Strange Things Are Afoot On Long Island
...and the Akita warnings grow ever louder
Hat Tip to my wayward Southern-Yankee buddy

Does anyone else remember reading in The Holy Bible when Jesus said something along the lines ot "no man will come to the Father except through Me"? Sure we do. In a nutshell, that's the entire basis for Christianity.

Well, don't tell that to the alleged Catholics at the Diocese of Rockville Centre on Long Island.

Get ready for this... members of the Secretariat for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (they're at it again. What a shocker, huh?) and representatives of the World Sikh Council included evenings of prayer and community meals at a Sikh house of worship in Glen Cove, prayer and discussions at Immaculate Conception Seminary here, and lunch with Bishop William Murphy.

Well isn't that ecumenical. But I have a silly question.... were any of those prayers directed at God? And I don't mean watered-down, ecumaniac, "I'm-OK-You're-OK" bastardized version of God. Call me old fashioned, but when I think "God", I kinda automatically think Father, Son, Holy Ghost. Don't you?

How many folks out there would like to bet paychecks that the good folks from the JIFC&CJS had no intention of converting our turbaned friends? While we're at it, who would like to wager that the same Roman Collared wolves in sheeps clothing were praying to the Sikhs "god of their understanding".

Does any of this ring a bell?

"The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres [other priests]...churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord."

And it just gets better --

"It was a joy being with you today," Bishop Murphy told the Sikh delegates following lunch on Oct. 6 at the seminary. "The dialogue has to grow," as both the nation and Long Island become more ethnically and religiously diverse, "and I think we are all going to learn from it."

What did The Holy Mother say about "accepting compromises"? I can't speak for Bishop Murphy, but this simple Catholic refuses to "learn" a damn thing from anyone who purposeful turns his back on Jesus. Like I said... call me old fashioned.

But my favorite passage from this article is this; (Keep in mind, this quote is directly from a so-called Catholic diocesan newspaper.)

"We practice a specific way to God," Butalia noted, but respect all other legitimate paths to God. Their beliefs stem from the teachings of the 10 Gurus (teachers who speak for God) beginning with their founder, Guru Nanak.

"All other legitimate paths to God"? Oddly enough, no one at this purported "Catholic" publication refuted or even clarified this heathen's statement. For some weird reason, the phrase "accepting compromises" keeps coming to mind.

By the way, much of this took place at Immaculate Conception Seminary. As we use to say in the Marine Corps, "garbage in, garbage out".

Disgusting. What is a Catholic in the pew to think when he sees the Church hierachy praying with pagans?
