I often say, “when tolerance becomes a one way street, it leads to cultural suicide,” and it appears we have a very appalling example to share. It just never ceases to amaze me how we are so bent on political correctness when it comes to acquiescing our Judeo-Christian faith heritage before Islam. We have these “coexist” bumper stickers that should read “submit”…or even better, “Dhimmi.”As reported by Breitbart.com, “Parishioners visiting a church in Italy were told they must “pray in silence” so as not to disturb African migrants being housed there. Some of the faithful hoping to practice their Christianity at the church of St. Anthony in Ventimiglia were surprised when they were told by Caritas volunteers they couldn’t recite the rosary and would instead have to pray in silence out of respect to migrants who are living there.
Caritas is ostensibly a Catholic charity, although much of its resources are spent on facilitating mass migration to Europe; the organization even boasts that it contributes to and seeks to influence European Union (EU) “asylum” policies. Caritas reports that they have been distributing 600 meals a day to migrants in Ventimiglia.
After one of the female parishioners requested that the migrants be taken to another church so that she could recite the rosary, the parish priest, Don Rito, appeared and accompanied her and the other visitors to another church.
The Northern Italian town of 55,000 people has recently been overwhelmed with hundreds of migrants. More than 50 Africans have been crossing into Ventimiglia every day, hoping that from there they will be able to enter France. The town’s mayor, Enrico Ioculano, has said that this is “an untenable situation”. Mr. Ioculano has admitted that Ventimiglia is struggling to meet the costs of the migrant influx.”I just have to ask, where is Saudi Arabia in all of this? Apparently someone in the Saudi kingdom, perhaps the royal House of Saud family, had enough money to finance the 9-11 terrorists. So why don’t they have enough money to house and feed their Muslim brethren?
But here’s the real kicker: why are the parishioners of the church told to be silent and suppress their Christian worship? Why did it seem more accommodating to remove the parishioner and take her to another church? Not only are we watching a blatant invasion but also a complete surrender to those who should be so appreciative and seeking out the Lord God of those granting them food and shelter. What misguided sense of political correctness are we witnessing here?
Let me make a simple parallel. Do any of you think if Christian migrants ended up in an Islamic country that imams, clerics, and mullahs would demand that the public call to worship over the muezzin be halted, silenced? Heck, just imagine what would happen here in the United States if some people demanded that the muezzins be silenced. There would be complete and total outrage and calls of Islamophobia and bigotry.Who are these Caritas volunteers who are facilitating the violation of national sovereignty? And are they aware of the threats of Islamic jihadist groups, namely ISIS, to infiltrate the migrant masses?
There is nothing noble about this. It is instead highly disturbing. Surrendering one’s principles and values all for what, some inane sense of multiculturalism?“Breitbart London has previously reported on churches across Europe where welcoming migrants has taken precedence over Christian worship. In Germany, an evangelical church stripped out pews, the altar, and pulpit as well as all symbols of Christianity when offering it as a new home for migrants — so as to make them feel “more welcome in their new home.”
This is not about just stripping out pews and symbols of our Christian faith or silencing our prayer. This is about the abject subjugation and admittance of inferiority. When you invite someone into your home, you don’t remove your furniture and items near to your heart. However, as with the visit of the Iranian delegation to Italy and the Vatican, art pieces were covered so as not to offend. Have we become so ashamed of our culture and civilization?
Remember: when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide — and just look for the comments of the slack-jawed surrender monkeys who will accuse me of promoting hate. It reflects a deranged mind that embraces cowardice and would rather exist on its knees, than stand on its feet.
And that, ladies and gents, is why Secretary of State John Kerry could thank the Iranians for taking care of our ten US Sailors who they put on their knees at gun point…sadly, the progressive socialist left prefers that position.
