    Pope Eliminates Pork from Banquet out of Respect for Muslims ROME — Pope Francis invited 1,500 mostly poor people to lunch this weekend to celebrate the World Day for the Poor and requested that all pork be removed from the menu so as not to give offense to Muslim guests. This Sunday marked the third annual celebration of the World Day of the Poor, a Catholic commemoration established by Pope Francis in November 2016 to celebrate the end of the Jubilee Year of Mercy.
  • U.N. Accuses Netherlands Of ‘Islamophobia’ Over Burqa Ban

    A Dutch ban on the wearing of face-covering garments such as the burqa which came into place in August has “no place” in a tolerant society, a U.N. representative said Monday. Tendayi Achiume, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on racism, said the ban reflected a wider “consolidation of Islamophobia” in the Netherlands. As Breitbart News reported, the Dutch ban took effect in August, 14 years after it was first mooted by Dutch populist Geert Wilders. The new legislation makes it illegal to wear face coverings in public buildings and on transport. “From now on the wearing of clothing which covers the...

    Where were you at 5:46 a.m. 18 years ago today? And at 6:03 a.m. that day, what, exactly, were you doing? Most of you reading this will be able to answer those questions without hesitation. At 5:46 a.m. Pacific Time on 9/11/01, five hijackers flew American Airlines Flight 11 into the northern side of 1 WTC — the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. Then, 17 minutes later, five hijackers crashed United Airlines Flight 175 into the southern side of 2 WTC. You remember these things because they register as one of the greatest tragedies...

    Pope Francis Praises New Interreligious Initiative for World Peace Jihad Watch: Dialogue does not end terrorism VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - Pope Francis lauded a new initiative Monday to implement a joint interreligious document on world peace that he and the grand imam of al-Azhar signed in February. The initiative, a higher committee established in Abu Dhabi Aug. 19 to ensure the objectives of the "Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together" are met, includes Vatican and Muslim officials. This 'Document on Human Fraternity' is full of outrageously false and misleading statements.Tweet Pope Francis praised the new initiative...

    There's nothing a person says that more serves better to convinces me of their ignorance than when they use the "C" word. They use it as if it was a magical talisman that would make us crumble to the ground and eagerly convert to whatever twaddle they're peddling. People who believe the Crusades were somehow "bad" inevitably are completely and unforgivably ignorant of both Christian and Moslem histories, let alone the infamous and barbaric treatment of Christians under invading Moslem armies in Spain, Portugal and France between AD 711-1492. The Crusades weren't started by Christians or the Church. Instead, they...

    Frontpage Mag ^ | May 1, 2019 | Vanessa Jones
    On April 19, 2019, Frontpage Mag published Milo Yiannopoulos’ lamentation on the burning of the Notre Dame Cathedral. While I share his grief over this irreplaceable loss to Western Civilization and Christianity, I was shocked to discover that he felt the necessity to trash the Jews. He did so under the convenient cover that he is a Jew -- as he states, through matrilineal descent. But, more significant than his bloodline, his belief system seems to be Catholic as evidenced by his adoration of the Virgin Mary: Mary—the ‘Our Lady’ of Notre Dame—is proof of the incarnation. It is her...

    The United States and Syrian-Kurdish forces have successfully driven Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) fighters out of Syria, ending the terrorists’ stronghold in the country that, in 2014, covered 34,000 square miles; however, aid groups and the media are reporting that the almost 80,000 people who lived under ISIS rule for years have now been relocated to a remote camp in northeastern Syria. The United Nation’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported on Monday that the Syria Humanitarian Fund (SHF) has given $4.3 million in U.S. dollars to organizations that are “delivering life-saving assistance to people displaced from the last...

    Icon of a Disastrous Papacy by Chris Ferrara Fatima Perspectives #1267 Behold the logo for the Pope’s upcoming useless trip to Morocco: the crescent moon symbolizing the religion invented by Muhammad almost completely encircles a distorted Cross. Given this Pope’s obsessive promotion of the mass migration of Muslim males into Western European capitals, including Rome itself, the image suggests that the body of Christian faithful the Cross is supposed to represent now have almost no avenue of escape from what Pope Pius XI, in saner times, called “the darkness of Islam” in a prayer traditional Roman Catholics still recite today...

