Goslin, now acting police commissioner, yesterday called Carrasquillo’s alleged acts and those of the other officers “atrocious.”
I don't know how many of you were following Alpman's comments about the hag who simulates the sacraments as being the voice and face of his god, and the discourse which followed. The conversation was about chapter in Luke where Christ told the parable about the prodigal son. While reading the story about these policemen, I wondered if perhaps they attend Alpman's church where they are taught there no need to avoid temptations.
Alpman (who said he is a priest) claims that the parable of the prodigal son who left the father's holy home to spend his inheritance in boom-boom rooms, has nothing to do with repentent sinners, the judgments between right and wrong actions and what kind of sinners Christ rejects as lost, vs. the ones He embraces as found.
I have to be honest...conversations like that with a priest, give me the creeps. They are unsettling.
Does Christ and His Church sit with unrepentent sinners? Of course we do - but He did not change the Gospel to make them feel good about their bad choices. Christ didn't keep it from the entire congregation because there were sinners who refused to repent and He didn't want to make them feel "guilty". Guilt is the vehicle to conversion. You've got to get on the guilt bus before it takes you to the destination: wanting to say you are sorry to God, promising to avoid that temptation again, working to amend your life.
Christ and His Aposotolic Church sets up an internal feedback system whereby we make our decisions about right actions and wrong actions. Christ continuously spoke about which actions were sinful. Those teachings caused self examination that people either rejected or accepted. Those who accepted approached Him for repentance. Those are the people Christ were sitting with when the Pharisees approached Him vomiting their jealous rage.
Alternately, in Alpman's church, the moral chaos goes unaddressed. There is no call to self examinations and judgments about your actions. There is no guilt. There is no amendment of your life. God will crown you, he says, without judgment.
Alpman's spin of Christ's explanation is, from Monday to Saturday we can whore, booze it up, steal,maim, murder, rape in boom-boom rooms, so long as we show up on Sunday where Christ will rejoice in our presence. Nothing is therefore "atrocious". The police commissioner should be saying thank you, well done, good and faithful servants, here is a robe and a crown for your heads - let us kill a fat pig and rejoice. Because that is exactly what he does. He welcomes all at the door, puts a robe on all, transforms bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ and sets the feast before us all, wishing us well until he sees us next week.
Can you imagine if somebody in civil law took this position in the public square?
The lynch mob would stampede the commissioner of civil laws if he dared to respondto lawbreakers in such a way.
Yet, when the commissioners of divine law projectile vomits this nonsense, putting robes and diadems on unrepentent divine lawbreakers, few of us are willing to hold up a mirror the priest's face - and ask him to look at himself.
We all know why. There is no fury that can match a priest whose ego and id has been called to the truth. They are the primo targets for the father of lies who hold them hostage. The ego sets off sparks andWe get our butts kicked. Many of us are thrown out by them or their adoring fans.
In the gospel according to Alpman, every "learned student" knows that those who obey laws and those who break them do not face a judgement with Christ; those who rape women and children and those treating women and children with holy affection and respect are exactly the same in the eyes of the Church. No need whatsoever to judge your own actions and promise to amend your lives. Regardless of the anarchy and evil of what you do from Monday to Saturday - so long as you come to Mass on Sunday - you are redeemed. There is no need for remorse, no acts of contrition, no absolution of your sins through the Sacrament He died to give us.
This was the meaning of Christ's response to the sniveling people who were blinded to Christ's objective in calling the sinners to Him?
One has to wonder how anyone in the first grade would confuse Christ's mission and the objective of the parables he was trying to get through the thick heads of the arrogant, much a grown man who says he is a priest.
This, of course, tragically explains the state of affairs in our Church and why our priests have abandoned the Sacrament. There is no need of the Sacrament of Confession - because none of us are sick from our sins. We are all well.
I have zero tolerance for priests who obstruct the call to repentance. Who knows how many souls are being lost their nonsense week after week.
As far as I'm concerned, every day, when I pick up the paper to read stories like these poor policemen led astray, into temptation, they stand as monuments to the theology of the priests in the Archdiocese of Boston, Clare Bertero and the Sisters of Saint Joseph.
And the Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying: This man receiveth sinners and eateth with them.
