syria-apotheosis-of-barbarism

 

 

Is the U.S. going to war with Syria?  If we do war is very ugly.  Should we be going to war and bombing a country when there are no good guys fighting?  There are the rebels on one hand and Assad’s military on the other hand. The choice is between people who are very, very bad and people who are horrible.  Should we be getting mixed up in a Syrian civil war?  Is it really America’s business to get involved?

I don’t think we have any business going to war in Syria.  As much as I am concerned for the welfare of the innocents who aren’t fighting and simply want peace I don’t think the United States government has any standing to get involved in a Syrian civil war.  But Syria is the gateway for Iran attacking Israel.  So maybe limited strikes is the best of bad options in fighting Syria to aid Israel in her defense?  I do think the Catholic Church as well as other churches and Christian missions should get involved.  There has to be a variety of ways that churches and organizations can help Christians and others in Syria who are being persecuted, threatened, and harmed,

Now onto the one good item. Pope Francis has called for a day of prayer and fasting for peace on September 7.

“I appeal strongly for peace, an appeal which arises from the deep within me,” he said to the crowds in St. Peter’s Square on Sept. 1.

“There are so many conflicts in this world which cause me great suffering and worry, but in these days my heart is deeply wounded in particular by what is happening in Syria and anguished by the dramatic developments which are looming,” continued the Pope.

“For this reason, brothers and sisters, I have decided to call for a vigil for the whole Church,” he announced.

It will be “a day of fasting and prayer for peace in Syria, in the Middle East, and throughout world.”

The vigil will take place on Sept. 7, the vigil of the birth of Mary, Queen of Peace. Those who can will gather in St. Peter’s Square from 7 p.m. until midnight: other local Churches are requested to join in the fasting and prayer by gathering together.

Prayer is the answer.  God is the answer.  Let us all take time out of our busy schedules on September 7 to pray for peace in Syria and around the globe.  God Bless.

Glenn Beck claims that we are fighting evil in the United States. Evil of Islamofascism.  Evil of Communists.  Evil of Socialism.  Evil of immorality. Evil of tyranny. Evil of chaos.  Evil of Obamacare. There is definitely evil within Obamacare.  The HHS mandate is one element that is evil. That garbage needs to be repealed or defunded.  He says that we aren’t fighting either the Democrats or President Obama, but in fact we are fighting evil forces.  I’m sure this can be applicable to Canada and a number of other nations.  Do you think that we are fighting evil?  I do.  May we all wear the armor of God as we fight against Satan and all his evil works.  God Bless.

Ephesians 6: 10-18

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God,so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

It wasn’t reported until recently, but about a month ago Muslims attacked Christians at St. Mark Cathedral in Egypt after a funeral Mass.  How dare Muslims show such utter disrespect during a most Holy occasion as a funeral Mass. The persecution and slaying of Christians breaks my heart.  The worldwide Islamization and the intolerance, persecution, and killing of people who believe in other faiths by Muslims has got to stop.  And Western governments thought Mubarek was bad?  Now there is a president in Egypt, Morsi, who is apart of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The attacks have progressively gotten worse. The U.S. government needs to stop giving Egypt aid of any kind, especially money.  The West should not have messed in the internal affairs of Egypt’s government because now we have a much bigger mess on our hands.  My prayers go out to all the Christians’ safety as they struggle while living in a hostile environment.

ChristianPost:

Coptic Christians attending a funeral service Sunday for four Copts killed two days earlier in an anti-Christian rampage were in turn attacked themselves by at least 200 Muslim rioters.

The incident, which started with a few dozen men pelting the mourners with stones, quickly escalated into a massive attack against Christians at St. Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in the Abbassia area of Cairo involving firearms, flash-bang grenades, tear gas, fire bombs and other improvised weapons, besides cars set ablaze.

A Morning Star News reporter observed that police took more than an hour to respond, and when they arrived, they did nothing to stop the attack. Instead, most stood and watched men throw rocks at the Christians gathered at the gates of the cathedral compound or hurl stones over walls at the Christians trapped inside.

