Johannesburg Archdiocese- get ready- register- vote

(Scripturelink Voters Guide)

Article by Marc Aupiais

Today I picked up Archdiocesan News, a monthly paper, or of that mix- it encourages our voting from the archdiocese, and tells us to register this current (now today, tomorrow)weekend, while we can. I am registering tomorrow morning, I missed today, and instead, went to confession. I plan to register tomorrow.

Register between 08:00 and 17:00.

Americas Abortion News- Insurance must pay up to help abortion, all restrictions to be lifted, state to fund genocide against unborn- This is the change Obama, who voted for allowing infanticide in failed abortions- Promised quite publically

(Social justice South Africa; How Catholics Should Vote in South Africa: Scripturelink Voters Guide; Chastity South Africa; c.f. EWTN News 07/11/08; CNS "blog" 07/11/08; CBCP News (Philippines Catholic Bishops) 07/11/08)

Article by Marc Aupiais

The man who voted for infanticide and broke promises, but not those about introducing shocking abortion legislation has done it again. Barak Hussein Obama has done something even Saddam Hussein may have bulked at- he has promised to lift all limits on abortion, use American Tax Dollars to fund it, and is to enforce the allowance of legislation to forcibly cover abortive pills on insurance, and add even more money towards sex education in schools. Abortion firm Planned Parenthood was the recipient of many of these promises, and will welcome them gladly, as they already are permitted to teach sex education in schools.

""The winning presidential candidate ran on a nebulous platform of 'change,' but 40 Days for Life provides something far more powerful - hope. Hope demonstrates that, with God's help, hundreds of lives can be spared from death by abortion. This fall, a political battle was lost," said Bereit, "but hundreds of lives were won. I am convinced that those victories will have far greater impact.""(EWTN News 07/11/08)

Most of Obama's votes are interesting. He got a record number of votes in Catholic states, despite the automatic excommunication (Canon 1398 of canon law c.f. Latae Sententiae) against any Catholic who supports abortion- including via voting, forbidding any participation in sacraments or sacramentals. With the new restrictions against conscience, Catholics will probably have to object in some form, even by helping anti-abortion campaigns- so as to not partake in the sin and excommunication as a collaborator.

Abortion fits an enacted legislative definition of Genocide according to the United Nations definition (Article 2 letter d).

40 days for life saved 540 babies from being killed in their last campaign and plan a next session on 25th February next year. One area where activists are opening a center- has more abortion facilities than those to actually give birth to children- this as world population rates are already declining under disease and lowering birth rates. The dangers of globally declining populations are not only seen in areas like Europe, where foreign populations are slowly filling the gaps, and cultures are mixing and being destroyed, but also in retirement plans, and in skills shortages and other terrible problems.

The American President-Elect, Barack Hussein Obama, who has no heritage of slavery,was brought up in Asia, not America, or Africa- and is quite literally African-American, (i.e. half white half Kenyan), also has apparently pledged to appoint pro-abortion supreme court judges in America, and to prevent individual states from preventing abortion, via waiting periods, or parental consent. Americans, like some early bloomers in BEE, have chosen a foreigner to fulfill their race conscious requirements, with many in the "Civil Rights" movement, who fought so hard to prevent discrimination against their own hides- openly supporting the man.

While commentary in the Southern Cross will this week join the secular press in hailing the first "African-American" president in America, even saying that the world will no longer hate them, truly- the populace of the Nation has gained friendship with the world, but at the cost of friendship with God. 50 million children, in America alone- have been unceremoniously, in a battle taking under five minutes, unless they are a bit larger- violently plucked from the womb in the country, and abstinence programs of sex education are at great risk. Only about 10 million Jewish people died in another campaign we may call a genocide- this is about five times the amount- 500% greater an afront, with about 4 to five thousand murders of fetuses, every day.

Barack Hussein Obama promised change- he had next to no experience to give it, and it seems the majority change he has introduced is to attempt to entirely conquer the field of abortion for his profit-making supporters.

America joins South Africa, and a select group of nations- in taking the choice to support life away from the conscientious objector. The real "pro-choice" vote should have been against the movement so well known for their support of killing those who are still unable to voice a protest.

When groups of humanity are treated as less than human, that is when alarm bells should be ringing. Speaking up is important, especially in self preservation, perhaps this poem from a bygone era will speak of this better than us:

"Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Kommunist.
Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten,
habe ich nicht protestiert;
ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
Als sie die Juden holten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Jude.
Als sie mich holten,
gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came...

