How Can Any Believing Catholic Accept Apostates as Catholics, part two is the conclusion of a two-part series examining the rapid degeneration of events in a false church, the counterfeit church of conciliarism, that mirrors the degeneration of events in the world-at-large.

The conciliar revolutionaries pat themselves on the back for their “progress” of “reconciliation” with the world, heedless of how this “progress” has offended the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity, and harmed the souls redeemed by every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ during His Passion and Death on the wood of the Holy Cross on Good Friday. It is indeed quite a mystery how any believing Catholic can continue to accept these apostates as Catholics, no less legitimate officials of the Catholic Church, in the face of so much evidence of their apostate nature.

By the way, the webmaster of the Call Me Jorge website informed me four days ago now that over three hundred people accessed his own site from this one. This prompted me to react as follows: “Three hundred people? Where are these cheapskates, these skinflints, these tightwads, these penny-pinching freeloaders?”

Mind you, one has to be a New Yorker to understand how we use such terms freely. Such terms of endearment may be “offensive” to those outside of the New York City-Long Island metropolitan area. However, New Yorkers regularly salute each other with offhanded comments such as “Ah, ya bum, ya” (See Pretzel Mary for such kindnesses as “Ah, ya cheap bum, ya” and “Ya want a couple of kind words? Drop dead”). “Pretzel Mary” played off a caricature of how New Yorkers engage in a lively give-and-take with others, including complete strangers.

Obviously, such banter is not easily understood by those who did not grow up with it. And, yes, there are times when this kind of sarcasm is employed to communicate a message. The message in this instance is as follows: if there are three hundred people out there reading a particular article, this means that there are enough people to make a five to ten dollar non-tax-deductible gift each month to support this work’s continuation. The burden should not have to fall on the seven people who are keeping this site afloat at this time.

Unlike the fictional Pretzel Mary, who sold pretzels in Crotona Park in The Bronx during the day, dressed in shabby clothing, but was a millionairess from her real-estate holdings, we have no fortune stuffed into our furniture, which is why it would very useful if more readers used the icon below each month, starting right now.

Thank you.
