My friend Fr. Stephanos Pedrano writes something that sums up the failure of the MAGA Catholic antichrist sect that we have been discussing the past two days:
The Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 677, denies that culture war victories, political victories, military victories, and other sudden or gradual earthly victories of the Church will bring the fulfillment of the final coming of God’s kingdom.
“677 The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection. The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God’s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven. God’s triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world.”
It is to avoid the reality of the cross that all of MAGA antichrist religion exists. The goal, as with Roman paganism, is to inflict the cross on everybody but the MAGA antichrist worshipper and to acquire and maintain the power to continue doing that without cost or consequence forever. For the MAGA cult, as for the cult of emperor worship, the “proof” that God is with the cultist and against his victim is that he can get away with sadistic cruelty and indulge himself without consequence. It is why Trump is so intensely admired. The Cult want to be him. They do not want to be crucified with Christ. They want to cosplay being victims (as Trump constantly does) while in fact being able to inflict their power on all those they hate. It is a diabolical parody of the gospel rooted in fear, spite, and nihilist power.
