Judge the tree by its fruit.

The Vatican II-loyalist sect is a shell game whereby millions of unsuspecting Catholics were ushered into a false religion with false shepherds who devour the flock, whereas the few who have stayed with the non-Vatican II Church have not left the Church with the Vatican II crowd.

The false shepherds stand condemned for teaching heresies such as Ecumenism and freedom of religion.

They have created a new mass which is a protestantized version which has already been condemned by the Popes and councils, and paring out negative language from the liturgical cycle, overemphasizing mercy and minimizing judgment, each and all to the detriment of souls.

I don’t understand how you can be allowed to tag a post “Catholic Caucus” when the article is clearly rejecting the authority of the Catholic church...

Can we all just define “Catholic” to be whatever we want now? Maybe I’ll say the Baptists are the only “true Catholics” left and tag Baptist articles as “Catholic Caucus”, would that be acceptable too?

What do you call a Catholic who attends the Latin Mass said by a priest who, unlike the Vatican II Catholics, hasn’t rejected en mass centuries of unified theology and hasn’t introduced new contradictory theology in order to become unified with the worldly mind as have the Vatican II leaders?

Maybe Vatican II adherents are the ones who ought to claim a tag other than “Catholic”.

A person that attends a Latin Mass, pre-1958, attends a Mass that was in effect for over a dozen centuries. Vatican II cannot just erase this history and true-Catholics are in this Latin camp.

The “Vatican II leaders”, as you call them, are in fact the hierarchy of the Catholic church, and they are the ones who, according to “centuries of unified theology” get to define who is and who isn’t in communion with their church.

If we instead follow your reasoning, then absolutely anyone can call themselves “Catholic”, based on their own personal definition of what that is. Now personally, I don’t really care much about that, but I do think it’s gaming the system to use the “Catholic Caucus” tag for threads that seem to be rejecting the Catholic church. Maybe make a new tag?

Eh nothing to be concerned about..
.those of us who are Catholic are now getting their posts deleted by those who think we aren’t Catholic. Even though forum rules state otherwise.
