In the Jesuit progressive rag known as "America", we read an article - on the heels of the Orlando shootings - entitled "Shall We Fast In Ramadan?". Of course it's written by a Jesuit. In a saner time, the majority of Catholics would have responded to that question along the lines of "HELL, NO!!" Leaving aside (for the moment) the tenets of Islam that call for butchery, rape of women, jihad, etc, we as Catholics cannot affirm in the slightest one single act of idol worship. And yes, "allah" is a false idol, if not an actual demon.
Yesterday Attorney General Loretta Lynch let loose with the preposterous claim that the motive of Omar Mateen "may never be known". She preferred to use this massacre to shill for "gun control". She also announced that when transcripts of Mateen's conversations are released, they will be scrubbed of any references to his Islamic mindsets. Got that? She claims that Mateen's reasons "may never be known" while at the same time obfuscating all evidence that make his jihadic motivations obvious to any but the most self-deluded progressive (such as the writers and staff of America).
This isn't the first time she's done damage-control for Muslims. Last December she hinted that the Justice Department could investigate speech "hostile towards Muslims". After that went viral on the internet, she had to do some damage-control for herself and attempted to back-pedal.
It really is disappointing to watch Catholic publications fall lock-step behind the most godless administration in the history of the United States of America. Sadly it's not surprising.
