The reek (smoke) of Master Hamilton infected as as many as it blew upon. -- An anonymous witness to the execution of Scottish Lutheran martyr Patrick Hamilton in 1528The blood of the martyrs was the seed of the Church. -- Iranaeus
What happened in Europe during the Middle Ages that is still happening in many Islamic lands today?
While I am no fan of islamophobia- a very real phenomenon in Western society today, especially on the Right- perhaps its time for us to wake up and smell the burning flesh. It's not necessary to blame Islam as such for the behavior of these animals. But we need to recognize Satan by the smell of brimstone, from whatever direction the smoke is blowing.
May what Iranaeus said of the ancient martyrs be true of the new ones as well.
