White Racism? – II

White Racism? – II posted in Eleison Comments on September 14, 2019

Following on these “Comments” of last week, one reader remarked that the title should rather have been “Anti-white racism.” Of course he is right in the sense that the antagonism is going today much more from non-whites towards whites than from whites towards non-whites, but what matters for all of us is to allay the antagonism, going in whatever racial direction, by understanding what is behind it. Ultimately it is the liberals presently running the world who want to kick Almighty God out of His Creation so that they can take His place. As good “liberals,” they want above all liberty from God. What use is freedom from anything or anybody else, if they are not free from God and His Ten Commandments?

Now when God took flesh, the religion which His Son instituted spread Christendom worldwide, where in St Paul’s words, as many as are baptised into Christ have put on Christ, so that “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Gal. III, 27–29; Col. III, 11). This doctrine means that where Christianity prevails, antagonisms such as “anti-semitism,” “racism” and “feminism” all tend to be dissolved, because they are all drowned in baptism in Christ. But what if men reject Christ? Will not all antagonisms between Jew and non-Jew, between non-white and white, between male and female, re-surface?

They will, and they will be worse after Christendom than they were before, because Christianity gave men to know God as they had not known Him before, and also to know the absolute equality of all men before God, an equality belonging to eternity, which dwarfs the multiple inequalities between men in this short life on earth. Before Christendom, men naturally accepted these inequalities as being part of life against which it was foolish to protest – the inequalities were simply there. Under Christendom mankind learned to be consoled for the inequalities, still there, by the supreme equality of eternity. But after Christendom, the Christian faith, Christ, heaven and eternity are all gone, so that the inequalities of this life, which have not gone away, are more keenly felt than ever.

For indeed the liberals who are doing their best to put an end to Christendom have nevertheless carried over from it a sense, for instance, of its supreme equality of all men, even if they have gotten rid of the God upon whom that equality was founded. Therefore an equality of eternity must now be jammed into seventy years and ten. Like trying to cram a quart of liquid into a pint jar. It will not go. Then they will force it to go. And here is why liberals are always fighting reality. They are post-Christians attempting to cram into one short life ideals of Christ which have dimensions of eternity. They miss Christianity but do not want Christ, so with might and main they strive to recreate Christianity without Christ, which is an enterprise doomed to failure. But will they return to Christ? Never! “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!”

Thus Christian liberty from sin, for Heaven, must be turned into liberty from any earthly oppression, real or imagined, liberty for Revolution: Christian equality before God, for eternity, must be turned into the levelling down of all real superiorities on earth, which will not go away, however hard the liberals try; and finally f raternity in Christ, the true brotherhood of all men as children of the one true God, must be replaced by the artificial association of all men in institutions like the United Nations, which can only fail.

In conclusion, the white race received from God special gifts, natural and supernatural, to bring Christ and His Church to all mankind. Whenever they did this, all mankind benefited and men made their way to Heaven all over the world, with no resentment and much gratitude towards the race which was opening their way to Heaven. But when this race ceased to serve that function, then the rest of mankind felt instinctively betrayed, and “racism” raged, as never before. Whites, if you do not like anti-white racism, then pick up the Rosary, 15 Mysteries a day.

Kyrie eleison.

White Racism? – I

White Racism? – I posted in Eleison Comments on September 7, 2019

The race of white men, as they are called, scattered all over the face of the earth but especially concentrated in Europe, is presently suffering contempt and persecution all over the face of the earth. And whose fault is that? It is primarily the fault of the whites, or Europeans, themselves.

“Racism” as it is called, or antagonism between the various human races, is certainly a human problem, arousing all kinds of human passions, and so like all truly human problems which are not just material or mechanical problems, it has necessarily a religious dimension. Today the very last direction in which men will turn to solve a human problem is towards God, and yet God will be the true solution. But since men will not turn to God, then the problems remain basically insoluble, and today’s world is in ever increasing chaos. Then how does turning towards God solve today’s problem of “racism”?

It is God and God alone who creates the soul of every single man that ever lived, and He creates them with a great variety, to make up what He means to be the symphony of mankind. Now individuals He creates with immensely differing natural gifts, as every parent must recognise when they observe how completely different are the gifts and temperament and character of their own children – no two are ever alike. And did the parents themselves create that variety? Obviously not. The only natural decision that the parents had was to have a child (to abort this or that child in the womb is a highly unnatural decision). God did the rest. Now the variety coming from God clearly includes inequality. For instance parents are bound to recognise the absolute inequality of gifts among their own children – some can be much more gifted than others. Parents may not have wanted this inequality, but could they have done anything about it? Obviously not. It is God who decides – naturally – even the sex of their children.

Nor is this inequality of gifts unjust, because the really privileged children are those who will get to Heaven by supernatural gifts, which require the child himself to cooperate with God’s grace, and that cooperation has nothing necessarily to do with natural gifts. Hell, somebody has said, is full of talents, whereas Heaven is full of virtues. Moreover a child’s gifts from God obviously correspond to whatever part God means him to play in the symphony of mankind. The child should do what is he gifted for.

Now as with individuals, so with families, towns, provinces, nations and races. Families are different from one another, and unequal. Towns, provinces, nations and races are all different and unequal, with in each case a varying mixture of nature by God and nurture by men. Insofar as they are developed by men, God’s intention in allowing for this nurture is that with their varying gifts, they should all exercise charity and look after one another. For example, let this town help its flooded neighbour, let this province provide the artists, let this nation lead the world, let this race serve the Church. Now is it not clear from many centuries of history that the white race has had, not exclusive, but special natural and supernatural gifts from God to serve Him, and to extend His Church all over the world? Nor is this unjust, because what use the whites make of these gifts depends upon themselves. They have free-will to use or misuse their gifts, but in any case they do have a mission from God. If they make the right use of these gifts, they will benefit the whole world. If they misuse these gifts, God will specially punish them.

And what use are the whites making today of their God-given gifts? For many hundreds of years have they not been slowly but steadily turning away from Him? And are they not now proud of their atheism? Is it then surprising if God makes use of all other races, nations, etc., to punish the whites by their being scorned and persecuted by the rest of mankind? In God’s view, have not apostate men betrayed the women they are meant to lead (to Heaven); have not apostate whites betrayed all other races; have not apostate Gentiles finally betrayed the Jews by Vatican II? Then who should still be surprised by the raging of “feminism,” “racism” and “anti-semitism”?
