There's nothing more sickening, aside from the apostasy of a progressive Catholic, than a self-professed 'traditional' Catholic who interprets Jesus' self-sacrifice on the Cross, and His messages of peace and Love, as an excuse to remain inactive in the status quo of this secularist-socialist, tyrannical society. Truth be told, he, or she, is probably looking for an excuse to protect their well endowed financial assets, and their all too comfortable position in society.
Social and political inactivity, though apparently masked in the 'pacifism' of the mythically-secularized Christ, which may, by the way, feel good and gain PC points, leads only to the sin of omission, and the collapse of our once great Judaeo-Christian nation.
"A bruised reed he shall not break, and a smoldering wick he shall not quench, Until he establishes justice on the earth; the coastlands will wait for his teaching." Isaiah 42:1-7
When will progressive Catholics, and the lukewarm faithful, realize there's a big difference between the gentle Jesus and the unrelenting progressive PC mafia? When will Catholics open their eyes to millions of dead 'bruised reeds' in aborted babies, and the 'smoldering wick' of Judaeo-Christianity in America, quenched by the tyranny of an intolerant popular society?
When will we see the urgency of our situation, turn off our electronics, turn from the popular decadence which numbs and distracts us, and come together in the only Communion which will save us...the Communion of faith-and-family committed Catholics who have come together to protect all that is good, but dying, in America?
"Though an army encamp against me, my heart will not fear; Though war be waged upon me, even then will I trust." Psalm 27:1-3, 13-14
Only a fool, or a coward, still believes that by being nice, and by trying to fit in, they will appease the steadily growing progressive behemoth in America. If we can't see the deadly threat of the ravenous beast in the Pelletier case in Massachusetts, in the Bundy Ranch case in Nevada, in the actions of the Obama alphabet soup, IRS, NSA, DHS, EPA, ICE, etc., we are most definitely willfully blind.
If we do not see our own paralysis in the overbearing shackles of political correctness--in our fear of being labeled 'racist, homophobe, islamophobe, mysogynist,' etc.--we are doomed to a death march in some quasi-concentration camp in the mountains of Montana.
"Then Judas the Iscariot, one of his disciples, and the one who would betray him, said, 'Why was this oil not sold for three hundred days’ wages and given to the poor?' He said this not because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief and held the money bag and used to steal the contributions. So Jesus said, 'Leave her alone. Let her keep this for the day of my burial. You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.'” John 12:1-11
If we can't differentiate the 'social justice' of the Obama administration, and progressive Catholicism, from the true charity of the Holy Spirit in the Roman Catholic Church, then maybe we should just shackle ourselves, and start marching for that soon-to-come camp. Or maybe we are already marching there in the sad fact that we (American Catholics) voted for a Pro-Choice POTUS twice! Maybe we are already marching there by trying all too hard to fit in with pop society. Maybe we are already marching there by putting our head in the ground like the proverbial ostrich, hoping it will all go away with a chorus of 'kumbaya!'
'Kumbaya' or action? I'll take my chances on Judgment Day with double barrel action. How about you?
