Je Suis Charles Martel

The slogan Je Suis Charles Martel is beginning to make its way around Saint Blogs.  Here is some information on the grandfather of Charlemagne who stopped the advance of Islam into what became France in 732 at the battle of Tours.

Read the rest over at American Catholic.

The difference between Charles Martel and us, however, is that our victory will not mainly come through weapons, even though it appears justified to use force to stop the slaughter of Christians in Iraq and Syria. Instead, we mainly need to convert our culture so that it becomes grounded in truth and empowered to address the many challenges we face. Most notably, someone who’s grounded in the Lord will not radicalize and start blowing stuff up. Nor would such a person engage in gratuitous insulting of objects or persons considered sacred by other religions. That doesnt mean they’ll never get offended, because sincere dialogue in the search of truth will sometimes hurt, but it’s done gently and with the purpose of bringing others to see the light, not just for kicks.

We can’t effectively convert the culture if we aren’t converted ourselves. That’s why everyone reading this needs to make an honest introspective assessment of themselves to determine just how hard they’re working towards becoming a better person who’s closer to the Lord. When is the last time you read a robust spiritual book? I’m not talking about a blog post or a magazine article. I’m talking about something meaty, like St. Francis De Sales’ Introduction to the Devout Life, or Dom Lorenzo Scupoli’s The Spiritual Combat, or Fr. Faber’s Growth in Holiness, or Fr. Walter Ciszek’s He Leadeth Me.

Reading one of these books with a view to applying it’s contents will transform your life. You will never be the same. And that’s a good thing. We could all use an upgrade in our souls.

You can’t give what you don’t have. If you aren’t in a close relationship with God, you’ll have trouble transforming the world around you.

If you don’t have it, what are you waiting for? Let’s get to work!

  1. After leaving the highly offensive photo titled “Piss Christ” posted for 26 years of State Sanctioned “neutral” Secular Paganism; despite decades of public Christian outcry over the image panned as art; “The Associated So-called neutral Secular Press” finally removed the controversial, and denigrating image of Christ, but only after a journalist called out its “double standard” brought to light when it touted its policy of not publishing potentially offensive Charlie Hebdo satirical cartoons of Muhammad, such as the ones that incited the deadly Paris attack.

    We live in former Christian Democracies, where schoolchildren started every school morning with the Lord’s Prayer led by their school teachers!

    These Democracies changed their State Sanctioned Worldview-Religion starting in 1962, when United States,Canada,South America and Europe declared Christianity unconstitutional in Government,Law ,Education and Secular Paganism politically and legally correct.The so-called majority of Christian scholars and High Priesthood etc.,were mute on the subject,and their followers bought the neutrality lie of Secular Paganism hook line sinker,and they still do.Saint Paul commended the Christians who searched the Scriptures to make sure what he was saying is true,because there are too many who say they are Christ’s Priests, but twist the scriptures to change their meaning.Today many of our Seminary students don’t know that The Prophet Hosea’s wife chose to became a Pagan Temple prostitute,but he waited for her until the Pagan Priests and their followers used her up,and Hosea’s love finally saved her and their children.Imagine the trauma the husband and children went through?Today schoolteachers and homosexual activists traumatize children by normalizing morbid perversion as, so-called “neutral” Secular Pagan human rights.What kind of Democratic Civilization allows this?No wonder mental illness is common today,and Canadian and Western youth are so easily converted to Islam.Even if one makes wrong choices they can change, and be saved by a righteous father like Hosea.Our Triune God with His attributes gave us volition-free will,to use responsibly in our democracies.Why don’t Catholic high priests and Protestant Cults use it to change rotten laws politically,instead of arguing about the attributes of Mother Mary etc., as schoolchildren are perverted by adult schoolteachers and homosexual activists in Government and Private schools by decree,as so-called human rights?

    In Democracies when righteous citizens are shown how to change rotten 2005 Parliamentary, and Supreme Court of Canada Law that made Canada a legal destination for Sex Trafficking Predators and Pedophiles,as human rights,they did it.The age of sex consent was raised in Canada in 2008 when parents decided to take the advice of our Good Professors who showed them how to do it Politically.Educators like Tom and Molly Landers and friends used their own time and money to do this,while the majority of our Catholic Priesthood and Protestant Cults were too busy arguing about the attributes of Mother Mary.

  2. This was sent today by a close friend of Tom , Molly Landers and mine. Politically with the help of concerned parents we made Western Civilization a better place,for a moment.
    Our school teachers led us every school morning with The Lord’s Prayer,and The Ten Commandments were on Government House,Court House, School House Walls,and in the majorities hearts and minds.

    Subject: What is an infidel?
    This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader in prison ministry.

    The man who walks with The Tri-une God always gets to his destination.
    If you have a pulse you have a purpose.

    The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States.

    Last month I attended my annual training session that’s required for maintaining my state prison security clearance.
    During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic,Protestant and Muslim faiths,who each explained their beliefs.
    I was particularly interested in what the Islamic had to say.
    The Muslim Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video.

    After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.
    When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked:
    “Please, correct me if I’m wrong,but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad (Holy war) against the infidels of the world and, that by
    killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven,paradise.
    If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?”

    There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation,he replied, “Non-believers!”

    I responded, “So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?”

    The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.

    He sheepishly but honestly replied, “Yes.” I then stated, “Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine The Pope commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith, or Dr.Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!”

    The Muslim Iman was speechless!
    I continued, “I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question:Would you rather have your Allah,who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?”

    You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.

    Needless to say, the so-called “neutral” Secular organizers and promoters of the Politically Correct “Diversification” training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam,and exposing the truth about the Muslims’ Koranic beliefs.

    In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in The United States Of America to elect the President.

    I think everyone ,should be required to read this,but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!
    Please, for Christ’s sake, send it on! Blessings.
