Can it be permissible to attack Francis the liberal as this writer has so vigorously done? After all, is he not supposed to be the vicar of Christ? Is it charitable to insult the man who is supposed to be the visible head of Christ’s Church by accusing him of the “gravest sins known in the Christian law”?
Per usual, Fr. Felix Sarda Y Salvany provides us with the answers in his book, Liberalism is a Sin. “…very often it is [proper to make an attack upon the persons of those who uphold error], and not only proper,” he writes, “but at times even indispensable and meritorious before God and men.”
Francis the liberal upholds and even embraces error, so it follows that he must be attacked in this regard. Francis has waged a war against the truth, and it is our indispensable duty to crush his proud rebellion.
Does such strong language appear uncharitable? Perhaps a proper definition is in order. “Charity is a supernatural virtue which induces us to love God above all things and our neighbors as ourselves for the love of God…Charity is primarily the love of God, secondarily the love of our neighbor for God’s sake. To sacrifice the first is to abandon the latter. Therefore, to offend our neighbor for the love of God is a true act of charity. Not to offend our neighbor for the love of God is a sin.”
Francis the liberal would have us reverse that order by placing our neighbor first and God second. But we cannot fall into his liberal death traps. If we have charity, if we love God, we must offend Francis for the love of God. We must speak out against his errors, and we must defend our neighbor from his cunning and deceitful lies.
“A disease is inseparable from the persons of the diseased,” writes Fr. Felix. Make no mistake about it, Francis the liberal is a diseased man. Worse still, he attempts to spread his disease the world over. Against such evil, we must fight. How? “When it strikes, let the sword of the Catholic polemist wound, and when it wounds, wound mortally. This is the only real and efficacious means of waging war.”
We are undoubtedly fighting a war, and our enemy is at the door. He’s infiltrated Christ’s Church, and he’s corrupted its leader. Liberalism is the devil’s most effective tool. Never before in the history of mankind has he experienced such success. But it doesn’t have to be this way. The enemy is strong, but we can be stronger. At our disposal are all the weapons we need in order to completely annihilate Satan’s liberal forces.
Catholicity is the only antidote to the evil that is liberalism. Will we embrace it? Francis the liberal tries his very best to prevent that from happening, but who is he? Nothing but a tool-a pawn of Satan. Let us treat him as such and defeat his lies. Francis the liberal has chosen his side, now let us choose ours. This is war.
