Formerly the Thinking Catholic Strategic Center

As a contributor and participant wannabe, I went looking for a Cincinnati Archdiocese "Cell" of the new and building Church Militant Resistance Movement, and I didn't find one. If there is one, it's hiding. Can't find it on Google, Facebook or Twitter. I'm not real astute with social media, but even with my limited talents, that's a pretty specific thing to search for.
I can't believe there isn't at least one Resistance Cell somewhere in this vast archdiocese.
If you have one, are a member of one or know about one, I hope you will clue me in on it. Or, perhaps, you might be moved to start one. I live in the Dayton area, and would be most interested in places I could get to quickly in evenings after work.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, go to ChurchMilitant Resistance as a beginning point. Scroll down to the DISCOVER MORE ABOUT RESISTANCE: area, and you can click on the Organizational Email Archives, and / or the Video Archives, which also contain the podcast recordings. You will see a link for Laity, and one for Priests and Seminarians.
What this area needs is an "Organizer" member, to get things rolling and start a cell. (Assuming one does not already exist.)
This is not for "Socializing", per se, although you can hardly do this without socializing. It's for prayer, commitment and dedication to Truth. It's about learning about our faith, so that we recognize error when and where we encounter it, and properly challenge it with Truth.
Cells are recommended to meet periodically somewhere, usually but not necessarily rotating at member homes, for snacks and coffee, prayer and learning. If you go through the first video, Michael Voris recommends playing a Catholic educational video during the meeting, starting with perhaps the first three Armor Of God videos. There are a blue million other Catholic educational videos out there for precisely this purpose.
It's philosophical without getting deep into philosophy; it gives us the background, deep understanding we need to know our faith, and we need to know it before we can properly defend it. It would be best, if the group is bigger than can fit around one little laptop screen, if someone has a big screen and the ability to link to from their computer and play the videos so everybody can see them.
That's the beginning; meeting, prayer, and learning. Action comes later. First, we need to put on the armor and train. Anyone can do this, male, female, young or old. "Organizers" should be adults who are already pretty well formed Catholics, but new Catholics and even Catechumens could gain a lot from this kind of communal prayer and deep faith learning.
So ... Is there a Cell out there somewhere?
Would you like to start one?
Let us know about it; there are probably plenty of old-time-religion Catholics out there who would would really like to get in on this.

I would love to be in a group like that. There is a group leader through Church MIlitant I have his name.
If you would contact me that would be wonderful you have my email address now.
May God bless and Our Lady and St. Michael guide and protect!

You would think that this has the potential of the Tea Party, and it follows that all Catholic Tea Party proactives would be very attracted to it.

I submitted a message to you on facebook. I saw this notice about your identity theft after the fact. Someone is still stealing your identity and they have some info I would rather they didn't.

Sorry to take so long in responding. With some difficulty, as it turns out due to my FaceBook unfamiliarity, I found your comment. It did indeed come to me. I just don't get on FaceBook that much, other than to link it to new webpages as I write them on this site. Other than from people I actually know, I never look at comments on FaceBook or engage in discussions there. I just don't trust it any more. "Friends" who say something to me on FaceBook trigger email notifications, so I can see what they said pretty quick. But to just get into FaceBook and look for comments from people, takes me a whole lot of time, because I never remember how to find and get into comments. I'm getting old, you know.
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.

Church Militant Resistance Movement Pages.
This is a bottom-up guerrilla movement to resist error and heresy inside the Catholic Church, and to apply pressure to restore authentic Magisterial Teaching to its proper place. Note that faithful Catholic Tea Party-ers should be attracted to this movement. (Note also that our original opposition to Trump has turned 180% through his Presidential campaign, inauguration and actions, based purely on direction, honesty, action and performance in office. We wish we could say the same about a lot of Bishops.)
Church Militant Resistance Cincinnati/Covington, Call To Arms. Fr. James Martin S.J., who proudly advances the Rainbow Flag of Sodom, is coming to speak in our Archdiocese as if he represented true Catholic doctrine, which he opposes.
Eucharist Rising: Restoring Eucharist to the Center of Catholicism. If we are not a Eucharistic People, are we still Catholic? Restoring Eucharist to the Central Place of Honor, and turning Priests to Ad Orientum, will inevitably lead to Eucharist Rising in the hearts and minds of the Faithful.
Creation v. Scientism: Creation Science v Darwinist Scientism. At this point in history, it is quite evident that Darwinism is scientifically disproved. Yet, the "Scientific" world embraces Darwinism and disclaims Biblical Creation. So, Creation v Scientism pits TWO faith-based belief systems against each other. ONE is right.
Allegiance to the Flag and Allegiance to God are two different things. National Allegiance is not Nation Worship. Only the Godless and the Ungodly "worship" a nation or a political ideology, such as any variant form of Marxism.
An American Resistance Counter-Revolutionary Movement. America needs a Political Movement mirroring Michael Voris' Catholic Resistance! Movement. American Resistance would counter our Multiculture and return to identifiable American Culture.
Southwest Ohio Resistance Group looking for a few good Catholics. I can't believe I'm the only "Resistance Group" guy in the whole Dayton area ready to draw my Catholic sword and advance on the enemy. Are the only strong Catholics around here all way south of town?
Join the Catholic Resistance, and wage Guerilla warfare against Evil. Catholic Resistance to Evil means personal sacrifice. It means continually evangelizing, even when and where evangelization is not welcome.
Catholic Resistance: Church Militant's Grass Roots Movement. We've got to start somewhere. Join the Resistance, form your local units and lets get it on.
Church Militant Resistance Movement: Will you join it? For once, a "Resistance" Grass-Roots Movement that is for Culture and not against it; for Magisterial Teaching, and against Error. (And isn't that already Counter-Cultural?)
"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
