Check out the link and compare it to what you know from Church sources about what has happened to the Church and to this country. I am sick unto death of news gurus and others trying to reinvent Church teaching and presenting it as something secular. Paul Harvey seemed like a good guy, a moral man, but he was no prophet. Maybe people like Glenn Beck thinks so, but not people who know anything about the Catholic Church. If Glenn really wants to see something incredible here, try going back to what Pope Clement XII said, in the first half of the 1700s. This is cited by Pope Benedict XIV, who in confirming Clement’s bull, listed the six reasons that he condemned Freemasonry: 1) The interfaith nature of Freemasonry; 2) their secrecy; 3) their oath; 4) their opposition to Church and State; 5) the interdictions once pronounced against them by several states and 6) their immorality.
Beck is always telling people to educate themselves, to check out his facts. Well here you go, Glenn. Take your own advice and CHECK IT OUT! Every phase of Freemasonic destruction of Church and state were fully addressed by the popes repeatedly, from the 1700s on, until finally it was too late to do anything about the destruction they had wrought. If the Mormons and other sects had not been so busy calumniating and ignoring the Church; painting the pope and his teachings as feudalistic and overbearing, even outright Satanic, not to mention flying the flag freedom while persecuting Catholics, then maybe they would have been able to do something when it still could have been done. I have watched Beck and his ilk for years and one thing I have noticed: they preach morality alongside ecumenism while working to build up this secular idea of religion devoid of any mention whatsoever of Catholicism, especially of the pre-Vatican 2 variety.
More about this another day…
…and Joseph Smith was a…?
Yep, you guessed it- Freemason.
Hi fellow viewers of Teresa’s site,
My website is finished. One can read my previous mail for additional info.
However, for others I will start at the beginning here.
I am a friend of Teresa’s and she has given me permission to advertise my
own website here on her site.
What is my website? It can be described in various ways. First, you can
learn a lot about it from its name: TheCatholicResourceCenter.com. it is
basically an on-line Library system for Catholic resources. However, it
is more than that in various ways: 1) because Resources is a general term
that not only includes all kinds of media (books, CDs, movies, website)
but even professionals, services, merchandise, it is a gathering of any
item in the world; 2) On the site one can then learn to find hard to find
Resources, or sell, give or lend them to others. One can also make reviews
on these Resources and have forum Discussion on them. 3) It is also a
social network for catacomb Catholics where they can communicate with
others through Forums, mail and other methods. It is a place where
Catholic community can grow and where fellows Catholics can learn, pray,
play and work together.
If one is interested in joining my site, then send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org and give me your first name and I will set up an account
for you. If you do not wish to go through me, then talk to Teresa and she
will pass your information to me.
Note that this site is only for authentic Catholics. However, if some are
simply interested in authentic Catholicity then I can make you a bronze
members which has restricted access but can talk in forums.
May God Bless
Yes Beck is a heretic. He, as well as President Reagan chose protestation over being a Catholic, because he blames God for some untold thing that happened to him. With Reagan, it was his abusive alcoholic Catholic father’s fault that he, Reagan decided to go the other way. I have heard this lame excuse for over 12 years from fallen away Catholics. Father DeSmet (Jesuit from Belgium) was asked by the POTUS to accompany the U.S. Calvary to the site of the ambush that the Morons put on the Calvary. This was very important, so the report and truth came out about how crazy and deadly these heretics were at the time. They still are deadly, to lure souls into hell with their dirty lucre. His family is condemned and will vanish into hell. This is Church law.
Well Beck was never truly Catholic; he was a member of a non-Catholic sect, the NO. Whoever he blames for whatever it is, it is not the fault of the true Catholic Church. It is another story with Reagan.
I must say however that Richard Ibranyi is scarcely the answer, either. As for epikeia, I was one of the early Trads who came out in opposition to this principle as applied to our situation in the 1980s. I have been writing about it since 1989 and believe it is crystal clear that it cannot be invoked in this situation; we have the teaching of a good number of approved theologians on this, so no one else’s opinions really matter.
