How the West Became A Shepherdess of Wolves

Timber_wolves_fighting-300x200 How the West Became A Shepherdess of WolvesOnce upon a time, there was a shepherdess who was charged with keeping her sheep in the pasture and away from the clutch of the terrible wolves. Over the years, the shepherdess worked long and hard at this duty. Despite all her efforts, some sheep occasionally fell victim to the wolves.

One day, however, the shepherdess thought it better to come to an agreement with the wolves. The hard work of keeping the wolves and sheep separate was simply too much for her. It would be much better and easier for all concerned if the wolves could mix peaceably and coexist with the sheep. Mind you, she would keep a careful watch on the wolves to ensure that no sheep was attacked. However, as long as the wolves did not attack the sheep, they would be left free to wander about the pasture mingling with the flock. She would even tie up the sheepdog to avoid misunderstandings.

The wolves thought the arrangement superb and for a while, everything seemed to work out fine with only a few minor incidents here and there. However, the first wolves soon invited other more hostile wolves to join them, and these started to take over the pasture and harass the sheep. The shepherdess redoubled her watch upon the growing number of wolves in the hopes of avoiding a crisis.

One day when the defenseless sheep were resting, a wolf, who had never hurt any of the sheep before, rushed to the scene and brutally killed some of them. The shepherdess let loose the sheepdog who killed the offending wolf. The whole pasture was shocked. Many had seen the wolf in past days acting completely normal. They could not understand what had caused the wolf to act in such a manner. The sheep upbraided the shepherdess for failing to read the signs of crisis inside the soul of the dead wolf. Others searched for evidence that the wolf had been mistreated by the sheep, causing it to become bitter and resentful. Still others claimed this incident was merely the action of a lone wolf and hardly represented the sentiments of the others.

In the end, the shepherdess visited the site of the incident and urged all, wolves and sheep alike, to unite together to denounce such random acts of violence. She promised to be more careful in the future when allowing new wolves in. She said she would redouble her watch on the wolves to avoid this terrible tragedy from ever reoccurring.

The story does not end happily ever after. The sequence of events repeated itself continually until life for the sheep became unbearable and the wolves had installed a reign of savagery and terror.

One cannot help but feel a similarity between the story above and the recent spate of terrorist attacks in London and other places. Healthy societies take measures to keep out bad elements who subvert the general peace and endanger the safety of their citizens.

What Does Saint Thomas Say About Immigration?

But the West has abandoned this policy of exclusion for one of inclusion, that welcomes those that have declared their intent to destroy the remnants of Christian order.  It takes no mysterious process to identify these rogue elements. Radical Islamists mock the West by openly admitting their hatred in publications, websites and social media. In addition, they invite even more radical elements to come from outside the country to swell their ranks

The preferred government policy is to monitor the behavior of the radicals. Indeed, many of the attackers are “known” by the police to be security threats before they attack innocent civilians in the streets. There are many more “known” suspects that even now live undisturbed in many cities, and their number is growing. As this is allowed to develop, it must inevitably reach a point where no police force in the world will have the resources to monitor all the dangerous individuals. At this point, they will strike and kill.

Something must be done to denounce and stop this policy of appeasement. It must be based on the premise that there are sheep and there are wolves. Wolves can always be counted upon to act like wolves if given the opportunity to strike.

What Does Saint Thomas Say About Marriage?

Those in government who are remiss in their duty to eradicate the wolves and content themselves with just monitoring them become partially responsible for their crimes. Their complicit hands become stained with the blood of the sheep. They should at least be honest and admit that they have now become shepherdesses of wolves, not sheep.

  • Christian Howlett

    I agree that the government shouldn’t just keep watching the terrorists and giving them an opportunity to act like wolves, but I do think our immigration policy should remain inclusive. It is outrageous that for a short time president Donald Trump had banned all immigration from 7 countries in the Middle East, just because they have a lot of Muslims. There are terrorists in all religions, and singling Islam as a whole as a “terrorist religion” is extremely ignorant and unacceptable.

    • Crusader 2013

      Please point out where the Christian terrorists are currently active?

      • Christian Howlett

        I do not extensively study current events, so I do not know any, but the crusades are an excellent example of Christian terrorists.

        • JusticeForTheUnborn

          The Crusades are NOT a Christian example of terrorism!!! Read real history. The Crusades are an example of trying to stop the militant Muslims from pushing further into Europe and forcing conversion to their “religion”!!!! And then they pushed them back out of Europe and the Holy land…for a time.

        • Donald Hennen

          That’s a myth. The crusades were a defensive war against an imperialism that had, by then, conquered by force two thirds of Christendom. As in all war, there were messy incidents that did not square with the original objectives, but you’ve been misled by postmodern revisionist history.

        • Deidra Fraser

          The crusades were not acts of Christian terrorism. Let’s make sure we know what we’re talking about. Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” There is a lot that can be dissected in this definition, but most relevant to the discussion of crusades is legal status. The crusades were wars waged by states upon states – they had legal standing as such.
          A little more on the crusades.
          The below discussion is paraphrased or quoted from Diane Moczar’s “Seven Lies About Catholic History”:
          The crusades were a response to unprovoked Muslim aggression against Christian states; defensive actions to counter the enslavement, killing and persecution of Christians – both pilgrims and Christians living in lands that had recently come under the control of Muslims through conquest. They were a military answer to a military attack.
          There is a wide body of scholarship available on this subject. I recommend you familiarize yourself with some quality analyses. Be sure to check up on the scholars you are reading, so you can assess their reliability and become aware of any apparent prejudices.
          If you don’t want to, or don’t have the time to do this study yourself, reference what the saints have said about the crusades. Which one of them has been critical of the crusades as an enterprise? I do not believe you will find any. Of course atrocities were committed and have been condemned. All who participated in the sack of Constantinople were excommunicated by the pope for attacking Christians. But the enterprise of the crusades has not been condemned by the saints. Many, many saints were directly involved, including two popes who called crusades.

