STANDING UP TO THE MANIPULATIONS OF TOTALITARIANISM AND DEMOCRACY
When you look at the history of the Church, she can be used for better or for worse by her members and those in the ruling elite. The true Church under the pope has been able to resist these influences better than the breakaway Churches of the Great Schism and the Protestant Communions of the Reformation.
For example, Lutheranism was embraced by the Germanic states because it enabled the governments of this region to wrestle control away from Rome.
King Henry VIII made himself the head of the Church to do the same thing.
During Communism in Russia, the Russian Orthodox Church was so aligned or manipulated by the Communists that it could not be a bulwark against communistic atheism.
Post Vatican II spirit of Vatican II Catholics have so aligned themselves to democratic secularism they cannot stand up to the Obama regime's attempt to redefine religious liberty in this country and to manipulate the Church into providing that which goes against our revealed teachings. In fact it is "spirit of Vatican II" Catholics in the Obama regime who are pushing for USA Government's unprecedented intrusion into the affairs of the Catholic Church.
Aligned with them are the liberal, progressive sisters and their organizations in the LCRW. They work against the Catholic Church and her traditional teachings. First these liberal, progressive post-Christian sisters decried the patriarchy of the Catholic Church and now they decry its monarchy. They really want a democratically led Church that would make us more like other democratically lead Protestant Communions--abandoning all that is Christian in terms of sacraments and morality, especially same sex union and fornication and adultery. They want a democratic Church that votes out natural law in favor of a secular law.
Fortunately both the SSPX and the true Catholic Church and its hierarchical structure does not bend to the will of the people when the will of the people is not faith to God. The sense of the Faithful is to be paramount when that sense is orthodox and in line with the faith and morals of the Church as well as Scripture and Tradition and natural law which is a product of Divine Law.
SSPX poses little or no threat to the traditional faith of the Catholic Church. The LCRW and all those progressive Catholics aligned with its ideology and faux theology and doctrines pose a greater risk to the Church in deconstructing her according to a mindless secularism.