Translated as:

""In Germany, they came first for the Communists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist;
And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist;
And then they came for the Jews, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew;
And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up.""

http://www.creativeminorityreport.com/2008/11/history-hyperbole-and-horror.html


Or more directly:

"When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I was not a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came...

I am not implying any connection between the American Democratic Party, and the Nazis, what I am saying is that as Catholics we believe abortion to be murder, and as Catholics we know that a Genocide is when conditions are created to allow the destruction of a group of society. If all ten year olds were to be allowed to be killed, it would be genocide. When Herod killed all children under two years, it was a genocide. And when one reduces births in a population in order to destroy part of all of a group- one is committing genocide according to the United Nations Definition.

Silence helps the oppressor, not the oppressed! please see the articles in Scripturelink Voters guide about the positions of South African parties on abortion and gay marriage, and the other 5 so-called non-negotiables for Catholics obedient to the papacy.

Scripturelink Voter's Guide- Democracy and Human Rights

(Scripturelink Voter's Guide; c.f. Scripturelink Encyclopedia: Democracy; Purify Your Bride 05/11/08)

Article by Marc Aupiais

"Ultimately, as Jesus notes of men- a fig tree has figs. A moral people are more likely to choose a moral leader, and educated people are likely to choose an educated leader, and an honest people are likely to aspire to honesty. One must note that Christ prayed on who his disciples were, as did the apostles- in succeeding Judas. Prayer, morality, and education- in logic- and discernment, are vital in creating adequate democracy. As it is noted, and as I note- Moral Law- is only not apparent to those who, or whose societies commonly break it. Like pain, recurring, conscience is ignored, but without evil influences, at least theoretically- democratic governance can be beneficial. As Jesus notes- treat your fellow man as you’d have him treat you- the people, if powerful enough, and wise enough- can often create good laws, however- the bad democrat is no way superior to the good autocrat. It is the body, which produces a head, or destroys the cancerous offshoot. A good democracy, with descerning people can produce a good leader, as much as any other system." (Marc Aupiais, 2007, Scripturelink Encyclopedia)
http://scripturelinkencyclopedia.stblogs.com/2007/12/24/democracy/

With between 45 and 54% of Catholics in America, estimated to have automatically been excommunicated under canon law, while voting in the US election, or supporting the United States Democratic Party, one may wonder why the Vatican has not openly refused relations with the United States of America. This is a country, which much like South Africa- has legalized a Genocide against citizens of their own country- at least until they can be registered as citizens (i.e. via killing them in abortion), and also a genocide in general (UN Declaration on Genocide article 2 section d- preventing births in a population, entered into force as law).

The reason lies in something I wrote on the 24th of December 2007, something we must remember about any political appointment in a Democracy. Yes, what, half the American church is likely excommunicated, if they through a fault of their own either did not know to, or did not choose to follow canon law, but this is their own choice, and their own cold, dark- slimy responsibility. The election of a leader by the people reflects the people who vote for him. The Vatican understands the situation in the Western world, they know who the leaders are, they are not blind to Canon Law, they are not blind to the deep chasms between church, state and Catholic populace.

At the same time, they understand that a country's presidential choices reflect the populace. The choice for keeping steady in abortion policy, and expanding abortion, and supporting a man who voted for infanticide to be legalized- reflects the people who voted for this man. If the Vatican were to decry anything, it would be the culture, and people who elected this party into office, the apathy of such people, the self focus, and consumer driven world-view, the selfish economic policies, and social policies of such a society. The Vatican, and the Papacy have openly condemned all of these- why must they also condemn the spokesperson with whom they must work. For negotiations, this does not help much.

Every person who supported the "American Democrats", and/or Obama in this American election- is guilty of helping the genocide of abortion, and more than that are at deep risk of the automatic excommunication of Canon law, with few exceptions. This is not about pointless politics, or even point-full politics- it is about a culture in the dances of souls. Every small action affects the spiritual landscape of the world, with constant ripples on salvation of souls- even what we do in the privacy of the mind has effect on our resonance. The Vatican now, as during World War Two, is not the sole speaker of the church, nor is her shock troops- the church calls the laity such.

