Five Pentecost Sunday Thoughts Under the Fedora

Posted: June 5, 2022 by datechguy in Uncategorized

Today is Pentecost Sunday, one of the worst days in the year for those who hate Judeo Christian values because it’s not only the birthday of the Church when the Holy Spirit comes upon the Apostles and they begin to preach the good news but it’s also comes from the Jewish feast of Pentecost commemorating when Moses gave the Jews the law which is one of the cornerstones that Christian belief is built on.

Christ promised that when it came to his church “the gates of hell would not prevail against it”. Given recent events some might have doubts on that but a church that has survived Hitler, Stalin, Napoleon, the Black Death the reformation, Attila the Hun and the Islamic invasions of Europe will be able to handle Biden, Obama, Pelosi and any number of drag queens.

Pentecost Sunday is one of the few weekends where the vigil mass has different readings than the Sunday Mass. I was surprised to see that they had revised the readings for the vigil mass to add three additional readings to make it look more like the Easter Vigil. The Pope has also added a feast for Monday, Mary the Mother of the Church.

These little tweaks are generally a good idea as they tend to address current needs while preserving what is already there.

Nancy Pelosi went on Morning Joe defending her abortion position and noting that abortion was not mentioned in the bible, a rather disingenuous argument as the practice was specifically forbidden by the Hippocratic Oath until late last century. What’s more interesting is her invoking Matthew on feeding the hungry etc. I note the attempt o change this responsibility from the individual who has a soul to a government that doesn’t.

She is the perfect illustration of a story I was once told by a longtime pol concerning some advice he was given when he was young: Politics is a living for you, it’s how you make your money, if you manage to do something for the people, that’s a nice bonus but it’s about making your living.

Pelosi and her family have been exceedingly good at making a very comfortable living out of “compassion” paid for with other people’s money.

One of the realities of God is that if you ask him to leave you he will back away until invited back.

We pushed God out of our schools and they have fallen to the point where sending your child to a public school is practically child abuse.

The day will come when he invited back and when we do he will be there.

Until then it will be a desolation.

Finally In addition to Pentecost Sunday Today is also game 2 of the NBA finals with the Boston Celtics facing the Golden State Warriors.

The Celtics 4th quarter comeback in game one was one of the biggest shocks I’ve seen in such a game, The Celtics have made a season of doing the unexpected but now when stuff like this happens I can’t help but wondering where the money was bet these days.

I suspect I’m not the only person who thinks this way, but you want to push gambling in sports, that’s what you get.
