PRAISE OF MADNESS. HEADS BEHEADED BY ISLAMISTS IN EUROPE? DO NOT FEAR: "ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE AND LOVE"

.

No thinking and rational mind can argue that all Muslims are potential terrorists, such a statement would be truly aberrant. However, we must ask ourselves: because, right from Islam, violent extremist streams have been generated, which do not constitute minority phenomena or groups of so-called mavericks? Those of the Islamist terrorists are numerous and organized associations that benefit from enormous economic resources, not a few of which come under the table from rich Arab oil countries. The same countries that at every terrorist attack offer condolences to the West for the dead killed by the hands of those Islamist terrorists that they themselves have financed.

The first week of November the book by Father Ariel S. Levi di Gualdo who analyzes the roots of violence contained in Islam

The work of Erasmus of Rotterdam it is not what those who do not know it believe and who use its title to effect. Dedicated to his friend Thomas Moore, today venerated by the Holy Martyr Church, In praise of madness is a work based on the principles of scholasticism and classical metaphysics which through the use of satire speaks of the divine origin of madness. In periods of irreversible forfeiture, irony combined with the wisdom of faith of the fools of God, it is the most effective reactive tool to pave the way to salvation.

.

In France, the 16 October, an Islamist beheads a teacher, then posting on social media the image of the victim's head [See. La Repubblica, WHO]. Today, 29 October, another Islamist breaks into the Nice Cathedral, kills three people and beheads a woman with a knife [cf.. Avvenire.it, WHO].

.

A book of mine will be out in a few days entitled Aspirin moderate Islam, reflecting on which I wonder: with the times that run today and the worst ones that will come tomorrow, I can take risks, after explaining that Mohammed is a false prophet from which an Islam comes to life that to define in reassuring tones "religion of peace and love" sounds like an insult to human intelligence, to history and to the many victims who have fallen under its fatal blows over the centuries?

.

The risks I cannot foresee, but the reactions of oneiric do-gooders who dialogue at all costs and whatever costs, especially with all that is not Christian and Catholic and that caress the dangerous enemy that we have long dragged into the house, those yes, I can anticipate and predict them with ease. If as happened to the poor French professor, an eighteen year old would come and kill me and cut off my head, posting on social media the images of my beheaded body, it will happen that the loving and merciful Catholic teachers of dialogue at all costs and whatever it costs, they would hasten to ask Islam for forgiveness for the book I wrote. And if the members of the police forces of our country shot down my killer, as happened in Paris, for having brandished a weapon against them and not having stopped at the blocking order, after killing and beheading a person, would end up under investigation for murder, because this is how the magistrates of the Democratic Magistracy in Italy would arrange, reassuring banner that conceals today's post-communist and post-1968 Left, the newspapers of which they would explain that "it is only a legal act due", to investigate the police who fired. Meantime, idle daddy children from social centers would spark controversy, giving rise to hate campaigns towards the "fascist police", guilty of violating the rule of law, which for them is equivalent to the right to the protection of crime and criminals.

.

This is actually what happens in a European society conditioned by poisons filosofismi by Jean Jacques Rousseau, now rendered unable to say "poor murdered victim", but "poor killer", no longer "poor robbed", but "poor thief", no more "poor aborted child", but "poor woman who had an abortion"…

.

… before proceeding further it is worth clarifying who Jean Jacques Rousseau is, born in Geneva in 1712 and died in Ermenonville in 1778. Above all, what damage your thinking has done to European society. Incorrectly counted among the philosophers, Jean Jacques Rousseau to the test of the facts is a sociologist who is not free from points of surrealism and illogicality. In the post-Enlightenment period, his theories influenced politics and modern legal systems through the so-called "good savage" theory, according to which man is considered fundamentally good, if he then becomes a violent or a criminal, the causes are not to be sought in him, but in the society that led astray him and which is the real culprit for his violence and crimes. Needless to say, what these assimilated theories applied to politics and jurisprudence have produced in Western societies.

.

