THE MATTHEW 17:20 INITIATIVE : Tuesday and Friday Full Fasts For Full Resolution of the Bergoglio Situation

Let us call this the MATTHEW 17:20 INITIATIVE.

I’ll go ahead and get the ball rolling, and anyone else who wants to join in and spread the word about the MATTHEW 17:20 INITIATIVE , please do.  Tuesdays and Fridays are the days in which The Church prays the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary, contemplating Our Blessed Lord’s Agony, Scourging, Crowning with Thorns, Carrying of The Cross and Crucifixion and Death.  It seems appropriate that these two days could be set aside for full fasting, that is NO FOOD WHATSOEVER, and only water and/or zero calorie drinks (this allows coffee and tea).

The intention of the MATTHEW 17:20 INITIATIVE is for a full resolution to the Bergoglio situation.  I phrase it like that, and not simply as “Bergoglio’s removal” because I realize that there are still many of you out there who are not morally certain, as I am, that Bergoglio is an Antipope.  If I am right and Pope Benedict XVI is, in fact, still the one and only living pope, then the “removal of Bergoglio” could yield yet another Antipope.

At this point, many would say, “Well, Ann, how could it POSSIBLY get any worse?”

Very, very easily.  Try on for size another Antipope with Bergoglio’s Satanic-Freemasonic-Sodomitical agenda, except… TWENTY YEARS YOUNGER.

So, the MATTHEW 17:20 INITIATIVE is for the full resolution of the Bergoglio situation.

But this kind is not cast out but by prayer and fasting.

 Hoc autem genus non ejicitur nisi per orationem et jejunium.

-Matthew 17:20

 

Starting Monday Off Right: The Enemy Is Like a Woman Edition

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

“The enemy is like a woman, weak in face of opposition, but correspondingly strong when not opposed. In a quarrel with a man, it is natural for a woman to lose heart and run away when he faces up to her; on the other hand, if the man begins to be afraid and to give ground, her rage, vindictiveness and fury overflow and know no limit.”
St. Ignatius of Loyola

James Martin, S.J. is like a woman, weak in face of opposition, but correspondingly strong when not opposed.

Thomas Rosica is like a woman, weak in face of opposition, but correspondingly strong when not opposed.

Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia is like a woman, weak in face of opposition, but correspondingly strong when not opposed.

Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio is like a woman, weak in face of opposition, but correspondingly strong when not opposed.

Cardinal Blase Cupich is like a woman, weak in face of opposition, but correspondingly strong when not opposed.

Antipope Jorge Mario Bergoglio is like a woman, weak in face of opposition, but correspondingly strong when not opposed.

Go Clean Up the Kitchen, You Stupid, Stupid Woman (reprint on the Feast of St. Martha)

(I was reminded at Mass today on this the feast of St. Martha of domestic happiness, and this piece which I wrote for The Remnant Newspaper a while back.  It was wildly popular when it was first published, with only a handful of women griping about it.  Most women loved it, and for many it brought back happy memories of their own mothers and/or grandmothers, busily and lovingly taking care of the business of the household.  We know St. Martha must have been a stupendous hostess, as today’s Gospel specifically states that Our Lord availed Himself of her (and her siblings’) hospitality FREQUENTLY.  It also reminded me that I should watch one of my favorite movies tonight – “Marty”.)

I have had this piece in the back of my mind for some time, and have even run the title and general gist of it past a few people, all of whose eyes sparkled like the transporter beam of the Enterprise-A upon hearing it.

Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away, I lived in a large, shared house built in the 1920s with a male friend.  I had the master bedroom suite, and thus my own private bathroom, and everything was completely on the up-and-up.  Fear not, gentle readers.  I shall not be scandalizing you with tales of ribaldry – no “accompanying body-to-body” going on, to use one of FrancisChurch’s creepier turns of phrase.  It was an excellent use of the property, and very frugal and affordable.  And, yes, I certainly preferred to live with males, from both the security as well as a domestic tranquility standpoint.

In this particular case, I did, in fact, greatly admire and count as a treasured friend the male housemate, and no matter what great adventure I had been on in those heady days of my youth, when my learning curve was near-vertical, and every day seemed an adventure, it was always a pleasure to simply go home.

I have always been a bit of a “foodie”, and would often eat out, arriving home after the “rush hour” in the relatively large and well-equipped house kitchen was over for the evening.  In fact, four out of five dentists surveyed would have guessed that my shelf in the refrigerator, packed with condiments, pickles, recycled glass jars of bacon drippings, and as many bottles of Corona Extra as would fit in the remaining void, was the “man shelf”. And they would have been wrong.  But I digress.

