When people get tired of modern life and yearn for the languid bygone age of genteel manners where everyone knew their proper place and there wasn’t all this talk of ‘equality’ and ‘rights’ and so on that give so many people uppity ideas, many may tune in to Downton Abbey for a refreshing breeze of nostalgia. As for me, I go over to the website The Thinking Housewife where I can be assured that right thinking will prevail and old-fashioned values upheld.
I went over there recently and was not disappointed. In a recent posting, pope Francis, Cardinal Dolan, and other members of the Catholic hierarchy are accused of shameless pandering to Muslims by implying that Muslims and Christians worship the same god. The writers don’t mince words: “May the Pope, the theologically liberal Evangelical “leaders,” and all other heretics of the true Church be brought to their knees in repentance and contrition for their blasphemy against the Holy Spirit; Lord have mercy on them.”
Francis and Dolan had better watch out. When even ardent traditionalists like those at The Thinking Housewife think you are destined to go to hell for heresy and blasphemy, you are in big trouble.
