Chopped Liver No More
Thomas A. Droleskey
Well, I am chopped liver no more.
The few of you who have been reading this website regularly since its debut eighty-six months ago now might recall that I had asked ("So, what am I? Chopped liver?") in response to an "intelligence report" of the Christophobic Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Alabama (not Birmingham, Alabama, as I stated mistakenly in the original posting of this article), about what was termed the "dirty dozen" "hate groups" run by "radical traditional Catholics." Among those groups were Catholic Family News, The Fatima Crusader, The Remnant, the Saint Joseph Forum in South Bend, Indiana, Tradition in Action, the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary/Saint Benedict Center in Richmond, New Hampshire (which has since been "reconciled" to the counterfeit church of conciliarism), Legion of St. Louis/IHS Press in Norfolk, Virginia, Catholic Apologetics International, the Society of Saint Pius X (itself soon to be "reconciled" with Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, a subject of a forthcoming article on this site), Catholic Counterpoint in Broomhall, Pennsylvania, Dr. Robert Sungenis's Catholic Apologetics International in State College, Pennsylvania, Dr. E. Michael Jones's Culture Wars/Fidelity magazines, Omni Christian Book Club in Palmdale, California, and Mount Saint Mary's Parish, Spokane, Washington. Given all the articles that I had written concerning the influence of the organized forces of naturalism that can be labeled as Judeo-Masonry to institutionalize the anti-Incarnational ethos of Modernity that is the foundation of the contemporary civil state, I wondered why I had been left off the list.
I wonder no more. I am chopped liver no more.
Let me explain.
Although I check the Alexa web rankings for this site once a week or so, I rarely click on the "number of sites linking" into this one. I did so yesterday, Easter Saturday, April 14, 2012. Most of the links seemed pretty innocuous. One, however, caught my attention immediately: Southern Poverty Law Center Says Six Hate Groups Active in the Tri-State Area. The link sent me to a page on the website of Fox 19 News in Cincinnati, Ohio. Here is the story that they published (and, it appears, broadcast) on March 9, 2012:
CINCINNATI (FOX19) - -
Hate groups are active in West
Chester, West College Corner, Cincinnati, Alexandria, and Union,
according to an annual report released by the Southern Poverty Law
Center. The SPLC is a group known for tracking and suing Ku Klux Klan groups, putting some of them out of business.
The SPLC says a group called the United
Northern and Southern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan has a location in West
College Corner IN, a tiny town in Union County contiguous with College
Corner, OH, which is northwest of Oxford. Online articles say this is
the Indiana state office for the group, which says it is a more modern
version of the Klan, and claims membership in a number of states.
The SPLC says the Nation of Islam, which is a
large and visible group nationally, Dr. Louis Farrakhan's group, has a
presence in Cincinnati, though a local address or website is hard to
come by. Years ago they had a large facility in College Hill. The SPLC
also says The National Alliance, a white supremacist group, is active
in Cincinnati. That group's national website claims a presence here and in 7 other places, and gives toll-free
hotline number for the group. Hate fliers attributed to the group have
shown up overnight in several neighborhoods around the Tri-State in
The report also mentions Christ or Chaos of
West Chester. They describe it as a group embracing "Radical
Traditional Catholicism", which they say "may make up the largest single
group of anti-Semites in America". The SPLC says that these groups
reject Vatican II and hold masses in Latin, they should not be confused
with other groups who do so out of tradition. Christ or Chaos has a website that is primarily devoted to the writings of a Dr. Thomas A. Drolesky and appears to be run by him.
The SPLC lists two Christian Identity groups
in Northern Kentucky. They describe Christian Identity as an ideology
that God's chosen people are the racial groups that were found in
Northwest Europe, like the Anglo-Saxons, Celts, Germanics peoples, and
Scandinavians. One of the places mentioned is Fellowship of God's
Covenant People in Union, which operates a website that lists two pastors and has sections on "Jewish Ritual Murders" and
"Abraham Lincoln, Political Tyrant". The other, Kinsman Redeemer
Ministries of Alexandria, has a website that espouses similar views. (Southern Poverty Law Center Says Six Hate Groups Active in the Tri-State Area.)
Other than the misspelling of my name (I mean, Mr. Todd, it's right there in somewhere around 1600 articles), this is, of course, a shoddy piece of reporting, something that I tried to explain in an e-mail to the reporter whose name appeared on the Fox 19 website, a Richard Todd:
Dear Mr. Todd:
I have, by sheer happenstance, come upon a news story with your byline dated March 9, 2012.
As one who is a trained academic and has a great deal of experience in
investigative journalism, I find it very interesting that you printed
(and perhaps broadcast) a story carrying a gratuitous assertion about my
writing made by the notoriously anti-Catholic Southern Poverty Law
Center without even bothering to contact me. Are the assertions of the
Southern Poverty Law Center infallible and beyond criticism? Are their
supposed "haters" to be denied any opportunity to refute these baseless
First of all, my website is not a "group." It is the continuation of the
work that began with a printed journal of the same name in 1996.
Although there are about five hundred "unique" visitors to my site each
day, only about three hundred people, at the very most, bother to read
Second, for the Southern Poverty Law Center to be correct, Mr. Todd,
then Saint Peter himself would have been guilty of "hate" when he
exhorted the Jews who heard his discourse on Pentecost Sunday to convert
to the Catholic Faith. Three thousand did so. This is not "hate." This
is the fulfillment of the mission that the Divine Redeemer had given the
Eleven before He Ascended to the Father's right hand in glory on
Ascension Thursday, forty days after His Easter victory over sin and
death by means of His Resurrection.
Third, you seem to be misinformed about the Immemorial Mass of Tradition as it is in se a refutation of the the "Second" Vatican Council, which is why it had
to be eradicated and why those groups that are "permitted" to offer a
modernized version of it must remain silent about apostasies that many
within the structures of the conciliar structure recognize are offensive
to God and harmful to souls.
Permit me to send you a link to an article of mine written over five
years ago now that referred to an earlier Christophobic effort on the
part of the Southern Poverty Law Center to smear traditional Catholic
groups that adhere to nothing other than the immutable teaching of the
God-Man that formed the very foundation of civilization for over a
thousand years as various barbaric tribes and pagan peoples were
converted to Catholicism in Europe and elsewhere: Hating Without Distinction.
It is a long article. You may not have the time or the inclination to
read it. In the interest of the slogan "fair and balanced," Mr. Todd, I
think that the least you can do is to include a link to this article as
it is my definitive refutation of the attempts by the Southern Poverty
Law Center to intimidate Catholics who adhere to the immutable Catholic
Faith into silence about what they know to be true.
Thomas A. Droleskey, Ph.D.
What appears to have happened here is this: the Southern Poverty Law Center issued some kind of press release that was run pretty much en toto by Fox 19 News. The information provided to Fox 19 News, no matter the exact form that it took, was accepted entirely uncritically as being unquestionably factual. It is not for nothing that some refer to the "lamestream media."
I should note, though, that it was"sheer happenstance" that I found the Fox 19 News report only on the natural level. It was solely within the Providence of God that I did so.
Well, here I sent, right smack at three o'clock in the morning on Low Sunday, in a old recliner chair in a small living room of a manufactured house. Some kid of "group." Well, Chase, our four year-old beagle is asleep near a sofa within an arm's reach of my chair. Perhaps he is part of the "group." Maybe it's my wife and daughter who are fast asleep. Maybe it's the few of you who read these articles, people scattered about the world, many of whom don't even agree with what I. write! Some group.
The fact that Mr. Todd could take seriously the gratuitous assertions of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is notorious for seeking to make money off of its "special alerts" and "intelligence reports" as it seeks to intimidate "radical traditional Catholics" from even expressing themselves in defense of the immutable teaching of the Catholic Church, without even sending an e-mail by way of asking me to comment simply makes the point that I have made repeatedly on this site: that those who reject the Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and hate the very mention of His Name, no less of the doctrine of His Social Kingship over men and their nations, control the "mainstream media" to such an extent that their assertions about various "hate groups" are taken at face value without even doing those accused the simple benefit, if even perfunctory, of a request for comment.
Ah, yes, Fox News, "fair and balanced."
I think not.
Winds That Blow From the North
The People's Republic of Canada has always been about five to ten years ahead of "politically correct" trends here in the United States of America. That is, naturalists in the civil government in Canada, having a population of only thirty four million people, have long used our neighbor to the north as a grand laboratory of social experimentation and "political correctness." It has long been considered a "hate crime," in practice if not in actual point of law, to oppose openly the wanton slaughter of the innocent preborn and the promotion of perverse sins against nature and special "rights" for those who commit them.
To wit, it was in February of 1999, that I was held up at the Canada border while driving my 1995 Saturn station wagon filled to the brim with copies of Christ or Chaos and other publications of mine. I was questioned at length concerning the purpose of my visit to Canada, whereupon I explained that I was going to speak at a Catholic forum (a regional Wanderer Forum) at Saint Clement's Church in Ottawa, Ontario. It was immediately thereafter that I was told to wait until there could be an inspection of my materials as I was asked repeatedly, "Are you bringing in any 'hate' literature into this country? Anything that opposes the 'rights of women' to 'choose' what to do with their bodies? Any opposition to 'gay' people and their lifestyle?" I explained that I held to the Catholic Faith, which rejects sin while exhorting the sinner to convert as he seeks out the ineffable mercy of the Divine Redeemer in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance. This only got me in more trouble, and it is with reluctance that the senior officer, perhaps fearing an incident, permitted me entry into the country, putting me seriously behind schedule as a result.
Canada has, of course, gone way beyond this now:
TORONTO, Ontario, April 4, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com)
– Catholic schools will no longer be allowed to teach the Catechism’s
doctrine that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered,” says a
cabinet minister in Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty’s government.
As politicians debated a bill that would force Catholic schools to
launch gay clubs on March 29th, Member of Provincial Parliament Glen
Murray (Toronto Centre) lashed out against Ontario’s bishops over
Catholic teaching on homosexuality.
“I have to say to the bishops: ‘You’re not allowed to do that
anymore,’” said Murray, an open homosexual who serves as McGuinty’s
Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, according to the Hansard transcript.
“I’m not allowed to say to the Catholics—nor should I—or to other
Christians or Muslims or Jews, that because of your faith you’re
intrinsically disordered,” he continued.
“I would never say to you that anything that goes on in your family
with the person you love—can you imagine me describing a
husband-and-wife relationship as inherently depraved?” he added.
Suresh Dominic of Campaign Life Catholics said Murray’s comments
“amount to a declaration of war against the Catholic Church and all
people who support traditional moral values.”
“We’ve been saying all along that McGuinty wants to dictate what the
Church can teach in its schools and here it is straight from the
government’s mouth,” Dominic added.
Murray made the comments in a debate on Bill 13, known as the Accepting Schools Act,
which seeks to impose tougher consequences, including expulsion, for
“bullying and hate-motivated actions,“ but has been largely framed
around the issue of homosexuality.
The bill requires all schools, including the publicly-funded Catholic
schools, to start clubs for homosexual students, which can be called
“gay-straight alliance or another name.”
Over 2,000 parents and concerned citizens rallied outside Queen’s Park last Thursday calling for the bill’s defeat.
