The following comes from a Feb. 13 story published by the Associated Press.
With a click of a cursor, Jay Brown in Cheverly, Md., went from Male to Trans Male. A few states away, Debon Garrigues of Asheville, N.C., switched from Male to Neutral. In San Francisco, Marilyn Roxie, formerly Female, chose three: Androgynous, Transgender and Genderqueer.
Across the country Thursday, news swept through the transgender community that social media giant Facebook had added a customizable option with about 50 different terms people can use to identify their gender as well as three preferred pronoun choices: him, her or them. And one after another, they made their changes in a quiet revolution of sorts.
“For me, this is about much more than a button on a monitor,” Garrigues said. “This encourages people to think outside the binary spectrum. It means I don’t have to try to fit in the wrong boxes.”
For many others, the change went unnoticed – or too far.
“Of course Facebook is entitled to manage its wildly popular site as it sees fit, but here is the bottom line: It’s impossible to deny the biological reality that humanity is divided into two halves – male and female,” said Jeff Johnston, an issues analyst for Focus on the Family, an influential national religious organization based in Colorado Springs, Colo. “Those petitioning for the change insist that there are an infinite number of genders, but just saying it doesn’t make it so. That said, we have a great deal of compassion for those who reject their biological sex and believe they are the opposite sex.”
Facebook said the changes, shared with The Associated Press before the launch, initially cover the company’s 159 million monthly users in the U.S. and are aimed at giving people more choices in how they describe themselves, such as androgynous, bi-gender, intersex, gender fluid or transsexual.
“There’s going to be a lot of people for whom this is going to mean nothing, but for the few it does impact, it means the world,” said Facebook software engineer Brielle Harrison, who worked on the project and is herself undergoing gender transformation, from male to female. On Thursday, while watchdogging the software for any problems, she said she was also changing her Facebook identity from Female to TransWoman.

“A Brief History of Sex Ed: How We Reached Today’s Madness
by Miriam Grossman
Today’s sex ed curricula are based on the widely-accepted teachings of depraved human beings.
Once upon a time, sex education was a simple biology lesson. Students learned the facts of life, and, with those facts, that sex is part of something bigger, called marriage. Teachers explained that this was the moral and healthy way to live.
In those days, people understood that men and women are different, and that their union is unique, unlike any other relationship. It went without saying that boys grew up to become men, and girls, women.
– See more at: https://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2013/07/10408/#sthash.qW54mN6h.dpuf
The Focus on the Family quote must be intentionally feigning ignorance, as it’s fairly common knowledge that there is a distinction between sex (biology) and gender (culture and identity).
It’s amazing that Facebook took so long to do this. It’s been a glaring omission for years, and it’s not like Facebook has a corporate culture that would care about normative definitions of gender. Also, kind of interesting that there are now 50 or so, but it’s still structured as a list where you need to choose one of their definitions, and not just enter your own.
I feel so sorry for people who need a choice of 50 different words to say what they think they are, at least for today; tomorrow the person may choose a different description. They have serious psychological problems that must make their daily existence confusing and painful. It is probably difficult for them to hold down a job and have “normal” relationships with members of their families. They need out prayers and compassion. Did this thinking begin in the 1950s, when women began to question their freedom, and men wondered where they fit in their relationship with women? Did it begin with the “me generation?” I don’t know. It seems that all of the 50 gender descriptions have to do with sexual activity. A human being is complex and consists of countless components, not just sexuality. For those of us blessed by God to have a religious faith, life is far simpler, and the basic program can be found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. That is not to say that we don’t have problems from time to time, but thanks be to God, nothing like that.
It’s like a marketing scheme, Sarah. Satan is just diversifying to gain a greater market share. You know, like General Mills deciding they want to increase profits. How to do it when most are opting for eggs and toast?? Cereal is kinda boring. So they come up with a massive ad campaign where different cereals compete, no holds barred, with one another. Lines are drawn. Groups are defined. Oats, versus, bran, versus buckwheat. Make the public ‘feel’ they must choose or else they’re doing themselves a grave disservice.
