“Opening Shots Against the New Paganism”

“One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World


(political cartoon from the Roanoke Times)

As time allows, I’m still making slight headway in the book
THE LION OF MÜNSTER–The Bishop Who Roared Against The Nazis
by Daniel Utrecht of the Oratory

If curious, here’s a link to the previous post written about this
daring Catholic prelate who took a loud vocal stand defying
Adolph Hitler and his Nazi madness.

THE LION OF MÜNSTER…we need more lions

So yesterday, picking up the book, I read the following passage
from the chapter entitled the same title of this post…
and it was like a sledgehammer hit me on the head—

I’ll let you read it, allowing you to digest this snapshot of
German schools along with The Catholic Church and how each one
clashed with the controlling policies of Nazi
Germany… and I wonder…does it sound familiar??

Bishop von Galen was consecrated and enthroned on October 28,1933.
Just over a week later, On November 6, he wrote a private letter to
the superintendent of schools for Münster.
Schools had received lesson plans “in connection with All Souls’ Day”
to teach “the theory of heredity and ethnology”
in all subjects. The details leave no doubt as to what this phrase meant:
hatred of the Jews.

“Very clearly, the Nazis meant to convince everyone, especially the young
of German racial superiority.

Thus in a letter written to the school superintendent to express his disagreement
to such racial and pagan theories, Bishop August Galen began his open disdain of
Hitler and his New World Order:

“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching and
having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their
own likings and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander
into myths (vv.3-4, RSV),
he commented that “a Bishop dare not keep silent if false teachings
and unbelief raise their head, if what is warned of in the letter
to Titus comes to pass:
‘A word of truth is so much more necessary when enemies of religion,
such as we now see, are fighting not only against this or that
teaching of the Church but deny or falsify the very foundations
of religion itself and the most holy mysteries of revelation”‘

“Whoever undermines or destroys man’s faith in God attacks
the very foundations of religion and the whole of culture.”

Critical Race Theory…hummmm

    I love the Huxley quote, and indeed that is what is happening.

    hmmmmmm indeed. History does tend to repeat itself.

  3. You misspelled “Paganism”. It is spelled “L-i-b-e-r-a-l-i-s-m”. That is where the “if History does not agree with our ideals, we will just set about changing history, because our ideals are going nowhere” mindset.

    Excellent comparison, Julie. Remember that NAZI stands for the “National SOCIALIST German Workers’ Party.” Hitler wanted to create his own anti-Semitic volkgeist religion to replace Christianity in Germany. CRT is the woke (anti-white) volkgeist of the radical neo-Marxist left. And when we see government and Big Tech and the MSM working together to create their totalitarian state we have American Fascism.

      Encouraging CRT in schools, the military, police, HR offices, etc….is an effective way for this poisonous mindset to create an army of followers. Vaccine mandates are an effective way to weed out pro liberty, free thinkers who do not tolerate this nonsense. Both are happening at the same time with increased aggressiveness. Think about it…..

    CRT is so toxic
