Before Il Fermo Proposito,and in the time of Non Expedit, Catholics voted and were elected in national elections in Italy .Sid Guttridge wrote: ↑12 Jan 2021 14:33Hi ljadw,
So now you are saying there was no "they were blessed by the pope"?
That you made it up?
I note that you still haven't put up the link you claimed said this.
I put it to you that you invented it and that is why you are refusing to put up the link.
And no, "No condemnation" does not "mean approval".
For instance, I don't recall you condemning, say, the so-called Holocaust, or Armenian genocide, or ISIS beheadings, or 9/11. Does this mean you approve? Of course not!
Article 18 of his 1905 Il Fermo Proposito: "....it was universally forbidden in Italy for Catholics to participate in the legislative power.". This is a direct and unambiguous statement of Vatican policy in that year. It may or may not have been what the then Pope preferred, but he wrote Il Fermo Proposito and that is the fact of the matter.
You will find NO condemnation from Pius X ,which means that he approved it .
And, your argument of the Holocaust is nonsense : I am not the pope .
