Persecution of Catholics in Austria

Read here on the Eponymous Flower the English translation of an article on Kreuz Net (the new site) about what is happening in Austria.

I have already written about the persecution of loyal Catholics going on in Austria when the old Kreuz.Net site was forced to close. It gets worse and worse.

I see in this a typical disease of the German-speaking countries: to insist in doing everything to excess, until they get their ass bombed to persuade them to change their mind.

Still, one wonders how long will it be until the same Nazi mentality penetrates in exactly the same manner the Anglo-Saxon or Southern European societies.

All this, fuelled by the immense stupidity of our time, which puts niceness and hurt feeling above elementary concepts of decency and freedom.

Remember: the worst enemy is the Nazi next door. What is happening in Austria now, might be happening by us in a not too distant future.

  1. In 1937 Pope Pius XI issued his encyclical Mit Brennender Sorge to the German people, a powerful statement of the contradictions between Catholicism and Nazism. Sadly, I do not expect Bishop Bergoglio to take similar action. I suspect that he will turn a blind eye, and will not even rouse himself to issue a mildly critical statement.

  2. There is something disquieting in the world right now with Francis in the Chair of Peter. I shudder when I think of him and am deeply saddened that the abortion vote was coming right up in Brazil after WYD and he remained silent on matter. Not one peep on the evil of killing innocent human life in utero–no reminders to youth, who hunger for bold statements, that abortion is a crime against humanity. No urging youth to go home to their diocese and really make a mess by standing strong for traditional marriage. So many lost opportunities. Nothing but nonsensical pablum.

    • Ah, but it is all nonsense that *makes him more popular*. So, from the prospective of a self-centred Jesuit isn’t so wrong after all…

      By the bye, I have written a blog post dedicated to the latest Brazilian antic you mentioned.

      Truly, this man defies imagination.

      We are being punished.


  3. The Pope’s silence about this evil will be defended by the conservative catholic collective as an act of wise prudence – If he said something he would make it worse – and then they will close their case by reminding their readers that to suffer for Faith is a great opportunity for Grace because the conservative catholic collective specialises in the metaphysical alchemy of turning right reason into cowardice.
