Pope: Proclaiming the Gospel Not an Assault on Freedom

    Zenit: Francis commented on an obstacle to evangelization that comes from the idea that “proclaiming the truth of the Gospel means an assault on freedom.” Quoting Paul VI in Evangelii Nuntiandi, he said: “It would be … an error to impose something on the consciences of our brethren. But to propose to their consciences the truth of the Gospel and salvation in Jesus Christ, with complete clarity and with total respect for free options which it presents … is a tribute to this freedom.”

“Pro-Choice” Violence Escalates Worldwide

    Rai’s Mundo: A Catholic Archbishop is savaged in Belgium; protestors at a Catholic Church in Spain block exits and doors; in Chile demonstrators interrupt Mass, demolish confessionals, rip out pews and paint profane sacrilegious graffiti throughout the church. Pro-abortion feminists under the guise of promoting “choice” carried out these and other attacks in the last few months. Their actions make it seem that they have declared war on the Catholic Church with no regard for parishioners, common decency or law. Welcome to the pro-choice Jihad.

There are also strict restrictions on Ramadan, including bans on iftar meals and closer than normal state surveillance of everyone attending mosques to pray.
