Formerly the Thinking Catholic Strategic Center
The Smoke of Satan conceals the true object of the Progressive Agenda.
This is a terrible subject to be talking about on Christmas Eve. Let me first wish you and yours a most blessed Christmas, or Christ's Mass, commemoration and celebration. May the infinite peace of the Christ Child enter your home and dwell with you and yours throughout the New Year.
You will remember Dr. Carol Byrne, a great illuminator of our day, author of The Catholic Worker Movement (1933-1980) A Critical Analysis, which inspired me to write the Catholic Communizer Dorothy Day page.
And, you might be familiar with the many comments on this site that led me to eventually write the Pope On Globalism page.
Well, Dr. Byrne has just done an exclusive interview with Cliff Kincaid, which I very strongly encourage you to read at this link: Religious Left Exposed - what is illuminated here in this interview is of vital importance to all Catholics. It ties all these seemingly disparate Left-leaning branches of the Catholic tree together, into the frightening image of a potentially Left-leaning whole tree.
You have to read the whole interview; I'm not going to reproduce it here. I will just do some pull-quotes and add a little personal commentary.
I have, most recently, been worrying almost exclusively about the state of American politics; my most recently done new page is the Proposed Constitutional Amendment page. And now, after reading this interview, I wonder how many American Bishops would lose their citizenship if that proposed Amendment were to ever be enacted. Most of them? All of them?
The New York Times reported that, upon Cardinal Timothy Dolan's recommendation, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) voted unanimously to move forward with the canonization process for the out-and-out Communist Dorothy Day. The word was unanimously. That means that there was not one single dissenting voice to be heard in the whole of the USCCB.
Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, was a Community Organizer cut from the mold of Saul Alinsky, who used the terms Organizer and Revolutionary interchangeably. An Alinskyite Community Organizer is, precisely, a Communist Revolutionary Agitator.
If you lay down with dogs, expect to get up with fleas.
We must wonder who was influencing whom.
Dorothy Day was not only a traitor to her country, she was a traitor to her Church.
The front-line grunt is fully prepared to take on the uniformed enemy before him. If he is honorable, he expects the men behind him and beside him in the ranks to also be honorable, and trustworthy. He does not expect to be bayoneted by any comrade.
The survivalist is fully prepared to confront the bear or the tiger or the wolf pack. He is less prepared to fight off the parasitic worm that gets inside and begins to slowly eat him alive.
If, like me, you are alarmed by the so-called unanimous vote of the USCCB to move on the canonization of Dorothy Day, then we are making progress here. Try to imagine the current American House of Representatives unanimously supporting John Boehner's attempted tax increase. It would never happen.
So how could the USCCB unanimously support such a monster?
It doesn't matter to me whether the prelates involved are actual revolutionaries or merely useful idiots; the effect is the same. The potential result is the destruction of the Church, from the inside.
Go read the whole interview.
You're going to have a hard time believing this.

Most of the heavy lifting
has been done, thanks to subtle work of Ms. Day and legions of others known and
unknown. The foundation has been poured,
of which the world dutily helps construct upon.
So it is dutiful and proper for the deceived to heap praise upon such
treachery, so as to further deceive the world.

People are welcome to consult Dorothy Day's papers in the Marquette University Archives and judge for themselves how "monstrous" she was. I can assure you that no unflattering evidence has been expunged from the record during the 35 years I have served as curator of the Dorothy Day-Catholic Worker Collection.

Perhaps it depends on where you look. You might find something different if you
checked the 581 page FBI dossier on the Catholic Worker Movement. You might find something different if you
checked Dr. Byrne’s solidly documented references and footnotes in her
book. Have you read the Catholic
Communizer Dorothy Day page yet? That
was my take on Dr. Byrne’s book after
checking her sources.
Marxists are liars, Phil.
That is their nature. You show me
a Marxist and I’ll show you an ends-justify-the-means
liar. If you want to know the truth
about a Marxist, don’t ask the Marxist.
If you want to know the truth about a Marxist revolutionary
organization, don’t go to the organization’s propaganda.
You’re looking for truth in all the wrong places.

