but when you look closely at the U.S. Declaration of Independence you can
see that it’s really based in deism, not Christianity. Many of our political

ideals, their “God” was “Nature’s
God”  who
made the clockworks of the world and then stepped back to let us govern it
all with scientific reason.
Taken together, the Declaration

far as morality can be temporarily useful to “insure domestic

of decades, many of the individuals in this country have called themselves

The Pursuit of
Up until now, the pursuit of
happiness has been weighed against the social danger it poses, and,
until now, social danger has been defined primarily in Christian moral
terms. But as this country becomes more and more diverse and the general
welfare becomes less and less Christian, morality will become more and more
relative, and self-indulgent “happiness” will take on more and
more weight in the determination of what can be socially approved.
wrong with public nudity? What’s wrong with legalizing marijuana and
other drugs? What’s wrong with anyone marrying anyone he/she/it wants to marry?
What’s wrong with polygamy? What’s wrong with pedophilia? What’s
wrong with having sex in public? Dogs do it. Why can’t we do it? What
rational reason is there to deny us our rights?”
Well, once divine law
has been thrown into the gutter, anything goes.
We have already crossed the border
of public immodesty, sexual promiscuity, cohabitation, divorce, adultery,
and abortion, and now we are finding that the “happiness value”
of activities such as genetic engineering, homosexual “marriage,”
sexually explicit television shows, public nudity, recreational drug use,
bodily disfigurement, euthanasia, infanticide, and blood lust in sports make
their demands for general social acceptance and legal protection.
Because of their roots in deism and
Protestantism, most people in the United States have not lived
holy lifestyles protected by their love for God;
instead, they have lived worldly lifestyles, and they have
depended on civil law to protect any moral values in society. But now that American
ideology is inclining toward atheism and Satanism, the political
rallying cry is “Diversity!”
The ideology of
diversity, therefore, makes it apparent today
that the advocacy of human “rights” is not only indifferent to
the preservation of Christian moral values, but that it is working actively
to crush them. “Diversity” should include you, but it doesn’t.
“Diversity” does not include Christian values.
And so, even though “we
the people” of the United States have benefited from Christian values
for most of our history, we should brace ourselves for the impending day
when this country, because of its overwhelming contempt of anything divine,
loses the graces of divine protection it has long enjoyed.
He proposed another
parable to them. “The Kingdom of Heaven may be likened to a man who
sowed good seed in his field. While everyone was asleep his enemy came and
sowed weeds all through the wheat, and then went off. When the crop grew
and bore fruit, the weeds appeared as well. The servants of the householder
came to him and said, Master, did you not sow good seed in your field?
Where have the weeds come from?’ He answered, An enemy has done
this.’ His servants said to him, Do you want us to go and pull them
up?’ He replied, No, if you pull up the weeds you might uproot
the wheat along with them. Let them grow together until harvest; then at
harvest time I will say to the harvesters, “First collect the weeds
and tie them in bundles for burning; but gather the wheat into my
In God We
“Wait a minute,” you
say, “the motto of this country is In God We Trust. America is
a spiritual country.”
Well, we can wonder about that.
How can the pursuit of “happiness”—with its narcissistic hunger
for revenge, angry and hateful protest, political hostility and sniping,
sexual perversion, abortion, drugs, violent video games, competitive sports,
erotic entertainment, social rudeness, subversive music, tattoos, junk food,
and contempt of the holy—be spiritual?
I predict that in the not-too-distant
future the lawmakers may rule that “In God We Trust” must be purged
from all our money. If the politicians of diversity finally do that, what will
this produce? Nothing but more and more weeds for the fire.
Holiness is a
But the truth is, none of this
really affects the Church, because real Christianity is not a
political system. Christ warned us over and over
that His true followers would be hated by the world because of Him. He warned
us that true faith necessitates a
complete break with the apostasy and immorality
of popular culture. True faith requires personal
witness, not political arguing and
Some persons believe that they have liberal
ideological standards to uphold in defiance of their political rivals, but the hatred
in their hearts that calls for bullying, heckling, and harassment makes them worse
sinners than any of the persons they despise.
This shows that the ideology
of “social tolerance” is all a fraud and just a mask that hides deep
unconscious hate and anger. In fact,
the intolerance and hate behind the mask of tolerance is eerily similar to the Nazi
ideology such persons purport to reject.
we reach the ultimate irony that protesting the fraud of the world only makes
you part of the fraud. Using hate to protest anything only stains you with
Sadly, many souls will be lost because
of the Satanic lie that
sin can be politically justified; the burden is on bishops
and priests to preach the truth about Christian
identity, on parents to raise
their children in the true faith through
education and heartfelt
example, and on those who call themselves Christian
to live the truth—and witness it—through the
example of a holy lifestyle that reveres Catholic tradition.
And yet most so-called Catholic politicians resist the rights and the teaching authority
of the Church.
Imagine if all
the Catholics in the world refused to use social media,
refused to buy newspapers and magazines, and refused to watch
movies and competitive sporting
events. The message would be clear: Catholic money has a voice. But right now,
Catholic money is no better than the mud it wallows in.
We’re in the mess we’re
in now because Christians have been lazy and complacent and have taken the
Faith for granted, relying on politics rather than on God to protect them.
It’s worth repeating: The
struggle for holiness is a profound personal struggle.
There is no other path to the Kingdom of Heaven. It is not for the faint-hearted
or the complacent.
So why get upset that most of
the people in the world have no concept of morality when most of the people
in the Catholic Church today do not live the faith from their hearts in every
moment but look upon Catholicism mainly as a social identity and have little
concept of the real meaning of Christianity?
Our government has now been taken over by
diabolical powers of hate; hatred is evil, and evil cannot be fought with politics.
There is no crime that is beneath the “dignity” of a demon. The only force that can
overcome demons is spiritual purity, and so that must be our
primary weapon on the battleground. Only with spiritual purity can anyone recognize the
fraud and the lies that assault us constantly and that, to save our souls, we must
resolutely resist. Sadly, those who are able to fight such a battle today are few and far
between; the Church is lukewarm and filled with hypocrites.
Even most priests today are incapable of engaging in such a battle—that is, they are
untrained or unwilling, or both. America is on the slippery slope to doom, and only those
who seek the spark of truth in the darkness can avoid being
snatched by demons.
Let the wicked
continue in their wicked ways, the depraved in their depravity! The virtuous
must live on in their virtue and the holy ones in their holiness!

