Sorry that I did not post this last week. I should have.
POST: The Muslim religion is not a religion of peace anymore?
Terrorism needs to be pushed out of every country they try and settle into?
I cannot remember who posted that.
It has nothing to do with the Muslim religion at all.
It has to do with terrorism and groups like the Hizbullah.
I agree that terrorism has to be pushed back and that Iran is involved.
Probably too involved supplying its mid and long-range missiles to the Hisbullah.
Did you know there are other religions in Lebanon beside Muslim?
How about the Roman Catholic Church? Bet that many do not know about that either. Fact.
Here is a link that everyone will find interesting and learn of Lebanon:
I found this link amazing. So much to view and to learn about.
Old Lebanon and new.
My Uncle, Bishop Eustis John Smith, was a Franciscan Bishop in Lebanon during the 50?s and 60?s.
The US Marines first came to Lebanon to protect the US citizen?s living or working there in 1957.
There was a Catholic Mass for the US troops stationed in Lebanon. My uncle, Eustis, said that Mass. The photos of the Bishop blessing the US troops were in most major newspapers the next day.
My uncle returned in the mid 60?s to the US due to sickness.
We had a funeral Mass at Arch Street Shrine in Boston for my uncle in the early 70?s.
It was the largest funeral Mass in the Catholic Diocese since Archbishop Cushing?s funeral when he passed away in 1970. A great loss to the Boston Catholic Diocese at that time.
My uncle, Bishop Smith, was also loved by many. Both here in the US and also in Lebanon.
About 1980 or so there was a Sunoco gas station in my home town of Abington, MA that was owned by a Lebanese family. I had my automobile serviced there frequently.
One day when I was paying my bill, I asked the owner if he had ever met my uncle, Eustis John Smith, the Bishop of Lebanon?
Well the man just stared at me in disbelief and finally said yes!
He called out to his relatives working there in his Lebanonese language and four men came forward to me with all smiles and started to shake my hand while bowing to me and lowering their head. Took me totally by surprise. Was a nice time for us all.
I will never forget the reverence these men had for Bishop Smith and their Lebanese religious beliefs. Catholic. Nice day in my life that I will always remember.