Thing is, whichever cereal they pick, the dollars go into the same coffer as there is only General Mills at the bottom line. That’s a simple analogy, but one I see increasingly represented as the mainstream opts for eggs and toast while feeling strangely left out of all the hubbub.
Thank God for God and common sense.
Ann, it is kind of ironic that you used General Mills for your analogy. Did you realize that there has been a boycott against General Mills for about a year now as they are granting moneys to support queer “marriage”?
Ironic is the word, Tracy. I had no idea. Doesn’t surprise me though as those intent on making money are usually intent on appeasing those with money in order to sell more product. And all of these lovely donations are tax deductable. So we’re still paying for it in a way… although the boycott is warranted.
As to the query about when all this questioning started, Sarah, methinks it begins when folks have too much time on their hands instead of having to keep busy in order to survive. It’s that hard stop with survival that, in my opinion, has Putin embracing religion now.
He may still be a thug. He may still use thug tactics. But he is, for whatever reason, seeing the benefit of natural law. Even if that ‘benefit’ is motivated by stabilizing his power base by drawing on the religious sensibilities of the people.
It’s not all a marketing scheme.
There are truly intersex people. There are multiple conditions what we know exist in which sexual identity will inevitably be an issue because of mixed genetics.
Now, the most typical cases in which someone feels “trapped” in the wrong body usually can’t be traced to a genetic or physiologic basis. Yet, I think its pretty arrogant to exclude the possibility that some of these cases might be due to, as yet, undiscovered physiological causes. Not all of these people are “warped by Satan”.
The blunt fact is, in the case of say, someone who is a genetic mosaic, or various forms of inter-sexuality, these conditions were completely unknown 250 years ago. By vindictively applying Levitcus—or even St. Paul, many would have erroneously condemned them for apparent homosexual behavior.
At the same time, many pursue odd sexuality for what seems to be pursuit of hedonist pleasure, without regard for the impact of these practices on others.
I think we need to keep in mind that even someone who suffers from this issue from what are primarily hedonistic or psychological reasons must be in considerable distress. I think we need to keep that in mind while dealing with them—especially if they are not attempting to harm others.
That’s why we should keep the snickering, and ridicule to a minimum and remind ourselves to treat them with dignity. I’m also very leery of categorically attributing their problems to Satanic influences. That’s just another way to excuse the impulse toward contempt.
I know what your mean, Anne Malley. I eat eggs, turkey bacon and toast or tortillas with tarty jam or salsa most every morning of my life, and do not have high cholesterol nor high blood pressure. When I look at the cereal section in a store, I am bewildered and long for the day when there were only three or four different kinds. The only cereal I like is the natural stuff with honey, but it seems all of them just have to put in the brown sugar and make them way too sweet, so I ignore that section. Can’t they just make one natural cereal without the sugar in it?
The Me Generation? Not really. Gender variance is as old as our species, and like anything, has existed in roughly the same proportion but widely varying levels of social acceptance, depending on the culture in which it exists.
Here’s a Western-centric Trans history dating to 222 (but mostly the past two centuries)
… and more anthropological take on it…
Don’t even have to get that heady, unless you want to! Ever seen the gender role twists on Beverly Hillbillies? or studied the life of St. Joan of Arc?
… or if you like Shakespeare … As You Like It, The Merchant of Venice, The Taming of the Shrew, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Merry Wives of Windsor, Twelfth Night, Cymbeline, and Hamlet.
Good point, Siollan. Times change, but people don’t. These issues have been with us since the beginning. It’s just the cognitive behavioral approach of ‘changing the thinking’ that is new. That is the wholesale, modern approach of ascribing Divine Revelation as simply man made and therefore worthy of being tossed out by majority vote.
St. Joan of Arc was not a cross dresser. She always wore the clothing of the women of her station and time. She only wore male armor to protect herself in battle and from rape.
St. Wilgefortis (Feast day July 20th) was a beautiful maiden and vowed virgin who was being forced by her father to marry a local suitor. She prayed to God to escape this proposed marriage, and she woke up the next day with a full beard and mustache. The suitor immediately withdrew his proposal.
