More Zeal For A False God Than Catholics Have For The True God
by Thomas A. Droleskey
A wave of retaliatory violence has swept over Afghanistan in the aftermath of the burning of a copy of the blasphemous Koran by a poor ignoramus named Terry Jones, a man who fashions himself as some kind of Protestant "pastor" in Gainesville, Florida (see Fury Over Koran-Burning Claims 5 More Lives). Terry Jones put the Koran on "trial" for crimes against humanity blasphemy at his own false church, which blasphemes God in its own right by propagating heresies about Christianity, starting with the very nature of the visible, hierarchical society, Holy Mother Church, that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ founded to be our mater and magister, mother and teacher, the sole means of human sanctification and salvation.
Terry Jones, who looks for all the world like a dead ringer for the late actor Bill Williams (nee: William Katt), who was the husband of actress Barbara Hale (Della Street on Perry Mason) and the father of actor William Katt (Greatest American Hero and Paul Drake, Jr., from 1985 to 1988 in the Perry Mason two-hour movies that the late Raymond Burr, better known to the world as Chief Robert T. Ironside since the world premiere of the Ironside pilot film on Tuesday, March 28, 1967, forty-four years ago now), launched on NBC-TV on December 1, 1985, sat as a "judge" in judge's robes as the trial took place on the Second Sunday of Lent, March 20, 2011. Another false "pastor,' Wayne Sapp, lit the Koran ablaze after it was "guilty" of crimes against humanity and then sentenced to "execution" (see Mister Jones and the Koran ).
There are several aspects to this matter that will be addressed with an eye toward maintaining my newfound spirit of brevity.
There's Blasphemy and Then There's Blasphemy
Let it be stipulated that the Koran is indeed a blasphemous book that does indeed incite adherents of the false religion of Mohammedanism to kill and commit other terrible crimes against those who do not follow or--worse yet in the Mohammedan view--blaspheme their false god, Allah, or the name of the false "prophet," Mohammed. It is no offense to the true God, Who has entrusted His Sacred Deposit of Faith exclusively to the Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication, to burn a copy of the Koran. As has been noted in numerous articles on this site, Catholic priests have burned false temples and destroyed the symbols of false idols as they evangelized pagan and barbaric peoples at various times in the nearly two millennia of Holy Mother Church's history. Indeed, it may very well be the duty of Catholics to destroy the symbols of false religions in certain circumstances.
The book of no false religion is "sacred." Each book of each false religion is of the devil, as is the each and every false religion of its very demonic nature. The Koran is deserving of no respect. It is not sacred. It certainly can be burned, although copies of this blasphemous document, which was called "this dear and precious book" by Ratzinger/Benedict XVI in the Vatican in 2008 several weeks after having esteemed another copy with his own priestly hands at the John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington, District of Columbia, on Thursday, April 17, 1968, as it was called by Milwaukee auxiliary "bishop" Richard Sklba as
"the revered word of God, proclaiming God’s message of peace" (see Many Acts of Evil Demand Many Acts of Reparation and see the video of the April 17, 2008 Interreligious Gathering) can be kept in a personal or institutional library as a reference book for those trained in Semitic languages and who are scholars in the field of dissecting the errors of Mohammedanism.
The reason that the Koran should not be burned at the present time, however, has nothing to do with having "respect" for the adherents of a false religion, many of whom attack and kill Catholics and Orthodox Christians in Mohammedan countries, as is happening in Egypt and Iraq at the present time, and who regularly burn American presidents and flags in effigy. Our love of the true God of Divine Revelation, He Who is the same God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost who was rejected by the false "prophet" Mohammed as Hilaire Belloc made abundantly clear in the early part of the last century:
Mohammedanism was a heresy: that is the essential point to grasp before going any further. It began as a heresy, not as a new religion. It was not a pagan contrast with the Church; it was not an alien enemy. It was a perversion of Christian doctrine. It vitality and endurance soon gave it the appearance of a new religion, but those who were contemporary with its rise saw it for what it was not a denial, but an adaptation and a misuse, of the Christian thing. It differed from most (not from all) heresies in this, that it did not arise within the bounds of the Christian Church. The chief heresiarch, Mohammed himself, was not, like most heresiarchs, a man of Catholic birth and doctrine to begin with. He sprang from pagans. But that which he taught was in the main Catholic doctrine, oversimplified. It was the great Catholic world on the frontiers of which he lived, whose influence was all around him and whose territories he had known by travel which inspired his convictions. He came of, and mixed with, the degraded idolaters of the Arabian wilderness, the conquest of which had never seemed worth the Romans' while. . . .
But the central point where this new heresy struck home with a mortal blow against Catholic tradition was a full denial of the Incarnation.
Mohammed did not merely take the first steps toward that denial, as the Arians and their followers had done; he advanced a clear affirmation, full and complete, against the whole doctrine of an incarnate God. He taught that Our Lord was the greatest of all the prophets, but still only a prophet: a man like other men. He eliminated the Trinity altogether. With that denial of the Incarnation went the whole sacramental structure. He refused to know anything of the Eucharist, with its Real Presence; he stopped the sacrifice of the Mass, and therefore the institution of a special priesthood. In other words, he, like so many other lesser heresiarchs, founded his heresy on simplification. Catholic doctrine was true (he seemed to say), but it had become encumbered with false accretions; it had become complicated by needless man-made additions, including the idea that its founder was Divine, and the growth of a parasitical caste of priests who battened on a late, imagined, system of Sacraments which they alone could administer.
