Drilling down through all the social blather by the Marxists, the hatred we see against America surfacing everywhere in the country — the hatred against patriotism — is actually a hatred of fatherhood.
It doesn't matter if it's expressed through screwed-up sexuality on the part of lesbians and gays. It doesn't matter if it's expressed through Molotov cocktail-throwing rioters in Minneapolis or New York. It doesn't matter if it's expressed through attacks against statues of the Founding Fathers.
All of this is a hatred of paternity. Heck, the word "patriotism" itself comes from the Latin word, pater — meaning "father" (or patria, meaning "fatherland"). Marxist ideology has the goal of replacing the family with the State. In order to realize that goal, fatherhood must go. That means authentic masculinity must go.
So now language is introduced into the social lexicon like "toxic masculinity" — which is nothing more than genuine masculinity. Masculinity is strong, defends the weak, keeps them safe. It, of itself, is outpouring. And yes, masculinity — authentically expressed — is found ultimately in God, who is "Father." "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son."
And since God is Father, all of this cultural and societal unrest traces right back to a hatred of God. Notice, the demonically possessed Marxists don't seek to eradicate biological males — just masculinity. They deliberately engineer the culture to reject anything related to that truth. In its place, they manufacture soy boys: effeminate, self-centered teens and 20-somethings.
Even the fashion models held up to younger men are androgynous biological weirdos — more girl-looking than masculine. But the eradication and supplanting of authentic masculinity has come at a great price. This is perhaps nowhere more evident than in the black community — specifically targeted by the Marxists for extermination.
Forty percent of all abortions in the U.S. are done on black babies — three times their representation in society as a whole. Inauthentic masculinity is celebrated and raised on high — power perverted to violence, sexuality perverted to wide-scale promiscuity — all brought to you courtesy of the Marxist, Democratic-Party ethos.
On a recent ESPN broadcast, in a discussion about Black Lives Matter and professional sports, former NFL stalwart Marcellus Wiley hit the nail on the head about the cost of destroying the family by eliminating the father.
Translating that to the Church, where we have men we call "father," they too have been largely eradicated, with the same devastating results on a spiritual level. Emasculated men, exercising the authority of fatherhood without the corresponding duty of fatherhood, have destroyed souls by the millions, tens of millions.
They are so emasculated — even to the point of sounding and acting like women — it turns your stomach. The homosexuality rampant among the nation's priests and bishops is nothing different than the homosexuality rampant in the culture: same motivation, same outcome, same vehicle. They just did a better job of disguising it until they got caught raping teenage boys and covering it up.
Hatred of country comes from the exact same place that hatred of masculinity comes from — a hatred of God and, specifically, a hatred of God as Father. This is why those inside and outside the Church so violently take aim at the Catholic Church. The Church is Mother, and if the link between mother and children can be severed, then so too will be the relationship to the Father.
The link between the two goes all the way back to St. Cyprian of Carthage, who saw the relationship so clearly — way back during the Roman persecutions in the third century. "He cannot have God for his Father who does not have the Church for his Mother." The bond between God and the Church is so intimate that to attack one is to attack the other.
And for the record, all of this will be part of the larger discussion at our sixth annual Men's Conference being held here in Detroit in early August. (Please click on the link and sign up!) Authentic men have been M.I.A. for too long. Your world is falling apart. Step up!
