Sri Lanka’s Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith Appears To Forget The Christian Notion Of Mercy …

It was, indubitably, a dastardly crime and one fully understands the cardinals sorrow, anger and frustration.

But, he is also a prelate, a Cardinal to boot.

I doubt whether even loose-lipped, loose-cannon Pope Francis would have blurted out ‘mercilessly’. He, actually, is BIG on mercy. Kind of a trademark. See below.

Enough said.

As a papal historian I have to, alas, capture and record these moments. Come the next sede vacante folks, yet again, will be clamoring that Ranjith is papabile. I need documentation.


Pope Francis on MERCY.

Gay marriage is one thing. A ‘married’ Catholic priest, irrespective of whether it is homosexual or hetrosexual, is a whole different matter.

A ‘married’ Catholic priest is an OXYMORON!

You can’t have a ‘married’ Catholic priest. It just can’t be. To have a ‘married’ Catholic priest would be akin to an American (Mormon or otherwise) claiming he is legally married to two women. Just cannot be.

For Krzystof Charamsa to shamelessly bandy about his ‘marriage’ is idiotic. This has NOTHING to do with gay marriage. Catholic priest cannot be married. Catholic priest should NOT be married. They have taken a vow of celibacy — where Catholic ‘celibacy’ is all about FORBIDDING permanent relationships, i.e., marriage, as opposed to forestalling sex! I have explained this. A vow of chastity or continence is about forgoing sex. Celibacy is just about marriage.

So this is a JOKE. Why the pope, who has that type of power, did not summarily defrock him on Friday when we started making all these waves is another indictment on this pope.

He panders too much.

But lets once and for all get this straight. Gay marriage has NOTHING to do with Gay Catholic priests. They cannot be married! Period.

Got that?

Click to ENLARGE and read. Acceleration in the last 49 seconds. Yes, 49 seconds. I did a graph to show that it was straight line acceleration. 40% in 49 seconds!


Now transpires that Brandon Bostian was some kind of zealous ‘travel safety’ advocate plus a confirmed loner.

So was he, most likely extremely aware that Congress, in D.C., was in the process of debating Amtrak funding set out to make an indelible statement?

Think about it.

Scary.

Was this the ULTIMATE in a graphic Political Statement!

Interesting that nobody is coming forward about his girlfriend, wife or even any other partner. Seems to have been a loner.

Obviously had to have had some mental issues, even if he was not getting treatment.

I have concluded that today’s incessant social media is aggravating mental unease. All this non-stop ‘relationship’ chatter on Facebook, Twitter etc. makes those susceptible to such anxious, rattled and depressed. I see it all around me.

Definitely some destructive element at work. The brake were working.

The sudden braking may have been in his plan ALL along. Sudden, straight line acceleration followed by applying the emergency brakes, on a sharp corner, was GUARANTEED to jackknife and derail the train. So the braking could have been the ‘belt-and-braces’ — making doubly sure that the train would derail.

But I am beginning to think that there could have been a political statement aspect to this tragic crash.

Food for thought. Maybe we might be getting to the point that we might be better off with driverless trains and even planes.

I have a sinking feeling that we have some type of mental issue here — with Brandon Bostian.

There are more people with mental issues in the U.S. than most people even have a clue. I saw these pictures of Brandon Bostian, this morning, while having my coffee in bed, in the U.K. “Daily Mail“, the ONLY newspaper I read (and have been doing so since the 1970s).

Nice enough looking guy, even dashingly handsome in his later pictures, BUT look at some of the earlier ones.

Hhhhmmmm.

Simple question. Does Amtrak ever check the mental situation of their engineers?

The statement by Brandon Bostian’s lawyer (above) is VERY telling. No “health issues to speak of”. Good lawyer-speak. Says nothing about MENTAL health.

Says he was not on medication. So on face value it would mean he wasn’t taking any ‘psychiatric’ drugs. BUT again lawyer-speak. Did he STOP taking such drugs? Did that result in suicidal thoughts? Irrational behavior? Did anybody say anything to Amtrak about him acting strange?

Wakeup call for Amtrak. You have to be on top of the mental profile of all your employees.

We used to have the saying “Going Postal”.

Will be have to add “Going Amtrak”?
