(LifeSiteNews) — The Central Committee of German Catholics recently issued a statement in support of the woman, or women,  in Switzerland who committed liturgical abuse by attempting to concelebrate Mass. It is scandalous enough that this grave liturgical abuse happened. However, if this abuse happened only in one place once, one could explain it away as an isolated incident. However, the support of the immensely powerful and influential Committee reveals a widespread apostasy within the German Church. 

One must understand that the Central Committee of German Catholics is the second most powerful and influential Catholic organization in Germany after the Bishops Conference. Members work very closely with bishops in the implantation of the heterodox Synodal Way. Their president leads the Synodal Way Committee together with Bishop Georg Bätzing. Their views are very much in line with the progressive bishops in Germany (which is, sadly, the majority of them).

If you look at the statements of this Central Committee of German Catholics, who purport to represent lay Catholics in Germany, you get a good image of how deep the moral corruption goes in the German Church. They support homosexual “marriage,” gender ideology, women priests, communion for unrepented fornicators, and even abortion. And they support it publicly.  

For example, its president Irme Stetter-Karp, who is also the co-president of the Synodal Way, has said that “a nationwide provision of the medical intervention of abortion must be ensured.”   

Also, its General Secretary, Mark Frings, quoted the Committee’s position regarding homosexuality that “[e]very human being was created by God with his sexuality and … this created being has an inviolable dignity. Sexual orientation is an inseparable part of every human person. It is not self-chosen, and it cannot be changed.” 

“It is no longer written ‘man and wife he created them,’ but rather ‘male and female he created them’ (Gen 1:27),” the statement continued.  “As a matter of creation theology, this marks the fact that sexual identity is more complex than a purely biological understanding.”

Liberal bishops around the world continue promoting heterodox views on homosexuality, female priests, divorce, contraception, and more — advancing anti-Catholic positions that jeopardize the salvation of souls.

Such bishops often sideline, ignore and even persecute traditional Catholics who simply ask that the Faith be preserved and passed on to their children.

But traditional Catholics cannot be silenced any longer, which is why we are uniting in this international boycott of modernist bishops and dioceses until the deposit of Faith is upheld by the hierarchy again. 

SIGN: We will not fund modernist bishops or priests who undermine the Catholic Faith, but rather direct our contributions towards faithful clergy and orders that work for the salvation of souls.

There are countless examples of bishops working against Christ's Church in calling for divine law to be ignored in favor of sexual, doctrinal and liturgical deviancy, even trying to clamp down on Catholics who practise the Faith. 

Just last year, Cardinal Cupich banned traditional prayers after Mass, and more recently has curtailed the Traditional Latin Mass in his diocese. 

The attack on the Faith is out in the open, with modernist bishops causing scandal in countless ways:

We have seen enough. Now is the time to show true Catholic unity against those who undermine the Faith - do not be bullied into submission by these men who would disfigure Christ's Church.

JOIN THE BOYCOTT & SHARE! Tell everyone you know to STOP giving money to bishops who attack the Catholic Faith.

"We therefore commit to a financial boycott of modernist bishops until the hierarchy resolves to uphold the entire deposit of Faith."

If the bishops refuse to uphold and protect the teaching of Christ's Bride, the Catholic Church, then we must refuse to support them until they repent. 

Thank you 

P.S. — Demanding that liberal bishops be held to account through financial boycott will help save the Church from doctrinal and pastoral ruin. This is the first step in restoring the Faith for future generations. Our time is now, so please join us by signing today!

In objecting to Church teaching on homosexuality, Frings himself said: 

It is often heard that the church should enable “safe spaces,” where queerness can be lived, free from discrimination and the pressure to justify itself. From my point of view, such safe spaces can be only an intermediate step. The church as a whole must be a safe space in order to meet people with different sexual identities. LGBTQ people are— like all Christians—a blessing for the community. 

Modernists tend to use ambiguous language to somewhat conceal their heterodoxy. But many modernist German Church leaders, laity and bishops alike, have moved on from that stage. They are now openly promoting heresy and disobedience. 

But if you publicly oppose almost every teaching of the Church, you cannot call yourself Catholic anymore. This is not a matter of being in error on a certain issue while otherwise trying to live a life faithful to Christ. This is apostasy.

The writings of the Central Committee of German Catholics reek of the modern zeitgeist and reveal a complete misunderstanding of the teaching of Christ’s Church. They display an attitude connected to dull slogans like “Just be nice to each other” and “Love is love.” They falsely believe that God’s universal love for every person means that our Lord does not care when you commit sins. 

They are taking a few verses from scripture that sound nice to them while disregarding all the ones that sound too “rigid” or “judgmental.” Like St. Augustine, the great Doctor of the Church, said: “If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.” These German “Catholics” mainly believe in themselves and their modern ideas. 

I do not mean to be too harsh, but I must tell the truth, for Christ said only the truth will set us free (cf. John 8:32). In order to love these fallen-away Catholics in Germany, we must tell them the truth and pray unceasingly for their conversion.
