Health and Nutrition / Re: Any vegans here?

A Catholic would have serious issues with such a practice or agenda.

WHY are you abstaining from any product that comes from animals? Because they "animals are people too"? Because monkeys evolved into man, and so for all we know dolphins and other animals might be intelligent life? Because God didn't give animals to us for our use? Because only cavemen (like the Patriarchs, prophets, Apostles, saints, etc.) would be so primitive as to eat meat? Because there isn't a God in the first place? Because God doesn't know what's good for our health?

Think about it.

Also, whatever health benefits vegetarianism provides, there is NO health benefit to not using "animal products" like leather. The only reason to abstain from leather is due to pagan, new-age, or other non-Catholic beliefs.

Let's put it this way: abstaining from all animals (and animal products) in a vegan manner suggests that "God made a mistake" -- a blasphemy that any Catholic should hold in horror.
This.  Put much better than I could.

No.  "Vegan" and "vegetarian" have two clearly different meanings, neither of which includes anything political.

"Vegetarian" means someone who doesn't eat flesh from animals.

"Vegan" means someone who doesn't eat any animal products, including things like milk and eggs.

These are dictionary definitions.  If you "disagree" with them, I have to wonder why.
ok.  whatever.  You can be a vegan.  Go ahead and ignore reality and go with what your dictionaries tell you.

It seems that others have already done so.

What you seem to want "vegan" to mean already has a word in English, "vegetarian".  Why use the term, "vegan", if not to connote something different?  The rest of society does indeed use it for an unholy idea.  If you still simply "disagree" after reading what has been posted, I have to wonder why.

... you would have to provide actual evidence that the word "vegan" carries with it the baggage you claim.

Crisis in the Church / Re: The Crisis Will Continue

The Magisterium is clearly in error now, has been often in error during the Conciliar Church.
 
Not the "Magisterium" but the "authentic Magisterium", which refers to the person of the " Roman Pontiff" or "the College of  Bishops". That is why the Oath Against Modernism was replaced by the "Doctrinal Preamble" which is the (Ratzinger) "Profession of Faith" and "Oath of Fidelity to the pope" for "submission of will and intellect" to their (heretical) "teachings" since they "do not intend to proclaim these teachings by a definitive act" and know they can't. "Amoris Laetitia" is a good example.
 
 

Quote
Moreover, I adhere with religious submission of will and intellect to the teachings which either the Roman Pontiff or the College of Bishops enunciate when they exercise their authentic Magisterium, even if they do not intend to proclaim these teachings by a definitive act.
(Last paragraph in the modernist "Profession of Faith")

Crisis in the Church / Re: The Crisis Will Continue
« Last post by Maria Auxiliadora on Today at 05:55:23 PM »
At the time of the death of King George VI (a Protestant) in January 1936 Padre Pio had a moment of enlightenment, when he knew that the king had just died and that his soul was saved. I became a Catholic aged 50 and am now over 80 years old. My parents are dead and many other relatives for whom I pray every day. They were all Protestants (at best). I set a lot of store by this anecdote about Padre Pio and by statements such as that of Arb. Lefebvre being discussed here.

I pressed thumb up instead of "quote".

Padre Pio has been gone for many years and many authors have used his name to push their ecumenical agenda and even attack tradition. Let's not forget the false statement refuted by ABL (link below) and the promoting of Garabandal. The rule of faith is Dogma.

Are you referring to St. Pius V: 1566-1572: His Life, Times, Virtues and Miracles in the Aftermath of the Protestant Revolt with a foreword by Cdl. Ottaviani?
One interesting fact I learned about Pope St. Pius V in that book is that he basically Poland by intransigently refusing to grant an annulment to the Polish king, who, like Henry VIII, could not have a male heir:
Quote from: ch. 4 Protestantism & European Diplomacy
The King of Poland was pressing the Holy See for a dissolution of his marriage on a pretext not unlike that of Henry VIII's, namely, that the queen could not bear him a son and he had to have an heir. Several Polish Bishops with ambitious aims and infected by Protestantism, instead of restraining the king were, "in the interests of the State," backing him up. The king's family and court, too, were leaning towards the unorthodox teachings of the Socinians1 at that time being persuasively propagated in Poland. Perceiving the danger of a national schism on a scale such as that of England, Pius V sent Cardinal Commendone to the Polish king who, however, tried by every means to win the Cardinal over to his side. Instead, the experienced Legate, together with the few Bishops that had remained faithful, prevailed upon the others to reaffirm their orthodoxy and hold a council, at which Cardinal Commendone spoke so convincingly of the dissensions and persecutions suffered in England as to persuade them against bringing about a similar break with Rome.

Shaken but unconverted, the king feigned conviction. But no sooner had the Legate left the country than he began repeating his requests for the Holy See to allow introduction of Protestant practices such as a married clergy, Communion under two kinds and freedom for religious sectaries to practice and propagate their several cults. The king's requests were not really made in the hope of obtaining them, as he claimed, for the good of the people, but rather with the design of making the Pope appear unreasonably intransigent by his inevitable refusals, thus gaining popular favor for himself and for the dissolution of his marriage.

Realizing this, Pope Pius intervened directly by letter to those he knew were abetting the king, but without being aware that the Archbishop of Gneszno, chief among them, had meanwhile secretly apostatized.

Again Pius sent Cardinal Commendone to Poland, where this time he found support in the Jesuits who had come into the country to help remedy things; and enough influence was brought to bear upon clergy and people to save the nation from general schism and apostasy. The papal Legate did not leave Poland before getting an official declaration from the king, whose wife had meanwhile died, that he would remain faithful to the religion of his fathers.
Amazing, saintly pope!