After the attack on the Bataclan nightclub in Paris consumed on 13 November 2015 by a team of Islamists who killed 113 people, the next day an open letter to the terrorists written by Chaimaa Fatihi was released in the press. An authentic monument to the emotionality and manipulation of reality, thanks to a dreamy adolescent spirit which reached its peak through the announcement of the wonderful link between Islam and peace; a magnificent bond that many insist on denying and recognizing. The letter soon became a workhorse in the Left press Radical chic and some Catholic press even more to the left of the Left Radical chic.

.

“Damn terrorists, sono Chaimaa Fatihi, I have 22 year old, I am Italian Muslim and European. I am writing to you so that you may understand that you will never have us, that you will not make Islam what it is not, you will not make Europe a place of massacres and your project of terror will not be effective. I am writing to you as a Muslim to tell you that my faith is Islam, a religion that preaches peace, which teaches fundamental values ​​and principles, like kindness, the education, freedom and justice. You are what Islam has opposed for centuries, you are enemies, you are the ones who shed the blood of innocents, of young people, Senior citizens, men and women, children and babies. I'm not afraid of your Kalashnikovs, of your knives and weapons, because as a Muslim I disown you, I fight you with the word, with information, with the voice of those who live their faith every day, giving an example of his teachings ".

.

In the book by Chaimaa Fatihi published a little less than a year later by the Rizzoli Publisher in 2016, this biography is reported: «She was born in 1993 in Morocco, where he lived until the age of six. She has since moved to Italy. After attending primary and secondary schools in the province of Mantua, in Castiglione delle Stiviere, now studies law. With this book he won in 2016 the 18th Casato Prime Donne di Montalcino Award, awarded to women who symbolize female courage and talent ".

.

There are many examples to give, about the catto-sinister Radical chic who have changed this letter to Santa Claus in a kind of Fourth Gospel. I choose one of the many signed by Daniela Rocchetti, delegate for the Christian life of the ACLI (Catholic Association of Italian Workers), far from knowing the texts of Islam, reports three striking phrases that have been reported to her by some Muslim scholars, clumsily extrapolated from the Koranic texts and presented as irrefutable proof that Islam repudiates violence [see, WHO]. This course of action is intellectually dishonest, but not moved by bad faith, but from gross ignorance and superficiality, typical assumptions of those who do not even understand the extreme complexity of the topics they presume to be able to deal with.

.

First of all let's clarify: for the Islamic faith the Koran is not a collection of metaphors to be interpreted, it is the word of Allah. Mohammed is none other than the faithful editor of a sacred book that must be applied to the letter, not interpreted. The Koran is a complex and very confusing text, inside, everything is affirmed, then its exact opposite. If in one sura non-violent behavior is invited, in another hundred it is detailed how violence is to be exercised on the infidels in a holy way. And if we read carefully certain invitations to non-violence, we will discover that in them the children of Islam are exhorted not to exercise violence against the other children of Islam, as his brothers. However, infidels are not brothers, The detailed explanations on how to deal with this prove it, assaulted and subdued by all coercive means available. The Quran even teaches how infidels are to be deceived: first by gaining their trust, and then, once they have relaxed and become friends, attacked and submitted. A real exaltation of the "holy" betrayal. So not only that, the "sacred text" of Islam legitimizes violence, but it explains in the smallest details how and with what severity it should be exercised. Obviously, these much more numerous texts, are not subject to exegesis by Prof.. Adnane Mokrani, Tunisian Muslim theologian who only members of the modern East India Company what was in the past the Society of Jesus founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola -, they could invite to the chair at the Pontifical Gregorian University, to show how open we are and how communicative we are. Especially when we are no longer Catholics, at least in those parts, where Jesuitism has supplanted Catholicism.

.

