Formerly the Thinking Catholic Strategic Center
It's been five years already.
It is of vital importance to any carnivore that feeds on chameleons to somehow keep his eye on a chameleon once he spots one. The chameleon changes color to match his background; if he thinks it didn’t work, he can move in a flash and change again. Like the Leprechaun of Irish folklore, if you take your eyes off of him for even an instant, he's gone forever. You've lost your chance. Start all over again.
That pretty well describes our enemy in the current War On Terror. Some of them are among us. Some of them are over there in Iraq, or Iran, or Afghanistan, or Gaza or wherever. Some of them are in training camps, some of them are in caves, some of them are in ordinary houses in Lebanon, some of them are being converted and/or recruited, right now, somewhere.
As our thoughts go back to that more innocent time, immediately before the horrific Islamic slaughter of thousands of innocents on American soil on September 11, 2001, we wonder how we could have been so incredibly naive and trusting. And if we can ever be so trusting again. Our prayers for all of our innocent fallen, and for the self-sacrificial offerings of our First Responders, and for our men and women in uniform carrying the fight out to the enemy, such as they are, must include prayers for the opening of our own eyes.
Lord, that we might see. We need to see the enemy for what he is, wherever he is. Most especially, our leaders need to clearly see, and recognize, the real enemy.
I have spoken elsewhere in this website about the Islamic Jihadists and their bloody resolve to kill us all, if they can. Recognizing that they are a minority among Moslems does not in any way lessen the fact that they are all Moslems. The fact that all Moslems do not become external Jihadists does not lessen the fact that external Jihadism comes out of Islam, quite exclusively. And, we have before us the fact that most non-external Jihadist Moslems give support, in some way, to external Jihadism. It's a religious thing.
If your Islamic child, or nephew, or whatever, becomes an Islamic "martyr" while butchering up or bombing some innocent non-Moslem(s), not only does he collect all his virgins, but he gets to point out seventy people who get a free pass into heaven. Quite a religious inducement for you to, at least, approve of your son's or nephew’s external Jihadism, if not encourage it.
The only reason for the Islamic jizya poll-tax for un-believers is that there is no real economic benefit to be gotten from a corpse. Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them is the order of the day. The only escape from it is found in Fight those who do not profess the true faith till they pay the jizya with the hand of humility. So, along with other "submissive" un-believers, so long as you pay all of the nation's taxes in your jizya payments, you will be allowed to live as a second-class, subservient citizen of the country. Otherwise, you die.
You can immediately see that Islam is completely incompatible with Judaism, Christianity, atheism, agnosticism, Marxism, Democracy, Capitalism, Socialism, Communism, Hinduism, Animism, and everything-else-ism. Islam is absolutely intolerant of any and all non-Islamic options.
How do they evangelize? Submit or I'll kill you. Once converted to Islam, if you ever convert to anything else, you thereby incur a death penalty upon yourself. I'm sure you'll agree that this is a stronger approach than that of any other evangelist who ever knocked on your door. Say an extra prayer for anyone who actually evangelizes among Moslems; they stand to be killed just as soon as someone feels like killing them.
The smiling mass murderers who perpetrated the acts of 09/11/2001 came out of Islam. Never forget that. They didn't come out of anything other than Islam. Not radical Islam; not militant Islam; not hi-jacked Islam; not Wahaabist Islam; not Islamo-Fascism; not Islamic extremism; not any other name you can put to it.
Islam is the evil seedbed that continuously and relentlessly produces the gruesome monsters who are capable of the kinds of deeds perpetrated on 09/11/2001.
Islam is absolutely incompatible with Judaism, Christianity, and America. The fact that it is incompatible with everything else is quite remarkable, but the important thing here is that it is incompatible with America. We cannot tolerate something that is that intolerant. Islam is so dangerous as to be intolerable. If we allow it to exist within our shores, it will eventually destroy us.
We need a special Amendment to our Constitution restricting and/or prohibiting the practice of Islam in America. Our existing First Amendment contains the path through which Islam will destroy us, if it can. Here it is:
I submit for your consideration the argument that granting Islam the right to free exercise in American will eventually lead to the loss of every other right enumerated in that Amendment, and every other Amendment. Islam exists for the purpose of expanding itself, at the expense of everything non-Islamic. Which includes every institution in America, and America itself.
The way to fight Islamic Jihadism is not with a meat-axe, but with a scalpel, and a willingness to go wherever in the world it is identified. The way to fight the false religion and ideology of Islam is as is being done now, through the promotion of real Democratic choice among people who never had it before. Real Democracy and Islam are incompatible. Wherever Democracy grows stronger, Islam will grow weaker. Once civil government is wrested from the hands of the clerics, belief options will become more voluntary and less mandatory. A situation that can only improve with time.
Never forget that your free will, and God's grace, are involved in your salvation journey. Not just submission to someone holding a sword. Your real, free will, exercised without any impediment or threat. Otherwise, it is not your free will. Here, in this principle, lies the falsehood of Islam. Free will versus blind submission. Free will is what we Americans are about.
If we stick to our Constitutional principles and allow the free growth of Islamic communities in America, the short-term experience will produce murderers of innocents among us, and the long-term experience will produce increasingly dangerous enclaves of unassimilated Moslems, becoming increasingly fierce as time goes on. And they will grow, as they are doing in Eurabia now. The more we stick to our religious toleration, the more dangerous these communities will become, and eventually they will take over.
There must be a Constitutional exception made for Islam, the only major religion that is completely intolerant of any other options. Islam is only peaceful temporarily, when it is beneficial to be peaceful, because it is too weak in an environment to be other than peaceful. But Islam is deceitful, deceptive, treacherous, and as changeable as the chameleon.
May the Lord bless all First Responders this day.
And may He bless all Americans in uniform, wherever they may be.
And may God bless the USA.

