The “not a shot was fired” theory. Your thoughts?

Can’t disagree with it. Probably one of the most accurate posts I’ve ever read here.

With some difference it will probably be this way for all who follow Christ. As it was in the beginning, so it will be again - home churches.

Prior to the internet and instant broadcast of news and opinion this scenario would have been believable. Now, a few passionate souls is all it takes to sway public opinion either for or against a new act or policy. That won’t stop the vipers from trying but it’s a different world now.

Obama’s picked the wrong enemy here. He’ll go down in flames if he persists . . .

I think, within 15 years, it will be mandated that Churches preform gay “weddings” or lose their tax exempt status.

15 years ago, the concept of gay marriage was an alien one. The world of 15 years from now will be just as alien.

Obviously there is danger but the previous Pope stood up to the Soviet Union and prevailed. This one should work to expose Obama, beginning with Arpaio's work, and prevail against the American Marxists.

Not with a bang, but with a whimper.

All true, except for ONE PROBLEM.

The state IS Broke. The collapse IS imminent. The “fascist super state” is unsustainable. But this IS their plan.

This reminds me of "The Children's Story" by James Clavell.

For the most part, this article accurately describes the erstwhile ‘docile’ GOP Republican and/or average conservative American - honest, hardworking - law abiding.

I used to consider myself in that group. I do not any more.

I don’t consider misapplied enforcement, capricious regulation, biased adjudication, illegal confiscation, fascist dictates and socialist agendas as consistent with the Constitution of this country. These people are not Americans and they should be treated as an enemy.

Indeed, the process began more than 40 years ago. 1968 was the pivotal year: the year of unrest in Europe and America, the year of Humanae Vitae, when a pope donned the robe of prophet and was ignored. Anyway, back in December, 1965, as the Council was ending, Jacques Maritain had published his own prophecy. In his Peasant of Garonne, the erstwhile darling of the liberals spoke of genuflecting to the World. That is what so-many Catholics has been doing ever since the Council. Bending the knee to his infernal lowness.

Thanks for posting this article. It all seems very plausible. The American Catholic Church, which used to be just a term, will become a reality. The constitution is already out the window. If the SCOTUS upholds Obamacare it all falls into place.

Sounds familiar.

Right, Henry?