These texts of the Koran called a "religion of peace" in the tender letter to Santa Claus, but we know them. They are to be exact 123 those who explain how to fight and kill infidels for the cause of Allah. I will take only some excerpts below, those dedicated to the infidels, that is, all those who do not submit to Islam and whom the Koran invites to "arrest them, besiege them and prepare ambushes everywhere " (Sura 9:95). Muslims must also “surround them and put them to death wherever you find them, kill them wherever you find them, seek the enemies of Islam relentlessly " (Sura 4:90). To follow with a peremptory order: "Fight them until Islam reigns supreme" (Sura 2:193). Means are also indicated, as it were, effective: "Cut off their hands and the tips of their fingers" (Sura 8:12). And for those who have any doubts it is promptly clarified: "Muslims must make war on the infidels who live around them" (Sura 9:123). But if the whole was not yet clear, in this case it should be borne in mind that Muslims must be "brutal with infidels" (Sura 48:29). Again as further proof that Islam is a religion of peace, suffice it to add that a Muslim "must rejoice in the good things he has earned by fighting" (Sura 8:69). Numerous other exhortations to peace follow, more or less of this kind: anyone who fights against Allah or renounces Islam to embrace another religion, that he is "put to death or crucified or hands and feet amputated on opposite sides" (Sura 5:34). And yet: «Assassinate idolaters wherever you find them, take them prisoner and besiege them and wait for them in every ambush " (Sura 9:5). Who wonders why the Islamists slaughter and behead the so-called infidels, however, without finding an answer to this question, could draw illumination from this exhortation: “I will instill terror in the hearts of non-believers, hit on their neck and cut off the tips of all their fingers " (Sura 8:12). To further confirm that Islam is a religion of peace, it is enough to add: «When you meet the infidels, kill them with great bloodshed and tighten the prisoners' chains ". (Sura 47:4). To conclude with a touch of poetic mysticism that never hurts: "Know that Heaven lies under the shadow of swords" (Sahlih al-Bukhari Vol 4 p55).

.

I hope I have clarified why I feel genuine Erasmian tenderness for this young woman made the object of the worst exploitation of a certain blind ideology, to which the doors of the great publishing industry were instantly opened, rather than intelligent and realistic books, decided to sell morphine to relieve pain from a tumor with widespread metastases, reassuring at the same time that, the death, does not exist.

.

No thinking and rational mind can argue that all Muslims are potential terrorists, such a statement would be truly aberrant. However, we must ask ourselves: because, right from Islam, violent extremist streams have been generated, which do not constitute minority phenomena or groups of so-called mavericks? Those of the Islamist terrorists are numerous and organized associations that benefit from enormous economic resources, not a few of which come under the table from rich Arab oil countries. The same countries that at every terrorist attack offer condolences to the West for the dead killed by the hands of those Islamist terrorists that they themselves have financed. And someone perhaps intends to take offense, when one dares to speak of that duplicity and hypocrisy that characterizes certain Arab cultures?

.

In the book that is about to be distributed I tried to explain with scientific rigor that defining Islam as a "religion of peace and love" is an insult to common sense and human intelligence, a real shop of hallucinogenic acids. Islam comes to life precisely from the violence and war with which it has imposed itself since the time that its founder Mohammed was always alive.

.

La tenera Chaimaa Fatihi is simply one of those figures that our problematic Jesuit theologian Karl Rahner would have counted among the army of those "anonymous Christians" who, without knowing it, are in fact Christians. Tender girl all peace and love who in concrete facts turns out to be a confused Muslim, unknowingly assimilated to the Christian roots of European culture. Enough to generate such confusion in her as to push her to attribute to Islam what are the founding characteristics of Christianity: a religion of peace and love.

.

Similar figures of surreal Muslims they are the nothing intended to reassure the Godless European secularists, that for the cross of Christ they have replaced the rainbows and the marches of Gay Pride, who punctually desecrate all the most precious symbols of Christianity on the streets of the capitals of Europe. And no longer knowing who they are and where they come from, here dense armies of Europeans without memory and roots finally draw illusory reassurance from the words of a confused young woman like the "anonymous Christian" Chaimaa Fatihi, who does not know what Islam is, but which makes up for this lack of knowledge with a completely false emotional reassurance: "Islam is a religion of peace". A mantra that goes from bombing to bombing, from beheading to beheading we hear repeated in total disregard for history and logic, as if the refusal of reality could save us.

