considerations re pope francis

1. The resignation of Pope Benedict two years ago was in my opinion a coup d'etat. Popes don't resign. We had Pope John Paul the Great leading us through the worst years of the recent Culture Wars against Christianity in Western Europe and we hung on to him even when the irreligious Media and their political fellow travellers, were insisting that he was too debilitated by age and illness to lead us; We hung on to him as Pope I say, just so the world might understand that reverence for old age is no burden and that the elderly, whether neighbours, friends, brothers, sisters, grandads, invalids or Popes, are always a mystical and eternal gift. I say it again. Popes don't resign. The few exceptions in history only reinforce the rule. I suggest that Benedict was forced from office through a contrived series of pressures, ie basically by his Prime Minister and Cabinet not doing their job. There was lots of nonsense talk about Gay Mafias in the Vatican which was quietly let die after Benedict resigned. Smells of an orchestration of pressure. There was the arrest of Benedict's valet for supposedly leaking documents to the press. An 85 year old man's valet would be something of a confidante. The loss would be keenly felt. I believe these and other events may have been contrived to propel Pope Benedict into resigning.

2. When Bergoglio of Argentina was installed as Benedict's successor, with the name Pope Francis, lightning struck the Vatican. At first I thought the talk of a lightning strike was internet sensationalism. But the lightning was witnessed and photographed and we must accept it happened. Such things may mean nothing. But there is no tradition in Christianity for interpreting lightning striking a church as a good sign. Traditionally a lightning strike on a church may be taken to symbolise an expression of Satan's contempt at a time when Satan believes he has obtained a victory over Christianity. Some decades ago, the Anglican Christians of England appointed a Bishop in Durham. At his appointment part of Durham Cathedral was demolished by lightning. The Bishop of Durham later showed his hand by declaring: "Easter is a conjuring trick with bones." I think we may have one of those at the head of the Catholic Church now.

3. Pope John Paul the Great and Pope Benedict were in the habit of releasing doves over the crowds in Saint Peter's Square. It was a cutesy gesture with the doves occasionally going off message, flying back into the Pope's bedroom or landing on his head or whatever. Pope Francis released a dove from his window, and carrion birds immediately attacked the dove. Pope Francis now restricts himself to releasing balloons. The birds attacking Pope Francis dove, like the lightning strike, may mean nothing. But it's not a good sign.

4. In Buenos Aires, Argentina, a few years ago, there occurred what is claimed to have been a modern eucharistic miracle when communion bread became visible as human flesh. There have been such claims before but they are comparatively rare in recent centuries. I must explain that Catholics make an act of faith that blessed bread truly becomes the body and blood of Jesus Christ during the Communion ritual at our Mass ceremony. We consider this to be a daily miracle. There have been occasions in Church history, often as a priest was supposedly doubting the true presence of Jesus in Communion bread, when the bread became visibly human flesh and blood. These incidences have been investigated, some are Church approved and some are preserved and referred to as Eucharistic  Miracles. The Church has permitted belief in such visible eucharistic miracles but she has never required that any Christian believe in them, (The distinction I'm making here is that although the Catholic Church does proclaim consistently that the bread at Communion literally and miraculously becomes the body and blood of Jesus and we are enjoined to try and believe it, our Church does not make it an article of faith that anyone accept the real presence has ever been made visible in claimed eucharistic miracles by the bread actually being visibly seen as meat.) The modern case in Buenos Aires occurred under the jurisdiction of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio. It was investigated by doctors who declared that the substance they were testing was heart muscle. This modern eucharistic miracle in Buenos Aires meant that Bergoglio became known overnight to every Catholic Church Cardinal on the planet. The Cardinals elect the Pope. I am suggesting that the eucharistic miracle of Buenos Aires may have been staged to promote the reputation among Cardinal electors, of the man whom they would later appoint Pope Francis. I would add that I myself became aware of the Buenos Aires eucharistic miracle when it was being talked up by an expatriate native of my home town who is a self described Charismatic Christian called Doctor Joe McKenna. I would note that Doctor Joe Mckenna's father is Pat McKenna who is described on his gravestone in Kilcullen cemetery, as "Northern Brigade Commander of the IRA." Doctor Joe MacKenna's sister Breda MacKenna also presents herself on her occasional visits to Kilcullen as a Charismatic Christian. She has a particular spiel about being "on fire with love for the Catholic Church." Such characters showing up as champions of the genuineness of Bergoglio's supposed eucharistic miracle may not discredit the miracle itself. But they're not a good sign.

