War Within. War Without.

by Anselm

It seems that the CDF’s materials from last week have continued to reverberate throughout the mainstream press in the US. Most of the coverage is negative and can be reduced to attacks against “the all male hierarchy that needs to get with the times.”

If you look at history even in the most cursory way, it’s the same old rhetoric now in 21st century e-containers. Real progressive! Real impressive!  But the reality is that

We’re still here.

That wasn’t too obnoxious was it?

Unfortunately the “physical force”  war against the church remains on the African continent. As reported by the AP:

On Saturday night, a Muslim mob burned a Catholic church in Sudan frequented mostly by South Sudanese. The church in Khartoum’s Al-Jiraif district was built on a disputed plot of land, but the attack appeared to be part of the fallout from ongoing hostilities between Sudan and South Sudan.

Is this about land? Political ideology? Religion?

Let’s not fool ourselves. It doesn’t take much to see through land disputes.
