France, Charles de Gaulle once wrote, is a secular republic with a Catholic heart.

He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own.”~~

Acta Est Fabula.
I was writing an entire book here, to make my case, but i’ve decided to simply say…
Sadly, a lot of people, both long-time “friends” of mine and strangers, straight and gay, resent my clinging to the church despite my being “different” b/c they cannot use me as one of their little lie-spreaders anymore. They fear i am against them… I am not.
What i am against is their spreading of lies, their attacks against good people, and the typical destruction of society in the name of equal-but-special. As the bible says, “Pride comes before the fall.” On the day of the Gay Marriage Law passing in the USA this past year, i congratulated my peers, but also quoted that phrase in the bible.
But above all, it’s never about celebrating ourselves. Know the truth, and it will set you free.
You are more tolerant than I–or, for that matter, than was De Gaulle.
St Joan of Arc is my hero and defender.
And the Patroness of France.
Yes, she is!
Luckily, I am a Bergeron, from the House of Burgundy, who the hell knows how far back. This is on my father’s side.
My mother’s side is a combo of Yugoslav Christian & Transylvanian Hasidim bred inside a major city, Uptown Pest, east of the Danube. I have the exact building and apartment number. She defected in ’56 and has a mean New English-Hungarian accent.
When you’ve got that going on, and you don’t live in a castle, you can’t take life too seriously. 🙂
And i love your blog, Mr John!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
I spoke at Nana’s table to Ed Morrow about how disaffected I was at the Americans having left the Hungarian people to be butchered after we had encouraged them to rise up against the Russians. I was 4 years old. I wrote a reciprocal letter on this subject to the Times which was published. I was 4 years old.
Happy New Year yo you!
That is awesome! You were born to write, there’s proof.
And I had a feeling, like you’re saying, the revolution was encouraged.
Yes, there is no question that General Ike encouraged, actively, the Hungarian uprising. And yes, people died because of it. Ed Murrow was personal witness to that slaughter.
Imagine that, and people actually believe communism is the savior of mankind.
A surprising number still do think that.