Her religious faith was a directly related to her fluid gender identity!
Anyone with a working brain and a solid Christian Faith will remove herself or himself from Facebook. The rest of the members of the Asylum can stay. Yes we must pray that this insanity stop but going along with the depravity is not an option..
I think that this new concept is very tragically destructive to our society, and to the very people it is intended to help! These people have tremendous psychological problems! Yet– I think it hurts them even more, to confuse everyone, as to their “genders!” When you meet a person, how do you see them?? Must it all be so CONFUSING?? And potentially DEMEANING?? Plus, it marks these people as definitely “abnormal” — and causes them to be marked with a painful stigma, to choose a strange label, between fifty gender identities!! Why can’t people simply accept a normal definition of either being biologically “male” or “female,” act like adults, with pride in themselves– and keep the rest of their lives, and feelings– to themselves, privately?? WHY NOT?? One’s problems and struggles are very personal, not something to be shared publically! When you meet someone, you must have good manners, greet the other person properly, and hope all will be well! You do not want to be put into a sudden, unexpected, terrible and embarrassing position, of the other person unintentionally being demeaned and ridiculed!! Also, in a class at a school, or in a job situation– same thing! “Hello, Mr. Smith, I’m Miss Green. Would you like to open a new bank account with us?” Or, “Hello, I’m John Smith, and I’m the new English teacher at the high school.” One must act respectfully, courteously, and maturely! Expect to be treated well, and treat others well! Keep the rest to yourself!! It’s your personal and private business!
God made them MALE and FEMALE. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ quoted these words from the Bible. He spoke them, and they ARE the truth. No matter what the crack pots preach, God’s words are truth and reality. After all, He created us, and He knows what He created.
Fr. Karl yes, “God made them MALE and FEMALE.” Of course, we both know that anything that God has made is hated by Satan. Satan attempts to destroy EVERYTHING that God finds good.
We Father Karl, what about people who are genetic mosaics? These are people where if you put their cells under a microscope, some cells are XX and some are XY.
Are they just figments of our imagination? Or, quite literally, they were made male AND female.
The condition is rare, but you can’t pretend they don’t exist. What are they supposed to do, put a bullet in their own brain? Are they supposed to flagellate themselves for their entire lives because of their unworthiness? Should they stay quiet and suffer in silence just so everyone else can pretend they don’t exist? Is that the duty they owe to God and the rest of society?
Or maybe that passage simply applies to people who are clearly male and female, whereas the passages that apply to the intersexed are the ones that deal with “born eunuchs”. Some of these people, however, can be treated. I’m not talking about the clearly genetically congruent individuals who seek a “sex change”. I’m talking about people like Erik Schineggar.
Schineggar was an intersexed individual who won olympics medals while competing as a female skier for Austria in the 60’s. Later he discovered that he was inter-sexed, with functioning testes that had not descended and had the physiological appearance of a female. After treatment, Schineggar got married and fathered children. Yet, to the great shame of our culture, Austria was so ashamed of him that they refused to let him compete on the Austrian national ski team as a male—and drove him out of the sport.
Yes, Father Karl, we are all male and female, other than the innocents who were born with ambiguous organs, and all the other confused people are “in transition”, and it seems perpetual as some can never quite make up their minds as to what they are. It seems they could save a whole lot of their billions, and many homosexuals and probably lesbians are billionaires, by just putting down “male, female and those in transition. Better that the money be spent on the truly poor, and talk about environmental waste and wasted energy! need I go into that.
Any of my Facebook friends who choose anything but male or female will be defriended immediately. No patience for stupidity today.
It is all about SIN, and not doing God’s will but our own wills.
Gen 1:27 – ” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”
1) When was the last time you read a Catholic BIBLE ( has an imprimatur and nihil obstat on the copyright page) in entirty?
2) When was the last time your read the “CATECHISM of the CATHOLIC CHURCH, Second Edition”?
3) When was the last time you encouraged others to do so?
