Babies burned for electricity in British Columbia: Matrix or Moloch?

From Life News, we learn that one Marion County Commissioner was horrified when she learned that aborted and miscarried babies were burned:
The contract with Stericycle, the company bringing the waste from B.C. and other places in the Northwest, has been in place for the past 5-7 years. The “waste,” from sharps to amputated digits to aborted babies, is put into red bags at the facilities (abortion clinics, hospitals, etc) where it is “collected,” then sealed into boxes. The boxes are not opened again. They are brought to the plant and burned in a process that generates electricity. Commissioner Carlson said: “I am horrified. There are not enough strong words to describe my feelings. This will not continue…I don’t even want to call it ‘material;’ these are babies.” She also said she wants to pursue an in-depth investigation into “who knew, when they knew and how long they knew.”
A. Matrix Machines

This story reminds me of the movie, The Matrix:
The Matrix is a 1999 American science fiction action film written and directed by The Wachowski Brothers, starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, and Joe Pantoliano. It depicts a dystopian future in which reality as perceived by most humans is actually a simulated reality called "the Matrix", created by sentient machines to subdue the human population, while their bodies' heat and electrical activity are used as an energy source. Computer programmer "Neo" learns this truth and is drawn into a rebellion against the machines, which involves other people who have been freed from the "dream world".
 At least, the Machines kept the humans alive and only harvests their body heat and electrical energy.  To accomplish this, they placed humans in a dream world, a simulated reality.   But today's Machines now harvests the remains of aborted babies for electrical energy: the end is the same, but the means are different.  I guess throwing undesirable babies from a cliff to a baby dump like the Spartans in the movie 300 is not enough.  No child must be left behind: all must serve the comforts of today's society, either as laborers or as heat energy source.  And we live in a dream-like world, immersed in the culture that rejects babies through contraception and abortion, as propounded in the TV, radio, and social media--a culture that continually makes women believe the lie noted by Peter Kreeft: "This is my body." Even if that body contains the unborn child.  And so we now arrive to the ghastly holocaust that mocks the Eucharist:
Take this, all of you, and eat it: for this is my body which will be given up for you.   
Take this, all of you, and drink from it: for this is the chalice of my blood, the blood of new and ever-lusting covenant, which will be poured out for you and for many for the gods of unpregnancy and electricity. Do this in memory of me. 
It is time for humans to fight against the Machines.  But what are these Machines in our real world?  These are the government and non-government organizations.
  1. The Philippine government under PNoy.  The government is pushing for the implementation of the RH Law and only the Supreme Court gets in the way: eight of the provisions of the RH Law was struck down by the Court as unconstitutional.
  2. The US government under  Obama.  I am sure there is pressure from the US government for the Philippines to pass the RH Law in order to avail of US economic packages.  Now that he is coming to the Philippines, we must be wary, for he is America's most pro-abortion president.  Like Aquino, Obama is reeling from the opposition of the Catholic Church to the HHS mandate which transgressed religious freedom like the RH Law. His Health Secretary Sabellius already resigned.  But Obama, like Saruman, has still the poison of his voice. Obama can mesmerize the crowd just like Aquino, or even much better.  Since the Philippine Constitution is the hindrance to the promotion of abortifacients, Obama may suggest for the revision of the Constitution to restore the deleted provisions of the RH Law.
  3. Planned Parenthood, Likhaan, and other Pro-Abortion NGOs.  These organizations are only interested in the contraception and abortion business.  The RH law would provide condom and pill manufacturers a sure demand for these goods, because the Philippine government would allot funds for the purchase of these contraceptives, though pill manufacturers would have more difficult time now since abortifacients are not allowed by the Supreme Court.  The battle now shifts to funding of the RH Law by the Congress.
These pro-RH Law Machines keep on brainwashing us that the Catholic Church is evil and that the RH Law is a liberation from the chains of dogma and superstition.  But it is actually the other way around:  it is the Catholic Church which has always proposed a liberation from ideas of our Age, so that we don't become children of our Age, but children of Our Father in Heaven.  

B. Moloch's Holocaust

Contraception and abortion are not Modern Ideas.  They are Old Pagan ideas.   What we are currently witnessing is a relapse of civilization into Paganism, because of eclipse of Catholicism from public life.  As St. Jean Vianney would say, "Leave a parish for twenty years without a priest, and they will end by worshiping the beasts there." (Letter of Pope Benedict XVI on the Year of the Priests)

