What would Saint Hyacinth, O.P., whose feast we celebrated yesterday, have thought of the blithe acceptance of places of false worship, including mosques, in one country after another in formerly Catholic Europe?
What would Saint Vincent Ferrer, O.P., have thought of the refusal of supposedly "Catholic" "popes" and "bishops" and "priests" stating that it is wrong to seek actively the conversion of adherents of the blasphemous Talmud and the equally blasphemous Koran?
What would Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap., who gave up his very life to seek to convert Calvinists, have thought of alleged "popes" non-Catholic clergymen as though they had a valid mission from God to serve and thus to save souls?
What would Pope Saint Pius V, O.P., have thought of alleged "successors" who have done such things as returning the Turkish flag captured by the combined Christian fleet during the Battle of Lepanto, October 7, 1571, to the Mohammedans and such things as kissing and/or venerating the Koran with esteem, no less praying in a Mohammedan prayer position in a mosque while turning in the direction of Mecca or of calling a mosque "sacred" and a "jewel" on the face of this earth?
What would Saint Josaphat, who gave up his life as a angry mob of the heretical and schismatic Orthodox in Vitsebsk (in what is now Belarus) rounded him and killed him with an axe and a bullet, have thought of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's praise of The Ravenna Document, October 13, 2007, that, in essence, calls for a "return" to the exercise of the "Petrine ministry" as the false "pope" falsely claims it to have been in the First Millennium? (See, for example, Anti-Apostles All.)
We have lived to the see when conciliar "popes" and "cardinals" and "bishops" and priests and presbyters have actually praised the proliferation of mosques in once Catholic Europe and here in the United States of America (as well as elsewhere in the world). As noted a few days ago in Intramurals Time for Americanists, apostates always want to "prove" how tolerant they are of various falsehoods and evils. This is why Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus entered the fray about the proposed "Cordoba House" to be built in the lower part of the Borough of Manhattan of the City of New York, New York, near where the twin towers of the World Trade Center stood before they were destroyed in the attacks that took place on September 11, 2001. Although he differs with the officials on the counterfeit church of conciliarism on baby-killing, something that does not seem to matter too very much to many of those in the conciliar Vatican, including Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI (see
A "Blessing" on a Murderer and His Work), Barack Hussein Obama has the same worldview as do the conciliarists: "love," "tolerance," "diversity," and "dialogue."
Obviously, slogans such as the ones just listed are simply that, slogans, designed to appeal to the emotions and to blunt all efforts at rational thought, clouding the minds of the masses with empty phrases that will not cause them to be diverted from their immersion in their various and sundry dog and pony shows. It just happens to be the case that the conciliar revolutionaries and the most of those who adhere to the lies of the false opposite of the naturalist "left" are very unloving, intolerant, bigoted, hateful, mean and cruel and most uninterested in any kind of "discussion" or "dialogue" with those who disagree in any way, shape or form with their "revealed truths." Popes Leo XIII and Saint Pius X either wrote immutable truth or they were wrong when they wrote the following concerning the fact that Catholics do not engage in the tolerate of false ideals:
Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups. Know them by their fruits and avoid them. Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions, and the craving to reconcile the maxims of the Gospel with those of the revolution. These men seek to reconcile Christ and Belial, the Church of God and the state without God. (Pope Leo XIII, Custodi di Quella Fede, December 8, 1892.)
The same applies to the notion of Fraternity which they found on the love of common interest or, beyond all philosophies and religions, on the mere notion of humanity, thus embracing with an equal love and tolerance all human beings and their miseries, whether these are intellectual, moral, or physical and temporal. But Catholic doctrine tells us that the primary duty of charity does not lie in the toleration of false ideas, however sincere they may be, nor in the theoretical or practical indifference towards the errors and vices in which we see our brethren plunged, but in the zeal for their intellectual and moral improvement as well as for their material well-being. Catholic doctrine further tells us that love for our neighbor flows from our love for God, Who is Father to all, and goal of the whole human family; and in Jesus Christ whose members we are, to the point that in doing good to others we are doing good to Jesus Christ Himself. Any other kind of love is sheer illusion, sterile and fleeting.
Indeed, we have the human experience of pagan and secular societies of ages past to show that concern for common interests or affinities of nature weigh very little against the passions and wild desires of the heart. No, Venerable Brethren, there is no genuine fraternity outside Christian charity. Through the love of God and His Son Jesus Christ Our Saviour, Christian charity embraces all men, comforts all, and leads all to the same faith and same heavenly happiness. . . .
