You Might Be Backing an Antipope If…

(A viewer of the Part 1 video, “The Bergoglian Antipapacy” emailed and asked if I would PLEASE make a dedicated post about the two slides at the 02:06:45 through 02:09:30 marks.  Here is the video – you will have to advance it to 02:06:45 -AND I have typed up the transcript.

I repost this as attacks on the PAPACY ITSELF by so-called ‘Trad Inc. thought leaders’ escalate as they, sadly, careen towards apostasy. That’s right. These people are talking behind closed doors about total apostasy – as in there is no Church, and either no God, or if there is a God, our conception of Him is totally wrong. Sedevacantism is peanuts compared to apostasy, which is where the false base premise of Antipope Bergoglio being or ever having been the Pope invariably leads. It leads to a denial of the Divinity of Christ – total apostasy by definition. I’ve been ranting this for years now.

Sadly, I can’t say I’m surprised. But, the priority now is mitigation of the damage that this is causing (especially this dripping hatred of the Papacy in se) and the terrible damage and scandal that will come if and when these ‘Trad Inc. thought leaders’ actually publicly apostatize. God forbid.

Tu es Petrus, et super hanc petram aedificabo Ecclesiam Meam.

Words have meaning, especially when they come from the lips of Our Lord and Savior in the Gospels.

Pray for Pope Benedict XVI, for the Papacy, and for Holy Mother Church, of which the Pope, Christ’s Vicar on earth, is the visible and supernaturally protected head, whether he likes it or not.)

—————————————

Begin Transcript:

If holding the base premise that Jorge Bergoglio is now or ever has been the Pope requires you to:

-Tear down and deny the authority of the papacy… CHECK

-Deny the dogma of the indefectibility of the Church… CHECK

-Deny Papal Infallibility, that is, Vatican I, and thus believe that Christ has broken His promise, and thus deny Christ’s Divinity… CHECK

-Go against every saint and Church father… CHECK

-Deny visible, objective reality as we have covered in this presentation… CHECK

Violate the Law of Non-contradiction… CHECK

-AND, change your own position 180 degrees. All these people on the “conservative” and “Trad” right, six years ago today when Pope Benedict was living in the Apostolic Palace, and plotting his faux-resignation, every one of these people would have defended the Papacy, Papal Infallibility, I mean, it was just a common thing. You believed it.  Now these people have turned 180 degrees and are on a daily basis attacking the Papacy. 180 degree turn.  With all of these criteria here above.

Denying dogma.

Holding positions that necessarily lead almost immediately to a denial of the Divinity of Christ.  COME ON!

How could you NOT begin from the assumption that the error must be with YOUR base premise, and NOT with God, His Holy Church, and His saints?  How could you sit here and it not INSTANTLY occur to you that YOU must be the one that is wrong?

I must be holding a false base premise.  There MUST be something wrong with my assumption that Bergoglio is the Pope. Not with the Papacy. Not with the Church. Not with the saints, not with anything else.’

The narcissism….

I am hard-pressed to think of a group that has been a bigger failure over the past century than theologians and canon lawyers… and yet.  AND YET.  We’re all supposed to bow and scrape to them? You can’t even think THIS through?  It hasn’t even occurred to you that maybe the problem isn’t God, His Church and all the saints – maybe, maybe the problem is with YOUR base premise?  A group of people who have done nothing but fail for almost a century now, that is theologians and canon lawyers.”

Again, the TIMESTAMP you want here is 02:06:45.

 

Stop calling them “theologians”. They are “Bible lawyers”.

Or “Bible shysters” if you prefer.

St. Athanasius was a theologian.

St. Augustine was a theologian.

St. Thomas Aquinas was a theologian.

These hacks today calling themselves ‘theologians’ are simply people who pride themselves on their ability to argue that the Word of God means the diametrical opposite of what it actually says.

Hence, “Bible lawyers”: shystering everything true and holy until everything false and evil is not only permitted, but violently demanded.

Words have meaning. Stop calling these people ‘theologians’. The term you are looking for is ‘BIBLE LAWYERS.’

His name is Uh-GUS-tin, not OG-us-teen.

