Liberalism is a Sin, Conservatism is Not

Sorry Cardinal George, but I think I will side with Pope Pius IX and Catholic Tradition on the issue of Liberal Catholicism. As soon as there are no more Liberal Catholics, then maybe there will no longer be need for the adjectives "conservative" or "orthodox".

"Atheism in legislation, indifference in matters of religion and the pernicious maxims which go under the name of LiberalCatholicism are the true causes of the destruction of the States; they have been the ruin of France. Believe me: the evil I denounce is more terrible than the Revolution, more terrible even than The Commune. I have always condemned Liberal Catholicism and I will condemn it again forty times over if it be necessary."
-Pope Pius IX

"If the faithful,despising the fatherly warnings of their pastors and the precepts of the Christian law, which we have invoked, allow themselves to be deceived by the promoters of the machinations of these days, if they agree to conspire with them in the perverse system of Socialism and Communism, let them know and seriously consider that they heap up for themselves before the Divine Judge stores of vengeance in the day of wrath, and that meanwhile no earthly advantage will come to the peoples from this conspiracy, but much rather an increase of miseries and calamities. For it is not granted to them to establish new societies and communities opposed to the natural condition of human affairs; and this is why the result of such schemes, if they spread in Italy, would be this : the existing order of public affairs would be utterly shattered and overthrown from top to foundation by the strife of citizens with citizens, by usurpations, by murders and then, some few, enriched with the plunder of the greater number, would seize on power in the midst of the common ruin." Pope Pius IX

Good catch - I didn't like how the Cardinal stated that either. Thanks for posting this.

Ah France! The eldest daughter of the Church. A daughter turned harlot.