Pro-family advocates charge that gay-straight alliances encourage the
normalization and affirmation of the homosexual lifestyle, and promote
homosexual activism by tying youth into a cross-continent network of
And Ontario’s Catholic bishops have opposed the controversial clubs,
saying they encourage early self-identification as homosexual, and have
instead begun setting up a network of clubs under the name “Respecting
The anti-bullying bill follows a year-long campaign to force
gay-straight alliances on the Catholic schools, but activists have
nevertheless been dissatisfied, charging that the bill stops short of
forcing the GSA name.
As a result, Ontario’s New Democratic Party has promised an amendment that would require schools to use the name “gay-straight alliance.”
Despite Murray’s statement that the bishops are “not allowed” to
teach Catholic teaching on homosexuality, in the same speech at the
legislature he said: “There’s no one here that’s suggesting that we
shouldn’t teach a Catholic perspective in our schools.”
“It is about celebrating diversity. It isn’t about taking Catholic
teaching out of Catholic schools,” he continued. “It’s about putting
life-affirming, positive images and stories around gay and lesbian
children, Muslim children, kids and women of all shapes.”
Murray’s comments are the most clear public statement from the
government thus far that it intends to forbid Catholic teaching on
homosexuality in the Catholic schools. The right of Ontario’s Catholic
schools to receive public funding while imparting the Catholic faith is
guaranteed under Canada’s Constitution.
In January 2010, a Ministry of Education spokeswoman had refused to answer direct questions from LifeSiteNews as to whether the government’s
“equity and inclusive education strategy” would be used to forbid the
controversial Catholic teaching.
In April 2011, another Ministry spokesperson said the mandatory homosexual clubs could not help students to “reform their sexuality.”
In the fall, former Minister of Education Kathleen Wynne said the education system is the government’s “single most important”
avenue to tackle “homophobia.” She said she was “very disappointed” by
the refusal of Catholic school boards’ to allow gay-straight alliances
but that she expects the boards “will all come around.”
Current Minister of Education Laurel Broten has labeled opponents Bill 13’s pro-family opponents as “homophobic.”
In December, Murray said that by 2013 all prospective teachers in the
province, both for the Catholic and public school boards, will be
required to undergo focused training in “sexual orientation” and “gender diversity.”
Premier Dalton McGuinty, who identifies himself as a Catholic, has said that he aims to change the province’s “attitudes” on homosexuality, noting it’s a process that “should begin in the home.” (Government minister rebukes bishops on Catholic.)
So much for the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law. So much for God's destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha for their sins against nature. So much for Saint Paul the Apostle himself:
 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness
and injustice of those men that detain the truth of God in injustice:  Because that which is known of God is manifest in them. For God hath manifested it unto them.  For the invisible things of him, from the creation of the world, are
clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made; his eternal
power also, and divinity: so that they are inexcusable.
 Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God,
or given thanks; but became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish
heart was darkened.  For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.  And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness
of the image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and of fourfooted
beasts, and of creeping things.  Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves.  Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the
creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their
women have changed the natural use into that use which is against
nature.  And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the
women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men
working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense
which was due to their error.  And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered
them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not
convenient;  Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice,
wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity,
whisperers,  Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  Foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy.  Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who
do such things, are worthy of death; and not only they that do them, but
they also that consent to them that do them. (Romans 1: 18-32.)
No, one cannot adhere to the plain words of Sacred Scripture, written under the infallible inspiration of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost. One must adhere to what mere mortals, whose bodies are destined one day for the corruption of the grave until the General Resurrection on the Last Day, determine is "infallible" and beyond question or criticism. What began in Canada has now, of course, become quite institutionalized here in the United States of America, the direct result of many factors, including, of course, the very falsehoods of unrestricted "freedom of speech" and "freedom of press" and "freedom of religion" that were bound by their very insidious natures to result in the tyranny of prevailing trends and the repression of those who dare to dissent from them.
Sloganeering Must Be Used to Squelch Truth
We have returned to the era of the Sophists of ancient Greece, something that philosopher and Catholic convert Simone Weil noted around eighty years ago:
"It is as though we had returned to the age of Protagoras and the
Sophists, the age when the art of persuasion--whose modern equivalent is
advertising slogans, publicity, propaganda meetings, the press, the
cinema, and radio--took the place of thought and controlled the fate of
cities and accomplished coups d'etat. So the ninth book of Plato's
Republic looks like a description of contemporary events." (Simone Weil,
quoted in Russell Kirk, The Roots of American Order.)
Relativists believe that there
are no moral absolutes, that the morality of individual acts is
determined by a variety of variable factors, including, although from
limited to, the motivation of those involved and the particular set of
circumstances that exist at a given time. In believing that there are
few, if any, moral absolutes, however, relativists demonstrate
themselves to be quintessential absolutists as they believe absolutely
that almost nothing, if anything, can be absolutely immoral in and of
its nature. Most matters of morality simply "depend" upon circumstances
and the "consciences" of the individuals involved.
Yet it is, of course, that relativists are quite
dogmatic in their propagandizing in behalf of their relativism,
condemning, sometimes with caustic smarminess, anyone who dares to
oppose their "received" beliefs. It is then that relativists become
openly absolutist as they dismiss opponents with bitter invectives,
condemning them by making advertence to one shopworn slogan
("judgmental," "intolerant," "bigoted," "racist," "homophobic,"
"patriarchal," "haters," "narrow-minded") after another in order to
shame them into submission to the currently prevailing beliefs of the
secular magisterium that is composed of self-appointed "popes" and
"popessas." The Southern Poverty Law Center is simply part of this secular magisterium, if you will. So is the Anti-Defamation League of B'Nai Brith. There are so many such self-appointed guardians of what is considered to be "acceptable" thought and speech. There is so little time to list them all.
Suffice it for now to say that the "hate card" is an old one even in this country.
Many professional race-baiters in the black community have for decades now claimed that anyone who criticizes a civil official who is black is motivated by "racism." This is a charge that is leveled yet today by defenders of the statist policies of President Barack Hussein Obama.
The current Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, said when she was the First Lady of the United States of America in the 1990s that the members of the "vast right wing conspiracy" criticized her because they were afraid of a "strong" woman.
Those of us who support the inviolability of innocent preborn life and thus oppose unjust laws that make the execution of little babies in their mother's wombs legally "permissible" are said to "hate" women. Much of this rhetoric has been used recently to defend the Obama administration's mandate that all employers, including religious institutions, must provide health-insurance coverage for contraception and sterilization and related "family planning services."
As has been noted on this site, I have seen intolerance of a Catholic's attempts, despite his own sins and failings, to defend the truths of the Faith in his classroom on an "up close and personal" basis, which is why I am unemployable in my own chosen field as a college professor of political science.
To give just one example of many I encountered over the course of thirty years, feminists at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa, wanted my signed
contract canceled after I had been hired in June of 1992, furious after
they had discovered that I had run for lieutenant governor of New York
six years before. I was a veritable "non-person" in the eyes of many of
my fellow faculty members during the 1992-1993 year that I taught at
Morningside College. Liberals are not exactly known to be very tolerant
except of their own. They tend to give you the complete freedom to agree
Perhaps the Southern Poverty Law Center Ought to "Out" Saint Peter and Popes Eugene VI, Saint Pius X and Pius XII as "Haters"
Professional Christophobes such as those associated with the Southern Poverty Law Center, however, have a particular zeal to "out" those they discover to hold to the immutable truths of the Catholic Faith, those who have have not subscribed to the apostasy of the counterfeit church of conciliarism concerning the "validity" of the Mosaic Covenant and that it was necessary to "discover in a new way" the relationship of what the lords of conciliarism believe is the Catholic Church with the "faith of Israel," especially in light of the crimes committed against Jews by agents of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich. If Catholics who reject the conciliar apostasies, which have been reviewed many times on this site (see Saint Peter and Anti-Peter, Saint Vincent Ferrer and Anti-Saint Vincent Ferrers, To Be Loved by the Jews and Trying To Understand Apostasy), are "haters," then so is the first pope, Saint Peter the Apostle, and so are, among so many others, Popes Eugene IV, Saint Pius X and Pius XII:
But Peter standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and spoke to them: Ye men of Judea, and all you that dwell in Jerusalem, be this known to you, and with your ears receive my words. For these are not drunk, as you suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day:
But this is that which was spoken of by the prophet Joel: And it shall come to pass, in the last days, (saith the Lord,) I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. And upon my servants indeed, and upon my handmaids will I pour out in those days of my spirit, and they shall prophesy. And I will shew wonders in the heaven above, and signs on the earth beneath: blood and fire, and vapour of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and manifest day of the Lord come.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. Ye men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you, by miracles, and wonders, and signs, which God did by him, in the midst of you, as you also know:This same being delivered up, by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, you by the hands of wicked men have crucified and slain. Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the sorrows of hell, as it was impossible that he should be holden by it. For David saith concerning him: I foresaw the Lord before my face: because he is at my right hand, that I may not be moved.
For this my heart hath been glad, and any tongue hath rejoiced: moreover my flesh also shall rest in hope. Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, nor suffer thy Holy One to see corruption. Thou hast made known to me the ways of life: thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. Ye men, brethren, let me freely speak to you of the patriarch David; that he died, and was buried; and his sepulchre is with us to this present day. Whereas therefore he was a prophet, and knew that God hath sworn to him with an oath, that of the fruit of his loins one should sit upon his throne.
Foreseeing this, he spoke of the resurrection of Christ. For neither was he left in hell, neither did his flesh see corruption. This Jesus hath God raised again, whereof all we are witnesses. Being exalted therefore by the right hand of God, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath poured forth this which you see and hear. For David ascended not into heaven; but he himself said: The Lord said to my Lord, sit thou on my right hand, Until I make thy enemies thy footstool.
Therefore let all the house of Israel know most certainly, that God hath made both Lord and Christ, this same Jesus, whom you have crucified. Now when they had heard these things, they had compunction in their heart, and said to Peter, and to the rest of the apostles: What shall we do, men and brethren? But Peter said to them: Do penance, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins: and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is to you, and to your children, and to all that are far off, whomsoever the Lord our God shall call. And with very many other words did he testify and exhort them, saying: Save yourselves from this perverse generation. (Acts 2: 14-40)
It [the Holy Catholic Church] firmly believes, professes, and proclaims that those not living within the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews and heretics and schismatics cannot become participants in eternal life, but will depart "into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels" [Matt. 25:41], unless before the end of life the same have been added to the flock; and that the unity of the ecclesiastical body is so strong that only to those remaining in it are the sacraments of the Church of benefit for salvation, and do fastings, almsgiving, and other functions of piety and exercises of Christian service produce eternal reward, and that no one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has remained in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church. (Pope Eugene IV, Cantate Domino, February 4, 1441.)
POPE: We are unable to favor this movement [of
Zionism]. We cannot prevent the Jews from going to Jerusalem—but we
could never sanction it. The ground of Jerusalem, if it were not always
sacred, has been sanctified by the life of Jesus Christ. As the head of
the Church I cannot answer you otherwise. The Jews have not recognized
our Lord, therefore we cannot recognize the Jewish people.
HERZL: [The conflict
between Rome and Jerusalem, represented by the one and the other of us,
was once again under way. At the outset I tried to be conciliatory. I
said my little piece. . . . It didn’t greatly impress him. Jerusalem was
not to be placed in Jewish hands.] And its present status, Holy Father?
POPE: I know, it is disagreeable to see the Turks in
possession of our Holy Places. We simply have to put up with it. But to
sanction the Jewish wish to occupy these sites, that we cannot do.
