Just a reminder to Normals in the Church: the illusion that MAGA dominates the Church is just that: an illusion. There are still millions who have not bent the knee to Baal. That’s why we keep winning. Don’t mistake the loud roaring of the devil for his victory. He thrives on bullshit and intimidation. And most of all, bear in mind that the global Church is a much, MUCH larger phenomenon than the swaggering minority of bullies in US conservatism.
The entire US Church comprises 6% of the global Church. And the MAGA Freak show is a fraction of that. They have access to money and cameras and so can cast a large shadow on the mind and heart. But nonetheless, they do not speak for “the Church” and their deep hostility to the Holy Father makes clear that they do not represent the mind of Christ.
We have a lot to work with and the Tradition is, in fact, on the side of Normals and the least of these. That’s why the Cult hates and fears this Pope: he constantly reminds them of the precariousness of their position. Fight the good fight and do not despair. You–we–are not alone.
Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet;
righteousness and peace will kiss each other.
Faithfulness will spring up from the ground,
and righteousness will look down from the sky.
Yea, the Lord will give what is good,
and our land will yield its increase.
Righteousness will go before him,
and make his footsteps a way. – Psalm 85:10-13
So when you see some depraved perversion of the gospel like this…
…perverting Christian forms and images and filling them with pagan content devoted to the worship of the antichrist trinity of Mars, Mammon, and Venus, remember also the words of Jesus: “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.”
This ugly antichrist parody of the gospel may prosper for a time, as so many other antichrist parodies have done–for a time. But it has not the Holy Spirit at its heart and therefore cannot hold itself together. Its lies and internal contradiction will destroy, and already indeed are destroying it. In the end, as he did with the Cross, God always permits us to have our stupid, sinful way in order to bring good out of it. He will not abandon his people.