          • Tony

            The Crusades gave their life to protect the Holy Land and to stop the Muslims back then to take control of this place and invade Europe. Yes, the early Christians of the Middle East disappeared because the crusades lost the battle, Crusades were needed back then. The article is acceptable, but we need to be careful how to deal with immigration. There are poor Christian countries seeking to migrate to a better place to help their families, the opportunities never there for them!!! Ask the administration why migrants should be Muslims only!!! If we take a look at Europe, Christianity almost not there and we see more Muslims than real Christians. I give respect to the Muslims as they are holding tight to their religion and not like Modern Christians they care less about their faith. We, so called Christians, do not deserve our Christ. What is happening to the Christian countries is because of our sins… We need to go back to order and elect real Christian leaders

        • John Palmer

          The Crusades are the only reason Western Civilization survived the Muslim onslaught that Africa still suffers from. North Africa used to be Christion, as was most of Turkey, Syria, etc… We Catholics have all suffered from poor catechesis in the Church since Vatican II, and unfortunately, your remark about the Crusades is all too common-place. You are reciting a lie told by Muslims, Protestants and Secularists (atheists) about the Church for centuries. The modern notion that the Crusades were “an evil” is so common in our culture that even some priests echo it on occasion. While it is undeniable that certain evils and atrocities took place during the Crusades (atrocities have occurred in every war humanity has ever waged – flawed humanity), these events do not negate the absolute necessity of that military action. It wasn’t just a movement to protect the Pilgrim Road and take back the Holy Land, it was absolutely necessary for the defense of what was left of what is now modern-day Europe. Please read “The New Concise History of the Crusades,” by Thomas F. Madden (probably foremost modern historian on the subject), and “God’s Battalions” by Rodney Stark. You could also try to find “The Crusades, The World Debate” by Hilaire Belloc.

        • Stanislav

          What nonsense!

    • John Palmer

      Having spent more than three years of my life in the Middle East, Learning about Islam, the so-called “religion of peace,” and having survived a terror attack on our compound, I can tell you that you are being naïve in the extreme if you think Islam isn’t a religion of world domination. And, NO, other religions don’t have terrorists! Only Islam preaches murder of infidels. There are psychos everywhere, even amongst us Christians, but they are operating outside of our religion. We don’t own them the way Islam owns its Jihadists. You should read a good biography of Muhammed. He was nothing but a sex-crazed, power-hungry, mass murderer. He was a letch and a pedophile. There was nothing good or honorable about the man. He was certainly not a prophet of God!

      • Christian Howlett

        There certainly are terrorists or rather religious extremists in other religions, that use violence to spread their “religious” agenda. There are even followers of Judaism who are religious extremists, and have done such atrocities that they have been banned from Israel. I am not supporting Islam in any way and I am a Catholic myself, but I am saying it is unjust to label all Muslims are terrorists. I am sorry you had to endure an attack by the growing number of Muslims who do become religious extremists, and I think we cannot allow our government to do nothing to deal with the problem of terrorism in the world. I just also urge that we do not remain uneducated on this topic and call Islam a religion of world domination that encourages terrorism. This is simply not true, and you need only to read “I am Malala” to know this.

        • John Palmer

          Be careful, I have known many “good” Muslims. My life was in the hands of a “good” Muslim when we were extracted from our compound in Saudi Arabia while it was under attack. The issue is that we want to believe that Muslims don’t really want to hurt us. We want to believe its just a few bad apples who are misinterpreting their religious texts. But if you study Islam, read the history, read the Koran, read the Hadith and other Islamic texts, you will see that the “ideal” Muslim looks almost exactly like Osama bin Laden (of course, the terrorist mystique is a modern form of the Jihad). Most people who practice Islam (thankfully), do not want to be suicide bombers or murder innocents, and we call these people “good” Muslims. But, to an orthodox Muslim, these people are as unworthy as the infidels. At best, the so-called “good” Muslims are mediocre and minimalist in their faith. They would be like our lukewarm, non-practicing, under-educated, Catholic brethren who can’t find their way to Holy Mass on Sunday. But, because of the absolute call of Islam for world domination, we need these millions of Muslims to remain lukewarm in their faith. If they were ever to be united under a charismatic ruler who preached orthodox Islam, the world would be in big trouble! I’m sure Malala is a “good” person, but who knows; after all, Mohammed told his followers it was okay to lie to infidels.

        • Hugh Miller

          Spain, a Catholic country was conquered by Islam in AD 711 and 712 only 80 years after the founder of Islam died in 632. And before that all of North Africa less than 100 years after Islam was founded. In 732, only 20 years later the Muslims invaded France but were defeated by Charles Martel in the Battle of Tours. The Turks tried again in the Battle of Lepanto and before Vienna by a Polish army in later times. Now we have an invasion of Muslim refugees because of alleged wars between their sects. Uhm! Have they found a new way of conquering the now decadent and West that has lost its Christian piety and love of Christ?

