Barnhardt Podcast #090: Back-to-School Pot Luck

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

Rumors of Ann and SuperNerd’s disagreements have been greatly exaggerated! In this episode we discuss a bunch of smaller topics from the Chinese Social Credit Score, censorship-proof publishing, Cardinal Burke’s “friends” in low places, Disney’s ability to screw up everything it touches, whether AirBNB is merely complying with federal law or actively pushing the gay agenda (or both?), and how to educate a woman on modesty without it turning into the Spanish Inquisition.

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.

Neumayr is in Buenos Aires! Pray for his safety! Plus: Get ready for fake “saint” Evita Peron AND Cardinal Battista Ricca

I was tickled to see yesterday that George Neumayr is doing what actual journalists do and has gone down to Buenos Aires to talk to the people on the ground down there who are victims of a global media blackout on any negative reportage on Antipope Bergoglio’s truly deplorable past in Argentina.

To all my Argentine readers and contacts, please do what you can to help George Neumayr get the word out about Jorge Bergoglio.  He is the closest thing to the big-time media we are likely to get.  He has already done excellent work in exposing the corruption in Washington D.C. surrounding McCarrick (codename Blanche), Wuerl (codename Donna Guerl), Bransfield, Zubik (codename The French Kisser), Rossi and that entire coven of sodomite predators.

In Neumayr’s first dispatch from Argentina HERE, he reports what we have long known: that Jorge Bergoglio is a slack-jawed imbecile, widely known to be a total ignoramus, totally uneducated and incurious about anything except his own personal power; “an uncultured, ill-mannered flake” as one person put it.  Further, Argentines have been screaming since minute one of the Bergoglian usurpation and Antipapacy that Jorge Bergoglio is – to quote one of Neumayr’s contacts – “a son of a bitch.”

Or, “Diabolical Narcissist Psychopath.”

Neumayr also reports that Antipope Bergoglio is so obsessed with Peronism that it is seriously expected that Antipope Bergoglio will move to have Evita Peron fake-canonized before all is said and done.  NOT SATIRE, folks.

Do also click here to read about Antipope Bergoglio’s OTHER Gustavo (aside from the child sex trafficker/pimp Gustavo Vera), Gustavo Zanchetta, the Argentine sodomite predator that Antipope Bergoglio promptly made bishop of Oran, Argentina, right on the Bolivian border, where Vera’s main pipeline of trafficked children from Bolivian peasant villages crosses into Argentina.  So Bergoglio’s boyfriend VERA is running child sex slaves into Argentina right through the very city where Bergoglio’s beloved Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta is sexually assaulting seminarians in the Oran seminary which Antipope Bergoglio handed to him on a silver platter.

If that’s not bad enough, I can add another anecdote from Rome.  A person who shall go unnamed was at a reception at which the notorious flaming sodomite Monsignor Battista Ricca that Antipope Bergoglio instantly put in charge of the Casa Santa Marta hotel that Antipope Bergoglio lives in on the grounds of the Vatican, but also installed at the Vatican Bank as “Prelate of the Vatican Bank”, was present.  This reception was around the time of a consistory of Cardinals, and the person upon seeing Ricca, went over and fake-graciously said, “Why, Monsignor, I’m surprised YOU weren’t included in this consistory!” To which Ricca replied in complete seriousness, “Yes, I know, it has been promised, and I expect the red hat very soon.”

Ricca was well-known to Bergoglio from South America. Ricca was a Vatican diplomat posted in Montevideo, Uruguay, just across the bay in essentially the same metroplex from Buenos Aires, and Ricca was a flagrant, notorious and scandalous presence, shacking up and carrying on OPENLY with his sodomite sex partner – a former Swiss Army captain named Patrick Haari. Further, Ricca was caught in flagrante delicto in an elevator with a boy child prostitute in Montevideo, and got the crap beat out of him at least once cruising for sex in a public park notorious for such evil activity. The people of Montevideo were so outraged that they rose up and demanded Ricca’s expulsion, whereupon Ricca was sent back to Rome, to resume his place in the Vatican Bathhouse. Ricca and Haari’s luggage was initially sent by Haari to the Vatican as diplomatic baggage – and the Vatican refused delivery. This luggage, when later found and opened, was found to contain a pistol, enormous quantities of sodomite pornography, and dozens of condoms.

Folks, a man need not be a bishop to be made a Cardinal.  In fact, up until ARSH 1917, laymen could be Cardinals.  Today, a man need only be a priest to be made a Cardinal, so yes, Ricca could be given a red hat at any time. Don’t be surprised if it happens.

"Do you think I'm smart, Battista?"

Derivative proofset 6.66 x 10⌃14 that Bergoglio isn’t the Pope.

Go gett’em, Neumayr!

