English Protestants began with”babble for the rabble”.
Greedy men realized: “Faithful Catholics have died and left properties to The Catholic Church for a thousand years. The Catholic Church owns a third of the land in England! They waste it on schools, churches, hospitals, monasteries, convents, and accommodations for the poor.”
They realized: “The King suffered brain-damaging concussions from falling off his horse in full armor and landing on his head! He is so addled by that, and third stage syphilis, that he’ll do anything we tell him! Let’s have him declare himself ‘Pope’! We’ll get him to confiscate Church property and give it to us! We’ll become ‘instant billionaires’!”
Some of them realized: “A lot of people take The Only Church Jesus Founded seriously. We have to find ‘reasons’ to show that Catholicism is bad. We must begin by hiring some horny pseudo-intellectuals. We’ll pay them come up with reasons why The Catholic Church is bad!” Protestants began with “babble for the rabble”.
They wrote a new Catechism:
- Everyone who says “I believe in Jesus and The Bible!” gets into Heaven!
- No one should worry about hell or purgatory!
- Don’t make donations to The Church to save your soul. Pay taxes to us, instead!
- It’s our “Christian duty” to take everything we can from Catholics and their Church.
Soon, the lands were given to those who launched the attack on The Only Church Jesus Founded. Lower-level Protestant profiteers wanted land and property, too. A million Catholics were killed in the British Isles. Their properties given to lower-level, local Protestants.
A new, politically-correct clergy took over the old, Catholic Churches. They dressed in the same vestments. They used many of the same words. Their services were designed to be comfortingly familiar. “We look Catholic, so we can get to Heaven!”
They had lost most of The Sacraments. No more Confession and Absolution. No more of the Actual Body and Blood of Jesus. No more Holy Orders ordaining Catholic priests in living link with Christ’s Ordination of The Apostles.
English Protestants began with “babble for the rabble”. The results are clear.
Today, England’s imitation churches are dying. So is England.
