McCarrick’s not a player anymore. Actually, I don’t even think retired bishops could support him without drawing down the ire of Rome. I think this has finally gotten to the point of no return.
What will probably happen - in my humble and non-prophetic opinion - is that some bishop will come out and support Bambi, be excommunicated, and start his own personal schism, which will result in the American Patriotic Church or, for simplicity’s sake, the “American Church.” Sadly, a huge number of allegedly Catholic folk would follow him.
But I think the Pope is ready for this.
Understood. Don't disagree.
You ever read, Robert Hugh Benson, Lord of the World? You can buy it hardcopy or read it online here.
Synopsis: Described by Fulton Sheen as one of the three greatest depictions of the advent of the demonic in world literature, Lord of the World is science fiction with a difference. The West has succumbed to a sort of international socialism. The forces of secular materialism, relativism and state control are everywhere triumphant. Protestantism is no more, and Catholicism which had made some major advances in the first half of the twentieth century has been devastated by the development of new psychologies and the exodus of intellectuals in the wake of an Ecumenical Council. Euthanasia has become an instrument of the state, Esperanto the universal second language. Nevertheless, although organised religion has largely collapsed in the face of institutional secularism, a vague, humanistic religiosity militantly hostile to the exclusive and supernatural claims of the Church is present everywhere. Finally, the East, which has amalgamated into a single, pantheistic bloc, continues to pose a military threat. Enter Julian Felsenberg diplomat, scholar, guru, Antichrist...
You might be right. Let the light of day fall on those who have no real faith in the church to begin with. Catholics for free choice,call to action just to name a few. I was watching O’reilly the other night and he was discussing how the immigration issue could destroy the republicans. After giving amnesty and then free stuff they would be loyal to the dems. We are talking millions of voters. No longer would our country have a two party system. This is not the first time I have heard this scenario before. There are a lot of hispanic Christians in this country and we need to reach out to them so that they will not embrace the gospel of death and damnation that belongs to Obama,abortion and homosexual marriage.
