Media “Officially” and Wildly Exaggerates Participation at Gomorrist Parade

The Euro Pride 2019 as a fake news producer. The fatamorganisch inflated number of participants was passed on unchecked by the media.

"Every year, the mainstream media announce that the number of participants in the Rainbow Parade has risen again. This time was used to propose an absurd and unchecked fancy number of allegedly 500,000 participants. In fact, due to the enormous heat, the rainbow parade was much less visited than in recent years. Of course you can only estimate it, but if you calculate the footprint of the parade on the Ringstraße, then no more than possibly 20,000 people can really have participated - including all the onlookers.”

The online magazine Uzensoriert, June 17, 2019.

On Wikipedia you can also find the fancy number. 460,000-500,000 participants are claimed  and to reports from the two left media organs, ORF Online and the newspaper Standard are the sources claimed. The numbers of the Unzensiert will probably never be found there.

The left Standard was euphoric:

"Half million marches at Europride in Vienna."

And reported:

"Now it's official: More people than ever before participated in the 24th Rainbow Parade on Saturday. A spokeswoman told the APA that around 460,000 to 500,000 people have participated. This is a new record, which was already expected in the run-up. "


Since when is the number of participants of an organizer without cross-checking an "official" statement? The tendency to inflate the numbers is obvious, especially in the homo-spectacle, especially since the number of "up to 500,000 expected participants" was trumpeted in the media. The standard itself writes: "a new record, which was already expected in advance.” The organizers' statements to the APA and the media reports were nothing more than a self-fulfilling prediction. Otherwise one would have to admit that fewer participants than expected have come. Far less!

You should be able to count

Usually, the media keeps asking questions from the police, who have more experience in assessing the number of participants and, above all, are more sober. Finally, for security reasons, they must keep a realistic overview. This is precisely what the media, see Standard, did in the same reports concerning the number of participants in the march for the family held in the center of Vienna. Look at one.

The police could have given the APA a more realistic figure also for the Euro Pride, and that would have been much lower, indeed much lower, than that disseminated by the press agency. But the reputable media obviously only ask if it suits them.

Thus, the APA spread by the figure wondrously increased by the gay glasses imagination of the organizer. Serious journalism could do that better. Through the APA, the fatamorganically created a number of participants under the sweltering heat of that day reached all Austrian and international editors unchecked.

A prime example of how fake news arises. Sorry, "lead media" do not produce fake news, never, never. Word of honor!

Exorbitantly inflated attendance at international Gay Prides have been on the agenda for years. The organizers and their homophile media giant are almost obsessed with fantasy figures. In reality, a media hype is staged, which is supposed to generate psychological pressure on the public and, above all, politics in the unintended side effect. The consequences do not remain: Austria can "decorate" since 15 June with the dubious primacy of being the first country in which the head of state has spoken to the well-to-do audience. This primacy goes to the Green Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen. The 2016 also got through into office by the tiniest of margins. Even the gray-slick, Social Democrat former Federal President Heinz Fischer appeared with homosexual colors. Probably both of these first men of the republic, could even look themselves in the eyes in the mirror come evening.

The  gay lobby’s networking with Greens and SPÖ became obvious. Both parties were able to use the event for campaign advertising and add value through the exaggerated media attention. Or not - should a large part of the population, which is to be hoped, still have all of their marbles.

In Vienna, it was not until the SPÖ rally on 1 May that an unmasking "number range” was revealed.  The comrades fabulously reported 120,000 participants, but the police only 12,000 and delivered the evidence after a public hiccup. At that time, however, Herbert Kickl was still a Freedom Party Minister of the Interior. He probably would have made sure to let the air out of the balloon of the Euro Pride 2019, in rainbow parade Vienna.

Epidemic health hazard

The Gay Prides, Euro Prides and World Prides, however, are associated with quite different problems than chronic weakness in counting among Pride organizers and leading media journalists. Katholisches.info reported in 2017 on the hepatitis A epidemic after Europride 2016 in Amsterdam:

While competent authorities are right to minimize risks and prevent dangerous situations in order to protect public health, they look the other way around Gay Pride, even though they are the cause of epidemic health hazards. In 2017, NGO OsservatorioGender called for:

"In addition, for health concerns and for epidemic prevention, all Gay Prides planned in Europe should be canceled."

In view of the hyperbole of gay pride, it is not surprising that even the media does not address this question.

Nothing should disturb the great "fun" and total stupefaction that takes place under the blasphemous general motto "Love is Love". The pictures of the Rainbow Parade speak for themselves.

"Exorcist Course is Laughing Stock of Rome -- Only the Pope Takes This Stuff Seriously"

There is a "bad spirit" about Rome, according to Australian priest Father John Corrigan.
(Rome) Every year a course for the training of exorcists takes place in Rome. It is relatively strongly emphasized, unlike other events in the media. The 2019 XIV. Course was held from the 6th to11th of May.
An Australian priest John Corrigan reported on his blog on May 25 on the course in which he participated.
Exorcist Course 2019
First, Father Corrigan anticipated that the conference itself was "excellent," but that he felt a "hatred" for Rome. He loves the history, the wonderful churches and also the food. At the same time, however, he perceives a depressing spirit that lies above Rome, which was also noticeable in his most recent stay in "two unfortunate incidents".
The first "incident" reported by Father Corrigan is to be reproduced here:
"Item 1: A cardinal was invited to speak at our conference. For 15 minutes, he spoke about the reality of the devil, and the gravity of spiritual warfare, and the importance of prayer and fasting. The content, in fact, was quite good. The speaker however . . . This cardinal is notorious for his sordid double life. It’s alleged that Vatican Police once caught him at a drug-fuelled orgy, but he was whisked away before Italian Police were called — because he’s a cardinal. I asked one of the Aussie priests in Rome why this guy was invited to speak at the conference. His answer dismayed me: “You have to understand, this exorcism course is the laughing stock of Rome. The pope takes this stuff seriously, but many others don’t. Having a cardinal lends the conference respectability — and any cardinal will do. Bella figura!
Father Corrigan was appalled by his countryman's cynical answer. You can feel it. Above all, the question arises as to what resistance the exorcist training is subjected to within the Church. Anyone who sent the said cardinal to give the convention a touch of glamor and prestige obviously did not like it well.
The case of the cardinal mentioned is well known. But because the priest does not name his blog, we do not want to do it, but link to a possible "trail." And add that this is not Ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

Ted Cruz collaborating with Ocasio Cortez to make contraceptives available over the counter

By David Martin

The news broke last week that Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is now collaborating with Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to try to make contraceptives available over the counter. Ted Cruz asks Ocasio-Cortez to join him in making birth control available over-the-counter

Responding to a tweet in which the radical freshman Democrat declared that "birth control should be over-the-counter," Cruz agreed, saying that they should "team up" on that.

"I agree. Perhaps, in addition to the legislation we are already working on together to ban Members of Congress from becoming lobbyists, we can team up here as well. A simple, clean bill making birth control available over the counter. Interested?"

Two crimes are committed here. First he is promoting contraception, i.e. birth control pills, abortifacients, etc., and in such a way as to give people easy access to it. But too, he is supporting the radical socialist Ocasio-Cortez, which is like supporting George Soros. Cruz's "Un-American" activities are clearly manifest.

We’ve all heard how Rafael Cruz, the father of Ted Cruz "fled" communist oppression in Cuba to seek "asylum" in the United States, when in fact Rafael was sent to the U.S. by Castro to assist in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBucJt9T9tA  And why? Because Kennedy had exposed the conspiratorial doings of the CFR and was in the process of placing this private interest group under U.S. jurisdiction, which the communists resented.

And of course, Ted's wife Heidi is a former CFR member and VIP who co-authored the infamous blueprint for the North American Union, entitled, Building a North American Community, which outlines the internationalist plan for dissolving America’s sovereignty—something that Communists have eagerly awaited since the time of Lenin. 

Contraception is not part of our Christian American heritage but is of the Communist world and is what Communists brought to our country, so when we see American "conservatives" pushing contraception it should immediately send up a red flag.

So much for Ted Cruz being a pro-life patriot.

