It’s A War
Hello everyone and welcome to the Vortex where lies and falsehoods are trapped and
exposed. I’m Michael Voris.
"It is a war, a culture of secularization which is quite strong in our nation and the
Christian culture which has marked the life of the United States strongly during the first
200 years of its history."
Sound familiar? Like so many Vortex episodes before? Well .. not so fast my friends.
Those aren’t OUR words, although they sound like they could be.
They fell from the lips of Cardinal Raymond Burke at the Vatican.
He also said in a recent interview .. that it is .. quote - "critical at this time that Christians
stand up for the natural moral law. If Christians do not stand strong, give a strong witness
and insist on what is right and good for us both as and individuals and society this
secularization will in fact predominate and it will destroy us."
And the cardinal also thinks persecution may be looming for the U.S. Church.
"Yes, I think we’re well on the way to it." When asked if he could see Catholics in
America being arrested for their preaching .. he simply stated .. "I can see it happening,
Is anyone listening? Persecution. Destruction. War. This isn’t us talking like this. It’s
one of the most holy, respected and beloved Princes of the Church .. not to mention a
very smart one.
There is a crisis of truth in the world precisely and exactly because there is a crisis of
truth in the body of the Church. Not the Mystical Body of Christ aspect of the Church.
That aspect in pure and untouchable.
But in the members .. there is great confusion in proper understanding of the truth .. and
yes .. this absolutely includes clergy and religious including bishops.
The faithful are in a state of disarray because many members of the hierarchy have
themselves fallen into various traps of modernism .. just as St. Pope Pius X warned about
at the beginning of the past century.
Some of the bishops simply do not have the will to battle the legions of priests who are in
rebellion. They lack the will to battle the lay staff they have in their employ in their
The war against secularism in the culture that is threatening to destroy us cannot be
effectively fought until the war against secularism in the Church is won. There is simply
too much pandering and catering to philosophies .. ideologies .. theologies that pass
themselves off as Catholic.
And there is too much bowing to the altar of a misunderstood version of prudence. Those
in charge .. who have the authority to right the ship .. are too tentative to step up and do
what needs to be done.
They are hesitant because they give too great a consideration to trying to appease and
mollify practically anyone and they are allowing a mold to set in that will eventually
bring the whole structure down.
How can Catholics stand up for moral law, when they don’t even know what it is .. and
they don’t know what it is because those IN CHARGE of telling them what it is are
hesitant or afraid or tentative or nervous about saying what it is because others will be
This is no way to run a religion. Heck, it’s not even a way to run a candy store. It is even
less of a way to evangelize a world sorely in need of the truth.
Yes. If Catholics in America are soon one day arrested for preaching the truths of their
faith .. it will have come to such a pass because those in charge were too cowardly to say
what needed to be said when it SHOULD HAVE been said.
Cardinal Burke is not the only one who can envision the arrests of Catholics. When that
day comes .. stand fast Catholics. Pray for the grace to remain solid and not become an
And pray for the bishops of the United States.
GOD Love you .. I’m Michael Voris.
