Hey, boyos ...
You know I like & respect all you guys here (A2N aside). This is a great place to hang with a bunch of dudes I have mostly never met. But I'm going to drop a RUBE LENGTH post here on the abortion issue again, so if you don't want to hear it, or read it, feel free to stop reading or not reading it now. Fair warning, brothers. After this one, I may mention it if someone else does, but nobody here needs to read me on this issue if they know my mind already, especially after this small novel I'm about to drop. I don't want to be that guy, even though I've been that guy before.
My Roman Catholicism has always been a problem for people who only hear my four-letter words and see my seething rage. I realize it seems unbalanced and hypocritical, but I've always been honest about my crudeness. People who don't know many Catholics hear me talk or read what I write and wonder, how can this guy call himself a catholic? Good question. The only thing I have as a reply to that is that I've never promised anybody that I'm perfect in any way, and that at best, I'm an honest sinner. But I do go to confession regularly, and I always admit when I'm wrong, which is a lot. And I've changed my mind about a lot of things in my life, but I've been on the same side of the abortion issue pretty much from birth. And it isn't some blind decision that was dictated to me by some pointy hat wearing Dago in Rome.
But long before it was an issue that was discussed at water coolers and by the media who told us all that "most people are pro-choice"... I was vehemently anti-abortion. It was a big topic for me. My family has been strongly pro-life and not just because we were Catholic. I really don't know how it happened, and again it wasn't just the church, but some aspect of the consistency of Christian thought with the right of the unborn to be protected from being killed in the womb has been in the blood of our family going back a long way. We have found journal entries by aunts and uncles and grandparents from the 19th century in our family in New York and elsewhere that address the issue before it was an issue. When Margaret Sanger was going into Italian and Irish and black and Puerto Rican neighborhoods in New York 100 years ago encouraging people who weren't white Protestants to use birth control or get abortions, she was doing it because she practiced eugenics. She of course would go on to found planned parenthood. Good luck reading that on many websites anymore, but it's not a contested disputed statement anymore. It's utter fact, and I knew that since forever because my family was one of the people Sanger went to and handed her leaflets to when my great-grandparents and aunts and uncles were living in New York.
People forget that abortions have been happening since forever, and in many societies, a blind eye was turned towards it. Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, and other ancient cultures long before Christ used mechanical, chemical, and herbal tinctures to hasten fetal death & terminating pregnancies, and usually that had a lot to do with the fact that women had no identity. I'm not unaware of that. In lengthy arguments that I have had over the years with pro-choice people, I often find their completely ignorant of that. I'm the one bringing to their attention that I'm well aware abortion is not a new thing; they of course have been using the rusty coat hanger as an icon of fear for a long time. Now, it's about as genuine and historically factual as unicorns and mermaids. But again, I digress.
Anyway, as I ramble on here .... I opened up a story on Fox today and it precipitated this diatribe. Stories like it will continue, and this one won't be the last one we'll see.
Here's the link ... www.foxnews.com/us/minnesota-pregnancy-center-vandalized-janes-revenge
I'll save you the time if you don't want to click on it....
Jane's Revenge is the new pro-abortion terrorist group in America, and they are vandalizing and threatening the lives of the employees of pro-life and or Christian pregnancy centers. Soon, they WILL kill someone there, just as disturbed pro-lifers have done at abortion providers in th past.
Basically, these pro life pregnancy centers take care of women who are pregnant; they do not counsel nor perform abortions. They provide opportunities for women that don't involve infanticide. There are plenty of other places to get abortions, but the women who go to these centers want to go somewhere that's consistent with their faith. They are reluctant to have an abortion. They make a choice, and in making that choice.
So, these pro-abortion terrorist groups are singling my tribe out and going after them aggressively, and as the article that I linked shows, these terrorists are sad that they didn't do something more violent or powerfully effective than what they already did.
I often ask my students when they get riled up about a topic, "So, is this the hill you want to die on?" I learned that little philosophical question from a now deceased friend of mine, a priest, and a former marine, and the man who baptized my two oldest children. It's a good question to ask yourself when you get upset about something enough to start ranting about it on a message board with (primarily) a bunch of strangers. But then I'm stranger than most of you, and that includes Diablo and Rube, who are pretty damn strange. Anyway...
I'm saying this here to anybody who gives a shit, or who has read this far, and God help you if you have, but this issue of abortion is the hill I will die on if it comes to that.
I hope it never comes to that. I will never be the guy planting a bomb or opening fire in response. That ain't me. But I may be the guy who has to stand there and take a lot of shit and abuse for forming a human wall or praying a Rosary on a sidewalk. I may get arrested or get my ass kicked. I may get picked up by the ears by a VERY strong cop. I'll do what I have to do.
So like I said, this is my short novel, I just wanted to spit it all out here now because I've only seethed about it or dropped in on a few topics and mentioned it with a lot of anger in my heart. It probably came across on the keyboard as insane or even bloviating.
..... I don't want to do that & it's not good for anybody including me to be that way. So I just puked up all of this now for you, and again, I'm not going to do it anymore unless y'all bring it up.
Peace and joy and mahalo.
you should have told the dude to pull out
Newsflash... you aren't a catholic.
You are a protestant.
Just one with a cause.
And if you gonna be a rebel then you can't have a cause.
Or else you just another wannabe liberal.
Even if your cause is conservative.
Your cause doesn't matter.
Fuck your cause.
Of course you gonna rebel against your parents and family and even your religion and your walking talking God on earth.
Because you are a rebel.
On the inside.
Like a caterpillar is a butterfly on the inside until his programming is activated and he is turned on.
Now you say that ain't me jack today but today you don't have wings.
If you had wings I bet you you might wanna be a fly boy.
Thing with this thing you call a choich circa 1922 is a choice in 2022 big boy.
In gangs guys that talk a lot and guys with few connections share one thing in common.
They get sent in first as cannon fodder/sacrifice/tribute to calm the air so the birds of war get enough to go away and the dukes can go back to the status q aka quiet on the set.
Violence like of what you speak is gang related.
Except every gang operates under different logistics.
The gang gang operates the way we all know if we know what's good for us and we wanna get along even if we wanna go along with the gang gang.
And that's where you at.
You don't think you in a gang.
You don't know that's where you at.
Why would you?
You are cannon fodder.
Below your billet.
You will wonder why you have enemies.
Why people hate you.
You will think that.
When everything you been saying is going to be used against you in the court of the boxing marsupial to mark you flourescent green.
Your rival gang of course.
Which is your gang.
Because you claiming an ancient gang over 1 cause.
And you also claiming you are non operational and never will be.
That makes you a liability.
And the war coming looks like its gang vs gang.
Thats the front for washing money and ethmicities clean.
No the war is gang gang vs non op.
Non operationals are those in your own ranks that talk the talk and talk loud.
Those the ones who are handed hot iron from heaven and told where to fire.
There is no catholic like you allowed in Catholicism once the gang wars come up to the surface.
Once they close the books for this cycle everyone not sealed with the mark will be considered a heretic in sheeps clothing or worse.
Why would you wanna get destroyed like that as a pawn in their game?
You don't have to claim something you aren't.
Why follow a man made man like the pope?
When you could could be a god made man.
Take up every cause.
All the causes.
If you dont know what position to take tgen go missionary.
Just dont go ass up for a Roman.
Don't you know YOUR history?
France goes "far right"
of course that's everyone that isn't a devout marxist
hope that wave sweeps the globe enough madness

My gf works in Encino so we try different places to eat.
Can't remember the name of it but there's meathead in this one deli holding court and people are acting like it's royalty.