His Satanic Majesty

Edit: another thing that Malachi Martin was right about. I’m wondering, did it really take this long for  Andrew Greeley’s Dead man’s switch to get turned on, or is this from another source? I expect many of the powerful men Greeley claims to have identified as sexual predators are dead.

Meanwhile, what of characters like Bishop Robert Baron who drew so much support and inspiration from Bernardin?

Gay Pride Month: Basilian Plagiarist and Homophile Fired

Basilian Priest and Vatican advisor Thomas Rosica now also had to resign as CEO of "Salt + Light" due to his plagiarism affair - putting the Vatican under pressure to remove the scandal pater as a media consultant

Edit: more vindication for Vox Cantoris.
Toronto (kath.net) Vatican advisor Father Thomas Rosica (photo) now faces further, grave consequences from his plagiarism scandal. After a few weeks ago, the Canadian Salt + Light website has already removed more than 1,000 articles and contributions from Rosica, and the controversial Basilian priest has now resigned as CEO of the media group.

Previously, the Canadian newspaper "The Globe and Mail" had already announced that in the future Rosica's posts would no longer be published because the priest did not meet the standards of the newspaper. Also numerous other media had to delete quite a few posts from Rosica.

With the resignation as CEO of the Salt Light Media Group, the pressure on the Vatican to remove Rosica as official media consultant is likely to increase.

Maronite Cardinal Warns Against Abolishing Celibacy

Edit: this Cardinal expressed these views in 2012. His comments only appeared on kreuz.net back before it got shut down by the secret police for criticizing sodomites and saying that a celebrated German comedian, a kind of Benny Hill, was boiling in rotten sewage for eternity. As far as we know, the webmaster, whose identity was discovered a few years ago after a nationwide manhunt, is still at liberty, but we haven’t heard.

Philippe Cardinal Barbarin

Of all things the Greek-Catholic Bishops, whose clergy is married,  have warned against abolishing celibacy.

(kreuz.net) On the 27th of Septemer Philippe Cardinal Barbarin of Lyon at the French magazine 'Paris Match' commented on the slow burning media issue of "celibacy".

"Don't squander this treasure"

The Cardinal recalled that Pope Benedict XVI had addressed this already in the first Bishops' Synod.

It was then that the former Maronite Patriarch Nasrallah Cardinal Sfeir (92) spoke especially caustically about the abolishing of celibacy.

"Even with us, the Maronites, priests may marry"  -- explained the Cardinal:  "During the war in Lebanon, all of the married priests left with their wives and children."

No one blamed them for that: "Actually, the only ones remaining behind, were those who were married to their communities."

He continued: "Don't squander this gift".

"What do you want me to tell you?"

'Paris Match'  grasped desperately in the air, suggesting that supposedly twenty percent of the clergy live with a woman.

"A High statistic" -- cried Cardinal Barbarin:  "That is, as we would say, that thirty percent of husbands   betray their wives."

"What do you want me to tell you?" -- was the Cardinal's pugnacious reaction.

It would be natural to desire that people who are married are faithful:  "Even the Republic wants that."

Cardinal Barbarin recalled then that even civil servants officiating civil marriages in the mayor's office use the words "respect" and "faithfulness".

Episcopal Secretary “Likes” Gay Pride

The revolutionary aspect of homosexuality with its persification of the concept of love: "Love changes history" and the blasphemy it contains, because "Deus caritas est": Love is a person.

(Rome) Homo-confusion prevails not only in some dioceses of the German-speaking world, but also in Italy.

For almost half a century, the Archdiocese of Genoa was the diocese of Cardinal Giuseppe Siri and was regarded as a refuge of a traditional understanding of the Church and of faith and theology. Auxiliary Bishop and Vicar General Nicolò Anselmi, whom Pope Francis put down there in 2015, see things differently today. It had already participated in a gay event and has now imposed a ban on an atonement for insulting God through gay pride in the city. Such a prayer was "not desired" by the current Archbishop, Angelo Cardinal Bagnasco. He has not yet commented himself on the issue.

