Cathloholics Anonymous: A Sobering Communion With Facts

With the selection of a new Pope, certainly a lot of mention is being made of the Catholic Church sex scandals. It was a matter of time before someone took the crass easy shot of making sure homosexuality stays blended with molestation in the minds of the auto-pilot public. Leave that to Bill O’Reilly, who this week, took it upon himself to ‘whoopsie daisy’ conflate homosexuality with molestation (more on that later).  Alas, I figure it’s worth clarifying this matter as this poison calls for an antidote.  It is often said that the two have nothing to do with each other, and just as often silently assumed that they do. But it is never explained how the two got conjoined to begin with. Here’s how:

1.  Absolution of sin by proximity to God.

If you’ve grown up in a Catholic family/country, then you’ve been immersed in a culture that makes certain you are aware that any deviation from heterosexuality is an outright sin, and one that you should be immensely ashamed of.  The prolonged internalization of this feeling can cause some men to ‘hide’ from persecution on the the two fronts they face it on:  1. society/family and  2. God himself.  By entering the clergy, the men, who are deviants by Catholic measure, are ‘excused’ from displaying any normal sexuality because they are to be chaste, therefore, no suspicion is ever aroused that they are homosexual since they don’t take wives.  The same modality is applied the molestor-types, as obviously taking a child partner would never be possible.  That is the the model of deflection used toward society.  And for their personal concerns, they can assuage their guilt and sinful nature through their constant communion with and proximity to God working in the Church.

2. Law Of Attraction – if you were to describe the Cardinal signs of Catholicism, they might be: sexually repressed, and guilt ridden.  Who else might be feeling this way? Those who are told their sexuality is sinful. Life is set up in a way that people who are of a similar feather flock together. What an irony then that this grand institution has focused so much energy into fear and judgement that it has become the most vibrationally similar element to that which it condemns.

Obviously homosexuality is not a sin against anyone.  This differentiates it from the configuration of sexuality which imposes upon a victim through molestation.  It is unfortunate that Catholicism has erroneously condemned Homosexuality to be such a sin, and it is because of this that the Homosexuals – who are innocent of any sexual immorality – are subjected to the same feelings of shame as those who are actually inclined to sexual crime.  So…it ends up being people who internalize shame that gravitate toward the clergy, although their reason for harboring this shame is MARKEDLY different.

Traditions: at Once Unifying, and Causing Separation – The Original Sin

When I hear men reference “traditional marriage” and a more “traditional” American culture I immediately reflex in thought that what was “traditional” in terms of human behavior toward another has always been exactly what un-becomes tradition and evolves the fastest.

“Traditional” to me can be a lovely thing when it is describing the practices man has over inanimate objects; like how to prepare a turkey, how to dance a jig, how and when to sing a hymn, how to cuss in your grandparent’s language, etc.  I notice how it starts to get a little dangerous when tradition envelopes Human will and appears to rightfully trump free will when deciding what is ‘better’ for certain people to do with their lives.  Traditional values, traditional marriage, are things that come to mind.  And so I have noticed a bit of a logical conflict here – it seems the people most interested in maintaining a traditional lifestyle are the people who are leading Biblically centered lives, yet in the Bible the entire premise for man’s bothering to be brought into existence is to exercise free will.  So why then, impede God’s plan for Humans to have free will by being so insistent that people adhere to a particular set of values?  Isn’t this innately defiant to the creator you believe in?

Furthermore, it is hard not to notice that the leaving-out of anyone who cannot accommodate a certain traditionally presupposed lifestyle would mean that those who can are separating themselves from those who cannot.  This to me is seemingly the least Christ-like behavior, as it is a clear repetition and re-manifestation of the Original Sin – Separation from God.  How can you be Holy if you are constantly premising your existence on separating yourself from other creations of God, by way of you religion, your lifestyle, your politics, your values, etc?  The act of separation by self-espoused liturgical people seems to me to be an utterly devilish act.

