National Catholic Reporter Demands US Bishops Be Explicitly Anti-White

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops recently released yet another condemnation of the sin of “racism.” As is always the case this condemnation was not good enough for the radical left, something which “anti-racist” conservatives never seem to expect.

Writing in the National Catholic Reporter (which bills itself as “the only significant alternative Catholic voice that provides avenues for expression of diverse perspectives”), Daniel P. Horan, a Franciscan Friar and professor at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, gives the “woke” take on the recent statement: it is not anti-white enough.

Horan writes:

“Last November the bishops overwhelmingly approved the new document. When I first read it, I was struck immediately by both what was said and not said; what the bishops did and failed to do. In general, much of what was said is good, if expressed too timidly. [It] acknowledges the reality of systemic racism, but only introduces it pages after first identifying racism as primarily ‘when — consciously or unconsciously — a person holds that his or her own race or ethnicity is superior, and therefore judges persons of other races or ethnicities as inferior or unworthy of equal regard.’ This is not untrue, but it’s far from reflecting the comprehensive nature of systemic racism that precedes and socializes individual prejudice. The emphasis on the personal dimension of racism too easily covers over its communal, structural, institutional and ecclesial nature…

The specter that haunts the new document is the unacknowledged reality that racism is a white problem and that while systemic racism does affects everybody, it benefits white folk to the disadvantage of people of color. Most people know that overt racial oppression and discrete racist acts are wrong. Another pastoral document to reiterate this point is not needed. Instead, what is needed — but wasn’t delivered — is a strong statement with a clear message exhorting those in the position of social and cultural dominance that they must change if there is any hope of a different future

What is needed is a strong pastoral statement that encourages frank conversation about the reality of systemic racism and its long, complex, painful and ongoing history in this country. Pastors must be exhorted to preach about this difficult topic that will certainly make white people uncomfortable. However, avoiding the discomfort required to seriously consider social injustice is an abdication of pastoral responsibility. That racism isn’t just something from long ago in the South or the “inner city,” but deeply embedded and woven into the very fabric of all parts of this country — including predominantly white suburbs, exurbs and gentrified city centers — requires that it be addressed everywhere. Although a serious effect of racism has been the internalized oppression experienced by people of color, racism has been and remains a white problem because nothing will change as long as those who benefit from an unjust system remain vincibly ignorant. It is not enough for the American church to decry the sin of racism; we must dare to name the sinner too.”

It is important to note first that in his analysis Horan does not even attempt to offer any definition of racism based on the Bible or church tradition. In fact his analysis of the issue could have been lifted word for word from a self-professedly secular Marxist journal. This should obviously indicate that Horan’s position is worldly and not at all Christian.

Rather than focusing on the alleged sins of individuals, Horan condemns all whites for enjoying the benefits of “white privilege.” This slander imputes collective guilt to all whites regardless of their personal actions. It is as clear as anything else in God’s creation that our Lord blessed different ethnic groups with different natural gifts. This is why, when given an even playing field, some ethnic groups will excel and others will lag behind. Horan and other rebels against the created order seize on the fact of inequality of outcome and blame whites for the shortcomings of other groups. This is despite the fact that the relative success of different races in America exactly mirrors the level of civilization that these races were able to achieve in their homelands prior to having contact with whites. Because God has ordained that equality of outcome for all races is impossible, whites can always be blamed for any inequality.

Horan comes very close to explicitly saying what the word “racism” actually means: the white problem. The only solution to the white problem is either the destruction of the white race through miscegenation, or at the very least the complete dismantling of Western Civilization through Marxist redistribution of wealth and political power.

The fact that the Catholic Church allows members in good standing to publish such nonsense indicates how poorly equipped Christians are for the struggle that faces us. While Protestant readers might dismiss the case of Horan as just the latest instance of Popish corruption, we must admit that our own churches are in a similar state. Even the more conservative Protestant denominations are painfully slow when it comes to disciplining or expelling the theological liberals lurking in their congregations and seminaries (while the “racists” in their ranks are driven out like lepers). Conservative Christians continue to think that God will bless their sinful spirit of compromise and appeasement, despite the obvious evidence to the contrary. The only reward for their efforts that they will see in this world is the steady advance of faux-Christian Marxists like Horan and the inevitable decline of orthodoxy in every single church.

