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)

Barnhardt Podcast #055: Open Thecreths

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

Episode Content Rating Warning! No Children Allowed!

In this episode we discuss a topic which has been well documented and yet continues to hide in plain sight, supported by Beta Narcissists and both the willing and obliviously ignorant: the Lavender Mafia. Trading the contemplation of eternal things for earthly power, sins of the flesh, and mutually assured blackmail, the clerical legacy of “Cardinal Leonardine” is not only still with us but more powerful than ever, and don’t kid yourself, the Lavender Mafia overculture transcends the liberal-conservative-Trad spectrum.

Barnhardt Podcast #054: Speechless Gorillas and Naval Officers

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode, amid a few cases of buzzing interference, we discuss Koko the “talking” gorilla’s final release from a life of chocolatey abuse from Penny Patterson, the media’s melancholy about this precious primate, and set the record straight about the extent of an animal’s ability to communicate with humans. Not that humans are all great communicators: we cover news that broke this past week that the female Officer of the Deck and the female Tactical Action Officer (two people who should be in constant communication when a ship is at sea) were not speaking to one another. It’s not yet know if this was a matter of incompetence or a cat-fight that got out of control but the result was massive damage to a billion-and-a-half dollar ship and funerals for several of the sailors. Our ability as humans to communicate ideas and concepts is a wonderful gift: it would be a shame if our neglect and abuse of this gift resulted in something unfortunate.

Barnhardt Podcast #053: No Dogters Go To Heaven

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss the natural state of man which is to be fruitful and multiply, so much so that modern dual-income, no-child couples instinctively realize there’s a hole in their life and turn to furry quadrupeds as an ersatz replacement (even going as far as introducing their canine as “their dogter”). Related to this “four legs are better than two” insanity is a diminishing of the dignity of human life, which only accelerates the momentum behind the contraceptive mentality and exacerbates the problems of abortion, infanticide, murder, and euthanasia.

Barnhardt Podcast #052: The Melting of Modern Men from Meek to Mediocre

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we LOUDLY discuss a recent US Navy investigation which revealed that only 27 of 164 randomly selected, “qualified” officers could carry out their duties without any concerns. While we can guess at the causes for this it’s symptomatic of world-wide slide toward mediocrity and away from manly virtues, meekness being a big one. During this month of the Sacred Heart it would behoove His advice to “Learn of me, for I am meek and humble of heart!”
