Sweatshop Labor Profiteering: One of the Four Sins which Cry to Heaven for Vengeance

The pertinence as to why this article is here at the Marian site is because Defraud-
ment of Laborers of their Wages is one of the four sins which cry to Heaven for

As a quick reminder, Marian devotion does NOT consist in kissy-poo ribbons
& bows w/ flowers on altars.  It's a matter of killing the pain of other while keep-
ing yourself from killing others in the many ways in which you can destroy a per-
son's life.  Such pain-killing is known as works of charity/mercy.  After all, faith
without good works is dead faith, and he who sees that a certain good act is need-
ed to be done and neglects to do it sins.

The point ot Marian devotion is to keep out of mortal sin.  This includes not
being an accessory to such sin ... including defraudment of laborers of their
justly due wages.  If you are against the livable wage, then go to Hell, being
that you're going there anyway, if you die with that sweatshop, slave-wage

It's point is: 1} to soar with the angels, 2} to prevent oneself from being ornery,
hardened, & callous, 3} to be in control of one's senses, while conquering one's
cravings, 4} to be sensitive enough to feel the pain of others, 5} to stay out of

Observing economic justice is a part of Marian devotion.  In fact, the quest to
live according to a valid conscience is a requirement in Marian devotion.

Preliminary Notes: As of January 2015, the
Chinese yuan (the renminbi yuan) was worth
approximately 16 American cents.  Russia's
ruble and India's rupee were worth 1.6 cents,
American. A Polish zloty was worth 27 cents,
American.  The Euro was worth $1.19 US.
In 1986, when the Reagan administration and Congress opened trade with China,
the average Chinese wage was 24 cents an hour.   By 2010, it was 75 cents an hour,
for a Cantonese worker.  Today, the wage continues to depend on the region, and
ranges from $1.23 in Guangxi to $2.58 in Beijing, according to the 2013 law that
mandated the Chinese minimum wage to equal to 40% of the average urban wage.
Yet, there are reports, such as one from Business Insider, which mark the average
Chinese salary at 80 cents an hour.  Thus, we again have inconsistent reporting.

What is known is that there have been worker suicides, threats of collective sui-
cides, rioting, protests, and physically demanding living conditions.  In addition,
Vietnam, with its low wage rate, has become the new China/Bangladesh.  This is
because the Chinese nation is beginning to be a "service economy," as opposed
to a "manufacturing economy."  None the less, it's important to note that the the
Russian minimum wage is approximately $1.04.  Thus, it is projected to become
lower than the Chinese wage, should the 2013 Chinese law be observed.

The minimum wages of other low-waged nations go as follows:

Sierra Leone: 3 cents an hour.   Mali where the French intervened: 27 cents.
Mexico: 61 cents.  Vietnam: $90 to $128 per month depending upon region.
The Philippines: 61 cents.   Pakistan: 51 cents.   Afghanistan: 57 cents.
Armenia: 65 cents.  Nepal: 45 cents.  Nicaragua:  52 cents.  Bangladesh:
Monthly wage went from $38 to $66 recently.  The Ukraine: 91 cents

Other minimum wages go as follows:

Australia: $16.88.  Luxembourg: $14.24  France: $12.22   Ireland: $11.09
The UK: $10.02.  New Zealand: $11.18  The Netherlands:  $10.99
Spain: $5.57   Portugal: $4.19  Taiwan:  $3.88.   Poland: $2.97 

End of preliminary notes.
Americans wear clothing made by overseas sweatshop employees.  Americans buy
appliances made in sweatshop nations.  In almost every American home, you will
found the phrase, Made in China, more often than Made in USA, no matter what
be the category of not-very-durable durable good.

Sweatshop people don't have lives.  Nor were they given any appreciable identity.  
As a result, sweatshop employees would be found with slit wrists, time and time
again.  Eventually came the implementation of the suicide net.  Americans hold 
sweatshop workers in a living death, be these the workers in Bangladesh, China,
Vietnam, Guatemala, El Salvador, etc.  Now, some Americans keep these workers
lodged in this state of slavery out of cowardice, while others do so out of selfish 
negligence.  Yet, others do so out of greed.

Why would anyone want to rule over a humanity that had its humanity stripped
away from itself?  Who wants to rule over a society of humans-made-robot or 
humans-made-animal ... or even humanity-turned-zombie?  The state of those
ruled is a reflection on  the rulers.  The makers of ghettos are ghettos within
themselves, no matter how plush be their domiciles and how high be their
bank accounts.  Concerning the greed part ...

The United States does NOT make money from importing merchandise made by low-
waged foreign sweatshop workers.  It has been constantly losing through this type of
importation.  While Communist Chinese merchandise ships come to America, Ameri-
can dollars goes to Maoist China.  So too is this the case with all other foreign nations 
whose workforce can't afford to buy American products and/or services, in any type of 
two-way, fair trade, economic traffic.  No foreign nation pays the United States to take 
its merchandise.  In fact, the Chinese Communist dictators do not even give Americans 
a commission for selling their merchandise.  

