"Islam Is Strengthening In Europe... With The Blessing Of The Church"

  • There are now many Catholic commentators who are questioning the Church's blindness about the danger Europe is facing.
  • "Islam has every chance massively to strengthen its presence in Europe with the blessing of the Church.... the Church is not only leading Europe to an impasse, it is also shooting itself in the foot." — Laurent Dandrieu, cultural editor of the French magazine Valeurs Actuelles.
  • "It is clear that Muslims have an ultimate goal: conquering the world...Islam, through the sharia, their law...allows violence against the infidels, such as Christians....And what is the most important achievement? Rome." — Cardinal Raymond Burke, interview, Il Giornale.
  • "[T]hey are not refugees, this is an invasion, they come here with cries of 'Allahu Akbar', they want to take over." — Laszlo Kiss Rigo, head of the Catholic Hungarian southern community.
  • François Fillon published a book entitled, Vanquishing Islamic Totalitarianism, and he rose in the polls by vowing to control Islam and immigration: "We've got to reduce immigration to its strict minimum," Fillon said. "Our country is not a sum of communities, it is an identity!"

Everyone in Italy and the rest of Europe will "soon be Muslim" because of our "stupidity", warned Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompei. Liberati claimed that, thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans, Islam will soon become the main religion of Europe. "All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam", Archbishop Liberati explained.

Décadence is also the title of a new book by the French philosopher Michel Onfray, in which he suggests that the Judeo-Christian era may have come to an end. He compares the West and Islam: "We have nihilism, they have fervor; we are exhausted, they have a great health; we have the past for us; they have the future for them".

Archbishop Liberati belongs to a growing branch of Catholic leaders who refuse to see the future belonging to Islam in Europe. They speak in open opposition to Pope Francis, who does not seem too impressed by the collapse of Christianity due to falling birth rates, accompanied by religious apathy and its replacement by Islam.

Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompei (left) belongs to a growing branch of Catholic leaders who refuse to see the future belonging to Islam in Europe, and who speak in open opposition to Pope Francis (right).

Pope Francis's official vision is personified by Bishop Nunzio Galantino, who was appointed by the Pontiff as the Secretary General of Italy's Bishops. Last December, Galantino gave an interview in which he dismissed any religious motivation behind jihadist attacks and claimed that, instead, "money" is what is behind them.

There are now many Catholic commentators who are questioning the Church's blindness about the danger Europe is facing. One is the cultural editor of the French magazine Valeurs Actuelles, Laurent Dandrieu, who writes:

"Islam has every chance massively to strengthen its presence in Europe with the blessing of the Church. The Church is watching the establishment of millions of Muslims in Europe... and Muslim worship in our continent as an inescapable manifestation of religious freedom. But the civilizational question is simply never asked .... By breaking away from the Europe's indigenous peoples and their legitimate concerns, the Church is not only leading Europe to an impasse, it is also shooting itself in the foot".

Dandrieu lists Pope Francis' gestures and speeches in favor of Islam and migrants:

"On October 1, 2014, the Pope received Eritrean survivors of a shipwreck off Lampedusa; on 8 February 2015, he made a surprise visit to a refugee camp in Ponte Mammolo, northeast of Rome; on April 18, he used the first official visit of the new Italian president, Sergio Mattarella, to demand 'a much larger commitment' for migrants; on 6 September 2015, at the conclusion of the Angelus in St Peter's Square, he called for 'every parish, religious community, monastery and sanctuary in Europe to host a family' of refugees; on March 24, 2016, he chose to celebrate the Holy Thursday in a structure housing 900 refugees, and to wash the feet to twelve asylum seekers; on May 28, he received children whose parents died in a boat that sank, filled with migrants; during the general audience of June 22, Francis went down to the crowd to bring back fifteen refugees".

But as Liberati's case demonstrates, resistance to Pope Francis' vision of Europe is growing inside the Catholic Church.

"It is clear that Muslims have an ultimate goal: conquering the world", Cardinal Raymond Burke said.

"Islam, through the sharia, their law, wants to rule the world and allows violence against the infidels, like Christians. But we find it hard to recognize this reality and to respond by defending the Christian faith (...) I have heard several times an Islamic idea: 'what we failed to do with the weapons in the past we are doing today with the birth rate and immigration'. The population is changing. If this keeps up, in countries such as Italy, the majority will be Muslim (...) Islam realizes itself in the conquest. And what is the most important achievement? Rome".

