"...a confederacy of evil..."

The Archbishop of Madrid has filed a complaint with the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) after a group of 50 young people stormed the chapel of the Somosaguas university campus to protest against the Catholic Church.

According to a statement of the Archbishopric of Madrid, a group of 50 young people, mostly women, broke up on 10th March 2011 in the afternoon in the chapel of the Somosaguas Campus of the University Complutense of Madrid shouting slogans against the Church, the Pope and the Christian faith through a megaphone.

In its statement, the Archbishopric of Madrid informs that the group surrounded the altar in the chapel and read texts and phrases that, they said, were from Christian authors speaking about women. Then they read a Manifesto which included declarations against the Church and its teachings. Some of the women removed their clothes from the waist up and chanted slogans against the Church.

Student protestors, numbering around 70, shouted insults against the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI and priests in general.  Two of the young women who stood on the altar are said to have boasted about their homosexual tendencies.*

This attack on the chapel which lasted between 15 and 20 minutes was photographed and filmed by people who accompanied the group, LaVozLibre reports. Moreover, the group left their posters in the chapel.

The Archbishopric of Madrid and Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) in a statement condemned the events. The Archbishopric points out that "these actions are an assault on freedom of religion and a desecration of a sacred place, which involve sanctions within canon law if those committing them are baptized."  See here.

It was Cardinal Newman who predicted the desolation of our own time writing, "Surely there is at this day a confederacy of evil, marshalling its hosts from all parts of the world, organizing itself, taking its measures, enclosing the Church of Christ in a net, and preparing the way for a general apostasy from it...this evil apostasy and all its tokens and instruments are of the Evil One and savour of death."

Incidents such as the one described above in Spain are becoming ever more common.  Even in the United States with the Rainbow Sash movement.  The Fathers of the Church warned so long ago that in the last days, as the end draws near, the Church founded by Christ will be subjected to a fiercer and more diabolical persecution than any she has previously suffered through.

It was Fr. Vincent Miceli, S.J., who said that, "The West has lost its transcendent motive for 'fighting the good fight,' for finishing an honourable course.  Not having kept the faith, it is now morally paralyzed, incapable of projecting a cogent politics of peace with dignity.  Its politics falter; events are out of control; things fall apart.  With the escalation of violence, crime, confusion, wars and rumors of wars emanating from religious apostasy and political disengagement, the stage is being set for the Coming of Antichrist.."

And when the Man of Sin does arrive?  Do you suppose Christian that he will permit you to worship Jesus?  Do you suppose that he will tolerate the Holy Mass?  No.  He will suppress the Mass for three and a half years.  And he will set up his throne within the temple of God and demand that worship which belongs to God alone.

What would happen if Christians disrupted a gathering of GLBT activists shouting through bullhorns, "We're Christians and we're here, get over it you Christianophobes"?