America is not making out like a bandit in a business practice which constitutes a crime 
against humanity.  There is only a small percentage of Americans make out like bandits, 
often sending their spoils to overseas tax havens.  Meanwhile the rest of America finds 
itself on the losing end of the steadily diminishing currency flow, in increments.  This 
chronic loss has been in the trillions of dollars.  This is the trickle-away effect.

A flow of American dollars goes into Communist Dictatorial China, as well to each of 
the NAFTA nations, never to return to the States, without America finding itself in an
increasing state of treasury bond debt to foreign entities.  The money lost in Republican  
Party Economics is called the U.S. Trade Balance DEFICIT.   The total deficit for the  
past 10 years has been $5.929 trillion (2003 to 2012).  The accumulative deficit for the 
past 20 years (for goods & services) has been $7.988 trillion (1993 to 2012).  For goods 
only, the 20 yr U.S. International Trade Balance Deficit has been $9.236 trillion.

That's MINUS $9,839,000,000,000.
          MINUS $7,988,000,000,000.
          MINUS $5,929,000,000,000.

All gone.  Bye bye.  No more.  Au revoir.  Not even a post card.  In addition, sweatshop 
workers threatened suicide, on account of the harsh conditions in the compounds that 
manufacture the products which go to the United States.  This means that Americans  
have become unconscionable slave drivers by proxy, all the while destroying their own 
1 yi jiao
Now, foreign trade is fine, if and only if the foreign workers can afford American pro-
ducts.  That is to say, buying foreign is fine, if foreign occasionally buys American, in
return.  Thus, fair trade is a necessity, in order for foreign trade not to result in disast-
er for one of the two trading nations.  Fair trade requires a reasonably balanced two-
way street of import and export traffic.  

Concerning America, Chinese workers would not have been able to have afforded 
American products anyway, beyond wheat products, in Equitable Foreign Trade, ev-
en if America had not ceased being a manufacturer of household consumer products 
in significant quantities.

Imagine the trade balance deficit money as dollars flowing through a tube into a pro-
tectionist dictatorship or two ... or three.  This costs American jobs.  In fact, this en-
tirely prevents the creation of many American mid-size business start-ups.

The Economic Downside Effect of
Foreign Slave Labor Profiteering

Foreign slave labor profiteering achieves the following results:

- Increases an offending nation's international trade deficit.
- Reduces the same nation's gross domestic product.
- Deceases the offending nation's per capita income.

At this point, view the United States trade balance deficit through
the years, in its trade of goods (not services) with China, alone:

                  U.S. IMPORTS                        U.S. EXPORTS
              from sweatshop China                to protectionist China
        (This is money paid to China)   (This is money paid to the U.S.A.)

2012            $425 billion                               $111 billion
2011            $399 billion                              $104 billion
2010            $365 billion                                $92 billion
2009            $296 billion                                $69 billion
2008            $337 billion                                $69 billion
2007            $321 billion                                $62 billion
2006            $287 billion                                $53 billion
2005            $243 billion                                $41 billion
2004            $196 billion                                $34 billion
2003            $152 billion                                $28 billion

10yr total: $3.12 Trillion                             $663 Billion       
 paid to Slave Labor China               paid to an acquiescent U.S.A.

The NET equals: MINUS $2,457,000,000,000 - That's only trade with China.
This is goods only.

The Total Deficit, as is charted below, is MINUS $5,929,000,000,000. 
This comprises trade with all nations.  This comprises goods and services.

The hypocrisy is that trillions of American dollars stayed in the permanent posses-
sion of the Chinese Communist Dictatorship, in the name of Democracy and
Capitalism, as well as Republican Party Values.

Now, view the total 10 yr U.S. trade balance acct, concerning trade with all nations,
in approximate numbers:

          Concerning GOODS only        GOODS and SERVICES

2012       minus $735 billion                     minus $540 billion
2011       minus $737 billion                     minus $588 billion
2010       minus $645 billion                     minus $500 billion
2009       minus $505 billion                     minus $381 billion           
2008       minus $830 billion                     minus $698 billion
2007       minus $818 billion                     minus $696 billion
2006       minus $835 billion                     minus $753 billion
2005       minus $780 billion                     minus $708 billion
2004       minus $663 billion                     minus $605 billion
2003       minus $540 billion                     minus $490 billion

Total:   minus $7.088 261 trillion         minus $5.929 trillion 
Refer to the following link: 

In addition, the total/aggregate U.S. Trade Balance Deficit for only the month
of November 2012 rose $6.6 billion, to $48.7 billion (for that one month only.)
This means that the Trade Gap Rate rose by 15.9%.  As I have previously stat-
ed, if this Trade Balance Deficit behavior continues, America will be a political
entity in the history books, compared to the Argentina which, at one time, was
regarded a world power.

Thus ends the mystery as to why millions of Americans had the hardest time
finding employment; especially those of a livable wage.

At this point, repeat after me:  "That's a lot of sweatshops."

A Crime Committed upon the Parent
is a Crime Committed upon the Child
and Visa Versa

An injustice thrust upon adults is one that is equally forced upon the children of those 
adults.  Poverty in the home of the parent is poverty in the home of the child.  Sweat-
shop labor imposed upon adults is an evil that also assails children.