The approach of the auxiliary bishop and vicar general is not a slip-up. The head of the archiepiscopal press service, Msgr. Silvio Grilli, stated when asked, that as a Catholic, one could agree with the contents of Gay Pride. An atonement prayer in the church, on the other hand, conveys the impression of a "condemnation".

La Repubblica, the only daily newspaper Pope Francis reads on a daily basis, said he had read it (although the statement was later turned to the less leftist daily Il Messaggero). Msgr. Grilli gave an answer to what is today seen as positive and negative by the ecclesiastical authorities.

The traditional website Messa in Latino countered:

"Prayer is never condemnation, but reparation. Gay pride and similar events regularly include blasphemous slogans and actions, as well as unrepeatable vulgarity and attacks on Jesus, Mary, and the Church. "

But the ecclesiastical authority does not seem to be really moving, with a few exceptions. The majority ducks away and is silent. A homophile minority in the Church actively seeks to join the homosexual movement and the applause of the Zeitgeist.

Examples can be found not only in Genoa, but also in Vicenza, the home bishop of Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin. Bishop Beniamino Pizziol was founded by Pope Benedict XVI. first as Auxiliary Bishop of Venice, then appointed Bishop of Vicenza in 2011. To express gratitude and sumpathy, he took Deus Caritas est for motto, a central statement of the pontificate of Benedict XVI.

But Benedict renounced the Petrine ministry and now Francis rules in Rome. Msgr. Pizziol explained in the run-up to the Gay Pride, which flooded cities in Western Europe last Saturday: "Jesus invites us not to judge.”

The bishop's secretary, Don Marco Gasparini, went one step further and gave the Facebook page of Gay Pride in Vicenza a "like” on his FB page. After the homophile action was revealed, a denial was made. Don Gasparini told Messa in Latino that he is not the only one using his Facebook account and expressly dissociates himself from the positive rating of Gay Pride. He had caused the deletion of the "likes" on Facebook.

The distancing does not really convince because the Facebook account is under the first and surname of the Secretary. Nevertheless, it is important. The Gay Prides of 2019 show that homo-heresy, as Dariusz Oko calls it, spreads at many levels in the Church, promoted by inner-Church cliques and the social climate.

Cardinal Ravasi Hypocrotically Attacks Salvini for Empty Gestures — He Forgets His Own Fabulous Gestures

Remember When?

Edit: this is part of the reason why growing numbers of Italian Catholics are ignoring the Church which has been all too willing to act against the best interests of the laity for the benefit of its evil masters. Banon’s own exhortation to the laity must also be noted.  From Mesa in Latino:

[Mesa in Latino] But couldn't these prelates take more care of the empty churches, the empty seminaries, the dead children killed in mothers' womb, instead of taking care of Salvini?

Andra Zambrano, also happily HERE  reminds him of the organization of the gala at the MET in New York with thePope  Rihanna and side by side with John Paul II's casules mixed with leather caps for bondage (on the disgusting story see MiL HERE.  But, as we know, as Merlin said in the film Excalibur, man's trouble is that he forgets.


Sunday 16 June 11:00 - by Carlo Marini,  Il Seculo d’Italia

Also Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, the Vatican "Minister of Culture", stands against Matteo Salvini. «Faith is an existential experience, a radical choice. Religion is the outward manifestation. Shaking the Gospel, showing off the rosary, kissing the crucifix does not necessarily make you a believer ». Thus, in an interview with Corriere della Sera, Cardinal Ravasi, theologian and biblicist and president of the Pontifical Council for Culture.

"Christ condemns those who make external gestures"

In particular, to the reporter's question as to whether theMinister  Matteo Salvini with his recent behavior was wrong or not, Ravasi replied: "These are signs that in themselves do not represent the authenticity of belief. Christ condemns those who take the first places in the synagogue, those who parade the phylacteries, the parchments with the verses of the Torah. Christ forgives all sins, but cannot bear hypocrisy. Self-salvation does not exist. One is not saved by outward manifestations, but by profound adherence to moral and existential choices. It is not the ritual gesture that saves. The sacrament is "opus operatum", an objective act marked by the divine presence, but also "opus operantis", a subjective act, a vital and moral choice. Otherwise it is magic ritual. Magic.”


