America Is Seing a Surge in Anti-Catholic Vandalism – Surprised?

America is seeing a surge in anti-Catholic vandalism, Matthew Walther writes on The Week. Examples: a monument to the victims of abortion knocked over in a village in Sullivan County, New York. A crucifix smashed with a hammer in Rockford. A statue of Our Lady beheaded in Gary. Another statue of Our Lady, in Dorchester, Massachusetts, desecrated with garbage. Yet one more in the same city burned. Satanic symbols and obscene messages scrawled on the doors of a New Haven parish. More statues of Christ and Our Lady vandalised in Florida, Tennessee, New York, and Colorado. Representations of St. Junipero Serra tumbling down across the state that would not have existed without his apostolate. Priests attacked from Fargo to Washington, D.C. A vehicle driven into a church in Florida by a lunatic who filled the narthex with gasoline, igniting a blaze with parishioners inside.

Catholics Are Increasingly Objects of Suspicion

Walther concludes that church buildings are being burned and sacred images destroyed for the reason that Catholics are increasingly the objects of suspicion and loathing in the U.S. and Western Europe, just as they have long been in the Middle East and parts of East and Southeast Asia. For Walther this has to do about one thing: “hatred of the Church.”

Hatred of the Church Is Considered “Resonable”

For Walther, it’s not “especially mysterious” why such a painfully conclusion has not been more widely drawn, much less broadcast, and made the object of public regret. Quote, “The unmistakable corollary is that it’s because such hatred is considered eminently reasonable in polite society, a piece of received wisdom comparable to finding cigarettes distasteful.”

Destroying Religious Art Is Accepted “Contribution to Discussions about Race”

Walther observes that in the U.S. it’s considered unremarkable for a senator to declare belief in Catholic "dogma" an obstacle to participation in our civic and political life, for membership in anodyne charitable organizations such as the Knights of Columbus. Activists who call for the destruction of millions of pieces of religious art find their views presented as a meaningful contribution to discussions about race relations.

Killing Priests Will Be “Local Crime Stories”

Walther doesn’t hope for deliverance from anti-Catholic violence at the hands of the public authority in the U.S. because the very watchwords of the founding of the U.S. were understood by the men who uttered them as talismans against the Romish menace of priestcraft. It seems likely to Walther that when crimes even more hideous than those enumerated above become commonplace they will be reported (if at all) as mere "local crime stories."

It is very sad that the stain and dirt that has been thrown on The Catholic Church is from with in, from the homosexual agenda and the homo abuse by so many priests, cardinals and Popes (in their failures). What we are experiencing is the hatred of what should be sacred, brought on by that same cabal.

This was very evident in Australia with Cardinal Pell. God bless him for taking on at the pillar the crimes of the homosexuals who abused and defiled so many children and at the same time defiled the Holy Church of Christ. I do not know if he is guilty and that is not the point. The point is the vitriol that was rained on him is a societal response to pure hatred for the Church.

The Church that DID NOT protect our children. The Church which in the eyes of many was to be holy and acted EVIL. The same church that today continues to try to normalize this cancer of sodom by veiling it in being charitable to accept such acts and desires as normal and hence normalized in the Church.

Indeed this is pushed and foisted upon us as Catholics Faithful to the Church by our Very One and Only Holy Pope!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow....... A man who does not know good from evil leading the Church! Who would have guessed. (I am not here to argue if he is or is not Pope, just by his acts he is evil).

So when my non Catholic friends and even some catholic friends as well, excoriate the Church as evil, it is not hard to see why they see the Catholic Church as evil.

It is up to us to show these people and yes tell them that WE are the Church and it is Christs Church!

THE FIRST AND ONLY CHURCH OF CHRIST, and that "We"are not evil, even if many, many, maybe at this moment in time, MOST priests, bISHOPS and Cardinals and yes THE POPE are evil.
So do we throw Christ out with the Church?
Let them burn it down it is just a building. The Catholic Faith continues.
