From American Values newsletter:
Cardinal Robert Sarah of Guinea, who currently leads the Vatican’s liturgy office, is issuing a clarion call to the West and staking out positions at odds with Pope Francis, especially on the issue of mass migration. Consider this excerpt from a recent interview with Cardinal Sarah:
“I am convinced that western civilization is passing at present through a mortal crisis. It has reached the extreme of self-destructive hate. . . As a bishop, it is my duty to warn the West! The barbarians are already inside the city.
“The barbarians are all those who hate human nature, all those who trample upon the sense of the sacred, all those who do not value life, all those who rebel against God the Creator of man and nature. . .
“At the same time, the silent tragedy of abortion and euthanasia continue, and pornography and gender ideology destroy children and adolescents. We are accustomed to barbarism. It doesn’t even surprise us anymore! . . .
“How could I not emphasize the threat posed by Islamism? Muslims despise the atheistic West. They take refuge in Islamism as a rejection of the consumer society that is offered to them as a religion. . . A West that denies its faith, its history, its roots, and its identity is destined for contempt, for death, and disappearance.”
In another interview, Sarah warns that mass migration has become “a new form of slavery” that Christians should resist. He again warns:
“If the West continues in this fatal way, there is a great risk that, due to a lack of birth, it will disappear. . . If Europe disappears . . . Islam will invade the world. And we will totally change culture, anthropology, and moral vision.”
There are Muslim members of congress who do nothing but denigrate Israel, Jews, and any American who supports them. They do not support the Constitution, not really, but they will use the freedoms the Constitution provides to slander anything and anyone not aligned with their Islamic belief.
The trouble is there are a lot of people on the Left — Democrats mostly — who are also guilty of trampling on the Constitution in order to forward their agenda of open borders, legalized abortion, socialized medicine (Medicare for All), blatant censorship of their opponents (the Johnson Amendment is an example), growing the welfare state, increased taxes, gun control, indoctrination through education, a weakened military, and the loss of freedom of religion.
They turn a blind eye and deaf ear to things that don’t fit or promote their agenda, and they are the farthest thing from what the Founding Fathers pictured as members of the United States Congress.
Nationalism has become a bad word, but only to those who want it to be so. “Putting America First” has been wrongly associated with “white nationalism” and “white supremacy” for too long, and we won’t even mention “Make America Great Again.”
The problem in Congress is that too many of them stopped being true Americans–they are no more patriots than the symbol of the party to which they belong.
Elephants and donkeys in a horse and pony show. A lot of self-centered, entitled rhetoric, but no action that benefits the people or the country.
The United States Congress needs to start being the American Congress.