I've looked at thousands of letters to and from Day and her associates, as well as her diaries and manuscripts, in the course of processing her papers, and come to a very different conclusion. The FBI agents who compiled her dossier were relying on informants, who have been known to have had axes to grind or to have been just plain mistaken.

Right. Everybody knows how notoriously unreliable
FBI investigators are. Ask any criminal or spy they ever investigated; they'll tell you.

This is an expose on Cardinal Dolan, and on "Dolanism" running rampant among Leftie-New-Age "Catholics." If ever there was evidence of Satan's presence within the Church, this is it.

Yes, I'm familiar with Michael Voris all right. He is a neo-Catholic fraud whose anti-Tradition views are bought and paid for by his SSPX-hating financier, Terry Carroll. He will never criticize the Pope, no matter how scandalous the Papacy becomes, because he thinks that every word that emerges from the Pope's mouth is of the Holy Ghost, and cannot be criticized. The mentality of his ilk is thoroughly unmasked in "The Great Facade" by Ferrara and Woods.

No, you are not familiar with Michael Voris, and your words prove it. You are either full of hyperbole, or in dire need of a laxative, one or the other.
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.

Papal Imperfection Pages.
While Popes enjoy the charism of Infallibility when teaching on faith and morals, as established in the unchanging Deposit of Faith, they remain human, and imperfect, as was Peter and the original Apostles. Popes can err when not teaching on faith and morals, and whenever speaking on matters outside the Deposit of Faith. Two of these areas, particularly troubling in these days, involve Papal favor shown to areas of Godless Marxist ideology, and to the belligerent, invasive, domineering and menacing false religion of Islam.
Who will drain the Catholic Swamp, and how, exactly? Trump is draining the Washington Swamp; what about the Catholic Swamp? Our last perfectly capable Pope abdicated for apparent political reasons, certainly not health. Was he Swamped?
Will Pope Francis become a Self Deposing Pope? "The pope himself, if notoriously guilty of heresy, would cease to be pope because he would cease to be a member of the Church."--Catholic Encyclopedia
Red Pope Francis and the KGB's Liberation Theology. The Russian KGB developed "Liberation Theology" as another path to Global Revolution. Pope Francis may be a victim of it, or, he may be a perpetrator of it.
Vatican War: Are we witnessing a Papal Melt Down? Pope Francis and the "Spirit Of Vatican II" Cardinals now openly attacking Orthodox Cardinals in the now open-to-public-view Vatican War.
On the Question of Papal Deposability. Asking whether Bishops may actually Depose a Pope for Heresy. Is there even such a thing as Papal Deposability?
Dubiosity (my word) in Francis' Papacy: The Five Dubia. Pope Francis feeds Papal Dubiosity through indecisiveness, vague language and official pronouncements left open to wildly varying interpretation.
Pope Francis and the deepening and worsening Catholic Civil War. Letter asking Pope Francis to step down: Can we really do that? Has it been done before? And is Pope Francis even Catholic?
There is No Hell, because Pope Francis said so. Right? "No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!" --Pope Francis
Popephobia: A Catholic Mental Disorder. (I think I have it.) Popephobia is related to American Obamaphobia, and German Merkelphobia. They are all closely related social disorders. (Could they be a Social WMD?)
The Blind Guides leading Western Civilization toward the pit of Human Barbarity. "Establishment" Party Members and "Establishment" USCCB Bishops are not all Evil Traitors; most of them are Deceived Blind Guides.
Unreason in the Church: Who Is Evangelizing Who? On Unreasoned Gathering with Sinners: Who is Converting Who? Is the Church committing "Merciful" Suicide?
Loosey-Goosey Theology, Wishy-Washy Leadership, and Anything Goes Culture. Pope Francis' Exhortation, Obamunist Cultural Diversity, LGBTQP+ "Sophisticated" Social Engineering, and "Whatever" Global Culture.