5. After taking office, Pope Francis announced that he would name the deceased 1960's  Pope John a saint along with our more recent Pope John Paul the Great. Pope John Paul the Great was well along the road to sainthood anyway with attested miracles through his intercession with God being claimed by various people. There was also a most exraordinary moment at his funeral when his coffin was held in the air before the crowd in Saint Peter's Square and a shaft of sunlight broke through the clouds right at the moment of elevation to illumine the coffin. President George Bush, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and another senior South American politician claim to have seen this happen. Pope John Paul the Great was a monumentally well loved Pope and calls for his naming as a saint began as soon as he died with Italian mourners chanting: "Santo subito,,, a saint immediately." Conversely there was no real widespread or popular impetus beyond left wing factions for the process of sainthood for Pope John, who is indeed very popular with liberal leftists but unremembered by everyone else. No miracle has been attributed to Pope John's intercession. Pope Francis has got around the miracle requirement simply by cancelling the requirement for a miracle in the nomination of a saint. I believe Pope Francis naming of Pope John as a saint is a political gesture to left wing infiltrators of the Church. I would add that I don't accept Pope John ever really was a leftist but indubitably leftists have attempted to seize his reputation and to interpret him as one of their own.

6.Pope Francis has also laid aside the requirement for a miracle in naming as a saint another hero to the leftists, the deceased El Salvardoran Archbishop Oscar Romero. Archbishop Romero was murdered in El Salvador in the 1980's. I doubt he is a saint in any sense beyond being a hero to left wingers.

7. Pope Francis visited an Immigration Centre on the island of Lampedusa several months ago. During that visit he called for humanitarian treatment of refugees. Unfortunately his call led Italian authorities to simply cease to enforce immigration law, creating a free for all rush on the Southern Boarders of Europe. I am saying specifically, that following Pope Francis' visit to Lampedusa, people traffickers were inspired by the Pope's words to adopt the novel strategy of directing boat loads of refugees towards the Italian coast, radioing the Italian coastguard, and saying: "We're abandoning ship. It's your fault if the people die." I am suggesting that Pope Francis single handedly while appearing to act compassionately, has unleashed a full scale people traffickers assault on Southern Europe and caused the deaths by drowning of thousands of people.

8. I disagree with Pope Francis vis a vis his opposition to the death penalty and I think he is incorrect in claiming his opposition to the death penalty is mandated by the Christian tradition.

9.  Soon after taking office Pope Francis appeared to pull the rug from under the Pro Life Movement regarding the sanctity of the lives of unborn children. I don't think this was a mistake. I think it was deliberate and is a measure of the man.

10. When Muslim murderers slaughtered fifteen people in a newspaper office in Paris two months ago, Pope Francis appeared to justify the Muslim attack commenting as follows: "If Doctor Gaspari here, a good friend, pronounces a curse word against my mother, then a punch awaits him." In two thousand years of Christianity, I don't think we've ever had such a vertent or inadvertent justification for Islamism from a Pope. I think it may be a bad sign.

