Whenever your mouse passes over or pauses on the sarcastic-editorial abbreviation IYI19 , anywhere in the Catholic American Thinker website, the words Intellectual Yet Idiotic should appear in a little pop-up text box, so you don't need to actually click on it every time just to see what it means. Just put your mouse on it without clicking, and look at the text box. (Use your browser's Back button to return.)
"Intellectual Yet Idiotic" in an idiomatic reference to those individuals who may be recognized as among the elite in their fields of expertise, or even among the elite in a broad range of human knowledge, yet who nevertheless will doggedly hold fast to provably false and even stupid beliefs. Examples:
Intellectual Catholics who hold that the Holy Family (Jesus, Joseph and Mary) were poor. They were not poor. They were a skilled-trade family.
Intellectuals who hold that the Holy Family was homeless, because of the Nativity story in Bethlehem. They were not homeless. They were traveling, from their home in Nazareth, to participate in a census.
"Scientists" who hold fast to the original fundamental Darwinian theory that species came to be GESGOEAEOT2 , despite lack of empirical evidence, and in spite of existing contradicting evidences.
"Scientists" who hold fast to the newer radical mass-mutation Darwinian theory of PEWAG3 , again, despite lack of empirical evidence, and in spite of existing contradicting evidences.
These are really not scientists, but practitioners of the pseudo-religion of Scientism, with disciples and devotees in Politics, Journalism and High Society, all holding to such nonsensical notions as,
And the list goes on from there.
All of this idiocy springs from the truly idiotic yet broadly accepted theory that HBAACOTE11 , and that the only possibly salvation for mankind, other than colonizing some other planet, is to be found in the whole world submitting itself to WBESSWG17 .
Do you begin to smell the Marxism behind all this intellectual idiocy?

You wrote that some Intellectual Catholics hold that the Holy Family (Jesus, Joseph and Mary) were poor. You suggest that these intellectuals are wrong. You say, "They were not poor. They were a skilled-trade family." And beyond that, it might be argued that several (three) men who traveled maybe 1000 miles to worship the new King and bring Him Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh probably brought not a little and maybe brought a lot. "Here, kid king, here's a pinch of gold dust. Be good now." Not likely.
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

"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
