Why do you allow the state to bully the Church?

"COVID-19 was sprung on us by these very socialists to place society and Church on lockdown, so your duty as bishop is to ignore tyrannical state rulings and to remember your fidelity to God who commands that you listen to Him and not to corrupt state officials that have exaggerated the COVID-19 figures for their own political gains."

Your Excellency:

With all due respect for your attempts to stop the spread of COVID-19, the faithful of the Los Angeles Archdiocese feel betrayed that you allowed state officials to step in and impose a political lockdown of the Church. And while the reopening of the Church is finally in motion, it is loaded with regulation and restrictions that are coming from the state, not from Almighty God. You seem to have forgotten that the Church is not bound to the state, and this would especially apply when the state officials are accomplices to the crime.

Certainly, you must know that Governor Newsom and Mayor Garcetti were calling for a disbanding of the police for the purpose of encouraging race riots. Newsom told Black protesters last week, "I want you to know that you matter. To those who want to express themselves [riotously]... keep doing it. Your rage is real." 

According to Newsom, criminals "matter" but the innocent owners of looted shops don't matter. That a state official should act as a political arsonist to ignite the fire of civil violence testifies to the diabolical depths to which some of our leaders have descended. Are these the people you consult in directing Christ's Church?

COVID-19 was sprung on us by these very socialists to place society and Church on lockdown, so your duty as bishop is to ignore tyrannical state rulings and to remember your fidelity to God who commands that you listen to Him and not to corrupt state officials that have exaggerated the COVID-19 figures for their own political gains.

The numbers are way over the top. Doctors have testified to how the government has pressured them into lying about COVID-19 death figures. It's all politically motivated. They deliberately up the number of COVID-19 deaths to justify the continuation of their socialist lockdown, which is all the more reason for the Church to ignore these state rulings and recommendations.

Even if the state was justified in its recommendations--which it is not--the final decision is with the Church, not the state since the state cannot impose itself on the Church. The Church is autonomous and is even protected by the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment (Separation of Church and State) that says the state cannot interfere with the Church. Why do you allow the state to bully the Church?

We often praise the martyrs who accepted persecution and death at the hands of pagan leaders because they stood up against these tyrants, but when it's our turn we suddenly shrink and make excuses for fleeing the cross. You wrote a book about "Men of Brave Heart," yet you don't live by it. Stand up against these political wolves and don't allow them to boss the Church.

And please do not allow Cardinal Mahony to exert any influence in the Church. The consensus among many clerics is that Mahony is running the Archdiocese through you and is acting as an agent of the deep-state to impose these COVID-19 restrictions--something they plan to continue into the future. Certainly, you must know that Mahony has a history of abuse, not to mention that he is a gay-rights advocate. Many allege that he is a Freemason. How is it that Mahony is allowed to write, speak, and to function in your Archdiocese?

UNFORTUNATELY, he and his deep-state cronies are also using COVID-19 as a tool to impose Communion in the hand since they know it profanes the Church and weakens the Church's strength against them. Several churches in the Archdiocese are imposing this practice in accord with your directives for the reopening of the Church.

What is absurd is that receiving in the hand is far more influential in spreading coronavirus than receiving on the tongue, proving all the more that these imposed restrictions have little to do with COVID-19. We've become like the hypocrites in Christ's time, touting our hand-washing and "sanitary" procedures and adopting ridiculous "traditions of men" while the work of God is ignored!

The bottom line is that Communion in the hand is sacrilegious and may never be imposed on the faithful under any circumstances. Canon law forbids that any cleric should deny the faithful their God-given right to receive Communion on the tongue. The enemies of the Church were hoping to use COVID-19 to get Communion in the hand mandated on a permanent basis, so we ask that you stand against this ungodly plan to profane the Eucharist under the guise of "public health and safety."

Remember, these liberal bureaucrats can only execute their plans through you, so please stand up like a man and lock the state out of the Church. All the fuss about face-masks, social distancing, limited attendance, and receiving in the hand has accomplished nothing more than to turn the Church into something of a police-state. Let's drop the protocol and open the churches without reserve that the people might be on their knees in reparation for the many sins in the Church that brought this chastisement upon us to begin with.

For COVID-19 has truly been a chastisement for our profanation of the Church through modern practice, especially the practice of receiving Communion in the hand. When chastisements are given by God, we're supposed to learn by them. Have we learned our lesson or are we continuing like Pharisees to impose sin upon the faithful?

