The Hidden Axis of Evil, by Fred Martinez
The Hidden Axis of Evil, Fred Martinez, 1st books, 2004
This book successfully exposes certain aspects of the culture of death both within Church and Society.
The first few chapters examine the underlying reason for abortion and what our response ought to be from the president down - that we ought to present women considering abortion with the whole truth, and we ought to give women who are suffering from post abortion trauma every assistance, particularly as they are at risk of considering a second abortion.
A fascinating chapter is on Nietzschean psychoanalysis. So many words we use today can be traced back to Nietzsche: charisma, lifestyle and, above all, values. Since, according to Nietzsche, there is no absolute truth, we must be committed to what we feel are values in a meaningless world. Nietzsche's disciples included Freud and Jung. Jungian spirituality has certainly infiltrated the church.
Martinez notes that John Walker Lindh became a Muslim after his father divorced his mother to move in with a homosexual. This was not mentioned in the Media. The vast majority of Priests involved in the sex abuse scandal to hit the USA were homosexuals, not pedophiles - again, not mentioned in the Media. The New York Times remains receptive to the gay agenda because "three-fourths of those who regularly attend the daily meetings that determine what will be on the front page the next morning are not - so- closeted homosexuals."
Some more quotes from this splendid work: "Many of the Church's key sexuality advisors are associated with the agenda created by Dr. Alfred Kinsey."
"Anne Barrett Doyle and her organisation Voice of the Faithful (VOTF) have also taken part in the cover- up of the link between homosexuality and sexual abuse by priests"
This book makes for difficult reading at times. But we live in difficult times for both Church and society, and that is what makes the book so profoundly important.
