A Catholic Priest Tells Christians to Stop Being So Naïve — Wake up to the Threat of Islamic Domination
In Islam, peace does not mean co-existence; it means the West’s submission.
Father George Rutler is sounding the wake-up call to Christians and Western civilization to the threat of Islamic domination. We must respond to terrorist attacks with more than the balloons and flowers of the grieving.
Citing the Catechism of the Catholic Church (#2265), he writes that defending against the evil of Islam is not only a right but a Christian duty. He cites several instances throughout history when saints and soldiers rode into battle to successfully defend their nations against the Islamic hordes, thus saving Western civilization.
According to Father Rutler, the danger today, however, is that Western civilization “has grown flaccid in virtue and ignorant of its own moral foundations.”