'Forced to stand for 24 hours, suicide nets, toxin exposure and 
 explosions':  Inside the Chinese factories making iPads for Apple

And it came to pass, as the first decade of the 21st Century progressed, that right
wing conservative business entities saw to it that religious objects and Christmas 
ornaments would be made in sweatshops.  The people tagged as the hard work-
ing moral majority negated the purpose for the coming of Christ, doing so in the 
name of sacred rites.  All the while,  they made money on interest-bearing instru-
ments and extremely cheap labor, doing absolutely nothing in the process.

And it also came to pass that no Christmas gift was being made at the North Pole 
by elves.  Rather, they were being made in Chinese and Bangladesh sweatshops by 
severely underpaid workers, some of whom applied razor blades to their wrists, in 
order to kill the pain that the Reaganite Moral Majority were collectively inflicting 
upon them.  

And it furthermore came to pass, as the 21st Century progressed, that millions held 
Christianity in contempt, being that millions were deceived into thinking that Ameri-
can Corporate Predatory Greed was the religion of the Nazarene rabbi who was put 
to a Roman death shortly after he drove Money Changers from the Jerusalem Temple.
When the Nazarene entered Jerusalem, the Jews placed palm branches before him.
Within a week, the Romans ended up driving nails into him.  Today, the right wing
masters of hypocrisy and greed crucify the Nazarene anew.

Humanity then became enlightened as to what the Protestant Work Ethic really is.  
It's the incessant practice of using African slaves, Irish Catholic immigrants, East-
ern European immigrants, Chinese sweatshop workers, and similar victims to do 
the Protestants' work for them.  

In the words of an adviser, "Now, that labor's cheap, human life has become cheap.
(in the eyes of right wing moral majority conservatives.)  In the Nineteenth Century, 
the States that comprised the Confederate South used local chattel slavery to achieve 
their hallowed Protestant work ethic.  In the 21st Century, the same States and other 
ones used Slavery by Proxy, as in foreign sweatshop labor profiteering.  It's the same 
Jefferson Davis hypocrisy, done in the name of "States' Rights" and a "Moral Majority" 
which is neither moral nor a majority.


Update:  In the month of August 2011, the Trade Balance Deficit with China, alone,
increased  by 7.42%, to $29 billion.  This is the statistic for one month of trading, in
terms of goods and services.  This was a new record at the time.   In as much, China
came out on top for the 304th consecutive month, in its trading with the United States.
Furthermore, the United States has not had a trade balance surplus in trading with the
Chinese Communist Dictatorship since April of 1986.  This amounts to 24 years and
16 consecutive months of money leaking into a dictatorship, by the billions per month.
America is a leaking ship soon to capsize.  It is now the of 2013.  The United States
has gone 327 consecutive months accumulating a deficit, in commerce with China.

Here is the irony:  In August 2011, corporate greed breaks a new record, to the detri-
ment of the 90% of the rest of America.  The following month began the showdown
with corporate greed, in the form of the worldwide OWS movement.  FoxNews, in a
predictable fashion, defamed the surprisingly peaceful people who elected to assert
their First Amendment Rights.  All the while,  official statistics prove that the First
Amendment people of Zuccotti Park were generally correct.  Greed has been destroy-
ing America all along, and sweatshop importation has been the vehicle doing so.

Now, the most current news (at the time of this writing) is that the monthly Trade
Balance Deficit,, in trading with China, has decreased (narrowed) in February and
March 2013.  In fact, the total U.S. Trade Balance Deficit  decreased.  Yet, it was
still woefully significant ... detrimental to the U.S. money supply.   In January, the
trade deficit in trade with China was $27.8 billion.  In February, it was $23.4 billion
lost to the quintessential sweatshop profiteer nation.    In March, the amount lost to
a China notorious for its civil rights abuses was $17.8 billion.  Money lost to China,
in unfair trade practices, for the first the months of the Year 2013, was $69 billion.


The Laws Against this Type of Profiteering Were
Already on the Books, in United States Federal Law.

It wouldn't have required any courage for any public figure to have stepped forth
and initiate movements designed to end America's complicity with slave labor pro-
fiteering.  This is because laws against it are already on United States law books.  
There's Section 307 of the 1930 Tariff Act, along with the May 2000 amendment 
to that act.   Both are found in 19 USC 1307.   How much does NAFTA conflict 
with this? 

Despite the Law, Sweatshop Labor
Importation Has Been Rampant

There is a loophole in the 1930 Tariff Act.  The law doesn't prohibit the importation 
of indentured/slave/convict/forced labor products "which are not mined, produced, 
or manufactured in such quantities in the United States as to meet the consumptive 
demands of the United States."  In addition, there are recent trade agreements that 
don't require the enforcement of morally needed international labor laws.  This means 
that foreign workers stand in direct jeopardy of being brutally abused, due to no pres-
ent legal recourse, short of the Nuremberg case law authority.  Plus, there is the alle-
gation that the 1930 Tariff Act is not being enforced.  

The evidence is publicly evident.  Sweatshop labor, forced labor, and plantation la-
bor is rampant throughout the modern world in general.  So, is the used of minors
as combat soldiers.  Many products made by laborers defrauded of their wages
have been entering American docks and airports for years.  It's equivalent to re-
ceiving stolen property on a grand scale.  It has robbed America of its money 

The names of the corporations who have capitalized on sweatshop labor have long 
since been posted throughout the Internet.  Some have faced federal lawsuits.  In 
fact, the offending corporations were often household names.  The amount of avail-
able information on this topic is so vast that it would require at least an entire web
page, in order to post the links to it.