regent moon riding
through fields flung open wide
like a kingdom god intended
just for me to step inside

riches now a trifle
faint remembered care
in the warm wind's ruffle
by the light of a thousand stars

now saw i the universe
now felt i at peace
till i saw two lovers kissing
by the gateway to the fields

their faces drank the moonlight
their eyes outshone the stars
and waning in my heart i knew
the universe is theirs

i'll walk no more the night time
nor watch where two caress
a moment holding everything
a lifetime nothingness

round two with frau gru

Morning in the world and the Tearman Cafe.
As if by magic, Frau Gruber materialised.
"James," she challenged. "You told me that you sincerely believed there was no happiness in sexual relationships between people of the same gender. Well I know you are wrong. I have a cousin and she has been married to someone of the same gender for twenty years and she is very happy."
I paused over the minestrone to better weigh her words.
"How many times have you seen your cousin in the last ten years?" I asked.
"I, I, er, five times," she shot back.
"I don't think you know whether your cousin is happy or not," I said softly, "but you should ring her. Ring her at least once a week for the rest of your life. Enjoy ringing her. listen to her. Give her guidance sometimes. Develop a friendship with her. Tell her about your conversations with nutty old me. Invite her to Ireland for visits. But be genuinely in her life. That's caring. That's compassion. Redefining marriage is nothing. It may give you a warm glow and a feeling of superiority but you've done nothing. To do something for someone you must be in their lives. You can't be in everyone's life. But you can be in at least one person's. Be in your cousin's life. Make the effort. From today and for the rest of your life. Thank you for your time."

today they said

Kathy Sheridan (Irish Times contributor): "Where is the God of compassion for all those Christians voting against Gay Marriage?"

James Healy: "You see Kathy, I don't think it's compassionate to ignore the sexual disruptions a generation are experiencing through present day pornography culture and to pretend that same sex orientations are naturally occurring in the person. Nor is it compassionate to pretend you speak for everyone and are the possessor of complete truth in this or any other regard when a great many people who consider themselves homosexual disagree with you on this and other matters. Nor is it compassionate in the present case to ignore the potential causes of sexual disruption among humans arising from chemical pollutants in the environment, as well as sterilising hormones leeching into the water table from contraceptive users urine, and other possibly orientation affecting substances entering the food chain via farmers' use of growth promoters in cattle, chickens and sheep. These things certainly affect the human organism Kathy. But no one, not me, and not even the Irish Times, has yet explained precisely why some of us are attracted to people of the same sex. Have a word with your colleague Katherine Holmquist who wrote a few years ago that the sexuality of persons is a moveable feast. Has Katherine changed her view to match your paper's current editorial line? Are you sure you are qualified to define compassion?"

Gabriel Byrne (actor): "I was deeply affected by the homophobic murder of Declan Flynn, a young gay man in Fairview Park in 1981."

James Healy: You see Gabriel, Dublin thugs have been beating people to a pulp and to death routinely in Dublin parks and elsewhere for the past fifty years. It was always a standard strategy for Dublin thugs to claim they were out "queer bashing" in order to obtain get out of jail free cards from corrupt Irish judges. The problem of Dublin thugs randomly targetting people and corrupt IRA gangland judges releasing those thugs without a jail sentence is obscene and ongoing. We had two teenagers beaten and stabbed in a park in Lucan yesterday. I hope Gabriel that you obtained Mr Flynn's family's approval for your claim that he was homosexual. I hope other media groups bandying his name about have done the same. I do not agree with you that the four murderers who killed him did so because they knew his sexual orientation. Those four murderers had spent their youth beating people to a pulp in Fairview Park and continued to do so afterwards. I would have preferred Gabriel if you and the media groups seeking to use Mr Flynn's death to advance your agendas, had named instead the four murderers who slaughtered him and the Judge Liberal who turned them loose on the rest of us. I would have liked to see some follow up stories about the lives those four Dublin murderers have led since their slaughter of a young man in Fairview Park all those years ago. But ah. That would have required real courage. Real compassion too Gabriel."

Mary MacAleese (Feminist, socialist, former President of Ireland): "I knew my son was gay when at the age of seven he asked me for a vacuum cleaner for Christmas."