All those corrupt accretions must be swept away. There is thus a very great deal in common between the enthusiasm with which Mohammed's teaching attacked the priesthood, the Mass and the sacraments, and the enthusiasm with which Calvinism, the central motive force of the Reformation, did the same. As we all know, the new teaching relaxed the marriage laws but in practice this did not affect the mass of his followers who still remained monogamous. It made divorce as easy as possible, for the sacramental idea of marriage disappeared. It insisted upon the equality of men, and it necessarily had that further factor in which it resembled Calvinism: the sense of predestination, the sense of fate; of what the followers of John Knox were always calling "the immutable decrees of God." (The Great and Enduring Heresy of Mohammed.)
Mohammedanism is not worthy of any kind of respect. Neither is its blasphemous book, the Koran, which is just as offensive to God as is every single Protestant version of the Bible, each of which is filled with distortions that do not represent but indeed pervert the Sacred Word of God that was written under the direct inspiration of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost. We do not go around burning Korans or Protestant versions of the Bible because we respect the "dignity" of the adherents of false religions or because we respect the religions themselves.
No, we do not go around burning copies Korans or of Protestant versions of the Bible or of the Talmud for the sake of preserving the common temporal good by seeking to maintain a just social peace. There is no rational good to be accomplished by burning the documents of false religions in a pluralistic society. Such actions can only inflame the passions of the adherents of false religions and lead to mutual hatreds and recriminations, if not actual acts of violence, which we see so clearly at the present time in various parts of Afghanistan. And that is the sole reason for not burning a document of a false religion, although one is certainly free to do so privately and/or to throw such a book in the dumpster. Such a book is not of God. It is of the devil.
What is true of the Koran is true also of Protestant versions of the Bible, each of which is a corruption of the Word of God and is meant to reaffirm Protestants in their errors and to lead poorly catechized Catholics, who number of the hundreds of millions worldwide today because of the apostasies and sacrileges and blasphemies of conciliarism the conciliar "shepherds," out of the true Church altogether. Protestant "bibles" are blasphemous. Protestant "worship" is both blasphemous and sacrilegious. Protestant "churches" are dens of the devil wherein a corrupted version of "Christianity" can be preached as the poor unfortunates who attend these temples of error provide the loot to keep them growing as the false "gospel" of material prosperity is preached.
Who says so? The devil himself, that's who:
It is indeed a remarkable
fact that, as the devil made use of Luther, an apostate monk, to abolish
the Mass and deny the Real Presence; in like manner, God made use of
His arch-enemy, the devil, to prove the Real Presence. He repeatedly
forced him publicly to profess his firm belief in it, to confound the
heretics for their disbelief, and acknowledge himself vanquished by Our
Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. For this purpose, God allowed a certain
Mme. Nicola Aubrey, an innocent person, to become possessed by Beelzebub
and twenty-nine other evil spirits. The possession took place on the
eighth of November, 1565, and lasted until the eighth of February, 1566.
Her parents took her to Father de Motta, a pious
priest of Vervins, in order that he might expel the demon by exorcisms
of the Church. Father de Motta tried several times to expel the evil
spirit by applying the sacred relics of the holy cross, but he could not
succeed; Satan would not depart. At last, inspired by the Holy Ghost,
he resolved to expel the devil by means of the sacrament of Our Lord's
Body and Blood. Whilst Nicola was lying in a state of unnatural
lethargy, Father de Motta placed the Blessed Sacrament upon her lips,
and instantly the infernal spell was broken; Nicola was restored to
consciousness, and received Holy Communion with every mark of devotion.
As soon as Nicola had received the sacred Body of Our Lord, her face
became bright and beautiful as the face of an angel, and all who saw her
were filled with joy and wonder, and they blessed God from their inmost
hearts. With the permission of God, Satan returned and again took
possession of Nicola.
As the strange circumstances of Nicola's
possession became known everywhere, several Calvinist preachers came
with their followers, to "expose this popish cheat," as they said. On
their entrance, the devil saluted them mockingly, called them by name,
and told them that they had come in obedience to him. One of
the preachers took his Protestant prayer book, and began to read it with
a very solemn face. The devil laughed at him, and putting on a most
comical look, he said: "Ho! Ho! My good friend; do you intend to expel me with your prayers and hymns? Do you think that they will cause me any pain? Don't you know that they are mine? I helped to compose them!"
"I will expel thee in the name of God," said the preacher, solemnly.
"You!" said the devil mockingly. "You will not expel me either in the name of God, or in the name of the devil. Did you ever hear of one devil driving out another?"
"I am not a devil," said the preacher, angrily, "I am a servant of Christ."
"A servant of Christ, indeed!" said Satan, with a sneer. "What! I tell you, you are worse than I am. I believe, and you do not want to believe. Do you suppose that you can expel me from the body of this miserable wretch? Ha! Go first and expel all the devils that are in your own heart!"
The preacher took his leave, somewhat
discomfited. On going away, he said, turning up the whites of his eyes,
"O Lord, I pray thee, assist this poor creature!"
"And I pray Lucifer," cried the evil spirit, "that he may never leave you, but may always keep you firmly in his power, as he does now. Go about your business, now. You are all mine, and I am your master."
On the arrival of the priest, several of the
Protestants went away -- they had seen and heard more than they wanted.