 

From the Catholic Herald:

Hundreds of Egyptian Christians were besieged inside Cairo’s Coptic cathedral last night after a mob, reportedly with the help of security forces, launched an attack on worshippers.

One person died and 84 were injured during the attack, which began after a funeral mass for five Copts who were killed in sectarian violence on Saturday, in which a Muslim man also died.

Wael Eskandar, an Egyptian blogger at the funeral, said he saw people being showered with broken bottles from the roof of a block of flats. After being attacked, he said, the people “started racing out of the side street and destroying the nearby cars”.

 

Here is another video which shows Christians being attacked as police stand by.

To be honest I am feeling quite sad but I am not going to let my feelings get me down. Here is some of what’s been in the news recently.  Yeah, I know its kinda weird but politics and news brings some cheer to me.

More doctors prefer Romney over Obama. In the survey that was administered it said that 15% of those doctors surveyed are switching their votes from Obama in 08′ to Romney in November. The major factor is Obamacare and the present administration refusing to take tort reform head on.

High school kids are protesting the new “one-size-fits-all approach to dining” in school cafeterias. More high school kids revolt over new federal lunch regulations. 

I can understand preparing healthier food for school students but reducing the portions seems nonsensical IMO. I doubt the portions were that big to begin with.

A Philadelphia teacher compared a girl’s Romney/Ryan T-shirt to KKK attire and kicked her out of the classroom for wearing that shirt. That is utterly ridiculous! Disagree with her but don’t violate her freedom of speech. And don’t punish her for expressing her views which fall under the right to free speech.  http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/04/high-schooler-kicked-out-of-class-for-wearing-romney-shirt/  

Apparently a new anti-fracking film that Matt Damon stars in, which will be released in theaters in December, is funded by an Arab oil-rich nation. The movie is funded by United Arab Emirates.

From the Daily Caller: 

A new film starring Matt Damon presents American oil and natural gas producers as money-grubbing villains purportedly poisoning rural American towns. It is therefore of particular note that it is financed in part by the royal family of the oil-rich United Arab Emirates.

The creators of Promised Land have gone to absurd lengths to vilify oil and gas companies, as Scribe’s Michael Sandoval noted Wednesday. Since recent events have demonstrated the relative environmental soundness of hydraulic fracturing – a technique for extracting oil and gas from shale formations – Promised Land’s script has been altered to make doom-saying environmentalists the tools of oil companies attempting to discredit legitimate “fracking” concerns.

While left-leaning Hollywood often targets supposed environmental evildoers, Promised Landwas also produced “in association with” Image Media Abu Dhabi, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Media, according to the preview’s list of credits. A spokesperson with DDA Public Relations, which runs PR for Participant Media, the company that developed the film fund backingPromised Land, confirmed that AD Media is a financier. The company is wholly owned by the government of the UAE.

So for some reason Matt Damon is against American oil and natural gas producers but is okay with Arab nations making bookoo bucks off of oil production. That makes no sense.

Pope Benedict XVI is getting ready to install two new doctors to the Church – St. John of Avila and St. Hildegard of Bingen. Awesome!!

Islamists murder Christians in Nigeria. 

More than nine months after Boko Haram, an Islamist terror organization in Nigeria, demanded that Christians immediately vacate the northern states of that African nation, Christians are continuing to be murdered while the government struggles to wage a campaign against the destabilizing guerrilla forces.

The most recent attack perpetrated by members of Boko Haram took place in the northern city of Bauchi, when a car bomb was detonated by its driver at the gates of St. John’s Church. For years, Boko Haram — a name which means “Western education is sinful” in the Hausa language — has waged a campaign of terror against the people of Nigeria in an effort to impose sharia law and to divide the nation between Islamic and Christian territories. As reported previously for The New American, the leadership of Boko Haram demanded in January of this year that all Christians immediately flee the northern states of Nigeria, which the Islamist organization believes should be inhabited only by Muslims. The demand came in the aftermath of Christmas Day bombings which killed dozens of people and left almost 100 wounded.

