“A God of Death, a Moloch”

The video below is a brief excerpt from a eulogy given by the Archbishop of Paris at the funeral of Father Jacques Hamel, the priest who was slaughtered by a mujahid in a church near Rouen. The sentiments expressed in this clip make a refreshing change from the pabulum we’ve been hearing since last Tuesday from various grandees in the Catholic Church.

Many thanks to M and Ava Lon for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:


24:03   Those who wrap themselves in the trappings of religion to mask their deadly project,
24:14   those who want to announce to us a God of death,
24:19   a Moloch that would rejoice at the death of a man
24:25   and promise paradise to those who kill while invoking him:
24:32   these cannot expect humanity to yield to their delusion.
24:44   The hope that God wrote in human heart has a name: LIFE.
24:50   It has a face, the face of Christ,
24:58   giving his life in sacrifice
25:02   so that men may have life in abundance.

  1. It is good that His Eminence has so sharply contrasted the cult of death with the hope and life that are to be found in Christ. I do hope that was all he was saying–and he wasn’t prior to the clip saying something about the terrorists’ not having the right conception of Islam. Somehow, I think he wasn’t. It would appear that the aggressive secularism of the French has given rise to a Church that is not afraid to appear rebellious, proving yet again that faith thrives under persecution, however mild.

    • “faith thrives under persecution” – especially the state variety. That’s one reason for the phenomenal growth of “house churches” in China. They are suppressed while the state-sponsored version of Christianity is promoted as a “safe space” where the authorities can keep an eye on you.

      I don’t think Russia has a similar phenomenon. It’s hard to match the splendor of the Russian Orthodox liturgy whereas Chinese Christians are closer to the early historical church.

      In the former USSR, once the Wall went down and Russia opened up/withdrew from its far abroad, the state and church renewed its old state/citizen symbiosis. I’m hoping they can jump start a true and robust middle class so that the Marxist virus will die, but it’s never been done so…besides, Marx and Lenin thought that Communism would take hold in advanced industrial countries, England being the primary test. It wasn’t meant to happen in that strange tertium quid which enveloped Russia so completely.

  2. I got the distinct impression in that video clip that the Cardinal was calling Allah “A god of death” and even linking Allah to Molech the Ammonite god who required child sacrifices. Not the usual interfaith unity stuff we’ve come to expect from the church leadership.

  3. Yes. Yes. Yes.

    Just hope the part of the eulogy we don’t see has no contradictions or appeasements.

  4. Well expressed by the Arch-Bishop of Paris.

    islam is organized along four dichotomies: muslim-non-muslim, man-woman, master-slave, death-life. It harbours hardly any religiously meaningful content, let alone spirituality.

  5. Ought to be a little ‘g’ … for the only place Satan is regarded as a deity worthy of worship is in the minds of a) human beings who are running Islamic software, or b) out and out Satanists.

    The ‘leftists’ who have their own red software running in their minds claim not to believe in that entity … although Saul Alinsky did dedicate his book to it, so who knows what actually goes on in their poisoned little brains.

  6. From the archives …

    US is ‘battling Satan’ says general

    US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has declined to criticise a senior army officer who told audiences the war on terrorism is a battle with Satan.

    Evangelical Christian Lieutenant-General William G Boykin was also quoted as saying a Muslim warlord in Somalia had an “idol” for a God.


  7. I just hope that the deluded communist Argentinian Pope was watching!

    Will he take note, of course not, just like the rest of his NWO buddies he has an agenda all of his own.

    • I know this subject has had much coverage here and elsewhere, but I’m not convinced the new Pope is part of the NWO; he may just be naive (not that this affects the likely outcome of his “dhimmitude”.

  8. On the sideline:
    It`s a good thing that you use the islamic term Mujahid (literally a person that is waging Jihad).

    And not a western neologism like “Jihadist”, that is only good for creating the false Impression, that those killers didnt act in accordance with Islam.
    Islam has its own terminology, and for a reason.

    Btw. Jihad doesn`t mean a peacefull struggle or effort in faith, like often claimed.
    Because that would be Idjtihad.

  9. No life in Islam. It’s all about dishonesty, death and domination, maiming, destruction, torture, rape, prostitution, persecution, slavery, lying, cheating, stealing, double talk, delusion, confusion, exclusion, paedophelia, warped non-growth. A Godless, soulless ideology of the lowest of the low. The whole disease should have been wiped off the face of the earth ages ago. The Spanish got started but didn’t finish it. Muslims are very very bad people who harbor a wish for a cruel demise to even nature itself. They are still making some headway with their Islamophobia disease model. What are we thinking? Anyway that’s my take on these real untouchables – for now.

    • Including of course everything Mr Churchill had to say about these creepy crawling creatures. He was being too kind.

    • The Byzantines had the best opportunities to smother this ideology in the womb, and they repeatedly blew them.

  10. And by the way maybe it’s time for the truly great powers to get together again and decide how to chop this lot up again. A kind of climate control thing.

  11. Pope Benedict quoting a 14th-century dialogue between Byzantine emperor, Manuel II Paleologus, and a Persian Scholar (about the concept of violence in Islam).

    “Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”

    He was so right!

  12. Surely there comes a time when that feeling part of our bring says take off the velvet gloves and start dealing with this scourge. No Muslims need apply. Yeah yeah I know…

  13. A refreshingly realistic attitude from Archbishop. Bravo. More of this everyday.