The first to denounce this dramatic trend was Italy's most important missionary, Father Piero Gheddo, who said that, due to falling fertility and Muslim fervor, "Islam would sooner rather than later conquer the majority in Europe". These concerns do not belong only to the Conservative wing of the Catholic Church.

Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna and a candidate tipped to be the next Pope, is very close to Pope Francis, and is a centrist. Last September, on the anniversary of the Siege of Vienna, when Turkey's Ottoman troops nearly conquered Europe, Schönborn delivered a dramatic appeal to save Europe's Christian roots. "Many Muslims want and say that 'Europe is finished'", Cardinal Schönborn said, before accusing Europe of "forgetting its Christian identity". He then denounced the possibility of "an Islamic conquest of Europe".

After a Tunisian, who arrived among a flood of migrants into Germany, murdered 12 people at a Christmas market in Berlin, the Catholic archbishop of the German capital, Heiner Koch, another "moderate" Catholic leader appointed by Pope Francis, also sounded a warning: "Perhaps we focused too much on the radiant image of humanity, on the good. Now in the last year, or perhaps also in recent years, we have seen: No, there is also evil".

The head of the Czech Roman Catholic Church, Miloslav Vlk, also warned about the threat of Islamization. "Muslims in Europe have many more children than Christian families; that is why demographers have been trying to come up with a time when Europe will become Muslim", Cardinal Vlk claimed. He also blamed Europe itself for the Islamic takeover:

"Europe will pay dearly for having left its spiritual foundations; this is the last period that will not continue for decades when it may still have a chance to do something about it. Unless the Christians wake up, life may be Islamised and Christianity will not have the strength to imprint its character on the life of people, not to say society".

Cardinal Dominik Duka, Archbishop of Prague and Primate of Bohemia, has also questioned Pope Francis' "welcoming culture".

Among the Eastern Catholic bishops there are many voices raising concerns about Europe's demographic and religious revolution. One belongs to the leader of the Catholics in Lebanon, who paid an extremely high price for the Islamization of their own country, including murder and exile, and now see the danger coming to Europe itself. "I have heard many times from Muslims that their goal is to conquer Europe with two weapons: faith and the birth rate", Cardinal Bechara Rai said.

Another voice belongs to the French-born Bishop Paul Desfarges, who heads the diocese of Constantine in Algeria: "It's no surprise that Islam has taken on such importance", Desfarges said. "It's an issue that concerns Europe". Sydney Cardinal George Pell then urged "a discussion of the consequences of the Islamic presence in the Western world". Pell was echoed by Laszlo Kiss Rigo, the head of the Catholic Hungarian southern community, who said that "they are not refugees, this is an invasion, they come here with cries of 'Allahu Akbar', they want to take over".

On the political level, there is another a tendency, that of strong Catholic leaders who challenge Pope Francis on the Islamic question and immigration. The most important is the French presidential candidate François Fillon, one of the first politicians who "doesn't hide the fact that he's Catholic". Fillon published a book entitled, Vanquishing Islamic Totalitarianism, and he rose in the polls by vowing to control Islam and immigration: "We've got to reduce immigration to its strict minimum," Fillon said. "Our country is not a sum of communities, it is an identity!"

These politicians, bishops and cardinals might convince Pope Francis not to abandon Europe, the cradle of Christianity and Western civilization, to a looming dark fate. Michel Onfray wrote at the end of his book: "Judeo-Christianity ruled for two millennia. An honorable period for a civilization. The boat now sinks: we can only sink with elegance". It is urgent now to prevent that.

Chatolics created Islam so that they get rif off the new Christian cults proliferating in the Middle East at that time. Now, under the threat of secular humanism they use Islam to dive Europe into a medieval radical religious fascist soup - muslim and christian.

Close - it was the Jews who created both Christianity as well as Islam.  Both of which have made careers out of prosetlyzing, but you've got to have a jewish mom in order to be Full Tribe.  People dont even realize that this whole Jewish mom thing is actually inside information that they could not have obtained unless they were in league with forces that want to enslave the globe.  (Its the X chromosome thing and the reason why a chromosome trail ends when a female does not have a daughter.) 


The last genetic modification that produced homo sapiens was done without authorization, and the global enslavement project is retaliation.

As an athesit, I don't have need for religion but I do believe the majority of the world does. With that said, Europe was the powerhouse of grand culture, civilization and science because of the Catholic Church. Islam does not belong in Europe. End of discussion. Islam has done NOTHING for this world except bring misery, create havoc and terror. I myself would glady join the crusades of this century if it ever comes to it to save my heritage and peoples from a miserable death cult called ISLAM! I don't think the EU is too far away from collapse if they remain on this same self-destructive course. I give it 4-5 years before the EU disintegrates or civil war if they do not immediately wake up.

