How to Negotiate

This post touched on how fratricidal revolutionaries in the 1960s and after have gone about dismantling the Catholic Church's worship, catechism, laws, architecture, music, and anything else that got in the way of a man-centered religion in pursuit of a new structure that had the Almighty reduced to the role of perpetual step-and-fetch boy.

The profound drop in religious vocations; the numerous closings of parochial schools, seminaries, and houses of formation; the profound ignorance of obligatory Catholic belief and practice; the wide-spread abandonment of weekly Mass attendance -- all of these travesties immediately followed the modernizing "reforms." No one on the bridge of the sinking vessel paid these problems any mind: theirs has been a blind faith in evolutionary human progress.

Q: What's the difference between a terrorist and a modern liturgist?
A: You can negotiate with a terrorist.
