Catholic Writer Hits “Crony Catholicism”
Posted By Cliff Kincaid On November 23, 2015 @ 1:48 am In AIM Column | 1 Comment
Catholic writer Vic Biorseth has coined the term “Crony Catholicism” to describe how the American branch of the Roman Catholic Church has been working hand-in-glove with the Obama administration, even assisting in what he calls “the advance of Islam in America at the expense of Christianity.” Biorseth is among a growing group of American Catholics who have become disillusioned with the liberal trends in the church and have turned to the use of new media, including blogs, to sound the alarm.
A self-described “old time Catholic” stirred to a major renewal in faith by the anti-communist Pope John Paul II, Biorseth was rejected for the local Diaconate for being “too rigid” in his religious views. He has written a book, Culture = Religion and Politics: Who Are We? , describing the decline of America and how the country can be saved from the Marxist, atheist and Islamic forces trying to destroy it. He dedicates the book to the truth, his wife, and “to the America that was, and that can be again.”
The book looks at the history of America and the West and argues that our success as a nation has been based on Judeo-Christian values, now under sustained assault by the President of the United States, referred to as “Comrade Obama, peace be upon him.” The phrase “peace be upon him” is an Arabic phrase often used to refer to a prophet of Islam. Alluding to Obama’s Marxist tendencies, Biorseth also refers to the President’s approach as “Obamunism.”
In terms of the presidential race, Biorseth praises GOP candidate Donald Trump for making illegal immigration a major national issue and declares, “I don’t like him, but I love what he is doing. He is taking on and doing damage to two exceptionally destructive movements in America: 1. The political correctness movement. 2. The mainstream news media.”
In a list of recommendations for saving America, he calls for “taking down the news media” and opening up new lines of communication for private citizens that include “free, open and unlimited publishing and broadcasting of ideas and opposing arguments…” Indeed, his book, which is self-published through CreateSpace , an Amazon company, is an example of how ordinary citizens are taking matters into their own hands.
Going further, he says, “Remove the press and all press space, facilities and equipment from the White House, the Capitol Building and all other government facilities…Eliminate all existing press passes and credentials allowing special access to government facilities and personnel. The press is to be no more free and no more restricted in government access than any other private citizen.”
He doesn’t spare his own church from scrutiny, exposing what he calls Marxist and homosexual elements on the verge of becoming a “controlling force,” even in the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. An avid listener to Rush Limbaugh’s radio show, Biorseth credits the national conservative radio host for covering significant stories ignored by the liberal media, including the recent reports that a secret cabal of Cardinals had forced Pope Benedict to resign, in order to make the leftist Francis the pope.
He faults Francis, during his address to Congress, for citing Dorothy Day among four historical American figures. Biorseth calls her a “Catholic Communizer” who did not belong in the company of figures like Abraham Lincoln. He says Francis, in his remarks, also seemed to favor Obama’s immigration program that is designed to help the “Marxocrat Party” and diminish American sovereignty over its own borders.
What he found most appalling about the address, Biorseth says, was what Francis did not say. He says Francis did not address the “Culture of Death” of abortion and sexual perversion that has been given a stamp of approval by members of the U.S. Supreme Court and others who were in his audience.
At his “Catholic American Thinker” website , referring to our latest blockbuster revelations  about how the Obama administration is funding the pro-Muslim immigration programs of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Biorseth writes , “Could you ever imagine that Catholic Bishops would ever bring in illegal Moslems while closing Catholic Parishes? Well, you don’t have to imagine it.” He notes the evidence in our column of how Catholic Churches are closing, mostly across the Northeast, while the Bishops are getting federal funds to settle Muslims from the Middle East in American communities.
Citing one dramatic example, he notes how Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church in Syracuse, New York, was closed down, and then leased to an Islamic society which renamed it “Mosque of Jesus the Son of Mary,” or Masjit Isa Ibn Maryam . Biorseth comments, “All the crosses were replaced with copper crescent moons, in favor of the moon Mohammed worshiped before he invented Islam.”
Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Syracuse had been built  by German immigrants 100 years ago. The church was closed in 2010 and taken over by a Muslim group, which removed six crosses from the steeples in order to turn it into a mosque.
Answering the question in the title, “Who are we?” Biorseth answers,
“We are a Christian nation, from our birth.” In order to save the
country, he advises, “Get off the couch. This ain’t no pleasure
cruise…You make culture. You are the root of culture…Lead the way. Show
others how to do it. Show others who we are. Restore Western
civilization. That is your calling, and you are the only one who can do

Vic, Nice job on the book and the review.