Sincerely in Christ and His Holy Mother,

David Martin


First Comment from JG

Excellent post by Mr. Martin and I couldn't agree much more with this letter of request. It took me a while to accept the fact that a lot of today's Church leaders are not the leaders of old renown. Worldliness has crept into the Church as prophesized. They have traded the Word in exchange for the peace and prosperity of this world. 

Ashamedly they use the Word as a vehicle for obtaining their own personal wealth and comfort zone and bow to the political correctness religion of the state in order to keep their worldly lot.

 Jesus Christ has been put out of his own Church today by leaders like this. America has slowly turned into a Modern Sodom and Gomorrah by tolerating almost every doctrine of hell that the ungodly US Supreme Court over the last 50 years has imposed on its citizens. As the persecution of the Christian Doctrine intensifies you will find out who your true leaders of the Church Age and who they are not.

Scruples - the game of moral dillemas

Relax Mr. Martin you are completely clueless regarding the end of days and the True Church i.e. The One Holy and Apostolic Universal Church built upon St. Peter; which is Lord God’s Church; currently in eclipse by the black deep state church; which is Satan’s church aka Vatican II. If Jesus were here incarnate He’d tell this directly into your face “ Get thee behind me Satan!”

JB said (June 18, 2020):

The fake church in the Vatican is not the Holy Roman Catholic Church of History. We are being conned just as we are entering the last days and the signs are there for those who have "goodwill". God allows those who have this goodwill to love and see the "Truth of Christ original message embodied in his True Church, and His statement about the few that are saved ie go "home" to Him are all through the dogma and writings of the Church before the buildings were hijacked by the conspirators in the early 60s took control. Those who cling to their sins and want the "good" life are comparable to Sara at Sodom and will meet the same fate. In the end, the remnant, what is called the "elect" will be saved after the Satanists are finished with us. My advice: pray to see the truth about what I say and become one of the last of true Catholics before it's too late. Remember, the "kingdom" i.e. the Church is within people who hold the true faith and that is where you still find us. I suggest you begin with God will lead you from there.

The Novus Ordo (Mass in English) crowd are PO’d at the bishops as well. Despite what they’d have you believe, the Latin Mass crowd doesn’t have a corner on holiness! The level of blasphemy in the liberal church is paralleled only by the pomposity of the conservative church.

Look at it this way. If the average bishop would cover up sex crimes, dine and drink with politicians, go militant about open borders, but silent on abortion, why would you expect him to suddenly stand up to the state? It is moot in my area, because here the bishops closed their sanctuaries the weekend before the general lockdown! This means they labeled themselves among the nonessential, so it’s worse, Mr. Martin, than you think! And now, having set a precedent by giving up the autonomy of the Church, don’t think for a moment we will ever go back to normal in our lifetimes. The damage is done!

Read your Bible. It is the end of the age. As God could no longer stomach the garbage coming out of any of the churches, he allowed them to shut down. Very soon you will have to meet secretly in remote places.

TB said (June 18, 2020):

In regards to your most recent post regarding the Church and David's open letter. I find it interesting that alternative media isn't discussing the fact that supposedly thousands of church leaders we're indoctrinated by FEMA a few years back. I remember hearing about it from multiple alternative media sources at the time. But since we're in this phase of the nwo takeover you don't hear anything about it. I find it's interesting how history gets revised so rapidly and forgotten.

Essel said (June 17, 2020):

That's good for a start, but Mr. Martin shouldn't stop there. He has to pull the wire he grabbed all the way to the end. He must study subversion in the Church in depth and consider the contradictions between the documents of Vatican II and the immutable teaching of the Church. Then draw conclusions. For example, how and why the rituals for the ordination of priests and the consecration of bishops were changed in 1969 to make them invalid. No, Mr. Martin, you are not dealing with a successor of the Apostles! Mr. Martin, do you know that the purple colour of cardinals' cassocks is meant to remind them that they must go to martyrdom if necessary. But your cardinal is an operetta cardinal. The same applies to the Mass, which was overturned (typical Masonic signature) also in 1969: instead of turning to Jerusalem (symbolizing God) to perform the Christian sacrifice (actualization of that of Jesus on the Cross), a false priest in civilian clothes prostrates himself before the people and shows his behind to God for "a meal" (dixit Montini alias "Paul VI"). And you believe your host has been consecrated? You can touch it without fear, it's bread.