My evening ritual before turning in for the night was, in order, to go into the kitchen, wash and dry any and all dishes and cookware used that day, including the coffee pot, lift the grates off of the gas stovetop and thoroughly clean and polish the stainless steel stovetop, clean the countertops, kitchen table, and stainless steel double basin sink, and finally replace the stove grates and then set upon the perfectly clean stove the small saucepan for my friend to heat his milk for the next morning’s coffee.

Bear in mind, rarely were any of the dishes dirtied by me, as I ate out more often than not.  Further, I was almost never the first in the kitchen in the morning, and was not a ritual morning coffee drinker.  I cleaned the kitchen and set out the next morning’s accouterment not for myself, but for my friend and housemate.  I wanted him to start his day off not with a dirty kitchen, dishes stacked in the sink, and a grease-covered stove, the thought in the back of his mind, “Oh, I’m going to have to clean this kitchen after I get home from work today….”

No. I wanted to give him the smallest of gifts – a little help around the house. And God forgive me, that twenty minutes of quiet, nightly kitchen clean-up, in particular the polishing of the stove and setting out of the saucepan, was the best part of my day. If I were dishonest I would say that something liturgical or some formal prayer was the best part of my day, but it wasn’t.  The silent, spontaneous prayer of thanksgiving that flowed out of my soul as I recalled that day’s events, and how happy I was to be where I was, surrounded by friends, recalling past adventures and making plans for future adventures, and praying for my friend and housemate and his intentions, as I scrubbed grease splatter off of the stove with Ajax grease cutting spray and paper towels – that was the best part of my day.

To this day, if asked to pinpoint my zenith of personal happiness, it has nothing to do with my personal accomplishments in business – my first cattle marketing school, the opening of my brokerage firm, or even my first six-figure month. Nor does it have to do with my reception into the Church, which was more a feeling of relief than anything else.  If you ask me when I felt happy – truly, truly happy – it was when I was cleaning up for a man.  So roll that up real tight in your Virginia Slim cigarette and smoke it, Betty Friedan. It’s almost as if there is some sort of hard-wiring given to us by God – factory-loaded software if you will – nudging us toward our gender-specific vocations that will make us truly happy.

One evening as I was doing the evening tidy-up, my friend and housemate, having eaten his dinner in his room, brought his dishes into the kitchen after I had started cleaning up.  I happily reached out to take his dishes to wash, as I was already standing at the sink washing dishes.  He said, “No, I’ll do it.” And I happily replied, “No, I’m happy to do it.”  Which, as we just covered above, was the understatement of the evening.  At this, he angrily handed me the dishes, growled contemptuously, “You’re SO annoying,” and walked out.

Being human, I was certainly wounded at the revelation that the best part of my day, this small yet concrete act of charity, was a source of annoyance for my friend.  But, I also remembered a book I had read about the life of St. Joseph by the mystic Maria Cecilia Baij.

Baij claimed that the events of the life of St. Joseph were told to her by Our Lord Himself, and I found the book to be most informative and credible.  In it, the Blessed Virgin is described as a meticulous housekeeper, not out of the slightest hint of personal pride, obviously, but out of pure love for Our Lord and St. Joseph.  

Further, I was struck by the realization that Our Lord, who could have miraculously “cleaned” the house for His mother, or summoned angels to do it, let her do it.  Why? Because He wanted her to be happy, and we can only be truly happy when what we do is motivated by love, and what we are doing is proper to our state in life.  She loved St. Joseph because he was one of the finest and most admirable men who has ever lived, and he was her most chaste husband, and she was his wife ever virgin, and she loved Our Lord because He is God, and also her Son.  She who was full of grace, and thus capable of such tremendous love, was, in keeping with her state in life of woman, wife and mother, made truly happy in taking care of and cleaning up after her “Boys”.

After thinking on this, I resolved that I would not stop doing my evening clean-up, and I did until the very end.  I still remember the last night in that house, crying and crying as I polished the stove and set out the saucepan one last time.

Flash forward to today, wherein one of the main focuses of my writing and lecturing is Diabolical Narcissism.  Diabolical Narcissism is the psycho-spiritual driver behind most of the cultural pathologies we see around us today.  Diabolical Narcissism is broadly defined as when a human being, like the fallen angels, freely chooses to purge themselves of all charity, leaving them incapable of love or empathy, and capable of only the demonic emotional palate of anger, hatred, jealousy and fear.  These people are incredibly dangerous to souls as they, like the demons, literally hunt other human beings, attempting to murder not their bodies, but their souls, out of pure spite.

