    Should be interesting to see what happens when the Jesuits respond....


    CARDINAL BURKE, BISHOP SCHNEIDER SIGN ‘DECLARATION OF TRUTHS’
    https://www.churchmilitant.com/news/...tion-of-truths
    VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - In an ongoing effort to rein in current widespread confusion concerning Catholic Church teaching Cardinal Raymond Burke, Bp. Athanasius Schneider and three other high-ranking prelates signed a 40-point declaration on hot-button issues regarding the faith.

    Burke and Schneider are joined by another cardinal and two archbishops take another step in assisting the papal magisterium by issuing an eight-page document on Monday titled "Declaration of the truths relating to some of the most common errors in the life of the Church of our time." It affirms Church teaching on 40 Catholic truths including the following:

    • There is a Hell and those who go there suffer for eternity
    • Church teaching can never contradict what was previous Church teaching
    • Muslims do not offer to God the same supernatural worship as do Christians
    • Ecumenism intends that non-Catholics enter the Catholic Church
    • God does not will the diversity of religions
    • No one has a natural right to choose the moral evil of sin
    • Anyone in a state of grace has the God-given strength to live a moral life
    • Intrinsically evil actions such as abortion or euthanasia are wrong in all circumstances
    • Sexual acts are only moral within a valid marriage and when open to life
    • Christ is truly, really and substantially present in the Eucharist
    • Prior to receiving Holy Communion all mortal sins must be confessed in number and kind
    • Holy Communion can't be given to those living in a public state of objectively grave sin
    • Holy Communion can't be given to those who reject the Catholic faith
    • Only men can be ordained priests

    In an age where the Church has gone so far off the rails, they have to call it like they see it. Burke has teamed up with Steve Bannon, so things should be getting interesting.

    The Fundamentalist Movement of a century ago was a response to mainline Protestant churches that were going off the cliff of liberal theology. The name was derived - chosen by them, IIRC - from their stance that there are teachings that are non-negotiable and fundamental.

    A century ago was when the Rockefeller Foundation (among others) started throwing lots of cash around in Protestant sects to get them to adopt liberal theology. Same Foundation spread money around Catholic universities in the 1960s to get the Land O Lakes document. Before that, Vatican II began the snowball that led to the avalanche.
