Allah Ackbar!

Harsh description of violence alert!

That's what Muslims shout right before, during, and after the execution of an unbeliever. These unbelievers are almost always beheaded. With a knife.

They just pull your head back, jab the knife into your neck and carve away. I have seen beheadings on the internet that took 2 minutes, with the victim still alive through most of it. One video shows they had a 12 year old boy do the beheading. The victim endured the boy hacking and swinging wildly at his neck because he did not have the strength to do it properly.

Islam, the religion of peace.

You all remember reading about Bishop Luigi Padovese who was "stabbed to death" in Turkey a few weeks ago?

And you all remember how the media went out of their way to say this was just a random killing?

According to Cath Asia News, new details have emerged on the dynamics and motives concerning the killing of Turkish Bishop Luigi Padovese.

The doctors who performed the autopsy reveal that Mgr. Padovese had knife wounds all over his body, but especially in the heart (at least 8), Asia News reports.

His head was almost completely detached from his neck, attached to his body by only the skin of the back of the neck.

Even the dynamics of the killing is clearer: the Bishop was stabbed in his house. He had the strength to go out the door of the house, bleeding and crying for help and there he was killed. Perhaps only when he fell to the ground, was his head cut off.

Witnesses said they heard the bishop cry out for help. They also heard the screams of the alleged killer immediately after the murder. According to these sources, he climbed on the roof of the house shouted: “I killed the great Satan! Allah Akbar! “.

This call coincides perfectly with the idea of beheading, making sense that it is like a ritual sacrifice against evil. This correlates with the murders of ultranationalist groups and Islamic fundamentalists who apparently want to eliminate Christians from Turkey.

Moreover, according to a Turkish newspaper, Milliyet on June 4, the murderer had told police that he his actions were the result of a “divine revelation.”


Pizza Communion?

So, tell me what you think about this Hyundai commercial. I think they are mocking the Church and our traditions. Pay close attention to the Pizza "communion". I'd like to see our spineless American Bishops say something about it. But they are, you know, spineless.

C'mon new Bishop Bambera. You haven't done too much lately. You aren't just going to sit in your big house on the Ave are you? You are going to defend the Church when issues like this arise, right?

Who Dat?

So, does anyone know anything about this woman Kathleen Hanlon? She is the new superintendent of schools for the Diocese.

The Citizens Voice reported "Hanlon is a former diocese teacher and principal. From 2003 to 2007, she was assistant superintendent for secondary education and principal of Allentown Central Catholic High School in the Diocese of Allentown. For the past three years, she has been serving as a system director for the diocese."

What a system director?

What was she doing before 2003?
