On Christian Identity & Roman Catholicism

By  | 

EDITOR’S NOTE: Our Sam submitted this piece to get you thinking about how the racial tenets of Christian Identity dovetail with the holy writings of Catholicism – and as they used to be widely understood by all of us.

I write to address the topic of the modern movement called Christian Identity and its relationship to Roman Catholicism, from the perspective of a Catholic. If a Catholic were to consider Christian Identity for the first time today, he might find it to be an entirely Protestant movement. But we would do well to consider that the Traditional Catholicism of the 21st century is mostly (in my experience) a nostalgic movement to recapture the spirit of 1950s American Catholicism before the “Civil Rights” era. That does not mean I am throwing “Trad Cath” out. I only ask for consideration of my perspective.

Our ancestors understood the Curse of Cain before the 1950s, and it was casually and ubiquitously referred to everywhere. The Church did not build any doctrine into its dogmas of the Catechism that specifically addressed race. I think this is because race was so widely and thoroughly understood. It must have seemed obvious to them – and should be more than obvious to us by now – that these other races largely lack the capacity to care about, understand, or feel for our religion the way we do. Non-Whites were not considered remotely the same as us until after World War 2. A recent “celebration” of the overturning of a law in New Zealand which recognized aboriginal persons as part of the flora and fauna of the land comes to mind. In the United States, blacks were famously enshrined as 3/5ths of a person in our Constitution. Interracial marriage was illegal in most U.S. states until the Supreme Court’s Loving v. Virginia decision in 1967. I would argue that missionaries never tried to convert non-Whites until after the Reformation and the opening of the New World. Some will balk at that contention, but I have good reason to believe it.

Regardless, please consult your copy of Mein Kampf. If you have not read this book in its entirety at least once, then you should do this first. Consider these references to the Original Sin:

Volume 1, Chapter 11
Aryan tribes, often almost ridiculously small in number, subjugated foreign peoples and, stimulated by the conditions of life which their new country offered them (fertility, the nature of the climate, etc.), and profiting also by the abundance of manual labor furnished them by the inferior race, they developed intellectual and organizing faculties which had hitherto been dormant in these conquering tribes. Within the course of a few thousand years, or even centuries, they gave life to cultures whose primitive traits completely corresponded to the character of the founders, though modified by adaptation to the peculiarities of the soil and the characteristics of the subjugated people. But finally the conquering race offended against the principles which they first had observed, namely, the maintenance of their racial stock unmixed, and they began to intermingle with the subjugated people. Thus they put an end to their own separate existence; for the original sin committed in Paradise has always been followed by the expulsion of the guilty parties.

Volume 2, Chapter 2
That such a mentality may be possible cannot be denied in a world where hundreds and thousands accept the principle of celibacy from their own choice, without being obliged or pledged to do so by anything except an ecclesiastical precept. Why should it not be possible to induce people to make this sacrifice if, instead of such a precept, they were simply told that they ought to put an end to this truly original sin of racial corruption which is steadily being passed on from one generation to another. And, further, they ought to be brought to realize that it is their bounden duty to give to the Almighty Creator beings such as He himself made to His own image.

Volume 2, Chapter 13
France’s activities in Europe today, spurred on by the French lust for vengeance and systematically directed by the Jew, are a criminal attack against the life of the white race and will one day arouse against the French people a spirit of vengeance among a generation which will have recognized the original sin of mankind in this racial pollution.

Now, let us look to a few Scriptures to understand the context in which their authors were writing. All Scripture is taken from the Douay-Rheims translation of the Vulgate, which I highly recommend.

St. Matthew 13:34-40
34. All these things Jesus spoke in parables to the multitudes: and without parables he did not speak to them. 35. That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world. 36. Then having sent away the multitudes, he came into the house, and his disciples came to him, saying: Expound to us the parable of the cockle of the field.  37. Who made answer and said to them: He that soweth the good seed, is the Son of man.  38. And the field, is the world. And the good seed are the children of the kingdom. And the cockle, are the children of the wicked one.  39. And the enemy that sowed them, is the devil. But the harvest is the end of the world. And the reapers are the angels.  40. Even as cockle therefore is gathered up, and burnt with fire: so shall it be at the end of the world.

Christ uttered things hidden from the foundation of the world. The Old Testament cannot be understood except through the teachings of Christ. Read Christ first, then read the Old Testament. You should not read the Bible from the beginning. He explains the parable of the wheat and the cockle – not with another parable – but with the truth. A good seed is only going to become what it always would, and likewise the bad seed.

II Corinthians 11:1-3
Would to God you could bear with some little of my folly: but do bear with me.  2. For I am jealous of you with the jealousy of God. For I have espoused you to one husband that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.  3. But I fear lest, as the serpent seduced Eve by his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted, and fall from the simplicity that is in Christ.

You mean to tell me that the fall of Eve had something to do with losing her virginity to a serpent?! That is what an analogy is, likening a similar circumstance to an actual one.

Hebrews 12:16
Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau; who for one mess, sold his first birthright.  17. For know ye that afterwards, when he desired to inherit the benediction, he was rejected; for he found no place of repentance, although with tears he had sought it.