Here we have, founded by Catholics, an inter-denominational association that is to work for the reform of civilization, an undertaking which is above all religious in character; for there is no true civilization without a moral civilization, and no true moral civilization without the true religion: it is a proven truth, a historical fact. The new Sillonists cannot pretend that they are merely working on “the ground of practical realities” where differences of belief do not matter. Their leader is so conscious of the influence which the convictions of the mind have upon the result of the action, that he invites them, whatever religion they may belong to, “to provide on the ground of practical realities, the proof of the excellence of their personal convictions.” And with good reason: indeed, all practical results reflect the nature of one’s religious convictions, just as the limbs of a man down to his finger-tips, owe their very shape to the principle of life that dwells in his body. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
All of this having been noted yet again for those of you with short memories (or for those of you who do not, for reasons known only to yourselves, check this site regularly--smile, pardners), it is nevertheless true that the Mohammedan "imam" who is proposing the Cordoba House,
Feisal Abdul-Rauf, has an agenda of his very own. He is a paid stooge of the United States Department of State under the control of United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to give speeches in Mohammedan nations about how "understanding" the administration of Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus is of the Muslim world. Feisal Abdul-Rauf is also trying to prove how "non-threatening" Mohammedanism is in a pluralistic nation such as the United States of America in an effort convince skeptical Americans that former Caesar Georgii Bushus Ignoramus and our current caesar ignoramus are correct in referring to Mohammedanism as a "religion of peace" when it originates from Hell and is founded upon the blood of the innocent, including countless numbers of believing Catholics in North Africa, the Iberian Peninsula, southern France, the Balkans, and Austria who refused the entreaties of the Mohammedan hordes to "convert or die."
Feisal Abdul-Rauf is, of course, playing a double-game as he portrays himself and the false cause of Mohammedanism as "moderate" in the United States of America while maintaining ties with those in the Muslim world who applauded the September 11, 2001, attacks upon the United States of America. Feisal Abdul-Rauf also sent signals to Mohammedans worldwide that he understood the motives of those who attacked the United States of America nearly nine years ago now, stating the following in a 60 Minutes interview shortly after those attacks, which have been used by the devil as the pretext to involve the United States of America in two needless wars that have destabilized one nation, Iraq, and worsened conditions in another, Afghanistan, while spilling the blood and costing the lives of our own military personnel and of countless numbers of innocents in Iraq and Afghanistan, thus engendering further ill-will against this country as we have mortgaged away the financial future of generations of Americans to come after us:
Bradley: And throughout the Muslim world, there is also strong opposition to America's foreign policy, particularly in the Middle East because of its support of Israel and economic sanctions against Iraq.
Faisal: It is a reaction against the US government politically, where we espouse principles of democracy and human rights, and where we ally ourselves with oppressive regimes in many of these countries.
Bradley: Are you in any way suggesting that we in the United States deserved what happened?
Faisal: I wouldn't say that the United States deserved what happened, but United States policies were an accessory to the crime that happened.
Bradley: You say that we're an accessory? How?
Faisal: Because we have been accessory to a lot of innocent lives dying in the world. In fact, in the most direct sense, Osama bin Laden is made in the USA. (Prominent American Muslims denounce terror.)
Feisal Abdul-Rauf certainly has an agenda to mainstream Mohammedanism here in the United States of America. He is very deft at making the specious "distinction" between "radical Islam" and the "teachings" of the Koran, especially when one considers that there is no central authority within this false religion to impose upon all Mohammedans a particular "doctrinal" interpretation of the meaning of that blasphemous document. He is also not unaware that placing his Cordoba House project near the site of what Americans call "Ground Zero" in lower Manhattan will inflame passions, which he believes can provide him with a platform to "explain" his "true" intentions and those of his "religion of peace."
I am not unconvinced, however, that this is all a big show that will result in Feisal Abdul-Rauf's eventually agreeing to the "compromise" proposed by the corrupt pro-abort, pro-perversity Catholic who is the Governor of the State of New York, David Paterson. Feisal Abdul-Rauf can then show how he is "sensitive" to the feelings of the survivors of those killed on September 11, 2001, while at the same having made his point about Mohammedans being "equal partners" in that wonderful home-grown American heresy of "religious liberty." This is what I really believe will be the outcome of all of this, one that will permit Feisal Abdul-Rauf and to give some political "breathing space" to his "principled" enabler and apologist, Barack Hussein Obama.
