Charest, Bellemare and the London Bus Ad Campaign.

So it seems that Pope Benedict's visit to England has ruffled a few feathers,..the muslims? Nope. The atheists,..uhh not really. The Holy Father has irritated the 'progressive' catholiks(spelled intentionally that way...)and subsequently they have launched a campaign worthy of a Dennis Miller style rant exposing their ignorance as well as their intellectual acumen. Some bus ads read, 'Pope,.Ordain woman now!' while still others read 'Pope,.allow contraception now!' While the tone is somewhat authoritative, it would seem England has bigger problems to worry about. Oh let's see, the Archbishop of Canterbury backing Islamic Sharia law for one, (Hey liberals, where were you on that one?), coupled with growing secularization essentially paving the way for a future islamic state. On another blog, I read about us 'orthodox' Catholics starting ads of our own mirroring some of the requests (commands) made by these liberals to the Holy Father. Now we are all aware that the Catholic Church's dogmas are not open to debate, since they are in accord with Biblical as well as sound reasoning and discernment. Some are also based on Natural Law.,..Hey liberals, do you know what happens when a man ejaculates inside a women? Well,.the possibility of new life!! Do you what happens, when people try to physically express their love another way? (ie two men, two women,..etc?) Nothing, possible disease, resulting in openness to death. (Individual as well as cultural) Don't take my word for it, check out Europe's growth rate, and ask yourself whether or not the contraceptive industry/homosexual agenda has anything to do with it.

So let's make some ads!! I'll start. (credit Jimmy Akin's blog,..but theses are my own)

-'Pope,..Abolish winter now!, Its too cold and discriminates against summer!'

-'Pope,..Allow men to give birth now! We are entitled to motherhood as much as women!'

-'Pope,..Allow people to fly by natural means now! We should given equal opportunity alongside birds, insects and bats!'

I think you get my sarcasm...moving on.

Domestically on the Quebec/Canada front, I was asked my opinions of the Marc Bellemare case against the Quebec government and premier Jean Charest. It would seems back in 2003, Bellemare was pressured into appointing Quebec judges by Charest and some influential liberal organizors, namely construction businessman Franco Fava. My comment rests not so much on the integrity of the premier, we are after all talking about a man in his third mandate, and a former minister who is only now coming forward. Did it happen? I really don't know. What I find truly interesting is the lack of opposition pecking at the premier to undermine his credibility! Then I found out that the leader, Pauline Marois is on vacation! bahahaha!!! Wow, the separatists never cease to amuse me!

To conclude some more mail regarding questions,..(I paraphrase everything, if you've asked me a question via email, I have responded, but I ask that you would put your name, otherwise, it will be 'Hey Anonymous..'

-'What caused you to be such a staunch defender of the Catholic Church?'

Ans: Read my blog. A simplistic answer, but you'll find some of my testimony.. :)

-'Why the Transformers theme?'

Growing up, the Transformers were part of my childhood. As an adult I quickly drew a parralel between the character of G1 Optimus Prime and Aslan the Lion from the Narnia series. (CS Lewis) Both were archtypes of Christ figures. Prime laid down his life for the autobots. Besides, I think they're cool!!! : )

Agnus Dei,.qui tollis peccata mundi,...dona nobis pacem.

Politics and Religion,..the Continuation...

Back once again with another of my more religious based opinionated tirades directed towards the lefty loonies still controlling chancery offices and in some cases the Bishop's chair itself. Two events marked me this week and subsequently were amplified by Michael Voris' Vortex commentaries. It would seem two Bishops came to the forefront for extremely different reasons. Without going into detail, (namely naming them) the Bishop of Nashville decided to publically reprimand a priest who gave an interview saying some pretty ridiculous stuff. All I can say is THANK GOD! The situation occurred when a renegade priest (heretic/dissident) claimed that the Pope should apologize for the Church's teaching regarding human sexuality( no shock there, that agenda is usually the heretic's first target...) Needless to say the Bishop to credit, demamded that the priest retract his statement or face consequences.

The second situation occurred in El Paso, whereby a priest defended Church teaching and was corrected by his Bishop for not being tolerant, charitable, y'know the rest rest of the liberal buzzwords that the social justice (marxist)crowd like to peddle around. So in this situation the priest is being called on the carpet for adhering to the Magisterium. I invite all readers of this post to fast for the Bishop in question, oh hell,..I'll say it,...To grow a friggin set of Balls!!!! Think of the Apostles going to their death in the coliseum, they never watered down the Faith in order to be charitable for whatever New Age, Call to Action, Catholics United for a Common Good, National Catholic Reporter bulls---oops, getting carried away. I think you get my point. Every one of these 'groups' creates there own Jesus to softsell the Christian reality, the Cross!!!

Cardinal Ouellet, a fellow Canadian and Quebecer is now in charge of helping choose the World's Bishops. So that being said, here is a little note to the liberal mindset who read this blog, (you know who you are, the people who don't leave commentaries, but instead flood my personal email box with 'hatemail' instead of 'dialogue,' your favorite buzzword!)


I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your 'ilk' a happy extinction! Does that sound harsh? Thank-you to Fr McBrien, Sr Joan Chittister and the rest of the Looney Tunes Cast for some of the most absurd ramblings of subjective thought ever put on paper! Let's see, McBrien said that Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is a step backward!!! Both Spiritually (how) and intellectually, (Yeah,..Jacques Maritain practised Adoration,..nuff said) that was a real gem! Or Joan Chittester, the Popessa, with her infallible declarations.(women's ordination) Then there is the Pope of Dissidents himself, Fr Hans Kung, the only man able to a 700page opus about Muhammed, and still the reader can't find the thesis! This is education! I thought education was studying a series of 'effects' back to the 'causes.' Oh right, that's closed minded! Anyway, its been nice knowing you, whether you schism or not in 2011 remains to be seen.


