Nonum Anniversarium

Because I was so busy I actually managed to let yesterday pass without noting that two days ago, June 29th, was the ninth anniversary of the founding of this blog. Has it really been almost a decade? That is just...insane.

Thank you to everyone who has helped contribute to this blog and website, both past and present: Anselm, Maximus, Noah, John, Amanda, Wes, and all the rest. And especial thanks to you, the readers!

I apologize my posts have been scarce as of late. I am unimaginably busy. But you'll be happy to know that yesterday I recorded three more videos in the series on homosexual so-called marriage that I begun back in August of last year (see here). These videos should be available by the end of the month. The subjects of the three new videos are the role of religion in public life, cooperation in objectively sinful acts (vis-a-vis Christian businesses assisting at homosexual so-called weddings), and whether homosexual marriage is a civil right, which is just a video version of this essay I posted on the website.

Hopefully I will have more time in the future to get back into the swing of things. I also want to thank my friends who have promoted this blog over the years and allowed me other venues for writing, especially Ryan Grant of Athanasius Contra Mundum/Mediatrix Press, and Richard Aleman of Distributist Review, and anyone else I am forgetting.

I will remember you all in my Holy Hour tonight.

Why are the American Catholics so pathetically obsessed with the sodomites? Is there any logical reasoning behind it? The mass-murder of abortion doesn't conjure half the indignation and lamentation of perversion among the unumsex, and the infinitely more fundamental and grievous fault of our society of divorce, promiscuity, and perversion among all is humiliated with a shrug. Poor demon. How come this specific perversion and sin of 'homosexuality' doesn't make the Christian battle-weary as the other common sins in our society? My one answer would be that the poor sodomite is clearly distinguishable and has unknowingly become the flag-bearer of everything else that is wrong in the eyes of the Christian; a sort of last-stand for the righteous after many battles lost, and one that is undertaken with some comfort.

"Novum" means "new." Did you mean "nonum," which means "ninth"? For some reason, Latin words want to be mistyped. I say this as someone who has a Ph.D. in classics; I've made elementary mistakes in posts that people read. It's a curious thing. I find that checking a Latin dictionary before posting is almost always helpful.

Anyway, congratulations on your blog's anniversary!

Ugh. I have done that so many times when posting in Latin. Thanks!

Counfunded Carl: Because they are leading the rest of the modern sins. They are de flag and the point of the spear. "The Persecution" will begin because of them.

And they are the falsification of the marriage, the image of the marriage between Christ and the Church.

That's evidently false seeing as the descent of the modern world with all its sins began long before homosexuals took any sort of prominent place, unless you want to claim that every anti-Christ, despite their main and manifold sin, were all secretly homosexual. What you express seems to fit well with my suggestion that: "the poor sodomite is clearly distinguishable and has unknowingly become the flag-bearer of everything else that is wrong in the eyes of the Christian". I find it an absurd thought to believe that the persecutors sword to penetrate our bodies is likely to come from the very small group of sodomites rather than the very vast group of who's perversions and problems are everything but that sin.

Why is the "falsification of marriage" so important? To quote my original comment again: "The mass-murder of abortion doesn't conjure half the indignation and lamentation of perversion among the unumsex." That's happening -- right now -- in all our countries. Why is the "falsification of marriage" so important when marriage has already been dragged, beaten, raped, hanged, drawn, and quartered? Why is throwing the pieces on the grill such a care? -- "... one that is undertaken with some comfort..."

Only in a select few cases is the abortive procedure argued to be morally virtuous and good. In most cases it is either a 'necessary evil' or 'morally neutral'. Of course, a far more serious, and I would argue capital crime without question, but the sodomy movement is a little different. It fill very well that prophesied role of 'Woe unto those that call evil good".

Congrats on the anniversary!
