Western civilization predates Christianity, true. However, 1,700 years of influence made a considerable impression. Until the immediate post-modern era, Europe and Christendom were synonymous. That is rapidly changing. And one Italian Bishop is alarmed.
Everyone in Italy and the rest of Europe will “soon be Muslim” because of the country’s “stupidity”, a prominent Italian archbishop has said.
Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s main religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.
Speaking to Italian Catholic journal La Fede Quotidiana, the archbishop said: “In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism.
“All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam.”
“We have a weak Christian faith,” he added. “The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty.
“Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.”
The archbishop added that the problem is not just Muslim immigration. The number of Eastern Europeans arriving over the past few years has also hit the quality of life for native Italians, he said.
“We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash,” the archbishop said. “We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed.
“I am a protester. If I were not a priest, I’d be out there demonstrating in the squares. What is the point of so many migrants that instead of thanking for the food we give them, they just throw it, spend hours with their cell phones and even organise riots?”
He even criticised the Catholic Church for giving money to migrants.
“Giving money to migrants wandering around town is not only wrong, but morally harmful because we encourage their behaviour and they get used to that, not mentioning the fact that we already feed them.
“I think sometimes this creates a beggars’ network. I remember that my father went to work very hard as a migrant in Australia so I could go to seminary. So he has experienced in his own skin the discomfort of poverty and the noble virtue of gratitude.”
I think 10 years is a little too alarmist. It’s looking more like 30 – 50, by the demographics. Still, that is alarming enough. Especially considering that the recent invaders categorically denounce Christianity, western civilization, and everything that goes with them. Utter incompatibility.
That the Church – and I’ve mentioned this more than a few times – actively supports its own extermination is unconscionable. I’m glad someone in a position of authority sees it the same way. I also look for Monsignor Liberati (an appropriate name!) to be put out to pasture for his heretical outlook. He already sports the “Emeritus” title. Is full (forced) retirement too far away?
And things keep on changing. There is a huge and growing opposition to the Islamic and non-Western invasion. Politically, the phenomenon has run it’s course. I look for a reversal (or a war) in the coming decade. As Vox Day noted, 2017 will be the year when the natives begin to push back violently against their hateful attackers. It has already begun.
Of course, the real problem is with the Christians, not the Muslims. As Liberati notes, they have failed to live as they should and are now reaping the rewards. A century of idiotic, fratricidal war and socialism/secularism does that. Hopefully the 21st century will see a reversal, a revival, and a reconstitution of Christendom.
If not, we’re looking at another dark age. It won’t matter whether it’s a steeple or a minaret, the town will be in ruins. At least some are aware.
