Far be it from me to talk about just war theory when I haven’t written a doctoral thesis on it. But I do know someone who has written such a thesis, which, in fact, has been tweaked by decades of military experience and reviewed by the Department of Defense and Congress and this and that successive POTUS and so on and so forth, as the need arises.
However, I don’t think the author will be saying anything about the present oppression of religious freedom in the United States. What he’s already said is still ringing in the ears of all the above, even though they are trying not to think about it at the present moment. It’s his take on just war that they take as official policy, but, unofficially, they are wondering what to do about it in these United States.
So, in this series on the great 2012 film For Greater Glory, about the fight for freedom to practice religion in Mexico in the 1920s, I’ll just have to do my best with the rather outrageous life experience I’ve had.
The freedom fighters were led, note well, by a Freemason, the greatest general in Mexico, pictured above, who converted to the faith as he fought, seeing the great martyrs give their lives for Christ and desiring that the Catholic Church have religious freedom. The oppression was coming from a socialist-Masonic government of Mexico, which did not permit believers to have a voice in the public square nor any freedom to worship. The government armies slaughtered Catholics like the Aztecs offered human sacrifice just some centuries previously.
Human sacrifice stopped dead, so to speak, when our Lady of Guadalupe appeared. But the Mexicans began to lose sight of her Son Jesus, with some opting for Marxist “revolution.” The martyrs, the Cristeros, brought back the faith to Mexico, until recently, when many have begun to ignore Christ the King and the Virgin of Guadalupe. I think I mentioned before that there are Mexican youngsters who feel that they are grown up because they are leaving the faith for the human sacrifice of the Obama culture. Yet, I’m told by older Mexicans that, instead, the faith is very strong in Mexico, and among the Mexicans here in the U.S.A.
In this series, I would like to draw an analogy of the oppression of the Obama administration, the Obama Laws as compared to the laws of the president of Mexico at the time. Don’t be fooled. Obama’s attack on religious freedom is, he says, “only” aimed at conscience in the public square, but letting you worship in a church, but trying to force you into, for instance, formal cooperation with abortion, having you pay for that through “health” insurance. He doesn’t realize that the Body of Christ which is offered in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offended by the abortion of the members of the Body of Christ because of his death mongering. The reality is that when once conscience is outlawed and this is reconfirmed a reelection of Obama, and when once there is civil disobedience by Catholics, led by the bishops, then don’t think that there won’t also be a ban on worship. Churches closing, etc. Just like in Mexico.
But Father! But Father! It couldn’t happen here! We’re NICE!
No, we’re not nice. Even Catholics sacrifice their children in abortion and with abortifacient pills and injections and implants, just as much as non-Catholics. Some repent. And that is super wonderful. But, just to say, kids are being sacrificed by the tens of millions. This cannot go on. A persecution wrought by those who have such blood on their hands is already in the works, if you haven’t noticed already with the HHS mandate. Having such blood on their hands makes it really, really easy to take the next step against those who would proclaim the right to life, the preciousness of life, the beauty of life.
When people are being murdered in their churches and in their homes in their tens and tens and tens of thousands, do they have a right to self-defense?