.

"We need to dialogue with moderate Islam", recites another mantra that has been around for thirty years now. But even the latter is an illogical assertion split from reality, because it is equivalent to saying: "You have to enter a brothel and try to talk to virgin prostitutes". E qSome believe it is really possible to find a virgin prostitute inside a brothel? A question which Europe sick with destructive hatred of its Christian roots should answer.

.

This letter in which Europe heard what it wanted to hear about the corpses of the dead killed by the Islamists at the Bataclan in Paris and all the others that followed, it is first and foremost a mess of illogical content, even before fake, destined to injure human intelligence. Contents denied by fifteen centuries of past and present history, it would be enough just to ask the girlish author: women and children locked up in Nigerian churches and burned alive, Christians persecuted and killed in Pakistan, Christian women raped and Christian men mutilated in Afghanistan, Christians who in almost all Arab countries and those governed by Islamic religious theocracies are deprived of civil rights and freedom of worship, they are perhaps the victims of a small Islamist minority culture, while the totality of Islam lives on the universal sign of peace and love? The sad reality is that these Christians, persecuted everywhere Muslims hold the power of government, they are victims of the violence inherent in that Islam that a Muslim assimilates to European culture, as well as "anonymous Christian", he painted us as a "religion of peace" on the corpses of the slain dead.

.

In the capital of Italy, (c)hand historically it is also the world capital of Christianity, the largest mosque in Europe was built. Paid by King Faisal, Sovereign of Saudi Arabia since 1964 to the 1975, built on a project by the famous architect Paolo Portoghesi and cost at the time - so they say - about 200 billions of old lire. The then reigning Pontiff Paul VI, Bishop of Rome, he raised no protest, nor any reservations, indeed he sent his best wishes to the Islamic Community present on the Italian territory.

.

In Arabia Saudita, where is the "holy city" of Mecca, there is not even a twenty square meter chapel. Preserving a Gospel or Christian religious symbols is considered by the Islamic criminal law of that, as of other countries, a serious crime punishable severely. The only two Catholic liturgies that take place in that area for Christmas and Easter are celebrated in the extra territorial spaces of the embassies of Italy and France. That said, perhaps more needs to be added?

.

La tenera Chaimaa Fatihi, whose book was crowned by the Casato Prime Donne di Montalcino Award, awarded to women, symbol of female courage and talent, in addition to the mantra that "his" dream Islam "is a religion of peace", he has nothing to say to us, about that? Because as far as I'm concerned, I will have a lot to say instead, strictly based on the world of reality, certainly not about the imaginative world of the surreal adolescent dreams of an "anonymous Christian" Muslim.

.

Per summarize the spirit and attitude of this tender surreal young woman dedicated to the sale of morphine, I would like to use a phrase extrapolated from the XXXIII Canto del Paradiso by Dante Alighieri: "The high imagination was missing here". Phrase that sounds in today's Italian: "The greatest imagination lacked the capacity". Vale a dire: we are just beyond the capabilities of human imagination itself.

.

In fact, the difference between Christianity and Islam is abysmal, though the morphine dealers don't intend to catch it: if in the name of Christianity someone gave birth to forms of violence, would betray the essence of his message and his actions would be denied and condemned by the contents of our Sacred Scriptures. If in the name of the false prophet Muhammad, groups that are anything but minority, instead they give rise to forms of dangerous violence, in doing so they fulfill what is contained and enclosed in the Koran, who commands to attack, to subdue and subdue the infidels, even indicating how to kill those who refuse to undergo forced conversion. Violent practice that has always been practiced by Islam "religion of peace", which in a very urban and liberal way leaves you two choices if necessary: either you get converted or I'll kill you.

.

La tenera Chaimaa Fatihi, which Quran he read? And if he read it, he thinks he has understood? Or more simply: he really thinks he can easily make fun of Christians, without taking into account that we, behind, we don't have a shrewd camel driver born in the Arabian peninsula who became a great prophet, but the Word of God made man? To this must then be added twenty centuries of history and culture, in addition to how we treasured, also preserved and developed the heritage of Jewish wisdom, Greek and Roman.