HERZL: [I said that we based our movement solely on the
sufferings of the Jews, and wished to put aside all religious issues].
POPE: Yes, but we, but I as the head of the Catholic Church,
cannot do this. One of two things will likely happen. Either the Jews
will retain their ancient faith and continue to await the Messiah whom
we believe has already appeared—in which case they are denying the
divinity of Jesus and we cannot assist them. Or else they will go there
with no religion whatever, and then we can have nothing at all to do
with them. The Jewish faith was the foundation of our own, but it has
been superceded by the teachings of Christ, and we cannot admit that it
still enjoys any validity. The Jews who should have been the first to
acknowledge Jesus Christ have not done so to this day.
HERZL: [It was on the tip of my tongue to remark, “It happens
in every family: no one believes in his own relative.” But, instead, I
said:] Terror and persecution were not precisely the best means for
converting the Jews. [His reply had an element of grandeur in its
POPE: Our Lord came without power. He came in peace. He
persecuted no one. He was abandoned even by his apostles. It was only
later that he attained stature. It took three centuries for the Church
to evolve. The Jews therefore had plenty of time in which to accept his
divinity without duress or pressure. But they chose not to do so, and
they have not done it yet.
HERZL: But, Holy
Father, the Jews are in a terrible plight. I do not know if Your
Holiness is aware of the full extent of their tragedy. We need a land
for these harried people.
POPE: Must it be Jerusalem?
HERZL: We are not asking for Jerusalem, but for Palestine—for only the secular land.
POPE: We cannot be in favor of it.
[Editor Lowenthal interjects here] Here unrelenting
replacement theology is plainly upheld as the norm of the Roman Catholic
Church. Further, this confession, along with the whole tone of the Pope
in his meeting with Herzl, indicates the perpetuation of a doctrinal
emphasis that has resulted in centuries of degrading behavior toward the
Jews. However, this response has the “grandeur” of total avoidance of
that which Herzl had intimated, namely that the abusive reputation of
Roman Catholicism toward the Jews was unlikely to foster conversion.
Further, if, “It took three centuries for the Church to evolve,” it was
that very same period of time that it took for the Church to consolidate
and launch its thrust of anti-Semitism through the following centuries.
HERZL: Does Your Holiness know the situation of the Jews?
POPE: Yes, from my days in Mantua, where there are Jews. I
have always been in friendly relations with Jews. Only the other evening
two Jews were here to see me. There are other bonds than those of
religion: social intercourse, for example, and philanthropy. Such bonds
we do not refuse to maintain with the Jews. Indeed we also pray for
them, that their spirit see the light. This very day the Church is
celebrating the feast of an unbeliever who became converted in a
miraculous manner—on the road to Damascus. And so if you come to
Palestine and settle your people there, we will be ready with churches
and priests to baptize all of you. (Marvin Lowenthal, The Diaries of Theodore Herzl, recounting his visit with Pope Saint Pius X on January 25, 1904, the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle. This conversation has been posted, whether in full or in part, over forty times since it first appear on September 25, 2007, in A Pope and a Zionist.)
28.That He completed His work on the gibbet of
the Cross is the unanimous teaching of the holy Fathers who assert that
the Church was born from the side of our Savior on the Cross like a new
Eve, mother of all the living. 
"And it is now," says the great St. Ambrose, speaking of the pierced
side of Christ, "that it is built, it is now that it is formed, it is
now that is .... molded, it is now that it is created . . . Now it is
that arises a spiritual house, a holy priesthood."  One who reverently examines this venerable teaching will easily discover the reasons on which it is based.
29.And first of all, by the death of
our Redeemer, the New Testament took the place of the Old Law which had
been abolished; then the Law of Christ together with its mysteries,
enactments, institutions, and sacred rites was ratified for the whole
world in the blood of Jesus Christ. For, while our Divine
Savior was preaching in a restricted area -- He was not sent but to the
sheep that were lost of the house of Israel  -the Law and the Gospel were together in force;  but on the gibbet of his death Jesus made void the Law with its decrees,  fastened the handwriting of the Old Testament to the Cross,  establishing the New Testament in His blood shed for the whole human race. 
"To such an extent, then," says St. Leo the Great, speaking of the
Cross of our Lord, "was there effected a transfer from the Law to the
Gospel, from the Synagogue to the Church, from many sacrifices to one
Victim, that, as our Lord expired, that mystical veil which shut off the
innermost part of the temple and its sacred secret was rent violently
from top to bottom." 
30. On the Cross then the Old Law died, soon to be buried and to be a bearer of death,  in order to give way to the New Testament of which Christ had chosen the Apostles as qualified ministers; 
and although He had been constituted the Head of the whole human family
in the womb of the Blessed Virgin, it is by the power of the Cross that
our Savior exercises fully the office itself of Head in His Church.
"For it was through His triumph on the Cross," according to the teaching
of the Angelic and Common Doctor, "that He won power and dominion over
the gentiles"; 
by that same victory He increased the immense treasure of graces,
which, as He reigns in glory in heaven, He lavishes continually on His
mortal members it was by His blood shed on the Cross that God's anger
was averted and that all the heavenly gifts, especially the spiritual
graces of the New and Eternal Testament, could then flow from the
fountains of our Savior for the salvation of men, of the faithful above
all; it was on the tree of the Cross, finally, that He entered into
possession of His Church, that is, of all the members of His Mystical
Body; for they would not have been united to this Mystical Body. (Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis, June 29, 1943.)
the Holy Ghost permit the Catholic Church to be "wrong" on the matter of
the invalidity of the Old Covenant prior to the "Second" Vatican
Council? Can God change His Mind? Can God contradict Himself after the
better part of over two millennia? Anyone who asserts this is an
apostate of the first order.
It is my hope that those who have yet to understand that conciliarism is a false religion may begin to question how an absolute command given by Our Lord--one that has been fulfilled at the point of martyrdom by countless Catholics in the last two millennia---can be "lost" and that is is wrong to seek the conversion of anyone, including the Jews of the Talmud. We must not be intimidated by sloganeering. We must seek the conversion of all, starting with ourselves on a daily basis by cooperating with the graces won for us on the wood of the Holy Cross by the shedding of the Most Precious Blood of the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, and we must oppose those who seek to silence us about the Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Most Blessed Mother and who seek to promote under cover of law the very evils that loaded down the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus with such pain and that thrust through seven swords of sorrow through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Immaculate Queen.
As we know, of course, it is not simply the example of the saints that the Jews of the Talmud reject and disparage. It is the very Person of Our Lord Himself, true God and true Man, Who is hated, something that cross across very clearly in a source of real hate, the Talmud itself.
Accommodating Talmudism Is Of The Essence of Concilairism
As alluded to earlier in this article, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI has explained to us in his own words that there had to be a "change" in the way what he thinks is the Catholic Church must "view" the "faith of Israel:"
Thirdly, linked more generally to this was the problem of religious
tolerance - a question that required a new definition of the
relationship between the Christian faith and the world religions. In
particular, before the recent crimes of the Nazi regime and, in general,
with a retrospective look at a long and difficult history, it was
necessary to evaluate and define in a new way the relationship between
the Church and the faith of Israel. (Christmas greetings to the Members of the Roman Curia and Prelature, December 22, 2005.)
Ratzinger/Benedict is an Hegelian, believing that truth contains within itself the seeds of its own internal contradiction. The clash between the original thesis and its antithesis results in the new thesis (synthesis), which is why he is talks almost incessantly about arriving at a "critical synthesis" or a "synthesis of faith," terms that are alien to the Catholic Faith. Past dogmatic pronouncements might have served some useful purpose at a given point in history, you see, but the demands of "modern man" must produce a new synthesis to "respond" to differing circumstances. Such a view suits the goals of Judeo-Masonry quite well. Any and all efforts to thwart the efforts of Catholics to seek to restore Christendom and to seek the conversion of others, including the Jews of the Talmud, to the true Faith, up to and including the infiltration of her ranks with all manner of unbelievers (Masons, adherents of the Talmud, Communists), must be employed to help "move along" the "synthesis of faith" that will result in the flushing of the Catholic past down the memory hole.
This is why all talk of the infiltration of the Catholic Church is treated with contempt by those who work for the Southern Poverty Law Center. Infiltration by homosexuals? Collaboration with the sworn enemies of Our Lord (Jews, Masons, Communists)? Such talk is utter nonsense, obviously. The "Synagogue of Satan," of all things? Where did that come from? Well, how about The Syllabus of Errors, the document issued by Pope Pius IX that is so hated by Benedict himself, who made it a point to state that the Gaudium et Spes was a "counter-syllabus," if you will. Once again, there can be no referencing those truths that have been replaced by new "syntheses" as the "needs" of "modern man" are met.
Here is what Pope Pius IX wrote at the end of The Syllabus of Errors,
December 8, 1864, including the condemnation of the belief, held by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and
the conciliarists, that the "Roman pontiff can, and ought to, reconcile
himself, and come to terms with progress, liberalism and modern
80. The Roman Pontiff can, and ought to, reconcile
himself, and come to terms with progress, liberalism and modern
civilization.- -Allocution "Jamdudum cernimus," March 18, 1861.
The faith teaches us and human reason demonstrates
that a double order of things exists, and that we must therefore
distinguish between the two earthly powers, the one of natural origin
which provides for secular affairs and the tranquillity of human
society, the other of supernatural origin, which presides over the City
of God, that is to say the Church of Christ, which has been divinely
instituted for the sake of souls and of eternal salvation.... The duties
of this twofold power are most wisely ordered in such a way that to God
is given what is God's (Matt. 22:21), and because of God to Caesar what
is Caesar's, who is great because he is smaller than heaven. Certainly
the Church has never disobeyed this divine command, the Church which
always and everywhere instructs the faithful to show the respect which
they should inviolably have for the supreme authority and its secular
. . . Venerable Brethren,
you see clearly enough how sad and full of perils is the condition of
Catholics in the regions of Europe which We have mentioned. Nor are
things any better or circumstances calmer in America, where some regions
are so hostile to Catholics that their governments seem to deny by
their actions the Catholic faith they claim to profess. In fact, there,
for the last few years, a ferocious war on the Church, its institutions
and the rights of the Apostolic See has been raging.... Venerable
Brothers, it is surprising that in our time such a great war is being
waged against the Catholic Church. But anyone who knows the nature,
desires and intentions of the sects, whether they be called masonic or
bear another name, and compares them with the nature the systems and the
vastness of the obstacles by which the Church has been assailed almost
everywhere, cannot doubt that the present misfortune must mainly be
imputed to the frauds and machinations of these sects. It is from
them that the synagogue of Satan, which gathers its troops against the
Church of Christ, takes its strength. In the past Our predecessors,
vigilant even from the beginning in Israel, had already denounced them
to the kings and the nations, and had condemned them time and time
again, and even We have not failed in this duty. If those who would have
been able to avert such a deadly scourge had only had more faith in the
supreme Pastors of the Church! But this scourge, winding through
sinuous caverns, . . . deceiving many with astute frauds, finally has
arrived at the point where it comes forth impetuously from its hiding
places and triumphs as a powerful master. Since the throng of its
propagandists has grown enormously, these wicked groups think that they
have already become masters of the world and that they have almost
reached their pre-established goal. Having sometimes obtained what they
desired, and that is power, in several countries, they boldly turn the
help of powers and authorities which they have secured to trying to
submit the Church of God to the most cruel servitude, to undermine the
foundations on which it rests, to contaminate its splendid qualities;
and, moreover, to strike it with frequent blows, to shake it, to
overthrow it, and, if possible, to make it disappear completely from the
earth. Things being thus, Venerable Brothers, make every effort to
defend the faithful which are entrusted to you against the insidious
contagion of these sects and to save from perdition those who
unfortunately have inscribed themselves in such sects. Make known and
attack those who, whether suffering from, or planning, deception, are
not afraid to affirm that these shady congregations aim only at the
profit of society, at progress and mutual benefit. Explain to them often
and impress deeply on their souls the Papal constitutions on this
subject and teach, them that the masonic associations are anathematized
by them not only in Europe but also in America and wherever they may be
in the whole world. (Pope Pius IX, The Syllabus of Errors, December 8, 1864.)
