Muslims Attack Iraq Catholic Church - 52 Dead

I ask you all to offer your prayers for the 52 dead including 2 priests and at least one child at Our Lady Of Deliverance Catholic Church in Iraq. Muslims attacked the church and took the congregation hostage. The church was stormed by the Iraqi Security Forces, by the time the smoke cleared, there were 52 dead, 56 wounded.

We recognize the continued attacks on Christians in the Middle East as an attempt to remove the Church of Christ from the Middle East, and they intend to do so by killing or terrorizing the Christian population to the point that they leave their homelands.

From the Catholic News Service:

Syrian Catholic Patriarch Ignace Joseph III Younan was in Canada when the blasts occurred. In an e-mail to Catholic News Service Nov. 1 while he was en route to Baghdad, he criticized the lack of security for Christian places of worship and called on "Iraqi parties to overcome their personal and confessional interests and look for the good of the Iraqi people who have elected them."

"There are a few churches and Christian institutions left in Baghdad, not so great a number that it is not unreasonable for them to be protected, security-wise," he said, noting that the security being provided by the government is "far less than what we have hoped for and requested."

"Christians are slaughtered in Iraq, in their homes and churches, and the so-called 'free' world is watching in complete indifference, interested only in responding in a way that is politically correct and economically opportune, but in reality is hypocritical," said the patriarch, who served as bishop of the New Jersey-based Syrian-rite diocese in the United States and Canada from 1995 until his election as patriarch in 2009.

The patriarch demanded "that the U.S. Congress, the United Nations, the International Commission for Civil Rights and the League of Arabic States" condemn the actions at the church and "take the appropriate action to defend innocent Christians brutally singled out because of their religion, in Iraq and some other Middle Eastern countries."
Pope Benedict was less forceful in his remarks, asking that people of good will to act together for peace in the Middle East.

A Call To The Faithful

Thanks to Mr. Vacula (of all people!) for pointing this article out to me. A very fine article on a hit piece done on Archbishop Nienstedt for promoting Catholic teaching and for calling on Catholics to be 100% authentic Catholics, which is a constant theme of this blog. It also delves into the paganistic world in which we live today and how society is regressing not progressing as they claim.

Check it out

There is a concerted effort to paint those who adhere to faithful, classical, orthodox Christianity and, most particularly, faithful Catholic Christianity, as "backward." The Christian understanding of marriage and family is not some outdated notion of a past era but the framework for a future of true freedom. It is courageous Bishops like Archbishop John Nienstedt who are paving the path to authentic progress.

GLEEfully attacking Catholics

Aren't there any of my readers out there willing to threaten to behead a Fox VP for this blasphemy? Oh! Sorry. I forgot about the whole we're Catholics thing and that we don't go around threatening and rioting and looting and beheading and stuff.

Maybe that's why they didn't have a "grilled Mohammed" on Glee the other night? What do you think?

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on last night's episode of the Fox show, "Glee":

The producers of "Glee" decided to address religion. A gay atheist was treated with sympathy for his victim status, the victimizer being Christianity, especially Catholicism. Judaism was treated with kid gloves and Islam got a pass. In other words, it was the usual Hollywood stuff.

The show revolved around a football player who sees an image of Jesus in his grilled cheese sandwich, labeling it "Grilled Cheesus." Throughout the show the audience was treated to such lines as "I think God is kind of like Santa Claus for adults. Otherwise, God's kind of a jerk, isn't he?"; "Asking someone to believe in a fantasy [religion]…however comforting, isn't a moral thing to do. It's cruel." References to Catholicism included mocking quips about "Sweet Holy Mother of God Academy."

The pivotal remark, which set the tone, was made by the gay atheist: "The reason I don't go to church is because most churches don't think very much of gay people. Or women. Or science."

The lines mouthed by the characters are a reflection of what Hollywood script writers and producers believe. Back in 1986, S. Robert Lichter, Stanley Rothman and Linda Lichter wrote a landmark book, The Media Elite. The three social scientists, not affiliated with conservative causes, found that the media elite had nothing in common with most Americans on the subject of religion: while 94 percent of Americans identified themselves as religious, only 50 percent of the media elite did. Even more striking, while 86 percent of the public said religion was important to them, 86 percent of the media elite said they seldom or never attend church. Studies since have shown that nothing much has changed.

Homosexuality and atheism are all the rage these days with the cultural elite. As "Glee" showed last night, so is ripping on Christians.

Confession by Appointment

I have written here before of my thoughts on the availabilty of confession in this Scranton Diocese. I have also written here on the attitude of some of the local clergy on the Sacrament. Here is a nice article to ruminate over by Bishop Kevin Manning.

Confession by Appointment
Bishop Kevin Manning

Cardinal Joachim Meisner, Archbishop of Cologne, stated recently that 'one of the most tragic failings that the Church suffered in the second half of the 20th century was to have neglected the gift of the Holy Spirit in the Sacrament of Penance … amongst priests this has caused tremendous loss of spiritual profile'. He goes on to say that when the priest is no longer a confessor he becomes a social worker of a religious kind. From this remark, I was left wondering about parish noticeboards and Parish Bulletin which advertise: 'Confessions – by appointment'. It is becoming rare to see the traditional notice: 'Confessions 4.00pm – 6.00pm Saturday afternoon before the Vigil Mass.' Fifteen and twenty minute slots appear to suffice.

The parable of the Prodigal Son is a wonderful reflection on the Sacrament of Penance when the young prodigal wakes up to himself, leaves his sins behind, and goes to his father confessing: 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.' The father welcomed him with open arms and a great celebration followed. This scene reflects beautifully the return of the sinner to God and the welcoming forgiveness which awaits him.

The Sacrament of Penance is a natural outcome of the overwhelming mercy of God, for it enables us to encounter the mercy of God dispensed through the ministry of a priest as communicated by Jesus Himself: 'Receive the Holy Spirit. For whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven; for those whose sins you retain they are retained.' (Jn. 20:22-23) But one needs to be aware of the need for conversion, to awaken one's consciousness of sin, to develop an understanding which includes the social dimensions of sin, together with the realization, given by St Paul, that 'however great the number of sins committed, grace is even greater' (Rom. 5:21).

