5 out of 6

5 out of 6!
Hello everyone and welcome to The Vortex where lies and falsehoods are trapped and
exposed. I’m Michael Voris.
Though we often look at developments inside the Church for points of discussion ..
sometimes its helpful to pop our heads up and take a look at other places.
Like .. the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair .. for February. Inside its secular-laden pages is
a very telling piece of info.
They teamed up with CBS News’ 60 Minutes .. and conducted a poll on all sorts of
things. The one that screamed off the pages at us was this question. BTW – the link is on this page.
“Which comes closest to your view?
1) The world would be a better place if there were one global religion.
2) The world would be a better place if there were one global religion but only if that
religion was Christianity.
3) The world is a better place because of its religious diversity.
4) the world would be a better place with no religion.
Vanity Fair then posted the results of answers to that question based on the following
categories .. Protestants .. Evangelicals .. Catholics .. and All.
For the record .. Evangelicals are a subset of Protestants, even though THEY don’t see
themselves that way. Nonetheless they are. But we digress.
It’s interesting when you compare the ALL group (which is a amalgamation of everyone
in the US .. Christians, Jews, Muslims, atheists, etc.)
Among EVERYONE .. or ALL .. religious diversity won the day .. 54%.
Among Protestants generally .. the same opinion held .. 52%.. but among evangelicals
there was a pretty steep departure from the general norm.
While small majorities of the overall population as well as their fellow protestants view
religious diversity as a positive .. only about a third of evangelicals did. In fact .. almost
half of evangelicals thought their should only be one world religion AND it should be Christianity.
A-N-D T-H-E-N came the Catholic response. Yep. You know where this is going.
In yet another stunning triumph for the Modernist forces that have been working like
busy little bees in the Church for decades now .. corrupting people’s minds by expressing
the Church’s teachings as vaguely as possible .. drum roll please .. 2 out of every 3 Catholics .. a whopping .. poll leading .. 65 percent of Catholics .. think diversity in religion is the best option .. a splendid thing.
Let’s zoom in and take a really close look at the total Catholic response. Based on the
four possible answers .. one world religion .. Christianity being the world religion .. all
kinds of religions or no religions at all .. just 15 percent of Catholics thought the world
would be a better place if Christianity was to be the sole world religion.
Re-formulated .. that means 85 percent of Catholics simply reject the idea of the
superiority of Christianity. This is an impossible situation to square with Our Blessed
Lord’s command to go out and baptize all nations.
Heck .. a little more than one in six .. ONE in SIX Catholics believed the world would be
a better place with NO religion! Imagine that .. One of out nearly every six US Catholics
thinks the world would be better with NO religion at all .. and two out of three US
Catholics don’t think there’s anything head and shoulders about their own faith.
Every now and then .. we will hear comments from Church leaders in the US that there
really is no crisis in the Church in the US – problems, sure. Things that need to be fixed,
yea. But NO crisis.
5 out 6 US Catholics have no clue what the Catholic Church REALLY is .. and Church
leaders have the audacity to grandstand and make speeches and offer public comments
saying “there is no crisis”. REALLY?!?!
I guess it doesn’t reach crisis proportions until that number is 6 out of 6! Then we can get
down to business.[Or God forbid - you use the name Catholic without filling out the paperwork].
Well, some Catholics aren’t willing to wait until that happens!
GOD Love you.
I’m Michael
