Leading Catholic Cardinal: Europeans Are to Blame for Allowing Islam to “Conquer” the Continent.

Cardinal of Rome: the conquest of Europe is looming.

Eastern Europeans, having lived under communist totalitarianism and the tyranny of political correctness for 70 years, are not afraid to speak their minds and offend insipid, limpwristed secular progressives or any of their protected class mascots:

Czech Cardinal Miloslav Vlk, the Archbishop of Prague, said Muslims were well placed to fill the spiritual void “created as Europeans systematically empty the Christian content of their lives”.

“Europe will pay dear for having left its spiritual foundations and that this is the last period that will not continue for decades when it may still have a chance to do something about it,” he said.

“The Muslims definitely have many reasons to be heading here. They also have a religious one – to bring the spiritual values of faith in God to the pagan environment of Europe, to its atheistic style of life.

“Unless the Christians wake up, life may be Islamised and Christianity will not have the strength to imprint its character on the life of people, not to say society.”

He said he did not blame Muslims for the crisis as Europeans had brought it upon themselves by exchanging their Christian culture for an aggressive secularism that embraced atheism.

“Europe has denied its Christian roots from which it has risen and which could give it the strength to fend off the danger that it will be conquered by Muslims, which is actually happening gradually,” he said.

“At the end of the Middle Ages and in the early modern age, Islam failed to conquer Europe with arms. The Christians beat them then.

“Today, when the fighting is done with spiritual weapons which Europe lacks while Muslims are perfectly armed, the fall of Europe is looming.

The disturbing rest, here.

  1. This is really amazing. It really puts the situation in context: “[The Muslims] also have a religious [reason for heading here] – to bring the spiritual values of faith in God to the pagan environment of Europe, to its atheistic style of life.”

    I think we can say we’ve learned (at least) three things in this article:

    1. The trauma of the 20th century is what needs to be addressed and rectified (not necessarily attacking ‘Liberalism’)

    2. Where are the Christian missionaries to ‘pagan Europe’? We’ve (Conservatives) been so bloody concerned with distancing ourselves from the Continent we (by omission) are complicit in this ‘take over’.

    3. The Vatican is getting ready for the fall of Europe …

    It’s likely we should do both. Otherwise that would be like saying we should address the “causes of terrorism”, while ignoring the actual terrorists walking onboard the plane. You need to tackle both. Although this “trauma of the 20th century” you’re talking about is beyond my ken at this point.

    Our missionaries are still in Africa converting the “savages,” when they should be converting the pagans in Europe.

  3. “Otherwise that would be like saying we should address the “causes of terrorism”, while ignoring the actual terrorists walking onboard the plane.”

    That’s a seriously bad analogy though … there is plenty that is bracketed under the term [Liberalism] that is born from Judeo-Christian virtue (yes, even today). It’s not all culture destroying atheistic humanism. I think it would behoove the cause to be more precise in defining the ‘enemy’.

  4. I wasn’t trying to liken “Liberals”, or even far Left secular progressives, as terrorists. They’re safe as long as they aren’t resorting to violence. I was analogizing the process used to deal with the enemy. You don’t choose one over the other, you use both. But now that you mention it, I do consider PC a form of mental terrorism. Yeah, they are terrorists of a kind.

  5. “I was analogizing the process used to deal with the enemy.”

    This is more what I am concerned with … i don’t really care what kind of combatant you label them. What I do care is that the bracketed [Liberal] is considered ‘enemy’ much as you would consider islamic terrorists ‘enemy’.

    The point I am trying to make is that there is much redeemable and much that comes from Judeo-Christian values in said bracketed [Liberalism]. The enemy, however, is not [Liberalism] but secular atheistic culture destroying Liberalism.

    I for one think there is much from Liberalism that should be preserved and is built up from taking concepts like Justice, Freedom, and Liberty seriously …

  6. I for one think there is much from Liberalism that should be preserved and is built up from taking concepts like Justice, Freedom, and Liberty seriously

    That’s “liberalism”, small ‘l’. Philosophical liberalism.

    What about “Liberalism”, big “L”? The movement Liberals. Wonderful people, I’ve no doubt. But who do big ‘L’ Liberals consider their enemy, if not me? They despise me and what I believe in more than they do Al-Qaida. I’m an “American Taliban” to them. They have nothing to say to me, unless it’s to insult me and assassinate my character, destroy me personally, or do anything it takes to eliminate the threat to their power. An islamic terrorist is safer in their hands than I would be.

    So small ‘l’ liberalism yes, big ‘L’ movement Liberalism no. I’m pretty clear on who the enemy is. And believe me so are they.

  7. “And believe me so are they.”

    That is a big ‘they’ and that is what i’m talking about. Bracket [Liberalism] with a big L.

    So for example: Was what MLK fought for part of the problem? Was the people who worked with (Jessie Jackson, et. al.) or the people inspired by MLK (some drew on ‘Gramsci’ other didn’t) part of the problem?

    This approach of [if you’re not with us you’re against us] will only lead to sectarianism. The way I see it, (and for any government sweepers this is ONLY implied in the metaphorical sense) they can afford to ‘carpet bomb’ but an insurgency needs to pick choice high value targets in order to win over hearts and minds …

  8. Youre right. I think some Liberals can be reached. But which ones? Maybe those who still consider themselves christian. They have to be forced to choose between secular progressive or judeochristian, you can’t have both. Because if we don’t force them to choose, the secular progressives most definitely are forcing them to choose. They forced me, and I chose to walk away. So there are Liberals out there who can be brought over.

    Also there are “Liberals” who are more right-of-center if you talk to them about issues without the labels, but who think they are Liberal out of loyalty to the tag “Liberal.” They can be forced to cross over too.

    Also Libeals like this Lord Carey and Rowan Williams guys who agree with us on the big civilizational issues, even if he disagrees with me on small potatoes like healthcare and taxes. They can be brought over too.

    That’s why I prefer to use “secular progressive” than Liberal, because the former are hopelessly lost. They are the enemy dragging the whole Leftist project along, while mainstream Liberals just follow along blindlessly. It’s these blind ones I want to reach. And I want to do that by avoiding party politics, which makes people stupid, as well as avoiding personalizing politics, which also makes people stupid. Just keep it on the issues. Just issues.

  9. I think ‘secular progressive’ is a perfect label …
