In the midst of the world's second insane plunge into an armed conflagration of the 20th century, Fr. Fahey produced The Kingship of Christ and Organized Naturalism (KCON). While the priest did not directly address the horrific conflict that was raging all about, the book's contents explain why the mass slaughter and unprecedented destruction was taking place.

Since its appearance eighty years ago, not only has mankind abandoned what was left of Christianity, but it has steadily gone against the natural law, with the most striking examples in this era being the legalization of abortion and now sodomy. It is unlikely that these two abominations would have ever been possible had not the Catholic Church apotheosized from the Faith of its Founder and is now actively promoting homosexuality and has softened its stance on abortion.

This is because the institution which Christ established for the salvation of souls two millennia ago has been usurped by a "Counter Church" run by a gang of Modernists, pedophiles, and embezzlers who make the "bad popes" of the past, look like the greatest of saints. Beginning in earnest at the Second Vatican Anti-Council (1962-65), and in the alteration of the traditional Sacraments in the Council's aftermath, the Church has been fundamentally changed and is no longer One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic, but a perverted, grotesque monstrosity that no right-thinking person would have anything to do with.

While Fr. Fahey's words were applicable at the time of World War II and if heeded would have prevented that catastrophe from continuing to its grizzly conclusion, an ending from which the human race has still not recovered, (KCON) is just as profound and important for contemporary times. The forces which brought about the madness of the Second World War, the wars that followed, and the further de-Christianization of Western society are still at work seeking to bring about a One-World State where mankind will be reduced to the most primitive conditions, left without personal freedom, and where religion will not only be completely pushed out of the public arena, but its followers will be ruthlessly persecuted.

Naturalism and Supernaturalism Defined

"Naturalism," Fr. Fahey describes, "consists in the negation of the possibility of the elevation of our nature to the supernatural life and order, or more radically still, in the negation of the very existence of that life and order." (33) The priest continues:

Naturalism may be defined, therefore, as the attitude of mind which denies the reality of the divine life of grace and our Fall therefrom by Original Sin. (Ibid)

Naturalism "affirms that our highest life is the life of reason, and consequently, denies that there has been any such thing as a fall from, or the loss of supernatural life." From this, naturalism asserts "that it is a matter of indifference whether one invokes Our Lord Jesus Christ, or Mahomet or Buddha, or nobody at all." (54)

In contrast, Supernaturalism "affirms that the life of grace, participation in the life of the Blessed Trinity, is infinitely higher than the natural life of human reason and that the unique source of that life is the existing order, is Our Lord Jesus Christ." The effects of Original Sin and, in the course of life, actual sin can be atoned for by participation in the supernatural life through the Sacraments on earth: "The loss of supernatural life through the fall of the first Adam has been repaired through membership of the Mystical Body of the second Adam." (53)

The Triune God in naturalism is substituted for the God of Reason, the ". . . highest life is the life of reason, and, consequently, denies that there has been any such thing as a fall from, or a loss of, supernatural life." (Ibid) The Enlightenment taught that man's ability to use his intellect to think rationally (without the assistance of Almighty God or His Church) would be the great bulwark against tyranny, the passage of unjust laws and/or policies. The use of logic would expose the harmful effects of bad legislation and even prevent the rise of tyranny.

A look at the past several hundred years; however, have proven how wrong the thinkers of the Age of Reason turned out to be. Without the assistance and inspiration of the supernatural, mankind will sink to the lowest of lows in all endeavors with the most unimaginable evils tolerated and even promoted. Illusions and hoaxes will be perpetrated upon a defenseless people without the protection of the Church. The most obvious fraud of the current generation has been that of "global warming" and "climate change." If the initiatives behind these scams are taken to their logical conclusions, mankind will be reduced to the most primitive conditions.