Others, however, remained; and great was their terror when they saw how
the devil writhed and howled in agony, as soon as the Blessed Sacrament
was brought near him. At last the evil spirit departed, leaving Nicola
in a state of unnatural trance. While she was in this state, several of
the preachers tried to open her eyes, but they found it impossible to do
so. The priest then placed the Blessed Sacrament on Nicola's lips, and
instantly she was restored to consciousness. Rev. Father de Motta then
turned to the astonished preachers, and said: "Go now, ye preachers of
the new Gospel; go and relate everywhere what you have seen and heard.
Do not deny any longer that Our Lord Jesus Christ is really and truly
present in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar. Go now, and let not human
respect hinder you from confessing the truth." (Father Michael Muller,
C.SS.R., Exorcism of Nicola Aubrey.)
Our Lady herself has demonstrated her displeasure with the protesters who compose the ranks of the false sects of Protestantism:
Heaven was watching over Pierre and after seven
years, on March 25, 1656, Our Lady appeared to him. On that day, Pierre
was working in the field and saw a Lady standing far away on a little
hill. The Lady wore a white dress, a blue mantle and had a black veil
over her head, which partly covered her face. As the Lady came toward
Pierre, she suddenly picked up speed and in a flash, she stood beside
him. With her beautiful, sweet voice, the Lady spoke to Pierre, "God be
with you my friend!"
For a moment, Pierre stood in amazement. The Lady spoke again, "What is being said about this devotion? Do many people come?"
Pierre replied, "Yes many people come."
Then the Lady said, "Where does that heretic live who cut the willow tree? Does he not want to be converted?"
Pierre mumbled an answer.
The Lady became more serious, "Do you think
that I do not know that you are the heretic? Realize that your end is
at hand. If you do not return to the True Faith, you will be cast into
Hell! But if you change your beliefs, I shall protect you before God.
Tell people to pray that they may gain the good graces which, God in His
mercy has offered to them." (See: If You Do Not Return to the True Faith, You Will Be Cast Into Hell!)
Terry Jones and Wayne Sapp are just as much in the grip of the devil as are the Mohammedans. They, like each and every other Protestant and each and every member of every false religion, are in need of converting to the true Faith before they die. They risk the fires of Hell for all eternity if they do not. That neither of these poor uninformed victims of the Protestant Revolution and the theological relativism and religious indifferentism spawned thereby realize this is yet another sad commentary that the world continues to suffer from the consequences of the sins of the lecherous drunkard, Martin Luther, and of the apostasies of the conciliar revolutionaries who preach and practice a false ecumenism that reaffirms adherents of false religions in their false beliefs until the points of their very deaths.
While it is indeed true that Mohammedanism is blasphemous and that its hideous Koran is meant of its demonic nature to incite violence, it is also true that Protestantism is blasphemous and has been used by the devil from its being launched by Father Martin Luther O.S.A., to foment hatred for Holy Mother Church and for the very sacramental system that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ instituted for our sanctification and salvation, thus throwing into utter confusion the meaning of even a corrupted version of Sacred Writ as each individual is said to be his own "interpreter" of the passages contained therein.
We do not, however, go around burning Protestant bibles or burning Protestant church buildings. We pray for the conversion of individual Protestants as we distribute truly blessed Green Scapulars to those whom God's Providence places in our paths each day, making sure to fulfill Our Lady's request in 1840 to Sister Justine Bisquyburo to pray "Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us, now and at the hour our death" for each soul to whom we give a Green Scapular. We should be just as solicitous of the conversion of all non-Catholics, including adherents of the Talmud and Koran. Catholics will defend the honor and majesty and glory of God and the rights of Holy Mother when circumstances call upon them to do so. They do not, however, stage mock trials to find as "guilty" that which is an established fact: that any book of any religion other than the true religion, Catholicism, is hideous in the sight of God and worthy of no esteem or respect whatsoever.
The Bag Man in a Karakul Hat is the One Responsible for the Violence in Afghanistan
As provocative as the burning of the Koran by "Judge" Terry Jones and "Executioner" Wally Sapp was, the event was not reported widely in the international press. Mohammedans in the outlying reaches of Afghanistan knew nothing about the burning of their blasphemous book until Bag Man in a Karakul Hat, the corrupt Afghan President, Hamid Karzai, told them about it on Thursday, March 24, 2011:
The Koran was burned on March 20, but many
Afghans only found out about it when Afghan President Hamid Karzai
condemned the desecration four days later. Protests broke out on Friday
in Kabul, Herat in western Afghanistan and thousands flooded the streets
of Mazar-i-Sharif, the provincial capital of Balkh province in the
Hundreds of Afghans, carrying long sticks
and holding copies of the Koran over their heads, also marched through
Kandahar, the largest city in southern Afghanistan and the cradle of the
insurgency. The crackle of gunfire could be heard throughout the city,
which was blanketed by thick black smoke. (Fury Over Koran-Burning Claims 5 More Lives).
It is Hamid Karzai who is responsible for inciting the violence and the killing in Afghanistan no matter how much he speaks now in condemnation of the killings that his playing the part of Chet Huntley and David Brinkley did to provoke his citizens to act in defense of their false "god" and their false religion and their false "holy book."
