(Video of the anarchists "occupying" a church in Rome, taking a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary out, and smashing it in the street)
Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said he condemned the violence and the fact that a church was desecrated by some protesters who broke in and destroyed some images. He referred to the clashes in Rome as horrific.
The 18th-century church of Santi Marcellino and Pietro is near St John Lateran square where much of Saturdays violence occurred.
When I came down, I saw the entrance door had been smashed in, the churchs parish priest, Father Giuseppe Ciucci, was quoted by Italian media as saying.
The Virgin Marys statue, which was at the entrance, had been taken away and I saw it had been thrown into the street and smashed, he said.
I went into the sacristy and I saw the door there was also destroyed. The large crucifix at the entrance had been vandalized, he added.
May Our Lord afflict these people with such feelings of guilt as to inspire them to repentance and conversion. May He bring good out of the evil these people have done.
Let them Occupy Hell next
Ping for later
“Let them Occupy Hell next.”
Correct! I truly believe that we are heading for times which we have only seen in apocalyptic movies. AND NO I am not talking about God’s in times I am talking about times that men will make so bad that people will cry out for God to end things.
We are at least in for a fall much like that of that we are in for something like the collapse of Argentina ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yerKMQc7-w&feature=grec_index )but on a global scale. Additionally I think we will see a much more violent version. As recent events show (Flash Mobs, UK riots, etc)we have a larger entitlement minded population and a the US has a much more violent and armed population than Argentina. I see many many small business wiped out by flash mob looting, and see rape, robbery and murder for murder sake. Many of these yutes will think no more about killing you than most people think about stepping on a roach. That will be the test of many. Most preppers I know are Christian people and they will hesitate to do what they might have to do to stop the yutes. On the other hand the yutes wont think twice nor lose a minute of sleep, in fact they will smile and laugh about it.
Think of this quote which is one of my favorites:
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8) (1998)
Quark: Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. Theyre a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people... will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. You dont believe me? Look at those faces. Look in their eyes.
Now go look at some of the videos of the riots in the UK and of some of the flash mobs here in the US and look into there eyes.
For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:
For those of you who havent started already its time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.
As the LDS say When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.
Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3
Lastly this for the doubters and the scoffers.
There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.
Underestimation can be fatal.
It is sadly humorous when you see supposed Christians adopting the language or superstitions of pagan religions...
I’ll never do that, knock on wood... :)
Deface God’s image and you’ll probably get away with it — He is accustomed of being abused from the very beginning.
Deface His Mother’s image and He may just lose His temper.
Have you never heard of:
- World War 1
- World War 2
- The Spanish Flu of 1918
- The Great Depression
- The various plagues, including the Black Plague
...to name just a few.
Loving your enemies, praying for your persecutors, and doing good to those who maltreat you is a completely pagan attitude. It has nothing whatever to do with Christianity.
Or maybe you meant something else?
I was talking about the other, earlier reference to “karma”.
These people don’t get it. They will have to answer to God for what they say, what they do, and how they treat other people.
Correct, but everytime I post something about putting something back, to prepare yourself to provide for you and your family should times get bad I get told about how if God is ending it all it doesn’t matter and you can’t escape it. And I agree if it’s God that’s ending things, but not if man is just screwing things up!
I’ve seen a quote like that somewhere! Thanks!
Sorry. That should have been obvious.
I’m not sure if that other fellow is even Christian. Perhaps he’s Hindu or Buddhist.
If not ...
Looks like we’re on the same page.
Leftists can mess with Jesus but don’t dare mess with his momma. The gates of hell must be entered in by a leftward turn.
And the Boy Scouts are taught what?
These fools must’ve taken their cue from Susan Sarandon. Evil.
Like breaking a mirror, walking under a ladder and crossing a black cat all in one.
May they be afflicted with pestulance.
I join Arrogant Bustard in hoping the Lord will draw them to repentance when they sober up, look in a mirror,and realize they've become repugnant objects, hating and hateful. May they realize that God desires to heal their pestulance.
better yet, may the Holy Spirit convict their souls of sin and may they come to faith in Jesus Christ for the salvation of their souls.
"Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord."
From the video it looks like one of the Anarchists broke the statue - and other demonstraters went off on him. And then the cops (with helmets) came to break up what was hopefully a severe beating of the Anarchist.
I doubt it will give any pause to the majority of the protesters though - on who is behind the protests, what they ultimately want, etc.
To me that means - leave “getting back” to God, He’ll do a better job anyway.
Best to leave it in His hands.
Gottes Mühlen mahlen langsam, mahlen aber trefflich klein
Ob aus Langmut er sich säumet, bringt mit Schärf' er alles ein.
Though the mills of God grind slowly,yet they grind exceeding small.
Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all.
- Friedrich v. Logau, trans. Longfellow
I’m a fan of anything that gets them on the next train south. Way down south where it’s burning hot.
