“Satan Can’t Be in the Ecumenical Movement”…We Are NOT Required to Respect All Views – MP

“Satan Can’t Be in the Ecumenical Movement”…We Are NOT Required to Respect All Views – MP

From the YouTube Platform…

Senior Tory Desmond Swayne has warned his colleagues, during a meeting of the standards committee, that he will not stop airing his point of view. It comes after the standards committee suggested MPs should “demonstrate anti-discriminatory attitudes”. The committee is drawing up proposals for a new code of conduct for MPs. It has stressed that its recommendations are only in draft form at this stage and that it would consult further before publishing a final set of proposals for MPs to debate and vote on – expected around Easter 2022.   Ends. 

Editor writes…

Yet again, I find Sir Desmond Swayne’s honesty refreshing.  Members of Parliament (MPs) are notoriously economical with the truth and always ready to play the PC or Woke game to appease everyone, so it is reassuring to know that there is at least one MP who speaks his mind.

And his mind on this subject coincides with my own.  I have spent many years of my professional life explaining that while it would be wrong to be rude to others with whom we disagree on important matters of religious faith or morals, it would be equally wrong (and a false charity) to pretend either that we do agree with A.N. Other(s) on key issues, or that their immoral views and/or false religious beliefs are valid, before God.  Grown-ups should be able to disagree politely enough (although I never mind, indeed I enjoy, robust debate) without falling out or name-calling the other(s).  After quite a few years spent listening to the religious education “experts” (including certain priests) saying the opposite, I am pleased to hear my long-held position affirmed by a respected Westminster MP.

Well, now you know what I think on the subject – what about you?  SHOULD Satan be invited to join the ecumenical movement? 😀

    Well strictly speaking, ‘the Ecumenical movement’ involves Christian denominations. Satanism is not a Christian denomination, so therefore should come under ‘the Interfaith movement’, along with Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Jainism, etc, etc. I’d like to see how muslims react to being lumped with the satanists. LOL!! I read one of the Westminster Interfaith newsletters once out of curiosity. Sheer lunacy. Yes, Desmond Swayne is completely right, but I fear he’s battling against an ever-greater tide of ‘wokery’.

      Westminster Fly,

      Maybe Sir Desmond has a bit of a woke streak in him after all, if he chose “ecumenical” over “interfaith”!

      That Fat Guy in the Front came out with the usual 2 Most Anti Catholic Words. Inclusiveness and Diversity. As soon as I hear these words I literally know that their is going to be Anti Catholic attitudes coming after Them.
      I need not ,nor never will agree with anyone who is Promoting Homosexuality and Transgenderism.
      As for His Female Buddy sitting behind Him She also could do with losing some Timber. In other words they are Fat .

      Again as it’s been said the Satanists do not Bother with Islam. Hindus . Bhudists . Jews. Protestants all 30.000 Denominations seem to get a Satanic Free Pass .
      O and we Catholics know the Real Reason that lots of Fake Catholics IE Satanists who go to the N.O. want never to stop Communion in The Hand . God Forgive me for saying it but it’s the Truth. It cuts of their supply for Black Masses. God Bless Desmond Swayne. God Bless You also Martin.

    N O T I C E . . .

    As promised, the latest update on Athanasius/Martin Blackshaw’s treatment for throat cancer…

    His radiation treatment is complete, and doctors are pleased with his progress.

    However, he is still suffering from a “red raw” throat which is very painful and – very importantly – he is still awaiting the day when he can taste a bar of chocolate again!

    As you will guess, his sense of humour remains intact.

    Keep up the prayers – we are seeking a total cure of this cancer. Thanks, folks!

      Remembering Athanasius in my prayers. Thanks for the update – a red raw throat sounds awful. God help him.

    I totally love Sir Desmond Swayne! He is the best! He knew he was shocking his colleagues on the parliamentary committee but he said it upfront anyway, that he holds some people in contempt. LOL! He’s a hoot!

    I think he means he holds very bad ideas pushed by some dodgy people, in contempt. I’m not sure we can hold actual people in contempt!

    Inclusiveness is the word I would use. I don’t like the word ecumenism. We are all people no matter where you or i came from. Padre pio used to say ignore their nationality, just people who have common interest re God. He even prayed for a Protestant king George 6th on the night he died. He was a priest for all people no matter where they came from.

      Unfortunately, ‘inclusiveness’ has become a code word for accepting / agreeing with any kind of perversion. In my last job my manager wanted me to do a ‘Diversity and Equality’ course (she obviously thought I wasn’t ‘inclusive’ enough.) When I saw what it entailed, I point-blank refused to do it – and didn’t do it.
      Ecumenism doesn’t really mean anything anyway. There can never be any acceptable ‘convergence’ of varying beliefs to make up one form of new Christianity. Non-Catholics can either convert to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, or remain outside of it.

        Westminster Fly,

        You are so right about that awful word “inclusive” – I detest the way it has been manipulated by the loony leftists in such a way that people are forced to pretend they they think immorality is good and vice versa.

        Kudos to Sir Desmond Swayne MP – I just wish he was my MP!

    Great Comment W. F. we as Catholics seem to have given enough up in Vatican 2 IE a Mass to Fit Protestants. Am o so Happy that I found The Latin Mass again , even if took me to my very late 60s to do so.
    As for Ecumenicism am certainly not interested. Unless of course Non Catholics want to join us.
