The truth many Catholics refuse to face is that their leadership has ignored church doctrine out of political fear of what government will do in backlash, rather than enforce biblical and church doctrine.

That doesn't explain their politics in America, it wasn't fear, it was a political goal, now the question is, life and traditional marriage, Christian conservatism, etc, or liberalism and unions, welfare, immigration, social justice, big city machine politics, etc.

It’s simple. They either play the game or they lose their tax status. And considering the government has stripped the church of it’s power/other roles in America, from their work in hospitals to adoption, the only thing left is cold hard cash.

As it stands, DEMONSTRABLY, The church has been religated to a mouthpiece of the political left. Either through pushing immigration/gun control, or it’s silence on abortion and homosexuality. Sure they say it’s wrong. But are they holding their people accountable? Nope. And that plays perfectly into the politics of it all.

And for those reading the thread, yes I am being hard on the church. Before anyone calls me the antichrist, ask yourselves if what I posted is backed up by what they see around them daily or not.
