THE MONTHS OF JUNES – R-RATED
Still contemplating which R word to use (Recover, Restore, Rebuild) — but in this post I really mean R-Rated, and unless you’re a child of the 20th century and inured to perversion and immorality, please don’t go on. I wouldn’t let my family read this. It’s not . . . ladylike.
So, don’t. You’ve been warned.
JUNE # 1
The lovely month of June is here! Blooming Gardens, Brooding Birds, and Blushing Brides .
Good things that celebrate love and life!
June was named for the Roman goddess Juno who represented matrimony and childbirth. Families are the foundation of any healthy society, and the Romans honored family and family connections.
In Christendom, June is also known as the month of weddings, * a time to celebrate Holy Matrimony, the foundation for family and the setting for rearing children. The Church adds one deeper dimension: June is the month dedicated to the celebration of The Sacred Heart.
When I entered the Church, this symbol –
– with its red heart surrounded by a crown of thorns, burning flames, and dripping blood was “embarrassingly” overly sentimental. It took me a little time to accept the Intense (burning) Love that Our Crucified Lord actually had – for me!
Now I understand the symbol, but like any human being, I also . . . forget. I know, but I don’t feel it all the time. Sometimes I remember when I used to roll my eyes at such a symbol – and then I have to think about the True God that came to die for me in order that I may have eternal life in God’s good Heaven, where no sinner deserves to be.
So the Church, in her wisdom, has developed the tradition of appointing the whole month of June for us to think more deeply on these things.
A God who loves and cares! Deo gratias!
JUNE # 2
Now, we live in two worlds. St. Augustine called it Two Cities. We leave the City of God now, with its Natural Seasons and Natural Law, and look briefly at that other city; it’s temporary and R-Rated, much to our sorrow.
An attempt to command –
The man they have placed into the American White House has – in diabolic defiance to Nature – “ordered” this country to celebrate un-Natural acts.
(Want the official White House proclamation? Go Here . . . )
Defying Nature is Un-Natural, as in a roaring lion rolling over on its back, exposing its throat to a bunny rabbit . . .
. . . Un-Natural as a butterfly swimming under water;
. . . as a hippopotamus “boinking” a giraffe – or trying to. (Boinking – you know . . . poking into.)
Each creature is made with certain characteristics for which it is Natural to do the things it was designed for. An ear is for hearing. A mouth is for eating. Other parts of the body fit into other parts of another body.
Yet this man who is known to have been a member of two (TWO!) gay bath houses in Chicago, has taken this lovely month of June and is trying to PUBLICLY besmirch it . . .
(TAKE NOTE: I’m writing about observable, objective undeniable practices) —
. . . encouraging practices which place a human mouth on another person’s . . . place where it’s icky to put it. Or thrust one’s hand inside in order to find . . . squishy substances.
Practices which always result in damage to delicate tissue. (As I said a few posts ago, I worked in a hospital for four years. Pediatrics, yes, but sometimes I was pulled to help out in the emergency room. You wouldn’t believe some of the things one man can do to another.)
Practices which encourage the spread of disease from one person to another.
Practices which according to government studies have increased the cost of healthcare and burdened the economy with lost work days and lost productivity. Government studies; not someone’s “opinions.”
Practices which result in higher rates of depression, psychological sickness, and violent abuse (statistically speaking) of one’s partner in shame. (so-called “spouse abuse”) Just according to statistics. Objective numbers.
Practices which violate the sanctity of the Natural family.
Practices which therefore a healthy society has always regarded with shame and then outlawed – and punished.
The man encourages practices which violate his own religious preferences –
— and wishes citizens of this country to violate theirs.
Two Junes. Two Months of Junes.
The contrast is clear. And we can let it go, or we can choose to live as human beings, repairing and rebuilding and elevating our society into a state of dignity and respect.
Okay. So maybe this post was X-Rated. It’s hard to be ladylike and truthful about a 20th century-type society.
But NOTE AGAIN: I speak of Practices; actions, not of persons. Practices happen and can be objectively observed.
. * Please don’t fall for the anti-Christian myth that puts forth June as the month for weddings because in the Middle Ages people were dirty and took baths only once a year when the weather got warmer and so their bodies were less offensive in June.
Gullible college professors should be ashamed to continue that slanderous story in front of their uneducated students.
