Winning the war with language.

Make no mistake the war is for the mind…and can only be won with it. In the present war against the demonic homosodomite* agenda ( a war we are totally losing) I propose at least one simple tactic that every single concerned Catholic can implement right now and for the rest of their lives.

“They seem to want to obfuscate the meaning of words. Step into the stream of what gay means or homosexual means or same-sex attraction means and you find you step with them into a fun house mirror. It seems to me that the truth of things, including the meaning of words, ought to be clear, precise, even simple. Confusion is the sign of something else gong on, perhaps something troubling”.Austin Ruse- Austin Ruse has been head of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) since 1997

Reality Check: What does the Church really say?

“In a gesture of bridge-building with the Muslim world, the 77-year-old pontiff closed his eyes in silent prayer as he stood next to Istanbul’s chief mufti, Rahmi Yaran. The two men, both dressed in white, faced east towards Mecca, in what Father Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman, described as ‘a moment of silent adoration.'” –The Daily Telegraph

“… if anyone were to…worship at the tomb of Mahomet, he would surely be deemed an apostate.” –St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Pt. II, Q. 12, A. 1, Obj. 2.

“There is also the superstition of the Ishmaelites which to this day prevails and keeps people in error, being a forerunner of the Antichrist…. From that time to the present a false prophet named Mohammed has appeared in their midst. This man, after having chanced upon the Old and New Testaments and likewise, it seems, having conversed with an Arian monk, devised his own heresy. Then, having insinuated himself into the good graces of the people by a show of seeming piety, he gave out that a certain book had been sent down to him from heaven. He had set down some ridiculous compositions in this book of his and he gave it to them as an object of veneration. –St. John Damascene.

“Moreover, we determine to subject to excommunication believers who receive, defend, or support heretics.” Saint Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica:  “And consequently, when once grace had been revealed, all were bound to explicit faith in the mystery of the Trinity.” Heretics do not have the same God, the same Christ, as do Catholics. (Tertullian) He who is not with Me is against Me. (St. Matthew 12:30) Outside are dogs, and sorcerers, and the unchaste, and murderers, and servers of idols, and every one who loves and makes a lie. (Apocalypse 22:15)”  –Pope Innocent III, Fourth Lateran Council, 1215.

“It is an insult to the holy name and a disgrace to the christian faith that in certain parts of the world subject to christian princes where Saracens live, sometimes apart, sometimes intermingled with Christians, the Saracen priests commonly called Zabazala, in their temples or mosques, in which the Saracens meet to adore the infidel Mahomet, loudly invoke and extol his name each day at certain hours from a high place, in the hearing of both Christians and Saracens and there make public declarations in his honour. There is a place, moreover, where once was buried a certain Saracen whom other Saracens venerate as a saint. A great number of Saracens flock there quite openly from far and near. This brings disrepute on our faith and gives great scandal to the faithful. These practices cannot be tolerated any further without displeasing the divine majesty.  We therefore, with the sacred council’s approval, strictly forbid such practices henceforth in christian lands. We enjoin on catholic princes, one and all, who hold sovereignty over the said Saracens and in whose territory these practices occur, and we lay on them a pressing obligation under the divine judgment that, as true Catholics and zealous for the christian faith, they give consideration to the disgrace heaped on both them and other Christians. They are to remove this offence altogether from their territories and take care that their subjects remove it, so that they may thereby attain the reward of eternal happiness. They are to forbid expressly the public invocation of the sacrilegious name of Mahomet. They shall also forbid anyone in their dominions to attempt in future the said pilgrimage or in any way give countenance to it. Those who presume to act otherwise are to be so chastised by the princes for their irreverence, that others may be deterred from such boldness. —Pope Clement V, Council of Vienne, 1311-1312.
