    Progressives, collectivists, and socialists within the Church are being revealed. It is time we realize that Marxism is aiming to destroy the Church and nuclear family and they have made significant strides in doing so in our country and our universal Catholic Church. It is time the Church stop depending on government money and depend on Jesus to give us the resources we need to spread the Gospel and reintroduce the countercultural salvation of our souls and those of our enemies as a priority.

    Criticism from Cupich is, de facto, praise for the Truth !!!