4) Have you made money, tv, computers, androids, and other electronic devices your false gods? How much time do you give to God each day compared to these other things?
Mt 7:13-24 “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”
Confusion comes from the devil!
Confusion is the devil’s tool, but is perpetuated by evil persons.
God gave us all free will. We are all responsible for our own actions.
Whatever happened to the scientists?
The Scam of Distraction and Ms.Direction behind the ’50 flavors of gender” is to focus on those with GID (gender identity disorder) in a sympathetic manner – ignoring the Political Thought Policing Pogrom behind it.
So Very Many people turn a blind eye to such Evil, lest they feel forced to take a stand almost certain to result in retaliation.
Consider the Female (XX) Swim Coach who called the police reporting a Male in the Girls Locker Room Exposing Himself to Young Girls…
Only to be Forced (Pander or Perish) to Apologize to Him – for Her failure to pretend He is a Womyn, regardless of how Obviously Male the Naked Man was.
Dr. Anthony Daniels (writing in his book ‘Anything Goes’) dissected this Thought Policing as Forcing People to repeat Obvious Lies – as a means of destroying their sense of Probity, the better to instill fear of the Truth similar to the ever changing ‘reality’ of Stalin’s Rule.
When the People who used to Uphold the System, start talking seriously about Civil Disobedience to Evil Agendas – the Nation is in Grave Danger
“Archbishop: ‘The More That Gov’t Mandates Evil Actions, The More Likely Civil Disobedience Becomes’
Calling the Obama administration “the most tone deaf to religious liberty issues in recent memory,” Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput warned that religious freedom in the U.S. is “at risk,” and that “the more government mandates evil action, the more likely civil disobedience becomes.”
Last February, Chaput urged his fellow prelates to take the “right action…whatever the cost” regarding the Health and Human Services’ contraceptive mandate…
There’s a very odd disconnect in praising religious freedom while the Justice Department goes after the Little Sisters of the Poor.
“For religious believers, that means defending their faith in the courts and legislatures. It also means living their faith with joy and conviction, publicly as well as privately.”
Since Archbishop Chaput chooses to disobey Canon 915, he has no real basis for commenting!

As human beings, we are more likely to stare at another human being for quite a while in order to determine one thing more than any other: their gender. When our minds cannot make a quick decision, we are temporarily stumped and are unable to move on to the next question about our environmental surroundings until we know the gender of the person in question. This question must be more important to our brains as part of our biological inheritance than most of us realize.
As a strong little girl raised by a super-masculine father disappointed that his first born was not a boy, I tried to prove to him that I was not only a full-on girl but was just as good as any little boy might have been and helped him build our three houses, became a star athlete the boys insisted on having in their baseball team long before this was heard of, and went on to succeed in the world of men as well as in the womanly arts.
It feels great to be all woman and to do things that supposedly only men can do in our culture but which are illogically defined as closed to women, culturally speaking. I think each person should be allowed to do everything and anything they want to do, since some women are such good homemakers that they can also build homes, and some men are great hunters and can also make gourmet meals out of what they bring home. What’s wrong with that? Nothing. Why should anyone let anyone else tell them what they can do with their God-given lives? The laws of culture all need to be questioned, and the ones that make no sense should be discarded by thinking girls and boys, men and women, and leaders of societies.
When your time comes, try telling that to the Blessed Mother!

I model myself after the Blessed Mother insofar as I am able, Kenneth, and try to follow Jesus as well. I don’t expect to have anything requiring my apologizing to the Blessed Mother; are you suggesting that by living life to the fullest extent possible for this particular human being, I have somehow offended the Blessed Mother? I’ve understood with my heart all that you have shared and have agreed with you the vast majority of the time over the years I’ve been reading your blogs, but this particular judgment on your part astounds me. Where is it written that I cannot do and be all that God made me to do and be? I am a happily married, faithful wife with a devoted and loving husband, have worked hard, raised children to be fine citizens while participating in life rather fully and somewhat fearlessly in undertaking anything of interest to me that I could, and I fail to see the sin or shame in that. I do wonder what supposedly Catholic perspective you have superimposed on my story to cause you to presume I need to apologize to the Blessed Mother for my life choices. Please explain yourself, Kenneth.