        • Pamela Rich

          Have you read their holy book? If not please do so.

      • Hugh Miller

        Muham supposedly received much of his religious system from the angel, St. Gabriel. Uhm! Unless St. Gabriel has a Dr. Jaekle and Mr. Hyde personality which his Creator is unaware I would suggest his visitor was none other than the angel of light that illuminated that dark and dingy cave.

        • John Palmer

          I guess Mohammed wasn’t familiar with Galatians 1:8…

        • Jim

          Maybe Muhammad just made the story up out of his own imagination. Maybe he was hallucinating. All we know for sure is that the Angel Gabriel had nothing to do with it.

      • RapistAndFalse ProphetMuhammed

        we do not need to respect these people or support them like how muslims
        support a rapist and a false prophet . We only follow Jesus Christ .
        Jesus Christ did not go around the world murdering people like the false
        prophet muhammed .

    • Donald Hennen

      There are 40 predominantly Muslim countries unaffected by the travel ban. Those countries are home to 90% of the world’s Muslims. To say it’s just because the 7 countries are predominantly Muslim makes no sense, in light of that. What the banned countries have in common that other countries do not is that they are battlefields containing combatants who make no secret of their desire to come here and make trouble from within.

      • William Shelley

        I am a patriotic, Christian Marine Corps veteran of Desert Storm. I have studied Islam & it’s history & while I bear no illwell towards Muslims, as a whole, Islam is not a Religion of Peace. Groups, like ISIS are a threat, which must be eliminated, as all terrorist groups should be.

    • Tom Yeoman

      Check out Dearborn, Michigan. It has a large, homogeneous population of conformist Muslims — thus, it may have “no-go” zones for outsiders.

    Mr. Horvat, you have summarized our entire immigration/invasion problem with your parable. The false shepardess should have been executed for treason.

  • Frank Cicero

    Muhammad married a old dog because she was rich and proceeded to marry a 11 year old girl along with other women. How many times have you seen or heard of a Buddhist strap a bomb around his waist or commit acts of terrorism ? Muslims are a dis ease which needs to be exterminated from American soil. If you cannot tell which muslim is good or bad then all must go. Muslims and Chinese are the communists of America that will bring us down unless we stop passing the buck by being a loyal American who is willing to step up and forward to end this nonsense. You should also keep in mind that liberalism is far more dangerous than communism and those people need the fear of God in their useless asses.

    • Paul Tran

      Actually, Buddhists have committed atrocities too. I believe in places like Sri-Lanka, Burma, Thailand etc …

      • Jim

        Are those particular Buddhists soon to take over Europe anytime soon?

        • Paul Tran

          While I agree the current threat is from Islam, but given time one never knows ? We saw how the Vietnamese Buddhist population (which is the majority) oppressed Catholics and even worked hand in hand with the Communists to persecute the Catholics.

      • RapistAndFalse ProphetMuhammed

        and they are not going around the world murdering people in the name of Buddha , they are fighting for their land and freedom in their own country . They are not bothering other people like the islamic parasites

        • Paul Tran

          Not quite, in Sri Lanka and Burma the Buddhists are committing murders. Recently we saw the release of a movie by Martin Scorsese about early Christian Japanese being persecuted by the Shinto Buddhist Japanese I believe. Although in some cases we could say they are fighting for their homeland, but Buddhist teaching also is about respecting life.

          • RapistAndFalse ProphetMuhammed

            but fact is they are not going around the world killing in the name of Buddha or what ever god they have . As long as they are minding their own business and religion in their own country .

          • Paul Tran

            Buddhism does NOT have a god, Buddha was a mortal & a prophet. He died , was cremated and his ashes divided to different parts of the regions that followed him. If your logic is that the atrocities they perpetrated are mainly contained in their country, then should we have turned a blind eye to the holocaust ? Or still, should we ignore what the Iranian Shia’s are doing by building a caliphate ?

          • RapistAndFalse ProphetMuhammed

            Holocaust was required because the Jewish bankers were trying to enslave the entire Europe . Hence Hitler took back his nation from these bankers . That too Holocaust was all lies spread by the jews that 6 millions were killed . There were only the elite bankers Jews who were killed . If you have any logic then if 6 million died , how come today 10 million are Jews if the entire population of the Jews were finished ?

          • Mike44R

            Your entire post is pure CRAP! It is quite obvious that you are filled with as much hatred as the Islamist terrorists. What, pray tell, has a gassed 3 year old jewish child have to do with “jewish bankers enslaving Europe”. You must be one of those terrorist neo-nazi types and, therefore, are as dangerous as ISIS.

          • RapistAndFalse ProphetMuhammed

            these Jewish bankers are ruling the banking system till today . The bogus federal Reserve is ruled by the Jews . Banking system is a big hoax . Its just currency printed out of thin air .

      • Kristina Mukda

        Muslims in southern Thailand decapitate Buddhist monks and regularly bomb train stations. This has been going on for years and no one knows about it because the lamestream media doesn’t report it

        • Paul Tran

          Sure, the Muslims in Thailand perpetrated atrocities but the Buddhists were doing the same to them, neither side is right. However the original point made was that even Buddhists’ hands are not clean when it comes to acts of atrocities.

          • Kristina Mukda

            I haven’t heard about any atrocities committed by Buddhists. The only reason I know about what’s happening is because my husband’s family is from Sungai Golok. The muslims there are separatists and want the three southernmost provinces to be ceded to Malaysia.

