How Catholic Community Is Supposed To Work With Backwater Foie Gras’ Ross McKnight
Pride Month Zealots picked the wrong "Louisianais" to blackmail into rainbow submission
“If we don’t stand here, on the last assault of the family, then there’s no more ground left behind us.” - Ross McKnight, Backwater Foie Gras
In addition to honoring June as the month of devotion to Our Lord’s Sacred heart, we should call June “hero month”. June kicks off with St. Charles Lwanga and Companions who were martyred because they resisted the sodomy advances of the sick king of Uganda (June 3rd). We know of the holy heroism of St John The Baptist (his Nativity is the 24th) who will offer up his head, literally, for sacramental marriage that his cousin, Jesus of Nazareth was laying His law down for. We know of the martyrdom of Saints Peter (martyrdom is the 29th) and Paul (commemoration day is the 30th). But what we don’t seem to know very much about are the heroes walking among us right now, men and women who are standing for the faith in the zeitgeist that buggery month has become.

ICYMI Ross had the unmitigated gall to declare his love for Our Lord’s Scared Heart over worshipping the rainbow calf of Wokeback Mountain:
Over at The Federalist, Evita Duffy Alfonso reports what happened next.
Long before the left invented “pride month,” the Catholic Church dedicated June to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a tradition originating from the 17th-century visions of Christ received by French nun St. Margaret Mary Alacoque. Enter Ross McKnight, a Louisiana Catholic father of five and owner of Backwater Foie Gras, whose business is now under attack after he made an Instagram post on Sunday commemorating the Sacred Heart of Jesus that provided his followers with ways they can protect themselves from “false pride” and counter the “attempted coup of the month of June.”
McKnight’s post was fairly innocuous, encouraging his followers to adhere to the traditional liturgical calendar — instead of the new secular one — and to hold onto their French Catholic identity by “enthron[ing] the Sacred Heart in your home this month,” “Wear[ing] the Sacred Heart as a badge wherever you go,” “Pray[ing] the Rosary” in French, and reading his blog post titled, “This Tremendous Weight.”
More from The Federalist….
Since his Instagram post, nearly two-thirds of McKnight’s business has evaporated, putting him and his family in a dire financial situation. Yet when interviewed by The Federalist, McKnight expressed a baffling sense of peace and even joy. “There’s that animal need to have food and shelter and clothing — certainly,” and “I’m concerned,” said McKnight. “But I don’t know how to precisely explain myself … I’ve lost everything overnight, but the suffering is valuable,” he said.
“If we don’t stand here, on the last assault of the family, then there’s no more ground left behind us,” McKnight explained. For him and his wife and children, defending the traditional family unit, their culture, and their faith is more important than anything.

Wow. I haven’t read words like that since last August’s celebration of the feast of Saint Bernard (August 19th) who I quoted in an address I gave to a Congress held by some dear friends of mine in Michigan.
How can you not know that we live in a period of chastisement and ruin? The enemy of mankind has caused the breath of corruption to fly over all regions; we behold nothing but unpunished wickedness. Neither the laws of men nor the laws of religion have sufficient power to check the depravity of customs and the triumph of the wicked. The demon of heresy has taken possession of the chair of truth, and God has sent forth His malediction upon His sanctuary.
Why do you hesitate to repair so many evils; to revenge so many outrages? Will you allow the infidels to contemplate in peace the ravages they have committed on Christian people?
Remember that their triumph will be a subject for grief to all ages and an eternal opprobrium upon the generation that has endured it. Yes, the living God has charged me to announce to you that He will punish them who shall not have defended Him against His enemies.
Let us take great joy in knowing that in addition to the Ross McKnight’s there are heroic women like the Slaves to The Immaculate Heart of Mary in Still River, MA (and h/t Richmond New Hampshire). In 2015, the Slaves withdrew from their beloved Saint Patrick’s Day parade when that scion of fake catholic piety Marty Walsh introduced buggerers to the parade. The Slaves responded by recording this ditty set to “The Leaving of Liverpool.
Recently the same sisters have recorded a tune that defends the Traditional Latin Mass which is under increasing assault from inside the Catholic Church, titles The Mass of Ages. My friend, the erudite and tireless defender of The Faith (dicere de viris heroicis!), C. Joseph Doyle wrote of the sisters latest…
While The Leaving Of Boston was based upon a traditional Irish work, dating back to the 19th century, The Mass of All Time repurposes a modern Irish masterpiece, Phil Coulter's The Town I Loved So Well---his 1973 elegy to his war-torn hometown of Derry during the Troubles.
The beautiful lyrics of The Mass of All Time are affecting, edifying and resolutely Catholic. They hearken back to Penal times, when, despite every oppression, the Irish were determined to preserve the Faith and the Mass of their fathers.
Although we are surrounded by chaos and immorality, Catholic culture, sustained by the traditional Faith of the Catholic Church and the ancient liturgy of the Roman Rite, is alive and well in one corner, at least, of Massachusetts.

There’s 19 days remaining in June and Celebrate Humility Month, which, as McKnight’s story shows can give “simple farmers” and simple— (insert vocation here) e.g. radio guys, plenty of opportunities to perform “public acts of catholic piety” as my radio colleague Fiorella de Maria put it recently.
So heroic gentlemen of New Christendom, give us something heroic to talk & write about, Our Lady is relying upon us.
Saint Joan d’Arc & Our Lady of Fatima, ora pro nobis!