The Southern Poverty Law Center is really not the problem here, ladies and gentlemen. What do we expect people who are committed to the Talmud, a document that preaches actual hate for Christians, are going to do? Give us a reward for opposing their support of blasphemies committed against Our Lord and Our Lady in motion pictures and plays and books, to say nothing of our opposing their support for baby-killing, both chemical and surgical, under cover of law? No, the attorneys for the Southern Poverty Law Center are doing what comes all too naturally to those whose souls are steeped in Original Sin and are thus in the grip of the devil himself, who hates Our Lord and the true Church He founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is simply doing the bidding of the ethos of conciliarism that the scions of the Talmud worked so hard to effect through the centuries. Ratzinger/Benedict and his "bishops" agree with the Southern Poverty Law Center and their war on "radical traditional Catholics." which is why the forthcoming agreement between the conciliarists and the Society of Saint Pius X will finish off any and all criticism of the false "pontiff's" obsequious visits to synagogues that was made by the Society's very founder himself, the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre:
And most recently, the Pope has been in the synagogue of the Jews in Rome. How can the Pope pray with the enemies of Jesus Christ? These
Jews know and say and believe that they are the successors of the Jews
that killed Jesus Christ, and they continue to fight against Jesus
Christ everywhere in the world. At the end of the Pope's visit, the Jews
sang a "hymn" that included the line "I believe with all my heart in
the coming of the Messiah," meaning that they refuse Jesus as the
Messiah, and the Pope had given permission for this denial of Christ be
sung in his presence, and he listened, head bowed! And
the Holy See announces that in the near future that he will visit Taize
to pray with the Protestants, and he himself said in public at St. Paul
Outside the Walls that later this year he will hold a ceremony gathering
all of the religions of the world together to pray for peace at Assisi
in Italy, on the occasion of the Feast of Peace proclaimed by the United
Nations due to take place on October 24.
“Now all these facts are public, you have seen them in the newspapers and the media. What are we to think? What
is the reaction of our Catholic Faith? That is what matters. It is not
our personal feelings, a sort of impression or admission of some kind.
It is a question of knowing what our Faith tells us, faced with these
facts. Let me quote a few words - not my words - from
Canon Naz’s Dictionary of Canon Law, a wholly official and approved
commentary on what has been the Catholic Church’s body of law for
nineteen centuries. On the subject of sharing in the worship of
non-Catholics (after all, this is what we now see Pope and bishops
doing), the Church says, in Canon 1258-1: ‘It is absolutely forbidden
for Catholics to attend or take any active part in the worship of
non-Catholics in any way whatsoever.’ On this Canon the quasi-official
Naz Commentary says, and I quote, ‘A Catholic takes active part when he
joins in heterodox; i.e., non-Catholic worship with the intention of
honouring God by this means in the way non-Catholics do. It is forbidden
to pray, to sing or to play the organ in a heretical or schismatic
temple, in association with the people worshipping there, even if the
words of the hymn or the song or the prayer are orthodox.’ The
reason for this prohibition is that any participation in non-Catholic
worship implies profession of a false religion and hence denial of the
Catholic Faith. By such participation Catholics are presumed to
be adhering to the beliefs of the non- Catholics, and that is why Canon
2316 declares them ‘suspect of heresy, and if they persevere, they are
to be treated as being in reality heretics.’
“Now these recent acts of the Pope and bishops, with Protestants, animists and Jews, are
they not an active participation in non-Catholic worship as explained
by Canon Naz on Canon 1258-1? In which case, I cannot see how it is
possible to say that the Pope is not suspect of heresy, and if he
continues, he is a heretic, a public heretic. That is the teaching of
I don’t know if the time has come to say that the Pope is a heretic; I
don’t know if it is the time to say that. You know, for some time many
people, the sedevacantists, have been saying ‘there is no more Pope,’
but I think that for me it was not yet the time to say that, because it
was not sure, it was not evident, it was very difficult to say that the
Pope is a heretic, the Pope is apostate. But I recognize that slowly,
very slowly, by the deeds and acts of the Pope himself we begin to be
very anxious. I am not inventing this situation; I do not want it. I
would gladly give my life to bring it to an end, but this is the
situation we face, unfolding before our eyes like a film in the cinema. I
don’t think it has ever happened in the history of the Church, the man
seated in the chair of Peter partaking in the worship of false gods.
conclusion must we draw in a few months if we are confronted by these
repeated acts of partaking in false worship? I don’t know. I wonder. But
I think the Pope can do nothing worse than call together a meeting of
all religions, when we know there is only one true religion and all
other religions belong to the devil. So perhaps after this famous
meeting of Assisi, perhaps we must say that the Pope is a heretic, is
apostate. Now I don’t wish yet to say it formally and solemnly,
but it seems at first sight that it is impossible for a Pope to be
publicly and formally heretical. Our Lord has promised to be with him,
to keep his faith, to keep him in the Faith - how can he at the same
time be a public heretic and virtually apostatise? So it is possible we
may be obliged to believe this Pope is not Pope. (The Angelus, July 1986, transcripts of talks given by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre on March 30 and April 18, 1986.)
Once again, you see, the true sedevacantists are the conciliarists, who believe that very little of what happened prior to 1958 binds them, especially those things that point out who the enemies of the Catholic Faith have been from the beginning and how it is an act of love to oppose them while we seek their conversion to the maternal bosom of Holy Mother Church. Pope Pius IX charged the bishops of his day to "defend the faithful" against "the insidious contagion of these sects and to save from perdition those who unfortunately have inscribed themselves in such sects." Ratzinger/Benedict believes that the faithful in the conciliar structures need to be "protected" against the "radical traditionalists" who take Pope Pius IX's words seriously! Conciliarism and the ethos of Judeo-Masonry are thus one and the same.
No true pope of the Catholic Church has ever sought
to appease the ancient enemies of the Catholic Church who deny the
Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
conciliar "popes" have done this consistently over the course of the
past fifty-three and one-half years now.
Ratzinger/Benedict has personally bowed to the public and private
pressures brought upon him by adherents of the Talmud to "revise" the
Good Friday Prayer of the Jews that is used in the modernized version of
the Immemorial Mass of Tradition that was promulgated by Angelo
Roncalli/John XXIII in 1961 and he was quick to respond to criticism
directed at him by Talmudic rabbis for the "lifting" of the
"excommunication" that had been imposed on Bishop Richard Williamson of
the Society of Saint Pius X even though the latter had put into question
the exact nature and extent of the crimes of the Third Reich (see Nothing New Under the Conciliar Sun).
The currently reigning "false pontiff" has also given
audiences to rabbis who have been concerned about the "beatification"
process of Pope Pius XII. This is without precedent in the history of
the Catholic Church. It is, however, but a continuation of the not-so-blessed Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, who set the stage for Ratzinger/Benedict's
regular visits to Talmudic synagogues, which are, of course, dens of the
The teaching of the Catholic Church is clear and
consistent when it comes to religious intercourse with adherents of the
Talmud and their synagogues:
The spirit of Christ, which dictated the Holy
Scriptures, and the spirit which animates and guides the Church of
Christ, and teaches her all truth, is the same; and therefore in all ages her conduct on this point has been uniformly the same as what the Holy Scripture teaches. She
has constantly forbidden her children to hold any communication, in
religious matters, with those who are separated from her communion; and
this she has sometimes done under the most severe penalties. In the
apostolical canons, which are of very ancient standing, and for the most
part handed down from the apostolical age, it is thus decreed: "If any
bishop, or priest, or deacon, shall join in prayers with heretics, let
him be suspended from Communion". (Can. 44)
Also, "If any clergyman or laic shall go
into the synagogue of the Jews, or the meetings of heretics, to join in
prayer with them, let him be deposed, and deprived of communion". (Can. 63) (Bishop George Hay, (The Laws of God Forbidding All Communication in Religion With Those of a False Religion.)
The conciliar "popes" have committed acts
that have placed themselves outside of the pale of the Catholic Church
or that some of these hideous actions have been undertaken by a desire
to be accepted abd respected, if not loved, by the adherents of the Talmud of today who make war upon the
Catholic Faith just as much now as the Jews of Abraham made war upon Our
Lord in the days leading up to His Passion and Death and as they made
war upon the Apostles thereafter until the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in
70 A.D. The conciliar "popes" have even "knighted" pro-abortion, pro-perversity Talmudic rabbis. Others have received "papal" medals at the behest of various conciliar "bishops," especially in the United States of America.
This is apostasy, and to oppose it is not to hate the Jews or even to hate the apostates of the conciliar church. It is simply to love God that we oppose everything that is contrary to Him and His Sacred Deposit Faith. As Catholics, we must be willing to lay down our very lives in defense of the truth, understanding that the singularly most cruel thing that we can do to a non-Catholic is to refuse to invite him into the true Church before he dies. Someone we invite might refuse the invitation. He might take years to convert. He might never do so. That, however, does not lessen our obligation to try to do so, especially by watering whatever efforts we make by our prayers and sacrifices in his behalf. We love no one authentically if we do not will what God wills for them: their salvation as a believing, faithful member of the Catholic Church.
Exploding the Myth of Anti-Semitism Once Again
Writing in The Struggle of the Jewish Nation against the Messias, the great Irish apostle of the Social Reign of Christ the King, Father Denis Fahey, wrote that Catholics must never be intimidated by the slogan of anti-Semitism. Consider once again these telling words:
Yet all the propaganda about that display of Anti-Semitism should not have made Catholics forget the existence of age-long Jewish Naturalism or Anti-Supernaturalism. Forgetfulness of the disorder of Jewish Naturalistic opposition to Christ the King is keeping Catholics blind to the danger that is arising from the clever extension of the term “Anti-Semitism,” with all its war-connotation in the minds of the unthinking, to include any form of opposition to the Jewish Nation’s naturalistic aims. For the leaders of the Jewish Nation, to stand for the rights of Christ the King is logically to be “anti-Semitic.”
These words of wisdom apply to the cultural and political legal warfare that has been waged in this country by Judeo-Masonry. Indeed, as Father Fahey quotes from Pope Pius XI:
“Comprehending and merciful charity towards the erring,” he writes, “and even towards the contemptuous, does not mean and can not mean that you renounce in any way the proclaiming of, the insisting on, and the courageous defence of the truth and its free and unhindered application to the realities about you. The first and obvious duty the priest owes to the world about him is service to the truth, the whole truth, the unmasking and refutation of error in whatever form or disguise it conceals itself.” (Pope Pius XII, Mit Brennender Sorge, March 14, 1937)
Anti-Semitism--or simple fidelity to this mission that the God-Man, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, gave to the Eleven before He Ascended to the Father's right hand in glory on Pentecost Sunday?