The September 23 attack on St. John’s Catholic Church was initially reported to have killed two people and wounded nearly 50 others; these figures were later adjusted to report four fatalities — not including the terrorist — with 48 wounded. The attack was the second such anti-Christian assault in Bauchi in one week.

Please everyone let us keep Christians in Nigeria and Christians being persecuted and experiencing violence in our prayers. May God please keep Christians safe. Let us pray:

The Light of God

The light of God surrounds us,
The love of God enfolds us,
The power of God protects us,
The presence of God watches over us,
Wherever we are, God is,
And where God is, all is well.

St. Matthew, St. Mark, St. Luke, St. John,
Like unto the prophet Jonas, as a type of Christ,
Who was guarded for three days and
Three nights in the belly of a whale,
Thus shall the Almighty God,
As a Father, guard and protect me from all evil.

Grant me Protection

Grant, O Lord, Thy protection
And in protection, strength
And in strength, understanding
And in understanding, knowledge
And in knowledge, the knowledge of justice
And in the knowledge of justice, the love of it
And in the love of it, the love of all existences
And in that love, the love of spirit and all creation.

God Bless.

Don’t citizens as well as elected government officials have a right to know the backgrounds and associations (questionable or not) of unelected (appointed) government officials?

Well, by the way some people have reacted to Michele Bachmann’s questioning and examination of the State Department’s deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin’s background, beliefs, and associations one would think that the congresswoman had committed some horrible crime.

Oh yeah, that’s right, according to RINOS such as McCain, progressives, Democrats, and others who just want to get along for fear of offending others while continuing to have their heads in the sand she committed the ultimate faux pas in politics – Bachmann challenged the status quo and chose not to be politically correct at a time when political correctness is considered to be sacrosanct. She chose to put the security of our country over political correctness.

Do you think that it is legitimate to question any person’s political philosophy? If so, what is so wrong with questioning a person’s religious beliefs when that religion brings political implications along with it? Such as if the person’s beliefs are incompatible with our form of government and our constitution? If you think it is legitimate to question President Obama’s Communist ties why would you be opposed to someone investigating Huma’s family ties to Muslim Brotherhood organizations and/or operatives? Is it for fear of being labeled ‘Islamaphobic’? When the Muslim Brotherhood follows the same methods and philosophies as other organizations that are declared terrorist organizations? There are certain religious precepts within Islam that are incompatible with our constitution so finding out whether or not Huma holds beliefs which are in opposition to our Constitution is a very important thing to know. If Huma’s beliefs are not aligned with that of her mothers that is great but if she does hold the same beliefs as her mother, ascribing to beliefs associated with radical Islam, doesn’t the American people have the right to know?

I know some of you are probably asking “but what about freedom of religion?” If that religion is not tolerant of other religions, does not believe in religious liberty, but believes in global dominance and death to anyone that insults that religion and is unwilling to coexist with people who practice other religions or those who don’t believe in any religion or even those who don’t believe in God’s existence, and wants to dismantle our constitution in order to replace it with Sharia – Islamic law – then as citizens of the United States we are called to oppose this type of philosophy which threatens the very existence of the United States of America. I am highly confident that the majority of Muslims who reside in the U.S. are peaceful, have been westernized to some extent, and are able to follow both their Muslim faith and the Constitution without seeing the two as being in conflict with one another.

 

This is one example of what Bachmann and the other signees wrote that the squishies and progressives have found so offensive is this:

“The [State] Department’s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, has three family members – her late father, her mother and her brother – connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations. Her position affords her routine access to the secretary and to policy making.”

Now the Congresswoman has been criticized viciously by dhimmis who want to think that Islam is a religion of peace. I am not saying that all Muslims are violent but if you really think that a strict adherence to Islam is peaceful I would love to know what hole you’ve been hiding in the last 20 years or so. Strict adherence equals jihad. This is how Bachmann responded to Boehner and his ilk:

“Not once in the letter to the inspector general of the Department of State, as you summarize, was it stated that by extension (Ms. Abedin) may be working on the organization’s behalf. That her family members are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood has been reported and referenced widely in the Arab-language media, including Al-Hayat, The Arab Times and Al-Jazeera.”

