Pro-Abortion Protest in Argentina turns violent

These men showed amazing restraint.

Quote from the parish priest

He lamented the damage done to the cathedral and concluded that “if they don’t respect life, we can’t expect them to respect the buildings.”

That says it all.

Every year it happens and every year the Argentinian Government and Police support these criminal acts of violence and hatred against Christians. Every year the secular media ignores it because it is Christians who are being persecuted. I saw some other stories where these persons had broken the law in a number of other countries without any attempt of law enforcement agencies taking action. Strangely enough they don’t appear to want to carry out the same protests outside mosques, especially in places like Pakistan, Iraq, Egypt or Korea.

I do feel sorry for them as they have no respect or dignity for themselves or others. They must have such sad and empty lives.

Some of the same tactics have been used in Vienna. Disgusting.

Though the patience and “turn the other cheek” commitment of the pro-lifers is – Inspirational.

… and in Melbourne, Australia

In this demonstration I saw socialists and feminists betray almost every principle they profess to hold.

I saw them treat women with contempt and fellow citizens with force. I saw them deny others their right to free movement and speech. I saw them counter reason with abuse.

The Left has been long presented by schools, universities and media outlets, especially the ABC, as people who are “progressive” and “compassionate”.

The Left I saw on Saturday is instead the natural home of the totalitarian and the bully. And that’s without considering that today’s socialists and feminists also endorse the killing of healthy unborn infants just weeks before birth.

None of this is new, of course. Most of the worst modern tyrannies, from the French Revolution to the Cambodian genocide, were led by the Left. The greatest attacks on our free speech have come from Labor, a party of so-called idealists.

But as British philosopher Bertrand Russell famously noted: “Much that passes as idealism is disguised hatred or disguised love of power.”

We saw that in Melbourne on Saturday. They call themselves progressives. They are instead barbarians, so sure of their goodness they feel licensed to do evil.

The Left seems intent on showing its totalitarian face with actions like this.

They attack Catholics and then say that they love Pope Francis. It makes no sense. Don’t they know that Pope Francis is at the top of the hierarchy of bishops and that all the ones they are attacking are subordinate to the Pope? They are attacking us little ones who have nothing to do with why the Catholic Church teaches what she does.
