Those who repeat the unexamined prejudices of Bill Clinton and his fellows consider themselves the elite enlightened of humanity [including now - Feb. 5, 2015 - Barack Obama]. They want to shift responsibility for the current horrors of terrorism to the West and to the Church.
The excellent work debunking this revisionist view of history by Dr. Jonathan Riley-Smith of Oxford is summarized in the following article by Dr. Thomas F. Madden which can be read in its entirety at the focusequip blog.
How does a man love according to divine precept his neighbor as himself when, knowing that his Christian brothers in faith and in name are held by the perfidious Muslims in strict confinement and weighed down by the yoke of heaviest servitude, he does not devote himself to the task of freeing them?… Is it by chance that you do not know that many thousands of Christians are bound in slavery and imprisoned by the Muslims, tortured with innumerable torments?
Consider most dear sons, consider carefully that if any temporal king was thrown out of his domain and perhaps captured, would he not, when he was restored to his pristine liberty and the time had come for dispensing justice look on his vassals as unfaithful and traitors… unless they had committed not only their property but also their persons to the task of freeing him?… And similarly will not Jesus Christ, the king of kings and lord of lords, whose servant you cannot deny being, who joined your soul to your body, who redeemed you with the Precious Blood… condemn you for the vice of ingratitude and the crime of infidelity if you neglect to help Him?
Again I say, consider the Almighty's goodness and pay heed to His plans of mercy. He puts Himself under obligation to you, or rather feigns to do so, that He can help you to satisfy your obligations toward Himself… I call blessed the generation that can seize an opportunity of such rich indulgence as this.
Ask anyone who knows the Sacred Scriptures what he finds foretold of the Jews in the Psalm. "Not for their destruction do I pray," it says. The Jews are for us the living words of Scripture, for they remind us always of what our Lord suffered… Under Christian princes they endure a hard captivity, but "they only wait for the time of their deliverance."
