July 3rd, 2012Cristeros: Soldiers of Christby Joseph Pearce

As the religious freedom of Catholics is being attacked by the secular fundamentalism of the Obama regime, it is well to remember the murderous history of secular fundamentalism in its continual war against Christ and His Church. I have written often on this site about the guillotines, Gulag and gas chambers of secular fundamentalism in Europe. We have also published an excellent review of the recent movie, For Greater Glory, which highlighted the butchery of secular fundamentalism much closer to home in Mexico. For Greater Glory also highlighted the resistance of the Cristeros, the "soldiers of Christ", who took up arms against the secular fundamentalist tyranny. Although many have seen this film, few will have seen the short fifteen-minute documentary about La Cristiada, which Brendan King has just sent me. Those of a squeamish disposition should be warned in advance of some of the graphic images of Christians being put to death by the secular fundamentalist butchers.  http://es.gloria.tv/?media=8121

    I wish someone would tabulate the deaths linked to secularism since the French Revolution. It would be shocking. If someone has such a link, please post it.

    Dear Mr. Pearce,

    Sorry for using this commbox for an off-topic. I don't have your email address and couldn't think of another way of contacting you.

    I am a member of the editorial committee of a Spanish online Catholic journal, called InfoCatolica (www.infocatolica.com). We would like to know whether you'd be willing to answer a few questions about your work and about Saint Austin Review. If you think it is a good idea, we would send you a few questions by email, translate your answers into Spanish and then publish them in InfoCatolica.

    We recently interviewed John C. Wright. You kindly mentioned the interview in this site (though only a blank appears when you click on the title, so I don't know whether you liked it or not).

    In any case, I would like to congratulate you for your wonderful books and for Saint Austin Review.

    Best regards,

    Bruno Moreno