Although it must be conceded that by now the city in Florida (the oldest continuously inhabited European settlement in the U.S. – established ARSH 1565) is pronounced in the corrupted way – Saint OG-us-teen.  The mispronunciation is too entrenched when referring to the city in Florida.  Alas.

Enjoy just a tiny sample of the wisdom of one of the four great Doctors and Fathers of the Church, St. Augustine of Hippo.


“To be under pressure is inescapable. Pressure takes place through all the world; war, siege, the worries of state. We all know men who grumble under these pressures and complain. They are cowards. They lack splendour. But there is another sort of man who is under the same pressure but does not complain, for it is the friction which polishes him. It is the pressure which refines and makes him noble.”


“Learn to dance, so when you get to heaven the angels know what to do with you.”


“Truth is not private property.”


“The truth is like a lion; you don’t have to defend it. Let it loose; it will defend itself.”


“God provides the wind, Man must raise the sail.”


“Hope has two beautiful daughters; their names are Anger and Courage. Anger at the way things are, and Courage to see that they do not remain as they are.”

More SCA Mailbag: “You are absolutely correct, the SCA is a cult..”

Ann, 

My husband and I have been in the SCA for many years and have been re-thinking our membership lately for a number of reasons. You are absolutely correct, the SCA is a cult, but it is a very subtle one. 

First, I must point out (and this isn’t meant as a blanket defense of the SCA) there are plenty of  conservative folks in the organization, like my husband and myself. I read your post about the SCA after seeing a near-hysterical rant about it on FB from a lady who, to my knowledge, is not a swinger; there are a lot of people in the SCA who aren’t. It’s entirely possible they are unaware of a lot. There are many women in the SCA who enjoy hand sewing, costuming, and cooking — and that’s all (although it’s hilarious listening to them sit around, hand sewing in their laps, pots aboil on the stove, raging on about feminism and the patriarchy. I’m not kidding.) My husband has enjoyed the “heavy weapons” fighting; it’s good exercise, and just as with the women, there are plenty of fairly conservative men in the SCA. For many years politics was simply not mentioned, although one was expected to be a good sport and be “tolerant.” Also, when my husband and I first joined we weren’t Catholic or even practicing Christians. We live in a small city with a smaller group so we’ve probably missed some of the worst but we’ve heard about it. 

The real harm of the SCA is more subtle than simply sexual abuse. It lures people in, as you say, who feel lonely and nerdy, who love books and history. One is encouraged to work and work for “the Dream,” whatever that is (“the dream” means living full-time in SCA character/camp. -AB), to work one’s fingers to the bone in the faint hope that one of the “Peers,” that is, fake nobility, will take notice and invite you to join their household. Most of these households are not led by sexual predators, but some are what are called “polyamorous,” that is, swingers. We were never invited to join the second group because we made it clear we weren’t interested, but one finally notices that the Christian members are never the “inner circle,” and seldom win the top awards. The real leaders and people in the know are very secretive, so we usually only hear about things second and third hand.

You realize that only people with no real family to speak of are in the inner circle; that seems to be a requirement, even more that being a swinger. Nobody who is in the elite group, and believe me, that is how they think of themselves, has any ties to family. Many people in the SCA report (this I have heard personally many times) that they were sexually abused as children, and they are the ones who will tell anyone who will listen that the SCA is their “real family.” That right there ought to be a red flag for a cult, but the SCA avoids that by not barring anyone from leaving. It is a clever cult, which operates by carrot dangling. I suppose most of us who join are high-IQ geeks who never fit in, so this works really well for a very long time for both progressive sorts and more conservative. 

Things have been going downhill, though, and fast. This last summer, an orgy was advertised on a public Facebook page for an SCA event. Several conservative people I know expressed shock but nobody publicly complained about it. The orgy-givers got away with it by organizing as a loose confederation of SCA members giving themselves some pagan name and pretending to be outside the SCA, and then having the orgy on an adjacent area not technically within the SCA event. I believe they did this at several events during 2018 and probably 2019 too.

No one should ever allow their teenager to attend an SCA event. Bear in mind that one of the main activities of SCA local groups is having “demos,” or public demonstrations of SCA activities at elementary schools, universities, and festivals, in the hopes of getting new members. 