Until the culture of truth prevails- until we openly live Christ, and manifest truth with every inhale and exhale of breath's movements- we will continue to see a culture with no center attacking like a broken sea, against the scarred beach of Catholicism. Our center will always hold, because our center is Reality Himself, Literally, and Reality is the Mediator of Our Existence. Mother Church says that apart from the church there is no salvation. We cannot blame the Vatican, or God, or our bishops, or leaders for the inexcusable allowance of Genocide in our western world, via the killing of the unborn. We must turn within and blame ourselves, and realize our own errors in this- and then determine not to be silent, and not to be hidden.

We who speak of what is right have much less guilt, and we who vote for what is right perhaps have even less if we also speak of it.

As the advance of a counterculture of abortion, euthanasia, and ideologies apposed to truth and church does walk steadily forward, blowing war horns, and beating with drums, like blood surging, and damaging the veins- and the spray of blood within the organs. As this happens- those of goodwill, Godspeed, and conscience must not flee and scatter, but stand strong uniformly, as centurions in our Army of truth, raising shields, and standing as one, as the Trojans, or the Romans, or the Spartans would. We must stand like sailors against the storm, like warships going out to battle. Standing by doing nothing, is to participate in what is happening.

Our weapons are the gospel, logic, truth, and detail.

Our methods are prayer, self mortification, and a lifestyle, opinions, openness, and boldness which does not pretend not to be ourself.

Let us not let further excommunications take place, let us not let the body of the broken church in the broken world continue to lose blood. We are a broken church, broken at the cross, by the break-lines of truth, spreading across our dry desert surface. Our brokenness should be a sign of truth, and not of lack of it. Let us preach the truth openly, and without fear of society, or others' views. It is only by openness, honesty and the logic behind our choice that we will make a difference. The Pope is not our sole voice- the Vatican is quiet, listening carefully, hoping that we will speak, praying for an end to apathy in every way, to selfish market policies, to abortion, and shortcuts like atheistic communism, and other things which do not aid her mission.

It is not by keeping silent on political, moral, and religious issues that we are safe. Saint Paul saw this as part of our defensive armour. In Nations like India, or England, where for years- Catholics have been more silent on the Gospel, the fog of war allows for misunderstanding and more.

Catholics must unite behind the banner of the Papacy, the banner of the pillar and foundation of truth's very essence (I Timothy chapter 3 verse 15), and we must join the battleground for the culture of the living truth. Nothing with human genes is anything less than human, and all that is human is worthy of human dignity- of being subject, and protected by others to and by Divine Law, and Natural Law.

Let us be the symbol, the sacrament, the paradox by which the world itself is saves- Let us Be Ecclesiam Veritas, Church of truth, and let us advance the human dignity to the far stretches, and barren wastelands, and hot, sweaty, humid rain-forests of our world, and to the depths of the oceans.

Until we take action through the right means, rather than just doing enough ineffectual "aiding" through corporates, and others selling substitutes for real help against the wines of conscience, we will not know what it is to be free. Freedom is at its fullest in sanity, and without sanity, we will never be free!

On this, on the need for justice, the Vatican has not been silent, and their silence is noise- for they are only silent when we cannot hear them. They have spoken on this issue loudly and clearly. It is now for us to amplify their voice- not just against individuals who are made examples by a culture. We have shown what these stand for, and still the culture of such accepts them, rather- let us show the logical, the social, the utter chasm of the fault in the society which supports Abortion and other issues, let us show them this through logic, love, truth and manifestation of honesty, through our every breath and via human dignity itself.

Social Justice South Africa- America goes with abortion candidate

(Scripturelink Voter's Guide; Social Justice South Africa)

Article by Marc Aupiais

There were internet sites set up to tell Catholics that the Catholic thing was to vote for Obmama, and dissidents from right and left, including the daughter of Kennedy, who did so much damage to the faith- also tried to convince voters. Obama broke a gentleman's promise with McCain in making a half and hour advert from his own money, his competitors noted he was the first since Nixon to abandon public funding. He has a 100 % rating from one of the most pro-abortion firms in the world, voted for introducing infanticide for failed abortion attempts, and has an interesting record with God.

Despite the automatic excommunication of Canon Law, and the best efforts of the American bishops to appose a party so apposed to the church and her efforts, I have been made sure that many Catholics either voted Democrat, or else convinced others to or supported this. Unfortunately, they are not permitted to take any sacraments, including confession until the excommunication against them is lifted by the church. This does not lift duties they have, but does ban utterly any use of sacraments, in what the church calls medicinal punishment.

