Be Thou King, O LORD!

The deaths continue to mount. The blood on the hands of Angela Merkel, David Cameron, Barack Hussein Obama, Justin Trudeau, Francois Hollande drips. Worse, is the blood on the hands of Jorge Bergoglio himself, who continues to insist that an un-Christianised Europe, weak from religious relativism, multicultural egalitarianism, liberal fascism and sexual libertinism and homosexuality, is in any way capable of defending itself against the hordes of invasion of so-called "migrants." More, more, more he demands. Let in more. On top of that, this Pope of Rome calls Islam a "religion of peace," and claims that its "god," is God; and declares it a "sin" to proselytise to them.

Why is the world, and I speak here of the Christian and post-Christian world, blind to the reality of Islamism? What has blinded our Western, so-called, leaders to the evil that is within our borders? Why have the very Popes of Rome themselves, from Vatican II on, betrayed the Truth to pacify what is a political system of global dominance and hate of Christ, straight out of Hell, itself. 

It was not always this way.

"There is also the superstition of the Ishmaelites which to this day prevails and keeps people in error, being a forerunner of the Antichrist…. From that time to the present a false prophet named Mohammed has appeared in their midst. This man, after having chanced upon the Old and New Testaments and likewise, it seems, having conversed with an Arian monk, devised his own heresy. Then, having insinuated himself into the good graces of the people by a show of seeming piety, he gave out that a certain book had been sent down to him from heaven. He had set down some ridiculous compositions in this book of his and he gave it to them as an object of veneration.”

That quote is from St. John Damascene (d. 749), a Syrian Catholic monk and scholar, from his book On Heresies under the section On the Heresy of the Ishmaelites (in The Fathers of the Church. Vol. 37. Translated by the Catholic University of America. CUA Press. 1958. Pages 153-160.) 

Perhaps that Syrian Catholic monk who saw first-hand the hordes of Mohamed destroy and Arabise his land (and that of my forefathers in Lebanon) might know a thing or two, and perhaps, his word might be trusted more than that of Jorge Bergoglio.

Many are of course familiar with the prayers of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. in the few parishes that would recite it during a First Friday devotion How many are aware that what is heard is a politically-correct, sanitised version purged of the direct address and prayer for conversion of the two great lies of history -- Islam and Talmudic and Rabbinical Judaism, that which is post Christ, post Temple.

Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Most sweet Jesus,
Redeemer of the human race,
look down upon us,
humbly prostrate before Thine altar.
We are Thine and Thine we wish to be;
but to be more surely united with Thee,
behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today
to Thy Most Sacred Heart.
Many, indeed, have never known Thee;
many, too, despising Thy precepts,
have rejected Thee.
Have mercy on them all,
most merciful Jesus,
and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart.
Be Thou King, O Lord,
not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee,
but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee,
grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house,
lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.
Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions,
or whom discord keeps aloof
and call them back to the harbour of truth and unity of faith,
so that soon there may be but one flock and one shepherd.
Be Thou King of all those who even now sit in the shadow of idolatry or Islam, and refuse not Thou to bring them into the light of Thy kingdom.
Look, finally, with eyes of pity upon the children of that race,
which was for so long a time Thy chosen people;

and let Thy Blood, which was once invoked upon them in vengeance,
now descend upon them also in a cleansing flood of redemption and eternal life.

Grant, O Lord,
to Thy Church,
assurance of freedom and immunity from harm;
give peace and order to all nations,
and make the earth resound
from pole to pole with one cry:
Praise to the Divine Heart
that wrought our salvation:
to it be glory
and honour forever.
By Pope Pius XI

The "shadow of idolatry or Islam." Pope Pius XI was speaking here of Moslems, Hindus, Buddhists. Then the "chosen people." Nothing politically-correct about that!

Too many to list here, are the commentaries of the Saints on Islam, but a good summary can be found at this post on OnePeterFive. They knew what it was that they were dealing with.

How any Christian who has a true faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ can consider Islam true is the height of blasphemy and betrayal. 

