He also contributes regularly to Freedom Monthly; Illuminations and The Sojourner. Duane is the author of Guns and Knives will Save Your Children’s Lives. He is Vice President of the Sacred Society of St Philibustre, and enjoys hunting rattlesnakes, square dancing and watching re runs of comedy classics. He is unmarried.

I see from the news headlines on the so-called ‘internet’, that two notoriously liberal groups are in ‘reconciliation’ talks. The Society of St Pious X which is now led by the Canadian Bishop Malcolm X is rubbing its hands with glee because they have got ‘Pope’ Ratzinger on the run. The German Shepherd is losing members of his flock all over the world, and he is desperate to claw back as many as possible. First through the ill  advised overtures to the Protestant Church of England with the ‘Personal Ordinariate’, and now with ‘reconciliation’ talks with the liberal Protestant minded SSPX.

I am sure that all faithful members of the Sacred Society of St Philibustre will see this ruse for what it really is. The Church of England, and by extension all those of the Anglican persuasion, are now and ever shall be a Protestant body. In the sixteenth century King Henry VIII wanted to divorce his wife Catherine of Aragorn (who was related to the Once and Future King of Middle Earth) in order to marry Anne Boleyn-Alleys. He broke with the pope and started his own church. This is exactly what the rebellious Archbishop Lefebevre did when he broke away from the Pope and started his own church. This split occurred because ‘Catholic’ bishops started smiling and stopped wearing gloves with rings on top.

What most people don’t realize is that the three groups sitting down around the table in this cosy ecumenical meeting are ALL Protestants! Cardinal (Bunny) Bugninny was a Freemason and started the Novus Ordo Mass which was condoned by the anti-Pope “Prince” John XXIII who was also a member of the Lodge. Jolly Old John was also a secret member of the Skull and Bones club while he was an exchange student at Yale. He also joined the Order of the Moose, and registered as a member of the Reader’s Digest Book of the Month Club. Everyone knows the words “Novus Ordo” mean “New Order” and does anyone  believe that it is a mere co-incidence that this Mass contains the secret rituals of the “Novus Ordo Seculorum” otherwise known as the “New World Order.”??

These Latin words are on every American dollar bill. Surrounding the great seal of America which shows the pyramid of Cheops. (Note the linguistic link to the “Copts”–the liberal ‘Catholic’ Church of Egypt.) surmounted by the all seeing eye of Horus which is the symbol of the devil worshipping “New World Order” and the Eye of Sauron defeated by the scion of the House of Aragorn. This “New World Order” is a vast international conspiracy comprising members of the British Royal Family, most American presidents, the celebrity singers Wayne Newton and Hank Williams as well as film stars Danny Kaye, Fred MacMurray and Mortimer Ruskind.

Anti-Pope Ratzinger–the head of the biggest Protestant Church is now trying to get together not only with the Anglicans through his ill advised ‘ordinariate’ but he is also reaching out the hand of friendship to fellow Protestant Liberals–the SSPX. They have all started their own churches, so I doubt whether they will wish to give up their pointy hats and submit to one another. I wish them luck, but I am saddened that these religious leaders do not return to the true church.

The Sacred Society of St Philibustre maintains the ancient and venerable Western Ambrosianic Rite (non-collegian). We vow obedience to Pope Linus. Our women don the Magdalene, and we steadfastly refuse the innovation of the buttoned maniple. The be-ribboned maniple links us to the most ancient of liturgical traditions and it is not something on which we are willing to compromise. It is true that we are a small church, but did not our Lord himself say that “the gate is narrow and few there be that find it?” Did he not say that unless you become like a little sparrow you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven, and are we not, as it were, a little sparrow of a church?” Often we are called to join others, but we will not compromise and cast our swine before pearls!

For those of our readers who are in the fine state of Alabama I am pleased to announce the opening of a new church. Rev’d Father Monsignor Donald Rickles has recently been ordained and moved to Alabama. Mgr Rickles has transferred to us upon the closure of his former fellowship–the Anglican Orthodox Church of the Northern Alliance. Pope Linus has installed him as Archpriest of the cathedral of St Aloysius Zapata of the Holy Shoes. I encourage you to join him there for the Divine Liturgy. Sadly Mgr. Rickles is experiencing difficulties with his wife Noreen, so he is presently living with his mother in law Ms. Ruth Buzzi. The cathedral is located in a charming room over her garage at 173 Floribunda Grove in Nostril, Alabama.

His Grace presides from the Runcible Chair at 10:00 on Saturday mornings following the Ambrosianic Sabbatarian traditions.
