Vietnamese Servant of God Marcel Tan, CSsR, was killed by communists.  That’s
pretty widely known.  What may not be as widely known is that he suffered at the hands of communists/leftists throughout his life, even before WWII.

As Van was growing up, his family became mired in poverty.  His mother sent him to a school/church run by a priest.  It turns out, this priest was very  unworthy of his pious mother’s trust.  He drank, he gambled, and he womanized.  Even wore, he turned over the formation of the young boys entrusted to him to  extremely deranged and perverse individuals, the leader of which was actually an infiltrator from the communist party cadres being formed up by Nguyen That Tan (Ho Chi Minh) in pre-war Marcel_Van_Joachim_Nguyen_tan_VanVietnam.  He was also a sicko child molester.  He tried to violate Van’s purity in every way imaginable, and wound up inflicting grave spiritual wounds on the boy.

This is exactly the program communists intended for their agents in the Church to carry out – wrecking holy souls, destroying innocence, spreading vice and evil, and creating chaos in order to destroy the moral credibility of the Church and weaken it as a source of opposition to communist world domination.

From Marcel Van, The Triumph of Love, pp. 36-41 (segments):

“In the rectory there was a certain boy [more like a teen, probably a late teen. His name was Vinh] who was half-monitor, half-teacher; he detested me especially because one day he had wanted me to commit an action against the Sixth Commandment…..But I had resisted energetically, and from then on I avoided that man’s presence.  Moreover, I was always regarded as an exemplary child, whereas he was constantly reprimanded by the priest. [Which makes one wonder why the priest kept him in his employ]  This annoyed him and kindled his hatred against me……

Every morning he would call me to his room under the pretext of asking about my health and initiating me into the “life of perfection.”………..After questioning me, he would motion me to lie on the floor, then give me a beating with a rattan switch as he sang at the top of his lungs.  Finally, he would give me this order with his eyes: “You are forbidden to cry!”………Then, before dismissing me, he would placevan1413 his index finger before his lips with a severe look and..give me this order: “You are forbidden to talk about this.”  Sometimes he would say, “If you talk, I will bury you alive.” [typical behavior from a child molester]

Van certainly did not open his mouth.  Within a week his poor little body could not find a comfortable position or take any rest……..Finally, traces of blood were found   on his shirt discovered in the laundry drew some attention to the problem.  The pitiless torturer suspected of being the author of these beatings was warned to change his ways.  [We can see how the problem of weak priests not dealing with wanton immorality preying upon children dates back decades.] But he would know how to take his revenge.

Shortly after this first persecution, another more collective one began. Profiting from the pastor’s absence, the catechists set up a shameful kangaroo court whose purpose was to “judge” the undesirable Van.  Master Vinh presided as chief justice.  Court was held church after evening prayers.  The child describes the humiliating scene:

When I was brought before this people’s court, I was stripped of all my clothes and then given a banana leaf loin cloth, except on certain days when I did not have even that………Their sole intention was to make me act like an idiot for their amusement.  They therefore asked me questions on loose and dirty subjects to make me squirm.  But I always kept silence or answered them very briefly……

images…..Exasperated by the boy’s resistance, the perverse monitor made a second attempt to rape him.  Van again resisted him “with all my might,” in spite of threats of being “buried alive.”  Furious, Vinh again assembled the odious tribunal that very evening, and the implacable sentence fell: “You are henceforth forbidden to receive Holy Communion!” [Think of the diabolical inversion here.  He is denied Communion not for engaging in sin, but for refusing to do so!]  Van protested and stood up to the entire assembly.  Tempers flared, and he was badly beaten.  The boy collapsed, he could no longer stand, so he was tied to a bed in a sitting position…….

……Finally he was allowed to receive Communion, “but forbidden to eat, to see whether I would live or die.”  The next day Van went to Communion and ate no food. That evening, he was very weak…….

“The next morning,” relates Van, I went to Communion again, but it was the last time. After Communion that day, my heart felt drier than usual and I was overcome with an indescribable sorrow.  I was extremely disturbed by the questions they had asked me.

Indeed, with the perverse intention of confusing Van, the wicked pseudo-catechists “had evoked the lives of past Saints,” saying that they “went to Communion one day and gave thanks for a year.”……..

———End Quote———

The communist goal was achieved – horribly confused and abused, his innocence in many matters lost, never to be regained, Van began to suffer horrible scruples and the sublime, miraculous piety and holy knowledge he had possessed from a very early age disappeared for many years.  He eventually overcame his scruples and regained his holy interior life, but only after enormous suffering and personal lost.  This scene, repeated thousands of times around the world by deliberate communist infiltration of the Church, paved the way for the disasters of the 20th century and the near-collapse of the Church at this time.  It was a plan so successful, only the devil himself could have devised it.

