The New Barbarism

"We sit by and watch the barbarian. We tolerate him in the long stretches of peace, we are not afraid. We are tickled by his irreverence; his comic inversion of our old certitudes and our fixed creed refreshes us; we laugh. But as we laugh we are watched by large and awful faces from beyond, and on these faces there are no smiles." Hilaire Belloc

We have observed from the arrogance of tolerance pretending that the quiet voice would make it all go away, and we were foolish. Now our voice must be loud, are actions decisive, and our fortitude unrelenting.

This is not the end, this is just the emboldenment of the perverse toward the destruction of the Church, but it will fail as all tyranny against God's people has in the past. The days ahead will be dark and long, but as a good man has always taught me, "the Church is plan A and there is no plan B". We stay to the plan.

We know the end to the beginning, so we are resolved that in life or death, the loss of property and prestige, we are in the right.
