consensus’ global weather academics, with the best professors & teachers, you don’t feel like you’re listening to the same old script, or hearing only one side of an issue (usually Leftwards), or that a whole dimensions of learning are being deliberately silenced or misrepresented for political or ideological excuses.  You know, college as usual: Brainwashing, only $20K+ a year, thank-you Cha-Chinnng!

DISCOUNT COMMUNISM– otherwise known as ‘social justice’– is a raging infection in the Western body academic and body politic. It’s been around since the 1930s, but has broken out afresh on the campuses of 2016, after the previous fevers of the 80s and 90s.

Let’s be clear: “social justice” is sneaky communist talk for a communist revolution in thought , society, and politics. Period.

Social justice is not about ‘seeking justice in society’, but about utopian violence, barbarism, fanaticism, irrationality, cult-like behaviours, and “being outraged” on behalf of victims of real or imagined injustice. In short, “Western society is imperfect, therefore it must be wrecked and replaced (and no, we’re not kidding), and don’t remind us of the 20th century record of Communism, thanks very much!

The shelving of post-secondary education as academic learning and mastering various topics? Bah! Instead, we must be cheerleader advocates and activists of said topic! Disasterous for students, the universities, the job market, for having a well-educated populace, for racial and political peace– well, pretty much for everything. Don’t just study the history of Nazism, become a Nazi.. er.. Communist revolutionary!

Enprovening It

Sargon of Akkad’s recent video on “What Is A Social Justice Course?” goes into the sort of thing happening in many North American and some European universities. Sargon even has a cheeky Change.Org petition up, “Petitioning UNIVERSITIES: Suspend Social Justice Courses“. I’ve also had several recent blog-posts up about the current state of whackademia.

SO– screams of censorship, raisinism, sectism, homophonia, no-platforming, fake hate-crimes, social media lynching gangs.. rage.. threaten.. throw.. mob.. bite.. scream. Yeah, SJWs, you’ve made your kind of politics plenty clear in recent psycho-rages against non-SJW talkers on various campuses. You’ve not actually proven any points, but you’ve demonstrated the kind and quality of people you are: middle & upper middle-class fascists.

If the alternative online media had just reported dry facts, lotsa shrugs and “Who says?” would have resulted– but actual video of the people, the tactics, the brain-insane results of SJW-style courses and activist professors? Priceless!

Take this admirable young scholar of the class of 2018ish, for example, from a recent talk at an American university. Mz. Cora Segal is the future.

“GNOTHI SEAUTON!” (Greek: γνῶθι σεαυτόν), said the ancient Greeks (we’re not sure which one, exactly)– Know Thyself! To this general idea, Socrates added: “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

That is, true wisdom (true authenticity with self, and others, and ultimately, God & reality), requires time, maturity, and effort– and a mirror. Some introspection. Some self-knowledge of strengths and weaknesses, fixable and unfixable, light & shadows, good and evil– OF YOURSELF. FIRST. With humility, and good humour.

Believe it or not, things like that Greek saying used to be taught on undiversity campuses. The Western way of knowing, of deliberation, moral action, of self-criticism and criticism of a society, of beauty, truth, goodness and right behaviour. Not so much in some sectors of the 21st Century modern college, though.

A Word To The Grown-Ups

dv1850045
Choose very carefully.. or you get a graduated job-free lunatic.

Parents, before you send your kid to college, find out what college will give you in return on your investment of life in the kid, and your investment of time and money for a college. You want a smart, educated, work-ready, well-read life-long learner and adult, not a lazy stoned propaganda-spewing basement commie being bitter on social media for the next 10 years.

Parents and prospective students– Does your proposed place of study have an active Women’s Centre? Safe spaces? Gender Studies Program? Black Lives Matters? Lots of radical campus groups? RED ALERT! No world-class or national-class scholars (or scholar-authors), or well-spoken of programs in real studies areas? RED ALERT! Learn the warning signs of SJW-brain-cancer growth places, and avoid them, as you would steer clear of live cancer soup, or a Nazi-decorated university setting.

Of course, if you’re a revolting schemer trying to break & steal all the things, and hurt people, why then it’s most helpful to not actually mean what you say, and to never say (out loud to your enemy) exactly what you really mean. It’s all part of the intellectual camouflage, you see; the ‘revolutionary subterfuge’ (useful lying).

Because: Institutional Societal Sexisms! And oopsies.

People who agree with Political Correctness tend to dislike facts versus feelings and general impressions; and Correctoids don’t want to call things what they are in plain communicative language, to conceal who or what we are talking about.

From gender pronouns, to men and women to people who live here, and people who came here unlawfully, it’s thought-control to influence what and how people think, politically. It also helps if you don’t talk about real people, or yourself, but in broad anonymous classes, or society-wide forms of ‘oppression’, or discrimination’, or ‘privilege’.

image-20150830-17768-1bv9qr1

Ultimately, Political Correctness is literally seeking to erase certain words & thoughts, or to so change their meanings that the old thoughts and categories are impossible. So a feminist will not talk about Bob, but accuse all men ever everywhere of sexism, racism, rapism, and general monsterness via ‘toxic masculinity’. Such folks won’t address real statistics, or that ‘Sue got raped’ as much as ‘we have a rape culture’; they won’t say ‘this study argues that…’ but ‘Everybody knows…’.

These vague and anonymous generalities and sweeping accusations are most awesome of all! The morally superior have found out all the bad things, such as YOU, dirty privileged  sexist scum man!

An Eye-Roll, Please.