When You Liberate Others, You Liberate Yourself

A properly paid foreign worker has a way of increasing product demand for Amer-
can products, even from a third party nation.  For example, properly paid Chinese 
workers might only buy from Europe.  However, the increased European revenue 
might result in Europe importing more from America, thereby bringing income to
America.  Such a thing puts American workers back to work, assuming that the
level of manufacturing will increase in the United States, so that workers will be in
demand.  Such a thing can also enable mid-sized entrepreneurs to either compete 
in smaller scaled markets or more easily enter the ranks of subcontractor, simply by
virtue of increased demand.

Slave Labor Profiteering is Even an Injustice
to the Citizenry of the Nation that Engages in it 

Foreign slave labor profiteering results in unfair advantages over the citizens of the 
nation that practices it.   This is because those who profit from foreign slave labor 
steal economic power from the multitudes, and in the process, they steal multiple 
advantages from their fellow countrymen.   That is to say, they cheat in order to 
get their standing in life, and that is unfair to everyone else.   After all, the average
entrepreneur cannot compete with the low wage advantage that these corporations
use for their selfish gain, at the expense of the US Trade Balance Account and the 
Gross Domestic Product, as well as the per capita income.  Foreign slave labor 
profiteering, therefore, is even an act of violence committed against an offending 
nation's own citizenry. 

A Coast to Coast Crime 

If you deny that you are part of this practice, simply go into your closet and read 
the labels on your clothing.  Then go into your kitchen and read the labels on your 
appliances.  Go next throughout your house, your place of work, and elsewhere, 
reading the labels on the newer merchandise.  If you have any merchandise from 
a sweatshop, then the practice of slave labor profiteering has reached your life.

In addition, if you work for a sweatshop profiteering corporation, you're involved.
You are an accessory to the fact.  This includes what you find under your Christ-
mas tree.


Protestantism, the Great Blackout: the Secularization of the Sacred & an Anti-religion

Another Australian original.
The absence of the sense of the sacred in Protestantism is blatant.  Everyone
sees it.  They see the Protestant preachers wearing business suits, as if Chris-
tianity is the religion of cold, hard cash.  Therefore, religion to these guys is
nothing but a money-making scam.  All in all, the TV evangelist "suits" have
turned the sacred into the secularized profane.

As far as goes Protestantism in its capacity of an Anti-religion, it is a complete
abbreviation of original Christianity which comprised priests, bishops, the sacra-
ments, penance, praying for the deceased in Purgatory, and the moral obligation
to make restitution for sins of theft and deception.  The Protestant doctrine de-
clares that you don't have to go to confession and receive absolution.  You don't
have to be confirmed,  and according to the same doctrine, you neither have to
do any acts of penance or pay people the money you stole from them.  There is
no catechism to learn, because, according to Protestanism, you are your own
pope who can make a doctrine that contradicts any of the millions of other
personal popes.

All in all, Protestantism basically states that you don't have to do anything, except
a ritual that instantly makes you "saved" for all time and eternity.  The great evil in
that ritual is that it denies the necessity of the sacrament of Baptism.  And and and,
the Gospels expressly quoted Jesus Christ as saying, go forth and make followers
of all nations, BAPTIZING them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Thus, each Protestant claims that he knows more than Jesus Christ.

The Protestant Denial of the Need of Baptism for Salvation, replaced by a
simple-minded ritual where you say, "I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord &
personal savior 

Here is Protestant Contradiction #1:  They originally stated that you have to be
baptized again, being that they do NOT believe in the validity of infant baptism.
Then, they say that you merely have to "accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and
Personal Savior," thereby denying that Christ founded an all-encompassing
church that welcomes any living human to join it, and thereby denying that
you must be baptized, in order to be remitted the state of Original Sin.

For those unfamiliar, the "Born-again Christian"  .... aka Protestant ... teaching is
that all you have to do is walk up to "the altar" of a Protestant church and say that
you accept Jesus as you Lord, etc.  This is called an "altar call."  Stop there.

Firstly, Protestant churches do NOT have altars.  They have railings where you
kneel.  An altar is a consecrated piece of furniture where you make a sacrifice,
and in Catholicism and Orthodoxy, Christ is sacrificed under the transubstatied
form of consecrated bread and consecrated wine.  None the less, the Born-Again
Christian ritual is very simple-minded, and it is claimed that, as soon as you say,
"I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and personal savior" you are forever saved.
Thus, they claim that you do not need baptism for salvation, thereby claiming
that the four authors of the four Gospels are liars.

The Protestant Hatred of the Virgin Mary

It's the religion which states that you detract from Jesus by having recourse to the
woman whose blood became his blood.  They say it's the sin of idolatry to have
recourse to Mary, the woman who raised Jesus and knew him better than any
member of the human or angelic race.  They say that it's a sin to ask Mary to
pray for you.  Their hypocrisy consists in the fact that they say that you do
NOT have to stay away from sin in order to not be in Hell for all eternity.