.

Santa Claus, alla tenera Chaimaa Fatihi, he has already brought another decapitated head as a gift, this time inside the sacred spaces of the Basilica of Notre Dame of Nice, on which he can return to reassure us that Islam "is a religion of peace", while for my part I wish good morphine to Europe affected by widespread metastases and relentless hatred and rejection of its Christian roots.

27 thoughts on "In praise of madness. Heads beheaded by Islamists in Europe? Don't be afraid: "Islam is a religion of peace and love"

  1. It would be abhorrent to claim that all Muslims are active terrorists, but that they are potentially such is not at all impossible. And then slowly with the term terrorism. If Macron's tale were true and everyone lined up, that secular freedom was attacked, how is it that all the victims are practicing Christians ? The three dead from Nice certainly weren't even readers of the secular banner Charlie Hebdo, instead they were inside a cathedral church.

    1. Good evening
      I can't help but think of Oriana Fallaci (modern Cassandra) who denounced the non-existence of a “Islam moderato ” and fought to the last in defense of our Christian roots against the “barbarity” of Islamic culture.
      Can you tell me a nation where Islam predominates where the Christians who live there have the same rights as the rest of the population?

  2. God is always the same, call it Allah or Holy Trinity. Therefore Muslims also believe in a God who wants Love and Peace. Not me but a lot of theologians affirm this.

    1. You are free to deny the evidence of the facts, however, there is a freedom that he cannot claim: comment on an article without having read it.
      Your Welcome, make a list of "fine theologians", because a famous theologian of the twentieth century, certainly Benedict XVI, in its keynote to Regensburg, about Islam, said quite another, also with reference to the element of violence.
      Or as that wise man of Totò would say … 'But do me the favor!»

      1. Here is the list (if they didn't say so, they agreed with that statement):
        Jacques Dupuis
        Tissa balasuriya
        Enzo Bianchi
        Michael Fitzgerald
        Rosino Gibellini
        Peter-Hans Kolvenbach
        Franz King (he was Archbishop, but it will be fine anyway…)
        Henri le saux
        Vito Mancuso
        Gerald O’Collins
        Raimon Panikkar
        Paul Tillich
        Faustino Teixeira
        Josè Maria Vigil
        Paulo Suess
        I have certainly forgotten a few other names…

        1. You range between the comic and the ridiculous, without realizing that they are one and the other together.
          But what did he send us: the litanies of the heretics?
          She knows, for case, deeds and misdeeds of most of the people you mentioned?
          You know that Jacques Dupuis was sentenced in 2000 by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, that Enzo Bianchi's thought is so heterodox that it cannot even be accused of heresy but of atheism, as our late confrere and theologian Antonio Livi did with theological precision?
          You know that Vito Mancuso has denied some of the main founding dogmas of our faith to the point that, having involved Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini in a preface to one of his heretical books, the Jesuit magazine La Civiltà Cattolica published an article in which it highlighted the dangerous heterodoxy of his thought? And note well: the new generation Jesuits who accuse someone of heterodoxy, it's stuff that really makes you think.
          Etc. … etc. …

          The authors you have cited are the exponents of the so-called most radical and most driven progressivism, several of which were cautioned, others condemned by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

          This is because, I say so, facts and deeds say so.

          1. I don't go into the merits: if the Church tells me that Allah is a bad God I believe the Church.
            But I say that Galileo Galilei was condemned and then… and that Yves Congar was first condemned and then became one of the main inspirers of the Second Vatican Council.
            And then the Declaration in which it is written “the diversity of religions is willed by God” Pope Francis did not sign it.

          2. The right sentence is “I did not sign it but Pope Francis”. Convicting then risks being out of fashion: Jesus is the Truth, because the Church must be afraid of the truth?