Marcel Van, please pray for us, and our Holy Mother Church, so sorrowfully afflicted and divided in these times of darkness!

Mass AG bans all semi-auto rifles July 22, 2016

The decree – because it’s not a law, it’s simply the decree of a politician – is allegedly only targeted at so-called “assault weapons,” but it is so broadly worded that virtually any semi-automatic rifle could be judged “illegal.”  In fact, the provisions are so broad even many bolt-action or other types of weapons could be included.  That’s the real danger of this illegal decree, it is so vague and nebulous an overly zealous cop or prosecutor could wreak havoc with people’s lives, all for owning a gun that is perfectly legal by the letter of the law.

Also note that the language of the decree leaves plenty of room to confiscate weapons that were perfectly legal when bought, though now allowed to remain under a grandfather clause:

 Gun buyers raced to snap up military-style weapons on Wednesday as Attorney General Maura Healey moved to bar the sale of rifles that have been altered slightly to evade the state’s assault weapon ban……[The edict was announced Wednesday, and went into effect the next day.  Nice.  How would leftists react if a state attorney general declared abortion illegal, with the ban going into effect the next day?  They’d lose their minds.  And yet one cannot find even a remote justification for baby-slaughter in the Constitution, while the 2nd Amendment is as clear as day.]

…….The stores were responding to an order Healey issued to the state’s 350 gun dealers telling them to immediately stop selling “duplicate” versions of common assault rifles like the AR-15, which she argues are illegal under the state’s 1998 assault weapons ban.

The law bans duplicate weapons but has left it to gun manufacturers to define which weapons would fall into that category. [That is completely untrue.  In fact, it’s an inversion of the Truth. When the federal assault weapons ban was first brought forward by the Clinton Administration in the early 90s, teh NRA and gun manufacturers immediately conveyed their concern that no one knew just exactly what an assault weapon was.  So, in the federal law, upon which the Mass law was based, defined a number of (meaningless) features in an attempt to define an “assault weapon.”  To be an assault weapon, a firearm had to possess 2 or 3 of the listed features.  Now, these distinctions were false and dumb and only intended to ban certain weapons entirely, but because distinctions had to be made to arrive at a definition, it was also possible to produce a gun that didn’t have those features/distinctions and thus was compliant with the ban.  Blaming gun manufacturers/owners for figuring ways around a rule written by their mortal enemies and then accusing them of getting to “define the weapons” is lunacy]

Manufacturers exploited that “loophole,” she said, to produce assault rifles that had “small tweaks” but were functionally identical to the banned weapons. Some, for example, had no flash suppressor or featured a fixed instead of a folding stock.

She said the directive clarifies that duplicate guns are those that have internal operating systems that are essentially the same as illegal assault weapons, or have key functional components that are interchangeable with those of banned weapons.

You can see from the last paragraph just how ill-defined and dangerous this is.  This is, in fact, a back-door way to banning huge swaths of firearms used today, even relatively prosaic hunting rifles, shotguns, and handguns.  There are only a few basic operating systems to make a semi-auto rifle work.  Because of that, and because of the wide number of firearms listed in the ban, virtually any semi-auto, including handguns, could be interpreted to be in violation.  Then there is the issue of a key functional component?  There is no mention of what that includes.  Because things like tactical stocks, flash suppressors, rails, and other components are added to certain bolt-action, lever action, and even break-action rifles, are they now illegal?  No one knows, because this edict was only issued Wednesday and went into effect yesterday.

Disarming citizens has been the goal of every leftist government that has ever come to power.  That disarmament led directly to the slaughter of millions of that government’s own citizens.  I would say this lawless edict would never stand, but with Scalia dead, the Supreme Court deadlocked, and Hillary waiting in the wings, I don’t think we can assume anything about the courts anymore – except, likely, just more and more and more bad news.

This is really just a paving of the way for a Hillary administration to ban guns by executive fiat.  This is a test case, and I promise you it was carefully crafted and timed to be heading through the courts in the early months of Hillary’s administration, should the sorrowful witch be elected.  Buy now, and buy lots.

This  may sound a bit excessive, but how long before certain books are banned and burned, books conveying ideas too dangerous for people to be able to “handle,” ideas that “provoke violence” or “intolerance?”  How many Americans already hold the Bible in such ill-repute?  The same exact logic that now applies to guns could easily be extended to books or other sources of information, for if a “bad gun” can kill a dozen, a “bad idea” can kill millions. In truth, the bad ideas are mostly on the other side, but they don’t see it that way, and they have the whip hand.