Of course, all members, even the most obtuse, surely have heard by now about child abuse in the SCA , about pedophiles trying to get into children’s activities, that sort of thing, but on the other hand, nobody ever mentions it to new members, so maybe they don’t. (The SCA as a whole had to pay out millions in Pennsylvania over a convicted child abuser who took charge of “children’s activities.” )The sad thing is that it is the conservative members who would be most likely to bring children and family into the SCA, not realizing what they are getting into. Most members, even members for years, know very little about all this. I myself had no idea that Walter Breen (the husband of Marion Zimmer Bradley, who founded the SCA) was a convicted pedophile who spent years in prison until I read their daughter’s harrowing account. 

The final straw has been the increased politicizing and policing of even local groups. I’ve seen monitoring of member’s FB pages for conservative political comments, and attempts made to get conservative members ostracized; and kingdoms and the SCA as a whole adopting progressive statements on inclusivity and sexual harassment. The organization is becoming “converged,” as they say.  Even the most head-in-the-sand members, like my husband and myself, must now be aware that conservative Christians are not welcome anymore, if we ever were.

I wish we hadn’t gotten so deeply enmeshed with the SCA. All of our social life revolves around the SCA. We seldom go to events anymore, but all our friends are ex-SCA. It is a cult and gets its claws in deep. 

Please do not use my real name. 

Sincerely, 

Gettin’ Outta Dodge


More info about the SCA founders, who were pedophiles:


Ann,

One of the founders of SCA, and the acknowledged orginator of the name, Marion Zimmer Bradley, was recently exposed as a lifelong degenerate and child abuser, by her own daughter. Bradley achieved great success as a fantasy author, is still lauded in feminist circles as an early icon of “woke” fiction.

Bradley’s husband of convenience and partner in crime, Walter Breen, was a serial pedophile who haunted the sci-fi convention scene, and whose victim count probably ranges in the many hundreds. The story is chilling, and textbook DN behavior. They used their own children as objects for their gratification from the earliest ages.

The daughter, Moira Greyland, emerged from more than a decade and a half of horrific abuse, and ended up finding Christ, who she credits as helping her endure and saving her from those depths. In 2017 she wrote a harrowing memoir about the period, “The Last Closet: The Dark Side of Avalon”

Ann, thank you for all you have done and continue to due shining light on this crucial topic.

God bless,

~ J

Mailbag: My advice to anyone who thinks it may be fun to join the SCA? Don’t do it.

Ann,

Regarding your recent post on the Society for Creative Anachronism.

I have to say you penned a very accurate description, myself having been a member of the SCA for nearly ten years, beginning in the late 80’s.

At the time I worked for a Catholic Church (Novus Ordo), and with a love of medieval history, naively thought this was an awesome organization to join. Our small group (many working at the church with me) recreated a medieval Abbey, and worked hard to keep it authentic to the time period (researched the Latin, documents, rites, iconography, etc.)

One would think this would be a no-brainer, as researching medieval history is to research the Church!

Wrong.

The SCA created a secular revision of history or, as they put it in their own published literature, “Recreate the middle ages as they SHOULD HAVE BEEN.” (emphasis mine)

While we never experienced any direct hostility with other members – in fact, there were some who became genuinely interested in Church history – the environment at EVERY event was most decidedly hedonistic:

• Many were fetishists who liked to dress up and pretend they were a D & D character (think “wizard garb” and chain mail bikinis…yeah, real sticklers for historic authenticity).

• A large number of admitted communists and anarchists.

• Often proudly joked that they were the world’s largest and best singles group.

• Paganism was everywhere, with the whole nature worship being the most visibly prevalent.

To relate incidents that I PERSONALLY witnessed:

1 One man convicted and jailed for life for child rape and possession of child pornography

2 One man in his 50’s caught trying to seduce/rape a 13 year old girl

3 Pagan/Satanic rites – pentagrams, candles, goat statues, nude group sex worship, tarot cards, etc.

4 Flamboyant homosexual behavior and groups.

5 Mental and physical child abuse.

6 All of this in a so-called “family” environment, with young children exposed to it all.

Being in my early twenties, I quickly fell into this trap. Not because I actually believed in the wicca/ satan crap (didn’t even believe in God anymore), but because I had access to heavy drinking and casual sex with attractive girls who “offered it up”.

