And we've been doing it from the beginning. That means championing Divisiveness over evil "Inclusiveness" and evil "Non-Judgmental-ism". That's what we do here. Following the formula
We recognize the simple fact that both religions and political organizations, i.e., governments, have rules, limitations, boundaries and borders, which must be carefully maintained unless and until a religion or a nation stops existing. In which case, the culture itself stops existing, as a definable, recognizable culture.
The most religiously destructive, politically destructive and culturally destructive thing a Christian American citizen can say is "Never talk about religion or politics in social gatherings". Religion and politics should be the first things any of us want to talk about, because we need to talk about them, always. Nothing else is as important in social discourse; everything else ranges between secondary and superfluous.
This is the evil taboo that seduces and induces us all into a gradual, overly polite acceptance of un-resisted and uncorrected evil in our midst, and the growth of the sin of Indifference in our whole culture. Until Indifference itself becomes a defining characteristic of our whole culture. Who are we to judge?
It is this evil (and stupid) gradual social acceptance of Indifference that induces parents to "Let the children make up their own minds about their religious beliefs", to the destruction of Domestic Church, which is the Church of the Family. As the Family is the primal and foundational building block of a society, so the Family is the primal and foundational building block of the Parish.
As the Family goes, so goes the larger Parish, and, as the Family goes, so goes the larger Culture.
America was born a Christian nation, as pointed out in Breaking Secularism and elsewhere herein, and American religion drove American politics. Because of that simple fact, the American rise to greatness among nations was nothing less than meteoric.
Now, led by the advances of Cultural Marxism in America, American politics - now infected with Marxist ideology - is driving religion. Because of that simple fact, the American fall to mediocrity and eventual Constitutional death is, again, nothing less than meteoric.
While Cultural Marxism is driving American religion out of the public square and out of even having any legal public voice, it is also attacking Christianity itself, from within, as shown in the treatment of The Catholic Spring. Marxist ideology is doing to Christianity the same thing it is doing to America, and all other nations. If you want to seek the beginning point of Marxism's infiltration into Catholicism, you might begin with Why Vatican II didn't condemn Communism. You can see how it has possibly infected the thought, however slightly, of some of our best and brightest Popes in Benedict XVI onl Globalism, and in the rest of the Papal Imperfections pages. (Note that Globalism, or Global Government, is Politics, and not a matter of Revealed Faith and Morals.)
Marxism, like Islam, stands opposed to everything America stands for, and everything Christianity stands for, and Marxism is on the rise here, due mostly if not solely to our own ever-growing Inclusiveness, Non-judgmental-ism and Indifference. (All induced by the super-permissive, allowed advance of Cultural Marxism.)
Let's just keep it simple, going back to basics, and define America's religious and political points of reference, as compared to what Cultural Marxism (the Marxocrat Party, the Media, Academia, Entertainment and the new anti-science quasi-religion of Scientism) says about them.
A parallel comparison of Christian rights and Constitutional rights:
Christianity further established "Non-Negotiable" prohibitions against artificial contraception, illicit sex in any form, sterile sex in any form including homosexuality and other sexual perversions, abortion, euthanasia, human eugenics and cloning, and everything that prohibits legitimate human procreation and thus produces a culture of death. All of these things operate to the destruction of Sacramental Marriage and the safeguarding of the normative Family. And, further prohibitions against any limitations on Free Will and Freedom of Conscience, in support of Liberty, Freedom of Religion, and the ability to rightly choose eternal salvation.
A parallel comparison of the "evolution" of Christian moral law.
The "Lavender Mafia" Bishops who still to this day commit and hide and protect homosexual crimes of clergy and who promote the acceptance of sodomy within the Church are probably always the same ones who are cooperating with Marxism and Globalism to displace and destroy nations. Not withstanding the fact that nations are the only things standing between human civilization and utter barbarity.
