Poetic justice

Payback's a bitch
Ironic, ain't it?
I know we're supposed to be charitable and compassionate and all that, but there are times when schadenfreude is just too delicious to pass up. Like, say, when a church manages to solve its Gay Mafia problem by using the results of Christian charity and decency to wipe out the stains left by the perversions of its antagonists:
A group of French Catholics are wielding the sharp edge of capitalism to their advantage, having bought a gay bar next to their church so they can legally turn out the revellers within. 
It is reported the Missionaries of Divine Mercy have long enjoyed a strained relationship with the late-opening ‘Texas Bar’ on the seafront in the French Mediterranean town of Toulon. After the gay bar filed for bankruptcy and the premises was auctioned by the city to the highest bidder, the church leapt at the chance and immediately started appealing for donations. 
The missionary fund received a boost when the diocesan priest made a €15,000 donation. The website of the Mission reported that other buyers were prepared to put in higher bids for the prime seafront property, but withdrew from the sale when they saw members of the order praying during the auction. 
In a statement the Missionaries of Divine Mercy said: “You will understand the importance of this place for our evangelization in the area. So the Sodom bar will become the pub of Mercy”. [Didact: Amen, gentlemen.]
The bar will now be turned into a mission to further the Christian development of the area. 
TheLocal.fr reports some in the local gay community are not delighted by the sale. The president of the ‘Gay Power Toulon Association’ said “I would have preferred if someone else got it but they’ve wanted the place for years. 
To them, it’s like Satan is right next to their church. They’ll need a whole bunch of exorcists to get rid of everything that’s happened in there”.
They'll need a lot more than exorcists, in my opinion. I'm thinking maybe a laser vaporisation of the top 5 millimetres of every exposed surface, followed by thorough scrubbing with holy water.

There is tremendous irony to be found in the fact that this happened in France- which is a country that still believes that Communism can and does work.

It's also not specifically a victory against the gay agenda, it's really more of a demonstration of the way we can win the culture wars: by focusing on the weaknesses of our enemies and the strengths of our allies, by exploiting those same weaknesses, and by reclaiming that which was defiled, and restoring it to its natural dignity and decency.

At any rate, I wish the Missionaries of Divine Mercy all possible fortune in this endeavour. They did what needed to be done; we should all be so fortunate to receive such an opportunity.


  1. The Lord Himself has been known to express pleasure when Good beats Evil. You're in good Company.

    These are the end of days when France shows us precisely how it's done.
