What Happened to America? And the Catholic Church?

Noted at AOSHQ's Book Thread, a new offering by a WaTimes columnist which

...lights up the massive, Moscow-directed penetration of America's most hallowed halls of power, revealing not just the familiar struggle between Communism and the Free World, but the hidden war between those wishing to conceal the truth and those trying to expose the increasingly official web of lies...It was this moral surrender to deception and self-deception, West argues, that sent us down the long road to moral relativism, "political correctness," and other cultural ills...

There is a parallel, of course:  the Soviet Union's penetration of the Catholic Church, directed by Stalin and his successors.

That "moral relativism" thing is directly related to the current fad of "gradualism" in moral theology, notable for its presence in Amoris Laetitia.  That gradualism is preceded by deChardin's "Omega" flapjaw, by the way.  Can't really have one without the other.

The book?  Diana West's American Betrayal:  The Secret Assault on Our Nation's Character
