JON STEWART’S VAGINA MANGER SCENE

April 17, 2012 by admin

On last night’s edition of “The Daily Show,” host Jon Stewart ripped the Fox News Network for giving air to the “war on women” issue. He then ridiculed the cable station’s “war on Christmas,” asking, “What can women do to generate the same sense of outrage from Fox as the removal of decorative slightly poisonous holiday plants? Perhaps they could play into the theme?”

At this point, they showed on TV a picture of a naked women with her legs spread apart with a nativity scene ornament in between. Stewart said, “Maybe women could protect their reproductive organs from unwanted medical intrusions with vagina mangers.”

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments as follows:

This unprecedented vulgar assault on Christians cannot stand. If Jon Stewart doesn’t apologize, we will mount a boycott of his show’s advertisers. And we will enlist our allies in the Protestant, Jewish, Mormon and Muslim communities.

Richard,

This is an obscene disgrace, but tragically, it does not surprise me. the depths of depravity that the media (or 'meeja' as we call it here in australia) will and does sink to knows no bounds. god help them, God help us!

This type of diabolical act persists because they know we will not bomb their television studios; plain and simple (not that I am advocating violence - on the contrary)!! Nonetheless, because we pose no real and present physical threat to them, they push the boundary ever further with impunity.

The fact that they all forget, or ignore, is the day they have with the Just Judge, whether they believe in Him or not. They will have to answer for these outrages and our Lord's sentence will be final, unless they undergo a true and genuine radical re-orientation of their lives and worldview to one that is faithfully Catholic Christian. they see the Catholic Church as an easy target; they see our protestant brethren of good will as easy targets also. they dare not harrangue the Jewish community because they know the Board of Deputies will have them in the dock faster than you can say 'jack robinson', and they dare not attack the Islamic community in this manner because they know how such actions will be greeted. They idolize the Buddhists, and see Hinduism as a curiosity, but Christianity - we are the despotic repressors of women and homosexuals, the enemies of democracy, human rights and individualism in their minds...need I say more? Oh come, Holy Pope and Great Catholic Monarch!! come soon!!

Richard, when time permits, another analysis of the present age in light of Church approved escatology would be truly appreciated.

many blessings to you and your family,

Thank you for your incredible Blog ministry,

PS: dreamt five nights ago I underwent reception of eucharist a'la viaticum in a dream as real as if one wre receiving the eucharyst in church - every facet from the scent offrankinsense and beeswax to the taste, feel and texture of the species - what does this mean?? and a sense as waking from dream that such was received from a saint (st. Charbel; a very important Marounite saint) (remember I have no visual point of reference here); what does it mean?? is it just my mind processing the incredible journey I have undertaken this past year into Holy Mother Church or much more? (Please delete the 'PS' from comment when posted; but feel free to reply privately or through this medium.

Blessings,

Sarah.

But I still stumble and wrestle with my 'midnight demons and wind up slipping back at my weakest (insomiac etc, stressed) into old habits that I thought had gone when I came into the church...needing to hit the confessional before mass... I'm as far from perfect as one could get; is holiness a process?? I feel so far from there yet that its not funny, but chip away day by day, calling on my Lord and Lady whenever I screw up, retreating to the Rosary daily, no matter what has transpired, feel like I'll never measure up sometimes; thank God for His Son, His mother, St. Charbel and St. Faustina - another comfort. is the fact I know something's wrong when it's wrong is a start...All I can do is Trust in our Saviour because I know my own flaws and limitations all too well and no that my life was very scarlet before - when I knew better also!! - can't stand without His mercy, His divine mercy!! as St. Paul said, 'What i will I do not, what I hate I do'...'Oh wretched man that I am, who will release me from this body of death!!'...

One day at a time.

Blessings,

You may stuble and fall but you get up the next day and start all over again. Here are some positive quotes for you.

The spiritual combat in which we kill our passions to put on the new man is the most difficult struggle of all. We must never weary of this combat, but fight the holy fight fervently and perseveringly." --St. Nilus

It is right that you should begin again every day. There is no better way to complete the spiritual life than to be ever beginning it over again.--
St. Francis de Sales

You friend in Christ.

Thank you, Richard,

Please pray for me to overcome a particular nasty and insidious little thorn in my flesh that falls well and truly under the subject matter of your first encouraging saint's quote. I can do naught but trust in Him because my own righteousness is as filthy rags; my recalcetrance and recidivism is a shame to my God and my conformation vows. Deep seated adictive sin is the jump the enemy thinks he has over me; I must shed it if I am to progress through the agency of Christ's divine mercy along the path of metanoia/sanctification and finally brake the cycle and have the spine to cry out to St Charbel, St Faustina et al when tempted.

Please pray for me, if you know someone who has the time to intercede with a novina for me, please let them know. Out of prudence and embarrassment, I shall not elaborate any further, but thank you for your wise counsel and kind friendship as my brother in Christ.

Blessings in abundance,

Sarah.

Gods mercy is the one thng on which I count on and pray for. St Paul has his thorn as do we all. he struggled on a daily basis and could only defeat this scourge by the grace he recievd by the blood of the risen Lord. Put everything is God's hands.

Richard,

Our heavenly Father has been showing me some very interesting lessons this week; asthma so bad that breathing has truly proven to be a labour, necessary but horrid medication that makes one feel a bit wretched...all this to say, I believe God has used this illness flareup (worst it has been in over a decade) to sit me down, shut me up, and level with me (re matters spoken of above)...the ultimate question...if I were to breathe my last this night??...I simply long to draw nearer to Him than ever...an almost primal craving, and be done with the sin once and for all, through Christ's strength and mercy (because as soon as I think I can do it all myself, I've already failed).

Aditionally, at last, i have distributed a cash of blessed (my chaplain at uni must be sick of blessing things every other week for me!!) things, Miraculous Medals and St. Charbel medals around the house that I've meant to do so for some time (MM at front door, most windowsills, by my bed, windowsills of the upstairs rooms, (hope the MM by my bed will stand in for the upstairs balcony door 'unguarded'), with a St. charbel by the back sliding door (only kitchen window unguarded, and guarage door (will sling a rosary around the doorhandle for the time being) . Am I being supersticious? I trust in the efficatious promises attributed to the use of sacramental objects. Am i being fanciful or was the physical experience of almost euphoria I encountered (100% real in nature) almost a 'butterflies in the stomach' feeling, of placing the medals and praying/trusting in god's promises concerning them fanciful? Was the scream from the enemy I imagined I heard in the dimmest background mere imagination?? I've also holy cards about the place, images and an accurate (if not a little kitch) Sacred Heart of jesus - a Christmas present from my husband...plus a cash of blessed candles. My fave chaplain at uni is very supportive of this, as are my catechetical teachers, and of course, the nice man in the Catholic shop (though their things are very nicely priced so all can afford the truly essential bits and bobs). am I merely being an over-zealous convert, as it were?

i'd love your thoughts when you have time.

Blessings,
