Hard to comment on this one....

Old news. Where have you been? No need to comment. What's your point? Is this another feeble attempt to blanket the whole Church under one person's personal opinion? Who cares? He isn't even the head bishop in the SSPX, and he already sent an apology. Catch up to the current events. Nobody cares.

James Swan said...

Matthew,

Oh, he apologized. Everything is fine now. Great.

James Swan said...

Actually, I do have a comment. this Catholic person in the video clip by his inane statements about the Jews does not invalidate the ultimate authority of Rome, in the same way, Luther's inane comments about the Jews do not invalidate sola scriptura.

James Swan said...

Old news. Where have you been?

By the way Matthew, please go visit Catholic apologist Mark Shea's blog. He posted the same video clip today.

Shea states:

Not one word of this or any of his other Jew-hatred has been retracted. All that has happened is that he has apologized for the "imprudence" embarrassing the SSPX.

Like I said, old news. Things are progressing past Williamson's nonsense. One bishop does not speak for the entire Church. By the way he is still not fully in communion yet. There are still things to be worked out. Hopefully better heads will prevail and the SSPX will come back into the fold, despite one bishop's foolish comments.

Like I said earlier, so what. Those who have brains are moving past these things and are not letting them separate a whole group of people from the Church, even though those like yourself would love to use such publicity to attack the Catholic Church. I won't work.

James Swan said...

Matthew,

I must say,your comments and back pedalling are excellent examples of why I rarely take the time to interact with you.

You barge over here with both guns blasting at anything that moves, and you never hit anything.

Two "spot on" observations of Bellisario, James. I pray he takes time to deliberately reflect on his statement(s). He's locked in now...no wiggle room, no escape.

Matthew Bellisario said...

What?

twoabsolutes said...

Is your What? an attempt at trying to wiggle free? Here MB, give this a read:

Now, consider very carefully your statements: Is this another feeble attempt to blanket the whole Church under one person's personal opinion---and: Those who have brains are moving past these things and are not letting them separate a whole group of people from the Church

See the problem you're facing?

Matthew Bellisario said...

Uhh no since James obviously put this video up for one purpose and one purpose only. That is to attack the Catholic Church. That much is obvious. And, by the way, I posted that before he posted his comment. See your problem? Never mind. This blog is waste of time. As soon as good debate gets going he will only lock the post down anyways.

twoabsolutes said...

Thanks for actually demonstrating and confirming assessment.

James Swan said...

Mark Shea appears to have a far different scatolgical vocabulary in his comment section on the post I linked to. Proceed with caution.

A Sippo-like tactical retreat?

We can dream can't we?

This is what I wrote elsewhere on the current controversy:

For years the popes have been dancing to the tunes played by Jews, taking all kinds of steps to appease them. They have written volumes in favor of Jews; they have spoken again and again in favor of Jews; they have worshipped in Jewish temples just to make the Jews happy, one fellow makes a foolish comment and everyone forgets what the popes have done, written, and spoken in favor of the Jews. Is this world made for Jewish domination?

Again, the world loves darkness. Everyone, including our antogonists here, forgets the great effort made by popes to reach out to the Jews and flows with the wind of hatred against the Church. People knew the man said what he said; why did they not go after him? Why are they going after the pope; what did the man (pope) do?

It seems to me the Jews want nothing but domination of even the vatican. The Church cannot declare her member a saint without the Jews dictating who should or should not be a saint. This is getting out of hand, period.

Rhology said...

It has finally dawned on me. Dozie IS this Williamson guy. They're the same person.

Dozie, consider yourself self-labeled. Please, spoon-feed us some more bigotry. I'm hungry.

Dozie said...

"Dozie, consider yourself self-labeled. Please, spoon-feed us some more bigotry. I'm hungry."

Yes, I speak the truth and if you see bigotry in my post, feel to point it out. In any case, the Jews give the Catholic Church a lot of hell. They seem to insert themselves in every decision the Church makes and if what the bishop said was said against Catholics, it would not make any kind of news. However, the Jewish dominated media has an agenda against the pontiff, who is the only person I care to defend.

So there are no holocaust deniers in the reformed church? Well, guess who said the following in "The Institutes of Biblical Law?"

"The false witness borne during World War II with respect to Germany (i.e., the death camps) is especially notable and revealing. The charge is repeatedly made that six million innocent Jews were slain by the Nazis, and the figure - and even larger figures - is now entrenched in the history books. Poncins, in summarizing the studies of the French Socialist, Paul Rassinier, himself a prisoner in Buchenwald, states: 'Rassinier reached the conclusion that the number of Jews who died after deportation is approximately 1,200,000 and this figure, he tells us, has finally been accepted as valid ... Likewise he notes that Paul Hilberg, in his study of the same problem, reached a total of 896,393 victims'.


"Very many of these people died of epidemics; many were executed."

But that's just the tip of the iceberg with the reformed isn't it. Be honest with yourselves, your church has many people that believe that blacks were better off under slavery, That women who are raped are only recieving their just reward from God, and or knowingly steal ministries from persons by switching contracts.

If you reformed are gonna point the finger at others you best start cleaning your own house.

This isn't the point, never has been. If you scroll up the comment box, I stated:
