The highpriestess of "progression" and political correctness: Mary Robinson


Since the beginning of Mary Robinson coming on the scene 

30 years ago, she was hailed by all the media; Ireland saw in her a chance to show 

to the entire world how progressive she was by electing her; a woman, as president. 

She became synonymous with progression, women's rights, equality, modernity, 

anti church, pro abortion.

She was revered, and I think it is still the case, by many Irish people.

"She is great" they all said, "she is a great president" they repeated. Why?

For the simple reason that she was a woman!!

The same reasoning that many used regarding Obama, when he became a 

presidential candidate.

"Fantastic! We want him! He will be great, he is great!" they said.

Why? Because he was black!

That is just a pathetic reason, it is also  racist and sexist to

make a judgement based on the colour or gender of a person. 

And as Kamala Harris is both a woman and black,

 it goes without saying that she must be fantastic! 


As for me, Mary Robinson always left me cold, she never once moved 

my heart or inspired me in any way. 

I always found her  haughty, self important, dry, predictable 

and extremely rigid, which was also a striking feature of her body movements. 

Of course she is happy to see the likes of Kamala Harris as vice president in

the States, and of course she was delighted with the prominent role that 

Michelle Obama had as First Lady to be able to promote abortion as a desired, 

responsible and even respectable thing to do. 

These 3 women all seems to have the same agenda, but it is a narrative that 

they impose on the world, they overstep and abuse their privileged positions.

If they stop their indoctrination, they will see that women, and people in general, 

are able to find their own values and come to their own conclusions. 



We should never lose sight of the importance of  Role models.  

They show us how to be, what to believe, what has value, 

how to act, how to speak, what kind of attitudes to have; 

in reality they are downloading themselves into us. 

A child does normally not know this of course, but 

whether we know it or not, and whether we like it or not, 

this is what happens.  

The first role models we had was our parents. 

Then comes grandparents, the extended family, teachers, 

friends, and famous people. 

Think about it: we become new versions of our parents or 

whoever brought us up. 

This is why Mary is so important to us Catholics, she is not only 

the Mother of Jesus; the Mother of God, but our Mother too, and 

she is our Role Model, who shows us how to get to Jesus.  

We must be close to her, in order to be influenced and guided 

by her. 

Then there is national culture:

Ireland is strongly associated with drinking in pubs,

in a lighthearted and jovial atmosphere of social interaction 

and networking.

France is world famous for haute cuisine, food is a big part 

of french culture.

And in the same way as all social interactions takes place around 

a drink in Ireland, in France they all take place around food. 

The French drink wine too, but it is rather for it's taste than for it's 

alcoholic effect, so they drink a glass, or maybe two, but that is 

normally it. (there are exceptions!)

The result from these two examples of culture is excess. 

People end up drinking and eating much more than they 

ought to and need to, which both brings serious problems.

“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;”

( Ephesians 5:18)


“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, 
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

(1 Peter 5:8)


 “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.”

 (Philippians 4:5)

Excess of all kinds signals a lack of internal stability:
Being pulled into and trapped into Feelings and Ideas, 
Obsessions of all kinds, even "good ones" like Sport, 
and even Religion, which then risks turning believers 
into fanatics.

What we are asked to do is not complicated:
Pray, trust; surrender everything to God; who knows what we need,
live a sober life, a balanced life of work and rest, be aware at all times,
trust in God, and be vigilant with men. 
This spiritual program is not complicated, but it has been proven to be 
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road 
that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate 
and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."
(Matthew 7, 13-14)

Original sin= spiritual disease


Original sin does not just refer to the fall of man long time ago;

more relevant to us; it refers to the sin that causes man to be separated 

from God NOW.


The first and deadliest sin is PRIDE,

it is the root of all evil.


Pride is deeply rooted in western culture, and some countries'

culture are more well known for it than others.

But it is in all of us. 

As parents we are blown up with personal pride when our children do well, 

because we believe it reflects well on us, and even when someone in our 

extended family excels, we let it drop in conversation that we are related to 

this person, as if thus some of that "glory" will somehow shine on us too. 

It is pride that prevents people from admitting they are wrong or that they 

wronged somebody, and therefore the all important asking for forgiveness 

does not materialize.  

It is pride that makes us believe that we are better than others, in whatever 

way, which is the personal judgement of ourselves, and pride will always 

lead to our own  humiliation, sooner or later.



"But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives 
grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and 
he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. 
Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded." 
(James 4, 6-8) 


"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you."
 (James 4, 10)


"But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.  
For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, 
disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, 
slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, 
swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having 
the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people."
 (2 Timothy 3:1-5)


"Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the 
mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let 
him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am 
the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. 
For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”  
(Jeremiah 9:23-24)

 (Proverbs 11:2)

When we achieve something, and when we receive something, 
our only pride should be Our Lord, because it was Him who 
gave it to us. 


" Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord;

  be assured, he will not go unpunished."

(Proverbs 16:5)


"One's pride will bring him low,

but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor." 

(Proverbs 29:23)


 "For though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly,
but the haughty he knows from afar."
 (Psalm 138:6)
 "Do not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not 
you who support the root, but the root that supports you."
 (Romans 11:18)


"Not that we dare to classify or compare ourselves with some of those who 
are commending themselves. But when they measure themselves by one 
another and compare themselves with one another, they are without 
(2 Corinthians 10:12)


Greed (or avarice) is when you are never satisfied, you never have enough,
no matter what it is.  


Lust is most commonly associated with sexual desire, but it can also 
be about money, power or food (gluttony), as distinct from our need for food.
The problem stems from a lack of self control.
Envy, or jealousy, is an atrocious monster, which causes horrendous 
destruction, especially if it is not recognized and acknowledged by 
the person itself; it can even result in death.     
Gluttony, as mentioned above, is a serious sin. 
In some cultures eating a lot of good and rich food is seen as a sign 
of wealth and a good standard of living.

But nowadays we see overeating; eating more than the body needs,
as a sign of mental instability and a lack of self control.
It manifests itself in obesity.
Today we can all observe the  amount
of people around us who falls into that category,
it is horrendous and grotesque.
Anger can often be justified, it arises spontaneously within us.
It is not a sin to feel anger, but it is a sin to "lash out" 
we have to control it.
If somebody actually, in reality did us wrong, 
which caused the anger; a hot feeling, remember that revenge 
is a dish that is best served cold
That is why we have to step back and let events take their course.
We must not interfere with it. 
Laziness is a tricky one, we can all easily find excuses for not 
doing things that ought to be done. 
It has to do with self discipline, and keeping a healthy balance 
between  work and rest. Laziness can also be about selfishness,
letting others carry out tasks for us, in stead of sharing them.
If there is idleness, laziness, or inactivity we shut down spiritually.


Telling lies brings guilt

Inability to forgive brings bitterness, 

Putting oneself first is selfishness,  

Always seeking pleasure and entertainment, 
results in forgetting about God 
Following one's own will and feelings instead of God's 
decrees is disobedience

It all prevents us from living in union with God.
