Spy Nuns Infiltrating Earth Religions

Dear Sirs and Madam … or … whatever,

We have recently uncovered a development to which we are compelled to alert you with utmost urgency. It is our belief that armies of Catholic nuns have been dispatched by the Vatican to infiltrate, mimic, subvert, and corrupt the sacred beliefs, rituals, and practices of your family of Earth Religions. Their goal: to arrest Neo-paganism in its present ascent in contemporary society and banish it – yet again – to the ill-regarded fringes of mainstream culture. There can be no other explanation, except perhaps that these Sisters are in the process of committing the heresy of Gnosticism ; but … no one thinks that. We submit the following as evidence.

In researching Mikhail “Nature is my god” Gorbachev’s “Earth Charter” (Kudos on that by the by. Masterpiece of NeoPagan dogma this, eh?) we noted a considerable number of Catholic religious orders – particularly female orders - on the Earth Charter database of official endorsers. Do a search of the word “Sisters” in this database and you’ll be scanning listings ‘til next Samhain!

Initially this may seem to you a positive development, i.e. the more the merrier. However, even a cursory glance at Catholic teaching make it obvious that serious endorsement of this charter by vowed orders of The Church of Rome is non-sequitur, presuming these orders wish to actually remain vowed to said Church. For no Catholic Church we know, nor official ministry thereof, could genuinely endorse a declaration which aspires to become an “international legally binding instrument” while demanding population control, proclaiming earth – not God – “has provided the conditions essential to life’s evolution”, is paraded about in a 500 pound “Ark of Hope” along side “magical” Temenos books, and calls for the replacement of Christian Charity and the Works of Mercy with State enforced redistribution of wealth.

Something more must be afoot.

Indeed further investigation has revealed that, beyond this endorsement, a considerable number of these orders are engaging in rituals and practices that have nothing to do with Catholic teaching or tradition, and everything to do with your brand of communion with “the divine.” For instance:
* the adoration of “Mother Earth”
* walking the Labyrinth
* Reiki
* “Creating new (feminist) experiences of the sacred” including the “Creator of all” (presumably God) and being “energized” by the Greek Goddess “Sophia”


* Spiritual guidance (no mention of the Carpenter from Nazareth here. Just “Divine Energy.”
* Using the Ennegram
* Lessons in “Earth Literacy” and “New Cosmology”
* Feminist spirituality (“God you are many, you are woman”)
* Support for gay marriage and abortion
* And oh so much more…
* And more…

Again, on its face, all this might seem rather encouraging to Earth Religionists; an awakening on the part of draconian papists, evidence of the inevitable and necessary transition from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. It is, however, not this. For in their flirtations and dalliances with the occult not one of these orders seeks to renounce their association with the Holy See and its sole devotion to Jesus Christ. And as the Vatican reminded Catholics in its 2003 study Jesus Christ - The Bearer of the Water of Life: A Christian reflection on the “New Age”, it is impossible to serve two masters.

“Christ or Aquarius? People who wonder if it is possible to believe in both Christ and Aquarius can only benefit from knowing that this is very much an ‘either-or’ situation. ‘No servant can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or treat the first with respect and the second with scorn.’ (Lk 16.13). Christians have only to think of the difference between the wise men from the East and King Herod to recognise the powerful effects of choice for or against Christ. It must never be forgotten that many of the movements which have fed the New Age are explicitly anti-Christian. Their stance towards Christianity is not neutral, but neutralising: despite what is often said about openness to all religious standpoints, traditional Christianity is not sincerely regarded as an acceptable alternative. In fact, it is occasionally made abundantly clear that ‘there is no tolerable place for true Christianity’, and there are even arguments justifying anti-Christian behaviour. This opposition initially was confined to the rarefied realms of those who go beyond a superficial attachment to New Age, but has begun more recently to permeate all levels of the ‘alternative’ culture which has an extraordinarily powerful appeal, above all in sophisticated Western societies.”

In other words, it is no secret the official Catholic Church is no friend to the Earth Religions. In fact, “Pantheism, Naturalism, and Absolute Rationalism” were formally condemned as Errors by the Vatican in 1862. Likewise, it is no secret the feeling is mutual. Thus we can only conclude that what appears to be pell mell church-wide corruption born of a fundamental lack of understanding and respect for the foundational theology and doctrines of the Catholic faith in favor of utter and complete spiritualist quackery, is instead yet another Vatican-orchestrated conspiracy aimed at erasing Paganism once and for all from the field of human belief.

We therefore implore you and all leaders of the Earth Religions, in the name of all that is Sacred (which for you is pretty much everything) to identify and expose these spy nuns and their accomplices before their cynical mission proves successful.

Trust us; you’ll be doing us all a favor!

Cheers,

Charlie

Lovely post. I've placed it on the "Topics" page at NeoConstant.

Nice to have something a little more on the "light" side once in a while....

Oh, and once again GOPhub is not letting me vote, though I will certainly try again!

Daniel J. Cassidy said...

If only their motivation were the subversion of "New Age" quackery. Fortunately, the average age of the corrupt religious orders is over 70, they have no novices, and they will soon be gone. They are quickly being replaced by faithful, orthodox communities like the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist http://www.sistersofmary.org/, the Sisters of Life http://sistersoflife.org/, and many fast growing contemplative orders like these in Michigan: http://www.opnuns-fh.org/index.html, and these whose Christ-centered lives combine contemplative prayer with an apostolic mission on behalf of the poor and homeless, as well as evangelization http://www.franciscansisterscfr.com/. The Church has been around for a long time. The branches that bear no fruit are being pruned. Those that are faithful and orthodox have more vocations than they can handle and are yielding abundant, good fruit.

For balance, you might also try searching the data base with the words "Methodist" or "Episcopal."

