You know it is rare in the case of moral men, for an opponent to be so unequivalently evil as to gain condemnation from every responsible statesman, and the Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury. In fact, never in the lifetime of living men has the Pope issued a statement calling for the use of armies in a war of suppression. But he has in the case of ISIS.

And so the armies of freedom are gathering right? No they are not. Because in the world of relative humanism evil is the same as good. Any thinking person knows that acquiescence in evil is evil as well, and today, as the United States and Great Britain stand aside in the face of pure evil, we understand why that is so.

There are few thing so despicable as a man who will not defend his weaker brother, let alone his sister and children. This is who Obama and Cameron are. If they were better men they would be cowards, but they don’t even rise to that craven level.

There is a new Trifecta series out, as always, it is outstanding.

In a closely related matter, I understand that the White House has halted resupply to Israel of Hellfire missiles. The reason? Israel’s Army talked to the Pentagon instead of the White House.

I guess we all know what happened to the strawberries, don’t we.

We all know how this ends, don’t we? Pastor Niemöller pretty much said it all

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

And so civilizations die, from the rot within, God help us.

  1. But its not like we have not been seeing the evil of Radical Islam coming! Gulf War 1 was my wake-up call! And do we not remember the Armenian butchery? Armenia, that former kingdom of SW Asia, south of the Caucasus Mountains, now divided between Russia, Turkey, and Iran. But they were surely slaughtered! So no historical secret here! And just now the Papacy and the ABC are saying something about the worst of Islam? I remember when the former ABC of was trying to justify aspects of Shara law!

      Sure but people awake at different speeds, and high-ranking churchmen are very loath to invoke military solutions, as they should be. And there is a quantifiable difference between the capricious evil that modern Islam has presented to the world in the last century or so, and it’s pure unadulterated state that ISIS is. Just like the difference between a bottle of beer and a drum of Everclear.

      • There is no way we can justify the modern Papacy, or the leadership of the CoE in this area! Even the Pope Benedict (XV) during WW 1, spoke more clearly as to the evil of the Turks in his day!

          It’s not for us to justify it, I merely note it, as an usual unanimity.

      • Btw, what ever happened to “moral theology” in Catholicism? And hear I speak to the Judeo-Christian ethic! Vatican II actually helped down-play this, with the so-called other “Religions” of man… Ugh!

          That is true, although more in the interpretation than in the document itself.

        • Of course “interpretation” is everything proper! But the GS (Gaudium et spes), as the NA (Nostra aetate) of Vatican II are still problematic to say the least! Even Ratzinger as pope wrote against aspects here!

          I’m no expert on it, mind. I have read it, once, and it didn’t really read all that radical, but the implementation was, and that’s what I remember Ratzinger commenting on, and he was, he had a lot to do with writing it.

        • In many places Vatican II was the pastoral, and thus “theological” end of Roman Catholicism! It, (the Papacy) has lost its authority (biblical and moral) right here! Some Traditional Catholics are seeking to stand against all this, but they incur the wrath of the papacy itself!

        • In my opinion, no biblical and certainly true Reformational/Reformed Christian can defend Catholicism fully, and here I speak of course of the Papacy! (And this does not mean there are not true Christians in Rome, or the Anglican High Church). But the “principle” of Catholicism itself comes up lacking every time! But then, I am of course too with the Reformers themselves, (16th century). At least on soteriology/salvation! 🙂

        • Indeed NEO, this is the whole pastoral point and loss about the papacy of postmodernity! They are out of touch with both the true biblical-theological, and here I press the nature of Augustine and the biblical aspect of Augustinianism! Note again, Luther was himself something of an Augustinian Christian!!! (I meet very few Catholics these days, and here I speak of theolog’s, that get the biblical aspect of sin, and thus Paul, and Luther who sought the Pauline doctrine, and thus Augustine! Note the great debate with Augustine and Pelagius here.) And here too is the great weakness of the Eastern Orthodox, i.e. in their loss of biblical Imputation!

          Simply and generally the modern/postmodern church is Pelagian!