James Healy: "No you didn't Mary."

top ten reasons to vote no in ireland's same sex marriage referendum

1. The referendum is being used by Ireland's current Fine Gael Labour Party government to distract attention from its dismal performance in office. More specifically I am asserting that through this referendum, the Fine Gael Labour Party combo is attempting to distract public attention from the following near cosmic incompetencies: From the government's legalisation of abortion after an explicit pre election promise not to legalise abortion, from the government's continued bail out of IRA shell bank Anglo Irish throwing good billions after bad to conceal the Rah's theft of the nation, from the government's failure to progress any legal action whatsover against its own infamously corrupt Minister for Justice Alan Shatter recently fired for colluding with a corrupt Chief of Police in covering up police corruption (I mean I don't want to go casting no aspoyshuns), from the government's facilitating through Fine Gael Councillor John McCartin of IRA businessman Sean Quinn in regaining control of IRA proxy companies that Sean Quinn had used to bankrupt Ireland through illegal billion dollar loans from IRA controlled shell bank Anglo Irish, from the behaviour of Minister Phil Hogan groping seventy year old women's bottoms at golf do's, from the failure of the government to charge white collar criminal Denis O'Brien regarding his bribery of former Fine Gael Minister Michael Lowry, from the government's acquiescence to white collar criminal Denis O'Brien's seizure of overall control at Independent Newspapers, from the government's cancellation of Independent Newspapers half billion dollar debt at Allied Irish Bank (note: not Anglo Irish, this is a separate corrupt bank entirely), from the government's corrupt purchase of the bankrupt Allied Irish Bank on whose board was sitting billionaire Lochlainn Quinn the brother of government Minister at the time Ruairi Quinn, from the debacle of corruptions surrounding Fine Gael's establishment of a new Water Corporation, from the government's attempts to price gouge through the recession by inventing new taxes on householders, from the government's payment of exponential salaries to its corrupt advisers, from the government's failure to end Judge Liberal's get out of jail free card justice system for murderers and rackateers, from the government's failure to address the rise of the IRA as a nationwide mafia apportioning Irish towns and villages as fiefdoms with Chinese Triads, Al Qaeda, Nigerian Gangstahs, Cosa Nostra, the Russian mob and other ever more vicious eastern European gangs, from the government's failure to end Islamist people trafficking activities into our country, from the government's failure to address the drug dealers targetting every school in Ireland with their poisons in an attempt to replace the 600 known dead Irish addicts a year with new younger addicts, from the government's attempt to conceal the 600 known deaths from suicide each year in Ireland by reclassifying suicide in neutral terminology that will hide what has happening, from the government's appointment of a wimminy insider as Chief Of Police having promised to appoint a Chief Of Police from outside the ranks of the Force in order to cope with Ireland's individually and insitutionally corrupt Police Force, from the government's policy of moving Corrupt Chiefs to new precincts rather than firing them, from the government's use of the police as a militia against the general public in Roscommon who were seeking to continue availing of their historic turf cutting rights as they had done for centuries but who were being forbidden to do so having fallen foul of some European Union tree hugger's codicil, from all of this and more the government is seeking to distract your attention through a groovy and frivolous referendum on Same Sex Marriage.

2. Demand for the referendum was contrived and promoted by IRA supporting American billionaire Chuck Feeney. The little Rah men have discovered gay rights. Come on now folks. Come on. What are THEY distracting us from?

3. A significant number of people who consider themselves attracted to people of the same sex, are opposed to this referendum.

4. I believe there is no happiness in a sexual relationship with a person of the same sex. I believe that there is no happiness in referring to such a relationship as marriage.

5. The famously anti Catholic pro Bolshevick atheistic abortionist Irish Times favours a Yes vote in this referendum. As does the bankrupt (morally and financially) Independent Newspapers group. And as does the Stalinist State broadcaster RTE, These people are reliably wrong about everything

6. Redefining marriage is not in itself a caring act. Caring means befriending people and including them in your life. It does not meaning endorsing their behaviour from afar. This referendum is gesture politics. Worse. It's gesture caring.