The burning of babies as an offering to pagan bestial idols is described in the Book of Leviticus.  This is what the Lord said:
You shall not have sexual relations with your neighbor’s wife,* m defiling yourself with her. 21 n You shall not offer any of your offspring for immolation to Molech,* thus profaning the name of your God. I am the LORD. 22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman;o such a thing is an abomination. 23 You shall not have sexual relations with an animal, defiling yourself with it; nor shall a woman set herself in front of an animal to mate with it; that is perverse.p 24 Do not defile yourselves by any of these things, because by them the nations whom I am driving out of your way have defiled themselves. 25 And so the land has become defiled, and I have punished it for its wickedness, and the land has vomited out its inhabitants. (Lv 18:20-25)
Sexual relations with your neighbor's wife (adultery), with a fellow male (homosexuality), or with an animal (bestiality) are already present-day realities as exhibited in pornographic magazines, videos, and films that wormed their way into the TV shows in our homes.  So the remaining one, the offering of the offspring for immolation to Moloch, should not be far behind. Who is Moloch? According to some rabbinical traditions:
A rabbinical tradition attributed to the Yalkout of Rabbi Simeon,[8] says that the idol was hollow and was divided into seven compartments, in one of which they put flour, in the second turtle-doves, in the third a ewe, in the fourth a ram, in the fifth a calf, in the sixth an ox, and in the seventh a child, which were all burned together by heating the statue inside.
Other commentators say that Moloch is similar to one Carthaginian idol Kronos:
Paul G. Mosca, in his thesis described below, translates Cleitarchus' paraphrase of a scholium to Plato's Republic as: "There stands in their midst a bronze statue of Kronos, its hands extended over a bronze brazier, the flames of which engulf the child. When the flames fall upon the body, the limbs contract and the open mouth seems almost to be laughing until the contracted body slips quietly into the brazier." Thus it is that the 'grin' is known as 'sardonic laughter,' since they die laughing. Diodorus Siculus (20.14) wrote: "There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire." (Wikipedia)
Looks familiar?  It is similar to the British Columbia's Marion County incinerator.

Let me end this article with a prophecy from the Book of Ezekiel:
Therefore say to the house of Israel: Thus says the Lord GOD: Will you defile yourselves in the way your ancestors did? Will you lust after their detestable idols? 31 By offering your gifts, by making your children pass through the fire, you defile yourselves with all your idols even to this day. Shall I let myself be consulted by you, house of Israel? As I live—oracle of the Lord GOD—I swear I will not let myself be consulted by you! (Ez 20:30-31)

5 similarities between Easter Liturgy and Eagle's song after the Fall of Sauron

Let the angelic choirs of Heaven now rejoice; let the divine Mysteries rejoice; and let the trumpet of salvation sound forth the victory of so great a King. Let the earth also rejoice, made radiant by such splendor; and, enlightened with the brightness of the eternal King, let it know that the darkness of the whole world is scattered. Let our mother the Church also rejoice, adorned with the brightness of so great a light; and let this temple resound with the loud acclamations of the people. 
This is similar to the song of the great Eagle announcing the Fall of Sauron and the Return of King Aragorn to Gondor and in all the lands of the West:
Sing now, ye people of the Tower of Anor,
for the Realm of Sauron is ended for ever,
and the Dark Tower is thrown down. 
Sing and rejoice, ye people of the Tower of the Guard,
for your watch hath not been in vain,
and the Black Gate is broken,
and your King hat passed through,
and he is victorious. 
Sing and be glad, all ye children of the West,
for your King shall come again,
and he shall dwell among you
all the days of your life. 
And the Tree that has withered shall be renewed,
and he shall plant it in the high places,
and the City shall be blessed. 
Sing all ye people!  
LOTR p. 963.
Let's enumerate the similarities between the two texts:

1. Rejoice
  • "Let the angelic choirs of Heaven now rejoice; let the divine Mysteries rejoice...Let the earth also rejoice... Let our mother the Church also rejoice."  Easter is a time for rejoicing.
  • "Sing and rejoice, ye people of the Tower of the Guard...Sing and be glad, all ye children of the West."  The guards defend the Steward and the burial places of kings.  Beregond, one of the guards of the Tower, killed two of the guards in the effort to save Faramir who was burning in fever and who Denethor his father wishes to burn in a pyre with him (LOTR p. 855).  It is in the Tower that Denethor used the palantir to see the events in the outside world, enabling him to know much, in order to prepare Gondor against war: "Though the Stewards deemed that it was a secret kept only by themselves, long ago I guessed that here in the White Tower, one at least of the Seven Seeing Stones was preserved.  In the days of his wisdom Denethor would not presume to use it to challenge Sauron, knowing the limits of his own strength.  But his wisdom failed; and I fear that as the periol of his realm grew he looked in the Stone and was deceived: far too often, I guess, since Boromir departed.  He was too great to be subdued to the will of the Dark Power, he saw nonetheless only those things which that Power permitted him to see. The knowledge which he obtained was, doubtless, often of service to him; yet the vision of the great might of Mordor that ws shown to him fed the despair of his heart until it overthrew his mind." (LOTR p. 856)
2. Kingdom of Darkness is Destroyed
  • "Let the earth also rejoice, made radiant by such splendor; and, enlightened with the brightness of the eternal King, let it know that the darkness of the whole world is scattered."
  • "Realm of Sauron is ended for ever, and the Dark Tower is thrown down... the Black Gate is broken." Tolkien describes the fall of the Dark Tower vividly when the One Ring fell with Gollum into into the Fires of Mount Doom: "Towers fell and mountains slid: walls crumbled and melted, crashing down; vast spires of smoke and spouting steams went billowing up, up, until they toppled like an overwhelming wave, and its wild crest curled and came foaming down upon the land. And then at last over the miles between there came a rumble, rising to a deafening crash and roar; the earth shook, the plain heaved and cracked, and Orodruin reeled.  Fire belched from its riven summit.  The skies burst into thunder seared with lightning.  Down like lashing whips fell a torrent of black rain.  And into the heart of the storm, with a cry that pierced  all other sounds, tearing the clouds asunder, the Nazgul came, shooting like flaming bolts, as caught in the fiery ruin of hill and sky they crackled, withered, and went out." (LOTR p. 947)
3. Return of the King
  • "Let the trumpet of salvation sound forth the victory of so great a King...  enlightened with the brightness of the eternal King
  • "Your King hat passed through, and he is victorious....for your King shall come again, and he shall dwell among you all the days of your life."  It has been a long time since the Gondor had a King.  Denethor is only a Steward and not a King, in the same way as Pepin the Short, the father of Charlemagned, was before not a King of Franks, but only a Mayor of the Palace.  Earnur was the last king of Gondor crowned in 2043 (LOTR, p. 1052).  The Witch-King challenged him to battle and Earnur was never seen again; the Witch-King was later killed not by a man, but by a hobbit (Merry) and by a woman (Eowyn).  After no news of Earnur came, the Steward ruled Gondor and the Stewardship became hereditary.  "Nonetheless the Stewards never sat on the ancient throne; and they wore no crown, and held no sceptre.  The bore a white rod only as the token of their office; and their banner was white without charge; but the royal banner had been sable, upon which was displayed a white tree in blossom beneath seven stars." (LOTR p. 1053).  The royal banner was only unfurled again when Aragorn returned together with the Black Ships in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields (15 March 3019): "There flowered a White Tree, and that was for Gondor; but Seven Stars were about it, and a high crown above it, the signs of Elendil that no lord had borne for years beyond count.  And the stars flamed with the sunlight, for they were wrought of gems by Arwen daughter of Elrond; and the crown was bright in the morning, for it was wrought of mithril and gold." (LOTR p. 847) 
4. Church and the City
  • "Let our mother the Church also rejoice, adorned with the brightness of so great a light; and let this temple resound with the loud acclamations of the people. 
  • "The City shall be blessed. Sing all ye people!" Here is what happened to Gondor in the reign of King Aragorn: "In his time the City was made more fair that it had ever been, even in the days of its first glory; and it was filled with trees and with fountains, and its gates were wrought of mithril and steel, and its streets were paved with white marble; and the Folk of the Mountain laboured in it, and the Folk of the Wood rejoiced to come there; and all was healed and made good, and the houses were filled with men and women and the laughter of children, and no window was blind nor any courtyeard empty; and after the ending of the Third Age of the world into the new age it preserved the memory and the glory of the years that were gone." (LOTR p. 968)
5. The Cross and the White Tree
  • The cross is a dead tree and is a symbol of death.  But Christ made the cross the tree of life.  That is why we plant the cross on the high places to proclaim the Triumph of Christ over Death.  As St. Paul proclaimed: "Death is swallowed up in victory. 55Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”d 56The sting of death is sin,* and the power of sin is the law.e 57But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Cor 15:54-57) 
  • "And the Tree that has withered shall be renewed, and he shall plant it in the high places."  Here is how Gandalf helped Aragorn find the sapling of the White Tree: "'Turn your face from the green world, and look where all seems barren and cold!' said Gandalf. Then Aragorn turned, and there was a stony slope behind him running down from the skirts of the snow; and as he looked he was aware that alone there in the waste a growing thing stood.  And he climbed to it, and sway that out of the very edge of the snow there sprang a spaling tree no more than three foot high.  Already it had put forth young leaves long and shapely,  dark above and silver beneath, and upon its slender crown it bore one small cluster of lowers whose white petals shone like the sunlit snow....Aragorn laid his hand gently to the sapling, and lo! it seemed to hold only lightly to the earth, and it was removed without hur; and Aragorn bore it back to the Citadel.  Then the withered tree was uprooted, but with reverence; and they did not burn it, but laid it to rest in the silence of Rath Dinen.  And Aragorn planted the new tree in the court by the fountain, and swiftly and gladly it began to grow, and when the month of June entered in it was laden with blossoms." (LOTR pp. 971-972)
