Overseer of Decline

Some aspects of the 21st Century are so insane, so horribly disordered, that it is difficult to get out the words to comment on them. Like, for instance, this story, from Oliver Lane of Breitbart:

"The Bishop of Stockholm has proposed a church in her diocese remove all signs of the cross and put down markings showing the direction to Mecca for the benefit of Muslim worshippers.
Eva Brunne, who was made the world’s first openly lesbian bishop by the church of Sweden in 2009, and has a young son with her wife and fellow lesbian priest Gunilla Linden, made the suggestion to make those of other faiths more welcome."
A million retorts clog my throat, vying desperately with each other to get out. One piously points out,
"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."(1 Corinthians 1:18)
One less reverent wonders if this so-called "Church of Sweden" is a Christian Church at all, or merely a means for smug Scandinavian liberals to sanctify their socialism? A third voice genuinely wonders how many of the Biblical requirements for the office of bishop this woman meets? I mean, she by sex fails the easy one. And a whole cacophony behind these merely wail and curse in rage at what has become of a once great civilization.
And it only gets worse:
"Calling Muslim guests to the church “angels“, the Bishop later took to her official blog to explain that removing Christian symbols from the church and preparing the building for Muslim prayer doesn’t make a priest any less a defender of the faith. Rather, to do any less would make one “stingy towards people of other faiths”."
Angel, from the Greek "ἄγγελος", properly means only messenger. And indeed, the Muslim invaders of the West have bourne the most important of messages as to how far we've rotted from the men who routed the Turks at the Gates of Vienna, or the seas of Lepanto, the anniversary of which victory we had the chance to celebrate not too long past. They are indeed messengers of God, bearing the Divine message of Matthew 7:6,
"Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces."
Sweden, of course, is being so torn as we speak.

"The bishop insisted this wasn’t an issue, after all airports and hospitals already had multi-faith prayer rooms, and converting the dockyard church would only bring it up to speed."
How a Church (I may be being generous with the capitalization here) appoints someone who views it not as the living body, hands, and voice of Jesus, the Living God, but as a mere instrumentality, a simple incident of the landscape, like an airport or a hospital, is beyond belief. The Churches are in the hands of those who hate them!

Man, European, Christian, you are being thrown out of the societies and institutions your fathers built. In your indolence and apathy, everything sacred is blasphemed, everything valuable debased, and everything loved, raped before your eyes. Now is the time to fight back! Otherwise the likes of this "bishop" will oversee our final decline.