All of this having been said, however, Feisal Abdul-Rauf's 2001 60 Minutes interview with the late Ed Bradley contains a kernel of truth concerning how the uncritical, reflexive support of the murderous policies of the State of Israel, especially since the time of the administration of the late President Lyndon Baines Johnson, has engendered much resentment among the Christian and Mohammedan Palestinian Arabs, who have been the particular victims of Israeli aggression since they were dispossessed from their own homes and placed in concentration camps--excuse me, relocation centers--in 1948 and subjected to particularly brutal treatment since that time, and many millions upon millions of Mohammedans worldwide, including Osama bin Laden, who, like Saddam Hussein before him, had been an ally of the United States of America when it served the purposes of American policy-makers to enlist his help. Yes, the use of taxpayer subsidies and military shipments by one American presidential administration after another, both Democratic and Republican alike, to indemnify the murderous policies of the State of Israel did play a significant role in "creating" Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda. This is true.
What Feisal Abdul-Rauf does not admit is that Osama bin Laden is indeed quite a faithful son of the false "prophet" Mohammed. Feisal Abdul-Rauf does not understand that those, such as himself, who are steeped in the ravages of Original Sin and have no means for the Absolution of their Actual Sins as they are not members of the Catholic Church are inclined to respond with murderous acts of violence to "avenge" various injustices that are all too real, breathing a furious hatred against those who they deem to be responsible for those injustices as they are content with nothing other than their death and destruction. And for all of his seemingly "moderate" stance here publicly in the United States of America and when he serves as Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus's apologist in Mohammedan countries, he really does not believe that attacks upon innocent Israelis by the forces of the Mohammedan Palestinian organization named Hamas can or should be condemned.
Indeed, he has equivocated quite a bit on this matter, saying that it is difficult to determine who is a terrorist and who is not. Only one who believes that the innocent can and should die as a result of the crimes committed against "their" people can equivocate on such a fundamental issue. Those who are steeped in the ravages of Original Sin and who have no means for the Absolution of their Actual Sins as they are not members of the Catholic Church are thus inclined to hate and to kill others. This is why there will never be a "Middle East peace plan" as the two principal adversaries in that region, Jews and Mohammedans, are both steeped in the ravages of Original Sin and their own Actual Sins. The only "Middle East peace plan" is Heaven's peace plan, that is, Our Lady's Fatima peace plan, the consecration of a Russia to her Immaculate Heart by a true pope and all of the world's true bishops. Everyone in the Middle East, Jew and Mohammedan alike, must be converted to the true Faith before they can see each other as brothers in Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, forgiving each other as they are forgiven in the Baptismal font and then in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance, beginning to overcome the human distrust that has developed over the centuries, especially in the past sixty-two years. There is no other solution.
Feisal Abdul-Rauf attempted in 2004 to equate what he says in the United States of America is a "distortion of Islam" by saying that "Christians" bombed civilians in Dresden and Japan. No, Mr. Feisal Abdul-Rauf, the bombing of innocent population centers in in Dresden, Germany, and Hiroshima, Japan, was planned by Freemasons. American President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, then in his final days, and his fellow Freemason, Winston Spencer Churchill, the fusion Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, approved the unconscionable firebombing of Dresden on February 13 and 14, 1945. Freemason Harry S. Truman, who succeeded Roosevelt to the American presidency upon the latter's death on April 12, 1945, who approved the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, 1945, and of Nagasaki, Japan, on August 9, 1945. "Christians"? Think again, Mr. Feisal Abdul-Rauf. Think again.
Oh, yes, the government of the United States of America has perpetrated many crimes, both domestically and internationally, during its history, some of which will be reviewed in part two of this article, which will be written after another article, one dealing with conciliarism, is published in two days. An American citizen who loves his country and wills her good, which is her conversion to the true Faith, the Catholic Faith, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order, is not blind to the crimes of his nation as he seeks to make reparation for them as the consecrated slave of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. He does not use such crimes, however, as any kind of excuse to attempt to explain away the attacks upon innocent civilians in his own country, and he does not shy away from supporting any kind of just and morally permissible response on the part of one's government to deal with such attacks (seen any such response lately?). Mr. Feisal Abdul-Rauf is just another Mohammedan snake-oil salesman. Nothing more.
By the way, has anyone heard from the "happy" conciliar "archbishop of the Archdiocese of New York, Timothy "Ecumaniac" Dolan on this issue? Let me know if you hear him say something--anything--on this issue. Perhaps he is working on an "ecumenically correct" compromise with imam Feisal Abdul-Rauf? Perhaps he is unwilling to stand up for "religious liberty" for fear of offending the families, many of whom are Catholic, of the survivors of the September 11, 2001, attacks? Oh, well, do let me know when you hear something.
Looky here at this. It's waaaaay past my curfew! I should have been in my bed fast asleep an hour ago. All right, enough said.
What's the point: Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order? Get it?
In the meantime, pray your Rosaries, offer up your prayers and sacrifices to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and check back in two days for the next thrilling, earth shattering article on this site.
