Random Acts Of Papistry

Ah, what trials a new Church must undergo when faced with the world's snares!
On the very day of the United Kingdom's annual state-sponsored orgy of anti-Catholic bigotry, it is gratifying to see that the Italians, hopefully loudly and with arms flailing in gestures of hopeless braggadocio, have told the EU to get stuffitissimo as far as its direction to take the crucifix out of schools is concerned. Quite why a group of technocrats who would soil themselves at the thought of the harm that being accused of anti-Semitism would do to their careers should take it upon themselves to ban the crucifix from a public space where it seems to be wanted is beyond me; if they wish the 'European flag' to be worshipped, they should quickly realise that there is much chance of that happening in one of the Union's most Catholic countries as there is of its people worshipping washers or Polo mints.
Over the course of the next few days, the British media will carry many stories of children having been killed and maimed at anti-Catholic bonfires. The irony in this situation is inescapable; year in, year out, the celebration of a violent Catholic plot's defeat results in far more death, injury and violence being done to people, often to the most innocent and vulnerable of all, than that plot was ever able to inflict. When will we learn?

The EU and the European Court of Human Rights both appear to be Dictators imbued with secularism philosophy and anti-Catholicism

In her book Faith and Treason, Antonia Fraser conjectures that the Gunpowder Plot may have been orchestrated and allowed to develop by the Machiavellian Cecil government. In our own day, events like 9/11, global warming, the current financial crisis and various political assassinations over the years have served as a pretext for governments to take actions that under normal circumstances could not pass political muster. Just as Guy Fawkes' day and its anti-Catholicism continues four hundred years later based upon an event that never happened and was probably abetted by the government, so does the new plutocratic secular crusade of the 21st century continue in Iraq and godforsaken Afghanistan against undefined and ubiquitous 'terrorism' while at the same time the real purpose is pursuing geopolitical and petroleum designs at the cost of hundreds of thousands of innocent lives.

This was an absolute outrage on the part of the EU scumbags.
