Western Civilization, built by saints and scholars, is being de-Christianized, with Joe Biden leading the charge.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has issued carefully worded statements regarding Biden's ascent to the presidency, but very few bishops are calling him out.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the ex-papal ambassador to the United States, is one of them.
In a Jan. 1 letter, he called Joe Biden a "self-styled Catholic" who is "subservient to the globalist ideology and its perverse, anti-human, antichristic, infernal agenda."
He noted the "children of light" are "held hostage" by deep State operatives who "often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media" — and by those who aid the deep State "either out of self-interest or fearfulness."
In an October letter to President Trump, Viganò asserted the United States is in a "historical moment," where "the forces of evil [are] aligned in a battle without quarter against the forces of good."
"We see heads of nations and religious leaders pandering to this suicide of Western culture and its Christian soul," the archbishop added.
He also said the children of darkness — "who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money" — are "fiercely waging war against" President Trump.
Besides dire warnings, Viganò is also offering a plan of action:
First of all, becoming aware of what globalism's plan is, and to what extent it is instrumental to the establishment of the kingdom of the Antichrist, since it shares its principles, means and ends.
Secondly, firmly denouncing this infernal plan and asking the shepherds of the Church — and also the laity — to defend Her, breaking their complicit silence ... reminding them God will demand an account for their desertion.
Finally, it is necessary to pray, asking the Lord to grant each one of us the strength to resist ... St. Peter warns us against the ideological tyranny that is daily imposed on us, not only by the media but also by the cardinals and bishops who are under [Pope Francis'] thumb.
