The folly of Mr. John Zmirak
And it came to pass, that in those days there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that the whole world should be enrolled. This enrolling was first made by Cyrinus, the governor of Syria. And all went to be enrolled, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem: because he was of the house and family of David, To be enrolled with Mary his espoused wife, who was with child.
The folly of Mr. John Zmirak:
Is the pope calling here for a worldwide state, with coercive authority, that will govern all men at once? ….On this point I must say respectfully to His Holiness: Not in this lifetime
When the world was universally governed by the Pagan Roman Emperor, Christ was born. To follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ means that one must reject universal governing authority? No, Mr Zmirak if the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity chose to be governed by Universal Authority what makes you so special to refuse the same? Any Roman Catholic who refuses to be governed by universal authority that will govern all men at once also refuses to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, The Blessed Mother and St Joseph. It was appropriate that the Holy Family should be governed by universal authority that governed all men at once. The Holy Family were faithful citizens to Universal Authority of the Pagan Roman Emperor.
