The Counter-Revolution Arises. Pushing Back on the Secular Progressive Revolution

The Counter-Revolution Arises. Pushing Back on the Secular Progressive Revolution

This was my “Post-Election” Sunday Homily …

In a reading this past week, St. John wrote: “Look to yourselves that you do not lose what we worked for but may receive a full recompense. Anyone who is so *progressive* as not to remain in the teaching of the Christ does not have God; whoever remains in the teaching has the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him in your house or even greet him; for whoever greets him shares in his evil works.” 2 John 1:8-11

Commentary on the word “Progressive”…

Anyone who is so “progressive”: literally, “Anyone who goes ahead.” Some gnostic groups held the doctrine of the Christ come in the flesh to be a first step in belief, which the more advanced and spiritual believer surpassed and abandoned in his knowledge of the spiritual Christ. The author affirms that fellowship with God may be gained only by holding to the complete doctrine of Jesus Christ.

My Comments…

Listen, in spite of the derision and scorn we receive, what does it really mean to be “conservative” or “traditional?” It simply means we are “staying home” while others are “moving away” … as they call that “progress.” We are remaining in God’s truth, as revealed through Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, while others are “moving beyond it.”

Many believe the “same page” that will bring unity is to “go with the majority.” Venerable Fulton Sheen once said, “Moral principles do not depend on a majority vote. Wrong is wrong, even if everybody is wrong. Right is right, even if nobody is right.”

We are currently passing through a crippling “Secular Progressive Revolution.” In a recent article by Matt Walsh, the popular Catholic writer goes as far as to call it, “Secular Satanism.” Matt goes on to say, “Although most liberals don’t worship the literal Devil, they do worship the self. And Satanism is, fundamentally, the worship of self.”

Nothing could be more true. The “Secular Progressive Revolution” has hit our culture like a tsunami wave. It is enormous, it is devastatingly destructive, and it has hit us with little or no warning. And, our country is left to repair the damage as we recover from this sudden and destructive force. And so, our own counter-revolution is saying …

No, it is not “health care” to kill babies in, what once was, the safest place in the universe … our mothers’ wombs.

No, we should not redefine, for the first time ever, the very bedrock of civilization … the marriage of one man and one woman for the procreation of children.

No, we should not force people of faith to do anything that directly opposes their faith (e.g., pay for other people’s abortions).

No, it is not a good idea to enact laws that makes it difficult for couples to marry and have children.

No, it is not “freedom” to collude with and support movements exposing children to sexually explicit content.

No, we should not put unions, who pay for elections, ahead of the education of our children.

No, we should not support movements that advocate killing law enforcement officers.

No, we should not put our women on the front lines of war.

No, we should not ignore our heroic vets, because protecting our country is not politically correct.

No, we should not support any baby killing and baby body parts selling industry.

No, we should not allow satanic rituals at anything our children can see, including Superbowl halftime shows.

No, it is not okay to denigrate the symbol of those who fought and died for our freedom – the flag – in order to make a political statement.

No, corruption, collusion and deceit are not acceptable as long as it supports an ideology.

No, grown men should not be allowed to enter the bathrooms of our little girls.

Again, I could go on and on, and I imagine you could too.

This tsunami wave of this destructive “Secular Progressive Revolution” has rolled in while most of us were not expecting it. The choice we must make now is whether we allow it to continue its destructive force, or whether we begin the hard work of placing barriers in its path, while we pick up the pieces and begin the recovery in our country.
