Liberalism (Libertarianism) is a sin!Submitted by spitfireatme on Sat, 05/04/2013 - 12:44
There is an old book from the 20th century, before Vatican 2, about how liberalism is completely incompatible with the Catholic faith. It seems to be demonstrably true, and has made me abandon libertarianism.
A few random excerpts:
"Liberalism is the dogmatic affirmation of the absolute independence of the individual and of the social reason. Catholicity is the dogma of the absolute subjection of the individual and of the social order to the revealed law of God. One doctrine is the exact antithesis of the other. They are opposites in direct conflict."
"Liberalism, have been denied, we would find every Christian dogma in one way or another rejected--from the dogma of the Incarnation to that of Infallibility.
Nonetheless Liberalism is in itself dogmatic; and it is in the declaration of its own fundamental dogma, the absolute independence of the individual and the social reason, that it denies all Christian dogmas in general."
"Liberalism is, therefore, a greater sin than blasphemy, theft, adultery, homicide, or any other violation of the law of God, save in such case as where one acts in good faith, in ignorance, or without thought."
"Peace in war is an incongruity." "The monstrosity resulting is what is known as the Liberal Catholic or the Catholic Liberal".
I might do a separate post on this, "Ron Paul: Meet Saint Paul" by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey. He's not ignorant about Ron Paul and about good ideas Dr. Paul has about the Fed, but does take fault on other pertinent issues: http://www.christorchaos.com/RonPaulMeetSaintPaul.htm