Catholics, too, "shop" for Pastors and Parishes. Some seek the original Magisterial teaching, others seek lifestyle-convenient teaching. We have actual homosexual Parishes, flying the rainbow flag of sodomy, and still calling themselves Catholic. We have softened teaching on Marriage Annulments causing easy Catholic annulments to equal or exceed Protestant divorces and remarriages, and Bishops actually celebrating that fact. When over half of all Catholics have left the faith since Vatican II and over half of those remaining practice artificial contraception, and more than half of all practicing Catholics vote the straight Marxocrat Party ticket, and we have priests leaving the priesthood still vastly outnumbering the newly ordained, and all plans for the future involve closing and "consolidating" Parishes, you might think that alarm bells are sounding among the hierarchy. But they are not. Crickets. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.
The Constitution, on the other hand, further established in the Supreme Law of the Land the rights to Equal Justice, Life, Liberty and Private Property, right in the body of the Constitution itself, in its Bill of Rights and in other Amendments to the Constitution. Every single established Constitutional citizen right stems from these original Declaration of Independence rights. These rights cannot be violated with impunity, nor can they be legally abrogated without amending the Constitution itself. At least not forever, unless America fails totally.
A parallel comparison of major political Party agendas:
The Marxocrat Party agenda to "Democratize" the Catholic Church in America should not be laughed at; it is making progress. After all, Cultural Marxism has already almost totally Democratized material science and bent it to their ideology, in the creation of Scientism. If they could successfully commandeer material science and make it a tool in their globalist arsenal, why not try to do the same thing to theological science? It shouldn't be too hard; look at all the inroads Cultural Marxism has already made in Catholic universities like Notre Dame.
The extent that this insidious intellectual infection can destroy human reason might be illustrated by Stephen Hawking's recommendation to colonize Mars, quick, before Earth dies. He obviously believes the Population Problem hoax, the Climate Change hoax and all the "unsustainability" crappola of the Establishment Globalist political agenda. Proving that even a scientist lauded by all peers as a genius can be indoctrinated, propagandized and made into an illogical stupid ass.
The Marxocrat Party agenda promotes the Culture of Death in its entirety. To that end, it uses their corrupted courts, the non-representative and unaccountable bureaucracies and even illegal executive actions to establish unconstitutional and therefore illegal false "civil rights" that actually act to illegally violate existing Constitutional civil rights. At the top of the list is their opposition to and repression of Christian religion, in direct violation of the Constitution.
Phony civil rights, such as the right to abortion, a "right" to contraception, a "requirement" of others to provide contraception, the right to homosexual marriage, the right to require Christians to support homosexual events, the right of minorities to unequal special legal treatment over majorities, the restriction of free speech through speech codes, hate-speech and hate-crime laws and "Politically Correct" speech, and on, and on. All of these are not only out-of-Constitutional-scope, but all of them are also direct Constitutional violations. They are crimes, pure and simple.
The Marxocrat Party, which, in and of itself, is an unconstitutional entity, is successfully reducing American citizen independence and radically increasing American citizen total dependence upon government. That is the goal of Marxist Socialism. Mostly through unconstitutional regulations, issued by unconstitutional bureaucracies, citizen behavior is ever increasingly limited, and citizen dependence on government is grown. Systematically.
The Republicrat Party has stopped not one bit of any of this. They cooperate in the process. Like their pretended opposition, this Party, in and of itself, is an unconstitutional entity. As are all Political Parties in America. Parties are not mentioned in Article One Section Eight, or anywhere else in the Constitution or any of its Amendments. Nor is there any mention of Party Primary elections selecting candidates for federal office; nor is there any mention of Party Delegates, Party Conventions, or anything else federal treasure is currently being wasted on.
"Conservative" pundits and commentators who say that a President Hillary would be stopped from doing further damage by a Republicrat controlled Congress are either fools or liars. If a Republicrat controlled Congress has not ever stopped one single destructive unconstitutional crime of Comrade Obama (peace be upon him) then what on earth makes anyone think they will ever act to stop any continuation of his unconstitutional criminal agenda by Madam Killery? I mean Hillary.
