Sunday, September 17, 2006so much of it...
So it would seem the "unholy father" (a.k.a the pope) has gotten himself into some hot water with the moon-god people.
As I read through the various accounts of what took place, what I found terribly sad is that for a rare moment, the pope had actually proclaimed something that was true. This is an excerpt of the pope's speech which started the Islamic firestorm:
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached".
That statement, dear readers is 100% true. Islam is an evil religion. It is inhuman in that it has a terribly poor esteem for human life (you don't buy this? just remember 9/11 and the abomination which took place in Beslan). Now before you all pass out from reading that I am in agreement with a papal speech, well consider this retraction of sorts from the unholy father, which just came out:
"As for the opinion of the Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus which he quoted during his Regensburg talk, the Holy Father did not mean, nor does he mean, to make that opinion his own in any way. He simply used it as a means to undertake - in an academic context, and as is evident from a complete and attentive reading of the text - certain reflections on the theme of the relationship between religion and violence in general, and to conclude with a clear and radical rejection of the religious motivation for violence, from whatever side it may come."
Interpretation: "He quoted it, but he didn't mean it."
And, in the same statement, issued by the Vatican after the pope's speech, we have this wicked nonsense:
"The position of the Pope concerning Islam is unequivocally that expressed by the conciliar document Nostra Aetate: “The Church regards with esteem also the Muslims. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself; merciful and all-powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth, Who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God. Though they do not acknowledge Jesus as God, they revere Him as a prophet. They also honor Mary, His virgin Mother; at times they even call on her with devotion. In addition, they await the day of judgment when God will render their deserts to all those who have been raised up from the dead. Finally, they value the moral life and worship God especially through prayer, almsgiving and fasting."
Interpretation: "Following Christianity or Islam... it really doesn't matter in the end... we are one big happy religious family."
The wicked nonsense.
Another school shooting, another "goth". I have been told by the MSM, that there is ZERO association between the "goth" culture and violence in youth. Even Michael Moore, in his trite and shallow documentary "Bowling For Columbine", made sure to point out that there was no reason (no reason at all) to believe that just because the young men who carried out the shooting in Columbine wore trench coats, loved Marilyn Manson and everything about the "goth" culture, there was any connection between the two facts.
Warped goth culture, shock-rock/heavy metal music, violent movies and video games... nothing to do with school shootings and other forms of youth violence. That's the line anyway. Yet, when we look at the young man who carried out the shootings at Dawson College in Montreal, what do we read:
"Postings on a goth website by Kimveer Gill, the trenchcoat-wearing gunman behind the fatal shootings at Montreal's Dawson College, paint a suicidal portrait of the 25-year-old."
"In a blog on VampireFreaks.com, an online hub of goth culture, journal entries made in Gill's name speak about the hatred he feels toward society and his obsession for guns."
"He says "heavy metal rulz," and lists Natural Born Killers as his favourite movie."
"Gill describes life "as a video game, you've got to die sometime.'' He says he is a fan of the controversial and violent video game series "Postal," in which the targets are everyday human beings completing everyday errands."
"But to be more specific," he continues, he hates jocks, preps, country music, Hip Hop, "bible-thumping know-it-alls," God and "all those who oppose my rule." (CTV.ca News)
If you ever take the time to look up the profile of the Columbine killers, you will find the exact same kind of people. But hey! no reason to think there is any relation... naw... don't get paranoid now! (yes... I'm rolling my eyes right now)
I would like to think that this shooting could serve as some sort of wake-up call. That contrary to Columbine, the people of Montreal could truly realize that our godless youth are is serious trouble because THEY ARE GODLESS. But then I read this statement in the very same article I took the above quotes from:
"Jethro Berelson, who owns VampireFreaks.com, said Gill's shooting rampage should not lead the public to condemn goth culture." (CTV.ca News)
And I just KNOW, my dumb-dumb countrymen will buy this nonsense. Why? Because:
"And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." (John 3:19)
