Barnhardt Podcast #064: The Bifurcating Bishop’s Bewitching Bull-Bleep

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss not only the rise of the occult in society in general but also the outward manifestation of the infestation of occult persons and accoutrements by official actors at the top of the Roman Hierarchy’s power structure. No longer is the occult a hidden secret in the Vatican: for those with eyes to see it’s coming out of the closet and is on full display.

  • What is your source of the Catholic art on your website?

Barnhardt Podcast #062: No Way, Jorge!

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

CONTENT WARNING: Language and Subject Matter!!!

In this episode we talk about the weather — it’s not really that different than 100 years ago (we just tweet more about it now) — and the disappearance of the strong matriarchal moral pillar, formerly a staple of southern black culture but now gone with the wind. We also discussed the ongoing corruption in the Church and how it would be wonderful if someone could pull off a video sting operation against those perpetuating the Catholic Clerical Casting Couch, similar to what the folks at the Veritas Project have been doing.

Barnhardt Podcast #061: Sonorously Serenading the Supreme Squatter

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss — amid myriad tangents — Father Zuhlsdorf’s blog post describing Bergoglio being visibly distracted (disturbed?) by someone loudly yodeling “VI-GA-NO!” during the Sunday Angelus, a reference Archbishop Vigano’s recent revelation that Bergoglio personally covered up then-Cardinal McCarrick’s sexual assaults of seminarians. It was during the 1960s and 1970s that priestly vocations plummeted while those who remained were disproportionately disposed to same-sex attraction. It was also during this time that — coincidentally? — the Society of Saint Pius 10th was founded to form priests according to the tried and traditional formula and it was just as the first class of ordinandi were about to graduate that the SSPX was hit by the suspensions of 1976. And lastly, we couldn’t pass up recognizing the start of the annual season of trading concussions for cash: American Football!

Barnhardt Podcast #060: The Vigorous Vigano Veritas

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

(Fun activity for this episode: Find the timestamp wherein Ann literally starts beating on the table in front of her.)

(Feedback so far: “First twenty minutes of podcast are great apologetics.”)

In this episode we discuss the bombshell letter from Archbishop Vigano, a self-described old man who wants to face God’s judgement with a clear conscience. In his open letter, the Archbishop details his numerous reports to Rome about Cardinal McCarrick’s abuse and Bergoglio’s active cover-up of this and many similar situations, and calls for Bergoglio to resign. In this episode we cover the news as we know it right now; follow Ann’s blog for more information as this is a developing story.

Barnhardt Podcast #056: You Have No RIGHT to a Divorce

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In the very first “Conversations with Ann” edition of the Barnhardt Podcast, we welcome Bai (pronounced “Bay”, as in May Day) Macfarlane, founder of Mary’s Advocates, a lay non-profit organization whose goal is to strengthen marriage, reduce unilateral no-fault divorce, and support those who have been unjustly abandoned by their spouse. Bai and Ann have a no-holds barred discussion about marriage, “divorce”, and “decrees of nullity” which are being handed out like candy – all in the name of “mercy”. Ann asks Bai the 800 pound gorilla questions that other people won’t ask, such as, “What do you do if your bishop is a heretic and refuses to help defend your marriage?” and, “What does a faithful Catholic do if a cookie-cutter declaration of nullity is issued against their marriage which they are certain is false, and their marriage is valid?”

Quotes mentioned in this episode

Cardinal Raymond Burke said some tribunals are run by unprepared and unjust workers.

“With sadness, many times I have seen that the diocesan bishop has not sufficiently taken care to prepare well the necessary personnel for his tribunal. In other words, it is not the process that has need of modifications, but the practice of some bishops who do not provide well-prepared and just workers for their tribunals” (33 min. 43 sec.). http://marysadvocates.org/bishop-have-incompetent-and-unfair-staff-managing-tribunals/

From the video of Cardinal Raymond Burke — see here — telling a woman to follow conscience and appeal if she is concerned about her local tribunal’s abuses.

Separated Faithful Spouse: “I know I have valid marriage and need to live my sacramental marriage. But what do I tell my children (y’know) ‘why aren’t I following the church when the Church grants an annulment?’ Because there are abuses [if you live in one of those diocese] if you live in one of those diocese, and I know it was a valid marriage.

Cardinal Burke replies: “All you can say to your children what is your own conviction, and that you have to live according to your conscience. And that also, that the process for the declaration of nullity is not an infallible process. The judge makes the decision with moral certitude–that is–that for him there hasn’t been brought forth anything reasonable against the nullity of the marriage. But/ A declaration of nullity of marriage can–in the Church’s law–be contested, always contested, simply because we know that it is not a divinely inspired decision. [They do it] The judges, and everyone, they do their best. [But] So, if in your conscience, you know that it was a valid marriage, that’s the way you have to live.”

Msg. Cormac Burke, Retired Roman Rota Judge (author Covenanted Happiness: Love and Commitment in Marriage, and The Theology of Marriage; Personalism, Doctrine and Canon Law) wrote the following about the role of the faithful spouse in context to the confusion about the ‘good of the spouses’:

What can one say of the really shipwrecked marriage where for instance one of the spouses reneges on his or her conjugal commitment and walks out on the other? Is it possible to continue to speak of the “good of the spouses” in such a context? Or must one conclude, as would appear, that it also has been totally wrecked?

As regards the reneging spouse, certainly the marriage would scarcely seem capable of working any longer toward his or her “good”. Yet it can still work powerfully for the good of the other, if he or she remains true to the marriage bond. If that fidelity is maintained, moreover, it may in God’s providence act as a call to repentance, as a force of salvation, for the unfaithful spouse, perhaps in his or her very last moment on earth – when one’s definitive “bonum” is about to be decided (from The Object of Matrimonial Consent: A Personalist Analysis, here)

Future Podcast: “Ask me anything…”

It’s been just over 14 months since the Barnhardt Podcast launched, and while answering questions submitted by listeners is something we’ve done, we’ve not dedicated an episode exclusively to answering questions, so let’s fix that! If you’ve wondered why Ann got into finance instead of architecture, why she uses a Mac instead of Windows, who she would nominate for President if she could elect one on her vote alone, recipe recommendations for Friday evening dinner parties, or what started Ann’s journey to the Catholic Faith, submit your questions by sending an email to [email protected] or by recording your question as a voicemail (or sending it as a text message) to the Google Voice number: (302) 648-6373.