Need to hear it from a former Muslim?

Europe was the powerhouse it was because of the Catholic Church?  Well that's new, and rich.  Also fkn delusional, and one can also bring up the fact that correlation is not causation.  It would of course be folly to overlook such entities as the Gregor Mendels, but please, to ascribe these developments as happening only because of some underlying bedrock of social cohesion that could not have existed without the catholic church is naught but a Believer's wet dream of history.

Also you neglect contributions from the Arabic side of the equations, apply your ruler in a completely different fashion than the prior context.


You sir are just a useful idiot.  (With all the malice of a professional umpire calling a strike on a batter.)


People do have spiritual needs, but Islam & Christianity forced itself upon the world like Uncle Joe with a 12 year old behind closed doors.

jus_lite_reading's picture

No, it was not the only factor but played a major role in human development. Study anthropology. The RCC created a system that kept the uncontrolables under control with the threat of either heaven or hell. I know there was lots of butchery and barbarism along the way but if not for that, we would not be where we are today. Love it or hate it, the RCC is owed our gratitude.

As far as your "believer" comment, what part of I'm an atheist don't you understand? YHWH is simply the name the Jews gave their "God" and the RCC ran with it starting in the 13th century when a Spanish monk created a name out of it from his ass. 


detached.amusement's picture

Why you assumed I called you a believer, I dont know.  That believers propagandize is known.  Simply a name, well, I wouldnt expect very many to have studied certain things to the depths that I have, so without that context then perhaps you wont see anything there.

Heaven & Hell kept everyone in line...and that was why...*chuckles and facepalms*  okay, bro...whatever you choose to believe, lol.

The simple fact is, you know who your mother is, but you don't know who your father is.

The simple fact is, that which you believe is your father is naught but a jewish magic lodge grimiore.  Catholics and Muslims are to be preyed upon and sucked off of.  Inconvenient to your beliefs, I'm sure, but you'll be turned upside down and will open a new set of eyes without ever realizing what happened to you.  Just like being roofied and raped, just without the butt pain in the morning, you just have your memory wiped instead.

Yhvh is a trojan fucking horse, little Believer.  Magick lodge grimiores are created just for this thing.  Protect those in the clan, hurt and destroy those not.  Christians and muslims are chattel cattle for the effendi.  Or perhaps you just like to dismiss the fact that yhvh requires blood sacrifices for anything of remote importance.  

I'm sure you'll also be revolted at the fact that pizzagate sacrifices fall into this category as well - ho ho ho, yeah its the israelis that set up and taped it all....cui bono?

Yeah, go to that light when you die, Believer.  *chuckles*

You mean the Talmudists created Islam as a tool to aid in the destruction of Christianity without the Talmudists being blamed for it.  You don't see any "ISIS" (aka Israeli Secret Intelligence Services) attacks in Israel, do you?

detached.amusement's picture

dingding, but only 2 dings because christianity was a similar construct


to be clear, I have nothing against the masses who believe - they are deluded on quite a few things

but students of the talmud, however...are ideological enemies of the human race, more or less


exoteric teachings are almost always flowery and feel goodey

when the esoteric is as vile and racist as the talmud...these fuckers have power in the world?  and we as the question why is the world so fucked up, lol

A little off topic, but the DNC organized two fake catholic front organizations: 'catholic alliance for the common good' and 'catholics united'  (https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/6293) neither of which is affiliated with the catholic church in any way.  

this is a sampling of the social justice issues that CACG pursue from their mass mailings (signed up on their website to take a look at them): 

- Jan 19 Thank you to the over 1100 of you who contacted your Member of Congress today to tell them to heed the wisdom of Pope Francis: "health care is a right, not a privilege!'

- Jan 25 Make no mistake: President's Trump wall is anti-Christian and a total affront to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

- Jan 28 Thank you for all of you who have stepped up today to fight President Trump's immoral executive order banning Muslim refugees from entering the United States.

- Jan 30 This past weekend over 2,000 of you contacted your Members of Congress to let them know that you won't stand for President Trump's ban of Muslim refugees.

 Each message also ends with a plea for donations. CACG's political orientation is manifestly clear.  I think these bastards have the right to their opinion, but alligning their political agenda with an organized faith  is very dangerous.  I think the hierarchy of the catholic church should disavow these 501c4 organizations.

