Nous découvrons (…) qu’il nous faut choisir notre camp; que nous nous armons contre le mal manifeste sans prendre position pour le mal sournois. Le chrétien se sent pris en tenaille entre deux idéologies. D’un côté, l’idéologie qui caricature Dieu au mépris de l’homme. De l’autre, l’idéologie qui manipule l’homme au mépris de Dieu. D’un côté, des adversaires déclarés et reconnus: les terroristes de la bombe, vengeurs du prophète. De l’autre côté, des adversaires non déclarés mais bien connus: les terroristes de la pensée, prescripteurs de la laïcité, adorateurs de la République. Dans quel camp se situer comme chrétien? Nous ne voulons pas être pris en otage par des islamistes. Mais nous ne souhaitons pas être pris en otage par des bienpensants. L’idéologie islamique vient de faire 17 victimes en France. Mais l’idéologie de la bienpensance fait chaque année 200,000 victimes dans le sein de leur mère. L’IVG devenue droit fondamental est une arme de destruction massive. Luc Marie Daniel Ravel, C.R.S.V., Diocèse aux Armées Françaises.

We find ourselves having to choose which side to be on; we find ourselves arming against manifest evil without taking a position against the [more] devious kind. The Christian senses that he is caught in a pincer between two ideologies: on the one hand, one that makes a caricature of God which ends up despising man; on the other hand, the manipulation of man which ends up despising God. On the one side, there are the declared and identified adversaries: the terrorists of the bomb, the vindicators of the prophet; on the other side, there are the undeclared but well-known adversaries: the terrorists of thought, promoters of secularism and idolaters of the Republic.  In which camp are Christians to be placed? We don’t want to be taken hostage by the Muslims. But we don’t even want to be taken hostage by the conformists either. The Islamic ideology has murdered 17 victims in France. But the ideology of the conformist has 200,000 victims each year in the wombs of their mothers. Abortion intended as a fundamental “right” is a weapon of mass-destruction. Luc Marie Daniel Ravel, C.R.S.V., Diocese of the French Armed Forces.
