We Are The Church Militant

Unless you get your news from MSNBC, you know about the genocide of Christians currently taking place in the Middle East. Recently, the exiled Chaldean Catholic Archeparch of Mosul, Archbishop Amel Nona, made an impassioned plea,
Our sufferings today are the prelude of those you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future. I lost my diocese. The physical setting of my apostolate has been occupied by Islamic radicals who want us converted or dead. But my community is still alive. 
Please, try to understand us. Your liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here. You must consider again our reality in the Middle East, because you are welcoming in your countries an ever growing number of Muslims. Also you are in danger. You must take strong and courageous decisions, even at the cost of contradicting your principles. You think all men are equal, but that is not true: Islam does not say that all men are equal. Your values are not their values. If you do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed in your home.
Archbishop Nona's warning is chilling. Read it again. Let his unsettling warning sink into your heart. His flock is decimated. We must not allow complacency to be our end as well. Heed the warning.

See "Archbishop of Mosul: 'I have lost my Diocese to Islam - You in the West will also become the victims of Muslims'" for the message from the exiled leader.

Note: This sobering topic is expounded upon further over at the Gabriel Possenti Shooters blog.

  1. And too many people, perhaps because they have lost the concept of evil, do not understand the danger. We abhor the solution but it's the only one being left to us. And in the end it's the moral one, because innocents are being slaughtered.

    1. The devil's greatest accomplishment is convincing people he does't exist.