And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, unto the mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And seeing them they adored: but some doubted. And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world. (Mt. 28: 16-20)
Was Father Maria-Alphonse Ratisbonne, who was converted to the Faith after Our Lady appeared to him in the Church of San Andrea delle Fratte, in Rome Italy, on January 20, 1942, as she appeared on the Miraculous Medal, and his brother, Father Theodore Ratisbonne, "anti-Semitic" to seek the conversion of their fellow Jews of the Talmud? They "targeted" Jews for conversion, something that Father Raniero Cantalamessa, the "preacher" to the "papal" household of both John Paul II and Benedict XVI said in 2005 must not be done:
If Jews one day come (as Paul hopes) to a more positive judgment of Jesus, this must occur through an inner process, as the end of a search of their own (something that in part is occurring). We Christians cannot be the ones who seek to convert them. We have lost the right to do so by the way in which this was done in the past. First the wounds must be healed through dialogue and reconciliation. (Zenit, September 30, 2005.)
Conciliarism is not Catholicism. Indeed, conciliarism is one of the greatest forms of "Anti-Semitism" imaginable as its lords are content to leave adherents of the Talmud in states of Original Sin until their deaths. This is an act of utter betrayal of the founding mission of the Catholic Church and thus of a mockery of the Our Lord's Redemptive Act on the wood of the Holy Cross.
We Must Pray For Our Persecutors Always, Always
Hatred of Our Lord, obviously, leads to hatred of His followers. This is why the Jews of the Talmud, who are not, for the most part, the blood Jews of the stock of Abraham (see Father Louis Campbell's "And I Saw No Temple Therein"), must war against those who adhere to the perennial truths of the Faith and why they must serve as fervent apologists and propagandists for the false religion of conciliarism. Part Two of Father Pranaitis's book discusses this hatred for the followers of the Divine Redeemer. An excerpt is provided in the appendix below.
Adherents of the Talmud thus consider it their duty to persecute believing Catholics. Although they condemn those who adhere to theories of racial superiority, which, as will be seen presently, have been condemned repeatedly by the Catholic Church, the adherents of the Talmud believe their own own superiority, which explains their harsh, cruel treatment of the Palestinians and the Lebanese since the Zionist-Masonic state of Israel was established in 1948. In this instance, you see, is is the conciliarists who are acting as reverse Pontius Pilates, turning over faithful Catholics to the Jew of the Talmud to be excoriated as practitioners of hate when it is, in all truth, the Talmud that preaches actual, real hatred for Our Lord, Our Lady and all members of the Catholic Church.
What is our response to such hatred? Forgiveness and prayer. Our Lord Himself told us that we must pray for our persecutors and to do good to them, the ultimate expression of which is to seek their conversion to the true Church. This is what He said in the Sermon on the Mount:
You have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thy enemy. But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust.
For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? do not even the publicans this? And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more? do not also the heathens this? Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect. (Mt. 5: 43-48)
Yes, we must pray for our persecutors. We bear them no malice as we seek to expose their hatred and to win their souls for Christ the King through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our loving Queen.
Saint Alphonsus Liguori wrote this about the early martyrs of the Church, many of whom were turned over to Roman authorities by Jews of the Sanhedrin and by the Jews of the Dispersal:
But to return to the martyrs. The number of Christians who had received the crown of martyrdom, previous to the accession of Constantine, was almost incredible. Many authors calculate the number of those who had laid down their lives for the faith to have been nearly eleven million! So that if this number were equally distributed in the course of one year, thirty thousand would be allotted to each day.
Oh, the beautiful harvest of holy martyrs that paradise has reaped since the preaching of the Gospel! But, O God! what will be, on the day of general judgment, the confusion of the tyrants and of all the persecutors of the faith, at the sight of the martyrs once so despised and so maltreated by them, when these celestial heroes shall appear in glory, extolling the greatness of God, and armed with the sword of divine justice to avenge themselves for all the injuries and cruelties exercised against them, as was foretold by David: The high praises of God in their mouths, and two-edged swords in their hands to execute vengeance upon the nations; to bind their kings in fetters, and their nobles in manacles of iron. Then shall the martyrs judge the Neros, the Domitians, and other persecutors, and shall condemn them; yea, as we read in the Gospel of St. Matthew, even to the exterior darkness, where there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
But it will be for us a subject of more profitable meditation to reflect upon another scene which the great day of general and irrevocable doom will present--the despair of so many Christians who, having died in mortal sin, will behold with unavailing anguish the triumph of so many martyrs, who, rather than lose God, suffered themselves to be despoiled of all things, and underwent the most horrid torments that hell could suggest or tyrants inflict. while they, rather than yield a point of honor or forego a momentary gratification, despised the suggestions of divine grace, and lost their souls forever! (Saint Alphonsus de Liguori, The Glories of the Martyrs.)
We must pray for the grace of perseverance for ourselves as we pray for the conversion of the Jews of the Talmud who calumniate us for refusing to worship at the false altar of conciliarism by our adherence to the perennial truths that the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity made Man in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate womb entrusted exclusively to the Catholic Church He founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.
The example of the martyrs of the early Church should inspire us in these times of calumny and persecution, these times of apostasy and betrayal.
Saint Alphonsus de Liguori composed this beautiful prayer in honor of those martyrs:
O ye blessed Princes of the heavenly kingdom! ye who sacrificed to the Almighty God the honors, the riches, and possessions of this life, and have received in return the unfading glory and never-ending joys of heaven! ye who are secure in the everlasting possession of he brilliant crown of glory which your sufferings have obtained!--look with compassionate regards upon our wretched state in this valley of tears, where we groan in the uncertainty of what may be our eternal destiny. And from that divine Saviour, for whom you suffered so many torments, and who now repays you with so unspeakable glory, obtain for us that we may love him with all our heart, and receive in return the grace of perfect resignation under the trials of this life, fortitude under the temptations of the enemy, and perseverance to the end. May your powerful intercession obtain for us that we may one day in your blessed company sing the praises of the Eternal, and even as you now do, face to face, enjoy the beatitude of his vision!
We must remember that there is nothing we can suffer in this life (injustice, calumny, death by martyrdom) that is the equal of what one of our least venial sins caused Our Lord to suffer on the wood of the Holy Cross during His Passion and Death. We should rejoice when we are persecuted and misunderstood. These words of Blessed Louis Grignion de Montfort should comfort and inspire us:
Fear not, little flock, for it pleases God your Father to give you the kingdom. Fear not though you have all to dread. You are but a feeble flock, a flock so small that a child can count it. And behold nations, worldlings, misers, the voluptuous and libertines gathered by the thousands to fight you with their mockery, their calumnies, their scorn and their violences.
You are little, they are great. You are poor, they are rich. You have no credit, they are backed up by everything. You are weak, they have authority in hand. But one more blow, do not fear voluntarily. Listen to Jesus Christ: He tells you, it is I who am your Good Shepherd and I know you for My sheep. Be not surprised if the world hate you. Know that it hated me first. If you were of the world, the world would cherish you as things which belonged to it, but because you are not of the world, you must suffer its hatred, its calumnies, its injuries, its scorn and its outrages.
I am your protector and your defense, little Company, the Eternal Father tells you. I have engraved you in My heart and written in My hands in order to cherish and defend you because you have placed your confidence in Me and not in men, in My Providence and not in money. (Blessed Louis de Montfort, The Secret of Mary)
Today is Low Sunday, the day that we read about the unbelief of Saint Thomas the Apostle, who was
not present on Easter Sunday when the Apostles were gathered together
as Our Lord appeared to them together for the first time:
when it was late that same day, the first of the week, and the doors
were shut, where the disciples were gathered together, for fear of the
Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them: Peace be to
you. (John 20: 19.)
Thomas was not present, protesting that he would not believe the
account of his brother bishops until he had placed his fingers in the
nail prints in Our Lord's hands and feet and had placed his hand in Our
Lord's wounded side:
Now Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them
when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen
the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in his hands the
print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and
put my hand into his side, I will not believe. (John 20: 24-25.)
Our Lord did appear to Saint Thomas and the other ten Apostles one week later, on Low Sunday. Saint Thomas saw and believed:
And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with
them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and
said: Peace be to you. Then he saith to Thomas: Put in thy finger
hither, and see my hands; and bring hither thy hand, and put it into my
side; and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered, and said to
him: My Lord, and my God. Jesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen
me, Thomas, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and
have believed. (John 20: 26-29.)
Thomas believed because he saw Our Lord after His Bodily Resurrection
from the dead. We believe although we have not seen Our Lord Bodily
risen from the dead with our own eyes. We believe because of the
testimony given to us by the first Pope, Saint Peter, and the other
Apostles, including the "doubting" Saint Thomas, each of whom was
blessed with the personal charism of infallibility, a charism
transmitted only to the true, legitimate Successors of Saint Peter
thereafter, as they proclaimed with boldness and with a true love for
the eternal welfare of souls the Gospel of their Divine Redeemer, Our
Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. They preached the Gospel to Jew
and Gentile, Saint Thomas himself going to India to do so. Fear of
offending no man restrained them from being faithful to the mission that
had been given to them by the Divine Redeemer by He Ascended to the
Father's right hand in glory on Ascension Thursday. Fear of offending no
man restrained the true popes of the Catholic Church, such as Saint
Pius X with Theodore Herzl, from fulfilling that mission in their own
We must fear to offend no man as we lift high the Cross of the Divine
Redeemer, making sure to do so in a spirit of gratitude for the gift of
the true Faith and to bear with those whom God's Providence has placed
in our paths with kindliness and patience, praying to God the Holy Ghost
to give us the prudence to know what to say and how and when to say it
as we seek the eternal good of others. Our proclamation of the true
Faith might be as simple as handing out a Green Scapular to someone we
meet (as my wife does every day, receiving warm expressions of gratitude
from those to whom she has given the Green Scapular when and if we see
that person again), praying "Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now
and at the hour our death" for each person to whom we give it.
We might have the opportunity on other occasions to
give a fallen away Catholic a blessed Rosary and an instruction booklet
as to how to pray it in the event that they had never learned (or have
forgotten over the years) to do so. There are any number of ways that we
can bear witness to the Faith, including by means of our performing the
Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, undergirding each of our efforts
as the consecrated slaves of Jesus through Mary by a life of fervent
prayer, especially before the Blessed Sacrament, and to the Mother of
God, especially by means of her Most Holy Rosary, and by our regular and
sincere use of the Sacrament of Penance. And each of our homes should
be enthroned to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Sorrowful and
Immaculate Heart of Mary, thereby helping us to establish and to
maintain a Christendom in miniature as our families attempt to avoid the
allure of the world and to read more about the lives of the saints so
that we can attempt to imitate their virtues more readily and more
perfectly on a daily basis.
Saint Thomas disbelieved the news of the Resurrection
on Easter Sunday. He believed after he had seen Our Lord on Low Sunday a
week later. The gifts and fruits of God the Holy Ghost empowered him to
become a fervent defender of the Faith to the point of shedding his
blood in India even after he had placed a post or a stick in the ground
at the entrance to a church he built in Madras (now Chennai), India, and
promised the faithful that the nearby waters would never rise above
that stick. The floodwaters from the tsunami of over seven years ago now stopped right at that stick. We ask Saint Thomas the
Apostle, therefore, to make sure that our own Faith is never swept away
by the floodwaters of conciliarism, that it always remains strong with
the help of Our Lady's loving prayers and of his own Apostolic
intercession from Heaven.
