Dies irae, dies illa

Just in time for Christmas we come again to the Presbyterians cheer leading for killers. Presbyterians who engage in terrorism, who are directly responsible for murdering men, women and children, people who are my friends, people I lived among thanks to their generosity and kindness, people who are lovely and worthy of life and the peace everyone is entitled to. But, our Presbyterians think not, preferring rather to kill my friends.

There are those who will stand up to Death and play him till the end. Those would be the ones who love life. I'm one. You will meet me.

Presbyters: I will not stand for this. Any Presbyter in a land outside the law is fair game for those who follow the law, and that's all there is to say of it.

Hezbollah official Nabil Qawuq is undoubtedly a busy man. As Hezbollah's commander in Southern Lebanon, Qawuq is responsible for leading the bulk of the Shi'ite terrorist group's combat forces, while frequently overseeing attacks on Israeli positions and attempts to kidnap Israeli soldiers or civilians. A confidante of Hezbollah General Secretary Hassan Nasrallah, Qawuq is also a fixture on Al-Jazeera and Lebanese television, his appearances generously mottled with calls for the destruction of the Jewish state.

Nevertheless, Qawuq recently found the time in his busy schedule to meet with -- of all things -- a church group. On October 20th, a delegation from the Presbyterian Church of the USA (PCUSA) met with Qawuq and other Hezbollah leaders for an hour in southern Lebanon as part of their three-week regional tour. Led by the head of the Chicago Presbytery Reverend Bob Reynolds, the meeting was convened for supposedly "educational" purposes, with Reverend Reynolds suggesting "I think one way people can learn from one another is to learn the way people talk about themselves and describe their own reality."

Unfortunately, the conversations which took place between the two parties were anything but realistic. Quwaq opened the conference with a lengthy harangue against the "chaos" and "fear" created by President Bush and "American policy," whose true purpose he defined roughly as enabling Ariel Sharon to "turn Lebanon into a bridge to harm Syria." Eager to endear himself to the perturbed Hezbollah commander, PCUSA delegation spokesman Robert Worley, a retired seminary professor, assured Quwaq that all delegation members had voted for John Kerry. Furthermore, Worley promised his host to help disavow Americans of the notion -- impressed upon them by the Western media -- that Hezbollah was a terrorist group, stating:

"Americans hear in the Western media that Hizbullah is a terrorist organization, and they do not hear any other opinion. They know nothing about the party's concern for the people of the south."

Worley then pointed out that Hezbollah and his church share similar goals, along with comparable opponents: Continue reading "Devenny: The Church of Jihad"--

(Germans Hanged.)

Christmas, and the filthy Presbyters are out to kill my friends, smiling. These sanctimonious scums will find themselves facing the wrath of God someday, and it's a day I long to witness. Presbyter scum: I hate you.

Dies irae, dies illa
solvet saeclum in favilla,
teste David cum Sybilla.

Quantus tremor est futurus,
quando judex est venturus,
cuncta stricte discussurus.

Tuba mirum spargens sonum
per sepulchra regionum,
coget omnes ante thronum.

Mors stupebit et natura,
cum resurget creatura,
judicanti responsura.

Liber scriptus proferetur,
in quo totum continetur,
unde mundus judicetur.

Judex ergo cum sedebit,
quidquid latet apparebit,
nil inultum remanebit.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus?
Quem patronum rogaturus,
cum vix justus sit securus?

Rex tremendae majestatis,
qui salvandos salvas gratis,
salva me, fons pietatis.

Recordare Jesu pie,
quod sum causa tuae viae,
ne me perdas illa die.

Quaerens me sedisti lassus,
redemisti crucem passus,
tantus labor non sit cassus.

Juste judex ultionis,
donum fac remissionis
ante diem rationis.

Ingemisco tanquam reus,
culpa rubet vultus meus,
supplicanti parce, Deus.

Qui Mariam absolvisti,
et latronem exaudisti,
mihi quoque spem dedisti.

Preces meae non sunt dignae,
sed tu, bonus, fac benigne,
ne perenni cremer igne.

Inter oves locum praesta,
et ab hoedis me sequestra,
statuens in parte dextra.

Confutatis maledictis,
flammis acribus addictis,
voca me cum benedictis.

Oro supplex et acclinis,
cor contritum quasi cinis,
gere curam mei finis.

Lacrimosa dies illa,
qua resurget ex favilla

judicandus homo reus -
Huic ergo parce, Deus.

Pie Jesu Domine,
dona eis requiem.

Merry Christmas Dag!

"I think one way people can learn from one another is to learn the way people talk about themselves and describe their own reality."

Freakin' liberal preacher... I can see why you were so PO'd.

I saw a damned liberal minister on CSPN1 the other day, debating a conservative. Of course he was blowing the usual communist horse shit about the government feeing the poor, etc, etc, BIG government = good.

Anyhow, at the end they each had a couple minutes to summarize and then the CSPAN guy thanked both of them. The minister butted in and said "I'm hoping that next time CSPAN can find a guest worthy of debating a representative of the mainline churches."


What an arrogant SOB! I've never seen anyone do anything so rude and disgusting before on CSPAN..

I wiped out my prior comment. Hey, it's Christmas. I feel OK about taking a day off from this. I'm having some egg nog and diet soda, some oranges and cookies, and later it's dinner with a crowd. It's all simple and pleasant, not at all do do with saving opressed peoples or feeding the homeless or anything grand like that. I think it's close to real living, regardless.

But it's also the end of the world as we know it. I look forward to it. I rejoice. I feel that we, though we might be the Wrath of God, are blessed to be alive to live this great life in our time.

Looking forward to the coming year.
