Sharia Law here in the hinterland?
Unthinkable, right? Not anymore, at least not since
large numbers of Somali Muslims have decided to trade
their desert sand for our frozen tundra. And while the
snow isn’t a problem for our new neighbors the law of
the land is proving to be, which is why they’re lobbying
to have Muslim law recognized and enforced here in
Last month Somali employees began refusing service
to Minnesotans attempting to purchase bacon from the
frozen food departments of local Target stores. Pork,
after all, is unclean and mustn’t be handled
In addition, the Minneapolis Star Tribune
reported on more than 5000 cases of Somali cab drivers
refusing to pick up fares that failed various Sharia
So, evidently, if Sven and Ole are spotted outside the
airport with so much as a bottle of wine in their
possession they may
well have trouble hailing a cab. Even sight-impaired
folks with service dogs are reportedly being stranded
curbside because animals are considered unclean and for a Muslim
to transport one in his automobile would violate Sharia
But here in “God’s country” our strength is our
diversity, or so we’re told by our social engineers; so
there’s no stopping Sharia law. Rather than showing
their Muslim mutineers the door, Target stores are
merely reassigning them to departments where they’ll be
less apt to run afoul of Sharia law. And what
about those Somali
cabbies? Still gainfully employed, of course, and
electing on their own who gets a ride home from the
airport and who doesn’t. It’s multiculturalism at its
Still, one can’t really blame the Muslim for the absurd
surrender of the Christian. The people tolerating this
sort of nonsense in their various countries were once a
Christian people. And when formerly Christian societies
begin laying down their swords, abandoning their
founding principles, criminalizing Christianity, and
effectively eliminating their own borders, should we
really blame the inevitable Muslim interlopers for
stepping into the void?
Christians could mount some sort of legal challenge in
defense of their own culture and laws, I suppose, but
that would require cooperation from at least a few
Christians that still actually give a damn. And there’s
the rub. Most of us can't even stir ourselves when
creatures like Lady Gaga "entertain" the kids dressed as
a nun while desecrating a rosary and engaging in
simulated gay sex. Clearly, an unimaginative little
stain like Gaga has nothing to fear from the Christian
Christianity withstood every assault leveled against it
over two millennia--the Romans, the Barbarians, the
Vikings, even Napoleon, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mao.
But it's having one 'hell of a time' with modern
democracy. Over the past half century the
Christian surrender has been complete. And an
anti-Christian society is no match for Islam.
Even the Catholic Church—the once great
nemesis of Islam—has been busy Protestantizing its
sacraments, discarding its sacramentals, and plundering
its own sanctuaries. Who’s fault is that?
Catholic schools and universities routinely teach the
mythification of Sacred Scripture, the denial of
Genesis, the promotion of evolution, and the recasting
of defenders of absolute truth as blood brothers to the
fascists. Shall we blame Islam for this, as well?
It may be fashionable to hate Muslims right now but
it’s not right and it only exacerbates the problem.
If we had any appreciation for history we’d be terrified
of what’s in store for us, realizing along with Hilaire
Belloc that “cultures spring from religions” and that
ultimately the vital force which maintains any culture
“is its philosophy, its attitude toward the universe”,
and that the “decay of a religion involves the decay of
the culture corresponding to it.” Belloc argued that the
“bad work begun at the Reformation is bearing its final
fruit in the dissolution of our ancestral doctrines—the
very structure of our society is dissolving.”
So said Belloc—but he doesn’t play for the Yankees nor
does he work for the Fox News Channel. So, whatever!
“O Stupid Catholics, who has bewitched you?”, Fr.
Richard Perozich asked Catholics in San Diego last month. “It is
either going to be the way of evil or the way of truth.
We must engage it as an ambassador for Christ and not as
an agent of the devil.”
But when Nancy Pelosi, Roger Mahony, and Joe Biden become the new face of Catholicism
in the West is it any wonder that Islam is rising?
There’s nothing but buffoonery standing in its way. The Catholic
Church is far too busy closing her own churches and
proclaiming the good news of ecumenism and Theology of
the Body to stand up to much of anything, even the
renegades and apostates running her own institutions.
Sharia law is coming, and so is the Divine chastisement
we no longer fear because we no longer believe. Instead
we blame everyone and everything for our predicament,
which is a consequence of own crisis of
belief, fostered and encouraged by the policies of our
own shepherds. We’ve become faithless and afraid, hoping
to win the approval of our secularist jailors by hiding
our Faith and even denying our King. But killing
Muslims, bombing their cities, banning burqas, railing
against them on TV is not going to change the fact that
we’ve dropped the Cross—which is only the reason the
Crescent is rising.
If we continue to reject the social kingship of Christ
there is no hope for us. Our faith will have failed to
such an extent that all we can do is make lame appeals
to a democracy which, as the late, great Michael Davies
contended, was itself “enshrined in the French
Revolution’s Declaration of the Rights of Man, the
declaration which constituted a formal and insolent
repudiation of the Social Kingship of Our Lord Jesus
Christ”. Clearly the enemy has won total victory over
us when all we can think to do here on the eve of our
total destruction, is appeal to him for our
salvation and behave in public as if Our Lord no longer
Our Holy Church teaches that Omnis potestas a Deo
– “All authority comes from God – not “We the People.”
We the People overthrew the Social Kingship of Christ in
the first place, and now the chickens are coming home to
roost. Is this the fault of the Muslims? Or are
they merely the instruments of God’s justice, the Divine
remedy for universal apostasy among Christians?
Our only help is in the Name of the Lord.
Unless we return to the proclamation of His law, I
fear we can expect Sharia law to become ours here at
home and throughout all Christendom. It’s Christ
the King—or chaos. There is no alternative.
Please God, let’s wake up before it’s too late!