          3. @Giovanni Di Guglielmo
            Allah is simply the name of God in Arabic;
            the problem is therefore not what the Church says about God, but what the Koran writes about Jesus:
            – “Those who say are certainly disbelievers: "Allah is the Messiah son of Mary" " (5, 17.72)
            – “And when Allah will say: «Or Jesus son of Mary, maybe you told people: ” Take me and my mother as two gods other than Allah?” », will answer: Glory to You! How could I say what I have no right to? If I had said that, You certainly would know, because You know what is in me and I do not know what is in You. " (5, 116)
            – “The Nazarenes say: "The Messiah is the son of Allah". This is what comes out of their mouths. They repeat the words of those who were already disbelievers before them. Li annienti Allah. How misled they are!”; “It is not fitting for Allah to have a child. Glory to Him!” (9,35).

        2. I Understand!
          Basically like me, preaching in a church in Naples, I cited the historical leader of the Camorra Raffaele Cutolo in support of my outlandish theories.

          1. … or as if I, in “hot zone” of Campania where I am, on All Saints' Day I brought the little angels of the Nigerian mafia as an inspirational model.
            A hug dear Don Ciro
            don Ettore

          2. If he “Don” it refers to a priestly ordination then you chew very little on theology. And it ignores that there is a theological research, since it equates theologians, often people consecrated to God, to Camorra delinquents.

        3. I certainly know Vito Mancuso …never been a theologian …certainly heretic …and in strong Masonic smell….
          But she has read her books ?

          1. … and you know that he was ordained a priest, just 23 year old, by Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, than to order it at that age, he asked for a dispensation from the Holy See?
            Indeed, to receive sacred ordination, are required 25 years old, the bishop has the faculty to dispense one year but below 24 years the dispensation of the Holy See is needed.
            And he knows that shortly after a year, he asked for dispensation from celibacy and dismissal from the clerical state?
            A quel point, Cardinal Martini, he sent him to deepen the theological sciences with Bruno Forte.

            Certain, that I have read his books, I'm not Cardinal Martini, that after the good results of this child prodigy, he pretended to believe that he did not know him.
            I know both the killers and the principals of the killers who then claim to say: “my hands are clean”.

    2. I Got 54 year old, I was born in Egypt from a Muslim family that is not fundamentalist but of “moderate Islamic observance”.
      I went to international school in Cairo (high school) then I arrived in Italy a 19 years for medical studies.
      I am a specialist doctor and executive (deputy primary to be understood).
      In 21 year old, fascinated by Christianity, I began my journey of conversion and a 24 year old, Easter night, I was baptized by the bishop in the cathedral.
      They've been married 27 years with my wife, we had four children, all practicing Catholics.
      Two years ago I had the great pleasure that the highly esteemed Father Ariel (that I know from 10 year old) celebrated the Holy Mass during which we renewed our marriage vows. For the occasion, my wife and my children went to Rome on purpose and after the Mass celebrated by Father Ariel we visited the tomb of St. Peter.
      After my conversion and baptism my parents didn't want to see me again, the last interview I had with my mother dates back to when I had 25 year old, I wanted to take my then girlfriend to Egypt, who would soon become my wife. My mother said … “don't you dare take a Christian bitch home”.
      Even when my parents died I couldn't go to their funeral, because my brothers and sisters sent me to say that they did not want to see me. I have never met my grandchildren and the wives and husbands of my brothers and sisters.
      I have been told by mutual friends that some of my grandchildren do, even if born in a family of “moderate practitioners”, today they are part of fundamentalist groups.
      Simply, Dear Lord, I wanted to tell you that if today heads have been cut off in Europe too, the fault lies with people who, like her, talk about what they don't know.
      In conclusion, she is an ignorant, as Father Ariel would say … “in the etymological sense of the term”.
      Therefore, have the intelligence not to reply by explaining to me what the Islamic world is.

