In a story coming out of Chechnya, there are rumors that the republic is going to “eliminate” its entire homosexual population before the beginning of Ramadan this year:
A British foreign minister has warned that the Chechen Republic government is planning to “eliminate” its entire gay population by the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
“Human rights groups report that these anti-gay campaigns and killings are orchestrated by the head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov,” U.K. minister of state for the Foreign Office Sir Alan Duncan said before Parliament, the Independent reported on Tuesday.
“He has carried out other violent campaigns in the past, and this time he is directing his efforts at the LGBT community. Sources have said that he wants the community eliminated by the start of Ramadan,” he added.
Duncan further described the reports coming out of Chechnya, a Muslim-majority nation that is a federal subject of Russia, as “utterly barbaric.”
News agencies around the world, including The Guardian, have shared the stories of gay men who managed to escape Chechnya, and are now speaking out before the world about what they experienced. One man, identified as Adam, said earlier in April that he was rounded up by authorities in the Islamic nation, and tortured in sadistic ways.
“At least once a day, Adam’s captors attached metal clamps to his fingers and toes. One of the men then cranked a handle on a machine to which the clamps were linked with wires, and sent powerful electric shocks through his body,” the Guardian report described.
“If he managed not to scream, others would join in, beating him with wooden sticks or metal rods.”
The officials tortured him for being gay, and attempted to get him to expose other gay men in Chechnya.
“Sometimes they were trying to get information from me; other times they were just amusing themselves,” Adam explained.
Chechen leader Kadyrov is also being accused of rounding up at least 100 men suspected of homosexuality and sending them to “concentration camps” where at least four men are believed to have been killed.
Kadyrov, who follows Sunni Islam, has in the past instituted “ideological vetting” of imams, and has incorporated elements of Chechen Sufism and popular Islam onto traditional Sunni Islam in his running of the region, Radio Free Europe reported in 2016.
Despite several human rights groups, including the United Nations, expressing their concern over the reports of the torture and murder of gay people, Kadyrov has strongly denied any such brutalities are taking place.
NBC News reported earlier in April that the Chechen leader is accusing international organizations of conducting a “massive information attack … using the most unworthy methods, reality is distorted, attempts are being made to blacken our society, lifestyle, traditions and customs.”
Alvi Karimov, a spokesperson for Kadyrov, has even denied that gay people exist in the territory.
“If there were such people in Chechnya, law enforcement agencies wouldn’t need to have anything to do with them because their relatives would send them somewhere from which there is no returning,” Karimov said in response to human rights concerns.
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has urged reports of concentration camps to be investigated, however, and said last week: “We continue to be disturbed by reports of kidnapping, torture, and murder of people in Chechnya based on their sexual orientation and those persecuted by association.
“If true, this violation of human rights cannot be ignored. Chechen authorities must immediately investigate these allegations, hold anyone involved accountable, and take steps to prevent future abuses.”(source)
At the same time this is happening a major Evangelical Christian Politician in the UK, Tim Farron, has given a recent interview, he says that sodomy between two men is not a sin and that ‘religion doesn’t matter in politics’:
The Liberal Democrat leader, Tim Farron, has confirmed that he does not believe gay sex to be a sin, saying that while he had no wish to “pontificate on theological matters”, he also did not want people to misunderstand his religious beliefs.
Farron, an evangelical Christian, has faced a series of questions about his views on the subject in recent days, prompted in part by an interview two years ago in which, when asked if homosexuality was a sin, he responded: “We are all sinners.”
During a campaign visit last week, Farron insisted he had been misinterpreted. The idea of homosexuality being a sin was “not a statement that I make, this is something I get asked because of my faith”, he told the Guardian.
Speaking to the BBC on Tuesday, Farron clarified his views further to stress that he also does not believe gay sex itself is sinful.
“I don’t believe that gay sex is a sin,” he said. “I take the view though that as a political leader my job is not to pontificate on theological matters. This had become a talking point, an issue, and in that case if people have got the wrong impression of what I think about on these issues, then that’s something it’s right you correct.”
Farron said he was wary of mixing religion and politics: “I’m quite careful about how I talk about my faith,” he said. “I don’t bang on about it. I don’t make a secret of it, either. When I get asked theological questions, which I don’t think many other politicians do get asked, I kind of took the view that it would be better for me to say, this is a matter of theological nitpicking – let’s talk about the politics.

“That’s why it’s really important I answer it clearly today and say, it’s not, and I don’t feel it is.”
Asked why he had not clarified this before, Farron said he had not wanted to “get into a series of questions unpicking the theology of the Bible,” and rejected the idea he had changed his public views because of the election.
“I don’t think people want political party leaders telling them what is and isn’t sin,” he said. “People’s faith is private, and it’s up to them to decide how they make these interpretations. For me, separating faith from politics means you shouldn’t be trying to have a running commentary on these things, and also shouldn’t be trying to impose one’s beliefs on others.” (source)
I though it was quite interesting how these two stories are coming out alongside each other because they speak much about the confused and interesting times in which we life.