The Holy Spirit who brings sin to light is also the Consoler disposing the human heart to be open to the grace of repentance and conversion. We cannot turn our world around on our own strength, we need Christian hope to help us desire the Kingdom of God and eternal life. This by placing our trust in Christ's promises, not in our own strength but in the help and the grace of the Holy Spirit.' (CCC 18:17)

An incisive way to prepare for a good Confession is to remember that the Holy Spirit came to convict the world of sin, to convict, not condemn. When the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, we still cannot but feel ashamed of what we have done, but, at the same time, we feel so loved by God that we desire God's mercy immediately.

So, my purpose in writing is to encourage you to call sin what it really is, take ownership for your actions as they really are. No matter if it has been ten, twenty or even forty years don't be afraid to go to Confession for you are going to meet One who has waited lovingly for you to come to experience his mercy.

My final words are an expression of gratitude to brother priests who zealously and lovingly dispense the mercy of God by making available frequent opportunities for the faithful to access the sacrament of penance in the spirit of St John Vianney, a true model of a confessor.

Supplied Jurisdiction Part II

Yesterday we started to look at an article by SSPX Bishop Tissier de Mallerais about one of the imagined problems with attending Mass at SSPX chapels, that of "supplied jurisdiction" and how it applies.

With the sad state of affairs in the Catholic Church in the United States and abroad today, it is only natural that there will be those well-formed Catholics who instantly recognize the immediate danger to their souls while attending Mass in certain parishes and they will begin to look for alternatives outside of the Diocesan system.

The Society of Saint Pius X is one such group outside of the Diocesan structure who just happen to have a presence here in the Diocese of Scranton.

So today we continue the good Bishop's article on supplied jurisdiction.


A problem is immediately apparent to you, as I am sure you are aware. What authority do these priests, these bishops, these district superiors, this Superior General and these traditional communities have in the Church? You ask this not only because they are, so we are told, excommunicated, but also because they do not receive their authority from the hierarchy of the official Church. Our priests do not receive the power to hear confessions from the diocesan bishops. The Priestly Society of St. Pius X has no longer any "official existence." The bishops of the Society, they say, did not receive their authority from the Holy Father. What right therefore does this traditional clergy have to require of you, the laity, to depend on it in your Catholic action?

It is this objection to which I am going to reply. What is the authority of the traditional Catholic clergy in this crisis situation, and, in particular, what is its authority with respect to traditional Catholic study groups? The thesis is the following (I can review it briefly before explaining it):

Your traditional priests —for they are your priests —your traditional bishops and your traditional parishes, have no ordinary authority, but an extraordinary authority which is a supplied authority.

Then, I will strive to examine the concrete aspects of this supplied authority of the traditional clergy so as to apply them to the case of your "Catholic action."

Supplied Jurisdiction

To explain this, let me use the example of confession in normal times. The traditional clergy has no ordinary authority over the faithful, for it has not received this authority which we call jurisdiction. It has not received it by delegation or by mandate of the Sovereign Pontiff or the diocesan bishops or of regularly appointed parish priests. This is the concrete case, especially for the priests of the Society; for example, for confessions.

You know that for the validity of a confession, the priest must have the power of hearing confessions. He normally receives this power from the bishop, but it is quite obvious that in the present situation this is impossible. Does this mean that our confessions are invalid? No.

We already resolved this question a long time ago, explaining it to the faithful as a case of necessity. Here we fall back on principles which are very elevated in the hierarchy of principles of the Church. This is the case where the Church directly confers jurisdiction on a priest without going through the different degrees of the hierarchy. It is the Mystical Body of Our Lord, Our Lord Himself as Head of His Church, which gives jurisdiction to priests in some particular cases.

Do you know, for example, the case of what is called "common error"? When a priest is in a church and has no jurisdiction, but is in stole and surplice, and one of the faithful asks him to hear his confession, this priest can indeed hear his confession, although he has as such no faculties. The reason is that the person is in error in believing he does and that is what we call "common error." In such a situation the Church makes up for the lack of jurisdiction for the good of the faithful.

Another situation is when a priest is no longer sure whether or not he has jurisdiction. There is a doubt. The Church resolves the doubt in favor of jurisdiction. Likewise in the case of danger of death. If a Catholic overturns his vehicle, and is in an emergency situation any priest has the power of hearing his confession even if he does not necessarily have jurisdiction. In such a case the Church opens wide the doors of her mercy and gives jurisdiction to any priest. It is the Church herself which gives jurisdiction, without involving the hierarchy.

"Ecclesia Supplet" —"The Church Supplies" (For the Spiritual Good of the Faithful)

These three cases are foreseen by Canon Law, and the same principle applies in each of these three cases; namely that for the good of the faithful, that is their spiritual good, the Church assures, as much as possible, that they have the means available necessary for salvation. That includes the Sacrament of Confession. We therefore say "Ecclesia supplet" —"the Church supplies," —when the priest lacks jurisdiction. Another rule of Canon Law applies: "Salus animarum suprema lex" —"The supreme law is the salvation of souls." Consequently the Church supplies for an absence of jurisdiction. It is therefore not the good of the priest which is in question. It is not to reassure the priest that he has jurisdiction to hear confessions. it is the good of the faithful which matters. It is very important to understand this. It is for your own good that your priests receive a supplied jurisdiction, that is to say for the common good of the Church and not for the personal good of the priest.

For the good of the faithful in these three cases, "Ecclesia supplet" —"the Church supplies."

I have spoken to you of the jurisdictional power of the priest, which is the power of governing. Let us say a few more words about it.

Jurisdiction: The Power to Feed a Flock

Does a priest lack something when he is ordained a priest? Would there be something missing from his priestly character which the diocesan bishop has to add by word, "Here, I give you jurisdiction," as by waving a magic wand? Would a word from the bishop give something extra to the priest? No, it is not quite this.

Jurisdiction is the fact that the bishop gives a flock to his priests, or that the Pope designates a flock for a bishop by giving him a diocese. Jurisdiction is the power which a superior has over his flock and which a pastor has over his sheep.

This is what the power of jurisdiction is: the power to feed the sheep.

You certainly know that in the Church we distinguish between the power of Holy Orders and the power of jurisdiction. When Our Lord said, "Go into the whole world and preach the gospel," "docete omnes gentes" — "and teach all nations," —it was the power of jurisdiction which he gave. "Teach," or, "Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you" (Matt. 28:19), that is to teach the —commandments of God. Thus to direct the flock is the power of jurisdiction.