So, let's review:.

                               Q:  Can you pray for me?   ANS: Yes, you can.
         Well, so can Mary.  In as much, I can assure you that her prayers have far
         more effectiveness than yours and mine combined will ever have.  If  I can
         ask you to pray for me  without it being an act of idolatry, then I can ask
         Mary to pray for me without it being idolatry.

The recurring them in all Marian devotion consists in the devout saying:

Holy Mary,  Mother of God, PRAY FOR US SINNERS, now and at the hour of
the death of each of us.  Uniting our prayers with Mary's perpetual act of prayer
is the essence of Marian devotion.

The essence of Marian devotion consists in the following:

You open yourself to realm of angel where Mary is Queen.  Mary then takes
the Child Jesus and places him in your arms, as if you were a visiting shepherd
on the first Christmas night.  Then, when you did, Mary takes you and places
you in Jesus' mystical arms.  Jesus mystical arms is his eternal realm.  Its' the
House of Jacob, mentioned by the Archangel Gabriel during the Annunciation,
where Mary was told that she would conceive and bear a son who must be
named Jesus.  Jesus means "God is Salvation."

In answer to the Born-Again Heresy's Claim that Marian Devotion is Idolatry 

Worship is the act of attributing the beginning and end of your existence to
someone or something.  Those devoted to Mary know that she didn't create
the Heavens and the Earth.  Thus, we don't worship her.  Concerning the Pro-
testant claim that we worship her, only a pervert would come up with that
idea, in the first place.  That wasn't even on our minds.

Furthermore, Jesus and Mary are NOT in competition with each other.  There is
no jealously between the two.  Each one wants to honor the other and each one
wants the other loved by humanity.  They want people to know the love they
see in each other.  Jesus wants you to know Mary and Mary wants you to know
Jesus.  They are one with each other, and infinitely so.  In as much, the greatest
proponent and advocate of Marian Devotion is Jesus, himself.  Not honoring his
mom deeply offends him.

When you honor Mary and/or one or more angels, and/or one or more saints, you
are honoring the God who created them.  When you despise Mary, you despise
Christ and you are actually saying that Christ can't save anyone from his/her sin.
You are saying that he can't keep anyone free of sin when you deny Mary's per-
petual sinlessness.  You're simply saying that God will let you go to Heaven,
even if you are reeking with sin.

In fact, you are saying that he cleanses no one of sin, but merely lets people who
are corroded with sin into Heaven, if they do that silly Southern Baptist church
railing ritual which is erroneously referred to as an "altar call."  Well, that's not
Heaven.  Heaven is NOT a place where you can bask in your lusts with immun-
ity, as the Southern Baptists long since claimed.  Heaven comes from within the
soul where within is the Holy Spirit.  What makes Heaven consoling is the people
in it.  Therefore . . .

When a saint dies, the proper thing to say, upon his/her death, is:

                                                Heaven has just become a better place.


The Great Rupture; Not Great Rapture

"The Holy Father will have much to suffer." - Our Lady, at Fatima.
The Belief in the Great Rapture:  The Ultimate April Fool's Joke.

For those of you living among the sugar sprinkled driveways of upper middle
class American and who insist that Cardinal Angelo Sodano was correct in June
of 2000, in stating that the Dark Days prophesied at Fatima are behind us, know
this:  We've been in the tribulation for years.  It's sixteen years later, and the state
of the World if far more grievace ... with ISIS, mass refugee migrations, drug
slayings, police animosity, pollution in China, national indebtedness, war, war,
and more war which includes the continued war against newly conceived hu-
man life and war against the Laws of Ecology.  The younger generation is a
horde of mindless followers, obsessed with tattoos and gaudy emissions of
chemically-laden air fresheners that trigger violent asthma attacks and cause
testosterone to turn in estrogen via the enzyme aromatase.   If you don't feel t
he pain across the world, then you are one of those who is causing the pain.
The pain got so intense, that it started migrating to Europe.

You have the moral obligation to be part of the effort to right wrongs, and not sit
around, watching gossip television and whatever you do in your sugar sprinkled
lifestyles, as you live in houses filled with the label, Made in China, Made in
Vietnam, Made in Bangladesh, and other slave labor nations, accomplice that
you are.

To start, acknowledge within your mind that, at Fatima, the Virgin Mary dispelled the
notion of the Great Rapture, as was proposed by Nelson Darby circa 1830 and which
was absorbed into the Southern Baptist tent revival mindset.  That mindset still lingers.
Mary assured us that, in end, her Immaculate Heart would triumph, and that an era of
peace would be granted to the world ... not the Southern Baptist world getting beamed
up by Scotty, while the rest of humanity becomes overwhelmed by the wrath of God.

The Southern Baptist world, even today, has shown itself to be a punishment to man-
kind.   After all,  it was the legislators from the Southern Baptist red states who sabo-
taged the US economy, as in the 2008-09 Great Recession that cost people pensions
and homes.  Tennessee congressman, Stephen Fincher, provides one of the many ex-
amples of the predatory nature of the Southern Baptist red state politician.  He thus
far received $3.48 million taxpayer dollars, via farm subsidies, and then he voted to
cut food stamp allotments by $39 billion.

