Antipope John Paul II, Address to Jacques Chirac, August 14, 2004: “With respect for the responsibilities and competences of all, the Catholic Church desires to offer society a specific contribution towards the building of a world in which the great ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity can form the basis of social life, in the tireless pursuit and promotion of the common good.” (L’Osservatore Romano, Aug. 25, 2004, p. 5.)Comment: The slogan “liberty, equality and fraternity” was the motto of the French Revolution when it overthrew the Catholic/Christian order in France in 1789. In fact, if you do a websearch for “French Revolution” the slogan “liberty, equality and fraternity” naturally comes up immediately. It represents the rejection of God and the Catholic Faith and the elevation of man against God. By Antipope John Paul II’s speech, he is clearly telling us that the torch of the revolution against the Catholic Church is something that he champions, and that the continuance of this revolution against God and Catholicism has now passed to “the Church.” By this statement, Antipope John Paul II is telling those who have “ears to hear” (and those who understand the evil significance of the French Revolution) that he is on the side of the revolutionaries against the Catholic Church. He is telling us that he wants to use his counterfeit sect to make these Antichrist and revolutionary ideals the very “basis of social life”! This statement is so bad that, upon seeing it, even one false traditionalist commentator remarked that it may mark that the reign of Antichrist is upon us or very close, since by it Antipope John Paul II is enshrining the principles of Antichrist and Anti-Catholicism as the mission of the Church and what must constitute the very basis of social life! Many Popes have condemned the French Revolution’s slogan “liberty, equality and fraternity,” but I will just quote Pius X.
Pope St. Pius X, Vehementer Nos (# 8), Feb. 11, 1906: “If follows that the Church is essentially an unequal society, that is, a society comprising two categories of persons, the Pastors and the flock, those who occupy a rank in the different degrees of the hierarchy and the multitude of the faithful.” Pope St. Pius X, Apostolic Letter on “the Sillon,” Aug. 15, 1910: “…the reign of Justice, Liberty, Equality and Fraternity … A Doctrine Contrary to Catholic Truth… they fear not to draw between the Gospel and the revolution blasphemous comparisons…”The entire Apostolic Letter of Pius X on “the Sillon” deals with why this slogan is opposed to Catholic teaching.
