“Rohr teaches that Jesus (the man) is something separate from Christ, aka “the Cosmic Christ.” We discover in his talks that the “Universal Christ” is “Another Name for Every Thing.” There’s no way I can really describe what kind of nonsense this is. Here, read for yourself:
A universal notion of Christ takes mysticism beyond the mere individual and private level that has been seen as mysticism’s weakness. If authentic God experience overcomes the primary false split between yourself and the divine, then it should also overcome the equally false split between yourself and the rest of creation.
For some of us, the first split is overcome personally in an experience of Jesus, but for many others (maybe even most!), union with the divine is first experienced through the Christ: in nature, in moments of pure love, silence, inner or outer music, with animals, awe before beauty, or some kind of “Brother Sun and Sister Moon” experience. Why? Because creation itself is the first incarnation of Christ, the primary and foundational “Bible” that reveals the path to God. The first incarnation of the Christ Mystery started about 13.8 billion years ago at “The Big Bang.” So some start with Jesus, but many who began with the Christ Mystery did not have that experience validated by the Church. They looked secular, humanistic, or like mere “nature mystics.”
Folks! That is not satire! That is actually the way this priest writes and talks and believes, and it has no basis whatsoever in Christianity. Run, don’t walk, away from this nothingness disguised as enlightenment.
Oh, and you can hear “Richard” speak in May on what we less “enlightened” folks would call heterodoxy: From his upcoming speaking schedule: “We know many people are looking forward to the final conference in our seven-year series exploring Richard’s themes of an alternative orthodoxy” [emphasis mine]. Gosh, of course. Who wouldn’t want Richard’s “alternative orthodoxy” to replace actual orthodoxy? I’m sure God the Father along with both Jesus and “Cosmic Christ” are all super impressed with Richard’s new themes!
Rohr believes the Church has blocked our true understanding of the “Cosmic Christ”: That’s right. The Church is not the repository of Truth on earth, but rather the obstacle to truth! Rohr actually said this: “By proclaiming my faith in Jesus Christ, I have made two acts of faith, one in Jesus and another in Christ. The times are demanding this full Gospel of us now.” Um. He is proclaiming new revelation. A new understanding of Jesus Christ. A new gospel. But look at his courage and honesty (sarc): “I think we are all sad to admit that organized Christianity has often resisted and opposed the true coming of the Cosmic Christ. The coming of the Cosmic Christ is not the same as the growth of the Christian religion. It is the unification of all things.” He talks of Hinduism, Islam, and Buddhism…. You guys, I want to say something measured, but my mind is just rebelling after reading this. I need to go dunk myself in holy water.
Rohr denies God’s created order of a male and female reality. But of course he does! He’s a leftist sexual “progressive” who states: “Binary genders (male and female) are more an imposition of our dualistic minds than the nature of reality.” Male and female—that’s a social construct dontcha know, not something real! Thankfully, he says, some Christian churches, like Episcopalians, now bless homosexual “marriage” because their “consciousness” has “moved to a higher level.” Oyyyyyyyyy!! You know, come to think of it, there’s someone else who denies the “gender binary.” Click here to see. (See Article) 
Okay, I’m just about done now. One can only sit in this goop for so long. How about just one more.”

A FEW BLUNT WORDS TO CATHOLICS
A very, very long time ago a pagan Greek philosopher suggested that 90% of you would not like what I’m about to say, but I do ask you to read it all and I pray that you will consider it honestly. First you must realize that we are living in the most evil of all the ages. Read your newspaper. I will take only one example – abortion. We have killed more children than any people in history, and no one else is even in the ballpark! Hitler, Stalin and the other monsters of history must peek through the flames of Hell and gaze in awe and professional admiration at the level of our barbarity. We have found a way to kill children and vote for those who protect the abortionist and we still go to Church on Sunday. We can read from the Bible about the terrible things God said about those who would harm His “little ones” and never connect those words to our own final judgment. I remember being horrified when I read in school about the Aztec Indians throwing children alive into the fire as a sacrifice to their god. How barbaric! But count the numbers. What is the output of the abortion clinics in this country each day? Who are the barbarians? Who are the monsters? At least the Aztecs will have the excuse that they thought they were serving God. What excuse will we have?
As followers of Christ and members of His Church we must stand in opposition to evil! There is a very real conflict, a “spiritual warfare” that the followers of Jesus are called to take up. This is revealed with crystalline clarity in all forms of revelation. God calls His followers to reject the ways of this world and follow him. This warfare is not for the weak or the faint of heart, and many are simply not capable. St. Thomas Aquinas said, “Grace builds on Nature.” That is why the Israelites spent 40 years in the desert. A generation of slaves with a slave’s mentality had to die off and a new people, strong and toughened by the harsh life of the desert had to rise up. Most Catholics today seem to be like those slaves. They are simply not capable of dealing with the truth. And the truth is that the evil that is everywhere in this world is also deep within the Church. Pope Leo the XIII noticed it and composed the “Prayer to St. Michael”. Pope Paul VI proclaimed that the “Smoke of Satan has entered the sanctuary”! Throughout the history of the Church it has always been those who are within that have caused the most damage. Remember that Judas was a bishop and nearly all the heresies that have ravaged the Church throughout history have come from priests and bishops. In an earlier age we were better equipped to deal with this evil and protect the truth. No less a Saint than St. John Chrysostom said, “The floor of hell is paved with the skulls of bishops!”
This evil has festered and grown because it has been promoted and protected by a false spirituality with its roots in the “spirit of Vatican II”. An astounding and diabolical pride has allowed us to turn away from the spiritual values that have made saints for 2000 years to embrace a false theology promoted by a false church and presenting a false god. This new god simply blesses whatever our desires, passions, and appetites crave. This god wants us to be happy and such things as sacrifice; penance and self-discipline are non-values. This is the god of the “group hug”, “we are the church”, and if you complain – “Don’t be judgmental” This “god” is a god of love, but not the burning self-sacrificing love we see on the cross, but a phony and sick imitation, a daytime TV talk show morality, which is preached from too many pulpits and is fooling “even the elect”! It’s a god for slaves and enslavement. It has found a home deep in the heart of the Church and the Church seems incapable of dealing with it!
If we wish to survive these days with our faith intact we should learn the lessons of history. We live in a time when the laity must rise up to save the true Church. This is very difficult because we are coming out of an age when the laity looked to the hierarchy for guidance. But as it was in the time of King Henry the VIII, you may follow your pastor or even your bishop and as a result find yourself outside the true Church. This is not an age that will suffer weak faith. Soon there will only be two kinds of Catholics – strong Catholics and ex-Catholics.
Leave “political correctness” to the false church. It’s time for a little plain speech. Its time for a little truth! There are many homosexuals in the priesthood and in the hierarchy. Many of these are not living celibate lives, and they prey on others. They do not preach the truth of Jesus Christ because they could not do so without condemning themselves. They are in positions of authority in Chancery Offices and seek to add to their numbers by controlling vocations. They organize into “support groups” many of which are not oriented toward celibacy, but exist to provide “contacts” for sexual relationships. Priests are dying of AIDS at an alarming rate and some have even blamed the Church for not teaching them about “safe” sex in the seminary! (How safe can “safe” sex be, when Hell is the result!)? The Church has not shown any desire or ability to deal with this. Recently the Vatican told a priest and a nun to stop giving workshops across the country promoting the homosexual lifestyle. That’s nice. But they have been giving these workshops for 20 long years!! How many souls have been lost and lives destroyed while the hierarchy did nothing! Maybe your newspaper today will carry the story about another multi-million dollar lawsuit involving a pedophile priest. The judgments are so high because juries are learning that bishops knew who the pedophiles were and allowed them to continue to destroy children. Bishops protected the pervert and provided innocent victims for him to prey upon. Bishops even hide perverts by trading them from diocese to diocese like baseball players! (You take mine, and I’ll take yours.) Parents and good priests approach Church authorities with accusations and are ignored or referred to an inept committee. The goal of those in authority is simply damage control and covering it up. Recently I met with a very well known priest who was sent to represent the hierarchy in a terrible case of sexual abuse. His primary concern seemed to be to avoid publicity. I told him we would consider his request if he would answer two simple questions. First – Would he give me just one example of the Church intervening on its own to stop that particular form of abuse? – He didn’t answer. Second – If we backed away and did not make this public and as a result of our choice another innocent person was attacked, would God hold us responsible for that terrible sin? He didn’t answer that question either. It seems that the operative spirituality of the Church has become so weak that it is no longer capable of dealing with evil. It is a fact that authorities in the Church have allowed innocent lives to be destroyed and then have covered up the crime and protected the criminal! This has been done with the thinly veiled excuse that “we must protect holy mother church from scandal”! The tragic truth is this publicity and large lawsuits have done much more to protect the innocent than the Vatican, the National Council of Catholic Bishops or the Apostolic Delegate combined! And (with apologies to Vince Lombardi) the protection of the innocent is not the most important thing; it’s the only thing! If it is necessary to protect one innocent child then I pray that every diocese in the country will be sued for every nickel it has and every sordid detail be put on the front page of every newspaper! The Church that I love and that Jesus promised would last until the end of the world is a Church that doesn’t want to appear holy, it must be holy!
Allow me to return to that Greek philosopher and the 90%. Heraclitus was a philosopher and a warrior. During a lull in the battle he wrote a letter to the leaders of Athens regarding the soldiers he was receiving as replacements. He said that for every 100 men they sent 90 were useless. They were little more than battlefield clutter. Out of the 100, about 10 were fighters and the outcome of the battle rested on their shoulders. And maybe one, only one, was a true warrior. The spiritual warfare is no less warfare, and I believe the percentages apply. The vast majority doesn’t want to know the truth. They just want things to be “nice” and the truth and the demands it would place on them as followers of Christ are unacceptable. I appreciate those who pray but if that’s all you do, remember it says in the epistle of St. James that “Faith without works is dead and has no power to save you!” I would ask those 90% to consider joining the warrior class. You are needed! If you cannot – Then at least stay out of the way. The battle is tough enough without clutter. If you cannot fight this Goliath, at least stand back and make room for those who are going forward to sling their stones. The false charity and empty spirituality of those who mouth pious platitudes over the broken bodies and souls of the innocent is an affront to the martyrs and missionaries who gave their lives to share the true faith. I have seen, up close and personal, the heart-rending results of allowing predators to destroy children, families, and faith. A “drawing room” spirituality does not have the power to fight the malignant evil of this age. Delicate sensibilities must be sacrificed and hands dirtied in favor of a cross-centered faith! We are not fighting for principles or philosophies. We are fighting for SOULS and we must not lose!

“The Roe v. Wade decision also illustrates the true nature of the Deathocratic ideology. The people who adhere to it are no better, but arguably much worse, than the people who enslaved my ancestors in the 19th century. The slavocracy imposed a reprehensible way of life punctuated by murders as a means of cowing the enslaved. The Deathocrats worship death as a matter of willful power with no ultimate purpose but to free superior human power from any constraint but its own.
This marks the return of the premise of self-aggrandizing elitist strife that blasted the dignity, peace and hope of the generality of humankind throughout human history. America was founded on the premise of God’s authority over all things. The good people of the United States evoked His authority to embolden all people of goodwill to unite in forming and preserving a body politic that would continually defeat and supersede such power-mad elitist tyranny.
The Deathocrats’ offer us license to kill our posterity. They seek to harness our lust for lawless freedoms to the task of destroying the just self-government by which we have for centuries preserved our decent liberty.”

Notre Dame De Paris

Early Notre Dame 

“A good architect will use modern materials and methods to devise a roof and spire for Notre Dame which takes advantage of up to date technologies while building a spire that is modern in style, while complementing the rest of the cathedral. The spire should be a graceful and humble accent to the Gothic masterpiece.

The traditionalist will critique such a spire for being too modern. The modernist will criticize it for being a boring replica.

A few years ago in our parish in South Carolina we built a new church in the Romanesque style. When the architect was challenged by one of his peers for simply repeating a worn out and dated style his reply was, “This style of architecture is like a sonnet. It has certain characteristics and disciplines. When you write a sonnet you stay within those boundaries, but your sonnet is original. It may be a Romanesque, but it is our Romanesque.”