          • Paul Tran

            To find out about Buddhist atrocities, you can always google for it and check it out. I am sure you have heard of the recent release of Martin Scorsese movie about how earl Japanese Catholics were persecuted by the Shinto Japanese.

          • Kristina Mukda

            I should have clarified that I meant in Thailand. I have certainly heard about persecution of Christians in India (though that’s mainly Hindi, not Buddhist), as well as Rohingya Muslims persecuted in Burma…

          • Paul Tran

            My original point is that the Buddhists too have their hands drenched in blood despite their profession to valuing all life. In Vietnam during the war Buddhists actively colluded with the Communists to eradicate Catholics. What sort of religion that would allow such practice of self-immolation yet professes to value life ? And that’s only the start …

          • RapistAndFalse ProphetMuhammed

            Muslims are going around the world murdering and bombing in the name of satan Allah , Buddhist are not bothering other people in some different country going there and killing in the name of Buddha

          • Paul Tran

            I agree that for the moment that Buddhists are not going into other countries bombing, killing and terrorizing other people. However where they perpetrate acts of atrocities these are done in a form of nationalism, their version of a Islam “caliphate”.

          • Susan

            Probably being older than some of you, I remember the Vietnam War and the many incidents of violence of Buddhists and yes, many were coalescing with the Communists. The Christian French had been in power and the Buddhists wanted to wipe out Christianity so they hooked up with the Reds. I remember they used to set themselves and others on fire.

          • Paul Tran

            Spot-on ! The Vietnamese Buddhists were just as blood-thirsty as the Communists. Little did they realize the promises made to them by the Communists were empty words as they later found out. What kind of religion that professes in the value of life yet supports the practice of self-immolation ?

      • James

        You are right
        All false religions will always lead to some deep seethed evil
        The reason we see Islam in this light is because by the nature of their religion the must spread, please look up hijra

        • Paul Tran

          Spot-on, it is true that it is the mission of Islam is to spread their ideology through subjugation of all unbelievers by force if necessary. Their aim is to eradicate all other faiths.

    • Anthony Rader

      You know, Frank, there also have been terrorists of Catholic persuasion in the not so distant past. What if people dealt with all Catholics the way you want to deal with all Muslims? Your article, Mr. Horvat, doesn’t seem to have brought out the best side of people.

      • Johann du Toit

        The only Catholic terrorist ever was Guy Fawkes. If you are referring to the IRA and Sin Fein, they are influenced by Marxism and Irish Ethnic Nationalism. Many of their members are agnostics and Atheists. They are not a “Catholic” group, or even any more “Christian” than the their Loyalist counterparts.

        • RapistAndFalse ProphetMuhammed

          Guy Fawkes or who ever fakes … we do not need to respect these people or support them like how muslims support a rapist and a false prophet . We only follow Jesus Christ . Jesus Christ did not go around the world murdering people like the false prophet muhammed .

        • David M.Lord

          Guy Fawkes was a product of the Protestant genocide against Catholics

          • Johann du Toit

            True so one might also argue Fawkes was a freedom fighter as opposed to a terrorist from a different point of view. But not a single other Catholic in history was motivated to commit an act of violence based on his beliefs, which was the point I was trying to make. And I do not include Catholics who resisted oppression by force (such as the Cisteros in Mexico) as their conduct was justifiable as legitimate self defence and also justifiable according to the just war doctrine.

        • Anthony Rader

          You gotta be kidding. ‘Ilaga is a Catholic Extremist group who are anti-Islam based in southern Philippines. The group is predominantly composed of Visayans (mostly Ilonggo), embracing a form of Folk Catholicism that utilizes amulets and violence. The group committed its bloodiest act on June 19, 1971, when the group killed 70–100 Moro civilians inside a mosque.’ Quoted from Wikipedia.

          • David M.Lord

            Of course anyone is capable! But Islams violence is one of its basic tenets! The Church doesn’t advocate violence in its dogmas! You just said a mouthful. They are a fringe group that mixes folk religion with some Catholicism. They are hardly mainstream, whereas Sharia and Sunni Islam are, and they advocate violence to spread their faith!

          • Anthony Rader

            Very true that Islam and Catholicism are very different. Human beings aren’t though, Muslim or Catholic. As Catholic Christians we are supposed to recognize the dignity instilled by God in all mankind. You may not believe or follow the tenants of the Islamic faith, but you are called to respect the dignity of an Islamic follower. Despite what you believe to be the tenants of Islam, not all Muslims are terrorists and it is the same for Catholics. Lumping all Muslims together and branding them as terrorists is disrespectful. It would be like lumping all southern white protestants together and saying they were white supremacists or members of the Ku Klux Klan. This kind of thinking can only lead to injustice.

          • RapistAndFalse ProphetMuhammed

            NO! ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS BECAUSE THEY ARE FOLLOWING A RAPIST AND A MURDERER AND A FALSE PROPHET . MUHAMMED WAS A PROPHET OF SATAN

        • peter f

          Guy Fawkes was born a protestant and became a Catholic. He was in a group of Catholics who stood up against oppression of the faith, there were in their number some of the aristocracy who were also willing to stand up against this oppression. Good on them. He confessed after being tortured and was hung drawn and quartered. I think there could be an argument for them being martyrs. There were quite a few here in England. Good queen Bess was far more bloody than Mary, queen of Scots who was also a victim of Elizabeth 1. I understand Mary was a good and faithful Catholic. There has been so much anti Catholic propaganda over the centuries and there still is. Viva Cristo Rey!

