“It is very important to make a distinction between the Russia of today and the Soviet Union of 30 years ago – they are not the same.” – Father Nolan
Father Daniel Nolan of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP) is no stranger to controversy. His controversial nature was on full display as offered his sermon at Our Lady of Mount Carmel parish in Littleton, Colorado. In this sermon, he reminded the congregation that there are two sides to every issue regarding the Ukraine War. While he did not ask the congregation to choose a side, he did ask them to fully consider the facts and circumstances jumping on the bandwagon promoted by the world.
“We ought to obey God rather than men.” Acts 5:29
In September 2020, Father Nolan’s superiors banned him from posting videos online after stating Catholics need not follow draconian coronavirus mask mandates from their bishop or governor. In the ensuing outrage, the point of his message was missed entirely: he seemed to want people to exercise control over their own health and not to let others do it for them.
Ukraine’s sin versus Putin’s Carnage
Last month, in Father Nolan’s sermon, which was recorded privately by someone and posted to YouTube (it has since been removed), his true message may have been overwhelmed and missed by the liberal anger.
He spoke about the entire world running in outrage to hate Vladimir Putin and referred to it as a “rush to condemn.” He is concerned about the lack of balance in response to the invasion of Ukraine and the lack of media truth.
Father Nolan also revealed some little-known details about the former actor, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Specifically, he referenced Zelensky’s stand for abortion, legalizing prostitution, same-sex marriage, the LGBTQ lifestyle, and transgenderism. He reminded the congregation that, in Biblical terms, these are sins,
“This is not good. This is not good for the Ukrainian people. Who’s worse? Putin, who physically invaded Ukraine, or Zelensky, who invaded Ukraine spiritually? What’s worse? To cause someone to end up in a grave or to cause someone to go to hell?”
Nolan explained that Zelensky had been installed by “elites” like George Soros, Klaus Schwab, and other Globalists. Father Nolan explained that the goal of these elites is to usher in a New World Order with “One World Government” and no God. Father Nolan also referred to their Agenda 2030 communist plans, “In 2030, you will own nothing, and you will be happy. This is communism. This is the old Soviet Union.” RAIR Foundation USA has posted numerous articles about these Globalist goals (see below).
He claimed that many of the pictures of the Ukraine War were recycled from the 2014 Crimean war. However, he did not provide references for that statement.
Father Nolan remarked that the Russia of today is not the USSR of history because it is no longer Communist or Atheist. He referred to a Putin statement about Christianity via the Orthodox Churches being the foundation of Europe. He mentioned that Russia today is “no longer corrupt institutionally,” a controversial statement that only the Russian Oligarchs could answer.
Father Nolan once again has become a point of controversy, becoming the antithesis of the world’s actions.
