Why Catholic Christianity will never be politically correct

See also

To fit into the little holes in the societal wall, many people allow the popular culture to bang on them with the hammer of political correctness until they are mushed into the hole as a carbon-copy pseudo-human person.

This can never happen to an authentic Catholic-Christian.

"You have lived on earth in luxury and pleasure; you have fattened your hearts for the day of slaughter. You have condemned; you have murdered the righteous one; he offers you no resistance." James 5:1-6

A good little Catholic-Christian is trained by the powers of popular political correctness to think that only rich people are evil, and poor migrant workers are their victims. While this injustice may be true, and must be rectified through charity and legislation, this is often the manipulative workings of socialists and economic redistributionists.

What about the poor victims of abortion? What about the poor victims of chronic unemployment/underemployment? What about the poor victims of the traditional family--Catholic-Christians who have become 'hate criminals' because of their religious belief in traditional marriage, and their religious rejection of abortion and contraception?

What about American Christianity in general?

I'm not speaking about 'cafeteria' Catholics or pseudo-Christians who talk the talk of Jesus, but reject Church teaching and support the culture of death and gay 'marriage.' I am talking about real Christianity, really persecuted.

Jesus is Crucified again and again, not only in mistreated migrant workers, but in all of the people mentioned above!

" Man in his prosperity forfeits intelligence; he is one with the cattle doomed to slaughter." Psalm 49:14-20 (Jerusalem Bible translation)

Political Correctness demands a herd mentality.

Instead of looking forward toward the horizon of Jesus' Second Coming, and living accordingly in holiness and faith, while looking back to the example of the saints, the politically correct cow looks sideways, always trying to walk, talk, and think like the pop stars, politicians, diva's, and hero's of the month. Subsequently, they forget the horizon of the Christ, and the example of the saint, and live only for the now in pleasure seeking...just like a cow.

The Catholic-Christian, while trying not to trip on the politically correct, clumsy cow, must overcome the natural temptation to conform: 'When in Rome, do as the Romans do.' Catholic-Christianity is always COUNTER-CULTURAL in the Cross.

For what cow would understand Crucifixion? What cow comprehends Love?

"If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed than with two hands togo into Gehenna, into the unquenchable fire." Mark 9:41-50

The PC cow avoids suffering at all costs.

PC cows kill unborn babies instead of facing parental responsibility. Responsibility hurts! PC cows would rather practice homosexuality, masturbation, pornography, and marital infidelity, than suffer the goodness of self-restraint. PC cows would rather persecute the Church, deny Truth, and attack religious freedom than suffer the requirements of being good, true and beautiful.

Catholic-Christians, though imperfect in accepting suffering, tend toward the Cross...even when it hurts!

Resurrection now (in joy and inner peace), and definitively (in heaven), depend on accepting ones cross.

The Cross is certainly NOT PC!