          • Johann du Toit

            Good post, except I must note Fawkes jumped off the scaffolding with the noose around his neck to cheat his executioners out of the opportunity to hang, draw and quarter him. Must have taken a lot of guts.

      • RapistAndFalse ProphetMuhammed

        AND WE DO NOT RESPECT AND FOLLOW ANY TERRORIST LIKE MUHAMMED . WE ONLY FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND GOD . THOSE CATHOLIC TERRORISTS WILL BE TAKEN CARE BY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WHO SO EVER THEY MIGHT BE .

      • celtic cross

        Only problem: Islam commands its followers to deceive the non-believers, among other evil commands within the koran. Watch Anni Cyrus’s video on Taqiyya and Tawriya, where she explains how lying is okee dokee with followers of the “prophet”.

        • Anthony Rader

          I am aware of what is in the Koran, but that doesn’t mean we have to do the same. We are supposed to be the ”light of the world and the’ salt of the earth’. Kicking Muslims out of the country because we are afraid of them clearly isn’t an example of living up to what we are supposed to be, is it? We are supposed to be better than that.

          • celtic cross

            The muzzie population in the U.S. needs to stay below 1%, and you need to read the article ‘Jihad by the Numbers’ to find out how islame manifest itself based on population percentage. Wherever they infest themselves in numbers greater than 2% of the population, they are nothing but trouble to the invaded country. And since we already have at least 1%, and considering they procreated like rabbits, they can take their evil cult and go find somewhere else to conquer.

          I dare say he was referring to such Roman Catholics as “Bloody Mary” and of the Insurrection, as well as, in more recent years, the Catholics in Northern and Southern Ireland in the 20th Century, who committed dire, murderous deeds all in the name of Christianity.

          • David M.Lord

            From the 600’s A.D. till 6/29/17 The Muslims have Catholics beat on murder and mayhem! It’s their religion! As a Protestant or an unbeliever, I suppose you would bring those things up!

The group committed its bloodiest act on June 19, 1971, when the group killed 70–100 Moro civilians inside a mosque.’ Quoted from Wikipedia. Just because we are Catholic doesn’t mean we aren’t capable of such things.

          • RapistAndFalse ProphetMuhammed

            Ilagais not going around the world murdering people in the name of Christ . They are protecting their land from these Islamic parasites and only violence these islamic creatures understand . If you care so much for these islamic parasites , then why dont you go and live in some islamic parasite nation like pakistan or afghanistan ,saudi arabia , sudan , etc? I am sure you will like it there .Your ideology matches that culture

        Allways the same argument of people that has no argument!! There is no comparison with the Catholic actions in the past (no matter what they have done) with the islamic bloody terror of our times. Instead of look at the real threat we have today, people prefer to discuss what have been done in the past. Open you yes when still you have time!!! When the slamics take the power, it will be too late to regret!!!

        • Anthony Rader

          I’m not arguing about which religion is better here. I’m simply saying that Muslims are human too. Kicking them out of the country because of their faith is an act of cruelty, something the founder of our Catholic faith wasn’t capable of and indeed shunned. Many of the negative emotions I see shared here are caused by fear. Fear will lead us to do things we shouldn’t. Jesus said, ‘Do not be afraid.’ In essence he is saying to trust in God and act like him. I don’t see too much of that happening here.

          • Roy Smart

            Anthony Rader, educate yourself, Muslims do NOT have a Religion, THEY have a BELIEF, IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT sharia LAW, THAT IS THEIR BELIEFS, A MINDSET THAT THEIR QURAN TELLS THEM, IN SHORT, TO KILL ALL PEOPLE THAT DOESN’T ACCEPT THEIR BELIEFS!!!! IF WE CONTINUE TO LET THE muslims and illegals go, THEN WE WILL BE TAKEN OVER BY KILLERS!!! ANY muslim THAT CARRIES THEIR QURAN IS A POTENTIAL MURDERED OF YOU, AND YOUR WHOLE FAMILY!!!! THEY WORSHIP ALLAH, WHO ISN’T REALLY SO THEY ARE WORSHIPING satan!!!
            That is what my Bible says, there are only two masters, ONE WHO YOU SERVE, GOD ALMIGHTY, OR satan who comes to steal kill and destroy!!!! Bingo!! I hope you receive this as the TRUTH BECAUSE THERE’S NO OTHER CHOICE, PERIOD!!!
            THAT IS EXACTLY WHY THEY SHOULD BE BANNED, JUST LIKE OUR CONSTITUTION STATES!!! PLEASE READ MY POST UP ABOVE!!!!

      “If you cannot tell which muslim is good or bad then all must go.” That sounds harsh and unjust, but it does make sense.

    • Roy Smart

      If we the people do stand up against people like the left, the liberal democraps who fight for illegals and Muslims then we will need to fight them along with the mudslimes and illegals!!!! BUT WE NEED TO START ASAP BECAUSE TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!!!! EVERY DAY IT’S GETTING WORSE AND SOON WE COULD SEE OUR CONSTITUTION REPLACED BY sharia LAW !!! WITHIN OUR CONSTITUTION WE THE PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO STEP IN WHEN THESE THINGS ARE HAPPENING AND THE GOVERNMENT WON’T UPHOLD THE LAW AS THEY HAVE TAKEN THE OATH TO!!!!
      I THOUGHT THE OATH WAS SACRED BUT LOOKS LIKE I MAY BE WRONG!!!! WAKE UP AMERICA AND YOU’LL WAKE UP A GIANT!!!!
      WE CANNOT CRUSH ANYTHING THAT GETS IN OUR WAY!!!! BUT WAKE UP OUT OF YOUR STUPER!!!!

