New York Times Horrified That Steve Bannon is a Militant Catholic

[The same NYT article also does a hatchet job on Mikey Voris and his Church Militant, of which he/they seem to be clueless (see comment below), although some in the CM combox discern that, and Canon212 headlines the piece as “Michael Voris/NYT combined in attempt to paint Trump advisor as anti-semitic Catholic?”]

“Catholicism is necessarily an adversary faith and culture in an America where a triumphant secularism has captured the heights, from Hollywood to the media, the arts and the academy, and relishes nothing more than insults to and blasphemous mockery of the Church of Rome.” ~Pat Buchanan

Edit: the fake news site New York Times looks in horror at what it’s weasels have uncovered. This, and they rush to cite talking heads in fake Catholic institutions to give what they insist is a more accurate view of what the Catholic Church teaches. They use Michael Voris and his Church Militant as a negative example. There is nothing particularly controversial about what Church Militant or Steve Bannon are proposing according to the Times, but one could see that it might spell an end to the oppressive regime of secularism and deviance if allowed to take shape and come to fruition in the renewal of the Social Reign of Christ the King.

[New York Times] A week after Stephen K. Bannon helped engineer the populist revolt that led to Donald J. Trump’s election, Buzzfeed unearthed a recording of him speaking to a Vatican conference of conservative Catholics in 2014.

In his presentation, Mr. Bannon, then the head of the hard-right website Breitbart News and now Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, called on the “church militant” to fight a global war against a “new barbarity” of “Islamic fascism” and international financial elites, with 2,500 years of Western civilization at risk.

While most listeners probably overlooked the term “church militant,” knowledgeable Catholics would have recognized it as a concept deeply embedded in the church’s teaching. Moreover, they would have noticed that Mr. Bannon had taken the term out of context, invoking it in a call for cultural and military conflict rather than for spiritual warfare, particularly within one’s soul, its longstanding connotation.

  1. NYTimes Profile of Church Militant & Michael Voris

    Author Samuel Freedman interviews Michael Voris

    by Church Militant • December 30, 2016

    In early December, Samuel Freedman of the New York Times interviewed Michael Voris, expressing an interest in doing a profile on Church Militant. He asked wide-ranging questions touching on Catholic identity, the Establishment Church, social justice, salvation, politics and many other topics. The New York Times sent a photographer during Christmas week to our studio to follow up with photos.

    The result of the lengthy interview is an article published in the New York Times December 30 titled “‘Church Militant’ Theology Is Put to New, and Politicized, Use”:
