The overall context of this vicious attack against Nick happened during the March for Life - as Nick was gathered with others to chop down the sacred oak of Abortion.

After the March for Life, Nick and his school mates were first accosted by the speech of the Black Hebrew Israelites - a false Christian cult who for over an hour shouted biggoted, homophobic, racist comments at the boys. When they did not succumb to the taunts, a pagan drum-beater who had many other paths to get up to the Lincoln Memorial in order to complete the "rite" he claims he was completing, CHOSE to enter the group of Christian young men. The pagan animistic drum beater placed himself face to face with Nick - and for minutes, banged his pagan drum in Nick's face without explaining why he entered Nick's personal space - all while one of the pagan's compatriots tried to goad one of Nick's classmates into misbehaving saying, "Go back to Europe" and shouting explitives. NICK encourages his classmate to not engage.

Then, the vultures of Social Media and the Mainstream Media gathered to pick Nick's bones clean. And now, even the corrupt members of the Church's hierarchy have abandoned Nick as Peter abandoned Jesus.

Make no mistake. This was not about a "smirk," this was not about a stupid hat, this was not about any supposed chants. Each time the "evidence" provided by Nick's attackers comes up wanting, the story changes and there is another "explanation" for their outrage.

This was NOT political, this was a SPIRITUAL battle - with the devil and his minions singling out one of Christ's baptised in order to get him to back down and give in. And since Nick didn't back down and kept his composure and (I pray) retained His faith, the attack continues today as Nick remains abandoned to the wolves by even those who should be caring for him and protecting him.

I stand with Nick because I know and understand the words of St. Paul - "We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." - Ephesians 6:12

Stand strong, Nick. I stand with you. The Lord be with you.

AN OPEN LETTER TO NICK SANDMANN (the CHRISTIAN who stood in the face of evil as our Lord Jesus did, and did not flinch):

Congratulations, Nick Sandmann. Jesus said, "By their fruits you will know them." And you have shown who you are. You have served honorably, admirably, and with distinction as a member of the Church Militant and showed yourself to be a true member of the body of Christ. May God be merciful and grant you peace in the days, weeks, months and years ahead as you go forth in His Name, the Name of Christ the Crucified.

"Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather," said Jesus.


It's taken me a long time to understand this passage of Scripture - after the events of this weekend, I think I get it - and as usual, I disagree with most of the "popular" commentators on the subject and believe Jesus is speaking in somewhat in obverse here.

The corpse, is not the carrion of the spiritually dead to whom God sends chasitsement. Jesus has just pointed out that many worldlings will be trying to deceive others and point to specific places where the Son of Man is. But Jesus has already told us, "the Kingdom of God is in your midst." The Kingdom of God doesn't "come" abruptly with the coming of the Son of Man, the Kingdom of God is in the world. And, as St. Paul says, "I bear in my own body the marks of Jesus," as he has gone through the persecutions he suffered.

If you want to find Jesus in this world - look where the carrion eating vultures are - that is, the worldlings who flock around Christians seeking to destroy those who "bear in their own body the marks of Jesus."

It is the whole Christian Church scattered throughout the world that is the "corpse" in this phrase - the corpse of Jesus - awaiting the final resurrection to Glory upon the return of the Son of Man. The vultures are the worldlings who "smell blood" and seek to further destroy and persecute and pick the bones of true believers.

So Jesus is here saying, where you see a flock of worldlings seeking to destroy righteousness and goodness --- say, for instance - when a young catholic man acts with honor and integrity and distinction in a very difficult situation as he is confronted face to face with idolatrous paganism and despicable perversions of the Scriptures - all seeking to cause him to give into his base nature - and where this same young man has "put to death" the sinful desires of the human heart and is able to stand in the face of such atrocities and "grin and bare it" - there you see the Kingdom of God in this world.

THIS is what was on display on the mall of our Nation's Capital. Nick Sandmann, a true disciple of Jesus of the Catholic faith - was confronted with all manner of evil intentions when a gross pagan banged his pagan drum in his face and a group overtaken with the spirit of Jezebel taunted and goaded him and his classmates seeking to lead them to disregard the promptings of the Holy Spirit to turn the other cheek. Instead of giving in to the sinful desire for retaliation which they no doubt had, they stood up as Jesus did before the Sanhedrin and before Pilate. They showed forth that they are the very body of the risen "corpse" of Jesus. And, "Wherever the corpse is, the vultures will gather."

And the vultures they did gather - as social media, mass media, and a whole horde of vile and hateful people sought to pick his bones clean. Even the vultures within the hierarchy of their Catholic Diocese and School did exactly what St. Peter did when he denied Jesus three times. Worse, they acted as the religious leaders of Jesus day - handing Nick over to be crucified and picked apart by the angry flock of vultures.

Congratulations, Nick Sandmann. Jesus said, "By their fruits you will know them." And you have shown who you are. You have served honorably, admirably, and with distinction as a member of the Church Militant and showed yourself to be a true member of the body of Christ. May God be merciful and grant you peace in the days, weeks, months and years ahead as you go forth in His Name, the Name of Christ the Crucified.

And - of course - it's fair to ask - "Just HOW did this go viral so fast?"