I have challenged my own second cousin directly as a heretic. He for decades now, is a laicised priest, once of the Resurrectionist Fathers out of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, and now married to a former "mother superior," who still looks like a nun. A man well into his 70's who betrayed his own ordination and the faith of his Lebanese and Maronite Fathers, and who professes Arian belief, who sees Islam as equal, denies the Holy Trinity and places Jesus as nothing more than "the most perfect man." 

It is an act of scandal and blasphemy against the First Commandment for Pope Bergoglio and those who came before him to pray in mosques, with an Imam or to state that Islam is a "religion of peace" or that Muslims worship, "the same God." They most certainly do not. They may "profess" to do so, as Vatican II and the Catechism state for ecumenical purposes, but they do not. God will be vengeful upon the Church's leaders for failing to preach the truth.

Are there good Muslims? Of course. But if they are good, it is not because of Islam, it is in spite of it. Will they go to Hell? "There is no salvation outside the Catholic Church." Period. If God, in his infinite mercy, chooses to "save" a "good" Muslim who in complete ignorance and a life according to natural law did not know better, well, that is up to God. For you and I to think otherwise is a lie. For you and I to not tell a Moslem the truth, is an evil that will be measured out upon us. For the Pope to do it, one shudders to think of how low in Hell, they will be for leaving these poor people in the darkness in which they dwell.

Throughout history, there were great men such as Charles Martel made famous at the Battle of Tours, Don Juan of Austria, Jan Sobieski of Poland and the great Saints of Otranto lead by St. Antonio Primaldi and Ferdinand II and the Reconquista of the Iberian peninsula. These great men rose up to lead the people of Europe in war and expulsion of the Islamist hordes who would see to it to spread their sharia throughout the civilised world. That sharia spreads amongst what those Mohammedans call the "Dar al-taweed" or "house of war," because we have forgotten something else of that wise Pope, Pius XI who wrote the prayers to the Sacred Heart referred to earlier. We have forgotten and outright denied the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ.

Another Jorge, the self-professed Catholic-atheist, Jorge Agustín Nicolás Ruiz de Santayana y Borrás, known in English as George Santayana, said; "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."  

We have forgotten what Islam did to our civilisation. Will we have the courage to remember what it will take to save it?

When the streets teem with the blood of their loved ones, people will wake up and realize what they have done by inviting in these barbaric hordes. I am convinced nothing but that will accomplish the awaking from the stupor of political correctness that muslims are using to invade lands formerly barred to them for good reason. What a diabolical stupor most people are in. They see what happens at Nice or Orlando or Germany and think, that is over there, that is their problem, won't come here, but how foolish. Islam surely does want only conquest, and that saying, "The muslim extremist wants to cut your head off, the moderate muslim wants the muslim extremist to cut your head off" is true.
For our pope and church to ignore Catholic or world history and deny the obvious, what can it be called? Insanity? Political correctness? It must go beyond these surely. To allow the takeover of Christianity due to the factors you named, to put all Christians at great risk, to deny the reality and say we worship the same god, it is to live in a Bizarro world, where nothing makes sense any longer. To see secular atheist leaders inflict these barbarians on their people is bad, only death, mayhem, and destruction can result, but to see the pope do it...Even if they had goodwill in doing it, they must see that Islam is right now stronger in terms of human will than Christianity in a cultural sense, Islam does not apologize, Christians do! In the human realm of culture, Christianity is now weak, and will not be able to hold up against this tide. Still they are invited is a self-inflicted genocide, invited on us by our pope and Cardinals and Bishops and leaders...
In the US, something entirely different, an administration that surely is not going to sit by passively...may God bless them and help them...

Hilaire Belloc's book The Great Heresies lists five major heresies throughout the past 2000 years. He classifies Islam as a Christian heresy, not a religion. If Belloc was alive today, he'd probably have a fatwa issued against him like Salman Rushdie. So if anyone finds The Great Heresies by Hilaire Belloc, grab it because you never know when the PC ideologues might ban it.

Remember, that Pope Francis says there are no Islamic terrorists, but he has heard of plenty of Catholic terrorists.
