Will Scotland’s Bishops Oppose the Country’s Now Very Obvious Descent into Totalitarianism?

Will Scotland’s Bishops Oppose the Country’s Now Very Obvious Descent into Totalitarianism?

Editor writes…

From the pandemic get-go, the bishops of Scotland have been complicit in facilitating Nicola Stalin Sturgeon’s instinctive authoritarianism.  To their (literally) eternal shame they closed down the churches even before required by her Godless decree, and the diocesan parish churches continue to impose the nonsensical restrictions on what’s left of their dwindling congregations. Unsurprisingly, the members of said dwindling congregations are, for the most part, as faithless as their priests.  So consumed are they by the irrational fear which is a hallmark of this past two years, that they’re not going to object to the introduction of permanent dictatorship either… not when it’s “for their own good”. Gimme strength. 

So, no, the bishops won’t object to this predictable power grab by Nicola Stalin Sturgeon, who is clearly determined to remain in her role as the “Dear Leader” – Scotland’s equivalent to North Korea’s Kim Jong-un…  Indeed,  I think the bishops of Scotland (and the majority of the priests) are so far gone in their apostasy, that they will actually welcome permanent dictatorship. To quote Joe Biden:  norra joke.  Of course, that’s my opinion – feel free to share yours…

First, though, it might be useful to consider a couple of quotes from a well-known Russian dissident who spent 8 years in a Russian Labour Camp for his temerity in criticising his anything-but-dear leader, Joseph Stalin:

“Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.”  (Alexander Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago).

“What would things have been like [in Russia] if during periods of mass arrests people had not simply sat there, paling with terror at every bang on the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people?”
(Alexander Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago).

Solzhenitsyn makes the point that the poor people of Russia were overtaken by totalitarianism because they didn’t value their freedom enough.  Hopefully, given the fact that there are some activists arranging freedom marches in Scotland these days, we won’t get to the stage of mass arrests, but if we don’t do whatever we can to make plain the fact that we have no intention of singing “Long to rule over us” to Nicola Stalin Sturgeon, we can’t blame anyone but ourselves if this shocking power-grab is successful.

Remember, our freedoms come from God, not Government.  We have repeated this elementary truth many times on this blog, from the beginning.  So, let’s insist that our bishops, priests and other allegedly Catholic religious leaders make their (our) voices heard, loud, clear and with much urgency, in an effort to drive home to the politicians that we will not tolerate this power-grab on any level; not the political/personal level nor the religious level.  Our freedoms come from God, not Nicola Stalin Sturgeon.

And it should go without saying that we must all pray very hard at this very dangerous moment in our national history.

St Andrew, Patron of Scotland, pray for us

St Margaret, Queen of Scotland, pray for us

St Mungo, Patron Saint of Glasgow, pray for us

St John Ogilvie, Scotland’s only Reformation Martyr, pray for us

All the great saints of Scotland, pray for us…

    The Scottish Bishops are very left wing and pro-independence, as are all their flunkies like Convery and Kearney etc. So in some ways, they are natural allies of this SNP regime.

    They are empty vessels as spiritual leaders, only ever going through the motions. E.g. they called for the SNP perverted child sex survey to be “revised” rather than flatly saying it would not see the light of day in Catholic schools.

    They have no interest in confrontation, only accommodation – perfect Vatican II stuff.

    I have never been one for conspiracy theories, but increasingly I see and hear claims that Nicola Sturgeon is actually a lesbian and her marriage is a sham to disguise this. This is banded about in The Herald comments section almost daily, and apparently politicians like George Galloway have acknowledged it (?).

    If true, it at least explains why all she seems to care about is “LGBT rights”, why her cabinet minister Derek Mackay MSP was treated with kids gloves after being exposed grooming a 16 yr old boy, and why her close allies include many homosexuals.

    Her government can do nothing competently – beyond advance LGBT matters – and only seems to dangle the carrot of independence to the gullible when it comes to election time. She is like an LGBT cuckoo in the independence nest.

    With todays standards*, there is no need for LGBT people to hide their inclinations: but perhaps she does so as a means of controlling power (?). People think they are voting for one thing, but actually getting another.

    (*I misspelled that as “satandards” at first – how apt!)

    Similar to how the LGBT-full (& close Sturgeon-allies) Green party claims to be concerned with the environment at election time, but its really just an LGBT campaign group most of the time.

    As I said, it could just be a conspiracy theory – but it could also be another reason why the Daisy-Chain infested Scottish Church is so warm to her.
