Traditionally there were two understandings regarding Catholics. One was that you could take the individual Catholic out of Catholicism; that there was a potential for converting to a Protestant denomination for the Catholic soul.
The other analysis was that the Catholic soul was tainted fatally.
None of these two are of any postmodern regards towards the Catholic; nor the Papacy.
How blind even without keen spiritual sight; as to not see even secularly that the Roman Catholic Church is a foreign government; and a shadow government.
So much of the prevailing secular anti-Catholicism is an anti-Christianity; due to the misunderstanding by the unhidden heathen; that Catholics are representative of Christ, or set a Christian example. Religious –the sincere– anti-Catholicism must be understood and reengaged if we are to be of Christ’s faithful stewards.
Praise to you oh Christ.
