As I made my usual rounds in Catholic cyberspace today, I was anxiously hoping and praying that somebody, anybody, would be as outraged and aghast as I am about what is happening to the people of Gaza. But with a couple of notable exceptions, all I hear is crickets out in tradland. Where is the outrage? Where is the moral indignation at the slaughter of the innocents? Have we become Christian Zionists? I am shocked and embarrassed that Catholics, with the exception of (you go, girl!) are not spitting nails, pulling out their hair, and leading the charge against this now 7-day atrocity. And on Jesus Christ’s own turf!
What is wrong with you people? Can you not take one day off from obsessing over Fatima and calling for the (now past its time) consecration of Russia, and focus on the here and now? Could you please stop splitting hairs for just one day over whether the Novus Ordo Mass is valid or whether the Pope is the Pope or if we should accept the Motu proprio? It seems you just can’t find it in your hearts to stop fussing like a gaggle of old geese while innocent civilians are being massacred in the Holy Land (with our tax dollars). So I’m just going to come right out and say it: if you cannot muster up enough charity in your (sanctimonious) hearts to express horror at the genocide of the Palestinian people, then please do me a favor and shut the **** up. Yes, I said it. I don’t want to hear you parsing like anymore over meat on Fridays or EENS. In fact, you might as well have yourselves a big, fat steak every Friday night because you’re probably going to hell anyway. I swear this makes me long for the Novus Ordo church where at least they still have charity in their hearts and care for their fellow man. Why can’t we have Latin and charity?
Because you see, I am convinced that the genocide being perpetrated against the long-suffering people of Palestine is a litmus test from God Himself for people who call themselves Christians. Remember when Jesus said He came to draw a line in the sand? (Or something like that, you know what I mean!) Let’s just say, He came to separate the wheat from the chaff. If you are wheat, you are moved to tears over the plight of the Palestinian people, so long denied the right of return, so long unjustly labeled as terrorists and aggressors, so long without the sympathy of the international community (for fear of the Jews). Yet how dignified, how brave, and yes, how alive, they are! They still get married and have lots of babies, right in the middle of a war zone! This is the sign of a still healthy people with a very sturdy faith. Can we at last acknowledge that their only “crime” was to have lived for centuries on some very hotly contested real estate? Only the chaff would deny them their right to live in peace with dignity..
Now, on to my Christian Zionist “friends” (and I use the word ‘friends’ loosely), please consider a word of advice from a member of the “Whore of Babylon.” You know, the Church that chose the books of the New Testament in the first place? If you had stuck with us, you wouldn’t have ended up as Zionists and snake handlers. But be that as it may, go to your Bibles right now, since I’m sure you have a (mistranslated from the Vulgate) KJV nearby. Put your fingers between the Old Testament and the New, and tear the Old Testament portion out of the Book. I mean, just rip the freakin’ thing out. Re-familiarize yourselves with the New Testament, starting with the parable of the Good Samaritan. You see, the Old Testament represents the , and the represents the . The New Covenant supercedes the Old, or else Christ has died in vain. So you are essentially reading a now-defunct document whose only purpose was to point to the Messiah. But all that’s over now, get it? The whole temple thing, the whole Old Testament thing, the whole red heifer thing, it’s done. The Messiah already came 2,000 years ago. You do still believe that, don’t you? Jesus specifically said regarding the temple that not one stone would be left upon another, and that’s exactly what happened in A.D. 70 when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem.
By supporting the bogus, anti-Christ state of Israel, you put to the lie the words of Christ Himself and show yourselves the allies of His enemies. How could you possibly think that Jesus would want you to aid and abet Israeli terrorists as they deliberately seek to prove Jesus a liar and a fraud? Have they changed their views about Jesus? Do you think they wouldn’t crucify Him again? Jesus said His kingdom was not of this world, and for this, out of racial pride and ambition, the Israelites had Him crucified and have set out to build their own kingdom of this world. Only, their worldly kingdoms always end up getting millions of people killed, which is slightly contradictory to the commandment Jesus gave to “love one another.” But then, after years of marinating in the now-defunct Old Testament, while glossing over the New, you’ve now taken on the spirit of the anti-Christ and the charity in your hearts has grown cold. That’s how you can watch the genocide of innocent women and children and whoop it up for their killers, because you have sided with the killers of Christ Himself. You have become accessories (to genocide) after the fact. As I implied to my own co-religionists above, don’t sell the farm just yet, baby. Don’t bank on the fact that your machinations will force God to send Jesus back down and beam you up in the Rapture. Pride cometh before the fall. Because in the end, you just might find yourselves surpised to see a motley crew of penitent sinners, the least of all His brethren, but with peace and charity in their hearts, limping across the finish line to heaven, as your sorry a$$es get LEFT BEHIND.
Now, on to my Jewish “friends” (and I use the word ‘friends’ here very loosely), now is the time to show the world that it really is true that “not all Jews….” Because I’m sick of hearing from certain apologists (who shall remain nameless) that it really isn’t all Jews, just the bankers, or the “Satanists,” or the Sabbateans, or whatever happens to be the label du jour to obfuscate the “J” word. Since the so-called Christians have dropped the ball so badly on the Gaza atrocity, you might as well take advantage of the situation, see? Pick up the ball and run with it, get some good PR, and you just might convince people that it really isn’t all Jews. And then it would be nice if you would at least consider that Jesus really was the Messiah, but we can talk about that later.
In closing, let all Christians recall that another group got uppity about being God’s favorites, too, and salvation was taken away and given to others. So don’t think you’ve “got it in the bag,” especially if you have no charity for the least of His brothers. And I would submit to you that the Palestinians are the least, in the sense that people are afraid even to speak of the injustices perpetrated against them. Gaza or the Israeli Beast. Christ or anti-Christ. That is the litmus test. Which side are you on?
