Evil Editor of La Civiltà Cattolica Attacks Church Militant

Edit: The fact that Spadaro, a man of very dubious orthodoxy but great power in the Church, is angry with Church Militant, is a positive indicator that they are doing the right stuff.  It's a sign of sanctity, even, isn't it?
VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - An influential Vatican advisor is slamming Church Militant as belligerent, an apostolate that employs "shocking rhetoric" to allegedly impose a "ultraconservative" political agenda in Catholic dress.
Father Antonio Spadaro, S.J. is Editor-in-Chief of La Civiltà Cattolica, considered the official voice of the Vatican and whose contents are reviewed and approved by the Vatican Secretary of State before publication. Spadaro is also one of Pope Francis' closest associates and an influential advisor. In an article titled "Evangelical Fundamentalism and Catholic Integralism in the USA: A surprising ecumenism," published in the current issue of the journal, Spadaro goes on the attack against American conservatives, Evangelicals and President Trump, and laments "Catholic integralists" who allegedly insert politics into their work of saving souls.
"There is a shocking rhetoric used, for example, by the writers of Church Militant," Spadaro writes, "a successful US-based digital platform that is openly in favor of a political ultraconservatism and uses Christian symbols to impose itself. This abuse is called 'authentic Christianity.'"

New York Times Horrified That Steve Bannon is a Militant Catholic

“Catholicism is necessarily an adversary faith and culture in an America where a triumphant secularism has captured the heights, from Hollywood to the media, the arts and the academy, and relishes nothing more than insults to and blasphemous mockery of the Church of Rome.” ~Pat Buchanan

 Edit: the fake news site New York Times looks in horror at what it's weasels have uncovered. This, and they rush to cite talking heads in fake Catholic institutions to give what they insist is a more accurate view of what the Catholic Church teaches. They use Michael Voris and his Church Militant as a negative example. There is nothing particularly controversial about what Church Militant or Steve Bannon are proposing according to the Times, but one could see that it might spell an end to the oppressive regime of secularism and deviance if allowed to take shape and come to fruition in the renewal of the Social Reign of Christ the King.

[New York Times] A week after Stephen K. Bannon helped engineer the populist revolt that led to Donald J. Trump’s election, Buzzfeed unearthed a recording of him speaking to a Vatican conference of conservative Catholics in 2014.

 In his presentation, Mr. Bannon, then the head of the hard-right website Breitbart News and now Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, called on the “church militant” to fight a global war against a “new barbarity” of “Islamic fascism” and international financial elites, with 2,500 years of Western civilization at risk.

 While most listeners probably overlooked the term “church militant,” knowledgeable Catholics would have recognized it as a concept deeply embedded in the church’s teaching. Moreover, they would have noticed that Mr. Bannon had taken the term out of context, invoking it in a call for cultural and military conflict rather than for spiritual warfare, particularly within one’s soul, its longstanding connotation.