    One of the interesting aspects of Fr. James Schall’s refreshing collection of essays, On Islam, is that it provides a chronological record. The first essay appeared in 2003, the last in 2018. This allows the reader to see how our understanding of Islam has changed over those years. Unfortunately, it hasn’t changed much at all. In 2003 we understood next to nothing about Islam, and in 2018 it’s still next to nothing.One of Fr. Schall’s main themes is that we must try to understand Islam as Muslims understand it, not as we would like it to be. But instead of...

    As a member of Mauritania's slave-owning class, Abdel Nasser Ould Ethmane could have had anything he wanted as a present for his circumcision ceremony: a toy, money, a camel, or, as his brother would choose, a bicycle. But the 7-year-old wanted something more sinister. He chose Yebawa Ould Keihel, a young boy with skin the color of coal. At that moment, Abdel became a slave master. It's an experience that's common here in Mauritania, a vast country in West Africa's Sahara Desert where activists and the United Nations estimate 10% to 20% of people are enslaved -- usually dark-skinned people...

    “It may be on the lips of many, but that equation is a foolish lie." This is how Pope Francis defined the equation that many make between Muslims and terrorists. He did so in the extensive interview with the director of the Echo of Bergamo newspaper, published today 24 May 2018, on the occasion of the arrival in the city of the urn with the remains of Saint John XXIII, who thus returns for the first time to his land.

    Your Excellency,You are to be commended for your December 29th statement asking Catholics to pray for “our Coptic brethren who are enduring martyrdom for the sake of Christ.” Catholics need to know the extent of the attacks on Christians in the Muslim world. As you point out, there have been 2,000 attacks on Coptic Christians in Egypt in just the last three years. These have included several horrific church bombings and the slaughter of 35 Christians who refused to convert to Islam when their buses were ambushed by Islamic gunmen.Deadly anti-Christian attacks have become commonplace in the Muslim world. Catholics need...

    March 5, 2018 by Cassandra Fairbanks 167 CommentsIn the latest absurd news to come from liberal college campuses, a group of librarians at Simmons College in Boston have declared that saying “God bless you” when someone sneezes is Islamophobic.The group has created the Anti-Oppression Library Guide, which also dictates that saying “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Easter” is an act of “Islamomisic microaggression.” “Islamomisic Microaggressions are commonplace verbal or behavioral indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicates hostile, derogatory, or negative slights in relation to the beliefs and religious practices of Muslims,” the librarians argue. “They are structurally based and invoke...
  • Can the [Catholic] Church Recover Its defensive Fighting Spirit against militant Islam?

    02/03/2018 7:58:04 AM PST · by ebb tide · 20 replies
    The Islamic world is waging—and winning—a war on Judeo-Christian civilization. With 1.3 billion Catholics worldwide, the Catholic Church is potentially one of the most powerful centers of resistance to Islam. It certainly has been in the past. Unfortunately, that’s not the case today. What are those 1.3 billion Catholics doing in regard to the struggle with Islam? Well, essentially, very little. Many of them are just standing on the sidelines. Why is that? The chief reason is that Catholics are receiving little guidance about Islam from their leaders. And what little information they receive is misleading. The hierarchy is still...

And in his January 1st message for the World Day of Peace, Francis denounced those who decry “the risks posed to national security” by mass migration. Such people, said the pope are guilty of “demeaning the human dignity due...

    The Catholic Church, which makes millions of dollars annually on refugee resettlement, is now saying that those who oppose the Muslim migrant influx are morally deficient. If you don’t want your land invaded by tens or hundreds of thousands of people with vastly different values, which they consider superior to yours, you are simply not a good Christian.Yet there is real cause for concern. Are Catholics to turn a blind eye to the fact that all of the jihadis who murdered 130 people in Paris in November 2015 had just entered Europe as refugees? Is it racism and xenophobia to...
