I'm sort of obsessed with this issue of dirty money and compromise right now.
A lot of people worry about Obama's health-care bill passing because tax dollars will go towards abortion. Well, continue with that logic. Do you ever buy food or necessary items at a store that sells condoms? Do you ever support gas stations where pornography is sold? Does your health-insurance fund abortions? Mine does, for mothers whose life is at risk ( which is still wrong ). If yours doesn't, it surely funds unnecessary vasectomies and things like that.
What about the Internet, by paying the cable company aren't we abetting porn? If you have a job where you're not allowed to wear any symbol of Christ and Mary are you denying God?
How much compromise is acceptable? Is any of this acceptable or is this the mark of the beast -- are we all doomed? Is this what Christ is saying when He says that unless those days will be shortened no flesh will be saved? All I know is we should do the best we can to avoid compromise, but I don't see any possible way to avoid all of it, even if we were homeless. Yes, believe it or not, I have considered rushing out into the street like a madman and living off handouts, perhaps preaching from atop a billboard or something like that. But even then, to buy soap somewhere with my pocket change, I'd still be supporting evil, because where do you buy soap that doesn't also sell porn, condoms, etc.? I am feeling incredibly trapped.
You have to be careful with this kind of thinking because it will drive you bonkers. It is worse for me because I am trying to get a job and I am trying to figure out where to work, with no resume, at age 33, where I won't have to work at Sunday and where they'll allow me to wear my Miraculous Medal. So for now I've decided to go to school, maybe online school to get a vet technician degree, since if I have to work on Sunday then it is an emergency ( pulling the sheep out of a ditch on Sunday ).
This is what rattles around in my head all the time. How to remain clean, how not to compromise in today's society. Oh, and on top of all that, right now I'm living off my mom's money and her job was one of the worst jobs possible from the Catholic perspective, teaching in the pagan school system, opening up a whole new can of worms. When you convert, are you supposed to just give up your immoral old job -- which she did, sort of, essentially getting depressed and having to leave -- or do you also have to give up all the money you made in that job as well?
In the face of all this, buying a CD from someone in the SSPX pales in comparison. But I actually have had the problem this guy has. Even to give charity to someone in the SSPX essentially helps the SSPX. Yes, some of them are Catholics, but they are Catholics supporting anti-Christs. They also vociferously defend this support of anti-Christs.
There is a good solution -- everyone should be sedevacantist. Then we could all pool together and maybe have one of those local economies going, live like the Amish.
