DE EXCIDIO ET CONQUESTU BRITANNIAE
Upon the Ruin and Conquest of Britain
Gay Marriage and Britain’s loss of Grace
I always find it very moving to read the words of St Gildas from his work De Excidio et Conquestu Britanniae – On the Ruin and Conquest of Britain:
“WHATEVER in this my epistle I may write in my humble but well-meaning manner, rather by way of lamentation than for display, let no one suppose that it springs from contempt of others, or that I foolishly esteem myself as better than they; for, alas! the subject of my complaint is the general destruction of every thing that is good, and the general growth of evil throughout the land;- but that I would condole with my country in her distress and rejoice to see her revive therefrom.”
St Gildas wrote these words in AD 540 as the pagan barbarians pressed ever further into Britain. Using the imagery from the prophets of the Old Testament he saw the trials and tribulations of the Roman-British Catholics after the withdrawal of the Roman legions as God sending plagues and heathen invaders to punish His people for not obeying His laws. Perhaps then it is not surprising that, on the day a ‘Conservative’ Prime Minister announced a bill to legalise so called same-sex marriage, Britain entered into a triple dip recession.
21st Century Sodom and Gomorrah
It’s not only Britain that’s in trouble but the whole of Europe is in desperate straits, led by those who have sought to impose strident secular beliefs and materialism at the expense of their mortal souls. There is more to existence than shallow secularism; there is a deeper reality but it is being ignored. Instead the governments of the West are brainwashed by those in the media with vested interests who are pushing its peoples into ever more liberal and secular laws that are contrary to Natural Law. Why is it that suddenly all over Europe and America we have this push for so-called ‘Gay’ marriage? What is going on, are there forces behind the scenes? The alternative media will say it’s ‘Common Purpose’ or some other perverted cult, or even lizards in human form, or the Masons. However the alternative media are not really interested in whether Gay marriage comes about or not. But perhaps there is a kernel of truth in this (apart from the lizards, at least literally). I believe there is something behind all these hideous developments - and it is Satan.
The Barbarians at the Gates
Have no mistake: Satan wants the family, he knows that marriage between a man and a woman was instituted by God and he wants it undermined. The Family has been the very basis of a successful and stable society, a safe place to bring up children. A Gay marriage (like civil partnerships before it) will deprive children of either a mother or a father. Lucifer’s pulpit has been in the front room for decades now, and also in children’s bedrooms for many years and what have we got? A dysfunctional society that doesn’t know right from wrong.
The TV and the Great Deceiver
For almost ten years now, CUT has tried to point out the relationship between the TV (particularly as provided by the BBC and RTI) and the destruction of moral values. We have argued that there is a clear relationship between the TV and abortion, the TV and strident homosexual progress, the TV and the sexualisation of society and children, the TV and violence, bad manners and a general disrespect of others, the TV and anti-Catholic rhetoric. But perhaps the most important point is this: if you watch the TV and more importantly pay the licence fee you are part of the problem. Would you make donations to Stonewall or the IPPF’s advertising fund? No? Well, if you fund the BBC it is as good as doing just this. The BBC are extremely good at brainwashing people into accepting the aforesaid perversions whilst saying they are merely debating social issues, when in fact they are intervening and leading the processes of moral decay.
Archbishop of Southwark the Most Rev Peter Smith has asked Catholics to ‘mobilise’ in opposition to same-sex marriage so we will do our bit; write again to your MP or send the ‘Speak Out for Marriage’ cards to him or her. Send a note of support to Archbishop Smith. There will be many dissidents who will be sending him contrary advice.
We ask all Prayer Crusaders to pray every day the Crusader Prayer, for marriage and that the same-sex marriage proposal will be defeated, from now until the debate and vote in Parliament on February 5.
O glorious St...(your intercessor saint)... pray for us
And for those in the public sphere
Especially those influenced by Satan’s lies
May the Lord touch their hearts bring them to repent
And walk upon the path of truth and temperance
O Subject of the heavenly realm pray also for all led astray
Pray especially for marriage and that the same-sex marriage proposal will be defeated
And pray for me, a sinner.
Prayer to St Michael the Archangel
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us