Just beforehand Our Lord had spoken to His apostles of the power of Holy Orders: "Baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" (Matt. 28:19). This is the power of Holy Orders, which is the power of sanctifying, which depends directly upon the priestly character. It is the power to celebrate Holy Mass and to sanctify the faithful by the Sacraments. There must therefore be something besides the priestly character, by which the priest or the bishop receives from his hierarchical superior a part of the flock. It is that which is called the power of jurisdiction.

The Supplying of Jurisdiction in Times of Crisis

In the present situation of crisis, it is obvious that your priests cannot receive from their superiors in the church, that is to say from the diocesan bishops and from the Pope, a flock, because that flock is refused to them. This authority over a flock must, therefore, be given to them in another manner: that is, by substitute or supplied jurisdiction.

In this case it is the Church herself which gives to priests a power as the power of the pastor over his flock. Normally the power of Holy Orders, brings with it the foundation or basis of a power to organize the Church in a hierarchy. Thus the priest’s or the bishop’s power of Holy Orders normally brings with it the power of jurisdiction. It is normal for a bishop or a priest to have a particular flock over which he exercises his power of Holy Orders. But in the present situation we have to deal with the abnormal situation where the power of Holy Orders is unjustly deprived of the power of jurisdiction. It is in this case that the Church mercifully supplies jurisdiction in favor of you, the faithful, giving the jurisdiction your priests would otherwise not have.

This is therefore an extraordinary power, which is an exceptional case. In exceptional situations there are exceptional powers.

The General Extent of Supplied Jurisdiction

It is not only present for confessions, but also for the entire priestly ministry. There is no reason to limit it to confessions alone.

And, you are indeed aware that jurisdiction is sometimes necessary for a priest to validly administer the Sacraments. This is the case, first of all, for Confession. It is equally the case for a priest assisting at Marriage. If he does not have jurisdiction the marriage is null and void. Although the two spouses are the ministers of the Sacrament, the Church has added a supplementary condition for validity, that is to say that the matrimonial consent be exchanged before the official witness of the Church, which is normally the parish priest. It is quite obvious that our priests do not have this power in an ordinary way. They can only receive it in an extraordinary way by the Church’s supplying of jurisdiction. In fact we here depend on OC Canon 1098 § 1, which dispenses from the necessity of the presence of a priest having jurisdiction for the marriage to be valid when it is foreseen that such a priest cannot be found.

Normally jurisdiction is necessary for licitness, that is to say, in order that the act of the priest be licit, or, permissible. For example, to preach a priest must have a mandate, or, for a bishop to confirm in another diocese than his own, he must have a mandate from the diocesan bishop. In order to ordain priests a bishop must normally have jurisdiction and this is, of course, all the more so for the consecration of other bishops. For an episcopal consecration he must have a Pontifical mandate.

This same principle is supplied throughout. In an exceptional situation the Church supplies for this absence of jurisdiction on the part of the priest or even the bishop.

And the more serious the crisis is, the more necessary it will be to fall back on this supplying of the Church on a higher level. This is what happened on June 30, 1988, when Archbishop Lefebvre consecrated four bishops with Bishop de Castro Mayer as co-consecrator.

The Case of Necessity for the Traditional Faithful

The fact that heresy, and even apostasy, is widely spread amongst the clergy, leaves the faithful, and especially those who want to keep the faith and the true religion, as sheep scattered and without a pastor.

You can easily see, my dear friends, that it is the case of necessity amongst the faithful which is responsible for the fact that traditional priests and bishops have a supplied jurisdiction with respect to your needs. This is not only so that they may validly hear confessions and validly assist at marriages, but also for all of the acts of their priestly or episcopal ministry.

For confessions, you certainly remember that Archbishop Lefebvre invoked the principle of the "danger of spiritual death" of the faithful. Just see the unhappy faithful who have no priests of certain doctrine, and who sometimes even doubt the validity of their confessions: "Does this priest really have the necessary intention so as to validly absolve?" They can readily doubt this. "If I can no longer go to confession then I am exposed to fall and perhaps to fall into grave sins. Who knows? My eternal salvation is at risk, I am in danger of spiritual death." The Church supplies, for the Church places ipso facto (by the fact itself) this Catholic under the jurisdiction of a priest. The Church places this Catholic as a sheep of a priest who will be his pastor for a determined case. Thus is established between the faithful Catholic and his priest a relationship as the sheep or the lamb with respect to the shepherd. The only thing is that this relationship of authority does not come from a delegation from the hierarchy of the Church, but by the Church, the Mystical Body of Our Lord, herself supplying.

72 Virgins

There's not much funny about Islam, but this made Traddy crack a smile...

Supplied Jurisdiction

I received an email from a member of the faithful and was asked about the Society of Saint Pius X, and whether it is illicit to attend their chapels for Holy Mass.

I responded that the Vatican itself has said that one may satisfy their Sunday obligation by attending Mass with the Society but I also mentioned that their Confessions and Marriages may be invalid due to the local ordinary denying jurisdiction.

Then I got into what is known as "supplied jurisdiction". Since the Society operates due to a state of necessity in the Church, jurisdiction is supplied by the Church. "Ecclesia supplet", or "the Church supplies" (for the spiritual good of the faithful).
I supplied this article by Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais on the subject, and for the education of Catholics who may have the questions, I present the article here.

If anyone attends the local SSPX chapel in Pittston, please email me at

by Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais

by Father Peter Scott

State of the question.

Many have asked how traditional priests can continue to administer the Sacraments, and especially hear confessions, when they have had their Sacramental faculties removed by the local ordinary.

The following considerations will help you to understand not only the injustice of this, but also how these priests are clearly entitled to use supplied jurisdiction. It is obvious that the present crisis in the Church is not foreseen in Canon Law.

Consequently we must base our activity on the juridical analogy taken from the general norms of the Codes (Canon 20 in the Old Code and Canon 19 in the New Code), which state that if there is no express law concerning a special situation, the rule must be taken from:

1) laws promulgated for similar circumstances. The similar circumstances are those in which the Church supplies jurisdiction on account of the grave danger to souls. They are the cases of:

  • common error concerning a priest’s jurisdiction: Old Code [i.e., the 1917 Code of Canon Law, forthwith "OC"] Canon 209 (New Code [i.e., the 1983 Code of Canon Law, forthwith "NC"] 144).
  • positive and probable doubt: OC 209 (NC 144). This can be concerning jurisdiction or common error or danger of death.
  • non-cognizance to the fact that jurisdiction has expired: OC 207.
  • danger of death: OC 882 and 2252 (NC 976 and 1357). Those who cannot find a suitable confessor for a long period of time and who are consequently in danger of spiritual death must be assimilated to those in danger of death, according to the principle of Canonical Equity (see below).

