At a Morning Mass in France

This morning, a Muslim murdered three people at morning Mass, in Nice, in France. One of the worshippers, a 70 year old woman, was apparently beheaded.

These people were killed for one reason alone: they were Catholics.

Such a thing is beyond my comprehension.

Also beyond my comprehension is this: the lack of anger among so many of my fellow Catholics, including among our bishops.

What happened in Nice wasn’t a “tragedy.” It was an atrocity. What happened in Nice doesn’t call for “dialogue.” It calls for condemnation. The murderer wasn’t someone who failed to understand his Islamic faith. He was someone who understood it all too well. The murderer also wasn’t a Frenchman, whatever his citizenship may have been. He was an alien, who never should have been allowed to be in France.

Men of the West, wake up!

  • Cardinal Sarah had no problem condemning it specifically as an act Islamic terrorism. Furthermore, he stated that it needs to be countered with force. Francis and Parolin could not bring themselves to utter the dreaded “I” word and had nothing to say about the necessity of resistance to such barbarism.
