I do not subscribe to the near lunatic rantings of popular so-called Catholic bloggers that Obama has a mission to see Muslims wipe out Christianity. What we are in fact seeing are the cumulative effects of America's follies throughout the world accelerated by a president who has forwarded the most immoral agenda imaginable. Abomination is America's new normal.
I saw a comment in Father Z's combox that has truly given me pause. The writer spoke of the Apocalypse starting with a homosexual takeover of the West with a Muslim takeover of the East. Doesn't this make you wonder?
I now have co-workers who refer to their same-sex lovers as husbands or wives. One has given birth to biologically engineered children who have been brought into a world of gender-bending confusion and immorality disguised as a loving home. I say nothing, offer no congratulations or in any way express interest or concern for this farce other than to pray for their conversion and the spiritual well-being of the children.
It's only going to get worse.
Last week the meteorologist on a popular newscast simultaneously exited the proverbial closet and announced the birth of his son with his partner via a surrogate in one fell swoop. You should see the PC crowd falling down all over the place to sell this poison. This is why if you have small children you might want to trash your television. You just never know where this deception is going to come at you next.
We live a very simple life in this house. Lately I have been over-ridden with guilt for simply enjoying a movie or a Phillies game (even if they are having a dismal season). I now know why. There isn't much time and there is really nothing else that needs be done right now except pray and do penance.
Satan has a whole new legion of recruits. Some want your very life. Others just want to rob you of your soul in the most insidious way possible: by taking perversion to new heights and trying to convince you that it's ok to have an abortion because, after all, it's just a clump of cells. It's ok for two men to raise a baby because after all, look at all the welfare queens birthing babies into abuse and neglect. Got a problem with this? You're labeled a homophobe and a barrage of blasphemy is released in the direction of Jesus Christ that makes you physically ill.
And what will come of the genocide in the Middle East? I do not know but throughout the history of the Church martyrdom has never marked the end of Christianity. The Blood of the Lamb always given rise to new members of His Mystical Body. The beheading of children is our sick and sordid world's version of feeding Christians to lions. At least these innocents died with Christ in baptism and will rise with Him now that their earthly lives are over. In the end, they triumphed.
America's children who are prevented from knowing Christ or, worse, have outright rejected Him face a fate that is no less terrifying and which will know no end.
"In the end, my Immaculate Heart will be your only refuge".
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