2) the general principles of canon law, which inspire the particular laws. The two principal ones are:

  • the salvation of souls is the highest law (NC 1752).
  • the Sacraments are on account of men.

3) recourse equity. This is recourse to the mind of the legislator (when there is nothing explicit in writing), who never wants his legislation to be too onerous (burdensome), but always wants it to be interpreted in a just and favorable manner. That it is indeed the mind of the Church to be generous in the granting of jurisdiction and not overstrict or onerous is also apparent from the following two canons:

  • OC 2261 §2 (NC 1335). The Church suspends its prohibition for an excommunicated or suspended priest celebrating the Sacraments or posing acts requiring jurisdiction, provided it be in favor of the faithful who request it for any reasonable cause at all, and especially if there is no other minister.
  • OC 878 §2 (NC 970). Ordinaries and superiors are not to restrict jurisdiction. If the priest is suitable and the good of the faithful requires his services this jurisdiction cannot be refused to him. Clearly traditional priests should in justice receive personal jurisdiction and that everywhere (NC 967).

It is clear that, given the present circumstances of crisis in the Church and the principles of Canonical Equity, given the general principles of the law, and the Church’s continuous practice of supplying jurisdiction for the good of the faithful whenever it foresees that this lack of jurisdiction would be to their detriment, traditional priests receive supplied jurisdiction from the law. This is with the understanding that personal jurisdiction is unjustly refused to them simply because of their attachment to the Faith and its traditional expression (inseparable from the Faith), and that the faithful cannot be expected to continually search out and judge for themselves which confessors in the Conciliar Church might be acceptable and might give them the spiritual advice they need (given that the vast majority do not).

In conclusion, therefore, it is obvious that, besides the case of common error, besides the case of probable and positive danger of death as interpreted in the broad sense of spiritual death, traditional priests receive a iure (from the law itself) a supplied jurisdiction for all cases in which this jurisdiction is required. This is simply the application of Canon 20, notably of Canonical Equity. There are no solid arguments against this and since there is at least a positive and probable doubt in favor of this argument, and we know that in such a case the Church certainly supplies jurisdiction, then traditional priests can and must act accordingly and the faithful can and should approach them for Confession.

In the case of marriage this conclusion need not be applied. For OC 1098 (NC 1116) describes situations when even a priest without jurisdiction can validly assist at a Catholic marriage, namely when there is a major "inconvenience" for more than one month (as, for example, the New Mass or the liberal pre-Cana classes).

All depends on whether the crisis in the Church is recognized or not. Those who refuse to see it will refuse the recourse to OC Canon 20 (NC 19). Those who understand its gravity will all agree on the force of these canonical arguments for supplied jurisdiction presented by Bishop Tissier de Mallerais in the following pages.

More to come...

Do You Believe?

Do you?

Do you actually believe everything that Holy Mother Church teaches?

Do you believe that women should be priests?

The Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 1577 states that

Only a baptized man (vir) validly receives sacred ordination."66 The Lord Jesus chose men (viri) to form the college of the twelve apostles, and the apostles did the same when they chose collaborators to succeed them in their ministry.67 The college of bishops, with whom the priests are united in the priesthood, makes the college of the twelve an ever-present and ever-active reality until Christ's return. The Church recognizes herself to be bound by this choice made by the Lord himself. For this reason the ordination of women is not possible.

Now that you've read it yourself, do you still believe that women should be priests?

What do you do?

Do you accept the Church's teaching, or do you decide to ignore it and continue pretending to be Catholic?

Because, if you do not believe the Church's teaching, why be a part of her? I have always found it puzzling, how people can support abortion, how they can use birth control, or how they can denounce some teaching of the Church and still consider themselves Catholic. Why be a part of any organization with which you do not agree?

You wouldn't be a democrat of you believed in limited government and lower taxes, would you?

So why go to a church you do not agree with? What's the point? What are you trying to prove?

What if everyone went around espousing their own beliefs about what the Church should teach? Well, then you have Bob's Catholic Church. And Jane's Catholic Church. It is no longer the Catholic Church instituted by Jesus Christ. The Holy Catholic Church and the teaching she imparts are divinely inspired by the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

You think you know better than Him?

Good luck explaining that at your judgement!

Obama Re-writes Declaration of Independence.

Watch closely as Satan apparently takes over. When confronted with the teleprompter telling him to say "...we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights..." He begins to blink uncontrollably and his scowl betrays his hatred of the idea that our rights come to us from anyone other than the government.

This man has to be stopped. Vote conservative come November. Although we will have at least two more years under his yoke, at least a conservative victory will put a hold on any more of his destructive ideas.

Why Are Catholics Confused?

In 1986 French Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre wrote a splendid little book entitled An Open Letter To Confused Catholics in which he wrote about the disintegration of the Church since the Second Vatican Council. He was very outspoken about his disagreements over the decrees and changes that came out of that Council, and how they harmed Catholicism.

Keep in mind as you read his thoughts, that when he speaks of Catholics in the 80's who did not know their rights and obligations within the faith, that the changes in the Church were still just occurring. Imagine , if it was that bad then, with our diluted Catholicism, how much worse it must be today?

Who can deny that Catholics in the latter part of the twentieth century are confused? A glance at what has happened in the Church over the past twenty years is enough to convince anyone that this is a relatively recent phenomenon. Only a short time ago the path was clearly marked: either one followed it or one did not. One had the Faith--or perhaps had lost it--or had never had it. But he who had it--who had entered the Church through baptism, who had renewed his baptismal promises around the age of twelve and had received the Holy Ghost on the day of his confirmation--such a person knew what he had to believe and what he had to do.

Many today no longer know. They hear all sorts of astonishing statements in the churches, they read things contrary to what was always taught, and doubt has crept into their minds.

On June 30, 1968, at the close of the Year of Faith, His Holiness Pope Paul VI made a profession of the Catholic Faith, in the presence of all the bishops in Rome and hundreds of thousands of the faithful. In his introductory remarks, he put us on guard against attacks on Catholic doctrine which, he said, “give rise, as we regretfully see today, to trouble and confusion in many faithful souls.”

