Translated from the French article after this article into English: 

For several years, the report has been scathing: persecuting a Christian is the favorite game of some. This terror is seen all over the world, in China and in North Korea, the heirs of the glorious hours of the Communist powers continue the low works of their ascendants. In South America, anti-fascist guerrillas hunt down the faithful, whom they assimilate to the capitalist demon. In Africa, in Europe too, Christians are victims of persecution in the name of Islam. The latest figures from the Doors Open NGO Global Persecution of Christians Index are catastrophic. Whereas in 2018, 245 million people were victims of persecution worldwide, in 2019, 260 million people are persecuted because they are Christians … Even if this increase can be put into perspective in light of the drop in the number of people killed (4,305 in 2018, against 2,983 in 2019), it is clear that if we take a global vision and not country by country or region by region , Christians are the most persecuted in the world. Indeed, the crime committed against Rohingyas is unacceptable and unforgivable, but it is confined to Burma. Indeed, the conflicts between Sikhs and Muslims on the one hand and between Shiites and Sunnis in several countries, but also crimes against Yazidis, are just as heinous and unacceptable but they remain limited to a few countries.Every day, very many Christians are persecuted in the world, but as if by magic, a deafening silence covers the atrocities against the faithful; this silence is in the image of the western hypocrisy which bends in front of Islam. Indeed, while Colombia, which is overwhelmingly Catholic, comes in 41st position in the countries where the number of these persecutions is the highest, the top 5 counts Pakistan, Libya, Somalia and Afghanistan, or 4 countries out of 5 Muslims. Burkina Faso, Niger and Cameroon enter the classification and, more generally, persecution is increasing in Africa, especially in West, where, according to the report published by Doors Open, “Islamic extremism is the mechanism of persecution prevailing in these countries ”.Above all, let’s not stigmatize.

BLOGGER’S NOTE:  As they used to say, “Silly Rabbit, its for kids.” Religion is where the moral high ground pretty much comes into play and originated.  I’m sure the ancient Philosophers would have agreed as well.

“A poll by the Pew Research Center found that a record share of Americans now think it is not necessary to believe in God to be moral. Fully 56 percent agree with this conviction, while 42 percent do not.

Regarding the first survey, we know from many studies that there is a positive correlation between religion and well being. For example, the more religious a person is, the healthier and happier that person tends to be.

Its time all women around the world connected for two bonds–our femaleness and our feminine genius.

We do belong on this planet.  We do count just as much as males do.  We contribute in this world and in the end with our feminine genius and subtley we bring a gentler side and dignity to a world which can seem harsh.

Women have the right everywhere to a decent education and the right to raise their families in peace.  The right to be.  The right to discern our vocations in life as well.

We owe it to ourselves and our families to be counted in this often undignified world we live in.

This isnt all one-sided—men also deserve their God given rights as well.  If I might be bold as a Christian and for non Christians we have a right to this dignity in our souls.  Each one of us has the free right to achieve in this world with whatever talents we are endowed with.  To contribute to our society as best we can with whatever resources are allowed.

Our Lord gave us this dignity when He died on the cross for us.   Its a battle and we can achieve our goals.   Perhaps someday we will have a better world to live in for us and our unborn generations to come.

Today is my day off.  I just get on the web and surf and I search out information.  Today I found Father Gabriel Amorth.  He is Chief Exorcist of Rome.  Do I believe in demons and have I seen one?  First answer to the question is yes I believe that evil exists and that God created these beings.  Second I have not seen one but it doesn’t mean I can’t believe they are real.  If Jesus Christ said so and I believe in my whole heart He is real that is good enough for me. 

When I was a child and old enough to walk to church I would ask my friends to go.  I was always one of the first to ask them to go to church and to confession.  I never forgot the pull toward Jesus Christ even when I wandered from Him after 13 years of age.  Unfortunately I would put Him away and take Him out when it was convenient.  He has never considered me convenient it would become time to make sure this was never so.

I just plain drifted away for a while but I never forgot Him.   I was poorly Catechised like so many of my brothers and sisters of Christ.  It took me many years to learn about Him now that Im in my late 40’s. I have come back to Him and to hopefully serve Him well even as an imperfect human being.  My biggest fear is my failure but even then I know that He accepts me in this human frailty.  He forgives me when when I fall and he picks me back up.  I have far to go and a hope that I always walk with Him and next to Him.

You see it took a tragedy in my life to bring me back to God. In my selfishness I found His wisdom eventually and saw what He means to us.  He helped me see in my selfishness that we belong to Him no matter what.  In our deepest tragedy and even when we want to hate God we still belong to Him.  In my hatred because I thought He took my sister from this world in tragic death I finally saw what it truly means to be a Christian.  In this severity I found out that it truly is Him who has the last say in our lives.  I accept this.  I am glad He helped me see the error in my thinking and to know that His teaching is real.  To surrender our wills to His.

Well now I digress but it worth it.  I found some interesting topics like exorcism.  I stated in the beginning about Fr. Gabriel Amorth and his work against evil.  Well I’m with Father on this.  There is evil in the world and it surrounds us in life and we have to trust in Jesus Christ because as Peter the Fisherman said, “I believe Him because He said so”.  Brothers and sisters this last simple statement isnt much in the way of biblical teaching but its good enough for me.  Hell is real and I cant prove it but like I said I take Jesus Christ and His word for this one. 

This is His invitation through me to all of you out there who have fallen away from Christianity or who are non-Christians.   The invitation to pick up a good and simple authoritative work on the Life of Christ.  An invitation to at least find out who He was even if you don’t follow Him in your spiritual life or journey.  At chance to my brothers and sisters who have fallen away to come back and see Him again.  Give it go I did for a second time.  His word is Eternal and it has much to say to us.  Pick up a bible and check Him out with new eyes.

His word is Eternal and it has much to say to us.  Even if you have no belief or a belief the story is one of the greatest ever told.  Pick up a bible and check Him out with new eyes or old eyes.

Pray for me as I will pray for all of you.

Come seek out who Jesus Christ was and is.  Its an invitation and a pleasant journey to seek out and know Jesus christ for anyone from any walk of life.

Life is grand with God.

God Bless.

Living the Truth the Church Teaches

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true. —Soren Kierkegaard. "...truth is true even if nobody believes it, and falsehood is false even if everybody believes it. That is why truth does not yield to opinion, fashion, numbers, office, or sincerity--it is simply true and that is the end of it" - Os Guinness, Time for Truth, pg.39. “He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
