Robert Spencer: "Bishop cancels "foremost Catholic expert on Islam in our country" from Catholic

This is a MUST READ. In this long war and the coming years of bloodshed. I worry not about the fanaticism of the enemy, but the confusion and weakness on our side.

The capitulation of religions leaders (Jewish, Christian, Catholic, etc.) is a devastating failure of leadership in religious communities suffering under the boot of Islamic supremacism and sharia worldwide. How many bodies, Bishop? How many dead and dying before you stand up?

Bishop cancels "foremost Catholic expert on Islam in our country" from Catholic conference, but Kolbe Academy stands firm, will still host Robert Spencer talks

There is a great and growing divide. On the one side, we have Muslims increasingly victimizing and persecuting Christians, including bishops, in Egypt, Nigeria, Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Indonesia, and elsewhere. On the other side, we have bishops like Robert McManus of Worcester, Massachusetts and now Jaime Soto of Sacramento, California, both of whom canceled me from speaking because I speak honestly about that persecution and what causes it.

Ironically, Soto canceled me just as the National Catholic Register was calling me "perhaps the foremost Catholic expert on Islam in our country." This also illustrates the divide. To some people I am a racist, Islamophobic villain; to others, an honest exponent of the truth about Islam and jihad. To some Catholics I am unacceptable to speak on these issues; to others I am the foremost expert on them in the country.

So let's see ... the church turns a blind eye to the pedophile-homo priests; it turns a blind eye towards pro-abortion politicians like Pelosi and Cuomo;
it turns a blind eye to the 20 million illegals in America; and now it's turning a blind eye toward fanatical Islam.And they wonder where the parishioners went?

The Catholic Church was infiltrated by Homosexual Marxists (Bella Dodd) who are in the Vatican and many are Cardinals/Bishops now-—controlling policies.

Fr. Oko’s report reveals this War inside the Catholic Church. There are evil Satanists inside Rome as I type-—and they have incredible power. They are trying to destroy the Catholic Church for a NWO-—One world Religion-—so the Catholic Canon will have to be “changed” and “modified”....like Vatican II initiated-—to destroy the Church.

The Church has to be made to not fear the Truth—like Abs. Fulton Sheen days-—and to shout the Truth from the highest hill-—they avoided the Truth/Sin since Vatican II and their silence was deafening and evil and has destroyed America and Europe where irrational concepts are now the norm-—and anal sex is allowed to be promoted to our children as normal and “good” to eliminate Christianity from the face of the earth like in pagan days.

It is sick, how the Church has retreated from the Culture Wars in Europe and America and even South America—and allowed Marxism to flourish. It is time to pick up their sword again. NOW!!! Dump PC and their cowardice. Yes, they will be martyred just like in the early days of the Church-—that is what they are afraid of and trying to avoid.

It is all in the name of making way for Chrislam.

And the rise of Antichrist and the one-world ‘religion’ of the False Prophet.

Nothing will stop it. Too many are buying in.

The Bible is tossed aside; I’ve met many who can’t read Scripture in plain context.

All they seem to know is “judge not”. Failing to know the rest of the verse.

Wow. I had not seen the church of the front-and-center pipe organ yet. In all fairness, it does look like Mass hasn't started yet. Still, the photo reminds me of the Davies trilogy:

Yeah; it’s astonishing.

I’ve seen it first-hand many, many times. Accompanied by all sorts of irrational behavior. We are entering those times, it appears.

I now avoid those people.

Everything is backwards. Murdering jihadis are praised while the people who warn about them are condemned.

Dear Mr. Spencer, Have you kissed a Koran lately? Or praised the Muslim god? No? Well, there you go....

I’m sorry but even if you agree with everything Spencer ever said about Islam, his hyperventilating about the persecution he has endured at the hands of the bishops of the Church (who, he wants you to know, were complicit in the Vatican bank scandals ... and they also persecuted Athenasius in the 4th Century ... A.D!!) is extremely over the top.

The Bishop is not allowing him to speak ... in a local church!! Cue dramatic music! The poor guy wasn’t expecting the Spanish Inquisition, but now he’s going to have to speak ... across the street! Dramatic music!!