I’d have to also point out that the only thing that makes a concept traditional is its repetition.  And a lot of very bad things get repeated.  So this cannot be the only logical anchor point for tradition – and yet it is.  Any number of hideous practices have been filed as tradition and reverently so.  Mayans cut the heart out of their sacrificial neighbor, cut their head off and rolled it down temple steps.  Obviously this would bring good crops and is a wonderful tradition.  It has been tradition in India for families to arrange the marriage of their offspring.  Women love this and it has nothing to do with them being seen as property or beneficial to extending a family line and funding said family through a dowry.  It is one of America’s newer traditions – but some Mormon men traditionally perpetrate the brainwashing and use of underage females for service as a wife, homemaker, sex-haver, baby farmer and general subservient to the male ego and sex drive.  But the women love this.  It is called a “traditional” life style in the Mormon faith, adhering to their earliest (read: 180 year old) tenants, and therefore it must be good.  It uses the word TRADTIONAL.  Aren’t you listening?  Traditional means good.  It is synonymous only with turkey, Christmas, Jesus, national anthems and nothing that can ever hurt you.  It has been in no way involved with the perpetuation of some bad ideas that have hurt or limited people anywhere in the world ever.  Just call something tradition, and you will have incited a magical incantation hypnotizing the sheepeople into a relaxed, receptive lull, wherein agreement to what ever you just said is rufied into their date-rape ready mind.  And they were asking for it.

If it were really God’s Law to live in a certain manner, then it couldn’t be violated.  Wouldn’t it stand to reason that God’s Laws would outrank the laws of physics?  Try violating gravity and see what happens.

So then there really must not be any true laws from the creator governing the soft-tissue of our social lives.  Whites can marry blacks, men can marry each other, Jews can eat shellfish, and the world is not knocked off its axis and the sun still came up tomorrow…which reminds me of another set of actual inviolable laws, those of nature…including Human nature.

So the next time you hear someone refer to a deviant lifestyle as violating “traditional” values, or that it is against God’s Law, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that both are abstract concepts in the minds of men, and always have been.  Guess it’s just tradition.

Gay Marriage: Bend Over And Take It

Why allow gay marriage?
The reason is this: marriage as we know it today is an abstract of mans thinking – and therefore a created institution.  We already recognize that we cannot disallow minorities from any institution.
Marriage, as it stands now, is no more similar to original Biblical marriage than gay marriage would be.  there is enough philosophical difference between the two constructs (Biblical vs. modern) to make them equally as reprehensible, damn-worthy, heretical and wicked to the pre-medieval sensibilities.
As readily as it would be recognizable to the modern mind that disallowing a racial minority from marrying a majority, or owning property, or a having a license of any kind (which are all man-made abstractions), would be persecutory, bigoted and illegal – it should so too be immediately recognizable that disallowing any minority from the licenship to marry is just as foul. None of these abstract ideas we commonly use to partition and govern our lives are real.  You cannot touch a marriage, put a piece of land in your pocket, see a religion, or prove the value of money.  All of these are abstract ideas that exist fleetingly as agreements between people.  Not agreements between the same one God of North America and ALL of earth.
So – given that marriage, as it used today, is as much a man-made institution as anything, barring admission to a non-hetero couple is culturally and legally unacceptable.
The rub is this:  marriage is not innately sanctimonious.  People sanctify their agreements by adhering to them.  That is the only magic in the mix – that fulfillment of a ‘promise to a people’ is a God-like gesture and thus aligns you with the Universal Law of Truth and alchemizes your live(s) with that Virtue.  Heterosexually-configured humans are not bestowed with any special privilege of experiencing a Truth that anyone else is not.  We bring sanctity to our unions.  We bring sanctity by fulfilling our intentions and agreements under Love, and that is all that is happening when a marriage is done right.  The benefit to this construct was never ‘given’ by God, a church, a government or a piece of paper downtown.  It was earned and maintained by the couple involved.
There is no such thing as rote, automated sanctity.
It is time to bring awareness to this dirty trick that whitey has played: “allowing” what marriage means to evolve from it’s inconvenient earlier state to something much more suitable to how white men would like to live their lives – is a farce of the eons.  Once upon a time the word of god was considered inerrant.  Then the word of God was spellchecked by the arc of female temperament that has come into the fold in western societies – and revised marriage to be less male-centered, and rightfully so.
By now it has experienced innumerable revisions.  They can call it  “sanctimonious”, and then disallow its benefits and inclusiveness to whomever whitey deems to be the outsiders de rigueur. This community-by-disclusion trick has gotten old.  It is tribal and even animalian before that.  Shunning what is different to reinforce what is same is the farthest departure from anything Christ like.
And so why does it matter?…..what actually is – at a measurable level –  the effect of / reason for not resigning to the term ‘civil union’ even if it including everything?:…Language.
And that is reason enough.  Language is the currency of thought between people.  And that system wouldn’t work either if your dollar isn’t worth the same in your hand as it is in mine.  We must be equal in thought.  Our language informs the way that we regard one another, and if any minority, at the onset, are described in a manner that exists them even slightly outside the boundary of inclusion, then it makes them the likely candidate for the ‘community by disclusion’ instinct in human beings.  This would set in motion an archaic cascade separatist thinking.  Beginning with anti-social behavior, and ending with bigotry.  Then ending again at violence if remaining unchecked. It all begins like one cancer cell – one malignant thought can metastasize into a nightmare for a people if a non-wholistic way of thinking is given fertile ground in our hearts and minds.

