Pockets of Nazism and Struggles with Islamism

Evil is making a progress in the United States. Murder of those who cannot speak for themselves, what is being termed euthanasia by those who condone such murder, is spreading and is becoming more and more socially and legally acceptable. The latest case, which is gaining a higher and higher profile as the days drag on, is the case of Emmie Rose(1). She, a very prematurely born baby, is being starved to death, by the hospital and medical practitioners who are supposed to be trying to help her.


Radicals in the Muslim world are furious over comments made by Pope Benedict the XIV(2). In a lecture on "Faith and Reason" at the University of Regensburg in Germany, Benedict XVI cited one of the last emperors of Byzantium, Manuel II Paleologus. Stressing the 14th-century emperor's "startling brusqueness," the pope quoted him as saying: "Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."(3)

In a rush to prove that the Pope is crazy, angry Muslims began burning down Christian churches, calling for the Pope to be executed(4), and in an event that may or may not be linked to anger at the Pope, a Nun, yes, an unarmed woman whose mission was to provide nursing care and education(5), was murdered (martyred) in Somalia(6). I am really glad the Muslim world cleared all that up, and showed the world that the 14th century emperor was way off base.
