So the usual suspect is saying that Catholic monarchy is the ideal form of government…is this a common belief among traditional Catholics? I think I remember John Zmirak once alluding to it. Let’s talk about just within the geographical territory of the United States. Is this a common hope for Traditionalists, the establishment of a Catholic Monarchical state? I didn’t originally see this as a common aspiration.
Agitating for such a thing in our own lifetimes is so…cart before the horse? Sure, our own founding fathers said that our Constitution is only suited for ruling a moral people (and as a whole, we aren’t). Sure, our failure to condemn slavery from the start doomed us to fail to live up to that, etc.
But Catholic monarchy? I’ve heard that the two largest religious groups in the U.S. are Catholics and former Catholics, but that’s a plurality, not a majority! And we all know that even just baptised Catholics have major issues as a whole. Many would say that most Catholics…aren’t Catholic.
So on what planet is this Catholic monarchy supposed to be founded? Because faithful Catholics, accounting for less than 1% of the US population, are not going to push this through, even if we all decided we liked the idea!
