In 2010, Archbishop Luigi Padovese had his head cut off by a Muslim Fundamentalist fanatic yelling the Takbir - Allahu Akbar.
The Archbishop was stabbed in the chest 8 times and ran off, trying to save his life, but he was again seized and his head cut off by the murderer, left only hanging on one side by a piece of flesh.
It is typical of the hypocrisy of many Western media that in articles about the incident they do not mention that the Archbishop’s head was cut off.
Archbishop Luigi Padovese (b. Milan 31 March 1947-d. Iskenderun 3 June 2010) was the titular Bishop of Monteverde and the Vicar Apostolic of Anatolia in Turkey.
The history of Austro-Turkish relations has been a long one in which the Muslim Turks of the Ottoman Empire were continuously seeking to invade and conquer Catholic Austria.
BZO Deputy Herr Ewald Stadler, took the opportunity of the Ambassador's speech to remind him of the recent Islamic murder of Archbishop Padovese, doing so in no uncertain terms and, in the process, taking a well-earned side-swipe at the cultural Marxists of the Austrian Left who were only too happy to see a Catholic archbishop murdered.
Herr Stadler took them to task for their lying, hypocritical dishonesty in claiming to promote human rights and religious freedom, neither of which values are, or ever have been, genuinely supported by the cultural Marxists who are busily trying to wreck the Western society which has given them everything they have.
Ironically, it will be the secular humanist atheists and cultural Marxists who will be the first to be mutilated and beheaded by Islamic fundamentalists if Islam should ever come to power in any of the Western countries where these loathsome and hypocritical secularist parasites currently proliferate.
Let us pray for the repose of the soul of his Grace Archbishop Luigi Padovese.
Requiem aeturnam, dona ei, Domine...