Hamid Karzai plays both ends against the middle, pocketing millions upon millions of American taxpayer dollars while playing footsie with Mohammedan forces seeking to kill Americans who have the misfortune of being stationed so needlessly in a country that proved inhospitable to such diverse empires as those of the United Kingdom of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The corrupt, completely amoral Karzai likes to take American money as he pretends to oppose the Taliban while seeking to reassure fervent Mohammedans that he is one of them, a man who shares complete "outrage" over the offenses given to the Mohammedan "holy book" that is a work of heresy and blasphemy from beginning to end, a work of the devil himself and of no one else. There's no skin off of Hamid Karzai's nose as he ingratiates himself to fervent Mohammedans in his country while he continues living high on the American fatted hog in the presidential palace in Kabul.
Hypocrisy from Mohammedan Leaders and From Barack Hussein Obama
Although Catholics have been killed by the hundreds in Iraq and Catholics and members of various Coptic sects have been killed in Egypt lately, ambassadors from several Mohammedan protested to the Vatican to demand a condemnation of Terry Jones's burning of the Koran, believing the Protestant ignoramus to be a priest of the Catholic Church, proving themselves to be as ignorant as Jones himself:
Islamic countries ambassadors to Vatican in a statement condemned insult to Holy Quran by an American priest.
In a joint statement, the ambassadors condemned insult to the holy book and called the action disgusting.
ambassador to Vatican, in a letter to foreign minister of Vatican, by
expressing deep sorrow over such indecent act, called for immediate
action in taking stance and condemning the measure by Vatican.
American priest, in a disgusting act, put Holy Quran on trial in a
church in southeastern state of Florida, USA, and then burned it as, he
declared, an element of killing and terror. (Islamic countries ambassadors to Vatican condemn insult to Holy Quran," from the Ahlul Bayt News Agency.)
Although the Mohammedan ambassadors appear to have referred to Terry Jones as a "priest" (the press report quoted above does not provide any link to the statement that is said to have been made by the ambassadors), their ignorance is perhaps forgivable as they, being the instruments of the devil whether or not they realize it, look to the man they consider to be the "pope" as the representative of all Christians in the world, admitting in a left-handed manner that the man considered to be the Vicar of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is the leader of what they hate with a demonic fury, Christianity. Why wouldn't those not versed in the history of the past nearly five hundred years not look to the "pope" and his Vatican officials to correct a supposed Christian "pastor" if they do not realize that the "pastor" in question is as much a tool of the devil as is their own false religion, Mohammedanism? These Mohammedans see Catholicism and Christianity as one and the same, which is, of course, exactly correct.
It is nothing other than hypocritical, though, for the Mohammedan ambassadors to protest the burning of their Koran while remaining mute as Catholics are slaughtered in Iraq and as Catholics and Copts are slaughtered in Egypt. Indeed, the penultimate apologist for Mohammedanism in the secular world, Barack Hussein Obama has aped his predecessor, George Walker Bush, who kept insisting that Mohammedanism is "a religion of peace," by remaining absolutely mute about the slaughter of Chaldean Rite Catholics in Iraq. Not a word of protest. How hypocritical it is for Obama to condemn the burning of the Koran that was so near and dear to his father and stepfather while continuing his silence about the slaughter of Catholics and Copts and Orthodox Christians in Mohammedan countries:
I condemn in the strongest possible terms the attack on the United
Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan today. Together with the
American people, I offer my deepest condolences to those injured and
killed, as well as to their loved ones. The brave men and women of the
United Nations, including the Afghan staff, undertake their work in
support of the Afghan people. Their work is essential to building a
stronger Afghanistan for the benefit of all its citizens. We stress the
importance of calm and urge all parties to reject violence and resolve
differences through dialogue. (Statement by the Caesar Following the Attack on UNAMA.)
What was that I was saying two years ago about Caesar Obamus and Benedict XVI being Kindred Spirits of the New World Order? Perhaps Barack Hussein Obama has a future after his second term ends on January 20, 2017, in the service of some conciliar Vatican dicastery promoting the resolution of "differences through dialogue." What do you think?
I think that it's a real possibility.
Obviously, Obama is a hypocrite as he speaks about a possible "bloodbath" in Libya that may never have taken place (see Was a Bloodbath Really Looming?) while presiding over and helping to fund the bloodbath of the innocent preborn by means of chemical abortifacients and surgical abortions (see Blood Flows Freely in America and Libya). The daily bloodbath taking taking place in the United States of America has played its own role in helping to spawn the chastisements of the present moment.
Not to be outdone in the parade of hypocrites is the Rehman Malik, foreign minister of Pakistan, a country when Mohammedan violence has killed and injured scores upon scores of "infidels" in recent years. Rehman Malik, however, did the Mohammedan ambassadors one better, calling upon and the "pope" and Interpol to condemn the Koran burning by the Judge Joseph Albert Wapner wannabe, Terry Jones:
Islamabad (AsiaNews) - The
Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik - on the recommendation of
President Asi Ali Zardari - has sent a letter to Pope Benedict XVI and
the Secretary General of Interpol Ronald Nobel, in which calls on them
to condemn the burning of the Koran and take action against the instigator, the American pastor Terry Jones. The
Senate in Islamabad has also intervened on the episode, unanimously
passing a resolution urging the U.S. to bring the controversial preacher
The mad act of Pastor Wayne Sapp, who last March 20 in
Florida burned a Koran under the supervision of the evangelical preacher
Terry Jones, has sparked controversy and violence. The initiative has been repeatedly strongly condemned by Christian leaders in Pakistan and India, defined as "an insane and disrespectful act” by a U.S. citizen that has nothing to do with the Christians of Pakistan. However, the burning of the Koran has sparked the reaction of Islamic fundamentalists who, in the space of a few days, have attacked three churches and killed two people, fueling the climate of fear and distrust within the Christian community.