There is a lot of change that is preparing to take place in the entire world order. Some of this is good, some of this is clearly not good, but a massive move is about to take place. The news and social movements indicate it clearly. The world order erected post World War II is falling apart and Germany and Japan, having been loosed from their respective bonds, are reinstituting major plans they have been working on for decades to bring back their old empires. Turkey, Germany and Japan’s historical ally, is reviving the once-thought deceased Ottoman Empire into a new order that will persecute Christianity and the Church in ways not seen in centuries. The population changes in Western Europe caused by the massive population transfer of Muslims into the West, regardless of the fact that these people are being brought intentionally by the European governments and regardless of the ends for which they are going to be manipulated and used for, have already changed the societies in ways that may not be able to be altered forever. America, once looked to as a paragon of virtue, morality, and a model for the world to follow, is giving to follow old ideas about eugenics and power that haunted its not-too-recent past.
Paganism has returned to the west
At the center of all of this destruction is a massive decline in Christianity and especially the role and influence of the Catholic Church worldwide. For while Christianity is spreading far and wide, those who believe are coming under increasingly hostile persecution. In non-Western nations, it comes in the form of direct attack from Muslims or other pagans. In Western societies, it is the fruit of many years of apostasy in which the once-Christian peoples of these nations have turned against the faith which brought and sustained them, and are now turning towards a new paganism as the find for now, legal ways of persecuting Christians and preventing them from professing their Faith with the goal of eventually making being a Christian something difficult and socially undesirable.
The most obvious here is that homosexuality is a sin that is worthy of death. These are not our words, but the words of sacred scripture in both the old and the new testament, have been echoed by the Church fathers and councils for centuries, and is nothing new in terms of doctrine as taught and practiced throughout history and is a point that we have tirelessly hammered away at. While evil and sin will always be with us until Christ returns, it is the job of a Christian society to enjoin righteousness and uproot evils, especially manifest ones such as homosexuality which bears the rotten fruits and is an indicator of a host of terrible sins including pedophilia, sadism, and the occult. There is a reason why the Bible says that homosexuality is one of only four sins which ‘cry out to Heaven for vengeance’. Homosexuality has no place in any society because of how evil it is. To support homosexuality is to condone its fruits, and to fight it is to fight the wicked fruit it naturally bears.
It makes therefore a very interesting situation, and a disturbing measure of how far the West has reverted to paganism to see the acceptance of homosexuality in society and the persecution of people, mainly Christians, who choose to stand against it. But it is not just the acceptance of homosexuality, but how this perversion has been so ingrained into the culture that a man who calls himself a “Christian” would fail to see the manifest evil in front of him and instead embrace it as one would a friend.
One can also see here how the support of or opposition to homosexuality is being weaponized against others, in this case Russia and her territory in Muslim Chechnya, who are publicly fighting homosexuality. These people go so far as to call Russia and Chechnya “evil” for this, and as we have noted that America and her allies in the European Union want to start a war with Russia, they are attempting to use these charges of “homosexual death camps” to stir up anger against Russia and her allies.
A supposed location of a “gay death camp” as reported in the media
Speaking of “homosexual death camps’, where is the concrete evidence of these “camps,” and if so, what constitutes what is being called a “camp?” Notice how in spite of all of the condemnations, claims, protests, and statements made against Russia and Chechnya over these ‘camps,’ there is also a considerable dearth of evidence and what evidence is being presented is questionable. Not only that, but that Russia herself has asked that before condemnations are issued a formal investigation needs to be made, and nothing of the kind is happening? This pattern should sound familiar by now, because that is exactly what happened in Syria with the “chemical weapons charges” against President Asad, which we reported were patently false and instead manufactured by American and European propagandists to beat the drums of war against Russia.
How interesting of times it is that Russia and even Muslims are being condemned for fighting against open and heinous sin and yet their opposition to that sin is being used by America, the self-professed defender of “religious freedom,” and her allies to start a war. How interesting it is that Christian “pastors” and “leaders” and those affiliated with the name of Christ in public will side with the worst of sins now and instead refuse to show any support to those who are fighting sin, thus committing two wrongs at once, because it is socially acceptable to do so.
Throughout the Bible, God used the enemies of Israel to punish them when they sinned. He has done this throughout history and continues to do it today. Therefore, one should not be surprised at the increasing Islamization of the formerly Christian peoples of Europe and America, for as much as it comes through the policies of governments, it is taking place ultimately because of sin. Indeed, although Islam supports homosexuality (something which we have extensively documented) and many other evils, God will give us up to them unless we repent of our ways just as he gave the Hebrews up to the Assyrians and then the Babylonians.
The Blessed Virgin declared in Sacred Scripture (Luke 1:46-55) that the mercy of God is on those who fear Him in every generation. God is merciful but He is also just, as the two are inseparable and his name will not be mocked, especially by people who claim to follow his standard. There is a reason why she warned at Fatima, whose 100th anniversary is approaching, about the annihilation of nations is men do not cease sinning. Indeed, if God annihilated two small cities for this sin, imagine what will happen now that the entire world is submerged in this same filth to a greater extend than those two places ever were…
