The Catholic Church succumbed about 50 years ago, at least.
What makes anyone think that libwads could destroy the Church when even bad bishops over the last 2,000 years have been unable to do it.
“The Catholic Church succumbed about 50 years ago, at least.
First, the theology after 200ad.
Now the ideology.
We need revival and draining the swamp.
The Church on the way to Sweden.
Evils of Islam
This is why anyone who takes their Catholic faith seriously needs to find a trad parish near them and support it.
I belong to a “regular” Catholic Parish Community and don’t hear any of this ideology coming from our parishioners except for a few old Hippie types left over from the 60’s. The Church will survive this, too. Think more about the many Catholics in countries where they are martyred for their faith. It is happening today. Keep them in prayer.
Conflating Faith with Politics is a fools errand.
The pope, not the Church as a whole. The pope is not worthy to be pope. He should resign.
“This is why anyone who takes their Catholic faith seriously needs to find a trad parish near them and support it.”
Love to, but I don’t think there are any around here.
And probably all mainline Protestant churches have fallen for it as well. We Christians need to admit that the Moslem’s “Allah” is NOT the same god whom we follow, but an imposter, and an evil one.
“The pope is not worthy to be pope. He should resign.”
Resign? Do you know how long it took Satan to get one of his own onto the throne? Satan’s not going to let him resign. Or die. Satan takes care of his own.
Hang in there and keep searching. Maybe there are some Latin masses held in local parishes.
The movement is growing.
Last count there were only 200 Traditional Latin Mass churches affiliated with the Fraternal Society of Saint Peter (FSSP) in the US.
Many of us have no TLM available at all, or within hundreds of miles.
Attendance would require 7 hour round trips and overnight stays. It’s very scary. To receive Holy Communion we endure the vandalized Mass and revolting pretense of even being Catholic. Clearly many churches have ditched Roman Catholic identity and are fully protestant to the Church.
841 The Church's relationship with the Muslims. "The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day."330
3. The Church regards with esteem also the Moslems. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself; merciful and all- powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth,(5) who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God. Though they do not acknowledge Jesus as God, they revere Him as a prophet. They also honor Mary, His virgin Mother; at times they even call on her with devotion. In addition, they await the day of judgment when God will render their deserts to all those who have been raised up from the dead. Finally, they value the moral life and worship God especially through prayer, almsgiving and fasting.
Since in the course of centuries not a few quarrels and hostilities have arisen between Christians and Moslems, this sacred synod urges all to forget the past and to work sincerely for mutual understanding and to preserve as well as to promote together for the benefit of all mankind social justice and moral welfare, as well as peace and freedom.

To be clear...Christians and Muslims do not adore the same God. The difference in Christianity and Roman Catholicism on this issue needs to be noted.
Christians worship God of the Bible.
Muslims worship Allah of the Koran...a created being.
