Writers who call for a return to Christianity always seem to mean some sort of specific, minor, and eccentric form of the religion that very few people actually adhere to.

    Re: Christianity.

    It’s because we are not nihilists. We believe things actually exist. If you prefer, I will instead call for continuous personal and corporate repentance, acceptance of logos and of natural moral law implied thereby, acceptance of our own fallen nature and all that it implies, and of the promise of redemption in the person of Jesus Christ, the logos incarnate.

    And for Jim’s sake, I will also call for legalized wife-raping.

    What Mangan calls a “specific, minor, and eccentric form of the religion” is, that’s true, a minority position in todays Church. On the other hand this “eccentric” form of the faith is THE CATHOLIC FAITH. It is what the Catholic faith was until 50 years ago for 1963 years. Today it is a minority position sure, but it survived. And very few people? In relation to what? From the numbers we are a very few in relation to the modernists and their flock inside and outside the Church. But their power is fading. Today is nothing compared with their onslaught of the 70th s and 80th s. And as is goes for the progressives inside and outside the Church, they are not reproducing. When the baby boomers are gone we have new game and when their children are gone we have better game and when their children are gone we outnumber them. They wanted to make us defenseless by the heresy of formlessness. But the mass of all times was preserved and is now spreading across the globe again, slowly but steady. And from the numbers we top the secular right or neo pagan right or whatever you call yourselves by the factor 1000. At least. And as traditional Christians we make babies, you not. What are you more than a bunch of bloggers eager or not so eager to meet each other in real life? And have some conferences. We are embedded in real life. Preferably we meet each other everyday and sometimes even amongst our modernist brothers and sisters and taste the Lord and work and talk and prey that the evil of modernism may be overcome in their hearts and souls and minds. With results. Results not easily visible in a blogosphere infected by this foremost gift of modernism: indifference towards the living God.

      One a related note, I really enjoy the Radish, but this:

      “the secularist should have no trouble at all with this business of divine right. For “the will of God,” simply substitute Carlyle’s “Everlasting Laws of Nature,” “the eternal regulation of the Universe.” Thus (Wik): “a monarch is subject to no earthly authority, deriving the right to rule directly from the [Laws of Nature];” “only [the Universe] can judge an unjust king;” “any attempt to depose the king or to restrict his powers runs contrary to the [eternal regulation of the Universe];” and so on and so forth. This is essentially what divine right meant anyway.”

      If this helps you, you are already a theist, but have yet to think it through.

      • Thomas Fink says:

        The french revolution liquidated God as summum bonum (highest good) in the affairs of the earthly realm. From that time on even for the reactionaries the summum bonum became something different: the nation, reason, the people, whatever maybe the laws of nature. Because of that all the reactionary regimes since 200 years have failed. Because them also have been built on orgullo, the pride against God.This was not seen by Donoso.

    “It is what the Catholic faith was until 50 years ago for 1963 years.”

    Do you mean the old Catholic faith from which the Roman Catholic church flounced out in 1054AD? Although it’s usual nowadays to call it Orthodox rather than Catholic, it’s still demonstrably untrue that it’s been unchanged for a couple of millennia.

    • Thomas Fink says:

      The schism is not important today. In regard to God as summum bonum the Roman Catholic and the Orthodox never differed. The Filioque Controversy is solved. Like many Popes I agree with the Orthodox. Who said “that it’s been unchanged for a couple of millennia”? Me not. The faith evolved. But there was never a fundamental break with the teaching of yesterday. Look up the Denzinger. There was a continuity from the first Popes to the last Pius. But show the Denzinger to a modern theologian. Then you know what I mean. 1963 was a break, an unprecedented abrogation. And this abrogation has to be abrogated.

      • “1963 was a break, an unprecedented abrogation. And this abrogation has to be abrogated.”

        Yes it was and it must. But that will happen when Eastern Orthodoxy is influential. As in, never.

        Rome has seen the future, and it is not Dead White Males and the Tridentine Rite.

        The future is arena churches, carneval and Third World synchretism.