The Republicrat Party is in on it, the people are waking up to it, and that's why Trump is where he is. Not just conservatives; not just Christians; the whole people are waking up to the lawlessness of the whole Establishment, not just the Parties. If Trump once learns of the power of the Constitution, as the Supreme Law of the Land, he can actually weaponize it, as the principle law enforcement officer of America, if he is elected President. He could then take out the whole damned Establishment Club and restore American greatness, almost overnight. More about that later.
Again, Parties are nowhere mentioned in the Constitution. That makes them illegal as operative parts of the federal government. Nor is the Establishment Donor-Owner Elite Social Club that funds and operates the Parties, and that derives it's share of annual tax revenues (federal contracts, bail-outs, subsidies, favorable regulations, etc.) from them, to be found anywhere in the Constitution. No one ever elected George Soros, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet to anything, nor are the biggest banks and investment houses and funds, the US Chamber of Commerce or Hollywood Nobility in any way representative of or accountable to the American citizenry. Yet they are running the whole show, as an unconstitutional shadow government.
The Political Parties, and their owning Establishment Club, listen more to the UN, the EU, the World Court, the WTO, COMINTERN, WWF, various Global Environmental fraud promoters, etc., than they do to the American people. The American government is supposed to be protecting the established civil rights of the American people, not fixing the climate or any other such hoax-based international Globalist nonsense.
A parallel comparison of our Presidential Candidates:
The Republicrat Party, and really the whole Party System and the whole "Establishment" that runs it, has shot itself in the foot. The Marxocrats are out to destroy the Constitution; indeed, they are in the process of actively destroying the Constitution, and the Republicrats have no particular interest in defending it. With far too few notable exceptions, the Republicrat Party wants open borders, amnesty and quick voting citizenship for all the criminal aliens, and they want it just as much as the Marxocrats do, and they just keep proving it. They have no concern for the Constitution, and they have absolutely no concern for the interest of the citizenry, and they just keep proving that, too.
They actually stand diametrically opposed to their own voter base.
Many Bishops, too, seem to be on board the Marxist ideological bus. Dolan, and many others, recite what looks like the same boilerplate language more typical these days of the Mainstream Media in their fully scripted, Marxocrat-slanted "News" reporting. Referring to the criminal aliens as "immigrants", for instance, and referring to Trump and his followers as "Nativists". And they thereby make obvious liars of themselves, right out in the open. Catholic Bishops.
There are no immigration papers for these criminals, because they are not immigrants. They were criminally lured here, allowed in here, and kept in here, against the law, by the sitting federal government and the Marxocrat Party. The whole purpose is to get them all on welfare, food stamps, on Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid, in the public education system, and into American hospitals. To "Cloward-Piven" the overloaded American economy into the dumpster and crash America, and maybe the world. And Dolan knows it, because he is a part of it.
And none of that even touches on the continually growing Islamic Ummah in America.
So, how did the Establishment shoot itself in the foot?
In what they have done and are doing to Donald Trump. They have been prodding and teasing and torturing, with long sticks and from a safe distance, a truly large and powerful alpha male brawler who does not play by their rules. They have declared war, as it were, and thrown down the gauntlet, right in front of him. (They have done this before, but nobody ever picked it up before this.) As President, if he is elected, Trump will be off the leash, the kennel will be opened, and then there will be hell to pay.
We can hope that some Bishops might take a lesson from Trump and begin their own campaign to reinforce orthodoxy and openly condemn heterodoxy, using Truth as a weapon, just as Trump may use the Constitution as a weapon.
A parallel comparison of Catholic and Constitutional "Anvils":
The hemorrhaging of Catholic laity and the hemorrhaging of Catholic Priests could be slowed, stopped and reversed fairly quickly by a return to strict Catholic orthodoxy, unvarnished, out front, very public, preached from the pulpit, highlighting the differences between Catholicism and all the rest of the World. Here is the thing about the anvil of Truth to which only Catholic Bishops may apply the hammer of Apostolic Authority:
That might be divisive, but then, Catholicism is supposed to be divisive. More would enter or come back or be truly converted than those who might leave. Fear of losing anyone just feeds indifferentism. Non-judgmentally taking in everyone is, in fact, idifferentism.
Who, exactly, are we?
