Five major myths surrounding the 2nd Vatican Council:
The myth that the Church was in need of renewal at the time the Council was called.
The myth that Vatican II brought about a renewal.
The myth that the situation improved during the pontificate of John Paul II.
The myth that the Council taught any new infallible dogma and was not simply pastoral.
The myth that the Council did not cause the crisis in the Church — the post hoc ergo propter hoc objection.
Editor’s note: As we all know, “CHANGE” (renewal) is the radical’s favorite cause – much as wolves enjoy “renewing” sheep.
During the mid to late 1960’s radicals took over both the Catholic Church and the Democratic Party of the United States – and things have been going steadily downhill ever since.
Beware of anyone – inside the church or out – proposing “change” or “renewal” – especially when they refuse to provide detailed specifics.