With the Blessed Trinity and the Church shunted aside, the state will be looked at to fill the void. "The naturalistic mentality," Fr. Fahey sees, ". . . insists that the highest social organization is the individual state, or the whole group of states, tending to coalesce into a World State." And, it will be of tantamount importance to the state for its survival and legitimacy to eliminate "every vestige of supernatural life from social organization." (54)

Organized Naturalism

To bring about a social order bereft of the supernatural, there have been organized forces, institutions, associations, and groups both secret and open who have pushed naturalism. At first, it was secret societies - Masons, Illuminati, etc. - which infiltrated the centers of power in Europe, including the Church, to change policies, laws, and eventually the culture by attacking, belittling and discrediting the idea that the supernatural should have any part in the governance or working of society.

Organized naturalism's influence came to full fruition during the so-called Enlightenment which led directly to the American and French Revolutions and the political upheavals of the 19th century. World War I was the watershed which ended the last vestiges of aristocratic and, at least, nominally Christian rule with the fall of the courts of Germany, Russia, and Austria. The aftermath of WWI ushered in the Democratic Age, a long-cherished goal of organized naturalism. The rise of social democracy deliberately coincided with the secularization of society as each succeeding decade would become more radical and anti-Christian.

One of the key planks of organized naturalism and one which permeates the modern mind is "religious indifferentism." All religions, according to this creed, are basically the same, there is none superior to another or has a "monopoly" on Divine Truth. The Conciliar Church since Vatican II has promoted this heretical notion and as more evidence has come to light, the seeds of this revolution were surreptitiously laid in the preceding decades. This heresy strikes at the very core of Catholicism, which undermines the Church's mission to evangelize and convert all peoples as Christ explicitly commanded at the end of St. Matthew's Gospel:

Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.

Under religious indifferentism, man can choose, or not to choose, the faith of his liking. It does not matter for salvation what religion is followed since each has some intrinsic merit. This, of course, goes contrary to the teaching of the Church that only those who are part of the Church (and, of course, in good standing) can obtain the beatific vision.

There are wider social repercussions to the idea of religious indifferentism, especially in regard to the State which has over time undermined Catholicism. Since no religion is superior to another or can claim that it is the true Church of Christ, no religion, and thus the principles which it is based upon, can have any influence on the state's policies and actions. Thus, false doctrines are allowed to flourish and blasphemies against the majesty of God are tolerated and sometimes encouraged.

The consequences of this concept has played itself out in the last two centuries and continues unabated today. Religious indifferentism opens the door to the expansion of state power and ultimately totalitarianism. With all religions of equal value, the state has become the ultimate authority and judge of the moral law and the meting out of justice. It is not bound by moral principles and has created its own "public law" and regulatory dictates.

If one thought that religious indifferentism had no consequences, Fr. Fahey quotes one prelate who sees that the mass murder and devastation of WWI was Divine retribution:

I do not hesitate to affirm that this indifference to religion, which puts on the same level the religion of divine origin and the religions invented by men, in order to include them in the same scepticism, is the blasphemy which, far more than the sins of individuals and families, calls down God's chastisements on society. (34)

The Mass Versus Organized Naturalism

Another example of (KCON) relevance today can be seen in light of Newpope Bergoglio's latest measure to suppress the "Latin Mass." It is clear, except to clueless Newchurch conservatives, that he and the previous Conciliar popes have been aligned with the enemies of the Mass both those of the natural and supernatural worlds. Of course, it must be remembered that Bergoglio's action is focused on the Mass of 1962 which was the stepping stone to Paul VI/Montini's Missale Romanum in 1969. It is instructive to note that nearly all of the Catholic neocons and semi-traditionalists never speak of this crucial difference in their supposed "resistance" to Bergoglio.

Since its inception, the archenemy of the Mass has been, as the Divine Savior described, the "Father of Lies" and a "Murderer." Fr Fahey asserts that "All the frightful energy . . . of Satan's hatred is specially directed against the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which is the renewal of the expression of submission of Calvary." (37) This has been the inspiration behind all the heresiarchs who have attacked the Mass and sought its destruction. And, ignorance of this fact "makes it hard for people who read only the newspapers and frequent the cinema, to understand . . . the hatred of the Mass and of the priesthood displayed by the Communist[s] and Mason[s]. . . ." (Ibid.)

