"Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?" - Hitler, 1939.
The Armenian Church was absolutely under attack by the Muslims. People use the euphemism of the "Ottoman Turks"-hey Muslims did this. And, some still deny the "Great Crime" to this day.
1893–96 Armenian population in Ottoman Empire: 1,003,571 (Ottoman Turkish statistics)
1914 Armenian population in Ottoman Empire: 1,219,323 (Ottoman Turkish statistics)
1921 Armenian population in Turkey: 281,000 (US estimate) wiki statistics
In 1914, the Armenian Patriarch in Constantinople presented a list of the Armenian holy sites under his supervision. The list contained 2,549 religious places of which 200 were monasteries while 1,600 were churches. In 1974 UNESCO stated that after 1923, out of 913 Armenian historical monuments left in Eastern Turkey, 464 have vanished completely, 252 are in ruins, and 197 are in need of repair (in stable conditions). wiki again
As of 2011, the governments of twenty-one countries, including Russia, France, as well as forty-three states of the United States of America, have recognized the events as 'genocide'. Turkey and Azerbaijan deny the Armenian genocide.
It is shameful that in Great Britain, only Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have recognized this genocide. England has not. Ireland has not recognized this genocide, which is absolutely hypocritical of this state, and in America, 43 U.S. states have recognized the Armenian Genocide; as of May 2011 this includes every state in the Union with the exception of Alabama, Mississippi,West Virginia, Indiana, Iowa, Wyoming, and South Dakota. wiki again

which is why practicing Catholics are significantly less likely to break up — but many refuse because they are cowards begging for the world’s approval. http://theaquilareport.com/ive-been-divorced-four-times-but-homosexuals-are-the-ones-destroying-marriage/?utm_source=rss

The Roman Catholic Church will never, never, never change Her position on marriage, same-sex marriage, intercommunion, or the teachings on any other doctrine.
Christ protects His Church. Will there be schisms? Yes, and soon. In affect, many Catholics in America and Europe are already either schismatics or heretics. To apostasize is to affect your immortal soul. A Catholic who falls away is in mortal sin, period. Those people who have disobeyed the Church in serious matters and are receiving Communion are committing sacrilege.
We can pray. We can fast. And, we need to not be complacent about our own salvation. Pray the prayer of final perseverance I put on this blog earlier this week.
Be concerned about your own salvation as well as that of others.

I highly recommend reading this article. Thanks to Spencer for the heads-up
A misquotation of Gramsci does not spoil this great article...
Here is a section and some quotations.
“Sabotaging Its Miserable House”
We could examine more of Cardinal Dolan’s assertions about Islamic values — “your defense of life, your desire for harmony and unity,” etc. — but it’s more important to consider his appearance at the mosque in the larger context of long-term Islamist strategy. The strategy is essentially the same as the one that Italian political theorist Antonio Gramsci recommended to communists in the 1930s — namely, the “long march through the institutions.” The Islamic version of the strategy was first outlined by Hasan al-Bana, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, and then developed by theorists such as Sayyid Qutb and Maulana Mawdudi. More recently, the strategy has been used to great effect by Prime Minister Recep Erdogan in gradually transforming secularist Turkey into an Islamist society. The strategy includes the West as well. A secret twenty-page document written in 1991 by a member of the Board of Directors of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America and later obtained by the FBI, sets forth the group’s mission as “a grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers.”
“From within…by their hands.” The author seems to have a good grasp of the Western penchant for cooperating in its own undoing. The long march through the institutions doesn’t need to take that much time when the institutions are throwing open the doors and putting out the welcome mat. One of the institutions that the Muslim Brotherhood aims to influence and manipulate is the Catholic Church. Representatives of Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups such as the Islamic Society of North America and the Islamic Circle of North America have already managed to get themselves appointed as the bishops’ main dialogue partners in the U.S. Moreover, numerous Catholic colleges seem also to have succumbed to the charms of Islam. Some of the Islamic studies courses served up to Catholic students and seminarians might as well have “Made in Saudi Arabia” stamped on the front. In addition, Catholic high schools can generally be counted on to present a whitewashed picture of Islam.
and this from the article...
Iranian lawmakers are now seeking to lower the age of marriage for girls to nine. Mohammad Ali Isfenani, chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee, called the current minimum age of thirteen “un-Islamic.”
A 2010 Pew Forum survey of public opinion found that eighty-four percent of Egyptians agree that apostates should be killed. A Pew survey of Pakistanis revealed that seventy-eight percent favor death for those who leave Islam.
...a 2012 poll conducted by Wenzel Strategies found that fifty-eight percent of Muslim-American citizens believe that criticism of Islam or Muhammad should not be allowed under the U.S. Constitution. Forty-six percent said that Americans who criticize or parody Islam should face criminal charges, while one in eight respondents felt that such crimes merit the death penalty. Another forty-two percent said that Christians do not have the right to evangelize Muslims.
The leadership is the Church must address these things. But, I do not see one cardinal, bishop or priest being honest about Islam. Where are the leaders? Where are the Men of the West?
