Poor Europe: This is what is was. Only God knows what it will be.


Historically, European identity was a matter of borders, language, and culture. A run at defining it was made by Hilaire Belloc in Europe and the Faith. Another by Christopher Dawson in Religion and the Rise of Western Culture. According to the late great Harvard Law Professor Harold Berman in Law And Revolution, Western identity is incomprehensible apart from the emergence of the papacy in the western Church. In fact, he refers to our time (accordingly), as "post-Western." Europe is undergoing an auto-demolition of its civilization that seems nearly irreversible ... although the narrator in the video ends on a note of hope.

Fr Ray Blake thinks differently; he thinks that any opposition to the mahometan invasion is not Christian.

He did not post my last comment which pointed out the failure of his country to defend the white your women against mahometan rapistsa nd ABS also noted the rape epidemic in Sweden, thanks to the Mahometans

Thanks ecumenism...

ABS was polite to Fr. Ray. He could have seized on his Germany comment and noted that his no-limits-can-be-set-by-Christians would have meant that Perfidious Albion could not have refused German immigrants in the late 1930s and 1940s.

There is a magnificent madness attached to ecumenism and if a christian objects to mahometans raping the daughters of european christians it is because of racism.
