Actually, what happens is not that the principle of anathema is anathematized, but that it is reversed. The old anathematize-ee becomes the new anathematize-er. We have said, many times and in many ways, that if the people on a bus ever allow Satan to get on the bus with them, he will eventually wind up driving the bus. If you, as an individual, do not control sin, sin will eventually control you. If we, as a people, fail to anathematize clear evil, eventually, clear evil with anathematize us, and our way of life.
Let's look at what Scripture, authored by the Church, says about it:
Strong words. Quite clear. Unmistakable.
And we see today that we have "ravening wolves" and "false prophets" among our Bishops and Cardinals, drawing disciples to themselves, away from the true doctrines of the Church. Beginning with the "Bishop's Revolt" against Humanae Vitae in 1968, the revolution within the Church has hit a point today where a majority of Bishops no longer believe, follow or teach the unvarnished, unmodified pure doctrines of the Church to their Particular Churches.
These are sons of perdition wearing red caps, purple caps and Roman collars, exemplified and perhaps led by the likes of Cardinals Dolan, Wuerl and Casper. They no longer hold the Catholic faith. Beginning with all the many, many sins of sexual impurity, the massive practice of which were all super-charged by Catholic Bishop's refusal to continue the doctrinal condemnation of artificial contraception, spread out to infect every other area of moral teaching.
Through these men, Satan strikes at the normative family unit.
At the ongoing Extraordinary Synod on the Family in Rome, we are seeing gross examples of the evil of some of these Bishops, who are keeping their conference private and closed to the public. They are keeping the details secret from the people, with no names attached to whatever comes out in public, because so much of it simply cannot stand the light of day. At least they still know shame, for they are too ashamed of what they say to allow it to be publicized with their names attached to it.
An unnamed "Vatican Official" spoke only off camera to ChurchMilitant.TV about the "good points" of adulterous couples, fornicating (cohabiting) couples, homsexual couples, etc. He asked rhetorically if they found no good points in the life of two people living an objectively evil, yet loving, sacrificial relationship. The answer was "Not if they go to hell", to which he retorted "The Church doesn't teach that they are going to hell."
The hell it doesn't. That's a lie.
That's what the Church's own Scripture says about it. Now where, exactly, does the Church teach that two people living in an objectively evil relationship will not go to hell?
Men who say these things are liars and deceivers, regardless of what color cap they wear, regardless of any collar, vestment or religious garb they wear, regardless of any winning beatific smile they show the public, regardless of their smooth tongues and persuasive ways.
They are blind guides, and worse; they are evil. For they strike at the heart and soul of the family as a unit. They strike at children, fidelity and indissolubility - the three goods of marriage, which forms the family, which forms the culture. They act to bring Christian culture down, through the destruction of marriage and the normative, natural family.
They are, in a word, disgusting. They should be anathematized.
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Catholic luminaries no less than John Paul II and Bennedict XVI have said that we cannot know if even Judas Iscariot is in Hell, so how can you be so certain of your position?

I can imagine contextual scenarios in which they might have said such a thing. However, we have the words of Jeus Christ, the Lord thy God, to consider, when he said that it would have been better for Judas if he had never been born. (Matt 26:24; Mark 14:21.)
Taken with the many places in which He said such things as describing the path to heaven as narrow and difficult, and the path to hell as wide and easy; many are called but few are chosen; etc., the indication from His words are that there are more in hell than in heaven.
It is quite easy to go to hell. It is quite difficult to go to heaven.

Does the Church still lead the way?
Take careful note of what is happening in American political action, legal action, celebrity action and even pseudo-scientific action today. Catholic and other Christian anathematize-ers and anathematize-ees are reversing roles, With the courts, politicians, celebrities and pseudo-scientists now publicly, popularly and even legally anathematizing Christian practice. Simple minded (or evil minded) God Deniers (practitioners of Scientism) are now attacking us as "science deniers". The cultural drift away from God is a drift away from reality.
The cultural drift begins, and may even be led by weakened preaching, including that of many princes of the Church. Watch the video.
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.