A President Trump could almost take the Marxocrat Party out of existence, and surely out of all power at the federal level, just based on past violations of the Constitution. In fact, he could take the whole Party system itself out of existence by Breaking the Parties. He could undo the whole unconstitutional mess and take out the whole Establishment Club that has been trying to destroy him, by simply going through the steps in Restoring the Constitution. Opponents, including opponents in his own Party, would be forced to publicly argue against the Constitution they swore to uphold just to defend themselves.
Just as heterodox Bishops, in my dream world above, would be forced to publicly argue against Revealed Truth and the Bible just to defend their heterodoxy. The Bible either says what it says, or it does not.
It really is that simple.

Response to Anonymous comnenter:
It's very odd that you don't even want your charges/questions quoted here, and I almost decided against responding at all for that reason. But your points are important, and others may be thinking along the same lines, so here I am.
When religion drives politics, and the religion is the religion of the people, the result is stable government and stable peaceful populace. When that religion is Jewish or Christian, then the morality driving the creation of civil law is "good" morality, stemming from the Judaeo-Christian Ethos. Other religions are not so "good"; some, such as Islam, are "bad".
Serious problems arise when the opposite occurs, and politics drives religion, or, politics eliminates religion. As in "secular" France, or Marxist Russia or China, the result is state-determined, purely utilitarian and materialistic ideology that becomes law. Law in which nothing is sacred, including even human life.
The same thing happens with Political Parties, which always "evolve" over time, based on the popular issue or issues of any moment in political time. They almost never go away after some issue wins or loses. They just develop other issues to champion or oppose. And that just means becoming increasingly powerful political factions continually squabbling over issues, and even over nonsense, with an ever decreasing interest in their national organizations, their citizenry, or any true fixed sense of right versus wrong.
That's how some European nations developed thirty or more viable, recognized Political Parties. That's how America's Democrat Party became the Marxocrat Party, the Republican Party became the Republicrat Party and the USCCB became the Catholicrat Party.
See the Political Parties Pages.
If you want to build a completely independent and personally owned actual website, like this one, this is how you do it.
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.

Restoring Constitutional America Pages
If it isn't in Article One Section Eight, the federal government shouldn't be doing it. If it violates any part of the Constitution, especially the Bill Of Rights, the federal government shouldn't be doing it.
Breaking the Parties: Ending unconstitutional, illegal control of government. Political Parties were never Constitutional. Making American government more manageable, representative and Constitutional begins with breaking the Parties.
Breaking the Media: ending control and slanting of public political opinion. A return to American Constitutionalism and recognizing truth requires breaking the media's controlling relationship to American politics.
Breaking-Taxation: Ending all taxes on all Private Property, including Income. And if your income is not your private property, then, whose is it? Ending all unrepresentative, regulatory and unconstitutional taxes.
Breaking Regulation: Ending unconstitutional, unlegislated lawmaking. Breaking Regulation means shutting down unrepresentative and unconstitutional bureaucracies that make regulations with full force of law behind them.
Breaking Dissimilation: Cultural Evil masquerading as Assimilation. Breaking Dissimilation means maintaining Who We Are, as a Distinct People, in the face of Forced, Purposeful Immigration of Evil.
Breaking Obamacare: Eliminating Socialized Medicine once and for all. Breaking Obamacare and showing that neither Health Care nor Health Care Insurance are the Constitutional business of the federal government.
Breaking Public Education: Killing Tax-Paid Anti-American Indoctrination. Breaking Public Education at the federal level may be the only way to kill Common Core under all its aliases.
Breaking Anti-Constitution Culture Rot: Making America Good Again. America cannot be great again until she is good again, and becoming good again requires breaking anti-Constitution culture-rot.
Breaking Unions: Ending Marxism's intrusion into work place relationships. Breaking Unions means breaking the very reason Organized Labor was originally Organized: to provide a path to violent revolution.
Breaking Marxism: Excising America's destructive social parasite. Breaking Marxism will be a tougher job than Breaking Islam, because "Cultural Marxism" is now interwoven into our national cultural fabric.