When attending confession they must note punishments against them- theirs is latae sententiae excommuncation for conspiring and abetting for the cause of abortion, and you need to ask for this to be lifted and absolved of. If you voted for or supported the Democrats- mention the excommunication, and if the powers to lift this have been distributed to priests in your area- they will hopefully lift it, otherwise, they should be able to tell you how to get it lifted.

Abortion is called Black Genocide, and this is not a reference to the UN declaration on genocide, which should be being used in the case of abortion- it refers to the fact that the African American population in America are being attacked at the base level by statistics of this. America lets their major abortion firm- "Planned Parenthood" teach sexual education in schools. What President Bush of America apposed- and took away was American funding of third world abortion. Also- America under Bush, managed to prevent a lifting on the World Moratorium on human cloning.

Was the other Candidate a saint, no- but the candidate the church has been fighting so hard against for ages has gotten in. McCain, despite perception was no Bush ally- Bush didn't even really help with his campaign, or at all if I recall. They also were rivals in their previous attempting to be the Republican candidate in the previous election. Obama has no real experience in policy (BBC World News), he has less than Palin did. The colour of a person's skin does not determine how good they are for Africa or the world. We've seen that in Africa.

Sadly- the current financial crisis could have been avoided- Obama's competitor, McCain co-sponsored a bill to allow reform of the financial sector in 1992, which was apposed by the Democrats. Ultimately, for Catholics who voted Republican or supported the Republican ballot- their reward is their position safe in Mother church- unlike others they are not excommunicated, or in doctrinally a position known as mortal sin. They can take communion this Sunday, and retain office in the church. The sad part for the church- is an administration which has routinely used and abused religion- twisted her teachings in public and with great scandal, and utterly apposes her in many places.

This is not a better day for Africa or the world- only an exiting day for a true African America- in the Literal sense- Obama isn't even more than half African in heritage if I recall. Those wanting an African President will still have to wait- Obama is still what, half white.

Politics-McCain and the campaign auction on SNL

(Scripturelink Voters Guide; c.f. CNN 02/11/08)

Article by Marc Aupiais

Politics has allot to do with selling- Barack Obama (no relation to anyone with the name Osama, the b is quite important in showing this), is used to this- he is a best selling political author, and has more experience voting for killing abortion survivors by withholding treatment, than on any beneficial bill. McCain, a war hero, ex-war prisoner, and a maveric with years of experience in politics, is finding it hard to compete with a personality cult- based on creating a sign to the world. Oddly, Obama, if he gets in- will persecute the Black community heavily- in a country which already lets abortion firm "Planned Parenthood" (who recently tried to force a two child limit on third world Philippines), teach sex education in schools- it is estimated that the black community in America, is being destroyed by high abortion rates.

One sees African American voters singing hymns to their Obama, and oddly having sudden reasons why they should vote the completely inexpirienced coloured (not black) candidate in. Mostly we desire someone who will have empathy to our kind, but Obama for black people will be far worse than Kennedy was for Catholic's culture. Obama will likely reintroduce American funding for third world abortion programs, he will likely appoint pro-abortion, pro-death judges, and will likely give even more money to American abortion firms. It may be noted that in 1992 already the republicans tried to reform America's financial policy, in a bill sponsored by Senator McCain, the democrats rejected the attempt. Bush and McCain also are surprisingly relative adversaries, who ran against each other to be a candidate eight years ago.

So, how does McCain counter Obama's past's promises of cheaper abortions, and campaign contradictions, but with the cheaper taxes he doesn't mention will probably be aided by the less costs needed in paying for genocide in other nations (United Nations declaration article 2 section d). Now he is getting further, the Republican appeared on Saturday Night Live, to spoof himself, "selling" campaign products, and "appearing" on the home shopping network to combat Obama's 30 minute "presidential" add. McCain may well be way further ahead in polls, as when black and white candidates in past elections have competed, the polls generally show more support for black candidates- than the election results do.

As a Catholic who is neither black, nor interested in a man who will continue the persecution of black people in America, I can only say I hope those Obama supporting Catholics realize- that after this election they will need to find someone to lift the automatic excommunication placed on them by the church under canon law.
