How dumbed-down liberal politics seriously weakened the Catholic Church and society at large

Want to promote homosexuality and weaken the family? Refuse to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act!

Want to induce people to believe and support anything the politicians say? Dumb-down the educational system and give away lots of free stuff!

Want to seriously weaken the faith of the Body of Christ?
Throw out all the old catechesis
and replace it with social justice work,
financed primarily with government money!

All three tactics are patently liberal. All three tactics have proved to be very effective, and all three tactics were successfully employed by the liberals who ran the Catholic Church in America, long before the liberal Democrat dominated U.S. Government ever “picked up” on them.

The result? Moral and financial bankruptcy – exactly what should be expected when God’s laws are deliberately ignored in a vain attempt to accommodate the proclivities of sinful mankind.

Seen on the web: About the new Mass translation…

As a devout Catholic and a translator­, I am all in favor of the new English translatio­n. How dare we have one Mass when every other nation says another (and doesn’t complain about it). The problem is that we are trying to get back to “The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass” after celebratin­g a “Happy Meal” for years. It’s about time we recognize our sinfulness and ask God’s grace and forgivenes­s. As I’ve said elsewhere, everything else in life is “dumbed down”; can we not elevate the Mass a bit?

My generation did not evangelise enough, says Pope

Your generation couldn’t make up its mind about what it actually believed, so it introduced a dumbed-down liberal revolution into the church that still reverberates (negatively) to this day.

As a result, “CHANGE” came to the Catholic Church
about 45 years before it “came” to America.

“Yes we can” … build ugly churches, corrupt the seminaries, discredit the priesthood, tear out communion rails, banish tabernacles, sew confusion and dissent, “gut” the sacred liturgy and persecute the traditionally Catholic faithful.

Shame on you guys! – Doug Lawrence.