Breaking Islam: Getting Islam out of America, and making war on Jihad. Constitutional survival demands breaking Islam and breaking Marxism in America, and opposing their progress elsewhere in the world.
Breaking Voter Fraud: Ending Alien, Unidentified and Domestic Enemy Voting. The whole goal of open borders, amnesty, opposing voter-ID and early voting is to defraud the system, defeat the Constitution and take over America.
Repairing Defense: Undoing the Obamunist - Marxocrat Party's damage. Repairing Defense is an absolute requirement for American military before any serious military action.
Breaking The UN: De-funding a Globalist, Dependent-Upon-Us Mortal Enemy. The UN is now a Globalist, predominantly Marxist and Moslem, anti-American and anti-sovereignty, corrupt, criminal enterprise. It needs to be broken.
Breaking The FED: Repealing the 1913 Federal Reserve Act to Restore Treasury. Getting America's Currency and Treasure back under America's government requires breaking the FED.
Breaking The Drug Lords: Ending the Drug War by Killing the Black Market. If we are ever to return to being a Constitutional Republic, we must realize that drugs are not covered by the Constitution, and end the Business by killing the Market.
Breaking Globalism: The anti-sovereignty dream of borderless hodgepodge. Globalism: the New Communism. Anti-nation chaos dressed up as Utopia. A phony ideology so stupid it makes my feet hurt.
Breaking Abortion: Rescuing American Civilization from Utter Barbarity. Breaking Abortion is the first step in restoring the Constitution to its rightful place as the Supreme Law of the Land.
Breaking Homo Marriage: What the hell was the Court thinking? Breaking Homo Marriage, as one step among many in getting our three co-equal branches of federal government back into their separate and strictly limited individual Constitutional corners.
Breaking Secularism: Our Unconstitutional "Separation of Church and State". Restoring religious freedom requires breaking secularism, breaking Unconstitutional Political Parties and restoring our original Judaeo-Christian National Ethos.
Breaking Gun Control: Re-establishing Constitutional Citizen Security. Breaking Gun Control means declaring related unconstitutional gun laws to be null and void, because they violate the Second Amendment.
Breaking Chaos: Restoring Order in the face of Evil Revolution. Proactively breaking chaos means re-institutionalizing Truth, through proper fear of the Lord.
Breaking Faux Civil Rights: If it's not Constitutional it's not a Civil Right. If they are not in the Natural Law and not in the Constitution, then they are not "Civil Rights" and they may not be addressed in Federal Law.
Breaking Heterodoxy: Priests can either restore orthodoxy, or they cannot. All the other "Breaking" pages have to do with the Constitution; this one has to do with the return to Roman Catholic Orthodoxy, which leads the way in restoring American cultural morality.
Breaking The Club: Breaking the Big Money control of American Politics. Our Politics are run by money, money, money. Breaking The Establishment Club requires breaking the big money requirement of Professional Politics.
Consequences of Breaking the System and Restoring the Constitution. Assessing the good, bad and ugly consequences of breaking the system of political corruption and returning America to Constitutional Rule.

Another Marxist "Catholic Spring"? Yawn. So what else is new? Breaking News: A Catholic Springtime of Revolution. Well, ho hum, heavy sigh and here we go again.
Political Parties = Political Denominationalism = Diversity in Patriotism. Denominationalism varies Revealed Truth; Political Parties vary Constitutional Meaning.
Evil Unmasked: Ryan and the boys openly side with America's enemies. If they won't support their own candidate in a two-person race, which candidate does that leave unopposed?
Invincible Ignorance my ass. It's invincible lawlessness running amuck. Government, academia, journalism and entertainment, all working together as one big criminal enterprise.
The Great Global Deception: "Death of a thousand cuts" applied to Civilization. The Global Deception is Machiavellian-ism applied by inches, in which the "Revolution" never quite comes, because the Target Institution destroys itself.
On the Mythical Conservative Movement of the Republicrat Party. Conservative Movement? What Conservative Movement? There ain't no Conservative Movement.
Stupid Intellectuals: The conservative political sophist circular firing squad. The stupid "intellectuals" in the establishment who just keep shooting themselves.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.

"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