So, what happened to some of those in our group, who joined with good but misguided intentions?

• One married woman broke down and disappeared after trying to seduce a priest.

• The priest in our group left the priesthood to become an episcopal priest.

• One woman never married, is a former nurse still into reiki and crystals, and is totally miserable.

• One is still a religious education director at a very liberal novus ordo church, and is a fanatic “Papa Jorgee-The-First” worshipper.

Oh, and me: I fell out of the Church for over 35 years, two attempted suicides in my early twenties, a narcissistic and directionless life, only having returned to the Church two years ago after finding an FSSP parish and an incredible pastor willing to spend hours one on one with me and my wife.

My advice to anyone who thinks it may be fun to join the SCA. Don’t do it. If you love history, and would like to pursue and research the arts and crafts of that era, do it on your own. It is a fun and rewarding hobby (I took up blacksmithing in recent years). The historic aspects of the SCA are nothing more than a cover to give them a veneer of legitimacy, and to snag a non-profit designation from the government.

I’m not one to throw around the Satanic influence label on a whim, but I will completely agree with you on the demonic influence within the organization that is known as the SCA.

Yours in Christ,

Faulty Catholic

The Sex Pervert’s Refuge: “But, It’s CONSENSUAL!!”

Isn’t it something how these tactics and mantras repeat amongst malefactors?  It’s almost enough to make one suspect that there is a non-human personal intelligence of unquenchable spite and evil looming behind it all….

So the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) post touched a raw nerve, to put it mildly.  And, not surprisingly, my email box filled up with angry emails – ALMOST EVERY ONE OF WHICH ADMITTED THAT WHAT I WROTE WAS TRUE.  I am not surprised by this, because in my online research on SCA, I saw this over and over again.  “Lies!  It’s all lies! Well, of course, there are people in SCA who regularly engage in swinging and group sex at SCA camps, but IT’S ALL CONSENSUAL!!!”

I also loved the emails from SCA people proudly declaring that “SCA has been on the forefront of acceptance and tolerance of the LGBT community since its inception over fifty years ago….”

Um, yeah, thanks for proving my point.  These people and the world are so far gone that they proudly cite the fact that SCA has been CRAWLING WITH SEX PERVERTS since day one (remember, SCA was founded on the Berkeley campus in ARSH 1966 – ground zero of the normalization of sexual perversion) as some sort of rebuttal? A quick reminder:

L stands for SEX PERVERTS
G stands for SEX PERVERTS
B stands for SEX PERVERTS
T stands for SEX PERVERTS

Just about the only email that came without any admission, only name calling, had THIS as the email address and avatar.  You can’t make this up:

Thanks for additional confirmation of the occult presence in SCA there, Tiger.

Oh, and I also got an obscene voicemail (again, thanks for confirming), and two threats of litigation.  We laff.  We laff HARD.  You kids knock yourselves out with that.  The entire internet is filled with SCA horror stories, it’s an open secret that isn’t even a secret that SCA is a swingers cult, and this is the realtime on my last remaining checking account, but you guys go ahead and plop down a $100k retainer with some shyster lawyer, come after me and draw as much publicity to yourselves as you would like.  The more people who know about this, the better.

I think I might have a $5 Starbucks gift card in the back of my junk drawer, too.

“IT’S ALL CONSENSUAL!!!”

Folks, THIS is the fruit of the Freemasonic takeover of the post-Christian west.  Think about it.  To these SCA people, and everyone else, if you stop and think about it, the ONLY metric by which any act is judged is whether or not it is “CONSENSUAL”.  As long as a person CONSENTS, they are “without sin.”  Now think this through.  What this presupposes is that the individual HIMSELF is the standard and arbiter of morality.  There are no objective moral norms – there is only the will of the individual.  There is no external standard – in other words, there is no God.  The individual man himself is his own god.  BINGO! Freemasonry.  The deification of man.  Man as “god”.

To wit: Antipope Bergoglio, from October of ARSH 2013:

This mindset is so pervasive, so ubiquitous in post-Christian culture today that most people don’t even realize it is there.  Look at Oprah, certainly the high priestess of this satanic mindset, especially to women.  What has Oprah been preaching for over 30 years now?  “My truth. Your truth.” Zero external standard.  ZERO OBJECTIVE MORAL NORMS. “You do you.”