      • Roy Smart

        Cont; I meant to say WE CAN CRUSH ANYTHING THAT GETS IN OUR WAY!!!! HEAD EM UP, MOVE THEM OUTA HERE!!!!

      • Frank Cicero

        Thankfully the NRA is alive and well thanks to our president. The sharia garbage will reach its climax when our armed citizens band together to make their point clear. The military needs to be dispatched to Dearborn Michigan where a no go zones exists and sharia is practiced. They must be eradicated off American soil by whatever means nessecary. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND LONG LIVE OUR CONSTITUTION

    • Anthony Rader

      And Jews were a disease, parasites, that needed to be exterminated from the Third Reich. Listen to yourselves. This isn’t an intelligent conversation. It’s a racist rant similar to the rant in Germany pre WWII.

    • Anthony Rader

      “Muslims are a disease which needs to be exterminated…’ Listen to yourselves. This isn’t an intelligent conversation. It sounds more like the rhetoric delivered by the Nazis against the Jews in the Third Reich. Of course, ISIS uses similar arguments. I thought Muslims were human beings like everyone else.

      • Roy Smart

        You need to be Educated before you comment !!!! If this isn’t an intelligent conversation then you need NOT COMMENT !!!!

  • Paul Tran

    It’s wishful thinking that we could “eradicate the wolves” as they have an inexhaustible amount of “martyrs” simply because their faith is based on violence despite all the talk of it being a religion of peace.

    • THM4Life

      Even if success is not assured, we must try to deter the “wolves” from gobbling up the sheeple. The Israeli, King David, used a sling and rock to fend off predators. Islam is a predatory socio-justice system that must be kept at bay. We must use, first, spiritual warfare to ward off our attackers with prayer and fasting, but that failing we may have to pick our sling and place a few well-aimed stones in the midst of their eyebrows.

      • Paul Tran

        I think we’ll need many stones … (sigh). I read recently an article on how young wolves (between the age of 9 and 12) being brainwashed to kill & murder “infidels” and there seems to be no end of volunteers.

          • Paul Tran

            Quite ! I pray everyday that Islam would renounce violence, and we need to be patient for everything is in The Lord’s hands and we , the faithful, will eventually be victorious.

          • KareemAbdul

            Pray that our Muslim brothers and sisters return to the One True Faith. Our Lady wants this, and she is quietly leading many back through pilgrimages to Fatima, Portugal and chapels set up for them for Our Lady.

            In the end, Her Immaculate Heart will triumph.

          • Paul Tran

            We all live in hope and in prayer, Kareem, we all live in hope and in prayer …

  • Anthony Rader

    This article seems to be geared towards dealing with a potential terrorist threat either in the US or in another country. I can understand strict immigration policies involving the screening of immigrants as a deterrent for this kind of thing. Europe has a problem though with the influx of Muslim refugees in that there are to many to screen or screen efficiently. So, for argument’s sake, let’s say that there are terrorists hiding in the general Muslim population here or there, then the question is how to keep the general population safe? Soon as you start arresting people on suspicion of terrorism, then you have a civil rights problem. They did something like that in England after the Guy Fox incident. Catholics in general took the blame for that terrorist act, even though they had no knowledge of it or supported it. Many of their rights were revoked and they never received full rights for a number of centuries after that. Doesn’t sound right, does it? Really, the only thing a truly democratic government can do other than refusing any immigration, is to screen an immigrant beforehand, then watch for problems in the future. Refusing immigration isn’t going to happen soon though. It has become the chief means to keep population numbers from declining due to a low birth rate. If population numbers deflate then there will be economic chaos. And one must keep in mind that if the police are stretched thin, it isn’t just the terrorists that are causing this. It’s also organized crime, petty crime, domestic abuse etc. In other words, it is a sign of a pretty unhealthy society in general. I don’t know if it’s a good idea to compound that by allowing a police force or vigilante group to have it’s way with suspected terrorists. I’m not saying that terrorism should be tolerated, but that it should be dealt with in a proper way. Other than what we are doing now, I don’t see any other democratic option.

    • Pamela Rich

      Do you actually have a plan to accomplish this? Not that I disagree but it hasn’t been working out really well for many of us to just presume the immigrants are being fully “vetted” before entering, especially with open borders.

      • Anthony Rader

        The plan is to stay the legal course. Either screen all before they enter the country and keep an eye on things or refuse immigrants from Islamic countries because of potential danger. Both of these options are within a country’s rights of sovereignty and are respectful of the dignity of its citizens and immigrants. However, rounding up Muslims already in the country and deporting them isn’t. It is a knee jerk reaction to fear, and would have disastrous consequences in the long run.

        • Pamela Rich

          I wasn’t suggesting to do any illegal or about anyone who is legally in this country, Anthony. How did my response take you down this road?

          • Anthony Rader

            Sorry. I wasn’t suggesting you did, Pamela. You asked how to accomplish keeping a handle on the situation. If I had a plan. I tried to answer that question.

    its not muslim who are the desease. ITS ISLAM! the teachings of islam makes the muslim go bad. islam must be eliminaterd and destroyed. its thats done , then there would be no more muslim. got it?

      So, how do you suggest to do that?