The letter addressed to the head of Interpol, explains
Rehman Malik, demands that the matter be treated as a case of "violent
crime" and that urgent measures be taken for the future, to ensure such
episodes are not repeated. The resolution adopted
unanimously by the Senate, as well as requiring urgent action against
the pastor Terry Jones, calls on all Muslim countries to express their
indignation against the United States and the United Nations to register
a "shameful act" towards Islam.
The interior minister also condemns attacks on churches
and the burning of some copies of the Bible, the work of Islamic
fundamentalists. Malik explains that he has instructed
security forces to investigate the matter and take "appropriate
measures" to "safeguard the rights of minorities, their properties and
In recent days, the Christian community has repeatedly
emphasized that there are no ties between the United States, Pastor
Terry Jones and Pakistani Christians, who "were born and belong only to
the motherland." Bishop Anthony Rufin of Islamabad / Rawalpindi, has
repeatedly reiterated that "we should not be equated to the Americans." Fr. Anwar
Patras, a Catholic priest, has added that the Christian community,
first of all, belongs to Pakistan: "We were born in this land and we
will be buried here, we have no connection with Pastor Terry Jones and
his sick ideas." (Pakistani Minister calls on Interpol and the Pope to Condemn Koran Burning.)
Well, it's nice that Rehman Malik condemned the burning of various Protestant churches, although his assurance that he has instructed his "security forces" to investigate the matter is a little bit cheeky as the government of Pakistan has no intention of prosecuting, no less punishing, any Mohammedan who does his duty under the Koran to attack infidels and destroy what they believe to be are places of false worship. How does Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI believe that Mohammedans are going to respond to Assisi III. They are not interested in Assisi III.
Iran, which has spread Mohammedan terror throughout the world, including the arms that have been used to kill Chaldean Rite Catholics in Iraq, joined in the exercise of hypocrisy:
Iran’s official Fars news agency reports that the Iranian Foreign Ministry “strongly condemned the recent insult
to the Muslims’ holy book in the US state of Florida, and warned that
Washington attempts to spread Islamophobia in the world.” Ministry
spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast condemned the “abhorrent” crime as
“contributing to US hegemonic plots, which seek to create a rift between
The event in question occurred last Sunday, when preacher Wayne Sapp
set fire to a copy of the Quran in Florida. Sapp is a member of the Dove
World Outreach Center, headed by Pastor Terry Jones, who famously
threatened to burn a Quran last September 11, and achieved short-lived
NRO readers may remember that Iran recently suspended Hohabet News after it reported that the Iranian government itself had seized and burned 600 New Testaments in Salmas.
What’s the Farsi word for chutzpah?
Iran’s own Bible-burnings are only one part of its ongoing repression
of Christians, Baha’is, Sufis, and others. Christian Solidarity
Worldwide reports that, in two weeks, five Iranian Christians, who were recently
sentenced in Shiraz to one year’s imprisonment for “crimes against the
Islamic Order,” will be tried for blasphemy. (Iran Burns Bibles, Condemns Quran Burning.)
The answer to this hypocrisy is not conciliarism's penchant for "inter-religious dialogue" or the American brand of indifference to actual blasphemy, as was proposed by the author of the National Review Online article just above. The answer to this hypocrisy is to seek the unconditional conversion of all men and all nations to the true Faith, the Catholic Faith, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order.
Alas, the lords of conciliarism do not believe this, choosing to offend and blaspheme God boldly and arrogantly in full violation of the First and Second Commandments. They do not believe that God is offended by all forms of false worship. Indeed, some of them would blanche at any suggestion that the recent earthquake and tsunami and nuclear power disaster in Japan is in any way related to the hideous devil worship that takes place in the Land of the Rising Sun (for an excellent description of the false worship in Japan, please see http://www.teclahashimoto.com/GreatJapanQuake2011.html.)
Constantly Showing Respect for False Religions
The lords of conciliarism offend and blaspheme God in many ways, starting, of course, with the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service. They show constant signs of respect for false religions, something that millions upon millions of Catholics refused to do at the point of their very deaths, preferring martyrdom to any show of esteem for a false religion or their false gods or their false symbols or their false places of worship that are so sacred to the devil.
Pope Pius XII reminded us of this in Ci Riesce, December 6, 1953:
Thus the two principles
are clarified to which recourse must be had in concrete cases for the
answer to the serious question concerning the attitude which the jurist,
the statesman and the sovereign Catholic state is to adopt in
consideration of the community of nations in regard to a formula of
religious and moral toleration as described above. First: that
which does not correspond to truth or to the norm of morality
objectively has no right to exist, to be spread or to be activated.
Secondly: failure to impede this with civil laws and coercive measures
can nevertheless be justified in the interests of a higher and more
general good. .
The Church must live among
them and with them [the nations and peoples of the world]; she can never
declare before anyone that she is "not interested." The mandate
imposed upon her by her divine Founder renders it impossible for her to
follow a policy of non-interference or laissez-faire. She has the duty
of teaching and educating in all the inflexibility of truth and
goodness, and with this absolute obligation she must remain and work
among men and nations that in mental outlook are completely different
from each other.
