What is the Social Reign of Christ the King? I’ve heard this concept being used before, particularly among traditionalists, but I don’t know what it means.

Whenever I see it used, it means that we are allowed to push our religious morals on others (without having to justify them in debate - I don’t have to be religious to know abortion is wrong) because its the merciful thing to do, as all will be judged by Catholic standards at judgement. Sounds like a shot right through the separation of church and state.
