Conversion in Reverse: How the Ethos of Americanism Converted Catholics

Authored by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey

Conversion in Reverse: How the Ethos of of Americanism Converted Catholics explains how the uncritical acceptance by Catholics of the principles of the American founding as completely compatible with the teaching of the Catholic Faith led them over the course of time into the trap of viewing Holy Mother Church through eyes of the world (democracy, pluralism, relativism, materialism, majoritarianism, egalitarianism, feminism) rather than viewing the world through the eyes of the Holy Faith.

This is the first volume of a three volume series. The first volume provides a summary of Catholic social teaching concerning the civil state and a thumbnail history of Christendom prior to the rise of the Protestant Revolution and inevitable triumph of the naturalism (reducing all of human activity to the merely natural, material level without any regard for the supernatural) up to the time of the American founding. Volume Two will study the conversion of Catholics to the iron dictates of pluralism and religious indifferentism (one religion is as good as another) in the Nineteenth and early-Twentieth Centuries, discussing how many, although not all, American bishops, served as lackeys and apologists for career politicians. The third volume will concentrate on the triumph of the Americanist spirit at the "Second" Vatican Council and how this triumph has enabled Catholics and non-Catholics in public life who support one abject evil after another.

The formatting by Create Space changed the pagination of a few of the chapters. Other than that, however, the text is clean and without problems.