Even Succesor of Siri Fears the Rage of the Lavender Mafia

The Rosary Prayer Initiative for Italy wanted to invite Genoese to the solemn prayer for the Gay Pride in three churches, but the Archdiocese said it was undesirable

(Rome) The "Gay Month" June shows who wants and supports aberrosexualization. First and foremost are the politicians who channel public space into the tax box of the homo-agenda. The majority of Catholics react apathetically, because what the mass media suggests to them is in open contradiction to the teaching of the Church. But they are largely abandoned by the ecclesiastical hierarchy.

The voice of the Church is barely audible, because many diocesan bishops follow the papal model, and that means: no confrontation with the spirit of the times. From this and from the "delicate" treatment of homo-heresy (Dariusz Oko) in the Church, the overall impression of a latent paradigm shift in moral teaching emerges. Groups of devout Catholics, however, organize themselves here and there and call for atonement for the Gay Prides, which are an open recourse to dark paganism. But that bothers the official course of the Church, even in Genoa.

The archdiocese of the Ligurian capital is still associated with the name of Giuseppe Cardinal Siri. But whoever feeds on mere heritage will eventually need it. The Archbishop of Genoa is none other than Angelo Cardinal Bagnasco, who under Pope Benedict XVI. was President of the Italian Episcopal Conference until Pope Francis replaced him by a a churchman much closer to him.

Nevertheless, Bagnasco endeavors to please the incumbent Pope, which reinforces the existing weaknesses of his administration.

Also in Genoa, devout Catholics organized and called for a prayer vigil to make atonement for the abominations and outrages of the homosexual spectacle in the city. Only a partial aspect of the negative balance is that the cases of transmissible sexually transmitted diseases skyrocket in the wake of  the disgusting Homo-Carnival. Above all, homosexuality is one of the blatant sins.

However, the archbishop's ordinariate sent a message to the Vicar General saying that the prayer initiative was not welcome:

"His Eminence wishes that the prayer vigil in his church be canceled."

No confrontation with the world, no audible voice of the Church, no affirmation of the Church's moral teaching. Nothing should disturb the "peace". This is what Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio had already said in Argentina in 2010, when he was a primate there and the believers turned to him in their desire to start action against the legalization of "gay marriage" but were sent home by the archbishop.

The traditional website Messa in Latino asks Cardinal Bagnasco a short but urgent question:


Although Cardinal Bagnasco lost his influence in the Italian Episcopate through the change of the papal throne, he is still acting successor to Cardinal Siri and since October 2016  andalso President of the Council of European Bishops' Conferences CCEE (not to be confused with the Commission of the Episcopal Conferences of the European Community COMECE which includes only the episcopal conferences of the EU).

The organizers of the prayer initiative "Rosary for Italy", set up by their archbishop, had to cancel the announced prayer vigils as planned. Yesterday they announced via the press agency ANSA:

"We are sorry to announce that the Curial Archbishop of Genoa has instructed the responsible priests of the churches listed below to cancel the planned prayer vigils for public atonement. We therefore invite the interested believers to pray elsewhere - in spiritual fellowship. "

But it is also different, as the diocese of Trieste under the leadership of courageous Archbishop Giampaolo Crepaldi shows. The Press Office of the diocese announced:

"Because of some public statements that insult and discriminate against the Christian faith and that were unfortunately made in the Gay Pride, which took place in Trieste a few days ago, on June 13 from 8.30 pm an atonement will take place in the Marian Shrine on Monte Grisa. "

13 New Priests for SSPX in Northern Hemisphere

On June 8, three deacons were consecrated in Zaitzkofen for the Society. The ordination takes place at the end of June.

(Berne) The seminaries of the fraternity of St. Pius X (FSSPX) in the northern hemisphere end their academic year in the month of June, the Month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. At the end of the academic year, ordination is traditionally held around the 29th of June, the feast of apostolic princes Peter and Paul. The Society will receive thirteen new priests in a few days.

Founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, the Society maintains three seminaries in the northern hemisphere, one each with a German, French and English language of instruction. There are two more seminaries in the southern hemisphere, one in Argentina with Spanish and one in Australia with English as the language of instruction. Diaconal and priestly ordinations take place there just before Christmas: at the Holy Cross Seminary in Australia on 19 December and at the seminary of Our Lady Coroner in Argentina on 21 December 2019.

