Christmas holiday decorations inside and outside of government buildings was the unquestioned “that’s just the way it’s always been done” status quo, but tax-funded government buildings are no place for religious symbolism. If Christmas creches are allowed, baby Baphomets must also be allowed. Let the church be the church and let the government be the government. By the way, nothing is more Satanic than this Catholic bishop’s counterfeit false gospel of salvation by sacramental pseudo-grace and merit.
Roman Catholics are required to attend mass every Sunday under threat of eternal damnation. Catholics are also required to attend mass on designated “holy days of obligation” such as Christmas. So two weekends ago, Catholics were required to attend mass both Saturday AND Sunday. How many actually complied? Pre-COVID, only 39% of American Catholics obeyed the weekly Sunday mass mandate.
- Catholic priest told unvaccinated parishioners they were NOT welcome at church for Christmas mass
- Catholic priests condemns vaccine mandates
As in theological matters, Catholic prelates and priests disagree with each other on COVID-19 vaccination protocols.
Canada’s Quebec Province used to be one of the most Catholic regions on the planet, but it’s become radically secularized in response to RCC scandals. Bill 21, passed in June 2019, forbids the wearing of religious symbols by certain public sector employees, including teachers.
Pope Francis canonized his modern-era predecessors, popes John XXIII and John Paul II in April, 2014 and Paul VI in 2018. Bergoglio now proposes to also canonize John Paul I who was pope for only 33 days! Efforts to canonize Pius XII are on permanent hold because of the pope’s controversial neutral position with regards to Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. Saint-making is calculated business.
The year-long “wafer wars” controversy over whether to allow abortion supporter, Joe Biden, to receive communion has brought into focus the lack of knowledge among the Catholic laity regarding the alleged “transubstantiation” of bread wafers into Jesus wafers and the worthiness of supplicants. According to a 2019 Pew survey, a whopping 70% of Catholics believe, contrary to their church’s teaching, that the communion elements are merely symbolic. Many supplicants receive the Jesus wafer even though they have not been to confession in the last twelve months as required. Biden and the 56% of Catholics who are pro-abortion are somehow able to harmonize the genocide of unborn infants with “Thou shalt not kill.”
Angry secularists are not happy with religion in general, but are targeting Catholic churches because of RC-ism’s clerical sex abuse scandals, historical ties to imperialism, and an intolerant view (for now) of LGBT-ism.
Liberal Baptists in pursuit of ecumenism with RC-ism must purposely overlook apostate Rome’s many un-Biblical and anti-Biblical doctrines, including salvation by sacramental pseudo-grace and merit, baptismal regeneration, and paedobaptism.