One of the points of nexus I made early on in researching Diabolical Narcissism was that the subset of Marxism commonly called “feminism” is nothing less than the explicit attempt to turn women en masse into Diabolical Narcissists – whereas women have historically comprised less than 20% of the total of Diabolical Narcissists in western populations.  Feminism demands that a woman be totally selfish, and beyond that hate men qua men, hate marriage, and even hate their own children to the point of demanding the state-protected, state-financed ability to premeditatedly murder them.

But where it all began was with the notion that any sort of work performed by a woman around the house was drudgery, a waste of time, an act of patriarchal oppression, even legalized slavery.  Many women today in the post-Christian west are shockingly bad housekeepers, and not just because they are working outside the home.  Many stay-at-home wives and mothers are content to live in squalor, even proud of the fact that they are “sticking it to the man”, boasting of their refusal to clean or inability to cook.

Are we surprised?  As true charity is purged from every corner of our culture, replaced with a self-worshiping narcissistic humanism, is it any wonder that today’s women are simply incapable of understanding how it could possibly be that cleaning the kitchen, doing the laundry, or even that most primordial of caring acts, FEEDING another human being, could possibly make them happy, much less fulfill them as women on this mortal coil?

One of my favorite movies is 1954’s “Marty” starring Ernest Borgnine.  A side plot in the film revolves around two widowed sisters, immigrants from Italy, living in the Bronx.  One widowed sister has just moved in with her son, his new wife and their infant child.  The mother is angry and frustrated with her daughter-in-law because the mother can no longer be the sole housekeeper.  While her behavior toward her daughter-in-law is selfish and wrong, she gives a moving speech to her sister, also a widow but still living in her large family home and taking care of her remaining bachelor son, Marty, about the horror of growing old and not having anyone to take care of, not having anything to do.

To today’s women and girls, this sentiment is incomprehensible.  How could a woman complain, much less fall into a depression, because she doesn’t have to clean up after anyone, doesn’t have to do anyone’s laundry, doesn’t have to cook?  In other words, how can a woman not be overjoyed at having no one to love?

Goodness me, how I do hate feminism with a perfect hatred.

The lesson in all of this is to learn to be animated in our work by the love of God, because then all of our tasks and chores that we perform for others which the world considers menial drudgery at best and horrifically unpleasant at worst, including for perfect strangers, will yield that same happiness that comes from doing something for someone we love personally, be it a spouse, child, family member or friend.  This is called, “sanctity”, and is what drove the centuries of religious who took care of the sick and dying, the destitute poor, and orphans.  They saw Christ in every face.  Even those chores that those of us who are single and live alone do for ourselves can be done for the love of God.  And yes, to this day when I clean my own stove I still pray.  But what I wouldn’t give for just one more night to clean up for my friend, because looking back at my life, that was the closest I ever came to being a normal woman, which is why I was, in retrospect, so happy.

And so, when I hear a woman, especially a woman with a family, complaining about housework using the standard diabolical narcissist feminist boilerplate that we can all recite, all I can think is, “Go clean up the kitchen, you stupid, stupid woman.”

 

Barnhardt Podcast #015: My Fault, My Fault, My Most Grievous Fault



[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss a listener email about the Sacrament of Confession “being too easy” the way we described it in Episode 13, so we dive into the what it means to be sorry for one’s sins in an authentic sense. We also talk about shame: how the loss of it in the moral sense is devastating not just to individuals but society at large.

12:16 Antipope Bergoglio is functionally Lutheran
13:03 Shame is a gift and grace from God, and is the Fruit of the First Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary – Christ’s agony in the Garden. We should all desire an increase in shame for our sins, both present and past.

24:55 The Satanic nature of “FrancisNewMercy”: your sins aren’t sins, they don’t matter, God wants you to sin, following the Law is too difficult, so don’t bother. Antipope Bergoglio casts himself and “his new mercy” as greater than Christ’s mercy, which is rigid and might lead to personal sacrifice

43:10 Anarchy is bad – healthy self-policing is good.
44:08 WILDLY POLITICALLY INCORRECT CONTENT ALERT! Sodomy is exploding partly because boys who act like sissies are no longer “recalibrated” by their peers – rather they are celebrated and lauded as “heroes”. Boys acting faggy, i.e. like girls, should be shamed and punished corporeally if necessary.