Do You know? Between the years 1962 and 1982 the military of the USA, France and Great Britain conducted many nuclear tests in the pacific area. Many people died in following of these processes. Could it be that the terror attacks were acts of revenge?

That’s an interesting possibility. Personally I like the theory of revenge by extra terrestrial alien life forms in revenge for our transmitting so much garbage over the airwaves, in an attack secretly ordered by their secret agent-in-disguise, Nancy Pelosi, who is secretly Queen of the hidden planet Stupider.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

These are the pages that explore the dichotomy between what Benjamin Franklin called "our American religion," which is General Christianity, and waging war.
Necessity of War pages
Whether man wants war or not, it is best to be prepared for war so long as evil exists, and evil will exist until Christ comes again. Even Heaven itself was not free of war.
Unavoidable existence of evil and the periodic Necessary War. So long as evil exists, necessary war will be fought, lest the Church and "Good" be extinguished on earth.
The Necessity of War: Is there such a thing? Do we ever need war? The Thinking Catholic looks at the seemingly perpetual argument over the very Necessity of War.
America's Limited War Doctrine: A Fatal Flaw. Since Korea, top-level American war strategy has been terribly flawed. (Note well that the Korean "war" is not even over with, and we are still there, at this late date.)
The Bush War Doctrine Revisited: a fresh look at our horrible situation. A reproduction of the "Bush War Doctrine Revisited" article and discussion points by David Yerushalmi; there is much food for thought here.
For God and Country – More Thoughts on America, and on National Existence. For God and Country: Comparisons of martyrdom and heroism, Sovereign Nationhood Vs. Internationalism, distinct people-hood Vs. the Global Village, and Godliness Vs. godlessness.
How Cronkite and the SLIMC lost the Vietnam War for America. With the whole SLIMC overwhelmingly Marxist, the Reds couldn't possibly loose politically and publicly that which they couldn't posssibly win militarily in the Vietnam war.
The End Game; Marxism & Islam join hands beneath the smoke of world chaos. This could be the end game, it could be the beginning of World War Three, or, just another global depression.
World Revolution returns with a vengeance: the rebirth of Marxism. Marxist world revolution returns, and faces far less opposition than in 1848 or the period between the Great Wars.
Again, it's Israel up against what appears to be the whole pea-picking world. Weak lip-service and pretty speeches aside, America is Israel's only real ally. And, as war is imposed upon her again, even many Americans are lukewarm in their support. Why?
The latest Israeli conflict is little different from all the previous ones. The first Israeli conflict with her neighbors, and every one since then, has been a simple matter of self defense.
From 1768 through 1776 the Brits vainly attempted gun control in the Colonies. The British feared that, absent "gun control", the militias in the colonies could become as "regulated" and fearsome as the British "Regulars" themselves.
American Military Assault Weapons originally intended in the 2nd Amendment. To miss the point of the 2nd Amendment is to miss the point of the whole Constitution.
CCW Entrapment discusses the legal dangers of legal carrying. George Zimmerman is a victim of CCW Entrapment and Sponsored Racial Polarization.
Thoughts in remembrance of 09/11/2001, five years later. The changing shape of the war, the changing shape of the enemy.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