I can’t speak for Kenneth M. Fisher but I would like to share some thoughts. You wrote: “It feels great to be *all woman and to do things that supposedly only men can do* in our culture but which are illogically defined as closed to women, culturally speaking. I think each person should be allowed to do everything and anything they want to do, since some women are such good homemakers that they can also build homes, and some men are great hunters and can also make gourmet meals out of what they bring home. What’s wrong with that? Nothing. Why should anyone let anyone else tell them what they can do with their God-given lives? ”
Maryanne, No one can tell you what to do with your God given life but I would like you to realize that you do sometimes seem inconsistent in what you are trying to convey. You also once wrote, “Father Boyle needs to forgive the Church as well for daring to teach that with which he does not personally agree. To denounce Church teachings publically is to harm the Church itself, and for that he must be counseled by those “more competent” than *my own small self*. ” = Maryanne, Is it closed to you as a woman to help by reminding others that they are offending God? The Blessed Mother is our role model and she has given us many reminding examples of how to lovingly address those in error.
continued from February 19, 2014 at 11:31 am
Maryanne … OR Are you saying that it should be a woman who is more competent that you? Which one is it? A distracting conversation on the war of competencies between men and women (a favorite of the father of lies to keep the embers of hatred burning) or clarifying the REAL WAR on TRUTH? Do you think that your role model Our Lady would want you to be silent when her son is being mocked. You were certainly not being small or silent when you did practically canonize this disobedient priest and another priest even took the time to commented on your very ambiguous sounding post. Why did you not respond to Father Bishop? Don’t you think Our Lady would have wanted you to respectfully respond? I don’t understand how you on one hand call yourself capable to do anything as a woman that you set your mind to but then all of the sudden “become my own small self” and not be able to tell a friend how much that his words are damaging to you and others who want to view their priests as being loyal sons of our Blessed Mother. Once again, Our Lady of Akita warned the world about those who are making compromises. You have for the most part, upheld Church teaching but that particular post caused me to wonder. Now Maryanne I realize that you are not concerned if anyone is wondering about you but if your one post can cause lack of trust to some readers, then imagine the terrible spiritual damage that is done if a priests drags down countless souls because he was disloyal to God by publicly ridiculing God’s Laws. Maryanne if you can help your father build three houses then you WERE then and you ARE now quite capable of following in the footsteps of Our Lady and of St. Francis when Our Lord said, “Francis rebuild my Church.”
Catherine, this is not the topic. I have already responded to you in the past, indicating that I will not engage with you further on this topic. I remain convinced that Father Boyle is in error in publicly disagreeing with Church teachings about such matters as ordaining women. I also remain convinced that Father Boyle has done much more for his flock and for his fellow human beings than most of us have.
If you wish to remain on topic, I will respond if there is anything in your comments that rises above the level of personal attacks, with which you engage with entirely too much alacrity and evident pleasure than can be said to be worthy of a devotee of Our Lady. A little more Christian charity in your heart would make your often laudable comments a lot easier to read. While Father Boyle, like all of us, has been known to be in error, he does exude a remarkable aura of Christian love in his heart that is easy to recognize and a pleasure to experience. In the presence of Mother Theresa, I noted she exuded the same sort of aura of Christian love of which I am speaking, which, despite human failings and imperfections, remains the most remarkable thing about her. Father Boyle, a still living man, is of course not perfect, nor is he a saint, but his love and good works are still noteworthy.
Having a more loving heart is what I am daring to suggest you continue to work on increasing. Please forgive my directness, but frankly, my dear, your harping on long-dead topics and the shortcomings of others is beginning to wear on me.
