Cardinal Müller: ‘This U.S. Election Will Decide Who Rules the World, Democracy or Communism’

The Stream's John Zmirak joins Steve Skojec to talk about Church, State, and this election. Then he joins Eric Metaxas to talk about the Biden Family Crime Wave.

The Stream’s John Zmirak joins Steve Skojec, founder of OnePeterFive, to talk about the “Stalinism” expected of Catholics by Pope Francis, and the stakes of the upcoming U.S. election.

Stuff you probably didn’t know:

  • Until 1870, popes faced checks and balances on their power within the Church.
  • Until 1905, the Catholic ruler of Austria-Hungary could veto a candidate elected as pope, if he thought him unfit to rule. That happened in 1905, resulting in St. Pius X becoming pope instead of a liberal cardinal. 
  • The proper basis for coercive laws is neither utilitarian pragmatism, nor divine revelation, but natural law that God wrote on every human heart.

Learn this and more in this lively, funny, 90-minute dialogue.


Not enough Zmirak for you? Watch him talk with the great Eric Metaxas about the Biden Family Crime Wave, and why he thinks Donald Trump will “ride a coyote to victory” on Tuesday.