The same words crop up in an allocution of His Holiness Pope John Paul II on February 6, 1981: “Christians today, in large part, feel lost, perplexed, confused, and even deceived.” The Holy Father summarized the underlying causes of the trouble as follows:

“We see spread abroad ideas contrary to the truth which God has revealed and which the Church has always taught. Real heresies have appeared in dogma and moral theology, stirring doubt, confusion, rebellion. Even the liturgy has been harmed. Christians have been plunged into an intellectual and moral illuminism, a sociological Christianity, without clear dogma or objective morality.”

This confusion is seen everywhere--in conversations, in books, in newspapers, in radio and television broadcasts, in the behavior of Catholics, which shows up as a sharp decline in the practice of the faith as statistics reveal, a dissatisfaction with the Mass and the sacraments, a general relaxation of morals.

We naturally ask, therefore, what brought on this state of things? For every effect there is a cause. Has faith been weakened by a disappearance of generosity of soul, by a taste for enjoyment, an attraction to the pleasures of life and the manifold distractions which the modern world offers? These cannot be the real reasons, because they have always been with us in one way or another. The rapid decline in religious practice comes rather from the new spirit which has been introduced into the Church and which has cast suspicion over all past teachings and life of the Church. All this was based on the unchangeable faith of the Church, handed down by catechisms which were recognized by all bishops.

The faith was based on certitudes. The certitudes have been overturned and confusion has resulted. Let us take one example: the Church taught--and the faithful believed--that the Catholic religion was the one true religion. It was, in fact, established by God Himself, while other religions are the work of men. Consequently, the Christian must avoid all contact with false religions and, furthermore, do all he can to bring adherents of false religions to the religion of Christ.

Is this still true? Indeed it is! Truth cannot change--else it never was the truth. No new fact, no theological or scientific discovery--if there can be such a thing as a theological discovery--can ever make the Catholic religion any less the only means of salvation.

But now we have the Pope himself attending religious ceremonies in false religions, praying and preaching in the churches of heretical sects. Television conveys to the whole world pictures of these astonishing events. The faithful no longer understand.

Martin Luther--and I shall return to him later in these pages--cut entire nations off from the Church, pitched Europe into a spiritual and political turmoil which destroyed the Catholic hierarchy over wide areas, invented a false doctrine of salvation and a false doctrine of the sacraments. His revolt against the Church became the model for all revolutionaries after him who would throw Europe and the whole world into disorder. It is impossible to make Luther, as they want to do now after five hundred years, into a prophet or doctor of the Church, since he is not a saint.

If I read La Documentation Catholique1 or the diocesan papers, I find there, from the Joint Catholic-Lutheran Commission, officially recognized by the Vatican, statements like this:

“Among the ideas of the Second Vatican Council, we can see gathered together much of what Luther asked for, such as the following: description of the Church as ‘the people of God’ (a main idea of the new Canon Law--democratic, no longer hierarchic, idea); accent on the priesthood of all baptized; the right of the individual to freedom of religion. Other demands of Luther in his time can be considered as being met in the theology and practice of the Church today: use of the common language in the liturgy, possibility of Communion under two species, a renewal of the theology and celebration of the Eucharist.”

Quite a statement! Meeting the demands of Luther, who declared himself the resolute and mortal enemy of the Mass and of the pope! To gather together things requested by a blasphemer who said: “I declare that all brothels, murders, thefts, adulteries, are less evil than this abominable Mass!” From such an extravagant summary, we can draw only one conclusion: either we must condemn the Second Vatican Council which authorized it, or we must condemn the Council of Trent and all the popes who, since the sixteenth century, have declared Protestantism heretical and schismatic.

It is understandable that Catholics are confused by such a turn of events. But there are so many others! In a few years they have seen a transformation in the heart and substance of religious practices which adults have known from early childhood. In the churches, the altars have been demolished or replaced by tables, which are often portable and disappear when not in use. The tabernacle no longer occupies the place of honor: most of the time it is hidden, perhaps perched on a post, to one side. When it remains in the center, the priest turns his back to it during the Mass. Celebrant and faithful face each other and dialogue. Anyone may touch the sacred vessels, which are often replaced by breadbaskets, platters, ceramic bowls. Laity, including women, distribute Communion, which is received in the hand. The Body of Christ is treated with a lack of reverence which casts doubt on the truth of transubstantiation.

The Sacraments are administered in a manner which varies from place to place; I will cite as examples the age for baptism and confirmation, variations in the nuptial blessing, introduction of chants and readings which have nothing to do with the liturgy--but are borrowed from other religions or a purely secular literature, sometimes simply to express political ideas.

Latin, the universal language of the Church, and Gregorian Chant have generally disappeared. All the hymns have been replaced by modern songs in which it is not uncommon to find the same rhythms as in places of entertainment.

Catholics have been surprised also by the sudden disappearance of religious garb, as if priests and religious were ashamed of looking like what they are.

Parents who send their children to catechism discover that the truths of the Faith are no longer taught, even the most basic: the Holy Trinity, the mystery of the Incarnation, Original Sin, the Immaculate Conception. Hence the feeling of profound disorientation: is all of this no longer true, out-of-date, passé? Christian virtues are no longer even mentioned. Where can you find a catechism speaking of humility, chastity, mortification? The Faith has become a fluid concept, charity a kind of universal solidarity, and hope is, above all, hope for a better world.

Novelties like these are not the kind which, in the human situation, appear at a certain moment in time, so that we get accustomed to them and assimilate them after an initial period of surprise and uncertainty. In the course of a human life, ways of doing things change. If I were still a missionary in Africa, I would go there by plane and no longer by boat--if, indeed, you could find a steamship company still in operation. In this sense, we can say that one should live in one's own time; one is really forced to do so.

But those Catholics on whom they tried to impose novelties in the spiritual and supernatural order, on the same principle, realized it was not possible. You do not change the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Sacraments founded by Jesus Christ; you do not change the truth revealed once and for all; you do not replace one dogma with another. The pages which follow try to answer the questions you are asking yourselves, you who have known another face of the Church. I shall try also to enlighten the young people born after the Council and to whom the Catholic community does not offer what they have a right to expect from it. I would like to address myself, finally, to the unconcerned and the agnostics, whom the grace of God will touch some day or another, but who by then may find the churches without priests, and a teaching which does not correspond to the needs of their souls.