Let Us return now, however, to the two propositions mentioned above: and in the first place to the one which denies unconditionally everything that is religiously false and morally wrong. With
regard to this point there never has been, and there is not now, in the
Church any vacillation or any compromise, either in theory or in
Her deportment has not changed in the
course of history, nor can it change whenever or wherever, under the
most diversified forms, she is confronted with the choice: either
incense for idols or blood for Christ. The place where you are now
present, Eternal Rome, with the remains of a greatness that was and with
the glorious memories of its martyrs, is the most eloquent witness to
the answer of the Church. Incense was not burned before the idols, and
Christian blood flowed and consecrated the ground. But the temples of
the gods lie in the cold devastation of ruins howsoever majestic; while
at the tombs of the martyrs the faithful of all nations and all tongues
fervently repeat the ancient Creed of the Apostles.
Concerning the second proposition, that is to say, concerning
tolerance in determined circumstances, toleration even in cases in
which one could proceed to repression, the Church - out of regard for
those who in good conscience (though erroneous, but invincibly so) are
of different opinion - has been led to act and has acted with that
tolerance, after she became the State Church under Constantine the Great
and the other Christian emperors, always for higher and more cogent
motives. So she acts today, and also in the future she will be faced
with the same necessity. In such individual cases the attitude
of the Church is determined by what is demanded for safeguarding and
considering the bonum commune, on the one hand, the common good of the
Church and the State in individual states, and, on the other, the common
good of the universal Church, the reign of God over the whole world. In
considering the "pro" and "con" for resolving the "question of facts,"
as well as what concerns the final and supreme judge in these matters,
no other norms are valid for the Church except the norms which We have
just indicated for the Catholic jurist and statesman. (Pope Pius XII, Ci Riesce, December 6, 1953.)
Toleration is a far, far
different concept than asserting that religious falsehoods have the
ability to "contribute" to the common good, a concept that was mocked
roundly by Pope Saint Pius X in Notre Charge Apostolique,
August 15, 1910. And no one who is intellectually honest can say that
there has not been "any vacillation or any compromise, either in theory
or in practice" on the part of the leaders counterfeit church of
conciliarism concerning an unconditional denial of everything that is
religiously false and morally wrong. Happy Vesakh? Happy Diwali? (See Vesakh, Not Miller, Time at the Vatican.) A most precious and
dear document (the Koran)? Esteeming the symbols of false religions?
There has been little but vacillation and compromise both in
theory and in practice on the part of the leaders of the counterfeit
church of conciliarism concerning the nature of false religions.
Conciliarists such as Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI
and his immediate predecessor in the counterfeit church of conciliarism,
Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, have gone far, far beyond the mere
toleration of false religions by means of their words and, more
importantly, their actions. They have extolled the ability of these
false religions to contribute to the common good and to build "world
peace." Both Wojtyla and Ratzinger have esteemed the symbols of false
religions, the former with his episcopal hands, the latter with his
priestly hands. There is no way, ladies and gentlemen, for anyone to
find "continuity in discontinuity" between the esteeming of false
religions and Pope Pius XII's firm exhortation against any semblance of
esteem being shown unto their idols. A review of Bishop George Hay's The Laws of God Forbidding All Communication in Religion With Those of a False Religion will show that the Catholic Church has consistently condemned the
actions undertaken by the conciliar "pontiffs." Indeed, we must make
many acts of reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the
Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for those offenses to the honor
and majesty and glory of God.
It should not be surprising, therefore, to learn that the conciliar "bishops" of Pakistan have joined the "condemn Terry Jones and Wayne Sapp" bandwagon that is making the round in Mohammedan countries these days:
Multan (Agenzia Fides) – The Bishops of Pakistan, together in Multan
for the Assembly of the Episcopal Conference, have strongly condemned
the incident two days when Pastor Terry Jones set fire to the Koran. He
had already risen to international headlines in September 2010 for
threatening to make this sacrilegious act. “As Bishops of Pakistan we
strongly condemn this: it is a gesture that does not reflect Christian
values in any way nor the doctrine of the Church. We note with regret
that someone who calls himself Pastor does not know his religion nor
common decency,” said the statement sent to Fides.
the true message of their faith, Christians are obliged to respect
other faiths and other people,” continues the text. “Fundamentalism or
extremism in any religion are deplorable. They constitute a threat to
peace and harmony among believers of different faiths. There are more
similarities than differences between believers of different faiths.”
The Bishops call on the U.S. Government to take appropriate action and
call on all citizens of Pakistan, Christians and Muslims, to provide a
civil response, not “to add fuel to the fire.” (Bishops condemn the burning of the Koran in U.S.)
More to the point, of course,
Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI has gone far beyond showing respect for the adherents of false religions. He has made no such qualifications speaking about false religions, which he believes are capable of contributing to the "betterment" of the world, and has he has praised places of false worship. He has taken off his shoes in two different mosques, one in Istanbul, Turkey, on November 30, 2006, and one in Jerusalem on May 12, 2009, so as to signify being in a holy place. He has used the following language, which readers will note is without any qualification or reservation whatsoever, to refer to the "sacredness" of mosques:
Places of worship, like this splendid Al-Hussein Bin Talal mosque named after the revered late King, stand out like jewels across the earth’s surface. From the ancient to the modern, the magnificent to the humble, they all point to the divine, to the Transcendent One, to the Almighty. And through the centuries these sanctuaries have drawn men and women into their sacred space to pause, to pray, to acknowledge the presence of the Almighty, and to recognize that we are all his creatures. (Speech to Muslim religious leaders, members of the Diplomatic Corps and Rectors of universities in Jordan in front of the mosque al-Hussein bin Talal in Amman)

I cordially thank the Grand Mufti, Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, together with the Director of the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, Sheikh Mohammed Azzam al-Khatib al-Tamimi, and the Head of the Awquaf Council, Sheikh Abdel Azim Salhab, for the welcome they have extended to me on your behalf. I am deeply grateful for the invitation to visit this sacred place, and I willingly pay my respects to you and the leaders of the Islamic community in Jerusalem. (Courtesy visit to the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem at the Mount of the Temple, since when is a place of false worship "sacred" to the true God of Divine Revelation?)