7. Contrary to what is being implied, many people who consider themselves attracted to people of the same sex, later decide they are not. The singer Tom Robinson produced a brilliant, poetic, passionate song in the 1980's called "Sing if you're glad to be gay." It's nearly as good as his War Baby and Atmosphere. Tommy Robinson changed his mind about being attracted to people of the same sex and is currently married to a woman. They have children. Lots of people who sang his song died of the big disease with a little name.

8. Scientists are observing a feminisation of males and a masculinisation of females in the animal kingdom. The process seems to have been underway for fifty years. The cause may be industrial pollutant chemicals in the environment or it may be female growth hormones entering the water table as excreted by people who have been using contraceptive pills. The masculinisation of females and feminisation of males among humans may have similar causes.

9. I am also suggesting that the bombardment style sex culture which has invaded human discourse, through films, advertising, music and new media, is also profoundly disruptive to human sexuality. No generation of young people has been exposed to the level of sexual stimuli that is being inflicted on young people today. Redefining marriage, rather than addressing the pornogrification of the sexualities of a generation, is false compassion.

10. Referring to mutual masturbation as marriage will not make a single person on the planet happier.

no truth in the rumour

There is no truth in the rumour that the exploitation movie Maniac Cop was based on a corrupt skanger cop that the Irish police force inflicted on my town for fifteen years.

de re publica

Denis O'Brien is the billionaire who has recently taken control of Independent Newspapers. I ask you to consider the following which may be of relevance to the continued existence of Ireland as a democracy with even vestigial traces of the rule of law.

1. Denis O'Brien's billion dollar fortune was founded on a bribe to famously corrupt Fine Gael government Minister Michael Lowry who gave Denis O'Brien Irish mobile phone service provision contracts for a few million dollars when the things should have cost a few billion.

2. A Judicial enquiry has confirmed the criminal behaviour of Denis O'Brien in this matter.

3. The present Fine Gael government has refused to take any action against Denis O'Brien who has a substantial and ongoing relationship with the Fine Gael political party.

4. Denis O'Brien has every day for the past three years published adulatory articles and photographs of Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny in the bankrupt Irish Independent newspaper which Denis O'Brien now controls.

5. Fine Gael Prime Minister Enda Kenny has nationalised bankrupt gangster bank Allied Irish Bank using public money. This worthless newly nationalised entity has following nationalisation cancelled half a billion dollars of Independent Newspapers debts. This is the only reason Denis O'Brien's bankrupt Irish Independent newspaper is still trading. By the way, a senior board member of the worthless Allied Irish Banks at time of nationalisation was Lochlainn Quinn the billionaire brother of Enda Kenny's then fellow government Minister Ruairi Quinn. Both socialist Quinns are cousins of billionaire supermarket owner Fergal Quinn. Isn't socialism great? All those billionaires. And all those Quinns. And not a whiff of the Rah. (Read on.)

6. Denis O'Brien is currently suing the Irish National broadcaster RTE to prevent RTE broadcasting a documentary on Denis O'Brien's criminal collusion with Fine Gael in the purchase of a company called Siteserv from yet another collapsed gangster bank this time the IRA shell bank styled Anglo Irish Bank. (There they are!)

7. Denis O'Brien is currently embroiled in scandals in America regarding his contributions (ie bribes) to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

8. Denis O'Brien is further implicated in corruption in the Carribean where he obtained mobile phone service contracts for the nation of Haiti no less by again bribing Bill and Hillary Clinton who were involved in reconstruction work there following the Haitian earthquake of 2005. It's an ill wind that blows nobody any good, eh Denis? One man's earthquake is another man's chance to repeat the bribe to Michaael Lowry, eh. Eh? What's the matter, cat got your crotch? And so on.

9. I call on the Irish people to jail Denis O'Brien and seize his assets. (I mean the money he has stolen from all of us through his initial bribe to Michael Lowry.)

10. That's all.

no truth in the rumour

There is absolutely no truth in the rumour that Ireland's national anthem is about to be changed to Gangstah Paradise. No. Hang on. That is true.
