Yesterday two young conservative Catholics made a video on the “Spiritual Great Replacement”. These two Catholics are Brittany Pettibone and Faith Goldy. I actually met Faith Goldy in December 2014 when she came to Calgary to do a talk at a Catholic event. She headed a panel discussion with three local Priests. I’ve never met Brittany Pettibone before though I’m a fan of her book Hatred Day, co-authored with her sister Nicole.
In the above discussion, Goldy and Pettibone discuss the “Spiritual Great Replacement” which is essentially the fact that Christianity is rapidly fading in the West and has been for quite some time. According to Goldy, the two biggest groups who have done the most damage to Christianity in the West are the Muslims and the Cultural Marxists.
First of all, Muslims are a trojan horse in the West. Everyone on the right likes to blame them for everything. I’ll firmly say that Islam has played little to no role in the decline of Christianity in the West. Cultural Marxism aka Leftism has played a huge role. Faith Goldy is bang on in this regard. Culture Marxism has succeeded in mainstreaming so much sinful behaviour and enshrining so many depraved ideas.
While Goldy and Pettibone talk for over three quarters of an hour mainly about these two groups, they still haven’t put their hand on the main force that has dimmed Christianity in the West. The Christian Church. Yes, Christianity has been utterly feminized and is not playing it’s role as the Church. This includes the laity, the clergy, the Bishops and even the Pope.
Goldy and Pettibone are devout Catholics who are extremely anti-Islam. However, the leaders of the Catholic Church never condemn Islam anymore. Instead the Pope kisses the Quran, prays with imams in a mosque, allows the recitation of the Quran at the Vatican and invites Islamic leaders to interfaith prayer meetings. I find this to be an abomination. Our leaders fawn all over Islam like it’s going out of style. The following is an excerpt from the Council of Florence:
Moreover, we trust that with God’s help another benefit will accrue to the Christian commonwealth; because from this union, once it is established, there is hope that very many from the abominable sect of Mahomet will be converted to the Catholic faith.
I can’t remember a time when I’ve heard a Bishop say something similar to this. I’ve heard a handful of Traditional Catholic Priests say things like this but no one else. If you believe Islam is a problem, then why doesn’t the Church treat Islam like a problem?
As for Cultural Marxism, the Church officials still opposes it. However, this opposition is with minimal force. We’re losing the culture war across the Western world. Every country that has enshrined homosexual “marriage” is either a Catholic or Protestant country. How can a Catholic country like Ireland have 64% of its citizens vote to profane marriage? The Church is barely offering any resistance to this abomination in a country that suffered under Penal Laws for centuries to remain Catholic.
At about 11:40 Goldy talks about how people just celebrated the 500th anniversary of Luther’s 95 theses and says how it’s the biggest tragedy of the Church. I agree 100% with Goldy. The only problem is that most Church officials don’t. This 500th anniversary would have been a great opportunity to re-affirm our past condemnations of Luther but instead the Pope celebrated this event with the Lutheran World Federation. The only Bishop who I know of that condemned the reformation was Cardinal Mueller when he said that it was not of the Holy Spirit. Before Goldy brings up Luther she talked about Anglicans and how they should come home. Unfortunately few in the Church are extending that invitation. Instead we embarrass ourselves through ecumenical efforts with this institution that was founded by a mass murderer and adulterer who stole excessive amounts of Catholic monastic property.
Probably the biggest problem in our Church that has reduced it’s own effectiveness is the heresy of religious liberty. This is believed and promoted by over 90% of the Church, both clergy and laity. If a Catholic promotes religious liberty, they’re saying that Christ has to come off of his throne and sit at the common table with Buddha, Muhammad and all the other religious figures. Christ is King and God shares his glory with no one. There was not one condemnation of religious liberty by either Faith Goldy or Brittany Pettibone in this video, yet it has always been condemned by Catholicism. Until religious liberty is condemned by a majority of both clergy and laity, the Church will keep losing influence in society, no matter what enemies it faces.
This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. “But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error,” as Augustine was wont to say.