Saints gave up their lives rather than to give even the appearance of such apostasy.
How do Catholics speak to Mohammedans? Please see the citations gathered by Mr. Frank Rega, the author of Saint Francis of Assisi and the Conversion of the Muslims (
How do Catholics treat the symbols of false religions when not encumbered by the need to preserve social peace in a pluralistic society or to maintain their lives in a country that is dominated by adherents of a false religion or religions? See Always Happy to Make Room for Baal and His Friends for a series of quotations concerning the actions of Saint Benedict of Nursia and Saint Boniface and Saint Francis Xavier.
I will repeat, my friends, no true pope of the Catholic Church has ever done and said the things that the conciliar "popes" and done and said as they have given the appearance of validating false religions.
How can one not come to the conclusion that conciliarism validates false religions, at least on the level of pastoral praxis, if one takes a good, honest look at the Assisi Day of World Prayer for Peace on October 27, 1986?
These images communicate very clearly conciliarism's alliance with the devil. The "true" spirit of false ecumenism's desire for "inter-religious dialogue" that was envisioned by the "Second" Vatican Council is nothing other than complete and utter madness. Would Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ placed Himself as an equal with the leaders of false religions, including those that deny His Sacred Divinity? How is it possible for a man who thinks he is the Vicar of Christ on earth to do so and remain a friend of Christ the King, no less a member of the Catholic Church. How is "syncretism" not conveyed by such images as leaders of false religions are treated as servants of God no matter now much Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and his Vatican Press Office denies that the counterfeit church of conciliarism is engaged in acts of syncretism (see the appendix below for the press release describing the preliminary program for Assisi III on October 27, 2011, the twenty-fifth anniversary of Assisi I):
From this passage the learned translators of the Rheims New Testament, in their note, justly observe, "That,
in matters of religion, in praying, hearing their sermons, presence at
their service, partaking of their sacraments, and all other
communicating with them in spiritual things, it is a great and damnable
sin to deal with them." And if this be the case with all in general, how much more with those who are well instructed and better versed in their religion than others? For their doing any of these things must be a much greater crime than in ignorant people, because they know their duty better. (Bishop George Hay, The Laws of God Forbidding All Communication in Religion With Those of a False Religion.)
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.)
Mohammedans Take Offenses to Their False Religion Seriously While Most Catholics Snore Concerning Offenses Given the True Faith
Relatively small numbers of Catholics can indeed get themselves all worked up about various offenses given to God and the Holy Faith by public officials and in the various outlets of what passes for popular culture in this country, although all too many Catholics are not at all upset about motion pictures or television programs or "music" or "art" that blasphemes God. Some even point out how the most of the people in the country-at-large get outraged at offenses given to Talmudic Judaism and Mohammedanism but are very sanguine about attacks upon Catholicism. Most Catholics are, however, far, far too busy being diverted by their bread and circuses to be concerned about having any sense of justifiable outrage for the honor and glory and majesty of the Most Blessed Trinity.
Those few Catholics, relatively speaking, who are concerned about such outrages, however, share the following in common with the lion's share of Catholics who are more concerned about such bread and circuses as the start of the violent, legalized warfare that is otherwise known as the National Football League season: each of them, with very few and very exceptions, is absolutely silent about the outrages, offenses, sacrileges and blasphemies committed by the conciliar "popes" against the honor and glory and majesty of the Most Blessed Trinity and the Holy Faith Itself.
When, I wonder very frequently, will these words of Pope Saint Leo the Great, whose feast we celebrate one week from today, Monday in April Week, April 11, 2011, resonate in the hearts of Catholics as the current false "pontiff" says such things that "peace" is the result of the "coexistence of religions" or that mosques and synagogues are "sacred" or by treating non-Catholic "clergy" as having a valid mission from God to serve Him and to save souls?
But it is vain for them to adopt the name of catholic, as they do not oppose these blasphemies: they must believe them, if they can listen so patiently to such words. (Pope Saint Leo the Great, Epistle XIV, To Anastasius, Bishop of Thessalonica, St. Leo the Great | Letters 1-59.)
While it is efficacious to write articles about the various symptoms of the larger apostasy that is to be found in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, it is nonetheless vital to recognize that no true pope in the nearly two thousand year history of the Catholic Church has done and said the hideously blasphemous things done by the conciliar "popes" and their "bishops." While we must condemn and fight against contraception and abortion and perversity and other evils, we must first of all fight for the honor and glory and majesty of the Most Blessed Trinity that are being mocked by the lords of conciliarism. How in the world do we think that silence or acquiescence in the face of this mockery is in the service of the love of God as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church?
Why are Catholics so reluctant to defend the honor and glory and majesty of the true God while adherents of false religions are so eager to defend their false "gods"?