And, of course, who else is pushing, pushing, pushing “CONSENT” as their mantra?  Yep.  All the sodomite bishops and priests.  Draw an intrinsically arbitrary line at the 18th birthday (which they desperately want to drop to 16, and eventually 13), and then all of these priests and bishops chasing and bedding seminarians and priests become TOTALLY WITHOUT SIN because… IT WAS ALL CONSENSUAL!!  Because there is nothing intrinsically wrong with a man jamming his p**** into another man’s feces-laden rectal vault (or mouth, or hand) and using the rectal vault (or mouth, or hand) as the point of friction for masturbation.  According to these perverts, that is all morally neutral.  As is a married couple having sex with other people – that is morally neutral according to these perverts as well.  As long as it is CONSENSUAL.

Deny the Divinity of Christ and instead divinize yourself, and you can then start giving both yourself and others “permission to sin”, because if Christ isn’t God, then His Agony in the Garden and His Passion and death has no real meaning, and certainly no redemptive power.  What you do behind closed doors becomes “none of His damn business”, because “who is He – just another man who got greased by the Romans – to judge?”

Just as the SCA people circle wagons and all repeat the same mantra: IT’S ALL CONSENSUAL!, so too are the sodomite clerics and prelates beating EXACTLY the same drum. The Freemasonic takeover has pretty much convinced the entire post-Christian west that the ONLY genital act that can ever, ever be sinful is FORCIBLE RAPE.  Everything else is sinless, because IT’S CONSENSUAL!

Not only is there zero acknowledgement of the fact that consensual adultery, sodomy, whatever is intrinsically wrong, the very suggestion becomes “slander” and “hate speech”, and grounds for censorship, litigation, and soon enough economic paralysis, criminal action and finally, incarceration and execution.  In the Church, the cries are beginning to go up for “excommunication” of people who will not follow Antipope Bergoglio into his Freemasonic Antichurch, with yours truly being one of the first.

Finally, let’s look at the formal definition of sin, and note that the concept of CONSENT is an intrinsic component, and that the Freemasonic-satanic infiltrators have taken the criterion of CONSENT and completely inverted it into a justification and absolution. Every time one of these people bellows their “consent” to their sins, they are proclaiming their own guilt – and satan squeals with delight. It reminds me of the sodomitical inversion of the deadly sin of PRIDE into a satanic “virtue”.

CCC 1859:
Mortal sin requires full knowledge and complete consent. It presupposes knowledge of the sinful character of the act, of its opposition to God’s law. It also implies a consent sufficiently deliberate to be a personal choice. Feigned ignorance and hardness of heart do not diminish, but rather increase, the voluntary character of a sin.

RECLAIM THE RAINBOW! The Noah Initiative Starts Now!

How sad is it that we all now wince and recoil whenever we see a rainbow.  Well, an initiative has just launched to reclaim the Rainbow, and pray for the conversion of sodomites, and the edification of people struggling themselves with Same Sex Attraction (SSA), and a general increase in chastity in the world.

Please spread the word!

HERE IS THE HOMEPAGE FOR THE NOAH INITIATIVE.

The Noah Initiative gathers men and women together for the sake of making reparation and praying for those stuck in the grips of sexual sin AND our Catholic brethren who struggle courageously with same sex attraction. This isn’t a singling out, but rather a great desire to alleviate the difficulties and anxieties that come with this daily struggle of our Christian brethren. We are much stronger together. And God never forgets His covenant. But it is good for us to keep on knocking and seeking the graces we need, daily.

Fast on Wednesdays and pray the Rosary that day for all men and women who struggle with same sex attraction, for the conversion of those who live a homosexual lifestyle, and, in general, for an increase of a culture of chastity inside and outside the Church. Strive to make a holy confession at least every two weeks. [Fast: two collations and a normal meal, or greater fast, if you desire].