When the special snowflake SJW crazies are yelling in your face about all the ways you are evil and sexist, it’s a good response to say (after rolling your eyes) “Piss off. No I’m not. In fact, you are the sexist bullies, and here’s why…”

Standing fast catches the screamers off guard because they’re used to apologies, apoplexy, flusterment, or agreement, not calm and factual answers. Best of all, the fragile SJWs and  ‘safe-spaces’ campus radicals aren’t really as certain and strong as they like to appear. Paper-thin slogans and the even thinner thinking behind them do not a castle make.

The worst part of all this? Feminism turns most ordinary well-meaning women into nasty parrots, who mindlessly repeat doubtful studies, simplistic statistics, and lying slogans about.. well, everything: slut-shaming, wage gaps, rape culture, patriarchy, ‘Listen & Believe’, and more generally repeating the ridiculous and tired ideas uttered by rich white feminists, sometimes from 50 years ago and more.

dontry.JPG

There are four parts to detonating this claim.

(1) Equal Pay is NOT the same as Lifetime Earnings.

A woman not earning the same total amount over her whole working life may well be paid the same as a man in an equivalent position– but most women work fewer hours, take weekends, holidays, sick days, and family days off. Not to mention maternity leave, ‘Flex-Time’, and sick kid days. Women’s career-tracks & lifetime hours worked are not identical to their male peers in the same positions.

(2) Shockingly, not all jobs PAY the same.

Further, men and women tend to choose different careers, many of which have less pay. Men often choose higher-paying jobs, push for promotions, raises, and are more ambitious– even if they don’t actually like the career. Not every job is the same, nor do all jobs require the same amount of education, effort, expertise, and specialization.

(3) Most people in the same job are USUALLY paid equally.

Looking past the propaganda, in 2016 some women in starting positions will make more than their starting out male counterparts. Paying women 70% as men for identical work is illegal, and– if it were legal– would mean men couldn’t get many jobs, with women as a discount work-force.

But the biggest factor, all other things (and pay) being equal?

(4) Men actually tend to WORK LONGER hours.

One Australian work-study found men worked on average 8.5 hours more than women, per week.* Just a couple of hours a day, and the odd Saturday. Other studies pegged the weekly overtime at about 5.5 hours for men.

Hold onto your hats.. this ‘work longer’ thing is like the exploding value of compound interest. And remember– Binks has Math Dyslexia (on top of a little of the usual kind), so the following is trebly impressive.

By The Numbers

8.5 overtime hours a week. That’s a whopping 10.5 weeks, or 442+ hours of male overtime work per year (or 55.2 x 8 hour overtime workdays/ year).

Such overtime over 10 years? 4420+ hours over a decade (552 x 8 hour overtime workdays/ decade). That’s a crap-ton of overtime– an extra year and a half overtime over a decade (presuming 364 day work-years).

Over a career? The average man will work 17680+ overtime hours, or a full 2210 overtime workdays over 40 years (that’s 6.07 full YEARS— with no weekends or vaycays– of overtime @ 8 hours a day).

The overtime is on top of the 40 hours weekly for 40 years, whatever that is.. lessee.. 2080 regular work-hours/ year, 20800 hours per decade, and 83200 working hours in 40 years.. + the 17680+ overtime = the average man works 100880 total hours (regular + overtime) in a career, versus women working 83200 total hours in a career). Ruh-roh!….

Cheer Up, It Gets Worse!

All of this does not include the hours of unpaid overtime that many modern employers are squeezing out of some employees; nor the hideous job-markets and increase in shrunken work hours ‘part-time’ positions with no benefits, pension, or time off. Oh yes, it’s a paradise out there.

Could be much worse.. as one person has commented:

“Look at Japan and the “salaryman” attitude. At work 7 days a week for well over 12hrs a day, usually back around midnight, maybe half of Sunday to see your kids, 2 weeks holiday a year but if you ever took them you would be fired.”

Japanese Salarymen working over 84 hours a week? Male privilege!

Obviously, even more signs of women being oppressed! Patriarchy!

Free & Simple Answers

What is to be done? The present situation cannot continue! Justice! Equalism!

When it comes to winning equal earnings for men and women, no matter what choices or factors or circumstances, the answers are clear. We must obey the feminist logic that men and women must earn exactly the same in their lifetimes of working (presuming we don’t pay the same wages for a paperboy as a brain surgeon).

ProLucro_Menos-Stress-300x284

First of all, in the name of true equality, all women must be forced to work as many regular and overtime hours as men do, and in identical kinds of jobs. No more family time or maternity-leave with that 8.5 hours of overtime a week on top of the usual 40: whiny sick kids must look after themselves.

Nextly, all women will be required by law to take years and years of extra education & special training for more high pressure & higher paying jobs (plus, be forced to take up more dangerous and physically risky careers, to help equally bear the burden of the 90%+ of workplace fatalities happening to men). There’s simply no choice in the matter, I’m afraid.

Thanks, Here’s Your Grave

All must be sacrificed unto mammon, so true earnings-equality can be attained! Men and women must work the same way in the same fields for the same amount of time and thus earn the same! Minor things like choice, ability, gender, personal interests, or individuality? Not so much. The post-industrial mega-state thanks you for your slavery!

Nope, not making this up. See links below for proof. Via.

As you can see, I’m really quite the feminist. So glad to help. ~

* In case someone thinks this is exaggeration, I’m actually low-balling the overtime hours a little. It’s more like +10 hrs/ week in some cases. Even if we went with 5hrs/ week, the overtime amount is still yuge, as the math proves.

So saith,

Teh Binks
