Both John Paul The Great, as Cardinal Wojtyla, and Benedict XVI, as Cardinal Ratzinger, attended and participated in Vatican II. How could such good and holy men not revolt and oppose the budding councilliar acceptance, if not blessing, of the world conquering "religion" of Islam, and not even comment on the council's failure to condemn or even mention the the world conquering ideology of atheistic communism?
And they were not alone in this; where were all the other Bishops?
Were they all just going-with-the-flow, avoiding conflict, going along to get along, or, were they all in on it? In retrospect, VII seemed to be trying to reconcile all differences and bring everyone on earth together - the good and the evil.
And isn't that what Francis is now doing, only a lot more openly?
We loved Cardinal Ratzinger and we celebrated the pontificate of John Paul the Great because we saw them as champions of the original faith standing tall against the tides of "Liberalism" in the Church. The whole reason we embraced the new Catechism and bought copies for everyone we knew at the time was because of John Paul's statement on The Doctrinal Value Of The Text, published at the front of it.
In that statement, John Paul invoked his Apostolic Authority and solemnly declared the new Catechism to be "a sure norm for the teaching of faith and a legitimate instrument for ecclesial communion".
Now, all these years later, we are made aware of some of the most serious errors of Vatican II that are contained in this Catechism.
How do we get out of this? How do you "undo" an ecumenical council? How do you abrogate a papal statement made under his papal apostolic authority?
Again, John Paul and Benedict were not alone in this; where were all the other Bishops?
They all had to know about the evil goings-on of the evil Cardinal McCarrick. They all had to know about Paul VI's inclusion of the condemned heresy of Protestantism into the New Mass.
How could they not know?
Were they all moved by the current "popular" trends? We have heard multiple high ranking clerics speak of how the Church has to catch up with the times and how doctrine has to evolve to meet the current social conditions. But we all know that's wrong. The current social order has to conform to the doctrine; the doctrine doesn't conform to the culture.
We hear the same nonsense in American politics, where politicians declare that the constitution is a living, breathing, constantly evolving document, written for a bygone era but not literally binding on the current, more enlightened, scientific and modern population.
Populism does not trump Truth, which does not change.
Reality is permanent.
There is no such thing as evolution. In this world there is only devolution.
Satan's servant, Karl Marx, knew that democracy, or populism, was the sure path to the conquest of any and all nations. And that he could make anything "popular". Anything at all. And if it is the popular thing to do, the masses of people will generally do it.
Popular democracy became Marxism's most valuable weapon.
One way to make anything popular is to present it is as popular through popular entertainment. (Cultural Marxism owns popular entertainment.)
Another way to make anything popular is to report positively about it in the news. (Cultural Marxism owns world news media.)
Another way to make anything popular is to teach it in schools. Little children will believe anything their teachers teach them. (Cultural Marxism owns academia and all formal education.)
It's time to wake up and smell the incense.

We've all got to open our eyes to the reality before us, and bow to it.
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.

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
