Hungarian bishop speaks of Muslim "invasion"

Hungarian bishop speaks of "invasion" of Muslim refugees

The Hungarian Bishop Laszlo Kiss-Rigo causes a sensation with his dramatic statements. Muslim refugees in his country were a threat and also arrogant. Francis had no idea of the situation.

On a highway refugees on Monday night journey in the direction of the Hungarian capital Budapest. The police could not hold them back.

While Pope Francis calls Europe's Catholics to greater solidarity with refugees, one of his bishops in Hungary causes a stir with his dramatic statements.

"They are not refugees. This is an invasion, "said Bishop László Kiss-Rigó. "They come here and shout out 'Allah is great'. They want to take control. "

 The bishop of the border town of Szeged, on the border with Serbia and Romania, where tens of thousands of refugees from countries such as Syria have reached the EU, stood behind Prime Minister, Viktor Orban and his hard-line policy on refugees.

"I fully agree with him," said the 60-year-old Bishop Kiss-Rigó. Pope Francis on the other hand, "does not know the situation." The Muslim refugees are a threat to Europe's "universal Christian values." They do not deserve support because they had money. They also left behind garbage and behaved in an "arrogant and cynical" manner.

Hungary is not considered a particularly religious country. Many are proud of the historical role of their country as a European bulwark against attacks from the Orient. Hungary's national holiday commemorates the Christianization of the country more than 1,000 years ago.
Other church leaders want to help

With his statements Kiss-Rigó apparently does not speak for the majority in the Hungarian Catholic Church. The Pope's call to open parishes and Catholic centrrs for refugees, the Church will comply with "with joy and willingness", declared Hungary's Primate Cardinal Peter Erdo and the President of the Hungarian Bishops' Conference, Andras Veres, on Monday, according to the Italian Catholic press agency, SIR.

Inside the mind of a modernist

Reactions 
"A transcript of the Holy Father’s prepared statement, which merits closer attention than one might imagine, is available on the Holy See’s website in Spanish, the language in which it was delivered, and Italian, the text that I parsed for the present discussion.

Revealed within the Pope’s words (or better stated, reconfirmed within his words) are the machinations of a modernist mind; the same that conjured up the idea of appointing a Synod of Bishops to deliberate changes to ancient pastoral practices that can admit of no such thing without undermining the immutable doctrines from which they spring.

In his message to the gathering of theologians, Pope Francis spoke of an allegedly healthy tension between the Universal Church, custodian of the “received tradition,” and the local Church, where the faith is actually lived in “reality.”"

Cardinal Müller with considerable foresight sounded alarm bells about this false dichotomy.

“nothing more than the introduction of subjectivism and arbitrariness, wrapped up in sentimental and smug religious terminology.”

To rig one Synod, Pope Francis, may be regarded as a misfortune. To rig two looks like more than carelessness.

To paraphrase Oscar Wilde....

"A new book, The Rigging of a Vatican Synod?: An Investigation into Alleged Manipulation at the Extraordinary Synod on the Family, will shed much light on allegations that the Extraordinary Synod, held in Rome last October, was subject to manipulation. The book has been written by highly respected Vatican journalist Edward Pentin and carries the endorsement of Wilfrid Fox Cardinal Napier, Archbishop of Durban. Cardinal Napier is one of the fifteen members of the permanent council of cardinals and bishops overseeing the Synod of Bishops, he attended the Extraordinary Synod and was a member of the committee that drafted the final relatio synodi of that Synod."

Rigging of the Synod outcome begins

Reactions 
Clearly very dark forces are going to be at work at the Synod....if they succeed and given the manner of the operation, they deprive its results of all legitimacy.

"However, the adapters have failed to win over the Synod of Bishops to their positions, and this is the reason the General Secretary of the Synod considered changing the rules. Some well-informed people say that the 2015 Synod will be completely different from any other. First of all, a midterm report will not be released. Last year, the midterm report was completely revised by some of the Pope’s closest collaborators prior to its release, and the report resulted in many controversies. Even Cardinal Petr Erdo, the Synod’s General Relator, distanced himself from the report. But its release united the followers of the Church’s doctrine, who stood up against the Synod’s drift. They ultimately achieved an acceptable compromise for the Synod’s Final Report, which was filled with biblical references that had been lacking in the midterm report.

Avoiding the release of a midterm report would mean eliminating any possibility of discussion. The plan is for the Synod to carry out discussions mostly in “small groups” (circuli minores) without a general discussion. In the end, the reports of the small groups would be put in the Pope’s hands, and the Pope would then give a final address. No final report or post-synodal apostolic exhortation is foreseen at the moment, at least according to recent rumors. In this way the adapters hope to convince the Pope to employ vague language so they can eventually exploit his words."
