We are not just material beings, but spiritual persons with a need for meaning, purpose, and fulfillment that transcends the visible confines of this world. This longing for transcendence is a longing for truth, goodness, and beauty. Truth, goodness, and beauty are called the transcendentals of being, because they are aspects of being. Everything in existence has these transcendentals to some extent. God, of course, as the source of all truth, goodness, and beauty, has these transcendentals to an infinite degree. Oftentimes, He draws us to Himself primarily through one of these transcendentals. St. Augustine, who was drawn to beauty in all its creaturely forms, found the ultimate beauty he was seeking in God, his creator, the beauty “ever ancient, ever new.”―Sister Gabriella Yi, O.P.

Femen Terrorizers: the pawns of male mastermind Victor Svyatski.

The Canadian culture wars.

For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood;
but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.
—Ephesians 6:12

Some of you might recall the intrusion by FEMEN terrorizers upon the 2014 National March For Life rally held on May 8th in Ottawa. Or perhaps not, since the mainstream media gave its usual coverage of this yearly massively attended event. Which is to say, practically none. This is, of course, little surprise to anyone in the pro-life camp who is familiar with bias in the Canadian media. The media—e.g., CBC and CTV—have chosen to promote the pro-abortion lawless state of our country as a done deal, and so they under report, if at all, large national gatherings that clearly demonstrate that public opinion is not what the ruling cultural elitists and media-types would have Canadians believe.

The so-called mainstream media gave little attention to the March, but did manage to splash news of the intrusion of a pro-abortion protestor and another female accomplice. Had it not been for the nudity of the protestors, news of the March might have been completely omitted from the national airwaves. Thanks FEMENistas, you got us on the six-o'clock news.

When a FEMEN terrorizer attempted to bully the pulpit, so to speak, Archbishop of Québec and Primate of Canada Gérald Cyprien Cardinal Lacroix, ISPX, remained entirely calm and carried on. That the FEMEN terrorista missed the memo that the National March For Life is a family gathering is made apparent by the fact she has little shame when it comes to causing little children, and certainly those children's parents, much alarm. One little girl is clearly shocked, hands over mouth, at the belligerent behaviour of the FEMENista. Another little girl appears to be crying under the shielding hands of a guardian.

Let it be said: FEMEN, for whatever good the women who belong to it claim to be doing, values bullying and assault above the well being of others. FEMEN protesters show little restraint nor consideration when its members terrorize little children and assault law-abiding citizens who have as much right to protest without interference as FEMEN does. On many occasions, members of FEMEN have also engaged in destruction of property: FEMEN activist cuts down large outdoor memorial crucifix in Ukraine. People are right to be concerned about the threat to safety posed by members of FEMEN.

These days we can be sure that protesting angry women will almost certainly be bare chested. The lack of modesty merely reinforces a tired tactic that offends the dignity of woman and confirms that FEMEN promotes hatred of women. FEMEN's violent ideology seeks to impose and reinforce a culture of death, which makes them little different than the islamists who terrorize others in the name of their god and who also, through violent means, attempt to impose their violent ideology on peace loving people.

It should be noted, with no small amount of irony, that the FEMEN movement, so dedicated as it is to liberating women from "oppressive patriarchy", was started and is controlled by a man who is more interested in profiting from the exploitation of women than promoting justice.
Ukraine is not a Brothel, directed by 28-year-old Australian film-maker Kitty Green, has “outed” Victor Svyatski as the mastermind behind the group. Mr Syvatski is known as a “consultant” to the movement.
However, Ms Green reveals that Svyatski is not simply a supporter of Femen but its founder and éminence grise. “It’s his movement and he hand-picked the girls. He hand-picked the prettiest girls because the prettiest girls sell more papers. The prettiest girls get on the front page... that became their image, that became the way they sold the brand,” she says.The Independent, Sunday 22 June 2014: The man who made Femen: New film outs Victor Svyatski as the mastermind behind the protest group and its breast-baring stunts. [Warning: photograph of protesters.]
The article in the Independent continues:
When the Femen founder finally spoke to Ms Green, he sought to justify his role within the organisation and acknowledged the paradox of being a “patriarch” running a feminist protest group. “These girls are weak,” he says in the film.

“They don’t have the strength of character. They don’t even have the desire to be strong. Instead, they show submissiveness, spinelessness, lack of punctuality, and many other factors which prevent them from becoming political activists. ... .”

Mr Svyatski insists to Ms Green that his influence on the group is positive. However, when he is asked directly whether he started Femen “to get girls”, he replies: “Perhaps yes, somewhere in my deep subconscious.”

One of the Femen campaigners talks of the relationship between the women and the movement’s founder as being akin to “Stockholm syndrome”, in which hostages feel sympathy for their captors.

“We are psychologically dependent on him and even if we know and understand that we could do this by ourselves without his help, it’s psychological dependence,” she says.
Enough said?