Pray the following devotions daily for the above intention:

Our Father…
Jesus, meek and humble of Heart, make our hearts like unto Thine!
Mary, by thy Immaculate Conception, make our bodies pure and our souls holy. Hail Mary… (3x)
St. Joseph, guardian of purity, pray for us.
Our guardian angels, defend us.
All saints in Heaven who suffered these temptations, pray for us.
Glory Be…

God said: This is the sign of the covenant that I am making between Me and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come:
I set My bow in the clouds to serve as a sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.
When I bring clouds over the earth, and the bow appears in the clouds,
I will remember My covenant between Me and you and every living creature—every mortal being—so that the waters will never again become a flood to destroy every mortal being.
When the bow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature—every mortal being that is on earth.
God told Noah: This is the sign of the covenant I have established between Me and every mortal being that is on earth.

Genesis 9:12-17

RECLAIM THE RAINBOW!!

UPDATED: A Warning: The Medieval Reenactment “Society for Creative Anachronism” (SCA) is a SEX CULT

EXTREME ADULT CONTENT ALERT.  ADULT EYES ONLY.

This piece has been a long time coming.  I was alerted to this a few years ago, researched it, saw it was true, and then heard enough other anecdotes from across North America to become convinced (with encouragement) that a warning needs to go out, especially to those in Trad Catholic parishes. The best way to protect oneself from sex predators is INFORMATION.

We’ve probably all been to a Renaissance Fair or at least heard of people who go off on weekends and do Medieval/Renaissance role playing/reenactment stuff.  People make their own costumes, many learn fencing and archery, and many also learn genuine artisanal crafts such as blacksmithing.  Hey – that all sounds pretty cool, right?  In this day and age, one could hardly argue with a person who instead of sitting in front of a TV watching mindless sports, or playing video games, goes out and actually DOES SOMETHING and interacts with other people right?  Absolutely.

Enter the SCA, which stands for The Society for Creative Anachronism.  SCA is by far the largest organization of Medieval “role playing”, which today has picked up the term “LARPing”, with LARP standing for “Live Action Role Playing”.  The SCA was founded in ARSH 1966 in Berkeley, California (red flag number one) and today has tens of thousands of members in chapters all over the world.  Members join and adopt a persona or character, and then live in this “alternative world” as their character at SCA camps and gatherings.

Here’s the problem.  While SCA does in fact involve Medieval reenactment, it is also at its core a sex cult revolving around group sex, orgies, “swinging”, wife swapping, child sex, and all manner of truly sickening behavior.  During the day, SCA camps and gatherings are basically Medieval LARPing, something that on the surface would appear to be family-friendly.  After the sun goes down, SCA camps become orgies, with the participants still remaining in character.  “What happens at SCA stays in SCA” to paraphrase the Las Vegas motto.

So what does this have to do with Traditional Catholics, Trad Catholic parishes, etc.?

The problem is that SCA people – and remember, SCA is a sex cult – are strongly attracted to Traditional Catholicism because they are attracted to the AESTHETICS of the Traditional Liturgy and much of the art associated with Traditional Catholicism today, which certainly is from the Medieval and Renaissance periods.  They have little to no interest in the CATHOLIC RELIGION.  They only are attracted to Traditional Catholicism as its visual aesthetic seems to fit in with their Medieval/Renaissance fantasy sex cult life. They are also very interested in the SOCIALIZING aspect of a parish, and often will attempt to form a clique around themselves within a parish of fellow “aesthetes” and “cool people” who don’t go in for all of that piety crap. Division and parish turmoil generally ensues.  As one can imagine, SCA people who infiltrate Trad Parishes tend to form alliances with sodomite clergy and laymen.  This can essentially destroy a parish community, scandalize people of good will, not to mention the damage to individual souls.

So, these SCA people show up in Trad parishes and seem to be super keen on the SUPERFICIAL, and even try to get themselves entrenched and involved in the parish, but, as it was put to me, something is very… OFF with these people.  The behavior doesn’t match.  They will be extremely interested in and critique the vestments, chant, architecture and art, but have a sometimes visceral revulsion to RELIGION.  Prayer? Sorry, too busy.  Rosary? BOOOORING.  Adoration?  Why?  Mass?  Whatever, when I feel like it, but it better be entertaining, and not go on for too long. Sacrifice? Penance? The domain of “keeners” and “religious nuts”.  Advancing in sanctity? Yeah, you go ahead. Good luck with that.  Personal relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ? EYEROLL.