Then there is a question which, by all evidence, interests everyone, if I can judge by the attention it gets in the general press, especially in France. (The journalists are also showing some confusion.) A few headlines: “Is Christianity Dying?” “Will Time Work Against the Religion of Jesus Christ?” “Will There Still Be Priests in the Year 2000?” These questions I hope also to answer, not with any new theory of my own, but relying on unbroken Catholic Tradition--unbroken, yet so neglected in recent years that to many readers it will seem no doubt like something entirely new.

No Altar Girls!

I got this excellent news from over at the excellent Rorate Caeli

For a while now, a German Canonical Commentary on Summorum Pontificum by the German latinist and canon lawyer Fr. Gero P. Weishaupt has been available online. This commentary has now been published as a book, and the preface to this book was written by H.E. Archbishop Raimond L. Burke, Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura. The full text of the preface is available at the German website Summorum Pontificum. Here is an NLM translation of a passage of the preface which doubtlessly will raise great interest:

In the second chapter of his commentary, Weishaupt answers a number of practical issues that arise regarding the implementation of Summorum Pontificum and result from recent changes to the discipline of the celebration of the sacraments, such as e.g. those regarding female altar servers or lay people who perform the ministry of lectors or extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion. To answer these questions , the commentary correctly applies two general canonical principles.

The first principle requires that liturgical norms, which were in force in 1962, are to be diligently observed for the celebration of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, for these norms protect the integrity of the Roman rite as contained in the Missal of Blessed John XXIII. The second principle states that the subsequent liturgical discipline is only to be introduced in the Extraordinary Form, if this discipline affects a right of the faithful, which follows directly from the sacrament of baptism and serves the eternal salvation of their souls.

The application of these two principles to the cases mentioned leads to the conclusion that neither the service at the altar by persons of the female sex nor the exercise of the lay ministries of lector or extraordinary minister of Holy Communion belong to the basic rights of the baptized. Therefore, these recent developments, out of respect for the integrity of the liturgical discipline as contained in the Missale Romanum of 1962, are not to be introduced into the Extraordinary Form of the Roman rite. The commentary presents here in an impressive manner that the mutual enrichment of both forms of the Roman rite is only possible if discipline peculiar to each of the two forms is accordingly carefully observed.
That means no altar girls, no chyx with pyx, and no lectors need apply at celebrations of the Old Mass.

I betcha someone's pantsuits are gonna be in a bunch about this one...

It is a blessing to see some parts of the Church acknowledging our traditions.

Working Class Hero?

I always thought it was John Lennon.

But anyway, did you see the news stories about that male Jetblue stewardess? Steve Slater? Is that his name?

So now this guy is an "internet sensation" because he acted like a child and stormed off the plane? I suppose we are now to celebrate poor customer service and problem solving abilities?

This guy knows what he's dealing with, he gets paid to deal with it. It's his job.

How often have you gone into a store and complained about the lack of exceptional customer service? You walk into a store or restaurant today and what do you get? You find lethargic, unresponsive $6 an hour employees who don't care about you, your concerns, or the product or services they offer. Now this guy is going to turn into the hero to rally around for these lackluster service employees.

Brilliant. What do you think?


As Islam continues to spread its evil throughout the world and even here in the United States, new details are emerging about their practices, including the marriages of baby girls to fully grown men.

But not to worry, they use the Prophet Mohammad (may he burn in Hell) as their model. They don't usually have sex with them until they are nine years old.

A Chicken In Every Pot

And the Latin Mass in every parish!

Pope wants traditional Masses in every parish, says Vatican cardinal
Anna Arco
20 June 2008

The Pope wants the traditional Latin Mass offered in every Catholic parish in the world, a Vatican cardinal has said.

Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos also told journalists in London that seminarians everywhere should be trained to say Mass in the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite, also called the Tridentine rite.

Cardinal Castrillon made the comments last Saturday, shortly before he became the first cardinal to celebrate the older High Mass in Westminster Cathedral for 39 years.

When asked by The Catholic Herald if the Pope wanted to see many ordinary parishes making provision for the traditional form, the cardinal said: "All the parishes. Not many - all the parishes, because this is a gift of God. He [the Pope] offers these riches, and it is very important for new generations to know the past of the Church. This kind of worship is so noble, so beautiful - the deepest theologians' way to express our faith.

So it is over two years now since the Popes wishes have been made public. How about it Bishop Bambera? You want to be the first to take the bold step and fulfill Pope Benedict's wishes?

Maybe you can start by increasing the availability of the Mass throughout the Diocese.

Not everyone can get to Scranton. Or Hazleton. Or Shohola.

We are truly blessed in this Diocese to have the Old Mass at all, and those in attendance know that. We thank God everyday. But now it is not enough for us to simply have access to it. Now is the time that the Mass be made available to EVERYONE. Not just the Traditionalists in the pews. Summorum Pontificum was not just an attempt to sway trads away from the SSPX or to shut them up, it was attempt to revitalize the Church.

Pray for Bishop Bambera that God will open his eyes, that he will see the beauty of this Mass of all times. This is the Mass that Saint Pio prayed everyday. This is the Mass Saint Therese attended everyday. This is the Mass responsible for a large portion of the Saints we honor today.

Pray that Bishop Bambera will provide for his flock as he is ordered to by Almighty God. The Old Mass is coming back throughout the church, and this Pope is at the head of the Renaissance within Her. Don't be a hindrance, your Excellence.

Open the door and welcome the Pope and the Old Mass.

Don't be a dissenter and slam the door in his and God's face.

Happy Tuesday!

The Spanish Inquisition is the best Monty Python sketch ever. And the Dead Parrot.

I meant the best TWO! The Spanish Inquisition and the Dead Parrot and the Cheese Shop are the best Monty Python skecthes in all Christendom. I mean the THREE best Monty Python sketches ever. And the Hungarian -English Phrasebook.

FOUR! The Four best Monty Python sketches ever were the Spanish Inquisition, The Dead Parrot, the Cheese Shop, and the Hungarian - English Phrasebook...

Ah, no. Let me come in again!

Weapons Of MASS Destruction

I Love This Truck

Are You An Infidel?

