On Conspiracy Theories(GREAT article)

A great article about how Christians ought to view conspiracy theories about a one world controling secret elite.

He discusses how both extremes are wrong: The idea that everything is alright, nobody would EVER conspire to subvert the Church/nation, and the idea that EVERYTHING is wrong, every calamity, it's all one big conspiracy with X at the top controlling all.

His call is for Christians to stop worrying about so many secret groups out of our reach, and start open combat with OPEN groups. No point in talking about secret people wanting to harm the family when the Court PUBLICLY is defaming the meaning of marriage. No point in discussing SECRET leaked population control plans when hundreds are ripped apart in your local abortion clinics every month. Right?

I HIGHLY recommend you read this. Great points, not that long. Good article.
The devil has always attempted, by means of the heretics, to deprive
the world of the Mass, making them precursors of the Anti-Christ, who,
before
anything else, will try to abolish and will actually abolish the Holy
Sacrament of the altar, as a punishment for the sins of men, according to
the
prediction of Daniel "And strength was given him against the continual
sacrifice" (Daniel 8:12D).  --St. Alphonsus Liguori, Doctor of the Church

One single Mass gives more honor to God than all the penances of the
Saints, the labors of the Apostles, the sufferings of the martyrs, and even
the burning love of the Blessed Mother of God.  --St. Alphonsus Liguori

One question. Who is the Prince of this world?
" There exists now an enormous religious ignorance. In the times since the Council it is evident we have failed to pass on the content of the Faith.

I guess all the Popes who wrote about the worldwide satanic conspiracy of freemasonry were tinfoil-wearing nutcases?

Good grief, did you even read the article? No where does it ever suggest this.

The article says that the only conspiracy we need concern ourselves with IS THE SATANIC CONSPIRACY, which is SPIRITUAL in nature. YES, humans have made alliances with this spiritual conspiracy, like the Masons, to their own destruction, and they must be exposed.
But MOST of our time should be spent combating things we can easily combat(gay parades in our towns, abortion clinics, the visible parts of the spiritual conspiracy).
