Shocking Video: ‘Coven’ of Pro-Abortion Women Attack Church in Argentina

Posted on | December 6, 2013 | 97 Comments

You may have seen this video earlier — Ed Morrissey featured it at Hot Air — but I didn’t see it until it was tweeted to me by Covenant College student Keifer Wynn and, because it was in Spanish, at first I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking at.

Abortistas atacan a católicos que defendían la Catedral de San Juan,” is the headline, and the description: “Estas son las hordas de lesbianas y abortistas del Encuentro Nacional de Mujeres.”

So, translation via Google: “Abortionists attack  Catholics defending the Cathedral of San Juan. These are the hordes of lesbians and abortionists of the National Conference of Women.” Keep in mind that when I watched this, I hadn’t even translated the titles yet:

OK, so what the heck is going on there?

Every year in Argentina, the National Conference of Women — sponsored by various non-profit NGOs — gathers in some city and, in recent years, the event has featured a protest against the Catholic Church. So when the radical feminists marched on the cathedral in San Juan de Cuyo on November 24, they were met by 1,500 Catholics who locked arms to form a human shield around the cathedral:

The women, many of them topless, spray-painted the men’s crotches and faces and swastikas on their chests and foreheads, using markers to paint their faces with Hitler-like mustaches. They also performed obscene sexual acts in front of them and pushed their breasts onto their faces, all the while shouting “get your rosaries out of our ovaries.” . . .
While the site of the protest was the front of the cathedral . . . “the whole city awoke to graffiti in favor of abortion.”
Inside the cathedral, 700 people were also in prayer accompanied by their bishop . . .
After unsuccessfully trying to get into the building, the women burned a human-sized effigy of Pope Francis. “If the pope were a woman, abortion would be legal,” they shouted . . .
The police reportedly told the media they were unable to intervene because “they are women.”

Remember, I originally saw this in Spanish, posted by the blogger at Pagina Catolica, who said (Google translation):

Our readers know that the Spanish and American folk tradition, the Coven or Salamanca (in Argentina), is a meeting of witches, in which to realize the devil is present not only acts of sorcery, but also aberrant sexual practices.

Indeed, the raving frenzy of these radical feminists bespeaks an infernal origin. Susan Brinkmann at Women of Grace writes:

According to a report appearing on the Catholicism Pure and Simple blog, some of the youth who defended the cathedral said they had the impression that “it was a ‘satanic attack’ with ‘demonic figures’ being seen as part of an ‘anti-Christian world revolution.’  In one place the extremists lit a big fire and burned an effigy of Pope Francis as they danced around the fire.”

An “anti-Christian world revolution“?

Putas sucios comunistas! (That’s “dirty communist whores” in Spanish, at least according to the Google translation.)

    The people who defended the church are not Americans. It’s only a story if Americans believed their church to be worthy enough to go to such measures to defend.

    Homosexuals, atheists, and liberals – hate and anger is their calling card. As everyone else has so clearly identified, the source of these emotions is crystal clear.

    The vehemence with which they attack Christianity is all you need to reaffirm your belief a thousand fold.

    Orders of militant knight-clerics sprung up to defend Christians. Should it be any different today? Turn the other cheek has its time and place. But sometimes protecting the flock requires more assertive measures. This gent looks pretty content after putting godless scum to the sword.

    Some Americans do. Most of them are even Christians. *wink*

    I think it has a lot to do with how connected someone feels to their church/temple/circle/whatever. I think that big institutional churches appear more interested in putting butts in pews than any genuine mission. The church members just give a little time every week and put some cash in the offering. Easy peasy. I really don’t understand how those “megachurches” work. To me, if a normally-sighted person can’t see the pulpit clearly from the back row without a huge television screen, then it’s not really a church. It’s an entertainment palace.

    What can I say? My own practice demands personal involvement. Even without that, I’ve got a bunch of preacher ancestors who would disapprove.

    I’m not on the “left,” that is certainly the reason I disapprove. I don’t buy the absolute arguments with abortion. I really don’t think force should be the first choice in confrontations.

    Those young men protecting the Church deserve high praise. And it is no surprise that radical pro-abortionists would do such despicable things because abortion is evil–always and everywhere–and once one starts down that path it is very hard to stop. We should pray that they see the light and come to reject Satan and all his works–most especially including abortion.

    But what is most noteworthy is that Argentina has a very left wing government under Christina Kirchner. The cops did not stop the attacks not because the attackers were women but because the Argentine government is wholly sympathetic to the attackers. To leftists, “tolerance” means tolerating attacks on non-leftists.

    And America is not all that far from having similar things happening here.

    Would that the hierarchy had the same level of courage as those people. If they did, people like Kirchner would no longer be Roman Catholic. The hierarchy is naught but a bunch of poltroons.

    We’ve got a bunch Dimocraps and Rethuglicans that could stand to be former Roman Catholics as well.

    It depends on the confrontation.

    The problem I see with you is that you are ideologue and you have no intellectual flexibility. If a man invades your home and attempts murder the proper response comes from the muzzle of firearm, not hot air from your mouth.

    The same goes for confrontations between Nations or countries (they are not the same thing). There are times to talk, then there are times to hurt and kill. One must choose wisely, but one must also be able to make the right choice rather than right certain choices off by some theory that denies basic human nature. Big ‘L’ Liberatrianism is such an ideology and people instinctively know it is bankrupt because, like Liberalism, it can only exist in contradiction with basic human nature.

  30. NeoWayland

    I do believe I said “initiating force.”

    Responding to someone invading my home is not initiating force.

    Driving to the next town to blow his head off on the chance he might invade my home is certainly initiating force.

    Driving a tank through his son’s living room because his other son tried to kill me after I blew the father’s head off, that is initiating force.

    If I claimed that there was some greater moral cause that justified destroying him before any harm was done to me (by his neighbor’s sister’s cousin once removed), that would be initiating force.

    And if I did any of that, it would probably destroy everything I hold dear.

  31. NeoWayland
    December 8th, 2013 @ 3:26 pm

    Recognizing that the choice AND the consequences are mine and mine alone means I’m a rational adult.

    That’s one reason I’m a small ‘L” libertarian.

    It’s also why many folks here misunderstand my motives and reasoning.

    David Morrel (author of First Blood, which became Rambo on the big screen) toys with this idea in one of his books. I fantasize about it from time to time, being a contemporary knight. I dont have patience with the ‘political process.’ I want to gather on a battle field with other like-minded folk, rush at the enemy, and slash, thrust, bludgeon, and trample until one side breaks and runs, and the other pursues and ‘puts them to the sword.’ I was never more fond of Bush 43 as on the day he said, “Bring it on.”

    Perhaps in your own mind. I see no need for further response because you’ve said nothing I need respond to. If you want to think you’ve refuted me, then believe what you will.

    Like the typical ideologue you have a belief that you do not waver from no matter the facts of the situation.

  37. NeoWayland
    December 9th, 2013 @ 7:11 am

    You do realize that I pointed out that your assumptions about how Libertarians, libertarians, and myself would respond to force are wrong?

    It might work better if you asked questions rather than telling what me think what I am and what you think I might do. Especially when I am not what you think.

    Do you know how ironic it is for you to call me an ideologue?
