Lifesitenews alerted its readers to a disgusting Facebook page entitled, 'The Virgin Mary Should've Aborted' and the fact that despite originally removing the page, due to complaints, it has been reinstated. I don't know how Catholics should respond to this kind of horror. Ranting and raving is, presumably, what they want. A few things become clear though and they are quite disturbing.
First, such a page - and such stuff is hardly new - is explicitly anti-Christ. We keep on getting told how we should 'dialogue, dialogue, dialogue' with people but a dialogue with contributers to this page will just inspire them to type expletives at you and call you names. I'm not complaining - it is to be expected. There is no point walking into a lions' den and then complaining that there are some lions there.
Secondly, the page makes clear the spiritual and moral link between Our Lady, her Son and the Culture of Death which finds its greatest intensity in abortion - the direct killing of innocent, nascent human life. This is the battlefield in a nutshell. Slandering Our Lady, pouring scorn on Jesus and His Mother and encouraging abortion - praising it - are key areas on which the Devil and his agents are very active and very successful.
Thirdly, why is Our Lady called 'Virgin Mary' when the page's contributors do not believe in her perpetual virginity? That seems odd, yet even these reprobates cannot simply call this figure, 'Mary'.
Fourthly, Facebook clearly refuse to act forcefully to remove and keep removed such a disgusting page when surely a page mocking Abraham, Moses or Mohammed would surely get some more heavy censure. Why aren't Moses and Abraham figures of fun for the modern world? Is there any way in which there exists, perhaps, a tacit approval of, or indifference to, such attention-grabbing 'gestures'?
War on Jesus and Mary
The 'atheist' war on Jesus and Mary is, it would seem, upheld by some very powerful companies and famous 'atheist' individuals. Am I the only one who can see that so many of the 'atheist' people who viscerally hate Jesus and Mary are in fact Jewish people, who may be atheistic in their public image and who apparently don't take their religion 'seriously'.
|Bishop Shomali has criticised the Talmud|
And we are to believe, are we, that people who slander Jesus and Mary, who believe Jesus is 'in Hell boiling in his own excrement' and Our Lady was a 'prostitute', it all works out well for them in the end because God respects the Old Covenant? What kind of theological gymnastics does one need to do in order to believe that people who hate the names of Jesus and Mary all have a happy end if unrepentant? Such is not what Jesus Himself taught, when He said that 'nobody comes to the Father, except through' Him.
Wherein your blogger commits thoughtcrime...
You cannot say anything that would offend the Jewish people, Heaven forbid, or indeed the homosexual people or the transgender people, a whole heap of people, or even 'the religion of peace' that slaughters Christians in public in the middle east, but Jesus and Mary are 'fair game' and so are we. Why? Because we are 'the enemy' if we believe in Jesus Christ and love His Blessed Mother. These poor souls hate us only because we have received what the World cannot receive, through grace.
|St Maximilian Kolbe: Preached vigorously against the teachings of the Talmud|
The Talmud, the holy book studied by the ultra-orthodox, more highly venerated than the Bible itself, invites religious hatred, speaks badly of Jesus, and even worse of Mary and, in general, of Christians” he said, adding that “in Israeli schools love for the other is not taught but rather the destruction of the other”.
Can we really not say that the Jewish 'holy book' the Talmud and the Islamic 'holy book', the Koran, have equally horrendous results in terms of the response to Our Lord and Saviour and His Blessed Mother? We keep hearing how the Islamic 'holy book' is the inspiration for so much evil in the world, but nothing is said of the Jewish Talmud that applies to the Gentiles a complete inferiority or sub-human status to the Jews. I've challenged a Jewish friend online on this after one of his Jewish friends called me a 'goy' but response there came back none, other than for my Jewish friend to take his friend to task for a 'lack of tact'. In other words, there are things you can say about the Gentiles in private that shouldn't be said in public? Nice!
Of course to say any of this is "anti-semitic", but its okay for people to be completely "anti-Christian" and to slander Jesus and Mary and to ridicule their followers. I know, I know, you can't say that because...well, nobody ever says why you cannot say that. Presumably, you cannot say that for the same reason that Pope Francis cannot show his 'Elder Brothers' the Cross of Christ for fear of some kind of cold treatment or alienation from the Big Brothers.
The Orthodox never had a Vatican II, you see. Anti-semitism is repugnant, but then, so is anti-Christianity and I am sickened by the way in which it does certainly appear to be tolerated or even promoted by powerful members inside the Jewish community. I have to say, I find this man Br Nathaneal rather frightening but maybe the truth about Judaism is a little bit frightening as well. He seems to preach about nothing else and launches tirades against his former 'Elder Brothers', but let's face it, if the truth about Judaism itself wasn't a bit frightening, Pope Francis would have worn his Cross openly for all the world to see, as would those who were in attendance with him.
I am sure many will find this post very offensive. I accept that it may be a very imprudent post and may bring me some enemies. I do not condone hatred of the Jewish people and never would. Following the outrage of the Holocaust, we quite rightly are very sensitive to the Jewish people. We must examine our hearts and consciences for anti-semitism, which is so dangerous and so ugly, but I ask also the question why it is that the Jewish people are never asked to examine their attitudes to Christianity, because it seems to me that the powerful among them hold it in nothing but contempt, scorn and derision. I guess that's not entirely their fault. It is what they are taught to believe, apparently, from a young age.
I don't know what we as Catholics can do about the Facebook page dedicated to smearing the holy names of Jesus and Mary. Sign the petition against it. Make acts of reparation. Pray for its closure and perhaps engage in an aggressive takeover of the site by repetitive posts of Marian devotions, images and chant which would each in their turn be most likely derided.
However, in the name of 'freedom of speech' don't expect it to be removed any time soon, because we're not the kind of people who have great power, prestige, status, protection or who blow stuff up when Our Lord is denigrated, so the enemies of the Cross can do what they like. That does not mean that while the holy names of Jesus and Mary are assaulted by both Muslims and Jews, we are to just stand by and nod our heads, embracing our enemies as our closest friends. Jesus tells us quite plainly to love our enemies and to do good to those who persecute us. He does not tell us to pretend they and we see eye to eye and to slobber all over them.
Pray for the conversion of atheists, Muslims and Jews. Despite 'ecumenism' we are still allowed to actually do that. We are all loved by the One who died for the love of us. We are all invited by Him to know the One True God and the One Who the Eternal Father sent: Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Pope Francis, on his way back from the Holy Land ruled out the beatification of Pope Pius XII. Presumably, His Holiness feels enough Popes have been raised to the Altar recently, but if Pius XII isn't being beatified for fear of the reaction of men and women who have embraced diabolical and hideous lies about Jesus and Mary, then that is no cause for celebration among Catholics. That would be about as much cause for celebration among Catholics as a Vicar of Christ who gives the impression that he hides his Cross for the same reason.