Why Did Vatican II Ignore Communism? The veil of mystery over the Council’s omitting any reference to Communism has gradually been lifted
I must oppose the pope on globalism, but not on faith and morals. Recent comments of the pope on globalism, calling for a world political authority, is absolutely the last thing the world needs.
The Smoke of Satan is in the Church in America; has it reached the Vatican too? The Smoke of Satan conceals the true object of the Progressive Agenda.
On the "inevitability" of a Perfect Global Government in a "New World Order". Is this "New World Order" idea divinely inspired, or is it the ongoing work of Satan?
Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, and Evangelizing for World Communism. Evangelii Gaudium started out on Catholic Evangelism, but ended up Evangelizing World Communism.
The Treacherous Global Delusions of Marxism-Leninism. Is Pope Francis a duped "Useful Idiot" of Marxism, is he Delusional, or is he actually In On It?
Musings on the deep treachery of the most trusted among us. Deep Treachery: Were they all deceiving us from the beginning, or did they somehow "turn" after being raised to positions of trust?
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?
Cliff Kincaid interviewed Vic on TV about Pope Francis and his Marxism. Addressing Marxist and Islamic ideology creeping into Catholicism.
If Francis is a Communist Pope, how does that affect Catholic Faith and Morals? Exploring the links between Comrade Obama (peace be upon him), Pope Francis and Communist Cuba.
Roman Catholic Marxism? Excuse me? Who is evangelizing whom? Roman Catholic Marxism explores the Politics of Private property v. Collective property (i.e., Marxist Redistributionism.)
On the Vague Anti Authoritarianism of Pope Francis And the Relationship between Vague Anti Authoritarianism in High Places and Moral Depravity in Culture
Do we have an anti-American Pope? A Pro-Obama, Anti-Capitalist, Redistributionist, Utopian, Pro-Illegal Alien, quite consistently Anti-American, Pope Francis?
Delusional Pope Francis, molding world culture into one undefinable hodgepodge. Does the Pope want International Communism, or just a border-less, all inclusive, nonsensical, global non-culture?
The Religion Politics Nexus: If the Religion is not true, Politics become evil. For Martin Luther, Politics drove Religion. For Pope Francis, Religion drives Politics. Or does it?
Pope Francis just said WHAT? Excuse me? Can anyone out there help me reconcile what Pope Francis just said with Catholic Revealed Truth?
Marxists running the Vatican's Pontifical Academy of Social Science? Died in the wool Marxists in the Vatican's P.A.S.S. No wonder Pope Francis favors the Socializing Frauds of "Sustainable Development", "Climate Change", etc.
Disorder and Confusion from the White House. And from the Vatican, too? The growing disorder in Obama's America, and in Pope Francis' Catholic Church.
Pope Francis receives an Open Letter calling for his Papal Resignation. "Year of Mercy" begins with an Open Letter: An Urgent Appeal to Pope Francis to Either Change Course or Renounce the Petrine Office.
Globalist Pope Francis' Marxist Program to End All Sovereign Nations. Our Globalist Pope leads the attack on all National Sovereignty to bring an end to all national borders in favor of Total Global Disorder, ostensibly for the good of the Planet and the Poor.
Looking more closely at Pope Francis' chosen Papal Pals. If a critter walks like a duck, talks like a duck and is constantly seen in the company of other ducks, the logical conclusion is that he most probably is a duck.
Globalist Stupidassism in the Vatican. Globalist Fraud after Hoax after Scam, all promoted in the Pontifical Academy of Science and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences "Workshop on Biological Extinction."
On the new (to me) heresy of Popalitry. False belief that a Pope can do no wrong leads to Pope Worship.
Do we have a Diabolically Controlled Pope? Every time he opens his mouth, he makes himself a fool.
The Dubia Aftermath shows that Pope Francis still doesn't get it. Non-response to the Dubia means a Warning; non-response to that means a second Warning, and finally, a non-Pope Council to depose the Pope.
"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
