Christians Prepare for Kristallnacht in IndianaBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
"This bill will keep Indiana from doing what Washington and Colorado are doing to their florists and bakers, which is to punish them for running their businesses according to conscience and Christian principle.
"But any effort to protect religious liberty in America now draws the withering fire of homosexual activists, who know that the only thing that stands between them and the total takeover of our culture is religious conviction. Therefore they must smash and obliterate religious liberty wherever it is found.
"Businesses such as Angie’s List are already canceling multi-million dollar projects in Indiana, conventions are being canceled, mayors in cities such as San Francisco have banned any taxpayer-funded travel to the state, Apple CEO Tim Cook is writing scathing editorials, Charles Barkley is condemning Indiana, and the NCAA and the NFL are rattling their sabers about punishing the Hoosier state for the crime of protecting the free exercise of religion.
"With the Final Four being hosted by Indianapolis this coming Saturday, expect things to be at fever pitch all week. Already, pro-family organizations that worked to pass this bill are getting death threats and Christian businesses are getting threatened too. We’re closer than most people think to our own Kristallnacht, in which Christian businesses could be trashed, vandalized and burned by radical anti-Christian bigots." Full Report at Barbwire
REMNANT COMMENT: When will Catholics wake up to what's really going on here--and to what's been going on in the Catholic Church for the last 50 years? True Traditional Catholicism has nothing to do with lobbying for "liturgical preferences". The old way of praying must be restored so that the old way of believing can be restored so that Catholics can grow a spiritual and moral backbone and once again begin to lead the world out of darkness and chaos.
The only force on earth capable of stopping the bloody crucifixion of the Mystical Body of Christ--that means YOU and your children--is the Catholic Church. There is only one moral authority in the world that comes from God and that truly matters, and that authority has been infiltrated by Modernists who are trying to make the Catholic Church palatable to a world that hates Christ. It's not working, it will never work, and it's time to abandon miserably failed policies based on the "spirit of Vatican II".
Please, wake up and stop defending the revolution. Understand what has happened to your Church. For God's sake and the sake of your children, return to the old Catholic Mass, reject the "new evangelization" which has only decapitated the authentic Catholic missionary spirit, and resist the ecumenical brainwashing designed to undermine all things Catholic.
Obviously, the world is in desperate need of a strong and restored Catholic Church but now, five decades after the Second Vatican Council, the Catholic moral authority has grown silent, the Catholic priesthood is awash in scandal, the Catholic Pope is refusing to "judge" and the Catholic liturgy is becoming increasingly ridiculous. Don't you see what's happened? As St. John Fisher put it, 'the fort is betrayed even by them that should have defended it.'
Time is running out. The only hope for the world is the Traditional Catholic restoration. Nothing else matters.
