Shea gun

 

Hattip to Dave Griffey at Daffey Thoughts.

 

 

The latest droppings from the mind of Mark Shea:

 

This mockery of gooey fake piety…

is currently circulating on the web.

When Christians offer “thoughts and prayers” not as prelude to obeying, but as prophylactic *against* obeying the fifth commandment, God’s Name is blasphemed among the Gentiles.

Not, of course, that I agree that thoughts and prayers are useless. On the contrary, I think them vital since I believe that the Gun Cult is a demonic spiritual stronghold just as abortion is. I think that conscious, deliberate prayer *against* that stronghold, undertaken by spiritual warriors at every Mass, will be an invaluable part of defeating and destroying this enemy of human life and this disgraceful and warping stain on the prolife movement and the witness of the Church. I believe Catholics must implore our Lord to send his mighty angels to break the grip of principalities and powers and spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places who hold people in thrall to fear and selfishness and blind them to the need to place the fifth commandment above their cultic devotion to the gun. But of course, such prayer will indeed be prelude to action, not studied inaction shrouded in pious goo.

  1. Happily there are objectors to Shea that are not banned. When Mike Blackadder and several others appear, Shea tones down the histrionics yet perseveres in his ideology script….but they came out looking wiser than he on his recent equating of Trump and Hillary on abortion…and to his credit, he hasn’t banned that several yet. On violence, I suspect from past experience with confronting two priests who were all sweetness on the pulpit but both were ravenously angry in private…I suspect that Mark is preaching to Mark on violence. If anyone kidnapped his granddaughter and he found them, he’d put them in a rear naked choke for 80 seconds rather than the safe 8 seconds recommended by the UFC cage fighting owners.

  2. The Bear is sorry, but his brain cells are currently maxed out spreading marmalade on piece of toast and has no time for fools. The Bear cannot understand this human insistence that “everyone has a right to their opinion,” when so many humans are manifestly incapable of landing a thought within a parsec of reality. The Bear shall miss your entertaining species. Try not to set fire to the woodlands on your way to extinction. Thank you.

  3. Another place to read or leave comments is the Banned By Mark Shea Facebook page. Give it a look, it’s a hoot!

  4. What amazes me is that Mark-who earns a living making up stuff about God; and even more amazing that the idiots that listen to him have money to pay him for his nonsense.
    .

    If you never leave your house, you may be safe. Until, they come for you.
    .
    Evil prevails when good men do nothing.
    .
    I read that Mark-who has a history of mental illness, look it up.
    .
    Only reason to read him is that you’re not so far-gone that you’re shoving an ice pick into your eye sockets. He’s an imbecile, I’m being charitable: no sin in being a moron.
    .
    On the night He was betrayed, Jesus told us to “. . . sell your cloak and buy a sword.” St. John the Baptist did not condemn soldiers, he told them to act justly.
    .
    FYI. Today’s sword is an AR-15.

  5. Favorite thought for anti-2nd Amendment types:

    Legal gun owners have over 200,000,000 guns and 12,000,000,000 rounds of ammo…if we were a problem, you’d know it.

  6. Ken, Good point. I use it, too.
    .
    Americans had been fully-armed since 1609. Arguably, in the late 19th century, cowboys and big game hunters armed with 30/30 Winchester lever-action rifles may have been better armed (more rapid firing) than the US Army Infantry. I’ve seen You Tube videos with a good marksman shooting a lever-action 30/30 as fast and more accurate than a semi-auto, even a .223 cal. which doesn’t take any time to get back on target.
    .
    I’m no Constitutional scholar. But, here are two facts (I think).
    .
    One, the Bill of Rights (B/R) was a requisite for the ratification of the Constitution. For liberal idiots (I repeat myself again) like Mark-who, that means the states would have voted it down the rat hole without the B/R.
    .
    Two, more essential than number one, the B/R did not give the American people their rights. Rights are God-given and unalienable. The B/R denies the Federal government legal authority/power to infringe those rights.
    .
    Ergo, the regime cannot take my guns.

