"It's not bad enough that the deranged wing of the Mahometan persuasion wants to blow you up," but we learn at The Inn at the End of the World
that "the City of Boston would also like to make sure that you leave this earth without the sacraments" — No Priests Allowed
. From the article quoted:
When the priests at St. Clement's, three blocks away, heard the explosions, they gathered sacramental oils and hurried to the scene in hopes of anointing the injured and, if necessary, administering last rites, the final of seven Catholic sacraments. But the priests, who belong to the order Oblates of the Virgin Mary, weren't allowed at the scene.... [I]t is a poignant irony that Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy who died on Boylston Street, was a Catholic who had received his first Communion just last year. As Martin lay dying, priests were only yards away, beyond the police tape, unable to reach him to administer last rites.
Also worse than the bombings, and I am ashamed I am so late to join in saying it, is, as Lew Rockwell
pointed out a week ago, the fact that "[t]he empire has invaded the homeland--the chickens have come home to roost, as Malcolm X put it--with more than a million people ordered to cower in their homes" — SWAT Army Occupies Boston
. "Businesses, schools, universities, public transport are all ordered to close. All homes and other property can be searched without warrants."
