The Church, Enabler of Terrorism and Other Evils?

Christians about to be executed
 by Islamic terrorists
I read a troubling article this morning at Breitbart news -- sent to me by a priest as a matter of fact. Here's the comment Father sent along with it:
VERY SOBERING AND PRPHETIC OBSERVATIONS. It is worth noting that, while Christianity was to proclaim the fulfillment of the Jewish Law and prophets in Christ, Islam was specifically established to supplant and destroy both Judaism and Christianity as both flawed and erroneous. It is sad to witness how many Church leaders seem to believe that our response to the Islamic offensive against Christianity should not be guided by a disciplined discernment of truth (evangelization), but rather "dialogue" designed to appease the defective and perverted premises and perspective of those who oppose the Lordship of Jesus Christ. If you want to see the result of such "dialogue" , check out Gen 3.
What does my priest friend find "sobering and prophetic observations?" I'm guessing but a few of the bits from the article certainly made me stop and think:
  • Most concerning is the fact that our country is being overrun by unscreened Muslims from areas of the world that hate Americans. Our FBI says 10% are likely terrorists. As a result, we are staring down the real possiblity that we are going to be facing multiple San Bernardino incidents. Yet, your pastor is silent. Christians are not being admitted as immigrants under the refugee/resettlement program from the Middle East. Christians are being beheaded, yet the Obama administration has condemned our Christian brothers, in certain parts of the Middle East, to a certain and brutal death, often by beheading. We admit many of the executioners to our country, but not the persecuted. In some parts of the world, being a Christian is a death sentence. If your pastor does not speak about this on Sunday. he is complicit with his silence.
  • Yet, today, most of our 501 C3 tax exempt churches have embraced the suicidal course of Judas as they have made a deal with the devil by espousing government doctrine even when it violates the word of God.
  • As I contemplate what many of the churches will be like as they embrace a perverted interpretation of Romans 13, I am left wondering what kind of God would condone the horrific abuses being perpetrated by the Obama administration? What kind of God would command its religious leaders to simply ignore the American Holocaust which has witnessed the murder of over 57 million American babies, since Roe v. Wade, in 1973? What kind of God would have us ignore Planned Parenthood’s selling of fetal body parts? Has your pastor said anything about this in your Sunday services?
  • Ask yourself, what kind of God would fail to command his clergy to not speak out and to condemn the actions of the criminal money changers on Wall Street, who are inspired only by the love of money as they continue their heinous assaults upon humanity in the form of unlabeled poisonous GMO’s, the theft of solvent home mortgages by the mega banks, and the secret detentions and the murder of American citizens under the NDAA. What kind of God would order his followers to remain silent as the bankster controlled government plans to commence a world war starting with Syria in order to support the preservation of the Petrodollar which will result in the potential death of billions of human beings?
While I don't embrace the solution of this commentator (He's clearly a Protestant and most of those churches secularized themselves decades, if not centuries ago.), I see the corruption he speaks of among bishops of our Catholic Church. Who can look at the Church in Germany and not see Judas counting his thirty pieces of silver? Who can listen to the pandering demand to "welcome the stranger" by bishops slow to defend the unborn and quick to arrest pro-lifers distributing election guides on church property or even towing cars parked in their lots illegally? Do they have the right to "defend their property" but defending the property and people of the United States is somehow immoral and selfish. What is a nation after all, and its culture? Are they not worth preserving by an ordered immigration vs. a massive uncontrolled invasion?

How many bishops invite the homeless to dine with them at table rather than lobby the government to increase the welfare state that impoverishes the middle class working hard to make a living? How is bashing down the borders of a nation and stealing from its children less reprehensible than bashing down the door of the rectory? Isn't the real charity to exhort the flock to share what they have and remind them they will reap from God what they sow of the goods entrusted to them? What would those bishops do if someone broke into the rectory and pilfered their silver? Somehow I don't see them imitating the bishop in Les Miserables who gives even the candlesticks to Jean Valjean and says, "I have bought your soul...and give it to God." Share today not from your excess, but give or give up something that costs you. None of us can take anything with us. What a blessing to cut the strings now by sharing what we have with those who have little or nothing.
