About Christ or Chaos
This website, which was launched in February of 2004, continues the work of the formerly printed publication, Christ or Chaos, which was produced in printed form from August of 1996 until June of 2003. Christ or Chaos originated as an eight page monthly when it debuted, expanding to twelve pages by third issue. It expanded to sixteen pages by 1997, staying at that length (with an occasional twenty page issue) until we went to a twenty page monthly in July of 1999. The journal was produced on a monthly basis with a twenty-four page issue from July of 2000 until June of 2002, at which point printing and mailing costs dictated going to a seventy-two to seventy-page quarterly. Six such issues were published between July of 2002 and June of 2003, by which time a grant that had subsidized the printing and mailing costs had expired. This website thus continues work that has been read by a small number of paid and complimentary subscribers since August of 1996.
Christ or Chaos has been dedicated from its outset to the restoration of the Social Reign of Christ the King and the restoration of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition as the fruit of the end of the era of apostasy and betrayal in which we find ourselves at the present time. The whole thrust of my writing in the past decade has been to help people view the world more clearly through the eyes of the true Faith and to see that the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service is founded on a desire to "reconcile" Catholics with the false currents of Modernity and Modernism. Major treatments of Pope Leo XIII's Testem Benevolentiae and of the General Instruction to the Roman Missal have been presented to readers, among other long works such as "Catholicism and the State" (which reviewed the corpus of the Church's teaching on the State). If there is one thing I have tried to hammer home in Christ or Chaos it is this: that we cannot fight secularism with secularism. We can only fight secularism with Catholicism. Alas, the novelties of the past forty years have convinced many believing Catholics that it is neither doctrinally correct nor prudent to insist that the true Faith be seen as the solution to all personal and social problems.
Christ or Chaos was created in 1996 to give air to many articles of mine that did not meet with the editorial approval of a major national Catholic newspaper. Although our subscribership was loyal, it never exceeded over 300 paid subscribers at any time in the journal's printed life. A lot of subscribers expressed dissatisfaction over my criticism of Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II even though I accepted him, erroneously as I realize now, as the Vicar of Christ, and my criticism of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service. We were down to under 200 paid subscribers by the time the last issue was mailed in June of 2003. I note this in order to alert website readers that the articles I will post hereon will not be written to seek popularity or approval.
Thus, Christorchaos.com does not elicit and will not publish reader comments. My work is fair game for those who desire to critique it, criticize it, attack it, or rebut it in whatever forum they choose to use. The purpose of this website is to provide food for thought and reflection. Christ or Chaos was not as a printed journal-and will not be as a website-a public marketplace of disparate ideas. There are plenty of websites and journals where disparate voices can make themselves heard.
The links provided on this site are included to guide readers to good traditional Catholic sources. I do not agree always with everything that is on some of the sites that are linked hereto. However, the links are provided because those who run the sites are committed traditionalists who understand that God is best worshiped and human souls better sanctified in the Mass of our fathers than in the synthetic concoction known as the Novus Ordo Missae. Links to articles of mine that have run on the Daily Catholic, Remnant, Seattle Catholic, and Griffin Internet Syndicate websites will also be provided from time to time.
It is to Our Lady, therefore, that the work of Christ or Chaos and of all of our educational endeaovors in behalf Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen are entirely dedicated. She is the vessel through which the Word was made Flesh and dwelt amongst us. She is the vessel through which flows all of the graces won for sinful men on the wood of the Holy Cross by her Divine Son as He paid back in His Sacred Humanity what was owed to Him in His Infinity as God: the debt of sin. It is to advance her reign as our Immaculate Queen that this work is entrusted, understanding that it will not be until some true Pope actually consecrates Russia to Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart with all of the world's bishops that the errors or Russia, which are the errors of modernity, will cease and the Reign of Mary Immaculate will begin.
