Despite the constant p.c. rhetoric about Islam being a “religion of peace,” the facts of history don’t agree. And no amount of feckless roundtable dialogue initiatives will gloss over the plain truth. Islam is a death cult, and our Saints knew this better than anyone. Don’t believe me? Take a look at some of these quotes throughout the centuries. You’ll quickly start to see a persistent theme. The Saints never made convenient distinctions so commonly heard today between so-called “radical” Islam vs. Islam. The Saints realized the core, undiluted teachings of Islam were evil and said so in clear denunciations, like the ones you’ll read here.
“Whoever does not embrace the Catholic Christian faith is lost, like your false prophet Muhammad.” -St. Peter Mavimenus (d. 8th century), martyr from Gaza
“We profess Christ to be truly God and your prophet to be a precursor of the Antichrist and other profane doctrine.”-Sts. Habenitus, Jeremiah, Peter, Sabinian, Walabonsus, and Wistremundus (d. 851), martyrs of Cordoba, Spain.
“Any cult which denies the divinity of Christ, does not profess the existence of the Holy Trinity, refutes baptism, defames Christians, and derogates the priesthood, we consider to be damned.”-Sts. Aurelius, Felix, George, Liliosa, and Natalia (d. 852), martyrs of Cordoba, Spain.
“Even if all the things contained in his law were fables in philosophy and errors in theology, even for those who do not possess the light of reason, the very manners (Islam) teaches are from a school of vicious bestialities. (Muhammad) did not prove his new sect with any motive, having neither supernatural miracles nor natural reasons, but solely the force of arms, violence, fictions, lies, and carnal license. It remains an impious, blasphemous, vicious cult, an innovention of the devil, and the direct way into the fires of hell. It does not even merit the name of being called a religion.”-St. Juan de Ribera (d.1611), Archbishop of Valencia, missionary to Spanish Muslims, and organizer of the Muslim expulsions of 1609 from Spain.
“The Mahometan paradise, however, is only fit for beasts; for filthy sensual pleasure is all the believer has to expect there.”St. Alfonsus Liguori (d. 1787). Quoted from his book, The History of Heresies and their Refutation.
Pretty straight forward. I doubt these Saints would make it on a Sunday morning talk show with Chuck Todd. And I sincerely doubt they were sitting down to a “simple vegetarian meal” at their medieval or Counter-Reformation version of an “Amazing faith conference” in Cordoba, while sipping Sangria and reveling in the multicultural canard of religious relativism and non-offensive interfaith dialogue.
The image and passage below were taken from an archdiocesan website.
At Amazing Faith Dinner Dialogues people of all faiths and no faith, all spiritualities and philosophies gather in small groups to share a simple vegetarian meal and participate in a moderated discussion using a proven model, evoking deep exchanges about lived experiences and the role of faith or spirituality in their lives. Through exploration and dialogue, participants learn about the beliefs and traditions of others within an atmosphere of respect and understanding, and are empowered to stand as witnesses for tolerance.
For the past few years, I’ve spent a great deal of time absorbing as much as I can about the tenets and history of Islam. We need to educate ourselves about Islam, its doctrines, and its violent history so that we can teach others about its theology of abject hatred and intolerance toward all “nonbelievers”. Since the inception of Islam, Western Civilization has almost been destroyed dozens of times by marauding armies attempting to conquer the world for Allah. Ask the Greeks and they’ll tell you about their experience.
It’s imperative that we continue researching Islam for the sake of our civilization today.
