And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
– Matthew 13: 3-9
When you want to stop a plague from spreading, you must destroy the breeding ground for the plague. The devil, who hates humanity and the God who took flesh and dwelt among us in order to redeem humanity, looked on the spread of Christianity throughout Europe as a plague. He could not, in an instant, destroy such a widespread plague, but he could, over time, gradually destroy the breeding ground for the Christian faith, which was, is, and always shall be the human heart. With an unrelenting, all-consuming hatred, the devil set himself the task of severing the Europeans’ heart to heart connection to the Savior by redirecting their vision from the “eyes of the heart,” the organ of sight, to the “jewels of the head,” the source of intellectual pride and all of the satanic evils that stem from that pride.
Satan’s long term plan, to destroy the European people’s faith in Christ by destroying their hearts, has succeeded. The European people have, like the seeds in the Gospel parable, been devoured, scorched, and choked out of their heartfelt faith in Christ. They no longer are the “good ground” where faith can flourish because they have not kept their hearts. They have allowed the devil to convince them that it is their great minds divorced from their hearts that can lead them from the darkness of prejudice and superstition to the light. To what light? The devil never defines that light, he simply fills men’s minds with a contempt for humanity and a great dream of a heaven on earth. Heaven on earth will come about through the good offices of the enlightened minds of illuminated men and women who shun the plague-ridden ground of the antique Europeans, in order to stand firmly in the devil’s kingdom of hell on earth.
We have all heard the phrase, “shun them as if they had the plague.” That has been and continues to be the liberals’ response to the antique Europeans. And the grazers in church and state have responded to the liberals’ condemnation of the plague-ridden Europeans with stout denials of their connection to the antique Europeans: “We are not like them: we are not racist, we are not sexist.” But the liberals always err on the side of caution. It is better to assume that all whites, even whites who do not seem to have any outward marks of the plague, are carriers of the fatal illness than to risk infection. “Eradicate them all,” is the mantra of the mad-dog liberals. Of course such a credo will ultimately result in the destruction of the liberals themselves, as they turn on each other with the suspicion that “even thee, my fellow liberal, show signs of the plague.” No member of the white race will ultimately be pure enough, but before the final purging of the carriers of the plague, the liberals will stave off their own end by convincing themselves they can become pure, they can be saved from the plague by a fierce, unequivocal condemnation of the white, Christ-bearing race.
Tragically, the grazers who are seeking to avoid the plague of the antique Europeans do not realize that they already have the real plague. They are not in the final stages of the plague as the mad-dog liberals are, but they most definitely have the plague. It is the antique Europeans whom the grazers shun that are free of the plague. It has been my experience, sadly, that you cannot bring the white grazers back. You cannot get them to return to Christian Europe. You might be able to get them interested in a certain aspect of the antique Europeans’ heritage, but as soon as the grazer realizes that aspect leads to the plague-ridden world of old Europe, he will draw back to what he thinks, because the illuminated liberals have told him so, is the safe, non-plague ridden land of Liberaldom.
Let me mention one example, out of the countless ones I could give, of a grazer who would not be ‘lured’ back to ‘plague-ridden’ Christian Europe. A friend/acquaintance of mine had managed to maintain her ‘Catholic to the Max’ stance through the reign of John Paul II, but Francis the blasphemer got to her. She told me that she hated him, even though she knew it was wrong to hate the Pope. I told her that her hatred was well-placed, and I quoted Burke’s statement about love and hate: “They never will love where they ought to love, who do not hate where they ought to hate.” She liked the quote and asked me to tell her more about Burke. I did, telling her about his critique of modernity and his defense of old Europe, and I never heard from that ‘friend’ of over thirty years again. Is that just one isolated incident? No, it is not. Whenever I present old Europe to a white grazer as an entity separate and distinct from modern Europe, a separate and distinct world that we should enter leaving modern Europe behind, the white grazer flees from me as if I have the plague.
What is it that keeps the white grazer in the world that will surely kill him, body and soul, and makes him avoid the “good ground” of Christian Europe as the plague? Certainly the fear that the man born blind overcomes, the fear of being cast out of the liberals’ synagogue, is at the root of the white grazer’s fear. But how has the devil, through his liberal minions, managed to convince the white grazer that all that is good and noble and pure is contained within the liberals’ synagogue, while all that is evil, ignoble, and impure stems from Christian Europe?
