    Default Cops interrupt Mass

    Police show up at a mass in Italy, interrupting the consecration, telling the priest he needs to stop and send home the 12 parishioners widely spaced throughout the church.

    The priest refuses.

    Cop steps in at :30. Priest tells him basically to get lost.
    And then again at 2:00. Priest again refuses to comply and tells the cop that he'll pay the fine and to step away.

    my Italian is pretty good but not good enough to get the whole conversation (damn dialects). But based on what I'm getting, the priest knew the cop was there the whole time and basically was like "you wanna fine me for having 12 people spaced out in this church, go ahead". No court in Italy will ever hold that fine up. No idea why the cop did that. If that's a church full of people, fine.

    Archbishop Vigano writes to President Trump on the spiritual forces at work in the US riots

    By Carlo Vigano - June 7, 2020

    Published 4 hours ago
    Rome archbishop urges Trump to fight ‘deep state’ amid criticism over protests, coronavirus




    A Catholic archbishop said the "deep state" is "fiercely waging war against" President Trump amid the coronavirus pandemic and riots following the death of George Floyd.

    Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano of Rome urged Trump on Sunday to fight against the so-called "deep state," mainstream media, and the "deep church" in an open letter shared by LifeSiteNews.


    "In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness," Vigamo writes, adding that the deep state has "decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans."

    He believes investigations will bring to light mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis as well as what was behind the riots in several cities across the nation after Floyd died while in police custody on Memorial Day.

    The former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States slammed Washington, D.C.'s Archbishop Wilton Gregory, who claimed Trump "egregiously misused and manipulated" the Saint John Paul II National Shrine by visiting it last week before signing an international religious liberty order. Trump was criticized for holding up a Bible at St. John's Church after part of it was burned during a protest. Critics claim Trump used tear gas to clear protesters but officials, including Trump, deny it.


    Vigamo said Gregory and other religious leaders aligned with him "are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches."


    Gregory has reportedly called on his priests to dress in black and protest Trump at 11 a.m. Monday morning in Lafayette Park.

    Vigano said attacks on Trump for visiting the shrine are "part of the orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction."


    He praised Trump for his actions as president.

    "For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship," Vigano wrote, adding, "And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons."

    Vigano believes Americans "are mature and have now understood how much the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters."


    The majority of good people must wake up, "come together and make their voices heard," he said, adding that the most "effective" way is through prayer.

    Vigano offered to pray for Trump and first lady Melania Trump, and the nation as a whole.

    Full text of letter


    June 7, 2020

    Holy Trinity Sunday

    Mr. President,

    In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two
    opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children
    of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of
    humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And
    yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a
    situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold
    strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media.
    In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and
    by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness.


    These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear
    separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent.
    On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and
    weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a
    family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the
    needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven.
    On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any
    moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit
    workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and
    wars, and accumulate power and money: for them the fallacious illusion of
    temporal well-being will one day – if they do not repent – yield to the terrible
    fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation.

    In society, Mr. President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal
    enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the
    children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state which
    you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days
    – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans.
    They seem to be so certain of already having everything under control that they
    have laid aside that circumspection that until now had at least partially
    concealed their true intentions. The investigations already under way will reveal
    the true responsibility of those who managed the Covid emergency not only in
    the area of health care but also in politics, the economy, and the media. We will
    probably find that in this colossal operation of social engineering there are
    people who have decided the fate of humanity, arrogating to themselves the
    right to act against the will of citizens and their representatives in the
    governments of nations.


    We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those
    who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the
    pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances,
    because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could
    be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same
    thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the
    use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to
    see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the
    goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with
    conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that
    hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to
    profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without
    freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches.


    Although it may seem disconcerting, the opposing alignments I have
    described are also found in religious circles. There are faithful Shepherds who
    care for the flock of Christ, but there are also mercenary infidels who seek to
    scatter the flock and hand the sheep over to be devoured by ravenous wolves. It
    is not surprising that these mercenaries are allies of the children of darkness and
    hate the children of light: just as there is a deep state, there is also a deep church
    that betrays its duties and forswears its proper commitments before God. Thus
    the Invisible Enemy, whom good rulers fight against in public affairs, is also
    fought against by good shepherds in the ecclesiastical sphere. It is a spiritual
    battle, which I spoke about in my recent Appeal which was published on May
    8.


    For the first time, the United States has in you a President who
    courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the
    persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and
    the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for
    Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National
    Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to
    fight on. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle,
    albeit with different weapons.


    For this reason, I believe that the attack to which you were subjected
    after your visit to the National Shrine of Saint John Paul II is part of the
    orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social
    order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize
    violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction. And
    it is disconcerting that there are Bishops – such as those whom I recently
    denounced – who, by their words, prove that they are aligned on the opposing
    side. They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to
    the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a
    universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes
    the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of
    the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.


    The American people are mature and have now understood how much
    the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and
    distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters.
    However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from
    their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest
    people with unavowable purposes. It is necessary that the good, the children of
    light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is
    there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you,
    the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy?
    Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will
    collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their
    frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it
    is: an infernal deception.

    Mr. President, my prayer is constantly turned to the beloved American
    nation, where I had the privilege and honor of being sent by Pope Benedict XVI
    as Apostolic Nuncio. In this dramatic and decisive hour for all of humanity, I
    am praying for you and also for all those who are at your side in the government
    of the United States. I trust that the American people are united with me and
    you in prayer to Almighty God.

    United against the Invisible Enemy of all humanity, I bless you and the
    First Lady, the beloved American nation, and all men and women of good will.

    As to the destruction, mayhem and murder ensuing from the riots, he refers to the Masonic adage Solve et Coagula ("dissolve and coagulate" in Latin), which also appears inscribed on the arms of images of the satanic idol Baphomet.

    There is so much more than politics in that letter.

    There is but it's not a coincidence that this this is the same Bishop who had such an issue with the Pope. The Vatican has its political cliques as well.

    The Vatican absolutely does, but I feel that this letter should not be disregarded.

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    The Archbishop is fooling himself if he thinks Trump is going to read all of that.

    Can one not have an issue with the Pope? Are we not allowed to dissent?
