It is due to Catholic and Royal France that there is a United States in the first place. We were taught that our Founding Fathers were the bravest of the brave, who selflessly, with blood-bandaged feet and bloodied faces, shed the shackles of serfdom for freedom. But the truth is, without the Catholic and Royal French, specifically Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette, they never would have won. Never mind the help they received from the likes of the Frenchman Lafayette. Without France, we would all be speaking with a British accent and subject to the British Crown like our Canadian neighbors to the north.
Our true “founding fathers” are the likes of Queen Isabel of Spain, King Charles I of England, and Kings Louis XIV – XVI of France.
The problem was not our founding, our real founding, it was the usurpation of New Christendom therein by separation of Church and State republican sentiments and other “enlightenment” philosophies.
