“Christian denomination”? That would be the Catholic Church founded by Christ Jesus, Son of the Living God, with something like 1.4 billion members. We’re The Church, not just some denomination, nor just a particular back-creek congregation.
All Catholic parishes in these USA, many tens of thousands of churches, are put on notice that they may be subjected to hate crimes wrought by pro-abortion hate groups in their protests against the possible SCOTUS decision overturning Roe v Wade of 1973, which would then kick legislation on abortion back to the voters of the various States. The hate crimes are threatened to happen this weekend, May 7 and 8, at the Mothers Day weekend Masses. It would be prudent to jack up situational awareness. Incidents are likely to take place anywhere that the most publicity can be had, whether that’s a cathedral or the tiniest parish in North America. Terrorism always wants to say that it can happen to you, wherever you are.
Catholic churches are private property. No one has a public, entitled “right” to be there. Anyone can be trespassed. Anyone causing real violence may be subject to receiving proportionate force to stop their violence, to stop the threat of already being delivered violence that threatens life or severe bodily compromise. But don’t escalate anything, ever, for any reason. That’s what they want. Don’t do it. You do what they do when it comes to them crossing the line of violence, meaning, as THE rule of engagement, don’t be proactive, be reactive: If a baby is smashed to the floor you take the perp(s) to the floor with only enough force as is necessary. You call 911 first. You video everything from the beginning. But I digress with that which needs a separate post. Let’s continue:
Antifa and BLM, not (yet) pegged with a domestic terrorist appellative, will be assisting groups “honoring” deceased super-abortion-maniac Ruth Bader Ginsburg by terrorizing an entire class of people (tens of millions of Catholics), perhaps with real violence, the smashing of statues, the breaking of windows, the usual spray-painting, perhaps pepper spraying, throwing of acid, sucker-punches, stabbing, gunfire, Molotov cocktails, arson, looting… you know, the usual “mostly peaceful protests” specifically with the intention of forcing the government into a political change. This is the very definition of domestic terrorism.
Bill Donohue of the Catholic League notes how idiotic are these protests against the SCOTUS, for while RBG “was an abortion-rights advocate, she also made it clear that the decision to legalize abortion should not have been made by the Supreme Court – it was up to lawmakers to render such a ruling. Moreover, she was never one to promote violence, never mind counsel a Nazi-like attack disrupting Mass.”
Bill Donohue stops short of the domestic terrorism description, for now, but does promise to “press the authorities to prosecute any attack on a Catholic Church as a hate crime.” We’ll see what happens.
Bill is right to say that “if President Biden does not address this issue, he is aiding and abetting anti-Catholicism.” I wish he would also denounce various ecclesiastics who do not pastorally correct Joe Biden to the scandal of the entire world.
Anyway, Bill continues on to say that “these thugs need to be stopped in their tracks.” I don’t know what Bill means by that, perhaps he means legally, even months and years down the line. I don’t know.
But that brings up the question of stopping violence:
- What about thugs needing to be stopped while they are throwing the little babies of our parish down and smashing their brains out all over the floor?
- What about thugs needing to be stopped while they are breaking the frail bodies of our elderly parishioners?
- What about the thugs needing to be stopped who march right up to desecrate the Blessed Sacrament during Holy Mass?
In North Carolina law, such disruption quickly ramps up to aggravated felony charges.
- “But why are at all concerned about your little parish, Father George!? It’s the tiniest in North America! No one cares about your little church, Father George! Pfft!”
Don’t be so sure. We’ve already had what seemed to be a George Soros funded group from the university campus up the highway come and visit the church on a Sunday while we were still counting the collection, scoping us out, actually asking about our ability to defend ourselves. Get that? They wanted to use the parish to set up community organizing. Such smart university students! I asked them a few incisive questions. They left totally humiliated. They left. But I’m guessing they’ll be back, perhaps this very Mother’s Day weekend.
- “Surely it’ll be just a bit of spray paint, Father George! You’re such an ol’ meanie not wanting their polite communications blared and sprayed! You’re on the wrong side of history, Father George! It’s all about megaphones and screaming and spray paint! Out with the old, in with the new!”
So, for instance, as to that spray-painting on a Catholic Church entrance out in Colorado – “My body, my choice” – my response would be that the Most Blessed Sacrament, the Body of Christ, is Christ Jesus, and He does have the choice to send such people straight to hell. His Body, His choice. Truth. Jesus was in the womb of His own Blessed Mother for nine months, and He doesn’t take kindly to those who murder the “least of the brethren” in the womb.
Antifa is acting on behalf of the murderous pro-abortionists. Just my opinion, but that likely means arson, murder, assault, destruction of property…
And then BLM – Black Lives Matter – want to protect the genocide of little black babies by supporting abortion directed at black neighborhoods, reducing the population of our black brothers and sisters by the millions, by the tens of millions. Remember BLM:
How would you like that marching up the aisle to the front of your parish church?
That may be coming to a Catholic Church near you on Mothers Day, this weekend.
Some of them will be dressed like this:
It looks like they are being escorted out of a Catholic Church by security using great deescalation techniques. Think deescalation. We don’t have paid security. We have guardian angels. We have simply really a lot of extremely capable people. Even our visitors are most awesome, FBI agents and military operators of all sorts, on vacation here in the mountains, to get away from it all, but absolutely ready to intervene in any situation.
