The video below from RealCatholicTV.com makes two excellent points:
- Many Catholic bishops continue to praise and even canonize pro-choice politicians (you’ll see what I mean in the video).
- These politicians are directly using their power to undermine Church teaching and to foster institutions that seek to destroy Christianity in the West.
Doesn’t that strike you as a very dumb strategy on the part of the bishops? Sow the seeds of your own destruction? By the way, those seeds will strike hard at many Protestants too, so this isn’t just a Catholic issue.
Some people might take offense that I use the word “destruction” in reference to the Church. After all, didn’t Christ promise that the gates of hell would never prevail against his Church? He sure did, but that doesn’t mean the Church will survive everywhere. He only promised that it would survive, but that doesn’t exclude the possibility that pockets of the Church can completely vanish in some areas of the world. We’ve already seen examples of this throughout history. Northern Africa and Turkey used to be very Christian. The great St. Augustin, for example, was from the region we now call Algeria. How many Christians still live in these areas today? They’ve been largely wiped out. The same could happen to us in the West. I’ll have more about this in part 2 of this series.
