The Homosexualist Attack on Civilization

"The process of death-wishing, in the guise of liberalism, has been eroding the civilization of the west for a century and more, and now would seem to be about to reach its apogee. The Liberal mind, effective everywhere, whether in power or in opposition, has provided the perfect instrument. Systematically, stage by stage, dismantling our Western way of life, depreciating and depreciating all its values so that the whole social structure is now tumbling down, dethroning its God, undermining all its certainties. And all this, wonderfully enough, in the name of health, wealth and happiness of all mankind. Previous civilizations have been overthrown from without by the incursion of barbarian hordes; ours has dreamed up its own dissolution in the minds of its own intellectual elite. Not Bolshevism, which Stalin liquidated along with the old Bolsheviks; not Nazism, which perished with Hitler in his Berlin bunker; not Fascism, which was left hanging upside down from a lamp-post along with Mussolini and his mistress - none of these, history will record, was responsible for bringing down the darkness on our civilization, but Liberalism. A solvent rather than a precipitate, a sedative rather than a stimulant, a slough rather than a precipice; blurring the edges of truth, the definition of virtue, the shape of beauty; a cracked bell, a mist, a death wish..."

Rome Quotes

“The only really effective apologia for Christianity comes down to two arguments, namely, the saints the Church has produced and the art which has grown in her womb."

Scary Thought

Chrysler of Pius XII and John XXIII

In 1966 sadly a lot of Vatican cars were sold to make room for a more modern fleet.  Ugh, it was the sixties.

Some years ago I heard that Pope Pius XII's and John XXIII's 1954 Imperial Chrysler is kept here on the edge of Bologna:

I hope to visit soon and post a decent image.  The car was bought 30 years ago by a wealthy auto collector by the name of Mario Righini and today is kept in his private collection in Bologna.

Interesting info on the car made by Ghia of Turin:

I am also in search of John XXIII's 1960 Mercedes if anyone has any leads.

This auto I wish the Vatican had kept and still used:

The Lunacy of the Homosexualist Attack on the Family and Civilization

If you raise any opposition you will loose your job.  Without question.  

Which begs the question: who are the real bullies?

A world without Christianity is a world gone mad.

This poster is troubling.  I believe, if memory serves, this is what one would call discrimination.

Public agencies have no business granting special consideration to anybody.  This is discrimination. 

There are countless subsets of the population that suffer from discrimination, including all of us in one form or another. 

One of the great tragedies of our day is that persons with a homosexual inclination are defining themselves by their sexuality and not by their humanity.
