Cardinal George speaks out -- Aleluia!

Cardinal George speaks out -- Aleluia!

Below is the comment I left at Louie Verrecchio's website.

Thanks for letting us know about this statement from Cardinal George of Chicago. The original text can be found here in a post of the "Cardinal's Corner" on the website of the Archdiocese's newspaper.
-
The article is titled "A tale of two churches".

-
The most interesting thing to me is that the Cardinal does not evoke "religious liberty" or "freedom of religion".
-
He speaks of the young United States of America as a country "that promised to respect all religions because the State would not be confessional; it would not try to play the role of a religion."
-
This language is in keeping with the Catholic teaching of TOLERANCE for different religions without calling for total FREEDOM of all religions. This language does however accept the false liberal concept of the  separation of Church and State.
-
The main point the Cardinal makes is that the State has become a "fake Church". He says, "the State basically kept its promise to protect all religions and not become a rival to them, a fake church. Until recent years."
-
The problem is that in practice there is always an official state "religion". There has to be in order to establish laws on some principles. Up until recently the laws of the U.S. were understood to be based on the principles of Christian morality.
-
Anyway, the wonderful thing about this statement is that the Cardinal does not appeal to man-made laws but appeals to the law of God.
-
Could this be a turning point? Is this perhaps a response to Cardinals Dolan and Wuerl?
-
I don't think this post will be withdrawn due to some protest from Washington or New York.
-
If indeed this is a response (and I believe it it is in an indirect way) then this is just the sort of action that is required. The response should and must come from the bishops and cardinals as I have previously stated.
-
It will be interesting to see the reaction by the homo-fascists. Will they stage protests? Will they attack Cardinal George in the press? Will they attempt to destroy the St. Patrick's Day celebrations in Chicago?
-
And then will Cardinals Dolan and Wuerl come to the defense of Cardinal George?

More quotes from Cardinal George.
-
He speaks of coming white martyrdom:
-
"it also brings with it the worship of a false god.... all public institutions, no matter who owns or operates them, will be agents of the government and conform their activities to the demands of the official religion.... those who run businesses must conform their activities to the official religion or be fined"
-
He ends with this final "triumphal" statement:
-
"Catholics do know, with the certainty of faith, that, when Christ returns in glory to judge the living and the dead, the church, in some recognizable shape or form that is both Catholic and Apostolic, will be there to meet him. There is no such divine guarantee for any country, culture or society of this or any age."