Whether they are aware of it or not (which is no excuse) neoconservative and semi-traditional Catholics who accept the New Mass and remain in Newchurch are in league with Satan and his minions: "We must distinguish between the end Satan had in view in the Crucifixion of Our Lord and the purpose he now has in view in directing and provoking attacks on those who celebrate Mass and those who assist thereat." (37-38) Although he probably could not fathom that Christ's Church would be leading a campaign to do away with the Traditional Mass, Fr Fahey's words describe almost to a tee Bergoglio's latest actions:

But they [the devils] are quite well aware of the meaning of the Mass. All their efforts are directed towards preventing its celebration, by exterminating the priesthood, and towards thwarting its effects by limiting it to the role of a rite bereft of significance for men's social life. . . . (38)

The following could be directed at the earthly destroyers of the Mass:

If Satan cannot succeed in doing away with the one acceptable act of worship, he will try to restrict it to the minds and hearts of as few individuals as possible. One had only to look at the world to see how far he had succeeded since the French Revolution. (38-39)

Fr. Fahey's prediction on what would happen if the Holy Eucharist was profaned has also come to fruition. The sacrileges which have been committed against what is purported to be the Body and Blood of Christ in the New Mass are legendary in their degradation. The future secular world predicted by Fr. Fahey has become a reality and is, no doubt, the result of the sacrileges which have taken place:

Profanation of the Blessed Eucharist has, on many occasions at least, been part of the preparation of apostate Catholics to be fitting instruments of revolution or of anti-supernatural legislation. (39)

Over the past hundred years or so, however, the attacks on the Mass have come from inside the Church. Prior to Vatican II, those who sought to change the Mass were "dissent" clergymen. The assault on the Mass which led to Paul VI/Montini's New Mass in 1969 was the establishment under Pius XII of the Commission for Liturgical Reform in 1948. Incrementally, changes were instituted with one of the most significant that of Holy Week in 1955.

While Newchurch has sought to suppress and eventually do away with the "Old Mass," Fr. Fahey, to no one's surprise, held the traditional view that the Mass is central to the maintenance and well-being of society:

We have seen that social organization is meant to be permeated with the reality of the supernatural life of the Mystical Body of Christ, in view of aiding us to bring our daily life into harmony with out protestation of loyalty to the Blessed Trinity in Holy Mass, in union with Christ as Priest. . . . assistance at Mass, in union with Christ as Priest, urges us to strive to realize the Kingship of Our Lord in its integrity, in a Christian framework of society. (35)

History & KCON

The effects of the replacement of the Kingship of Christ throughout the Western world with naturalism would have devastating consequences. Not only would millions of souls be lost, but the societies upon which Christ once reigned have become corrupt, depraved and increasingly atheistic. All of this was predicted, of course, by Fr. Fahey and other like-minded thinkers.

As a good historian, Fr. Fahey shows that the breakdown of Christendom began before the Protestant revolt and later French Revolution and started, in part, with the law school of 11th century Bologna which propagated the "will of Roman law" which the school's "legist, imbued with the idea of the will of the Roman Emperor as law, were a potent influence in urging rulers to revolt against the Mystical Body." (100) The priest cites one of the most important interpretative books in this regard, Godefroid Kurth's The Church at the Turning Points of History.

Despite the school of Bologna and other warts, the years between the collapse of Rome and the Reformation and even for sometime afterwards, saw the flowering of Christianity and the building of the greatest civilization which had ever existed. While it had its problems, the Middle Ages, nevertheless, were a veritable heaven on earth compared to what was to come in its wake and what had existed before. For Fr. Fahey, the main difference between the eras was that the peoples of the Middle Ages had as their sovereign, Christ the King, while those that followed especially the last two centuries have replaced Him with the cult and divinization of mankind:

Modern society, under the influence of Satan, was to be organized on the opposite principle, namely, that human nature is of itself divine, that man is God, and therefore, subject to nobody. (97)

The divinization of mankind (pure naturalism) has now come full circle with the Second Vatican Council which created a new religion. While its proponents promised a New Springtime and an expansion of the faith, from the start, thousands and then millions have instead wisely fled from its clutches.