Faith is indeed a gift. It can be lost. We must
nurture the Faith every day of our lives, holding fast to the perennial
teaching of the Catholic Church as we cling to true bishops and true
priests in the catacombs who make no concessions at all to conciliarism
or to the nonexistent legitimacy of its false shepherds. The counterfeit
religion of conciliarism dispenses with the necessity of seeking with
urgency the conversion of all men to the true Church. The true religion
has never done so it can never do so.
Asking Our Lady to keep our Faith strong
in the midst of apostasy and betrayal, may we pray as many Rosaries each
day as our state-in-life permits, thereby helping to plant the seeds
for the conversion of more and more people, including Jews, to the true
Faith, and making it more possible, please God and by the intercession
of His Most Blessed Mother, where there will be a world in which
everyone will exclaim with joy:
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.
Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.
Saint John the Evangelist, pray for us.
Saint Michael the Archangel, pray for us.
Saint Gabriel the Archangel, pray for us.
Saint Raphael the Archangel, pray for us.
Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.
Saints Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar, pray for us.

From Father I. B. Praintis's The Talmud Unmasked
(Talmud1 and Talmud Unmasked Part Two).
Publisher-Editor's note: Here are
some excerpts to illustrate that the very people who want the world to
believe that it is a "hate crime" to seek the conversion of Talmudic
Jews and to oppose their efforts to eradicate the Holy Name of Our Lord
and Saviour Jesus Chris and the authority of His true Church from the
minds and heats of men and their nations are actually the real purveyors
of a hatred that is from Hell itself:
Many passages in the Talmudic books treat of the
birth, life, death, and teachings of Jesus Christ. He is not always
referred to by the same name, however, but is diversely called "That
Man," "A Certain One," "The Carpenter's Son," "The One Who Was Hanged,"
Article I. - Concerning the Names of Jesus Christ
1. The real name of Christ in Hebrew is Jeschua Hanotsri - Jesus the
Nazarene. He is called Notsri from the city of Nazareth in which he was
brought up. Thus in the Talmud Christians also are called Notsrim -
Since the word Jeschua means "Savior," the name Jesus rarely occurs
in the Jewish books. It is almost always abbreviated to Jeschu, which is
maliciously taken as if it were composed of the initial letters of the
three words Immach Schemo Vezikro - "May his name and memory be blotted
2. In the Talmud Christ is called Otho Isch - "That
man," i.e. the one who is known to all. In the tract Abhodah Zarah, 6a,
we read: "He is called a Christian who follows the false teachings of
that man, who taught them to celebrate the feast on the first day of the
Sabbath, that is, to worship on the first day after the Sabbath"
3. Elsewhere he is simply called Peloni - "A
Certain One." In Chagigah, 4b, we read: "Mary...the mother of a certain
one, of whom it is related in Schabbath..." (104b)
That this Mary is none other than the mother of Jesus will be shown
4. Out of contempt, Jesus is also called Naggar bar
naggar - "the carpenter son of a carpenter", also Ben charsch etaim -
"the son of a wood worker."
5. He is also called Talui - "The one who was
hanged." Rabbi Samuel, the son of Mair, in the Hilch. Akum of
Maimonides, refers to the fact that it was forbidden to take part in the
Christian feats of Christmas and Easter because they were celebrated on
account of him who was hanged. And Rabbi Aben Ezra, in a commentary on
Genes. also calls him Talui, whose image the Emperor Constantine
reproduced on his banner. "...in the days of Constantine, who made a
change of religion and placed the figure of the one who was hanged on
Article II. - The Life of Christ
The Talmud teaches that Jesus Christ was illegitimate and was
conceived during menstruation; that he had the soul of Esau; that he was
a fool, a conjurer, a seducer; that he was crucified, buried in hell
and set up as an idol ever since by his followers.
1. ILLEGITIMATE AND CONCEIVED DURING MENSTRUATION
The following is narrated in the Tract Kallah, 1b:
"Once when the Elders were seated at the Gate, two young men passed
by, one of whom had his covered, the other with his head bare. Rabbi
Eliezer remarked that the one in his bare head was illegitimate, a
mamzer. Rabbi Jehoschua said that he was conceived during menstruation,
ben niddah. Rabbi Akibah, however, said that he was both. Whereupon the
others asked Rabbi Akibah why he dared to contradict his colleagues. He
answered that he could prove what he said. He went therefore to the
boy's mother whom he saw sitting in the market place selling vegetables
and said to her: "My daughter, if you will answer truthfully what I am
going to ask you, I promise that you will be saved in the next life."
She demanded that he would swear to keep his promise, and Rabbi Akibah
did so - but with his lips only, for in his heart he invalidated his
oath. Then he said: "Tell me, what kind of son is this of yours"? To
which she replied: "The day I was married I was having menstruation, and
because of this my husband left me. But an evil spirit came and slept
with me and from this intercourse my son was born to me." Thus it was
proved that this young man was not only illegitimate but also conceived
during the menstruation of his mother. And when his questioners heard
this they declared: "Great indeed was Rabbi Akibah when he corrected his
Elders"! And they exclaimed: "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel who
revealed his secret to Rabbi Akibah the son of Joseph"!
That the Jews understand this story to refer to Jesus and his
mother, Mary, is clearly demonstrated in their book Toldath Jeschu -
"The Generations of Jesus" - where the birth of our Savior is narrated
in almost the same words.
Another story of this kind is narrated in Sanhedrin, 67a:
"Of all who are guilty of death by the Law, he alone is caught by a
ruse. How is it done? They light a candle in an inner room and place
witnesses in an adjoining room outside where they can see him and hear
his voice, but where they cannot be seen by him. Then the one whom he
tried to seduce says to him "Please repeat here privately what you told
me before." If the seducer repeats what he said, the others ask him "But
how shall we leave our God who is in heaven and serve idols?" If the
seducer repents, then all is well.But if he says "This is our duty and
it is right for us to do so," then the witnesses outside, who have heard
him, bring him before the judge and stone him to death. This is what
they did to the son of Stadi in Lud, and they hanged him on the eve of
the Passover. Forthis son of Stada was the son of Pandira. For Rabbi
Chasda tells us that Pandira was the husband of Stada, his mother, and
he lived during the time Paphus the son of Jehuda. But his mother was
stada, Mary of Magdala (a ladies' hairdresser) who, as it is said in
Pumbadita, deserted her husband."
The meaning of this is that his Mary was called Stada, that is, a
prostitute, because, according to what was taught at Pumbadita, she left
her husband and committed adultery. This is also recorded in the
Jerusalem Talmud and by Maimonides.
That the mention here is of Mary, the mother of Jesus, is verified in the Tract Chagigah, 4b:
"When Rabbi Bibhai was visited once by the Death Angel (the devil),
the latter said to his assistant: "Go and bring to me Mary the
hairdresser" (that is, kill her). He went and brought Mary the
children's hairdresser - in place of the other Mary."
A marginal note explains this passage as follows:
"This story of Mary the Ladies' hairdresser happened under the
Second Temple. She was the mother of Peloni, "that man," as he is called
in the tract Schabbath."
In Schabbath the passage referred to says:
"Rabbi Elizer said to the Elders: "Did not the son Stada practice
Egyptian magic by cutting it into his flesh?" They replied: "He was a
fool, and we do not pay attention to what fools do. The son of Stada,
Pandra's son, etc." as above in Sanhedrin, 67a.
This magic of the son of Stada is explained as follows in the book Beth Jacobh, fol. 127 a:
"The Magi, before they left Egypt, took special care not to put
their magic in writing lest other peoples might come to learn it But he
devised a new way by which he inscribed it on his skin, or made cuts in
his skin and inserted it there and which, when the wounds healed up, did
not show what they meant."
"There is little doubt who this Ben Stada was, or who the Jews
understood him to be. Although the Rabbis in their additions to the
Talmud try to hide their malice and say that it is not Jesus Christ,
their deceit is plainly evident, and many things prove that they wrote
and understood all these things about him. In the first place, they also
call him the son of Pandira. Jesus the Nazarene is thus called in other
passages of the Talmud where express mention is made of Jesus the son
of Pandira. St. John Damascene also, in his Genealogy of Christ,
mentions Panthera and the Son of Panthera.
"Secondly, this Stada is said to be Mary, and this Mary the mother
of Peloni "that certain one," by which without doubt Jesus is meant. For
in this way they were accustomed to cover up his name because they were
afraid to mention it. If we had copies of the original manuscripts they
would certainly prove this. And this also was the name of the mother of
Jesus the Nazarene.
"Thirdly, he is called the Seducer of the People. The Gospels
testify that Jesus was called this by the Jews, and their writings to
this day are proof that they still call him by this name.
"Fourthly, he is called "the one who was hanged," which clearly
refers to the crucifixion of Christ, especially since a reference to the
time "on the eve of the Passover" is added, which coincides with the
time of the crucifixion of Jesus. In Sanhedrin they wrote as follows:
"On the eve of the Passover they hanged Jesus"
"Fifthly, as to what the Jerusalem Talmud says about the two
disciples of the Elders who were sent as witnesses to spy on him, and
who were afterwards brought forward as witnesses against him: This
refers to the two "false witnesses" of whom the Evangelists Matthew and
Luke make mention.
"Sixthly, concerning what they say about the son of Stada that he
practiced Egyptian magical arts by cutting into his flesh: the same
accusation is made against Christ in their hostile book Toldoth Jeschu.
"Lastly, the time corresponds. For it is said that this son of Stada
lived in the days of Paphus the son of Jehuda, who was a contemporary
of Rabbi Akibah. Akibah, however, lived at the time of the Ascension of
Christ, and for some time after. Mary is also said to have lived under
the Second Temple. All this clearly proves that they secretly and
blasphemously understand this son of Stada to be Jesus Christ the son of
"Other circumstances may seem to contradict this. But that is
nothing new in Jewish writings and is done on purpose so that Christians
may not easily detect their trickery."
2. Furthermore, "In the secret books, which are not
permitted to fall easily into the hands of Christians, they say that
the soul of Esau came into Christ, that he was therefore evil and that
he was Esau himself."
3. By some he is called a FOOL and INSANE
In Schabbath, 104b:
"They, [the Elders] said to him [Eliezer]: "He was a fool, and no one pays attention to fools."
4. A CONJURER AND MAGICIAN
In the infamous book Toldoth Jeschu, our Savior is blasphemed as follows:
"And Jesus said: Did not Isaiah and David, my ancestors, prophesy
about me? The Lord said to me, thou art my son, today I have begotten
thee, etc. Likewise in another place: The Lord said to my Lord, sit thou
at my right hand. Now I ascend to my father who is in heaven and will
sit at his right hand, which you will see with your own eyes. But you,
Judas, will never reach that high. Then Jesus pronounced the great name
of God (IHVH) and continued to do so until a wind came and took him up
between earth and sky. Judas also pronounced the name of God and he
likewise was taken up by the wind. In this way they both floated around
in the air to the amazement of the onlookers. Then Judas, again
pronouncing the Divine Nane, took hold of Jesus and pushed him down to
earth. But Jesus tried to do the same to Judas and thus they fought
together. And when Judas saw he could not win out over the works of
Jesushe pissed on Jesus, and both thus being unclean they fell to earth;
nor could they use the Divine name again until they had washed
Whether those who believe such devilish lies deserve greater hatred or pity, I cannot say.
