The Root Of The Heresy Wars
In one hundred years, when the current madness has hopefully already vanished, Church historians will examine the turbulent events of the past, the (I am imagining here) declaration of the Pope as a heretic that happened during 2017 and the long, hard battle that ensued.
In examining the causes, I think they will find three as the main ones, and I think they will order them in order of importance. If I am right, they will do it in this order.
The third most important was, I think they will say, the desire of millions of Kirchensteuer-paying non-faithful in Germany, Austria and Switzerland to receive Communion. Not, mind, because they believe in Transubstantiation, but for reasons of small town respectability (in Germany, “small town” is almost everywhere; even in big towns). These are the biggest block of Countries contributing to the Vatican coffers. Their Cardinals and Bishops carry a weight disproportionate to their numerical, let alone theological strength.
However, this alone would have been entirely insufficient to cause the plunge of the Church into Heresy Wars. The reason why this happened is rather (I think the Church historians will say) the presence on the Throne of Peter of a man not only of great ignorance and obvious unbelief, but positively hating everything the Church is and represents. Francis is much worse than a bad Pope. He is an evil man. He has hated all his life the very organisation from which he has scrounged his almost entire existence, using her to escape poverty whilst despising all her rules, her sanctity, her desire for purity in her clergy and her people. Francis is Satan’s goat appointed head gardener.
Which leads us (and, I think, will lead them) to the real conclusion of all this: Francis could have never been elected Pope without the damage already caused to the hierarchy, up to his highest echelons, by fifty years of Vatican II madness. The breaking of the dams with V II, and the “Spirit of V II” years that followed, allowed a miserable scrounger like Bergoglio not only to enter the seminary, but to advance in the hierarchy thanks to a singular mixture of luck, shameless demagoguery, luck, coincidence, stupidity of those around him, more demagoguery, more luck and, crucially, a climate that allowed him to exist as a priest and bishop in the first place.
Without fifty years of V II we would have never had a Pope Bergoglio. Not even by coincidence, Cardinals’ error, or extremely bad luck. Not.A.Chance.
Vatican II is at the root of pretty much all evils which presently afflict the Church. Actually I would say of all evils without even the “pretty much”, then I can’t think of any major problem of today that does not have its root in it. No, the Pre-V II Church wasn’t perfect, either. But it was a Mercedes S-Class compared to today’s Pontiac Aztek.
The way to sanity unavoidably goes through the termination, the obliteration, the total extermination of V II. All of it. Even the residues, down to the last trace of radioactive dust.
I do not think I will see that day. But in 100 years, perhaps, the Church Historians will.
As for us, we will have to live with the time allotted to us. But we still have a lot to be thankful for, and on this Thanksgiving day my heart is full with hope of a Great Offensive to come in the next decade or two, and of thankfulness for the One who gave us this big, and perhaps last, chance to save the West.
I hope for you that you are the type who enjoys a fight.
This time requires people like you.