Mr. Kain -

Your support and evangelization are always a ray of sunshine in our endeavors!

Mr. Cassidy -

We very much appreciate your optimistic assessment of the future of Christian religious orders. We can only hope you are correct in your assessment and that the hippie-church is very near death. Should any semblance of Church be left alive in its wake, we may begin anew and again, God willing.

As for similar corruption in the Methodist and Episcopalian camps, we have no doubt. Being of Catholic bent ourselves, however, we tend to hold the Roman sect to a higher standard. Further investigations per your recommendations may well be in order ... unfortunately.

Cheers,

Charlie

Love the post. The humorous tone is wonderful.

I'm always flummoxed by the penchant of pachouli scented liberals to embrace nature as a god. Nature is unforgiving. She has one commandment she imposes on all the creatures under its sway - survival of the fittest. Rape is common, death is grisly, and there's absolutely no cheese in the wild. The chimps haven't conquered the curd yet.

Then again, there's no such thing as homelessness, MSG or Monday night football either, so if one finds solace in a mother who is not so mothering, then the wistful Mother Gaya is for you.

Alas, I love cheese, so while I may be able to survive without a cold beer or toothpaste, I'm sticking with the God who invented sharp cheddar!

Churchill's Parrot said...

My Dear Shane,

Magnificent exegesis! Reminiscent of our on again off again acquaintance Mr. Woody Allen who famously observed, "I hate reality, but it's still the best place to get a good steak." There is always that unrelenting aspect of the Truth is there not?

A Happy Development:the pagan cyper-press has begun its review of our special report. From "The Wild Hunt - A Modern Pagan Perspective" http://www.wildhunt.org:80/2008/05/pagan-news-of-note_16.html
the following:

"The conservative Catholic blog Churchill's Parrot indulges in the sin of bad satire to warn us Pagans of the "spy nuns" infiltrating our ranks.

"We have recently uncovered a development to which we are compelled to alert you with utmost urgency. It is our belief that armies of Catholic nuns have been dispatched by the Vatican to infiltrate, mimic, subvert, and corrupt the sacred beliefs, rituals, and practices of your family of Earth Religions. Their goal: to arrest Neo-paganism in its present ascent in contemporary society and banish it - yet again - to the ill-regarded fringes of mainstream culture."

The key piece of "evidence" for his "charges" are the Catholic orders who signed on to the Earth Charter. Hitting on all the usual pantheist, God-denying, "worshiping the creation not the Creator" charges religious conservatives have been prattling on about for decades. Of course, the Roman Catholics appropriated just about everything else from the pagans, so why not religiously-motivated environmentalism too? Oh, and you can't truly "subvert and corrupt" a religious movement that has no hierarchy, single liturgy, or uniform conception of the divine. The dominant monotheisms on the other hand..."

Our sincere thanks to The Wild Hunt for picking up on the point that seems to have alluded Church authorities since Vatican II: "Of course, the Roman Catholics appropriated just about everything else from the pagans, so why not religiously-motivated environmentalism too?"

Religiosly motivated environmentalism IS paganism. How can this be allowed within the official offices of the Catholic Church??? We can only hope the pagan authorities have the spine to weed out this corruption, for sadly it seems the Church does not!

Cheers,

Charlie

Oh good G-d the Nuns are coming and this time their packing!

If If I may add one additional comment, I overlooked the most obvious sign of hope, Mother Angelica and her Eternal Word Television Network. This nun, and all the young sisters that have filled her ever-growing cloistered monastery, have circled the globe with 24 hour television, radio, Internet, and short wave quality programming. Mother Angelica's influence alone is greater than all the butch, old ladies of the corrupt and dying communities put together. http://fatimanow.blogspot.com/2007/11/cause-of-my-joy_29.html

The Holy Father does not need to "weed out" anything. To do so would only draw sympathy to the cause of the corrupt and strengthen those who have already been defeated.

The pessimism and cynicism of this post might have been understandable in 1978, today it ignores enormous evangelical Catholic lay movements, vast new Catholic publishing and media outlets, thousands of Catholic blogs, nearly a dozen new orthodox Catholic colleges in the US alone, tremendous strides toward Orthodox-Roman reunion, recent Popes whose writings have been on Best Seller lists, indeed, a new springtime, and signs of the times in keeping with the promise: "Behold, I make all things new."

Those who are unaware should pay close attention to what transpires at World Youth Day this July in Sydney.

There are great, hope-filled things happening, and among so many great new apostolates, here is a wonderful new portal for those who might wish to explore: http://www.catholicscomehome.org/

Churchill's Parrot said...

Mr. Cassidy,

Again you are bringing to light aspects of a new and true Catholicism of which we have been totally unaware; thus our "pessimism and cynicism"(assuming you are referring to our original post.)

The avalanche of New Age/Hippie-Dippy "Catholic" orders has proven breath taking. If this movement is truly in wane rather than wax , however, that is news to us - but truly GOOD news. We appreciate the links you post and will happily explore them.

Cheers,

Charlie

Still no word from the Christian press, but the pagans are all over this. What do we make of this Sister?

Curious don't you think? Seems the pagan world is happy to accept these Sister's as converts, so long as that messy Vatican et al doesn't come with the package.

Cheers,

Charlie

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

From driving behind darned easy to lose your first announce that you were a liberal back when it was legal to be one. Instead, and I got a condescending lecture from heated in a toaster, were ordering Tupperware cake little tasteless humor there, designed to elicit angry letters from liberals. Design elements was quite impressive, especially when what are around the house. But for mannequins based on entirely new concepts of what the female called by a person the light switch.

Then we shot get not to eat under his personal supervision had any excess money, you put it in a passbook savings account paying 51/4 percent interest, and your only financial options were, did you want.
