Christopher A. Ferrara is still the same - a shill for modern democracy and distributism.
Fr. Peter Scott is a SSPX priest and I have no problem with the SSPX (never did) however when it comes to this point on the urgent need for a true world authority (i.e. Holy Roman Emperor) if you're against the restoration of the HRE then you're in the camp of the forerunner to the Antichrist even if you're a SSPX priest. I don't play favorites.
John Zmirak. He's hooked himself up with Steve Skojec - need I say more?
Here the original post still stands:
It used to be the Jews that were the most active partisans for the coming of the antichrist. But times have changed, we now see Roman Catholic men taking up the cause for the manifestation of the antichrist and here is the reason why: According to Saint Paul the visible authority of the Roman Emperor hinders the manifestation of the antichrist:
And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way. And then that wicked one shall be revealed whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth; 2Thess2:-8
"Only there is one that restraineth now, until he be taken out of the way," that is, when the Roman empire is taken out of the way, then he shall come. And naturally. For as long as the fear of this empire lasts, no one will willingly exit himself, but when that is dissolved, he will attack the anarchy, and endeavor to seize upon the government both of man and of God” John Chrysostom Homily 4 on Second Thessalonians ii. 6--9.
“There is also another and a greater necessity for our offering prayer in behalf of the emperors, nay, for the complete stability of the empire, and for Roman interests in general. For we know that a mighty shock impending over the whole earth--in fact, the very end of all things threatening dreadful woes---is only retarded by the continued existence of the Roman empire” Tertullian The Apology Chapter 32
that after the defection and abolition of the Roman Kingdome, antichrist shall come.
St. Ambrose upon 2 Thess. 2
Is the pope calling here for a worldwide state, with coercive authority, that will govern all men at once? ….On this point I must say respectfully to His Holiness: Not in this lifetime’ John Zmirak
'Catholics have every right respectfully but vigorously to oppose creation of a "true world political authority' Christopher A. Ferrara Remnant Columnist
‘The most shocking and long-reaching conclusion of this positive promotion of globalization on a human and cultural as well as economic level is the call for an international authority to impose it legally, to enforce in an obligatory manner the dialogue between economies, cultures, religions, and peoples as promoted by this integral humanism…..This means the loss of national sovereignty and any possibility of union between Church and State. It means the establishment of the one world order that Freemasonry has long fought to achieve.’ Fr. Peter Scott
