When the Muslims were Rioting, Pope Benedict didn't Back Down or Apologize

In 2006, with Muslims firebombing and shooting bullet holes through Christian churches in West Bank, a Italian nun being gunned down in Somali and an Iraqi insurgent group threatening to bomb the Vatican with a suicide attack, Pope Benedict XVI didn't back down.

The pope was being pressured by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, spiritual leader of the world's 200 million Orthodox Christians, to back down. But on Saturday Sept.16, 2006 the Associated Press said:

“Pope Benedict XVI ‘sincerely regrets’ offending Muslims with his reference to an obscure medieval text that characterizes some of the teachings of Islam's founder as ‘evil and inhuman,’The Vatican said Saturday. But the statement stopped short of the apology demanded by Islamic leaders around the globe, and anger among Muslims remained intense.”

On Sunday Sept. 17, AP reported that the pope said "he was 'deeply sorry' about the angry reaction to his recent remarks about Islam, which he said came from a text that did not reflect his personal opinion." (Note he said he was sorry about the Islam reaction.)

This pope was doing the same rope-a-dope that Pope John Paul II did on the Nicaraguan communist regime. Remember how the Sandinistas ill treatment of the Pope revealed their true nature to the world. That was the beginning of the end of Russian Marxist expansion in Latin America. The Muslims betrayed their public relation hoax to the world.

Benedict actually wanted to dialogue with Islam, but he wanted an honest dialogue. He hopes, according to George Weigel in God’s Choice, that Muslim reformers can find from their “authoritative text . . . that it is God’s will that we be tolerant of those who have different understandings of God’s will.”

The Soviet Union lost when it tried to kill Pope John Paul II.

One of the secrets of Fatima was that “several entire nations will be annihilated.”The last living Fatima seer before she died, Sister Lucia, said this prophecy was still in the future. Most of the other Fatima predictions have already come to pass.

Be warned Islam and all anti-Christian rioters. God is not mocked. Remember what happened to the Pharaoh and Egypt when he attacked God’s prophet Moses and God's people.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
