I’ve heard this nonsense almost verbatim from the satanist classes from atheists to pedophiles to freemasons et al for seemingly years now. I post something Catholic and like moths to flame or richard dawkins to a daycare center, people WAIL and GNASH their teeth that I must report to some tyrannical nomenclatura within The Church who will execute me for the crime of being Catholic?
What are they trying to say? Seemingly with unspoken demands that no Priest or above would EVER be caught dead being actually Catholic and that Catholicism is punished severely with death within The Church. While this is how atheist communities work, they don’t seem to know much of anything let along what being Catholic is at all let alone what Catholicism is.
I don’t think they realize just how little of The Church they think they can corrupt; no matter how much they think they’ve infiltrated.
So, imagine this. I get a message a message from an atheist who has a strange per-occupation with children. None other than the apparently freemason arkenaten. Another creature gets very angry at my posts and follows me to my blog from my comments, none other than “professor taboo.” An old hippie who appears to have yet to miss a single minute of cnn programming, and who has yet to even question a single thing he has heard on there. Going by their blog, they have almost a bigger masonic obsession with “ancient egypt” than “ark” does.
Imagine if you will, then, that in the course of these human events I reply to his comments on my blog and thoroughly so. I begin with a quote from Venerable Fulton Sheen about why evil men like him lie about The Church:
“If some of us who are blessed with its sacred privileges believed the same things about the Church that her slanderers believe, if we knew her only through the words of traitors or third-rate lies of dishonest historians, if we understood her only through those who were never cradled in her sacred associations, we would perhaps hate the Church just as much as they do. The bitterest enemies of the Church, those who accuse her of being unpatriotic, as Christ was accused of being before Pilate; of being unworldly, as Christ was accused of being before Herod; of being too dogmatic, as Christ was accused of being before Caiaphas; or being too undogmatic, as Christ was accused of being Annas; of being possessed by the devil, as Christ was accused of being before the Pharisees — these do not really hate the Church. They cannot hate the Church any more than they can hate Christ; they hate only that which they mistakenly believe to be the Catholic Church, and their hate is but their vain attempt to ignore. Charity, then, must be shown to persons, and particularly to those outside the fold who by charity must be led back, that there may be one fold and one Shepherd.”
Which he proceeded to prove correctly. I then follow with another quote, same author:
“But it is anything but progress to act like mice and eat the foundations of the very roof over our heads. Intolerance about principles is the foundation of growth, and the mathematician who would deride a square for always having four sides, and in the name of progress would encourage it to throw away even only one of its sides, would soon discover that he had lost all his squares. So too with the dogmas of the Church, of science, and of reason; they are like bricks, solid things with which a man can build, not like straw, which is “religious experience,” fit only for burning.
A dogma, then, is the necessary consequence of the intolerance of first principles, and that science or that church which has the greatest amount of dogmas is the science or the church that has been doing the most thinking. The Catholic Church, the schoolmaster for twenty centuries, has been doing a tremendous amount of solid, hard thinking and hence has built up dogmas as a man might build a house of brick but grounded on a rock. She has seen the centuries with their passing enthusiasms and momentary loyalties pass before her, making the same mistakes, cultivating the same poses, falling into the same mental snares, so that she has become very patient and kind to the erring pupils, but very intolerant and severe concerning the false. She has been and she will always be intolerant so far as the rights of God are concerned, for heresy, error, untruth, affect not personal matters on which she may yield, but a Divine Right in which there is no yielding. Meek she is to the erring, but violent to the error. The truth is divine; the heretic is human. Due reparation made, she will admit the heretic back into the treasury of her souls, but never the heresy into the treasury of her wisdom. Right is right if nobody is right, and wrong is wrong if everybody is wrong. And in this day and age we need, as Mr. Chesterton tells us, “not a Church that is right when the world is right, but a Church that is right when the world is wrong.””
If it wasn’t bad enough that I post about The Intellectual Tradition of The Church, I even post two Prayers! In Latin!
Sáncte Míchael Archángele,
defénde nos in proélio,
cóntra nequítiam et insídias diáboli ésto præsídium.
Ímperet ílli Déus,
tuque, prínceps milítiæ cæléstis,
sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos,
qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in múndo,
in inférnum detrúde.
Crux Sacra Sit Mihi Lux
Non Draco Sit Mihi Dux
Sunt Mala Quae Libas
Ipse Venena Biba!
Vade Retro satana
Nunquam Suade Mihi Vana
So far I have spoken about people who lie about The Church, about how The Church is The Greatest of all Teachers, and then PRAY IN LATIN! Truly such heresy must be reported to the Local Ordinary (a position “taboo” doesn’t even know exists) at once! No, wait I must be reported to my local Parish Priest and to even a Cardinal (because this is apparently what vatican 2 taught him, right?) and then TO THE POPE, for… some reason, as if they didn’t have anything better to do.
this “man” is worse than an idiot, he’s a double-idiot. Maybe even triple!
So what’s the point here? “Where’s the beef?,” to put this in parlance even a surface-level boomer could understand.
What’s the Pope going to do? If the Pope ceases to be Catholic, he ceases to be Pope. Same down to even the smallest of the Laity. So if you disagree with Fundamentally Catholic things, then you aren’t Catholic.
The Church IS NOT A WORLDLY ORGANIZATION. Even if “Popes” to “Parish Priest, Diocesan Bishop (why not other Bishops?), Archbishops (why mention Bishops twice?), or Cardinal (what the hell do Cardinals have to do with any of this?)” are all theiving, satanic analrapists like taboo, then that doesn’t say anything about what it means to Be Catholic it just means those Religious mentioned aren’t Catholic.
Like Venerable Fulton Sheen said:
“Moral Principles do not rely on a majority vote. What is Right is Right even if no one is right, What is wrong is wrong even if everyone is wrong.”
So if there are any Religious who disagree with me, if even every single Religious was compromised, then fuck them. They’ve got more to worry about with God sending them straight to hell for leading souls astray then for me being actually Catholic.
