[providing a service to my readers: avoid all these like the plague]
See my definition explained, and my explanation for coining the term; also, here is my web page on reactionaries, where you can also find my two books on the topic (one / two).
The Remnant (Michael J. Matt and Chris Ferrara)
One Peter Five (Steve Skojec)
Catholic Family News
aka Catholic (Louie Verrecchio)
Church Militant (Michael Voris)
Toronto Catholic Witness
Vox Cantoris (David Anthony Domet)
Henry Sire (Dictator Pope)
Taylor Marshall (Infiltration)
Asserting this is not the same as saying:
1) That they are totally evil people.
2) That they are insincere.
3) That therefore, not a single good thing ever appears on their sites.
4) That they are not Catholics.
5) That they are not orthodox Catholics in ways other than the hallmarks of this belief-system.
6) That no conceivable criticism of Pope Francis or any pope can ever be made (I have made a few myself).
7) That no one else has any opinions similar or identical to theirs.
But it’s saying that they are radical Catholic reactionaries. I myself coined this term in August 2013, in order to distinguish this more radical mindset over against legitimate traditionalists: to whom I am very close in belief and spirit in many ways, and over against the more radical irregular groups (SSPX and sedevacantists and suchlike).
Unfortunately, Money Trees Do Not Exist:
If you have been aided in any way by my work, or think it is valuable and worthwhile, please strongly consider financially supporting it (even $10 / month — a mere 33 cents a day — would be very helpful). I have been a full-time Catholic apologist since Dec. 2001, and have been writing Christian apologetics since 1981 (see my Resume
). My work has been proven (by God’s grace alone) to be fruitful, in terms of changing lives (see the tangible evidences from unsolicited “testimonies”
). I have to pay my bills like all of you: and have a (homeschooling) wife and three children still at home to provide for, and a mortgage to pay.
My book royalties from three bestsellers in the field
(published in 2003-2007) have been decreasing, as has my overall income, making it increasingly difficult to make ends meet. I provide over 2600 free articles here, for the purpose of your edification and education, and have written 50 books
. It’ll literally be a struggle to survive financially until Dec. 2020, when both my wife and I will be receiving Social Security. If you cannot contribute, I ask for your prayers (and “likes” and links and shares). Thanks!
See my information on how to donate
(including 100% tax-deductible donations). It’s very simple to contribute to my apostolate via PayPal, if a tax deduction is not needed (my “business name” there is called “Catholic Used Book Service,” from my old bookselling days 17 or so years ago, but send to my email: firstname.lastname@example.org). Another easy way to send and receive money (with a bank account or a mobile phone) is through Zelle
. Again, just send to my e-mail address. May God abundantly bless you.