St. John Eudes

Eudes_Two_Hearts

St. John Eudes will always be a favorite because he has one of the most informative and explicatory quotes about what is happening to us, the Church and the world.  He simply and directly answers the question, “My God, why is this happening?”:

“The most evident mark of God’s anger, and the most terrible castigation He can inflict upon the world, is manifest when He permits His people to fall into the hands of a clergy who are more in name than in deed, priests who practice the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than the charity and affection of devoted shepherds. They abandon the things of God to devote themselves to the things of the world and, in their saintly calling of holiness, they spend their time in profane and worldly pursuits. When God permits such things, it is a very positive proof that He is thoroughly angry with His people and is visiting His most dreadful wrath upon them. 
–Saint John Eudes 

“But Ann, but Ann! How do you reconcile this to the Papacy and the Petrine Promise?”

Easy. Pope Benedict XVI is the worst Pope ever for what he has done – this horrific error and fleeing from the wolves. But he is still Peter, and the Petrine Promise holds, and the negative supernatural protection is still there. Pope Benedict XVI is the Pope we deserve.

Here is another quote from St. John Eudes on the effect of our sins on Our Lord’s Sacred Heart.  Read it well.

The first cause of those most painful Wounds in the Sacred Heart of Our Redeemer is our sins. We read in the life of Saint Catherine of Genoa that one day God let her see the horror of one tiny venial sin. She assures us that, although this vision lasted but a moment, she saw nevertheless an object so frightening that the blood froze in her veins and she swooned away in an agony that would have killed her if God had not preserved her to relate to others what she had seen. Wherefore she declared that if she were in the very depths of a sea of flaming fire and it were in her power to be set free, on condition that she should once more behold such a spectacle, she would choose to remain rather than to escape. If the sight of the smallest venial sin brought this saint to such a pass, what must we think of the state to which Our Saviour was reduced by seeing all the sins of the universe? He had them continually before His Eyes, and His vision being infinitely more powerful than that of Saint Catherine, He could behold infinitely more horror.

He saw the immeasurable insult and dishonour it caused His Father; He saw the damnation of a countless number of souls resulting from those sins. As He had infinite love for His Father and His creatures, the sight of all those sins rent His Heart with countless Wounds, such that if we were able to count all the sins of men, which are more numerous than the drops of water in the sea, we would then be able to count the Wounds of the loving Heart of Jesus.

The second cause of His Wounds is the infinite love of His Sacred Heart for all of His children, and His constant vision of all the afflictions and sufferings that are to happen to them, especially all the torments that His holy martyrs are to suffer. When a mother watches her beloved child suffering, she feels the pain more keenly than the child. Our Saviour’s love for us is so tremendous that if the love of all parents were centred in a single heart, it would not represent even a spark of the love for us that burns in His Heart. Our pains and sorrows, ever present to His vision and seen most clearly and distinctly, were so many Wounds bleeding in His paternal Heart. These Wounds were so painful and deep that they would have caused His death a thousand times over, even immediately after His birth, if He had not miraculously preserved Himself, because during His whole earthly life His Sacred Heart was continually pierced by many mortal Wounds of love.

Therefore we have the greatest obligation to honour the gracious Heart that sustained so many Wounds of love for us. With what affection should we embrace, and endure all our afflictions, out of love for Jesus, our Saviour, since He first bore them for love of us! Should they not be most sweet to us, since they have already passed through His most gentle and loving Heart? What a horror we should have of our sins that have caused so many Wounds and such intense grief to the divine Heart of our Redeemer!

Let us learn from the foregoing example that it is not our Redeemer’s fault if we are lost. There are hearts so hard that, even if Jesus Himself were to come down from heaven to preach to them and they were to see Him covered with Wounds and bathed in His Blood, they would still not be converted. O my God, let us not be one of them, but give us the grace to open our ears to the voice of all the sacred Wounds of Your Body and Your Heart, which are so many mouths through which You call us unceasingly: ‘Redite, prævaricatores, ad cor — Return, transgressors, to the heart’, which means to My Heart that is all yours, since I have given it entirely to you. Return to that most loving Heart of your Father, which is full of love and mercy for you, which will receive you home, heaping upon you blessings.

This season’s must-have accessory for the on fleek Frankenbishop? Why, a PedoMiter, of course!

PedoMiter lives, folks.

Across the transom from a Polish reader:

Dear Ann,

Look at this photo of August 18, 2019, Piekary Śląskie, Poland. Bishop Andrzej Czaja, ordinary of the diocese of Opole, in the sodom miter – he probably brought it from Panama. This ‘Sodom’ plague spreads throughout the whole Church on the earth.

Epstein Hit Has World Taking a Second Look At Murdered Argentine Child Sex Trafficking Whistleblower Natacha Jaitt

Apparently these child sex people are some of the most dangerous people in the world. It stands to reason. Anyone evil enough to be sexually aroused by children would find murder to be absolutely nothing.

