Mike:  Someone sent me this letter that was written on Friday, from Bishop Francis X. DiLorenzo, Bishop of the Diocese of Richmond, Virginia, and Bishop Paul S. Loverde, Bishop of the Diocese of Arlington and State Chaplain of the Virginia State Council of the Knights of Columbus.  I bring this up because this is something that is missing and has been missing, and that is leadership, ecclesiastical leadership.  If the bishops are going to lead and then hopefully inspire the priests and any laity to follow suit, then the proverbial gooses are cooked, or souls as gooses are cooked.  This is the problem with modernity.  Modernity says, like many of you like to quote to me all the time, [mocking] “You keep your religion separate from my politics.  I don’t want your religion in my politics.”  We’ve got the order totally backwards.  I would say you keep your politics out of the transcendent laws of Almighty God.  How about that?  When you begin to contravene those, this is where the trouble begins and began.  Modern man continues to compound error with error.  Everything, or most things, in our public lives and public discourses are erroneous.  They are based upon prior errors.

I’ll give you an example.  This is why the concept of just war sounds so foreign to most of you, to most of us.  It would have sounded foreign to me five years ago, too.  That’s why it sounds so foreign.  That’s why you so vehemently reject it, can’t understand it, why would anyone promote it, you’re an idiot and an imbecile, you’re a pacifist, hate the military, all things that aren’t true.  But that’s why, because it’s based upon error.  If man is supposed to be humble, and if Christ told us to be humble and meek and follow Me, humanity should be the sum total of that humbleness and humility.  Why is it such a hard concept to grasp?

Here’s an update.  This is how things ought to go.  This applies to the political as well.  When Republicans in high position, or low position, commit error – it doesn’t have to be ecclesiastical error.  It could be error when it comes to the Constitution, when it comes to your oath of office, when it comes to many things that you’re called to do on a daily basis.

We fully support the Catholic principle of subsidiarity, which promotes decision-making taking place at the local level whenever possible.

Mike:  Folks, most of you listening right now support subsidiarity when it comes to government.  That’s why you’re a republican.  That’s why little Jimmy Madison, whose birthday it is today, supported it.  Subsidiarity brings it close.  It puts it in the control of the people, as Jefferson said, it directly affects.  But note it’s subsidiarity, sub, Latin for under.  If you’re familiar with the Nicene Creed, sub Pontio Pilato is under Pontius Pilate in English.  When we use the word sub, that means we’re under.  Super means above.  Just thought I’d throw some language in there.

However, the decision of the local council to invite the Governor to be the Grand Marshal does not reflect the stance of the Knights of Columbus international order, the Bishops of the Dioceses of Richmond or Arlington, or the Catholic Church. In addition, we support the local parish, Catholic schools and entities that have decided that, in this case, adhering to their faith means withdrawing from the parade.

[end reading]

Mike:  Look at the governor.  His selfishness in accepting the invitation has now ruined the parade for all the little kids that were going to go to it.

  • Mike,

    I have been listening to you for 4 years now. I know you are a thoughtful and intelligent person who researches every point you talk about in politics as well as life. I have recently “unplugged the matrix cable” but not for political reasons. It is your witness to truth via the Magisterium of the “One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic” Church that has changed my perspective on what I have failed to really absorb for historic truths of the Church Christ founded. Your stated that you had an Epiphany over a year ago and have been consistent in you message since. War, vitriol, partisanship, and failure to support all Life issues, just does not qualify as being a part of the teachings. Because of listening to you and your witness on the radio and through your website, you are impacting more people than you sometimes realize! I hear you stating” IS ANYONE LISTENING OUT THERE” during your time in the morning. I am Brother and thank you for standing firm but respectful to people that just do not get it!! I became a Founding Trading Post member because of your witness and can only say, VIVAT’ JESUS!

    • Thanks, Hammer, sometimes I talk to myself rhetorically just to break the conversation up. My witness is akin to a far less holy version of John The Baptist’s. Thanks is due to the Trinity not me.
