You spooky friends of mine (CIA, FBI, DHS…) ought to check out the fellow who was seated next to me on my U.S. Air flight from Paris to Charlotte on 26 July, 2012. All seats were assigned except for mine, until the last second.
The last time I was not assigned a seat was back in 1984, on my way to war torn Managua from Miami, on route to the Bluefields Vicariate. It was an open seating, first-come first-served situation. Though I and a friend were one of the first in line, we weren’t allowed on the half-empty plane, given the excuse that the plane was already full! The next day, it looked like we were to be refused again, but then a gentleman arrived and we were given assigned seating, with that gentleman between us. It turns out that he was CIA agent who wanted to know what we were doing going to such a country just then. He was very courteous, figuring us out, and gave us some expensive liquor to give to the great Cardinal of Managua, which we did.
Now, on the flight from Paris the other day, a way overbooked flight with all assigned seating, I did not have an assigned seat, even though there were some 100 people behind me in line. My boarding gate was changed to the “Envoy” gate. Just as I was about to board the plane, the airport speaker system announced my name. With that, I was told to go to a certain counter of another gate on the far side of that part of the terminal. There I was provided with a special ticket, this time with assigned seating. Next to my seat was a gentelman who, instead of sitting with his wife, he said, up in the front of the plane, came to sit next to me in a just-happened-to-be-vacant seat of a terribly overbooked flight. His excuse was that his wife was sick. Maybe the fellow who was supposed to be next to me had to sit next to his sick wife! All just coincidence, surely…
Anyway, this fellow is the present chairman of a super-NGO affecting untold numbers of run of the mill NGOs and a multitude of directly vetted and chosen individuals of countries around the world, all of them hyper-influential people. His super-NGO makes it it’s business to very effectively steer perspectives of countries and regions of countries with large sums of money as bait, though making this appear to be a grassroots initiative. No debate. No room for inititive. All participants must be sycophants, of which there are many in this world, apparently. This fellow liked to talk, so he couldn’t but mention now and again the branches of the U.S. government which had a direct, dicisive interest in his activities. Of course, I also like to ask questions and make comments that are bound to get things out of people, but I digress. In effect, he was happy to be a government pawn, changing his decades old, prestigious super-NGO into a willing puppet of the Obama administration.
He reeked of a liberalism which gets nervous around principled people. The stakes were jacked up in the conversation (perhaps five hours total), every time he realized I was more studied up in whatever direction the conversation wandered, for instance, into liberation theology (my teacher having been Gustavo himself). Soon he let himself repeat all the lines of Obama and the HHS, for instance about Catholics illegally “forcing” others not to contracept because Catholics didn’t want to pay for abortifacients. He insisted that the common good of encouraging sex followed by abortion had to be protected by the government, even if that meant forcing Catholics to go against their consciences, having them pay for the misbehavior of others.
When I brought up the great film of this Summer called “Cristeros”, about the self-defence of the Catholics who were getting slaughtered in Mexico in their tens of thousands as their religious rights were being trampled, he came out with the line in the title of this post: “Catholics ought to immitate the submissive cooperation of the Jews in their final solution.” He said this with a tone of voice that indicated praise for the Jews who so nicely went along with their own executioners. Get it, my Jewish friends? If you don’t help us Catholics now, don’t think it will not happen to you as well, all over again. This has got to stop, and it’s got to stop now. He’s just as willing to kill Jews right now as he is willing to kill Catholics. Get it? What kind of influence is he spreading with your tax dollars?
Now, if I was at a real computer, I would check out this fellow who was sitting next to me on the plane. But I’m not. But some of you reading this post are. Help us Catholics. Help the Jews. It’ll give you work, but that’s good, no?
Update… Touched a button. Good.
Updated again (27 August 2012): You’ve surely heard the stupid saying that religion is responsible for all violence in the world. That’s usually said as a throwaway line by atheist knuckleheads who have an axe to grind against whatever member of the Church, somehow speaking to the violence that they would like to do as revenge against any real or perceived stupidity by that individual. Well, take an advance course in all this:
The other day I went into a business and was asked how I was doing, and how my trip overseas went. I said fine, except that I had the strangest conversation with a gentleman on the return flight. I told the story above. Both examples, mind you, as above, were about the Nazi government killing off all the Jews and about the Socialist government of Mexico slaughtering the Catholics in the earlier part of last century.
The response was to ask me whether I was a Catholic priest. I said yes, and that it is difficult, isn’t it, to know it someone wearing a Roman Collar is really just a Lutheran or Anglican “priest”. The response to my saying that I’m a Catholic priest was to say that religion is responsible for all the violence in the world. Get that? The hatred against Catholics and those of any religion has been jacked up recently. What’s going on?
Just to say, huge persecutions have been taking place in this most bloodiest, violent, hellish past century. And it’s still going on. It may be that America will be next. There are those who hate religion, who hate life. They should be voted out of office. But most importantly, there is prayer: Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. And… Our Father…
I think I might mention all this to the Jewish community in Brevard. They use Sacred Heart Catholic Church. I mean, how can we forget the horror, and who did it? Here’s the video I made, once again, of the names of the children being read out at the Yad vaShem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem:
