I am posting a 1950 quote attributed to the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, one of America’s greatest teachers/preachers. Sheen was not a bigot. He was, rather, truly a saintly man of God who was also a scholar relating to Islam. He did however see that the depraved death cult in Islam enjoys support from another death cult – the deniers of the sanctity of human life at all stages – the “progressive.”
“At the present time, the hatred of the Islamic countries toward the West has become hatred against Christianity itself. Statesmen are now taking it into account that there is a grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return on a broad scale, and with it, the menace that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian, and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world power.
Muslim writers say, “When the locust swarms darken vast countries, they bear on their wings these Arabic words, “We are God’s host, each of us has 99 eggs, and if we had 100, we should lay waste to the world and all that is in it.”
Sadly, the evidence is now overwhelming – the United States of America is Islam’s “100th egg!” Are we not exporting jihadist’s with impunity, weapons, and money? Have we not thrown the whole Middle East into chaos? Are we not enriching our enemies with insane energy and fiscal policies? Hasn’t our education system been taken over at a level of governance and propaganda that cannot succeed? Haven’t we worked tirelessly to destroy our free enterprise system? Haven’t we ignored the principles of personal responsibility and e pluribus unum that made our nation and its health care system the greatest the world has ever seen? Haven’t we disarmed our military – even on its own bases where a single insane terrorist can wreak havoc on its personnel? Are we not ignoring the slaughter of Christians by Muslim terrorist like the 160 agriculture college students gunned down in their dorms in Nigeria?
Are we the once freest nation in the world now the100th Egg to “lay waste to the world and all that is in it?” Praise God, we will overcome –
Oh thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace; may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a Nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: In God is our trust.
And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