Barnhardt Podcast #014: Interest Rate Manipulation: The Stealth Weapon of Mass Destruction



[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this inaugural Barnhardt Financial Podcast, we address two main topics. First, we discuss the wisdom of the 7 year mortgage as a maximum loan term on a home, and walk through examples and consequences of the responsible use of debt. Next, we delve into the use of interest rates as literal weapons of mass destruction, the silent and extremely coercive “nuclear weapon” being held over every economy by the Deep State via central banks. Specifically, we look at the current threat of economic Armageddon being held over Italy as it is being coerced via threats of interest rate manipulation into importing and quartering the very islamic invasion force that was repelled at Lepanto in 1571 and Vienna in 1683.

This week’s Financial Math Example:

If you pay $100,000 for a bond position and its yield is 2%, it will pay $2000 per year in interest regardless of market price changes so long as you hold it and do not sell it.

If a bond issuer is likely to default (that is, risk increases), the yield goes up and the market price goes down. If yield goes up to 10%, what is the price such that 10% of that price is $2000?

P x 0.10 = $2000
P = $2000/0.10
P = $20,000

If yield goes from 2% to 10%, yield has increased by a factor of 5.
0.10 / 0.02 = 5

Therefore, market price must DECREASE by same factor:

$100,000 / 5 = $20,000

Barnhardt Podcast #013: Fatherhood in Crisis



[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss the crisis resulting from a lack of fatherhood and how it can be observed in the Church and in Japan. In the Church: the anti-Papacy of Jorge Bergoglio is dividing and scattering the sheep as perennial Truths are being diminished, ignored, and even contradicted. In Japan: the crisis of narcissism manifested through immature males who only think of themselves is threatening to bring about extinction through a lack of procreation.

Letter From an Absentee Father to His Children

Dear Children,

It has been over four years since I abandoned you and declared myself your “father emeritus”, but I wanted to write this letter to you in the hopes that it would console you.  As I said when I was walking out the door, I have not ceased to be your father, I have just chosen to only be your father in the passive, contemplative, inactive, absentee sense. After all, who is to say how many “fathers” a child can have?  What’s important is not who is or is not your father, but rather what fatherhood MEANS.  Fatherhood for me means withdrawing from the active duties of fatherhood while maintaining the spiritual aspect, and in doing this, stepping aside and making way for another man to become your “active father”.  In doing this, I have expanded fatherhood, thus permanently transforming fatherhood into a collegial, synodal paradigm. At least, that is what I tell myself.

I want you to know that I am fully aware that since I abandoned Your Mother and all of you, that a raging psychopath calling himself your “active father”  has moved into your house and is now raping and beating Your Mother before your eyes on a daily basis. I am also aware that he is beating you, emotionally abusing you, poisoning you, and is exposing you to his cabal of friends, almost all of whom are sodomites/boy rapists.

I want you to know that I am aware of this, and assure you of my closeness to you in prayer.  I hope this consoles you.

Further, I want you to know that things are going to get much, much worse.  Don’t ask me how I know this.  Let’s just say that when I was still your Active Father, I … was made privy to certain… secrets.

The psychopath and his sodomite/boy raping friends are going to rape and beat Your Mother so badly that it will literally require a supernatural miracle to save her life.  She will not die, but she will be raped and beaten unto death.  All of this will be done before your very eyes.  In fact, the psychopath and his sodomite gang will luxuriate in the fact that you, the children, will see this happen.

As for you, my dear, dear children, many of you will not survive this.  You will be beaten, berated, poisoned and some of you will also be raped.  For many of you, this abuse and terror will be so intense that you will abandon Your Mother and commit de facto suicide.  Others of you will turn into exactly the same kind of psychopathic monsters as your “active father” and his gang.  The only promise I can make to you is that at least ONE of you will survive.  It is possible that ALL BUT ONE of you, my children, will be lost.

But take heart!  I am aware of what is happening to you, and I am close to you in prayer.

Now, you may be wondering why it is that I don’t call the police, notify someone, or take any action against the psychopath that is raping and beating Your Mother, and trying as hard as he can to kill all of you.

This is rather difficult to explain, and even more difficult to write, but I will try to explain it simply.  You see, while I am completely responsible for abandoning you, I am also largely responsible for creating the psychopath that is now calling himself your “active father”, all of his sodomite/boy raping gang, and the entire matrix within which they subsist.