"The mission of infidels is not to build up anything, but to pull down churches, civil laws, governments, morals, the characters of men and women, peace, happiness, protection of home, property, and life. They come with a mission of denials of the truths contained in the Bible-a mission of war upon the Bible, religion, and the friends of purity and mercy. They come not with a mission of peace and good will to man, but a mission of hatred towards the Bible and all it enjoins- a mission to pull down and destroy- to spread desolation among other mens labors and lay their work in ruins, leaving nothing but wrecks and devastation. The mission of infidels is not to enlighten, civilize and ennoble nations. They have never enlightened, civilized or elevated a nation or a people since the world was made. They have established no civil institutions, no system of morals, no code of laws... "

Benjamin Franklin - The Mission Of Infidels.

Sound familiar Progressives? They knew what you were then, and we know what you are now.

More on Prop 8

During another reading of Judge Walker's decision, I see where the Judge wrote this:“California’s obligation is to treat its citizens equally, not to mandate its own moral code.”

That is quite a presumption by Walker. Is it not ironic that the very “moral code” that gave us the idea of equality in the first place (as laid out in the Declaration of Independence) is the same moral code that the judge throws out in order to justify same sex “marriage?”

If California is mandating its own moral code by saying marriage is by definition heterosexual, then isn't the judge mandating his own moral code by saying it isn’t? The line provided above by the judge clearly shows us the judge’s critical thinking ability, but it does nothing to clear up how proposition 8 violates the constitution.

Do not forget that the government derives it's just powers from the consent of the governed. The people of California have made clear in many ways that they do not consent to the redefinition of marriage. After months of vigorous debate and campaign the matter was decided by the people - as our Constitution allows - and then their decision and their rights were trampled.

State after state - 45 in all - have decided to reaffirm the meaning of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

None of that matters to progressives who continue to legislate from the bench to force the majority into following the will of the minority.


Can't we get along even if we disagree?

It would seem I have touched a nerve.

It would seem that there are those who vehemently disagree with my position on gay, unnatural sex acts.

I’m not going to waste my time or anyone else’s quoting what the Bible says regarding homosexuality. It has been done time and again by better people than I to no avail. There will always be those who have been so blinded by the great deceiver that they take any attempt at showing them the truth and turn it into “hate”, as I’ve already seen in recent comments that I am debating posting.

Christian thought will always (and always should) be permitted to influence a country founded on Christian principles. Likewise, it should influence us as we think and live our personal lives, lest we fall into sin ourselves. The Catechism of the Catholic Church clearly teaches that although “…sin is a personal act, we have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them”. (CCC #1868)

How do we cooperate in sin? Let's use some of the progressive's favorite sins to illustrate:

1. By counsel. i.e., "I think you should have an abortion; go ahead and have the abortion. It will help preserve your lifestyle."

2. By command. i.e., Telling your child, your friend, or your co-worker, "Have an abortion, you may lose your job if you don't."

3. By consent. i.e., "If you and your partner feel it's the best thing, go ahead and have a sexual relationship, get married. Even if you're both of the same sex. It's nobody's business."

4. By provocation. i.e., "Live together! Aren't you in charge of your own life? The Pope is old and out of touch, who cares what he says!”

5. By praise or flattery. i.e., "Oh, Senator, you are so courageous and kind in defending a woman's `right' to an abortion."

6. By concealment. i.e., The pastor allows the senator, judge, president, etc. who has voted for, or otherwise promoted, abortion, euthanasia, human cloning, same-sex marriage, etc. to appear to be in good standing, when, in fact, they have caused grave public scandal by their actions. When the sin is public, the redress must be public. Although, I don't disagree with the courageous bishops who would deny such persons Communion, I do believe that the "confrontation" should take place, without question, long before they arrive at the altar rail.

7. By participation. i.e., "I'll drive you to the clinic. You need that abortion to be able to continue your lifestyle."

8. By silence. i.e., You refuse to speak out against what is a clear violation of human rights, an incredible persecution and prejudice against a class of human beings (the unborn). You hide behind the Supreme Court's unjust and inherently illicit decision on abortion, saying it's the law of the land, when in fact it is the subversion and perversion of authentic law. The Nazi SS officers tried for war crimes used a similar defense, saying they were only following orders. They hung them, guilty as charged!

9. By defense of the evil. i.e., "It prevents child abuse by eliminating unwanted children; Women are more in charge of their lives, more liberated; it's so much more sophisticated and educated a thing to do., "etc. etc.

America has gone from a wholesome, rational, and moral country to one that is decadent, irrational and immoral. And there are those who call it progress.

I call it evil.

Evil is progressing.

Whether it is the scourge of abortion, the depravity of the gay lifestyle or the anti-religion of Islam, I will stand against it.

I will not defend it.

If you’re looking for a gay buddy to hold your hand and tell you how great your perverted lifestyle is go somewhere else.

You must have my blog confused with the National Catholic Reporter.

Are You Surprised?

I'm not.

A gay activist judge has struck down the California gay marriage ban.

Pervfest should be even more jubilant than usual this Sunday.

Why is it that when a question is put to the people, and they overwhelmingly go one way or another, does it always end up being legislated in the court system?

Apparently the votes of Californians don't matter in their own state of California.

Just wait til this ends up in the Supreme Court. This'll be one for the history books.

Just think on this: Obama has had two appointments in roughly two years in office. Pray to God no conservatives leave the court before we can throw der Fuhrer out on his ass in 2012.

That would be a catastrophe.

Wednesday, August 4, 2010


This Sunday will not be a normal Sunday at Kirby Park, a place where your children can go and swing on the swings and slide down the slides. I was just informed that this Sunday August 8, the NEPA PRIDEFEST will be had at Kirby Park from 12 noon to 6pm. Keep your families at home, true believers.

Last year I blogged on the indulgent, sex-themed fest from last year.

Alas, my family and I will be far away on a lovely beach this weekend. I'll have to pass.

Hopefully the gays will not typographically assault any Christians, as recently happened in the Twin Cities when Brian Johnson roamed through the depraved "Pridefest" going on there, handing out free Bibles. He has handed a note which read,

"You're a lying, hateful bigot, your religion is a disgusting lie, your non-existent deity is a sad fantasy for frightened cavemen and you're a parasite on society. Someday perhaps you'll wake up and discover what gay pride, and what freedom really are."
Read the story here.

I know Christians will be out there at our local Pervfest, doing God's work as well, and God bless you for it.

Photos from this years PERVFEST will be especially coveted from my dear readers. If you are brave enough to venture to Kirby Park, please take photos and pass them on to me for publication here.

What Happened To Booker1441?

And while we're on the subject of pervert priests, whatever happened with Robert Timchak?

He's been on leave for quite a while now.