    Excellent revelation of the final subversion in the churches. A product of vigilance and perception.
    These impostors have infiltrated the churches and were there even the time of Jesus of Nazareth.

    But today the ” sin of racism” is like the pornography idol . I understand they actually have classes in sophisticated California U. worshipping it . Racism is analogous . Its shameless acknowledgement is obscene and the exegesis of it is not unlike the Charlatans on the media , mostly if not all Sodomites shrieking as a woman before a mouse. But for the mortal few , who could be saved it is the obdurate refusal to repent and convert . They pervert the doctrine to them. What is their reward … painless death for a painless life ?

    The church is the ideal place for the dissemination of the new god and the universal sin in a lawless world. But not only as Mr. Pulaski alludes is it in the Roman church, many sermons today are issued from central authority in DC often by “female” bishops to all ; and Baptist Convention of course is with this peculiar , white sin in agreement. Salvation is now miscegenation or adopting black babies, orphans caused from the white man’s sin.

    I feel sorry for children, who are inculcated with this madness . Mental illness, addictions and the growing suicide rate are fruits from this rotten tree of corruption : “it is impossible that offenses will not come , but woe unto him (her) by which they come and causeth the least to offend. It is better for him or her to have a mill stone around the neck and thrown into the deepest sea.”

    An excellent critique Clement. Two more cents…
    “The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops recently released yet another condemnation of the sin of “racism.” – Too bad they don’t release a condemnation of the sin of pedophilia and rape.
    “The specter that haunts the new document is the unacknowledged reality that racism is a white problem…” – I agree, we Whites have the problem of living around other races.
    “…a clear message exhorting those in the position of social and cultural dominance that they must change…” – Yeah, I’d like to send a clear message to those in position of religious dominance, “stop buggering our kids!” I, like Jesus Christ, only wish judgment on these pedos. (Mat 18:6 But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.)

    “…Pastors must be exhorted to preach about this difficult topic that will certainly make white people uncomfortable.” – I’m sure all the non-white priests that saturate American parishes will oblige.
    “…racism [is] deeply embedded and woven into the very fabric of all parts of this country…” – Of course, it’s in our DNA and souls. We are created races to recognize race and to work and worship within in our race. The catholic church is also racist…Mexican.
    “…racism has been and remains a white problem because nothing will change as long as those who benefit from an unjust system remain vincibly ignorant.” – This guy is a wolf (Mat 7:15), stay away! Hey jesuit, Whites have privilege because ours is a society made by Whites for Whites. Browns can get their privilege back in Tijuana.
    “It is not enough for the American church to decry the sin of racism; we must dare to name the sinner too.” – Sin of racism, HAHA. What a blasphemer. Jesus, Son of God, was a race realist; John 4:22 “You [Samaritans, defined by Jews by their racial heritage] worship what you do not know; we [Jews, defined by their racial lineage, Christ especially] know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews [blood line of Promise].

    They create the problem by forcing literally by bayonet , integration. This followed by the invention of the new more critical problem, racism .The solution is not segregation . No! The nice jewish people plan to destroy the racist , who is exclusively white. If you do not like this , racist , then you are degraded to anti-Semite , another creature artificially inseminated by the bureau of liars. This is racism that justifies your death.

    If one ever wonders why people are not attending church… the sins of racism’s condemnation from above pastor, Horan can be heard word for word comfortably at home from sartorially dressed, field hands of any media monopoly who have learnt the same dialectic; but these pastors are better. They have no sin to discredit them . They are both black and belong to the blessed artificial race called homosexual all exalted above the isms invented by the chosen .

    Their solution is always the same. Obey or die! Makes no difference to us.

    It doesn’t surprise me that the catholic church is growing anti-white. Have you seen their growing ranks of priests, non-white and anti-white.? The catholic church is obviously doing its part to solving “the White problem”.

    Proving once again that the National Catholic Reporter is a “churchian” publication and not a Christian publication. It provides a little something for the progressive socialist branch of religion although not the Catholic branch of religion.

    The irony. They want to force an anti-white agenda. Why? Because of racism. LOL

    Somehow I doubt that the authors of this actually believe what they are saying and are simply racist themselves.
