I want to be sensitive but there comes a time when principle comes forth and truth must be said, the offended be damned if they do not like it.
I've had Catholic followers on twitter. Personally I don't care if you're Catholic or any other faith, but that's how they self-identify. So be it.
And it baffled me to hear them say how they feel they are so persecuted. Hmmm, really? The world is against Catholics? Cry me a river, it's a load of crap on a stick.
Suddenly they are waking up to the fact that the Muslim world wants domination. And in that case they are correct, the Muslims want to kill the Christians.
Here's the problem: the Muslims have been murdering Jews forever. They have been coming after the Jews but the Christians didn't care, especially the Catholics in Europe. The Catholic Church turned their backs on saving Jews. Now because it's being spread past the Jews to the Catholics and other Christians it suddenly has become for them persecution. Woa is the poor Catholic who everyone is against.
I'm a Jew who grew up in a Christian country. I've always known this. My parents made it very clear to me. I've accepted this. Catholics believe in Christ. You have NOT been persecuted in this country. You are not being persecuted in the world because you're Catholic.
The Muslims are after you because you did nothing to stand up for Israel, to save the Jews and they perceived you as weak. They studied you're behavior and saw they could run you over. The Jews were just the canary in the coal mine.
Here's what bothers me the most. Catholics along with me will scream about how Muslims will not speak out loudly, clearly against the horrors within their leadership/faith. "Where are the moderates?" They will repeat along with me. But they will mostly sit silent on this, make justifications that this is just the Bishops.
These are your LEADERS. They REPRESENT your faith. Now it's your turn to BOLDLY speak against them.