The Condensation Of Souls

1. Like will flock to like…and the heat (literally “light” on water) on our lives will cause some to transmute form, ascend, and connect with the other ascendants (Rapture reference empatterned in the bible, although highly mutilated through multiple translations and mal intents). “Light” is the impetus for growth in nature, just as it is to our nature. As beings with a more advanced soul, we are able to ‘allow’ in more light, and therefore be affected by it.

Imagine the brain/soul’s capacity to receive light to be like a radio antenna….it was rudimentary 100 years ago, but after evolution the modern satellite antennas can ‘channel’ much more information. And so can we.

2. Some will congregate in non-ascending groups bound together by their thought forms. These “pockets” will experience what was foretold as ‘Hell on Earth’ conditions in Revelations. Ironically, they will be the ones warning everyone else of the impending (read: happening) Tribulation if you do not join in their practices of misalignment to the universal laws.

Because of the general tenor of the thoughts, feelings and actions that they take, fear & separation are the dominant tones and result produced. Because this stands in such stark contrast to the newly solidified demands of oneness and cooperation – consequence will be bold [and more immediate], creating a real time feedback loop wherein the misguided see the tumult as imposed extrinsic punishment rather than self-generated outcome.

The Micro is the Macro

The expression of life through one person follows the pattern of creative life force expressed through all persons.  If someone were to ask you, what was the exact date that you entered puberty, it would be a silly question…and you wouldn’t precisely be able to answer it. Yet, you know that you very much did enter into (and complete) this cycle of change.

Base as it may seem, the aforementioned scenario is the exact microcosmic mirror/manifestation to the evolutionary shift that is afoot.  This is the identifiable period in time that rapid pace evolution is begun. It’s contextual parallel in religous material is the Bar Mitzvah. The coming of age. The time when you begin to phase into adulthood and gain more responsibility.

It’s even happening in the 13th year of the new millenium.

The universe is encoded with patterns…The median soul age is shifting from “more young souls than old souls” to “more old than young”, thus the collective soul age of the species is comparable to that of a young adult, and so, our responsibilities are changing (just as they would in your own life). You know that your 5 year old self would not have been consequenced the same way as your 14 year old self, as such the Universe is now treating us the same way….as a very young adult with burgeoning responsibilities and rewarding new possibilities. Just as an adolescent surges with hormones, impulses of fear and lust, gravitation towards new enchantments and an expansion of awareness, so too will we as a collective now maturating into this new paradigm.

Immediate Consequence…

The time between the actions you choose and their ensuing reaction has been substantially reduced.  Negative karma can show up later in a lifetime – on later incarnations, but most people are in their later incarnations. There is no more deferral. That is why it appears that a lot of systems are breaking down and self-correcting. There is less time now for the unsustainable to be sustained.
