Skip to comments.CatholicTV calls for "Benevolent Dictatorship"?!

This may be one of the more disturbing things I have ever seen. This video is shown to people, and even more frightening, many are likely inspired by it. This guy basically says that the problem with our country is that "everyone can vote", both ignorant know-nothings who only care about themselves(aka people who support abortion, gay marriage, etc), and informed people(aka people who agree with his/the organizations particular views)
and this is all presented in such a way as if it is incontrovertible. as if having an opinion that a woman has a right to choose or that homosexuality is someone's own business means you havent read a book in your life and are just saying that because you only care about your own "selfish interests".
and scariest of all, they actually use the words "Benevolent Dictatorship", where only those who agree with this guy's views are allowed to vote. true freedom. i think im gonna be sick
I’m interested in what he said that deserved a zot.
I can imagine that the post that Alex quoted was cause enough to be zotted, but all the zots I’ve seen so far (I’m pretty new) are announced on thread by Jim. So I’m thinking he was zotted on another thread.
Per Roamer_1’s request . . . END TIMES PING
FYI . . . could relate to end times stuff, certainly.
Roman Catholicism believes in the authentic and inherent right to power of the super hierarchy. RC adherents WANT to be told what to do because they do not believe in the existence of the individual Christian’s conscience washed clean by the Holy Spirit which can actually discern right from wrong.
This Youtube blather is a GREAT example of the RC mindset control, control, control. And dictatorship is the natural outgrowth of this desire for unchallenged authoritarianism. Spain, Mexico, Italy. Argentina. All fascists. All RC.
Everybody should watch this short video. It’s eye-opening.
Amazing how you know all that. Got a source?
This is exactly what Rome desires.
Rome demands religious tolerance for itself, but it denies it to others, calling other churches "defective assemblies" while championing a Catholic dictatorship.
The papacy is not benign; it only plays it benign on TV.
So much material, so little time......
Only Catholics allowed to vote? Because they’re the only ones with their eyes on God?
That sure doesn’t describe 99.99% of the Catholics I grew up with and worked with, including myself when I was a Catholic before I got saved.
Catholicism produces a benevolent dictatorship??????
Can you say *Inquisition*?????
And last but not least, the moron doesn’t really understand our form of government if he thinks it’s a democracy. This country’s form of government is a representative republic.
Yes, there are inherent dangers like he mentioned, but the answer is not in us giving up our freedom to some alleged *benevolent* control of and by the Catholic church. If the Catholic church is so interested in virtuous and moral people voting, they need to get off their collective behinds and convert people into Christians who keep their eyes on God and vote something besides DEMOCRATIC. And they need to start with a virtuous and moral priesthood setting the example of how to live a pure and godly life.
If he thinks that the Catholic church is the virtuous moral organization to dictate us, all for our own good, of course, he’s living in la-la-land. The level of delusion he’s displaying is staggering. When the Catholic church cleans house and can PROVE, by its appropriate dealing with immorality and corruption within its own ranks, AND grassroots Catholics quit voting overwhelmingly liberal, pro-homosexuality, pro-abortion, democrat, then he might begin to have a case to present. Until then, he has NOTHING of substance to say.
God help us.
The last thing we need is the Catholic church running the government. It gives new meaning to the words, *I’m from the government and I’m here to help you*.
Thank God the Protestant Founding Fathers put the First Amendment in the Constitution, to prevent the kind of power grab that Catholics would obviously love to exercise.
Welcome to FR.
yawn... we see this same garbage on this forum everyday.
So, you're a Catholic monarchist, by your own admission?
This should be interesting.....
Since Feb 28, 2011
Thanks for the ping!
He should pack his bags and move his tail to Venezuela .
It’s 96% Roman Catholic , abortion is illegal and they have their own little dictator in Hugo Chavez .
May God have mercy on individuals awash in such hideousness.
South American countries are impoverished and it certainly isn’t due to lack of natural resources.
If that’s an example of what Catholicism leads to, they can keep their dictatorships.

The most amazing thing about this link is that we have Roman Catholic FReepers cheering it.
All tyranny is the same tyranny -- "somebody else think for me."
Aristotle, Federalist and Anti-federalist Papers, The Constitution and Toqueville’s Democracy in America.
Our Founding Fathers knew the danger of a true democracy; they tried to protect us from it. The anti-federalists pushed for even greater protection of the Republic because they and Toqueville foresaw exactly the situation we are now in.
The Founding Father envisioned an informed, educated, virtuous electorate. They, as Franklin said, gave us a Republic but we, as he feared, have not kept it.