privately said to Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau, Jr., and a Catholic
appointee, Leo Crowley, “You know this is a Protestant country, and
the Catholics and Jews are here under sufferance.” See The Conquerors:

3. Masons often claim that they
are not anti-Christian, but this is just a lie, carefully crafted to deceive
the general public, so as to shield themselves from the dark mysteries they
practice in secret. Far from being based in the true Mystery of Christ’s
Body and Blood, their mysteries, which exclude women and include homosexual
perversions, are based in the cabala (also called
kabbala), an occult Jewish philosophy. Occultism functions on the premise
that what you know will give you power to control
affairs of the world; it rejects all faith in Jesus the Christ (Christ means
“the Anointed,” that is, the Messiah) who will lead us to God the
Father if we live our lives so as to reject
sin and to bear
fruit according to His commandments of love. So
how can the denial of Jesus as the Christ—whether in principle
or in secret mockery—not be anti-Christian?
4. “When in the Course of
human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political
bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers
of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature
and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of
mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to
the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created
equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that
among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” (The beginning
of the unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, July 4,
Keep in mind that Christianity has nothing to do with
“happiness.” The word happiness derives from the word hap,
which means “chance,” so happiness means “good fortune” or “good luck.” But nothing
in God’s creation occurs by chance; everything is in accord with God’s will.
Therefore, Christianity is all about total dependence on God.