Maryanne, Thank you for responding. You gave the impression that you wanted to know why another reader (Kenneth) might question your post. Kenneth has not responded as of yet so as a friend with a loving heart I responded and it was not as a personal attack but to explain how someone could still misinterpret your many good posts. I am not trying to wear you thin Maryanne. Please consider this thought. The Blessed Mother did not wear anyone thin by constantly telling others that girls are just as capable and as good as boys. God loves both women and men. While it it true that both women and men are capable of hurting someone, you do not see Scripture quotes where Our Lord asked men and women to quibble over the capabilities and competencies of their genders. Catholic truth applies equally to men and women and that is wear the focus should be.
How does one get a more loving heart?
‘By contemplating the pierced side of Christ (John 19:37), we can understand the starting point of this Encyclical Letter: “God is love” (1 John 4:8) It is from there that our definition of love must begin. In this contemplation the Christian discovers the path along which his life and love must move.” Deus Caritas Est Pope Benedict XVI
How does one get a more loving heart? = By learning to practice what you preach and by NOT undermining priests who privately and publicly defend and uphold Church teaching regarding homosexuality.
Kenneth, In light of your comments to Maryanne, what do you think our Blessed Mother’s view of St. Joan of Arch is?
This whole thing looks like a mishmash of biological, sociological and and fashon terms. “Cisgender” basically means you haven’t changed genders. That’s the vast majority of us. Transgender is the opposite of cisgender. It refers to someone who has/is changed/changing thier gender. Androginous can refer to can refer to a woman who has a very slim build and short hair who wears jeans and a sweatshirt when she washes her car. I may be wrong but I don’t believe there is any common definition of “Genderqueer” it’s almost like someone can say “I’m genderqueer because I’m genderqueer.” “Male and female He made them” (except for a very, very few who are born biologicly intersex.) Anyway, I enjoy being a girl :-)
The Political Thought Policing foundational to enforcing lies such as the abolition of Gender (XX or XY – Only Two, genetic or gestational birth defects notwithstanding) – is heading in one direction, as the following by Matt Barber so clearly outlines:
“…The goal is to silence people of faith.
“They are laying the groundwork here through an incrementalist approach to ultimately criminalize the exercise and publicly taking a position in favor of biblical sexual morality,” Barber observes.
– See more at:
It’s interesting to me that you would say that the goal of efforts like facebook’s gender choices is to silence people of faith, dear Michael McDermott. The interesting thing is that gay people of faith would probably say the same thing about you: You would love nothing more than people like me to cower in silence, not tell the world that we are Christians in communion with Rome, and in our silence pretend that we are something that we are not. Who is silencing whom?
YFC, “Christians in communion with Rome”? Have you ever heard of Bella Dodd?
Harpy Tales 2 U – Until they bleat again…
Dear CCD Readers – just in case the scam is not apparent, let me make it clear that i am not involved in any exchanges with Anonymous Trolls here – despite the use of my name in their Personally (ad-hominem) harassing / denigrating posts targeting me.
Whether it is a committee or a single Troller – the craven refusal to identify themselves (their-self) is enough for me to decline to pretend to interact with what may well be a spam program – set on automatic for the denigration of actual Catholics (including the Wise Moral Teachings of Our Magisterium) that this screen ‘persona’ engages in – but Not with My approval or participation.
BTW – To the Anonymous Troll: Please stop using my name or pretending to address me, at least until you actually identify who you are.
Facebook has just added a religious customizable option. If you identify as Catholic, you now are allowed to expand that designation to multiple options: Roman Catholic, Good Old Fashion Catholic, Orthodox Catholic, Faithful Catholic, and Traditional Catholic, to name a few. Of course YFC, Siollan and their ilk will be happy to know that there are also designations to suit their particular procilivities: Heterodox Catholic, Cafeteria Catholic, Cultural Catholic, Happy-Clappy Catholic, Trans Catholic, Questioning Catholic, Queer Catholic, Fluid Catholic and, of course, Fake Catholic.
gravey, Excellent post! Also, as the unrepentant proclivities of many within the Church goes, the world goes and Facebook goes. Meanwhile Russia is spreading her errors while assaulting the Catholic Church from within and using the extreme vulnerability of those who are still attached to such proclivities and this has been made possible by many a fake Catholic. Our Lady of Fatima warned the world what would happen if men did not repent of their sins and stop offending God. The battle is raging and we have the promise of Our Lord that the gates of hell will not prevail. Father John Hardon SJ said, “Unless true and loyal Catholics have the zeal and the spirit of the early Christians, unless they are willing to do what they did and to pay the price that they paid, the days of America are numbered.” We must always remember the words of Our Lady, “In the End My Immaculate Heart Will Triumph.”
