Thousands of troops, backed by tanks and metal barricades, patrolled the western city of Urumqi on Saturday after five people died in protests over a series of bizarre needle attacks that China's police chief has blamed on Muslim separatists (emphasis added)...More>>So, why does a Chinese police chief see a fact so clearly and state it so forthrightly when there is the most timid shuffling of feet and averting of glances and talk of "Asian youth" regarding Scimitar crowd contagion, threats to Israel, and routine violence across Europe and elsewhere?
Truth - Gr. aletheia, to stop forgetting - is something that is being plowed under in the West by an avalanche of euphemisms, shoddy incomplete thinking, and, of course, the mimetic mayhem of cultural meltdown.
As a result, the best remnants of Christendom are being silenced - clear vision and erudite truth-telling most of all. The record is clear: we have in office the most pro-choice, pro-abortion president in history (Just check his voting record; don't listen to his themes, check the structure of his actions) who wants to reform "health care" while invoking compassion and "moral" duty. Seemingly, only those still in touch with Catholic truth see this disconnect.
Too, his preferential treatment toward the Scimitar, including a decidedly selective and abridged historical understanding of its cultural contributions, shows clearly a silencing of truth as long-understood in the Judeo-Christian world.
Perhaps, just perhaps, with the slow killing of truth in the West we are arriving at what Sisci sees as a defining moment for Catholic truth … in China.
