Post Catholic World


Watching the BBC news a few days ago and reading the papers this week has made it very clear that we are now living in a post Christian World. In Italy we have the President accused of pre-Christian Roman style sex orgies. Even if he is not as guilty as the media would have us believe, still no one thinks that he was just trying to convert these poor women! The idea that laws do not rest on the Moral Rock that is Catholic teaching is the problem. They say he had sex with an 'under-age prostitute', but a government that says if a women is 'X' age you can pay her to commit fornication with you, has no moral foundation for it's laws and may well change the age limit for prostitution up or down tomorrow!

We then had the video of the adulterous couple being stoned to death by the Taliban in Afghanistan. Jesus dealt with this;

And the scribes and the Pharisees bring unto him a woman taken in adultery: and they set her in the midst, And said to him: Master, this woman was even now taken in adultery. Now Moses in the law commanded us to stone such a one. But what sayest thou?

And this they said tempting him, that they might accuse him. But Jesus bowing himself down, wrote with his finger on the ground. When therefore they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them: He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again stooping down, he wrote on the ground. But they hearing this, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest. And Jesus alone remained, and the woman standing in the midst. Then Jesus lifting up himself, said to her: Woman, where are they that accused thee? Hath no man condemned thee?

Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn thee. Go, and now sin no more.


We also had a judge in England tell a couple that the laws of this country are no longer based on Judeo-Christian principles and thus they would have to let homosexual couples stay in their Bed & Breakfast. Parliament in England says that it is okay to kill babies in the womb, up to and during birth for the disabled. Euthanasia by neglect was legalised on 5th April 2005.

It is almost amusing to look at the pre & post Christian World and see that they are much the same. But why say, 'Post Catholic World' in the title for this post and not just Post Christian? Because once you allow one error or sin you will be open to others, once Henry VIII split from God's Church the Devil knew that this Country was in his grip. Just look at England today and remember that but for that lustful King this could still be Merry Catholic England.

I wonder though Stuart, because France remained Catholic after the Reformation (despite the Prots there), yet succumbed to the French Revolution. I wonder if the degenerate Henry VIII had remained Catholic, whether someone like Cromwell may not have come along and started his own Protestant/Masonic Revolution... Is France any better than England today?

Here's a pound, let's go!