He was charged with 16 counts of sexual abuse of a minor, 1 count sexual abuse of a minor, 1 count criminal use of communication facility, and with 1 count tampering with/or fabricating physical evidence.

Where is he?

Where's the rest of the story?

We're waiting Bishop Bambera.


Did y'all see this from the Diocese web-site?

The Diocese of Scranton has received a report from an individual that the late Father James M. McAuliffe was sexually abusive to young people.

In late June, a classified advertisement published in a local newspaper asked altar boys and students from Holy Saviour Parish, Wilkes-Barre, to call a telephone number if they wanted to talk about Father McAuliffe, who served as assistant pastor in the parish between September 18, 1954 and April 3, 1963. Diocesan personnel contacted the individual who placed the classified ad. This person reported that Father McAuliffe was sexually abusive to young people. Father McAuliffe died on August 7, 1989, so it is not possible to question him about his behavior with the individual making the claim or with any other child.

Nevertheless, the Diocese of Scranton is eager to assist any person who has been the victim of sexual abuse by a member of the clergy. If there is anyone claiming to have been abused by Father McAuliffe or any priest, he or she should come forward and make it known. Such abuse should be reported to the Diocese by calling the Victim Assistance Coordinator, Joan L. Holmes, (570-344-5216), or the Chancellor, James B. Earley, (570-207-2216) or the Vicar for Clergy, Father Thomas M. Muldowney, (570-207-2269).

The Diocese has requested that a bulletin announcement be printed and circulated in the parishes where Father McAuliffe served: St. Ann, Tobyhanna, 1942 and 1954; St. Thomas, Archbald, 1942-1945; Our Lady of the Snows, Clarks Summit, 1945; St. Mary, Help of Christians, Pittston, 1945-1947; St. Paul, Scranton, 1947-1953; St. Therese, Shavertown, 1953; Holy Saviour, Wilkes-Barre, 1954-1963; Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Dickson City (St. Thomas, Dickson City), 1966-1969; St. Joseph, Forest City (St. James, Pleasant Mount), 1969-1973; St. Patrick, Scranton (St. David, Scranton), 1973-1989.

The Diocese has notified law enforcement officials in the counties where Father McAuliffe served about the classified ad, the claim made against Father McAuliffe and the Diocese’s efforts to locate victims.

The Catholic Church is eager to assist those who have been hurt by sexual abuse.
I wonder if the Diocese is so pro-active if the priest in question were still alive?

Why Are Bishops So Set Against The Old Mass?

Did Francis Xavier Practice Zen Meditation?

What the...?

Well, I admit my first reaction to seeing the bulletin from St. Francis Xavier parish in NYC was a bit harsher than that.

A reader sent me the link to their bulletin which had information about several of their groups at the parish.

Upon studying the bulletin, I soon learned that the groups one would normally expect to find listed in the bulletin of a Catholic church were nowhere to be found. There were no sign ups for Eucharistic Adoration. Sadly missing was the listing for the Altar and Rosary Society. And for the life of me I couldn't locate anything about the Knights of Columbus.

But bless their bleeding progressive hearts, I did learn that there would be no meeting of the Gay Catholic Group until September. The Peace and Justice Committee meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month and the Spirituality Committee meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month, in case you wanted to go. And the Catholic Lesbians meet in the West Room on the 2nd Friday of the month.

And don't forget the Zen Meditation group is looking for members every Monday at 7pm.

The Church is in a dare I say it, heretical state in some mainstream parishes. Pray and do penance.

Kudos To Father Burke!

I have been informed that this past Sunday a person attempted to disrupt the celebration of the Old Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes in Philadelphia.

An eye witness tells me a man attending the TLM went up to the Communion rail and instead of accepting the Host on the tongue as is the norm (and the rubrically correct way) he put his hands into the "receiving position" and ignored Father Burke's attempts to offer Communion. Father Burke then moved on to the next communicant.

This fellow got up and followed Father Burke shoving his hands over the heads of the kneeling communicants at Father Burke, who cooly ignored the man and continued to distribute to those properly disposed communicants.

The Novus Ordo plant then gave up and marched out of the church.

The man in question obviously had a point of some sort to make, but Father Burke was quick to protect our Lord from defilement. And make no mistake, the priest did not deny the man communion, the man rejected communion according to the traditional norms.

But I am certain good ole' Cardinal Rigali will not approve of this.

Everyday Muslim Happenings Update

Remember a little while back when the Muslim driver of Bishop Luigi Padovese brutally murdered him in cold blood and beheaded him while shouting "Allah Ackbar!"?

Well, as we should all know by now, that is what Muslims do in the name of their cult.

And they are showing no signs of stopping.

Here's a short update of the most recent murders in the name of Allah.

And more and more often, the targets are Christians. Go figure.

When they aren't complaining about 'Islamophobia', our Muslim friends busy themselves killing anyone they can find who disagree with them. Two weeks ago a young family was beaten to death by an Islamic mob in Pakistan.

Last week, a Pentecostal pastor was shot in the head in Russia.

At least ten Christian children were hacked to death and churches were burned to the ground over the weekend in Nigeria.

And this past Monday in Pakistan, two Christian brothers, (one a Christian pastor) who were to face charges of blasphemy in a court were shot dead while chained outside the halls of justice.

They aren't violent animals, they are expressing their religious freedoms, right?

Appeal To Heaven!

I've said this before and no doubt I'll say it many more times: America had better wake up.

Muslims are slowly gaining their foothold in America, and if we don't wise up and stop these murdering, false-prophet following heretics, the Islamatization of our country is not far off.

As a child I remember watching Walter Cronkite and watching footage of the Iran/Iraq war, the hostage crisis, and the USSR battling Afghanistan, and many other Middle Eastern wars and bombings and murders. I remember when Anwar Sadat was murdered while watching a parade, and I wondered what was wrong with "those people".

Now, "those people" are here and it won't be long until all the violence and all the heartache will be happening right here in America.

Will we wake up in time?

I doubt it. America is full of lefty leaning politically correct souls who have accepted the media hype about the "religion of peace".

I fear it won't be until muslims start blowing themselves up at our little league games and malls and county fairs that will we understand. But then it will be too late.

Here's a great video by Pat Condell about the latest Muslim atrocity at Ground Zero. Will we stop them from building an Islamic Victory Center and Mosque 600 feet from the cemetery of the World Trade Center?

Probably not.
