“The greatest influence in writing was G. K. Chesterton who never used a useless word, who saw the value of a paradox, and avoided what was trite.”
Archbishop Fulton Sheen
The tragedy of the Jewish nation continues to unfold before our eyes. The Jews, as a nation, continue to oppose the Divine Plan for Order, and continue their desperate losing fight against Christ and His Church. Every attack on Christ involves the Jewish Nation in dire catastrophes. Sadly, they continue to remain blind to Christ and His Truth.
Let us review the ongoing international campaign against G. K. Chesterton, as presented in the "The Times of Israel".
"Alderman highlighted the manner in which Chesterton’s opposition to capitalism had led him to defend Edward I’s expulsion of the Jews from England in 1290. In his “Short History of England,” Chesterton described those who were driven from the country as the “capitalists of their age” and praised the monarch as a “tender father of his people....
In his book “The Jews of Britain 1656 to 2000,” historian Todd Edelman has also implicated Chesterton in the “stream of crude anti-Semitism”... The most virulent attacks in the Marconi affair,” Edelman writes, were launched by Chesterton, his brother Cecil, and the writer and politician Hilaire Belloc. Their “hostility to Jews was linked to their opposition to liberalism, their backward-looking Catholicism, and their nostalgia for a medieval Catholic Europe that they imagined was ordered, harmonious, and homogeneous.”
Notice that Alderman's and Edelman's attacks are particularly focused on the social Kingship of Christ. These Jewish historians are well aware of the implications of the Nation and the State being Catholic, Christian. Hence their attack on "Catholic Europe"; hence their attack on the great, far-seeing Monarch, King Edward 1st, who rightly defended the English Nation. It should be noted that it was under the vile William of Orange, that Jewish money lenders returned to England; then, after quickly establishing the Bank of England, they forced "union" with Scotland. Let us also take very careful note of Edelman's advocacy of liberalism, and opposition to "backward-looking Catholicism".
What does this reveal to us?
Things have not changed dear friends since two thousand years ago when the leaders of the Jewish nation crucified the Lord of Glory. God writes straight with crooked lines. Geoffrey Alderman and Todd Edelman have done Catholics a great favour. In their arrogance, they have revealed to us the position held by International Jewry vis-a-vis the the Catholic Church. They opposed Him then, and they oppose Him today. They are, and until their inevitable conversion (as St. Paul prophesied - himself a bigoted, Jewish racialist, until he was struck down on the road to Damascus), the leaders of the opposition to Christ the King and His Catholic Church.
Please pray for the conversion of the Jewish Nation, that they cease re-crucifying Him who took His Flesh from the Jewish Nation. May they come to see whom they have crucified as the Messiah; then, they shall weep openly and bitterly.
