Exactly-—the Church became irrelevant after the Marxists infiltrated and socialized their messages of “Marxist social justice—as if it can exist”, tolerance to sin, and adopt the Marxist radical egalitarianism which makes human beings into godless animals who can be interchangeable-—no roles for man and women—no Design in human beings. Girls can be altar boys....etc., cr*pola. Feminize the Church—show that women and men are the exact same, contrary to science and logic.
It is a disaster what the Marxist infiltration did to the Catholic Doctrine and how it enshrined sin and Godless Marxism to such an extent it allowed molestation of children.
The Church has to get back to its doctrines of subsidiarity and that charity can never be given by centralized governments. Their Marxists beliefs have to be expunged-—the idea that governments are good for “universal health care” , etc. They should know better and teach the Truth.
Its a little extreme to call the Church “irrelevant”.
Marxist influence is still present in the Church, but by no means does it dominate the Church. The very upper levels of the Church leadership are quite conservative, as is the majority of practicing Catholics and some of the societies. Sadly, many (not all) bishops and priests lean heavily to the left.
There is a lot of conflict with the leadership in Rome and US Bishops. Which is related to the conflict with the nuns.
