The Last Acceptable Prejudice

Tea at Trianon presents the last acceptable form of Prejusdic, Anti-Catholicism. I wish I had a dime for everytime I heard some one tell me, I (or we) dont hate Cathoics just the Catholic Church. I am the Catholic Church! My Family is the Catholic Church! If they hate the Catholic Church they hate me...

This link (here) will take you Tea at Trianon which will redirect.

I am not posting the article because it should be read at its site, however I present a comment on it below...

The Catholic and Christian religion is very large indeed, and deserves respect; however the influence of various sects harms its prestige.

Think of all the sects who are opposed to our most holy religion :

*Gnosticism, a kind of spiritualist and occult philosophy which encourages liberalism

*Freemasons, essentially based of gnostic illuminism.

*Feminism, a kind of female gnosticism which states that women have no particular obedience neither to Man nor to the Lord.

*Darwinism, the view that evolution is the foremost principle of everything, including morality.

*Mathusianism, a teaching of Malthus, that the Earth deserves to be depopulated.

*Averroism, a teaching of Averroes, that there is a vast separation between philosophy and theology, and ultimately between faith and knowledge.

*Nietzcheism, an extreme form of nihilism that strongly denies the presence of Our Lord.

*Statism, the teaching that the Governement is the measure of all things, more so than the Church.

*Individualism, the denial of any possible social cohabitation, especially that of the Christian society.

*Socialism, the view that social engineering on families is feasible and desirable.

*Historicism, the teaching of Hegel that human history is the measure of all things, which is notably opposed to biblical revelation.

*Marxism, the view that all social existence is summarized in class warfare, where any kind of legitimate power must be dissolved.

*Lockism, an unhealthy exalting of Tolerance, where intolerance is held to be anything that is not politically correct.

*Positivism, which teaches that only scientifc knowledge is really knowable.

*Protestantism, which denies the Real Presence of the Lord is the Nost Holy Sacrament. It further denies the very notion of Sacrifice, most notably the sacrificial priesthood.

*Arianism, a teaching of Arius that denies the divinity of Christ. This heresy survives in the more liberal brands of protestantism.

*Deweyism, a educational view that children must never be given any kind of morality, especially the religious kind.

*Anticlericalism, the special hatred of priests, priestly actions and teachings.

*Anarchism, the denial of any kind of special social order, especially the natural order as willed by God or by legitimate rulers.

*Spinozism, a form of pantheism which states that nature is a kind of god and that we can never know the divine essence.

*Kantism, an epistomological view which states that no reason is reason in itself, thus denying any form of Logos or divine reason.

*Scepticism, a philosophy of David Hume which claims that even human reason is doubtful in itself.

*Anti-papism : the view that the Pope is either an impostor or a medieval despot.

*Anti-dogmaticism : the systematic denial of any kind of Church held belief, any kind of conviction that is helf to be sacred.

*Anti-episcopalism : the rejection of bishops, and the espousal of an ecclesiatical polity that excludes their sacred ministry.

*Secularism : either the public rejection of Church contributions, or the rejection of all lthat is sacred in the modern world.

*Weberism : the teaching of Max Weber that holds that the sacred beliefs of religion are disappearing, or will disappear sometime in the future.

*Sociologism : the held view by many sociologists that society in itself can explain just about everything, without any possible recourse to the sacred.

*Vitalism : the view that life in itself is not sacred but instead can provide a standeard bearer for rationalism and the sort.

*Rationalism : an extreme form of cartesianism, which provides that human reason is either equal or superior to the supernatural.

*Cartesianism : a reductionist view of the supernatural which admits the existence of God, but reduces it to a purely natural or naturalist phenomenon.

*Hyper-calvinism : an extreme protestant view that basically claims that there is not a great difference between sin and grace, because both are irresistible.

There are many more of these, but it is fair to say that many modern thinkers have been anti-catholic.