We must pray for the unconditional conversion of all of those who are steeped in the world's false religions, including the false religion of conciliarism that has offended Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ so much and has done so much damage to the souls He redeemed by the shedding of every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross. We must pray daily for our own conversion away from our sins as we seek to live more penitentially as the consecrated slaves of Our Lord through His Most Blessed Mother's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, consoling the good God and making reparation for our sins as best as we can by praying as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits.
We must also pray for the conversion of our nation to the true Faith. Impossible? Nothing is impossible with God. The Apostles should have stayed in the Upper Room in Jerusalem on Pentecost Sunday if the conversion of men and their nations to the true Faith is impossible. Never let any Americanist or other garden-variety conciliarism tell you that it is "impossible" to convert any nation to the true Faith. If this self-serving excuse for refusing to take one's duty as a soldier in the Army of Christ is true, then Our Lord, God Himself, Christ the King, must have been lying when He told the Eleven to do precisely this as He Ascended to His Co-Eternal and Co-Equal Father's right hand in glory on Ascension Thursday:
And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, unto the mountain where
Jesus had appointed them. And seeing him 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.
(Matthew 28: 16-20.)
This time of chastisement, and it is a time of chastisement, will pass. There will be the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and it will be a glorious triumph beyond all telling in perfect fulfillment of her Fatima as people of different ethnicities and races live and work united as Catholics for the greater honor and glory of the Most Holy Trinity as the clients of the Immaculate Heart of Mary to the shouts of:
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.
Viva Cristo Rey! Vivat Christus Rex!
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.
Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.

Vatican Press Release of the Preliminary Program for the Assisi III Travesty (a more "sober" and frugal" sequel to Assisi I and Assisi III; more on this in tomorrow's commentary on this website)
On 1 January 2011, after the
Angelus, Pope Benedict XVI announced that he wished to commemorate the
25th anniversary of the historic meeting that took place in Assisi on 27
October 1986, at the wish of the Venerable Servant of God John Paul II.
On the day of the anniversary, 27 October this year, the Holy Father
intends to hold a Day of reflection, dialogue and prayer for peace and
justice in the world, making a pilgrimage to the home of Saint Francis
and inviting fellow Christians from different denominations,
representatives of the world’s religious traditions and, in some sense,
all men and women of good will, to join him once again on this journey.
The Day will take as its theme: “Pilgrims of truth, pilgrims of peace”. Every
human being is ultimately a pilgrim in search of truth and goodness.
Believers too are constantly journeying towards God: hence the
possibility, indeed the necessity, of speaking and entering into
dialogue with everyone, believers and unbelievers alike, without
sacrificing one’s own identity or indulging in forms of syncretism. To
the extent that the pilgrimage of truth is authentically lived, it opens
the path to dialogue with the other, it excludes no one and it commits
everyone to be a builder of fraternity and peace. These are the elements that the Holy Father wishes to place at the centre of reflection.
For this reason, as well as representatives of Christian
communities and of the principal religious traditions, some figures from
the world of culture and science will be invited to share the journey –
people who, while not professing to be religious, regard themselves as
seekers of the truth and are conscious of a shared responsibility for
the cause of justice and peace in this world of ours. The image
of pilgrimage therefore sums up the meaning of the event. There will be
an opportunity to look back over the path already travelled from that
first meeting in Assisi to the following one in January 2002, and also
to look ahead to the future, with a view to continuing, in company with
all men and women of good will, to walk along the path of dialogue and
fraternity, in the context of a world in rapid transformation. Saint
Francis, poor and humble, will once more welcome everyone to his home
town, which has become a symbol of brotherhood and peace.
The delegations will set off from Rome by train on the morning of 27 October, together with the Holy Father. Upon
arrival in Assisi, they will make their way to the Basilica of S. Maria
degli Angeli, where the previous meetings will be recalled and the
theme of the Day will be explored in greater depth. Leaders of some of the delegations present will make speeches and the Holy Father will likewise deliver an address.
There will follow a simple lunch, shared by the delegates: a
meal under the banner of sobriety, intended to express fraternal
conviviality, and at the same time solidarity in the suffering of so
many men and women who do not know peace. There will follow a
period of silence for individual reflection and prayer. In the
afternoon, all who are present in Assisi will make their way towards the
Basilica of Saint Francis. It will be a pilgrimage in which, for the
final stretch, the members of the delegations will also take part; it is
intended to symbolize the journey of every human being who assiduously
seeks the truth and actively builds justice and peace. It will take
place in silence, leaving room for personal meditation and prayer. In
the shadow of Saint Francis’ Basilica, where the previous meetings were
also concluded, the final stage of the Day will include a solemn
renewal of the joint commitment to peace.
In preparation for this Day, Pope Benedict XVI will preside over a
Prayer Vigil at Saint Peter’s the previous evening, together with the
faithful of the Diocese of Rome. Particular Churches and
communities throughout the world are invited to organize similar times
of prayer. In the coming weeks the Cardinal Presidents of the Pontifical
Councils for the Promotion of Christian Unity and of Interreligious
Dialogue and the Pontifical Council for Culture will write in the Holy
Father’s name to all those invited. The Pope asks the Catholic faithful
to join him in praying for the celebration of this important event and
he is grateful to all those who will be able to be present in Saint
Francis’ home town to share this spiritual pilgrimage. (Preliminary Program published for Assisi III Travesty.)
