WE. ARE. BEING. INDOCTRINATED!!
In my lifetime, I have watched as every major institution has been captured by the radical secular left … The media, Hollywood, TV, universities, public schools — they relentlessly promote the false gods of sexual hedonism and radical individualism.
So convincing is the indoctrination (messaging) of the radical secular left, that they have, literally, gotten away with murder for the past 46 years, as 60 million babies have been pulled limb from limb from their mothers’ wombs since Roe v. Wade, and we were made to feel that this is somehow “okay.” In the lead up to the 2008 election, Obama professed his undying loyalty to DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act). Thanks to the indoctrination of the radical secular left, only 7 years later, so-called “gay marriage” was enshrined into law. One year later, we were “told” that grown men “must” be allowed to share a bathroom with little girls. Now, there are no longer 2 genders. No, some reports say there are as many as 112 genders, and growing.
Just look at what this powerful indoctrination has been capable of “getting away with” …
I write this as a “Spiritual Leader” in these times. We. Are. Being. Indoctrinated!!
For the past 30 years of my priesthood, I’ve heard from both ends of the spectrum. One end: “Why aren’t more religious leaders speaking up against these atrocities?!” The other end: “Why are religious leaders getting involved in politics?!”
I am speaking up because I don’t buy the lie that wants to silence me by “conveniently” labeling these as “political” issues. No, they are not. These are very grave “moral” issues, and religious leaders should be the very first to sound off against these … but, most are not. Why? Because they are more concerned that they are “liked.” Or, they worry about empty pews. But, in the meantime, this soft, non-committal form of religion is quickly becoming irrelevant, as it is eroding at lightning speed.
Archbishop Fulton Sheen once said, “The refusal to take sides on great moral issues is itself a decision. It is a silent acquiescence to evil. The tragedy of our time is that those who still believe in honesty lack fire and conviction, while those who believe in dishonesty are full of passionate conviction.”
So, with as much passion and conviction I can muster, I want to tell you, point blank, what is going on …
This story begins … at the beginning. It’s the story of our first parents “buying the lie.”
The serpent said to the woman, “You certainly will not die! God knows well that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, who know good and evil.” Genesis 3:4-5
And so it has been from the beginning of time … our desire to be “like gods.” This is gnosticism: To believe we have risen to a place that few have (elites), and so we have acquired a “superior” knowledge of good and evil. So, put a few million dollars in their bank account (cultural elites), add a few million viewers (media, Hollywood, TV), add a few degrees after their names (Universities, public schools, APA) … and, all of a sudden, the spirit of “arrogant elitism” enters in. Words like “evolved” are used to explain their so-called “superior knowledge.” Some openly claim they have evolved beyond Jesus Christ. Others silently make this claim by the beliefs they hold. And, of course, they must look down their noses at the “unwashed masses” who “still” believe in God and the Bible.
So, once they “buy the lie” that they “will be like gods,” they are outside of the Garden of God’s presence, and out in the chaos of Satan’s realm … they are disconnected from the “Divine Life.” Now, they are easily manipulated by Satan … Kill babies, destroy marriage, contraception, assault religious freedom, sodomy, pornography, recreational sex, objectify women, etc., etc..
The way back … the way home … was given to us by the very last words of our Blessed Mother: “Do whatever He tells you.” Do this, completely, and you will enter the Divine Life.
These words of the Blessed Mother – The New Eve – run directly contrary to the highest commandment of the Satanic Bible: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law” … in other words, “if it feels good, do it.” Don’t consider right or wrong, consider your feelings. That is all that matters. “Love is love.”
Archbishop Fulton Sheen wrote, “America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance — it is not. It is suffering from tolerance. Tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos. Our country is not nearly so overrun with the bigoted as it is overrun with the broadminded.”
Finally, my brothers and sisters, do NOT buy the lie. The crux is that we are being indoctrinated 24/7 by “the fallen.” There’s an old idiom that applies here: cum grano salis (with a grain of salt). It means that, because other factors are at play here, view something with skepticism. The forces of influence, in our time, have bitten the apple, and believe they possess the superior knowledge of gods. In order to set themselves apart, and above, they must contradict “Truth.” Take whatever they say with a #grainofsalt.
