I̶s̶l̶a̶m̶i̶c̶ ̶f̶u̶n̶d̶a̶m̶e̶n̶t̶a̶l̶i̶s̶t̶s̶ ̶h̶a̶v̶e̶ Islam has a special loathing for Christianity

Now the persecution of Christians is coming to Europe

On Tuesday morning, an 85-year-old man was forced to his knees while his throat was slit by Islamic fanatics. The murder of Father Jacques Hamel in the church at Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, near Rouen, has been recognised by western public opinion as an act of unspeakable barbarity. One could say that the facts speak for themselves. But for Catholics, this atrocity possesses a special horror.

    The response from European leaders so far has been, “Well, duh!”

    • Much of the political class in Europe and here also are quite happy to see Christians persecuted.

      Quickly reported… then back to the big story… Trump and the Russian hackers!

    Rex Murphy has a good story on this at the National Post website.

    The irony (and that huge elephant in the room) is that Jesus was a Jew. He lived as a Jew, he preached as a Jew and he died as a Jew. The Romans reserved crucifixion as a special form of death for Jews. It is merciful that Hamel was not subjected to that fate.

    Yes, the murder of Father Hamel was an unspeakable evil fraught with the symbolism pointed out by Thompson, but in our godless secularism, who’s paying attention to symbols?

    The question is, will Hamel’s murder jolt France out of its paralytic coma? Or is it far too late?

    Of course Islam hates Christianity particularly Catholicism. Islam is satanically possessed. It simply creepy and not of this world the vitriolic hatred for the cross or Jesus as second person of the Trinity.

    I know some of the readers will scoff but if you look to the Moslem persecutions over the centuries particularly in Spain. You see just how high and turned on they are by their vindictiveness

    As far as I am concerned the Muslims may as well kill every Priest in the fucking land.
    How does that coagulate with your apologies Pope Francis?

  • Shebel

    I am so sick of this stupid fucking POPE . I am not attempting to disrespect the Catholic Faith—- But this asshole Pope is not fucking normal.
    He would make a better Imam than a Pope .

  • “Father Hamel was killed while re-enacting the death of Jesus Christ on
    the cross. That is the essence of the Catholic Mass, which — unlike
    Protestant commemorations of the Last Supper — is presented to the
    faithful as the same sacrifice offered by Jesus.

    To kill a priest who is saying Mass is therefore an act of unique
    desecration. You do not need to be a believer to grasp this point.
    Enemies of the church have understood it since the beginning: an early
    pope, St Sixtus, was beheaded during Mass in 258 ad by agents of the
    Emperor Valerian.”

    Does this need to be spelled out any further?

    Pope Francis is not getting it. The Catholic Church did not declare war on Islam but it declared war on us.

    It’s time to fight back.

    Can you imagine in your wildest dreams , some crazy , strolling into a fucking Mosque and then slitting the Imams throat.
    Sweet Jesus—the Muslims would use this as an excuse to murder and rape Christians and Jews in 25 different Counties. 500,000 dead.
    I am so sick and tired of people kissing Muslim ass.
