To: Domestic Church
Great links indeed!
I have a real aversion to conspiracy theories, simply because they've always seemed too convenient, somehow. But I must admit that I have occasionally wondered about this one.
Obviously, the Communists per se are long gone. But it seems all too possible that they may have cleverly poisoned the source (the seminaries). Modernism, of course, was a problem in the Church long before the left became very active in the US. But one of the things that made the Communists so effective (and made it necessary for them to be rooted out of many environments in the 1950s) was their ability to take over things that by their own nature tended to agree with them, and use them to further their own purposes.
I still think, of course, that the main responsibility for the problems of the Church lies with Satan. But just as God uses instruments, Satan does, too. And it's certainly plausible that the Communists were pretty powerful weapons, all the more so for being so covert.

When you look at the communist goals of smearing institutions, also look at the Clinton legacy. There was degradation of the highest office in this nation.(There also was an Arkansas state trooper on a Clinton related case who died from weaponized anthrax.)
Obviously, the Communists per se are long gone.
That would come as a great shock to the CPUSA and its newspaper, the Daily Worker, still published.
If you mean Commies who run around with a neon sign on their coats--true, only a few of them are out there.
But infiltration 101 typically precludes wearing a sign.