Writing in Ireland in the midst of WWII, which the country smartly remained out of despite tremendous pressure from the Anglo- American established to join the great crusade, Fr. Fahey did not directly speak of the war, but it can be assumed the one of the book's aims was to offer a model of social order after the hostilities had ceased. Not surprisingly, his view of a restored world contrasted significantly with those of the "Allied" statesmen. While the world ignored Fr. Fahey's and others' call for a return to the Kingship of Christ, the speeches, declarations and grandiose plans for a freer, equitable, more democratic, and less militaristic and authoritarian world promised by the likes of Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill never came to fruition especially once the Cold War set in.

Despite the platitudes contained in Roosevelt and Churchill's Atlantic Charter and Roosevelt's Four Freedoms, the U.S. and Great Britain teamed up and lavishly supported one of the greatest gangster states in human history - the Soviet Union - in their maniacal and, as it turned out, disastrous drive to crush the Axis Powers. None of the points contained in the Atlantic Charter, Four Freedoms, or other pronouncements about a "freer" post-war world were observed by Stalin's regime or the communist states which came into being after the war.

After the war, Eastern Europe was brutally occupied by the Soviets for some seventy years, subjugated to central planning which turned it into an economic basket case similar to Russia. Moreover, Eastern Europe and Russia became veritable prison camps where their populations were constantly spied upon and could not travel except in the rarest of cases.

While many modern-day conservatives and war hawks complain about Communist China, it was the United States' destruction of Japan - who was badgered and provoked into a preemptive attack on America - that created a vacuum in the Far East which led to communist take overs in China and its satellites. Just as important was Soviet Russia's role in the region which assisted the fledging communist movements in the following decades. Had the West (mostly the U.S.) not bailed out Russia during WWII, it would have probably collapsed and would have not attained the massive gains in the Far East from the war nor would it have provided the critical support to Mao-Tse-tung in his battle with Chiang Kai-shek.*

Whether one accepts such an interpretation of history or not, neither WWII or its predecessor was fought for the Kingship of Christ. WWII was a struggle for the supremacy between different versions of naturalism - in the West, liberal democracy and in the Soviet Union and the Far East, communism. The victors had no interest in a revival of Christianity. The new world order that emerged was built, in part, on the philosophical planks of religious liberty and indifferentism.

What is still surprising is how Catholics both then and now have taken so much pride in their participation and glorification of WWII


Organized Naturalism's ultimate goal is the eradication of Christianity. If this cannot be accomplished, then it must be separated from daily life as to have little or no influence on daily life. As it stands now, it appears that the naturalistic forces have won the day and are preparing their final assault.

The one-time opponent of organized naturalism was the Catholic Church, however, with its capture by the Modernists at the time of Vatican II, Newchurch has not only come to terms with naturalism, but embraces and extols its virtues. Thus, the ouster of the monsters who have taken over the Chruch is the most important and necessary duty of those who want a return to Christendom. The Novus Ordo must be treated like Pope Urban II treated the infidels when he called for a crusade to expunge them from the Holy Land.

Until the Church is righted, society will continue on its current descent not only from the observance of the Divine Law, but even that of the natural. While most believe that a rebirth can come about through the political process, despite the broken promises and lies of numerous eathly messiahs, such a mindset is hopelessly delusional.

The current battles whether they be Left versus Right, Red State versus Blue State, or Woke versus un-Woke, are all false dichotomies with neither side holding the principles of the Kingship of Christ as espouded in the pages of this book. For all sides of the political spectrum are in fundamental agreement in a world which does not place Christ the King as its head.

Fr. Fahey did not write these words as some sort of fantasy exercise to be discussed among theoreticians never to be implemented. Instead, he sought Catholic action not within the corrupt and non-Christian political structures of soceity, but outside of it through acts of non-compliance, separation, and disengagement while any activism should be that of education, evangelization and, if necessary, martyrdom.

The Kingship of Christ and Organized Naturalism lays out in stark terms the forces that need to be overcome if there is to be a return to the type of social order envisioned by the Divine Savior where its ethos is based on the law of loving Almighty God first and one's neighbor as one's self.