In another place in the same book it is related that in the house of
the Sanctuary there was a stone which the Patriarch Jacob anointed with
oil. On this stone were carved the tetragrammatic letters of the Name
(IHVH), and if anyone could learn from them he could destroy the world.
They therefore decreed that no one must learn them, and they placed two
dogs upon two iron columns before the Sanctuary so that if anyone should
learn them the dogs would bark at him coming out and he would forget
the letters through fear. Then it is related: "Jesus came and entered,
learned the letters and wrote them down on parchment. Then he cut into
the flesh of his thigh and inserted them there, and having pronounced
the name, the wound healed."
In the Tract Sanhedrin (103a) the words of Psalm XCI, 10: "No plague
shall come near thy dwelling," are explained as follows:
"That thou mayest never have a son or a disciple who will salt his
food so much that he destroys his taste in public, like Jesus the
To salt one's food too much or to destroy one's taste, is
proverbially said of one who corrupts his morals or dishonors himself,
or who falls into heresy and idolatry and openly preaches it to others.
In the same book Sanhedrin (107b) we read:
"Mar said: Jesus seduced, corrupted and destroyed Israel."
Finally as punishment for his crimes and impiety, he suffered an
ignominious death by being hanged on a cross on the eve of the Passover
(as we have seen above).
8. BURIED IN HELL
The book Zohar, III, (282), tells us that Jesus died like a beast
and was buried in that "dirt heap...where they throw the dead bodies of
dogs and asses, and where the sons of Esau [the Christians] and of
Ismael [the Turks], also Jesus and Mahommed, uncircumcized and unclean
like dead dogs, are buried."
9. WORSHIPPED AS GOD AFTER HIS DEATH BY HIS FOLLOWERS
George El. Edzard, in his book Avoda Sara, quotes the following
words of the commentator on the Hilkoth Akum (V,3) of Maimonides:
"In many passages of the Talmud mention is made of Jesus the
Nazarene and of his disciples, and that the Gentiles believe that there
is no other God besides him. In the book Chizzuk Emunah, part I, ch. 36,
we read: "The Christians build up an argument from this [Zachary XII,
10] and say: Behold how thew Prophet testified that in future ages the
Jews would would lament and weep because they crucified and killed the
Messiah who was sent to them; and to prove that he meant Jesus the
Nazarene, possessing both the divine and human nature, they quote the
words: And they looked upon him whom they transfixed and they wept over
him as a mother over her first born child.""
Maimonides attempts to prove how much Christians err in worshipping Jesus in his book Hilkoth Melakhim (IX, 4):
"If all the things he did had prospered, if he had rebuilt the
Sanctuary in its place, and had gathered together the dispersed tribes
of Israel, then he would certainly be the Messiah....But if so far hew
has not done so and if he was killed, then it is clear he was not the
Messiah whom the Law tells us to expect. He was similar to all the good
and upright rulers of the House of David who died, and whom the Holy and
Blessed Lord raised up for no other reason but to prove to many, as it
is said (in Dan. XI, 35): And some of them who understand shall fall, to
try and to purge them and to make them white, even till the end of
time, because the appointed time is not yet. Daniel also prophesised
about Jesus the Nazarene who thought he was the Christ, and who was put
to death by the judgment of the Senate: (Dan. V.14): ...and the robbers
of thy people shall exalt
themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fail. What could
be plainer? For all the Prophets said that the Christ would set Israel
free, would bring it salvation, restore its dispersed peoples and
confirm their laws. But he was the cause of the destruction of Israel
and caused the rest of them to be dispersed and humiliated, so that the
Law was changed and the greater part of the world was seduced to worship
another God. Truly no one can understand the designs of the Creator,
nor are his ways our ways. For all that has been built up by Jesus the
Nazarene, and by the Turks who came after him, tend only to prepare the
way for the coming of Christ the King, and to prepare the whole world
equally for the service of the Lord, as it is said: For then I shall
give a clean moth to all peoples that all may call upon the name of the
Lord, and bow down in unison before him. How is this being accomplished?
Already the whole world is filled with the praise of Christ, the Law
and the Commandments, and his praises have spread to far distant lands
and to peoples whose hearts and bodies are uncircumcized. These discuss
with one another about the Law that was destroyed - some saying that the
commandments were once true, but have ceased to exist; others that
there is a great mystery about it, that the Messiah-King has come and
that their doctrine has revealed it. But when the Christ truly comes and
is successful, and is raised up and exalted, then everything will be
changed and these things will be shown to be false and vain."
10. AN IDOL
In the Tract Abhodah Zarah, (21a Toseph), we read:
"It is of importance to inquire the reasons why men nowadays even
sell and rent their houses to Gentiles. Some say this is legal because
it is said in Tosephta: No one shall rent his house to a gentile either
here [in the land of Israel] or elsewhere because it is known that he
will bring an idol into it. It is nevertheless allowed to rent them
stables, barns and lodging houses, even though it is known that they
will bring idols into them. The reason is because a distinction can be
made between a place into which an idol will be carried in order to
leave it there permanently, and a place where it will not be left
permanently, in which case it is allowed. And since the gentiles, among
whom we now live, do not bring their idol into their homes to leave it
there permanently, but only for a time - while someone is dead in the
house or when someone is dying, nor do they even perform any religious
rites there - it is therefore permitted to sell and rent them houses."
Rabbi Ascher, in his Commentary on Abhodah Zarah (83d) speaks not
less clearly on this matter: "Today it is permitted to rent houses to
Gentiles because they bring their idol into them only for a time, when
somebody is sick." And in the same place he says "Today they have a
practice of incensing their idol.""
All this, and much more like it, proves beyond a doubt that when the
Rabbis speak of the idols of the Gentiles among whom they lived at that
time, when no idols were worshipped, they clearly meant the Christian
"idol," namely, the image of Christ on the crucifix and the Holy
Here is a second excerpt:
CHRISTIANS MUST BE EXTERMINATED
The followers of "that man," whose name is taken by the Jews to
mean "May his name and memory be blotted out," are not otherwise to be
regarded than as people whom it would be good to get rid of. They are
called Romans and tyrants who hold captive the children of Israel, and
by their destruction the Jews would be freed from this Fourth Captivity.
Every Jew is therefore bound to do all he can to destroy that impious
kingdom of the Edomites (Rome) which rules the whole world. Since,
however, it is not always and everywhere possible to effect this
extermination of Christians, the Talmud orders that they should be
attacked at least indirectly, namely: by injuring them in every possible
way, and by thus lessening their power, help towards their ultimate
destruction. Wherever it is possible a Jew should kill Christians, and
do so without mercy.
Article I. - Harm must be done to Christians
A Jew is commanded to harm Christians wherever he can, both
indirectly by not helping them in any way, and also directly by wrecking
their plans and projects; neither must he save a Christian who is in
danger of death.
I. Good must not be done to Christians
In Zohar (1, 25b) it says:
"Those who do good to the Akum . . . will not rise from the dead."
At times it is permitted to do good to Christians, but only in
order to help Israel, namely, for the sake of peace and to hide hatred
of them. Maimonides in Hilkhoth Akum (X, 6) says:
"Needy Gentiles may be helped as well as needy Jews, for the sake of
In Iore Dea (148, 12 Hagah) it says:
"Therefore if you enter a town and find them celebrating a feast, you
may pretend to rejoice with them in order to hide your hatred. Those,
however, who care about the salvation of their souls should keep away
from such celebrations. You should make it known that it is a hateful
thing to rejoice with them, if you can do so without incurring enmity."
1. IT IS NOT PERMITTED TO PRAISE A CHRISTIAN
In Abhodah Zarah (20, a, Toseph) it says:
"Do not say anything in praise of them, lest it be said: How good that Goi is!"
In this way they explain the words of Deuteronomy (VII, 2) ... and
thou shalt show no mercy unto them [Goim], as cited in the Gemarah.
Rabbi S. Iarchi explains this Bible passage as follows:
"Do not pay them any compliments; for it is forbidden to say: how good
that Goi is."
In Iore Dea (151, 14) it says:
"No one is allowed to praise them or to say how good an Akum is. How
much less to praise what they do or to recount anything about them which
would redound to their glory. If, however, while praising them you
intend to give glory to God, namely, because he has created comely
creatures, then it is allowed to do so."
2. A JEW NOT ALLOWED TO MENTION THE THINGS WHICH CHRISTIANS USE FOR THEIR IDOLATROUS WORSHIP
In Hilkhoth Akum (V, 12) it says:
"It is also forbidden to make mention of the Akum; for it is written (Exodus XXIII, 13):...and make no mention of other gods."
3. THEIR IDOLS MUST BE SPOKEN OF WITH CONTEMPT
In Iore Dea (146, 15) it says:
"Their idols must be destroyed, or called by contemptuous names."
Ibidem, (147, 5):
"It is permitted to deride idols, and it is forbidden to say to a Goi: May your God help you, or I hope you will succeed."
Rabbi Bechai, explaining the text of Deuteronomy about hating
"The Scripture taught us to hate idols and to call them by ignominious
names. Thus, if the name of a church is Bethgalia - "house of
magnificence," it should be called Bethkaria - an insignificant house, a
pigs' house, a latrine. For this word, karia, denotes a low-down, slum
In numerous places ignominious names are given by the Jews to
Christian things. It will not be out of place to list a few of these
names which they give to things and persons which are held holy and dear
by Christians, as follows:
JESUS is ignominiously called Jeschu - which means, May his name
and memory be blotted out. His proper name in Hebrew is Jeschua, which
MARY, THE MOTHER OF JESUS, is called Charia - dung, excrement (German Dreck). In Hebrew her proper name is Miriam.
CHRISTIAN SAINTS, the word for which in Hebrew Kedoschim, are
called Kededchim (cinaedos) - feminine men (Fairies). Women saints are
called Kedeschoth, whores.
SUNDAY is called the day of calamity.
FEAST OF CHRISTMAS is called Nital, denoting extermination.
EASTER is not called by the proper name Pesach (Passover), but Ketsach, meaning a cutting down; or Kesach, a Gallows.
A CHRISTIAN CHURCH is not called Beth Hattefillah, House of
Prayer, but Beth Hattiflah, a House of Vanity, a House of Evil.
THE GOSPEL BOOKS are called Aavon Gilaion, Books of Iniquity.
CHRISTIAN SACRIFICES are called Dung Offerings. In the Jerusalem
Talmud (fol. 13b) the following occurs:
"He who sees them mezabbelim (excrementing - sacrificing) before their
idol, let him say (Exod. XXII, 20): He that sacrificeth unto an idol
shall be utterly destroyed."
Rabbi Iarchi (referring to Num. XXV, 3) teaches that the Gentiles actually honor their God by excrementing before him.
A CHRISTIAN GIRL who works for Jews on their sabbath is called a Schaw-wesschicksel, Sabbath Dirt.
4. A JEW IS NOT ALLOWED TO GIVE GIFTS TO CHRISTIANS
In Hilkohoth Akum (X, 5) it says:
"It is forbidden to give gifts to the Goim. But it is permitted to give
them to a convert who lives among the Jews; for it is said: To the
traveller who stops in your cities, give it to him to eat, or sell it to
a Gentile, that is sell it, not give it."
In Iore Dea (151, 11) it says:
"It is forbidden to give free gifts to the Akum with whom a Jew may not treat familiarly."
