The erudite Fr. Felix Salvany, in his classic book "Liberalism is a Sin", outlined the body (group) of Antichrist's main arms of attack, in its unceasing war waged against the Body (group) of Christ - which are:
1. Corruption of morals. Via the theater (movies, television), literature (books, magazines).
2. Journalism. The influence exercised by the liberal press.
3. General ignorance in matters of religion.
4. Secular education.
Note: Fr. Salvany says secular education is the most effective
weapon [crushing of the innocent before they can walk] used by our foes. In this post TCW is highlighting the following stratagem utilized by the Enemies of the Cross, against Catholic Order. ... Fr. Salvany's writes:
3. General ignorance in matters of religion. In weaving its meshes around the people, Liberalism has
applied itself to the task of cutting them off from all communication with that alone which is able to lay bare its imposture - the Church. For the past hundred years Liberalism has striven to paralyze the action of the
Church, to render her mute ... . The Liberals themselves have avowed this to be their aim. To destroy the religious life, to place every hindrance possible in the way of Catholic teaching, to ridicule the clergy and to deprive
them of their prestige. ...
Freemasonry in Europe and South America are constantly seeking to bind her hand and foot that she may be put at its satanic mercy. By open and secret
means this organization has sought to undermine her discipline in every country where it has obtained a footing. Between her and the people it seeks to dig a deeper and deeper abyss of hate, prejudice, and calumny. Naturalism, the denial of
the supernatural, it inculcates everywhere. To divorce the entire life of the people from her influence by the institution of civil marriage, civil burial, and divorce; to teach the insidious doctrine that society, as such, has no religious
relations or obligations; that man as a social and civil being is absolutely independent of God and His Church, that religion is a mere private opinion to be entertained or not entertained as one pleases, such is the program, such
is the effect, and such in turn is the cause of Liberalism."