So, Esau was a “fornicator.” What did he do? He took wives of the Hittites, against his parents’ wishes. Hittites were intermarried with the Rephaim (fallen angels). Jacob did not “steal” the birthright. His mother put him up to it. He did not even want to do it. But he had to do it so this race-traitor, Esau, would not get Isaac’s blessing.

But what about specifically Catholic references to this type of understanding? I have endeavored to read works by Saints and other pious literature. I wanted to quote from one of the greatest Catholic books of all time, The Glories of Mary, by St. Alphonsus Liguori. I read it in its entirety about 25 years ago, and am working my way through it again in the last few years; I am about halfway through. It is a big book! I remembered a section where the author described Eve being seduced by the devil, and drawing a contrast with the Blessed Mother’s obedience. I started leafing through my book, trying to locate the quotation, but failed to do so on two occasions. Then, right before sleep, I thought to ask St. Anthony to help find the passage…and lo and behold, I found it in Part 1, Chapter 3, Section i:

In the book of Exodus we read that God commanded Moses to make a Mercy Seat of the purest gold, because it was thence that He would speak to him. “Thou shalt also make a propitiatory of the purest gold… Thence will I give orders, and will speak to thee.” St. Andrew of Crete says, that ‘the whole world embraces Mary as being this propitiatory.’ And commenting on his words, a pious author exclaims, ‘Thou, O Mary, art the propitiatory of the whole world. From thee does our most compassionate Lord speak to our hearts; from thee He speaks words of pardon and mercy; from thee He bestows His gifts; from thee all good flows to us.’ And therefore, before the Divine Word took flesh in the womb of Mary, He sent an archangel to ask her consent: because He willed that the world should receive the Incarnate Word through her, and that she should be the source of every good. Hence St. Irenaeus remarks, that as Eve was seduced by a fallen angel, to flee from God, so Mary was led to receive God into her womb, obeying a good angel; and thus, by her obedience, repaired Eve’s disobedience, and became her advocate, and that of the whole human race. ‘If Eve disobeyed God, yet Mary was persuaded to obey God, that the Virgin Mary might become the advocate of the virgin Eve. And as the human race was bound to death through a virgin, it is saved by a Virgin.’

B. Raymond Jordano also says that every good, every help, every grace that men have received and will receive from God until the end of time, came, and will come, to them by the intercession and through the hands of Mary.

I have a digital copy of The Glories of Mary at work, so, I thought I would copy-paste the section I wanted into this article. But when I located the passage in the pdf file, look at how they changed it in the following excerpt! Impossible, I thought. So I looked it up on a Catholic website where they have the book digitally, chapter by chapter, and they had the identical corruption. So, that preceding chapter I had to type out manually from the book.

God ordered Moses to make a propitiatory of the purest gold, telling him that from it he would speak to him: “Thou shalt make also a propitiatory of the purest gold. Thence will I give orders, and will speak to thee.” [236] A certain author explains this propitiatory to be Mary, through whom the Lord speaks to men, and dispenses to them pardon, graces, and favors. [237] And therefore St. Irenæus says that the divine Word, before incarnating himself in the womb of Mary, sent the archangel to obtain her consent, because he would have the world indebted to Mary for the mystery of the incarnation. [238] Also the Idiot remarks, that every blessing, every help, every grace that men have received or will receive from God, to the end of the world, has come to them, and will come to them, through the intercession and by means of Mary.[239]

They cut out the entire section about Eve being seduced by a fallen angel! And what is with the sentence beginning, “Also the Idiot remarks….”?! It is that way in the pdf book and the Catholic website!

Anyhow, confer with 1 John 3:11: For this is the declaration, which you have heard from the beginning, that you should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of the wicked one, and killed his brother. 

I know that for many, none of this will be good enough. I am only offering these as a few starting points. I recommend listening to podcasts from “On Genesis” series. Bill Finck’s research is impeccable, and I think he really is onto something there. Catholic history gives us a rich treasure of morals, application of Scripture, resolving of controversies, Sacraments, theology, and all the rest. How can man be so foolish to discard, out of hand, the thing that could give such joy and holiness and valuable knowledge to life?

It’s the times we live in, I suppose. Even though the truth is out there, you can’t do much about it even when you do know it. People who don’t know will just call you crazy. The people who do know some little piece of the truth will just tear each other to shreds over minor disagreements. An early clue for me about the racial truth of Christianity was the sacred art in Catholic churches. Everyone from Adam and Eve to the Patriarchs to Christ Himself to the Apostles and Saints is White. Was this racism on the part of our Christian forefathers? Why are all but the recently canonized saints White? Racism again? No, it’s the same reason that nearly all the useful science, medicine, literature, music, etc. comes from one race. These other races – with few exceptions – are nothing but tares. I will admit that our Catholic religion does ennoble them in a limited, near-term manner. But that does not mean we have to take care of them or tolerate them or allow lies to be told about race. In fact, sharing our religion with them puts our race at risk. Sometimes you cannot love two things at the same time.
