More Than a Matter of Demography
Thomas A. Droleskey
The riots that have been raging throughout France in the past twelve days seem to have abated somewhat. The swath of destruction cut by rampaging Mohammedans is an eerie echo, however, of what happened in North Africa as the Mohammedans swept through that once thriving bastion of Catholicism following the advent of the false religion created by a man who could not accept the doctrine of the Trinity, and whose Manichean tendencies were a forerunner of the Protestant Revolt in many respects. Darker days are ahead for all of the countries of the formerly Catholic world in Europe. Having embraced the anti-Incarnational errors of Modernity, which are synonymous with the goals of Judeo-Masonry, the formerly Catholic countries of Europe are reaping the rotten fruit of moral permissiveness (hallucinogenic drugs, promiscuity, contraception, abortion, perversity) and a rabid anti-clericalism that are part and parcel of the Revolution against the Social Reign Christ the King begun by the devil during the Renaissance and brought to full throat between 1517 and 1789 and thereafter.
A de-Catholicized Europe was bound to come the prisoner of various false prophets, be they the Jacobins in France, the partisans of the Risorgimento in Italy, Bismarck's Kulturkampf in Germany, the Bolsheviks in Russia, the Nazis in Germany, and all manner of socialists and utilitarians and social engineers since the end of World War II sixty years ago. This is more than a matter of demography, however. Let me explain.
Sure, Europe has been on a collision course of a clash of cultures as a result of the changing demographics in one country after another. This collision course is the result of the rejection of the binding precepts of the Divine positive law and the natural law that were entrusted by Our Lord solely to His true Church for their safekeeping and infallible explication. A rejection of the fact that the principal end of marriage, for example, is the procreation and education of children has led to the depopulation of Europe, necessitating a liberal immigration policy throughout the countries of the European Union in order to have a pool of workers to perform the tasks of daily work that would go unfulfilled absent the influx of Mohammedans from Africa and Asia.
That is, the rioting that has taken place in France in the last few weeks is the logical consequence of formerly Catholic countries rejecting the truths of the true Faith as the foundation of both personal and social order. A desire to enjoy la dolce vita in Europe has resulted in childless marriages, a pandemic of divorce, the proliferation of child-care services to "raise" those children who make it to their natal day without having their lives snuffed out in their mothers' wombs, and a subsequent loss of human beings to provide basic services for the increasingly older peoples of countries that have been and continue to be steeped in selfishness, materialism and utter decadence.
The nasty little secret that even professional conservatives do not want to admit, though, is that the collision course upon which Europe has been set since the time of the Renaissance and the Protestant Revolt and the rise of Judeo-Masonry has been aided and abetted by the embrace of the errors of the Revolution, under all of its various titles and guises, by the ethos of the Second Vatican Council, especially as expressed in Gaudium et Spes and Dignitatis Humanae. Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger wrote in 1982 that the Church had to reconcile herself to the "principles of 1789." The late Pope John Paul II spoke endlessly about the alleged virtues of pluralism, urging Catholics to live together in peace with others without engaging in any form of "proselytism." Pope Benedict XVI just yesterday, November 8, 2005, said that the primary elements of "peace" in the world are "dialogue" and "objective morality." No room there, obviously, for the restoration of the Social Reign of Christ the King, a doctrine that has been more than "eclipsed" by the events of the last forty years. No room there, obviously, for any discussion of Our Lady's Fatima Peace Plan.
Let's face it, folks: the immutable doctrine of the Social Reign of Christ the King, defended so ably by Popes Pius IX, Leo XIII, Pius X, and Pius XI, has been obliterated from the Catholic map in a de facto sense in the actual praxis of the Church's daily life. How many Catholics know anything about the doctrine of the Social Reign of Christ the King? How many Catholic priests know anything about the Social Reign of Christ the King? Indeed, how many Catholic bishops know anything about the writing of the preconciliar popes on the Social Reign of Christ the King. I mean, ladies and gentleman, anything?
Oh, yes, the Church's much heralded "reconciliation with the "principles of 1789" has rendered her incapable, if not unwilling, of proclaiming Catholicism as the only way to ameliorate the problems caused by Original Sin and by our own actual sins. Popes must speak in terms that please the Freemasons and their non-Christian allies, using such phrases as "tolerance" and "the civilization of love" instead of calling for the conversion of all men in all nations to the Catholic faith, instead of calling for all nations to recognize Christ as their King and Our Lady as their Immaculate Queen. It is not a generic return to "Western values" that can restore a semblance of order in this fallen, fractured world. It is only a return to the true Faith that can restore an order born of a a restoration of all things in Christ, as Pope Saint Pius X worked so assiduously to realize during his own pontificate between 1903 and 1914.