Fake Catholic = “The result is this little book, AA-1025 Memoirs of the Communist Infiltration Into the Church, a strange and fascinating account of a Communist who purposely entered the Catholic priesthood along with many others, with the intent to subvert and destroy the Church from within. His strange yet fascinating and illuminating set of biographical notes, tells of his commission to enter the priesthood, his experiences in the seminary, and the means and methods he used and promoted to help effect from within the auto-dissolution of the Catholic Church.
No one will read this book without a profound assent that something just like what is describer here must surely have happened on a wide scale in order to have disrupted the life of the Catholic Church so dramatically. ”
Taken from Wikiquotes – Nikita Khrushchev,
Disputed but printed in Wikiquotes
The living will envy the dead.
The attribution of this widely quoted remark about nuclear war to Khrushchev is disputed in Respectfully Quoted : A Dictionary of Quotations (1989).
In Russia this quote is usually attributed to the translation of Treasure Island by Nikolay Chukovsky: “А те из вас, кто останется в живых, позавидуют мертвым!” (“Those of you who will stay alive will envy the dead”, originally: “Them that die’ll be the lucky ones”).
“You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.” 
(When talking to US President Truman on a visit to America regarding how healthy the crops looked) “If you had made it (how to raise crops so well) a secret, I would have known about it.”
The Serious Message of Our Lady of Akita, Japan is like Serious Message of Our Lady of Fatima
“If men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the Bishops and the priests.
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see Cardinals opposing Cardinals, Bishops against other Bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests). Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises, and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.
“The demon will be especially implacable against the souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will no longer be pardon for them.”
Gravey, I think the fake catholics are those who think that God only grants grace to people who take their sacraments in Latin.
Now, I don’t mean those who like the TLM over the Novus Ordo. I mean the people who somehow think that hearing the mass in vernacular somehow prevents inspiration from God. Believing that God somehow only operates in Latin is like believing in magic spells.
Cute. Actually, Facebook has always allowed you to put in whatever religious and political affiliation you want, even if you’re the only one. Not sure why anyone would, though, as the only purpose it serves is feeding Big Data. At best it puts you in a filter bubble or marketing demographic. At worst, an NSA watch list.
Plus, everyone knows there are only a few types of Catholics; Traditionalists and Schismatic Traditionalists, Right Wing and fringe Right Wing. All other points of view are merely channeling Satan … or one would think by reading all but a handful of the comments here. I’m happy to provide an opposing viewpoint. Someone needs to.
There are no right wing or left wing Catholics when it comes to the Faith.
There are only 2 – “Catholics” and “Catholic Heretics”.
Catholics adhere to the Bible and the “Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition”.
Heretics adhere to whatever they want, whenever they want.
Tell me Mike,
Who were the real Catholics and who were the Heretics during the Spanish Inquisition?
Were the “real” Catholics the ones who were reporting their neighbors to Inquisitors, so they could be tortured? Or were the “real” Catholics the ones who were either passively, or actively, fighting the obvious immorality of the officials running the Inquisition?
Jon J, no one is torturing homosexuals unless they are criminals, Practicing homosexuals are doing a fine job of torturing themselves by jamming their body parts where they do not belong and causing diseases and injuries to their own bodies and those of others who will not listen to common sense. One need only click on line on reputable medical websites to see what they do to themselves by misusing their very own bodies. Most elementary school students know better than that, so they go after the children to deceive them with false “knowledge”.
Anne, I provided video of a gay person being tortured in Russia. Perhaps you missed it?