In the United States, Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta will be consecrating five new priests - all Americans - on June 21 at the St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Dillwyn, Virginia.

In Switzerland, Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais will hand over six priests — four Frenchmen, one Englishman and one Italian - in the seminary of St. Pius X in Ecône on 28 June.

Finally, Bishop Bernard Fellay will consecrate two candidates for new priests - a German and a Pole - on Sunday, June 30, in the Bavarian Seminary of the Sacred Heart of Jesus  in Zaitzkofen.

All ordinations are open to the public. The seminaries explicitly invite the faithful to participate in the Holy Mass and to receive the blessing of the new priests.

Already on June 8, the Pentecost Vigil, Bishop Fellay had consecrated three new deacons in Zaitzkofen - a Pole, an Austrian and a German. In Switzerland, the diaconal ordination takes place at the same time as the priestly ordination, whereas in the USA it took place in April.

Regarding the consecrations Rector in Zaitzkofen, P. Franz Schmidberger emphasized on this occasion that:

"In this way, the Church will be renewed step by step in the German-speaking countries and in the countries of Eastern Europe, even if the work takes more time than one would wish."

P. Schmidberger was the first successor of Archbishop Lefebvre as Superior General of the Society of Saint Pius X. He was followed by Bishop Bernard Fellay, who headed the Society for 24 years. In July 2018 he was replaced by P. Davide Pagliarini.

First Mass at Notre Dame Since Fire Celebrated Ad Orientem

Notre-Dame de Paris: view through the ruined vaulted ceiling.

(Paris) On Saturday, the first Mass was celebrated in the ruined cathedral Notre Dame de Paris since the devastating fire of last April 15th. The celebrant was Archbishop Michel Aupetit of Paris, who celebrated it ad orientem (facing east).

Protected by helmets, the Archbishop and about 30 people entered the episcopal church of Paris, which together with the Eiffel Tower, is considered the most famous landmark of France, in contrast to this not only is it much older, but it also has a much deeper cultural and spiritual significance.

"The fire that destroyed the building on April 15 sparked a wave of emotions, not just among the faithful," said Archbishop Aupetit.

Secured statue of Mary in Notre-Dame.

With him, the church rector, Msgr. Patrick Chauvet, canons, volunteers, diocesan staff and construction workers came to the cathedral, who took a break from working to stabilize the roofless masonry. In total, there were about 30 people attending the Mass.

For security reasons, access was not allowed to other believers. The Catholic TV station KTO transmitted the celebration directly. It took place on the dedication day of the altar of the cathedral, a "highly spiritual" date, says Msgr. Chauvet.

The celebration took place in the Mary chapel in the outer ambulatory of the sanctuary, where the crown of thorns was kept until the fire. It had been rescued from the flames by the brave chaplain of the Paris Fire Department, Jean-Marc Fournier, a priest close to tradition, along with the Most Blessed Sacrament.

Since the devastating fire, the cause of which remains unclear, between 60 and 150 workers work to secure the cathedral. Even while the cathedral was in flames, French President Emmanuel Macron announced that it would be rebuilt within five years. For now, we are working feverishly on securing the stock. It should first and foremost be started with the planning of the reconstruction. The French Senate, the upper house of legislation, recently voted in favor of the faithful reconstruction, rejecting architectural experiments or misappropriation.

Of the 850 million euros in donations promised in the course of the fire, only nine percent have been paid.

Archbishop Aupetit at the celebration in the Mary chapel.

The media reports hardly mention it, but the KTO transmission shows that Archbishop Aupetit celebrated ad
orientem in the reliquary chapel in the Novus Ordo. The reason: there is no people’s altar in the Mary chapel. [Isn’t ironic that the Cramner table of the NO was something imposed on the people?] 

Cardinal Robert Sarah, the Prefect of the Roman Congregation for the Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, has been recommending to all priests since 2016 to rediscover and resume this celebration, which was common until the liturgical reform of 1969/1970.
