As Morning Joe lionized Rob Reiner and his one day play on Prop 8 a much more interesting story has been taking place that the MSM has no interest in.
Catholic mom blogger Stacy Trasancos put up a post a few weeks ago concerning taking her kids to the park.
The same people who say I shouldn’t impose my morality on them, are imposing immorality on me and my children to the point that I literally have a hard time even leaving my home anymore to do something as simple as visit the park. And this is freedom?
Now understand this. Stacy’s blog is a small blog, part of a circle of Catholic Mom Blogs etc. Looking at her twitter numbers they aren’t spectacular
The blog post was found by members of the Gay community and linked worldwide and it resulted in a gigantic traffic spike…and some of the most hate filled and disgusting comments that the peace and tolerance crowd can produce:
The LGBT community has now linked to this at reddit, and I just got the 824th comment and screenshot it. [“What a c*nt. I hope her children are kidnapped, raped, and murdered. It would be better than having them grow up with such a twisted f*ck for a mother!”] I also have the IP address of the commenter. Please stop threatening my family.
My friend Stacy Trasancos, a fellow Catholic mom who is concerned about the world her children have to grow up in, is under attack from the ‘gay rights’ community for daring to write what she thinks about public displays of affection. She’s received death threats, which she has reported to law enforcement, and is naturally questioning whether or not she should continue to simply speak publicly about her beliefs.
I believe it is important at this time for the Catholic blogosphere to come to her aid by offering support in the form of encouragement and in the form of condemning the tactics of the ‘gay rights’ movement against people of faith who simply would like to take their kids to the park without having to risk exposure to depravity, not to mention who would simply like to write what they think about things on a blog.
This is a great victory for all orthodox Catholic moms in America when Perez Hilton, the most popular “gay” blogger in America, is found to be such a weakling who is so full of the fear (yes, fear) of Catholicism that he cannot pass on the chance to point to this average, every day Catholic mom in Massachusetts and call her a “homophobe”. This is not being done to her because she is “Stacy Trasancos” (he has no idea who Stacy is personally and uniquely) and not because she has done something herself that is wrong. It is being done to her because she thinks the very same way every other orthodox Catholic mom in America thinks on this issue, myself included. She is enduring this for all of us….and we are grateful to her for her strength in this time of trial.
There is an old saying that you don’t punch down, but I think her foes were not punching down, if you are hitting a person with faith in God then you are always punching up.
Consider: Perez Hilton is an internationally known pompous ass celebrity with a lot of people who follow him, yet he is afraid of the views of a Catholic Mom with a couple of hundred followers on facebook and a small column in a weekly diocesan paper.
It sure sounds like someone is insecure in their beliefs, has the actual fear of God, or both.
You duped me, O LORD, and I let myself be duped;
you were too strong for me, and you triumphed.
All the day I am an object of laughter;
everyone mocks me.
I say to myself, I will not mention him,
I will speak in his name no more.
But then it becomes like fire burning in my heart,
imprisoned in my bones;
I grow weary holding it in, I cannot endure it.
In fact all of the August 28th readings would fit perfectly.
She also has an answer to a person who decided to play logical substitution but left out a bit:
See, while Catholics will read this, I can promise you with 100% certainty that there will be no herds of Christians following each other over to find you and tell you that you are a hateful, bigoted, Catholic-o-phobe. Absolutely no one would even consider telling you anonymously that they hope your children are “kidnapped, raped and murdered.” There probably won’t even be any more emotional reaction than a shrug because we’ve heard it all before, and we realize we stand among a rich history of saints and martyrs far better than us who have suffered for the preservation of our Faith. We don’t demand that you approve of us.
This weekend she called into DaTechGuy on DaRadio (Saturday 10 a.m. EST WCRN in case you don’t know) and told a bit of her story. As of that weekend she has been given a permanent standing invitation to be on the show.
End result? Thanks to the efforts of all those who have hated her and threatened her and her children she now has the means at her disposal to give her opinion and thoughts to an audience in 6 states with 50,000 watts of power to back her up and I intend to continue keep that means available to her as long as I can.
I suspect a few of you are upset at that, maybe even some of those who threatened her but there are two things that keep me from being worried. The first being the job description:
If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you. Remember the word I spoke to you, ‘No slave is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. And they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know the one who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin; but as it is they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me also hates my Father. If I had not done works among them that no one else ever did, they would not have sin; but as it is, they have seen and hated both me and my Father. John 15:18-24
And the second? I’ve found for some reason the type of people who have no problem threatening women and their small children tend to hesitate to make the same threats to adult Sicilian men. Odd isn’t it?
Final thought: Wouldn’t you think that threats against a mother of 7 and her children might be newsworthy? I would have thought so, but apparently such threats might portray a community that the MSM supports in a bad light, so no seat next to Rob Reiner for her.
Update: On Sept 24 Jose Trasancos came on the show and for the second time in a week was able to give his opinions with 50,000 watts of power, For Perez Hilton and that renowned defender of women and children Dianne Williamson it equals EPIC FAIL…
…also anyone who met her husband would think twice about threatening his family
