Plus catholique que le Pape

Some interesting reflections on the French political thinker Charles Maurras and Action Française.

But in the end it became apparent that Maurras, who might have been the most revered literary figure in France of his generation, and his almost equally brilliant collaborators Léon Daudet and Jacques Bainville were demonstrable neopagans and philosophical skeptics. The ax fell on them on December 20, 1926, when Pope Pius XI issued an admonition to French Catholics “to keep their distance from Action Française."

Again and again France is the breeding ground of intellectuals that are bent on destroying anything the pertains to Godliness by masking their attempts in so called heroic virtues.