The One Holy Catholic And Apostolic Church, the Bride of Christ, outside of which there is no salvation, the Supernatural reality, is nothing more to these people than a ready-made matrix for their fantasy-world escapist role playing games and sexual kinks.

SCA is also a CULT, so SCA people divide the world into those who are in SCA, and those who are not, and SCA people are obviously SUPERIOR to those who are not.  So, if you are NOT interested in playing dress-up, playing with swords, spending every weekend in a reenactment camp, and dedicating all of your free time and money to SCA then you are clearly stupid and inferior.  If you were intelligent, you would share the SCA cult’s interests.  In this way, they quasi-bully people into coming to SCA gatherings and recruiting them to join, especially people who might be lonely, or considered “nerds”.  So they target people who are already somewhat isolated or psychologically vulnerable and recruit them in to SCA by telling them that SCA and “nerdiness” is actually an ELITE SOCIETY.  And recruiting and getting fresh meat into SCA is a very high priority.  Why?

SCA members openly joke that “SCA” actually stands for “Society of Consenting Adults”.  The main point of the SCA and its gatherings is group sex and orgies.  After a while, people become bored with the two or three dozen people that they regularly have sex with at these orgies, and thus the ultimate rush or high becomes NEW PEOPLE.  Literally, fresh meat.  So, in order to keep the perverted sexual satisfaction level high, recruiting new people in becomes the highest priority. Sadly, there are many people who were considered “nerds” and felt socially isolated when they were in school who believe that having many sex partners is a refutation of the social isolation they felt as children and teenagers.  This is why Palo Alto, California has today become one of the most sexually perverted and depraved cities on earth – because when you give a bunch of tech nerds with zero belief in God tens of millions of dollars (or more), they “get back” at the kid who teased them in the fifth grade by having orgies with p*rn stars every weekend.

Another aspect of the SCA cult is, as you would imagine, the sexual abuse of children.  SCA LARPers claim that in their camps the laws of society as they were in Medieval Europe apply.  As we all know, people married MUCH younger than they do today, partly because the human life expectancy was so much shorter, and also because people were simply more psychologically mature at an earlier age.  Life was hard, childhood was short.  Girls were ready to marry at 14, boys at 16.  Naturally, the sex perverts in SCA use this as an excuse/justification to prey especially upon female children.  Sadly, there are many stories of teenagers who fell into SCA running away from home and drifting homeless among SCA cult members, who then use them for sex. The saddest SCA story I have heard is of a girl who joined as a teenager and was a top member of SCA in her region for almost 20 years.  She eventually adopted the persona of a fully-habited nun, and would systematically fornicate with every man in the camp DRESSED AS AND IN THE CHARACTER of a nun almost every weekend. Abortions and disease followed, of course.  The level of blasphemy makes one’s blood run cold. So you see, folks, the entwining of sex and blasphemy and sacrilege is NOT exclusive to clergy and prelates.  Laypeople can also descend to those depths quite independently.

Finally, it will come as a surprise to exactly no one reading this that SCA has also become a hotbed of occult activity.  Wicca, satanism, it all goes hand-in-hand with sexual perversion, and NOTHING attracts demons so much as sacrilegious and/or blasphemous sins involving the Sixth Commandment.

It is important to know the truth about SCA not only within the context of Traddyland, but I have also been told stories of people who had SCA cultists aggressively trying to recruit them in the secular workplace, and freely admitting that “we just all lie around and f*** each other all night.  It’s fun.”  So, you might never come across SCA in your parish (please God!), but you might come across it at work, etc.  It is thus important for people to know the truth about SCA and for parents to warn their children about SCA and to never, ever accept an invitation to an SCA event or gathering. Needless to say, I will never step foot anywhere near a Renaissance Fair ever again.

UPDATE FROM A TRAD IN PENNSYLVANIA:

Ann,

Interestingly, the “Ren Fest” in Pittsburgh just started so people are talking about it. Apparently the local volunteer fire company enjoys hanging around there at night, you know,” just in case a camp fire gets out of control.” They say the sex is so raunchy and there is so much debauchery that these fire fighter paramedic types consider it free, live p*rn.

Sorry for the depressing post, but I do hope this warning helps, especially preventatively.

Mother Most Pure, pray for us.
