Several people sent me a video of Glen Beck talking about “The Vatican”.
He is a bit out of his depth in how he speaks about the workings of the Church and higher levels of leadership, but he gets around to the kulturkampf (my word, not his) going on and the Obama Administration.
The video is worth 10 minutes of your time.
He talks about the Obama Administration’s attacks on the Catholic Church and brings in another wrinkle about the State Department that was not on my radar.
A few quotes from the video:
“I believe the Vatican is actively engage in a very different kind of battle…They are in a spiritual battle…They are gearing up for a spiritual battle unlike anything we have ever seen.”
“Catholics. You have to be… you have to understand. Read Ephesians 6. You have to put on your spiritual armor. You are not battling man. You are not. You are battling evil. This is Obama’s way of saying back off and play ball our way.”
He ends with the phrase that I believe several Evangelical ministers have now said,
“We are all Catholics now. Tie yourself to something. Strengthen your pastor, priest, rabbi. Strengthen your those in the Catholic Church. Strengthen your priest. If your priest is not telling you these things, ask him why. If he doesn’t have a good answer, ask the bishop. If he doesn’t have a good answer, go to another parish until you find a priest that will. There is a split in our churches. And you will see it in the Catholics. You must not remain neutral.”
Given the demographics of Beck’s audience, this was pretty interesting.
Something is brewing, for sure.
