News Bytes: The Rotten Fruits of the Council -- Will the Church Become a Mosque?

France:  The Rotten Fruits of the Council -- Will the Church become a Mosque? -- Homosexual Bullying Bears Fruit -- Went off Quickly Without a Hitch -- Now Come the Clones

France.  In 1961 -- a year before the start of the Pastoral Council -- 35% of the French went to the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite every Sunday.  Fifty years later, after the start of the Second Vatican Council only 6% of the French -- at least once a month -- attend the New Eucharistic Celebration.  This is from a study of the public opinion researcher 'Ifop'.  In 1961 over 90% of Frenchmen were Catholic.  Now about 80% are baptized.  In all, about 30% of those under 35 are approximately 30% heathen.

Will the Church Become a Mosque?

France.  One Church in the 27,000 population city of Vierzon in central France may become a Mosque.  In the city there are six churches and 300 practicing Catholics.  That's why the church, St. Eloi, built in 1955 will be sold.  The buyer shows itself to be the "Union of Moroccans".  It will transform the church into a Mosque.  The Diocese of Bourges explained that it is still not decided to whom the will be sold off for peanuts.

Homosexual Intimidation Bears Fruit

Austria.  On Saturday the Salzburg Auxiliary Bishop Andreas Laun celebrates his 70th birthday.  On his jubilee, a homosexual website congratulated him.  Msgr. Laun has refrained from commenting on the disorder.  Recently he even expressed himself in friendly terms to homosexuals and spoke of a "loving interaction" with them.

Trial Went off Quickly Without a Hitch

Vatican.  Was there secret fixing involved with the Pope-traitor Paolo Gabrielle?  This question came from the anti-Church German weekly 'Zeit'.  It is incidental that the actors of State Attorney and defense announced the judgment:  "There will possibly be a verdict before the trial's end."  Gabriele's attorney has praised the judgment as balanced.  Also, there is still the big question if there is another suspect besides Gabriele.  The Journalist Marco Ansaldo from the Italian news 'Republica' described the trial as a "fixed trial".

Now comes the Clone

Sweden.  In this year there are two stem cell researchers, the Japanese Shinya Yamanaka and the Brit John Gurdon, who will win the Nobel Prize for Medicine.  They are to receive the dubious honor for the back development of cells of a grown person from embryonic stem cells.  For that it will no longer be necessary to grow and kill more children, in order to experiment with their cells.  Archbishop Anton Losinger of Augsburg warned 'Munich Kirchenradio', that this may lead to the technique of making identical clones.

Violence Against Pro-Lifers in Salzburg

At a Pro-Life demonstration of "Youth For Life" in Salzburg an activist was punched out by a  Pro-Abortion fanatic and had to spend the night in the hospital.

Salzburg ( At a peaceful demonstration by the Austrian life defense group "Youth for Life" this last Saturday in Salzburg a life defender was punched.  The group broadcast this information recently.

The event, at which  Salzburg's Auxiliary Bishop Andreas Laun took part, was disturbed by a counter-demonstration.  This demonstration did not shrink from obscene and unworthy provocations like "If Mary had aborted, we would have been spared."  After the end of the chain of light, as the life defenders had left Mass at the Mullner Parish church, five members of the Youth For Life were occupied with removing torches and banners and were confronted by the pro-abortion people and assaulted.  A young life defender suffered a concussion from a punch and had to spend the night in the hospital.

A Ridiculed Bishop Strikes Back: More Fallout From "Loveparade"

A well known Austrian Auxiliary bishop is not prepared to take the unjustifiable pummeling of the media bosses: Loveparade is not a "harmless celebration" -- If God "punishes", He does this with the intention to bring men around, God punishes out of love.

[, Salzburg] This Friday the Auxiliary Bishop Andreas Laun of Salzburg wrote a careful article about the Massacre-Loveparade in Duisburg.

The text appeared in the neo-Conservative Linz commercial website ''.

The in the meantime suspended, so-called Loveparade was the biggest alcohol, drug and sex event of Western Europe.

Msgr Laun stated from the start, that no one is in the position, to directly order God's punishment for a sin.

There is not a single person who can condemn the dead and point to that as God's punishment.

Quite independently from the sympathy with the victims the Bishop wrote about the "repellent image" of the horrific event.

God is not and Indifferent God

The Auxiliary Bishop emphasized the truism that God punishes sins -- and really "with the intention to bring people to repentance, God punishes out of love!"

"Can one believe in a punishing God? Contradiction: <>

Would not a God without this indifference be an <>, and therefore unrighteous God -- not really the God, in whom we believe?"

The Auxiliary Bishop described Hell not as the punishment of God, rather as the self-alienation of the sinner from eternal Holiness.

The Media Bosses Damn

The original short text of the article will bring the Auxiliary Bishop to the gallows:

"Loveparade is not a 'harmless celebration' -- if God 'punished', he did this with the intention, to bring people to penance -- God punishes out of love!"

This was seized upon by the Austrian News Agency 'APA' and even mentioned in the evening news of 'Austrian Television'.

The German regional daily 'Hamburger Morgenpost' ridiculed the Auxiliary Bishop with the paltry title: "Bishop Ridicules Victims of Loveparade".

The Bishop Strikes Back

Yesterday evening Msgr Laun published a second article on the theme for ''.

He criticized the "scandal monger journalism" for his description.

His text asks "for a fair and precise reader not to be misled."

Msgr Laun is "disappointed", that the public dialogue will not take place: "why, my ladies and gentlemen, could and would you not believe me, what I describe precisely?"

The Auxiliary Bishop renewed with exclamation points:

"I am also not convinced, that we men do not have the right, to pass over other men a just judgement, that belongs only to God!"

Msgr Laun underscored that he may not judge and has not done it. Really he will be condemned -- for the claims, that he is supposed to have expressed.

Thereby he does not believe his "dear critics", "that you really believe, that I think, what you have ascribed to me."

The Auxiliary Bishop then recalls, that every religion believes in a God, "who is also a judge of people."

In conclusion he emphasizes again, that he has not assumed this office which is God's alone.
