Formerly the Thinking Catholic Strategic Center
Biorseth, Sunday, July 28, 2019
I was moved by the readings and the homily in today's Latin Rite Holy Mass to write this webpage on Catholic Politics, and also another webpage describing proper American Constitutional Politics. One webpage for the secular Civil Law, and the other for the religious Christian Law. The Mass readings were from Romans 6:19-23, and the Gospel reading of Matt 7:15-21.
First, from the Epistle to the Romans:
Second, from the Gospel according to Matthew:
There is no such thing as "Liberal" Catholicism, or "Traditional" Catholicism; there is only Roman Catholicism. One is either fully Catholic, or not Catholic at all. You can't take part of it blended with anything else. It's a whole enchilada thing.
We profess in our Creed that there is One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. And only One.
I submit that there is one and only one Divine Revelation of God, by God, to man, and that it does not change. The Revelation is Permanent. It is Revealed Truth, protected in the Sacred Deposit of Faith.
It is summarized in the Creed, every element of which is Dogma. The Christian Law is summarized in the Ten Commandments, and laid out in detail in the Revealed Doctrines. The Bible itself was collected from the Revelation.
Popes and Bishops come and go, but the original Revelation remains, unchanged by mortal men.
It is the primary responsibility of the Pope and the Bishops in union with the Pope to protect the Sacred Deposit of Faith, keep it undefiled and unchanged, and to teach and preach from it to the whole world.
Look at their fruit.
In your diocese or archdiocese, do you see any "gay" Parishes, any rainbow-flags or rainbow-decorated vestments, or any super-inclusive, non-judgmental, homo-friendly clerics?
Do you see any clerics seemingly more interested in Marxist leaning "social justice" political issues than unvarnished Catholic Truth?
How about preaching or teaching "progressive" one-world government or New World Order, and more than one path to heaven?
Do you see Parishes shrinking or growing; being shut down, or being built; pushing Catholic large-T Tradition or opposing it?
Do you see clerics being defrocked and/or imprisoned and lawsuits being settled at the expense of your collection baskets?
Let's just make it as simple as we can make it.
There is one question that would settle the whole question of whether any Catholic cleric is bearing rotten fruit or good fruit. It is a question that can be applied to the Pope, every Bishop, every Priest and every Deacon.
Do they believe, and do they teach, the very first Dogma of Catholicism, which is,
I submit that if they do not believe that, then they are not Catholic.
If they teach or preach contrary to it, then they are heretics. One cannot be a heretic and a Catholic at the same time. A heretic is self-excommunicated by the very act of heresy.
It is time to end the era of "progressive" super-inclusiveness inside the Catholic Church. The Church is supposed to preach the Gospel to the world, to bring repentant sinners into the Church; not bring the World (ruled by Satan) into the Church, and then preach to it. Catholics are supposed to stay apart from sin and from sinners, not join with them and tacitly approve their sin.
Let the formal excommunications begin.
And let recognition of the self-excommunications dawn.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12
Seek the Truth; Find the Way; Live the Life.
Please God, and Live Forever.

Thank you, Vic.
There is only one Church, one mystical Body of Christ.
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; Matt 7:13-15
"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