Epstein’s world seemed to revolve around females.

What Natacha Jaitt was trying to blow the whistle on was largely the trafficking of boys for sex, most especially by Antipope Bergoglio’s very, very, very, very close “friend” Gustavo Vera.

Recent reportage on Natacha Jaitt HERE.

A compendium of my posts on Jaitt and Antipope Bergoglio’s boy pimping “companion”, Gustavo Vera HERE.


I was told by an eyewitness that personally observed Bergoglio and Vera together inside the Vatican that they were ostentatiously and creepily physically close and touchy-feely to the point that it was very, very noticeable to everyone.

WHISTLEBLOWER NATACHA JAITT PERMANENTLY UNAVAILABLE FOR COMMENT.

From Argentine news:  “…in just under two weeks she [Jaitt] was going to go to trial in the wake of the complaint made by Mercedes Ninci and Gustavo Vera, for damages.”

Mailbag: An Interesting Gastrointestinal Physiology Meditation

Dearest Ann, 

As a result of reading your piece wherein you recommend adoring Our Lord to console Him regarding His sorrow at the state of His Church, and quote from “The Little Prince”, I have begun spending an hour daily (3-4pm) in a local Novus Ordo parish chapel. Thank you, sister in Christ! (I believe that it is actually I that need the ‘taming’, as described in the quote). 

Also, with regards to your piece June 13, ARSH 2018 regarding the eucharistic fast, I have lengthened the time of my pre-Mass fast (now 3 hours for liquids and 7 hours for solids).  So, again, thank you! 

I was meditating on the Gospel of St. Matthew 27:34, where we read “And they gave Him wine to drink mixed with gall; but when He had tasted it, He would not drink.” Gall is actually bile, a digestive enzyme that is secreted into the digestive tract when we eat. When we have food in our stomachs and receive Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist, we, too, are offering Him bile to drink…

God bless you, dear Ann!!


This is an interesting point. Technically, bile empties into the duodenum, which is the valve between the stomach and the small intestine. Certainly people have bile reflux into the stomach, but this is not normal. The Church estimates that the Real Presence persists in our bodies for approximately fifteen minutes, which should normally preclude Our Lord from coming into contact with bile even when the stomach is not empty.

But, as we all know, the stomach absolutely does secrete acid – hydrochloric acid, potassium chloride and sodium chloride in fact – and if you have food in your stomach, then yes, when you receive Our Eucharistic Lord into your body, He is “drinking” your “bile”, if we use the word “bile” as a very general term for all acidic gastric juices. And as we all know from experiences of food poisoning, there is nothing much worse than the contents of the human stomach after a couple of hours of breakdown, after which the stomach contents become an extremely acidic slurry of proto-sewage. I would urge one and all to think long and hard about the charity of essentially throwing Our Lord into your internal acid sewage tank. Seriously. If that makes me “scrupulous”, then I’ll own that happily. Put it on my tombstone.

So, yes, I’ll not be receiving Our Lord unless my stomach is empty. I believe in the Real Presence, and EVERYTHING that goes along with that, including the realities of gastrointestinal physiology.

Remember folks, the Eucharistic fast was FROM MIDNIGHT under pain of MORTAL SIN until ARSH 1957, when Pope Pius XII was ill and nearing death. Look at the timing, look at the broad historical context, look at common sense about how our bodies work, look at how any belief in the Real Presence and Eucharistic piety has been under completely unrelenting attack, and just factor that into your calculus on the question.

I sure hope this helps. Happy Feast of St. Rock!

Forget the Fictional Romeo & Juliet. True Romance is Sts. Joachim & Anne.

Long story short, Joachim and Anne were childless, and thought that this was a sign of God’s displeasure. St. Joachim went off and did penance, and God, His ways being unsearchable and perfect, told St. Joachim to go home to St. Anne, and they would conceive a child. At the same time St. Anne was told in a locution to go meet her husband at the Golden Gate, and that they would conceive.

This image is by Giotto in the Scrovegni Chapel, and is stunning in its bold depiction of marital love. Especially for ARSH 1305.

The Blessed Virgin Mary was conceived naturally in the marital embrace, albeit without the stain of Original Sin. But she was conceived naturally by her elderly, up to then barren parents. The Embrace at the Golden Gate communicates with subtle yet unmistakable clarity the marital love and even “romance” between these Saints, and their kiss is symbolic of the subsequent conjugal act that resulted in the Immaculate Conception. It is especially edifying to see this in these dark days wherein anything to do with the marital embrace is being warped, twisted and perverted, and we’re all at risk of becoming totally cynical, or already are, with regards to marriage and its fruits.

Romeo and Juliet? Phuff. For REAL romance, it’s Joachim and Anne.