The Talmud, however, allows a Jew to give gifts to Gentiles who
are known to himand from whom he has hope of getting something in
5. A JEW IS FORBIDDEN TO SELL HIS FARM TO CHRISTIANS
In Iore Dea (334, 43) it says:
"In 24 cases a Jew must be repudiated, namely ...8. Anyone who sells his
farm to the Akum must be sent into exile - unless he undertakes to make
up for all the harm that follows as a consequence of having the Akum
live near the Jews."
6. IT IS FORBIDDEN TO TEACH A TRADE TO CHRISTIANS
In Iore Dea (154, 2) it says:
"It is not permitted to teach any trade to the Akum."
II. Harm must be done to the Work of Christians
Since the Goim minister to Jews like beasts of burden, belong to a Jew together with his life and all his faculties:
"The life of a Goi and all his physical powers belong to a Jew." (A. Rohl. Die Polem. p.20)
It is an axiom of the Rabbis that a Jew may take anything that
belongs to Christians for any reason whatsoever, even by fraud; nor can
such be called robbery since it is merely taking what belongs to him.
In Babha Bathra (54 b) it says:
"All things pertaining to the Goim are like a desert; the first
person to come along and take them can claim them for his own."
1. CHRISTIANS MUST NOT BE TOLD IF THEY PAY TOO MUCH TO A JEW
In Choschen Hammischpat (183, 7) it says:
"If you send a messenger to collect money from an Akum and the Akum pays
too much, the messenger may keep the difference. But if the messenger
does not know about it, then you may keep it all yourself."
2. LOST PROPERTY OF CHRISTIANS MUST NOT BE RETURNED TO THEM
In Choschen Hamm. (266, 1) it says:
"A Jew may keep anything he finds which belongs to the Akum, for it is
written: Return to thy brethren what is lost (Deuter. XXII, 3). For he
who returns lost property [to Christians] sins against the Law by
increasing the power of the transgressors of the Law. It is
praiseworthy, however, to return lost property if it is done to honor
the name of God, namely, if by so doing Christians will praise the Jews
and look upon them as honorable people."
3. CHRISTIANS MAY BE DEFRAUDED
In Babha Kama (113b) it says:
"It is permitted to deceive a Goi."
And in Choschen Hamm. (156, 5 Hagah) it says:
"If a Jew is doing good business with an Akum it is not allowed to other
Jews, in certain places, to come and do business with the same Akum. In
other places, however, it is different, where another Jews is allowed
to go to the same Akum, lead him on, do business with him and to deceive
him and take his money. For the wealth of the Akum is to be regarded as
common property and belongs to the first who can get it. There are
some, however, who say that this should not be done."
In Choschen Hamm. (183, 7 Hagah) it says:
"If a Jew is doing business with an Akum and a fellow Israelite comes
along and defrauds the Akum, either by false measure, weight or number,
he must divide his profit with his fellow Israelite, since both had a
part in the deal, and also in order to help him along."
4. A JEW MAY PRETEND HE IS A CHRISTIAN TO DECEIVE CHRISTIANS
In Iore Dea (157, 2 Hagah) it says:
"If a Jew is able to deceive them [idolaters] by pretending he is a worshipper of the stars, he may do so."
5. A JEW IS ALLOWED TO PRACTICE USURY ON CHRISTIANS
In Abhodah Zarah (54a) it says: "It is allowed to take usury from Apostates who fall into idolatry."
And in Iore Dea (159, 1) it says:
"It is permitted, according to the Torah, to lend money to an Akum with
usury. Some of the Elders, however, deny this except in a case of life
and death. Nowadays it is permitted for any reason."
III. Christians may be harmed in Legal Matters
1. A JEW MAY LIE AND PERJURE HIMSELF TO CONDEMN A CHRISTIAN
In Babha Kama (113a) it says:
"Our teaching is as follows: When a Jew and a Goi come into court,
absolve the Jew, if you can, according to the laws of Israel. If the Goi
wins, tell him that is what our laws require. If however, the Jew can
be absolved according to the gentile law, absolve him and say it is due
to our laws. If this cannot be done proceed callously against the Goim,
as Rabbi Ischmael advises. Rabbi Akibha, however, holds that you cannot
act fraudulently lest you profane the Name of God, and have a Jew
commited for perjury."
A marginal note, however, explains this qualification of Rabbi Akibha as follows:
"The name of God is not profaned when it is not known by the Goi that the Jew has lied."
And further on, the Babha Kama (113b) says:
"The name of God is not profaned when, for example, a Jew lies to a Goi
by saying: 'I gave something to your father, but he is dead; you must
return it to me,' as long as the Goi does not know that you are lying."
2. A JEW MAY PERJURE HIMSELF WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE
In Kallah (1b, p.18) it says:
"She (the mother of the mamzer) said to him, 'Swear to me.' And Rabbi
Akibha swore with his lips, but in his heart he invalidated his oath."
A similar text is found in Schabbuoth Hagahoth of Rabbi Ascher
"If the magistrate of a city compels Jews to swear that they will not
escape from the city nor take anything out of it, they may swear falsely
by saying to themselves that they will not escape today, nor take
anything out of the city today only."
IV. Christians must be harmed in Things Necessary for Life
Jews must spare no means in fighting the tyrants who hold them
in this Fourth Captivity in order to set themselves free. They must
fight Christians with astuteness and do nothing to prevent evil from
happening to them: their sick must not be cared for, Christian women in
childbirth must not be helped, nor must they be saved when in danger of
1. A JEW MUST ALWAYS TRY TO DECEIVE CHRISTIANS
In Zohar (I, 160a) it says:
"Rabbi Jehuda said to him [Rabbi Cezkia]: 'He is to be praised who is
able to free himself from the enemies of Israel, and the just are much
to be praised who get free from them and fight against them. 'Rabbi
Chezkia asked, 'How must we fight against them?' Rabbi Jehuda said, 'By
wise counsel thou shalt war against them' (Proverbs, ch. 24, 6). By what
kind of war? The kind of war that every son of man must fight against
his enemies, which Jacob used against Esau - by deceit and trickery
whenever possible. They must be fought against without ceasing, until
proper order be restored. Thus it is with satisfaction that I say we
should free ourselves from them and rule over them."
2. A SICK CHRISTIAN MUST NOT BE AIDED
In Iore Dea (158, 1) it says:
"The Akum are not to be cured, even for money, unless it would incur their enmity."
3. A CHRISTIAN WOMAN IN CHILDBIRTH MUST NOT BE HELPED
In Orach Chaiim (330, 2) it says:
"No help is to be given to an Akun woman in labor on the sabbath, even in a small way, for the Sabbath must not be violated."
4. A CHRISTIAN IN DANGER OF DEATH MUST NOT BE HELPED
In Choschen Hamm. (425, 5) it says:
"If you see a heretic, who does not believe in the Torah, fall into a
well in which there is a ladder, hurry at once and take it away and say
to him 'I have to go and take my son down from a roof; I will bring the
ladder back to you at once' or something else. The Kuthaei, however, who
are not our enemies, who take care of the sheep of the Israelites, are
not to be killed directly, but they must not be saved from death."
And in Iore Dea (158, 1) it says:
"The Akum who are not enemies of ours must not be killed directly,
nevertheless they must not be saved from danger of death. For example,
if you see one of them fall into the sea, do not pull him out unless he
promises to give you money."
Maimonides, in Hilkhoth Akum (X, 1) says:
"Do not have pity for them, for it is said (Deuter. VII, 2): Show no
mercy unto them. Therefore, if you see an Akum in difficulty or
drowning, do not go to his help. And if he is in danger of death, do not
save him from death. But it is not right to kill him by your own hand
by shoving them into a well or in some other way, since they are not at
war with us."
Article II. - Christians are to be Killed
Lastly, the Talmud commands that Christians are to be killed without mercy. In the Abhodah Zarah (26b) it says:
"Heretics, traitors and apostates are to be thrown into a well and not rescued."
And in Choschen Hammischpat (388, 10) it says:
"A spy is to be killed, even in our days, wherever he is found. He may
be killed even before he confesses. And even if he admits that he only
intended to do harm to somebody, and if the harm which he intended is
not very great, it is sufficient to have him condemned to death. He must
be warned, however, not to confess to this. But if he impudently says
'No, I will confess it!' then he must be killed, and the sooner the
better. If there is no time to warn him, it is not necessary to do so.
There are some who say that a traitor is to be put to death only when it
is impossible to get rid of him by mutilating him, that is, by cutting
out his tongue or his eyes, but if this can be done he must not be
killed, since he is not any worse than others who persecute us."
And in Choschen Hamm. again (388, 15) it says:
"If it can be proved that someone has betrayed Israel three times, or
has given the money of Israelites to the Akum, a way must be found after
prudent consideration to wipe him off the face of the earth."
I. Renegades to be Killed
Even a Christian who is found studying the Law of Israel merits death. In Sanhedrin (59a) it says:
"Rabbi Jochanan says: A Goi who pries into the Law is guilty to death."
II. Baptized Jews are to be Put to Death
In Hilkhoth Akum (X, 2) it says:
"These things [supra] are intended for idolaters. But Israelites also,
who lapse from their religion and become epicureans, are to be killed,
and we must persecute them to the end. For they afflict Israel and turn
the people from God."
And in Iore Dea (158, 2
Hagah) it says:
"Renegades who turn to the pleasures of the Akum, and who become
contaminated with them by worshipping stars and planets as they do, are
to be killed."
Likewise in Choschen Hamm. (425, 5) it says:
"Jews who become epicureans, who take to the worship of stars and
planets and sin maliciously; also those who eat the flesh of wounded
animals, or who dress in vain clothes, deserve the name of epicureans;
likewise those who deny the Torah and the Prophets of Israel - the law
is that all those should be killed; and those who have the power of life
and death should have them killed; and if this cannot be done, they
should be led to their death by deceptive methods."
Rabbi Maimonides, in Hilkhoth Teschubhah (III, 8) gives the list of those who are considered as denying the Law:
"There are three classes of people who deny the Law of the Torah: (1)
Those who say that the Torah was not given by God, at least one verse or
one word of it, and who say that it was all the work of Moses; (2)
Those who reject the explanation of the Torah, namely, the Oral Law of
the Mischnah, and do not recognize the authority of the Doctors of the
Law, like the followers of Tsadok (Sadducees) and Baithos; (3) Those who
say that God changed the Law for another New Law, and that the Torah no
longer has any value, although they do not deny that it was given by
God, as the Christians and the Turks believe. All of these deny the Law
of the Torah."
III. Christians are to be Killed because They are Tyrants
In Zohar (I, 25a) it says:
"The People of the Earth are idolaters, and it has been written about
them: Let them be wiped off the face of the earth. Destroy the memory of
the Amalekites. They are with us still in this Fourth Captivity,
namely, the Princes [of Rome] . . . who are really Amalakites."
1. THESE PRINCES ARE TO BE KILLED FIRST
For if they are allowed to live, the hope of the liberation of
the Jews is in vain, and their prayers for release from this Fourth
Captivity are of no avail. In Zohar (I, 219B) it says:
"It is certain that our captivity will last until the princes of the
gentiles who worship idols are destroyed."
And again in Zohar (II, 19a) it says:
"Rabbi Jehuda said: Come and see how it is; how the princes have assumed
power over Israel and the Israelites make no outcry. But their
rejoicing is heard when the prince falls. It is written that: the King
of the Egyptians died and soon the children of Israel were released from
captivity; they cried out and their voice ascended to God."
