Bereft Over Ginsburg, HuffPost Writer Turns to Satan

The liberal id has been unleashed, exposing itself to the point of self-parody. From HuffPost:

When Justice Ginsburg died, I knew immediately that action was needed on a scale we have not seen before. Our democracy has become so fragile that the loss of one of the last guardians of common sense and decency in government less than two months before a pivotal election has put our civil and reproductive rights in danger like never before. And, so, I have turned to Satanism.

The author then goes on to praise the Seven Fundamental Tenets of the Satanic Temple.

Sure, why not? With one less leftist to legislate from the bench, democracy is in peril. Maybe Devil worship will help.

The author’s main concern is that abortion will be made illegal if it is not imposed by the Supreme Court based on the preposterous lie that it is guaranteed by the Constitution. She worries that her daughters will be impeded from aborting her grandchildren.

She needn’t fret. Even if Roe v Wade is overturned for being a terrible ruling on constitutional grounds, abortion will not be banned throughout the country absent a massive cultural shift.

However, she is correct to view Satanists as champions of abortion. As noted at LifeSiteNews,

[T]he Satanic Temple has been fighting for abortion for some years now (they recently raffled a free abortion and declared abortion a “religious ritual”).

Abortion is a high sacrament in both the liberal and satanic religions. Maybe they will merge.

TikTok Baby Toss Challenge

Now that it has effectively merged with the Democratic Party, Black Lives Matter has scrubbed its plan to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family” from its website for political reasons (though you can still see it here). However, the prevailing attitude toward the family remains unchanged among the politically fashionable, to judge from the Baby Toss Challenge, which is all the rage on TikTok

Via Summit News:

[P]arents and siblings, most of whom appear to be African-American, are seen lip syncing to the song Baby by Blueface, which features the lyrics, “No baby, we can’t have the baby. If you don’t take this Plan B, b****, it’s plan C.”

Plan B is a reference to the morning after pill. Plan C is presumably abortion.

The babies are then thrown off to the side or behind, with the user in most instances not even checking to see if they landed safely before twerking or performing some other kind of dance in front of the camera.

That sums up the progressive attitude toward the family, personal responsibility, and the value of innocent life.

Blueface has explicitly encouraged this behavior, urging his fans to “Grab da nearest baby.”

Behold what they are replacing our culture with:

Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of. - Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Catholics for Biden and Parasitoid Wasps

Father James Altman has made a compelling case that it is no longer possible to be both a Catholic and a Democrat. Yet we read this:

Prominent Jesuit Father Thomas Reese has taken to Twitter to promote the national kick-off of Catholics for Biden, a “grassroots” group promoting the Democrat ticket in November.

Fanatical Democrat support for abortion makes this blasphemous. However,

Last Thursday, Father Reese published an essay insisting that it is acceptable for Catholics to vote for Catholic candidates who openly support abortion on demand.

Brace yourself for his reasoning:

“[A] Catholic Democrat can vote for Biden, even if his policies promote abortions and gay marriage, as long as the voter’s intent is not to support those positions.”

By the same logic, a good Catholic could vote for the Nazi Party, so long as the intent is not to make Jews into lampshades.

Reese says that Biden’s positions on other issues compensate for snuffing out lives and making a mockery of matrimony. The first he mentions is “racism.” Yet the Christian position is that we are all equal before God, whereas the Democrat position is that preferred races deserve special treatment at the expense of others through policies like Affirmative Action.

In the context of Catholicism, the abortion issue dwarfs all others.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: “From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person — among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.”

Abortion “is gravely contrary to the moral law,” the Catechism declares, and, therefore, a person who procures an abortion incurs excommunication from the Church “by the very commission of the offense.”

Biden is such an avid advocate of abortion that he wants to repeal the Hyde and Helms Amendments, forcing Christians to finance it. It follows that he should be excommunicated. But instead, some in the church actively support him.

In a related story,

Few parasitoids are more bizarre or disturbing than the wasps of the genus Glyptapanteles, whose females inject their eggs into living caterpillars. There, the larvae mature, feeding on the caterpillar’s fluids before gnawing through its skin en masse and emerging into the light of day. Despite the trauma, not only does the caterpillar survive—initially at least—but the larvae mind-control it, turning their host into a bodyguard that protects them as they spin their cocoons and finish maturing. The caterpillar eventually starves to death, but only after the tiny wasps emerge from their cocoons and fly away.

What a perfect metaphor for the relationship between progressives and the churches they infiltrate and subvert. You might say that Father Reese is a parasitoid priest.

“Complicated” is putting it mildly.
