No Truce With Kings

The history of the Catholic Church is dominated by the struggle of the Faith against competing faiths.  Currently the Church is engaged in a struggle with a relatively new religion that has managed to infect the highest reaches of the Church:  Leftism.  Dave Griffey at Daffey Thoughts gives us the details:

There is no compromise with the Left

 
So just stop it.  Stop trying.  Like most of what the West has produced in terms of progressive revolutions, the Left despises the world of the Christian Faith.  It’s like the Terminator.  It can’t be bargained with.  It can’t be reasoned with.  It doesn’t show sanity, decency or charity, and it absolutely will not stop, ever, until the Christian Faith is dead.

So it should be no surprise that a gay nativity scene is making the rounds at the same time Christmas messages themselves are banned for being offensive.  Go ahead all progressive believers, non-conservatives, post-conservatives, non-traditionalists, hipster faithful and all who are trying to find ways to compromises between the Faith and the modern Left.  Go ahead and try, and measure how far you have pulled the Left back to the Faith, and how far the Left has pulled you from it.

It’s tempting to think that if you throw a clean washcloth into a mud puddle, the mud puddle will become cleaner.  Chances are, however, that the puddle will stay muddy, and your washcloth will become dirty.

Unlike ancient Rome, the Left doesn’t seek to round us up and drag us off to the arena.  Nor does it seek to do what previous leftists regimes did in gulags and killing fields.  Like trying to corrupt an upstanding citizen, it seeks to destroy all the faith believes, to corrupt its dogmas, erode its foundation.  It seeks to encourage believers and their leaders to reject the universe as Christ revealed. 

After all, if it can get the Church and its leaders to admit error in such things as human nature, which is visible and able to be seen and studied, where will people find cause to believe the Church where the invisible God is concerned?

The Faith is under an assault unlike anything it has experienced in its multiple centuries of existence.  To miss this fact, or to see the progressive developments as just some normal course of action in the evolution of human society, is to make one of the most grievous mistakes in the long history of making mistakes.

Go here to comment.  Kipling long ago wrote out my policy in regard to Leftists, those who seek to make the Almighty State our ruler forever and ever amen:

Howso’ great their clamour, whatsoe’er their claim,
Suffer not the old King under any name!

Here is naught unproven—here is naught to learn.
It is written what shall fall if the King return.

He shall mark our goings, question whence we came,
Set his guards about us, as in Freedom’s name.

He shall take a tribute, toll of all our ware;
He shall change our gold for arms—arms we may not bear.

He shall break his judges if they cross his word;
He shall rule above the Law calling on the Lord.

He shall peep and mutter; and the night shall bring
Watchers ’neath our window, lest we mock the King—

Hate and all division; hosts of hurrying spies;
Money poured in secret, carrion breeding flies.

Strangers of his counsel, hirelings of his pay,
These shall deal our Justice: sell—deny—delay.

We shall drink dishonour, we shall eat abuse
For the Land we look to—for the Tongue we use.

We shall take our station, dirt beneath his feet,
While his hired captains jeer us in the street.

Cruel in the shadow, crafty in the sun,
Far beyond his borders shall his teachings run.

Sloven, sullen, savage, secret, uncontrolled,
Laying on a new land evil of the old—

Long-forgotten bondage, dwarfing heart and brain—
All our fathers died to loose he shall bind again.

Here is naught at venture, random nor untrue—
Swings the wheel full-circle, brims the cup anew.

Here is naught unproven, here is nothing hid:
Step for step and word for word—so the old Kings did!

Step by step, and word by word: who is ruled may read.
Suffer not the old Kings: for we know the breed—

All the right they promise—all the wrong they bring.
Stewards of the Judgment, suffer not this King!

  1. What is it to them that we have our Faith in Christ? What business is it of theirs mocking, ridiculing and insulting us? How does any part of my Christian Faith affect or interfer with how they live their day-to-day life.

    You know, I would like nothing more than to see Islam dissolve but although I have certain feeling towards Islam, at the end of the day their religion does not affect me in my day-to-day life. And therefore no amount of insulting, mockery or ridiculing will make Islam go away- if left on its own it will self- implode. Maybe not in my lifetime or my children’s or my children’s children’s lifetime; but I am comforted knowing one day it will.

    The left gay agenda and their “I-have-too-much-time-on-my-hands-and-live-a-privileged-western-life-so-promoting-men-loving-men-is-my-new-hobby-cause” has no ounce of intelligence and are a bunch of narrow minded hypocrites who preach this love is love rubbish but know absolutely nothing about love or respect. If the gay knobs lived in war torn Syria they wouldn’t be promoting their limp-wristed rubbish- they’d be too busy trying to stay alive.

    The left hate Christianity so much that they defaced one of the most revered scenes- The Holy Family at the birth of Our Lord- and REMOVED Our beautiful Mother and put Holy St Joseph next to another MAN! They have no regard for the millions of Christians in this world they are sticking their fingers up to.

    I am disgusted by this gay “nativity”. If only it was in my city I would go at it with a baseball bat. I pray some decent human comes along and has the courage to smash the darn thing! The left has sunk to an absolute new low. Absolutely vile. Disgusting animals, not fit to be called human beings.

  2. “Poland has rejected the Left. It can be done.”
    Yes.
    Penguins Fan is right.
    Nothing is impossible for God and those who honor God must believe that.
    Our efforts will never be successful if they rely completely upon human resources however united to God, acknowledging His authority, and consistently abiding to his call for holiness the shameful Left will be rejected. In my lifetime?

    One can hope, pray and fast. If it is the will of the Father in heaven then it can happen in lightning speed…God’s speed.
    Faith can move mountains!!!

  3. The most catastrophic event in the Church’s 2000 year history was Vatican II when the Left officially insinuated itself into Church teaching like a deadly cancer, a cancer of the devil which results in spiritual death. Now we have the personification of these evils in the person of Pope Francis. Instead of saving the world the Church is corrupting it. We must resist. God help us all.

  4. Good poem by Kipling (of course). 1st Samuel 8:10-18 applies for nothing in man’s nature has changed in the past 3000 years:

    So Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking a king from him. He said, “These will be the ways of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and appoint them to his chariots and to be his horsemen, and to run before his chariots; and he will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and some to plow his ground and to reap his harvest, and to make his implements of war and the equipment of his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive orchards and give them to his servants. He will take the tenth of your grain and of your vineyards and give it to his officers and to his servants. He will take your menservants and maidservants, and the best of your cattle and your asses, and put them to his work. He will take the tenth of your flocks, and you shall be his slaves. And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves; but the Lord will not answer you in that day.”

  5. And yet many of our clerical worthies line up behind the secular social causes of the day on the grounds that we should “dialog and work with them when we can”. The fact there might be one or two efforts in common does not negate that one is cooperating with some whose ultimate aim is not coexistence but our destruction. Pius IX forbade cooperation with modernists and Freemasons (not always correctly IMO) because he recognized the danger of being ourselves coopted by what we oppose. That has not changed to this day.