In order for me to help you, I would have to admit that not only did I make a terrible, terrible mistake – in fact, in Law it is called a “SUBSTANTIAL ERROR”, but I would also have to admit that my entire adult life, going back at least 55 years now, was built upon a completely erroneous and false worldview even down to the level of metaphysics.  While I would never do the things that the psychopath who calls himself your “active father” is doing to Your Mother or to any of you children, I did work very hard years ago to create the environment of which he and his gang are a direct product.  And then, four years ago, I ran away to be your “father emeritus” and left the door standing wide open, and the psychopath and his gang walked into Our Family Home, and began their program of systematic rape and murder.

Now, kids, I love you, but I’m sure you understand that I simply cannot admit to any of these mistakes, no matter how glaringly obvious they are, and no matter how badly all of you and Your Mother are hurt by them.  To say that my entire adult life and work has been not just merely erroneous, but has been, quite possibly, the most catastrophic thing ever to happen to Our Family is simply impossible.  No one could expect me to humiliate myself like that, and nothing is worth that kind of humiliation.  Nothing.  I’m sure you all understand the position I am in.  This is why I can’t say anything, much less call the police or alert any of your uncles.  Not that alerting your uncles would help – there are only a handful left that aren’t in the psychopath’s gang, and all of your good uncles are effeminate and no good in a fight anyway. Very much like me.

I hope that while Your Mother is being raped and beaten unto death, and you yourselves are picked-off one by one, that you will be consoled knowing that I have been saved any public humiliation, and, I repeat, that I am fully aware of what is happening to you, and that I am close to you in prayer.

My advice is, appease the psychopath that calls himself your “active father”, and maybe he will kill you last. That’s what I am going to do.

Pray for me, and be consoled by my awareness of what is happening to you and my closeness to you in prayer-

Your “Contemplative Father Emeritus” (at least that’s what I call myself)

Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger, the one and only living Pope, and by far the worst Pope in history.

 

Barnhardt Podcast #012: Antipope Bergoglio Calls For Abolition of All Sovereign Nations of Europe



[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss the economic scam that is “Obamacare” and how it necessarily leads to concentration of government spending and power — and that now Jorge Bergoglio is calling for a “United States of Europe” to supplant the sovereignty of independent nations (in contrast to Catholic social teaching which favors subsidiary and smaller political entities). We also talk about a recent news article involving Cardinal Mueller which further demonstrates a recurring theme: “they” — including “Call me Jorge” — simply don’t believe the Truths of the Catholic Faith.

Quote to ponder: “The Economy of Grace can be compared to the power grid, and we’re dealing with constant rolling brown-outs and black-outs these days.”

On Effeminacy 2: Lovers of Pleasures More Than of God. Now These Avoid.

Know also this, that, in the last days, shall come dangerous times. Men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, haughty, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked, Without affection, without peace, slanderers, incontinent, unmerciful, without kindness, Traitors, stubborn, puffed up, and lovers of pleasures more than of God: Having an appearance indeed of godliness, but denying the power thereof. Now these avoid.

2 Timothy 3: 1-5

In the first installment of this series, we isolated what effeminacy is NOT, namely femininity or faggotry. So, what is effeminacy? St. Thomas Aquinas uses the words “softness” and “delicacy” as his main descriptors. By “delicacy”, Thomas means a man who cannot endure any toil or anything that diminishes pleasure. In our contemporary parlance the word “wimp” might be a more illuminating choice. If we look at St. Thomas’ words in the Summa in Article 1 of Question 138 of the Second Part of the Second Part, we see that at the core of the vice of effeminacy is a pathological aversion to a lack of pleasure, that is to say, an aversion to anything even remotely unpleasant, most especially any sort of exertion (work) or voluntary suffering.

Check those last two words: voluntary suffering. Do you see why effeminacy is pretty much the existential antipode to Christianity? Do you see why the weapon satan has used in this the “Battle of the Pelennor Fields” against the Church has been an infiltration of effeminate men who have spent the last 50 years preaching a “new gospel” wherein the cardinal false virtue is EFFEMINACY? Effeminacy simply cannot be reconciled to Christianity. It is contrary to the very foundations and core of the Truth of Christ. To wit:

Matthew 16: 24-25 Then Jesus said to His disciples: If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For he that will save his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for My sake, shall find it.

Matthew 5: 5 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Matthew 5: 10-12 Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for My sake: Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven. For so they persecuted the prophets that were before you.

John 15: 18-20 If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated Me before you. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember My word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.

Matthew 24: 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall put you to death: and you shall be hated by all nations for My Name’ s sake.