To conclude, this post was a little eccentric, perhaps more so than usual, but like a coakroach, a light needs to be opened so that these hippie/socialist/subjectivists can scurry back to there darkened corners.

I promise to be more upbeat next time!

St Peter,..(the real 'Rock!!' if you smellaaa what Benedict XVI is cookin!)....Ora pro nobis!

Back From the Abyss...

First off, thank-you to everyone who kept me in their prayers during my 'desert' time, my life underwent some changes and consequently I needed to reassess my journey from both a faith perspective as well as a medical one. I needed time to recharge my batteries and spent several days at prayer and meditation undergoing a complete auto evaluation of my life up to this point. To summarize the Faith perspective involves a promise to God made about three years ago, regarding the 'call to holiness.' In short, I was discerning whether or not I would pursue the idea of priesthood. From a traditional standpoint, this vocation should be a part of every male Catholic's life journey at some point in his life or another. After concluding that this was not my vocation, it still did not change my 'call to holiness,' and subsequently what began as a spiritual acorn was now turning into a plant. Slowly parts of my lifestyle were beginning to change and I was getting labeled 'rigid' and 'reactionary' all the while trying to balance my family, friends and my girlfriend whom I'm sure it must have been painful for. The guy she met was dying and in his place was a rigid conservative would who was not afraid to tackle the most politically incorrect of situations from abortion to gay marriage, stem cells, you name it! During this time, a huge spiritual honor was bestowed upon me,..my cousin whom I consider a sister asked me to become Godfather of the most beautiful little girl in the world, her first born. Let's face it,.today's godparent looks upon his/her calling as a mere exercise in symbolism, baptism to appease grandma and grandpa. As I discerned whether or not to accept this responsibility, I would seek out Spiritual direction to determine whether or not I was able to do this. Again, another promise was made, that should I not be called to have kids of my own, I would,to the best of my ability try to show a strong Catholic masculine presence,.and as best I could try to live out this 'call.' (My Goddaughter will be marrying a good Catholic doctor who will also serve as a permanent Deacon at the local parish, anything else will not be tolerated!! lol!! Seriously, I can be intimidating,..scroll down and look at my picture!!!lol!!)

From a medical perspective, this has caused me to suffer a nervous breakdown. I no longer understand the world and people in it! As I kid, I was given the so-called blue print regarding what the world considers success, and to a certain degree, I achieved it by age twenty-five. Yes, I still live at home, but so what? I'm an only child with parents who love me, but are getting older, can drive a car the same way a chicken can fly and really don't understand technology or the internet!! (I have been called during the day in order to come back home and put on a DVD for them!) In the end, I ran out of gas, because there just wasn't enough of me to go around, and my usual secular 'outlets' for stress no longer appealed to me.

They say, that God doesn't give you anything you can't handle, well when your in the middle of that 'anything' you begin to question. Looking back however, I can see that through my own free will, I was making choices, (painful ones) which were for the greater 'good.' God, in His infinite wisdom knew I was about to mentally collapse and put in place a safeguard, a friend whom I met at my uncle's gym, came with me on some freelance work and has since my medical leave taken over everthing and two new ventures are starting out because of it. (this series of events reminded me of the poem 'Footprints.') The Gym became a therapeutic environment and on some days my poor uncle became my psychiatrist as I tried to piece together what the heck my 'calling' in life was/is.

For right now, all is well. Yes, I am medicated and will remain that way for quite some time. My immediate concern is my health and trying not to 'breakdown.' I balance my time between personal training, and slowly am easing my way back to SEO work and marketing. (BTW, just found an exciting new artist,..check this out, she is local talent!!!! hehehe! www.suelamusic.com ) I put up a link in the 'links' section...

To conclude, so many projects, so little time,...the life of an individual cursed with a type 'A' personality!! By the way, a few readers sent me some questions regarding this site and I think that now is as good a time as any to address certain things. All questions will be paraphrased!!!

1. Why the Ads on the site?

Although 'Confessions' is first and foremost a blog about seeing the world through the eyes of a Catholic man trying to live out his faith,.there is nothing wrong with moneytizing anything. Google provides the script and based upon my posts which are primarily socio-political or religious in tone will paste ads on the site accordingly. An adsense campaign is a great way to generate a passive income stream while blogging.

2. Are you a personal Trainer?

The short answer is yes!!! Some of my links and posts involve personal training and lifestyle design. Diets, resistance training as well as another contact can be reached though the links on the side of the page. The gym where I am based out of is called Prestige Fitness and is located in Montreal, Canada.

3. Are you the same guy who operates 'Prime Wrestling Montreal?'

I get this a lot. Yes, I am that guy. Pro wrestling has always been a passion of mine since childhood. I was an NWA guy,.Flair, the Horsemen, Road Warriors, Dusty Rhodes, you name it!

4. Who is Optimusmastro?

This question is my favorite. The answer is me!!! Well, an extention of my personality with the volume cranked up to 10!!! My quote from a facebook,.is a thomist thinker expressing himself with prowrestling edge. Being Catholic doesn't mean God takes away your manhood!!!!

Well,.that's all for now


St Peter and St Paul,........Ora pro nobis!
