Apocalypse! Steve Skojec’s Pontifications vs. Vatican II

Apocalypse! Steve Skojec’s Pontifications vs. Vatican II April 22, 2020

For those who think that radical Catholic reactionaries are simply traditionalists with a bit of an “edge”; think again. I’ve already documented how Steve Skojec of One Peter Five infamy, virtually believes that the Catholic Church can defect from the faith and that the Ordinary Form / New Mass is atrocious and abominable. Now we’ll take a survey (solely from his Twitter page: his words in blue) of his “prophetic” denunciations against the latest ecumenical council: the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). For those who appear unaware of it, Catholics are bound to accept its sublime magisterial authority. See:

Our man Skojec (the Man of the Hour and Oracle for Our Age) thinks that the Church after Vatican II is “a manifestly different thing” (11-5-19, 12:08 PM), an “almost totally different religion” (11-5-19, 12:09 PM), and a complete “rupture” (7-23-18, 2:53 PM). Catholicism was in essence “the same” throughout her entire history until Vatican II (7-23-18, 3:12 PM): which was a “revolution” and “rebellion against orthodoxy” (7-23-18, 3:13 PM); a “mistake” and “lethal” (10-18-18, 12:41 AM), and in fact represented a “new” Catholicism that couldn’t “mix” with the “old” (7-23-18, 3:15 PM). It’s no longer “truth” but rather, a “lie” (7-23-18, 3:16 PM). It “hijacked, usurped, & replaced” the previous “authentic Catholicism” (10-18-18, 12:43 AM). Even a “pious” man like Cardinal Sarah doesn’t understand genuine Catholic tradition because (horror of horrors!) he “defends Vatican II” (10-18-18, 12:48 AM).

All of these goofy notions, of course, constitute the supposed triumph in the Church of the heretical notion of “evolution of dogma” (roundly condemned by Pope St. Pius X) rather than the perfectly orthodox and legitimate development of doctrine. Alas, we poor Catholics must live with it as “a bizarre self-contradiction” (11-5-19, 12:09 PM). O woe is us! Who will deliver us from such a hideous fate?! Vatican II is “a mess” (2-5-18, 3:46 PM); not just the “interpretation” mind you: but the council itself. What would we have done with Steve to save us?!

Steve has somehow — inextricably — convinced himself that Vatican II is “non-binding” (9-25-29, 3:55 PM). He favorably links (10-9-18, 2:55 PM) to fellow extremist reactionary Peter Kwasniewski’s article, “RIP, Vatican II Catholicism (1962-2018)” [10-9-18]: published, of course, at One Vader Five.: complete with the picture of a ghastly casket. No subtleties here, folks . . . . He also favorably links (2-5-18, 12:46 PM) ) to the similar article, “Time to Let Go of Vatican II” by Brian Williams (2-2-18). Can you imagine some fool writing an article, “Time to Let Go of Vatican I” in the year 1925, or “Time to Let Go of Trent” in the year 1618?

Vatican II was filled with deliberate “exploitable timebombs” (2-5-18, 3:45 PM). The council was subject to “hijacking” and was “not benign” (2-5-18, 3:51 PM). The Church of Vatican II isn’t “worth living — or dying” for (1-18-18, 12:35 AM). But the Church prior to that “was” worth devoting one’s life to because (you see) it didn’t “suck” (1-18-18, 12:39 AM). The “legacy” of Pope St. Paul VI was the “decimation” he brought upon the Church (7-26-18, 1:54 PM). Tradition and received Catholic theology after Vatican II “meant jack squat” and was “sidelined” (7-26-19, 1:55 PM). There was no “continuity” with what came before (7-23-18, 6:48 PM).