2 Timothy 3: 12 And all that will live godly in Christ Jesus, shall suffer persecution.

Let me now put up a list of bullet points of how effeminacy manifests, and we will then go down the list in future installments discussing in depth each example and how they are manifesting in today’s post-Christian, Modernist world and in AntipopeBergoglioNewWorldOrderChurchOfMan.

Effeminacy manifests as, in no particular order:

  • A pathological refusal to deal with objective reality (intense normalcy bias, self-delusion)
  • Hatred of exertion
  • An intense aversion to helping others (because helping almost always involves exertion)
  • The refusal to voluntarily take on ANY hardship, discomfort, or… wait for it… SUFFERING
  • Lashing out at virile people as a defense mechanism
  • Need for human respect
  • Hypersensitivity, easily “triggered”, often in “pissy moods”
  • Intense judgmentalism and hyper-criticality
  • Inordinate attachment to money – tightfistedness, stinginess
  • Intense selfishness and self-absorption
  • Sense of entitlement, especially to other peoples’ money
  • Narcissism, both grandiose and vulnerable
  • Incessant bitching, criticizing and complaining while refusing to act or charitably instruct others
  • Shunning personal responsibility, most especially taking responsibility for the actions of others or for no-fault accidents
  • Perpetual victimhood, oftentimes due to premeditated self-sabotage
  • Reducing Christianity to the merely theoretical, confined exclusively to the domain of ideas, utterly divorced from concrete action
  • Liturgical fetishism, “empty eggshell” Catholicism

On Effeminacy 1: Defining the Term

Where. To. Begin.

(Heavy sigh, rubs face, pops knuckles….)

The definition. Always good to start with the definition.

~ Effeminacy is the vice of softness that is opposed to perseverance. ~

But let’s expand on that so that you can understand what exactly that means.

First two things that effeminacy is NOT:

Effeminacy is NOT femininity. In modern parlance, “effeminate” is often used to mean “feminine”. This is flatly incorrect. Femininity, the quality of being female, is a good thing. We know this from the great “Hubba-hubba!” of Adam when he first saw Eve in Genesis 2. Also, from Our Lady, who is the pinnacle of femininity.

But femininity is the exclusive asset and domain of females, and men who claim it and manifest it are deluded, mentally ill perverts. Like Bruce Jenner. Further, since effeminacy is a vice, it can be manifested by both men and women.

Oh yeah. Effeminacy in women is just as wrong as in men, the difference being that the sight of effeminacy in men is so much more disturbing that it tends to be magnified in our minds. It is more disturbing because it is more contrary to masculine nature. The best example in reverse that I can think of is drunkenness. Which is a more jarring sight: a man that is s___faced drunk, or a woman in that condition? Drunkenness in a woman is more jarring to see because it is more contrary to her feminine nature, but drunkenness is equally wrong in both men and women. Also the use of coarse language. (Cough cough, I resemble that remark.)

Effeminacy is also NOT a synonym for faggotry. If we were to draw a Venn Diagram of effeminate males in a given population compared to sodomitically-oriented males, which for brevity’s sake we will henceforth refer to as “fags”, in that population, first, the effeminate domain circle would be at least 50x larger than the fag circle, because in this post-Christian culture there are way, way, way more effeminate heterosexual (straight) men than dudes who lust after other dudes. (I know you don’t buy this right now, but stay with me.)

Second, we would see that the Fag circle would NOT exist entirely inside the Effeminacy circle. This is a very important point, especially in terms of history, tyrannical governments, wars and genocides. It ain’t no coinkydink that the biggest murdering, genociding, evil tyrant bastards in history have been enthusiasts for the butt___ks.

Y’all have read “The Pink Swastika” and know that the core founders of the Nazi Party, including Herr Hitler himself, were all raging sodomites, right? But here is the distinction: they were butch and not effeminate. In fact, the homosexuals that ended up being purged in the Night of the Long Knives or sent to concentration camps were the feminine, swishy, flaming fags. The Nazis were not “soft”, effeminate men and were thus extremely aggressive and effective at implementing their satanic agenda. The same could be said for the fags that have been running the islamic political system since day one. Likewise for the Samurai culture and Sparta. History hath shewn time and time again that the most dangerous fags to civilization on a macro level are the fags that present as masculine and are, in fact, NOT effeminate.

In the next installment, we will discuss what effeminacy is, how St. Thomas Aquinas defines it, what its opposite is, and we will begin to discuss how effeminacy manifests itself in our culture today, both in men and women.
