Back in the day, one of our heroes here at Church Militant, Venerable Abb. Fulton Sheen, correctly observed: “The world is rapidly being divided into two camps: the fellowship of Antichrist and the brotherhood of Christ. The lines between these two are being drawn.
Like we said, that was back then.
Fast forward more than half a century, and it’s safe enough to say that the lines are no longer drawn but rather bright. Notice that Sheen’s own line drawing shows the lay of the land: the brothers share the same blood and are united because of their bond. The comrades simply share the same ideology and are united in their quest for destruction, with a healthy dose of self-interest.
The line drawn between the forces of Christ and Antichrist relates directly to communism – and not so much the economic aspect but the theological aspect. At the heart of communism, there is not so much impiety in itself, but rather an exchange of gods. It is the overthrow of God and his replacement by the State.
Their last obstacle is constituted by the last vestiges of Christian morality, in particular Catholic morality.
For all the blusterers of the left (that would be the communist left, as has now been revealed), it’s not so much about their embrace of atheism, but rather which god. Communists are not atheists beyond the strictest sense. Certainly, they reject the notion of a divinity, of a supernatural life, of a personal Creator and all that. But when it comes to the idea of “almighty” or omnipotence, they embrace it because they see the state as stepping in and fulfilling that role. But we need to break it down even more.
For communists, the state does not really exist either. The state is always run by someone — a person, a ruling class or elites. For communism, despite all the lies about “power to the people”, the state is just the mechanism by which a privileged few or a single individual rules over everything. The state serves as a bureaucracy through which the will of the elite is exercised—nothing more.
Therefore, power, authority and rule are simply transferred from God as he is in himself, to a human who acts as God – hence Sheen’s reference to the antichrist. When Sheen first said those words, the picture was unclear, at least not in many minds at the time. But now it’s quite clear, and the Communist Left is quite open about it.
The final push is in high gear now, and they won’t stop until they get what they want. Their last obstacle is constituted by the last vestiges of Christian morality, in particular Catholic morality. This is why it was so important to infiltrate the Church almost a century ago, to undermine the sacred offices that espouse this morality.
Antonio Gramsci, the founder of the Italian Communist Party, recognized the need to overthrow the Catholic Church because it was the foundation of cultural morality. He said it was not enough to simply get rid of capitalism and existing political structures, but communism should go to the root and destroy the cultural system on which these structures emerged.
The moral system of which he spoke—the particular view of the world—was Catholicism, announcing the truth of the dignity of man made in the image and likeness of God; the truth that it thus grants man certain rights that the state cannot take away from him. If you are a person or a group seeking to wrest control from the dominant order based on Catholicism, then sooner or later you will have to attack Catholicism itself.
And the most striking example currently being played out is the fight against abortion and the likelihood of Roe vs. Wade reversed at the end of the month. Protestant buildings are damaged, burned and vandalized. Catholic churches are under attack. Communist anger at the possibility of Roe vs. Wade impending death is not so much about abortion in itself but rather what abortion accomplishes. Abortion is the highest form of rejection of Catholic morality.
This is why we see all the signs and hear all the songs about keeping “your prayer beads out of my ovaries” and “your theology out of my womb”. Abortion becomes the means by which communists can lock in their power because it totally undermines all goodness. It turns mothers into murderers; militarizes the powers of the state against the poorest; tears from God the power of life and death; becomes a litmus test for a position.
An entire multi-billion dollar industry is created that fuels political campaigns and keeps the forces of the antichrist in power. Of course, something as evil as the murder of children would breed many other evils as well.
The family is destroyed because the hookup culture becomes supreme. Men are “freed” from their responsibility to exercise self-control, and women are tricked into thinking that freedom is their ability to sleep. The whole moral fabric of the culture is torn as sex becomes about pleasure and nothing more.
Therefore, we see the rise of sodomy, the perversion of children by drag queens in schools, and the whole school curriculum based on gender distortion and confusion. It was able to get this far because generations of people who thought it wouldn’t happen sat around while it was happening.
All the while the Antichrist has been busy in political and church circles and there is only a narrow window left to push it all back. That’s the only impetus for Church Militant’s upcoming “Call to Action” convention to be held here in Detroit in late August.
We cannot stress enough the importance of coming to this convention and learning how to fight all this evil – both in the Church and in the culture, especially in the political realm. The goal is to equip you with strategies and tools to fight back in your own communities.
We cannot stress enough the importance of coming to this convention and learning how to fight all this evil.
Everyone attending the convention already knows the peril in which their families, loved ones and nation find themselves, so there will be no speeches and so on about it. We already know. However, there will be experts who have been at the forefront of this battle in Church and culture or both who are now ready to train you to engage in battle.
The world has changed, and the only valid response from the fellowship of Christ is to sacrifice now to rise up and face the fellowship of the antichrist. There is no guarantee that such a distant culture can be saved. But there is a guarantee that not fighting to save him ensures his defeat.