From what I'm hearing a lot of priests are not exactly down with Francis. This pope is actually hated at the lower levels of the clergy. Someone told me recently that her priest actually suggested in a private conversation that Francis should be assassinated.

The purest form of Christianity, apart from the Oriental Orthodox Churches decimated by the US/Israeli/Saudi campaigns in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon... is the Orthodox Church.

Catholicism drifted far away long ago, but held a hot ember until Vatican 2.

The Evangelicals and other Judeo-Protestant snake handling cults worship 'Israel' in lieu of Christ, and are not Christian at all.


Jews drive the immivasion, then they gin up the flames of conflict.

Ireland has about 5k jews. One was placed in charge of immigration. Like the Bolsheviks hated the Russians, he hates the Irish, and he has yet to receive Justice.

"the Church is not only leading Europe to an impasse, it is also shooting itself in the foot."

No it is not. It is laying the groundwork for the next religious war, where it will strengthen its basis in Europe after annihilating Islam throughout the Christian world, in much the same way that the banks funded both the Nazis and the Bolsheviks leading to WWII. Because ultimately, Christianity and Islam cannot live together, so let them in, stir up the pot and let it boil over...

An interesting theory, but one I don't believe in. I also don't believe Western culture is dying out because it is old and tired; it is because it is under constant attack from every conceivable angle, most dangerously from its own leaders who waste no opportunity in favoring immigrants over locals.

As to why, who knows. The current generation of politicians were born directly after WW2, and might feel a strong need to selfdestruct over the horrors perpetuated during that war. Or maybe they believe the only way to save the planet is by eliminating the people using all those resources. Or perhaps they feel a dictatorship is easier to implement when ruling arabs instead of Europeans.

Our leadership has given up on us, and is bringing us to the gas chambers as surely as the German trains did the Jews during WW2. In the US the people saw that, and voted Trump. The question is whether the people in Europe will recognize their danger and vote Wilders, Le Pen, etc., or if they prefer the status quo and the slow slide into annihilation.

On a side note: I find it interesting that when Trump stopped birth control programs in the 3rd world, European politicians immediately jumped into the gap and pledged millions to continu those programs. Yet now he has stopped immigration from seven muslim nations, things are eerily quiet - not a single European politician is pledging free immigration from those countries in order to frustrate Trump. I suspect this quiet period will last precisely until the elections in Holland, Germany, and France have passed, after which the floodgates will be opened. I'd be happy to be proven wrong though.

Culture is a function of material/regional scarcity. The food you eat, the music you listen to, how that music is danced to, the philosophy of the region, the types of homes you live in, etc. These unique set of circumstances over time become an identity. In The West, most forms of these scarcity are gone, and only baser instincts drive human behavior. Oppulence is ending western culture. It will soon end asian cultures. We cannot cling to the past nor try to revert to it. The circumstances which fostered those ideas are gone. We need to be introspective, understand what worked about western culture, and adapt it.

Christianity will not win against Islam - that is a fantasy - the Jews will not allow Christianity to win. They want to wipe out both, but Christianity first as this is their greatest threat.

Once Christianity is wiped out by the Muslims (with plenty of help from the Jews), the Zionists will proceed to exterminate the Muslims, something they have been practicing for decades in Palestine and Gaza.

There have been many bad Popes. Ann Barnhardt would not like Alexander VI or Julian II either. What she does is refuse to acknowledge that Francis is the Pope. She could be right that Francis is an anti-pope, and that Benedict is still Pope. However, she is making a private judgement. Bishop Williamsom, who is also a traditionalist, though he is SSPX, believes that Francis is a legitimate, but bad Pope. I find AB to be very harsh in her judgements, though also a very fervent and inspired Catholic. I was put off when a woman who had had an abortion and was very sorry and penitent for it was nevertheless dragged over the coals by AB on her blog. Ann is very much a literalist about the "no salvation outside the Catholic Church" doctrine. While this has merit, one sees that even St. Pio claimed that a non-converted Jew, who was a very pious and good man, had gone to heaven, Bishop Williamson, himself referred to some Protestant clergymen as good men who simply lacked the fullness of revelation, or words to that effect. I believe that it is in this sense that the idea of no salvation outside the Church should be understood. But of course I could be wrong and Ann could be right.

The Roman Catholic Church itself is not legitimate, so there has never been a legitimate Pope.  Peter and Paul hated each other thoroughly.  Paul perverted Jesus's message and sold it to the Roman Empire as a tool the Empire could use to wipe out nationality in nations it conquered, to help the Empire govern those nations more easily.  The Roman Catholic Church is still in that same business.
