Over Ninety Percent of Austrians Voted for Adolph Hitler’s Takeover

“Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.”

This is my eye-witness account

How the Nazis attempted to co-opt authentic Christianity for their own nefarious purposes

Once in power, the Nazis immediately started rewriting the Christian dogmas. First of all, they took up genealogy of Jesus Christ. The Son of God had become a preacher of Nazi ideas. Naturally, all references to the Jewish roots of Jesus were crossed out.

Several theories were made up. According to one of them, Christ was the son of a Roman legionary. Another claimed that the ancestors of Jesus came from the Caucasus.

In 1939 in Eisenach the Nazis created a special theological Institute dedicated to eliminate anything Jewish. The employees of the institute crossed out all references to the Jewish role in Christianity from the biblical texts.

Walter Grundmann, Director of the Institute, said that the Gospel Jesus must become the “savior of only our own, the German people.” “Gott mit uns,” coined on the Wehrmacht belt buckles and the Waffen-SS meant just that. God was only on the side of the Nazi movement.

“Abortion for Polish women introduced by Hitler on March 9, 1943.”

Polish pro-lifers erected the Hitler billboard to coincide with the March 8 celebration of International Women’s Day, when Polish feminists organize marches and demand abortion without limits. This billboard will certainly stymie that hoopla.

The billboard is located on a major thoroughfare.

HAARETZ: Editorial in defense of Ven. Pius XII

The campaign against Pope Pius XII is doomed to failure because his detractors cannot sustain their main charges against him – that he was silent, pro-Nazi, and did little or nothing to help the Jews – with evidence. Perhaps only in a backward world such as ours would the one man who did more than any other wartime leader to help Jews and other Nazi victims, receive the greatest condemnation.

Mario Cuomo shooting his mouth off again, this time about Notre Dame

linknews latestpix

According to (former New York Governor) Mario Cuomo and the Associated Press: “The president’s appearance at Notre Dame will not in any way serve as an acceptance or condonation of his position on abortion and stem cells, but rather will provide the university the opportunity to reject — freely and clearly — those positions for all the world to hear and read,” Cuomo wrote.

“Better that confident and respectful stance by the university than a defensive and impolite insult to our nation’s respected and singularly important world leader, who demonstrated his respect to Notre Dame by agreeing to come to the university.”

Editor’s note:

Adolph Hitler was also a respected and singularly important world leader who demonstrated his “respect” by coming to Poland, unleashing the Blitzkrieg on his peaceful and unsuspecting neighbors, starting WWII.

With the Dems trotting out Cuomo, we can now be absolutely sure that Obama is very, very worried about his part in the Notre Dame scandal … and well he should be.

Notre Dame is going to be a lose – lose for Obama and the Democrats … whether Obama shows up … or not … and whether he speaks there … or not.

Mario Cuomo’s comments  prove that he is a political hack, a shill, a coward, a fool, a disgrace to his Italian heritage, and a scandal to authentic Catholics, everywhere.

Cuomo is Obama’s very own Neville Chamberlain! 

This is the type of stuff that happens to faithless politicians when they become hopelessly corrupted by power and money.

Unfortunately, Cuomo has LOTS of company!  

Is Tax Exemption the New Thirty Pieces of Silver?

Pope Pius XI and the future Pope Pius XII warned Germany about this madman.

Will Catholic bishops warn America about the madmen running for office this November?


Before November, America Needs It’s Own “Mit Brennender Sorge”

Or is Tax Exemption the New Thirty Pieces of Silver? 

 

by Dr. Peter Frey

(Posted August 28, 2008 http://www.RemnantNewspaper.com) Throughout history, there have been repeated clashes between the Catholic Church and secular governments of one form or another. In several cases, priests and bishops stood up courageously to challenge an all-powerful despotism. Two English bishops, St Thomas Becket and St John Fisher, did this at the cost of their lives: Becket for defending the temporal rights of the Church versus King Henry II, Fisher the lone prelate to oppose the usurpation of Church power by Henry VIII by opposing his adulterous marriage. In the twentieth century, a similar clash developed between the Church and Nazi Germany.

The venerable and courageous Pope Pius XI drafted an encyclical with the title “Mit Brennender Sorge” (“With burning concern”) addressed to the German episcopate. The actual author was the then Secretary of State, Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII. Written in German, rather than Latin as was customary, the encyclical condemned the racist and pagan atheism of the Nazi regime, and the exaltation of the state or the “Volk” above God and Church. The document was smuggled into Germany and was read from the pulpit of every German church at Mass on Passion Sunday, 1937. Thus the Pope’s views on the totalitarian state were made known PUBLICLY. No German Catholic could claim ignorance of the Church’s teaching, nor did it leave any “wiggle room” for equivocation or “misunderstanding.” Reading it at Sunday Mass was a dramatic method to inform German Catholics. It caused a huge reaction across the country, and quite obviously enraged Hitler and his regime, which then began an intense persecution of the Church.

Today in the United States, there is another conflict between the stated views of society on important issues, the most important of which are abortion and homosexuality versus the teachings of the church. Ever since the Roe vs. Wade court decision, American society has created a “right” for women to “choose” an abortion. Several states have passed laws changing the concept of holy matrimony beyond its God-defined end as between one man and one woman. In Catholic moral teaching, NO ONE, and no state has any authority over the moral order or the natural law. Thus American society and the Roman Catholic Church are on a collision course.

What is most alarming is the fact that, unlike Nazi Germany, we live in a free society, where the citizen can exercise his rights, where open elections are held, and where civic responsibility is part of our national heritage. With the Church’s teaching being very well known, with instant media access, no one in America can claim not to know what is going on concerning these important civil and moral issues.
