Posted on 08/27/2010 11:45:13 AM PDT by Hank Kerchief
The ultimate intention of Catholicism is the restoration of the Holy Roman Empire. That has always been the ambition, at least covertly, but now it is being promoted overtly and openly.
The purpose of this article is only to make that intention clear. It is not a criticism of Catholics or Catholicism (unless you happen to think a Catholic dictatorship is not a good thing).
The most important point is to understand that when a Catholic talks about liberty or freedom, it is not individual liberty that is meant, not the freedom to live one's life as a responsible individual with the freedom to believe as one chooses, not the freedom to pursue happiness, not the freedom to produce and keep what one has produced as their property. What Catholicism means by freedom, is freedom to be a Catholic, in obedience to the dictates of Rome.
The Intentions Made Plain
The following is from the book Revolution and Counter-Revolution:
"B. Catholic Culture and Civilization
"Therefore, the ideal of the Counter-Revolution is to restore and promote Catholic culture and civilization. This theme would not be sufficiently enunciated if it did not contain a definition of what we understand by Catholic culture and Catholic civilization. We realize that the terms civilization and culture are used in many different senses. Obviously, it is not our intention here to take a position on a question of terminology. We limit ourselves to using these words as relatively precise labels to indicate certain realities. We are more concerned with providing a sound idea of these realities than with debating terminology.
"A soul in the state of grace possesses all virtues to a greater or lesser degree. Illuminated by faith, it has the elements to form the only true vision of the universe.
"The fundamental element of Catholic culture is the vision of the universe elaborated according to the doctrine of the Church. This culture includes not only the learning, that is, the possession of the information needed for such an elaboration, but also the analysis and coordination of this information according to Catholic doctrine. This culture is not restricted to the theological, philosophical, or scientific field, but encompasses the breadth of human knowledge; it is reflected in the arts and implies the affirmation of values that permeate all aspects of life.
"Catholic civilization is the structuring of all human relations, of all human institutions, and of the State itself according to the doctrine of the Church.
Got that? "Catholic civilization is the structuring of all human relations, of all human institutions, and of the State itself according to the doctrine of the Church." The other name for this is called "totalitarianism," the complete rule of every aspect of life.
This book and WEB sites like that where it is found are spreading like wildfire. These people do not believe the hope of America is the restoration of the liberties the founders sought to guarantee, these people believe the only hope for America is Fatima. Really!
In Their Own Words
The following is from the site, "RealCatholicTV." It is a plain call for a "benevolent dictatorship, a Catholic monarch;" their own words. They even suggest that when the "Lord's Payer," is recited, it is just such a Catholic dictatorship that is being prayed for.

First, in this country, freedom of speech means that anyone may express any view no matter how much anyone else disagrees with that view, or is offended by it. I totally defend that meaning of freedom of speech.
This is what Catholics believe, and quite frankly, I do not see how any consistent Catholic could disagree with it, though I suspect some may. I have no objection to their promoting those views, because it is what they believe. Quite frankly I am delighted they are expressing them openly. For one thing, it makes it much easier to understand Catholic dialog, and what they mean by the words they use.
Secondly, I think if their views were actually implemented, it would mean the end true freedom, of course, but I do not believe there is any such danger.
I believe in the trinity: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. That said, Mary was nothing more than a human vessel for delivery of God the Son also known as Jesus.
Catholics put her on par with Jesus which is an incredible insult to Him. To say the she could intercede on our behalf is a disgrace to Jesuss ultimate sacrifice.
But hey, keep up with your hail Marys if it makes you feel better.
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!
Correct. I cannot argue with the numbers, yet overall, the percentage, even as the country has grown in population, has remained stable.
The only rubber bibles I'm aware of are those in the snake handling division of the Pentecostals. Can't help you there. However, I will say that the lady has manned up and you haven't. What does she have that you don't?
You’re worth it.
Then why tell us?
Mat 6:5 ¶ And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites [are]: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Read it again. He knelt.
You need to read it again ... no where in that chapter does it say Jesus knelt.. we do not get to write in what we like.. It says He fell on His face.. that is a prostrate position not kneeling.. No where does jesus ever teach that kneeling is the correct or preferred prayer position..
The idea that God is impressed is such an alien thought to my mind, it must be the domain of the elect Calvinists thinking that the Holy One could be impressed.
Actually I would say Calvinists believe the only thing that pleases God is His work in us .. We can not work our way to heaven or earn points by going to church or receiving a sacrament or a prostrate prayer position.. grace is God's unmerited favor ..the key word being unmerited..
Catholics think the "gospel" is Matt, Mark ,Luke and John.. But Jesus said He was preaching this gospel long before the books were written.. What was the gospel Jesus preached? What is missing in Paul's summary ?
How much longer O Quix?
Nobody can prevent anyone from perverting the Scriptures, but we DO have them so that we have the standard for determining what is the truth. There have been hundreds of "heretical" teachings over the centuries (millennia, actually) but we STILL know what is the orthodox Christian faith. I give credit where credit is due and we have the faith of old to thank for it. God said he would preserve his truth and he keeps his word. This is not to say everything one particular segment of Christianity is superior to another or that any one has not made mistakes in other areas, just that the basics that are clearly laid out in Scripture have not and cannot change regardless of what label any one may choose.
He said that? He could have preached after the books about his preaching, life and death were written?
This is nonsensical and it doesn't help the case from a Paulinian view either.
Just for starters:
Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.
The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God. It is written in Isaiah the prophet:
"I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way" "a voice of one calling in the desert, 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.' "
And so John came, baptizing in the desert region and preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River.
The Gospel, according to the Church were completely covered in the four Gospels. Nothing is, to Church thinking, missing. The entire preaching of Jesus is there. Tell you what, why don't you summarize the differences between Jesus and Paul and get back to us. It may take you a while, you know...
My friend, you speak wisdom. And I am foolish. How shall I reconcile the two, if not for the intervention of friends?
Kosta said that no eyewitnesses were named.
You have not named any, especially any individuals apart from the heart of Christianity. Where is the equivalent of Cato? Why has is there nothing from Claudius, who wrote extensively before being thrust into the Emperor’s seat? Where even, are the anti Christian Jewish writings, along with their authors?
Did you get that picture from Father Funes ?
Is that one of his “brother extraterrestrials” he published about in the Vatican paper ?
I couldn't have said it better. Also some of his work is suspected to be forgery.
