A Masking of the Truth
A cover for the BIG LIE. Racism. Climate Change. Black Lives Matter. Brought to you by the FEAR peddlers. Faith is the opposite of fear. Faith in God. Faith in religion that protects Life, Marriage, and Family. That is what protects the child. The fear peddlers hate everything. Especially the Truth. Fear only God.

Thought you might be interested in this, chrys. And before you dismiss the source because it's the Reporter, at least read their stories. If you don't want the post here, let me know and I'll remove it and make a thread for it.

Support of Trump within church has driven some Catholics to the exits

A practicing Catholic all his life, Boyle was serious enough about his faith that he had spent three years as a member of a Dominican community, in the priestly formation track... Many who have left, like Boyle, cite their coreligionists' alliance with the MAGA "Make America Great Again" movement as a key factor in their decision. . . .

J.M. Jensen grew up evangelical, but his attraction to classicism in art and philosophy drew him to Catholicism. He converted in 2008.

Then, in 2015, Trump announced his candidacy. Jensen was sure Christians and Catholics would reject him, but the opposite happened. Leaders and apologists whom he had trusted began not only to make excuses for Trump, but to enthuse over him — even following the release of the "Access Hollywood" tapes that recorded Trump boasting about assaulting women.

"Over the course of the next four years, I saw almost every single Catholic leader who had been a voice for me in my formative years turn to Trump," Jensen said. Though other Catholic voices were outspoken against the MAGA movement, nevertheless Jensen found it depressing to see the change in those he had admired.

"People who once had decried 'cafeteria Catholics' and said that you must give your consent to the church's sexual teachings now said you had to ignore the pope when he talks about the environment or social justice. People who decried the moral relativism of the left now used the same tools when it suited them. All of the principle and character that they demanded of [Bill] Clinton were left at the wayside when a truly foul person came along. All for political power," he said.

Credo in Unum Deum
Chrys is like me, a very knowledgeable Catholic. You are barking up the wrong tree with your propaganda.

Like me, Chrys knows that at least half of American Catholics are Catholic in Name Only. They don't go to church, they reject Church teachings and Biblical teachings, and they embrace the evils of the Left. In that sense they are like many secular Jews, who still call themselves Jews for heritage reasons, but they reject their own scriptures and embrace the evils of the Left. As Pope Paul VI said in a vision, “the smoke of Satan has entered the Church.” He was referring to Liberals in the 60's and 70's.

But your true ignorance about Catholicism shines in this line of yours: "People who once had decried 'cafeteria Catholics' and said that you must give your consent to the church's sexual teachings now said you had to ignore the pope when he talks about the environment or social justice"

The Church's sexual teachings ae rooted in Christ and the Ten Commandments. They relate to Mortal Sins. No Catholic can ignore them and remain a Catholic in good standing. We conservatives believe those teachings.

Conversely, Pope Francis' musings about the environment and social justice have nothing to do with sin and repentance. They are political, and ergo private, points of view and no Catholic is bound by them.

Once again, you have colossally misread the room, and you have not got a single clue what you are talking about.

We knowledgeable Catholics recognize you evil purveyors of infanticide and sodomy for what you are, and for you to try to drive a wedge between us just further proves how evil you are. As for Francis, we knowledgeable Catholics are honest with ourselves and freely admit that over 2,000 we have had a couple of rotten popes, not many but a few, like the Borgias. While Francis is no Borgia, neither is he a Saint John Paul II.

As for you, you are what you have always been, a spreader of evil.

a marxist agenda
A Contagious Virus
A school that spreads it. The teachers are already infected and have limited immunity. They infect our children. The real target is family and religion identified by Marx as the real threat to equality. Religion had to be eliminated to bring about a communist society. Why? Call it freedom. The teachings of the Church protect freedom.

a gender agenda
A Cancelled Culture
A family destroyed. Fathers need not apply. Marriage is meaningless. The teachings of the Church on Life, Marriage, and Family are being ignored. Protect the child. Let the little children come. Climate change is not a threat to children. The Democratic Party is. They along with the media are liars.

a search for the truth
A Clue
A way to recognize it. It might protect the child. It might set you free as in freedom. It will allow you to exercise your religious beliefs and to express your political views. It won't restrict you unless you must have approval for what you are doing. Good luck in your pursuit of truth and happiness.

a subjective truth
A Feel Good Belief
A fact void of reason and logic. My objective truth should be the same as yours. How will we ever agree on anything? Your beliefs may hurt my feelings. Should you keep them to yourself? You should be willing to debate them. You should be willing to listen to others and maybe find out why their beliefs are different. Truth might be saved.

A Time for Everything
A doubt explored. We all have doubts. Few have the time to explore them. We needed to take a time out. Where? On the field. Oh. Covid gave us that time out. A time out to question our values. A time to change our game plan. For way too many it was a time to increase their control over others. Freedom suffered. An important value.

a value
A Protection of Life, Marriage, and Family
A defense of liberty. Religious liberty. A first amendment. The second amendment is the way to defend it. Cling to your guns and bible. They go together like love and marriage. Life and liberty. Free speech is the enemy of the lie. The truth will always win the debate. Reason and logic will prevail.

a fear of religion
A Belief That Makes Others Uncomfortable
A reluctant approval of a lifestyle. Are you creating guilt? Your lack of approval can be seen as hate. Does love demand approval? Not to mention mercy and forgiveness which assumes disapproval. Your belief is a weapon aimed at the victim. Your fear of God is a threat to them.

a social injustice
A Replacement for Religion
A chance to show you care. Climate change and equality are the issues today. A chance to give back just by showing you are on the right side of the important issues. Religion is so yesterday with archaic concepts like Life, Marriage and Family. Start with the children. Teach them to care.

a school being opened
A Critical Race Theory and Climate Change
A new curriculum. Schools are finally being opened but what are they teaching? Fear. The future is scary. Our children are our future. The problem? Way too many kids and systemic racism. The solution? Fewer kids and a marxist system. Can you say communism?

a truth crisis
A Restriction of Freedom
A perfect storm. A future feared. Fear silence. You can't censor or cancel the truth but silence will stop it. The truth like a candle will pierce the darkness of the lie. You just have to light it. Speak it. The teachings of the Church on Life, Marriage, and Family must be promoted by the laity.

a test of time
A Test For The Truth
A time for every purpose. A time to protect. What? The Truth. Teaching the Truth protects the Truth. Somebody has to do it. The teachings of the Church on Life, Marriage, and Family must be protected. Teach them. It is time for the laity to teach them to all nations. Behold He comes with the cloud.
