Belgium Bishops and Illegal Immigration

You see this outside your church you know something is wrong

UPDATE: Its not just European Catholics but Protestants also. On Palm Sunday a Protestant church celebrated the birth of Mohammad! Mohammad, the writer of the violent, hateful passages I blogged about. What the %^$%!

The pastor said "“Today we remember the birth and life of Muhammad and the beginning of the week of the passion of Christ, leading to Good Friday, the day Jesus of Nazareth was crucified.”

Maybe he should read Catholicgauze on the Koran!

The issue of illegal immigration is complex beyond imagination. I have my own opinions on the matter but they are irrelevant to what I am going to blog about.

Belgium Bishops have allowed illegal immigrants to stay in cathedrals out of belief the government will respect church property. Everything was going well until many of the people taking shelter, mostly Muslims, began to desecrate the church. Banners stating "Allah" were hung up on the church, the Virgin Mary was covered up so not to offend the Muslims, and the alter was moved so a mini-Mosque could be created.

The Church offers service to others "not because they are Catholics, but because we are Catholics." That's a great way of thinking and doing charity but what about keeping a Church sacred and being proud of one's beliefs?

I think you mean "sacred" not "scared."

Hmmm.

Does the Catholic Church own that church?

Doesn't that church require new set of official rites to reconsecrate it?

Catholicgauze said...

Yes that is owned by the Catholic Church. I have no idea if rites need to be down to reconsecrate it. Maybe they should start putting out the fires lit in it!

I agree. Its one thing to help those who need help; it is another thing to allow the House of God to be turned into a mosque!