And he spoke to them this parable, saying:
quis ex vobis homo qui habet centum oves et si perdiderit unam ex illis nonne dimittit nonaginta novem in deserto et vadit ad illam quae perierat donec inveniat illam
What man of you that hath an hundred sheep, and if he shall lose one of them, doth he not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after that which was lost, until he find it?
et cum invenerit eam inponit in umeros suos gaudens
15 5 And when he hath found it, lay it upon his shoulders, rejoicing?
et veniens domum convocat amicos et vicinos dicens illis congratulamini mihi quia inveni ovem meam quae perierat
15 6 And coming home, call together his friends and neighbours, saying to them: Rejoice with me, because I have found my sheep that was lost?
dico vobis quod ita gaudium erit in caelo super uno peccatore paenitentiam habente quam super nonaginta novem iustis qui non indigent paenitentia
15 7 I say to you that even so there shall be joy in heaven upon one sinner that doth penance, more than upon ninety-nine just who need not penance.
aut quae mulier habens dragmas decem si perdiderit dragmam unam nonne accendit lucernam et everrit domum et quaerit diligenter donec inveniat
15 8 Or what woman having ten groats, if she lose one groat, doth not light a candle and sweep the house and seek diligently until she find it?
et cum invenerit convocat amicas et vicinas dicens congratulamini mihi quia inveni dragmam quam perdideram
15 9 And when she hath found it, call together her friends and neighbours, saying: Rejoice with me, because I have found the groat which I had lost.
ita dico vobis gaudium erit coram angelis Dei super uno peccatore paenitentiam agente
15 10 So I say to you, there shall be joy before the angels of God upon one sinner doing penance.
15 11 And he said: A certain man had two sons.
15 12 And the younger of them said to his father: Father, give me the portion of substance that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his substance.
15 13 And not many days after, the younger son, gathering all together, went abroad into a far country: and there wasted his substance, living riotously.
15 14 And after he had spent all, there came a mighty famine in that country: and he began to be in want.
15 15 And he went and cleaved to one of the citizens of that country. And he sent him into his farm to feed swine.
15 16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
15 17 And returning to himself, he said: How many hired servants in my father's house abound with bread, and I here perish with hunger!
15 18 I will arise and will go to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and before thee.
15 19 I am not worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
15 20 And rising up, he came to his father. And when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him and was moved with compassion and running to him fell upon his neck and kissed him.
15 21 And the son said to him: Father: I have sinned against heaven and before thee I am not now worthy to be called thy son.
15 22 And the father said to his servants: Bring forth quickly the first robe and put it on him: and put a ring on his hand and shoes on his feet.
15 23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it: and let us eat and make merry:
15 24 Because this my son was dead and is come to life again, was lost and is found. And they began to be merry.
15 25 Now his elder son was in the field and when he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing.
15 26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
15 27 And he said to him: Thy brother is come and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe.
15 28 And he was angry and would not go in. His father therefore coming out began to entreat him.
15 29 And he answering, said to his father: Behold, for so many years do I serve thee and I have never transgressed thy commandment: and yet thou hast never given me a kid to make merry with my friends.
15 30 But as soon as this thy son is come, who hath devoured his substance with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
How can anyone reading the parable in congruent and fluent thought fail to see the link between the son who has never transgressed the commandments - the sinner who says Father I am sorry for my sins and the reliance upon repentance and amendment of the lives of the sinner as the cause for Christ's joyous reception?
Why would any priest disconnect the parable with the pigheaded Pharisees, politicians and warped lay leaders who stand in the public square to discredit the reliance confession of those sins and absolution because their ministries sell immorality?
The Pharisees are the McFaddens, Kerrys, Kennedys and National Catholic Reporter types who sell abortion to poverty stricken women while proclaiming they are about feeding the mouths of the poor. (Why do they shuffle them into clinics to kill their children if they are so giving and loving?) These people must attack repentant sinners. They spend their 'ministries' in the public square dissolving any difference between a sinner who teaches repentance and a sinner who advocates sins.
Cardinal O'Malley leading the poor slobs trusting him into the millennium appointing these same dimwitted Pharisee-types to "renew" the face of the earth.
Even when the faces and messages are twisted and heinous due to their self-deceptions and set off innate divine enmity which we warn others about - - the priests resist and work against the Gospel itself, in order to pacify their egos. In order to retain their arrogant hold onto their false gospel, they attack the people who expose the tail of the dragon.
Such a pity these 'learned students' don't know their conclusions are all based upon the false presentation of their misguided teachers.
Thanks be to God, we know the ending!
And there was seen another sign in heaven. And behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns and on his heads seven diadems.
12 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered: that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her son.
12 5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod. And her son was taken up to God and to his throne.
12 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, that there they should feed her, a thousand two hundred sixty days.
12 7 And there was a great battle in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought, and his angels.
12 9 And that great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, who seduceth the whole world. And he was cast unto the earth: and his angels were thrown down with him.
12 10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying: Now is come salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God and the power of his Christ: because the accuser of our brethren is cast forth, who accused them before our God day and night. 12 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of the testimony: and they loved not their lives unto death.