The outrage is that Fincher quoted the Bible, taking out of context a verse from an
epistle of St. Paul, in order to rationalize reducing the food stamp program allot-
ments upon which children and the disabled are dependent.  In doing so, Fincher
created added hatred toward an already hated Christianity ... and added disrespect
for Christ.  People who equate Christ with Stephen Fincher want nothing to do with
Christ.  The Eternal will NOT overlook Fincher's desecration of the scriptures, so
done for his selfish gain.

The hatred, incidentally, is toward the false Christianity of a George Bush II and
Fincher.  In as much, someone needs to inform the public that the doctrines em-
braced by Bush, Fincher, and company were condemn as heretical ones at the
Council of Trent.  This would lessen hatred toward all forms of Christianity.

For those unfamiliar, Pennsylvania native and broken-family by-product, Newt
Gingrich, as a Georgia congressman, manipulated the congress and Clinton into
making NAFTA law.  It did no more than increase America's accomplice status
in the sin of Defraudment of Laborers of their wages.  It happens to be one of the
four sins which cry to Heaven for eventual vengeance.

Then came all-so-saved George Bush II with his prolonged wars, economic crisis,
elevated suicides amongst veterans, disdain for environmental necessities, and ele-
vated consumer prices which is progressively becoming a fulfillment of the New
Testament prophecy, "A day's wages for a loaf of bread."

The Southern Baptist world goes about, causing untold human suffering,from
the congress to the business world.  It then arrogantly thinks that its people are
God's chosen ones who will be swept up and made immune to the very evils that
they, themselves caused ... as in NAFTA.  They cause untold havoc throughout
the world, and then the think that they will no accountability to pay.

For the record, I was in the former confederate south the vast majority of ten years,
for health reasons.  I was even there as recently of April/May 2013.  I experienced
that world at point black range.  I can go into detail, but will be polite at this point.

Protestantism is the epitome of division and anti-unity.

The first mark of the true church comes from the fact that there is only one Christ.
Being that there is only one Jesus Christ, there can only be one faith in Christ.  He
is eternally changeless and does NOT become a different moral code to different
people.  Thus, the true church is of one mind ... united ... in an unchanging belief.
It's not fickle ... frivolous ... or subject to fads.  Yet, it adapts to the weather of the
various age, all the while not deforming the absolutes of the faith that transcend
time, space, and fashions.

This presents a question.  Which religion that professes a faith in Christ is the au-
thentic one, being that there are at least 217 denominations in the United States,
alone, dozens of which profess conflicting doctrines?

ANS:  The one that was here first.  It would be the religion to which the original
apostles, the original martyrs, the second generation apostles, and the martyrs of
Rome belonged.

Rome is the hint, as to which Christian profession of faith is the authentic one.  It
was here first, and it was designated for annihilation and extinction by the ancient
Roman Empire, as well as Henry VIII's England, the French Revolutionaries, the
German Kulturalkamp fanatics, and Soviet Russia, as well as the Boxers of China,
the know-nothings of America, and numerous other political factions.  In the 20th
Century, it was attacked from within by corrupt clerics as vile as Cardinals Dolan
and Dignity Mass Donald Wuerl.  Yet, it didn't collapse.

Jump to the 1830s, a time mentioned by the Virgin Mary, in an apparition to Saint
Catherine Laboure, as very evil times.  Ironically, 1830 was the year when the Book
of Mormon was published, the U.S. Indian Removal Act was enacted, the Belgian
Revolution transpired, and France's July Revolution occurred.  Well, the 1830s was
a time when a new doctrine in the world of Protestantism was presented.  It was
called the Great Rapture.

The world, rapture is a variation of the Greek, for "getting caught up" in something.
This doctrine was the conclusion of an individual who knew Greek.  He was John
Nelson Darby, a minister who left the "Church of Ireland" and founded a group
called the Plymouth Brethren.  He had assistance from Henry Drummond, a bank-
er who founded a religion called the Catholic Apostolic Church.

The belief is that, shortly before the Great Tribulation, God will secretly sweep
up into Heaven those whom Protestants called 'saved.'  This comprises people
who despise the idea of institutional church and who claim that they become
instantly guaranteed Heaven by 'accepting' the Nazarene rabbi as their "lord
and personal savior," entirely hateful of the social aspect of the church, in
disregarding the command, "Love one another as I have loved you."

They believe that a divine vacuum cleaner will sweep them up into Heaven
shortly before the arrival of the Great Tribulation, sparing them of pain and
death.  This is based predominately on a gross misinterpretation of the fourth
chapter of the First Letter to the Thessalonians.   Concisely speaking, they
believe that they will be swept up into the clouds, while Christ meets them
halfway ... literally.

The verse refers to the very end of the world.  Rural Protestants say no.  How-
ever, they contradict themselves by claiming that this rapture will be done by
God in stealth, where suddenly, thousands of automobiles will be left without
drivers, as if the Eternal God is irresponsible enough to let multitudes of cars
crash into human life and property throughout the world.  The New Testament
passage speaks of the event being very much noticed by all ... as in the End of
the World and the Second Coming of Christ. 

