UPDATE: EWTN’s new film, “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing II – The Gender Agenda,” examines the origins and depravity of the so-called Sexual Revolution, with its current emphasis on gender dysphoria and homosexuality, and explains how the battle over marriage and family will be won.
The film airs Saturday, Oct. 17. The Oct. 17 airing will be preceded at 8:30 p.m. ET by the original “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” documentary, which explores the rise of Marxism in the U.S.
The following was written in reference to the first "A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing." --
The EWTN Catholic cable channel, which reaches tens of millions of people in the U.S., has been running a blockbuster film, “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing,” examining how Marxists have subverted the church from within by recruiting clergy into revolutionary socialist activities that divide people and cause conflict. The film is described as “a lens into America’s cultural Marxism euphemistically called ‘progressivism.’”
While the film is spiritual and moral in its basic orientation, filmmakers Richard and Stephen Payne discussed with EWTN host Father Mitch Pacwa, a former community organizer featured in the film, how this insidious form of community organizing, led by Saul Alinsky, was embraced not only by Barack Obama but also Hillary Clinton. Like Obama, Mrs. Clinton was a disciple of Alinsky. She wrote a thesis at Wellesley College on his revolutionary strategies.
As many Catholics get educated—perhaps for the first time—about the subversion in the church and its link to liberal politicians, the Donald J. Trump campaign has announced the creation of a new group to provide advisory support to the candidate on issues and policies important to Catholics. Interestingly, one of the members of this new group is Lisa Bourne, a journalist with LifeSiteNews.
Bourne has written such articles as “How billionaire George Soros is trying to hijack the Catholic Church for his progressive agenda,” and “Is the $91 million Obama refugee grant to the USCCB [United States Conference of Catholic Bishops] tied to bishops’ silence on Hillary?” The latter article questions whether or not the millions of federal dollars going to the Catholic bureaucracy is a reason for the bishops’ virtual silence on Hillary Clinton’s “atrocious record on life and family.”
With the release of the new film “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing,” the tide may be turning in favor of the conservative Catholics angry about the internal takeover of their church. The film is the work of a Roman Catholic production company, Arcadia Films, and is getting national attention from local Catholic groups such as Voice of Catholics Advocating Life. The film can be downloaded and watched on a personal computer or such platforms as Apple TV, Roku and Chromecast.
But what will the Catholic hierarchy do?
This is a money changers moment for the Catholic Church. Will they remain true to the teachings of their church and chase the bureaucrats, progressives, and hedge fund operators from the church? Or will they stay silent and continue counting the money from the progressive state and its financial sponsors?
