Ever mention the word ‘monarchy’ to a neo-Catholic? It's like holy water to a vampire.
How about ‘Catholic confessional state’? It makes him see red.
‘Christendom’? Well, that was a very long time ago, he’ll assure you—and, besides, there were a lot of abuses. Just look at how many things for which Pope John Paul ‘The Great’ had to apologize!
Want to know what they’re actually helping to bury with their ‘useful idiotic’ rhetoric so appreciated by the jackbooted thugs of the New World Order? The freemasons? The Deists? The Socialists? The Communists? The Nazis?
Whatever label you wish to you affix to the Christophobes down through history who labored to destroy Christendom, uncrown Christ and erect an altar to the god ‘We The People’— this is what they were actually trying to destroy. It's Holy Week in Málaga, Spain, and it provides a fleeting glimpse of what we have lost — a faith so powerful that Catholics needed streets, cities and entire countries in which to manifest their love of God and His Mother and His Holy Church. Behold the majesty of Christendom, so universally loathed by the anti-Christians of the new order:
This is what they hate with all the fury of hell. This is the essence of the Catholic thing and ever since it was destroyed, the world has fallen into constant war, bloody revolution, and endless terror. (And freedom of religion? Yeah, right!)
If this doesn't make you weep over what we Catholics have lost — what they've stolen from us, what they've ripped from the souls of our children forever — then you've ceased to be Catholic. You are indeed a 'neo-Catholic' and you must come back to the Catholic Church.
God help us, long live the Christ the King. Long live the Catholic Church. Long live Our Mother. Hail Mary, and cursed be the spirit of Vatican II now and forever!
NOTE ON THE WHITE HOODS: No, my neo-Catholic friends, it's not the KKK. We're not in America anymore, Toto. The ancient nazareno or penitential robe for some of the participants in the processions consists in a tunic, a hood with conical tip (capirote) used to conceal the face of the wearer. They were widely used in the medieval period for penitents, who could demonstrate their penance while still masking their identity.