   For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command,
   with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. 
   And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, 
   will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the 
   air, and so we will always be with the Lord

The verse speaks of a loudly proclaimed end of the world, where no one is left
clueless.  None the less, the rural protestants claim that all of the "saved" will
be swept up into Heaven, and those going to Hell will be left behind, to suffer
the tribulation.

The first blasphemy of this false doctrine is that it is contrary to the Apostolic
teaching that God only chastises people, in order to convert them ... so that they
will go to Heaven.  It is written, "I chastise the ones I love."  Thus, the tribulation
will be done, so that people will be freed from their attraction to sin.   The equal-
ly sinful Southern Protestants are claiming that they never have to be freed from
their attraction to sin and that there is no need for them to correct their lives.

The other asininity of this false prophecy is that, after the Great Apostasy and
Great Tribulation there will be the symbolic 1,000 year reign of Christ.  Now,
if there are no Christians left on Earth, then who is going to teach Christianity
to anybody?  There is also the need of "witnesses of Christ" to spread the faith.
If all Christians get raptured, then Christianity have forever ended on Earth.

The same scriptural text, the Book of Revelations, describes the eternally blessed
as those who washed their garments white.  This denotes people who actually did
penance and committed acts of charity; not those who did a cult-like ritual in a
rural church where they 'accepted' Jesus as their 'lord and personal savior,' and
then claimed that the sins of their future are forgiven of them ... and that they
never have to do any good works, despite the scriptural passage which states
that faith without good works is dead faith.

This Great Rapture doctrine progressively became popular, because it fit the lazi-
ness of a Protestantism,  Let's review:  It claims that you are already saved and
are not required to do any good work for eternal life.  No confession.  No penance.
No examination of conscience.  No avoiding the near occasion of sin.  No acts of
charity.  No restitution for the damage that your sins caused.  No Catholic action
groups that speak out against social evils.  No charity groups.  No required time
for prayer or true meditation,  etc.  That's Protestantism ... an anti-religion.

Of course, Protestantism, by its nature, is the sin of presumption, in presuming that
salvation is already granted.  Well, if salvation were already granted to you, you
would be in Heaven and not on earth telling people that the Catholics got it wrong.

The danger of today's rural Protestantism is that its adherents now call themselves
Christian, as if they are the true Christianity, linked to the original apostles.  They
used to call themselves ana-baptists, then born-again christians, thereby showing
their dissent from original christianity.  They now present themselves, in all of
their hicktoid crassness as the only christianity.

Study history and you will find that they are self-styled imposters.  They are not
linked to the original apostles.  Rather, they are linked to inbreeding, lynch mobs,
chattel slavery, anti-Catholicism, isolationism, the creation of the native Ameri-
can Trail of Tears anti-federal government sentiments, low SAT scores, lower
wages, pellagra, rickets, gerrymandering, the murder of the Michigan Freedom
Riders, hatred of U.S. Civil Rights acts, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln,
nighttime cross burning, and an extreme hatred for the Chair of Saint Peter.

The truth is that they disfigure the Face of Christ in their severely heretic beliefs;
of beliefs that never existed until 1520 ... then the 1830s.  These people make a
mockery out of Christ, and cause multitude to be repelled by the name of Jesus,
because the multitudes only see the faces of these unclean, rural, isoclationists
who hate the idea of universality and the need to do some type of good work or
another.  They constructed a grotesque caricature of Christianity, and the eternal
God will not overlook the desecration of the True Faith.

When all Hell breaks loose on earth in the near future, these people will be in a
state of shock so severe that they will freeze.  Their haughty arrogance will be
gone.   They will realize that their prayers don't work and that there is no such
thing as the Great "pre-millennial" Rapture.   In fact, every denomination that
heavily promoted the Great Rapture doctrine will dissolve.  The problem is that,
during the oncoming tribulation, the people who believed in that doctrine will
dissolve, also.  God is not mocked.

Incidentally, the Second Mark of the Church

As a review, the four marks of the true church is that its One, Holy, Catholic,
and Apostolic.  Let's go to the Second Mark of the true Church:  It is called
Holy, but the actual meaning is "consecrated" ... set aside for a special and
specific purpose.  What is the special purpose?  ANS:  To convey sacramen-
tal grace and to provide a forum to manifest such grace, as well as teaching
humanity what grace entails and how to stay in the state of sanctifying grace.
The manifesting of such grace is known as Good Works.

Concerning this, heroic martyr, Saint James, stated that faith without good
works is dead faith.  Let's go one step further:  Faith without good works is
a sick joke.

Now for the Third Mark of the True Church:  That it is apostolic.  The apostolic
mark of the church enables the conveyance of sacramental grace.  This includes
the "laying on of hands."  This includes the priesthood ... something real and not
merely ritualistic.  The most evil priest in the history of mankind still has the pow-
er to absolve a person from sin.  The most evil bishop can still ordain and confirm.
For a sacrament to work, it does not depend on the degree of holiness of the priest
involved.  It depends on the infinite perfection of the Eternal God which doesn't
deplete or depreciate.

To profess yourself to be a Christian, while having no belief in the sacramental
power of the priesthood, is eternally deadly.  Fatima seer, Jacinta Martos, young
child that she was, stated, "Without confession, there is no salvation."

