    Sorry I missed your anniversary barn. Did anyone else see the major fail on Wheel of Fortune? Maybe it’s just me, but I look at this as an indictment of our education system, although I’ve never been faced with winning $1M on national TV.

    Guns of the Swiss Guard. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

      The Swiss Guard is bad-ass. This article was just about their weapons– they’re also all very skilled in hand to hand combat, and train intensly every day to keep in top form. It’s why they can wear those costumes with a straight face. Because they know they can mess you up, real bad, if needed. . .

    I, myself will say that the Catholic Church is not perfect (Who, or what is?) but, I believe most sensible Christians would CARE if the Muslims invaded the Vatican. Unfortunately, I believe that the Muslims, in a way, have already gotten a foot through the Vatican’s door. The Muslims, as a whole, get a pass from the CC. The CC could be a lot harder on the Muslims for the persecution of the Christians in this world of ours today. JMHO.

    “I remember a few years ago spending time with an Evangelical friend of mine. Within our conversation, somehow, the subject of the Crusades came up. Of course, I defended the Crusades, explaining that they were fighting off Islamic invaders in the Middle East. He, on the other hand, vehemently condemned the Crusaders as evil and barbarous people. I asked him, ‘Who would you rather win, the Muslims or the Crusaders?’ He said, with a tone of vitriol, ‘It doesnโ€™t matter, they are both the same! I would not care at all if the Muslims invaded the Vatican, the Catholics are just as evil.’

    This is the predicament that we are in. While the Vatican is hated as the Harlot of Babylon, the Muslims are currently conspiring to take over and destroy Rome. And many would not have a problem with this.

    The Muslims will invade Rome in the near future. Why would they try such a seemingly useless endeavor? Because when Muhammad founded his cult, there were two cities that he aspired for the Muslims to conquer: Rome and Constantinople.

    The desire to invade Rome is still throbbing like a beating heart; it is alive and remains vibrant like a torrent within the very soul of the Muslim world. Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most influential Sunni scholar today, made the prediction in 2002 that the Muslims will soon rise and invade Rome, making references to the declaration of Muhammad himself…”

    “…Many of the Iraqi Christians have already fled Iraq for other countries. A great number of them, who are very poor, flee to Jordan where they live in refugee camps. But in these camps Christian Iraqi girls are sexually tormented and abused.

    A nine year old Iraqi Christian girl in Jordan was captured by Muslims who brutally raped her for 19 days. After 19 days of sexual torture, she was rescued by Sister Hatune Dogan, an Eastern Orthodox nun, who payed 33,000 US dollars to ransom the tormented girl…”