YFC, I do not get on any website where I have to “sign” in, other than my own provider, so I was unable to read it. And YFC, I can provide you with information of practicing homosexuals who have destroyed many people. In fact, I would say the majority of homosexuals who are murdered are murdered either by their own kind (other practicing homosexuals), or those who have left chaste living on the sexual level and become very promiscuous. Cases in point; Paul Shaeffer, a German pedophile of boys who started a cult and supposedly a home for children in Latin America, who eventually not only forbade his heterosexual cult followers to marry and have children, but experimented on children by giving them hormones that stopped their sexual growth as men or women. Sound familiar? It certainly does to me. Also, the “Rev.” Jim Jones, a practicing bi-sexual who helped out Harvey Milk with money, who had all those people murdered. Even the case of Matthew Shepherd ended up proving my point, as one of his torturers and killers ended up being an ex male lover., and the murder was over illegal drugs. Then there is Jeffrey Dalhmer and on and on. No not all homosexuals and lesbians murder, but a good portion of them do because once someone gets rid of one of the Ten Commandments from his or her conscience, they are most likely to not worry too much about keeping the rest. Yes, people should have a fair trial, but little children should not be told that misusing their sexual functions in either right or good, and that, my friend, should be stopped. Pronto!
Judge / Forum Shopping is nothing new – and was quite probably part of assigning Homosex Activist Judge Von-Wanker to the Proposition 8 Marriage case in San Francisco – where the Local Gaystapo Packed the Courtroom and cheered / jeered witnesses – while Walker Smiled and gave Himself and HIs Cronies every thing they wanted. Now – More of the Same:
“Convoluted TX ‘marriages’ labeled as publicity stunt
LGBT activists have tried another end-run around Texas’ constitution – specifically, the section that defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman.
Two transgendered men, dressed as women, wanted to marry women and shopped around for a judge to marry them. The men claimed to be women even though their birth certificate showed them to be men.
After trying more than a dozen different clerks and judges, they found someone who would accommodate them…
OneNewsNow asked Jonathan Saenz of Texas Values if the marriages are legal.
“As far as legally, my understanding is a man married a woman,” he responded. “Just because they dressed up does not seem to have changed anything – and so whatever victory they think they have is ridiculous because it doesn’t exist. This really is a publicity stunt, in my opinion.”
… Saenz said it was a simple matter of finding a judicial activist. “And that is the state of affairs unfortunately in Texas and other parts of the country,” he laments.
“… Some judges are just unwilling to enforce the law and to do things the way they’re supposed to as judges. They want to make the law and really obliterate any standard or rule of law that currently exists.”
And that, Saenz asserts, is “a dangerous precedent.”

All will be judged in the end. Nothing can or will be swept under the rug. God knows all, cannot deceive nor be deceived. Eternity is a long time to suffer pains in hell. Time to turn away from sin, and turn to pleasing God above all things.
The Rights of Children: Biology Matters
by Melissa Moschella 2/20/14
Every child has a right to be loved by his or her biological parents. Third-party reproduction violates this right by intentionally conceiving a child in a way that will alienate that child from at least one of her biological parents.
Now that many children conceived with the help of donor sperm or eggs have reached adulthood, many of these donor-conceived adults have claimed a right to know their biological parents.

Transgendered teen on CA softball team: ‘Mixed-up, in-your-face’ agenda
Becky Yeh – California correspondent (OneNewsNow.com) 2/20/14
A transgender teenage boy’s admission onto a girls softball team is “categorically unfair” to female students and players, says a pro-family leader.
School officials at Azusa High School in California are allowing a male student, who identifies as a female, to play on the girls’ varsity softball team. Patrick Cordova-Goff, known as Pat, is student body president and a cheerleader. He is now California’s first transgender student to join a girls’ high school softball team.
“It is categorically unfair to biological girls to have to compete with a sexually confused young man, with stronger upper body strength, who makes the game board decidedly unequal,” argues Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com.
“No one can change their gender,” he says, “because you’re either born male or female, and your chromosomes never contradict nature.”
