Ireland has gone fascist..."outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist..."



With the staged and carefully manipulated referendum yesterday in Ireland, one can conclude that that sad country, once Catholic, has now become a fascist State. With the imposition of  homosexual "marriage", the State has by an act of the will to power suppressed all spiritual values opposed to Caesar. Indeed, the BBC openly claims that opposition to homosexual "marriage" is opposed to "gay rights". This is pure fascism. 


Consider the following from Mussolini (extract from The Doctrine of Fascism, 1932):

The Fascist State, the highest and most powerful form of personality, is a force, but a spiritual force, which takes over all the forms of the moral and intellectual life of man. . . . It is the form, the inner standard and the discipline of the whole person; it saturates the will as well as the intelligence... the Fascist conception of the State is all embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value. Thus understood, Fascism, is totalitarian, and the Fascist State - a synthesis and a unit inclusive of all values - interprets, develops, and potentates the whole life of a people...

Fascism, in short, is not only the giver of laws and the founder of institutions, but the educator and promoter of spiritual life. It wants to remake, not the forms of human life, but its content, man, character, faith. And to this end it requires discipline and authority that can enter into the spirits of men and there govern unopposed.... if liberalism spells individualism, Fascism spells government....the Fascist State is a will to power and to government.

"Ireland has gone fascist" is a misnomer at best just as the notion that "Ireland is Catholic" is. As Catholics we believe in the primacy of persons, not states, organizations, institutions or conglomerations of any sort. Persons as in "three persons in one God". Abraham at least had the sense to challenge God before Sodom and Gomorrah about whether He would condemn the cities if there were 10 righteous persons within. Perhaps you need to ask whether there are 10 righteous persons within Ireland before you condemn the country to the flames. Abraham would.

Fascism is the surrender of one's personhood and identity to the state. People do it because they prefer the security of a god they can see to the reality of one they cannot see. We stand before God to be judged as persons and your loyalty to the state, whether Catholic or fascist, will not avail you one whit. You will be asked what you did for the hungry, the thirsty, the outcast, the imprisoned in your midst.

You will notice that I did say the "State" has gone fascist; not the Nation.

So if I do all these things, and support or live in a homosexual relationship I will go to heaven?
