The Remnant has long been an outspoken critic of the false ecumenism and pointless dialogue (for dialogue's sake) that seek to bury doctrinal differences between the various Christian denominations, in the name of tentative and oh-so-human unity.

That situations may arise, however, where religious groups with serious theological differences may nevertheless be obliged to stand together against an existential common threat to all religions, should not be included in the illegitimate and dangerous understanding of theological and false ecumenism.

Pope Pius XI himself, who gave us the great encyclical Mortalium Animos, which lays down the Church’s traditional understanding of her relationship with other religions, would and in fact did approve of Protestants and Catholics standing together against forces of evil, such as Nazism, Communism, and their bastard great-grandchild, Globalism.

When faced with the imminent, clear and present danger of a rising totalitarian regime that seeks to crush all religions, especially those proclaiming any sort of fealty to Jesus Christ, we are content to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our Lutheran countrymen in a foxhole necessitated by current events.

That serious theological differences remain goes without saying, even if all patriotic Americans are now collectively called to go to the aid of their country and to resist those who would hand over our homeland to the architects of a globalist regime.

As this international crisis highlights the urgent need for strong and Christ-centered leadership, it should be the prayer of all traditional Catholics that our Protestant brothers and sisters will come to see that all of this secularist tyranny was only made possible by the Luciferian destruction of holy Christendom centuries ago. 

As Pius XI taught so clearly, Christian unity is only possible through a return to Holy Mother Church, regardless of how she in her human element today is suffering and being persecuted from within and without.  They crucified Jesus Christ, and now they are crucifying His Mystical Body. 

As we stand together against a secularist common enemy, let us be charitably mindful that a united Christocentric purpose can only be achieved through a return of all Christians to the bosom of Holy Mother Church, as founded by Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, over two thousand years ago.