  • Barnpame Barnes

    This proposal is not practical. We can’t profess religious freedom and at the same time suppress it in a major religion, even if it is a dangerous religion. I think a solution is not simple. The Christians have to prove themselves by their lifestyle. As long as we live like heathens, fundamentalists will rise up to abolish disorder. That’s what fundamentalism is for – to restore order.

    Either we will have Christian order or oppression, whether by government or fundamentalism or both. Islam is both.

    I really believe we will be subjects of terror until we truly convert.

    • THM4Life

      Is Islam a religion? I don’t think so. Islam is an enforced socio-judicial system that is incompatible with the Constitution of the United States. Sharia law usurps the rights of individuals and the authority given to duly elected infidels to replace rights and authority with Mohammedan law. The whole Judeo-Christian concept is that our Creator gives us free will to love God and obey His natural order. Islam takes away that freedom and replaces it with authoritarian judges who decide what is acceptable regarding justice and behavior.

      • Barnpame Barnes

        Yes I agree with you but Islam is not the only threat. Atheism, materialism, Puritanism, all of these systems suppress true freedom. That’s all I’m saying. I would say kick out the pornographers and Satan worshippers. We can restrict Sharia law. But I don’t think we can just keep out every wolf. Muslims have a right to their beliefs – maybe not their behaviors but certainly their beliefs. Same as everyone. I’m arguing that the situation is complex.

  • Linda Maria

    Moral decency, along with good manners, good speech, good dress, and good customs, to help make a nice society, of decent Americans– all of this was ignorantly allowed to be abandoned, during the filthy, anti-society, and anti-Christian hippie eral Why in the world I wondered– were these filthy, violent, subversive, anti-American hippies not permanently BANNED from all college campuses, and all society?? And their filthy, highly-dangerous dope, promiscuity, and loud, ugly, anti-society, subversive rock “music,” too! And why on earth, allow PHONY “medical quacks” in the field of medicine– to promote phony, dangerous, highly-destructive “free sex,” promiscuity, abortions, obscene language, pornography, etc.– all over the country, CORRUPTING it beyond belief?? And why the “youth ghetto,” of post-war kids, separated from parents and grand-parents, resulting in a horrible, ignorant, filthy, diabolic “youth society” — in which many kids also died, due to dope and diseases resulting from promiscuity?? Kids should never be wasting time, destroying their lives, in a childish, immature immoral, and extremely dangerous “youth ghetto,” like a bunch of indiscriminate, wild toddlers, without love, guidance, or direction! The teen-age years are a time to study hard in school, learn your manners and your morals well, develop mature social reating skills, grow up, take on responsibility, and make plans for a successful future, as an adult! Graduation from high school should be the point when youth draws to a close– and adulthood is upon you! American democracy is a wonderful thing, a gift of God, paid for dearly, with the blood of our forefathers! There is always the evil, subversive Wolf around every doorstep, ready to devour a good Nation! it has to be guarded carefully and responsibly, and we must diligently work hard to preserve our precious Judeo-Christian heritage– or it can too easily be lost, and destroyed!

    This is all (Behind the scenes-which are real and obvious) a SPIRITUAL WAR. Satan knows his days are numbered and he is now trying to devour even more souls to hell. So what do our Priests and Leaders of the RCC DO? Lets see; we are Now told to be ‘worried’ re; Global warming, Climate Change, Redistribution of (mostly) Americas wealth to third world nations-who have socialists style governments…we are lectured on NOT building walls and to just let in the Entire World when our Debt approaches Twenty Two TRILLION Dollars-this while the ‘leaders’ LIVE BEHIND HUGE WALLS with Armed GUARDS. So DO they preach and NAME SIN? Are you Serious? Of COURSE NOT!!! Nothing is said about Non-Repented SIN being the ONLY thing that stands in the way of Gods’ Mercy, Forgiveness and Grace! Satan KNOWS this and YES he helped to ‘create’ this ‘false’ religion. They Copied the RCC; they have a ‘bible’ , ‘prayer beads’, ‘holy days of obligation’, their ‘bible’ talks about; the creation, some of the old testament figures, etc. BUT THIS ‘RELIGION’ IS FALSE. STRAIGHT FROM THE PITS OF HELL. This ‘religion’ Hates: Jesus Christ, His Mother, the Holy Spirit, Christians, Jews and most everything we as Catholics LOVE…The End of Days approaches. Our Holy Scripture says Israel WILL be abandoned by the entire world. She WILL be attacked and ALMOST defeated, but then GOD will Step in. It says the entire world will cry out for Peace…It says there WILL BE A ONE WORLD GOV>…and then the actual physical person -the antichrist will step onto the World stage. The Scene is NOW being SET. It is happening RIGHT IN FRONT OF our faces! WAKE up. Repent of all your sins. If you do NOT know them…start LOOKING them up yourselves, as the Leaders of the RCC will be HELD accountable before GOD!! Thanks be to God….

    You’re part of the problem Anthony. If you feel that way then go live with them . Take your family and have your daughters be around them , have your children go to school with them . Tell me how that cultural enrichment works out for you

  • StarBaby

    The point of this wolf story speaks to me that we cannot tolerate what is happening presently in Western Europe to prolIferate here in the United States. We have surely been warned with this HORRIFIC PURGE AGAINST INNOCENT EUROPEANS. Firstly, those in charge like Merkle needs to be arrested and put into prison for allowing this harm to penetrate their German culture and society. One rape is too many and on-going Gang Rapes are something out of a horror movie! Sweden is the RAPE capital of the world with Germany coming in second. Paris is a ‘hotbed’ of these people sleeping and defecating on the streets of a once beautiful city. Not to mention we are NOT seeing the news truthfully reporting the attacks against police and citizens, recklessly destroying and setting vehicles on fire!