  7. Penguins Fan, unfortunately, many do. I mostly stopped visiting his sites, but his immediate exploitation of the shooting was made known to me. I then decided to watch and see what he did with the attack. I couldn’t believe my eyes. If Mark was just some fluke out there, it wouldn’t matter. But he is a major figure in American Catholic apologetics. He posts for such venues as National Catholic Register and EWTN. Major figures like Pat Madrid and Dwight Longenecker give him kudos and thumbs up. He hosts radio shows, publishes for Catholic publications, and has thousands who listen to him, many no doubt of varying levels of catechesis. If a single person was encouraged to believe that it’s a sin not to vote the way Mark says, that’s one too many. Given the large number of followers and fans who listen to him and use his words to spread the message, that’s why it’s an issue.

  8. Hey I think I have my Shea translator guide working again.

    When Christians offer “thoughts and prayers” not as prelude to obeying, but as prophylactic *against* obeying the fifth commandment, God’s Name is blasphemed among the Gentiles.

    Translation: “Guuyyyysssss… your actions are totally embarrassing me in front of my liberal friends!”

    Because whether his posts lead a different group to mock and laugh at the Catholic church as an institution only for women and pansies running on the fumes of past accomplishments is not considered by Mark at all. I guess because liberal souls matter more than conservative ones or something.

    On the contrary, I think them vital since I believe that the Gun Cult is a demonic spiritual stronghold just as abortion is.

    Translation: “Click this link to see the detailed instructions on how I built my strawman so I don’t have to actually refer to any real persons since I am a coward who can no longer bear disagreement. — Oh and if you for a moment happen to listen to the other side’s arguments and think for a moment they might have a point repeat to yourself that they’re lead by Satan, it’s all lies…”

    I believe Catholics must implore our Lord to send his mighty angels to break the grip of principalities and powers and spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places who hold people in thrall to fear and selfishness and blind them to the need to place the fifth commandment above their cultic devotion to the gun.

    Translation: “Stop disagreeing with me or I’m gonna sic God on you! Honestly I will! Because I’m his favorite and he’ll do whatever I tell him to.”

    Of I course for myself, I have to wonder how well the Lord will react when He sees shepherds He left in charge of His flock increasingly panic and flee from the wolves that approach, even tossing the sheep at the predators in the hopes the shepherds might be eaten last.

  9. What difference does it make now?
    .
    Approximately one hundred percent of the imbeciles that “buy” his (complete) BS will vote for liberals, for abortion, and for the wrecking of America’s evil, unjust way of life with or without his distortions.
    .
    I have been highly successful at pretending he doesn’t exist.

    Here is a possible solution. Mock Mark-who. Express sincere contempt for his Presbyterian hysterics (you know he’s a Presbyterian infiltrator).

  10. Luke 22:36: Jesus would own an AR-15, high capacity magazines, and ammunition. He would be an NRA (Eternal) Life member.

  11. When Christians offer “thoughts and prayers” not as prelude to obeying, but as prophylactic *against* obeying the fifth commandment, God’s Name is blasphemed among the Gentiles.

    What hypocrisy! Those guys are dead because of the policies he pushes, because their lives were so cheap to him and their free will so scorned that they were not just disarmed, but anyone who might defend them was disarmed, and he wants to accuse others of not loving their neighbors?
    Get the plank out of your own eye before you start theorizing about slivers in those of others.

  12. The Bear cannot understand this human insistence that “everyone has a right to their opinion,” when so many humans are manifestly incapable of landing a thought within a parsec of reality.

    I for one would have thought a bear would appreciate that particular bromide. It’s like when humans hike through your berry batch saying “hey bear!” so they don’t accidently upset you at your supper and force you to defend your berry patch and claw their faces off. Telling Mark Shea he has a right to his opinion is a way for smart humans to give Shea the chance to amble off into the scrub and let the annoying people walk by before he back to his berry patch.

    Clint Eastwood put it much more rudely in The Dead Pool, but it’s the same general idea. Only foolish humans think “everybody is entitled to their own opinion” is some kind of virtuous sentiment.