The first thing that comes to mind is that the liberals have managed to brand the antique Europeans with the racist and sexist labels: “We can’t look to them, we can’t go back, because they were racists and sexists.” But that doesn’t explain the white grazers’ fear of old Europe. Why, if you are a Christian, would you allow the liberals to define the good? Why would you let them demonize your people who worshipped Christ rather than the noble savage and supported the Christian patriarchy rather than a Lady Macbeth matriarchy? You would do such a thing if you accepted the clergy’s break from God. When the Grand Inquisitors decreed that the “good ground,” which consisted of human hearts connected to His sacred heart, was not the “good ground,” that their illuminated minds were all that was necessary for faith, the stage was set for Satan to enter into the heart of Christian Europe and turn Christendom into Satandom. It doesn’t matter whether you are among the Protestant fundamentalists or the Catholic traditionalists, their attitude toward the “good ground” is the same: “That is merely culture and culture is of no consequence.” Oh really? What the inquisitors dismiss as ‘mere culture’ is everything; it is our response, the human response, to God’s grace. If men are not allowed a Christian culture, a solid “good ground” to stand on, because the theologians tell them that a Christian culture is an impossibility, then men will embrace Satan’s culture while affirming an intellectual belief in a nebulous intellectual concept of God. This is why you have pro-abort feminists distributing communion in the Catholic Church and evangelical Christians slavishly worshipping the unrepentant Jew in their churches. When God is pure intellect, you can make him into anything you want – a ‘him’ or a ‘her,’ an ‘it’ or a ‘cosmic force.’
When I speak of culture I am not speaking of something that only an elite band of superior intellectuals can understand, such as opera or modernist painting. I am speaking of what Pastor Grundtvig called, “the living well springs” of life, which are and ever shall be human hearts responding to God’s grace. The theologians look at the human heart and see evil, so they seek refuge from that evil in the human mind. But in that flight, they have embraced evil. Satan lies in wait for all men and women who shun the perilous journey through the human heart. There is great evil in the human heart, but there is also redemption. We can’t come to Him through any other way: “Behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
The white grazer will continue to graze in the plague-infested ground of Liberaldom because he is convinced that the other ground, Christian Europe, is the plague-ridden ground. So long as what is human is considered stupid and what is inhuman is considered intelligent, the white grazer will remain estranged from his people and His God. Is there no hope then? There is a seemingly impassable gulf between the grazer’s world and Christian Europe. A mediator who is both divine and human is necessary to bridge that gulf. We can only bear witness to that ‘little’ God, the God who enters human hearts; we cannot make the grazer respond to that God.
It is easy for me to answer the question, “Do you hate the liberals?” Yes, I hate them as I hate the devil and all his works. But it is much more difficult to explain my feelings about the white grazers. They stand with the liberals, they do not love God or their people enough to defy the rulers of the liberal synagogue as the man born blind defied them. However, they do have some humanity, and some feeling for the Christ of the Gospels. My own parents were grazers, so how can I hate the grazers? Yet, the grazers are the enablers of Satan. Without their fear of being cast out of the liberals’ synagogue into the plague-ridden ground of Christian Europe, the devil could not isolate and destroy the Christian remnant. There is no Christian communion because those in the ‘Christian’ community of grazers are afraid of the liberals who, like a perverse Satanic sower, are busily seeking out the ‘bad seeds,’ the men and women with hearts of flesh, so that those ‘bad seeds’ can be destroyed.
The courage exhibited by the man born blind, the moral courage to defy the Pharisees, came from a man who was touched to the heart by Jesus Christ. If we have no heart that can be touched by anything stemming from the European people who made Christ the center of their culture, we will never rid ourselves of the liberal plague. It will gradually consume us by killing our bodies and defiling our souls. What is to be done when the people who once saw a great light allow the devil to kill the living well-spring of life, the human heart? There is only one thing that can be done. We can keep that well-spring alive by giving Him, our Lord and Savior, and them, the antique Europeans, our love and our loyalty. Christina Rossetti, that wonderful Christian poet, speaks to us from the other side, the “good ground,” of the divide between old Europe and new Europe: “Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.” In order to live in Christina Rossetti’s Europe, we must have hearts of flesh. His grace still works through those “mysterious human relationships,” our love of our kith and kin, which Thomas Hughes writes about. Sisyphus could not push that rock up the hill within the confines of pagan Greece. We can, if we allow the dear Christ to once again enter our hearts. Simple prayers are best: Please God, give me the heart to love Thee in and through thy people. In Christ’s name, Amen. +
