We must expect the poisonous atmosphere to intensify as more people turn to satan for their religious beliefs!

So many millions of Catholics have been robbed of the Catholic faith by conciliar popes , cardinals, bishops and priest. Tragic.

Aquinas tells us that joy in humans is a rational delight in something outside of ourselves. Since modern men reflect almost always on themselves it is not surprising that they find very little delight.

Leftists always knew it was a life... they aren't that stupid in this regard. This, there, is why they are truly evil people because they don't care about the destruction of the innocent. Their message or intent is what matters, not the facts, truth or morality.

@Ave Crux You told it yourself "if it were applied and obeyed within a capitalist system". Capitalism is implemented in order to not obey to the Catholic Church's social teaching. And you compare with Communism and socialism as we knew it in USSR for instance, but socialism exist already in many capitalist countries like even the US or France even though people fail to understand that the policies are socialists. Some important thinkers from our gouvernements are now explaining to us that the Communism can be applied only after the capitalism, and not before.
Capitalism is thus perfect to bring atheistic materialism in a society and secularism destroy s better the souls than the body of a believer in a communist country. As Christ told us : "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.Instead, fear the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. " (Matt 10:28) / "I tell you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and afterthat…More

@Ludovic Denim: I am referring to private property and the private ownership of businesses. What you are referring to are abuses of a system and populace free from government interference and coercion.
The Catholic Church's social teaching would suffice to correct these abuses if it were applied and obeyed within a capitalist system. Not so with Communism and socialism which are entirely inimical to the Church teaching and our freedoms as well as a just freedom within the economy.