    These people arriving in foreign countries are NOT Refugees but ‘SAVAGE BEASTS’, mostly young men and very few women and children. It certainly isn’t the point that other religions have done feats of slaughter many hundreds of years ago, this is 2017 and this type of criminal behavior cannot be tolerated by any society. Although we are aware, most of these Muslims are INBREDS over a long period of time and do not demonstrate a high degree of intelligence to then be forcibly inserted with a more advanced western culture. This is the problem. Helping people truly harmed with being in war zones is a ‘Multi Nation Task’ and investment, not to up root those already living peacefully in their own countries. Countries should be financially contributing to this refugee problem moving them to one location until it is safe to return to their homeland again.

    Tax payers of the Western European countries as well as the tax payers here in the USA are being drained to the breaking point. New York State is bringing Muslims in from Somalie and other regions (immirgrants not refugees). The property taxes in the these areas are going up by a couple of thousand dollars each year. Why? These immirgrants are being given welfare, medical, free housing and passports. Not to mention SS Disabilbilty for life? On your TAX DOLLAR? Do you really believe they will work? Demanding seperate prayer rooms and special requests in our colleges.

    We are seeing areas in the USA like Minneapolis MN that look like a FOREIGN MID EASTERN ZONE instead of an American town. They are moving against our laws with ‘female genital mutilation’ and wanting to continue their pagen way of life! Every state in our country should have a law put forth that there will not be any attempt to implement this sick Sharia Law in any state, town or county! They are moving to take over our American Way of Life as they enter politics. Wake Up America and get these laws of protection in place! These peole do not assimulate or integrate, or feel appreciation for the help that has been extended to them. The Mosques should be monitored and English is the language of our county!

    Our immirgration laws should be that one needs to beable to support oneself and family not free hand outs. Real refugees need to helped by being put into a SAFE ZONE set up world wide not individual countries.

    You might be interested in knowing of a recent series of events at Saint Louis University which is one of the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities. Allen West was scheduled to speak in September. The Jesuit president, Lawrence Biondi, had recently been forced into retirement and replaced by a lay president, Fred Pestello.—-Flyers went out on the speech containing the phrase “radical Islam”. Pestello refused to allow their handing out on campus. West then attacked the Muslim Student Association on campus. Pestello then defended the organization. The speech went on as scheduled.—–I was doing research on the event and went to the site for the organization which is slumsa.com. There are deep links to the Islamic Society of North America. I then found an entry attacking Saint Louis IX for June 11.—–There is a current controversy in the City of St. Louis over removal of a Confederate statue in Forest Park. This site states that this is just a preparation for the real target of the statue of Saint Louis who is the patron of the City. Religion is the target of the progressives taking over the City government.—“St. Louis was a cruel person who led to deep historic divisions between people of all faiths. We must remove the Crusader’s statue now. He killed many innocent Muslims and burned the holy books of our Jewish brothers and sisters.”

  • Matamoros

    Great article. If we are not able or willing to protect our civilization, culture, european heritage, religion and, indeed, our families from these wolves we deserve it.

    We must become crusaders again to reestablish Christendom, the rule of law, and protection for our people.

      Remember how Lepanto was won in 1571 – under the guidance and protection of Our Lady. All men given absolution and prayed her Most Holy Rosary.

      They may come with IEDs, bombs, sharia, etc. but they are no match for the Rosary.

      If only people would pray it. God bless you all

      • Matamoros

        Remember also though, saying the Rosary didn’t win the battle.

        They had to go fight it. Anyone who thinks God is going to do everything for them, without their having to step up to the plate and fight, is delusional.

        St. Therese said we must pray as if everything depends upon God, but work as if everything depends upon us. The Catholic ideal of faith and work together.

        The Rosary is, indeed, the most powerful weapon that God has given us against evil.

  • Frank Cicero

    Catholics, Christians, protestants are not virgins of conflict but the fact of the matter is Muslims want to change the dynamics of our Constitution and to legally install sharia law. Just take a look at Dearborn Michigan because that’s exactly what they are doing and military force needs to be placed there to remove the disease of anti American laws.

  • Jessie

    I’m confused about the use of an animal analogy for humans. Sheep will be sheep, and wolves will be wolves, it’s true. But all humans created in God’s image. And all of us are sinners…

    I would rather think of people as people, because we have a rational and self-reflective capacity in addition to a baser animal nature… Every human has the ability to choose wisely based on the information they have available. I wonder if God would be more pleased if we came together to welcome those human “wolves”, who all have the capacity to better themselves, and change, and make wiser decisions.

    It is much easier to throw stones at an animal than at another human. Maybe this is why some people like to think of other people as animals. It’s easy, and we are very used to these kind of teaching metaphors. It’s especially easy if you believe that you are just one of the mild sheep.

    We are not actually sheep. We are human, and we all have the burden of knowledge. We war, we love. We all walk the earth, along with the beasts, and we long to be Home.

  • Cole

    The funny thing though is we haven’t been letting terrorists into US soil. The ones that have committed these acts over the past decade or so after 9/11 have been home grown terrorists. Simply banning whole countries from entering ours even though they must go through extensive background checks and are denied entry if there is any kind of doubt about them solves nothing.