      Letter Signed

      1. Thank you very much for what you wrote. His testimony is precious. If only our politicians and our ecclesial hierarchy stunned by morphine could read and meditate “inclusivist”.
        I will not fail to buy Father Ariel's book. I would like to add that there is a site to consult that is really well done, who expertly exposes the falsehoods of Islam: http://www.islamicamentando.org

  3. Padre Ariel, does not believe that if certain attitudes of tolerance are widespread in the thinking of many clerics and not only this is also due to the new line indicated by CV II?
    “Are, over the centuries, not a few quarrels and hostilities have arisen between Christians and Muslims, this sacred synod urges all to forget the past and to work sincerely for mutual understanding, as well as in preserving and promoting together for all mankind social justice, the moral values, peace and freedom.” (Our life?)

    1. Dear Louis,

      I hope he will read my book in the next few days, because, among other things, you will find inside all my reservations about the Nostra Aetate document, expressed from a strictly theological point of view.

    2. It saddens me a lot to read about how CVII documents are being misrepresented: “1. In our time in which the human race is unified more closely every day and interdependence between the various peoples is growing, the Church examines more carefully the nature of its relations with non-Christian religions. In his duty to promote unity and charity among men, and indeed between peoples, in the first place it examines here everything that men have in common and which impels them to live together their common destiny.” /:/ The Council Fathers, in those early years 60, they saw the world launched into unity and, in the light of charity, they want to give their input invite “to forget the past” and to give priority to what we have in common: some have unfortunately read these words as a new ecclesiastical line, forgetting, however, that we are sent “like sheep among wolves” and invited to be “prudent like snakes and simple like doves”.

      1. Lorenzo, perché non si tratterebbe di una nuova linea ecclesiastica? Il CV II stesso è stato pensato per dare alla Chiesa una nuova strategia d’azione secondo cui, attraverso un’apertura alle istanze e alle novità del mondo moderno, si sarebbe potuto raggiungere più facilmente il cuore e la mente dell’uomo di oggi e in questo modo riavvicinarlo al messaggio evangelico.

        Al di là dei discutibili presupposti teologici e filosofici di molte delle idee che hanno sostenuto questa nuova strategia (di cui però non posso parlare in dettaglio in quanto non è il mio campo), gli stessi numeri dimostrano che i risultati ottenuti non sono proprio brillanti, on the contrary, soprattutto in Europa.

  4. Kind Egyptian doctor, I have read many stories like yours, of course NOT in the main stream press including that now as many former Catholics say. Whoever converts is disowned by the family, from neighbors, by friends and often threatened with death, sometimes physically killed and the worst thing is that this now happens in Europe too. I don't know if there are moderate Muslims, much more likely I believe from what she says too, are “bad “secularized Muslims who listen to the voice of conscience. Certainly for at least 40 years the Islamic community is increasingly fundamentalist and violent, as confirmed by the chronicles not only of terrorist attacks, but of rape and anti-Semitism in countries like France, Scandinavia, Belgium etc. towards Christians, Jews, towards Western women and even children or as happened in Lyon towards the Armenians. No wonder your grandchildren are staunch fundamentalists,l’ illusion of ‘ Secular Islam was just an illusion in which, unfortunately, too many in Italy in the first place still want to believe.

  5. Ma questa simpatica e tenerissima Chaimaa Fatihi, come fa a confondere l’Islam con il Cristianesimo? Of, già oggi anche ai vertici del Clero confondono il Gesuismo con il CristianesimoMa poi com’è possibile essere tanto ciechi da non vedere l’orrore? Dobbiamo allora pensare che costoro che confondono, in realtà invece sanno ma tacciono! E allora io vorrei consigliare a questi presunti non vedenti, di farsi bene i conti perché prima o poi ci sarà appunto un conto da pagare, un conto che sarà caro e amaro! E per chi non crede nella vita dopo la morte ma è comunque un simpatizzante dell’Islam, a costoro dico: Warning !!! these here, questi dell’Islam, il conto, appena sgarrate, ve lo faranno pagare qui sulla terra, in questa realtà immanente. Bellissimo articolo Padre Ariel, a powder’ di ironia non guasta, ho appena acquistato su Amazon (sono un vecchio cliente) questo suo ultimo libro, sarà sicuramente bello come gli altri due che ho preso il mese scorso. Thanks. Let Jesus Christ of Hail.