Pope Pius XI put it this way in Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, his first encyclical letter, issued in December of 1922:
When, therefore, governments and nations follow in all their activities, whether they be national or international, the dictates of conscience grounded in the teachings, precepts, and example of Jesus Christ, and which are binding on each and every individual, then only can we have faith in one another's word and trust in the peaceful solution of the difficulties and controversies which may grow out of differences in point of view or from clash of interests. An attempt in this direction has already and is now being made; its results, however, are almost negligible and, especially so, as far as they can be said to affect those major questions which divide seriously and serve to arouse nations one against the other. No merely human institution of today can be as successful in devising a set of international laws which will be in harmony with world conditions as the Middle Ages were in the possession of that true League of Nations, Christianity. It cannot be denied that in the Middle Ages this law was often violated; still it always existed as an ideal, according to which one might judge the acts of nations, and a beacon light calling those who had lost their way back to the safe road.
The rioting in France, therefore, is much, much more than a matter of demographics. It is a fundamental matter of the rejection of the Faith that Our Lord entrusted to the Catholic Church to explicate and to defend until the end of time and of the influences of the errors of Modernity and Modernism upon those who hold ecclesiastical power in the Church at present. If anyone thinks he has a secular solution to the problems besetting the world at present, he is mad. There are no secular, non-denominational or inter-denominational solutions to the problems facing the world. None. Zero. Zilch. We must adhere faithfully to the terms of Our Lady's Fatima Peace Plan. Anyone who refuses to make known this Heavenly plan for the peace of Christ in this world would rather desire to be considered "respectable" in the eyes of the world rather than to take the risks that one must take to speak up plainly and without equivocation in behalf of the proper consecration of Russia to Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart with all of the world's bishops.
Many in the United States would deign consider our situation here to be far better than that in France. Think again. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice recently praised the "religion of peace," which she termed two years ago, when serving as President George W. Bush's National Security Adviser, as important because it is the "fastest growing religion" in this country. We kid ourselves if we think that the day will not come when resident Mohammedans here will take to the streets in our own country to foment chaos and violence.
Moreover, though, the errors of Modernity in the world and Modernism in the Church are so pervasive that Catholics, who should be the bulwark against barbarism in whatever countries they are citizens, have descended rapidly in the past thirty-six years since the introduction of the Novus Ordo Missae, which enshrines the spirit and the music of the world, to levels of behavior that would make the Ostrogoths and the Visigoths and the Vandals blush with shame. Each time, for example, we visit my native land of Long Island I am simply amazed at the steep, steep descent of the populace there to levels of vulgarity and profanity that would have been unimaginable in my childhood there in the 1950s. We could no sooner settle there, not that we have any money to do so, you understand, than we could in California, the subject of my last article on this site, and hope to keep our daughter (and however other many children God chooses to send us) safe from the influences of a corrupt and corrupting culture. No bishop decries the behavior of our own people. Oh, no, they merrily say everything is fine with the ethos of the Second Vatican Council and build larger palaces for themselves to engage in gluttony and excess. How can clerics who live in plush palaces and spend millions of dollars on their own luxury condemn the materialstic and barbaric impulses of their own people?
The errors of ecumenism and religious liberty have set the Church at sea in her human elements. She is unable to be the voice that needs to be heard in the midst of an international chaos that is the result of the diabolically-inspired belief that men can know order in their own lives and peace in the world absent a conversion of themselves and their nations to the true Church. All the more reason for us to remain on our knees every single day in supplication before the Blessed Sacrament and to the Mother of God, especially by means of her Most Holy Rosary. All the more reason for us to do penance for our own sins, offering all of the sufferings that come our way to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. All the more reason for us to get to Confession at least once a week and examine our conscience, of course, every single night. All the more reason for us to try to make known Our Lady's Fatima Peace Plan with all of the strength that she can provide us. All the more reason to try to plant seeds for the conversion of non-Catholics to the true Faith and of Catholics to the sacred cause of the restoration of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition as the bulwark against the errors of Modernity in the world and Modernism in the Church. All the more reason to purchase and thence to dispense generously Miraculous Medals and Green Scapulars to effect the conversion of entire families to the Catholic Church and to have them pray for an end to the madness of the Second Vatican Council that has aided and abetted the decline of civilization.
Remembering always that the Church is divinely founded and maintained, that the jaws of Hell will never prevail against her, we must understand that the riots in the streets of France, the country where infidelity to Our Lord's request in 1689 for its consecration to His Most Sacred Heart resulted in the events of 1789, can only be ended and authentic order restored when order is restored within Holy Mother Church, when some pope decides that it is time to be faithful to the Mother of God and to bring about a "certain period of peace" before the devil's final battle and Our Lord's Second Coming in glory at the end of time. Let us continue to storm Heaven for this great miracle.