I would like to recommend a trilogy (and anything else) by the late Michael Davies: the Liturgical Revolution (Cranmer's Godly Order, Pope John's Council, and Pope Paul's Mass) Published in 1980. This series explains the history of the English reformation, Vatican Council II, and the "novus ordo" Mass. It is clear that we faithful and practicing Catholics have been abused, and the plan is to continue the abuse on into the future.
Vic, keep up the diligence in both your thinking and your scholarship that you share on your blog -- you are needed, especially now.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport. Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matthew 7:13–15
The Purpose of this grouping of articles is to highlight the three incompatible geopolitical movements in global contention: American Constitutionalism, Marxism and Islam. And to give evidence to the insidious infiltration of Marxist and Islamic thought, and corrosive evil, into American Culture.
A fixed social moral code, born of religion, is what makes a unique, identifiable People, distinct from other Peoples. Distinct People of a common moral code make civil laws representing and reinforcing their common moral code, via Politics. When a distinctly moral People live within a distinct Political organization they form a distinct and identifiable Human Culture.
Truth is the only thing we can Unite on. Yet Real Truth Divides.
Truth Divides, because Truth Hurts. Any "Truth" that indiscriminately Unites is a False Truth.
Broken Communion with God ultimately causes the broken human community. Man is a social being, in need of community with others. Broken Communion is an unnatural disorder for man.
Examining the Religion component in Culture=Religion+Politics. I submit that Religion is the most important factor in the making of Culture.
Examining the Politics component in Culture=Religion+Politics. Politics: Establishing and Modifying Civil Law and Government for a Distinct Culture.
Culture: The Final Product of the formula Culture=Religion+Politics. Comparing Major Contemporary Human Cultures: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
On entering (or avoiding) the Catholic American Discomfort Zone. Let's not talk about Religion or Politics today; it's confrontational and uncomfortable. Let's avoid the Discomfort Zone.
Unique, Distinct, Identifiable Human Culture = Religion + Politics. The Formula [Culture = Religion + Politics] is what makes a distinct, identifiable People a distinct and identifiable People.
The Formula [Culture=Religion+Politics] is Inviolate. Politics merely organize Human Culture around the predominant Religious beliefs of a distinct and identifiable People.
Whether the result means death or rebirth, the American Reset will be painful. America was born in Revolution. If the reset means rebirth, it will only come through re-revolution.
On the Coming Total Global Reset. This Global Reset will touch every aspect of human life, and nothing will be the same again.
America's Extra-Constitutional Self Destructive Politics: Civilization's Doom. How all of our Presidential Candidates build up and support America's Self Destructive Politics.
The Pre-Ordained Club Candidates of Both Parties. The Party Proposes; the Club Disposes; The Media Clears The Way.
The Washington DC economy of bureaucracy is booming amid national depression. While the nation suffers economic depression, the local Washington-New York economy of bureaucracy roars on.
It ain't raining cats and dogs around here; it's raining stupidity. You've heard of trickle-down economics? Well, this is pouring down stupidassery.
[Culture = Religion + Politics] is the inviolate formula of Civilization itself. Culture = Religion + Politics makes a unique, distinct, identifiable People. Take Religion (and religious morality) out of it, and the Culture disintegrates.
Culture=Religion+Politics: The Book. Culture = Religion + Politics is now published and available.
A Lay Catholic American view of the Great American Decline. How and why America is going down as Marxism and Islam rise.
Cultural Restoration, or Destruction, is upon America. One or the other. If the American Nation is destroyed, an American Remnant will restore the American Idea, somewhere.
Awakening to the possibility of taking down the media. Have Republicrat Candidates begun the process of actually taking down the media, or are they just making temporary political points?
The Crudification of Catholicism, general Christianity, and American Culture. "Crudification" is a Vic-ism denoting the process of becoming a crude and vulgar people.
[Culture=Religion+Politics] Book, Reviewed by Accuracy In Media (AIM). Cliff Kincaid reviews our latest book, and this site.
Crony-Catholicism? Really? The USCCB is advancing Obamunism? Say it ain't so, Joe! It's bad enough that we now have so many Marxified Bishops, but now they actually act against the faith?
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator's supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights." --Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others." --St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
