    Easter

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H2%C3%A9ws%C5%8Ds Very misleading. The Indo-European pantheons almost all have a Dawn-Goddess with a name sounding similar to "Eos" who share fundamentally similar characteristics, including morning and fertility. It would seem unlikely that Bede got that out of...

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    I would have no problem of Western coverage of Nazi Pagans, I have a problem of ignoring them because they exist on both sides.

    Florida Bans Teaching Christian Marriage

    Just teasing ya dude. For me time is kicking up into the next stick-shift gear, the last three years feel like one year ago. I'm getting old too.

    You're old. But you do have decent taste in music.

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    Ever heard of a guy named Gandhi? He said something about two wrongs not making a right or something like that, I don't know, seems like wise stuff

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    While I agree with much of your analysis (not all), downplaying the institutional connection between the Soviet Union and Russia is a quite a bit off the mark. Putin was head of the KGB, and reminder: the Russian Orthodox Church to this day still refuses to condemn Patriarch Sergius - even in...

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    How does one fake videos like that? Talk about conspiracy-theory level burden shifting By the way, denying the Azov Batallion's existence is not very Jesus like imo.

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    In their defense, that has been the justification for decades. Pope Pius XII and Pope John Paul II already consecrated Russia. Many Catholics interpreted the latter consecration as causing the seemingly miraculous downfall of the Soviet Union. However, Trad Cats believe that both consecrations...

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    Sure, as have many kings, dictators, and politicians in the past on both sides of the schism. Doesn’t make my point any less valid. Again, I have no emotion or bias to either side of the conflict or Orthodox schism.

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    I'm not in a good spiritual position to give authoritative opinions, but as someone who was born and raised Catholic, went through a deep Orthodox phase and then Trad Cat phase and then back to Orthodox phase - this update has firmly killed, in my mind, the possibility of the Papacy being the...

    Question: how does Jay Dyer know so much about esoteric systems to talk about them? He must’ve looked into them to some extent.

    I’m not slandering anybody. Jay Dyer went through a phase of Neopaganism and still has some friends in those movements. I encourage you to watch the Dimond Brothers video on him. He clearly has knowledge to some extent given his discussion on such topics: As for “wiseguying”, I modified my post...

    Actually I’ll say one more thing - based on your tone, demeanor, form of apologia, you strike me Katechon as the kind of dude who listens to Jay Dyer. If you are of the belief that a person’s sins informs the validity of their discussions, I would thus inquire into Dyer’s background diligently...

    But maybe you’re right - I’ll step out of this conversation. Probably not my place to talk.

    Also, this response was incredibly juvenile and petty.

    I’m not “initiated”? And what does Eliphas Levi have to do with this? I also haven’t read any of Eliphas Levi’s works besides his commentary on the Book of Revelation. I did foolishly recommend it at one point because I thought it was insightful to the extent that he roots it in a cosmology...

    You’ve not only misinterpreted these books, but you’ve unintentionally but unironically made an argument these books are more “occult” than they actually are. You’re incorrect though. Gandalf and the Istari are allegorical angels. Tolkien was very Thomistic in crafting his cosmology - he made...

    Matthew 15:26

    It's parallelism to contrast the implied "children" who are fit for the "children's bread". One doesn't typically prepare nourishing meals like bread for puppies. Especially during that time period where animals were viewed more as assets than a hobby. Father and mother dogs also don't prepare...

    Old catholic mass now restricted (Traditiones Custodes)

    There's an even more fundamental point to this - if the doctrine and morality of the Church can contradict itself and change at the whim of whoever is in charge, and apparently has done so for centuries, then the Roman Catholic Church cannot, logically, claim to teach the same Gospel Christ taught.

    Interesting. I still wonder if there is some context we are lacking (for example, proscriptions against vegetarian pagan practices - Hindus, Buddhists, and even certain Zoroastrian sects all profess mandatory vegetarianism, and there would thus be a question about the intent behind the canon)...
