While reading an article my brother sent me from USA today online, I was again stunned by the shear ignorance that pervades the planet regarding the Catholic Church.  And it is such cluelessness,  real or simply learned, that is at the heart of anti-Catholicism, as alive today as it was 2,000 years ago.  Sad to say that most Catholics are ignorant of their own Church’s doctrine, her history, the Papacy, and much more.  There are reasons non Catholics are naïve to the Truth, but for Catholics to be unlearned???  Makes no sense.  Worse yet, today’s Catholics are ill equipped to defend the Church against the lies and distortions constantly thrown at her by separated Christians, Muslims, Atheists, and the like, all out of ignorance. As a proud, loyal, and devoted Catholic who will defend the Church every chance I get, it is sometimes hard to deal with those who seek to tear Her down.  I must admit, I don’t act very Catholic when I read or hear people denigrate the Catholic faith.  So I must remind myself that every single person, Christian or non Christian, who attacks the Church is simply unaware of the Truth, and it is my responsibility to bring my non Catholic brothers and sisters to the Truth, and even some Catholics too.

The United Nations?  Promulgators of Morality?  Seriously?

The article I mention above was focused on a United Nations committee that leveled certain accusations at the Holy See.  Wait, let me restate that; made certain DEMANDS of Rome regarding matters of the Church’s faith and morals.  The United Nations??  An organization that in its 70 year existence has spent 69 years and 11 months being completely inept, and that might be generous?  A college of completely spineless politicians that somehow believe they have real political influence regarding geopolitical issues when they have none?  This aquarium of squids is going to dictate to a 2,000 year old organization founded by the creator of the universe????  Phew, that felt good.  What’s at the heart of these insane demands?  Ignorance.

Here is an excerpt of the USA Today article that I referenced;

“In a devastating report, the U.N. committee also severely criticized the Holy See for its attitudes toward homosexuality, contraception and abortion and said it should review its policies to ensure children’s rights and their access to health care are guaranteed.”

When I read this, I laughed so loud and hard that I almost passed out.  This is pure comedy.  Let me explain.  First, a devastating report…….definition of devastating; “to reduce to chaos, disorder, or helplessness.”  There is no power in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE that could reduce the Catholic Church to chaos, disorder or helplessness, much less the United Nations who couldn’t reduce a 6 month old to tears.  Second, criticized the Holy See for its attitudes…..  These are not attitudes, they are mandates from Christ Himself, these are Church doctrine, these are Truth!  Third, Rome should review its policies………  these are not policies, they weren’t promulgated by man, but by God.  The U.N. should worry more about policies that might have stopped Kofi Annan from money laundering than the full deposit of Truth held only in one place; the Catholic Church.

Ignorance Abounds

There is so much misinformation about the Catholic Church swirling around that it would be impossible to address it all here.  So what I’m going to do is make my next several posts about specific areas where people are particularly ignorant of the Truth.  Look at it as an effort to help them see through the lies and distortions, and come to know the real presence of Christ and the Full Deposit of Faith that exists only in the Church.  I’ll end with this.  Regarding the Catholic Church changing its doctrine on homosexuality, contraception and abortion, there’s one and only one answer; it will NEVER happen.

The definition of never for those at the United Nations…….”not ever, at no time, not at any time, not in any degree, not under any condition”.

  1. BahaMan says:

    Before Our Lord ascended into Heaven he told the Apostles; “All power in Heaven and on Earth has been given to Me” (Matthew 28:18).

    Prior to this, while Jesus was in Caesarea Philippi with the Apostles, he asked them; “Who do men say that I am?” Peter answered; “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God”. Our Lord answered; “I say to thee, thou art Peter (rock), and upon this rock (Peter) I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give thee (Peter) the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:18-19).

    Let no one be deceived.

    The Roman Catholic Church is the pillar and bulwark of the truth. She has received this command of Christ from the Apostles. To the Roman Catholic Church belongs the right, always and everywhere, to announce moral principles, including those pertaining to the social order (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2032).

    It is a part of the Church’s mission to pass moral judgments, even in matters related to politics, whenever the salvation of souls requires it (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2246).

      Baha. You are singing to the choir. Anyone that knows me knows my favorite quote of all time comes from St. Augustine, “Roma locuta; causa finita est”. Said in English to the U.N., “You have less chance of changing Church doctrine than Pol Pot had of winning the Nobel Peace Prize”.