Such disbelief in the sacrament of Penance (Reconciliation) is the result of pride,
as well as laziness and the vanity known as spiritual gluttony.  After all, if you ad-
mit that a sacramental priesthood exists, then you are admitting to the need for the
Sacrament of Penance which consists in confessing to a priest and doing peniten-
tial acts ranging from praying to fasting to physically demanding mortifications.
You are thereby admitting that you are not the lord and master of faith, and that
you actually have to do something for eternal salvation.

Those who refuse to admit to the existence of the Sacrament of Penance are too
proud to go to confession.  Plus, there is a sector of the disbelievers think that
confession isn't glamorous enough for effecting an ultra-cosmic experience.
Thus, you have the spiritual glutton involved in damning this sacrament.  The
other sector of disbelievers are simply too lazy to do penance.  Ironically, they
exert more energy in ranting, raving, and damning the Sacrament of Penance
than it takes in doing the penance.

The Forth Mark of the True Church is its Universality, aka its Catholicity.  This
consists in the fact that it is for all who believe, and not only for a small elitist
cult ... or for an elite socio-economic class ... or one race ... or one nationality.
In fact, it is for neither for the bigot nor the isolationist.   It is not for those who
seek to cause division or who seek to create a caste system.  The universality
of the Catholic Church is evident in the fact that it has 22 rites, ranging from
the Ukrainian Rite to the Melkite Rite to the Byzantine Rite to the Maronite
Rite to the Roman Rite to the Ambrosian Rite to the Chaldean Rite to other

Its ironic that, now that the signs of the times show that the Great Chastisement
isthe next logical destiny of humanity, no one is preparing for it.  Years ago, when
people were following Father Stephano Gobbi and Medjurgorje, people were cry-
ing wolf and saying that the sky is falling.  They kept saying that the chastisement
was on the horizon.  It never came.  Now that they have fallen asleep, the great
chastisement is blatantly en route to humanity.  Of Course, Cardianl Angelo So-
dano, in his June 2000 rouse, had multitudes let down their guard.  They still do
not realize that Sodano was covering for Maciel and even false prophet Stephano
Gobbi in the Jume 2000 proclamation which Benedict XVI stated was not some-
thing to which any Catholic is bound to believe.  The events that transpired be-
tween July 2000 and September 2013 prove that we did NOT enter the prophe-
sied era of world peace.

It's also interesting that Pope Francis I designated the nearest First Saturday as the
universal day of voluntary Prayer & Fasting for world peace; September 7.
For the record, Francis had long since been the advocate of the Rosary.

In addition, Saint Louis of Montfort repeatedly spoke as if it went without saying
that there would one day be the conversion of Moslems.  He never mentioned that
there would be the conversion of banal and crass rural heretics who now have the
audacity to call themselves "Christian," even though their way is contrary to the
Christianity that existed from the time of Peter and Saint Ignatius of Antioch,
throughout the centuries.

Do not be deceived.  Test the spirits.  Simply because a person identified himself
as Christian, it doesn't mean he is.  Be on guard for the wolves in shepherd's cloth-
ing.  One such person was the Ayn Rand groupie, Paul Ryan.  He presented him-
self as Catholic, yet he designed a budget which was a sin against distributive
justice.  He attempted to deceive you into thinking that his false doctrine was
Catholicism.  Thus, the American bishops politely made it known that Ryan
was orchestrating a deception.

In conclusion, if you are at the doorway of death, and there is no other priest
around than one you know to have been wicked, get that priest to your side,
for the final sacraments of the church.  His act of mercy toward you might
result in God reciprocating the good deed and granting the priest the grace
of conversion.  It's the power of the sacrament per se involved, and not the
state of the priest's soul that matters.

Concerning this, there is one thing that you absolutely have to understand:
Catholicism is the Kingdom of Mercy.  When you cease habitual sin, you
are having mercy on Christ. When you undo lies, by bringing forth the truth
on a subject, you are having mercy on those deceived.  When you stop an in-
vading army, you are having mercy on the people they are invading.  When
you bring to justice a person who abused authority, you are having mercy on
the power abuser's victims.  When you hold accountable those how retaliated
against whistle blowers, you are having mercy on a number of people.  Plus,
according to St. Francis de Sales, when you pray for the Souls in Purgatory,
you are committing all of the acts of mercy simultaneously.

Protestantism developed laws that punish the least of Christ's brethren, as in
vagrancy laws, etc.  They don't see poverty as a result of unjustifiably high
prices, low wages, a constriction of the money supply, or even seasonal cir-
cumstances.  In as much, the merciless never receive God's mercy.

God needs you to not get "raptured up in the sky."   Instead, you are need-
ed to be instrumental in the conversion of sinners, repairing damage done
in society, and works of charity, as well as the proliferation of the King-
dom of God.  You don't get that done by being beamed up by Scotty.  In
as much, the belief in the Great Rapture should illustrate the hatefulness
& isolationism of those who adhere to it.

The works you do on earth go with you into eternity.  If you do nothing for
the benefit of anyone else other than your good ole boy network, you enter
eternity as an accomplished nothing.  Sin is nothingness, according to Saint
Catherine of Siena ... doctor of the true church.
