Digging up Franco is a grave attack upon Christianity

The anti-Christian government in Spain is about to desecrate the grave of former Head of State General Francisco Franco and remove his remains to a private family plot. Franco’s resting place is situated behind the high altar of the Catholic Basilica of the Holy Cross of the Valley of the Fallen. On Thursday, 23rd October, the anti-Christian powers in Spain are due to desecrate the sacrosanct property of the Church and trample all over her rights, just as they did in the years leading up to the Spanish Civil War.

In the two years leading up to the Civil War that began in 1936 until its end in 1939, more than 20,000 Christian churches were destroyed. The diabolical anti-Christian hatred unleashed in Spain persecuted, tortured and murdered tens of thousands of Christians in a targeted attack upon Christianity  Nearly 7,000 clergy and religious were cruelly murdered. The martyred include 13 bishops, 4,172 diocesan priests and seminarians, 2,364 monks and friars, and 283 nuns. The military coup, that started the Spanish Civil War proper, was partly in response to these ferocious and murderous attacks upon the Church, her clergy and religious.

In the Valle de los Caidos, the Valley of the Fallen, the basilica, and its surrounding monument, capped by a 500 foot Christian Cross, can be seen from some twenty-miles away. It is carved out of a granite mountain and erected as a symbol of reconciliation and peace, containing as it does the remains of 40,000 people from both warring sides. All their names are recorded in the monument’s register. In a similarly symbolic gesture Franco, the reactionary right-wing pro-capitalist military General, was laid to rest in the basilica next to the popular martyred Spanish nationalist leader Jose Antonio Primo de Rivera who sought social justice for the landless and oppressed and the unity of Spain based upon the social doctrines of the Church.

Interestingly, perhaps a sign of providence at work, Franco went to his eternal judgement on 20th November, the same day, but 39 years later, that Jose Antonio was martyred by the anti-Christian regime just a few months before the beginning of Spain’s Civil War.

With the removal of Franco’s remains and the desecration of the basilica, Spanish Catholics are expecting an increased wave of attacks upon what is left of Christian civilisation in Spain.

A tale of anti-Catholic tyranny

Even the New York Post, the 4th largest-circulation newspaper in the U.S.A., found the “allegations were utterly implausible” enough to provide an opinion-piece with the straight-to-the-point headline “Catholic-haters have just convicted an innocent cardinal”.

 

 

That’ll learn ’em!

Against a worldwide background of genocidal-level attacks, widespread desecration of churches, and general hate directed against Catholics, it’s encouraging to see that public acts of hatred against Christianity are not being tolerated in Poland.

A criminal has been arrested for “carrying out profanation” of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa, after posters depicting a sacrilegious image of Our Lady and the Child Jesus appeared in the city of Płock. A raid upon the woman’s home uncovered a supply of the offending posters. If convicted a prison sentence of up to two years could await the offender.

More than a whiff of anti-Catholicism

“……. they made things up about them, and there was more than a whiff of anti-Catholicism in the hatred they heaped on these kids.”

An honest atheist, and (former?) Marxist writes:

“We now know that what was said about the boys wasn’t even true. A longer video has emerged showing what really happened at the Lincoln Memorial. It was the boys who were subjected to bigoted abuse, not Nathan Phillips. One of the Native American activists says to the boys: ‘White people, go back to Europe.’ They hurl the F-word at the boys. For more than an hour the boys, who were waiting for their school bus, were subjected to obscenities by a small group of Black Hebrew Israelites, a black nationalist religious outfit. The boys were called crackers, faggots, paedophiles, the products of incest. They are told, ‘Your president is a homosexual’. The boys do not shout any insults back. Nathan Phillips enters the picture after the boys had suffered an hour of racialised and homophobic abuse and he starts banging his drum in the boys’ faces. Here is the worst thing about the Twittermob’s globalised naming and shaming of these boys: they were humiliating the victims of the strange events at the Lincoln Memorial.”

Trying to ban Christmas again

The Holy Family Church in Mossend tell us on their Facebook page that “If you have listened to BBC Scotland’s Call Kay Show today you would have heard a number of alarming views proposing that Nativity plays are offensive and should have no place in modern Scotland!
We disagree! 
So Who loves Nativity plays?!”

Official figures show that the great majority of *hate crimes* recorded in Scotland are directed against Catholics. The institutionalised anti-Catholicism inherent in the British State and its discriminatory laws against Catholics encourage anti-Catholic attitudes.

The Gunpowder Plot: 17th-Century False Flag

The Gunpowder Plot: 17th-Century False Flag

The Anti-Catholic Story Tested Against the Evidence.

“The Gunpowder Plot” of 1605 – known at the time as the Gunpowder Treason Plot or the Jesuit Treason – was billed as a failed assassination plot against Protestant King James I of England by a group of English Catholics led by Robert Catesby.

The official story was that the “conspirators” were going to blow up the House of Lords during the opening of England’s Parliament on the 5th November by igniting a massive cache of gunpowder stored in the cellars under the Houses of Parliament. The alleged conspirators, we are told, hoped to inspire a widespread revolt in which a Catholic monarch could be placed on the throne.

Also allegedly involved in the plot were a number of other Catholics including Guido “Guy” Fawkes, a veteran of the military. Fawkes was supposedly given charge of the explosives. One version of the “official” story is that he was caught in the act, just as he was lighting the fuse attached to the pile of gunpowder.

At their trial on Jan. 27, 1606, eight of the survivors, including Fawkes, were convicted and sentenced to be hanged, drawn and quartered. Almost all of them had confessed after weeks of brutal torture.

The Protestant ruling elite subsequently used the Gunpowder Plot to continue cracking down on the practice of Catholicism in England and foment perpetual war with England’s neighbours. More Catholics – lay and clergy alike – were hunted down, tortured and either imprisoned or executed. Many Catholics went into hiding.

But was the Gunpowder Plot a “false flag,” an event in which one group frames another for a crime for some political end? And how does the evidence stand up to real scrutiny? Was the plot even possible? Was it more likely that members of a government faction had set up the plot themselves using infiltrators and double agents?

Propaganda about the event was, and still is, used to unify the people against Catholics, with state-sponsored holidays in which effigies of Guy Fawkes, in particular, were burned as the public lit bonfires and celebrated the foiling of the “dastardly” scheme. What’s the truth? Find out in a reprinted edition of an 1897 book by John Gerard, who bears the same name as one of the Catholic priests pursued for involvement in the Gunpowder Plot.