Mychal Massie makes a good point:

If McCain and Boehner have such concern about not painting everyone with the same brush, why do they sit silently as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and extreme racist bigots like Jehmu Greene publicly attack whites with racial pejoratives? If they care about justice and fairness, why have they not demanded Eric Holder and Obama’s Justice Department prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation and for deaths threats made against George Zimmerman?

More from Mychal:

July 20 I received a lengthy letter from a professional person who had called McCain’s office to protest his condemnation of Bachmann. The person who wrote me requested I not use his name. He spoke to a McCain staff person named Will (who refused to give his last name) at approximately 3:52 p.m. Eastern at 202-224-2235. Following is part of that letter shared with the author’s permission – the person wrote:

“I called chastising McCain for his comments chastising Michele Bachmann and four other [members of Congress]. I said we are in dire times and that we don’t need attacks like this within the party. The person on the phone commented that Bachmann’s attack on Huma transcended politics and that she did not have evidence to smear Huma’s name in front of the whole world. The man said there was no evidence supporting what Bachmann wrote about. I said Bachmann only asked questions. He said she didn’t have enough facts to ask those questions and that she defamed Huma’s name in front of the whole world. I said Bachmann didn’t smear Huma’s name, that she wrote the letters to government offices, not to newspapers. I said whoever released those letters and then made it a public issue are to blame.

“The man … said no, the person who wrote the letter is to blame for thinking such things. I said she wrote the letter as internal documents to other government agencies, and he said if she didn’t want everyone to read them she shouldn’t have written them. … This man blames Bachmann for asking question; he says Bachmann asked pointed questions about Huma and that as a congresswoman she shouldn’t have. … I mentioned Humas mother and father; he said … everything Bachmann asks about were unfounded. He said they were only directed at Huma because she was Muslim. He asked, should we look suspect at all Christians due to Timothy McVeigh being a Christian? I replied that Timothy McVeigh was not a Christian. The man argues that he was. … I say next you are going to tell me that Hitler was a Christian, and the man replies, ‘He was.’ I said, Hitler was not a Christian – and he replies, ‘Yes, he was sir.’”

There you have it. McCain’s office believes Hitler was a Christian … and we wonder why and how the Republican Party has become what it is.

Timothy McVeigh grew up as a Catholic. Then he wandered into the darkness and became either an agnostic or atheist, and he was either an agnostic or an atheist at the time of the Oklahoma City bombing.

So according to a McCain staffer we as persons are not allowed to think certain things, or to question anything even if something smells rotten in Denmark? How Orwellian of him. Geesh. Yet another reason that both McCain and Boehner need to be voted out of office. More people adhering to the “see no evil hear no evil” way of life. Please people wake up before our whole country turns intoDearbornistan (watch here).

In the video Dr. Scott Hahn explains the historical roots of Islam and Christianity and how they both are traced back to Abraham.

John 8:31-44
Dispute Over Whose Children Jesus’ Opponents Are

31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”

34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for my word. 38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father.[a]”

39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered.

“If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would[b] do what Abraham did. 40 As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. 41 You are doing the works of your own father.”

“We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.”

42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
I do find it quite interesting that the phrase “Only begotten son” is used in both the Old Testament and New Testament.  God is saying that He is the Father of all nations, the father of everyone.  God’s only begotten son is without sin. God sent Jesus his only son for our salvation. Abraham was a faithful servant of God while Jesus explained to the Jewish people that they are not followers of God since they want to kill Jesus, who was sent by God.  True descendents of God would follow Jesus’ teaching will give the grace of faith for them to be able to know the truth, and then to be set free by the truth. 

Genesis 22:2
Douay-Rheims Bible
He said to him: Take thy only begotten son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and go into the land of vision: and there thou shalt offer him for a holocaust upon one of the mountains which I will show thee.

John 3:16
Douay-Rheims Bible
For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting.
